    “I always like to think of the audience when I am directing, because I am the audience.”--Steven Spielberg Perhaps this quote, which adorns the collectible booklet in the recently-released “Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection” gets at the core of why Steven Spielberg is one of our most critically divisive artists. For every film lover who bows at the altar of Indiana Jones and E.T., there’s one who will tell you that Spielberg is overly sentimental and crowd-pleasing to a fault. Some critics would argue that a director shouldn’t make a movie for the audience but for their art…

    Daniel Radcliffe made his name battling evil in the “Harry Potter” movies. In “Horns,” Radcliffe’s latest effort to distance himself from the iconic boy wizard, he turns into the Devil himself–albeit an angsty, hipster version. Radcliffe has an immensely appealing presence no matter what he’s doing, and he’s made inspired, daring choices to demonstrate his versatility outside of “Harry Potter,” from going nude on Broadway in “Equus” to starring as a young Allen Ginsberg in “Kill Your Darlings” to playing an oversexed version of himself on HBO’s “Extras.”…
  • Nightcrawler

    Matt Zoller Seitz
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:53 am
    Dan Gilroy's thriller "Nightcrawler" is about about an amateur cameraman who parlays his eye and his nerve into a successful small business, deceiving, manipulating and exploiting everyone who stands in his way. Shot by Paul Thomas Anderson's regular cinematographer Robert Elswit through what could be a Night Vision Rot filter, it's a film about how sociopaths get over on everyone else, and a portrait of a disturbed, marginal loner that would fit perfectly on a double bill with "Taxi Driver" and "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer." It's also a media satire in the spirit of "Network" and "To…

    Christine Lucas (Nicole Kidman) wakes up every day thinking that she’s 15 years younger than her actual age. She doesn’t recognize the man lying next to her. The 40-year-old in the mirror doesn’t look right. She’s not even sure where she is. Not unlike Guy Pearce’s memorable lead in “Memento,” Christine has psychogenic amnesia. She was in a car accident over a decade ago. Since that day, she has rebooted after every night’s sleep. She doesn’t remember anything that happened the day before, and only gets occasional flashes of memory of the past 14 years. Her husband Ben…

    In a note at the beginning of this picture, the premise, which is pretty much identical to the first “ABCs of Death” premise, is laid out: 26 filmmakers were assigned a word beginning with a particular letter and told, more or less, to go and make a horror short based on that word. “They were given complete artistic freedom,” the note continues. I detect a certain pride in this particular assertion. This movie is the work of hardcore genre fans turned moviemakers—one of the producers, Mark Walkow, is in fact an old friend of mine from back in the days of laser discs, and well I…

As she strolls, she appears to relish the attention, but as she describes a personal evolution, it seems more likely that she holds her head up high because she knows a secret to life.

It has the potential to look silly. They only took like 20 minutes to put on. They were really fast and really light.

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.

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

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

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

  • Channing Tatum Attached to 'Gambit' Spin-Off from 'RoboCop' Writer

    Earlier this year, X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner was talking about landing Channing Tatum to play the Cajun, kinetically charged mutant Gambit in his own spin-off film. Then the actor was confirmed to take the role in May, and we've just been waiting to see how it all plays out. Well, Deadline has more details with official word that Tatum is officially attached to the film at 20th Century Fox and the script will be written by RoboCop remake scribe Josh Zetumer, based on a treatment from Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont, the man who created the cool character with Jim Lee…

    If you haven't yet given the horror flick The Cabin in the Woods a chance yet, it's available right now on Netflix Instant, and it's one of the best genre films of the past decade without a doubt. It uses familiar horror tropes while also giving them a reason to exist, and we don't want to explain any more than that if you're outside of the bubble of this film for some reason. Just take our word and watch it with some friends. Anyway, since the movie has been out for a coupe years, someone decided to dissect it a little further and focus on all the horror references made in the film,…

    Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "You have to make the money to buy a ticket." In theaters now is Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler, a story set during nighttime in Los Angeles about a young man desperate for work who lands a career in late-night crime journalism. Jake Gyllenhaal plays Louis Bloom, who zooms around the city with his video camera hoping to capture footage of the biggest story he can find. The cast includes Bill Paxton as a competitor, Rene Russo as a TV station editor, and Riz Ahmed as his assistant "Rick". So how is it? The sleeper hit of the year? Or just plain…

    It's Halloween, so it's the perfect time for some Ghostbusters fun, especially since this year is the 30th anniversary of the 1984 classic. This time we've got a sweded version of the original trailer for the film that was made by some middle school students from Raw Art Works, a nonprofit organization set up in Lynn, Massachusetts with an aim to encourage young people to tell stories through filmmaking. It's a fun little video that would make Michel Gondry proud as they use the real audio from the original Ghostbusters trailer and shot footage using whatever props they found, from NERF guns…

  • ‘Jingle All the Way 2′ Dresses Up as a Real Movie for Halloween

    Russ Fischer
    31 Oct 2014 | 4:15 pm
    I know, it’s too early to start throwing Christmas movies at you. But this only looks like a Christmas movie. In fact, I believe this trailer for Jingle All the Way 2, starring Larry the Cable Guy, is actually a bunch of footage dressed up as a real movie for Halloween. Sadly, Larry does not play the character originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1996 movie. That might be a pretty good trick. He’s just another dad trying to get a great gift for his kid. Hint: this Jingle All the Way 2 trailer is not the gift. Trailer via Fox, which will probably make more money on this…
  • POTD: See Seth Rogen as a Version of John Milius in ‘Zeroville’

    Russ Fischer
    31 Oct 2014 | 4:00 pm
    The picture above isn’t a Halloween party shot; it’s a behind the scenes pic from James’ Franco‘s film adaptation of the novel Zeroville. And Seth Rogen isn’t really playing screenwriter and director John Milius. In fact, he’s playing a character called Viking Man… who is a very thinly-disguised representation of Milius. Zeroville features quite a few such figures. Some of the book’s characters are famous (Martin Scorsese is represented, for instance) while others are fairly obscure. See the full Zeroville shot, complete with an appearance from…

    Like the torn-apart Frank Cotton in the original film, Hellraiser keeps trying to pull itself back together. Harvey Weinstein has experimented with reboot and sequel ideas for the past few years, attaching a couple different directors at different times for projects that ultimately failed. But a year ago Clive Barker revealed that he had pitched Weinstein on a loose remake idea that the producer liked. Suddenly, Barker was reunited with his directorial debut and working on the newest version of the tale. Now Barker has finished the second draft of the film that will reboot and expand upon the…

  • Ex Machina Trailer Is The Coolest Thing In Years, Nevermind The Film

    Marc Eastman
    30 Oct 2014 | 2:48 pm
    Sci-fi stories that play with “jargon” are always suspect, because they immediately have a certain air about them that suggests they went to school, you didn’t, and they are very interested in the fact. So, when Ex Machina oversells its premise by making sure it says “Turing Test” a lot, you have to raise an eyebrow. But, few movies have quashed concerns with a trailer better than this one. A three-person show, with apparently virtually no supporting characters, the film centers on Oscar Isaac as a super-wealthy recluse who has built an A.I. (Alicia Vikander),…

Writer-Director J.C. Chandor‘s name may not be one that you immediately recognize, but he directed last year’s All is Lost with Robert Redford, and now he is Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in a film that focuses on the rampant crime and corruption in New York City in the early ’80s. It looks to be a film that people will be talking about for a very long time, and you…

Obviously inspired by the film, and the massive cult following that has continued to grow over the years, the show follows a time traveler who comes back to prevent the plague that has decimated the human race and left the planet in chaos. The trailer lets you in on the fact that things are probably a lot more complicated than they seem, and it may be that no one actually knows what’s going on.

    Constantine TV Review (NBC) The world of sci-fi television is growing by leaps and bounds, and the comic-related realm is especially skyrocketing as of late, but even in the new era of television, Constantine is a massive gamble. A weird hybrid of film noir-esque motifs and traditions, and the wildest fantasy filled with demons, angels and everything in between, it’s a story tailor made for self-professed comic geeks. Superheroes are one thing, but Constantine, popular as it is within its own circle, is a niche in a niche, and it’s in a small box in the corner of that room…

There isn’t much to know at this point, beyond the fact that there’s some potential to the concept, but at least we know who we’ll be watching. Sci-Fi fans might want a little more info on exactly what “mutant” means, because it might turn out all too similar to “zombie,” but if you’re looking for a slick, popcorn adventure, having people emerge from their bunkers ten years post apocalypse gives you a lot of options.

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

But when orchestrated by a master of the genre, at the top of his game, where other filmmakers would have made this picture into a sloppy ham-fisted mess, David Fincher makes two and half hours a completely engrossing experience, terrifying and witty in equal measure and self-aware enough not to take itself too seriously.Gone Girl (2014) dir.

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

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

    Famous jazz trumpeter Clark Terry spends his life bedridden, suffering from the debilitating effects of diabetes. Consider it this year’s “Rocky” of documentaries: a heartfelt, uplifting tale that celebrates the joy of life and the triumphs of succeeding against all odds. The film stands as a loving tribute to the affable 93-year-old Terry, who performed in the bands of both Count Basie and Duke Ellington and seems to have influenced just about every jazz giant on the planet. At the movie’s core is the relationship between Terry, who is losing his sight, and his latest student, Justin…
  • 'Horns’ review: Potter fading as Radcliffe shines in horror film

    By Mick LaSalle
    30 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    “Horns” is a supernatural murder mystery, featuring a scruffy and desperate Daniel Radcliffe running around a small town with horns on his head. Evoking this response in people saves time when conducting a murder investigation, and it’s also great for the screenwriter: The horns make every scene an adventure — not just for the hero, but also for the audience. The horns bring out unexpected moments between Ig (Radcliffe) and his parents, and with a barmaid who spends the night (the always good and very underused Kelli Garner). Rather, it’s a complicated mess: a storytelling mess, a…

    Director Jake Paltrow has assembled a talented cast, but his script strands them in the desert. The story concerns a family led by Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon), who lives on the dry frontier with his sensitive son, Jerome (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and his dumb-as-dirt daughter, Mary (Elle Fanning, in an awful role). Ernest wants to revive the soil, but trouble looms when Mary’s boyfriend, Flem (Nicholas Hoult, in another underwritten role), makes a land grab.
  • 'Laggies’ review: Keira Knightley carries it

    By Mick LaSalle
    30 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    If this movie and last summer’s “Begin Again” are any indication, she might really be a comic actress. The term “laggies” refers to people lagging behind in early adulthood — people whose real lives haven’t really started yet. In the case of Megan (Knightley), who has an advanced degree but no career, and who has an affectionate yet oddly stale relationship with her live-in boyfriend, life hasn’t started because she doesn’t want it to start. [...] it’s a scene you’ve seen a thousand times: A woman reacts to a proposal she doesn’t want. [...] Knightley lands her…
  • 'Nightcrawler’ review: a good creepy Gyllenhaal

    By Mick LaSalle
    30 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    [...] when satire meets reality, there’s no need to exaggerate, and so we get this story of a creepy guy who spends his nights filming scenes of human calamity and selling them to TV news. The movie star alchemy — that special combination of exactly the right weight and exactly the right haircut to produce exactly the right effect — has been thrown out of balance. Driving on the freeway one night, he stumbles onto an accident scene and watches as a freelance camera crew records the drama — cops pulling a woman from a burning car. No, there are actual people out there looking for this…

    Julia Callaway

    Imagine you are in class and your friend has just made a fool of the teacher. How do you feel? Although this will depend on the personalities of those involved, you might well find yourself laughing along with your classmates at the teacher’s expense. The experience of sharing an emotion with your friends (in this case the fun of getting one over on the teacher) will probably strengthen your friendship further. But in a class of one hundred students, there are likely to be one or two who have trouble understanding the joke. The ability to infer and understand other peoples’ emotions and…
  • Stem cell therapy for diabetes

    31 Oct 2014 | 12:30 am
    This month, it was reported that scientists at Harvard University have successfully made insulin-secreting beta cells from human pluripotent stem cells. This is an important milestone towards a “stem cell therapy” for diabetes, which will have huge effects on human medicine. Diabetes is a group of diseases in which the blood glucose is too high. In type 1 diabetes, the patients have an autoimmune disease that causes destruction of their insulin-producing cells (the beta cells of the pancreas). Insulin is the hormone that enables glucose to enter the cells of the tissues and in its…

They warned that the front line of violence between Israelis and Palestinians would move closer to those Israelis who lived inside the Green Line. They claimed their presence provided a buffer. They said God promised this Land to the Jewish people and that they should not abandon it. They said Jewish settlement in the Gaza Strip, unlike many other places inside Israel, did not involve…

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

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…

Born to an impoverished couple in a small town in Austria, the young Adolf grew up with the fervent desire to become a painter.

In a snap it became an instant hit and many now consider it as one of the recent horror classics to come out in the past 20 years. The films do fall on the more grotesque side of the horror genre, but they hold a special place in the hearts of those who gave the series a chance, many like myself who found a strange charm in it all.

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

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,…

    13 Oct 2014 | 6:15 pm
    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…

It’s also only natural that Fallon had something more than just a standard interview in store for the Harry Potter star, which you’ll see in the clip below.

    30 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Review by Bob IgnizioWhen we first meet Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal), the protagonist of NIGHTCRAWLER, he elicits our sympathy. He's a young, smart, resourceful guy who, despite a being down on his luck, genuinely wants to work. To make ends meet at the moment, he's collecting scrap metal, and not always by legal means. So even when he punches out a security guard who catches him stealing some chain link fence, we're still kind of on his side. Eventually Louis discovers the twilight world of freelance late-night crime photography. After asking veteran cameraman Joe Loder (Bill Paxton) for a…

A dark showbiz satire, the film echoes Altman's The Player, and its central event, a play based on Raymond Carver short stories, evokes Altman'sShort Cuts. Although González Iñárratu doesn't have Altman's flair for ensemble drama, it's an ambitious film with rhythmic style and technical…

Dohler was a Maryland based filmmaker who, despite limited resources, always made an effort to produce genre films that were as good as he was capable of making.

    Chris Agar
    31 Oct 2014 | 5:34 pm
    Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi epic, Interstellar, is set to make its theatrical debut a week from now and is already generating mostly positive responses from those who have seen it. However, the director rose to the limelight nearly ten years ago when he rebooted the Batman film franchise with Batman Begins. Spawning $2 billion-grossing followups in 2008 and 2012, the Dark Knight trilogy became not just a watershed moment for the comic book genre, but also movie fans in general. Nolan stayed in the world of DC Comics to help produce Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel (which was…

    Up to now Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has been the sole X-Men to get a solo film to call his own – two, in fact, with a third one scheduled for 2017. That will change in 2016 when the long-await Deadpool finally arrives, and it looks as though the “Merc With A Mouth” will thereafter be followed by the “Ragin’ Cajun”, Gambit. Channing Tatum is lined up to play the latter character in a solo movie, which is now one step closer to becoming a reality. The project has reportedly gained a screenwriter in the shape of Joshua Zetumer, who finally put his name…
  • The 8 Scariest Moments in Modern Horror Movies

    Anthony Taormina
    31 Oct 2014 | 11:15 am
    Although it’s become fairly easy to find a horror movie any time of the year, there’s nothing quite like sitting down for a solid spookfest on Halloween. And while not all horror movies are successful in scaring their respective audiences, a few get the job done with aplomb. These are typically the horror films that stand the test of time, and unfortunately nowadays are the ones that get spun-off into numerous sequels (or remakes). With that in mind, we have pulled together some of our favorite horror movie moments – with a focus on modern films – to remember those rare…

The first wave of marketing for next summer’s tentpoles is already upon us, with trailers for Disney’s Tomorrowland and The Avengers: Age of Ultron having hit the web in recent weeks.

    To say that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has struggled to become a film would be putting it mildly. First announced roughly five years ago, the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s zombie-laden revision of the Jane Austen classic has seen directors come and go, before finally snagging director Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) last year. After that there was a steady stream of casting news; first Lily James (Downton Abbey) and Sam Riley (Maleficent) were cast as leads Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, then Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Mr. Collins, followed by Game of Thrones‘ Lena…

    Daniel Radcliffe moves past his wizardly ways in HORNS. A break from the standard Halloween fare of mad slashers and paranormal infestations, the new film HORNS brings a decidedly hometown slant to an examination of the good and evil that lives in all of us. Daniel Radcliffe plays Ig, a man (yes, man — we’re a long way from Hogwart’s) whose status within his small town after he’s accused of murdering his girlfriend isn’t at all helped once he starts growing a very Satanic pair of horns on his head. That these new appendages also compel people to confess their darkest desires and…

    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.

We have to be clear about this: There are bad movies; there are reprehensible movies; there are movies that make you consider taking out a contract on the entire DGA, just to be sure that never in the future of humankind will there be a chance that such an affront to common decency could again be committed. And then there are films that are a strangely exhilarating kind of awful, the kind that actually restore your faith…

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.

    On October 27th night, Nathaniel Dorsky presented four new short films in the lovely red velvet case of the Metro theater of Austrian Film Archive, in meditative silence and gorgeous projection conditions. Dorsky's films are experiences in the discovery of a world beyond (parallel to) ours that only his camera can capture; a world fleeting and luminous, where mystery prevails through unexpected associations in framing, light and color changes between the "ordinary" objects and spaces that surround us. A world painted in light and movement in which one can catch glimpses of fragile eternity.

    OK, so they’re not movie posters, but I’m making an exception for these marvels. The Criterion Collection has fostered many rewarding pairings of illustrators and filmmakers over the years—I’m thinking especially of Adrian Tomine’s Ozus and Daniel Clowes’ Sam Fullers—but the union of David Merveille and Jacques Tati was a match made in heaven long before Criterion commissioned this series of covers for their new box set. Merveille is a Belgian children’s book illustrator who has been drawing Tati, or rather Monsieur Hulot, for years. In 2006 he…

    31 Oct 2014 | 9:32 am
    They shoot horses don’t they? That statement is not really so much a question, as it is a declaration of fate. The idea being, if a horse breaks its leg, it can’t be healed and is thus better to put the animal out its misery. A mercy killing if you will. If something can’t be healed, it is better to destroy it. It happens then, early into the Young Ones, when a mule carrying equipment across a rocky and desert-like terrain breaks its leg and has to be put down. This starts what is ostensively an overarching theme that at times vaguely encompasses a multi-tone shifting, and confused…

    I am not the person to write this review. I admit to you now, dear reader, I knew very little about writer/comedian Dan Harmon before watching the documentary on him, Harmontown (2014). Everything I know comes from the periphery. I’ve never seen Community, the much troubled (but loved) television show he created, and I’ve never listened to an episode of his podcast, for which the documentary is named after. I do know of his publicized spat with Chevy Chase, and his firing (and re-hiring) from NBC. But other than that, I came in with a fresh pair of eyes. Coming out, I realized the film…

    Los Angeles: a city of dreams and nightmares. Neon lights cut through deep dark shadows as a menacing score keeps us on edge. This is a city where anything can happen, and where people will do anything to get what they want. Dan Gilroy, whose previous credit was writing the screenplay for The Bourne Legacy (2012), makes his directorial debut in Nightcrawler (2014). This is a taut, neo-noir black comedy in every shape and form. Gilroy creates his film with the confidence of a seasoned veteran, establishing an off the wall tone and maintaining it all the way through. Just as we think things…
  • For the Ladies – Maniac Cop

    Adelaide Blair
    30 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    I love a good exploitation movie, especially one that combines horror, action, and great stunts. What I don’t like so much is how these movies usually portray women. Now, I have a sense of perspective, and I don’t really need everything to match up with my Platonic feminist ideal; just because part of a movie contains troubling material doesn’t mean there isn’t anything of value in it. But sometimes it’s just too much. I am not against boobs or violence, but occasionally the violence against boobs is relentless. One of the movies I’ve discovered in the past year, Maniac Cop…
  • Film Review – John Wick

    Sarah Ksiazek
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:15 am
    Keanu Reeves, guns, hitmen, and Russian bad guys: those are four things that you will see a lot of in John Wick. It is an independently-produced film that takes some risks behind the scenes, but comes out being a solid action film that is bound to be a must see for anyone who enjoys the genre. The film centers around John Wick (Keanu Reeves), a hitman who retired from the field when he met his wife (Bridget Moynahan). When his wife dies of an illness, he begins to go on with his life, picking up the pieces. It does not take long for trouble to find him. Iosef (Alfie Allen, Game of Thrones)…

  • Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932), Universal Horror With Bela Lugosi

    25 Oct 2014 | 12:44 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraWhile Universal’s adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe’s Murders in the Rue Morgue wasn’t as successful as either of their 1931 horror entries, Dracula or Frankenstein, then or now, it was a popular 1932 release that seems to be gaining in appreciation today. The Poe story was both adapted for the screen and directed by Robert Florey, with legendary cinematographer Karl Freund on hand to provide his visual touches. Before the year was out Freund put his stamp on another Universal horror classic, The Mummy, this time as…
  • 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 EphemeraThe 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…

    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…

    From his site: If you have yet to try and carve a pumpkin in a 3-D manner, you need to. Its fun and everybody enjoys a cool pumpkin. Unfortunately they begin to rot less than a week after carving so be sure to take plenty of pictures. You can experiment with ways of preserving them but I find nothing works better than a nice photo. Some chefs that I have carved for put lemon juice on the faces to help slow down the natural molding process that will occur. Picking out the right pumpkin is very important. You need a pumpkin with a thick wall. To get this kind you will have to choose one that is…

    31 Oct 2014 | 3:31 pm
    According to Bloody Disgusting, French directing duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo have been tapped for the upcoming The Texas Chain Saw Massacre prequel Leatherface. This is good news for Fangoria types, as Maury and Bustillo’s participation all but guarantees that Leatherface will be both gritty and extremely bloody—their breakthrough film, Inside, is one of those movies that video store clerks put on when they want everyone to leave at closing time (not that I’ve done that or anything).

    The new Channing Tatum era of Gambit is officially set to begin with his own X-Men movie, Deadline reports, as a writer is attached and the fedora is slowly lowered on the muddy banks of Taylor Kitsch. RoboCop remake screenwriter Josh Zetumer will take on another tale of man placed within a machine—in this case Tatum, who’ll be consumed by the Fox franchise as he stars in the first spinoff to be centered on his version of Remy LeBeau. Zetumer will be working from an original treatment by Marvel’s Chris Claremont, who first co-created the sly Southern hero with the mutant power to…
  • Newswire: The Southern Reach trilogy being adapted into movie by 28 Days Later writer

    Paramount is lining up a new thriller, and they want the writer behind the movie that made you realize zombies are way scarier than you had previously imagined. (Cue angry debate over whether fast-moving people infected by a “rage virus” should be considered zombies.) Variety reports that 28 Days Later scribe Alex Garland has been tapped to adapt the screenplay for Annihilation, as well as direct it. The first book in Jeff VanderMeer’s The Southern Reach trilogy, Annihilation tells the story of a biologist investigating her husband’s disappearance inside an environmental disaster area…
  • Newswire: Magic City is being remade as a movie with Bruce Willis and Bill Murray

    31 Oct 2014 | 1:34 pm
    In an interesting reversal of the current trend of taking movies no one really cares about and making them into TV shows, a TV show that nobody really cared about is being made into a movie. Magic City went out with a shrug last summer, and in the meantime series creator Mitch Glazer has apparently been busy adapting the show into a feature-length script, which will now become a movie thanks to the magic of Brett Ratner’s RatPac and a bunch of other, possibly (but not necessarily) slightly less horrible producers. In hopes of making people care about Magic City the second time around,…
  • Newswire: Sam Raimi is reteaming with the guy who remade Evil Dead

    31 Oct 2014 | 12:39 pm
    Many were skeptical when news broke that Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead was getting a remake. The rumored-but-never-realized Diablo Cody script, the choice of unknown Uruguayan Fede Alvarez to direct—none of it inspired confidence in fans of Raimi’s seminal horror-comedy. But the remake turned out to actually be kind of good (or, at least, not packed with CGI effects and rapid-fire teen-speak as was feared) and we were humbled for a brief moment before going back to complaining about whatever it was we were complaining about in April 2013. Raimi himself was apparently also pleased with the…

  • Rumour: Wonder Woman movie to be first in a trilogy?

    With Wonder Woman finally getting her own solo movie, the rumour mill has already clanked into gear regarding exactly what form the spin-off will take, with Bleeding Cool suggesting that the film will be a prequel. According to the report, the film will be set long before Batman v Superman (where Gal Gadot’s character is set to make her on-screen debut), with the first half of the story taking place on Paradise Island, where various Amazonian factions are at war. Things are then shaken up by the arrival of a man on the island, with Wonder Woman eventually returning home with him to the…

  • Raised by Penguins? Bat nipples? George Clooney?

    20 Sep 2014 | 12:05 pm
    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…
  • Na na na na na na na na Batman! (1989 edition)

    6 Jun 2014 | 10:15 pm
    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…

The first thing that was an improvement over last year, was that the media night this year was not a preview, with some attractions not up and running, but a full-blown public night of the Hayride.  Every attraction was functioning and there was a sizable crowd.  So many people were there, in fact, that parking was a bit of a hassle.  Driving around the close lots with no luck, then looping out…

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

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

THE WHAT: Vincent (Murray) is a broke, drunken, gambling war veteran retiree who finds himself recruited by his new in-over-her-head, single-mom neighbor, Maggie (McCarthy), to watch over her small yet mature 12-year-old son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). THE BIG DEAL: I’ll be honest, I don’t follow Bill Murray, the meme, the way most people do. At some point, he became a hipster hero for both his choice in film roles and his offscreen antics–like wedding crashing. For…

While “Girl in a Band: A Memoir” promises to look at all aspects of Gordon’s life – from childhood to her latest music project, Body/Head – the book will also explore the idea of partnership: what it means, and more so, “what happens when it dissolves,” says the press release. Presumably, alluding to the end of Gordon’s 27- year marriage with former Sonic Youth bandmate, Thurston…

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…

    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”.

    If you have seen Paranormal Activity but didn’t find it interesting or scary, perhaps As Above, So Below may entertain you. It is a found-footage horror film written and directed by John Erick Dowdle with his brother. The movie has a rather unique plot and doesn’t fail to disappoint horror freaks. It starts with Scarlett Marlowe, the lead actress in the film, as a young academy scholar who is continuing her deceased father’s work. Scarlett wants to fulfill her dad’s wish and wants to discover the philosopher’s stone. This stone is known to be a legendary…

    The astonishing true story of Winter was portrayed in Dolphin Tale and now America’s favorite dolphin is returning to the screens once again in the sequel Dolphin Tale 2. Directed by Charles Martin Smith, the story takes you three years after the original film. Sawyer (Nathan Gamble has grown into a teenager and still as fond of Winter. He is responsible for the volunteers working at the marina. Hazel (Cozi Zuehlsdorff) is Clay’s daughter and works with Sawyer.

  • A Walk Among the Tombstones – a New Crime Flick

    Chris D'souza
    17 Oct 2014 | 12:09 pm
    An adaption of the best-selling mystery written by Lawrence Block, A Walk among the Tombstones, is the story of an ex-cop Matt Scudder (Liam Neeson), who is hired by the drug lord Kenny Kristo (Dan Stevens) to look into the strange kidnapping and murder of his wife. Undoubtedly, Liam Neeson is always a delight to watch and same is the case in A Walk among the Tombstone. However, sadly the script did not live up to his appeal. But nonetheless, it’s a movie that will prove a treat for all who love Neeson in his action avatar. So, the movie starts with depicting a terrible day for Scudder…

    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…

    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

    26 Oct 2014 | 10:16 pm
    Matt and Mark's Halloween movie marathon "The horror... the horror... " concludes this week with the the titular 1978 classic by John Carpenter. A definitive slasher film if there ever was one, John Carpenter uses minimalism to his advantage with "now you see him/now you don't" camera shots that highlight paranoia and dread. The masked Michael Meyers is what Dr. Loomis dubbed the embodiment of evil, however a more fearful notion still is that Michael Meyers has decoupled from a human soul so completely, "good and evil" no longer hold meaning.

  • 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
  • 136 Killer Klowns from Outer Space

    13 Oct 2014 | 10:08 pm
    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

    5 Oct 2014 | 9:00 pm
    The Horror... The Horror... continues this week with your marathon run-up to Halloween. We review the original Japanese Ringu (Ring) from which inspired the highly successful American remake. 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)
  • 134 The Exorcist

    28 Sep 2014 | 10:38 pm
    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,…

  • The Squad (Scream Factory Blu-Ray) | Movie Review

    Ryne Barber
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:21 pm
    The Squad is a lesson in the chain of command; each of the characters questions whether they should break the chain, and in so doing risk a dishonorable discharge from the ranks, or if they should follow the orders of a superior. Director Jaime Osorio Marquez has strong things to say about the army and war in general, especially the one raging in Colombia between the military and guerilla forces, and though The Squad (or El páramo in its native language) masks itself as a horror film about a potential witch in an abandoned military barracks, it is just as much a study of military…
  • 4WoS: Ghosts | The Pact | Movie Review

    Ryne Barber
    31 Oct 2014 | 8:21 am
    There’s no mention of a pact in Nicholas McCarthy’s The Pact, which pretty succinctly sums up many of the problems with this supernatural thriller. When a movie forces the viewer to speculate on the meaning of the title, it’s lacking in the story department, either because it simply wants it to remain a mystery, or because its attempts at horror supersede the plot. In this case, McCarthy’s tale of ghosts and serial killers in a haunted house certainly features lots of paranormal activity, but it comes at the expense of realistic plotting. Nichole (Agnes Brucker) and…

    Alzheimer’s disease is, quite frankly, terrifying. In the early stages, manifesting as forgetfulness, it can be just an annoyance for both the sufferer and their family; one begins to forget small, short-term things, and then it progresses to losing grasp on names and faces. The brain’s inability to hold onto these memories becomes a stress on the individual, of course, but it’s also terrible for the loved ones who care for them. Eventually, the patient forgets nearly everything, but the loved one remains, trying to hold onto their own memories of a time when things…

Deal with it. Back in June, my parents got my wife and me tickets to see Evil Dead: The Musical at Proctors Theater; the only problem was that I had to wait four months to actually see the thing. The tickets were great, but I didn’t really know what to expect from a show that wanted to take such a cult classic as Evil Dead and turn it into a comedy with show-stopping musical numbers.

    Sometimes, Four Weeks of Shrieks breaks away from the Halloween theme more than I’d like it to. It’s hard to find something that fits into each category and also captures the spirit of the holiday at the same time; thankfully, Jim Davis’ annual Halloween hit from 1985, Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, features quite a bit of trick-or-treating and a few ghosts as well. Part of the reason why I’m covering this special has to do with the AV Club’s recent interview with Davis about the special, revealing quite a bit about the reasons for each arc of the…

    (Warning! There are spoilers in these woods! Be careful in your tread! You have been warned) Maleficent is movie number five in the big budget, live action, Hollywood fairy tale reinvention series that’s currently en vogue. Other entries were Red Riding Hood (2011), Snow White And The Huntsman (2012), Hansel And Gretal: Witch Hunters (2013) and Jack And The Giant Slayer (2013). Maleficent is similar to Jack And The Giant Slayer in that its concept is to show the “real story” behind the fairy tale, with this movie it’s Cinderella, but told from the perspective of the perceived “evil…

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…

    After Groundhog Day (1993) came out I was a little surprised that there weren’t more films made exploiting that particular time travel anomaly Bill Murray suffered from in that film. 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…

That as far as I know isnt illegal. Just the same military police were quick to pull these bodies from the trees. The man for the record offered no resistance and complied with their requests for removal.

  • Warner Archive Wednesday ~ Government Girl (1943)

    Raquel Stecher
    29 Oct 2014 | 8:00 am
    Washington, D.C. during WWII was a hectic place. The new jobs created to support the war effort drove many to the nation’s capital. The influx of people caused a housing shortage that had workers and hotels scrambling. And with so many men away on duty, D.C. became a 10-women-to-every-man kind of a town leaving single gals with few options. The “government girls”, who took on a variety of important roles, were crucial to war effort’s success.Add captionWhat better way to examine chaos than with a screwball comedy?

    Shawn Francis
    31 Oct 2014 | 6:23 pm
    (Warning! There are spoilers in these woods! Be careful in your tread! You have been warned) Maleficent is movie number five in the big budget, live action, Hollywood fairy tale reinvention series that’s currently en vogue. Other entries were Red Riding Hood (2011), Snow White And The Huntsman (2012), Hansel And Gretal: Witch Hunters (2013) and Jack And The Giant Slayer (2013). Maleficent is similar to Jack And The Giant Slayer in that its concept is to show the “real story” behind the fairy tale, with this movie it’s Cinderella, but told from the perspective of the perceived “evil…

As sins go, it’s an awful one too because it destroys any morality you may have had and any prejudices you might carry, thus making sure you think of nothing else but it. Greed has even found it’s way into the fantasy world of Middle Earth. Barring any “special rings” among the various beings that inhabit the realm, it appears Dwarves are more susceptible than most to its corruption. They used to live in this great mountain…

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…

  • Le Fear II: Le Sequel (2015, Jason Croot)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    29 Oct 2014 | 7:41 am
    I thought the biggest joke in Le Fear II: Le Sequel was, not to rip off Maltin too much, the title. I didn’t realize it was an actual sequel. I thought writer-director Croot was spoofing the idea of making a sequel to a crappy horror movie. But, not. It’s an actual sequel, though there’s no time given to establishing that situation for the viewer. Croot somewhat successfully employs improvisation style, but without any thoughtfulness as to how the Le Sequel will play for the viewer. He shoots it on video, with occasionally jerky camera motion, but improvisation comedy has…

    26 Oct 2014 | 10:48 am
    It’s hard to imagine how Our RoboCop Remake would play for someone who doesn’t only love the original Robocop, but has seen it quite a few times. A lot of the humor in Remake is broad, but enough of the choices are subtle and incisive (while sometimes still maintaining a wink), one has to be familiar with the source material. The Remake project is the work of approximately fifty filmmakers who each took a different scene of Robocop and adapted it. Some are more straightforward than others; some use the beginning of the scene as a starting point for comedic interpretation, some…

  • 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 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…

    19 Feb 2014 | 11:00 am
    A movie trailer is a preview, or advertisement for a movie. The first movie trailer was produced in 1913 with a short commercial for a musical called The Pleasure Seekers. Trailers were originally shown at the end of the movie, but since people would leave when the movies were done the trailers were quickly moved […] The post The Psychology Behind Movie Trailers appeared first on Film Buy

  • The Babadook Review

    26 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    The film focuses on Amelia (Essie Davis), a single mother traumatised by the loss of her husband, who died in a car crash on the way to the maternity ward. Six years on, her troubled young son Samuel is determined to step up and be the man of the house, protecting his mother from the monsters he sees in every shadow of their home. Samuel's obsession with imaginary monsters is worsened when he discovers a mysterious children's book named The Babadook, a creepy, hand-drawn pop-up book that's all sharp edges and monochrome drawings that recall the early silent films that seem to occupy Amelia's…
  • The Judge Review

    23 Oct 2014 | 2:12 pm
    Downey gives good Downey as Hank Palmer, a slick but morally questionable attorney who makes a good living defending those he knows to be guilty. In the middle of a case, Hank receives the call that his mother has died and he has to return to the home town he left 20 years ago to attend her funeral, which reignites the strained relationship he has with his father Joseph (Duvall), the straight-laced small town judge who doesn't approve of Hank's career choices. Within a couple of days, the fractious relationship between father and son reaches boiling point, but Hank's plans to head back to the…
  • 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…
  • Interview with Life After Beth writer/director Jeff Baena

    4 Oct 2014 | 6:47 am
    So what was it that made you go for this story? Did you specifically want to do a zombie film? I think I just had the seed of the idea from...honestly, I don't know where it came from. 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…

  • The Camera Never Lies

    31 Oct 2014 | 11:37 am
      Nightcrawler by George Wolf I don’t know why it took so long to combine Network, Broadcast News and American Psycho, but Nightcrawler is here now, so buckle down for a helluva ride. It is a mesmerizing film, propelled by a career-defining performance from Jake Gyllenhaal. Years from now, his “Travis Bickle“  may very well be Lou Bloom, a strangely polite, utterly driven man in search of a purpose. He finds it via an old camcorder, which becomes his passage into the life of a freelance videographer in L.A. Night after night, Lou waits by a police scanner for a chance…
  • Halloween Countdown, Day 31

    31 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) Not everyone considers The Texas Chainsaw Massacre a classic. Those people are wrong. Perhaps even stupid. Tobe Hooper’s camera work, so home-movie like, worked with the “based on a true story” tag line like nothing before it, and the result seriously disturbed the folks of 1974. It has been ripped off and copied dozens of times since its release, but in the context of its time, it was so absolutely original it was terrifying. Hooper sidestepped all the horror gimmicks audiences had grown accustomed to – a spooky score that let you know…
  • MaddWolf interviews Bruce Campbell!

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:55 am
      Bruce Campbell loves Halloween. “Halloween is like Christmas for what I do,” he told us, “and I choose to spend it in Columbus, Ohio!” We’re pretty giddy about that. Bruce will be in town Friday for the Wizard World Ohio Comic Con at the Convention Center. He’ll be available for pictures and autographs with fans, as well as a Q&A panel where he promises to “destroy the audience!” He was good enough to talk with us Thursday morning about the Comic Con, why the Evil Dead series is so endlessly popular, his advice for trick or treaters,…
  • Halloween Countdown, Day 30

    30 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    American Psycho (2000) A giddy hatchet to the head of the abiding culture of the Eighties, American Psycho represents the sleekest, most confident black comedy – perhaps ever. Director Mary Harron trimmed Bret Easton Ellis’s novel, giving it unerring focus. More importantly, the film soars due to Christian Bale’s utterly astonishing performance as narcissist, psychopath, and Huey Lewis fan Patrick Bateman. There’s an elegant exaggeration to the satire afoot. Bateman is a slick, sleek Wall Street toady, pompous one minute because of his smart business cards and quick…
  • Halloween Countdown, Day 29

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Hellraiser (1987) “The box…you opened it. We came.” Man, those cenobites were scary cool, weren’t they? Hellraiser, Clive Barker’s feature directing debut, worked not only as a grisly splatterfest, but also as a welcome shift from the rash of teen slasher movies that followed the success of Halloween. Barker was exploring more adult, decidedly kinkier fare, and Hellraiser is steeped in themes of S&M and the relationship between pleasure and pain. Hedonist Frank Cotton solves an ancient puzzle box, which summons the fearsome Cenobites, who literally tear Frank…

    27 Oct 2014 | 7:50 pm
    Do you want to hear a story fit for Halloween? Of course, you do! I know you’ve already heard a lot of stories about the dead, but the one that I want you to hear (and see!) would be different. You see, this story comes with a wager made by gods of death. Yes, some of the characters die, but as you might expect from a story about Halloween, they don’t stay dead. But that’s not what’s

    I remember when I attended a talk on Sales and Account Management a few years ago, and the facilitator was telling us about creating rapport with your prospective client. There were the usual slides on kinesics, verbal and non-verbal communication behaviors, research, and a few more of those “tips” and “techniques” on creating a good first impression and turning that potential sale into an

Ah yes, we also hear clues that in this movie, Tony Stark himself may have something to do with the creation of Ultron. Probaby the reason why Ultron looked very similar to the Iron Man armour…only creepier.

    You can just tell how much people love desserts by the number of sugary entries in this year’s Best Food Forward. We saw a lot of cupcakes, cookies, chocolates, and more cakes! No wonder everyone in the venue seemed to be in a heightened sugar rush! Cookies from The Bald Chef And so we went around tasting, buying, and asking (mostly tasting, actually) about the specialty recipes laid

    Seeing all those teachers gathered at SM MOA Arena for the PLDT Gabay Guro Grand Gathering made me sentimental and reminisce of how much fun (and at some times, terrifying) my highschool teachers made my fragile, adolescent years. Looking back, I realize that a huge part of my childhood was honed not just by family and friends, but also by my teachers. My memories of highschool are still

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron Clip Leaks, Sets Up Marvel's Civil War

    30 Oct 2014 | 4:04 pm
    We got all of the announcements from the big Marvel event earlier that went down earlier week, but what didn't arrive online were the two new videos they showed. Luckily for us (albeit probably frustrating for Marvel), both of them were discretely filmed and leaked online. The first one, a teaser for Avengers: Infinity War, hit the web yesterday, and now we've got a pretty decent look at the second: a full scene from Age of Ultron that succinctly sets the stage for Civil War.

    Yesterday, Marvel broke the internet when they announced all of their films from now up to 2019. Nine films were presented, including newbies like Doctor Strange and Black Panther, and the ridiculously exciting prospect of Avengers: Infinity War, a movie that will presumably be so packed with awesome, it needs to be split into two parts.

There are some really great ones too including Edge of Tomorrow (it's really, really good people, please give it the audience it missed in theaters), 22 Jump Street, and a few other big 2014 releases like The Giver and Expendables 3.

He’s great-looking, very smart, witty, confident, and to top all, he is the best closer in town. He can win in court, but he mostly doesn’t even let cases go that far. Unsurprisingly, he’s about to become a senior partner. Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a different kind of genius. He has a photographic memory: once he reads something, he doesn’t even forget a comma from it. He’s street smart too: he’d be a great lawyer.
  • Something’s Gotta Give starring Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson & Keanu Reeves: How A Romantic Comedy Ought to Be

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

    First DC Comics and Warner Bros. tried to make the jump to become the first company to make a female led comic book movie since the flops that were Elektra and Catwoman. They announced a Wonder Woman movie. Then Marvel made their big Marvel Phase 3 announcements this week and it turned out they were already working on a female led movie with Captain Marvel. Now Sony, who is still reeling from the unfair poor performance of their Amazing Spider-Man franchise, wants in on the act. With the future of Spider-Man movies in question because people didn’t appreciate the direction they took the…

With that said, there are still three characters that should do well regardless of anything else – Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The Trinity. So, what do we know so far about Wonder Woman? Well, she will be the first female superhero to get her own movie, with Captain Marvel coming one year later for Marvel. Gal Gadot…

    For some reason the current TV season looks bad, and I'm not even talking about quality because we almost never had quality on TV at this time of year.

Waugh who didn’t do anything in the last 9 years was rusty at best. The film had no director’s signature or any direction for that matter. The cast doesn’t get out from it clean either, Aaron Paul was a big shot in Breaking Bed but this Vin Diesel part was way over his head. Imogen Poots had a few funny segments but nothing more than that. Michael Keaton was in this film as well unfortunately until this point I fail to understand what…

  • Sony Creating A Female Team-Up Movie In The 'Spider-Man' Universe?

    Caleb Williams
    30 Oct 2014 | 1:16 pm
    Long before both Marvel and DC announced Captain Marvel & Wonder Woman were coming to the big screen the guys over at Sony had the beat on them when it comes to female lead movies. They announced several months back that a female-lead movie set within their Spider-Man universe was on the way. This lead many to assume it would eventually be announced that it would follow Black Cat (Presumably played by Felicia Hardy).Well, today the guys over at Badass Digest revealed a small tidbit that Sony is considering doing a female team-up movie that will include Black Cat, Spider-Woman and Silver…

  • The Babadook

    Dan Meier
    29 Oct 2014 | 12:23 pm
    From Rosemary’s Baby to Mama, horror has a long history of exploring motherhood. The latest example is The Babadook, an Australian chiller about a struggling widow (Essie Davis) and her troubled child (Noah Wiseman), whose fear of monsters turns into a reality thanks to the titular pop-up book; a kids’ book scary enough to make Roald Dahl squirm. Cementing the horror genre’s place as fertile ground for women filmmakers and feminism, The Babadook is the debut feature of writer/director Jennifer Kent, who crafts this creepy little movie with a level of care abandoned by…

    Looking though one of those lists of the 100 greatest films or something, this was the first one I hadn’t seen. I say I hadn’t seen it; what I mean is I hadn’t seen it since I was a small child, when I was too stupid to work out what was going on.  “Anyone have a cure for pneumonia?” For those of you who don’t know, it’s a film about the transition from silent to talking cinema in the late 1920s. The most successful screen couple in America (Gene Kelly and Jean Hagen) realise the future of their medium may be under threat following the success of the…

    Three years ago, Brad Pitt vowed to stop acting at the age of 50. Now that he’s reached that age but nonetheless stars in David Ayer’s Fury, a World War II movie about a US tank crew fighting through Nazi Germany, one can’t help but wish that he had actually quit.  Of course, a grizzled Pitt looks great atop a beat-up Sherman tank, even if he’s doing exactly as he was in Inglourious Basterds. But a man of his intelligence and liberalism should know better than to star in and executive produce such an obvious piece of pro-war propaganda. The tank’s…
  • 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…

    Denzel Washington plays Bob, an ordinary hardware store worker and all-round nice guy, working his way through the hundred novels to read before you die, and befriending a young sex worker (Chloe Moretz) in his local diner. 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…

  • Did Seth Rogen Land Huge Role Playing Steve Wozniak In Upcoming Steve Jobs Biopic?

    Zachary Rowell
    31 Oct 2014 | 6:04 am
    This news was certainly unexpected. The Hollywood Reporter claims director Danny Boyle wants Seth Rogen to play Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak in the untitled film based on Walter Isaacson’s book. They claim that Rogen hasn’t officially been offered the part, but it’s clear both Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin want him. However, Variety is reporting that the deal is essentially done. Their sources have allegedly confirmed Seth Rogen will star in Sony’s Steve Jobs biopic. If the reports are indeed true, this would be huge news, and probably the most important role…

Tickets for the third film in the ‘Hunger Games‘ franchise went on sell yesterday (I already purchased mine) and to celebrate, Lionsgate released the final trailer for the highly-anticipated film. And we’re not lying when we say that it’s one of the most anticipated films of 2014. It landed atop Fandango’s list of most-anticipated films for 2014. They began filming Mockingjay — Part 1 back in late 2013, and wrapped everything up in June of this year. In the…

They made several huge announcements during yesterday’s press event; however, none of the announcements involved Benedict Cumberbatch. Marvel President Kevin Feige announced the names of nine films the studio will release over the next five years. The two biggest films announced? Captain Marvel and Black Panther.

    While revenge fantasies have been well covered in the theater, there’s still something about them that sucks us all in. Produced by two former stuntmen, David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, this is a movie made for people who like action, by a couple of guys who really know action. Keanu Reeves plays the title character, John Wick. When we meet Mr. Wick, he’s living the quiet life in New Jersey, happily spending time with a puppy bought for him by his dead wife. Then, enter some Russian mobsters, who see his flashy car decide to break into his house and beat the stuffing out of him, as well…

Last Friday, Marvel Studios invited the press to attend a mysterious event at Disney’s El Capitan Theater on October 28, which is obviously today.

    31 Oct 2014 | 3:40 pm
    Nowadays with Marvel, DC Entertainment, 20th Century Fox, and Sony Pictures, it seems like the superhero movies market will be saturated within the next few years. Audiences are already feeling slightly overwhelmed with the announced slates for Marvel and DC, including the franchises owned by Fox and Sony.  Here’s what Christopher Nolan has to say on the matter: “…I love working in that field and hopefully I’ve added something to it. I know to some extent we encouraged more of it. You don’t want Hollywood to hit saturation point with those things. But then Zack…

    Do you think Virtual Reality has a place in cinema in the future? Will people use headsets like the Rift from Oculus VR to watch movies like Interstellar instead of going to an IMAX theater? James Cameron believes it’s ridiculous to think VR will be used in movies. “There seems to be a lot of excitement around something that, to me, is a yawn, frankly,” Cameron told the WSJ during a recent conference in Laguna Beach, CA. “The question that always occurred to me is, when is it going to be mature, when is it going to be accepted by the public at large, when are people…

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.

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.

    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…

    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…

    To cap off 31 Days of Hell, Blake brings us an epic review of every movie in the Halloween series. The legacy of John Carpenter's Halloweenneeds no introduction, but in the spirit of the holiday, let's give it one. The film was released in 1978 to a lukewarm reception… at first. Unbeknownst to its own director, the word of mouth and critical praise was slowly piling on. Siskel and Ebert gushed over the film with 4 star reviews, audiences everywhere started going crazy for it, and before John Carpenter could even sign his film deal with Avco Embassy (a deal which gave us another genre…

    To close out 31 Days of Hell, we present ten of the best horror directors ever. William FriedkinWhile not ostensibly a horror film director by nature or ouvre, the irascible, confrontational William Friedkin has managed to create some of the most deeply disturbing and unsettling films in cinema history.  From the legendary horror film The Exorcist, the nightmarish industrial fever dream Sorcerer, the gay undercover cop thriller Cruising, and most recently, his two collaborations with playwright Tracy Letts’ Bug and Killer Joe, Friedkin has managed to fearlessly push the envelope…

    Nightcrawler hit cinemas tonight. Does Gyllenhaal do it again?"You talkin' to me?You talkin' to me?"Jake Gyllenhaal continues his upward trend of dramatic brilliance in this week's release, Nightcrawler. This is the fourth film in a row where Gyllenhaal sheds any former sense of self and throws himself at a role with focused abandonment and unabashed dedication to creating a vivid and disturbing portrayal of a strange man sliding off the rails.With Nightcrawler, Gyllenhall becomes a chameleon like creature that leaves all reality behind as he fixates on one major task. He becomes the…

    For one of our final entries in the 31 Days of Hell series, Andrew reviews the 1981 film, Possession. "Ummm..honey, you've got somethingon your face."Not every horror film is necessarily meant to simply be a thriller designed to entertain audiences.  More often than not, the real aims of the writer-directors behind them are therapeutic.  David Cronenberg’s The Brood, for instance, was fueled by his rage over his bitter divorce of his first wife.  Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist is said by its creator to have been healing for his debilitating slump into depression. …
  • New Releases: Plastic

    30 Oct 2014 | 9:20 am
    This week saw the home video release of Plastic, a crime drama "based" on a true story. "Give me back my sandwichor the pretty girl gets it!"2014 hasn't seen many good crime dramas. Well, Plastic is here to put its best foot forward in changing that. While it's not going to win any awards for originality and doesn't break any new ground for the genre, it's a stylistic effort from director Julian Gilbey.Plastic features a believable cast of young Brits, a timely plot about credit card fraud and identity theft, and has just enough charisma to make it an interesting watch. When compared…

    10 Oct 2014 | 8:26 am
    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. England, 1941 With London in the midst of the blitz, two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House.

    Dracula gets an updated, comic book-ish origin story in Gary Shore’s “Dracula Untold.” Check out a handful of new images from the flick below, opening this Friday. The most interesting part of this movie for me isn’t the Dracula stuff. I mean, Dracula as Batman, climbing some mountain and drinking some blood and then turning into a superhero to save the good people of his land? Meh. But the director, Gary Shore, though. I really liked this guy when he did a techno-Samurai-futuristic concept trailer for something called “Cup of Tears” and have been waiting…

    Ahead of its Season 5 premiere this Sunday, AMC has officially renewed “The Walking Dead” for a sixth season. 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…

    Remember that evil doll from “The Conjuring”? 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…

Yes, they couldn’t even make the effort to just write an original (sort of) script for their reboot. Talk about lazy, sheesh!

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

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

They included Bogart – the dramatic actor, Cagney – the gangster, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly – the musical stars, Charlies Chaplin, Buster Keaton and The Marx Brothers – the comedians and Kirk Douglas, Marlon Brando and Sydney Poitier – the new age. But I think every avid classic film fan has at least one or two objections to the list. For me I like to imagine George Raft has place 51. He was as accomplished an actor as…

  • FURY: Great Action and Tropes Galore

    Jay Ledbetter
    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    David Ayer’s Fury is the story of an American tank unit led by “Wardaddy” (Brad Pitt) near the end of the European Theatre in World War II. Ayer is still best known for writing 2001’s Training Day, but after he made the surprisingly acclaimed End of Watch, he has been given the chance to direct a full-blown war film. Ayer‘s hyper-masculine style is one that could be to the detriment of a war film that is trying to stay grounded in reality, but he is able to dial back his tendencies enough to keep it from being a glorification of violence. The violence is there…

Unbeknownst to them, the man they robbed is none other than John Wick, a former assassin who was so good at his job that he earned a nickname of “The Boogeyman.” Let’s just say that they pissed off the wrong guy. Action films don’t always try their hardest to provide a complex story or to get the best performances out of their actors, as they know that the audience is just there to see people get shot, buildings getting blown up,…
  • Why Film Noir Should Come Back With a Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    Jacqui Siler
    27 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Film Noir stems back to the earlier days of Hollywood, starting with the Humphrey Bogart classic The Maltese Falcon in 1941. This film, the first from cinema great John Huston, established many of the trademarks we associate with the sub-genre today. The term Film Noir literally means “black film” and refers to how dark and shadowy the films tend to be. The 1940s in particular saw a boom of Film Noir films with The Maltese Falcon, Casablanca, The Third Man, The Big Sleep, Laura and many, many more (there’s a relatively comprehensive list available here).

    Tom Hardy is one of the most versatile and talented actors in film today. His resume is proof. From his first performance as Twombly in Black Hawk Down, to his most recent one as Bob in The Drop, he has delivered a dazzling array of characters on screen. Whether he is a protagonist or villain, a lead or supporting actor, expect to be entertained by the talent he brings to the movies he is in. Before this film, he was the brutally-strong Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. These big and brawny characters that he seems to play with such ease could be the reason why he has become an actor of star…

    30 Oct 2014 | 12:59 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Elements of Peeping Tom, Network, Taxi Driver and a powerhouse performance by Jake Gyllenhaal are all fused together by veteran screenwriter Dan Gilroy in his directorial debut, the jittery, sleazy Nightcrawler. A gaunt-looking Gyllenhaal plays Louis Bloom, a twitchy bottom-feeder with aspirations, but for what? Even he's not certain. At the start of the film, he is busted by a security guard as he steals copper wiring, scraps of metal, and even the guard's wristwatch after he manages to overpower the man. But a transaction for the stolen items sets Bloom on a different path…
  • Movie Review: Whiplash (2014)

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

    24 Oct 2014 | 7:53 am
    by Tony Dayoub "Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see." That's a piece of advice offered in Stonehearst Asylum to the film's ostensible hero, Dr. Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess). It's also the most important suggestion made by author Edgar Allan Poe to his reader in the droll short story that the movie is loosely based on, "The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether." Directed by Brad Anderson (The Call), Stonehearst Asylum is more clever than scary. But there's a lot to be said for a well plotted thriller in a time when too many horror movies hinge more on shocking their…
  • Movie Review: Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) (2014)

    22 Oct 2014 | 10:19 am
    by Tony Dayoub Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a rare and unexpected delight from director Alejandro González Iñárritu, a filmmaker who has made a habit of producing dense, multi-plot storylines that converge in their final moments to offer some Great Truth. Birdman somehow feels both narrower and more transcendent. When the score's percussion takes over, a stifling anxiety sets in. When its symphonic sounds take precedence, Birdman soars. There is no need to clumsily converge at the conclusion because the linkage between Birdman's subplots is already baked into its…

    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…

  • The Book Of Life

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

    22 Oct 2014 | 2:19 pm
    The Evil Dead     "The Evil Dead", structurally speaking, is a horrendous film. Production design is virtually non-existent, as costuming, make-up, and setting were seemingly thrown together at a moment's notice, with little physical effort or any exertion of imaginative thought. The lone cabin in the heart of the woods does entail some feeling of isolation and trepidation; however, it is lost once the "demons" first appear and one realizes that the setting is not so much fearful, as much as what is going on inside the internal dwellings of the characters.    Not to…
  • First Knight

    21 Oct 2014 | 3:32 pm
    First Knight      Europe's Medieval period of history is one filled with sword fighting, exquisite architecture, and ultimately, romanticism. Of course, this is the idea that prevails from numerous depictions in the art of film. Although these aspects surely existed, this age is best characterized as a time of great adaption and substantial growth for humanity through religion, literature, and a number of fine arts.     King Arthur is a man that can be ascribed with the same misconceived notions that this era of history justifies. For, his life's work has…
  • 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…

    Review Don Kaye 10/31/2014 at 11:47AM Read our review as Jake Gyllenhaal transforms himself into a creepy crime scene cameraman in Nightcrawler. Nightcrawler sounds like the name of a horror movie, and in a way this superb and original thriller from screenwriter-turned-director Dan Gilroy is as eerie as any tale of vampires or zombies. The monster in the story is very much a human being -- at least he looks, walks and talks like one -- but it can’t be a coincidence that the nickname for his chosen profession is also a term that refers to earthworms, which live in dirt and feed on living and…

The film was released in 1978 to a lukewarm reception… at first. Unbeknownst to its own director, the word of mouth and critical praise was slowly piling on.

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

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

  • MOVIE REVIEW: The Sacrament

    Some Jerk From Boston
    31 Oct 2014 | 12:50 pm
    Some sentences, once heard, immediately make you want to put a pistol in your mouth to reset the memory. “‘The Sacrament’ is a direct to Netflix found footage horror movie produced by Eli Roth” had me cocking the hammer and fidgeting with the trigger worse than Martin Riggs in ‘Lethal Weapon’. Everything about that film’s description is horrible. It’s the English language version of haggis.   Let me be clear, at one point, each component was, to a point, revolutionary. Found footage was unheard of before ‘The Blair Witch Project’, Eli Roth brought the gorey shock back…

    Dark Sky Films is at it again.  Just when I was thinking to myself, you know I haven’t seen a good werewolf movie in a while.  My prayers were answered.  Not to the lord, I like to think that there is a higher power who deals specifically in horror movies, pizza, beer, and chicks with big boobs.  I know you’re out there big guy and I salute you.  Late Phases stars Nick Damici better known for being the bad ass in Stake Land, and Ethan Embry known for being my teenage crush in high school.  Can’t Hardly wait is one of my favorite movies of all time.  Yes this is the…
  • MOVIE REVIEW: V/H/S: Viral

    30 Oct 2014 | 9:07 pm
    The VHS films are on a short list of horror films in recent years that have developed a strong following. The first film was a raw and gritty flick that held on to a certain amount of realism (as much as the genre will allow) that made you feel dirty. The follow-up, VHS-2, upped the ante with a more coherent plot that delved into the VHS mythos enough to get the fans hungry enough for a third installment. This writer was one of those fans who was waiting with fork in hand (Yes, I travel with a fork in hand…. I’m bigged boned dammit!!) ready to dig into whatever gory mayhem this…
  • Trailer: Starry Eyes

    30 Oct 2014 | 2:50 pm
    Indie horror is really killing it…with the release of Tusk, Summer of Blood, Babadook, Horns, and The Canal to name a few, now comes Starry Eyes. This flick made a big splash at SXSW this year, and it’s easy to see why. Like they say the devil is in the details. This modern take on the Devil and Daniel Webster, tells the story of a young actress willing to do anything to get her name in the bright lights. So if you thought if A Star Is Born would be better with more satanism, this is for you. Personally, I can’t wait to check it out. From MPI Media: Written and Directed by…
