Niki Caro was making only her 2nd movie when she wrote and directed Whale Rider, so she showed the world her skills really early on. This sweet story aimed directly at kids (despite its absurd PG rating) is all about an ordinary (yet also magical) girl from New Zealand who loves her grandfather to pieces, but the maddening gramps is a slave to the patriarchy and blames his granddaughter for every problem in the village. It takes him so very long to realize that…she's The One. Keisha Castle-Hughes made her debut here and she is tremendous, as are all the key players in the cast. This remains a delightful and emotional motion picture all these years later, even if Rawiri Paratene's cruel grandpa is hard to like for almost the entire running time. The word “hate” was thrown around. Anyway, don't sulk in bed because life threw a few rocks your way. Just curl up with the 416th Ellises' Analysis and accept (and for the love of Paikea return) the love offered to you by the awesomest people in your life, whether they can ride a whale or not. Well, Actually: We changed our schedule between the recording of this episode and the recording of the next one (which will be Minari), so that's why there's no Coming Attractions Trivia question. Also, Jackie Cooper was an even-younger Best Actor nominee in 1931 than Keisha Castle-Hughes was a Best Actress nominee in 2003. Also also, Koro has a whale's tooth necklace, not a a shark's tooth necklace. When you're up all night trying to un-beach a bunch of whales, you should buy heaps of Sparkplug Coffee.

Book Vs. Movie: The Bad Seed  The 1954 Novel Vs the1956 Film The Margos finish out the month of October with our final scary book & movie for the season--The Bad Seed. Written by William March and published in 1954 shortly before his death by a heart attack at the age of 60. The first adaptation was a play in the same year the book was published and starred Nancy Kelly (who won the Tony in 1955 for Best Actress,) Patty McCormack, and Eileen Heckert who would all go on to play their same parts in the film version in 1956.  The story of Rhoda Penmark, an eight-year-old child who just happens to possess murderous impulses, and her mother who may or may not be the “reason” she is a sociopath was a HUGE publishing hit and nominated for the National Book Award for Fiction.  Part of it was the psychology used to try and find out why Christine is so afraid of her daughter and why she feels responsible due to her own serial killer parent. (If it's not one thing, it's your mother!)   The film earned Kelly, Heckert, and McCormack Academy Award nominations for their performances and earned $4 million at the box office. The ending changed dramatically from the original version to the film due to the Hays Code but it still delivers scares after all of these years.  So, between the novel and the movie--which did we prefer?  In this ep the Margos discuss: The life of writer William March How psychology was used blatantly in movies in the 1950s.  The main differences between the novel & film.  Starring: Nancy Kelly (Christine Penmark,) Patty McCormack (Rhoda Penmark,) Henry Jones (Leroy Jessup,) Eileen Heckert (Hortense Daigle,) Evelyn Varden (Monica Breedlove,) Willam Hopper (Kenneth Penmark,) and Paul Fix as Richard Bravo.  Clips used: Leroy taunts Rhoda The Bad Seed  trailer Rhoda burns Leroy Monica and crew talk about psychology and murder Christine talks about being adopted  Music by Alex North Book Vs.

Aliens | Sigourney Weaver | Michael Biehn | Paul Reiser| James Cameron | [1986] Aliens is a 1986 science fiction action film written and directed by James Cameron. It is the sequel to the 1979 science fiction horror film Alien, and the second film in the Alien franchise. Set in the far future, the film stars Sigourney Weaver as Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of an alien attack on her ship. When communications are lost with a human colony on the moon on which her crew first encountered the alien creatures, Ripley agrees to return to the site with a troop of Colonial Marines to investigate. Aliens features Michael Biehn, Paul Reiser, Lance Henriksen, and Carrie Henn in supporting roles. Despite the success of Alien, its sequel took years to develop; it was delayed by lawsuits, a lack of enthusiasm from 20th Century Fox, and repeated changes in management. Based on his scripts for The Terminator (1984) and Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), Cameron was hired to write a story for Aliens in 1983. The project stalled again until new Fox executive Lawrence Gordon pursued a sequel. Although relatively inexperienced, Cameron was given the director role based on his success directing The Terminator. On an approximately $18.5 million budget, Aliens began principal photography in September 1985. Like its development, filming was tumultuous and rife with conflicts between Cameron and the British crew at Pinewood Studios. James Horner composed the film's score. The difficult shoot also affected Horner, who was given little time to record the music. Aliens was released on July 18, 1986, to critical acclaim. It was well received for its action, but some reviewers were critical of the intensity of some scenes. Sigourney Weaver's performance received consistent praise; other members of the cast were positively received, including Bill Paxton and Jenette Goldstein who played Colonial Marines. The film received a number of awards and nominations, including an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for Weaver at a time when the science-fiction genre was generally overlooked. The film earned $131.1–183.3 million during its theatrical run, one of the highest-grossing films of 1986 worldwide. Aliens is now considered to be among the greatest films of the 1980s, one of the best science-fiction or action films ever made, and one of the best sequels ever made. It has been called equal to (or better than) Alien. Aliens is credited with expanding the franchise's scope with additions to the series' lore and factions such as the Colonial Marines. #Aliens #SigourneyWeaver #JamesCameron #BillPaxton #MichaelBiehn #PaulReiser #DavidGiler #WalterHill #DanOBannon #RonaldShusett #GaleAnnHurd #AdrianBiddle #RayLovejoy #JamesHorner #20thCenturyFox #BrandywineProductions #UnitedStates #Aliens1986 #ScienceFiction #MovieByte #MovieBytePodcast #JustChillinEntertainment --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Follow Us: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/moviebytepod...

DIOR TALKS
[Feminism] Felicity Jones talks about acting, gender politics and her rejection of all-male environments

Welcome to ‘Feminism', the latest series of ‘Dior Talks' podcasts, hosted by Justine Picardie. ‘Dior Talks' creates fascinating spaces for expression, exploring the imaginations and discourses of the artists and thinkers who influence Maria Grazia Chiuri. ‘Feminism' engages in dialogue with the women who have inspired the Creative Director of Women's collections and taken part in bold, empowering collaborations with the House. An exceptional roster of guests shares the magic of their thinking and the key moments of their careers with biographer and journalist Justine Picardie. This episode finds actress Felicity Jones talks about the huge changes which have taken place in the worlds of theater, film and television in the last few years, with the advent of the #MeToo movement and the increasing challenge to patriarchal structures. Through her more than twenty-five-year career, Jones has seen a revolution in gender politics across the board and has been witness to the exposure of the misogyny which she herself has experienced in the industry. She and Picardie also discuss women in the history of literature, both in drama and prose, and how long it has taken film and television to catch up with the central role which female characters have always had in the culture and canon. Felicity Jones was born in Birmingham in 1983, to an advertising executive mother and journalist father. She started acting at age 11, in an after-school workshop run by Central Television. At 14 she was starring in the TV series The Worst Witch and had a long-running role in the BBC Radio 4 soap opera The Archers. She has starred in many major television productions in the UK, as well as in the USA, and has appeared in numerous stage plays, including at the Donmar Warehouse and Royal Court Theatre. In 2011, she won a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Festival and has also been nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards, the BAFTAs and the Golden Globes. In 2018, she starred in On the Basis of Sex, a biography of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Here, Picardie and Jones get to the heart of the female experience of the world of acting. Picardie is a longtime admirer of the actress's work, and their conversation travels from industry dynamics, the frustrations of working on an all-male set, the snail's pace of the industry's promotion of women's leading roles and the changes and challenges which Jones has seen and overcome. They delve into the problematic notion of male genius and its erasure of historic female collaboration, and they discuss the remarkable life and career of Bader Ginsburg. The actress is a fan of Maria Grazia Chiuri and has worn her creations for Dior many times, and at many key events in her career. As she herself puts it, Chiuri designs clothes which a woman “can wear down the pub”, an apt expression of the feminism and freedom which fashion can nurture.

DeMille was one of the first to recognize Kathy's talent.  Originally hired for a small part in the epic motion picture “The Ten Commandments”, Kathy was noticed by the great director who had special scenes written into the movie to highlight the little girl.   During her teenage years, Kathy added radio and stage to her burgeoning film and television career and was a freshman majoring in speech at UCLA when she was cast in “Family Affair” to star as “Cissy” alongside Brian Keith and Sebastian Cabot.  One of the warmest and most enduring series of the 1960's and 70's, Family Affair earned Kathy a host of accolades such as Best Actress from the “Family Television Awards” and continues to be popular today and is available on Amazon Prime. Today Kathy is an active, accomplished, and versatile actress, appearing in such films as "Sweet November" and "The Princess Diaries".  Kathy is also very much in demand for her numerous vocal characterizations and is best known as “Firestar”, a mutant super hero in the Spiderman and his Amazing Friends TV series.  Kathy has also recorded audiobooks for Brilliance Audio, Dove, Listen and Live and her voice has been heard in "Apollo 13" (which was awarded the Academy Award for sound), "Ransom", "Back Draft" and "Jingle all the Way", all directed by Ron Howard.    Kathy also added author to her long list of accomplishments. Her first book, "The Family Affair Cookbook", was a tasty trip down memory lane and her 2015 memoir, "Surviving Cissy: My Family Affair of Life in Hollywood" was just released in paperback.  This year, Kathy has two more books scheduled for publication: "TV Dinners with a Side Dish of Stars" and, to celebrate the 55th anniversary of "Family Affair", "Family Affair: A Pictorial Scrapbook" will be released in September.   Currently, Kathy can be seen on her YouTube channel cooking show, "Cooking with Kathy and Scot" and she'll soon be launching a podcast called "All Things Classic" with director, writer, producer John Norton.  She is a regular at comic conventions and autograph shows where she greets her many fans.  Kathy joined us from her home in Bell Canyon, CA.

It's time to grab a "window seat" and be on your best "model behavior" as hosts Bobby and Kristina discuss 2017's Amélie and 2010's Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown on episode fourteen of My Favorite Flop.   ABOUT AMÉLIE Based on the 2001 French film of the same name, Amélie tells the story of a shy waitress who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better while struggling with her own isolation. The musical features music by Daniel Messé, lyrics by Messé and Nathan Tysen, and a book by Craig Lucas. Following out-of-town tryouts at Berkeley Repertory and The Ahmanson, the musical finally opened to mixed reviews on Broadway on April 3, 2017. Despite praise for its cast and design elements, many critics found issue with the score, and the show struggled at the box office. When the show failed to receive any Tony nominations in an extremely competitive season, the show closed on May 21, 2017, after 27 previews and 56 regular performances. A substantially transformed production, with new orchestrations, an expanded repertoire of songs, and new staging in the actor/muso style, opened on the West End in December 2019, at the Other Palace. Critics praised its improvements on the Broadway version, with The Guardian describing it as "a triumph of adaptation" "high on imagination", while The Daily Telegraph lauded the "wonderful, wistful evening" it made. It was nominated for three awards at the 2020 Laurence Olivier Awards: Best New Musical, Best Original Score or New Orchestrations, and Best Actress in a Musical.   Original Broadway Cast Phillipa Soo as Amélie Adam Chanler-Berat as Nino Tony Sheldon as Dufayel/Collignon David Andino as Blind Beggar/Garden Gnome/Anchorperson Randy Blair as Hipolito/Rock Star/Belgian Tourist Heath Calvert as Lucien/Adrien Wells/Mysterious Man Alison Cimmet as Amandine/Philomene Savvy Crawford as Young Amélie Manoel Felciano as Raphael/Bretodeau Harriett D. Foy as Suzanne Alyse Alan Louis as Georgette/Sylvie/Collignon's Mother Maria-Christina Oliveras as Gina Paul Whitty as Joseph/Fluffy/Collignon's Father ABOUT WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN Based on the Pedro Almodóvar film of the same name, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown tells the tale of a group of women in late 20th-century Madrid whose relationships with men lead to a tumultuous 48 hours of love, confusion, and passion. The musical features music and lyrics by David Yazbek and a book by Jeffrey Lane. Following a series of workshops in 2009 featuring Salma Hayek, Jessica Biel, Matthew Morrison and Paulo Szot, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown opened on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre on November 4, 2010. The production was a limited engagement that was scheduled to end on January 23, 2011, but due to low grosses and ticket sales, closed early on January 2, 2011. At the time of closing, the show had played 30 previews and 69 regular performances. A West End production, also directed by Bartlett Sher and starring Tamsin Greig, Jérôme Pradon, Haydn Gwynne, Anna Skellern, and Willemijn Verkaik opened at the Playhouse Theatre on January 12, 2015 for a 20-week run, and subsequently extended its run, but it was ultimately announced that the production would close on May 23, 2015. Greig and Gwynne were nominated for Best Actress in a Musical and Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Musical respectively at the 2015 Laurence Olivier Awards.   Original Broadway Cast Sherie Rene Scott as Pepa Patti LuPone as Lucia Brian Stokes Mitchell as Ivan Julio Agustin as Ambite De'Adre Aziza as Paulina Laura Benanti as Candela Danny Burstein as Taxi Driver Alma Cuervo as Woman in Cinema/Ivan's Concierge/Magistrate 2 Justin Guarini as Carlos Murphy Guyer as Hector/TV Husband/Magistrate/Chief Inspector Nina Lafarga as Woman at Train/Ana Nikka Graff Lanzarone as Marisa Yanira Marin as Ensemble Sean McCourt as Man in Cinema/Doctor/Detective Vivian Nixon as Ensemble Mary Beth Peil as Pepa's Concierge/TV and Radio Announcer Luis Salgado as Malik Jennifer Sánchez as Cristina Phillip Spaeth as Ensemble Matthew Steffens as Ensemble Charlie Sutton as Man at Train/Telephone Repairman
