    1. You plan your social and work life around movie releases; it's near impossible for anyone to see you on a Friday evening because you're at a movie theater.2. You've seen a movie all by yourself (many times!) on theater.3. You HATE to miss the beginning...4. The only kind of marathon you know or have ever participated or championed is a movie marathon! (How many movies have you seen back to back? Tell me in the comments below. Let's see who makes a record!) 4. You google every film (good or bad) after watching and read every review out there!6. You could punch someone in the face…
  • America Ultra Trailer 2: Agent Howell Has Been Activated!

    I gotta be honest, I have a love hate relationship with both of American Ultra's stars. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart (Twilight) can both be brilliant and grating at times.  It appears that when put together in a comedy, we're going to get brilliant performances out of them both.  Eisenberg plays Mike Howell, who is a sleeper agent activated while working at a mini-mart, suddenly capable of taking out two other agents with merely a spoon he was prepared to use for his cup-o-noodles. His girlfriend Phoebe wonders, "Why are people trying to stab you?" to which…

  • Il Cinema Ritrovato: Back to the future (of movies)

    Observations on film art
    5 Jul 2015 | 3:44 am
    DB here: The Teatro Comunale of Bologna is an eighteenth-century opera house that was launched by a premier of a work by Glück. It has hosted massive productions of Wagner, Rossini, and Verdi, and was a favorite venue of Toscanini’s. Elegant and imposing, with box seats and an orchestra pit, it makes you feel like you’re in Senso or Liebelei. In some years Cinema Ritrovato has secured the Teatro for gala screenings of silent films, complete with orchestral accompaniment. One show of Lady Windermere’s Fan was a delight. In another year, the hammering Meisel score for The…

  • Look Away, Dixie Land: Reflections on Life in the South, Racist Iconography, and Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing

    Chaz Ebert
    27 Jul 2015 | 5:33 am
    I never thought that I would see this historical moment of the removal of the Confederate flag in my lifetime, and yet I was witness to it this very summer. The Confederate flag has long been a target of heated controversy, with some defending it as a symbol of their heritage and States rights. But with many more viewing it as a banner of captivity and oppression and an iconography of separation and hatred. In breaking with the old ways it is like getting rid of a civil war within ourselves and removing a barrier to our full expression of understanding. No, It won't solve all of our racial…
  • Who Gets to Be a Hero: A Look Back at "Attack the Block"

    Jessica Ritchey
    27 Jul 2015 | 5:22 am
    As blockbuster sci-fi films get more empty-headed and pointless, 2011’s lean, smart “Attack the Block” looks better than ever. The film's story concerns the events of one night where a group of South London teenagers defend their Council Estate from alien monsters. "Attack the Block" deftly avoids the “poverty porn” pitfalls of its setting and characters. The buildings and hallways are shot to resemble the seventies industrial sci-fi look of films like "Alien" and "Silent Running." The cast is led by John Boyega (who will be one of the leads in December's "Star Wars, Episode VII:…
  • You Don’t Have To Be A Movie Buff To Love The Pulitzer-Prize-Winning Play “The Flick,” But It Helps

    Glenn Kenny
    27 Jul 2015 | 5:21 am
    Attention movie people who don’t think they’re theater people (especially if they’re movie people in New York City): there’s a play you really ought to see anyway. Annie Baker’s “The Flick,” currently at the intimate Barrow Street Theater in New York’s Greenwich Village, is a Pulitzer-Prize-winner with a theme that seems, on the surface, rather unlike the sort of grand stuff that wins Pulitzer Prizes. Over the course of two acts in a little over three hours, “The Flick” lets the audience get to know three young (or, in one case, youngish) people working in the eponymous…
  • Staten Island Summer

    27 Jul 2015 | 5:21 am
    Following the success of “Wayne’s World,” the ‘90s saw a wave of “Saturday Night Live” sketches turned into feature films that are best forgotten, including “It’s Pat,” “The Ladies Man,” “Superstar” and “A Night at the Roxbury.” The films were exercises in laziness, features built on the concept that the only thing one needed to in order to stretch a 5-minute sketch into a 90-minute movie was to repeat the same jokes—and often catch phrases—about 18 times. The comedies were particularly frustrating because one could sense the pure comic talent of people like…

    The Fittest Man and Woman on Earth were both crowned at the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games Sunday, and the next day they dropped by ESPN’s “SportsCenter” to teach some of their gravity-defying strength moves to anchor Stan Verrett. Ben Smith of the United States and Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir of Iceland were named champions of the four-day global event at the StubHub Center in Carson, California, that featured competitors from over the world and was aired live on ESPN for 50 hours throughout the weekend. They each won $275,000. With grueling challenges including Midline…

    (Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you haven’t watched the Season 11 finale of “The Bachelorette”) Kaitlyn Bristowe had a big decision on her hands on the Season 11 finale of ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” but first she took both Shawn Booth and Nick Viall for the ultimate encounter with her parents. Fortunately for them, the Canadian dance instructor’s mom was even more entertaining than her daughter, as she called out both aspiring suitors for past silliness and called Nick a “teddy bear.” After a visit from celebrity jeweler Neil Lane, it…
  • Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Autopsy Could Bring Few Answers After Months-Long Hospitalization, Experts Say‬

    Tim Kenneally
    27 Jul 2015 | 8:46 pm
    The autopsy of Bobbi Kristina Brown — the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown who died Sunday at age 22 — could prove to be particularly complicated for the Fulton County, Georgia, medical examiner’s office. Even with the medical examiner releasing a preliminary report on Monday, the staff could very well find itself facing an uphill battle to determine the cause and circumstances of Brown’s death, because of the six-month period that passed between Jan. 31 — when Brown was found face-down and unresponsive in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia home…

Before she died, her father Bobby Brown, Pat Houston, Pat’s brother Ray Watson and her sister-in-law Donna Houston, Gary Houston, conservator Bedelia C. Hargrove and other family members joined together in prayer at the Atlanta, Georgia, hospice. They then sang hymns together following the 22-year-old’s death. As they waited for a minister to arrive, they read together from the Bible, specifically from…

  • One of the Least Popular Best Picture Winners Is Being Remade

    Christopher Campbell
    27 Jul 2015 | 1:08 pm
    Columbia Pictures More?! Carol Reed‘s Oliver! is hardly one of the most hated movies of all time, especially compared to other Best Picture winners such as The Artist, The King’s Speechand Crash, to name some of the more recent champs that were met with outcries. But the 1969 Oscars were such a strange event in historical retrospect that it’s easy to think it’s considered to be of low quality. That was a time when cinema and its audience were changing, and now cineastes consider 2001: A Space Odyssey to be the best movie of 1968. And they shun Oliver! for…

As a general rule, I am a fan of the show’s second season, while she has come to agree with many of the people who stopped watching early.

The modern flash mob was born. By the time Wasik admitted to being the anonymous organizer three years later, flash mobs had become a global phenomenon fueled by the very willingness to be silly in public that Wasik wanted to explore. Wasik wanted to inject whimsy into public and commercial spaces, and it didn’t take long for the movement to…

My entry into public relations seemed to coincide with a time when the industry, that had for so long prided itself on the modern, progressive and cosmopolitan image it had cultivated, seemingly woke up to the fact that it had an incredibly poor record with regards to diversity. The most recent figures indicate that just 8% of PR practitioners are from an ethnic minority background, and while the industry generally has a good record with gender diversity, it still remains…

Whatever dinosaurs were left roaming the island, be they friend or foe, will be doing something to entertain us. They'll be doing it with the charismatic Chris Pratt and plucky Bryce Dallas Howard right along side, them, as well. Honestly, we'll be there, hoping for a slightly better storyline the second time around, one that meets the expectations set by the technical wizardry.

  • Vernon, Florida

    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.

    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.

For those in power, selfishness and greed are the order of the day, and for the workingman, a bitter life of endless toil is rewarded only with a bitter afterlife of endless torment. And yet, beneath the caustic social commentary that dominates the film lies an almost imperceptible championing of the incorruptibility of the human spirit, injecting this otherwise bleak forecast for humanity with a modicum of hope.
  • The Adventures of Gerard

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

  • The Craft of Creating a GoPro Launch Video

    Joey Daoud
    22 Jul 2015 | 2:08 pm
    Ryan Truettner, a Senior Production Artist at GoPro, has an extremely insightful look at the production of the latest GoPro launch video for the new HERO4 Session. He was also behind one of my all time favorite GoPro videos, the launch video for the HERO4. Here are some of my favorite takeaways: Start with a palette first. When planning their shoot, the GoPro team starts with color first, to make sure there’s enough visual variety to ‘cleanse the palette,’ then they pick the locations from there. Efficient shooting. There’s some good production tips, but my favorite…
  • Drones Delaying Fire Fighters is Sign of Poor Guidelines and Communication

    Joey Daoud
    21 Jul 2015 | 7:45 am
    Drones are in the news again, this time for the nuisance they caused during the wildfire blazing across the highway in San Bernardino County. Five hobby drones were spotted circling the area, forcing firefighting copters to dump their fire retardants and land early. While the drone pilots are trying to be located and some are calling for criminal prosecution, I think what this really highlights is the void in clear rules, processes, and education about what you can and can’t do with a drone. If I try to picture myself at the scene of the fire with a drone, the sky might be clear so…
  • Everyone from Bots High that’s in BattleBots

    8 Jul 2015 | 3:43 pm
    Way, way back in 2008 I was home from school for a few weeks when I caught an ad for a national BattleBots competition happening in Miami. BattleBots was one of my favorite shows growing up, so my mind was blown when checked it out and found out that even though the show ended, the competitions were still happening. Not only that, but it wasn’t just adults that were competing. High school kids were building impressive robots and duking it out in the arena. This instantly seemed like a cool doc – follow some students around as they navigate their teenage years while building metal…
  • Adobe Morph Cut vs Avid Fluid Morph – Jump Cut Test

    Joey Daoud
    24 Jun 2015 | 3:04 pm
    Adobe just released a slew of updates across the board for their Creative Cloud apps. One of the big ones in Premiere that I’ve been looking forward to for a while is the Morph Cut transition. This transition is designed to stitch together a jump cut in an interview to mask the cut. Well, that’s the idea at least. The only thing similar to this that existed before is Avid’s Fluid Morph in Media Composer. Fluid Morph works really, really well. So well that I downloaded the trial of Media Composer to clean up some jump cuts from Dolphin Lover, then export them back to FCPX.
  • Best Tools I saw at NAB 2015

    8 May 2015 | 6:17 am
    This year was my second time at NAB, covering new gear for Filmmaker Magazine. I can’t say there was anything that completely blew me away, but there was some new gear and tools that definitely piqued my interest and looked quite useful for the future. Solo Smart Drone One thing there was no shortage of at NAB was drones. But 3DR caused a big splash with their new Solo drone. Unlike DJI, 3DR is sticking with GoPros as the camera instead of making their own, and the Solo offers full control over all GoPro settings while flying. But what really stands out with Solo is the amount of…

  • Hugh Jackman Shares First Teaser Image from His Final 'Wolverine'

    Alex Billington
    27 Jul 2015 | 8:10 pm
    One last time. Hugh Jackman has just posted the first promo photo from his final upcoming Wolverine movie. At Comic-Con a few weeks back Jackman gave a sentimental speech about his time playing Logan, confirming he would play him one last time in one final Wolverine movie (besides in X-Men: Apocalypse). He's now opening up the discussion on the final role for all the fans to contribute. The promo photo shows him holding up just one claw with the tagline #onelasttime. He also asks fans to write in 50 words or less what they want to see. It's sad this will be his last time, I must say, but all…
  • Watch: Full Trailer for HBO's Sports Comedy 'Ferrell Takes the Field'

    27 Jul 2015 | 1:40 pm
    10 teams. 10 positions. One Will Ferrell. Are you ready to rumble with the one, the only, Señor Ferrell?? HBO's next sports faux-documentary (following the absurdly hilarious 7 Days in Hell) is one titled Ferrell Takes the Field, in which Will Ferrell plays all 10 positions in baseball playing on 10 different teams in one day. I really admire what HBO is doing with Funny or Die and these sports sketches, sort of extending the online content into something that is worthy of being presented cinematically (and if you haven't seen it, I recommend Casa de mi Padre). This may not be…

    27 Jul 2015 | 1:10 pm
    Briefly: Paramount Pictures has confirmed a release date for the next Richard Linklater film, following Boyhood, which will hit theaters starting early 2016. Announced by THR, the studio has set a release for Linklater's That's What I'm Talking About for April 15th, 2016 next spring. Described as some kind of "spiritual sequel" to Linklater's Dazed & Confused, this film is set in 1980 about an "incoming freshman experiencing his first weekend in college as a pitcher on the school's nationally ranked baseball team." The story follows Blake Jenner ("Glee") as the freshmen pitcher who…

    Another new Christopher Nolan film already?! Yes indeed. But it's not what you're thinking. Thanks to a tip from The Film Stage, NYC's Film Forum venue has announced a special screening series coming up this August. They'll be showing three of the stop-motion animated shorts from American filmmakers Stephen and Timothy Quay, known as the Quay Brothers, as well as the new short film from Christopher Nolan about the brothers. Titled just Quay, Film Forum will be hosting the world premiere of the documentary, shot on 35mm, profiling the brothers and their animation work. This is the first we've…
  • Trailer for 'Maryland' Starring Matthias Schoenaerts & Diane Kruger

    Alex Billington
    27 Jul 2015 | 10:24 am
    This looks powerful. The first trailer for Alice Winocour's new film from Cannes, titled Maryland, has debuted online. The film follows Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead, Rust & Bone, Far from the Madding Crowd) as an ex-soldier with PTSD hired to protect a woman, played by Diane Kruger, but soon begins to fall for her. This trailer plays without any dialogue, but does show plenty of scenes that will give you an idea of all the emotions these people are feeling. The score is what makes it all work so well, but it's just an impressively crafted trailer that will draw you in and…

  • ‘Victoria’ Trailer: Two Hours of Single-Take Action

    Russ Fischer
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:30 pm
    Victoria started doing the rounds at festivals early this year, and I’ve talked to more and more people who really admire it, and at times even love it, after it plays each successive festival. What’s the big deal? In this case, it’s that the film was captured in one single shot, running over two hours. And, while part of me thinks 2+ hours is a long time to watch a single-take experiment, the rest of me is totally game for it. Here’s what the distributor is saying as part of the official blurb for the film: “This film is not a movie; it’s not about a bank…
  • Shudder Aims to Curate a Streaming Movie Catalog Tailor Made for Horror Fans

    It’s already clear that the most popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, HBO Go and more are here to stay. But it looks like the world of streaming might be evolving to appeal to more hardcore cinephiles. There’s a new subscription-based streaming video service called Shudder, bringing a slew of different horror films to the masses. Sure, services like Netflix already have a selection of movies for horror fans, but Shudder works a little differently, and it just might be what the more seasoned movie fan is looking for.

  • VICTORIA: The One-Take Wonder Of 2015 Gets A U.S. Trailer

    27 Jul 2015 | 6:30 pm
    Since its premiere at Berlin in February, Sebastian Schipper's kinetic Victoria continues to make waves everywhere it goes. And now we've got a U.S. trailer ahead of its October 9th release from Adopt Films.The big reason that the film is making such a ruckus is because it is a 140 minutes long and was shot in a single take. Let that sink in for a moment. Having seen the film, I can say that it is one of the purest, most gut-wrenching and immersive experiences I've ever had in the cinema. Ever. It's most certainly gaining ground as my favorite film of the year. And while that may seemingly be…
  • Fantasia 2015 Review: THE DARK BELOW Will Make Your Blood Run Cold

    27 Jul 2015 | 6:00 pm
    Here's a new kind of chiller, for real. The Dark Below, which screened for the first time ever at Fantasia 2015, features a woman trapped in a frozen lake for nearly the whole length of the film. It was shot in sub-zero temperatures, and as someone who can't stand that kind of cold, I find it amazing that anyone would agree to work on the film in the first place. That also means that the entire premise is that much more horrific.Directed by Douglas Schulze, who co-wrote with Jonathan D'Ambrosio, The Dark Below takes its time unfolding the narrative in clever ways. Rachel (Lauren Mae Shafer in…
  • Fantasia 2015 Review: SHE WHO MUST BURN Scorches The Hubris of Human Behavior

    27 Jul 2015 | 2:00 pm
    The miracle of She Who Must Burn, a film perhaps most efficiently described as Red State for grown-ups, is that it offers three well worn elements - scripture quoting after committing an abhorrent act of violence (and the Ezekiel quote from Pulp Fiction, no less), the phrase "a storm is coming" and ironic use of religious hymns - in its opening minutes. And yet it manages to mine all of them for powerful new ideological and emotional spaces. It is daring to offer a promise of an ending directly in the title, but like the Paul Greengrass directed account of flight United 93, squaring an…
  • Fantasia 2015 Review: CHERRY TREE Yields Rotten Pits

    27 Jul 2015 | 12:00 pm
    The mantra "Death is only the beginning," is repeated throughout Irish occult horror Cherry Tree by the coven of witches who have infiltrated a small-town high school. Their sexy long tressed leader wears a guise as the girl's field hockey coach as a cover for seeking potential virgin teenagers to act as broodmare for their hoped-for antichrist. The mantra got really ironic for me while watching the film, because it has problems. Big enough problems such that it should have been set on fire, struck down, and re-planted in the hopes that something better could have risen, phoenix-like,…

As a taste offering of his work, Juras has put his award-winning short film The Lamp on Vimeo (it is embedded below) for public viewing.  After a presumably mediocre date, the couple awkwardly share a cab-ride home across Toronto, and the conversation acquires a tension as untruths are hinted at. The Lamp offers a look towards just how bizarre and specific a fetish can evolve into, and how the internet can allow indulgence to profligate serial daters. Buckle up. ...

      Given the recent and pronounced changes to Marvel’s line-up, there is clearly a marked desire to reach a more modern and diverse audience. From the development of complex and diverse lead characters to the promotion of female superheroes, Marvel is dragging its brand into the modern-day and winning an army of new fans in the process. One of the most exciting aspects is that it has brought new characters and narratives to the forefront of the comic book and cinematic world. Just as Thor introduced extra-terrestrial elements to the Marvel brand, so too we can expect the upcoming Doctor…

    Silicon Valley took the world by storm with its first season, but the caustic, geek-centric, culture commentary show had a lot to work out to get a second season to fly, and while still better than quite a bit of the television world, it didn’t quite make it to the level of the first few episodes of the show. The second kicks off by finally addressing the death of Christopher Evan Welch, who played Peter Gregory. While the show figured out ways to dodge his loss at the end of the first season, it was something that had to be explained for the show to continue. The show also had to take…

    Once in a while, a show comes a long that blows you away, but is unfortunately difficult to describe. It isn’t that it’s taxing to try to convey what you appreciate about the effort, but that it’s actually hard to describe the show itself. That may be a surprising statement, given that Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll has an official synopsis, was pitched, and has been and will be described countless times. Sure, Denis Leary plays an aging rocker who never made it, and the series begins with him finding the daughter he never knew he had. The pull is that she sought him out so…
  • Soundtracks That Take Over The Film – Add Your Picks

    I was recently forced to think about the connection between soundtracks and films, and when that relationship is taken to another level, and it moved me to create a list of some of the ones I think reach for the stars in this area. But, I didn’t want to include those that are too obvious (though I probably did anyway), and for a very specific reason. For example, I wasn’t interested in putting Once on the list, because really, why bother? Putting Once on the list is somehow to just repeat yourself. Pretty in Pink didn’t work either, because when your movie is a song on the…

He’s been on good shows, bad shows, and shows that should have lasted, but he’s never quite managed to rocket to stardom. I feel for him, because he’s really good, and I wish Lone Star was still on to show off his talents. He’s had breaks, but it’s like he’s cursed, because they just don’t turn into what you’d expect.

    Even heady proclamations like the ‘Greatest Film Ever Made’ cannot overstate how powerful this picture is. The story of a mercurial newspaper magnate who began his career as an idealistic entrepreneur raised with a silver spoon in his mouth who, over the course of his life, breaks down to an egomaniacal tyrant is like an insatiable addiction.

    Gone With the Wind is that rare case where its desire for ‘grandeur’ trickles down successfully through every aspect of production. From Selznick’s madness for control, the obscene four-hour running time, Max Steiner's memorable score, the film’s massive production elements, even down to Scarlett O’Hara’s character grand character arc, the film continually leaps over the audiences’ high expectations, which with much room to spare. Its grandeur, spectacle and pop culturally zeitgeist significance is still a marvel and remains largely untouched in the annals of cinema history.Gone…

    [Forecast Update]: Pixels opened with $9.2M on 3,723 screens Friday, indicating an estimated $25M and a 1st place berth at the weekend box office. That's $2,471 per screen. It's far from assured however. Ant-Man made $7.23M on Friday on 3,868 screens for a per-screen take of $1,870. That doesn't bode well for the Marvel/Disney taking the #2 spot.

Jurassic can also boast it reached that $1.52B quickly, taking only 40 days for the film to hit that mark, whereas Avengers took 133.

  • ‘Best of Enemies’ makes for great debates in new doc

    By Pam Grady
    23 Jul 2015 | 6:57 pm
    Hunter S. Thompson may have used “fear and loathing” in many a title, but to witness the actual emotions, a place to start is with the 1968 debates between intellectual heavyweights Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley Jr. that aired every night on ABC in tandem with the Republican and Democratic conventions. The subject of Robert Gordon and Morgan Neville’s documentary, “Best of Enemies,” the verbal jousting between the liberal Vidal and the conservative Buckley is pure theater, animated by their evident abhorrence of each other. The debates were a precursor to the gladiatorial arena…
  • Blu-ray review: Innovative French sci-fi show

    Not since “The Twilight Zone” and “The Outer Limits” have I discovered a science fiction anthology show as compelling as this French-produced TV series based on short stories that appeared in the heavy metal magazines of the 1970s. Each tale was shot with both French and English voice tracks, so these shows are not dubbed. The CGI effects are quite startling in the pilot episode, set on a faraway planet where those seeking power fight each other gladiator-style.

    Detective Inspector Mike Shepherd (Neill Rea) walks onto each murder scene and pauses to have a conversation with the corpse, one-sided of course. A neat twist to the "elementary" style of plainclothes cop. Shepherd drives a 1971 "classic" car (a Holden Kingswood) and always plays old audio music tapes with dark themes in their lyrics. "Playing the Lie" will appeal to golfers — it opens with a corpse being found near the first green. In "Hunting the Stag," one of three friends ends up dead, shot with his own rifle. There are bonus interviews with the stars and supporting players, and a…

    The experience of “Southpaw” is rather like seeing the truth behind the cliches, revived in all their pain and power to surprise. “Southpaw” was directed by Antoine Fuqua, whose great credit is “Training Day,” but who has made all kinds of movies of varying quality, though his films are usually a little better than their screenplays. [...] because she’s played by Rachel McAdams, who exudes confidence and competence, we know he’s in good hands. The conversation covers lots of ground and goes from tenderness to contention to resolution. Screenwriter Kurt Sutter distills their…
  • “Unexpected’ review: Character-driven study of pregnancy

    By G. Allen Johnson
    23 Jul 2015 | 10:33 am
    Inner-city high school teacher Sam finds herself pregnant but unmarried — and in an unrelated event, so is one of her students. Sam (an excellent Cobie Smulders of TV’s “How I Met Your Mother”), a middle-class white woman who has just turned 30, is in a much more stable situation than 18-year-old Jasmine (Gail Bean, also very good), an African American who is one of Sam’s best students and dreams of going to college. Sam lives with her boyfriend, John (Anders Holm), who welcomes the news and proposes immediately — in fact, they’re at City Hall getting married within days. If…

    Everyday objects are becoming increasingly connected to the internet. Whether it’s a smart phone that allows you to check your home security, or an app that lets you start your car or close your garage door from anywhere in the world; these technologies are becoming part of what is known as the Internet of Things (IoT). An observable trend is the rapid deployment and consumer use of IoT devices, which can communicate with one another and share information without user input or activity. This trend is evident in the now billions of IoT devices in use by individuals and organizations in…

  • Ten myths about the French Revolution

    Amelia Carruthers
    26 Jul 2015 | 3:30 am
    The French Revolution was one of the most momentous events in world history yet, over 220 years since it took place, many myths about it are still firmly entrenched in the popular psyche. Some of the most important and troubling of these myths relate to how a revolution that began with idealistic and humanitarian goals resorted to the “Terror”. It is a problem that is as pertinent for our own world as it was for the people of the late eighteenth century. 1. The French Revolution was made by the poor and hungry. False. Or not initially, though they were certainly involved later.

    14 Jul 2015 | 2:46 am
    The courtyard outside the Cineteca di Bologna, during Il Cinema Ritrovato. DB here: Some initial figures are in, and they’re fairly stupendous. There were about 85,000 admissions to all screenings of this year’s Cinema Ritrovato, which ended ten days ago. That figure includes the big public shows on the Piazza Maggiore, but the day-in, day-out screenings were heavily attended as well. There were 2500 or so festival passes sold. Assuming that those people stayed for four of the festival’s eight days and attended four shows a day, we can surmise that at a minimum 40,000 of overall…

In between those screenings I tried to fit in some programs of pre-1920s cinema.   Bringing the Apu Trilogy back from the ashes That was the title of a panel presentation during the festival, one which I missed because I was watching the first of the four Iranian films. In this case the metaphor is literal. The original negatives of the Apu films were stored in a…

    DB here: The Teatro Comunale of Bologna is an eighteenth-century opera house that was launched by a premier of a work by Glück. It has hosted massive productions of Wagner, Rossini, and Verdi, and was a favorite venue of Toscanini’s. Elegant and imposing, with box seats and an orchestra pit, it makes you feel like you’re in Senso or Liebelei. In some years Cinema Ritrovato has secured the Teatro for gala screenings of silent films, complete with orchestral accompaniment. One show of Lady Windermere’s Fan was a delight. In another year, the hammering Meisel score for The…

    Kristin here- David and I are in Bologna for Il Cinema Ritrovato. Once again there is an overwhelming choice of films on offer, demanding a patient acceptance of the fact that one cannot possibly see anything close to everything one wishes. Careful planning can only do so much. If there is anything I have learned from the films in the first half of the festival, it is that one should not leave home. In the earliest surviving Mizoguchi Kenji film, The Song of Home (1925), a talented but impoverished young man accepts the idea that staying in his village is best for both himself and Japan.

He didn’t realize he was constrained to a metal chair. Ropes were tied to his feet and handcuffs bound his wrists, causing him to fall over on his side the moment he rocked in his seat. “Agh! Damnit!” he ached. All he saw was a bright light shining in his face. Outside of that there was nothing but darkness. The echo from his voice and the cold damp floor helped the man realize he was in a closed empty space. It didn’t take long…

The ship is from the Treasure Fleet, which sank along Florida’s Treasure Coast on July 31, 1715 in what experts consider “one of the most important maritime tragedies in history.” Apparently, pirates were uninvolved.

    It’s impossible to talk about dinosaur movies without mentioning the ground-breaking 1993 film Jurassic Park, a fun, exciting summer blockbuster about a mad scientist who extracts dinosaur DNA from mosquitoes trapped in amber and then creates a theme park around the resurrected beasts. Based on one of the many books written by the remarkably prolific Michael Crichton, it remains one of director Steven Spielberg’s best movies. Two decades after the Park’s disastrous shutdown, a new dinosaur-themed amusement park called Jurassic World has opened up on Isla Nublar, funded…

  • Watch: Sublime 'Queen of Earth' Trailer Breaks Out Some Old-School Psychological Horror

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:15 am
    It's difficult to make a movie trailer stand out in this day and age, so one way to do that is simple: make a movie trailer from a different day and age. That's the tactic the new thriller Queen of Earth has gone for and the result is downright sublime. The movie is directed by Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip) and stars Elisabeth Moss as a woman who just needs to get away from it all, so she heads to a friend's (Katherine Waterston) lake house for some peace and quiet.

  • Watch Kevin James Learn His Big Smurf Moment in 'Pixels' Was Cut and Given to Michelle Monaghan

    27 Jul 2015 | 6:49 am
    With Pixels arriving in theaters this past weekend, old-school arcaders were probably having some fun spotting all the little '80s references scattered throughout the film. One such memorable '80s-centric moment comes when the crew is out fighting an invading alien race who've disguised themselves as video game characters and they come across an adorable little Smurf.  In the early trailers for Pixels, there's a funny scene when Kevin James blasts a Smurf to pixels,...Read MoreRead Comments

    As we walked/ran down the endless hallway to Theater 15, my kinetic 5-year-old stopped dead in his tracks, staring up in awe at the wall covered in five enormous posters. “Daddy, Pac-Man! … and Donkey Kong!” he shouted in amazement. I explained the other posters to him, all of which depicted ’80s-era video games for the movie Pixels. My son’s eyes widened a bit more. He bellowed, “I want to see THAT!” then raced on ahead of me to our theater....Read MoreRead Comments

    We know Ed Helms has made it, because he’s been entrusted to take over a beloved, 32-year-old comedy franchise this summer. He’s the new lead of the Vacation series, filling the shoes of original star Chevy Chase and carrying the torch as Griswold son Rusty. And this isn’t the only movie reboot you’ll find him headlining, as Helms is also set to replace the late Leslie Nielsen for a new incarnation of The Naked Gun.

  • Is “Kong: Skull Island” In Trouble?

    7 Jul 2015 | 6:55 am
    Film fanatics may recall that about a year ago, Legendary Pictures debuted a surprise trailer for a “King Kong” follow-up during the San Diego comic-con. According to Deadline, the teaser showed images of Skull Island, King Kong’s infamous home, and seemed to depict a film that would deal more with the origin story behind Kong, as opposed to yet another re-telling of his capture and escape in New York City. In the aftermath of the reveal, it became known that the project was indeed named “Kong: Skull Island” and was already slated for a 2016 release. Despite the…
  • “Inside Out” and the Art of Looking Outward

    As one of the bigger Summer blockbusters of the year, Disney’s “Inside Out”, has come through with great success and acts as yet another testament to Disney’s trusty handiwork in great films. For this film in particular, it isn’t hard to see the creativity and ingenuity of creators and animators associated with “Inside Out”. The term ‘thinking outside of the box’ is exactly the phrase to describe the idea of the film. Even though thinking outside the box literally means taking a look inside the mind with characters as human emotions, it is a different take on how to look at…
  • Jurassic World’s Dinosaurs Cgi or Not?

    22 Jun 2015 | 7:28 pm
    One of the main issues I personally had with the film is the mediocre CGI. It wasn’t well polished and on IMAX screens, one could easily spot the bad CGI especially on human characters. Take a look at Chris Pratt in the photo below. The human beings lacked character and emotion simply because most of the time they probably were in front of a green screen. The Dinosaurs on the other hand looked very life-like and were very believable. I think most of the money was spent on making the dinosaurs look very real that they forgot that humans were also part of the screen. The rendering on some…

    30 May 2015 | 9:23 am
    I first saw this film back when it hit theaters in 2009, and it continues to give me the creeps to this day. I am normally not one for suspenseful and frightening dramas that involve serial killers and young girls—or any scary films involving anything remotely horrifying. Yes, I am a wimp, but moving on. The fact that makes this movie something worth watching and interesting, is the actor Stanley Tucci who plays George Harvey or as he is more commonly known in the film—Mr. Harvey. Tucci completely changes in this film from his normal comedic routine in other films you may have seen him…
  • Foreign Shores: Kites (2010)

    Naomi Etienne
    30 May 2015 | 9:18 am
    Romantic Bollywood films can either be really well done or downright cheesy, but one thing you can always count on is to be entertained despite the outcome. Most of the time there isn’t any deep underlining message that needs to be discovered, but rather, messages that float on the surface and are easy enough for anyone to pick up on. That’s also the beauty of Bollywood; we can enjoy it, laugh, sing along (or try horribly), and still understand what is going on with the story. Anurag Basu’s 2010 film, Kites, takes somewhat more of a dramatic turn, and in a depressing way. However, that…

    23 Jul 2015 | 9:01 pm
    Review by Candice Lee CatulloSOUTHPAW’s ringside boxing scenes are the least brutal part about this movie. Don’t take that the wrong way – the fight scenes are plenty raw and bloody (really bloody) – but the story outside the ring is dark, gritty, and bleak. The story opens on the Light Heavyweight boxing champion of the world in his prime, undefeated at 43-0, where luxury oozes with swollen eyes and stitches. The scene is modern, crude and gaudy. And it’s all about the champion, Billy Hope, played by an extremely fit Jake Gyllenhaal (NIGHTCRAWLER, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, DONNIE DARKO).

Various critics made out that actor-director Dennis Hopper's followup to his trendsetting hit EASY RIDER was a great example of a sophomore disaster, as a drugged-out "artiste" of cinema, spoiled rotten and riding high on the success of the earlier picture (plus various hallucinogens and pharmaceuticals), was given free reign to do as he pleased, and turned in an unwatchable, pretentious hippie-influenced…

    [A MURDER IN THE PARKopens in Mentor, OH on Friday July 24th exclusively at the Atlas Cinemas Great Lakes Stadium 16.]Review by Bob IgnizioIt’s an established fact that in the American justice system, innocent people are sometimes convicted of crimes they didn’t commit. In some cases, these people are even sentenced to death. So it goes without saying that, if there is evidence that exonerates these individuals, everything possible that can be done to free them, should be. That’s something even the staunchest death penalty supporter ought to be able to get behind. But what if someone…

    There is one movie that I think generally seems to have gotten a bad wrap… I mean this movie helped revive the careers of some of Hollywood’s most legendary action heroes of the 1980s and 1990s, they did this while adding some classic modern action stars that completely rock! This movie was also made in such a way that where as the explosions were fun, and the rest of the special effects were great, they didn’t seem (at least to me,) to be way over CGI’d, and they did all of this with a story that was both campy, and fun as hell! That movie I am talking about is of…

First off before I go in to the concert video, let me tell you a little bit about the album on which this video is based on… In 1991 Sting released this grammy award winning pop-rock album that features some of Sting’s more famous songs that he has released since going  solo, such as: ‘Island Of Souls’ & ‘Soul Cages’, along with so much more!

Maybe it is because they were made during a time when a lot of the original cowboys were starting to die out in droves, and thus some of the writers may have gotten inspiration from them… Maybe because it was in the golden…

    At San Diego Comic-Con 2013, director Zack Snyder announced that the follow-up to his divisive film Man of Steel would give fans something they’ve wanted for years: Batman and Superman sharing the silver screen. That film was eventually titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and it will serve as an entry point into an entire shared DC Universe, culminating in a Justice League film and several standalone features starring DC’s biggest heroes.

    Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions comedy brand continues to reap healthy profits (despite consistently poor critical receptions for its film releases), but there have been signs in recent years that consumer fatigue is starting to set in. The Sandler-headlined movies That’s My Boy (2012) and Blended (2014) both performed below expectations during their domestic box office runs, as did the Sandler-led Pixels (2015) in its opening weekend – even though the latter had the added pull of 1980s arcade game nostalgia and better production values than your average Happy…

    Star Wars has long been a fan favorite within the sci-fi community, even as the theatrical cuts of the original trilogy from the late 1970s and early 1980s have for years been made unavailable by series creator and former franchise owner George Lucas. But since Lucas sold the rights to his groundbreaking blockbuster franchise (and subsidiary production studio Lucasfilm) to the Walt Disney Company in 2012, a new hope is on the horizon for the eventual return to form for Episode IV, V, and VI. The original version of the first Star Wars trilogy has remained largely unseen since the first…

    This is a real “watch this, not that,” segment this time. Self/less was the “serious” opening last weekend — directed by overt stylist Tarsem Singh, starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley — and the worst sin that could be leveled at it was that it was kind of stoopid. But then, the weekend also saw the debut of a couple of more compelling releases: Jellyfish Eyes, a family film send-up directed by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami; and the delirious Korean noir comedy A Hard Day.

    “An emotional debt is hard to square” —Iceberg SlimIn the treacherous waters of mass narcissism, Sean Baker's cinema is a floating anomaly. While many of his peers' careers are built on the compulsive cult of (their) vacant selves, and the artful maintenance of the ego seems to be the sole artistic purpose of their cinema (from Alex Ross Perry to Miguel Gomes, the plague is as vast as it is virulent), Baker's cinema is an antithetical response to this widespread tendency.

    David Cairns

    It didn't take long for Alain Robbe-Grillet to plunge into directing, after the success of his literary career (as doyen of the nouvelle roman) and his screenplay for Last Year at Marienbad. And it didn't take long after L'immortelle, his 1963 debut, for him to plunge into porn. Trans-Europ Express (1966) was banned in Britain, its scenes of s&m kink far too extreme for Anglo sensibilities at the time. We were still reeling from Jane Birkin's pubes. We weren't ready for chains and rape fantasies. Still aren't, probably.1968's The Man Who Lies again stars Jean-Louis Trintignant, but seems…

    Insidious 3 is the best of the bunch Greetings & salutations to all the fans of the horrific & scary. This episode of The Horror Movie Show, hosted as usual by Jerry & Mark, is weighted toward the science-fictionish sort of nastiness, though the first movie reviewed is as close to an old school ghost story as you can find these days. Insidious Chapter 3 is a starring vehicle for actress Lin Shaye. And about time, too. The versatile & recognizable Shaye has played the psychic Elise Rainier in each of the Insidious movies. This flick gives us her back story. And it’s safe…

    The Terminator said he’d be back Good day, folks! Here’s hoping our listeners in the northern hemisphere are not cooking & our friends in the south are not freezing. Regardless, Mark & Jerry — your hosts of The Horror Movie Show — have a plethora of reviews to amuse & confuse. First up is a pair of new flicks starring the Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Terminator Genisys is the latest in the up-and-down series. How does it stack up against its predecessors? You will hear here. Then comes some jibber-jabber about Maggie, a zombie movie decidedly gentler…

    Grab the bull by the tail & face reality Welcome to another episode of The Horror Movie Show, hosted by Jerry & Mark. This week’s hour of jibber-jabber is bursting at the seams with horrific goodness, along with some strange comedy. Please, take your shoes off & set a spell. We promise to take down the Confederate battle flag by the end of the show — because we are not monsters. But enough real-life horror. The show begins with a review of the remake of Poltergeist, starring the usually excellent Sam Rockwell. How does it compare with the much-loved original? That is…

  • Film Review – Do I Sound Gay?

    Cassidy Robinson
    27 Jul 2015 | 4:45 pm
    David Thorpe’s documentary Do I Sound Gay? comfortably sits just outside of a larger political question within the context of a personal journey. This is not an unusual way to frame a broad argument, such as western society’s attitudes towards perceived femininity in men, but Thorpe does a good job at never turning the film into a cause-oriented polemic debate. By placing himself as a neutral (and somewhat neurotic) cypher into the quandary of what it even means to “sound gay” he immediately cushions the implications of his question. In fact, this approach is both the best and the…

    The other half of the couple at the center of Outlander is Sam Heughan who plays Jamie Fraser. I interviewed Sam with fellow journalists in a roundtable setting at San Diego Comic Con. The interview started before I was ready, and I happened to catch the tail end of a question or possibly just a friendly chat that involved a lot of red heads somewhere. I had to laugh at this, listening to the interview again which somehow segues from red heads to the brutal Wentworth Prison scenes that ended the episodes for the first season. For the Outlander interviews, I represented both The MacGuffin and…
  • Film Review – Southpaw

    Edward Davidson
    23 Jul 2015 | 11:23 pm
    One last fight… One final chance to redeem himself… The need to battle inner demons in the ring… A brutal test of stamina to see if he can go the distance…All of these boxing cliches and more are very present in the new sports drama Southpaw. Antoine Fuqua directs this very standard story of a cocky, brutal boxer who at the beginning of the film defends his undefeated record as the light-heavyweight champion of the world. Jake Gyllenhal as the champ Billy Hope fully commits to the role of an aggressive fighter of limited vocabulary and a short fuse. His anchor in life…

    Allen Almachar
    23 Jul 2015 | 11:18 pm
    Imagine the worst day you’ve ever had, now expand it to a couple of days and multiply it by ten. That’s about the equivalent of what the main character goes through in Seong-hoon Kim’s South Korean thriller, A Hard Day (2014). This is a slick, neo-noirish tale that pits one man against Murphy’s Law – anything that could potentially go wrong does, and in the worst way possible. Homicide detective Go Geon-soo (Sun-kyun Lee) can’t catch a break. He’s going through a divorce, he lives with a sister that bugs him for cash, he forgot to buy the cake he promised his daughter, his…

  • Movie Review: Brando’s extraordinary career gets an ordinary treatment in Listen To Me Marlon

    27 Jul 2015 | 10:00 pm
    Documentaries that avoid the standard talking-heads approach are always welcome, even if they sometimes turn out to be less innovative than they initially appear. Listen To Me Marlon,a sort of biographical collage, opens with these tantalizing words: “Throughout his lifetime, Marlon Brando made hundreds of hours of private audio recordings, none of which have been heard by the public until now.” Will we get to hear intimate and revelatory secrets about perhaps the most lionized film actor of all time, direct from the man’s own lips? Before you get too excited, know that Brando’s…
  • Newswire: Sony wants Richard Linklater to direct Jennifer Lawrence in The Rosie Project

    Earlier this month, we reported that Columbia Pictures and Sony had picked up the rights to adapt Graeme Simsion’s novel The Rosie Project into a movie, with Jennifer Lawrence attached to star. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were originally supposed to direct, but those scruffy-looking nerf herders recently dropped out when they found something better to do. Now, Deadline says that Sony is looking to replace them with Richard Linklater, another director who is enjoying a Lord-And-Miller-style streak thank to the success of Boyhood. Linklater hasn’t officially signed on yet, but Deadline says…
  • Newswire: MGM is making a thriller about a pregnant woman confined to bed rest

    27 Jul 2015 | 5:38 pm
    We’re not experts on babies here at The A.V. Club, but we’re pretty sure one of the things you’re not supposed to do when you’re pregnant is star in a Rear Window-style thriller. If you’re not careful, that baby will come out talking just like Jimmy Stewart, and while that’d be really cute for a few years, you’d eventually get tired of hearing “Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building And Loan” all the time. Apparently, MGM isn’t concerned about that, though, because it has just picked up Bed Rest, a new thriller from first-time screenplay writer Lori Evans Taylor that…

    Earlier today, The A.V. Club posted an open letter I wrote to the distribution house Mongrel Media, which released the “lost” David O. Russell movie, Nailed, on Blu-ray and DVD in Canada a few months ago. In the letter, I took issue with a pull quote that the company used on the sleeve, an egregiously out-of-context excerpt from my review of the movie (released in the United States as Accidental Love). I ended the letter by calling for an apology. And that’s exactly what I received this afternoon: The president of Mongrel wrote and apologized, agreeing that it was the wrong call to take…

The listing has since been removed, but the BBC grabbed a screenshot that shows he’s playing someone named Senator Jebel./Film notes that early The Force Awakens casting rumors were also confirmed in a similar manner, so this sort of thing…

  • How to Vet Potential New Writers for your Website

    After you have found new writers that say they want to write for your website, the vetting process should commence immediately (whether you are vetting for paid positions or for Pro Bono Publico positions). This will determine if they will do what they say they will do and how well. After going through this process for years, I have found that some vetting methods work better than others.

In the scene, we see Captain America and The Falcon in a room with Bucky, aka the Winter Soldier. It looks like Bucky did something wrong, since he’s being restrained. The Falcon then says, “I know a guy,” likely referring to Scott Lang, the new Ant-Man. In the after-credits scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we see Bucky visiting the Captain America museum and seeing himself in the memorial and learning that Bucky was once Cap’s best friend.

    Far too often we come across explainer videos that tell us some company's product will "save time and increase sales," or maybe "save money and increase time," or some other iteration of this general concept, and each time this statement is uttered, it's accompanied by the inevitable clock and dollar sign graphics. Don't tell us you haven't seen it before... "Our award-winning, revolutionary technique is proven to save your company time, and increase sales!" It would be too easy to blame the animator.

Born into a working-class family in Brooklyn, Moe Howard transformed his real-life experiences of getting into mischief with his brother Shemp into the plots that would have millions rolling in the aisles. From childhood, Moe’s ambition was to perform—whether it was plucking a ukulele on the beach, or playing a halfwit on a Mississippi showboat. But he only found…
  • Curly: An Illustrated Biography of the Superstooge

    21 Jul 2015 | 9:39 am
    Editorial review of Curly: An Illustrated Biography of the Superstooge While the Three Stooges were the longest-active and most productive comedy team in Hollywood, their artistic height coincided with the years Curly was with them, from 1932 to 1946. To their fans, Curly stands out as the zaniest of the three. Famous for his high-pitched voice, his “n’yuk-n’yuk-n’yuk” and “why, soitenly,” and his astonishing athleticism, Curly was a true natural, an untrained actor with a knack for improvisation. Yet for decades, little was known about his personal life. Then, in 1985, Joan…

    Escape Rooms are a hot new entertainment trend popping up all over, the way cupcake shops did a few years ago.  They may be a fad that won’t last, but for those of us who are fans, there’s a wealth of options right now.  Part of the fun is trying different companies and seeing the different approaches as they all try to stand out from the crowd.  For my latest attempt, I checked out the Story Room by Two Bit Circus. First, a bit of background on Escape Rooms, for those who aren’t yet familiar with the concept.  A team of people, usually 4-6, is given a brief…

    Superheroes have been dominating the box office for several years now.  Each new release is greeted with eager anticipation, and some of the biggest movies of all time have been in this latest wave of comic book adaptations.  The Avengers currently holds the record for biggest opening weekend over, and third biggest domestic box office of all time.  Superheroes have started becoming more prominent on the small screen as well, with TV shows on the major networks, not to mention cable and new media outlets like Netflix.  In short, it’s a superhero’s world out there.

    I was on my mobile, playing the sequel to Where’s My Water, a slick and challenging little game from Disney that pops up an ad every now and then to get their revenue. One ad in particular was for a new platformer based on the Star Wars Rebels animated series. It’s a limited, 4 level taste of the full game, available for $4.99 that has mixed reviews. Admittedly, I just scanned the star ratings in the play store without actually reading the reviews posted, but I downloaded and played through the sampling. The app is pretty good. Excellent graphics and sound. The gameplay is mostly…

    I have been lucky enough again this year to have seen all of the Academy Award Best Picture nominees.  Because none of them got their own review, I am going to once again provide a short, one-paragraph review for all eight nominees in alphabetical order. American Sniper: The most financially successful movie to ever open wide in January, this is the most widely-seen nominee.  It can be political, but no matter your leanings, there’s something here to support your point of view.  Which in a way, means it feels free of political motive.  It’s got something for everyone, unless…

  • Wesley Snipes is going to take this bet in The Player TV series

    11 Jul 2015 | 8:11 pm
    Will you take that bet? Wesley Snipes stars alongside Philip Winchester in a new NBC drama-thriller called The Player, the story of a former military operative-turned-security expert who is drawn into a high-stakes game where an organization of wealthy individuals gamble on his ability to stop the biggest crimes imaginable. The series written by John Rogers and comes from the team behind NBC’s The Blacklist, so you can probably expect it to have a similar style. The show was apparently an early favourite through pilot season and a change with the main character was made from playing a…

    27 Jul 2015 | 3:37 pm
    After reaping bids with the Golden Globes, SAG, BAFTA, the BFCA, and the Indie Spirit Awards, a Best Actor nod from the Oscars seemed like a sure thing for "Nightcrawler" star Jake Gyllenhaal. However, his creepy performance didn’t make the cut. Now Gyllenhaal’s back for round two with "Southpaw," a boxing drama that sees the actor bulking up and taking the punches in classic awards-bait fashion. -BREAK- The film opened this weekend to a $16 million box-office haul, and with an "A" Cinemascore rating from audiences, it’s sure to continue making money, thus helping his…

  • Are showmances ruining 'Big Brother' Season 17?
    27 Jul 2015 | 11:06 am
    The showmance has long been a "Big Brother" staple, so much so that a few seasons have even been devoted to cultivating them -- Season 4's main twist was "The X-Factor" with five sets of exes in the house together and Season 9 saw the players competing as couples based on their compatibility as soul mates. Usually viewers are only subjected to one showmance per summer, and luckily the pair is quickly targeted as a threat by the houseguests. Unfortunately, this year we have two showmances brewing early, both of them in the controlling alliance that's been responsible for much of the season's…

  • Minions: Acquiring Cult Status

    Chris D'souza
    10 Jul 2015 | 12:49 pm
    The yellow sidekicks wearing goggles and dungarees from the Despicable Me franchise have graduated to cult status in the titular movie Minions, directed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin. The Steve Carrel voiced antagonist is now the movie’s lead as the movie sets stage in London, starting as a prequel structured classically in which Sandra Bullock voices the antagonist. The movie is robbed of its predecessor’s fame as the story arc lacks a definite narrative. Apart from this, the slapstick jokes are oddly funny and the franchise, known for releasing concrete animated movies on…

    8 Jul 2015 | 11:40 am
    Cartel Land starts with some misdirection. The movie interview candidates are real-life members of cartels manufacturing crystal meth. The director of Cartel Land, Matthew Heineman is gifted with a terrific eye, judging from his detailed documentary about Mexican and American vigilante groups, it’s clear he packs nerves and guts of steel. Using a feathery digital camera, he uses a run-and-gun template for a major portion of the movie. His pictorial quality and camera angles are just fantastic. Basic Premises A doctor from Mexico initiates a rebellion against the drug cartel that has…

  • Magic Mike XXL: a Satisfying Boys-Out Pleasure Trip

    Magic Mike, released in 2012, was a risky proposition as it fueled the male objectification norm. However, given its enormous box office success, it is no surprise that a sequel has been made. The movie brings back the cast of the original, minus (obviously) Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey, and adds numerous new faces to the cast, including Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Andie MacDowell and Amber Heard.

  • Dope: Quite Dope!

    29 Jun 2015 | 10:05 am
    Dope is a coming of age comedy that has gained mixed reviews. While some consider it as an unfunny cliched movie, others claim it’s full of energy and thrill. All in all, Dope has made its impression on the cinephiles. Although it’s not Dope in itself, you can see a mixed bag of struggles, compromises, and moral complexities in the movie. The film revolves around the story of a teenager, Malcolm, who has his fair share of battles to deal with, his life portrayal in the movie seems like a real life depiction where it no longer seems like fiction but rather a reality which is more…

    It's alive! ... alive!!! This week we review the Mel Brooks masterpiece Young Frankenstein starring the great comedic actor Gene Wilder. While a bit averse to slapstick, Matt tries to drink the farcical potion of this comedic retelling aided by Mark's soft sell. A nod to the old timey comedies of the Marx's, it mixes physical comedy with innuendo in an homage that doesn't mock but instead pays homage. And Oh yeah... Mark and Matt both agree that Terry Garr was hot! hot! hot! tsss...Download: 167 Young Frankenstein

    13 Jul 2015 | 6:58 am
    Apparently it takes an LDS BYU grad to truly get the nerd right when it comes to Hollywood film making. Scrap the stereotypes of the late night hacking (but cool) nerds of standard film fare, because the true nerd is one like Napoleon, social hobbled yet obsessed over things which bring no social currency. One of Matt's favorite funny movies, it's hard to watch ND with a straight face, even if you've seen the film too many times to count. Anyway, Vote for Pedro and enjoy.Download: 166 Napoleon Dynamite

    6 Jul 2015 | 11:03 pm
    Matt and Mark's "Summer of Funny" rolls on with the 1980 corn-ball classic Airplane! A farcical send up of the 1957 film Zero Hour, Airplane! rolls out its gag like a prop-comic act spinning the figurative into the literal for comedic hilarity. Does it hold up today? More or less, despite the Hari Krishnas at the airport (is that even a thing anymore?) and the strange notion of serving complimentary dinners aboard domestic flights. Download: 165 Airplane!

    Little did we all know that it was truckers and CB's that pioneered the art of wi-fi and chat rooms back in the day. Smokey and the Bandit introduced America to the adventure/comic-laid world of the big rig trucker and his Southern domains via comedic stylings of legend Jackie Gleason and Burt Reynolds. Matt is disappointed his childhood nostalgia for such fair, infused with hot wheels sandbox antics and pre-pubescent notions of romance, didn't send him back into yesteryear. However, Mark's first viewing left a positive impression. Pop a Coors, sit back, and relax good buddy…
  • 163 Zoolander

    10 Jun 2015 | 11:12 pm
    An Ebert one-star movie, Matt and Mark come across probably one of the famous film critic's worst reviews of all time. Conflating Zoolander's "insensitivity" to the events of 9/11 is probably one of the greatest stretches since the Olympic pole vault record was broken. Regardless, derived from Ben Stiller's hilarious "Ben Stiller Show", Zoolander deftly ties all its sketches in with a fairly consistent and well written story line. So grab a hose of 87 Octane and let the fun begin!Download:  163 Zoolander

Executive producer Steven Spielberg and producer Frank Marshall will return to lead the team of filmmakers, and Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return to star in the sequel. The film will be written by Jurassic World’s director, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. Spielberg will be joined by Trevorrow as executive producer.

  • Jurassic World Sequel Already a Lock

    27 Jul 2015 | 2:45 pm
    Jurassic World left audiences in stunned amazement. Its a thrilling installment in what has proven to be a wellembraced and relatively consistent (The Lost World was a bit on the underwhelming side) franchise. In fact many have called the picture the best of the series. Box office numbers certainly reflect the warm reception.
  • ILived (2015) Review

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:43 pm
    Youre not going to find any major marquee players in ILived. The special effects are also very limited. But there are a few extremely disturbing sequences and Jeremiah Watkins succeeds in his bid of fronting his first significant project. Chances are his showing is strong enough to lead to bigger gigs. The impact of the closing scene is felt on a very real level and the increase in insanity that we witness throughout the final two acts is definitely entertaining.
  • Will Fright Night Director Helm New Vampire Flick Fresh Blood

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:42 pm
    Tom Holland is a master of horror (he even directed the Masters of Horror installment We All Scream for Ice Cream) in the truest sense. With treasures like Fright Night Childs Play and Thinner under his belt hes firmly established himself a genre powerhouse. Fright Night is the mans most beloved feature which makes it more fitting that he may direct a new vamp tale Fresh Blood. His first feature length film in nearly 20 years the project isnt a go yet but Holland is in the mix and thats a good thing.

    24 Jul 2015 | 2:42 pm
    If you were watching television in the 90s you probably caught a glimpse of The XFiles. If youre a fan of science fiction and horror and you were watching television in the 90s you most certainly tuned in to the long running drama. It is hands down one of the finest television series ever produced and as most of you know by now its coming back after a very extended hiatus.
  • Creep (2015) Review

    23 Jul 2015 | 4:21 pm
    What we need more of in todays scene is high caliber found footage. Not because theres a dearth of found footage that is most certainly not the case. There is however a serious lack of truly high quality handycam films available. For every 20 we see released one may actually shine. It seems filmmakers have turned to the subgenre believing it to be the easiest (theres no such thing to be entirely honest) form of celluloid to tackle and as a result weve seen a slew of mediocre or even downright dreadful (heres looking at you Slender Man) pictures released in recent years. And in all honesty…

    The Stop Button

  • Shame (1968, Ingmar Bergman)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    27 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    Shame has three or four sections. Director Bergman doesn’t draw a lot of attention to the transition between the first parts, he hides it in the narrative. Liv Ullmann and Max von Sydow are a married couple living on an island following a war. Not much information about the war, but they’re concert violinists turned farmers. Their problems are relatively trivial–von Sydow’s unsuited for their new life–and their bickering, while not exactly cute, reveals their tenderness and partnership. Bergman moves Shame from this domestic drama territory into what should feel…
  • Spirit of the Marathon (2007, Jon Dunham)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    26 Jul 2015 | 12:45 pm
    Director Dunham’s thesis for Spirit of the Marathon is a little iffy. He clearly wants to show the differences and similarities between marathon runners–Dunham and the rest of the crew have zero presence in the documentary, which is fine (eventually). He goes from the people doing it for fun, to people doing it for personal achievement, to people competing for the win. He does a fantastic job evening out the attention he gives each subject. But he doesn’t really learn anything. Or, if he does, he doesn’t tell. The film ends with postscripts, catching the viewer up with…
  • American Splendor (2003, Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    24 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    American Splendor has a little too much going on. Directors Berman and Pulcini seem to want to do something different–Splendor opens as a cross between a docu-comedy and an attempt at time period preciousness (which gets them into trouble later as the film doesn’t progress, visually, out of the eighties). Paul Giamatti plays Harvey Pekar from the sixties through the nineties. Harvey Pekar narrates and gets interviewed. Berman and Pulcini don’t really give Giamatti a part so much as a comic book character. Splendor is the dramatized true story of Pekar, who dramatized his own…

  • The Decalogue: Nine (1990, Krzysztof Kieslowski)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    22 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    With Nine, writers Krzysztof Piesiewicz and Krzysztof Kieslowski have finally figured out how to parody themselves and the rest of The Decalogue. This entry, overwrought from the opening titles, is awful, but Piesiewicz and Kieslowski never quite commit to the more melodramatic, soap opera plotting they could. And Nine suffers for it. Piotr Machalica is a successful surgeon who finds out he’s impotent. He dreads telling his wife (played by Ewa Blaszczyk in one of the more thankless roles in film history) because she obviously won’t love him anymore. Kieslowski’s direction…

Not only was the indie drama a critical darling but it managed to gain mainstream traction, performing very well at the box office as a result.

In the wake of the new Water Sustainability Act, which allows corporations to purchase natural BC groundwater for a small fee and sell it in bottles for an inflated price, we present Water On The Table.

    So too does writer/director Steven Nesbit's North v South, which aims to transplant Romeo and Juliet to modern day Britain and replace the Montagues and the Capulets with Northern and Southern gangs. There's a shaky truce between the two factions and as the film opens, the heads of both gangs have gathered in the North to talk business. As the elders respectfully discuss their options, hot-headed Southern general Gary Little (Brad Moore) has managed to casually murder the best friend of the North's top dog John Claridge (Bernard Hill). Claridge starts to plot his revenge and Southern boss Vic…

There's an authenticity to the early scenes of the two boys meandering around the fields and backwoods of their rural town, bantering like only young boys do. Travis is the…

He and his friends Diggy (Kiersey Clemons) and Jib (Tony Revelori) are the freaks and geeks of their school thanks to their love of so-called "white shit", which apparently includes Game of Thrones and Childish Gambino.

Garvey's brother Victor (Keith Carradine) is also concerned.

He's a little bit eccentric but is friendly and very welcoming, inviting the couple over for a playdate-come-dinner-party that really comes to life once the kids are put to bed. Much of the comedy comes from Alex and Emily's discomfort at how open and uninhibited their hosts are; Kurt and his wife Charlotte (Judith Godreche) are extremely nice but a bit full on for the more…

President Will Cooper hasn’t lost touch with the common folk, especially his childhood BFF Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), who’s now a “geek squad” type techie at a box store. Back in the 1980s, the pair ruled the arcades with mastery on all the popular video games, and those skills come in pretty handy once a pixelated attack comes out of the sky. It seems aliens got a look at a space probe from 1982 and confused some video game…

    Southpaw by Hope Madden Hope is a tricky word in the hands of a writer. It is almost impossible not to assume the name Hope has been assigned a character for symbolic purposes. Certainly this can be done with finesse, but more often it’s as subtle as a punch in the face. (See what I did there?) Such is the case with Southpaw, Antoine Fuqua’s by-the-numbers redemption tale about down-on-his-luck boxer Billy Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal), who turns to a grizzled trainer played by Forest Whitaker to help him fight his way back to the top. If you’ve seen the trailer, you’ve seen the movie.

As the audience we’re neither with Boney nor Gilpin: if he did it, it’s too obvious. If he’s innocent, also too obvious.

After the one-two punch of Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron provided action on a grand scale, Ant-Man was just a movie about a burglar who wanted to do what was right for his daughter. With that story in mind, Ant-Man was a fun ride with some of the best action scenes in any Marvel movie. However, it seemed a little less than many people might like and probably won’t be as re-watchable as other Marvel films. Check out Caleb’s review of…
  • Hannibal ‘Digestivo’ Recap – Episode 03.07

    Bethany Lewis
    20 Jul 2015 | 8:45 am
    by Digestivo As we saw last week, Hannibal and Will ended up in the hands of Mason Verger and his eager chef and nurse Cordell. As one might have guessed, they arrived in his hands with the private help of the greedy Florentine Police Inspector. They arrive just in time to save Will from his grim fate, capturing both Will and Hannibal, and leaving Jack to be murdered by the police. Jack is saved at the last minute by Chiyo, who frees him in return for the location of Hannibal’s destination. In the meantime, Hannibal is having a grand old time allowing Mason to go about his preparations to…

  • Kill Bill: Vol. 1

    Dan Meier
    28 Jul 2015 | 12:50 am
    Quentin Tarantino’s fourth feature (sub-category: terrible title) is Kill Bill: Vol. 1, which I will review in chapters like Tarantino has used in every bloody movie. Chapter I: Fox Force Five – the Movie Uma Thurman plays an unnamed assassin, seeking vengeance on the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad who tried to kill her. And by “unnamed”, I mean that her name is actually beeped out. It’s really annoying. Maybe it’s a joke, but it’s hard to tell – and that’s a pervasive problem with the movie; it walks a clumsy line between martial arts…
  • Maggie

    Alex Chafey
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:35 pm
    It’s been a strange month for Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s gone back to his most successful franchise for the fourth time with the latest Terminator film, and now does something he’s never done before: a zombie film. This is Schwarzenegger’s second foray into the horror genre, but Maggie could scarcely be more different from 1999’s End of Days. While that film was an Arnie flick throughout, with loud action and cheesy lines, Maggie is a borderline arthouse zombie movie about his daughter’s gradual transformation into a flesh-eating monster. This will…
  • Blade

    Dan Meier
    20 Jul 2015 | 12:45 am
    This is a 1998 comic book movie about the half-vampire Blade (Wesley Snipes) kicking the (un)living shit out of some vamps. And by vamps I mean vampires, not the British pop group. Though they could certainly use a beating by Wesley Snipes. Snipes is instantly iconic and completely hilarious as Blade, or Eric to his friends (the second superhero called Eric after Bananaman). He’s actually glaringly uncool, more a sort of Schwarzenegger figure who tempers his muscular combat with bizarre kiss-off lines. Eric Blade is joined by N’Bushe Wright, Stephen Dorff and Kris Kristofferson as…
  • Ant-Man

    Alex Chafey
    19 Jul 2015 | 3:32 pm
    Marvel has enjoyed such enormous success in its ground-breaking cinematic universe that it’s now confident enough to attempt to put even the smallest of its heroes on screen, both in terms of physical size and profile. Cue Ant-Man, a hero who shrinks to the size of an ant but retains all of his strength. Luckily he’s more like a soldier ant than a worker, otherwise it’d be two hours of him moving soil, one grain at a time. The man inside the suit is Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a Robin Hood-style master criminal who’s recruited by the suit’s developer and original…
  • Love & Mercy

    Dan Meier
    17 Jul 2015 | 12:40 am
    Penned by I’m Not There writer Oren Moverman, Love & Mercy is a biopic of the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, played by Paul Dano, John Cusack and Cate Blanchett. Just kidding. The film switches between Wilson pre- (Dano) and post- (Cusack) mental breakdown, and the before parts are significantly better than the after – largely due to Dano’s performance as the young Brian in the ’60s; likeable, uncanny and a good singer too. He totally convinces as a musical genius, struggling with psychological, familial and creative forces; he wants to express himself…

  • Tom Cruise Is Down For ‘Top Gun 2′ But Only If There Is No “CGI On The Jets”

    Zachary Rowell
    27 Jul 2015 | 8:01 am
    Tom Cruise is ready to take our breath away once again. Even though he’s currently promoting his new Mission: Impossible movie, the 53-year-old actor seemed excited to step back for a moment to talk about Top Gun 2, the sequel that has been on and off more times than Lieutenant Dan trying to ride a mechanical bull. While talking with Extra, Mr. Cruise said he would love to film the sequel, but only if the jets were real… “I’d like to fly those jets again. But we’ve got to do all the jets practical. No CGI on the jets. I remember when I did the first one, I said ‘Look,…
  • Movie Review: Trainwreck (2015) – A Rom-com Without Sap; I Didn’t Think It Was Possible

    25 Jul 2015 | 10:00 pm
    There is a reason that I hate most romantic comedies. It’s not because of the lack of realism in the plot. I can pretty much enjoy anything that requires a leap of the imagination. Nope, it’s because there’s never a character I can identify with. The girl is always this Type A, high strung ball breaking business women who never had time to settle down because of her career. Note to movie writers, some of us aren’t in relationships and it has nothing to do with our careers. Some of us are just incredibly immature bed hopping binge drinkers. I can’t identify with some Type A nutjob.
  • ‘Jurassic World’ Sequel Lands 2018 Release Date, Chris Pratt And Bryce Dallas Howard Will Return!

    Zachary Rowell
    24 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    We knew it was coming. Just six weeks after its release, Jurassic World is already the third-highest grossing film of all-time. When a film is that successful at the box office, you know it’s going to get a sequel. Universal Pictures announced earlier this week that the next Jurassic World film will hit theaters June 22, 2018. And yes, both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be returning, which means there will be more eye candy for everyone. Director Colin Trevorrow will reportedly return to co-write the screenplay with Derek Connolly; however, he’s not expected to direct the…
  • Movie Review: Self/Less – “Here’s A Great Premise. Now Watch Us Ruin It With Ryan Reynolds”

    24 Jul 2015 | 1:55 am
    When I first saw the premise of Self/Less, I was like “this sounds really good.” Then, as I was watching it, I thought “wait a second, this seems familiar. Oh yeah, this movie was almost entirely copied from John Frankenheimer’s ‘Seconds.” If you’re familiar with the 1966 classic, then I have to say, Frankenheimer did it better. If not, you might find Self/Less intriguing. Damian (Ben Kingsley) is greedy real estate agent whose money can’t stop the terminal cancer that’s ripping through his body. He’d not ready to die, so it’s a bit of good fortune when a stranger named…
  • 10 Great Movies To Watch While You Are Sick And Miserable

    Zachary Rowell
    23 Jul 2015 | 10:24 am
    Summer won’t last forever. It’ll be fall/winter before you know it, and there is a decent chance you will catch a cold at some point. I won’t even mention the sickness that rhymes with woo. Being sick is no fun, but at least it allows you to stay at home and watch movies all day. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t like watching anything new when I am sick. A movie I haven’t seen before is too much to take in while sick, which is why I keep things light and entertaining with some old favorites. Check out the list below. Does your sick list look similar?

  • Kekkai Sensen

    16 Jul 2015 | 5:19 pm
    Also known as Blood Blockade Battlefront, this show is probably my favourite anime this year. From the creator of Trigun, Kekkai Sensen is primarily told from the point of view of Leonardo Watch upon arriving at Hellsalem’s Lot (New York after a portal to the netherworld opened), and his adventures with Libra (a group trying to maintain the balance in the city). Things of note in this anime include the soundtrack, animation and characters. In just a few episodes, the characters become well fleshed out and the jazzy soundtrack really adds to the atmosphere of the city. The anime is from…
  • Sense8

    13 Jun 2015 | 9:20 am
    One of the few shows I’ve binged on, upon release, and this one is well suited for exactly that. Sense8 tells the story of eight individuals who posses an interconnectedness with each other, allowing them to share their experiences. The show starts off slowly but picks up by episode 3 and has the best cinematography I’ve ever seen on any television show. The slower pace adds to the incredible character development and I went from hating several characters to loving them all by the end. Give the show at least three episodes before you decide on whether or not to continue watching.
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    9 Jun 2015 | 12:55 pm
    A lovely adventurous sort of movie. The Grand Budapest Hotel is the narration of how the main character (Zero Mustafa) became the owner of the famous hotel. The movie is filmed in a certain style (typical of a Wes Anderson movie), different from most films. The variety of characters in this movie is the most enjoyable aspect of the film and adds to the comedic interactions between them. This is a great movie with a fun plot and comes highly recommended.

  • Spartacus

    13 May 2015 | 2:55 pm
    “Bloody” is probably the best way to describe this particular show. Spartacus is based on the true story (liberally) of a slave who starts a revolution against the Roman empire to set slaves free. Two main attractions of this show are the action and the storylines of each character. As you may also notice, the way the characters speak English is quite funny throughout the course of the show. Spartacus is just enjoyable to watch, granted, partly due to the gratuitous nature of the show. Links: IMDB | The post Spartacus appeared first on Refined Distractions.

    Funny, dark, bloody and a captivating story. Utopia is the tale of a conspiracy based on an organization attempting to sterilize a part of the human population. Four individuals are subsequently drawn together to try to prevent the organization’s plans. In addition to the plot, the vibrant visuals and addictive soundtrack really stand out during the course of the show. Unfortunately, the show only has two seasons but is still worth checking out.

It appears that may very well be the case. According to Collider, Hamill has already begun voicing the Joker for The Killing Joke, which is the greatest possible news for this film!!
  • Those Terminator Genisys Sequels May Not Happen Anymore

    27 Jul 2015 | 1:27 pm
    Terminator Genisys is arguably this summer’s biggest disappointment. Grossing just $85 million in the US doesn’t justify a sequel, however, it has managed to pass $300 million at the worldwide box office, as of this past weekend. If this was an average movie, with a modest budget, that number would be great, if not spectacular. But this is Terminator, and the budget was certainly not modest. The production budget sat around an estimated $155 million, and that is on top of the $20 million Skydance had to pay to acquire the rights. All in all, Terminator Genisys is looking like a…
  • In The Future, You May Be Able To Vacation Like A Hobbit

Bajrangi Bhaijaan brings back that innocence but in an avatar not witnessed before. Bajrangi is no hero here fighting goons. He's a god-fearing, upright, honest simpleton. His simplicity and childlike guilessness charm you.Life takes a turn when he bumps into a five-year-old mute Pakistani girl who has been separated from her family.

Without a love story, the characters have no motivation. No likability. No impact on the audience. And a hero who doesn't love can't save the world. He can't fight 100 thugs without a scratch. He can't survive after taking 5 bullets.A hero who doesn't know love can't be a hero.And if you have lived in India in the last two decades, you may have noticed (or will notice post readin this) that the words "hero" and "love" have been…
  • The Importance Of Being Earnest (2002)

    24 May 2015 | 11:18 am
    Between films and theater plays, it is the former that has to compete with reality. A play, from beginning to end, looks artificial, unreal - the set, the lack of a fourth wall, etc. The audience is not seeing it through the eyes of a specific character nor are they focusing on a single actor. Everything is given to the viewers and they choose what to see. Recreating a play originally written for the stage into a film, is like making a huge jump from artificiality to reality. On stage - the artificiality, the fake background, the overemphasized and loud manner of speech cries out "this is not…

Fox announced that Season 15, premiering January 2016 will be the last season of the once powerhouse show after years after declining ratings. It is thought that Fox is essentially giving respect to the show by letting it continue for one final season, after it wraps up Season 14 this month. Once an untouchable, white hot gargantuan hit beating out every other show on television by millions of viewers, American Idol's ratings have cooled in recent…

Hamill will repeat the part of Batman's most outstanding adversary subsequent to stating that he had resigned the character. As most know, Hamill voiced The Joker through Batman: The Animated Series, the Batman Arkham computer games, and different tasks.At the point when Warner Bros reported at San Diego Comic Con that they would breath life into the Joker-driven realistic novel, Hamill said that he would leave retirement to voice the Joker in that…

    Man of Steel was really horrid and genuine, and it would appear that Batman v Superman is going to have about the same tone. Over on YouTube, client Albert Lopez chose to help things up by recutting the trailer for the up and coming motion picture with Always Sunny In Philadelphia's melody, Dayman.The juxtaposition lives up to expectations shockingly well, with Batman tackling the Nightman persona and Superman as Dayman. This is the thing that needs to happen: A Superman film composed by the people behind Always Sunny, or only a Superman-themed scene of the show. It would be crazy and…

In Japan, animation has permeated every facet of their society, and there have been numerous explicit pornographic films and series released.

They gave viewers two episodes in a row that were similar in tone and remained focused on accomplishing the cohesiveness that the show has always lacked. The human on human dynamic between Mason and the now crazed Pope finally comes to a head with the heavy weight of two men that literally hate each other. With that, Falling Skies finally grows some sharp teeth with a gritty episode…

    If there’s one thing we’ve done fairly consistently here at AS Movies & Games, it’s that we’ve talked a lot about SimCity. And I’ll be honest; I was pretty obsessed with the game at one time in my life (actually, I’ve been obsessed about it more than once). What is it about SimCity that makes it so compelling? I don’t really know. Maybe it’s the difficulty. Maybe it’s the fact that you have real bragging rights if you successfully build a Megalopolis. Not that anyone couldn’t do it, but not everyone does. I think the main appeal…

    Say what you will about Final Fantasy games. Sure, the series has been taking a beating by various critics in recent years, but it started out as an honest-to-god entertaining and endearing RPG series. The “Golden Years” may be long gone, and who knows if they will ever be recovered, but at least we will always remember the series for those moments of brilliance, which were not few and far between in the earlier years.

    Hey, you over there. Don’t even bother with this. Have you seen Lap Dance? If not, then don’t. There are plenty of bad movies out there, and I can certainly think of a few that were far worse than this one. Saying that, this isn’t a whole lot better. Don’t let the IMDb rating (6.2!?) fool you. This isn’t good entertainment (for reasons I’m about to explore), and despite your initial impressions, it doesn’t really have a message worth telling either. Anyway, let’s get down to business.

This week’s theme is 1970’s Car Movies. Thanks to the huge success of Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider in 1969, the 1970’s saw a large slew of car and road movies to try and replicate it’s success, many being cheap throwaway B-Movies, but some select ones, managed to emerge as some entertaining, original car films. 1.

    Oh look, another Will Ferrell comedy! This time around he is playing a step dad trying to win the affections of his step kids. His competition is the biological father played by Mark Walhberg. There is not much else to say here. They go through a “I can do anything better than you” contest. The kids are already biased against the step-dad. My gripe is that the trailer is trying to make the bio-dad with the slicked-back hair, poorly maintained beard, and slob-style clothes the cool guy. Daddy’s Home is directed by Sean Anders and John Morris. It has the supporting talent of Linda…

    Under the last government, the UK film council (which supported the funding, production and distribution of British films) was scrapped, as prime minister David Cameron cited that the initiative “wasn’t supporting films people British people want to see, like Harry Potter“. Subsequently, we have been told this has made it far harder for British filmmakers to get their movies made. As David Cameron’s Conservative government have recently been re-elected into parliament (this time as the sole governing party; last time they were part of a coalition), it is time to…

    Asif Kapadia isn’t the documentary filmmaker of our times, but he is one of the most timely. In the digital age where all information is online, he manages to make movies comprised almost entirely of footage that can be found on YouTube and somehow turn them into major events in documentary cinema. Since his (ever so slightly overrated) 2011 effort Senna, his style as a documentarian has stubbornly refused to change, yet the way he manipulates archive footage to create something new and horrifying is unparalleled, even if it frequently favours emotional manipulation over creating a deeper…

    We have come far since the time of the original Peanuts comic strips. It originates in a time when popular culture wasn’t so obvious with the allusions to sex or violence. It actually drew reference to how a child might interpret the adult world. That interpretation was apparently that of a trombone going “wa wa wa”. It’s a safe environment without serious themes or over the top comedy. Before the coming of the internet or smartphones, it was a time when kids actually went outside and played freely. This is opposed to the current suspicion of any and all strangers and belief…

    16 Jul 2015 | 9:00 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Let's forgo all of the groaners about good things coming in small packages and so forth. Ant-Man is a pleasing enough take on the superhero movie that it doesn't need any help, tired jokes or otherwise, from a hack like me. Ant-Man is neither overstuffed epic like the recent Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron, nor clever, brooding thriller a la Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Ant-Man is a perfectly modest adventure about a man out of his depth in all levels of life who finally finds his niche in the disorienting world of the sub-atomic. The reliably befuddled Paul Rudd, a…

Winslet plays Madame Sabine de Barra, an anachronistically liberated gardener hired by Monsieur André le Nôtre (Matthias Schoenaerts), landscaper to King Louis IV (Rickman). De Barra is to work on an outdoor ballroom at the King's gardens in Versailles. Her independence first perturbs Le Nôtre and his male contractors. But eventually his bewilderment gives way to curiosity and then romantic fascination with the confident gardener. Her…

    by Tony Dayoub There are Pixar films for kids, and there are Pixar films for grown-ups. Inside Out is definitely one for adults, and that grants it a kind of longevity. See, movies like Monsters, Inc., Cars, and even Toy Story have to depend on cutesy characters and sequels to extend their shelf life because, fun as they are, once you've seen them there isn't much there to revisit. Their concerns are those of children: finding what you're good at, fitting in among new friends, coping with a loss of popularity, etc. Movies like The Incredibles, Wall-E, and Up may still have cute characters but…

The fourth entry in the Mad Max series comes thirty years (!) after the last film, with the broken, post-apocalyptic highway patrolman formerly played by Mel Gibson now re-interpreted by Tom Hardy. And one of the things writer-director (and franchise mainstay) George Miller does with a better actor at the helm is give road warrior Max Rockatansky an inner life. Whereas Gibson's Max was filled with rage at the world of "fire and blood" that took his wife and child, Hardy's Max is literally mad. This Max tries to stay busy…

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is beating whole flocks of HYDRA soldiers with one swing of his hammer, Mjolnir. Captain America (Chris Evans) uses his motorcycle the way a gymnast would a balance beam, pushing off into acrobatic flips and bowling his enemies over before meeting the cycle again further down the line.

        Disney's Pixar Animation Studios bears quite a responsibility when it comes to the production of their timeless computer generated films--in part because they are solely responsible for the drastic re-visioning of the art of animation. (Hand drawn animated pictures not only suffered greatly once this new and refreshing technology came into existence, but they were pretty much forced into becoming obsolete.)    Yet, this somewhat overbearing sense of accountability can be directly attributed to the quality of the films themselves, as Pixar has been known to generate…
  • The Terminator ★★★★

    3 Jul 2015 | 12:37 pm
        To say that fate plays a role in the art of filmmaking would be an understatement to say the least; yet, it is this particular notion that reigns supreme when analyzing "The Terminator," a 1984 science fiction classic, and a film that would be unable to manage without its fast-paced action, frenetic energy, and an editing style that is characteristically hyperactive, even if it does appear silly at times.        In addition to placing the name of James Cameron (a relatively unknown director at the time) on a short list of filmmakers that warrant any hint…

    Hugh Jackman teases his final Wolverine film with new poster art and a request for fans... News While there are many reasons to look forward to X-Men Apocalypse—we certainly are—there is still the nagging sense of one aspect that is missing from the new mutant mash next year: Hugh Jackman as the Wolverine. The actor is still expected to probably return for an unconfirmed cameo, but it seems that Jackman is saving his berserker rage for a final untitled Wolverine 3 movie. And he wants fans’ input about how his time with an adamantium skeleton should end. “I’m putting on the claws,”…

    WWE's Dean Ambrose is a detective being hunted by corrupt cops in a locked down police HQ. That is the greatest thing I've ever heard. Trailer A little less than a year ago, WWE shot a storyline where Seth Rollins curbstomped Dean Ambrose’s head into a pile of cinderblocks. Ambrose was gone for a month, which he was actually using as a break to go film WWE Films’ latest action schlock Lockdown. He has no acting experience outside of his wrestling career, but he's awesome and dripping with unhinged charisma, so go for it. For months, there was no news about the movie..until now.

    Mia Hansen-Løve’s Eden explores Parisian dance music culture through the rise and fall of the French Touch movement with great skill and minimal melodrama – an authentic depiction of a paradise lost. Delivering a performance that suits the film’s style perfectly, Félix de Givry plays Paul, a DJ inspired by the career of the director’s brother, Sven Hansen-Løve. His descent is saddening, but it is difficult not to get caught up in the exhilaration when he first deciphers the chords of Liquid’s Sweet Harmony.

It is an authentic yet melancholy exploration of Paris’s dance music culture in the 1990s and 2000s, following the French House, Deep House and Garage clubs in which her brother, Sven was immersed. Indeed, Sven Hansen-Løve, of the DJ duo Cheers, serves as the inspiration for the character of Paul in this semi-biographical film. We caught up with him at Soho House a few hours before a screening of Eden to learn more about his creative input, his views on Hollywood’s depiction of DJs and, of course,…

While it's opening weekend box office gross didn't match up with its predecessors, it is making plenty of money globally having taken in over $133M in it's first 7 days, meaning it's already out-grossed its production budget. While we know that Paul Rudd's Scott Lang is going to appear in next year's Captain America: Civil War and that Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne will appear again at some point, the studios has yet to greenlight an Ant-Man sequel.

    The P.I.: tired, poor, and curious. The dame: tall, dark, and dangerous. The place: the City of Angels. The time: well, about that. The 1970s saw a rebirth of film noir. “New Hollywood” directors like Roman Polanski and Robert Altman, who had built reputations on risqué, irreverent, darkly psychological, proudly “modern” movies like Rosemary’s Baby (1968) and MASH (1970), suddenly decided to turn the clock back. They plucked classic characters like Philip Marlowe from late-night television, where the old movies still aired behind Abbott and Costello and Frankenstein repeats, and…

    With four installments spanning two decades, the best that could be said about the Mission: Impossible franchise up until now is that it never repeated itself. Like one of those reality competitions where chefs concoct separate dishes using the same ingredients, four different directors have given four different takes on an action movie recipe that uses gadgets, double-crosses, and Tom Cruise as its base. What the series lacked for movie-to-movie consistency it gained in personality. It’s a balance that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the fifth entry,ends up inverting, while…

    When it comes to blockbuster franchises like Star Wars, which keep secrets under lock and key while mounting massive productions around the world, there’s really no telling from where the next scoop is going to come. Today, it appears that the BBC has latched onto an interesting bit of information about Star Wars: Rogue One – it’s spotted that Sherlock veteran Jonathan Aris’ Spotlight page (basically LinkedIn for actors) lists him as playing “Senator Jebel” in the ensemble Star Wars Anthology film.

  • 16 Radical Movie Moments While Someone Played A Video Game

    27 Jul 2015 | 7:00 pm
    Video games have popped up in movies since they first made their start decades ago. They are a great visual representation of the times the film takes place and can offer some depth to a character or scene. For this list, we are looking only at movie moments where a video game is part of the scene not the premise of the story so films such as Wreck-it Ralph, The Wizard, Grandma’s Boy, and Pixels are out, to name a few. The rules are that the game has to be played while on screen and be an integral part of the moment. This isn’t a comprehensive list, only a few that we like…

    A Weekly Feature Taking A Closer Look At A Shared Moment In Two Films. This Week: A Bike Ride Bikes in movies have long been a staple. They can reveal a quirky character trait or hint at a philosophy or be the mechanism for some fun. Sometimes they are the whole focus of the film, such as Breaking Away and Quicksilver. This week, we take a closer look at two movies and one moment where a bike ride suddenly becomes the most memorable part of these films. Movie Title: E.T.

  • That Moment In Trollhunter (2010): Trapped in a Cave

    25 Jul 2015 | 9:40 pm
    Original review posted on A Tale Of Two Dans / This is a re-edited post for TMI REVIEW: In the high mountains of Norway, legends tell of creatures that live in deep caves and dark forests, grotesque beasts that can grow to immense size and feed on the blood of Christians. In modern times, these tales are dismissed as folklore and bedtime stories to frighten little children in their beds. Or so most think. On the rain-soaked roads of the Norwegian countryside, documentary film crew university students Thomas (Glenn Erland Tosterud), Johanna (Johanna Mørck) and their cameraman Kalle…

  • Film Review: Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation

    The fifth instalment in the franchise, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation is a formulaic but finely executed action thriller. Ethan Hunt is convinced of the presence of a shadowy organisation known as The Syndicate. When the IMF are called into question, it is down to Ethan and his small team to trace and combat the rogue group… The Mission: Impossible film franchise bucks the trend of movie series in that it seems to improve with every instalment.

The emotions in her mind attempt to navigate this upheaval in her life… Director and co-writer Peter Docter has created a wonderfully inventive film with Inside Out.

The core idea of having emotions as characters in a brain control room works remarkably well, as do the other aspects of the mind…

    21 Jul 2015 | 8:02 am

A disease that turns people into zombies has spread across major cities. When Maggie, a teenage girl from the Midwest, is infected, she is released into the custody of her father to spend her remaining days with her family… Although Maggie is a zombie movie, it does not fit the mould of this sub-genre. Instead, director Henry Hobson’s film is more of a drama than anything else. Maggie concentrates on family relationships in a difficult…

  • Film Review: Ant-Man

    13 Jul 2015 | 5:31 am
    Director Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man is a lot of fun. More humorous than many of the other Marvel films, Ant-Man is an entertaining ride. Recently released from prison, con-man Scott Lang struggle to find a job. Nevertheless, he seems a perfect candidate to Dr Hank Pym, who has invented a suit which allows humans to shrink to the size of an ant… The latest in Marvel’s universe of superheroes, Ant-Man is one of the lesser known characters to receive a stand-alone movie. With this comes less of a weight of expectation, and more freedom to be creative within the superhero genre.

  • Danny Collins: Reviewing a Life-Changing Letter

    25 Jul 2015 | 4:46 am
    With one of the greatest and influential actors of all time, ‘Danny Collins’ includes a strong performance by none other than Al Pacino. At the age of 75, Pacino can still deliver a high standard contribution to film, and it’s exciting to know. I feel that there is more to give from this talented star, but it is clear to suggest, that his best years have certainly gone.Read more »

    19 Jul 2015 | 5:19 am
    I have surprised myself with how long it has taken me to watch ‘Jurassic World’ but now I can say I’ve seen it. Was it worth the slight wait? I can definitely answer yes because by the end I was totally blown away. I have read mixed reviews since its release and I have wondered which side I would take after my own viewing, which in fact, is the positive side. I found myself comparing this feature to the original blockbuster directed by Steven Spielberg in 1993 and I’m not going as far as suggesting this modern hit was better, but it does contain some terrifying and gruesome imagery…

    11 Jul 2015 | 8:05 am
    Today’s review will be based on the widely popular ‘The Searchers’ set in 1956 and directed by John Ford. This film is perhaps one of the best movies I have ever seen and is certainly a huge recommendation I can give to you. The leading protagonist is portrayed by cinema icon John Wayne, who gives a performance of a lifetime in this incredible western drama. I want to touch on his character (Ethan Edwards) as this individual continues to be one of the most well-known characters in Hollywood history, and there are many reasons for it.Read more »

    I thought I’d review a different kind of flavour of film this week and talk about the 2008 British gangster movie ‘RocknRolla’. Directed by Guy Ritchie (Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch), ‘RocknRolla’ represents a very unique genre of film that is unlike any ‘gangster movies’ on the American market. The way in which Ritchie can master this particular trade allows us to see film we don’t often get to visualize.Read more »
  • Basic Instinct: The Great Battle of Psychology

    23 Jun 2015 | 12:01 pm
    ‘Basic Instinct’ has to be one of the biggest ‘erotic thrillers’ on the market. Sure it did kick up some controversy during the time of its release (1992), but what it did achieve was an enormous following when it flourished into a box office winner. Unfortunately it wasn’t all perfect, the plot could have taken a different turn to what we discover and that’s certainly the difference between it being a good film and not a great film.Read more »

  • How Hugh Jackman Is Hyping His Last Wolverine Appearance

    27 Jul 2015 | 9:57 pm
    When Hugh Jackman dropped the hammer that the untitled third Wolverine film would be his last appearance as the iconic character, the world of X-Men fans went nuts. While he loves the character dearly, the Australian actor feels that it's time to hang up the claws for good. But in true Wolverine fashion, he's not going to go out like a punk. Better still, he's asking his legion of fans to suggest what they want to see take place in Wolverine's final ride. My last time putting on the claws. What do you want to see happen? 50 words or less. ...Click To Continue Reading

  • Creepy Old Magazine Article About First Haunted House Is Becoming A Movie

    27 Jul 2015 | 6:59 pm
    Over the years, Hollywood has produced many haunted house films, and a great number of those have been based on "real life" events. That special subgenre will soon be expanding thanks to Fox Searchlight, which has just started development on Voices Through The Trumpet - a movie adapted from a 1936 New Yorker article that appears to be the first documented haunted house case. Deadline has the details on this newly developing project, though you can actually still read the original article on the New Yorker website (provided that you have a subscription to their archive).

    Inherent Vice [2014] is Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of a novel by Thomas Pynchon, who is apparently an author that nobody had been allowed to adapt before. But PTA did it, and who’s to say he failed? Not me for sure! Who can watch this movie and not fall in love with the antics and expressions of Joaquin Phoenix’s private eye Doc Sportello? Or just fall in love plain and simple with Katherine Waterston’s ghostly Shasta Fey, whose very presence is questionable? (I mean… she looks just like the narrator… whatever.)

    Trainwreck [2015] is the big screen acting and writing debut of the often lewd Amy Schumer. Her character, also named Amy (super original, right?), is a young, independent, and very sexual woman. She drinks, she gets high, she fools around, and she has no intention of stopping any time soon. Well, until she meets a super nice sports doctor (Bill Hader) and uncharacteristically starts falling for him. A genre reinvention? No, it absolutely is not. The main “gimmick” one could say is that the female lead is the sexually promiscuous one who falls for someone, rather than the male…

Jay must try to escape this curse by passing it along via intimate encounters, but she soon learns that it will go down the line, killing one by one, and that she may never outrun this thing that follows. Can you help me occupy my brain?

It's just Joe Dirt., calm down: Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 is Shaun of the Dead compared to Joe Dirt 2, it's not even that Joe Dirt 2 is bad (which it is), it's insulting.

    I’m a bit of a car nerd. I’m not as hardcore as I used to be, but I once worked in the pits at Daytona International Speedway during an SCCA event, and I spent many hours wrenching on my Honda Civic Si-R back in the day. Even though I drive a Jeep now (and rarely exceed 60 MPH), I can still appreciate a fine automobile. Or one that’s beat all to hell and looks like it was dipped in acid (I like me some rat rods.) To fellow auto enthusiasts and the uninitiated alike, I extend an invitation to check out “Skidmarks Show,” a new podcast that’s premiering July…

    Say what you want about Happy Madison Productions, but one thing no one intelligent can deny is that they deliver exactly what they’ve always promised: Adam Sandler and his friends acting like idiots for their own amusement… Oh, and also you might find it funny too. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 fits that to a T.   Kevin James is clearly having a blast. The reason people keep coming back to Happy Madison films isn’t the writing, or even the jokes. It’s plain and simple that the actors love what they are doing, and it’s infectious. Spend enough time watching someone…
