Rings as it will be known (and as was titled the short that was included The Ring Twos release) was initially believed to be a sequel or a tiein of sorts to the American Ring films.

    Star power can be a dangerous thing at film festivals like Sundance. Seeing names like Nicole Kidman, Michael Fassbender, Ethan Hawke, and Kristen Wiig in the plot description naturally catches the eye simply because they craft an expectation that films without recognizable cast members do not. “A Western with Michael Fassbender”; “A Coming-of-Age Story with Ethan Hawke”—these are descriptors to which people can relate to more easily than films that aren’t so easily defined. However, predictability doesn’t mean quality. And while some of the star-powered films of this year’s…

    “American Sniper” and the sexy Jennifer Lopez thriller “The Boy Next Door,” the top two movies at the box office this weekend, could be giving Hollywood a glimpse at its future. The Iraq War saga has turned January, a month that for years has been a box office dead zone, into a hot spot. It’s blitzed the domestic box office for $200 million in 10 days, obliterating records for R-rated movies, holiday weekends and the month in the process.

  • FX’s “The Americans” Stakes Claim For Title of Best Current Drama

    Brian Tallerico
    26 Jan 2015 | 11:15 am
    The first season of “The Americans” was an entertaining, well-made spy drama. It was fun, particularly thanks to a fearless performance by Keri Russell. Season one was set-up for the far denser and superior second season, in which all of the stakes felt higher and the entire production seemed more refined. The show went from spy movie to John Le Carre. Now, in the first four episodes of the third season, references to other spy fiction don’t seem to do this show justice any more. It is distinctly its own fascinating thing. And with the addition of great supporting performers like Frank…

    1."Why 'Selma' Is More Than Fair to L.B.J.": The New Yorker's Amy Davidson makes an excellent argument deflating the controversy swirling around Ava DuVernay's historical drama.“Critics of ‘Selma’ have been offended by the idea that Johnson wanted King, and a voting-rights bill, to wait in line behind the President’s other legislative priorities. But that’s exactly what the historical record shows, including the January 15th transcript. In it, Johnson tells King that he wants his ‘people’ to lobby ‘those committee members that come from urban areas that are friendly to…

    26 Jan 2015 | 12:04 am
    Rick Famuyiwa’s “Dope” offered a relatively laid back Sundance 2015 a jolt of cinematic energy with one of the most vibrant comedies the fest has seen in the last few years. The director of “The Wood” and “Brown Sugar” returns with a hysterical comedy and social commentary in this high-paced hybrid that’s reportedly being circled for distribution by several major companies. It’s an incredibly smart hybrid film that captures the modern life of an American teen in Inglewood, California in a way that we’ve never seen before. It is about geek culture, black culture, school…

    Festivals like Sundance often force writers to entirely give up on looking for themes with which to tie together films and just admit—“Here are four movies I’ve seen that I want to write about.” In fact, the four films in my first Sundance dispatch of 2015 have almost nothing in common, even emerging from four distinctly different parts of the world and styles of film. If they represent anything as a whole, it’s the diversity of a fest like Sundance, which can deliver high-powered works from varied genres and countries of origin…and varied quality. The best of this quartet is…

  • Sundance 2015: The Black Panthers is a Solid Primer on a Subject That Deserves Something Bigger

It’s very much the kind of doc destined to play on American Experience, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, it does mean that the film works as little more than a solid primer.

The 16mm cinematography of Los Angeles and San Francisco is gorgeous and hypnotic, and it’s more than just pretty pictures.

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.

    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

    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.

  • It's Finally Time for a Terrifying Family Trip with 'The Strangers 2'

    Ethan Anderton
    26 Jan 2015 | 10:45 am
    It's been seven years since the spooky home invasion thriller The Strangers hit theaters, and the long-expected sequel is finally coming together. The Wrap reports The Strangers 2 now has a director in Marcel Langenegger, who directed the thriller Deception starring Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor. The story picks up where the first film left off, this time seeing the masked killers (known as Man in the Mask, Pin Up Girl and Dollface) setting their sights on a family whose teenage children have just discovered their recent handy work in a mobile home park run by their uncle. Can this be just…
  • Sundance 2015: Bel Powley Amazes in 'The Diary of a Teenage Girl'

    26 Jan 2015 | 10:25 am
    In the world of indie films, the coming-of-age storyline is a popular one. But because we're all different, maturing in ways that aren't identical, that makes for a variety of great stories with similar themes. In this case, director Marielle Heller launches her career with The Diary of a Teenage Girl, based on the graphic novel of the same name by Phoebe Gloeckner, which follows 15-year old Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) growing up in the heart of San Francisco in the drug friendly 1970s, quickly and aggressively exploring her sexuality. However, making things complicated is the fact that this…
  • Adam Sandler's First Movie at Netflix is 'Ridiculous 6' with Huge Cast

    26 Jan 2015 | 9:36 am
    Back in 2012, news surfaced of a developing comedy at Warner Bros. Pictures from Adam Sandler called Ridiculous 6. However, last fall, that project was revealed to be dead. But when the project was nixed, we actually thought there was a good chance the film would get revived as part of Sandler's new deal with Netflix to star in and produce four original films for the streaming service. And now The Wrap has learned that Ridiculous 6 will indeed be Sandler's first movie for Netflix through his Happy Madison production banner, and he's assembled a huge cast of his usual suspects, but also some…

    Way back in 2011, Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson was attached to a new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast from director Guillermo del Toro. However, in the years since, the film has never really gained any traction in development, mostly because del Toro is just too busy. At one time Watson was also supposed to head to Disney to lead their live-action Cinderella adaptation, but she never closed a deal. Well, now she's headed to the House of Mouse for real this time as Disney has just announced that she has now signed on to lead their new live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast…

    We've already seen a good amount of footage from The Avengers: Age of Ultron thanks to the teaser trailer and the most recent second trailer, but one thing we haven't seen is a sweet shot of all the superheroes together. But that changes today with the cover for the latest issue of Empire. It's a Photoshopped image of them together, so it's not from the movie, but it's cool to see Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) standing with new characters like Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson). But no sign of Paul Bettany as The Vision yet. Look!

    Russ Fischer
    26 Jan 2015 | 12:15 pm
    The Cove director Louie Psihoyos returns to Sundance in 2015 with a new call to action. Racing Extinction is a more wide-ranging documentary than its predecessor, albeit one that is just as sharply produced, and no less stirring. Psihoyos says his intention was to go a lot bigger, and the film follows through by offering a sort of omnibus catalog of several interrelated problems facing life on Earth. If anything, Racing Extinction is too broad to give ample time to every subject, but the sum total of Psihoyos’ efforts is devastatingly effective. Psihoyos begins with tactics that will be…

    Joss Whedon is currently working very hard on giving audiences a worthy follow-up to one of the biggest films of all time, The Avengers. Avengers: Age of Ultron is a few short months away and the new issue of Empire Magazine had a bunch of new images about that film. They also asked Whedon about his future in the Marvel Universe, specifically whether or not he’ll be back for Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2. We’d heard that the Russo Brothers would be helming those films after Captain America: Civil War so Whedon’s quote probably won’t surprise you, but you can…

    Each year, the International Film Festival Rotterdam provides a good look at things to come in indie Thai cinema, and this year's big highlight is the world premiere of Vanishing Point (), a new feature from video artist and indie helmer Jakrawal Nilthamrong.Containing a car – though likely not a 1970 Dodge Challenger – and twisted wreckage, Vanishing Point is not a remake of the cult-classic car-chase drama, though like the characters in that 1971 flick, the folks in 2015's Vanishing Point are also dealing with existential crises.It's actually a partly autobiographical picture by…

    My favorite film of 2014, The Songs of Rice (พลงของข้าว, Pleng Khong Kao), opens in a limited release in Thai cinemas on January 22.Directed by Uruphong Raksasad and produced by Pimpaka Towira, The Songs of Rice is a joyous celebration of the often-lively (and even explosive) rites and festivities that accompany rice cultivation in Thailand. It premiered about a year ago at the International Film Festival Rotterdam, where it won the Fipresci Award, and made several other festival appearances.

According to the report over at TVInsider this is only in the negotiating stage. While Fox may own the film rights for the X-men films they do not have the television or the comic books rights. Those rights remain with Marvel, across the street (not literally), at Disney. Fox would need Marvel's permission to go ahead. "It's in negotiations," (Fox chairman Gary) Newman…
  • Sundance 2015 Review: LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT And The Closeness Of The Great Divide

    26 Jan 2015 | 11:05 am
    Director Rodrigo García's minimalist Christ-centered parable on fathers and sons pivots the holy man as everyman and observer. It's an approach that feels of merit: one that ultimately doesn't see earth-bound humanity and a more intangible sense of spirituality as separate entities, but of one and the same power, however far apart they may seem.Nonetheless, this observational approach is a detriment to the film, with the end result feeling too removed from its own sense of faith, leaving with us merely an admirable, curious effort on the story of Jesus (referred to by his Hebrew/Aramic name…

    Can you call it a bromance if there is no comedic intent? If not, then what's the best way to label a burgeoning platonic relationship between two men connecting over previously unexplored similarities and interests? Maybe it's just friendship, relationship, or connection. But none of those really define the dynamic at play quite as eloquently as just calling it a bromance. Call it what you like, the dynamic explored in James Ponsoldt's David Foster Wallace drama The End of the Tour is a brilliantly touching and informative trip inside the male intellect.

    Fury left us in such a strange place that I ultimately called it a kind of anti-movie. Despite agreeing with most of my problems with the film, Shane ended up rating it quite a bit higher, and actually, I didn’t rate it that low myself. If you listen to us regularly, you probably know that we are becoming famous for spending a lot of our time talking about the negatives of movies we rate highly, and the positives of movies we give very low scores, but with Fury, the movie was so odd that I don’t think we knew where to go with our dissection of it.

    Backstrom Review FOX has a daring bet it’s making on Backstrom, and though we might not like to admit to the pigeonholing it entails, a lot of people are going to have to take Rainn Wilson in exactly the right way for the show to take off. We’ll have to hope it works out, because this is the coolest show in a long time, and Wilson is perfect. The trick here is that the show may need the help of Rainn Wilson as draw, but that audience also has to be able to distance themselves from Dwight Schrute. Wilson has obviously been around, but to a large percentage of people he is either…

    Glassland (dir. Gerard Barrett)Unfortunately in terms of audience expectation Irishman Gerard Barrett's Glassland suffers from a somewhat misleading logline, "In a desperate attempt to reunite with his broken family, our young taxi driver becomes entangled in the criminal underworld." The criminal element is a minor part of this film which only rears its head in the final moments.

The scenario is identified accurately in the title. Imagine an entity/monster/ghost/zombie following you forever, never stopping until you're dead. Mitchell combines the deadly unstoppable force of Michael Myers, Yul Brynner's robot gunslinger from Westworld and hell, why not, The Terminator to arrive at a monster as terrifying as all of them. As much as Mitchell wants to freak you out he wants to bring us all back to the nostalgia of the 80's when…

    So here's the unscientific best of the year. With a couple of exceptions the common thread of this crop is clearly the cynicism and darkness which each of these filmmakers brought to the screen. Sure Boyhood was an admirable narrative exercise and sure, The Imitation Game and Theory of Everything were handsome but forgettable biopics, but these ten pictures were the most memorable for me because they either challenged traditional genres, executed age-old genres to perfection or simply projected unique cinematic voices with panache better than anyone else.FOXCATCHERDir.

    The Bard’s tale of the ambitious Scottish lord who with his wife conspire to take the throne of Scotland by hook or crook has always made for great cinema. It’s one of the more violent and action-packed of Shakespeare plays and through the eye of Roman Polanski, at the peak of his abilities, turns the story into a ruthless and bloody parable of ambition - a film even more resonant with the Charles Manson tragedy only a couple years behind this production.The Tragedy of Macbeth (1971) dir.

But when orchestrated by a master of the genre, at the top of his game, where other filmmakers would have made this picture into a sloppy ham-fisted mess, David Fincher makes two and half hours a completely engrossing experience, terrifying and witty in equal measure and self-aware enough not to take itself too seriously.Gone Girl (2014) dir.

  • 'Strange Magic’ review: Music can’t save a sprinkle of plot

    By Michael Ordoña
    22 Jan 2015 | 1:36 pm
    There are good things in the animated musical fantasy “Strange Magic”: the ultra-detailed, photorealistic animation; the name-that-tune pleasures of a mashup-jukebox soundtrack; fine vocal performances from the cast’s actor-singers; and a transcendent sequence featuring the 1975 title song. “Strange Magic” borrows the notion of fairies having misadventures with a love potion in the woods from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and the increasingly popular, “Glee”-ful musical approach of “Happy Feet,” “Pitch Perfect” and “Moulin Rouge” (on which composer and musical…
  • 'Match’ review: Patrick Stewart takes center stage

    By G. Allen Johnson
    22 Jan 2015 | 10:49 am
    There’s not much scenery in “Match” — it only has three actors and is set largely in a New York City apartment — but what little of it there is is chewed up pretty good, mostly by Sir Patrick Stewart. In writer-director Stephen Belber’s adaptation of his own 2005 Broadway play, Stewart is given free rein to explore an aging, gay dance instructor who is confronted by a married couple (Matthew Lillard, Carla Gugino) ostensibly for an interview to help with her graduate thesis — but in reality they have another agenda. Tobi (Stewart), in his 70s, spends his days knitting and,…

    Movie review: 'Killers’: Gorgeous torture porn “Killers” is the most gorgeous-looking torture porn film I have ever seen — and has a couple of tremendous action sequences. [...] it is also thoroughly disgusting, as you find out in the opening minutes when an innocent young woman is bludgeoned to death and her remains dissolved by acid. The film, produced by the same people who brought you the stirring action film “The Raid,” takes place in Tokyo, where Nomura (Kazuki Kitamura) films his brutal killings and posts them on a website, and Jakarta, where Bayu (Oka Antara), a failed…

    By Mick LaSalle
    22 Jan 2015 | 12:01 am
    In “Cake,” Jennifer Aniston takes on 15 extra pounds and takes off the makeup, and what the audience ends up seeing is a normal-looking person, not a movie star. Beautiful movie stars do not let you see the lines on their face, and when they let you into their bedrooms, it’s not to show you what they really look like in the morning. [...] making “Cake” required confidence on Aniston’s part — in the nature of her appeal, in the intelligence of her audience, but mainly in her own talent. There’s no safety net in this movie, no falling back on charm. Within her first five minutes…

[...] he enters into a sexual relationship with a woman 40 years his junior. [...] “The Humbling” has the aura of a vanity project for Al Pacino, and yet even then, not the usual vanity project. “The Humbling,” as befits its title, is a film about the loss of power, specifically the losses that attend the entry into old age.

This has nothing to do with the legal issues that most people encounter, involving crime, wills, houses, or divorce. It concerns London’s pre-eminence in the resolution of international commercial disputes— those substantial business disputes, often involving foreign parties or contracts performed abroad, which might in principle be heard anywhere. That an English court is everyone’s court of choice in such cases has long been an…
  • Public health in 2014: a year in review

    Meredith Sneddon
    26 Jan 2015 | 3:30 am
    Last year was an important year in the field of public health. In 2014, West Africa, particularly Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea, experienced the worst outbreak of the Ebola virus in history, and with devastating effects. Debates around e-cigarettes and vaping became central, as more research was published about their health implications. Conversations surrounding nutrition and the spread of disease through travel and migration continued in the media and among experts. We’ve chosen a selection of articles that discuss public health issues that arose in 2014, their effects on the…
  • Which health messages work?

    26 Jan 2015 | 1:30 am
    Is it better to be positive or negative? Many of the most vivid public health appeals have been negative – “Smoking Kills” or “Drive, Drive, and Die” – but do these negative messages work when it comes to changing eating behavior? Past literature reviews of positive- or gain-framed versus negative or loss-based health messages have been inconsistent. In our content analysis of 63 nutrition education studies, we discovered four key questions which can resolve these inconsistencies and help predict which type of health message will work best for a particular target audience. The…

    One of Glasgow’s best-known tourist highlights is its Victorian Necropolis, a dramatic complex of Victorian funerary sculpture in all its grandeur and variety. Christian and pagan symbols, obelisks, urns, broken columns and overgrown mortuary chapels in classical, Gothic, and Byzantine styles convey the hope that those who are buried there—the great and the good of 19th century Glasgow—will not be forgotten. But, of course, they are mostly forgotten and even the conspicuous consumption expressed in this extraordinary array of great and costly monuments has not been enough to keep their…
  • Have we become what we hate?

    25 Jan 2015 | 5:30 am
    In 1971, William Irvin Thompson, a professor at York University in Toronto, wrote an op-ed in the New York Times entitled, “We Become What We Hate,” describing the way in which “thoughts can become inverted when they are reflected in actions.” He cited several scientific, sociocultural, economic, and political situations where the maxim appeared to be true. The physician who believed he was inventing a pill to help women become pregnant had actually invented the oral contraceptive. Germany and Japan, having lost World War II, had become peaceful consumer societies. The People’s…

    The Limey (1999). DB here: Here’s a story, so far not finished.   Chapter 1: You can’t put ten pounds of mud in a five-pound sack (Dolly Parton) Once upon a time, before home video and cable, movies were broadcast on television. They might be drawn from local TV stations’ 16mm collections or transmitted from the networks on “movie of the week” shows. When the film was a widescreen film, especially in anamorphic processes, it was adjusted, as we now say, “to fit your screen.” That TV screen was in an aspect ratio of about 1.33:1 (4 x 3), like pre-1950s commercial…

In his Stark guise, Westlake as a writer really is as fearsomely directed and effective as Parker himself. I was thinking about the particular narrative pleasures here, like the way that delayed exposition works with the perspective switches between different sections. There is such precision to the way he builds certain effects in a systematic way, the way that we see Parker making plans, going around Fun Island doing things, but Stark not telling us…

I started reading, attending conferences, giving papers at conferences, and eventually publishing scholarly articles. In 2000 I was invited to join the expedition at Amarna, registering statuary fragments. That work quickly grew into matching pieces, reconstructing a considerable portion of an important statue, researching in museums around the world, and now working on a large book on Amarna royal statuary.

    Monday The job hunt continued for Beard Face today. He set his sights on being a multi-purpose road sign. After contacting the local council, the old boy convinced them to head outside and watch a demonstration of his signing ability. Examples of beardy’s actions included squatting (slow down), jumping (up your speed), smiling (most likely for intimidation), shaking his head (stop), nodding his head (proceed) and crying (hazard up ahead). Unsurprisingly, the council have decided to stick with the inanimate road signs. Tuesday Beard Face and Frizzy Hair have been watching Ramsay’s Hotel…

    In 1999 I was studying at college when I began drawing maps for the world of Elenchera. I would eventually come to have more than 500 of these as the world history took shape. I still have them thank goodness! I attempted two novels set in Elenchera – Endeavour (2000-4) and The Voice of Elenchera (2006) – but neither came to fruition. I was more committed to building the history and making sure I knew each land and its people intimately before I attempted another novel. I spent more than a decade on Elenchera before another novel appeared. In late 2008 I met my wife, Donna, who…

    Haters gonna hate. Retaliators gonna retaliate. You don't have to do either. In today’s world, it seems like every idea is immediately met with a counterargument. Whenever someone publicizes their personal opinion about the hot-button issues of our day, it’s instantly met by a dozen rebuttals or counterarguments from people on the opposite side of the issue. With so many different opinions, it’s natural to pick a side and fervently declare that our truth is the ultimate truth. It’s tempting to feel we need to prove the legitimacy of our opinions to those around us.

    Dave Taylor

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

This is the film that almost wasn’t released: Production company Sony Films was allegedly hacked by North Koreans and warned not to release the film. They capitulated and five days prior to release announced the cancellation of the film. Then the day before Christmas — its scheduled release…

    It’s tricky to translate musicals onto the big screen for a modern audience, which is why we rarely see them at the local cineplex. Les Miserables was an exception and surprised a lot of people with its strong box office performance, but it’s hard to think about another recent live action musical that was worth watching. Following its previous hit, the Disney musical Into the Woods is unsurprisingly similar to Les Miserables with its superb sets and star-studded cast. The biggest difference is that Into the Woods has a sly, twisted sense of humor about its source material…

    There’s always been a slightly uncomfortable relationship between the voyeuristic viewer and the pandering filmmaker, whether it’s highbrow cinema, big-budget television, crass pornography or the nightly TV news. During the Vietnam War, the great debate was whether to show the bodies of soldiers killed in the conflict on television, but in our collective zeal for that which is salacious we’ve made that question quaint and dated: now the modern TV news watchword is “if it bleeds, it leads.” In Nightcrawler, Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a drifter, loser and…

    I’ll start out by assuring you that The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is really good, a satisfying ending to director Peter Jackson’s trilogy of Hobbit movies. Smaug is vanquished, Bilbo returns to the Shire, and the dwarves emerge victorious from the epic battle between the forces of good, the forces of evil and the greed that Smaug’s massive gold horde produces in even the least covetous. If you’ve read the book you already know the basics of the tale, a story far simpler than The Lord of the Rings trilogy. By splitting J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit…

  • Discussing Kevin Costner’s 'Black or White' with Tweens

    26 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    Love stories, sweeping Westerns, American baseball movies – Kevin Costner has made them all. And now, he’s captivating audiences with Black or White -- a nervy, timely story that confronts the dichotomy that is race relations in this country. Based on real-life events experienced by director Mike Binder, the family drama follows Elliot Anderson, a grandfather (Costner) who must suddenly care for Eloise, his mixed-race granddaughter, on his own. But when paternal grandmother...Read MoreRead Comments
  • 2015 SAG Awards: 'Birdman' Wins; Sets Up Major Oscar Showdown with 'Boyhood'

    25 Jan 2015 | 8:21 pm
    As we skip down the final stretch of awards season, it's becoming more and more clear that no one film is a lock for that elusive Best Picture Oscar. This weekend's SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards proved Birdman -- which also won big at the recent PGA Awards -- is still very much a leading contender despite Boyhood snagging top prize at the Golden Globes and the Critics' Choice Awards. It may be down to a two-movie race, but which of those movies walks away with the year's...Read MoreRead Comments

    23 Jan 2015 | 11:55 am
    Late last week, Patrick Stewart appeared on Larry King's TV show and stated plainly that he and Ian McKellen would not be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse because the movie "is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance." This isn't terribly surprising, since the younger incarnations of their characters, as played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, respectively,...Read MoreRead Comments

  • The Boy Next Door

    Bob Ignizio
    22 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Review by Bob IgnizioRob Cohen's THE BOY NEXT DOORperfectly replicates the vibe of such nineties “it's not a horror movie” thrillers as UNLAWFUL ENTRYTHE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLESWIMFAN, and THE CRUSH in which sexual attraction transforms seemingly nice and normal characters into obsessive stalkers who torment the objects of their affection in increasingly violent and elaborate ways. It's the kind of film that holds its nose in the air thinking its better than schlock like SAWor FRIDAY THE 13TH because of its big name stars and slicker production values, but at the end of the day is…

It’s definitely not The Rachel, the iconic hairdo Aniston popularized while starring as Rachel Green on the beloved NBC sitcom, “Friends.” The most remarkable thing about Aniston’s CAKE ‘do is how truly ghastly it is: you’d swear Claire Simmons (Aniston’s character) hadn’t even picked up a shampoo bottle in months.The utter lack of vanity evinced by Aniston in Daniel Barnz’s new movie only begins with her hair.

There's a fairly good chance you've eaten it, too, since it's one of the most popular ethnic foods in this country, just behind pizza according to one subject interviewed in the new documentary THE SEARCH FOR GENERAL TSO.

  • The Grand Seduction (now on home video and streaming on Netflix)

    Wayne Richards
    20 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Review by Wayne RichardsGenerally I am opposed to the idea of remaking older movies. It seems the majority of remakes end up being an inferior product in comparison to the original work. As reboot after crappy reboot gets released, the film industry’s well of original ideas dries up and invariably, past successful films continue to become fodder for modern cinematic flops. Although THE GRAND SEDUCTION is based on a critically successful French film from 2003 (SEDUCING DR. LEWIS), it avoids the pitfalls of bad remakes and succeeds in its own right with an abundance of undeniable charm and…

  • ‘Deadpool’ Star Ryan Reynolds Says the Low Budget Equals More Freedom

    H. Shaw-Williams
    26 Jan 2015 | 11:01 am
    As superhero movies have clambered to the top of the box office mountain, their budgets have grown with them – to the point that spending north of $200 million on a film adapted from comic books is pretty common. Of course, another thing that all of the major superhero movies have in common is their MPAA rating, which invariably (for the blockbuster successes, at least) sticks to PG-13 or less. One comic book character who has an unwillingness to stay family friendly is Deadpool, which is no doubt part of the reason why it took so long for Twentieth Century Fox to finally give the…

    26 Jan 2015 | 10:45 am
    As Disney continues re-calibrating its classics from its vault into live action films – like last year’s Maleficent, and this March’s Cinderella - so too does it command stronger talent on every new production. Cinderella, for example, has Kenneth Branagh at its helm and Cate Blanchett playing Lady Tremaine; Jon Favreau, meanwhile, has wrangled a stacked cast for his take on The Jungle Book, including such thespians as Bill Murray, Idris Elba, and Lupita Nyong’o. The slowly germinating Beauty and the Beast is no different. Disney has award winning talent at…

    The rumor that Anthony and Joe Russo – directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and next year’s Captain America: Civil War – are all but set to helm The Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 & 2 started making the rounds even before Marvel Studios had announced that Avengers 3 and Avengers 4 would take on the form of a two-part adaptation - one that will incorporate elements from the “Infinity War” and “Infinity Gauntlet” comic book storylines, by the sound of it. Infinity War is when the ‘Mad Titan’ himself, Thanos –…

That’s to be expected, though, as we’re three months away from the beginning of Ultron’s battle with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

    Dan Persons
    19 Jan 2015 | 12:16 pm
    Ethan Hawke warps the time-lines in PREDESTINATION. It’s January Mysteries time! Usually it’s no secret why a film gets given a January release date. The month’s largely a dumping ground, a catch-all for films that, for one reason or another, have been found wanting. But occasionally a film lands in the month that, from all on-screen evidence, should have received better treatment. Hence, the mystery. Such is the case with PREDESTINATION, a science fiction tale based on Robert Heinlein’s classic, time paradox story, All You Zombies, and starring Ethan Hawke as a…

    Atmosphere doesn’t completely make up for a filmic outlook in INTO THE WOODS, but it helps lots. Loyalty. It’s a quality much to be desired, in how we treat our loved ones, the way we deal with our co-workers, in how those entrusted with the public welfare respect their responsibilities (we’re looking at you, Congress). And there’s a lot to be said for loyalty when it comes to adapting a film from another source, be it a novel, a play, or a musical. But it can be impediment as well, especially when loyalty to the original material gets in the way of letting a filmmaker…

    We haven’t actually clocked it, but it does seem there’s as much of this guy in THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES as there is actual hobbit. There’s a bit of OCD that goes along with genre film fandom — once you’ve signed on to a franchise, you’re kind-of obligated to follow it wherever it will take you, for good or ill. Thus the sullen air hanging over screenings of REVENGE OF THE SITH or any of the Wolverine spin-offs — it really does sap the energy out of an auditorium when attendance is more dutiful than enthusiastic.

Just in time to provide a respite for anyone sick of all that Holly-Jolly, IFC is releasing a pair of notorious erotic classics to the cinema. Walerian Borowczyk’s THE BEAST and IMMORAL TALES had their original debuts in the ’70’s, both films reveling in a then-new-found freedom to explore aspects of sexuality previously considered taboo — in the case of the titles at hand, that…

Usually, when you play “Whatever Happened To…?” it’s with some washed-up celebrity. You track the downward career spiral of a Max Baer Jr, a Johnny Whittaker, a Kim Kardashian (not yet, but one day, one day), and get a concentrated lesson in the impermanence of fame. Interesting thing, though: You can play the game with fictional characters as well, and learn something about corporate decision making in the modern-day film…

  • Movie Poster of the Week: “The 4th Man” and the Poster Art of Vincent Topazio

    Adrian Curry
    23 Jan 2015 | 8:07 am
    Above: US one sheet for The 4th Man (Paul Verhoeven, Netherlands, 1983). I’ve always liked this elegant poster for Paul Verhoeven’s The 4th Man with its striking combination of soft realism and hard geometry (that knife-like number 4!) and I decided recently to look for other designs by the artist who signs himself Topazio. But, although I have found a number of pieces with his signature, I have so far come up short on much information on the man. Vincent Topazio was, it seems, an illustrator who worked from at least the mid 70s (I found a 1975 New York magazine illustration…
  • "Mr. Turner", "Boyhood", and Criticism

    Greg Gerke
    21 Jan 2015 | 5:55 am
    Mr. Turner Let us begin with difficulties. Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner, a film as rich as an afternoon in the Louvre, presents an austere and bilious portrait of the Englishman and a ridiculous one of a young John Ruskin, a critic who explicated Turner in many words over the course of different works—a critic who drew and painted, lecturing on both with a great avidity. In Leigh, the drama is the classic case of critic as obnoxious foil to the artist's majesty and magic, with Ruskin's exaggerated lisping accent and pushing every “r” out as a “w” being the cherry on…
  • The Speed of Causality: Michael Mann's "Blackhat"

    Ryland Walker Knight
    20 Jan 2015 | 11:31 am
    “Look at where you are.” (Spoilers abound.) Michael Mann’s new film, Blackhat, is a paradox of magnitudes and proximities. The scale is global, as announced in the opening shots that rhyme with the Universal logo just prior and, thanks to the dissolves down to Earth, Charles and Ray Eames' 1977 Powers of Ten. Once on ground, in a nuclear reactor’s control room, the powers of cinema take us yet deeper, smaller, to see how fast data travels across minuscule relays inside a screen, a computer, a network. And this data, or code, is made visible as points of…

    Over the past decade Wang Bing has established himself as one of the most prominent figures in documentary cinema, recording the real lives of ordinary people being the safest, most economical way for an independent filmmaker like him to realize personal film projects in China without the State's approval and financial support. These somewhat difficult conditions of production must always be kept in mind when discussing his output, which also includes two fictional reenactments of actual events—the short film Brutality Factory (2007) and the several-year-in-the-making feature film The…

    First thing you need to know before I begin is that I have a soft spot for Keanu Reeves. I know he's not the greatest actor in the world, but over the years I've enjoyed his films, and I'm a fan. Unfortunately, director Eli Roth's latest torture thriller isn't one of his best. I didn't like this movie at all, and I don't know how or why it was made. I personally believe that this is the most embarrassing movie that Reeves has starred in, and it makes me sad. Apparently the actor jumped at the opportunity to star in it, though. I'm not sure why, unless he thought it would be a fun…

I swear I heard them grumbling at me when I forced them open. But I'm so glad they complied, because our first film of the day was an absolute gem. 'Sleeping With Other People' is a rom-com written and directed by Leslye Headland ('Bachelorette') who described the film in her intro as "When Harry Met Sally for a-holes." And that sums it up perfectly. Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis play two former college lovers who reconnect years later and…

It sounded like ‘Prisoners’ set in the Aussie outback, but unfortunately, the pace is SO slow, all tension is lost. The cast is solid - Nicole puts everything she has into her role, as does Hugo Weaving, who plays the cop trying to solve the case. But there’s…

    Edward Davidson
    23 Jan 2015 | 12:00 am
    J. M. W. Turner was considered a controversial painter in the 19th century. His use of light and his elevating of landscape painting as an artform to rival historical paintings in England was seen as one of the key forerunners of the impressionist movement. Fellow artists recognized his brilliance as did certain key art buyers. Though renowned for his oil paintings, he became known as one of the greatest masters of watercolors. The highly underrated character actor Timothy Spall turns in a terrific portrayal of him in Mike Leigh’s intimate film Mr. Turner. The film concerns the last 25…

It played to me more that she has thought this through and yet hasn’t;  she has all the gear she would need but the idea of what this was going to be like, walking and carrying…
  • Film review – Appropriate Behavior

    Cassidy Robinson
    22 Jan 2015 | 10:38 pm
    Desiree Akhavan’s breakup comedy Appropriate Behavior cautiously and honestly blends the familiar with the new, as she competently writes, directs, and stars in her first feature. Indiscriminately using every aspect of her own life to the screen, Akhaven plays Shirin, a second-generation Iranian who’s struggling to find a job, a living situation, and a suitable rebound after ending a closeted relationship with her first serious girlfriend, Maxine (Rebecca Henderson). What first seems like a mopey, navel-gazing coming-of-age drama, quickly reveals itself as a clever and self-deprecating…
  • Film Review – Song One

    22 Jan 2015 | 10:26 pm
    Just to get this out in the open, I am not a passenger on the hate train for Anne Hathaway. While she seems a little bland, it’s nothing to get all nasty about. I don’t really get the vitriol directed towards her; it just seems out of proportion to anything she’s actually done. (Or not done as the case may be.) But whatever, she’s the female lead in Kate Barker-Froyland’s feature debut, Song One, and she does just fine. But I do have one weirdo complaint, so I’m going to make it now before I start with the real film review, because my issue is petty and should not distract from…

    Confirming suspicions that stoners going to laugh at the fake baby are only one subgroup contributing to American Sniper’s box-office success, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee now claims that the film has led to a threefold increase in people talking about killing Muslims on social media. (The group has apparently already compiled hundreds of such messages, examples of which we will decline to reprint here.) “The last time we saw such a sharp increase was in 2010, around the Ground Zero mosque,” Abed Ayoub, the group’s national and legal policy director, tells The…

  • Coming Distractions: Trailer for Eli Roth’s Knock Knock invites viewers to play a dangerous game

    26 Jan 2015 | 10:44 am
    Eli Roth’s latest, Knock Knock, marks the director’s first-ever premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and according to the director, it also “marks a turning point” in his career, shifting from the gore that’s defined his horror work to a more psychological sort of thriller. The film finds devoted family man Keanu Reeves alone one weekend when two young women (Lorenza Izzo, Ana de Armas) happen upon his door, with sexy, then dangerous results. Knock Knock is inspired by 1977’s Death Game, a film to which Roth bought the rights to use as a “springboard”—while also casting…

It was a stellar performance all around, as presenters, winners, and patient, tuxedoed bystanders alike gamely turned in believable approximations of enthusiasm. That was even true of the non-actors working behind the scenes—most notably the sound man,…

    Tyrese has been getting a lot of slack over the past few days since he first hinted at possibly playing John Stewart, aka a Green Lantern. I think he would make an awesome Green Lantern in both the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League films. John Stewart was originally set as a backup Green Lantern when Guy Gardner was out, being the first African-American Green Lantern in the comics and one of the few superheroes of color in comics during the ’70s. He was a former marine and tough guy who was described by Hal Jordan as carrying a chip on his shoulder that’s…

Besides that, we already have Snow White and the Huntsman, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty (Maleficent), and others. Well now we’re getting a Beauty in the Beast live-action remake! And I’m proud to tell you that Emma Watson will be playing Belle. How perfect is that? We all know her for her beloved part in the Harry Potter series as Hermione Granger. To be…

      “A kiss that speaks volumes is seldom a first edition…” Claire Whiting     Kissing is a critical piece of any relationship. Initially, it plays a large role in determining sexual compatibility. Then…as things get more intimate…it provides the backbone for foreplay and sex.   If someone doesn’t enjoy kissing you, then there is little chance they will have sex with you.   Unfortunately, few people are ever taught HOW to kiss. Most learn through trial-and-error, which makes it very difficult to improve. (Not many kissing partners…

      You can’t feel confident about something that requires a skill or knowledge you don’t have.       Confidence is attractive, but requires more than flipping a switch.   True confidence requires COMPETENCE.   For example, an Olympic swimmer will be extremely confident in their ability to swim the length of a pool. On the flip side, this same swimmer may have no confidence in performing brain surgery. Let’s apply this to dating…   Do you often feel confused and bewildered by dating?   If so, join the crowd.  Most people receive…

    14 Jan 2015 | 8:10 pm
    Back at the end of 2012, I previewed Life of Pi via a sponsored post.  Part of the sponsorship was a free copy of the novel (movie tie-in paperback).  In summer of 2013 I got around to reading it and Summer 2014 I was able to view the film, on my parents’ DVR. The book is well written, with an good storytelling and interesting plot.  The film is just an abbreviated version of the film, with brilliant visuals. I won’t spoil any major plot points, but the themes and some of the logic of the main character Pi to me seems flawed.  The major theme of the story, solidified by the…

    Last week my company held its second annual User Group conference, where we invited all of our clients and to come to Milwaukee for sessions, networking, and to meet our team.  This year it was held at the Pfister Hotel, a luxury hotel built in 1893. Being in such an old building and experiencing the awesome architecture reminded me of my time in Europe with my college choir, seeing cathedrals, opera houses, and old churches.

  • Raised by Penguins? Bat nipples? George Clooney?

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

    6 Jun 2014 | 10:15 pm
    As a kid I remember watching the live action Batman (1989) and being very entertained.  It is probably because, as a kid, there wasn’t much for me to think about or understand in the film. It is a highly stylized (for 1989), almost cartoonish version of Batman, with very weak characters and plot.  Michael Keaton does fine, as a rather bored Bruce Wayne, with some pretty funny one-liners.  His portrayal of The Batman, however, is a bland, kind of lame superhero.  But you know, even a lame Batman is cool.  I think it is that suit. The Batwing flying straight…

    Ugh, it’s Christmas again? Being from a small—almost non-existent—family, banquet dinners, cheesy holiday sweaters, and mistletoe awkwardness all seem like something out of a bad movie to me. Christmases in my household were depressingly casual: five-minute gift exchanges next to a three-foot plastic tree. In elementary school I had the shocking realization that Christmas cheer is not just straight-to-DVD fodder and is very much real.

The attacker is the Fizzler Bomber who wants to destroy a large part of New York City by blowing it up, killing thousands in the process. The agent is played by Ethan Hawke who goes on the quest along with his new recruit, John Doe, played by Sarah Snook.

  • Inherent Vice: a Stoner’s Perspective of Life

    14 Jan 2015 | 9:55 am
    Inherent Vice has been adapted from the 2009 novel of the same name by Thomas Pynchon. The movie, packed with drugs and humor, is akin to The Big Lebowski, a film by Coen Brothers, which has gone on to become a cult classic. The movie is set in 1970s L.A. and even though it shares a certain similarity to a few movies set in the same era, it is made unique by comedic elements and a diverse cast. The film’s central character is a private investigator, Doc Sportello, played by Joaquin Phoenix. He’s a druggie, shaggy-haired man-child who hates violence. Being a private investigator,…
  • A Most Violent Year – a Most Interesting Film

    12 Jan 2015 | 9:48 am
    J.C Chandor does it again after churning out movies with ideas that are not exactly revolutionary. This time around, he comes with the plot of businessmen trying to keep their hands clean in the 1980s era , one full of crime ridden fallacies in the City of New York. Oscar Isaac leads the pack with a superb performance as a businessman struggling to keep his hand out of the dirt as he tries to live the American dream. J.C Chandor does a brilliant job of portraying the life of businessmen in the 1980’s era, said to have been one of the worst and most violent years (1981 to be specific) in…
  • Selma: a Historic Masterpiece

    Chris D'souza
    8 Jan 2015 | 3:54 pm
    With so many entertaining movies flying around, it is hard to find one made with the intent of being a legitimately important film. Selma, from director Ava Duvernay, is one biopic that breaks the shackles of entertainment and takes time out to reflect the world back on the audiences. The movie follows Martin Luther King Jr. as he embarks on his campaign to Selma, Alabama, in one of the most vital periods in America, the Civil Rights Movement. He brings his supporters to Selma to stand up for the right to vote without any racial bias in a time full of hate and fear, a time where, from the…

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 149 Beetlejuice

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

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

    11 Jan 2015 | 7:45 pm
    Matt battles the forces of nostalgia to defend the honor of Legend against the mediocre reviews it received at the time, while Mark debates the Lili characters quest-worth. Ridley Scott's Legend is an astounding visual feast the brings to bear the best of the pre-CGI era practical effects. Intended to be a 'live action' Disney-like film ala Snow White, it succeeds. However, its ability to craft like-able characters in its heightened landscapes falls short. But one thing we can all agree on is that the teenage Mia Sara lit the fires of many proto-goth boys back in the 1980s with her black…
  • 146 Top Gun

    5 Jan 2015 | 7:58 pm
    This week we review the Tim Robbins classic Top Gun (yes, Tim Robbins was in Top Gun!... Merlin?... check the credits!) on The Cult of Matt and Mark. A cultural phenomena that encouraged thousands of young men to serve aboard aircraft carriers performing duties far less awesome than flying an F-14 Tomcat. Matt and Mark are of Ebert's opinion on this one, when in flight Top Gun soars, when on the ground, the film crashes and burns. So take a ride in to the danger zone of Cold War era machismo and enjoy.Download: 146 Top Gun
  • 145 The Princess Bride

    29 Dec 2014 | 1:35 pm
    This Barbara Streisand vehicle is even better than seeing Babs live!! ... wait... no? This isn't The Prince of Tides? That was a close one. This week we review the 1987 classic The Princess Bride. A bit of a split review this go 'round, Mark finds the deft care Rob Riener takes with the characters memorable and endearing while Matt lacks the proper nostalgia to truly embrace this quirky and nuanced film. One thing we both can agree on is that it takes a rare individual to seek out a Billy Crystal performance.Download:  145 The Princess Bride

    Rabid Grannies: the most vital Blu-Ray you’ll ever own, I imagine, because who doesn’t want to see old women killing things? I sure do. And if that’s your bag, Troma is bringing you a new 2-disc Blu-Ray/DVD combo for March 10! Along with that, Troma’s also putting out From Asia With Lust Volume 1: Camp/Hitchhike, basically a couple of shorts about rape revenge.

    When we last left Aaron Gillespie’s new comic revitalizing the Chaos character Lady Demon, our protagonist Violet had just discovered that she was back from the dead harboring an evil, violent demon inside her. Revenge fueled the bloodlust, and she was ready and raring to get back at those who killed her, her boyfriend, and her father. In Lady Demon #2, things get a bit more complicated when a few crazy demons begin their attack on Vi; it’s not just the demon inside her that’s raging, but the ones on the outside that threaten to make her life even more of a hell.

  • The Atticus Institute | Movie Review

    23 Jan 2015 | 7:42 am
    The Atticus Institute isn’t found footage – well, not in the sense that some guy is standing around shooting terrible events on home video while everyone else screams at him to help. Instead, it’s a faux-documentary about a fake possession of a woman in a fake institute. Writer/director Chris Sparling fashions the film into a pretty authentic-looking series of interviews with people who experienced the strange things at the Atticus Institute in the 1970s, and it all looks like something you might find on the Discovery Channel during Halloween week, along the lines of a look…
  • Nailbiter Vol. 1: There Will Be Blood | Graphic Novel Review

    Ryne Barber
    22 Jan 2015 | 12:25 pm
    A town of serial killers seems like overkill, something cheesy that a mainstream television show (maybe like The Following?) would develop because it has the potential to lead to a lot of action setpieces and a long-running serialization. But Joshua Williamson’s Nailbiter is anything but corny; his narrative is much darker than expected, and the emphasis on multiple serial killers is just the tip of the iceberg in this mystery. Aided by artist Mike Henderson’s heavy, shadowy paneling, Nailbiter Vol. 1: There Will Be Blood is the start of an intriguing serial serial comic that…

    Since this is the last movie Hayao Miyazaki is making, he’s retiring from movie making, I was expecting the best, but what I got was something less than that. I mean the animation as always was spectacular but the story this time out is rooted firmly in the real world, so to speak. I tend to be more partial to his fantasy-laden plots. The Wind Rises centers on an actual person from history, Jiro Horikoshi, who designed this airplane for World War II. The tale, however, as I understand is fictional, showing how he became inspired by aeronautics and how he met his wife who then died of…

    Sometimes a film comes into your life at the exact moment you need it. And other times it's inconvenient or painful. My grandfather passed away Friday night. When I woke up Saturday morning I turned on the TV to watch TCM. Classic film as emotional therapy has always been a way for me to cope with what life throws at me, both good and bad. What I didn’t expect to see on TCM is exactly what appeared: a movie about a dying grandfather. It was the last 30 minutes of the movie and I wasn’t sure if I should watch it.

    The late silent film Why Be Good? (1929) was considered lost for many years. Not only has it been found but also restored and released on DVD much to the delight of classic film fans across the globe. The film stars Colleen Moore as Pert Kelly. She’s a shopgirl by day and a wild flapper by night. Pert’s reputation as as partier is all smoke and mirrors. She’s a good girl at heart and only wants the appeal the flapper lifestyle provides. Pert has caught the eye of Winthrop Peabody Jr. (Neil Hamilton). He’s mesmerized by her vivacity and beauty but equally perplexed by her reputation.

What I instantly took from this was that Season Two was going to be “different”…
  • The Madeleine Best Movie Awards 2014

    15 Jan 2015 | 7:38 am
    I saw 98 films released in the year 2014. Give or take a few titles. Most of them were pretty whatever, but some of them were pretty great. It’s the middle of January 2015 now, everyone else published their top 10 lists weeks ago, and the Oscar nominations were announced this morning. I think the Oscars are dumb and bad, so here’s my best of 2014 and some super cool awards that I’ve decided these movies deserve. Most Madeleine Movie of 2014: ENEMY (Dir. Denis Villeneuve) It was a pretty good year for doppelgängers. Although I really loved Coherence (which really belongs…

    I’ve only talked briefly of my love of all things D&D in a couple of reviews, but have never really spoken at length about it, never thought I’d really feel the need to since at 45 I’m not into the game anymore, haven’t been for decades, but just a few weeks ago while on Amazon I bumped into what appeared to me to be a new Monster Manual. The release date confirmed it was indeed new. What?! Without hesitation I hit up google, did some detective work and learned the makers of the game created a 5th Edition that started it’s official roll out this past summer.
  • Blu-Ray Review: The Wind Rises (2013, Dir, Hayao Miyazaki)

    Shawn Francis
    8 Dec 2014 | 11:21 am
    Since this is the last movie Hayao Miyazaki is making, he’s retiring from movie making, I was expecting the best, but what I got was something less than that. I mean the animation as always was spectacular but the story this time out is rooted firmly in the real world, so to speak. I tend to be more partial to his fantasy-laden plots. The Wind Rises centers on an actual person from history, Jiro Horikoshi, who designed this airplane for World War II. The tale, however, as I understand is fictional, showing how he became inspired by aeronautics and how he met his wife who then died of…

  • The More the Merrier (1943, George Stevens)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    24 Jan 2015 | 6:03 pm
    The More the Merrier is a wondrous mix of comedy (both slapstick and screwball) and dramatic, war-time romance. Director Stevens is expert at both–that war-time romance angle is as gentle as can be, with Stevens relying heavily on leads Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea to be able to toggle between both. And they do, ably. Arthur and McCrea have spellbinding chemistry in the film. But the film doesn’t open with either of them. It opens with–and stays with–Charles Coburn’s character. He’s in town on business (Merrier’s set in Washington DC during the WWII…
  • The Last Days of Peter Bergmann (2013, Ciaran Cassidy)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    23 Jan 2015 | 7:07 pm
    The Last Days of Peter Bergmann is something of a procedural documentary short. A man, using the alias Peter Bergmann, checks into a hotel in an Irish town. A few days later, he is found dead on a nearby beach. Unable to ascertain his identity, the police use CCTV footage from around town, from the hotel, to try to discover something about the person. Director Cassidy, a few years later, takes that footage, along with interviews of the people who interacted with the man, and cuts together this strange little film. Cassidy weighs it heavy at the end–there’s a reveal of…
  • The Honest Date (2014, Jonah Feingold)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    23 Jan 2015 | 6:27 pm
    The first seventy percent of The Honest Date is reasonably amusing. Director Feingold has his stars–Allyn Morse and David Lowe–bantering, rapid-fire, back and forth, usually about dating mores or pop culture and it works. Lowe is excellent, Morse has maybe one questionable delivery but she’s otherwise really good. They handle all the dialogue and make themselves distinct in body language. Mind you, it’s in a couple two shots and some close-ups. Feingold has a filter on the short, a very rich black and white, and it’s all effective. There’s old timey music…

  • Cross My Heart (1987, Armyan Bernstein)

    Andrew Wickliffe
    21 Jan 2015 | 8:13 am
    Cross My Heart has a significant problem right off. Its gimmick work against the film. The opening scenes establish Annette O’Toole and Martin Short’s leads as they prepare for a date. Each has the help of a second (for exposition’s sake, though it doesn’t make the exposition particularly natural); both actors are appealing, both characters are appealing. The opening scenes set up the viewer knowing the truth about each character, which they plan on hiding from the other. Hence the title. Then the date starts. And O’Toole’s really good. She’s often…

    Having grown up in the '90s and been deep into the hip-hop culture, I have a pretty good sense for those who have a genuine feel for the era. It was a time when hip-hop was at its creative peak from a musical and fashion sense, but also in the way rappers expressed themselves as individuals. Being "real" is at the core of Rick Famuyiwa's kinetic comedy Dope, a fast-paced throwback that is a

    22 Jan 2015 | 3:15 pm
    The first Taken film, which was a surprise hit in 2008, was a gloriously violent and ludicrously silly action romp through Europe, with Neeson's super-agent eliminating numerous Eastern Euro baddies on the way to finding his kidnapped daughter. It's no surprise then that it launched a franchise and various other action vehicles for Neeson but after painful efforts like Unknown, Taken 2 and Non Stop, the novelty of seeing the one time Oscar Schindler kick ass has well and truly worn off.

Norway is eager to own the project and, by extension, the oil itself, but they need American “know how” to train divers to work at depths of up to 500 meters.

Based on the novel “Don’t Point That Thing at Me,” the film finds Depp as Charlie Mortdecai, English art dealer and all-around bumbling scoundrel.

  • Explore a cold and empty void – Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar

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

    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.

As the audience we’re neither with Boney nor Gilpin: if he did it, it’s too obvious. If he’s innocent, also too obvious.

  • Renegade Staff Picks: Favorite Heist Movies

    Shawn S. Lealos
    26 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    One of the genres that remains fun even after over a century of movies is the Heist Movie. Whether it is a con-man movie, a bank heist film, or a full fledged Film Noir, seeing a heist as it comes together is a true joy, and in the right director’s hands, is better than most mysteries in theaters lately. From the days of Alfred Hitchcock, who might be the master of the heist film, to more recent directors and auteurs, there have been many great heist movies in film history. The staff of Renegade Cinema sat down and figured out their favorite heist movies of all time. Check out which…
  • ‘Animal’ Blu-Ray Review (Scream Factory)

    Shawn S. Lealos
    25 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    In the world of CGI, it is rare to find a good horror movie that relies simply on good practical effects. In a world where people will see a movie that dares to put a man in a rubber suit to play the monster and consider it a bad movie, it is rare to see a throwback monster movie. Luckily, there is the independent film scene and there is Scream Factory to give us some of these low budget, practical effects, man in a rubber suit horror movies. Animal is in no way a great movie. However, it is a fun little horror movie by the same production company that brought us Beneath. Just like how…

    Its only January and already it’s been an excellent year for auteur and independent filmmakers. While many new projects by some of our favorite unique filmmakers are upcoming later in the year, there is also much in the way of retrospectives and celebrations regarding some of these talents, or even just a joyous anticipation for some who have been away for too long. It seems that everywhere you look the focus is more on independent and innovative filmmaking more than on the tired old Hollywood blockbuster sequels and reboots – also evidenced by the fact that some of the serious Oscar…

    25 Jan 2015 | 1:40 pm
    It's been a while since Syfy created a decent TV show that can be called watchable. Actually ever since Battlestar Gallactica finished its run we didn't see something that can be called good or even decent. Previously we encountered Defiance which we barely survived its first season while the second was too big of a request. Another show that made a great first impression was Helix but it was only a mirage and we quit on the show after 4 episodes. Ascesion is a completely different story.  Ascesion The first part of the miniseries presented to us an interesting idea where a group of…

    I will admit it prior watching horns I didn't really expected watching it so much. I didn't care for Harry potter didn't see none of the movies, don't care much for Daniel Radcliffe and still here we are. I'm watching something I didn't really want to watch, I didn't even know how or where I got this film from anyway. a while back I saw the trailer for Horns in small glimpses so I didn't really figure what was it supposed to be: a fairy tale or a modern day fantasy. Either way what we had here was a mysterious murder of a young woman that made waves in this small town putting all the focus…

  • A Most Violent Year

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:46 am
    Not to be confused with last year’s A Most Wanted Man, this is A Most Violent Year - a crime drama set in New York, 1981. Oscar Isaac plays a wealthy businessman determined to protect his company and family from the city’s organised crime, without turning to criminality and violence – despite pressure from his protective wife, played by Jessica Chastain. They both excel in their roles, with an intense chemistry between the two in a fairly horrible house. Chastain is a terrifying vision of ’80s ambition, a Lady Macbeth figure from a crime family herself – though…

    This film follows Samuel L Jackson and Ben Affleck on the worst day of their lives since Jackson didn’t win an Oscar and Affleck said yes to Gigli. Doyle (Jackson) and Gavin (Affleck) are both on their way to court, but for very different reasons. Doyle is fighting a custody battle for his kids and Gavin is a lawyer for a top Wall Street law firm. When they’re involved in a minor accident it’s not just their cars that collide, their worlds do too, setting in motion a string of decreasingly plausible events that will change both their lives for ever…or will they?

    From the writer of The Last Exorcism Part II comes Whiplash - the Oscar-nominated story of a young jazz drummer (Miles Teller) and his ruthless teacher (J.K. Simmons). The two leads crash together in style – Simmons is all rage and veins, running his band like Full Metal Jacket‘s Gunnery Sergeant Hartman but with more percussion. Mickey Hart-man. Teller shines as the teen Gene Krupa with breathtaking drumming, and it’s really him playing. But the jazz drumming is more impressive than the repetitive drama, which hits all the usual competition movie beats – it’s…

    Dan Meier
    20 Jan 2015 | 2:13 pm
    Yet another entry into the sub-genre of films about writers trying to decide what to write, The Secret in Their Eyes is a fittingly forgettable title for a long-winded Argentine thriller. Ricardo Darín plays a retired legal investigator, resembling an Argentine Nicolas Cage. He decides to write a novel about an old case that still haunts him 25 years on; that of a woman raped and murdered. The events of the case unfold in flashback, as our protagonist investigates the politically tangled mystery. Soledad Villamil plays his boss and Guillermo Francella his partner, resembling an Argentine…

    A tiny snippet of St. Stephen by the Grateful Dead plays on the radio in the only enjoyable five seconds of Foxcatcher; the true story of John du Pont (Steve Carell), a billionaire wrestling enthusiast who takes Olympic champion Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) under his wing. This Oscar-baiting drama is a deeply unappealing film about some unappealing men playing an unappealing sport; two big guys roll around for a bit and it’s impossible to tell who’s winning. But it’s certainly not the audience, who have to sit through more than two hours of this crap. Denim Tatum…

I mean really, a buff Chris Hemsworth playing a dude who allegedly spends 15+ hours a day on a computer? I doubt Chris Hemsworth even knows how to turn his computer on in real life. Hackers get so good at computers because they spend so much time on computers and no time in the gym. You want to know what a real hacker looks like?

Then, unfortunately it all goes terribly, terribly wrong. Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is that socially awkward everyman with a problem. It’s two weeks to his wedding day and he doesn’t have a best man. Lucky Doug gets a referral to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc. This company has one goal. Giving the perfect best man to guys just like Doug.

    A three-way sex scene in a film is nothing new. We have seen it several times; however, most of the time it’s a MFF combination. You don’t see too many sex scenes involving three men, but you will be seeing one in James Franco’s new movie, I Am Michael. The film, which was directed by Justin Kelly, follows the true story of Michael Glatze. A former gay activist, who went on to deny his homosexuality and become an anti-gay Christian pastor. It’s definitely a sensitive subject, and the new stills released from the film are already getting a lot of attention on the web.

It’s story wasn’t great, but the horror-aspect the film was certainly effective with the right kinds of jump scares and silent scenes. Shortly after The Strangers released in theaters, after being delayed from its initial 2007 release date, Rogue Pictures confirmed they would be making a sequel, The Strangers: Part II. That film never released. It was supposed to be written by Bertino and directed by Laurent Briet, but Relativity decided…

    20th Century Fox has one of the most successful comic book franchises in film right now with X-Men, and its many spinoffs, and now they’re looking to make the jump to television. DC Comics currently leads the TV world with Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, and Constantine, with half a dozen more TV shows on the way, but Marvel is starting to make headway with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and their mid-season show, Agent Carter. There are also those four Netflix shows, but those won’t come for awhile. Now, Fox is looking to get into the market with a show set in the X-Men universe. This has been…
  • ‘Witcher 1 and 2′ will not be remastered for PS4, Xbox One

    26 Jan 2015 | 10:18 am
    The biggest trend in video games right now is remastering games from previous console generations–that span from one year old to a decade old–on to the new consoles Xbox One and PS4. It seems like every week there’s another announcement of yet another remaster, but there are a few series and studios that have held out. One of those studios is CD Projekt Red and one of those series is The Witcher. “That would be cool,” senior gameplay designer Damien Monnier told PlayStation Access at a recent hands-on event about potentially remastering The Witcher 1 and The…

    Harry Potter and now-known indie film star Emma Watson has been cast in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast movie. If you think this is a case of deja vu and that you’ve heard this news before, you have… sort of. Watson was previously attached to play Belle in Guillermo del Toro‘s live-action Beauty and the Beast over at Warner Bros., but last summer, del Toro dropped the project and subsequently gave Disney permission to hire Watson as their Belle. They have now done that. She broke the news on Facebook to her tens of millions of fans: “I’m finally…
  • Hey Disneyland, get rid of Mad T Party and add Mos Eisley Cantina instead!

    25 Jan 2015 | 4:27 pm
    I miss ElecTRONica. It was the best nightlife event Disneyland has ever offered, and, sadly, it was replaced with the Mad T Party after Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland made a boatload of money. Back in 2010, Disney wanted to create some sort of tie-in to Joseph Kosinski‘s TRON: Legacy at Disneyland so there implemented the nighttime event ElecTRONica in the backlot of Hollywood Land in California Adventure. It had music, food, dancing, drinks–TRON-like alcoholic drinks–and Flynn’s arcade. It was awesome! Every Friday night people, especially those with annual…

  • pk (2014) - Review

    Mansi Dutta
    24 Dec 2014 | 9:45 am
    pk follows director Rajkumar Hirani's signature template - formulaic, longish, with the regular song and dance routine (which by the way doesn't break the pace), homing in on a social message that rings with the masses. This time Hirani makes a commentary on the religious beliefs that mold our identity as individuals. The premise isn't much of a surprise after the recently-released religious satire OMG. But Hirani narrates his story in the most gripping, entertaining way. The humor is mostly subtle, dialogues incisive and with Aamir Khan's perfect timings, pk is easily one of the better films…
  • Happy Ending (2014) - Review

    21 Nov 2014 | 7:23 am
    Happy Ending takes a jibe at the cheesy romcoms, breaking away from the rhetoric at times while still giving in to the same rhetoric many a times. Despite the aberrations, it's the kind of film I wouldn't mind watching again. It's witty, often refreshing and effortlessly manages to keep you involved.I Hate Luv Storys tried a similar spin, spoofing romcoms, but failed miserably. It's too insignificant to even merit a comparison with this one.Saif Ali Khan here is pitch-perfect as Yudi. He balances minimal dialogues just as well as letting expressions take over, when required. Most times, he…

    The tremendously skilled Vishal Bhardwaj packs a terrific punch with Haider. His technical precision is palpable in every frame. I had no reason to complain about the length. He creates and builds upon every character, every scene with hearty indulgence, letting us soak up and savor every bit of it.How he adapts this Shakespearean family drama to tell the story of Kashmir, adds a feather to his perfected storytelling!His poetic rendition and minimalistic tone added to the overall impact. Bhardwaj's direction judiciously and compellingly emphasized reaction over action, which helped connect…
  • Khoobsurat (2014) Review

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

    Hey, you over there. Don’t bother. Have you seen Lap Dance? If not, then don’t. There are plenty of bad movies out there, and I can certainly think of a few that were far worse than this one. Saying that, this isn’t a whole lot better. Don’t let the IMDb rating (6.2) fool you. This isn’t good entertainment (for reasons I’m about to explore), and despite your initial impressions, it doesn’t really have a message worth telling either. Anyway, let’s get down to business. Here are four really good reasons not to dance with Lap Dance. 1. It’s…

    It’s always fun to play on well-populated, competitive servers. Usually you end up with a bit of a lop-sided team, and that’s exactly what happens here (why the hell are there so many snipers on my team?). Anyway, this was still a lot of fun, and I did wind up on the better team for the second round, so that was cool. This was a bit of a shorter sessions compared to my last one, thus why it’s not quite as long. The post Team Fortress 2 – Highlights from December 13, 2014 appeared first on AS Movies & Games.

    This is probably the game I sunk the most time into in 2014, especially during the summer. I have a bit of a weakness for the Tony Hawk series, and since this is a remake of some the better, earlier games, there just wasn’t any keeping myself away from it. Suffice to say, I finished all the goals and unlocked everything. In this video, you’ll see me make a reasonably big combo. I am certainly capable of doing much bigger combos, but the line is pretty cool so I’m posting anyway. The post Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD – Warehouse 70,000 Point Combo appeared first on…

    This certainly wasn’t Christmas 2014. It was 2012, I’m pretty sure. The AV Famicom was only out for a few years, between 1993 and 1995. It has better audio and better graphics compared to the original. I still have the original Famicom too, but I don’t have an RF cable for it. Thus why I decided I wanted the AV Famicom. I decided to speed up this video because I didn’t think it was terribly interesting. However, it wasn’t quite as bad as I had originally thought. The scissors bit makes me laugh.

    Although many are still reeling from the aftershocks of the Sony hacking scandal, the growth of the cybercrime era had actually reached red alert long before the North Koreans. It is quite frightening to imagine how a person could be as deadly as a nuclear weapon with just one click of a keyboard, and it remains a problem unresolved by international governments. As always, Hollywood’s part on this is to jump on the bandwagon, establishing a new genre of its own with collective bits of movie magic in order to turn in easy money for film studios.

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

Instead, they prefer time alone or with a couple of their closest friends with whom they share a great deal of the same ideals. Octopuses are highly complex characters.

    Movie making may lose its sheen for female creatives — a recent headcount in Hollywood shows things have become worse for those trying for top jobs in the last 17 years. But how did this happen, and can things get better? CONRAD EMMETT speaks to two very different commentators on the industry to find out. There are many age-old stories that get told time and again in Hollywood. Boy gets girl. The hero’s journey. And, of course… The absent woman.

    Things are starting to look good for the third Star Trek film… I think most of us held our collective breaths as Trek 1 & 2 producer and co-scribe Roberto Orci was suddenly elevated to director for the new movie (as his first film), only to leave the chair just as quick. Then Fast and the Furious director Justin Lin was appointed. Some will have had their problems with that — I for one don’t because, simply, I think Star Trek 3 will be better if it keeps the commercial mindset of its predecessors. Now Simon Pegg is becoming a co-writer, alongside a chap called Doug…
  • The Huntsman’s possible new director is pointing to a worrying new trend in Hollywood

    21 Jan 2015 | 1:36 am
    If the Schmoes Know site is correct, we may know who is replacing director Frank Darabont in the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel — and for me it points to a strange new trend in big budget pictures. A worrying one at that. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is apparently in talks to be the new director for The Huntsman (CAVEAT EMPTOR — it is a “because… sources” story, although to be fair it kind of has to be at this stage). Nicolas-Troyan was the undoubted VFX wizard behind the first film. Indeed, a with limp script and poor direction, he was the unnamed star of that…
  • Because… sources. Why I think some online movie “journalism” is not doing the web any favours.

    20 Jan 2015 | 3:27 am
    Sometimes Latino Review get things right, sometimes wrong, but a recent story — whether true or not — really doesn’t do online journalism any favours. The story, The Real Reason for Tom Hardy’s Exit From Suicide Squad, is not actually typical of Latino Review stories. Normally, they put their money where their mouth is. If they hear Bradley Cooper is going to be Rocket Raccoon in Guardians of the Galaxy (like they did), they run the risk and publish. If Bradley Cooper turned out not to have taken on Rocket Raccoon, then they’d have looked pretty stupid. But…

    When you have a measly job holding a sign alongside a hobo who does the exact same thing on the holidays, it’s safe to assume that your pride has taken a hike a long time ago. When you begin seeking financial advice from your homeless co-worker you can now officially call yourself insane. Christmas doesn’t just bring out the joy in people, it also brings out our sheer desperate need for survival and craziness out of our hearts.

    Doug's Film Reviews

  • Exodus: Gods and Kings

    21 Jan 2015 | 12:31 pm
    Exodus: Gods and Kings ★1/2    Ridley Scott's "Exodus: Gods and Kings," a film whose subject matter has been beaten to death over the course of cinema history, provides nothing remotely fresh to the story of Moses, and seems intent on fashioning a Hollywood blockbuster, around a box-office star in Christian Bale, than anything else. One look at the trailer, and you may have just seen the sum of the picture's aim for yourself.    As one might expect, the narrative is relatively consistent with that of the Old Testament, except of course, a minuscule alteration here…
  • Home on the Range

    13 Jan 2015 | 6:19 pm
    Home on the Range     There is something definably overpowering in Disney's 2004 animated film, entitled "Home on the Range." If you have ever seen the sitcom, aptly named, "Roseanne," then you surely can recall the coarse, and utterly domineering voice of its leading actress, Roseanne Barr, whose vocalization is an ill-mannered concoction of an opera singer, and a garbage disposal.    Although this is not the sole inadequacy to grace our presence, I could not help but to fixate on this error of judgement, which consistently places this film in a position of failure.
  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

    8 Jan 2015 | 7:50 pm
    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 ★1/2    For what it's worth, the latest installment of the "Hunger Games" series of films has become nothing more than an exhibition for political thought and conviction. For, that is essentially what is in debate: rebels fighting for democracy--and the elitists--struggling to maintain communist (or if you prefer the term fascist) control over a population of individuals, deprived of all financial value. Does this premise ring any bells?    The plot, in its most primitive design, can be described as a string of "moves and…
  • Jersey Boys

    6 Jan 2015 | 2:41 pm
    Jersey Boys     Clint Eastwood's "Jersey Boys", is a poor, and tedious I might add, imitation of Martin Scorsese's picture, entitled "Goodfellas." There are an innumerable amount of resemblances, which if you have seen the latter film, will jump off the screen, and subdue you into an indefatigable state of déjà vu. Perhaps Mr. Eastwood has become a victim of his own subconscious.    No matter how the result was executed, it was, and "Jersey Boys," essentially depicts the rise, and the subsequent fall, of the very popular 1960s foursome, aptly named, The Four…

Over this span of a little more than a decade, Peter Jackson has not only become a household name, but he has earned respect worldwide for his interpretation of some of the finest, and most influential, literature to ever be written.    Yet, in the latest installment,…

  • The Film Critics Who Turned to Filmmaking

    Mark Harrison
    26 Jan 2015 | 6:59 pm
    From the Pudsey The Dog movie to Joe Cornish and Roger Ebert, what happens when critics make films themselves? Feature Arts critics tend to get a rough time of it in the movies. Even looking at this year's awards season hopefuls, Birdman casts a wonderfully scabrous Lindsay Duncan as a theatre critic who is determined to kill the hero's play, and Mr. Turner presents John Ruskin as a lisping, pretentious fop, a representation that has led some to take mild umbrage. To look even further back, at Ratatouille's sneering Anton Ego, or Lady In The Water's film-savvy 'straw critic', or Theatre Of…

  • Escape by Danila Tkachenko

    Bizarre Culture
    13 Jan 2015 | 2:20 pm
     “Man does not need society at all, it’s the society that needs man. Society is a forced measure of protection and survival. Unlike a gregarious animal, man must live alone – in nature among animals, plants and in contact with them.” – Andrey Tarkovsky. Young photographer Danila Tkachenko uses the above quote to start his book ‘Escape’, which documents the life of people who have decided to escape from the social world and live alone in nature, far away from civilization. Danila calls them ‘Escapers,’ or men who have turned their backs on society to live alone as…

    Bizarre Culture
    9 Jan 2015 | 10:04 pm
    Erriadh, a small village on the island of Djerba, Tunisia, was transformed into a vibrant ‘open-air museum’ as a destination for one of the most vibrant and ambitious street art project ever hosted. The Djerbahood project invited 150 street artists from 30 countries to live and work in the community, using the walls of the houses in the village as canvas. Curated by Tunisian artist and gallery owner Mehdi Ben Cheikh after the success of his “Tour Paris 13” project, Djerbahood reinvigorates and recharacterizes an old historic village. The project serves to promote…
  • Film Review: The Interview

    Bizarre Culture
    2 Jan 2015 | 3:54 pm
    This will be a short review, since The Interview has already taken more internet space than it deserves. James Franco and Seth Rogen team up again after creating two successful movies: last year’s This Is The End, and Pineapple Express (2008). It’s safe to say that The Interview is an unsubtle, painful and shallow attempt at satirical comedy – a collapsed self-parody.  James Franco plays a talk show host, Dave Skylark, who presents a celebrity gossip show priding itself on revealing the insipid secrets of the Hollywood elite, including revealing Nicki Minaj’s…

    30 Dec 2014 | 4:51 am
    2014 has been a great year for film, rewarding cinephiles with more memorable cinematic experiences than they have been treated to in a good few years. This year has seen seasoned filmmakers like Wes Anderson and Jonathon Glazer produce some of their best work, while some of the years’ most impressive releases have come from exciting new directors such as Dan Gilroy and Jennifer Kent. We’ve also witnessed an exciting change from the high-budget end of the cinematic spectrum. As we’ve come to understand, blockbuster selections aren’t usually spectacular works or even original to boot.

  • MOVIE REVIEW: Killers

    Felix Felicis
    25 Jan 2015 | 9:51 pm
    This is not a movie for everyone. This film won’t satisfy if you’re looking for cheap thrills and it won’t pander to expectations. Killers is a brutal reflection of society’s fetishization of violence and it’ll leave you curled in the fetal position, spooning a fifth of tequila, after it’s had its way with you. Killers is a cut above, and far beyond, anything I could’ve expected. Horrifying psychological thrillers have a new Sheriff in town, and the best of them elevate the gruesome truth of the depths of human depravity to an art form. This movie? This movie is ART. The film…
  • MOVIE REVIEW: Everly

    25 Jan 2015 | 3:07 pm
    I have no problem saying director Joe Lynch has officially made his best film to date with EVERLY. WRONG TURN 2 was a solid start (and the best in the series) and even though we’ve only seen the producer’s cut of KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM, it’s still pretty badass. Each of his three feature films have been distinctly different and he can easily slither through genres. Most directors never get the luxury, they find themselves stuck doing the same thing over and over again. EVERLY is a single location action film with a female lead and he couldn’t have found a better actress…

  • MOVIE REVIEW: The Shoot

    25 Jan 2015 | 2:21 pm
    A film might not always grab your attention right out of the gate. You might even be expecting one thing and get something entirely different. After reading a description of the independent feature THE SHOOT, I was expecting it to be more of a horror thriller. Instead, it plays out more like a crime film injected with a healthy dose of humor. Husband and wife team of John Adams and Toby Poser co-directed, co-produced, and starred together in the picture. They’ve carved their way by making their films on a limited budget and proudly make their films as if it were a family affair.

    We're nerds, we like to argue. One of the most hotly debated topics in the MCU without a doubt is whether or not Loki’s Scepter is an Infinity Stone, more specifically the Mind Stone. It had almost become a non-issue until the brain trust over at Marvel Studios marketing decided to drop it into the Infinity War teaser in October and surround it with other known Infinity Stones. Essentially giving fanboys months worth of material to argue over. Most outlets, including us, jumped to the conclusion that it of course was an Infinity Stone given the context and we left it at that. But after the…

    The debate surrounding Iron Fist’s race in the MCU is not new. There’s clamoring on both sides for a fresh new look at Danny Rand or for accurate representation from the comics. And to be fair, both sides have equally valid arguments that boil down to three basic points on either end. Arguments for Iron Fist being an Asian actor The first and most obvious point is the racial diversity in the MCU. In order to examine why people would want an Asian actor in the role, we should first look at why Danny Rand was first created as Caucasian in the first place. The Iron Fist was created around…

    Ah Ant-Man. The black sheep of Marvel Studios. The product of what was once the geekiest and most exciting creative pairing, only to be stifled by creative divorce. Never have we seen a modern comic book movie with this amount of baggage. It had so much baggage that it came to a point wherein people were wondering if it still made sense to make this film, if it was still worth pursuing. It is after all a film about a superhero who shrinks and communicates with ants. At least Guardians had 5 misfits who shared the burden of possibly being a poor sell. This one has it tough.

    Irish nationalists plot to rob the supposedly impenetrable Bank of England at the turn of the last century in the 1960 caper flick The Day They Robbed the Bank of England. The brainchild of a man known only as O’Shea (Hugh Griffith), the robbery is less about the money than the potential political ends; as O’Shea says, “£160,000 is a matter for the police, but one million pounds is a political offensive.” His role in the heist is limited, however, with the break-in itself to be carried out by Irish-American import Charles Norgate (Aldo Ray) and a handful of Irishmen,…

    Emma Watson is still hard at work on her HeForShe gender equality campaign, and she and her colleagues have now extended it into its next phase, called IMPACT 10x10x10.

    The Vampire Diaries season 6, episode 12 looks like it’s going to be good. We’ve posted the preview and synopsis below for you! Tonight’s episode, (“Woke Up With a Monster”) was intense.

However, in the preview below, Stefan says the blood sped up the man’s cancer, and then you see the man at someone’s window . . . so it looks like he’s a vampire? Or what do you think?

They agree to let a film crew document her struggle with dementia. Shit gets bonkers. My first impression when starting this movie up was oh boy; possession, found footage, and direct to video. The fucking triumvirate of getting 45 minutes into a movie, realizing it's god awful, but being too far in to turn it off. Twenty minutes in I was impressed that not once had they used…

I’m a huge fan of Doug Trumbull (and apparently George Lucas was too, and tried to get him to work on Star Wars, but ended up getting his dad, Donald Trumbull, instead), but the effects in this movie are so flat. Everything is overlit, and the framing is very similar to TV – not cinematic at all. It reminds me a LOT of classic Star Trek episodes – in lighting, in framing, in color palettes… it’s fake, and I cannot suspend disbelief. It’s surprising how so much of the same…
