‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children’ Review: X-Men Meets Harry Potter In Tim Burton’s Painfully Clichéd Ya Saga

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is a movie intended to challenge the idea that everything has already been discovered, that the world has been completely strip-mined of its wonder. If the message comes across as canned and unconvincing, perhaps that’s because director Tim Burton has spent a large part of the last 15 years ghoulishly repackaging some of the most exhausted stories in Western culture — at this point, his involvement in this project is like John Lasseter making a film that lamented the decline of hand-drawn animation, or Zack Snyder making a film that lamented the loss of quality blockbuster entertainment.

HBO’s Westworld: ambitious, clever, unmissable sci-fi

19 September 2016 11:24 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Sep 20, 2016

The new Westworld TV series feat. Anthony Hopkins comes to Sky Atlantic on the 4th of October, and does not disappoint…

Up until its last half-hour when Yul Brynner’s fearsome robot gunslinger engages relentless pursuit mode, Michael Crichton’s 1973 film Westworld is a romp. Its premise—the android attractions in a high-tech theme park malfunction with deadly consequences—may be nightmarish, but the film is rollicking.There’s a lively bar brawl set to old-timey piano, a cartoonish prison-break, a comedy underdog who appoints himself sheriff… Any blood we see is poster paint red and the brothel scenes now feel as chaste as Sunday school.

HBO’s TV adaptation goes a different route. Devoid of high-jinks, it starts serious and stays that way. This is cerebral sci-fi that asks more complex questions than ‘what if the humanoid attractions in a high-tech theme park malfunctioned with deadly consequences? »

Performer of the Week: Blindspot's Jaimie Alexander

The Show | Blindspot

The Episode | “In Night So Ransomed Rogue” (Sept. 14, 2016)

The Performance | As far as memorable entrances go, crawling out of a duffel bag in the heart of New York City is a tough act to follow.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Michael Giacchino Takes Over As Composer From Alexandre Desplat

16 September 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Without a doubt, music has played a pivotal role in Star Wars' success. Its memorable themes is, in many ways, responsible for a great deal of the emotional attachment we have for the character. From the booming main theme to the imposing Imperial theme, it certainly may go down in history as one of the most iconic scores of all time.

Up until this point, composer John Williams was the man responsible for all the music in the films. But, given Disney's accelerated schedule for the films, as well as well as the existence of the anthologies, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be the first Star Wars film not to be composed by him (though it's important to note that countless composers have been involved in the video games and animated shows). Oscar-winning Alexandre Desplat was announced as to be taking over scoring duties, but it sounds »

‘Rogue One’: New ‘Star Wars’ Film Swaps Out Composer Three Months Ahead of Release

16 September 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Gareth Edwards’ “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” the first standalone “Star Wars” film in the long-running franchise, recently went through extensive reshoots spearheaded by director Tony Gilroy in order to clarify story and tone. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will swap out original composer Alexandre Desplat for Michael Giacchino per those reshoots just three months ahead of the film’s release. The reshoots apparently altered the scoring calendar and Desplat was no longer available for the position, so Disney hired Giacchino to take over the role.

Desplat has been nominated for eight Oscars in total, winning one for his score for Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel.” He also contributed scores for two other Anderson films “Fantastic Mr. Fox” and “Moonrise Kingdom,” Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life, »

Newswire: Thanks to pesky reshoots, Michael Giacchino is taking over as Rogue One composer

16 September 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Earlier this summer, reports emerged of reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars story and handwringing began as to whether the first standalone entry into the franchise was going to be a disaster. Director Gareth Edwards tried to quell any fears that this news equaled a bad movie, and while we still don’t know whether he’s to be believed, we are learning a bit about how restarting production impacted the film. For one, the music‘s going to be different: The Hollywood Reporter revealed that due to timing conflicts thanks to reshoots Alexandre Desplat could no longer assume the duties of composer so those are going to Michael Giacchino.

That swap doesn’t really imply a dip in quality, though. Both are Oscar winners, after all. Desplat got his trophy for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Giacchino for Up. And while Desplat has experience adapting John Williams’ themes—he »

Michael Giacchino replaces Alexandre Desplat as composer on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

16 September 2016 1:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like the extensive reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has led to scheduling conflicts for composer Alexandre Desplat, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that the Oscar-winner is no longer available to score the film.

Stepping in as Desplat’s replacement is another Academy Award-winner in Michael Giacchino, who has worked extensively with Disney in the past on the likes of Up, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cars 2, Inside Out, Zootopia, John Carter, Tomorrowland and the upcoming Doctor Strange.

Giacchino will not have the distinction of becoming the first composer aside from John Williams to score a Star Wars movie. He is also a huge Star Wars fan, and made a cameo as a Stormtrooper in last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was directed by his friend J.J. Abrams.

The Disney Renaissance’s Little Woman: Katharine Hepburn’s Imprint on Belle

15 September 2016 4:36 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Few questions feel as stale as the following: Is the Disney Princess feminist? It's become profoundly boring to scavenge for an answer, so common is this refrain that arises each holiday season since Peggy Orenstein’s barnstorm of an essay. It will no doubt be a talking point upon the release of Moana later this year. The "Disney Princess" has congealed into a homogenous, lumpen unit of capitalist excess, so much that each character’s particular idiosyncrasies often become obscured in such discussions.Belle, the heroine of Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale’s Beauty and the Beast (1991), is a headstrong bibliophile with a peripatetic mind; she spends the beginning of the film longing to be elsewhere. “There must be more than this provincial life,” she screams in the film’s opening number, which economically introduces us to the townspeople who fawn over her. Belle, voiced by Paige O’Hara, occupies »

‘Million Dollar Duck’ Director: The Duck Stamp Truth Is Stranger Than ‘Fargo’

14 September 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Pop some popcorn and get your ducks in a row. The documentary “The Million Dollar Duck” wings its way to Animal Planet to unveil the real drama behind the Federal Duck Stamp Contest, which was a minor subplot in the Coen Brothers’ 1996 film “Fargo.”

The annual contest, which began in 1934 with the aim to raise money for wildlife conservation, pits artists from around the country in a duck-themed paint-off. After a panel of five judges weigh in, a winner is chosen, and with that victory comes prestige, bragging rights and the promise of financial reward.

Top 10 dogs on filmTop 10 dogs on filmAmanda Wood8/26/2016 10:00:00 Am

We humans have been sharing the silver screen with all manner of beasts for as long as movies have existed. But no animal quite manages to capture our hearts and our cameras as much as the good old-fashioned pet dog. Dogs have played major and minor characters in practically every genre, their loyalty and selflessness making them ideal sidekicks and heroes.

Today is National Dog Day, so here at Cineplex we're in full celebration mode. As you might have guessed, we're big on dogs here, so this is undoubtedly one of the most exciting days of the year for us. There are no shortage of amazing, adorable, and impressive dogs in movies, so we obviously had to mention some of our favourites to commemorate the day.

There are far too many movie dogs to include in this list, so »

5 Things to Know If You're Skipping Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

With the published version of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Cursed Child receiving such mixed reviews from diehard Potter fans, a growing number of people have decided to skip the script (which was written by playwright Jack Thorne with contributions and approval from Rowling) and continue with only their knowledge of the original series.
