Trash movie review: you know, for kids?

29 January 2015 8:55 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This isn’t a children’s movie… and yet it kind of is, too, with its odd mishmash of social realism, action thrills, misplaced comedy, and simplistic drama. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

The police in Rio de Janeiro “treat poor people like trash.” So says young teen Raphael (Rickson Tevez), in case you hadn’t already grasped the double entendre of the title. When Raphael discovers a really nice, surely accidentally discarded wallet while working as a trash picker in a massive Rio landfill, he shares the cash with his pal Gardo (Eduardo Luis), and then the two are off on a sort of treasure hunt to unravel the meaning of the other mysterious items in the wallet, including a train-station locker key, photos of a little girl, »

Watch: Clip And Featurette For Stephen Daldry's 'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara

21 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After the ignominious reception of “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”—and the similarly cool and tepid reaction to 2008’s “The Reader”—director Stephen Daldry has an uphill battle to gain back some goodwill with critics and audiences. Will the Brazil-set “Trash” get him back in your good graces? To help sway your decision, the film has released a new clip, along with a behind-the-scenes featurette. Running over a minute long, the clip from the Richard Curtis-scripted film takes place just after three trash-picking boys—non-professional newcomers Rickson Tevez, Luis Eduardo, and Gabriel Weinstein—find an important wallet and realize what exactly they’ve gotten themselves into. The clip also features Rooney Mara, one of two American stars in the film—the other being Martin Sheen—playing missionaries. A featurette has also been posted online, via Flicks And Bits, and it focuses on the logistics of shooting the film on location in Rio. »

How did 'Selma' go from Oscars frontrunner to token Best Picture nominee?

15 January 2015 10:57 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The good news for "Selma": it earned an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. The bad news: it was snubbed just about everywhere else, save for Best Song ("Glory"). This is clearly the worst outcome for any Best Picture nominee since the academy expanded the category from five nominees to as many as 10 starting in 2009. So what happened? -Break- Shocking Oscar nominations snubs: Jennifer Aniston, 'The Lego Movie,' 'Gone Girl,' ... Sure, a few other Best Picture nominees have had only one other nomination, but "The Blind Side" (2009) and "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" (2011) earned acting bids, while "A Serious Man" (2009) was up for Original Screenplay. "Selma's" only other bid is Best Song, and as much as I like "Glory," it wasn't written until months after the film was shot, which means no other elements of the actual production were recognized. So "Selma..." »

This is not a tragedy. Congrats to incredible crew and cast of The Lego Movie, who made a classic.

Congrats to "Everything is Awesome" though currently the title of the song doesn't seem especially accurate!

The 87th Academy Awards. Nominations Are Here!

15 January 2015 6:05 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Straight off the bat the happy shockers are Marion Cotillard for Two Days One Night (edging out Jennifer Aniston), Laura Dern for Wild (where many assumed Jessica Chastain would be), the weird surprise is Bennett Miller in Director for Foxcatcher, our first "lone director" nod since the Academy expanded the Best Picture field. In terrible news there were only two nominations (Best Picture & Song) for the grand Selma... which places it in the unfortunate company of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and The Blind Side. Yikes! In less horrific but still weird disappointing news: Nightcrawler pulled an Into the Wild by doing really well at the guilds but not so much with Oscar. 

Oscar had a boner for Birdman with many nominations

Grand Budapest Hotel and Birdman led the nominations with 9 honors each (though I correctly predicted Birdman being shut out of film editing so people will say it will have trouble winning now, »

'Wicked' Movie Planned for 2016

8 January 2015 7:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Into the Woods in theaters now, and Oz: The Great and Powerful in theaters less than two years ago, some might think it was too soon for a movie based on the smash Broadway musical Wicked. But if producer Marc Platt has his way, the adaptation will be in theaters by 2016, with Stephen Daldry (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close; The Hours) directing.

Film Divider had previously reported that Vue Cinemas' CEO Tim Richards was looking forward to Wicked as a highlight of the 2016 release calendar. Now Marc Platt confirms with the publication that is the plan, offering a resounding 'Yes' to the rumor. He then went onto say:

"It's not set in stone. The process of developing that movie has begun, we're working on it, and whether it makes 2016 or not, I'm not so sure. 2016 is the goal, but I don't know whether we'll make that goal or not. »

As Oscar Voting Closes, Is ‘Selma’ in Trouble?

7 January 2015 11:34 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Selma” has received 100 percent positive reviews on RottenTomatoes and ranks near the top in almost every speculative analysis of Best Picture Oscar nominees.

But when you tally up the results of critics and guild awards so far, Ava DuVernay’s dramatic story of Martin Luther King’s 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery suddenly looks vulnerable, not invincible.

It has won two critics’ awards as the year’s best film, from the African-American Film Critics Association and the Black Film Critics Circle, compared with 16 wins for “Boyhood” and five for “Birdman.” More gravely, it has only received a single nomination, for costume design, »
