‘Bombshell’ Review: A Cure for What Ailes Us

‘Bombshell’ Review: A Cure for What Ailes Us
Charlize Theron comes out blazing in Bombshell. But the first thing you notice about her deep-dive performance as former Fox News host Megyn Kelly is that you don’t see Theron at all. Through voice, posture, wardrobe, and the genius prosthetic makeup of Kazu Hiro, Theron is Kelly. It’s a marvel of transformation. And it would be little more than a dazzling distraction if Theron didn’t also bring complexity to this conservative-media star who found the guts to call out her boss, Fox News CEO Roger Ailes (a

Navarre Film Commission Celebrates First Decade at San Sebastian
San Sebastian — Since the 1950s, Spain has been a favorite European shooting locale. One of the biggest reasons remains its easily accessible, unique and diverse locations.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary this past June, the Navarre Film Commission kicked off a traveling exhibition which has been touring Spain over the summer and will present in San Sebastian during this year’s festival.

A tribute to the diversity of locations that exist in Navarra – including castles, deserts, mountains and lush temperate forests – the exhibition shines a spotlight on 18 such locations used by international and domestic film and TV shoots over the past few decades, as well as the productions themselves.

With medieval castles and fortifications a-plenty, Navarre has long been a favorite for historical and fantasy shoots. The most recently recognizable and widely seen, the Bardenas canyon badlands, played host to the Dothraki hordes and their Khalisi in “Game of Thrones.” Artajona

At 2019 Americana Honors and Awards, the Genre Looks to a More Diverse Future

At 2019 Americana Honors and Awards, the Genre Looks to a More Diverse Future
“We gotta change around here,” Mavis Staples sang toward the very end of Wednesday night’s 18th annual Americana Honors & Awards Ceremony at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. Having been presented the evening’s Inspiration Award by pioneering Civil Rights activist and Freedom Rider Ernest Patton earlier in the evening, Staples’ song was a powerful reminder that change-inspiring music-makers are, like Staples put it herself during her acceptance speech, “still carrying on.”

But during a show that at once gestured at the future of the Americana genre while still firmly upholding its rigid past,

‘The Public’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Emilio Estevez, Alec Baldwin, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Michael Kenneth Williams, Christian Slater | Written and Directed by Emilio Estevez

Emilio Estevez returns to cinema screens behind the camera with The Public after an eight-year absence following The Way in 2010. Estevez returns with another political venture surrounding a peaceful demonstration during the polar vortex at a public library in Cincinnati. It is comprised of an all-star cast including the likes of Alec Baldwin, Jeffrey Wright, Jena Malone, Taylor Schilling, Michael Kenneth Williams, Christian Slater and even Estevez himself as the leading character.

The Public is a terrific cinematic effort from Estevez. Diving deep into a social, political matter that is causing chaos and death all around the Us with little interest from the political world that is ultimately causing it. Estevez’ latest venture is a poignant and compelling premise that examines said social issue with tenderness and heart.

Conecta Fiction: Spain’s Navarre Primes Film-tv Gameplan

Conecta Fiction: Spain’s Navarre Primes Film-tv Gameplan
Madrid — Navarre has been a long-term film and TV shooting locale thanks to diverse and sometimes stunning landscapes that take in the Bardenas Reales badlands, immortalized in titles such as “The World Is Not Enough” and “Game of Thrones.”

One of Spain’s richest regions, Navarre has historically levied its own tax regime, which led in 2015 to its launching a highly competitive 35% tax credit for shoots which spend at least 40% of their budgets in the territory.

Once the incentive became part of Navarre’s film-tv mix, it started to generate larger economic activity around the audiovisual industry, and see high-profile national companies such as Tornasol Films and Nostromo Pictures choose Navarre as a preferential locale.

Gerardo Herrero’s Tornasol, for example, shot Terry Gilliam’s Cannes Festival closer “The Man Who Shot Don Quixote” in the towns of Galipienzo, San Martín de Unx and Lerga; Nostromo filmed feature adaptations of

Hear Mike and the Moonpies’ Nostalgic Cover of Fastball’s Nineties Hit ‘The Way’

Hear Mike and the Moonpies’ Nostalgic Cover of Fastball’s Nineties Hit ‘The Way’
Alt-rock and country music may seem like strange bedfellows, but in the hands of Mike and the Moonpies they go together like chili and cornbread. In honor of the 45th anniversary of the Hole in the Wall, the Austin bar in which they got their start, the Texas-based road warriors recorded a breezy version of the 1998 hit “The Way” by Fastball, the alt-rock trio who also launched a career out of the long-running dive bar located near the University of Texas.

‘The Public’ Movie Review: Life, Liberty and the Library as a Battlefield

‘The Public’ Movie Review: Life, Liberty and the Library as a Battlefield
As civil liberties get increasingly squeezed in the Trump era, The Public takes on a compelling sense of urgency. On the surface, the movie is a shallow but vigorously paced entertainment from writer-director-producer-star Emilio Estevez about a group of homeless people who refuse to leave a Cincinnati Public Library after closing hours because, well, it’s freezing outside, the shelters are full up and they might die. Fired up by the media, who invent a hostage situation (fake news!) for ratings, the cops send in a team of law-and-order headbusters

How to run a tiny box office market like Malta

Charles Pace has worked at Fda-owned Krs Releasing for 65 years.

It is a tiny outpost of UK film distribution but one that generates over €5 million in box office revenue and around 800,000 admissions annually. Its most popular film is James Cameron’s Titanic, which grossed just under €1 million in 1997, closely followed by Bohemian Rhapsody last year.

Welcome to Malta. The island country was part of the British Empire for over 150 years and its film culture still has a distinctly UK flavour. With a population of 432,000, the frequency of cinema visits per head was 1.84 in 2018. Total box office reached £4.7m in

Emilio Estevez Left Studio Films for Indies: ‘My Accountant Curses that Choice — Still’
Emilio Estevez puts his money where his mouth is: More than two decades ago, after headlining some of the most era-defining youth-culture hits of the 1980s — “The Outsiders,” “The Breakfast Club,” “St. Elmo’s Fire” — he left the studios behind and rebranded himself an independent filmmaker.

“My accountant curses that choice — still,” Estevez said. “Like, ‘How we gonna? … You’re 20 years in arrears.’ He doesn’t really sound like that, but it sounds like that to me. I finally just said, ‘I’m not gonna participate in the types of films other people want me to make. I’m gonna make films that matter to me.’” Estevez even went so far as to self-distribute his last movie, “The Way,” starring his father Martin Sheen as a man who walks Spain’s famed pilgrim’s trail, the Camino de Santiago.

Nor is his latest movie, “The Public,” opening April 5 in a

‘The Public’ Review: Emilio Estevez Taps into a Timely Anger

It’s the same tragic story. Another unarmed Black man is killed by the police. Another White man takes an arsenal into a school, campus, or place of worship before opening fire on unarmed innocents. The media takes these headlines, packages them together with thoughts and prayers, and uses the ratings to continue peddling their editorializing as news until another such event inevitably occurs yet again. And what do we have to show for it all? Besides a growing anger at the political injustices and vile rhetoric of those with power causing some push back for the media to ultimately dismiss, the answer is complacency. In a world turned flat by the internet, tragedies become commonplace enough to forget. Death becomes the norm and life the surprise.

Emilio Estevez taps into that anger with his latest ensemble drama The Public. He’s taken the structure of Bobby with overlapping narratives

Emilio Estevez’s “The Public” Is The Best Film Of 2019 So Far

What’s better than when an under the radar title absolutely blows you away? Unexpected cinematic joys are really the best kind to me. In the case of The Public, I’d been interested in it, due to enjoying actor and filmmaker Emilio Estevez’s last two outings, Bobby and The Way. However, I was not prepared for how hard this was going to hit me. It’s a riveting tale with terrific acting, directing, and writing. You’ll actually laugh and cry, which is hard to pull off. The Public, hitting theaters this week, is something special, ladies and gentlemen. This is the best film of the year so far. Sentimental but never over the top, it’s truly a treat. The film is a drama about what happens on a bitter cold day in downtown Cincinnati. The Public Library is a hub for the homeless, a place where

Ariana Grande Remembers Mac Miller on 6th Anniversary of "The Way" Collaboration

Ariana Grande Remembers Mac Miller on 6th Anniversary of
Ariana Grande is thinking about Mac Miller a bit extra today. Grande released her song "The Way" on March 25, 2013, which happened to be the first time the two of them had collaborated on a song together. The track was an instant hit and spent many weeks on Billboard's Hot 100, a list that the singer would come to know quite well in the years to come. The 25-year-old singer honored Miller on Instagram both in a note and in photos. One part of her Instagram Story just said "six years" with a heart emoji at the bottom. It was written in white text over a black background. Grande also shared photos with the rapper's dog, Myron, who appears to be living with her. She...

‘The Public’ Trailer: Alec Baldwin, Christian Slater & Taylor Schilling Star In Library Thriller

Emilio Estevez is back on the big screen for the first time since his 2010 film “The Way” hit theaters. This time, however, he’s back in the library (but it’s not for Saturday detention) in “The Public.” Shot at Cincinnati’s main library branch, “The Public” follows a group of homeless patrons during a wicked cold front who decide to stay at the library for shelter.

Trailer Drops For Emilio Estevez’s Next Directorial Outing “The Public”

Yesterday, a Trailer hit for a film I’d been curious about for a while. It’s called The Public, which marks the latest writing and directing project for Emilio Estevez. His previous outings have been some of the more underrated flicks of the past handful of years, so his was something I’d had my eye on. In fact, just this week I actually got to see it as well, scratching that particular itch. More on that another time, but this Trailer is one worth sharing. You’ll be able to see it at the bottom of this post, but first…some discussion is in order, of course. The movie is a drama centering on a standoff between the homeless and the police, within the walls of a library. The extensive plot description from IMDb is as follows: “In “the public” an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its

Ariana Grande Is Heading Back to Number One and She’s Bringing ‘NSync With Her
Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next album is all but guaranteed to debut at Number One. When it does, it will be another in a long string of commercial slam-dunks for Grande.

More surprising, the album’s success also represents a return to the charts for ‘NSync and Wendy Rene. That’s because “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored” interpolates a verse from ‘NSync’s jittery “It Makes Me Ill,” while “Fake Smile” borrows from Rene’s “After Laughter (Comes Tears),” a Sixties soul record that has been

Sam Rockwell, Octavia Spencer, and Allison Janney Join Cast of Action-Comedy The Heart

We have some fun casting news today for a new action-comedy film called The Heart. According to THR, Sam Rockwell and Octavia Spencer are set to star as Joe and Lucy, “a couple who, while desperate for cash, agree to take the job of delivering a human heart from New York to Florida in 24 hours. When they realize that their delivery is destined for a black-market buyer who illegally skipped the donor list, they try to reroute the heart to its rightful recipient, only to be hunted down by insane criminals.” Allison Janney will play Spencer’s ex-boss who is one of the criminals after the couple.

The Heart will be written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, who were the duo that debuted their writing and directing skills with the hit coming-of-age classic The Way, Way Back that also starred Rockwell and Janney.
