2016’s films ranked

20 January 2017 1:20 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.

How the awards season has evolved

19 January 2017 6:59 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Time for something a bit fun and potentially a little bit embarrassing for me. What could it be? Well, looking back on how the season has evolved by checking my initial Oscar predictions for this year, of course! In past years, this has been occasionally cringe inducing, while sometimes it’s actually been a point of pride. This year, spoiler alert, it’s somewhere in between, which is probably where it should be. That’s the nature of the beast though, as it’s impossible to know what will play during an upcoming precursor season. You basically just either back an obvious prestige picture or try and pick out one of the promising things at the Sundance Film Festival. I mixed and matched this past time, to mostly solid effect. Below you will see my first set of Academy Award predictions, which you can compare to my most recent ones. »

The Light Between Oceans: Watch Alicia Vikander Nail This Scene in One Take

18 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Alicia Vikander is a natural. In E! News' exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures' The Light Between Oceans, Vikander's vulnerability produces one of the most sweeping cinematic moments of 2016. According to director Derek Cianfrance, she wasn't initially allowed on set, as he wanted to capture her raw emotion after arriving on Janus Rock. While her co-star Michael Fassbender was familiarizing himself with the set, painting the house and surveying the lush landscape, Vikander "was in a hotel room somewhere for the first week, just wondering what we had been doing," Cianfrance says in a featurette. "We brought her to set one morning in the dark, »

The sweeping romantic film, Disney/Dreamworks Pictures’  The Light Between Oceans, arrives on Digital HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on Jan. 24th.

The timeless tale of love, relationships, and impossible choices is a must for any of lush, beautiful romantic movies. This  release includes never-before-seen bonus features, including a documentary which reveals director Derek Cianfrance’s unique approach that allowed the all-star cast to embody their characters and examine the power of love; a historical look at New Zealand’s Cape Campbell Lighthouse that serves as Janus Rock, a key element in Stedman’s novel; and insightful and in-depth audio commentary led by Cianfrance.

Berlin: Lionsgate to Handle International Rights for Participant Movies

10 January 2017 11:39 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a pre-Berlin Film Festival move, Participant Media has selected Lionsgate to represent the international rights to Participant’s upcoming slate of narrative feature films and select documentaries.

The deal will cover Participant films in all territories outside of North America. Lionsgate will initially introduce two Participant films to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin next month: Jose Padilha’s “Entebbe” and Rupert Wyatt’s sci-fi thriller “Captive State.”

Entebbe” stars Rosamund Pike, Daniel Bruhl, and Eddie Marsan. “Captive State” is set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after it has been occupied by an extraterrestrial force.
