Lolo Movie Review

14 hours ago | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Lolo Director: Julie Delpy Starring: Julie Delpy, Dany Boon, Vincent Lacoste, Karin Viard. Woody Allen in the Us and Nanni Moretti in Italy are an example of filmmakers who write their scripts, direct them and interpret them. Julie Delpy, in the tough man’s world of motion pictures, embodies a cinematic female superhero from the land of liberty, equality and brotherhood. Her talent as an actress emerged through Richard Linklater’s triptych (‘Before Sunrise,’ ‘Before Sunset,’ ‘Before Midnight’); and she has been just as brilliant as a director (‘2 Days in Paris,’ ‘The Countess,’ ‘2 Days in New York’). Delpy returns behind and in front of the camera with a script  [ Read More ]

Lolo review – Julie Delpy's charmless comedy is devoid of laughs

19 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The French actor, writer and director disappoints in this tale of an obsessive son and his mother

Julie Delpy is a stylish actor and film-maker who has made movies with Krzysztof Kieslowski, Richard Linklater and Jim Jarmusch, and directed garrulous and witty features of her own. But this film, which she has directed and co-written, is a disaster. It’s an oppressively unfunny and unconvincing mainstream French comedy featuring Delpy herself alongside Dany Boon. This male lead is perhaps best known for starring in the homegrown box office smash Bienvenue Chez Les Ch’tis, (Welcome to the Boondocks, 2008) and Boon’s colossal popularity might be as mystifying to the British as Sid James is to the French.

Before We Go | Review

Here We Go Again: Evans’ Nondescript Venture a Familiar Recipe of Whirlwind Romance

Love is not a many splendored thing in actor Chris Evans’ directorial debut, Before We Go, a mediocre two-hander requiring a certain finesse not in evidence either before or in front of the camera, at least enough to believably carry us off into the sunset of illogical romantic inclinations. That’s not to say the film is terrible or even evidence that Evans should quit his day job, but mostly how it unfortunately elicits an overall and achingly constant ‘meh.’ Saddled with one of those vaguely poetic titles reminiscent of a slew of emotionally malleable indie films like Before I Disappear or Away We Go, even though it probably wants to be comparable to Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight trilogy, perhaps we shouldn’t be disappointed since the comfortably predictable narrative can’t be accused »

Dope review – kids too hip for the trip

3 September 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The nerds aren’t nerdy enough in Rick Famuyima’s eagerly awaited tale of three hip-hop-loving teenagers heading for trouble

Is 2015 a bad vintage for American independent movies? This time last year we had Richard Linklater’s transcendentally simple Boyhood to enthuse about, a breakout hit from Sundance. And although Linklater’s hopes were not entirely fulfilled on Oscar night, pundits and awards voters always like to feel that among the glitz and bling of prizegiving ceremonies there will always be, metaphorically speaking, some indie underdog stubble among the sleek tuxed throng.

Dope is a case in point: a movie executive produced by Sean Combs and written and directed by Rick Famuyiwa. Really great things were hoped for from Dope. Excitement spiralled for it at Sundance in January and the film sold for headline-grabbing sums. But now that the auction excitement has worn off, and the film is re-examined in a cooler light, »

How Kids’ TV Networks Are Fighting Off Their Frightening Decline

2 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Game Shakers” debuts on Nickelodeon on Sept. 12, the sitcom might seem like more of the same from the kids’ network. It comes from Dan Schneider, the creator of past Nick franchises like “iCarly,” and features the return of actor Kel Mitchell, known for his tenure on “Kenan & Kel” on the network in the ’90s.

But “Game Shakers” distinguishes itself from the Nick hits of yore because of how its narrative lives on beyond the TV. Each time the two young female coders depicted in the sitcom develop a gaming app, an actual version of the app will appear in tandem with the storyline in digital outlets including the network’s website and iTunes. “It’s not just a linear show we are looking at,” explained Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s president of content and development.

Nickelodeon’s parent company, Viacom, isn’t the only conglomerate innovating its TV programming strategy across digital platforms, »

"Jack Reacher 2" Dated, Linklater's Next Titled

2 September 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have locked down an October 21st 2016 release date for the upcoming sequel to 2012's "Jack Reacher," the adaptation of the novel "One Shot" from Lee Child's popular Jack Reacher book series.

Ed Zwick is directing the Tom Cruise-led sequel which begins shooting in November and is based on the novel "Never Go Back". Paramount balked on the idea of a sequel initially, but as people have discovered the film in ancillary markets it has become a quite profitable little movie for them.

At the same time, Paramount has also confirmed that the title of Richard Linklater's next film is set to be "Everybody Wants Some" and has confirmed that it's still set for an April 15th 2016 release date.

A history of stoners in film

27 August 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra’s release in UK cinemas, we look at the rise of the stoner in film, from the 30s to the present...

"The motion picture you are about to witness may startle you. It would not have been possible, otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers. Marihuana is that drug - a violent narcotic - an unspeakable scourge - the Real Public Enemy Number One!

So reads the opening crawl to the now infamous film Reefer Madness. Originally released in 1936, it was designed as a hard-hitting expose of marijuana and its inherent dangers. The drug could cause "violent, uncontrollable laughter," the movie's introduction read. It could induce "dangerous hallucinations," "monstrous extravagances," all eventually leading to "shocking acts of physical violence... ending often in incurable insanity."

Reefer Madness was one of many »

Ohman to direct remake of 'Simple Simon' with 'Breaking Bad' producer

21 August 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Swedish director working with Breaking Bad producer Mark Johnson.

Andreas Ohman, the Swedish writer/director of 2010 Oscar-shortlisted drama Simple Simon, is attached to direct a Us remake of the film.

A Us writer is now being confirmed for the project, and Ohman will travel to Los Angeles this autumn to start collaborating on the film, which is expected to shoot in 2016.

Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad) is producing.

The original comedy, Simple Simon, is about an 18-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome who tries to play matchmaker for his brother.

“I’m very confident with the story and feel like I’ve personally developed so much since I was 24 (and shot the first film),” said Ohman.

“It’s similar, but it’s a new take. Doing it in another language also helps to make it different… it also feels like my next step should be an international movie.”

Watch a Red-Band Trailer for 'Hell and Back,' the Latest Attempt at a Mainstream R-Rated Animated Movie

20 August 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Animation has never been exclusively geared to children, but sometime in the last half century or so it's become more associated with family entertainment and kiddie fare. Sure, there's the niche popularity of anime and acclaim of animated documentaries like Waltz With Bashir and the cult successes of Ralph Bakshi and Richard Linklater, but very rarely do grown-up-targeted animated features break out into the mainstream. South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut is probably the closest thing to an animated blockbuster stamped with an R rating. It had the benefit of being based on a very popular television series. Trey Parker and Matt Stone made substantially less money with the original work Team America: World Police. Still, it does help to start out with TV projects if...

Watch: Young Richard Linklater and Robert Rodriguez Talk Texas Filmmaking in Rare Early Interviews

Read More: 'Thanks for Having Us' Web Series Explores the Austin Comedy Scene A feature documentary in the making, "When We Were Live" is in the process of restoring hundreds of old VHS tapes from the public access age, many of which contain interviews and footage of now-famous directors. The documentary's director, John Moore, has posted two of these clips -- interviews with Richard Linklater and Robert Rodriguez -- that will certainly evoke nostalgia for the bygone era of public access TV. Public access TV -- something that is now entirely lost to the reign of the YouTube generation -- now stands as a vestige and emblem of old Diy filmmaking. Austin's public access TV in the '80s and '90s was a thriving world of both the eccentric and the boundary-pushing, and was an exciting new space for future and would-be actors and directors.

Tiff 2015 adds to their Documentary and Vanguard lineup

11 August 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Toronto International Film Festival’s prominence on the festival circuit has only grown over the years, with films from numerous different fields having gone on to critical and commercial acclaim. Among the festival’s different categories are Tiff Docs and Vanguard. Tiff Docs allows documentaries to get their own spotlight at the festival, giving acclaimed documentarians such as Michael Moore and Frederick Wiseman a platform for their films. The Vanguard section, on the other hand, showcases films that aren’t easily categorisable into a specific genre. With the Canadian Films lineup announcement having revealed the first set of films playing in each group, Tiff today revealed more of the lineup in each section. The list of newly announced films, with their official synopses, is as follows.

The Deauville American Film Festival is set to pay homage to American star Keanu Reeves during its 41st edition which is set to take place Sept.4-14.

As part of the tribute, Deauville will host a retrospective of Reeves’s most popular movies.

“Forever Neo from ‘Matrix,’ Jonathan Harker in ‘Dracula’ or Le Chevalier Danceny in ‘Dangerous Liaisons,’ Keanu Reeves has demonstrated his ability to take on extremely varied roles during his long and impressive movie career. He has worked with directors such as Gus Van Sant, Francis Ford Coppola, Bernardo Bertolucci and more recently Richard Linklater,” the festival said.

Reeves, who will be present in Deauville, made his directorial debut on Chinese/U.S. co-production “Man of Tai Chi,” a martial arts drama inspired by the life of stuntman Tiger Chen that came out in 2013.
