  • Short Films in Focus: Ramin Bahrani’s “Lift You Up”

    6 Jul 2015 | 6:49 am
    A person's philosophy of life tells their story. "You are what you give," says Glyn Stewart in Ramin Bahrani's documentary short “Lift You Up.” "If you don't give nothing, you don't get nothing." Glyn's story is about giving. He has had several heart attacks and that has changed his philosophy and outlook on life, but in his heart of hearts, he has always been a giver. He has worked in hospice care with his deceased girlfriend of 15 years, dressing up as clowns and trying to put smiles on people's faces. Now, he works as an egg inspector. The eggs get used to help feed the hungry.

He started a family and returned to the U.S. After some years, he left his wife, married another woman and now realizes that he's bored with the United States. His reasons are understandable: becoming accustomed to travel, experiencing different cultures and having to put up with those damn politicians, man.

There she is in grainy home-video footage with her female chums with a smattering of adolescent acne on her fresh face, innocently sucking on a lollipop and throatily belting out the sing-song refrain of “Happy Birthday” as if she were possessed by the spirit of an ancient R&B diva.  This is the Amy Winehouse few of us ever got to witness, radiating cheeky self-confidence and finding joy in sharing her considerable gifts.

  • Is Raven-Symoné’s ‘View’ Hiring a Stroke of Genius TV Programming or Just Shameless Social Clickbait?

    Matt Donnelly
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:30 am
    After a polarizing start to her official co-host gig on “The View,” Raven-Symoné raises questions about ABC’s motives to install the former child actor as a panelists and how she truly relates to wide audiences. The 29-year-old was initially touted as a funky show business vet (she got her start at 3 years old on “The Cosby Show”) bringing a millennial perspective to the existing cast of Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Nicolle Wallace. Yet since her debut, and on dozens of guest stints prior to landing the job, she has mostly enjoyed attention for her contrary,…

While the ABC game show bested “Big Brother” in total viewers at 9 p.m., the demo rating order was reversed for the hour. Like “Celebrity Family Feud,” “Big Brother” and “Battle Bots” also slipped by double digits in the main demo.

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:09 am
    HBO Since the final moments of season five, Game of Thrones fans have been locked inside a cacophony of speculation and fan theories about whether or not Jon Snow is really dead. The driving force behind a lot of this speculation was the fact that book readers have been piecing together various theories since the release of George R.R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons book in 2011. It didn’t help that both the GoT producers and actor Kit Harington went on a publicity barrage immediately after the season finale with a solitary message: he’s dead and gone and never coming…

It’s not clear how the previously announced remake of Cujo will go, but it doesn’t sound like something that will be hitting the big screen in a big way.

    HBO Well, Ray Velcoro is still alive. I’m not convinced that True Detective will be better for it. Don’t get me wrong – I’m a big fan of both Farrell the actor and Velcoro the character, so from that perspective, I’m happy that True Detective will give more more of what I like going forward. What worries me, though, is the power dynamic this reveals. There were times during the first season of True Detective that the show took on the personality of a college freshman, sharing pieces of philosophical theory simply because they sounded good at parties. What made it…

Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for The Cell.

She’s quickly becoming Walter White. Jenji Kohan and the show’s other writers clearly recognize this (they even added a swift jab evoking Heisenberg’s name when mocking Piper’s wonky new prison tattoo). They’ve also set…

  • How To Be More Like Frida Kahlo, As Told By Frida Kahlo

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:52 am
    Let’s face it: We all wish we could be Frida Kahlo. She was a feminist before her time, incorporated indigenous and national Mexican symbols into her art with complete authenticity, and kept up a passionate -- if explosive -- romance with Diego Rivera. Her self-portraits are incomparable, as were her spirited, self-aware quotes. There’s nothing like a great artist’s birthday to make us feel like insecure about our accomplishments. Brilliant writers and painters may be inspirational, but they also make us wonder how we could ever ascend to their godly heights. Luckily, Kahlo was never…

  • Chew on This: The Case for Gum's Brain-Boosting Abilities

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:49 am
    For such a seemingly innocent substance, gum has a lot of enemies. Parochial school teachers have notoriously handed out demerits for chomping on the elastic breath-freshener. And then consider Singapore, where a 25-year-old ban means “therapeutic” gum — prescribed and sold by doctors — is the only option for would-be chewers. Gum and the war against it have ancient origins. It’s believed that Europeans were chewing birch bark tar 9,000 years ago; Mayans chomped on naturally elastic chicle (a kind of tree sap) to quench thirst and combat hunger. Gum has gotten…

We're given a glimpse of  Phylicia Rashad as Mary Anne Creed and Tessa Thompson as Bianca. The best moment of the trailer comes when Adonis…

  • 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

    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.

  • Adobe Morph Cut vs Avid Fluid Morph – Jump Cut Test

    Joey Daoud
    24 Jun 2015 | 3:04 pm
    Adobe just released a slew of updates across the board for their Creative Cloud apps. One of the big ones in Premiere that I’ve been looking forward to for a while is the Morph Cut transition. This transition is designed to stitch together a jump cut in an interview to mask the cut. Well, that’s the idea at least. The only thing similar to this that existed before is Avid’s Fluid Morph in Media Composer. Fluid Morph works really, really well. So well that I downloaded the trial of Media Composer to clean up some jump cuts from Dolphin Lover, then export them back to FCPX.

    This year was my second time at NAB, covering new gear for Filmmaker Magazine. I can’t say there was anything that completely blew me away, but there was some new gear and tools that definitely piqued my interest and looked quite useful for the future. Solo Smart Drone One thing there was no shortage of at NAB was drones. But 3DR caused a big splash with their new Solo drone. Unlike DJI, 3DR is sticking with GoPros as the camera instead of making their own, and the Solo offers full control over all GoPro settings while flying. But what really stands out with Solo is the amount of…

    A few weeks ago I wrote about all the press Dolphin Lover was receiving (which for a quick backstory is a short documentary Kareem Tabsch and I made that premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival). The pinnacle was getting an entire riff on @midnight and Mazel of the Day from Andy Cohen. Post by @midnight. But the buzz has slowed down, so here’s a look at the things Kareem and I learned, what could be done better, and how we totally messed up so you don’t have to make the same mistakes we did. But first a preface. The doc obviously has a sensational logline ripe for tabloids…

    If you told me a year ago that I’d be running, boxing, and doing CrossFit, I’d have thought you were slightly nuts, especially the running part. The only history I have with sports and fitness is the PE class I took online for high school. However I had been feeling low energy, mentally foggy, and when I was on shoots I’d get sharp muscle pain in my arm from holding the camera rig. I was doing a lot more post work than before, so lots of sitting was involved (which is quite hazardous). I knew I needed to get more active, both for health and to be more functional. So I…

  • See Laurent Durieux's Stunning 2015 Telluride Film Festival Poster

    Alex Billington
    5 Jul 2015 | 7:33 pm
    Wow. I have to admit, I kinda love this poster. But maybe that's because I have a deep appreciation and love for the Telluride Film Festival, occurring every Labor Day weekend in the remarkably beautiful town of Telluride, Colorado. This year the festival chose Belgian artist Laurent Durieux as the official poster artist of the 2015 festival, and his design is now out. Durieux is one of my favorite artists already - we've featured his work plenty before on the site (The Godfather: Part I & II, It's a Wonderful Life, or Back to the Future Part II). He really captures the vibe of the…

    This looks like it's going to be incredible. The first teaser trailer for one of the big hits of this year's Cannes Film Festival has arrived online. It's a short teaser for Hou Hsiao-hsien's The Assassin, starring Shu Qi, showing a few of scenes without any subtitles or voiceover, but it still looks stunning. The film received rave reviews during the festival and was considered a top contender for the Palme d'Or, but ended up with Best Director. Shu Qi plays "the assassin", with a cast featuring Chang Chen and Satoshi Tsumabuki. A slave to the orders of her mistress, Nie Yinniang must…

    The other day I went to see Pixar's Inside Out in theaters. I live in New York City and went to the big 42nd Street AMC Theatres, where I could catch a 2D showing at the right time. Before the movie began, after all of the previews but just before the short film, they included a message from the film's director, Pete Docter (seen above). I'm not sure if this message is included on all copies/prints of Inside Out, or just certain ones, or in certain places, but I assume it's probably playing everywhere. It's just a short "Thank you" message, pointing out that tons of people put a lot of work…

With only a few weeks left until the official release of the movie, Marvel has debuted on more trailer via Marvel UK for Peyton Reed's Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. This is a much more energetic, action-packed trailer than usual, cutting between action scenes and some of the fun dialogue. They even toss in that Avengers reference I included at the beginning, and I like the music. Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, and Judy Greer also co-star.

    Pixar has two films in theaters in 2015, which really means the studio has four films: two features, and two shorts. November 25 sees the release of The Good Dinosaur, which will be preceded by the short Sanjay’s Super Team. We’ve seen some concept art from the short (such as the image above), created by Pixar Animation Studios artist Sanjay Patel. Inspired by Patel’s own experience, the short features a boy who is more interested in cartoons than his family’s religious practices, but who ultimately envisions the Hindu gods Hanuman, Durga, and Vishnu, as a sort of…

    6 Jul 2015 | 10:01 am
    No one in sound mind and body wants to die, and that includes Ben Kingsley in the new film by Tarsem Singh. The director made his feature debut with the visually-striking The Cell in 2000, which raised expectations for bizarre and ambitious The Fall (2006), which was also sumptuous in appearance, if narratively lacking. Since then, he has made Immortals (reviewed here) and Mirror Mirror (reviewed here), two films that continued to demonstrate his preference (and reliance) for imagery and motion over story and sense. As far as the visuals are concerned, Self/Less represents the director's most…

  • ANTIGANG: Jean Reno Anchors New French Action Comedy. Watch The Trailer!

    6 Jul 2015 | 8:30 am
    Throughout his long career, iconic French star Jean Reno's films have tended to fall into one of two camps. On the one side - the side that tends to export the most and be most seen by foreign audiences - there are his serious action pieces, films that capitalize on the success of Luc Besson's Leon: The Professional with Reno as an often violent antihero. And on the other side - the side that really pays the bills back in France - Reno is a highly sought after comedic lead. The two sides of Reno seldom meet but director Benjamin Rocher looks to be delivering the comedic and the action…

    Welcome to Me is the indie gem of the year already, and despite starring Kristen Wiig, not nearly enough people are talking about it… or are aware it exists. Wiig stars as Alice Klieg, a psychiatric patient who could not be more in need of her meds, but quits taking them. When she does, her days are spent in something like a fugue of self-obsession and rigid routine. She’s addicted to Oprah, almost oblivious to the existence of other people as beings in their own right, and socially inept in a sense that could make the turn of phrase a devastating insult to others. When Alice wins…

    The Astronaut Wives Club is another risky effort in period drama that sounds great on paper. This is a sub-genre that is hard to get away from, because the theory not only makes for something easy to pitch, but really should be able to deliver. Much like recent efforts Pan Am and The Playboy Club, if someone came to you with a synopsis and even a marginal cast, it would be difficult to turn up your nose. There’s something about showcasing an era by way of some particular note that solidly represents a strong force within it. All three shows, based on their trailers, just ooze a feeling…

    Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants, based on/built from the TV show – Minuscule – The Private Lives of Insects, is not just an animated adventure, but a kind of artistic experiment. It’s a story told visually, with no dialog beyond the hoots and squeaks of ladybugs and ants, which makes it a challenging experiment already, but it is also an experiment of form, structure, and thematic content. It’s an effort that ultimately betrays the European sensibilities responsible for it. A ladybug gets separated from her family, and finds herself in a lunchbox that a group of…

It may have worked out that despite somewhat surprising success, the show remains a bit niche, but Greg Poehler won me over pretty quickly. Based on Greg’s real experiences living in Sweden, the show is a charmingly-envisioned culture clash that wonderfully avoids…

    Gone With the Wind is that rare case where its desire for ‘grandeur’ trickles down successfully through every aspect of production. From Selznick’s madness for control, the obscene four-hour running time, Max Steiner's memorable score, the film’s massive production elements, even down to Scarlett O’Hara’s character grand character arc, the film continually leaps over the audiences’ high expectations, which with much room to spare.

Andrew Bovell, who wrote the screenplay for the American version of Edge of Darkness, also wrote an early draft of Strictly Ballroom, no offence to Bovell, but it would take a lot to follow in the footsteps of Tomas Alfredson's script and those two titles aren't really nailing it for me.

    I watched We Are Monster at the start of my first day at the Edinburgh International Film Festival 2014, and it set the day off to a dark and troubled start. Not because the film was bad, but because of the subject matter and the way the story is told. When people say a film is tough, they mean what they say. The language, intent and ideals of the lead character are, at times, difficult to watch, the incompetence of the authority figures is depressing, and the fact that this is all based on a true story is truly shocking....Visit Filmstalker for the full story.

Unless JW has another phenomenal Saturday/Sunday Inside Out will finally make it to #1 on the box-office chart, three weeks after its r...
  • 'Magic Mike' and 'Genisys' Neck and Neck...for Now.

    30 Jun 2015 | 7:34 pm
    The numbers are in for Tuesday and Magic Mike XXL leads Terminator Genisys, with the Channing Tatum film taking in $2.4M versus $2.3M for the Schwarzenegger reboot. Mike, with mildly positive reviews, would seem poised to take the weekend versus the poorly received latest Terminator. Paramount, however, is reporting that Genisys is actually on 3,758 screens, a much wider count than the 3,600 earlier reported, which upends the conventional thinking. Neither film is being embraced by ear...

    The Fourth of July weekend looks to be filled with full multiplexes as Magic Mike XXL and Terminator Genisys open tomorrow (Weds, 7/1), joining Jurassic World, Inside Out and Ted 2 in a battle royale for eyeballs and bottoms. Available screens are something to consider as Warner Bros.' Mike will be in a reported 3,355 venues and Paramount's Genisys in 3,758. Pundits are plugging for both films to earn $50M for the five-day frame. That puts Mike earning around the $39.1M its predece...

    Movie Reviews

  • A modern spin through Frankenstein-style clone zone

    By Walter Addiego
    2 Jul 2015 | 12:18 pm
    “Closer to God” is a decently made old-school horror film that puts a modern spin on one of the genre’s most venerable themes, the creation of a human life in a laboratory. Writer-director Billy Senese certainly isn’t trying to hide the film’s roots in Mary Shelley’s novel, “Frankenstein”: The central character’s first name is Victor (as in the book), and a major secondary figure is called Mary. Horror aficionados will also notice some movie references, including to David Cronenberg’s “The Brood” and Larry Cohen’s “It’s Alive.” Dr. Victor Reed (Jeremy Childs…
  • ‘In Stereo’: Romantic dramedy is a bit unsound

    By David Lewis
    1 Jul 2015 | 11:00 pm
    “In Stereo” is a romantic dramedy in which a broken-up couple, David and Brenda, spend much of the film in separate universes of self-involvement. There’s a germ of a good idea here, but it would have been nice to have a “David and Brenda” section at the front end, or least a more substantial preamble, so that we got more invested in this couple. Perhaps director Mel Rodriguez is trying to make us feel the confusion and disorientation of these New Yorkers as they struggle in a world where a romantic connection is getting harder to find. Whatever he’s doing, we can’t help but…
  • Viewers avoiding Mideast war movies

    By Michael Ordoña
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:12 pm
    The expertly made “The Hurt Locker” is the lowest-grossing best picture Oscar winner on record. For every action film featuring elite warriors, such as “Zero Dark Thirty” ($132 million and a ton of painful controversy) or “Lone Survivor” (more than tripled its budget with nearly $150 million despite its horrific true story), there is a boatload of bombs — “War, Inc.,” “The Messenger,” “Stop-Loss,” “The Green Zone” ($11 million average). Did “Sniper” make Iraq/Afghanistan movies with nuanced messages safe for audiences? Or was its blend of heroics with a…
  • DVD review: ‘New Tricks’ with updated cast

    By John Stanley
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:11 pm
    Based on the premise “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” this British TV series was once the most watched there. [...] things have changed, and the old Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad will soon be headed toward its final days. Season 11 features three replacement characters (introduced over the past two seasons as the old-timers left, one by one) who have taken on new dramatic strength in the 10 episodes in this set. The new female squad leader (Tamzin Outhwaite, replacing Amanda Redman) has an inner fire that enables her to fight back against superiors she doesn’t agree with,…
  • DVD review: Midler does Joplin, sort of

    By Mick LaSalle
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:11 pm
    Bette Midler was offered the role and turned it down, and rather than find another actress, the producers decided to change the story and make the film about somebody like Janis Joplin, but also a lot like Better Midler. [...] that’s how Midler approaches the musical sections here: Released in 1979, this remains a very good movie. Midler is terrific — dynamic, flashy, needy, vital, lovable and pathetic. Midler, in her later career, had a tendency to get maudlin, at least when she wasn’t being hysterically funny (as in “Ruthless People”). RATED R

    A new film adaptation of Gustave Flaubert’s French classic Madame Bovary, starring Mia Wasikowska and Ezra Miller, has just been released. Considered to be one of the great masterpieces of 19th century literature, Madame Bovary tells the tragic story of Emma Rouault, whose unhappy provincial marriage leads her into two adulterous affairs — first with the young and intelligent Léon and then with the dashing and seductive Rodolphe. The tragic story has been told and retold in a number of adaptations since the text’s original publication in 1856 in serial form. But what differences…
  • Echoes of caste slavery in Dalit Christian practices

    Alice
    6 Jul 2015 | 1:30 am
    In the mid-twentieth century Dalit migration from the villages of southern princely State of Travancore to the villages in the Western Ghats hills in the north was reminiscent of Exodus, although we are yet to have substantial narratives of the difficult journeys they undertook. In the new villages in the British Malabar where they settled down, they could own small pieces of land and become marginal farmers. One of the surprising things is that majority of the Dalit migrants from Kerala were Dalit Christians. It is worth speculating if the story of Exodus had anything to do with their…
  • Lies, truth, and meaning

    RachelM
    6 Jul 2015 | 12:30 am
    Words have meaning. We use them to communicate to one another, and what we communicate depends, in part, on which words we use. What words mean varies from language to language. In many cases, we can communicate the same thing in different languages, but require different words to do so. And conversely, sometimes the very same words communicate different things in different languages. In Estonian, I am told, a zealous germophobe would enjoin us to join her in cleaning the rooms by saying ‘Koristame ruumit!’ But she should take care in expressing this enthusiasm in Finland, for in Finnish…

    Wimbledon has started, the barbeques have been dusted off, the sun is shining, and all our newly elected MPs will soon be leaving Westminster for the summer recess. Domestic politics, to some extent, winds down for July and August but the nation never seems to collapse. Indeed, the summer months offer a quite different focus on, for example, a frenzy of festivals and picnics in the park. But could this more relaxed approach to life teach us something about how we ‘do’ politics? Is politics really taking place at festivals and in the parks? Can politics really be fun?

    5 Jul 2015 | 3:44 am
    DB here: The Teatro Comunale of Bologna is an eighteenth-century opera house that was launched by a premier of a work by Glück. It has hosted massive productions of Wagner, Rossini, and Verdi, and was a favorite venue of Toscanini’s. Elegant and imposing, with box seats and an orchestra pit, it makes you feel like you’re in Senso or Liebelei. In some years Cinema Ritrovato has secured the Teatro for gala screenings of silent films, complete with orchestral accompaniment. One show of Lady Windermere’s Fan was a delight. In another year, the hammering Meisel score for The…

    Kristin here- David and I are in Bologna for Il Cinema Ritrovato. Once again there is an overwhelming choice of films on offer, demanding a patient acceptance of the fact that one cannot possibly see anything close to everything one wishes. Careful planning can only do so much. If there is anything I have learned from the films in the first half of the festival, it is that one should not leave home. In the earliest surviving Mizoguchi Kenji film, The Song of Home (1925), a talented but impoverished young man accepts the idea that staying in his village is best for both himself and Japan.

  • Maggie (2015) Movie Review (2.5/4 Stars)

    5 Jul 2015 | 1:31 pm
    Maggie is possibly the most introspective zombie movie out there. Most films about zombies are about killing them - or surviving them - but zombies are usually highly featured. In Maggie, you see very few zombies and it's really about a father and daughter - their relationship and coping with what is a certain death. Arnold Schwarzeneggar is the father and despite being one of the biggest acti... read more

    'Terminator: Genisys' cleans house on the mythology of the series and hits reset. I was hesitant going into this movie for that reason. I still kept an open mind because there are many cool things you can do with time travel plots. The possibilities are endless. Well, this movie has and endless amount of IMpossible situations.

Now looking back on the first Ted movie I got say I changed my mind on it a bit and what I mean is that it wasn't as great as I remembered it to be, but I still think it's d... read more
  • Ted 2 Movie Review (1/4 Stars)

    29 Jun 2015 | 2:33 am
    'Ted 2' is a lazy sequel. There's a bland 'same-ness' to this whole endeavor. I was not a fan of the first 'Ted'. I felt it was a solid premise that had too many flat gags. Yet, I still had a few good laughs with it. This sequel is a repeat of that, but with a weaker story construct and even weaker jokes. I criticized 'Ted' for being too similar to an episode of the very uneven 'Family Guy... read more

    Artist: The Unravelling; Vocals/Lyrics-Steve Moore, and Instruments/Music-Gustavo de Beauville Single: Master Drone Production: Gustavo de Beauville The continuously developing visceral emotions that are meant to comfort people during times of self-defined evolutions in society can often times make those who have persistently been certain of their reality instead see their lives begin to gradually unravel.

    Fearlessly and determinedly fighting for your beliefs, both physically and emotionally, can be a powerful advantage to achieving your goals, especially in a world that’s dominated by ruthless competitors. But that process is even more gratifying when a courageous woman daringly combats the influential men who stand in her way of obtaining her ambitions.

    Finding the courage to survive in an endlessly frustrating society that you no longer understand, and ultimately suppressing the desire to just give up hope in the seemingly cruel world, is often a difficult process for anyone to undergo. But attempting to endure life’s challenges is even more strenuous when people are forced to struggle between either following their own faith, or doing whatever’s necessary to protect their family, who disappointingly may not share the same beliefs. Ethan Embry’s upstanding character, Seamus Riley, in the thriller ‘Echoes of…

    Can Shark Week really restore its good name after jumping the shark?

    6 Jul 2015 | 8:30 am
    The eternal importance of caring for our physical bodies. What do we do with the body? This isn’t a line from Dexter. It's no part of a murder mystery plot. This is a question about us. We all have bodies. They are the way we are present to each other, the way we show up in the world. But at the same time, we have a sense of some unbodily part of ourselves—a soul, a spirit, something inside and different from our skin.

    A new survey from Lifeway Research has found that 53 percent of Americans believe that “God and the nation have a special relationship.” And, despite political bickering in the media, the recent economic downturn and overseas conflicts, just four in 10 Americans actually think that “America’s best days are behind us.” The concepts of American Exceptionalism and Manifest Destiny are nothing new. As Lifeway’s executive director Ed Stetzer points out in the research, the ideas have long been part of American thinking. God Bless America is more than a song or a prayer for many…

  • Review: Jurassic World

    Dave Taylor
    11 Jun 2015 | 8:22 am
    It’s impossible to talk about dinosaur movies without mentioning the ground-breaking 1993 film Jurassic Park, a fun, exciting summer blockbuster about a mad scientist who extracts dinosaur DNA from mosquitoes trapped in amber and then creates a theme park around the resurrected beasts. Based on one of the many books written by the remarkably prolific Michael Crichton, it remains one of director Steven Spielberg’s best movies. Two decades after the Park’s disastrous shutdown, a new dinosaur-themed amusement park called Jurassic World has opened up on Isla Nublar, funded…

    4 Jun 2015 | 11:01 pm
    With the phenomenal success of the James Bond franchise – 23 films and counting – it’s no surprise that suave, debonair spies are fruitful ground for satire and parody. Starting almost with the first 007 movie, filmmakers have found cheap laughs and wry social commentary an easy mix, whether it’s James Coburn as Derek Flint, Dean Martin as Matt Helm, Mike Myers as Austin Powers or the 70’s TV series Get Smart and its entertaining 2008 cinematic film of the same name. Heck, the last few Roger Moore Bond films approached satire themselves. It’s no surprise…
  • Review: San Andreas

    Dave Taylor
    29 May 2015 | 8:52 am
    Earthquakes are scary things, and the Western US is on the edge of tectonic plates, so every so often there’s a pressure build-up and slip that causes either a little jiggle in the earth or a major quake like the Northridge quake in the mid 90’s or the Loma Prieta quake in San Francisco back in 1989. Cinema loves disasters because they force the drama. Rescues! Peril! Families Torn Apart! Explosions! Fires! So it’s no wonder that San Andreas picks up the mantel of disaster movies by postulating a massive series of earthquakes that start in the Las Vegas area, move down to…
  • Review: Tomorrowland

    Dave Taylor
    21 May 2015 | 11:01 pm
    My daughter and I watch a lot of old movies. The previous era of cinema appeals to us is because of the underlying optimism and the comfort in knowing that the bad guy will get their comeuppance and the good guys will overcome, the proverbial happy ending. Life isn’t quite so graceful, unfortunately, but part of the draw is that older films offer a happier, more optimistic world. By contrast, modern cinema seems to often lack a moral compass and while this ambiguity can sometimes lead to great movies like The Usual Suspects, other times it produces films that celebrate the bad guy.

    If you’ve seen the extraordinary sci-fi / horror thriller Alien then you’ve encountered the world of surrealist artist H. R. Giger. In fact, he was part of the team that won an Academy Award for Best Achievement in Visual Effects for their work on the film. Sadly, Giger passed away a year ago, leaving a massive legacy of weird, twisted, surreal paintings, lithographs and sculpture both at his bizarre house in Zurich, Switzerland and at museums and galleries throughout the world.

  • “Inside Out” and the Art of Looking Outward

    Naomi Etienne
    28 Jun 2015 | 6:50 pm
    As one of the bigger Summer blockbusters of the year, Disney’s “Inside Out”, has come through with great success and acts as yet another testament to Disney’s trusty handiwork in great films. For this film in particular, it isn’t hard to see the creativity and ingenuity of creators and animators associated with “Inside Out”. The term ‘thinking outside of the box’ is exactly the phrase to describe the idea of the film. Even though thinking outside the box literally means taking a look inside the mind with characters as human emotions, it is a different take on how to look at…
  • Jurassic World’s Dinosaurs Cgi or Not?

    Prem
    22 Jun 2015 | 7:28 pm
    One of the main issues I personally had with the film is the mediocre CGI. It wasn’t well polished and on IMAX screens, one could easily spot the bad CGI especially on human characters. Take a look at Chris Pratt in the photo below. The human beings lacked character and emotion simply because most of the time they probably were in front of a green screen. The Dinosaurs on the other hand looked very life-like and were very believable. I think most of the money was spent on making the dinosaurs look very real that they forgot that humans were also part of the screen. The rendering on some…

    I first saw this film back when it hit theaters in 2009, and it continues to give me the creeps to this day. I am normally not one for suspenseful and frightening dramas that involve serial killers and young girls—or any scary films involving anything remotely horrifying. Yes, I am a wimp, but moving on. The fact that makes this movie something worth watching and interesting, is the actor Stanley Tucci who plays George Harvey or as he is more commonly known in the film—Mr. Harvey. Tucci completely changes in this film from his normal comedic routine in other films you may have seen him…

    30 May 2015 | 9:18 am
    Romantic Bollywood films can either be really well done or downright cheesy, but one thing you can always count on is to be entertained despite the outcome. Most of the time there isn’t any deep underlining message that needs to be discovered, but rather, messages that float on the surface and are easy enough for anyone to pick up on. That’s also the beauty of Bollywood; we can enjoy it, laugh, sing along (or try horribly), and still understand what is going on with the story. Anurag Basu’s 2010 film, Kites, takes somewhat more of a dramatic turn, and in a depressing way. However, that…

    Although American Sniper came out in January this year, thinking about it still gives me chills. The fact that it is a true story, and reflects on one of the many great servicemen in our military, makes it feel as if you are tied to it in a way. It is a story that is happening now, and one that still strikes me to the core. Because of this film, I have never felt more appreciative of the people who do put their lives at risk to keep us safe. I don’t think there could have been a better cast or director to make this film come to fruition. Clint Eastwood directed the story flawlessly, and did…

    Sandy Schaefer
    6 Jul 2015 | 6:58 am
    Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror film Crimson Peak was featured in a big way at the 2014 Comic-Con International, so it’s appropriate that the movie will be returning to the San Diego Comic-Con in 2015, ahead of its bow in theaters. Legendary Pictures’ SDCC 2015 panel will highlight the film with the other upcoming Legendary tentpoles (like Warcraft), though it’s likely that Crimson Peak will have a presence in the convention showroom much like it did in 2014 (and other del Toro projects, such as Pacific Rim, have at the Comic-Con Internationals past).

After all, a superhero’s death is a tragedy, but no one cares if one of the bad guys gets killed.

    Even though studio executives and investors hope that their films can achieve widespread appeal and become so-called ‘four quadrant hits’, the nature of the business is that every project is going to have a different target demographic. For something like Pixar’s Inside Out, the hope is families will flock to the theater. A sci-fi film like Jurassic World is going after those who crave big screen spectacle and action. In short, films ranging in scope from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Whiplash all have that one segment they’re specifically made for. That brings…

Once again, the #1 film is Jurassic World, which brought in $43.8 million over the three-day weekend. This puts the sci-fi blockbuster at a whopping $558.1 million domestically, meaning it has eclipsed The Dark Knight and currently ranks as the U.S.’ fourth highest-grossing film ever. Next on that list is The Avengers, and should Jurassic World keeping selling tickets at this pace, it’s only a matter of time before it passes…

    Dan Persons
    19 Jun 2015 | 5:13 am
    No life is forever, not even that of the man who played immortal vampires, mouldering corpses, and psychotic satanists. Christopher Lee had so permanently placed his mark on the world of fantastic film that his death this past week sent a shock wave through film fandom, so assured were we that he’d always be around to bring his wit, gravity, and class to the likes of Dracula, Saruman and Kharis. In the wake of his loss, Cinefantastique contributors Ted Newsom, Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and Dan Persons got together to reminisce about encounters with the legendary actor, share some…
  • Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: JURASSIC WORLD

    Dan Persons
    18 Jun 2015 | 8:24 am
    Seriously critiquing a film that in its first weekend has managed to gross over a half-billion dollars worldwide is not unlike trying to hand-feed a pork chop to a velociraptor — risks are involved. Nevertheless, there are moments in Jurassic World where it’s clear the makers intended something more ambitious than just giving the audience their anticipated, 3D dino rampage, so it only makes sense to dig a bit deeper and determine whether the message transcends its medium. I endeavor to do that in my review for Jim Freund’s Hour of the Wolf; click on the player to hear the…

  • The Status of Love in the Age of Consumerism: An Interview with Jia Zhangke

    Amir Ganjavie
    22 Jun 2015 | 11:38 am
    Jia Zhangke's Mountains May Depart, which premiered in competition in Cannes this year, could be seen as a symbolic representation of the status of romance in the age of consumerism. By focusing on three different time periods in 1999, 2014, and 2025, the director shows how emotions and feelings change and what could be the future of human relationships in the age of consumerism and telecommunication. This film is a utopian project with big ambitions that is never satisfied with itself and its apparently romantic theme. The film moves from one genre to another, one mode to another, and one…

    We weren't sure if Dominic Cooper would be back for the second season of Agent Carter due to the fact that he's such a busy guy these days! He's currently developing the AMC series Preacher, and he has several other projects that he's juggling. Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter) has confirmed that he will indeed be back to reprise his role of Howard Stark, though. It was also revealed last week that James D'Arcy and Enver Gjokaj would be returning as Edwin Jarvis and Agent Daniel Sousa for the series as well.I don't think Stark will have a huge level of involvement, but it will…
  • What If Sean Connery Didn't Turn Down the Role of Gandalf? - Animated Video

    6 Jul 2015 | 8:43 am
    Before Ian McKellen took on the role of Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings films, director Peter Jackson offered the part to Sean Connery, who turned it down. That would have been so weird to see. It's hard to imagine anyone other than McKellen playing the character, but this animated video created by Lee Daniels for Mashed gives us a silly, hyper-exaggerated idea of what Jackson would not have done with the character.

    One of the biggest complaints among fanboys and fangirls about Zack Snyder's Man of Steel was the complete obliteration of Metropolis. Fans of Superman also weren't too thrilled with their favorite character snapping General Zod's neck at the film's climax. Snyder defends his end of the movie though, and in a recent interview with EW he talks about the consequences of what happened and how it affects Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and the rest of the DC cinematic universe. Here's what Snyder had to say:“I was surprised because that’s the thesis of Superman for me, that…

    2 Jul 2015 | 9:01 am
    ***Note: This is a review of Japanese-dubbed version*** When Marnie Was There (2015) marks what could possibly be Studio Ghibli’s final film. That is incredibly saddening if it turns out to be true. The famed Japanese animation studio – most notable for the work of Hayao Miyazaki – has turned out incredible masterworks for decades. In a time where computer animation has nearly replaced the traditional hand-drawn approach, Studio Ghibli has remained a constant presence. The world would be losing an important cinematic voice if they were to cease production permanently. Hiromasa…

    Director Joshua Oppenheimer said he set out to fail* in making The Look of Silence – but in failing, to discover something important about how that failure happened. Really, how could he not disappoint? Silence is the follow-up to his nigh-universally acclaimed, surreal, unnerving The Act of Killing (2013), a personal frontrunner if I had to choose a best film of the last decade. In that documentary, Oppenheimer filmed original perpetrators reenacting Indonesia’s 1965 anti-Communist purges – which left over one million dead – in the form of Hollywood genre cinema. Ensconced as heroes…

    When it comes to writing reviews there is a certain word I try to avoid at all costs, but in the case of Terminator Genisys (2015) I’m afraid I can’t turn away from using it. This movie is boring. Up and down, from beginning to end, the fifth installment of the Terminator franchise is an uninspired drag. This incorporates the very worst of blockbuster filmmaking – there’s a lack of creativity, ingenuity, and overall enjoyment here. Not only is it a shameless money grab, it also tries to one-up its predecessors by attempting to wipe them clean, essentially erasing the visionary work of…

I had the pms, ate too much dark chocolate, and then had to take something for my hormone and caffeine induced anxiety spiral. I went to the Magic Mike XXL screening looking for a pleasant diversion, and boy did director Gregory Jacobs give it to me. For reals, it made my day. It’s a very different film than Magic Mike, and while it may be lighter, that’s not a bad thing at all. The first film had much more emphasis on the dance routines and the possible repercussions of making poor…

The Wedding Night is no exception. Unlike many of the Vidor titles I'm familiar with that portray an all-encompassing life story, such as The Crowd (1928), H.M. Pulham, Esq.

Died June 28, 1937 in Los Angeles, CA. A 1930s delight, mostly at Warner Bros., specializing in cranky, nosy, busybody old ladies, aligned anywhere from the working class to high society. Lowell was also capable of playing a sweet grandmotherly type as she does in Snowed Under (1936), though that's a bit of a waste once you've seen her in less sympathetic parts. Both types are at work to great effect in Party…

And now, since the internet abhors a vacuum, that mashup video is here for the enjoyment of all. What is surprising is how restrained and relatively low-key it is. Chicago-born digital filmmaker Nelson Carvajal, whose varied resume includes work on The Biggest Loser, Colombiana, and two Transformers sequels, has crafted a clever mock trailer entitled Incept Out by taking candy-colored footage from Inside Out and…

Geek darling Emilia Clarke starring, a new twist playing with the series’ timeline, and the eagerly anticipated return of Arnold Schwarzenegger, it looked as though Jurassic World might be knocked from the top spot at the box office. But after a series of mediocre professional reviews (read ours) and less than enthusiastic feedback from advanced screenings, Terminator: Genisys had a lackluster opening weekend. According to Box Office Mojo, the film only made $44 million domestically over…

    5 Jul 2015 | 11:12 am
    Passionate fans of HBO's "Game of Thrones" are frantically putting together clues about whether a popular character is really dead. Fan-favorite Jon Snow seemingly perished in the fifth season finale of the show on June 14. Actor Kit Harington appeared at the Wimbledon tennis tournament this weekend still sporting his long "Snow" locks, giving watchers hope that he will return after all. Also in the actual episode, they wonder if "Melisandre arriving at the Wall just before his death couldn't have been a coincidence." Are these both important clues as to whether Jon Snow will be back next…

  • Dope: Quite Dope!

    admin
    29 Jun 2015 | 10:05 am
    Dope is a coming of age comedy that has gained mixed reviews. While some consider it as an unfunny cliched movie, others claim it’s full of energy and thrill. All in all, Dope has made its impression on the cinephiles. Although it’s not Dope in itself, you can see a mixed bag of struggles, compromises, and moral complexities in the movie. The film revolves around the story of a teenager, Malcolm, who has his fair share of battles to deal with, his life portrayal in the movie seems like a real life depiction where it no longer seems like fiction but rather a reality which is more…
  • Spy: Exceeds Expectations

    Chris D'souza
    26 Jun 2015 | 3:13 pm
    Spy is a Melissa McCarthy’s cinematic reunion with director Paul Feig from The Heat (2013) and Bridesmaids (2011). Together, they have invented a richer role than the usual sketch-comedy stereotype McCarthy is known for. Beta women are a staple in Paul Feig’s movies and this movie is no different. The movie’s running time is 115 minutes. With its moderate budget of $65 million, it is well set to exceed expectations at the box office. The movie is giving stifling competition to Pitch Perfect 2, which is holding its ground in its fourth week. Synopsis Melissa McCarthy plays…
  • Insidious: Chapter 3 – Definitely not the Last One!

    Chris D'souza
    24 Jun 2015 | 2:07 pm
    Insidious: Chapter 3 is a prequel to its franchise, just as last year’s Annabelle was to The Conjuring. Both prequels are a dire ghost routine compared to their qualitative and profitable initial offerings. The movie, written and directed by Leigh Whannel, has a markedly low production value. The movie’s fan following is called Insidiots for their unwavering loyalty. Synopsis A ghostly entity has entered the lives of ordinary folks. Sean Brenner has a teenage daughter and a spoilt preteen son. The teenage daughter, Quinn, is reaching out to the ghost world to look for her deceased…
  • Inside Out: Pixar’s Return to Form

    Chris D'souza
    22 Jun 2015 | 2:09 pm
    Inside Out is one of the most special movies which is truly a gift to the audience by Pixar. Usually, such movies are made by indie studios and don’t get the popularity they deserve, but this is definitely not the case with Inside Out. This new film based on the theme of the emotional composition of a young girl has succeeded in entertaining viewers of all ages, from kids to adults. The film focuses on the voices inside the head and beautifully portrays the conflict and variance between the emotions and all that goes inside but often remains suppressed in our minds. The film has not…
  • Jurassic World: the Biggest Blockbuster of the Year (So Far)

    19 Jun 2015 | 2:20 pm
    Jurassic World is by default a blockbuster film, a trend on the rise in Hollywood after the success of The Lego Movie and The Avengers. Jurassic World may pale in comparison to its predecessor in terms of character development, after all the original Jurassic Park was directed by Steven Spielberg, but it’s undoubtedly the most thrilling movie of the franchise. The movie’s budget is $150 million with a running time of 124 minutes. Story Arc Jurassic World is operating as a theme park of sorts, doing roaring business with rides, souvenirs and feeding shows.

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 164 Smokey and The Bandit

    30 Jun 2015 | 10:58 am
    Little did we all know that it was truckers and CB's that pioneered the art of wi-fi and chat rooms back in the day. Smokey and the Bandit introduced America to the adventure/comic-laid world of the big rig trucker and his Southern domains via comedic stylings of legend Jackie Gleason and Burt Reynolds. Matt is disappointed his childhood nostalgia for such fair, infused with hot wheels sandbox antics and pre-pubescent notions of romance, didn't send him back into yesteryear. However, Mark's first viewing left a positive impression. Pop a Coors, sit back, and relax good buddy…
  • 163 Zoolander

    10 Jun 2015 | 11:12 pm
    An Ebert one-star movie, Matt and Mark come across probably one of the famous film critic's worst reviews of all time. Conflating Zoolander's "insensitivity" to the events of 9/11 is probably one of the greatest stretches since the Olympic pole vault record was broken. Regardless, derived from Ben Stiller's hilarious "Ben Stiller Show", Zoolander deftly ties all its sketches in with a fairly consistent and well written story line. So grab a hose of 87 Octane and let the fun begin!Download:  163 Zoolander

    The nerd stereotype, codified recently by such sitcom fair as Big Ban Theory, is much more nuanced and varied than your typical comic book nerd, as depicted in 1985's classic Real Genius. Chris Knight, Mitch Taylor, and Lazlo Hollyfield portray well thought out three dimensional characters that offer up a tiny comedic slice of the genius mind. While playing loose and fast with technical development cycles for military hardware and procurement timelines, Real Genius makes science coooool!Download: 162 Real Genius

  • 160 Get Carter

    20 May 2015 | 5:08 pm
    This week we review the classic British crime film Get Carter released in 1971. A view into the gritty proletariat British underworld, this groundbreaking film dispenses with the flash of previous British efforts, likening itself more to American detective stories. Mark feels its influences may have come full circle however, with directors like Guy Ritchie emulating Get Carter but unfortunately falling into a stylized glammy traps. A classic anti-hero feast, Michael Caine is the definition of the "smooth criminal."Download: 160 Get Carter

I wanted to get a sense of whether this flick was any good before I tried for a review copy. That’s my reviewing MO. It cuts down on the amount of “bad movies” I might end up reviewing otherwise.

  • Animal Crackers (1930, Victor Heerman)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    6 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    After initially teasing some kind of narrative, Animal Crackers gives it up and embraces not just being a stage adaptation (hope I don’t forget to talk about that aspect) but also a series of sketches. Not just comedy sketches, but also musical ones. The film takes place over a day. It starts one morning, it ends the next morning. In that time, besides the Marx Brothers arrival at the swank, palatial home of Margaret Dumont (who’s particularly wonderful here), there’s a missing painting. That missing painting is as far as Crackers goes narrative. Groucho being an explorer…
  • There Will Be Blood (2007, Paul Thomas Anderson)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    5 Jul 2015 | 8:54 pm
    There Will Be Blood. I don’t know where to start. Daniel Day-Lewis’s performance is biggest thing in the film–it’s the film, after all. Without Day-Lewis, the film’s not possible. Director Anderson gives Day-Lewis some quiet at the beginning of the picture to establish himself; there’s nothing to do but stare as the music comes up, as Robert Elswit’s photography contains the carefully executed action. Day-Lewis transfixes and never lets go. But Blood is, beneath all its epic trappings, just a character study. It’s such an intense character…
  • The Road Within (2014, Gren Wells)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    5 Jul 2015 | 10:01 am
    The Road Within is a story about finding yourself. Every guy in the movie finds himself. The women don’t find themselves but they help the guys find themselves. How do you find yourself? By rebelling. Except Road is about people with mental disorders. Lead Robert Sheehan has Tourettes, his romantic interest (Zoë Kravitz) has anorexia and his roommate (Dev Patel) has really bad OCD. Kyra Sedgwick is their chain smoking doctor, Robert Patrick is Sheehan’s dad (who has anger management issues). The movie gets off to a strange start in Sedgwick’s clinic because no one else is…
  • On the Waterfront (1954, Elia Kazan)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    3 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    On the Waterfront is relentlessly grim until the strangest moment in the finale. As the film finally reaches the point of savage, physical violence–it opens with the implication, but not the visualization of such violence–a supporting character (familiar but mostly background) makes a wisecrack. Until that point in the film, director Kazan forcibly pushes even the possibility of a smile away. And even though Waterfront is desolate–gorgeously desolate with Boris Kaufman’s photography–there’s still positive emotion among its residents. Eva Marie Saint’s…
  • Gangs of New York (2002, Martin Scorsese)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    2 Jul 2015 | 10:04 pm
    Gangs of New York is a really big, really bad epic. Director Scorsese pays so much attention to the scale of the film, with sweeping crane shots and intense (and terrible) action sequences, he doesn’t pay much attention to the other elements of the film. Like the acting. And the script. First, the acting. It’s not terrible. Leonardo DiCaprio, who’s always clean-shaven and always has perfect hair because he’s a matinée idol, not an actor here, isn’t atrocious. He can’t keep an accent but, when he’s delivering the lame dialogue or pretending a romance…

    Starring Peter Mullan as the titular Hector, what's striking about this low-key but quietly affecting film is the way it doesn't wallow in Hector's situation or succumb to obvious homeless stereotypes and the grim tone that often haunts British film. Though Hector is homeless after a difficult situation in his past, he finds companionship in fellow rough-sleepers Hazel (Natalie Gavin) and Dougie (Laurie Ventry), and together they go about their day. For Hector, that involves collecting his pension, getting a warm cup of coffee and having a quick wash in a supermarket bathroom. This aspect of…

However, as she delves into the story of her first sexual encounter, we discover that it's hideously inappropriate and extremely illegal, considering the man in question – Monroe (Alexander Skarsgard) - is 20 years her senior and oh yeah, also happens to be her mother's boyfriend...

Such is the case with the frank and uncomfortable sex comedy The Overnight. Emily and Alex (Taylor Schilling and Adam Scott, respectively) recently relocated from Seattle to LA, and while their youngster RJ has a birthday party to attend that will help him make friends, they are still feeling a little isolated and friendless. That is, until uber-hipster Kurt (Jason Schwartzman) approaches them at the park after his son befriends theirs.

Smart move. To get there, though, we have to wade through a script overloaded with time-hopping threads requiring…

    I may be easy to freak out but I do still have high standards when it comes to horror movies.

Star Trek VI wisely sidesteps the directorial efforts of William Shatner (Star Trek V), instead employing Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyer, who delivers the level of quality that made Star Trek II such a success. It steps up the special effects and the storytelling, although the whodunnit is rather undermined by the culprit sticking out like pointy ears. The plot is solid, involving Kirk (Shatner) being accused of…

  • Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

    Dan Meier
    1 Jul 2015 | 1:00 am
    Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd hit the big screen in 2007, courtesy of artist, director and David Cameron’s friend Tim Burton. In one of the great shock casting decisions of the 21st century, Burton cast Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter as the leads; the murderous barber Sweeney Todd and his doting pie-chef Mrs. Lovett. In fairness to Burton, his gothic fixations are perfectly suited to this macabre musical – which is more than can be said for his Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Still, one can’t help but wish he’d hired better singers, rather than his…
  • The Last King of Scotland

    Dan Meier
    30 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    The feature debut of documentarian Kevin Maconald (Marley), The Last King of Scotland is a 2006 historical thriller – not about Alex Salmond, but former Ugandan President Idi Amin (Forest Whittaker). The story is seen through the eyes of a fictional Scottish doctor (James McAvoy), who travels to Uganda in 1970 for a wee bit of adventure, but ends up a close personal ally of a military dictator. We’ve all been there. This is all made convincing by the two central actors. Whittaker’s Oscar-winning performance as Amin fills the screen; all charm and smiles until he’s all…

  • ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Was Extremely Popular With The Ladies, Breaking Record Set By ‘Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants’

    Zachary Rowell
    6 Jul 2015 | 8:42 am
    According to CinemaScore, women love traveling pants, but they love the situation going on inside Channing Tatum’s pants even more. Magic Mike XXL had a record 96% turnout for females this holiday weekend. This beats Sisterhood Of The The Traveling Pants (94%) and Sex And The City 2 (90%). Sadly, the record female turnout didn’t produce a huge opening for the film. During its first five days, the Magic Mike sequel took in just $26.6 million. And over $25 million of that total came from women wanting to see Tatum work his magic on stage. That’s an insane number. I think Conan…
  • Movie Review: Max (2015) – Jarring, Disorienting and Surprisingly Violent

    admin
    4 Jul 2015 | 8:50 am
    When it comes to dog movies, my standard is Marley & Me. It’s the perfect blend of humor and sentimentality that most dog lovers can enjoy. However, it’s easy to go wrong with dog movies, especially when people try to cram too much into the plot. That’s kind of what happened with Max. The premise is this. A bomb sniffing dog named Max is adopted by his grieving handler’s family after he’s killed in action. It’s earnestly patriotic and clearly aimed at conservative Christian audiences. If you need the plot, take an entire season of Lassie, significantly increase the violence…
  • The Monopoly Movie Passes Go, Has New Synopsis And New Screenwriter

    Zachary Rowell
    3 Jul 2015 | 7:17 am
    We thought it was dead. We thought someone finally said, “No. We are pushing things too far,” when the first idea for a movie about the Monopoly board game hit a brick wall. The first idea for this strange project was a real estate market satire directed by Ridley Scott. After thinking about it for a few years, Scott realized how ridiculous the concept was and decided to leave the project. And like we said, we thought that was the end of the Monopoly adaptation madness. But apparently people in Hollywood really want to see this game come to life on the big screen. The film’s…
  • Watch: The First Full ‘Steve Jobs’ Trailer Is Filled With That Magical Aaron Sorkin Dialogue

    Zachary Rowell
    2 Jul 2015 | 8:27 am
    Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin actually has a lot in common with Steve Jobs. You will find people who absolutely love Sorkin and his witty dialogue, and you will find people who would rather watch every season of The Celebrity Apprentice. Steve Jobs sparked that same passion. He was either the biggest jerk in the world or the most creative/inspiring person in the world. Where am I going with this? I’m not exactly sure. I think I just wanted to point out that Sorkin was clearly the right man for this job, and the new full-length trailer for Steve Jobs confirms this. Sorkin’s wonderful…

    1 Jul 2015 | 8:07 am
    We can never just be happy with one thing. We always need more. The 2004 comedy White Chicks was the perfect surprise. No one expected much from it, especially after the critics completely smashed the movie. But just like Joe Dirt, it developed a cult following years after its release. We already know all about the Joe Dirt sequel being released this month on Crackle. And now, thanks to the power of the internet, a sequel to White Chicks might be next. Marlon Wayans posted the photo you see below to his Instagram account a few days ago, with the caption, “Show of hands who wants to see…

  • Sense8

    Artha
    13 Jun 2015 | 9:20 am
    One of the few shows I’ve binged on, upon release, and this one is well suited for exactly that. Sense8 tells the story of eight individuals who posses an interconnectedness with each other, allowing them to share their experiences. The show starts off slowly but picks up by episode 3 and has the best cinematography I’ve ever seen on any television show. The slower pace adds to the incredible character development and I went from hating several characters to loving them all by the end. Give the show at least three episodes before you decide on whether or not to continue watching.
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    9 Jun 2015 | 12:55 pm
    A lovely adventurous sort of movie. The Grand Budapest Hotel is the narration of how the main character (Zero Mustafa) became the owner of the famous hotel. The movie is filmed in a certain style (typical of a Wes Anderson movie), different from most films. The variety of characters in this movie is the most enjoyable aspect of the film and adds to the comedic interactions between them. This is a great movie with a fun plot and comes highly recommended.

  • Spartacus

    Artha
    13 May 2015 | 2:55 pm
    “Bloody” is probably the best way to describe this particular show. Spartacus is based on the true story (liberally) of a slave who starts a revolution against the Roman empire to set slaves free. Two main attractions of this show are the action and the storylines of each character. As you may also notice, the way the characters speak English is quite funny throughout the course of the show. Spartacus is just enjoyable to watch, granted, partly due to the gratuitous nature of the show. Links: IMDB | The post Spartacus appeared first on Refined Distractions.

Four individuals are subsequently drawn together to try to prevent the organization’s plans. In addition to the plot, the vibrant visuals and addictive soundtrack really stand out during the course of the show. Unfortunately, the show only has two seasons but is still worth checking out.

    WTF. One of the most psychologically disturbing movies I’ve ever seen. Gone Girl (based on a novel) is the story of a missing person case in which the husband is the prime suspect, based on evidence revealed throughout the movie. The things that stand out in this movie are both the plot and visuals. The story manages to keep you guessing until the end and the visuals create an eerie feeling during the movie. This film comes highly recommended and it really gives you something to think about. Links: IMDB | The post Gone Girl appeared first on Refined Distractions.

Unlike the last Grahame-Smith novel to be adapted to the big screen, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Steers says he went out of his way to make sure this movie doesn’t turn into another B-movie horror spectacle. “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight.

    Before Zack Snyder announced the follow-up – not necessarily a sequel – to Man of Steel would be Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, two years ago, people were wondering who would be the villain in the next movie. Since General Zod was killed in the first movie, he wouldn’t be coming back for the sequel and, at this point, Superman needed a bigger, badder villain. Rumors were flying about Metallo and Brainiac, along with Doomsday, which I thought seemed unlikely, and apparently there was some truth to those rumors. “I remember talking about, ‘What’s the next…

    After our DDLJ post, I started to re-watch the only three films directed by Aditya Chopra.In Bollywood, love is a given. It is the foundation of every blockbuster. Without a love story, the characters have no motivation. No likability. No impact on the audience. And a hero who doesn't love can't save the world. He can't fight 100 thugs without a scratch. He can't survive after taking 5 bullets.A hero who doesn't know love can't be a hero.And if you have lived in India in the last two decades, you may have noticed (or will notice post readin this) that the words "hero" and "love" have been…

    Between films and theater plays, it is the former that has to compete with reality. A play, from beginning to end, looks artificial, unreal - the set, the lack of a fourth wall, etc. The audience is not seeing it through the eyes of a specific character nor are they focusing on a single actor. Everything is given to the viewers and they choose what to see. Recreating a play originally written for the stage into a film, is like making a huge jump from artificiality to reality. On stage - the artificiality, the fake background, the overemphasized and loud manner of speech cries out "this is not…

    pk follows director Rajkumar Hirani's signature template - formulaic, longish, with the regular song and dance routine (which by the way doesn't break the pace), homing in on a social message that rings with the masses. This time Hirani makes a commentary on the religious beliefs that mold our identity as individuals. The premise isn't much of a surprise after the recently-released religious satire OMG. But Hirani narrates his story in the most gripping, entertaining way. The humor is mostly subtle, dialogues incisive and with Aamir Khan's perfect timings, pk is easily one of the better films…

With a directorial change and some tighter writing, Find Your Warrior was a nearly perfect way to start out this last season.

  • 4 Reasons Not to Dance with Lap Dance

    AS Andrew
    26 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    Hey, you over there. Don’t even bother with this. Have you seen Lap Dance? If not, then don’t. There are plenty of bad movies out there, and I can certainly think of a few that were far worse than this one. Saying that, this isn’t a whole lot better. Don’t let the IMDb rating (6.2!?) fool you. This isn’t good entertainment (for reasons I’m about to explore), and despite your initial impressions, it doesn’t really have a message worth telling either. Anyway, let’s get down to business. Here are four really good reasons not to dance with Lap…

    23 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    It’s always fun to play on well-populated, competitive servers. Usually you end up with a bit of a lop-sided team, and that’s exactly what happens here (why the hell are there so many snipers on my team?). Anyway, this was still a lot of fun, and I did wind up on the better team for the second round, so that was cool. This was a bit of a shorter sessions compared to my last one, thus why it’s not quite as long. The post Team Fortress 2 – Highlights from December 13, 2014 appeared first on AS Movies & Games.
  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD – Warehouse 70,000 Point Combo

    AS Andrew
    22 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    This is probably the game I sunk the most time into in 2014, especially during the summer. I have a bit of a weakness for the Tony Hawk series, and since this is a remake of some the better, earlier games, there just wasn’t any keeping myself away from it. Suffice to say, I finished all the goals and unlocked everything. In this video, you’ll see me make a reasonably big combo. I am certainly capable of doing much bigger combos, but the line is pretty cool so I’m posting anyway. The post Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD – Warehouse 70,000 Point Combo appeared first on…

  • SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE Trailer

    Shane Sri
    6 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    It’s difficult for certain people to truly relate to others. Even if you share a bed with someone, it doesn’t necessarily mean you care for them. No, you save the real you for someone who will meet you again with a genuine smile. Sex is easy, but a relationship is hard. Despite that, a relationship is worth much more. A womanizer and a female equivalent begin a platonic relationship that changes their lives for the better. As time goes on, a mutual attraction builds between them and it’s not one based in sex. Sleeping With Other People is directed Leslye Headland. This…
  • TED 2: It’s Exactly What You Think It Is

    Alex Lines
    3 Jul 2015 | 10:00 am
    Ted 2 is exactly what you think it is. Seth MacFarlane is an entertainer who infuses all of his work with the same pop-culture heavy and juvenile abundant humour, from his roots in Family Guy to this, his third cinematic effort. The first Ted was a cinematic surprise, over-performing at the box office to become (at the time) the highest grossing R-Rated comedy of all time. Audiences really responded to the simplistic comedic setup – a man and his foul-mouthed talking teddy bear. After this, MacFarlane tried to branch off and headline his own film, A Million Ways to Die in the West, which…
  • THE LAST WITCH HUNTER Trailer

    Shane Sri
    3 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Witches have a bad reputation for no good reason. The “Wicked” Witch of the West just wanted to reclaim some shoes from her sister’s killer. That “gingerbread house” witch just wanted to feed some malnourished kids. Then they slander her memory with stories of cannibalism after they kill her. Think about it, we never heard her side of the story. Now that tradition continues as Hollywood produces another movie about people who kill witches in inhumane and violent ways. Welcome to the trailer for The Last Witch Hunter. Yeah, “Last”. This action-fantasy adventure is directed…

    Edwin Winarto
    2 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Sequels sell like hotcakes. Filmgoers cannot be faulted for summing up today’s film industry simply as that. We don’t really need to draw up any charts or statistics to figure out that half of the films in 2015 consist of sequels. This year alone, a record for the highest-grossing opening for a motion picture previously held by 2012’s The Avengers was broken with Jurassic World’s $208.8 million opening, which, surprise surprise, is another sequel. By those standards, it is just some mundane news when Paramount quickly jumped onto the sequel bandwagon in putting the protracted fifth…
  • The Beginners Guide: Ingmar Bergman

    Alexander Miller
    2 Jul 2015 | 10:00 am
    Saying you like Ingmar Bergman is like saying you like cinema. His influence and style have become more than an influence, a defining layer in the foundation of cinema. With some directors you can recall a few classic movies, but with filmmakers like Bergman, who has so many definitive credits as a director, his filmography can almost seem too daunting to follow. The purpose of this Beginner’s Guide is to guide you through Bergman’s epic filmography. When recalling Bergman’s filmography one has to select the foremost titles from a modicum of classics in order to…

    3 Jul 2015 | 1:40 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Kate Winslet adds another to her already long list of costume dramas with A Little Chaos, the second film directed by actor Alan Rickman. Winslet plays Madame Sabine de Barra, an anachronistically liberated gardener hired by Monsieur André le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts), landscaper to King Louis IV (Rickman). De Barra is to work on an outdoor ballroom at the King's gardens in Versailles. Her independence first perturbs Le Nôtre and his male contractors. But eventually his bewilderment gives way to curiosity and then romantic fascination with the confident gardener. Her…
  • Movie Review: Inside Out (2015)

    by Tony Dayoub There are Pixar films for kids, and there are Pixar films for grown-ups. Inside Out is definitely one for adults, and that grants it a kind of longevity. See, movies like Monsters, Inc., Cars, and even Toy Story have to depend on cutesy characters and sequels to extend their shelf life because, fun as they are, once you've seen them there isn't much there to revisit. Their concerns are those of children: finding what you're good at, fitting in among new friends, coping with a loss of popularity, etc. Movies like The Incredibles, Wall-E, and Up may still have cute characters but…
  • Movie Review: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

    13 May 2015 | 3:38 am
    by Tony Dayoub Gonzo doesn't even begin to describe Mad Max: Fury Road. The fourth entry in the Mad Max series comes thirty years (!) after the last film, with the broken, post-apocalyptic highway patrolman formerly played by Mel Gibson now re-interpreted by Tom Hardy. And one of the things writer-director (and franchise mainstay) George Miller does with a better actor at the helm is give road warrior Max Rockatansky an inner life. Whereas Gibson's Max was filled with rage at the world of "fire and blood" that took his wife and child, Hardy's Max is literally mad. This Max tries to stay busy…
  • Movie Review: Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

    by Tony Dayoub Avengers: Age of Ultron begins in media res, with the usually fractious superheroes seemingly having evolved into a well-oiled, super-powered machine as demonstrated by a coordinated attack on HYDRA and its new leader Baron Von Strucker (Thomas Kretschmann). Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is beating whole flocks of HYDRA soldiers with one swing of his hammer, Mjolnir. Captain America (Chris Evans) uses his motorcycle the way a gymnast would a balance beam, pushing off into acrobatic flips and bowling his enemies over before meeting the cycle again further down the line.

    by Tony Dayoub Who knew that the usually brutish Russell Crowe could be sensitive enough to fashion a film as lyrical as The Water Diviner? By turns epic and intimate, The Water Diviner is a low-key directorial debut for the macho Australian actor who stars as Joshua Connor, a man who lost three sons on the same day in the Battle of Gallipoli. Determined to bring their remains back to Australia, Connor sets out for Çanakkale, Turkey and encounters a larger number of Turks sympathetic to his mission than anyone could imagine. Among them is the beautiful young Ayshe (Olga Kurylenko), a woman…

  • STUNG Review

    Adam Patterson
    3 Jul 2015 | 8:33 am
    I’ve always been a sucker for the creature feature; describe a movie as “giant killer (insert literally any noun in here),” and I’ll probably be excited to check it out – the campier the better. Such is the case with director Benni Diez’s feature debut, Stung, which involves giant killer wasps. It’s, gross, violent, silly and sometimes just plain stupid but in the best kind of way. Top it off with two completely ridiculously fun performances from Clifton Collins Jr. and Lance Henriksen, and you have yourself a bloody good time. The Post STUNG Review first appeared on Film Pulse

    Blake Crane
    1 Jul 2015 | 8:02 pm
    The quality of Terminator films has rapidly declined since James Cameron’s first two installments. Terminator Genisys is a bottoming-out. It’s a rat’s nest of typical time travel plot holes, garbled mythology, bland CGI action, superfluous narrative divergences, and hokey comic relief – even by Schwarzenegger standards. One may be able to pinpoint the death of the franchise as the moment when Schwarzenegger’s aged Terminator is arrested and smiles awkwardly for his mug shot while the theme from Cops plays on the soundtrack. That’s the level of inspiration on display throughout.

    Warren Ellis will write a series of James Bond comics for Dynamite beginning in November. News There haven't been very many James Bond comics in the last decade or so. That's strange considering that the film franchise has been in a state of renewal since 2006's Casino Royale. You'd think that Bond would have become more omnipresent given the popularity of films like Casino Royale and Skyfall (A Quantum of Solace was, we admit, a hiccup).  Dynamite is about to help things along with a new James Bond series kicking off in November, just in time for Spectre to hit theaters.

    We look at how director Tomm Moore created the Oscar-nominated animation Song Of The Sea, and how the Irish landscape inspired it... Feature Walking along Ventry beach in south west island, it's easy to see how a filmmaker might be inspired by the spectacular landscape: the rolling hills and craggy rocks, the overwhelming air of tranquillity. But the inspiration for animator Tomm Moore's new film, the Oscar-nominated Song Of The Sea, was inspired by a less than tranquil experience. About a decade ago, Moore was staying on holiday in the nearby town of Dingle, and visited Ventry beach with his…

    Before Casino Royale took James Bond down a darker path, there was Timothy Dalton's final 007 outing, Licence To Kill... Feature So this is the anti-Bond. Stripped of the requisite wit and mischief. Short of temper, heavy of touch. The SPECTREs of yore replaced by a drugs cartel. World domination downgraded to a heroin monopoly. Glamour smothered by grit. Joy drowned in the bloodshed. The icon of British cinema reduced to an American cop show – MI6 Vice, Hawaii 007 – timeless style swamped by the vulgarity and cash of the late-1980s, a case of ‘Sayonara, Mr Bond’ and everything…

    Channing Tatum returns to headline Magic Mike XXL. It's better than you think... Review The gradual reveal of Channing Tatum as a box office magnet and sorely underestimated movie star was staggered over the first half of 2012. The Vow and 21 Jump Street were both hits that showed off opposite sides of his range, but his two collaborations with Steven Soderbergh set him on his current path. Long renowned as an actor's director, Soderbergh cast Tatum in a minor role in Haywire, which is how he came to be attached to Magic Mike, a semi-biographical project based on the actor's experiences…

    Is episode two of the final season as good as last week's kick off?"Have you seen myoh shit face lately?"Simply put. No.Last week's episode definitely started the season in the right direction. With a directorial change and some tighter writing, Find Your Warrior was a nearly perfect way to start out this last season. After a fourth season that just couldn't get anything right, fans were hopeful that the show might finally find a direct path to a series finale that wouldn't be hampered by non-essential plot points and a constant string of poor creative choices. Season four was only consistent…

Various researches suggest that cricket is the outcome of a pastime of yesteryears when an object like a small piece of wood or a ball was played by one person and another person hit it with a suitably fashioned club. Many studies show that cricket was born in England in 1600s. However, one study reveals that cricket was born in Belgium. A poem, ‘The Image of Ipocrisie’ written in 1533 and attributed to John Skelton suggests the presence of cricket.

    Man of Steel was a bit of a polarising picture. The film that would establish some of the building blocks for Warner Bros.’ DC universe was afforded a mixed reception, with many criticising the film for its dark tone and episodic plot structure. While the film certainly has its fans, it’s the city-destroying finale that is often used as fuel by the naysayers. This is Superman after all – the saviour of humanity; it doesn’t necessarily match his almost saintly presence in pop culture when you consider just how many innocents were killed when Henry Cavill’s Kal-El…

A female director, not to mention a director of colour, would have been quite the get for Marvel. Still, regardless of the gender and race politics that Marvel – and many other studios – are dealing with when it comes to the P.R. game, DuVernay proved her worth as director with a fantastic biopic. She would have been an interesting addition to the MCU. “I’m not signing on to direct Black Panther,” DuVernay…

This is a rumor and should definitely be consumed with a big heaping scoop of salt, but it makes a lot of sense. Historically, Marvel's film rights are among the densest, most convoluted in Hollywood.

    When is a war movie not a war movie? In the case of The Dirty Dozen, directed by Robert Aldrich, the answer is when the movie plays less like a series of gritty battle sequences and more like a military-themed heist flick. True, the movie takes place during World War II, but if you’re looking for trench battles and tanks, look elsewhere. In fact, no Nazis even show up until late in the film. Does this make the movie any less enjoyable? Absolutely not; in fact, it places it near the top of my list of war movies. What makes it such a good movie to watch with your dad?

    There’s a principle in entertainment called “the 40-year rule,” championed by writer Adam Gopnik, which posits that people in every era are fascinated by the culture of the era that came 40 years before them. It’s easy to think of examples both for and against this notion, but a strong bit of evidence in its favor is Sidney Lumet’s 1974 film of a 1934 Agatha Christie story, Murder on the Orient Express. Another 40 years and change have passed since the film and the 1975 Oscar ceremony where it received 6 nominations, so it’s high time to give it another look. Christie wrote the…

  • 13 Totally Unexpected Movie Moments that Happen in An Elevator

    David
    6 Jul 2015 | 5:21 am
    We all take the elevator. For most of us, it is a completely uneventful experience where we are most likely wishing either that the guy crammed next to us had taken a shower or if standing alone, wondering if the security guard watching the camera in the corner is zooming in our butts. But if you’re in the movies, then the elevator is a whole different thing. Here, we take a look at 10 random, totally unexpected moments in film when something memorable happened on an elevator. Enjoy the ride. The Turtles Bring The Beat Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) The Set Up: In 2014,…

    The One-Line Summary: Young, blue-collar worker, Jimmy “B-Rabbit” Smith Jr. (Eminem) moves from Detroit back to his Mom’s (Basinger) trailer just off famed 8 Mile Road and dreams of being a rapper musician, but when encouraged by his friends to enter a rap battle at the local club called The Shelter, his lack of confidence leaves him scurrying off stage, humiliated, though as time passes he learns about responsibility and one day when a gay co-worker is verbally insulted in an impromptu rap at the car factory where he works, he steps up and defends his friend, which in turn…

    This post inspired by MovieRob whose review introduced me to this film. The One-Line Summary: Harry Stoner (Lemmon) is a war veteran living in the bustle of the early 1970s, conflicted about the lost ideals he and his fellow soldiers fought (and many who died) for and the growing complexities of adult life compared to his care-free youth, now watching the garment company he manages fall to ruin with no legal way to keep it afloat, forcing him to consider a terrible option, one that strains his relationship with his business partner and further crumbles the last of his waning integrity in this…
  • Poster Picks: Film Versus Marketing with Jaws and the Skinny-Dipper

    David
    4 Jul 2015 | 2:00 am
    Based on the book of the same name by the late Peter Benchley, Jaws hardly needs an introduction. The tale of a massive, predatory Great White shark feeding off the shores of Amity Island (a fictional New England resort town) is considered to be the first true summer blockbuster, having influence on film even now, almost 40 years later. The deep, irrational fears this clever monster in the dark movie conjures has kept audiences of all ages fascinated for decades, inspiring countless imitations and generating a now classic approach to how best the formula works. The film is of course most…

    David
    3 Jul 2015 | 12:53 am
    Having sat through and really enjoyed Schwarzenegger’s recent zombie but-totally-not-zombie film, Maggie, the idea of the unstoppable actor returning to his roots as the unstoppable robot was not something that appealed. Still, it’s Terminator. There’s a kind of obligation, and even though it stumbled in the last few entries, the idea of time-traveling killer robots is still one of the best in sci-fi. First question? Why does Hollywood hate the Golden Gate Bridge? I’ll let that go. The central theme to this film is that we as a modern civilization use our smartphones…

In the battle against Skynet, John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to 1984, to protect his mother Sarah Connor. When Reese arrives, things are not quite what he expected… Terminator Genisys rewrites the previous two Terminator films, taking viewers back to the events of Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

  • RocknRolla: Crime with Comedy

    30 Jun 2015 | 11:24 am
    I thought I’d review a different kind of flavour of film this week and talk about the 2008 British gangster movie ‘RocknRolla’. Directed by Guy Ritchie (Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch), ‘RocknRolla’ represents a very unique genre of film that is unlike any ‘gangster movies’ on the American market. The way in which Ritchie can master this particular trade allows us to see film we don’t often get to visualize.Read more »
  • Basic Instinct: The Great Battle of Psychology

    23 Jun 2015 | 12:01 pm
    ‘Basic Instinct’ has to be one of the biggest ‘erotic thrillers’ on the market. Sure it did kick up some controversy during the time of its release (1992), but what it did achieve was an enormous following when it flourished into a box office winner. Unfortunately it wasn’t all perfect, the plot could have taken a different turn to what we discover and that’s certainly the difference between it being a good film and not a great film.Read more »

    Watch the movie trailer here for the next James Bond movie labelled ‘Spectre’. It looks promising and to add Christopher Waltz as the villain is certainly a marvellous decision. I have no doubts that this wonderful actor can portray a Bond villain superbly, and his character Franz Oberhauser looks to be very intriguing. ‘Spectre’ will of course star Daniel Craig, continuing his depiction of the infamous British spy. I have to be honest and say Craig isn’t the best choice for the portrayal of Bond but the previous works of ‘Skyfall’ allowed me to notice he is not that bad. His…

    17 Jun 2015 | 10:43 am
    Earlier this week I had the pleasure in watching the 1995 hit ‘The Usual Suspects’. Overall it was my second time in watching this movie classic, and I must say, there was an improved vision of the story this time around. I want to recommend this for anyone who is yet to see it. The only advice I can give is to make sure you’re all ready to deeply concentrate on what is happening. There are all these sequences for you to follow, and there is so much information for you to process, however none of this matters when the movie is nothing but flawless.Read more »

  • Samuel L. Jackson Wants To Make Unbreakable 2

    6 Jul 2015 | 9:19 am
    Unbreakable starring Bruce Willis as the unbreakable man was released in 2000, and director M. Night Shyamalan and his actors are still talking about a sequel that may never happen. Mostly everyone seems to be on board, including Samuel L. Jackson. While Shyamalan said earlier this year that Unbreakable 2 would be cool, his actor recently said that he's game to return as Elijah Price.  Amid the Batman v Superman, Deadpool and all-around Comic-Con heavy previews, Entertainment Weekly published an oral history of Unbreakable. Shyamalan, Willis and Jackson were among the dozens of people…
  • Why Jurassic World's Director Had Big Problems With The Trailers

    6 Jul 2015 | 8:11 am
    There is a natural conflict between the filmmaker and the studio, according to Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow. The duty of the former is to storytelling, while the duty of the latter is to sell the film to audiences. Those conflicting interests cultivate uneven ground, which was the case when the first trailers for Jurassic World came out. In light of everything these promos revealed, Trevorrow ended up having lots of problems with the marketing campaign.  In an interview with IGN, the filmmaker had an opportunity to vent about these issues. He said:  My opinion? They have…
  • Will Terminator Genisys Even Get A Sequel?

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:47 am
    The party line on Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys always seemed to be that Paramount wanted the latest chapter in the Terminator saga to operate as the start of a fresh trilogy. We have stories dating back to 2014 about sequels being shot back-to-back, structured around this young cast who'd be asked to carry the Terminator torch for a new generation. Will they still get a chance to make that happen? The numbers this morning aren't helping the case. Taylor's Terminator: Genisys opened to $28.7 million over the holiday weekend, and a 5-day haul of $44.1M. IGN reports that this is lowest bow…
  • Funny Pixar Parody Mocks The Upper Middle Class Problems Of Inside Out

    6 Jul 2015 | 7:08 am
    Pixar's Inside Out introduced us to Riley, a young girl forced to uproot her life and move to the dreary, less colorful San Francisco with her mom and dad. This jarring moment is what throws her whole life out of whack and into a crumbling depression. Critics and audiences responded extremely well to the latest from the animation giant, but according to one parody, all of her problems are not really problems. They are merely privileged white people problems.  L.A.-based writer-director-performer Shirin Najafi created a short parody of Inside Out and the debilitating issues, like…

    3 Jul 2015 | 7:17 pm
    Quite an odd film I, Frankenstein, with its selling of the monster as a patchwork super hero, via this 2014 offering from Australia and the USA that feels like an amalgamation of the 2003 film Underworld. The presence of Bill Nighy along with Kevin Grevioux helps to reinforce this feeling. The fact that the theme … Continue reading I, Frankenstein (2014): A Patchwork Super Hero → The post I, Frankenstein (2014): A Patchwork Super Hero appeared first on MikesFilmTalk.

    In 2014, Darren Aronofsky finished Noah, his version of the biblical tale of a flooded world where only a chosen few survive by building an ark and filling it with pairs of animals, but his story is much more science fiction than bible fact. The film is enjoyable precisely because of this merging and changing … Continue reading Noah (2014): Science Fiction Not Biblical → The post Noah (2014): Science Fiction Not Biblical appeared first on MikesFilmTalk.

  • Magic Mike XXL [2015]

    2 Jul 2015 | 10:10 pm
    Magic Mike XXL [2015] is the sequel to Magic Mike [2012].  Three years after Mike (Channing Tatum) bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, he and the remaining Kings of Tampa hit the road to Myrtle Beach to put on one last blowout performance.  Gregory Jacobs fills Steven Soderbergh’s directorial shoes, with the latter taking over cinematography and editing duties. The “bigger”, the better.  Credit to the filmmakers for not making the same film twice.  Instead of a drama, we get a road-trip movie.  No Matthew McConaughey, Alex…
  • Terminator Genisys [2015]

    2 Jul 2015 | 10:34 am
    Terminator: Genisys [2015], whose name isn’t doing it any favors, is the new sequel/reboot of the franchise that everyone loved until the third film. The first film of a planned money-grabbing trilogy, Genisys finds a timeline split altering the events of the original film. Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) is now a full-on warrior, trained and protected by a different T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger). Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) finds a very different girl than he did in the 1984 original and together they must stop Skynet (again), this time in the form of the mysterious program known as…
  • Dope [2015]

    29 Jun 2015 | 11:03 am
    Dope [2015] is one of the most buzzed about films out of 2015’s Sundance Film Festival and it tells the tale of teenage geek Malcolm (Shameik Moore). After a birthday party at a drug dealer’s house goes bad (imagine that, right?), Malcolm and his friends Jib (Tony Revolori) and Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) have to dodge gangs and dealers all while trying to keep their futures intact. Throwback Thursday. The film, along with its main characters, love and reference 90’s culture quite a bit while maintaining some modern sensibilities. It features a killer soundtrack and has some…
  • The Conversation [1974]

    29 Jun 2015 | 10:47 am
    The Conversation [1974] is a film directed by the legendary Francis Ford Coppola. The film follows Harry Caul (Gene Hackman), a surveillance expert for hire on his latest assignment. Coppola’s film is told at a time of Watergate and the Vietnam War; a time when America itself was struggling with similar issues of morality to those presented in the film. Unfortunately, The Conversation has been somewhat forgotten, lost in the shadow of its bigger sibling; another of Coppola’s masterpieces, The Godfather: Part II. Cutting and Mixing. The film’s greatest asset is in its…
  • Ted 2 [2015]

    29 Jun 2015 | 10:17 am
    Ted 2 [2015] is Seth MacFarlane’s sequel to his smash hit, Ted [2012], a movie about Ted, a teddy bear that comes to life.  Just as last time, MacFarlane returns to write, direct, produce, and act.  Also returning is Mark Wahlberg as John, who has been Ted’s best friend since he was eight years old.  Newcomer Amanda Seyfried plays Ted’s lawyer (we’ll get to that in a minute).  The plot?  Ted and his girlfriend want to have a baby.  The twist? Ted is not a person, and therefore, is not recognized as one by the government.  Upset…
