Film Reviews: Opening This Week (April 7-11, 2014)

Rio 2

(20th Century Fox)

A rather misleading title is just one reason to be slightly suspicious of “Rio 2” an eye-popping, ear-tickling animated sequel that labors to fold a cheeky family sitcom, an earnest environmental primer, an exotic jungle tour, a broad survey of popular music and an avian remake of “Meet the Parents” into one bright and noisy package. Mining an unwieldy number of domestic and ecological dramas from the continuing saga of a rare Brazilian blue macaw, here venturing with his new family into the perilous Amazon rainforest, this hyperactive toon extravaganza has color, flair and energy to burn. But it’s the sort of relentless juggling act that finally proves more exhausting than exhilarating as it lectures you about respecting Mother Nature one minute, knocks you over with a Gloria Gaynor cover the next, and squeezes in a lot of questionable comic relief in between.

Film Review: ‘Draft Day’

10 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After spending much of his career being likened to “High Noon” star Gary Cooper, Kevin Costner gets a countdown-clock movie to call his very own in “Draft Day.” Although director Ivan Reitman’s sports dramedy trades the streets of the Wild West for the equally rambunctious turf of pro football, and a duel in the center of town for one in the strategy room of the Cleveland Browns, the underlying situation is the same: A weary but fundamentally decent man must decide whether to stand his ideological ground or fall into line with the cowardly herd. It’s a role that fits the aging Costner to a tee in what’s easily the savviest sports movie since “Moneyball” — though you’d scarcely guess it from Summit’s Aarp-friendly marketing campaign and decision to hide the film from critics until the 11th hour. Opening in the mighty wake of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier »

Calvary review: A witty, moving and poetic Irish western

7 April 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: John Michael McDonagh; Screenwriter: John Michael McDonagh; Starring: Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillan, Dylan Moran; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 15

Brendan Gleeson and writer/director John Michael McDonagh (big brother of Martin 'In Bruges' McDonagh) are back in the wild west of Ireland following their hit 2011 cop caper The Guard. Calvary is just as dark and wickedly droll, but there is no revelling in the cynicism that surrounds Gleeson who is, this time, playing a priest - one of the good ones.

Father James looks increasingly out of place in small-town Sligo and is warned that his time is almost up. It's not a divine prophecy but a death threat he receives in the confession box, prefaced by one of the boldest opening lines in film history: "I first tasted semen when I was 7 years old..." The anonymous man goes on to explain that he »

SyFy Orders 12 Episodes of '12 Monkeys' from 'Nikita' Writers

4 April 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Two pilots based on movies go in, only one comes out. SyFy has decided to move forward with the television adaptation of Terry Gilliam's 1995 film "Twelve Monkeys" and pass on "High Noon" from "Hannibal" creator/writer Bryan Fuller, according to Deadline Hollywood. Both shows received pilot orders, but the network announced today they would only be ordering 12 episodes of "12 Monkeys" (fittingly) for a premiere in January 2015.  "12 Monkeys," the TV show, revolves around a time traveler played by Aaron Stanford ("Nikita," "X-Men 2") who's trying to save the world from a deadly plague destined to wipe out most of humanity. The role was played by Bruce Willis in the '95 film, but it was Brad Pitt who earned an Oscar nomination for his part as bug-eyed, mad as a hatter, Jeffrey Goines. No word on if Goines will appear in the show or who will be playing him, but Amanda Schull, »

WWE’s Oscar And Razzie Awards 2014

2 March 2014 12:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Wrestling is a strange beast. It doesn’t matter how good you are inside the ring, you need to play an interesting character to become successful. At its very core, wrestling is about acting on a stage. It’s just like going to your local theater, and watching a couple of actors performing on screen. Okay, so it’s not much like that at all, but it still all boils down to acting. And just like in movies, TV or theater, some people are really good at it, and some are embarrassingly awful.

Here, we celebrate the men and women who are the best at what they do in wrestling. It’s an art form that is under appreciated and often mocked. But really, no one else on the planet can do their job. We’ve seen wrestlers transition over to movies successfully like The Rock lighting up the screen in Fast and Furious, »

Watch: The Opening Of 25th Academy Awards, The First Televised Oscar Show

27 January 2014 12:37 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For over 60 years, Hollywood has been beamed into homes across America with the Academy Awards, bringing the glitz, glamour and stars into living rooms in every state. The yearly TV tradition started in 1953 when the show was broadcast for the first time, and today we'll take you on a trip down memory lane. The opening of 25th Academy Awards, aired on March 19, 1953, has now made its way online. It was an eventful year at the Oscars, with the Best Picture statue going to "The Greatest Show On Earth" over the heavily favored "High Noon," in what is now viewed as one of the worst upsets in the history of the ceremony. It was also a year in which bonafide classic "Singing' In The Rain" only managed a total of two nominations. It was also the first time that the awards ceremony was simultaneously conducted in New York and Hollywood, with »

Mercedes Sosa: An Unpersuasive Hagiography of the Beloved Argentine Folk Singer

21 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

In Mercedes Sosa: The Voice of Latin America, director Rodrigo H. Vila returns again and again to a close-up of a clock, like he's remaking High Noon instead of weaving together an unpersuasive hagiography of a beloved Argentine folk singer.

Mercedes Sosa rose from poverty to become an influential opponent of President Jorge Rafael Videla's military dictatorship, finally seeking refuge in Europe from 1979 until the regime collapsed in 1982.

The footage of Sosa seems to be entirely archival — she died in 2009 at age 74 — but Vila enjoyed expansive access to her family (Sosa's son, Fabián Matus, is credited with "Idea and Guest Appearance") and musical collaborators (David Byrne is the only talking head likely to be recognizable to viewer »
