Video On Demand: Five Great New Releases You Can Now Watch

15 September 2014 7:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

September tends to be a relative dead spot at the theaters. Multiplexes are still housing the last vestiges of the onslaught of the summer and quietly preparing for the slow march of prestige pictures that come with the fall and winter months. So instead of spending the time and effort to make your way out to your local theater to catch a screening of Dolphin Tale 2, why not stay in and watch one of these stellar movies from earlier this year on demand?

Ida

Director Pawel Pawlikowski made not only the most somber road movie of the year, but shot it in gorgeous black and white. The film follows its titular character (Agata Trezbuchowska), an orphaned nun, who must travel to visit her only living relative before she is allowed to take her vows. Pawlikowski uses this fish out of water tale to explore the complexity and sinful nature »

‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ Review

15 September 2014 8:03 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, Jeffrey Wright, Slimane Dazi, Carter Logan | Written and Directed by Jim Jarmusch

It’s fair to say that after Twilight many horror fans thought it was time to retire the vampire for a while. The fact is the point about the fanged ones is that they tend not to die when they are meant to, so what they need is something to make them a little more relevant in the world of monsters. A very good way to do just that is to take Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston and make one of the best vampire movies in years, though don’t expect too much horror in Only Lovers Left Alive, it’s much too sophisticated for that.

When Adam (Tom Hiddleston) an underground musician reaches the pits of depression it takes his lover Eve (Tilda Swinton) to give »

Blu-ray Review – Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

15 September 2014 12:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Only Lovers Left Alive, 2013.

Written and Directed by Jim Jarmusch.

Starring Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Anton Yelchin, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt and Jeffrey Wright.

Synopsis:

A depressed musician reunites with his lover, though their romance – which has already endured several centuries – is disrupted by the arrival of uncontrollable younger sister.

Christopher Marlowe, 16th century playwright, lives in modern day Tangier. He reminisces about his plays and discusses his former friends and contemporaries like Byron and Shakespeare. He also looks great for a man over 400 years old and drinks blood because he is a vampire. Welcome to a new kind of vampire tale, Jim Jarmusch style.

Marlowe is a friend of Eve (Tilda Swinton), a vampire who is parted from her lover Adam (Tom Hiddleston) when the film begins. Adam lives in Detroit, an underground musician, unwilling to move on to the digital age but this isn’t the only aspect in which he is disgruntled. »

Snowpiercer The Oddest, Most Awesome Sci-Fi Release In Decades Hits Oct. 21

2 September 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Snowpiercer is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on October 21st, and if there is one movie to make sure is on your home video release radar, this is it. You’ve probably heard quite a bit about this one, and it’s one of the oddest and, if the critical consensus can be believed, most awesome sci-fi releases in quite a while.

Odd, because it pushes the limits of indie films, and their theatrical releases and marketing efforts. Though you’ve likely heard of the film, it wouldn’t have taken that much effort to avoid doing so, and you may not have even had much opportunity to catch it in theaters. Even with the recent upswing in recognizable names in films that are indie, indie-eque, microbudget, or whatever else, a tense sci-fi effort with Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, and more still seems like it ought »

10 Most Hated Doctor Who Characters

29 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

Reactions to the new Doctor – the 12th, not including John Hurt’s War Doctor and the 10th Doctor’s petulant refusal to regenerate – have been pleasingly positive since the first episode of the eighth series aired on August 23rd, after some fears that younger fans of the rebooted Doctor Who would hate their new, older-looking hero.

In fact, for a show that’s been running for fifty years, Doctor Who hasn’t attracted a vast amount of negativity – it’s a deeply loved family-oriented programme that even survived cancellation, a sixteen years hiatus and a failed reboot for an American audience.

When the reboot finally succeeded, it was under the stewardship of Russell T. Davies and the BBC, thank goodness. Coming in 2005, it was also under the auspice of the Internet, and the Internet is never exactly coy about making its feelings known about television shows that it loves »

27 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Boasting a 95% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer has become one of the most critically heralded films of the year. And now it's the first to be sent to the Academy of Arts and Sciences for consideration for awards season.

Who Review: 12th Doctor Debut (Spoilers)

24 August 2014 10:28 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Peter Capaldi made his much-anticipated Dr. Who debut this past weekend, stepping into the Tardis as the 12th Doctor. Did he live up to expectations, and did the season premiere episode “Deep Breath” give year 8 a strong start? Read on to find out more, but beware of spoilers.

 

 

The eighth season of Doctor Who aired this weekend and we finally got to see Peter Capaldi as the Doctor. Most of the pre-episode buzz had been highly positive for Capaldi. Now that we’ve actually see him in the episode “Deep Breath”, the question of every Whovian’s tongue is “Was he any good?”

 

Fear not fans. Despite having to meet excessively high expectations, Capaldi does not disappoint.  It’s hard to get a handle on what his version of the doctor will be like since the character spends most of the episode in a post-regenerative state of confusion, but he »

5 Geeky Things We Want This Week, The Modern Doctors Edition

22 August 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Season 8 of the relaunched Doctor Who premieres tomorrow, and we cannot wait! Word is that Peter Capaldi is a darker and crazier iteration of the last Time Lord. Our writer Billy Fisher thinks he's going to be the "Darth Vader of the Doctors," which, we don't even know what that means, but it sounds amazing. But before we launch headlong into new adventures with a new Doctor, let's pause for a moment to honor the four men who have been the Doctor in the New Who era, and maybe buy some stuff to remember them by.

The Other Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver

John Hurt was the War Doctor, the one who fought the Daleks for (Time) Lord knows how long before ending the Time Wars by completely wiping out both the Daleks and his own race. That is some heavy shit. But he did what he did in the name of peace and sanity, »
