    Whenever I watch found footage horror movies, I hope for a scene where the ghost/creature/whatever suddenly grabs the camera and starts shooting its own footage. Because if you’re stupid enough to continue recording when crap hits the fan, you deserve to die horribly and with better cinematography.

    BBC America’s hit "Orphan Black" has the kind of brilliant what-if premise that instantly appeals to fans of the sci-fi genre: what if you weren’t as unique as a snowflake? What if there were others who looked exactly like you? In the series premiere, Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) saw a mirror image of herself jump in front of a train. With a life she needed to escape in a position where it could be easily put behind her, Sarah took the identity of her dead doppelganger Beth, and tried to slip into the shoes of a cop who had so much drama on her plate that she jumped in front of a…

(You may or may not remember his fevered musical "Romance And Cigarettes," which opened with James Gandolfini singing an Englebert Humperdink hit while garbage men danced behind him.) His new picture, "Fading Gigolo," in which Turturro also plays the title role—a fellow floridly named Fioravante—is packed with his signature soulful eccentricity from the ostensibly ridiculous premise down.It isn’t only that Woody Allen…

But in between the writing and the shooting and the wrangling of a real, live Hulk (I’m assuming that was the real Hulk, right?), he also shot Much Ado About Nothing on his days off.

In the early months of 2012, Whedon’s screenplay for In Your Eyes was being shot in New Hampshire. Not by Whedon, mind you, but by Brin Hill – and before you say, “Who?” Hill is known mostly for…

Good news follows her down the street and into an alley where bad news finds her. She’s knocked unconscious, and her pregnant stomach is savagely attacked by someone with a brick, and it’s exactly as shocking and uncomfortable a scene as you’d expect.

    Tribeca Film Festival Roman Polanski‘s Venus in Fur is a film haunted by an epigraph. It’s a quotation from the apocryphal Book of Judith, used first by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch in his similarly titled 1870 novel and later by David Ives in his play, from which this film is directly adapted. It goes something like this: “The Lord hath smitten him and delivered him into the hands of a woman.” The biblical context is the slaying of the Babylonian general Holofernes, whose unfortunate drunken stupor made him easy prey for the knife of the Jewish hero. Polanski’s…

  • 21 '80s Movies That Define a Decade: Going Back to the Future

    Joel D Amos
    18 Apr 2014 | 12:53 pm
    When people talk about '80s movies, oftentimes it can be seen as a negative connotation. But with the synthesizer soundtracks, cheesy lines and over the top hair and make-up… it is honestly warranted. But, there are '80s movies that define the decade and show that it was actually quite a fruitful time for film. Many have in fact gone down in history as some of the best movies of all time, regardless of their era. Watch Blade Runner online or even read these The Breakfast Club quotes and it is easy to see that Hollywood made quite a few fantastic films in the decade of decadence. We present…
  • How to Train Your Dragon 2 Clip: Is That Quidditch?

    Joel D Amos
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:46 am
    How to Train Your Dragon 2 has released a clip and it features a game that has the entire village all sorts of excited. It features some of our favorite characters (such as Astrid) riding their dragons and grabbing sheep in the air and trying to get them in a hole to score points. Kind of sounds like Quidditch, no? How to Train Your Dragon 2 Games Clip As teased in that How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer, the film picks up where the original left off with Hiccup and Toothless’ friendship inspiring a new era of peace between humans and dragons. But, when an evil man named Drago cultivates a…
  • Gone Girl Poster: Search For "Amazing Amy"

    Joel D Amos
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:14 am
    The first poster for Gone Girl has arrived, hot on the heels of that sizzling Gone Girl trailer that premiered earlier this week.  Gone Girl stars Ben Affleck as a husband whose wife (Rosamund Pike) has gone missing. At first the community rallies around him as they scour the area looking for her. Then, police start to focus their investigation on Affleck. Is he a suspect?  With David Fincher directing (Watch Fight Club online to get a feeling for this guy's power) a story like this, prepare to be dazzled.  And you toss in the powerful book by Gillian Flynn (who thankfully also…

    18 Apr 2014 | 10:11 am
    Godzilla has released a new featurette that introduces the world to the film's director, Gareth Edwards. Edwards is the man behind the monster and his passion for the project and bringing the classic movie monster to the 21st century is palpable.  Godzilla Featurette: Meet the Director Godzilla debuts May 16 and features Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen.   We also appreciate, as teased in this Godzilla trailer, that the film clearly nods to the original Japanese films from which it is based. We even get into the origins of the large lizard (is it safe to call him…

  • Woman in the Moon

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

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

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

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

    Get ready for more odd, exciting, intriguing cinema to catch this fall, as Drafthouse Films has confirmed release dates (via BoxOfficeMojo) for a number of their 2014 films. The doc The Final Member just opened today, and they have Borgman, Nothing Bad Can Happen and Mood Indigo set for the summer. After that, they just scheduled Ari Folman's half-animated mind-trip sci-fi film The Congress (starring Robin Wright as seen in the teaser photo) for August 29th late in the summer. Dog Day Afternoon doc The Dog will also be released in early August. Drafthouse Films has four additional films set…

Tarantino was also said to be directing and picking the cast for this special event that will not be recorded or broadcast to the public, and Deadline has confirmed (complete with a tweet from Film Independent) that Samuel L. Jackson will yet again collaborate with his Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained director for some sort of role in the reading. We're not sure who else…

    "This seems to only be happening to gay men." Coming next month is one of those films that HBO makes that seems to belong on the big screen, but is hitting cable instead. The Normal Heart is directed by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy and follows Mark Ruffalo as Ned Weeks, a man who witnesses first-hand the mysterious disease that became known as AIDS as it claims the lives of many in his gay community. Weeks is looking for answers with the help of Dr. Emma Brookner (Julia Roberts), a paraplegic physician who treats several of the earliest victims. Now a full trailer has arrived, and this looks…
  • 'Glengarry Glen Ross' Has New Life in 'Wolf of Wall Street' Style Trailer

    In case you didn't know, The Wolf of Wall Street is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD, so if three hours in a movie theater was just too much to enjoy this Martin Scorsese directed masterpiece (my favorite film of 2013), now you can enjoy in the comfort of your home. Previously, we highlighted a great trailer mash-up that turned It's a Wonderful Life into The Wolf of Bedford Falls. Now another fantastic business-based drama gets the same treatment with footage of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross being edited together in the same style as the initial teaser trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street.

  • First Images From Ryan Gosling’s Directorial Debut ‘Lost River’

    Russ Fischer
    18 Apr 2014 | 4:00 pm
    Ryan Gosling spent some of the last year making his first feature as a director. Originally called How to Catch a Monster, the film is now called Lost River, and is set for the Un Certain Regard sidebar at Cannes. That’s the place where films that are either the product of newcomers to Cannes, or that are a little more unusual than the typical Competition titles. So that tells us something right there. This film features Christina Hendricks as Billy, “a single mother of two who is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road…

      Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we go back to the Korengal Valley, have a kid or two, consider Amanda Palmer’s celebrity, get bitten by a hipster, and head into the Australian outback with Agent Smith.

  • ‘LFO’ Trailer: A Man Manipulates Others With Sound

    Russ Fischer
    18 Apr 2014 | 2:30 pm
    Hypnotism is a pretty classic concept in films, especially when it is used to change peoples’ behavior, at times against their will. But the strange Swedish sci-fi thriller LFO takes it a step further — here, a man finds he can use sound to influence the people around him. And then he pushes the concept a little too far. The first LFO trailer (kinda) shows how. This trailer is not new, but we haven’t featured it in the past. With Dark Sky Films banner setting a fall 2014 theatrical release date, with Elijah Wood’s company SpectreVision as exec producers and…
  • ‘Two Days, One Night’ Trailer: Marion Cotillard Stars for ‘The Kid With a Bike’ Directors

    Russ Fischer
    18 Apr 2014 | 2:00 pm
    The Kid With a Bike, the last film from sibling directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, was one of the best films of 2011, and will probably end up standing as one of the best films of the decade. So we’d be excited at the prospect of any new film from the brothers. The fact that their new movie, Two Days, One Night, stars Marion Cotillard is just a lovely bonus. The film will premiere at Cannes next month, and the first new Dardenne Brothers trailer film is below. In the film, Cotillard plays woman who, in one weekend, must save her own job by convincing her colleagues to…

    Take one part Lynchian weirdness, one part Polanski paranoia, toss in a hefty dose of J-Horror, mix 'em and cook 'em in a pot like gumbo, as the noted American poet Ice Cube once said, add just a smidgen of Darby O'Gill and the Little People for flavor, and you have Ivan Kavanagh's Gaelic scare-fest, The Canal. Okay, so that might not be entirely accurate, but you get the idea. And if you don't, the idea is: that's a whole lot of shit crammed in there. To be fair, it tastes much better than it has any right to, but it still doesn't congeal to form a cohesive whole. In addition to the tonal…

    The sequel to the Spider-Man reboot sees Marc Webb returning to the director's chair and, ultimately, using the same tone and a very similar structure to that of the original, even though there are more subplots to deal with in this new installment. Kicking off with a couple of sequences driven by action and intensity, the movie eventually takes time to develop some of the character conflicts that emerged in the first one, as well as to add other dilemmas related to Oscorp and the investigation once led by Peter Parker's deceased father, Richard. The first movie made emphasis on the…

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

You could probably even pinpoint the difference in our ratings without worry of going very far afield. While we didn’t love the first film, we didn’t hate it either, and it had some fun moments. This one didn’t live up to even that, and left us both pretty disappointed, although it had a few positives, despite the generally wild and crazy, special-effects-centric effort that it was.

    On July 18th, the sequel to Planes is hitting theaters, and Planes: Fire and Rescue already demonstrates a lot of Pixar‘s best qualities, and that’s just in the trailer. Not everyone loved the Cars sequel, and I have to admit that I’m more open to the Bond-esque genre than your average movie-goer, but I think you have to at least appreciate the effort to try to do something worthwhile with a sequel. Pixar could have just tooled around Radiator Springs, with just about any hokey plot their dart happened to hit, and slapped together another race to win. Instead, they tried to…
  • Dick Van Dyke Show – Classic Mary Tyler Moore Episodes DVD Review

    Marc Eastman
    12 Apr 2014 | 7:22 am
    The idea of classic television “holding up over time” is something that eventually loses meaning, or at least has to be qualified. If you go back far enough, none of them really manage a serious appeal to young enough audiences, but some of them are nevertheless wonderfully watchable to any age, and any generation. The Dick Van Dyke Show is one such show, and that is largely the result of it really being so far ahead of its time. For all that it occasionally leans too far into the “zany” category (as an example, I Love Lucy, I think, does not actually survive beyond…

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

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

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

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

However exciting the prospect of bringing all those great actors on screen it's what's happening behind the camera that has me incredibly interested, the return of Bryan Singer. You might be asking why that's important, well that's easy. He directed and X-Men and X-Men 2....Visit…

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:59 pm
    Who wouldn't be excited or at least extremely interested in a new trailer for a David Fincher film? Do you really need me to reel off a list of films he's directed? Well let me give you the highlights - Alien3, oh come on now, it's not that bad; Se7en; The Game; Fight Club; Zodiac; The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; The Social Network; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and House of Cards. So if you didn't realise how good a director he was before then you probably won't be reading this article or watching his next film, but...Visit Filmstalker for the full story.

  • Haggis' Third Person trailer

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:50 pm
    I like Paul Haggis' work, not because of his last name but because of his talent and some of the films he's written and/or directed - Crash (Filmstalker review), Million Dollar Baby, Casino Royale (Filmstalker review), Flags of Our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, The Next Three Days (Filmstalker review). Some of his work is exceptional and he really can capture so many emotional aspects of real people and put them on the page or bring them through the camera, if they are there in the performance. Plus he can write thrillers and he can write them well. So I'm...Visit Filmstalker for the full…
  • The Zero Theorem

    10 Apr 2014 | 1:45 am
    I've been holding off on this review for Terry Gilliam's latest film The Zero Theorem for a number of reasons. The most prominent is that I've just not been sure how to write it and put in words what I thought of the film, the other is that there are so many other reviews with strong opinions stating what they say the film is about, and for those reasons I wanted a little distance from the film and the experience before I decided what I was going to say. A Terry Gilliam film is no small thing, and that's why...Visit Filmstalker for the full story. Restricted feeds to protect content.
  • Is Television overtaking Cinema?

    7 Apr 2014 | 2:15 am
    The question has been asked for some time now and every year seems to be coming to the fore more and more and being posed in different ways. Is television overtaking cinema? Is it producing better quality and more interesting stories than cinema can hope to deliver? Is it a better return for studios and production companies? I know I’m watching more television shows than I ever have and I’m finding a lot more gratification from them than I am from many films I’m seeing, but seeing a great thriller in those two hours on a big screen or a...Visit Filmstalker for the full story.

  • 'Transcendence' to Trail 'Rio,' 'Captain America' Over Easter

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

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

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

    In a strange turn of events, Rio 2 took first place at the box office on Friday, but fell back to second place for the three-day weekend. Chalk this up to nice weather throughout most of the country, which kept family audiences away from the multiplexes on Saturday.As a result, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was able to narrowly hold on to the top spot for the second-straight weekend. The superhero sequel added $41.3 million, which was off 57 percent from its debut. That's about on par...

    Rio 2 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier were neck-and-neck on Friday, though it looks like the weekend is going to the birds.Playing at 3,948 locations, Rio 2 took the top spot on Friday with $12 million. That's an improvement over the first Rio, which earned $10.3 million on opening day back in 2011. For the weekend, Rio 2 will take the top spot with at least $45 million.Captain America wasn't far behind with $11.9 million. That's a steep 68 percent drop from last Friday; in comparis...

  • New on DVD and Blu-ray, April 18

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

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

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

  • 'Watermark' review: Soak up the gorgeous visuals

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

    Peter Hartlaub
    17 Apr 2014 | 11:36 am
    "The Railway Man" begins with bumbling Colin Firth, bemused Nicole Kidman and a romance on a train - the kind of witty love-at-first-sight meeting that the actors might have milked into an entire movie a decade or two ago. Australian director Jonathan Teplitzky's mystery/drama focuses heavily on the torture and recovery themes in Eric Lomax's 1995 autobiographical novel. Eric (Firth) is a retired World War II veteran in the early 1980s, and he has a savant-like knowledge of English railways and military history. [...] while Firth's performance is the most memorable, Kidman's believability as…

    Allison Finkel
    18 Apr 2014 | 5:30 am
    By David Caplan Hip hop has influenced a generation of poets coming to prominence, poets I call “The Inheritors of Hip Hop.” Signaling how the music serves as a shared experience and inspiration, they  mention performers and songs as well as anecdotes from the genre’s development and the artists’ lives, while epigraphs and titles quote songs. The influence of hip hop can be heard in the work of many poets including (but certainly not limited to): Kevin Coval, Erica Dawson, LaTasha N.

    By David Yamane The American religious landscape is ever changing. The rise of religious nones, the spiritual not religious, thoughtful spirituality, the emerging church, online religion, megachurches, and on and on. As a sociologist of religion who specializes in Roman Catholicism, it is easy to feel old-fashioned in the face of so much novelty. But in its typically deliberate way, the original megachurch in America continues to make its mark on the religious landscape. Easter Vigil Baptism, April 11, 2009.

    By Johanna Slivinske Think for a moment, back to when you were a teenager. What were you like? What did you enjoy doing? In what did you excel? The positive activities in which we partake in adolescence shape our adult lives. In my case, playing the clarinet in band and competing in extemporaneous speaking on the speech team molded me the most, and became my personal strengths. Music and the creative arts continue to influence my writing and speaking, and many of these facets of my professional life can be traced back to strengths developed and built upon in my youth. Another strength was the…

    The Shape of Night (Nakamuro Noboru, 1964). DB here: I didn’t plan it that way, but it turns out that a great many films I saw at this year’s Hong Kong International Film Festival would have to be categorized as genre pictures. Not, admittedly, Shu Kei’s episode of Beautiful 2014, which interweaves flashbacks and erotic reveries in a purely poetic fashion. And not Tsai Ming-liang’s “sequel” to Walker (2012, made for HKIFF), called, whimsically, Journey to the West. Here again, Lee Kang-sheng, robed as a Buddhist monk, steps slowly through landscapes,…

When Harry, the last of the great sleuthing Crumbs–and the last person in the firm to ever get an assignment–finally gets a shot at a frontpage kidnapping, it’s only because his beady-eyed boss, Eliot Draisen (Jeffrey Jones), doesn’t wantthe case solved. At stake is the gorgeous daughter of multi-millionaire P.J. Downing, a $10 million ransom, and Eliot’s mistress (Annie…

The Ten Commandments (1956) one of the classiest bible adaptations, this film starring Charlton Heston as Moses won an Oscar for special effects and contains many iconic scenes that are parodied and referenced up until today.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRGhOcnmChI The Bible (2013) This 10 hour mini series had great…

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

    Wes Anderson's version of a noir film - complete with MacGuffin - but losing none of director's meticulous attention to detail, lovingly-crafted set design or deep breadth of character.

The story - a mix of modern-day government interference (S.H.I.E.L.D. is the like the NSA kicked up to 11 in the movie) but still leading back the Captain's history - that is WWII and Hydra.

    Nowadays, reality television has become mostly about women fighting each other. Long gone are the days when reality shows were fun experiments that sometimes had a darker underlying critique of society as a whole. Or are they? Fox seems to have gotten a lock on the weird societal experiment-types of reality shows; first with “Joe Millionaire” and now with the upcoming “I Wanna Marry ‘Harry.’” I think you can guess the premise just from the title alone. A large amount of women are vying for the chance to marry someone they think is Prince Harry. The…

    A school in Lincoln, Neb. is under fire after sending fifth graders home with a pamphlet for how to deal with bullies. It was obviously well-intentioned, but it'd be difficult to dream up worse advice. For example: Treat the person who is being mean as if he is trying to help you: No matter how insulting or mean they may sound, be grateful and think they really care about you. Do not verbally defend yourself. Do not tell on bullies: The number one reason bullies hate their victims, is because the victims tell on them. Telling makes the bully want to retaliate.

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

    If you’re as enthused about movies and cinema as I am, then you probably find yourself at the local movie theater a half-dozen or more times each month. Skip the popcorn and soda, aim for the afternoon screenings instead of Friday or Saturday night, and it still adds up pretty darn fast. Still, so many films are far better on the big screen than they are on TV, even with a fancy home theater setup. Movies are designed to be big and loud, with 11-speaker systems or more, so compressing it onto your 38″ HDTV will never offer the same experience. Enter MoviePass. For a flat…

    In a documentary style that adroitly switches between between a film about a delusional homeless man named Augustus Gladstone (played by writer and director Robyn C.

Augustus claims that he’s about 150 years old and that his youthful appearance is because he’s a vampire. But is he? A gentle man whose home is tucked in the middle of a condemned hotel in…

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

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

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

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

    5 Apr 2014 | 2:33 pm
    Many people believe that The Avengers was and is Marvel’s best movie ever made. I beg to differ, I always felt no matter who made the avengers and what kind of story it had, everyone who has read the comics just wanted to see all the superheroes together in the same film. It was just a comic book nerd’s wet dream and it went on to make a lot of money. But was it a great movie? It was definitely a good action packed entertaining film and therefore it was a good movie. Captain America: Winter Soldier on the other hand is something greater than a good movie. Marvel had missed a trick…
  • Review: ‘Noah’ is an Epic Disappointment

    Russ Homer
    29 Mar 2014 | 12:03 pm
    Noah, directed by Darren Aronofsky is based on the biblical story of a Noah’s Ark. Though it is based on the story in the Bible there are many changes in terms of story and events that many people with a religious background will find uncomfortable and even insulting. The film stars Russell Crowe as Noah, Jennifer Connelly as his wife, Logan Lerman as the Han the second son of Noah, Emma Watson as Ila, Ray Winstone as an evil King, and Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah the grandfather of Noah. The story is a loose adaptation of the story in the Bible, with many changes that either add…

    [WEIRD SCIENCE screens Saturday April 19th at midnight at the Capitol Theatre.]Review by Charles Cassady, Jr. Adolescent audiences eagerly flocked to it, critics hated John Hughes' WEIRD SCIENCE when it premiered in 1984 (what was I doing? Lots and lots of college homework, you know, for that career and the good jobs that I was never going to have). The persnickety movie-scribe establishment including Hughes supporters like Roger Ebert, took the movie as an almost personal betrayal by writer-director Hughes, whose 16 CANDLES, PRETTY IN PINK and THE BREAKFAST CLUB seemed to save society from…

    Review by Charles Cassady, Jr. It was upbeat for a moment there, when the Cleveland-filmed CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER broke box-office records internationally. For an instant it seemed like the world actually liked Cleveland. But...remember, that while CAPTAIN AMERICA shot all over town, it was simply the ruins of post-industrial Great Recession Cleveland passing for other Marvel Comics locales. The real test of "Renaissance City" would come when the Browns-centered football movie DRAFT DAY, actually set in Cleveland, premiered in wide release right after CAPTAIN AMERICA. And we all…
  • Dom Hemingway

    Pamela Zoslov
    17 Apr 2014 | 9:32 pm
    Review by Pamela ZoslovIt opens with a loud, boastful paean by the title character, a cockney convict played by Jude Law, to his penis, which he praises as, among other things, “a fuckin' work of art, like a Renoir or a Picasso.” That bold opening suggests a more exciting experience than Richard Shepherd's film, DOM HEMINGWAY, delivers, but it's is still a pretty enjoyable ride. The movie tells a familiar story, that of a long-imprisoned criminal sprung free upon a changed world. The inmate, Dom, is an unlucky safecracker who's been 12 years a convict for keeping his mouth shut about his…

    Review by Pamela ZoslovJonathan Glazer's sci-fi movie UNDER THE SKIN was ten years in the making. “It was very easy to spend that much time on the film,” says the director, best known for SEXY BEAST.” “I wanted to keep going [to] make something that...was a kind of experience that matched the perspective of the character.”It is an experience, all right, but not necessarily the kind most viewers will embrace. The movie stars the ubiquitous Scarlett Johansson as an alien who inhabits the body of a young woman and roams the Scottish Highlands in a van, luring young hitchhikers to their…

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

    Many a comic book movie fan briefly got butterflies in their stomach this week, when the news broke that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – which has begun its theatrical run outside the U.S. – features a button scene (read: mid-credits scene) that is actually a promo for X-Men: Days of Future Past, which arrives in the States just a few weeks after the Spidey sequel. However, before everyone could get too excited about Sony and 20th Century Fox taking the first baby step towards a crossover with the respective studios’ Marvel properties, the truth came out: it’s really part…

Long before Warner Bros. moved Batman vs. Superman from July 17, 2015 to May 6, 2016, Marvel had already scheduled an unannounced Phase 3 movie for the same May 6th date – meaning that the rival production houses are now locked in a “who will blink first?” game of blockbuster…

    We’re been waiting to see what film Steven Spielberg directs next, to follow his seventh Oscar nomination for directing (two resulted in wins) for the historical drama Lincoln. The filmmaker legend was originally prepared to jump right into making the sci-fi apocalyptic blockbuster Robopocalypse, but budgetary and creative concerns resulted in the project being indefinitely delayed; since then, Spielberg has circle an eclectic collection of scripts, including the true-story drama American Sniper (which Clint Eastwood is now directing instead) and, most recently, a prospective remake of…

    It’s a universally known fact that Ryan Gosling looks very good on camera, but last year the actor decided to try his hand at directing with his feature film debut, How to Catch a Monster. Filmed on location in Detroit, the film is described as an American fantasy neo-noir about a family who find themselves drawn into a surreal underworld. How to Catch a Monster has now been retitled Lost River, named after the dilapidated town in which it takes place, and stars Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) as Billy, the mother of two children. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actor Iain De Caestecker plays…

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

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

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

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

    What would it look like if Ken Russell had been a Soviet filmmaker? One clue can be found in the spy flick The Billion Dollar Brain, starring Michael Caine. The cheeky English auteur succeeded in making an espionage caper in which the Russians are the heroes and the Americans the villains, and indulged his love of Eisenstein with a version of the battle on the ice from Alexander Nevsky. Another clue can be found in Pervorossiyanye (a.k.a. Russian Pioneers, 1968) by Aleksandr Ivanov and Yevgeni Shiffers. The Great Leap Forward here is the blending of dialectical montage with a pop art…

And, as pictured above, that’s the new Godzilla, who doesn’t look all that different from his more recent versions, though here is the original design for comparison’s sake: The main thing seems to be that over the years, with new versions featuring CGI over men in suits, the eyes have gotten smaller and the designs seem more…

It might be a little bit spoiler, because it’s behind the scenes footage of the cast and crew filming a lot of things. There’s little or no context, but you can probably piece some things together.I really love watching B-roll because it shows the lie of moviemaking, especially on a big budget action film like this one. It gives away all their tricks, but some how it doesn’t kill the magic. Even though I know how the process works, I still watch movies and think, "How did they do that?!" Here’s how they do…
  • DOCTOR WHO Portrait Series by Tim Doyle

    Check out this awesomely cool series of Doctor Who portraits created by artist Tim Doyle. I was late to the game with Doctor Who, but it quickly became one of my favorite series, and I'm so happy that it's still around. I hope it never ends. I love this set of illustrations featuring several of the Doctors and villains from the show. My favorite Doctor so far is Matt Smith, and my favorite villains are the weeping angels.  Via: XombieDirge

Non-Stop.  For the Misfits, the only thing non-stop about Liam Neeson’s new film is their disagreement about what does and doesn’t work. The Grand Budapest Hotel. If M.

Lone Survivor.  Both Steve and Lou support this film version of Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell’s harrowing true-life story of survival.  Jim, however, remains the “lone dissenter.” RoboCop.  Surprisingly, this remake turns out to be more than a soulless, mechanical re-animating of an 80s hit.  While retaining and updating the original’s high-tech effects, it also manages to hold onto some of it’s heart and brains. The Monuments Men.  A picture may be worth a thousand words, but George Clooney’s latest “motion picture” is…

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

    Having apparently looked in the mirror while filming Star Trek Into Darkness and thought, “Damn, I look pretty good in uniform,” Chris Pine is using his desire for clean costume lines to help pick his next projects. He’s already signed on to play a border patrol agent in The Line, and according to The Hollywood Reporter, Pine is also in talks to don a Coast Guard uniform in Disney’s upcoming period drama, The Finest Hours. The film will tell the true story of a 1952 ship crash that left two crews floating in the ocean in need of rescue.Director Craig Gillespie—who helmed the…
  • Coming Distractions: The jukebox musical gets the Clint Eastwood treatment in the trailer for Jersey Boys

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:28 pm
    Source Clint Eastwood might seem like a strange choice to direct the movie version of a hit jukebox musical, but at least the Broadway source material isn’t totally out of his wheelhouse. After all, the actor-turned-director is only a few years older than real-life crooner Frank Valli, the main character of Jersey Boys; both he and Eastwood got into showbiz in the ’50s and became stars in the ’60s. Clint, in other words, had his own memories to draw on when dramatizing the rise and fall of the Four Seasons, the group Valli once fronted. A quick glimpse at the first trailer for Jersey…

Instead, Greenfield portrays the guy Doris (again, not “the guy Doris”) pegs as the solution to her…

    Direct-to-video bullshit keeps the expectations for horror movies so low that when one is declared “pretty good”, you can expect sequels until basically the end of time—thus perpetuating the cycle that the film once deemed so “original” broke free from in the first place. Sinister, which Scott Tobias gave a rousing B+ in The A.V. Club back in October of 2012, is currently in the early stages of that cycle. Summit Entertainment and parent company Lionsgate are preparing to shoot Sinister 2, written by Sinister scribes Scott Derrickson and C.

Edwards refers to the original film's allegorical references to Hiroshima and Nagasaki as touching points for how a monster movie can be both hugely entertaining, but also have a serious point to make. With that in mind, for all the new film's mayhem and carnage, Edwards was determined to shoot it in as realistic a style as possible, so as to make the set-up more believable.

Sure, you can buy a cheap inflatable screen for a couple hundred dollars, but you get what you pay for. Our three AIRSCREEN models are far superior to all other inflatable screens. They are world famous for their durability in adverse conditions. We have tested all screen sizes in 30 mph winds, sometimes more.

  • FILM#: The Big Deal About Jim Jarmusch’s Vampire Tale ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’

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

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

    THE WHO: Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Jude Law, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Bill Murray and newcomer Tony Revolori in the latest film by Wes Anderson. THE WHAT: The Grand Budapest Hotel follows an exceptional concierge named Gustave (Fiennes) and his lobby boy Zero (Revolori) in a race against time after he is accused of murdering an elderly woman that had left a very lucrative portrait for him in her will. THE BIG DEAL: Anderson’s films are always adept at mixing melancholy and playfulness with an unmistakable childlike aesthetic. In most of his films, a dark,…

    THE WHO: Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams and Rooney Mara in a film by Spike Jonze. THE WHAT: Theodore Twombly, a writer who’s gone into the business of writing personal love letters for people who are just too busy to do it themselves,  falls in love with his OS1, a new piece of computer software that is intelligently designed to learn and react on its own. THE BIG DEAL: Phoenix brings a sense of charisma yet aching sadness to his character Twombly, a lost, heartsick man getting over losing the love of his life. What seems like a movie designed to be a cynical approach…
  • FILM#: The Who, the What and the Big Deal About “Inside Llewyn Davis”

    Israel Daramola

    THE WHO: Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman in the latest by Joel and Ethan Coen. THE WHAT: The story follows a week in the life of a young folk singer (Isaac) navigating the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 1960s and battling against his frustrations with the business as well as the New York winter. THE BIG DEAL: The Coens are adept at creating a world in every movie they make, and “Inside Llewyn Davis” is no different. Capturing the pre-Dylan folk scene in New York, the film can be as grim and cold-hearted as the winter landscape it lives…

While the studio audience and judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. seemed shocked by Dexter's elimination, Gold Derby's racetrack odds actually predicted that Dexter would be in the bottom two.

    Dom Hemingway (Jude Law) is an ace safe cracker who is finally released from prison after 12 years because he refused to rat on his accomplices. During that time, Dom’s wife has died of cancer (not before cheating on him first), his daughter has had a grandson, and those he protected have profited off of his suffering in prison. Dom immediately seeks out his old heist buddy Dickie Black (Richard E.

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

    Even with the ridiculously awkward premise, Teddy Bears is not nearly as original as one might think.

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

    It is rather surprising to see who truly breaks from the torture first in The Boys of Abu Ghraib, a film based on the events leading up to the breaking of the 2005 Abu Ghraib prison scandal, as well as the broader national topic of advanced interrogation techniques. Written, directed, and staring Luke Moran, a relatively unknown actor, the film is surprising well done. The Boys of Abu Ghraib bears an intellectual side as it portrays the context of these soldiers’ abuses without forgiving them.

    We conclude our Dan O'Bannnon'othon this week with the 1995 Screamers. Not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination, Matt finds himself in the odd position of defending cheesy B-grade sci-fi to Mark. Despite being ridden with plot holes and degraded by lack of production value, Screamers achieves in theme what many more blockbuster offerings only hint at. Holding true to its Philip K Dick short story source material, Screamers surpasses the likes of Paycheck and Minority Report without the Hollywood head-start.Download: 113 Screamers

Matt struggles to evoke the sense of sci-fi wonder in Mark when he becomes fixated on the notion of a Hilton hotel room on the planet Mars, complete with cheesy wall art. But despite this, Matt and Mark do thoroughly plumb the Phillip K Dickian notion of "what is real" and Total Recall's deft delivery thereof. Total Recall's true magic is its ability to literally spoil the plot for you 1/4 of the way in, yet keep you riveted until the very end.Download: 111 Total Recall

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

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

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

     ”You have questionable taste in women, my friend.” “Apparently.” I wasn’t familiar with the term, LARP, until I first heard about this movie last year. I actually had to look it up (L.A.R.P=Live Action Role Play), then I realized whom those people were that dress up in fantasy garb: Larpers (Live Action Role Players). Like Ryan Kwanten’s character I too had been into Dungeons & Dragons at one point, for me it was a big part of my high school life, and also like his character I had eventually outgrown it. Out grown all role-playing games actually, but unlike…

    This year's festival theme was Family in the Movies: The Ties that Bind. While the movies screened fit this theme, this idea of family goes beyond just the schedule. The people who attended the festival are like one big family and the tie that binds us is classic movies. When you go to the TCM Classic Film Festival, you're with family. It doesn't feel like you're with a bunch of strangers because you are with your people.

    My last day at the TCM Classic Film Festival was a lot less hectic than the previous days. I unfortunately missed the screening of The Fiddler on the Roof and didn't get an opportunity to see director Norman Jewison in person. I really needed some extra sleep if I was going to make it through the last day.On our way to catch the bus to the festival, Carlos and I made a short detour and stopped by Robert Mitchum's star.

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

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

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    It’s incredible how much concern director William Friedkin is able to get for his characters in Sorcerer. Now, the film’s really kind of like four or five movies in one–there are four prologues, with very full ones for Bruno Cremer and Roy Scheider, then there’s the story of Cremer, Scheider and Amidou (who also gets a prologue, just not a substantial one) in South America, then there’s the story of Ramon Bieri and his American oil company and how it affects the local South American population, then there’s the story of these four guys who have to drive…
  • The Strange Woman (1946, Edgar G. Ulmer)

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

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

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

    From the second scene of the Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, it's clear director Meyer is going to be somewhat merciless in how he presents the film. It's not just a story about a sea change in the franchise's mythology or about the familiar cast members retiring, it's also about it being the final Star Trek movie. Meyer gets phenomenal performances out of his cast; there's the light stuff, usually with DeForest Kelley or Walter Koenig, but he also goes dark with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy. Somehow, Meyer manages to balance the film between…

  • The cheapest (legal!) way to watch Game Of Thrones

    Liz Rice
    15 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    I have a confession: I have never watched Game Of Thrones.But everyone says it's amazing, and the media frenzy around Season 4 got me wondering whether there's a reasonably-priced way to see what I've been missing.  And yes - you can watch as much as you like, from all four seasons of Game Of Thrones, totally legally, for just £4.99. How? Get yourself a Now TV subscription.There's a trial price of £4.99 / month (after which it reverts to £8.99 / month).  You can cancel any time.(It may be best to get on this fast - we can't be sure whether it's accurate, but the Now TV site is…

  • Virgin Tivo wasting its recommendation slots

    Liz Rice
    10 Mar 2014 | 3:04 am
    The Virgin Media Tivo box includes four promotional spots at the top of the screen. They constitute a significant piece of real estate that could be used for all sorts of interesting recommendations and alerts about new or changed services. But we're not very impressed with what they're suggesting for us! Let's take a look.The first slot is The Haunting In Conneticut 2, which is a horror movie. We've watched dozens of films on Virgin - and I doubt a single one has been horror. So this is hardly a personalized recommendation.Even if we were horror fans, this particular film has a 19% approval…
  • Could we be smarter about when we watch a movie?

    Ian Unsworth
    10 Feb 2014 | 8:32 am
    20 years ago, our choices were simple - watch a movie at the cinema, wait for the VHS to buy or rent, or wait for it to be shown on TV. Each step was in most cases years apart, and cinema was far and away the best format to watch your movie so making choices was easier based on how quickly you wanted to see it and how good you wanted the experience to be. Fast forward to now, and the choice is much harder.In most cases, it all still begins at the cinema - the VOD simultaneous releases are not common enough to consider right now. There has never been a better time to watch movies at the cinema…

    By Matthew TaylorWe're fond of a good mystery here at Tank Top Tv...or are we? DUN! DUN! DUN!Yes. Yes we are. Another case solved.The only thing we love more than a mystery are the men and women who solve them: the sleuths of the TV world. Judging by the wealth of detective/crime/police/mystery programs on TV, we are surely not alone in our affection for the genre and its sleuths. They come in all different sorts of shapes and sizes, from the enthusiastic amateurs to the worn-down, seen-far-too-much, grouchy police detectives.We've put together a list of 10 of our favourite TV sleuths with a…

  • The Double Review

    15 Apr 2014 | 1:41 pm
    The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as Simon James, a drab office drone so unremarkable that his boss can't remember his name after seven years on the job. He harbours a crush on his colleague/neighbour Hannah (Mia Wasikowska) and spends his evenings peering into her apartment via his telescope. Simon's dreary life begins to unravel after the arrival of James Simon, a doppelganger – also played by Eisenberg – who is everything Simon isn't: slick, charming, successful with the opposite sex and upwardly mobile professionally, quickly catching Hannah's eye and earning a promotion. The Double,…
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

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

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

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

    24 Mar 2014 | 3:15 pm
    The good news is that it's one of his best - and most fun - films. Set in the fictional Eastern European country of Zubrowska, the film adopts a Russian-doll style structure with a present day author (Tom Wilkinson) telling the tale of his time at the slightly downtrodden Grand Budapest Hotel in the 1960's, where he met the hotel's owner Mr. Moustafa (F. Murray Abraham). Moustafa in turn tells the writer (played in these scenes by Jude Law) about the 1930's heyday of the hotel and its legendary concierge, M. Gustave (Ralph Fiennes). Gustave is one of Anderson's best characters, played with…

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

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

      Heaven Is for Real by George Wolf   Whatever message a movie may have, subtlety in sending it is rarely a bad thing. Heaven Is for Real turns out to be more subtle than the title would suggest, with a solid group of actors to help keep it grounded when it’s in danger of too much, pardon the expression, preaching to the choir. Based on the true story described in the best-selling book, the film introduces us to Colton Burpo, a four year old Nebraska boy who says he went to heaven. Colton’s father Todd (Greg Kinnear) is the local pastor, with a loving wife (Kelly Reilly)…

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

  • Hobbit 3 Rumored to be Retitled The Hobbit: Into the Fire

    18 Apr 2014 | 6:34 pm
    It seems the next Hobbit film might be getting a title change. Again. According to a new report, New Line has registered a trademark for The Hobbit: Into the Fire, and it's currently rumored that this is the title the studio wants to go with for the final film. The One Ring fansite, who broke the news, commented that this isn't too surprising, as movie studios often register multiple potential titles for their films, just in case. At this point though, it's getting a little excessive. Originally, there were only going to be two Hobbit movies: An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again.

    NBC has announced a new online miniseries ahead of the television return of Heroes. Heroes Reborn: Digital Series will serve as a prequel to the upcoming (and hopefully triumphant) return of the show in 2015. The original Heroes TV series was cancelled almost half a decade ago after four seasons. The show was a huge success when it first aired, with the initial season racking up the highest rating for an NBC drama premiere in five years. Unfortunately, the WGA writer's strike combined with spiraling ratings led to a hasty wrap-up of the series in season four. Luckily for fans who were…

From the way it sounds, I may not be the only one because now FOX appears to be trying to bring back a familiar face to the dying franchise. Latino Review reports that FOX is taking pitches…

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

    Director: Gareth Evans (The Raid, V/H/S 2)Starring: Iko Uwais, Alex Abbad, Julie Estelle, Yaya Ruhain, Arifin PutraCertificate: 18Run-time: 150 minutesIN SHORT: The Raid 2 is a near-perfect martial arts picture that transcends the genre and it's about to become your new favourite film and the envy of every action movie director around the world. It's almost a definitive fact that sequels are never better than the original movie.With a sequel comes expectation and in this case, a lot more financial responsibility. Made on a tiny budget, in a country not renowned for its cinema, The Raid…
  • [MINI MOVIE REVIEWS] - February/March 2014

    Ben Hayward
    26 Mar 2014 | 7:40 am
      There's not much wrong with Kimberly Peirce's (director of Boys Don't Cry and Stop-Loss) Carrie reboot. In fact, it's probably quite an interesting movie if you've never seen the original. The real problem facing this venture is that Brian DePalma's version is SO iconic and timeless, this remake could never match it, let alone surpass it. The script-writer's stick rigidly to the storyline, making this a near scene-for-scene copy, just with a more expensive-looking paint-job and some annoying modern technology awkwardly lumped in. In fairness to Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, their…

    Director: Scott Waugh (Act of Valor)Starring: Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Michael KeatonCertificate: 12ARun-time: 130 minutesIN SHORT: Need for Speed is an under-written and utterly predictable blockbuster lacking heart and a brain. The Fast and Furious boys have nothing to worry about.This year is a make-or-break one for Aaron Paul as he steps out from the huge shadow of Breaking Bad, leaves the meth van behind him and tries to conquer Featurefilm Land. Later this month he stars alongside Pierce Brosnan in indie comedy A Long Way Down and the tail-end of 2014 see's him under…
  • My 86th Academy Award Predictions

    Ben Hayward
    28 Feb 2014 | 8:02 am
    Last year I wrote up an Academy Award Prediction Post and out of the 12 categories I voted for, I ended up getting 9 correct! So, with another year of movie-watching under my belt, I'm hoping to do even better than 2012.And by sheer coincidence, I've actually seen every single Best Picture nominee this year.  I think this is a sign of the type of film that's been nominated in 2013 as entries like The Wolf of Wall Street, Gravity and American Hustle are far more accessible than previous nominees like 2012's Amour and Beasts of the Southern Wild and The Artist and Tree of Life the year…

    Last year when comic book writer Mark Millar was announced as the "godfather" of sorta for FOX he went onto state that a new reboot on the Fantastic Four franchise will occur and will be in the same cinematic universe as FOX's other property the X-Men. Then just last month FOX announced plans for a sequel to the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot a year before its first installment was released. They also announced a mystery "untitled FOX" film for 2018 which made many assume it was an X-Men vs Fantastic Four title. Now the guys over at Schmoes Know have learned that unfortunately the first…

Of course like always the question will Spidey ever crossover with The Avengers at Marvel or X-Men at FOX in which the producer said it will never happen until they have run out of ideas:“I think I’m probably a little bit of the militant here. I think it will take a moment in which we’ve run out of ideas. There's so much to tell about Spider-Man. There's so much to tell about the Sinister Six.

They even have the entire scene she will be in. Its more of an cameo instead of a full scene. :: Minor Spoilers ::"While Wolverine is gallivanting around in the past with the X-Men: First Class cast, though, Kitty Pryde is injured, and her future hold on Wolverine becomes tenuous. In order to preserve the time travel bond, then, the X-Men must find Rogue, who has the ability to absorb any mutant power.

    A recent stay in an Israeli hotel left me with limited viewing options, thanks to the TV in my room exclusively showing movies in which Brendan Fraser gets attacked by animals. Avoiding these like the plague or a charity person in the street, here are the three films I managed to find in English: Fair Game (1995) No, not the Sean Penn one from 2010. Not since Gary Oldman and Gary Barlow have two entities with the same name represented such an obvious gulf in quality. This Fair Game stars Cindy Crawford and one of the Baldwins who isn’t Alec. William Baldwin plays Max Kirkpatrick,…
  • Animal Crackers

    14 Apr 2014 | 12:42 pm
    A popular defence of Marxism is that it was “funnier at the time”, and while this may be true, from a modern perspective we can’t help but see it as a template for totalitarianism. Similarly it would be great to be able to go back to 1930 and watch the Marx Brothers’ Animal Crackers in a packed auditorium, but a modern viewing yields very few laughs. The plot centres on a piece of art that’s being unveiled at a socialite’s party to celebrate the return of a great explorer (Groucho Marx) from his around the world travels. It’s fairly light on story,…

    10 Apr 2014 | 12:41 pm
    This is the story of a young boy called C (Lillo Brancato and Franci Capra) and the challenges he faces growing up in a rough New York neighbourhood. He is torn between the straight and narrow tutelage of his father (Robert De Niro) and the quick path to success offered by local crime boss Sonny (Chazz Palminteri), who takes the boy under his wing. This is the first of only two films directed by De Niro, and while inexperienced behind the camera, his knowledge of New York gangster movies from decades in the spotlight is clear. A Bronx boy himself, this is clearly a project of passion, which…

    Sex offending is one of the toughest subjects you can tackle in a film, but there are some great examples of how to do it right. Films like Michael, Mysterious Skin and Little Children. And The Woodsman is another good example. In one of his most challenging roles, Kevin Bacon plays convicted paedophile Walter, who works in a lumber yard after serving a 12 year sentence for child abuse. Bacon isn’t an actor who needs to go outside of his comfort zone like this, and that he chose this kind of role is admirable. He does a superb job with the character, with his anguish-filled,…

  • Leonardo DiCaprio is Confirmed for Iñárritu’s next Film “The Revenant”

    After his award winning performance in The Wolf of Wall street everyone has been wondering what Leo would be doing next.  After many false reports we are getting confirmation via notable sources that he has signed on to Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu’s “The Revenant”. Adopted from a novel written by Michael Punke, the premise of the movie is something that I would be interested in seeing Leo do.  The film takes place in South Dakota in the 1820’s.  It follows a fur trapping expedition that goes wrong and finds the character to be played by DiCaprio, named Hugh Glass, mauled by a…

In “Sabotage”, an elderly Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels by infiltrating them with senior citizens. Sorry, I just can’t stop. Anyway, Arnold plays DEA agent John “Breacher” Wharton, whose team members are being killed in incredibly gory ways. He investigates the case, to find out which one of his…

    A dry Academic History Lesson I love it when a movie makes me feel smart. That’s why I like making my way over to limited releases on occasion, especially when nationwide releases disappoint me. Directed by Diego Luna, Chávez chronicles the birth of a modern American movement led by famed civil rights leader and labor organizer, Cesar Chavez (Michael Pena). Torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to bringing dignity and justice to others, Chavez was almost like a farm workers Ghandi. He embraces non violence, while fighting for the rights of farm workers, and…

    12 Apr 2014 | 3:41 pm
    When Hollywood takes an 80′s TV series, turns it into a slapstick buddy comedy and banks hard, what do they do next?  They do it again.  The first 21 Jump Street which was released in 2012, was made for $42 million and took in $138 million in the domestic box office.  That is easy money.  Even if the movie does half as good as the first one, that is still good money with very little risk.  Not to mention both Tatum and Jonah Hill’s stars have risen substantially since the first release. Adequately titled “22 Jump Street” (why take any chances??) the new film will…

    Overproduced, Lengthy but Definitely Watchable The much anticipated sequel to the first Captain America movie is pleasing critics and killing at the box office. So is the movie living up to its hype? Let’s find out. The movie starts out after Steve Rogers gets ‘defrosted’ after getting put into a cryogenic sleep following Captain America 1. Not only does Captain America have to fight the bad guys, he also needs to adjust to a new millennium world. It’s action with a bit of ‘fish out of water’ thrown in. Honestly, I felt this movie was a bit overwhelming. Expect cyber snooping,…

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

The show follows Luther (Idris Elba) and the various cases he tackles during his career as a copper. It starts off as a procedural, but within a few episodes becomes an enthralling serialized drama. Definitely the most impressive aspect of Luther, is the characters. Idris Elba (primarily known for his role in The Wire) plays his character realistically by displaying his flaws and moral behavior in various situations. It also helps that the stories told…

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

    11 Feb 2014 | 9:57 am
    I was planning on waiting until the first season was complete but I am now four episodes in and True Detective has thoroughly impressed me. The first season is the story of two detectives recollecting their role in the hunt for a serial killer seventeen years ago as the killer seems to have resurfaced in the present. The first thing that captured my attention was the dialogue. The conversations between characters articulately delve into what it means to be a human while keeping things slightly humorous. Second, the actors (Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson) have amazing chemistry and…
  • Her

    6 Feb 2014 | 1:24 pm
    Quite a few Siri jokes have been made about the movie, Her, all well deserved. Although, the movie itself was a well thought out vision of artificial intelligence in our society. Her is based on the relationship between Theodore Twombly and his newly purchased, artificially intelligent operating system, Samantha. This plot led to a heavy, thought-provoking movie and I often found myself wondering about each situation as it presented itself on-screen. Two complements to the movie really stood out to me – the cinematography and music. Every scene was incredibly colorful and vivid, giving…

But there’s time and tide that can get in the way.”

    Young Horses’ Octodad: Dadliest Catch has finally been given a release date for the PS4 and it releases much sooner than you would think. Creative director Ken Zuhn announced on the PS Blog that the game will be releasing this Tuesday, April 22nd. The lengthy development process has allowed the devs to implement new controller configurations like “PlayStation Move, double PlayStation Moves, and our personal favorite, PlayStation Move plus Nav controller!

    Warner Bros. Italy has released a new TV spot for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla that shows off some new scenes. I know there are very few people who visit this site that understand Italian, but I was dying for more footage that I scoured Warner Bros. sites for five minutes till I found this. Synopsis: An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

    In this weeks “Football – All part of the game” Sean Canning remembers the Hillsborough tragedy, asks if Liverpool have taken a major step towards the title and also casts his eye over last weekend’s FA Cup action. 96 reasons not to forget On the 15th of April 1989 I was a football-mad 10 year old who was anxious to find out who the FA cup finalists would be on a pleasant spring evening.

    Given the plaudits heaped on Gareth Evans’s stunning 2012 Indonesian action masterpiece, The Raid, expectations for its sequel could not have been higher. The Raid 2 (its subtitle, Berandal, was dropped for UK audiences) has been keenly anticipated, of course, but its glorious progenitor set a standard many filmmakers — even those as ambitious as Evans — would simply choose to leave unchallenged.While The Raid came out of nowhere to amaze Western audiences and achieve almost universal critical acclaim, questions lingered over whether something so watertight, so self-contained, so…

    From a doughty debut in 1997 (Jayate) to being written off mid career, to winning the 2014 National Award - 'Best Director' for Shahid (which also won the 'Best Actor' award), director Hansal Mehta has toughed it out in an industry that is as rewarding as it is unsparing. He talks to me about his daunting yet unyielding journey in filmmaking, the overwhelming response for his award-winning film, expectations from his upcoming film Citylights, his voluntary sabbatical and his steely determination to come back.How does it feel to be finally rewarded…

    The 1984 Sikh massacre, one of the most shameful episodes in the history of democratic India, may have conveniently been forgotten by its perpetrators but it comes to haunt its victims even today. The survivors’ battle for justice continues, almost 30 years after. Very few filmmakers have dared to touch this subject, for reasons obvious. The Widow Colony (2005) and Amu (2005) are the two most notable films on the subject.We caught up with filmmaker, activist and the woman behind the award-winning documentary The Widow Colony, Harpreet Kaur. The…

  • Queen (2014) - Kangana wears her crown right!

    Mansi
    8 Mar 2014 | 11:40 pm
    Queen is a routine, familiar character, very one of us. Naive, docile, acquiescent, untraveled. Rani Mehra (Queen) is comfortably shuttered from the world around her until life gives her a bolt from the blue when two days before her wedding, her fiancee calls it off. She is shattered but not without faith. She picks up the pieces and gets going, much reluctantly initially. What follows is an endearing journey of her exploits and self-discovery (Without getting out of character, mind you!) That is where her honesty and earnestness come to the fore.In many ways, Queen reminded me of Highway. Of…

    The final trailer for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past is online and it is the best of the bunch. It focuses on Wolverine and his efforts to recruit the X-Men of the past to help him prevent a war in the future. Logan knows that in the future an army of mutant killing robots called the Sentinels will eventually turn on humans and mutants alike. This will result in many casualties as the remaining mutants and humans try to fight back against this threat. The future X-Men are losing the war and they are on the verge of being wiped out completely. In a last ditch attempt to turn…

    A strange rumour has popped up this week claiming that The Hobbit: There and Back Again might possibly be in for a last minute title change before its release later this year. New Line have apparently had the title The Hobbit: Into the Fire officially registered, which has sparked speculation that this may become the new title for the final film. The titles of the Hobbit films have gone through several changes over the years, mostly due to the decision to make three films instead of two. When two was the plan, the titles were to have been The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit:…
  • David Fincher drops out of Steve Jobs biopic

    Director David Fincher has dropped out of Sony’s biopic of late Apple CEO Steve Jobs after a disagreement over (yep, you guessed it) money. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Fincher was asking for $10 million in up front fees, as well as control of the film’s marketing. After helming more than a few of the last decade’s most critically acclaimed films, including two in collaboration with Sony (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network), Fincher has grown into a director with clout; his films make pretty good money, and they also scoop awards now and then.

The film was voted movie of the year, and stars Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson both won for best female and male performance. It’s unsurprising that Hunger Games, youth culture phenomenon that it is, proved to be so popular with the MTV Awards crowd, as the ceremony is very much aimed at younger movie fans. Conan O’Brien hosted the show, which was its usual cheeky and irreverent self. For example, Zac Efron had his shirt…

    Transcendence: the quality or state of being transcendent.Transcendent: exceeding or surpassing in level of excellence."We are the Borg. Youwill be assimilated!"This dire production fills neither of those provided definitions. In fact, Transcendence is the total opposite: a heady technology based singularity plot weighted down by flat acting, terrible editing, and an abysmal script that only serves the purpose of lowering expectations for this summer's upcoming releases. Hopes were set high for this one, but were dashed by another dismal attempt at trying to use big name actors to amplify a…

    One monster will rule the box office this summer. As a child, Godzilla was part of my daily nutritional intake. Nintendo games, Godzilla, and basketball. I did manage to squeeze in someactual nutrition in there somewhere. Stuff like Infra Man, Ninja Gaiden, and Transformers were what my brain required for sustenance—and it's not so different now. I've seen nearly every Godzillafilm at least twice, besides the embarrassment of Matthew Broderick trying to keep a straight face through the entirety of the first abysmal American remake. What wasn't wrong with that film? They analyze…

    Walter's secrets are out!  But are they worth watching?"Yeah. She just farted."Ben Stiller got a $90 million budget to make The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which is based on a 1939 short story by James Thurber. Since the publication of that story, the term "Mittyesque" is used in various circles to describe people who prefer living in a fantasy world rather than the real one. After a brief google search, I learned that in a military context, the term refers to people who try to fake an impressive career."Mitteyesque," in the military sense, is the perfect term to describe Ben Stiller as…

    Horror gets a shot in the arm with this week's release of Oculus, another movie that helps redefine a genre that's been struggling for years. "Rebooting BSG again? What?"As a horror fan, I admittedly go in to these movies with very low expectations. After years of disappointment, my lesson was learned time and time again with bad entry after bad entry. Luckily for genre die hards, Oculus brings a highly stylized, extremely entertaining piece of cinematic horror back to theaters this weekend.In 2006, Director Mike Flanagan made a low budget movie called Oculus Chapter 3: The Man With The…
