Black Panther, Review: Pantherium Vibranium Compendium

Black Panther, Review: Pantherium Vibranium Compendium You first heard the name in 2010’s Iron Man 2. It was mentioned in 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, but Wakanda became an entity to reckon with in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, with Chadwick Boseman making his debut as Black Panther. So, do not confuse this outing with The Black Panther (1921) or The Black Panther (1977). On hand is no less than the eighteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). And hey, it ...

Taken 3, Review: Haven 3--End of the road for fugitive Mills Kills

Taken 3, Review: Haven 3--End of the road for fugitive Mills Kills Liam Neeson returns as ex-CIA agent Bryan Mills in Taken 3, aka Tak3n (no spell-check required), the latest film in the vengeance-driven action franchise. Once again, his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) and her mother Lenore, Mills’ separated wife (Famke Janssen), now married to Stuart St. John (Dougray Scott) are in peril. Lenore is found dead in Mills’ home, with her throat slit, and Mills holding a knife. Obviously,...

"Lee Daniels' 'The Butler" Serves Up a History Lesson

Not since Joseph interpreted a dream of Pharaoh's shaqahhas a butler been mythologized like the hero of Lee Daniels' The Butler. Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), who worked for eight presidents from 1957 to 1986, takes his cue from the the true story of White House butler Eugene Allen. Yet this epic drama has its own master to serve, and both Daniels and screenwriter Danny Strong pledge allegiance to educating viewers about history rather than to dramatizing one man's bio. At t...

Interview with Lee Daniels and Cuba Gooding, Jr in Philadelphia - "Lee Daniels The Butler"

user
I started to sit down and transcribe the interview with Lee Daniels, Cuba Gooding, Jr and Yaya Alafia Q&A style, but it was so lively, you need to hear it.  We'd ask a question which would take Lee & Cuba off on great tangents. Plus a transcription doesn't capture the camaraderie between the Precious director and the actors he respects and enjoys so much. So here's a video of the audio - http://www.tinseltine.com/2013/08/the-rittenhouse-hotel-interview-lee.html ...

Movie Review: THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND

user
Every time Forest Whitaker showed up on a talk show to hock his new film "The Last King of Scotland", I felt an unease in the pit of my stomach.  Every clip shown of the film throughout this ever-raging fire of awards season has been a full assault display of Whitaker in screaming pipes mode.  I came to expect that this was the only note the performance would deliver; one of excessive volume and fury-induced spittle.As it turns out, there's a reason why Whitaker has been generati...

Screen Actors Guild Awards Predict Oscars

Monday, January 29----In what will likely be a repeat by the time the Oscars are given out on February 25, the Screens Actors Guild gave out its top awards to film and television thespians in the convivial atmosphere of the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Winners were visibly moved to be recognized by their peers as they polished the speeches that they very likely will need to give again at the Kodak Theater for the big bonanza of the Academy Awards. The SAG Award for Best Ensemble Performa...

New York audiences are therefore in for a treat when the Film Society of Lincoln Center presents A WEEKEND WITH FOREST WHITAKER, a celebration of the man and his talent.

PAN'S LABYRINTH Named Best Picture By National Society of Film Critics

Monday, January 8-----The National Society of Film Critics (NSFC), one of the most prestigious film critics organizations in North America, has chosen the Spanish-language film PAN’S LABYRINTH as the Best Picture of the Year. The choice of a non-English language film harkens back to the heyday of foreign films in the 1960s and 1970s, when the films of Truffaut, Fellini, Bergman and Kurosawa were given the Society’s highest accolade. In fact, all top three vote-getters in the Best Picture c...
