2016’s films ranked

27 April 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

04.27.17: This list is now final. While I may in the future see additional films that were released in the awards year of 2016, no more films will be added to this list. (I may add links to reviews of films listed here.)

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

Powerless Season 1 Episode 8 Review – ‘Green Furious’

14 April 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the eighth episode of Powerless

Is it being oversensitive to find many of the jokes in ‘Green Furious’ cruel or troubling? Is this what edgy feels like — being made to feel prudish watching a network comedy, without the slightest idea how to set the record straight? Shows, like The Office, were racy in their day but with employees offended by their workplace. Wayne Security has a staff that might find their behaviors are mostly acceptable.

That ‘Green Furious’ is an episode about workplace sexism, and gender bias in the media, doesn’t help. Demonstrations of offensive behavior are necessary to give characters a chance to respond but the examples are caricature, internet harps. Van mansplaining. Teddy calling women stupid for not thinking highly of his outfit. Before he commandeered Ron’s focus group to talk about his fashion sense (Ron actually works and acts like a professional »

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Debuts at No. 1 on Disc Charts

12 April 2017 4:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” the second film Disney has released in the 40-year-old sci-fi franchise, easily took the top spot on the national home video sales charts for the week ended April 9.

The film, with a domestic gross of nearly $532 million, cut short the stay at No. 1 of Warner’s “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” the fantasy spinoff of the “Harry Potter” series that had debuted in the top spot the prior week.

“Fantastic Beasts” slipped to No. 2 on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and Npd’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. Nielsen data shows “Beasts” sold just 17% as many copies its second week in stores as the new “Star Wars” film, the second-highest earner in the franchise.

“Moana,” the musical fantasy from Walt Disney Pictures, remained at No. 3 for the third consecutive week.

16mm Film’s Brilliance is Praised in Entertaining New Video Essay — Watch

11 April 2017 7:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What exactly is it about 16mm that makes cinephiles swoon? Is it the vintage charm, the soft colors, the way the light seems to drip into every inch of the frame? Over at The Royal Ocean Film Society, filmmaker and self-proclaimed hipster Andrew Saladino waxes poetic about the glories of 16mm. “The grain is much more pronounced, the color is nice and dense, and the overall product has a genuine texture to it,” he says.

But that’s not all: Using plenty of gorgeous footage from some of your favorite recent films, Saladino delves deeper into the appeal of his favorite format, which he calls the “perfect middle ground between the retro aesthetic charm” of 8mm and the more polished look of 35mm. He argues that 8mm has too much of a home movie feel, »

Quentin Tarantino’s 7 Best Scenes As a Director

27 March 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino’s films are famous for their non-linear narratives, for how they jump around in time like a skipping DVD, sometimes even willing their ways into alternate histories. And yet, despite all of their twisty plotting, his movies are increasingly defined by — and remembered for — self-contained scenes that stretch to the breaking point and seem to become iconic even as you’re first watching them. From the ingeniously knotted “Pulp Fiction” to the bifurcated “Death Proof”; from the sprawling “Kill Bill” (which is divided into 10 discrete chapters), to the snowbound “The Hateful Eight” (which limits itself to two locations and finds Tarantino challenging himself to hold a single note of suspense for hours at a time), these epic stories are shaped around chatty, taut, and indelible sequences that simmer with the potential for sudden acts of violence.

‘Wilson’ Flops for Fox Searchlight as ‘T2 Trainspotting’ Holds Strong

26 March 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend, strong holdover “T2 Trainspotting” outperformed Fox Searchlight disappointment “Wilson” at the specialty box office. Jazz documentary “I Called Him Morgan” is the bright spot among new specialty entries — at just one theater. This year, there are so many well-reviewed wide releases enjoying huge success with smart adults that the indies need a strong critical response to compete for moviegoers.

Opening

Wilson (Fox Searchlight)  Metacritic: 50; Festivals include: Sundance 2017

$330,000 in 310 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $1,065

Wilson” did not make a splash at Sundance, and even a top-flight specialized distributor like Fox Searchlight can’t transform a film with mediocre reviews into a success. It’s got a great pedigree — directed by Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”), Daniel Clowes adapted it from his own graphic novel and its includes Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern. Searchlight went with a non-platform wider initial release of 330 theaters. For all that, however, the results »

‘Passengers,’ ‘Fences’ Can’t Keep ‘Moana’ From Top Spot on Disc Charts

23 March 2017 12:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The musical fantasy “Moana,” the latest animated feature from Walt Disney Pictures, remained at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts its second week in stores, outselling three new releases that all debuted in the top 10.

Passengers,” from Sony Pictures, debuted at No. 2 the week ending March 19 on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and Npd’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The science-fiction thriller, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, and Laurence Fishburne, is about two people who wake up 90 years too early from an induced hibernation on board a spaceship enroute to a new planet. The film earned nearly $97 million in U.S. theaters.

Another new release, Paramount’s “Fences,” debuted at No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. With a domestic box office gross of just under $52 million, »

Arthouse Audit: ‘Table 19’ Leads Weak Post-Oscar Field

5 March 2017 9:48 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The week after the Oscars, most of the contenders are moving on to home viewing. It was a terrific season, but the market needs strong new entries to stem the box-office slide.

Neither of this week’s two most prominent releases — “Table 19” with a national Fox Searchlight break and “The Last Word” (Bleecker Street) — will bolster box office. It also doesn’t help that two highly-touted and well-reviewed wide release studio films, Fox’s  “Logan” and Universal’s “Get Out,” are competing for many of the same viewers.

A series of smaller niche audience releases remain. And four this weekend are either Israeli or aimed at audiences interested in Jewish topics. Led by “Women in the Balcony” (Menemsha) they could see further life over the next several weeks.

Table 19 (Fox Searchlight) – Metacritic: 38

$1,575,000 in 868 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $1,815

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney are a formidable comedy team across platforms — having reverse engineered the hit Broadway play “Oh, Hello” with their old-man Manhattanite characters from their web series. On Saturday, the pair will host Film Independent’s annual Spirit Awards, honoring the best in indie filmmaking, live from the beach in Santa Monica, California. TheWrap caught up with the pair to discuss their previous experiences in award show writers’ rooms, how they’ll one-up social media hawking late night hosts and the inevitable addressing of President Trump and the country’s political climate: Also Read: 'Jackie,' 'Moonlight, »

5 Things You Won’t See At This Year’s Independent Spirit Awards, According to Hosts Nick Kroll and John Mulaney

24 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Real-life best friends and serious funnymen Nick Kroll and John Mulaney are on deck to host the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards this Saturday afternoon on an actual beach in Santa Monica, mere hours before the Oscars unfold across town.

The Indie Spirits have frequently wrangled comedians to host their live show — last year, Kate McKinnon and Kumail Nanjiani gleefully shepherded a laugh-heavy show; in 2015, Fred Armisen and Kristen Wiig hosted the ceremony — and Kroll and Mulaney should easily join the ranks of gut-busting hosts.

23 February 2017 8:59 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Toronto International Film Festival organizers have today announced their 2017 lineup of programs and programmers, a new take on their lineup that speaks to their “renewed commitment to bold, discerning curation” and a “more tightly curated edition” of the festival.

The 2017 edition of the festival will feature 14 diverse programmes and a programming team of 22, complete with two new additions. This year, the festival will be retiring their Vanguard and City to City sections, which will reduce the overall number of films in the 2017 lineup by 20 percent. For 2017, the Tiff programs will include: Contemporary World Cinema, Discovery, Gala Presentations, Masters, Midnight Madness, Platform, Short Cuts, Special Presentations, Tiff Cinematheque, Tiff Docs, Tiff Kids, Tiff Next Wave and Wavelengths.

Toronto to reduce line-up by 20%

23 February 2017 12:05 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

City To City, Vanguard axed from 2017 edition.

With seven months to go before this year’s event, the Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff) hierarchy has unveiled a slimmed-down event while preserving its status as an awards season platform.

Both the City To City and Vanguard strands are being retired, while several programmers will not return including, as recently announced, the popular Midnight Madness master of ceremonies Colin Geddes.

Total festival selections will drop by 20% amid a tacit acknowledgement by the leadership that historical levels had a tendency to overwhelm visitors, especially industry and working press. Based on last year’s level of 296 features, a 20% cut would mean a total selection of about 237.

This year’s festival will comprise 14 programmes and a programming team of 21 that contains two new recruits: Kiva Reardon, a programmer at the Miami Film Festival who previously worked at the Doha Film Institute in Qatar, will programme Africa and the Middle East; while curator »

Spirit Awards Hosts Nick Kroll and John Mulaney on Friendship, Indie Films and Day Drinking

21 February 2017 5:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney are best friends who genuinely love working together; it’s not difficult to imagine them doing this for the next 40 years — particularly since the pair are fresh off a record-breaking run of “Oh, Hello on Broadway” in which they portray elderly gadflys Gil Kaizon (Kroll) and George St. Geegland (Mulaney).

Next up, they’ll be hosting the Film Independent Spirit Awards on Feb. 25, a perfect fit for the comedians who clearly know their indie films – Mulaney is a writer/producer on “Documentary Now!” while Kroll played lawyer Bernard S. Cohen in last year’s acclaimed “Loving.” Variety sat down with the duo to discuss their friendship, drinking at awards shows, and the state of the  business where, as Mulaney puts it, “The only true independent film is Atm security footage.”
