‘Undrafted’ Review: It’s a Great Year for Baseball Movies, Just Not This One

15 July 2016 7:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Some baseball stories are exciting even to non-fans, and in theory, “Undrafted” should be one of them. Over 30 years ago, writer (and fantasy baseball pioneer) Daniel Okrent used a 1982 regular season Milwaukee Brewers/Baltimore Orioles game as the basis for “Nine Innings.” From the perspective of an outsider, the book offered one of the purest glimpses at the details that make the sport a rewarding watch. What Okrent did in 288 pages, writer-director Joe Mazzello tries unsuccessfully to do in 105 minutes with his new film “Undrafted.” From a inspired-by-a-true-story premise, “Undrafted” takes that one-game premise inside the dugout, watching a team of hapless amateurs stare down a crucial league playoff matchup in the wake of learning that their best player was overlooked at the Mlb Draft.

“Team” is a loose term here, as the dozen players and their accompanying, overriding personalities never really seem like a cohesive group. There are the standouts: Philip Winchester as Fotch, »

Forget The Bfg, Spielberg ain’t past it yet…

9 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on what the future holds for Steven Spielberg following the box office disappointment of The Bfg

This week, The Bfg joined this year’s list of ‘illustrious’ flops, at least in the Us where it tanked hard as it released off the back of Indepedence Day: Resurgence and the much more successful Finding Dory. That puts it in the same house as The Huntsman’s Winter War, Gods of Egypt & Zoolander 2. A Steven Spielberg movie. Based on a legendary children’s book by Roald Dahl. This can’t be right, surely? Well for whatever reason, nobody wanted to smell what The Bfg was cooking, and almost immediately commentators and sites decried this box office failure as the metaphorical ‘death of Spielberg’, suggesting the master of modern cinema has lost his magic touch with the takings and, moreover, has lost that special ingredient which made him arguably the »

John Williams’ 12 Most Underappreciated Musical Cues

30 June 2016 9:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Close your eyes and you can hear the music of John Williams without trying too hard. You know the greatest hits and can probably hum through most of them from start to finish, even if the extent of your musical career is plunking out “Heart and Soul” on your grandparent’s piano.

The legacy of Williams’ music extends beyond the cinema. The “NBC Nightly News” theme? That was him. That fanfare you’ll be hearing once the Olympics arrive? Him, too. A fan of that “Sunday Night Football” march that leads up to kickoff? Guess who.

And even though the world now recognizes Williams for his trademark triumphant horns and sweeping orchestral strings, this was a composer who, a year before “Jaws,” was penning acoustic love themes so ’70s they would make Burt Bacharach blush. So as much as we remember the soundtracks to dizzying flights across space and wide shots of dinosaurs in paradise, »

The 20 Best Biopics of the Last 20 Years

23 June 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Picture the ending of the standard-issue based-on-a-true-story film. Once the picture fades on a family’s final teary goodbye or the camera pans up from our hero(ine) in a moment of triumph, there’s a postscript. And then, the inevitable grainy home video or candid photo of the “real” main character, proof that someone in the casting office (or the hair/make-up department) did their job and brought you the closest facsimile of the real thing.

This may be the most common approach, but it doesn’t produce the best biopics. Good biographies recreate a moment; great ones evoke a sprit that reverberates through the current time.

Grease: Live! Star Aaron Tveit Says 2016 Election Satire in New Zombie Series BrainDead Hits a Little to Close to Home

13 June 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Art is imitating life for Aaron Tveit - for better or worse. Starring in Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King's new political satire thriller BrainDead, Tveit admits he and many members of the cast have spotted some unnerving similarities between their scripts and today's headlines. The D.C.-based CBS series follows Laurel (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), a staffer on the Hill who discovers that aliens are eating the brains of the local politicians. Needless to say, the government is not working very well. Tveit tells People: "When anybody asks what the show is about and I say, 'It's »

AFI Honoree John Williams Looks Back on Six Decades of Iconic Themes

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

Star Wars.” “E.T.” “Jaws.” “Indiana Jones.” “Superman.” “Harry Potter.”

Admit it: You can’t think of any one of those films without hearing the score in your head.

John Williams, who wrote all those classic themes [and dozens more] will receive the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award on June 9 from frequent collaborator Steven Spielberg. It will be the first such honor given to a composer in the 44-year history of the award.

“This man’s gifts echo, quite literally, through all of us, around the world and across generations,” says AFI president-ceo Bob Gazzale. “There’s not one person who hasn’t heard this man’s work, who hasn’t felt alive because of it. That’s the ultimate impact of an artist.”

Over six decades in Hollywood, Williams has written some of the most memorable music in movie history. His 100-plus features have earned 50 Academy Award nominations [making him the most-nominated living person] and he’s won five times. »

The 'Mary Poppins' sequel has a shot at being special

31 May 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that he has utterly and completely conquered Broadway, it’ll be interesting to see how Hollywood handles Lin-Manuel Miranda. It’s clear that he’s already been embraced by the creative community. He and Jj Abrams had a lot of fun creating that cantina song for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and had apparently even more fun performing the song live for crowds waiting for the daily Hamilton ticket lottery. He’s working on songs for Moana, the Polynesian-themed Disney musical that will feature Dwayne Johnson singing. His long-rumored connection to the Mary Poppins sequel has finally been verified by an official press release from Disney. While I consider Mary Poppins one of the crown jewels of Disney’s entire filmography, I am not instantly opposed to a sequel. It’s clear now that they are not remaking the original, and considering how much other material P.L. Travers wrote »

Best Series to Watch on a Sick Day

28 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When you're sick, sometimes lying in bed all day is the last thing you want to do. And sometimes binge-watching a new series -- perhaps one you've never seen before -- is just what you need. So take a moment to get cozy, make some hot tea, put up your feet, and check out these five shows that will have you laughing, crying, and feeling better in no time.

'Downton Abbey' (2010 - 2015)

"Downton Abbey" is one great to watch when you're not feeling quite like yourself and all you want to do is be outside. The idyllic setting, music, costumes, and simplicity of early 1900s England makes your day, or days, at home ever more peaceful. On top of it all, drama of its aristocratic small town -- full of murder, mayhem, and tea service -- will have you laughing, crying, and forgetting all about your sick day. »

Broadway's Secret Weapon

6 May 2016 2:53 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Drew Hodges is at a loss for words. Asked if he’s surprised at the life he’s leading -- did he imagine he’d grow up to fly around the world orchestrating scenes with great actors and artists for his own wildly influential agency -- he pauses three entire seconds. “I wish I had an answer for you,” he says. “It's like, Come for the veal, stay for the floor show.”

You might not know Drew Hodges’ name, but if you’ve enjoyed some form of popular culture in the past decade, you’re living in a world he helped create. "When I started, the idea of theater was still very much that ‘fabulous invalid’ thing," he says, “sort of dying, old, kind of nostalgic. I was lucky enough to work on a lot of stuff that started to chip away at that."

The new Foster’s advert

30 April 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It’s goodbye to Brad and Dan as Foster’s move away from laddish ads

Aw, mate. Foster’s have finally called time on the two beach-bum agony aunts so marinaded in blokey Aussie banter they could legitimately be called ripperologists. Say g’day to the new guy: Tom, an amiable drongo seeking his true calling.

While drudging away in a dry cleaners, Tommo has a brainwave: by half-inching various outfits, he can test-drive possible vocations while also charming the ladies. Suave long-haul pilot? No worries! Dashing medic in scrubs? The sheilas will love it! Smouldering matador? Ok, probably not an outfit you’d find in a suburban dry cleaners but it’ll look hilarious in the montage. Crucially, this is all framed as a knockabout Catch Me If You Can-style caper rather than the behaviour of a calculating, master-of-disguise pickup artist. The Mr Benn approach also opens up »

Tveit Me, Baby. Or Leave Me

6 April 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We didn't do our usual Stage Door column this past Monday (on account of no theater trips this week) so let's talk Aaron Tveit since we're focusing on male actors for a change this month. While he originally made his mark in stage musicals (including in the DiCaprio role in Catch Me If You Can) the small screen seems to have eaten up his time since. Nevertheless this week's "Miscast" benefit concert reminded us of his inarguable charisma. (More on that concert in a minute)

 

He hasn't done enough movies given how perfect he was as Enjolras in Les Misérables (2012) but at least we got to see him do Grease Live early this year. Unfortunately he's highly vulnerable right now at falling into the trap that many stage stars do where they end up wasted in TV genres like political, hospital, lawyer, or cop shows  that actors with far less »

The 10 Best Opening Title Sequences in Film

5 April 2016 6:09 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Title sequences don’t have to be boring. They can be just as exciting, creative, or innovative as the films they introduce. These are our picks for the 10 best opening title sequences of feature films.

Spring is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the beginning of brighter days than to celebrate the best film beginnings of all time! Check back all month long as we look at the films with the best beginnings.

The title sequence for a film is more than a bunch of letters spelling words on a screen. A title sequence is an opportunity for a filmmaker to grab the attention of his or her audience. It’s an ideal spot to introduce musical themes, set a stylistic tone, or establish a directorial style. During the opening titles a filmmaker has the opportunity to explain a backstory, show a flashback, or even dictate the setting to the audience. »

10 Actors Who Won Oscars For The Wrong Film

3 March 2016 8:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We like to pretend they don’t mean anything, but at the end of the day, critics always find reason to pick holes in the annual Oscar results. Forrest Gump taking Best Picture, over Pulp Fiction? No way. Best Director for Robert Redford, not Scorsese? Insanity. Crash winning Best Picture, over Brokeback Mountain? Complete and utter bullshit.

Seemingly nothing bothers a critic more, however, than when the Academy gets it wrong on actors. One argument has for the last couple of years been that Leonardo DiCaprio should have won an Oscar a long time ago, perhaps for What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, or Catch Me If You Can, or The Wolf of Wall Street.

Another thing critics generally agree on regarding DiCaprio and the Oscars is that Leo won the award for the wrong film. While extreme survival jaunt The Revenant has already seemingly taken on modern classic status, »

Oscars 2016: 10 Things We Learned

29 February 2016 9:52 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The movie world's own collective revenant finally came to an end on Sunday night as the 88th Academy Awards capped off six long months of speculation, soul-searching and social butterflying. Truth be told, it's been an unusually compelling Oscar season from start to finish: The lack of a frontrunner kept the pundits on their toes, while the lack of any non-white people in any of the major categories kept the voters on their heels. And though #OscarsSoWhite will obviously be what history takes away from this year's show (at least, »

Leonardo DiCaprio is Finally an Oscar Winner

28 February 2016 9:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The fifth time was the charm for actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who won the best actor Oscar Sunday for his performance in Alejandro G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant.”

DiCaprio had previously been nominated for “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape” (1993), “The Aviator” (2004), “Blood Diamond” (2006) and “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013). He was also nominated for best picture as a producer of “Wolf.”

In addition to those notices, he has been Golden Globe-nominated six other times, for “Titanic” (1997), “Catch Me If You Can” (2002), “The Departed” (2006), “Revolutionary Road” (2008), “J. Edgar” (2011) and “Django Unchained” (2013). He won for “The Aviator,” “Wolf” and “Revenant,” but the Oscar had been elusive.

“Thank you to [Alejandro G. Inarritu] and Chivo [cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki] for creating a transcendent cinematic experience,” DiCaprio said, Oscar (finally) in hand. He went on to speak again about climate change and how his experience on the film only fueled his passion in fighting it all the more. “Let us not take this planet for granted, »

The Last Man On The Moon – The Review

25 February 2016 11:29 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2015 may just be noted in the annals of cinema history as the year that Hollywood really went “space happy” (a more benign term for “space madness” I suppose). The Martian, a fairly fact-based film (though we’ve not gone to the “red planet”) won critical praise and was a box office smash. We’ll see if it takes home some Oscar gold this Sunday night. And of course there’s that space fantasy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that smashed several records and is still in the box office top ten nearly ten weeks after its release. The studios have mined the stars since the beginnings of movies over a 100 years ago. The great majority of these films are fictitious, with a couple of notable exceptions being the overlooked gem from the 80’s, The Right Stuff, and the 90’s nail-biter Apollo 13 (and its HBO companion mini-series “From the Earth to the Moon »

In the aftermath of its kickass midseason premiere, The Walking Dead packed arguably an even bigger emotional punch this week by burying a beloved character — well, beloved by me, anyway — and hooking up a twosome that some of you have been shipping for ages.
