The 2014 Sad Bastard Awards: 'Mockingjay,' 'Oitnb,' 'Game of Thrones,' Grammys

13 December 2014 1:12 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Moe from "The Simpsons." All of Damien Rice's albums. "Winnie the Pooh's" Eyeore. Steve Buscemi's Seymour in "Ghost World." Sad bastards are sometimes the leads, like Matthew McConaughey's Rusty in "True Detective" or Hazel in "Fault in Our Stars." Sometimes they're just the whipping boy like Philip Seymour Hoffman in "The Big Lebowski" or the stricken Ellinor in "The Knick." And sometimes they're not even characters: they're just Drake. Sad sacks deserve their own recognition, because we kind of love them due to, in spite of and aside from their sinking-rock sulk. So as part of our Year-End roundup from 2014, we've decided to recognize the sourest, most unfortunate characters in TV movies and even music: The 2014 HitFix Sad Bastard Awards. Check out who we picked from "Mad Men," "Rectify," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay," the Grammys, "Game of Thrones," "Orange Is The New Black" and more. »

'The Little Prince': The Prettiest Animated Movie of 2015?

10 December 2014 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It appears the 2015 adaptation of "The Little Prince," the classic children's book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery, has a bit of a twist: It's about a little girl's interactions with the book itself. Call Sartre, because that is some French meta business. Check out the trailer below. This is the French trailer; look forward to an English version with vocal efforts from Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Jeff Bridges, Paul Giamatti, and Benicio del Toro. We'll get to the stunning animation in a second, but I love the strange connection between the protagonist and the prince in this trailer. Reminds me of how Disney presented "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" as a dive into an A.A. Milne book. Actually, there's a second Pooh Bear parallel here: The Keane song "Somewhere Only We Know" was also used in the trailer for the last Winnie the Pooh movie. Hm! Look »

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred.

A Holiday Hibernation

23 November 2014 8:11 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Just as Matthew McConaughey slept through the trip to Jupiter in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, sometimes we just want to skip to the end. With that in mind — and more importantly as a break for our extremely hard working editorial team — Film School Rejects is going into a state of suspended animation — or as Winnie the Pooh might call it, hibernation — over the next week and will return on Monday, December 1st. This means no daily updates for the next week to give our team some extra time to relax and enjoy time with their families. If you can’t live without us (aw shucks…) there are plenty of great recent features to read and when we get back, we’ll surely be updating you with all kinds of news. Plus, it’s possible that someone will sneak back in the office to post something about the Jurassic World trailer that debuts on Thanksgiving. Need »

Ida director Pawel Pawlikowski on Jean-Luc Godard: "Some of the freedom I took with the continuity, which is trying to shoot the film in tableaux…" Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard hosted a reception and screening at the Crosby Street Hotel in New York of Pawel Pawlikowski's Ida, which stars Agata Trzebuchowska, Agata Kulesza and Dawid Ogrodnik. As Jake Gyllenhaal scrambled off, I spoke with Pawel about the freedom Jean-Luc Godard's Vivre Sa Vie, starring Anna Karina, gave him; Krzysztof Kieslowski's Decalogue; Odysseus; Milos Forman's Loves Of A Blonde and Fireman's Ball; fairytales with Jean-Pierre Dardenne; Luc Dardenne and Yoko Ono; Paul Celan's Fugue Of Death, until we ended with the tale of Winnie the Pooh.

"Winnie the Pooh" Too Indecent For Kids?

23 November 2014 8:29 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Beloved children's character Winnie the Pooh has been banned from being used as the public face of a local playground in the small Polish town of Tuszyn.

News.com.au reports that a leaked tape of a town council meeting indicated that council members were unhappy with Pooh being used as a figurehead.

Not for any commercial or copyright reasons though, but rather because of the honey-obsessed characters dress sense, sexual identity and lack of genitalia. One member called Pooh a hermaphrodite, one thinks a half-naked bear is an inappropriate symbol for young children, and one went so far as to suggest Pooh's creator A.A. Milne castrated his character "with a razor blade".

Understandably local residents asked about the issue think it's ridiculous and a waste of time, one man saying "Winnie the Pooh was a bear with low intellect, and unfortunately, this is also evident in those who are concerned with this topic. »

Town Bans Winnie the Pooh for Being Half-Naked

23 November 2014 7:34 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Lawmakers in the town of Tuszyn, Poland have voted to ban Winnie the Pooh from representing a playground, due to the bear's lack of clear gender identity and a propensity for going pants-less. Officials at a council meeting claimed that Winnie the Pooh is of "dubious sexuality" and is "inappropriately dressed" to be around children, given that the bear is "half-naked." "The problem with that bear is it doesn't have a complete wardrobe," said council person Ryszard Cichy. "It is half-naked, which is wholly inappropriate for children." Another official said that Winnie the Pooh "doesn't wear underpants because it doesn't have a sex. It's a hermaphrodite." Councilperson Hanna Jachimska criticized Winnie-the-Pooh author A.A. Milne for having "cut [Pooh's] testicles off with a razor blade because he had a problem with his identity." It had not been decided which character would instead represent the playground. »

Dennis O’Neil: The Tao of Funny Books

20 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Could we have heard that name correctly? Sounded like the guy on the television said that a nasty killer was named “Szasz.” Well sir, I knew of only two Szaszes. One was an upstate New York psychiatrist with some controversial ideas, and the other was a comic book character. Since the television program I was watching when I heard the name (I did hear it, didn’t I?) was based on comic books, it seemed logical that the teevee folk were paying some sort of homage to our fictitious hero. But our Szasz wasn’t a killer; our “Szasz” was the birth name of the guy who later called himself “Vic Sage” and later still adopted the identity of a masked vigilante, The Question.

Why call him Szasz? Um… I liked the name. I’d seen it somewhere, probably in the New York Times, and when my man Vic needed (another) moniker, »

Box Office: ‘Big Hero 6′ Races Past ‘Interstellar’ With $56.2 Million

9 November 2014 7:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Family audiences lifted “Big Hero 6″ over “Interstellar” and the fanboys and girls who turned out in force for Christopher Nolan’s space adventure in one of the fiercest box office match ups of the year.

Big Hero 6″ topped the charts with $56.2 million from 3,761 locations, continuing Walt Disney Animation Studios’ recent hot streak. After the success of “Frozen” and “Wreck It Ralph,” the division is no longer the also-run to Pixar, its corporate cousin.

“They have been on quite the roll,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s distribution chief. “They’re in a creative renaissance.”

Interstellar” scored a sizable $50 million from 3,561 locations, according to studio estimates. If “Interstellar’s” numbers hold, it will mark only the fourth time in history that two films have debuted to more than $50 million at the domestic box office, and each one of the previous occasions took place in the summer when ticket sales are at their highest. »

Review: Big Hero 6

7 November 2014 6:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tim here. Something feels unmissably “off” about Big Hero 6, the 54th film in the Walt Disney Animation feature canon. It’s a film that wants to offer a little something for everybody, and succeeds, but this comes at the cost of feeling erratic and imbalanced, and curiously adrift. By now, we’re used to superhero origin stories that use up all the oxygen on setting up the heroes’ powers and briefly sketching in their personalities, but even by that standard, as Big Hero 6 started to move into what was unmistakably its endgame, I found myself sinking into outright dismay that this inconsequential scrap against a nondescript bad guy with wicked plans barely large than a city block was actually where the movie was headed, after its strong opening.

But that’s all part of the scheme: the filmmakers (including directors Don Hall, of the 2011 Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams, »

‘Big Hero 6′ Edging ‘Interstellar’ at U.S. Box Office, Could Hit $66 Million Weekend

7 November 2014 2:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Big Hero 6″ has taken the lead spot at this weekend’s box office, heading for a finish as high as $66 million — enough to top a still-impressive launch in the $56 million range by Paramount’s “Interstellar,” according to Friday estimates.

Early numbers show both titles performing up to lofty expectations with “Interstellar” winning Friday with $20 million, followed by around $18 million for “Big Hero 6.” Saturday projections were showing “Hero” jumping to $28 million with “Interstellar” coming in around $22 million.

The lowest estimates for “Big Hero 6″ were coming in between $55 million and $60 million so the race could turn out to be a nail-biter by the end of the weekend.

Both “Big Hero 6″ and “Interstellar” have budgets of $165 million; both have impressive critical reception with “Big Hero” at 90% and “Interstellar” at 72% on Rotten Tomatoes; and both are opening at over 3,500 U.S. locations.
