Maleficent-Mistress of Evil, Review: Feynix rises from the ashes

Maleficent-Mistress of Evil, Review: Feynix rises from the ashes When a studio like Disney decides to give it the works, it usually works. It is difficult to find fault with the execution of the plot in Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, unless, of course you begin with the title itself. As viewers will discover early in the film, she is not the mistress of evil. Then you might consider the fact that there are several killings and a full-blooded war depicted, in a film aimed at young children and ...

Omerta, Review: Omer talk

Omerta, Review: Omer talk Alright, Omar, if you insist. His full name is Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh. If you see the film, you will discover that he is a hardcore terrorist who indulged in at least one act of barbaric butchery as well. With a name like that, he has to be a Pakistani or Pakistani sympathiser. Omerta spans the canvas from Bosnia to the hijacking of an Indian Airlines’ plane to the Mumbai terror attacks. The film derives its title from the Italian term for a criminal code of ...

Director Nora Twomey on “The Breadwinner”

A scrolling band of carnelian clouds circling clockwise, a boy in an Afghani folk costume swirling within, a radiant beam at the center: The opening frames of Nora Twomey’s animated film The Breadwinner tell a tale of light and shadow, conjuring dream imagery of the pyche’s quest towards wholeness in the larger world. In case you haven’t guessed, we’re in the realm of universal truth, seen from toon-spun Afghanistan. The allegory quickly blossoms into...

Unbroken, Review: Life of Pi meets Bhag Milkha Bhag meets Forrest Gump

Unbroken, Review: Life of Pi meets Bhag Milkha Bhag meets Forrest Gump I know, Milkha was a real character and the others are fictional, so where does Unbroken meet these other three? Endurance against all odds at sea was seen in Pi, a small-town boy running for international glory was Milkha and Forrest Gump too ran a similar trail, albeit with the added dimension of a man having a mental condition. In the end, we will have to give it to Unbroken for originality, because it is largely true t...

The Importance of Being MALEFICENT: Angelina Jolie Schools Us

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   So, ignore the horns and watch for spoiler alerts here: MALEFICENT is the role of a lifetime for Angelina Jolie. Yes, a lot of the credit goes to screenwriter Linda Woolverton (Lion King, Beauty & The Beast), who gets Angelina and wrote a touching life lesson disguised as a Disney movie. "We tried to bring you what you love about this story," Jolie says in the behind the scenes featurette (see it on http://screenma...

The 2014 Academy Awards Oscars with Adrienne Papp

  By Adrienne Papp I get invited to a lot of social events  as a journalist / publicist, but there is nothing quite like the Oscars.  Excitement is in the air, everyone is full of wonder, looking forward to this fairytale-like evening with its never ending magic.

New Genre? Jennifer Lawrence & "Chicks with Sticks" Fight the Powder

  by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   With the recent Buzzfeed headline that last night's Golden Globes winner Jennifer Lawrence stars in "the First Film with a Female Lead to Top the Box Office in 40 Years," it still stuns many in Hollywood that Hunger Games 2 actually beat up Iron Man 3 in the money race. Catching Fire is the top-grosser of 2013, but, this movie also officially ushers in a new genre.  We've gone from Chick Flicks to Chicks ...

Premiere of Lost Hal Ashby film; debut for Angelina Jolie

user
Talk about art imitating life, or vice-versa – or something like that. Here’s the story: In 1981, Jon Voight signed on to star in a comedy called Lookin’ To Get Out, which he’d co-written. Co-starring would be Burt Young of Rocky fame, and the stunning Ann-Margret. Directing would be Hal Ashby, a maverick who’d made such hit flicks as Harold and Maude (1971), Shampoo (1975) and Being There (1979), and who would die of cancer 1988. Jon had been pa...
