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

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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. »

Watch Lookouts, A Highly Impressive Fantasy Short

20 September 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Inspired by the work of Jim Henson and featuring what appears to be all in-camera creature and visual FX, Lookouts is an impressive fantasy short from new director David Bousquet. Certainly it rivals anything we've seen from recent big budget fantasy films like Seventh Son so I hope this gets him some attention.   Lookouts was filmed in the misty overgrowth of Mendocino’s redwood forests and overall looks simply stunning.  Synopsis: On their final trial as village lookouts, a troop of young scouts are ambushed by the very creature they were hunting. After a violent battle the lone survivor, Pehn, escapes into the shadows of the Eyrewood, a mysterious and deadly forest that is home to all manner of wild creatures. The most horrifying of all is the...

Hell or High Water movie review: there will be blood

13 September 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take…

Alongside plenty of heist-movie humor and suspense is a bleak fatalism grounded in depressing reality and resignation to the miserable necessity it demands. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast, love the filmmakers

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

The phrase “come hell or high water” is almost always used in the hypothetical. As an exaggeration of the obstacles to be faced. “I will meet you for a drink after work come hell or high water,” and a printer jam or a late deadline is the level of catastrophe to be overcome.

But in Hell or High Water, the catastrophe has already happened. Hell and (metaphorical) high water have come and gone, and there’s still life to be gotten on with. It has happened in slow motion, but it’s been deliberate: a way of life, »

Five Important Lessons Hollywood Needs To Learn

27 August 2016 7:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Filmmakers think they know what we want, but do they really? Do the executives sitting behind big, round tables in the executive offices of the major movie studios really have their finger on the pulse of the public? In fact, it’s questionable if even some of the creative talent, such as big name directors really understand what the people want. (Looking at you, Zack Snyder!) Is the film industry headed in the right direction? Well, we’re offering some free advice to Hollywood today. Cinelinx is listing 5 lessons that the people behind the cameras and desks need to know.

 1…Big Blockbusters Are Becoming a Risky Proposition:

 Movies are becoming more and more expensive to make. Some can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce. When you consider all the additional costs (like advertising) and the fact that studios don’t get all the money a movie makes at the theater, »

The Last Word: Jeff Bridges on Dylan, the Dude and Surviving Box-Office Duds

26 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

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 »

‘Ben-Hur’: 5 Reasons the Biblical Epic is Summer’s Biggest Flop

21 August 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like “The Lone Ranger” or “Battleship,” “Ben-Hur” is one of those massive box office wipe-outs that defies easy comprehension. How could something go this disastrously wrong?

After all, 1959’s “Ben-Hur” was an Oscar-winning smash that remains beloved. Posters for the Charlton Heston epic proclaimed that the film offered “An entertainment experience of a lifetime,” and its chariot races are still considered to be a high-point in action choreography.

In contrast, the new “Ben-Hur” wasn’t even the “entertainment experience of the third weekend of August.” After debuting to a paltry $11.4 million, it is certain to go down as one of the summer’s biggest flops. “The Bfg” just breathed a huge sigh of relief.

It’s not for lack of trying. When it came to “Ben-Hur,” Paramount and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer didn’t stint on spectacle. The partners shelled out $100 million to recreate the arena and bring viewers back in time to »

6 Must-Watch Movies & TV Shows on HBO Now in August 2016: ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘The Aviator,’ and More

31 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

New Original Programming:

“Meet the Donors” (8/1)

“Dios, Inc.” - Season 1 Finale (8/5)

“Hitchcock/Truffaut” (8/8)

Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the La Rams” (8/10)

“El Negocio” -  Season 3 Premiere (8/12)

IndieWire Pick: “The Night Of” (Series Finale) (8/28)

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.

Can fantasy films escape Lord Of The Rings' shadow?

21 June 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

facebook

The world of J.R.R. Tolkien, brought to the screen by Peter Jackson, continues to cast a shadow over fantasy cinema...

One realm to rule them all. One realm to find them, one realm to bring them all and in the darkness bind them, in the land of Middle-earth where the shadows lie.

Now, far be it from me to ever describe Middle-earth as a dark shadow over anything, but for everyone else trying to make a mega-hit fantasy film, the very thought of competing with Peter Jackson’s adaptations of The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit must seem the equivalent of toppling literal evil on Earth.

It seems that any time a big-budget fantasy flick is released, they get sneered at as generic, lacking the richness of detail or story compared to Lord Of The Rings.

But if this sounds like I’m suggesting there »

Where Are the Women?: crunching the numbers

11 April 2016 1:41 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

• only 22% of 2015’s movies had female protagonists

• best and worst representations of women on film in 2015 (and the average Watw score for the year)

• critics are slightly more likely to rate a film highly if it represents women well

• mainstream moviegoers are not turned off by films with female protagonists

• movies that represent women well are just as likely to be profitable as movies that don’t, and are less risky as business propositions

The Where Are the Women? project was designed to drill deep down into the films of 2015 in order to determine how well — or how poorly — they represented women. The project has now come to its end, and you can examine the final ranking here. The ranking includes 270 films released in the Us, Canada, and the UK, in both limited and wide release (including every wide-release North American film and most of the UK wide-release films).

Fantasy epics, rom-coms, sports dramas: why your favourite genres could soon be extinct

15 March 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Gods Of Egypt’s poor performance may well have killed off the swords-and-sandal movie. But it’s far from the only Hollywood staple in mortal danger

Gods Of Egypt, the Gerard-Butler-starring fantasy epic that recently bombed at the box office was mainly notable for inspiring a brief spurt of Twitter outrage over the casting of Scottish and Australian actors as warring Egyptian deities. That rancour, however, obscured a no-less-intriguing story: the rumblings in the movie industry that, what with Gods Of Egypt’s worldwide gross of $72m on a budget of $140m, the fantasy epic had ceased to be a viable genre. In the wake of such duds as Wrath Of The Titans (which made $305m, almost $200m less than its predecessor, Clash Of The Titans) and box office flops Seventh Son and Vin Diesel’s Last Witch Hunter, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see a muscle-bound Hollywood actor in a loincloth again. »

Legendary Turns to Mary Parent to Steady Their Course

4 March 2016 2:16 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When a company runs into uneven box office, somebody usually gets the ax. In the case of Legendary Entertainment, which had a financing and producing role in many top-drawer DC comic-book franchises at Warner Bros. ("The Dark Knight"), CEO Thomas Tull wanted a stronger hand in being able to claim real production responsibility for the movies carrying his Legendary banner. When he couldn't come to terms with the studio, he left Warner Bros. and moved Legendary over to Universal. While Legendary is also partnering with Universal on such films as "Jurassic World," "Straight Outta Compton" and "Steve Jobs," the company's "Seventh Son," "Krampus," "Black Hat" and "Crimson Peak" were box office also-rans. Legendary was recently acquired by Chinese conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group Co.Now producer Mary Parent, who while she did not win Best Picture for "The Revenant," can boast three Oscar »

Razzie Awards: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and 'Fantastic Four' Tie for Worst Picture

28 February 2016 3:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

All five films up for Worst Picture at this year's 36th Annual Razzie Awards are big budget/high profile productions that have no excuse for being among the year's "berry" worst. And 2015's acting contenders include popular stars like Johnny Depp, Channing Tatum, and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, previous Oscar winners Gwyneth Paltrow, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, and such Razzie Repeat Offenders as Adam Sandler, Jennifer Lopez and Katherine Heigl. The winners were announced last night, with Fifty Shades of Grey and Fantastic Four tying for Worst Picture.

The choices for Worst Picture include Fifty Shades of Grey (2015's "Most Successful Bad Movie"), Fantastic Four (a nearly instant remake that flopped with both critics and movie-goers), Jupiter Ascending (the latest sci-fi fiasco from Andy Wachowski & Lana Wachowski), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (a box office hit despite its 95% negative rating at Rotten Tomatoes) and Adam Sandler's latest excuse for a movie, »

The Razzie Awards Are Go – Get The List Of Awful

28 February 2016 6:41 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Razzie Awards have actually managed to stake their claim on a part of the film world now, with their yearly release not going unnoticed by anyone, and this despite the fact that you too can vote for them, as long as you buy in.

This year was bound to be dominated by the biggest winners, because no movie managed more universal hatred than Fifty Shades of Grey (and those who hated it weren’t always waiting for the release), unless it was Fantastic Four and it’s director outrage kurfuffle (he managed his own award as well).

Many of the other awards were largely foregone conclusions as well, mainly because Kevin James, Adam Sandler, and The Chipmunks made movies… or whatever.

Still, worst movies and performances make for tricky voting. It’s hard to pick among the nominees sometimes, which explains the dual win for overall worst picture, but »
