2016’s films ranked

27 April 2017 12:33 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

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.

Exclusive: Orlando Bloom talks Pirates 5; says sequel has “the best of what we had at the beginning”

25 April 2017 2:43 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

In amongst all of the summer movie madness that is slowly cranking up in the film world, many will soon the return of some of their favourite franchises whether it’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers, Alien, Planet of the Apes or the recently released Fast & Furious 8.

But one new sequel that has many question marks over it is the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Dead Men Tell No Tales, and while the previous few entries have been big hits they haven’t been received with as much positivity as the first adventure. Orlando Bloom, who starred in the first three films, is returning for part 5 as Will Turner and says where the sequels have disappointed, the new film will bring back much of the charm and adventure of the original.

Paramount Admits Whitewash Controversy Hurt Ghost in the Shell

5 April 2017 2:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The month of March hasn't traditionally been a time for huge box office blockbusters, but that has certainly changed in recent years, evidenced a few weeks ago by the record-breaking success of Beauty and the Beast. Another film hoping to capitalize on this upward trend was Paramount's Ghost in the Shell, although the movie was handily trounced by DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby, which opened with $50.1 million, while Ghost in the Shell debuted in third with $18.6 million, a lackluster pull for a movie budgeted at $110 million. As the fall out from this box office flop continues, one Paramount executive revealed in an interview that the whitewashing controversy likely lead to the negative critical reception, which may have impacted the box office performance.

Heading into the opening weekend, neither The Boss Baby nor Ghost in the Shell were critical hits, with Boss Baby currently posting a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, »

Will ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Be the Last Racially Insensitive Blockbuster? — Critics Survey

3 April 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

Between the phenomenal success of “Get Out,” the imminent next chapter of the emphatically diverse “Fast and the Furious” franchise, and the recent failure of “Ghost in the Shell,” (among other examples), is there genuine reason to hope that racially insensitive blockbusters might soon become a thing of the past?

Vadim Rizov (@vrizov), Filmmaker Magazine

I think a lot about Bilge Ebiri’s 2013 piece on how the “Fast & Furious” franchise blew up by self-consciously becoming “diverse.” The short takeaway: Universal execs didn’t throw together a super-diverse cast out of the goodness of their progressive hearts, but out of a keen awareness that targeting multipole, oft-underserved demographics was a key, »

Great Job, Internet!: What happened to Gerard Butler’s career?

20 March 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

About 10 years ago, Gerard Butler and his washboard abs blasted onto the big screen in the box-office hit 300, making him a star. To this day, if you Google Gerard Butler, the first thing that comes up is his 300 workout. Unfortunately for Butler, not much else pops up, as he has failed over the past decade to capitalize on that 300 momentum. A new video from Looper outlines just where Butler went wrong.

The video first points to a factor that affects most of the other ones mentioned: Butler’s age. He was already 27 by the time he decided he wanted to be an actor, leaving his law career behind. So he missed the many years of technical and educational training many actors go through. Subsequently, certain acting tools are a major stumbling block for him: accents, for example. Looper points out that Gods Of Egypt likely ...

Aladdin: Casting Call Out For Two Middle Eastern Actors

9 March 2017 4:13 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hollywood has a real bad habit of casting white actors in non-white roles. It’s a trend that has its origins all the way to the beginning of filmmaking itself. However, if the past few years has been any indication, the trend is far from extinct. Movies like The Prince of Persia, Gods of Egypt, and Exodus: Gods and Kings are all examples of movies set in the Middle East that starred white actors in the lead role.

And don’t get us wrong. We get it. Hollywood likes money, and it’s hard to take risks. But it’s 2017, and the industry finally seems to understand that someone has to take these risks first. In recent months, Disney has been promising diversity in some of their upcoming live-action films like Mulan, which pretty much necessitate a non-white cast. Another big question mark has been the Aladdin film from director Guy Ritchie. »

Winners at the Spirit Awards include a “Moonlight” sweep

6 March 2017 12:01 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Before we get back to the Academy Awards and what exactly happened there, and I promise we will, that big weekend also had a non Oscar ceremony that Moonlight triumphed at. Yes, let us quickly go back and take a glance at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. That was where Moonlight did even better, winning everywhere that it was nominated. That was slightly unexpected, though in light of the Academy Award results, perhaps shouldn’t have been. Regardless, it was a history making weekend and one that independent cinema should have been proud of. As such, the Independent Spirit Awards deserve a tip of the cap too. The Spirit Awards went up and down the line for Barry Jenkins’ film, giving Moonlight a big sweep before it pulled the Oscar upset. You’ll see all of its wins below, as well as a horse of a different color with the Razzie results, »

Double Depp! Johnny Depp Makes Two Appearances in New Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Trailer

2 March 2017 10:14 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The first two Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailers featured little-to-no footage of Johnny Depp‘s Jack Sparrow — but boy, is Disney making up for it in the third preview.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show premiered the new trailer for the latest film in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise on Thursday — and it features not one, but two Depps!

There’s Depp as the scalawag pirate Jack Sparrow fans have come to know over the previous four films. And then there’s a baby-faced CGI Depp as a younger, more naive Sparrow — seemingly unaware of the »

'Hacksaw Ridge' nabs two gongs at surreal 2017 Oscars

This year's Oscars ceremony went off alright, but not without a hitch (or two).

During the In Memoriam section, a photo of Australian producer Jan Chapman (Love Serenade, Lantana, The Babadook) was shown next to the name of late costume designer Janet Patterson, with whom Chapman worked on several Jane Campion films including The Piano, Bright Star and Holy Smoke..

Patterson died in October last year. Her final film was Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts..

.I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and long-time collaborator Janet Patterson," the still-very-much-breathing Chapman told Variety..

"I had urged her agency to check any photograph which might be used and understand that they were told that the Academy had it covered. »

Razzies 2017: Batman v Superman and Hillary’s America “win” big at the Golden Raspberry Awards

25 February 2017 1:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s the day before the Oscars, which means its time for the Razzies to celebrate the very worst that Hollywood had to offer from the past twelve months.

Warner Bros.Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice took a beating with four awards – Worst Supporting Actor (Jesse Eisenberg), Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Combo (Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill).

Tying Batman v Superman with four awards was the political documentary Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party which was named Worst Picture, along with Worst Director (Dinesh D’Souza, Bruce Schooley), Worst Actor (Dinesh D’Souza) and Worst Actress (Becky Turner). Meanwhile, Kristen Wiig was named Worst Supporting Actress for Zoolander 2.

2017 Razzie Awards Winners Announced

25 February 2017 10:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's the Saturday before Oscars. And that can mean only one thing! Yes, this year's Razzie Award winners have been announced. The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year's 37th Annual Razzie Awards expanded from 5 nominees to an unprecedented 6 contenders in each of its 9 Worst Achievement in Film categories. Leading this year's list of movie-misfires were the 15-years-too-late sequel Zoolander No. 2 and the Wtf comic book battle-royale Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Each was up for both Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Other Worst Picture nominees include Dirty Grandpa, Gods of Egypt, Hillary's America and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Many expected Batman v Superman would take Worst Picture of the year. But it failed to live up to even that hype, proving it can't catch a break. Instead, the Worst Picture Award went to a truly despicable piece of tabloid cinema known as Hillary's America. »

It’s been an exciting awards season this year, but it’ll all come to an end tomorrow night when the 89th Academy Awards take place. La La Land is expected to walk away victorious in most categories and analysts aren’t predicting too many upsets or surprises. But the Oscars aren’t the only big awards ceremony taking place this weekend, as the 37th Golden Raspberry Awards, or Razzies for short, have just concluded and the results are now in.

There were certainly more than a handful of horrible, awful, waste of time films to release in 2016, but the biggest offenders here seem to be Dirty Grandpa, Zoolander 2, Hilary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Razzie Awards 2017 Winners List: ‘Hillary’s America,’ ‘Batman v Superman’ Dominate

25 February 2017 9:34 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even the Razzies got political at the 2017 awards, recognizing the “worst in film.”

The Golden Raspberry Awards, nicknamed the “Razzies” crowned “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” the worst picture of the year on Saturday, the day before the Academy Awards. The critically drubbed political documentary, which earned a staggering 4% on Rotten Tomatoes, also swept the worst actor, worst actress and worst director categories.

As to not be entirely overlooked, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also took home four awards for worst supporting actor, screenplay, screen combo and, finally, worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.

Razzie Awards Winners List 2017: ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Hillary’s America’ Dominate as Year’s Worst

25 February 2017 7:24 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Awards season finally comes to an end tomorrow night with the 89th Academy Awards, and the 37th Golden Raspberry Awards (nicknamed the Razzies) are honoring the very worst films of 2016. It turns out that it was such a horrific year at multiplexes that the categories were expanded to include six nominees.

Ben Stiller’s critically reviled “Zoolander 2” had the most nominations of the year, competing in nine categories, including the coveted Worst Picture. Other multiple nominees included “Dirty Grandpa” (six nominations), “Independence Day: Resurgence” (five nominations) and “Alice Through the Looking Glass” (three nominations). But two films took home the majority of the dubious honors, with the bloated mashup of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and lazy propaganda of “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” “winning” all but one of the top dishonors.

Razzie Awards: 'Batman v Superman,' 'Hillary's America' Top Winners

25 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice dominated the 37th annual satirical awards show. The two films combined to "win" in every category except for worst supporting actress, which went to Kristen Wiig for her botoxed fashionista character in Zoolander No. 2.

Director Dinesh D'Souza's anti-Hillary Clinton film took home four Razzies, including worst picture, beating out Batman v Superman, Gods of Egypt, Bad Grandpa, Zoolander No. 2 and Independence Day: Resurgence. D'Souza also earned himself personal honors for worst director and worst actor - D'Souza played himself in the film. D'Souza was a good sport about his "win", »

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

22 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop.  Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »

'Lego Batman' to Lead President's Day Weekend Over 'Fist Fight', 'Great Wall' & 'Cure for Wellness'

16 February 2017 2:34 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

President's Day weekend last year was a monster thanks to the $152+ million four-day opening for Deadpool. A year before that Fifty Shades of Grey took advantage of the fortuitous timing with a $93 million four-day opening. This year's new releases*Fist Fight, The Great Wall and A Cure for Wellness*won't be making such big waves as only one looks as if it will find its way into the top three while the others take a backseat to a trio of second weekend holdovers. At the top, look for WB's The Lego Batman Movie to secure a second weekend at #1 and will top $100 million by the end of the day on Monday. The Lego Batman Movie heads into the weekend with strong word of mouth ("A-" CinemaScore), solid reviews (75 on Metacritic) and it remains the widest release of the weekend as the only film playing in over 4,000 theaters.

Disney’s Live-Action Aladdin Producer: “We’re Not Here to Make Prince Of Persia”

8 February 2017 2:56 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

To say that we live in a very fragile political climate would be an understatement. In our increasingly globalized world, there is a pressure to try and represent the diversity that many Americans see day in and day out. Without getting too political, it’s been difficult for Hollywood to embrace this idea. The fact is they like money, and up until recently, it’s largely been white actors who have become the big Hollywood A-listers, and in a continued effort to keep the gravy train going, studios have often clung to those familiar faces, assuming they would result in better box office receipts.

Of course, with those decisions come backlashes. We’ve seen it in films like Exodus: Gods and Kings, Gods of Egypt, Ghost in the Shell, and of course, The Prince of Persia face all sorts of criticism for their choice in leads.

So what does this »

Efm: Brenton Thwaites to star in 'Ghosts Of War'

6 February 2017 12:38 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Highland Film Group kicks off pre-sales in Berlin this week on Miscellaneous Entertainment’s supernatural psychological thriller. CAA will represent North American rights.

Eric Bress will direct from his screenplay about five battle-hardened American soldiers assigned to hold a French Chateau near the end of the Second World War.

Formerly occupied by the Nazi high command, this apparent refuge quickly descends into madness when the troops encounter a supernatural enemy far more terrifying than anything seen on the battlefield. 

Thwaites starred in The Giver and Gods Of Egypt and will next be seen in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and recently shot Interview With God and Office Uprising.

Miscellaneous Entertainment’s D Todd Shepherd, Joe Simpson and Shelley Madison are producing Ghosts Of War and finance the project. Adrian Jayasinha will serve as executive producer.

Sluggish China Box Office Brings Down 2016’s Global Totals

25 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Publicly, studio executives tend to be a rosy bunch, predicting that each year’s crop of movies will be better than that which preceded it. But behind closed doors, few in the business were expecting much from 2016.

When the final numbers are tallied, the global box office will probably fall short of last year’s record-breaking $38.9 billion. Most observers expect ticket sales to fall roughly 2% to just over $38 billion. That decline is reason for some alarm, particularly as the shortfall is largely attributable to a slowdown in China. After years of explosive growth, in which returns were expanding at a 40% clip annually, revenue in China was essentially flat in 2016 — a disappointment for the world’s second-largest film market, which had been expected to surpass the U.S. in terms of revenue in a matter of months.

“As China goes, so goes the international marketplace,” notes Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. »
