2016’s films ranked

13 January 2017 2:47 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

‘Blair Witch’ Tops Among New DVD Releases

11 January 2017 5:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With few new releases in the first week of the new year, the top five disc sellers are unchanged from the previous week.

Sony Pictures’ “The Magnificent Seven” enjoyed a third week at No. 1 on the Npd VideoScan disc sales chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales, for the week ended Jan. 8.

Warner’s “Suicide Squad” again finished second, Universal Pictures’ “The Secret Life of Pets” remained in third place, and two more Warner titles held flat at No. 4 and No. 5: “Sully” and “Storks.”

The highest-ranking newcomer was Lionsgate’s “Blair Witch,” the belated third installment in the “found footage” horror franchise that began with 1999’s “The Blair Witch Project.” The film, with a domestic gross of $20.8 million, debuted at No. 7 on the overall disc sales chart, behind Paramount’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” which again finished the week at No. 6.

On the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Leads The Razzie Nominations Shortlist

7 January 2017 12:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we head into the thick of awards season, it’s time to celebrate all the incredible films that 2016 brought us. La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Deadpool and Arrival will no doubt find themselves on the lips of many moviegoers over the next few weeks, while talent like Amy Adams, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Adam Driver and Denzel Washington, among others, will also start picking up some serious buzz.

But, as the best of the best start to take up most of the spotlight, there’s another another awards ceremony gearing up to get underway, and it’ll be celebrating very different types of movies and actors/actresses. We are, of course, referring to the Razzie Awards, which shine a light on the worst that the year had to offer. From the biggest losers to performances that were so dull you couldn’t stand to watch them, »

‘Mostly Sunny’ Exclusive Clip: American Adult Film Actress Reinvents Herself as a Bollywood Star

6 January 2017 9:25 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Adult film actress Sunny Leone, a.k.a Karenjit Kaur Vohra, has more than 100 million fans, over 20 million followers on social media, and is India’s most Googled celebrity. But the new documentary “Mostly Sunny” chronicles Leone’s journey from a Canadian-born, American bred adult film actress into one of Bollywood’s biggest stars. The film exposes the conflict between traditional cultural values held by immigrant parents and the lifestyle choices made by their children  within the influence of Western society. Determined to succeed as a mainstream actress, Sunny is unapologetic as she challenges the modern notions of independence, celebrity and feminism while forcing India to confront its paradoxical relationship with sex. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Lionsgate is releasing Adam Wingard’s Blair Witch on multiple formats this Tuesday, and for those of you who enjoy monster movies (and Steve Guttenberg), Anchor Bay is unleashing 2 Lava 2 Lantula on DVD, too.

Other releases for January 3rd include The Girl, The Shelter, Zombie Massacre 2, American Beast, Fire Twister, and Ouija 3 (which has nothing to do with the hugely popular film series from Universal Studios and Blumhouse).

2 Lava 2 Lantula (Anchor Bay Entertainment, DVD)
