American Sniper—Movie Review

6 hours ago | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

American Sniper may come from a Hollywood studio, but it is absolutely uncompromising, and certainly one of the year’s finest films. Bradley Cooper vanishes into the character of Chris Kyle, a real-life Texan who served four terms of duty in Iraq. A lifelong hunter and a sincere patriot, he became a champion marksman in the Army—and a celebrated hero—but his dedication to duty exacted a heavy toll on his psyche as well as his marriage. Working from a screenplay by Jason Hall (who adapted Kyle’s book about his experiences), director Clint Eastwood makes us feel as if we’re right in the midst of the action in Iraq. The result is chilling and truly frightening. Eastwood even...

American Sniper Review

6 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In my review for Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys from earlier this year, I noted that the director didn’t really seem to be interested in doing anything worthwhile for his pictures, and it seemed like he was directing more as a way to keep busy rather than convey any artistic vision.  But Jersey Boys looks like it’s bursting with imagination compared to the hollow, thoughtless American Sniper. The real story of U.S. Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle doesn’t question the moral cost of what it means to kill well over one hundred people one-by-one.  It’s not even that the movie lacks nuance as much as it lacks just about everything short of star Bradley Cooper giving it his all for a soldier he deeply admired.   Eastwood doesn’t share even an ounce of that passion as he turns in a movie that couldn’t even »

Review: American Sniper Aims At The Bullseye, Misses Entirely

8 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Director Clint Eastwood aims for stoic, heroic grandeur in American Sniper, an adaptation of a bestselling book about Chris Kyle, subtitled "The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History." Eastwood's film, however, misses the target entirely for those who do not worship at the altar of blind, nationalistic sacrifice. In Jason Hall's screenplay, young Kyle's personality is plainly defined by his father as a sheepdog, a protector of meek, sheep-like characters such as his younger brother from predatory wolves, otherwise known as bullies. For reasons that are not explained or even hinted at in the film, Kyle (Bradley Cooper) sublimates his natural tendencies throughout his teens and twenties, giving priority to rodeo, drinking beer, and whupping men who sleep with his girlfriend....

‘Into the Woods,’ Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ and ‘Selma’ Lead Christmas Parade at Box Office

8 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Interview” may be the most talked-about movie heading into Christmas Day, but the star-laden Disney musical “Into the Woods,” the Angelina Jolie–directed “Unbroken” and Oscar frontrunner “Selma” lead a holiday parade of eight new movies that could wrest the spotlight this weekend.

With the exception of the blockbuster Peter Jackson epic “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the holiday box office has been sluggish. But the high-profile releases could turn that around starting Thursday.

The Mark Wahlberg crime drama “The Gambler” is also opening nationwide, while the Clint Eastwood–directed “American Sniper,” Tim Burton’s “Big Eyes »

‘American Sniper’ Hits Theaters Christmas Day – See The Making Of Clint Eastwood’s Powerful True Story (Video)

9 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: When Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper premiered at the AFI Fest last month, I wrote that I felt it was his finest film in the decade since his 2004 Million Dollar Baby earned him Best Picture and Best Director Oscars for the second time  (after 1992’s Unforgiven did the same trick). I stand by that now, as the film is about to finally open on Christmas Day. In fact, on my list of the year’s Top 10 films (which will be revealed Monday) it has a prominent place. And I’m not alone. Bradley Cooper who stars as Chris Kyle, the most lethal and successful sniper in American military history, is drumming up lots of support for a possible third acting nomination in a row.

As Deadline reported  Ben Affleck and other actors including Robert DeNiro recently came out strongly for his performance, and just this Sunday two-time Oscar winner »

Christmas Box Office: ‘Interview’ Interesting Wrinkle, But Won’t Make Waves

13 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

With the last-minute brouhaha over The Interview’s play in an estimated 300+ indie engagements,  it would seem that the Christmas Day box office is all about the Sony political comedy and nothing less. While rival studios expressed alarm last week about The Interview’s presence in the market, they’re rather apathetic about its return. Will The Interview cut into other major titles’ showtimes in major markets such as Los Angeles, New York and Dallas? “No, not really. First, people have to figure out that it’s out there,” says one studio chief, while another observed, “The Interview is playing a bunch of little art house and sub-run theaters. If they were in the circuit first run houses it would be a different story.”

Since The Interview fell off tracking, there’s no barometer for insiders to project what it could actually rake up over four-days. And the film’s »

Weekend Movies and TV: 'Into the Woods,' 'Black Mirror,' & More (Video)

19 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This weekend, Meryl Streep and an All-Star cast reimagine classic fairy tales in the musical "Into the Woods," and the acclaimed BBC series "Black Mirror" gets a holiday twist featuring Jon Hamm in "Black Mirror: White Christmas" on DirecTV at 9:30 p.m. Christmas night.

Also in theaters this weekend: Directed by Angelina Jolie, "Unbroken" tells the amazing true story of Olympian and WWII pilot Louis Zamperini who survives weeks on a raft before his capture by the Japanese navy. Directed by Clint Eastwood, "American Sniper" follows Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) whose pinpoint accuracy over four tours of duty has made him a legend. Life at home with his wife (Sienna Miller) and kids, however, no longer comes as naturally. "The Gambler" stars Mark Wahlberg as a Lit professor and gambler whose debt forces him to borrow money from a loan shark and risk it all for a second chance. »

‘American Sniper’ stumbles, but Bradley Cooper shines

23 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

American Sniper

Written for the screen by Jason Hall

Directed by Clint Eastwood

USA, 2014

After unsuccessful forays into musicals and political biopics with Jersey Boys and J. Edgar, Clint Eastwood returns to more traditionally masculine material usually associated with his filmmaker persona. With American Sniper, he tackles the drama and real-life accounts of Navy Seal sniper Chris Kyle, but as compelling as the on-the-ground combat is, the real story worth telling is largely ignored for the pyrotechnics.

The film begins with an unnecessary  exploration of Kyle’s childhood as his father lays out all of humanity into three simple categories: wolves, sheep and sheepdogs. It’s a message young Chris takes to heart as he grows up into a man who sees little else but black and white. After witnessing the events of 9/11 he signs up for the Navy SEALs. Bradley Cooper bulks up considerably to play Chris Kyle, packing »

American Sniper Is a War-on-Terror Fantasy

23 December 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

In Clint Eastwood's American Sniper, Navy Seal Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) — an astoundingly talented marksman credited with over 160 confirmed kills in Iraq — runs into a fellow veteran at a mechanic's shop between deployments. The soldier shows Kyle an artificial leg and thanks him for saving his life. Cooper, all thick with new muscles, smiles tight and false. He's just trying to get his oil changed, man.

The real-life Kyle was murdered two years ago by another fellow veteran, Eddie Routh, a scrawny, 25-year-old Marine with Ptsd. As Cooper plays him, Kyle wears his heroism like a heavy saddle — he's spurred to do more, fight more, kill more because he feels the weight of all the American soldiers he must save. Cooper and Eastwood's Kyle is a hum »

Why Hollywood Isn’t Freaking Over Bummer 2014 Box Office

23 December 2014 5:56 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With the holiday season soft, it’s clear the 2014 domestic box office is going to wind up down from last year by nearly 5 percent. So why aren’t we hearing more groans and gnashing of teeth from Hollywood executives?

It’s because despite the downturn, the majority of the studios made money on their movies. Fox, Disney, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros. and Sony should all — to varying degrees — wind up in the black on their film slates.

The fact that 2015 has a shot to be the biggest on record is brightening Hollywood’s mood, too. Among the heavyweight films set »

TheWrap’s Film Critics Pick 10 Worst Movies of 2014

23 December 2014 5:29 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

For every year that is packed with awards season fodder and memorable movies that will go down in history, there is an equal number of films we wish we could erase from our memories.

The Worst of 2014 includes both people who should know better and repeat offenders, artists with a vision and hucksters out for a quick buck.

Here’s hoping the responsible parties resolve to do better in 2015.

Christmas Box Office: ‘The Interview’ Eyes Strong Ticket Sales in Limited Release

23 December 2014 5:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Christmas box office for Sony’s “The Interview” will offer a case study on whether all publicity is actually good publicity.

Peter Jackson’s “Hobbit” finale and Disney’s “Into the Woods” should battle for the top slot for the holiday weekend in the U.S. But the key question for many will be how the James Franco-Seth Rogen comedy delivers in limited release at several hundred independent theaters.

Sony could possibly see four-day grosses of about $3 million for “The Interview.” The studio is probably going to be handicapped by the theaters in which it’s playing, which lack the capacity of the major chains, and by having told the world on Dec. 17 that it wasn’t going to release the comedy at all.

Still, early reports indicate strong ticket sales for the theaters releasing the film, which is coming into the market with a consumer awareness unmatched in recent history. »

Clint Eastwood Is Officially Single as Divorce From Second Wife Dina Eastwood Is Finalized

23 December 2014 3:00 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Clint Eastwood is officially riding solo once again. The 84-year-old actor-filmmaker's divorce from Dina Eastwood, his second wife, has been finalized, according to court documents filed in Monterey, Calif., and obtained by E! News. Per the filing, a judge signed off on the split yesterday. Dina and Clint are parents to 18-year-old daughter Morgan together and, since she's no longer a minor, custody was not a legal issue. Details of their financial arrangement are being kept confidential.  By the time it was revealed in August 2013 that they had separated after 17 years of marriage, Clint and Dina had already been living apart for some time, according to a source. Dina then filed for a »

The Longest Ride Trailer: Can You Guess Who’s Related to Hollywood Royalty?

23 December 2014 2:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If you're a Nicholas Sparks fan, The Longest Ride probably has you at "cowboy romance," and if it doesn't have you at "cowboy romance," it definitely has you at "cowboy romance with World War II flashbacks." If you're trying to keep from crying, distract yourself with this: Nearly every actor in this movie is related to another famous person. We've got Scott Eastwood (son of Clint) as the cowboy, Jack Huston (nephew of Anjelica) as a WWII soldier, and Oona Chaplin (granddaughter of Charlie) as his wife. Remember when people got really angry at Orange County for this same reason? The world has changed a lot since 2002 — except in Nicholas Sparks movies, where it's always 1957. »

'Unbroken': Breaking Down Oscar Odds for Angelina Jolie's World War II Drama

23 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

With a team that's won a total of six Oscars and been nominated for over 35 more, on paper, at least, "Unbroken" seems like as close to a sure thing as it gets this awards season.

It has a high-profile director, a script by the Coen brothers, and an up-and-coming young actor delivering another in a string of acclaimed performances. Not to mention it's adapted from a best-selling account of the incredible true story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympian-turned-war hero who survived a plane crash and 47 days lost at sea during World War II, only to spend another two-and-a-half years in a Japanese Pow camp.

But somehow, despite all of that, Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" ends up less than the sum of its promising parts. So to figure out what went wrong, we've taken a look at the World War II drama's latest Oscar odds to determine where "Unbroken" ultimately broke down. »
