Gifted review – real issues turned into gooey fantasy

15 June 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Plot contrivances and a copout ending compromise a film that tries to tackle the issue of a child prodigy caught up in family battles

There are one or two first-act laughs and nice moments in this spirited heartwarmer from screenwriter Tom Flynn, once much admired in script form on the 2014 Black List of unproduced screenplays. Yet the interesting touches give way to unconvincing contrivances and a final copout. Marc Webb (of The Amazing Spider-Man and (500) Days of Summer) directs. Chris Evans plays Frank, a hunky, beardedly handsome single guy in Florida with the entirely preposterous Kevin-Costner-ish job of “fixing boats”. His former job is, incidentally, no less implausible – disillusioned college professor. Frank is now legal guardian to his orphaned niece, Mary, who at seven years old is a brilliant maths whiz, and so was her troubled mum whom we see in a photo with a super-brainy short haircut.

Netflix Will Release Unseen Orson Welles Film The Other Side of The Wind

15 March 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In what can only be described as a major win for the digital streaming platform, the previously unfinished and unreleased final film by legendary filmmaker Orson Welles will finally reach audiences, courtesy of Netflix. The Other Side Of The Wind has languished in locked rooms in Paris for four decades, as a variety of producers have attempted to negotiate acceptable deals with the Welles Estate. Now, producer Filip Jan Rymsza (Sangue Azul) has succeeded, striking a deal that will see the completion of editing and a global Netflix release, as he explained to Wellesnet.

“Everything is signed. All the deals are fully closed, both the Netflix deal and all of the rights deals. Everything we have done for the past year and a half has been gruelling, but that’s finally over and now we get to be creative and finally bring this film to life.”

‘Logan’ Composer Marco Beltrami on R-Rated Wolverine Minimalist Score

3 March 2017 11:31 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold both wanted to end the Wolverine saga on a grace note. The fact that it’s uncompromisingly brutal (fully justifying its R-rating) only reinforces the final salvation. It’s their version of western classic “Shane,” and the minimalist score from Marco Beltrami (Oscar-nominated for “The Hurt Locker”) hits the right emotional chord.

“I knew it was going to be tricky because the visuals were going to lead and the music played more of a textural role,” Beltrami told IndieWire. “Jim didn’t want a [traditional] thematic score — he wanted an emotionally supportive score. So there was a delicate balance, and I experimented with some unique instruments for it.”

For “The Old Man Logan” theme (which you can listen to below courtesy of Lakeshore Records), this included Hammond organ, glass harmonica, and drum kits. This established the world-weary mood of the mutant hiding out in a »

Richard Portman, ‘Star Wars’ Sound Engineer and 11-Time Oscar Nominee, Dies at 82

31 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sound engineer Richard Portman, who received 11 Academy Award nominations and won for his work on Michael Cimino’s “The Deer Hunter,” died on Saturday at his home in Tallahassee, Fla. He was 82.

“He was an icon of his craft of motion picture sound re-recording, recognized with the highest honors of his field,” his daughter Jennifer Portman wrote on her Facebook page. “He was eccentric, irreverent, and real.”

Portman worked on nearly 200 movies and mixed the sound for George Lucas’ “Star Wars.”

Portman received two Oscar sound nominations in 1973 for Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather” and Michael Ritchie’s “The Candidate.” He was also double-nominated in 1974 for Peter Bogdanovich’s “Paper Moon” and Mike Nichols’ “The Day of the Dolphin.”

Portman received his first nom in 1971 for “Kotch,” directed by Jack Lemmon. He was also up for Oscars for Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein,” Herbert Ross’ “Funny Lady,” Michael Apted’s “Coal Miner’s Daughter, »

James Mangold Talks Logan at 20th Century Fox’s Genre Showcase, Read Our Impressions of the First 42 Minutes

23 January 2017 9:52 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In December at their 2017 Genre Showcase event, 20th Century Fox previewed the first 42 minutes of Logan, the eagerly awaited final chapter of the Wolverine saga. Daily Dead was in attendance at the event, and to give readers a big idea of what to expect, we have highlights from director James Mangold’s comments at the event, as well as our impressions of the intense footage that was shown.

After appearing as the character in now nine films (including his X-Men: First Class cameo) Hugh Jackman teams up once again with director James Mangold to bring his run as the “Mutant Formerly Known As Weapon X” to an end.

The two last brought the character to the screen in 2013 with The Wolverine, when original director Darren Aronofsky bowed out after a lengthy pre-production phase. The results were mostly positive, but moments felt hamstrung by superhero movie clichés, such as the out-of-place »

Entertainment Feature: Top 20 Celebrity Portraits of 2016, By Photographer Joe Arce

13 January 2017 9:16 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The year 2016 was a dangerous one to be a famous person. In the past twelve months, one dozen of my former photo subjects passed away, celebrities who at one time or another famously posed for my lens. However, on a positive note, at least photos are forever. Or to quote the immortal words of Pee Wee Herman – “Why don’t you take a picture, it will last longer!”

The ranking of the portraits are based on a combination of the star power wattage of the subjects, the artistic results and the difficulty of landing the quarry…for those budding smart-phone-celebrity-stalkers who may wish to play along at home. So without further adieu, I present my top 20 celebrity portraits of 2016.
