    Shakespearean hearts of darkness pump the lifeforce into “Throne of Blood,” one of Akira Kurosawa’s greatest films. Loosely based on “Macbeth,” the movie is a blood-soaked tragedy set in feudal Japan of the 16th century. “Throne of Blood” is widely regarded as one of the most successful film adaptations of a Bard play.

  • Woman in the Moon

    Ian Johnston
    18 Mar 2014 | 7:51 am
    Thea von Harbou, Lang’s wife and regular co-screenwriter through his German period, has, to say the least, been on the receiving end of some uniformly bad press. Lotte Eisner, Lang’s most faithful critic, is a good case in point, where any perceived weaknesses in the films (excessive melodrama, sentimentality, and so forth) are made Harbou’s fault and the strengths ascribed to Lang’s mastery as a director. Eisner particularly makes this point with Lang’s last two silent films, Spies and Woman in the Moon.
  • Spies

    Ian Johnston
    17 Mar 2014 | 6:12 pm
    Coming after the mediaeval mythmaking of Die Nibelungen and the fantasy and symbolism of Metropolis, Spies marks a return to the contemporary urban world, the world of urban crime masterminded by a single genius intelligence—the world, in other words, of the first of Lang’s three mammoth films of the twenties: Dr Mabuse der Spieler.
  • Metropolis

    Rumsey Taylor
    14 Mar 2014 | 1:30 pm
    It is no task to relay the many strengths of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis. Even in its age, the film possesses a certain mastery, replete with cinematographic innovations and imagination. It remains, justly, a formidable tentpole within cinema’s robust and varied history. I am inclined to forward these familiar laurels, for in viewing the film some seventy years following its inception supplies unexpected criticisms.
  • Die Nibelungen

    David Carter
    13 Mar 2014 | 9:50 am
    In light of the many intentional parallels between Siegfried and contemporary German politics, Kriemhild’s Revenge emerges as an incredibly subversive work by Lang. It is apparent that, as with Siegfried, Lang’s metaphors were readily understood in Germany, where the film was seldom seen after 1930 although Siegfried continued to be popular. Whereas Siegfried is a celebration of German history and character, Kriemhild’s Revenge could be interpreted as an indictment of the same; a reading that is made more evident with the passage of time.

  • Following Crew Member Death, 'Midnight Rider' Loses William Hurt

    23 Apr 2014 | 3:47 pm
    In case you hadn't heard, the film Midnight Rider, about musician Gregg Allman of The Allman Brothers, encountered a tragic production halt when camera assistant Sarah Jones was killed on set in an accident involving a train during filming in Atlanta, Georgia. The accident has actually put the project and some of the filmmakers in hot water due to some uncertainty regarding the safety of crew members on set in what might have been a dangerous production decision. Courts and various unions are dealing with the issue, but director and producer Randall Miller has been trying to resume production…
  • First Trailer for Artist Takashi Murakami's Film Debut 'Jellyfish Eyes'

    Following a premiere at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Bing Theater a year ago and hitting theaters in Japan shortly thereafter, the directorial debut of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami is coming to United States theaters by way of an eight-city tour. The film is called Jellyfish Eyes, and features a coming-of-age story that unfolds due to an unusual relationship with an odd jellyfish creature. Though the film is in the same vein as something like E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, you've never seen a story like this told with such a unique visual palette. Details on where you can catch…
  • Second 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Trailer is Shorter But Still Sexy

    Ethan Anderton
    23 Apr 2014 | 12:40 pm
    When the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For hits theaters in August, it will have been nearly 10 years since the first graphic novel adaptation hit theaters. It remains to be seen if there's still an audience eager for more of Frank Miller's seedy, stylized film noir, but with an impressive cast that posts Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Mickey Rourke, Ray Liotta, Rosario Dawson, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba and many more, there should be some interest at least. Now to hype things up we have a shorter trailer for the sequel, which is like a condensed version of the original teaser from last…
  • First Look: Official Photos from Set of 'Jurassic World' Have Arrived

    Following news that director Colin Trevorrow has already been part of the planning of more sequels in the Jurassic Park franchise to follow next summer's pseudo franchise reboot Jurassic World, we have the first official photos from the tropical set on location in Hawaii. Production began on April 14th, so we don't have any shots of the dinosaurs, but we do get a glimpse of Bryce Dallas Howard shooting a scene. She's dressed pretty fancy, and judging from the room, it seems like she might be the new John Hammond, behind the scenes of the operational dinosaur theme park we saw in some concept…

    This summer we'll see The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman's sci-fi action flick Edge of Tomorrow hit theaters, but the filmmaker has a whole slew of projects in his future. The latest directing gig for Liman seems to be the video game adaptation of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell starring Tom Hardy, and now THR has word that the director will head into children's sci-fi territory for a new project called Railhead set up at Warner Bros. Based on Philip Reeve's upcoming book of the same name, the book is set in a futuristic world where trains run through space by way of portals. Sounds like…

    23 Apr 2014 | 4:30 pm
    Over the past day or so, the Studio Ghibli International Twitter account has been publishing photos from the studio’s new film, When Marnie Was There. The film is from The Secret World of Arriety director Yonebayashi Hiromasa, and is based on the children’s novel of the same name by Joan G. Robinson. In the book, an adopted girl who makes a ghostly friend by the English seaside. The film will move the location to Japan, and is set for release in Japan this Summer.

His latest gig will see him leading people into bad acts in a new way, however. Haley will direct the indie Criminal Activies, and also take a role in the picture. Deadline reports Haley’s cast (and co-stars) in the movie: John Travolta, Michael Pitt, Dan Stevens and Rebecca Da Costa.

  • LOL: ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ Just The F Words Edit

    Peter Sciretta
    23 Apr 2014 | 2:30 pm
    You may have heard that Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf Of Wall Street holds the record for the most F-bombs in a narrative feature film (the documentary “Fuck” obviously wins the all time record). ScreenJunkies decided to create a two-and-a-half minute cut of the film featuring only the F words said in the movie. But those jokers decided to focus on some of the less obvious f-words in the film, and not feature any of the movie’s record-breaking 506 F-bombs.

  • Long ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ TV Spot Condenses the Sales Pitch

    Russ Fischer
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:45 pm
    Nearly ten years after the original Sin City, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller go back to seedy streets with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The aesthetic approach is the same: black and white, dotted with color. The technique, which heavily relies upon green screen shooting, is hopefully much refined after a decade of practice and technological advances. There’s a new long Sin City: A Dame to Kill For TV spot today; and the one-minute mini-trailer is a good way to take a look at the film. I like the practice of cutting one-minute spots, especially for films that already have a built-in…

  • DVD Review: Urasawa Naoki's MONSTER, Episodes 31-45

    23 Apr 2014 | 2:00 pm
    (We're past the halfway point? Nooooooooooo...!) Australian distributor Siren Visual continues its release of the Monster anime unabated, and the third boxset, released last month, is the strongest one in quality so far. Despite sporting an IMDB-rating of 8.6, and being shown on English-language channels, Monster was previously never released in its entirety on DVD in an English-friendly version, and this current release shows just how big a shame that is. My reviews of the first and second boxset were very positive indeed, and if you just want to know if this one keeps up with those, rest…
  • Dark Czech Comedy KRASNO Taps Into A Coen Vibe

    23 Apr 2014 | 11:00 am
    Though recent Czech comedies have generally been of the very light and crowd pleasing variety it appears that writer / director / star Ondrej Sokol has a little something else up his sleeve with Krasno, a dark comedy steeped in obvious genre and noir influences that seems more in line with something that the Coen Brothers would cook up. Cineuropa sums up the story like this:The story follows a reunion, when main protagonists Adam and Michal return to their rural hometown, Šumperk, for a weekend. Michal is visiting his dying father, with whom he has a decaying relationship - he blames him for…

    How is it possible that an American figure model who ended her career more than 50 years ago continues to be so influential upon today's popular culture? Mark Mori's Bettie Page Reveals All makes the case that the subject of his documentary was a woman ahead of her time. Born in Nashville, Tennessee in 1923, Bettie Page grew up in disadvantageous circumstances; she says her father molested her and her mother didn't want her. Like many young girls of the time, she dreamed of being a glamour girl, and even had a screen test in Hollywood, though that didn't lead anywhere. Instead, she survived…

    THE BLACK BOX – ABC’s “The Black Box” stars Ditch Davey as Dr. Ian Bickman, Kelly Reilly as Catherine Black and David Ajala as Will Van Renseller. (ABC/Andrew Eccles) Black Box, ABC‘s latest drama, feels a lot like a show created by committee, and constructed largely by piecing together ratings research of plot and character points. A little bit House, a hint of Grey’s Anatomy, and a heaping dose of the hokey, “we’re calling you stupid,” plot construction of Scandal… et voilà. Of course, if those last two are among your favorite…

    Philomena is as surprising in its existence as it is in its ability to transform a story that ought to be cliche syrup into something real and moving. The film’s ability to deliver honest emotion may be more surprising, given the synopsis, but the existence question may need some explanation. Steve Coogan, of Alan Partridge and other comedic efforts fame, isn’t a name you immediately associate with not only starring in a venture like this, but also co-writing it and becoming something of a driving force behind the production. Moreover, it’s rare to get anyone behind a film…

    FX continues its effort to take over the world by putting out shows that, even if you hate them, are at least trying to do something amazing, with Fargo. Based on the work of, and produced by, Joel and Ethan Coen, the 10-episode series is only connected to the original film in the loosest possible sense. It takes place in Minnesota, police investigate foul deeds, and some really weird shit happens. There isn’t really a central character to the thing, though Martin Freeman‘s Lester Nygaard and Billy Bob Thornton‘s Lorne Malvo come closest to filling the role. Instead,…

    Alan Bacchus
    3 Apr 2014 | 10:21 am
    Considering the massive overkilled marketing push behind this film, the inspired mix of absurdest humour and sharp satire make Anchorman 2 a genuinely pleasant surprise. The almost 10 years between the first film and this one is worth the wait. While the character of lovable buffoon Ron Burgundy and his outlandish gags and set pieces are finely tuned, it’s the film’s sharp critique of the commodization of modern news which sets the film apart from other money-making franchise ventures, such as 'The Hangover'.Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013) dir.

    With Easter coming around, this also means the season of a historical epics – both in theatres and home video. Agony and the Ecstasy was one of the bigger films of its day, a 70mm showcase, telling the story of the Michelangelo and his tempestuous relationship with Pope Julius I who commissioned the surly artist to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. As usual with this kind of the film, the superb production value carries the weight over a dull story and hammy characterizations of historical figures.Agony and the Ecstasy (1965) dir.

    David Gordon Green’s dreamy feature debut renowned for its swath of Terrence Malick affectations feels even more warm and inviting fourteen years later. The consciously lazy narrative of a group of rural Texan kids, black and white, co-habitating happily, and growing up impervious to the pretty bleak squalor around them, is the functional foundation for Green’s lush tonal aesthetic. Essentially the film is made up of small moments of infectious and hypnotising beauty, moments and scenes which don’t always coalesce together fluidly, but collectively whet our palette through its nostalgic…

    Steve McQueen’s already celebrated picture consciously manages to find a medium ground between the intimate and avant-garde roots of his earlier pics and the broad historical canvas of American slavery. As devastating it is to see slavery depicted on screen he never seems to match the level of visceral impact as his debut Hunger. Thus, however powerful and moving there’s a feeling he’s tamed himself for the sake of American and Hollywood acceptability.12 Years a Slave (2013) dir.

    If you didn't realise by now the upcoming X-Men film X-Men: Days of Future Past is packed with talent both old and new, we're seeing the joining of the original X-Men actors with their counterparts from the previous film X-Men: First Class, a fantastic reboot, restart and origins film if ever there was one.

Still, it couldn't match Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which held on to first place for the third weekend in a row.The Marvel sequel added $25.6 million this weekend, which represents a light 38 percent decline. It reached $200 million on Sunday, and should pass Thor: The Dark World in the next few days.Playing at 2,417 locations, Heaven is for Real earned an excellent $22.5 m...
  • Friday Report: 'Transcendence' Tanks, 'Cap' Holds Off 'Rio' on Good Friday

    19 Apr 2014 | 9:09 am
    For the second week in a row, the top spot is going to be a toss-up between Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Rio 2. Meanwhile, Johnny Depp's Transcendence got off to a horrible start on Good Friday, and is now on pace for an opening weekend around $12 million.Captain America: The Winter Soldier took first place with an estimated $9.6 million. In its 15th day in theaters, it passed the lifetime gross of the first Captain America ($176.7 million). So far, it's earned $184.5 million, an...
  • Forecast: 'Transcendence' to Trail 'Rio,' 'Captain America' Over Easter

    17 Apr 2014 | 5:04 pm
    Friday AM Update: Transcendence earned an estimated $850,000 from Thursday night shows. Among recent releases, that's around half of Noah's $1.6 million start, and around a quarter of 300: Rise of An Empire's $3.6 million. That's an especially disappointing number considering how many people are off from work or school for Good Friday. For the weekend, Transcendence may fall short of $20 million.Forecast: Four new movies hit theaters over Easter weekend, though the fight for first place wil...
  • Forecast: 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Gets Early Start Overseas

    16 Apr 2014 | 5:09 pm
    Two weeks ahead of its U.S. debut, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 begins its international roll-out this weekend. It opens in 15 markets, including major territories like Australia, Germany, Mexico, Spain and the U.K.The sequel arrives less than two years after The Amazing Spider-Man, a franchise reboot that earned over $750 million worldwide. While that's an impressive tally, it marked a new low for the Spider-Man character. That drop can be attributed in large part to declining interest in the...
  • 'The Raid 2': Our Fear of Subtitles Strikes Again

    15 Apr 2014 | 4:04 pm
    This past weekend, Indonesian action movie The Raid 2 expanded nationwide in to 954 theaters. It was arriving two years after its predecessor earned $4.1 million total, so box office expectations weren't particularly high for this outing.Still, there was some hope that the sequel could at least top the first movie. After all, The Raid: Redemption has surely built up some kind of fan base through two years of home video viewing. The Raid 2 promised more of the same kind of brutal action, but...

  • New on DVD and Blu-ray, April 18

    17 Apr 2014 | 4:14 pm
    Ride Along This is a straight-up formula piece in the "48 Hrs." vein, with Kevin Hart as the funny guy and Ice Cube as the surly guy who are thrown together in a police car (this time in Atlanta) and end up on the trail of a mob boss. Hart is funny, and Ice Cube has an authentic presence, but the whole thing is so predictable that you could probably imagine the movie, or a reasonable facsimile, without bothering to see it. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty The charm of James Thurber's 1939 short story is completely lost in this morose, slow-moving, self-involved and tonally off film, about a…
  • Now Playing

    17 Apr 2014 | 1:46 pm
    Tanaquil Le Clercq This documentary about ballerina Tanaquil Le Clercq, whose career was cut short by tragedy, is a magnificent view behind the scenes of the New York City Ballet, showing how one person can leave a legacy still talked about in the dance world. The family movie is filled with impressive footage, and has a strong protagonist who must lead her cubs from a snow-covered mountain to a salmon spawning ground. The story lacks the fortuitous plot turns found in previous Disney documentaries, resulting in some awkward (and possibly deceptive)tension-building editing tricks. Cesar…
  • Blu-ray review: 'The Postman Always Rings Twice'

    Mick LaSalle
    17 Apr 2014 | 1:45 pm
    The world of this story - its seediness, its poverty, its bleakness - is conveyed with oppressive specificity, so that everyone watching wants to escape, just as much as the central characters do. In 1946, censorship mandated that the couple's victim, the woman's Greek immigrant husband, couldn't really be a bad guy. Along that line, Lange has a wonderful moment in which, prodded by the husband to repeat a Greek phrase, she says it back to him, but with a glint in her eye as if really saying, "I hate you, and I'm going to kill you."
  • 'Watermark' review: Soak up the gorgeous visuals

    Walter Addiego
    17 Apr 2014 | 11:39 am
    Full of gorgeous photography and pondering a very large question - how does water shape humanity and the world? - the documentary "Watermark" is close to the cinematic equivalent of a coffee-table book. The high-definition, often slo-mo images can be hypnotic, making ocean waves, massive dams and rivers of chemical waste appear as near-abstractions. [...] in China, we see laborers working at an abalone farm that floats atop Luoyuan Bay - from a bird's-eye view, there are miles of square pens covering the water like a mammoth net. Other striking images include an old Mexican woman wandering…
  • 'Only Lovers Left Alive' review: Life sucked out of the plot

    Mick LaSalle
    17 Apr 2014 | 11:39 am
    [...] this is a weak entry in the filmmaker's canon, a film that continues Jarmusch's rebellion against narrative while offering nothing in its place. Even his disappointing 2009 film, "The Limits of Control," contained little moments of beauty, wordless poetic touches, observations and flashes of longing that suggested the emotional origins of its inspiration. "Only Lovers Left Alive" is simply dead, an exercise in style, bland humor and vague gesture that yet seems to have been made in the naive expectation of a conventional response - that is, of an audience's actually caring. (If we're…

    Alice
    23 Apr 2014 | 5:30 am
    By Anatoly Liberman Henry Bradley, while writing his paper (see the previous post), must have looked upon Skeat as his main opponent. This becomes immediately clear from the details. For instance, Skeat lamented the use of the letter c in scissors and Bradley defended it. He even noted, in the supplement to the paper devoted to Spelling Reform, that, all Skeat’s ardor and arguments notwithstanding, in his publications and personal letters he stuck to traditional spelling. This mild taunt was beside the point. Why should Skeat have adopted reformed or simplified spelling before it became the…

    23 Apr 2014 | 1:30 am
    By Niels Vandezande In the last few months, international media have reported extensively on the latest developments in the online economy. These reports have focused mostly on the rise of so-called cryptocurrencies, with bitcoin being the most well-known example. Such cryptocurrencies are characterized by their decentralized nature, meaning that they aren’t controlled by a central government. As such, their emission is controlled by an algorithm rather than by economic imperatives. While originally used by only a small group of enthusiasts, bitcoin has now captured the attention of the…

    Few realise that Brazil was the birthplace of the money market fund. Since their inception money market funds have grown and spread globally. However, they have often eluded a firm definition. In this series of podcasts Viktoria Baklanova, Chief Credit Officer of Acacia Capital (New York), describes the genesis of money market funds, explains what they are, and gives insight to the size of the industry and the major players within it. As well as providing an overview to money market funds Baklanova discusses their possible regulation. In response to the recent popularity of the Bitcoin,…

    The American Journal of Hypertension (AJH) recently published the findings of a comprehensive meta-analysis monitoring health outcomes for individuals based on their daily sodium intake. The results were controversial, seemingly confirming what many notable hypertension experts have begun to suspect in recent years: that levels of daily sodium intake recommended by governmental agencies like the CDC are far too low, perhaps dangerously so. Media outlets were quick to broadcast the findings, and the response from the CDC and organizations like the American Heart Association were much the same…

    Frozen, which won two Oscars and has been a huge hit on home video, is still in theaters and should cross the $400 Million mark this weekend. It also recently became the sixth highest grossing film ever worldwide, and is the third most successful animated film domestically. In any other situation, that would mean a sequel would be in development and ready to go. But no, Disney is currently more interested in getting a version on Broadway. That’s what Disney head Alan Horn said to The Hollywood Reporter, and it goes against modern blockbuster thinking. But then again, so did the success…
  • 'Barbie' to Get Feature Film, Because Branding is Hollywood's God Now

    Damon Houx

    Inherently there is nothing wrong with the prospect of a Barbie movie, a film that Sony (who’ll be producing it with Mattel) is looking to get going later this year. Theoretically at least. That Sony is looking to turn it into a franchise makes it seem like the latest in a long line of terrible ideas from Hollywood where branding trumps content. The news of Sony and Mattel working on a Barbie movie comes from Deadline, and what this does is point out that there’s very few female filmmakers currently working on big or medium budget movies (not that they aren’t applicants).

Ron Howard (March 1, 1954) Sure, some of the older folks still think about Richie Cunningham (or Opie Taylor, if you’re even older…) when they hear Ron Howard’s name, but in the last couple decades, he is quite the synonym for Hollywood Toned productions, and we, here at Jinni, feel that his latest effort, Rush, was short changed for Oscar Nominations…

    “The Casual Vacancy,” J.K. Rowling’s literary follow-up to her insanely successful “Harry Potter” franchise, didn’t have the big pomp and circumstance the world’s most famous boy wizard had–the book had mixed reviews despite over six million copies flying off the shelves–but it will soon have its own lane of popularity when it gets in the hands of HBO and the BBC. The dramatic book by Rowling, which features a picturesque English country town that seems to be more akin to “Peyton Place” in terms of its disagreeing populace,…

That’s certainly the case with two of the main actors in the new independent drama thriller, ‘Gabriel,’ David Call and Rory Culkin, as well as their respective characters.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the split is amicable and had been in the works for a while, since the two writers have been working on other separate franchises. Orci is still in the world of the “Star Trek” franchise and is also in loose talks to direct the third film–no negotiations have happened, but Orci has…

As NPR notes, fast food CEOs compensations have quadrupled in the last 14 years, while most restaurant workers make just $9 per hour. Another recent report found that more than half of all fast food employees utilized, or have family members using, government assistance programs like food stamps. Last year, the CEOs of YUM!

  • Always Check the Rules Before You Eat Your Record-Setting Shark

    A few weeks back, fisherman Joey Polk caught an 805 lb. shark and threw it in the back of his truck, as is the style of the times. (Yes, this happened in Florida.) Polk was so excited about catching a record-setting shark that he decided to commemorate the catch by chopping it up and grilling it, which is too bad, because that's against the rules of the Land-Based Shark Fishing Association(?). It means Polk's catch won't be recorded for posterity, and the record holder will remain Earnie Polk—Joey's cousin. He caught a 725 lb. mako back in 2009 and, yes, he also ate his shark.

    I’ve watched a lot of movies with my children and find it great fun to see the films through their fresh eyes with their oh-so-modern sensibilities. A few weeks ago I cracked out one of the best sci-fi films ever made and enjoyed it again with my 17 year old daughter: Alien. She was a bit unsure at the beginning, but was completely caught up by the time the creature bursts out of Kane (John Hurt)’s chest cavity. “This is really good for such an old movie!” she exclaimed and even had trouble falling asleep after it ended. The mark of a good film, I say! Watching Alien with her started…

Skip the popcorn and soda, aim for the afternoon screenings instead of Friday or Saturday night, and it still adds up pretty darn fast. Still, so many films are far better on the big screen than they are on TV, even with a fancy home theater setup. Movies are designed to be big and loud, with 11-speaker systems or more, so compressing it onto your 38″ HDTV will never offer the same experience. Enter MoviePass. For a flat…

    In a documentary style that adroitly switches between between a film about a delusional homeless man named Augustus Gladstone (played by writer and director Robyn C. Miller) and a film about the team making a documentary about Augustus, The Immortal Augustus Gladstone alternatively intrigues and bores with its uneven pace and over-reliance on first-person interviews in lieu of narrative. Augustus claims that he’s about 150 years old and that his youthful appearance is because he’s a vampire. But is he? A gentle man whose home is tucked in the middle of a condemned hotel in…

Yes, somehow a film about a guy who gets a message from God that tells him to build a huge ship to rescue every animal because a storm of, well, Biblical proportions is on the way has been turned into a fantasy epic complete with 15-foot tall rock creatures called the Watchers and a remarkably self-contained Ark that could just as easily have been shooting through space as the ship from 1972′s classic Silent…

As a critic, I always try to say something nice about a film but every so often I’m dumbfounded by how bad a movie is and marvel how it could have been green-lit by the studio in the first place. Sure, Sabotage has a solid cast with the former Governator himself Arnold Schwarzenegger in the lead role as Breacher, the tough-as-nails (of course) leader of an elite DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) task force, but there’s not a single character in this film that’s pleasant, not one person that anyone will identify with.

Things are different with Frozen, though, because it was really the ridiculously catchy songs that turned it into a hit, and if you look back at Disney Animation's track record when it comes to its musical movies (The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast), none of them have gotten straight-up,…

    Division has become a standard practice in ending an adaptation series. Did it begin with the Harry Potter films, splitting the final installment to create a penultimate climax, only to be shortly followed by the likes of other fantasy series such as Twilight’s “Breaking Dawn” and later on with the “Hunger Games” finally to be made into two separate pictures? Not to be outdone, the enormous Hobbit films have become not just a matter of division into to installments, but have become a trio of multi-million dollar movies. “Divergent”, a recent box office…

Rio brings in all the same characters from the first film and adding new characters and has almost too many side stories that the focus is almost too broad for the movie. The story is a meet the parents film mixed with a save the forest film plus a villain returning for revenge, and a fitting in and being yourself film.

  • Sacred Screen – The Flux of Religion in Films

    Andrew Fowler

    Muddled in the mix of remakes and sequels, Hollywood has recently been churning out several films with themes based on religion. Some popular examples of course being “Noah”, and the February release “Son of God”. These overt biblical tales are not the only spiritual stories making their way on the screen. Why the increase in these types of films? People at this point have yawned away the debate over whether these films should even be made. With a whopping budget estimated at over $120 million, “Noah” has had no problem finding companies to throw money at them, even if the themes…

    Many people believe that The Avengers was and is Marvel’s best movie ever made. I beg to differ, I always felt no matter who made the avengers and what kind of story it had, everyone who has read the comics just wanted to see all the superheroes together in the same film. It was just a comic book nerd’s wet dream and it went on to make a lot of money. But was it a great movie? It was definitely a good action packed entertaining film and therefore it was a good movie. Captain America: Winter Soldier on the other hand is something greater than a good movie. Marvel had missed a trick…

Though it is based on the story in the Bible there are many changes in terms of story and events that many people with a religious background will find uncomfortable and even insulting. The film stars Russell Crowe as Noah, Jennifer Connelly as his wife, Logan Lerman as the Han the second son of Noah, Emma Watson as Ila, Ray Winstone as an evil King, and Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah the grandfather of Noah. The story is a loose adaptation of the story in the Bible, with many changes that either add…

Scott referred to VOLUME 1 as “the fun part.” Scott was making a joke (at least I think he was), but that snarky bon mot is probably how a lot of viewers will feel after watching the less conventionally enjoyable second half of von Trier’s magnum opus.

A true-life story of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as experienced by the titular WW II veteran and the doctor who treated him, “Jimmy P.” is one of the best movies…

    Frank Langella (Dracula), one for one, everything I have ever seen this guy do, he has always just had a commanding presence, and the fact is, is that presence and that level of command of the craft is so amazing and spellbinding, that no matter what role he has played, (that I have seen him in anyway,) he has just absolutely made the role a powerful performance, and in my opinion, the movie is better just by the fact that he was in it! So it was so surprising to me that he would have created the same level of awesomeness when playing the more subdued role of, ‘Frank Weld’ in,…

  • New Release Dates: ‘Foxcatcher’, ‘Mortdecai’, and ‘The Nest’

    Sandy Schaefer
    23 Apr 2014 | 2:00 pm
    It came as a surprise last year when two potential Oscar contenders – true-story dramas Grace of Monaco and Foxcatcher – were both removed from the 2013 awards season competition on short notice. The two films will premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, but whereas the Grace biopic is currently without a U.S. release date, that’s no longer the case for the new real-life story-turned film directed by Bennett Miller (Capote, Moneyball). Sony Pictures Classics, according to a report by THR, now plans to release Foxcatcher in the U.S. on November 14th, 2014. There, it will…

    Now that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a bonafide hit (both at the box office and among reviewers), attention now turns to the final “Phase 2″ Marvel movies – Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. No doubt, with the announcement of Captain America 3, along with rumors of a Doctor Strange movie, the studio has far-reaching plans, all the way to 2028, but before fans get worked into a frenzy over the new adventures we might see in “Phase 3″ (and beyond), the studio is still busy preparing two of its most ambitious projects to date.

    The Jurassic Park movie franchise returns with a new installment, Jurassic World, in 2015, featuring Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) in his sophomore turn as a feature director. However, it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to deduce that Universal is also resurrecting the sci-fi/horror property in the hopes that Jurassic World will be successful enough at the box office to warrant additional sequels. Trevorrow was interviewed about Jurassic World by Empire Magazine for the latter’s upcoming 300th issue; during the course of that conversation, the topic discussion eventually…

    About a week ago, news hit the web that camp classic Flash Gordon – the subject of Mark Wahlberg’s and Seth MacFarlane’s fawning adoration in 2012′s Ted – might be getting the remake treatment, with emphasis on the word “might”. The announcement sounded somewhat fishy on paper, pegging Star Trek 3 writing duo J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay as the screenplay’s architects while offering no mentions of a producing studio and no official source to back it up; all of these details add up to a hot rumor but not necessarily anything authoritative. But it…

    Walt Disney Pictures released two movies based on its theme park attractions in 2003; one of them, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, was an immense hit that gave rise to a billion-dollar franchise, while the other, The Haunted Mansion, was far less successful – critically and financially – but still grossed a tidy sum at the box office (over $180 million worldwide). The Mouse House has since attempted multiple times to bring another of its popular theme park rides to the big screen, with It’s a Small World being the latest subject. Disney’s…

    MIGHTY MOVIE PODCAST

  • The Cinefantastique Spotlight: TRANSCENDENCE

    Dan Persons
    21 Apr 2014 | 11:38 am
    It’s a brave but not especially bold new world faced by (clockwise from top) Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, and Morgan Freeman in TRANSCENDENCE. It’s some kind of irony that the experience of watching a film called TRANSCENDENCE is far from transcendent. Not that director Wally Pfister doesn’t try: The story of a scientist working in A.I. research (Johnny Depp) who has his own consciousness transferred to the Web is lushly mounted (as befits a big-studio production from the man who previously served as Christopher Nolan’s director of photography), reliant on an…

    Not even Scarlett Johansson is sure of what she sees in UNDER THE SKIN. “I reeeeeally want you to review UNDER THE SKIN for HOUR OF THE WOLF,” Jim Freund said to me a couple of weeks ago. That was good, because I reeeeeeally wanted to review UNDER THE SKIN, but constraints — both on time and finances — meant that I needed a good reason to get to it. Since we were committed to reviewing CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER — an okay film, but not really more than that — on the CINEFANTASTIQUE SPOTLIGHT the week UNDER THE SKIN was debuting, Jim’s advocacy was just the motivation I…

    This scene, featuring stars Brenton Thwaites and Karen Gillan, appears NOWHERE in OCULUS. How frustrating is it when a film has all the stuff it needs — promising premise, good production values, decent cast, director who can twist filmic reality in imaginative ways — and just… doesn’t … grab… you? Pretty damn frustrating, it turns out. OCULUS tells the tale of an orphaned brother and sister who reunite as adults to destroy the mirror that turned their father into a homicidal maniac, yet despite casting DOCTOR WHO’s Karen Gillan in the lead, finding unique ways of styling…

    10 Apr 2014 | 6:33 am
    The Winter Soldier is well-represented, if not exactly front-and-center, in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER. Well, they can’t all be NOAH, but then again, they all don’t need to be VAMPIRE ACADEMY, either. On the spectrum of the Marvel Comics franchise films, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER doesn’t reach the cinematic heights of the Raimi SPIDER-MANs (oh, okay, the first two SPIDER-MANs) or Whedon’s THE AVENGERS, but doesn’t crater out anywhere near the THOR or (shudder) FANTASTIC FOUR efforts. Filing my review for Jim Freund’s HOUR OF THE WOLF, I was happy (relieved,…

Four movies, three studios, and more opportunities for the true believers to nudge each other knowingly when Stan Lee makes his expected cameos, even though your great-great-grandmother could probably recognize him by now. That said, there are far worse ways to kick off this flood than CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, a well-mounted, surprisingly well-acted (hey, you’ve got Sam Jackson and Robert Redford in…

  • 'Frozen 2' Not on Disney's Plate at the Moment, Maybe They'll Let it Go?

    Damon Houx
    23 Apr 2014 | 12:52 pm
    Frozen, which won two Oscars and has been a huge hit on home video, is still in theaters and should cross the $400 Million mark this weekend. It also recently became the sixth highest grossing film ever worldwide, and is the third most successful animated film domestically. In any other situation, that would mean a sequel would be in development and ready to go. But no, Disney is currently more interested in getting a version on Broadway. That’s what Disney head Alan Horn said to The Hollywood Reporter, and it goes against modern blockbuster thinking. But then again, so did the success…
  • 'Barbie' to Get Feature Film, Because Branding is Hollywood's God Now

    Damon Houx
    23 Apr 2014 | 12:23 pm
    Inherently there is nothing wrong with the prospect of a Barbie movie, a film that Sony (who’ll be producing it with Mattel) is looking to get going later this year. Theoretically at least. That Sony is looking to turn it into a franchise makes it seem like the latest in a long line of terrible ideas from Hollywood where branding trumps content. The news of Sony and Mattel working on a Barbie movie comes from Deadline, and what this does is point out that there’s very few female filmmakers currently working on big or medium budget movies (not that they aren’t applicants).

    Seeing as how we’re not likely to see a single bit of footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron until much later this year, we’ve got to sustain ourselves on the little crumbs that fall off of the production’s table.  Case in point: today’s behind-the-scenes pictures from the set, taken by Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. The pics don’t offer much in the way of spoilers; rather, it’s Ruffalo just shot a pic of himself and Downey, as well as Scarlett Johansson’s back—which, on a slow news day, apparently counts as news.  Score!  Oh, and Robert Downey Jr. took a picture of…

The series was created by Neil Cross, who is behind the acclaimed British drama Luther. I was sold on the series just with the casting of Malcovich as Blackbeard, and I'm happy to say that the trailer doesn't disappoint!  This series looks freakin' awesome, and Malcovich is perfect in this role!

    Eve Beauregard captures Lobo's raunchy, villainous attitude in this femme cosplay. She's got the chain, the leather, the snarl, the hair, and the makeup down, all she is missing is the facial stubble. Normally a femme version of a character shows more skin, but not in this case. Lobo normally only wears an open vest and pants, or just pants and no shirt at all. I'm pretty sure Lobo would approve of this cosplay and have a few lewd remarks for Beauregard.

Eddie Nunez captures one of my favorite rides in pop culture beautifully here, complete with all four turtles and lackeys Bebop and Dr. Stockman along for the ride. Beyond the fantastic color work on display, Nunez translated each turtle’s personality onto the page. From Raph’s come and get some…

    Put some pants on, Greek warriors! Howdy-do folks. Welcome to another edition of The Horror Movie Show, hosted as always by your best pals Mark & Jerry. This week the guys begin the program with a couple of blockbusters & end on a different note altogether. Big, big money is behind 300: Rise of an Empire, the follow-up to the 2006 semi-homoerotic 300. The first time around, the producers gave us a movie in which a bunch of super-warriors from Sparta took on the might of the Persian military in a no-holds-barred battle. Eight years later, we watch the best of the rest of the Greek…

Starting with a look at I, Frankenstein, the guys have much to say about this comic book-based addendum to the tale of Victor Frankenstein’s most-famous creation.

    Immortal Ephemera

  • His Greatest Gamble (1934) Starring Richard Dix

    21 Apr 2014 | 1:43 am
    His Greatest Gamble (1934) Starring Richard Dix was originally published on Immortal EphemeraRichard Dix is best remembered today, if at all, as the star of Academy Award winning Best Picture Cimarron (1931), generally considered one of the weakest Best Picture winners in Oscar history. Prior to Cimarron he gathered several major silent film credits, most notably The Vanishing American (1925), but while you and I may be different, most modern movie fans will not stop to celebrate the silents. Unfair, but they are antiques to most and, to be completely honest, I wish I took the time to watch…

  • Remembering Mickey Rooney (1920-2014) on Screen, Especially 1937-1944

    11 Apr 2014 | 3:53 am
    Remembering Mickey Rooney (1920-2014) on Screen, Especially 1937-1944 was originally published on Immortal EphemeraWhen his name comes up, my favorite bit of Mickey Rooney trivia to toss out is that he was on film in ten different decades. From a few dozen Mickey McGuire shorts beginning in 1926 through a handful of 2010s releases, none of which I’ve ever seen, but all of which I’d assume are quickie cameos, Rooney didn’t just eke out this ten decade thing. In fact, he was working vaudeville with his parents even before he showed up on screen. Rooney died this past Sunday at the age of…

    23 Apr 2014 | 1:23 pm
    “Friendship may fade but pants are forever” is presumably how producers pitched a third Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants film, almost a decade after the first premiered. According to Variety, Alloy Entertainment is set to revisit the story of four childhood friends and the pair of blue jeans that inexplicably fit their diverse body types. Given that the 2008 sequel largely condensed events from the second, third, and fourth books from the series it was based on,the third film will draw from the fifth and final Ann Brashares novel, Sisterhood Everlasting. That book checks in on the…

Of course, as always, that’s just speculation, owing to Trevorrow’s continued secrecy on the project. But now the director has offered a few hints in a new Empire interview.In addition to saying he hopes this could spawn yet more sequels—sequels he says would be based partly around the…

According to “The Economics of Ghostbusters”, produced by the economics web series EconPop, it’s also an object lesson in “ectoplasm, Sumerian dogs, entrepreneurship, and the pitfalls of overzealous government regulators.” EconPop is hosted by New York-based comedian Andrew Heaton and executive produced by video producer/ad agency CEO John Papola.

  • Watch This: Art Garfunkel acts for Nicolas Roeg, and the results are predictably unusual

    Every day, Watch This offers staff recommendations inspired by a new movie coming out that week. This week: The adultery-themed comedy The Other Woman has us thinking back on other films about infidelity. Bad Timing (1980) It’s a miracle that Art Garfunkel’s performance in Bad Timing didn’t immediately and forever extinguish all sexual desire on Earth. The singer’s turn as Alex Linden, a horny, repressed, and dangerously uncool university lecturer in post-Cold War Vienna, strips the male psyche to its core with such violent aplomb that the character resolves as less of a man than a…

    Sony Pictures and Mattel, apparently inspired by the Aqua song, have made a deal to produce a live-action comedy around Mattel’s iconic Barbie dolls.Considering that Barbie, if she were human-sized, would have no room for a whole liver in her petite 16-inch waist—and would be so frail that she’d be unable to walk or lift her head—it’s likely Sony will be taking some creative liberties with the the doll when it comes to casting her. According to Deadline, the studio will be looking for an as-yet unknown young actress to play the lead.Ken will also star. Skipper may also star, though…

Adam Driver plays the National Geographic photographer who catches her at various points along the way, helping to create the memoir on which the film is based. While capturing the wild beauty of the Outback, this is less Picnic At Hanging Rock than a skin-blistering trawl through blinding sandstorms, merciless sun, and mountains of camel dung.

    I’ve been a Makai Senki Disgaea fan since the first game released for the PlayStation 2 (2003) under Atlus, and since then I’ve been hooked on the series and all the different installments, but the one thing the series never got were many figures and statues. There have been a few released in the past, but now Good Smile Company adds Etna and Flonne (Flon) to their line of Nendroids. Etna is Nendroid number 356 and features three different interchangeable facial expressions which includes her cute face, extremely angry face and mischievous face. The interesting add-on for…

    It's starting to become hard to imagine a time when the name Ben Affleck wasn't synonymous with Batman in any way, shape, or form (And it's only going to get harder in the next couple of years). Yet believe it or not, just about a year ago Ben Affleck was known as the guy who pulled himself out of what seemed to be a never ending spiral sub-par films, and turned himself into one of the most

  • Article: 'That's not my name...' - From Korean to English

    Martin Cleary
    21 Apr 2014 | 3:06 am
    I think it's safe to say that one of the problems that newcomers to Korean cinema face is dealing with Korean names. For most of us average westerners, Korean names at first appear very complicated - difficult to read, difficult to say and difficult to spell. Different spellings of the same name  are also common – and this can mean that searches for people on the internet or in libraries can prove difficult. If you're relying on the exact spelling of a name then it doesn't really help if you find that a DVD company, reviewer or writer has spelt it in a different way. With the article…

  • Denzel Washington looks badass in first images from The Equalizer

    23 Apr 2014 | 12:07 am

The new images show Washington in full-on badass mode, posing with a firearm in the pouring rain, and escorting Chloë Grace Moretz’s vulnerable teen through a pitch-black Boston night. The film is based upon an ‘80s TV show of the same name, but according to Washington, it’s the story’s big-screen qualities that drew him to the project. “It’s a classic story, the innocent girl and the guy coming in to save the day and kick some…

In your hunt for the best outdoor movie screen, you’ve probably come across both LED and projection screens. What is the difference? The obvious difference is the need for a projector. You can throw an LED screen up on any wall, and it will show whatever you want. First of all, that’s going to cost you. For a 16’ x 9’ LED screen, the installation is going to run you close to $100,000. Compare that to our complete 16’ x 9’ PlusHD outdoor movie package, which comes in…

You can’t just use any old home theater projector for your large outdoor movie event, so where do you start when looking for the perfect projector?

    Israel Daramola
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:29 am
    Tilda Swinton, Tim Hiddleston, John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska star in the latest film from Jim Jarmusch. The tale of two centuries-old vampire lovers living in desolate areas, Detroit and Tangier, reuniting and rekindling their love at a time of growing depression at the state of humanity. Trying to bog down a Jarmusch film to its plot almost seems beside the point. The best Jarmusch films are about people and relationships. Such is the case in Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive,“ a story about lovers lifting each other up at their most vulnerable and depressed. It’s a…

    Israel Daramola
    11 Apr 2014 | 11:34 am
    THE WHO: Scarlett Johansson puts in most of the grunt work in Jonathan Glazer’s first film in 13 years. THE WHAT: A species from another planet embodies the human female form and combs the highway in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lonely men into an otherworldly lair where they are seduced, stripped of their skin, and never heard from again. THE BIG DEAL: Glazer has made, by far, one of the eeriest and creepiest films that have come out in the past decade. “Under The Skin” is a bare-bones, artfully rendered sci-fi tale that sinks into you and…

During that time, Dom’s wife has died of cancer (not before cheating on him first), his daughter has had a grandson, and those he protected have profited off of his suffering in prison. Dom immediately seeks out his old heist buddy Dickie Black (Richard E.

Balancing a fragmented and distorted timeline of events with the quiet desperation surrounding the struggles of identity, Winter in the Blood includes plenty of moments to provoke laughs with its unapologetic dark humor under the most morbid circumstances.

Yet, somehow this film tends to remain funny with quippy dialogue and solemn self-discovery among everyone in the group.

    Heading off for a savage journey to Heart of the American Dream, Matt and Mark discuss the pros (Matt) and cons (Mark) of the Hunter S. Thompson adaptation Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Terry Gilliam. Matt attempts to slice and dice the absurdity, comparing such existential musings with the likes of Sartres and Camus, while Mark shrugs his shoulders at the irredeemable assholes which are Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo.

Not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, Matt finds himself in the odd position of defending cheesy B-grade sci-fi to Mark. Despite being ridden with plot holes and degraded by lack of production value, Screamers achieves in theme what many more blockbuster offerings only hint at. Holding true to its Philip K Dick short story source material, Screamers surpasses the likes of Paycheck and Minority Report without the Hollywood head-start.Download: 113 Screamers

However, while legend has it that one of their earliest screenings of a train arriving at La Ciotat station had crowds reeling in terror at the prospect of the locomotive plummeting through the screen (something which may not be true, but makes a great story), the medium has since developed at an astonishing rate. In 1896, a simple 16mm black and white film played on a dimly-lit projector with no sound may have been enough to astound…

Long before Marvel Pictures cornered the heroism market, there were costumed champions saving us from inconceivable danger and boredom whose adventures would run for months (not weeks) at your local cinema. Some carried a whip, some carried a light saber, but in 1984 we were introduced to ones that carried something called a ‘proton pack’. The Ghostbusters smoked cigarettes, drank booze and were willing to take on crippling debts to fund a ludicrous business model. They were three friends who wanted to live together in…

I say, “People like Woody Allen,” meaning people like John Turturro, the mega man of indie film.  Turturro explores the Woody Allen universe…

  • Ejecta Trailer Promises a Captivating Blend of SciFi and Horror

    23 Apr 2014 | 12:59 pm
    Anytime science fiction and horror collide we stand to soak up some outrageous concepts. The majority of the time these wily ideas fail to impress. But every now and then a flick comes along that finds the perfect balance and manages to scare the shit out of us. Need an example Fire in the Sky. Freaky freaky business. Need another Well from the looks of it Ejecta. This forthcoming tale of a solar storm and evil entities looks genuinely absorbing. Just gazing at the trailer has my blood boiling eager to jump right into this twisted situation. Based solely on the new trailer the acting looks…

    22 Apr 2014 | 12:21 pm
    I dont think for one single second that new breed standout director Ben Wheatley intended to appeal to the sober mind when he directed the psychedelic genre piece A Field in England. I think he had a vision himself and that vision included throngs of prohallucinogenic film fans lined up outside of theaters in the UK greedy for an atypical pic destined to cater to the passionate user specifically. And you know what I applaud Ben if he did in fact experience that notion. Because he actually managed to put together a film truly faithful to the affects users experience while under the influence…

    22 Apr 2014 | 11:28 am
    Heres the thing with an improved and tightened up script and an alternate male or female lead (one had to go) The Appearing could have been a fun overachiever of a flick. There are a couple moments screaming to be put together properly. I think if they were theyd be infinitely more successful in manifesting legit fear. I mean no disrespect to cowriter and director Daric Gates but I think hes got some more work to do before attempting another serious feature length film.

    Shawn Francis
    22 Apr 2014 | 4:29 pm
    Growing up a giant, fire-breathing Japanese turtle by the name of Gamera became just as an important influence on me as his more famous giant, atomic-breathing Japanese cousin, Godzilla. It was back when we used to get the WPIX channel from New York over here in Massachusetts, and they had this thing they used to run called ‘The 4:30 Movie.’ If you go on DVD Drive-In’s website there’s a page devoted to ‘The 4:30 Movie’ with a list of movies (with dates) that were aired. My first Gamera movie was War Of The Monsters (1966, aka Gamera Vs. Barugon) and according to DVD Drive-In it…

    I can’t remember the first Godzilla movie I saw. All I’ve retained to date are just snippets of memories from when I saw some of them during childhood. Let’s see if I can chart them here in this review before I discuss the blu-rays. I was born in 1969 so throughout my childhood they were still making Godzilla movies. To start off here’s a quick rundown of the Godzilla movies and Godzilla-themed movies I saw: Rodan (1956) Mothra (1961), War Of The Gargantuas (1966), Atragon (1963), Godzilla Vs. The Thing (1964), Godzilla Vs. Monster Zero (1965), and Destroy All Monsters (1968),…

    To function, that is the key, When designing Iron Sky we wanted to give the film a distinct, unique look. But not just any look—we didn’t want things just to appear on screen and look good, but everything needed to have a proper function, a reason to exist in the world we see so carefully created. Together with our Production Designer Ulrika Von Vegesack, Concept Artist/Art Director Jussi Lehtiniemi, our whole visual effects team, our set construction team and prop teams, we created a world which could exist at least in theory. My vision for Iron Sky was always to walk the thin line…

    When thinking of low budget, sci-fi, time travel films, one almost instantaneously comes to mind: Nacho Vigalondo’s Los Cronocrímenes (titled Timecrimes in the U.S.). An enthralling story, great acting, the director/writer’s first name is Nacho – basically, you can’t go wrong! It had a grandiose feel, with minimal budget and kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. At this point, you, dear reader, are probably thinking: “Jeez, they sure messed up the title of this review. This guy is talking about a completely different movie!” Don’t worry, I’m getting to it!

    Before moving to New York, I, like many people in the world, had a picture of this city drawn by the romanticized portrayals of neurotic creatures of comfort in Woody Allen films.  Sadly, that world isn’t very salient in reality.  New York City has the same “normal” folks as anywhere else.  It’s just that people like Woody Allen heighten aspects of it by exploring and psychoanalyzing the fears and desires of many wonderful characters. I say, “People like Woody Allen,” meaning people like John Turturro, the mega man of indie film.  Turturro explores the Woody Allen universe…

  • Bean (1997, Mel Smith)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    19 Apr 2014 | 10:23 pm
    I’m trying to imagine how Bean would play to someone unfamiliar with the television show. Depending on one’s tolerance for bland family comedy-dramas, it might actually play better. Because Bean, the movie, removes a lot of Bean, Rowan Atkinson’s character, and instead fills the time with Peter MacNicol and his problems. His job is on the line and his wife of presumably sixteen plus years has decided their marriage is on the rocks because of those problems with his job. Pamela Reed plays the wife and she’s exceptionally unsympathetic in her anger. Screenwriters Richard…

    It’s incredible how much concern director William Friedkin is able to get for his characters in Sorcerer. Now, the film’s really kind of like four or five movies in one–there are four prologues, with very full ones for Bruno Cremer and Roy Scheider, then there’s the story of Cremer, Scheider and Amidou (who also gets a prologue, just not a substantial one) in South America, then there’s the story of Ramon Bieri and his American oil company and how it affects the local South American population, then there’s the story of these four guys who have to drive…
  • The Strange Woman (1946, Edgar G. Ulmer)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    18 Apr 2014 | 9:45 am
    The Strange Woman opens with Dennis Hoey as a drunken widower and Jo Ann Marlowe as his evil little daughter. Herb Meadow's script is real bad in this opening, but it's nineteenth century kids playing and one of them is a psychopath, how good is the script going to be? But then it jumps forward to Hedy Lamarr playing the daughter, presumably as a young woman just of marrying age, and Hoey's contemporaries lusting after his kid. The principal luster is Gene Lockhart, who schemes–aided by Lamarr's manipulations of her situation–to get her into his house and bed.

    Linda Fiorentino might be a year older than Matthew Modine back she's supposed to be playing a worldly twenty-one year-old to his eighteen year-old high school senior in Vision Quest and they sure don't look it. Modine looks about twenty-four, his age at the time of filming. Fiorentino looks twenty-one. She isn't the problem with the film (she nearly makes it worth a look on her own). The problem isn't even Modine, who's very earnest, just physically unable to portray his character. The problem's Darryl Ponicsan's awkward script. The film's technically…

    4 Apr 2014 | 2:14 am
    Captain America: The Winter Soldier has a bunch of great, thoughtful scenes and many excellent–and some just better than normal–performances but it doesn't add up to much. Those fine scenes don't have enough separation from the very hurried plot to resonate on their own. What should be subplots turn out to be nothing but texture scenes or, more cynically, ones to tie into later big plot developments. Directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo do an adequate job with the film. Some of the action, particularly in the first half, is good. The big finale goes from way too hurried…

Each step was in most cases years apart, and cinema was far and away the best format to watch your movie so making choices was easier based on how quickly you wanted to see it and how good you wanted the experience to be. Fast forward to now, and the choice is much harder.In most cases, it all still begins at the cinema - the VOD simultaneous releases are not common enough to consider right now.

    The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a drab office drone so unremarkable that his boss can't remember his name after seven years on the job. He harbours a crush on his colleague/neighbour Hannah (Mia Wasikowska) and spends his evenings peering into her apartment via his telescope. Simon's dreary life begins to unravel after the arrival of James Simon, a doppelganger – also played by Eisenberg – who is everything Simon isn't: slick, charming, successful with the opposite sex and upwardly mobile professionally, quickly catching Hannah's eye and earning a promotion. The Double,…
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

    7 Apr 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Instead of focusing on the 'man out of time' aspect of the Captain America character that The Avengers touched on, The Winter Soldier is more concerned with the contrast between the old school, Golden Generation values held by the Captain, aka Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), and the shady practices of his employers SHIELD. The super-espionage organisation has played a big part in Marvel's cinematic universe so far but their presence has never been felt as much as it is here and their shady practices loudly echo the NSA's real-life privacy-invasion scandal. It's the kind of bold move that isn't…
  • Divergent Review

    6 Apr 2014 | 7:31 am
    This film is set in a dystopian future (is there any other kind?) where some unspecified war an unspecified number of years ago caused humanity to rethink how things work. People are split into factions –except for the people who don't live in a specific faction, but doesn't that make them in themselves a faction? - that fulfils a specific purpose in society. One faction is tasked with defending, another is tasked with research and so on. At some point in their young lives people are allowed to choose what faction they'll go into after submitting themselves to a test that tells them what…

    In keeping with Hornby's novel, each of the four gets their own voiceover and extended introductions. Firstly, there's Martin Sharp (Pierce Brosnan), a disgraced breakfast TV presenter who lost his family and career over an affair with an underage girl. He's joined on the roof by gawky single mother Maureen (Toni Collette), stroppy teenager Jess (Imogen Poots) and wannabe rocker J.J (Aaron Paul), who are struggling to deal with a disabled son, the loss of a loved one and career frustrations, respectively. With their plans scuppered, the gang make a pact to not try to kill themselves until…

      Israel’s hypnotic fairy tale nightmare Big Bad Wolves releases today. We follow one driven cop, one driven-to-madness father, and one milquetoast teacher accused of the most heinous imagined acts. Not for the squeamish, the film boasts brilliant performances, nimble writing and disturbing bursts of humor. It treads in dark, dark territory, but repeatedly dares you to look away. It’s a bold and brilliantly realized effort. It’s hard to imagine anyone really aching for a double bill like this, but it’s impossible to watch Big Bad Wolves without thinking of the…

    Over the weekend, vinyl nerds the world over celebrated Record Store Day. Well, we want to keep the party going with a trip through a celluloid world where vinyl still rules. For your perusal, our 5 favorite album-oriented movies.   5. A Clockwork Orange (1971) Kubrick’s masterpiece is a real horror show, with one pivotal scene taking place in a record store where our hero, minus his droogies, picks up some Ludwig Van and a couple of young ladies for an afternoon’s respite from the old ultraviolence.

    Transcendence by Hope Madden Johnny Depp fans could use a little good news. The genuine talent hasn’t made a film worth watching since 2011′s Rango, and that was a cartoon – and his only half-decent movie since 2007′s Sweeney Todd. Unfortunately, Transcendence isn’t going to help matters. Depp plays Dr. Will Caster, a very happily married scientist doing research that will make unfathomable breakthroughs in artificial intelligence. And oh what a muddled mess it turns out to be. The movie, I mean. The A.I. turns out to also be Johnny Depp, which beats the hell out…

    Under the Skin by Hope Madden Jonathan Glazer is a filmmaker worth watching. While you’d hardly call him prolific – he’s directed just three films in his 14 year career – each effort is an enigmatic gem worthy of repeated viewings. His latest, Under the Skin, offers a challenging, low key SciFi adventure that keeps you guessing and demands your attention. Scarlett Johansson turns in her third back to back stellar indie performance as the nameless lead, a mysterious beauty looking for unattached men in Scotland. Light on dialogue and devoid of exposition, Under the Skin requires your…

The Asher family is moving to a new home (can it get more unoriginal than this?), and in spite of being aware of its dark past, the family tries to settle in and live normal lives.

    Prior to watching this film I had a very low set of expectations from this Hercules movie. It seemed like who ever decided to create The Legend of Hercules decided to capitalize on the really big film featuring the rock in a similar project. In addition to that the film seemed to be lacking its own individuality, if you paid attention to the film and didn’t give up on it you could find some similar elements to the Gladiator, the 300 and Spartacus TV series. A movie is allowed to have similarities to other films but in this case The Legend of Hercules was singularly constructed from parts…

      There's not much wrong with Kimberly Peirce's (director of Boys Don't Cry and Stop-Loss) Carrie reboot. In fact, it's probably quite an interesting movie if you've never seen the original. The real problem facing this venture is that Brian DePalma's version is SO iconic and timeless, this remake could never match it, let alone surpass it. The script-writer's stick rigidly to the storyline, making this a near scene-for-scene copy, just with a more expensive-looking paint-job and some annoying modern technology awkwardly lumped in. In fairness to Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, their…

So, with another year of movie-watching under my belt, I'm hoping to do even better than 2012.And by sheer coincidence, I've actually seen every single Best Picture nominee this year.  I think this is a sign of the type of film that's been nominated in 2013 as entries like The Wolf of Wall Street, Gravity and American Hustle are far more accessible than previous nominees like 2012's Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild and The Artist and Tree of Life the year…

    That is correct we are going to have two separate The Jungle Book remake films. It's going to be a lot like when Mirror, Mirror and Snow White & the Hunstman came out in the same year. Currently both Andy Serkis (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) and Jon Favreau (Elf, Iron Man) will both be directing a Jungle Book remake for Warner Bros and Disney respectively.Now The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave) is in final negotiations to voice Rakcha the wolf mother who adopts Mowgli into her wolf pack.

    Variety got the scoop that the writing duo Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman behind the rebooted Star Trek, Transformers, Amazing Spider-Man 2 and TV hit Fringe are officially parting ways. It will not be based off any cruel judgement between them but so they can grow as directors in their separate careers. The two will still work together on TV projects...Roberto Orci is currently working on Star Trek 3 script and maybe called upon to direct. While Alex Kurtzman is looking to Sony's Venom spin off film as director.The Amazing Spider-Man 2 debuts this May

  • Calvary

    Dan Meier
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:00 am
    Calvary is the new drama from John Michael McDonagh, brother of Martin McDonagh of In Bruges fame, making them the most successful Irish siblings since Jedward. Brendan Gleeson plays a Catholic priest, struggling with the strange folk of his remote Irish community – like a particularly pensive episode of Father Ted. And as in the classic sitcom, as well as McDonagh’s previous film The Guard, the rhythm and idiosyncrasies of the Irish dialect is beautifully mined for comedy, giving the film a dark vein of humour typical of the brothers’ work. But Calvary is a…

Luckily a flirtatious Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) is on hand to help, having seemingly forgotten about her relationship with Hawkeye. Either that or she’s trying to sleep her way through the Avengers. Good luck with Hulk. Ewww. Sorry. Thanks to Steve’s long freeze, virtually the entire supporting cast from the first movie have popped their clogs, leaving room for Black Widow and Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) to plug the gap.

    The man in a vehicle sub-genre has recently given us Robert Redford on a boat and Liam Neeson on a plane, and now Tom Hardy in a car. Locke is set entirely in a car (a BMW, for all you product placement fans) and features only one character on screen; a construction supervisor named Ivan Locke (a heavily bearded and heavily Welsh Tom Hardy). Locke drives and makes a string of (handsfree) phone calls, most of which are about cement.

    This is no Frozen or Lego Movie I was really excited for the release of Rio 2, as I was such a big fan of the original. I was actually the creepy adult in the audience, who went to see it without a kid! But I’m very disappointed to say, Rio 2 fell short of expectations. In Rio 2, we are reunited with Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), and Jewel (Anne Hathaway).

As Blu struggles to fit in, he comes face to face with the movies first villain Big Boss (Miguel Ferrer), who…

    Tense, Intelligent and Fun I’m not really a football fan, so I tend to avoid football related movies. If you’re like me, then I should tell you that Draft Day isn’t really about football. Instead, it’s more a behind the scenes look at the wheeling and dealing that makes football, and it is absolutely worth the watch. In Draft Day, we meet Sonny Weaver (Kevin Costner), a general manager who has the opportunity to shape the Cleveland Browns into his dream team. His father, who was also the previous coach, has died and he now has the opportunity to trade up to the number 1 spot with…

Directed by Diego Luna, Chávez chronicles the birth of a modern American movement led by famed civil rights leader and labor organizer, Cesar Chavez (Michael Pena). Torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to bringing dignity and justice to others, Chavez was almost like a farm workers Ghandi. He embraces non violence, while fighting for the rights of farm workers, and…

The movie is based on the popular novel by Veronica Roth.  The Neil Burger-directed movie takes place in a dystopian Chicago where people are divided into five ‘factions’.  These are Abnegation (selfless), Amity (peaceful), Candor (truthful), Erudite (intelligent) and Dauntless (brave).  Beatrice Prior, played by Shailene Woodley, has always…

    Oldboy is an interesting, story driven, South Korean movie. The main character (Oh Dae-Su) gets kidnapped and imprisoned without knowing the person behind the kidnapping or the reason for imprisonment. The plot is the driving entertainment factor in this movie along with some incredible action sequences. Oldboy has unique characters and an original story that will keep you guessing until the end.

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

This anime tells the story of a girl (Fuu) searching for a samurai who smells like sunflowers. With the help of the two samurai she rescues, they travel across Japan in search of the sunflower-smelling samurai. The best thing about Samurai Champloo is in its comedy, due to the mash of elements of hip-hop and history. In addition to that, the art and animation of the Edo Period in Japan is beautiful. All of this is set to an incredible hip-hop based soundtrack…

The first season is the story of two detectives recollecting their role in the hunt for a serial killer seventeen years ago as the killer seems to have resurfaced in the present. The first thing that captured my attention was the dialogue. The conversations between characters articulately delve into what it means to be a human while keeping things slightly humorous.

Her is based on the relationship between Theodore Twombly and his newly purchased, artificially intelligent operating system, Samantha. This plot led to a heavy, thought-provoking movie and I often found myself wondering about each situation as it presented itself on-screen. Two complements to the movie really stood out to me – the cinematography and music. Every scene was incredibly colorful and vivid, giving…

    Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow confirmed that they will be using animatronic dinosaurs in the film, going for that practical effect rather than overused CGI, as well as discussing the film’s broader set. “It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time”, Trevorrow explained to Empire, “and so now we’ve brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?” Additionally, we are now getting a first look at the set of Jurassic World…

     The stigma that surrounds the issue of mental health in Ireland is a sad truth. There’s no denying that when it comes to certain topics in society Ireland isn’t the leader of the pack, in fact more often than not we’re the last to reach the finish line.

    Our modern-day lovers Krish and Ananya have no hang up about sex, early on in the relationship. Their actions, decisions don't seem contrived. There are no forced emotions, melodramatic tantrums. Things fall uncomplicated-ly into place. Teething issues, whatever little, are ironed out quickly and endearingly (Alia shines in that scene, suppressing emotions while trying to palate the not-so-perfectly timed proposal). Bugaboo begins with the 'M' word and with both parents playing spoilsport, 'marriage' seems a distant dream for our 'Punjabi-Madrasi' couple.Spanning their breezy love story, and…

The survivors’ battle for justice continues, almost 30 years after. Very few filmmakers have dared to touch this subject, for reasons obvious. The Widow Colony (2005) and Amu (2005) are the two most notable films on the subject.We caught up with filmmaker, activist and the woman behind the award-winning documentary The Widow Colony, Harpreet Kaur. The…

  • Johnny Depp: Why The Hate?

    Christopher George
    23 Apr 2014 | 11:48 am
    In the last couple years it seems like people have forgotten something. Johnny Depp can act. Yet suddenly, there's been quite a huge backlash against a man that's stretched his skills as an actor time and time again. Has he not proven himself? Or is it just the string of Pirates movies that started this trend?I'm actually asking because I want to know. It's confusing to me that a diverse, chameleon like actor like Mr. Depp is so strongly ridiculed after making what some might consider the transition to more kid friendly fare. Honestly, would you turn down the multi-million dollar Disney…

    Michelle reviews the 2012 horror feature, Berberian Sound Studio."What does this dial do?"One of my favorite sub-genres of horror films are 1970’s Italian slasher/giallo movies. Directors such as Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci had a huge impact on modern horror—they gave it some much needed style and panache. Berberian Sound Studio is both an homage to the genre and an interesting psychological thriller on its own merits.This film is from emerging British film director Peter Strickland and it’s an amazing effort for only being his second film. The story follows British…

    Jodorowsky's Dune: A documentary film about a film that never got put to film."Dude. Don't you havea Tie Fighter to pilot!"Perhaps one of the greatest crimes ever committed by Hollywood was the closed mindedness that allowed Alejandro Jodorowsky's Dune to go unmade during a time when science fiction would have been redefined by a highly colorful and imaginative portrayal of Frank Herbert's Dune. Years later, we ended up with a laughable David Lynch version that bombed just months after the release of sci fi juggernaut, Return of the Jedi. This documentary chronicles Jodorowsky's undying…

    "Heaven" may or may not be for real, depending on your point of view."Is this the perv that did it?"Unfortunately, `Heaven is for Real' is a real film you can really see in theaters.  It has all the makings of a made-for-television film, filled with false promises of ethereal vistas witnessed during a four year old boy's near death experience.From the hokey images presented in the trailer, it's obvious that this film is designed to lure unsuspecting Christian and secular viewers alike into the theater with hopes of turning over a profit. While I have nothing against Christian films or…
