Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Review

"There is no character development, a lot of fights between humans (when we want to watch dinos), stupid decisions. The movie is barely entertaining!" - Pedro

"On the contrary, I thought this is the 2nd best in the franchise, and the only one, original aside, that truly explores sci-fi themes with interest and depth." -Jesus

Beauty Break: To Chris Evans on his 37th Birthday

by Nathaniel R

A very happy 37th birthday today to one of Hollywood's true good guys, Chris Evans. In addition to making the perfect superhero onscreen, he's a progressive feminist and all around role model offscreen. His only sin that we can recall is that one time he threatened to retire from acting when his run as Captain America ends (in 2019 *gulp*). But his recent stint on Broadway in Lobby Hero suggests to us that he might not give up on that particular craft so quickly. 

He's wonderful and also, obviously, an all-time looker. Much balm for sore eyes after the jump...

Netflix in June: Blue Jasmine Ragnarok, and Baby Sebastian Stan!

Time to play Streaming Roulette. Each month, to survey new streaming titles on Netflix and other services, we freeze frame the films at random places with the scroll bar and whatever comes up first, that's what we share -- no cheating!  Which of these films will you be streaming this month for the first time or as a rewatch? Which would you like to see covered at TFE? Please do tell us in the comments. 

Ready? Let's go...

-OPEN THE DOOR, BITCH!

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist (2008)
Oh I hearted this movie at the time. I fell so hard for Ari Graynor and I'm always pissed her career didn't truly explode. She shoulda been a leading lady in major comedies immediately. She's still around of course but where is the big career this hilarious turn foretold? (Pssst. She's not Nick or Norah but she's what I remember about the movie. Is she Infinite?)   

His mother was kind enough to send this back to us.

The Covenant (2006)
Howcuuuuuuute it's baby Sebastian Stan! I had completely forgotten this movie existed...

Blueprints: "Iron Man"

To celebrate a decade of Marvel movies, Jorge goes back to the movie that started it all...

On May 2nd, the original Iron Man celebrated the 10th anniversary of its release. The film as the first official movie of Marvel Studios and the one that kick started and eventually allowed the completely transformed film landscape of today. It is now ten years, eighteen films, and a multibillion-dollar acquisition later.

So to celebrate (or condemn; whatever side of the argument you land in), let’s go back to the screenplay for the movie, and examine how scripts describe and develop action scenes; sequences that mostly rely on visual cues rather than description or dialogue...

MTV Movie & TV Award Nominees

by Nathaniel R

We lost interest in the MTV Movie Awards during the looooong stretch of them turning into the (which year is this?) blur of franchise awards with Harry's Twilight Hunger Games. But let's check back in since nominees were announced a few days ago and voting is now open.

And Oops! spoke to soon in the previous post on the GLAAD Awards. The GLAAD honor wasn't the last hurrah for Call Me By Your Name. Timothée Chalamet, the internet's current boyfriend, is up for an MTV Movie Award for his performance. That he's up against Rey in Star Wars and T'Challa in Black Panther indicates that he'll lose given that the public votes on these awards and that movie earned basically a ha'penny when compared to its competition. But hey, we're part of the public. We can vote now! Because the MTV Awards have a school year schedule, Avengers Infinity War (April 2018) is competing with Wonder Woman (June 2017) for best movie though we all know Black Panther will win. More after the jump...

Tweets in the Hand

A+ shade here for the ever problematic Roseanne, who was recently mouthing off about the White House Press Correspondence Dinner...

And another tweet that is so true that I'm shook to my soft flabby core.

 

 

Ha ha. After the jump...
