2016’s films ranked

17 February 2017 2:34 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.

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.

Tim Jones (Hamm) is an accomplished travel writer whose hobbies include blowing glass and his wife, Natalie (Gadot) is a social media consultant, »

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 »

If You Have to Visit Black Rock, This New Blu Is the Way to Go

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 »

Zach Galifianakis Created a Gerrymandering Documentary Named ‘Democracy for Sale’ – Watch Clip

14 January 2017 3:44 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Zach Galifianakis’ documentary, “Democracy For Sale,” looks at how bad gerrymandering has gotten in his home state of North Carolina. The film was originally part of Epix’s original docuseries “America Divided,” produced by Common, Norman Lear and Shonda Rhimes, which premiered back in September. Now, according to the News Observer, the doc will be screened across North Carolina in January and February.

In the film, the actor discusses the state’s transformed politics and, per the project’s website, “how the money of a few has come to dominate our democracy.” 

A clip for the documentary shows Galifianakis talking with former Democratic North Carolina state senator Margaret Dickson about how the  state’s districts have been changed.

“People feel like they’ve lost control of the process and in some ways they have,” she says in the video. “The redistricting is being done my people far away…I wish »

New to Streaming: ‘Cameraperson,’ ‘Aquarius,’ ‘Christine,’ ‘It Follows,’ and More

13 January 2017 8:46 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Aquarius (Kleber Mendonça Filho)

The staggeringly accomplished debut feature by Brazilian critic-turned-director Kleber Mendonça Filho, Neighboring Sounds, announced the arrival of a remarkable new talent in international cinema. Clearly recognizable as the work of the same director, Mendonça’s equally assertive follow-up, Aquarius, establishes his authorial voice as well as his place as one of the most eloquent filmic commentators on the contemporary state of Brazilian society. – Giovanni M. »

The team lines up in a great new image from the Justice League Movie

9 January 2017 5:35 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Twelve months ago we were all expectantly waiting for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which would pit two iconic superheroes against one another on the big screen. Though it ended up falling far short of those expectations the cinematic trio of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman had a certain novelty value which will drive fans into the ultimate movie in the DC/Snyderverse – the long awaited Justice League.

Before the superhero mash up we have an intriguing prospect in Patty JenkinsWonder Woman standalone film in June. Many considered Gadot’s appearance in Batman v Superman to be a breath of fresh air in amongst the glowering testosterone. Jenkins, too, is sure to bring something new to the dim and distant Dcu. We caught up with Wonder Woman Gal Gadot, and an admiring Jon Hamm, at the press junket for their recent comedy vehicle Keeping Up with the Joneses »
