    For his 11th birthday, my son asked if he could have a slumber party. He invited seven other fifth-grade boys. They played video games for a couple of hours, ate pizza, then said they wanted to watch a movie. They'd seen every comic book movie multiple times. Seen all the Indiana Jones films. Star Wars. Anything with a hobbit in it. The usual 11-year old boy options, circa 2015, weren't going to work. So I suggested "Aliens," thinking, "Well, it's exciting, and even if they haven't see the first one, the movie tells the story well enough that you won't be confused about who Ripley is and…

    Rebekah Brooks, the former editor and top aide to Rupert Murdoch who was at the center of the U.K. phone hacking scandal, is apparently signing back on with News Corp.

She’ll be based in New York, and is also expected to advise Murdoch on potential digital acquisitions. Brooks resigned as chief executive of News Corp.’s News International, now known as News UK, in 2011. Her exit came in the wake of public outrage over reports that…

    David Cronenberg is near the top of the list of directors whose works resist snap judgments. His mix of black comedy and unabashed melodrama is so delicate, and in some ways so off-putting, that at times it's hard to tell if he's kidding or serious (the answer is usually both). He's been described as a horror filmmaker, and his longstanding fascination with bodily invasion and the fragility of flesh confirms that label—or does it? A good many of his films play like horror movies even if they don't have genetic mutations or other obvious "monsters." Why? Maybe because he's less interested in…
  • Leonard Nimoy: 1931-2015

    27 Feb 2015 | 12:48 pm
    If anyone needed proof as to how beloved Leonard Nimoy was, all they would need to do was look at the Internet to witness the tributes to the man and his long career following the announcement of his passing today at the age of 83 from advanced pulmonary disease, which he was hospitalized for earlier in the week and which he attributed to a smoking habit that he had given up three decades earlier. These weren't just the normal acknowledgements of the death of a celebrity that one usually sees. These were deeper and more personal, as if someone close to them had died, and showed that to them,…

    William Shatner has beamed himself back to Los Angeles where Leonard Nimoy‘s funeral was set to take place Sunday, according to media reports. It was a shocker, because earlier in the day the former Captain Kirk on the hit “Star Trek” TV series spent hours on Twitter defending his decision to miss the service for his co-star, explaining that he couldn’t make it because of an earlier commitment to a Red Cross charity function in Palm Beach, Fla.

Of course, we weren’t going to object. Stanger’s new pursuit in vino makes sense when you consider all the boozy mixers she throws for Southern California’s lovelorn elite. And considering “Millionaire Matchmaker” has been on the air since 2008 — an…

    Filmbuff Two new documentaries opened this weekend on VOD and in limited theatrical release, but aside from being non-fiction they share absolutely nothing in common. Well, nothing obvious anyway, but through sheer will power and the finessing of a few adjectives I feel confident saying that these two wildly different films are both focused on exploring the human heart. The Widowmaker is obvious as it’s quite literally a look at a specific type of heart attack that has killed millions of people even though it’s quite possibly a preventable incident. The doc explores a quick…

There’s still no sequel to the movie planned, nor even a reboot, but a TV series of the same name is in the works for CBS, and Slater has been cast in an undisclosed part. TV Line reported that she and former Superman portrayer Dean Cain, who donned the cape for TV’s Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, are both joining the show, which will star Melissa Benoist in the title role this time around.

    20th Century Fox Winter season has generally been home to some of the most forgettable movies, i.e. Gangster Squad, The Spy Next Door, and Endless Love. With the emphasis to catch up on Oscar nominees, and the spew of V-Day romances, it appears that there is little room for decent, original, and enjoyable films. However, with the decline in Oscar integrity there has been a rising intrigue in moviegoers to find the hidden gems amongst the sea of winter releases. With each year comes a larger chunk of films to get excited about and a growing interest towards festival screenings and new…

I can only say that I met him once, albeit very briefly, but he was just as gracious and good natured as you’d expect.  He was most known as Spock from Star Trek, the logical first officer of the USS Enterprise. There was so much more to Mr. Nimoy than his most iconic work. So much so that the writing of any tribute in the wake of his passing today is a terrifying proposition. I’m not sure I have the words to truly sum up what Mr. Nimoy meant to several generations of fans, but I do know this:…

  • Vernon, Florida

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

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

    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.

    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.

Oscar winning actress Maggie Smith plays Miss Shepherd, a character she has played before on stage and on the radio, and she looks like quite a hoot. She's joined by Alex Jennings as Alan Bennett, with appearances by Dominic Cooper, James Corden, Jim Broadbent, Frances de la Tour and a few others.

    Later this year, we'll probably see Leonardo DiCaprio enter the awards race again with the lead role in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's The Revenant (get a first look right here). But it sounds like he's got another potential awards contender finally coming together after trying to get the project off the ground for nearly two decades. The Crowded Room is a real life drama about Billy Milligan, the first person to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a defense in a court of law. Sounds like a compelling enough story, and making the story more rich is the fact that Milligan had 24…

For those who don't know, the series follows a 12-year old boy named Finn and his talking dog best friend Jake who go on endless quests to protect their beloved Land of Ooo, usually from the Ice King who is searching for his…
  • 'MacGruber' Sequel is Still 'Priority #1' According to Star Will Forte

    Ethan Anderton
    27 Feb 2015 | 5:01 pm
    It's been about six months since we had any real update on the progress of MacGruber 2, a sequel that surprisingly has some legs even though the film bombed hard at the box office. The "Saturday Night Live" feature adaptation of the late night sketch parody of "MacGyver" has gained quite a following on home video though, and star Will Forte and writer/director Jorma Taccone have been at least slowly writing a sequel. And since Forte is currently doing the rounds for his new show "Last Man on Earth" on Fox (which you should watch because Phil Lord & Chris Miller have a hand in it), we have…

  • Joseph Kahn’s ‘Power/Rangers’ Copyright Debate Settled; Original Rangers Offer Opinions

    UPDATE: The copyright debate over Power/Rangers has been settled and the film is back on YouTube and Vimeo. Click there to see both. Original story follows with the update after. One of the biggest movie stories this week was the release of Power/Rangers, a professionally made, R-rated fan film based on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Directed by Joseph Kahn (Torque) and produced by Adi Shankar (Dredd), the Power Rangers short film put a dark, kinetic spin on the ’90s cartoon.

    Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we catch up with the other Neistat brother, get Hasidic and cheat on our husband, get homeschooled, wonder out loud just who or what in the hell Rooster Teeth is, and spend some time with the cinematic arm of the Nazi Party.

  • See New ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Poster and Clips

    Russ Fischer
    27 Feb 2015 | 5:00 pm
    A new Game of Thrones season 5 poster is out, along with a couple of new clips. The poster is striking, because it features Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) standing on the prow of a ship, staring up at one of Daenerys’ dragons. And the clips are solid, because one features the hint of a little conversational conflict, while the other marks the return of fan-favorite character Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). See it all below. Here’s the poster. Before you get too excited about a new look at a dragon, consider that the image here seems to borrow a shot of Drogon from…

  • Secrets & Lies Review – TV ABC

    1 Mar 2015 | 7:05 am
    ABC‘s Secrets & Lies gives away the main thrust of the story with the gimmick itself, leaving the ten-episode dramatic effort to keep viewers interested with… well, all the secrets and lies. The trick here being that some of them aren’t actually either. Similar to such popular, recent efforts as Broadchurch (Gracepoint), this is another reworking of a foreign show. This one, like The Slap, an effort from Australia. The show opens with Ben Crawford (Ryan Phillippe) sprinting out of the woods to get help after he finds the body of a small boy, Tom Murphy. Tom was not just…

The story of a woman with a personality disorder, who obviously is off her meds, winning the lottery and spending the money to air her own talk show, Welcome to Me is indie gold, and Wiig is the person to deliver. Plus, the supporting cast is amazing, and if the trailer is a legitimate picture of the film, it should be brilliant. Take a look below, and let me know what you think of this…

    Horrible Bosses 2 was so fantastic that we spent at least half the show answering listener questions about the Star Wars trailer, which makes us nervous. We also ran for a while on the idea of the user ratings from various sites, and the extent to which they are perhaps skewed in cases such as this movie, because you had to agree to show up for this one in order to rate it… theoretically. The most interesting thing to talk about here was contractual obligation, and it was more of a letdown than it might seem, because we are both on board for giving anything with Jason Bateman a chance,…

    The main thing to know about FOX‘s The Last Man on Earth before going in is that it’s a long con. FOX is keeping things under wraps with the Will Forte vehicle (the clip above finally lets on that someone else is on Earth), but there’s only so much you can hide if someone really wants to know. For example, if you just go to IMDb.com, you find that Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, and Cleopatra Coleman are all on the show as well. The gimmick is clear going in, and Will Forte is a talented enough comedian and actor that he can sell the idea of jumping on board…

    It took 13 years for Sergio Leone to get this, his last film, onto the big screen. For the most part the time away served him well, as this superlative exercise in gangster cinema, dramatically heightened to the max with the same dreamy romantic sensabilities of his Spaghetti Westerns, comes close to being the final word in prohibition-era crime films.   Once Upon a Time in America (1984) dir.

    26 Feb 2015 | 9:29 am
    By 1981, Brian De Palma was well into his ’Hitchcock period’, a string of films in the late 70s going back to 1973’s Sisters, but really starting with 1976’s Obsession, followed by Carrie that same year and then The Fury (1978) and Dressed to Kill (1980), which mashed together Alfred Hitchcock‘s most famous suspense set pieces with a tone of sleazy exploitation and dreamy cinematic bravura. The success of Carrie notwithstanding, Blow Out was arguably De Palma's most accomplished of these films.Blow Out (1981) dir. Brian de PalmaStarring: John Travolta, Nancy Allen, Dennis Franz,…

Looking back, the story of a group of British track and field athletes and their collective journeys to the 1924 Olympics in Paris, fighting for King and Country, is as stuffy and stodgy as British period films come, and is arguably one of the least memorable Best Picture Oscar winners.Chariots of Fire (1981) dir.

    As an exercise in research, I read some of the original reviews for A Streetcar Named Desire, both the 1951 film and the original Broadway play. Surprisingly, very little was made of Marlon Brando, then brand new to both Broadway and Hollywood. Brando's role as Stanley Kowalski, of course, is now almost universally recognized as ground zero for the dramatic shift away from the classical Hollywood studio form of acting to the immersive method style. And yet the original Variety review is surprisingly understated in their praise, writing, "Marlon Brando, at times, captures strongly the…

  • Review: 'Lazarus Effect’ revives dead, but puts audiences out

    By Mick LaSalle
    26 Feb 2015 | 12:03 pm
    “The Lazarus Effect” is not the usual mindless thriller, but it’s as flat as an open soda from last week, with dull characters and virtually every scene taking place in a single location. In talking about “The Lazarus Effect,” a distinction must be made between the “Lazarus effect” within the movie and the effect of “The Lazarus Effect” on audiences watching the movie. Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass play a girlfriend-boyfriend pair of scientists, working with two junior assistants, one melancholy and one jolly. (In horror thrillers, jolly assistants are preferred, because…

    Look around the bus or train — look out the window at the people passing by — pick any random person in a crowd, and chances are you’ll land on someone who would love to make a movie like “Queen and Country.” Every year, a dozen or so actually make the attempt, to immortalize their youth and capture the glow of some distant point in time, but they almost never succeed. [...] “Queen and Country,” John Boorman’s semiautobiographical film about his days as a conscript in the British army, has to be counted as something magical. The story is minimal, just a series of events in the…
  • 'Gett’ review: Divorce, Israeli style

    Viviane (Ronit Elkabetz, electrifying) has been trying to get a divorce (a get) for three years, but her spouse, Elisa (Simon Abkarian, very good), simply won’t allow it, though he doesn’t really bother to explain why. Viviane gets about as much respect from the judges as a head of cattle, and her frustration builds as Elisa repeatedly skips his court appearances. The directors (Elkabetz and her brother, Shlomi) confine their film to basically one dingy room, making us feel the claustrophobic anguish of Viviane as she endures years of legal torture. Ronit Elkabetz commands the screen…

Whether the amotivational syndrome exists or not is still controversial; there are still too few poorly controlled small studies that don’t allow a definitive answer. Most people who use marijuana don’t develop this syndrome. The few existing studies suggest that people who user moderate amounts of marijuana show no personality disturbances. In contrast, people who are heavy users of marijuana for a prolonged period of time are characterized as suffering from apathy, dullness, lethargy, and impairment of judgment, i.e. the classic…
  • Democracy is about more than a vote: politics and brand management

    Julia Callaway
    1 Mar 2015 | 3:30 am
    With a General Election rapidly approaching in the UK, it’s easy to get locked into a set of perennial debates concerning electoral registration, voter turnout and candidate selection. In the contemporary climate these are clearly important issues given the shift to individual voter registration, evidence of high levels of electoral disengagement and the general decline in party memberships (a trend bucked by UKIP, the Greens, and the Scottish National Party in recent months). My concern, however, is that democracy has to be about far more than a vote. It’s not just about elections;…
  • Creating a constructive cultural narrative for science

    The Oxford Research Centre for the Humanities (TORCH) is currently running a series of events on Humanities and Science. On 11 February 2015, an Oxford-based panel of three disciplinary experts — Sally Shuttleworth (English Literature), John Christie (History), and Ard Louis (Physics) – shone their critical torchlights on Durham physicist Tom McLeish’s new book Faith and Wisdom in Science as part of their regular ‘Book at Lunchtime’ seminars. How can we understand the relation between science and narrative? Should we even try to? Where can we find and deploy a constructive…
  • Nineteenth and twentieth century Scottish philosophy

    1 Mar 2015 | 12:30 am
    In the history of Britain, eighteenth century Scotland stands out as a period of remarkable intellectual energy and fertility. The Scottish Enlightenment, as it came to be known, is widely regarded as a crowning cultural achievement, with philosophy the jewel in the crown. Adam Smith, David Hume, William Robertson, Thomas Reid and Adam Ferguson are just the best known among an astonishing array of innovative thinkers, whose influence in philosophy, economics, history and sociology can still be found at work in the contemporary academy. The phenomenon of Scottish intellectual life in the…
  • Clarity about ‘the gay thing’

    SoniaT
    28 Feb 2015 | 5:30 am
    Sometimes, we say what we don’t really mean. ‘You look really tired’, for example, when we mean to be caring rather than disparaging of appearance. ‘I thought you were older than that!’ when we mean to applaud maturity rather than further disparage appearance. And so it is with the gay thing. The accidental difference between what people are saying or writing, and their intended meaning, is becoming perplexingly polarized. It’s becoming an issue because respected news sources with style guides to guard the objectivity of their reporting are straying away from neutral. And this, in…

    23 Feb 2015 | 12:38 pm
    DB here: In a Broadway bar, the New York Times drama critic has just told Riggan Thomson that her review will destroy his play. Riggan snatches up her review of another production, reads it quickly, and declares it packed with meaningless “labels.” There’s nothing in here about technique. There’s nothing in here about structure. Nothing here about intention. Happy to oblige, Mr. Thomson. Spoilers ahead.   Structure: Icarus rises Birdman’s plot covers six days at a critical period in Riggan’s life. He’s an over-the-hill movie star identified with playing the…

    Music Land (Disney, 1935). DB here: “The great directors, I’ve learned, have a great sense of rhythm.” So says Alexandre Desplat, who’s again earned two Oscar nominations in the same year (for The Imitation Game and The Grand Budapest Hotel). The statement sounds true but vague. Musicians and musicologists have a firm sense of what the term rhythm means, but how can we understand it in relation to movies? Well, surely it refers, at least, to the rhythm of the music we hear in the film. But we usually think there’s more involved. There’s rhythm in the…

DB here: Here’s a story, so far not finished.   Chapter 1: You can’t put ten pounds of mud in a five-pound sack (Dolly Parton) Once upon a time, before home video and cable, movies were broadcast on television. They might be drawn from local TV stations’ 16mm collections or transmitted from the networks on “movie of the week” shows. When the film was a widescreen film, especially in anamorphic processes, it was adjusted, as we now say, “to fit your screen.” That TV screen was in an aspect ratio of about 1.33:1 (4 x 3), like pre-1950s commercial…

He was inspired by footage of winter sports and some very impressive people breaking the ski jump world record. Beard Face contacted the local council and put forward proposals to turn our garden into the said ski resort. Given how small it is, the lack of a slope, the lack of snow and the beard’s lack of skiing knowledge, the local authority sensibly passed on the opportunity to fund this ridiculous venture.

The Post-Gazette says police they found Davis "severely injured in a pool of blood" and that though his leg was broken, "it was not clear whether it was broken in the car accident or foot pursuit."

    Dave Taylor
    8 Feb 2015 | 3:15 pm
    The British indie film Black Sea is just as much about class relationships , corporations versus individuals and language and cultural barriers as it is a gripping, claustrophobic submarine drama. It’s also really good, with splendid performances and engaging visuals. Robinson (Jude Law) has been a submarine captain for the last thirty years, and when his most recent employer, an underwater salvage company, lets him go with a paltry severance and no prospects, it’s a hard blow for a man who decries “I even sacrificed my family for this job”. His friends in the…

    There’s a certain style of storytelling in a Chinese historical film that requires Western viewers to adjust their perspective and expectations just a bit. A bit of the mythic, an exaggeration for moral and ethical effect, and battles that are always epic and heroes who stagger on and fight until the very end, pulling arrows out of their torso and daring their opponent to stick them with another sword because one wasn’t enough to stop their righteous fury. Viewed through this lens, the new Chinese / Canadian / US production Outcast is a light, enjoyable Chinese tale of heirs…

    Dave Taylor
    5 Feb 2015 | 11:01 pm
    Andy and Lana Wachowski haven’t been able to match the brilliance of their cultural touchstone movie The Matrix with anything else they’ve done. Not with the increasingly banal sequels to the film, and certainly not with the visual f/x abomination Speed Racer. The recent Cloud Atlas was their closest effort, a thoughtful, engaging but ultimately overreaching film based on a twisty book by David Mitchell. Into this troubled oeuvre comes their latest movie, Jupiter Ascending, a science fiction film with epic intentions. And it’s not bad. The story revolves around Russian…
  • Betting on the Academy Award for Best Picture

    Dave Taylor
    3 Feb 2015 | 6:24 am
    The lure of gambling is strong with some people, the desire to pit your predictive skills against someone else and defy the odds to pick the proverbial dark horse and cash in. There are tons of movies about it, including the recently released remake of The Gambler. The slate of 2015 Academy Award nominees for Best Picture don’t include any directly about gambling, but on the other hand isn’t Whiplash about musical competitions that’ll define a career? And isn’t Birdman about a self-referential comeback play that redefines an actor’s life with great drama? Both…
  • Review: Predestination

    Dave Taylor
    16 Jan 2015 | 11:58 am
    Time travel movies generally try to sidestep the fundamental paradox inherent in being able to go back in time: what if you change things and as a result aren’t born? You’ve seen the films where the family portrait slowly fades as one or more children are “unborn” (think Back to the Future), but still, most sci-fi films avoid the issue because it can undermine the sappy love story or whatever else is going on narratively. Go back and read the original time travel story, Verne’s classic The Time Machine and you’ll see how he side-stepped the issue rather…

      Leonard Nimoy has died at the age of 83. He died Friday morning in his Los Angeles home, with his wife by his side, of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.   Nimoy was best known to fans for his role of Spock in Star Trek-- a role he first played in 1966, and continued to embody over the decades, most recently in the J.J. Abrams' pair of Star Trek movies in a crucial role that bridged the old series with the new. But while Spock was...Read MoreRead Comments

But now Marvel's fixed that with a new poster that brings the entire gang together. So what stands out?

With it comes the normal array of spandex clad heroes facing what appears to be a massive army, similar to the first Avengers movie. But hidden in the far corner, just above the Hulk lies a secret to be revealed. Floating above the crew, among the crowd of shadowed figures is one with a long flowing cape.

  • Snyder Reveals 7 member Justice League

    John Kniles
    21 Feb 2015 | 7:12 am
    A new poster for Batman Vs. Superman has just been revealed. It shows Jason Momoa as Aquaman standing prideful behind his Trident. Covering most of the poster are three mysterious words, “Unite The Seven” Like most Zack Snyder movie teasers, the whole thing is dark and looks depressing, but with a strong undercurrent of bad ass. One theory is that the ‘seven’ in question refers to the seven seas. But there are not seven seas, and more importantly this is not an Aquaman movie. It seems unlikely that a movie called Batman Vs. Superman would allow Aquaman anything more than a cameo. In…

    Review by Bob IgnizioIn Walt Disney's BAMBI, the rabbit Thumper quotes his father as saying, “If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all.” If Thumper's dad were reviewing THE LAZARUS EFFECT, it would probably be one sentence: “THE LAZARUS EFFECTis less than an hour and a half long.” At least that's the only nice thing I can find to say about it. Of course film critics have never been the sort to take the advice of Thumper's dad to heart, so I'll elaborate further.

I think I held my breath for the entire 141-minute running time. With intonations of Chekhov (real estate squabbles) and Dostoevsky (crime, punishment), Zvagintsev’s Job-like parable set in Putin’s Russia has an intensity of feeling that seems almost primordial. Although set in present day, LEVIATHAN might as well be taking place…

    Review by Wayne RichardsWHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is a brilliant new comedy from the creative minds of two of New Zealand’s finest and funniest performers. Jemaine Clement (the bespectacled bassist of Flight of the Conchords) has teamed up with Oscar-nominated filmmaker Taiki Waititi (Two Cars, One Night) to make this unrelenting chuckle fest centered on the dilemmas of the modern day vampire. Together, Clement and Waititi have written, directed and starred in a movie that is on par with anything in the pantheon of the great improvisational, mockumentary-style films of Christopher Guest.A…

  • Weekend Box Office Wrap-up: March 1, 2015

    Chris Agar
    1 Mar 2015 | 10:08 am
    It was another slow weekend at the box office, but the former king of ticket sales reclaimed his crown for the time being. Coming in at #1 this weekend is the new crime film Focus (read our review), which opened with $19.1 million. That’s a little bit below the expectations that distributor Warner Bros. had for it, and a sign that even with likable leads like Will Smith and Margot Robbie, a lukewarm critical reception will ultimately hurt your film, regardless of its level of competition. Smith, once a box office lock, has hit a snag in recent years, and that was not rectified by the…

    Similar to 1982’s Tron, The Last Starfighter, released in 1984, was a cult classic science fiction film that has since been praised for being far ahead of its time in terms of using computer generated imagery. Starfighter follows Alex Rogen, who masters an arcade game called Starfighter and discovers the game was created by an alien race as a way to train and recruit new fighters in an intergalactic war. Alex is recruited into the war and must learn to use his skills with real lives on the line. Although Tron has since been revisited in the sequel TRON: Legacy, The Last Starfighter hasn’t…

    Above: French poster for Paris, Texas (Wim Wenders, West Germany/USA, 1984).  Best known in the US for his 1976 poster for Taxi Driver, his controversial cover for Diamond Dogs and his lavish 1974 coffee table book reverie Rocks Dreams, the Belgian artist Guy Peellaert (1934-2008) also had a very fruitful association in the 1980s with German director Wim Wenders. I wrote about Peellert in Film Comment a couple of years ago, but the occasion of the upcoming Wenders retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York seems a good excuse to gather together all the…

The great Charles Laughton may not have been the prettiest of movie stars, but he had a presence that many matinee idols would have killed for (as the current retrospective running at Film Forum will attest). In an era in which glamor was everything, studio marketers may have struggled with how to present Laughton’s unconventional looks and his larger-than-life portrayals of larger-than-life characters (so many monsters, murderers,  tyrants, or simply overbearing…

It seems to mostly center on one man who is the self-proclaimed greatest spear hunter ever, and he even created a museum dedicated to the art of spear hunting, and himself. The guy seems like quite the character, and he’s also a little frightening. Deep in the wilds of rural Alabama, a spear-hunter proclaims…

    Not everybody lives a life with so much activity that it could make an epic story. From crime-beat reporter to World War II soldier to novelist and filmmaker, the aptly titled A Fuller Life tells the epic story of Samuel Fuller, reporter, writer, producer and director. Over the course of eighty-five years, Sam Fuller lived the kind of life that would probably make most people feel exhausted just upon hearing about it. Or perhaps feel belittle by such a vast and at times humbling set of experiences. Fuller did it all, starting as a crime reporter as a teenager, and covering murders and…

Islamic Jihadists have taken over the area, implementing their rules and their form of justice. Through several incidents depicted throughout the film, it shows what can happen when a group takes over a community and their influence has ripple effects, affecting even those that live in the outskirts of Timbuktu.

    “Am I Black enough for you?” Reverend Deke O’Mailey shouts to a crowd in Harlem. “Are you Black enough to hear me?” he asks back. It’s a moniker that becomes a self referential joke throughout the Blaxploitation movie Cotton Comes to Harlem, as other characters ask each other in response to their handling of situations, “Was that Black enough for you?” The phrase is also a great way to embody the attitude of a generation of movies that Cotton Comes to Harlem helped kick start. Released in 1975, it was just five years after the Voting Rights Act…

    I’ve always wondered about master criminals: if they’re so smart and meticulous – studying their jobs to the finest detail and executing with pinpoint precision – why are they criminals to begin with? If these people are so talented at what they do, couldn’t they focus their efforts on more productive (aka legal) means to success? Most crime come as a result of desperation, so if you’re portraying a master lawbreaker cinematically, you better have a darn good reason for their existence. Exhibit A: Focus (2015).

    Somewhere in the tangles of The Lazarus Effect (2015) lies a good movie. It has a few things going for it. It taps into that frightening and very real question that we’ve all thought about: what happens when we die. Whether our souls go on to some form of an afterlife or we sort of linger in nothingness for eternity, the fact that humanity simply doesn’t know what occurs when we cross that boarder is spine tingling. Sadly, the strength of that idea is wasted in a film that doesn’t take full advantage of it. Instead of capitalizing on our fears of death, it downshifts toward mundane…

They still slipped in some oldies in the morning (sometimes), but "31 Days of Oscar" has always been weak on all but the best known 1930s movies, so I’m glad we’re about to move on to March.

    1 Mar 2015 | 11:47 am
    James Franco’s last movie certainly made a lot of headlines, and without going any further into that because we’re all still sick of talking about it, it seems like he has decided to go a bit more low-key for one of his next projects. According to Variety, Franco is in talks to star in Fox’s Why Him?, a comedy about a “Midwestern father who takes his family to visit his daughter” at Stanford, and he “subsequently gets into a competition with his daughter’s boyfriend, a young Internet billionaire.” Presumably, Franco would play the young Internet billionaire, because even…

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nu Image/Millennium’s long-delayed Red Sonja movie has a new writer, suggesting that maybe it’ll actually happen now. Red Sonja, for anyone who doesn’t read comic books about beheading people, is a series that stars a red-haired and mostly naked barbarian woman—the eponymous Red Sonja—who does the sort of things a barbarian would do. She’s mostly known for having red hair and wearing a metal bikini, though. Shockingly, she was created by two men, Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith, who worked on Marvel’s Conan The Barbarian comics in the…

But that seems to be the route that billionaire Haim Saban and his company are taking in the dispute over Power/Rangers, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers fan film created and directed by music video director Joseph Kahn. Perhaps Saban Entertainment will soon overdub their legal action into different languages, so that people throughout the world can call them morons.

One is a “revisionist” version at Disney called Nottingham And Hood, and the other is the set-up for yet another Avengers-style universe at Sony that is hilariously/confusingly titled Hood.

However, if you don’t conquer this fear, it will forever cripple your chances of generating attraction and having a fruitful dating life. The good news is that this fear can be overcome, and it doesn’t require complex steps or rituals. All it takes is a little education, a few clever tips, and a DESIRE to make it a thing of the past.   Republished by Blog Post…

    Demo video produced by Grumo Media. Companies have been trying to find a better way to harness the suns’ energy for decades. And the need for alternative energy sources has never been more pressing. But today’s solar panels wear out in harsh climates and typically only convert a measly 12-14% of sunlight to energy. Part of the problem is that they are made with silicon, an outdated material. If we could find a way to convert more of the sun’s energy, we could literally change the world and take share of this 100 billion dollar industry. Introducing… Graphene, the key to the solar…

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

    In 1983, to coincide with the (then) final chapter of one of the biggest film franchises in history, arcades across the country prominently featured both stand up and sit down versions of Atari’s Star Wars Arcade Game. It’s a first person, on-rails shooter that places the player in the shoes of Luke Skywalker as he pilots his X-wing Fighter through a barrage of Tie Fighters, hostile artillery towers and finally down the iconic Death Star Trench in glorious color vector graphics. I loved it. Still do. Home versions have never been able to do it justice because of its unique yoke…

The original version I saw contained Tony Award winning actresses Joanna Gleeson and Bernadette Peters. That being said, it’s a high standard to live up to.   One of the benefits of movie musicals is the ability to extend the realism from a stage with a forest backdrop to an entire countryside. Along with the great performances, the…

    There is never a shortage of vampire movies, especially these days.  Just in time for Halloween comes another attempt at bringing back the original vampire, Dracula himself.  Unlike many Dracula movies, this one actually succeeds at bringing something new and worthwhile to the table.   The first sign of something new is the setting, sometime in the 1400s, I believe.  Dracula is simply known as Vlad, a human who has been trained especially well at fighting and killing from growing up in the army.  So there is a lot of medieval armor and clothing and fighting; it looks more like Lord…

It’s a taste of the oppositional warfare has become increasingly reliant on guerrilla tactics since Vietnam; ironically, the same tactics that helped America define itself in the 18th century. Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper chronicles Chris Kyle’s decorated career as American’s most deadly sniper while side-stepping political sentiments for a character study.

However, the “establishment” is seemingly undefinable as this expansive neo-noir with a sense of humor explores a chaotic series of events through the purple hazed eyes of the burned-out private detective, Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix).

    In an exclusive interview with E!, Kristin Davis, the actress who plays the role of Charlott York-Goldenblatt, is in for a third Sex and the City movie. “We want to do it!,” she says. Back in October, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis started the rumor that there was another movie in the making and got us all excited. Well, “”I think we’d all like to do it again,” Kristin Davis told E! last night at Vanity Fair and Barneys New York’s Oxfam dinner at Chateau Marmont.

    More famous for Disney’s animation success “Frozen” in which Josh Gad proved his dialogue delivery as the most creative snowman “Olaf”, he finally gets to prove his physical acting abilities on the screen in The Wedding Ringer. A little bit of junk food entertainment is provided in this feature film but it has some freakishly funny moments. Josh Gad has broken the barrier and proven his talents as an actor. The Story Josh plays the character Doug who is a successful lawyer and winds up engaged to the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting). He does have a few…

    So Good It's Awesome

  • Erik the Viking (1989) - Review

    Bobby Brake
    16 Feb 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Erik the Viking is a fairly poorly made TV movie that serves as a decent intro course to Norse mythology.  If you have an interest in mythology or are just a really really huge Tim Robbins fan, then I guess it’s worth a shot.  I’m don’t really fall into either category, so I can tell you that this movie isn’t really for me.The biggest flaw in this film, besides its expectedly horrible production values, is the confused tone.  You can tell that it desperately wants to be Monty Python, but just doesn’t have the screenwriting to back this up.  As for me... I’m not…
  • 50 Shades of Grey (2015) - Review

    Bobby Brake
    15 Feb 2015 | 12:00 pm
    This movie is complete smut!Just kidding.  Well, I mean, not really; this movie is unnecessarily trashy and immensely stupid, but I don’t find it immoral in the slightest.  Never mind the complete absurdity of finding a movie immoral or somehow a slight against your unfailing religion, but I’m not really sure how anybody can be upset with this movie (or the book, if it’s anything like this).  All that’s here is some soap-opera-level melodrama, some of the worst dialogue ever put to screen, and a heap of incredibly tame middle-aged woman porn.Miss Anastasia Steele is but…
  • After Earth (2013) - Review

    Bobby Brake
    14 Feb 2015 | 12:00 pm
    There’s no getting around it: M. Night Shyamalan is a complete and utter laughing stock in Hollywood.  Everyone has a different jumping off point (for me, it’s after Signs) and similarly everyone has their opinions on whether his bad movies are funny in their incompetence or not (my opinion: usually), but few people argue that the films in the latter half of his filmography are any good at all.  I’m fully on board with that, but I’m not willing to concede that After Earth is his worst movie; I’m not even convinced that it’s really that bad of a movie.But to understand…

    Hey there, found footage!  Long time, no see!  Why did you come back again?Huh?  No way.  It couldn’t have been because someone wanted you here.  I’m very sure of that.V/H/S/2 was released a mere year after the first one, presumably because critics were mesmerized and unable to be satiated by the deluge of masterfully directed found footage movies.  Or because they the creators gripping, in vain, on a quickly-drying cash cow, hoping to make a quick buck for a limited amount of effort.Now, now, that’s not completelyfair.  This movie is marginally better…
  • Darkness: The Teen Space Vampire Saga (1999) - Review

    Bobby Brake
    12 Feb 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Darkness: The Teen Space Vampire Saga, or simply Teenage Space Vampires as it’s known on IMDb, is not worth your time.  It may look like a shitty direct-to-video film, and it is.  It may look like a cheap and completely transparent attempt at cashing in on the gullibility of the Twilight fanbase, and it is certainly that as well.  You might even think that it possesses the “so bad, it’s good” (as opposed to So Good, It’s Awesome) nature of the aforementioned sparkle vamp series.  Sadly, that’s where your lucky guessing streak would end.Uh-huh.Straight for…

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 152 Dirty Dancing

    22 Feb 2015 | 3:44 pm
    This week Matt and Mark embark on a voyage of teenage girl wish fulfillment and for our listeners, do not come up empty handed. To be as dismissive of this film as Ebert is would be to do it injustice. Just like elves and trolls are to adolescent boys, Johnny Castle is to adolescent girls. So what if the archetype is implausible? Doesn't matter. Whether it be a teenage vampire, an s&m billionaire, or a dance virtuoso at a blue blood Catskills resort, all that matters is they see Baby in the corner and lament whoever it is that put her there.Download: 152 Dirty Dancing
  • 151 The Raid: Redemption

    16 Feb 2015 | 6:30 am
    A film of choreography, physical expression, and near musical rhythm, The Raid: Redemption serves up kung fu style violence as a Bollywood film serves up its musical numbers. This not a film about violence, don't make that mistake, this is a film whose medium is violence. There's really no morality tale, despite the title. So if you're craving a blitz of gonzo chop socky, The Raid Redemption is for you!Download: 151 The Raid: Redemption
  • 150 Zardoz

    2 Feb 2015 | 6:38 am
    We were going to get around to discussing Zardoz sooner or later, and now is the time! Matt and Mark review this most awesome Boorman cult classic and wade deep into the questions its Sci-Fi world creates. Zardoz plays wit the idea of utopia and immortality in a way that makes us question humanity's relationship with the death. What is life without death? So boring you'll pray for the sweat death, apparently, even if meted out by a gang of mankini wearing Brutals from the Outlands.Download: 150 Zardoz
  • 149 Beetlejuice

    25 Jan 2015 | 10:12 pm
    This week Matt and Mark review the Tim Burton breakout Beetlejuice, a surreal ghost story that explores the mechanics and absurdest bureaucracy of being dead. A showcase for Burton's imaginative film making, many dismissed the film as gag-driven and style-over-substance (including a one R.Ebert). Matt and Mark disagree. To make work, even awkwardly, some of Beetlejuice's bizarre spectacle is to succeed. Must we regurgitate Dante every time we conjure the afterlife? The answer is "Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse".Download: 149 Beetlejuice
  • 148 Buckaroo Banzai

    20 Jan 2015 | 8:31 pm
    This week we tackle the beloved Buckaroo Banzai on The Cult of Matt and Mark. Unarmed with its plentiful quotes and sound drops, Matt feels we may have let the fanboys down on this one. Mark however takes a more measured and less apologetic approach. Just because Banzai might not occupy your childhood nostalgia, does not mean this fecund space farce's Tolkien-esque mythology cannot be respected and enjoyed. So monkey boys, head into the way-back machine and enjoy the 80's pop-rock stylings of the Hong Kong Cavaliers.Download: 148 Buckaroo Banzai

The fifth season of American Horror Story is supposedly subtitled Hotel, and what’s more, Lady Gaga is set to be a star in the show. This recent news is not unlike the slow trickle of info that Murphy gives out every year; the race to follow the breadcrumbs is often more interesting than the season itself, like the recent Freak Show.

    By the time New Year’s Evil came out in 1980, Halloween, Christmas, and Friday the 13th had been spoken for. It was a big time for holiday horror, and the oft-forgotten New Year’s Eve got its big break with Emmett Alston’s directorial debut: taking a cue from John Carpenter, he took one of the staple-points of the holiday, the countdown to the New Year, and made it into a sinister race to find a killer before he murders again at midnight in each time zone. It’s a surprisingly ambitious idea, to be honest; in later years, slasher films would adopt the holiday formula…

  • How I Budget for the TCM Classic Film Festival

    Raquel Stecher
    11 Feb 2015 | 6:00 am
    There are two common complaints about the TCM Classic Film Festival: 1) it's too expensive and 2) it's too far away. For those who live near L.A. the expense isn't nearly as great as it is for someone who is traveling internationally or from the east coast.I made these same complaints online in 2012. My wallet was constantly being emptied due to the costs involved with my wedding and honeymoon and on top of that I was hit with many unexpected medical bills. I still really wanted to go to TCMFF but at that time I couldn't make it happen. However, I was determined to go in 2013. And not only…

    Next month I will be attending back-to-back film festivals. I’m starting with Cinefest 35 in upstate New York and then heading out almost immediately to Hollywood for the TCM Classic Film Festival. I’ll be reporting here on this blog about the events I attend at both festivals. I foresee a lot of caffeinated beverages in my future.Cinefest is a yearly festival celebrating the early days of film history. Most of the films screened are silents or from the early talkie era. This is the last hurrah for Cinefest which is currently in it’s 35th and final year. I couldn’t pass up one final…

    WARNING! BLOODY SPOILERS HAVE BEEN SPILLED! WARNING! I discovered this movie a couple of months ago on Upcoming Horror Movies‘ website. There was a Facebook link and that led me to Black Fawn Distribution’s website. I hit the Internet and found some reviews. I wanted to get a sense of whether this flick was any good before I tried for a review copy. That’s my reviewing MO. It cuts down on the amount of “bad movies” I might end up reviewing otherwise. Luckily most reviews were glowing, and even luckier I was able to get a copy to review. Technically you could…

Frankenstein (1931) and The Mummy (1932) never interested me and Bela Lugosi’s Dracula (1931) didn’t do a thing for me either.

By the time Season One of Young Justice was done and over, at the time, as I mentioned in the review of that season, I had only seen the opening two-parter, the ending episode and a couple of episodes in the middle, and I was left kind of luke warm to not overly interested in the show as a whole. When news first circulated about Season Two, the first thing that kind of got me “back in the game,” so to speak, was the ‘Invasion’ subtitle being added. What I instantly took from this was that Season Two was going to be “different”…

It’s the middle of January 2015 now, everyone else published their top 10 lists weeks ago, and the Oscar nominations were announced this morning.

    With the exception of being a Hollywood production (even if it’s a Hollywood production for video), Turbo Charged plays like an amateurish short movie make on an iMac. The kind of thing iMovie was great for back in the late nineties–lots of imaginative transitions, the omnipresent music so there doesn’t need to be any dialogue or even sound recording. And at the center of Turbo Charged is movie star Paul Walker. He doesn’t have any lines, he just has to walk around, just has to run from the cops (he’s on the run, a rogue undercover cop, or so all the national…

When I did see it, it was because Nicheflix had it as a rental. I remember it being long and boring and not particularly good. I wish I had made a list of all the things I wanted to see in my teens because I independently thought they were supposed to be good. Strangely enough, the STALINGRAD post gets a lot of readers.

The film is out from Criterion now, but at the time, it was only available in R2. Maybe Masters of Cinema; it was a Nicheflix rental. I’d heard about it for years–maybe it was even covered in a film book from undergrad–but I had never gotten around to seeing it. The PANDORA’S BOX post doesn’t get much in the way of readers.

    Home from the Hill (1960, Vincente Minnelli) 2006 HOME FROM THE HILL was one of the first Eleanor Parker moves I saw, mostly because it was available on VHS. Though I might not have seen it on VHS, but bought it on laserdisc right off. I can’t remember. Pan and scan must ruin it, of course. The laserdisc was a decent MGM/UA transfer, really nice packaging. I think it opened up (instead of two discs in one jacket). As far as the post’s readership, HOME FROM THE HILL does okay. Hopefully someone read about it after Eleanor Parker passed, saw it. The Seven-Ups (1973, Philip…

    Blue Dream runs just under five minutes. Until the end, I didn’t realize the protagonist isn’t a protagonist in a fictional story; rather Blue Dream is a very stylish documentary short. Elekes’s direction is fantastic; great Panavision-aspect composition. Great photography, great editing. And music. Elekes does almost all of it and the stuff he doesn’t do on his own, József Gallai helps with. The short follows swimmer Kinga Galambos, who’s actually a real person. It makes a difference. It changes how Blue Dream plays; it goes from a short where the narration is…

Some producer or marketing "genius" probably figured since they were updating Shakespeare's tale with biker gangs, it was a good idea to remind people about Sons of Anarchy. Whatever. Smarter heads have prevailed, and the title has been changed

    We've seen this story before. A simple man versus the gods and insurmountable odds. Apotheon strips this ancient story to its very bones and what results is a very simple plot which is easy to follow. Story isn't Apotheon's bread and butter and it understands that by limiting story to brief conversations which serve to give you objectives to accomplish. This is an admirable trait as players who play Apotheon will do it for the bloody gameplay. Basically, the gods have abandoned humanity, causing death and destruction on Earth and Nikandreos with the help of Zeus' wife Hera, in an act of…

It is in many ways a family movie injected with thrilling action and some surprisngly moving emotional work. The thing that sets this apart from other movies in the same genre is its emphasis on characters and their humanity.

However, some people return as no longer human.The short synopsis above, as trippy and crazy as its sounds, is exactly what the movie is about. In more ways than one, the movie is over the top bizzarre, features strange and uncanny humor and is edgy as much as it is crazy. It is also some parts cheesy and some parts silly but the best thing about it is that the movie knows it is that kind of film and delivers on that concept on all fronts. Well,…

    Well, some might call it a music video but Bowie has been at this for far to long to throw out anything so "crass". And given his latest set of videos seem to be ruthlessly ridiculing the odd rumours about him that have circulated since his "retirement" 10 years ago... The video to the new single "The Stars (are out tonight)" proves no different. While the music shows a more than solid return to form. Musically closer perhaps to Outside then his previously released single which lay closer to the rather maudlin "Hours", the video features British actor Tilda Swinton, directed with Floria…

The How I Met Your Mother star is a song and dance man who has done a great job of hosting the Tonys and the Emmys in the past so it was reasonable to expect a bit of razzle-dazzle from Harris as host.

    Maps to the Stars by Hope Madden Who but David Cronenberg could take the bubbling Hollywood cesspool that is Maps to the Stars and create from it a chilly but fascinating snapshot of industry dysfunction? The truth is that Bruce Wagner’s screenplay requires Cronenberg’s anthropological approach and perverse sense of humor. Without it, he’s written a vulgar soap opera. With it, he’s written a revoltingly compelling, oddly austere essay on the self-indulgent, self-congratulatory, fraudulent, repugnant, insecure insanity that is Hollywood. The story itself couldn’t be more lurid, which…

    I made several efforts to make 2015 a more fruitful and rewarding year than the previous one – I went to Pink Sister’s Convent at Tagaytay, wore something red on my first day at work, and even ate a significant amount of round fruits and sticky rice cakes on New Year’s eve (at the expense of my New Year’s resolution). In one of my earlier posts, I’ve also told you that part of my efforts was

    “Meh”. That was what I thought to myself after leaving the cinema. A few months ago, Jupiter Ascending looked promising judging by its trailers, although I instinctively managed my expectations knowing that this is going to be one of those “You are the chosen one and the fate of all depends on you” kind of movie. But hey, I’m a sucker for sci-fi so it wasn’t really a question whether I should

Censorship and cinema regulation is ridiculously silly, Japanese porn does a better job at blurring. The Rant before the Review What’s up with all the awkward blurring and screen-blocks when the films already got an R-18 rating? I don’t know about you but I think 18-year olds are already

  • Amour Fou

    Eli Andersen
    18 Feb 2015 | 7:37 am
    Doomed passion in Romantic-era Berlin would have most filmmakers reaching dutifully for the grand traditions of historical sweep, candle-lit interiors and an indulgence in every visual splendour of the time. In detailing the famed suicide pact between disaffected poet Heinrich von Kleist and timid hausfrau Henriette Vogel, Jessica Hausner’s film is instead a drily funny, strange and austerely composed chamber piece, and all the more intriguing for it. Early 19th century Berlin is gritting its teeth as a wave of Francophile ideals, fashions and philosophies disperse across Europe, an odious…

    January 27 2015 marked 70 years since the liberation of Auschwitz. Since the end of WWII, Cinema’s capacity to comprehend the industrial-scale murder of the European Jews has been tested in films by turns mawkish and monolithic. The Holocaust has been filmed in manifold different ways and its representation invites all kinds of questions, not least what is appropriate when dealing with something so unprecedented in history, our civilisation’s black mark and a seemingly anomalous moment of unreality existing outside what we thought ourselves capable of. The presence of the Holocaust in…

    Sailor Jerry has launched a new short film, ‘Here’s To Life Outside The Lines’ – celebrating spirit of rebellion through an unofficial lineage of road trips, choppers and wild times. ‘Here’s To Life OutsideThe Lines’ brings to life the philosophy of those who stand up for what they believe in and boldly live life on their own terms. Rather than assemble a cast through traditional talent agencies, the Sailor Jerry team reached out to people in bars and motorcycle clubs to find people who lived the spirit espoused by the rum. The film features a montage of new and archival footage…

    Remember Keaton in Batman? Sure you do; that pouting mouth, those ridiculous eyebrows, the dull-eyed ebb of all artistic integrity, draining, bitterly slow, as soul is traded for merchandising opportunity. Oh, not that last one? You sure? Then that sounds like a job for Super-Existentialist-Man! Alejandro González Iñárritu’s latest is the ‘single-take’ story of Riggan (Keaton) some years on from his breakthrough hit as Birdman. Fame has left him a slow-crumbling booze-addled wreck. Since the smash hit Birdman trilogy he’s lost nigh on all professional integrity, and finds himself…
  • Explore a cold and empty void – Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

    John Underwood
    7 Nov 2014 | 4:07 am
    Somewhere between The Dark Knight and Inception Christopher Nolan became the people’s auteur. Walking the tightrope between critical dismissal and commercial unviability with near-impeccable balance, he’s mastered the art of making philosophical action flicks – or, if you prefer, thinky films that just happen to have a lot of things blowing up. Interstellar ought to be the apotheosis of this form, combining musings on the nature of spacetime and reality with rockets, wormholes and a classically Spielbergian family drama. Unfortunately, what it actually is is 169 minutes of nonsense.

The trailer for Save Yourself employs not only the best use of the Stabbing Westward song of the same name but also looks like a glorious bloody time.

However, there was also confusion and concern about the announcement. Fox was planning to make a TV show about Lucifer, the ruler of hell, and we all saw how a network could fumble the ball with something like this when they couldn’t make Constantine work. Well, Deadline reported today that Lucifer has cast Tom Ellis (Rush) in the lead role. That isn’t the troubling part of the news. Check out the synopsis description: Lucifer (Ellis),…

Through the magic of Twitter, Marvel just released a few new character posters of Nick Fury, Black Widow, and Thor. These were all put out by Sam Jackson, who seems excited about the new movie, and maybe this excitement is because he is still trying to convince Marvel to extend his deal, which is just about up.

This was a huge shock for people who grew up recognizing Daredevil from his iconic red (and yellow before that) costume. However, Daredevil showrunner Steven S.

    Unlike other critics I was excited for john wick just like I'm always excited about Keanu Reeves films. Some may say that reeves lost the money making talent with his recent box office failures, I'm not one of those people.John WickJohn wick had this unlike approach to it, something we have not seen for a long time. That is because john wick was the directorial premiere of its two directors Chad Stahelski, David Leitch.

    The first time I encountered Wolves was a trailer that Screen Rant shared on their FB wall. First impression was a sort of ambivalent one. On one hand you have Werewolves; I have a weakness for the genre no matter what it is whether its Werewolves or vampires I need to see it no matter how bad it is (not saying this film was bad). On the other hand the lead seemed to be too good for the role; the guy looked too clean like a boy scout. Eventually what shifted the balance was Jason Momoa as the villainous werewolf.

Previously we encountered Defiance which we barely survived its first season while the second was too big of a request. Another show that made a great first impression was Helix but it was only a mirage and we quit on the show after 4 episodes. Ascesion is a completely different story.  Ascesion The first part of the miniseries presented to us an interesting idea where a group of…

And there’s only one way to commemorate Kevin Bacon Wednesdays; by watching an Ethan Hawke movie! Predestination is not a prequel to Final Destination, but an Australian sci-fi film about a Temporal Agent, or “Time Cop” if you will.

For the most part, this French horror film is an effective exercise in terror. The generic home invasion riff is nicely executed by director Alexandre Aja, who has subsequently been snapped up by Hollywood. Wisely, they’ve not remade Switchblade Romance. Yet. This grizzly slasher acknowledges its debt to nasty classics of the genre, making it The Toulouse Chain Saw Massacre. Or wherever it’s meant to…

We start out the movie meeting Bianca, (Mae Whitman) a happy high school senior who is perfectly happy being the tomboy among her prettier friends (Skyler Samuels & Bianca Santos).

    A sample of the new racially diverse Apple emoji As most of you are aware, people have been up in arms, ever since the first emoji made an appearance in 1998, about the lack of cultural diversity in the ideograms originally created by Shigetaka Kurita. The lack of sensitivity in these so-called emoji is to be expected since the Japanese have long been known for being unfriendly to outsiders and other cultures, and Mr. Kurita continued this trend of intolerance by creating the emoji to only be inclusive of the Japanese people. But Apple, an American company, has stepped in to correct the…

    Some of you may have been worried that you wouldn’t be able to increase your douchiness enough by getting the Apple Watch, but since Apple is the leader in innovation, they foresaw the need from the hipster community and decided to include a gold edition which will cost thousands of dollars, hence necessitating the installation of jewelry-store type security once the new watches are available through Apple Stores. Imagine that! You’ll be able to act like a douche even before getting the Apple Watch. You can stand around in the store looking smug while an Apple employee scurries to the…

    Summary for Android fansDon’t worry. Q2 2015 will certainly be a terrible one for Apple. Don’t worry. Q2 2015 will certainly be a terrible one for Apple. Indeed, as the heading of the article says, the numbers of Apple’s first quarter of the 2015 fiscal year are impressive, which is really odd, because Steve Jobs has been dead for a while, yet Apple has yet to starts is death-spiral. Regardless, let’s take a look at the numbers. In a record-breaking quarter, Apple earned $74.6 billion in revenue, resulting in $18 billion in profits. These numbers beat Apple’s own forecast which…

    Now that the first season of Marvel’s Agent Carter has concluded, it’s time for Marvel’s sophomore show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., to return. The season two mid-season premiere is this Tuesday, but you can watch the first clip below, right now. The mid-season premiere is titled “Aftershocks,” probably in reference to the events of the mid-season finale in which Skye becomes Inhuman. Here’s the synopsis for the mid-season premiere: “After discovering an alien city with ties to his resurrection, Coulson and his team destroyed it before the forces of Hydra…

    DC Entertainment has always liked meta-casting in their TV shows. Most recently, they cast John Wesley Shipp – the star of the original Flash TV show – as Barry Allen’s dad on The CW’s The Flash. Now, DC has cast Helen Slater and Dean Cain in unknown guest-starring roles on the first season of CBS’s Supergirl TV series. Slater previously played Supergirl on the big screen in the 1984 movie Supergirl, and Cain played Superman on ABC’s TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. They both guest-starred on Smallville way back in the day, and…

    LEGO has several licensing agreements for properties like Batman, Jurassic Park, and Indiana Jones, but the most important, and biggest, one is Star Wars. The LEGO Star Wars games have put LEGO on the map in gaming for movie tie-ins and now they are looking to make a similar impact in television. THR reports Disney has partnered with LEGO once again to retell the Star Wars saga, but instead of re-releasing the Star Wars LEGO games, Disney XD will air a five-episode LEGO miniseries, titled LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales, that will recap the entire Star Wars saga and lead into J.J.

For the first time since Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks released, back in 2005, are Brutalities going to be prominent in a Mortal Kombat game. I’m not counting Li Mei’s fatality in Mortal Kombat Deception as a Brutality for this article, because she was the only character who had it. While NeatherRealm is bringing Brutalities back, they will be slightly different than before, but mostly the same: they will occur at the end of the match and not after the “Finish…

    pk follows director Rajkumar Hirani's signature template - formulaic, longish, with the regular song and dance routine (which by the way doesn't break the pace), homing in on a social message that rings with the masses. This time Hirani makes a commentary on the religious beliefs that mold our identity as individuals. The premise isn't much of a surprise after the recently-released religious satire OMG. But Hirani narrates his story in the most gripping, entertaining way. The humor is mostly subtle, dialogues incisive and with Aamir Khan's perfect timings, pk is easily one of the better films…

Despite the aberrations, it's the kind of film I wouldn't mind watching again. It's witty, often refreshing and effortlessly manages to keep you involved.I Hate Luv Storys tried a similar spin, spoofing romcoms, but failed miserably. It's too insignificant to even merit a comparison with this one.Saif Ali Khan here is pitch-perfect as Yudi.

    Once again, Australia does it better."Call me Max again and I'll blow yourflippin' head off!!!!The Australian answer to the zombie craze comes in the form of an over the top horror/action/comedy called Wyrmwood. The film is an amalgamation of The Road Warrior, Dawn of the Dead, and The Evil Dead franchise all wrapped up into a gore saturated package that makes The Walking Dead look the boring and plotless show that its turned out to be.

From the first few seconds of the film, she bloodies herself and everyone around her in an oversaturated action flick that never tries to be anything its not.

In her Pre-code performances Shearer is not relegated to a supportive role nor is she doomed to a one-dimensional outlook or perpetually unalterable journey. In most cases she is in a constant struggle between a life of sexual and emotional liberation and an existence of a conventional wife and mother. Some might say in even a ‘soulful’ or ‘brooding’ manner. Her adventures through films from 1929 to 1934 are constantly peppered by the standard…

However, this highly anticipated and talented actress only appeared in pictures for four years, retiring to engross herself in her many and sadly short-lived marriages.

  • History of The Best Picture Oscar: Who Won And What We Remember

    Alexander Miller
    26 Feb 2015 | 4:00 am
    Awarding movies with titles like “Best Picture” is a bit of an overstatement when you consider what goes into making a movie. And when you look through the winners over the years it’s frequently a surprise when you see who won, and the films that got snubbed. For example, 1998 is the year when Steven Spielberg shocked us with his WWII movie Saving Private Ryan, and yet Shakespeare in Love walked away with the Oscar for Best Picture. And this pattern repeats itself more often than not, if you look at the timeline. DISCLAIMER: The intention of this article is not to…

First thing you notice here are the excellent production values. Everything looks exceptionally detailed and visually gratifying. If anything, it seems worth a matinee viewing. It also…

    by Tony Dayoub Director Ava Duvernay smartly avoids the usual obstacles filmmakers have encountered when bringing the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. to the screen. Selma avoids all the pitfalls of the traditional biopic by instead focusing on a particularly reprehensible flashpoint in the American Civil Rights struggle, the events surrounding March 7, 1965, "Bloody Sunday," and how they ultimately led to the passing of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. By homing in on this historical moment, Duvernay is able to give us a snapshot of the era, put us in the shoes of African American activists, the…

  • Movie Review: Penguins of Madagascar (2014)

    27 Nov 2014 | 10:21 am
    by Tony Dayoub The mistake made with the holiday release of Penguins of Madagascar is a common one. Expanding the franchise by spinning off its comic relief into his/her/their own project rarely works. It's the reason Seinfeld's Kramer never got his own show. Or the reason Happy Days floundered once Ron Howard left the show and it became all about the Fonz. Eccentric sidekicks are often so potent that they overwhelm the story, and it's no different with Madagascar's four lovable clowns, Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico (Conrad Vernon) and Private (Christopher Knights).
  • RIP Mike Nichols

    23 Nov 2014 | 6:25 am
    by Tony Dayoub "Nichols discovered within himself a natural talent for drawing good work out of actors and for guiding playwrights through rewrites without making them feel threatened or trampled. He also found, to his own surprise, a kind of emotional comfort at being at the center of the action. 'I think people try to become famous because they think: If you can get the world to revolve around you, you won't die,' he remarked to a reporter. The comment typified the way Nichols handled himself with a press corps that was insatiably curious about his life with and without Elaine May—it was…

    It’s lonely at the top, and being one of the rarest and most strategically capable personality types, INTJs know this all too well. INTJs form just two percent of the population, and women of this personality type are especially rare, forming just 0.8% of the population - it is often a challenge for them to find like-minded individuals who are able to keep up with their relentless intellectualism and chess-like maneuvering. People with the INTJ personality type are imaginative yet decisive, ambitious yet private, amazingly curious, but they do not squander their energy. NOTHING CAN STOP…

    You strive to please others and will compromise anyway you can. War or conflict bothers you, and you will do anything to keep the peace. You are a good mediator and a true negotiator. Sometimes you do too much, trying so hard to make people happy. While you keep the peace, you tend to be secretly judgmental. You lose respect for people who don’t like to both give and take. On the flip side, you’ve got a great sense of humor and wit. You’re always diplomatic and able to give good advice. Souls you are most compatible with: Warrior Soul, Hunter Soul and Visionary Soul

  • Fifty Shades of Grey

    22 Feb 2015 | 3:32 pm
    Fifty Shades of Grey     "Fifty Shades of Grey" is a picture that not only tests my moral judgement as a critic--and as a human being for that matter--but it seems to be the quintessential temptation to lure me into breaking my golden rule of thumb. The foundation of my career in film criticism is based on the conviction that the subject matter of a film is somewhat irrelevant, as the structure enshrouding it should be the focal point.    However, it is not the structure of "Fifty Shades of Grey" that perturbs me, but its content, which is essentially a depraved…

    19 Feb 2015 | 11:53 pm
    The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water     To say that a film's title exhibits little significance in this day and age would be a complete understatement, as one would have to go back at least twenty years to find a plethora of instances where a designation indicated more than just a simple restatement of events, or even worse, a lead character's name or attribute. I guess this is due to the fact that it is quite effortless to do so and much easier on the minds of Americans, who evidently have no capacity to think beyond a grade school level.    "The SpongeBob…

    Lilo & Stitch      Somewhere along the lines of the creative process of Disney's greatest imaginations came a spur of the moment thought: For once, let us shed the modish and rather reserved boundaries of previous creations and indulge in a separate, and inhuman, route for adolescent intrigue. Thus, Stitch was born.    "Lilo & Stitch" not only finds its way in a film that has several miscalculations, but it accomplishes its success through irregular techniques, that is, uncommon to Disney. The indulgence in an unconventional lead protagonist is not the only…

    Selma     "I cannot hide."    These three words faultlessly describe a man, of not only a rabid intellect, but one with a heart of pure charisma and pride. It is true that Martin Luther King Jr. was the face of this profound statement in human history, but beyond being the initiator of a seemingly unstoppable force, he was a family man with a deep respect for religion and humanity, itself; an aspect expressed almost too well in one of the best pictures of the year.    It is a rather disheartening feeling when watching "Selma," a film that chronicles the…

It is quite a romanticized notion to believe that a children's picture could ever sustain a message as powerful as the one found in "Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron," yet it does, and in such a way that speaks directly to the human soul. What Dreamworks has created here, is a film that will stand the test of time, simply because we need it to.    Spirit is a young…

    Is the named director of a film the one who's actually been calling the shots? Here are 11 where a 'ghost director' may have been involved. The Lists It's not that uncommon for a director to take their name off a film, and to leave the moniker Alan Smithee or whatever the current equivalent is behind. However, what's considerably rarer is when a film is released under the name of one director, but it's later revealed or rumored that, actually, other hands were at work, either for a solid chunk or even the entirety of a production. That a film was, for want of a better phrase,…

    A 1980s sci-fi classic? The last film Arnold Schwarzenegger made before he got really powerful? Guilty on both counts, Simon argues... Feature There's presumably, somewhere, an essay to be written on how the story of The Running Man was the latest to offer a tantalising prediction of the reality television epidemic that would have taken over TV schedules within 20 years of its release. Is it prescience on the level of The Truman Show? Probably not. But to the best of our knowledge, The Truman Show didn't feature a major action superstar clad in lycra.

Based on the novel by George Barr McCutcheon, that was published in 1902, there have, to date, been ten screen adaptations of it (not including television projects). They range from the first, a 1914 adaptation directed by Cecil B De Mille and Oscar Apfel, through arguably the highest profile, the Richard Pryor-headlined version that landed in 1985.

    Once again, Australia does it better."Call me Max again and I'll blow yourflippin' head off!!!!The Australian answer to the zombie craze comes in the form of an over the top horror/action/comedy called Wyrmwood. The film is an amalgamation of The Road Warrior, Dawn of the Dead, and The Evil Dead franchise all wrapped up into a gore saturated package that makes The Walking Dead look the boring and plotless show that its turned out to be. Wyrmwood sets out to give the zombie trend a mainlined dose of action infused originality. It does so by blending themes and tropes from other…

    Salma Hayek chops, cuts, swings, blasts, and mutilates her way through Everly. "I told you to stop staringat my boobs."Salma brings forth one of her best and violently outrageous efforts in years. From the first few seconds of the film, she bloodies herself and everyone around her in an oversaturated action flick that never tries to be anything its not. Everly is straight up, bombastic, gore filled cinematic eye candy that's rooted in every exploitive action film of the last twenty years. Try not to think because Everly is big dumb, volatile female led fun that never lets up. No one…

Dipping into the endless well of almost every horror trope to hit the screen, The Lazarus Effect is just a mildly effective mid-winter weekend release that quickly becomes tainted by poor character development, poor choices, hackneyed plot points, and a cast that truly struggles to…

    Politics is often known to be scandalous, however I never thought a drama related to politics could be so intense that it would leave me binging for hours on end as soon as the new season is finally released onto Netflix. The Netflix original series, House of Cards, is the only series in the last few years that has managed to grip me as much as Games of Throne and Breaking Bad. One of the main reasons for the shows success is the superb central performance from Kevin Spacey (two Oscars, one BAFTA, one Golden Globe) who winds back the years with his brutal depiction of Frank Underwood, a…

    Michael S. Ojeda’s Avenged is a movie that has struck the perfect combination between classic exploitation films and modern horror, combining the sweeping shots of dusty isolated highways and murderous (vaguely incestuous) families of the 70’s with today’s modern technology and supposedly tolerant social views. Avenged tells the story of Zoe (Amanda Adrienne), a beautiful young deaf woman, who is travelling through the south-west of America when she stumbles upon a pack of rednecks, led by Trey (Rodney Rowland) and West (Tom Ardavany), murdering two Native American men.

A tale so grim, that even when the man at its centre retold it no one believed him. That man was Alexander Pearce, the yarn was his escape from Hells Gates, the filmmaker was Jonathan auf der Heide, and the movie was Van Diemen’s Land. Why is it so grim? Why is it a big deal? Van Diemen’s Land is a true story of cannibalism and an unglamourised glimpse into the nature of Australia’s early history as a…

Though a rather calm and collected film once it gets going, The Wild Affair opens with some truly bonkers credits that feature a series of still photos of Kwan, staid and serene on one side…

    “I’ve got knives in my eyes, I’m going home sick.” The first film comparison that came to mind while watching Brick was that of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. It has the same type of unusual, anachronistic dialog paired with teens. I understand what director Rian Johnson is aiming for with the film – the hardboiled noir style – juxtaposed against the landscape of a California high school. Still, I can never get past the stilted delivery of the lines. It’s as if all the actors are putting on a stage play for every scene, and reading their lines…

It felt like a very flat version of a Farrelly Brothers comedy. Kingpin is a much better version of this type of “simpleton goes into the world” story. Bowfinger is a much better Steve Martin comedy.

  • Ejecta Review

    Matt Donato
    1 Mar 2015 | 2:16 pm
    Calling back to the minimalist sci-fi stories of yesteryear, Ejecta blends found footage camerawork with an Area 51-esque experiment that wants to prove the existence of alien lifeforms. Penned by genre favorite Tony Burgess (Pontypool/Septic Man), it’s a story about paranoia that hits on a possession arc we typically see connected to exorcisms and demonic overtakings – but it’s not one that dares to push the envelope. What’s been said about extraterrestrial invasions is restated by Ejecta in a lot of the same ways, which only reminds us of past films that have…
  • Box Office Report: Focus Steals #1 Spot With Soft Opening

    Will Smith and Margot Robbie’s romantic caper film Focus easily topped the North American box office this weekend, although with a milder debut than expected. The heist flick opened with an estimated $19.1 million, which is solid for a film about con artists, but pretty tepid for Will Smith’s standards. In the last 10 years, only one film with the Fresh Prince headlining has opened worse: 2008’s Seven Pounds ($14.9 million). Despite an appealing marketing campaign, a lack of competition, IMAX theaters and the presence of co-star Margot Robbie, Focus couldn’t even top…

Joined by the apparently omnipresent David James, Dom and Liam discuss biopic exhaustion, why Eddie Redmayne should’ve really won the Oscar for Jupiter Ascending, and whether there was anything on at Sundance this year that was actually worth watching (spoilers: there was).

    In recent weeks, a lot of breaking movie and TV news has struck later in the day than usual. Of course, there’s no set pattern for Hollywood’s behavior, but casting and greenlight exclusives are definitely on the rise during twilight hours. This swift change hasn’t bypassed the actors who work within the industry, either, as Aquaman star Jason Momoa was just as taken aback as the rest of us when his Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice director Zack Snyder posted the first image of Momoa as the underwater king. “That was a shocker for sure,” he told…

    A brand new Robin Hood movie is cooking up over at Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, as Deadline reports that Appian Way has snagged Robin Hood: Origins. The script comes from Joby Harold, who recently penned upcoming Guy Ritchie reboot King Arthur: Knights Of The Roundtable. According to the outlet, this latest in a long line of Hood movies will present “a gritty version of the rogue do-gooder.” Gritty or not, Origins faces its fair share of competitors. There are currently two other projects in development concerning the wealth redistribution agent, and with…
