‘House of Gucci’ Trailer Boasts Style for Miles

One of the more anticipated films of the upcoming holiday season, Ridley Scott's House of Gucci dropped a trailer today in addition to several buzz-inducing character posters. Right off the bat, the film is already getting recognition for its hair and makeup work, thanks to the shocking transformation of Jared Leto -- unrecognizable in his character poster and in the just-released trailer. What to make of the film itself? It certainly looks visually stunning. It's a well cut trailer that gets tons of mileage out of the costumes, production design, famous faces, and a brilliantly chosen "Heart of Glass." But...

The State of the Race: How the Left Was Won

I was sent an anonymous DM today that I would like to answer publicly - I have no idea who this person is. It's an "alt account" by someone who is like so many others - living with the growing dread that we just moved through something that has forever altered how we evaluate film: The left has won. Like is there any coming back from this? All of Gen z is on board as is the entire media. How do you beat that? It seems insurmountable. Is it insurmountable? Maybe. Maybe this is the new normal or maybe it...

Stillwater Might Actually Be a Film For Everyone

A while back Matt Damon did something no one else in Hollywood, or those that cover Hollywood, films or the Oscar race would ever do. He showed compassion for Trump supporters. This didn't turn out to be a big deal as one might assume. That's maybe because the movie he was in Cannes to represent, Tom McCarthy's Stillwater, has yet to hit theaters. Perhaps the hive mind has not awakened to this aspect of the movie, in which he portrays a rural oil worker from Oklahoma. Or maybe they just couldn't bring themselves to summon hatred with such a kind...

Reframe: Michael Mann’s Ali

There is a version of Ali that would have pleased almost everyone. A safe version that played like a ‘greatest hits’ record and gave you all of the swells and swoons the average moviegoer could have hoped for. It’s clear from the first moments of the film that Michael Mann did not make that version.  The first nine minutes of Mann’s Ali is one of the most remarkable intros to any film I’ve ever seen. In that short span of time, Mann shows us a young Ali reading the Emmet Till headline and also a mature Ali witnessing a speech...

Predictions Friday – Best Picture, Best Director, and the Changing Landscape of Film

In a surprise twist, a new poll released indicates that Generation Z does not approve of "cancel culture." If that is true, and if the lurch towards social justice by Big Corporate and Hollywood is designed to appeal to the future generation, something has quietly and silently flown off the rails. The corporations, Hollywood, and the media tend to draw its information from Twitter. But Twitter is comprised of 15% of users who dominate 80% of its content.  That is not representative of the majority. It could very well be that the industry that seeks to appeal to Gen-Z is,...

Michael Patterson’s Telluride Predictions

Every year, our good friend Michael Patterson keeps tracks of movies that may or may not be going to Telluride. It is a bit of a game of cat and mouse since Telluride doesn't release their lineup until the day before the festival. Patterson has surprisingly not been given press accreditation to the festival again this year. He does cover the festival probably better than anyone else online for my money. Anyway, he writes about this week's potential lineup compared to last week's: Well, this is weird.  Normally. the first Ten bets after Toronto's first announcement of titles causes a...

‘I May Destroy You,’ WandaVision,’ & ‘Ted Lasso’ Lead TCA Award Noms

Just days after Apple TV+'s Ted Lasso overperformed at this year's Emmy Awards, the show picked up nods for Individual Achievement in Comedy for Jason Sudeikis, New Program, and Achievement in Comedy. Emmy snub, Girls5Eva, picked up a nomination for Achievement in Comedy while Thuso Mbedu received notice for her subtle, powerful work on The Underground Railroad--also unjustly snubbed by the Television Academy. Recent Comedy winners include Schitt's Creek and Fleabag. Will Ted Lasso easily walk away with honors at TCA and then the Emmys? Individual Achievement in Drama Michaela Coel, “I May Destroy You” (HBO) Ethan Hawke, “The Good...
