The Best of the First Half of 2017

30 June 2017 8:49 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

As I write every year around this point, time just flies, doesn’t it? We’re now about to hit July and officially enter into the second half of the year. That of course means one thing…it’s time for my mid year look at the best of the first half! As of the writing of this piece, I’ve seen about 130 movies so far in 2017, which is slightly less than normal for me. Still, it’s plenty and doesn’t really omit any huge early year releases. There are some upcoming July releases I’ve been unable to see so far, like A Ghost Story and Landline, but by and large, I’ve hit everything that needed to be hit in order to put together a decent list like the one you’re about to see. Below you’ll see my rankings for everything that I’ve seen since the year began. »

One, Two, Three

26 May 2017 5:03 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Some like their comedy hot and some like it cold. Billy Wilder opted to step on the joke accelerator to see what top speed looked like. One of the most finely tuned comedies ever made, this political satire crams five hours’ worth of wit and sight gags into 115 minutes. The retirement-age James Cagney practically blows a fuse rattling through Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond’s high-pressure speeches, without slurring so much as a single syllable.

‘Wonderstruck’ Dp Edward Lachman Tells All: How He Created the Eloquence of Silent Movies and the Grit of ‘The French Connection’

20 May 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Todd Haynes loves period films, and capturing the look of the eras’ movies, but he doesn’t stop there; he’s obsessed with the visual languages as well. And all of that would be impossible without Haynes’ longtime cinematographer Edward Lachman, who takes a forensic approach: If you want the look, it makes sense to use the tools and production modes that created it.

In “Far From Heaven,” Lachman figured out how to recreate the manufactured studio look of Douglas Sirk’s 1950s Universal melodramas, while shooting on real locations. For “Carol,” he mirrored the color palette and sense of composition of mid-century color photographers like Saul Leiter.

The Best of the First Third of 2017

28 April 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Folks, is the year moving a bit quickly or is it just me? Maybe it’s me? I can deal with that. Anyway, on to the point of this whole thing. With it now being just about the month of May, we’ve officially finished up with the first third of the calendar. As such, I wanted to once again highlight the best of the year so far, consisting of my top ten and various awards for 2017 to date. Much like last time around, when I did the first quarter of the year at the start of April, I’m mostly limiting it to things that have already hit theaters. My only exception is that I’m including eligible titles from the recently concluded Tribeca Film Festival. There are some others from the year that I’m fond of and might have otherwise included, but I didn’t want to cheat too badly, »

Should the Holocaust be off-limits to comedians? Independent Lens asks the question in The Last Laugh

24 April 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

This week Independent Lens asks if the Holocaust should be off-limits to comedians. The Last Laugh is a 90-minute documentary that asks whether some subjects are just too sensitive to be funny. Should certain topics always be taboo for comedy? Comedians and indeed humans in general often use humor to make light of things that are in fact very serious or tragic. It’s a sort of coping mechanism perhaps, that gets people through difficult times and helps them come to terms with terrible events — whether it’s the dark humor of morticians or the jokes doctors often crack to relieve the more »

“Between Us” and “Logan”: The Best of the First Quarter of 2017

31 March 2017 10:14 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Much like I seem to find myself saying around this point each and every single year…time really flies. Believe it or not, we’re now a full three months into the 2017 movie calendar, which means we’re literally a quarter of the way through the film slate for the year. Wow. That got me thinking about what the best of the bunch so far this year has been. Since now is the time when the film slate begins to transition into summer releases and counter programming independent fare ramps up, I thought it was the perfect time to praise the best of 2017 so far. Basically, anything that hit screens between January 1st and March 31st will be up for grabs here for my personal honors. Once again, here goes nothing! So far, 2017 has been on the weaker side of things, at least in my humble opinion. There’s been a few legitimately great films, »

How Richard Simmons Used His Painful Childhood to Become the Most Successful Fitness Guru in History

After embracing fame for 40 years, fitness star Richard Simmons has withdrawn from public life. Now friends and family address the mystery surrounding his disappearance from the spotlight. Subscribe now for the exclusive details – only in People!

Before Richard Simmons became a household name, he was known in his New Orleans neighborhood as “Dickie” Simmons, a praline seller.

Simmons grew up in the French Quarter helping his parents out with money by taking tourists through St. Louis Cathedral and working as a guide at the famed, haunted Musee Conti wax museum. Probably his first and favorite gig was when he was »

The Weekend Warrior 3/17/17: Beauty And The Beast, The Belko Experiment

15 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | | 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.  And if you're into box office and how movies might do, come play some of the box office games at EZ1 Productions including their new Pick 5 game!

This Past Weekend:

As expected, Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island won the weekend, and honestly, the Weekend Warrior’s original prediction of $61.6 million was pretty darn close to the movie’s opening weekend which ended up at $61 million. (Unfortunately, I chickened out on Thursday because my prediction was so much higher than all others and lowered it to $58 million, which was Still closer to than every other prediction last weekend.) Also, as expected (at least by me), Hugh Jackman’s Logan took a 2nd weekend tumble as has been the case with most X-Men movies, »
