Yesterday, February 23, 2014, was the greatest day ever. It was the greatest day of all time because both Piers Morgan and Alec Baldwin, the Lords of white male privilege, took a major step back from public life.Kind of.CNN announced it plans to end Morgan’s prime-time show, and Alec Baldwin penned a column for New York magazine hilariously titled “I Give Up.”And while Morgan and Baldwin are taking a hiatus from their prominent pedestals for different reasons, the paths that led them to this moment are remarkably similar.Morgan supposedly lost his prime-time spot because the ratings for his show suck, but he never had a consistently large audience, so pinning the blame on low audience numbers is an incomplete picture of what happened. The New York Times‘ David Carr has a weird nationalistic take on what he thinks went down, blaming the show’s cancellation on Morgan’s infatuation with soccer and gun regulation. And while I don’t doubt Morgan … [Read more...] about ‘I Give Up’: Battle Cry of the Privileged
After the botched New York thriller Dream House, Jim Sheridan returns to his native Eire, and stirring material, with the dark romance of The Secret Scripture. Rooney Mara and Theo James deliver their most richly nuanced screen work to date in the drama, a memory piece whose true subject is Ireland’s tangled, bloody history and the Church’s toxic paternalism toward women.Handsomely lensed by the gifted cinematographer Mikhail Krichman, who has worked on all of Andrey Zvyagintsev’s features, the movie has a lush gloom that suits its central mystery. That mystery, the circumstances surrounding one woman’s condemnation to an insane asylum, loses its hold in a final rush of revelations that fits the pieces together all too precisely. The neat wrap-up doesn’t undo the power of what precedes it, but it certainly lessens the effect. However welcome the redemptive flickers of light at film’s end, the way they’re arrived at will pull many viewers out of … [Read more...] about Film Review: The Secret Scripture
Justin Timberlake explained why he wanted to pay tribute to Prince during his Super Bowl halftime performance later Sunday night. Appearing on NBC's The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Timberlake didn't directly address the criticism surrounding the tribute, but did explain why he wanted to incorporate it into his performance. "It's a moment for me, and if I'm being quite honest, it's because he's always been the pinnacle of musicianship," Timberlake said. "And when we decided that the serendipity and synergy [of being] in Minnesota — he's such a special thing here aside from what he is all over the world. I just felt like I wanted to do something for this city and something for him that would just be the ultimate homage to what I consider the GOAT [Greatest of All Time] of musicians." He also noted that Questlove, who is Fallon's bandleader, approved of the performance. "Questlove is the encyclopedia on music, but I also feel like a gatekeeper on Prince, so if I got the … [Read more...] about Super Bowl: Justin Timberlake Reveals How the Prince Tribute Happened
Tom Hardy didn't bring out the fangs for the Venom trailer, but he did bring out a classic Hardy monologue. The first trailer highlights Hardy as Eddie Brock, shown here getting checked out at a hospital, presumably after an encounter with a certain alien symbiote. Did the trailer Sony hopes will help launch a shared universe of Spider-Man characters work, even without a look at the Marvel antihero? The team at Heat Vision takes a closer look. Ryan Parker: I can't decide if this trailer is brilliant or a total dud. As I see it, they either have no CG shots completely rendered or they didn't want to give anything away. Perhaps they didn't want the Spider-Man 3 comparisons right out of the gate? But the problem is, some fanboys are going to be super annoyed now because of it, which is also not a great way to kick things off. Katie Kilkenny: I will be the first to admit that I'm a Tom Hardy fangirl, but this teaser set up an intriguing character study that … [Read more...] about Does the ‘Venom’ Trailer Work Without Any Venom?
