acclaimed movies

Dylan in 2016: Dylan O’Brien was injured on the 17th of March while filming ‘Maze Runner: The Death Cure’ in Vancouver, Canada. He was immediately transferred to a local hospital for observation and treatment. Despite being seriously injured and absent from the limelight for months, he has achieved many things in this year. He was nominated for awards and won them all, was cast as “Mitch Rapp” in the upcoming action movie ‘American Assassin’ and finished filming it, was featured in a critically acclaimed movie ‘Deepwater Horizon’ (The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled the shortlist for the visual effects race and DWH is part of the list and could possibly be an Oscar nominated film) and still managed to be a part of Teen Wolf’s final season. We’re thankful for Dylan being safe and healthy. 

marvel studios has nothing to fear. they have so much money and critical acclaim that they could put out a film of tony making jabs at dc comics for 2.5 hours and critics would lap it up and describe it as the greatest thing since man walked on the moon. they’re cocky enough that they can whitewash characters and nobody will say anything because critics ~trust in their vision~ and make up so many excuses for why their groundhog day phases are the best source adaptations we will ever see. they could put out films where the main cast is solely made up of women of colour and nobody would bat an eyelid because it’s marvel studios it’ll be a ~fun movie. but they don’t. they play it safe and push up the next spider-man sequel and shrug their shoulders when anybody dares to mention captain marvel. it kills me

While most writers want their books to sell millions of copies worldwide, and see it turned into a critically acclaimed movie with a perfectly selected cast and a perfectly selected soundtrack, I just want a Tumblr fandom. I mean, the other stuff would be amazing, but I could live without it as long as my book characters have a Tumblr fandom.

If anyone is interested in how 9/11 affected peaceful Arab-Americans and South Asian-Americans, especially those who were Muslim, you should all check out the critically acclaimed Hindi movie “My Name is Khan”. Try to get it with English subtitles. It’s incredibly powerful and the story is about a Muslim man with Asperger’s syndrome who moves to San Francisco.

Another powerful Bollywood story is the movie “New York”, it showcases the effect it had on innocent Muslim-Americans after the attacks.

'Captain America's' Sebastian Stan Joins Steven Soderbergh's 'Logan Lucky' (Exclusive)
Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Hilary Swank are among those starring in the all-star heist movie.

Sebastian Stan, best known for playing the Winter Soldier in Marvel’s Captain America movies, has joined the all-star cast of Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky.

Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Hilary Swank, Katherine Heigl, Adam Driver and Seth MacFarlane are among those on the call sheet of the NASCAR-set heist movie centered on two brothers.

The movie is currently shooting in Atlanta. Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are producing.

Stan will play a three-time Sprint Cup Champion NASCAR driver who is coming back into the sport after time away.

With the new casting, the actor continues to ride a wave of success generated by Captain America: Civil War, one of the year’s more acclaimed movies that has grossed more than $1.1 billion worldwide. Since that movie’s opening, Stan nabbed and wrapped a starring part in We Have Always Lived in the Castle, a thriller that also stars Taissa Farmiga and Alexandra Daddario.

The actor, who will appear in the indie I’m Not Here with Maika Monroe and J.K. Simmons, will shoot the next Avengers installment early next year.

Stan is repped by ICM Partners, Emily Gerson Saines of Brookside Artists Management and Lon Sorensen at Sloane, Offer.

Don't people realize that even critically acclaimed movies can be atrocious? (Ex Sausage Party)

Tuesday Tips - Stay Inspired, no matter what inspires you.
More of a general tip this week. Any reason to draw, paint, or create is a good one. For some artists, myself included, waiting for inspiration can mean “not creating art”. I’m always at my best when I just let any idea move freely, without judgement. If I wait too long to start on something, it just won’t happen. The simple act of putting something down on paper, no matter what, always triggers the good part of your brain that doesn’t over-analyzes and judges your tastes. I sometimes feel conflicted about sharing certain things I enjoy that are not “high-art” or acclaimed movies. What I’m trying to say is, don’t be shy about what you like drawing or creating. Just do it. People will be attracted to your passion for it because it will show through your work. In this instance, I’ve been patiently awaiting the release of the video game “Witcher 3″. Mind you, I’ve never played the first 2, but I feel compelled to get this one. So, feeling inspired, I just started to sketch some stuff based on the trailer and gameplay videos that were released. So, whatever rocks your boat, use it to push yourself forward artistically. No matter what happens, you’ll be having fun doing it, and that fun will shine through and connect with others. Who else will be playing this game when it comes out? I am.

Miranda July b. February 15, 1974

American director Miranda July is also a writer and actress who stars in her own films. After working as a performance artist and making her own short films, July broke out with her critically acclaimed movie Me and You and Everyone We Know (2005). The film won the Camera d’or at the Cannes Film Festival, an award given to a first time feature film maker who manages to impress with their debut film. 

Selma’s chances may have been hurt by the success of Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave last year.

I am fucking disgusted. Two ENTIRELY different movies, set in different time periods, different casts and directors, different stories…but the committee is apparently looking at it through some sort of narrow racial lense? Like, they gave due recognition and acclaim to a movie centered around African Americans last year, so they can’t do so the following year? I can’t…I can’t even articulate how terrible this attitude is. added to this is the fact that all 20 acting nominations have ALL gone to whites, not to mention that these awards come at a time when there is a great deal of racial tension and unrest in the US. Hollywood’s racism is beyond unbelievable. 

  • 6 year old girl: i'm excited for frozen 2! :)
  • bitter, jaded teenager/20-something: FROZEN IS DISGUSTING TRASH AND IF YOU LIKE IT THEN YOU ARE DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR EVERY BAD THING THAT HAPPENS IN THE WORLD AND FROZEN 2 IS LITERALLY THE WORST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF DOCUMENTED HUMAN CIVILIZATION I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS CRITICALLY AND FINANCIALLY ACCLAIMED MOVIE WHICH IS OBJECTIVELY TERRIBLE BECAUSE I SAY SO IS GETTING A SEQUEL
This Guy Wants You to Boycott 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Because He Doesn't Like Feminism

This weekend, millions of people will flock to movie theaters to see Mad Max: Fury Road. The film is a rarity in the landscape of Hollywood reboots, as it’s directed, produced, and co-written by original Mad Max director George Miller, ensuring that it maintains the spirit of its source material. And critics seem to love it too. With a 99 percent “fresh” rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, it’s shaping shaping up to be one of the most acclaimed big-budget action movies since Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

But there’s one thing about Fury Road that has rankled some men across the web—the film features an empowered female character named Imperator Furiosa, who is played by Charlize Theron. As VICE’s own critic David Perry put it, to the dismay of MRAs everywhere, “Fury Road is an explicitly feminist movie, with Furiosa and Max joining forces to take down a literal patriarchy.”

people talking like Don Cheadle wouldn’t be at all relevant if not for his minor role in Marvel movies.  and that he like… owes them something beyond his acting work

he was a successful actor before marvel.  guy is currently a lead in a successful show. and just released a critically acclaimed movie that he worked his ass off to accomplish and is busting his butt to promote.  he’s got better shit to do then do marvel interviews every day for people who know shit all about his character and don’t care to learn shit all about his character
