Baby Driver movie review: common car-nage

4 July 2017 2:45 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Edgar Wright used to send up cinematic clichés with gusto and with huge humor. Here he just embraces them — and his sullen, unengaging hero — unironically. I’m “biast” (pro): love Edgar Wright’s early work

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Baby Driver is so hot, so cool, so exciting! Well, the opening sequence is, at least, the one bit in the movie that actually feels like Edgar Wright directed it. Fresh-faced getaway driver Baby waits in the car and we do too while a bank heist is happening in the background. Haha! A heist movie that isn’t about the heist at all! This is the driver’s movie, and he’s only about the driving, and nothing else. Except the music. He is also about the music — the classic rock and pop and soul »

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and leaving from) HBO Now in July

22 June 2017 2:38 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Game Of Thrones finally returns to HBO in July, but it’s not the only thing subscribers will be able to stream on the HBO Go and HBO Now services. All right, it’s definitely the most exciting thing out of the whole batch, but since this new season will only have seven episodes, you’re going to need other things to watch. In July, those other things could include season two of Insecure, season three of Ballers, the series premiere of Room 104, the Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine documentary The Defiant Ones, or an Andy Samberg double feature of the HBO original cycling comedy Tour De Pharmacy and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. Other theatrical premieres include Loving, Keeping Up With The Joneses, and Hacksaw Ridge.

You can see the full list of what’s coming and going below.

Isla Fisher Joins Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner in Comedy ‘Tag’

13 June 2017 3:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Isla Fisher has joined Ed Helms, Jeremy Renner, and Hannibal Buress in the New Line comedy “Tag.”

The film begins shooting later this month in Atlanta.

Fisher will play Helms’ wife, the organizer of a no-holds-barred game of tag. Jake Johnson, Jon Hamm, Annabelle Wallis, and Rashida Jones are also starring.

The movie “Tag” is based on Russell Adams’ 2013 story in The Wall Street Journal, titled “Tag, He’s ‘It’ for Another Year,” about a group of friends who have been playing a cutthroat version of the children’s game for the last 30 years. The story began, “It is going to be another long year for Mike Konesky. He was tagged Thursday night while entering a school play in Spokane, Wash.”

Jeff Tomsic is directing from a script by Mark Steilen and Rob McKittrick. The producers are Todd Garner, Mark Steilen, and Sean Robins. “Tag” hits theaters on June 29, 2018.

Exclusive: Jon Hamm Sets the Record Straight on Leaving Hollywood, Admits He ‘Overshared’ About Single Life

13 June 2017 12:32 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jon Hamm’s not leaving Hollywood, at least not yet.

In a recent interview on Sunday Today With Willie Geist, Hamm admitted he still thinks about returning to teaching -- but he tells Et that doesn’t mean he’s leaving acting behind. 

“You well know those things, you do an hour-and-a-half interview, and somebody pulls one sentence out of it and decides that's all they're gonna take away from it,” Hamm says. “I certainly never say never. It's a much less stressful job than this, although it has its own stresses. But I love teachers.”

After graduating college in 1993, Hamm worked as a middle school drama teacher in his hometown of St. Louis for a year.

“I go back to St. Louis in July at some point,” Hamm shares. “I do a fundraiser for the public library there, so I still have my toe in that water »

'Twin Peaks' Recap: Dougie, Fresh

4 June 2017 8:41 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

So it seems that Twin Peaks is gunning for being the comedy sensation of 2017.

Wild, right? It's funny to think about how just two weeks ago, a mainline dose of co-creator/director David Lynch's most abstract and brutal work in years made the goofball charms of Peaks 1.0 seem a million miles away – for three or so episodes, anyway. But then Dale Cooper reentered the real world in the guise of one Dougie Jones, a Vegas-area insurance agent with bad habits and worse jackets, and hilarity ensued. So now, we »

Tyler Perry Returns in Boo 2! a Madea Halloween This October

26 May 2017 11:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before the holiday weekend gets under way, Lionsgate set new release dates for a pair of its upcoming projects. First up, the studio has handed out an October 20, 2017 release date for Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, a follow-up to last year's Boo! A Madea Halloween, from star/writer/director Tyler Perry. The studio also slated the new Aardman Animation stop-motion film Early Man for release on February 16, 2018. Unfortunately for both of those projects, they land on very competitive weekends.

Over the last few years, the third weekend in October has become increasingly crowded, but last year, Boo! A Madea Halloween managed to come out on top with a box office win of $28.5 million, easily beating three more newcomers, 20th Century Fox's Keeping Up With the Joneses, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and Ouija: Origins of Evil. However, it only earned $73.2 million domestically and just $1.6 million internationally for a worldwide total of $74.8 million, »

2016’s films ranked

04.27.17: This list is now final. While I may in the future see additional films that were released in the awards year of 2016, no more films will be added to this list. (I may add links to reviews of films listed here.)

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.

6 March 2017 5:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars, and the growing clamour for the original cuts

28 February 2017 1:06 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 1, 2017

As rumours that Disney is set to re-release the original cuts of the first Star Wars trilogy prove unfounded, we look at what's going on...

It’s a strange time in the world of physical discs. Whilst companies such as Arrow and Criterion continue to invest time, money and care into beautiful, crafted and collectable releases, there’s a growing feeling that the era of the physical disc is coming to an end. DVD and Blu-ray sales are falling, some titles by-pass disc altogether and go straight to streaming services. Furthermore, extra features are becoming less the norm and more a bit of a luxury. Then there’s the small matter of Ultra HD Blu-ray, a new disc format that’s making a little headway, but struggling to really breakthrough. Titles such as Keeping Up With The Joneses for £30 a throw aren’t loosening people’s purse strings. »

‘Trolls’ Trumps ‘Arrival’ to Remain No. 1 on Disc Sales Charts

22 February 2017 3:50 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite a tough challenge by Paramount’s newly released “Arrival,” 20th Century Fox again topped the national home video sales charts the week ended Feb. 19 with “Trolls,” the DreamWorks Animation family feature based on the toy dolls.

“Arrival,” a sci-fi actioner that grossed just over $100 million in U.S. theaters, finished a close second on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and Npd’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc Sales chart.

Npd research shows the film sold 66% as many units its first week in stores as “Trolls” did in the latter’s second week of release. On Blu-ray Disc the race was tighter, with “Arrival” selling 78% as many units as “Trolls.”

“The Arrival,” according to Npd, generated 61% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, compared to 51% for “Trolls” (down from 53% its first week of release).

Win Keeping Up With The Joneses on DVD

15 February 2017 1:46 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To celebrate the release of Keeping Up With The Joneses, which is available on Digital HD, VOD and DVD now, we have three copies of the film to give away on DVD!

From Director Greg Mottola (Superbad, Paul, AdventurelandKeeping Up With The Joneses is a cringingly laugh-out-loud comedy that packs an all-star cast including Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover Trilogy, Birdman) Isla Fisher (Now You See Me, Grimbsy), Jon Hamm (Mad Men, The Town) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman, Fast & Furious).

Keeping Up With The Joneses follows an ordinary suburban couple, Jeff (Galifianakis) and Karen Gaffney (Fisher), who find it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses — their impossibly attractive and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors — especially when they discover Mr. and Mrs. Jones are covert spies embroiled in international espionage.

The Lego Batman Movie review: give a minifig

7 February 2017 12:31 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… A great Batman movie, a great superhero movie, and a gloriously bonkers expression of the sublime silliness of crime fighters in capes, and our love of them. I’m “biast” (pro): really liked The Lego Movie

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

He’s Batman. (Say it in a low growl for best effect.) The little Lego minifig in black actually works as a superhero. Of course he appeared in The Lego Movie a couple years back, but he was a joke, a sideshow, a parody of the Dark Knight. Would spinning him off into his own movie work as anything other than a caricature, and wouldn’t he be just one joke stretched too thin across a full movie? Wouldn’t the few things that made The Lego Movie stand apart from all the many »

Warner Archive Delivers the Best Way to Enjoy a Bad Day at Black Rock

Welcome to this week in home video! Click the title to buy a Blu-ray/DVD from Amazon and help support Fsr in the process!

Pick of the WeekBad Day at Black Rock [Warner Archive]

What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.

Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and »
