Clint Eastwood

Max von Sydow, one of the finest actors from Sweden, has died at the age of 90. Von Sydow featured in more than 100 films and TV series. His most memorable film roles include Knight Antonius Block in Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (1957). He also played Jesus Christ in “The Greatest Story Ever Told”, William Friedkin’s “The Exorcist”, David Lynch’s “Dune”, Woody Allen’s “Hannah and Her Sisters”, Steven Spielberg’s “Minority Report” and Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island”. He later appeared in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” as Three-eyed Raven, for which he received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination. Throughout his long career he received two Academy Award nominations for his performances in “Pelle the Conqueror” and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close”.

Rest in peace Max and thank you for all fantastic movie/tv characters and films.

I said it already when the second trailer came out, Joaquin Phoenix will win the Oscar for his portrait of Arthur Fleck who becomes the Joker. A film that put the focus on mental health, a global issue we need to continue to address and handle much much more going forward. Joaquin Phoenix is magnificent as Arthur Fleck making him so alive as a person and “Joker” is a magnificent piece of film by Todd Phillips that leaves you lost for words. So well deserved Joaquin and thank you for a great emotional Oscar acceptance speech. 

 

 

Rest in peace Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas. What a true moviestar. #KirkDouglas

Terry Jones 1942-2020, one of the comic pillars of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, has sadly passed away after some years with dementia. A sad sad day… 😢#MontyPythonsFlyingCircus #TerryJones

Looks fantastic. I hear Oscar bells for Joaquin Phoenix. #Joker

Sylvester Stallone is looking to turn 1986 cop thriller “Cobra” into a streaming TV series. With this news it makes sense to bring out the old discussion on why the film is still not released in a “Director´s Cut” version. The first rough cut was over two hours long (the closest estimated original running time is 130 minutes). It was then shortened to a roughly two-hour director’s cut which was intended to be released in theaters. However, after “Top Gun” became a smash hit, Stallone and Warner Bros. were worried that Cobra – which would premiere the following week – would be overshadowed, so in order to ensure at least one extra screening each day the movie was heavily re-edited. Stallone removed much of the plot and scenes involving characters other than his own. Warner Bros. also demanded that the more graphic scenes be cut down or removed entirely because they were “too intense,” and that some action scenes be cut for pacing.

I still want to see the two-hour director’s cut as it was intended. Make it happen Mr. Stallone and Warner Bros.

One of my favourite actors from my youth, Rutger Hauer, has sadly passed away at the age of 75. 😞 Maybe mostly known for the iconic character Roy Batty in “Blade Runner” from 1982, but he gave us as well classic films like “Nighthawks”, “Ladyhawke”, “Flesh+Blood”, “The Hitcher”, “Wanted: Dead or Alive”, “The Blood of Heroes” and “A Breed Apart”. Rest in peace Rutger.

Robin Williams would´ve been 68 years old today. Rest in peace. #RobinWilliams
