Predestination | Review

Adjustment Bureau: The Spierig Bros. Resuscitate Heinlein’s Dime Store Sci-Fi

Though it gets off to an idle, clunky start, the Spierig Bros, an Australian directing duo, rifle through the catalogue of vintage science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein as inspiration for their third feature, Predestination. Premiering at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival, the title is unfortunately being dumped in the undesirable January period for its theatrical release, connoting that the film doesn’t have much to offer. Perhaps more ambitious than its means, it’s a film that manages to intrigue and engross with a narrative that virtually creates the odor of the musty, yellowed pages of the writing style it’s been borrowed from. While some may have a problem with the treatment of certain subject elements, dated precariously from a less enlightened period, the Spierigs, if nothing else, capture a certain nostalgic energy for this material, like an insect trapped in amber. »

App | DVD Review

5 January 2015 5:45 AM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Featuring an intriguing premise and execution, not all that dissimilar from William Castle's cinematic gimmicks, App attempts to integrate smartphone technology with the movie-watching experience, providing a downloadable smartphone app that utilizes sonic technology to display messages, trigger audio cues, and provide other additional content -- those without the app will never know any of that subsidiary information existed. The option itself seems to be a psychological experiment. Will people knowingly install an app on their smartphone, when that exact same app plays the sinister villain of the film that they are about to watch? Wouldn't this essentially be like Stanley Kubrick providing 2001: A Space Odyssey audiences with their very own copy of Hal? »
