Huffington Post - about 1 year
As we go forward, movies guide us. They give us directions. They motivate us. They provide rest stops, comic relief and flashbacks to the past. And they reassure us that we will thrive. It's a perfect time to reflect on the most inspiring films, performances and artistic achievements of this last year. Check out the best in film in 2016.

Amy Adams in Arrival: Master of Tongues
Huffington Post - over 1 year
In the movie Arrival, Amy Adams plays Louise, a linguist dealing with some creatures from outer space in Denis Villaneuve's parable bringing into our world beings from the beyond. They appear to be giant floaty plasma mushrooms and arrive in an ovoid structure with one part flat. An academic with some sorrow in her past, Louise is enlisted to communicate. Amidst a world of aggressive action against the unknown, the message in how she figures out their language is to behave with gentle caution, with heart open, and optimistic courage. In a movie that values the pleasures of compassion, Amy Adams is not your usual action hero. At a special screening at the Crosby Hotel in early fall, when the stars Adams and Jeremy Renner just returned from Toronto where the movie was a big hit, they talked to guests about the filmmaking. Denis Villaneuve was not present, off shooting a sequel to Bladerunner, but this Canadian director, distinguished for Prisoners, and last year's Sicario was present ...

We Need More Sci-Fi Movies That Celebrate Otherness
Huffington Post - over 1 year
You can be highbrow. You can be lowbrow. But can you ever just be brow? Welcome to Middlebrow, a weekly examination of pop culture. Warning: this post contains “Arrival” spoilers. “We are the hero of our own story,” Mary McCarthy wrote in Characters in Fiction. In other words, in the stories we tell, whether fictional or pertaining to our own lives, our personal beliefs give our choices shape. It’s difficult to see outside of our paradigm, and to understand that the people we ideologically oppose may not be “evil,” but instead driven by a separate set of motivations. This sentiment has been borrowed by contemporary writers like Teju Cole, whose Open City follows a morally questionable narrator, and George R.R. Martin, whose books chronicle warring families who believe staunchly in the good of their own causes. Each author seems to be critiquing a hero-centric approach to storytelling ― stories with zippy plots that rest on the battle of good versus evil. A hero tra...

Here's Why The Flying Saucer Is Sideways In 'Arrival'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Today, on Tuesday, Nov. 8, after months of fighting, families being ripped apart and too many moments where it seemed as if our country would not make it through such a trying time, we finally have an answer to the question that has captivated us for so long: Why does the flying saucer appear sideways in the movie posters for “Arrival”? My colleague, Bill Bradley, saw a press screening for “Arrival” Monday night. This morning, I asked him to give me the answer Americans figured might never come. Here’s our conversation from Gchat: Me: how was arrival    Bill: pretty good some lines made me lol at the end, but it was pretty good   Me: why is the flying saucer sideways   Bill: it’s not a saucer dude it’s a shell!!!! what the shell!   Me: why is the shell sideways / look like a silver flying saucer   Bill: we think it s sideways but we know so little ...   Me: hmmm If you look at the poster, stars Amy Adams, Jeremy...

The Cast Of 'Ghostbusters' All Had Crazier Jobs Than Busting Ghosts
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Before they were famous, some of Hollywood's biggest stars were just regular people working at regular jobs. Jeremy Renner was a makeup artist, Harrison Ford was a hunky carpenter and Rachel McAdams worked at a McDonald's. Similarly, the cast of the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot started out doing whatever they could to make ends meet before making it big. During a Wednesday appearance on "Ellen," "Saturday Night Live" actress Leslie Jones revealed that she used to work as telemarketer for Scientology, shocking the rest of her fellow cast mates, who immediately burst out laughing. "Uh, yeah ... They kinda still don't know I'm not a Scientologist," Jones said, staring straight into the camera with a scared look. "Thanks for blowing my cover, Ellen."   When DeGeneres pushed Jones for more details about her former job, the comedian said, "I lived in Glendale, I needed to pay the rent and it was a very easy interview -- I just [acted] crazy."  Watch below to find out more ab...

Zaki's Review: <i>Captain America: Civil War</i>
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
A little over a month ago, Warner Bros.' execrable, excessive Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice arrived in theaters. As you know if you read my review, that film, with its storyline about the aftermath of a destructive superhero battle leading to a battle of wills between heroes, landed with a resounding thud for me. Perhaps my biggest complaint was how it was doing an end-run around its audience by forcing an emotional investment in its characters and their world that hadn't yet been earned. Well, here we are mere weeks later with Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, covering extremely similar thematic and narrative terrain while doing right exactly what the earlier film did so wrong. Believe it or not, it was eight years ago this week that the first Iron Man's huge critical and commercial success kicked off the massive multi-franchise edifice that we've come to know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, Marvel Studios has gone from success to success, launching several c...
