‘Bright’ Review: Netflix’s First Blockbuster Is the Worst Movie of 2017

  • Indiewire
There’s boring, there’s bad, and then there’s “Bright,” a movie so profoundly awful that Republicans will probably try to pass it into law over Christmas break. From the director of “Suicide Squad” and the writer of “Victor Frankenstein” comes a fresh slice of hell that somehow represents new lows for them both — a dull and painfully derivative ordeal that often feels like it was made just to put those earlier misfires into perspective. The only thing more predictable than this high-concept police story is the idea that a year as punishing as 2017 would save the worst for last. At least “The Emoji Movie” owned up to the fact that it was just putting shit on screen; at least “The Emoji Movie” had the courtesy to dress it up in a bowtie.

  • DailyDead
Jesse Custer may have the heavenly power of Genesis, but that doesn't stop him from raising a little (or a lot of) hell wherever he goes, especially with the Saint of Killers hot on his trail in the second season of Preacher, coming to Blu-ray and DVD beginning November 14th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment:

Press Release: Culver City, Calif.

Film Review: ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ is a Dull, Magicless Bore

Chicago – Have you ever had such a bad case of déjà vu while watching a film that trying to remember where the familiar elements are from turns into a more enjoyable experience than actually seeing the film itself? If you haven’t, your quest for that kind of film is fulfilled by the incredibly forgettable “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.”

Rating: 1.5/5.0

Is it a long lost relation of the “Lord of the Rings” franchise? Yes, but probably a third cousin judging by the familiar, yet inferior approach. Does it cinematically play out like a typical, fantasy-based video game? You could probably give the audience each a video game controller and they would know what to do with it since more than a few of the climactic sequences have the same execution as a boss-level video game battle. Is the movie actually popular “Lord of the Rings”-based video game

Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer – The Flickering Myth Reaction

The Flickering Myth team react…

Villordsutch: Bond. Classic Bond. Everything about this trailer is screaming to all classic Bond fans to come and watch it from submersible taxis, secret volcano lairs and cheeky-winks to ladies. Yet at the same time there’s a foot carefully being left on the floor of the original Kingsman, here the case in point is a bad bastard wielding their disability with devastating power.

Not much is given away from this trailer except of course the removal of the Kingsmans home, the introduction of the Statesman, the main players (though who they’re playing for we do not know) and the return of Colin Firth; for this lack of major plot spoiling I’m grateful. It looks exciting,

Mary-Louise Parker to Play Janey Patterson in Series Adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes

  • DailyDead
Fans of Showtime’s Weeds series are in for a treat, because Mary-Louise Parker has joined the cast of Mr. Mercedes, the DirecTV series adaptation of Stephen King’s 2014 novel of the same name.

According to THR, Parker (R.I.P.D., Fried Green Tomatoes) will portray the recurring role of Janey Patterson, the younger sibling of the deceased Olivia Trelawney. Janey’s character plays a key role in helping an ex-detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) track down a relentless, boastful killer (played by Harry Treadaway, who replaced Anton Yelchin in the role after the actor’s tragic death).

In addition to Parker, Gleeson, and Treadaway, the Mr. Mercedes cast also features Holland Taylor, Kelly Lynch, and Jharrel Jerome.

Adapted for the screen by David E. Kelley and directed by Jack Bender, the (planned ten-episode) Mr. Mercedes series is slated to premiere this autumn on DirecTV, DirecTV Now, and the At&T U-verse.

‘Hell or High Water’ Review

Stars: Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Jeff Bridges, Gil Birmingham, Dale Dickey, William Sterchi, Buck Taylor, Kristin Berg, Jackamoe Buzzell, Katy Mixon, Keith Meriweather, Amber Midthunder, Joe Berryman | Written by Taylor Sheridan | Directed by David Mackenzie

Two Texan brothers, Toby Howard (Chris Pine) and Tanner (Ben Foster) reunite and start robbing branches of a particular bank with a plan in mind. This soon puts them on collision course with Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) an old Texas Ranger ready for retirement, who along with his partner Alberto Parker (Gil Birmingham) take on the job of tracking the bank robbers.

What makes Hell or High Water so good is that it takes the old style Western and brings it to the modern era without having to sacrifice the style. Set in Texas this is the story of two bandits robbing banks, but also having a reason to do it. The bad guy here is the bank,

Ryan Reynolds on why Deadpool worked and Green Lantern didn’t

Prior to 2016, Ryan Reynolds hadn’t had the best of luck with comic book movies, with a C.V. that included the critically derided Blade Trinity, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Green Lantern, R.I.P.D. Of course, that all changed with the release of Deadpool, which proved to be a smash hit with fans and critics alike, and has even picked up a couple of Golden Globe nominations including Best Picture and Best Actor in the Musical or Comedy categories.

During an interview with EW, Reynolds was asked for his thoughts on why Deadpool succeeded while his previous superhero outing Green Lantern failed:

“Well it’s simple: Deadpool always knew what it was. With Green Lantern, I don’t think anyone ever figured out exactly what it was. That isn’t to say the hundreds of men and women didn’t work their fingers to the bone to make it as good as possible.

Ryan Reynolds on Green Lantern Aftermath: I Was Unhirable

Ryan Reynolds on Green Lantern Aftermath: I Was Unhirable
2016 was another very good year for superhero movies in terms quality and box office, but definitely more of the latter. Arguably the biggest hit, and most certainly the biggest surprise of the year, was Fox's R-rated Deadpool. Something Ryan Reynolds had been trying to make for the better part of a decade. As it turns out, for at least half of that decade, he was virtually unemployable, thanks to another failed superhero movie he did.

In Variety's latest edition of their Actors On Actors series, Ryan Reynolds sat down to chat with Empire star Taraji P. Henson. During the conversation, he revealed that following the disastrous results of 2011's Green Lantern, he was in his own words "unhirable." Here is what he had to say about it.

"I represented the death of the superhero for a while. After Green Lantern, I was pretty much unhirable."

Ryan Reynolds Pinpoints the Exact Moment He Fell in Love With Blake Lively

Ryan Reynolds Pinpoints the Exact Moment He Fell in Love With Blake Lively
GQ has crowned Ryan Reynolds one of its "Men of the Year," and it makes total sense. The actor kicked off a nationwide obsession with Deadpool, regularly keeps Twitter in hysterics, and has one of the sweetest romances in Hollywood with wife Blake Lively. Ryan welcomed his second child with the Shallows actress in September and has never been shy about gushing about his relationship with her in the past. In February, he revealed how he and Blake first got together, but he saved the romantic story of the exact moment he fell in love with her for GQ. "Probably after the sex," he joked. "No, we were hanging out at this little restaurant in Tribeca that's open really late, and this song came on and I was just like, 'Want to dance?' No one was in there, so it was just totally empty. And it was just one

Ryan Reynolds And Paul Wernick Talk ‘Deadpool’ Sequel And The Surprising Link To ‘Guardians 2’

Ryan Reynolds may be one of the biggest stars in Hollywood at the moment, but at a special “Deadpool” screening and Q&A at Fox Studios in Los Angeles this weekend, moderator John Horn humorously introduced the former Sexiest Man Alive as “six-time Academy Award watcher Ryan Reynolds.” That’s a very on-brand description for an actor who, after being brought low by such mega-flops as 2011’s “Green Lantern” and 2013’s “R.I.P.D.

Dear Ryan Reynolds

  • LRM Online
Back in April, I wrote an open letter to Zack Snyder:

Dear Zack Snyder

That piece was shared more than 10k times, and was one of the coolest things I've had the privilege of experiencing in my three years as a writer for Lrm (Side note, it's a total bummer that when we switched from Latino-Review to Lrm we lost all of our old Disqus comments and Share data!). Since then, I've received requests and suggestions for more open letters. Since I don't want this to be a gimmick, I've always responded by saying that I'll only write these letters when I feel particularly strongly about something.

Such is the case with what's going on now with Deadpool 2, and it's something that I began to hit on during this week's spirited discussion on the Los Fanboys Podcast. So here goes nothing...

Dear Ryan Reynolds,

‘Playback’: Jeff Bridges on ‘Hell or High Water,’ Robin Williams and More (Listen)

‘Playback’: Jeff Bridges on ‘Hell or High Water,’ Robin Williams and More (Listen)
Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.

On this week’s episode, Jenelle Riley and I take note of an interesting thread running through a number of the year’s standout female performances: motherhood. There are a number of examples: Nicole Kidman in “Lion,” Naomie Harris in “Moonlight,” Amy Adams in “Arrival” — even earlier work like Susan Sarandon’s in “The Meddler” or Molly Shannon’s in “Other People.” And still to come is Annette Bening in “20th Century Women.”

Meanwhile, we take stock of the week’s biggest theatrical release, Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” starring Mark Wahlberg. A gripping and straight-forward procedural outlining the deadly 2010 incident on the eponymous drilling rig that resulted in the largest oil spill in U.S. waters. It’s a strong drama, but as far as awards goes, it could just be added ammo for another Berg/Wahlberg film later in the year: “Patriots Day.

The Last Word: Jeff Bridges on Dylan, the Dude and Surviving Box-Office Duds
In the six years since he reunited with the Coen Brothers for a brilliant remake of the classic John Wayne western True Grit, Jeff Bridges has struggled to connect with audiences in multiplexes, releasing little-seen flicks like R.I.P.D. and Seventh Son. But right now he's starring in one of the most critically-acclaimed movies of the year, the neo-western Hell or High Water. He plays a U.S. marshal days away from retirement that tracks a pair of bank robbers (Chris Pine, Ben Foster) across Texas. We spoke to Bridges about

'Preacher: Season One" congregates on Blu-ray and DVD in October

By Seth Metoyer


Preacher is one of my favorite series currently running on TV and it's going to be released on Blu-ray and DVD October 4.

The first season takes a while to get going, mostly because of character development but it really gets going. Lots of gore and is damned hilarious in spots. Very interesting characters as well. Can't wait for season 2. Read more about the upcoming release below.

From the Press Release

Based on the popular 1990s cult comic book series of the same name, the critically-acclaimed Preacher: Season One arrives on Blu-ray™ and DVD October 4 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The darkly comedic, hard-hitting, supernatural thrill-ride follows Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper, TV’s “Agent Carter,” Captain America: The First Avenger) who, after a supernatural event at his church, is thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

Film Review: ‘Ghostbusters’

Film Review: ‘Ghostbusters’
All reboots are haunted by the specter of the movie that inspired them, but Sony’s new gender-swapped “Ghostbusters” — which substitutes comediennes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones for the previously all-male paranormal exterminator squad — suffers from a disappointingly strong case of déjà vu. While both funnier and scarier than Ivan Reitman’s 1984 original, this otherwise over-familiar remake from “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig doesn’t do nearly enough to innovate on what has come before, even going so far as to conjure most of the earlier film’s cast (including Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man) in cameos that undercut the new film’s chemistry.

For Feig, who has carved out his niche in the comedy sphere by helming such distaff-led laffers as “The Heat” and “Spy,” this property offers a unique opportunity to test how a major Hollywood franchise might fare if entrusted to a

Cinema Gadfly – Episode 21 – The Vanishing

My guest for this month is Herb van der Poll, and he’s joined me to discuss the film I chose for him, the 1988 Dutch–French film The Vanishing. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

The director, George Sluizer, didn’t really direct much else besides this film and its remake The soundtrack definitely has a Tears for Fears vibe to it, which is 100% ok with me Herb checked with his Dutch parents to make sure we pronounced Spoorloos correctly Bernard-Pierre Donnadieu is basically perfect as the villain in this film If you enjoy this film, you’d probably also love Alfred Hitchock’s The Lady Vanishes The actress who plays the second girlfriend Lieneke, Gwen Eckhaus, was randomly in a television series in the Netherlands called Spoorloos verdwenen, which I assume is unrelated Getting a compliment on your film from Stanley Kubrick is a big

‘Deadpool’ Overtakes ‘Matrix Reloaded’ as Highest-Grossing R-Rated Movie

‘Deadpool’ Overtakes ‘Matrix Reloaded’ as Highest-Grossing R-Rated Movie
Neo is no match for the “Merc With a Mouth.”

Deadpool” has supplanted “The Matrix Reloaded” to become the highest-grossing R-rated film in history with more than $745 million globally. The “Matrix” sequel racked up its $742.1 million worldwide when it hit theaters in 2003.

Domestically, “Deadpool” is poised to overtake “American Sniper’s” $350.1 million stateside gross to become the second-biggest R-rated movie. “Deadpool” has earned $349.4 million in North America, but may not be able to catch up to “Passion of the Christ’s” $370.8 million to become the highest-grossing R-rated film on a domestic basis.

It’s a big win for Fox, the studio behind the raunchy action pic. Most studios shy away from greenlighting R-rated comic book films because they worry that teenagers won’t be able to buy tickets. With its liberal use of four-letter words and extreme violence, “Deadpo0l” is certainly not for the squeamish or prudish. Fox tried

'Deadpool 2' Will Bring Ryan Reynolds a Big Pay Raise

'Deadpool 2' Will Bring Ryan Reynolds a Big Pay Raise
Deadpool is the biggest movie of 2016 thus far, and a cultural phenomenon to boot. It has broken a ton of box office records on its way to earning $497 million at the global box office. So it should stand to reason that the team behind the movie is due for a hefty pay increase as they embark on the already green lit sequel Deadpool 2. But with the follow-up set to maintain its low budget roots, just how big will that bump be?

Ryan Reynolds is currently preparing to renegoatiate his contract with 20th Century Fox for Deadpool 2. While director Tim Miller doesn't even have a deal to return yet, though he's expected to helm the sequel. The first movie is set to cross the $500 million mark less than three weeks in release. This is coming from a project that only cost $58 million to make. So, how will these big

Ryan Reynolds Expected To Receive A Massive Pay Increase For Deadpool Sequel

Deadpool has made over $500 million worldwide in a little over two weeks, an incredible haul considering the fact that it only cost $58 million to make. Understandably, pretty much everyone who is set to return will be getting a pay increase, and that starts with Ryan Reynolds. He made $2 million for the first instalment, but due to being eligible for box office bonuses and backend compensation, he could end up earning as much as $10 million if it reaches $800 million as analysts currently expect.  That may not seem like much, but after coming off flops like Green Lantern and R.I.P.D., it's not a bad haul at all. However, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that his agents are already getting ready for a "big renegotiation" for the follow-up.  Oh, and remember how Deadpool's opening credits said the movie was "Directed by an Overpaid Tool"? Well, Tim Miller in reality only scored $250,000, a standard
