The Best of Charlton Heston

Friday, April 11th, 2008

IGN has a tribute to the legendary actor, Charlton Heston.

He finally, really did it…

With the passing of screen icon Charlton Heston this weekend at age 84, it seems only fitting to take a look at some of his most notable roles in terms of how they’ve affected the genres of cinema that are the bread and butter of an outlet like IGN. The action film, the sci-fi opus, and the epic were all the purview of Mr. Heston in his film career, which spanned some 100 movies. And while many of IGN’s readers are perhaps too young to realize it, if it weren’t for Heston, we today might not have valid big-budget genre films (Heston helped make sci-fi legit with Planet of the Apes), the square-jawed and reticent hero archetype, or even Will Smith blasting mutants with a quip in I Am Legend (Smith was still in diapers when Heston was doing the same in The Omega Man).

One may not have agreed with Heston’s politics (he became increasingly conservative later in life) and it was easy for the liberals to poke fun at his “From my cold, dead hands!” NRA image, but there’s no getting around the fact that this was an actor who seemed to truly be what his Hollywood image presented him as.

What follows then is just a handful of our favorite Heston performances. And to paraphrase his Planet of the Apes character, we can almost imagine Heston’s final words before leaving this earthly plane: “I leave the 21st century with no regrets…”

The Ruins Movie Review

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

Fans of the horror genre are going to love The Ruins. Read the review. I think that I’ll see this one.

Not since Little Shop of Horrors have plants taken such a front seat in film, but The Ruins brings the foliage back… with a vengeance. Watching the film, which is based on the popular Scott B. Smith novel (he also wrote the screenplay), is like coming face-to-face with a fear you never knew you had, and the fact that it manages to make creeping vines terrifying is a testament to all involved. A hundred stock, mock-witty catchphrases like “horror that gets under your skin” could be applied to the flick, but really what it does is get in your head.

The story plays out like a mash-up of two lesser films: Turistas and Cabin Fever. A pair of young, vacationing couples in Mexico is at the tail end of their holiday when they run into a German tourist poolside. He details a rare and off-the-beaten track archaeological dig that his brother is involved in. Mathias, the German, hasn’t spoken to his brother for days, but isn’t concerned. He blows off his lack of contact and puts his new friends at ease; his brother is just excited by the dig, he explains.

Smith is smart to keep the group accessible. The two couples are people we all know: Stacy (Laura Ramsey, of The Real Cancun fame) and Eric (Shawn Ashmore) are easy, in-love folks who are up for anything. Jeff (Jonathon Tucker) is in med school and a little controlling; the only member of the group who is visiting Mexico for anything besides beach, beer and ass. Ultimately, it’s important he’s a med student because there is a good deal of impromptu surgery on the menu later in the film. His girlfriend Amy (Jena Malone) is restless and impetuous, and when she drinks she makes a failed pass at Mathias. This has happened before.

So… while the audience is waiting for the other frond to drop, the fivesome sets off to the jungle, despite some cryptic warnings from their taxi driver and protests from Amy. Of course, the naysayers are correct: This group should not be heading into the jungle. Their hike up to the “ruins” is a death march and we all know it.

The Secrets of Quantum Solace

Friday, April 4th, 2008

We’ve got the secrets of Quantum Solace right here. Beware! There are more than a few spoilers!

IGN Movies was among the select international media outlets invited last week to visit the Chilean set of the forthcoming James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. The Marc Forster-directed film finds 007 (once again played by Daniel Craig) on a quest to uncover the shadowy terrorist organization behind the events depicted in 2006’s Casino Royale, the long-running franchise’s most successful entry.

Filming took place at the Residencia of the Paranal Observatory located in the arid, Martian-like Atacama desert, a two-hour bus ride from the coastal city of Antofagasta. At over 8000 feet above sea level, the air is thin at the Residencia and the sky is so clear that the moon is already visible at 11 a.m. The sun is hotter than it feels there; one could suffer a nasty sunburn in no time, even though the temperature feels like a deceptively mild California climate. For full coverage of our set visit, check out our fellow Fox Interactive Media site Rotten Tomatoes. The following report will provide you with a wealth of juicy details about Quantum of Solace that we learned while in Chile, so be advised that there’s more than a quantum of SPOILERS ahead.

Quantum of Solace finds Bond on the trail of businessman Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a key member of the shadowy organization that 007 has been investigating. Producer Michael G. Wilson revealed to us that this shadowy network is called Quantum; Greene even sports a silver “Q” lapel pin. To the public, Greene is an eco-friendly tycoon, the head of the Greene Planet corporation who’s out to help save the world. But this public persona conceals a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Although the filmmakers were quick to point out that Quantum of Solace is not a political film but pure Bondian escapist entertainment, the villain’s scheme revolves around several timely ideas, such as the issue of regime change.

Exclusive: Trek’s Chekov Talks

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Anton Yelchin, talks about playing Pavel Chekhov in the upcoming Star Trek XI.

It’s not that Anton Yelchin doesn’t want to talk about his role in the new Star Trek; it’s more that whatever the 19-year-old actor does say about playing Starship Enterprise navigator Pavel Chekov – and he’s obviously sworn to secrecy on any major disclosures – is likely to take on a existence of its own: life, Jim, but not as he knows it.

“The odd thing about Star Trek is you can reveal too much by not revealing anything at all,” he notes. “It’s nuts because the Star Trek fans pick everything apart that you say, like you’re revealing something super-top-secret. I partially can’t wait for this movie to come out so that they can just see it.

What he can discuss a little is his take on playing Chekov, the role made famous by original Trek actor Walter Koenig. “I wasn’t a Trekkie at all,” he explains. “But I watched a ton of the old show and got what I wanted to get from Walter Koenig.”

“It’s different because it’s not like I’m creating this role. This role was already there and so you’re interpreting it. I wanted to bring something of mine to it and also wanted to take a lot from him, so the fans wouldn’t be like, ‘Where’s the Chekov that we’ve known for 30 years?’ He’s there but there’s also part of me in there too.”
