Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie review: people get ready

18 July 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A magnificent science fiction drama, and a beautiful one. Wonderfully radical for the simple fact that it is ruled by principled ideas. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

We need a bigger word than humanist.

That was a word I used to describe the lovely, honest, sensitive Rise of the Planet of the Apes — and god, did it feel good to be able to connect those words with a big-budget science fiction movie. But now it feels too small to encompass where Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes the ongoing story. People-ist is the first coinage that leaps to mind, clunky as it is. Because there are nonhumans here who are as fully people as the humans are… in fact, the story is very much about the humans coming to »

Lukewarm Off Presses: Colin, Emma, Birdman and Thor

16 July 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

You might have thought you were done discussing these but I'm just getting around to posting about them, so don't shut your trap just yet. Here's five stories that we didn't get to in anything like a timely fashion but so what? Time is a flat circle. 

Story 1 Colin In Talks

I was going to wait to post about this until it was official and not just "in talks" but since the internet moves with the speed of everything casually mentioned as fact that everyone is aware of and will be old tomorrow, it should be noted that it looks like Colin Farrell will be the leading man of True Detective Season 2 (possibly Taylor Kitsch beside him). Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will be tough shoes to fill but as I relayed on twitter, he's a smart idea because people will be surprised when he's great because they haven't noticed that he often is. »

Bondarchuk says Battalion will top Stalingrad

27 June 2014 4:56 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Stalingrad 3D’s producer-director Fyodor Bondarchuk has a Us major in his sights for the national and international distribution of the forthcoming  Russian war film, Battalion Of Death, set during the First World War.

Speaking during a presentation of the first footage of Dmitry Meshiev’s drama about the women battalions formed in 1917 to fight on the Eastern front against the Germans, Bondarchuk said that negotiations were underway with “a big company” to handle distribution in a way “very similar to Stalingrad.”

The $30m war drama Stalingrad was released in Russian cinemas by Sony Pictures Releasing International on October 10, 2013  and posted the strongest opening weekend ever for a locally produced film with $14.3m from 1,400 screens. In total, the film took $52m (RUB1.75bn) at the Russian box office to become the top release of 2013 and was also a hit for Sony in China with takings of over $11.5m.

New Clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

26 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Graphic novels can be the source of hours of entertainment, but in the apocalypse, they can be quite effective as an olive branch between enemy parties. While we’ve seen tension boiling over between humans and apes in previously released trailers and clips for the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the latest clip from the film shows a human and an orangutan enjoying one another’s company over a shared graphic novel.

The new clip showcases Kodi Smit-McPhee’s Alexander, who approaches Maurice the orangutan (Karin Konoval) with a trade paperback copy of Charles BurnsBlack Hole comic book series, which he then uses to see if his newfound friend can read.

Maurice the Orangutan is back, and this time he's getting an education! The lastest clip from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes finds Maurice (Karin Konoval) learning to read with the help of human pal Alexander (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

It's a nice shared moment between ape and man, a relationship that quickly desolves as evidenced in the latest TV spot, which arrives along with this new scene. Check it out as Gary Oldman threatens to kill every single last stinking ape!

A Ten-Year Anniversary (2004-2014): Top 10 Cinematic Duds from Yesterday

11 June 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Has it actually been ten years already since we have been engaged in the realm of films dating back to 2004? A decade is certainly a long period of time to build our appreciation for cinema up until this critical point in 2014. In looking back at 2004, one can recall fondly some of the more desirable releases to come out at that time. For instance, the superb Million Dollar Baby was the Academy Award-winning film for 2004. Even the comedies that were released that year gave movie audiences cause to rejoice with such ditties as the sleeper indie hit Napoleon Dynamite and well as mainstream laughers in Mean Girls and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy.

Unfortunately for every gem there is a dud and then some. And 2004 had its share to say the least. So how about getting nostalgic and recalling some of the notable misses that were heaped on misled moviegoers »

Oliver Stone to make film about Nsa leaker Edward Snowden

2 June 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Oliver Stone is tackling a hot-button topic with his latest project. The Oscar-winning filmmaker is planning a film about exiled Nsa leaker Edward Snowden, according to Deadline, after purchasing the rights to the book "The Snowden Files: The Inside Story Of The World’s Most Wanted Man" by Guardian journalist Luke Harding. Harding and other Guardian reporters who worked on the Snowden story will serve as consultants on the film. “This is one of the greatest stories of our time,” said Stone in a statement. “A real challenge. I’m glad to have the Guardian working with us.” Echoed Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger: “The story of Edward Snowden is truly extraordinary, and the unprecedented revelations he brought to light have forever transformed our understanding of, and relationship with, government and technology. We’re delighted to be working with Oliver Stone and [Stone's producing partner] Moritz Borman on the film.” There's no word »

What Did You Watch This Weekend?

2 June 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Weekend Watch is an open thread where you can share what you’ve recently watched, offer suggestions on movies and TV shows we should check out (or warnings about stuff to avoid), and discover queue-filling goodies from other Fsr readers. The comments section awaits. I’ll get the ball rolling with the movies/TV my eyeballs took in this weekend. I missed Oliver Stone’s Alexander when it marched into theaters back in 2004, but the upcoming Blu-ray release of his preferred director’s cut gave me the opportunity to close that gap. The film didn’t do well back then commercially, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Put simply, the movie is a mess. The editing and narrative choices overpower Alexander’s (Colin Ferrell) character and actions and deflate any hope of an emotional reaction from viewers. Antonia Bird’s Ravenous has been a favorite of mine for years, and »

Is Coachella a corporate sellout?

19 April 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Indio, Calif. (AP) — When it first started in 1999, Coachella was a couple of stages and a dance tent. Tickets were $65. A few dusty stands sold hot dogs and Cokes. It was the end of grunge and the start of a new millennium, and it was all about the music. All for one weekend. Now, tickets start at $375. Gourmet menus and VIP packages abound. And dozens of companies have hopped on the Coachella bandwagon, turning the music festival — now two back-to-back weekends — into a marketing hotspot. Adidas, Details magazine, Harper's Bazaar and Lacoste are just some of the brands that host offsite festival events for stylish celebrity guests. Rolling Stone executive editor Nathan Brackett said the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival has become a destination for fans and brands because organizers consistently deliver compelling lineups of diverse and unconventional musical acts. A reunited OutKast headlines this year's festival, and other acts include Arcade Fire, »
