TV Review: ‘Feud’

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Feud,” which tells the story of clashing screen titans Joan Crawford and Bette Davis around the production of their 1962 film “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?,” is a series designed for a knowing audience, a basket of Easter eggs. The mythos of the film’s production — which cast the two rivals as two sisters raised in show business — is intertwined with each actress’ place in Hollywood legend; it was a last-ditch attempt at relevance for both “mature” stars, in an industry that would have preferred to shove them aside for younger women. As “Feud” relates, even though Crawford brought the project to Davis and profited off of its success, she couldn’t stomach the fact that Davis was nominated for an Academy Award over her. Stoked by alcohol and anger, Crawford went so far as to actively campaign against her costar in the 1963 Oscar race — before mutual desperation brought the two actresses together again for “HushHush »

Feud: Bette And Joan Review

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

“Feuds are never about hate,” famed screen legend Olivia de Havilland (Catherine Zeta-Jones) explains to a documentary film director in the opening minutes of what’s likely to be your simmering new obsession: Feud. “They’re about pain.” Anthology fetishist Ryan Murphy understands that pathos to a disturbingly detailed degree, and in tracking the blistering “friendship” between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, he ends up with one of his best cracks at the anthology genre in years.

The show’s premise risks stepping into the catty trap of comebacks and catfights at first blush, but Murphy and company have no desire to reduce Bette and Joan’s discourse into a frivolous fiasco. Feud is deliberate and cunning, with as much guile and guts as the two women at its center. Its drama is a slower-burn than Murphy’s typical chomping-at-the-bit style, »

‘Feud’: Inside Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon’s Take on a Hollywood Battle Royale

15 February 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dressed in a black ensemble topped by a long brown coat, Ryan Murphy darts back and forth between two rooms in the chilly Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. On this January day, a cramped space in this deliciously retro complex houses the monitors for Murphy as he directs an episode of his new FX series “Feud: Bette and Joan” that is set at the 1963 Academy Awards.

It’s a pivotal moment in the famous rivalry between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Having co-starred in “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” both women wanted the career boost of appearing on the Oscar podium. While it’s tough to spoil an event that happened more than five decades ago, let’s just say it was, to quote Davis, a “bumpy night.”

Feud” — which debuts March 5 — mines that decades-old conflict to tell a modern and highly relevant story about Hollywood, sexism, and survival.

Feud: Bette and Joan Review: Oscar Winners Lange and Sarandon Turn Camp Into an Acting Master Class

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you created a TV show in a laboratory with the specific aim of winning a Best Actress Emmy… it’d probably look a lot like FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan. For better or worse.

The first season of Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series (debuting Sunday, March 5 at 10/9c) is an actor’s dream, letting Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon rip each other to shreds and chew up every bit of scenery as dueling Hollywood divas Joan Crawford and Bette Davis.

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Review: Why Care About the Facts When a Show Feels This True?

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” is a TV show built on pure gossipy indulgence; one that’s inclined to believe the most juicy stories about its characters, but not in a bad way. Historical reports about the truth of what happened on the set of “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” and surrounding events are up for dispute, so instead we have the popular myths surrounding Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s legendary — and last — on-screen collaboration put on display by Ryan Murphy and his team. The end result is at times simultaneously obvious, essential, and not nearly as campy as you might expect.

And it turns out, that’s for the best.

Review: Justice League Dark

7 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The concept of the DC Comics’ mystical characters gathering to combat occult evil always sounds good but of course, execution is everything. When it was done sparingly, as in Swamp Thing #50, it was quite effective. As an ongoing series, it proved tough to manage since each player was plucked from a title that had a fairly unique look and feel.

That said, the newly released animated Justice League Dark film is incredibly entertaining and certainly a cut above the last half-dozen releases. From a story by Jld writer J.M. DeMatteis and Ernie Altbacker, Altbacker’s script shifts the super-heroic DC Universe to supernatural threats that Superman (Jerry O’Connell), Wonder Woman (Rosario Dawson), Green Lantern (Roger Cross) and the others are less equipped to handle. Altbacker is no stranger to heroes and magicians with credits including Spooksville and Green Lantern: The Animated Series and he does a fine job weaving the various threads. »

Goteborg, Sweden — “Lone Scherfig is one of the very best Nordic filmmakers of her generation. Skillfully, with curiosity, she has experimented with different aesthetic expressions, but it is always with wit and sharpness she portrays the complexity, passion and darkness in people’s lives,” said Goteborg Fest artistic director Jonas Holmberg, presenting the 207 Nordic Honorary Dragon Award to the Danish writer-director.

The prize-winner was honored with a three-film howcase of three films: 2000 Danish breakthrough, “Italian for Beginners”; her 2014 U.K. drama-thriller “The Riot Club”; and the Swedish premiere of her latest U.K. romantic dramedy, “Their Finest,” starring Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin and Bill Nighy, opening this spring.
