All of 2017’s Best Music, Ranked

All of 2017’s Best Music, Ranked
Damn. it was a good year for music.

It didn’t always feel that way, though. While Kendrick Lamar’s aforementioned fourth studio album -- which hit like a meteor on the Friday before the rapper’s monster set to close out Coachella -- much of 2017 was defined by growers rather than out of the gate jams and much of the summer passed without a bona fide “Song of” said season. (Barely. More on that in a second.)

Really, it's only on looking back at the cavalcade of "Best Of" lists that footnote every year that you realize how full of noteworthy sounds 2017 in particular was. And now, with the nearly ubiquitous acceptance of streaming as the primary method of song consumption, not only is the roster of artists who find both large audiences and critical acclaim more diverse and democratized than ever, but the entire idea of a publication-determined "Best Music of the Year" feels almost silly.

Ranking This Christmas’ Oscar Movies, From ‘The Post’ to Hugh Jackman’s Vanity Musical
Christmas movies suggest family-friendly, heartwarming tales, designed for peak holiday family moviegoing. And then there’s the other kind — the late-breaking, high-profile, A-list titles designed to hit the box office and Oscar voters’ consciousness. Some of these launched at prestige fall film festivals (“Downsizing,” “Molly’s Game,” “Hostiles,” “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool”); others are bonafide awards contenders (Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread”); and some, like Hugh Jackman vanity musical “The Greatest Showman,” will soon skid into either bad reviews or audience reaction, or both.

Herewith, a ranking of the Christmas movies in order of their likely Oscar prospects.

The Post” (Fox, December 22)

Metascore: 82.

Strengths: Steven Spielberg’s riveting paean to newspaper journalism and freedom of the press couldn’t be more timely. Early reviews are strong for this true story about The Washington Post’s publication of the Pentagon Papers,

‘Black Mirror’ Review (Xbox One)

Neither a remake nor a direct continuation of the 2003 game of the same name, Black Mirror is a point and click horror/thriller that takes place in the late 19th Century and features a story of supernatural and the occult, as seen through the eyes of one David Gordon, youngest member and heir of the Gordon family. Made by King Art Games (also responsible for Battle World Kronos, Book of Unwritten Tales 1 and 2 and The Dwarves) Black Mirror has a lot of potential, but does it live up to expectations?

In a word, no. But that’s mainly because of a whole raft of technical issues that hamper the gameplay and prevent the player from enjoying what could otherwise have been a fairly enjoyable storyline. The game opens with David’s father running panicked through a maze in the middle of the night. Mumbling incoherently, he rushes towards a somewhat

Jessica Chastain on Refusing Unequal Pay, Declining Traditional Female Roles & Being a Role Model for Girls

Being paid less than her male co-stars is no longer an issue for Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain.

Why? Because she simply refuses to accept lower salaries!

The 40-year-old beauty covers Town & Country’s December/January issue, in which she addresses the gender pay gap in Hollywood.

“If I’m in a situation where I have equal experience to the actor and my role is just as significant, there is no reason why I should be paid less,” she tells the magazine, on newsstands Nov. 21. “It’s not really part of my world anymore, because I just won’t accept it.”

Noah Baumbach on ‘The Meyerowitz Stories,’ the Nature of Success, and Why so Many ‘Failed’ Artists Turn Into Assholes

Noah Baumbach on ‘The Meyerowitz Stories,’ the Nature of Success, and Why so Many ‘Failed’ Artists Turn Into Assholes
A poison-tipped portrait of living through his parents’ divorce, “The Squid and the Whale” has long been understood to be Noah Baumbach’s most explicitly autobiographical film. And yet, so much of his subsequent work — from the slapstick solipsism of “Mistress America” to the generational broadside of “While We’re Young” — is snagged on the perils of letting other people determine one’s self-worth. A Barnard freshman is desperate for the approval of her school’s most exclusive literary society. An esoteric director feels attacked when his new documentary about a leftist intellectual isn’t as warmly received as his doting protege’s dumb movie about some guy he knows on Facebook. Even “De Palma” hinges on an artist having the opportunity to reckon with his own reputation; it’s an extremely generous gift from one filmmaker to another.

So while “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” which premiered to

‘Big Mouth’ Season 1 Voice Cast: A Visual Guide To The Adult Voices Behind The Tweens
Netflix’s new animated comedy “Big Mouth” takes on adolescence from a distinctly adult point of view, tracking the middle school adventures of a pack of tweens whose bodies are changing in crazy ways. Fortunately, their antics are brought to life by the crème de la crème of voice acting — starting with the powerhouse himself, co-creator Nick Kroll.

It wasn’t a surprise when Kroll, an executive producer of the show, recruited his friend and Broadway co-star John Mulaney to the roster. After that, the voice cast list seems to be a handful of your favorite SNL alums and comedy icons. Even Dick Whitman makes a small, yet savory appearance.

Denis Villeneuve Is Eyeing ‘Cleopatra’ Remake After Conquering ‘Blade Runner 2049’

Denis Villeneuve Is Eyeing ‘Cleopatra’ Remake After Conquering ‘Blade Runner 2049’
Following ecstatic early reviews for “Blade Runner 2049,” Denis Villeneuve is in talks to helm Sony Pictures’ epic “Cleopatra” remake. Producers Scott Rudin and Amy Pascal optioned the best-selling 2010 biography “Cleopatra: A Life,” by Stacy Schiff. James Cameron, Paul Greengrass, and David Fincher were previously in the running, but Deadline reports that Villeneuve is at the top of the list. Villeneuve is quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s most coveted directors, with “Prisoners,” “Sicario,” “Arrival,” and now “Blade Runner 2049,” which has critics raving. The director is also developing a remake of “Dune,” the sci-fi classic by Frank Herbert, with Legendary Entertainment.

It has been rumored that Angelina Jolie would play the legendary Egyptian queen, but Sony would be wise to heed recent charges of whitewashing that have tanked other blockbusters. The script has seen three different scribes so far: David Scarpa, Eric Roth and Brian Helgeland.

The Week in Star Wars returns with bad news coming from the Lucasfilm camp, Rian Johnson’s comments on The Last Jedi and a load of toy images…

Right, so let’s look at the Colin Trevorrow situation then. It was revealed this week that Trevorrow (Jurassic World) had become the fourth director since the Disney-era to vacate the director’s chair, exiting Star Wars: Episode IX over creative differences. “Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX,” the Lucasfilm press release said. “Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process, but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ.
