Sherlock series 4 bows out on an ultra-tense, heightened episode that unearths Holmes family secrets. Spoilers ahead…

This review contains spoilers.

In Thomas HarrisThe Silence Of The Lambs, Hannibal Lecter tells Clarice Starling “Nothing happened to me […] I happened. You can’t reduce me to a set of influences.” It’s an elegant, invincible line, one that waves away the tricks of their trades as psychiatrist and FBI agent, and paints Lecter as pure evil.

Twenty-five years later, Harris scrapped all that to explain in Hannibal Rising that Lecter is what he is because Nazis ate his sister. »

Here’s Why ‘The Jungle Book’ Deserves More Oscar Respect

13 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just as George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” James Cameron’s “Avatar,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” and Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” were cinematic groundbreakers for the ages, I believe Oscar voters should take Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” more seriously.

Favreau and screenwriter Justin Marks took Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of Mowgli and his brothers and, with help from James Cameron and Martin Scorsese’s go-to VFX master Rob Legato, created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi).

Maybe Favreau makes it look too easy. This isn’t fantasy-world “Avatar.” This is digital India. He calls up fond memories of Disney’s 1967 animated musical, weaving in a couple of songs and creating a grand set piece led by Christopher Walken as a giant ancient orangutan (gigantopithecus, »

Nintendo Switch: what we’ve learned from its big unveiling

Ryan Lambie Jan 13, 2017

The successor to the Wii U is mere weeks away. Here’s what we’ve learned from Nintendo Switch’s official unveiling...

Late last year, Nintendo ended month after month of speculation with a single video. Through the medium of happy, smiling models pressing buttons and staring at a TV screen, the Japanese giant announced the Nintendo Switch - formerly known under its codename Nx, and the successor to the likeable yet sadly obscure Wii U.

If you’ve seen The Lying Detective—and you’d better have if you’re reading this and don’t want anything spoiled for you—then you know who Sian Brooke plays in Sherlock series 4: Sherlock and Mycroft’s secret sister Eurus (official spelling tbc).

To keep that under wraps, even Brooke didn’t know what she was auditioning for at first. As she told the audience at a BFI preview screening of the series four finale, »

Do you know something? Stabbed in the gut as he is, I think James Keziah Delaney might just make it. We are, after all, only on episode two of eight.

Animated Fare Like ‘Zootopia’ and ‘Red Turtle’ Toon Into Heavy Issues

6 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The maxim that good scripts are essential to making good movies is especially true in animation.  In this medium, scripts and storyboards provide blueprints for completely invented worlds, and dialogue is recorded before the animation is done.

There’s been an Oscar category for animated feature for just 15 years; and toon screenplay nominations are relatively recent. Prior to that, animated movies typically were likelier to be recognized for song. Thus far, writer-director Andrew Stanton tops the list of Oscar-nominated animation screenwriters with four to his name (including “Toy Story,” “Wall-e,” “Finding Nemo,” and “Toy Story 3”), and he could compete again this year with the Disney/Pixar billion-dollar winner “Finding Dory.”

There’s another billion-dollar baby attracting awards buzz this season, too.  Disney’s computer-animated “Zootopia” nabbed 11 Annie Award nominations (including writing) and a Golden Globe nod for animated film.  It’s also the only animated feature among AFI’s 2016 honorees. »

Lucasfilm issues statement on 'digital' Carrie Fisher

Simon Brew Jan 14, 2017

Lucasfilm rules out digitally recreating Carrie Fisher's work in future Star Wars movies.

This should clear a few things up. Lucasfilm has posted an official statement on StarWars.com regarding the future of Leia in the Star Wars movies, and specifically rumours that it was planning to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher in future movies. The statement rules that out very clearly. It reads:

Another day, another box office milestone for Rogue One to surpass – 18 days into its theatrical run, the Gareth Edwards-directed spinoff has now officially surpassed $800 million worldwide.

In doing so, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story became the UK’s highest-grossing release of 2016 (£50.7 million), nipping the title from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at the 11th hour. Meanwhile, Variety reports that the first of Disney’s planned anthology movies is now the seventh highest-grossing global release with $801.9 million, $440.9 million of which was pulled in through the domestic market.

Indeed, such a trailblazing run cements Rogue One‘s status as the second-highest grossing movie of the year, behind only Andrew Stanton’s animated sequel Finding Dory ($486 million). Even if Edwards’ acclaimed prequel doesn’t reach the dizzying heights of Star Wars: The Force »
