    The Weinstein Company This Labor Day, we are laboring over exactly one thing: our schedule for this week’s Toronto International Film Festival. The annual Canadian embarrassment of riches kicks off this Thursday, and we’re in the middle of a mad dash to make sure our schedules and plans allow for viewings of everything we want to see. It’s not easy — in fact, with a slate as stacked as TIFF’s, it’s actually impossible — but we’re dead-set on cramming each day with top-tier talent, Oscar contenders and a few smaller features that just might…

  • Telluride 2014: True Stories Turn to Festival Hits in "The Imitation Game," "The Price of Fame"

    31 Aug 2014 | 7:10 pm
    Opinions at film festivals rarely reach consensus, given how fractious and divided personal tastes run. Trends are easier to capture. Among the new crop of films being screened this weekend, highly touted ones have included "The Imitation Game", "The Price of Fame," and "99 Homes," a significant critical comeback for director Ramin Bahrani after "At Any Price."Norwegian director Morten Tyldum detonated critical and public consciousness with his lively "Headhunters," two years ago. He returns with "The Imitation Game," debuting this weekend. "That was good," a woman said after the film's…
  • Telluride 2014: Personal Politics in "Rosewater," "Tales of the Grim Sleeper"

    Patrick Z. McGavin
    30 Aug 2014 | 5:52 pm
    The political is personal, and all pervasive, as revealed over and over as we move to the first full day of screenings at the 41st edition of this year's festival. The mode of political inquiry, moral, aesthetic and existential is recurrent in the early works shown here. It is inescapable. "Rosewater" is the directorial debut of the observant and often lacerating political humorist, sometime actor and "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart, here adapting the memoir of the Iranian-born author, filmmaker, playwright and journalist Maziar Bahari. Bahari, who's made his own films about the highly…

    As a sometime theater critic, I try not to play for tickets and I rarely sit in the front row, but for George Takei's musical "Allegiance" I made an exception in 2012. That was not because I was a fan of "Star Trek: The Original Series" or because I follow George Takei on Facebook. I was back in Balboa Park San Diego, the place where I learned to love theater, because an elderly relative wished to see the show. I don't remember ever attending theater, particularly the Old Globe, with her, but it was something she wanted to do, and something I could do to repay all of her past kindnesses. The…

    Every major film festival cultivates a privileged aura. Sundance asserts the primacy of the American independent and heralds the wonder of the breakthrough discovery. Cannes celebrates the cultural prominence of film as a fabric of French cultural life. Toronto animates a very Canadian brand of egalatarianism and social inclusiveness.The Telluride Film festival, which kicks off its 41st iteration formally today, is the most furtive. In movie language, Telluride is a noir connoting something shadowy and unknowable, and governed by its own internal logic. As a four-day boutique festival that…

    It was a lazy weekend, so I was reading the New York Times Vows section in more detail than usual. “Tracy Weiler and Kev Davenport were married Saturday at Wahill farm in Batesville, Indiana” went a feature with a cute photo of the couple in a Jeep. “The Rev. David A. Johnson, a minister of the United Church of Christ, officiated at a ceremony led by Ryan Lympus, a friend of the couple.” “Ms. Weiler, 31, is keeping her name.” Huh? I thought.

  • 5 Things I Incorrectly Learned From the Movies About Having a Baby

    Christopher Campbell
    1 Sep 2014 | 2:00 pm
    Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation The other day, a pregnant friend said she was scared of giving birth after watching Friends With Kids. In that movie, Jennifer Westfeldt‘s character is in a lot of pain during labor, despite having an epidural (drugs). Being an expert, I guess, having just experienced the birth of my second kid, I told her to relax. Sure, some women still feel some pressure during delivery, but for the most part it’s all numb down there. That is the point of paying thousands of dollars to get it.

If IMDB is to be trusted, it also takes place over millions of years (most likely lived in land-bound, cloud-envying frustration). On its own, the teaser trailer is sweet and lightweight with some excellent time-lapse-aping visuals, but as yet another sign of Pixar’s return to originality and experimentation, it’s also a mountain-sized sigh of…

    Guardians of the Galaxy won the Labor Day weekend box office and in the process added the title of 2014’s top grossing movie to its already secured title of top grossing movie of the summer. And yes, it topped our Top 17 movies of summer 2014 too! The top three were exactly the same as they were the previous week with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles landing in second with $11.8 million and If I Stay taking third with $9.3 million. One of the two wide-release new movies that opened this past week, As Above/So Below, landed in fourth place with $8.3 million and closing out the top five was…
  • The Maze Runner Trailer: The Rules Revealed!

    29 Aug 2014 | 1:21 pm
    As we could tell from that first The Maze Runner trailer, this is a world full of mystery. But as you can see from the latest The Maze Runner teaser, it is not a landscape without rules. Of all the teases we’ve witnessed so far, this latest one from Fox may be the most informative. The Maze Runner "Rules" Trailer Dylan O’Brien stars as a young man who awakes on an elevator taking him to the surface of a desolate landscape. The only way out, is through the titular maze. And he’s surrounded by a group of boys who all share the same fate -- none of them remember anything before they became…

    After Wesley Snipes essentially began his comeback since serving two years in jail for tax evasion with The Expendables 3, it looks like his dream of being Blade again is back on. The NY Daily News column, Confidenti@l, is reporting that Snipes has secured a deal that will pay him millions, as well as a percentage of the back-end profits and that filming will commence sooner rather than later. “Confidenti@l has learned Wesley Snipes is set to reprise his lead role in Blade, the 1998 vampire thriller that made more than $130 million and generated two sequels,” the site reported. As Blade…

    The Marvel Comics-inspired film Big Hero 6 is celebrating the return of millions and millions of kids to school with its new TV spot. The Disney film doesn’t land until November 7, but there is something so incredibly compelling about this wild looking animated film that has us wishing it was here sooner than later. Big Hero 6 TV Trailer As first teased in the full Big Hero 6 trailer, the story follows Hiro Hamada, who may be just a kid, but he is a wizard in the world of science and robotics. With his trusty robot Baymax by his side, he is set to tackle another school year in the above…

  • 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.
  • Burn Hollywood Burn

    4 Jun 2014 | 1:46 pm
    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.
  • The Adventures of Gerard

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

  • Telluride 2014: Ethan Hawke's Wonderful 'Seymour: An Introduction'

    When we look back on our lives, there are always key individuals who have an immeasurable influence on us. Not just our family (and relatives), but friends, mentors, teachers, those with learned wisdom to impart and lessons to teach. If they say the right things they can alter our destiny forever, or remind us why/how life is worth living in the midst of the constant stress and chaos of this world. Seymour: An Introduction is a documentary by actor Ethan Hawke introducing us to his inspiration - the piano legend Seymour Bernstein, who is such a humble, charming, considerate man. This…

    "Rome is finished, my friend." Pier Paolo Pasolini is one of the most iconic filmmakers Italy has ever produced, and he also had his hands in many other arenas as a poet, novelist, journalist, playwright, actor, painter, philosopher, and more. Now Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Out of the Furnace) will bring him to life in the aptly titled Pasolini, the latest film from Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, Mulberry St.). The film chronicles the final days of Pasolini's life and the events surrounding his murder. Now the first trailer for the film has arrived (the film plays at TIFF), and this looks to be…
  • Watch: Boy Scouts Find Terror in TIFF Midnight Selection 'Cub' Trailer

    1 Sep 2014 | 10:36 am
    The 2014 Toronto International Film Festival will see some big films debuting in Canada, but there's also plenty of lower key flicks that festival goers should take notice of. One such film seems to be Cub, part of the Midnight Madness section at the festival. The film follows a group of Cub Scouts who find themselves stalked by a psychopathic huntsman who has riddled the forest with ingenious and deadly traps. The film comes from Belgium, and unfortunately there's no subtitles for the ominous scout song being sung in the trailer, but once you see the trailer, you realize that it's not really…

    There has been so much buzz and success for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy since the film hit theaters last month. The sci-fi action flick just topped the box office again this past weekend, and is now the highest grossing film (domestically) of the year so far. Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. recently praised the film saying that it might be Marvel's best one yet. And the demand for a cute dancing Groot toy has resulted in the real thing. Now we figured we show off some fun from before the film was made with Karen Gillan shaving her head to play the bald, cybernetically enhanced villain…

    A remake of John Carpenter's revered action thriller Escape from New York has been gestating for years, but no one seems to be able to get it off the ground. The most recent attempt in the works was reported about a year and a half ago with Studio Canal teaming with super producer Joel Silver (The Matrix, Lethal Weapon) and his Silver Pictures banner to start from scratch on the project. Now it sounds like they're making some progress as a rumor from Starlog (via Badass Digest) has surfaced saying that Pacific Rim and recently crowned King Arthur star Charlie Hunnam is the top contender to…

Months after Thrones star Gwendoline Christie joined the cast of J.J.

Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney Channel October 3 before assuming its regular slot October 13 on Disney XD. Yes, the show – which is set between Episodes III and IV – is mostly aimed at kids, but it also sets up a lot of what we can expect from Star Wars in the days, months and years ahead. What I mean is, Rebels – and likely the upcoming movies – will explore tangents fans may have thought about, but never got to see. For an example, see the latest Star Wars Rebels…
  • Rumor: Amazon Reviving ‘The Tick’ TV Series, Patrick Warburton Returning

    Russ Fischer
    29 Aug 2014 | 6:26 pm
    Late on a Friday before a holiday weekend is the worst time to fact-check anything, so we’re in the position of praying this is true. A report says that Fox and Amazon have made a deal for Amazon to do a new live-action series based on Ben Edlund‘s The Tick. The show revolved around a giant, good-natured and bumbling hero played by Patrick Warburton. A spot-on blend of broad comedy and sharp satire, the show originally ran for only nine episodes on Fox from 2001 to 2002. Or, as Edlund once described it: “a superheroic portrait of genuine human lameness.” The best…

    We’re on the topic of big Cannes 2014 films, as we just offered up the trailer for Leviathan. I noted in that post that Leviathan didn’t win the Palme d’Or, but here’s a new trailer for the film that did: Winter Sleep, from Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylon. Where Leviathan appears to be a small story that gets bigger as it goes, Winter Sleep is about a small set of characters that are gradually drawn into tighter proximity. Expect a quiet film, slowly rhythmic, that follows a one-time actor, his young wife, and his recently divorced sister, all of whom are pushed…

    Filipino auteur Lav Diaz, a filmmaker known for a freeform approach that has his features lasting up to 11 hours or more, has developed a following among cinephiles in Thailand, thanks to programs curated over the years by the Thai Short Film and Video Festival and Filmvirus.In fact, it was at the 2007 Digital Forum started that year by the Thai Short Film and Video Festival, where I saw my first Diaz film, Heremias, which blew my mind and hooked me instantly.Now, thanks to that freedom-embracing "video" portion of the Thai Short Film and Video Fest, one of Diaz' latest efforts will come to…

There’s something to the idea of fusing a film from the largely unconnected stories that might exist as “issues” of a graphic novel, but this isn’t how you make such a theory work. The film kicks off with Marv (Mickey Rourke) walking us through an encounter that simply serves as an explanation of who he is, and puts him into the world so that we recognize him when he…

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

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

  • 'Love Is Strange' review: Lithgow, Molina are endearing

    Walter Addiego
    28 Aug 2014 | 9:25 am
    Fine performances from two stage and screen veterans, and a keen sense of balance between humor and poignancy, elevates "Love Is Strange" above what it might have been in lesser hands - contrived and sentimental. There's been lots of favorable buzz about the work of John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a married couple coping with an enforced separation, and the praise is deserved. Artist Ben (Lithgow) and music teacher George (Molina) have cohabited in Manhattan's West Village for 39 years, and happily take advantage of the new legality of same-sex marriage in New York. The two will have to…
  • 'The Trip to Italy,' review: This movie goes nowhere

    Mick LaSalle
    28 Aug 2014 | 9:25 am
    For those just getting onboard, "The Trip" was a film from a few years back, which followed British comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon on a culinary tour of England. The men played semi-fictionalized versions of themselves, but they ate in real places, and much of the conversation was extemporized. The chief culprit in this is Brydon, who was only mildly irritating in "The Trip," but now, perhaps encouraged by the positive response to the first film, is uncontainable. In addition to Caine, he carts out imitations of Al Pacino (ghastly, sounds nothing like him), Christian Bale (forget it),…
  • 'Life of Crime' review: Stellar cast pulls off gentle kidnapping

    Michael Ordoña
    28 Aug 2014 | 9:25 am
    Life of Crime Crime drama/black comedy. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Tim Robbins, and Isla Fisher. Directed by Daniel Schechter. (Rated R. 99 minutes.) When considering the late, great Elmore Leonard's works, one thinks of memorable dialogue, colorful losers and lowlifes, amusing twists and occasional jarring brutality. One doesn't usually think of gentleness. That, however, is one of the defining characteristics of "Life of Crime," the black comedy adapted by writer-director Daniel Schechter from Leonard's 1978 novel "The Switch.

    New reviews As Above So Below Innocence Love Is Strange Life of Crime A Summer’s Tale The Trip to Italy
  • pinkmovies0831

    27 Aug 2014 | 7:34 pm
    As Above, So Below In this horror thriller, a group of explorers investigating the catacombs beneath Paris discover a terrible secret. Not reviewed. Rated R. 93 minutes. Boyhood Richard Linklater's instant classic, filmed over the course of 12 years, tells the fictional story of a boy growing up in Texas, whose parents (Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette, both magnificent) are divorced. It's just life flowing one day and one year into the next, and it's fascinating — 166 minutes that go by in a flash. It's probably the best American movie of the decade, so far. Rated R. 166 minutes.

  • The real story of Saint Patrick

    Mohamed Sesay
    2 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    Everyone knows about Saint Patrick — the man who drove the snakes out of Ireland, defeated fierce Druids in contests of magic, and used the shamrock to explain the Christian Trinity to the pagan Irish. It’s a great story, but none of it is true. The shamrock legend came along centuries after Patrick’s death, as did the miraculous battles against the Druids. Forget about the snakes — Ireland never had any to begin with. No snakes, no shamrocks, and he wasn’t even Irish. The real story of St. Patrick is much more interesting than the myths. What we know of Patrick’s life…
  • The Wilderness Act of 1964 in historical perspective

    Abbey Lovell
    2 Sep 2014 | 4:30 am
    Signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on 3 September 1964, the Wilderness Act defined wilderness “as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain.” It not only put 1.9 million acres under federal protection, it created an entire preservation system that today includes nearly 110 million acres across forty-four states and Puerto Rico—some 5% of the land in the United States. These public lands include wildlife refuges and national forests and parks where people are welcome as visitors, but may not take…
  • The US Supreme Court should reverse Wynne – narrowly

    Maryland State Comptroller of the Treasury v. Brian Wynne requires the US Supreme Court to decide whether the US Constitution compels a state to grant an income tax credit to its residents for the out-of-state income taxes such residents pay on out-of-state income. Brian and Karen Wynne live in Howard County, Maryland. As Maryland residents, the Wynnes pay state and county income taxes on their worldwide income. The Maryland income tax statute provides that Maryland residents who pay income taxes to states in which they do not live may credit against their Maryland state income tax liability…
  • Stop and search, and the UK police

    1 Sep 2014 | 3:30 am
    The recent announcement made jointly by the Home Office and College of Policing is a vacuous document that will do little or nothing to change police practice or promote better police-public relations. Let us be clear: objections to police stop and search is not just a little local difficulty, experienced solely in this country. Similar powers are felt to be just as discriminatory throughout North America where it is regarded as tantamount to an offence of ‘driving whilst black’ (DWB). This and other cross-national similarities persist despite differences in the statutory powers upon…
  • How does color affect our way of seeing the world?

    Sara Pinotti
    1 Sep 2014 | 12:30 am
    There is a study of color perception that has gotten around enough that I would like to devote this post to how I see it, according to my take on whether, and how, language “shapes” thought and creates a “worldview.” The experiment involved the Himba people, and is deliciously tempting for those seeking to show how language creates a way of seeing the world. There are two parts to the experiment. Part One: presented with a group of squares, most of them various shades of green and one of them a robin’s egg-style blue, Himba tended to have a hard time picking out which square was…

This time I got the word in a New York Times feature, “The Moviegoers.” Here two writers, Frank Bruni and Ross Douthat, conduct an email conversation about recent films. You may have thought that the Times already has a large stable of movie reviewers, headlined by Manohla Dargis and A. O.

It confirms that Welles used not a film poster but one advertising a stage show…that could have played the Bijou in 1912. If you’re not familiar with our quest, you can go here and here and here.

I suggested that the mystery poster tucked into the corner of one shot in The Magnificent Ambersons is the Pathé release of 1912, The Cow-Boy Girls. Readers with long memories and no life of their own will recall that this question has bugged me since my earlier post in May. Last week my colleague Eric Hoyt suggested what the title might be, and some rummaging in various sources, particularly the invaluable Lantern…
  • The Fussbudget Report: An AMBERSONS solution

    16 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    DB here: Some readers may recall my post on The Magnificent Ambersons back in May. I argued that Welles built a sense of the irretrievable past into many aspects of the film’s narration. He used the voice-over commentary to evoke times gone by, but also ellipsis, offscreen action, constant recitation of memories, and other strategies. In addition, there were moments of cinephile nostalgia, including the iris shot at the end of the snow scene and the concluding credits of the actors slowly turning to face the audience, as in the manner of films of the 1910s. Then there were the movie…

    Alex Ross – The Rest is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century (2007) The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century is a voyage into the labyrinth of modern music, which remains an obscure world for most people. While paintings of Picasso and Jackson Pollock sell for a hundred million dollars or more, and lines from T. S. Eliot are quoted on the yearbook pages of alienated teenagers across the land, twentieth-century classical music still sends ripples of unease through audiences. At the same time, its influence can be felt everywhere. Atonal chords crop up in jazz.

    Taking whatever means necessary to achieve your life-long dreams is often an emotional struggle people are willing to take in order to realize their goals and desires. But not everyone truly has the talent they believe they have in order to succeed, which makes the seriousness at which they take themselves much more comical and intriguing. That’s certainly the case with the musical comedy-drama, ‘Frank,’ in which the main characters, who are in a band together, aren’t able to achieve their musical aspirations, as they’re not as talented as they believe.

    Title: 99 Homes Director: Ramin Bahrani Starring: Andrew Garfield, Michael Shannon, Laura Dern, Noah Lomax  Ramin Bahrani, defined by the late Roger Ebert as the director of the decade,  competes for the Golden Lion at the 71st Venice Film Festival, with ‘99 Homes,’ a story about a father who struggles to get back the house that his family was evicted from, by working for the greedy real estate broker who’s the source of his frustration. The story is very alluring to begin withm since it evokes ‘Faust’ and how wretchedness and the happiness of our loved ones can lead to…

    Karen Benardello
    30 Aug 2014 | 12:28 pm
    Stepping outside your comfort zone to truly embrace both new experiences and what you love most in life is the enthralling theme that not only pushes the actions of the lead character in the new independent horror film, ‘The Damned,’ but also the actor who portrays him. Versatile actor Peter Facinelli powerfully showcased the harrowing and realistic emotions and motivations of a protective father who’s desperate to take any means necessary to save his teenage daughter in the latest movie from director Victor Garcia. While ‘The Damned’ is the first horror film…

    29 Aug 2014 | 11:42 am
    Why God’s ideal job for us isn’t in one particular office. As a twentysomething in 2014, finding a job can be hard. Even if you spend every free moment you have formulating flawless résumés, writing tear-jerking cover letters and ironing your best suit to wrinkle-free perfection, you then have to fight your way through a sea of equally qualified applicants, endless interviews and cryptic emails. Then come the rejection letters. Or they don’t, more often—you just never hear back. Days turn into weeks turn into lost hope, and every well-intentioned parent and pet does his or her best…

    According to a devastating new U.N. report, nearly half of all Syrians have been displaced by the violence of the country’s ongoing civil war. As many as 6.5 million who have fled their homes are displaced within the country, and at least 3 million Syrians have left the country altogether. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said in a statement, "The Syrian crisis has become the biggest humanitarian emergency of our era, yet the world is failing to meet the needs of refugees and the countries hosting them.” The report, which is attempting to bring greater international awareness and…

  • Review: The Giver

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

    Dave Taylor
    8 Aug 2014 | 3:54 pm
    Michael Bay hired director Jonathan Liebesman and brought back the somewhat radioactive Megan Fox as the human lead in yet another remake of the amusing children’s tale Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. What’s Liebesman done before? Battle: Los Angeles (an incoherent mess) and Wrath of the Titans (a me-too Greek mythology flick). His lack of experience creating a polished film shows, and while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is true to the comic book origins of the tiny box turtles who grow up in the NY sewers to become smart-aleck ninjas, but it’s a dry exercise in how to string…
  • Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

    Dave Taylor
    31 Jul 2014 | 11:06 pm
    I really liked The Avengers, but there’s something inherently a bit dry about a group of self-important goody-goody characters. It’s the problem of Superman and Captain America (and yes, I know that Superman isn’t one of the Avengers. And never shall DC and Marvel overlap at the cineplex, alas). In fact, the only character who was any sort of relief from the tone was Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr), but his was a more abusive wit coming from a place of ego and hubris. Tedious, really, and Stark is my least favorite character in the entire Avengers squad. Enter the…
  • Review: Hercules

    Dave Taylor
    29 Jul 2014 | 2:46 pm
    I should start by clarifying which version of the oft-told Hercules story we’re talking about, because it’s not the animated feature from Disney and it’s most assuredly not the banal early 2014 The Legend of Hercules with Kellan Lutz in the title role. I’m talking about the summer release with the always popular muscleman Dwayne Johnson in the title role, as released jointly by Paramount and MGM. First the perhaps surprising news: I quite liked and enjoyed Hercules, finding it an unexpectedly deep story with a good cast and, of course, lots of great visual effects,…
  • Review: Lucy

    Dave Taylor
    24 Jul 2014 | 11:01 pm
    There’s a certain story arc that just about every Luc Besson film has in common, a theme likely inspired by Hitchcock, of the “everyman” caught up in events far beyond their understanding. Even the earliest Hitch works like The 29 Steps explore this theme to great effect. It works well because we then quickly identify with the protagonist and yearn to see them succeed and overcome the challenges that they encounter on their quest for the mythic happy ending. Besson, however, is in love with American action stunts and cinema by directors like Michael Bay (Transformers), so…

  • 'Rosewater' Trailer: Watch Jon Stewart's Emotional Directorial Debut

    Last year Jon Stewart took a three-month break from hosting The Daily Show to travel to Jordan and film his directorial debut (John Oliver took over hosting for two of those three months). Now a year later we have a trailer for the fruits of his labor. It's called Rosewater and it looks precisely like the kind of celebration of human endurance and journalistic integrity that you'd expect from the man behind The Daily Show. Adapted from the memoir Then They Came for Me, Rosewater is the unfortunate true story of a London journalist (played by Gael Garcia Bernal) who ended up…
  • 5 Reasons You Should See the Biopic 'Cantinflas'

    Sure, you know the names Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton... but is the name Cantinflas familiar? Perhaps not, but he was only the most famous comic to come from Mexico -- so famous, in fact, he was dubbed "the Charlie Chaplin of Mexico" by many. Born Mario Fortino Alfonso Moreno Reyes in 1911 to an impoverished family in Mexico City, he started out as a prizefighter and circus performer (adopting the stage moniker "Cantinflas") before developing a career in theater and film playing, like Chaplin, el pelado -- a poor everyman. His breakthrough came with Ahí…

Not unlike Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson, he sort of stepped away from that kind of thing to concentrate on more mainstream fare for much of the first decade of the 21 st century. Unlike Raimi and Jackson, however, de la Iglesia returned to his cult film roots like gangbusters with 2010's…

THE ART OF THE STEAL is at least as good/bad/kitschy as whatever's in the theaters right now, in our collective hangovers from late-summer junk season.Writer-director Jonathan Sobol's flick has the fate to share a title with a recent documentary about a contested art collection, though it's no lie that art masterworks unethically obtained (and, in a pulp-fiction way, art appreciation) is the fulcrum of Sobol's…

Long considered one of the "big three" of classical Japanese cinema (along with Yasujiro Ozu and Akira Kurosawa), Mizoguchi (1898-1956) directed over 80 films (silent and sound) in a career that spanned 34 years. He was a supreme visual stylist, and one of the foremost proponents of the long take and choreographed camera movement. His great theme was the exploitation of women, supposedly the result of childhood trauma…

    Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy has already become the highest-grossing film of 2014 (domestically) just one month into its theatrical run. Not only that, James Gunn’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe made a name for itself as a critics’ favorite, giving the property a one-two punch of commercial and critical appeal. As discussed on the Screen Rant Underground podcast, its success opened many doors for Marvel as they continue their shared universe for years to come.

  • What’s Next For Marvel’s ‘Blade’ Franchise?

    Rob Keyes

    If you asked Wesley Snipes years ago if he’d like to star in a fourth Blade movie, he’d say “yeah,” if the script was right. And by the ‘right script’ he’d mean one that doesn’t include secondary heroes taking his screen time away. That was one of the many issues the actor and production endured during the making of 2004′s Blade: Trinity – a film that put an end to the R-Rated Marvel character’s career on the big screen and saw the franchise’s worst critical slamming. The script was just one minor part of problems that…

From DAWN OF THE DEAD to BREAKING BAD, from ARMY OF DARKNESS to OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL, from HOSTEL to SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, his vivid and creative makeup effects work has brought the fantastic, the grotesque, and the sometimes-just-plain-realistic to a dazzling kaleidoscope of film and TV projects.

I had my concerns about The Giver, another, teen-oriented film from the Weinstein Company. After all, TWC’s previous effort in this arena was Vampire Academy, and that blatant mish-mosh of Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hunger Games, and whatever else has been luring adolescent females to the theaters didn’t go down too smoothly.

This is a more grounded treatment of the mythological warrior, closer in approach to GLADIATOR than JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS — although any film in which the hero can channel lightning through his sword can’t really lay much claim to historical accuracy (and all to the better in that regard, I say).

    In the world of movie poster collecting, title trumps everything. A mediocre half-sheet for Casablanca or a lobby card for The Wizard of Oz will sell for thousands whereas an exquisite piece of graphic design for an obscure Czech drama can be picked up for peanuts. For good reason of course: people want movie posters to remind them of the movies they love. But I am always endlessly impressed by the bottomless well of superb design and illustration that is out there for films that have been all but forgotten. As a random example, this week the French poster dealer Dominique Besson…

However, as Batman expert and West’s Family Guy co-star Ralph Garman explains, “Adam West became a huge star on television at a time where the stereotyping curse was in full force.” By 1970, the actor’s career came to a standstill, and he was forced to make hokey public appearances and perform dangerous stunts to provide for his family.You can…

Plus a couple of Picto-Skeds. I petered out a little at the end, but all in all, I was happy with my production throughout August. Speaking of biographies, the site already boasts a strong write-up about…

    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraIt’s Lee Tracy day on TCM’s Summer Under the Stars, Thursday, August 21. The subject of the following article, Blessed Event, plays at 10 pm EDT on TCM Thursday night. Other Lee Tracy movies that TCM is showing and that I’ve written about include Millionaires in Prison (1940 - 12:15 pm), The Half-Naked Truth (1932 - 3:45 pm) and Clear All Wires! (1933 -4:30 am).

  • Herbert Marshall, Biography of the Trouble in Paradise Star

    16 Aug 2014 | 1:57 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraIf you raise your voice when discussing Trouble in Paradise (1932) then you’re likely arguing Kay Francis versus Miriam Hopkins, but never Herbert Marshall. Marshall’s gentleman thief Gaston Monescu is the heart of that Ernst Lubitsch classic every bit as much as the director’s famed touch. Marshall’s own imprint is lighter, call it less intrusive, than Lubitsch's in what I've come to regard as the actor's signature role. Above: Marshall with Miriam Hopkins in Trouble in Paradise. Just prior to Trouble in Paradise…

    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraI wasn't sure I'd be able to cobble together a Picto-Sked for Charlie Chaplin day. I thought some of the early movies that TCM is playing on Thursday might be hard to find ads to represent them. Piece of cake. A King in New York (1957) turned out to the toughest find since it wasn't released in the U.S. until the early 1970s. The Picto-Sked below gathers the entire August 14, 2014 schedule of Charlie Chaplin movies playing on TCM and illustrates each with an actual period newspaper advertisement to give a little extra…

    Arby’s has a secret menu item (meaning it’s not on the official menu but you can request it and they’ll make it for you) called the Meat Mountain. It’s a truly formidable tower of meats, and it all started because of this promotional photo: Arby’s created that poster to remind consumers that the chain sells plenty of meats besides its famous roast beef. This marketing strategy worked, apparently, because people started coming in asking if they could order that entire stack o’ meats. And the Meat Mountain was born. Here’s what the $10 monstrosity-on-a-bun includes: - 2 chicken…

One trip to the hospital and an X-ray later, doctors discover that under the skin, Karen’s neck lump is actually a neck fetus—the fetus, it turns out, of an evil Native American shaman named Misquamacus.

  • Miltos Yerolemou (Game Of Throne’s Syrio Forel) Joins ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

    1 Sep 2014 | 11:15 am
    According to a new report, Miltos Yerolemou, perhaps best known for his role as Syrio Forel in ‘Game of Thrones,’ has joined the cast of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII.’ Syrio Forel is a master sword-fighter and instructor hired by Eddard Stark to train Arya Stark in the series, and Yerolemou has played several other parts which involve sword fighting during his career. With that in mind, I think it’s safe to assume he may get up to some lightsabre-related shenanigans in the film. He joins his fellow ‘Game of Thrones’ alumni Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of…

Having recently appeared in The Expendables 3, Snipes is keen to reestablish his action credentials, even if at 51 years of age, he would certainly be on the older end of the superhero spectrum. "I’d love to get back in the…
  • New TV spot lands for Big Hero 6: watch now

    31 Aug 2014 | 11:42 pm
    Big Hero 6 has released a new TV spot to coincide with the end of the school holidays, in which cuddly robot Baymax offers a word of comfort to returning pupils (and teachers) everywhere. “You will be alright,” intones the robot, soothingly. “There, there”. We’d imagine there are more than a few people who could do with hearing that this week! Meanwhile, there are a couple of new snippets of footage in the ultra-brief spot, including Baymax’s adorable attempts to get to grips with a football… Take a look at the new spot, below… The new film will follow the adventures of teen…
  • Liam Neeson would reprise Ra’s al Ghul role “in a heartbeat”

    31 Aug 2014 | 11:26 pm
    Liam Neeson has been discussing the part of Ra’s al Ghul, newly announced as the primary villain in the next series of Arrow, and would be open to reprising the role should the chance come his way. No official casting has been announced as yet, but when Neeson was asked by MTV whether he would consider it, the star was unequivocal in his enthusiasm… “No, I haven't, I haven't at all,” said Neeson, when asked whether he had been contacted by the show. “I would, in a heartbeat, if it came my way, yeah, very much so.” And even if the call doesn’t come, Neeson still has some advice…

    Aardman Animation has released a new trailer for Shaun The Sheep, in which the titular critter finds himself amongst the bright lights of the big city. Shaun and the rest of the flock have gone walkabouts from their farm, you see, only to discover that city living is a lot scarier than they might have imagined. And when the hard-ass warden of the city’s animal shelter gets wind of the flock’s presence, it isn’t long before Shaun and co. find themselves in real danger. Take a look at the new trailer, below… While this latest trailer doesn’t go too deep into the plot beyond the basic…
  • Charlie Hunnam to star in Escape From New York remake?

    31 Aug 2014 | 10:53 pm
    We haven’t heard anything about the proposed Escape From New York remake for a little while, but that could be about to change in the wake of some new casting rumours. According to Starlog, Silver Pictures and StudioCanal are looking to secure a leading man to play Snake Plissken, with Charlie Hunnam currently sitting pretty at the top of their list. Hunnam is reportedly the number one choice, although Jon Bernthal and Dan Stevens are also being considered as alternatives, given that Hunnam’s schedule could potentially pose a problem. Meanwhile, the report claims that this new version of…

    2014 marks the 10-year anniversary of one of Outdoor Movies’ largest and most prestigious events, the Traverse City Film Festival.

We can never fully rely on electronics, so it’s best to have the proper spare parts so you never miss a show. When Outdoor Movies handles event production, we make sure to bring a back up for every piece of equipment at the site. Our recommendation is to have an extra projector, blower, speaker and various cables. It is best to have these ready to go, to make for seamless transitions in the case of technical malfunctions.

Proper anchor points are instrumental to the durability of your screen and safety of anyone who may come in to contact with it.  Whether it be the people setting up the screen or you’re audience members, misplaced stakes or ballasts can be incredibly dangerous.

    2014′s summer movie offerings are just getting their start, so bring out the critiques! Disney’s entry continues their recent tradition of taking a time-honored classic animated feature and turning it into a live-action/CGI amalgamation that is sure to intrigue the millions who grew up with the original film. Maleficent casts Angelina Jolie as the title villain, known to just about every man, woman and child as the evil sorceress who curses Sleeping Beauty, transforms into a green-fire breathing dragon and is ultimately defeated by Prince Philip. But that’s not what happens…
  • Edge of Tomorrow

    Several times now, I’ve heard Edge of Tomorrow described as the action version of Groundhog Day.  While that might be a good way to describe the movie quickly to someone who hasn’t heard of it, it does a disservice to an original and exciting movie.  For me, Edge of Tomorrow is so far the best movie of the summer and it deserves more careful consideration than a comparison to a 20-year old comedy. I am generally not a big fan of Tom Cruise, and he’s all over the advertising for this movie.  He always seems smug and too cool in his roles.  This time around, he’s…

    So if you haven’t heard yet, Martin Scorsese is making a bipoic about the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band on earth, The Ramones.  Although there is no news  on production or release dates, the possibilities alone excites us. Really, if a movie were made about The Ramones, we’d want it to be directed by the great Martin Scorsese. Then we started thinking, who would Scorsese cast? Our excitement soon turned into horror as we imagined Martin Scorses’s favorite muse, Leonardo DiCaprio, acting in a role as Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee or Tommy…or any part, for that matter.  Not to say that…

    Film director David Lynch has directed a video for the debut of Christian Louboutin’s line of $50 nail polishes, and it’s just as weird as we thought it would be. The video, which looks like a surreal Salvador Dali painting coming to life, boasts a signature Louboutin stiletto that transforms into the top of a nail lacquer bottle. There are images of white castles made of weapon-like stilettos spikes, trippy nail polish bottles floating from the sky and, of course, abrupt visions of fingernails that are painted in the classic red Louboutin polish.  The 51-second video is wonderful,…

    18 Jul 2014 | 8:03 am

The film tells a story of a young boy dealing with a fractured family and the angst of adolescence over the course of twelve years, from age 6 to age 18. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” is sweeping and sporadic, jumping from year to year sometimes in a blur; much like the act of growing up itself. “Boyhood” tells the story of the evolution of Mason, Jr (Ellar Coltrane) over a 12 year period, starting from age 6 and going on until he hits 18. The film was shot over a 12…

    Comic book movies never get their due at awards shows. While some argue that there's a bias against such films, I counter that there's never been a comic book movie good enough to compete alongside your average awards darlings. Until now. "Guardians of the Galaxy" has the cachet, the industry support and the production values to merit top kudos from the Oscars. One of the first steps on the road to Oscardom is breaking through at the Golden Globes, and "Guardians" has a leg up there on the competition because there's a whole slew of categories just waiting to be filled out: the comedy/musical…

  • Guardians of the Galaxy

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

    21 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    Self-professed voyeur, Ben, captures his life on camera, as do all his friends. He admits he’s hacked into his friend’s videos and even CCTV systems and cobbles together a series of fragmented vignettes portraying the demons he and his friends harbor. Ben also visits a therapist who objects to Ben filming their session, however, but he does it anyway. It becomes clear that Ben, and perhaps even his friends, want to be the stars of their own films. The final result reveals how these characters’ lives have become interwoven into a thematic narrative.
  • Boyhood

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

    13 Aug 2014 | 9:06 pm
    The shouting matches and the vociferous activism of conspiracy theorists tend to fall on deaf ears. It’s not that they are wrong; it’s that their ideas and links are so far-fetched or conflicting that they themselves appear legitimately crazy. The Conspiracy takes all those crack-pot theories and myths of American secret societies and New World Orders and melds them into a faux-documentary that is suspenseful, captivating, and even somewhat revelatory, whether you truly buy into these theories or just find them slightly entertaining.

  • Let’s Be Cops – a Drunken Frat Boy Comedy

    Chris D'souza
    22 Aug 2014 | 11:14 am
    Some of the best comedies ever made have been based on characters working in law enforcement. Hot Fuzz, Beverly Hill Cops and Police Academy are a few of the instant classics that are excellent examples of what a cop movie should be all about. On the other hand, Let’s Be Cops is a disastrous attempt at recreating that humor. Even though it tries to be like those classics, it falls flat. The story revolves around Ryan (Jake Johnson) and Justin (Damon Wayans). Just like any friends, they like to drink and go out for karaoke. However, they are unhappy at being unable to make it big in LA.

    Guardians of the Galaxy is the highly anticipated blockbuster to be released this month. The film has been appreciated by critics and fans alike. The movie is an extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following in the footsteps Joss Whedon’s The Avengers and is to be released on the 1st of August with a budget of $170 million. The movie begins with Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) looking to steal a mysterious orb on an abandoned planet. The orb possesses unimaginable power. Star-Lord is targeted by a dangerous war criminal named Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) along with his former partner…

    Garden State was actor-director Zack Braff’s first feature, and after a 10-year gap comes his crowd-funded second feature Wish I Was Here. The movie is co-written by Zach with his brother Adam. When the film was stuck in a rut because of funding issues, Braff turned to his fan base and launched a campaign on Kickstarter. It took all of 48 hours for the campaign to reach its goal and Zach Braff had the money he needed to make his movie the way he wants. The onetime star of the popular TV series Scrubs, Braff plays an LA-based dad and husband, Aidan Bloom, who fails to fulfill his dream…
  • Video Games: a Movie That Takes Gaming Fans on a Trip Down Memory Lane

    15 Aug 2014 | 2:29 pm
    ‘Video Games: the Movie’ brings a flashback of gaming memories. It is a documentary of the origins of the gaming industry. From games of the SEGA and Nintendo to modern consoles like Xbox and Playstation, the movie is truly a nostalgic treat. Most of the film spins back and forth between a 3D timeline of developments in the gaming industry and checks off the arrival of new companies, consoles, and games. From the introduction of gaming, where games like Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, Tomb Raider, Doom, and Myst were all the rage, and then on to various computer…

    LLCoolK in actionDespite how much I have professed my love for Neon Genesis Evangelion, I have still been quite reticent to do a full-dive into the world of anime.  Oh sure, I've watched a few episodes of the silly shows on Netflix like Rosario + Vampire and Fairy Tale (for clarification, both were funny and entertaining), but something has always been holding me back from getting completely into anime.Maybe it's because I don't particularly like reading subtitles, so all anime I watch will be English-dubbed.  And RIGHT there, I just lost pretty much everyone.  Or maybe…
  • Howl's Moving Castle (2004) - Review

    Bobby Brake
    5 Jul 2014 | 10:01 am
    Howl's Moving Castle is an animated film directed by the acclaimed Hayao Miyazaki, based off of a novel of the same name.  Not being an expert of anime (my knowledge pretty much extends to Evangelion and Evangelion alone), I'm not sure how this fits into his filmography.  From what I've read, this isn't one of his better films.  I can't speak for this, as the only other Miyazaki film I've seen at the time of writing this is Spirited Away (also a great movie).  But what I can speak for is that both Spirited and this film are some of the most beautifully nuanced and…

    You have something on your face.Possession movies are kind of done.  I mean, after The Exorcist... where can you possibly go?  I guess my question has already been answered: The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Last Exorcism, Paranormal Activity, The Conjuring, etc.  With a few exceptions (The Conjuring being a major one), most possession films feel very samey and played out.  Is The Possession (nice title, guys) one of those exceptions?Not quite.  Almost.Right away, the movie hits you hard with a cold open, and you can tell that it's something kind of different.  The…

    You know those movies that seem like they're designed solely to grate on your nerves?  This is one of those movies for me.  Following in the wake of the incredibly successful Glee, Pitch Perfect attempts to songify college in the same way that Glee songifies high school.Okay, Glee sucks.  There, I said it.  Not a controversial opinion by this point, but it still needs to be said.  So how do you think this fares?  Hint: not too well.  This movie is obnoxious through and through.Good night, everyone!Really?  You need more?Anna Kendrick, you get out of…

    12 Jun 2014 | 10:37 am
    The X-Men franchise has had a hell of a bunch of ups and downs.  The first two installments hold up pretty well and are still entertaining, if slightly dated.  The third film was never good and certainly isn't now.  After that, the series got weird and started going in a bunch of different directions, with varying results.  X-Men Origins: Wolverine was hilariously bad, X-Men First Class was also pretty lackluster (suffering from a lot of the same goofiness that Origins did), but the followup sequel to Origins, simply titled The Wolverine, was a marked improvement.  So…

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 132 The Passion of the Christ

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

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

    27 Jul 2014 | 9:05 pm
    The third and final review of the John Carpenter/Kurt Russell trilogy, this week we discuss Escape from New York. Mark's virgin viewing coupled with Matt's nostalgia result in contrary opinions. Does Escape from New York really not work? Does its unique premise and the quintessential movie anti-hero Snake Plissken override some of its more 2D performances? It's hard to say. But one could argue if it really matters in the end. One thing we do learn watching Escape, is that the rumors of Snake Plissken's premature demise may have been greatly exaggerated.Download: 130 Escape from New York

    20 Jul 2014 | 9:46 pm
    Let's turn this up to 11! Matt and Mark have come to the realization that it's a challenge to review comedies properly, and Spinal Tap is no different. But we give it a go, and as such, end up rambling quite a bit. Perhaps more tangential than usually, on this podcast we try to probe the cliched and spoof-worthy realm of heavy metal pop music, a comedy rich landscape. Spinal Tap holds a mirror up to the self-indulgent adolescent rocker, and no matter how close it hits to home, bands to this day continue to indulge the silliness. Just as rock will never die, neither will Spinal…

    13 Jul 2014 | 2:50 pm
     Does Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket romanticize war? Is it possible to make a war movie that doesn't? An interesting two-part film, Kubrick builds a loose narrative from vignette's that don't necessarily speak to one overriding theme. But one doesn't watch FMJ to hammer home the "war is bad" narrative, you watch it for its dark humor, you watch it for its quips, character sketches, and dialogue, and you watch it because its evocative.

    Also known as Remnants, Aftermath finds a group of survivors attempting to make it through a nuclear apocalypse without succumbing to the effects of radiation poisoning or being killed by wandering, mentally unstable radiation victims. Its setup is incredibly familiar, and the moments of dread are at first clouded by the expectation that a zombie will come stumbling out of the fallout. But as the film continues, it begins to delve deeper into the psyches of those survivors who hole up in a basement for nearly a month, hoping that the government will come to save them.

  • The worst film I ever saw… Inbred.

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

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

Five of them were made and four of them were scheduled to roll out that year. Three were major theatrical releases (DeepStar Six, Leviathan, The Abyss) while the remaining two (The Rift, Lords Of The Deep) were straight-to-video and/or cable.

In the US it became Blood Glacier for it’s home video release and it’s a commendable cautionary eco-horror tale that homages John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982). It takes place in the German Alps as this station on the mountain, inhabited by a general technician, his dog and three climatologists, who are studying the effects of global warming on the local glaciers, is attacked by a pissed off Mother…

The only one I ever saw was The Player (1992), but what got me to want to review Clark Gregg’s Trust Me was the fact that Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell were in it. I’m only familiar with Gregg from his Marvel movies appearance; never heard of him until I saw him in Iron Man (2008), and I really didn’t start taking interest in him until he took center stage in that Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D series. He then became one of those actors I just like to watch. Sam Rockwell I’ve…

Their first test of this was with last year’s Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, where Flash was the…

According to THR, Tommy Lee Jones will play Dr. Frank, a neuroscientist who transplants the CIA operative’s memories. The versatile actor will next…

  • Found (2014) Review

    1 Sep 2014 | 12:51 pm
    This is a payoff and a half and it didnt cost much of anything to assemble thats visibly detectable. And its okay. Weve got that rare micro that makes us want more a film that feels as though it was made by hardcore fans for hardcore fans. And Schirmer can rest easy knowing that hes given the fanatics one of the years most impressive. Found is 2014s The Battery and if youve seen The Battery you know that is not only a tremendous compliment you also know something memorable waits on the horizon.
  • Leprechaun Origins (2014) Review

    31 Aug 2014 | 9:47 am
    The last few years weve seen WWE Studios take a turn for the better. Theyve looked like a company determined to deliver the best product that they possibly can. Oculus was awesome. No One Lives and The Call were both solid movies. Leprechaun Origins is backwards on all levels. Its a film that cant be enjoyed because its not even mindful enough of its own content to generate some dumb laughs. At least the old Leprechaun movies knew they couldnt take themselves seriously. We at least had that light hearted reprieve of things. Leprechaun Origins seems to actually believe its a film to be taken…

  • Underworld Being Rebooted... Already

    29 Aug 2014 | 9:12 am
    As a serious fan of the franchise (I can even watch that clunker Underworld Awakening if Ive got a few brewskies in me) this is the kind of news Im completely opposed to. I know this story well and I dont need to be retold a tale that today is hardly over a decade old. My memory is bad but it isnt that bad. Does that matter to Lakeshore No. Rather than spending the time money and energy to create a new piece of an already epic tale (something theyd planned with the previously discussed Underworld Next Generation) well be afforded the far less imaginative design of a retelling of the same…

    Raquel Stecher
    1 Sep 2014 | 6:35 am
    Joan Crawford, Knitting"I took my knitting along so I could keep my hands busy, because I was so nervous."  Joan CrawfordAs any knitter will tell you, there is a lot of comfort to be found in the repetitive motions of a pair of knitting needles and some yarn as you knit and purl your way through a pattern. Joan Crawford would often be found on film sets knitting as she waited for her call. It calmed her nerves and kept her distracted during down times. Rumor has it, Crawford was temporarily kicked off the set of The Women (1939) by George Cukor for purposefully annoying Norma Shearer…

    Lauren Bacall (1924-2014)When I heard the news about Lauren Bacall's death, I didn't want to believe it. One of the things I always admired about Bacall was her resiliency. Surely she could survive death rumors! Alas, it was then confirmed by the Bogart estate that Bacall passed away yesterday. Lauren Bacall was absolutely stunning. She was a talented actress who was as effective at being sultry as she was being serious or silly. She had wonderful range and I admire her for embracing old age when many other actresses were terrified of it.Her love affair and marriage to Humphrey Bogart is the…

  • Blu-ray Review: Without Warning (1980, Dir, Greydon Clark)

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

    Shawn Francis
    25 Aug 2014 | 5:08 pm
    (Warning! Spoilers Contained Within!) “Say, ‘Aaaaah,’ motherfucker!” 1989 was the year of the underwater monster movie. Five of them were made and four of them were scheduled to roll out that year. Three were major theatrical releases (DeepStar Six, Leviathan, The Abyss) while the remaining two (The Rift, Lords Of The Deep) were straight-to-video and/or cable. I saw all of them but Lords Of The Deep. I believe I saw The Rift (1990, aka Endless Descent) in 1991 on cable, but I distinctly remember reading the Fangoria article in 1989, where they acknowledged DeepStar Six…
  • DVD Review: Blood Glacier (2013, Dir, Marvin Kren)

    Shawn Francis
    21 Aug 2014 | 12:30 pm
    I heard about this Austrian flick last year when it was called, The Station. Saw the trailer and thought, ‘yup, I’ll need to see this at some point.’  That point has now arrived. In the US it became Blood Glacier for it’s home video release and it’s a commendable cautionary eco-horror tale that homages John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982). It takes place in the German Alps as this station on the mountain, inhabited by a general technician, his dog and three climatologists, who are studying the effects of global warming on the local glaciers, is attacked by a pissed off Mother…
  • DVD Review: Trust Me (2013, Dir, Clark Gregg)

    Shawn Francis
    19 Aug 2014 | 4:29 pm
    (Warning! This Review May Contain Spoilers!) I don’t particularly like movies about the inner workings of Hollywood. The only one I ever saw was The Player (1992), but what got me to want to review Clark Gregg’s Trust Me was the fact that Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell were in it. I’m only familiar with Gregg from his Marvel movies appearance; never heard of him until I saw him in Iron Man (2008), and I really didn’t start taking interest in him until he took center stage in that Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D series. He then became one of those actors I just like to watch. Sam Rockwell I’ve…

     ”I’m here, bitches! And I got favors for everybody” —-Joker I understand why DC always does animated movies based only on Batman, Superman and the Justice League; plain and simple, they sell, and apparently they learned that when their solo Wonder Woman movie did not sell well, so their only recourse now, if they want to do standalone flicks based on characters outside of Bats, Supes and their iconic league, is to have them in the movie as supporting characters. Their first test of this was with last year’s Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, where Flash was the…

  • My Sassy Girl (2001, Kwak Jae-young), the director’s cut

    Andrew Wickliffe
    31 Aug 2014 | 8:54 pm
    The most important action in My Sassy Girl takes place off screen–the film takes place over a few years (though the main action is over three and a half months), with listless Cha Tae-hyun home from compulsory national service and back in school and having no idea what to do with his life. Enter Jun Ji-hyun's mystery girl, who doesn't just give Cha a love interest, but often provides him with someone to care for (she can't drink, but does) and someone to give him an energy boost. Director Kwak never goes into either characters' home life too much, but both are still…
  • The Last of the Mohicans (1992, Michael Mann)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    30 Aug 2014 | 8:15 pm
    One of the particularly amazing parts of The Last of the Mohicans is how quietly director Mann lays out big pieces of the film. The relationship between Daniel Day-Lewis, Russell Means and Eric Schweig–Day-Lewis as adopted son to Means and adopted brother to Schweig–is complex and moving and Mann spends almost no time establishing it in dialogue. Certainly not the heavy lifting. The heavy lifting is the choreography of how the men hunt together in the first scene. Later, when they're battling the French or their Native American allies, their movements show the relationship.
  • The Old Dark House (1932, James Whale)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    The Old Dark House is a strange film about strange people doing strange things. Director Whale and screenwriter Benn W. Levy rarely let the film get a set tone–unless one counts the consistent mix of comedy and horror. It’s not straight comedy; the comic elements tend to be either absurdly strange or pedestrian. Husband and wife Raymond Massey and Gloria Stuart bickering over his driving until the storm becomes too dangerous for an argument, for example. Whale goes for peculiar horror elements–relying on his cast to be creepy enough in their performances sometimes, but other…
  • Old Stock (2012, James Genn)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    23 Aug 2014 | 4:09 pm
    The last scene of Old Stock doesn't exactly overshadow the rest of the film, but it certainly sets it apart. It's one of the more subtle finishes to a film. Without giving the viewer any guidance, director Genn and writer Dane Clark close the picture with a silent reference to a line in the dialogue. Hopefully the viewer gets it, because it's a fantastic pay-off. The film concerns Noah Reid, the Stock of the title, who ends up hiding out in a retirement community (at the ripe old age of twenty) with his grandfather (Danny Wells), after an initially vague personal tragedy. The…
  • Liberty Heights (1999, Barry Levinson)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    20 Aug 2014 | 9:24 pm
    Liberty Heights is about protagonist Ben Foster's last year in high school. Levinson never puts it in such simple terms because the film is about quiet, deliberate, but perceivable life events. Every moment in the film's memorable because Levinson is going through these people's memorable moments of the year. Of course, he never forecasts the film will take place over a year. Heights is an epical story, lyrically told. Levinson splits the film primarily between Foster and Adrien Brody, as his older brother. But Joe Mantegna, as their father, and Orlando Jones, as…

    But after becoming sidetracked with throwaway grindhouse pastiches and 3D kids films, it has taken Rodriguez nine years to get around to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. In the intervening years, hype for a sequel has all but dried up completely and the green-screen technology, that helped make the first film such a fresh and exciting project, has become commonplace. There's a distinct feeling that the window for a sequel has passed us by but nonetheless we have A Dame to Kill For, a serviceable if slightly disappointing follow-up. A Dame to Kill For takes a similar structure to the first film,…

It’s a creepy, claustrophobic destination for most anyone. He’s uninterested in the macabre, and he’s 6’4”. It was a tight fit. I thought of him frequently during As Above, So Below because, if there’s one thing the film does effectively, it is tap your claustrophobic dread. Scarlett, an Indiana Jones type, believes a stone that A) turns any metal into gold, and B) grants eternal life, is hidden beneath Paris. She lures a…

      Ivory Tower by George Wolf   Enough about your school’s football team. Do you have a climbing wall? Swimming pool for the luxury dorm? If not, then your school is just not keeping up with the competitive college atmosphere illustrated in Ivory Tower, an effective documentary on the skyrocketing cost of higher education. Utilizing interviews, archival footage and statistical graphics, writer/director Andrew Rossi does a masterful job illustrating how alarming the situation has become, and why. He hits you early with some sobering numbers. Since 1978, college tuition has…
  • Late August Man

    27 Aug 2014 | 7:32 am
    The November Man by Hope Madden Somehow, it’s easy to lower your expectations in August, and a film that would seem stale and dated in, say, May or even November, can feel almost like a relief. The November Man is one of those movies. Its lack of digital wizardry – relying, as it does, on old fashioned practical effects – feels like a welcome respite from the summer’s FX bombast. And though this agent-thinks-he’s-out-but-gets-pulled-back-in tale brings very little new to the table, at least it isn’t If I Stay. Or Sin City 2. Or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Oh, August. At…
  • A Fresh Take on History For Your Queue

    Who’s in the mood for a couple of fascinating historical dramas, the kind that make you rethink your history lessons? Because Belle, releases to DVD today, and it’s the fact-based tale of a bi-racial girl raised by her aristocratic grandparents in 18th Century England. Well told and perfectly cast, with the always flawless Tom Wilkinson playing the family patriarch and a wondrous break out turn by Gugu Mbath-Raw in the lead, the film draws parallels you never knew existed between past and present. If you’re looking for a little wilder, true ish (or at least rumored to be true) story…

    This movie got me at “Anarchy”. The “New Founding Fathers” has a strict, totalitarian rule over America. With the 28th constitutional amendment, they created the Purge, which is an annual event where for 12 hours, all forms of crime including murder becomes legal, and all services such as hospitals and law enforcement are temporarily shut down. It is believed that the Purge is a form of “

    Just when I thought I’m already tired of found-footage films. The ancient wonders of the world have long cursed explorers who've dared to uncover their secrets.

Admittedly, I loved the action in the first Rurouni Kenshin movie much more than its plot, although it was already enough to get me excited for the sequel. When I saw the Kyoto Inferno earlier this week, I can

Thing is, just as how convinced they were that the output would be sexy and porn-worthy, the final product just showed how horrible they looked in bed. So they did the right thing to do and destroyed the video

  • Night Moves

    Eli Andersen
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:55 am
    With a gradual build and little to nothing in the way of sudden movements, Kelly Reichardt has quietly announced herself as one of the best filmmakers living today. Capturing the fringes of society with hypnotic grace and a confidence in subtlety that demands close attention, she has created a small but remarkably strong body of work that is uniform in its quality. Reichardt continues to impress with Night Moves, her latest and most conventional film to date. It seems almost perverse that the midpoint of Reichardt’s new film is marked by something as crass and undignified as an explosion.

One of the most impoverished areas in the United States, Pine Ridge is both monument to a Native American past riddled with governmental injustice and home to a generation of young men and women whose cultural identity is slipping further and further away. With an emergent gang culture and prospective adulthood defined by alcoholism and drug addiction, Anna Eborn’s…

  • Suits starring Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams & Gina Torres: A Witty, Fun & Addictive Legal Dramedy Series

    23 Aug 2014 | 8:11 am
    Gabriel Macht (Harvey) and Patrick J. Adams   (Mike). Image via Premise Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is the star attorney at Pearson Hardman. He’s great-looking, very smart, witty, confident, and to top all, he is the best closer in town. He can win in court, but he mostly doesn’t even let cases go that far. Unsurprisingly, he’s about to become a senior partner. Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is a different kind of genius. He has a photographic memory: once he reads something, he doesn’t even forget a comma from it. He’s street smart too: he’d be a great lawyer.

    Image via I’m a huge fan of writer/director Nancy Meyers. It started with What Women Want (starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt), a blast of a romantic comedy with fantasy elements. It’s one of my favorite romantic comedies of all time, though if I had to talk percentages that movie is 80% hilarity and 20% romance. Something’s Gotta Give is a bit more romantic, though the balance is probably more 60% comedy and 40% romance. It’s safe to call Meyers a superstar when it comes to romcom writer/directors. She writes great stories, directs while remaining honest to her…

Mel Gibson makes a fantastic return, showing that he’s more than capable of carrying a big role, in a serious film. Snipes slipped back into the action hero role like a glove, and made me realize just how much I’d missed him from this genre.

Like most readers of this blog remember I really hated Twilight. I guess from this point my expectations were not really high for this film, only after a couple of friends of my asked me if I saw Divergent? My immediate reaction was no, why would I watch it.

    From the mind of the Mexican auteur, Alejandro G Inarritu, comes the poster for Birdman; a very different spin on a superhero movie. The bold, cartoonish design immediately grabbed me as I was scrolling through mundane poster after mundane poster on IMDB. It's also nice to see Keaton continue his resurgence after his entertaining turns in both Need for Speed and RoboCop earlier in the year. In the lead roleKeaton is Riggan Thomson; a former movie superhero who is struggling to stay relevant in a fast-moving industry that's quickly forgetting him. In the past Inarritu has given us deeply…

    This is the sinister US theatrical poster for Daniel Radcliffe's upcoming horror/fantasy, Horns. At least three Horns posters have now been released but with its awesome title art and minimalism, this one has cemented itself as Poster of the Week. It's also interesting to note the placement of Daniel Radcliffe's name. The designers could've easily plastered it along the top to ensure audiences are aware of his involvement but the subtle placement allows the movie to stand on its own merits.A far cry from the family-friendly world of Harry Potter, Horns sees Daniel Radcliffe under the tutelage…

    Marvel's Daredevil will be the very first time the Marvel Cinematic Universe will delve into the gritty world of gangs and kingpins. Well the star villain of the series Vincent D'Onofrio recently spoke with Men's Journal about his role as the iconic villain Kingpin and also drawing inspiration from Frank Miller's run on the character. Lastly, he teases once again about Marvel's bigger plans for not just Daredevil but Kingpin crossing over to the larger universe we see on film:Now that I have you in a good mood, let’s talk about Daredevil.Filming has been great. I can’t really talk about…
  • The Russo Brothers Talk Scrapped "Hawkeye" Role for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

    1 Sep 2014 | 12:36 pm
    As we all know by now, Hawkeye was supposed to be in the lineup for Captain America: The Winter Soldier but was later written out leaving questions for fans. Now, The Russo Brothers have come forward giving details as to why he was cut and how much impact he would have on the final cut of the film."We had great stuff for him actually in the film," "He had a couple of really cool scenes in the movie. It’s a big movie as it is, so it certainly helped that it’s not in there. I think it would increase the running time by about 10 or 15 minutes if they were in the movie, just because you…

    Total Film recently sat down with longtime Parks & Rec star Aubrey Plaza to talk about her roles in other nerd projects like Scott Pilgrim vs the World. They then switched their focus to talk about how her Parks & Rec Chris Pratt was entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe in their newest film Guardians of the Galaxy. But then asked her if she would ever be in a superhero movie like maybe even as Catwoman opposite Ben Affleck in the upcoming reboot:"I would fucking die to do something like that. There's something so sexy and badass about Catwoman. I just think it's the ultimate female.

  • The Keeper of Lost Causes

    Alex Chafey
    31 Aug 2014 | 3:30 am
    Following an incident which left his partner hospitalised, no-nonsence cop Carl (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is being marginalised on the force. With no-one left who will work with him, he is sent to the basement to look over 20 years of old cases and close the files. But when the loose ends in a case don’t tie up, he and his new partner Assad (Fares Fares) make further investigations, against the wishes of their superiors. While this sounds like fairly bog-standard crime thriller material, The Keeper of Lost Causes is the best example of the genre in some time. The brooding, uncompromising,…
  • Hide Your Smiling Faces

    Dan Meier
    30 Aug 2014 | 9:26 am
    It’s impossible to avoid allusions to the numerous foregoers to Hide Your Smiling Faces, an American indie about a group of boys who find a dead body by a River’s Edge, face down in the Mud, only to realise that it’s the body of their friend. Stand By Me. There’s nothing new about this new drama, which quickly runs out of coming-of-age stories to repeat and then just has to repeat itself. It’s written, directed and edited by Daniel Patrick Carbone, which sounds impressive until you realise that there was no writing or editing involved. In terms of direction,…
  • Lucy

    30 Aug 2014 | 8:11 am
    Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is an average young woman on holiday in China, but when her boyfriend of one week (Pilou Asbæk) gets her involved in drug trafficking a strange new substance, she ends up unlocking her whole brain (as opposed to the widely-debunked myth that we only use 10%), and through it develops incredible superpowers. If you think this sounds like the same premise as Limitless, that’s because it is, but I haven’t seen Limitless, so can’t really compare. But if it’s as empty as Lucy I don’t want to. From very early in the film she develops the…
  • Rocky III

    25 Aug 2014 | 9:10 am
    Sly Stallone is back as writer, director and star in this 1982 sequel, which sees Rocky Balboa facing his strongest opponent yet: Clubber Lang, played by Mr. T, of BBC Three’s World’s Craziest Fools.  Rocky III, which is Roman for Rocky 3, follows exactly the same template as its predecessors: Rocky turns his back on boxing (for good this time), gets pulled back in, crisis in confidence, someone makes a speech, training montage, fight, and so on. This makes the movie too predictable, but no less entertaining. These films are so fluent in the language of the sports movie that…

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:13 am
    Following his survival through a whole match against legendary champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers), Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) is struggling to ride the wave of success. With promises of huge sums of money from advertising contracts, he splashes out on his new wife Adrian. But when he turns out to be a less-than competent media performer the money dries up. Meanwhile the champ wants a rematch, and will stop at nothing for Balboa’s blood… Stallone’s wise decision to end Rocky without an outright victory pays dividends here as Balboa maintains the underdog status that made…

  • Movie Review: Sin City: A Dame to Kill for (2014) – They Didn’t Mess with a Winning Formula

    1 Sep 2014 | 11:28 pm
    A lot of my friends don’t understand my fascination with this movie franchise. Whenever I talk Sin City, they think I’m talking about that stupid sitcom with Michael J. Fox. But I’m not. I’m talking the dark, multiple plotlines seamlessly interwoven, star studded quirky, crazy masterpiece that is Sin City. So on hearing that a sequel was coming out, I was one of the first in line to check it out. There are far too many storylines to summarize here, but expect to see a few favorites from the first film, like Marv (Mickey Rourke) Jessica Alba (as a significantly more edgy Nancy) and…
  • Movie Review: If I Stay (2014) – Too much sap, Too much symbolism and Too much melodrama

    31 Aug 2014 | 3:05 am
    If I Stay is the much anticipated film attempt at the best selling book of the same name. Right now, it’s rocking number 3 at the box office because let’s be honest, people love movies where young people might die. The movie starts out with Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz), who initially thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Jamie Blackley). Enter a snowy Oregon night and an inattentive driver and suddenly, Mia is in a coma. For one day, she is trapped…
  • Steve Carell To Star In New Untitled Acme Movie, Inspired By Looney Tunes Cartoons

    Zachary Rowell
    29 Aug 2014 | 7:03 am
    The Acme “Looney Tunes” project that has been in the works since 2010 has found some new momentum. Not only is the powerful writing duo of Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (Thor, X-Men: First Class) on-board, but Steve Carell is now attached to the project. He will reunite with Crazy Stupid Love directors, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, to bring the Looney Tunes spin-off to life. And a spin-off is exactly what this film will be. The Hollywood Reporter claims this new film will not center around any familiar Looney Tunes characters. The meat and potatoes of the film are still being hidden…
  • Movie Review: The Giver (2014) – A Cerebral Approach to the YA Dystopia Template

    29 Aug 2014 | 12:15 am
    Whenever I see Meryl Streep in a movie, I always automatically assume she is there to make me cry. She just has this completely tragic face, like she’s always just heard that her puppy was run over. So of course, when I saw her in a top roll in The Giver, I know it was going to be a real laugh fest. The Giver is the story of Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Then, he starts hanging out with The Giver (Jeff Bridges). The giver is the sole keeper of all the memories in his community, including the stories…

    The marketing team involved with The Hunger Games franchise should get a raise. They have done a superb job promoting the franchise’s next installment, Mockingjay: Part 1. Starting with the haunting TV address from President Snow, to the video showing Beetee interrupting one of Snow’s speeches, and now we get six brand new posters of the rebel warriors! The polished posters feature Liam Hemsworth, Evan Ross, Natalie Dormer, Mahershala Ali, Wes Chatham and Elden Henson. And of course, they are looking marvelous in their protective gear.

It now seems that the lease in Swiss made watches isn’t going to follow suit with the likes of Motorola and Samsung in releasing smartwatches that utilise Android Wear.

While Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. broke several records when it debuted last Fall, its viewership quickly dropped off due to poor writing and directing.

She appeared mystified that the story she had spent seven years creating had sold 30,000 copies in the U.K; it had beaten the odds of what her publishers had thought were possible (she had been told that children’s books just didn’t sell in large numbers). In a café, somewhere in Scotland, she sat unrecognisable to her now self, with long curly red hair and a baggy woollen jumper, a cup of coffee nestled on the table beside her elbow.

Initial findings suggest that the cause of death was suicide due to asphyxia. I don’t usually feel the need to comment on celebrity deaths, whilst every death is sad, and tragic in some of the recent losses that the celebrity world has had to come to terms with. I never really felt like my life would be affected. I appreciated their work I would notice and miss their presence on some of my favourite shows.

    It has been 35 years since The Night He Came Home. John Carpenter’s independent masterpiece turned 35 recently, so I thought it would be a good idea to go back and take a look at one of the greatest horror films ever made. And looking back on it now, you’d never think it was 35 years old, as it absolutely stands the test of time, and is arguably better than some of the horror films released today.Telling the story of Michael Myers, who, at the age of 6 brutally murders his teenage sister after she sleeps with her boyfriend (this is where that horror trope comes from!)

    Director: Paul W.S. Anderson Starring: Kit Harington, Carrie-Anne Moss, Emily Browning, Adewale Adkinnuoye-Agbaje, Jessica Lucas, Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland.Pompeii was clearly meant to be this year’s epic blockbuster disaster flick. Whether or not it succeeds in its mission still remains to be seen.The film opens in an ancient village in Britain, with a small boy waking up. He leaves his tent, only to see a Roman army invading and his family in danger. The Roman general rounds up all the rebels after a brief fight sequence, while the small boy feigns death nearby.

    It's hard to come by actors, who can pull off every genre with such brisk ease, you can never get enough. The abundantly gifted Jimmy Sheirgill, who's come a long way from Maachis and dished out films as assorted as A Wednesday, Yahaan, Saheb Biwi aur Gangster says this is just the beginning. In a quick interview, Sheirgill talks to me about the kind of films he enjoys doing, what he thinks about the "underrated" tag, his upcoming films and more! You've experimented with different films. What genre do you enjoy the most? I like light-hearted films. There's so much pressure…

    From being the star kid, you're slowly becoming one of the most bankable actors in Bollywood. How has the experience been so far? Alia: This is something I've wanted to do ever since I was a child. It wasn't because my parents were actors. It has always been in me to want to be an actor. You can call it genes cause my father's father was a filmmaker, father's mother was an actor, my dad is a director, my mother and sister are both actors, so it does run in the family but I also work towards it a lot. I make sure the choices I make are different and at the same time entertaining and…
  • Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya (2014) - Review

    Mansi Dutta
    12 Jul 2014 | 8:00 am
    Unlike so many remakes and rehashes (many of which only make you squirm) of Bollywood's most loved films, this modern-day spin to the classic DDLJ has a charm, a soul of its own. A cracker of a love story with a sparkling chemistry between the leads, Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya entertains all along. It revives happy memories of all those filmi love stories we've grown up watching (and fancied) over the years. If you're a sucker for Bollywood films, how can you miss this one!Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt win you over with their honest, unbridled performances. Humpty Sharma is no hero. He plays…

  • Benedict Cumberbatch cast as Khan

    Dan Green
    29 Aug 2014 | 8:11 am
    The Jungle Book joust between Warner Bros. and Disney has taken another exciting twist, as the former have just recruited Benedict Cumberbatch to voice tyrannical tiger Shere Khan. Disney announced some time ago that Luther himself, Idris Elba, will bring the man-eater to life for their version of the Rudyard Kipling novel. So team Warner, with Andy Serkis at the helm, now reads as Benedict Cumberbatch… yep, that’s about it. The youthful Sherlock star is indeed the first name on the cast list for Jungle Book: Origins, to give the project its proper title, but for now the irony of…

    Elmore Leonard’s works are often adapted for movies and Life of Crime is a big screen version of his 1978 novel, The Switch. A new trailer for the crime film is now online and it stars Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, Isla Fisher, John Hawkes, Yaslin Bay and Mark Boone Junior. The movie is directed by Daniel Schechter. Hawkes and Bay play two bumbling crooks called Louis Gara and Ordell Robbie who kidnap Aniston’s character, Mickey Dawson.

    Directed by Cloverfield’s Matt Reeves, this latest instalment of the Apes franchise may in fact be the best of the more recent offerings. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes focuses on the strained relationship between a society of super-evolved apes and a group of humans living in the ruins of San Francisco, who have managed to survive a worldwide epidemic of ‘Simian Flu’. The film showcases not only brilliant effects, but also great characterisation, and continues the Apes tradition of posing significant questions about the nature of humanity. Obviously Weta Digital’s CGI is insanely…

But soon enough there’s going to be even more to be thankful for, because the organisers of the 39th annual Toronto Film Festival have just announced that this year’s bash will be giving no less than three British movies their world premieres. The lucky winners are The Riot Club, The Theory of Everything and A Little Chaos, with the latter having the further honour of wrapping up the event.

    It’s been a pretty exciting week for those hungry for news of the third and final Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Not only were we gifted with another still from the movie (see above), but the first official poster for the film has also been released. Admittedly, the still is not that exciting (just battle-weary Gandalf and Bard looking gravely at something we can’t see), however the poster more than makes up for that. Feast your eyes on the below. As you can see, it really sets the town on fire (sorry). Well, what more could we ask for? Here we have Smaug…

Is there anybodyin there?"Perhaps one of the strangest and creatively miraculous releases of 2014 is Frank, a low budget independent film that furthers Fassbender's nearly impeccable resume of diverse and emotive roles.This is a dark, music infused comedy that drifts in to the rabbit hole of mental illness while telling a great story about friendship, loyalty, and the family-like relationship that is formed between a group of socially awkward band mates.

I mean, the special effects during that sequence. Wow. The bullet squibs? I thought it was a joke at first, but nope, I’m supposed to take that seriously. I think my 10-year-old nephew could have done better on his Mac Quadra. (Now that’s old school computing, kids!) Anyways, Season 5 is on the way this October and will no doubt…

I appreciate that they’re cheap to make and an easy way for horror film directors to get in “the biz,” but still, they’re almost always 90% boring and 10% mildly interesting at the very end. But I was wrong about “The Pyramid.” It’s apparently just really bad shaky cam filmmaking. Anyways, take a gander at the first trailer for the movie. Which just goes to show you, when nosy…

Okay, so I don’t know if the film is officially PG-13, but it seems like it to me from this first trailer. I mean, just about every shock scene here turns out to be a vision of some kind, which is kind of lame, but hey, after 50 “Amityville” movies, I guess that’s just how it is…

    13 Aug 2014 | 5:23 pm
    Touted by Paramount Pictures in 1932 at the “New Dietrich”, Sari Maritza was as beautiful, exotic and captivating as her acting counterpart but without the dedication and longevity. Maritza was a Paramount acquisition groomed and educated like no other with the company’s executives waiting months before committing her to a picture. However, this highly anticipated and talented actress only appeared in pictures for four years, retiring to engross herself in her many and sadly short-lived marriages. Like so many Hollywood hopefuls, despite talent, good-looks and the backing of a large…

    Hollywood, since the 1920’s, has been jokingly known as the community of fakers, liars and ‘Yes-man’. However once in a while a character stands out and breaks the mould as well as few a egos. Gloria Swanson by StanlawsPenrhyn Stanlaws was a portrait painting genius in the early 20th Century and, like rival Charles Dana Gibson, even had his own set of ‘Stanlaws Girls’. Born in Dundee, Scotland in 1877, his artworks graced the covers of countless popular magazines from Collier’s, Life, Saturday Evening Post, The American Magazine and Heart’s International. He became a…
  • The Tyrannical Wallace Beery: Gloria Swanson – Part 2

    29 Jun 2014 | 7:24 pm
    For all those new to the odd and perhaps scandalous relationship between Wallace Beery and Gloria Swanson, check out part 1. If not let’s catch up with the story:  As I said before, despite the age difference, Hollywood, family and arguments, Swanson and Beery were finally marriage. It was on the couple’s wedding night that the marriage (according to Swanson) turned violent.  Swanson claims during their first night together and with her mother in an adjoining room, Beery raped her. Beery had apparently spent a couple hours drinking at a local bar and was drunk when he went up to…

  • The Beginner’s Guide To Christopher Nolan’s Mind-Bending Films

    One of the year’s most-anticipated films is Interstellar, and it is directed by acclaimed director Christopher Nolan. It will be the first film he does exploring space. He began his resume with a short film called Doodlebug, and since then, he has taken Hollywood by storm directing nine films that include Following, Memento, Insomnia, The Prestige, Inception, and the The Dark Knight trilogy. When you see the name Christopher Nolan on the big screen, there is an expectation of greatness of his films. He has a very particular style that he brings to the marketing and making of his…

    You may know Stephen Hawking as the physicist in the wheelchair who speaks through his computer. He’s made numerous appearances in pop culture such as The Simpsons, Futurama, Last Week with John Oliver and even recorded his own ALS challenge. He doesn’t have ALS though; he has motor neurone disease (MND) that affects the control of voluntary muscle activity like speaking, walking and even swallowing. It starts slow and increases until the person can barely move and eventually dies. This is all way too sad to think about though so here’s Stephen in space and the trailer…
  • How A Film’s Music Manipulates Our Emotions

    1 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Guardians of the Galaxy broke records this year when its soundtrack reached number one, making it the first soundtrack in history to reach number one with no new songs on the album. This got me thinking about great soundtracks and the use of popular music versus composition. There’s a time and a place for both, and sometimes a time for none. Several filmmakers have mastered pinpointing those moments. Merits of Soundtrack Juxtaposing a scene or scenes in a film with popular music actively engages the audience, especially if you’re trying to target a specific group. It can also…

    The function of a trailer is to lure you into watching a certain film. It does this by giving you the most attractive, cherry-picked scenes. My purpose here is filler: add-ons, surplus information, and the authenticity only a random Asian man can give you. In fulfilling my obligations in that front, I’m also going to imitate a film trailer. I will do this by giving you cherry-picked information that answers 5 basic questions known as the 5 Ws. What? The trailer below is for the new movie, Pride (2014)not to be confused with Pride (2007). This film, directed by Tony Award Winner…

  • Blu-ray Reviews: All That Jazz, ¡Átame! (Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!), and Locke

    28 Aug 2014 | 1:30 pm
    by Tony Dayoub The year's best home releases usually fill that gap between the theatrical blockbuster season and that of awards hopefuls. Here are three worth your time. All That Jazz 1979's All That Jazz represents the apex of musical (black) comedy thanks to the creative force behind it, writer-director-choreographer Bob Fosse. Roy Scheider gets his finest role ever as Joe Gideon, Fosse's alter ego in all but name. Fosse somehow manages to highlight the most charming aspects of this egotistical, driven, drug-addicted womanizer by way of Scheider's tender interactions with the various women…
  • TV Review: Houdini (2014)

    26 Aug 2014 | 7:50 am
    by Tony Dayoub Houdini begins with master escape artist Harry Houdini (Adrien Brody) in chains, plunging into a frozen river from St. Louis's Eads Bridge. It's a representative flashpoint the miniseries will go back to at the end of its first half and at the start of its second. In between, Uli Edel's miniseries scrutinizes the enigmatic Houdini's personal life more than previous projects. Using the framework of a relatively obscure book, Houdini: A Mind in Chains - A Psychoanalytic Portrait, it tries to explain some of what actually motivated the man.

    20 Aug 2014 | 9:00 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Less dense than its already thin predecessor, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For feels like a vast improvement nonetheless. Almost a decade ago, Sin City seemed almost revolutionary in the way it capitalized on then innovative digital technology that allowed directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller to shoot their movie on virtual, green-screen sets. Based on Miller's own graphic novel series, the film carried a certain irony. It was a black-and-white film noir homage with a stripped down, DIY sensibility despite hosting a cast of hip actors and utilizing cutting edge filmmaking…

The film hits the ground running, but slowly loses steam as it progresses into what will become a bland murder mystery. The film stars Susan Sarandon as Hazel, an alcoholic, pill-popping cop in the sleepy winter town of Port Dundas. There, she lives a quiet life with her mother, played by the always-amazing Ellen Burstyn,…

  • Pathfinder

    26 Aug 2014 | 1:26 pm
    Pathfinder      "Pathfinder" is a 2007 plot oriented film that begins with a rather illogical and bold declaration. It is learned that six hundred years before Christopher Columbus stumbled upon North America, a dastardly group of vikings came to shore, hellbent on slaying the native culture to purify the land and claim home. This picture is the story of one man, who rose to the occasion and fulfilled the prophecy that would save a civilization.     A moment of history, that if recorded, would become an indelible and heartwarming memory.  …

For the twenty-first century has evolved the bureaucracy of the banking world to a virtual level of existence, featuring the utilization of wire transfers and mobile transactions. How did we ever conduct our banking needs without technology?   "Firewall" is a 2006 thriller that incorporates this cyber technology into the age old deed of bank robbery. Harrison Ford, an exceptional veteran actor who remains engaged…

There are individuals who savor movies purely for their entertainment value, the diminutive amount of souls who still deem film to be an art form, and the medial folks whose position lies somewhere in between these categories. Alas, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is a 2014 picture that gives rise to a timeless dispute that pits recreation versus fine art.     Regardless of the rationale that will send people to the steering wheel of…

The self entitled film "Hercules" is one of two pictures this year that have delved into the elaborate history of this Greek demigod and produced an adventure tale with little substance.
