SORT BY Relevancy
We're reviewing "Divergent" this week directed by Neil Burger, starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet (who needed to make a car payment this month). Tune in to find out if this first movie in the series is epically lame or worth every penny of its $80 million budget.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
We're heading back to Divergent, because technical difficulties threw us a loop last week. We'll be reviewing that one, and sharing interview clips with the stars.
We'll also be reviewing The Grand Budapest Hotel, and we think you're going to like it.
DIVERgent committee members discuss the goals and importnce of inclusion within feminism and where women in the disability community fit in.
Mission statement: DIVERgent works to change how disabled women are commonly perceived within society while challenging the myths of our inferiority, both as women and as disabled people. We explore the interactions between sexism and ableism within both disabled and nondisabled communities. We seek to offer perspectives on gender and disability by emphasizing non-traditional femininity and non-traditional feminism.
In this episode Maria, Erin, and Micaela will be discussing the differences between the following books and movies: The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Divergent. We will share our opinions and talk about the rivarly between books and their coutnerpart movies. Which do you prefer?
On a very special episode of Cinema Royale, Jason Bateman calls in to talk about his raunchy, R-rated directorial debut, Bad Words.
Does Shailene Woodley and Divergent have what it takes to join The Hunger Games as the next great YA adaptation? We'll take a look at the futuristic action film and what it means for Woodley, Kate Winslet, and the rest of the phenomenal cast. Plus, we'll join Kermit, Miss Piggy, Tina Fey, and the rest of the gang for Muppets Most Wanted!
All this plus the latest news, DVD releases, and more!
On this week's ScreenPicks Movie Show, we review five new films. They include: Divergent, Muppets Most Wanted, Nymphomanic: Volume I, Rob the Mob, and Jodorowsky's Dune.
It's finally time for another Fireside Recs episode! Since casting for the Divergent movie is finally beginning to wrap up, we figured Veronica Roth's YA dystopian series would make a fitting choice for this week's discussion! We spend the first half of Episode 99 talking about Divergent: why some of us like it/why some of us don't, why it's so popular amongst fans of The Hunger Games, what we think about the casting choices for the film adaptation, etc. Ashley from Divergent Lexicon will be joining us for this discussion, and we're very excited to have her! The rest of the show focuses on the IMDb topic that we had to postpone a couple of weeks ago. Remember when we found Trexler Hoverhound and other similarly mysterious characters on the Hunger Games IMDb page? Now it's time to take a look at Catching Fire's IMDb entry! Who is "Gamekeeper Disciple"? What about "District 4 Family Member"? Does the presence of a "District 11 Rioter" mean we're going to see another D11 riot scene? While these roles are all clearly background/extra roles added to the page by the actors themselves, they may shed some light on what we can expect to see in November. (Thanks to Satsuma for this suggestion!)
