What’s New on HBO: February 2016

1 February 2016 7:57 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At the beginning of (and during) each month, HBO adds new movies and TV shows to HBO Go and HBO Now. We figure you want to know what they are. For more comprehensive coverage of the best titles available on HBO and elsewhere, check out Vulture’s What to Stream Now hub, which is updated throughout the month. Sexual healing: Magic Mike (2012) and Magic Mike Xxl (2015) Magic Mike is a solid, occasionally very fun look at lives of male strippers in Florida, with an accountant’s eye for the mechanics of the industry. Magic Mike Xxl is a road-trip comedy plus a “one last job” heist movie about a “pilgrimage to Myrtle Beach” for a stripping convention, which makes it sort of like The Canterbury Tales, if every tale was about a different way to please a woman. It’s the best acting showcase Joe Manganiello, Andie MacDowell, and possibly »

Sundance: A Welcome Rebuke to Hollywood’s Diversity Woes

27 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: At the studio level, American cinema seems to be in the full throes of a diversity crisis, as moviegoers and the media alike are finally taking Hollywood to task for its lopsidedly white-centric worldview. It’s a real problem, and one whose solution I’m happy to see suggested at the Sundance Film Festival, which has long extended a megaphone to so-called “outsider” voices. Judging by the U.S. competition alone, the broad-ranging field of representation includes Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” (which re-creates Nat Turner’s rebellion) and Richard Tanne’s “Southside With You” (which re-creates Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date) alongside Andrew Ahn’s gay-Asian identity exploration “Spa Night” and Elizabeth Wood’s wildly over-the-top “White Girl” (Wood is one of five distaff directors in competition, two of whom aren’t white).

The good news is that these movies somehow managed »

Watch: 9-Minute Video Essay About Steven Soderbergh's Debut Feature Film 'Sex, Lies, And Videotape'

15 January 2016 12:51 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Before he captivated television audiences with (in this author’s humble opinion) one of the greatest television shows ever made — the pulsating, sensuous “The Knick” — Steven Soderbergh began something of an indie revolution with his debut film “Sex, Lies, and Videotape” in 1989. Known as an incredibly hands-on director (and editor, cinematographer, screenwriter, and producer — using various pseudonyms on his projects for each position) since his first film, Soderbergh’s career would perhaps not have taken the same shape without this Palme d'Or-winning masterpiece. Starring James Spader, Andie MacDowell, Laura San Giacomo, and Peter Gallagher, “Sex, Lies, and Videotape” is an iconic look into the secret lives of relationships and affairs. It’s raw emotion and challenging sex scenes paved the way for the cinema of the years to come. Read More: Steven Soderbergh Talks ‘Mosaic,’ ‘Kafka’ & Plans To Still Make ‘The Sot-Weed Factor' »

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 40-31

9 January 2016 4:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Welcome back to the Definitive List, where for the inaugural top 50, we’re counting down the best romantic comedies. The majority of numbers 50 through 41 weren’t so traditional. A secret-admirer movie, a period piece, a “These two don’t make sense together” movie, and a French fantasy among them, but we still managed to squeak in a Wes Anderson movie and a surrealist masterpiece. It doesn’t get any more traditional from here, as numbers 40 through 31 jumps around just as much, from sub-genre to sub-genre. Regardless, these films have made their mark on the industry and still hold a place in the pantheon of the rom-com hall of fame.

#40. Groundhog Day (1993)

Bill Murray was nominated for an Oscar after his dramatic turn in Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation. He has shown great promise in Wes Anderson’s films. But his best performance to date came in this Harold Ramis »

Variety Critics Pick Their Oscar Nominees

5 January 2016 11:46 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Film critics, we’re often told, don’t vote for the Oscars — but if they did, here’s what at least three of their nomination ballots might look like. We listed our top five choices for best director, actor/actress, supporting actor/actress, original/adapted screenplay and cinematography. For best picture, we allowed ourselves 10 choices, based on the unlikely but theoretically possible outcome of 10 nominees in that category.

Because we chose from the full spectrum of studio, independent and foreign-language films released in the U.S. in 2015, it’s exceedingly unlikely that our selections will match or even resemble whatever the Academy comes up with on Jan. 15. And a good thing, too. Quality doesn’t limit itself to those movies with the marketing dollars to support a full-fledged Oscar campaign, and there are any number of worthy films and performances that Academy members — who are in the business of making movies, »
