MAD MAX: FURY ROAD 21st Critics’ Choice Awards Nominees

After last week’s nominations were revealed for the 22nd Annual SAG Awards and 73rd Golden Globes, it feels like it could be anyone’s game at this point. This morning the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA) and Broadcast Television Journalists Association (BTJA) announced their 21st Critics’ Choice Awards nominees with George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road leading the charge with 13 nods. Hosted by T.J. Miller, the winners will be revealed during a live broadcast from the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on A&E, Lifetime, and LMN on Sunday, January 17, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. EST/5:00 p.m. PST.

Mad Max: Fury Road has undoubtedly become the underdog favorite of this awards season, as it has become one of the most revered features of the year by critics, myself included – my review. The big topic of conversation, aside from gaining Best Picture recognition, is Charlize Theron’s nods for both Best Actress and Best Actress In An Action Movie. Tom Hardy, of course, is nominated for Best Actor In An Action Movie, but it’s George Miller for Best Director that has really invested my interest into whether he could be a contender come Oscars. The film has also garnered nominations for Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Hair and Makeup, Best Visual Effects, Best Action Movie, and Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie.

Trailing behind the whirlwind, critically acclaimed hit is Carol, The Martian, and The Revenant with nine nominations each. While this year’s big favorite, Spotlight, has earned itself eight nominations from critics, followed by The Big Short and The Hateful Eight with six each. Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, The Danish Girl, Jurassic World, and Sicario each earned five nominations and Room obtained four. Charlize Theron isn’t the only actress up for multiple Best Actress categories, as Jennifer Lawrence is up for three for her work in Joy and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, while Rachel McAdams is up for two awards for Spotlight and True Detective.

And while the film categories are all up in the air, the television categories prove that the increasing output of excellent programming continued this year with FX, ABC, and HBO both gaining 14 nominations each; FOX is close on their heels with 12 nods. The big standout series this year, as determined by critics, is FX’s Fargo with eight nominations. The Leftovers (HBO) and Transparent (Amazon) are not far behind with five nominations each; Black-ish (ABC), Mr. Robot (USA), and Penny Dreadful (Showtime) each earned four.

So what can we takeaway from this year’s 21st Critics’ Choice Awards nominees? For starters, no other awards group has seen more movies this year than the critics, assumably. It’s their jobs to assess the year in film. Who better has a sound voice of reasoning than those who sit in dark rooms and watch movies multiple times per week? In the long run, sure, all awards are practically meaningless gold statues, and the varying award categories the BFCA and BTJA have set have little influence when it comes to the Oscars, but if these voices of reason can help sway voters to at least make an earnest decision at the polls we can be safe in knowing we won’t have another year where a Shakespeare in Love wins against a Saving Private Ryan.

Netflix Leads 22nd Annual SAG Awards Nominees

The 22nd Annual SAG Awards nominees were revealed this morning at the Pacific Design Center’s Silver Screen Theater in West Hollywood. Anna Faris (CBS’s Mom; Scary Movie) and Anthony Mackie (Pain & Gain; Captain America: The Winter Soldier) were joined by SAG-AFTRA Executive Vice President Gabrielle Carteris to announce this year’s nominations, which will be awarded Live on TNT, TBS, truTV, sagawards.tntdrama.com, and truTV.com on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016 at 8:00 p.m. (ET) / 5:00 p.m. (PT).

Actors make up a fairly large chunk of Academy voters, so it’s no surprise that the SAG Awards are a fairly good indicator as to how the Oscars may shape up. I didn’t think my eyebrows could be raised any higher when I saw the list of nominees this morning. Peculiar is one word to put it. Maybe even jarring. If this is how the awards season is going to be, I don’t know if I want any part of it.

First of all, Trumbo leads the film categories with three nods – ensemble, Bryan Cranston for Best Male Actor, and Helen Mirren for Best Supporting Female Actor. The other nominees are spread thin, with two nods each, including Beasts of No Nation, The Big Short, Carol, The Danish Girl, Room, Spotlight, and Steve Jobs. Second, there were a handful of names that have completely come out of left field, including Sarah Silverman (I Smile Back) and Helen Mirren (Woman in Gold) for Best Actress; and Christian Bale (The Big Short) for Best Supporting Actor. And third, I’m surprised Beasts of No Nation and bested the likes of The Martian and The Hateful Eight for Best Ensemble.

There were also a good handful of snubs that include Jennifer Lawrence for Joy, anyone from Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, Matt Damon for The Martian, and Will Smith for Concussion. Of course they all can’t be chosen, and today’s nominees have certainly made the playing field rather interesting.

As for the television categories, they’ve all wound up pretty much how you would expect. The only kicker here is that Netflix leads the pack with eight nominations, which also has two in film categories as well. Game of Thrones, Homeland, and House of Cards are all tied at the top with three nods each. My biggest concern about the TV categories is that the industry continues to recognize Jim Parsons and The Big Bang Theory. It needs to stop.

Despite this year’s SAG Awards nominees not turning out exactly how some may have predicted, many fresh faces were recognized, which is always a good thing. Brie Larson, Rami Malek, Rooney Mara, Christina Ricci, Mark Rylance, Sarah Silverman, Jacob Tremblay, and Alicia Vikander have each earned their first individual Actor nomination with this upcoming SAG Awards.

Everything seems to be quite up in the air after the SAG Awards have shown that it could be anyone’s game. We will be keeping a close eye on the road to the Oscars with the Golden Globes nominations being announced tomorrow. Until then, your nominees are:

Movies on Blu-ray

Jurassic World (Colin Trevorrow) Rated PG-13 [124 min] – Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly. Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Nick Robinson

Jurassic World is an overly bloated sequel machine that never reaches the level of visual storytelling that Jurassic Park is able to achieve. There are no characters to truly resonate with, especially the kids, and the “villain’s” intentions are severely underwritten and almost cartoonish. The entire time while watching Jurassic World it felt as though Trevorrow was angry at the state of the industry and wanted to make it his mission to metaphorically comment on how corporate Hollywood has become. My positive feelings toward this film have greatly waned since I saw it in theaters. It’s a giant spectacle over-hyped by nostalgia.

Special features include:

  • Welcome to Jurassic World
  • Jurassic World: All-Access Pass
  • Innovation Center Tour with Chris Pratt
  • Jurassic’s Closest Shaves
  • Dinosaurs Roam Once Again
  • Chris & Colin Take on the World
  • Delete Scenes

The Vatican Tapes (Mark Neveldine) Rated PG-13 [91 min] – A priest and two Vatican exorcists must do battle with an ancient satanic force to save the soul of a young woman. Starring Olivia Taylor Dudley, Michael Peña, Dougray Scott, and Djimon Hounsou

Can we please stop with the demonic/satanic possession movies. There’s no original thoughts ehre, the scares are all predictable, and there’s nothing new this movie is trying to say. Granted, The Vatican Tapes does end on a unique turn of events, but the entire time it’s as if you’re watching someone tick off boxes from an exorcism checklist.

Special features include:

  • Audio Commentary with Director Mark Neveldine, Cinematographer Gerardo Madrazo and Actress Olivia Taylor Dudley
  • “Tale of the Tapes” Featurette
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Extended Scenes

Back to the Future: 30th Anniversary Trilogy Edition (Robert Zemeckis) Rated PG [116/108/118 min] – A young man is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence. Starring Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Thomas F. Wilson, Crispin Glover, Claudia Wells, and Mary Steenburgen

This is one of the best trilogies ever made. Period. End of discussion.

The Wolfpack (Crystal Moselle) [Limited] Rated R [80 min] – Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed, ‘The Wolfpack,’ the brothers spend their childhood reenacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. Their world is shaken up when one of the brothers escapes and everything changes. Starring Bhagavan Angulo, Govinda Angulo, Jagadisa Angulo, and Krsna Angulo

I’m not a documentary guy. I enjoy the good ones, but it takes a lot of energy for me to want to watch them. That being said, The Wolfpack is a fascinating true tale that feels unbelievable. The story is absolutely shocking to digest and the way the family presents itself and tells their story is simply incredible. You can’t take your eyes off the screen, every word must be heard.

Sunday Comic-Con 2015 Cosplay Photo Gallery

We finally made it. The final day of San Diego Comic-Con 2015. I hope you’ve survived the marathon of lines, panels, convention center food, celebrity sightings, big surprises, various smells, and more lines. What I’ve got for you is the last day of cosplay pics of all the wonderful, spectacular, inventive, creative, and magical people I met this Sunday. And don’t you worry, this may be the last day of SDCC, but this is not the final set of coplay pics I’ve got in the works. Stay tuned for more!

Weekend reflections:

  • For those who managed to go the distance and attend all four and a half days, I applaud your energy to keep cosplaying!
  • Again, Mad Max: Fury Road costumes continued to pop up, but I was surprised with the overall lack of Attack on Titan scout regiment troops.
  • I’m also shocked that I only ran into one person in a Star Trek uniform. Where were all the Trekkies at? I may have not been paying attention enough, but I really didn’t see anyone in Trek garb other than the one in the gallery below.
  • No love for The Fantastic Four at all either. I saw two Doctor Dooms the entire weekend.
  • And where are all the Avatar/Legend of Korra fans?
  • There was also a lack in Deadpools and Doctors too!
  • Harley Quinn is the new Slave Leia; last year it was Daenerys Targaryen.
  • I wish I encountered more mashups, but I think 2015 was the year for genderbends and crossplaying.
  • I really should start watching more anime and play more video games.
  • You can’t do Bane properly unless you can do the crazy eyes, as seen below.
  • Cosplayers dressed as Septa Unella made the weekend for me. SHAME!

Box Office Battlefield: Jurassic World

Every week, movie studios select candidates to enter the glorious battlefield for your hard-earned dollars. The weekend warriors of June 12, 2015 includes Jurassic World as well as a two limited releases. Box Office Battlefield is here to help you decide which movie(s) will take priority over others and determine who will be victorious. Should you see ’em, skip ’em, or rent ’em?

Last weekend, Paul Feig’s Spy took first place in theaters with San Andreas and Insidious: Chapter 3 close behind. Not very franchise blockbuster-y films, this weekend promises a bigger, badder, and more shiny sequel. Can Jurassic World dust off the franchise to reign supreme? Hold on to your butts! This is the Box Office Battlefield:

Jurassic World Title Movie Logo

Jurassic World (Colin Trevorrow) Rated PG-13 [124 min] – Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly. Starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Nick Robinson

Rotten Tomatoes Score: Critics – 71% • Audience – 87%

My review:

I honestly had very little expectations going in to see Jurassic World, and those expectations were met. The film has some decent entertainment value, but in terms of being something bigger than its whole with strong reflective themes, you’re going to have to keep watching the original Jurassic Park. The theme park world they create and the evolution of John Hammond’s idea is very realized and fun to see, but it’s hardly experienced to be amazed by it all. The use of the classic John Williams theme is very underwhelming compared to its first use in Jurassic Park. The characters are well cast with some fine actors, but very surface level. The fact that they have to try and make someone the bad guy is really forced and feels inorganic to the story. I highly suggest skipping it in 3D. MATINEE IT!

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Movie Title Logo

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Alfonso Gomez-Rejon) [Limited] Rated PG-13 [105 min] – High schooler Greg, who spends most of his time making parodies of classic movies with his co-worker Earl, finds his outlook forever altered after befriending a classmate who has just been diagnosed with cancer. Starring Thomas Mann, RJ Cyler, Olivia Cooke, Nick Offerman, and Connie Britton

Rotten Tomatoes Score: Critics – 84% • Audience – 92%

My review:

The more time I’ve give to Me and Earl and the Dying Girl to sit with me, the greater the story has resonated with my emotions. MaEatDG is one of those special indie darlings out of Sundance that you can’t help but feel charmed by because of its raw honesty and well-developed characters. I was kind of taken aback by the awkward chuckles when I first watched the trailer in theaters with a crowd when the title card appeared, but I can understand how it can be a bit unsettling. But that feeling kind of plays into the personality of the film, which only strengthens its appeal and uniqueness. SEE THIS FILM!

The Wolfpack 2015 Title Movie Logo

The Wolfpack (Crystal Moselle) [Limited] Rated R [80 min] – Locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed, ‘The Wolfpack,’ the brothers spend their childhood reenacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. Their world is shaken up when one of the brothers escapes and everything changes. Starring Bhagavan Angulo, Govinda Angulo, Jagadisa Angulo, and Krsna Angulo

Rotten Tomatoes Score: Critics – 76% • Audience – 76%

Their reviews:

“The sheltered world of the Angulos, informed by cinema more than the teeming city right outside their apartment windows, is a haunting and utterly unique one.” – Alison Willmore (BuzzFeed)

“At its best, The Wolfpack helps us to see the cinema in the world, and not the other way around.” – David Ehrlich (Little White Lies)

My take:

I have not seen this film, but it looks like a very good sit if you’re a lover of cinema and want to see how that affected the lives of these people.

Since Jurassic World is the only wide release this weekend, and the fact that Spy and Insidious: Chapter 3 didn’t open with outstanding numbers last weekend, there’s a pretty clear winner here. The original Jurassic Park opened in 1993 with a domestic gross of $47 million. My guess for this weekend is that it will gain at least $65 million. So as it stands, I believe the victor for this weekend will be:

 

Winner: Jurassic World

Final ‘Jurassic World’ Trailer Showcases a Clever Girl [125 Screenshots]

With the summer moving in hot, Universal Pictures has unleashed one final Jurassic World trailer that leaves nothing to chance. The last trailer that debuted during the Super Bowl earlier this year gave us a further taste of the spectacle of what’s to come, whereas the first trailer focused more on the nostalgia of the franchise. What I’m seeing in the final Jurassic World trailer is conventional summer blockbuster advertising.

It isn’t enough to prey on those who adore this beloved franchise, the marketing team needs to ensure folks that there will be action, guns, death, and sexual innuendo to appease popcorn audiences. The end result leaves little to the imagination, revealing the new Indominous Rex terrorizing our puny human character who deliver as much exposition as possible in the short two and a half minutes to sell the film.

I’m still hopeful that there is more to Jurassic World than meets the eye, but I wish they hadn’t chosen to include this much eye candy in this trailer. I see Chris Pratt’s character taking on the task and ideology of both Ian Malcolm and Alan Grant. While Bryce Dallas Howard takes on more of the business side of John Hammond’s character, with boobs, who will learn the precious meaning of life and humanity.

There are still a few secrets to the story that haven’t been hinted at, such as who is Vincent D’Onofrio’s character and what is is involvement in all of this and what’s the relationship between the kids and the rest of the story? As long as everything fits organically within the movie I’ll leave happier than when I go in to see it.

Here’s the official production notes of Jurassic World courtesy of Universal Pictures:

Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure based on characters created by Michael Crichton. The screenplay is by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver and Trevorrow & Derek Connolly, and the story is by Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers.

Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Judy Greer, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, and Omar Sy. The film is set to release in theaters on June 12, 2015.
