Film

UM hooligan on the big screen

OXFORD TOWN – Tate Ellington may be best known in Oxford as a hooligan even if the rest of the world considers him a respectable actor. While in college at Ole Miss, he was part of the comedy troupe, “The Hooligans” but has since gone on to be in numerous film, TV and theater performances. Now living in New York, Ellington recently starred as Aidan in the dramatic “Remember Me” alongside Robert Pattinson of “Twilight” fame. Ellington recently answered a few questions for the Oxford TOWN about his college experiences, working on “Remember Me” and where to see him next. (April 8, 2010, Page 7)

    Breaking news, breaking down to screen Monday

    OXFORD TOWN – For the people who tell the stories of other’s tragedies for the world to understand, we often forget that their own experiences of those events are as telling, if not more. While a journalist is trained to remain detached and record the events, in the midst of catastrophe, there are sights and experiences that alter you.
    “Breaking News, Breaking Down,” is a 36-minute documentary that looks at the journalists behind the words and cameras during Hurricane Katrina and September 11. The film will play in Oxford on Monday, April 12 at 4 p.m. in the Overby Auditorium, next to Farley Hall on the Ole Miss campus.

      Hot Tub Time Machine takes us back

      OXFORD TOWN – There is something to be said for a film that knows not to take itself or its story too seriously. “Hot Tub Time Machine” is one of those films and takes us back in time with fun 80s movie clichés blended with a time travel story. Thanks to the homage to 80s films, it is hard not to go back to the theater at least twice with friends to see this film, maybe break into song, and to try and catch what you may have missed the first time. (March 25, 2010, Page 15)

        Indie film to shoot in Oxford

        OXFORD TOWN — An independent film will be shot in Oxford this May with casting for several speaking roles to be held on March 27. The film 25K follows the misadventures of two bail enforcement agents who make a series of bad decisions with violent consequences.
        For filmmaker Chase Goforth, his two passions grew hand in hand. While his career is that of a magician, doing work at corporate events, conferences and some theater work, another type of magic always fascinated him: movie-making.
