Frank Capra once said “There are no rules in filmmaking. Only sins. And the cardinal sin is dullness.” One thing is for sure, filmgoers will not find anything dull about the newly revitalized Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway Film Center (SNF Parkway). Boasting a breathtaking 414-seat auditorium with state-of-the-art projection and sound, two smaller 85-seat theatres, as well as a ground-floor bar lounge, the SNF Parkway will permanently serve as the year-round headquarters for the Maryland Film Festival. The theatre will also provide educational opportunities for students and members of Johns Hopkins, MICA, and the community at large.
It’s the “tale as old as time” that Disney brought to the big screen in a wondrous animated version back in 1991, scoring the first ever Best Picture Oscar nomination for an animated film (and still the only one to this day). Then Disney saw more magic (and profit potential) in producing a live Broadway musical version in 1994 where it was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, winning for Best Costume Design. And now everything is coming full circle as Disney brings Beauty and the Beast back to the big screen as a live action musical (with heavy doses of computer-graphic animation).
Kong: Skull Island deserves the accolades
After the financial success of Godzilla, it seemed only natural that Legendary would seek to bring more classic giant monsters to the screen, either in their own movies or in a sequel. Well, that sequel got sidelined when director Gareth Edwards got sidetracked by another little project, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. While that sequel languished (it’s now looking at a 2019 release with Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, and Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown among the cast) – and teased the appearance of more classic kaiju – someone came up with the idea to bring the big ape Kong back to life.
There’s no question that 2016 will be long remembered as a year of immeasurable losses in the world of music. One of the most shocking was the passing of Leonard Cohen, who died following a fall at the age of 82, shortly after the release of You Want It Darker, his 14th studio album.
Every once in a while a movie comes along that is virtually unreviewable because of the intricacies of the plot, which would result in a massively spoiler-filled report. Get Out is one of those films, and that’s a good thing because you really shouldn’t know too much about it before seeing it. So we’ll just give you the basics of the plot.
