Oscars: How Well Do the Cinema Audio Society Awards Predict the Best Sound Mixing Winner?

La La Land’ (Courtesy: Lionsgate)

La La Land recently took home the top honors at the Cinema Audio Society Awards — but does that mean the best sound mixing Oscar is in the bag? After all, shouldn’t the folks who know make their career in sound mixing be the best ones to determine which film should ultimately go on to win at the subsequent Academy Awards? You might think so, but here’s a dive into why that’s not necessarily so.

The films nominated alongside Damien Chazelle’s modern musical in the best sound mixing category include Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Upon first look, you might recognize that La La Land doesn’t exactly fit in with these other films, as most of them are in the war genre. Hacksaw Ridge is set during World War II, »

TV Review: ‘Sun Records’ on Cmt

20 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sun Records” is based, loosely, on the musical “Million Dollar Quartet,” which tells the story of the real-life, mostly impromptu jam session between Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins at a Memphis joint named Sun Records. That little record label was owned by a small-time producer named Sam Phillips, who despite marginal financial success went on to be immortalized in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — for discovering Presley, working with artists like Cash, Lewis, and Roy Orbison, and for producing the Delta Cats’ “Rocket 88,” an Ike Turner song that is considered to be the first rock and roll record.

Rock and roll history is dense, fertile territory for mythmaking and nostalgia, and Sun Records, the historic institution, is as good a peg as any. But “Sun Records,” the show, doesn’t quite tap into the raw power of rock and roll — or blues, or rockabilly, or »

Exclusive Interview: James Mangold Talks Logan, Deadpool Cameo, Solo X-23 Film And More

16 February 2017 5:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Mangold has established himself as one of the most versatile directors in the business. Having dabbled in an assortment of genres including the horror thriller, biopic and western, it made sense when he came on board for 2013’s The Wolverine. Although that film was a marked improvement over the debacle that is X-Men Origins: Wolverine, it still had its issues and as such, we were left waiting for that definitive Wolvie film.

Thankfully, that’s now arrived in the form of Logan, an incredible character piece that truly gets down to the heart and soul of the hero without ever shying away from the darkness. It’s not only the best Wolverine film to date, but could very well go down as one of the greatest comic book movies ever made. Seriously, it’s that good.

Last weekend, we were lucky to sit down with Mangold for an exclusive »

Coming Distractions: Logan Super Bowl trailer trades Johnny Cash for “Amazing Grace”

5 February 2017 4:32 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With Pirates Of The Caribbean using a Johnny Cash song in its Super Bowl trailer, Logan has turned to “Amazing Grace” for its showing at the Big Game—after using Cash’s “Hurt” in its excellent first trailer. To people who haven’t been following this film, that particular song may be a bit surprising, but we’re pretty far removed from the days of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine hanging out with the X-Men and feuding with Cyclops over Jean Grey’s heart. These days, it’s all sorrow, Professor Xavier dying, and stabbing people alongside a little girl who has the same powers as Jackman’s Logan. There’s not a ton of new stuff here, but we do get to see some glimpses of Logan’s new robot-handed villain and Xavier having what looks like a telepathic freakout, neither of which bode well for our hirsute hero.

Super Bowl: Fox Sports Addresses Political Division, Patriotism With ‘Ragged Old Flag’ Spot

5 February 2017 4:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox Sports acknowledged the elephant in the stadium — the depth of the nation’s political divide in the Trump era — with the “Ragged Old Flag” segment that led into the final half-hour before the Super Bowl kickoff.

The nearly five-minute short came together at the direction of Fox Sports president Eric Shanks, who was moved after attending the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack in December.

After returning from the event in Hawaii, Shanks heard the 1974 Johnny Cash song on radio as he drove home from the airport. The recording, more a recitation than a musical number, tells the story of one man’s pride in the tattered flag that flies above a small-town courthouse.

The assignment to translate Shanks’ inspiration into a short film for the Super Bowl broadcast fell to Jennifer Pransky, a Fox Sports producer who directed the “Ragged Old Flag” short. She took her cues from the Cash song »

Roxanne Roxanne Review [Sundance 2017]

29 January 2017 3:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Get ready to hear the name Chante Adams. She’s the standout in Michael Larnell’s by-the-books, but nevertheless very engrossing Roxanne Roxanne.

Backed by producers which include Forest Whitaker and Pharrell Williams, Larnell can count on more than just Adams’ star-making performance to make her film feel vitally alive. Nia Long (Lemon) and, recently Oscar-nominated actor, Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) are particular standouts here as well.

Taliyah Whitaker plays Shante as a little girl living in the Queensbridge projects challenging men twice or even three times her age to freestyle rap battles. As she gets a little older her talent gets refined, but so does her chronic ability to shoplift. Shante wants out and knows the only way is through her raw talent for music. At home it isn’t any better, as her prone to alcoholism mother Peggy’s (Nia Long) bad choices in men seeps through Shante’s »

Ryan Reynolds Predicts ‘Logan’ Will Be Oscar Contender

3 January 2017 10:17 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After the Oscars snubbed “The Dark Knight” in 2009, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences expanded the best picture race to a possible 10 slots, in the hopes of including more commercial titles. But so far, not a single live-action comic book movie has ever been nominated for the top prize.

In this week’s Variety cover story, “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds predicts that could soon change after the release of “Logan,” the much-anticipated final Wolverine pic, out this spring. Directed by James Mangold (“Walk the Line”), the R-rated drama is said to be more of a character study — if that’s possible for the genre — as opposed to a straight-up action movie.

“‘Logan’ looks like a movie that might break that glass ceiling,” Reynolds tells Variety. “I know first-hand that it’s amazing. I’ve seen some of it. It’s mind-blowing. It relies a lot on character.”

How ‘Deadpool’ Saved Ryan Reynolds

3 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Reynolds spent 11 years thinking about what it would feel like to walk in Deadpool’s shoes. So when he finally got to don the red Spandex suit, he’d already worked out the character: His underdog Marvel superhero wouldn’t have Superman’s steely strut but instead would walk with a bounce. “Deadpool is so feminine,” the actor says over soup at a hotel in Bel-Air. “At least in how I saw him.”

The trouble was that the stunt doubles had a hard time dropping the macho swagger. “I’d say, ‘When you land, can you sashay away?’” Reynolds laughs.

This week, Reynolds’ special gait will be on full display on the red carpet of the Golden Globes. “Deadpool” is the first live-action comic-book movie to score a best-picture nomination in the organization’s 74-year-history, competing in the musical/comedy category. And Reynolds is in the running as a best actor nominee, »
