Flavorwire’s Guide to 2015 Summer Movies

This Friday, just like the first weekend of every May since 2007, a new movie based on a Marvel comic book will open in thousands of theaters across the country, will make all the money, and will serve as the official starter pistol for summer movie season. And for many a seasoned moviegoer, that’s a cue for despair; after all, summer has become synonymous with big, bloated, stupid blockbusters of the Transformers school. And make no mistake, there’s plenty of those on the runway this season (how ya doin’, Terminator Genisys, it’s pretty funny that you’re actually going with that spelling). But don’t go into cinematic hibernation just yet; there’s also a steady stream of first-rate indie-flick counterprogramming on the runway, and some of the big movies actually sound pretty good. So, as a public service to you, the discerning moviegoer, we’ve assembled a month-by-month look at what might actually be worth your time and… Read More

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Is Not Eddie Redmayne’s ‘Norbit’

Return with me, won’t you, to late winter, 2007. JT’s “What Goes Around… Comes Around” is on the radio. Prince just rocked the Super Bowl XLI halftime show. American Idol still nabs the top two Nielsen slots, week in and week out. And after releasing five tepid vehicles (Showtime, I Spy, Daddy Day Care, The Haunted Mansion, and one of the biggest flops of all time, Pluto Nash) in 2002 and 2003 alone, onetime superstar Eddie Murphy had disappeared from the screen for three years. But he returned with 2006’s Dreamgirls, crafting an electrifying performance that prompted cheers from audiences and critics alike. Murphy won the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for Best Supporting Actor, and was frontrunner for the Oscar. And then, two weeks before the Academy Awards, Paramount released Norbit, a reviled, offensive slapstick comedy that featured the Oscar hopeful in three roles, including an overweight woman who made Martin Lawrence’s portrayal of “Big Momma” seem incisive and nuanced. Murphy lost Best Supporting Actor to Alan Arkin. … Read More

‘Foxcatcher’ Rightly Sacrificed Mark Schultz’s Story to Craft a Sharp American Allegory

“Everything I’ve ever said positive about the movie I take back. I hate it. i hate it. i hate it. I hate it. i hate it. i hate it. I hate it,” Mark Schultz, the wrestler and subject of Foxcatcher, tweeted last week. Also: “YOU CROSSED THE LINE [Bennett] MILLER. WE’RE DONE. YOU’RE CAREER IS OVER. YOU THINK I CAN’T DO IT. WATCH ME.” (Schultz has since removed the tweets and substituted them for a far more civil Facebook post.) … Read More

Flavorwire’s 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2015

A new year is upon us, and a peek ahead at 2015’s cinematic offerings is… well, kinda depressing. As you peruse the many 2015 preview pieces on movie sites, there’s a noticeable sameness — namely because they’re chock full of sequels. And some of those sequels (The Avengers, Mad Max, The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect, Magic Mike, Mission: Impossible, and, yes, Star Wars) might be great! But their domination of said lists speaks to the weakness of said lists; we’re banking anticipation almost exclusively on known quantities, from earlier films and filmmakers. And with Sundance and the rest of the spring festivals still on the horizon, we can’t yet guess at the smaller sleepers. BUT, nonetheless, we present this look at a few slightly off-the-grid and out-of-the-box movies that might be worth talking about this… Read More
