Divergent review: girls just wanna do everything

17 April 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

No, it’s not wildly different than other science fiction, hero’s journey, and adventure movies. Sometimes we call such stories archetypal. Mythic, even. I’m “biast” (pro): I am eager for movies — especially genre movies — with female protagonists

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

Now see that, Hollywood! That wasn’t so hard, was it? To make a movie about a young woman doing cool kickass stuff and being the master of her own destiny… it didn’t sting too terribly much, did it, now? It looks like she might even get to save the world or something by the time the last of three-books-turned-into-four-movies comes around, and that won’t hurt, will it?

I hear the cries: “But Hunger Games!” Yes, Hunger Games. And? If there’s room enough in the »

Chris Pratt & Anna Faris Are 'Vacation Friends' for Director Steve Pink

26 March 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In case you didn't know, The House Bunny and Scary Movie franchise star Anna Faris and Guardians of the Galaxy lead Chris Pratt are married in real life. That bit of information makes their segment in the awful Movie 43 a little weird, but whatever. Now the couple are poised to redeem themselves from that misguided team-up as Deadline reports Fox has picked up a new comedy spec script called Vacation Friends with Pratt and Faris lined up to star. In addition, Hot Tub Time Machine and About Last Night remake director Steve Pink will be at the helm of the comedy hoping to shoot later this year. More below! The film follows a crazy, partying couple who makes friends with a straight-laced, settled couple while on vacation in Mexico. Despite their differences, they have a great time together. But when they return home with hopes of having more fun with the same couple, »

Nymphomaniac review: behold the alien Woman

20 March 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women. Completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of Lars von Trier

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

In a cinematic environment in which women were depicted, overall, as fully rounded human beings with a wide range of sexual expression available to them without judgment or disapproval, Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac would still be a disgusting, degrading portrait of a terrible person that is completely unfun, unpleasant, unerotic, and unenlightening. But in the cinematic environment we actually have, it is a salacious yet also tedious portrayal of a woman who would appear to confirm all the nastiest stereotypes about women: that they sexually prey upon and sexually manipulate men purely for the power rush of it, »

10 Frightful, Forgettable February Films

6 March 2014 8:12 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

February has come and gone in the blink of an eye, and once again the month exhibited one of the most peculiar phenomena in the world – no, not a leap year, but cramming the the largest number of terrible movies into the shortest month possible. Peter Travers is, of course, on the case, breaking out his prized scum bucket to dispose of the worst of the worst, and for everyone's sake he's limited himself to just ten awful February films.

First into the scum bucket is Vampire Academy, which Travers »

'Wolf of Wall Street,' 'American Hustle' Lead MTV Movie Award Nominees

6 March 2014 6:43 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Leonardo DiCaprio will get another shot at a best actor trophy, though this one will be in the shape of a golden bucket of popcorn: The actor is up for Best Male Performance at this year's MTV Movie Awards for his turn in Wolf of Wall Street. Of course, he'll have to go through Matthew McConaughey again, who's up for Dallas Buyers Club – the role he just won an Oscar for – though if DiCaprio plays his cards right he might pick up Best Shirtless Performance.

'Movie 43' and 'After Earth' win big at the Razzie Awards

3 March 2014 1:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) "Movie 43" and "After Earth" were the big “winners” at the Razzies last night, with each film taking home three trophies from the awards ceremony that “honors” the worst movies of 2013. "Movie 43", which featured Hugh Jackman, Dennis Quaid, Kate Winslet, Seth MacFarlane, Chris Pratt, Emma Stone and many more big Hollywood stars in various short films being pitched to studios by a washed-up producer, took home the award for Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Director — or directors, as the film had 13. "After Earth", the science fiction film directed by M. Night Shyamalan that starred Will and Jaden Smith, took home the awards for Worst Lead Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo for the father-son duo. Tyler Perry won his eighth Razzie for Worst Actress for "A Madea Christmas", where he once again performed in drag, while Kim Kardashian took the Worst Supporting Actress statue for »

Sunday night was Oscar night in Hollywood. Jared Leto took home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in Dallas Buyers Club while Lupita Nyong'o won Best Supporting Actress for 12 Years a Slave.

Jennifer Lawrence may be contemplating a year off from the Hollywood scene but she couldn't leave us without staying true to her reputation as least graceful actress to receive an Oscar nomination. This will be the second year in a row that she's taken a tumble at the awards. Upon her glamorous arrival she stepped out of the car and tripped over an orange traffic cone. Oh JLaw, only you can make a tumble look so good.

Forget the Oscars, here are your 2014 Razzie Award winners

3 March 2014 7:48 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

12 Years A Slave is your 2014 Best Picture according to the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts, and Sciences, but the real winner is Movie 43. The ensemble sketch comedy film starring everyone from Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet to Naomi Watts and Halle Berry was a commercial and critical disaster and pretty unfunny to boot. But, it can now enter the annals of movie history as one of the worst of all time. Movie 43 was up against stiff competition that also included After Earth, Grown Ups 2, »

The Razzies 2014 – Winners (Losers?) List

3 March 2014 4:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

You know, the Oscars weren’t the only major awards to be handed out this past weekend! On Saturday, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards were announced in a ceremony at IgnitedSpaces in Hollywood. While the Academy Awards celebrate the very best that Hollywood has to offer, these make a point of highlighting the worst.

While many expected Grown Ups 2 to walk away with the majority of the prestigious Golden Raspberry statues, it was in fact the even worse Movie 43 which would end up the big winner (or should that be loser?) of the night.

Will Smith and his son Jaden would end up taking away prizes for both “Worst Actor” and “Worst Supporting Actor”, a sharp contrast to eight years ago when both were praised for their performances in The Pursuit of Happyness. Many of his fans still right believe that the older Smith has an Oscar in his future, »

Meme: Rufus Wainwright’s Coming Out Was Rough, Jennifer Hudson Got Her Start In Gay Bars, NFL Discussing Ban on F-word

Air Force troops do drag show in Okinawa, ending the stigma of HIV inside the gay community, Will Smith a Razzie favorite

Alan Cumming has acquired a script from activist and my friend David Mixner and Rich Burns. Dunes of Overveen is the “true life story of Willem Arondeus and the bloody underground uprising of artists in Amsterdam during WWII against occupying Nazi forces.”

While Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has been gone for a few years, and we’ve seen weddings on bases and tearful homecomings, Lgb troops at Kadena Air Base in Okinawa recently performed in drag to support their new chapter of OutServe-sldn. “We didn’t think there was much of a desire for an event like this on the island but it has actually blown up. We ended up selling 400 tickets in 10 days.”

Jennifer Hudson says that she really got her start performing in gay bars. »

Kim Kardashian won her first Razzie Award for 'Tyler Perry's Temptation'

2 March 2014 8:32 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

It's Oscar Sunday, and Kim Kardashian is a winner! But not of an Academy Award. No, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star has won her very first Razzie Award.

Kardashian is 2014's Worst Supporting Actress at the Golden Raspberry Award thanks to her turn in "Tyler Perry's Temptation." Not to kick her while she's down, but has Perry seen "Kuwk"? She can barely act as herself, let alone as someone else.

The Razzie Awards began in 1980 to honor the worst films of the year. The winners are announced the day before the Academy Awards.

Other 2014 winners included "Movie 43" (Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay), Jaden and Will Smith for "After Earth" (Worst Actor and Supporting Actor, respectively, Worst Screen Combo), Tyler Perry in drag (Worst Actress, for "A Madea Christmas") and "The Lone Ranger" (Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel). »

Like Father, Like Son: Will Smith And Jaden Smith Sweep "Razzie" Awards

2 March 2014 5:05 PM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

 

Will Smith was "honored" as Worst Supporting Actor for his role in the bomb sci-fi flick After Earth at the annual Razzie Awards, designed to celebrate the worst achievements in filmmaking. His co-conspirator, son Jaden Smith, did not escape recognition, winning Worst Actor in a Leading Role. Jaden and dad were also accorded Worst Screen Duo for the film which earned scorned from both critics and the public. Poppa Smith is generally immune to critical notices but After Earth was seen as a blatant, expensive attempt to build a career for his son. It lost mega bucks at the boxoffice. The sketch comedy Movie 43 also won numerous Razzies. For the complete list click here.  »

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa review: male privilege on parade

2 March 2014 1:59 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An unfunny “comedy” full of cheap crudity and punches down at targets who don’t deserve it. For some movies there should be hazard pay. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hate this Jackass shit

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

I watched Bad Grandpa, the very idea of which nauseates me, only because it is nominated for an Oscar (for Best Hair and Makeup), and I was being obsessively completeist about the Oscars this year. As I’ve noted elsewhere, this is this first time ever that I’ve seen every nominee in every single category, and for that measure of professional pride, enduring this unfunny “comedy” full of cheap crudity and punches down at targets who don’t deserve it was worth it. But for some movies there should be hazard pay, and this is one of them. Jackass Johnny Knoxville »

Razzie Awards Crap All Over Movie 43, After Earth

2 March 2014 12:47 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After Earth and Movie 43 might have earned the titles of "Worst" movies of the year . thanks to receiving "honors" at the Razzies on Saturday evening . but the big "story" (I.ll stop with the quotation marks, I promise) is the complete shutout of Adam Sandler.s atrocious Grown Ups 2 at the event. Wait, does that mean that Sandler.s sequel is actually good? Let.s not get carried away, though EW.com does note that Sandler.s sequel, directed by Dennis Dugan, avoided picking up any Razzies despite racking up the most nominations across the entire field. How does a film Dominate the nominations, then lay a goose egg on "wins?" Shoot, more quotation marks. It.s hard not to use them when talking about the Razzies! Anyway, the winners on the evening at the 34th annual Razzie Awards were: Worst Picture Movie 43 Worst Actor Jaden Smith »
