  • Dave Legeno, 1963-2014: a Remembrance by J.d. Zeik

    Matt Zoller Seitz
    12 Jul 2014 | 12:05 pm
    Editor's note: My friend J.d. Zeik, screenwriter-producer of "Ronin" and "Witchblade," wrote this remembrance of the time he hung out with actor Dave Legeno, who was found dead last Sunday in Death Valley, Ca. Legeno came to acting later than some, following stints working at demolition sites and as a professional wrestler. He got his first screen credit in "Snatch" and was best known for his recurring role as Fenrir Greyback in three "Harry Potter" movies. For more about Legeno's death, read the L.A.

  • It's Gonna Feel All Right: The Musical and Cinematic Legacy of "A Hard Day's Night"

    Matt Zoller Seitz
    11 Jul 2014 | 5:13 pm
    "A Hard Day's Night," which was released 50 years ago this week, was never expected to be a hit. In fact one of the United Artists film executives who supervised its release frankly predicted that the studio would lose money on the film—a slapped-together black-and-white faux-documentary about four mop-topped musicians—but it was fine because it was just advertising for the sure-thing soundtrack anyway. He was wrong, of course. "A Hard Day's Night" went on to become a huge international box office smash and, to the astonishment of everyone, filmmakers and Beatles included, a critical…
  • Seinfeld at 25: or, You Don't Have to Like Characters as Long as You Find Them Interesting

    Matt Zoller Seitz
    11 Jul 2014 | 4:46 pm
    "Seinfeld," that classic Show about Nothing, debuted 25 years ago this week on NBC, and somehow changed everything. It did through formal audacity (the show changed its pace, speed and emphases many times throughout its run, always staying a step ahead of its audience) but also by showcasing four lead characters and many supporting characters who were not only fundamentally unsympathetic, but demonstrated very little potential for growth, much less redemption. I wrote a piece about the series for New York Magazine, which you can read at full length by clicking here. I wrote:"For all its…

These include not just those series that branched off from popular shows focusing on a favorite supporting character but also those that continued following the leads. The latter could be thought of as TV show sequels, like Archie Bunker’s Place. Prequels, however, have not been as big a part of television tradition.

Ant-Man will also star Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson, David Dastmalchian and Corey Stoll. And stay with Movie Fanatic as…
  • The November Man Trailer: Pierce Brosnan Back in Action

    23 Jul 2014 | 5:16 pm
    The November Man has premiered its latest trailer and it is a joy to see Pierce Brosnan back in action for the first time since he retired as James Bond.  Brosnan stars in Roger Donaldson’s The November Man as a highly trained ex-CIA agent who is been living the high life of retirement in Europe. He’s lured out of retirement for “one last job” and as you can guess, it is not so smooth. The November Man Movie Trailer The November Man, so-called because that is Brosnan’s character’s nickname, also stars Luke Bracey, Olga Kurylenko and Will Patton. Look for The November Man August…

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:50 pm
    It appears that a full on battle is about to descend on Panem as Lionsgate has released the official Comic-Con poster for Mockingjay Part 1. The one-sheet was created by street artist WK Interact and celebrates the arrival of the first part of the final chapter of The Hunger Games series. The film doesn’t arrive until November 21 and anticipation could not be higher to see how Katniss Everdeen and her fellow dissenters fare in their effort to make change in Panem. We’re intrigued by the President Snow Unity Address and cannot wait until we get our first teaser or trailer. And we’re…

  • Vernon, Florida

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

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

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

    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.

    24 Jul 2014 | 12:46 am
    There's been a plethora of hype for The Avengers: Age of Ultron over the past week, but that's because we're about to see the first bit of footage from the sequel here at Comic-Con in San Diego. The movie won't arrive until next summer, but Marvel loves to hype up their future releases (as we've seen since they're staking out dates way ahead of time). But this is all good news for fans, because it means they can get their hands on some cool commemorative stuff like two concept art posters that were handed out at the convention today at Marvel's booth.

    It is my tradition to kick off Comic-Con by walking the showfloor on preview night and taking photos of anything movie-related that interests me. This year the showfloor is overrun with Batman mania, because today is "Batman Day" celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the DC Comics superhero. There were also some new discoveries including Smaug at Weta and Hunger Games guards. I made my way through the crowds and snapped as many shots as I could before getting out, but there will certainly be more to come at the end (as I always head back again). For now, take a look at our preview night gallery…

We were lucky enough to get a personal tour from Guillermo del Toro, introducing us to some cool artifacts from the film inside an almost claustrophobic replica of the haunted house that will be featured in the horror flick slated for release in 2015.

That would be a perfect release date for The Avengers 3 since it would be three years after The Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015.

    This new poster for Heavy Metal, designed by Swedish artist Killian Eng and set for release at Comic Con, doesn’t seem to have much relation to the 1981 film of the same name. The poster is fantastic (and would pair well with Eng’s great poster for Jodorowsky’s Dune) but doesn’t feature any elements of the animated anthology film. In fact, it looks a lot more like it could be a cover for an issue of the magazine from which the film drew stories, artists, and inspiration. In truth, the current owners of Heavy Metal are looking to make a bit of a scene at Comic Con this…

    Around the turn of the 19th century, a few Boer families - Afrikaner descendants of the original Dutch settlers in what is now South Africa - fled the country to escape persecution by the British during the Anglo-Boer Wars. A ship took them to Argentina, where for over 100 years they have kept their culture and language alive in an isolated pocket of Patagonia. The Last Boers of Patagonia documents this astonishing community, who speak an archaic form of Afrikaans that is extinct in modern South Africa, and at risk of disappearing completely as the remote population ages, and…

  • Welcome To Sweden Review – TV NBC Takes A Risk With ‘Worldly’ Comedic Style

    Marc Eastman
    15 Jul 2014 | 2:26 pm
    Welcome to Sweden Review NBC is rolling the dice on an idea that not only has long odds, it has the potential to alienate a large portion of the target demographic. That’s not quite as bad as it sounds, because the alienation only comes by way of a potential nepotism backlash, and the public is somewhat immune to paying attention to such things, unless someone stirs them up about it. Welcome to Sweden is a sit-com that is ostensibly based on Greg Poehler’s real experience as a New Yorker who moves to Sweden to live with his girlfriend.

If you’re going to take a shot at something beloved by so many, you better hit it out of the park, and this show does.

Not because the film was bad, but because of the subject matter and the way the story is told. When people say a film is tough, they mean what they say.

    20 Jul 2014 | 12:31 pm
    On strong word-of-mouth, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes held the top spot for the second weekend in a row. Among the new releases, The Purge: Anarchy put up solid business in second place, while Planes: Fire & Rescue missed the mark and Sex Tape flopped.The Top 12 earned $134.9 million this weekend. That's off 26 percent from the same frame last year; overall, July box office is down over 30 percent year-to-year.Dawn of the Planet of the Apes eased 50 percent to $36.3 million. In co...
  • Friday Report: 'Purge' Slays, 'Sex Tape' Disappoints on Friday

    19 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    The Purge: Anarchy took first place on Friday, though it will almost certainly fall behind Dawn of the Planet of the Apes over the three-day weekend.Playing at 2,805 theaters, the horror sequel earned an estimated $13 million on opening day. That's down 22 percent from the first Purge, which debuted to $16.8 million last June. If it follows the first movie's pattern, it will wind up with just over $26 million for the weekend. Reviews and word-of-mouth have improved time around, though, so i...
  • Forecast: 'Purge,' 'Sex Tape' Challenge 'Apes'

    17 Jul 2014 | 4:53 pm
    Friday AM Update: Playing at 2,194 locations, The Purge: Anarchy earned an estimated $2.6 million from late Thursday shows. In comparison, the first Purge grossed $3.4 million on Thursday night. This drop suggests that The Purge: Anarchy will fall short of the first movie's $34 million opening weekend. Meanwhile, Sex Tape earned $1.1 million on Thursday night. That's less than half of the $2.56 million that Neighbors took in on Thursday, but is also on par with last year's The Heat ($1 mill...
  • Fox is First Studio to Reach $1 Billion in 2014

    15 Jul 2014 | 3:30 pm
    Thanks to a strong debut from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 20th Century Fox has became the first studio to pass $1 billion at the domestic box office this year. The studio crossed the $1 billion mark on Sunday, which was the 194th day of the year. The last time it took this long for a studio to get there was in 2006, when Disney hit that level in 215 days.Fox's biggest title of the year is also currently the highest-grossing movie of the Summer: through Sunday, X-Men: Days of Future Past...

    With strong reviews and goodwill from its well-liked predecessor, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes easily ruled the domestic box office this weekend.Overall, though, it was another slow weekend at U.S. movie theaters: the Top 12 earned $138.6 million, which is down 26 percent from the same weekend last year.Debuting at 3,967 theaters, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes earned $72.6 million this weekend.

    17 Jul 2014 | 4:15 pm
    Begin Again It's not perfect, but this is a charming and well-acted musical drama, with Mark Ruffalo as a washed-up record company founder and Keira Knightley as a singer at the end of her rope. Boyhood Richard Linklater's instant classic, filmed over 12 years, tells the fictional story of a boy growing up in Texas, whose parents (Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, both magnificent) are divorced. Closed Curtain The latest "non-film" by Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi (in 2010, the Iranian government banned him from making movies for 20 years) is a more mellow, almost resigned meditation on…
  • DVD review: 'The Woman on the Beach'

    Ruthe Stein
    17 Jul 2014 | 4:15 pm
    Jean Renoir managed to be almost as famous a movie director as his father was a painter, and that's saying a lot if you recall Pierre-Auguste's fleshy yet exquisite women set in bucolic surroundings. In a career that stretched from silents through to the 1960s, Renoir was involved with more than 40 films, primarily as director but also as screenwriter, producer and actor. Thanks to the Warner Bros. department that combs through the studio's archives for worthy films that haven't been available on DVD - or at least not in years - a little-known Renoir film called "The Woman on the Beach" has…
  • 'Sex Tape' review: Clever setup fails to reach climax

    Mick LaSalle
    17 Jul 2014 | 8:56 am
    Sex Tape Comedy. Starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz. Directed by Jake Kasdan. (R. 90 minutes.) "Sex Tape" has its share of laughs, but it's not the hilarious romp that the trailers seemed to promise. About a third of it is a brilliant setup - but it's for a joke that never happens, at least not completely. A comedy, especially a broad sex comedy, needs to go to extremes. But "Sex Tape" is a little careful and contained. If you know anything about the movie, you know that this is the one with Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a husband and wife who make a sex tape - and accidentally…
  • 'Wish I Was Here' review: funny, touching, soul-searching

    G. Allen Johnson
    17 Jul 2014 | 8:49 am
    Wish I Was Here Comedy-drama. Starring Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin. Co-written and directed by Braff. (R. 106 minutes.) It says something about the state of Hollywood filmmaking when two of the summer's best-written, most incisive films about the challenge of strengthening family relationships without giving up your career dreams were made by successful actors who shouldn't have to beg. First there was Jon Favreau's "Chef," a labor of love that needed favors from Dustin Hoffman and others to be made. And now there's a wonderful film from Zach Braff, the star of "Scrubs" whose…
  • 'The Purge: Anarchy' review: Bloody whack at social commentary

    Walter Addiego
    17 Jul 2014 | 8:49 am
    The purge is sponsored by the U.S. government, under the control of the "New Founding Fathers," clearly intended as a portrayal of extreme conservatives. The film is made up of long stretches of intense and gory violence as the streets are taken over by murderous loonies, scenes that are occasionally interrupted by episodes of ham-handed social commentary and satire. The waitress and daughter are Hispanic and a charismatic leader (Michael K. Williams) is heading a rebellious group of black men opposing the government and the purge. The sources that clearly influenced filmmaker James DeMonaco…

  • The month that changed the world: Friday, 24 July 1914

    24 Jul 2014 | 5:30 am
    July 1914 was the month that changed the world. On 28 June 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, and just five weeks later the Great Powers of Europe were at war. But how did it all happen? Historian Gordon Martel, author of The Month That Changed The World: July 1914, is blogging regularly for us over the next few weeks, giving us a week-by-week and day-by-day account of the events that led up to the First World War. By Gordon Martel By mid-day Friday heads of state, heads of government, foreign ministers, and ambassadors learned the terms of the Austrian ultimatum. A preamble to…
  • Polygamous wives who helped settle the west

    24 Jul 2014 | 4:30 am
    By Paula Kelly Harline Happy Pioneer Day! The morning of 24 July in downtown Salt Lake City, thousands of Westerners watch the “Days of ’47” parade celebrating the 1847 arrival of Mormon pioneers; in the afternoon, they attend a rodeo or take picnics to the canyons; at night they launch as many fireworks as they did for Fourth of July. What may be less known than the role of Brigham Young in all this is the contribution made by polygamous women. When Brigham Young parceled out Salt Lake City land plots, he allowed polygamous husbands to draw a lot for each of their wives, and this…

    When Leonard Bernstein first arrived in New York, he was unknown, much like the artists he worked with at the time, who would also gain international recognition. Bernstein Meets Broadway: Collaborative Art in a Time of War looks at the early days of Bernstein’s career during World War II, and is centered around the debut in 1944 of the Broadway musical On the Town and the ballet Fancy Free. This excerpt from the book describes the opening night of Fancy Free. When the curtain rose on the first production of Fancy Free, the audience at the old Metropolitan Opera House did not hear a…

    By Howard Rachlin ‘I know these will kill me, I’m just not convinced that this particular one will kill me.’ –Jonathan Miller to Dick Cavett on his lit cigarette, backstage at the 92nd Street Y in New York Jonathan Miller’s problem is actually a practical form of the central problem of ancient Greek philosophy (a problem that continues to haunt philosophy up to the present day): the essential relationship between the abstract and the particular. Miller is right. No particular cigarette can harm a person, either now or later. Only what is essentially an abstraction (the…
  • The Great War letters of an Oxford family

    The First World War has survived as part of our national memory in a way no previous war has ever done. Below is an extract from Full of Hope and Fear: The Great War Letters of an Oxford Family, a collection of letters which lay untouched for almost ninety years. They allow a unique glimpse into the war as experienced by one family at the time, transporting us back to an era which is now slipping tantalizingly out of living memory. The Slaters – the family at the heart of these letters – lived in Oxford, and afford a first-hand account of the war on the Home Front, on the Western…

    Observations on film art

  • MOONRISE KINGDOM: Wes in Wonderland

    20 Jul 2014 | 4:13 am
    DB here: “An auteur is not a brand,” argues Richard Brody. Not always, I’d suggest; but it can happen. And it’s not necessarily a bad thing. Wes Anderson has found a way to make films that project a unique sensibility while also fitting fairly smoothly into the modern American industry. He has his detractors (“I detest these films,” a friend tells me), but there’s no arguing with his distinctiveness.  The Grand Budapest Hotel is perhaps the most vivid example of Andersonian whimsy as signature style. In any case, before summer’s end I want to look at the auteurish aspects of…

    Okoto and Sasuke (1935). DB here: Some final notes on this year’s Cinema Ritrovato. Kristin has more when I’ve finished.   Poland, very wide The First Day of Freedom (1964); production still. Revisiting a couple of the Polish widescreen classics Kristin mentioned earlier, I’d just add that The First Day of Freedom struck me as merging that heaviness often ascribed to Polish cinema with casual shock effects, as much visual as dramatic. It’s not just the opening shot, with the camera descending implacably to reveal layers of activity in a POW camp before settling on barbed…

Writing another entry during the festival itself proved impossible, given our packed schedules, but now we have time to catch our breath and reflect on what we were able to see.

    21 Jul 2014 | 2:55 pm
    The Purge: Anarchy is a one trick pony that uses the same trick as a bunch of other one trick ponies. This sequel takes the premise of last years hit (which was really just a jumping off place for a run-of-the-mill home invasion thriller,) and makes it a whole lot dumber and a lot less thrilling.

    'Begin Again' has a premise that could've easily turned into a fluffy predictable story. Thankfully, the outcome is the opposite. Many scenes bypass instances for usual cliches. There is much more emotional involvement with the characters, most of which comes out in the music. The movie captures the essence of songwriting. The situations that inspire the songs within the film come from an ho... read more

    'Third Person' looks to be a multi-storied ensemble drama that reveals emotional connections between characters through thematic means. That is sort-of true. The connection is not the same as in the director's previous 'Crash'. Here there is more of a 'twist' of realization in the ending, which shows character commonalities without them actually affecting one another. The stories are all stil... read more

In that time, he's been a grim defender, a campy comic, a smiling "put-'er-there-old-chum" mentor, a shadowy vigilante, a dark knight and a box office bonanza.

    The clues to figuring out what you were made to do are closer than you might think. I think about calling, purpose and life's work every day. I don't take breaks. I don't take weekends off. I don't take vacations. It seem a little obsessive, but here's the thing: I do it because I love it! I don't take breaks because this is what I do on my breaks from other things. I haven't always been like this. For a long time I spent most of my days trying to fit into a job that didn't work. It was like getting stuffed into a locker by a bully— except I was the one doing it. It was very painful.

    Dave Taylor
    3 Jul 2014 | 7:46 am
    There’s a clear innocence about the family cinema of previous generations that seems to have been lost in the current crop of movies. In older films, families work together, albeit with some struggles, and children are pleasant and get along pretty well with each other. It’s not all peaches and cream, of course, because there’s some dramatic tension needed to propel the story forward (bad parenting in Mary Poppins, a child who has to recognize that her fill-in parents love her in The Wizard of Oz, and the wave of dysfunctional families in the Disney oeuvre) but still,…

    Through a happy coincidence, a friend invited me over to watch the English-language Korean release of the sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer. The US distribution rights have been purchased by The Weinstein Company and it’s scheduled for a US release on June 27, so this review is of what’s possibly a slightly different version (though industry buzz is that the changes that TWC asked director Bong Joon Ho to make were all rejected). I’m a sucker for apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic movies, as I have written about before, whether the plague is zombies, alien invasions, pandemics or…

And if they’re not terrorists in the sense of Al Qaeda fundamentalists are, then is the difference their motives, their background, or their targets? That’s what Night Moves explores with its indie sensibility and superb – if underutilized – cast. Josh (Jesse Eisenberg) is an ex-Marine who is listlessly traveling through his uneventful life on an organic co-op farm in rural Oregon. His friend Dena (Dakota Fanning) is the…

Phil (Bill Murray) lives through the same day time and again, gradually learning how to maneuver through the inevitable obstacles to achieve the requisite happy ending. Amusing as that film is, however, there’s a depth to the premise that’s ignored. Enter the amazing film Inception. Now, to be fair, Inception isn’t about a temporal glitch as much as it is about dreams within dreams, but there’s still a fascinating and compelling temporal interplay in each of the…

It was every bit as wonderfully bizarre as it sounds – and naturally Will Ferrell is totally up for rebooting it as a movie. Sony Pictures Animation has teamed up with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) to create a hybridized live-action-and-animation update of Manimal.

    PENNING FOR THE MOVIES Some argue that the backbone of movies is the script. After all, it’s the beginning foundation for the long road ahead of turning it into a silver screen picture. Screenplays follow a very distinct and often firmly held format. The iconic courier font, and distinct indentation and spacing style make for a very straightforward read. But why exactly is screenwriting such an important part of the process of film-making? There is a very interesting cyclical process that a film undergoes through its various stages of production. Often, a film begins as a vision within the…

    Review by Bob IgnizioAt one point in the documentary BIRTH OF THE LIVING DEAD, George Romero, director of the seminal 1968 horror film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, makes a point of telling BIRTHdirector Rob Kuhns that he didn't “make” his film by himself. No one makes a movie alone; it's a collaborative effort, and as Romero points out, even this documentary wouldn't be possible without the efforts of its crew. Unfortunately, Kuhns seems to miss the point as none of the other cast and crew members of NIGHT get to relate their stories of making the classic horror flick. Romero does a pretty…

I had the urge to give Braff, who directed the film he co-wrote with his brother, Adam, some advice: Stick with the comedy.The movie, like so many others, starts strongly. Braff, known for his generation-defining GARDEN STATE and his role on Scrubs, draws on personal experience to portray an upper-middle-class Jewish milieu with knowing, sardonic humor.

It was easily one of the laziest, most worthless animated features to ever get a theatrical release. Thankfully, while it's still no classic worthy of the Disney name, PLANES:FIRE AND RESCUE at least makes an effort to tell an original story, and to flesh out its anthropomorphic aviation vehicles into real characters.After having transformed from lowly cropduster to world champion race plane in the previous film, Dusty…

    Disney and Marvel Studios have hit the SDCC Comic-Con ground running – with major changes to the Marvel Comics universe still reverberating – and have shaken things up even further with the addition of another unnamed 2018 release to the five dates already reported leading up to Comic-Con 2014. While these announcements have rattled our own list of the five movies we want Marvel to announce at Comic-Con, one big project in particular remains locked into a July 2015 opening. Ant-Manhas seen its share of shakeups, with the departure of original director Edgar Wright, the hiring…

    After a week of marketing a variety of major changes coming to Marvel Comics, from a new Captain America, a new Thor and a new roster of Avengers, Disney and Marvel Entertainment are now focused on the film side. Marvel Studios, having already set dates for a pair of unannounced 2016-17, took us by surprise on Friday by announcing another five just in time for Comic-Con. But wait, there’s more! With projects now set all the way to May 2019, we had our first clear picture of the schedule of releases for Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, paving the way to The Avengers 3. In…
  • ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Comic-Con 2014 Poster & Hi-Res Images

    23 Jul 2014 | 2:22 pm
    George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road is part reboot, part continuation of the post-apocalyptic sci-fi/action franchise that the filmmaker started in the late 1970s (with Mel Gibson playing Max “The Road Warrior” Rockatansky), and hasn’t released a new installment for in thirty years, come 2015. It wasn’t all clear skies once Fury Road finally began shooting either, but after a longer-than-expected production the film is now well along into post-production – enough so for Warner Bros. to present it at the studio’s San Diego Comic-Con panel this year.

  • Hour of the Wolf Movie Review: DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

    17 Jul 2014 | 6:39 am
    Human Jason Clarke finds relations strained with simian neighbors (l to r) Andy Serkis, Toby Kebbell, and Karin Konoval in DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. This is a trivial question, but it’s been bugging me, so let me get it out, okay? Why is the sequel to RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES called DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES? I mean, “dawn” suggests a beginning, right? And you can’t actually rise until you begin, right? So shouldn’t the titles of these films be reversed? Then again, that first film wasn’t really focused on the planet of the apes beginning, but on the events that…

    At long last, Dossier Fantastique re-opens, offering need-to-know data regarding the latest in horror, fantasy, and science fiction cinema and television. I make my long-awaited return with an Hour of the Wolf review of Snowpiercer, the metaphoric science fiction film from Bong-Joon Ho (The Host). Lawrence French receives The Signal, an indie sci-fi flick. And Steve Biodrowski unearths Dan Curtis’ Dracula from its new Blu-ray casket. Also this week: commentary on Salem and Penny Dreadful; a long overdue obituary for artist H.R. Giger (Alien); and an after-credits discussion of Santo vs.

The story of a famous actor, Chin Siu-Ho (played by actual famous actor Chin Siu-Ho — your heard us), who has to contend with a seedy apartment building whose walls reverberate with echoes of his most famous film, the hopping vampire horror-comedy MR. VAMPIRE — including mysterious spirits, a mystical warrior-cum-resterateur (played by MR. VAMPIRE cast-mate Anthony “Friend” Chan),…

    lizabeth Gracen (left), Lorene Scafaria and Nicholas Brendon are not quite themselves (or are they?) in COHERENCE There’s nothing particularly wrong with employing the time-space continuum for the pure fun of the concept. EDGE OF TOMORROW makes good sport of it, coming up with a pretty keen action film and allowing Tom Cruise to play comedy beats better than he did in KNIGHT AND DAY. But, given the mind-bending possibilities inherent in the genre, it seems almost a crime not delve for deeper meanings than just “craven coward becomes kick-ass action hero.” GROUNDHOG DAY did it. So did…

    The world of dragons is back in all its glory in HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. I’m at the point where I can pretty much take or leave 3D. As a techie, I want to embrace any technology that’ll expand the cinemagoing experience, but even I have to concede that most of the time 3D is employed as little more than an add-on, just a way to charge extra for stuff that’d be the same with or without depth (visual, that is. We’ll save a discussion of dramatic depth for another day). Which is why I’m usually jazzed to check out the latest release from DreamWorks Animation. More often than not,…

  • The Forgotten: "The Argyle Secrets" (1948)

    David Cairns
    22 Jul 2014 | 3:11 pm
    In honor of James Garner I was watching A Man Could Get Killed (1966), an easy-going spy caper which makes decent use of its star's easy-going charm, and noted that director Ronald Neame had swiped, from The 39 Steps, Hitchcock's transition from screaming woman to screaming train whistle, only it wasn't a train whistle in the Neame version (I forget what it was). Still, as Neame had actually worked for Hitchcock, I thought it was an OK little homage. I was surprised to find the same device reprised in the next film I watched, The Argyle Secrets (1948), and this time I was again…

    Screening in all its 3-dimensional glory on August 1st and 2nd in MoMA’s essential summer retro Lady in the Dark: Crime Films from Columbia Pictures, 1932–1957, Man in the Dark was the first 3-D film released by a Hollywood Studio. United Artists' Bwana Devil had been released in November 1952, but it was regarded as an independent production. Warner Brothers was scheduled to have the first major studio release with House of Wax, but Columbia, in their true balls-to-the-wall style, rushed Man in the Dark into production, filmed it in 11 days, and got it up…

    In the summer of 1999 I was a 17-year-old floorboy at a suburban multiplex showing Eyes Wide Shut. There were other movies that caught my attention that summer—Limbo, Election, Summer of Sam, The Blair Witch Project, South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut—but Kubrick’s was the only one of any import. I saw it four times in a week, defended it against my peers’ scorn, and had Jonathan Rosenbaum’s Chicago Reader review practically memorized. For my generation, seeing a Stanley Kubrick film in its original run was a novelty. Sadly, the experience would also be…

Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice is set to premiere there, along with David Fincher's Gone Girl, and Alejandro Iñárritu's bizarre looking Birdman. On David Bordwell's blog, he writes on Wes Anderson, and the current state of authorship in cinema: "Wes Anderson has found a way to make films that project a unique sensibility while also fitting fairly smoothly into the modern American industry.

    Hot Toys has revealed their awesome new Back to the Future 1/6th scale Marty McFly collectible action figure. It's about time they released this! I hope it does well, because it could open the door for figures from films such as The Goonies, Ghostbusters and other classic 1980 films. I need to get myself one of these!“This is heavy doc.” Back to the Future is a pop culture icon and one of the best time-travel films of all time! It remains to be a highly popular movie even decades after the film is first released! Next year marks the 30th anniversary of this classic film and today Hot…

    23 Jul 2014 | 3:30 pm
    Disney has announced that they will be releasing Pirates of the Caribbean 5 in theaters on July 7th, 2017. We previously heard that that the sub-title of this movie is "Dead Men Tell No Tales," but that wasn't confirmed in the press release that was set out. The script for the film comes from Catch Me If You Can scribe Jeff Nathanson, and it's set to be directed by Kon-Tiki's Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg. The fact that those two guys are directing gets me excited for this film. They are a couple of insanely talented directors, and I think they have the…

    6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds. X-Men: Days of Future Past. If you’ve been looking forward to seeing the Sentinels on the big screen—you might have to keep on looking.  Like every other X-Men movie, this one devolves into a predictable showdown with Magneto. Maleficent. Forget about fantasy violence and frightening images, why doesn’t the MPAA warn audiences about gratuitous pixie action? Edge of Tomorrow.  In his latest sci-fi epic, Tom Crusie has the ability to reset time, but since audiences seem to assume this film is Oblivion 2, it’s unlikely Edge of…

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

    6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds! Draft Day.  If Hollywood held a draft, the movie Draft Day probably wouldn’t go until the seventh round.  Still, you might pick it up in a straight trade for a Channing Tatum romance or even a Cuba Gooding, Jr. direct-to-video release. Noah.  What Darren Aronofsky did for ballet in the Black Swan, he now does for the Bible in Noah. He makes it dark, psychological, and a little silly.  As an extra bonus, he throws in fracking, rock people, and a psychopathicNoah. The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Considering the amount of screen time…

    Scientology fiction Hallo folks! The Horror Movie Show is moderately proud to bring you episode #153, hosted as always by Mark & Jerry. This week the boys of summer discuss a handful of movies — mostly new, but one lovely chestnut as well. Tom Cruise‘s summer blockbuster is another science-fiction adventure: Edge of Tomorrow. Sure, the title sounds like a soap opera from the ’60s, but this tale of a guy caught in a temporal loop is a cross between Groundhog Day & Starship Troopers. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received a lukewarm reception on its release. Jerry & Mark…

The show kicks off immediately with a review of Johnny Depp‘s latest science-fiction epic, Transcendence. This story of a scientist who injects his dead self into the World Wide Web is a mishmash of several other SF flicks — the Matrix movies, Brainstorm, The Terminator & many others.

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:14 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal Ephemera A House Divided opens with a funeral on the beach. The otherwise beautiful scenery is made eerie by the dark procession and director William Wyler’s choice to let the scene to play silent except for its downbeat score. Walter Huston stands out among the mourners and along with Kent Douglass, standing out himself by virtue of his youth and Hollywood good looks, leads a group of pallbearers in carrying a casket across the beach. As we recognize nobody else, save perhaps Charles Middleton costumed as a priest, it’s safe…

Subscribers may want to click over to the site because I used larger images than usual and they probably make for an ugly email. You'll find the post here. Costello is presented in a striking series of photos with poses alternating between matronly and distinguished with a few tossed in that might even be called sultry. She is shown reading, sewing, lounging and arranging…

    16 Jul 2014 | 1:26 pm
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraJimmy the Gent (1934) is one of those lightning fast Warner Bros. titles of the 1930s, running just 67 minutes with star James Cagney machine-gunning dialogue at such a pace that it feels like half that time. Headlines of the day provide the basis for this farce that is boosted by a lively supporting cast who ham for maximum laughs. The weakest link in Jimmy the Gent is actually Cagney’s equally well-known leading lady, Bette Davis. Above: Bette Davis and James Cagney You can’t entirely blame Davis as this is another…

    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraWhen it was released in late 1933 The Sin of Nora Moran was unlike anything theatergoers had ever seen. Too unlike for success. The movie came and went, a box office failure that left critics confused. Above: The Sin of Nora Moran star Zita Johann on a 1933 promotional still photo. Considered by some to be an early Hollywood art film, most of what earned The Sin of Nora Moran that tab came of necessity.

If only it were that easy. The usual starting points, IMDb and Wikipedia, were unrewarding in their brevity, and none of the sparse information that was offered raised my eyebrows in the least. But as you might imagine, beyond Cavanagh's inclusion in the casts of the many movies and television shows he appeared in over thirty-plus years beginning in 1928, there isn't a ton of dedicated information…

  • Movie Review: Uncomfortable parallels sour Woody Allen’s frothy Magic In The Moonlight

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Judging from reviews and box-office returns, the consensus seems to be that Woody Allen—the artist, as opposed to the man—has hit a late-career stride. The reality may be less that Allen has returned to form than that he occupies a unique position in the current showbiz food chain. As blockbusters become more homogenized, more focus-grouped, and more sequel-hungry, Allen’s ability to bankroll an annual trifle, and to serve it with professionalism and craft, makes his output seem increasingly like the second coming of Ernst Lubitsch.This year’s offering, Magic In The Moonlight, has a…
  • Movie Review: Luc Besson’s Lucy is pure lunacy

    Who could have guessed that two radically different Scarlett Johansson vehicles—released within months of each other—would both court comparisons to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and that one of them would be a brisk, ludicrous action fantasy directed by French wunderkind-turned-studio-puppetmaster Luc Besson? Lucy stars Johansson as a hard-partying American expat who overdoses on a consciousness-expanding synthetic drug, which grants her complete control over her body and memory, and eventually over matter and time. It opens at the dawn of man and ends with its own version of…
  • Movie Review: A Most Wanted Man is a minor but satisfying sendoff for Philip Seymour Hoffman

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    There’s no way that Philip Seymour Hoffman could have known that his final starring role would be in A Most Wanted Man, Anton Corbijn’s understated new drama about the moral vagaries of preventing terrorism. Even so, the film feels like a suitable swan song—an un-showy showcase for the late actor’s heroic lack of vanity, as well as his ability to locate glimmers of dignity in undignified men. Hoffman’s character, the very last downtrodden type he’ll ever portray, is Günther Bachmann, a disgraced German intelligence agent relocated to Hamburg after a botched assignment. (“As…

    The main thing that distinguishes And So It Goes from any number of recent retirement-age comedies—like Last Vegas or The Big Wedding—is that it happens to be directed by Rob Reiner, a Hollywood veteran with a good grasp of what does and doesn’t work on-screen, especially when it comes to comedy. Knowing a good take from a bad one might not sound like much of a skill set, but, in a genre as dire as this, it goes a long way. In other words, And So It Goes is a mediocre movie, starring two great actors who’ve certainly done worse, that benefits from baseline competence and lowered…

Director David Gordon Green revisits the Southern backwaters of his 2004 gem Undertow to paint a grimly compelling picture of a world in which most folks solve their problems with booze, violence or both. Cage impresses as the unpredictable anti-hero, but it's homeless non-actor Gary Poulter who makes the biggest dramatic impact as the boy's irredeemable father.

    Uncharted, a film based on the Naughty Dog adventure video game, has been on a rough ride for a while now. It was previously going to be directed by David O. Russell (The Fighter). Then it was reported that Neil Burger (Limitless, The Illusionist) was going to direct, but he later dropped off as well. Now Seth Gordon (The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters) is attached to direct, and this time it’s getting closer to reality with the announcement of the release date. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit, Uncharted is set to be released on June 10, 2016. UNCHARTED,…

This in turn has pushed back the release date for The Amazing Spider-Man 3 to 2018. If the Sinister Six movie does in fact star the baddies, that means that we’ll have to wait 4 more years for the next Spidey film. Sony and director Marc Webb (if he’s still back) will have time to improve on the Amazing series, since The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was met with bad reviews.

      You can’t feel confident about something that requires a skill or knowledge you don’t have.       Confidence is attractive, but requires more than flipping a switch.   True confidence requires COMPETENCE.   For example, an Olympic swimmer will be extremely confident in their ability to swim the length of a pool. On the flip side, this same swimmer may have no confidence in performing brain surgery. Let’s apply this to dating…   Do you often feel confused and bewildered by dating?   If so, join the crowd.  Most people receive…
  • The Art of Foreplay – Overview

    23 Jul 2014 | 8:58 am
      The best part of a trip is often the journey to get there.         Foreplay is the primary tool for arousal. For men…it helps them get an erection.  For women…it helps them become lubricated. Once properly aroused…intercourse becomes an easy transition and much less painful (both literally and figuratively).   Most agree that the best sexual encounters include great foreplay.   Unless you both just want a ‘quickie’, there is no such thing as spending too much time on foreplay. Because foreplay covers a wide range of activities,…

In most cases, the stereotype is true.  What men want is simple, and they are quite content if those needs are met. The reality is that… Men’s preference in women is largely based on physical beauty and youth. There is no sense denying or trying to fight it.  These instincts have evolved over thousands of years and become hardwired in men’s brains.  Attempts to change things at this point would be futile.

Then…as things get more intimate…it provides the backbone for foreplay and sex.   If someone doesn’t enjoy kissing you, then there is little chance they will have sex with you.   Unfortunately, few people are ever taught HOW to kiss. Most learn through trial-and-error, which makes it very difficult to improve. (Not many kissing partners…

Deadline reports that the film will be “a collision of crime, action, music and sound”, which sounds like a perfect description of Wright’s gleefully kinetic style. Baby Driver has apparently been in the works since 2008, and while no plot details have ever been revealed, it could be the musical Wright has been hinting at making for some time now. “I've written a script which is kind of like a musical,”…

    18 Apr 2014 | 3:11 am
    All the World’s a Stooge (1941) starring the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine, Curly Howard)All the World’s a Stooge begins with a rich society matron who informs her husband that she’s adopting  refugees — not because she cares, but it’s the current fad.  Her husband, however, is suffering from a horrible toothache, and so he goes to see a dentist, Dr. I. Yankum (played by Nat Pendleton). At the dentist’s office, the Three Stooges are seen in closeup as Moe yells “Pull! Pull!” — which, as the camera pulls back, isn’t…

The DVD includes some very funny short, including the title film “Spook Louder.” “Fright Night” is Shemp’s return to the Three Stooges (having been the ‘third stooge’ for several years in their stage act), and a personal favorite.  Shemp returned to replace his ailing brother Jerome (Curly), and wisely didn’t try to imitate Curly, but to be his own man—and funny in his…

  • #FILM: The Big Deal About Linklater’s 12-Years-In-the-Making Drama, “Boyhood”

    Israel Daramola
    18 Jul 2014 | 8:03 am
    Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Lorelei Linklater and Ethan Hawke in a film by Richard Linklater. The film tells a story of a young boy dealing with a fractured family and the angst of adolescence over the course of twelve years, from age 6 to age 18. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” is sweeping and sporadic, jumping from year to year sometimes in a blur; much like the act of growing up itself. “Boyhood” tells the story of the evolution of Mason, Jr (Ellar Coltrane) over a 12 year period, starting from age 6 and going on until he hits 18. The film was shot over a 12…

    Whenever the likeness of someone important in pop culture history is being portrayed in film, there is always a certain amount of controversy in regard to who will be able to fill the large shoes in question. Recently, this topic has gotten a lot of attention due to the issues involved in casting Zendaya Coleman to fill the role of Aaliyah in the film “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B“ and Zoe Saldana to portray Nina Simone in the much delayed biopic “Nina,” depicting the late songstress’s rise to fame. Although it’s nothing new for actors to portray…

  • Life Itself

    23 Jul 2014 | 9:00 pm
    There is no doubt that Roger Ebert, one of the most prolific and well-known movie reviewers in American history, would have a film produced to pay tribute to his career at some time. By the end of his career, Ebert had covered the film industry for nearly half of cinema’s lifespan, popularized a specific hand-gesture beyond its normal capability, and invited the world to see his late-life health problems. Life Itself, based off Ebert’s own memoir, captures not only the critic’s frank explanations of his life, but also his devastating health condition.
  • Snowpiercer

    17 Jul 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Director Bong Joon-ho turns conventional themes of predestination and socio-economic disparity on their side. Where many political films express economic dichotomy vertically as a bottom to top comparison--think Metropolis or last year’s Elysium-- Snowpiercer portrays this horizontally as a group of rebels push forward from the tail to the engine.

    They Came Together breaks down the clichés and tropes of conventional romantic comedies, specifically from Woody Allen and films featuring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Director and co-writer David Wain returns to his zany and semiotic ways with his Wain-world cast and partners, as well as many SNL alumni and contemporary talents for a refreshing pastiche on the predictable rom-com.
  • Tim's Vermeer

    7 Jul 2014 | 2:00 am
    The recent television series Cosmos tells stories of how scientists, or at least people who we perceive as working with the scientific method, discovered complex concepts that were either forgotten by time, or overshadowed by how much they pushed forward our understanding of science. Johannes Vermeer may have been one of those people, as the method to produce his photorealist paintings in the 1600s has never been replicated.

  • Snowpiercer – a Never-Ending Ride

    Chris D'souza
    4 Jul 2014 | 11:50 am
    Snowpiercer offers e a vision that is both bizarre and grounded at the same time. The brutality mostly exudes from its setting within a locomotive that circles a post-apocalyptic globe. It portrays the sociopolitical implications that come with humanity’s last hope for survival. To understand why it is a movie worth watching, read on. You will instantly grasp the essence of the story, as the lower classes battle their way through the different classist societies that exist within the train itself. The attempt at combating global warming backfires horribly. The surviving humans are…
  • Obvious Child – the Comedic Journey of a Mother to Be

    Chris D'souza
    2 Jul 2014 | 10:37 am
    Obvious Child is perhaps the most eccentric movie to hit the box office this year. Women-driven films are a rarity which is what makes this film interesting even before coming to its quality as a comedy. The focus here is on Donna, played by Jenny Slate. Slate plays a humorist in the film and she uses parts of her own life in her act. In fact, the film opens with Donna performing her act. It is clear that she is ad-libbing the entire thing yet she manages to stay composed even when she misses a beat. You can see the audience actually enjoying the show put on by Slate in what may be her finest…

    30 Jun 2014 | 11:11 am
    Borgman is a rather unique story. It deserves credit for being original and innovative. A homeless man with long hair and a huge beard, weird enough to look extremely dangerous, shows up at the door of an upper-class household and rings the bell asking the man of the house if he can take a bath. On the man’s refusal, he starts insisting and immediately starts making odd statements about the man’s wife. Borgman doesn’t seem innocent. There is clearly something evil about him. The Dutch thriller is intense, containing a paranormal element. Whenever the director wants to make…

    Chris D'souza
    27 Jun 2014 | 11:02 am
    The Rover is one of the grittiest and bleakest films to have graced the screens after a very long time. The movie targets a different audience who can relate to the events that may come to be if things continue on their course of action. The story begins with the opening titles informing the audience that the movie continues ten years after the ‘collapse’. However, initially you are unaware of the events and how things have become so gruesome. The Australian Outback has been used as the setting for the film; it is refreshing considering that filmmakers were less concerned about…

    Real-life stories have been the basis for many an intriguing movie over the year and Devil’s Knot is the latest addition to the genre. The docudrama recreates the story of the West Memphis Three, chronicling the infamous 1993 murder case. The movie is adapted from the 2002 book of the same name. The movie opens with scene of three young boys found dead near a river by the locals. At first, the town associates the heinous act with worshipers of satanic forces but things get enigmatic as the police start investigating the gruesome murders.

  • Howl's Moving Castle (2004) - Review

    Bobby Brake
    5 Jul 2014 | 10:01 am
    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…

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) - Review

    Bobby Brake
    12 Jun 2014 | 10:37 am
    The X-Men franchise has had a hell of a bunch of ups and downs.  The first two installments hold up pretty well and are still entertaining, if slightly dated.  The third film was never good and certainly isn't now.  After that, the series got weird and started going in a bunch of different directions, with varying results.  X-Men Origins: Wolverine was hilariously bad, X-Men First Class was also pretty lackluster (suffering from a lot of the same goofiness that Origins did), but the followup sequel to Origins, simply titled The Wolverine, was a marked improvement.  So…

    I don't like the original Sleeping Beauty.  It's technically a "classic" I guess, but I don't enjoy it at all, much like a lot of supposed classic Disney films like Dumbo and Pinocchio.  Those movies are freaking terrifying!  I mean seriously, elephants on parade?  Donkey slaves?  Yeah, that won't scar kids for life or anything.But I digress.I find Sleeping Beauty to be a bit too simplistic;  evil queen + young princess + curse + charming prince = cliche.  Even back then these things were already common tropes from traditional fairy tales.  On…

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

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

  • 127 Videodrome

    6 Jul 2014 | 4:24 pm
    This week we review David Cronenberg's 1983 classic Videodrome. If brain tumors were doled out to those who've casually watched tasteless sex and violence, we'd all be dead in the internet age. But back in 1983, when VHS acted as a sole source for content delivery of our collective perversions, Videodrome was perhaps more prescient and horrifying. Thirty years later, calloused to reality television and on-line video "obscenity" where everyone lives "online", Videodrome's blurred reality is more the norm than the exception. Enjoy a little Crononberg body-horror and long live the new…
  • 126 Fast Times at Ridgemont High

    30 Jun 2014 | 8:12 am
    Could this movie get made today? If you're the strangely prudish Russ Meyer devotee, Roger Ebert, the answer would be "let this movie never get made!" As time travelers from the hyper-sensitive P.C. present, Matt and Mark disagree. Stacy's coming of age experiences with underage sex, reproductive mistakes, and poor judgement isn't necessarily the exception, but perhaps more the norm than uptight middle-aged white guy America likes to think. In the past, Jennifer Jason Liegh's Stacy probably would have been burned at the stake, but in early 80's American, she's just slut shamed by…

    Just when you think you're out, they pull you back in! This week Matt and Mark review Sexy Beast starring a surprisingly menacing Ben Kingsley as the titular character. While Sexy Beast could easily be a straight up British heist film, it chooses to be something more. Which is strange considering its 85 minute run time. Kingsley's Don Logan is a sociopath with a single-mindedness that may be perfect for crime, but is cancerous when it comes to matters of the heart. Sexy Beast is well filmed and visually amazing, and one can only wonder if Donnie Darko's Frank the bunny was inspired by Sexy…

    18 Jul 2014 | 2:33 pm
    The Dog directed by Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren follows the infamous John Wojtowicz, self-nicknamed the Dog who was the real life inspiration for the film Dog Day Afternoon starring Al Pacino. To recap the story, John robbed a Brooklyn bank one steamy day in August of 1972 in order to pay for his lover’s sex-change operation. The whole ordeal lasted throughout the day and night, received national attention and arguably cast a grim cloud over the gay rights movement which was in its early development.

No disrespect to Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1998), Batman Beyond (1999-2001), or any of the other DC super hero toons that came before, which are all fine in their own right, but, for me, Justice League Unlimited (2004-2006) is DC’s pinnacle of excellence in their history of TV toons and the last word on anything related to the Justice League, thus making Justice League (2001-2004) their second best super hero team toon.

    Third Person written and directed by Paul Haggis (Crash) tells several interlocking stories (just like Crash) connected by theme, and similar back-stories with a tone of sincere emotion (just. like. Crash). These stories are implied to be spawned from the mind of a once Pullitzer prize winning writer, Michael (Liam Neeson), who, now on his sixth or seventh novel, has lost that spark of full self-exposition his first book had, and sits in a Paris hotel trudging through his latest literary efforts.

     I was born in ’69, coming into this world at the tail end of Dan Curtis’ Dark Shadows (1966-1971) series, but fear not Curtis still managed to remain in my life through out most of my childhood. And I don’t ever remember Dark Shadows being re-run during that time either; if it was I never knew it. As with most memories from those formative years despite having them they’re sometimes out of order, so for the sake of argument let’s say my first run in with Mr. Curtis was through his 1973 TV movie The Night Stalker.

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

    Sam Gatlin (Jack Webb) is the managing editor of an L.A. newspaper’s morning edition. We follow him and his staff through their nine hour evening shift as they put together the morning’s paper. -30- (1959) is more of a slice of life tale than a plot-driven movie and there are various story threads throughout. The major ones include Sam Gatlin’s marriage to Peggy (Whitney Blake), the breaking news story of a young girl trapped in an L.A. sewer, a death in the family and the in-house bet to predict the gender of an Italian movie star’s unborn child. This film was written by…

Why do film lovers have such a love-hate relationship with this film genre?Richard Barrios: It’s been that way since the dawn of the movie musical, back in the late 1920s, and it’s still that way. There are lots of reasons, of course, and one large one has to do with the connection of songs with script—for some people, those…

  • I’ll Follow You Down (2013, Richie Mehta)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    22 Jul 2014 | 9:08 pm
    There are a handful of easily fixable problems with I’ll Follow You Down. Director Mehta shoots it in Panavision aspect ratio and doesn’t know what to do with all the width. Combined with Tico Poulakakis’s lens flare happy cinematography, Follow looks like a glossy television commercial. There’s never a sense of time or place, which is a big problem considering it’s about time and place. Mehta isn’t great with directing actors either, but most of the cast can work through it. Gillian Anderson, for example, gives a breathtaking small performance. Mehta gives…

    Andrew Wickliffe
    20 Jul 2014 | 10:22 pm
    While The Great Escape runs nearly three hours, director Sturges and screenwriters James Clavell and W.R. Burnett never let it feel too long. Part of the quick pace comes from the first half hour being told in something like real time and another big part of it is the aftermath of the escape taking up the last hour. So for ninety minutes, the audience is getting to know and like the characters. It gives the escape aftermath a breakneck pace, even though Sturges doesn't do much different. The Elmer Bernstein score also plays a large part. It's frequently upbeat and congratulatory to…
  • The Getaway (1972, Sam Peckinpah)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    19 Jul 2014 | 10:49 pm
    From the lengthy opening credits to the big action finale, it's always clear sound is important in The Getaway. Editor Robert L. Wolfe does some wonderful transitions with sound foreshadowing the cut and the next scene, but there's something more to it. That something more is the isolation theme running through the film–Steve McQueen starts in prison, surrounded by these loud, garish, yet hollow sounds. The action finale, at a nearly deserted hotel, also has loud, hollow sounds. They amplify Peckinpah's composition–particularly for the finish–and reinforce the…

    18 Jul 2014 | 9:58 pm
    There's definitely a good movie somewhere in Jaws 2; maybe just one without so much shark. Sadly, most of its narrative problems seem obvious to fix. For example, if the shark isn't confirmed and Roy Scheider might just be suffering post-traumatic stress… maybe they didn't want to go dark. Instead, the filmmakers go bright, shiny and stupid. Director Szwarc doesn't do particularly well with his actors–for some reason Scheider is frequently staring into the camera and past whoever he's sharing the scene with–but most of his composition is fantastic.

    I wonder what At War with the Army would be like if it were funny. I also wonder what it would be like if director Walker could figure out how to open up a scene. Sure, the whole thing is shot on limited exteriors and then the same interiors–it takes place on an army base–but Walker just goes through the same shots over and over again. Worse, there are musical numbers and Walker is even more inept at their staging. The first one, in the mess hall, is a no brainer but Walker flops with it. Paul Weatherwax's editing is solid and it hints at how the scene could have been a whole…

  • Detroit: The Bankruptcy of a Symbol

    17 Jul 2014 | 2:36 pm
    Detroit was once a symbol and a capital: a symbol of the American Dream, and the capital of the car industry. Ford, Chrysler and General Motors drew the key lines of a city which was devoted to them. Yet, in half a century, it has declined from a capital to a ghost town. On July 18, 2013 the Government of Detroit, with up to $20 billion in debt, files for the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. This is the story of Detroit and those who are valiantly trying to bring it back to life.

    I started to think about the way that accents are portrayed in films after seeing the film Locke (2014) at the cinema quite recently. Locke features Tom Hardy as the main character Ivan Locke who sets on a journey when the mother of his baby goes into labour. It's an interesting concept, original- the entire film taking place on a car journey. What got me thinking was Tom Hardy's choice of accent, Welsh. The accent started off as quite distracting, as I, as an audience member, couldn't quite associate the accent with the actor. Which then got me thinking about actors who have got an ear for…

    Filmed at yearly intervals over a 12 year period, Linklater's film follows Mason (Ellar Coltrane) from age seven through 19, watching him grow and evolve over time from a quiet child of divorce to a smart, sensitive young man on the cusp of adulthood. We also see how his family matures over the years, with older sister Samantha (Lorelei Linkater) developing from a precocious nine-year-old kid to a wry, intelligent 20-year-old; mother Olivia (Patricia Arquette) struggling with a series of failed relationships but finding her passion teaching at the local college; and father Mason Sr. (Ethan…

    Mark Ruffalo stars as Dan, a down-on-his-luck record executive who hasn't signed a new act in years and is on the brink of being fired from the company he started with his best friend Saul (Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def). His home life is also a mess; following the break-up of his marriage, he barely sees his daughter Violet (Hailee Steinfeld) and when he does, she's hardly enamoured to be spending time with him. Just when it seems Dan's hit rock bottom, he drunkenly stumbles across a musician in a bar who just might be his ticket back to the big time. The musician is Gretta (Keira Knightley), an…

    There's no need to be worried. Reeves' film takes the ball and runs with it, with the Cloverfield and Let Me In man proving a more capable action helmer than his predecessor without losing sight of the layered characters and smart storytelling that made Rise such a pleasant surprise. Dawn picks up ten years after the events of Rise, with the human race almost wiped out by the man-made 'simian flu' and the apes, led by Caesar (Andy Serkis), are thriving in the forests outside of San Francisco. They have built their own society and communicate via a sophisticated mix of sign language and…
  • EIFF 2014: Joe Review

    Another man who spends far too much time in films that are frankly beneath him, Nicolas Cage stars as the titular Joe, an ex-convict with a dark past, trying to keep a lid on his inner rage and stay on the straight and narrow. His job – poisoning weak, good-for-nothing trees to allow new, stronger ones to grow in their place – provides a heavy metaphor for the rest of the film. Joe is approached by a teenager named Gary (Tye Sheridan) who's new to the town and looking for work. Gary's an earnest and hard working kid trying to look out for his ailing mother and mute sister in the face of…

No longer dependent on the vain smolder of his unreasonably popular 90s output, the battle-tested pro has settled into a groove playing elderly scoundrels. And So It Goes offers him another opportunity, this time with Oren Little, widowed misanthrope. Oren falls for lounge singing sweetheart Leah (Diane Keaton), but his abrasive personality and a mind-numbing series of contrivances stand in the way of true…

In Rise of the Planet of the Apes, in case you’ve forgotten, saw James Franco, in the attempt to halt his father’s Alzheimer’s, invent a virus that made primates super smart. And, in a quiet side plot, kill humans within days. Ten years after the showdown on the Golden Gate Bridge, the apes of San Francisco have developed into a functioning society, complete with schools and doctors, and led by their revolutionary leader, Caesar…
  • What to watch when you sensibly avoid watching Goddess

    Janina Matthewson
    10 Jul 2014 | 4:50 am
    The movie musical has not been doing itself any favours, recently. Les Mis got us way to up close and personal to Eddie Redmayne’s larynx, Mamma Mia made us listen to Pearce Brosnan sing, and someone decided to remake Annie. You’d be forgiven for thinking musicals are just bad, and plenty of people do. Goddess is not going to help this conception. Fortunately, I know loads of films that will, so this review will be alleviated by suggestions for a musical education. Based on a one woman show, Goddess tells the story of Elspeth Dickens (Laura Michelle Kelly), a London girl living in a…
  • No frills film? Or a 3D, widescreen, snacks-a-plenty cinema experience?

    20 Jun 2014 | 9:35 am
    “We’re going to miss it,” a smaller and less less frizzy-haired me whinged at (what I saw as) my bumbling, sloth-like family.  Call me Henry Hassle, but after a week of learning my ABC’s and 123′s, I was living for the weekend! It was time for Saturday Morning Pictures. Oh yes.  This was what cinema was all about for my generation.  A snack-pack on arrival, a pre-film entertainer (balloon animals were my thing) and the latest Disney creation; who needed the summer holidays?  Saturday morning was what it was all about and it came but once a week. As I sat there with my inflated…

  • John Boyega Wants to Play Black Panther for Marvel

    Shawn S. Lealos
    23 Jul 2014 | 9:56 pm
    John Boyega seems to see his star rising higher and higher at the moment in Hollywood. After breaking out with a critically acclaimed role in Attack the Block, he now finds himself preparing to star in Star Wars: Episode VII in a role that is heavily rumored to see him as the actual star of the new trilogy. As if that isn’t enough, Boyega is now hinting that he might want to head to Marvel as well. It all came about on his Twitter account when he told his followers that he was aiming for a Marvel role and then added “Currently booking flight to Wakanda.” Of course, this could just be…
  • Gotham TV Show Announces New Characters

    Shawn S. Lealos
    23 Jul 2014 | 9:29 pm
    The Gotham TV show just keeps getting better and better. There were two different news briefs this week about the upcoming Batman prequel television series, the first involving The Joker and the second involving two characters added to the mix. Let’s start off with The Joker. Now, I predicted a while back that Gotham wouldn’t show the origin of The Joker, because part of his mystique is not knowing who he is or where he came from (outside of Tim Burton’s movie). However, I thought it would be pretty great to have a number of different people who could be The Joker eventually. It sounds…
  • Josh Brolin Filmed Performance Capture for Thanos

    Shawn S. Lealos
    23 Jul 2014 | 8:49 pm
    The news that Josh Brolin was a late cast addition as Thanos in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie made it sound like he was coming in to voice over the villain. It turns out that isn’t the fact. In an interview with Collider, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige said that Josh Brolin came in and did performance capture work as well. This is awesome news and proves that Marvel cares a lot more about making the characters look real than some other franchises. Feige said that Brolin was an easy sell and was happy to join the Marvel team. He came in, shot his performance capture work, recorded…
  • Vin Diesel Says xXx 3 Will Start Filming Soon

    Shawn S. Lealos

    The first xXx movie was dumb fun, with Vin Diesel starring as extreme sports athlete Xander Cage convinced to work for the National Security Agency as a spy. There was a sequel, but Diesel didn’t return and Ice Cube replaced him in a movie that was nowhere near as fun as the first. Well, it looks like Diesel will return to the third installment and Diesel told Collider that it will be shooting in the Philippines. The news comes as Diesel is out helping to promote Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, while also preparing for the press that will accompany his next effort in the Fast &…

    Amber Heard as ViviIn the last few years Kevin Costner's career was in a pickle. Costner disappeared from the mainstream movie scenery for a long time, doing small and unimportant films in the last decade. The middle aged actor struggled to find roles that fitted his age, until last year (appearing in Man of Steel 2013). in 3 Days to Kill we saw the glorified actor finally find a character that fitted him like a glove. In 3 Days to Kill Costner is a middle aged CIA agent who is diagnosed with cancer. After the deadly decease strikes at the most inappropriate time and causes Costner's…

    300 Rise of an Empire was one of the most anticipated movies of the year the question was whether it will deliver the same success as the original film brought in 2006 on the screen and in the box office.300 - Dilios  Whoever liked the original 300 came for the special affects ignoring most of the other elements in the film. 300 the sequel / prequel or however Zack Snyder defined this rise of an empire film stuck to the same successive formula that defined the original 300. It focused on the special affects, a lot of green screen scenes, breath taking fight sequences, countless slow…

    Let's admit it nobody expected Pompeii to be a remember-able film, most people didn't even take the film too seriously from the beginning. So when the poor thing finally came out it had no other option than to hold to the lowest expectations.VolcanoLike most movies of the style what made me want to see it despite its obvious flaws is:Kit Harington (Jon Snow) he is on Game of Thrones so I had to watch the filmEverything that has to do with Roman History is a must, what can I say, I’m a freak of the genre.Now when we covered the reasons which made me watch Pompeii, let’s see how bad was it,…

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:59 am
    The first film works due to its charismatic protagonists and the reality TV aspect, which makes for an interesting spin on the found footage concept. All of that is lost in Grave Encounters 2. This time, the main character is an arrogant jerk a student film director who, after watching Grave Encounters, is adamant that the film is real. By thoroughly interviewing the crew, their family and finally the film's producers, he learns that the deaths in Grave Encounters were, in fact, real. Grave Encounters 2 stretches suspension of disbelief to near impossible lengths as, although the protagonists…

    Director: Matt Reeves (Cloverfield)Starring: Jason Clarke, Andy Serkis, Gary Oldman, Tony Kebbell, Keri RussellCertificate: 12ARun-time: 130 minutesIN SHORT: Thoughtful, allegorical writing and a visceral exploration of conflict, elevates Dawn of the Planet of the Apes far beyond the average popcorn blockbuster.Ten years after the events of Rise, humanity is facing near extinction as a Simian virus reduces cities to rubble. Caesar and his family of escaped apes are thriving though; untarnished by humans, they've forged a home in the dense forest. However, Caesar's peaceful community is…

    Pretty much all of the posters I've featured as Poster of the Week have been typography-focused and loud. However the brooding teaser for Brad Pitt's winter release, Fury, is simply a fine example of a gorgeous, clean shot. This poster flouts conventional graphic design rules with its vast empty spaces and off-centre framing of Pitt, yet it masterfully evokes a sense of mood. I also love the creative placement of the title, sloppily painted on, partially hidden by Pitt's arm.The film itself is equally exciting. An original script from director David Ayer (End of Watch, Harsh Times), Fury…
  • [INDIE MATTERS #9] - The Stag

    Ben Hayward
    14 Jul 2014 | 9:07 am
    Director: John ButlerStarring: Andrew Scott, Hugh O'Conor, Peter McDonaldCertificate: 15Run-time: 94 minutesIN ORDER: Despite its tired 'lads in the wild' plot, The Stag proves to be good craic.There's a certain charm to Irish cinema that allows them to indulge in formula and convention and yet, still get away with it. Maybe its the heavy accents or perhaps the beautiful rural backdrops where these well-worn narratives take place. Entertaining Irish indies like Grabbers and The Guard have embodied this style of predictable, but hilariously so, film-making and The Stag maintains this trend.

    Director: John Carney (Once)Starring: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld, Adam Levine, James CordenRun-time: 104 minutesCertificate: 15IN SHORT: Just like the twinkly guitar melodies that make up the soundtrack, Begin Again is light and pleasant but not entirely memorable. From Irish indie film-maker, John Carney, comes Begin Again; a larger, much prettier reworking of his earlier musical success Once. Begin Again throws together two lonely musical souls; Greta (Knightley), a singer-songwriter who has been left behind by her ex-boyfriend (Levine) in his quest for stardom and Dan…

  • Mission: Impossible

    Alex Chafey
    20 Jul 2014 | 4:11 am
    Tom Cruise is here doing what he does best: running around beating up bad guys. The troubled megastar plays a troubled secret ops bloke, Ethan Hunt, whose team gets wiped out by a job which turned out to be a trap. He has to get to the bottom of things, but who can he trust, and who is trying to frame him? Mission: Impossible is riddled with spy movie clichés from start to finish, from self destructing tapes to entering a room on wires through the roof, via lasers and an on top of a train action sequence. But with the iconic music, anything less would feel inadequate. Like most big budget…
  • Gone With the Wind

    18 Jul 2014 | 3:47 pm
    The US Civil War era epic follows a young girl called Scarlett (Vivien Leigh), the daughter of wealthy plantation owners in the Old South. It opens with her and her companions pining after the local men in scenes which bear some resemblance to a Much Ado About Nothing style romantic drama, but when the war breaks out the men are sent away, forcing the women to face the end of their way of life. As defeat looms for the South, the war threatens to defeat the survivors in every possible way. During the film’s opening minutes I was filled with dread. Posh people fussing over who fancies…
  • In the Line of Fire

    Alex Chafey
    18 Jul 2014 | 3:42 pm
    In The Line of Fire was made in 1993 but for some reason looks like it was made in the 70s. It’s about a secret service agent called Frank (Clint Eastwood) who’s singled out by a psychopath who plans to kill the new president. The killer taunts Frank with memories of his past, when he failed to prevent Kennedy’s assassination. It’s akin in many ways to other cat and mouse films which involve a personal relationship developing between cop and killer, such as Catch Me If You Can, Hannibal, and Heat. It’s also quite similar to Vertigo, with an ageing cop facing his demons,…
  • X Men Origins: Wolverine

    Alex Chafey
    17 Jul 2014 | 11:23 am
    The “X Men Origins” prefix looks a little silly now it’s not been followed up with any other characters’ backstories, which is ironically the fault of this film and its dismal reputation. But while it’s certainly no masterpiece, Wolverine’s origin story gets a lot right, and is not worthy of its fanboy-driven derision.  In-keeping with the original X Men trilogy, our supporting characters are rubbish here. But while those films at least had Xavier, Magneto and Wolverine to cling to, now we’re down to just one. After a very hasty flick through…

    15 Jul 2014 | 3:40 pm
    With Transformers: Age of Extinction dominating the box office it could be easy to despair for the modern blockbuster. A spate of big movies that also made you think – the likes of Inception, Looper and District 9 – seems to have slowed in favour of Marvel sequels and dodgy remakes. Then, from the mist, comes an ape riding on a horse, to save the summer, as Rise did in 2011. In this, the second part of the “of the…of the” franchise, we pick up a few years after we left off with Caesar (Andy Serkis) and the apes living in a well-established society  in the woods…

Charlize Theron has signed on to play Imperartor Furiosa and filming has been taken place in Nambia.

    This is not the Planet of the Apes of your childhood. I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of the Planet of the Apes movies. I just don’t get the premise. I mean, if the apes have evolved into talking and thinking, shouldn’t they have eventually just evolved into being humans? But I decided to set my skepticism aside and instead, focus on being entertained. After all, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is both a box office and critical success, so there has to be something there right? Dawn picks up where the last movie left off, with Ceaser leading a growing band of genetically…
  • Watch Teaser Trailer and See Movie Poster release for Daniel Radcliffe’s ‘Horns’.

    15 Jul 2014 | 9:53 pm
    While I’m not totally in love with the name of this film, the teaser trailer does a good job of pulling you in and making you forget the lack of creativity in the title. To be fair, it’s the same title as the book by Joe Hill the movie is based on. The film has been completed for a while, debuting last fall in Toronto and to be played again at Comic Con in San Diego this week. Radcliffe is playing the role of Ig, who wakes up from a drinking binge to find out he not only has horns growing out of the top of his head, but that his girlfriend has been raped and killed and he’s the leading…

  • Chuck Palahniuk Reveals Details Surrounding “Fight Club 2”

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:15 am
    While it is not the movie sequel we were hoping for, it is good news for fans of the original novel and the world of Fight Club overall. “Fight Club 2” will be presented in a graphic novel format courtesy of Dark Horse Comics. The new graphic novel will be set 10 years after the events of the first book, with its unnamed protagonist now married to Maria Singer and father to a nine-year-old son. The original novel reflected on the social and sexual anxieties of modern youth, the sequel is a reflection on middle age’s own frustrations. The first novel by Chuck Palahniuk, and the movie…
  • Amazon Launches Its Own Wallet Service

    22 Jul 2014 | 7:45 am
    Amazon has entered into yet another market arena, this time with the launch of its wallet service called Amazon Wallet. The new service will be competing against other similar services, namely PayPal and Google Wallet. The new service is not currently any new offerings to entice potential users over to the new platform. Amazon Wallet will allow users to store selected gift cards and will store your credit card information. The website already does this, so it does not really warrant the move at this point in time. The new Amazon Fire phone will use the device as a marketing practice by…
  • Seven Remakes Better Than the Original (or at least as good)

    Gareth Hill
    22 Jul 2014 | 5:41 am
    1. The Fly (1958 & 1986) Released towards the end of the decade, the original movie was part of an undercurrent of sci-fi / horror films that tapped into the fears of the age. A brilliant scientist’s experiments with teleportation take a turn for the unpleasant when his DNA gets all mixed up with that of a fly. Playing on the paranoia and nuclear heebie-jeebies that underpinned the decade, Kurt Neuman’s classic mutation movie has a nightmarish tragedy as we watch the descent and literal dehumanising of the lead towards an inevitable, melancholic finale. In re-making the film, director…

    Brooks Wheelan has been fired from “Saturday Night Live” after just one season, and so follows other stars like Larry David and Ben Stiller who were also fired after one season. Larry David was curbed after a single-season writing at 30 Rock, as was Stiller, who went on to have a somewhat successful movie career. Robert Downy Jr. also didn’t fit in too well as was let go after season 12. Wheelan has tweeted, saying he had a blast while on the show, and plans to move onto the next big thing in life. He joked he was preparing for the Iron Man Reboot in 2021 and the Chaplin reboot in 2032.

  • ‘Sinister 2′ release date set for next summer

    23 Jul 2014 | 8:53 pm
    Scott Derrickson‘s terrifying horror movie, Sinister, from a few years ago is getting a sequel and it releases next summer. Unfortunately, Derrickson is not returning to direct the sequel due to his previous involvement with Doctor Strange for Marvel, but is co-writing the script with C. Robert Cargill. Sinister 2 is being directed by Ciaran Foy and releases on August 21, 2015. Blumhouse films are typically very low budget, but always great quality films. They’ve made Sinister, The Purge, and Insidious, so I’m excited to see what they come up with for Sinister 2. These low…
  • Marvel announces another 2018 release date; Three Marvel movies in 2018 now

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:44 pm
    Marvel recently announced five release dates for future Marvel movies–two a year–which will be filled by one sequel and one new character each year. Well, now they’ve added a third release date for 2018. That’s three Marvel movies in one year! Previously the only May release date was to be in 2019, which led us to believe that The Avengers 3 wouldn’t be releasing until then, but now the third 2018 release is set for May 4, 2018. Perhaps Marvel is sticking to their three-year-per-phase plan. If this release is meant to be for The Avengers 3, what will we see in…

  • Halloween: 35 Years of Terror

    Adrian Brennan
    28 Jun 2014 | 9:11 am
    It has been 35 years since The Night He Came Home. John Carpenter’s independent masterpiece turned 35 recently, so I thought it would be a good idea to go back and take a look at one of the greatest horror films ever made. And looking back on it now, you’d never think it was 35 years old, as it absolutely stands the test of time, and is arguably better than some of the horror films released today.Telling the story of Michael Myers, who, at the age of 6 brutally murders his teenage sister after she sleeps with her boyfriend (this is where that horror trope comes from!) Years later,…

    From being the star kid, you're slowly becoming one of the most bankable actors in Bollywood. How has the experience been so far? Alia: This is something I've wanted to do ever since I was a child. It wasn't because my parents were actors. It has always been in me to want to be an actor. You can call it genes cause my father's father was a filmmaker, father's mother was an actor, my dad is a director, my mother and sister are both actors, so it does run in the family but I also work towards it a lot. I make sure the choices I make are different and at the same time entertaining and…

    27 Jun 2014 | 1:52 pm
    Ek Villain sticks out like a sore thumb of all the films I've seen so far this year. The contrived thriller is predictable from the word go. Mohit Suri spends two hours taking you back and forth, in a scarcely gratifying execution. I sat there amazed at the idiocy of the plot. What a waste of actors in a story that's lame, and sometimes unintentionally hilarious. The 70ish dialoguebaazi is cliched and tediously repellent; characters that make even some of those in television soaps look good (like our mafia don Remo Fernandes). What was the director smoking? Shraddha Kapoor is a…

Not only were we gifted with another still from the movie (see above), but the first official poster for the film has also been released.

Whether or not the runaway success of The Wolf of Wall Street has stalled things up until this point is hard to tell.

    Andrew Kotwicki breaks down the whole history of Dead Space in this brand new article.The Dead Spaceseries has earned a unique place in the science fiction horror genre of video gaming.  With its eerie television commercial of a disembodied voice singing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” set against a severed hand floating in space beside a derelict spacecraft, Dead Space announced itself as a sincere throwback to the claustrophobic space horrors imagined by Ridley Scott and John Carpenter. With any brilliant idea for a series, time and tide can shift one’s expectations and…

    Arnold said he'd be back. And he is."Call me Jurgen Prochnow againand I will crush your girly face."Just when you think Arnold Schwarzenegger's desire to rekindle the '80s action film couldn't get any worse, you end up getting Sabotage; a film so bad it wastes an epic cast on a predictably abysmal plot and bores audiences with routine action sequences based on flawed and unrelentingly awful camera work. Honestly though, when you have Olivia Williams, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, and Harold Perrineau but can't draw one line of believable dialogue from any of…

    In memory of James Garner, my continuing series on Criminally Neglected films takes a look at one of his forgotten gems: Murphy’s Romance, which is currently out of print."Save a horse. Ride all of US!"Not many people under 30 have heard of Murphy’s Romance, and that is a shame. It's arguably one of the ten best love stories of all time. It's not spectacular in scale, not bogged down with style, and not given to flights of fancy that instigate Oscar-bait monologues. Murphy's Romanceis simply... simple, realistic, loving of its characters, and with a sense of time and place so authentic…

    Could it be true? Dwayne Johnson as Shazam?Dwayne Johnson all but confirmed he's playing Shazam. He could have been several DC heroes when he mentioned that this character is as powerful as Superman. The first two answers I came up with were Shazam and Martian Manhunter.But then...He said, "Just say the word." If that isn't the almighty word, "Shazam!," I don't know what is. In the same interview, he pretty much canned the idea that he'd be playing John Stewart despite his love for the character. He expressed the work he and DC have been doing over the last couple of years to fit him into the…

    A handful of new posters for ya today, fans of movie posters. Up first, here’s the Comic Con poster for Colin Trevorrow’s “Jurassic World,” due in 2015. I’m guessing rampaging dinosaurs will be involved in this one. Former “Harry Potter’s” Daniel Radcliffe is still a little horny in a new poster for “Horns,” which is apparently about a guy with horns. Or is really horny. One of those two. Like most of Radcliffe’s movies these days, this might end up on VOD. Meanwhile, look, it’s the boys of “Teenage Mutant Ninja…

Well, Halloween-ish. The film stars Annabelle Wallis. No, really. There isn’t a lot on the film’s plot, but expect a lot of crazy doll moments and crazy people doing crazy stuff. It looks like a moderately budgeted sequel, which isn’t a surprise since these films are designed to snag high returns on investments.

  • The Purge 2: Anarchy (2014) Movie Review

    Brent McKnight
    17 Jul 2014 | 2:51 pm
    When “The Purge” opened last summer, it was a huge success. With a budget of $3 million, it eventually earned more than $89 million worldwide, and as a result, barely a year later we have James DeMonaco’s sequel, “The Purge: Anarchy.” You can be forgiven for having reservations about this movie. After all, it wasn’t even greenlit when the original opened, and a year from approval to finished script to shooting to post-production to a wide release, is almost unheard of and doesn’t bode well from a quality standpoint. So the fact that this movie is good, better than the…

Who knew there was such a big demand for zombies? I thought it would be a mild cult hit, maybe struggle on for a few years, then get canceled. Man, was I wrong! Anyways, I guess it’s safe to say that ol Daryl isn’t having the best time of his life in Terminus when we’ll next see him. I bet he wishes his big brother Meryl was still around to save him.

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

It was on the couple’s wedding night that the marriage (according to Swanson) turned violent.  Swanson claims during their first night together and with her mother in an adjoining room, Beery raped her.

Her short period in the top of the Hollywood spotlight as the classy, expensive and fashion-forward starlet altered trends, generated millions in sales and made her seem much taller than her five foot tall frame. Conversely, Wallace Beery appeared to film-lovers everywhere to be the epitome of the exact opposite. With his rugged, line-filled face, ape-like body and husky voice, Beery was quickly wedged into type-casted roles as villains, rough working men and hardened…

    Could Foxcatcher be the next big Oscar bait film? Foxcatcher is the unsettling true story of American millionaire John du Pont’s relationship with American Olympic wrestling brothers, Mark and Dave Schultz. Foxcatcher is helmed by Bennet Miller, and stars Channing Tatum, Steve Carrell, and Mark Ruffalo. The Foxcatcher trailer is more unnerving and creepy than horror films nowadays. Watching Steve Carrell’s performance in just the trailer alone was enough for me to take notice and say that Foxcatcher has the chance to be Oscar bait. Carrell looks like he is the role of Du Pont, and…

    Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is the sequel to Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (2011), which heralded the latest reboot of the Planet Of The Apes franchise. Dawn presents a story much more intelligent than you’d expect of a blockbuster, its creators having put an overwhelming amount of effort into creating a world that is believable, into creating a wholly new culture for characters that are unique and relatable, furry or not. Rise was good, but Dawn is even better.

    There is only one theatre within reasonable driving distance where I can go to see the smaller, limited release films that come out. On their website they list any small film as an “art film”. When I finished watching Snowpiercer this title seemed like a complete misnomer. Don’t let the limited release of the film fool you; this movie is action sci-fi that could have been marketed to audiences all across the country. There is enough action to satisfy the popcorn viewers and enough thought-provoking material to satisfy viewers looking for something a bit more sophisticated. It’s a…

That's the usually hilarious Rob Corddry as Robbie talking to his friends Annie (Cameron Diaz) and Jay (Jason Segel), a couple who try to rekindle their once passionate sex life in the movie Sex Tape. That line got the biggest laugh at my screening. But the guffaws felt Pavlovian, like the canned laughter on a TV sitcom designed to entice the viewer into yukking it up as well. Even the very title, Sex Tape, indicates how out of step this movie is with the times. It's not a tape…

Framed as a reminiscence by his business and life partner Pierre Bergé (Guillaume Gallienne), the movie sometimes plays like a telefilm truncated for a pre-arranged timeslot on Lifetime. The majority of its running time is allotted for the most interesting part of course, the meteoric rise of Saint Laurent (Pierre Niney).

    It’s easy to play the victim when things become inconvenient. It doesn’t matter, who you are? Where you’re from? Or even what your profession is? In life, whether it’s this one or the next, you will always pay for the horrible things you do. Take these clowns for instance. They’re being held captive and not allowed to roam free as they wish. All they want is to go home to their families, and don’t even realize why they’re being punished. It’s only a matter of time before anxiety and frustration kick in and reveal their true colors. Staring at…

  • Fantasia Fest 2014: SUBURBAN GOTHIC Review

    Adam Patterson
    23 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    DIRECTED by Richard Bates Jr. Suburban Gothic is the sophomore feature for writer-director Richard Bates Jr., and although the tone is decidedly different than his first film, Excision, the unique visual style is much the same. Favoring comedic antics and funny dialogue over gore, this is a lighter horror film, but still manages to be a fun and entertaining ride and yet another solid entry into Bates’ filmography. The film revolves around a recent college graduate, Raymond (Mathew Gray Gubler), who can’t seem to find a job and is forced to move back in with his folks, played by Barbara…
