Variety Critics Weigh in on the Year in Film

22 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Were you thrilled or disappointed in the films this year? In an effort to sum up the themes of the last 12 months of cinema, we posed three questions to a panel of Variety critics and pundits.

1. How do you rate the 2016 slate against those of previous years?

2. What was the biggest scandal or most-talked-about issue of the year?

3. What aspect of film this year made you stand up and cheer?

Not surprising, there was wild variation among their answers. There were highs (“Moonlight”) and lows (the Nate Parker fiasco). Also not surprising: Politics were a big part of the conversation. Here’s how our panel weighed in.

Andrew Barker

Senior features writer

1. On the whole, 2016 had more than its share of disappointments: unusually soul-crushing sequels, middling attempted Oscar-bait, and some head-scratching misfires from typically reliable directors.

But any year in which moviegoers are treated to a genuine masterpiece from artists »

Watch This: Before Silence Of The Lambs, a trashy adultery thriller almost won Best Picture

20 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

One week a month, Watch This offers movie recommendations inspired by new releases or premieres. This week: With the Academy Awards a few days away, we look back at some of the unlikeliest Oscar nominees, picking a different major category every day.

Fatal Attraction (1987)

Silence Of The Lambs’ 1992 win for Best Picture (part of the last clean sweep of all five major categories by an Oscar winner) is often cited as the ultimate cinematic convergence of highbrow and lowbrow, a horror film about a sadistic serial killer who also possesses an upscale pedigree and is filmed with impeccable style. But trashy material dressed up in high-class studio filmmaking made it to the Best Picture table a few years prior, in a film that made arguably an even bigger cultural splash at the time, even if Lambs has emerged as the more enduring achievement in hindsight. Fatal Attraction took ...

The Manchurian Candidate and Jonathan Demme's filmmaking style

17 February 2017 4:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Feb 20, 2017

Thriller remake The Manchurian Candidate is a great showcase for director Jonathan Demme's use of the camera to evoke fear and empathy...

Iraq War veteran Ben Marco wakes up on a train with a jolt. For a second, he sees an apparition from the past sitting directly opposite him. Marco blinks, and the figure vanishes.

See related  Looking back at the BBC's House Of Cards House Of Cards season 4 spoiler-free review House Of Cards season 4 spoiler-filled review

Jonathan Demme’s remake of The Manchurian Candidate is full of small yet jarring sequences like this: moments which take place in a familiar setting, but with something strange or somehow out of place thrown in. Not long after Marco wakes up on the train, he strikes up a begrudging conversation with a young woman, Rose (Kimberly Elise), who says she's seen him around. Rose appears to have taken »

Alamo Drafthouse, Kodak Partner on 35Mm Film Celebration (Exclusive)

16 February 2017 9:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We live in a pixelated world. Much of our day is spent staring at watches, laptops, desktops, iPods, and iPads that offer up digitized video, newsfeeds, and Facebook posts. These pixels are even dominating the biggest screens of all, as more and more movie theaters abandon film for the convenience and cost savings of digital projection. But there remain purists, for whom the flicker and luster of film remains a vital component of the movie-going experience. Quentin Tarantino, for instance, once blasted digital projection, dismissing it as “just television in cinema” and predicting it would lead to the death of movies.

Well the “Pulp Fiction” director and his partisans should mark their calendars. Alamo Drafthouse is partnering with Kodak on the first-ever “Reel Film Day,” a celebration of 35mm film. Both companies say they see the advantages of digitization, but they also want to celebrate the look, flavor, and art of celluloid. »

Jurassic World 2 to Tackle Dinosaur Rights Issue?

14 February 2017 12:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jurassic World wound up really taking the world by surprise in 2015. People expected the movie to be big, but it was truly a monstrous smash hit and has really reinvigorated the Jurassic Park franchise. That said, it was a little hard for some to imagine where the story could go from there and even though Jurassic World 2 will start filming this month, plot details have been almost as non-existent as the prehistoric creatures at the center of the franchise. Now, thanks to a couple of newly purchased domain names, we have our first look at the potential plot for the upcoming Jurassic World sequel.

Recently, the folks over at the fan site Jurassic Outpost noticed that Universal purchased two new domain names that are very clearly related to Jurassic World 2; and (as well as .org). While that may not seem like much, the domain names are pretty telling. »

12 February 2017 9:48 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Former WWE star Dave Baustisa has joined the cast of Hotel Artemis, the film which will be the directorial debut of Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce. The news of Bautista’s casting was announced at the Berlin Film Festival over the weekend.

Jodie Foster (Silence of the Lambs, The Accused) is already cast in the action-thriller, which goes before the cameras very soon.

Penned by Pearce and set in the near future, Hotel Artemis follows a nurse (Foster) who runs an underground hospital for Los Angeles’ most sinister criminals, and finds that one of her patients is actually there to assassinate another.

Director Pearce said: “Mr. Bautista is a force to be reckoned with — a powerful presence who’s equal parts strength and soulfulness. I’m a true fan, and it’s a privilege to have him in the world of Hotel Artemis.”

Newswire: Ted Levine’s going to Jurassic World 2

10 February 2017 10:54 AM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

Ted Levine’s been busy with guest spots on Mad Dogs and Ray Donovan, which means he could probably use a vacation. Lucky for him, there’s plenty of room in Jurassic World 2, the sequel that will answer all of our Bryce Dallas Howard footwear-related questions. Variety reports the former Monk actor has joined Howard, Chris Pratt, and Toby Jones in the cast, though his role isn’t currently known. But given that he played an animal lover in The Silence Of The Lambs, he might really dig the “animal parable” storyline of the upcoming film. That critique won’t dominate the film, so you probably don’t have to worry about getting much of a morality lesson at your screening.

Directed by J.A. Bayona, Jurassic World 2 stomps into theaters June 22, 2018.
