Daniel Day-Lewis and Michael Fassbender: Why They Hold the Highest Metacritic Actor Scores

28 April 2017 9:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nobody picks movies like Daniel Day-Lewis. The three-time Oscar winner has never acted in a film earning a negative aggregate score on Metacritic, giving him an average individual score of 73, higher than any other actor today. Day-Lewis’s highest rated films on the site are “There Will Be Blood” (92) and “Lincoln” (86). Second on the list of highest average scores is Michael Fassbender, at 69, and John C. Reilly, at 66.

How are these scores calculated? A recent study by Vox analyzed Metacritic data to rate actors based on the reviews of their films. (Metacritic scores films from 0-100, with higher scores indicating better overall reviews. To earn a “generally favorable” rating, films must have an average score of 61 or greater, while “universal acclaim” requires a score of 81 or higher).

Vox noted that the method it used for its study is far from a perfect science, »

‘Sandy Wexler’ Review

18 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider | Written by Adam Sandler, Dan Bulla, Tim Herlihy, Paul Sado | Directed by Steve Brill

Sandy Wexler is the latest Netflix original film from comedian/actor Adam Sandler – part of his four picture deal with the streaming service – and tells the story of the titular character: a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s who diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.

If there’s one thing I can count on from my fellow movie bloggers, it’s their intense disdain for the films of Adam Sandler; in particular those made as part of Sandler’s Netflix deal. »

Film Review: Adam Sandler’s ‘Sandy Wexler’

15 April 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Depending on whether you love or hate Adam Sandler movies, you can hold old-school talent manager Sandy Wernick at least partly accountable for having encouraged his career. Wernick signed Sandler at age 22, three years before “Saturday Night Live” snatched up the young comedian and made him a star, and Sandler has remained loyal ever since — so much so that he’s built his latest sketch-stretched-far-past-the-breaking-point, “Sandy Wexler,” as an in-joke homage to his longtime manager.

Sandler repays those years of service not with a big sloppy kiss of a movie, but rather a feature-length roast (though the word “sloppy” still applies) — one that amplifies the man’s nasal voice and off-putting fake laugh into an elaborate caricature of a hopelessly pathetic bottom-feeder. The roast approach isn’t a bad way to go per se, except that somewhere along the way, this project’s too-many-cooks left out the most important ingredient: »

‘Sandy Wexler’ Review: Adam Sandler’s Newest Netflix Comedy Helps Explain Why He Keeps Making So Many Bad Movies

14 April 2017 11:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The “Lawrence of Arabia” of half-assed Adam Sandler comedies, “Sandy Wexler” is an epic period piece that spans 10 years and 131 minutes of mildly amusing mediocrity before climaxing with a Rob Schneider cameo where he plays a Middle Eastern man in full brownface — it’s awful, and yet it’s almost objectively Sandler’s best movie since “Funny People.”

Of course, quality has never been a very useful metric for measuring Sandler’s work, and that’s especially true now that we’re knee-deep in an eight-picture Netflix deal which guarantees that, for the foreseeable future, we can expect new Sandler films to arrive with all the predictably of seasonal allergies. Once upon a time, he was a cottage industry — now, he’s an assembly line.

But if “Sandy Wexler” is only the slightest bit funnier than “The Do-Over” or “The Ridiculous Six,” the third of Sandler’s streaming offerings is »

Adam Sandler Is Sandy Wexler In Bizarre First Trailer For Netflix Dramedy

16 February 2017 1:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following up on The Ridiculous Six and wildly over-the-top actioner The Do-Over, Adam Sandler is all set to execute stage three of his four-picture deal with Netflix in the form of Sandy Wexler.

It’ll premiere on April 14th, and in order to generate some semblance of excitement, the online streamer has today rolled out the really rather bizarre first trailer. Unlike The Ridiculous Six (Western) and The Do-Over (action/comedy), Sandy Wexler doesn’t quite know which genre it belongs to. Opening with a shot of Sandler as the bumbling talent manager, the footage above ranges from hammy melodrama to oddball comedy all in the space of two minutes, with cameos from the likes of Chris Rock to Conan O’Brien thrown in for good measure. Can it find an audience in two months’ time? It’s worth remembering that The Do-Over found its way into Netflix’s top »

The ‘90s was the decade of Bill Clinton, the Macarena, dial-up internet… and Sandy Wexler. One thing is for sure – Hollywood wasn’t ready for a talent manager like him.

Also starring Kevin James (True Memoirs of An International Assassin), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Lamorne Morris (New Girl), Nick Swardson (The Do-Over), Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers and Arsenio Hall; Sandy Wexler is directed by Steve Brill (The Do-Over) from a script by Sandler himself. »

13 February 2017 11:12 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

To put it bluntly, Elle King was on another level at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

On Monday, the singer revealed she was “accidentally high Af” during music’s biggest night.

Note to self, don’t eat a bunch of pot muffins before the Grammys red carpet,” King, 27, wrote on Instagram along with a screenshot of herself during a red carpet interview.

At the star-studded soireé, King, who attended Sunday’s show with country star Dierks Bentley, exhibited flower power with her Teuta Matoshi gown and a Lirika Matoshi floral crown, which she now regrets choosing.
