Stinging in the New: 10 Lousy Movies Not to Watch in 2015 – CURNBLOG
Simon Butler / January 4, 2015
Come 2015, humanity will be deluged with a slew of new movies, both studio and independent. There are some I’m looking forward to.
And then there are others that I wouldn’t see if even I were threatened with being thrown into a vat of rancid, boiling butter by the vindictive ghost of Attila the Hun.
Judging movies without seeing them is risky. God knows I’ve done it many a time, but like an addiction, I can’t stop doing it. No need, then, to resolve not to for the New Year; in fact, I’m going to continue in that vein with this post, which offers a list of the pictures I expect to be just plain awful, judging by their trailers, advertising or any other content available. These films, I predict, will be bad enough to warrant creation of a new kind of vomitorium geared…

Review: ‘Everly’ Might Look Like ‘Jane Wick,’ But She’s A Completely Different Killer
Oscars 2015 — Original Score
When listening to the score music, it’s important to remember the context of the scenes the music would have been used in.
It’s unfortunate that Birdman was deemed ineligible for this category as the drum work was a memorable, dominating part of that film. However, Johannsson won the Globe for Theory of Everything and looks to have the best change to gain a second victory here. I would prefer Grand Budapest Hotel or Imitation Game to receive the win (both Desplat).
- The Theory of Everything (Jóhann Jóhannsson, first nomination)
- The Grand Budapest Hotel (Alexandre Desplat, 7/8 nominations)
- The Imitation Game (Alexandre Desplat, 7/8 nominations)
- Interstellar (Hans Zimmer, 1 win, 10 nominations)
- Mr. Turner (Gary Yershon, first nomination)
Django Unchained (2012) Review
You’re a slave who’s been given an opportunity to kill white men with bounties on their heads…How do you say no????
Django (Jamie Foxx) is approached by Dr. King Shultz (Christoph Waltz), who purchases him after an unfortunate encounter with the slave owners who have Django. Now in the hands of the traveling “dentist”, Django is given the opportunity of a lifetime to help the doctor, or better called bounty hunter, identify three outlaws with bounties on them. The doctor doesn’t know what they look like, but Django does, and for his assistance he is offered his freedom. After claiming the bounties in an unanticipated fashion, the doctor gives Django his freedom and offers him the chance to work with him as a bounty hunter, including splitting the collections earned. How could he say no? Together these two made an unlikely good team (much like that of sour cream and…

You always know that its awards season when a glut of biopics and fact based dramas hit our screens. This offering has a worthier pedigree than some however telling as it does the story of the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches famously led by, amongst others, Martin Luther King Jr. (played here by Oyelow). This was a huge moment in the American Civil Rights Movement and as such has been well documented and actual real footage of the March is used near the end of the film and juxtaposed with the recreation. At the heart of this story though is…

Disney to Announce ‘Star Wars’ Theme Park
After acquiring the rights to ‘Star Wars’, Disney has made it no secret that they will be integrating the franchise into their theme parks. Disney CEO Bob Iger has often been quoted saying that the new films will be featured heavily at the parks. Now Iger has spoken with Wall Street analysts about future plans, saying that an announcement will be made in 2015.
“Fairly soon, I’m sure we’ll be ready to go public with some specifics. But it’s safe to say that you’ll see a lot more Star Wars at Disney and at Disney parks in the near future.”
The CEO has called the park “ambitious” and that it will most likely be featured in several parks across the world. This report comes not long after those claiming that Disney scrapped original plans for a ‘Star Wars’ themed park after the new Harry Potter expansion at Universal proved to…

Third clip from “Fifty Shades of Grey” has been released
This is the third day in a row that the Today Show has released a new clip from the upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Grey. In the first clip, Christian gets some supplies from the hardware store and the second clip has Ana and Christian getting to know one another.
In today’s clip, Ana asks why Christian why he’s at her hotel and he tells her that he felt bad for leading her on. He says that he ‘doesn’t do romance’ before Ana asks him to ‘enlighten’ her to his ‘singular’ thoughts. We have seen most of this clip in the trailers, but it’s nice to see it not broken up into pieces.
You can view it by going here.
With the three clips, there are some people already talking about how the stars don’t have any chemistry on the screen. Maybe it does come off ‘awkward’…
