Cruise Classic: Minority Report

24 July 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Regular readers of the site will know that earlier this year we ran a series looking at the classic films of Keanu Reeves. This was to co-inside with the release of the fantastic John Wick; now we turn our attention to another big name from the nineties, Tom Cruise. Each week from now until the release of the highly anticipated fifth Mission Impossible film, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at the films that we feel are his classics. This week’s pick is Minority Report.

Minority Report takes place in 2054 where all crime is predicted and controlled by the PreCrime task force. Trouble brews when one of their best agents, Anderton, finds his name on this list and gets hunted down before he can commit the pre-destined murder.

The film directed by Steven Spielberg is based on novel ‘The Minority Report’ by Philip K Dick. »

1. The series is all about humanising precogs.

"We've seen shows that have copied Minority Report since the movie which is all about stopping crime, stopping murders before they happen, and in the movie we follow the police department which has an infrastructure in place to do that, »

The Best Films of 2015 (So Far)

2 July 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With the year half over, our three critics have each selected their five favorite U.S. releases of 2015 so far.

Novelist and screenwriter Alex Garland’s brainy, precisely calibrated chamber drama was that rare piece of contemporary sci-fi filmmaking worthy of mention in the same breath as “Blade Runner” and “The Terminator.” Whatever this modestly scaled film lacked in budgetary heft, it more than made up for in sleekly expressive production design, provocative ideas about the fine line between man and machine, and knockout performances from Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander (as the Pinocchio-like android yearning to be a real, live girl). 

“Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter”

A young Japanese woman obsessed with the Coen brothers’ “Fargo” travels to the wilds of Minnesota in search of buried treasure in this comic gem from another sibling director team, ‎David and Nathan Zellner. With deadpan elan, the »
