Canada 2013 in Review: Hollywood Stays Strong, Rob Ford Dominates Headlines

30 December 2013 2:02 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Canada's biggest media export of 2013 was probably Toronto mayor Rob Ford, who became a worldwide sensation and the constant butt of jokes on late night TV in the U.S. for admitting to smoking crack cocaine and binge drinking while in office. On the movie front, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, a Canada-Germany co-production, had a lackluster opening, but was still the best-performing Canadian movie at the local multiplex. Kim Nguyen's War Witch was Canada's nomination for the best foreign language film category Oscar, but failed to make the short list for the award. And

Year in Review: Keeping Up with Katniss

29 December 2013 7:30 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If you hadn’t heard, 2013 is the year that a small indie production called The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, starring little-known commercial actress Jennifer Lawrence (am I saying that right?) stormed into theaters. In truth, the massive-scale production, bolstered by a months-long marketing campaign (step into a Subway sometime for a District 12 themed sandwich, because nothing screams “we’re actually starving” like footlongs), has earned over $600M worldwide to date, and is expected to reach $800M by the end of its theatrical run. This is also the year that everyone and their producer attempted to find the next Hunger Games franchise and fell completely, utterly flat. Line ‘em up: The Host, Beautiful Creatures, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters and Ender’s Game all tried their hand at making the jump from page to screen, but nothing achieved anything near what Catching Fire created, both »

Year In Review: The 13 Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Films of 2013

28 December 2013 11:39 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

This year promised a number of great original science fiction movies from Hollywood, and then it turned out most of them weren’t even good let alone great — the sort that left us with way too many unanswered questions regarding their plot holes. Meanwhile, in the fantasy genre, we continued to see the studios churning out one Ya adaptation after another in the hopes of it being the next Hunger Games (or still the next Harry Potter or Twilight or even Star Wars in the case of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and ironically having no clue how to find the *magic* in the appeal of these kinds of stories. And of course there’s the ever-growing subgenre of superhero movies, which really only disappointed this year because they arrived in the wake of 2012′s The Avengers, not simply because most of the output was sequels (Iron Man 3; Thor: The Dark World; The Wolverine) that »

What should be on the Oscar shortlist for best song?

17 December 2013 4:21 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The longlist for the Best Song category in the Oscars has been announced – so what should make the cut?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced the longlist of songs for its Best Original Song Oscar in 2014, ahead of the nominations for the shortlist on January 14.

The list features 75 songs written for movies over the last year, with artists including Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, U2, Coldplay, Kings Of Leon, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and M83 all making the grade. Pharrell is included for his hit Happy, currently in the top 5 of the UK charts, which appears in Despicable Me 2, and other animated films make up a large proportion of those selected: Epic, Turbo, The Croods, Planes, Escape From Planet Earth and Monsters University all also get a mention.

The Great Gatsby, with its bold and incongruous soundtrack of modern musicians, gets five mentions for songs by Jay Z, »

75 Tunes Contend in Oscar Song Category

16 December 2013 3:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled a roster of 75 songs that are eligible for Oscar, which includes a lineup of powerhouse performers including Beyonce (“Epic”), Lana Del Rey and Jay-z (both for “The Great Gatsby”), Ed Sheeran (“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”), Taylor Swift (“One Chance”), U2 (“Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”) and Pharrell Williams (“Despicable Me 2″).

Members of the music branch will vote in order of preference; the five  receiving the highest number of votes will become the nominations. Nominations will be announced Jan. 16, with awards handed out March 2.

While there is a stellar lineup of contenders, the music branch has sometimes seemed to avoid big names. In addition, songs that are used over closing credits seem to have a disadvantage compared to songs that are performed during the film, since voters will look at clips of the song use.

New DVD Blu-ray: 'The Wolverine,' 'The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,' 'Argo: Extended Edition''

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"The Wolverine"

What's It About? Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is more human than X-Man in this stand-alone film that takes place in Japan. Not only has he lost his powers, but his memories of Jean Grey are driving him cuckoo. Which is too bad, because he's still got to fight off loads of gangsters, ninjas, and other slick villains -- including one green-eyed baddie from the past.

Why We're In: Director James Mangold ("Walk the Line," "3:10 to Yuma") balances fantastic action with a more serious sensibility that recalls samurai films of yore. Plus, you don't need to be an X-pert X-Men fan to enjoy this movie.

'Wolverine', 'Nashville' Criterion and 'Mortal Instruments' On DVD and Blu-ray This Week

3 December 2013 7:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Nashville (Criterion Collection) I still need to dig through the special features on Criterion's new release of Robert Altman's Nashville, but I have already watched the film and this new 2K restoration looks great, just as you would expect it to. Included is a 2000 audio commentary featuring Altman and most notably a newly produced, 71-minute making of documentary featuring interviews with the likes of Ronee Blakley, Keith Carradine, Michael Murphy, Allan Nicholls, Lily Tomlin, screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury, assistant director Alan Rudolph and Altman's widow, Kathryn Reed Altman. Of course, that's not all, but suffice to say it's a release that has fans of the film taken care of.

The Wolverine I've seen a lot of people on Twitter talking about how the extended edition of The Wolverine is incredibly bloody. What I haven't seen anyone saying is that actually makes it any better, because this was not a good movie. »
