'Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief' (2015) Movie Review

26 March 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It always seems documentary filmmakers have a hard time walking the line between commentator and story teller. Separating themselves from the subject and allowing the nature of the story they are telling to tell itself rather than manipulating it for their own means. This is a problem I've always had with Michael Moore's documentaries as he seems only interested in preaching to the choir rather than exploring both sides of the debate. When it comes to Alex Gibney's Scientology documentary, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, I genuinely feel he has done his absolute best to stand back and observe rather than inject himself or his opinions. He details an organization that, rather than respond to accusations, chooses to attack when confronted, and this has been going on even before the film's premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2015 and continues to this very day. »

Recap: 'American Idol' Season 14 - Top 9 '80s Night and Double-Elimination

25 March 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're only two weeks into this season's "American Idol" Finals and The Save is gone.  The "Idol" judges opted to Save Qaasim Middleton last week. Were they protecting the entertainment factor that Qaasim brings to the show? Were they rewarding Qaasim for bringing energy to an episode that had lacked energy? Were they recognizing that America's voting has, thus far, been wonky as heck this season? Either way, Wednesday's (March 25) episode of "American Idol" is going to be a double-elimination episode, meaning that there are 11 remaining contestants, but presumably only nine are going to sing. This will change the entire architecture of the episode. Plus, Fox is boasting an appearance by Salt and/or Peppa, following last week's big Kenny Loggins appearance. Whee! 8:01 p.m. I think Nick Fradiani should have been the '80s Night mentor, since I'm pretty sure he's the only contestant this season who existed way back then. »

Timeless style by Anne-Katrin Titze

Noah Baumbach says Academy Award Best Costume Design winner Ann Roth "has a way of dressing people - that you can't put your finger on." Roth won for Anthony Minghella's The English Patient, starring Ralph Fiennes, Juliette Binoche, Willem Dafoe and Kristin Scott Thomas and is a BAFTA honoree for John Schlesinger's The Day Of The Locust, which starred Donald Sutherland, Karen Black and Burgess Meredith. Roth also received Oscar nominations for her work on Robert Benton's Places In The Heart and again with Minghella for The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Noah's 2012 film, Frances Ha, with Greta Gerwig, Mickey Sumner and Adam Driver, had no costume designer credit, although Sumner's godmother is famed costume designer Colleen Atwood. »

9 franchise-starting young adult films that struggled

25 March 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

For every Harry Potter or Hunger Games series, there are those franchises that didn't quite set the world on fire...

Since Insurgent came out, I’ve been thinking about those less fortunate: the franchise wannabes. While Divergent may have succeeded financially, (a film that rode on the coat-tails of the even more lucrative The Hunger Games franchise) there are others who didn’t quite make it into the movie world’s big leagues. These are the franchise-starters that flopped, the films produced with the optimistic hope that they will bring in the readies and kick-start Hollywood’s latest franchise. Worse luck for them, really.

For the sake of simplicity, this list will zero in on Ya franchise-starters, films adapted from a young adult novel or with that audience in mind. There are plenty of more mature films that struggled such as Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time, The A-Team »

‘Paddington’ Review

22 March 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman, Ben Whishaw, Imelda Staunton, Michael Gambon, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Matt Lucas | Written and Directed by Paul King

When characters from children’s television shows are translated onto the silver screen sometimes the results aren’t exactly positive.  Paddington is one of the movies where I would admit I was cynical and didn’t expect much, especially because of the age of the actual show.  Then a little magical viral madness took over and the spectacle of the “Scary Paddington” took over and it was perfect to get the bear noticed, showing how awesome the internet can be.  The fact is even without the crazy internet people, Paddington turned into something surprising and very charming.

Paddington Blu-ray Review

Director: Paul King

Starring: Sally HawkinsHugh BonnevilleJulie WaltersMadeleine HarrisSamuel Joslin, with Nicole Kidman and Ben Whishaw.

Run Time: 91 minutes

Extras: Meet the Characters, When a Bear Comes to Stay, From Page to Screen, Gallery

When I first heard the rumours of the Paddington adaptation for the big screen, I wasn’t in opposition to the idea but wasn’t convinced they’d do Michael Bond’s wonderful books and Peggy Fortnum’s illustrations justice. Paddington Bear is an adored element of British upbringing and sometimes films can lose that purity and appeal when they’re out there for the whole world to see. Thankfully, with Harry Potter producer David Heyman behind the work alongside director Paul King, they’ve creatively concocted a quite fantastic family film that brings all the spirit alive.

Robert SimondsStx Entertainment is close to securing a three-year deal to produce 18 films with China’s Huayi Brothers Media, Variety has learned.

Huayi revealed a partnership with an unnamed U.S. entity on Monday, as part of a regulatory filing in China. The U.S. company was not named.

However, sources tell Variety that Stx is the Hollywood company that has landed the lucrative pact.

Steve Elzer, a spokesman for Stx, said that the company does not comment on rumors.

Stx launched last March and was created by longtime producer Simonds with the goal of fielding eight to 10 movies a year, with budgets ranging from $20 million to $80 million.

‘Empire’ Dream Cast: 12 Actors We Want to Reunite with Lee Daniels on Season 2

11 March 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

When it comes to appearing on Empire, there seems to be one common thread: Lee Daniels. The director, who helped creator Fox’s hit new series with writer/actor Danny Strong, comes from a critically acclaimed film background. Both Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon) and Gabourey Sidibe (Becky Williams) earned Oscar recognition thanks to Daniels work behind the camera.

Daniels has worked with an impressive pool of actors, which includes everyone from Dame Helen Mirren to SeanP. Diddy” Combs. While we’d never expect to see Mirren on the show -- though it would be delightful if she made a voice cameo like she did on Glee -- we do love the idea of Combs getting back into acting, Nicole Kidman returning to her camp days, or even Zac Efron revisiting the musical world that first made him a star.

French Actor Lambert Wilson Set to Emcee Cannes Film Festival

11 March 2015 11:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Following his colorful and eloquent performance at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, French actor Lambert Wilson (“Of Gods and Men”) has been tapped again as master of ceremonies for the 68th edition of the festival.

As previously announced, the competition jury will be headed by Joel and Ethan Coen, while Abderrahmane Sissako will serve as president of the short film and Cinefondation jury.

“At the end of the awards ceremony in which ‘Winter Sleep’ by Nuri Bilge Ceylan garnered the prize, the actor concluded with the following words: ‘The world is written in an incomprehensible language, but cinema helps us translate it universally. Without its guiding light, everyone would be stuck in the dark of the night,'” recalled the festival in its official announcement.

Wilson delivered a memorable performance on opening night, when he took Nicole Kidman, the star of “Grace of Monaco,” by surprise for an improvised dance. »
