Kill The Messenger Review

7 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Michael Cuesta

Cast: Jeremy Renner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Andy Garcia, Jena Sims, Robert Patrick

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 112 minutes

Synopsis: A reporter becomes the victim of a smear campaign after exposing a link between CIA backed Contra rebels in Nicaragua, Nicaraguan drug trafficking and the outbreak of crack cocaine in America’s inner cities. 

The longer I cogitate on Michael Cuesta’s Kill The Messenger, the more I realise just how unobtrusively compelling this film truly is.

Inspired by the life of Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) and his ‘Dark Alliance’ exposé on the explosion of crack cocaine in the United States (which inevitably ruined his career), the film draws attention to the power and reach of fourth and fifth estate journalism and to the subjective objectivism of its gatekeepers.

Having said all that, if you take the time to reach beyond this »

First Trailer for Gren Wells' 'The Road Within' Starring Robert Sheehan

2 March 2015 11:36 AM, PST | | See recent news »

"What if we die?" "Well what if we live?!" There's only one way to find out! What a charmer. WellGo USA has released a trailer for Gren Wells' indie comedy The Road Within, about three friends who escape from a psych center and go on a three-day journey out into the wilderness. Robert Sheehan stars as Vincent, who has Tourette's, and he is joined by Zoë Kravitz and Dev Patel in the cast. The adults are played by Kyra Sedgwick and Robert Patrick, an odd duo that will probably end up together by the end. I haven't heard much about this, but it looks better than expected and I wouldn't mind checking it out. Give it a look. Here's the first official trailer for Gren Wells' The Road Within, embedded from Complex: After the passing of his mother, Vincent (Robert Sheehan), a young man with Tourette's, finds himself »

Arresting Development: Top Ten Sheriffs in the Movies

19 February 2015 10:04 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the vast history of cinema the profession of law enforcement has been portrayed heavily and made its mark on the big screen in both dramatic and comical fodder. Whether it be straight up cops and robbers or crooked officers on the take in gangster flicks or ant-hero gun-slinging loners trying to buck the system the presence of crime-busting cads never fail to add compelling, if not at times over-exaggerated, insight into the world of law-enforcing personalities.

The one element of the law-enforcing community that seems somewhat limited but still registers mightily in some cinematic arenas is the concept of the sheriff. Sheriffs do cast a prominent shadow in all sorts of fields in the movies: westerns, medieval times, contemporary country car-chasing farces and even some urban melodramas.

In Arresting Developments: Top Ten Sheriffs in the Movies we will take a look at some of the notable on-screen sheriffs in »

Sundance 2015: ‘Hellions’ is nothing but a pile of stale homages

3 February 2015 7:52 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Written by Pascal Trottier

Directed by Bruce McDonald

Canada, 2014

Back in 2008, director Bruce McDonald released the horror film Pontypool, which was inventive and claustrophic. Pontypool promised a great new voice in horror, but it’s a promise that McDonald hasn’t lived up to since. Still, it was hard not to walk into Hellions expecting great things. Sadly there is very little in this film to admire. Hellions follows teenager Dora Vogel (Chloe Rose), who must survive Halloween night when evil trick-or-treaters come for her.

The film starts out intriguingly enough with an ominous and uncut shot inside a hospital. From there the film keeps the momentum going with the revelation of teenage pregnancy, the specter of Halloween hanging over the film and creepy little evildoers bringing a dark goal to reality, but eventually it becomes evident that McDonald nor screenwriter Pascal Trottier have any clue where to take this film. »

Horror Round-Up: The Crow Reboot, The Greasy Strangler, Hellions

24 January 2015 6:21 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Welcome to another horror news round-up! This time around, we have an update on whether or not Luke Evans will play Eric Draven in The Crow reboot, details on the recently announced horror film, The Greasy Strangler, and a clip, poster, and images of Bruce McDonald’s Halloween-set Hellions, making its debut this Sunday night at the Sundance Film Festival.

When Corin Hardy (The Hallow) became attached as the director of the long-gestating reboot of The Crow (after F. Javier Gutiérrez left the director’s chair) back in December, discussions of who would play main character Eric Draven resurfaced, with Luke Evans’ future in the lead role somewhat of a question mark.

Evans (The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five ArmiesDracula Untold) was initially set to star in The Crow remake back in 2013, but in recent interviews he didn’t seem optimistic about his continued involvement with the »

Sundance Exclusive: Angels Get Armed In Poster For Bruce McDonald's Midnight Movie 'Hellions'

22 January 2015 2:16 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Much like like Steven Soderbergh or Richard Linklater, Canadian filmmaker Bruce McDonald doesn't easily fit into a single genre box. Often using his home country as a backdrop, the director has delivered movies as diverse as "Dance Me Outside," "Hard Core Logo," "The Tracey Fragments," and "This Movie Is Broken." But for his next move, McDonald is readying "Hellions," and he hopes it'll send a chill up your spine. Starring Chloe Rose, Robert Patrick, Rossif Sutherland, Rachel Wilson, Peter DaCunha, and Luke Bilyk, the horror/thriller takes place on Halloween night where more than just trick or treaters are up to trouble. Here's the official synopsis:  It is Halloween night in the town of Waterford, the so-called Pumpkin Capital of the World. Alone at home, teenager Dora Vogel is about to have a very long night. Free to roam undetected among the small town's trick-or-treaters, a group of masked demonic beings knock on. »

9 Sundance 2015 Films We Are Dying to See

22 January 2015 9:12 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The 2015 Sundance Film Festival kicks off Thursday and with it come some of the most groundbreaking, experimental, and challenging independent films from Hollywood and around the world.

From films about infamous psychological experiments to degenerate gamblers, and the post-apocalyptic worlds to ill-fated emotional journeys, these are the nine films from this year's Sundance Film Fest that we can't wait to watch.

1. The Stanford Prison Experiment

Sundance Film Festival

Starring: Billy Crudup, Ezra Miller, Kyle Patrick, Tye Sheridan. (Dir. Kyle Patrick Alvarez)

What It's About: The Stanford Prison Experiment tells the real life story of an infamous psychological study examining the effects of imprisonment. Two dozen student volunteers are randomly assigned to be guards or prisoners in this mock jail and, as the experiment unfolds, the students begin to disturbingly fall into their roles.

Why We Want To See It: The real experiment was a frightening yet fascinating examination of psychological conditioning and the man who ran the »

Where next for The X-Files?

21 January 2015 10:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Now that David Duchovny has said he'd be happy to return, what are the options for The X-Files long-mooted return to television?

Warning: contains spoilers for The X-Files and for the comic book continuation Season Ten.

The X-Files, much like several of its villains, is a show that refuses to die. A seminal, ground-breaking series in the 1990s, it became a slightly creaky series in the early 2000s, then a cancelled series, then a movie following on from the original series, and now it may become a series again. But where can the show go now? There are a number of options available…

Season Ten, starring David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson

Judging from comments made by Fox representatives Dana Walden and Gary Newman, this is the current plan – they want to bring back David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as Mulder and Scully and continue the series, presumably picking up after »

‘Lovelace’: When Reality Is Substituted For Bad “Artistic License”

15 January 2015 5:11 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman

Written by Andy Bellin

USA, 2013

In Billy Wilder’s excellent 1951 drama Ace in the Hole, which is a classic showcase of media manipulation, ambitious city-slicker reporter Chuck Tatum (played by an enthusiastic Kirk Douglas) finds himself stuck in Albuquerque, New Mexico with hopes to find that one big story that will jettison him to the big-leagues again. Tatum lucks out when he is informed about a man trapped in a cave-in and uses this opportunity to break big. When Tatum’s photographer asks why this will make a big story, Tatum responds that it’s a “human interest” subject and that if you can get readers to sympathize with the narrative then you have the reader’s attention. But, he also elaborates that a human interest story has to focus on one person; if you focus on others involved with the story, »

"Malcolm in the Middle" Turns 15 -- See the Stars Then & Now!

9 January 2015 1:15 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's hard to believe that one of our favorite sitcoms from the 2000's turns 15 today -- "Malcolm in the Middle." Yes, we feel old too ... life is unfair. The series followed "middle" child Malcolm, played by Frankie Muniz, a high school student with a genius Iq and embarrassing family of six (later seven).With a smarty pants, a military teen, a bully and the one and only Dewey running around the house, parents Lois (Jane Kaczmarek) and Hal (Bryan Cranston), definitely had their hands full! So, what have these stars been up to in the last 15 years?Muniz continued to act after the show’s cancelation in 2006, appearing in the Syfy film "Blast Vegas" and an episode of "Don't Trust the B In Apartment 23." He has two films slated for this year: "Hot Bath an’ a Stiff Drink 2" with Robert Patrick and "Road to Capri" with Virginia Madsen and Alfred Molina. »

14 Worst Movies of 2014

1 January 2015 8:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most Hollywood studios have gotten smart about their film budgets, lowering them quite a bit over the past year. Which means we saw fewer box office bombs in 2014. Almost all of the big releases made at least a little bit of their money back, except maybe Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. It only earned $18.6 million worldwide against it's $70 million budget. Winter's Tale and Vampire Academy were also big money losers over the past twelve months, but seeming disasters like Transcendence and I, Frankenstein actually managed to recoup their costs overseas. That doesn't mean these were good movies by any means. And some of the biggest blockbusters of the year shouldn't be considered masterpieces of cinema by any stretch of the imagination. In 2014, we couldn't really judge a movie by its earnings. But we could judge them by their critical and fan responses. Which is where Rotten Tomatoes comes in handy. »
