The Definitive Movies of 1995

8 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 1990′s introduced the world to Quentin Tarantino, saw the creation of the Nc-17 rating, and began the slow call toward fully computer animated films. It began the slow (still slow) movement toward a more diverse industry, with the first African-American director earning an Oscar nomination (John Singleton for “Boyz in the Hood”). And the year after one of the greatest years in the history of film, 1995 came plodding along, trying to keep up. So, for the first definitive list of 2015, we are going to look back 20 years at a year that, at first glance, doesn’t look so hot. It’s ripe with flops, but it’s also full of debuts, trailblazing beginnings, and better films than it gets credit for. But, the caveat still stands: this is not a “best of” list. In fact, there are a lot of bad movies on this list. But, they are movies that made a cultural impact, »

13 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Emma Watson, best known as Harry Potter’s bookish best friend Hermione Granger, announced that she will be Disney’s next princess – Belle! The Brown University graduate will be bringing her enviable combination of brains and beauty to Bill Condon’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been an announcement about who will play the Beast to Emma’s “Beauty.”

Who will be the Beast? We went through all the working heartthrobs of Hollywood, and picked our top candidates for the role.

Chris Pine

Can he sing? Yes. Chris starred in the adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods. Age: 34 (10 years older than Emma) Known For: Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit We asked you on Facebook and Twitter who you’d like to be Disney’s next prince. Chris Pine was the popular choice. Two other Chrises – Hemsworth and Evans – were very close behind in the votes. »

Watch: Action & Panache Collide In The 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Super Bowl Spot, Plus New Clip & Featurette

13 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So one 2015 spy comedy has already failed: “Mortdecai” with Johnny Depp, which flopped hard last weekend (here's our review). Now another one also arrives just but a few weeks later, but apparently has good buzz. Yep, despite being pushed from last fall to February of this year — not the best augur — “Kingsman: The Secret Service” has received great reviews (including our own). So it’s a witty, 007-type thing, but apparently it’s also entertaining, has kick-ass action, and doesn’t feature the lame duck humor that sunk “Mortdecai.” Here’s the official synopsis: Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Ranking January 2015’s Movies From Worst To Best

21 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Aside from awards fare expanding from limited to wide release, January is always referred to by critics and film buffs as the “graveyard month” for cinema. It’s when studios dump all their waste, the pictures they know suck and will just quietly disappear amid the Oscar conversation to be never spoken of again.

That said, this year has been as good as any other for proving that it’s also a great time for studios to counter-program against all this awfulness, by releasing great movies with very little direct competition to speak of. When you’re up against lame action sequels and Johnny Depp movies even his loyal fanbase can’t stomach, smart and diverting fare actually has a half-way decent chance of winning an audience.

This list focuses largely on movies out on wide release in both the Us and the UK, with a few exceptions »

Mortdecai Review

Johnny Depp as an updated Baron Munchausen.Even in the middle of watching this hugely entertaining Johnny Depp slapstick-a-thon the viewer finds him/herself wondering if the great actor’s best days are behind him. The edginess is mostly gone and in its place are double the cleverness and four times the action, production and special effects. Where has Johnny gone?Reuniting with director David Koepp for the first time since his 2004 adaption of Stephen King’s “Secret Window,” there is no question Depp is thoroughly enjoying himself.

Mortdecai Movie Review

29 January 2015 4:36 PM, PST | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Mortdecai Movie Review

Mortdecai is ultimately a film held down by not knowing what it’s after. That means the film is planted firmly in the realm of being a theoretical failure, and you don’t overcome that easily. It’s either too silly,or not silly enough, and it seems a shame, because you’ve got a lot of talent here, and you have to guess that the novel (by Kyril Bonfiglioli) is brilliant.

Johnny Depp stars as Mortdecai, a difficult character to describe, largely because of the confusing aim. He’s got pieces of Clouseau in him, but he’s on the wrong side of the law, and his comedy draws far too much from his cleverness. He drops references in unusual circumstances that belie his education and upbringing, but he has a definite streak of foppishness to him as well, and at times he seems to be just plain idiotic. »

Foreign Artisans, Actors Scramble for Immigration Papers Before Pilot Season

29 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TV pilot season ramps up this month, luring artisans and actors from around the world to Los Angeles, where they hope to find work on one of the new network series and, if all goes well, score a recurring gig.

But if they’re not United States citizens, they’ll need to deal with immigration law, which can be a frustration worthy of its own TV series for those who aren’t adequately prepared.

Talent both above and below the line face a myriad of confusing regulations and procedures that inhibit their chances of working legally in the L.A. film and television factory.

British writer-director Emma Holly Jones, now in pre-production on her first feature, “Everything Carries Me to You,” advises being organized — a strategy that served her well in obtaining a work visa in 2010, and a renewal in 2013. “I write lists every day,” she says. “The immigration service »

Johnny Depp Misses Press Conference Because ... He Was Attacked by a Chupacabra?

28 January 2015 3:35 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Johnny Depp getting mauled by a chupacabra? Sounds like a Tim Burton movie gone wrong. But the actor really did blame his absence from a news conference in Tokyo on the mythological Latin American beast. Depp is in Japan to promote Mortdecai, an action-packed farce also starring Gwyneth Paltrow. "I was attacked yesterday morning by a very rarely seen or experienced animal called 'chupacabra.' I fought with it for hours," Depp, 51, joked to reporters Wednesday, according to the Associated Press. "They're very persistent, very mean. And I'm pretty sure it came into my suitcase.

Paul Bettany Will Return as Vision in More Marvel Films

28 January 2015 2:31 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Paul Bettany is an actor I really like, but his choices in roles have been a bit of a mixed bag. The actor has up until now lent his voice to the helpful A.I. Jarvis in the Marvel cineverse, and he'll become the Vision (a helpful android) in Avengers: Age of Ultron. In a recent interview, Bettany spoke about how his new role will help with his career choices, the research he put into playing the character, and more.

He told News Australia:

“That’s the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me. I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it. »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »
