Awards Buzz: 'Hidden Figures,' 'La La Land,' 'I Don't Feel at Home' Surprise and Confirm

Mon, 01/30/2017 - 05:19

Now that the Academy Award nominations have been announced, award shows take on a different perspective. Rather than calling attention to lesser-known movies, award shows often serve to confirm the front-runners, although surprise winners still bloom forth. Last night, for example, Emma Stone was the recipient of the lead actress award for La La Land, as expected. But instead of her costar Ryan Gosling or, even more likely, Casey Affleck taking home the Best Lead Actor prize for Manchester...

Should Your Tween Go to the Movies Without You?

Thu, 01/26/2017 - 12:53

As much as I’d like to believe that my 11-year-old is still a little boy, he’s growing up. He’s eager to take on new responsibilities and venture out on his own with his friends, so I’m tasked with learning how to let go while fostering his independence in age-appropriate ways. When my son asked if he could go see How to Train Your Dragon 2 with friends last summer, I had a few reservations. Would he behave responsibly in a movie theater? Could I trust him with a...

The Longest-Running Horror Franchises

Thu, 01/26/2017 - 11:35

Great horror concepts never die, they just lie in wait to be resurrected and terrify us all again. Case in point: Rings, which updates the series to modern times. In other words, it's not a videotape that unleashes an all-consuming evil, but something else. The technology is not as important as the frightening possibility that good may not always conquer evil. Rings provides new twists in a series that dates back to Ringu (1998), the unnerving Japanese original. That may sound like...

Michael Bay to Produce Dystopian Action Movie About China Taking Over America

Thu, 01/26/2017 - 06:43

Michael Bay is not optimistic about the state of the world. At least it certainly seems that way based on the movies he's been making. 13 Hours was an angry blast against bureaucratic inaction. The Purge takes place in a nightmarish vision of a bloodthirsty, dystopian America. Even Optimus Prime, whose got optimism right in his name, becomes a bad guy in the next Transformers movie! But all of those movies are just setting the stage for what may be Bay's most zeitgeist-prodding...

Thu, 01/26/2017 - 06:41

Fact: Nobody knows how to use child actors in action movies better than Shane Black. The Monster Squad writer has been doing it pretty much his whole career, but he's been on a particularly amazing streak these last few years. He's the one who paired Iron Man up with a mini Tony Stark (Ty Simpkins) in Iron Man 3. Some of the absolute best bits of The Nice Guys come from the hilarious and surprisingly endearing father-daughter relationship between Ryan Gosling and Angourie Rice. And now...

The Clint Eastwood Classic 'Every Which Way but Loose' Is Getting a Remake

Wed, 01/25/2017 - 06:08

Tell someone that Every Which Way but Loose is getting remade and they may give you a bit of an "Er, what movie is that again?" face. It is an odd, easily confused title for a movie, after all. It's not as distinct as, say, A Nightmare on Elm Street. Tell someone that they're remaking the movie where Clint Eastwood has a pet orangutan, though, and they'll know exactly what you're talking about. You can't really confuse that combination with any other movie...
