Judi Dench loves ‘behaving badly’ as Queen VictoriaTIFF2017_JudiDench_Portrait

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 18:29:00 -0400

Queen Victoria unexpectedly met the man of her late-life dreams at her Golden Jubilee, in 1887. She was long widowed after Prince Albert’s death in 1861 and bored out of her mind with public appearances. She was also eating more rich desserts than her royal colon could smoothly process at age 68. But she still...

Emma Stone is an ace in tennis biopic ‘Battle of the Sexes’image-0004cb53-66f2-4143-a2ba-eea5d8ff2fcaA.JPG

Ask why the guys are making more than the women in professional tennis and prepare for a deluge of BS. “The men are more exciting to watch.” “The men have families.” “It’s not your fault. It’s just biology.” This is what tennis star Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) discovers at the start of “Battle of...

‘Lego Ninjago Movie’ is still pretty awesomelegoninjago

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 15:40:29 -0400

Everything is still mostly awesome. While dreck such as “The Emoji Movie” and “Cars 3” treats kids’ impressionable brains like garbage dumps, the “Lego Movie” series — clever, heartwarming and hilarious — rises above. The latest, “The Lego Ninjago Movie,” is a chip off the old blocks. Now, the city of Ninjago is under siege...

Elton John is being held captive by Julianne Moore, who is a billionairess drug lord. Colin Firth sees phantom butterflies in the air, a nasty side effect of temporary amnesia. Pedro Pascal twirls a high-tech lasso while wearing leather chaps. This is not a recap of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” but the plot of the absurd...

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 15:16:53 -0400

“The Sound of Music” is still recognized as a beloved Hollywood musical that also happens to be the third-highest grossing film of all time behind “Star Wars” and “Gone With the Wind.” However, the 1965 classic was originally plagued with problems. The movie, which tells the real-life story of the Von Trapp family and their...

Jake Gyllenhaal plays Boston Marathon bombing’s hero in ‘Stronger’STRONGER_SG_00316.jpg

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 17:12:57 -0400

Gentle reminder to Hollywood from a Massachusetts native: Not everyone in the Boston area talks like they’re from Southie. In “Stronger,” the true story of Boston Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman, Jake Gyllenhaal makes a meal of his character’s dropped R’s, as does everyone playing his working-class Chelmsford loved ones. “Yuh f - - kin’ legs? Theyah gone,...

Moviegoers have been absolutely trashing ‘Mother!’mother!

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 21:49:40 -0400

The new film “Mother!” starring Jennifer Lawrence is getting grounded by moviegoers. Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the horror flick scored an F rating on CinemaScore, which has been polling audiences since 1978. The movie is underperforming at the box office, too: It’s expected to take in just $8 million this weekend. Critics, on the other...

Nancy Cartwright won an Emmy for her work as Bart Simpson without ever being nominated for the award. Back in 1992, Cartwright and fellow “The Simpsons” voiceover actors Dan Castellaneta (Homer), Julie Kavner (Marge), Yeardley Smith (Lisa) and Marcia Wallace (Mrs. Crabapple) were given Emmys by the TV Academy’s Governors Board. “There was no voiceover...

Oh, Ma god, Aronofsky’s ‘Mother!’ is terrifyingmother!

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 18:09:37 -0400

“I’m really sorry for what’s about to happen,” director Darren Aronofsky said before showing “Mother!” at a packed Toronto Film Festival theater on Saturday. Calm down, “Black Swan” guy. Viewers will survive; some may see, as I did, scenes he intended to be terrifying as ridiculously over-the-top. But “Mother!” is undeniably a wild, memorable ride....

Ben Stiller is utterly insufferable in excellent ‘Brad’s Status’Stiller-Fischer_BradsStatus_Amazon

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 17:52:28 -0400

Ben Stiller is impressively insufferable in “Brad’s Status,” a bleak comedy from writer/director Mike White about middle-aged angst, class privilege and the topical notion that everyone except you is living a perfect, happy life. Stiller’s Brad is taking his son (Austin Abrams) on a college tour, an event that should be a life-changing one for...

Hotties, car crashes, explosions: ‘American Assassin’ is a bro’s wet dreamoBrien-Negar_AmericanAssassin

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 17:48:14 -0400

Many male moviegoers live and die by the Man Test, a measure of the film’s dudeliness that demands it feature three or more of the following elements to win over the hearts and minds of guys: explosions, car chases, exotic locales, beautiful women, kickass fights. Immensely satisfying action thriller “American Assassin,” based on Vince Flynn’s...

As this year’s Toronto Film Festival moves toward its closing night on Sunday, we take a look back at some of its most eye-catching, and potentially award-garnering, breakout performances. The clear winner of the title Most Celebrated Newcomer is 21-year-old Timothée Chalamet, who was featured in three critically acclaimed films at the fest that couldn’t...

Why is ‘Three Billboards’ — a mostly great film — so ridiculously mean?Three_Billboards_01

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 20:28:48 -0400

I’m of two minds about “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” On the one hand, this drama is the best yet from playwright and filmmaker Martin McDonagh (“In Bruges,” “Seven Psychopaths”), a towering achievement that will no doubt put in an impressive showing come Oscar nomination time. It’s one of Frances McDormand’s greatest performances: As the...

Well, now we know how she got that golden lasso. “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women” digs up the real-life roots of the comic-book Amazon who took this summer’s box office by storm — and it is one juicy backstory, although director Angela Robinson’s burnished rendition frequently plays it too safe. Luke Evans (“Beauty and...

“Veep” creator Armando Iannucci has spent enough time sending up America’s politics, he told the Toronto International Film Festival audience at the premiere of his new satire. The new locale? Moscow circa 1953 for “The Death of Stalin,” a delicious black comedy based on a French graphic novel, with easily as much bite as his...

She was sidelined in “The Legend of Tarzan” and underused in “Suicide Squad,” but nobody’s going to forget Margot Robbie’s blazing performance in the figure-skating biopic “I, Tonya.” Profane, darkly funny, violent and truly tragic, Craig Gillespie’s film chronicles the uber-American story of Tonya Harding, the Olympic competitor who shot to worldwide notoriety after being...

George Clooney’s ‘Suburbicon’ is bizarrely tone-deafsuburbicon_01

Sat, 09 Sep 2017 11:30:09 -0400

George Clooney directing a Coen brothers screenplay would seem a natural match-up. He’s been reliably great in their films, even lesser ones like “Hail, Caesar!” But “Suburbicon” is a surprisingly tone-deaf combination of two wildly different stories that simply don’t work in concert. What’s most cringey — especially for a movie arriving so soon after...
