‘Gook’ Review: Justin Chon Delivers a Powerfully Unsubtle Drama for Painfully Unsubtle Times

18 August 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Almost certainly the most confrontational film about the Asian-American experience since “Better Luck Tomorrow,” Justin Chon’s “Gook” is about as subtle as a trash can smashing through a pizzeria window, but this isn’t a story for subtle times. Set on April 29, 1992 — the first night of the Los Angeles Riots — it’s not a story about subtle times, either. On the contrary, this messy but lived-in drama is intended for a climate that’s tilted towards hatred and erasure, an environment in which people are forced to scream their voices hoarse just to remind the world of their basic humanity. You don’t call a movie “Gook” because you feel heard.

A frequently angry call to action that’s shot in spare black-and-white (all the better to evoke the scrappy kind of indies that were arriving on the scene back in the “Clerks” era), “Gook” hinges on two normal Korean-American guys. »

Worst WWE segment of the year so far? WWE stars return – WWE Raw, May 29, 2017 review

30 May 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Dean Ambrose & Hardy Boyz beat Miz & Sheamaro

After hyping his non-Extreme Rules Extreme Rules match against Dean Ambrose this Sunday, Miz welcomed Sheamus and Cesaro to Miz TV. All three men ran down Ambrose and the Hardy Boyz until the Lunatic Fringe himself came down to interrupt. Where is this going? There’s only one of you, Dean, and three of them. You’d need two more wrestlers on your side to even the odds, preferably ones that really don’t like Sheamus and Cesaro. I can’t see how you’re getting out of this one!

Yes, Raw opened with yet another obvious in-ring promo set up for a tag match, playas. The Hardys won as they have done since they returned at Wrestlemania, which would usually hint they’re losing on Sunday.

Kevin Hart Wants to Be the Oprah of Comedy

30 May 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stop trying to get Kevin Hart to eat another french fry!

It was an impulse order. Hart tried to change to a kale salad, only to be sweet-talked into indulging by the waitress at the Matador Room, one of those chic Miami eateries where the walls are alabaster and the trellises adorned with climbing bougainvillea. After inhaling four or five fistfuls of golden fries, Hart insists he’s done. He hands the plate to the bodyguard sitting at a nearby table, but each time the waitress walks by, she plops more savory potatoes in front of him.

“Goddamn, don’t bring them back over here,” Hart cries in mock exasperation. Finally, he grabs a glass of water and dumps it on the fries.

“That’s how you stop yourself,” he declares. Then turning to his bodyguard, Hart points to the bowl of drowning fries and says with a cackle, ‘I watered them up, »

5 Great Films New to Movies On Demand in May 2017, Including ‘Logan,’ ‘Get Out’ and ‘Raw’ — IndieWire on Demand

2 May 2017 11:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Movies on Demand. Catch up on the latest films On Demand here.]

Movies on Demand has another month of audience favorites in store, including some of the most popular titles of the year so far. Check out five of our favorite films from the upcoming month below, as well as the full list of great movies available throughout May.

1) “I Am Not Your Negro” (Available May 2)

Raoul Peck’s documentary about the life and work of James Baldwin is a stunning tribute to the writer’s vital work. Even thirty years after his death, Baldwin’s words still cut to the heart of issues confronting American society. With performances of Baldwin’s writing from narrator Samuel L. Jackson, Peck provides a deeply human gateway to understanding the achievements and contributions of a man who still has much to say about how our country understands race.

2) “The Salesman” (Available May 2)

Somewhat lost in the weeks of Oscars aftermath is the recognition of director Asghar Farhadi’s latest film, »

Smackdown hits ratings low, WWE Broken Hardys gimmick update – WrestleTalk News

27 April 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

Courtesy of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, more information has come out on the Vince McMahon movie being overseen by Vince McMahon.

Apparently the project was actually shopped around Hollywood last Summer, and was said to be very good, but because WWE weren’t on board, the major studios didn’t want to get involved because of the “inevitable fight over how McMahon would be portrayed.”

This changed when producer Andrew Lazar got McMahon’s blessing, which most likely means the movie will avoid controversy and focus on how incredible and revolutionary Vince was. You’ve been getting in touch with who you think should be cast as McMahon.

Harry Bailey wants Jack Nicholson in full The Departed gangster mode; Mafia Joe 619 has suggested Willem Dafoe; Jrarks and Phillip Bryant are pro-diversity, putting forward Samuel L. Jackson »

New Indie Players Score at the Box Office with ‘Colossal,’ ‘Their Finest,’ and ‘Your Name.’

9 April 2017 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Two new indie distributors injected some life into the specialty box office this weekend with two unconventional releases.

Both “Colossal” (Neon Films) and Japanese anime smash “Your Name.” (FUNimation) rode positive reviews to strong box office. With more conventional World War II drama “Their Finest” (Stx), three films from non-establishment distributors show impressive arthouse strength.

Jessica Chastain vehicle “The Zookeeper’s Wife,” shaping up to be the biggest specialty release so far this year, justified its initial wider run with a solid second weekend.

At least nine of the new limited releases this week also are available on Video on Demand. The only one to see much traction was “Alive and Kicking” (Magnolia), directed by specialty industry veteran Susan Glatzer, marking an unusual documentary presentation from Blumhouse Productions. The dance movie grossed $9000 in five theaters. »

Elsewhere, Amazon is unveiling another set of Bosch episodes, and a docuseries about Hugh Hefner called American Playboy.

Box Office: ‘Kong: Skull Island’ Rules With Mighty $61 Million Debut

12 March 2017 7:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Kong: Skull Island” emerged victorious after a battle of the beasts that pitted the giant ape movie against the Wolverine’s last stand. Cresting a wave of good reviews, “Kong: Skull Island” topped the domestic box office, racking up a mighty $61 million. That handily beat estimates, which had “Kong: Skull Island” debuting to between $45 million and $50 million.

King Kong’s roar didn’t totally drown out Wolverine’s berserker rage. In its second weekend, Fox’s “Logan” dropped 58% to $37.8 million, pushing its stateside total to $152.6 million. The R-rated comic book adventure is Hugh Jackman’s swan song as Wolverine after nearly two decades playing the X-Men team member.

Kong: Skull Island” gets bragging rights for topping expectations, but the film isn’t out of the woods yet. It cost a hefty $185 million to produce, which means that it will need to be a hit overseas if Legendary and Warner Bros., »

‘Kong: Skull Island’ Will Battle ‘Logan’ To Be King of the Box Office

9 March 2017 7:49 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With $88 million last weekend, “Logan” (20th Century Fox) made the case for a March box office rebound. “Kong: Skull Island” (Universal) should maintain that momentum, though not at quite the same level.

With a production cost of $190 million (double the “Logan” pricetag), “Kong” will need major worldwide appeal to justify the expense. Produced by the now-Chinese-owned Legendary Pictures, who are coming off the shaky “The Great Wall,” the new film ticks all the boxes for a hit.

It’s a massive production, familiar enough for traction but still fresh (particularly for foreign viewers), and sufficiently similar to other hits (see: “Jurassic Park” franchise). And, there’s enough intelligence in the directing and acting talent to suggest a good critical reaction. The director is Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who made his debut at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival with “The Kings of Summer;” the cast includes Tom Hiddleston, Oscar-winner Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, »

The Weekend Warrior 3/10/17: Kong: Skull Island, Brimstone, Canners

8 March 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | 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….but mostly movies. 

This Past Weekend:

It was absolutely no surprise that Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine movie Logan would top the box office, but it actually ended up doing even better than my prediction when actual numbers came in, grossing $88.3 million over the weekend. That makes it the fourth highest X-Movie opening (including Deadpool) but also the biggest R-rated opening for March, defeating 300’s once-impressive $70 million opening. It’s also the fourth highest R-rated opening of all time after Deadpool, The Matrix Reloaded and American Sniper.

The bigger surprise was how well Jordan Peele’s thriller Get Out held up in its second weekend, not only because it was going up against Logan, but also because high-profile horror films tend »
