    My final dispatch from the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival catches some of the best films of this year’s fest, all from continents other than North America. A class system in Russia that is destroying people. The other side of “The French Connection.” A cleverly crafted tale of Korean fishermen forced into a nightmare at sea. A devastatingly real look at the economic inequality in France. And a film that’s as hard to describe as one of its creator’s previous masterpieces, “Songs From the Second Floor,” a work that Roger adored. These works have little in common except…

    Turner Sports commentator and former NBA star Charles Barkley on Sunday defended Adrian Peterson, the NFL star accused of going too far in a disciplinary beating he gave his 4-year-old son. Barkley made the comments in an interview with host Jim Rome on CBS's NFL pregame show. Peterson, one of the league's top running backs, has been suspended by the Minnesota Vikings while the case plays out in Montgomery, Texas, where he has been charged with injury to a child, a felony. Barkley said that community standards vary greatly when it comes to disciplining children, but Rome contended…

  • TIFF 2014 Interview: Al Pacino & David Gordon Green on "Manglehorn"

    Sam Fragoso
    14 Sep 2014 | 7:23 am
    A master of adaptability, Al Pacino seems to be bound by no character. In his latest film–David Gordon Green’s naturalistic fairy tale “Manglehorn”–Pacino plays a forlorn locksmith attempting to get over the love of his life. To break free of eternal stagnation and despondency, the eponymously titled character tries courting the bank teller he’s been interacting with for years. The film is a unique experience for all parties involved. Green has never created something this whimsical, and Pacino has never inhabited a person of this stature. A.J. Manglehorn is not menacing,…

    There were notable acting lions amongst the legions at the Toronto International Film Festival this year. Al Pacino prowled the comeback trail with “Manglehorn” and “The Humbling,” while Robert Duvall roared his way through the title role in “The Judge.”But the female legend in attendance most deserving of the mantle of lionness was Liv Ullmann. The 75-year-old muse of Swedish auteur Ingmar Bergman,  who graced 11 of his films including such classics as 1966’s “Persona” and 1972’s “Cries and Whispers,“ was in town to promote her first directing effort for the big…
  • TIFF 2014: Two Very Different Looks at Homelessness in “Shelter,” “Time Out of Mind”

    Brian Tallerico
    12 Sep 2014 | 8:11 pm
    The increasingly debilitating economic disparity in this country has clearly drawn the attention of our filmmakers. Ramin Bahrani’s “99 Homes” premiered on Monday night to praise for the way it uses the housing crisis to dramatic effect. Two films about homelessness—Oren Moverman’s “Time Out of Mind” and “Shelter,” the directorial debut of Paul Bettany—not only seek to capture the people at the bottom of the societal ladder but offer a great contrast in storytelling. Moverman’s film is completely free of melodrama, trying to convey a character study about a man who…

He told a producer: ‘If I were to play the role I’d give him some human characteristics, perseverance, frustration, those kind of things.’ This strategy was successful beyond anyone’s imagining. Like post-Civil War 19th century presidents, Bond villains are masks in a pageant with obscure…

    For Ashley Judd, it's been a tough couple of weekends at the box office. The actress starred with Harry Connick Jr. and Morgan Freeman in the family film “Dolphin Tale 2,” which was projected by analysts to win its opening weekend, but came in with a soft $16.5 million Sunday for Warner Bros. That comes one week after “The Identical,” a Christian-themed indie musical drama in which she starred with Blake Rayne and Ray Liotta, bombed with less than $1.5 million despite being in more than 1,900 theaters. Things didn't get any better this weekend, as “The…

The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) is wandering about the Tardis talking to himself about the possibility that none of us is ever truly alone, that the fear…

    Rocks in My Pockets is a rare commodity, a stellar example of something we rarely get to see: animation for adults. The film is a memoir, a family chronicle and a national history. Director Signe Baumane grew up in Soviet Latvia, one of an enormous brood of cousins whose grandparents lived through the tumultuous 1930s and 1940s, bracing for Communist and Fascist invasions and struggling to get by. More specifically, Rocks in My Pockets is a family history of depression. Beginning with her much-harried grandmother, Baumane traces emotional hardship and the manifestations of mental…

Because someone was foolish enough to bet Hollywood’s sagest actor that he couldn’t land roles in both the Ben-Hur remake and the pot-smoking teddy bear sex comedy in the span of 36 hours.

Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but it’s definitely not the only movie in the world. And it wouldn’t even be what it is had there not been movies made beforehand. In fact, the very title comes from that of a Stephen King novella with a movie-informed extension: “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption.” The adaptation removes the Hollywood actress’s name (apparently because…

    No Good Deed topped the weekend box office and knocked Guardians of the Galaxy off the top spot, ending its run of number one weeks at four (check out the 19 movies that topped the box office longer than that!). The Idris Elba/Taraji Henson starring home invasion thriller opened in a relatively modest 2175 theaters and became the seventh number one movie for producer Will Packer. Packer has had an amazing 2014, with his Ride Along, About Last Night and Think Like a Man Too all box office successes. Second place belonged to the family movie Dolphin Tale 2 with its $16.6 million, followed by…
  • Any Given Sunday Blu-Ray Review: Ahead of Its Time Football Epic

    Joel D Amos
    12 Sep 2014 | 4:01 pm
    One of our favorite gridiron films, and one of our 7 football movies that score a touchdown, is Oliver Stone’s Any Given Sunday. The film is celebrating its 15th anniversary by landing on Blu-Ray with a snazzy upgrade that features the football film that shows the game unlike any other movie has before in the highest definition sound and picture. The story of Any Given Sunday follows a pro team, the Miami Sharks, as they embark on what will prove to be a challenging season. Their starting quarterback (Dennis Quaid) gets hurt almost immediately and that forces the head coach (Al Pacino) to…
  • The Boxtrolls Clips: Elle Fanning Takes Over

    12 Sep 2014 | 1:30 pm
    Focus Features and LAIKA have released two new clips from their highly anticipated animated film that arrives in merely two weeks, The Boxtrolls! The first clip shows off what we think is one of the best parts of an all around fantastic movie. Elle Fanning’s turn as Winnie is sublime. The way she captures a Victorian English accent is the stuff of legend. The Maleficent star simply continues to impress us and audiences will surely agree when they see her do her thing as Winnie on September 26. The Boxtrolls Clip: Winnie Takes Over The second clip takes us inside the magical world of LAIKA…

    12 Sep 2014 | 12:42 pm
    After the first weekend in September arrived with no new movies, we've got three new flicks to discuss in this edition of the Weekend Movie Preview.  Families will be ready to head back into the water for Dolphin Tale 2 and thriller movie junkies will get their thrill on with No Good Deed. Lastly, the final film in the distinguished career of James Gandolfini arrives with the dark crime drama, The Drop. Let's break it down... No Good Deed: Idris Elba is delightfully devilish as the villain in this thriller that finds him terrorizing Taraji P. Henson's mother who is home with her two…

    Just days after we reported that Morgan Freeman is in Ted 2, we’ve got our first photo of Mark Wahlberg on the Seth MacFarlane set filming the sequel to the wildly successful film that gave us those unforgettable Ted quotes. As you can see in the above photo that Wahlberg posted on his social media accounts, the actor is on a motorcycle. He’s at a church, and it appears to be a wedding – but is it his? We’re thinking it’s Ted’s! After all, there will be a new relationship for Wahlberg’s character in Ted 2 as Mila Kunis could not come back, so Amanda Seyfriend stepped into the…

  • Vernon, Florida

    Rumsey Taylor
    9 Jun 2014 | 8:44 am
    Vernon, Florida is a portrait of America’s fringes, a document of a place that seems to have remained endearingly beholden to archaic mores. This is a romantic pretense, however, and those who admire the film will almost certainly find the real-life Vernon to be far more mundane and less folksy, but its history uncharacteristically perverse and violent.
  • Burn Hollywood Burn

    David Carter
    4 Jun 2014 | 1:46 pm
    One of the most spectacular flops in history, the film effectively ended the careers of Joe Eszterhas and Arthur Hiller, and it also marked the end of its film studio, Cinergi Pictures. It’s as though the film succeeds at antagonizing those whom it satarizes, and in result it is so noxious that few have opted to encounter it.
  • Pitfall

    Thomas Scalzo
    3 Jun 2014 | 1:53 pm
    Amid stark mountains of black coal and decrepit mining towns, traitors, backstabbers, and murderers carry out their soulless machinations. For those in power, selfishness and greed are the order of the day, and for the workingman, a bitter life of endless toil is rewarded only with a bitter afterlife of endless torment. And yet, beneath the caustic social commentary that dominates the film lies an almost imperceptible championing of the incorruptibility of the human spirit, injecting this otherwise bleak forecast for humanity with a modicum of hope.
  • The Adventures of Gerard

    Ian Johnston
    2 Jun 2014 | 9:18 am
    Jerzy Skolimowski’s films of the sixties - edgy, innovative, and challenging - were so clearly part of the collective new wave sweeping national cinemas of the day that the choice of The Adventures of Gerard as the first film of his international career seems doubly perplexing; it offers almost no connections with the work that went before.

  • TIFF 2014 Recap: After 19 Films in Toronto - Which Ones Stand Out?

    Alex Billington
    12 Sep 2014 | 3:40 pm
    At the end of another festival. Over the last weekend I traveled up to Toronto to attend my 8th year at TIFF, or the Toronto International Film Festival, one of the major festivals every fall. TIFF is now best known for scheduling over 300 films in their line-up, from tiny international discoveries to mainstream premieres, which means there's no way any hardcore critic/blogger/cinephile is missing this fest. There's just too many films to see, from various Sundance and Cannes holdovers that I've been waiting for, to major unveilings like the latest films from directors Jason Reitman and Mia…
  • Check Out 100% Soft's Adorable Childlike Movie MacGuffin Art Series

    12 Sep 2014 | 2:52 pm
    We just recently featured some adorable childrens book inspired artwork that pays tribute to films like Pulp Fiction and Guardians of the Galaxy with artistic cues from the classic Golden Books. Now both those films get the kiddie artwork treatment again, this time from a Los Angeles artist called 100% Soft. The style is very unique, with almost baby-like characters, and this time he's used his trademark style in a new exhibition called Lil MacGuffins, using the plot device term to drive pieces that show characters and the item they're after in the film in question. They're adorable and…

    "What is light without dark?" Every once in a while I come across something so unique, so refreshing, so exciting to watch that as soon as the lights come up I immediately want to start raving and telling others about it. This is one of those films, and I hope I can bring some additional attention to it. Thanks to a tip on Twitter from filmmaker @DarrenAronofsky, I caught an Icelandic film called Life in a Fishbowl, from director Baldvin Zophoníasson, an ensemble feature premiering at the Toronto Film Festival. Amidst all the darkness, death, stress, and horribleness in this world, here is a…
  • Dakota Fanning Caught in Victorian Love Triangle in 'Effie Gray' Trailer

    Ethan Anderton
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:15 pm
    Despite having been completed a year and a half ago, the period drama Effie Gray has been held back by silly legal entanglements from writers Even Pomerance and Gregory Murphy, both claiming that the film seemed to borrow too much from their existing plays and screenplays on the historical figure and Victorian-era love triangle. But all that's been solved, and the film is at least poised for release in the United Kingdom this fall with Dakota Fanning in the title role of Euphemia "Effie" Gray. The film follows her troubled marriage with art critic and social reformer John Ruskin (Greg Wise)…

    Over the past few years, both Rooney Mara and Dane DeHaan have become quite the impressive young actors, with the former making waves in The Social Network, Ain't Them Bodies Saints and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the latter breaking through with Chronicle and expanding with Kill Your Darlings, Life After Beth and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now the two will team up in a completely different genre for both of them as THR reports DeHaan and Mara will star in a 1920s set musical called Ziggy, which will be directed by Australian filmmaker Diesel Schwarze, a protégé of Moulin Rouge…

  • Rumor: Obi-Wan Kenobi Stand-Alone Film In The Works

    Germain Lussier
    14 Sep 2014 | 9:10 am
    As little as we know about Star Wars Episode VII, we know even less about the Star Wars stand-alone films. We know Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank and directing the first two. We’ve heard they may be origin stories and rumors have run rampant of all the various characters that might be featured. Han Solo and Boba Fett are two of the best bets, but Yoda has been mentioned too, possibly a side character in Episode VII and now another name has entered the mix. A new rumor has hit that Lucasfilm is developing an Obi Wan Kenobi stand alone film. Out of all of those rumors, this is the one…
  • Zack Snyder Kills “Stolen Batmobile” Rumor With Great Photo

    Russ Fischer
    13 Sep 2014 | 7:09 pm
    On Friday, a rumor cropped up that one of the new Batmobile vehicles had been stolen in Detroit. The story wasn’t verified, but it did end up at a couple bigger news outlets. Because who can resist the phrase “stolen Batmobile”? Thankfully it was all just a rumor, but the story did give Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder a reason to pull together some of the minor resources at his disposal for a great photo op.  Bleeding Cool had the original rumor, and also hilariously scolded CBS for picking up the story. In an update, the site even praised the Detroit Free…

    Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we go on a quest to get some love from a woman of the night, go on the hunt for some gorillas, revisit our teenage years, look back at concentration camps with footage from the front line, and have an adventure overseas with some…

  • Toronto 2014 Review: WHILE WE'RE YOUNG Is Too Proud Of Being Old

    14 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    It pains me to give a Noah Baumbach film anything less than a glowing review, especially considering there is so much that works about his new film, While We're Young. The premise is his most appealing to date, which, at a glance, involves a couple named Josh and Cornelia (Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts), struggling to come to terms with their mid-life status -- a most vexing topic indeed, and one surely perfect for Baumbach's sensibilities. But somehow, this intriguing follow-up to revelations like Francis Ha and Greenberg, despite its top-shelf story, left me with a mind less than…
  • ECHOES OF A RONIN: Watch The Impressive Danish Martial Arts Short

    14 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    Late last year, we got a taste of the Danish martial arts short Echoes of a Ronin, in the form of a gallery of images. Now, the film is finished, and you can watch it in its entirety here, with English subtitles included. Directed by Shaky Gonzalez and starring David Sakurai, Echoes of a Ronin tells a familiar story of greed, revenge and honor, only now with Danish restaurants as a backdrop. It's a stylish effort with some great fight choreography by Tim Man (of Ninja 2 fame), and with a running time of 20 minutes it doesn't even get a chance to outlast its welcome.

    13 Sep 2014 | 7:00 pm
    "Listen" is Doctor Who at its best. And its scariest. The show hasn't been this terrifying in a while, and Steven Moffat's episode manages to have a bit of everything you could possibly want. It's gripping, funny and tense, providing possibly the most effective use of Peter Capaldi's more unnerving Doctor so far and continuing to prove that there's more to Clara than most expect.Whether you like it or not, Clara's story is deeply tied to the history of the Doctor. It is through her once mysterious past that we came to know her as someone who has interacted with the Doctor throughout his…

    For some, the fourth season of Haven might have started going a little goofy. For others, at least it moved somewhat away from the episodic focus, and paid attention to bigger issues. For still others, the show is really getting good. Wherever you fall, you don’t want to miss the premiere of the fifth season, and yes, even if you are among those who thought the show was not doing its best last year. Things are going to be interesting right from the start, because it looks as though perhaps Audrey isn’t returning, and this may turn into the Mara show. Well, it doesn’t seem…

    We reviewed Transformers: Age of Extinction and They Came Together… together, even though Shane didn’t get to catch the second one with me, mainly because we needed something to balance out the Michael Bay. Transformers had us differing a bit, and not in the way either one of us expected. I gave it a higher rating than I would have guessed, and Shane was less forgiving than I’d have thought. It all came down to how much we were willing to forgive the more ridiculous notes the film shoved at us, and I ultimately had to admit that there were moments that were pretty fun. Of…

Karen Gillan is able, and comes with legions of Doctor Who fans, who are apt to tune into anything she’s in for a while at least. John Cho has fans as well, and doesn’t get the credit he deserves, largely because Harold & Kumar doesn’t exactly move you up on the Taken Seriously list. Plus, it’s yet another update of Pygmalion (though ABC‘s website irritatingly refers to it as loosely based on My Fair Lady), and those generally do pretty well for themselves. On…

    While Erik Skjoldbjærg built upon the established cinematic traditions of procedural crime thrillers, in the light of the recent trend of atmospheric crime procedurals such as True Detective, The Killing, Prisoners, 1997’s Insomnia, in hindsight looks to be a direct aesthetic antecedent  for these other more successful pictures/series.Insomnia (1997) dir.

    The Bresson brand of neo-realism is perhaps exemplified best with this unconventional character study of a Parisian thief desperately in need to self-fulfillment. Remarkably Bresson's seemingly simple approach uncluttered by the elements of traditional cinematic narrative allows the master filmmaker to create as much uncompromising tension as anything in Alfred Hitchcocks's filmography.

    After rebooting his career with two small scale earth-bound pictures, The Wrestler and Black Swan, to my surprise Aronofsky launched back into big idea cinema with the previously unfilmed biblical story of Noah and the Great Flood. It’s a strange mix of epic swagger and Hollywood heroism and the intellectual cinematic gymnastics which Aronofsky has been known for. Ultimately it’s mildly rewarding and nothing of the intense feelings of emotion he made his name for in his more successful pictures.Noah (2014) dir.

    Boyhood Richard Linklater's instant classic, filmed over the course of 12 years, tells the fictional story of a boy (Ellar Coltrane) growing up in Texas, whose parents (Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, in magnificent performances) are divorced. It's just life flowing one day into the next, one year into the next, and it's fascinating — 166 minutes that go by in a flash. This is probably the best American movie of the decade, so far. Rated R. 166 minutes. —M.LaSalle Chef One of the best movies released so far this year, this comedy stars writer-director Jon Favreau as a chef going…
  • 'The Skeleton Twins,' review: Suicide on siblings' minds

    Thomas Lee
    11 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    The Skeleton Twins Drama. Starring: Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Luke Wilson. Directed by Craig Johnson. (R: 93 minutes) Suicide can be a tricky thing. You want to perform the act quickly and (hopefully) without pain. But the deeper question behind such a drastic act is motive. For most of the "The Skeleton Twins," the absorbing indie drama from writer/director Craig Johnson, the main characters are unable to crack that mystery. In fact, answers of all kinds seem to elude siblings Milo (Bill Hader) and Maggie (Kristen Wiig). After a botched suicide attempt, Milo moves from Los Angeles to live…
  • 'The Man on Her Mind,' review: Tedium mounts with each frame

    David Lewis
    11 Sep 2014 | 9:01 am
    The Man on Her Mind Directed by Alan Hruska. With Amy McAllister, Samuel James. (Not rated. 98 minutes.) "The Man on Her Mind," a belabored, un-whimsical romantic comedy, is a case study of what can go wrong when adapting a stage play into a movie. Except for the last five minutes or so, this film doesn't have a cinematic bone in its body. The premise has promise: Nellie is having an imaginary affair with her fantasy version of Leonard, whom Nellie dated briefly but avoids at all costs. Conveniently enough, Leonard has a fantasy lover who is his version of the ideal Nellie. Contrived as all…
  • 'Take Me to the River' review: Long on music, short on history

    Thomas Lee
    11 Sep 2014 | 9:01 am
    If you look at "Take Me to the River" as an opportunity to watch legendary Memphis blues musicians demonstrate the craft, then the film succeeds handsomely. The skill and joy of these musicians is such a pleasure to watch that you almost forget that "Take Me to the River" is supposed to be a documentary. To celebrate this history, "Take Me to the River" recruited legends like William Bell, Bobby Rush and Booker T. Jones to record music with rappers like Snoop Dogg, Frayser Boy and Al Kapone. Bobby "Blue" Bland's collaboration with Yo Gotti on "Ain't No Sunshine" reminds viewers why that piece…
  • 'My Old Lady' review: musty, but affecting

    Walter Addiego
    11 Sep 2014 | 9:01 am
    My Old Lady Comedy-drama. Written and directed by Israel Horovitz. With Kevin Kline, Maggie Smith, Kristin Scott Thomas. (PG-13, 107 minutes.) With more than 70 theatrical works and a handful of screenplays to his credit, Israel Horovitz knows a thing or two about building a script. That's evident in his film directorial debut, "My Old Lady," based on his 2002 play. It's the work of a man immersed in the stage. Although the film is capably made, its roots in the theater are clear - there's lots to enjoy, but it has a slightly old-school, musty feeling about it. The central figure, Mathias…

  • What would an independent Scotland look like?

    Julia Callaway
    14 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    The UK Government will no doubt be shocked if the referendum on 18 September results in a Yes vote. However, it has agreed to respect the outcome of the referendum and so we must assume that David Cameron will accept the Scottish Government’s invitation to open negotiations towards independence. The first step will be the formation of two negotiating teams — Team Scotland and Team UK, as it were. These will be led by the governments of both Scotland and the UK, although the Scottish Government has indicated that it wants other political parties in Scotland to join with it in…

    Innovation is a primary driver of economic growth and of the rise in living standards, and a substantial body of research has been devoted to documenting the welfare benefits from it (an example being Trajtenberg’s 1989 study). Few areas have experienced more rapid innovation than the Personal Computers (PC) industry, with much of this progress being associated with a particular component, the Central Processing Unit (CPU). The past few decades had seen a consistent process of CPU innovation, in line with Moore’s Law: the observation that the number of transistors on an integrated…
  • Is Arabic really a single language?

    Connie Ngo
    13 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    All language-learners face the difficulties of regional variations or dialects. Usually, it takes the form of an odd word or turn of phrase or a peculiar pronunciation. For most languages, incomprehension is only momentary, and the similarity — what linguists often refer to as the mutual intelligibility — between the standard language taught to foreigners and the regional speech pattern is maintained. For a language such as French, only the most extreme cases of dialectical differences, such as between Parisian and Québécois or Cajun, pose considerable difficulties for both…
  • Eight facts on the history of pain management

    13 Sep 2014 | 4:30 am
    September is Pain Awareness Month. In order to raise awareness of the issues surrounding pain and pain management in the world today, we’ve taken a look back at pain throughout history and compiled a list of the eight most interesting things we learned about pain from The Story of Pain: From Prayer to Painkillers by Joanna Bourke. In the past, pain was most often described as an independent entity. In this way, pain was described as something separate from the physical body that might be able to be fought off while keeping the self intact. In India and Asia some descriptions of varying…
  • Should Scotland be an independent country?

    Sara Pinotti
    13 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    On 18 September 2014 Scots will vote on the question, ‘Should Scotland be an independent country?’ Campaigners for independence and campaigners for the union agree that this is an historic referendum. The question suggests a simple choice between different states. This grossly over-simplifies a complex set of issues and fails to take account of a range of other debates that are taking place in Scotland’s ‘constitutional moment’. Four cross-cutting issues lie behind this referendum. National identity is but one. If it was simply a matter of identity then supporters of independence…

    Observations on film art

  • ADIEU AU LANGAGE: 2 + 2 x 3D

    bordwellblog
    7 Sep 2014 | 7:36 am
    Adieu au langage (2014). Godard’s Adieu au Langage is the best new film I’ve seen this year, and the best 3D film I’ve ever seen. As a Godardolater for fifty years, I’m biased, of course. And I might feel that I have to justify taking a train from Brussels to Paris to watch it (twice). But the film seems to me superb, and it gets better after several more (2D) viewings. People complain that Godard’s movies are hard to understand. That’s true. I think they provide two different sorts of difficulty. He lards his dialogue and intertitles with so many abstract (some would say…

While paintings of Picasso and Jackson Pollock sell for a hundred million dollars or more, and lines from T. S. Eliot are quoted on the yearbook pages of alienated teenagers across the land, twentieth-century classical music still sends ripples of unease through audiences. At the same time, its influence can be felt everywhere. Atonal chords crop up in jazz.

To be blunt, there’s a better chance of Leonardo Di Caprio endorsing Ron Paul for president than seeing him in a “Saw” sequel. That makes the new horror film “Dream House” such a tease.

Yes, the tale of the 2002 Oakland A’s doesn’t supply a ticker tape ending, but for most of “Moneyball” reality provides more than enough dramatic oomph to power one of the better baseball films in recent memory.

  • Drop, The Movie Review (3/4 Stars)

    13 Sep 2014 | 7:24 am
    The crime genre is one that has had the pleasure of describing some of the greatest movies of all time, but it has described some really lousy ones as well. It’s one of the longer standing film genres in pop culture, so it’s developed a very specific set of clichés over the decades, and many filmmakers fail to deviate from them. The Drop deviates a little bit, but it doesn’t really stand out ... read more
  • One I Love, The Movie Review (3.5/4 Stars)

    13 Sep 2014 | 2:13 am
    'The One I Love' is a relationship drama told with subtlety. Duplass and Moss give an honest portrayal of a married couple attempting to reconnect. However, narrative tricks are at play. The plot is a constant series of unforeseen turns that add up to one unique and deft mix of genre crossing. Drama, humor, intrigue, emotion, and a bit of suspense (in the finale) circulate with ease. Despite... read more

    I’ve had enough of these found footage films. The Blair Witch project came out a decade and a half ago, and it doesn’t really hold up. So why are we still riding the trend it started? I’m not a horror fan, so correct me if I don’t understand the horror community, but I can’t imagine that they are still excited about this genre.

    25 Aug 2014 | 2:59 pm
    'The Expendables' series has begun to show wear. With the strong improvement of the second film, it was a disappointment to witness the decline in this third outing. It offers the least exciting bang, thus far. Most of the action isn't all that stimulating. It opens with a couple of decent short bouts and leaves the few cool moments for a so-so finale, with a long stretch of slight boredom in... read more

Facing and overcoming your fears of the unknown in order to garner the results you desire is one of the major captivating elements for both the characters and filmmakers of the upcoming horror film, ‘Encounter.’ The movie’s main characters, Ted and Lauren McBride, are a newlywed couple trying to confront their dread of the supernatural by discrediting the belief in orbs for his thesis film.

    “Humans” was once a part of Xbox’s original programming lineup, but now AMC has taken up the slack after the gaming service’s filming studio closed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, AMC has announced that it has acquired the domestic rights to the sci-fi drama series, which was produced by both Xbox and the UK’s Channel 4. The series comes from Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley and is an English-language adaptation of Sveriges Television and Matador Film’s “Real Humans.” Originally, “Humans” was on Xbox, so what happened?

    Passionately following your instincts, and allowing your intuition to guide your choices, even when the people around you are urging you not to allow your emotions dictate your decisions, is a powerful resolution that often allows people to truly pursue what they want in life. That visceral resolution is a motivating factor for the main characters and actors in co-writer-director Sam Hancock’s upcoming independent mystery film, ‘August Falls,’ which is based on the novel, ‘Looking for August,’ by Matt McKay.

    Oh, Internet. You've been around for a few decades now, but you can still delight. Today, that source of delight comes from a brilliant Tumblr called "Love, Grampa and Grandmaster Flash." Some genius noticed that an absurd number of grandparents—in attempting to sign their Facebook posts "Grandpa" or "Grandma"—accidentally let Facebook autofill the tag and ended up with seminal hip-hop emcee Grandmaster Flash. It's a small, silly mistake, but it is (a) incredible how often it happens and (b) a riot to see notes that read, for example: "Hi sweetie ...just sending you a hug ...love,…

    Leadership Network and Vanderbloemen are releasing what they claim to be "by far the biggest-scale, cross-denominational response anyone has ever collected about church finances.” Specifically, they interviewed 727 megachurches about how they spend their finances, and the report has some interesting findings, all of which are free to download here. Among the findings: A little under half of a church's annual income typically goes to staff, with senior pastors making at least 30 percent more than the next highest paid staffer. The biggest determiner of pastor salaries, by far, is the size of…

    6 Sep 2014 | 9:48 am
    As part of the Denver Film Critic Association I have apparently gotten myself into something that I might well regret: helping out a school writing class by reading and offering feedback for some young film critics. Their assignment: review and contrast the films Emma (1996) and Clueless (1995). Which means I also need to watch both these films. Yikes. My teen daughter laughed and said that Clueless is hilarious, which worries me a little bit, but she also hasn’t seen Emma, so at least I have a designated co-victim for the cinematic extravaganza. Still, what am I in for? Here’s…
  • Review: The Giver

    Dave Taylor
    15 Aug 2014 | 2:02 pm
    It’s the future and after some sort of presumed apocalyptic event, society has been rebuilt with all emotion, all differences, all fear and joy removed. The village is neat and symmetric and the family has been replaced by a unit, mother, father, two children of different ages, each in their assigned domicile. Reflecting this is the black and white cinematography: this particular future really is colorless, not just in terms of skin color, but in terms of the entire range of human experience. Based on a book of the same name, The Giver stars Brenton Thwaites as Jonas, a boy who has had…

    Michael Bay hired director Jonathan Liebesman and brought back the somewhat radioactive Megan Fox as the human lead in yet another remake of the amusing children’s tale Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. What’s Liebesman done before? Battle: Los Angeles (an incoherent mess) and Wrath of the Titans (a me-too Greek mythology flick). His lack of experience creating a polished film shows, and while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is true to the comic book origins of the tiny box turtles who grow up in the NY sewers to become smart-aleck ninjas, but it’s a dry exercise in how to string…

    31 Jul 2014 | 11:06 pm
    I really liked The Avengers, but there’s something inherently a bit dry about a group of self-important goody-goody characters. It’s the problem of Superman and Captain America (and yes, I know that Superman isn’t one of the Avengers. And never shall DC and Marvel overlap at the cineplex, alas). In fact, the only character who was any sort of relief from the tone was Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr), but his was a more abusive wit coming from a place of ego and hubris. Tedious, really, and Stark is my least favorite character in the entire Avengers squad. Enter the…

    I should start by clarifying which version of the oft-told Hercules story we’re talking about, because it’s not the animated feature from Disney and it’s most assuredly not the banal early 2014 The Legend of Hercules with Kellan Lutz in the title role. I’m talking about the summer release with the always popular muscleman Dwayne Johnson in the title role, as released jointly by Paramount and MGM. First the perhaps surprising news: I quite liked and enjoyed Hercules, finding it an unexpectedly deep story with a good cast and, of course, lots of great visual effects,…

Unable to return to the wild, which is CMA's primary mission, the sea creature was dubbed “Winter” and became a star attraction at the Aquarium, entertaining and inspiring countless visitors. In DOLPHIN TALE 2, Winter's companion dolphin dies of old age.

One night, the bar is robbed by masked gunmen and $5,000 is stolen. Bob and Marv are on the hook for the cash and the Czechians want it, as you might have guessed.

Clearly, audiences were looking for something new and this Idris Elba thriller fit the bill nicely. The film opened strong on Friday and was able to hold on throughout the weekend. Dolphin Tale 2 is the number 2 film this weekend with $16.5 million. The sequel’s numbers were slightly off of its predecessor’s, which opened with $19 million in September 2011.

Ang Lee’s 2003 version grossed just $132.1 million in the States, while Louis Leterrier’s 2008 reboot (part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon) didn’t fare much better at $134.8 million – and it cost about $20 million more.

I seem to head out somewhat in the opposite direction, stepping in and out of screening rooms while taking time to just wander the drizzly streets, browse the bookstore, and have coffee with friends whom I probably won’t be seeing again for another year. It’s during…
  • Movie Poster of the Week: “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” and the Posters of Karl Oskar Blase

    Above: 1964 poster for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Robert Wiene, Germany, 1920). I’ve written a lot about the German designer Hans Hillmann in these pages and elsewhere, and the current exhibition running through September 27 at the Kemistry Gallery is a must-see if you’re in London (there are some great images of the exhibit here if you’re not), but I only recently came across the work of a peer and compatriot of Hillmann’s, Karl Oskar Blase. Born the same year as Hillmann, on March 24, 1925, and now in his late 80s, Blase was, like Hillmann, a…

    Eden Dear Danny, How I look forward to your Wavelengths reports! They always strike me not so much as write-ups on the festival’s experimental end but as reports from a parallel world where extraterrestrial colors, patterns, and movements are the ecstatic norm. And, as a cinephile who gravitates mostly toward more classical narratives, I find these journeys into pure form both daunting and liberating. Which leads me to your closing question—how indeed to make your way through so many titles and programs? I try to balance out my dyed-in-the-wool auteurist side with a more…

    Letters to Max Dear Fern, Ah, Tsukamoto's Fires of the Plain! I liked this film very much, the director-actor-editor-cinematographer's baby-faced soldier hysterically pushing through an unforgiving jungle, unforgiving war, unforgiving humanity, slushy digital shades of the surrealism in Herzog's under-appreciated Rescue Dawn and Buñuel's Death in the Garden. I have still more to tell of the shorts in the experimental Wavelengths sections, so please excuse my continued digressions away from the features you are seeing (and I too, but am leaving to your choice words!).

The art was created by DeviantArt user OnlyMilo a.k.a. Ruiz Burgos, and they include Wonder Woman, Clark Kent, Zatanna, Joker, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. I like coming across Rockwell style superhero art like this. It just gives these characters a cool, classy vintage tone. I hope you like this set!

Jersey Boys.  If Da Man had his way, the title of this film would be Jersey Boy, or maybe The One Season, or possibly just Frankie Valli. How to Train Your Dragon 2  Dragons may be creations of fantasy, but the reality is that this sequel holds its own against the original.  Hiccup, Toothless, and the gang are back together, and this is a flight of fantasy you’ll want to take.

If you’ve been looking forward to seeing the Sentinels on the big screen—you might have to keep on looking.  Like every other X-Men movie, this one devolves into a predictable showdown with Magneto. Maleficent. Forget about fantasy violence and frightening images, why doesn’t the MPAA warn audiences about gratuitous pixie action?

His latest film is one of them. Belle. In French, it means a beautiful woman. But what about the film…about a beautiful mulatto woman born into an aristocratic world that can never fully accept her? Is Belle “bon” or simply “pas si bon”? Godzilla.  The tag line for the 1998 Godzilla was “Size matters.” Fortunately, the tag line for the latest reimagining of Godzilla could be “Talent matters.”…

    Anything good on the gogglebox? Howdy-do, gentle listeners. Your hosts Mark & Jerry offer something a little different on this episode of The Horror Movie Show: an all-television lineup. Beginning with some comments & questions about the early days of AMC‘s excellent zombie series The Walking Dead, the guys then try to figure out what the heck is going on Under the Dome. Is the latter series just making it up as it goes along, or is there some method to the madness? Next is the first of four British made-for-TV shows.

This week the boys of summer discuss a handful of movies — mostly new, but one lovely chestnut as well. Tom Cruise‘s summer blockbuster is another science-fiction adventure: Edge of Tomorrow. Sure, the title sounds like a soap opera from the ’60s, but this tale of a guy caught in a temporal loop is a cross between Groundhog Day & Starship Troopers.

    After laying down some newspaper, buttoning up a clear raincoat, and putting on a song from the Huey Lewis And The News album Fore, New York’s Second Stage Theatre has brutally murdered its production of the American Psycho musical. OK, Second Stage didn’t kill it by choice, but the theater did cancel the show’s upcoming 2015 run after the producers at Act 4 Entertainment decided to pull the rights. This comes from The New York Times, which suggests that the decision to stop the off-Broadway run before it starts is actually because Act 4 wants to jump directly to an actual on-Broadway…

    English-speaking audiences were likely enticed by the general premise for Guardians Of The Galaxy, as explained in its initial trailers. But in Japan, where the film has not yet opened, advertisers are understandably going for a more visual approach. Stock images of raccoons and plants precede action-packed shots featuring Rocket and Groot, whose novelty as characters doesn’t require language. In a third promo, stock photos of men falling down and spilling things help relay the message that these characters are just a semi-animated, ragtag group of almost-heroes. Pair all of this with an…

The video, which looks like a surreal Salvador Dali painting coming to life, boasts a signature Louboutin stiletto that transforms into the top of a nail lacquer bottle. There are images of white castles made of weapon-like stilettos spikes, trippy nail polish bottles floating from the sky and, of course, abrupt visions of fingernails that are painted in the classic red Louboutin polish.  The 51-second video is wonderful,…
  • #FILM: The Big Deal About the James Brown Biopic, “Get on Up”

    Israel Daramola
    1 Aug 2014 | 10:05 am
    Chadwick Boseman, Nelson Ellis, Dan Aykroyd, Jill Scott, Craig Robinson and Octavia Spencer in a film directed by Tate Taylor. Based on the life story of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, the film gives a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of the man behind the legend–from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. I’ll say this about “Get On Up”:  it’s ambitious. A PG-13 film, produced by Brian Grazer and directed by Tate Taylor (“The Help”), about the life James Brown…
  • #FILM: The Big Deal About Linklater’s 12-Years-In-the-Making Drama, “Boyhood”

    Israel Daramola
    18 Jul 2014 | 8:03 am
    Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Lorelei Linklater and Ethan Hawke in a film by Richard Linklater. The film tells a story of a young boy dealing with a fractured family and the angst of adolescence over the course of twelve years, from age 6 to age 18. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” is sweeping and sporadic, jumping from year to year sometimes in a blur; much like the act of growing up itself. “Boyhood” tells the story of the evolution of Mason, Jr (Ellar Coltrane) over a 12 year period, starting from age 6 and going on until he hits 18. The film was shot over a 12…

    At first, this year's Best Supporting Actor Oscar looked like a race between J.K. Simmons as a monstrous music teacher in "Whiplash" and Mark Ruffalo as a tragic Olympian in "Foxcatcher," but now Edward Norton just surged up our charts for portraying a rowdy stage actor in "Birdman."

    With the Academy Awards ceremony several months away and many of the major contenders still unseen, I’ll admit that I have very little confidence in my current Oscar predictions.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy

    21 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    Guardians of the Galaxy is among the many lesser-known Marvel properties and now it too has its own film adaptation. Since the series exists somewhat outside the Avengers and Spider-man franchises, this new world offers a fresh canvas compared to the tired superhero action genre, but the tricks and wonder are all the same. Exhibiting an unabashed sense of humor beyond structurally imperative comedic-relief, Guardians features the same cosmic rough-and-tumble as the X-Men and Iron Man action that becomes difficult to follow.

    Self-professed voyeur, Ben, captures his life on camera, as do all his friends. He admits he’s hacked into his friend’s videos and even CCTV systems and cobbles together a series of fragmented vignettes portraying the demons he and his friends harbor. Ben also visits a therapist who objects to Ben filming their session, however, but he does it anyway. It becomes clear that Ben, and perhaps even his friends, want to be the stars of their own films. The final result reveals how these characters’ lives have become interwoven into a thematic narrative.
  • Boyhood

    18 Aug 2014 | 10:14 am
    Series of films portraying a single character’s life during different time periods is nothing new to cinema. Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, however, crafts a singular narrative about a young boy from kindergarten to his first weekend in college, and was produced for just a handful of days each year for twelve years. This production method required faith in the crew and a disciplined approach to keep the project alive, a concept that is truly visible in the film’s storyline.
  • The Conspiracy

    13 Aug 2014 | 9:06 pm
    The shouting matches and the vociferous activism of conspiracy theorists tend to fall on deaf ears. It’s not that they are wrong; it’s that their ideas and links are so far-fetched or conflicting that they themselves appear legitimately crazy. The Conspiracy takes all those crack-pot theories and myths of American secret societies and New World Orders and melds them into a faux-documentary that is suspenseful, captivating, and even somewhat revelatory, whether you truly buy into these theories or just find them slightly entertaining.

    Spy thrillers are bound to become more complex with the NSA leaks uncovering a massive global surveillance system, and A Most Wanted Man is perhaps the first film to take a crack at it. Adapted from John le Carré’s eponymous novel, A Most Wanted Man extends the spy genre enough so that it’s original, but not to the point where it’s unrecognizable.

  • Revenge of the Green Dragons: Too Bad to Be True

    Chris D'souza
    10 Sep 2014 | 11:50 am
    The expectations from Revenge of the Green Dragons were high and why not. Coming from director Andy Lau, the maker of Infernal Affairs, and executive produced by Martin Scorsese (who won an Oscar for helming the Hollywood remake, The Departed, of Lau’s film), the film has solid pedigree behind it. However, it fails, and spectacularly at that. In fact, it is almost unfathomable to think that old Marty would associate his name with a project that is so obviously bad, it’s cringe worthy. The story of the film is based on the rivalry between the Asian gangs in the Chinatown and…

    Dustin Marcellino’s ‘The Identical’ has propaganda written all over it. It has been funded by the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (the MJAA), but even if you didn’t know this, you can still guess the purpose and intent of the movie. Is it any coincidence that a movie that shows a pastor praises Israel’s victory in the 1967 Six-Day and displaying a menorah is released at a time when Israel has been on the receiving end of sharpest criticism it has faced since its creation? No its not, and the anyone who considers The Identical anything but a project to draw…

  • Let’s Be Cops – a Drunken Frat Boy Comedy

    Chris D'souza
    22 Aug 2014 | 11:14 am
    Some of the best comedies ever made have been based on characters working in law enforcement. Hot Fuzz, Beverly Hill Cops and Police Academy are a few of the instant classics that are excellent examples of what a cop movie should be all about. On the other hand, Let’s Be Cops is a disastrous attempt at recreating that humor. Even though it tries to be like those classics, it falls flat. The story revolves around Ryan (Jake Johnson) and Justin (Damon Wayans). Just like any friends, they like to drink and go out for karaoke. However, they are unhappy at being unable to make it big in LA.

    Howl's Moving Castle is an animated film directed by the acclaimed Hayao Miyazaki, based off of a novel of the same name.  Not being an expert of anime (my knowledge pretty much extends to Evangelion and Evangelion alone), I'm not sure how this fits into his filmography.  From what I've read, this isn't one of his better films.  I can't speak for this, as the only other Miyazaki film I've seen at the time of writing this is Spirited Away (also a great movie).  But what I can speak for is that both Spirited and this film are some of the most beautifully nuanced and…

    The X-Men franchise has had a hell of a bunch of ups and downs.  The first two installments hold up pretty well and are still entertaining, if slightly dated.  The third film was never good and certainly isn't now.  After that, the series got weird and started going in a bunch of different directions, with varying results.  X-Men Origins: Wolverine was hilariously bad, X-Men First Class was also pretty lackluster (suffering from a lot of the same goofiness that Origins did), but the followup sequel to Origins, simply titled The Wolverine, was a marked improvement.  So…

An extremely unprofessional reading, be warned, but if you're yearning to hear Matt's drone, this may hold you over.Book Description: Zara's mind has been re-wired to do away with sleep, a requirement for piloting mankind's first interstellar star ship.

    Matt and Mark are going on a summer hiatus, but will be back mid-to-late September for our Halloween run-up horror-a-thon. To tide you over, we review the Mel Gibson film The Passion of the Christ. Beloved by the devout, it's time for the atheists perspective. And it cannot be denied, TPOTC is a flat-out good film, regardless of its two-millennium of baggage. Matt takes a psychological perspective while Mark provides the Christian context. A film that is guilty by association, it deserves an honest viewing, even by the most cynical and critical among us. And the South Park guys can go hang.
  • 131 Stranger Than Paradise

    11 Aug 2014 | 9:28 pm
    Matt and Mark review the Jim Jarmusch indie darling Stranger Than Paradise. A film ahead of its time, it manages to capture the Kurouac feel despite its early 80's setting. Speaking to the aimless twenty somethings, there's a lot to relate to. Unfortunately in Jarmusch's endeavor, this atmosphere seems to come at the expense of plot and theme. What is this movie about? Not sure. Although, I'm sure Jim Jarmusch would retort in an ironic hipster quip that would leave you defenseless.Download: 113 Stranger Than Paradise

    27 Jul 2014 | 9:05 pm
    The third and final review of the John Carpenter/Kurt Russell trilogy, this week we discuss Escape from New York. Mark's virgin viewing coupled with Matt's nostalgia result in contrary opinions. Does Escape from New York really not work? Does its unique premise and the quintessential movie anti-hero Snake Plissken override some of its more 2D performances? It's hard to say. But one could argue if it really matters in the end. One thing we do learn watching Escape, is that the rumors of Snake Plissken's premature demise may have been greatly exaggerated.Download: 130 Escape from New York

    Let's turn this up to 11! Matt and Mark have come to the realization that it's a challenge to review comedies properly, and Spinal Tap is no different. But we give it a go, and as such, end up rambling quite a bit. Perhaps more tangential than usually, on this podcast we try to probe the cliched and spoof-worthy realm of heavy metal pop music, a comedy rich landscape. Spinal Tap holds a mirror up to the self-indulgent adolescent rocker, and no matter how close it hits to home, bands to this day continue to indulge the silliness. Just as rock will never die, neither will Spinal…

    Ryne Barber
    11 Sep 2014 | 12:22 pm
    As Above, So Below is a sort of mantra in John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle’s film; it works to both define the netherworld that the characters experience during their descent into the catacombs of France, and it also becomes the defining moment for the film’s theme. One must recognize that their own actions bring events into being, that being the real meaning behind alchemy and the Philosopher’s Stone that the protagonists search for throughout the movie. The definition of the title is even delivered directly to the audience about halfway through. Yet the connotations of…

    If settings alone were enough to buoy a poor film to a great one, Killer Mermaid would be a masterpiece. The lush landscapes and beautiful vistas of the Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas are the backdrop for all of the ugly things that happen in the film, providing a striking contrast to the horrors of Mamula, the island the protagonists visit before they’re brutally murdered and fed to the fishes. Likewise, the beauty of the setting mimics the irresistible call of the siren song, the mermaid’s gorgeousness, the pull of the sea. Granted, these similes aren’t actually pursued…

    When people find out you’re a film lover, they tend to ask you what your favourite film is. When you explain your taste is more for the gruesome realms of cult and exploitation cinema, their next question is usually what the worst film you’ve ever seen is.

As The 13th Floor and all four of the other tapes in the vote were released through Medusa Home Video, I’ll also give you a bit of…

    First off, a big thanks to those of you who took the time to vote for which movie you’d like to see covered on Adventures in VHS Episode 13. After leaving the poll up for a couple of weeks, we have a winner! Rather fittingly considering the show number, the video you most wanted to rent was… So there we go. It was an interesting race, but despite an early lead by Wizards of the Lost Kingdom, then The Sisterhood, The 13th Floor really charged out in front. In the end, it was the clear winner, with over 38 per cent of the vote. There were no clearly unpopular choices though, so who…

    I had no clue that Toho had remade Mothra and then added a couple of sequels until I discovered that double feature DVD Sony put out back in 2000. Yeah, I bought it, and then wished I hadn’t after I started watching the first one. It was the direction they took with it that destroyed my interest. They made it for kids. I’m not sure it all the way through. I think I may have done a lot of fast forwarding, but I do remember putting on the second, thinking for some reason it would be better. It wasn’t. It was the same tone, and I remember doing a lot of fast forwarding on it too.

Earlier in the year it was Enemy (2013) with Jake Gyllenhaal and based on a Portuguese novel called, “The Duplicated Man,” but according to Wikipedia, “It was translated into English and published as The Double in 2004.” Now we have The Double (2013) another “double-goer” flick this time with Jesse Eisenberg and another that was also…

    Were about a week and a half out from the return of FOXs hit genre piece Sleepy Hollow. Season one impressed utilizing some solid screenwriting quality special effects and convincing performers. For some it was a surprise for others it was an expected success. Regardless the bar has now been set and FOX will be summoned to answer the call of surpassing the impression left by season one. Not an easy feat but possible. And lead performers Tom Mison (Ichabod Crane) and Nicole Beharie (Abbie Mills) sound good and confident when making the declaration that season two is going to kick ass.

    This isnt an out and out horror film thats obvious. It looks like its actually a dramatic coming of agelove story with one impressive and massive monster. But dont take that assesment to be fact and dont take the words massive and monster and leap to conclusions. You shouldnt expect a Godzillaesque pic here this one is on a completely different and very unique level. And its damn inspirational. There are few things as gratifying as indie films that go miles above and beyond the call of duty all in the name of creating a genuinely fascinating film.

  • The Forbidden Girl (2014) Review

    12 Sep 2014 | 11:35 am
    I believe excellent films have an enigmatic spark and that spark ignites a spark in us the viewer. What that spark is exactly isnt always clear. Sometimes the script just feels right. Sometimes the performers captivate us or the story swallows us where we sit. Whatever the spark truly is I think it can vary in design and it is sometimes an element we cannot even identify. But its there and we know it because the movies that possess it are the movies that move us as human beings. The Forbidden Girl has a spark alright but it isnt a spark to praise its an igniter of fatigue and complete and…

Im not opposed to a filmmaker changing my mind either. The latest from this duo Extraterrestrial is an extremely dark alien flick that could be just the swing in career momentum to see a whole lot of new fans added to the already existing supporters of The Vicious Brothers. Ill certainly been tuning in for this one.

    Nearly seventy percent of Captives is a fantastic romantic drama. Julia Ormond is a newly divorced dentist who starts working part-time at a minimum security prison, where she begins a liaison with inmate Tim Roth. Frank Deasy's script concentrates primarily on Ormond and her experiences–with occasions scenes for Roth amongst the inmates, but that first seventy minutes of the film is from Ormond's perspective. Director Pope carefully, meticulously presents Ormond's story, from her experiences with her ex-husband, her friends, her family, herself. The romance with Roth is…

    Uncle Tom's Bungalow manages to be both appallingly racist and a little progressive. Director Avery turning the slave trader into the devil, poking a little fun at the angelic white girl, general mocking of Southern cultural all around…. But Bungalow just isn't a good cartoon. Ben Harrison's script–with Tedd Pierce obnoxiously narrating–doesn't even include a bungalow. It's just for the title. The first two or three minutes is setting up the characters and setting up the characters is the cartoon being both racist (with the black characters) and…

    From Her to Eternity, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' first album, runs about forty-four minutes. This short film–part of a comprehensive series (Do You Love Me Like I Love You), runs about forty minutes. It consists of band members, fans, journalists–everyone except Nick Cave–sitting in front of black and talking to the camera. Directors Forsyth and Pollard clearly told the interviewees to look directly into the camera. Some do, some don't; either way, the effect is startling. The film has a little narrative.

    3 Sep 2014 | 8:16 am
    For The Bride of Frankenstein, director Whale takes a contradictory approach. It's either more is more, or less is less. More music, all the time. Franz Waxman's frequently playful music rarely fits its scenes, unless Whale is going for a melodramatic farce, which he really doesn't seem to be doing. I kept hoping he would be, because it might make the film more compelling. More Monster–Boris Karloff is nonsensically running around the countryside, finding someone to accidentally kill or not. William Hurlbut's screenplay contrives connections between loose, if…

I really enjoyed most of Season 1, but I feel like Marvel needs to make some big changes to the series.

    Feeling completely disillusioned with life in Thatcher's Britain, charismatic activist Mark Ashton (Ben Schnetzer) sees the plight of the miners as similar to that of his and his friends in the gay and lesbian community. He pulls together a group of friends and forms the L.G.S.M (Lesbians & Gays Support the Miners), a group dedicated to raising funds for the striking miners. Despite raising a significant amount of money, the miners union rejects their help so they form a partnership with a remote mining village in Wales.

    Chloe Grace Moretz stars as Mia, a talented teenage cellist whose life is abruptly thrown into the balance when a car crash leaves her in a coma and the rest of her family in a similar position. The film is a mix of flashbacks from the year leading up to the accident and a present day, out-of-body Mia watching the events surrounding her and deciding whether her survival is worth fighting for. Inevitably, there's a boy in Mia's life – promising rocker Adam (Jamie Blackley) – and their dreamy romance provides the bulk of the flashback narrative. Though it is soppy and often overwrought in a…

I was playing around with the idea of what happens to a man who not only considers himself civilised but also carries all the accolades and virtues of his society and is recognised as a good upstanding citizen, meeting something so blunt and so animalistic and so callous that his humanity is shredded. Or where the pain is so great that he loses himself, so that was the departure point. As you may or may not know, I…

Wallace wants to call her but Chantry makes it clear that she has a boyfriend (Rafe Spall) and all they'll ever be is friends.

That would be Tom Hardy, adding fascinating layers to his role as Bob, lead bartender at his cousin Marv’s (James Gandolfini) place in a rough section of New York City. Well, it used to be Marv’s bar until he, as Bob says, “blinked,” and allowed a takeover by some Chechan gangsters. Now, the bar is often used to launder cash for the foreign mob, and they don’t much like it when Bob and Marv are robbed one…

Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s accounting of his scandalous last days, The Last of Robin Hood, sidesteps the tawdry details and tries to shed some light on how it all could have happened. For the unenlightened, Flynn is best known for his Hollywood swashbuckling films of the 30s and 40s and just slightly less known for his wicked ways. He died at 50 in the arms of his teenaged lover, whose mother was later charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor for…

    Much like crude forms of sampling existed before purpose built sampling technology, mash ups existed before non-linear editing equipment and digitized media made it easy. Just as tape trading thrived before Bandcamp, bootleg VHS tapes made the rounds of the country, doorstep to doorstep and hand to hand before YouTube. Though often these tapes were violent, pornographic or just plain bizarre, plenty were pet projects, experiments and forgotten cult classics that refused to die. So it is with this nearly thirty year old mash up of Disney's Winnie the Pooh and Apocalypse Now.

    With a gradual build and little to nothing in the way of sudden movements, Kelly Reichardt has quietly announced herself as one of the best filmmakers living today. Capturing the fringes of society with hypnotic grace and a confidence in subtlety that demands close attention, she has created a small but remarkably strong body of work that is uniform in its quality. Reichardt continues to impress with Night Moves, her latest and most conventional film to date. It seems almost perverse that the midpoint of Reichardt’s new film is marked by something as crass and undignified as an explosion.

He’s great-looking, very smart, witty, confident, and to top all, he is the best closer in town. He can win in court, but he mostly doesn’t even let cases go that far. Unsurprisingly, he’s about to become a senior partner. Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a different kind of genius.

It’s one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time, though if I had to talk percentages that movie is 80% hilarity and 20% romance. Something’s Gotta Give is a bit more romantic, though the balance is probably more 60% comedy and 40% romance. It’s safe to call Meyers a superstar when it comes to romcom writer/directors. She writes great stories, directs while remaining honest to her…

They killed one of my three beloved characters (Eli, Diane and Will). In fact they killed my favorite character Will Gardner (Josh Charles) – the leading male character of the show in the middle of the season. But even before Will died, things had gone a little awry: -       Most cases weren’t that interesting. -       I wasn’t crazy about Florick/Agos, especially since “Florick” got there because she wanted to stay with her husband…
  • The Mentalist Season 6 Finale: Very Well Done!

    19 May 2014 | 11:22 am
    My last post was about why I was happy The Mentalist was renewed for a 7th season, and the finale didn’t disappoint. In fact, it was one of the best season finales I have seen this year. Let’s take a look at Season 6 before talking about the finale: Simon Baker as Patrick Jane -solving cases and making trouble at the same time. Image via seat42f.com. After the shaky seasons 4 and 5, season 6 delivered as a whole. Sure, it wasn’t as gritty as the first two seasons, but it didn’t need to be. Red John had been killed, Jane had avoided prison and had time to digest and move on. Agents…

    Mayweather v. Maidana  I waited to finish this post until after the fight. That was my mistake. After a great fourth round, Marcos Maidana lost all steam. The other highlight to this fight was a biting incident. This fight can best be summed up with the words of Maidana in the post fight interview: “I just wanna go home”. Utopia This game has what you would think is a great concept. Imagine having a social experiment where we take a bunch of people, throw them on their own land and see what happens. How do they interact with others? What type of laws do they make? Can these…

  • WWE Star Batista Signs On For More Marvel Roles as Drax

    12 Sep 2014 | 6:09 pm
    WWE superstar Batista filmed Guardians of the Galaxy and then re-signed with the WWE to start his farewell run with the company. His entire return was a disaster as the WWE pushed him immediately into winning the Royal Rumble and getting the WWE title shot at Wrestlemania. Fans turned on him and CM Punk quit because of it. Batista ended up doing the right thing – ie. the job to Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania. However, he left two months later, as per his contract, to start promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. He was supposed to return after that, around the time of SummerSlam. He…

    Earlier in the week, some spy photos leaked of the Batmobile in action during the new Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice shoot. It looks like a very old beaten up version of the Dark Knight’s Tumbler. Check out that photo below: Then, after that photo made the rounds of the Internet, Zack Snyder jumped and released his own photo – a high quality shot that looks like the Batmobile was just cleaned. So, looking at the Batmobile photos (both the one from the shooting and the clean version that Zack Snyder posted), do you like the design? Is this something that you think will work on…

    Cool Reviews Rule

  • Lucy Movie Review

    James Ian McKenzie
    8 Sep 2014 | 10:51 am
    When the press materials first came out, if there was anything to be said about the new film by Luc Besson (Leon, The Fifth Element, The Transporter, Taken), it's that it was too similar to 2011's Limitless, but the difference here, as it turns out, is that it pushes the concept further, in the realms of superheroism. While transporting a designer drug, Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) accidentally takes in a large quantity of it, lending her the ability to access more than 10% of her brain. Something which I didn't know going in - the percentage she can access actually increases as the film goes…

    After allot of positive feedbacks for the film I finally found the time and sat down in anticipation of watching Captain America the Winter Soldier. Like we all remember the first Captain America from 2011 was not any good and from that disaster you could only get better, and that was exactly what we got from The Winter Soldier. The film started very good with a lot of light funny humor between Steve Rogers and the Natasha Romanoff, continued with great action sequence featuring Captain America The Black Widow and even Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo) had a great performance, not in that…

Surprisingly enough Neeson succeeded sweeping into the space that was left empty and he did pretty well for himself especially when some younger guys who tried making the same move failed horribly (Brad Pitt, Will Smith and Jamie Foxx).Non-Stop - Liam NeesonNonstop started pretty good with the thrilling beginning that continued just until the villain of the film ditched the phone,…

  • [POSTER OF THE WEEK] - Birdman

    Ben Hayward
    10 Aug 2014 | 12:07 pm
    From the mind of the Mexican auteur, Alejandro G Inarritu, comes the poster for Birdman; a very different spin on a superhero movie. The bold, cartoonish design immediately grabbed me as I was scrolling through mundane poster after mundane poster on IMDB. It's also nice to see Keaton continue his resurgence after his entertaining turns in both Need for Speed and RoboCop earlier in the year. In the lead roleKeaton is Riggan Thomson; a former movie superhero who is struggling to stay relevant in a fast-moving industry that's quickly forgetting him. In the past Inarritu has given us deeply…

    3 Aug 2014 | 5:33 am
    This is the sinister US theatrical poster for Daniel Radcliffe's upcoming horror/fantasy, Horns. At least three Horns posters have now been released but with its awesome title art and minimalism, this one has cemented itself as Poster of the Week. It's also interesting to note the placement of Daniel Radcliffe's name. The designers could've easily plastered it along the top to ensure audiences are aware of his involvement but the subtle placement allows the movie to stand on its own merits.A far cry from the family-friendly world of Harry Potter, Horns sees Daniel Radcliffe under the tutelage…

    It has been two films in the First Class timeline for young Charles Xavier and actor James McAvoy seems to have grown hair in the most recent film Days of Future Past instead of losing it. Of course there was that off-handed joke in X-Men: First Class where Hank McCoy says to Charles that Cerebro would work better if he shaved Charles head.  But beyond that we have yet to see James McAvoy go bald leading him from simple telepath Charles Xavier to Professor X (Played by Patrick Stewart)Well, while speaking with The Huffington Post the actor reveals that he doesn't have any specifics on…

    Andrew Garfield is easily the best Spider-Man in one of the worst Spider-Man movies to date. Many non-comic book fans loved the most recent web-slinger flick enough that it grossed over $700 Million at the world wide box office. But the core comic book fans rank it just above Spider-Man 3 with that oh so terrible emo Parker. Now Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been pushed back to 2018 with The Sinister Six getting its time to shine in 2016. Why? Because of the higher ups at Sony. Andrew Garfield tells The Daily Beast"When you have something that works as a whole, and then you start removing portions…

    In new British thriller Before I Go to Sleep, Nicole Kidman plays an amnesiac who wakes up each day with no memory of the past 20 years, due to a traumatic incident that left her physically and psychologically damaged. Gradually uncovering the mystery of her past, she must learn who to trust – her doctor played by Mark Strong, or her husband played by Colin Firth. Let’s call it Mumento.  I’m going to try to write this review without making any obvious jokes about the sadly appropriate title, which won’t be easy given the disappointing drabness of the direction.

He ends up living there, for some reason, then secretly kills people they know, for some reason, leading the mother to tell him she doesn’t know how she would manage without him, forgetting all the awful things that have happened in her life since he arrived. Then he kills some more people, for some reason. A mishmash of various better films, the scarce moments of originality in this trash heap are even worse than the hackneyed, clichéd and…
  • Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

    Dan Meier
    8 Sep 2014 | 1:04 am
    The second instalment in Frank Miller’s graphic novel franchise plunges us back into the seedy depths of Sin City, a place so lawless and depraved it makes Gotham City look like Munchkinland. Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s 2005 original epitomised style-over-substance, with style cool enough to make it all work rather well. And while Sin City: A Dame to Kill For brings nothing new, it’s still impressive to see such a seamless combination of CGI and live action, which actually looks like the panels of a comic book have come to life. Stacy Keach as Eric Pickles. Sin…

    After his final boxing match ever at the end of Rocky III, Rocky seems to still be reigning Heavyweight Champion of the Word, meaning he’s now come out of retirement more times than Peter Mandleson or Paul von Hindenburg. This time his inevitable return to boxing comes in the form of the vicious Soviet fighter Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren). Rocky is likeable because he’s the reluctant fighter. He doesn’t crave fame, glory or wealth. He wasn’t keen to fight Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) in Rocky II, and only stepped back into the ring because he had a wife and kid to…

But when the loose ends in a case don’t tie up, he and his new partner Assad (Fares Fares) make further investigations, against the wishes of their superiors.

    Actors transforming their bodies for roles in movies is nothing new. We all remember Matthew McConaughey’s incredible (and slightly terrifying) transformation for his magnificent portrayal of Ron Woodroof in Dallas Buyers Club. And we can’t forget Charlize Theron in Monster. I think we can all agree those are impressive transformations; however, they just can’t compete with Haley Joel Osment’s new look for his role in the Kevin Smith film, Yoga Hosers.

    9 Sep 2014 | 5:56 am
    Justin Marks only has one film to his credit at the moment, which is “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.” This is only because every project he has been involved in seems to become stuck in development hell. Among the movies he has been attached to is “He-Man,” “20,00 Leagues Under The Sea” and “Shadow of the Colossus.” However, with the new “Jungle Book” adaptation in production, it seems the writer’s luck is on the turn. “Top Gun 2” has been in the pipeline for some time. It was the passing of Tony Scott that left the project in limbo. Jerry Bruckheimer remains…
  • The Art of Self Publishing Gives Birth to a New Graphic Novel, “Deer Editor”

    Writing a good story, whether it was for a comic book or a novel, seemed a long-winded process not long ago. Not only did you have to come up with the goods, you had to hope you got good feedback from your publishers, otherwise the product never saw the light of day. Thanks to the Internet and its many uses, self publishing has given comic book writers and authors a new outlet to promote their wares. In addition, the birth of crowd funding operations like Kickstarter allow people to back such creativity. One of the recent successful self publishing projects is “Deer Editor” by Ryan…

    It’s no mistake to say that superhero-influenced media is on the rise. After finally getting it right, we have seen movie iterations of “Batman” “The Avengers” and “Superman” as well as a successful television series such as “Smallville” and “Arrow” as well as the upcoming “Gotham” and “Constantine.” Television series make a good Launchpad for popular heroes who may not necessarily reap the rewards on the big screen, but provide enough punch to make a popular television series. “Supergirl” will be the next superhero to have her own show, and it will be…

Unlike the original Jungle Book animated film by Disney, this new version will be released by Warner Bros. studios, so it may be a little more adult-friendly, especially since Serkis himself has described the film as ‘darker’.

There is, of course, lots of speculation about what Apple will announce, but there are no definite details, so it is best to wait and see what develops.

    For months now, White Collar fans have been wondering when will USA Network air the final six episodes of the show. Well, today they have announced that White Collar‘s sixth and final season will premiere on November 6th and run continuously for six weeks. “From its inception, White Collar captured a massive and loyal following, in large part due to the incredible on-screen chemistry between Matt [Bomer] and Tim [DeKay], who deserve credit for one of the most brilliantly performed ‘bromances’ in all of television,” USA Network president Chris McCumber said in a statement. “The…

    It seems like an annual thing now to have Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star in the same movie together. In 2012, they starred in David O. Russell‘s Silver Linings Playbook, which I thought was outstanding and Cooper deserved all the credit he received, and then again in Russell’s 2013 film, American Hustle, which I thought was less than mediocre. I was utterly disappointed with Christian Bale‘s performance and though Lawrence’s acting was stale. Now, in Fall 2014, the golden Oscar duo–I’m giving them that name because no matter what movie they come…

GTA V sold a tens of millions of copies within its first week and continued to sell throughout the holidays. But, once everyone who wanted the game owned the game there was one more thing to be done–re-release it on the new systems!

     I recently watched an interview with J.K. Rowling which took place in 1998; she had just published her first Harry Potter book. She appeared mystified that the story she had spent seven years creating had sold 30,000 copies in the U.K; it had beaten the odds of what her publishers had thought were possible (she had been told that children’s books just didn’t sell in large numbers). In a café, somewhere in Scotland, she sat unrecognisable to her now self, with long curly red hair and a baggy woollen jumper, a cup of coffee nestled on the table beside her elbow. She spoke about the…

    “Heroes don’t look like they used to, they look like you do…”Today most of us woke up to the news that Robin Williams had died in the early hours of this morning. Initial findings suggest that the cause of death was suicide due to asphyxia. I don’t usually feel the need to comment on celebrity deaths, whilst every death is sad, and tragic in some of the recent losses that the celebrity world has had to come to terms with. I never really felt like my life would be affected. I appreciated their work I would notice and miss their presence on some of my favourite shows.

You could see it as the real-time life story it promotes itself as, a unique, psychological and philosophical exploration of the ups and downs of readjustment when growing up and getting older.

    It has been 35 years since The Night He Came Home. John Carpenter’s independent masterpiece turned 35 recently, so I thought it would be a good idea to go back and take a look at one of the greatest horror films ever made. And looking back on it now, you’d never think it was 35 years old, as it absolutely stands the test of time, and is arguably better than some of the horror films released today.Telling the story of Michael Myers, who, at the age of 6 brutally murders his teenage sister after she sleeps with her boyfriend (this is where that horror trope comes from!) Years later,…

    Riding high on emotion and melodrama, Mary Kom packs in enough punch to keep you rooting for the film and our protagonist till the end.I'm not sure how much of this real-life tale was fictionalized but director Omung Kumar takes enough cinematic liberties to hold the audience's interest and get its cash registers ringing.For a first-time director, Mary Kom is an above-average attempt. The screenplay is pacy, leaving no room for distractions except the dramatic flashbacks of Mary's child delivery scenes, which intended to create a build up, but end up all sizzle no steak.If there's only one…

    Fans of the late, great Richard Pryor will find their cornflakes tasting a little sweeter, because director Lee Daniels has named Mike Epps as the leading man for his planned biopic of the X-rated comic. As if to make the news official, Epps has been pictured kissing the ring of Jennifer Lee, Pryor’s widow. This all stems from when both she and Pryor nominated Epps to play the part if they were to ever make the biopic themselves. Coincidentally, The Hangover star played Pryor last year in an as yet unreleased movie about Nina Simone. For now, however, the untitled Daniels project is…

  • The Best of 1966 Batman/Bruce Wayne

    VALT z
    9 Sep 2014 | 8:42 am
    Long before the dark and heroic Batman became known to 21st century audiences, there was another style of Batman - a much more "square" Batman. Throughout the 1960's Adam West captured the hearts of many Batman lovers with his campy style, witty puns, and stone cold delivery. We held our breath with every incredible discovery, wordy verbiage, or life-long lesson taught to the Boy Wonder. The Batman we will always love is remembered in this montage, a collection of his best from the 1966 "Batman The Movie". Enjoy.

  • Interview: Zack Parker - Director of Proxy

    Christopher George
    12 Sep 2014 | 9:08 pm
    We recently had a chance to interview the director of Proxy. Check it out here.TMS: I finally had a chance to check out Proxy. I’m a huge fan of both the horror and thriller genres. How would you define Proxy? Is it thriller, horror, or your own distinct blend of the two?  ZP: I think the answer to that question depends on who you ask. Some see it as horror, others a thriller, suspense, etc.. I suppose the confusion or debate comes from the fact that it is a very dark film, and can be somewhat disturbing for some. Of course, it doesn't deal with anything supernatural. No monsters,…

    The Movie Sleuth takes a brief journey through the works of ground breaking writer and director, Darren Aronofsky.Anxiety, despair and obsession drive the films of writer-director Darren Aronofsky.  Considered by many to be Stanley Kubrick’s successor, the Jewish American filmmaker is one of modern cinema’s most uncompromising visionaries, his films ready to dive deep into the abyss of his protagonist’s psyche with impeccable audiovisual techniques and raw emotions from his cast.  Frequently working with the same collaborators such as cinematographer Matthew Libatique and…

    Mr. Kotwicki reviews two of the most disturbing movies of the last decade.In the new millennia of exploitation horror films and the built-in audience with it, two films would emerge from the Balkans which would shake the genre to its very foundations and violently divide audiences forever.  You can meet any gore-hound, any exploitation cinema fan of movies that freely mix porn and grindhouse sleaze, and the moment you mention Serbia, you are judged for crossing an unspoken line. What is it that makes a film like Cannibal Holocaust a classic in the genre and something like A Serbian Film…

How did that fit?Those shoes are way too small."I am not embarrassed to admit I enjoy watching pornography from time to time and I especially love the more outlandish movies that have cropped up over the years. Sex and Zenis one such film; combining soft-core sex with high-flying Wuxia style scenes and hilarious comedic hi-jinx. It’s been classified as a Hong Kong Category III film, which equates to a NC-17 rating here in the states. Cat III films are notorious for having explicit sex and gore and they are usually…

  • Devil’s Tower (2014) Movie Review

    James Mudge
    12 Sep 2014 | 8:28 am
    Brit horror “Devil’s Tower” might not have the most original name or premise, revolving around sinister goings on in a shabby housing estate tower block, though it does at least have a pretty interesting cast, led by actress Roxanne Pallett, best known for her work on popular UK countryside soap “Emmerdale” and Jason Mewes of “Jay and Silent Bob” fame. Directed by Owen Tooth and written by Adam J. Marsh, the film follows the recent trend of combining urban decay and grounded anxieties with the supernatural, throwing in some oddball comedy and nudity for good measure. The tower…

    Previously reported as a reboot of the franchise, it now looks like the “Underworld” series will just continue on with a new lead. Theo James, who last battled humanity and werewolves at the same time when he played a vampire named David in “Underworld: Awakening” (the fourth in the series) will reprise his character in the new movie, taking over as the lead from Kate Beckinsale, whose Selene was at the center of the “Underworld” universe for three out of its four movies.

  • Evil Feed (2013) Movie Review

    James Mudge
    5 Sep 2014 | 8:55 am
    It doesn’t take much effort to guess what’s on the menu in “Evil Feed”, an over the top cannibal gore comedy-martial arts hybrid directed by stuntman and stunt co-ordinator Kimani Ray Smith, known for his work on the likes of “Watchmen”, “X-Men”, and other Hollywood blockbusters. Having made the short “Suffer” back in 2011, the film marks Smith’s feature debut, and sees him going the full-on splatter route with a bloody tale that really lets the red stuff fly while packing in plenty of low-brow humour and cheap titillation, all in the worst possible taste.

When did Middle Town America started liking zombie shows? I remember the old days when the only thing zombie-related you could get was a low-budget horror movie some kids shot in their back yards with their pals. Now they’re all over TV. Go figure. Anyhoos. Here are two handful of new images from the upcoming Season 5 of “The Walking Dead.” From the looks of it,…

  • Why You Shouldn’t Watch Movie Trailers

    Alistair Ryder
    11 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    In this internet savvy age, successfully avoiding spoilers for movies and TV shows is a talent we all wish we had. All it takes is a brief glance at Twitter after an opening day or a TV air-date to find that what you’ve been waiting to watch for ages has been spoiled before you’ve even been granted a chance to watch it. Yet these overly enthusiastic tweeters aren’t exactly the biggest threat to my enjoyment of a film, even if they do deserve a slap across the face for making me enjoy it far less; the biggest threat is the trailers for the films themselves, which…

So yeah, August has been hectic, to say the least! This is also exactly the reason why we’re a tiny bit late publishing this article. But, it’s as they say: rather late, than never!

  • 10 “Original” Remakes

    Alexander Miller
    4 Sep 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Since the market is so flooded with remakes and reboots it can be difficult to sift through the titles to find original material. Sometimes a film can take on new life with a modern makeover. Brian DePalama‘s Scarface is a good example. Howard Hawks’ 1932 original indeed is an expertly made classic, but I’m sure more people remember Al Pacino yelling “Say hello to my little friend!” than anything else. What makes a remake good or bad? Other pictures carry on without people knowing it was inspired by another film. When someone asks if you like a movie a lot of the…

    Mortdecai is the story of an art dealer searching for a lost painting that links to a bank account full of Nazi gold. It stars Johnny Depp as Charles Mortdecai with exceptional support from the likes of Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn (Magic Mike). David Koepp (Premium Rush), known mostly for his screenwriting credits, helms the director’s seat for this film. So, I was looking over the comments section on YouTube and stumbled upon the perfect description for the trailer: Goofy Gatsby. I’ll be honest here, there is absolutely no indication of the plot mentioned above. The trailer…

  • Movie Review: Love Is Strange (2014)

    12 Sep 2014 | 7:41 am
    by Tony Dayoub Sweet, sincere and romantic, if ever there were an LGBT-themed film with crossover potential Love Is Strange would be a prime candidate. Sure, there has been Brokeback Mountain, Milk, The Kids Are Alright and any number of other ones that have struck a chord with audiences, particularly in the arthouse circuit. But there is something sweeping about Ira Sachs' Love Is Strange, something to which everyone in a deep, committed relationship can relate to without the movie betraying its own identity to pander to a straight audience. While "betray" may be too strong a word to use…

    10 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Michaël R. Roskam's The Drop doesn't exactly venture into new territory. Its story places two small-scale hustlers, Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) and his cousin, known to all as Cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), at the center of a treacherous and complicated scheme right out of Noir 101. Now owned by Chechen mobsters, the eponymous Cousin Marv's Bar is robbed by two dim assailants on the night it happens to be the assigned drop bar receiving all of the Chechens' protection money collected at other bars. This instantly puts Bob and Cousin Marv in hot water with the bar's deadly…
  • TV Review: Sons of Anarchy: Season Seven

    5 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    by Tony Dayoub If the first few episodes of Sons of Anarchy's final season are any indication, then the series is going down in the same manner it started: as a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions, with the eponymous motorcycle club's royal family and their dysfunctional dynamics at the heart of what ails its crown prince. Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is as dark and vengeful this season as he was bright and optimistic just before his wife Tara's shocking demise. SAMCRO is licking their wounds while preparing to once again make their ascendance in their town of Charming. And Jax's mother, Gemma…

But I see unity in that chaos. There's a team here coming together to save someone's life." It's a flabbergasting statement to say the least. But as Code Black unfolds we learn that this is no ordinary emergency room. It's C-Booth, a cramped, very public space in LA County Hospital that has…

    by Tony Dayoub The year's best home releases usually fill that gap between the theatrical blockbuster season and that of awards hopefuls. Here are three worth your time. All That Jazz 1979's All That Jazz represents the apex of musical (black) comedy thanks to the creative force behind it, writer-director-choreographer Bob Fosse. Roy Scheider gets his finest role ever as Joe Gideon, Fosse's alter ego in all but name. Fosse somehow manages to highlight the most charming aspects of this egotistical, driven, drug-addicted womanizer by way of Scheider's tender interactions with the various women…

One tweet stood out as they were reaching out to us for support of their horror film. We simply replied back and asked to see a trailer as we always like to see the films that we promote first. He replied back immediately and sent us the link. Now keep in mind we have spent all day watching submissions, that were in the end disappointing to say the least.

If you’ve asked yourself this question before, then you’ve probably followed up with the, “Will I still be alive to witness it,” question.

  • Forrest Gump

    10 Sep 2014 | 7:54 pm
    Forrest Gump     In the vast world of cinema, there are pictures that are built to bring us joy for just a fleeting period of our existence. Their run is often short lived and becomes nothing more than a grain of sand in the hourglass of time. On the contrary, are films that are constructed to endure. To remain in our consciousness, even if thousands of pictures are released henceforth. "Forrest Gump" is undeniably categorized with the latter.    As this film justifiably receives its twentieth anniversary release and an IMAX treatment, we are transported to a realm of…
  • The Land Before Time

    3 Sep 2014 | 2:57 pm
    The Land Before Time ★1/2    Hand drawn animated film's golden years have most certainly passed. Their days of arousing excitement from audiences young and old are just a glimpse in the eye of today's film industry. Computer generated imaging has essentially placed hand drawn animation into a stranglehold that kindles the term "obsolete."    Nevertheless, there was a time when technology did not influence the entire production of a picture. A time when passion and ingenious storytelling overwhelmed the ideals of advertisement and  quick development. "The…

    26 Aug 2014 | 1:26 pm
    Pathfinder      "Pathfinder" is a 2007 plot oriented film that begins with a rather illogical and bold declaration. It is learned that six hundred years before Christopher Columbus stumbled upon North America, a dastardly group of vikings came to shore, hellbent on slaying the native culture to purify the land and claim home. This picture is the story of one man, who rose to the occasion and fulfilled the prophecy that would save a civilization.     A moment of history, that if recorded, would become an indelible and heartwarming memory.  …

    Firewall    Bank security is an onerous profession. Of course, I am not referring to the tangible security in the form of a guard or officer of the law. For the twenty-first century has evolved the bureaucracy of the banking world to a virtual level of existence, featuring the utilization of wire transfers and mobile transactions. How did we ever conduct our banking needs without technology?   "Firewall" is a 2006 thriller that incorporates this cyber technology into the age old deed of bank robbery. Harrison Ford, an exceptional veteran actor who remains engaged…

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles      In the realm of film viewing there are three easily distinguishable types of spectators. There are individuals who savor movies purely for their entertainment value, the diminutive amount of souls who still deem film to be an art form, and the medial folks whose position lies somewhere in between these categories. Alas, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is a 2014 picture that gives rise to a timeless dispute that pits recreation versus fine art.     Regardless of the rationale that will send people to the steering wheel of…
