The Giver movie review: give it back

18 September 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A very simplistic Dystopia for Dummies — with a bit of Terrence Malick for Dummies thrown in — and inoffensive enough until it devolves into all kinds of stupid. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big fan of science fiction

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

It would be easy to let The Giver slide if its only problem were that it bears too close a resemblance to some of the other examples of young adult science fiction that have gotten recent transfers to the big screen. Such as (and most uncomfortably) Divergent, with which it shares a setting of a seeming utopia that shoehorns its happily conformist citizens into narrow roles until one oddball comes along who chaffs at the system. After all, the Lois Lowry novel this is based on was published almost 20 years before Divergent, »

Ben McKenzie suffers head injury while filming Gotham

14 September 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re all very excited by the premiere of Gotham which hits our screens on September 22nd. But remember folks, it’s all fun and games until someone bangs their head against a concrete pillar.

A few days ago Ben McKenzie – who stars as a young Detective James Gordon in the crime drama – was filming a fight sequence when the incident happened forcing him to be rushed to hospital to get stitches in his head.

The actor posted some images on his Instagram account and laughed off the accident afterwards, “Fight scene gone awry. Don’t ram your head into concrete pillars kids…Holy concrete wall Batman!”

Check out the graphic image below…

Thankfully it wasn’t a serious injury and he was able to dust himself off afterwards saying “Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday.”

New Gotham featurette focussing on Detective Harvey Bullock

12 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve had a couple of Gotham promos this week featuring on Oswald Cobblepot and Detective James Gordon, and now it’s the turn of Donal Logue’s Detective Harvey Bullock, who is the subject of the latest featurette from the Batman prequel series. Take a look below…

Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world’s greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon’s story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world’s most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker.

'Guardians,' 'Turtles' Lead August To Record $1 Billion Haul

2 September 2014 4:54 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Coming off a very weak July, the domestic box office got a lift in August thanks to strong performances from Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.Overall business came in at a record-setting $1.02 billion*a whopping 10 percent above last August's all-time level.August wound up being the second biggest month of the Summer, ahead of May and July and a bit behind June. That's very unusual*August is typically the lowest-grossing month of the Summer by a large margin. This helps explain why, even with August's strong performance, the Summer as a whole wasn't particularly impressive.Total domestic box office during the season was $4.06 billion, which is down 15 percent from last year and is the lowest total since 2006. Factoring in ticket price inflation, this was the worst Summer since 1992.For August*and for the year as a whole so far*Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was the highest-grossing movie with over $275 million. »

10 Big Differences Between The Giver Book And Movie

16 August 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There are few books from childhood that permanently shape the minds and hearts of the individuals who read it. When it was published twenty years ago, Lois Lowry.s The Giver inspired an entire generation of readers; the author-turned-grandmother still gets dozens of letters in the mail every day related to the book. With a black and white world that slowly turns into dazzling Technicolor and themes about what makes us human, it.s no wonder that a Giver movie was Jeff Bridges. pet project for over a decade or that heavy hitters, including Meryl Streep and Salt director Phillip Noyce signed on. It.s also easy to see why The Giver might be a tough sell to studios wanting to reach the largest audience possible. The Giver is a difficult story, one about an undemocratic state, but also about ethics and complex issues like eugenics and euthanization. Lowry.s »

Q&A: ‘The Giver’s Lois Lowry And Phillip Noyce On The Give And Take Between Author And Director

15 August 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Outside of the Angelina Jolie action film Salt, all the hits on Australian helmer Phillip Noyce’s resume are book adaptations. That ranges from his breakout hit Dead Calm to Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger, Sliver, The Bone Collector, Rabbit-Proof Fence, and The Quiet American; he is currently adapting Philip Roth’s American Pastoral. Noyce’s latest book transfer is The Weinstein Company’s The Giver, a Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weiden-scripted adaptation of Lois Lowry’s Newbery Medal-winning children’s novel that took 21 years to reach the screen. That glacial development pace allowed high action dystopian tomes like The Hunger Games and Divergent to score with young audiences, books that were written much later and likely were influenced by Lowry.

Review: The Giver

15 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Released in 1993, the 1994 Newbery Medal winner The Giver by Lois Lowry has been one of the most controversial and influential novels of the 1990s. Banned from schools across the nation for being "violent" or "unsuited for younger age groups," this dystopic tale centers around Jonas, a young boy who lives in a literally colorless world of contentment.

Screenwriters Robert B. Weide and Michael Mitnick have adapted this book in the sci-fi thriller film The Giver, directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt, The Patriot Games).

In what at first appears to be an utopian society of "Sameness" with absence of pain and suffering, Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) seems content with his friends and family. He lives with his parents, the dutiful nurturer Father (Alexander Skarsgard) and his more stern and unyielding Mother (Katie Holmes). His classmates Fiona (Odeya Rush) and Asher (Cameron Monaghan) are frequent companions, and prepare to receive their life assignment »
