‘Loving Vincent’ Review: Van Gogh Biopic Made Entirely of Animated Oil Paintings

45 minutes ago

Movies may be singular visions (which mostly emerge from the foundry of teamwork), while painters typically only wrestle with themselves and with however many ideas are inside them at any given time. As labor-intensive missions go, then, “Loving Vincent” — a fictionalized inquest into the Dutch-born, France-adopted genius Vincent van Gogh as his final days are remembered by those close to him — is an appreciation of one man’s celebrated art by way of a startling approach: animating a movie out of 65,000 oil paintings, all done by hand, by 125 professional oil-painters. It’s an idea that sounds as nutty »

‘Stronger’ Review: Jake Gyllenhaal Hangs Tough in Boston Marathon Bombing Drama

46 minutes ago

How do you make an inspirational sports movie without succumbing to all the inspirational sports movie cliches? And how do you make a movie about a working-class Boston family without trotting out the accents, the brassiness, the sheer Boston-ness that has been trotted ad infinitum in other films over the years? To borrow a metaphor from Boston’s favorite team, the Red Sox, David Gordon Green’s “Stronger” sort of has two strikes against it from the start. But the drama, which premiered this weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, hangs tough and delivers a clean single or maybe more, »

Ron Howard Drops Cryptic New Han Solo Photo – First Look at the Kessel Mines?

1 hour ago

Director Ron Howard dropped a new photo from the upcoming untitled “Han Solo” movie — and a hint that makes many fans think its an image of the infamous Kessel mines. Solo boasts in the original 1977 “Star Wars” that his ship, the Millennium Falcon, “made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.” As the Star Wars wiki site Wookiepedia explains, Kessel is a prison world that was home to the galaxy’s largest Glitterstim spice-mining operation. The Kessel Run was a hyperspace route smugglers used to transport spices from the mines. It demanded great skill of pilots, because the route involved extreme changes. »

‘Rocket Man': Why Must Trump Ruin Another Classic Song? (Guest Blog)

1 hour ago

I can’t listen to The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” anymore without wincing. Ignoring Mick Jagger’s protests, Donald Trump co-opted this ode to excess and turned it into an anthem of darkness during his presidential campaign. Not since Francis Ford Coppola used Wagner’s “Song of the Valkyries” to harken the helicopter attack in “Apocalypse Now” has a piece of music carried with it a feeling of dread and impending doom. Now it’s Elton John who must be up in arms over the use of “Rocket Man” as a derivative of Trump »

Afterward, the Oswald “Penguin” Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) took over Tabitha and Barbara’s night club, The Sirens, and renamed it the Iceberg Lounge (a name that many a nerd will find familiar). We’ve obtained an exclusive clip from the “Gotham” Season 4 premiere, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. on Fox, in which the Penguin is prepping the Iceberg Lounge for its big opening and is speaking to the press inside.

The article was posted on the Unz Review, a website that describes itself as having “controversial perspectives largely excluded from the American mainstream media.” Philip Giraldi is the author of the article, “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars,” which asks if Jews should “recuse themselves when dealing with the Middle East.” Plame Wilson apologized after a barrage of criticism, saying she “messed up.” Ok folks, look, I messed up.

How Facebook Has Swiped Digital Ad Revenue From Publishers (Guest Blog)

2 hours ago

How do you boil a frog? Slowly. And in Facebook’s case, 14 months is the time it took to get the pot of water boiling, with publishers sitting inside. The branded content industry is on fire, estimated to be growing at 35 percent year over year and is a major digital growth strategy for premium publishers. The challenge is that branded content revenue growth has been higher than organic audience growth. To make up the difference, publishers heavily rely on paid distribution to deliver the reach marketers expect — and guess what? It’s mostly with Facebook. Having been so closely aligned. »

Watch ‘Agt’ Finalist Angelica Hale Hit All the Right Notes With Kelly Clarkson (Video)

2 hours ago

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Wednesday’s finale of “Agt.”) Kelly Clarkson joined Angelica Hale and Kechi for a killer performance of the pop star’s hit “Stronger” Wednesday on the “America’s Got Talent” finale. Talented 10-year-old Hale almost took this entire competition — that is, if it wasn’t for that pesky singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, your eventual Season 12 champion. Clearly, this summer run went to the kids — but the broadcaster drew a grown-up number of viewers from all age groups. Also Read: Watch 'America's Got Talent' Puppet Duel With Darci Lynne, »
