A Not-So Brief History of Ghostbusters III

15 July 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

How an Indecisive Cast Led to 20+ Years of Development Hell

Earlier this week, I wrote an open letter to those Ghostbusters fans staunchly opposed to the new film. My goal in doing so was to try and take a toxic conversation and find some middle ground between the two sides. While there are certainly people who truly hate the concept of an all-female Ghostbusters remake for purely sexist reasons, my gut tells me that there are also people who have suffered through decades of Ghostbusters production rumors only to find that their long-awaited sequel was never going to happen.

And partially in good faith — and partially out of curiosity — I figured now might be a good time to remind younger readers of just how messy the whole Ghostbusters III debacle truly got. What follows is not the full transcript of all media references to Ghostbusters III, but an abridged version of they key players and key quotes »

The Saint Remake Is Happening at Paramount Pictures

17 June 2016 6:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Paramount is currently in production on the next installment of its Transformers franchise with Transformers: The Last Knight, the studio is planning on launching a much different franchise. The studio has acquired the rights to Leslie Charteris' long-running book series The Saint for a new movie reboot. The studio previously distributed the 1997 version of The Saint, which starred Val Kilmer and Elizabeth Shue.

Leslie Charteris original book series, which ran from 1928 to 1963, followed Simon Templar, a thief who would pull off elaborate heists, stealing from corrupt politicians, drug dealers and other criminals and spread their wealth among the less fortunate. The books were adapted into a 1960s British TV series which starred Roger Moore as Simon Templar. There was also a recent attempt to revitalize the property as an American TV series, which will now be released as a TV movie later this year, starring Adam Rayner (Tyrant) as Simon Templar, »

Banshee Season 4 Episode 8 Review – ‘Requiem’

23 May 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kris Wall reviews the series finale of Banshee

I have to hand it to Banshee’s creators, after a shaky and uneven final season, they knew exactly what needed to happen to course correct and send the show out on a high in its final hour, the ‘good’ guys won and the bad guys lost. Requiem perfectly encapsulated everything that I love and adore about Banshee, packing the finale with bruising action, emotional depth and heart, great character moments, and an 11th hour reveal that, while more or less  completely voiding one plot thread that was already weak, worked to strengthen the season as a whole. Banshee looked like it was going big for its climax, but the creators actually delivered something on a more intimate scale that played to its strengths, the episode itself split into two halves with the first delivering the action and the second all about »

‘Banshee,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ and the Problems With Serial-Killer Plots

20 May 2016 9:41 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

I very much wanted to write a glowing tribute to “Banshee” today, the day of its series finale. And yet despite having loved its first three seasons, I can’t do that, in part because the Cinemax drama got tripped up by a device that also marred at least a couple otherwise interesting shows this season.

Banshee” could have spent the majority of its final season showcasing its wonderful cast, it could have told more enjoyably pulpy stories with rural-noir flair, and it could have left fans slack-jawed with glee after giving them a swan song full of fantastic action scenes and creatively staged fistfights.

Instead, it gave us a serial killer. An incredibly boring serial killer who led a Satanist cult. Believe it or not, that whole storyline was dumber than it sounds. 

The character and his preposterous coven felt as though they’d been borrowed from the most predictable procedurals on TV. »

Banshee season 4 episode 4 review: Innocent Might Be A Bit Of A Stretch

Has Banshee wasted a potentially great hand with an unsatisfying murderer reveal? Here's our review of the latest episode...

This review contains spoilers.

4.4 Innocent Might Be A Bit Of A Stretch

Banshee’s heightened reality is probably one of the best things about it. Its sheer audacity was what made me fall for it in the first place, and last year it reached dizzying heights by managing to perfectly balance that insanity with real depth and heart. To be clear, the show has been doing that since the very start, but it has gotten better and better at that balance as it has gone along, and last season it deservedly reaped all kinds of plaudits for what it managed to achieve. That’s partly why the change of pace this year has been such a surprise, as the show slowed down and got darker and more introspective. »

Banshee Season 4 Episode 4 Review – ‘Innocent Might Be A Bit Of A Stretch’

24 April 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kris Wall reviews the fourth episode of Banshee season 4…

We’re at the halfway point of Banshee’s final run now, and I’ll be honest I’m getting a little worried. While I have nothing but faith in this creative team, the pace of these final episodes has been so relentless that nothing is being given time to settle in or breathe, big things are being set up one week and quickly resolved the next, which is probably an effect of only having eight episodes this season rather than the previous ten. This weeks episode was packed to the rafters, chiefly introducing a third set of villains along with the arrival of a new major character in Eliza Dushku’s special agent Dawson. It was still a very good episode that was unmistakably Banshee, but there was a hell of a lot being set up here, with some of »

Banshee season 4 episode 2 review: The Burden Of Beauty

Banshee is nothing if not bold and innovative, as its transformation into a puzzle-box mystery series in its final run shows...

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 The Burden Of Beauty

If I were to name the two things that make Banshee special, they would be confidence and innovation. Even in its earliest moments, Banshee went for the jugular with audacious action, ludicrous plot twists, huge cliffhangers and a sense of excess that bordered on sleazy. At the start, it didn’t all work, but by the time of season three, Banshee had figured itself out. Overconfidence may have occasionally tripped it up in its early days, but it was worth it for the dizzying heights of innovation it would lead to. i.e. last year’s entire run.

Halfway through this week’s episode it occurred to me what I think Banshee is trying to do in its final season. »

Banshee Season 4 Episode 1 Review – ‘Something Out of the Bible’

Kris Wall reviews the first episode of Banshee season 4…

Warning : Full spoilers to follow.

I love Banshee, I just had to get that out there immediately !

As Banshee begins its fourth and final season, lets recap the events of season three that have lead up to now. The season opened with Lucas Hood leading deputies Brock and Siobhan on a quest of violent revenge to avenge the murder of Deputy Yawners  by white supremacists at the climax of season two, an act that Frank Castle would have applauded, but immediately put him even more at odds with a concerned Brock than he ever was before. Meanwhile Carrie’s criminal past came to light and completely exiled her from her husband, Gordon, and her children, Deva and Max. The hulking warchief, Chayton Littlestone, and the Redbones returned, laying waste to the Banshee P.D in retaliation for the death of his brother, »

Review: The final season of 'Banshee' is excellent, except for this one thing

31 March 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Through its first three seasons, Cinemax's Banshee was one of the most violent, gory dramas on television. The show doesn't just revel in excess; it would barely have a reason to exist without it. At its core, the series is a familiar, seemingly unsustainable, pulp thriller about a criminal (Antony Starr as Lucas Hood) posing as a cop in a rural Pennsylvania town. But because the show's creative team, led by Jonathan Tropper, insists on overdoing nearly everything — more blood, more broken bones, more odd character traits, and just more, period — Banshee has been one of this era's most surprisingly reliable entertainments. Week after week, and even scene after scene, the show takes tired old cliches (say, the smug and invulnerable local crime boss Kai Procter, played by Ulrich Thomsen) and piles layer after layer of detail onto them (Procter is not only a shunned former member of the local Amish community, »

Jane Wants A Boyfriend – Review

24 March 2016 6:47 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Just from glancing at this film’s title you might think that you’re in for another frothy “rom-com”, or perhaps a peppy teen comedy that ends with a “make-over’ montage prior to a jubilant dance number at the senior prom. Well, you’d be mistaken, maybe pleasantly mistaken. Though one name is mentioned in its title, this sweet little “indie” flick really concerns that lady and her older sister, Bianca, who’s found her fella’. She’s the one playing “cupid”, a challenge since her sis’ must deal with many, many challenges. This tale is a search for romance, but also a love story of these young women, a relationship that is tested when Jane Wants A Boyfriend.

As the film begins, Bianca (Eliza Dushku) is in the last days of rehearsal as the fairy queen Titania in a big new stage production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night »
