    (Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Monday's “Pitbull Night” episode of ABC's “Dancing With the Stars.”) After an off week, Alfonso Ribeiro took command again in a season that has really come down to him against the ladies. None of the other guys remaining in the competition can hold a candle to the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star. Ironically, and sadly, Jonathan Bennett turned in what was perhaps his best yet performance with a very strong jazz routine on Monday night. Unfortunately, it was too little too late for the “Mean…

  • "Ramchand Pakistani": An Odyssey of Two Worlds

    Omer M. Mozaffar
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:52 am
    Chronicling actual events, Mehreen Jabbar’s “Ramchand Pakistani” (2008) is a quiet movie about waiting. Will the family get reunited? When we wait, we hold our breath. When we hold our breath, we wonder when we can breathe again. In Hollywood movies, we expect an ending that allows us to exhale. In indie movies and foreign films, the drama heightens because we do not know any more than the characters themselves. This film is from Pakistan, by a first time filmmaker, about Indians. Meaning, unless you watch those legendary Pakistani serials, you have no idea how things will end. Ramchand…
  • Beauty In The Broken: Filmmaker Bill Morrison’s Visions of Decay Celebrated in New Box Set

    Glenn Kenny
    20 Oct 2014 | 8:15 am
    “Sublime Decay” is the phrase the arts critic and cultural entrepreneur Lawrence Wechsler coined to describe the work of filmmaker Bill Morrison, writing in the New York Times over a decade ago. It’s not an inapt term. While in the normal world of film viewing, peeling emulsion on a strip of celluloid is a sign of disintegration and potential ruin, to Morrison it’s the key to a series of different, magical images. A face nearly a century old loses half of its definition; in its place is mere blank space that a projection bulb exposes without mercy. For a normal projectionist, this is…

    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.

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.

    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.

    1 Oct 2014 | 7:19 am
    GoPro Introduces HERO4: The Most Powerful GoPro Lineup, Ever | GoPro News GoPro announced their anticipated HERO4 camera that now shoots 4K (did they plan their model numbering system years ago to coincide with the rise of 4K?). 4K for $500, not bad. How good is the quality? The release trailer with action shots from the camera says pretty frickin good. I’d say the improvement in quality is not just the resolution but the new Protune feature, letting you manually control the camera’s color, sharpness, ISO limit, and exposure. The Silver edition is $100 less. While it…
  • NASA Developing Automated Air Traffic Control System for Drones – But How to Know Where to Go?

    Joey Daoud
    1 Sep 2014 | 12:40 pm
    At NASA’s Moffett Field, about four miles from Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., the agency has been developing a drone traffic management program that would in effect be a separate air traffic control system for things that fly low to the ground — around 400 to 500 feet for most drones. Much like the air traffic control system for conventional aircraft, the program would monitor the skies for weather and traffic. Wind is a particular hazard, because drones weigh so little compared with regular planes. The system would also make sure the drones do not run into buildings,…
  • 1-Hour Photo App Brings Analog Patience to iPhone

    Joey Daoud
    23 Jul 2014 | 12:07 pm
    I’m a big fan of apps that bring back some of the restraints of analog technology that we’ve  completely forgotten with digital. Now I’m not giving up my digital cameras or editing programs any time soon, but the restraints are fun exercises in creativity and patience. 1-Hour Photo is a new app that’s pretty self explanatory from the title. Take a photo, wait 60 minutes, see your photo. Just like the old days, except you don’t have to drive down to the photo lab. Will this be my new go to photo app? No. But when you have to wait an hour to see your photo, you…
  • Experimenting with Natural Looking HDR in Zion

    Joey Daoud
    17 Jul 2014 | 1:49 pm
    When NAB wrapped in April I wanted to take a few days to explore some of the great national parks in the area. So I rented a car and did a small camping road trip through Zion and Bryce Canyon. The south of Utah is an insanely beautiful assortment of one national park after another, buffered by state parks and national forests. There’s a state park named Kodachrome, after the film stock used to capture its vibrant colors in National Geographic’s first photo series of the location. Plus there’s Arches and Canyonlands, which I had to save for another trip. While at NAB I…
  • The GH4 RAW Enigma & 4K Footage of an Owl Eating a Fish

    Joey Daoud
    4 May 2014 | 5:59 pm
    GH4 arrived on Friday. I took it out to Big Cypress National Preserve to give it a spin and play with the Panasonic 100-300mm 4-5.6 lens I rented. This isn’t a camera review post but overall the camera was great. I shot a lot of stills and some 4K video. Below you can see an owl chowing down on a fish. The stabilization is amazing – this was all handheld at 100mm or 300mm (that’d be 200mm to 600mm in 35mm). Out in the field I connected the SD card to the iPad to see what would happen. The pictures popped up along with the 4K video, which surprised me. I imported a clip and…

  • Peter Sohn Draws a Dino in Fun Tease for Pixar's 'The Good Dinosaur'

    Alex Billington
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:16 pm
    Well hello there little friend! Pixar has a new character to introduce us to today, and his name is Arlo. He's a dinosaur, and he's a cutie, of course. Disney-Pixar has posted a short new video to their Twitter account @DisneyPixar with a message introducing us to director Peter Sohn and his lead character Arlo from The Good Dinosaur. The film was originally supposed to be out this summer, but ended up pushed back to November 2015, late next year. Word is the movie has been "dismantled" & "completely reimagined", which means we're not sure what to expect or if any of the early details…
  • Watch: Fincher, Affleck, Pike & Flynn Talk 'Gone Girl' on Charlie Rose

    Ethan Anderton
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:04 pm
    There's no doubt that Gone Girl is a hit, and it's undoubtedly of the most successful films David Fincher has ever directed, and it's likely reached audiences that otherwise might not seek out the filmmaker's work. And if you're like me, then you're hungry to hear Fincher, writer Gillian Flynn and stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike talk about the film itself. They all showed up for a chat on "Charlie Rose" and the result is a solid 36-minute discussion about the making of the film, whether the characters were likable, and of course, the film's commentary on marriage and the insane world of…
  • Eddie Murphy & 'Driving Miss Daisy' Director 'Cook' Up New Drama

    Ethan Anderton
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:19 pm
    Fans will see Eddie Murphy get back into Axel Foley mode soon enough with Beverly Hills Cop 4 on the way. Plus, there's still that Twins sequel in the works that will team him up with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito in the cleverly titled Triplets. But before he makes a couple more comedies, he's going to take some time to get into drama briefly. In what will be his first non-animated, non-comedy role since the 2006 musical Dreamgirls, Empire reports that Murphy is slated to star in Cook, a new project from Driving Miss Daisy director Bruce Beresford, that originally had Samuel L.
  • Marvel Gave Robert Downey Jr. the 'A' from Stark Tower in 'Avengers'

    Ethan Anderton
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:16 pm
    Many lead stars of the big screen have taken mementos from the sets of various films they've worked on. It's a nice token to remember that specific time in your life. Sometimes they steal them, other times they pay for them, but sometimes the production company just decides to give them to the stars. However, we're betting that no one has a movie memento as cool as what Robert Downey Jr. received from the set of The Avengers, courtesy of Marvel. You might remember a certain "A" from the sign on the side of Stark Tower, mostly because it was the only letter leftover after the action in…

    The viral marketing for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I has been pretty damn great. In addition to the traditional trailers and posters, the viral spots featuring President Snow and the rebels of District 13 interrupting them have been a great way to immerse fans into the world of Panem. Now they're going the extra mile as Lionsgate and Google have partnered to create District Voices, a five episode series that will pop up on YouTube throughout the week, intended to act as programming that citizens of Panem might see on Capitol TV. The first video went live today, and there will be a…

  • ‘Cabin Fever’ Remake Will Use Eli Roth’s Original Script

    Russ Fischer
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    We’re far enough away from some of the big horror moments of the last decade that reboot time is coming around for some. Cabin Fever never really caught on as a franchise — Eli Roth‘s debut film made his career as a filmmaker, but the Cabin Fever films that followed have, er, struggled. (Ti West lobbied to have his name removed from the direct sequel after producers took control of the edit, and the prequel Patient Zero has had a low-key release.) Now there’s a Cabin Fever remake brewing, which we heard about earlier this year. The new info is that Eli Roth is on board…
  • ‘Drive’ Gets a New Soundtrack for UK Broadcast

    Russ Fischer
    20 Oct 2014 | 4:30 pm
    Part of the reason Nicolas Winding Refn‘s film Drive took on an unusual life was the film’s skillful use of music. Beyond the original electronic compositions from Cliff Martinez (The Knick, Only God Forgives), the heartbeat of the very quiet film was provided by pop and electronic songs from Kavinsky and Chromatics. Music was a more important aspect of Drive than is the case in many other films, and the movie probably wouldn’t have enjoyed the same cultural impact without those sounds. So naturally, there’s a plan to re-score Drive with entirely different pop songs.
  • Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ Gets A Cute “Teaser”

    Germain Lussier
    20 Oct 2014 | 4:00 pm
    There’s no new Pixar movie in 2014, but we’ll get two from the studio in 2015. June brings Pete Docter’s Inside Out (which you can read lots about here) and then, November 25, 2015, they’ll release The Good Dinosaur. The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled to hit theaters in Summer 2014, but a change of directors and lack of confidence in the story pushed it back over a year. New director Peter Sohn doesn’t want people to forget the film is coming, though, and released a cute, short little teaser on Twitter. Check it out below. Here’s the new Good…

  • Valdivia 2014 Review: BEAVERLAND Starts A Controversial Discussion

    There are documentaries out there made to put forward a choice or a point of view, films made to make a statement on what we do as a society. Some of them even try to do something to change the portion of society that it is trying to portray. I even like some of them.I mean, when they started, they were well done and well constructed think-pieces; they represented someone's POV; they were auteur pieces, like the films of Michael Moore, that whatever position you stand on, must still be applauded as movies that are well constructed and edited in a powerful way, with great scripts and means to…

    Casey Wilson and Ken Marino are perfectly matched, niche comedians, and NBC‘s latest effort, Marry Me, looks to be a vehicle perfectly constructed for them. Of course, that still leaves open the question of whether or not people are going to jump on board. Brought to you by one of the writers of Happy Endings, and obviously with one of its stars, the show has a connection to the comedic stylings of that show, but clearly pulls from the “cornier” comedic abilities of Wilson and Marino. Also like Happy Endings, the show’s only chance at survival is to run as far and as…

    Off all the options heading your way as Halloween approaches, Nightcrawler looks to be the oddest, and creepiest. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a man who may or may not have a screw loose, but definitely has his eye on making his own way in the world. With apparently few options, he sets off to create his own job as a crime journalist, and things soon get rather hairy. The film has released two new clips, and they show off Gyllenhaal’s ability to convince us that maybe he finds it a little too easy to be very weird.

As Hank Palmer, Downey Jr. finds himself in the middle of several emotional tangles when he has to return to the small town he left for New York City, and is forced to reconnect with his estranged father (Robert Duvall). That would make for a rough enough time out from Hank’s life as a big time attorney, but Hank not only has to interact with his…

While the usual course is that shows either kick off with this sort of theory in mind, or slowly succumb to the allure of an easy ratings/effort ratio, AHS, because of its “season” format, gives us both. The first season, while solidly in the campy horror genre, laid out some interesting characters who were set on the…

  • Gone Girl

    Alan Bacchus
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:01 pm
    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.

    17 Sep 2014 | 1:42 pm
    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.

It’s a strange mix of epic swagger and Hollywood heroism and the intellectual cinematic gymnastics which Aronofsky has been known for. Ultimately it’s mildly rewarding and nothing of the intense feelings of emotion he made his name for in his more successful pictures.Noah (2014) dir.

  • Forecast (cont.): 'The Best of Me,' 'Men, Women & Children,' 'Birdman'

    16 Oct 2014 | 3:55 pm
    << Continued from "Weekend Forecast"Opening at 2,936 theaters, The Best of Me is the ninth Nicholas Sparks adaptation to hit the big screen. Sparks adaptations have been fairly consistent-the last four movies opened between $16 million and $30.5 million. However, the highest-grossing entry remains 2004's The Notebook, which ended its run with just north of $81 million.The Best of Me seems to fit nicely in to the Sparks playbook. It's a romance (of course), and poster...

  • Movie review: 'Yogananda’ gave yoga, meditation to America

    By David Lewis
    16 Oct 2014 | 1:06 pm
    Sometimes these goals get in each other’s way in this reverential yet long-overdue documentary, which examines a figure who came to America in the 1920s and went on to inspire people around the world. Directors Paola Di Florio and Lisa Leeman have lots to work with here: excellent archival footage and a bevy of testimonals from such luminaries as Deepak Chopra and the late George Harrison. (Copies of Yogananda’s book were handed out at Steve Jobs’ memorial service.) Though some of these commentaries come off as cheerleader-ish, for the most part they are interesting and provide useful…
  • 'The Best of Me’ review: Some of the worst of Nicholas Sparks

    By Michael Ordoña
    16 Oct 2014 | 1:00 am
    Dawson Cole. Because of course. Welcome back to the world of Nicholas Sparks, with its kisses in the rain and unconvincing obstacles. The rough saint from the wrong side of the tracks and the princess who must watch him suffer; the tortured contrivances that keep them apart; some disaster intended as a surprise; and lots and lots of violins. Rest assured, some awful happenstance will keep them apart until they become Marsden and Monaghan, and then there will be an even more improbable plot device in the stars. [...] you know, fate. Despite all this, and some real howlers in the breathless…
  • 'Lilting’ review: Together in grief: his mom, his mate

    By Thomas Lee
    16 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    In this sympathetic film from writer-director Hong Khaou, Richard (Ben Whishaw) and Kai (Andrew Leung) have been living together for four years, but Kai is too afraid to tell his mother, Junn (Pei-pei Cheng), whom he has just settled into a home for senior citizens. Lilting” works because of the superb performances from its two leads, especially Whishaw, whose tortured gloom offers a striking contrast to the cool, unflappable “Q” role he presented in “Skyfall. [...] in some surprising ways, “Lilting” is not really about homosexuality but rather how loneliness and fear are human…
  • 'The Book of Life’ review: Bursting with la vida

    By Michael Ordoña
    16 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    The vibrant animated feature “The Book of Life” is a cheeky celebration of Mexican folklore with a solid cast, an irreverent sensibility and gorgeous visuals. The colors, the music, the vocal performances and the wild visual imagination all feel as if those making it were having actual fun. In his feature debut, writer-director Jorge R. Gutiérrez (who designed the ornate characters with his wife, animator-painter Sandra Equihua) takes a devil-may-care attitude with everything from his musical choices — largely mariachi-fied versions of pop songs such as Radiohead’s “Creep” — to…
  • 'Fury’ review: Brad Pitt in command of World War II epic

    By Mick LaSalle
    16 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    Awash in millennial optimism, living in peace and prosperity, Americans enjoyed contemplating the struggles that defined their parents’ and grandparents’ lives. In “Fury,” as the crew, led by their Sergeant (Brad Pitt), rolls into headquarters, writer-director David Ayer cuts to images of the surroundings, such as a forlorn steer, separated from the herd, and a bulldozer pushing bodies into a mass grave. Ayer is best known as the screenwriter of “Training Day,” and, in an odd way, “Fury” bears a family resemblance to it. The story is mainly told from the standpoint of the…

  • Questions surrounding open access licensing

    Alice
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:30 pm
    Open access (OA) publishing stands at something of a crossroads. OA is now part of the mainstream. But with increasing success and increasing volume come increasing complexity, scrutiny, and demand. There are many facets of OA which will prove to be significant challenges for publishers over the next few years. Here I’m going to focus on one — licensing — and discuss how the arguments seen over licensing in recent months shine a light on the difference between OA as a movement, and OA as a reality. Today’s authors face a number of conflicting pressures. Publish in a high…

    As an Africanist historian committed to reaching broader publics, I was thrilled when the research team for the BBC’s genealogy program Who Do You Think You Are? contacted me late last February about an episode they were working on that involved the subject of some of my research, mixed race relationships in colonial Ghana. I was even more pleased when I realized that their questions about shifting practices and perceptions of intimate relationships between African women and European men in the Gold Coast, as Ghana was then known, were ones I had just explored in a newly published American…

  • Neurology and psychiatry in Babylon

    How rapidly does medical knowledge advance? Very quickly if you read modern newspapers, but rather slowly if you study history. Nowhere is this more true than in the fields of neurology and psychiatry. It was believed that studies of common disorders of the nervous system began with Greco-Roman Medicine, for example, epilepsy, “The sacred disease” (Hippocrates) or “melancholia”, now called depression. Our studies have now revealed remarkable Babylonian descriptions of common neuropsychiatric disorders a millennium earlier. There were several Babylonian Dynasties with their capital at…

    Jauja. Kristin here: The Vancouver International Film Festival ended this past Friday. I had hoped to post a wrap-up entry over the weekend, but illness intervened. 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…

Kristin here: One of the great pleasures of the Vancouver International Film Festival is the ability it provides for a quick trip around the world, especially to countries whose films are seldom seen in a non-festival setting. In one day I was able to see an Algerian film and one from the Ivory Coast. It struck me that both of them reflected how far digital filmmaking has come in small producing countries. When digital cameras came on the scene, they were hailed as a way for people in nations with little or no filmmaking infrastructure to create movies. The results,…

He keeps singing The Beatles’ Lovely Rita whenever Dexter’s girlfriend is on, he thinks Deb looks weird and he’s confused that the Ice Truck Killer has yet to murder an ice truck.

    Monday I watched Beard Face peg the washing out today. It took him 37 attempts to put one bed sheet on the line. The complex task of folding it in half and placing it evenly over the line was clearly beyond the old boy. I could have watched this spectacle for the remainder of the day but opted to do something more gratifying such as knocking a pen off a table or purposefully missing the litter tray just to annoy my owners.

This is the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes–even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with “lunacy and sorrow”; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. In more than thirty languages, in more than forty countries–with more than ten million copies in print–this novel provides almost…

  • The 'God's Not Dead' Sequel You've Always Wanted Is Finally Happening

    20 Oct 2014 | 1:08 pm
    As you probably know, God's Not Dead followed one intrepid college student on a mission to prove to his class that his atheist professor's assertion of God's death has been greatly exaggerated. It's the sort of story that begs for a sequel, and Pure Flix CEO and managing partner Michael Scott is not one to deny such a tale its due. As such, we could get a God's Not Dead follow-up as early as next year, in which God will presumably continue to not be dead. What else will happen? Will another professor force another college class to convert to atheism? Or will our beloved student from the first…

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Piotr Naskrecki is a entomologist and photographer at Harvard University's Museum of Comparative Zoology but, after his recent encounter with a giant spider, he'll probably look into another field, or maybe another planet. Yes, Naskrecki says he was taking a walk in Guyana when he heard something scuttling underfoot. He turned his light on it, expecting to see a small mammal but instead, "couldn't quite understand what I was seeing," That's because human eyes were never meant to rest upon the South American Goliath birdeater—a spider that measures one foot across, with a body the size of…
  • Will Idaho Pastors Be Forced to Conduct Same-Sex Weddings?

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:34 pm
    An interesting legal wrinkle in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho has drawn the national microscope after Donald and Evelyn Knapp—two ordained ministers who run a wedding chapel called the Hitching Post—moved for a temporary restraining order to be brought against an antidiscrimination ordinance. Essentially, Idaho has banned discrimination against same-sex couples. That ordinance makes an exception for religious institutions like churches, but the Hitching Post is a for-profit business—which means the Knapps could be committing a misdemeanor by refusing to marry same-sex couples. “If you turn…

    Last time Jenny Slate and her husband, Dean Fleischer-Camp, released one of their irresistible "Marcel the Shell with Shoes On" videos, Slate was mostly known for her one season on SNL. These days, her future is looking bright, with her lead turn in Obvious Child grabbing all sorts of critical acclaim, as well as her note-perfect portrayal as Jean Ralphio's sister, Mona Lisa, on Parks & Rec. But she hasn't forgotten her best character, a tiny, sneakered shell named Marcel. But there's now a children's book to market—called The Most Surprised I've Ever Been—and she's back with a new…

    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

    Dave Taylor
    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,…

    Whistle-blowers are rarely appreciated, even when we desperately want to know the story and get the inside scoop on what’s happening. It’s not just true in real life, it’s a trope of cinema too, from Cloud Atlas to The China Syndrome, if you go public with what’s really going on in your company or organization, it generally doesn’t end well. Kill the Messenger examines one of the most shocking misuses of power to ever come out of that most corrupt of agencies, the Central Intelligence Agency: In the 1990’s, the CIA was helping Nicaraguan rebels by helping…

    At the brink of human destruction, with almost all of the Earth’s population killed by a massive increase in solar storms, one city remains. It’s humanity’s last gasp, complete with artificial cloud cover created and managed by the primitive Automata Pilgrim 7000 robots. Millions of them. All working to keep the last vestige of humanity alive. In a nod to Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics, the millions of robots in this dismal future world are ruled by two inalterable, built-in security protocols: Robots are prohibited from harming any form of life and Robots cannot…

    Children’s films are generally pretty darn benign, with little tension and few intense visual effects or scenes. Yeah, sure, the hero’s in peril from the monster or bad guy, but most children’s films take the Disney way out of 95% sweet, fun, light and 5% tension. Don’t want to scare the kiddies, after all. Except drama is all about tensions, and great storytelling is all about the protagonist being threatened and having to figure out how to overcome. A few years ago, the stop-motion animated feature Coraline offered just such a dark vision, a compelling and visually…

    You can't deny the power of Disney's Frozen--that movie is more powerful than all of us combined, times infinity! And while Disney is doing all it can to satisfy our Frozen desires moving forward (from shorts to sequels to musicals to ice shows), it's hard not to anticipate the studio's next creation. In the immediate future, that would be Big Hero 6 (in theaters November 7), but in 2016 we'll be getting a new thrilling adventure called Moana -- and Disney has just...Read MoreRead Comments

So for the entire month of October, we will be dealing with horror fare that you can find in the “New Release” section of Netflix or (if you still have one) your local video store.

According to Wikipedia, this particular gate had a rather unsavory reputation, and in Kurosawa's film was meant to represent, “the moral and physical decay of Japanese civilization and culture”. That would appear to be the case…

    Review by Matt FinleyAdapted from a novel by Chad Kultgen, MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN tries to make some sort of statement about the role of technology in our everyday lives. I can't remember angrily swearing under my breath at a film as much as I did during the last third of Jason Reitman's maudlin, self-important slurry of unlikable characters living out broad melodramas in a grim caricature of the digital age. Though imbued with brief moments of impressive filmmaking and fantastic acting, no amount of skill from cast or crew could rescue this movie from the sheer, unapologetic emotional…

On top of that, there's a pretty decent story, one that takes the tired old love triangle formula and actually does something a little bit different with it.The three characters at the center of the plot are childhood friends Manolo (Diego Luna), Maria (Zoe Saldana), and Joaquin (Channing Tatum). It's obvious even when the trio are kids that Manolo and Joaquin both have a crush on Maria, something…

He currently stars in DirectTV’s MMA drama Kingdom, which was just renewed for a second season, and may soon follow that up playing the lead in the upcoming Skyline sequel. As a low-budget science fiction film, Skyline received mostly negative reviews when it debuted in late 2010. However, the thriller about an alien invasion ended up grossing $79 million…

    Last week saw the quiet, very limited release of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, a remake of the 1976 horror film, which was produced by American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions. It’s a rare release in a year that has so far been pretty quiet when it comes to horror remakes (unless you count monster-sized disaster movie Godzilla). This lull in the subgenre of horror remakes might be partially due to the fact that a lot of the current profit is attached to recent original franchises like Insidious, Paranormal Activity and The Purge,…

Of course, not all of the upcoming films are about superheroes; David Ayers’ Suicide Squad, which was officially announced by Warner Bros. last week as the next DC film to follow Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, will leave the good guys at home in favor of introducing some lesser-known bad guys to the DC movie universe. As the name might suggest, quite a lot of Suicide Squad members have met sticky ends, which means that the…

    Yeah, this spot from one of Coca-Cola’s overseas branches (not sure which — Singapore? They’re very big on outreach over there) pushes the heartwarming button hard, and makes a certain fizzy, refreshing drink the keystone to its lesson, but at least it’s in the service of motivating better connection between fellow human beings, so I’m willing to let my stone-like heart thaw a bit if that’s what it takes. Besides, I’m 98% Coca-Cola anyway, so what am I griping about? Check the video out below.

    Richard Lewis stars in his acting debut DIARY OF YOUNG COMIC and (inset) takes it up more than few notches in DRUNKS. You’ll hear it in the show, and I’m not going to hide it: I was kinda intimidated talking to Richard Lewis. A brilliant comedian with a lightning-fast mind, Lewis has bested interviewers with far more supple intellects than yours truly. To add to my anxiety, I went into the discussion having watched DRUNKS, the 1995 feature film in which Lewis reveals a rarely seen facility for soul-searing drama. Fully aware of his range and his skill, I knew this discussion was…

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.

    In the Competition at this year's Festival de Cannes, Jean-Luc Godard bid goodbye to language, while down the boulevard in the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs (Directors' Fortnight), the master Ghibli animator Isao Takahata bid goodbye to cinema. Godard might assert it's one and the same. Certainly The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, Takahata's final film and one adapted from the classic 10th century Japanese folktale "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter," leaves the earth behind; at its end, the princess who appears to a humble peasant returns to her place of birth, the moon.

    When you’ve released something you’ve created, in a way it no longer belongs to you (unless you’re Bill Watterson, he's got Calvin and Hobbes on lockdown). It can be strange to see something you created evolve into something completely different that you would have never dreamed up. As a songwriter, I’ve heard some pretty wild interpretations from fans about the stories and meanings behind songs I've written. I can only imagine what it would feel like for the creators of comic book characters, whose creations are constantly being updated and reinvented by other people.Batman and…

In a recent interview with Deadline he reveals what what his big and awesome contribution was."I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold.

That will likely come as a surprise, but hear him out, he kind of has a point. And really, as far as religions go, one that only requires an hour of worship on about twelve Saturdays a year is a pretty sweet deal. In fact, if we run with this and push for an official church, all our Doctor Who gear purchases could be tax deductible. This is sounding better and better. We could even have official Who…

    Images via: Fanart.tv The latest trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar was extremely evocative. The story itself and the spectacular visuals play a large part in that, obviously, but Thomas Bergersen’s stirring track “Final Frontier,” which is used heavily throughout the trailer, deserves much of the credit as well. You could pretty much cut anything to that song and make grown men shed a tear or two. The Unusual Suspect does just that with this Interstellar-style trailer for Space Balls. It makes Mel Brooks’ hilarious 1987 Star Wars parody look like an exceptionally epic…

  • AMCi: BIRDMAN Does Big Box Office Business

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:34 pm
    Though it only opened in four locations, over the weekend “Birdman” flew high (sorry!) at the box office. The film got $415,000 in total, which may seem like it doesn’t compare to the $23.5m the box office winner “Fury” made, but when you break it down to the amount per location, it actually made an average of $103,750 per theatre. The per theatre average for “Fury” was $7,406. Understandably, the good folks at Fox Searchlight are pleased. Frank Rodriquez, the SVP of Distribution said, "We are truly amazed and gratified at the reception that 'Birdman'…

    The Horror Movie Show

    Jerry
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:51 pm
    A Bill Oberst Jr. retrospective Good day to you, poor put-upon listener. Welcome to another edition of The Horror Movie Show, hosted by scary guys Jerry & Mark. This particular show is entirely about one of our fave-raves & an ultra-busy horror actor: Bill Oberst Jr. The man has made a lot of movies & will undoubtedly make a lot more — including some that are not horror. But the dudes will just be concentrating on a half-dozen frighteners, along with a preview of the then-unavailable Circus of the Dead. All the movies discussed are from 2012 (Children of Sorrow, Abraham Lincoln…

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

    Purging, fish stories & galaxy guardians Howdy-do folks. After taking a few weeks off, your tanned & rested hosts Jerry & Mark return with a powerhouse episode of The Horror Movie Show — now with 100% more Vitamin C! That should end the rumours the show causes scurvy. The guys begin by taking a baseball bat to the belaboured brains of The Purge: Anarchy, written & directed by James DeMonaco, the same dude who made the first in this series of fantasy flicks. While some might say this is brutality for the sake of ticket sales, there is more to this look-see into an evening…

    Blade Runner still sharp as a razor Hello, good day & welcome to The Horror Movie Show, hosted as ever by those madcap zanies Jerry & Mark. This episode features a variety of sci-fi & horror titles, so there is something for everybody. Or at least some body for every thing. The guys begin the show talking about the newest X-Men movie, the big-budget FX-fest one would expect. Is it better than one might reasonably expect? Is the Pope an agnostic? It’s possible. A chestnut from the long-ago-and-far-away youth of Mark & Jerry, director Ridley Scott‘s final kick at the…

    Scientology fiction Hallo folks! The Horror Movie Show is moderately proud to bring you episode #153, hosted as always by Mark & Jerry. 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. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received a lukewarm reception on its release. Jerry & Mark…

    Immortal Ephemera

  • The Mad Doctor of Market Street (1942), Universal Horror With Lionel Atwill

    Cliff Aliperti
    20 Oct 2014 | 12:45 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal Ephemera The Mad Doctor of Market Street shows some promise, especially during its start, but torpedoes most of its intrigue through the over-the-top comedy efforts of Nat Pendleton and Una Merkel. Which of the two is more annoying is up for debate, but I’ll take Merkel. Despite her top billing, presumably awarded by contractual dictate, the true leading lady in The Mad Doctor of Market Street is Claire Dodd, who gets to do a lot more than usual in this, one of her final screen roles. Dodd is capable in her part, though nothing…
  • Men Against the Sky (1940) – Richard Dix’s Ace of Aces Goes Modern

    Cliff Aliperti
    15 Oct 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraFour stars share billing on RKO’s Men Against the Sky, and that seems about right. Richard Dix is the best known of the four, and is cast in the most glamorous role in the film, as alcoholic former “Ace of Aces,” Phil Mercedes. Men Against the Sky came a couple of years into Dix’s return to RKO, the studio that propelled him to his greatest talkie fame when he starred in Academy Award winning Best Picture Cimarron back in 1931. Ace of Aces (1933) was another popular role for Dix during his first stay with the…
  • One Night at Susie’s (1930) – Movie Compared to Short Story, Plus Helen Ware Biography

    Cliff Aliperti
    9 Oct 2014 | 3:18 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraFirst order of business, One Night at Susie’s is not 92 minutes long. At least the recently released DVD-R from Warner Archive isn’t, despite what it may say on the DVD case or their website. It runs a hair under 62 minutes. Problem is, nobody seems to agree upon how long it is, and never did. The IMDb goes with 85 minutes, as does an original 1930 review from Film Daily. Turner Classic Movies lists no running length on their database page, though they do list it at 62 minutes on a page including their upcoming…
  • Five and Ten (1931) Starring Marion Davies and Leslie Howard

    Cliff Aliperti
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:55 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraMGM’s Five and Ten, from a novel by Fannie Hurst, is a well-filmed, well-acted movie about a potentially exciting subject, but ultimately a story that didn’t focus on the topics or characters that I really cared about. Marion Davies stars as a Barbara Hutton like heiress, in what was being billed as her first wholly dramatic role in a talking picture. Her Jennifer Rarick falls in love at first sight with Berry Rhodes (Leslie Howard), a caddish architect of the established New York society, whose best trait is his…
  • TCM Preview October 2014 – A Look Inside My Now Playing Guide

    Cliff Aliperti
    30 Sep 2014 | 11:21 pm
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraIt didn’t have to be, but October was primed to be a letdown after August’s Summer Under the Stars and September’s Pre-Code Fridays on TCM. On the plus side, there are several early talkies playing that I have yet to see and am anxious to get on my DVR, including many 1929-30 rarities. While the career of October’s Star of the Month, Janet Leigh, runs slightly later than range of movies I typically lobby for, she’s an actress that I enjoy, so I can’t complain. She also gives TCM a good reason to roll out Psycho…

  • For Our Consideration: The unstoppable majesty of Chris Messina

    20 Oct 2014 | 10:00 pm
    There’s a particular ailment that afflicts actors of a certain caliber. These actors are cursed with being exceptional at what they do. They bring a depth and nuance to their roles, even when they’re turning in a 30-second cameo for a Jim Carrey vehicle. They’re always a welcome screen presence, exuding a charisma that can be adapted to nearly any purpose. Put simply, they’re versatile. Yet, in addition to being talented character actors, they also have that wonderful element of familiarity: In movie stars, it’s sometimes called the “it” factor, but with these actors, it’s…

    In response to theater owners publicly complaining about Christopher Nolan’s plan to release Interstellar early on 35mm and 70mm film, Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League has written a Deadline guest column sharing his thoughts on the future of film exhibition. League serves on the board of the American Genre Film Archive and maintains 35mm facilities at over half of the 19 current Alamo Drafthouse locations, facilities that make cool things like Weird Wednesday possible. So obviously League is in favor of exhibitors continuing to screen movies on celluloid, a practice that he maintains is…
  • Newswire: Cabin Fever being remade using original script, newer clothes and hairstyles

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:14 pm
    Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever was released in 2002 and is therefore totally unwatchable due to its laughably out-of-date, 2002-era clothing and hairstyles. Fortunately, Roth recognizes that times have changed, and has signed on to executive produce a Cabin Fever remake that will update that archaic film for today’s modern audiences, using contemporary actors wearing contemporary dungarees. They’ll then peel away these modern pants to reveal the same old flesh-eating virus, as Deadline reports that the new Cabin Fever will use the exact same script Roth wrote with Randy Pearlstein more than a…

  • Here’s a shocker – Destiny is the top-selling game of September

    John 'Spartan' Nguyen
    20 Oct 2014 | 4:49 pm
    Here’s news that will complete surprise you to the core. The highly anticipated game from Bungie, Destiny, is the number-one video game for the month of September.

    Art by rahzzah Warner Bros. made some big announcements last week regarding its future DC movie lineup. One of them included the confirmation of Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) as Aquaman, the King of Atlantis. The actor made an appearance at Walker Stalker Con in Atlanta, Georgia, and was finally able to talk about his role (via ComicBook.com). “I was asked to play it. You know, you audition and stuff like that, but the fact is you’ve just got to keep it quiet,” Momoa said. “You know what I mean, I was just trying to respect Warner Bros. and everyone’s wishes.

  • Alien: Isolation review – Hold your breath

    The first time I watched Alien was when I was 13. I wanted to engross myself into Ridley Scott’s space horror masterpiece after experiencing the more action-oriented Aliens from James Cameron. There was a sense of tranquil beauty that Scott’s Alienhad that really can’t be explained in words. Certainly it’s not one in the trilogy that easily translates into a video game. That’s where Creative Assembly comes in with Alien: Isolation. How can a developer whose portfolio consists of mainly strategy games create an authentic survival horror experience? For…

    Nobody is out of your “league” when you know the secrets to attraction.       We all share the same basic biology and neurology…even if our physical appearances differ. Unlocking the secrets to attraction will give you an advantage greater than any physical beauty.   In fact, women obsessed with their physical appearance are often the easiest to attract. Many have never learned the difference between lust and true attraction so they appeal strictly to men’s primitive instincts. Like a Jedi Mind Trick, it temporarily works.  The majority of men who…

    Warner Bros might only have just announced Suicide Squad, but the project already has a director, and could be about to add a trio of A-list stars to its cast list. According to Deadline, Will Smith, Tom Hardy and Margot Robbie are in negotiations with the studio, with deals thought to be close for all three actors. It had previously been reported that Ryan Gosling was also on Warner’s hit list, and with the studio seemingly moving very quickly on this one, don’t be surprised to see him joining the fun sooner rather than later.

    Simon Kinberg has been discussing Fox’s forthcoming Fantastic Four reboot, and specifically how the production team are carefully selecting the first footage to debut to fans… “We’re putting it together now,” says Kinberg to Comicbook.com, “and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure that the first thing we put out really expresses the voice of the movie, and isn’t compromised by not having visual effects ready, or anything like that.” Kinberg himself has been a…

    The casting process for Doctor Strange continues to limp ever onwards, with Colin Farrell the latest name to be linked to Marvel’s favourite sorcerer. According to The Wrap, Farrell is now one of the top names in contention for the role, with Keanu Reeves and Benedict Cumberbatch also thought to be among the frontrunners. The report also claims that Joaquin Phoenix is still in the mix, despite early negotiations having apparently broken down. It is thought he had previously come close to accepting the role, only for the finer points of his deal to prove unsatisfactory… Meanwhile, another…

According to THR, Malone will feature in a “mystery role”, with no details confirmed as yet regarding who exactly she’ll be playing.

    I wasn't fan of its predecessor, but this sequel gets a couple of things right where Batman failed.  It certainly isn't a great film, and I'm rather impressed these films made enough money that they made four of them.  In any case, I think Batman Returns may be the best film in this series.First things first, Tim Burton really toned down the "iconic shots" in this film and majorly increased the plot (i.e. it had a plot this time).  There are 2.5 villains: the Penguin...a monster played by Danny DeVito, Christopher Walken plays himself (actually he plays Max Shreck, a power…

    As a kid I remember watching the live action Batman (1989) and being very entertained.  It is probably because, as a kid, there wasn't much for me to think about or understand in the film. It is a highly stylized (for 1989), almost cartoonish version of Batman, with very weak characters and plot.  Michael Keaton does fine, as a rather bored Bruce Wayne, with some pretty funny one-liners.  His portrayal of The Batman, however, is a bland, kind of lame superhero.  But you know, even a lame Batman is cool.  I think it is that suit.The Batwing flying straight up....for no…

    There is never a shortage of vampire movies, especially these days.  Just in time for Halloween comes another attempt at bringing back the original vampire, Dracula himself.  Unlike many Dracula movies, this one actually succeeds at bringing something new and worthwhile to the table.   The first sign of something new is the setting, sometime in the 1400s, I believe.  Dracula is simply known as Vlad, a human who has been trained especially well at fighting and killing from growing up in the army.  So there is a lot of medieval armor and clothing and fighting; it looks more like Lord…

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…

    So if you haven’t heard yet, Martin Scorsese is making a bipoic about the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band on earth, The Ramones.  Although there is no news  on production or release dates, the possibilities alone excites us. Really, if a movie were made about The Ramones, we’d want it to be directed by the great Martin Scorsese. Then we started thinking, who would Scorsese cast? Our excitement soon turned into horror as we imagined Martin Scorses’s favorite muse, Leonardo DiCaprio, acting in a role as Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee or Tommy…or any part, for that matter.  Not to say that…

    Ip Man 3 will start shooting in March of 2015. Here’s what Yen told Flicks and the City (via EP): “We’re starting next March… it’s going to be my last time around playing Ip Man. I think the fans have been waiting for quite a few years. And I kind of didn’t want to take on this role again, and I was onto experimenting with different characters, different roles, until I’m ready. And now, I feel like I’m ready, so we’ll see. I’ll try do the best I can. And hopefully I can top the first two.” cityonfore.com Media Asia Chairman John Chong has officially confirmed that Donnie…

    Since he first joined "The Voice" this season, Pharrell Williams has been something of wizard.

    While I'm personally rooting for Baylor Wilson to win "Survivor: San Juan del Sur," one of our contest frontrunners, Ryan Lapierre, says he's jumping on the Jeremy Collins bandwagon. "He is a firefighter and he is very smart," explains Lapierre. "I can see him blindsiding a lot of people, like he did with Drew Christy, to get to the very end."

    Here at Gold Derby, our Editors often engage in lively battles and strong disagreements over who's out front to win reality TV and awards shows. That's why it's so strange to see Editor Matt Noble and I actually in agreement for once. When it comes to the current 29th season of "Survivor: San Juan del Sur," we both think that 20-year-old Baylor Wilson, a student at Belmont University, has what it takes to be the ultimate Survivor and win the $1 million prize. If Baylor does claim victory, she will join the ranks of only 12 other female winners. Compare that total to the 16 male winners who've…

  • Leaving Circadia

    aaron
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    Leaving Circadia portrays extended adolescence no differently than what we’ve seen before with a pacing and style that doesn’t take any chances. This romantic comedy strives to bring home the point of pursuing American dreams, but the film fails to see past its own hypocritical plasticity as it is just as predictable and light-hearted as any other date-night American rom-com.
  • The Congress

    Equally clever and weird, The Congress examines the century-old fight for artistic autonomy by exploring the consumption of the celebrity through a contrarian message of hope in the film industry. Using both live-action footage and a plethora of animation styles, The Congress is bound to make an impact while joining the growing list of Hollywood satires.
  • The Giver

    aaron
    7 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    For many middle-schoolers, The Giver was the first opportunity for readers to get a taste of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave and a bad taste for the ills of orthodoxy. The novel portrayed the travails of communist rhetoric about fairness and conformity with just a touch of magical realism. Fueled by the recent young adult film adaptations like Divergent, The Hunger Games, and even Harry Potter, the adaptation of The Giver falls into its own trap of “sameness”.

    The One I Love is not like the other romantic comedies you may have seen. That’s because romance is overshadowed by the creepiness and whimsy of what could have been a simple Twilight Zone episode. In what might be one of the most original films of the year, The One I Love is relentless in its twists and compelling with its challenging plot.

  • The Maze Runner – A Mixture of Lord of the Flies and Lost

    Chris D'souza
    13 Oct 2014 | 2:33 pm
    If you have seen the movie Lord of the Flies and the popular TV show Lost, then the Maze Runner just might be a movie of interest for you. It seems like a fusion of the Lord of the Flies with a discarded plot of the TV show Lost, which is bound to get you in! But, there will be no escape either, until and unless all four entries of the Author James Dashner’s hit series of young-adult novels are taken into production. This first installment of the hit series does not waste any time in grabbing the attention of viewers. It all comes down to the movie’s compelling opening sequence, in which…

    If you are a fan of vampire movies you probably do know the ordinary blood sucking storyline, but Dracula Untold might just have a different surprise for you. The movie leads back to the 15th century in which a Transylvanian prince becomes the biggest bloodsucker the world may have ever seen. Vlad the lead actor played by Luke Evans, starts out as an ordinary family man who loves his homeland, his wife and kid. But, soon did he know that his family would come under threat by the Turkish warlords. Vlad tries his best to protect his family and his homeland. However, he cannot become a hero and…
  • The Giver – the True Pain and Pleasure of the “Real” World

    Chris D'souza
    8 Oct 2014 | 2:22 pm
    If you have watched The Hunger Games and Divergent, but didn’t find them interesting, The Giver is certainly a movie which can deliver the teen dystopia that’s right for you. The movie is based on the 1993 bestselling novel written by Lois Lowry. It grabs the attention of the viewers, but the movie lacks the action-driven spectacle and star sizzle The Hunger Games offered. However, The Giver still gets the point across in its serious and subtle way. The storyline of the movie isn’t something you haven’t seen before it starts with a place in a rigorously-controlled…

    If you are a horror fan, but have somehow missed “The Conjuring” last year, let us bring you up to speed with Annabelle. In The Conjuring, Annabelle was this creepy looking old doll that could bring hell to any household, just by sitting on a shelf. Towards the end of The Conjuring, the doll left a lasting impression, and there is no doubt deserved her own story, in her very own movie. Therefore, the end result here is a basic origin story set in the 1970′s. The doll makes her appearance as a typical vintage toy with a happy new owner, Mia. What happens next might blow your…

    Ever After is a retelling of Cinderella.That's it!  Review over!  See you next time, folks!But seriously, what more is there to say about this?  I mean... it's a perfectly fine movie; it's got some charm, Drew Barrymore is adorable, etc.  But really... there's almost no point in doing a review of this, because there's literally nothing I can add to it.  It speaks for itself.  It's a Cinderella movie; there ya go.I guess I can provide a bit of background.  I've never been a big fan of Cinderella.  I'd even go as far to say that it's one of my least…

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

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 137 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    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

    The Horror... The Horror... continues this week when we review the highly regarded B-movie Killer Klowns from Outer Space, a movie that sets your expectations low by its premise. 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. You see them in all their gratuity at the outset, and as its silliness wears off, the disturbia settles in.Download: 136 Killer Klowns from Outer Space

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)

    Time to have a chat with Captain Howdy this week when Matt and Mark review the horror classic The Exorcist. Continuing on with our pre-Halloween "The Horror..." marathon, we discuss the disturbing Friedkin masterpiece that has few, if any, parallels. The Exorcist is strangely a movie for skeptics by skeptics, taunting one to ask terrifying questions about humanity's existence. While many think the opposite of love is hate, the opposite of love is indifference, and the demon occupier Pazuzu/Captain Howdy epitomizes this anti-human element by brutally perverting an innocent twelve year girl,…

A movie that defines the slasher genre in all of its cliche'd silliness. Mark is able to appreciate the films nuances, while Matt laments his inability to partake in Washington State's new-found freedom to herbally enhance for such cinematic exploitation. Nowadays, it has been out done by the horror auters it inspired (e.g. Eli Roth), it gives the gory gross out the old college try.Download:  133 Pieces

    Ryne Barber
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Silent Night, Deadly Night has had a huge following since its release in 1984; it’s one of the more iconic Christmas horror movies, and part of that comes from the outcry of offended people during its release and the film’s subsequent disappearance from theaters. Parents weren’t happy that kids were seeing a murderous Santa Claus rip through dozens of teens on Christmas night, and their protestations really only helped to propel the film into cult status. It helped that it was a particularly brutal film with quite a few exposed breasts. That a 30th anniversary of the movie…

    Sure, there are tons of goth rock songs centered around vampires and blood; if you want that, feel free to check out the Misfits, HIM, or any number of similar bands. I’m just not a huge fan, so instead of opting for those easier playlists, I set out to find themed songs where either the title or the band fit the vampire tone. That’s actually pretty difficult, but I did my best to incorporate different vampire tropes into this 45 minute playlist. On here you’ll find some obvious stuff like Vampire Weekend’s eerie song “Step” or Samhain’s (another…

    You might ask why I’m covering Howling V: The Rebirth instead of the much better films in the series like The Howling or Howling II; it’s a valid question, one that my wife also had when we started the film. For one, the Howling series doesn’t really require an introduction from previous sequels. But most importantly, I saw its description on Netflix, remembered that I had seen parts of it on TV when I was a kid, and I never finished it. Part of what intrigued me back then was that it took the Old World connotations of werewolves and threw it into the…

But the C-plot involves Scott – in general, a character that’s normally given only a small chunk of the episode anyway…

In the year 3000, anything is possible, even the talking head of cryogenically-frozen Ted Williams, and in season three’s episode “The Honking,” the show re-envisions werewolves as deadly cars that run people over to turn them into the revving undead. Futurama is much more invested in its plot about werewolves and werecars in this episode than just making quick mention of it. “The Honking” finds time to throw in references to both classic werewolf films and killer car films…

    When people find out you’re a film lover, they tend to ask you what your favourite film is. When you explain your taste is more for the gruesome realms of cult and exploitation cinema, their next question is usually what the worst film you’ve ever seen is. Which is a question I can usually answer much more quickly. A few years back, when writing for Eat Sleep Live Film, myself and the site’s other co-founders sat down to watch Alex Chandon’s Inbred at FrightFest. Never have I been so incensed by a movie and I doubt very much I ever will again. Just the other day,…

    Weekend Box Office Actuals / October 17, 2014 - October 19, 2014Sony's Fury led the way this weekend with an estimated $23.5 million first-place debut. The Brad Pitt WWII drama, directed by David Ayer and co-starring Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Bernthal and Michael Pena, was the best opening for Ayer as a director (besting the $13.15 million start of 2012's End of Watch). For Pitt, the film is his 11th highest opening, coming in just behind the $26.8 million start of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008). Fury opened with $8.83 million on Friday (an estimated $1.2 million of that…

The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane’s were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams).

When I’m interested in reviewing a movie I’ve never seen before I need to know what I’m getting into before I commit one or the other to it, which means locating a trailer.

    I’ve always wondered why certain crimes get more notoriety than others. With serial killers it’s understandable, they’re the most evil of evildoers and that fascinates us, but what of people who only kill one person, or a small group, and never kill again? Is it the murder, or the murderer, or both? Take Lizzie Borden’s 1892 ax murder of her father and stepmother. I’m sure she wasn’t the first woman to kill another human being with an ax, so why does she go down in infamy when others don’t? Slow news day? The weather? The townsfolk? If she was alive in the 20th or 21st century…

The only other movie I can recall that had a similar plot was 12:01 (1993), which came out the same year. Here we are in 2014 and there are two new movies I know of now using this concept, the soon to be released sex comedy, Premature (2014), where a kid ends up re-living the embarrassing day he lost his virginity over and over, and the movie I’m about to talk in depth about, the Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt sci-fi…

    Seeing as zombies aren’t my favorite movie monsters I was surprised that the last zombie flick I added to my collection was John Gulager’s Zombie Night (2013), and it’s not because I don’t like Gulager. He did a masterful job with Feast (2005) and a not bad job with Feast II (2008), it’s just the distributor who footed the bill for Zombie Night, The Asylum, I’m not a fan of.

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

    The Stop Button

  • I Confess (1953, Alfred Hitchcock)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    4 Oct 2014 | 7:23 pm
    I Confess is unwieldy. Director Hitchcock is extremely precise in his composition, the same goes for Robert Burks' photography (especially the photography) and Rudi Fehr's editing (which changes in harshness based on the story's tone); sure, Dimitri Tiomkin's music is all over the place and intrusive, but it fits the script. George Tabori and William Archibald's ties together three very different stories–Confess is from a play, which explains some of the problems–but the end result is a disservice to the fine production values and some wonderful acting.
  • After Hours (1985, Martin Scorsese)

    26 Sep 2014 | 9:37 am
    After Hours is meticulous. Director Scorsese, editor Thelma Schoonmaker and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus work with exacting precision throughout, with the first third of the film serving to prepare the viewer for the rest. The film follows boring, regular guy Griffin Dunne as he impetuously pursues an attractive mystery woman (Rosanna Arquette) in Soho in the middle of the night. Scorsese, Dunne and writer Joseph Minion never spend any time establishing Dunne beyond his office drone existence–the viewer comes to sympathize with him due to the strangeness of the events unfolding…

    The Mummy is a strange horror movie. While there’s a definite villain–a monster–in Boris Karloff’s resurrected mummy, he poses a danger specifically to only one cast member–Zita Johann. She’s the reincarnation of his lost love and her exact importance to him isn’t clear until the last act. There’s a somewhat goofy moment where Edward Van Sloan, as Johann’s guardian and the closest thing to Karloff’s nemesis, reveals it all to David Manners (as Johann’s more appropriate suitor). Fortunately Van Sloan experiences the eureka moment just in time but not too early……

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

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

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review

    15 Oct 2014 | 3:28 pm
    Though certain aspects of the turtles' back stories have been changed to accommodate a neater - if more ridiculous - plot, the formula is essentially the same: four turtles and one rat, through a series of mutations, have grown to human-like stature and dwell in the sewers of New York City, learning martial arts and consuming copious amounts of pizza and pop culture before emerging to protect the city from the evil Shredder and his Foot Clan. Each turtle has an easily identifiable personality trait: Leonardo's the straight-laced leader; Donatello's the science geek; Raphael's the moody…
  • Gone Girl Review

    10 Oct 2014 | 12:59 pm
    The crux of the film is the battle-of-the-sexes narrative that unfolds between seemingly perfect married couple Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike). With the recession taking its toll on their marriage – he went through a prolonged period of unemployment, supported by her trust fund – the Dunnes aren't in the best place when their fifth anniversary rolls around and Amy mysteriously goes missing, prompting a nationwide media circus and a thorough police investigation, both of which are keen to point the finger at Nick. The film's first half effectively establishes the couple…

I think possibly it came from going through a breakup at the time and maybe deflecting that and projecting that onto a story without realising it consciously. But yeah, it was never explicitly a zombie movie, I've always been drawn to the realm of the fantastic where there's that hesitation between an explanation of events and it kind of has that strange, surreal, uncomfortable, unknown element and I built a…

He pulls together a group of friends and forms the L.G.S.M (Lesbians & Gays Support the Miners), a group dedicated to raising funds for the striking miners. Despite raising a significant amount of money, the miners union rejects their help so they form a partnership with a remote mining village in Wales. While mining leader Dai (Paddy Considine) cautiously welcomes the…
  • If I Stay Review

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

    20 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Fright Night (1985, 2011) Fright Night takes that Eighties, Goonies-style adventure (kids on an adult-free quest of life and death) and uses that conceit to create something tense and scary, and a bit giddy as well. The feature debut as both writer and director for Tom Holland, the film has some sly fun with the vampire legend. Roddy McDowall got much deserved love at the time for his turn as a washed-up actor from horror’s nostalgic past, and Chris Sarandon put his rich baritone to campy, sinister use. Still, everyone’s favorite character was Evil Ed, the manic, pitiful loser turned…

    The Others (2001) Co-writer/director Alejandro Amenabar casts a spell that recalls The Innocents in his 2001 ghost story The Others. It’s 1945 on a small isle off Britain, and the brittle mistress of the house (Nicole Kidman) wakes screaming. She has reason to be weary. Her husband has still not returned from the war, her servants have up and vanished, and her two children, Anna and Nicholas, have a deathly photosensitivity: sunlight or bright light could kill them. What unspools is a beautifully constructed film using slow reveal techniques to upend traditional ghost story tropes,…

    18 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    The Woman (2011) OK, it’s time to get real. And by that we mean real nasty. There’s something not quite right about Chris Cleese (an unsettlingly cherubic Sean Bridgers), and his family’s uber-wholesomeness is clearly suspect. This becomes evident once Chris hunts down a feral woman (an awesome Pollyanna McIntosh), chains her, and invites the family to help him “civilize” her. The film rethinks family – well, patriarchy, anyway. Notorious horror novelist and co-scriptor Jack Ketchum may say things you don’t want to hear, but he says them well. And director Lucky…

    The Host (2006) Japan may have left its monster movie past behind it, moving on to horrifying, circuitous tales where ghosts and technology intertwine, but in 2006, Korea took its own shot at the Godzilla fable. The sci-fi import The Host, which tells the tale of a giant mutant monster terrorizing Seoul, has all the thumbprints of the old Godzilla movies: military blunder, resultant angry monster, terrorized metropolis. Writer/director Joon-ho Bong updates the idea, and not solely with CGI. The film opens in a military lab hospital in 2000. A clearly insane American doctor, repulsed by the…

      Fury by George Wolf “See that? That’s an entire city on fire.” It is World War II, and grizzled combat vet Sgt. Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt) is teaching scared rookie Norman Ellison (Logan Lerman) about the horrors of battle. Fury is hardly the first movie to use a naive soldier as an extension of the audience, and that metaphor is just one of the familiar devices the film leans on to craft a competent, if not exactly groundbreaking, drama of war. Collier leads a 5-man Sherman Tank crew which also includes “Bible” (Shia LeBeouf), …

The Strain presented itself as a show that was going in the right direction. The Strain massively advertised itself as a show that will finally make the vampires scary again.

    When watching episode three of “Gotham” you really get the sense that this show is really figuring out the overall identity and flavor that this show has to offer. Episode three titled “Ballonman” is the turning point for this show and its first season. Not only is “Gotham” delivering on some really good and interesting material, but it is eliminating a majority of the bad from the first two episodes. Episode three sees limited screen-time from the character of Fish Mooney played by Jada Pinkett Smith. Her character has been the biggest issue throughout the first few episodes of…

They officially announced films like Justice League Part 1 & 2, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Suicide Squad. But many were wondering where Joseph Gordan-Levitt's upcoming Sandman adaption was?

Many thought this meant she was in the film but others wrote it off as her just meeting her old friend & director of Sucker Punch Zack Snyder. Well recently she revealed to US Magazine that she had dyed her hair a bright orange. Then some news website put two-and-two together that the actress maybe playing Carrie Kelley from Mark Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.

  • The Judge

    Dan Meier
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:32 am
    Robert Downey Jr. plays Robert Duvall Jr. in this courtroom-cum-family drama about a hotshot lawyer (Downey Jr.) who ends up defending his estranged father (Duvall), a respected judge accused of murder. The Judge is executive produced by Downey Jr., whose Iron Man performance stops just short of his flying around the courtroom firing lazers from his hands. Irony Man’s constant wise-cracking and cocksure charm feel out of step with the more serious elements of the film, which shifts uneasily in tone throughout. Balancing comedy, crime and drama takes a director of greater skill than the…

But when she is mistreated by the criminals she works for, Bob sets out to right some wrongs in society – equalise them, if you will – and it soon becomes apparent there’s more to him than meets the eye. Much of this film hangs on the superb performance of Washington who lends it a calm air of sophistication in spite of its B movie plot. It’s…

    The latest feature from independent production company Warp Films stars Jack O’Connell as a British soldier deployed to Belfast during the Troubles, who suddenly finds himself abandoned behind enemy lines. Like many films from the Sheffield-based film company, ’71 warps unpredictably from British realism into genre territory, shedding safety and composure like layers of body armour. The burnt-out backstreets of Belfast provide a suitably grim setting for the increasingly confined action, with a gritty sense of place made all the more impressive by the fact that it was actually…

    Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star as horrible couple Nick and Amy Dunne, in this adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel about Amy’s mysterious disappearance. Under a lesser director, this outlandish thriller could have been a disaster, or Before I Go to Sleep. But in the terrifyingly talented hands of David Fincher, Gone Girl goes from suburban satire to psycho-sexual thriller with icy smoothness. Each ridiculous revelation is so well played that you can’t help but admire its audacity, as it all comes together in a big boiling pot of Paul Verhoeven and Brian…

    The late Philip Seymour Hoffman stars in this espionage thriller about the search for Chechen immigrant Issa Karpov (Grigoriy Dobrygin), who is deemed a threat to security upon illegally entering Hamburg. Adapted from a John le Carré novel, A Most Wanted Man takes its time and eschews action in favour of authenticity. The result is an involving spy flick that will keep you stuck to your seat, if not teetering on the end of it. Politically complex and sensitively handled, the film avoids delineation between the good guys and bad guys, offering an atypically critical depiction of the war…

According to a local news station in Michigan (WILX-10), the Hunger Games star will be playing a female Robin in the film. This according to one of the extras at Michigan State University, where a pivotal scene was being filmed involving the two stars of the movie, Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg. And while nothing…

    Two words for the reason I watched this movie: Boris Kodjoe. I love that guy and could seriously look at him for hours. Unfortunately, the second he opens his mouth, he kind of ruins the effect. Boris tends to play the character of a good guy that doesn’t really exist. The endlessly supportive, loving, and freakishly handsome husband that most women would only find in their dream journal. In this movie, we meet Zoe Reynard (Sharon Leal) who has a life that most people could only dream about. She had a flourishing career, two adorable kids and a smoking hot husband (Boris Kodjoe).

    Out of all the Oscar season films, Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken‘ is probably the one you haven’t heard much about. The film, which is directed by Angelina Jolie, follows the extraordinary life of WWII hero and Olympian Louis “Louie” Zamperini. The first Unbroken trailer released focused more on Zamperini’s formative years; however, this new trailer concentrates more on the war and its aftermath. The experts believe this film is an early frontrunner for the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar. The film was adapted from the great nonfiction book written by…

    Chris Rock, as talented of a comedian as he is, has not been able to translate that talent into box office success. I take that back. He has not found success as a leading actor. As a supporting actor, I personally think his best movie was Lethal Weapon 4, or maybe as the mail guy in Boomerang….but let’s not forget Poochie in New Jack City. But when it comes to playing the lead, we have box office blunders like, ‘Head of State’, ‘I think I love My Wife’, and ‘Bad Company’. With his newest effort, entitled “Top Five” we might have turned the corner. A more mature, industry…

    A brilliantly executed series. Fargo is a dark comedy in which an individual’s (Lester) actions are greatly influenced by a wandering assassin that meets him when he is at a low point in his life. One of the things to appreciate in this show is the actors who do an incredible job of fleshing out their characters. In addition, the suspense and eerie landscapes (mostly snow :)) make the show highly entertaining. Definitely worth checking out, even more so if you’re a fan of the movie.

    Just one of the best! The Wire takes place in Baltimore Maryland, each season showing a different aspect of the city’s state of being in crime, government, education, etc. The show is masterfully crafted with every episode slowly delving deeper into various story lines that come together in a powerful finale in every season. It is primarily told from the point of view of Detective McNulty as he attempts to bring down those responsible for the drug distribution. The many characters are vividly presented over the course of the series along with superb dialogue unique to the setting.

Set in the year 2075, the story follows a crew of ‘space janitors’ who collect debris floating in space as the increased amount of garbage now poses a threat to spacecrafts. As the series progresses it tackles many of the interesting social constructs that can occur with the advent of space tourism and living. In addition, the character development is excellent for every main character introduced throughout the series. For an anime made in 2003, the animation is great and I…

    Oldboy is an interesting, story driven, South Korean movie. The main character (Oh Dae-Su) gets kidnapped and imprisoned without knowing the person behind the kidnapping or the reason for imprisonment.

    Luther is the story of a genius detective, similar to Sherlock, but with a much darker tone than what you usually see on the telly. The show follows Luther (Idris Elba) and the various cases he tackles during his career as a copper. It starts off as a procedural, but within a few episodes becomes an enthralling serialized drama. Definitely the most impressive aspect of Luther, is the characters. Idris Elba (primarily known for his role in The Wire) plays his character realistically by displaying his flaws and moral behavior in various situations. It also helps that the stories told…

    I thought terminators don’t age so how is it exactly that Arnold Schwarzenegger can play the terminator that doesn’t age if he looks considerably older than the first time he played that character. Is it because this is Hollywood? Nope, that’s not it, and franchise co-creator James Cameron explains why. “I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society.

In fact, it is the talking racoon – Rocket, who exists as a result of a science experiment, the humanized tree – Groot, that has the ability to speak only three words for the entire of the film (“I am Groot”), the sensitive human -Peter Quill, who we see…
  • Film Review: Boyhood

    Simon Fallaha
    7 Aug 2014 | 1:40 am
    Simon Fallaha looks at Richard Linklater’s magnum opus: a tale of loss, love and livelihoodThere are two ways to look at Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. You could see it as the real-time life story it promotes itself as, a unique, psychological and philosophical exploration of the ups and downs of readjustment when growing up and getting older. Alternatively, you could just shrug your shoulders and dismiss it is as “another coming of age flick” with a gimmick, a showcase for pretentious, self-consciously artsy natter. It’s a familiar trend in Linklater’s…

    4 Jun 2014 | 5:20 am
    Director: Bryan Singer.Cast: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen. The X-Men franchise has been a bit uneven in terms of quality with the X-Men series since original director Bryan Singer left the franchise to direct Superman Returns (and we all know how that turned out). Some have been amazing (First Class) while others have been appalling (The Last Stand and Origins: Wolverine), but now Singer returns to reclaim his throne and deliver the most ambitious X-Men film to date.The film begins in a dystopian…

    Director: Pascal Chameuil Starring: Pierce Brosnan, Imogen Poots, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Sam Neill.‘A Long Way Down’ has a host of extremely talented actors, but not even that can save it. The adaptation of Nick Hornby’s 2005 book tries to stand up to the book – it really does. But it manages to fall on its face before the first half hour is even over.The film tells the story of four people who find themselves on top of Topper’s House on the same night, all intending to do the same thing – to end their lives The four people – Martin (Brosnan), Maureen (Collette), Jess…

    6 Oct 2014 | 12:18 pm
    The tremendously skilled Vishal Bhardwaj packs a terrific punch with Haider. His technical precision is palpable in every frame. I had no reason to complain about the length. He creates and builds upon every character, every scene with hearty indulgence, letting us soak up and savor every bit of it.How he adapts this Shakespearean family drama to tell the story of Kashmir, adds a feather to his perfected storytelling!His poetic rendition and minimalistic tone added to the overall impact. Bhardwaj's direction judiciously and compellingly emphasized reaction over action, which helped connect…
  • Khoobsurat (2014) Review

    Mansi Dutta
    19 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    Khoobsurat is as cliched-as-quirky coming together of lovers (and families) with contrasted upbringings.While Sonam's unapologetically over-the-top act (mostly in the first half) takes some getting used to, she shows steely intensity and is rather endearing in a lot of other scenes.Her excessively boisterous sense of style can pass for a young, 20-something but doesn't wash for her kind of profession. 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…
  • Priyanka Chopra delivers a knockout performance in Mary Kom

    5 Sep 2014 | 9:35 am
    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…

    The industry of horror movies is very profitable, many of those movies made a lot of profits during the past decade despite their little budgets. And because Hollywood prefers to work with famous names, most of the old movies that have been reproduced were well-known and popular; and this exactly what made this strategy almost always achieve a great success.

Once again, audiences are dragged through a hellish environment where water is hard to come by and morals are always trumped by man's greed for land, money, and resources. Played like a lackluster version of Mad Max meets a Sergio Leone film, Young Ones is short on character, high in melodrama, and an altogether…

    Yeah, I know, leading you into a scene (using a innocent kid, no less) and then throwing a jump scare at you with fancy quick cut editing is a bit of a cheat, but hey, it kind of works. Anyhoos. Take a gander at a new trailer for the Brit horror sequel “The Woman in Black: Angel of Death,” take a ganderers. I guess Harry Potter was wielding some weak magic, since he apparently didn’t manage to kill the old broad in the first movie after all.

Which makes this the most boring news all day, because let’s face it, even if the ratings for “Dead” tanks this year (and there’s no indication it’s in any danger of doing that), the network would still give it another year to try to, ahem, come back to life. Season 5 kicks off this October 12th, with Rick and co. fighting back against their captors at Terminus. From the looks of the trailers, they apparently turn the tables on the bad guys…

It’s the kind of hellish looking children’s toy that you think no one would ever possibly give to a real child because just looking at that nasty smile would give it nightmares. Obviously, the first thing you thought walking out of James Wan’s film was, “That creepy doll needs its own movie,” right? Didn’t everyone think that? It sure seems that way, because that’s exactly what we now have with the prequel “Annabelle.” And if you think making a feature-length movie out of the backstory of a sinister doll—from the director…

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…

    I’ve never really understood the law. That, however, never stopped me from drooping inquisitively over courtroom dramas. With my rediscovery of A Few Good Men on TV a few months ago, this sub-genre managed to spark some affection in my geeky wonderland of a mind. With two acting powerhouses to anchor its shaky narrative, The Judge is a pleasant break for both Robert Downey Jr and his fans. And it is a lot better than some cantankerous complain-boxes might have led you to believe. It is a film of uncontaminated smiles paired gently with a sincere instances of quivering…

    It is easy to be a bit cynical about the state of modern commercial filmmaking. So many of today’s wide-released movies are either remakes of a remake of a remake or star a buff white dude fighting crime (usually in a cape or police uniform). With big studios investing so much money in the big movies we see today, they cannot afford to take huge risks. There is a tried and true formula for big commercial profits in Hollywood, and the big movie studios plan on taking full advantage of it. A few times a year you will see studios give opportunities to very established directors to make bold,…

    Dracula Untold tries to be a lot of different things – a PG-13 horror movie, a historical epic, a Gothic romance, a superhero origin story – and it does it all while at the same time trying to kick start an Avengers-style shared movie universe. Whether you call that ambitious or just the obvious product of too many cooks in the kitchen, it doesn’t succeed on every front. But remarkably enough, as a pure popcorn movie, it doesn’t completely fall apart, either. Taking place in 15th-century Transylvania, it introduces us to a Dracula very different from Bela Lugosi’s iconic, heavily…

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:22 am
    by Tony Dayoub Many years ago, I made the mistake of dismissing The Nightmare Before Christmas as a visually spectacular but hollow animated musical. Yeah, I didn't get it. It isn't that nostalgia has made the movie feel closer to a classic or that over time its style has eclipsed its substance. In a fundamental way, I've come to realize, its style is its substance. I shall not make the same mistake with The Book of Life. While not the animation game-changer that The Nightmare Before Christmas may have been, The Book of Life perhaps has even more room to grow into a classic in the coming…

    16 Oct 2014 | 2:05 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Writer-director David Ayer crafts another fine look at the way shared violent experiences form a tenuous brotherhood among men with Fury. Set in the final days of World War II's European Theater, the movie follows a Sherman tank, christened "Fury," and its battle-hardened crew led by Staff Sergeant Don "Wardaddy" Collier (Brad Pitt). Among Wardaddy's crew are the God-fearing "Bible" (Shia LaBeouf), wisecracking "Gordo" (Michael Peña), and the crude "Coon-Ass" (Jon Bernthal). After losing one of their drivers, the tight-knit unit is saddled with a virtual rookie plucked from…

  • Movie Review: I Am Ali (2014)

    15 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    by Tony Dayoub Going in, documentary I Am Ali has two strikes against it. It tries to distill the entire life of boxing's best known heavyweight champion into a film with a scant 111-minute running time, and it depends too much on his closest friends and family to do so. On the plus side, it is the first film to revolve so heavily on personal recordings of interactions with his family made by Muhammad Ali himself. The result is a substantially whitewashed account of the life of the Greatest. At best, I Am Ali is a primer for the few that a long line of documentaries about this extremely well…
  • NYFF52 Reviews: Tales of the Grim Sleeper (2014) and Iris (2014)

    7 Oct 2014 | 7:12 am
    by Tony Dayoub Two of the best documentaries playing at the 52nd New York Film Festival couldn't be more different except that they are each by titans of their field, the creepy Tales of the Grim Sleeper by Nick Broomfield and the ebullient Iris by Albert Maysles. Tales of the Grim Sleeper Broomfield is a character in his own doc, playing the part of the "observer observed," a kind of subjectivity I usually dislike in this kind of reportage. However, it in no way detracts from the chilling story he recounts about Lonnie David Franklin, a man who may have killed over a hundred women in his…

  • HERE COMES THE NIGHT Review

    Todd Willcox
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:24 pm
    Here Comes the Night has the hallmarks of do-it-yourself filmmaking. It was written and produced by directors Pete Shanel and Peter Kline as well as the film’s principal actors, Ben Duhl and Kurt Haas. The result is nearly 90 minutes of what amounts to the beginning of a film; that is, there is a premise that is never fully explored or realized. Duhl and Haas create likeable characters who might have something to say in a bigger universe than the one they inhabit on the streets of Los Angeles.

    Think back on the last movie you watched. Where and how did you watch it? On your laptop? On your phone? On Blu-ray or DVD? In a movie theatre? Regardless of how films are ultimately distributed they are always meant to be seen on the big screen with an audience. Good or bad, ultra-low or sky-high budgeted, recent release or over a century old, movies were meant for movie theaters. When films are out of circulation that is where the repertoire theaters come in. Revival theaters, as they are also referred to as, screen films that are no longer in circulation. Often these theaters will screen a…

  • Dracula Untold

    15 Oct 2014 | 4:10 pm
    Dracula Untold ★1/2    Classic literature is a beautiful thing to behold. This stems from the fact that today's literary realm pales in comparison, as far as pure talent is concerned, and lacks the depth of intellectual prowess that only a name such as Leo Tolstoy can summon. Characters are cherished and live on in the hearts of many, while inevitably becoming the focal point of countless, and rather unnecessary, remakes and tales of a re-fashioned manner. Needless to say, no one has dared to attempt a re-telling of a novel as highly distinguished as War and…
  • Transformers: Age of Extinction

    13 Oct 2014 | 5:46 pm
    Transformers: Age of Extinction  Zero Stars   "Transformers: Age of Extinction" is a long winded nightmare of a film. This commercially successful franchise has drained the joy and substance from the art itself, all while being fed by the mindless general audiences who only care for simplistic and rather vacuous entertainment. It will not be long before we are inevitably converted back to the age of grunting and killing small rodents with over-sized clubs.   Naturally, one would have higher expectations for this picture, considering the casting of Mark Wahlberg and…

    Gone with the Wind       As the seventy-fifth anniversary screening of  "Gone with the Wind" came to a close and whilst the audience divulged in a rousing exhibition of appreciation, a lingering sense of unrelenting elation gripped my heart and soul. Of course, this warmth does not stem from the film itself, as the resolution would warrant a profusion of emotions, most of which identify with sorrow and despair. This contentment emanates from the reality that after all these years, this picture still remains a favored piece of cinema for many, and continues to…
  • No Good Deed

    30 Sep 2014 | 6:05 pm
    No Good Deed     "No Good Deed" is a worthless and aimless film, in which one could attach numerous other synonyms of the like to describe its incompetence. Its misguided attempts to thrill are trumped by an inept exercision of direction, acting, and a plot that would make even a B-horror film cringe.    This is without hesitation the most idiotic picture of the year. Its presence is purely ignominious and rightfully so. For, if blunders of this caliber were commended, then everything we know and love about the art of film would be deemed trivial. Our time on this…

    The Maze Runner    As the box office reign of  "Guardians of the Galaxy"  and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" inevitably comes to an end; it lends the opportunity for another film to shift to the forefront and attempt to stimulate audiences nationwide. "The Maze Runner" is a science fiction tale that fulfills this elementary requirement and functions quite well, considering the youth of the cast and the lack of experience in director Wes Ball. This being his first feature length picture.    With any film whose cinematic concern and theme…

Wanna race?"Apparently, there is a strong lack of creativity when it comes to movies about the future.This week's release, Young Ones, is no different. Once again, audiences are dragged through a hellish environment where water is hard to come by and morals are always trumped by man's greed for land, money, and resources. Played like a lackluster version of Mad Max meets a Sergio Leone film, Young Ones is short on character, high in melodrama, and an altogether…

    12 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    The Aral Sea was once the world’s fourth-largest inland sea. It exists now as an expanding toxic desert that straddles the borders of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Often referred to as ‘the quiet Chernobyl,’ the Aral Sea is understood now as one of the worst man-made environmental disasters in history. The sea first began to shrink in the 1960s, when the Soviet Union decided to divert the two rivers, the Amu Darya and Syr Darya, which brought glacial melt and snowpack from the Hindu Kush and Pamir Mountains of the southeast. The reasoning behind the Soviet decision was to reinvigorate…

    A two decade dance Anyone who waited patiently for the release of Blonde Redhead’s September album Barragán, with a mixture of heady expectancy and churning anxiety, may understand my comparison of the initial experience to a detached, sombre waltz with flaccid art pop. After experiencing the band’s performance huddled together with several hundred at a sold out show in Islington’s Assembly Hall, Kazu Makino, Amadeo and Simone Pace have managed to convince me – and those who shared the experience – that it was a dance worth committing to. Though Blonde Redhead span 21…

    The animation world will always be indebted to Hayao Miyazaki. He’s the Kurosawa of animation films. Miyazaki’s last creation is a tale about love for life and an aircraft designer’s obsession with the airplanes. The film is loosely based on the life of Japanese aeronautical engineer, Jiro Horikoshi, who played a crucial role in shaping Japan’s aeronautical industry. The characters in the film are truly in love with their craft just like Miyazaki himself.I always feel sad while watching even some of the more popular animation films from the west as it gives me an impression that…

This time you see a couple of cops with another hand-cuffed character, the one who was in initial shot but you’re unable to recognize him given the dark. There’s a prosecutor, who is in charge of the investigation, a cop, a doctor, gendarmerie forces, grave diggers, a driver and…
  • The Kid with a Bike (Le gamin au vélo) (2011)

    19 Jan 2013 | 11:22 am
    I don’t think Dardenne brothers have ever committed the sin of trying to impress the audience, to mystify them, or for that matter to wow them. They make films with simple narratives but focus more into deciphering the characters in their movies and the emotions they’re going through. The Kid with a Bike (Le gamin au vélo) is another such attempt by the duo that has made movies in the past on adolescent themes, such as Le fils and L’enfant. The Kid with a Bike portrays the anguish of a 12 years old, Cyril, who is unable to come to term with the fact that his father has abandoned him.
