Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
Spoiler Alert: The following review contains mild spoilers for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

Surely, all “Star Wars” fans hope each new installment will be the best ever. But in the case of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” that seemed like an actual possibility. Written and directed by Rian Johnson, a Sundance alum who established his serious-filmmaker bona fides with his 2005 indie debut, “Brick,” before graduating to young Christopher Nolan territory via the relatively big-budget sci-fi movie “Looper,” Episode VIII seemed to have everything going for it.

To the extent that “The Force Awakens” was essentially a heightened reboot of “A New Hope,” recycling many of the 1977 original’s thrills in fresh form with a mostly new cast, this latest chapter was positioned as the new trilogy’s “The Empire Strikes Back” — which is to say, a darker, more serious chapter (commonly regarded as the series’ best) that deepens the underlying mythology, shapes its emerging

75th Golden Globe Nominations – In An Industry Of Snubs It’s Hard To Stand Out

Award season is a world of snub, complaints, and second-guessing, but the recent announcement of The Golden Globe nominations already has people talking, and tweeting. Among the most noteworthy misses, in a year when the nominations are mostly academic, is The Big Sick and Wonder Woman, both of which got no attention at all from The Golden Globe Awards.

Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.

Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.

Golden Globes Nominations 2018: Greta Gerwig, Patty Jenkins Among Women Shut Out of Directing Category

There’s no doubting that 2017 has been a strong year for women both onscreen and behind the scenes. Take, for instance, the Primetime Emmys, which saw women dominate with big wins for Big Little Lies, The Handmaid’s Tale, Ava DuVernay, Master of None writer Lena Waithe and director Reed Morano.

On the film side, Sofia Coppola became the second woman ever to win the Cannes Film Festival prize for Best Director for The Beguiled, while Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird, is the best reviewed movie ever on Rotten Tomatoes. Patty JenkinsWonder Woman earned over $800 million at the worldwide box office, far surpassing the recent wave of DC Comic films. Meanwhile, DuVernay finished production on Disney’s upcoming adaption of A Wrinkle in Time, becoming the first woman of color to helm a $100 million movie.

But when the nominations for the 2018 Golden Globes were announced on Monday, women were not among

The Golden Globes are absolutely useless in predicting Oscars success

Tom Beasley argues that the Golden Globes do not deserve their position as a major awards ceremony and Oscars precursor…

The film world briefly lit up with awards excitement earlier today with the announcement of the nominations for the 2018 Golden Globes. It was Guillermo del Toro’s warm and wildly enjoyable fantasy romance The Shape of Water that led the field, with seven nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Also featured prominently were Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Christopher Nolan’s war thriller Dunkirk and gay romance Call Me By Your Name. It was a less exciting day for those behind The Florida Project, which was shut out in all of the major categories, with the exception of Willem Dafoe for Best Supporting Actor.

The eyebrow-raiser, though, was the appearance of Jordan Peele’s potent horror satire Get Out, which popped up in several of the comedy categories, including

Historical Dramas Are Difficult to Score, but Attract Awards Attention

Historical dramas and those rooted in real-life events can be among the most challenging to score, but also yield a proportionally high number of Oscar winners. Four such live-action releases are among the most talked-about this awards season.

All the Money in the World

Music by Daniel Pemberton

For Ridley Scott’s film about the 1973 kidnapping of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty’s grandson, now completing post-production after the last-minute replacement of lead Kevin Spacey by Christopher Plummer, English composer Pemberton made a bold choice: voices of many kinds, from operatic to Italian folk singers.

“Getty sees himself as this grand figure,” Pemberton explains. “We have medieval voices, which refer back to his belief that he was descended from [Roman emperor] Hadrian; and the more grand operatic music, which was a slight reflection of Rome [where much of the film was shot] but also Getty’s own vision of self-identity.”

For the kidnappers, whose world is “grubby, rural, coarse and out in the middle of nowhere

Mary J. Blige Joins Illustrious Group of Golden Globes Double Music-Acting Nominees

Mary J. Blige Joins Illustrious Group of Golden Globes Double Music-Acting Nominees
Perhaps the most surprising double-nomination for this year’s Golden Globes: the twin nods given to Mary J. Blige for best supporting actress and best song — for the film “Mudbound” and its song “Mighty River.” With those, Blige becomes the first performer to be simultaneously nominated in song and acting since John C. Reilly got dual nods for “Walk Hard” 10 years ago. Barbra Streisand, Bjork, Beyonce and Dolly Parton are the other female singer/actors who have scored nominations in both categories in the past, while Reilly and Neil Diamond are the male dual nominees. Only Streisand has won both (for the 1976 film “A Star Is Born”).

Few other surprises popped up in the Globes’ music categories. Other best song contenders include “Remember Me” from “Coco” and “This is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” both of which are frequently cited as among the frontrunners in the Oscars’ best song contest.

Film News: ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Tops Chicago Film Critics Association 2017 Best Film Noms

Chicago – The eclectic coming-of-age love story, “Call Me By Your Name” topped the nominations list with eight for the 2017 Chicago Film Critics Association (Cfca) Film Awards, to be announced on Wednesday, December 13th. Director Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of Andre Aciman’s novel garnered nods for Best Picture, Guadagnino for Best Director, and acting noms for Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Timothee Chalamet.

The rest of the field for Best Picture has a variety of genres and themes. Christopher Nolan’s epic “Dunkirk” shares the stage with Greta Gerwig’s intent autobiographical “Lady Bird,” Guillermo Del Toro’s magical “The Shape of Water” and the strange-but-heralded “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” The symbolic horror of “Get Out” got first time director Jordan Peele a nomination (joining first timer Greta Gerwig), the late Harry Dean Stanton was recognized for Best Actor in “Lucky,” and Willem Dafoe got a Best Supporting Actor nomination for “The Florida Project.

Golden Globes Slammed For Shutting Out Women and Minorities in Best Director Race

Golden Globes Slammed For Shutting Out Women and Minorities in Best Director Race
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) is facing backlash over this year’s Golden Globe nominations for Best Director. The five filmmakers who earned a nomination this year are all men: Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Christopher Nolan (“Dunkirk”), Ridley Scott (“All the Money in the World”), and Steven Spielberg (“The Post”).

Considering what a strong year it was for women and minority directors like Greta Gerwig, Jordan Peele, Dee Rees, and Patty Jenkins, it’s especially unfortunate how male-dominated the race is this year. Del Toro is the only minority nominated in what many people agree should’ve been a banner year for an inclusive Best Director race.

Golden Globes 2018 Film Surprises and Snubs: ‘The Greatest Showman’ Lands 3, But ‘The Big Sick’ Is Shut Out
Fox Searchlight had a lovely Golden Globes nominations morning, notching 15 nominations as Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” continued its Critics Choice surge with seven nominations, followed by Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” with six.

Finally, Working Title/Focus Features’ other World War II drama, “Darkest Hour,” seems to be strictly a Gary Oldman Drama Actor play, while Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread” landed nods for Daniel Day-Lewis and Johnny Greenwood for Score. Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” (A24) posted strong results on the Comedy side (four), but no director nod. In fact, the Globes gave all five director slots to men.

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes
Nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards are in as the 2017-2018 film awards season adds yet another notch to its belt. There were snubs, there were surprises, but nothing about Monday morning’s announcement would appear to have significantly altered the course of the circuit. Then again, nothing ever really does; these are just the opinions of a few dozen international journalists who happen to have their own highly rated, liquored-up, televised awards ceremony. Let’s dive in and take a look at what all of it actually means …

Star power

The HFPA has long been noted for its love affair with the stars. This year the group found ways to ensure that people like Angelina Jolie (“First They Killed My Father”), Steve Carell (“Battle of the Sexes”), Tom Hanks (“The Post”), Denzel Washington (“Roman J. Israel, Esq.”), Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman”), Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound”), and even Mariah Carey and Nick Jonas (songs

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through
Every awards group has their trademark quirks, and the HFPA loves nothing more than anointing the wunderkinds. And this year didn’t disappoint: On the TV side, voters embraced Showtime’s “Smilf” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”; in film, breakouts included Margot Robbie, Daniel Kaluuya, and Timothée Chalamet.

Several others across film and TV were also rewarded for their work with their first-ever Golden Globes nominations.

Movies:

Out of both actress categories, there was one sole new nominee: Margot Robbie landed her first nod in the musical or comedy field for her heralded turn as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in “I, Tonya.” She’s up against previous winners Judi Dench (“Victoria & Abdul”), Helen Mirren (“The Leisure Seeker”) and Emma Stone (“Battle of the Sexes”) and previous nominee Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird.”) The actress in a drama category is all previous Globe winners: Jessica Chastain (“Molly’s Game”), Sally Hawkins (“The Shape of Water”), [link

The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Golden Globe Nominations: No Wonder Woman!

  • PEOPLE.com
The Biggest Snubs and Surprises of the 2018 Golden Globe Nominations: No Wonder Woman!
Among the many surprises in the Golden Globes movie nominations, announced Monday, were bids for a movie best known for no longer starring Kevin Spacey and the lack of love shown to Wonder Woman.

All the Money in the World, the Ridley Scott-directed film about the John Paul Getty III kidnapping, received a nod for best supporting actor Christopher Plummer, whose performance as rich old J. Paul Getty was shot and edited into the movie in only the past month — seemingly the blink of an eye — after Spacey, amid escalating allegations about inappropriate sexual behavior, was completely edited out.
