Review: Interstellar

27 March 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Christopher Nolan thinks big. There’s little question he has an impressive imagination and his body of work speaks to those larger issues. Often writing with his brother Jonathan, they have produced a series of films with a polish and gravitas that few other big budget spectacles can match.

And yet…

And yet, in almost every case, the lapses in story logic rob the movie of its power so you always walk out of the theater shaking your head in bewilderment. The great ideas and execution found in Memento and again in Inception are spoiled in his other films, notably The Dark Knight Rises. Such was the case with Interstellar, coming to home video via Paramount Home Entertainment this Tuesday. The larger theme of where we do go when we ruin the Earth beyond repair is a timely one as more and more reports indicate this is the century we hit the ecological tipping point. »

Examining the Christopher Nolan backlash

23 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Another Oscars season, and Christopher Nolan is overlooked again. With Interstellar getting a mixed reaction, we look at the Nolan backlash.

This article contains a spoiler for the ending of Interstellar.

In case you missed it, the Oscars were this past weekend and Birdman was the big winner. The Academy’s choice to award Alejandro González Iñárritu's fever dream was a genuine shock, with Boyhood the running favourite for many months. Nonetheless, some things never change, and in that vein it's certainly a non-surprise the Academy also hardly noticed the most ambitious blockbuster of 2014: the Christopher Nolan space epic, Interstellar. Indeed, I use the phrase "non-surprise", because how could it be a winner when it was only nominated for the bare minimum of five Oscars in technical categories that are reserved as consolation prizes?

This is by all means par for the course with a film that has »

Christopher Nolan Teaming With Zeitgeist For Blu-ray Releases Of Films By Andrey Zvyagintsev, Quay Brothers, More

20 February 2015 8:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Christopher Nolan, in addition to being perhaps the most cerebral director of blockbuster action flicks currently working, clearly cares a lot about the culture of preserving and appreciating film. He’s one of the most vocal advocates of for Kodak Film, along with his chums Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams, and he’s recently branched out into yet another previously uncharted realm, if you’ll forgive the vaguely galactic pun. Variety has recently reported that Syncopy – the production company co-owned by Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas – is planning a joint venture with New York-based independent film distributor Zeitgeist Films whereby the two companies will oversee and curate Blu-Ray releases for Zeitgeist’s prestige titles. And Nolan has good reason to trust Zeitgeist: they handled the release of his assured debut “Following,” a moody, minimal thriller about obsession and paranoia that led to the funding and release of his breakout picture, »

Listen to Rian Johnson Interview Christopher Nolan for 'Interstellar'

17 February 2015 7:29 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just after we learned that Interstellar would return to IMAX screens for one showing only this weekend on Saturday afternoon, you can dive back into the sci-fi epic in another way. Last month, Looper and future Star Wars director Rian Johnson hosted an interview with Christopher Nolan following a screening of Interstellar at the Aero Theater in Santa Monica, California. And all the cinephiles out there will be glad to hear that this is a 32-minute discussion between the two filmmakers talking about the inception of the script, technical details of production, and much more. It's definitely worth listening to in its entirety. Here's the 32-minute discussion between Rian Johnson and Christopher Nolan (via The Playlist): Interstellar is directed by British filmmaker Christopher Nolan, of the films Doodlebug, Following, Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. The screenplay is by Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan, »

Why ‘Birdman’ Will Be Mia at the WGA Awards

11 February 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The awards season momentum for “Birdman” — which has won the major trophies at the PGA, SAG and DGA ceremonies — is about to be halted temporarily.

When the Writers Guild of America hands out its screenwriting awards Saturday, the Oscar-nominated scripts for “Birdman” and “The Theory of Everything” won’t be named. Both scripts were excluded by the WGA last year when the guild sent out its nominations ballot to members, which included 60 scripts in the original category and 48 in adapted.

The script for “Birdman,” written by director Alejandro G. Inarritu, Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr. and Armando Bo, is up for an Oscar in the original screenwriting category. Anthony McCarten’s script for “The Theory of Everything” is contending for an Oscar in the adapted screenplay contest.

The WGA restrictions on script awards are far more rigorous than those for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, SAG-aftra and the Directors Guild of America. »

Editors Guild Selects 75 Best Edited Films of All Time

4 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now this is a list that could result in a lot of fascinating dissection and thanks to HitFix it comes to our attention almost three years after it was originally released back in 2012, celebrating the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 75th anniversary. Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing. In an accompanying article we get the particulars concerning what films were eligible and how films were to be considered: In our Jan-feb 12 issue, we asked Guild members to vote on what they consider to be the Best Edited Films of all time. Any feature-length film from any country in the world was eligible. And by "Best Edited," we explained, we didn't just mean picture; sound, music and mixing were to be considered as well. »

What is the best-edited film of all time according to those who do the job?

3 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A random bit of researching on a Tuesday night led me to something I didn't know existed: The Motion Picture Editors Guild's list of the 75 best-edited films of all time. It was a feature in part celebrating the Guild's 75th anniversary in 2012. Is this news to anyone else? I confess to having missed it entirely. Naturally, I had to dig in. What was immediately striking to me about the list — which was decided upon by the Guild membership and, per instruction, was considered in terms of picture and sound editorial as opposed to just the former — was the most popular decade ranking. Naturally, the 1970s led with 17 mentions, but right on its heels was the 1990s. I wouldn't have expected that but I happen to agree with the assessment. Thelma Schoonmaker's work on "Raging Bull" came out on top, an objectively difficult choice to dispute, really. It was so transformative, »

Before I Go to Sleep | Blu-Ray Review

3 February 2015 4:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After flopping at the box office and landing an unnecessary entry on the shortlist for 2014’s Best Actress Razzies for Nicole Kidman, Before I Go to Sleep arrives on Blu-ray with a bruised reputation. Pulpy, even schlocky at certain moments, director Rowan Joffe’s sophomore directorial feature still manages to be entertaining, a throwback to the kind of methodical studio neo-noirs we used to see more before Hollywood was overrun by the mindless recalibrations of endless superheroes and Michael Bay. With a little luck, it will have a healthy shelf-life, perhaps destined for rediscovery as an underrated guilty pleasure in decades to come.

Adapting S.J. Watson’s pulpy novel for his second feature film (2010’s remake of British noir Brighton Rock, starring Helen Mirren, was his neglected debut), screenwriter cum director Rowan Joffe forges onward in material that seems veritably inveigled with the past. Many may be pleased with the »

Aka Jessica Jones: Carrie-Anne Moss joins cast

3 February 2015 1:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Matrix star Carrie-Anne Moss has joined David Tennant and Krysten Ritter in Marvel’s Aka Jessica Jones

Aka Jessica Jones is shaping up to be a geek dream – firstly Marvel announced that Don’t Trust The B- In Appartment 23 star Krysten Ritter would be their latest comedy-star-to-hero casting gamble (in the title role), swiftly following-up with the news that David Tennant would play the villainous Purple Man.

Now, another sci-fi icon has joined the cast – Carrie-Anne Moss from The Matrix trilogy.

As you might have guessed, she will play what’s been described as a ‘no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica.’ That’s if – minor plot point alert! – ‘Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.’ There aren't many clues there, but, as ever, the lack of a character name suggests she is someone significant in Marvel lore.

‘Coherence’ DVD Review

23 January 2015 6:35 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Emily Foxler, Maury Sterling, Nicholas Brendon, Lorene Scafaria, Elizabeth Gracen, Alex Manugian, Lauren Maher, Hugo Armstrong | Written and Directed by James Ward Byrkit

Coherence centres on eight friends enjoying a very grown up, suburban dinner party. A comet is passing by Earth and changes to the atmosphere are making some of them jumpy and uncomfortable. An unexplainable shattered iPhone screen is an early warning sign that something unusual is coming their way. During what seems like the longest night, their real lives, jarred by this astronomical anomaly, are confronted with multiple, alternative realities of themselves.

Their problems start with a power cut and the intriguing sight of just one house in the entire neighbourhood that still has its lights on. Two of the dinner party go and investigate. When they return one has a cut on his head and doesn’t want to talk about what he’s seen. »

7 Beloved Movies You Didn't Know Debuted At Sundance

23 January 2015 12:49 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah has always been a place for independent spirit, unique storytelling and movies that challenge the so-called "rules" of film making.

Often, this translates to weird, unmarketable character studies that either never see the light of day or are shoved off onto VOD platforms without so much as a single advertisement. But this isn't always the case. In fact, some of the most beloved, iconic films of the last 20 years got their start in the many hallowed screens scattered across the small snow-covered city.

News: 9 Sundance 2015 Films We Are Dying to See

Here are seven hugely popular films that you'd never guess came out of the Sundance Film Festival.

Film Feature: Preview of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival

18 January 2015 8:06 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – This Thursday marks the beginning of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and yours truly will be in attendance to cover the fest for HollywoodChicago.com. Last year, the Park City, Utah event introduced the world to its 2014-defining sensations like “Whiplash” and “Boyhood”.

Those titles followed in the paths of indie landmarks such as “sex, lies and videotape,” “Clerks,” “Hoop Dreams,” “American Movie,” “Memento,” “Frozen River,” “Winter’s Bone,” and “Fruitvale Station,” among many others.

In pursuit of new favorite films for a new year, I’ve composed a relatively solid schedule so that I can devour as much diverse Sundance goodness as possible. Narratives, documentaries, white supremacists, nasty babies, Neil Hamburger, Chiwetel Ejiofor, stolen cop cars, and much, much more are all in play. But with hopes that everything I witness is the next “Boyhood”-like zeitgeist, I’ll be sure to report back here on what’s worth, »

Can Divisive Responses Lead Directors to Oscar Noms?

12 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With a number of critically and commercially successful films to their names, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher and Paul Thomas Anderson have their admirers, those who assume they could do no wrong. But there are those who are divided in their opinions. Nolan’s Interstellar and Fincher’s Gone Girl topped the domestic box office when they were released and currently hold the No. 15 and No. 17 spots, respectively, for the highest-grossing films in the domestic box office for 2014; however, the films received mixed reviews from Academy members and critics. Anderson’s Inherent Vice expanded nationwide Jan. 9, and while some loved the drug-fueled dark comedy, others were lost in the haze.

 The question surrounding these three directors is can these men land Oscar nominations Thursday despite the divisive response their films collected?

 Well, both Fincher and Anderson have received Oscar nominations for directing in past years.

Christopher Nolan on ‘Interstellar’ Critics, Shunning Cell Phones and Making Original Films (Q&A)

2 January 2015 8:20 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

A version of this story appears in the The Hollywood Reporter’s January awards issue.

Christopher Nolan is responsible for many of the most critically and/or commercially successful films of the 21st century: Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The PrestigeThe Dark Knight, Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and, in 2014, the epic inter-planetary/inter-dimensional sci-fi drama Interstellar, which he co-wrote with his brother, Jonathan Nolan, and directed alongside his longtime producer and wife of 17 years, Emma Thomas.

The much discussed and debated Interstellar cost $165 million to make and has thus far grossed more than $650 million worldwide, making it the only title among 2014’s top 10 worldwide earners that is not a remake, sequel, reboot or adaptation, but rather an entirely original film, something that is increasingly rare among the output of the big studios. While some have taken issues with elements of its plot and sound mixing, »

Brian Gallagher's 10 Best Movies of 2014

1 January 2015 8:57 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One could easily make an argument that 2014 was a great year for movies, and also that it was a terrible year for movies. The same year that brought us the culmination of a 12-year cinematic experiment (Boyhood) also brought us the dreadful Transformers: Age of Extinction, which, sadly, is the Only movie to be released in 2014 that has grossed over $1 billion worldwide. Now that the year is winding down, for better or worse, it's time to look back at 2014 and praise the best films of the year.

As I mentioned in my Most Overlooked Movies of 2014 piece, I didn't see nearly as many movies as I did in the past two years, due to a variety of different circumstances. While the number of movies certainly decreased, I found that, as I became more selective, I saw many more good movies than I saw bad, but I still wish I could have seen more. »
