Review of the amazing Spider-Man

user
The Amazing Spider-Man Starring: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary,  Martin Sheen, Irrfan Khan and Sally Field Director: Marc Webb For some readers, Holden Caulfield, the 16-year-old protagonist of  J D Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, is the epitome of teenage angst, anger and rebellion. Like many teenagers, Peter (Andrew Garfield) Parker, a solitary high schooler and the alter ego of SpiderMan, does not keep his word. He...

A Look at the 2012 Tony Awards from a Film Blogger/Seatfiller's Perspective

user
There's always some glitter of Tinseltown on Broadway; however, the 66th Annual American Theater Wing's Tony Awards had a really important film tie-in. You probably think I'm referring to: The win for Death of a Salesman produced by Scott Rudin, directed by Mike Nichols, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield, who brought along current girlfriend and Spiderman (2012 movie) co-star Emma Stone. Or Once, totally sweeping the Tonys as a Broadway musical! Which firs...

Geek Glory At 2011 Comic-Con

user
  Any event that can bring together such high power heavyweights as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and a host of stellar movie stars is the definition of clout. So, let’s be clear…..Comic-Con, the sprawling exhibition and promotion extravaganza that just wrapped in San Diego, has major clout. The confab, originally a geeky celebration of comic book culture, has become the go-to place for film and television series with comic book origins and fantasy/supernatural/phantasmagoric films in ge...

Top Ten Oscar Snubs And Surprises

user
  While most of the Oscar nominations announced last week were rather predictably the names and titles that we have been expecting, there were a number of surprises and snubs. Although the Academy has expanded the Best Film contender list to ten titles in order to spread the love, the acting and directing categories still can only include five people, so invariably there are those worthy of attention who fall off the list. Maybe there were number 6 or number 7, but if they did not make t...

The King, The Swan And The BAFTAS

user
BAFTA, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, has announced its "longlists", a rather quaint annual exercise that reduces the number of potential candidates for BAFTA Awards to 15. At the moment, in one of the key races of the awards season, the historical epic THE KING'S SPEECH and the ballet-goes-mad BLACK SWAN are tied for most mentions (to be translated in a few weeks time to most nominations). Not far behind are the films INCEPTION and THE SOCIAL NETWORK. The Leading Actor candi...

Screen Actors Guild Nominees

user
  While it limits its nominations to acting awards for film and television, the Screen Actors Guild Awards are considered very prestigious because they are given to actors by their fellow thespians. The awards ceremony, which used to be a private affair for guild members, is now televised in the United States and internationally, thus adding another layer in the run-up to the Academy Awards in February.   As with the Golden Globe Award nominations announced on Wednesday, Na...

Golden Globe Snubs And Surprises

user
  The "usual suspects" were evident at the announcement of the 2011 Golden Globe Awards by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Both the historical biopic THE KING'S SPEECH and the zeitgeist drama THE SOCIAL NETWORK received the most nominations, with such celebrated films as BLACK SWAN, THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, INCEPTION, BLUE VALENTINE and THE FIGHTER making strong showings. THE KING'S SPEECH has to be considered the current frontrunner, capping seven nominations...

British Independent Film Award Nominations

user
  With the British film industry still reeling from proposed massive budget cuts from governmental agencies, there is definitely an atmosphere of uncertainty in the air (which I experienced last week while attending the BFI London Film Festival). However, as far as the British films that will be hitting screens in the coming weeks, it actually appears to be a rather prolific period. This can be interpreted as either a brief celebratory calm before the storm, or just another indicator th...

London Film Festival Points To The Oscars

user
  Inevitably, any major film festival that occurs in the Fall season has a role play in determining eventual Oscar nominees and even winners. It all starts off at the Venice and Toronto film festivals, where Oscar hopefuls get their debuts, and continues into the season, presumably climaxing with nominations that come at the first of the year. With the Academy’s recent expansion of the Best Picture category to include 10 films, it is very likely that several of the films present...

Tokyo Film Festival Ramps Up

By Liza Foreman The Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) has announced that “The Social Network,” by the director, David Fincher, has been selected as the opening film for the 23rd TIFF. The film tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of the world's biggest social-networking website, "Facebook," and stars Jessy Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, and Justin Timberlake. The closing film, “The Town,” the second directorial feature by Ben Affleck, is a compelling and powerf...

THE SOCIAL NETWORK Kicks Off 2010 NYFF

user
  Future generations will be in a better position to determine whether the introduction of social networking technology in the first decade of the 20th century was a blessing or a curse. Certainly for the entrepreneurs who created new ways for us to communicate with one another, it has been both. Such is the case for the multi-billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, who founded the internet phenomenon Facebook, but who has lost as much as he has gained in terms of the trust and love of his friends...

The Brits Are Back At TIFF

user
  It has been a difficult few months for the British film industry. Not only has the economic recession made the film business even more challenging, but the controversy surrounding the shuttering of the UK Film Council has been acriminious, amidst charges of economic abuse and political favoritism. Even the venerable London Film Festival, which unspools next month, losts its main corporate sponsors and had to scramble to find replacements. However, based on the bounty of British film...

The Loss Of Innocence At TIFF

user
  Yesterday was September 11th, and again I find myself in the city of Toronto, as I did in 2001......when the planes crashed, the towers fell, the buildings burned and America lost its innocence. It was a very strange place to be back then, in the midst of covering a film festival, while one's city was in chaos. For those of us from New York, there was a shared concern about the loss of loved ones, the security of our friends and family and the frustrations of not being able to place p...
