News Nuggets: Oscar Best Picture loss by 'Boyhood' is the 'worst mistake' in 20 years

25 February 2015 4:20 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Dan Kois declares that the rejection of "Boyhood" on Sunday as Oscar's Best Picture was the Academy's "worst mistake in 20 years." He says we witnessed an "epochal travesty" when the Richard Linklater film lost, which only happens when "a true masterpiece, a movie for the ages, somehow battles its way through the mediocrity" to only lose in the end. He calls the eventual winner "Birdman" a "terrific" movie, but that we will look back to say "how did they let this happen?" Other "epochal travesty" losses over the years have been by "Citizen Kane," "The Graduate," "High Noon," "Goodfellas," "Pulp Fiction," "Apocalypse Now," "Raging Bull," "Raiders of the Lost Ark, and "E.T."

What Happened When Kevin Smith Showed Clerks 2 To Quentin Tarantino

25 February 2015 11:24 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Writer/director Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino came up around the same time, with both Smith releasing Clerks and Tarantino releasing Pulp Fiction, thanks to the help of a little-known man (at that time) named Harvey Weinstein. While the two filmmakers have since gone in entirely different directions as far as their careers go, they both made defining films right out of the gates and subsequently became buddies along the way. Years later, when Smith made Clerks II in 2006, he decided to screen the film for his buddies Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez to gather some feedback, prior its release. What did his good friends have to say about his resulting film? Mostly good things. Tarantino, as animated and passionate as ever, wasted no time getting the conversation started by telling Smith where he felt his comedy sequel really got its wheels going. Smith, nervous and even arguably a bit insecure, »

John Travolta's awkward Oscars reunion with Idina Menzel was rehearsed

25 February 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

John Travolta and Idina Menzel's recent Oscars reunion was almost more cringeworthy than his mispronunciation of Menzel's name at the ceremony the year before.

Now, a spokesperson for Travolta has confirmed that the pair's entire stage reunion was elaborately planned and rehearsed.

"It was rehearsed in total," the Pulp Fiction star's rep told Us Weekly. "John Travolta loved working with Idina Menzel.

"John had a great time at the Oscars because his wife, Kelly Preston, and his daughter, Ella, were in attendance with him."

Travolta mistakenly announced Menzel as 'Adele Dazeem' ahead of her performance of Frozen's 'Let it Go' at the 2014 Oscars ceremony.

Menzel returned the favour on Sunday night (February 22) by jokingly referring to the actor as "Glom Gazingo".

He responded by slowly stroking the Broadway star's face, saying: "I deserve that. I deserve that. But you, my darling, my beautiful, my wickedly talented Idina Menzel."

Broadchurch series 2 episode 8 review

24 February 2015 11:22 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Sandbrook murders have been solved and the Broadchurch verdict has been reached. So why aren’t we feeling satisfied?

This review contains spoilers.

Of all the possible reactions to a whodunit revelation - furious disbelief, knowing nods, cries of ‘I knew it!’ - lowest on the hoped-for list is indifference. Who’s the killer? Oh, them. Is the cricket on next?

Finding out who killed the Sandbrook girls and in what circumstances registered high on the shrug-o-meter. Lee shagged Lisa so Ricky killed her? Okay, right. Lee suffocated Pippa so she wouldn’t talk and Claire orchestrated the cover-up? That’s that then. Cup of tea?

Learning the truth about Sandbrook provided roughly the same level of satisfaction as pulling into a convenient parking space or popping a spoon through the metallic lid on a new jar of coffee. It was momentarily engaging, but ultimately banal. It could just »

Watch: Get Close With Quentin Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction' In This Supercut

24 February 2015 10:19 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even twenty-one years later, it’s a challenge to write about Quentin Tarantino’s epochal “Pulp Fiction” without feeling like you’re treading well-charted ground. Tarantino’s scorching second film is one of the most popular, influential and most-mimicked films of all time, spawning a litany of copycat flicks about talky, philosophical criminals and bringing phrases like “royale with cheese” and countless other catchphrases into the pop culture vernacular. Everyone who loves movies generally has something to say about “Pulp Fiction” and so too, apparently, does Mr. Mark Fraser: he’s comprised a supercut of all of Pulp Fiction’s intense close-ups, although he limits his focus here to images and objects within Tarantino’s world – not the actors. Taken on its own modest terms, the video is a neat little micro-distillation of the film that some folks call Tarantino’s masterpiece. Although the film’s rich, almost musical »

Indie Spirit Awards: Oscar’s Little Brother, or a Scrappy Rival?

21 February 2015 9:17 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It wasn’t that long ago that the Film Independent Spirit Awards gave rise to the expression, “Win on Saturday, lose on Sunday.” That’s because the Spirit Awards take place the day before the Academy Awards, and because the roll call of Spirit winners is full of films that didn’t quite make the cut with the Academy, starting with “River’s Edge,” “Sex, Lies and Videotape,” “The Player” and “Pulp Fiction” and going on to include “Memento,” “Lost in Translation,” “Sideways,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Juno,” “The Wrestler,” “Precious,” “Black Swan” … But as the Spirit Awards prepare for their 30th annual. »

Watch: Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez Watch 'Clerks 2' & Give Advice To Kevin Smith

20 February 2015 2:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

1994 saw two groundbreaking movies arrive: Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" and Kevin Smith's "Clerks." The films couldn't be more different — one was a star-studded, sprawling crime flick, while the other was a small comedy made on credit cards and starred a bunch of nobodies. Still, they both had a couple of things in common: a unique voice and the support of Harvey Weinstein. It's no surprise that Smith and Tarantino crossed paths, and become buds, but you might not know they've kept in touch in the years since. A dozen years after the original, Smith returned with "Clerks II," and understandably the director felt some pressure. So he screened the movie for his pals Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez to get some advice. The result was captured on camera and became a DVD extra (with Reddit digging it up recently). It's an interesting watch, not necessarily for what's discussed, but »

Review: Impressive Oscar Nominee 'Wild Tales' Makes Director Damian Szifron One To Watch

18 February 2015 2:02 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. The portmanteau picture has never been popular, exactly, but it feels like even in recent years the form has fallen out of favor. The "[Place Name] I Love You" series ends up with increasingly diminishing returns, horror movies like "Trick'r'Treat" and "V/H/S" reach a fraction of the audience that something like "Creepshow" did, and movies with multiple storylines seem to follow the "Magnolia"/"Traffic" crosscutting structure rather than separating into shorter, self-contained segments. It's fitting then that 20 years after the premiere of "Pulp Fiction” at Cannes, the Official Competition hosts another portmanteau picture. Like Tarantino's breakthrough, Argentine director Damian Szifron's "Wild Tales" (produced by Pedro Almodovar, which undoubtedly helped it secure its slot) is a collection of short films by a young filmmaker out to make »

2015 Oscar Winner Predictions

18 February 2015 8:52 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Take a sigh of relief, the Oscars are finally upon us. How many months will we squeeze out of 2015 before pundits start incessantly chattering about Awards Season again?

With any luck, 2016 will not be as contentious and as close of a race for Best Picture as it was this year. It has created a lot of excitement and confidence that the winner will be a strong one, but it has also created a lot of controversy and bile and disappointment.

My predictions for 2015 reflect the consensus of what will happen, not what should. But then with this year, anything can happen.

Best Picture

American Sniper Birdman Boyhood The Imitation Game The Grand Budapest Hotel Selma The Theory of Everything Whiplash

After almost near sweeps of critic prizes and the dominant film on Best of the Year lists by a wide margin, Boyhood may very well lose the Oscar for Best Picture on Sunday night. »

Jackson Weighs In On Marvel vs. DC Rivalry

14 February 2015 7:22 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Tribalism. It's often petty and pointless in this day and age, and sadly we all fall victim to it in one form or another usually because it engenders a sense of belonging and even pride. One of the most common, and silliest, is corporate tribalism - Windows vs. Mac, Android vs. iOS, Coke vs. Pepsi, PC vs. consoles, Playstation vs. Microsoft, etc. One of the most well-known though is that of Marvel vs. DC, with comics fans swearing allegiance to one or the other.

That particularly rivalry has only been exacerbated in the past decade as Marvel has effectively conquered the big screen whilst DC has struggled to keep up. It's not all bad news for DC though, Chris Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy is still often seen as the pinnacle of the genre (especially the second and to a lesser extent the first film), on the small screen DC »

Samuel L. Jackson on Why Marvel Movies Are Better Than DC

13 February 2015 5:34 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's the age old question: Who is better? Marvel or DC? We can all pretty much guess which side Samuel L. Jackson is on. He has played Nick Fury in 7 Marvel movies, and has two more left to go under his contract. He may have to choose a side, but he has an explanation for why he will always stand with Marvel. It's a conversation that is sure to get fans heated, and may even cause some controversy.

Speaking with MTV, the actor took some time out of his Kingsman: The Secret Service promotional efforts to focus on his main love. Why is Marvel better than DC? He calls it accessibility:

"The Marvel universe is huge. I don't know how many thousands of character there are in the Marvel universe that they can access and use. I'm not surprised by that. It's been that way since we started reading comic books. »

Darren Aronofsky's 'The Fountain' Recut into a Linear Timeline

13 February 2015 7:40 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I haven't yet watched this "remix" of Darren Aronofsky's 2006 film The Fountain, but the idea of it has me intrigued, though I guess it has me just as intrigued as much as that chronological cut of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction from a few years back, which I also didn't watch. But that's what you're getting here folks, YouTuber Paul Herrin has edited Aronofsky's movie to tell the story spanning from the 1550s to 2500 linearly. I'm not sure what the purpose would be, but without watching I can only imagine the impact will be lessened considering the edits were meant to work hand-in-hand rather than in a linear fashion. amz asin="B000O7667K" size="small"Herrin offers his own reasoning writing: I hope this provides an additional perspective of the film to better understand the impact of non-linear narrative in post-literate visual storytelling experience.

The Slap Review – TV NBC – High Drama Meets Flaccid Characterizations

12 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Slap, an 8-episode recreation of an Australian miniseries, which is based on a popular novel, is NBC‘s latest attempt at “Event Television,” but it is a tricky, sloppy effort that purports to be an examination of, to varying degrees, “reality,” but in the sense that demands the quotation marks.

As the promos, and name, give away, the show revolves around what happens to a family when one moment, a slap, throws everything into turmoil. This leads us to, as we get toward the end of the show, a great many secrets being revealed.

There could hardly be more of a misrepresentation of what this show is about.

After watching the show’s trailer, and perhaps hearing a very basic outline, you might get the idea that the show is about trying to get past a horrible mistake. A child is shown to be rather unruly, and his parents »

Uma Thurman's Makup Artist Puts Cosmetic Surgery Rumors To Rest

Uma Thurman has one talented glam squad! The actress was spotted at the season premiere of "The Slap" in Los Angeles on Monday, where she showed off a new, youthful look. The "Kill Bill" star made headlines the next day, with reports questioning whether she had gone under the knife for a little nip-tuck. Turns out, the 44-year-old was just rocking a different style of makeup. Thurman's makeup artist, Troy Surrat, spilled all the details about her new look to People, where he said that her fresh appearance was simply the effect of a little face paint. "Frankly, I’m quite surprised by the conversation," Surratt told the site. "By now I would have thought that we were all open to and knowledgeable of the role that makeup plays in the world of fashion and particularly celebrity, as a medium for creative self expression.

Samuel L. Jackson in talks to star in Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

11 February 2015 3:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After a long career that has seen him work with some of the biggest directors in Hollywood, it looks as if Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers, Pulp Fiction) will be able to cross another name of his list.

Deadline is reporting that Jackson is in talks to join Tim Burton’s latest project, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. The film, which is being produced by 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment, would see Jackson portray a character called Barron, which could well be the film’s villain, but the specifics of the role have yet to be announced.

Eva Green stars in the film as the title character, alongside Asa Butterfield (Hugo). Jane Goldman (Kick Ass, X-Men: First Class) is adapting the script, based on the novel by Ransom Riggs.

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is set for a March 2016 release. Jackson can currently be seen »
