On this day in showbiz history...

Still undersung: the great Glynis Johns in "The Ref"

1902Ray A Kroc,who popularized the McDonald's empire is born.The Founderwhich is about his business shenanigans/success opens this December (it was already supposed to have opened but we can't have movies for adults in the summer for some reason).
1908Joshua Logan is born.He later makes famous movies likeBus Stop,Picnic,CamelotandSouth Pacific.
1923Happy 93rd birthday to Glynis Johns,one of the greats!Her classics include:Mary Poppins,While You Were Sleeping,The Court Jester,The Ref,andMiranda.Why she doesn't have an Honorary Oscar is simply beyond our understanding.She was nominated only once for fine supporting work inThe Sundowners

Review: Exodus: Gods and Kings

Michael C hereto look at an embattled new wide release.

Ridley Scott'sExodus: Gods and Kingsis so dead in the water,so consistently baffling in its choices,that it is difficult to know where to begin.How about the simple fact that when one is adapting the Old Testament there is no getting around God?

Gods and Kingsdoesn't go so far as to omit God altogether.The Lord is present (sort of) in the form of a petulant eight-year old child who first appears from behind the burning bush to issue vague marching orders to Moses.What Scott and his quartet of screenwriters do attempt is an end-run around the almighty in the form of an ill-considered attempt to wedge the Book of Exodus into theBatman Beginsmold where all the miraculous events are brought down to Earth with realistic explanations,or at least semi-plausible interpretations.

Is God really talking to Moses or is Moses talking to himself because his exile knocked a screw loose?Does God intervene at the Red Sea or did the Jews get lucky with a fortuitous low tide?[more...]

My Favorite Moment in the "Exodus" Teaser

New Policy.Though The Film Experience invariably prefers teasers to full trailers on account of our spoiler aversion our亚博主页Yes No Maybe Sois one of our most popular features.So herewith we shall always do Yes No Maybe Sos on only the teaser for films we very much want to see and don't want spoiled and we'll just skip the trailers altogether (I am so grateful I did with Snowpiercer).Other films,we'll wait on the full trailer to do our full duty...especiallythose movies that were spoiled centuries ago likeExodus: Gods and Kings.

FYI for those of you who haven't read it,the Bible isfullof spoilers.It's practically a reality TV show it's so fond of telling you what's coming up next and then what just happened recapping.[More...]
