Spokane 2017 Review: Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse

13 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The closing film of the Spokane International Film Festival (SpIFF) is traditionally an uplifting affair that celebrates the creative spirit, hosted in the hallowed 102-year old Bing Crosby (neé Clemmer) Theater. This year’s selection - the charming, snide, hilarious Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse - was no exception!    Perhaps the highest praise I can bestow upon this film is to say that afterwards, I found myself reminiscing about Shaun Of The Dead. Now, it doesn’t quite reach the rarified atmosphere of Shaun’s supreme heights, but it’s certainly soaring on the same synergy of dry humor, warm heart, and mining of the mirthfully mundane during otherwise preposterous circumstances.    The film stars and was directed and written by the titular and actual couple, Gabriel...

16 Songs from the Past Century of Protest Music

10 February 2017 3:20 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Using music as a tool of protest isn’t anything new. But with the current political climate, we have a sneaking suspicion that music in the U.S. is about to get ever-so-slightly more angry. Here are the most important ones from the genre’s history in America.

“I Didn’t Raise My Boy to Be a Soldier” (1915)

One of the first anti-war pop songs, this song was a hit in 1915, selling 650,000 copies. It also drew scorn from a number of people, including Theodore Roosevelt, who said, “Foolish people who applaud a song entitled ‘I Didn’t Raise My Boy »

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Not only is La La Land breaking records as the most-nominated musical in Oscar history but that haul of 14 nominations for its lead pair, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Musicals don’t often get that much love from the Academy Awards and getting recognition in both the best actor and best actress categories is even rarer. Let’s take a look back at the history of this happening and see how Stone and Gosling’s nominations — and potential wins — are important.

Taking a look at this year’s nominations, Stone is favored to win more than Gosling is for their work in the Damien Chazelle-directed musical. Gosling is up against Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge), Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic), and Denzel Washington (Fences) — with the latter expected to reign supreme. »

Miguel Ferrer obituary

23 January 2017 5:38 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

American actor and voiceover artist who enjoyed a breakthrough role in the 1987 film RoboCop and played the FBI forensic expert Albert Rosenfield in Twin Peaks

Miguel Ferrer, who has died aged 61 after suffering from throat cancer, was an engaging character actor adept at portraying over-the-top, obsessive villains, often flamboyantly likable, as typified by his breakthrough film role in RoboCop (1987), as Bob Morton, the coke-snorting designer of the automated policeman. He was even better cast as a hero’s abrasive, acerbic and difficult boss or colleague, as in the hit television show Twin Peaks, with Ferrer as the FBI forensic expert Albert Rosenfield.

Although he found success as a jobbing actor and voice talent, Ferrer started his career in music. He was born in Santa Monica, California, into Hollywood royalty. His father, José Ferrer, won the best-actor Oscar in 1951 for Cyrano de Bergerac; his mother was Rosemary Clooney, one of America »

ComicMix Six: Box Office Democracy’s Top Six Movies of 2016

3 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

6. Captain America: Civil War – There are so many fantastic moments in Civil War.  The easy one is the fight at the airport where we finally get that big super hero battle we’ve seen in a thousand different comic books (and acted out with action figures at least that many times) put on the silver screen in all its glory.  The three-way fight at the end might be even better because it’s a crisp action beat full of emotion that is rare anywhere these days, and is honestly pretty uncommon even in print.  It’s not a perfect movie, but it might be the perfect application of fan service.  Every other Marvel movie has to either top this in terms of fan service (and they honestly probably shouldn’t try) or do something new and exciting.  The gauntlet has been thrown down (this is not an Infinity Gauntlet pun »
