Cameraman: The Life & Work of Jack Cardiff

From ballerinas to barbarians, the Oscar winner shot them all.


Documentary

Rod Lott
When he died two years ago at the age of 94, celebrated cinematographer Jack Cardiff was responsible for shooting 73 films — many of them Hollywood classics, some not — from “The African Queen” to “Conan the Destroyer.”

The Beaver

You’ve got to hand it to Gibson.


Drama

Rod Lott
While not the disaster you may have been led to believe, neither is “The Beaver” a success. It sits somewhere in the middle, unsure of itself as to which style of story to commit. Ultimately, where it ends up is in the field of “noble curiosity,” based in no small part on the spectacularly public, ill-timed flameout of its star.

Sure thing

Edmondites behind the indie thriler ‘iCrime.’

Edmond-based Sure Crossing Films is behind the Internet-fueled thriller “iCrime,” which hits DVD and VOD on Sept. 27.

Sure Crossing principals Richard Ford and Scott Bridges produced the flick, set in the world of vlogs. Here’s the official synopsis: “’iCrime’ begins with the live kidnapping of a popular Internet celebrity and follows an Oklahoma girl obsessed with exposing it as a hoax, catapulting her to her own online celebrity in the process.”

Plus, the page for the film’s YouTube trailer mentions the phrase “sex tape.” Now you’re interested, right? —Rod Lott

Man from Atlantis: The Complete TV Movies Collection / The Complete Television Series

Before ‘Dallas,’ Patrick Duffy made a splash as a waterlogged wonder.


Television series

Rod Lott
Being all of 6 years old during its brief run on the tube, I have only vague memories of “Man from Atlantis,” Patrick Duffy’s pre-“Dallas” TV series that has become a sci-fi cult hit ever since.

Play ball (again and again)!

Does not include ‘Jim Traber Gets Mad and Chases Guy.’

As someone who watches no more ESPN than the annual hot dog eating contest on the Fourth of July, I’m not a fan of baseball — that’s the one with the bat, right? — but I bring this item to the attention of the many who are.

Next month, Major League Baseball and A&E Home Entertainment partner to knock some classic games out of the park and onto DVD with the “Baseball’s Greatest Games” collection. For the line, rare TV broadcasts of historic games can be relived, inning by inning, pitch by pitch.

The first 10 titles can be scored starting Sept. 6, at $12.95 each. That’s cheaper than a small beer at the stadium, right? And they are:
• “1960 World Series, Game 7: Pittsburgh Pirates vs. New York Yankees”
• “1975 World Series, Game 6: Boston Red Sox vs. Cincinnati Reds”
• “1979 Wrigley Field Slugfest: Philadelphia Phillies vs. Chicago Cubs”
• “1985 NLCS, Game 5: St. Louis Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Dodgers”
• “1986 World Series, Game 6: New York Mets vs. Boston Red Sox”
• “1991 World Series, Game 7: Minnesota Twins vs. Atlanta Braves”
• “1992 NLCS, Game 7: Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves”
• “1993 World Series, Game 6: Toronto Blue Jays vs. Philadelphia Phillies”
• “2003 ALCS, Game 7: Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees”
• “2004 ALCS, Game 4: Boston Red Sox vs. New York Yankees”

Your favorite game not in the lineup? Don’t cry foul — there are more to come, including September’s release of “Baseball’s Greatest Games: Derek Jeter’s 3000th Hit.” —Rod Lott

The ****ing dead

Night of the ‘I’ll watch something else.’

I’m always in the mood for a good zombie movie. I’m not sure that “L.A. Zombie,” hitting DVD Sept. 20, counts. My reasons:

1. It’s 62 minutes long and contains the warning “explicit sexual content.” You know what that means. (Cue the waka-waka music.)
2. Its tagline is “First he eats your brains... then your a**!”
3. Fangoria raves, “thoughtful.” <em>—Rod Lott</em>

Beautiful Darling

This Candy sours


Documentary

Rod Lott
Candy Darling would’ve loved “Beautiful Darling,” the documentary of her brief 29 years alive, because, as one of the persons interviewed reveals, the thing that mattered most to her in life was being considered gorgeous enough to grace the silver screen.

World on a Wire

The little-seen 'World on a Wire' was remade as 1999’s bomb 'The Thirteenth Floor,' starring Gretchen Mol, but don’t hold that against it.
