les-mis-cosette

EW critics Lisa Schwarzbaum and Owen Gleiberman were not impressed with Les Miserables.

“There’s a song in Les Mis called ‘Do You Hear the People Sing’?’ Lisa says. “I think in Les Mis … it’s, “Can you hear the wallets ka-ching?” Because this is a year-end movie that is made to blow your socks off.”

“Can you tell from this set up, it did not do it for me?” Lisa adds. “It’s demanding to be big, and it’s not.”

“I had mixed feelings about Les Mis, as well,” Owen says. “It peaks a little bit early.”

Movie Talk with Owen & Lisa: Final 'Breaking Dawn' 'feels like it might as well be the 15th 'Twilight' movie'

Entertainment Weekly critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum discuss The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, heading into its second week of likely box office dominance.

“This movie feels like it might as well be the fifteenth Twilight movie,” Owen says. “What I do think works is that they tap into a certain teen-pop, schlock, other worldly, sexually incorrect, neo-Victorian rapture that I think is very appealing.”

“The thing that I liked about this concluding episode, besides the fact that it is the concluding episode, is that apparently, vampiredom has finally made [Bella] dress better,” Lisa says. Watch their whole discussion below!

Movie Talk with Owen & Lisa: 'Skyfall' is 'the darkest James Bond movie'

Entertainment Weekly critics Lisa Schwarzbaum and Owen Gleiberman are at odds over the latest Bond installment — Skyfall. “This is about the darkest James Bond film that I have ever seen. And for also, for me, one of the best,” Schwarzbaum says. But Gleiberman doesn’t feel the same. “I thought the whole ‘Is James Bond too old and out of date thing?’ in this movie, seemed like something they brought out of moth balls from other movies.” Watch their full discussion below!

Movie Talk with Owen & Lisa: 'Cloud Atlas' 'wants to be a mind-bender'

Entertainment Weekly critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum discuss Cloud Atlas in the latest installment of “Movie Talk with Owen & Lisa.” “This movie very much wants to be a mind-bender, a head-trip, all that kind of stuff,” says Gleiberman. “I think its secret is that it’s really a gonzo mini-series. It’s very accessible, it is not profound. But I do think that it is imaginative, I think it’s surprising. And I got caught up in it.”

“We saw, as they say, a different movie,” Schwarzbaum counters. Watch the full chat below!

EW movie critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum are back for the latest installment of “Movie Talk with Owen and Lisa.” This time, they are discussing Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film — The Master.

Movie Talk with Owen and Lisa: If 'The Expendables 2' were better, 'It wouldn't be as good'

The Expendables 2 isn’t exactly the sort of movie that gets critics rallying to its defense. It’s neo-’80s schlock featuring a team of action stars who, at this point, can barely even move. Yet the film has a couple of defenders this week: Lisa and I both enjoyed the honest cheesiness with which it returns you to the era before action films — even bad ones — came layered with a certain post-9/11 gravitas. The Expendables 2 may be trash, but it has the courage of its own irresponsibility, along with a cast we still like a lot (in part because they are so old). You can see us chat about it below in the latest installment of “Movie Talk with Owen and Lisa.”

Movie Talk With Owen & Lisa: 'The Bourne Legacy' is 'the last big movie of the summer'

In the latest edition of “Movie Talk With Owen & Lisa,” Entertainment Weekly critics Owen Gleiberman and Lisa Schwarzbaum take on a Matt Damon-less Bourne film, The Bourne Legacy, “which is the last big movie of the summer that people are looking forward to,” Schwarzbaum says.

“I’ve always been a Jeremy Renner kind of girl and I think he absolutely nails it,” Schwarzabaum adds of Damon’s replacement.

“What I love about the Bourne movies is that they seem to be about something,” Gleiberman says. “But they’re really about nothing. This movie is just a game and yet it plugs you into the moment and Tony Gilroy gives you a feeling of urgency that I think Hitchcock would have loved.” Watch their full discussion below!
