Not real recent news, but apparently Peter Cushing will be seen in the upcoming movie 'Rogue One'.
Peter Cushing digitally back in Rouge Onehttp://uproxx.com/gammasquad/2015/08/star-wars-rogue-one-peter-cushing-grand-moff-tarkin/
No one can replace Peter Cushing as Grand Moff Tarkin(in live action I mean), but since the actor passed away back in 1994..it seems Rogue One may bring him back, digitally, this is nothing new.
Film Critique: House of UsherIn my critique of the 1961 film The Pit and the Pendulum, I acknowledged that adapting a short story into a feature-length film is a tricky process. When the source material is so short that it can be read in a single sitting, it is usually (though not always) necessary to elaborate or add to the existing plot, or in some cases to tell a completely different story with similar themes. The Pit and the Pendulum definitely falls into this latter category, whereas House of Usher, a film released a year earlier, actually shares much more in common with the source material, Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher,” the story that is often considered his best and thus prime fodder for adaptation. House of Usher was the first movie in a series of film adaptations of Poe’s works (The Pit and the Pendulum was the second), directed by Roger Corman, written by Richard Matheson, and starring Vincent Price in the role of Roderick Usher. Though not a strict word-for-
Film Critique: The Pit and the PendulumThere comes a point when one is examining a film adaptation of a preexisting work when the viewer must ask himself: what is the most important element for an adaptation to capture? Should the movie be as close as possible to the source material? Or are deviations and creative liberties allowable provided that the tone of the film reflects that of the original story? This question is central to the examination of the 1961 film adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Pit and the Pendulum.” Produced and directed by Roger Corman, written by Richard Matheson, and starring Vincent Price (the latter two both well-known and respected people in the horror genre), this movie has little to nothing to do with Poe’s original short story about a man suffering through the tortures of the Spanish Inquisition. So if a “good” adaptation is judged on its similarities to the source material, this film will fall flat. However, I do not think it is wise to base an opinion of
Great Mouse Detective: Vincent Price as a EVIL RATPeople...I LOVE DISNEY! Alot of my fave films , villains,songs and TV Shows come from the Mouse .Now Disney is basically a household name .However that doesnt mean there arent some Disney films that are loooked over.Now Im glad to know this film is growing in popularity but I still think this film deserves a bit more love .Im of course talking about The Great Mouse Detective (Also known the Adventures of the Great Mouse Detective and Basil the Great Mouse Detective)
The plot is kind of simple .A mouse named Dr Dawson meets a crying little girl named Olivia whose father , a gifted toy maker named Flaversham (Played by Scrooge McDuck ....Im not kidding either hes played by the same guy who played Scrooge McDuck) was kidnapped by a one legged bat named Fidget (Or as I called him as a kid ,Nightmare Fuel).Together Olivia and Dawson meet the eccentric Basil of Baker Street , the rodent equivalent of Sherlock Holmes, in fact he lives in S
