The Definitive Movies of 1995

30. Sense and Sensibility

Directed by: Ang Lee

Ang Lee has gone in about eight different directions in terms of genre. His resume includes “The Ice Storm,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Hulk,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Life of Pi,” and this delightful Jane Austen adaptation, starring Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and young Kate Winslet. “Sense and Sensibility” took home the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay for the story of the Dashwood family, a mother widowed and left in difficult circumstances after her husband has left his fortune to his first wife, instead of his current one. So Mrs. Dashwood (Gemma Jones) and her daughters Fanny, Marianne, and Elinor (Harriet Walter, Winslet, Thompson) have to find a way to survive in a world ruled by men and the rules that seem to create obstacle after obstacle for them. Unfortunately, given the era, they are viewed as “unmarryable,” since they have no fortune and no prospects. »

Quentin Tarantino's 10 Greatest Female Characters

29 January 2015 2:30 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

“All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.”

Quentin Tarantino took Jean-Luc Godard’s quote to heart, populating his blood-splattered films with some of the most iconic female characters in the last twenty-five years. There’s almost always a female lead or, at the very least, a villain.

Case in point: Kill Bill. Nearly all the leads – with the exception of the aforementioned Bill – are ladies, and they’re all very, very, very deadly. Luckily, Kill Bill: Vols. 1 & 2 play select Cineplex theatres on Tuesday, February 3, and Wednesday, February 4, as part of this year’s Great Digital Film Festival.

Get ready for Tarantino’s double-bill with “Bang Bang” by Nancy Sinatra and a celebration of the badass babes that have defined Quentin Tarantino’s filmography.

Who is Tarantino’s greatest female character?

Sundance: Twisty-Turny Punk-Comedy-Thriller Dope Stands Out

25 January 2015 12:27 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

There’s a good reason Rick Famiyuwa’s Dope has hit Sundance like a neutron bomb. Amid the worthy coming-of-age stories and quirky romances and moody ennui, there was no way an infectiously entertaining, twisty-turny punk-comedy-thriller wasn’t going to stand out. But that it somehow manages to be all that while also offering a savvy look at race and achievement in our hyper-connected age? Boom. Dope is Go meets Risky Business meets True Romance meets Fingers, with a little bit of Boyz N the Hood and We Are the Best! thrown in. I don’t know if all of those movies were actually on Famiyuwa’s mind – I highly doubt it – but the film wears its referentiality on its sleeve, turns it into a thing, toys with it and uses it to toy with us.Our hero, Malcolm Adekanbi (Shameik Moore, pure dorky charisma), raised by a single mother »

Best Supporting Actress Oscar Predictions 2015

14 January 2015 11:44 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

1. Patricia Arquette is the actress to beat. Her role as the mom parenting two kids over 12 years in Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" could well be considered a lead. By moving her to supporting, IFC figured--correctly--that she had a better chance of winning the category. Arquette is movingly real and natural as the mother who shepherds her children through the breakup with their father (Ethan Hawke) and two turbulent marriages before emerging as a professional successful single woman--with an empty nest. Arquette's money scene comes near the end, when her son packs for college and she admits, "I thought there would be more." Arquette is a key window into this accessible and identifiable movie, for parents and children alike.   While Arquette, 46, has been a standout actress for years in such films as "True Romance," "Ethan Frome" and "Lost Highway," "Boyhood" is her highest-profile role to date and marks her »
