    There are moments in “Time is Illmatic” where the camerawork flows like the smoothest MC navigating a difficult verse; one marvels at the technique yet is never distracted from the story being told. Director One9 and his co-editors David Zieff and John Kane opt for a style that is neither kinetic nor flashy. Instead, they establish a sense of presence, of being so in the moment that even the occasional visual effect feels natural and unaffected. The camera roams the way the human eye would, yet it knows the power of stillness, of letting the image linger and rest. These documentarians…

    Sheila writes: Steven Soderbergh may be retired from movies, but he continues to be a very busy man, primarily with his Cinemax show "The Knick." But in the last couple of weeks, he also launched a conversation-starter on his own site, about the issue of "staging" scenes in film. Soderbergh writes that staging "(roughly defined) refers to how all the various elements of a given scene or piece are aligned, arranged, and coordinated." To show what he means, Soderbergh took a film with a high level of visual staging, "Raiders of the Lost Ark," stripped its sound, made it black-and-white, and…

    “Is that the one with all the Studebakers?”I found an old e-mail thread between me and Roger Ebert. It was an entertaining back and forth regarding “Life Itself,” which had just been published. I asked how it felt to be reviewed by other people, and speculated who would direct the movie version. Since many of my e-mails to Roger detailed some strange event that had befallen me, he used to joke that I should write my own memoirs and let Guy Maddin direct them. I voted for Cuba Gooding Jr. to play me.True to form, my latest misadventure was included in this thread. I had gone to see a…

    Roger’s review of “Mr. Magoo”.Why did I choose this piece of writing? Asking a lifelong devotee of Roger Ebert’s written criticism what his or her favorite review would be is sort of like asking Hitchcock to name his favorite blonde or Michael Bay to identify his favorite explosion. It simply cannot be done. I can, however, specify the one Ebert review that I actually know by heart. It wasn’t a conscious effort on my part to commit his half-star review of Stanley Tong’s miserable 1997 vehicle for Leslie Nielsen, “Mr. Magoo,” to memory. It just happened naturally after spending…

    Peter Sobczynski
    1 Oct 2014 | 6:54 am
    "Men, Women and Children" is a film that wants to make a grand and profound statement about where we are as a society today: how modern technology has affected human relationships by showing how the very tools theoretically designed to bring people together has instead driven them further into their own individual online worlds filled with hardcore pornography, violent video games, potentially dangerous chat-mates and whatever that Tumblr thing is. A potentially interesting premise is handled so badly that what might have been a provocative drama quickly and irrevocably devolves into the…

    David Fincher directed two actors who are directors in their own right in his new film “Gone Girl,” but Tyler Perry was more than happy to take the backseat and allow Fincher to do his thing. Lead star Ben Affleck may have won a best director Golden Globe and best picture Oscar for “Argo,” but Perry has over a dozen directorial credits under his belt — many of which are for films that also see him donning a fat suit or a dress — and he was still in awe of Fincher's style behind the camera.

    Walt Disney Productions If you were a teenager or adjacent to a teenager anytime since 1999, you are likely familiar with writer Stephen Chbosky and his tear-stained book found in the back of many a geometry classroom, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” It’s the epitome of teen angst, the coming-of-age story about an introverted boy named Charlie and the events that he goes through — some normally adolescent, some traumatic — during his freshman year of high school. You know, just a great time. The book was adapted into a film by Chbosky in 2012, so if you…

    Shout! Factory Sometimes I think Hollywood is directly screwing with me, personally. Recently I compiled a list of the comedies from the 1980s that couldn’t be made today. Big was one of the 10, and the feature itself was inspired by a commemorative piece for its 25th anniversary from a year earlier. At that time I’d written, “We can’t be sure that this movie won’t be remade anytime soon, but we can be sure it won’t mean as much after the careers of Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Will Ferrell and others of their ilk.” Well, now suddenly there are plans to remake…

Moverman and Gere filmed this scene – and others like it – guerilla style, not shutting down streets or blocking off sets, simply sending Gere into the fray in costume and character. Few people noticed that the older homeless gentleman asking them for change was actually Richard Gere, and even those that gave him money…

    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.

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

    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.

  • Ben Affleck May Lead 'The Accountant' Thriller for Warner Bros. Next

    Ethan Anderton
    1 Oct 2014 | 1:09 pm
    After directing the Best Picture winning Argo for Warner Bros., it seems like actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck is getting comfortable over there. His next directing gig is supposed to be Live by Night at the studio whenever he's done with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (also at Warner Bros.), and now he's lining up another starring role over there too. Variety reports Affleck is currently in talks to lead the action thriller The Accountant, based on an original script by Bill Dubuque, the man responsible for writing The Judge staring Robert Downey Jr. Warrior director Gavin O'Connor is…

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:37 pm
    "There's no slacker in that slacker!" We've been patiently waiting for this one. There's a documentary about filmmaker Richard Linklater being released this fall (in November) titled simply 21 Years: Richard Linklater, looking back at the first 21 years in his directing career - from Slacker to Boyhood. The doc features interviews with everyone from Matthew McConaughey to Jack Black to Jason Reitman to Kevin Smith, and many of them pop up in this trailer. It's perhaps mere coincidence that Linklater seems to be having a landmark year, with Boyhood in theaters now, Before Midnight still…

  • Kevin Hart Joins Colin Firth for The Intouchables' American Remake

    Ethan Anderton
    1 Oct 2014 | 11:50 am
    A remake of the hit French film The Intouchables has been brewing since 2012 when Chris Tucker was in talks to take the role originated by Omar Sy and British actor Colin Firth was rumored to be attached. Since then directors like Tom Shadyac and Paul Feig have been linked to the project, but we're not sure who's supposed to get behind the camera now. However, a report from French site Allocine (via The Playlist) reports that Firth is still in the film, and comedian Kevin Hart will be taking the co-starring role. Does that mean this is going to become less of a drama and more of a straight-up…
  • Is Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski's Next Project 'Indiana Jones 5'?

    Well, here's something that's interesting and a little bit flimsy all at the same time. Ever since Disney picked up the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount Pictures to complete their acquisition of properties from Lucasfilm, there have been rumors of both continuing the adventure with Harrison Ford or maybe rebooting the franchise with someone like Bradley Cooper. Neither option has proven to have any solid development, but there's a curious mention of Indiana Jones 5 in a Variety article (via SlashFilm) that gives a crash course in cinematography from some of the top names in the…

  • The Films of David Fincher Ranked: From ‘Alien³’ to ‘Gone Girl’

    Russ Fischer
    1 Oct 2014 | 12:30 pm
    David Fincher began his directorial career making music videos for some of the biggest talents in pop music. Beginning with Alien³ in 1992, his work in features has combined a drive for technical achievement off-screen with a consistently recognizable interest in detail-oriented obsession on-screen. He is a consummate craftsman, but one with an uncanny ability to lay his finger right on the cultural pulse. Together, those talents result in films which have gone beyond reflecting cultural attitudes, to defining them. With the release of his latest film, Gone Girl, we’ve taken the…

    Warner Bros. live action superhero film, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, doesn’t hit theaters until March 2016 but the animated equivalent will be here a year earlier. Justice League: Throne of Atlantis will hit Blu-ray and DVD in early 2015 and serves as a sequel to the film Justice League: War.

    Officially, Robert Downey Jr. is only contacted to play Iron Man one more time. He’s already completed next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and then he’ll shoot The Avengers 3, whenever that ends up happening. However, the proposition of an Iron Man 4 is something the actor has been very coy about. He’s said things that hint he won’t return, then softened those statements considerably. With his latest film, The Judge, hitting theaters soon, Downey is once again under fire about his iconic role as Tony Stark and a new quote definitely makes it sound like…

    "Yeah, I think I'm back," Keanu Reeves' mutters in this second trailer for John Wick. And while I'm not sure he's been gone, exactly, but the general sentiment about John Wick when it screened to an overwhelmingly positive response at Fantastic Fest - seriously, I don't think I know anybody who saw it there and didn't like it - was, "Hell yeah, he's back."He's back with a big case of guns, to be exact, and a hyper kinetic action film that hands the controls over to key members of Reeves' stunt team on the Matrix films and they're clearly doing what they do best.

    If there were any remaining questions about the status of Lisandro Alonso as one of the most important and brave contemporary filmmakers, Jauja answers them all. With a star like Viggo Mortensen as a magnet for those who otherwise would not dare to look, Jauja is at the same time a change and an ongoing search for the Argentine filmmaker. It is a change insofar as Alonso plunges a little bit more into narrative and gives more room for dialogue than in his previous work. The film is set at the end of the 19th century in the Patagonian desert. We observe a group of soldiers and surveyors who…

Moreover, even if not everything Luc Besson puts out wins us over, even when he isn’t great, he’s not great in fun and interesting ways. Unfortunately, we didn’t really get what we were after here, despite the fact that it started out pretty solid.

    Kingsman: The Secret Service is a film that makes it difficult to settle on a level of expectation. That isn’t surprising if you consider the Matthew Vaughn connection, because it was pretty tricky to figure out where you were when walking into Kick-Ass too. Colin Firth is a secret agent who takes on a prodigy that no one believes in, and there’s nothing more obvious about the trailer than how closely it resembles the feel and plot path of a comic. Well, and it also looks crazy fun. Vaughn already took his shot at turning superheros upside-down, now it’s the spy genre, and…

    Hulu‘s original content doesn’t get the attention it deserves, but things may change soon as Stephen King and J.J. Abrams join the mix. They’ve announced a series order for the nine-episode event based on King’s 11/22/63. The alt-history novel that surrounds the Kennedy assassination is not only a great story, and one that King himself believes fits the format, it will be an interesting series that may open some doors. There are a lot of alt-history works that I’d like to see, whether as series or films, and something has to sell the genre to the money people.

    How to Get Away with Murder Review When I reviewed Scandal, I basically related the idea that I thought few shows had ever been as convinced of the general stupidity of the viewing public, but I’d also like to buy stock in it. How to Get Away with Murder is clear evidence that I was unaware just how far that envelope could be pushed. The show is created and written by Pete Nowalk, also of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal fame, and Shonda Rhimes serves as executive producer, but it’s her name you’re going to hear pushed. The series opens with four people frantically trying to…

On the other hand, that’s a good sign for the popularity of returning shows, even if some of them may be pushing their luck at this point. Sticking with shows that work is great, but at some point we’re milking things, and don’t actually have fresh ideas to work into the routine.

  • All That Jazz

    Alan Bacchus
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:42 pm
    The influence of Fellini’s 8 ½ is clear in Bob Fosse’s own memoir-like fictional film. The story of a theatre director under immense pressure to make his next show a hit, while under the usual pressures of the business, told with a mixture of fantasy and realism is cut from the same mould as Fellini’s great picture. The creative evolution of Fosse’s work from 'Sweet Charity', 'Cabaret' and 'Lenny' seems to culminate in this overly ambitious yet invigorating explosion of cinema.All That Jazz (1979) dir.

    The Bresson brand of neo-realism is perhaps exemplified best with this unconventional character study of a Parisian thief desperately in need to self-fulfillment. Remarkably Bresson's seemingly simple approach uncluttered by the elements of traditional cinematic narrative allows the master filmmaker to create as much uncompromising tension as anything in Alfred Hitchcocks's filmography.

    After rebooting his career with two small scale earth-bound pictures, The Wrestler and Black Swan, to my surprise Aronofsky launched back into big idea cinema with the previously unfilmed biblical story of Noah and the Great Flood. It’s a strange mix of epic swagger and Hollywood heroism and the intellectual cinematic gymnastics which Aronofsky has been known for. Ultimately it’s mildly rewarding and nothing of the intense feelings of emotion he made his name for in his more successful pictures.Noah (2014) dir.

  • DVD review: 'Wonderwall: Collector’s Edition’

    28 Sep 2014 | 8:38 pm
    Director Joe Massot, who later made Led Zeppelin’s “The Song Remains the Same,” was smart enough to hire George Harrison to write the score (Ringo Starr and Eric Clapton helped out) and cast Irish-born Jack MacGowran, a stage actor who became famous for his film-comedy pieces. [...] Jane Birkin emerges as the hot number of the professor’s dreams, and he must try to save her life as his fantasies merge into reality. None of it makes sense, but Harrison’s music, plus examples of the psychedelic art of Marijke Koger, held my attention for the 74-minute duration of the director’s cut…
  • '20,000 Days’ review: Wildly imaginative

    By David Lewis
    25 Sep 2014 | 4:44 pm
    The wildly imaginative tour de force opens with an intense, lightning-quick series of images from the life of musician and cult hero Nick Cave, taking us on a time-traveling montage that leads to the Australian rock star’s 20,000th day — roughly 55 years. The directors, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, seem to be in some sort of magical sync with Cave, who has helmed the Bad Seeds since the 1980s. There are moments — particularly when Cave talks to some of his fellow musicians — that appear intended more for Cave devotees than casual observers. [...] overall, this is a beautifully…
  • 'Tracks’ review: Mysterious but sublime

    Why would a woman walk 2,000 miles across the remote outback desert in Australia alone? “So I had made a decision, which carried with it things that I could not articulate at the time,” Robyn says. Based on a true story, “Tracks,” directed by John Curran, taps into something deeply mysterious and contradictory about humans: the need for connection amid an intense desire for solitude. From the opening image, we get the feeling that something haunts Robyn as she sets about on what seems like a crazy (and possibly suicidal) trek across the outback with no one but four camels and her dog.

    The filmmaker (the daughter of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy) mixes riveting, and mostly unfamiliar, archival footage with recent recollections of Americans and some Vietnamese who saw the “last days” firsthand. Most of us assumed this event took place at the embassy, but the film points out that the building was actually the CIA station chief’s residence. An envoy of the old school, Martin, whose wife’s son was killed in Vietnam, was almost perversely resistant to the idea that South Vietnam would fall, even when that eventuality became obvious to everyone else. The film offers interviews…

In Don’t Mess With Pops movies, a peaceful man that any Baby Boomer can tell is in his prime — but that young people have the temerity to think of as a geezer — quietly takes abuse until he snaps and starts killing everybody in sight. [...] Denzel Washington gets in on the action, loping into rooms as only he can, his face apparently placid but his eyes strangely dead, just an average guy doing his…

    I was out of town at the end of this past August and have a sizable backlog of unanswered questions and comments. It may take me two or even three weeks to catch up with them. I am not complaining: on the contrary, I am delighted to have correspondents from Sweden to Taiwan. Today I will deal with the questions only about the two most recent posts. Kiss Our regular correspondent Mr. John Larsson took issue with my remark that kiss has nothing to do with chew and cited some arguments in favor of the chew connection.

  • Can Cameron capture women’s votes?

    1 Oct 2014 | 3:30 am
    After the Scottish Independence Referendum, the journalist Cathy Newman wrote of the irony that Cameron – the man with the much reported ‘problem’ with women – in part owes his job to the female electorate in Scotland. As John Curtice’s post-referendum analysis points out, women seemed more reluctant than men to vote ‘yes’ due to relatively greater pessimism of the economic consequences of a yes vote. The Scottish vote should remind Cameron and the Conservative strategists who advise him of a very clear message: ignore women voters at your peril. For several decades after UK…
  • On the importance of independent, objective policy analysis

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:30 am
    I have written about the dangers of making economic policy on the basis of ideology rather than cold, hard economic analysis. Ideologically-based economic policy has laid the groundwork for many of the worst economic disasters of the last 200 years. The decision to abandon the first and second central banks in the United States in the early 19th century led to chronic financial instability for much of the next three quarters of a century. Britain’s re-establishment of the gold standard in 1925, which encouraged other countries to do likewise, contributed to the spread and intensification of…
  • Setting the scene of New Orleans during Reconstruction

    Daniella Frangione
    30 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    The Reconstruction era was a critical moment in the history of American race relations. Though Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation made great strides towards equality, the aftermath was a not-quited newly integrated society, greatly conflicted and rife with racial tension. At the height of Radical Reconstruction, in June 1870, seventeen-month-old Irish-American Mollie Digby was kidnapped from her home in New Orleans — allegedly by two Afro-Creole women. In The Great New Orleans Kidnapping Case: Race, Law, and Justice in the Reconstruction Era, Michael A. Ross offers the…

    Austin City Limits is the longest running musical showcase in the history of television, spanning over four decades and showcasing the talents of musicians from Willie Nelson and Ray Charles to Arcade Fire and Mos Def. The show is a testament to the evolution of media and popular music and the audience’s relationship to that music, and to the city of Austin, Texas. In Austin City Limits: A History, author Tracey E. W. Laird takes us behind-the-scenes with interviews, anecdotes, and personal photographs to pay homage to this landmark program. In doing so, she also illuminates the overarching…

    Observations on film art

  • Of horses, avalanches, and architecture

    1 Oct 2014 | 10:18 am
    Of Horses and Men (2013). DB here, with some first impressions of this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival. We alternate days of rain and days of sunshine, but crowds still keep turning up. Some screenings are packed full, and most of those we’ve visited are solidly attended. Herewith some notes on three of the most intriguing movies I’ve seen so far.   The getting of wisdom La Sapienza (2014). The last Eugene Green movie I saw was The Portuguese Nun, which I discussed in a 2010 entry. His latest, La Sapienza, is more user-friendly, somewhat closer to American…

But we had to jump the gun, so to speak, and show you this picture of a gentleman whom we met on our way into our hotel tonight. Mr. Eastwood was very courteous and even suggested Kristin join him in the shot. A good omen for the rest of our stay.

    Richard Lester and Peter von Bagh, Cinema Ritrovato Bologna, June 2014. DB here: Kristin and I have just learned of the death of Peter von Bagh. Critic, historian, programmer, and filmmaker, Peter was an indefatigable lover of cinema whose generosity and kindness was a model for all of us. He made the Midnight Sun Film Festival an obligatory stopping point for the world’s great directors, and as artistic director of the Cinema Ritrovato festival in Bologna he helped push that event to its prominence in world film culture.

In a discussion on ReelFanatics Michael and I consider some ideas about cinematic storytelling. My allergies gave me some Clintonesque hoarseness, and there are some things I’d rephrase better if I were writing them down, but maybe you’ll find something of interest there.

  • Masterpieces #28: The World According to Garp

    Dave Brown
    1 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    About The World According to Garp (1978)This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields–a feminist leader ahead of her times. This is the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes–even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with “lunacy and sorrow”; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. In more than thirty languages, in more than forty countries–with more than ten million copies in print–this novel provides almost…

    Dave Brown
    30 Sep 2014 | 3:28 am
    George Washington (2000) Over the course of one hot summer, a group of children in the decaying rural South must confront a tangle of difficult choices. An ambitiously constructed, elegantly photographed meditation on adolescence, the first full-length film by director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) features remarkable performances from an award-winning ensemble cast. George Washington is a startling and distinct work of contemporary American independent cinema. Verdict: 7/10 Go to top Fear and Desire (1953) An existential war film that is often compared with Kubrick’s PATHS OF…

    The War That Ended Peace: The Road to 1914 (2013) The First World War followed a period of sustained peace in Europe during which people talked with confidence of prosperity, progress, and hope. But in 1914, Europe walked into a catastrophic conflict that killed millions, bled its economies dry, shook empires and societies to pieces, and fatally undermined Europe’s dominance of the world. It was a war that could have been avoided up to the last moment—so why did it happen? Beginning in the early nineteenth century and ending with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand,…

  • From WWTW to … Hollywood in Toto

    7 Sep 2014 | 8:34 pm
    My movie blogging journey has taken a serious turn. I started What Would Toto Watch? in 2007, hoping to secure some Internet turf and share my love for the latest, greatest movies. Turns out I enjoyed blogging about film as much as seeing the latest Oscar contenders. A few years later that passion helped me score a full-time gig as assistant editor at Big Hollywood. I was thrilled, but something still gnawed at me. I felt like my work at WWTW wasn’t finished. I started this blog with modest intentions, but by the time it landed me a “real” job I was sorry to see it go.

    I didn’t know what to expect when I bought the domain name back in 2007. My wife and I had just moved to Denver from D.C., leaving behind Beltway traffic, exhorbitant home prices and a great gig at The Washington Times. I simply figured I needed a nook on the Web to call my own, and perhaps one day I’d wrangle a full-time gig out of it. Who knew it would take four years and hundreds of blog posts before that happened? Starting Monday, I’ll assume the position of Assistant Editor at Big Hollywood alongside my new tag team partner John Nolte. I’ll…

  • ‘Dream House’ – Big stars, no reviews

    28 Sep 2011 | 6:11 am
    Horror movie fans rarely see A-listers in their favorite genre. Occasionally we’ll get a Jack Nicholson (“The Shining”) or Anthony Hopkins (“Magic”) wallowing in the genre, but we’re mostly stuck with unknown stars angling for their big break. To be blunt, there’s a better chance of Leonardo Di Caprio endorsing Ron Paul for president than seeing him in a “Saw” sequel. That makes the new horror film “Dream House” such a tease. The movie co-stars Daniel Craig, Oscar-winner Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts in an update on the standard…
  • Toto’s Movie Review: ‘Moneyball’ (Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill)

    23 Sep 2011 | 9:58 pm
    Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane tried to reinvent the national pasttime by casting aside a century of sports wisdom. The new “Moneyball,” based on Beane’s tumultuous tenure with the California club, sticks to the basics. Fine acting. Whipsmart dialogue. A Cinderella team rewriting the history books. Yes, the tale of the 2002 Oakland A’s doesn’t supply a ticker tape ending, but for most of “Moneyball” reality provides more than enough dramatic oomph to power one of the better baseball films in recent memory. Brad Pitt shelves his actorly…

The film written and by visionary directors The Wchowskis stars Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton and Tim Pigott-Smith in a revolutionary sci-fi adventure. Here’s more about the film. “Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine…

  • So There’s Going to Be a ‘Tetris’ Movie for Some Reason

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:33 pm
    Sure, stacking geometric shapes is a time-honored way to kill a few minutes on your iPhone or old graphing calculator, but some Hollywood studio executives believe that Tetris actually warrants an entire feature-length movie. According to The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog, Threshold Entertainment is somehow adapting the classic video game into a big-budget adventure film. The studio’s CEO told the paper, “It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie. This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.” Aside from not…

    Christine Caine is one of Hillsong Church's most influential leaders, and she's looking to pass along what she's learned to other Christian women under the guise of Propel, a training program for working Christian women. Created in partnership with Liberty University, Propel will offer events, articles and video content for women in the marketplace. Caine created Propel as a response to what she sees as a lack of female-led conferences for women who work outside the home, and hopes that it will encourage working women who may feel forgotten in Christian circles ...
  • Report: Wildlife Populations Have Declined More Than 50% in 40 Years

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:08 pm
    A new Living Planet Index report from the London Zoological Society and the World Wildlife Foundation says the world’s populations of wild animals are an average of half the size they were in 1970. The index tracked the populations of more than 10,000 representative populations of species from 1970 to 2010 and showed a bigger decline than previously thought (prior studies estimated that populations had declined by 30 percent). The report sites human consumption—and the resulting habitat loss—as the main reason for the decline. According to the report, there are only 3,000 tigers left in…

    1 Oct 2014 | 10:40 am
    Healing after tragedy strikes is a long, hard process. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you're going through it. At the beginning of this year, I was still grieving the alleged murder of one of my dearest friends, and I was feeling hopeless that I could ever find peace and healing again in life. My creativity and passion for life had shriveled up, and my heart was completely numb. At some point, all of us will feel the impact of tragedy—whether it’s pain from our past that gets brought back up, the death of a loved one, or even just the onslaught of horrific events around…

  • Review: The BoxTrolls

    Dave Taylor
    25 Sep 2014 | 11:01 pm
    Children’s films are generally pretty darn benign, with little tension and few intense visual effects or scenes. Yeah, sure, the hero’s in peril from the monster or bad guy, but most children’s films take the Disney way out of 95% sweet, fun, light and 5% tension. Don’t want to scare the kiddies, after all. Except drama is all about tensions, and great storytelling is all about the protagonist being threatened and having to figure out how to overcome. A few years ago, the stop-motion animated feature Coraline offered just such a dark vision, a compelling and visually…

    It’s a dystopic, post-apocalyptic future and teens are being picked on again. They’re not the keeper of the community’s memories, they aren’t supposed to kill each other, they’re just stuck in this massive concrete and steel edifice with only their own wits and guile to make it through each day. In fact, some of the teen boys — and it’s all boys, for no obvious reason — have been in The Glade for years, trying to eke out sustenance while avoiding The Maze. Yes, in case you haven’t figured it out, they’re all stuck in the middle of…
  • Who wins: Jesse Stone vs. Alex Cross?

    Dave Taylor
    17 Sep 2014 | 11:12 am
    This is a guest piece by film buff Alexander Bailey… The moment I heard about the Jesse Stone movie series, I was instantly reminded of the Alex Cross book and movie series. I did what any self-respecting movie lover would do and fired up Netflix to compare them. The first film in the Stone series is Stone Cold (2005) and the first Cross film is the self-titled Alex Cross (2012). The two have an almost eerily similar premise: A bad to the bone, take nothing from nobody, super detective fights a vicious serial killer who makes the hunt personal. The stories take you through the cat and…

    6 Sep 2014 | 9:48 am
    As part of the Denver Film Critic Association I have apparently gotten myself into something that I might well regret: helping out a school writing class by reading and offering feedback for some young film critics. Their assignment: review and contrast the films Emma (1996) and Clueless (1995). Which means I also need to watch both these films. Yikes. My teen daughter laughed and said that Clueless is hilarious, which worries me a little bit, but she also hasn’t seen Emma, so at least I have a designated co-victim for the cinematic extravaganza. Still, what am I in for? Here’s…

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

So for the entire month of October, we will be dealing with horror fare that you can find in the “New Release” section of Netflix or (if you still have one) your local video store. So instead of nostalgic appreciations and recommendations, this promises to be more of a “the good, the bad, and the ugly” kind of affair. Hopefully more good than bad and ugly, but that remains to be…

    For decades, comic book readers have debated which fan-favorite superheroes would come out on top – if they were to face-off. “Who would win in a fight between [insert superhero] versus [insert superhero]?” has provided fans countless hours of friendly (and sometimes not-so-friendly) dialogue - as readers ponder which hero (or villain) is at the top of the comic book food chain. Sometimes the match-ups cross publisher lines (Who would win in a fight between Green Arrow and Hawkeye?), other times they remain in-house – as is the case with the upcoming superhero…

Not only was he teaming up with James Franco again, it’s always a treat to watch the comedy genius in action especially behind the scenes. Rogen co-directs The Interview with his childhood buddy, Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, Pineapple Express), drawing from a script that the pair co-penned with former Daily Show executive producer, and South Park writer, Dan Sterling. The duo who refuse to be pigeon-holed are touching on a new genre: Dr.

Case in point: Edge of Tomorrow, which was released to rave reviews this past June, with many praising Doug Liman’s latest for being an entertaining thrill-ride that represents what audiences love to see at the multiplex. As many know, Edge couldn’t translate its strong word-of-mouth into hefty domestic profits, finishing in second during its opening weekend before engaging on a long, slow crawl to $100…

We have to be clear about this: There are bad movies; there are reprehensible movies; there are movies that make you consider taking out a contract on the entire DGA, just to be sure that never in the future of humankind will there be a chance that such an affront to common decency could again be committed.

A brilliant comedian with a lightning-fast mind, Lewis has bested interviewers with far more supple intellects than yours truly.

After all, TWC’s previous effort in this arena was Vampire Academy, and that blatant mish-mosh of Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, and whatever else has been luring adolescent females to the theaters didn’t go down too smoothly.

After taking a few weeks off, your tanned & rested hosts Jerry & Mark return with a powerhouse episode of The Horror Movie Show — now with 100% more Vitamin C! That should end the rumours the show causes scurvy. The guys begin by taking a baseball bat to the belaboured brains of The Purge: Anarchy, written & directed by James DeMonaco, the same dude who made the first in this series of fantasy flicks. While some might say this is brutality for the sake of ticket sales, there is more to this look-see into an evening…
  • Podcast 154 — X-Men: Days of Future Past, Blade Runner: The Final Cut, Sorcerer (’77), We Are What We Are (’10), Monsters Wanted

    30 Jul 2014 | 3:43 pm
    Blade Runner still sharp as a razor Hello, good day & welcome to The Horror Movie Show, hosted as ever by those madcap zanies Jerry & Mark. This episode features a variety of sci-fi & horror titles, so there is something for everybody. Or at least some body for every thing. The guys begin the show talking about the newest X-Men movie, the big-budget FX-fest one would expect. Is it better than one might reasonably expect? Is the Pope an agnostic? It’s possible. A chestnut from the long-ago-and-far-away youth of Mark & Jerry, director Ridley Scott‘s final kick at the…

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

This week the guys are discussing several movies by well-known actor & pretty boy Chris Evans. Beginning with Captain America: The First Avenger, our hosts naturally progress to the newer Captain America: The Winter Soldier. From there it’s an easy segue to a discussion of 2012′s The Avengers.

  • TCM Preview October 2014 – A Look Inside My Now Playing Guide

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

    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraToday is September’s final Pre-Code Friday on TCM and the schedule includes this title, DOWNSTAIRS, playing at 8:00 am ET. Other titles I’ve covered on the site that are playing today include MIDNIGHT MARY (1933) with Loretta Young at 4:00 pm and PENTHOUSE (1933) with Warner Baxter and Myrna Loy at 11:15 pm.

  • She Had to Say Yes (1933) Starring Loretta Young

    Cliff Aliperti
    22 Sep 2014 | 9:59 pm
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraIt’s not spoiling anything to discuss the ending of She Had to Say Yes, because the movie doesn’t resolve much in the end anyway. Loretta Young’s Florence has two men in her life. I won't tell you which one she winds up with, because it doesn't matter, they're basically the same. These fair-weather fellows both love her when they believe she is virtuous, but their idea of love instantly dissolves once they doubt that virtue. Doubt is easy, because a woman who has lost her innocence is no longer one to be worshiped,…

    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraDonahue was born January 3, 1899. He has to be gone, right? Yes, he’s been gone awhile. And that chase led to this post. Until this morning, a quick glance at IMDb's Joe Donahue page might lead you to believe that the 115-year-old Donahue was off cocooned somewhere planning his next feat of immortality. The page looked like this: I was certain I had uncovered Donahue's 1943 obituary when I posted this biography of the performer late last year. If the name doesn't ring a bell, Donahue is best remembered for dancing…

    Though the Dark Knight previously appeared on a set of stamps back in 2006, the US Postal Service have revealed (via USA Today) another set featuring the Caped Crusader to mark his 75th Anniversary. Consisting of five stamps, the series will showcase depictions of Batman from the Golden, Silver, Bronze and Modern ages. “Batman is the most popular Superhero of all time, and it is an honor to have the U.S. Postal Service feature the Caped Crusader on this new set of stamps in celebration of his 75th anniversary,” DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee says. “Batman has inspired and…

  • Newswire: Ben Affleck might star as a mild-mannered assassin in The Accountant

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:52 pm
    Undeterred by the backlash against his casting in that superhero movie, Ben Affleck is actively courting the disapproval of the pencil-pusher set as well. Variety reports that Affleck is in talks to star in an action thriller called The Accountant, which is ridiculous because everybody knows that accountants don’t come from Boston, only fire fighters and lobstermen. Adding insult to injury, Affleck’s presumably mild-mannered character will live a secret double life as an assassin, a clear violation of the AICPA’s code of professional ethics. Of course, Affleck is only in preliminary…

    Many had assumed, following the completion of the final book and its subsequent film adaptation, that the Twilight saga had run its course. However, something as incidental as “running out of source material” can’t keep the Twilight cross-platform marketing bonanza down. Variety reports that the presumed-dead franchise has risen from the grave in the form of five new short films based on characters from the series. Apparently not quite through manipulating its users’ emotions, the shorts will be presented exclusively on Facebook, where the official Twilight page has over 150 million…

    No matter how you look at it, the numbers are pretty stacked against young women who want to direct feature films. But rather than sit around and complain about it (as cathartic as that may be), a far more productive approach is for women (and men) who have made it in Hollywood to mentor promising female filmmakers and teach them what they have learned— a “young girls’ club,” if you will.The Horizon Award, a new initiative led by three big-name Hollywood producers, aims to do that by sending female film students and recent graduates to Sundance for an immersive crash course in the…

      Principles shape our priorities and keep us focused.         The RIGHT principles will guide you toward the life you always imagined.   Take a moment and write-down the most important principles you believe in. Don’t worry about these being well written or extravagant.  This is your private list of priorities – not a public list of super noble, unrealistic goals. As you compile the list, thoughts may pop into your head where your actions in the past didn’t jive with your principles.   How did these experiences turn out?  Probably not very…

        Don’t confuse confidence with self-esteem.           Confidence is how certain you feel about something.   Self esteem is how you feel about yourself.     For example…A movie star may be confident that he/she will attract others if they go out in public.  However, he/she can still have low self-esteem and feel bad about themselves. As we discussed in Secrets to Looking Attractive, improving your competence improves your confidence. Improving your confidence can improve your self-esteem. Unfortunately, many people lack a…

    Texting will never replace face-to-face conversations…   But don’t under-estimate the momentum it can build to attraction…     Poor texting skills will cripple your chances in dating.   Think about how many phone calls, voice mails, and emails that texting has replaced. Why is it so popular? Texting offers a great balance of almost real-time communication with the ability to proceed at your own convenience.  It’s more intimate than emails, yet everything is documented and easy to access. Compared to traditional telephone calls, texting is much…

Having invented a new product known as The Shower Buddy, the trio are riding high, and when Christoph Waltz’s slick investor enters the picture, things look as though they are going from strength to strength.

Deadline reports that Sony has hired Dave Callaham to write a script for the sequel, having previously worked on the likes of Doom and The Expendables. Better still is the news that Ruben Fleischer is in place to return to the director’s chair, although the report does make it clear that no deal has been officially struck at this stage. Plot-wise, there are no official details confirmed as yet, although when asked previously about his initial…

Things are looking particularly dire for Bryan this time out, with his wife (Famke Janssen) having been brutally offed, and all the evidence seeming to implicate him as the culprit. However, Mills is not a man to go quietly, and it isn’t long before he’s on the run from the authorities, while simultaneously trying to take his revenge on the real killers.

It had previously been rumoured that a fourth entry into the movie series could soon be on the cards, but it seems that Ratner has instead devoted his energies to establishing a series order with Warner’s TV arm. Scrubs and Cougar Town alumnus Bill Lawrence will co-write the new show with Blake McCormick, with the latter also on executive producer duties. The series will apparently stick closely to the…

    All good things must come to an end – at least temporarily. And for those of us who are experiencing colder weather, that good thing is this year’s outdoor movie season.

    It is always a good idea to have back up equipment for your outdoor movie theater system. Better safe than sorry, right? We can never fully rely on electronics, so it’s best to have the proper spare parts so you never miss a show. When Outdoor Movies handles event production, we make sure to bring a back up for every piece of equipment at the site.

  • Raised by Penguins? Bat nipples? George Clooney?

    20 Sep 2014 | 12:05 pm
    I wasn't fan of its predecessor, but this sequel gets a couple of things right where Batman failed.  It certainly isn't a great film, and I'm rather impressed these films made enough money that they made four of them.  In any case, I think Batman Returns may be the best film in this series.First things first, Tim Burton really toned down the "iconic shots" in this film and majorly increased the plot (i.e. it had a plot this time).  There are 2.5 villains: the Penguin...a monster played by Danny DeVito, Christopher Walken plays himself (actually he plays Max Shreck, a power…
  • Na na na na na na na na Batman! (1989 edition)

    6 Jun 2014 | 10:15 pm
    As a kid I remember watching the live action Batman (1989) and being very entertained.  It is probably because, as a kid, there wasn't much for me to think about or understand in the film. It is a highly stylized (for 1989), almost cartoonish version of Batman, with very weak characters and plot.  Michael Keaton does fine, as a rather bored Bruce Wayne, with some pretty funny one-liners.  His portrayal of The Batman, however, is a bland, kind of lame superhero.  But you know, even a lame Batman is cool.  I think it is that suit.The Batwing flying straight up....for no…

    It came out last month that Paul Rudd had been cast in the titular role of Edgar Wright's upcoming Marvel film, 'Ant-Man'.  While that would seem fairly straight forward, there was still a bit of mystery as to whom exactly he would be playing. See there have been two different men who carried the title "Ant-Man", Hank Pym and Scott Lang. In the Marvel comics Hank Pym is a genius scientist, a founding member of The Avengers and responsible for the creation of the main villain in the next Avengers film, Ultron. Scott Lang, on the other hand, began as a thief who stole the shrinking tech…

    While everyone on the awards circuit is praising J.K. Simmons' supporting turn as a villainous music teacher -- and rightfully so -- in "Whiplash," I wanted to take a moment to stick up for the film's seemingly forgotten leading man Miles Teller. Sure, Teller may be a bit young and not quite a household name yet, but I urge Oscar voters not to forget about him when it comes time to filling out their Best Actor ballots. -BREAK- Can J.K.

The categories also tend to award the same films: in the past 10 years, Mixing and Editing matched six times, including last year's pair of wins for "Gravity." -BREAK- Will 'Interstellar' be the 'grandest adventure' ever on film?

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

    21 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    Guardians of the Galaxy is among the many lesser-known Marvel properties and now it too has its own film adaptation. Since the series exists somewhat outside the Avengers and Spider-man franchises, this new world offers a fresh canvas compared to the tired superhero action genre, but the tricks and wonder are all the same. Exhibiting an unabashed sense of humor beyond structurally imperative comedic-relief, Guardians features the same cosmic rough-and-tumble as the X-Men and Iron Man action that becomes difficult to follow.

    18 Aug 2014 | 10:14 am
    Series of films portraying a single character’s life during different time periods is nothing new to cinema. Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, however, crafts a singular narrative about a young boy from kindergarten to his first weekend in college, and was produced for just a handful of days each year for twelve years. This production method required faith in the crew and a disciplined approach to keep the project alive, a concept that is truly visible in the film’s storyline.

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

    24 Sep 2014 | 9:23 am
    Many critics and fans are somewhat confused as how to understand, interpret, and digest the movie (or should we say movies) called ‘The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. You see, Ned Benson (writer and director) initially created two movies with the theme of a couple (and their families) that is goes through trauma, and how it impacts their lives. Both movies, aptly titled ‘Him’ and ‘Her’ tell the same story but from perspectives of the husband (Conor) and wife (Eleanor), played by James McAvoy and wife Jessica Chastain The movies were featured last year at the…
  • 20,000 Days on Earth: a Solid Work of Docufiction

    Chris D'souza
    22 Sep 2014 | 9:15 am
    20,000 Days On Earth is a unique investigation into the mind of an artist. It is not a documentary (or ‘rockumentary’) in the strictest sense of the word. It is sort of a biopic where the art of filmmaking overwhelms the journalistic aspect, so much so that Nick Cave’s interviewee in the documentary is not a journalist but a shrink, who in reality is a writer. The movie shows 24 hours in the life of the Nick Cave, his 20,000th day on Earth. Of course, the actual recording is definitely way more than 24 hours. The first 3 minutes show a fast-paced montage of Cave’s life…

    Perhaps one of the most common themes in independent movies is the bonding of siblings, especially twins. And if you run through the basic premise of the ‘Skeleton Twins’, you may yawn cliche. The story goes as follows: Milo (Bill Hader) and Maggie (Kristen Wiig) are twins that have become strangers to each other in their adult lives. However, as they experience personal tragedies (to the point where they consider suicide-this is where the film starts from), they finally come face-to-face and reunite. This leads to a series of contemplations of why their lives are as they are, and…
  • Dolphin Tale 2: the Inspiring Sequel

    Chris D'souza
    17 Sep 2014 | 9:03 am
    On the surface, it looks like that Dolphin Tale 2 was produced simply because of the commercial success of the first movie. ‘Dolphin Tale’ (2011) was the inspiring true story of Winter, an injured dolphin that was able to swim again thanks to a prosthetic tail. This made her the ‘star of the show’ at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, as she is the reason behind the (financial) success of the CMA. This is the theme of the second movie. Dolphin Tale 2 takes us back to Dr. Clay Haskett’s Clearwater Marine Aquarium with the same team from the previous movie, all…
  • Pawn Sacrifice: Another Nearly There Attempt by Edward Zwick

    Chris D'souza
    15 Sep 2014 | 1:24 pm
    Edward Zwick is one of the leading filmmakers in Hollywood but there is always something lacking in his movies. There is no doubt that he aspires for greatness with each venture but ends up falling short, often by a short margin. The latest in his line of ‘nearly there’ movies is Pawn Sacrifice, a thriller focusing on the aftermath of the Watergate Scandal and narrating the true story of chess player Bobby Fischer’s performance at the World Chess Championship in 1972. The film stars Tobey Maguire in the lead role, supported by Peter Sarsgaard, Sophie Nelisse, Leiv Schreiber…

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 134 The Exorcist

    28 Sep 2014 | 10:38 pm
    Time to have a chat with Captain Howdy this week when Matt and Mark review the horror classic The Exorcist. Continuing on with our pre-Halloween "The Horror..." marathon, we discuss the disturbing Friedkin masterpiece that has few, if any, parallels. The Exorcist is strangely a movie for skeptics by skeptics, taunting one to ask terrifying questions about humanity's existence. While many think the opposite of love is hate, the opposite of love is indifference, and the demon occupier Pazuzu/Captain Howdy epitomizes this anti-human element by brutally perverting an innocent twelve year girl,…
  • 133 Pieces

    21 Sep 2014 | 10:42 pm
    And we're back! The Horror... The Horror... this week we start off The Cult of Matt and Mark's horror movie marathon on the run up to Hell'oween with the grindhousey Pieces from 1982. A movie that defines the slasher genre in all of its cliche'd silliness. Mark is able to appreciate the films nuances, while Matt laments his inability to partake in Washington State's new-found freedom to herbally enhance for such cinematic exploitation. Nowadays, it has been out done by the horror auters it inspired (e.g. Eli Roth), it gives the gory gross out the old college try.Download:  133 Pieces
  • BONUS EPISODE: Chronophage Chapter 1

    8 Sep 2014 | 11:19 pm
    In a shameless act of self promotion and a gap-filler until Matt and Mark's Hello-ween film review marathon, Matt reads chapter one of his indie novel Chronophage under the pen name M.G. Churchill. An extremely unprofessional reading, be warned, but if you're yearning to hear Matt's drone, this may hold you over.Book Description: Zara's mind has been re-wired to do away with sleep, a requirement for piloting mankind's first interstellar star ship. Her new brain is not without side-effects, however. Between consciousness and a semi-lucid state called 'drift-diving,' reality splinters. Amnesia…
  • 132 The Passion of the Christ

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

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

    Do you remember when Boy Meets World was on, and you’d tune in on Friday nights (TGI fucking F, man), and sometimes you just happened to get a holiday-themed episode like “The Witches of Pennbrook”? I do. BMW was a huge part of my childhood, just like Family Matters and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and I remember watching this episode in particular when I was younger, because I remember weird nostalgic stuff like that when it deals with Halloween. “The Witches of Pennbrook” is about witches, of course; it’s also a very Eric-centric episode, not normally…

    The Aokigahara Forest is a place many people go to commit suicide. Perhaps it is the call of nature that gives them solace as their final resting place; the way the trees form a puzzle can make it difficult to find the way back, giving those unsure if they can commit suicide a reason for not exiting. There’s a peace inside those trees, knowing that others have done the same thing, all of them so far removed from their lives that there’s a bond formed. Likewise, the forest is also a place of deep sadness – so many people, unable to continue their lives or see meaning, have…

  • The worst film I ever saw… Inbred.

    1 Sep 2014 | 12:33 pm
    When people find out you’re a film lover, they tend to ask you what your favourite film is. When you explain your taste is more for the gruesome realms of cult and exploitation cinema, their next question is usually what the worst film you’ve ever seen is. Which is a question I can usually answer much more quickly. A few years back, when writing for Eat Sleep Live Film, myself and the site’s other co-founders sat down to watch Alex Chandon’s Inbred at FrightFest. Never have I been so incensed by a movie and I doubt very much I ever will again. Just the other day,…

It was an interesting race, but despite an early lead by Wizards of the Lost Kingdom, then The Sisterhood, The 13th Floor really charged out in front. In the end, it was the clear winner, with over 38 per cent of the vote. There were no clearly unpopular choices though, so who…

    Five years after the original was released, Sony Pictures is finally moving forward with Zombieland 2 with word coming from Deadline that the studio has tapped Dave Callaham to pen the script. Callaham received a story credit for this year’s Godzilla film and also co-wrote 2010’s The Expendables. More recently, he worked on a rewrite of Marvel’s Ant-Man and wrote the screenplay for a dark comedy called Jackpot, which is reportedly what nabbed him the job to script Zombieland 2. He'll work closely with Ruben Fleischer, who will be returning as director. In 2013, the franchise made a…

    Shawn Francis
    27 Sep 2014 | 4:30 pm
    Seeing as zombies aren’t my favorite movie monsters I was surprised that the last zombie flick I added to my collection was John Gulager’s Zombie Night (2013), and it’s not because I don’t like Gulager. He did a masterful job with Feast (2005) and a not bad job with Feast II (2008), it’s just the distributor who footed the bill for Zombie Night, The Asylum, I’m not a fan of. But they are showing some promise these days with their Syfy channel zombie series, Z Nation, which so far I’m a fan of.

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

    I’ve always had a slight fascination with the doppelganger concept, It’s probably an extension of my more intense fascination with shape-shifters in general, and this year there were two movies that came out directly concerning doppelgangers. Earlier in the year it was Enemy (2013) with Jake Gyllenhaal and based on a Portuguese novel called, “The Duplicated Man,” but according to Wikipedia, “It was translated into English and published as The Double in 2004.” Now we have The Double (2013) another “double-goer” flick this time with Jesse Eisenberg and another that was also…

    I was in 7th grade when this kid I knew told me about Without Warning. Rob was also the one responsible for clueing me in to the existence of Fangoria. His father pretty much took him to all the new horror movies coming out and in turn the following Monday in school he would tell me all about them. This was the era of the slasher, so I heard more about those kind of movies than any other, but occasionally a “monster movie” would come along, like The Boogens (1981), The Being (1983), The Beast Within (1982), Alien (1979), or Without Warning and I’d be absolutely amazed at what he…

Five of them were made and four of them were scheduled to roll out that year. Three were major theatrical releases (DeepStar Six, Leviathan, The Abyss) while the remaining two (The Rift, Lords Of The Deep) were straight-to-video and/or cable. I saw all of them but Lords Of The Deep. I believe I saw The Rift (1990, aka Endless Descent) in 1991 on cable, but I distinctly remember reading the Fangoria article in 1989, where they acknowledged DeepStar Six…

  • Annabelle (2014) Review

    30 Sep 2014 | 11:44 pm
    Annabelle is a prequel (possibly one of many to come) to The Conjuring (2013). The doll that intrigued audiences a little over a year ago despite it being confined to a mostly peripheral role in the original takes center stage in Annabelle which focuses on its backstory. In many ways Annabelle is scarier than the original due to the freedom that comes from not basing the film on actual experiences. Whereas the scares in The Conjuring were heavily influenced by case records and thus not very graphic the ones in Annabelle are visually rich very much in the mode of Insidious (2010).

In fact Hansel Gretel was a surprisingly entertaining film that delivered some good laughs and intense action scenes. Its not a perfect feature but it is damn good fun and Ill be showing up for the premiere of the sequel. As for the Dead Snow movies... well theyre just a special ilk.

The Master has still not turned Palmer who is becoming increasingly concerned and inching toward a grave. Eichorst reminds Palmer that The Master does what he wishes when he wishes and no amount of threats or coercion will get the man what he wants. Its a scintillating scene when you contemplate the context of it all. Palmer has potentially brought about the end of the world by ensuring the vampire virus is let loose on New York.

Of course were curious about others stuck in this miserable zombie filled existence. But personally theres a greater concern for Robert Kirkman and what looks to be a schedule thats simply too packed.

    Hedy Lamarr, inventions"Heddy invented as a hobby. Since she made two or three movies a year, each one taking about a month to shoot, she had spare time to fill. She didn't drink and she didn't like to party, so she took up inventing. When she was a girl, her father, a Viennese banker, had encouraged her interest in how the world worked, taking walks with her and explaining the mechanics of the machinery they encountered. As a young woman, before she emigrated from Austria to the United States, se married a munitions manufacturer and listened in on the technical discussions he head with his…

They married in 1949 and were together until Fogelson’s death in 1987. They operated Forked Lightning Ranch where they bred thoroughbred racehorses.

  • Blu-ray Review: Disaster L.A.: The Last Zombie Apocalypse Begins Here (2014, Dir, Turner Clay)

    Shawn Francis
    27 Sep 2014 | 4:30 pm
    Seeing as zombies aren’t my favorite movie monsters I was surprised that the last zombie flick I added to my collection was John Gulager’s Zombie Night (2013), and it’s not because I don’t like Gulager. He did a masterful job with Feast (2005) and a not bad job with Feast II (2008), it’s just the distributor who footed the bill for Zombie Night, The Asylum, I’m not a fan of. But they are showing some promise these days with their Syfy channel zombie series, Z Nation, which so far I’m a fan of. Disaster L.A.: The Last Zombie Apocalypse Begins Here (that’s the longest subtitle…
  • Blu-ray Review: Rebirth Of Mothra I-III (1996-1998)

    Shawn Francis
    10 Sep 2014 | 4:12 pm
    I had no clue that Toho had remade Mothra and then added a couple of sequels until I discovered that double feature DVD Sony put out back in 2000. Yeah, I bought it, and then wished I hadn’t after I started watching the first one. It was the direction they took with it that destroyed my interest. They made it for kids. I’m not sure it all the way through. I think I may have done a lot of fast forwarding, but I do remember putting on the second, thinking for some reason it would be better. It wasn’t. It was the same tone, and I remember doing a lot of fast forwarding on it too.
  • Blu-ray Review: The Double (2013, Dir, Richard Ayoade)

    Shawn Francis
    6 Sep 2014 | 12:15 pm
    I’ve always had a slight fascination with the doppelganger concept, It’s probably an extension of my more intense fascination with shape-shifters in general, and this year there were two movies that came out directly concerning doppelgangers. Earlier in the year it was Enemy (2013) with Jake Gyllenhaal and based on a Portuguese novel called, “The Duplicated Man,” but according to Wikipedia, “It was translated into English and published as The Double in 2004.” Now we have The Double (2013) another “double-goer” flick this time with Jesse Eisenberg and another that was also…
  • Blu-ray Review: Without Warning (1980, Dir, Greydon Clark)

    Shawn Francis
    29 Aug 2014 | 4:30 pm
    I was in 7th grade when this kid I knew told me about Without Warning. Rob was also the one responsible for clueing me in to the existence of Fangoria. His father pretty much took him to all the new horror movies coming out and in turn the following Monday in school he would tell me all about them. This was the era of the slasher, so I heard more about those kind of movies than any other, but occasionally a “monster movie” would come along, like The Boogens (1981), The Being (1983), The Beast Within (1982), Alien (1979), or Without Warning and I’d be absolutely amazed at what he…
  • Blu-ray Review: Leviathan (1989, Dir, George P. Cosmatos)

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

    The Stop Button

  • After Hours (1985, Martin Scorsese)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    26 Sep 2014 | 9:37 am
    After Hours is meticulous. Director Scorsese, editor Thelma Schoonmaker and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus work with exacting precision throughout, with the first third of the film serving to prepare the viewer for the rest. The film follows boring, regular guy Griffin Dunne as he impetuously pursues an attractive mystery woman (Rosanna Arquette) in Soho in the middle of the night. Scorsese, Dunne and writer Joseph Minion never spend any time establishing Dunne beyond his office drone existence–the viewer comes to sympathize with him due to the strangeness of the events unfolding…
  • The Mummy (1932, Karl Freund)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    17 Sep 2014 | 7:57 pm
    The Mummy is a strange horror movie. While there’s a definite villain–a monster–in Boris Karloff’s resurrected mummy, he poses a danger specifically to only one cast member–Zita Johann. She’s the reincarnation of his lost love and her exact importance to him isn’t clear until the last act. There’s a somewhat goofy moment where Edward Van Sloan, as Johann’s guardian and the closest thing to Karloff’s nemesis, reveals it all to David Manners (as Johann’s more appropriate suitor). Fortunately Van Sloan experiences the eureka moment just in time but not too early……
  • Captives (1994, Angela Pope)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Nearly seventy percent of Captives is a fantastic romantic drama. Julia Ormond is a newly divorced dentist who starts working part-time at a minimum security prison, where she begins a liaison with inmate Tim Roth. Frank Deasy's script concentrates primarily on Ormond and her experiences–with occasions scenes for Roth amongst the inmates, but that first seventy minutes of the film is from Ormond's perspective. Director Pope carefully, meticulously presents Ormond's story, from her experiences with her ex-husband, her friends, her family, herself. The romance with Roth is…
  • Uncle Tom’s Bungalow (1937, Tex Avery)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    10 Sep 2014 | 8:27 am
    Uncle Tom's Bungalow manages to be both appallingly racist and a little progressive. Director Avery turning the slave trader into the devil, poking a little fun at the angelic white girl, general mocking of Southern cultural all around…. But Bungalow just isn't a good cartoon. Ben Harrison's script–with Tedd Pierce obnoxiously narrating–doesn't even include a bungalow. It's just for the title. The first two or three minutes is setting up the characters and setting up the characters is the cartoon being both racist (with the black characters) and…
  • Do You Love Me Like I Love You, Part 1: From Her to Eternity (2009, Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    7 Sep 2014 | 8:47 pm
    From Her to Eternity, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' first album, runs about forty-four minutes. This short film–part of a comprehensive series (Do You Love Me Like I Love You), runs about forty minutes. It consists of band members, fans, journalists–everyone except Nick Cave–sitting in front of black and talking to the camera. Directors Forsyth and Pollard clearly told the interviewees to look directly into the camera. Some do, some don't; either way, the effect is startling. The film has a little narrative. The end of one band, the start of another. Then it moves…

He pulls together a group of friends and forms the L.G.S.M (Lesbians & Gays Support the Miners), a group dedicated to raising funds for the striking miners.

The film is a mix of flashbacks from the year leading up to the accident and a present day, out-of-body Mia watching the events surrounding her and deciding whether her survival is worth fighting for. Inevitably, there's a boy in Mia's life – promising rocker Adam (Jamie Blackley) – and their dreamy romance provides the bulk of the flashback narrative. Though it is soppy and often overwrought in a…

I was playing around with the idea of what happens to a man who not only considers himself civilised but also carries all the accolades and virtues of his society and is recognised as a good upstanding citizen, meeting something so blunt and so animalistic and so callous that his humanity is shredded. Or where the pain is so great that he loses himself, so that was the departure point. As you may or may not know, I…

Wallace wants to call her but Chantry makes it clear that she has a boyfriend (Rafe Spall) and all they'll ever be is friends.

This spelunking adventure comes with a familiar cast of characters: arrogant authority figure, maverick, emotionally scarred question mark, bickering siblings, and a sad-sack tag along.  And yet, somehow, the interaction among them feels surprisingly authentic, and not just because…

You couldn’t go wrong by pairing this with either of the filmmakers’ prior efforts, both horror: We Are What We Are or Stake Land. But if this puts you in the mood for something else a little pulpy and a lot Texan, may we recommend Blood Simple,…

The other neighborhood rugrats who’d accompanied me on this B&E left me there to die. But my twin sister marched next door to our dad and said, “Come with me. Bring your tools.” Why? Because twins have each other’s backs. We have no choice. That nugget of wisdom and others – like the healing power of Halloween costumes and terrible 80s pop songs – fuel the surprisingly intimate…

  • ‘Zombieland 2′ Back in the Works

    Derek Johns
    1 Oct 2014 | 10:57 am
    When Zombieland first premiered back in 2009, it was very well received by critics and audiences, making over $100 million worldwide and on a rather paltry $24 million budget.  Naturally, talks of a sequel came shortly after though up until now nothing has really come of it.  However, Sony has now decided to breathe new life into the project and have started by hiring writer Dave Callaham (The Expendables) to work on the script. I’m actually kind of surprised it took them this long to try to get the ball rolling.  Ever since Zombieland came out, the genre has had a major presence…

    Cool Reviews Rule

  • Syfy's Z Nation Vs. AMC's The Walking Dead

    Sasha Shapiro
    26 Sep 2014 | 11:15 am
    Syfy’s Z Nation was supposed to be The Walking Dead's cheaper version. In reality what we got was a series that is light-years behind the original TWD in every single parameter that the shows can be compared in. It seems that Syfy managed to copy the zombies perfectly but that was the only thing Syfy managed to do right.When people ask why is The Walking Dead is so successful? People might say there’s bunch of zombies and the main characters butcher them in various ways. Sure it's always fun to watch zombies die but if for one second you think that The Walking Dead is so successful…
  • The Maze Runner Movie Review

    James Ian McKenzie
    23 Sep 2014 | 12:14 pm
    To estimate the budget of The Maze Runner would be to conclude that it isn't very high, hardly on the level of the Marvel films at least, if only because it's hard to see that it would have such wide appeal. It seems like, more than anything, it was made for young people, especially younger boys, and the older crowd would be excluded from it, in a way that they would not from more generalized "four quadrant" blockbusters. Let it be said, though, that The Maze Runner is not exactly "risky" in the sense that it's piggybacking off the success of other young adult adaptations like Twilight,…

Ever since people categorized me as a women hater and said I should read the books because apparently I didn't get what George RR Martin was trying to tell his readers. They didn't understand why I didn't see the beauty of this psychopathic character that everybody love so much. Now being called a women hater by brainless militant feminists, spineless men or stoned…

  • [Rec]

    Dan Meier
    28 Sep 2014 | 9:57 am
    A TV crew follow a team of fire-fighters into an apartment block, in Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza’s found-footage horror movie. It’s not giving too much away to say that it’s not just a cat stuck up a chimney. I desperately wanted this film to scare me – it’s Spanish, there are zombies and it has a reputation for being terrifying. So it’s disappointing to find that [Rec] is just another found-footage film – and not even the only one of 2007 to feature zombies, thanks to George A. Romero’s even more disappointing Diary of the Dead. Maybe it…
  • Maps to the Stars

    Dan Meier
    27 Sep 2014 | 5:56 am
    Incest, abuse, Julianne Moore with constipation… it’s all here in David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, a psychological satire about Hollywood and its horrific inhabitants.  Cronenberg has always been obsessed with disease but this time the virus is celebrity culture, and Maps to the Stars is angry and painful like a rash, spreading out of control and infecting its repellent characters. These Hollywood egotists are more grotesque than the ickiest Cronenbergian parasites, even those phallic turd-like leeches from Shivers. But they’re also disturbingly…
  • Pride

    24 Sep 2014 | 12:29 pm
    Set in 1984, Pride is the true story of the Lesbian and Gays Support the Miners campaign – a group of gay and lesbian activists who raised money for a Welsh mining community during the strike, initially facing hostility from the villagers but gradually becoming accepted, united by the common enemy of Thatcherism.  This British comedy-drama will seem familiar to fans of The Full Monty, Brassed Off or Billy Elliot, which would include pretty much anyone with a heart. But what’s surprising is how joyfully effective Pride remains from beginning to end, managing to stay…

    You know that thriller where the retired cop investigates a case by himself to atone for a mistake earlier in his career? You know how he drinks too much and talks in a gruff, monotonous way? You know how he ends up tracking the killers to a house where they’re lurking in a basement, then one of them comes back and attacks him after he thought they were incapacitated? You’ve seen it before right? Then you’ve seen A Walk Among the Tombstones. If this is an accurate representation of the book it’s based on, we can only assume the book is based on lots of crime movies, as…

    13 Sep 2014 | 8:45 am
    In new British thriller Before I Go to Sleep, Nicole Kidman plays an amnesiac who wakes up each day with no memory of the past 20 years, due to a traumatic incident that left her physically and psychologically damaged. Gradually uncovering the mystery of her past, she must learn who to trust – her doctor played by Mark Strong, or her husband played by Colin Firth. Let’s call it Mumento.  I’m going to try to write this review without making any obvious jokes about the sadly appropriate title, which won’t be easy given the disappointing drabness of the direction.

  • Just Like “The Twinkie” Zombieland 2 Might Be Coming Back From The Dead!

    Zachary Rowell
    1 Oct 2014 | 7:50 am
    It looks like ‘Zombieland 2‘ will actually happen after all. It’s been almost exactly five years since the original film was released. The film scored a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes and grossed $100 million worldwide. It’s safe to say it was a huge success, and we all know how much Hollywood loves to squeeze every last dime out of a good thing. It’s honestly shocking that there hasn’t been a Zombieland 2. We know Sony Pictures wanted to make a sequel and we know Woody Harrelson was on board, but they just weren’t able to come up with a decent script. After…

  • Movie Review: The Maze Runner (2014) – Lord of the Flies meets Twilight

    29 Sep 2014 | 11:02 pm
    Currently crushing it at the box office is The Maze Runner, a slightly dystopian mystery with an almost Lord of the Flies feel. Pleasing audiences and critics alike, this movie might be able to redeem a decidedly poor selection of September releases. Dylan O’Brien, who is probably best known for his role as a teen heartthrob and werewolf on MTVs Teen Wolf, stars as Thomas, a young man with no memory. He wakes up in an industrial elevator with no knowledge of how he got there. He is then dropped in the middle of a field where he meets other members of a strange new community, which they…

They write him a check, and he becomes their best man for the big day. Josh Gad will be playing the role of the socially challenged man who not only needs a best man, but also nine groomsmen. Kevin Hart’s character agrees to take on this challenge, but it looks like he may have bitten off more than he can chew. The film also stars Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Cloris Leachman and Jenifer Lewis.

    9 Sep 2014 | 5:56 am
    Justin Marks only has one film to his credit at the moment, which is “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.” This is only because every project he has been involved in seems to become stuck in development hell. Among the movies he has been attached to is “He-Man,” “20,00 Leagues Under The Sea” and “Shadow of the Colossus.” However, with the new “Jungle Book” adaptation in production, it seems the writer’s luck is on the turn. “Top Gun 2” has been in the pipeline for some time. It was the passing of Tony Scott that left the project in limbo. Jerry Bruckheimer remains…
  • The Art of Self Publishing Gives Birth to a New Graphic Novel, “Deer Editor”

    Writing a good story, whether it was for a comic book or a novel, seemed a long-winded process not long ago. Not only did you have to come up with the goods, you had to hope you got good feedback from your publishers, otherwise the product never saw the light of day. Thanks to the Internet and its many uses, self publishing has given comic book writers and authors a new outlet to promote their wares. In addition, the birth of crowd funding operations like Kickstarter allow people to back such creativity. One of the recent successful self publishing projects is “Deer Editor” by Ryan…

  • Things get biblical in new ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ trailer

    1 Oct 2014 | 1:08 pm
    Christian Bale is Moses, Ridley Scott is directing, Aaron Paul has a beard, Sigourney Weaver has creepy eyes, I mean, what more do you need to know about Exodus: Gods and Kings? The first teasers and trailers we saw for Exodus: Gods and Kings tended to focus more on the Kings and not so much on the Gods; however, this new trailer 20th Century Fox has just released shows things getting all too biblical. Honestly, it kind of looks like where The Mummy was going if Imhotep wasn’t stopped. Synopsis: From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure…

    If you didn’t get the chance to see Edge of Tomorrow over the summer, or perhaps you just didn’t want to, I’m telling you–you missed out.

In the film, Tom Cruise‘s character dies over and over again, and now Warner Bros. has released a supercut showing each and every death. Check it out below.   Post by Edge of Tomorrow.
  • Sorry guys, Kevin Durand is not playing Negan on ‘The Walking Dead’

    1 Oct 2014 | 11:57 am
    Yesterday a rumor was going around that The Strain star, Kevin Durand, was approached by many people from AMC to play Negan on The Walking Dead. That simply, is not true, at least not all of it. Nuke The Fridge reported that during a recent conference call for The Strain, Durand told journalists, “I’ve had a lot of people with The Walking Dead talk to me, mentioned that they see me for a character named ‘Negan’, but I haven’t read the comic.” I haven’t read the comics either, but from what I know of the character and seeing Durand on The Strain, I think it…

  • Ethan Hawke will reportedly play Doctor Strange in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe

    1 Oct 2014 | 10:58 am
    Marvel has been actively looking for an actor to play Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson‘s Doctor Strange movie as well as future Marvel movies, especially since Marvel is dead set on doing Infinity Gauntlet. Many actors have been rumored to be in talks for the role, but the most recent and most likely candidate to get the role was Joaquin Phoenix. According to a new report from ThisIsInfamous, Phoenix wasn’t convinced he should take the role so Marvel moved on and has now offered the role to Ethan Hawke instead. This is still a rumor, but the site says Hawke accepted the role a…

  • Khoobsurat (2014) Review

    Mansi Dutta
    19 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    Khoobsurat is as cliched-as-quirky coming together of lovers (and families) with contrasted upbringings.While Sonam's unapologetically over-the-top act (mostly in the first half) takes some getting used to, she shows steely intensity and is rather endearing in a lot of other scenes.Her excessively boisterous sense of style can pass for a young, 20-something but doesn't wash for her kind of profession. Or is it just me? Our blue-blood royal Prince Vikram Singh Rathore (Fawad Khan) impressively pulls off every bit of his act with swooning flair and restrained dignity.Their chemistry is…
  • Priyanka Chopra delivers a knockout performance in Mary Kom

    Mansi Dutta
    5 Sep 2014 | 9:35 am
    Riding high on emotion and melodrama, Mary Kom packs in enough punch to keep you rooting for the film and our protagonist till the end.I'm not sure how much of this real-life tale was fictionalized but director Omung Kumar takes enough cinematic liberties to hold the audience's interest and get its cash registers ringing.For a first-time director, Mary Kom is an above-average attempt. The screenplay is pacy, leaving no room for distractions except the dramatic flashbacks of Mary's child delivery scenes, which intended to create a build up, but end up all sizzle no steak.If there's only one…

  • Review: Homefront (2013)

    Gavin Thai-Low
    1 Oct 2014 | 1:10 pm
    Homefront stars Jason Statham. Enough said? Probably. However, throw in James Franco, Wynona Ryder and Kate Bosworth as white trash antagonists and you have yourself something worth watching. Well, that would be the case if they were actually used properly – instead it is just a run-of-the-mill Statham film, and a poor one at that. He plays former undercover DEA agent, Phil Broker, who retires after a drugs bust and moves out into the sticks with his daughter. His past soon comes back on him as he becomes embroiled with local hoodlum Gator (Franco) after an altercation with his sister,…
  • Trailer Review: Inherent Vice (2014)

    Chris Asiama

    Inherent Vice is a new comedy drama directed by Paul Thomas Anderson and starring Joaquin Phoenix as a down on his luck gumshoe. The film is based on a novel written by Thomas Pynchon who also has a cameo in the film. The movie is set during the last days of the “free love” era and the beginning of an era of paranoia in America during the early seventies. Inherent Vice is a neo-noir detective story where Phoenix’s character, Larry “Doc” Sportello investigates a kidnap plot. An old flame of Sportello’s called Shasta Fay Hepworth (played by Katherine…
  • Review: Leprechaun: Origins (2014)

    Jack Bottomley
    1 Oct 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Back in 1993, Mark Jones’ Leprechaun kick started an unlikely franchise. Starring Warwick Davis (the film’s only real high point, other than the fact it was the screen debut of Jennifer Aniston), Leprechaun- truth be told- was not all that good but the series it spawned was one of Horrors most unfathomable. From prowling space to haunting ‘da Hood’ (twice), the Leprechaun series was not exactly one to take itself too seriously. However this reboot from Lionsgate and WWE Studios approaches the material from a different angle, expelling the comic tone and approaching it as a straight…
  • Five Reasons Why Rutger Hauer Ruled the Eighties

    Harriet Matthews
    1 Oct 2014 | 1:12 am
    Many moons ago, when I was a lacklustre film student, I woke up the afternoon after a party with my head on the floor, my feet on the sofa, and the entirety of Rutger Hauer’s ‘Tannhauser Gate’ speech from Blade Runner sharpied onto my face and chest. That alone should tell you all you need to know about Rutger ‘eyes so blue they’ll burn your skin off’ Hauer, but just in case this immensely underappreciated actor has slipped under your radar, here are five reasons why he was the undisputed king of eighties cinema. 1.

    Two of the Emerald Isle’s elite are set to join forces to make a movie. Full-time action hero Liam Neeson and U2 frontman Bono are writing a script together, for a film about the Irish showband movement of the 1970s. It covers a lesser-known era when Irish rock and pop acts toured the country playing international hits. It is thought that the project has been in the pipeline for a while now, as the pair go back a long way. Neeson said: “We chat, or with him a lot of the time I just listen. He’s a wonderful man. He’s got an idea for a script which we’ve been…

    The "found footage" genre has been divisive from the start. Here are a few that stand out as some of the best. The Bay (2012—directed by Barry Levinson): Like it or not, no one can deny that Barry Levinson did something different with The Bay. Not only is a major director of Academy Award-winning films like Rain Man dipping his toes into horror, but he does so in a way that’s unlike any found footage film we’ve ever seen. Instead of the approach landmarked by Cannibal Holocaust and The Blair Witch Project, which use one camera to follow a small group into oblivion, Levinson gives…

  • The Virtues of Restraint: Non-Violent War Films

    Alexander Miller
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    If you ask somebody about the war films they’ve seen, the first titles that come to mind are usually large-scale epics that feature scenes of combat and violence. These films effectively depict the horrors of war. However, the level of action in some of these films can be distracting and compromise our emotional involvement with the characters once we see how quickly they can vanish, and the level of violence that can occur. There’s another type of movie that exists within the war film genre. They usually revolve around the people, not the action. They take place in, or around, a…
  • The Cinema Kings of Summer: Top 5 Blockbusters

    Chris Worrall
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Now that the summer sun has set and winter is on the way, it’s as good a time as any to reflect on the best that cinemas had to offer for those who wished to hide away from the heat in darkened screening rooms. Without further ado, here are my top five kings of summer blockbusters 2014. 5. Godzilla source: Warner Bros. Pictures While not to everyone’s liking, Gareth Edward‘sre-imagining of this most iconic of movie monsters was an ambitious and at times breathtaking piece of blockbuster cinema. As well as containing one of the best scenes of any film this year (the descent…
  • Pablo Larraín’s Exploration of Chilean Politics: a Shocking View of Mayhem

    Happy Lee Del Canto
    25 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Chilean Filmmaker Pablo Larraín never mentioned the word Trilogy when he embarked on creating Tony Manero (2008), Post Mortem (2010) and No (2012), however, these three films do act as part of a whole: Larraín’s vision regarding Pinochet’s military coup of 1973 and the ensuing dictatorship. Tony Manero and Post Mortem are both grim parables of folks stuck in a moral stupor, wandering the streets of a Chile that no longer knows itself, that silently witnesses the arrest and disappearance of hundreds of people every day, violence and torture a common thing and a convenient shroud for the…
  • ALMOST FAMOUS: The Sublimely Intelligent Rock ‘n’ Roll Trip, 14 Years On

    Yash Bhatia
    24 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    A predominantly accelerated 15-year-old called William Miller (Patrick Fugit) is embarrassingly out of sync with his snarling high-school mates. His mother Elaine (Frances McDormand) is an English teacher who worries about William’s influences and invites rowdy laughter from his classmates when she shouts, “Don’t take drugs!” to him while dropping him off. She is a strict disciplinarian (read: a pain in the ass) to her daughter Anita (Zooey Deschanel)because Elaine thinks rock music is about drugs and promiscuous sex, while Anita worships Simon and Garfunkel. One…

  • NYFF52 Opening Night Review: Gone Girl (2014)

    26 Sep 2014 | 4:25 am
    by Tony Dayoub [A disclaimer: Though I saw Gone Girl at an Atlanta press screening, I'm posting it alongside the rest of my coverage of the New York Film Festival since it is tonight's opening night gala selection. It opens in theaters across the country Friday, October 3rd.] Among director David Fincher's movies, Gone Girl might end up ranking as well executed a puzzle film as The Game. It sounds like a simple statement, but there's a lot to unpack in it. Like The Game, Gone Girl is excellent, trashy fun; no more, no less. It's hard to see how Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's bestseller,…
  • Blu-ray Reviews: Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), The Innocents (1961), Macbeth (1971) and Star Trek: The Compendium (2009/2013)

    25 Sep 2014 | 12:13 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Fall box office offerings are starting to heat up as we head into awards season. That means Blu-ray reviews will be more infrequent, so forgive the odd selection I've cobbled together for this one (and enjoy each Blu-ray's respective screen grabs). Star Trek (2009) Star Trek Into Darkness First up is Star Trek: The Compendium, a re-release of the two J.J. Abrams entries in the popular science fiction franchise. The origin of this release is among the oddest. Last year, the Blu-ray release of Star Trek Into Darkness caused some controversy among fanboys and collectors because…
  • Movie Review: The Equalizer (2014)

    21 Sep 2014 | 6:42 am
    by Tony Dayoub I never watched the original Edward Woodward TV series Antoine Fuqua's The Equalizer is based on. As a critic colleague reminded me, "Well, it was for the blue-hairs." And so it probably was, despite having a high quotient of violence and a killer main theme by the Police drummer Stewart Copeland. The new remake isn't much different, except maybe for abandoning Copeland's classic pulsating bit of electronica. Fuqua reunites with his Training Day star Denzel Washington and further strips down a premise that's already pretty spare to begin with. What's left is so thin and empty,…
  • Movie Review: A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014)

    19 Sep 2014 | 7:30 am
    by Tony Dayoub The last time we saw private eye Matthew Scudder, he had a sunnier disposition and resembled Jeff Bridges. This was in his first film appearance, 1986's nasty 8 Million Ways to Die (Hal Ashby's muddled final movie, written by Oliver Stone and a pseudonymous Robert Towne). Nearly 30 years on, Liam Neeson plays the detective in the unbelievably grimmer A Walk Among the Tombstones. It's a serviceable throwback to cult detective thrillers from the 70s like The Long Goodbye or Night Moves, movies with a flawed antihero at the center of a mystery that's really just an excuse to meet…
  • Movie Review: Love Is Strange (2014)

    12 Sep 2014 | 7:41 am
    by Tony Dayoub Sweet, sincere and romantic, if ever there were an LGBT-themed film with crossover potential Love Is Strange would be a prime candidate. Sure, there has been Brokeback Mountain, Milk, The Kids Are Alright and any number of other ones that have struck a chord with audiences, particularly in the arthouse circuit. But there is something sweeping about Ira Sachs' Love Is Strange, something to which everyone in a deep, committed relationship can relate to without the movie betraying its own identity to pander to a straight audience. While "betray" may be too strong a word to use…

    “Friendships fade. That one person you called your bestfriend 5 years ago, are they still your bestfriend? It’s something between the drifting, meeting other people, and not being there for one another anymore that makes people think twice about who their bestfriend is. Thats just how it is. People change, and things just arent the same as they used to be.” - Daily Tumblr Love Quotes (via thelovewhisperer)

  • No Good Deed

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

    24 Sep 2014 | 1:32 pm
    The Maze Runner    As the box office reign of  "Guardians of the Galaxy"  and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" inevitably comes to an end; it lends the opportunity for another film to shift to the forefront and attempt to stimulate audiences nationwide. "The Maze Runner" is a science fiction tale that fulfills this elementary requirement and functions quite well, considering the youth of the cast and the lack of experience in director Wes Ball. This being his first feature length picture.    With any film whose cinematic concern and theme…
  • Natural Born Killers

    20 Sep 2014 | 12:09 pm
    Natural Born Killers        "If I was a mass murderer, I'd be Mickey and Mallory." So implies a young man featured on a commercially successful television show, that highlights the careers of America's hottest homicidal participants. This fatefully menacing couple are the center of  Oliver Stone's eleventh directorial ambition. One that glorifies senseless violence, all while making a profound statement of its own.     This picture is littered with an array of disparate film techniques and tactics, which create an unforgettably frightful ambiance.

The dog days of summer have been infused with blockbuster pictures, offering nothing more than a vapid level of entertainment. This period of the film industry has dwindled away and left us with a reduced intellect, along with a slothful mind. Autumn cannot come soon enough.    When we think back to films of recent memory, ones that have touched us with their warming grace, a story of a young boy, with…
  • Forrest Gump

    10 Sep 2014 | 7:54 pm
    Forrest Gump     In the vast world of cinema, there are pictures that are built to bring us joy for just a fleeting period of our existence. Their run is often short lived and becomes nothing more than a grain of sand in the hourglass of time. On the contrary, are films that are constructed to endure. To remain in our consciousness, even if thousands of pictures are released henceforth. "Forrest Gump" is undeniably categorized with the latter.    As this film justifiably receives its twentieth anniversary release and an IMAX treatment, we are transported to a realm of…

    The "found footage" genre has been divisive from the start. Here are a few that stand out as some of the best. The Bay (2012—directed by Barry Levinson): Like it or not, no one can deny that Barry Levinson did something different with The Bay. Not only is a major director of Academy Award-winning films like Rain Man dipping his toes into horror, but he does so in a way that’s unlike any found footage film we’ve ever seen. Instead of the approach landmarked by Cannibal Holocaust and The Blair Witch Project, which use one camera to follow a small group into oblivion, Levinson gives…

A nest this size houses hundreds of birds at a time, and is a spectacular sight to behold.

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

There’s a prosecutor, who is in charge of the investigation, a cop, a doctor, gendarmerie forces, grave diggers, a driver and…
  • The Kid with a Bike (Le gamin au vélo) (2011)

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