Tribeca: The Survivalist

21 April 2015 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

More from the Tribeca Film Festival! Here's Jason on an Irish future dystopia flick.

The Survivalist begins by throwing us - us being humanity - right off a cliff. We watch as a pair of lines - one signaling population growth, the other standing in for oil production - dance around each other like they're in a rough cut of that Chuck Jones cartoon. Up up up they go, until oil, you know, dribbles off, and then wham, it's the yodeler from The Price is Right for all of us.

It's a mercilessly efficient way to say everything big that needs to be said (what multi-million dollar Ya tent-poles take their sweet time drawing out) and to then drop us into the small ghostly after-world of the main story, where we mainly deal with the drama of one man, two women, and the well-fortified cabin and garden that comes to stand in for survival, »

First Reactions To Pixar’s Inside Out

6 April 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In late March, journalists in Toronto (including We Got This Covered) got the chance to see an exclusive sneak peek of one of 2015’s most anticipated films, Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out.

The animated comedy, opening in North America on June 19, tells the story of Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias), an adolescent girl moving to San Francisco and trying to adjust to a new life. However, much of the film is not seen through Riley’s eyes; rather, most of it takes place in her mind, as five central emotions guide the young girl. Amy Poehler leads the voice cast as Joy, the bubbly ringleader in the emotion-based headquarters. Joining Poehler is Lewis Black as Anger, Bill Hader as Fear, Mindy Kaling as Disgust and Phyllis Smith as Sadness.

Pete Docter, the film’s co-writer/director, and Inside Out producer Jonas Rivera were both present to introduce the film »

Wild Tales – The Review

19 March 2015 4:18 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Here’s a solution for the indecisive moviegoers. Not sure if you’re in the mood for a drama or comedy or a thriller? Well, how about an anthology? It’s like a good short story collection,  or you could call this type of flick a movie buffet or a cinema smorgasbord. Most of the time, these films, in their earlier incarnations, center around a setting (Grand Hotel), a gathering (Dinner At Eight), or an incident (the big cash winners in If I Had A Million). There are animation anthologies (the most famous may be Fantasia or Allegro Non Tropo) and musicals (Invitation To The Dance). The most prolific type may be those in the horror genre, beginning with 1945’s landmark Dead Of Night. In the 60’s and 70’s, Amicus Studios made their mark with Torture Garden and The House That Dripped Blood along with the EC Comics-inspired Tales From The Crypt »

'Friendship 9' Cleared of 1960s Civil-Rights Convictions

28 January 2015 10:45 AM, PST | | See recent news »

In a packed, standing-room-only South Carolina courtroom, seven black men in their 70s stood - or raised their hands - as their names were called and the dockets from their Feb. 1, 1961 convictions recited: "Offense, Trespassing; Disposition, guilty; Sentence, $100 or 30 days hard labor. Conditions, sent to chain gang." Fifty-four years after those men, most of them students at Rock Hill's Friendship College, served their 30 days for peacefully sitting down at a segregated lunch counter in Rock Hill, South Carolina, their convictions were overturned Wednesday morning to a standing ovation. South Carolina's 16th Circuit solicitor, Kevin Brackett, offered the still-living members of »
