Earth: One Amazing Day review – wild pussycats and daft zebras run riot

18 October 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Robert Redford narrates this high-def documentary about wild animals that eschews a Werner Herzog-style emphasis on the brutality of nature

This perfectly serviceable and somewhat conventional documentary tracks the daily struggle to survive for an assortment of wild animals. Adhering to the tried and tested tropes of nature documentaries, this one offers a discreet set of vignettes featuring assorted fauna in the full spectrum of landscapes (tropical, arctic, deserts and so on), usually in danger from predators or environmental risks. It subtextually reinforces the usual message about the diversity and resilience of nature and is sprinkled with a smattering of anthropomorphism.

So here are many of the usual suspects: tenacious reptiles, adorably fierce pouncing pussycats (in this case servals, a type of African wild cat), daft zebras, bears rubbing themselves on trees set to corny lounge music, and so on. Judging by the release date, the intended audience is families, »

Harvey Weinstein Accusations: How Film Festival Environments Provided a Backdrop For Sexual Assault

11 October 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 1995, Harvey Weinstein tried to give Mira Sorvino a massage, chasing her around the room when she rebuffed him. In 1996, he sexually assaulted rising French actress Judith Godrèche in a hotel room; a year later, he had another incident with Rose McGowan. In 2008, actress Louisette Geiss fled a hotel room where Weinstein tried to get her to watch him masturbate. In 2010, he tricked another French actress, Emma de Caunes, into visiting a hotel room where he exposed himself and tried to get her lie down. 

In all of these accounts, Weinstein seemed to think that the relative privacy of the hotel room provided him with a sanctuary in which he could perform deplorable acts on whomever he pleased, but the context was more specific than that: In every instance, he was at a film festival.

'Earth: One Amazing Day': Film Review

6 October 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Another day, another nature documentary.

At least that’s how it feels, as such offerings pop up with regularity in theaters and on television. But BBC Earth Film’s sequel to its popular Earth has several things going for it. The film largely avoids the treacly anthropomorphism that afflicts Disney’s efforts and makes them resemble live-action versions of cartoons. And it features genuinely stunning photography that certainly benefits from being seen on the big screen. Narrated by Robert Redford, Earth: One Amazing Day proves inspirational in its depiction of the wonders of the natural world.

“Ritesh Batra’s ‘Our Souls At Night’ starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda is a masterpiece” – Subhash K Jha

4 October 2017 2:08 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Our Souls At Night

Starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda

Directed by Ritesh Batra

It starts quietly, and ends without drama, melo- or otherwise. After The Lunchbox and its tad disappointing followup The Sense Of An Ending, you know how it is with Ritesh Batra. This is a filmmaker who loves silence and embraces it with all its inbuilt hazards and uncertainties.

We’ve seen him work wonders with wordless emotions in his earlier works. So no surprise if here he once again weaves a luminous lucidity into the looming stillness of a landscape that won’t judge mankind. Kindly or otherwise.

With Our Souls At Night, a deeply stirring gentle humane drama about two autumnal souls drifting together in ways that The Bridges Of Madison County could never fathom, Batra joins the ranks of the greatest living filmmakers. And we are not speaking of India alone. Batra is a »

Harry Dean Stanton’s Last Film ‘Lucky’ Leads Crowded Specialty Box Office

1 October 2017 10:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nearly 30 specialized films debuted in New York and/or Los Angeles this week. And with Yom Kippur falling right during the weekend, it meant most potentially high-end titles avoided the date (unlike last weekend).

Perhaps the highest-profile among them, “Our Souls at Night” starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, is debuting on Netflix film at the same time it played a few scattered big city play dates (grosses are not available).

Among those that opened, “Lucky” (Magnolia), Harry Dean Stanton’s second to last acting role, opened ahead of the rest. The initial limited full week (prior to its one-day showings) of “Pearl Jam: Let’s Play Two” (Abramorama) showed some strength, while “Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House” (Sony Pictures Classics) fared less well in its limited showings. An exclusive opening in Los Angeles of the surfer documentary “Take Every Wave” (IFC) in Los Angeles was impressive, »

The ‘Avatar’ Sequels “Will Be the Most Expensive Movies of All Time,” According to Fox

30 September 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Toward the end of Robert Redford's Quiz Show, Martin Scorsese shows up to play a powerful executive who snorts at the very real allegations of corruption leveled at him. At the end of the scene, he comments that audiences never really care about televised contests or quiz shows, that all they really wanted to do was watch the money being spent, teased, lost, or won.

15 Actors Almost Cast as Superman

30 September 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Sylvester Stallone?!" Christopher Reeve cast such a long shadow after his incredible portrayal of Superman it took years to get another actor into the cape. (And lookalike actor Brandon Routh's performance in Superman Returns was nothing short of homage.) But before Christopher Reeve, and in many developmental stages along the way, under the guidance of directors like Tim Burton, Brett Ratner, and McG, a handful of major movie stars came close to securing the role of DC's Last Son of Krypton. Here, we're looking at 15 actors who were almost Superman.

Paul Newman

Paul Newman, the late screen legend who starred opposite Robert Redford in the cinematic classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, among other notable roles, turned down Superman not once, not twice, but three different times. He was offered the lead role, as well as the roles of Lex Luthor and Superman's dad, »

You ever have a first week of work where seemingly everything went wrong? Well, now you have something in common with Megyn Kelly.

The former Fox News anchor, who bolted to NBC News back in January for a reported $17 million, made her debut on the venerable Today show on Monday, hosting an all-new hour titled Megyn Kelly Today. But after the numerous stumbles Kelly suffered during her premiere week, NBC might want to considering retitling it Megyn Kelly: Is Today Over Yet?
