The actor, who started his career out of college, having been unable to even get a role in college plays, rocketed to stardom. He started on TV with some small parts and partnering up with Peter Scolari on Bosom Buddies. But when Splash gained so much success, producers and directors started using him more in bigger roles. He had a series of successful comedies in the 80's like Bachelor Party (1984), The Money Pit (1986), Dragnet (1987), and Turner and Hooch (1989). Big really shot Hanks's popularity in 1988, and he started dipping his toe in some romance roles like Joe versus the Volcano (1990), Sleepless in Seattle (1993), and You've Got Mail (1998). And his role as Woody in Toy Story (1995) continues to evolve and become popular and has even inspired a new Disney park area. But it was his role in the drama Philadelphia (1993) that won him his first Oscar, only to be followed up the following year with Forrest Gump (1994) with another Oscar. Plus other incredible performances in Apollo 13 (1995), Saving Private Ryan (1998), and The Green Mile (1999) He continues to create well-liked films with humor, drama, and emotion into the 21st century with memorable roles in movies like Cast Away (2000), Saving Mr. Banks (2013), and Elvis (2022) Are you a fan of Tom Hanks? What are some of your favorite performances? First person that emails me with the subject line, “Life is like a box of chocolates” will get a special mention on the show. Let us know.

Directing is not about being a dictator but about letting things happen.After selling a couple of scripts in New York but feeling burned by the lack of production companies, George Gallo decided to take his 800 bucks and try luck in Los Angeles. After knocking on many doors and a lot of cold calling, he sold MGM a script for a movie.

He was awarded "The Stanley Kramer Mad, Mad World Award" for comedy and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the "Monte Carlo Comedy Film Festival" for his film "The Comeback Trail," starring Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, Zach Braff, Emile Hirsch, and Eddie Griffin.

Book Vs Movie Coal Miner's Daughter The Margos Head to Butcher Hollow to Talk About One of the Top Country Music Artists of All TimeLoretta Lynn is a multi-hyphen: singer, songwriter, musician, wife, mother, and author. The Margos were thrilled to discover that the 1980 movie Coal Miner's Daughter was based on her 1976 autobiography of the same name. As superfans--we needed to bring this episode to our followers--you are all welcome!Loretta began her life in Butcher Hollow, Kentucky and later became one of the most revered & successful artists in recorded music. She was the oldest of eight children and by the time she was just shy of 16--she married her life mate Oliver “Doolittle” Webb. The film stars an incandescent Sissy Spacek as Lynn, Tommy Lee Jones as “Doo” Lynn, and Levon Helm (of “The Band” fame) as her father, Ted Webb. Sure, you can argue that the movie follows the “music biopic” re the humble beginnings, the creation of the first hit song, drugs, loneliness, and the downside of fame. But dammit if this film isn't first-class entertainment features incredible live singing performances and a complicated love story. And the hair in this film? To die for! Spacy won an Academy Award for her performance and the film aired on cable TV in the United States repeatedly throughout the 1980ss which means there is an entire generation that knows this movie backward & forwards. Lynn just released her second book Me & Patsy: Kickin' Up Dust which is all about her friendship with the legendary Patsy Cline. At 87--she continues to be creative and vital. An example of resiliency to us all!So between the autobiography and the movie, which did we like better?

Mielőtt 1998-ban két különböző filmben is aszteroidák becsapódása fenyegette volna az emberiséget, 1997-ben is két mozi készült azonos, jelen esetben vulkános témában. A katasztrófát merőben más megközelítéssel feldolgozó mozik a kor legnagyobb sztárjait vonultatták fel: míg a Pierce Brosnan és Linda Hamilton főszereplésével készült film a tudományos megalapozottságot helyezte előtérbe, addig Tommy Lee Jones és a szeptemberben drámai körülmények között elhunyt Anne Heche a szórakoztatás olcsóbbik oltárán volt kénytelen feláldozni színészi tehetségét.

Today on the show I bring you one of the most influential and iconic writers/directors in the history of cinema, three-time Oscar® winner Oliver Stone. Throughout his legendary career, Stone has served as writer, director, and producer on a variety of films, documentaries, and television movies. His films have been nominated for forty-two Oscars® and have won twelve.Stone began his career as a screenwriter, though always had his eye on being a writer/director. He struggled years before being hired to write the true-life prison story Midnight Express, for which he won his first Oscar®. Stone further wrote Brian De Palma'sdrug lord epic Scarface, Year of the Dragon featuring Mickey Rourke, and John Milius's Conan the Barbarian.His first outing as a director was Seizure, an exploitation horror film he directed right out of film school, and the thriller The Hand, starring Michael Caine. Stone finally broke through as a director with his film Salvador, a violent look at the chaos of war as seen through the lens of an amoral photojournalist during the Salvadoran Civil War.This is one of Stone's most underrated works. It was critically acclaimed but commercially didn't hit the mark.After Salvador, he jumped right into directing Platoon, the film that would catapult Stone into the stratosphere. Platoon would go on to be nominated for eight Academy Awards and won four including Best Picture, Best Director for Stone, Best Sound, and Best Film Editing.Platoon was the first in a trilogy the Stone made about the Vietnam War, the other films were Born on the Fourth of July starring Tom Cruise and Heaven & Earth starring Tommy Lee Jones.After Salvador Stone directed nine films in ten years. During that decade he created some of the most memorable films in cinematic history including the decade-defining Wall Street, JFK, The Doors, Natural Born Killers, and Nixon. Stone says his films are"first and foremost dramas about individuals in personal struggles,"and considers himself a dramatist rather than a political filmmaker. Politics definitely are a subject matter he enjoys making movies about. 2008's W., a film about American President George W. Bush, was the first film in history released about a sitting president. This film wrapped up his trilogy on the presidency which he started with JFK and Nixon.Stone's filmography is peppered with notable films and masterpieces including 1997 road movie/film noir, U-Turn, 1999's Any Given Sunday, a film about power struggles within an NFL-style football team, and World Trade Center, based on the true story of survival during the September 11 attacks.In 2004 Stone tackled another giant historical figure, Alexander the Great. His film Alexander, starring Colin Farrell, Anthony Hopkins, and Angelina Jolie, had a rough road and major studio interference.Stone later re-edited the film into a two-part 3-hour 37-minute film Alexander Revisited: The Final Cut, which later became a cash cow for Warner Brothersbecoming one of the highest-selling films in their back catalog.In 2010, Stone directed his first-ever sequel, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. In this film, he returns to Wall Street during the 2008 financial crisis. Famous onscreen villain Gordon Gekko Michael Douglas returns. Gekko teaches co-star Shia LaBeoufthe ins and outs of criminal investments.Frost/Nixon's Frank Langellaco-stars along with Susan Sarandon. I personally have a deep connection with his film Wall Street as it was the subject of the first short film I ever wrote, directed, and edited in high school.Speaking to Oliver was a dream come true. Many of his films have impacted popular culture in a way that is uniquely his. During my time working at a video store, it seemed every film he released was a cultural bomb. Natural Born Killers was the first time I saw a modern director use multiple formats in one film.His last film Snowden tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world.He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of recent years.During our epic conversation, we discuss his legendary career, working with the Hollywood system, his time in Vietnam, struggling as a screenwriter, how he deals with rejection, and his amazing new book Chasing the Light: Writing, Directing, and Surviving Platoon, Midnight Express, Scarface, Salvador, and the Movie Game.Chasing the Light is an intimate memoir by the controversial and outspoken Oscar-winning director and screenwriter about his complicated New York childhood, volunteering for combat, and his struggles and triumphs making such films as Platoon, Midnight Express, and Scarface.Before the international success of Platoon in 1986, Oliver Stone had been wounded as an infantryman in Vietnam and spent years writing unproduced scripts while driving taxis in New York, finally venturing westward to Los Angeles and a new life.Stone, now 73, recounts those formative years with in-the-moment details of the high and low moments: We see meetings with Al Pacino over Stone's scripts for Scarface, Platoon, and Born on the Fourth of July; the harrowing demon of cocaine addiction following the failure of his first feature, The Hand (starring Michael Caine); his risky on-the-ground research of Miami drug cartels for Scarface; his stormy relationship with The Deer Hunter director Michael Cimino; the breathless hustles to finance the acclaimed and divisive Salvador; and tensions behind the scenes of his first Academy Award-winning film, Midnight Express.Chasing the Light is a true insider's look at Hollywood's years of upheaval in the 1970s and '80s. I highly recommend every filmmaker and screenwriter read this gem. Click here to read the book.The main themes I took away from speaking to Oliver were struggle and fight. No matter how successful he got, no matter what heights he reached in Hollywood Oliver Stone had to fight to get each remarkable film in his filmography on the screen.To this day he still gets rejected all the time. Throughout his career, he would jump from Hollywood studio to independent film. He wrote both Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July over a decade before they were produced because no one in Hollywood believed in what he was trying to say with those films. Platoon, The Doors, Midnight Express, Salvador, and Talk Radio were all indie films.I hope this conversation inspires filmmakers and screenwriters to never give up. Oliver struggled for years taking jobs as a production assistant, cab driver, office assistant, and any other gig he could find to help him survive while he was chasing his dream. He wrote and wrote, meeting his goal of one to two screenplays a year, no matter what. Never give up, never surrender. As Oliver says"Either you're born crazy or you're born boring."Please enjoy my conversation with Oliver Stone.
Harrison Ford vs Tommy Lee Jones vs Big Pharma! This iconic 90s action movie is so 90s with lots of 90s stuff (*cough* Sela Ward *cough*) happening. That said, is it just your basic white male fantasy about a husband who may or may not have killed his wife a la The Staircase? Tangents include Miles Teller, the truth about hair dye, the probability that Lindsey's dad fucked an alien (SPOILER ALERT: incredibly high odds), and what Tommy Lee must look like under those clothes.
It's Top Gun but with Helicopters and a bonkers performance from Nic Cage! Fire Birds came out about 6 years too late, but it gave a try at recapturing the magic by casting Tommy Lee Jones and Sean Young across from Nic. But hey, at least one of those people did a great job! Bad Movies Rule is a movie podcast about the movies you love even if no one else does.

Welcome to The Old Dog Pack Show — the world's premier podcast regarding the mind, body, soul, and money of the middle-aged man. In episode 57, the boys return after Brian's long, mysterious illness. They talk the British Monarchy. They talk about raging hormones on youth group ski trips. They do the Budweiser vs Coors taste test (no light versions). Brian demonstrates his ignorance by failing to recognize the greatness of The Statler Brothers. Of course, no ODP espisode is complete without a Barry DeVorzon sighting, and Craig provides his review of "Rolling Thunder" with Tommy Lee Jones and the great William Devane. Finally, Brian regales us with tales of his one night with Joan Jett. If you would like to do us a big favor, go on over to Apple Podcasts and leave a 5 star rating and/or a short review.

This episode take a trip back with us to 2012 for the final (?) installment of the Men in Black trilogy. This time Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are up against time travel with a new star joining them in Josh Brolin. This installment seems a little more grown up. Will this be a movie theatre regret or a blockbuster fave? --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/loyaloats/message
It's a car movie starring a young Tommy Lee Jones as a sex symbol. And it's not Black Moon Rising. We already did that one. No, this movie is MUCH MUCH WEIRDER. The Betsy pretends to be a car movie, but it's possibly got the least car content of any movie we've covered here on Reels and Wheels (and we include Spaceballs in that tally). Joining us for this podcast is Joe Ligo. Joe is a filmmaker working on a documentary about American Motors... and that's how he discovered The Betsy. In a rare moment, AMC allowed the cameras to roll at their headquarters and everyone he interviewed for the documentary talked about it. But... but... this movie. It's all over the place. It's an attempt at a dramatization of Henry Ford's life, with a lot more sordid details added in (and given Henry Ford's life, adding more sordid details is an accomplishment). It's just bizarre. And bad.

Holmberg's Morning Sickness - The Entertainment Drill - Friday August 12, 2022
THIS IS A PREVIEW PODCAST. NOT THE FULL REVIEW. Please check out the full podcast review on our Patreon Page by subscribing over at - https://www.patreon.com/NextBestPicture Our 2012 retrospective is coming to an end this month. Our second to last throwback podcast review is Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook & Tommy Lee Jones. Written by Tony Kushner, the film was a perfect merger of writer, actor, and director coming together to present an iconic figure in American history but finding ways to humanize him and showcase the most important period of his life rather than telling us a traditional biopic. The film received 12 Oscar nominations and won 2, including a third historic Best Actor win for Daniel Day-Lewis. How does the film hold up a decade later? Tune in as we discuss the screenplay, acting by the enormous ensemble, Spielberg's craftsmanship, and more. Joining me for this review, I have Nicole Ackman, Josh Parham, Sara Clements, Dan Bayer & Danilo Castro. You can also check out all of our previous 2012 retrospective reviews for "Zero Dark Thirty," "Skyfall," "Amour," "Beasts Of The Southern Wild," "Django Unchained," "Silver Linings Playbook" & "Life Of Pi" if you have not done so already. Also, voting for the 2012 NBP Film Community Award winners is underway until August 13th. Thank you. We hope you enjoy it! Check out more on NextBestPicture.com Please subscribe on...
