The Leftovers: Season Three Ratings

16 May 2017 12:05 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Because The Leftovers TV show ratings plummeted in season two, the third and final season renewal was a happy surprise. Damon Lindelof has been adamant that he's not looking for a renewal or a spinoff. Perhaps still suffering from Lost backlash Ptsd, he's made it clear closure is his goal. So why track the ratings for season three of The Leftovers? Well, for one thing, it's fun. For another, it gives us perspective for the fate of other HBO TV shows. So, while we don't have to wonder if The Leftovers is cancelled or renewed for season four, stay tuned. In season three, The Leftovers stars Justin Theroux, Carrie Coon, Amy Brenneman, Kevin Carroll, Christopher Eccleston, Scott Glenn, Lindsay Duncan, Regina King, Jovan Adepo, Janel Moloney, Margaret Qualley, Jasmin Savoy-Brown, Liv Tyler and Chris Zylka. Based on the Tom Perrotta novel, this HBO TV series »

‘The Leftovers’ Recap: Kevin Garvey Senior Has Adventures in the Outback

30 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don’t read on unless you’ve seen the third episode of the third season of HBO’s “The Leftovers,” “Crazy Whitefella Thinking.”

The time is out of joint—O cursèd spite,

That ever I was born to set it right! — “Hamlet”

The problem with being a human being is that you can’t think nothing.

Well, you can, and we’ve all come across people whose heads appear to be empty.

But if you’re hip deep in the third season of an HBO program about mortality, loss, grief, and Wu-Tang tattoos, you are most likely a thinking, considering, wondering, doubtful person. And that’s the whole problem.

Life throws information at us, without necessarily telling us how to interpret those things or how important each bit of data should be, in the grand scheme of things. Is there a grand scheme, actually? Or is everything random? If you were looking for a specific man named »

‘The Leftovers’ Review: Episode 3 Packs an Emotional Wallop as Scott Glenn and Mimi Leder Put on One Helluva Show

30 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: The following review contains spoilers for the “The Leftovers” Season 3, Episode 3, “Crazy Whitefella Thinking.”]

Immediate Reaction:

Last week, we watched Nora (in a phenomenal performance from Carrie Coon) refuse to acknowledge any kind of sign. This week, we watched Kevin Sr. (via an incredible performance from Scott Glenn) see signs everywhere. The last two episodes of “The Leftovers” have turned the spotlight on two unbelievable talents, but they’ve also dealt with extraordinary faith on each end of the spectrum: unflinching disbelief and resolute ideology.

And guess what? Neither Nora or Senior are Ok.

Senior, convinced God has sent him on a mission to save the world, nearly died in the Australian desert — like a modern day Jesus in the wilderness. He even laid down on a cross, further emphasizing his conviction that he, not his son, is the focus of this story. Every challenge wasn’t a sign for him to turn back, return to his family, and live out his life in peace, »

Frank’s plans for a normal school life for Mary are foiled when the seven-year-old’s mathematical abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother Evelyn (Lindsay Duncan) whose plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate Frank and Mary. Octavia Spencer plays Roberta, Frank and Mary’s landlady and best friend.

The Leftovers Recap: Nothing's Gonna Stop Her Now (It's Her Life)

23 April 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“I think I’m going crazy,” Nora admitted in Sunday’s (as-usual) intriguing episode of The Leftovers. And by the time the hour was through, you might have felt like you were starting to lose it, too. For, although we got some big answers — about, for instance, what happened to Lily and what Mark-Linn Baker has been up to since “departing” — we were left with some even bigger questions. Such as?

‘The Leftovers’ Review: Episode 2 Redefines the Series as Carrie Coon Delivers an Astounding Solo Show — And Takes Control

23 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: The following review contains spoilers for the “The Leftovers” Season 3, Episode 2, “Don’t Be Ridiculous.”]

Immediate Reaction:

Another episode of “The Leftovers,” another mind-blowing last-second twist. After an episode spent entirely with Nora Durst (Carrie Coon), we took a trip to the Outback in the final minutes and watched a police officer named Kevin get drugged, tied up, and drowned by a group of women on horseback who are somehow connected to Kevin Sr. (Scott Glenn).

Now, it appears as clear as anything in “The Leftovers” can be that this was a case of mistaken identity: The women, led by the tremendously talented Lindsay Duncan, thought Australian Kevin was American Kevin (Justin Theroux). They believed he would rise from the dead, as Kevin has, but why they wanted him to briefly die and how they found out about him in the first place remain mysteries. Does Kevin Sr. know them? Did he have a copy of Matt’s book? Is this even the present day, »

Box Office Democracy: Gifted

13 April 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I feel like I never see movies like Gifted anymore.  Gifted is a smaller movie, almost completely devoid of the spectacle that snobs complain about in modern cinema.  It’s as anonymous a movie as one can get from the director of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, the star of Captain America and Octavia Spencer.  It’s funny when it wants to be, touching when it tries it’s absolute hardest, and if you’re willing to suspend an ample amount of disbelief there’s a heartwarming message to be found here.

There’s a reasonably famous book on screenwriting called Save the Cat.  It’s a guide to crafting marketable scripts, there’s good advice in there, and it sold a ton of copies.  The title refers to the need to have your main character do something early in the film to get the audience on their side; something like saving a cat. »

Is Chris Evans ‘Gifted’ Enough to Lead a Non-Marvel Film?

13 April 2017 6:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

His history of underperforming at the box office makes predicting a post-Marvel career tricky.

If the image of a bearded, flannel-clad Chris Evans playing a single uncle isn’t enough to lure throngs of women to the movies, I don’t know what will. In his latest film, Gifted, Evans plays Frank Adler, the aforementioned single uncle to a spunky six year-old gifted child, Mary (Mckenna Grace). Frank is caring for his niece after the unexpected death of his sister and he yearns for the child to have a normal and healthy life. After he sends Mary off on her first day of school, her teacher, Bonnie (Jenny Slate), notices the child’s remarkable abilities and alerts the school’s principal. Mary is offered a chance to attend a prestigious school for gifted children, which Frank promptly declines. This kicks off a custody battle between Frank and his estranged mother, Evelyn »

Gifted – Review

11 April 2017 10:17 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In just a couple of days the Summer blockbuster season will get a big jump-start (hey Spring’s not yet a month old) when those magnificent men (and women) in their flying “muscle-car” machines start spinning their wheels and defying gravity at the multiplex. As they rev their engines here’s a quiet little “heart-tugger’ about family and kids that stars a guy that usually helps usher in the big popcorn flicks as Marvel Studios’ patriotic powerhouse. Like many “swinging” singles from TV (“Family Affair”) and cinema (Raising Helen), he’s tackling unexpected parenthood after the tragic demise of the birth mother. And things get even more complicated, when (as in other recent films like Little Man Tate) the child is a genius, brainy, or as the title proclaims, Gifted.

The Leftovers Season 3 Review: A Masterful, Emotionally Rewarding Journey

10 April 2017 3:31 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Leftovers are heading toward their final destination when the series begins its third season this coming Sunday.

It's fitting that The Leftovers Season 3 begins airing on Easter Sunday, not because of the tie-in with the trailer in which Kevin Garvey declares he's not Jesus, but because the series has always been about faith.

As the series draws to a close, various characters will find themselves on intensely personal journeys that will push them to their limits and test their faith more than ever before.

For a series that began based on a book by Tom Perrotta and held very close to source material for the entirety of The Leftovers Season 1, what he and Damon Lindelof achieved for The Leftovers Season 2 was outstanding and original art.

The Leftovers Season 3 continues in the vein of Season 2, with stunning performances by the cast, incredible direction and beautiful cinematography.

'Gifted' Review: Genius-Child Drama Settles for Mediocrity, and Your Tears

10 April 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There are few words that can kill a film quicker than cute – just say to yourself, "Gosh, what a cute movie that was," and you can practically feel the inside of your mouth lined with a thin, granular film of Nutra-Sweet. It's one thing, of course, to plunk down cash to watch grumpy old coots and/or kids say the darnedest things, or bask in the cinematic equivalent of a puppy licking a baby's head. We, too, have done this. We don't judge you. Those things are a shucks-and-awww attack, »

'Colossal' and 'Gifted' Reviews: Strange, Sweet Movies That Shouldn't Be Overlooked

7 April 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There's no one film set to dominate the box office this weekend -- no latest installment in an ongoing superhero universe or live-action remake that predetermines what you'll buy tickets for (unless you're really into Smurfs) -- so might I suggest two films you may have otherwise overlooked: Colossal and Gifted. Sure, both movies star huge movie stars (Chris Evans! Anne Hathaway!) but they're not huge blockbusters. (Albeit, the former does have giant monsters attacking South Korea.)

Exclusive: Anne Hathaway on Filming 'Colossal' While Pregnant & Working With Kim Kardashian: 'She's So Sweet'

That'd be Colossal, which stars Hathaway as Gloria, an out-of-work alcoholic who, fresh off a breakup, retreats to her childhood home to dry out and try to get her life in order. There, Gloria discovers that under very specific circumstances she will manifest as a Godzilla-like monster that wreaks havoc on Seoul. As she bemoans after waking up following one of her »

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

7 April 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies, »

Review: ‘Gifted’ is Endearing, But Falls Prey to Conventions

6 April 2017 11:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Stories about prodigies are too often mired in tragic mental health issues or careers with boundless accolades and successes. Some can be done very well and others are redundant to the point of avoidance. The sub-genre of child prodigies is oftentimes even worse because it generally targets young audiences and therefore never possesses the nuance to be anything more than an upward trajectory with few pitfalls to traverse along the way. Either the child is stewarded by a selfless adult to greatness or the child is positioned to remind the adult what is great about his/her life. An authentic depiction of humanity’s familial messiness and misguided self-interest rarely appears. So Marc Webb‘s Gifted proves a welcome variation on the model despite also falling prey to its conventions.

Gifted: EW review

6 April 2017 9:28 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Spending the better part of five years caught up in the meat-grinder gears of the superhero industrial complex has to do certain things to a director. Especially a director who started out making a handcrafted, small-scale bauble like 2009’s 500 Days of Summer. But Marc Webb has emerged from his pair of Andrew Garfield Spider-Man flicks in one piece—alive to tell the tale. Unfortunately, he should have held out for a better tale to tell.

Gifted, a return to modest-budget Hallmark-shop sentimentality for the filmmaker, is a custody battle melodrama that’s as schmaltzy as all get out. Chris Evans stars as Frank, »
