The First Purge movie review: a ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ for #BlackLivesMatter

MaryAnn’s quick take… This shrewd sci-fi horror franchise is as sharp as ever as it reaches yet further down into the unpleasant flipside of the American myth. A rare prequel that doesn’t feel superfluous. I’m “biast” (pro): big fan of this series

I’m “biast” (con): was a little worried the series was running out of steam

I was a little worried with the previous Purge movie, Election Year, the third in the series, that the concept might be running out of steam, and that perhaps we didn’t need a fourth. Now that latest installment — The First Purge — is here. Turns out, I needn’t have worried. This most shrewd of sci-fi horror franchises is as sharp as ever with its skewering of the particular

Gringo movie review: Mexican bland-off

MaryAnn’s quick take… Woefully undeveloped characters, a thin yet convoluted plot, and a lack of humor in the black comedy. This is what it looks like when a hastily scribbled first draft goes straight into production. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

So this is what it looks like when everyone just goes, “You know what? This first draft of the script is great! Let’s just run with it.” This is almost always a bad idea, but especially so in this case, because the Gringo that we got from screenwriters Anthony Tambakis (Jane Got a Gun) and Matthew Stone (Soul Men, Man of the House) feels like what might have happened when they sketched out a rough outline of their “brilliant” idea — “What

Call Me by Your Name movie review: met a boy cute as can be…

MaryAnn’s quick take… You can feel the stillness and the heat of this sultry, sensual summer in Italy. This is a glorious romance about falling in love with life itself, and living with gusto. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

If you don’t want to run away to the Italian countryside after Call Me by Your Name, and eat fruit right off the tree, and bask in the summer sun, and fall in love, I have nothing to say to you.

I, Tonya movie review: a woman at war with herself

MaryAnn’s quick take… A black comedy about domestic violence, parental abuse, and low self-esteem (and it works!), one that challenges our appreciation of how true based-on-fact might be. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

I’ve heard tell that there are people — young people, but still adult people — who have never heard of champion figure skater Tonya Harding and don’t know why she was famous for a while in the 1990s for reasons that had nothing to do with her athletic ability. This astonishes me, but probably shouldn’t. In fact, it’s a totally apropos underscore to I, Tonya’s running motif about the vagaries of fame and the inadvisability of putting all your emotional stock in it, as a wannabe famous person, current famous person,

‘I, Tonya’: Allison Janney on the Frightening Injury That Turned Her from Iceskating to Acting

‘I, Tonya’: Allison Janney on the Frightening Injury That Turned Her from Iceskating to Acting
When Allison Janney watched Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan compete in the 1994 Olympics — along with 126 million others — she had no idea that she’d eventually earn her first Oscar buzz for playing Harding’s mother. Most of those viewers tuned in because weeks prior, Harding’s ex-husband and bodyguard arranged for an attacker to club Kerrigan’s knee with a police baton. But for Janney, it was personal: few know that she was once a serious figure skater herself, sidelined from the sport by a freak accident that occurred when her parents hosted a party.

“There was a game where couples had balloons tied around their ankles and you tried to pop the other couples’ balloons,” said Janney, who portrays Lavona Golden in Craig Gillespie’s “I, Tonya.” “I was cheating, and had my balloon tied around my knee, because I had a strapless long dress on. Cheaters never prosper!

‘I, Tonya’: How the Man Who Wrote ‘Hope Floats’ Created the Year’s Most Unexpectedly Empowering Feminist Biopic

‘I, Tonya’: How the Man Who Wrote ‘Hope Floats’ Created the Year’s Most Unexpectedly Empowering Feminist Biopic
There’s little on screenwriter Steven Rogers’ resume to indicate that he was interested in writing something like “I, Tonya,” the year’s most irreverent – and unexpectedly inspiring – biopic that follows the exploits of one of America’s signature fallen stars. After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival in September (where Neon and 30West acquired it for 2017 release), the film has steadily picked up awards steam, particularly for the mother-daughter performances of Allison Janney and Margot Robbie, who are both nominated for Critics’ Choice and Indie Spirit awards.

“I’m loving this,” Rogers said with a laugh. “Because you don’t get it on every movie, so when you do get it, you just hold it closely. Never one time, ever, when I started to write about Tonya Harding and Jeff Gillooly, did I think about awards season. The whole experience has been kind of miraculous.”

Rogers isn’t exaggerating.

Hostiles Trailer Takes Christian Bale Through the Brave Frontier

Hostiles Trailer Takes Christian Bale Through the Brave Frontier
Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures has released the first trailer for Hostiles, which reunites director Scott Cooper and Christian Bale after their 2013 drama Out of the Furnace. The movie is slated to hit theaters in late December, which could make this an early favorite for the 2018 Oscars, although we still have quite some time before the awards season picture starts fully coming together. Still, this drama has been tearing through the prestige festival circuit, debuting at Telluride in September before appearing at the Toronto International Film Festival, Rome Film Fest and more, as it gets ready to debut at AFI Fest in Los Angeles next week.

Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army Captain (Christian Bale), who after stern resistance, reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from Fort Berringer, an

Lady Bird movie review: flights of adolescent angsty (#LFF2017)

MaryAnn’s quick take… An emotional feast full of humor and pathos about the audacity, the wonder, the horror that is female adolescence. Beautiful, bittersweet, and very generous. I’m “biast” (pro): I am desperate for movies about girls and women; love Ronan and Gerwig

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Herewith the single authentic movie about being a teenaged girl that our male-dominated entertainment sphere has begun to begrudgingly allow us annually. Last year’s was The Edge of Seventeen; 2015’s was The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird is like those films, in that it is an emotional feast about the audacity and the wonder and the horror that is female adolescence the likes of which we oh-so rarely get to see onscreen. It is a nightmare and an adventure that will resonant with

Trailer Watch: Margot Robbie Chases Glory and Finds Infamy in “I, Tonya”

“I, Tonya”

A new Red Band trailer has dropped for awards hopeful “I, Tonya.” The Margot Robbie-starrer centers on world-renowned athlete turned punchline Tonya Harding. “My entire life I’ve been told I wouldn’t amount to anything,” says Tonya in the trailer. And yet by her own estimation, she went on to become “the best figure skater in the world at one point in time.”

Though she made history with her stunning triple axels, Harding’s legacy has everything to do with what occurred off the rink. “I, Tonya” revisits one of the most controversial moments in sports history — the infamous attack on Harding’s fellow U.S. skater and competitor Nancy Kerrigan.

But the spot doesn’t just emphasize Tonya’s alleged involvement with that incident. Instead, it focuses on Tonya’s relationship with her physically and emotionally abusive mother, played by Allison Janney. We see her describing Tonya’s coach as a “cunt,” and she bluntly tells Tonya, “I made you a champion knowing you’d hate me for it. That’s a sacrifice a mother makes.”

The pic depicts Harding’s harrowing treatment from her mother and her ex-husband (Sebastian Stan, “Captain America” franchise). The dark dramedy also suggests that Harding was largely unaware of the plot to injure Kerrigan.

“I, Tonya” made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. Since then, there’s been awards chatter surrounding the film, especially Robbie and Janney’s performances. The former produced the project, which is directed by Craig Gillespie (“The Finest Hours”) and written by Steven Rogers (“Love the Coopers”).

Check out the Nsfw trailer to see Tonya’s amazing reaction to a judge who makes a snide comment about her appearance. “I, Tonya” hits theaters December 8.

Olivia Wilde Attacked for This Instagram Post

2017-10-09T06:35:41-07:00Olivia Wilde Attacked for This Instagram Post

Here's more evidence that social media is infested with trolls more interested in sowing discord than contributing anything of value to the world. When Love the Coopers star Olivia Wilde posted an innocent picture of herself and her son, trolls crawled from beneath their rocks to accuse her of being inappropriate. We're pretty sure that most people in Olivia Wilde's culture don't have a problem with a mother giving her young child a peck on the lips and would hesitate to shame her for kissing her son "like her husband." Apparently, though, such behavior is abhorrent in troll-land.

Via The Sun.

Olivia Wilde has been shamed by trolls for kissing her son "like her husband".
