Examining the Most Dazzling Strengths of Lady Gaga's New Album, Joanne

21 October 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Dimitrios Kambouris Nearly three years after the release of Artpop, Lady Gaga is back and draped in pastels. On Friday, the pop star's new album Joanne dropped, with a diverse range sprawling from the amped-up rock of "Perfect Illusion" to "Million Reasons," her soulful tearjerker. Now that the rest of the songs have been released, we have a more complete picture of the dreamy country twang Joanne has to offer. It's hard to say if it's Lady Gaga's best album to date - each one is so vastly different from the last - but it sure strikes a powerful chord from the first note to the last. "I might not be flawless, but you know I've got a diamond heart." Joanne opens in earnest with "Diamond Heart," which proceeds with a sleepy build to the chorus. "I might not be flawless, but you know I've got a diamond heart, »

Your Guide to Joanne: A New Lady Gaga Song for Every Possible Mood

21 October 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | | See recent news »


The new era of Lady Gaga is officially here. The singer’s chameleon-like persona is so dynamic that it’s hard to imagine there’s a side of her we haven’t met. However, if we’ve learned anything from Mother Monster, it’s to expect the unexpected, which is why her new album, Joanne, is the perfect, stripped-back next step in her artistic evolution.

Pulsing with raw energy and laced with vulnerability, the 11-track LP conveys the sincerity we’ve come to expect from Gaga, who made our jaws drop with »

Joshua Reviews Juzo Itami’s Tampopo [Theatrical Review]

21 October 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Over the last handful of years, repertory cinema has found a new life. With an increasing number of distributors not only restoring classic, foreign and ostensibly forgotten masterpieces, but also giving them great runs in theaters across the country, even smaller markets outside of New York and La are getting a chance to see what’s truly going on in the world of film restoration. But there are still few names as influential and important as that of Janus Films. A label synonymous with the very best in truly important cinema, Janus Films has seen new runs of films as iconic as The Dekalog, to as niche as John WatersMultiple Maniacs this year. And they aren’t done just yet.

October 21 sees the New York premiere of a new, gorgeous, 4K restoration of Juzo Itami’s masterpiece Tampopo. Long rumored to become part of the DVD and Blu-ray catolog of Janus’ home video arm, »

Vancouver 2016 Review: Maliglutit, A Spiritual Remake of John Ford's Western Classic The Searchers

16 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Maliglutit, the latest film by Zacharias Kunuk (The Fast Runner), is essentially a spiritual remake of John Ford's seminal Western classic, The Searchers. This time, the action is set entirely in Nunavut, Canada's most sparsely populated territory and home to what is perhaps North America's least-understood indigenous group, the Inuit people. The film takes place on an expansive -- at times seemingly limitless -- tundra, dotted every few kilometers with igloos and dogsleds. The time- period of the film is unclear, though the characters brandish what appear to be early-to-mid-century firearms, confirming that it must take place post-contact. Still, Kunuk does not opt to mirror John Wayne's savage Indian foes with white ones in his movie. The violence and kidnapping in Maliglutit is instead perpetrated...

Review: "The Conqueror" (1956) Starring John Wayne And Susan Hayward; Universal Vault DVD Release

15 October 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Doug Oswald

Released as a burn-to-order DVD from the Universal Vault Series, some may be quick to add that they should have kept “The Conqueror” in the vault. The movie is notorious for being one of the worst movies in Hollywood history. Much has been written about how terrible this movie is so I’m going to avoid jumping on that bandwagon. After all, calling this movie bad is like calling out water for being wet.

The movie is also a part of a conspiracy theory of sorts because many of the cast and crew died from cancer and some have connected those cancer deaths to the location filming in St. George Utah which was the stand-in for the Gobi Desert. St. George is downwind from where the above ground nuclear testing occurred in Nevada. Indeed, many involved with this movie did succumb to cancer including lifetime smoker John Wayne »

Here's the Skinny on Lady Gaga's Fifth Studio Album, Joanne

4 October 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been nearly three years since the release of Lady Gaga's last solo album, Artpop. To say that we're hungry for new music from the pop star would be a tragic understatement. And up until last month, things had been pretty quiet; Gaga hadn't really said anything about her album since she spoke about it at the Golden Globes. Then, suddenly, it was August, and she had announced her new single, "Perfect Illusion." Before we knew it, the single had dropped, and Lady Gaga followed up the release with a whole slew of new information about her fifth studio album. Don't worry, we've packaged all the information up for you, with a neat little bow. The album is called Joanne, and it has a special meaning. The title comes from Lady Gaga's late Aunt Joanne, who passed away at a young age. Gaga said the album is "all »

New York Film Review: ‘I Am Not Your Negro’

3 October 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Raoul Peck’s “I Am Not Your Negro” is the rare movie that might be called a spiritual documentary. It’s a meditation on the prophetic brilliance and the very being of James Baldwin, the African-American writer who was more than a “great thinker” on race — he was the prose-poet of our injustice and inhumanity (and our humanity, too). He saw more than anyone, and he wrote it all down, in essays and novels and plays and poems that were so far ahead of where his society was at that it may only be now, 40 or 50 years later, when he can truly be heard. The times have caught up with his scalding eloquence.

In the early moments of “I Am Not Your Negro,” there’s an amazing clip of Baldwin on “The Dick Cavett Show.” We think of Cavett as the puckish, enlightened voice of liberal reason, but this clip »

High Noon

Another release of the Kramer-Foreman-Zinnemann classic gives Savant another chance to make his argument that this supposedly 'liberal' movie is too confused to be anything but political quicksand -- if anything, its statement is bitterly hawkish. High Noon Blu-ray Olive Signature 1952 / B&W / 1:37 flat Academy / 85 min. / Street Date September 20, 2016 / available through the Olive Films website / 39.95 Starring Gary Cooper, Thomas Mitchell, Grace Kelly, Katy Jurado, Lloyd Bridges, Lon Chaney Jr, Harry Morgan, Otto Kruger, Lee Van Cleef.

Should We Really Look Forward To More Star Wars Films?

25 September 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway cautions against too many films in the franchise…

The news that Kathleen Kennedy plans a whole universe of Star Wars movies should be greeted with trepidation.

I love Star Wars, but I can’t help but feel more movies will chip away at the mythology of the films.. The prequels already gave us Midi-chlorians and a rather disappointing explanation or what the cool sounding Clone Wars actually were. I’m looking forward to Rogue One, and I hope it lives up to expectations, but some things are better left to our imagination.

At heart, Star Wars – the original trilogy at least, is a Western, a fight between good and evil on the margins of a lawless world, the hero rides in, saves the day and disappears, that in a way, is what happens in A New Hope, with Han Solo standing in for the archetypal hero. »

Randolph Scott fights to let the railroad go through in this old-fashioned rip-snorting action adventure movie, the kind where shooting bad guys means never having to say you're sorry.

The Magnificent Seven – Review

22 September 2016 10:16 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

There’s the saying that they don’t make them like they used to. Often this is referred to classic styles of storytelling. The western is one of the oldest film genres, practically synonymous with names like John Ford, John Wayne, and Clint Eastwood. Over the past decade there have been filmmakers that have saddled the genre and kicked a modern twist into it. Films like Slow West, The The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, and Meek’S Cutoff have reflected more of the struggles – both internal and external – of life on the American frontier.

However, The Magnificent Seven (2016) falls more in line with traditional westerns than the modern; it harkens back to the “us vs. them” dynamic. There’s a classic approach to this remake of the 1960 film that shows Antoine Fuqua understands that sometimes you don’t need to mess around too much with a good thing. »

“Heavenly shades of night are falling…it’s twilight time”, and we’re not talking about sparkly teen vampires. No, those lyrics from the Platters golden oldie could very well be used as the theme for this movie, and perhaps its iconic lead actor. As many “golden age” film stars reach their “golden years”, they often look toward a project that may be the perfect coda to their long career, maybe a farewell to their screen persona. Hey wouldn’t you rather ride into the sunset with The Shootist (as John Wayne did) than headline a flick called Trog ( Joan Crawford’s finale’)?  Perhaps this is the case for fabled film funny man Jerry Lewis. At the tail end of the “golden age” of Hollywood (1948), he and then partner Dean Martin ruled the box office for eight years. After their split, Jerry had even greater success as a solo for a good twelve years, »

Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 2 Review

19 September 2016 9:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At its absolute best, Ash vs. Evil Dead is a blood-drenched, puss-spewing, ball-busting, hair-raising, gleefully maniacal piece of debauchery entertainment, one that liberally provides those who love its corny goofiness with plentiful servings. Though 23 years had passed since Bruce Campbell’s most iconic character, Ash Williams, hit the screen with Army of Darkness, the consistently energetic, massively heartfelt and lovingly deprived horror-comedy show from Starz didn’t miss a beat. What easily could’ve been another soulless ’80s retread quickly became not merely one of the best genre shows of 2015, but one of the year’s finest TV shows, period. Now, Ash is back for more and he’s as entertaining as ever.

Having said that, though it’s not without its similar charm and sincerity, season 2 doesn’t quite compete with the wicked mayhem of season 2. But that’s not to say it’s bad. No, Ash vs. Evil Dead »

From the missing films of favorite auteurs: "The Wings of Eagles" (Ford, 1957)

Turner Classic Movies is a boon for auteurists.  Who need a local movie theater when you can just scan TCM’s monthly schedule for directors you want to catch up on?  (Or, for the more adventurous, directors you’ve never heard of—part of the simultaneous greatness of and frustration with TCM is their seemingly random hodgepodge programming of great films with utter mediocrity.)  I’ve been guilty on many occasions of letting a film by a filmmaker I like pass by—it’s too long, it’s otherwise easy to see, the mood isn’t right, the film sounds like a minor work—and one that I let pass more than any other was John Ford’s 1957 film The Wings of Eagles.Made after The Searchers, given a particularly forgettable title (I keep having to double-check if the film is actually The Eagle’s Wings or On The Wings of Eagles »
