‘War Machine’ Review: Brad Pitt Plays a General, But the Narration Takes Charge

37 minutes ago

From the moment Brad Pitt appears on screen in “War Machine,” you can tell he’s throwing himself into playing another person, from how he walks and places his body’s center of gravity to changing his voice and altering his facial features. But it’s the “you can tell” part that sinks the performance: Pitt has excelled in a variety of roles, but one of the unifying factors behind his best work is that he makes it seem effortless. In “War Machine,” however, it’s all effort, and he makes it impossible to look at him without seeing how hard he’s working. »

47 minutes ago

Twin Peaks” returned to TV on Sunday, 26 years after David Lynch’s original, and the jury is still out. All in all, many critics are praising the different turn the show is taking, with new characters and a radical form of storytelling. Many are excited to see where the show will go after the two-hour premiere of the revival, which was a “strangely welcome return to a familiar world.” “And for a program that never fit in a neat little box, Lynch and company have seemingly found the right time and place to reappear,” wrote CNN’s Brian Lowry in his review. »

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Review: Johnny Depp Serves Up a Fifth of Frivolity

2 hours ago

It’s become difficult to listen to that hard-charging “Pirates of the Caribbean” theme without hearing Michael Bolton strain-crooning about Captain Jack Sparrow (“the jester of Tartuga!”) for the Lonely Island guys in that memorable “SNL” digital short. Then again, the “Pirates” franchise itself has always seemed like an unlikely mash-up of outlaw posture and pop silliness, eschewing any real sense of seagoing adventure for the more readily achievable goals of brand management and CGI swash and buckle. The good news, though, is that the fifth entry, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” is the most divertingly enjoyable. »

3 hours ago

(Major spoilers ahead for the first four episodes of the “Twin Peaks” revival on Showtime.) The first two episodes of “Twin Peaks: The Return” sets up a serious problem: how is Agent Dale Cooper supposed to get out of the Black Lodge if his doppelganger is running around? Fortunately, creators David Lynch and Mark Frost waste no time answering this question, but in typical fashion, it’s something that only raises more questions.

In the first episode, our favorite otherworldly giant (Carel Struycken) returned to present Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) with some knew cryptic sayings: “Remember. »

In the annals of 2017 Cannes Film Festival weirdness, “Jupiter’s Moon” gave us a Mexican immigrant who could fly after he was shot, “The Square” put Elisabeth Moss’ character in a perfectly normal roommate situation with a chimpanzee and “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” introduced Elle Fanning as an innocent alien falling in love with a punk-rock wannabe. And then, bright and early on Monday morning at the Grand Theatre Lumiere, along came Yorgos Lanthimos to say, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.” His film “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” started with a close-up of open heart surgery and. »

Watch Keith Urban Tell Nicole Kidman About the Time a Prosthetic Leg Was Thrown at Him (Video)

11 hours ago

Keith Urban fans, or Urban’s Army as they are called, are an excitable group who will go to extreme lengths to get an autograph. And when we say extreme, we mean extreme. Long before he met his wife, Nicole Kidman, Urban found himself in what he thought would be a fun moment between him and a female fan at one of his concerts. “Years ago, I was doing a concert in this big venue and somebody in the crowd yelled out, ‘Will you sign my leg?'” the country music superstar said on BBC America’s “The Graham Norton Show. »

‘Leftovers’ Star Amy Brenneman Dives Into Laurie’s Big Decision: ‘It’s a Real Sea Change’

12 hours ago

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Sunday’s sixth episode of “The Leftovers”). The characters of “The Leftovers” are always barreling toward some divine and usually-terrible truth — so when you couple that with the heavy task of delivering three final episodes, you get “certified.” It’s number six out of eight, and it’s a beautiful showcase for many of the show’s players — Carrie Coon, Christopher Eccleston, Kevin Carroll, Scott Glenn and, of course, protagonist Justin Theroux — but none more potent than Amy Brenneman. As therapist and former doomsday cult member Laurie Garvey, »

‘Twin Peaks’ Review: Give Yourself a Present

12 hours ago

To write a review of a mystery story without knowing how it ends is absurd. You can’t possibly know how skillfully the storytellers have laid out their clues until you know where they lead. With Showtime’s “Twin Peaks” revival, we don’t even know what (if any) mysteries David Lynch and Mark Frost, our maybe-messing-with-us storytellers, intend to solve. But I’ll dive in and say I love the revival anyway, the way I love pie. I don’t eat pie to solve it or because each bite brings me closer to a solution. (Unless the solution is death. »

Cannes So Far: Movies Take a Back Seat to Netflix and Security

15 hours ago

We’re now five days and 68 movies into the 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, and here are some of the big stories: Netflix. The streaming company landed two films in the official selection, which provoked the ire of French theater owners who don’t think the temple of cinema should give spots to films that are premiering on demand, not in theaters. A press release from the festival agreed… but the new rule doesn’t start until next year. The Netflix logo was booed before screenings. Jury president Pedro Almodovar seemed to indicate that he wouldn’t want to vote for. »
