Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Life, Animated In St. Louis

11 hours ago

From Academy Award® winning director Roger Ross Williams, Life, Animated is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. This emotional coming-of-age story follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence.

The subject of his father Ron Suskind’s New York Times bestseller, Owen was a thriving three year old who suddenly and inexplicably went silent – and for years after remained unable to connect with other people or to convey his thoughts, feelings or desires. Over time, through repeated viewings of Disney classics like The Little Mermaid and The Lion King, Owen found useful tools to help him to understand complex social cues and to re-connect with the world around him.

Director/ writer/ actor Gary Marshall dies at age 81

22 hours ago

On Tuesday July 19, Hollywood lost a giant in the world of comedy with the passing of beloved director/writer/producer/actor Gary Marshall at the age of 81. While most of the news outlets focused in on his considerable work in television (he practically owned Tuesday nights in the 1970’s with his “Happy Days” empire), this site would like to salute Mr. Marshall’s work on both sides of the camera.

After impressive writing credits on many of the classic sitcoms of the 1960’s, it was inevitable that the movie studios would tap him to contribute to several screenplays. The first was produced in 1968, a marriage comedy starring James Garner and Debbie Reynolds, How Sweet It Is. A youth-oriented romantic comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset, The Grasshopper, was released in 1970. TV triumphs quickly followed, so Marshall’s movie career was put on hold for more than a dozen years. 1982 was the year »

Captain Fantastic – Review

22 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT

Credit: Erik Simkins / Bleecker Street

Captain Fantastic may sound like the title of comic book movie but this warm, thoughtful film centers on a different kind of hero, a father who has devoted his life to his children. He is indeed a fantastic father, even if his ideas about how to raise his kids is far out of the mainstream, something which comes to the fore when his family faces a life-altering crisis. Captain Fantastic is an emotionally moving film that mixes drama and a bit of humor in a touching story of an unconventional family who have to work through their grief to find a new way to interact with conventional society.

Viggo Mortensen turns in a wonderful performance as that father, Ben Cash. Ben and his wife Leslie (Trin Miller) chose to leave prosperous conventional lives behind to raise their six children in a counter-culture utopia off the grid – way off the grid. »

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie – Review

22 July 2016 6:06 AM, PDT

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie reunites fashionista-wannabee gal pals Edina Monsoon (Jennifer Saunders) and Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) from the 1990s hit British TV comedy for more of their hard partying, party-crashing, champagne-swilling inappropriate shenanigans.

First off: if you are not already a fan steeped in the old British TV show Absolutely Fabulous but think Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie might give you a taste of what all the fuss was about, forget it – this film is not for you. Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is strictly for fans, and unlike some movie adaptions, it does not give the uninitiated even much thought. It is possible to watch the whole film with nary a chuckle, having the nagging feeling there are plenty of in-jokes there soaring over your head. You would be right.

If you are a committed Ab Fab fan, the movie version may well be hilarious. At the promotional screening, there »

Star Trek Beyond – Review

21 July 2016 11:01 PM, PDT

The multiplex has been all about a certain science-fiction feature film franchise of late. I’m speaking of all the hoopla last December with the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (and it’s started up again for the stand alone flick Rogue One: A Star Wars Story). And the year before that, 2014, the big buzz was about the new planet-hoppin’ series from Marvel Studios, Guardians Of The Galaxy (a sequel touches down next May). Somehow, the grand-daddy (or maybe the older uncle) has been neglected. Star Trek has been drifting in the cinema cosmos for over three years. In 2009 Paramount Studios recruited J.J. Abrams to reboot the films with younger versions of the characters from the original TV show (and first seven features). Four years later they were back, with Abrams directing once more, for Star Trek: Into Darkness. Soon after its release, he was whisked into that galaxy far, »

Hunt For The Wilderpeople – Review

21 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT

Don’t put away that passport! And stop unpacking! After taking a cinematic road trip to New Zealand last week for the superb documentary Tickled, we’re back in that lush locale once more. Seems there’s more to that place than elves and hobbits. While David Farrier and friends lived in the city, the action in this fiction flick takes place out in the wild, also known as the “bush”. Our guide/director is the talented film-making actor Taika Waititi. You might recall that gem he released to theatres two years ago, the clever, hilarious “mockumentary” What We Do In The Shadows, about a quartet of vampires sharing a big New Zealand estate (it’s streaming via several services, so watch it after you see this). Now it looks like Mr. Waititi has been “called up to the majors”. Those savvy talent scouts at Marvel Studios have recruited him »

Equals – Review

21 July 2016 4:52 PM, PDT

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Equals  is Equilibrium without guns. That’s not just to call a comparison to the worlds that the films create, but also to show how Equals elevates itself using a very similar setting. Both take place in societies where emotions are demonized, and the inhabitants must keep from feeling anything in the attempt to fit in. The divergence is that while Equilibrium allows its awesome action to take over the plot, Equals  doesn’t have guns, meaning that it cannot devolve into just another generic future action movie by the end. Instead, it turns into a wrenching love story, that while heavy-handed and melodramatic, works to a more satisfying degree.

Nicholas Hoult plays Silas, a man who suddenly starts to feel. He starts to notice Nia, (Kristen Stewart) who is another person that is starting to feel. Together, they find their way through these new feelings, »

Ice Age Collision Course – Review

21 July 2016 4:03 PM, PDT

The Ice Age films are generally good at being “good enough”, but the fifth installment, Ice Age Collision Course barely rises to that low bar. The filmmakers behind this franchise have proven to be much better at convincing parents to bring their kids to see their movies than they are at actually making these movies any good.

The lazy, sit-commy side of Ice Age Collision Course’s story finds Manny the wooly mammoth (voiced by Ray Romano), forgetting his wedding anniversary with Ellie (a barely-there Queen Latifah) and disapproving of his daughter Peaches’s (Keke Palmer) fiancé (the admittedly obnoxious) Julian (Adam DeVine). The more interesting, Armeggedon-inspired action side finds that half rat/half squirrel Scrat’s pursuit of his acorn has taken him to other planets which results in a meteor hurtling destructively towards earth and Buck the weasel’s (Simon Pegg) attempts to stop it.

Ice Age Collision Course is harmless, »

Lights Out – Review

21 July 2016 3:00 PM, PDT

Anything could be lurking in the darkness. Imagining what could be hiding in the shadows opens a door to all sorts of nightmarish visuals. Horror films frequently fall back on characters nervously peering into the dark unknown, while audiences grip the armrests with sweaty palms. It’s an effective horror tool that will continue on film after film long after the lights turn back on in the theater.

Lights Out builds an entire film around the threat of sleeping without a nightlight. It’s a simple enough idea that could then be taken in many directions. David Sandberg builds upon his own 2 and a half minute short film in such a way that the wealth of possibilities hiding in the darkness has now become rather limited. In the process of creating a more personal and dramatic story, he has actually restricted the depth of what the darkness can hold.

Growing up, »
