Box Office Democracy: “The Magnificent Seven”

27 September 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

If The Magnificent Seven had a title like Seven Cool Cowboys, I would be here writing a rave review. This remake is a good, fun western that might employ a lot of well-worn tropes, but has a good enough cast and a light enough tone to make it work quite well. I had a great time watching it almost the entire time I was in the theater. The problem comes from using the name of an older movie, a different movie, a better movie, and most importantly a movie with a point of view entirely ignored for this iteration. The Magnificent Seven is a fine movie but it’s an awful take on the original and it needs to carry that weight.

The Magnificent Seven hits all of the basic bits of the original film. Outlaws take over a town, townsfolk enlist a ragtag band of assorted cowboys and ne »

26 September 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Donald Trump: By Roasting Him, We May Have Validated Him

26 September 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Tonight, America will be riveted by the first U.S. Presidential debate of 2016. In a campaign season that has contained all the absurd drama of reality TV, the 56-year-old television tradition will provide voters the clearest and most sober presentation of the candidates and their views. It has tremendous potential to shape the choices we make November 8.

Hilary Clinton is the more experienced orator, but our perception of Donald Trump as a candidate could be shaped by another television institution in which he was on stage while facing opponents who cast aspersions upon him: The Roast of Donald Trump.

First popularized by Dean Martin in the 1970s, the celebrity roast mocks iconic performers and was initially designed as TV’s way of saying: We love you enough to put you through this. Now an annual Comedy Central tradition, in 2011 its subject was a businessman and reality star who is now »

It was a night of firsts and sweeps.

Find out who won their first Emmys and what shows swept the awards, because we have every single winner from all three Emmy ceremonies below!

Jimmy Kimmel did an awesome job hosting, and even managed to point out all of the annoying gluten free stars in the audience after passing out Pb&J sandwiches his mom made. And he hoped nobody was allergic to nuts! 

Congrats to all the winners. How many surprised you by the way things turned out? FX proved that there may be too much television to choose from, but what they're putting out there is of the great variety.

HBO offered up repeats with Game of Thrones and Veep, Keeping The Americans from a Best Drama win, but Rami Malek got the best actor win, even if we were also cheering heartily for Matthew Rhys. And our girl »

‘Sing’ review [Tiff ’16]

15 September 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sing review: Garth Jennings makes his feature animation debut with this utterly charming and entertaining feature from the studio who brought us Minions.

Sing review by Paul Heath, Tiff ’16.

Garth Jennings, the British director whose films Son Of Rambow and The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy delighted upon release, turns to animation with this enjoyable feature from the Minions people, Illumination Entertainment, with the musical effort Sing.

A film where you can see/ hear Matthew McConaughey voicing a theatre-owning koala bear named Buster Moon, singing ditties like Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepson will always have me stood first in line. This is what you get with the quirky, well-told animated feature from former music video director Jennings, a film technically could shares a world with tow of the other big animated movies of the year so far, Zootropolis and The Secret Life Of Pets. It’s talking »

Sneak Peek at Fall’s Big-Budget Animated Oscar Pack

14 September 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the studios, 2016 has mostly been about the year of the animal, highlighted by Disney’s billion-dollar “Zootopia” and Pixar’s “Finding Dory” (the new all-time animation box office leader).

However, the year culminates with another potentially strong Disney Oscar contender, “Moana” (November 23), along with two musicals: Illumination’s “Sing” (December 21), which played to cheering crowds this week at the Toronto Film Festival, and DreamWorks’ “Trolls” (Nov. 4). Warner Bros., meanwhile, offers the buddy comedy, “Storks” (September 23), which has attracted good world of mouth for its humor.

Disney explores new territory with the Polynesian-themed “Moana,” the first foray into CG for directors John Musker and Ron Clements (“The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid”), who push the legacy in a new direction with contemporary appeal.

The free-spirited, teenage Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) possesses strong navigational skills and is determined to sail out on a dangerous mission to save her island and eradicate its isolation. »

Tiff Movie Review: Sing

13 September 2016 6:32 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Illumination Entertainment’s latest comedy, Sing, had a crowd-pleasing premiere at Tiff this week. The film showcases the studio’s usual strength in the animation department to go with a surprisingly mature story for a studio still struggling to find its footing in the narrative-telling department.

Much like this summer’s mediocre The Secret Life of Pets, Illumination’s Sing is set in a world of talking and varied animals with the quirky personalities of the voice talent that brings them to life. But unlike Pets, Sing is a much more interesting story of everyday animals from all walks of life trying to explore their talents.

We start with the somewhat slippery Buster Moon, an entrepreneurial Koala voiced by Matthew McConaughey, who is facing the foreclosure of his father’s beloved theater but has a plan to save it. He creates a singing competition that is sure to fill up »
