  1986 Black Maria Film + Video Festival Essay
As historians of early cinema have ably demonstrated, film from the beginning was exhibited as part of the general vaudeville and dance hall milieu that characterized the middle class entertainment offerings of the late 19th century.
Film quickly became "theater for the masses" and that it has remained ever since to the majority of those who deal with it.
Generally speaking, the art world, rather than seeking to include film as a genuine sister art to the more established forms, has instead accepted the conventional wisdom that the "movies" are for the "masses" and therefore outside the ken of curators and critics.

 Film History of the 1980s
Howard the Duck (1986), based on Steve Gerber's 70s Marvel Comics character (which went out of print in 1981), and from executive producer George Lucas (and his screenwriting pal, director Willard Huyck), was one of the worst and least successful big-budget films ever made.
Film budgets skyrocketed due to special effects (expensive digital effects) and inflated salaries of name-recognition stars (and their agents).
Because costly film decisions were more in the hands of people making the financial decisions, not the film makers, movies were made only if they could guarantee financial success, thereby pandering to a few select, well-known star names attached to film titles without as much attention paid to intelligent scripts.

 Hoosiers (1986) - Film Talk
We are a community of film colleagues who want to share the films they love, who enjoy talking about film and DVD issues, and who like to make friends among people who have similar interests.
We want DVDAF and film-talk to be the premier film communities for the discussion of film and film issues.
This is one of my favorite sports-themed films, but it wasn't necessarily because of the basketball, but rather the portrayal of a flawed man given another (last) chance and making the most of it by Hackman.

 Little Shop of Horrors (1986 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The film, directed by Frank Oz, is generally faithful to both the original and the stage version of the story, which is based on the classic Faust legend.
The 1986 version of Audrey II was an extremely elaborate creation, using puppets designed by Lyle Conway and The Jim Henson Company.
For the time being, no plans have been made to re-release the film or DVD with the alternate ending, although modern audiences may be better prepared for a darker version of what is essentially a morality play.

Writing an evaluation, whether it be of a film, book, play, sporting event or other endeavor, calls for certain basic requirements to be met by the writer.
While the focus is on films, the criteria mentioned here apply as well to those other items listed in the opening sentence.
From this opening, notice that the film under evaluation, Ethnic Notions, is boldfaced.

The new film will likely be more family friendly, and done on a much larger scale with digital effects.
Remaking the film without the horror elements would be a huge mistake in my opinion.

Professor of comparative literature and film at New York University, Diawara embarked on a film on Nairobi and Prof wa Thiong’o in 2004 as Mwangi Gicheru is reportedly said to be preparing to turn his popular novel, Across the Bridge, into film.
The new wave film movement in France, for instance, shows that Jean-Luc Goddard and Jean Rouche wrote about film before making them.” Diawara says the relationship between literature and film is very close as they are both interested in areas like storytelling.
“Film is an urban activity and you cannot afford not to address city dwellers,” he says, adding that his Urban Heroes series addresses globalisation and new ideas of democratisation in Africa.

I'm not sure how widely known this film is, and will probably drop Thomas Langkau a line to find out if he knows about it.

 The Virginia Film Festival :: Press
The film becomes an introspective (and often hilariously self-deprecating) search for romance, and the Southern belles the hapless McElwee meets along the way become characters in his calamitous love life.
The film is also about filmmaking - home movie, documentary, and fiction filmmaking - as the filmmaker fences with the legacy of an obscure Hollywood melodrama that is purportedly based on his great-grandfather's life.
The Virginia Film Society is a program of the Virginia Film Festival, co-sponsored by the Virginia Foundation of the Humanities, the University of Virginia’s Arts Council, the University Programs Council and Brown College.

 Le Paltoquet / Michel Deville / 1986 / film review
With big name actors and ludicrously sparse sets, the film simultaneously mocks Hollywood’s obsession with stars whilst proving that good actors are apparently all you really need to make a good film.
The way the film’s elements are conceived, choreographed and assembled transforms a third rate apology for a film concept into a compelling piece of cinematic art.
The empty set and the equally empty characterisation give the film a haunting, existentialist feel, implying that we are seeing cannot be reality, but some bizarre fantasy.

 Les Fugitifs / Francis Veber / 1986 / film review
Cheekily, the film follows more or less exactly the same format as the previous two Richard-Depardieu outings, but is none the less enjoyable for that.
The plot is typically a nonsensical affair – presumably intended as a send-up of the 1980s film policier (a genre which few directors took seriously in France at the time) – but that hardly matters.
And the film’s last thirty or so minutes is – literally – the stuff of comic legend.

 A Better Tomorrow (1986)
Every so often in film history, an accomplished director and a talented actor will become friends and team up for a variety of pictures, thrilling moviegoers in film after film.
The plot of this 1986 film centers on the lives of HK gangsters Ho (Ti Lung) and Mark (Chow Yun-Fat), two triads living the highlife due to their involvement in a counterfeiting scheme.
Devoid of much of the overdone "Woo-isms" that populate the director's later films (and have actually become groan-inducing clichés), A Better Tomorrow is a polished, resonant piece of HK filmmaking and an absolute genre essential.

The France-Brazil match, surely the most dramatic game in the history of the World Cup, is fully deserving of the cinematic treatment, especially as the game ends with the dreaded penalty shoot out.
The film is called HERO and that is because it focusses on the great individuals who scale the peaks of world football - Platini, Socrates, Rummenigge, Lineker, Francescoli, Sanchez, to name a few.
The only criticism I may have is that you don't get to see all the matches, but this would spoil the flow of the film.

 'Transformers' Trivia: Film Legend Orson Welles' Last Role Was In 1986 Animated Film - Starpulse Entertainment News Blog
In a classic bit of movie trivia, the little-seen 1986 animated film Transformers: The Movie was Orson Welles' last film.
His last released film was 1987's Someone to Love, but that was shot before Welles lent his voice to ''Transformers.'' Late in his career, Welles often took to commercials and narration work as a source of income.
Though he went on to create a number of masterpieces (among them The Magnificent Ambersons and Othello), he is often viewed as failing to recapture his early brilliance.
