Sundance Film Review: ‘The Wolfpack’

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Chance the Gardner, the TV-educated savant played by Peter Sellers in “Being There,” had lived together with his six siblings, it might have looked something like “The Wolfpack,” a truly stranger-than-fiction portrait of a New York family who’ve taken great pains to shelter their children from the outside world, but not from the world of Hollywood movies. Indeed, so weirdly fascinating is the tale of the Angulo clan that one wishes “The Wolfpack” were that much sharper, more searching and coherently organized. Still, there is much to enjoy in director Crystal Moselle’s debut documentary feature, which if nothing else begs a where-are-they-now sequel a few years down the road.

There’s a certain fated coincidence to the fact that “The Wolfpack” premiered in Sundance on the same day as Alex Gibney’s “Going Clear,” another documentary about a hermetic community started by a self-styled guru with entertainment-industry aspirations. »

Sundance Review: Hip-Hop, Comedy, Drugs, Youth & Crime Collide In The Dynamic & Vibrant ‘Dope’

9 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A coming of age tale for the post-hip hop and social media generation, a black geek picture for the Urkels and Kanye Wests of the world, a crime/drug caper, a comedy, a gettin’-out-of-the-ghetto film, and more, writer/director Rick Famuyiwa’s funny and vibrantly realized “Dope” packs in a lot of movie. Featuring a long, “Pulp Fiction”-like crime-comedy sprawl, with several story threads in the air, the movie also features a witty and sharp African-American cultural commentary a la “Dear White People.” And if that sounds dynamic, but a little overstuffed, that’s because it kind of is. But “Dope” starts out with fantastic energy, charm, and laughs. Centering on three friends in socio-economically challenged “The Bottoms” of Inglewood, California, the ‘90s hip hop culture obsessed trio — Malcolm (Shameik Moore), Jib (Tony Revolori), and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) — try to survive and get by. Malcolm, in particular, aspires for an education, »

Samuel L Jackson - No James Bond villain role?

13 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Samuel L Jackson doesn't think he'll ever get to be in a 'Bond' movie. The 'Snakes on a Plane' star has revealed that part of the reason he signed up for 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' is because he wanted to play a 'Bond' style villain. He said: ''I don't think I'll ever get to be in a Bond film, so I felt like this was an opportunity to play a really great Bond villain.'' A 'Bond' film is certainly not one of the next three movies on the cards for the 66-year-old actor, as he revealed that he must always know what films he's doing next. He said: ''I tend to insist to my agents that I know the next three movies I'm doing ahead of time.'' When asked if he drives his agents insane, he added: ''Yes I do! It's a lot of pressure finding a job for me. »

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight: 10 Things You Need To Know

16 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Quentin Tarantino shouldn’t be able to make films this quickly. On paper, he’s one of the more productive modern auteur directors, having knocked out countless screenplays and done a load of script doctoring at the start of his career, kick starting his own directorial debut in superior crime drama Reservior Dogs. And he’s barely paused for breath since.

Considering how densely packed his films are, how complex, how stylistically daring, it’s impressive he manages to make any of these films, let alone in such rapid succession. That he also manages to shift gears so dramatically – going from the fairly straight thrillers of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown to grindhouse/samurai revenge epic Kill Bill, war movie Inglourious Basterds and Western Django Unchained – is double so.

Speaking of which, a scant two years after Django he’s back with another Western, The Hateful Eight, which started shooting this weekend. »

Thanks for Noticing, Golden Guy: Top Ten Oscar-Nominated Actor Acknowledgements

25 January 2015 1:16 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 87th Academy Award nominations for 2015 were recently released on January 15, 2015 representing the excellence in film for the previous year. Naturally there was the standard controversy regarding those films and performances that got unfairly overlooked. Unfortunately, the perceived snubs do happen from year to year so this goes along with the territory. Nevertheless, the lucky selections that do manage to grab Oscar’s attention are understandably grateful and psyched to see if the golden statuette will in fact go home with them on the film industry’s biggest and most elegant evening.

With the obvious crankiness of Oscar omissions aside and the injustices that go with these “reel” deals has anyone ever considered the Academy Award nominees that are surprisingly recognized that could have gone unnoticed for whatever reasoning? After all there are films and exceptional performances that get lost in the shuffle but manage to get the accolades it »

Stephen King’s Needful Things is Coming to Blu-ray

23 January 2015 9:43 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Nothing is ever the same again in Castle Rock after Leland Gaunt shows up and opens his antiques store, Needful Things. There’s something for everyone in Gaunt’s shop, but instead of money, the prices must be paid through devious, deadly deeds. Based on Stephen King’s 1991 novel of the same name, Needful Things (1993) is making its Us Blu-ray debut via Kino Lorber.

Kino Lorber will release Needful Things on Blu-ray this June with a new audio commentary from director Fraser Clarke Heston. Fans of the film no doubt are wondering if this home media release will include the extended TV version that features around an extra hour of footage. Kino Lorber revealed they do not at this time have the rights to the TV version, but they are pursuing them and will keep fans updated on the procuring process.

We’ll keep Daily Dead readers posted on further developments. »

President Obama to Beyoncé: Hire a Masseuse!

22 January 2015 3:15 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

We've heard a lot lately about the Obama family's love for Beyoncé (not to mention Republican Mike Huckabee's distaste for the friendship). But we'd not yet heard how it all began. A new memoir by President Obama's personal aide de camp, "bodyman" Reggie Love, details the then-Sen. Obama's first meeting with Beyoncé and Jay-z. It was Sept. 27, 2007, during the primary race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, and the "hip-hop royalty" duo sat down with Obama and Love in the restaurant of New York's Mandarin Oriental Hotel. As Love writes in Power Forward: My Presidential Education, Beyoncé was then »

Bruce Willis Signs Up For Extraction

21 January 2015 2:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember when Bruce Willis used to make interesting, original movies, like Pulp Fiction, Twelve Monkeys and The Fifth Element? An air of excitement would surround each announcement detailing which project the actor would get involved with next. It’s been some time since that excitement has been felt, however, because Willis has essentially been making the same movie, repeatedly, for years. The next product from that assembly line will be Extraction, directed by Steven C. Miller (Silent Night).

The plot focuses on a father and son duo of – wait for it – CIA agents, with Willis as the seasoned elder operative who is traumatized by the – you guessed it – murder of his wife. His less-experienced CIA operative son is working with him on the manufacture of a super-weapon known as the Condor, but is thrust into the driving seat when his father, Willis, is kidnapped by terrorists. As he realizes that »

In Order Of Disappearance DVD Review

20 January 2015 4:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Hans Petter Moland 

Cast: Stellan Skarsgård, Kristofer Hivju, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Pål Sverre Hagen, Bruno Ganz, Anders Baasmo, Tobias Santelmann, Jakob Oftebro, Hildegard Riise 

Certificate: 15 

Run Time: 116 minutes 

Snowploughing Citizen of the Year Nils Dickmann (Stellan Skarsgård) is proof that ‘Norwegian kids shouldn’t disappear because of obnoxious parents looking for them’ in Hans Petter Moland’s latest film, In Order Of Disappearance.

Set amidst Norway’s mountainous winterscape, Moland and Skarsgård’s fourth collaboration is a noirish ‘Pulp Fiction went to Fargo’ comedy that sadly fails to measure up to the wit, violent humour, and humorous violence of Tarantino and the Coen Brothers.

Don’t get me wrong – I actually enjoyed this film…a lot, and was disappointed when I missed its screening at the Sydney Film Festival back in June, 2014.  Kim Fupz Aakeson’s screenplay contains numerous moments of brilliance like Nils’ showdown with Striker (Kristofer Hivju »

The 10 Best Films Of 2000

19 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With 2015 upon us, we figured it was a good time to look back on the movies the millennium has brought us. And so, we've dug into the archives, and are re-running our Best of the 2000s pieces, from way back in 2009 when the Playlist was a little Blogspot site held together with tape and string. Each list runs down the top 10 films of each year, starting today, with 2000. The original piece follows below, and thanks to staffers past and present who contributed. So here we begin, with the year 2000, the start of the 21st century, when everyone was finally over pre-millennium tension, Y2K and other-made up nonsense by the press trying to describe some sort of global anxiety or malaise. Film was not in a bad place. After years of the Academy rewarding chum like "Forrest Gump" (over "Pulp Fiction" or "The Shawshank Redemption") or playing it safe, ("Braveheart »

The Precedent for an Eddie Redmayne or Michael Keaton Oscar Win

19 January 2015 8:53 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With Michael Keaton winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy and Eddie Redmayne winning for best actor in a drama, both men continue establishing themselves as the frontrunners in this year’s lead actor race at the Oscars.

Though not new to films, Redmayne starred in Oscar-nominated films such as Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2008) and Les Miserables (2012). His performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, however, propelled him to widespread acclaim and put him on the radar. He is one of four best actor nominees — along with Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steve Carell — to receive their first nomination this year.

For most of his career, Keaton was known for his comedic roles, such as Mr. Mom (1983) and Beetlejuice (1988), and for his turn as Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). These roles earned Keaton praise and »

The Lego Movie, Oscar snubs, and what matters

19 January 2015 7:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Lego Movie has earned prizes far beyond an Oscar nomination. But the snub still hurts...

The dust has settled somewhat on last week's Oscar nominations, and as is the norm, controversy has not been in short supply. The more Oscar-friendly films - such as The Imitation Game - have already arguably been over-rewarded, whereas edgy, genuinely brave and daring movies such as Nightcrawler have been all but blocked out. To be fair, that's a surprise to virtually nobody: rarely have the Oscars ventured too far out of a mainstream comfort zone when it comes to giving out main prizes.

Yet the snub this year that's got people talking the most is the bizarre failure to nominate The Lego Movie for a Best Animated Feature Oscar.

It is, to be fair, a fairly staggering omission. For many people, The Lego Movie was the finest animated production of last year; a film bubbling with ideas, »

Watch: AFI Awards 2014 Montage

12 January 2015 10:21 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The American Film Institute is probably best known for those lists of the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time (y'know... if it's an American production in some way). Well, every year they hold their own awards, because every group of people has to have awards. They recognize the ten best films (for this year, it's eleven due to a tie) and the ten best television programs of the year. There are not winners in these categories, but each one gets celebrated. On that front, I kind of like the AFI approach to awards. Along with the awards, AFI has put together this four and a half minute montage chronicling the last 120 years of film. Now, it would be ridiculous to cover every single year. Instead, they start with 1894's Strong Man and jump every ten years, showcasing films like Rear Window, The Godfather: Part II, Pulp Fiction, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind »

John Travolta Returns to TV For ‘American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson’

John Travolta‘s had one of those amazing careers where each generation knows him for something different. The youngest kids probably know him mostly for his slip up at the 2014 Oscars. The generation before that, as the guy who made a big comeback in Pulp Fiction. Before that, the musical movie star of classics like Grease […]

Empire Review – TV Fox

7 January 2015 3:30 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Why is Fox‘s new show Empire extremely likely to win them good ratings? Because there seems to be no depth of reality television that won’t get people to watch. Except for Fox‘s own grand-scale effort, Utopia, which unfortunately only focused on several, specific stupid people, and not stupidity as a lifestyle.

If you’re curious about what’s in store for you, imagine that instead of a new reality show featuring the Kardashians, we instead created a scripted show which follows the life of… let’s say, “a similar family,” only we take a few outlandish liberties with reality… such as giving one of the Kardashian sisters a pimp, or a record for stabbing a paparazzi… or whatever.

Now, nothing exactly comparable is going on in Empire. There’s no reality TV family that ties together with this show. But, it’s the same feeling. It isn »

John Travolta to Star in FX’s American Crime Story

7 January 2015 12:29 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It looks like Crime is bringing John Travolta back to television. The Pulp Fiction star is joining the cast of Ryan Murphy’s new FX series American Crime Story as defense attorney Robert Shapiro. Although Travolta has made guest appearances on shows such as Kirstie over the years, playing Shapiro in American Crime Story will be his first major, series regular role on television in almost four decades, since he left Welcome Back, Kotter in 1979. In recent years, Travolta has starred in films such as SavagesHairspray and Wild Hogs.  In addition to being one of the leads on American Crime Story, he will also serve as a producer on the 10-episode series. Starring alongside Travolta in American Crime Story, entitled The People V. Oj Simpson, will be Sarah Paulson (a veteran of Murphy’s American Horror Story) and Cuba Gooding Jr. (Jerry Maguire). Paulson will play prosecutor Marcia Clark, »

John Travolta Joins American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson

7 January 2015 12:24 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After emerging as a trendsetter in the latest anthology series craze, American Horror Story has garnered critical acclaim and huge ratings for its dark depiction of humanity. As a result of its success, series creator Ryan Murphy is set to head up a thematic spin-off entitled American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, which has now added a major name to its ranks.

As its title suggests, the show will revolve around the infamous case of O.J. Simpson, which saw the professional athlete-actor on trial for the murder of his wife and her lover. At the time, the event formed the basis of a media circus, with channels the world over scrambling to devote time to its coverage. While the public were granted courtroom footage, little was known of what went on outside the court. This is where the series will step in. Uniting Murphy once more with FX Networks, »

Welcome Back Travolta: Return To TV for O.J. Miniseries

7 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It will be a cornucopia of nostalgia when FX takes us back to the Golden Age of Tabloid Television with "American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson", a 10 part miniseries  revisiting the sensational case 20 years after it reached its divisive verdict. In an announcement today, the network revealed the series ensemble will also feature one of the great pieces of nostalgia casting of recent times, with John Travolta taking on his first television role an astonishing 36 years he departed the little screen at the conclusion of “Welcome Back, Kotter”s four season run. Despite career ups and downs in the decades since, Travolta has apparently never looked back at the medium that he so dominated in the heartthrob role of Vinnie Barbarino, as well as his first major dramatic turn in the Made-for-tv movie, “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble.”   After suffering a career-near-death slump in the 1980’s »
