    1."PJ Paparelli of American Theater Company Dies at 40": The Chicago Tribune's Chris Jones honors the brilliant artistic director of the American Theater Company, who died yesterday while on vacation in Scotland.“Both Paparelli and his theater company — the two were inseparable — were at their creative peak. During Paparelli's seven-year tenure, ATC produced a slew of highly regarded world premieres, including that of Ayad Akhtar's ‘Disgraced’ which moved to Broadway and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama. In an interview with the Tribune just prior to Paparelli's death,…

    NBC’s “Red Nose Day” raised a lot of money on Thursday night — but not the network’s ratings. The three-hour charity comedy show received just a 0.8 rating — down 27 percent from last week’s primetime lineup — among adults 18-49, and averaged a modest 3.2 million total viewers. CBS actually topped Thursday with a lineup of five reruns. To be fair, Thursday night had the distinction of being the first night of the lighter summer season; coupled with the Memorial Weekend holiday, television wasn’t going to get a ton of eyeballs no matter…

    On May 19, 2015, in midtown Manhattan, Bill Murray burst through the stage doors behind David Letterman's studios during the taping of Letterman's second-to-last show, clad in goggles and a jumpsuit, every square inch of him smeared with chunks of the giant cake he'd popped out of, then ran down the street and asked the crowd to follow him. Then he stood on Broadway and sang "All we are saying/Is more Worldwide Pants," which is the name of Letterman's production company, and asked everybody in earshot to sing along. And he held out his hands, inviting people to take his hand, to touch Bill…

    IN THESE RECENT DAYS OF UNREST in our nation, I am so happy to see the board of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Foundation join together to award our highest award, the Lincoln Leadership Prize, to the courageous individuals known as The Little Rock Nine. On September 25th, 1957, nine schoolchildren faced jeering crowds and National Guard units as they entered Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, while accompanied by a federal troop escort, courtesy of the 101st Airborne Division. Their attendance at the school was a historic triumph of the civil rights…
  • The Unloved, Part 17: "The Moth Diaries"

    4 May 2015 | 7:53 am
    Scout Tafoya's video series "The Unloved" tackles the urgency of female filmmakers with the latest installment of his fantastic video series. One of the most underrated directors of either gender has to be Mary Harron, and he looks at one of her most divisive films, "The Moth Diaries." The film didn't get nearly the attention of Harron's "American Psycho," or even "The Notorious Betty Page" or "I Shot Andy Warhol," but Tafoya argues for another look.

    29 Apr 2015 | 7:13 am
    Thirty years have passed since the release of the 14th James Bond film “A View to a Kill”, and it remains uncontested as the worst entry in the series. It’s not that the picture is devoid of any interest. On the contrary, it represents a curiosity of sorts among the Bonds. “View” has one of the series’ great title songs (by Duran Duran), it was filmed in some of the best locales imaginable (Paris, San Francisco), it was the first featuring an Academy Award winner (Chirstopher Walken), and yet, it is also the one where someone thought it would be a good idea to spice up a…
  • Richard Corliss, 1944-2015: Everywhere at Once

    Matt Zoller Seitz
    25 Apr 2015 | 11:30 am
    Richard Corliss, who died last week at 71, was one of those people whose importance sneaks up on you. Both his work and his personality were unobtrusive, but both were unforgettable. A native of Philadelphia, Corliss was spurred to study film after he saw Ingmar Bergman's "The Seventh Seal" and realized that movies could do more than just kill time. In the 1960s and '70s, Corliss wrote for National Review, MacLean’s, and New Times. (The first outlet now seems odd, considering that the publication is sharply conservative and Corliss was a liberal throughout his adult life.) He was mainly…

    Guillaume Nicloux’s “Valley of Love” and its iconic French stars Isabelle Huppert and Gérard Depardieu cozied up for a press conference and screening on Friday in Cannes, the international film festival’s 10th day of competition. Though Huppert, TheWrap’s Cannes magazine cover star, and Depardieu are quintessential festival darlings, the film itself has disappointed critics and moviegoers dotting the Croisette (but worry not, Mr. Nicloux, they still hate “Sea of Trees” more). “Beside ‘Sea of Trees,’ it looks like a veritable…

  • Knock Knock Trailer: Keanu Reeves is Brought Down By a Threesome

    Christopher Campbell
    22 May 2015 | 9:11 am
    Since the beginning of storytelling, heroes have been tempted and even brought down by sexual desire. That’s why fantasy epics have their sirens and alien invasion flicks tend to have a secret weapon in the form of an alien disguised as a sexy human woman (see the trailer for Pixels for the latest). Eli Roth‘s Knock Knock is not fantasy or sci-fi, though given the kinds of movies Keanu Reeves is best associated with, it probably should be. Instead, it’s merely a spin on the home invasion thriller genre, with Reeves brought down by two sexy human women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana…
  • Well Now We Want Rick Baker to Design The Joker

    Scott Beggs
    22 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    To be clear, I don’t have a problem with the design for the Jared Leto incarnation of The Joker for Suicide Squad. He looks a lot like Sonny Crockett lost his mind in a Hot Topic, but it’s different, it’s very Ayeresque, and that’s important. Let’s reserve full judgement until we see how the style works with the tone of David Ayer’s movie and the character of Leto’s Joker. On the other hand, this Joker design from Rick Baker is disgustingly good. That’s not surprising, because it’s Rick Baker. With this, he’s channeled Scott Snyder…
  • Poltergeist (2015) Is a Mere Ghost of Its Former Self

    Rob Hunter
    22 May 2015 | 6:55 am
    20th Century Fox Remakes are frequently dismissed sight unseen because they show a lack of creativity and far too many have proven themselves to be outright stinkers, but there have been enough exceptions to the rule over the years to warrant giving each reboot a chance to stand on its own. While many are pure cash grabs the successes are often ones that wisely targeted lesser films from the past in the hopes of improving them for today’s audiences. Tobe Hooper’s 1982 haunted house classic Poltergeist is in no way a lesser film, and even today — and even with some dated…

    As one who absolutely cherishes his memory of witnessing the first Poltergeist in theaters, it was with great pause that we headed into the theaters to witness the remake from director Gil Kenan. But, you can imagine our surprise as the lights went dark and the screen lit up with the images of a family grappling with the presence of a Poltergeist in their home, that we actually found ourselves getting sucked into the terrifying tale anew. That speaks volumes about the idea first hatched by Steven Spielberg in the early 80s. Poltergeist is a family story. They come together to face the most…

Disney’s Tomorrowland stars George Clooney as Frank, a former boy genius who has grown disenfranchised with a world that seems to be descending into a global warming-heated chaos with dwindling resources and a political structure too set in its ways to allow any kind of change. We first meet Frank as a kid attending the 1964 World’s Fair. He’s made a jet pack that (almost) works and as he…

  • 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.
  • Pitfall

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

    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.

    This is just a a quick writeup of some of the films I enjoyed most at Sundance. More importantly, these are out of a very small pool of films I was able to see, because even with a badge, it’s really, really hard to see films at Sundance. To get a ticket for each of the film’s below required waking up at the crack of dawn to walk a mile in the snow to the box office to buy tickets only for that day. Plus you’ve got to wait in line for about an hour before showtime to get a good seat. Buy, watch, repeat. And in some cases like Meru, it took four early morning attempts. But in the…

    I’d say it’s been a hell of a week, but the week isn’t over yet. Last Thursday was the second and last screening of Dolphin Lover at Slamdance. Shortly after that we received an honorable mention for short documentary from the jury, which was awesome. Our lovely juror @JoshLeake announces the Sparky award for the Doc.

  • First Photos from Todd Phillips' New Movie 'Arms and the Dudes'

    Alex Billington
    22 May 2015 | 8:00 am
    Meet your new Arms Dealers, David and Efraim. After making three The Hangover movies, what is director Todd Phillips up to next? This is his next project, a movie called Arms and the Dudes, "based on a true story" of two young men who were contracted by the Pentagon to arm America's allies in Afghanistan. Miles Teller plays David, Jonah Hill plays Efraim, to friends who suddenly start bidding on military contracts, but then they end up in-over-their-heads with the Afghanistan deal. This sounds like it might be really good, especially coming from the comedic mind of Todd Phillips. SlashFilm…
  • Watch: New Trailer for Thriller 'Knock Knock' Starring Keanu Reeves

    Alex Billington
    22 May 2015 | 7:42 am
    "You've been a very bad boy, Evan!" Voltage Pictures has debuted a full-length trailer for Eli Roth's latest film Knock Knock, a wacky home invasion thriller starring Keanu Reeves. He plays the victim, though, and the invaders this time are two feisty, nasty girls - played by Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas. This first premiered at Sundance this January in the Midnight category, but didn't up with any crazy buzz (nor did we have the chance to see it there). The setup is fairly interesting, but it almost turns into Funny Games half way through and doesn't seem to go anywhere else. But I'll watch…
  • Brad Pitt Back for 'World War Z' Sequel Set to Arrive in June 2017

    22 May 2015 | 7:13 am
    Briefly: Paramount has confirmed and cleared contracts and deals for the next World War Z sequel, which is definitely moving forward. The studio has announced a release date of June 9th, 2017 two years from now for "World War Z 2" (though it will likely get a new title). Brad Pitt will be back to star again, and he'll be working with director J.A. Bayona for this sequel, which will be "starting with a clean slate" according to the screenwriter. The first movie, based on Max Brooks' beloved zombie book, showed zombies taking over the world in a global epidemic. Only Pitt was brave enough to…

    Well aren't these two looking adorable? Pathé and BBC Films have debuted a first look photo at the film Florence Foster Jenkins, the latest from director Stephen Frears following Philomena, Lay the Favorite and Tamara Drewe. In Florence Foster Jenkins, Meryl Streep plays the legendary New York heiress who became an opera singer. Hugh Grant plays her partner St Clair Bayfield. The two can be seen riding in the back of a car, heading home from (what seems like) a night at Carnegie Hall. No release date is set yet, and the film just barely started shooting, so this is a very early first look…

    "Don't you understand, Tink? You mean more to me than anything in this whole world!" More Tinkerbell? Yep. THR is reporting that Reese Witherspoon has been cast in Disney's live-action film Tink, which will be another movie about Tinker Bell, to star Witherspoon. She will also help produce the project with her partner Bruna Papandrea at their company Pacific Standard. Alas, any plot details are unknown other than that the film is inspired by the world of the classic novel. That novel being "Peter and Wendy" written by J.M.

The two women seduce Reeves, who protests, but only a little, and some time later they return to teach him a lesson in personal responsibility. Note that this Knock Knock trailer is not technically red-band, but it has enough heavily suggested sex and violence that you might want to hold off watching if…

    Masterpiece.That's the word being tossed around, and not lightly, to describe Apichatpong Weerasethakul's latest feature, Cemetery of Splendour (, Rak Ti Khon Kaen), which had its world premiere on Monday at the Cannes Film Festival, and was warmly received with a 10-minute standing ovation.Following the film's screening in the Un Certain Regard competition, pundits at Cannes are calling Cemetery of Splendour one of the best films in the fest, and some wonder why it wasn't included in the main Palme d'Or competition, especially since Apichatpong is a past Palme d'Or and Jury Prize…

    Might as well admit it: I'm bored by Thai films.Apart from indie art-house efforts off the festival circuit, short films, documentaries, and the increasingly rare Thai action movie, Thai cinema offers fewer and fewer of the types of compelling genre films that got me interested in Thai films in the first place. Instead, it's been one sentimental romantic melodrama after another, and there's only so much of that I can stomach.Thankfully, there are still a few directors around who will take risks, and director MR Chalermchatri "Adam" Yukol aims to shake things up with zombies in Phi Ha Ayodhaya…

    Fresh from the success of his debut feature, Snowtown, the world was - in many ways - director Justin Kurzel's oyster. The dark true crime drama left the Australian helmer poised to go in any one of several directions. The offers were rolling in from Hollywood, stars were lining up, and the expectations were that he could - if he wanted to - set himself down a path to being the next Martin Scorsese or the like.And what did Kurzel choose to do instead? A new film adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth with Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in the leads.And with the film now in…

  • Review: POLTERGEIST, A Remake That Resembles The Original A Little Too Closely

    21 May 2015 | 9:50 pm
    "They're here!" The original Poltergeist looms large in modern popular culture, the 1982 film having grown in stature over the years to the point where it's considered a classic of the haunted house genre. Indeed, the original is a very good thriller that pushed the ratings boundary of the time and added a welcome layer to the reputation of Steven Spielberg, credited as a writer and producer (though long rumored to have lent a heavy hand to director Tobe Hooper). Released in the same year as E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, the film presented the flip side of suburban life, focusing on the…

    Sometimes The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is hilarious, and sometimes it’s just weirdly awesome. While not especially funny, getting Hugh Jackman, Susan Sarandon, and Nick Offerman to sit down for a quick game of Password is beyond awesome. There’s little to explain, except that what really pushes this over the edge is Jimmy’s own inability to find that perfect clue. The frustration shoots out of him like he’s sitting on a geyser. The real question here is, why doesn’t someone bring this show back? Update it a bit, maybe, but who wouldn’t love to see…

The show proudly announces that it is by the creators of GLEE and American Horror Story (and is apparently reusing sets of the latter), but doesn’t just come out and say who that is, which is decidedly odd marketing. If those two shows do any work convincing you to watch, you know who Ryan Murphy is. At any rate, you might expect that the show might as well be AHS: Sorority, but you’d be slightly…

    People often talk about over-hyped and under-hyped films, and with good reason, but when a film strikes you as getting exactly the right amount of hype, it’s rare indeed. This is exactly where Exodus: Gods and Kings seems to fall. It’s a film that seems like it should have gotten more attention, especially considering the cast, and the fact that it was directed by Ridley Scott. It turns out that the film, while actually quite good, delivers to precisely the level of interest the world seems to have dictated is its due. A thematically unique spin on this, or any other, biblical…

Ethan (Duplass) and Sophie (Moss) are having marriage troubles, and their therapist (Ted Danson) thinks they should get some time away from life’s stresses, and focus on each other.

One of several shows with huge, and hugely loyal, fanbases to get cut this year, The Mindy Project is not only a very different style of show, Mindy Kaling is a different style of comic. The result is that while perhaps not for everyone, the show quickly gained a solid support base of superfans. Not only has Hulu picked up the show, but a 26-episode order is a pretty serious…

    Even heady proclamations like the ‘Greatest Film Ever Made’ cannot overstate how powerful this picture is. The story of a mercurial newspaper magnate who began his career as an idealistic entrepreneur raised with a silver spoon in his mouth who, over the course of his life, breaks down to an egomaniacal tyrant is like an insatiable addiction. Welles’ tale of American big business and the cult of personality which arises from unabated success has become as fundamental to cinema as The Odyssey is to classical literature.Citizen Kane (1941) dir.

    Gone With the Wind is that rare case where its desire for ‘grandeur’ trickles down successfully through every aspect of production. From Selznick’s madness for control, the obscene four-hour running time, Max Steiner's memorable score, the film’s massive production elements, even down to Scarlett O’Hara’s character grand character arc, the film continually leaps over the audiences’ high expectations, which with much room to spare.

    After directing “Deliver Us From Evil,” her Oscar-nominated 2006 documentary chronicling sex-abuse cases in the Roman Catholic Church, Amy Berg set her sights on directing a narrative feature. “Since ‘Deliver Us From Evil,’ I have been getting a lot of scripts and a lot of meetings with people,” the 44-year-old Berg said at the quaint Venice (Los Angeles County) home she shares with her dogs.

    By Mick LaSalle
    13 May 2015 | 8:32 pm
    [...] it’s a good film, worth seeing by more than Truffaut completists, and this Criterion release is the best opportunity for audiences to see it in years. (Truffaut had affairs with almost all of his leading ladies and also frequented prostitutes during his marriage, not out of sexual frustration, but because he liked prostitutes.) The film stars Jean Desailly as a popular French intellectual in his early 40s, married with children, who has an affair with an airline hostess, played by Francoise Dorleac. Desailly is perfectly cast, but it’s inevitable that 51 years later all eyes will be…
  • Jack Black good in 'D Train,’ a disturbing comedy

    By Mick LaSalle
    7 May 2015 | 1:54 pm
    “The D Train” is a comedy that stirs almost nothing but unpleasant and uncomfortable feelings. To watch “The D Train” is to imagine that co-writer-directors Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul must enjoy standing at the back of the auditorium watching their movie, waiting for the audience to catch on that “The D Train” isn’t the usual buddy comedy. [...] one might easily wonder why Jack Black chose to make what, at first, seems like a routine little comedy. [...] Dan is on a par with the role Black played in Richard Linklater’s “Bernie.” Marsden, with his winning smile and cold…

    [...] for the fact that there’s nothing disagreeable about looking at Sofia Vergara — that the sight of her really doesn’t get old over the course of 87 minutes — “Hot Pursuit” would be intolerable. The coming-attractions trailer, which was fun and seemed promising, contained every laugh. Witherspoon is a rookie cop, and Vergara is a drug dealer’s widow, who has to be escorted to a court appearance, despite all the bad guys who want to kill her. If you can say the premise in a single sentence, and it sounds appealing, that’s what they call “high concept.” [...] the problem…

    By John Stanley
    6 May 2015 | 9:43 pm
    I Am Steve McQueen Steve McQueen fans, be warned: This no-holds-barred documentary shows that he wasn’t always pleasant to be around. He may have been the “King of Cool” when he was Hollywood’s highest-paid star, but his oft-quoted line, “I live for myself and I answer to nobody,” was accurate. He seldom showed respect for authority (including the producers and directors he worked with), he worked extra-hard to steal scenes from fellow actors, and married three times and had many girlfriends on the side. The deeper this documentary gets, the darker the shadow McQueen throws.

  • Believing victims

    Caitie-Jane Cook
    22 May 2015 | 9:30 am
    Hampshire Constabulary are the latest in a long line of police forces obliged to apologise to a victim of crime for failing to investigate an allegation properly. In this case, a young woman accused a man of rape. She was not believed; forensic examination of clothing was delayed; in the meanwhile, the complainant was threatened with arrest for ‘perverting the course of justice’ and she attempted suicide. Eventually, following belated forensic analysis, the man was arrested and has since then been convicted. This is no isolated example. Inept police investigations that failed to recognise…
  • The Irish referendum on same-sex marriage

    Alice Leigh
    22 May 2015 | 5:30 am
    Today the people of Ireland will vote in a Referendum to decide whether to introduce same sex marriage. If ‘Yes‘ wins, the following new wording will be added to the Constitution: ‘Marriage may be contracted in accordance with law by two persons without distinction as to their sex’. This may happen despite Ireland having a Constitution grounded on Catholic values. Indeed, abortion in Ireland is still constitutionally prohibited. Same sex sexual activity was only decriminalized in 1993, and divorce has only been available since 1995. Yet, LGBT rights have progressed very…

    Alistair Shand
    22 May 2015 | 3:30 am
    Parents of a child diagnosed with a serious illness are immediately required to make decisions about their child’s medical treatment which, in order to save life, may cause pain, unpleasant side-effects and risk damaging their child’s future quality of life. The actions, last summer, of the parents of five year old Ashya King offer just one example of the lengths to which parents will go to secure the best possible treatment for their child; researching alternative treatments, securing second opinions, finding a treatment centre offering innovative or experimental treatment, travelling…
  • Parkinson’s disease: the flip side of the coin

    Joe Hitchcock
    22 May 2015 | 2:30 am
    The human brain might be perceived as an organ with two main strategic tasks: goal-directed motor behavior, and mental functioning in order to work out that goal. These two main functions have two prototypical diseases: Alzheimer disease, in case of mental function, and Parkinson’s disease, with motor function. Following its inception as an entity, Parkinson’s disease (PD) was long perceived to be a purely motor disorder with unimpaired mental functions. This was partly influenced by its initial description by James Parkinson, who wrote that the intellect and senses remain intact.
  • Climate consciousness in daily legal practice

    Kathleen Sargeant
    22 May 2015 | 1:30 am
    Thinking about climate change generates helplessness in us. Our persistent role creating this global catastrophe seems so inevitable as to be predetermined; our will to contain it, or even reach agreement to contain it, feeble. Global negotiations seem far removed from our everyday lives and, as lawyers and scholars, remote from the daily practice of our discipline. But understanding climate change as a multiscalar problem requiring a response on all levels reminds us that climate change is as much a small-scale, local, and immediate issue, as it is a global problem of the past and future.

    Observations on film art

    13 May 2015 | 2:05 pm
    Paolo Cherchi Usai introducing a session of The Nitrate Picture Show. DB here: Our entries have been laggardly lately because of various factors: a trip to a family wedding in DC, work on a new edition of Film Art, a stubborn cold, and not least, a bustling trip to Rochester’s George Eastman House for The Nitrate Picture Show. This last event is the topic for today, and hoo boy was it something.   Handle with care, respect, and admiration Light Is Calling (2004). For the first fifty years or so of cinema, commercial feature films were shot and shown on nitrate-based film stock.
  • Richard Corliss: Fulltime Critic

    bordwellblog
    29 Apr 2015 | 1:04 pm
    Mary and Richard Corliss, Ebertfest 2008. DB here: Parker Tyler called James Agee America’s biggest movie fan, implying that he was a lesser critic for loving movies. But Agee, who was often cast into despair by the films he met week by week, was actually in love with Cinema. From each release he sought glimpses of what he imagined movies could be, and so seldom were. Tyler’s phrase might better apply to Richard Corliss, but in a deeply complimentary sense. Like his friend and occasional jousting partner Roger Ebert, Richard didn’t judge a film by whether it measured up to some ideal…

    DB here: Regular visitors will know of my interest in David Koepp, screenwriter (Jurassic Park, War of the Worlds) and director (Ghost Town, Premium Rush). In 2013 I wrote an entry based on a long interview he kindly gave me. Back in March of this year, David visited UW—Madison. It’s not strictly his alma mater; he left us to finish up at UCLA. Still, he retains ties to Wisconsin and recalls that while he was here he was inspired by our vast film society scene and some courses in the film and theatre departments. Across 2 ½ days he shared his experiences in a variety of settings,…

    Carl Barks, Ghost of the Grotto (1947). DB here: We never need an excuse to write about comic strips or comic books. We’re fans and, just as important, we think of them as having important connections to film. We’re particularly fond of classic funny-animal comics, from Krazy Kat (the greatest) onward. So I got a double dose of pleasure reading Mike Barrier’s Funnybooks: The Improbable Glories of the Best American Comic Books. It taught me a lot about the history of some favorites, and it set me thinking about some overlaps and divergences between film and graphic art.   No…

    Advertisement for Woman of the Year. From Hollywood Reporter (23 April 1942), 5. During the 1940s, MGM promoted some of its top pictures with unique illustrations. The artist would make cutout caricatures of the stars, dress them in fabrics, and then prepare little shallow-relief scenes, with props made of wood, carpets, and other stuff. Above, the microphones seem made of metal and plastic, and Tracy’s coat has real buttons attached. Below, the men’s slippers are three-dimensional, as is the toy goldfish and, I suppose, the diving board. The little tableau would then be…

Frizzy Hair was none too impressed either and after giving the old boy a right royal rollicking, they both calmed down and discussed future acquisitions. Six cats in one house is a lot you know, so the frizz was curious about what other pets the beard had in mind. His suggestion? Llamas and lots of them. Beard Face’s preference was for pink llamas and ones that were coloured like an array of…

    Netflix’s upcoming Bill Murray Christmas special sounds like a good time, even though this trailer is a total bummer. Directed by Sofia Coppola, A Very Murray Christmas will feature appearances from celebrities including Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, George Clooney, Maya Rudolph, Miley Cyrus and others, as well as Murray “as he worries no one will show up to his TV show due to a terrible snow storm in New York City. Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at the Carlyle hotel to help him; dancing and singing in holiday spirit” ...

    The Malaysian Ministry of Information has released some truly frightening images that show how dire the situation facing many migrants really is. Officials from in Myanmar recently rescued more than 200 people packed in an 80-foot boat in the Andaman Sea. Many of the group—which included some children—are Rohingya Muslims who are fleeing religious persecution in the country. A UNHCR spokesperson said in a statement, We hope that this recent positive development will be followed by other disembarkations in Myanmar and across the region. This needs to happen before the coming monsoon rains.

    There's nothing wrong with loving to travel, but how do we know when it's time to commit to a place? While chatting with a friend recently, we started talking about our lifelong dreams, desires and goals. "The concept of the 'American Dream' is changing," she said. "Millennials don't want just to settle down with a nice house and a steady job. They want to travel the world and continue to explore their ever-expanding view of it."

  • Review: Tomorrowland

    Dave Taylor
    21 May 2015 | 11:01 pm
    My daughter and I watch a lot of old movies. The previous era of cinema appeals to us is because of the underlying optimism and the comfort in knowing that the bad guy will get their comeuppance and the good guys will overcome, the proverbial happy ending. Life isn’t quite so graceful, unfortunately, but part of the draw is that older films offer a happier, more optimistic world. By contrast, modern cinema seems to often lack a moral compass and while this ambiguity can sometimes lead to great movies like The Usual Suspects, other times it produces films that celebrate the bad guy.

    If you’ve seen the extraordinary sci-fi / horror thriller Alien then you’ve encountered the world of surrealist artist H. R. Giger. In fact, he was part of the team that won an Academy Award for Best Achievement in Visual Effects for their work on the film. Sadly, Giger passed away a year ago, leaving a massive legacy of weird, twisted, surreal paintings, lithographs and sculpture both at his bizarre house in Zurich, Switzerland and at museums and galleries throughout the world. But who was Hans Rudolf Giger and why was his entire artistic career focused on his dark, erotic…
  • Review: The Connection

    New York City in the early 1970’s was awash in heroin. It was not only the recreational drug of choice, it was the dealer’s and mobsters import of choice too, and almost all of it came from Turkey by way of France. The purification process and smuggling of the heroin, hundreds of kilos at a time, all came out of the port city of Marseille, and the NYPD battle against this criminal nightmare was memorialized in the terrific, Academy-Award winning The French Connection. Picking up the story four years after the 1971 movie, the newly released The Connection (French title Le French)…

    Horror films explore not just the dark recesses of our collective psyche, but also wrestle with contemporary mores and values. Lots of people avoid them because of the gore, the jump frights or the sheer weirdness of the worst entries in the genre, but there are other horror films that offer a remarkably different perspective when watched 10, 20 or more years later. When I flipped on the 1974 shlock horror film It’s Alive, about a mutant baby who goes on a murderous rampage, famously including the birth room at the hospital, I didn’t have very high expectations, but as it…

    Based on what’s considered one of the best novels of its time, director Thomas Vinterberg’s Far from the Madding Crowd follows orphaned heroine Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan) throughout the formative years of her young life, the men she attracts and her relationship with each of them. There are three men who are attracted to the beautiful, headstrong and tempestuous young Bathsheba: the sturdy, plodding Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer who is captivated by her plucky spirit, Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant in the military and…

    21 May 2015 | 9:21 am
    Some movies only take a single sentence to pitch and you instantly understand exactly what you're going to get. So here's the simple pitch for a new horror comedy: What if the cooties was an actual virus that turned kids into zombies and a bunch of elementary school teachers had to fight them off? That's a pretty great idea all on its own, but when you throw in Elijah Wood, Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Nasim Pedrad, Jack McBrayer and Leigh Whannell, Cooties becomes something...Read MoreRead Comments

    My husband and I recently watched the film, “Searching for Bobby Fischer”, and I’ll tell you right now, I never knew chess could be so lively (kudos to all those who can play by the way). The chess tournaments in the film are fast paced, if not downright grueling, and the story takes us through young Josh Waitzkin’s advancement to the Chess National Championship where that environment is witnessed. Young Josh’s story begins with his hobby of baseball overlooking much of anything else. Within the first few scenes, however, the ‘search’ for the next Bobby Fischer has already…

    Russell Crowe has directed a few short films, but this is his first big directing gig. It certainly comes through on screen. The story follows a father who is on the search for his sons after World War One, and intends to bring them home to rest. He begins a long, tumultuous journey into the heart of Turkey with a hope that in the end he can find some peace. The peace he finds can symbolically be called water or what we all see as life. Hence, the title: “The Water Diviner”. He has no divining rod, like perhaps Moses, but he has a way to discern where water or life exists even under great…

  • ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ gives a sense of Déjà Vu

    John
    25 Apr 2015 | 8:48 am
    Joss Whedon fills up an intricate checklist for superhero movies. The Avengers get down on their feet running in this film. They are faced with some Russian fringe elements. They are at war with America. The Americans with the help of the Avengers are just trying to contain things. There is a lack of any damage control like the previous Avengers. Things are hurled and destroyed in various parts of the screen (This effect will be experienced in IMAX 3D screens). The film pushes us to Phase 3 with relative ease and a sense of déjà vu. Joss makes a film that is in between the territory of the…

It's a beguiling notion, especially for a film that's otherwise content to transmit it's themes via sledgehammer.Given the ponderous shroud of secrecy draped over the film by the house of mouse, I went in with only one solid expectation: Fun.

    Review by Milan PaurichGOOD KILL is a bit like an Oliver Stone movie on Quaaludes. Certainly the topical subject—drone warfare in the post-digital age—is uber-Stone-y, but the execution is dreamy and purposefully disorienting. It’s as though the DOORS-era Stone had directed WORLD TRADE CENTER. Writer-director Andrew Niccol’s background in thinking man’s sci-fi (GATTACA, S1M0NE, IN TIME, and THE TRUMAN SHOW, which he scripted for Peter Weir) informs his new film both stylistically and intellectually. Yet the Niccol work it most eloquently bookends—it almost serves as a companion…

    The good often travels along with the bad. The good in this case: Yours truly has made the move to the lovely city of Philadelphia, a process that led to the extended delay of this episode. The bad: the film we’re discussing, of course. The SF-comedy Invasion of the Star Creatures tries to mimic the slapped-together-fast-n-cheap success of Little Shop of Horrors — with Horrors star Jonathan Haze stepping into the role of screenwriter — but pretty much blows everything it attempts, most prominently any attempt at humor (unless you think grievously stereotyped Native…

The month’s largely a dumping ground, a catch-all for films that, for one reason or another, have been found wanting. But occasionally a film lands in the month that, from all on-screen evidence, should have received better treatment. Hence, the mystery.

And there’s a lot to be said for loyalty when it comes to adapting a film from another source, be it a novel, a play, or a musical. But it can be impediment as well, especially when loyalty to the original material gets in the way of letting a filmmaker…

There’s a bit of OCD that goes along with genre film fandom — once you’ve signed on to a franchise, you’re kind-of obligated to follow it wherever it will take you, for good or ill. Thus the sullen air hanging over screenings of REVENGE OF THE SITH or any of the Wolverine spin-offs — it really does sap the energy out of an auditorium when attendance is more dutiful than enthusiastic.

    How nice it's been to anticipate another set of tales from modern Portugal in the form of Miguel Gomes's Arabian Nights! The film's three parts have been shown every other day here in Cannes, and I've finally caught the last and I must say I already miss the idea that Gomes and his Scheherazade will unspool even more for me two days hence.

    I left Marie-Pierre the task of teasing out the nuances of Chinese director Jia Zhangke's film in competition, Mountains May Depart, which thankfully leaves me some space to talk about it without assuredness but with avid curiosity. Because, you see, it is a tremendously odd film, as dramatic a change from his last film as that one, A Touch of Sin, was from what came before it. I don't think of Jia as a filmmaker who constantly surprises, yet looking back on his last features, I realize he keeps doing just that: I Wish I Knew, A Touch of Sin—all come from a new, acute angle than the…

    Thanks to Jia Zhangke's new film, we will probably get an updated statement, for today, about the tricky matter that Jacques Rivette once closed while discussing Mizoguchi's cinema. The question of understanding (or not) a film's language and its cultural context."What is beyond doubt is that Mizoguchi's art is based on the play of personal genius within the context of a dramatic tradition. But will wanting to approach it in terms of the national culture and to find it above all such great universal values make us any the wiser? That men are men wherever they may be is something we might have…

What could be more fitting than eagerly awaiting more stories from this project inspired by Scheherazade's 1001 tales? Indeed, I wonder if film is actually the best format for Gomes's ambitious project, which I could easily see sprawling into television or web episodes, an all consuming process of ingesting a never ending series of idiosyncratic, telling events of Portugal's contemporary history.

Kurosawa returns to the Cannes and the Un Certain Regard section for the first time since 2008's Tokyo Sonata, a film that helped bridge a connection to a normal art house crowd for this director too often incorrectly pegged either as some kind of arty J-Horror filmmaker or, even worse, someone who was…

I also included a couple of new promo banners featuring these characters. Fantastic Four is set to be released on August 7th.

  • Rad VOLTRON Fan Art 'The Defender' Created by Ian Glaubinger

    22 May 2015 | 7:58 am
    I guess I'm feeling nostalgic today. Earlier I posted a He-Man and the Masters of the Universe fan poster. Now I have another '80s cartoon art piece to share with you featuring Voltron. The illustration is called "The Defender," and it was created by Ian Glaubinger. It presents Voltron in a way that I've never really seen before. It's done a playful and fun style, that I think fans of the the franchise will appreciate. I came across the art over on /Film, and they did an interview with the artist. While talking about his style he explains how it…

    Time travel to 2015 with Predestination Happy new year, gentle listeners. Jerry & Mark, your hosts of The Horror Movie Show, hope 2015 is starting out well for you. Unlike the debacle that was 1968. Whew, what a stinker that was. The guys have a plethora of wild & crazy movies this episode, beginning with the excellent Predestination. Sarah Snook & Ethan Hawke are mesmerizing as time travellers in a complex web of unreality, then & now. Without giving anything away, this is the best time-travel movie since 12 Monkeys. Another sciency-fictional flick comes next: Automata.

  • Film Review – Tomorrowland

    Edward Davidson
    22 May 2015 | 12:01 am
    This film is difficult to talk about. Part of the charm and fun of the new Disney film Tomorrowland is the mystery surrounding it. The Disney marketing machine has done an admirable job of whetting the public’s appetite for this story without revealing much at all. And as the plot itself unfolds a big part of the charm of it concerns the slow reveal of it’s central mystery. There is a lot of fun to be had here for kids of a certain age. The youngest in the crowd might get antsy with the slow reveal of what’s going on. But for a tween crowd and especially kids who like to…
  • An Appreciation – Do the Right Thing

    Allen Almachar
    21 May 2015 | 10:03 am
    In preparation to write on Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing (1989), I ran across an interview where Lee described being asked why he went with an ambiguous ending rather than providing straight answers to the problem of racism. Lee, understandably, responded with confusion. If there was an answer for racism, he would have given it. But because prejudice in society is so historically ingrained, finding it is not so easy. The beauty of Lee’s film is that it is bold enough to ask those questions and encourage dialogue. It’s a provocative work, emboldened not by anger but by desperation and…
  • Film Review – Pitch Perfect 2

    Allen Almachar
    15 May 2015 | 6:31 am
    The thing about sequels to surprise hits is seeing if it will capture the same kind of magic as before. Pitch Perfect (2012) came out of nowhere, bringing a lot of music, laughs, and a tightly knit story to make a fun movie going experience. Three years later comes Pitch Perfect 2 (2015). The DNA of the first film is still there, but the lightning in the bottle has faded. This is a looser story, with a narrative that meanders around in tangents and unnecessary side plots. The singing is on point, as is expected, but it never reaches the highs we were hoping it would. Don’t get me wrong,…
  • SXSW Film Review – Love & Mercy

    Sarah Ksiazek
    15 May 2015 | 6:29 am
    Love & Mercy tells the story of Brian Wilson, a member of The Beach Boys and the creative genius behind their hits. The film jumps from one point in Brian Wilson’s life in the 1960s (played by Paul Dano) to Wilson in the 1980s (played by John Cusack) and goes back and forth through the film. While The Beach Boys as a band are there in the film, this is a film focused on Brian Wilson’s major influence on the sound and construction of The Beach Boys music and his problems with mental instability. Not being alive in the 1960s, the history of The Beach Boys and the evolution of their…

    15 May 2015 | 6:13 am
    Handmade with Love In France: I don’t imagine most people know much about haute couture anymore other than the names of a few brands such as Chanel, Dior, and Hermes. Haute couture clothing is astronomically expensive because it’s all completely made by hand. (If it’s not, it ain’t couture no matter what the label says.) Behind each design house exists an army of craftspeople aside from the seamstresses. Feathers must be died and sewn, and things like embroidery, pleats, and beading must be done manually before the items are stitched together. Directed by Julie Georgia Bernard, Hand…

  • Arthur Hohl – Broadway to Hollywood, Double-Dealers All the Way

    Cliff Aliperti
    21 May 2015 | 3:20 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal Ephemera Above: Arthur Hohl in Jimmy the Gent (1934). Arthur Hohl was another nasty piece of work on screen, though he seems to have lived a relatively quiet and stable life that was largely consumed by his work. Hohl’s gaunt appearance aided him in playing villainous parts in movies throughout the 1930s and ‘40s. While he almost always wielded a general nastiness, Hohl was often the cowardly double-dealing type of villain, ultimately caught or called out for his actions and looking every bit as guilty as he always was. Hey,…

    Cliff Aliperti
    17 May 2015 | 3:07 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraAbove: Ralf Harolde in Safe in Hell. When I think of pre-Code sleaze, Ralf Harolde’s is the first face I imagine. I love it when he has something more than a bit, such as his Piet Van Saal in William A. Wellman’s Safe in Hell (1931). Piet’s the louse that Gilda (Dorothy Mackaill) cracks with a bottle and leaves for dead as the hotel burns. He’s who sets her on the run. Harolde is so detestable in the part that we wind up getting a kick out of seeing him die all over again. Above: Harolde and Dorothy Mackaill in…

I am rained out of the first screening of Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan, which I will see tomorrow. 11:01 a.m. Paolo Sorrentino movies fracture early and often, but unlike the jigsaw-pile Youth (Grade: C-), they’re usually unified by a compellingly eccentric lead performance, be it Toni Servillo in Il Divo and The Great Beauty, or Sean Penn in This Must Be The Place.

But before its June 10, 2016 release, the less creatively titled Now You See Me: The Second Act will have yet another act to follow it. Variety reports that Lionsgate has begun developing a third installment in the series more than a year before the second one is even due to be released.

    22 May 2015 | 7:34 am
    The 2015 edition of Poltergeist would be a decent horror movie if it didn’t already exist. There’s the 1982 edition, for starters, a masterful collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper that sends a suburban family through the haunted-house wringer. But the new Poltergeist also recalls James Wan’s Insidious and any number of other recent cinematic hauntings, with the usual little kids talking to unseen entities, electronics going haywire, creepy-looking toys, paranormal investigators acting slightly wacky, and cheap but effective jump scares.That’s not to say that this…

Even though the freshman program completely complies with the new rule that any 30-minute show must contend as a comedy series, the actual program offers an equal mix of comedy and drama (maybe more of the latter). The second-year Netflix series "Orange is the New Black" was forced to change sides from comedy to drama because it is a one-hour show.

With Kristen Wiig playing Alice Klieg, a woman suffering from this mental disorder, Welcome to Me has received praise from critics and viewers alike for the comedy adaption. Kristen Wiig does a fine job of a woman on psychiatric meds who ends up winning a grand lottery. Written by Eliot Laurence, the movie does not take much time to start explaining itself.

Michael Logan (Peter Ferdinando) is a corrupt cop who leads a drug trafficking team in London. Logan is basically your anti-hero leading a corrupt squad of drug trafficking police.

The first adaptation of the 1874 novel was brought to the screen in 1915 as a silent movie, with the second version being released in 1967. Thomas Hardy’s novel brought the character of Bathsheba to life, and despite the writer being accused of misogyny, the female character is independent and resourceful in contrast to the women of that era.

    20 May 2015 | 5:08 pm
    This week we review the classic British crime film Get Carter released in 1971. A view into the gritty proletariat British underworld, this groundbreaking film dispenses with the flash of previous British efforts, likening itself more to American detective stories. Mark feels its influences may have come full circle however, with directors like Guy Ritchie emulating Get Carter but unfortunately falling into a stylized glammy traps. A classic anti-hero feast, Michael Caine is the definition of the "smooth criminal."Download: 160 Get Carter

A lukewarm response from both Matt and Mark, Matt tries to dissect why 30 minute sketch comedy shows tend to limp into mediocre 90 minute films. It could be that while Amy Sedaris's Jerri Blank is funny for a 10 minute block, stretching this unlikable character to film length becomes challenging.

Divorced of U.S. war film tropes, Das Boot offers up a depiction of war that combines the psychological with action in a way that forces the watcher to feel the claustrophobia and terror of war at sea. Despite its subject matter, Das Boot is also an exposition on the mechanical wonders of undersea warfare, strangely making it one of Matt's adolescent cult hits.Download: 156 Das Boot

    The Rise of the Antichrist is a new comic series from Betvin Géant and Kay, a ten-issue event and the first series for Géant in the medium. At the core of this first issue is a pretty self-explanatory introduction to the title, a seemingly literal rise of the Antichrist embodied by a mentally insane individual believing himself to hear the word of God. In that way, Géant and Kay set up a particularly blasphemous event, a twisting of faith as the main character begins to lose himself in religious fervor and then a possession by the devil. Géant begins the series with a flashback sequence,…

    Mark of the Devil is Michael Armstrong’s attempt at a witchfinder movie after the success of films like Witchfinder General in the late ’60s; interestingly enough, he succeeds in crafting a coherent and mostly impressive movie despite the intervention of production with the addition of uncredited director Adrian Hoven. Mark of the Devil is brutal and grim, not a starry-eyed depiction of witch-hunting but an unfiltered and – let’s face it – somewhat exploitative look at the medieval torture devices and masochism of people who claimed to be operating under the…
  • The Black Hood #3 | Comic Review

    Ryne Barber
    18 May 2015 | 9:19 am
    In Duane Swierczynski’s last issue of The Black Hood, Greg Hettinger suddenly went from being a good, heroic cop to a drug-popping vigilante mostly focused on getting his next high. It was a low point for Hettinger, and one that eventually got him arrested; the big guys in town, the political muckety-mucks with drug dealers on speed dial, were concerned with Hettinger’s interference, and they set him up for a fall to get him out of the way. It didn’t do much to Hettinger’s career – he’s still pushing papers on the force – but it did give him extra…

    17 May 2015 | 7:52 am
    You may know From a Whisper to a Scream as The Offspring, the ill-conceived alternate title for this Vincent Price-helmed anthology film of four shorts. Either way, the content is still the same – Price, sort of roped into appearing in the film, introduces each of the tales to an interested reporter by documenting that the town of a recent serial killer (Oldfield, Tennessee) is actually home to a lot of terrible people. Director Jeff Burr and the multiple screenwriters on this film – including C. Courtney Joyner and Darin Scott – combine period pieces with contemporary…

  • The Palm Beach Story (1942, Preston Sturges)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    22 May 2015 | 6:00 am
    The Palm Beach Story is a narrative. Director Sturges opens with a rapidly cut prologue showing stars Claudette Colbert and Joel McCrea getting married, where he inserts clues for what will eventually be the film’s utterly pointless deus ex machina. Sure, Palm Beach runs less than ninety minutes so it’s possible the viewer be sitting around focusing on the prologue’s unanswered questions, but unlikely. Sturges is betting a lot on no one paying too much attention. The film’s first act has Colbert paying off she and McCrea’s debt, so she then leaves him.

He opens with her (doing some hippy thing where she “blesses” her food), then moves the story to her stalker, played by Olaf Lubaszenko. Now, what eventually happens is Janet Leigh comes on to Norman Bates and he tries to kill himself and she realizes her wanton slutty modern woman ways have taken away her chance for godly happiness.

    Until the halfway point or so, A Day at the Races moves quite well. Sure, it gets off to a slow start–introducing Chico as sidekick to Maureen O’Sullivan and setting up her problems (her sanitarium is going out of business), which isn’t funny stuff. I think Allan Jones even shows up as her nightclub singing beau before the other Marx Brothers make an appearance. But once they do, Races gets in gear. There are a series of excellent sequences, all utilizing the Marx Brothers. Whether it’s Harpo doing physical comedy, Groucho and Chico doing a banter bit–with Harpo…

    This week tragedy struck again in the Mediterranean with a ferry capsizing and taking with it the lives of more than 800 refugees. Now labelled 'migrants', Europe is grappling with how to deal with the issue - economically and ethically. In Refugees: Who Needs Them - we gain insight about their journey and plight.

  • Pitch Perfect 2 Review

    18 May 2015 | 2:56 pm
    The fairly simple premise of the first film – too-cool-for-school Becca (Anna Kendrick) enlivens a stuffy college a capella group – has been replaced by a messier tangle of subplots and fan service. The main thread of the narrative involves Becca and her Barden Bellas trying to win the a capella world championships after a spectacular wardrobe malfunction in front of President Obama sees them banned from the national competition. Their main competition is a slick German group called Das Sound Machine, led by Kommissar (Birgitte Hjort Sorenson). The Germans are so perfect Becca can't even…
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

    25 Apr 2015 | 2:38 pm
    But amidst all of the five-year plans and release schedules, the multi-verses and brand synergy, the teaser trailers and TV spots, there are actually films, and most of them are very good. The most recent example is Avengers: Age of Ultron, the eleventh film in the series that began with Iron Man back in 2008 and the massive culmination of Marvel's 'phase 2'. To call it a sequel to 2012's box office behemoth The Avengers wouldn't be accurate: if you haven't seen Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, this one won't make much sense. In fact, even if you have,…
  • The Salvation Review

    24 Apr 2015 | 9:28 am
    The film stars Mads Mikkelsen, the Danish star of TV's Hannibal who, with his stony face and steely gaze, looks every bit the Western hero. He plays Jon, a Danish settler in the Wild West sometime in the 1870's. He and his brother Peter (In A Better World's Mikael Persbrandt) fall foul of local outlaw Delarue (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and soon they are embroiled in a bloody feud with Delarue's men, while the cowardly locals are so afraid of Delarue that they're happy to sell out Jon and Peter at a moment's notice. The Salvation is an atmospheric and textured film, from its sun-scorched visuals…
  • Child 44 Review

    23 Apr 2015 | 2:49 pm
    Hardy is always magnetic on screen and even saddled with an iffy Russian accent, he gives a compelling enough performance as Leo Demidov, a national war hero turned MGB agent at the centre of the film's two stories, both of which could've made a better film on their own. Firstly, there's the story of Leo's wife Raisa (Rapace), who has been wrongfully identified as a spy by Leo's agency buddies, in particular Joel Kinnaman's blandly sinister Vasili who has a serious grudge against the couple. Leo is given the chance to denounce his wife by his senior officer (Vincent Cassell) but he remains…
  • Fast & Furious 7 Review

    13 Apr 2015 | 12:22 pm
    Walker has been a central part of the series from the beginning. His undercover cop Brian O'Connor was the hero and since then, he's been absent from only one film: Tokyo Drift, a film that looked set to usher in a straight-to-DVD future for the series. The series and cast has grown around Walker but it is Brian's relationship with Mia (Jordana Brewster) and his bromance with her brother Dom (Vin Diesel) that provides the film with a dose of real heart and the family values that the series pushes at every opportunity. Fast & Furious 7 first finds Brian in a familiar situation: behind the…

    Poltergeist by Hope Madden Thirty three years ago, Steven Spielberg unleashed two tales of supernatural contact in anonymous, suburban neighborhoods. Things went better for Elliott. Between producer Spielberg’s sense of awe and director Tobe Hooper’s capacity for imaginative terror, the original Poltergeist far exceeded expectations, and though several sequences have not aged well, it remains a potent horror show. A generation later, we return to Glen Echo Circle, now the victim of a downturned economy, as are the Bowens. Sam Rockwell and Rosemary DeWitt play the parents unwillingly…

    Tomorrowland by George Wolf Long before the credits roll, Tomorrowland will have you craving a theme park turkey leg and planning a meet up at Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. To be fair, it’s hardly the first time Disney has gone meta at the multiplex. They’ve had recent success with films based on their rides, and films based on their films. Now they’re moved on to an entire section of the Magic Kingdom, so why does it feel like you never stop standing in line? Mostly, because there’s so much talk and little action. George Clooney brings his considerable star power to the…

    Tangerines by Hope Madden It’s 1992 in what had recently been the Soviet Union. The Abkhazians of western Georgia have declared independence and Civil War has broken out. The battle is almost at Ivo’s door, but even as natives kill for the land under his feet, the Estonian immigrant tends the Tangerines. He and a neighbor – also Estonian by birth – hope to harvest the crop before it is lost to the war. It’s a lovely central image: two elderly men with no dog in the fight working against the clock tending to the region’s natural bounty. Unfortunately, the fight comes…

Writer/director Andrew Niccol uses a more understated and intimate road to the same destination with his latest effort, Good Kill. The film follows Tom Egan (Ethan Hawke), a man who flew 6 tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan and is now on his third tour in a Vegas cubical piloting drones. From 7000 miles away he watches, then eliminates Taliban threats. Then he goes home to barbeque. As a writer, Niccol has a long history of mining similar ideas – the…

    Today we celebrate the ladies – the really, super scary ones. We are counting down our favorite female villains from horror. Now, we’re not talking about the great supporting villains – the ones who had villainy help – like Julia (Claire Higgins) from Hellraiser or Mrs. White (Piper Laurie) from Carrie. They are outstanding and terrifying, but they’re not the main antagonist in the film. Nor are we including the terrifying protagonists – not Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) or Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) from Ginger Snaps, or May (Angela Bettis). No, our goal is…

    by Mad Max Fury Road is a brilliant and compelling resurrection of the post-apocalyptic Mad Max universe, with director George Miller returning from an almost 30 year hiatus from the franchise. The film has been met with critical acclaim from movie critics and fans alike, and enormous disdain from whiny pissbabies who hate women, both of which are reason enough for me to see almost any movie. This combined with the promise of little dialogue, no romantic subplots, at least one explosion per five minute time frame, kickass female characters, the takedown of a fascist, cult-like regime, and a…

    by The casting process is completed and Sony Pictures has cast Asa Butterfield to play Peter Parker in the new movies. Butterfield made his name in movies like Ender’s Game, Hugo and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. This is a good choice. Don’t get me wrong, I thought Andrew Garfield was fantastic in the two Amazing Spider-Man movies, but Marvel wants Peter Parker to be back in high school again. Luckily, they aren’t going with an origin story, since that has already been done twice in the last 15 years and Spider-Man already has his powers when we meet him. The first…

    A couple of days ago I saw Exodus: Gods and Kings, the first movie I saw after a long while of not watching anything substantial. I wanted to say it was good but there was something missing and my second thought was that it wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, it was average. To be precise it started very good, Christian Bale presented this ancient world in an interesting angle, his interaction with Joel Edgerton (Ramses) was excellent. Both actors had a very good interaction between each other and the environment they were in. Before his exile Christian Bale was intriguing enough,…

This Dracula adaptation presented to us the humane version of Count Dracula. The film managed to convince me in the logical reasons that driven Vlad to become the monster everyone feared. Even the clues Vlad spread throughout the film claiming that a monster that is feared can serve as a greater good, and that was his personnel redemption line. Trailer: Dracula Untold…

    I just finished watching Gotham's 14 episode of its first season. Unfortunately Gotham refuses to improve. The plot is not appealing and on a straight route to nowhere. Seeing Gordon being punished and sent to Arkham for two whole episodes was a poor shock element just to exit to the winter break with a bang, only without the bang itself (check our Gotham mid season reviews). This was one of the frustrating things about the show that we saw so far. Most of the characters are poorly written and none of them makes you cheer for them, with me it generates the opposite.

    In the immortal words of Boney M: “Oh, those Russians…” One can’t help but agree with the sentiment when watching Solaris, a three-hour Soviet sci-fi slog. Kris Kelvin (Donatas Banionis) is sent to an all but abandoned space station where he meets – or possibly hallucinates – his dead wife (Natalya Bondarchuk). In a cinematic Space Race, Andrei Tarkovsky responded to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey with this painfully slow adaptation of Stanisław Lem’s novel. Although the two films are the same length, Solaris feels about 2001 times…

    As Mad Max: Fury Road roars into cinemas, let’s take a look at George Miller’s dystopian franchise, set in a post-apocalyptic Australia where all that survived armageddon is leather. Mad Max (1979) We first meet Mel Gibson’s Max as a cop on the trail of a vicious biker gang that makes the Hell’s Angels look like the Salvation Army. A stripped-down B movie, Mad Max moves at breakneck speed; the rip-roaring car-and-bike chases are driven by a sense of danger that can only be achieved by sending stuntmen flying through the air. Miller is already exhibiting his ingenuity…

    This is a French drama about a teenage girl named Marieme (Karidja Touré), who lives in a deprived Parisian neighbourhood. With a difficult home life and no real opportunities, she finds friendship in a gang. A superb slice of social realism, the filmhas its share of sadness. But it also has moments of elation, which celebrate friendship and sisterhood. One stand-out scene sees Marieme and her friends dancing to Diamonds by Rihanna; a mediocre pop song that takes on meaningful resonance. The cast, some of whom were scouted in the street, are impressively naturalistic – particularly the…

    Timothy Dalton makes his second and final appearance as James Bond in Licence to Kill, which is English for License to Kill. Dalton’s Bond is a more serious character than his predecessor, the tongue-in-cheek Roger Moore – and after A View to a Kill, the franchise literally couldn’t get any sillier. Following The Living Daylights, this is an altogether darker affair that marks the franchise’s first 15 certificate. It’s also the most personal 007 movie since On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, as Bond goes rogue and seeks revenge on the crooks who attacked…

While Samuel L Jackson is known for his roles in huge blockbusters, he’s also no stranger to a low budget B movie, and Big Game is his weirdest since Snakes on a Plane. It takes its unusual Finnish setting from its writer/director Jalmari Helander, who makes sure we see the full glory of the…

  • Spartacus

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

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

    WTF. One of the most psychologically disturbing movies I’ve ever seen. Gone Girl (based on a novel) is the story of a missing person case in which the husband is the prime suspect, based on evidence revealed throughout the movie. The things that stand out in this movie are both the plot and visuals. The story manages to keep you guessing until the end and the visuals create an eerie feeling during the movie. This film comes highly recommended and it really gives you something to think about. Links: IMDB | The post Gone Girl appeared first on Refined Distractions.

    A brilliantly executed series. Fargo is a dark comedy in which an individual’s (Lester) actions are greatly influenced by a wandering assassin that meets him when he is at a low point in his life. One of the things to appreciate in this show is the actors who do an incredible job of fleshing out their characters. In addition, the suspense and eerie landscapes (mostly snow :)) make the show highly entertaining. Definitely worth checking out, even more so if you’re a fan of the movie.

    1 Jun 2014 | 5:25 pm
    Just one of the best! The Wire takes place in Baltimore Maryland, each season showing a different aspect of the city’s state of being in crime, government, education, etc. The show is masterfully crafted with every episode slowly delving deeper into various story lines that come together in a powerful finale in every season. It is primarily told from the point of view of Detective McNulty as he attempts to bring down those responsible for the drug distribution. The many characters are vividly presented over the course of the series along with superb dialogue unique to the setting.

    It feels like deja vu: last year, at about the same time, The Flash pilot leaked online and now, today, the Supergirl pilot has leaked. Is there someone at DC Entertainment that just doesn’t like to not share screeners, or something? The pilot leaked online a little after midnight and, within six hours, it had already been downloaded 120,000 times. The majority of vocal comic book fans out there – remember, I said vocal – haven’t shied away from expressing their disappointment and disgust with CBS’ new Supergirl show. While many of their points are valid, we…

    Paramount was just as surprised as the rest of us when World War Z became a blockbuster hit back in 2013. It grossed over $500 million, which was shocking considering the many reshoots, delays, and production issues it had. Due to its massive success for Paramount and Brad Pitt, the studio is continuing the story with a sequel. That sequel – World War Z 2, or whatever it will be titled – has been set to release on June 9, 2017, opposite Fantastic Four 2. Although World War Z was nothing like the novel it is based upon – World War Z by Max Brooks – I thoroughly enjoyed…

    To be perfectly honest here, I completely forgot Disney was making a live-action Tinkerbell movie. It was first announced way back in 2010 with Elizabeth Banks playing Tinkberbell, but nothing came of it. Since then, we have gotten live-action movies of Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, and Cinderella, with many more on the way: Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Mulan, Pinocchio, and Winnie the Pooh, as well as a new Alice in Wonderland.

Quickly, it devolved into the antiquated villain-of-the-week crap all of these shows succumb to. Will this formula ever stop? Is it because it's easy? It must be.

Very quickly, people are turning their noses up at a film that is a perfect specimen of '80s nostalgia wrapped up in shiny two hour package of bent metal, amazing visual elements, and tons of verifiably insane stunt work. What's so wrong with that? Absolutely nothing. Get over yourself. Mad Max movies have always featured a paper thin story with terribly confused continuity…

    Nudity whether in glimpses, through clothes, in silhouette or in the distance was strictly banned by the 1930 Motion Picture Production Code. According to the code nudity in any form was “immoral” and should be completely avoided. Despite this, Pre-code films are full of it. Instead of straight “in fact” nudity, directors became sneaky but attempting to make the nudity tantalisingly quick or part of the plot. Several actresses, like Jean Harlow and Norma Shearer created screen legends based on what they or didn’t wear. Thankfully, this clever film making has been preserved and…

    As you get older, explosions and sexual innuendo in movies no longer bring you the excitement they used to when you were younger. It’s not even that you want to see something overly artistic. Quite the opposite. You want something clever that tickles your brain but sticks to a certain maturity level. Essentially, you want to watch a movie that makes you feel like an adult. Not just any adult but the cool cynical adult that needs that every-now-and-again reminder that life isn’t so bad. Let’s discuss the trailer for the movie Learning to Drive.

One country that seems exempt from the current cultural fascination with “Nordic Noir” is Finlan. Whereas other (mostly Scandinavian) countries in Northern Europe are importing their grim and gripping thrillers worldwide, Finnish cinema seems to be playing to a different trend entirely from their neighbouring cousins.

    In some ways, the cinema is the closest thing we can experience to travelling through time – certainly the closest of any art form. In the dark room of a movie theatre, an audience can be transported to the distant past or spectacular visions of the future, and even in watching films from the 30’s and 40’s we can look at the lives and faces of people who died many years ago. Time travel became popular as a literary device with HG Well’s The Time Machine – published in 1895, the same year that the Lumière Brothers made Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat. So time…

    13 May 2015 | 3:38 am
    by Tony Dayoub Gonzo doesn't even begin to describe Mad Max: Fury Road. The fourth entry in the Mad Max series comes thirty years (!) after the last film, with the broken, post-apocalyptic highway patrolman formerly played by Mel Gibson now re-interpreted by Tom Hardy. And one of the things writer-director (and franchise mainstay) George Miller does with a better actor at the helm is give road warrior Max Rockatansky an inner life. Whereas Gibson's Max was filled with rage at the world of "fire and blood" that took his wife and child, Hardy's Max is literally mad. This Max tries to stay busy…

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is beating whole flocks of HYDRA soldiers with one swing of his hammer, Mjolnir.

Determined to bring their remains back to Australia, Connor sets out for Çanakkale, Turkey and encounters a larger number of Turks sympathetic to his mission than anyone could imagine.

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…

People think that you’re never going to be sad, people think that you’re never going need them to be there for you, people expect you to be there for them round the clock even though you have your own battles to fight. That’s the problem with being strong.” - All the quotes on tumblr you can relate to in this blog (via thelovewhisperer)

    ConradEmmett

    Brad Pitt is coming back to WORLD WAR Z for the sequel — but despite him being bloody ace, is that a good thing? There’s something a little odd about WORLD WAR Z — on the one hand it is the highest grossing film of Brad Pitt’s career, and on the other I can’t help […]

    ConradEmmett

    THE GALLOWS is a trailer with awful execution. And not in a good way. I’ll start with two disclaimers, right up front.

Not flock-to-the-cinema good, but quite fun nonetheless.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    16 May 2015 | 5:17 pm
    Mad Max: Fury Road      There is no question that director George Miller is an enigma in his own right. I mean, it is quite hard to believe that this is the same man who produced cheerful and family-oriented films such as "Babe" and "Happy Feet." This rendition of Mad Max is surely his Magnum Opus (as well as an insight into the eccentric and outlandish portion of his mind), yet it is also a magnificent work of art that has been in production hell for far too long.      A simple allegory--yes--but it is also a testament to his particular style and brand of…
  • Mad Max

    16 May 2015 | 5:12 pm
    Mad Max      If there is anything to be said about the 1979 film entitled "Mad Max," a picture that spawned one of the most underrated action franchises in the history of the cinema, it has to be in regard to the relentless suspense that enshrouds this rather nihilistic and peculiar atmosphere. Director George Miller not only instills a sense of uncertainty into a plot that is routinely simplistic (considering its focus on a sole persona and his progressive descent into darkness), but he does so in such a way that captures the essence of Ozploitation cinema--a term that…

    The Prince of Egypt ★1/2     We are told at the beginning of Dreamworks' "The Prince of Egypt" that the film remains true to the essence, value, and integrity of the story at hand (that being the book of Exodus and Moses), and this is verifiable to a certain extent. In fact, we have a picture here that not only indulges into themes scarcely aligned with children's animated features, but one that has a tone and mood brimming with a hint of fear; a fear that can only be attributed to God's wrath. (Which can be a profound experience for any adolescent.)    Although the…

    Avengers: Age of Ultron     As "Avengers: Age of Ultron" descends into theaters with no regard for one's financial stability, it only alludes to the notion that Hollywood blockbusters are still very much in demand, especially if they contain characters of superhuman capabilities and costumes that utilize the synthetic fiber of Spandex, among other aspects. Although the film hits on several key notes that were regrettably forgotten in the first installment, "Age of Ultron" does little to make that progression towards something that is more sophisticated than what it actually is:…

    Simon Brew
    22 May 2015 | 1:32 pm
    2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off... Feature The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed. Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its…

    The Poltergeist remake summons some dangerous spirits from the past, and we haven't even gotten to the ghosts... Attempting to remake an '80s touchstone like Poltergeist was always going to be a tricky proposition. First of all, the Steven Spielberg storied and Tobe Hooper directed (or perhaps also Spielberg directed?) original is something akin to hallowed ground in this genre. And then on the other bedeviling hand is the fact that just about every suburban supernatural yarn has already done this in one way or another. So going in to the Poltergeist redo, director Gil Kenan was…

  • Joel Edgerton’s The Gift Looks Promising…

    21 May 2015 | 6:14 am
    I always wondered if Jason Bateman could do more than comedy. Don’t get me wrong the guy makes me laugh and he has playing the straight man down to a ‘T’, but I never pegged him for a serious actor, let alone in a genre film. Not that The Gift is straight genre, but judging by the trailer it definitely has strokes of genre. Writer/director Joel Edgerton (Yeah, the guy from Warrior and Zero Dark Thirty) is making this his first go at the director’s chair and I gotta say it looks like a wild time. I always dig these kind of mystery/suspense flicks and we all know…

    Have you ever walked into a comic book shop and asked yourself “I really want to read a comic book about sexual intercourse and a retired super hero who’s trying to be a business man.” Then poof out of no where comes Sex! No..not actual sex, the comic book Sex. Good lord there is really isn’t anyway to make that sentence any less creepy. But Sex is….well…fantastic?

That’s like finding out the cure for being fat and bald is eating pizza and playing video games… Okay maybe not THAT good, but pretty damn close. It may not be as awesome as curing bald/fat, but Let Us Prey looks like a wild time AND it hits VOD/DVD & Blu Ray next week.  First time director Brian O’Malley is really swinging for the fences here and had lined up a damn cool cast.

  • Knock Knock Trailer: Keanu Reeves Pays for Cheating

    Guillermo Troncoso
    22 May 2015 | 3:19 am
    Keanu Reeves cheats and pays the price in Knock Knock, the latest horror film from director Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel). Reeves plays Evan Webber, a loving father and husband who lets in two attractive women asking for help. Bad idea. After the two seduce him and leave, they return to teach him a lesson or two. The new trailer shows us plenty more footage, providing snippets of the torture Reeves’ character in forced to endure. We’re intrigued with this one. While Roth’s resume isn’t very long, he’s established himself in the horror circuit and has a pretty…
  • Wild Tales REVIEW

    Zac Platt
    22 May 2015 | 12:45 am
    Revenge is a complicated thing. No matter how slight the injustice, we have a primal need to set things right, to stand up for ourselves, and to make someone pay. More often than not it’ll probably end up making everything worse, but when pushed far enough even the most level-headed of us will damn the consequences and give in to the white hot rage. Sometimes that means losing just as much as whoever it is being punished, but really it’s a matter of perspective whether that momentary catharsis was worth the cost. In hopes of answering that question Wild Tales offers six perspectives on…
  • Expanding Transformers Franchise Gathers Writers

    21 May 2015 | 9:55 pm
    Paramount’s Transformers franchise is set to get more sequels and spinoff films, and the “writers room” to spearhead the creativity has been formed. According to Deadline, Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead), Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man writers), Jeff Pinker (Lost), and Zak Penn (Pacific Rim 2) are the first writers chosen to work with producer Akiva Goldsman in pushing out more films. Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg and Lorenzo di Bonaventura still form the brain trust. The numbers speak for themselves, with Age of Extinction‘s $1.1 billion worldwide draw…

    Disney is developing a live-action film on the Peter Pan character Tinker Bell, and Reese Witherspoon’s been handed the lead. THR reports that the Oscar winning actress will be starring in and producing Tink, a picture set to “offer a new perspective” on the fairy character. Word is that Disney is aiming for another Maleficent angle, offering a new take on a side character while running alongside the key story we all know. While there is no director on board as yet, Finding Dory screenwriter Victoria Strouse is attached to pen Tink‘s script. Disney’s live-action…
  • Poltergeist REVIEW

    Chris Dempsey
    20 May 2015 | 9:16 am
    After years in development hell, Poltergeist proves to be more pointless than frightening. The image of a small girl with hands pressed against the white static of an over-sized television screen is one burned into the memory of all classic horror fans. Poltergeist (1982) was an iconic film that brought the disturbing nature of horror directly into the living room of the middle-class suburban home. For this reboot of the definitive film, director Gil Kenan (Monster House), with the help of master of horror and producer Sam Raimi, attempts to bring this bloodless horror into the modern era.

  • Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Two Coming To Netflix Next Month

    Nicole Sobon
    21 May 2015 | 3:01 pm
    When season one of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wrapped last May, it seemed to take forever for the show to hit Netflix. If you'll recall, it wasn't added to Netflix until November, and at that point, the show was already in its second season. This made it difficult for those hoping to binge watch the first season on Netflix before diving into season two. This year, fans won't have that problem. If you're hoping to catch-up on season two of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. before season three premieres in September, you'll be able to do so as of June 11th.

    Connecting Imaginary Dots is our title here at MCU Exchange for speculation pieces, so though the title is a definitive statement, make no mistake - this piece represents nothing more than some informed guesswork, and doesn't claim any kind of insider info. That said, we think our reasoning is pretty solid, and while we could be completely off base, we think we've got a pretty good guess about the new characters who will be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 As we reported yesterday, James Gunn recently revealed he may be adding only two new characters to Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

As with every sequel and new movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the cast for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is bound to expand behind the characters everyone loved in the original. So far we know that Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax the Destroyer), Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Karen Gillan (Nebula), and Michael Rooker (Yondu) will all return in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but…

Elizabeth Olsen, who made her debut as Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron, was actually spotted on the set of Captain America: Civil War a few days ago, although not in character. Like with Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Olsen is seen wearing civilian clothing as opposed to her costume from Avengers: Age of Ultron, so as of right now, we don't know how different her look will be in this film.

Before we get too deep into this rumor, let me clearly state that the outlet reporting this is fairly unknown to us, so please take this rumor with a grain of salt. With that said, they did confirm the BleedingCool report on Quicksilver's demise, as well as correctly named the members of the new Avengers team 1 month prior to the release of Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

  • Black Patch (1957)

    20 May 2015 | 11:17 am
    Black Patch is a dark and serious film, which is why it has an adorable little line drawing of the marshal and his badge on the poster.   Directed by Allen H. Miner, known primarily for his television work, Black Patch (1957) is a strange and wonderful little Western, a true independent film that took the kind of risks one rarely sees in this particular genre. Conceived by Leo Gordon, a hard-working character actor who also appears in the film as co-star Hank Danner, it seems the development of the script happened almost by accident. Gordon had never sold a script before when he casually…

    It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) is your standard, teen-oriented, low-budget space flick with its narrative roots firmly implanted in the paranoia of the Cold War. It’s the kind of film where all the strings and zippers show, yet still manages to be not only entertaining, but effective. Helmed by Edward L. Cahn, the same director behind The She-Creature (1956), Creature with the Atom Brain (1955) and Invasion of the Saucer Men (1957), It! has come to be known as more than just an old-school science fiction classic, but as the inspiration behind Alien (1979), one of the most…

    In 1933, at the height of the Depression, a nation in desperate need of distraction broke box office records for the lavish Hollywood musical 42nd Street. This unabashed slice of wish fulfillment is an undisputed cinematic classic, the granddaddy of all Hollywood backstage musicals, and now out on Blu-ray courtesy Warner Archives. Theater director Julian Marsh (Warner Baxter) has one last shot at creating a hit on the stage.

Though it possesses less of the sophistication and psychological angst of the other films, Velvet Touch is still a fine movie, lovely to look at and with some really solid performances. When…

  • “Poltergeist” Review: A Less-Quirky Take on Some Old Familiar Fears

    David Conrad
    22 May 2015 | 9:21 am
    Is there a more family-friendly horror movie than Poltergeist? The 1982 original, written and produced by Steven Spielberg but ostensibly not directed by him (watch the camerawork and tell me with a straight face that Spielberg wasn’t calling the shots), could almost have been an after-school special. Gil Kenan’s 2015 remake starring Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt is also a breezy, cheerful affair, as movies about angry hauntings go. (Kenan also directed the animated Monster House.) It offers plenty of fleeting scares – jumps that come in the usual ways, their effects dampened by…

    22 May 2015 | 8:14 am
    “I said I liked it – I didn’t say I wanted to kiss it.” It’s interesting watching In A Lonely Place directly after seeing Notorious. It served me well as a direct alternative view into a relationship portrayed in a movie. Where Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman never convinced me they were in love, Humphrey Bogart and Gloria Grahame convinced me almost immediately. It’s an almost intangible difference which can only be attributed to chemistry between two actors. Grahame manages to seduce just with her gaze – both Bogart, and the audience – and…

Critical acclaim has been a constant throughout his varied career, but in 1999 he caught the attention of audiences, too: the film and album Buena Vista Social Club, bringing together a group of of 70-, 80-, and 90-year-old Cuban-African fusion musicians, fed off each other until the Oscar-nominated documentary had grossed $23 million and the album went platinum.

  • Actor Spotlight: James Stewart

    Jandy Hardesty
    20 May 2015 | 9:18 am
    Few actors in the history of cinema are as well-beloved as James Stewart. His affable drawl epitomizes the all-American idealist that we fear we’ve become too cynical to believe in, and yet we do when Stewart’s on-screen, backing up an easy-going personality with a passionate investment in whatever each character cares about. Whether he’s filibustering in the US Senate, arguing in court for his client’s defense, trying to maintain peace in a town of outlaws, obsessing over a potential killer or a lost lover, learning how much his life actually means to those around…

    19 May 2015 | 10:57 am
    “We are protected by the enormity of your stupidity, for a time.” I say with a heavy heart that I have finally found a Hitchcock film I dislike. I’m not sure where to place the blame, though. I’m not sure if it’s the script, Grant and Bergman, the editor Theron Warth, or Hitchcock – or all of the above. The story is a bit muddled and features particularly dislikable characters to lead it. Grant seems annoyed to be there throughout the film and has almost no chemistry with Bergman (the lauded long-kiss scene seems incredibly forced and inauthentic).

  • Martin Scorsese’s Five Best New York Films

      As both director and producer, Martin Scorsese has a long history of creating extraordinary films set in New York City. This year’s release, Revenge of the Green Dragons, proves his affinity for the Big Apple remains as strong as ever. The new film follows a Chinese immigrant as he rises within the ranks of a notorious street gang. Scorsese doesn’t sit in the director’s chair this time, filling the role of executive producer instead, but his notorious taste for gritty barbarism remains as voracious as ever. In honor of Green Dragons, here are five of Martin…

Its quite literally a tale as old as time, with a history dating back as far as the Greeks. Its also a theme that Hollywood is eternally fond of.

  • New Macbeth Clips See Michael Fassbender’s Would-Be King Ride Into Battle

    Justin Kurzel’s rendition of Macbeth has today produced two all-new clips that show Michael Fassbender’s titular character charge into battle. Featuring little-to-no dialogue – unless you count barbaric screaming – the footage is nothing if not stylish, with Kurzel orchestrating parts of the fight sequence in slow motion, making for a dramatic and haunting scene amplified by the low-lying mist. In tandem with the war footage was a clip showcasing Fassbender’s coronation as the ruling king, aided by his wife and partner-in-crime Lady Macbeth (played here by Marion…

During 1959 and 1960 Ian Fleming made two globetrotting trips for The Sunday Times, published in 1960 as a series named Thrilling Cities. In the articles Fleming provides his unique take on each of thirteen cities around the globe and such was their success that in 1963 the series was issued in book form by Jonathan Cape.

    Robert Ryan exuded masculinity and mystery in equal parts and he’s always been one of my favorite film noir actors. He could easily play a good guy but his forte was for those tormented, enigmatic characters, who were dark and volatile, moody and quick-tempered. Remember him as an embittered vet in “Act of Violence,” (1948, Fred Zinnemann), where he co-starred with Van Heflin, Janet Leigh and Mary Astor? He made his mark the previous year as a vicious bigot in “Crossfire” (1947, Edward Dmytryk) with Robert Young, Robert Mitchum and Gloria Grahame. He was unforgettable as the…

    Orson Welles was born May 6, 1915. He hailed from the small Midwestern town of Kenosha, Wisc. Chubby cheeked and heavy-set, he was not classically good looking. He frequently ran afoul of the Hollywood studio execs. He was considered a genius of theater, radio and film, but many of his movies were not financially successful. He had a hard time staying faithful to one woman. His appetite was prodigious. Younger viewers might remember him as a TV spokesman for Gallo wine. Orson Welles, who was born 100 years ago today, experienced unparalleled ups and downs over the course of his impressive…

    Call Of Duty Black Ops 2   Call Of Duty has been one voted and rated one of the best Video Game franchises in history by many. In my honest opinion from my first experience with the the Call Of Duty series I was addicted from the first time I played. Call Of Duty, especially Call Of Duty Black Ops 2 is with out a doubt the best in the series. If you havent heard of this game, you must be on another planet. It has numerous commercials featuring superstar celebrities. Call of duty has been in movies, magazines, tv shows, and been one of the contributing factors to internet rage quit memes…

    WWE 2K14 Video Game Review WWE 2K14 is the first wrestling game I have actually since SmackDown Know Your Role on Playslstation. Yea it’s been quite awhile… But anyways WWE 2K14 is pretty good for what you get. The graphics are great, gameplay is pretty decent and moves are fluent. My only real complaint with WWE 2K14 and this actually would affect me paying full price for the game or anything other then $20 or less is that in WWE 2K14 the original style story mode that I loved seems to be gone. Yea that kinda sucks.. WWE 2K14 does have a game mode called 30 Years Of Wrestlemania…

    Army Of Two – The Devils Cartel Video Game Review So for April our good friends at Microsoft decided to give us 4 free games this month. One of which was Army Of Two The Devils Cartel. I have to say I am actually pretty pleased with this game. It offered a good story line, great gameplay, & was a pretty decent length. If I had to assume I would say its about a good 7 hours of straight gameplay. Even though I was hesitated to play Army Of Two due to multiple people in the past telling me it was a short game, after playing it myself I have become somewhat of a fan of this franchise.

    Top 10 Horrible Movies This is my list of Top 10 Horrible Movies… Lets flip the shit switch and get this Top 10 list going. 10. After Earth – I’ve reviewed this failure before. Take a look at it here. After Earth just proves because your parents are good doesn’t mean your good. Plus it was a horrible plot. 9. Snoop Doggs Hood Of Horror – I was a huge fan of his music but come on Snoop. The effects and acting are horrendous. 8. Spanglish – Im not sure why Adam Sandler the comedic genius went for the but im mad he did and tried to charge people to watch it.

  • Film Review: Tomorrowland: A World Beyond

    Tara
    21 May 2015 | 7:02 am
    Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland: A World Beyond is brimming with wonder. The film is reminiscent of a traditional adventure movie, and as such is a very entertaining journey. When teen space aficionado Casey Newton gets a glimpse of a futuristic world, she is determined to learn more. She enlists the help of Frank Walker, a reluctant former boy genius, who has also visited the wondrous place… Tomorrowland: A World Beyond is a triumph of spectacle. Director and co-writer Brad Bird delivers wonder in spades. Visually, the film is sumptuous with its fantasy depictions. Bird has effectively…
  • Film Review: Moomins on the Riviera

    Tara
    19 May 2015 | 2:23 am
    Big screen adaptation of the popular book and comic strip series Moomins on the Riviera is a delightful animated feature. The film should please younger and older viewers alike. The Moomins, along with Little My, decide to take their boat off on adventure to the Riviera. After a tumultuous journey, the family makes it to the Riviera, but the vacation proves to be an eye-opening experience… Based on the comic strip of the same name, Moomins on the Riviera brings Tove Jansson’s characters to the big screen. The film is something of an ode to its source material, with its traditional…
  • Film Review: Mad Max: Fury Road

    Tara
    13 May 2015 | 2:21 pm
    George Miller’s reboot of his post-apocalyptic film series is a force to be reckoned with. Mad Max: Fury Road is exhilarating viewing; and perhaps the best example of how to produce a superlative belated sequel. In a post-apocalyptic desert, Max lives life as a scavenger. An encounter with the ruling tribe throws Max together with Furiosa, a woman on a mission… With so many reboots, remakes and belated sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road could have easily been another franchise film lost in the mix. Viewers who experience the ferocity of writer-director George Miller’s latest…

  • Film Review: Metamorphoses

    Tara
    6 May 2015 | 7:37 am
    Writer-director Christophe Honoré’s Metamorphoses is an interesting but not wholly successful transplant of Ovid’s poem to modern day France. The ideas are there, even if the execution is lacking. A girl is approached by a strange boy outside her high school. The girl decides to follow him, to hear stories of the gods, and how they fall in love with human beings… Christophe Honoré’s film offers an appealing premise; a modern interpretation of Ovid’s famous poem. Metamorphoses transplants elements of Ovid’s poem to a modern, but also otherworldly…

  • Interstellar: Visually Outstanding

    14 May 2015 | 5:36 pm
    There is no wonder why the new movie ‘Interstellar’ had won the Oscar for ‘visual effects’ as multiple scenes contain visions that are absolutely stunning! I was truly amazed by what I was watching, and the plot is also fantastic. It is surprising that the film didn’t do better at this year’s Academy Awards but there were certain elements to the production that I did not agree with, with which I attend to discuss later on.Read more »

Directed and starring Joel Edgerton (Warrior), ‘The Gift’ will portray a young married couple who move in to a new home where their lives change for the worse. An acquaintance from the husbands past brings mysterious gifts and a terrifying secret that’s lasted for two decades.These types of movies are usually so intense, as they tend to be filled with anxious moments and chilling mysteries. ‘The Gift’ looks to have the tools to create a suspenseful experience and for this, I recommend viewing it when it’s…

    As proverbial pools of water ripple with tremors from the imminently approaching assault of Jurassic World, the towering terror anticipated from the now-mythical Indominus Rex continues to reach epic proportions.
