Annecy: ‘Lu Over The Wall,’ ‘Loving Vincent’ Take Top Honors at Annecy Animation Festival

17 June 2017 1:14 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

French and Japanese animation left little room for anyone else, outside of Vincent Van Gogh, on the roll call of award-winning features at this year’s Annecy Animation Festival. Par for the course, the top honors at the festival highlighted strong films and filmmakers, though at least one of the fest’s most talked-about features left empty-handed.

Taking home Annecy’s top Cristal award for a feature was Japanese 2D movie “Lu Over the Wall.” Masaaki Yuasa’s was something of a surprise given the film’s relative low profile in Annecy compared to some other competition contenders. Animated feature turns on a middle-school student who meets a mermaid. It marks the first animated film based on an original story from Yuasa (“Ping Pong”).

The Jury Award for a feature film went to another Japanese film, “In This Corner of the World,” directed by Sunao Katabuchi. In her review of the film, »

10 Most Wtf Things We Learned From Oliver Stone's Putin Interviews

16 June 2017 5:14 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

What's the Russian equivalent of Kool-Aid? Whatever it is, it's definitely red – and Oliver Stone has eagerly drunk it down. The trailers for The Putin Interviews, Showtime's four-part series documenting a series of conversations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Stone, would have you believe that you're going to hear some pretty hard-hitting stuff as the autocrat and the filmmaker face off, Frost-Nixon style. What we got instead was a series of softballs lobbed lovingly in the direction of one of the most powerful and dangerous men in the world. »

A History Of Violence: A new action franchise is Bourne

1 June 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With A History Of Violence, Tom Breihan picks the most important action movie of every year, starting with the genre’s birth and moving right up to whatever Vin Diesel’s doing this very minute.

The Bourne Identity (2002)

It’s one of our great action-movie traditions, right up there with the moment that 007, in the middle of the circle, turns and shoots the camera while the John Barry theme plays. Jason Bourne, harassed and hunted by the forces of the government that he once served, shakes his attackers, discredits their bosses, and does a final awesome thing. And at the final moment, John Powell’s tense, jittery score fades into the staccato synth-stabs of Moby’s “Extreme Ways”—a song that, in any non-Bourne capacity, sucks real bad. It always works. You always get that little tingle, that fuck yeah, he did it again feeling. The quality ...

16 May 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gravitas Ventures has secured U.S. as well as the foreign sales rights to territories outside North America for the documentary “Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web,” which follows the notorious internet hacker, Variety has learned exclusively.

Gravitas announced the deal on Tuesday on the eve of the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, where it will be selling international rights.

Dotcom was born Kim Schmitz in Germany and moved to New Zealand with his family in 2012. Dotcom was raided and arrested by the New Zealand police that year and has been fighting extradition to the U.S. ever since. Charges against him include copyright infringement, racketeering, conspiracy, fraud, and money laundering as he and three co-defendants could face up to 80 years in prison.

Saturday Night Live revived the beloved PBS game show Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? to solve a different mystery: The whereabouts of Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway.

The geography-based series was recreated in hilarious detail for the short sketch, even down to Rockapella's intro.

"She used to be on TV / On like every single panel / Then one day we all woke up and she was no longer there / What could have happened? / She is not on any channel," SNL host Chris Pine sang to the tune of the PBS' theme. »

Celebrate Composers in Trailer for 'Score: A Film Music Documentary'

21 April 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Music is the one thing that we all understand, that we don't understand." Gravitas Ventures has revealed a trailer for a documentary about the work of composers, titled Score: A Film Music Documentary. This played at film festivals all last year and is opening in theaters this June, which is great news because I've been waiting to see this. The doc profiles the work of composers and also examines how important music is to movies. Featuring interviews with composers including Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Trent Reznor, Rachel Portman, Junkie Xl (aka Tom Holkenborg), Brian Tyler, Thomas Newman, Bear McCreary, Moby, Garry Marshall, Jerry Goldsmith, and lots more. Hoping this goes deep into the art beyond just some chats. Here's the official trailer for Matt Schrader's Score: A Film Music Documentary, from YouTube: This celebratory documentary takes viewers inside the studios and recording sessions of Hollywood's most influential composers to »

Jimmy Kimmel Probes Sean Spicer's Inner Voice During Hitler Comment

12 April 2017 6:23 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

One day after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer compared Adolf Hitler favorably to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during a briefing, Jimmy Kimmel Live! allowed viewers to hear what must have been running through his mind in that moment.

"Oh no, did I just defend Hitler? Hitler? I think I did! Why did I even do that? Why even bring up the Holocaust? At press secretary school, the one rule was 'Never Defend Hitler!'"

Kimmel introduced the hilarious segment by explaining the now-infamous blunder, which happened to fall during Passover. »

‘Talk Show the Game Show’ Trailer: Celebs Score Points by Being Good Talk Show Guests — Watch

13 March 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Which celebrity will be win the coveted title of “Best Guest of the Night”?

That’s the question that TruTV’s “Talk Show the Game Show” asks when it premieres on April 5. When stars visit late-night talk shows to promote a project or themselves, they need to play nice to win over the host, Guy Branum (“Chelsea Lately,” “The Mindy Project”) and audience. “Talk Show the Game Show” awards them for these skills.

For example, points can be awarded for getting applause by naming a city, flashing the host, singing, using a euphemism instead of swearing and making the audience go, “Aww!”

But beware. Being a bad guest is “grounds for sanction,” whatever that means. (Can we vote for pie in the face?) Bad behaviors include excessive name dropping, white male fragility, being boring, failure »

Kong: Skull Island movie review: ape-ocalypse now

6 March 2017 7:45 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Boiled down to its bonkers essence, Skull Island is a Vietnam war movie with monsters, a retro analog vibe, and a dash of both Moby-Dick and The X-Files. I’m “biast” (pro): love a good monster movie; love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

What’s the big surprise of Kong: Skull Island? No, it’s not a secret sequel to Peter Jackson’s 2005 film King Kong; the two movies are not connected in any way. And no, in fact, this Kong is not a sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, either, though the two are both part of the shared universe that’s being called the MonsterVerse; coming soon: Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019 and Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.

Surprise! This isn’t a sequel to 2014’s Godzilla.

No, the big surprise »
