'A Most Wanted Man' (2014) Movie Review

28 October 2014 2:36 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Had a film the caliber of A Most Wanted Man been made in the late '60s or early '70s, with a name such as Jean-Pierre Melville or Alan J. Pakula, directing it would already be a part of the Criterion Collection, celebrated for the last 40 years as a classic. Whether it will stand so tall 40 years from now is a mystery, but digging into a film of this nature in the midst of today's modern cinematic age is pure joy for cinema lovers, and it's the third film in a row from director Anton Corbijn (Control, The American) deserving of such lofty praise. Adapted from John le Carre's novel of the same name by screenwriter Andrew Bovell (Edge of Darkness), A Most Wanted Man is a slow burn, spy thriller examining a post 9/11 world wherein the idea of friend or foe is a blurry, political mess and the »

Netflix readies Australasian service

23 October 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

After months of conjecture Netflix looks highly likely to launch in Australia and New Zealand in late March or early April.

That.s according to distributors who are negotiating film and TV content deals with the Us streaming giant.

The new season of House of Cards would be among the SVoD service.s first offerings Down Under, potentially a strong lure for subscribers.

The third series of the political drama, which stars Kevin Spacey, Law & Order.s Jenna Stern, Robin Wright and Nathan Darrow, is expected to launch in the Us in February, as did the earlier series.

Foxtel aired the first two series of the Netflix production licensed via Sony Pictures TV, but Netflix withheld the rights to the third season.

However Netflix's Australian feed will bear little similarity to the domestic service, at least for the first year or so, because Foxtel owns the SVoD rights to most of the desirable shows. »

15 Outlandish New-But-Familiar-Sounding TV Pilots

17 October 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who says TV programmers have run out of ideas?

Why, just in the last week, the trade papers have announced deals and casting for as many as 15 new reboots spinoff series and specials. Some sound like familiar shows, others like mutant Frankenstein hybrids of familiar shows. We'll leave it to you to decide which of these programs sound like must-see-tv and which sound like much-skip-tv.

"Care Bears and Cousins." Fuzzy is the new black at Netflix, which is reviving the candy-colored kiddie cartoon series but adding some new characters. No, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are not going to have a threesome with one of them.

"Cheerleader Death Squad." The CW has ordered this series, from the showrunners behind "Desperate Housewives" and "Under the Dome" (that'd be Marc Cherry and Neal Baer, respectively) about an elite prep school where the pep squad is made up of spies-in-training. Dan Truly ("Blue »

Kim Dickens joins House of Cards

17 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coming off her recent performance in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, actress Kim Dickens will be joining the third season of the Netflix series House of Cards. Currently there isn’t a lot of details about what her role in the series will be, but considering her extensive television work there’s no doubt that she’ll fit right in with the likes of Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright.

Besides her role in Gone Girl, Dickens has most recently appeared in episodes of Sons of Anarchy as well as a star on the HBO series Treme. She also starred in another HBO series, Deadwood, and has made appearances on Friday Night Lights and Lost.

Season 3 of House of Cards is set to return in February. The series is coming off of 13 Emmy nominations for it’s second season which is four more than it got for its debut season. Cards »

Gone Girl Star Signs On For House Of Cards Season Three

16 October 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix’s Emmy-winning drama House of Cards is known for playing its cards (eh, get it?) rather close to its chest. Over the course of two excellent seasons, viewers were kept on tenterhooks in the build-up to each respective premiere as the production team kept story-related tidbits largely under wraps.

And, thankfully, that still remains the case by and large. Although, TV Line has learned today that the show has added Kim Dickens to its proverbial deck for season three. We understand that the actress will have a recurring role in the political drama, though it remains unclear as to what the role will be exactly.

Nevertheless, Dickens, who has previously appeared in other shows including Sons of Anarchy and Treme, can currently be seen as Detective Rhonda Boney in David Fincher’s Gone Girl. On House of Cards, she will join series regulars Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Michael Gill. »

A Look Back at ‘Moneyball’: A Fine Balance of the Old School and New School

7 October 2014 4:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With it being October, our site will be featuring lots of great writing on the Horror genre. This month doesn’t just bring the scares for me though, it also brings the postseason playoffs for my favorite sport: Baseball. While I won’t have as much on the line this year as my Braves played a sub-.500 season (still waiting on them to call me back and offer me the General Manager position), I still enjoy watching the other teams battle it out for the World Series. So in honor of all that, it seemed appopriate to take a look back at the 2011 film Moneyball, which followed Oakland Athletic’s General Manager Billy Beane and the way he and his front office embraced computer-generated analysis in 2002 to create a winning team out of a low budget and undervalued players.

One of the biggest achievements that will cement this film in »

Baltasar Kormákur to Direct Viking Action Drama Vikingr for Universal

7 October 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2 Guns and Contraband director Baltasar Kormákur will be treading familiar territory in an upcoming film.  Universal Pictures announced today that it has picked up Vikingr, an action drama revolving around the early days of Viking life that Kormákur co-wrote and will direct.  The project has been brewing for some time, and is close to Kormákur given his Icelandic heritage.  The story is based on the classic tales of the legendary Icelandic Sagas, “which document larger than life heroes, adventures and battles of early Nordic settlers, as well as daily life in the Viking age.”  The film will focus on Viking culture as a whole on a scale that is “both intimate and epic.” Kormákur most recently directed Everest for the studio, which is a survival drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, and Robin Wright that will be released next September.  No word on whether Vikingr will be his next film, »

Watch This Doc About 'Star Wars' Toys On Vimeo Now

3 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The only thing "Star Wars" fans love more than parsing J. J. Abrams's Twitter feed for spoilers is "Star Wars" toys. If you were a kid in the '70s and early '80s without your own light saber or Han Solo figurine, well, recess was probably not your favorite part of the school day. This obsession hasn't let up for some people, who even as adults covet highly collectible "Star Wars" merch from back in the day, go to conventions to check out new offerings, and much more.

"Plastic Galaxy," which is currently available for rent or purchase on Vimeo, dips into the wild world of "Star Wars" collectibles, with interviews from diehard collectors, experts, and even the toy designers who worked for Kenner, the Og "Star Wars" toy designer.

Vimeo is known as an excellent way to watch and share online videos - as seasoned online screening watchers, »
