There was a famous New Yorker cartoon called The Critic, a stage-eye-view of the audience laughing their butts off at something, and a glowering man sitting front row centre.

It’s a vibe not confined to critics, but to all the participants of awards season – a.k.a. the season for serious movies. And while I applaud that, for a limited time only, we have something to watch besides superheroes, it’s too bad comedies aren’t taken more seriously.

Awards season is upon us, and the Peach State’s film critics have named their favorite movies and performances from 2016.

The Georgia Film Critics Association has handed out awards in categories much like the Oscars since it was founded in 2011 by CAmeron McAllister, marketing director for the Atlanta Film Society. The organization, which includes critics from various publications across the state, including Atlanta Business Chronicle contributor Eleanor Ringel Cater, was a big fan of nostalgic musical “La La Land” and “Moonlight,” which both won multiple awards.

It also gave “The Nice Guys,” which filmed in Georgia and stars Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, the Oglethorpe Award for Excellence in Georgia Cinema.

“It surprised me when I was tabulating the votes,” McAllister said. “I don’t think ‘The Nice Guys’ will see any Oscar love, but it’s a really good film with a smart screenplay.”

Next up with have the very talented Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe, who took on the role of Robin Hood in the 2010 Ridley Scott movie, which was simply titled Robin Hood. Unfortunately we did not really get into this version of Robin Hood quite as much as we did previous movies, although it was good to see that Russell was willing to have a go at a much more realistic Robin Hood accent, although many people felt he sounded ridiculous.

Tom Cruise headlines this fresh version. Algerian actress and hip-hop musician Sofia Boutella is featured as Princess Amunet and, of course, as The Mummy herself.

The Nice Guys

Shane Black’s buddy comedy was supposed to be the movie that saved studios from their worst instincts: a wholly original idea, with the backing of major stars (Ryan Gosling, Russell Crowe), a decent budget, and no franchise expectations. Instead, this delightfully coarse caper barely earned $36-million at the box office, and will likely be used as an example of what not to do.

That’s a shame, as Black crafted a sharp, immensely entertaining ode to old-school tough-guy shenanigans.

Filmmaker Josh Boone has revealed in a new interview with Creative Screenwriting that Russell Crowe is attached to star in Boone’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s 2014 novel Revival. Boone has written the script for the film and plans to make it his next directorial effort after the X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.

I’m guessing that Crowe will play Charles Jacobs, the charismatic minister whose experiments with electricity lead him down some obsessive and nightmarish paths following the death of his wife and baby in a horrible road accident. The tormented Jacobs is a great role for Crowe, and it will be interesting to see who is cast as Jamie, the local boy who first meets the preacher as a child and runs into him again years later when both are older and much more troubled.

If director Ridley Scott didn’t get his fill of lifetime achievement recognition during last year’s awards season, when his film “The Martian” was on a crash course with Oscar night, the American Cinematheque was ready and willing to oblige.

The org honored Scott with its 30th annual honor Friday night. Actor Russell Crowe served as host of the evening’s festivities.
