‘Zootopia’ Stays on Top of Disc Charts

22 June 2016 11:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia” kept the No. 1 spot on the home video sales charts the week ended June 19, topping the Npd VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray disc chart.

The animated adventure had debuted in the top spot on both charts a week earlier and doubled the unit sales of the No. 2 debut of “London Has Fallen,” a Universal-distributed sequel to 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen.” The follow-up again stars Gerard Butler as a secret service agent protecting the president (Aaron Eckhart) from terrorists, but transplants the setting from the White House in the first movie to the city of London. “London Has Fallen” earned $62.5 million in U.S. theaters.

Fox’s “Deadpool” stayed at No. 3 and Paramount’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” dropped to No. 4.

Another newcomer, Paramount’s “10 Cloverfield Lane,” debuted at No. »

Recommended Discs & Deals: ’10 Cloverfield Lane, ’45 Years,’ ‘La Chienne,’ and More

14 June 2016 6:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

10 Cloverfield Lane (Dan Trachtenberg)

Forget the Cloverfield connection. The actors who were in this film didn’t even know what the title was until moments before the first trailer dropped. Producer J.J. Abrams used that branding as part of the wrapping for its promotional mystery box, but the movie stands perfectly alone from 2008’s found-footage monster picture. Hell, 10 Cloverfield Lane perhaps doesn’t even take place within the same fictional universe as that film — although a friend asked if it’s secretly a Super 8 sequel, and, honestly, you could think of it as one without contradicting anything in either movie. Whether the Cloverfield name fills you with wariness or enthusiasm, it would be unwise to burden Dan Trachtenberg‘s film with such prejudices. – Dan S. (full review)

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary. Though highly accomplished, Weekend nevertheless suffered from a tendency towards commenting on itself as a gay issues film, which at times overrode the otherwise compelling realism. Despite treating material arguably even more underrepresented in cinema – senior relationships – Haigh avoids this same self-reflexive pitfall in 45 Years, pulling off an incisive and emotionally ensnaring tour de force. – Giovanni M.C. (full review)

Here Comes Mr. Jordan (Alexander Hall)

A sophisticated supernatural Hollywood comedy whose influence continues to be felt, Here Comes Mr. Jordan stars the eminently versatile Robert Montgomery as a working-class boxer and amateur aviator whose plane crashes in a freak accident. He finds himself in heaven but is told, by a wry angel named Mr. Jordan (Claude Rains), that his death was a clerical error, and that he can return to Earth by entering the body of a corrupt (and about-to-be-murdered) financier—whose soul could use a transplant. Nominated for seven Oscars (it won two) and the inspiration for a sequel with Rita Hayworth and two remakes, Alexander Hall’s effervescent Here Comes Mr. Jordan is comic perfection. – Criterion.com

La Chienne (Jean Renoir)

Jean Renoir’s ruthless love triangle tale, his second sound film, is a true precursor to his brilliantly bitter The Rules of the Game, displaying all of the filmmaker’s visual genius and fully imbued with his profound humanity. Michel Simon cuts a tragic figure as an unhappily married cashier and amateur painter who becomes so smitten with a prostitute that he refuses to see the obvious: that she and her pimp boyfriend are taking advantage of him. Renoir’s elegant compositions and camera movements carry this twisting narrative—a stinging commentary on class and sexual divisions—to an unforgettably ironic conclusion. – Criterion.com

The 11 Best Movies Of 2016 You Still Haven't Seen

8 June 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With the year of 2016 almost at the halfway point, it.s a good time to start looking back at some of the films we may have missed this year. Seeing as the off-season is getting busier and busier with every year, more modest to wonderful hits are getting buried by those that would steal their thunder. For every Deadpool or Captain America: Civil War, there.s at least one other flick that.s not getting the love they deserve. That said, keep your eyes peeled for the following 11 flicks that are well worth your time, and just might be hitting a Redbox kiosk near you in the near future.

From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »

Movie Review – Sing Street (2016)

20 May 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sing Street, 2016.

Directed by John Carney.

Starring Lucy BoyntonMaria Doyle KennedyAidan GillenJack ReynorKelly Thornton and Ferdia Walsh-Peelo.

Synopsis:

A group of teenage boys form a band in Dublin, in the 1980’s, to get away from the trials and tribulations of their young lives…

The 1980’s is the current craze. Both Eddie the Eagle and Sing Street take great pride in harking back to those halcyon days of big hair, electro-pop and cups of tea (Even this weeks X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the same period). The loss of Prince, David Bowie and Michael Jackson recently, reminds us how all three existed together in the 1980’s. In 2016, we don’t even have one artist that comes close to these titans of music. Was there something special happening in this era that, only now, we can pick apart? Sing Street recreates a world that’s more than a »

The director of Once, Begin Again and Sing Street talks to us about his new film, getting films noticed, and Hollywood...

Well, Sing Street is just great. The new movie from writer-director John Carney, it tells the story of a young Irish teenager by the name of Cosmo, who – long story short – sets up a band to impress a girl. Yet that sells a funny, nerdy and quite brilliant film short.

Director John Carney – off the back of Once and Begin Again – made the movie. And he spared us some time for a chat about it…

Huge congratulations on Sing Street, which is one of our favourite movies of the year. It’s interesting, though, that it opens opposite a not-very-good X-Men movie this week, and they’re going head to head!

Oh great! [Laughs] That’s like Bernie Sanders and Trump!

The Family Fang movie review: family bites

10 May 2016 12:35 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Strikingly original, a truly rare pleasure in a cinematic environment clogged with cookie-cutter films. Jason Bateman and Nicole Kidman are splendid. I’m “biast” (pro): big Jason Bateman fan

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

Jason Bateman’s second film as director opens with a sequence that is one of the most provocative introductions to a movie I’ve ever seen. I am not going to tell you what it entails, not even in the barest outlines, because watching it unfold and feeling wonderfully bewildered at where it goes is a truly rare pleasure in a cinematic environment clogged with cookie-cutter films. And once it’s over, you’re left with an even more delicious sense of having absolutely no idea what sort of story this is setting up.

I’m so glad »
