Killjoys Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Schooled

23 July 2016 4:37 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

It was Delle Seyah's turn to resurface this time. Now we know she's in with Khlyen.

Though both those characters seemed like the villains last season, Killjoys Season 2 Episode 4 continued to blur the lines between the good guys and baddies. Yes, Khlyen has done some terrible things, but I no longer think he is the enemy.

I thought the brother angle was touching, and it helped John and D'av bond a bit more.

Watch Killjoys Season 2 Episode 4 Online

Based on the "previously on Killjoys" intro, it was clear Delle Seyah Kendry was back to cause Dutch and the boys some grief. She is one of those characters we just love to hate and Mayko Nguyen plays her to perfection.

The screaming-person-in-a-pod threw me for a moment, because I kept thinking of Khlyen. Last time we saw our favorite silver fox, he was trapped by the Black Root though Level 6 Fancy was at his side. »

Infographic: The Year Robert De Niro Stopped Caring About His Career

11 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It’s no secret that in this latter phase of his career, Robert De Niro has made some pretty poor decisions regarding the movies he chooses to make. Dirty Grandpa, New Year’s Eve, Meet the Parents sequels, and Shark Tale are just some of the awful movies De Niro has made that aren’t worthy of the […]

The crooked road to the wedding chapel is one well-worn by Hollywood.

Taylor Swift Meets Tom Hiddleston's Mother After They Hang Out With Her Parents

25 June 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's a full Meet the Parents week for Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, as they continue their whirlwind romance. The 26-year-old pop star jetted off with her new beau to his native England and the two met up with his mother, Diane Hiddleston.

The two women both dressed casually, with Taylor in a flowing black jumpsuit and Diane in a blue button-down shirt and black pants. Tom wore a form-fitting black T-shirt with its long sleeves rolled up to his elbows and black »

As Stacey Snider Ascends at Fox, Hollywood Is in Turnaround

17 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the 2014 New York Film Festival premiere of “Gone Girl,” Twentieth Century Fox Film Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos seemed visibly relieved to have Stacey Snider finally join the studio, after months of speculation that this capable executive would join him from DreamWorks. Now, almost two years later —and after a 25-year career at Fox —the studio has confirmed that Gianopulos’ contract will not be renewed after it expires on June 30, 2017, when he will graduate “upstairs” into an executive role at parent company 21st Century Fox.

This follows a transition for Snider that has not been smooth. While the veteran exec has the right mix of skills to run a studio (and did so at Universal with Ron Meyer), knows how to manage a team of executives, and how to develop, produce, and release movies that are smart and four-quadrant friendly, entering the Fox landscape proved to be a challenge. »

Emmy Contender Jay Roach on How His 1964 Civil Rights Drama ‘All the Way’ Is ‘About Now’

15 June 2016 5:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A version of this story first appeared in the print edition of TheWrap Magazine’s Miniseries/Movies Emmy Issue. When Jay Roach decided to make an HBO movie from Robert Schenkkan‘s Broadway play “All the Way,” he wasn’t exactly thinking about how the events of President Lyndon Baines Johnson’s first year in office would reflect on today’s political climate. But at some point, the director of the “Austin Powers” and “Meet the Parents” movies and of the HBO political films “Recount” and “Game Change” realized that Johnson’s struggle to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 spoke powerfully to voter suppression, »

Women in Film Names ‘Exemplars’ in Their Fields for Pioneering Work

15 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Crystal Award for Excellence in Film Honorees:

Denise Di Novi, Lianne Halfon, Lynda Obst, Jane Rosenthal, Paula Wagner, Lucy Fisher, Lauren Shuler Donner, Paula Weinstein

The eight honorees have blazed a trail for female producers while overcoming hurdles and making some great films. This year, the group includes risk-takers Denise Di Novi, who has produced dozens of films including “Heathers,” “Edward Scissorhands,” “Ed Wood,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” and is making her directorial debut with “Unforgettable.” Honoree Lianne Halfon has produced such docs as “Crumb” along with fiction features “Demolition,” “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” and “Juno.”  Lynda Obst’s credits include the iconic “Sleepless in Seattle,” “The Fisher King” and “Interstellar.” Jane Rosenthal, who is also Tribeca Enterprises executive chair, worked on “Wag the Dog,” “Meet the Parents,” and Katie Holmes’ feature debut, “All We Had.” Paula Wagner has been behind some of the biggest blockbusters of the past couple of decades, including the “Mission: Impossible” trilogy, “War of the Worlds,” and has Reginald Hudlin’s “Marshall,” about a young Thurgood Marshall, on tap. Lucy Fisher’s credits include the “Divergent” series and “The Great Gatsby.” Action hits are the driver of Lauren Shuler Donner’s career, including “Deadpool” and the “X-Men” franchise. As exec VP of Tribeca Enterprises, Paula Weinstein helps run the Tribeca film festival; she produced “Blood Diamond” and “The Perfect Storm,” among other films.

The BMW Dorothy Arzner Directors Award

Lesli Linka Glatter

Glatter, whose stellar reputation has been built on such series as “Homeland,” “ER” and “Mad Men,” couldn’t be happier about female directors, showrunners, and executive producers taking the lead. “Even on a bad day, I love my job. I love being a storyteller and getting to work in this incredible ‘team sport’ with so many extraordinary artists,” she says. “I am profoundly grateful to Wif for this amazing honor especially now, where issues regarding women directors are at the forefront of the cultural conversation.”

The Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award

Natalie Dormer

As Queen Margaery Tyrell on “Game of Thrones,” Dormer plays a powerful and clever royal, not far from her Anne Boleyn in Showtime’s “The Tudors.” The actress has a lot on her docket, including more “Thrones” and Stefan Ruzowitzky’s “Patient Zero.”  “I am proud to be part of the movement pushing forward,” she says.

The Sue Mengers Award

Hylda Queally

Named after groundbreaking superagent Sue Mengers, who guided the careers of Barbra StreisandSteve McQueen, and Faye Dunaway, among others, the award has been presented only once before. CAA’s Queally has earned it, representing some of the top talent in the film industry, including Marion Cotillard, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Lupita Nyong’o, Jessica Chastain, Rose Byrne, and Daisy Ridley.

The Lucy Award for Excellence in Television

Taraji P. Henson

Henson has become one of the most recognizable names in TV and film. Her role as Cookie Lyon on Fox’s “Empire” earned the actress a Golden Globe award and an Emmy nom. “I couldn’t be more honored or thrilled to receive an award from women and with the name Lucy attached makes it perfect,” she says. “After playing so many very dramatic roles, I hope this means someone thinks I can be funny.”

John Travolta: examining his recent straight to DVD movies

12 June 2016 2:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

twitter

google+

We check out the John Travolta films that have been bypassing cinemas over the past few years...

In the days leading up to writing this article, which will cover a recent period in which he’s made a bunch of films that have quickly drifted to DVD or VOD, I had to stop and ask myself a genuine question: how do I actually feel about John Travolta?

The answer that rose from the depths of my coal-black, hell-bound soul was weirdly surprising. Brushing aside his personal life – which is not worth getting into here – I found I had nothing but good feelings surrounding his work as an actor.

I grew up with Carrie, Grease, Look Who’s Talking and perhaps his best film, Brian De Palma’s Blow Out. I also grew up with some of his clunkers, like the Look Who’s Talking sequels and 80s concept comedy The Experts. He’s been acting since before I was born, so he’s always been in the background of my pop culture landscape – working solidly for more than 40 years.

Over those decades, his catalogue has defied explanation. He seems to unapologetically pick whatever he feels moved to be a part of regardless of criticism and, goddamn it, there’s something inherently admirable about that. Unlike, say, Bruce Willis, he doesn’t seem happy with doing just a couple of days work on a shoot in a smaller part; more often he will choose to be the star, or at least have equal-ish screen time – even if the project isn’t boasting a huge budget or a big name director. When Pulp Fiction thrust him back into the mainstream, he was still picking up stuff like Phenomenon and Michael in the following years.

I can confidently say that I’ve never seen the man actively 'phone in' a performance and even when he’s overcooked it, there’s usually a decent reason. I mean, if you find yourself on the set of Face/Off going up against The Cage, you’re gonna need to fight fire with fire. Even in Battlefield Earth, he was at least trying.

But in the last half decade we’ve found ourselves in a deeper Travolta trough than we’ve ever been in before. His films aren’t quite cutting the mustard in the industry like they used to and, after a run of flops that have seen him drift back into television with an impressive turn as Robert Shapiro in The People V. O.J. Simpson, I find myself wondering 'will Travolta ever be big business again?'

So, I took a look at four of the films that Travolta’s worked on in the last few years - each of which has effectively gone straight to DVD (save for a few days in a cinema) - to see if anything’s slipped under our radar that needs a boost…

The Forger (2014)

Rotten Tomatoes Score – 7% IMDb Rating – 5.7/10

In The Forger, John Travolta is a man serving a prison sentence who makes a call to get out of it early so he can spend more time with his dying son. In exchange for help with bribing the judge to release him early, John’s expected to help forge a Monet for his erstwhile crime boss, played by Hell On WheelsAnson Mount.

As the film casually flits between the forge/heist story and the bonding relationship between John and his son, it’s a testament to director Philip Martin - who comes from a TV background where he’s learnt his trade by helping to bring Prime Suspect and Wallander crime stories to life – that it isn’t a complete disaster. In someone else’s hands, it very well could have been.

Instead, The Forger has a delicate touch and a lot of the shots are interesting and unexpected without being jarring. It flows very smoothly and there’s an undercurrent of genuine love stemming from Travolta’s performance. After losing his own son, making a film about losing a son might have been cathartic and definitely quite close to the bone. I don’t want to read too much into Travolta’s choices, because that way madness lies, but it does really come across as though he cared about this one.

The Forger’s family scenes - with Travolta’s son Tye Sheridan and father Christopher Plummer - play really well, and while the tone of these scenes doesn’t gel with the heist elements of the plot, there’s good stuff here.

Overall, there’s not quite enough substance to sail the whole thing smoothly down the river, but it’s not bad by any stretch and the reviews have been a little harsh on what is actually a perfectly average film. No, you won’t watch it again, but neither will you probably regret watching it in the first place.

Criminal Activities (2015)

Rotten Tomatoes Score – 47% IMDb Rating – 5.8/10

Hoo boy, that title. That’s the worst title. I can’t imagine anyone involved could have wanted it. It’s maybe the most generic title I’ve ever seen. It’s so bad that even when I picked up the DVD, looked at the cover and saw that Michael Pitt (Hannibal, Boardwalk Empire) and Dan Stevens (The Guest, The Guest, The Guest) were Travolta’s co-stars in this, I still felt like I was drowning in the beigeness of it.

The film itself - Jackie Earle Haley's directorial debut - is an unfortunate mess. The plot, such as it is, involves Michael, Dan and the rest of the lads from their childhood gang borrowing money from a mob boss (Travolta) to invest in some sure-fire stocks that immediately collapse, leaving them out of pocket and in John’s. To pay off the debt, he wants them to kidnap a guy, because that guy’s friend kidnapped someone else. It’s convoluted and makes little sense, due to the fact that there’s a big twist coming at the end which will clarify most, if not all of it.

The actors are doing wayyy too much in the film - directed by an actor who clearly wants the actors to have room to act - and therein lies the fundamental problem. Apart from a great turn by Edi Gathegi (Gone Baby Gone, X-Men: First Class, Crank) it’s impossible to point a finger at anyone else in the cast and say 'yep, you, good job' because there’s just too much going on.

The twist is actually decent, but everything leading up to it is a headache. Working on a low budget, most of the scenes are dialogue-heavy, arduous and reliant on excessive coverage – so what you end up with is a film where a load of dudes sit in a room together and shout and swear at each other a lot. I wanted to take that final twist aside, buy it a drink, hug it, and reassure it that it deserved better.

I’m afraid to say there’s not much here to recommend, which is ironic given that it’s had the most positive reviews of the bunch.

I Am Wrath (2016)

Rotten Tomatoes Score – 13% IMDb Rating – 5.2/10

I Am Wrath is the worst film of these four by a long chalk.

Here, John stars as a man who decides payback is needed when his wife (Rebecca de Mornay) is killed before his eyes. That’s really all there is, plot-wise. See, it turns out he’s a man with a very particular set of skills and yada yada yada off he goes.

The script - written by Paul 'nope, nothing you’ve heard of' Sloan - is so very, very bad. I am going to tell you how bad it is, so you don’t think I’m just whistlin’ Dixie here:

During his wife’s funeral, John tells the priest that he’s an atheist after the priest gives him a bible in his time of need. Later, Travolta flings this bible across the room angrily. He then stops, pulls a full Joey Tribbiani 'smell-the-fart', slowly approaches the discarded bible, picks it up and reads a line about wrath with the dumbest revelatory expression on his face as the music builds. He sees this as a sign that he should become wrath, despite his earlier insistence that he thinks religion is total garbage.

Later, when asked who he is, Travolta looks determinedly into a mirror and says “I am wrath” – he said the name of the movie you guys! Holy shit. Honestly, I could not believe how hackneyed the whole thing was, not to mention bizarre - the film regularly abandons its serious 'violence begets violence' tone whenever John’s Bff Christopher Meloni turns up, suddenly becoming a jokey buddy comedy.

This was hard to get through. Please avoid it at all costs, for there is nothing here to keep you warm at night.

Killing Season (2013)

Rotten Tomatoes Score – 11% IMDb Rating – 5.4/10

De Niro and Travolta – together at last?

Well, the opening sequence gives us a bit of background on the reason we’re all here. Something bad happened during the Bosnian War that will bring our two main dudes together for some serious vengeance. The sequence is sepia, because past, and ohhhhh god, here comes the present…

It’s at this point that we discover that John is going to attempt an Eastern European accent. It is Not Good. It is not John Malkovich in Rounders, but it is Not Good and we are stuck with it for the duration.

His facial hair during this first scene is also completely ridiculous. I can’t adequately describe how bonkers it is, but try to imagine a werewolf that can only grow stubble carefully shaving a circle into its face. It’s a relief to find that they decided to tone this down for the rest of the film - he looks more like he’s wearing a black chinstrap from then on.

Despite the accent and the questionable chin beard, it’s a lot easier to buy Travolta as a man on a mission of vengeance during Killing Season than it was during I Am Wrath. He’s obviously jazzed to be working with De Niro and he’s knuckled down to bounce off him, keeping it low-key and making an effort not to overdo it.

As a result of this equilibrium, we also get a glimpse of a pre-Meet The Parents De Niro - which is very much welcomed, sweet lord - and the two men head into the second act ready to take each other on, hunt each other down and resolve those Bosnian sins of the past in the most violent way possible.

The script - by proposed Tomb Raider reboot scribe Evan Daugherty - occasionally stumbles, but is solid enough. The direction is fine. It’s fine. It’s probably Mark Steven Johnson’s best film (but when his other major films are Daredevil and Ghost Rider, that’s not exactly a gush) and as the two leads hunt and trap each other, a lot of Predator love oozes out of the frame. Unfortunately, this is not Predator, but you could do worse on an evening than to sit through this instead (if you don’t own Predator).

…Oh my god you guys. We should totally watch Predator right now.

Until next time, and until the next rebirth of Mr Travolta, I bid you adieu.

Fox lines up four 'Avatar' sequels

14 April 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

James Cameron surprised CinemaCon attendees at the end of Thursday morning’s Fox presentation to explain that his fantasy universe had become larger than originally expected.

“We have decided to embark on a truly massive cinematic project, making four epic films, each one of which stands alone and together form a complete saga,” Cameron declared at the Colosseum in Las Vegas.

Up until now the studio and Cameron, who is busy writing screenplays with four collaborators, had intended to make three sequels to the highest grossing film in history, when unadjusted for inflation. It finished its run on $2.89bn worldwide after opening in December 2009.

Avatar sequel release dates

Cameron announced Avatar 2 is scheduled to open in December 2018, and successive instalments will roll out in Decembers 2020, 2022, and 2023.

The film-maker could not resist the opportunity to state the case for the theatrical experience and became the only film-maker in a studio presentation here so far to refer to [link »

‘Spotlight’ Oscar Winner Tom McCarthy Honored by San Francisco Film Festival

13 April 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The San Francisco Film Society has selected “Spotlight” writer-director Tom McCarthy as the recipient of the 2016 Kanbar Award for excellence in storytelling.

The tribute, to be presented during the San Francisco Film Festival’s awards night on April 25, will acknowledge McCarthy’s “exceptional mastery” of character-driven plots that bring audiences along on the psychological journeys of his heroes and antiheroes.

He will also be honored at “An Evening With Tom McCarthy” on April 26 at Bampfa in Berkeley. An onstage interview and a selection of clips from his screenwriting and directing career will be followed by a screening of 2003’s “The Station Agent.”

“‘Spotlight’ won Best Picture at the Academy Awards this past year for many reasons, but its precise script, filled with perfectly conceived characters, inarguably set the tone and provided the heart and soul of the film,” said Noah Cowan, executive director of the San Francisco Film Society.

The time has come for Brick and Cindy’s parents to meet on this week’s underwhelming episode of The Middle. Not because they’re super serious at their young age, but more like Frankie feels desperate to socialize with other parents. Her and Mike are sure in for a surprise with Cindy’s family! Of course Frankie’s first mistake was comparing Brick to Axl. They’re complete opposites, as even Brick later points out. He’s not a jock like Axl so his parents never had any opportunities to meet or become friends with Brick’s friends. Plus, Brick only has two friends, and that’s counting

Why are movie comedies getting so long?

23 February 2016 10:31 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

Is the movie comedy that pushes two hours and change really a modern problem? And why are so many comedies so long?

Shakespeare wrote "Brevity is the soul of wit", which partly explains why there's only one good joke in Hamlet. John Michael McDonagh (Calvary, The Guard) said in an interview with this site “if it takes you two hours to tell a story you have failed as a filmmaker. 105 minutes tops is all you need if you're talented.”

The recent Tina Fey/Amy Poehler film Sisters is two hours long. While I enjoyed it, and laughed a lot, it starts to drag slightly in the middle of the party sequence, and feels like it might have benefited from a more brutal editing, killing some darlings and indulgence. It is a film with more to it than creating laughter, but not to the extent that it doesn't »
