Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)

26 September 2017 10:28 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Back in 2014 when Matthew Vaughn was adapting lesser-known material for the screen, in the comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, expectations were not exactly sky high. Few really knew what to expect from Kingsman: The Secret Service but even fewer expected the film to be the success it was. Blending a stylish cinematic aesthetic with Brosnan era techno thrills and Moore era comedy, Kingsman boasted crazily inventive action scenes, charismatic comedy that nailed the right balance of homage and parody and featured some enthused performances by a cast fully committed to the spy caper chaos. Naturally, a sequel was guaranteed but as we all know, following up a sleeper hit or big screen novelty can be a difficult task (see: Monsters: The Dark Continent, Piranha 3Dd, Now You See Me 2 and Bad Santa 2). So, has Kingsman: The Golden Circle managed it?

Well, no, it hasn’t »

Daniel Radcliffe Strives to Survive the Wilds in Exclusive ‘Jungle’ Poster

6 September 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Following his iconic, long-running performance as Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe has proven to be a pretty adventurous actor. Two years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 hit theaters, Radcliffe appeared as a burgeoning demon in Horns, played romantic foil to Zoe Kazan in What If, and portrayed a young Allen Ginsberg in Kill Your Darlings. Last year, he had two of his best performances in Imperium and Swiss Army Man, in which he played a farting corpse opposite Paul Dano, Kazan's off-screen partner. With the exceptions of the dreadful Now You See Me 2 … »

Lionsgate Earnings Beat Projections Thanks to TV Profits, ‘La La Land’

8 August 2017 1:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate’s first quarter earnings easily beat Wall Street projections thanks to profits at its television operation and the home entertainment performance of “La La Land.”

Revenues for the three-month period ending in June topped out at $1.01 billion, up from $553.5 million in the same time frame in 2016. Earnings per share for the quarter were 52 cents. Analysts had been looking for revenues of $996 million and earnings of 33 cents a share. Net income came in at $174 million, a big leap from the $1.3 million Lionsgate reported in the year-ago quarter.

The fiscal snapshot included the company’s sale of its equity interest in cable channel Epix, which resulted in a $201 million gain.

War for the Planet of the Apes movie review: empathy for the ape

10 July 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… A triumph of science fiction storytelling: a sweeping tale of mythological scope told with astonishing FX wizardry that brings emotion and intelligence to nonhuman people. I’m “biast” (pro): love this series

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

A quick recap. First there was 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in which sad scientist James Franco accidentally created a genius ape in Caesar, and his colleague mad scientists accidentally created and released a supervirus that killed most of humanity. Then there was 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, set 10 years later, in which the uneasy detente between the growing new civilization of smart apes and a small cluster of surviving humans was shattered by mistrust and unhealable pain on both sides.

The 25 Best Romances of the 21st Century, From ‘Carol’ to ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’

7 July 2017 11:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Eat your heart out, moviegoers. Everyone loves a good love story whether they admit it or not, and the 21st century has brought us more than a few couples worth rooting for: Clementine and Joel, Ennis and Jack, Joaquin and his computer. Often these unions are unconventional or hidden in the guise of something more high-concept — straightforward romances are so 20th century — but at the end of the day, we all want to see a happy ending for our smitten lovers.

Our list goes all over the map, from the mainstream maestro Nancy Meyers to international masters like Wong Kar-Wai. Some were blockbuster hits (“Twilight,” “The Proposal”); others have hardly been seen stateside at all (Lee Chang-dong’s 2002 “Oasis”). However, all of them illustrate some essential element of love, from falling to longing and all the sticky bits in between.

While the zeitgeist has skewed toward the melancholy, that’s »

Critics Pick the Worst Movies They’ve Ever Reviewed

19 June 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. 

This week’s question: “The Book of Henry” has been assailed by critics. But let’s look beyond this particular reviled new release. What’s the worst movie you’ve ever reviewed?

Alissa Wilkinson (@alissamarie), Vox

It’s unfortunately not even a contest: “God’s Not Dead 2,” which I reviewed for Flavorwire and then wrote about it further for Thrillist. (The first movie is actually far worse, but I didn’t review it.) They’re actually not the worst-made movies I’ve seen, but as a Christian and a film critic, I find them so actively offensive and cynical that it’s somehow even more depressing. I didn’t derive any joy from the process, but it felt important that I write about it.

‘Wonder Woman’ Rules — and While Tom Cruise is Not a Flop, He’s No Longer in Control

11 June 2017 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wonder Woman” (Warner Bros.) built on its strong opening with a better than average second-weekend hold. The Patty Jenkins-directed D.C. Comic world entry is looking at strong foreign results, but it’s the domestic take where the response is strongest.

The same can’t be said for Universal’s attempt at a new series of classic monster character movies. “The Mummy” with Tom Cruise at the lead reinforced the big story for many top studio releases this summer so far. Foreign is strong initially, but domestic is weak even by relatively modest estimates.

In an otherwise unexceptional weekend, two wide releases — “It Comes At Night” (A24) and “Megan Leavey” (Bleecker Street) — from distributors usually associated with the specialized market placed in the top 10. Neither was stellar, but added about $10 million to the total. At this point, the boost is needed.

Netflix has acquired international rights to the British coming-of-age comedy “Amar Akbar & Tony” from Kino Lorber, Variety has learned exclusively.
