Second Opinion – Spotlight (2015)

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spotlight, 2015.

Directed by Tom McCarthy.

Starring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery and Stanley Tucci.

Synopsis:

A true story documenting the events that led to The Boston Globe uncovering a history of child molestation covered up by the local Catholic Archdiocese.

Featured in the 2013 Blacklist as one of the “most liked” unmade scripts of that year, we can all breathe a sigh of relief that Josh Singer’s script finally had the chance to debut its true potential with the inclusion of an all-star cast. Tom McCarthy’s Oscar nominated film Spotlight is a classically well-made film in the sense that it demonstrates how a strongly supported narrative that drives the interest of the audience to the credits, works in unison with captivating performances that bring the real traits and mannerisms of the people they aim to portray to life, without relying on special effects, clichés or overly dramatic scenes. »

Watch: Stephen Colbert Explains Iowa Caucus in ‘Hunger Games’ Terms

4 February 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In a reprisal of his “Hungry for Power Games” spoof segment, Stephen Colbert provided commentary on post-Iowa caucus election changes Wednesday night on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

“Being a candidate can’t be a picnic,” said Colbert. “It’s so cutthroat and heartless. It’s like the ‘Hunger Games.’ No, it’s more than that. It’s the ‘Hungry for Power Games.'”

Dressed as “Hunger Games'” host Caesar Flickerman (played in the films by Stanley Tucci) with champagne in hand, Colbert paid tribute to Rand Paul, Martin O’Malley and Mike Huckabee —  all three of whom announced the end of their presidential campaigns following the results of the Iowa caucus.

“There has been a bloodbath in Iowa’s cornucopia, an unprecedented harvest of brave tributes,” Colbert announced before acknowledging each “fallen” candidate. “Let us now bid farewell to those who have fallen, for the rest your time »

SAG Award Bounce Puts Spotlight on ‘Spotlight’

2 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After Adam McKay’s housing crisis dramedy “The Big Short” claimed this year’s Producers Guild prize Jan. 23, Team “Spotlight” needed to bounce back. It did just that at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, as the film’s tight-knit ensemble (featuring Billy Crudup, Brian d’Arcy James, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Liev Schreiber, John Slattery and Stanley Tucci) claimed the award for outstanding cast in a motion picture.

Resiliency has been a strength for Tom McCarthy’s journalism drama. The film rounded out 2015 by dominating the critics awards circuit, yet came up short among the craft guilds at the start of the new year. After landing just three mentions from the British Academy (which notably passed over McCarthy in the directing field), it lost the best picture, drama Golden Globe to “The Revenant.” But the Directors Guild breathed new life into the journalism drama a few days later, »

“Spotlight” takes the top prize from SAG to stay alive in the Oscar race

1 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG, for those who don’t know) did their best provide both questions and answers in regards to the Oscar race. On the one hand, much of what we suspected to the the Academy’s likely favorites remains as such, but on the other…there are certainly some potential upsets brewing. SAG was just one of the precursors over the weekend, as the Art Directors Guild and Ace Eddie announced their winners as well, which you can see below, but the SAG victors are what we’ll be focusing on today. So, let’s chat about that guild’s results! SAG managed to both clear up and confuse on Saturday. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson wrapped up their Oscar wins in Lead Acting categories, while Alicia Vikander likely became an unbeatable frontrunner as well in Best Supporting Actress. As for Best Supporting Actor, »

‘Spotlight,’ Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson Lead 2016 SAG Award Winners

30 January 2016 7:22 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In naming Spotlight one of the best ensembles of 2016, we said, “Tom McCarthy’s procedural moves with the precision of a fine timepiece. Rarely does one find a film where all is tune, from the pacing, writing, direction and acting. Highlighting the heroic work of the Boston Globe’s Spotlight team, the group is headed by Robby Robinson (Michael Keaton) who risks life long friendships to get the story right. His team includes Mike Rezendes (played by a compulsive Mark Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (Rachel McAdams) and Matt Caroll (Brian d’Arcy James). Encouraged by a Boston outsider, editor Marty Baron (Live Schreiber), the team undertakes a long-term investigation of abuses in the Catholic Church. In the mix are the lawyers on both sides, played by Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup. Rightfully overshadowing that other journalism docudrama, James Vanderbilt’s incompetent Truth, the difference here amongst many things is perhaps access: »

Movie Review – Spotlight (2015)

30 January 2016 12:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spotlight, 2015.

Directed by Tom McCarthy

Starring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schrieber, John Slattery, Brian d’Arcy James, Billy Crudup and Stanley Tucci.

Synopsis:

The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.

Anyone who has been watching Netflix’s documentary series Making A Murderer will attest just how angry the events of the show have made its viewers feel. Not in terms of its quality, but for almost everything single moment that just baffles the senses as you wonder just how on earth such anger-inducing “events” were allowed to happen band continue to happen in the face of many shouts to the contrary. Todd McCarthy’s Spotlight is the 2015/6 cinematic equivalent of the aforementioned TV show, but perhaps it’s much more infuriating due to the »

Spotlight review

Superb performances are at the heart of one of the Oscar frontrunners, Spotlight. Here's our review...

Films sometimes have odd ways of depicting how journalism works, either overestimating the glamour or underestimating the actual effort, depending on whether the representation is positive or negative. In real life, good journalists don't make themselves the story, and so it goes in Spotlight.

You might not expect a more full and frank procedural approach from a film that's been garlanded with awards nominations for the last few months, but you might expect it of director Tom McCarthy, who previously gave us Win Win and The Station Agent. For better or worse, his latest truly has no frills, instead zeroing in on the nitty-gritty of how a major true story was reported.

Live action fairytale movies: UK release date calendar

When to expect all the upcoming live action fairytale movies, including Dumbo, Beauty And The Beast and two Jungle Books…

You’ve probably noticed the influx of live action fairytales gracing cinemas in recent years. This isn’t about to stop any time soon, since re-spinning a recognisable fantastical yarn with real people instead of animated ones always makes big money for the studio behind it.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)

Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »
