  • Low Down

    Matt Zoller Seitz
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:19 am
    "Low Down" is a very good jazz movie and a very good heroin movie, if indeed there's much practical difference between the two modes—and perhaps there isn't. From "The Man with the Golden Arm" through "Bird" and "Mo Better Blues," jazz has often been portrayed as a lifestyle that's bound up in addiction to heroin, gambling, sex, cocaine, alcohol, or some mix. When you watch films about the music and the people who perform it, you may start to wonder if jazz itself is an addictive pursuit: music as metaphor. There hasn't been much of a commercial percentage in playing jazz for many decades,…
  • More Than a Superstar: “Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown”

    Brian Tallerico
    24 Oct 2014 | 5:40 am
    It must be daunting to mount a documentary about someone as well-known, beloved and important as James Brown. Where do you start? While his on-stage persona is well-documented, not as much is known about his life away from the mic, so a personal approach would work. However, Brown’s larger-than-life performing style and how it impacted music and stage shows could provide enough material for a documentary of its own. And then you get to how much Brown meant to the civil rights movement and you probably call Ken Burns and see if he can get you in touch with someone at PBS to do a 6-hour…
  • Citizenfour

    Godfrey Cheshire
    24 Oct 2014 | 5:40 am
    Though superlatives can mischaracterize any movie’s qualities, it is not an overstatement, I think, to call “Citizenfour,” Laura Poitras’ film about Edward Snowden, the movie of the century (to date). That statement is meant, first off, to suggest certain things about its relation to our collective past, present and future. No film so boldly X-rays certain crucial changes wrought upon the world, and especially America and its government, by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. No film so demands to be seen by every sentient person who values his or her own freedom and privacy.
  • Ouija

    I played with a Ouija board exactly one time. More on that shortly. What amuses me about the game, and that amusement transfers over to the movie version, is that it proves that there is no such thing as bad publicity. People my age will remember campfire tales and urban legends about unlucky fools who were punished for choosing to contact the deceased using the spirit board trademarked by Hasbro, and if not, I’m sure you remember the 1986 movie “Witchboard,” if only for Tawny Kitaen appearing in it. Regardless, whenever the Ouija board gets mentioned, something horrible is associated…

    Universal Pictures The idea of playing with an Ouija board never seems to end well. People are accused of cheating or someone actually thinks they have made contact, and the board becomes a frightening vessel instead of a silly board game. Director Stiles White‘s Ouija attempts to dive into this mystery and show whether or not the board really is something to fear. Debbie seems to have a thing for Ouija boards, but when she is found dead in her home the apparent victim of suicide her best friend Laine (Olivia Cooke) becomes obsessed with figuring out what really happened.

    Sony Pictures Classics Dawn Wiener is dead, long live Dawn Wiener! Todd Solondz‘s second feature film, Welcome to the Dollhouse, is hailed as the filmmaker’s big breakthrough — a bold, gross, weird and uncomfortably honest look at one awkward tween’s coming-of-age in nineties New Jersey. The film starred Heather Matarazzo as Dawn “Wiener Dog” Wiener, an outcast desperate to fit in with her bone-headed peers, her terrible family and a classmate who repeatedly attempts to rape her. As is Solondz’s signature, the film is admirable and unique, even if…

Truth in packaging, as the Criterion Collection’s smashing release of the Beatles’ film puts the focus squarely on the iconoclastic director, whose vision and bravery under fire made what could have been a forgettable “jukebox...

    Sam Fuller’s “The Big Red One,” a lost platoon of a movie that was cut to shreds upon initial release, finally came home to a hero’s welcome in 2005 with the release of “The Reconstruction.” What appeared to theatrical audiences of 1980 as a ragtag chronicle of young men at war now stands tall as […] Click on the blue headline to read the full post at ScreenAndStream.com

  • Vernon, Florida

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

    David Carter
    4 Jun 2014 | 1:46 pm
    One of the most spectacular flops in history, the film effectively ended the careers of Joe Eszterhas and Arthur Hiller, and it also marked the end of its film studio, Cinergi Pictures. It’s as though the film succeeds at antagonizing those whom it satarizes, and in result it is so noxious that few have opted to encounter it.
  • Pitfall

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

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

  • Watch: 'The Life & Death of Tommy Chaos & Stacey Danger' Short

    Alex Billington
    24 Oct 2014 | 11:13 am
    "What I do know is that: I love more than a compass loves north." What in the funk is this? "Think Blue Valentine meets Jurassic Park." That's the opening pitch for this short film, but it's something else entirely unique and fun in its own way. The Life and Death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger is a wacky, romantic adventure short from filmmaker Michael Lukk Litwak (@MLLitwak). It has a very hipster vibe to it, I must admit, but it's fun and the score is great (from the same guy who did the Beasts of the Southern Wild score). If you want to see a short film with dinosaurs, spaceships,…

    You may not know the name Ben Wheatley yet, but the British filmmaker has gotten quite a bit of buzz previously for his films Sightseers and Kill List. His next film will be an adaptation of High Rise starring Tom Hiddleston, but after that, he's coming to the United States for his next film. THR has word that Wheatley is set to direct a 1970s crime drama called Free Fire, and he has quite the cast assembled to star in it. The project is on sale at the American Film Market and is touting Olivia Wilde (Rush), Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) and also Armie…

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:05 am
    If you weren't already planning on seeing The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in theaters, Warner Bros. Pictures might have a good reason for you to show up. Aside from being the final installment of Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic, Forbes has heard that there will be some sort of teaser trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice attached to the film. It makes sense since Warner Bros. is behind both franchise films, and while the film will be nearly a year and a half away at that point, the film has been shooting for awhile, and fans are hungry for…

    Ethan Anderton
    24 Oct 2014 | 9:38 am
    In a report looking at the upcoming onslaught of superhero movies arriving from now through the year 2020, THR noted that Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment are keen to get a female director behind the camera for their big screen take on Wonder Woman. The studio already has Gal Gadot in the lead role, and with the film set for release June 23, 2017, they're on the hunt for a filmmaker to bring the heroine to life. Well, Forbes seems to have a line on the shortlist the studio is looking at, though they caution that other names could easily be in the running. It's a mix of film…
  • Review: Bland, Horrible 'Ouija' is Part of a Bigger Hollywood Problem

    Jeremy Kirk
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:51 am
    There's an odd correlation between cineplex screens and toy-store shelves these days. The movies-being-turned-into-toys-being-turned-into-movies cycle is hardly a 2014 revelation. But, with Michael Bay's most recent Transformers movie scraping the well in search for content, it finally felt like that synergistic cycle was a foregone conclusion. Entertainment and, God forbid, story were afterthoughts to the dollars and cents the film ultimately pulled in. I use Transformers as the example, because Bay's horror-movie production company, Platinum Dunes, has a product in which they'd like…

    Russ Fischer
    24 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    Jack O’Connell may well be the next big guy to watch. After his stint on Skins, he showed up in 300: Rise of an Empire and ’71, and received rave notes for his work in Starred Up. Holding the lead role in Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken means that half the families in the US are going to know his face after that film opens at Christmas. And now he might be the man for Terry Gilliam — The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. He would play, according to the most recent draft of the script, a guy who is connected to a Don Quixote movie which has had a fairly undesirable effect on some…

  • ‘John Wick’ Review: Fierce Action in a Unique and Curious Crime Underworld

    Germain Lussier
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    Ninety percent of action movies are derivative. Carbon copies of better movies that came before them. They can be enjoyable, but are often forgettable. Then there’s the other ten percent. Those movies are something special. They originate and innovate, and rise about the rest by being different and surprising. However, by definition, even the best of the best employ many of the same beats. Punching, kicking, shooting, and explosions are the building blocks of an action movie. The ninety percent use them in ways we’ve seen before. The rest mix them up in ways we don’t expect.

Chu’s Jem and the Holograms and an untitled horror film from Warner Bros.

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    On Thursday, October 23, Morelia hosted the Mexican premiere of the Cannes selection White God, a terrific Hungarian film about a little girl and her lost dog Hagen. Directed by Kornél Mundruczó, White God shows the rotten side of humanity, with many different aspects of the (cruel) reality that dogs - and animals in general - have to face every day not just in Budapest, where the movie is set, but in the whole world. The film plays like a revenge fantasy, but it is really clever and never feels gratuitous. Plus, it's definitely a technical masterwork, a very ambitious project that…
  • PK: Watch Aamir Khan's Wide-Eyed Wonder In First Trailer

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    In 2009, director Rajkumar Hirani and actor Aamir Khan made a film that rewrote the box office record books. 3 Idiots was a universally acclaimed comedy placing the 40-something Khan as a mercurial spectre of three friends' college past. In the five years since, Khan has gone on to make one critically acclaimed thriller in Talaash, and Bollywood's biggest grosser ever, Dhoom:3, in which he supplants the series' regulars with his villainous turn. Hirani, meanwhile, appears to have waited to get Khan back, and the result is PK.PK appears to be a film about a childlike, one might even say…

    Alex Ross Perry makes no attempt to mask that the Philip of his new film Listen Up Philip, played to perfection by Jason Schwartzman, at least partly takes his inspiration from the daunted body of work of author, Philip Roth. Though Perry doesn't aim at any one Roth work in specific, he manages to evoke the tone of Roth's ideas far more effectively than other proper adaptations of his books. Schwartzman plays Philip, a young writer anticipating the release of his second novel. Early praise is in, allowing relief from the burden of sophomore pressure, and Philip is growing accustomed to being…

  • Marry Me Review – TV NBC

    Casey Wilson and Ken Marino are perfectly matched, niche comedians, and NBC‘s latest effort, Marry Me, looks to be a vehicle perfectly constructed for them. Of course, that still leaves open the question of whether or not people are going to jump on board. Brought to you by one of the writers of Happy Endings, and obviously with one of its stars, the show has a connection to the comedic stylings of that show, but clearly pulls from the “cornier” comedic abilities of Wilson and Marino. Also like Happy Endings, the show’s only chance at survival is to run as far and as…

    Off all the options heading your way as Halloween approaches, Nightcrawler looks to be the oddest, and creepiest. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a man who may or may not have a screw loose, but definitely has his eye on making his own way in the world. With apparently few options, he sets off to create his own job as a crime journalist, and things soon get rather hairy. The film has released two new clips, and they show off Gyllenhaal’s ability to convince us that maybe he finds it a little too easy to be very weird.

Robert Downey Jr., who brought a certain gravity to the charm of Iron Man, which has helped make those films so successful, returns to a more dramatic role. As Hank Palmer, Downey Jr. finds himself in the middle of several emotional tangles when he has to return to the small town he left for New York City, and is forced to reconnect with his estranged father (Robert Duvall). That would make for a rough enough time out from Hank’s life as a big time attorney, but Hank not only has to interact with his…

While the usual course is that shows either kick off with this sort of theory in mind, or slowly succumb to the allure of an easy ratings/effort ratio, AHS, because of its “season” format, gives us both.

  • Gone Girl

    Alan Bacchus
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:01 pm
    If you were to simply describe the plot of Gillian Flynn’s pulpy bestseller it would come off as an outrageous Joe Eszterhas-style potboiler ripped from the era of early 90’s sexual thrillers. But when orchestrated by a master of the genre, at the top of his game, where other filmmakers would have made this picture into a sloppy ham-fisted mess, David Fincher makes two and half hours a completely engrossing experience, terrifying and witty in equal measure and self-aware enough not to take itself too seriously.Gone Girl (2014) dir.

    The influence of Fellini’s 8 ½ is clear in Bob Fosse’s own memoir-like fictional film. The story of a theatre director under immense pressure to make his next show a hit, while under the usual pressures of the business, told with a mixture of fantasy and realism is cut from the same mould as Fellini’s great picture. The creative evolution of Fosse’s work from 'Sweet Charity', 'Cabaret' and 'Lenny' seems to culminate in this overly ambitious yet invigorating explosion of cinema.All That Jazz (1979) dir.

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

    On a somewhat quiet day at the box office, Brad Pitt's Fury easily took first place with $8.8 million.That debut is a bit higher than last October's Captain Phillips ($8.5 million), and also noticeably better than The Monuments Men ($6.9 million). Still, it's way off from recent R-rated hits The Equalizer ($12.5 million) and Gone Girl ($13.2 million). For the weekend, Fury is on track to earn $24 to $27 million.Entering its third weekend, Gone Girl eased 32 percent to an estimated $5.55 mil...
  • Forecast: 'Fury' to Invade Top Spot This Weekend

    16 Oct 2014 | 5:48 pm
    World War II tank movie Fury will almost certainly take the top spot away from two-time winner Gone Girl this weekend. Meanwhile, The Book of Life and The Best of Me are also opening nationwide.Playing at 3,173 theaters, Fury stars Brad Pitt as the leader of an American tank crew making their way through Germany as the second World War draws to a close.With the exception of 2012's Killing Them Softly-which was an odd, dark crime drama-Pitt has been on a strong run lately as a leading man.

  • '1,000 Times Good Night’ review: Juliette Binoche is great

    By G. Allen Johnson
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:10 pm
    Juliette Binoche is a conflict photographer who is collateral damage in a suicide blast in Afghanistan as Norwegian filmmaker Erik Poppe’s “1,000 Times Good Night” opens. [...] she’s addicted to an adrenaline thrill and political ideology she can’t get out of her life as a wife to a marine biologist and mother to two daughters, including a teenager who isn’t sure if she hates her mother for putting career above family or wants to follow in her footsteps. [...] the family drama is just as compelling; there are no easy solutions or melodramatic flourishes, but a subtle, densely…
  • 'John Wick’ review: Reeves gets the action right

    By Michael Ordoña
    23 Oct 2014 | 1:00 am
    Reeves’ skills are on glorious display in “John Wick,” an expertly made revenge drama in which he goes all headshot on lots and lots of bad guys, and it’s awesome. Kudos are due Sela, director Chad Stahelski and editor Elisabet Ronalds, who eschew extreme close-ups and machine-gun cutting to actually allow the audience to see what’s happening in the many lethal encounters. Because if you’re in this audience, you came to See Keanu Kill. Stahelski and producer David Leitch are longtime stunt kingpins, and in their debut at the helm, they place the outstanding action dead center…
  • 'Diplomacy’ review: Explosive version of why Paris didn’t burn

    By Leba Hertz
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    “Diplomacy,” a gripping and extremely satisfying movie based on a play by Cyril Gely, delves into what Choltitz was thinking and what influenced his decision to save Paris through a fictional encounter with Swedish diplomat Raoul Nordling. Actors Niels Arestrup (Choltitz) and André Dussollier (Nordling) never let up, creating a fascinating dissertation for why it would be a bad idea to set off the explosives at such grand monuments and buildings as the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Opera House and the Eiffel Tower. [...] it’s up to Nordling to find that last shred of humanity in…
  • 'Pelican Dreams’ review: Fascinating birds get their due

    By David Lewis
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    Director Judy Irving, best known for “The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill,” is back with another film about birds, “Pelican Dreams,” a pleasant documentary that introduces us to Gigi, an ailing brown pelican “arrested” for standing on the Golden Gate Bridge and blocking traffic. Irving, the mostly unseen narrator, decides to trace Gigi’s life, taking us to the bird’s presumed birthplace on the Channel Islands in Southern California — a clever idea that provides beautiful wildlife shots and ample opportunities to get the lowdown on these fascinating pterodactyl-like creatures.
  • 'Princess Kaguya’ review: a gem from Studio Ghibli

    By G. Allen Johnson
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:01 am
    The beautiful simplicity of hand-drawn animation and emotionally rich stories has made Studio Ghibli a treasure for most of four decades. Known for more realistic anime films such as the heartbreaking “Grave of the Fireflies” and the underrated “Only Yesterday,” Takahata, 78, cuts loose with “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya,” a mythic story of a princess born inside a bamboo shoot who is raised by an elderly bamboo cutter and his wife and groomed against her will into a regal lady — in other words, her destiny at the cost of her free spirit. Based on “Taketori monogatari,” a…

    We’re getting ready for Halloween this month by reading the classic horror stories that set the stage for the creepy movies and books we love today. Every Friday this October we’ve unveiled a part of Fitz-James O’Brien’s tale of an unusual entity in What Was It?, a story from the spine-tingling collection of works in Horror Stories: Classic Tales from Hoffmann to Hodgson, edited by Darryl Jones.

    When an old friend told me he had saved the former Edward Everett Hale house in Matunuck, Rhode Island from demolition and gifted it to a local historical society with an endowment fund for its restoration, I remembered there was a significant collection of E. E. Hale letters at the Library of Congress that might throw light on the house. How could I have guessed this would lead me to uncovering the revered minister’s decades-long love affair with a forgotten, much younger and truly remarkable woman named Harriet E. Freeman? First I had to unlock the code the writers used in passages…

We thought it would be an excellent time to share thoughts from one of their former Commissioners to highlight the work this organization undertakes. The following is an edited extract by Navanethem Pillay, former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, from International Human Rights Law, Second Edition. I was born a non-white in apartheid South Africa. My ancestors were sugarcane cutters. My father was a bus driver. We were poor. At age 16 I wrote an essay which dealt with the role of…
  • Understanding viruses

    Julie Fergus
    24 Oct 2014 | 1:30 am
    The reemergence of the Ebola epidemic provokes the kind of primal fear that has always gripped humans in the face of contagious disease, even though we now know more about how viruses work than ever before. Viruses, like all living organisms, are constantly evolving. This ensures that new viruses and their diseases will always be with us. For thousands of years, people knew little about the “plagues” that afflicted them and, despite the impossibility to define causality, there were many attempts to explain how they happened. Thucydides wrote in the History of the Peloponnesian War during…

We’re definitely not trying to play down a movie’s originality by yawning and shrugging and murmuring “We’ve seen it all before.” Instead, as historians of film forms and styles, we’re interested in the ways that current movies reconfigure techniques that have been circulating across cinema history.

The Mirror reported on the video recorded by FilmOn’s camera. The footage shows two people dressed as Batgirl and Mr. Incredible getting into an alleged territorial brawl on Hollywood Boulevard. Just so happens that FilmOn had a camera out on the street at the time, filming near where the incident took place. Batgirl and Mr. Incredible are part of the network of many people who work on Hollywood Boulevard who pose with tourists.

    The world of journalism doesn’t rest once the sun goes down. Some would say that a lot of the news, the violence and drama that many love to watch, thrives at nighttime. If there’s an accident taking place nearby at some point past dusk, the nightcrawlers are more than likely one of the first people on the scene, quickly capturing the footage needed to sell it off to local news networks. It’s a rough business but there are plenty out there who make a good living off it. Writer-director Dan Gilroy takes the cameras out of their hands and puts the focus on this particular…

While the rest of the neighborhood is busy turning their front yards into altars of darkness with their fake spider webs, ghoul-inviting carved pumpkins and plastic headstones, you’ve got other things to do: Prepare for the big Harvest Party. Sure it falls on Oct. 31 and also primarily revolves around giving children candy and dressing up in fun costumes, but your gathering should not be confused with something related to Halloween.

More than 80% of those involved in the study had more accurate test results and worked faster if they had music going.

    South Korea’s version of the KFC Double Down—boldly called the “Zinger Double Down King”—has just upped the ante of all meat-only sandwiches. It’s a culinary creation so audaciously meated, even Ron Swanson would shudder at the prospect of consumption. Unlike the timid American version of the deep fried sandwich, that merely puts bacon and cheese between two chicken cutlets, the Zinger straight-up crammed a hamburger into the mix. The 750-calorie creation will only set you back $7, so yeah, it’s totally worth the trip ...

    Stop ruining your own attitude. 
Some call it fulfillment, others say value, but the most common term for what we’re all looking for in the day to day is the illusive "happiness". It's what most every decision you make boils down to—the pursuit of happiness. And while Hollywood shows us Will Smith winning it with the solving of a Rubik’s Cube and a mad dash through the city, the rest of us are left wondering why it's just out of our reach.

    War is inherently cinematic. The stark comparison between good and bad, the grey areas of moral or amoral behavior, the stripping away of the thin veneer of civilization and civilized behavior, and the historical replay — or reinvention — of heinous situations. It’s no wonder that for any given war there are dozens if not hundreds of films. No war has been covered more thoroughly than World War II, however, with its deep and profound impact on all peoples and all corners of the globe. The grand sweep of the war has been covered effectively before, but it’s the ability…

    While the popular mythology of vampires seems to be all sparkly and romantic (to wit, the banal Twilight series) the creatures themselves have a darker past, tapping into a mythic, archetypal fear of things that stir in the dark. Modern beliefs stem from 1890’s author Bram Stoker and his sensational book Dracula, but the myth is widely believed to have been based on the life of 15th Century nobleman Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia and member of the House of Draculesti. A bloodthirsty and vicious soldier, he was dubbed Vlad the Impaler for his habit of impaling his enemies on stakes,…

It’s not just true in real life, it’s a trope of cinema too, from Cloud Atlas to The China Syndrome, if you go public with what’s really going on in your company or organization, it generally doesn’t end well. Kill the Messenger examines one of the most shocking misuses of power to ever come out of that most corrupt of agencies, the Central Intelligence Agency: In the 1990’s, the CIA was helping Nicaraguan rebels by helping…

    Children’s films are generally pretty darn benign, with little tension and few intense visual effects or scenes. Yeah, sure, the hero’s in peril from the monster or bad guy, but most children’s films take the Disney way out of 95% sweet, fun, light and 5% tension. Don’t want to scare the kiddies, after all. Except drama is all about tensions, and great storytelling is all about the protagonist being threatened and having to figure out how to overcome. A few years ago, the stop-motion animated feature Coraline offered just such a dark vision, a compelling and visually…

He is grieving in his swanky mansion, and while driving beautiful sport cars. One night there is a knock on…

In an interview with USA Today, Melfi described how difficult it was to reach Murray, who has no agent or manager. “You call a 1-800 number,” says Melfi. Weeks of unanswered messages later, the hopeful director called Murray’s lawyer. “What number do you got?” the lawyer asked. “The 800 number.” “Well that’s what I got,” said the lawyer. He recommended snail mail. Melfi obliged. After months, Murray set a date to talk…

A good example of this is former hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves), who is forced out of retirement when some not-very-smart gangsters kill his beagle – a gift from his dying wife. He then goes on a killing spree wreaking havoc and exacting revenge – all in the name…

    Yeah, this spot from one of Coca-Cola’s overseas branches (not sure which — Singapore?

A brilliant comedian with a lightning-fast mind, Lewis has bested interviewers with far more supple intellects than yours truly. To add to my anxiety, I went into the discussion having watched DRUNKS, the 1995 feature film in which Lewis reveals a rarely seen facility for soul-searing drama.

Terence Fisher, later to make his name at Hammer (Curse of Frankenstein, Horror of Dracula, etc.) was only just beginning his career, but he began it well: soon he would co-direct the gripping Hitchcockian yarn So Long at the Fair (1950), but before that came 40-minute short subject To the Public Danger, a thriller revolving around drunk driving.

Godard might assert it's one and the same. Certainly The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, Takahata's final film and one adapted from the classic 10th century Japanese folktale "The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter," leaves the earth behind; at its end, the princess who appears to a humble peasant returns to her place of birth, the moon.

    James Franco is one busy and multi-talented guy, and the project currently taking his focus is “Zeroville” - a film adaptation of the Steve Erickson novel, which Franco will star in and direct. The story is about a naive guy in the 60s who moves to LA, meets filmmakers and gets caught up in the seedy world of Hollywood. Franco is playing the lead role, and has shaved his head for the part. Now, he’s announced more of the cast who will be joining him on this journey. Funny guys Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Horatio Sanz and Craig Robinson are all on board, as…
  • First Trailer Released for AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON!

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:44 pm
    Marvel had intended on revealing the highly anticipated "Avengers: Age of Ultron" trailer during a commercial break next Tuesday during "Agents of Shield". Well, their plan was pushed to the waste side as the trailer leaked online yesterday and exploded like wildfire around the web. Marvel could either scour the internet, trying to pull the trailer down or own it and capitalize on the buzz. The chose the latter and on their twitter page, the clever words, "Dammit, Hydra" said it all. Disney then chose to blast out the trailer in the real HD version. Very smart moves yet again by the company…

    1 Oct 2014 | 5:51 pm
    A Bill Oberst Jr. retrospective Good day to you, poor put-upon listener. Welcome to another edition of The Horror Movie Show, hosted by scary guys Jerry & Mark. This particular show is entirely about one of our fave-raves & an ultra-busy horror actor: Bill Oberst Jr. The man has made a lot of movies & will undoubtedly make a lot more — including some that are not horror. But the dudes will just be concentrating on a half-dozen frighteners, along with a preview of the then-unavailable Circus of the Dead. All the movies discussed are from 2012 (Children of Sorrow, Abraham Lincoln…

    Anything good on the gogglebox? Howdy-do, gentle listeners. Your hosts Mark & Jerry offer something a little different on this episode of The Horror Movie Show: an all-television lineup. Beginning with some comments & questions about the early days of AMC‘s excellent zombie series The Walking Dead, the guys then try to figure out what the heck is going on Under the Dome. Is the latter series just making it up as it goes along, or is there some method to the madness? Next is the first of four British made-for-TV shows. In the Flesh is a very good take on a post-Zombie Apocalypse…

    Purging, fish stories & galaxy guardians Howdy-do folks. After taking a few weeks off, your tanned & rested hosts Jerry & Mark return with a powerhouse episode of The Horror Movie Show — now with 100% more Vitamin C! That should end the rumours the show causes scurvy. The guys begin by taking a baseball bat to the belaboured brains of The Purge: Anarchy, written & directed by James DeMonaco, the same dude who made the first in this series of fantasy flicks. While some might say this is brutality for the sake of ticket sales, there is more to this look-see into an evening…

    Blade Runner still sharp as a razor Hello, good day & welcome to The Horror Movie Show, hosted as ever by those madcap zanies Jerry & Mark. This episode features a variety of sci-fi & horror titles, so there is something for everybody. Or at least some body for every thing. The guys begin the show talking about the newest X-Men movie, the big-budget FX-fest one would expect. Is it better than one might reasonably expect? Is the Pope an agnostic? It’s possible.

    Scientology fiction Hallo folks! The Horror Movie Show is moderately proud to bring you episode #153, hosted as always by Mark & Jerry. This week the boys of summer discuss a handful of movies — mostly new, but one lovely chestnut as well. Tom Cruise‘s summer blockbuster is another science-fiction adventure: Edge of Tomorrow. Sure, the title sounds like a soap opera from the ’60s, but this tale of a guy caught in a temporal loop is a cross between Groundhog Day & Starship Troopers. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received a lukewarm reception on its release. Jerry & Mark…

  • Film Review – John Wick

    Sarah Ksiazek
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:15 am
    Keanu Reeves, guns, hitmen, and Russian bad guys: those are four things that you will see a lot of in John Wick. It is an independently-produced film that takes some risks behind the scenes, but comes out being a solid action film that is bound to be a must see for anyone who enjoys the genre. The film centers around John Wick (Keanu Reeves), a hitman who retired from the field when he met his wife (Bridget Moynahan). When his wife dies of an illness, he begins to go on with his life, picking up the pieces. It does not take long for trouble to find him. Iosef (Alfie Allen, Game of Thrones)…
  • Film Review – Laggies

    Adelaide Blair
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:11 am
    I saw Laggies last night and the film opens tomorrow (or today if you are reading it tomorrow), so I don’t have a lot of time to make my review as funny or as insightful as I usually would like. (Not that I am ever as funny or as insightful as I would like.) So, I’m just going to lay my cards out on the table. I think the future of the romantic comedy lies in the hands of directors like Lynn Shelton and Jerusha Hess – people who are making smaller films where the amount of money being spent isn’t so huge that a few risks can’t be taken. I like Lynn Shelton’s films a lot; she’s…
  • Film Review – Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

    Edward Davidson
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:07 am
    Fame, desperation, the need for strangers to admire you, the search for artistic truth, commerce versus art, the ability for an actor to completely commit to their craft and yet wreak havoc with their personal life, aging, magical realism, being stuck in one’s own head, these are all grappled with in the audacious new film Birdman (Or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). While ambitious, it turns out to be one of the most smartly entertaining and visually stunning movies in recent memory. Birdman will be gracing a lot of critical top 10 lists for the year and will be courted by a lot of…
  • Film Review – Ouija

    Allen Almachar
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:04 am
    Oujia (2014) is a horror movie that showcases the worst aspects of the genre. Like any other film, what makes a good scary movie is not the creepy images or the screams or the amount of blood splattered. It’s about interesting characters, a captivating story, and plot developments that throw us for a loop. Creativity and ambition is what really leaves an impact on an audience, regardless of what genre you’re working in. Ouija does not have this. In fact, it settles for the bare minimum. It doesn’t take any chances, it follows a routine, and with the dreaded PG-13 rating, it’s not…
  • Film Review – The Good Lie

    Allen Almachar
    24 Oct 2014 | 12:03 am
    I was nervous before I saw The Good Lie (2014). Trailers and advertisements had me thinking this was yet another film where a group of helpless minorities/people of color are “saved” by a heroic protagonist – who also happens to be white. This has been an issue in movies for far longer than some care to admit. We see the struggle of minorities through the perspective of the privileged class, which is a mistake because we are forced to empathize with the wrong person. Dances With Wolves (1990), The Last Samurai (2003), and The Help (2011) also suffer from this, and those are just off the…

    Immortal Ephemera

  • The Mad Doctor of Market Street (1942), Universal Horror With Lionel Atwill

    Cliff Aliperti
    20 Oct 2014 | 12:45 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal Ephemera The Mad Doctor of Market Street shows some promise, especially during its start, but torpedoes most of its intrigue through the over-the-top comedy efforts of Nat Pendleton and Una Merkel. Which of the two is more annoying is up for debate, but I’ll take Merkel. Despite her top billing, presumably awarded by contractual dictate, the true leading lady in The Mad Doctor of Market Street is Claire Dodd, who gets to do a lot more than usual in this, one of her final screen roles. Dodd is capable in her part, though nothing…
  • Men Against the Sky (1940) – Richard Dix’s Ace of Aces Goes Modern

    Cliff Aliperti
    15 Oct 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraFour stars share billing on RKO’s Men Against the Sky, and that seems about right. Richard Dix is the best known of the four, and is cast in the most glamorous role in the film, as alcoholic former “Ace of Aces,” Phil Mercedes. Men Against the Sky came a couple of years into Dix’s return to RKO, the studio that propelled him to his greatest talkie fame when he starred in Academy Award winning Best Picture Cimarron back in 1931. Ace of Aces (1933) was another popular role for Dix during his first stay with the…
  • One Night at Susie’s (1930) – Movie Compared to Short Story, Plus Helen Ware Biography

    Cliff Aliperti
    9 Oct 2014 | 3:18 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraFirst order of business, One Night at Susie’s is not 92 minutes long. At least the recently released DVD-R from Warner Archive isn’t, despite what it may say on the DVD case or their website. It runs a hair under 62 minutes. Problem is, nobody seems to agree upon how long it is, and never did. The IMDb goes with 85 minutes, as does an original 1930 review from Film Daily. Turner Classic Movies lists no running length on their database page, though they do list it at 62 minutes on a page including their upcoming…
  • Five and Ten (1931) Starring Marion Davies and Leslie Howard

    Cliff Aliperti
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:55 am
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraMGM’s Five and Ten, from a novel by Fannie Hurst, is a well-filmed, well-acted movie about a potentially exciting subject, but ultimately a story that didn’t focus on the topics or characters that I really cared about. Marion Davies stars as a Barbara Hutton like heiress, in what was being billed as her first wholly dramatic role in a talking picture. Her Jennifer Rarick falls in love at first sight with Berry Rhodes (Leslie Howard), a caddish architect of the established New York society, whose best trait is his…
  • TCM Preview October 2014 – A Look Inside My Now Playing Guide

    Cliff Aliperti
    30 Sep 2014 | 11:21 pm
    Written by Cliff Aliperti and originally published on Immortal EphemeraIt didn’t have to be, but October was primed to be a letdown after August’s Summer Under the Stars and September’s Pre-Code Fridays on TCM. On the plus side, there are several early talkies playing that I have yet to see and am anxious to get on my DVR, including many 1929-30 rarities. While the career of October’s Star of the Month, Janet Leigh, runs slightly later than range of movies I typically lobby for, she’s an actress that I enjoy, so I can’t complain. She also gives TCM a good reason to roll out Psycho…

  • Movie Review: Alain Resnais’ final film, Life Of Riley, is no swan song

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:45 am
    Alain Resnais’ final film, Life Of Riley, is the product of severely eclectic tastes, a clash of textures and styles that are only related by the fact that Resnais liked them. Resnais—who died earlier this year, aged 91—loved comics, so, in lieu of establishing shots, Life Of Riley uses drawings of the locations by So Long, Silver Screen author Blutch; in close-ups, the space behind the actor is replaced by crosshatching, mimicking the style of a comics panel. Resnais loved the artificiality of theater, so instead of realistic sets, the movie uses rough, impressionistic backdrops and…
  • Great Job, Internet!: Hey, it’s a bunch of horror movies remade as Goosebumps titles

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    For a generation of kids, the Goosebumps series of books was a gateway into the horror genre. Taking well-worn features of scary movies and stories (living ventriloquists, zombies, plant monsters replacing people), author R.L. Stine was able to repackage them into more acceptable fare for younger readers while still maintaining some of their fear-inducing elements. And now, over on their Tumblr site, If It Were Stine, Theodore Holmstead-Scott and Jude Deluca have gone the next logical step by literally repackaging popular horror franchises as Goosebumps titles.Holmstead-Scott and Deluca have…
  • Newswire: The Crow reboot finally comes out of its room

    Having spent the last four years or so locked in its room, presumably writing poetry by candlelight, The Crow reboot has finally emerged, much to the relief of its parents, who were getting really tired of having My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult thumping through the ceiling all the time. After a quick stop at Hot Topic to replace its old Nine Inch Nails shirt—long since faded to a totally conformist grey—the reboot made its way to the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, where producer Eli Pressman told The Hollywood Reporter that production on the film would hopefully begin “in the…

  • Great Job, Internet!: A fond look back at terrible, store-bought Halloween costumes of yore

    24 Oct 2014 | 10:40 am
    “I don’t think the real Radioactive Man wears a plastic smock with a picture of himself on it.” “He would on Halloween!” For generations of kids who grew up wearing cheap, plastic-smelling Halloween costumes from now-defunct companies like Ben Cooper and Collegetown, that bit of Simpsons dialogue hits very close to home. These costumes were as uncomfortable and flimsy as they were inauthentic and unconvincing, with vision-obstructing masks held up only by thin, constantly-breaking rubber bands. Nevertheless, Ben Cooper and Collegeville (and, to a lesser extent, Halco) remained…

With New York City as his bullet-riddled playground. The film, which I’ve heard is brilliant from a number of reliable sources, opens in theaters on January 2nd in the UK.

    Nobody is out of your “league” when you know the secrets to attraction.       We all share the same basic biology and neurology…even if our physical appearances differ. Unlocking the secrets to attraction will give you an advantage greater than any physical beauty.   In fact, women obsessed with their physical appearance are often the easiest to attract. Many have never learned the difference between lust and true attraction so they appeal strictly to men’s primitive instincts. Like a Jedi Mind Trick, it temporarily works.  The majority of men who…

    Avengers: Age Of Ultron star James Spader has spoken exclusively with Total Film about playing Marvel uber villain Ultron.  "There's a humerous aspect to him, which is something that drew me in from the very first conversation I had with Joss [Whedon]," Spader revealed. "In many ways he's a child, this character, because he's a brand new being who's just come to be. And yet, through artificial intelligence, he has an incredible capacity for knowledge. So he's a very powerful, smart child." Currently starring as a former government agent, turned criminal, in Sky Living show The Blacklist,…

    A new batch of images have arrived online from Disney’s Into The Woods, giving us a good look at the A-list cast in all its fairytale glory. First of all, there’s Anna Kendrick looking resplendent as Cinderella, while Chris Pine cuts a dash as a horse-riding Prince Charming. Then there’s Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf, who appears to be sporting a very sober outfit, as opposed to any sort of elaborate costume or CGI trickery. Not that Depp isn’t convinced he will be a visually arresting character when we finally get to see him in action… “Rob Marshall wasn’t afraid to let me take…

The trailer kicks off in similar style to the Avengers: Assemble trailer, with Loki’s “you were made to be ruled” speech replaced by the unnervingly mechanical tones of James Spader’s Ultron. There’s a huge amount to absorb following that, but watch out for Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armour, Cap’s broken shield, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch and lots, lots more… Take a look at the new trailer, below… Loki aside,…

    As a kid I remember watching the live action Batman (1989) and being very entertained.  It is probably because, as a kid, there wasn't much for me to think about or understand in the film. It is a highly stylized (for 1989), almost cartoonish version of Batman, with very weak characters and plot.  Michael Keaton does fine, as a rather bored Bruce Wayne, with some pretty funny one-liners.  His portrayal of The Batman, however, is a bland, kind of lame superhero.  But you know, even a lame Batman is cool.  I think it is that suit.The Batwing flying straight up....for no…

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

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

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

While “Girl in a Band: A Memoir” promises to look at all aspects of Gordon’s life – from childhood to her latest music project, Body/Head – the book will also explore the idea of partnership: what it means, and more so, “what happens when it dissolves,” says the press release. Presumably, alluding to the end of Gordon’s 27- year marriage with former Sonic Youth bandmate, Thurston…

Really, if a movie were made about The Ramones, we’d want it to be directed by the great Martin Scorsese. Then we started thinking, who would Scorsese cast?

    Ip Man 3 will start shooting in March of 2015. Here’s what Yen told Flicks and the City (via EP): “We’re starting next March… it’s going to be my last time around playing Ip Man. I think the fans have been waiting for quite a few years.

    While Beyonce looks like a slam dunk to win Album of the Year at this year's Grammys for her self-titled disc, she may well find herself snubbed in this top race, as was Justin Timberlake last year for his top-selling "The 20/20 Experience."

  • Leaving Circadia

    aaron
    20 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    Leaving Circadia portrays extended adolescence no differently than what we’ve seen before with a pacing and style that doesn’t take any chances. This romantic comedy strives to bring home the point of pursuing American dreams, but the film fails to see past its own hypocritical plasticity as it is just as predictable and light-hearted as any other date-night American rom-com.

    Equally clever and weird, The Congress examines the century-old fight for artistic autonomy by exploring the consumption of the celebrity through a contrarian message of hope in the film industry. Using both live-action footage and a plethora of animation styles, The Congress is bound to make an impact while joining the growing list of Hollywood satires.
  • The Giver

    7 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    For many middle-schoolers, The Giver was the first opportunity for readers to get a taste of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave and a bad taste for the ills of orthodoxy. The novel portrayed the travails of communist rhetoric about fairness and conformity with just a touch of magical realism. Fueled by the recent young adult film adaptations like Divergent, The Hunger Games, and even Harry Potter, the adaptation of The Giver falls into its own trap of “sameness”.

    The One I Love is not like the other romantic comedies you may have seen. That’s because romance is overshadowed by the creepiness and whimsy of what could have been a simple Twilight Zone episode. In what might be one of the most original films of the year, The One I Love is relentless in its twists and compelling with its challenging plot.

  • The Maze Runner – A Mixture of Lord of the Flies and Lost

    13 Oct 2014 | 2:33 pm
    If you have seen the movie Lord of the Flies and the popular TV show Lost, then the Maze Runner just might be a movie of interest for you. It seems like a fusion of the Lord of the Flies with a discarded plot of the TV show Lost, which is bound to get you in! But, there will be no escape either, until and unless all four entries of the Author James Dashner’s hit series of young-adult novels are taken into production. This first installment of the hit series does not waste any time in grabbing the attention of viewers. It all comes down to the movie’s compelling opening sequence, in which…

    If you are a fan of vampire movies you probably do know the ordinary blood sucking storyline, but Dracula Untold might just have a different surprise for you. The movie leads back to the 15th century in which a Transylvanian prince becomes the biggest bloodsucker the world may have ever seen. Vlad the lead actor played by Luke Evans, starts out as an ordinary family man who loves his homeland, his wife and kid. But, soon did he know that his family would come under threat by the Turkish warlords. Vlad tries his best to protect his family and his homeland. However, he cannot become a hero and…
  • The Giver – the True Pain and Pleasure of the “Real” World

    Chris D'souza
    8 Oct 2014 | 2:22 pm
    If you have watched The Hunger Games and Divergent, but didn’t find them interesting, The Giver is certainly a movie which can deliver the teen dystopia that’s right for you. The movie is based on the 1993 bestselling novel written by Lois Lowry. It grabs the attention of the viewers, but the movie lacks the action-driven spectacle and star sizzle The Hunger Games offered. However, The Giver still gets the point across in its serious and subtle way. The storyline of the movie isn’t something you haven’t seen before it starts with a place in a rigorously-controlled…

    If you are a horror fan, but have somehow missed “The Conjuring” last year, let us bring you up to speed with Annabelle. In The Conjuring, Annabelle was this creepy looking old doll that could bring hell to any household, just by sitting on a shelf. Towards the end of The Conjuring, the doll left a lasting impression, and there is no doubt deserved her own story, in her very own movie. Therefore, the end result here is a basic origin story set in the 1970′s. The doll makes her appearance as a typical vintage toy with a happy new owner, Mia. What happens next might blow your…

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

    The Cult of Matt and Mark

  • 137 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    19 Oct 2014 | 10:10 pm
    Our penultimate pick for our October "The horror... The horror.." marathon is the cult classic 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. A film that adds family life to the derangement of your standard slasher-killer horror film standby, TTCM is the inspiration for arguably better fair such as Rob Zombie's House of a 1000 Corpses. Sadly, most of the film is consumed in tedious chase scenes and waits until its last 20 minutes to truly reveal is genius. Worth a watch none-the-less.Download: 137 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

    The Horror... The Horror... continues this week when we review the highly regarded B-movie Killer Klowns from Outer Space, a movie that sets your expectations low by its premise. Matt retells his childhood clown trauma while Mark patiently listens, trying to provide healing.  Why are these clowns so creepy? Partly, its the monster movie in reverse. You see them in all their gratuity at the outset, and as its silliness wears off, the disturbia settles in.Download: 136 Killer Klowns from Outer Space

A minimalist fright-fest, gone are the typical gory tropes of traditional film horror, instead replaced by a meta-foreboding that will make you jump at the site of grainy old school television sets and the shrill ring of land line phones. Matt and Mark ponder Sadako's curse in the age of Youtube and wonder if its possible to curse an entire  planet.Download: 135 Ringu (Ring)

    Time to have a chat with Captain Howdy this week when Matt and Mark review the horror classic The Exorcist. Continuing on with our pre-Halloween "The Horror..." marathon, we discuss the disturbing Friedkin masterpiece that has few, if any, parallels. The Exorcist is strangely a movie for skeptics by skeptics, taunting one to ask terrifying questions about humanity's existence. While many think the opposite of love is hate, the opposite of love is indifference, and the demon occupier Pazuzu/Captain Howdy epitomizes this anti-human element by brutally perverting an innocent twelve year girl,…

A movie that defines the slasher genre in all of its cliche'd silliness. Mark is able to appreciate the films nuances, while Matt laments his inability to partake in Washington State's new-found freedom to herbally enhance for such cinematic exploitation. Nowadays, it has been out done by the horror auters it inspired (e.g. Eli Roth), it gives the gory gross out the old college try.Download:  133 Pieces

    “Bunnicula sounds like Dracula!” the characters of Bunnicula mention numerous times; I mention this because it becomes sort of a mantra in this ABC Weekend Special from 1982, putting a nail in the coffin that yes, Bunnicula is probably a vampire rabbit. But he’s also kind of a dick, more of a nuisance and a pest than a bona fide monster. First, it’s purported he shuts down the city’s plant, one of the biggest employers of the citizens. As Bunnicula follows the Monroe family, who own Harold the dog and Chester the cat, the viewer gets to see just how much of…

I think, if you follow horror news, you know the deal behind the original release of Nightbreed. Clive Barker’s original concept for the film, based heavily on his novella Cabal, was cut to shit by film executives providing financial support because it didn’t match the slasher aesthetic that they thought would pull in viewers. The original concept was lost on these producers; instead of…

It’s become clear that Disney just wants everyone to suffer.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa might work on both that already legendary comic and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but to compare the two would be a huge mistake; not only does Sabrina not take place in the same time period, it’s also not even in the same universe.

And to slash away any similarities to Afterlife with Archie, Aguirre-Sacasa has teamed up with artist Robert Hack to deliver artwork that matches the old Crime…

  • The worst film I ever saw… Inbred.

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

While attending the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, producer Ed Pressman told THR that the long-gestating project will begin production "in the spring."Describing The Crow as “the anti-Spider-Man,” Pressman added that “It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago, but the generation today doesn’t even know 'The Crow.'”Several actors have been linked to play the title character (made famous by the late Brandon Lee) over the years, including Mark Wahlberg, Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgard and…

    Earlier this year, director David Fincher was to re-team with his The Social Network screenwriter Aaron Sorkin for another biopic, this time centering on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Fincher has since left the project citing creative differences but, at the time, he had one demand; casting Christian Bale in the lead role. Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trance) was eventually tapped to helm and rumors continued that Bale was still in the running. Now, it appears to be official, as Sorkin recently spoke to Bloomberg News about the film and the casting of Bale. What we needed was the best…

    I’ve always wondered why certain crimes get more notoriety than others. With serial killers it’s understandable, they’re the most evil of evildoers and that fascinates us, but what of people who only kill one person, or a small group, and never kill again? Is it the murder, or the murderer, or both? Take Lizzie Borden’s 1892 ax murder of her father and stepmother. I’m sure she wasn’t the first woman to kill another human being with an ax, so why does she go down in infamy when others don’t? Slow news day? The weather? The townsfolk? If she was alive in the 20th or 21st century…

Yeah, I bought it, and then wished I hadn’t after I started watching the first one. It was the direction they took with it that destroyed my interest. They made it for kids. I’m not sure it all the way through. I think I may have done a lot of fast forwarding, but I do remember putting on the second, thinking for some reason it would be better. It wasn’t. It was the same tone, and I remember doing a lot of fast forwarding on it too.

    Given mans unwavering fascination with woman its no surprise that the female star acts as the anchor to a dominant portion of horror pictures.

The simple fact remains however women bring a unique appeal and certain sensual atmosphere to film that no man ever could. And its not all about gratuitous TA.

    Andrew Wickliffe
    4 Oct 2014 | 7:23 pm
    I Confess is unwieldy. Director Hitchcock is extremely precise in his composition, the same goes for Robert Burks' photography (especially the photography) and Rudi Fehr's editing (which changes in harshness based on the story's tone); sure, Dimitri Tiomkin's music is all over the place and intrusive, but it fits the script. George Tabori and William Archibald's ties together three very different stories–Confess is from a play, which explains some of the problems–but the end result is a disservice to the fine production values and some wonderful acting.

    After Hours is meticulous. Director Scorsese, editor Thelma Schoonmaker and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus work with exacting precision throughout, with the first third of the film serving to prepare the viewer for the rest. The film follows boring, regular guy Griffin Dunne as he impetuously pursues an attractive mystery woman (Rosanna Arquette) in Soho in the middle of the night.

She’s the reincarnation of his lost love and her exact importance to him isn’t clear until the last act. There’s a somewhat goofy moment where Edward Van Sloan, as Johann’s guardian and the closest thing to Karloff’s nemesis, reveals it all to David Manners (as Johann’s more appropriate suitor). Fortunately Van Sloan experiences the eureka moment just in time but not too early……

In the middle of a case, Hank receives the call that his mother has died and he has to return to the home town he left 20 years ago to attend her funeral, which reignites the strained relationship he has with his father Joseph (Duvall), the straight-laced small town judge who doesn't approve of Hank's career choices.

But director Danny Boyle single-handedly resurrected the genre with two new(ish) ideas: 1) they weren’t dead, 2) therefore, they could move really quickly. You know you’re in trouble from the genius opening sequence: vulnerability, tension, bewilderment, rage and blood – it marks a frantic and terrifying not-zombie film. Like zombie god George Romero, though, Boyle’s real worry is not the infected, it’s the living. Activists break into a research lab and free the wrong fucking monkeys. 28…

He intends to propose, but he’s routinely disrupted, eventually in quite a bloody manner, by a roving band of teenaged thugs. Kids today!

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:51 am
    Deadline is reporting that Warner Brothers is currently negotiating with Jeese Eisenberg to reprise his role of Lex Luthor is DC Comics upcoming super villain team-up movie Suicide Squad! This is interesting given that both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad will debut in 2016 both with Eisenberg as Luthor. His role is most likely not that large compared to other villains like Deadshot, Captain Boomerrang or even Harley Quinn but that's all speculation. Also,this means WB must be extremely impressed with Eisenberg's young take on such an iconic super villain to sign him into…

  • The Judge

    Dan Meier
    20 Oct 2014 | 11:32 am
    Robert Downey Jr. plays Robert Duvall Jr. in this courtroom-cum-family drama about a hotshot lawyer (Downey Jr.) who ends up defending his estranged father (Duvall), a respected judge accused of murder. The Judge is executive produced by Downey Jr., whose Iron Man performance stops just short of his flying around the courtroom firing lazers from his hands. Irony Man’s constant wise-cracking and cocksure charm feel out of step with the more serious elements of the film, which shifts uneasily in tone throughout. Balancing comedy, crime and drama takes a director of greater skill than the…

But when she is mistreated by the criminals she works for, Bob sets out to right some wrongs in society – equalise them, if you will – and it soon becomes apparent there’s more to him than meets the eye. Much of this film hangs on the superb performance of Washington who lends it a calm air of sophistication in spite of its B movie plot. It’s…

    14 Oct 2014 | 7:30 am
    The latest feature from independent production company Warp Films stars Jack O’Connell as a British soldier deployed to Belfast during the Troubles, who suddenly finds himself abandoned behind enemy lines. Like many films from the Sheffield-based film company, ’71 warps unpredictably from British realism into genre territory, shedding safety and composure like layers of body armour. The burnt-out backstreets of Belfast provide a suitably grim setting for the increasingly confined action, with a gritty sense of place made all the more impressive by the fact that it was actually…

    Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star as horrible couple Nick and Amy Dunne, in this adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel about Amy’s mysterious disappearance. Under a lesser director, this outlandish thriller could have been a disaster, or Before I Go to Sleep. But in the terrifyingly talented hands of David Fincher, Gone Girl goes from suburban satire to psycho-sexual thriller with icy smoothness. Each ridiculous revelation is so well played that you can’t help but admire its audacity, as it all comes together in a big boiling pot of Paul Verhoeven and Brian…

    The late Philip Seymour Hoffman stars in this espionage thriller about the search for Chechen immigrant Issa Karpov (Grigoriy Dobrygin), who is deemed a threat to security upon illegally entering Hamburg. Adapted from a John le Carré novel, A Most Wanted Man takes its time and eschews action in favour of authenticity. The result is an involving spy flick that will keep you stuck to your seat, if not teetering on the end of it. Politically complex and sensitively handled, the film avoids delineation between the good guys and bad guys, offering an atypically critical depiction of the war…

    During an interview with Bloomberg Television, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed that Christian Bale will star as Steve Jobs in the still untitled biopic. The film will be based on the ‘Steve Jobs’ biography by Walter Isaacson. Sorkin made it clear in the interview that Bale was his first choice for the demanding role. He didn’t even make him audition! “We needed the best actor on the board within a certain age-range and that’s Chris Bale … I couldn’t be more excited. He really is a phenomenal actor. He didn’t have to audition. It was just a meeting.” Obviously, Christian…

    Poor Keanu Reeves. Several years ago, he was one of the biggest movie stars in the business. Starring in hit movies like, Speed, The Matrix, and Point Break. Everyone believed his success at the box office would continue, but things started to go downhill in the early 2000s. He’s had a number of flops in recent years, most notably last year’s 47 Ronin, which failed miserably at the box office. The film lost Universal over $150 million. Obviously, with the lack of success recently, big studios are afraid to work with Keanu Reeves. The 50-year-old actor (yes he’s really 50)…

    The dramatic pictures of a slimmed down Mark Wahlberg created quite the buzz on the internet, so we couldn’t wait for the trailer. There’s already talk surrounding the fact that Wahlberg might get an Oscar nomination for this role. The remake of the 1974 drama is written by William Monahan (The Departed) so there is potential. Wahlberg who has really showed his acting chops in the last five years (Transformers aside) put a lot of work into this role. Wahlberg’s character is a literature professor with a bad gambling addiction. He says that convincing audience’s that he is a teacher…

    We are now less than a month away from the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1. As a huge fan of the franchise, I have been trying my best to contain my excitement, but the new teaser released this week has pushed me over the edge. The clip is just 40-seconds long, well, really it’s not even that long because Doritos had to get their cheesy promotion in. But that’s okay, because the rest of the clip is jam-packed with action. Even Peeta makes a brief appearance in this teaser, and we finally see the difficult choice Katniss must make. When she sees that Peeta is still…

    The good news? Step Brothers 2 will happen. The bad news? It’s not going to happen any time soon. Director Adam McKay sat down for an interview with Collider recently and he was asked if fans should expect a sequel to Step Brothers. His answer was both surprising and a little disappointing. He admitted that they already have an outline for the sequel, but made it clear that he’s only focusing on original movies at the moment. Which is actually probably a smart move, especially when you consider the fact that a lot of fans were disappointed with Anchorman 2. You can read…

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

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

Set in the year 2075, the story follows a crew of ‘space janitors’ who collect debris floating in space as the increased amount of garbage now poses a threat to spacecrafts. As the series progresses it tackles many of the interesting social constructs that can occur with the advent of space tourism and living. In addition, the character development is excellent for every main character introduced throughout the series. For an anime made in 2003, the animation is great and I…

    Oldboy is an interesting, story driven, South Korean movie. The main character (Oh Dae-Su) gets kidnapped and imprisoned without knowing the person behind the kidnapping or the reason for imprisonment. The plot is the driving entertainment factor in this movie along with some incredible action sequences. Oldboy has unique characters and an original story that will keep you guessing until the end.

    Luther is the story of a genius detective, similar to Sherlock, but with a much darker tone than what you usually see on the telly. 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…

And now, it seems he’s back accusing Hollywood of being untalented. “…the problem has always been the studios,” Lucas told Charlie Rose. “Although the beginning of the studios, the entrepreneurs who ran the studios were sort of creative guys.

Described as the best blockbuster of the summer it is not only hilariously funny but comes with a fantastic soundtrack and some of the most amusing characters ever seen in a superhero movie. In fact, it is the talking racoon – Rocket, who exists as a result of a science experiment, the humanized tree – Groot, that has the ability to speak only three words for the entire of the film (“I am Groot”), the sensitive human -Peter Quill, who we see…
  • Film Review: Boyhood

    Simon Fallaha
    7 Aug 2014 | 1:40 am
    Simon Fallaha looks at Richard Linklater’s magnum opus: a tale of loss, love and livelihoodThere are two ways to look at Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. You could see it as the real-time life story it promotes itself as, a unique, psychological and philosophical exploration of the ups and downs of readjustment when growing up and getting older. Alternatively, you could just shrug your shoulders and dismiss it is as “another coming of age flick” with a gimmick, a showcase for pretentious, self-consciously artsy natter. It’s a familiar trend in Linklater’s…

    Director: Bryan Singer.Cast: Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen. The X-Men franchise has been a bit uneven in terms of quality with the X-Men series since original director Bryan Singer left the franchise to direct Superman Returns (and we all know how that turned out). Some have been amazing (First Class) while others have been appalling (The Last Stand and Origins: Wolverine), but now Singer returns to reclaim his throne and deliver the most ambitious X-Men film to date.The film begins in a dystopian…

    Director: Pascal Chameuil Starring: Pierce Brosnan, Imogen Poots, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Sam Neill.‘A Long Way Down’ has a host of extremely talented actors, but not even that can save it. The adaptation of Nick Hornby’s 2005 book tries to stand up to the book – it really does. But it manages to fall on its face before the first half hour is even over.The film tells the story of four people who find themselves on top of Topper’s House on the same night, all intending to do the same thing – to end their lives The four people – Martin (Brosnan), Maureen (Collette), Jess…

    6 Oct 2014 | 12:18 pm
    The tremendously skilled Vishal Bhardwaj packs a terrific punch with Haider. His technical precision is palpable in every frame. I had no reason to complain about the length. He creates and builds upon every character, every scene with hearty indulgence, letting us soak up and savor every bit of it.How he adapts this Shakespearean family drama to tell the story of Kashmir, adds a feather to his perfected storytelling!His poetic rendition and minimalistic tone added to the overall impact. Bhardwaj's direction judiciously and compellingly emphasized reaction over action, which helped connect…
  • Khoobsurat (2014) Review

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

    5 Sep 2014 | 9:35 am
    Riding high on emotion and melodrama, Mary Kom packs in enough punch to keep you rooting for the film and our protagonist till the end.I'm not sure how much of this real-life tale was fictionalized but director Omung Kumar takes enough cinematic liberties to hold the audience's interest and get its cash registers ringing.For a first-time director, Mary Kom is an above-average attempt. The screenplay is pacy, leaving no room for distractions except the dramatic flashbacks of Mary's child delivery scenes, which intended to create a build up, but end up all sizzle no steak.If there's only one…

    There’s something wrong with Esther.  And probably everybody else in this movie.The movie Orphan is something I can only describe as a quandary. Parts of it are marvelously crafted, others not so much.  Yet, for all of its divisive qualities that would make many see it as a mixed bag, I still find it to be an enjoyable tale of suspense, mistrust and some very selfish people getting what they deserve at the hands of a sadistic, cruel and manipulative little girl who is definitely not who she seems.  It is a film that paints a very elaborate picture of a highly…

Seriously.

    Yeah, I know, leading you into a scene (using a innocent kid, no less) and then throwing a jump scare at you with fancy quick cut editing is a bit of a cheat, but hey, it kind of works. Anyhoos.

I guess Harry Potter was wielding some weak magic, since he apparently didn’t manage to kill the old broad in the first movie after all.

It sure seems that way, because that’s exactly what we now have with the prequel “Annabelle.” And if you think making a feature-length movie out of the backstory of a sinister doll—from the director…

    Remake. The very word can send a shiver down a film fan’s spine. It’s just a further sign that Hollywood is no longer original, that they must pillage classics for ideas to recycle. But maybe the idea of remaking a film isn’t such a bad idea. If no one felt the need to tell The Wizard of Oz in a different way, the only film versions of that story would be wholly unremarkable. The legendary Judy Garland film wouldn’t exist. As a result of a remake, we have two different but excellent versions of Scarface. So what are the instances where a remake is warranted? It may be…

    Something about Halloween just makes you want to be scared. It’s the one time of year when it feels truly fitting. And nowhere is that more easy to accomplish than with a horror movie. Whether it’s one about vampires, zombies, werewolves, ghosts, witches, or murderers, there is never a shortage of films to see. Horror has been around since the start of film in the 1890’s, with many short movies by the director Georges Méliès focusing on the subject. Many of these are still just as frightening today as they must have been when they first came out. Some great examples are…

With two acting powerhouses to anchor its shaky narrative, The Judge is a pleasant break for both Robert Downey Jr and his fans. And it is a lot better than some cantankerous complain-boxes might have led you to believe. It is a film of uncontaminated smiles paired gently with a sincere instances of quivering…

    by Tony Dayoub "Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see." That's a piece of advice offered in Stonehearst Asylum to the film's ostensible hero, Dr. Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess). It's also the most important suggestion made by author Edgar Allan Poe to his reader in the droll short story that the movie is loosely based on, "The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether." Directed by Brad Anderson (The Call), Stonehearst Asylum is more clever than scary. But there's a lot to be said for a well plotted thriller in a time when too many horror movies hinge more on shocking their…

    by Tony Dayoub Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) is a rare and unexpected delight from director Alejandro González Iñárritu, a filmmaker who has made a habit of producing dense, multi-plot storylines that converge in their final moments to offer some Great Truth. Birdman somehow feels both narrower and more transcendent. When the score's percussion takes over, a stifling anxiety sets in. When its symphonic sounds take precedence, Birdman soars. There is no need to clumsily converge at the conclusion because the linkage between Birdman's subplots is already baked into its…
  • Movie Review: The Book of Life (2014)

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:22 am
    by Tony Dayoub Many years ago, I made the mistake of dismissing The Nightmare Before Christmas as a visually spectacular but hollow animated musical. Yeah, I didn't get it. It isn't that nostalgia has made the movie feel closer to a classic or that over time its style has eclipsed its substance. In a fundamental way, I've come to realize, its style is its substance. I shall not make the same mistake with The Book of Life. While not the animation game-changer that The Nightmare Before Christmas may have been, The Book of Life perhaps has even more room to grow into a classic in the coming…
  • Movie Review: Fury (2014)

    16 Oct 2014 | 2:05 pm
    by Tony Dayoub Writer-director David Ayer crafts another fine look at the way shared violent experiences form a tenuous brotherhood among men with Fury. Set in the final days of World War II's European Theater, the movie follows a Sherman tank, christened "Fury," and its battle-hardened crew led by Staff Sergeant Don "Wardaddy" Collier (Brad Pitt). Among Wardaddy's crew are the God-fearing "Bible" (Shia LaBeouf), wisecracking "Gordo" (Michael Peña), and the crude "Coon-Ass" (Jon Bernthal). After losing one of their drivers, the tight-knit unit is saddled with a virtual rookie plucked from…

  • 30 Day Blogging Challenge: My Dream Job

    22 Oct 2014 | 9:06 pm
    Actually, I can’t decide on what I want to do. I have lots of dream jobs. At first, I want to become a lawyer maybe because I admire how they talk as if they are the smartest people. Then I got fascinated with the stars, moon and everything related to astronomy. That’s why I imagined becoming the first Filipino astronaut. I can say that I’m smart however I’m not physically ready for that. When I was in high school I enjoyed my chemistry class; doing an experiment. I love mixing chemicals so I also dreamed to become a scientist. Now I’m taking Bachelor in Medical Laboratory Science.

  • The Maze Runner: Short Movie Review

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:14 pm
    Usually, Hollywood does little justice to novels. Sometimes, they change some of the scenes and elements from the book for some reason like what they did to The Maze Runner. At first, I was disappointed because I expected to see things that I read from the book. But later on I realized that these changes made the story more realistic and understandable for those   who don’t know all the info that comes with reading the books. Well, I will not tell the story anymore instead I will give you the strength of the movie. • They really did a good job in casting because the characters are well…

  • The Evil Dead

    22 Oct 2014 | 2:19 pm
    The Evil Dead     "The Evil Dead", structurally speaking, is a horrendous film. Production design is virtually non-existent, as costuming, make-up, and setting were seemingly thrown together at a moment's notice, with little physical effort or any exertion of imaginative thought. The lone cabin in the heart of the woods does entail some feeling of isolation and trepidation; however, it is lost once the "demons" first appear and one realizes that the setting is not so much fearful, as much as what is going on inside the internal dwellings of the characters.    Not to…
  • First Knight

    21 Oct 2014 | 3:32 pm
    First Knight      Europe's Medieval period of history is one filled with sword fighting, exquisite architecture, and ultimately, romanticism. Of course, this is the idea that prevails from numerous depictions in the art of film. Although these aspects surely existed, this age is best characterized as a time of great adaption and substantial growth for humanity through religion, literature, and a number of fine arts.     King Arthur is a man that can be ascribed with the same misconceived notions that this era of history justifies. For, his life's work has…
  • Dracula Untold

    15 Oct 2014 | 4:10 pm
    Dracula Untold ★1/2    Classic literature is a beautiful thing to behold. This stems from the fact that today's literary realm pales in comparison, as far as pure talent is concerned, and lacks the depth of intellectual prowess that only a name such as Leo Tolstoy can summon. Characters are cherished and live on in the hearts of many, while inevitably becoming the focal point of countless, and rather unnecessary, remakes and tales of a re-fashioned manner. Needless to say, no one has dared to attempt a re-telling of a novel as highly distinguished as War and…

    13 Oct 2014 | 5:46 pm
    Transformers: Age of Extinction  Zero Stars   "Transformers: Age of Extinction" is a long winded nightmare of a film. This commercially successful franchise has drained the joy and substance from the art itself, all while being fed by the mindless general audiences who only care for simplistic and rather vacuous entertainment. It will not be long before we are inevitably converted back to the age of grunting and killing small rodents with over-sized clubs.   Naturally, one would have higher expectations for this picture, considering the casting of Mark Wahlberg and…

Of course, this warmth does not stem from the film itself, as the resolution would warrant a profusion of emotions, most of which identify with sorrow and despair. This contentment emanates from the reality that after all these years, this picture still remains a favored piece of cinema for many, and continues to…

    The long awaited Birdman hits theaters today. Find out what Andrew thought."Everything is just so....umm...bright in this liquor store."There’s a moment late in Mexican writer-director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s surreal, highly theatrical black comedy of the New York theater scene, Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), which speaks volumes to the director’s contempt for his detractors.  An aged, Pauline Kael-esque theater critic (Lindsay Duncan), engages actor and director Riggan Thompson (Michael Keaton) over the validity of his adaptation of Raymond Carver’s…

Mr. Reeves hasn't been this good since The Matrix. It's true. John Wick lets him break his recent string of cinematic flops with a movie that truly takes action to another level. In fact, this is the first domestic movie in years that captures the old school vengeance style while seamlessly mixing it with unadulterated hand to hand combat and bad ass gun play that rivals anything you've seen in cinemas for quite some…

    There’s something wrong with Esther.  And probably everybody else in this movie.The movie Orphan is something I can only describe as a quandary. Parts of it are marvelously crafted, others not so much.  Yet, for all of its divisive qualities that would make many see it as a mixed bag, I still find it to be an enjoyable tale of suspense, mistrust and some very selfish people getting what they deserve at the hands of a sadistic, cruel and manipulative little girl who is definitely not who she seems.  It is a film that paints a very elaborate picture of a highly…

Seriously.

    Leeds based Samir Alikhanizadeh, aka Happa, has been making waves in the UK underground scene with his bass heavy, industrial techno music. And aside from all the enthusiastic conversations he’s happened to stir throughout the music community (Four Tet, Mary Anne Hobbs and James Blake are endorsing him!), people are talking about his age. He’s only 16, but don’t let it distract you from his music! It’s quite a forceful and ominous presence, with the stomach punching bass lines that help to create a violent and gritty resonance.

  • Political Irresponsibility is Killing the Aral Sea

    12 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    The Aral Sea was once the world’s fourth-largest inland sea. It exists now as an expanding toxic desert that straddles the borders of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. Often referred to as ‘the quiet Chernobyl,’ the Aral Sea is understood now as one of the worst man-made environmental disasters in history. The sea first began to shrink in the 1960s, when the Soviet Union decided to divert the two rivers, the Amu Darya and Syr Darya, which brought glacial melt and snowpack from the Hindu Kush and Pamir Mountains of the southeast. The reasoning behind the Soviet decision was to reinvigorate…

    The animation world will always be indebted to Hayao Miyazaki. He’s the Kurosawa of animation films. Miyazaki’s last creation is a tale about love for life and an aircraft designer’s obsession with the airplanes. The film is loosely based on the life of Japanese aeronautical engineer, Jiro Horikoshi, who played a crucial role in shaping Japan’s aeronautical industry. The characters in the film are truly in love with their craft just like Miyazaki himself.I always feel sad while watching even some of the more popular animation films from the west as it gives me an impression that…

This time you see a couple of cops with another hand-cuffed character, the one who was in initial shot but you’re unable to recognize him given the dark. There’s a prosecutor, who is in charge of the investigation, a cop, a doctor, gendarmerie forces, grave diggers, a driver and…

    I don’t think Dardenne brothers have ever committed the sin of trying to impress the audience, to mystify them, or for that matter to wow them. They make films with simple narratives but focus more into deciphering the characters in their movies and the emotions they’re going through. The Kid with a Bike (Le gamin au vélo) is another such attempt by the duo that has made movies in the past on adolescent themes, such as Le fils and L’enfant. The Kid with a Bike portrays the anguish of a 12 years old, Cyril, who is unable to come to term with the fact that his father has abandoned him.

The episode starts right away with the action in the first few seconds as the Doctor and Clara find that the door to the TARDIS is significantly smaller looking than usual. When they try to go through it, they discover that the dimensions of the TARDIS have been altered and it is significantly smaller than usual (on the outside, of course). It’s actually a rather comical scene to see the otherwise solemn and brooding Peter Capaldi trying to fit in and out of this tiny TARDIS.

Christine was a diligent student and grew up to be a good professional. After she started working, she asked her mother to leave her job and take rest. Her mother was proud to have a daughter like her. Things were moving on. One day, Christine’s…

    The post Racism, a blot on the civilisation appeared first on WiseFreaks. “They say nature has its rules. The ones coming and leaving, Have not much in their will.” Some of us are born in the greatest of the places with the greatest riches surrounding us, while others are bound to face the harsh and scorching realities of life. Geography tells us about various raced that have evolved around Earth. But history tells us about the racism that has crept behind this evolution and has established itself as its diseased counterpart. The origin of this deathly concept began when Americans…

    A decent-length Into the Woods featurette has been released, offering plenty of new footage from the upcoming musical. Disney’s adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s stage musical sees Rob Marshall (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Nine) direct quite the cast, including Anna Kendrick, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt and Johnny Depp. We’re still in the air with this one. While the footage shown off in the Into the Woods featurette below does provide some confidence, we’re worried it all just seems a little… tacky? Probably not the word we’re looking for, but the…

    It’s official: Christian Bale will be playing Steve Jobs. The confirmation came straight from the mouth of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), who will pen the upcoming biopic for director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire). “What we needed was the best actor,” says Sorkin in an interview with Bloomberg. In case you hadn’t heard by now, the film will consist of three scenes that take place backstage before the launch of a famous Apple product. Since it’s a Sorkin screenplay, it comes as no surprise to…

    The first Insidious: Chapter 3 trailer has been released by Focus Pictures, giving us our first footage from the third film in the horror franchise. This threequel is actually a prequel, set before the haunting of the Lambert family. It tells the story of how psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) contacted the dead to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity. Dermot Mulroney plays the girl’s father. These films are all starting to look way too similar to each other; James Wan’s brand of horror is certainly paying off. Interestingly,…
  • Fury REVIEW

    War is hell and it changes men. They’re well known facts that war films have driven home for years. Fury, a WWII drama from writer-director David Ayer (Harsh Times, End of Watch), delivers those familiar messages in familiar ways, but delivers them effectively and confidently. We meet up with the crew of an M4A3E8 Sherman tank, “Fury”, during the last months of World War II in 1945. The team consists of Staff Sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt), gunner Boyd “Bible” Swan (Shia LeBeouf), loader Grady “Coon-Ass” Travis (Jon Bernthal), and…

    It seems every bit of news lately has something to do with Marvel or something to do with a film getting turned into a television series. So, how about another of the latter? Hitch, the 2005 comedy starring Will Smith, Eva Mendes and Kevin James, is being reworked as a half-hour, single-camera series for Fox. EW confirmed the news, reporting that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are executive producing with Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont. Kaplan and Elfont, writing and directing partners known for their work on Can’t Hardly Wait and Josie and the Pussycats, will also pen the script.
