Review: Song to Song

21 March 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

By Eric Blume

It’s difficult to review Song to Song, the latest film from Terrence Malick, because based on the standards of cinema (plot, characters, structure, acting, etc.), it’s a pretty terrible movie.  But with this film, Malick continues his journey to discover some sort of new cinematic language and style that has a weird beauty all its own.

The story, such as it is, revolves around three people in the music business (played by Michael Fassbender, Rooney Mara, and Ryan Gosling).  They go in and out of relationships with each other and a few other folks (notably Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, and Bond girl Berenice Marlohe).  Malick gives you no real sense of time, so it’s never 100% clear what happens when exactly.  But there are many, many scenes with those five people running their hands over each others’ bodies while voiceover proclaims banalities about sex and connection. »

Lego Thor Ragnarok Leaks

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.

Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features »

‘Song To Song’ Review: Terrence Malick’s Star-Laden Drama Takes A Long Time To Go Absolutely Nowhere

17 March 2017 4:46 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

When you have a movie starring Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman, you might think that would be cause for celebration this weekend. But it turns out that the film they are in, Song To Song, is more like a cause for pain. As I say in my video review above, this latest piece of cinematic indulgence from director Terrence Malick is a waste of talent and time that basically is just the latest in a series of diminishing efforts… »

Jane Foster’s absence in Thor: Ragnarok explained

17 March 2017 2:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve known for a while that Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster wouldn’t be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok, with Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige making the announcement back in May of last year, and Portman herself following that up by saying she believes she’s now done with Marvel.

Well, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now know how Jane’s absence will be explained in Thor: Ragnarok, and it’s pretty simple really – she’s broken up with the God of Thunder.

He’s off exploring the universe, still trying to police it and control the mayhem,” said Hemsworth. “But he’s certainly enjoying being a drifter, being a solo cowboy out there.”

There is of course a new female lead in Thor: Ragnarok, with Tessa Thompson taking on the role of Valkyrie, and Feige has discussed the relationship between the two Asgardians, suggesting that it may not be »

Terrence Malick continues his surge of productivity with “Song to Song”

16 March 2017 11:58 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Once upon a time, Terrence Malick was a filmmaker who took a legendarily long amount of time between projects. He has since shrunk his turnaround time significantly, becoming, at least by his standards, rather prolific. Sadly, that’s also led to diminishing returns, at least in this writer’s humble opinion. This week, Malick unleashes another film in Song to Song, one that’s spiritually similar to his last few flicks. It’s not the outright misfire that the last two were, but it’s nowhere near the quality that he was previously known for. It’s a shame, but this might be the new normal for him. Alas. The movie is a romantic drama set against the music scene in Austin, Texas. Plot and dialogue are essentially non-existent, but there’s a love triangle of sorts between musician Bv (Ryan Gosling), aspiring musician Faye (Rooney Mara), and producer Cook »

Why Chris Hemsworth Thought Marvel Had Fired Him as Thor

15 March 2017 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Captain America: Civil War, though billed as a Captain America movie, was more or less an Avengers movie. Many jokingly called it Avengers 2.5. Some members of the team did have to sit the big brawl out, though. Namely Thor and Hulk. It turns out that because he wasn't included, Chris Hemsworth thought he'd actually been fired from his role as Thor.

The actor recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his upcoming movie Thor: Ragnarok, his third solo movie as the God of Thunder. In his mind, that movie wasn't even going to happen. At least not with him, since he didn't get to duke it out with some of the other Marvel superheroes in Captain America: Civil War. Luckily he wasn't right, but it is kind of funny to think that someone so beloved by Marvel fans even had to have that thought. Here is what he had to say about it. »

'Song to Song' Review: Terrence Malick's Austin-Music Movie Is One Texas Turkey

15 March 2017 2:19 PM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The music scene in Austin, Texas, is alive with talent and energy – and you hope that energy would inspire Terrence Malick, who lives there, to bust out of the filmmaking funk of his recent work (Knight of Cups, To the Wonder). No such luck. Despite a few glimpses of Iggy Pop, Flea, Lykke Li and Big Freedia in live performance, Song to Song has no music in its DNA, not to mention its soul. Instead, Malick indulges in his usual visual tropes, having characters wander around aimlessly while muttering their mock-profound thoughts in voiceover. »

Chris Hemsworth thought he was fired after Captain America: Civil War absence

15 March 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thor actor Chris Hemsworth thought that his absence from Captain America: Civil War meant he was fired.

Civil War was huge, the superhero team up flick included a who’s who of Marvel characters, and everyone was there. Well, everyone that is except for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner. And Hemsworth has now revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he initially thought that he had been fired because he didn’t get the call to action.

“I was like, ‘What? Are we being fired?’ Marvel quickly reassured us, ‘No you guys have got your own journey going on, and in order for that to work you can’t be a part of this one.’ Look, it turned out just perfect because we got to do a whole different kind of thing we wouldn’t have able to do otherwise”.

‘The Matrix’ Reboot: Warner Bros. ‘In Early Stages’ of New Take on Iconic Franchise

15 March 2017 6:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warner Bros. is plugging back into “The Matrix.” The studio is in early stages of development for a reboot of the iconic 1999 sci-fi thriller, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Avengers” scribe Zak Penn is in talks to write the treatment, with murmurings of Michael B. Jordan to potentially star. The Wachowski sisters, who wrote and directed the first film as well as its two sequels, are not on board as of now. Joel Silver, who produced the original trilogy, is reported to have approached the studio with the idea of mining the film for a new project, but is not confirmed either. Apparently, Silver and the Wachowskis have a tense relationship, and the studio would likely have to choose one or the other.

Is Valkyrie Responsible For Jane Foster's Absence In Thor: Ragnarok?

14 March 2017 7:04 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Jane Foster, as played by Natalie Portman in the first two Thor films, is an important character tied to Thor's legacy. In the films, she has served as Thor's girlfriend and his guide to Earth, aka Midgard. In the comics, Jane's role has expanded to her becoming the current Thor (it's a confusing comics deal, trust me), wielding the hammer Mjolnir as part of the current roster of Avengers. Natalie Portman, though absent from both Avengers films, played a major role in both 2011's Thor and the sequel, Thor: The Dark World. It has already been confirmed that we may not be seeing any more of Jane Foster in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now we know why.

Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the trilogy, is introducing a load of characters including Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, all of »

Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, composer Alexandre Desplat, Calypso captain Albert Falco (Vincent Heneine), nicknamed Bébert (which recalls for me the cat featured in Emmanuel Bourdieu's Louis-Ferdinand Céline), were also washed ashore.

Why Jane Foster Isn't in Thor: Ragnarok

14 March 2017 12:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last April, we reported two interesting pieces of news regarding Thor: Ragnarok, revealing that the superhero sequel had both gained and lost female characters simultaneously. That report revealed that Tessa Thompson had come aboard in an unspecified role, which was eventually confirmed as Valkyrie, while Natalie Portman, who played the Earth-bound character Jane Foster in 2011's Thor and the 2013 follow-up Thor: The Dark World, will not be back for this sequel. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had revealed in the past that most of the movie doesn't take place on Earth, which many fans assumed was the reason that Jane Foster wasn't going to be featured, but it turns out there is another reason as well.

It was also confirmed in February 2016 that another Earth-bound character, Stellen Skarsgard's Dr. Erik Selvig will not be back for Thor: Ragnarok, although he does still have one more movie left on his Marvel contract, »

Those lucky enough to be at Disney’s recent shareholders meeting were treated to a variety of sneak peeks from upcoming releases, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi and a number of Marvel’s future movies, like Thor: Ragnarok. This marks the first time anything has been shown off from the upcoming threequel, and while we recently got a first look at it via some official stills, we now have something even better: a small description of the footage that was screened.

According to those who saw it, the clip showed both Thor and the Hulk in their gladiator garb before their battle on Sakaar, but what’s perhaps most interesting is that one person in attendance claims that Hela (played by Cate Blanchett) manages to stop Mjolnir, the God of Thunder’s mighty hammer, in its tracks. »
