DVD Review: 'Still Alice'

7 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Dr. Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) is a linguist, someone who has made language acquisition her life's work; she has literally written the book on the subject. She lives in New York with her busy doctor husband John (Alec Baldwin), teaches at Columbia, has a brood of adult children and a busy life of conferences and social engagements. So when midway through a presentation she forgets a word – she manages to come out with 'word stock' but the word she was grasping for was 'lexicon' – it is a worrying niggle but nothing more. In fact, Alice is more distracted by her daughter Lydia's determination to become an actor rather than go to college.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2: Katniss and Boggs Prepare for Battle

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

Lionsgate has released a new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 image. The saga concludes with Katniss (Jennifer Lawerence) and a unit from District 13 going on a mission to the Capitol to assassinate President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and end the war that has engulfed Panem. I haven’t read the books in years, so I can’t recall what this still might be from, but at the very least, it’s safe to expect that this could be the most action-packed Hunger Games movie at least as far as the stakes are concerned. There may not be an arena, but I’m curious to see how much director Francis Lawrence shows the war surrounding the covert mission. The resistance scenes in Mockingjay – Part 1 were terrific, and I look forward to seeing how he expands on them for the finale. Check out the new The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 image below. »

Julianne Moore brings piercing specificity to Alice’s slide into Alzheimer’s, while comedy rappers Die Antwoord rescue Robocop knockoff Chappie

Playing an elegant, erudite Columbia professor gradually losing her well-appointed existence to Alzheimer’s disease, Julianne Moore didn’t need to be half as good as she is in Still Alice (Curzon, 12) merely to win an Oscar. The role is a gift-wrapped one for any skilled actor with an Iou from the academy. Moore, however, goes for extra credit with the piercing specificity of her character’s slide into the abyss: subtly shifting the set of her jaw from scene to scene, she articulates newly evasive words with a determination that soon snaps achingly into defeat.

She’s a marvel, whom directors Wash Westmoreland and the late Richard Glatzer possibly don’t trust enough to carry the emotional charge of their tender, tactful-to-a-fault film. A maudlin piano score, seemingly plucked from a life-insurance ad, »

With exactly one week until The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 invades Comic-Con 2015, Entertainment Weekly has debuted two new photos from The Hunger Games franchise finale, set for release on November 20. Both images feature Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen reuniting with fashion guru Effie Trinket, played by Elizabeth Banks. The actresses represent just a few of the numerous female stars in the movie, including, Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Stef Dawson and Gwendoline Christie, with director Francis Lawrence revealing that all of the females shine in this finale.

"There is some serious girl power in this movie. She (Suzanne Collins) wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit."

The director also teased that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 will be quite the tearjerker.

"It's probably the most emotional of the bunch. And I think it's the most &#173satisfying of the bunch."

Oscars: Biopics, Diversity Dearth Shape Midyear Race

2 July 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2015 hits the halfway mark, it’s encouraging that so many upcoming films look promising — because so far, the Oscar possibilities are meager, to say the least.

Once again, fact-based dramas will dominate awards buzz. There are at least 14 with scheduled dates, and another three possibilities for this year. Six of these earn the highest possible praise: People from rival studios like them.

That roster includes “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp as Boston mob kingpin Whitey Bulger; “Concussion,” about the NFL’s efforts to deny the repercussions of players’ repeated concussions; “Spotlight,” with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered child abuse in the Catholic Church; “Trumbo,” about Dalton Trumbo and the House Un-American Activities Committee; “Truth,” the Dan Rather-George W. Bush scandal pic; and “The Walk,” about high-wire artist Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Director Francis Lawrence has also spoken of the empowering nature of the film series, which he says is down to Suzanne Collins' source novels: "There is some serious girl power in this movie. She wrote it that way, and it's been so much fun to inhabit."

‘Philadelphia’ Screenwriter on Gay Marriage, Legacy of Tom Hanks AIDS Drama

1 July 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ron Nyswaner was nominated for a screenwriting Oscar for 1993’s “Philadelphia,” the breakthrough drama starring Tom Hanks that portrayed a gay man living with AIDS. He also wrote the upcoming fall release “Freeheld,” starring Julianne Moore and Ellen Page as domestic partners.

Did Hollywood pave the way for gay marriage?

It is a little self-aggrandizing to say that, because I’ve contributed to popular images of gay people. But I think it’s absolutely true. For the last 20 years, over and over again, I’ve been told stories. Somebody once said, “My parents stopped talking to me, then they saw ‘Philadelphia.’”

How long did it take to write?

About four years. Jonathan Demme and I were looking for the right story, always with the goal — which annoyed some people at the time — to have mainstream success with a movie about a gay man with AIDS. We worked really hard to »

Ellen Page’s Lesbian Drama ‘Freeheld’ Faces Tough Commercial Test

30 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shortly after she came out of the closet in February 2014, Ellen Page went to work playing Stacie Andree in “Freeheld,” about a real-life lesbian couple that must fight to keep pension benefits after one of them (Julianne Moore) becomes terminally ill.

Page saw the 2007 documentary short “Freeheld: The Laurel Hester Story,” and had been circling a scripted adaptation since then. “It’s always tough trying to finance an independent film, particularly when it’s about two women,” says Page, who is also a producer on the picture, along with her manager, Kelly Bush. “There’s this awful bias that women can’t carry films, which is being proven not true. Hopefully that will start to change.”

Page researched by spending time in the house where Andree and her partner Hester lived in New Jersey. “I’m grateful to tell the story, but you wish the movie didn’t exist, »

Gay Rights and Hollywood Still Have a Long Way to Go

29 June 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Activist David Mixner stood alone on a theater stage in Los Angeles at the start of this year’s Gay Pride Month, sharing his memories with an audience of friends, political figures and a smattering of celebrities, about the time Ronald Reagan saw the light.

It was 1978, and aides to Reagan, who was on the cusp of launching his presidential campaign, believed he was ready to endorse a California initiative to ban gays and lesbians from teaching in the state’s classrooms, a ballot proposition inspired by the anti-gay crusades of singer Anita Bryant.

Mixner remembered when he and fellow activist Peter Scott landed a secret meeting with Reagan, who was exceedingly charming and willing to listen. Mixner warned the soon-to-be candidate that the initiative would create anarchy: Students could retaliate for a bad grade by accusing their teachers of being gay.

Reagan didn’t immediately reveal what he was going to do, »

5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember

23 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Simon Columb with 5 reasons why The Lost World: Jurassic Park isn’t as bad as you remember…

You did it. You planned to watch all three Jurassic Park films prior to watching Jurassic World and stalled after the first one.

There are problems with The Lost World: Jurassic Park, sure, but it is crucially a Spielberg film. Not executively-produced, but directed by the bearded cinematic deity himself. But you had to skip it because everyone ‘knows’ how bad it is. Truth be known, I don’t think it is that bad. I don’t see the horrendous train-wreck of a film, many believed it was…

The now-defunct podcast ‘Frankly, My Dear‘ once claimed – and I’m paraphrasing – “The Lost World is so bad that it puts in doubt whether Spielberg actually directed the film and, though people claim it’s only the San Diego bit which is bad, in fact, »

Criterion Collection: A Master Builder | Blu-ray Review

23 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The third experimental cinematic endeavor from the writing/acting duo of Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn, A Master Builder, at last reaches a notable platform of consumption with its inclusion in the Criterion collection. Their previous collaborations, My Dinner with Andre (1981) and Vanya on 42nd Street (1992), both directed by French auteur Louis Malle, have reached a sort of mythical status in the realm of art-house cinema. And so the rather hushed theatrical reception of this latest endeavor, another long-gestating exercise, this time re-working a late period play from Ibsen while Jonathan Demme usurps the directorial seat, perhaps has more to do with the fluctuating cinematic landscape. Existing, tonally, somewhere in-between the previous two ventures, this generally claustrophobic rendering doesn’t contain the same sense of innovative, inspiring energy, oscillating between moments of flaccid, rehearsed dialogue and moments of overwhelming emotional hysteria. As a filmed version of this experimental theater exercise, »

NBC’s Hannibal Series Cancelled

22 June 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Today is a sad one for fans of NBC's Hannibal, as it's been revealed that the currently in progress third season of the series will be the final one. Hannibal has been cancelled.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has given Bryan Fuller's TV series adaptation of Thomas Harris' novels the axe, and rights issues could be one potential reason why the series won't be moving forward. Clarice Starling, the character played by Jodie Foster and Julianne Moore on film, was thus far unable to be included in the series due to NBC not having the rights to her character.

The Starling factor is certainly not the only reason for Hannibal's cancellation. Ratings for Hannibal's third season have been relatively low, though the show continues to receive high praise from both fans of the Dr. Hannibal Lecter novels and films, as well as those who are »

Freeheld tells the story of fearless Police Detective Laurel Hester, working to bust New Jersey drug dealers with her long-term partner and mentor, Detective Dane Wells.
