  • The November Man

    "The November Man" is a strange and frustrating movie. It seems to want to be a James Bond or Jason Bourne picture: the kind of film in which car chases are tracked by satellites and drones, assassins cut down bushels of henchmen while barely batting an eye, and good and bad guys alike seem to just magically appear, a la Christopher Nolan superheroes, wherever the plot needs to them to be. At the same time, it wants to be a John Le Carre-type espionage drama, set in a version of reality and mixing allusions to real-world geopolitical traumas (including Russian-Chechnyan…

    Sheila writes: Some long takes in cinema are gratuitous and flashy, some connect themselves to the theme of the movie, but all of them are fun to pick apart and deconstruct. The technological challenges are daunting and it's fun to see film-makers rise to those challenges. I came across a video analyzing 12 long takes in cinema, and it should be a fun jumping-off point for discussion. What are your favorite long takes? Trailers '71 (2014). Directed by Yann Demange.

  • Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People

    Godfrey Cheshire
    27 Aug 2014 | 5:36 am
    One of the things I learned in watching Thomas Allen Harris’ engrossing documentary “Through a Lens Darkly”: George Eastman, of Eastman Kodak fame, served on the board of Booker T. Washington’s Tuskegee Institute and in the late 19th century helped the school set up a photography program. That initiative not only reflected black leaders’ longstanding belief that photography aided their cause, it also gave Washington the positive images he needed in taking the case of African-Americans to the world. At the Paris Exposition of 1900, the educator, then the most famous African-American…
  • Starred Up

    27 Aug 2014 | 5:36 am
    From the very first shot, there’s tension humming underneath the phenomenal “Starred Up” that only intensifies as the characters deepen. The opening shot is shaky, reflecting both movement and the disorientation that comes with change. And the eyes of Jack O’Connell, a future star if ever I’ve seen one, are tight and coiled, first looking down to gather his thoughts and then glaring up at the unknown future of his destination. We see this young man going through the process of moving from juvenile care to being admitted to an adult prison, and it ends with his hands on his head and…
  • “The Art of John Alvin” Captures Lost Art of Movie Poster Magic

    Brian Tallerico
    26 Aug 2014 | 7:59 am
    John Alvin changed the way that a generation and an industry looked at film. It sounds like hyperbole, but so many of the iconic images that I associate with the films of my youth may have been traced by the filmmakers but were inked by Alvin. A true artist, the most important movie poster designer of the ‘70s and ‘80s took the visuals of the industry and turned them into art. When I was a teenager, I actually collected movie posters, framed and hung on my wall, and I believe that Alvin’s approach to the form greatly influenced my love of movies. This wasn’t advertising, it was…

    An iced coffee, a trumpeted rendition of a magical tune, and the man from the White Lodge. David Lynch has now transformed the ephemeral absurdity of the ice bucket challenge into physical absurdity. It’s enough to make you wonder why thousands of people have made videos of themselves being doused in freezing water. Think about how truly strange that is for a moment. Like we were all hypnotized, allowed by society to be socially bizarre for a good cause. The two funniest moments are when Lynch says, “I’m taking the challenge” so sweetly (we don’t even have to…

A stint aboard a space mining freighter for the Weyland-Yutani Corporation is a bit too futuristic for me, and I’ve missed the boat for enrolling in med school or law school.

The normally comedic actor looks almost unrecognizable as John du Pont, a man who is as obsessed about bringing U.S. wrestling to the higher world ranks as he is trying to exert some sort of control over his own life. As a du Pont heir, Carell’s character is constantly subject to his familial pressures that seem to have him on the brink of madness. The true story follows Carell’s du Pont as he mentors gold medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum).

    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.

    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: Rooney Mara Helps Two Boys in the Slums in 'Trash' UK Trailer

    Ethan Anderton
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:19 am
    We've seen Rooney Mara insult Mark Zuckerberg, struggle with the law in Ain't Them Bodies Saints and take matters into her own hands in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Now she's in the slums of Rio, Brazil in Stephen Daldry's latest film Trash. In what feels like a different take on Danny Boyle's Millions, the story follows two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums who find a wallet amongst the usual garbage at a local dump. But when they learn that their find might belong to someone important and land them a reward, they have to figure out who to trust outside of the corrupt police force.
  • First Look: Pixar's 'Inside Out' Reveals the Girl Outside of the Mind

    27 Aug 2014 | 7:48 am
    So far, we've only seen a brief glimpse of Pixar Animation's forthcoming movie Inside Out. The film follows a little girl named Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job all the way in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions are the only first look we've gotten at the 2015 release from Pixar, and they're a big part of the movie as they live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they…
  • 'A Good Day to Die Hard' Director to Helm 'I.T.' with Pierce Brosnan

    26 Aug 2014 | 7:07 pm
    Audiences will see Pierce Brosnan get back into action mode this weekend with The November Man (and there's already a sequel on the way), but that's not the only action he'll be seeing on the big screen. The former James Bond is set to star in I.T., another thriller set up at Voltage Films with A Good Day to Die Hard helmer John Moore attached to direct. But it sounds like there won't quite be as much action as either of their recent projects since the story follows Brosnan as a publisher whose relationship with a young I.T. consultant sours, causing the young man to use technology to…

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:51 pm
    Over a year ago, news surfaced that Sony Pictures was going to round up director Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks to adapt Dan Brown's novel Inferno, the latest book in the series featuring symbologist Robert Langdon. Hanks played the character who gets caught up in action and adventure, like an upscale Indiana Jones, in both The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, and while there's a third book that hasn't been turned into a film, The Lost Symbol, the studio is just marching onward with Inferno, a story which finds our hero suddenly waking up in an Italian hospital with amnesia.

    "I will not give into despair, because hopeless should never win... and hopeless is a lie." Drafthouse Films has debuted the first trailer for the highly acclaimed documentary The Overnighters, from director Jesse Moss, who captures an extraordinary look at a small community in North Dakota. We've been raving about this documentary since Sundance and recently featured the first "motion-poster" poster for the doc, which fades between many of the faces seen in this trailer. The trailer is a beautiful glimpse at the bigger story in The Overnighters, as there's something else going on but you…

    We were rather surprised to learn that Tyler Perry would be starring in a David Fincher movie, and as it turns out Tyler Perry was too. The multi-hyphenate confessed he didn’t know who Fincher was when he signed on for the Gillian Flynn adaptation Gone Girl. If he had, he probably wouldn’t have joined at all.

    Showtime has released a teaser trailer for their new series The Affair which stars Dominic West (300, The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Saving Mr. Banks, The Prisoner) in a story about an extramarital affair in the Hamptons but shown from both the male and female perspectives, “using the distinct memory biases of both to tell the story.” Sounds like a cool way to tell such a story.

  • Destroy All Monsters: My Television Cost Money; Kindly Fill All Of It

    27 Aug 2014 | 8:01 am
    We return this week to a time where the purveyors of multimedia, en masse, evidently require some form of re-education on the concept of frame sizes. I lived through Frame War I, when every movie in existence was rapidly ported to VHS and other home screening formats, which required (for most movies shot after 1960, at least) that they have their "arms" chopped off - meaning the excision of the left and right sides of their rectangular frames, to fit the (then) square television sets. Now we're onto Frame War II, where the televisions have kindly obliged the cinematic landscape by adopting a…

    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.

    After rebooting his career with two small scale earth-bound pictures, The Wrestler and Black Swan, to my surprise Aronofsky launched back into big idea cinema with the previously unfilmed biblical story of Noah and the Great Flood. It’s a strange mix of epic swagger and Hollywood heroism and the intellectual cinematic gymnastics which Aronofsky has been known for.

    Peter Hartlaub

    Spy thriller. Often frustrating and at times incomprehensible, the Bourne/Bond clone keeps the pulse racing but ultimately fails to satisfy. A reported 10 years in the making, the film looks as if it went through a dozen rewrites, and no one bothered to check to ensure the newer drafts continued to make sense. When a top CIA agent's protection duty ends in tragedy, (1) he retires to a seaside chateau in Europe (2). [...] an unknown assassin killing other agents brings him back in the game (3, 4) to save an old flame (5) and work with his troubled protegee (6) to unravel a mystery with ties to…

    The Dance of Reality The first film in 23 years from enfant terrible director Alejandro Jodorowsky ("El Topo") is a fantasia on his childhood in Chile, and it has some of the subversive, surreal imagery, bloody violence, nudity and general sense of running amok of his long-ago work. There are some nice visual surprises and even a few moving sequences, but overall it's self-indulgent. Only Lovers Left Alive Jim Jarmusch continues his rebellion against narrative while offering nothing in its place, with this dull, flat story of a vampire couple (Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston) sitting around…
  • 'To Be Takei' review: loving tribute to 3 major roles of lifetime

    21 Aug 2014 | 4:43 pm
    "To Be Takei," an entertaining look at icon George Takei, has a lot of solar system to cover in its 93 minutes. Being an activist for gay marriage; speaking up for Japanese Americans sent to internment camps (as a boy, he and his family were forced into one); and of course, starring as the incomparable Sulu in "Star Trek." Throughout the film, Jennifer Kroot (the director) and Bay Area editing whiz Bill Weber (also the co-director) show us Takei's infectious sense of humor and his unflappable zest for life. The documentary is particularly strong when it explores Takei's earlier years, as he…

    What makes this elegy worth watching is the unfettered access to Andrew, Appachey and Harley, teenagers who are dealing with a hardscrabble existence in which role models are nowhere in sight. Throughout the film, we marvel at how directors Tracy Droz Tragos and cousin Andrew Droz Palermo capture the kids and their interactions with their families - it's all very natural. The cinematography is so beautiful, and the score so hypnotic, that the project threatens to come off as an exercise in trailer park porn (for the record, there are no trailer parks in sight, but you get the point).

    Rom-com meets 'Twilight Zone' On a story level, the thing that gives "The One I Love" its distinct appeal is that it brings together unexpected elements. On a deeper level, what makes "The One I Love" satisfying is that it isn't weird for the sake of weird. Instead it seems as though he had serious things he wanted to say about struggling couples and turned to sci-fi as the most expressive means of saying them. From the beginning, the movie points the audience in the direction of uncomfortable truths. Moss' combination of surface sweetness and watchful coldness - of studied placidity and…

About two months ago near the street where I live (for a story to win confidence, it usually has to contain a few superfluous references to time, place, and exact numbers), I noticed an ad by a realty called “Verve” and decided that, if not only producers of energy drinks and admirers of female beauty but also real estate agents find it possible to adopt such a…
  • Aspirin the wonder drug: some food for thought

    So far it has been an unusually warm and sunny summer in the United Kingdom, but unfortunately this clement weather has not been matched by the news coverage of world events, which for months has been overcast and stormy as war and tragedy have stalked Europe and the Middle East. But there was a break in the cloud — the combined British broadcast and print media rejoiced in the news (reported in Annals of Oncology) that an international group of academics have shown that consuming low doses of aspirin from middle age onwards can reduce the risk of dying of cancer, heart attack, or stroke.

    Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive But to be young was very heaven! – William Wordsworth on the French Revolution I was not that young when New Europe’s transition began in 1989, but I was there: in Poland at the start of the 1990s and in Russia during its 1998 crisis and after, in both cases as the resident economist for the World Bank. This year is the 25th anniversary of New Europe’s transition and the sixth year of Old Europe’s growth-cum-sovereign debt crisis. Old Europe can learn from New Europe: first, about getting government debt dynamics under control if you want…
  • Special events and the dynamical statistics of Twitter

    DanP
    27 Aug 2014 | 12:30 am
    A large variety of complex systems in ecology, climate science, biomedicine, and engineering have been observed to exhibit so-called tipping points, where the dynamical state of the system abruptly changes. Typical examples are the rapid transition in lakes from clear to turbid conditions or the sudden extinction of species after a slightly change of environmental conditions. Data and models suggest that detectable warning signs may precede some, though clearly not all, of these drastic events. This view is also corroborated by recently developed abstract mathematical theory for systems,…

    Dawn of Planet of the Apes (2014). DB here: The silly season always seems to catch me off guard. This time I got the word in a New York Times feature, “The Moviegoers.” Here two writers, Frank Bruni and Ross Douthat, conduct an email conversation about recent films. You may have thought that the Times already has a large stable of movie reviewers, headlined by Manohla Dargis and A. O. Scott.  But mainstream movies are very accessible (as opposed to, say, serial music or Baroque architecture), so nearly everybody has something to say. And because nobody knows what counts as…

    DB here: Bingo! Crowdsourcing pays off. Alert blogger Ivan Paio found the original poster that’s tucked into the Magnificent Ambersons frame! It confirms that Welles used not a film poster but one advertising a stage show…that could have played the Bijou in 1912. If you’re not familiar with our quest, you can go here and here and here. Be sure to visit Ivan’s site for details, and give him a big hand.

I suggested that the mystery poster tucked into the corner of one shot in The Magnificent Ambersons is the Pathé release of 1912, The Cow-Boy Girls. Readers with long memories and no life of their own will recall that this question has bugged me since my earlier post in May. Last week my colleague Eric Hoyt suggested what the title might be, and some rummaging in various sources, particularly the invaluable Lantern…

    DB here: Some readers may recall my post on The Magnificent Ambersons back in May. I argued that Welles built a sense of the irretrievable past into many aspects of the film’s narration. He used the voice-over commentary to evoke times gone by, but also ellipsis, offscreen action, constant recitation of memories, and other strategies. In addition, there were moments of cinephile nostalgia, including the iris shot at the end of the snow scene and the concluding credits of the actors slowly turning to face the audience, as in the manner of films of the 1910s. Then there were the movie…

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

    Stylistically, 'A Dame To Kill For' is every bit similar to the first 'Sin City'. To say that you are getting more of the same is true. The visuals, violence, and heavy noir are still strongly at play. I enjoyed most all the actors. Rourke steals the show as Marv, again. Gordon-Levitt, Boothe, and Green are the other standouts.

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

What’s Liebesman done before? Battle: Los Angeles (an incoherent mess) and Wrath of the Titans (a me-too Greek mythology flick). His lack of experience creating a polished film shows, and while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is true to the comic book origins of the tiny box turtles who grow up in the NY sewers to become smart-aleck ninjas, but it’s a dry exercise in how to string…

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

I’m talking about the summer release with the always popular muscleman Dwayne Johnson in the title role, as released jointly by Paramount and MGM.

    There’s a certain story arc that just about every Luc Besson film has in common, a theme likely inspired by Hitchcock, of the “everyman” caught up in events far beyond their understanding. Even the earliest Hitch works like The 29 Steps explore this theme to great effect. It works well because we then quickly identify with the protagonist and yearn to see them succeed and overcome the challenges that they encounter on their quest for the mythic happy ending. Besson, however, is in love with American action stunts and cinema by directors like Michael Bay (Transformers), so…

Did Neil Patrick Harris do it? Did Scoot McNairy do it? (Did we do it?) Yet the thing is, while the trailers and a new TV spot keep us intrigued with wonder about whodunit, that's not the sole reason to be excited about this movie. No way that director David Fincher would make a movie that's just about the endpoint. He made Zodiac, after all. And even The Game and Se7en are about more than their…
  • News Briefs: 'Jurassic World' Honors Richard Attenborough (Photo); Chris Hemsworth Going on 'Vacation'

    25 Aug 2014 | 10:02 pm
    Jurassic World: Director Colin Trevorrow shared a new image from Jurrassic World via social media, in honor of actor-filmmaker Richard Attenborough, who passed away last weekend. Attenborough, of course, played industrialist John Hammond in both Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and the photo, with the simple caption "In Memoriam," shows a statue of the character that reportedly appears in Trevorrow's new film, due for release on June 12, 2015.

  • News Briefs: Richard Attenborough, Actor and Director Who Touched Generations, Dies

    25 Aug 2014 | 8:31 am
    Richard Attenborough: British actor and director Richard Attenborough has died, just shy of turning 91 years of age. His most notable films roles included his turns as an incendiary punk in 1947's trailblazing Brighton Rock, a military leader in 1963's The Great Escape and a cuddly grandfather/misguided visionary in 1993's Jurassic Park. He became a producer in 1959 and made his directorial debut with the musical Oh! What a Lovely War in 1969, later winning two Academy Awards for 1982's Gandhi.

  • Here's What 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Looks Like Before Computer Effects Are Added

    25 Aug 2014 | 7:35 am
    Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City, opened in theaters this past weekend and is a very different kind of movie because of the way it's shot, as witnessed in this B-roll footage revealing countless behind-the-scenes moments captured during the film’s production.   The most striking thing about all of this material is just how green it is. Sin City is best known for its stark and stylized black-and-white color scheme, so it’s a bit of a shock to watch actors parading around in front of lots of green…

    [FINDING VIVIAN MAIER screens Saturday August 30th at 9:20 pm and Sunday August 31st at 4:30 pm at the Cleveland Cinematheque.Review by Bob IgnizioIt's kind of like the most interesting episode of Storage Warsever. John Maloof (who co-wrote and directed this documentary with Charlie Siskel) bought some boxes of negatives at an auction. Those negatives turned out to be an amazing stash of never before seen street photographs of Chicago. Initially Maloof didn't do much with the photos, since everyone he talked to said they were nothing special. But once he had time to sit down and really go…

    Charles Cassady Jr.
    26 Aug 2014 | 10:07 pm
    Review by Charles Cassady, Jr. I promised myself in writing this review I wouldn't make any gratuitous Robin Williams references. For many reasons. (1) It's somewhat disrespectful to the late entertainer and his bereaved family - not to mention that everyone else is doing it. (2) For some odd reason, this review may be re-posted or re-read at some point in the future, when the suicide of Williams is no longer a front-page headline, and would only come across as a sicko non-sequitur, and (3) if you haven't learned from reading me yet that showbiz ruins lives and destroys people, you'll never…

    21 Aug 2014 | 10:11 pm
    Review by Bob IgnizioTo quote the Ramones, “Second verse, same as the first.” That about sums up Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez' SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. Arguably, it may even be a better overall film than its predecessor, 2005's SIN CITY, but now that the novelty has worn off the film's hyper stylized black and white blend of live action performances and digital sets, it loses some of the impact it might otherwise have had. That means DAMEhas to rely more on its stories, which as is the case in the comics these films are derived from, tend to be less interesting than the way in…

    Sony has, for a while now, been holding onto a December 2015 release date for Inferno – a film adaptation of author Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon novel released in 2013 (Brown’s fourth Langdon adventure overall). Today, we finally have a significant progress update to offer on the project, which shall once again team up actor Tom Hanks and director Ron Howard, following their two previous Langdon movies (The Da Vinci Code in 2006 and Angels & Demons in 2009). Sony’s original plan was to reunite the Hanks/Howard team on a movie version of The Lost Symbol, which is…
  • ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’: Alternate Designs for Nebula and Gamora

    Araceli Roach
    26 Aug 2014 | 7:51 pm
    Three weeks into its release, Marvel’s newest superhero movie Guardians of the Galaxy is still #1 at the box office, having earned $253 million domestically in just 25 days. The space opera currently ranks as the third highest grossing movie of 2014, only behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Lego Movie. Part of the movie’s appeal can be said to come from its writing, which alternates between humor, action and drama with ease. But more than likely, a lot of it has to do with the movie’s heroes: Star-Lord, Gamora, Groot, Rocket and Drax. Yet one really…
  • ‘Jurassic World’ Set Photo Reveals Richard Attenborough Tribute

    We were all saddened at the passing of Lord Richard Attenborough, a man whose career spanned over 70 years and earned him two Oscars for his directorial masterpiece, Gandhi, as well as two Golden Globes for performances in The Sand Pebbles and Doctor Doolittle.Most know Attenborough best for his role as the entrepreneur John Hammond, who in the 1993 film Jurassic Park envisioned a state of the art park where people could witness real life dinosaurs. Attenborough charmed audiences with Hammond’s enthusiasm, however misguided, but never played Hammond as a buffoon, instead giving…

    Dan Persons
    22 Aug 2014 | 1:08 pm
    Greg Nicotero (in glasses and plaid shirt) preps a zombie for his moment in the spotlight on THE WALKING DEAD. Sometimes doing the job is reward in itself. That’s what it was like for me to talk with Greg Nicotero. From DAWN OF THE DEAD to BREAKING BAD, from ARMY OF DARKNESS to OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, from HOSTEL to SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, his vivid and creative makeup effects work has brought the fantastic, the grotesque, and the sometimes-just-plain-realistic to a dazzling kaleidoscope of film and TV projects. That includes THE WALKING DEAD, the blockbuster TV series which…

    Jeff Bridges (left) and Brenton Thwaites go where only the Pepperidge Farms man previously dared to tread, remembering the way things used to be in THE GIVER. I had my concerns about The Giver, another, teen-oriented film from the Weinstein Company. After all, TWC’s previous effort in this arena was Vampire Academy, and that blatant mish-mosh of Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, and whatever else has been luring adolescent females to the theaters didn’t go down too smoothly. Serving as definite counter-balance to my trepidations: the presence at the helm of  Phillip…

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES doing quite well, thank you very much.

    (l to r) Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Chris Pratt tap their inner Han Solo in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Welcome to August, the month when studios, having already fired off all their high-profile (not to mention high concept) summer guns, unleash what amounts to their second tier of releases, the stuff that doesn’t automatically trigger broad media attention, things with a more… “culty,” shall we say?… appeal, and things that are, let’s just say it, no durn good. However, since even the big tent-poles can now be somewhat inconsequential in their story-telling and quality (AMAZING…

    29 Jul 2014 | 1:23 pm
    So while Brett Ratner and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got their crack at HERCULES this past weekend, Renny Harlin beat ‘em to the punch — and the slash, and the blood-curdling war-cry — at the beginning of the year with THE LEGEND OF HERCULES. This is a more grounded treatment of the mythological warrior, closer in approach to GLADIATOR than JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS — although any film in which the hero can channel lightning through his sword can’t really lay much claim to historical accuracy (and all to the better in that regard, I say). It’s…

For Rolling Stone, filmmaker James Gray writes on Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now on the occasion of its 35th anniversary:  "The film is indeed self-consciously mythic, and with its transcendent imagery, it enters the cosmic realm.

    David Cairns
    19 Aug 2014 | 4:22 pm
    I was first attracted to Das Geheimschloss, a.k.a. Miss Clever Versus the Black Hand, because of an intriguing coincidence concerning its year of production. It's the third episode in a serial chronicling the exploits of intrepid lady detective Miss Clever. Not much is known about the show, even the director being anonymous. But the villains share their name, The Black Hand, with the Serbian nationalist group whose assassination of Duke Franz Fedinand of Austro-Hungary that same year triggered the First World War. The movie itself is not overtly political. Miss Clever, when first…

    I don’t make films myself, but it seems obvious to me there are but two places to learn how to make movies: in the outside world constrained by so-called reality, and in the inside world of the cinema’s darkness, constrained by so-called illusion. Travelogue tales and quotidian reportage being of little interest here, a log for illusionary research and experience, I must duly deliver my film report on the films that came upon me in the darkness of the Melbourne International Film Festival, which ran from July 31 - August 17, and the lessons learned.

    Not much has been officially released for Pixar’s Inside Out. The GeekTyrant staff did get a sneak peek at the film during D23, but other than that, they've kept a tight lid on it. But now we have a look at main character/setting, Riley.Inside Out takes place inside of the mind of a young tween named Riley. Each facet of her emotions is expressed as individual characters Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), and Anger (Lewis Black). This team of emotions work together to help Riley as she adjusts to living in a new city. Inside Out is written…

    Most photos and videos of Batman come out of Gotham. Usually anything that isn't super dark and blurry mysteriously disappears from the internet. In a rare sighting, Batman has been spotted in Japan and captured in sharp photos and a video. It's unknown why he was in Japan or who he might be pursuing. A few superhero conspiracy sites think it might be the related to recent actively in Japan from a secret group known as The League of Shadows.

Very creative work from Casey Preskitt.

    When I watched Weird Al Yankovic's Emmy Award performance, I honestly didn't know what to think. Don't get me wrong, I love Weird Al, but there was just something very awkward and off about watching his performance. He performed a medley of TV theme songs with added lyrics.He riffed on the theme songs for shows such as Mad Men, Scandal, Homeland, Modern Family, and Game of Thrones, the lyrics he wrote for each one amusingly described the plot of the show. At one point Andy Samberg even joined him on stage. It was easily one of the stranger parts of the Emmy Awards ceremony. The best…

    6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds. 22 Jump Street.  It’s actually more of a comedy about sequels than it is a sequel to a comedy. Jersey Boys.  If Da Man had his way, the title of this film would be Jersey Boy, or maybe The One Season, or possibly just Frankie Valli. How to Train Your Dragon 2  Dragons may be creations of fantasy, but the reality is that this sequel holds its own against the original.  Hiccup, Toothless, and the gang are back together, and this is a flight of fantasy you’ll want to take.

If you’ve been looking forward to seeing the Sentinels on the big screen—you might have to keep on looking.  Like every other X-Men movie, this one devolves into a predictable showdown with Magneto. Maleficent. Forget about fantasy violence and frightening images, why doesn’t the MPAA warn audiences about gratuitous pixie action? Edge of Tomorrow.  In his latest sci-fi epic, Tom Crusie has the ability to reset time, but since audiences seem to assume this film is Oblivion 2, it’s unlikely Edge of…

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

Draft Day.  If Hollywood held a draft, the movie Draft Day probably wouldn’t go until the seventh round.  Still, you might pick it up in a straight trade for a Channing Tatum romance or even a Cuba Gooding, Jr. direct-to-video release. Noah.  What Darren Aronofsky did for ballet in the Black Swan, he now does for the Bible in Noah. He makes it dark, psychological, and a little silly.  As an extra bonus, he throws in fracking, rock people, and a psychopathicNoah. The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Considering the amount of screen time…

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

  • Herbert Marshall, Biography of the Trouble in Paradise Star

    Cliff Aliperti
    16 Aug 2014 | 1:57 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraIf you raise your voice when discussing Trouble in Paradise (1932) then you’re likely arguing Kay Francis versus Miriam Hopkins, but never Herbert Marshall. Marshall’s gentleman thief Gaston Monescu is the heart of that Ernst Lubitsch classic every bit as much as the director’s famed touch. Marshall’s own imprint is lighter, call it less intrusive, than Lubitsch's in what I've come to regard as the actor's signature role. Above: Marshall with Miriam Hopkins in Trouble in Paradise.

  • Charlie Chaplin Picto-Sked for TCM Summer Under the Stars 2014

    13 Aug 2014 | 11:38 pm
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraI wasn't sure I'd be able to cobble together a Picto-Sked for Charlie Chaplin day. I thought some of the early movies that TCM is playing on Thursday might be hard to find ads to represent them. Piece of cake. A King in New York (1957) turned out to the toughest find since it wasn't released in the U.S. until the early 1970s. The Picto-Sked below gathers the entire August 14, 2014 schedule of Charlie Chaplin movies playing on TCM and illustrates each with an actual period newspaper advertisement to give a little extra…

    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraNote: The subject of this post, Hot Saturday, plays on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) tonight, August 13, at 8:00 pm EDT. Enjoy! "The things you believed of me last night were lies. But this morning they’re the truth." Above: Nancy Carroll in Hot Saturday Hot Saturday has grown on me. I still think several other Paramount titles of the era warrant inclusion over it and other selections in Universal’s 2009 Pre-Code Hollywood Collection of DVDs, but a benefit to Hot Saturday’s being there is that I've now watched it…

    The next-generation Vacation reboot starring Ed Helms that everyone hoped would just end up just quietly dying in the backseat like Aunt Edna is one step further to reality with the casting of the improbably named Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins. (Those are their real names, apparently.) The kids will play Rusty Griswold’s sons, whom he will subject to a cross-country road trip to Walley World in honor of the one undertaken by his family in the historical drama National Lampoon’s Vacation.

    26 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about. The actor: Tony Goldwyn handily qualifies as Hollywood royalty—his grandfather was Samuel Goldwyn and his father is Samuel Goldwyn Jr.—but it only takes a cursory look at his filmography to see that he worked his way up through the ranks just like any other struggling actor, from guest spots on television shows (Designing Women, L.A. Law) to supporting parts in films (Ghost), before beginning to pull…
  • Movie Review: Starred Up is a brutal, but profoundly humane, look at prison life

    26 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Starred Up—David Mackenzie’s brutal, but profoundly humane, drama about life in a British prison—has been met with broad acclaim in the U.K., earning the Scottish director the best reviews of his career. If one had to guess why critics and audiences have responded to this movie, while Mackenzie’s earlier films—which have similarly dealt with difficult interpersonal relationships and discomfiting power dynamics—were indifferently received, the answer probably lies in its subject matter. Mackenzie’s previous films have either dealt with sex in an explicit and unflattering way or…
  • Inventory: Change of plan: 15 documentaries that switched course during filming

    26 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    1. My Kid Could Paint That (2007)Most non-fiction filmmaking is about imposing structure where no structure exists. To explain a topic or make a point or achieve an effect, documentaries essentially reshape life (or at least life as seen through their lens). Every once in a while, however, it’s life that reshapes the documentary—usually by providing a new “story” so compelling that the filmmakers are forced to abandon their old one. That was certainly what happened to director Amir Bar-Lev when he began filming My Kid Could Paint That, a profile of toddler-aged professional painter…
  • Newswire: James Ellroy to write Fox 2000’s remake of 1944 noir classic Laura

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:02 pm
    According to The Hollywood Reporter, crime novelist James Ellroy is set to write a remake of the 1944 noir classic Laura Fox 2000. Ellroy, of course, is the writer behind L.A. Confidential and The Black Dahlia. He’s also a noted hater of hipsters, liberals, rock ’n’ rollers, the counter-culture, and movie people, so let’s all agree not to tell him that writing a movie makes him at least one of those things.The original Laura—which was based on a book of the same name by Vera Caspary—is about a detective who accidentally falls in love with a woman whose murder he’s investigating.

Despite Rosamund Pike’s voiceover explaining how she has come to fear her husband, this latest spot is told largely from Affleck’s perspective, as circumstances conspire to seemingly indicate his guilt. Happily, there aren’t too many major plot points given away here, so non-readers of Gillian Flynn’s source novel needn’t fear having any of the twists and turns spoiled for them… Take a look at the new spot, below……

We can never fully rely on electronics, so it’s best to have the proper spare parts so you never miss a show. When Outdoor Movies handles event production, we make sure to bring a back up for every piece of equipment at the site. Our recommendation is to have an extra projector, blower, speaker and various cables. It is best to have these ready to go, to make for seamless transitions in the case of technical malfunctions.

    You’ve bought your inflatable movie screen or theater system, and now you’re ready to test it out.  The first step is choosing the perfect spot to set up you’re screen.  The next step is deciding the most efficient way to secure it. Proper anchor points are instrumental to the durability of your screen and safety of anyone who may come in to contact with it.  Whether it be the people setting up the screen or you’re audience members, misplaced stakes or ballasts can be incredibly dangerous. To secure your AIRSCREEN inflatable movie screen, you will need four ground anchor points. …

    2014′s summer movie offerings are just getting their start, so bring out the critiques! Disney’s entry continues their recent tradition of taking a time-honored classic animated feature and turning it into a live-action/CGI amalgamation that is sure to intrigue the millions who grew up with the original film. Maleficent casts Angelina Jolie as the title villain, known to just about every man, woman and child as the evil sorceress who curses Sleeping Beauty, transforms into a green-fire breathing dragon and is ultimately defeated by Prince Philip. But that’s not what happens…

    Several times now, I’ve heard Edge of Tomorrow described as the action version of Groundhog Day.  While that might be a good way to describe the movie quickly to someone who hasn’t heard of it, it does a disservice to an original and exciting movie.  For me, Edge of Tomorrow is so far the best movie of the summer and it deserves more careful consideration than a comparison to a 20-year old comedy. I am generally not a big fan of Tom Cruise, and he’s all over the advertising for this movie.  He always seems smug and too cool in his roles.  This time around, he’s…

    Film director David Lynch has directed a video for the debut of Christian Louboutin’s line of $50 nail polishes, and it’s just as weird as we thought it would be. The video, which looks like a surreal Salvador Dali painting coming to life, boasts a signature Louboutin stiletto that transforms into the top of a nail lacquer bottle. There are images of white castles made of weapon-like stilettos spikes, trippy nail polish bottles floating from the sky and, of course, abrupt visions of fingernails that are painted in the classic red Louboutin polish.  The 51-second video is wonderful,…

The film tells a story of a young boy dealing with a fractured family and the angst of adolescence over the course of twelve years, from age 6 to age 18. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” is sweeping and sporadic, jumping from year to year sometimes in a blur; much like the act of growing up itself. “Boyhood” tells the story of the evolution of Mason, Jr (Ellar Coltrane) over a 12 year period, starting from age 6 and going on until he hits 18.

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

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

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

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

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

From games of the SEGA and Nintendo to modern consoles like Xbox and Playstation, the movie is truly a nostalgic treat. Most of the film spins back and forth between a 3D timeline of developments in the gaming industry and checks off the arrival of new companies, consoles, and games. From the introduction of gaming, where games like Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, Tomb Raider, Doom, and Myst were all the rage, and then on to various computer…

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 132 The Passion of the Christ

    18 Aug 2014 | 7:31 am
    Matt and Mark are going on a summer hiatus, but will be back mid-to-late September for our Halloween run-up horror-a-thon. To tide you over, we review the Mel Gibson film The Passion of the Christ. Beloved by the devout, it's time for the atheists perspective. And it cannot be denied, TPOTC is a flat-out good film, regardless of its two-millennium of baggage. Matt takes a psychological perspective while Mark provides the Christian context. A film that is guilty by association, it deserves an honest viewing, even by the most cynical and critical among us. And the South Park guys can go hang.
  • 131 Stranger Than Paradise

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

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

    20 Jul 2014 | 9:46 pm
    Let's turn this up to 11! Matt and Mark have come to the realization that it's a challenge to review comedies properly, and Spinal Tap is no different. But we give it a go, and as such, end up rambling quite a bit. Perhaps more tangential than usually, on this podcast we try to probe the cliched and spoof-worthy realm of heavy metal pop music, a comedy rich landscape. Spinal Tap holds a mirror up to the self-indulgent adolescent rocker, and no matter how close it hits to home, bands to this day continue to indulge the silliness. Just as rock will never die, neither will Spinal…
  • 128 Full Metal Jacket

    13 Jul 2014 | 2:50 pm
     Does Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket romanticize war? Is it possible to make a war movie that doesn't? An interesting two-part film, Kubrick builds a loose narrative from vignette's that don't necessarily speak to one overriding theme. But one doesn't watch FMJ to hammer home the "war is bad" narrative, you watch it for its dark humor, you watch it for its quips, character sketches, and dialogue, and you watch it because its evocative. "Get some!"Download:  128 Full Metal Jacket

  • Pumpkinhead (Scream Factory Blu-Ray) | Movie Review

    Ryne Barber
    21 Aug 2014 | 6:17 pm
    Pumpkinhead is not a movie about a demon with a pumpkin for a head. That’s important to note, as multiple people do in the special features included on this Scream Factory Blu-Ray, because thinking of the film in such a literal sense downplays the intense morality play that it really is. Stan Winston’s directorial debut in 1988 set up six kids who were marked by a vengeful demon, but it doesn’t simply mimic the ideas of slasher films of the era. It expands upon them, and in that way, it’s a much more nuanced film than its peers. Pumpkinhead stars Lance Henriksen as…
  • Spread #1 by Justin Jordan and Kyle Strahm | Comic Review

    Ryne Barber
    19 Aug 2014 | 2:16 pm
    In general, comics are a difficult medium to write. There’s limited space for actions, a lack of description when it comes to movement, and very little time for characterization in one issue. And when one is trying to craft an idea reminiscent of The Thing and The Blob into a comic, there’s a huge obstacle in the way: those stories feed on the anxiety and suspense of never knowing which character is infected, and so characterization is of the utmost importance, as is the way that character acts around others. Enter Spread, the new comic series from writer Justin Jordan and…

  • The Demons (Redemption Blu-Ray) | Movie Review

    Ryne Barber
    14 Aug 2014 | 3:14 pm
    Jess Franco’s The Demons (or Les Démons in its original French title) sits a bit uncomfortably between horror and softcore porn. For fans or detractors of Franco, that’s not much of a surprise; most of his films are engineered for their eroticism, sometimes at the expense of plot, and The Demons is no different. Franco sets his film in the 17th century during an Inquisition, among nuns in a convent plagued by the curse of a witch burned at the stake, allowing for all of the debauchery and common erotic themes viewers have come to love from the writer/director: nunsploitation,…

    (Warning! Spoilers Contained Within!) “Say, ‘Aaaaah,’ motherfucker!” 1989 was the year of the underwater monster movie. Five of them were made and four of them were scheduled to roll out that year. Three were major theatrical releases (DeepStar Six, Leviathan, The Abyss) while the remaining two (The Rift, Lords Of The Deep) were straight-to-video and/or cable. I saw all of them but Lords Of The Deep.

In the US it became Blood Glacier for it’s home video release and it’s a commendable cautionary eco-horror tale that homages John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982). It takes place in the German Alps as this station on the mountain, inhabited by a general technician, his dog and three climatologists, who are studying the effects of global warming on the local glaciers, is attacked by a pissed off Mother…

The only one I ever saw was The Player (1992), but what got me to want to review Clark Gregg’s Trust Me was the fact that Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell were in it. I’m only familiar with Gregg from his Marvel movies appearance; never heard of him until I saw him in Iron Man (2008), and I really didn’t start taking interest in him until he took center stage in that Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D series.

Their first test of this was with last year’s Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, where Flash was the…

Surely she could survive death rumors! Alas, it was then confirmed by the Bogart estate that Bacall passed away yesterday. Lauren Bacall was absolutely stunning. She was a talented actress who was as effective at being sultry as she was being serious or silly. She had wonderful range and I admire her for embracing old age when many other actresses were terrified of it.Her love affair and marriage to Humphrey Bogart is the…

    Woah. Hey there, Summer. Why don't you slow down a bit? The days of June and July felt like they were on fast forward. Next thing I noticed it was already August and I only have 1 out of 6 books reviewed. Yikes! I have to catch up. Right now I'm finishing a 1,000 page biography on Barbara Stanwyck (and it's only volume 1!). I've been chipping away at it all July and it's been a great read. I'm glad I threw in a few shorter books into my challenge list so I can balance things out.I'm also way overdue on sharing the first round-up of reviews by all the participants in the challenge so I'm…

    James Garner and his wife Lois Fleischman Clarke. Source: APJames Garner 1928-2014 I was very sad and somewhat shocked to hear of the death of actor James Garner. On screen, he was always charming and gave consistently good performances. And boy was he handsome! James Garner was a talent who mastered both film and TV. I’ve enjoyed watching him in films such as Boys’ Night Out (1962), The Great Escape (1963), The Thrill of It All (1963) and Grand Prix (1966). And for me, the best parts of the contemporary film The Notebook (2004) were the scenes with Garner whose role and…

    August is my favorite month of the year. Not only is it still summer here, often times less hot and humid than July, but it’s also that special time when TCM airs their best programming: Summer Under the Stars. They clear their schedule to do day-long tributes to 31 different classic movie stars while TCM fans rejoice! It’s a wonderful way to find a new actor or actress to enjoy, to relish the familiar favorites of a beloved star and to delve into a star’s career. I’m hardly ever disappointed with TCM’s line-ups for Summer Under the Stars and I even will take vacation time during…

  • Blu-ray Review: Leviathan (1989, Dir, George P. Cosmatos)

    Shawn Francis
    25 Aug 2014 | 5:08 pm
    (Warning! Spoilers Contained Within!) “Say, ‘Aaaaah,’ motherfucker!” 1989 was the year of the underwater monster movie. Five of them were made and four of them were scheduled to roll out that year. Three were major theatrical releases (DeepStar Six, Leviathan, The Abyss) while the remaining two (The Rift, Lords Of The Deep) were straight-to-video and/or cable. I saw all of them but Lords Of The Deep. I believe I saw The Rift (1990, aka Endless Descent) in 1991 on cable, but I distinctly remember reading the Fangoria article in 1989, where they acknowledged DeepStar Six…

    I heard about this Austrian flick last year when it was called, The Station. Saw the trailer and thought, ‘yup, I’ll need to see this at some point.’  That point has now arrived. In the US it became Blood Glacier for it’s home video release and it’s a commendable cautionary eco-horror tale that homages John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982). It takes place in the German Alps as this station on the mountain, inhabited by a general technician, his dog and three climatologists, who are studying the effects of global warming on the local glaciers, is attacked by a pissed off Mother…

    (Warning! This Review May Contain Spoilers!) I don’t particularly like movies about the inner workings of Hollywood. The only one I ever saw was The Player (1992), but what got me to want to review Clark Gregg’s Trust Me was the fact that Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell were in it. I’m only familiar with Gregg from his Marvel movies appearance; never heard of him until I saw him in Iron Man (2008), and I really didn’t start taking interest in him until he took center stage in that Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D series. He then became one of those actors I just like to watch. Sam Rockwell I’ve…

     ”I’m here, bitches! And I got favors for everybody” —-Joker I understand why DC always does animated movies based only on Batman, Superman and the Justice League; plain and simple, they sell, and apparently they learned that when their solo Wonder Woman movie did not sell well, so their only recourse now, if they want to do standalone flicks based on characters outside of Bats, Supes and their iconic league, is to have them in the movie as supporting characters. Their first test of this was with last year’s Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, where Flash was the…

The first that comes to mind is remembering when it was on TV this one time. I was in the family room, I had the TV on, but I can’t recall if I was in high school or had already graduated. I remembering thinking, “Scanners?! Maybe, I should tape this.” Then deciding not to because it was airing on TV and it would be severely edited. The other out of place memory I have goes back to grade school, seventh or eighth grade. I had this English…

    The Stop Button

  • The Old Dark House (1932, James Whale)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    The Old Dark House is a strange film about strange people doing strange things. Director Whale and screenwriter Benn W. Levy rarely let the film get a set tone–unless one counts the consistent mix of comedy and horror. It’s not straight comedy; the comic elements tend to be either absurdly strange or pedestrian. Husband and wife Raymond Massey and Gloria Stuart bickering over his driving until the storm becomes too dangerous for an argument, for example. Whale goes for peculiar horror elements–relying on his cast to be creepy enough in their performances sometimes, but other…
  • Old Stock (2012, James Genn)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    23 Aug 2014 | 4:09 pm
    The last scene of Old Stock doesn't exactly overshadow the rest of the film, but it certainly sets it apart. It's one of the more subtle finishes to a film. Without giving the viewer any guidance, director Genn and writer Dane Clark close the picture with a silent reference to a line in the dialogue. Hopefully the viewer gets it, because it's a fantastic pay-off. The film concerns Noah Reid, the Stock of the title, who ends up hiding out in a retirement community (at the ripe old age of twenty) with his grandfather (Danny Wells), after an initially vague personal tragedy. The…
  • Liberty Heights (1999, Barry Levinson)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    20 Aug 2014 | 9:24 pm
    Liberty Heights is about protagonist Ben Foster's last year in high school. Levinson never puts it in such simple terms because the film is about quiet, deliberate, but perceivable life events. Every moment in the film's memorable because Levinson is going through these people's memorable moments of the year. Of course, he never forecasts the film will take place over a year. Heights is an epical story, lyrically told. Levinson splits the film primarily between Foster and Adrien Brody, as his older brother. But Joe Mantegna, as their father, and Orlando Jones, as…
  • Bottle Rocket (1996, Wes Anderson)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    20 Aug 2014 | 2:23 pm
    Bottle Rocket is such a masterpiece of narrative design, it eschews drawing any attention to that design. Somehow Anderson and Owen Wilson manage to tell a satisfactory long short film and affix an additional thirty minute postscript to the whole thing. It’s like a movie and a sequel all in ninety minutes. Or maybe they’re just setting up the train set for the first hour and loosing the trains for the last thirty minutes. It’s hard to say–Anderson employs obvious but unspoken connections and complexities. Even though the film is never simple, he refuses to make anything obtuse. The…
  • Alien³ (1992, David Fincher)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    20 Aug 2014 | 9:16 am
    Alien³ is a strange film. Some of its problems inevitably stem from its post-production issues, but there's also the question of intent. It's three films in one; first is a sequel to Aliens. That storyline takes about an hour. Then it's its own film for about forty-five minutes. Then it's the final film in a series for the last ten or so. Characters move between these phases, but not necessarily subplots and the filmmaking techniques even change. Disjointed might be the politest description; incredibly messy also works. Gloriously messy might be the best, however, because…

    26 Aug 2014 | 2:03 pm
    But after becoming sidetracked with throwaway grindhouse pastiches and 3D kids films, it has taken Rodriguez nine years to get around to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. In the intervening years, hype for a sequel has all but dried up completely and the green-screen technology, that helped make the first film such a fresh and exciting project, has become commonplace. There's a distinct feeling that the window for a sequel has passed us by but nonetheless we have A Dame to Kill For, a serviceable if slightly disappointing follow-up.

    The November Man by Hope Madden Somehow, it’s easy to lower your expectations in August, and a film that would seem stale and dated in, say, May or even November, can feel almost like a relief. The November Man is one of those movies. Its lack of digital wizardry – relying, as it does, on old fashioned practical effects – feels like a welcome respite from the summer’s FX bombast. And though this agent-thinks-he’s-out-but-gets-pulled-back-in tale brings very little new to the table, at least it isn’t If I Stay. Or Sin City 2. Or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Oh, August. At…

    18 Aug 2014 | 8:17 pm
    A friend once told me that she and her husband decided to experiment one day and filmed themselves while having sex, just so they can have a third person POV of themselves making love. Thing is, just as how convinced they were that the output would be sexy and porn-worthy, the final product just showed how horrible they looked in bed. So they did the right thing to do and destroyed the video
  • Shell Shock: A “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Review

    17 Aug 2014 | 7:50 am
    by Geoffrey Ledesma I didn’t know the Ninja Turtles through the comics, but I practically knew them from cartoons and computer games when I was a kid. I still remember the good ‘ol times when I would dutifully blow away the dust from the computer game cartridge and excitedly plug it into the SEGA player. Oh how I miss the Cowabunga and Pizza Power days. A criminal group called the “Foot

  • Suits starring Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams & Gina Torres: A Witty, Fun & Addictive Legal Dramedy Series

    lucydiamond
    23 Aug 2014 | 8:11 am
    Gabriel Macht (Harvey) and Patrick J. Adams   (Mike). Image via epictvshows.com. Premise Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is the star attorney at Pearson Hardman. He’s great-looking, very smart, witty, confident, and to top all, he is the best closer in town. He can win in court, but he mostly doesn’t even let cases go that far. Unsurprisingly, he’s about to become a senior partner. Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a different kind of genius. He has a photographic memory: once he reads something, he doesn’t even forget a comma from it. He’s street smart too: he’d be a great lawyer.
  • Something’s Gotta Give starring Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson & Keanu Reeves: How A Romantic Comedy Ought to Be

    7 Aug 2014 | 12:04 pm
    Image via movieposter.com. I’m a huge fan of writer/director Nancy Meyers. It started with What Women Want (starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt), a blast of a romantic comedy with fantasy elements. It’s one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time, though if I had to talk percentages that movie is 80% hilarity and 20% romance. Something’s Gotta Give is a bit more romantic, though the balance is probably more 60% comedy and 40% romance. It’s safe to call Meyers a superstar when it comes to romcom writer/directors. She writes great stories, directs while remaining honest to her…

  • The Mentalist Season 6 Finale: Very Well Done!

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

Concentration Camp Flashbacks Return The last that we saw of Abraham Setrakian in the Nazi concentration camps, he saw The Master arrive and start to kill his fellow prisoners and desperately wanted to find a way to survive.

  • Brick Mansions Movie Review

    Sasha Shapiro
    25 Aug 2014 | 12:40 pm
    Coming to watch Brick Mansions I had high expectations, not because of the film itself but because it was Paul Walkers last film he ever shot. From the get go it looked like it was something that was actually worth my while, seeing Lino jump around all over the place showing what he can do. Unfortunately right than something horrible happened, the local Chef aka the self proclaimed gangster RZA showed up. Brick Mansions Official PosterIf you read The Man with The Iron Fists Review i posted a while ago you would know exactly what I think about RZA, so I’m not going to elaborate on that…

    I will have to admit, I didn't really want to see Divergent. From the trailer I got a feeling that this is going to be some cheap copy of the Hunger Games molded into freaking Twilight, only without the vampires. Like most readers of this blog remember I really hated Twilight. I guess from this point my expectations were not really high for this film, only after a couple of friends of my asked me if I saw Divergent? My immediate reaction was no, why would I watch it. Divergent just didn’t look appealing enough. But I was in minority and they convinced me to check it out because it was…

    In The Blood is one of the most irregular films that are out there today. This style of a female rough, tough and uncompromising hero character is not something you see every day. Sure there was one girl in the 80's and 90's who raised hell, that was Cynthia Rothrock. But ever since she disappeared (I know that Cynthia keeps on doing movies but they are irrelevant) we didn't get to see a female action star that could fight the in this kind of a style and bring it to the toughest guys on the block, well until now.You can't go tougher Gina Carano, this former MMA professional…

    Director: Damon Beesley, Iain MorrisStarring: Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas, Blake HarrisonCertificate: 15Run-time: 96 minutesIN SHORT: Despite the gorgeous setting and enthusiasm of its cast, the Inbetweeners 2 feels like a quick cash-in rather than a memorable swansong.Returning exactly three summers after their first big screen outing, the 'inbetweeners' - Will, Simon, Jay and Neil - find themselves in Australia after Jay invites them over to explore the 'sex capital of the world'.

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

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

    25 Aug 2014 | 9:10 am
    Sly Stallone is back as writer, director and star in this 1982 sequel, which sees Rocky Balboa facing his strongest opponent yet: Clubber Lang, played by Mr. T, of BBC Three’s World’s Craziest Fools.  Rocky III, which is Roman for Rocky 3, follows exactly the same template as its predecessors: Rocky turns his back on boxing (for good this time), gets pulled back in, crisis in confidence, someone makes a speech, training montage, fight, and so on. This makes the movie too predictable, but no less entertaining. These films are so fluent in the language of the sports movie that…

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:13 am
    Following his survival through a whole match against legendary champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) is struggling to ride the wave of success. With promises of huge sums of money from advertising contracts, he splashes out on his new wife Adrian. But when he turns out to be a less-than competent media performer the money dries up. Meanwhile the champ wants a rematch, and will stop at nothing for Balboa’s blood… Stallone’s wise decision to end Rocky without an outright victory pays dividends here as Balboa maintains the underdog status that made…

    It’s 2057 and the Sun is dying. A small team of astronauts and scientists are on their way to the dwindling star with a stellar bomb. Their mission: to reignite the Sun. It’s a great idea for a piece of sci-fi, and one that could so easily become quite pompous. But with Danny Boyle in the director’s chair, Sunshine is as cool and confident as we’ve come to expect from one of Britain’s best directors. Boyle balances the sheer scale of this epic journey with a highly concentrated beam of humanity, thanks largely to the profound screenplay by frequent…
  • The Expendables III

    Alex Chafey
    16 Aug 2014 | 5:25 pm
    The movie opens with an ultra-secure mobile prison in a train carriage heading towards a fortress with a high value prisoner on board. But the prisoner is of interest to some other people: a team of ageing human sandbags, who try to spring the prisoner the only way they know how: from a helicopter with huge amounts of explosives. And so begins The Expendables III. These films are about two things: the action and the cast, and part 3 delivers both. It features ex-diver Jason Statham, ex-tax evader Wesley Snipes and ex-actor Sylvester Stallone with a roster of other big names and big bodies…
  • Rocky

    Dan Meier
    16 Aug 2014 | 5:57 am
    Boxing is at the centre of a number of great films, whether it’s Raging Bull, The Fighter or Grudge Match. One of the most iconic is of course Rocky, starring an inaudible Sylvester Stallone.

  • Chloë Moretz Says Piracy Killed Hit-Girl And ‘Kick-Ass 3’

    Zachary Rowell
    27 Aug 2014 | 7:04 am
    Fans of the Kick-Ass films will likely be disappointed after hearing what Chloë Moretz told Digital Spy recently. The 17-year-old actress was asked if she would be returning to her role as Hit-Girl in the Kick-Ass franchise. She replied with a very honest and gloomy answer. “Sadly, I think I’m done with the character. Hit-Girl was a very cool character, but I don’t think there will be any more movies. You make these movies for the fanboys, but nowadays everyone seems to pirate them rather than watch them in the movie theatre.” Before we show you the rest of her quote, we need to take…
  • Steve Carell Looks Super Creepy In New ‘Foxcatcher’ Poster

    26 Aug 2014 | 7:20 am
    Say goodbye to Michael Scott and hello to John du Pont. Steve Carell might not have been the obvious choice to play the convicted murderer, and that’s exactly why director Bennett Miller gave Carell the job. “That it’s not obvious was part of the reason why it was right.” Miller said. ”Because who we think [du Pont] is and who he turns out to be are very different things. I think some of the more obvious choices would have not worked, because right off the bat, you would put them in a category.” He added. It looks like the bold decision will pay off for both Miller and Carell.

    Josh Boone, the director of The Fault In Our Stars, and Warner Bros. are working hard to develop a big screen version of Stephen King’s post-apocalyptic story, The Stand. It’s being reported that they really want Matthew McConaughey to play villain Randall Flagg. According to Deadline, Matthew must choose between starring in The Stand or taking on the mining drama, Gold. The film was written by John Zinman and Patrick Massett, and is “set around a ruthless search for the precious metal.” The film is still very much up in the air, so if they could attach Matthew…

These behind the scene photos from the filming of MI:5 has Cruise looking more than ready to reprise the challenging role.

Despite the review if there was an Expendables 8, I would be there the first day.  The below is me putting on my film critic hat. I try to check out every single Sylvester Stallone flick because I love watching a good train wreck. Stallone is men’s answer to Madonna. He refuses to accept the fact that he is no longer 27 and can’t play the same rolls anymore. Instead, he desperately clutches onto his last vestiges of youth. It’s…

One example is a drone carry marionette version of Disney characters so they are suspended in the air. A second idea is to use drones as a light show, potentially replacing the fireworks display. This feature has been entitled “flixels.” The third patent details how UAVs will carry projection screens for sections of the amusement park’s shows.

    “World of Warcraft” was a game that the late Robin Williams was fond of, so much so that the comedian is being honoured into the “World of Warcraft” community through the character of “Robin the Entertainer.” So far three versions of William’s character have come to light, a djinn, which plays tribute to Williams’ genie role in “Aladdin,” a female character which gives a nod to his “Mrs. Doubtfire” role and a male character which speculation says will pay tribute to his Mork character from the 1970s sitcom “Mork and Mindy.” None of these characters have been…

    Ridley Scott seems to be making one major movie a year and this year’s film is Exodus: Gods and Kings. Even though he has two sequels he is developing, Scott still has time to make another film next year starring Matt Damon called The Martian; so when exactly will those two sequels happen. Prometheus 2 currently has release date set for March 4, 2016, but going based off what Scott told EW in a recent interview, Blade Runner 2 might be happening first. “It’s written and it’s damn good,” Scott says of the Blade Runner sequel. “Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor…

    AMC has released a new bonus clip from The Walking Dead season 4–included on the season’s Blu-ray/DVD release–that goes behind-the-scenes of the season’s most pivotal moment: Hershel’s death. It was one of the show’s most gripping and defining moments, one that executive producer Scott M. Gimple calls the “death of civilization”. The cast and crew of The Walking Dead all agree that from that point onward, there was no going back; which is probably why everything went to hell in the latter half of the season.

Syfy’s upcoming Z Nation takes place three years after a zombie apocalypse crippled the government and wiped out the majority of the United States. Z Nation has a few similarities in plot to The Walking Dead, most notably that they have a person trying to cure the world of the undead plague, but Josh McDermitt’s Eugene on The Walking Dead may have other plans in mind. The biggest difference between the two shows is that The Walking Dead is about survival whereas Z Nation is strictly about…

She appeared mystified that the story she had spent seven years creating had sold 30,000 copies in the U.K; it had beaten the odds of what her publishers had thought were possible (she had been told that children’s books just didn’t sell in large numbers). In a café, somewhere in Scotland, she sat unrecognisable to her now self, with long curly red hair and a baggy woollen jumper, a cup of coffee nestled on the table beside her elbow.

Initial findings suggest that the cause of death was suicide due to asphyxia. I don’t usually feel the need to comment on celebrity deaths, whilst every death is sad, and tragic in some of the recent losses that the celebrity world has had to come to terms with. I never really felt like my life would be affected. I appreciated their work I would notice and miss their presence on some of my favourite shows.

And looking back on it now, you’d never think it was 35 years old, as it absolutely stands the test of time, and is arguably better than some of the horror films released today.Telling the story of Michael Myers, who, at the age of 6 brutally murders his teenage sister after she sleeps with her boyfriend (this is where that horror trope comes from!)

If you’re not heading to the Con, never fear – you can take a gander at the exclusive poster below.     We’re really loving the old school style, and the inclusion of one of our favourite dinos (don’t go into the long…
  • The Fifty Shades trailer: All it has done is remind us not to go see it

    4 Dec 0001 | 4:00 pm
    Ok, so the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer is here, which means that once again it is time to reiterate just how truly terrible this film is going to be. In fact, it’s not only going to be terrible; it’s going to come into your house in the middle of night, tie you and your loved ones to the designer kitchen island unit, and proceed to give your feminist ideals the emotionally manipulative whipping of a lifetime. For those of you who are still wondering what the big deal is, here’s the bottom line: Fifty Shades of Grey glamorises and normalises emotionally abusive relationships, and no…
  • Rest in Peace Robin Williams

    4 Dec 0001 | 4:00 pm
    The world of entertainment has had more than its fair share of shocks over the years, but none will have hit quite so hard for some time as the sudden passing of Robin Williams. A true giant in comedy and acting circles, the news of his untimely demise sent social networking into overload and moved some of the biggest names on the planet to pay tribute. They probably don’t come much bigger than US President Barack Obama, who encapsulated the great man’s talents as both a performer and person: “Williams arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every…

I mean, the special effects during that sequence. Wow. The bullet squibs? I thought it was a joke at first, but nope, I’m supposed to take that seriously.

I appreciate that they’re cheap to make and an easy way for horror film directors to get in “the biz,” but still, they’re almost always 90% boring and 10% mildly interesting at the very end. But I was wrong about “The Pyramid.” It’s apparently just really bad shaky cam filmmaking. Anyways, take a gander at the first trailer for the movie. Which just goes to show you, when nosy…

Okay, so I don’t know if the film is officially PG-13, but it seems like it to me from this first trailer.

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.

Man-made robots protect the lives of the people still alive, but when one of these robots overrides a key protocol (that protects human life), Jacq Vaucan (Banderas), a Blade Runner-type figure, is ordered to locate the robot and eliminate it.

Drugged up puppets that rob convenience stores. Yes, it is as awesome as you think. This is a review of Foam Drive Renegades directed and co-written by Adam DeViller. It stars Glen Matthews, Matt Chisholm (co-writer), Gordon White and Rhys Bevan-John as the fearsome foursome of nitwits robbing a quick stop.

    There is a certain point where our love of literature meets our love of cinema. It happens when a screenplay is so well-written, so insightful, that we can quote from it as we would from any well-respected book. Words that make us think, ponder the world around us, criticize the society we live in, analyze the direction our lives are headed towards, or simply inspire us to take action. But of course, it is not enough to quote a magnificent line from a certain film; what’s equally important is the context in which the line was uttered – the back story – the riveting performance…

The Conjuring, a recent horror release that is based on the true story, involves possessed dolls and physical apparitions and it’s not necessarily something everyone would believe to be true, so how factual can the story be? Lone Survivor, Wolf of Wall Street, and Saving Mr. Banks all came out in the past year with these “true” origins, and often times it generates a little buzz because the accuracy of the statement is called into…

In between, Uli Edel's miniseries scrutinizes the enigmatic Houdini's personal life more than previous projects.

  • Movie Review: Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:00 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Less dense than its already thin predecessor, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For feels like a vast improvement nonetheless. Almost a decade ago, Sin City seemed almost revolutionary in the way it capitalized on then innovative digital technology that allowed directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller to shoot their movie on virtual, green-screen sets. Based on Miller's own graphic novel series, the film carried a certain irony. It was a black-and-white film noir homage with a stripped down, DIY sensibility despite hosting a cast of hip actors and utilizing cutting edge filmmaking…
  • Movie Review: Calvary (2014)

    19 Aug 2014 | 7:19 am
    by Tony Dayoub Both film noir and philosophical exploration of the current state of Catholicism, Calvary is curiously resonant in spite of, or maybe because of, its fusion of widely discordant elements. Reflecting its fractured nature, Calvary could be said to work as either a black comedy or a grim drama, a character study with a definitive central performance by Brendan Gleeson as Father James or an ensemble piece featuring the eclectic cast of oddballs that make up his congregation. Whatever the case, it is quite powerful in all respects, setting out to delineate the beleaguered priest and…

    Plenty of celebrities have been taking on the ALS ice bucket challenge recently, but none of them are more entertaining to watch than the king of weird, David Lynch.  As an enormous fan of Lynch’s work, it pleases me to see him embrace “the challenge” by getting two buckets dumped on him, one containing a double shot of espresso, and playing Somewhere Over the Rainbow on a trumpet in between.  God bless you sir and please make more movies.

Although the film itself chooses style over substance, I was astounded at the level of detail and care that went into making this look and feel like it came straight out of the ’70s. Deep Sleep follows the story of a killer who discovers he has become the target of another killer. Shot in entirely POV, the…

  • Pathfinder

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

For the twenty-first century has evolved the bureaucracy of the banking world to a virtual level of existence, featuring the utilization of wire transfers and mobile transactions. How did we ever conduct our banking needs without technology?   "Firewall" is a 2006 thriller that incorporates this cyber technology into the age old deed of bank robbery. Harrison Ford, an exceptional veteran actor who remains engaged…

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

    9 Aug 2014 | 11:03 am
    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes     The twenty-first century has been a trying period for the film industry, as Hollywood strives to produce the caliber of pictures that permeated its Golden Age, the 1970s, with considerably less talent and imaginative writing. Consequently, creating an overabundance of reboots intending to bring classic films into context for a new generation of moviegoers. "Planet of the Apes" is arguably one of the most influential science fiction films to ever grace our presence, so the inevitable re-fashioning of this product was never deemed…

    Hercules ★★1/2     The character of Hercules has been dissected in various forms of media for as long as I can remember. A favored persona for his charismatic appeal and entertainment value. The self entitled film "Hercules" is one of two pictures this year that have delved into the elaborate history of this Greek demigod and produced an adventure tale with little substance. Although this film contains the star power of Dwayne Johnson, it cannot overcome the limitations of a subpar script and poor direction.     This emotionally starved rendition of…
