There Are 41 Songs (& Vids). There Is Only 1 Cher.

22 December 2010 5:08 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

41 Songs were declared eligible for Oscar's least cinematically relevant prize a short while ago. Wheeee!

We only didn't share them yesterday because every single damn thing happens in the same week. I'd be more excited about this category if recent years hadn't seen the big show trending away from original performers singing their original songs. If I can't see Cher doing her Burlesque number(s) on Oscar night, someone is going down.

The Academy will choose up to 5 of these songs as nominees, depending on how their voting goes. I've included video accompaniment when available - listen (and watch up).

 Which are you rooting for?

Please god no. No more honors for this eyesore movie.

"Alice" from Alice in Wonderland "Forever One Love" from Black Tulip "Freedom Song" from Black Tulip

 oooh, now this is more like it. Sadly, it's only a partial video.

"Welcome to Burlesque" from Burlesque

41 Contenders Compete to be Nominated for Best Original Song

15 December 2010 3:19 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

We are only two months away from the Oscars, and members of the Academy are hard at work trying to decide who best deserves one of those five nomination slots. 

Today, they released their shortlist for Best Original Song which tops out at an impressive 41 songs.

But we can already make an educated guess as to which five will be competition on Oscar night based on who the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards favored, and none of them involve Justin Bieber or Debbie Gibson.

“I See the Light” from “Tangled” earned a Best Song nod from both, as did “If I Rise” from “127 Hours” and “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” from “Burlesque.” Randy Newman’s “We Belong Together” from “Toy Story 3″ also seems a lock, since all of Newman’s songs for Disney/Pixar have scored nominations over the years.

Music in the movies: Elliot Goldenthal

13 December 2010 9:20 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The latest Music in the Movies column celebrates the work of Elliot Goldenthal, whose compositions have graced such films as Alien 3, Interview With The Vampire and Heat

Like previous Music in the Movies subject, Elmer Bernstein, Elliot Goldenthal was a student of the legendary Aaron Copland. Whilst Goldenthal isn't the most prolific of film composers, his distinct sound has accompanied some great films over the years and earned him three Oscar nominations and one win. A reason why Goldenthal hasn't got the number of credits his contemporaries boast? He often alternates between film scoring and stage productions.

I haven't included his Oscar winning score for Frida in the article, as I'm not a huge fan of it and there are other titles below that fit better with the rest of the series.

So, here are what I consider to be the most notable scores of Goldenthal's career:

The Next Three Days

20 November 2010 10:42 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Next Three Days

Directed by: Paul Haggis

Cast: Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson

Running Time:

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: November 19, 2010

Read Bayer’s Tsr 9/10 of The Next Three Days

Plot: After his wife (Banks) is sent to prison for a murder she may not have committed, a Pittsburgh man (Crowe) devises a plan to break her out.

Who’S It For? This one might work for those who didn’t see the lawyer-driven Conviction, but are still compelled by a movie about getting a loved one out of jail one way or the other.

Expectations: The few fleeting commercials I had seen made it look like a bit of an action movie, which was interesting considering that writer/director Paul Haggis has done writing work of his own on the latest two James Bond movies.

Scorecard (0-10)

Actors:

Russell Crowe as John Brennan: It’s hard not to like this character. »

The Next Three Days

19 November 2010 6:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Next Three Days

Directed by: Paul Haggis

Cast: Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Olivia Wilde

Running Time: 2 hrs 2 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: November 19, 2010

Plot: John (Crowe) and Laura (Banks) are a married couple whose life is nearly destroyed when Laura is accused of murder. John will do anything to get her out.

Who’S It For? It’s a slow-building thriller. You have to have some patience and also believe that Crowe isn’t too much of a star to play an everyman.

Expectations: Almost zero. I knew next to nothing about this film. Thriller, Russell Crowe … that’s it. That’s the list.

Scorecard (0-10)

Actors:

Russell Crowe as John Brennan: This is most definitely a “Russell Crowe film” and here’s the amazing thing: he can still play a regular guy. That’s not true with other actors. It’s very hard to put yourself in »

Waste Land

29 October 2010 3:55 PM, PDT | Filmology | See recent Filmology news »

Summary:  One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. Go see it before it's too late.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I sat down in that small screening room for Lucy Walker's exquisite new documentary Waste Land. Well it asserted itself almost immediately as a film to be reckoned with. From the film's haunting score (provided by Moby) to Walker's excellent camera work to Vik's magnetic personality and artistic genius to the heartbreaking stories of the most likable and charming documentary subjects I can remember, Waste Land is a masterpiece.

View The Trailer For A Stunning Documentary Set In “Waste Land”

25 October 2010 3:16 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Opening in New York on the 29th of October, Waste Land is a documentary set in the Jardim Gramacho, what is also known to many as the largest trash site in the world. The documentary, which was screened last week at the BFI London Film Festival, follows the journey of New York artist, Vik Muniz, as he travels from his home in Brooklyn to the garbage dump on the outskirts of Rio De Janeiro. There, he meets an amazing group of people called “catadores”, or self-designated recyclable materials pickers, who he tries to help and connect with through the power of art. Directed by Lucy Walker, this astonishing film has been wowing the crowds on the festival circuit, and winning a whole bunch of snazzy awards. Set to an inspired soundtrack created by Moby, this film documents the lives of these incredible people and their emotionally compelling stories.

September Capsule Reviews

11 October 2010 10:30 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Every month there's a slew of movies released directly to DVD, and rather than let them pass harmlessly under the radar, we're compiling them here in easy to digest capsule reviews. If you're looking for a nice flick to get you through the weekend, then this is the list for you. So sit back, and take a gander at some of the notable independent and direct-to-dvd releases of September.

September 7th

Doc West

Doc West is a made-for-tv Western with one immediate advantage over many of the cheap dollar store direct-to-dvd western flicks that come out nowadays: it has enough of a budget to keep things consistent. There are no blatant anachronisms or costume defects that take you out of the feature with a sudden, “Is that guy wearing a Phillies shirt under his vest?” The story is simple and sees Doc West in pursuit of some bandits who stole his money, »

Suck DVD Review

28 September 2010 12:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Suck hits DVD and blu-ray on September 28th.

It takes a brave writer to name their movie Suck - you're pretty much daring reviewers to come up with a clever spin on why your movie does just that. It's good for writer/director/star Rob Stefaniuk that his sophomore effort behind the camera is pretty damned good. A combination of a smart cast, some moments of visual inventiveness, and a clever script save the movie from the curse of its title.

A small confession: I was actually prepared to dislike the movie in its opening minutes, thanks to some terrible vampire makeup and worse music but I got over it.

Suck follows a struggling Canadian band called The Winners after their bassist, Jennifer (Jessica Paré), has a fateful encounter with a 300-year-old vampire named Queeny. The band's hapless lead, Joey (Stefaniuk) knows something's off with his ex-girlfriend and current bandmate »

Will Oldham, Rufus Wainwright, and Yoko Ono Get Deep "In the Woods"

23 September 2010 2:27 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

No one seems to know much about this film "In the Woods," sometimes referred to as "Itw Pathway" -- other than that in it, a bunch of people with varying degrees of fame trip out in the woods. Indeed the cast which includes Terrence Howard, Will Oldham, Rufus Wainwright, Alan Cumming, and Debra Winger were not told anything before they agreed to the project.

Jennifer Elster, a former fashion stylist turned writer-director brought in Yoko Ono and Rufus Wainwright to score the film so you know shits going to get weird. The message from the filmmakers so far is "Each person agreed to walk into the unknown. The journey will unfold over time. The messages will become clear to the informed viewer as an episodic film experience is unleashed. The delivery will be as unconventional as the experience itself."

The rest of the long, strange cast includes: Moby, Rosie Perez, »

New Poster for Rob Stefaniuk’s ‘Suck’

3 September 2010 2:00 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Suck is the story of a failing and ageing rock band called The Winners who are desperate to make it to the top. During a road trip, their boring everyday image changes when their bass player Jennifer (Jessica Paré) disappears one night with a hip vampire called Queeny who changes the band forever. Jessica returns with a new sexually charged charisma that drives audiences wild. One by one the band succumbs to vampirism and their new image propels them to stardom.

Thanks to the guys at Imp Awards we have our first look at the brand new one-sheet for Suck, which is written by and stars Rob Stefaniuk and features cameos from rock icons such as Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop, along with appearances from Moby, Henry Rollins, and British screen legend Malcolm McDowell.

Fantasia 2010: Days 15-18

26 July 2010 2:48 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The final Friday of Fantasia 2010 brought us one of the highlights of this year’s festival: director Christopher (Creep) Smith’s necromancer plague drama Black Death. Playing as the perfect accompaniment to Ken Russell’s The Devils, Black Death is a very subdued and naturalistic take on pestilence and witchcraft.

The film uses the backdrop of medieval superstition as a metaphor for modern-day religious propaganda and state sponsored fundamentalism. With influences as far ranging as In the Name of the Rose, Wicker Man, and Witchfinder General, it turned out to be a crowd pleasing and blessedly subtle take on an oft covered theme that stands out as one of the best of the sub-genre. Check out McCannibal’s Black Death review here.

Spotlight: Between Death And The Devil

Recent times and crimes have seen extraordinary levels of disillusionment with organized religion, particularly with the Catholic Church, and genre cinema has mirrored this anger with startling impact. In the face of this, we’ve put together this troubling spotlight focused on the abuse of faith, the horrors of ideology and the corruption of Godliness. Several of these films will absolutely stagger you.
