‘Miss Bala’ Review: Gina Rodriguez Is All Bark and No Bite in Lifeless Crime Thriller

‘Miss Bala’ Review: Gina Rodriguez Is All Bark and No Bite in Lifeless Crime Thriller
Gina Rodriguez has star power in spades. That megawatt smile, radiant warmth, and killer comic timing made “Jane the Virgin” one of the most infectious comedies on television. She was surprisingly understated as foil to Natalie Portman in Alex Garland’s “Annihilation,” proving she has dramatic chops. But it took a cerebral sci-fi art film to tamp down the bubbly persona that makes her such an obvious fit for comedy. She has a magnetic screen presence that could carry the kind of genuine Hollywood romantic comedy audiences are so desperate for right now.

Why, then, is Rodriguez playing a helpless human trafficking victim in a hokey crime thriller when she should be reviving the rom-com? Unfortunately for “Miss Bala,” the fact that Rodriguez is entirely miscast is the least of this movie’s problems.

Directed by Catherine Hardwicke, “Miss Bala” is a remake of the 2011 Mexican film of the same name.

Box Office: Can Gina Rodriguez’s ‘Miss Bala’ Break ‘Glass” Streak?
Gina Rodriguez is taking on the unlikeliest of competitors this weekend — Super Bowl Liii.

The actress, best known for her titular role on the CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” is heading to the big screen for her first starring role in a studio film with “Miss Bala.” Sony’s thriller, based on the well-regarded 2011 Mexican crime movie, is hoping to entice moviegoers as Sunday’s primetime match between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots draws fans outside of theaters. The biggest weekend in football tends to slow ticket sales in North America as people park themselves in front of television sets to watch the championship game.

With a primarily Latinx cast and crew, “Miss Bala” should have added appeal to Latinos, a demographic that tends to turn out in force at multiplexes. The drug-cartel drama is expected to generate between $6 million and $10 million when it opens in over 2,000 locations.

Is Elsie Fisher (‘Eighth Grade’) on her way to becoming the 3rd youngest Oscar nominee for Best Actress?

Is Elsie Fisher (‘Eighth Grade’) on her way to becoming the 3rd youngest Oscar nominee for Best Actress?
It has been a good couple of weeks for “Eighth Grade.” It was one of the top nominees at the Independent Spirit Awards, earning four bids including Best Feature and Best Actress (Elsie Fisher). And at the Gotham Awards for independent film on November 26 it won both of its noms: Breakthrough Director (Bo Burnham) and Breakthrough Actor (Fisher again). It’s early yet, but could Fisher be on her way to becoming one of the youngest Best Actress nominees in Oscar history?

Fisher plays Kayla Day, who is awkwardly coping with her last week of middle school. It’s one of the year’s most acclaimed films with an 89 on MetaCritic and a 99% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Fisher’s performance was singled out by many, including Ann Hornaday (Washington Post), who praised her “masterful command of vulnerability, anxiety, resilience and steadfast self-belief.” And Jake Coyle (Associated Press) called her a “remarkably natural young performer.

‘Vox Lux’ Helmer Brady Corbet to Write, Direct ‘The Brutalist’
Brady Corbet will write and direct “The Brutalist,” a drama about a Hungarian-born Jewish architect’s life in post-World War II America.

“The Brutalist” will reunite the filmmaker with Andrew Lauren Prods. (Alp), the company that helped finance Corbet’s “Vox Lux.” The new project was unveiled at the Toronto Intl.

It will also screen at Toronto.

“The Brutalist’s” central character is initially forced to toil in poverty after emigrating to the U.S. but his fortunes change after he wins a prized contract. Alp will develop the script with Corbet and finance the feature. The film will be produced by Andrew Lauren and D.J. Gugenheim

‘Eighth Grade’ Is the First Movie to Nail Youth Culture in the Digital Age

‘Eighth Grade’ Is the First Movie to Nail Youth Culture in the Digital Age
I keep reading that “Eighth Grade,” Bo Burnham’s captivating drama about a shy but intensely aware girl named Kayla (Elsie Fisher), who’s doing all she can to navigate her final week of middle school, is a movie that’s universal and eternal — one that captures the age-old zone of pimply bashful awkwardness that defines the moment of growing up, the moment when kids are teetering on the fault line between innocence and experience, childish dreaming and social networking, their identities stranded between two worlds. I don’t disagree with the praise; the movie is a minor marvel. Yet the bracing quality of “Eighth Grade,” the one that makes it pinpoint and artful, can’t necessarily be reduced to a common rite of passage that We Can All Relate To. A lot of folks who are showering the film with accolades sound like they want to feel younger than they are.

Film Review: The Artist’s Obsession in ‘Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti’

Chicago – The art masters, and the masterpieces they have created, become a background culture in our lives… even if we don’t necessarily know the artist. Paul Gauguin is one of those painters-as-cultural-influencer, and a vital point in his artistic life is told in the film “Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti.”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Vincent Cassel – best known to American audiences in “Ocean’s Twelve” (and “Thirteen”) – dives into the role of Paul Gauguin like a man possessed, and in many ways this was Gauguin’s most obsessive period. He left everything behind as a French painter to find his “artistic” self in Tahiti, and as many great masters do, paid the price. The story is fascinating and frustrating, much like the artist himself, but doesn’t project an understanding to the artist’s inner life or the Tahitian natives around him. This works as a lesson in being an artist over everything else,

Jodie Comer (‘Killing Eve’): ‘She can be awful… but I’m always rooting’ for my villain [Exclusive Video  Interview]
“She can be awful, but then as an actress to play her, it was just so much fun, so I do find myself excusing her a lot,” reveals Jodie Comer in an interview with Gold Derby (watch the exclusive video above) about her lead role as the assassin Oksana “Villanelle” Astankova in the new BBC America spy thriller “Killing Eve.” “I’m always rooting for her,” Comer explains. “It was just impossible not to be because it was so much fun playing her.”

The fun started for Comer when she read Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s pilot script. Comer recalls, “It was so refreshing — and I laughed. It’s not often — sometimes, you read the script and may laugh on the inside, but I loved it. It was really funny, but then also really dark in the right places.”

'Killing Eve': How Jodie Comer Turned a Pink-Dressed Psychopath Into a Breakout Role
The "strong female character" – that dour lady kick-ass of pasty writer-nerds' dreams – may have finally met her maker at the hands of Villanelle, the adorably bonkers assassin of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's addictive BBC America series Killing Eve. As played by 25-year-old English actress Jodie Comer, Villanelle is a fresh, new face on the fictional psychopath scene – a cheeky, blithely amoral girl's girl with a penchant for nice clothes, a deep love of her craft (i.e. brutally murdering people against a variety of European backdrops in highly creative ways) and

Chaz Ebert on 20th Anniversary of Ebertfest, Where Roger Was Like Beyonce (Guest Column)

  • Variety
When Roger was asked to start a film festival by Kim Rotzoll, the dean of the College of Communications at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, we had no idea it would exist 20 years later. The idea was to do a one-time festival as a follow up to the successful Cyberfest, the birthday party for Hal 9000, the computer in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” who says in the movie that he was born in Urbana, Illinois. Roger had something in common with Hal 9000, he too was born in Urbana. And so Roger agreed to undertake the task. Besides, Roger was a proponent of the civilizing effect that watching movies communally could have. He said that movies are a giant machine that generates empathy, letting us know about the different hopes, aspirations, dreams, and fears of others and helps us to identify with the people who are sharing this journey with us.

Evan Rachel Wood: ‘Westworld’ Fans Hoping For Season 2 Queer Storyline Won’t Be Disappointed

Evan Rachel Wood: ‘Westworld’ Fans Hoping For Season 2 Queer Storyline Won’t Be Disappointed
Few actors have weathered childhood fame as gracefully as Evan Rachel Wood. From an early lead role on ABC’s “Once and Again” to a star-making turn in Catherine Hardwicke’s “Thirteen,” Wood came of age in the public eye and lived to tell the tale. Unlike many who peak young, she sustained a career spanning critical hits like “Across the Universe” and “The Wrestler” to prestige television such as “True Blood,” “Doll & Em,” and now, “Westworld.” Wood hasn’t come out entirely unscathed; in 2016 she revealed that she had been sexually assaulted multiple times in her life. In February, she testified in Congress about surviving sexual abuse.

“I never did what I did to be famous, and it’s something that can cause great anxiety in me,” Wood said in a phone interview last month. “But, I had to use it for a purpose. Otherwise, it was going to be too much.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge Twists the Spy Genre With BBC America’s Thriller ‘Killing Eve’
Eve Polastri may be brilliant, but 007 she is not.

“She’s not trained to within an inch of her life — she can’t do a backflip, pull out a gun and shoot three people with one bullet,” says Phoebe Waller-Bridge about the central character in her new BBC America thriller “Killing Eve,” which bows April 8.

“She’s a woman who is out there protecting people and hunting somebody, but when there’s a bang in her house, she runs upstairs and hides. There is something much more human and relatable about that.”

But what truly sets “Killing Eve” apart from the rest of the well-worn spy genre is that the cat and mouse at the center of the story are both women.

“Grey’s Anatomy” star Sandra Oh portrays Eve, an M15 operative and assassin obsessive who is bored with the mundane reality of her day-to-day existence. But her humdrum
