Posterized: Brie Larson

By Nathaniel R

Last week thedirectors ofCaptain Marvelwere announced,moving that imaginary Marvel Studios picture,starring Brie Larson,closer to reality.2019 is still a long way off though we have plenty of Brie to tide us over until then.She's in movie theaters currently as part of Ben Wheatley's crime comedy ensemble pictureFree Fire(reviewed).It's one of two features this spring whichhas featured Brie Larson as the token female amongst a group of adult men fighting for their lives (the other beingKong Skull Island).Which is,if you consider her particular skills as an actress,kind of a waste;to date she's consistently done her most transcendent work opposite other women or child actors.

Though it feels as if Brie Larson only recently exploded into fame having won the Best Actress Oscar forRoom(2015),in reality she has been paying her dues for ages,winning her first TV gig at just 9 years of age (a comedy skit on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno) and her first movie gig by 10 (something calledSpecial Deliveryin which she played "Little Angel").She's done a little of everything including an attempted pop career - which goes down really well in a meta sort of way via the satiric prism of her role inScott Pilgrim vs.The Worldand her role-playingwithin "United States of Tara"-- 'Princess Valhalla Hawkwind,' anyone?.

So let's look back on her movie history viaPOSTERIZED(returning for another season!).We've thrown in all her movies that we could find posters to (a couple others don't seem to have been released) and her three largest TV roles.How many of these 27 Brie Larson projects have you seen?

Review: "Free Fire"

byChris Feil

At first look,Ben Wheatley'sFree Fireseems like another Tarantino retread,all snarky hyper-violence with a wink that we've seen dozens of times - and to some degree it is.But the film isn't so much the macho wankfest it will be shrugged off as,nor the cornucopia of gun adoration that the marketing promises.WhereFree Firedelights,even charms,is by finding its thrills in the shady repartee and double crosses between criminals rather than the bloodshed.


Guns do play the central role in the film's "deal gone wrong",but they aren't responsible for what makes things go south...

What next for our Oscar winners?

From Anne Hathaway inBride Wars,Charlize Theron inAeon Flux,Jamie Foxx inStealth,to Eddie Redmayne inJupiter Ascending,Oscar winners always ride the momentum of their award glory to the next prestige film.

So what's next for our Oscar winners?

Leo finally won so he can crawl back into the bear (supermodel) cave (mansion) and never work again right?Unlikely,although he has absolutely nothing on his slate at the moment except for staring at his Oscar muttering "the way of the future...the way of the future....".I would genuinely love to see Leo in a movie where he plays a unlucky in love animal services employee who keeps stealing Kathryn Heigl's dog so he can give it back to her and appear the hero,that gets 36% on Rotten Tomatoes.Lighten UP Leo!There are rumours of another Scorcese collaboration about a serial killer.Just the light material we're looking for.

Brie,Alicia,and Markafter the jump...
