Mockingjay Part 2 – Geek Girl Navigating the World

29 November 2015 4:28 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Whenever a franchise offers up its last installment, it’s a bittersweet moment. Fans gather to rejoice in the completion of a story while also mourning this last momentous occasion shared this way. “Mockingjay Part 2” marks the end of “The Hunger Games” as a theater experience.

Fans are going to the movie, it’s currently winning the box office race, but compared to the previous movies, it’s not grossing as highly as the others. It’s not for lack of quality, nor for lack of excitement on the part of fans.  Thanksgiving weekend isn’t quite over, and I think surprises are still in store with regard to those numbers.

Certainly, there are going to be people who won’t want to go see “Mockingjay Part 2” right away because they know you can only see it for the first time once. It’s the kind of movie you need »

A first crack at SAG predictions

27 November 2015 1:28 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Ahoy folks. I’ve been tackling Academy Award and Golden Globe predictions for a while now, as you all know, but there are of course other awards and/or precursors worth mentioning. Over the rest of the season, I’ll be trying to figure those out too, with today marking the starting point for 2015 as I attempt to decode what the Screen Actors Guild might do (with today also Black Friday, as we all do shopping, voters in various precursors are watching screeners). SAG is one of the most important precursors, mainly because it shows off what the acting branch of the Academy might be thinking. This year, with such a wide open race in almost all categories, you have to imagine that SAG will be one of the biggest guild announcements of the year. Below you’ll see my predictions in all of the SAG categories, but keep in »

Movie Review – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015)

27 November 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, 2015.

Directed by Francis Lawrence.

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Banks, Natalie Dormer, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Sam Clafin.


As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts by the Capitol, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.

The saga of The Hunger Games finally comes to a close with the second half of Mockingjay an enjoyable and decent finale for the series.  The Young Adult fiction sensation about a dystopian future captured the imagination of a generation and saw each film break the box office.

The final instalment starts straight after the cliffhanger conclusion of Part 1 which saw Peta (Hutcherson) brainwashed into trying to kill Katniss (Lawrence) and the destruction of the fascist capitol Panem almost certain. »

Nathaniel Gives Thanks

26 November 2015 7:45 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

You've heard from a few members of our team of their quick lists of gratitude so naturally your host and obsessive ringleader, Nathaniel, must chime in. As you read this I'm surely already stuffing myself but this year I've planned ahead with a big diet and exercize program to commence on November 30th.

I'm thankful for...

..."rug" in Room, steering wheels in Mad Max Fury Road, the train sets in Carol and Ant-Man, and Gerda's evolving portraits of Lili in The Danish Girl

... Grandma's bonobos fixation

... Sarah Paulson's ability to elevate every single project she's in whether said project is awesome (Carol) or, let's say, "challenged" (Ahs: Hotel and Ahs in general for that matter)

... the way 2015's hottest topics kept reminding us of Cate Blanchett's Blue Jasmine speech in 2014

The world is round, people!"

...a tight squeeze, with shimmering bosom, in Paolo Sorrentino's Youth

Ifp Gothams Boost Further Kudos Campaigns

26 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Birdman” and “Boyhood.” “Citizenfour” and Julianne Moore. They all won Oscars this year. But they were also winners of 2014 Ifp Gotham Awards, the first major awards show of the season and one that really poses a chicken-and-egg question about statuettes and campaigns and who influences what.

“Because we’re so early, by putting a spotlight on our nominees and winning films we’re giving confidence to distributors, encouragement to go on and campaign,” says Joana Vicente, executive director of the Independent Feature Project, which has been sponsoring the Gothams now for 25 years. “Not that the films would need it but, especially with the smaller ones, but it’s really a boost. It ends up having an impact, which is great, though that’s definitely not the mission — the mission is to elevate and celebrate independent films.”

Two new categories have been added to the program: Breakthrough Awards will recognize achievement »

Jason Gives Thanks

24 November 2015 2:19 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Howdy folks it's Jason here - with this week's "Beauty vs Beast" we gave some thanks for two classic Christina Ricci performances (have you voted yet?) but it's a rich world with lots of good to great stuff in it so here are a few more things that have brought a big dumb smile to my big dumb face this year.

- For Getting On and the spectacular showcase it's given three crazy talented actresses (not to mention all the smaller roles they fill in with even more under-used gems), letting each of them be both hysterically funny and heartbreaking within the matter of milliseconds (and for introducing the phrase "anal horn" into my vocabulary - that one's a keeper!)

- For the venom that dripped off of Rose Byrne's every ace line reading in Spy (this scene in particular)

- For whoever is tailoring Chad Radwell's khakis on »

The Films of Todd Haynes: Performance, Desire, and Identity

24 November 2015 10:55 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Returning to the big screen after nearly a decade, queer maestro Todd Haynes presents his film Carol, based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith, a rapturous love story between Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara. In honor of the release, the Film Society at Lincoln Center has assembled a retrospective called “Todd Haynes: The Other Side of Dreams,” and, for our own appreciation, we’re taking a look back at his films.

Through glances, touches, performances, cleaning, singing, organizing, cooking, and sex, Todd Haynes has established himself as one of the most inventive filmmakers, and perhaps the most daringly unapologetic when it comes to broaching topics of identity, femininity, queerness, love, and desire. But his work is also imbued with passion and sensitivity, and he’s as invested in characters’ interior lives as he is playing intellectual games with the audience. Join us as we take a walk through his filmography. »

10 Ravishing Films Shot by ‘Carol’ Cinematographer Edward Lachman

23 November 2015 10:06 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Cinematographer Edward Lachman may not be a household name, though he undoubtedly should be. One of the most highly regarded directors of photography in the business, Lachman has collaborated with some of the best filmmakers of his generation: Steven Soderbergh, Todd Haynes, Todd Solondz, Paul SchraderSofia Coppola, Robert Altman, Werner Herzog, George Sluizer, Wim Wenders, Mira Nair, Ulrich Seidl, and Andrew Niccol — to name a handful.

His career began in 1975 by photographing the infamous Sylvester StalloneHenry Winkler Brooklyn gang cult-fave, The Lords of Flatbush. In the last 40 years, he’s carved out a truly varied résumé. For example: in 2002, Lachman co-directed Ken Park with filmmaker Larry Clark, before moving onto direct the exercise video Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease in 2003.

Lachman’s most recent feature, Carol — his third partnership with Haynes, and perhaps his finest work — just entered a limited release, so there’s no better time to »

Biopics are Topic du Jour, Acting Frontrunners Play Real-Life Figures

23 November 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

This year’s Oscar hopefuls boasts the largest roster of biopics in recent memory. From more traditional, straight-forward affairs such as Straight Outta Compton and Black Mass, to films that focus on one particular real-life event such as The Big Short and Spotlight, to less typical takes focused on separate periods in the subjects’ lives such as Steve Jobs and Love & Mercy, this year’s films cover the entire spectrum of the biopic genre.

As a result, many of the frontrunners in the four major acting categories are for performances portraying real-life people. Looking back on the Academy’s history, it is hard to find a year in which an acting award did not go to a performer portraying a real person. Eddie Redmayne, Matthew McConaughey, and Daniel Day-Lewis (the last three best actor winners) all starred in biographical films.

This year the trend looks to continue, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 scores lowest domestic opening weekend of the franchise, $247 million worldwide

22 November 2015 11:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The fourth and final instalment of The Hunger Games franchise exploded into cinemas this past Thursday, and despite some polls claiming it to be more anticipated than Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 has scored the lowest domestic opening weekend of the series, pulling in an estimated $101 million in North America.

The biggest opener of the franchise remains the second chapter, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which debuted to $158 million back in 2013, followed by the 2012 original with $152 million and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 with $122 million last November.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 review – dystopian drama struggles to its conclusion

Jennifer Lawrence fights on to the flawed denoument of an entertaining series with complex ideas about power and corruption

If The Hunger Games was Battle Royale, Catching Fire was Rollerball and Mockingjay – Part 1 was Broadcast News, then everything goes a bit Quantum of Solace in this hotchpotch final instalment. MJ2 picks up exactly where its predecessor left off, with Katniss Everdeen (girl on fire Jennifer Lawrence) nursing injuries inflicted upon her by the recently retrieved but still brainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson). As rebel forces ready themselves for the last battle with President Snow (the silver-tongued Donald Sutherland), Julianne Moore’s Alma Coin starts to look less like a liberator than an ice queen in waiting, leaving Katniss wondering what – and for whom – she is fighting.

Despite an attempt to bring the spirit of the games on to the battlefield (marauding House of the Dead-style “mutts” and contrived booby-trapped battlefields »

Film Review: Grim Conclusion for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2’

20 November 2015 5:46 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – This has to be what the filmmakers intended when they split the final book of the “Hunger Games” series into two films. While “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1” was all set up, Part 2 doesn’t just lead up to a huge climax.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

It’s all climax in a campaign that barely stops to breathe. When the characters aren’t running for their lives they’re engaged in a passionless love triangle. It’s all brooding conversations in darkness, and booby traps as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) marches on the Capitol to stick an arrow through President Snow’s (Donald Sutherland) heart.

This series is no one’s idea of great filmmaking, but they do have enough resources and tools at their disposal to elevate them above the usual Young Adult franchises. Gone are the social and political commentaries and the fantastical world of the capitol filled with extravagent excess. »
