An Oscar Contender Not to Forget: Michael Keaton’s Brilliantly Tricky and Winning Performance in ‘The Founder’

17 December 2016 11:22 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the Hollywood awards race, the big liftoff moment that looms — the announcement of the Oscar nominations — is like a sculpture-in-progress that we get to see worked on in public. Each day brings another bit of sanding and chiseling — the Critics Choice Awards! The SAG nominations! The New York Film Critics Circle awards! The guilds, the critics’ groups (is there one in Boise yet?), the proliferating awards shows: Each one helps to hammer out and shape the final roster. You may think that some of these groups are irrelevant, but every little bit counts; the sheer repetition of names can turn into a drumbeat that becomes a fait accompli. (Once you’ve read “Emma Stone, Isabelle Huppert, Natalie Portman…” in 16 different places, it becomes harder and harder for anyone — including Academy members — to imagine a slate of Best Actress nominees that doesn’t include Emma Stone, Isabelle Huppert, etc.) Repetition becomes perception becomes reality. »

Newswire: Ben Affleck is Kevin Smith’s favorite Batman, obviously

7 October 2016 7:38 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Speaking at a Comic Book Men panel yesterday at New York Comic Con, Kevin Smith shocked nobody in the room when he confirmed that Ben Affleck is his preferred Dark Knight. According to ComicBook.com, Smith lays out a pretty specific explanation behind his choice:

Ben Affleck rules as the Batman. The brilliance of Zack Snyder said, “let’s make him look and move like the video game Batman”. I mean it used to be Michael Keaton, and fuck, Mr. Mom doesn’t hit too hard, but Ben comes in and blows up 12 people just coming in the door.

That’s a serious finned-gauntlet being thrown down, so it warrants scrutiny. Yes, if you go by the rubric of punches per frame of film, the Mallrats director has a point; say what you will about Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but the warehouse scene alone makes it quantifiably ...

Why Kevin Smith Prefers Ben Affleck’s Batman to ‘Mr. Mom’ Michael Keaton’s

6 October 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Kevin Smith says his old friend Ben Affleck “rules as the Batman” because he brutalizes bad guys in a way Michael Keaton‘s Batman never did. The brilliance of Zach Snyder said, let’s make him look and move like the video game Batman. I mean it used to be Michael Keaton, and f—, Mr. Mom doesn’t hit too hard, but Ben comes in and blows up 12 people just coming in the door,” Smith said at a New York Comic Con for his AMC series “Comic Book Men,” according to comicbook.com.   Also Read: Ben Affleck Defends 'Batman »

Mother’S Day – Review

28 April 2016 4:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Sappiness overflows in Mother’S Day, an assembly-line rom-com with little on its mind beyond clichés and predictable formula. 81-year old director Garry Marshall, still mining the calendar after the similar New Year’S Eve and Valentine’S Day, has gathered a bouquet of celebrity movie stars including Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, and Kate Hudson, and shuffled them into tiresome skits about motherhood gone right and wrong. Mother’S Day is a shallow and sickly-sweet offering best avoided.

Jennifer Aniston has the largest role in Mother’S Day as Sandy, a divorced mother of two sons whose ex-husband Henry (Timothy OIyphant) has married the much younger Tina (Shay Mitchell), who tries too hard to be a cool stepmom. The story jumps between Sandy’s dilemma and those of a dozen others, such as childless Miranda (Julia Roberts), an uptight QVC superstar who has motherhood forced on her by »

Watch Michael Keaton Reveal the Brutal Story Behind McDonald's in First 'The Founder' Trailer

22 April 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Michael Keaton burst onto the movie scene in 1982 with his memorable performance as the fast-talking character Bill Blazejowski, aka Billy Blaze, in Ron Howard's Night Shift. Opposite Henry Winkler as a quiet, unassuming morgue attendant, Keaton was a ball of fire, an enterprising young man who carried a tape recorder so he wouldn't forget all his great ideas. What was especially fun about Keaton's performance was that he made the character likable, despite his often dishonest intentions. Keaton had been showing up on television shows and movies in small parts, but his turn in Night Shift was the right role at the right time.  He capitalized on that opportunity by starring in Mr. Mom the following year. Written by John Hughes, the movie caught the tenor of...

Batman to Birdman to Spiderman: Michael Keaton in Talks to play 'Spider-Man Homcoming' Villain

13 April 2016 11:08 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Word is, one of the most Iconic Superhero actors in cinematic history maybe turning heel, and taking on a certain walk crawling web head!

Before 1989 the nerd community scuffed at the idea of "Mr. Mom" playing the caped crusader. Today we argue "but is *Insert Batman Actor* better the Keaton?" But now we wonder, are we ready to see one of our favorite caped crusaders jump ship, and join the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

After yesterdays news broke that our official title for the Spider-Man reboot would be "Spider-Man Homecoming" today we learn, via Variety, that none other then Oscar nominated actor Michael Keaton is in early talks to play the films lead villain. While exciting this isn't exactly a surprise type of choice. Now that Marvel is acting as "Creative producers" on the film, that pretty much means they are running the show. And Marvel has a history with bringing on Oscar caliber actors. »

Directors' Trademarks: John Hughes

22 March 2016 3:41 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Directors’ trademarks is a series of articles that examines the “signatures” that filmmakers leave behind in their work. This month, we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of  John Huges as director.

John Hughes’ is one of the most influential filmmakers of the past few decades. His contributions as writer, director, and producer have created many well-loved and contemporary classic films. While his impact as a filmmaker in general overshadows his contributions just as a director, there are many commonalities between the films he directed versus the films he only contributed a script. As such, the trademarks considered below are meant to represent the films directed by John Hughes, but they can easily also apply to the films he contributed to, but did not direct.

Hughes’ career began as a writer for several advertising campaigns. He went on to join National Lampoon where he wrote several films including 1984’s Vacation, »
