    Jennifer Lawrence's charisma and the the sly excellence of her supporting cast keep "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" aloft. This third installment in the "Hunger Games" saga (technically chapter three, part one) is a bleak, sometimes dire experience, and not only because it's the darkest installment yet in an already dark saga, catching dystopian rebels in a beaten-down and demoralized state. As written by regular series scribes Peter Craig and Danny Strong, and as directed by Frances Lawrence (who helmed the second film in the series, "Hunger Games: Catching Fire"), it also feels a bit…

    Over the fall, I had the honor of teaching a section of the “Language of Film” course at New York University, to a group of very bright freshman. The main lecturer was in charge of the syllabus, and the textbook was David Bordwell and Kristen Thomson’s excellent “Film Art: An Introduction.” One of the sessions was on “Experimental Film,” and for that class I showed a section of Shirley Clarke’s 1985 “Ornette: Made In America,” ostensibly a documentary about the incredible jazz innovator Ornette Coleman. In an unusual coincidence, at the lecture prior to my class,…

    Bill Cosby raped me. Now that I have your attention, consider this: the allegations of sexual misadventure and impropriety that has pummeled the Cos over the last few weeks is not the issue. The issue is the scurrilous environment where media outlets and journalists lie in wait, like aging corpulent prostitutes, their hair dyed flame red and their nails like elongated daggers — waiting to blow any John who dares to topple those who may be kings. It's once again an example of the TMZ-isation of journalism. Also read: Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Scandal: TheWrap Investigates 1969 Rape…

    San Diego, my hometown, is not only the summer superhero party central with San Diego Comic-Con in July, it is also the host of the San Diego Film Festival from Nov. 6-15. That's actually longer than the American Film Institute's Film Festival (Nov. 6-13).

    Vampires will always be with us, representative as they are of humanity's endless interest in blood-sucking creatures of the night who stand in the tense space where fear meets desire, and two of the dreamiest most romantic movies released this year have been vampire movies. Jim Jarmusch's "Only Lovers Left Alive" created a nocturnal dreamspace of love and old (really old) age, and music and survival, with two soul mates meeting up again and again throughout the endless abyss of time. Ana Lily Amirpour’s black-and-white debut feature "A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night," with a vampire in a…

    What a tortured path “The King and the Mockingbird” has taken to reach theaters in the United States, and what a treat it is for us to be able to experience it now. The French animated gem—which massively influenced Hayao Miyazaki in the creation of his legendary Studio Ghibli—originally was conceived in the early 1950s, but became tangled in creative differences over which finished cut was the proper one. While it finally came out in France in 1980, it has been mired ever since in rights issues since, which have prevented its release in the U.S. Now, a digitally restored version…

    “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” is tearing up the box office, despite getting the least-positive reviews thus far of the movie franchise.

    Allison Williams is prepared for takeoff — but the possible live TV turbulence of NBC's “Peter Pan Live” is not lost on her. The “Girls” star will don green tights and do some stunt-flying next month for the network Peter Pan adaptation, a followup to its hit “Sound of Music Live” last year. In a featurette released by the network on Saturday, Williams said that she knows people will draw comparisons between the two. She also admitted a moment of total fear over that fact.

    Paramount Pictures/Bond 360 A lot of Best Picture hopefuls each year have documentary counterparts. It makes sense, because biopics and other true stories are great fodder for Oscar bait. Some are as easy as Monster and Milk being linked to Nick Broomfield’s Aileen Wuornos films and The Times of Harvey Milk, respectively, in part because the dramas were directly influenced by their doc predecessors. Others, like Dallas Buyers Club and How to Survive a Plague and Captain Phillips and Stolen Seas are not as officially linked but certainly go together by being about the same real-life…
  • 7 Glorious Uses of Nick Cave Music in Movies

    Monika Bartyzel
    21 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
    Corniche Pictures By most accounts, Nick Cave is a particular taste, only occasionally entering pop culture by covering iconic songs or collaborating with pop superstars like Kylie Minogue. Yet the man who “sings every line like a Batman villain” thrives on film. His idiosyncratic brand of storytelling songwriting morphs to the occasion. It’s a strange phenomenon of film – that particular songs about particular experiences can become so universal in the right filmmaker’s hands. But this isn’t merely a songwriter whose early work is continually reembraced and reimagined like…

Neighboring nations have borne the brunt of the humanitarian crisis sparked by the civil war, which has killed nearly 200,000 people and forced more than 3 million to flee. The money, which brings the total aid given by Washington since the start of the war in 2011 to more than $3 billion, will mainly go to the U.N.

    Fifteen years after “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” dazzled Western audiences with its wuxia moves, the martial arts adventure is getting a sequel — this time, debuting on Netflix. The subscription service is teaming up for the project with arthouse veterans Bob and Harvey Weinstein. “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend” will...

    Sam Fuller’s “The Big Red One,” a lost platoon of a movie that was cut to shreds upon initial release, finally came home to a hero’s welcome in 2005 with the release of “The Reconstruction.” What appeared to theatrical audiences of 1980 as a ragtag chronicle of young men at war now stands tall as […] Click on the blue headline to read the full post at

  • Vernon, Florida

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

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

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

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

  • Watch: New Trailer for 'Kingdom of Dreams and Madness' Ghibli Doc

    21 Nov 2014 | 3:58 pm
    "As for me, I'm done making movies." Here's something to make you smile. GKids has released an official US trailer for The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness, a documentary about legendary animation house Studio Ghibli in Japan. From director Mami Sunada, the doc provides an unprecedented inside look at the inner workings of Ghibli and the daily life of animator Hayao Miyazaki, who has officially retired from making features. I've seen this documentary and it's absolutely wonderful, I was refreshed and felt so happy by the end. There's a certain magic to Studio Ghibli and they capture some of…
  • Review: 'Mockingjay - Part 1' Sets a Fine Stage for Superb Series' End

    Jeremy Kirk
    21 Nov 2014 | 2:56 pm
    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I, the first of a two-part finale wrapping up the beloved and lucrative Hunger Games franchise, is a stand-in representation of a number of rages in Hollywood. A dystopian future in which the people, under the control of a brutish government, are beginning to rebel? Check. A tough, female protagonist who finds her emotions torn between two men? Double check. Even the idea of splitting the final novel in Suzanne Collins' young adult series into two films is matching the current "way to do things." Despite its familiar tendencies, Mockingjay - Part I is a…

    Though everyone will talking about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I after this weekend, there's still some life left in the discussion surrounding Interstellar. Whether it's about the quality of the film (especially when it comes to the sound mix) or an astrophysicist like Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about the mysteries of the film's science, there's plenty to talk about. So how about we add some more fuel to the fire with Tyson talking about the science from the ending of the film (without spoiling the narrative side of things). And for an added bonus, there's also a SoundWorks…

    At one time, Smashed and The Spectacular Now director James Ponsoldt was going to adapt Matthew Quick's young adult novel Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. However, the project has switched hands and ended up in a surprising place as THR has learned that Channing Tatum will make his directorial debut with the film that follows the title character, a young man who heads out on his birthday with a gun in his backpack and a plan to kill his former best friend. However, he won't be alone because his producing partner Reid Carolin will co-direct the adaptation in addition to producing the film with…

    Early next year, we'll see Nicole Kidman get a little evil by kidnapping the talking bear Paddington, and on the complete other end of the spectrum, there's Strangerland, a haunting thriller about a woman whose teenage kids go missing on the eve of a massive dust storm in the small Australian desert town of Nathgari. As red dust and darkness covers the town, the locals, including police officer David Rae (Hugo Weaving) try to help, but it soon becomes apparent that something terrible may have happened to them, and that's when fingers are pointed, and the situation escalates pretty quickly.

    The best documentaries take a great subject and then get hit by lightning. You’re filming your movie and then, over the course of it, something incredible and magical happens that takes the story in a whole different way. For filmmaker Mami Sunada, unprecedented access into one of the most famous animation studios in the world, Studio Ghibli, was just the beginning. Things got very interesting when their most famous and revered filmmaker, Hayao Miyazaki, decided to announce his retirement. The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness is the result of that crazy story.

  • Why ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1′ Feels Like a Different Franchise [Movie Review]

    Germain Lussier
    21 Nov 2014 | 4:55 pm
    Note: This review was original published on November 10. We’ve bumped it up now that the film is in theaters.  It’s a shame The Hunger Games series gets filed into the “young adult” category. Sure, there’s some dystopian young romance in there, but with each subsequent film, the series proves it is about much more than unattainable love with sporadic action. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 takes the series to its furthest point from YA stereotypes yet. However, what’s most interesting about this latest installment — the first part of a two-part…

  • WTF: Weird ‘Jurassic World’ Teaser From Universal Spain: “Something Big Is Coming”

    21 Nov 2014 | 4:15 pm
    This promo video for Jurassic World is so odd that we thought it was a fake. Despite being hosted on the Universal Spain account, this short tease for the new film — labeled “something big is coming” — has none of the hallmarks of a legit promotion. There’s no studio logo, no URL for the official website that recently launched, and no movie title. Basically, it looks like a fan-made video that just happens to be hosted on an official studio account. Have a look at this low-key, weird Jurassic World teaser below. That is real, in the sense that it comes from a…

Why? Because while Obasi may not have had much to work with he's got plain old raw talent. We ran a review of the film yesterday and today we share the official trailer.

There would be panic, perhaps, were there any outlet for such an emotion but with the city on lockdown as water levels rise there is simply no opportunity for such a thing. Instead it brings with it anxiety of a sweaty, feral intensity and the sense that the entire city is simply stewing in its own sins and that those sins will soon consume all.Filipino blogger and critic Dodo Dayao makes his feature debut with Violator, a gorgeously executed and tightly controlled exercise in religious dread.

    Never separate a mother from her child. Sara is torn away from her daughter Jenny in the opening minutes of Feed the Light, a new film by Swedish director Henrik Möller that teeters between bad dreams and outright nightmares. Still furious, and learning that her ex-husband Jon has taken Jenny to an unmarked building, Sara gains access with her trusty knife -- and promptly finds herself in a job interview. The building is a subterranean world of long hallways and tiny offices and cramped rooms. As a puzzled Sara (Lina Sunden) answers a few brief questions from a straitlaced businesswoman…

Consider the official score the sum total of the three film experience. The Giver was the most depressing, and is hitting on Blu-Ray now (and with some nice bonuses), but the other two are as worthy of a pass as any films this year. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was basically everything you feared.

The story starts long before you imagined, with a young fairy who meets a young human thief. By way of impressive visuals, and surprisingly “normal” events, young Maleficent and Stefan become the best of friends. When Maleficent comes of age, she becomes the protector of her magical forest, which means when the King comes calling, and doesn’t fare well, she is the target of his rage. A now very ambitious Stefan sees an opportunity.

    Alan Bacchus
    30 Oct 2014 | 4:19 pm
    The Bard’s tale of the ambitious Scottish lord who with his wife conspire to take the throne of Scotland by hook or crook has always made for great cinema. It’s one of the more violent and action-packed of Shakespeare plays and through the eye of Roman Polanski, at the peak of his abilities, turns the story into a ruthless and bloody parable of ambition - a film even more resonant with the Charles Manson tragedy only a couple years behind this production.The Tragedy of Macbeth (1971) dir.

    If you were to simply describe the plot of Gillian Flynn’s pulpy bestseller it would come off as an outrageous Joe Eszterhas-style potboiler ripped from the era of early 90’s sexual thrillers. But when orchestrated by a master of the genre, at the top of his game, where other filmmakers would have made this picture into a sloppy ham-fisted mess, David Fincher makes two and half hours a completely engrossing experience, terrifying and witty in equal measure and self-aware enough not to take itself too seriously.Gone Girl (2014) dir.

    The influence of Fellini’s 8 ½ is clear in Bob Fosse’s own memoir-like fictional film. The story of a theatre director under immense pressure to make his next show a hit, while under the usual pressures of the business, told with a mixture of fantasy and realism is cut from the same mould as Fellini’s great picture. The creative evolution of Fosse’s work from 'Sweet Charity', 'Cabaret' and 'Lenny' seems to culminate in this overly ambitious yet invigorating explosion of cinema.All That Jazz (1979) dir.

    The Bresson brand of neo-realism is perhaps exemplified best with this unconventional character study of a Parisian thief desperately in need to self-fulfillment.

And besides, I’m not planning to write much about seeing this movie, other than the fact that I shared it with my 14-year-old for the first time, and the two of us had more fun than calculating the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow.

Here’s the fun thing about time travel movies, from the greats (Terminator 1 & 2, Back to the Future) to the lames (oh so many): they all can be picked apart. All of them. They all have paradoxes and continuity discrepancies and nitpicky scientific falsities. Time travel is silly and we all know it. But the ones that become great? The near-perfects?

He’s really quite good at all three jobs here, bringing a unique energy and plot structure - in which the story finds basically no conflict it needs to resolve after perhaps the 40-minute mark - to an unconventionally-told and creatively-rendered story. Which makes it all the more…

  • 'Better Angels’ review: Lincoln in black-and-white a la Malick

    By Mick LaSalle
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    “The Better Angels” has bursts of life — moving, poetic moments of a kind that you won’t find in any other film this year — but it can’t honestly be described as a success. A movie can’t be a success if it makes the audience wish it were over, and with this noble effort, the wishes start rising to heaven after about an hour. [...] the artistic question that hovers over the project is whether the Malick approach to filmmaking can be exported. Shot in black-and-white, the film tells the story of the Lincoln family, from their early days in Indiana, through the death of Abe’s…
  • 'Foxcatcher’ review: Too small for the epic treatment

    By Mick LaSalle
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    Inflating the tale beyond its natural scale only makes it feel trivial, like a fuss built around a minor incident. Miller applies the same treatment here to the story of eccentric millionaire John du Pont and the training facility he built in the late 1980s around the Schultz brothers, a pair of Olympic gold medalists in wrestling. If “Foxcatcher” has a saving grace (it doesn’t), it would be its performances, which are arresting enough to keep an audience rapt for the first hour. Steve Carell is especially striking as du Pont, a performance that mixes an imitation of the real du Pont…
  • 'Homesman’ review: You actually want to watch this boring movie

    By Mick LaSalle
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    The film occupies that peculiar space that many of us would prefer to believe doesn’t exist, a movie that’s worthy but often inert, by turns enriching and enervating: a good boring movie. The phrase “feminist Western” has been thrown around with regard to the film. Better to say “The Homesman,” based on a 1988 novel by Glendon Swarthout, is concerned with the struggles of women in the West. Hilary Swank plays Mary, a resourceful landowner and respected member of the community who gets along fine on her own but would really like to have a husband. In any case, Mary is not…
  • 'Rocks in My Pockets’ review: Brave, dark look at family history

    By David Lewis
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    The wildly imaginative “Rocks in My Pocket” isn’t your average foray into animation: The barrage of fantastical images and virtually nonstop voice-over make for a heavy-duty cinematic experience, but writer-director-animator-producer-narrator Signe Baumane adds a welcome dose of dark humor and redemption to make this intense ride worth going on. Signe, who suffers from her own bouts of depression, also discovers that three of her cousins are likewise dealing with mental illness. The talented Baumane is also somewhat off-putting as a narrator, though her powerful voice-over in the final…
  • 'Dumb and Dumber To’ review: What were they thinking?

    By Mick LaSalle
    13 Nov 2014 | 2:59 pm
    Either out of nostalgia, or a sense of loyalty, or some epic misreading of the script, or a payday beyond the dreams of most mere mortals, Carrey and Daniels agreed to appear in this ghastly sequel, which is more than just not funny. Directed by Bobby Farrelly and Peter Farrelly, who collaborated on the screenplay with four other people, “Dumb and Dumber To” gets off to an awful start that sets the tone for all that follows. Twenty years after their “Dumb and Dumber” adventures, Lloyd (Carrey) is catatonic and institutionalized, and Harry has been visiting him once a week for 20…

  • Representations of purgatory and limbo in popular culture

    22 Nov 2014 | 5:30 am
    In the Catholic tradition, purgatory is an afterlife destination reserved for souls who are ultimately bound for heaven. It is still a doctrine of the Catholic Church, despite confusion about its status. In 2007, the residing Pope Benedict XVI asked Church theologians to reconsider another Catholic afterlife destination: limbo. Limbo was traditionally thought to be on the “lip of hell” or the edge of heaven (hence the name limbo, which derives from the Latin limbus, for edge). Limbo was believed to be the final destination for the souls of unbaptized babies. The unsettling implications of…
  • Tiberius on Capri: in pursuit of vice or just avoiding mother?

    22 Nov 2014 | 3:30 am
    In AD 14, two thousand years ago this summer, the emperor Augustus, having dominated Rome for over forty years, finally breathed his last. The new emperor was his step-son Tiberius. While Augustus’ achievement in ending civil war and discreetly transforming a republic into one-man rule provokes grudging admiration even from those who aren’t keen on autocracy, Tiberius has very few fans. Suetonius’ biography, the third in his twelve Lives of the Caesars, offers some intriguing insights into why this might be. Tiberius Claudius Nero Caesar Descended from one of Rome’s most noble…
  • Windows on the past: how places get their names

    22 Nov 2014 | 1:30 am
    Standing underneath the monstrous Soviet statue of “Motherland Calls” looking out over the mighty Volga River, I could understand why the city should have been renamed, rather unimaginatively, Volgograd “City on the Volga”. Between 1925 and 1961 it had been called Stalingrad, and was site of one of the most ferocious battles in the Second World War. By 1925, Josef Stalin was the Communist Party General Secretary, and the trend to rename cities and towns in his honor had begun. Since he had been chairman of the local military committee which had organized the defense of…
  • The literature and history of Chaucer

    Catherine Fehre
    22 Nov 2014 | 12:30 am
    To read Chaucer today is, in some measure, to read him historically. For instance, when the poet tells us in the ‘General Prologue’ to the Canterbury Tales that the Knight’s crusading experiences include service with the Teutonic Order in ‘Lettow’ (i.e. Lithuania), comprehension of the literal sense or denotation of the text requires some knowledge of fourteenth-century institutions, ideas and events. More generally, discussions of whether the Knight’s crusading activities are being held up for approval or disapproval in the ‘General Prologue’ (i.e., of the text’s…

    In her new book, Amy DeRogatis explores a relatively untouched topic: evangelicals and sexuality. While many may think that evangelicals are anti-sex, DeRogatis argues that this could not be further from the truth. We sat down with the author of Saving Sex: Sexuality and Salvation in American Evangelicalism to learn more about her research into the topic. How did you become interested in this topic? My interest in this topic began when I was asked a question by a student in my Religion and Gender class at Michigan State University (MSU). In the course we had been reading a book that discussed…

  • Little things mean a lot: Micro-stylistics

    12 Nov 2014 | 8:11 am
    DB here: In The Sound of Fury (aka Try and Get Me!, 1951), Howard Tyler has drifted into crime under the guidance of a breezy sociopath. They commit a string of holdups, culminating in a kidnapping. Howard’s partner bashes in the skull of their young captive. Wandering drunk and despairing, Howard ends up in the apartment of Hazel, a lonely manicurist. As Howard lolls on the sofa, she turns away to switch off the radio. The next move is up to us. If we’re alert, we can spot, on the end table in the corner of the frame, a newspaper with a headline that may be announcing the police…

It began in a surprising way: It’s September, so why wouldn’t we start predicting an Oscar race that won’t finish for another five months? To be fair, Venice, Telluride, and the Toronto film festivals have all concluded. Many films have screened. Many films have connected with audiences, and a rough draft of the Oscar race is beginning to come into focus. Sure, no Academy member will even begin popping in those screener DVDs for another couple of months, but it’s still…
  • Say hello to GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE

    2 Nov 2014 | 6:44 pm
    DB here: Godard is making trouble again. Adieu au langage–known now as Goodbye to Language– is doing better in the US than any of his films have done in the last thirty-some years. It has a per-screen average of $13,500, which is about twice that attained by Ouija in its opening last weekend. But that average represents only two screens, and it’s going to be hard to expand because Goodbye to Language is in 3D. Many art houses would love to play it, but they lacked the money to upgrade to 3D during the big digital conversion of recent years. Even high-powered venues in New…

We’re definitely not trying to play down a movie’s originality by yawning and shrugging and murmuring “We’ve seen it all before.” Instead, as historians of film forms and styles, we’re interested in the ways that current movies reconfigure techniques that have been circulating across cinema history. A lot of those techniques involve…

Herewith a summary of several films I enjoyed this year.   Too clever by half Some films are obviously and thoroughly pretentious. This year Field of Dogs (Lech Majewski, 2014) fell into that category. I had had high hopes for it, since I very much liked Majewski’s The Mill & the Cross at the 2011 festival. Unfortunately, it’s a completely different film, overcomplicated and, for me, nearly unwatchable. Two…

The film, starring Nick Damici and Ethan Embry, is directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano and features a war veteran who is being forced into a slower lifestyle by his son. But, as fate would have it, that slower pace has to be put on the backburner to save the community. “Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous…

  • What Does God Sound Like?

    21 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Ridley Scott made an interesting decision for the voice of God, and it raises an important question. How would you depict God’s voice if you were making a movie? I was fascinated to hear of director Ridley Scott’s choice in his soon-to-released epic Exodus: Gods and Kings. Scott cast an 11-year-old British schoolboy to play the role. The director said the boy was chosen to ‘exude innocence and purity’. In the 1998 animated movie, The Prince of Egypt, each cast member whispered God’s lines, so that His voice ended up sounding like a symphony of various people.

According to reports, Officer Darren Wilson “is in the final stages of negotiations” with local officials over the terms of his resignation. Today, a grand jury will meet, likely for the last time, to determine if charges will be brought against Wilson in the Brown killing. Since the shooting, Wilson has said that he did nothing wrong.

    Dave Taylor
    11 Nov 2014 | 9:34 pm
    Cinema can explore the most intimate of topics or the grandest, and sometimes the stories can be connected in surprising ways. How much difference is there between our relationship to each other and our relationship with the universe after all? It’s the intersection between these two core stories that makes Interstellar one of the most powerful films of 2014 and one of the best science fiction films of a very long time. The film is set in a dismal near future where horrendous dust storms decimate food and humankind is dying for something to eat. Wheat has died from blight, then the…
  • Review: Cantinflas

    Dave Taylor
    2 Nov 2014 | 6:37 pm
    I love the 1956 film Around the World in Eighty Days, a remarkable travelogue of a film by first-time producer Michael Todd, based on the terrific Jules Verne book of the same name. My kids have seen it multiple times too, and it’s become a family favorite with its action, adventure, dancing, romance and beautiful world-hopping story. One of the very best parts of the film is the manservant Passepartout, played by the popular Mexican actor Cantinflas. But who was Cantinflas? That’s what the 2014 art house biopic Cantinflas sets out to explore. Primarily in subtitled Spanish,…
  • Review: LFO

    28 Oct 2014 | 9:55 am
    Some films lend themselves to the constraints of indie films with their lower budgets, slower pace and generally more claustrophobic sensibility. You can’t create Transformers or Inception on a shoestring. Fortunately, LFO is one of the indie films where it all really works perfectly, offering up a dark, twisted and wry sci-fi parable for our times. LFO tells the story of Robert (Patrik Karlson), a reclusive and troubled sound engineer who creates a hypnotic sound wave that instantly puts people into a passive, hyper-suggestive state when heard. But Robert is a twisted and bitter guy…

    War is inherently cinematic. The stark comparison between good and bad, the grey areas of moral or amoral behavior, the stripping away of the thin veneer of civilization and civilized behavior, and the historical replay — or reinvention — of heinous situations. It’s no wonder that for any given war there are dozens if not hundreds of films. No war has been covered more thoroughly than World War II, however, with its deep and profound impact on all peoples and all corners of the globe. The grand sweep of the war has been covered effectively before, but it’s the ability…
  • Review: Dracula Untold

    13 Oct 2014 | 7:04 pm
    While the popular mythology of vampires seems to be all sparkly and romantic (to wit, the banal Twilight series) the creatures themselves have a darker past, tapping into a mythic, archetypal fear of things that stir in the dark. Modern beliefs stem from 1890’s author Bram Stoker and his sensational book Dracula, but the myth is widely believed to have been based on the life of 15th Century nobleman Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia and member of the House of Draculesti. A bloodthirsty and vicious soldier, he was dubbed Vlad the Impaler for his habit of impaling his enemies on stakes,…

Pearl Harbor, the Rape of Nanking, the bad KARATE KID sequels and some other disagreeable episodes that the Chinese and the Koreans and the Filipinos won't soon forget.Why would Japan, this sequestered, homogeneous nation of rigid, militaristic fanatics who elevated their Emperor Hirohito to the level of god, come to…

Still, it's got a sinister edge to it that I think still comes across.The production was considered the utmost in anti-Christian blasphemy and sacrilege in its day.

As the holiday movie season nears, all rumors and speculation point to December being the month chosen for this all important unveiling. What’s differed from report to report, however, is just how Disney and Lucasfilm intend to premiere this most hotly anticipated trailer.

    It’s been a long road to production for the fifth installment of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The most recent film, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, may have been the least successful at the domestic box office, but with a worldwide gross of more than $1 billion, there was little doubt that the Mouse House would do anything it could to have Johnny Depp set sail once more. With its eye on a summer 2017 release date, the new film – currently known as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – will see Depp and co-star Geoffrey Rush…

    Even before The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1hit theaters, Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer was making headlines (pun intended) when an under-shave haircut for the film pushed her character – Capitol filmmaker-turned-rebel, Cressida – to the forefront of the new characters being introduced in the third installment. However, as indicated by her continued outspoken views on the need for “gender irrelevancy” in the TV/Movie industry, Dormer herself may frown upon the fact her character’s hairdo was the dominant topic of the conversation.

    When planting your blanket and umbrella, please remember about high tide: The search for Earth 2 commences in INTERSTELLAR. Here’s the dilemma: I saw Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey when I was twelve years old, and to say it was a formative experience is an understatement. The film fundamentally changed the way I thought about science fiction, narrative story-telling, and the nature of film itself. Not that I was cognizant of all of that at the time — I was twelve fer chrissake — but something in that film set the switch that eventually led to the obsessive…

Daniel Radcliffe plays Ig, a man (yes, man — we’re a long way from Hogwart’s) whose status within his small town after he’s accused of murdering his girlfriend isn’t at all helped once he starts growing a very Satanic pair of horns on his head.

Besides, I’m 98% Coca-Cola anyway, so what am I griping about? Check the video out below.

  • Why John Candy Passed on GHOSTBUSTERS Role (GeekTyrant)
    22 Nov 2014 | 12:12 pm
    There are a lot of “what if” moments in Hollywood in which certain characters could have been played by completely different actors. For example, Tom Selleck almost played Indiana Jones and Will Smith almost played Neo in The Matrix. In an interview with EW, Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman revealed that John Candy was up for the part of Louis Tully, who ended up being played by Rick Moranis. Candy didn't take the part because apparently he just didn’t get it. “He didn't like the treatment that I had sent. He didn't get it. He said, ‘Well, maybe if I played him as a…
  • FX Developing FROM HELL - Jack the Ripper TV Series (GeekTyrant)
    22 Nov 2014 | 12:11 pm
    The FX network is developing a drama event series based on the Jack the Ripper inspired graphic novel From Hell. The project was adapted into a feature film back in 2001, and it starred Johnny Depp. That film was pretty disappointing. The graphic novel comes from the minds of Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, and was released as a comic series from 1989 to 1996. It will be adapted by David Arato, who wrote Children of Men. Thankfully the Hughes Brothers aren’t involved this time around. They directed the first movie. From Hell tells the story of Jack the Ripper with "the…
  • See a Very Christopher Walken-y Captain Hook in PETER PAN LIVE Trailers (GeekTyrant)
    22 Nov 2014 | 12:10 pm
    Two new trailers have been released for NBC’s Peter Pan Live, and when Christopher Walken says, “Who’s the greatest villain of all time,” I just couldn’t help but bust up laughing! It’s almost like he’s doing a parody of himself for the role of Captain Hook. I love the dramatic, off-beat pauses. Since this is supposed to be a live event, the footage you’ll see in the trailer was taken from a dress rehearsal for the show. After watching this trailer, I have to see this thing. Following in the footsteps of the phenomenally successful “The Sound of Music Live!”…

    Peter Segal is set to direct a new film being developed at Disney called Goblins. The project is based on a children’s book called Goblins! A Survival Guide and Fiasco in Four Parts, which was written by Ari Berk and illustrated by Brian Froud. Froud is a Hugo-winning artist who worked as Jim Henson’s conceptual designer on Labyrinth and Dark Crystal.There’s no word on if the film will be fully animated, live-action, or a combination of both. Tom Astle and Matt Ember are writing the script, and it has the potential to be a great film. After all, who doesn’t like a bunch of crazy nasty…

When news hit of a sequel, we could not be more excited about it. Now the first trailer has hit for the film, which will mark the delightful Elizabeth Banks' directorial debut. Banks appeared as the hilarious Gale in the first film and was also on a producer. Her charm, intelligence and great comedic timing should prove to be real assets to the directing game and I hope this will be the first of many endeavors for her.

    When the wonderful Aaron Sorkin wrote a script for a Steve Jobs biopic, we knew it would attract a lot of talent to the production. David Fincher was set to direct, then departed. Another accomplished director in the form of Danny Boyle stepped up to the plate. Then the actor that would play the subject of the film kept transforming, starting with Leonardo DiCaprio, to Christian Bale and more recently, Michael Fassbender. Despite talented people sprouting up in the place of those who kept departing, the endless shuffle was apparently too much for Sony Pictures, as they have…

    Katniss Everdeen has gone through an interesting journey so far in the Hunger Games saga. Strangely, she has often been the victim of circumstance – constantly trying to adjust as things swirl further out of her control. In Catching Fire (2013) she entered the games again, being used (along with Peeta) as an instrument of oppression by the Capitol and the evil President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Anyone find it ironic that the major theme – freedom against control and dictatorship – is told through a billion dollar franchise with marketing and merchandizing coming out of the wazoo? Just…

    The Theory of Everything depicts the relationship between renowned physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) and his first wife, Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones). It is based on a book by Jane Hawking entitled Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen. Contrary to what you might perceive a Stephen Hawking film to be like, this is not a biographical film about Stephen. He is half the story, as it tells the meeting of two people who fall in love and marry despite huge obstacles. The film starts off in 1963 when Stephen is a grad student at Cambridge. He meets Jane at a party and their…

    Isolation can be torture. Loneliness can be it’s own form of insanity. And if someone is forced into solitary confinement and threatened with physical harm for the crime of daring to broadcast a completely true news report, that torment can threaten one’s sanity. A real life example of this is brought to us by whip smart comedian Jon Stewart in the new film Rosewater. Gael Garcia Bernal shines as Maziar Bahari, a reporter for Newsweek magazine who returns home to Iran to cover their first “democratic” elections. He stays with his stoic mother (Shohreh Aghdashloo) and…

If he was somebody’s dad, he was usually a right guy, even if he was humorless.

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:52 pm
    The rebooted Planet Of The Apes movies may be surprisingly good, but, based on their weird titles, it’s a bit hard to tell them apart. Does a dawn come before a rise or does a rise come before a dawn? Either way, the problem is only going to get worse when 20th Century Fox comes out with a yet-untitled third entry in the series. If Andy Serkis—who plays lead monkey Caesar—gets his way, though, it’s probably going to get significantly more confusing before the series reaches an actual reboot of the original Planet Of The Apes movie.

It’s based on an original story written by Lucas, but he’s almost certainly not involved at all beyond that—which means it’s OK to like it, Internet.The…

I Would Only Rob Banks For My Family, based on a Texas Monthly article by Skip Hollandsworth, tells the true story of an ordinary Texas family that secretly robbed banks in its spare time.

    By Loren Mc Clain They say making the first million is hard, but what about your first billion dollars? How difficult is that to make? Well, in just a year’s time Riot Games’ revenue boomed from a mere (and I’m using that term loosely) $624 million to just a few million shy of $1 billion. Thanks in large part to the focused player-centered philosophy in managing League of Legends. As a free-to-play model, League offers a depth of strategy that keeps players coming back. An estimated 27 million individuals are said to log into League every day, and if that wasn’t shocking enough,…

There is no sense denying or trying to fight it.  These instincts have evolved over thousands of years and become hardwired in men’s brains.  Attempts to change things at this point would be futile.

    17 Oct 2014 | 8:22 am
    THE WHO: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts and Jaeden Lieberher in a film directed by Ted Melfi. THE WHAT: Vincent (Murray) is a broke, drunken, gambling war veteran retiree who finds himself recruited by his new in-over-her-head, single-mom neighbor, Maggie (McCarthy), to watch over her small yet mature 12-year-old son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). THE BIG DEAL: I’ll be honest, I don’t follow Bill Murray, the meme, the way most people do. At some point, he became a hipster hero for both his choice in film roles and his offscreen antics–like wedding crashing. For…
  • Kim Gordon Breaks The Silence with New Memoir

    14 Oct 2014 | 10:06 am
    Sonic Youth lovers, mark those calendars for February 25. Kim Gordon’s long awaited memoir has finally been granted a release date that will surely shake off February’s winter blues. While “Girl in a Band: A Memoir” promises to look at all aspects of Gordon’s life – from childhood to her latest music project, Body/Head – the book will also explore the idea of partnership: what it means, and more so, “what happens when it dissolves,” says the press release. Presumably, alluding to the end of Gordon’s 27- year marriage with former Sonic Youth bandmate, Thurston…

    Chris Pratt is officially signed on to play Cowboy Ninja Viking in the movie. The story revolves around a counter-intelligence unit of Multiple Personality Disorder patients (that just sounds like they’re asking for trouble). Headed up by psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, these patients are transformed into agents known as Triplets (a reference to the three different personalities inside their minds). The unit eventually falls apart (surprise) and most of its members are turned into hired killers. Duncan, a Triplet who channels the skills of a Cowboy, Ninja, and Viking, is sent to…

    If you are after well executed, slick and polished action movie, John Wick delivers it all. John Wick gets us into the underworld that exists beneath society where legendary hitman John Wick made a deal with mafia and escaped to a happy life with his lovely wife. But young Russian punk liked John’s near-flawless 1969 Mustang and decided that he can take it from him with the final gift of his wife. Of cause this little freak has no idea whom he has wronged and just accidentally put himself in the way of Wick’s odyssey of vengeance. Movie has a pleasantly surprising comic book-style…

    With "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" opening this weekend, box office watchers are wondering if it will be the year's biggest movie. Lionsgate is projecting a wide range between $130 million and $150 million for 4,151 screens in North America. Analysts say it could be much bigger and in fact one of the five biggest openings of all time. It should hold on to the top spot at the box office for at least three weeks before "Exodus: Gods and Kings" opens on December 12.

  • Interstellar

    17 Nov 2014 | 2:00 am
    Interstellar is the latest conceptual tour-de-force from Christopher Nolan, in which he traverses the scientific mysteries of deep space, while grounding his story in themes of love, family, and human perseverance. Although Nolan borrows from the likes of Kubrick, Tarkovsky, Ridley Scott, and others, Interstellar feels original and daring in its own right, as perhaps the first major feature film to reliably tackle 21st Century theories of astrophysics.

    The wisdom of the elderly is priceless, but when your elderly babysitter owes money to loan sharks, the bank, and even to his own pregnant stripper/prostitute girlfriend, take the wisdom with a grain of salt. In St. Vincent, an unkempt, strapped-for-cash man becomes an unlikely babysitter and role model to a kid struggling to adapt to his new school. While certainly not the most original plot, St. Vincent finds its own stride and offers a satisfying spat of gags amongst some exceptional performances.

Undoubtedly, Liam Neeson is always a delight to watch and same is the case in A Walk among the Tombstone. However, sadly the script did not live up to his appeal. But nonetheless, it’s a movie that will prove a treat for all who love Neeson in his action avatar. So, the movie starts with depicting a terrible day for Scudder…

    "Domo arigato Mr. Roboto!" Matt and Mark review the Verhoeven classic, Robocop, a move that spawned a franchise that continues to this day. As usual, Verhoeven transcends the sci-fi high-concept and makes a prescient film packed with big ideas served it up with a beautiful does of satirical humor. Robocop's future is our present, a cornerstone of the cyberpunk zeitgeist, not only with its predictions of man/machine technologies, but also with its notions of politics and our exploitative media culture.Download: 139 Robocop

    Matt and Mark's Halloween movie marathon "The horror... the horror... " concludes this week with the the titular 1978 classic by John Carpenter. A definitive slasher film if there ever was one, John Carpenter uses minimalism to his advantage with "now you see him/now you don't" camera shots that highlight paranoia and dread. The masked Michael Meyers is what Dr. Loomis dubbed the embodiment of evil, however a more fearful notion still is that Michael Meyers has decoupled from a human soul so completely, "good and evil" no longer hold meaning.

    19 Oct 2014 | 10:10 pm
    Our penultimate pick for our October "The horror... The horror.." marathon is the cult classic 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. A film that adds family life to the derangement of your standard slasher-killer horror film standby, TTCM is the inspiration for arguably better fair such as Rob Zombie's House of a 1000 Corpses. Sadly, most of the film is consumed in tedious chase scenes and waits until its last 20 minutes to truly reveal is genius. Worth a watch none-the-less.Download: 137 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Matt retells his childhood clown trauma while Mark patiently listens, trying to provide healing.  Why are these clowns so creepy? Partly, its the monster movie in reverse.

A minimalist fright-fest, gone are the typical gory tropes of traditional film horror, instead replaced by a meta-foreboding that will make you jump at the site of grainy old school television sets and the shrill ring of land line phones. Matt and Mark ponder Sadako's curse in the age of Youtube and wonder if its possible to curse an entire  planet.Download: 135 Ringu (Ring)

    Ryne Barber
    19 Nov 2014 | 9:25 am
    Not one to skimp on visual gags involving popular culture, Family Guy has had a huge number of references to horror throughout its 13-season run. One of those was an entire episode devoted to parodying Poltergeist, which hit most of the jokes right on the nose with straight-out-of-the-film jabs. In one of the more recent episodes of Family Guy, last week’s “Brian the Closer,” the show offered up another punchline riffing on horror, this time the slasher genre specifically. Jason has, of course, shown up before in similar gags. But this episode, where Brian gets his teeth…
  • Godzilla: Cataclysm #3 | Comic Review

    Ryne Barber
    19 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    Cullen Bunn’s Godzilla: Cataclysm has so far pumped out a lot of kaiju action, and that’s not a terrible thing with a series such as this because most of us are probably tuning in to see Godzilla stomp some tail anyway. The first two issues, however, lacked a plot to bind the action together, and the abundance of monsters just highlighted the fact that Bunn was giving us a post-apocalyptic world but not exploring it to its potential. In Godzilla: Cataclysm #3, the plot takes a more prominent turn, with a heavier emphasis on dialogue along with the obvious monster wars that the…

    Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings is not a particularly good movie, and that has little to do with the overshadowing of its predecessor or the fact that this movie has nothing to do with the first one besides the titular character. There was always that feeling in Stan Winston’s first film that he was treading a line between realism and the overly fantastical, but Pumpkinhead as a symbol of revenge was effective enough, thanks to Lance Henriksen and the way Winston directed the death sequence of his little boy, where the sight of a man in a 9-foot monster costume morphed into something much…

Then, I’m joined by my old friend and podcasting partner Mr Ian Loring for a full and frank review of the movie. Subscribe to the…

    (Warning! Huge amounts of spoilers contained within! Tread lightly!) I think at this point it’s safe to assume Greg Weisman is as important to super hero toons as Bruce Timm is. And that’s saying a lot since Timm redefined DC entertainment on TV with his first super hero toon Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995). Since then he’s created, Batman Beyond, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Green Lantern just to name a few.

I had seen the trailer for Premature this past spring and thought it looked absolutely hilarious.

Other entries were Red Riding Hood (2011), Snow White And The Huntsman (2012), Hansel And Gretal: Witch Hunters (2013) and Jack And The Giant Slayer (2013).

  • Late Phases (2014) Review

    22 Nov 2014 | 11:25 am
    Late Phases is by no means a perfect film. But at its heart theres a moving and fantastic lead performance from Nick Damici (writer of the 2013 remake We Are What We Are). And the film casts a hypnotic spell over the viewer due in no small part to the uniqueness of being a horror flick with a lead character old enough to be living in a retirement village. No 20something stars of the CW Its bold Ill give it that. The journey through Crescent Bay (the fictional community of the film) offered by Late Phases is worth your time but fair warning the ride is far from smooth.

    Starry Eyes arrived out of the blue... or black. One day no one had heard of the film the next our inboxes were inundated with press releases. So why the major push from Dark Sky Because Starry Eyes is a horrifying expedition into the darker recesses of both the mind and the Hollywood lifestyle. Its a powerful picture that drops all the eggs in the character basket and forces any aspiring thespian to question their true ambitions and what mortifying realities may wait. Dark and savage depressing and grim Starry Eyes is exactly the kind of horror film that serious horror buffs are going to…

But they havent invested the energy time or passion to find the right people for the job. Seek out the great filmmakers and remarkable screenwriters to make these films successful. It can work. But it wont as long as Universal is content being lazy and dumping confused CGIheavy junk on the fans who are steadiily losing faith in the company.

    19 Nov 2014 | 8:20 am
    When Mannequin is at its best, it makes one forget about its worst. There’s a lot of weak writing–and some strong writing–and director Gottlieb is terrible with actors. What’s so strange about his inability to direct them (most visible with Carole Davis) is how well other performances turn out. Both James Spader and G.W. Bailey are playing, at best, thinly written buffoon roles, but both of them are entirely committed and it leads to some successes. The film gets off to a rocky start–after a nice animated opening credits sequence–because Gottlieb…

Once the director–Arthur Hiller took his name off, amusingly not as a publicity stunt but because of writer Joe Eszterhas–and Eszterhas’s script establish the rather paltry quality of the plot and the jokes, it never changes. It’s unrelentingly misguided, mean-spirited, misogynistic (but Eszterhas identifies all the females–except Whoopi Goldberg–as feminists, so it must be all right) and not funny.

    The Devil’s Backbone takes place at an orphanage during the Spanish Civil War (in Spain, obviously). The film follows Fernando Tielve as he arrives and has conflicts with the other boys, before everything gets worked out. For about half the film, one of the other boys, Íñigo Garcés, is the antagonist. But everything with the boys is basically a misunderstanding and, in the second half, the film introduces the real villain. There’s also a ghost, some political unrest, unrequited love between the school doctor and the headmistress, lust, greed and an unexploded bomb. Director del…

Miller’s style is generic, competent important mainstream filmmaking.

  • The Drop Review

    19 Nov 2014 | 2:34 pm
    The good guy in the middle of this gritty milieu is Bob, played with a convincing Brooklyn accent by Tom Hardy. Bob is a quiet, mild-mannered and seemingly uneducated guy who gets by working at Cousin Marv's Bar, a dive bar run by his actual cousin Marv (James Gandolfini). Like many bars in Brooklyn – in this film anyway – Cousin Marv's has been taken over by Chechen gangsters who use it as a drop point for large sums of cash. Bob's simple life gets a whole lot more complicated when Cousin Marv's is held up by two gunmen and the Chechen's money is stolen. This brings him to the attention…

    The film focuses on Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a former test pilot and astronaut currently eking out a living as a corn farmer in a near future where food supplies are severely depleted and humanity is on the brink of extinction. Cooper is an old-fashioned dreamer, disheartened by society's lack of ambition and complete abandonment of science. "We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars", he bemoans, "Now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt." He lives on his farm with his two children: teenage son Tom (Timothee Chalamat) and young daughter Murph…
  • The Imitation Game Review

    9 Nov 2014 | 6:17 am
    Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Turing, who is here presented as a typical movie genius: exceptionally intelligent and unerringly rational but often cold, callous and socially awkward. He's dedicated to his work but has little time for his colleagues; a team handpicked by the military to crack the Enigma code, who are all alienated by Turing's perceived intellectual superiority. While they work on cracking the Nazi's code by hand, day by day, in a mission that is essentially impossible, Turing holes away on his own, relentlessly and methodically assembling a machine that will crack the Nazi's…

    The  Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 by Hope Madden What makes the Hunger Games franchise so much stronger than the rest of the adolescent lit series out there? Perhaps more than anything – more than a compelling hero’s quest, more than the peril and drama, more than director Francis Lawrence’s eye for action and sense of pacing – it’s that each new film expands the profound talent in this pool of actors. The great Julianne Moore joins ranks that include 2-time Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson, consummate bad guy Donald Sutherland, genius character actors Jeffrey Wright, Jena…

    New Zealand has a distinguished history in horror-comedy (well, as distinguished as that category gets). Long before Hobbits and dragons, kiwi Peter Jackson filled New Zealand cinemas with laughs and screams while covering their screens in blood and body fluids. The torch has been passed to Gerard Johnstone, whose Housebound releases for home viewing today. A funny, clever, heart-racing horror flick about a potentially haunted house, it’s among the very best of the genre released this year. Naturally, you’ll want to pair this with something from Jackson’s goofy, bloody past. May we…

A that guy among that guys, Simmons has appeared in scores of films and dozens of TV shows – sometimes simultaneously – and he’s never turned in a mediocre performance. Perhaps the most reliable character actor of all time, Simmons finally gets a role that will no doubt draw Oscar attention with Whiplash. He plays Terence Fletcher, the meanest, most abusive professor at the finest music conservatory in New York. Miles Teller plays the driven young drummer taking the lion’s share of his torment at…

    Rosewater by Hope Madden It should probably come as no surprise that Jon Stewart has keen instincts for telling a tale about journalistic integrity, witness bearing and global politics. It is perhaps even less shocking to find that he can weave wry humor into the most unexpected places, or that his insights are sharp and his material is smart. His directorial debut Rosewater recounts journalist Maziar Bahari’s story of capture and captivity during protests following Iran’s 2009 presidential election. The always wonderful Gael Garcia Bernal plays Bahari with the perfect mix of wisdom,…

  • Explore a cold and empty void – Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

    John Underwood
    7 Nov 2014 | 4:07 am
    Somewhere between The Dark Knight and Inception Christopher Nolan became the people’s auteur. Walking the tightrope between critical dismissal and commercial unviability with near-impeccable balance, he’s mastered the art of making philosophical action flicks – or, if you prefer, thinky films that just happen to have a lot of things blowing up. Interstellar ought to be the apotheosis of this form, combining musings on the nature of spacetime and reality with rockets, wormholes and a classically Spielbergian family drama. Unfortunately, what it actually is is 169 minutes of nonsense.

But religious freedom, dogs and those Anonymous masks are all shit, so why not read about people getting set on fire instead? It’s seasonal, and getting set on fire is way cooler than being honey-trapped by Natalie Portman in a tutu. Here’s our top 10 flaming film characters. #10 – Mrs White (Clue)…

    Eli Andersen
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:55 am
    With a gradual build and little to nothing in the way of sudden movements, Kelly Reichardt has quietly announced herself as one of the best filmmakers living today. Capturing the fringes of society with hypnotic grace and a confidence in subtlety that demands close attention, she has created a small but remarkably strong body of work that is uniform in its quality. Reichardt continues to impress with Night Moves, her latest and most conventional film to date. It seems almost perverse that the midpoint of Reichardt’s new film is marked by something as crass and undignified as an explosion.

One of the most impoverished areas in the United States, Pine Ridge is both monument to a Native American past riddled with governmental injustice and home to a generation of young men and women whose cultural identity is slipping further and further away.

    Yesterday, the guys over at Schmoes Know got the scoop that Paramount is looking at Casino Royale & Green Lantern director Martin Campbell to direct their untitled G.I.Joe three-quel. This comes after G.I.Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu left the project to focus on Masters of the Universe which he also left for Jem: and The Holograms. It should be noted that Martin Campbell hasn't actually directed anything since 2011's Green Lantern which was panned by fans and critics alike.The directors reps have yet to respond to the request so nothing is set in stone regarding him taking on the…

    20 Nov 2014 | 10:20 am
    While promoting the DVD & Blu-Ray release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Andy Serkis reveals to MTV News that while it's not set in stone the series may be longer then just three films: “To be honest, it’s very, very early in where we choose to drop our anchor in the next film, so it could be five years after the event. It could be the night after the events of where we left ‘Dawn,’ so it’s very difficult to know where the story is going right at this moment because it’s being written as we speak. It might be three films. It could be four. It could be five. Who knows?

The rebels are led by President Coin (Julianne Moore) and Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who use Catflaps as their “Mockingjay”, videoing her surveying the atrocities cause by Snow’s governments to rally the people of the thirteen districts to their cause.

Once he was just a funny name, but now he’s the go-to guy for playing real people with great intelligence and rubbish social skills. And dragons, obviously.  In The Imitation Game, Cumberbatch plays Alan Turing, the mathematician who led a team of codebreakers to crack the Nazi’s Enigma code during World War II, before being persecuted for his homosexuality and eventually driven to suicide by the British government.

    The late James Gandolfini stars alongside Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace, in this engaging crime drama about a Brooklyn bartender (Hardy) whose bar is robbed and also finds a beaten dog in a bin. Tough week. The Drop revolves around Hardy’s magnetic performance, as quietly intense and interesting as we’ve come to expect from the versatile actor. His character is like a Brooklyn version of Rocky Balboa, with his slightly dumb likability and reluctant toughness, not to mention his lovely dog. His relationship with Rapace’s character is a faint glimpse of hope in a world of…

Louis’s initially charming persona plays to Gyllenhaal’s nice guy image, but gradually transforms into one of cinema’s great psychopaths. As he gets to know those around him he shifts from an affable and enthusiastic young man into an incredibly ruthless and forceful businessman that none of them can get in the way of, prepared to exploit any weakness to his own ends.

    21 Nov 2014 | 12:24 pm
    In an industry that is focused on spitting out a new biographical movie about Johnny Cash every 15 minutes, it’s hard to find a biographical movie about someone I’d actually like to watch. All that changed when I saw “Theory of Everything” a movie based on the life of Stephen Hawking. Starring Eddie Redmayne (“Les Misérables”) and Felicity Jones (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″), this film follows the life of the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. But it’s not all math and earth shattering scientific theory. Instead, there’s a love story thrown in when…

    I watched this movie for one reason. To find out what the ‘6’ means. I was pretty sure that this wasn’t a sixth sequel, as I’d never heard of Big Hero’s 1 through 5.Turns out, it was the name of the team. This movie is set in the futuristic town of San Fransokyo. Two orphaned brothers, Hiro (voiced by Ryan Potter) is and Tadashi (Daniel Henney), have their own obsession with science. Hiro is into creating robots for robot fights whole Tadashi is more into design and brainiac concepts. Of course, in standard Disney manner, disaster strikes leaving Hiro all by is lonesome,…

    Six years before Warner Bros. announced they were making Batman vs Superman, there was a fictional logo placed in the world of I Am Legend, in which the famous comic book series was being adapted to film. So, why was that? Did director Francis Lawrence know the studio had plans to make a interconnected DC Universe on film before Marvel even made Iron Man? Sort of, but not really. “The reason that it was there is that the producer and writer of I Am Legend, Akiva Goldsman, actually wrote an early, early [draft of Batman v Superman],” Lawrence told Collider. “And I’m going…

The entire soundtrack is exceptional, but one scene, and one track specifically, stood out to people in the film–the docking scene. Unfortunately the track was not available in the Star Wheels Constellation edition (16 tracks) nor the Digital Deluxe edition (23 tracks) of the soundtrack. It may be included in the Illumination Star Projection edition (28 tracks), which releases in late December, but according to the…

    Happy Ending takes a jibe at the cheesy romcoms, breaking away from the rhetoric at times while still giving in to the same rhetoric many a times. Despite the aberrations, it's the kind of film I wouldn't mind watching again. It's witty, often refreshing and effortlessly manages to keep you involved.I Hate Luv Storys tried a similar spin, spoofing romcoms, but failed miserably. It's too insignificant to even merit a comparison with this one.Saif Ali Khan here is pitch-perfect as Yudi. He balances minimal dialogues just as well as letting expressions take over, when required. Most times, he…

Or is it just me? Our blue-blood royal Prince Vikram Singh Rathore (Fawad Khan) impressively pulls off every bit of his act with swooning flair and restrained dignity.Their chemistry is…

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

As a fan of the book series first and foremost, I watch the films with a critical eye toward adaptation. The Hunger Games impressed me, and Catching Fire even more so. I was anxious to see if Mockingjay…

Here is a brief history of his short lived career as a director. On the set of Blade RunnerNominated for five Academy Awards over the course of his career, Douglas Trumbull is what the film industry often refers to as a special effects wizard.  The son of visual effects maestro Donald Trumbull, best known for the photographic effects of 1939’s timeless The Wizard of Oz, Douglas Trumbull began work in animation and graphic arts for a short film called To the Moon and Beyond.  With it,…

    Who’s that girl? It’s not Jess, it’s not even Norma, it’s the men Miss Shearer seemed to gather around her in almost every film role. In her Pre-code performances Shearer is not relegated to a supportive role nor is she doomed to a one-dimensional outlook or perpetually unalterable journey. In most cases she is in a constant struggle between a life of sexual and emotional liberation and an existence of a conventional wife and mother. Some might say in even a ‘soulful’ or ‘brooding’ manner. Her adventures through films from 1929 to 1934 are constantly peppered by the standard…

    13 Aug 2014 | 5:23 pm
    Touted by Paramount Pictures in 1932 at the “New Dietrich”, Sari Maritza was as beautiful, exotic and captivating as her acting counterpart but without the dedication and longevity. Maritza was a Paramount acquisition groomed and educated like no other with the company’s executives waiting months before committing her to a picture. However, this highly anticipated and talented actress only appeared in pictures for four years, retiring to engross herself in her many and sadly short-lived marriages. Like so many Hollywood hopefuls, despite talent, good-looks and the backing of a large…

Did he have any training before beginning acting or was he simply a natural performer?      Stone: George was friendly with Texas Guinan, a famous cabaret hostess of the time and partner with mobster Larry Fay in the El Fey Club.  (The pair were later immortalized, if somewhat fictionally, as Eddie Bartlett and Panama Smith in The Roaring Twenties, played respectively by James Cagney…

    24 Jul 2014 | 12:25 am
    In 1999 when the AFI released their 100 years…100 stars list of the top 50 greatest screen legends, most mainstream leading ladies and men were accounted for. They included Bogart – the dramatic actor, Cagney – the gangster, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly – the musical stars, Charlies Chaplin, Buster Keaton and The Marx Brothers – the comedians and Kirk Douglas, Marlon Brando and Sydney Poitier – the new age. But I think every avid classic film fan has at least one or two objections to the list. For me I like to imagine George Raft has place 51. He was as accomplished an actor as…

    Thomas Winward
    21 Nov 2014 | 8:01 am
    The road of the motherless child is long and hard. So is the process of watching Hitch Hike, a short film about a teenage boy hitching a lift to find his birth mother. Although writer and director Matthew Saville’s story has the potential to be a powerful message that touches on a very real social issue, he shoots far too wide of the mark for any meaningful impact. New Zealand is a beautiful country, and Saville is keen to show it off. Long, lingering shots of the antipodean countryside make for a beautiful viewing experience. The film is confidently crafted across all technical elements,…
  • The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt. 1 Focuses on Worldbuilding

    Alistair Ryder
    21 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    As much as I love movies, I’m completely against the franchise bandwagon. Every time I hear about a movie I love having a successful opening weekend at the box office I get a sense of impending dread that they are going to ruin my memories of it with a plethora of inferior sequels. Even though I grew up on the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings franchises, both the books and the films, I’m not feeling nostalgia so much as cynicism whenever a prequel is announced or released. The Hunger Games is notable for being the only blockbuster franchise where I actually care more with each…

    “These men who bust their asses work like dogs. And I believe in them, but every day they hurt. They get old, they peel back… There’s no frontier anymore.” These words uttered by the titular character, played by a never-better Nicolas Cage, in David Gordon Green’s 2013 film Joe conjure a feeling shared by numerous American Independent films as of late: The western is dead and in its place are films about real people not trying to chase the American Dream, but rather simply trying to make it along without stumbling.

  • The Beginner’s Guide: Paul Thomas Anderson, Writer/Director

    Jay Ledbetter
    20 Nov 2014 | 4:00 am
    Stories are built around characters. No matter how complex and fascinating a narrative may be, the only way to make people care is by implanting interesting characters to whom we can relate, root for, loathe, or sympathize with. Character creation is a skill that too few filmmakers possess today. But if there is one master of character building, it is Paul Thomas Anderson. More than any other writer/director today, Anderson is able to create worlds and characters that completely absorb the viewer. There is something about being a writer and director that can make a good script even greater…

  • Movie Review: Listen Up Philip (2014)

    16 Nov 2014 | 8:19 am
    by Tony Dayoub One of my favorite comedies of the year is the gloriously misanthropic Listen Up Philip. Sadly, I missed it while it was playing at this year's New York Film Festival because it screened the day after my flight back home. But it's now playing on VOD and opened here in Atlanta (at the Plaza Theater) this past Friday. Jason Schwartzman plays what might be the douchiest among his repertoire of arrogant, self-absorbed characters. Promising young novelist Philip Lewis Friedman is someone who looks for any way to sabotage the great things he has going for him. He's the kind of jerk…
  • Movie Review: Big Hero 6 (2014)

    6 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    by Tony Dayoub The idea of Disney exploiting its newly acquired Marvel properties for an animated film is a great on its face. The first of these films, but hardly its last I believe, is Big Hero 6, a cute superhero movie that should prove to be a font of unending merchandising opportunities directed to young boys the way Frozen has been to young girls. Cute as it is however , Big Hero 6 still comes up short as a children's fantasy. The issues lie in how Big Hero 6 fuses superhero tropes with those of the traditional Disney narrative. The titular super team is brought together by the death of…
  • Movie Review: Interstellar (2014)

    5 Nov 2014 | 3:40 am
    by Tony Dayoub An adventure into time, space and the human soul, Interstellar is more than reminiscent of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But any similarities only heighten the sense that the nearly 50-year-old Stanley Kubrick science fiction classic may never be surpassed as the definitive movie on space exploration. And for director Christopher Nolan, that's a problem. Interstellar, with its integral dramatic dependence on concepts like the Einstein's theory of relativity and Newtonian physics, is Nolan's most significant stab at coherence. Yet the increased focus on the film's attendant…

    by Tony Dayoub Elements of Peeping Tom, Network, Taxi Driver and a powerhouse performance by Jake Gyllenhaal are all fused together by veteran screenwriter Dan Gilroy in his directorial debut, the jittery, sleazy Nightcrawler. A gaunt-looking Gyllenhaal plays Louis Bloom, a twitchy bottom-feeder with aspirations, but for what? Even he's not certain. At the start of the film, he is busted by a security guard as he steals copper wiring, scraps of metal, and even the guard's wristwatch after he manages to overpower the man. But a transaction for the stolen items sets Bloom on a different path…
  • Movie Review: Whiplash (2014)

    27 Oct 2014 | 12:53 pm
    by Tony Dayoub In recent years, the American independent film has become as much a genre onto itself as it is a label distinguishing it as a work made outside the Hollywood system. The Sundance Festival movie in particular was burdened with all sorts of expectations which over time created a stereotype called the "indie." Featuring a cast of young up and coming actors, peppered with a few veterans working for little pay in the hopes of breaking out of some sort of career rut, the worst kind of indie generally recalls a special moment in a young man or woman's life, weighted with a deep, life…

  • Dead Static And Rocky Gray’s New Album Accursed

    17 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Normally when we feature a film or trailer it’s usually on it’s own. Today, however, we decided to do things a little different. For months now we’ve been thinking about what other categories within the horror genre to include in our posts and the one that just keeps coming up is horror music. Let’s face it, without a truly terrifying soundtrack a horror film would not be the same. You can have a great story, incredible lighting for the perfect ominous look, and perfectly executed shots and angles but without the right music to build suspense the film will lack that…

We got to say that this film did a lot of things right especially in the distraction department. which was an element that was used brilliantly throughout. There was only one scene that we were hoping the suspense would have been “milked” a bit more, but other than that the film was very well done. So if you’re alone tonight…

    21 Nov 2014 | 10:38 am
    I must say I was underwhelmed by the latest chapter in The Hunger Games film saga, Mockingjay Part 1, which catches back up with Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) after a major event occurs in the narrative's last installment, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. A fan of the books, I eagerly awaited the all three movie versions and was flush with joy and relief upon seeing the visual treatment of the film adaptations for books one and two. Whereas my mind’s eye could imagine only so much of the eerie juxtaposition between the subjugated districts and the ruthless Capitol, the films stepped…

  • LATE PHASES Review

    Blake Crane
    20 Nov 2014 | 7:58 pm
    Late Phases shows its cards early, establishing a sketch of a main character and the monster he’s pitted against. The setup shows promise with a no-nonsense, bloodthirsty, practical effects werewolf stalking a retirement community, but instead of using the unique setting for metaphor and/or mayhem, the film grinds in its transitions between tame terror and flaccid drama. The man-in-suit is amusing for all the wrong reasons, while the dime-store theater is stretched well beyond its depths. It all makes for an experience that taxes one’s patience instead of their nerves. There’s little…

    Adam Patterson
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:20 pm
    In theory, a story about a man who is trying not to poop for a week doesn’t sound like enough material for a feature length film. Fortunately, Angus Sampson’s The Mule proves that theory wrong by presenting a funny and incredibly gripping crime story. Sampson and co-writer Leigh Whannell  (who also star in this film), have been firmly planted within the horror genre, however this release proves they can easily transition to any other type of film with ease.

  • Sabotage

    18 Nov 2014 | 7:34 am
    Sabotage ★1/2       If someone were to tell me five years ago that Arnold Schwarzenegger would still be producing films at this stage in his career, I might have just brushed off the utterance and went about my daily affairs. After all, why would a man who has accomplished so much, aside from the silver screen, accept trivial roles of seemingly misguided intentions? I guess this is a question only he can answer.    David Ayer's "Sabotage" is a misfortune to say the least, both for the leading actor and the director, himself. Ayer has been at the helm of…
  • Interstellar

    12 Nov 2014 | 11:56 pm
    Interstellar     Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" is a film that requires patience and an understanding of human nature. It places humanity in an eleventh-hour quandary and sends a small group of individuals, forming a microcosm, into the infinite cold and darkness that is our universe. A journey that almost certainly will not transpire within my lifetime and would only reside in the pages of a science fiction novel.    A picture of this magnitude must be molded by a sense of truth, in this particular instance, a sincerity that can only be delivered by a skilled…
  • Nightcrawler

    5 Nov 2014 | 10:05 pm
    Nightcrawler ★1/2    Originality, in terms of Hollywood's perception, seems anomalous to say the least, and regrettably has become a peculiar language to us all. Barring few exceptions, the study of character has become a lost art. To be admired in the halls of cinematic history, only appreciated by sight, and never to be touched again. However, Louis Bloom is a man that gives us hope. He is a man that defines what it means to present a delineation of character like no other; and to give rise to a darker side of human nature.    Inner city Los Angeles is a…
  • The Stepfather

    5 Nov 2014 | 2:19 pm
    The Stepfather ★1/2    There are some pictures that should never, in the realm of logic and sound reasoning, be re-fashioned in any sense of the word. Rationally, there are two conditions in which this notion should be fulfilled. Firstly, if the original, in which this burden now bestowed is based upon, was simply not thought provoking or structurally significant. Secondly, and most importantly, a film should never be revamped if it is to offer nothing to the dominion that is filmmaking.    "The Stepfather" is unequivocally an offender of this train of…
  • The Book Of Life

    28 Oct 2014 | 3:50 pm
    The Book of Life ★1/2   There is a startling discovery made in the expository scenes of "The Book of Life." Evidently, oblivious to the intricacies of science and logic, we are told that Mexico is the center of the universe. Although this information was revealed in a discernibly playful manner, I could not help but wonder how many children, by the film's closing, would truly believe this fantasized notion. My guess is enough to unhinge teachers worldwide.   The mentioning of this tidbit of knowledge is pertinent because the underlying aim of this children's picture…

Interstellar is now in theatrical release around the world, and with that comes the inevitable fallout of all Christopher Nolan films. What did it mean? How visually stunning was it? Did that ending make sense? For my money, Interstellar is a beautiful experience that operates on the grandeur of David Lean, with the sentimentality of early Steven Spielberg, and in the same ambitious, high-concept headspace of Stanley Kubrick. Yet, it still…

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:17 pm
    Review David Crow 11/21/2014 at 4:17PM The new alien slasher Extraterrestrial has some clever visuals to occasionally distract from its mediocrity.Those pesky kids and their cabins in the woods. If it is not a chainsaw-wielding murderer or demon from the fruit cellar, then it’s a gun-toting nut down the lake or little green men from another world. In Extraterrestrial, it’s both. Sadly, this tired joke is all that this indie alien horror has to go on beyond some admittedly impressive visual wizardry when it comes to a new kind of E.T. and his decidedly less friendly glowing finger.

  • Clean Cut: A Profile of Barbers in India

    Navz Sangwan
    8 Nov 2014 | 9:07 am
    In India, as tradition dictates, the barbering profession is inherited and passed down from generation to generation. Historically, and in addition to cutting hair, barbers have played other important social roles. For example, some of the earliest surgeons were barbers because of their expertise with handling razors. In ancient India, barbers were traditionally used as messengers, mediators and confidants, concerning themselves with the resolution of social matters. Even today, when arranging a marriage, barbers are the preferred mediators. The barber’s influence on Indian culture is…
  • Festival review: Simple Things 2014

    Alex Durham
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:13 am
    On paper On paper – or webpage – this year’s Simple Things festival in Bristol promised performances from an innovative cross-section of artists including Caribou, Mogwai, Death from Above 1979, Black Lips, Liars and How to Dress Well, dotted throughout the city centre in a creative selection of venues.   Our verdict With the festival spanning 15 stages, the main concern for any enthused muso attending would be the inevitability of being torn between giants like Mogwai, and up-and-comers such as dreamy, laptop pop act Oliver Wilde. With its fourth running year, and our…
  • Calling a Cambulance: the Desert’s Answer to Emergency Services

    Alex Durham
    26 Oct 2014 | 12:23 pm
    In developed countries, an ambulance can reach the scene of a medical emergency in a matter of minutes, with first world innovations and infrastructure saving millions of lives. But what about the isolated regions of the third world, particularly vast, arid deserts? With churning sandstorms, the defiance of seasonal drought, no road access and abject poverty, ploughing a large van armed with life support equipment to someone in need is rarely an option; medical care often cannot be delivered on time, and many people die as a result. Some of the world’s deficiently developed nations…

    Navz Sangwan
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Leeds based Samir Alikhanizadeh, aka Happa, has been making waves in the UK underground scene with his bass heavy, industrial techno music. And aside from all the enthusiastic conversations he’s happened to stir throughout the music community (Four Tet, Mary Anne Hobbs and James Blake are endorsing him!), people are talking about his age. He’s only 16, but don’t let it distract you from his music! It’s quite a forceful and ominous presence, with the stomach punching bass lines that help to create a violent and gritty resonance. Then comes the calm after the storm:…

  • MOVIE REVIEW: Late Phases

    Bub Smith
    21 Nov 2014 | 7:27 pm
    Werewolf movies are always a gamble and I’m not sure why. Being a fan of the horror genre most likely means you’ve learned to love movies for being less than perfect. Fans of the genre (myself included) have learned to not just forgive, but fully embrace films for cheesy special effects, sub-par acting and storylines that make no sense. Sadly, it seems that the werewolf sub-genre not only features these character traits, but brings them to a whole new level of awfulness.  For every Dog Soliders there is at least a couple dozen 5$ bin throw away titles. Director Adrian Garcia…

  • Trailer: Marco Polo

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Duff here… Netflix continues to their push of creating a strong alternative to Dish, and Cable with Marco Polo. So far Netflix hasn’t stumbled too badly with their original programing; House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, the new Arrest Development, etc have all been strong outings. The kiddie cartoon Turbo is terrible, but I can’t think of anything else. I love their british imports masked as Netflix Orginals: Peaky Blinders, The Fall, etc…great stuff. Personally, I think Marco Polo will be their biggest test to date. No big star, historical period piece, big…

Christine was a diligent student and grew up to be a good professional. After she started working, she asked her mother to leave her job and take rest. Her mother was proud to have a daughter like her. Things were moving on. One day, Christine’s…

    Katniss Everdeen blazed into the hearts of readers and viewers in the overwhelmingly popular Hunger Games series. Fans of the character will be rewarded in the latest instalment, Mockingjay – Part 1, as Jennifer Lawrence carries the heart of the film in her exceptional performance. However, fans of the narrative will be greatly disappointed. The film commences with Katniss waking up in District 13, the lost region of Panem, which was supposedly destroyed by the Capitol. What she finds instead is the home of a fierce rebellion, lead by President Coin (Julianne Moore). Katniss also…

    Basic Facts Name: Jason Reitman DOB: 19 October 1977 (age 36), in Montreal, Quebec, Canada Years active: 1989 – present Early Career Jason Reitman had somewhat of a legacy to live up to, as his father, Ivan Reitman, is the director of many successful films, and his mother an actress. Ivan directed many comedy films, like Ghostbusters and Kindergarten Cop, and so Reitman obviously felt a pressure to be accepted in the industry as he grew up. His stunning resume of films proves that Reitman certainly has lived up to that legacy, and then some. As a child, he lived in Los Angeles, and during…

    One of the biggest questions with the Daredevil Netflix show was who in the hell was Rosario Dawson playing. She was one of the biggest names to be included in the cast and yet she was the only cast member that didn't really have an attached role announced. So naturally, us geeks did what we do best. Speculate. "She's playing Elektra!" everyone thought. "Typhoid Mary! Maya Lopez!" others said. A lot even said that she could even play Jessica Jones herself, which I thought was a great idea by the way. Who better to play Jessica Jones than a very well known actress that had the chops and star…

    9 Nov 2014 | 12:31 pm
    . . . . is probably a knee-jerk reaction from general audiences when they hear she's getting a Netflix series alongside her more popular co-Defenders Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Daredevil. She is one of the newer few successes Marvel comics has had with a new character. Her first appearance in a comic book was in Alias which was then followed by The Pulse. Beyond her critically acclaimed solo titles, her role has slowly decreased from a lead heroine into more of a supporting character. Her book has also the distinction of being the first Marvel comic to actually include the word FUCK thanks to…

Hailing from the Silver Age of Comics, the Maximoff twins and Vision have been chosen by Lord Joss Whedon to be inaugurated into the team and Whedon could not have picked a better lineup. This is classic Avengers at its finest. POWERS Now these guys being in the MCU may not seem that much of a big deal to some but to an over-analyzing geek like me, it's a really big deal. This is one of the first depictions of a super-powered Earthling in the MCU (that doesn't necessarily…

Comics fans are more than aware of who Black Panther (aka T'Challa) is and many believed leading up to this announcement that it was only a matter of time before Marvel adapted the property into a film. There are still very few details released and seeing as it's not slated until 2017 I'm sure it'll be some time before we start to get any concrete information. With that said, there are enough details available to start piecing together a look into…
