Thanks for taking the time to chat with us, Drew. Before joining The Strain in the role of Matt Sayles, what was your familiarity with the work of Guillermo del Toro?

My pleasure! Pans Labyrinth put Guillermo on the map for me. That film, hands down, blew me away. His ability to create such mystical, dark worlds and his »

Second Opinion – The Art of the Steal (2014)

21 June 2014 12:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Art of the Steal, 2014

Directed by Jonathan Sobol.

Starring Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Jay Baruchel, Kenneth Welsh and Chris Diamantopoulos.

Synopsis:

Crunch Calhoun, a semi-reformed art thief, agrees to get his old gang back together to pull off one last heist.

Honour amongst thieves? Trust within a family? Not bloody likely. At least not if your name is Calhoun. Jonathan Sobol’s heist caper has lofty aspirations indeed, but ultimately this falls short of its peers. Big white typeface, natty nicknames and an upbeat jazzy score can work well, but we’ve seen the likes of Clooney, Pitt and Soderbergh do this better already. Confidence tricks only work for an audience when they can understand and appreciate the reveal. Here, it is not so obvious and woe betide the viewer that doesn’t give this effort their full attention. If you’re guilty of this, then you may not »

‘The Art of the Steal’ Review

19 June 2014 4:21 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Jay Baruchel, Chris Diamantopoulos, Katheryn Winnick, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones, Terence Stamp | Written and Directed by Jonathan Sobol

I love a good heist (or caper) movie, of course as do many others out there, just look at the success of the “Oceans” franchise and the recent Now You See Me but my love does not end at the mainstream, I really love discovering hidden gems of the genre – films like Flypaper, How to Rob a Bank and The Perfect Score – so when I saw The Art of the Steal pop up on Amazon.com I knew it was a film I had to check out. Even more so considering it stars the legend that is Kurt Russell alongside the always awesome Jay Baruchel. So, thinking this is the type of under-the-radar flick that I’d dig (and that wouldn’t see the light of day »

The Art of the Steal review: Kurt Russell's disappointing con caper

18 June 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jonathan Sobol; Screenwriter: Jonathan Sobol; Starring: Kurt Russell, Jay Baruchel, Katheryn Winnick, Matt Dillon, Terence Stamp; Running time: 90 mins; Certificate: 15

The stakes are always high in a con caper where the final revelation can either pay off handsomely, or leave everyone feeling cheated. In this case, Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon are short-changed by a script with a clever denouement that comes at the expense of the rest of the action, which is so self-consciously cool and vacuous, it's practically freeze-dried.

Russell provides the one heartfelt performance as Crunch Calhoun, the wheelman in a heist (badly) organised with half-brother Nicky (Matt Dillon), a too-slick grifter who lands Crunch in a Polish prison to save his own skin when the scam goes pear-shaped. Writer/director Jonathan Sobol cuts to chase straight away, showing off a flair for action while speedily looping around the gaps in logic. Occasionally he'll freeze the »

Movie Review – The Art of the Steal (2013)

17 June 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Art of the Steal, 2013.

Directed by Jonathan Sobol.

Starring Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Jay Baruchel, Kenneth Welsh and Chris Diamantopoulos.

Synopsis:

Released after seven years in a Polish prison having been double-crossed by his half-brother Nicky, stunt rider and art thief Crunch Calhoun is tempted back into the game for one final heist that could set him and his old crew up for life.

On the basis of the synopsis alone this is the type of film many people would run long and hard to avoid. Given the nation’s propensity for obesity and, we’re told, diabetes on an epic scale, Brits running at all seems so unlikely as to prove just how high the bar is for yet another movie of just-one-final-job capering.

Never read other reviews before writing your own, we’re told, and though I didn’t it wasn’t easy to avoid the general »

“Hannibal” Season 2′s Tastiest Moments

22 May 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Around this time last year I wrote a piece gushing about the operatic ghoulishness of NBC’s Hannibal. This Season carnage maestro Bryan Fuller and his merry band of dismemberists returned to outdo their own impressive bodycount and mess with our minds, expectations, and appetites. This week the season finale promises to explain the mind-boggling fight-to-the-death that opened the season, and presumably to send the story off in another unexpected direction for the eagerly anticipated – and recently announced – Season 3.

As we near the bloody finish, let’s look back at a few of the moments that we will never be able to get out of our heads, even with the assistance of a bonesaw.

(in roughly chron order)

1. Jack Attacks Hannibal

The season started with a bang, as Jack Crawford (Lawrence Fishburne) appeared at Hannibal’s (Mads Mikkelsen) house – not to sup on his delicious, homemade gourmet meals, but to fuck his shit up. »

Hannibal Ep 2.08 “Su-zakana” elevated with splashes of twisted humour and moments of bodily horror

20 April 2014 8:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hannibal Season 2, Episode 8 “Su-zakana”

Directed by Vincenzo Natali

Written by Scott Nimerfro

Airs Thursdays at 10pm Et on NBC

Hannibal’s “Su-zakana” is pretty much a palate cleanser; an episode representing a new start in the relationship between Dr. Lecter and Will Graham. Now halfway through season two, the series seems to be entering a new phase in which Will slowly lures Hannibal by using himself as live bait. Hannibal has never been subtle, and if you didn’t already guess based on the episode’s title alone (which refers to a palate-cleansing-Japanese-dish), this week is all about the concept of rebirth.

Vincent Natali (Splice) directs his first episode of Hannibal, and the results are stunning. The level of macabre imagery was amped up several fold this week with elaborately staged crime scenes that will have viewers sinking down in their seats. If the starling trapped inside a woman sewn »

New Stills Provide First Look at Katharine Isabelle in Hannibal Episode 2.08 - Su-zakana

15 April 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

We knew Katharine Isabelle would be joining "Hannibal" this season, and her first appearance comes on Friday in Episode 2.08, "Su-zakana." Check out this new batch of stills from the ep that gives us our first look at Isabelle as Margot Verger.

Margot is a patient of Dr. Lecter who has suffered years of abuse at the hands of her serial-killer twin brother, Mason Verger (played by Michael Pitt). As the season progresses, the unstable, wealthy Mason will engage in a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with the good doctor while Margot is a potential new love interest for Will.

"Hannibal" Episode 2.08 - "Su-zakana" (airs 4/18/14; 10-11Pm)

Jack Invites Will To Rejoin The FBI Team - When a young woman’s body is discovered inside of a horse, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) suggests to Jack (Laurence Fishburne) that Will (Hugh Dancy) be brought in to help crack this peculiar case.

It's Nothing Personal in this Promo for Hannibal Episode 2.08 - Su-zakana

12 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

The tables are turning as we head deeper into this season of "Hannibal," inching toward the ending we saw (or think we saw) at the beginning. In any event, here's a preview of the next step on our journey: Episode 2.08, "Su-zakana."

"Hannibal" Episode 2.08 - "Su-zakana" (airs 4/18/14; 10-11Pm)

Jack Invites Will To Rejoin The FBI Team - When a young woman’s body is discovered inside of a horse, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) suggests to Jack (Laurence Fishburne) that Will (Hugh Dancy) be brought in to help crack this peculiar case.

Will has seemingly cast aside his suspicions of Hannibal, resuming their doctor-patient relationship, but Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) remains skeptical regarding Will’s true intentions and worries that Hannibal may still be in danger.

The FBI questions the man they suspect to be the killer in their case, but lack of evidence forces them to let him go. Will and Hannibal »

Film Review: ‘The Art of the Steal’

18 March 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Real currency in the world ain’t money; it’s trust.” “There’s no such thing as one last job.” These and other canned bits of honor-among-thieves wisdom can be found in “The Art of the Steal,” a derivative heist thriller-comedy that passes painlessly enough at a brisk 90 minutes, but ultimately feels as disposable as the numerous counterfeit paintings that exchange hands throughout. Cast as estranged brothers trying to settle an old score by stealing (and forging copies of) priceless museum-based treasures, Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon collect their paychecks without breaking a sweat in this low-rent diversion, a lightly amusing riff on the many superior films of its type, including but not limited to the various iterations of “Ocean’s Eleven” and “The Italian Job.” The Canadian production is now in theatrical and VOD release through Radius-twc.

Art Bitch: Sobol Turns to the Dependable Heist Drama with Mixed Results

Flying in on the feathery laurels of Kurt Russell (once again donning a skilled leadfoot persona, albeit one who is much less sinister than his Stuntman Mike), director Jonathan Sobol turns to the sinewy double crossings of the old fashioned heist for his sophomore effort, The Art of the Steal. While it’s a stretch to say that Sobol, who also penned the screenplay, brings anything fresh to the table, he fills his 90 minutes with enough pep to keep us interested, which is nothing to balk at considering his plot twists aren’t divided by explosive action sequences. Several cast members lends the material a superficial draw, though the film doesn’t tend to champion or showcase any of them (and as for an engaging female presence, forget it—ladies are on short order here, with a lone »

Fox Renews Four Series and “True Detective” Crashes HBO

10 March 2014 4:34 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

In great news, Fox has renewed New Girl, The Mindy Project, The Following (okay, that one might not be great) and critical darling Brooklyn Nine Nine.

While that detailed of a demographic breakdown isn’t available, The Oc Weekly argues that Looking is the “perfect show for (straight) women“, praising the show for avoiding tropes like ticking biological clocks and generally tossing out relationship gender roles.

Speaking of Looking, last night’s finale prompts Buzzfeed to ponder the enduring affection gay men have for The Golden Girls. It turns out there’s a good number of diehard fans working on the HBO dramedy.

The Science Channel is making a series out of the popular webseries I F-ing Love Science. The TV series plans to mix live action segments, animation and recreations.
