Movie Review – Colossal (2016)

22 May 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Colossal, 2016.

Directed by Nacho Vigalondo.

Starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Tim Blake Nelson, and Austin Stowell.

Synopsis:

Gloria is an out-of-work party girl forced to leave her life in New York City, and move back home. When reports surface that a giant creature is destroying Seoul, she gradually comes to the realization that she is somehow connected to this phenomenon.

From watching the initial trailer for Colossal I walked into this movie firmly expecting an offbeat indie comedy about a woman who somehow is/controls a giant monster that’s attacking Seoul. Instead it is a strange black comedy with extremely dark themes of alcoholism, self-loathing and domestic abuse. In places it’s laugh out loud and in others legitimately unnerving and disturbing.

Anne Hathaway (superbly cast and one of her best performances) plays Gloria an out of control party girl who drinks way too much and is in a downward spiral. »

Second Opinion – Colossal (2016)

18 May 2017 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Colossal, 2016.

Directed by Nacho Vigalondo.

Starring Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Austin Stowell and Tim Blake Nelson.

Synopsis:

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) has a hit a crisis.  She’s out of work and boyfriend Tim (Dan Stevens) has had enough of her party lifestyle and kicked her out of his flat.  She returns to her family home, falls in with old school friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis) and then sees reports on TV about a monster attacking Seoul.  And something tells her that somehow she’s connected to this phenomenon.

There’s actually a lot to like about Colossal.  What turns out to be a mixture of science fiction, horror and comedy takes a while to get off the ground, with Anne Hathaway’s Gloria refusing to tone down her drink-fuelled lifestyle and being thrown out of her partner’s apartment as a result.  She takes the conventional route – going back to her childhood home – but, »

Movie Review – Colossal (2016)

16 May 2017 2:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Colossal, 2016.

Directed by Nacho Vigalondo.

Starring: Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Austin Stowell, and Tim Blake Nelson.

Synopsis:

A young woman discovers that when she walks through a certain park in her hometown a monster appears in downtown Seoul mimicking her every movement.

When a high-concept comedy delivers on its premise, it can be a truly wonderful thing. Successful examples that spring to mind include Groundhog Day, Bruce Almighty, Stranger Than Fiction, and I would even argue Snakes on a Plane! Colossal has an undeniably original premise (it’s essentially Godzilla meets Being John Malkovich), but despite the best efforts of the cast it’s a sadly unfocused and unsatisfying effort.

Having been unemployed for a year, Anne Hathaway’s character Gloria has been getting drunk more and more often as a way of coping. One day her boozy antics and increasing unreliability become too much for her very »

Tim Blake Nelson headlining The True Don Quixote

11 May 2017 9:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that production has got underway on The True Don Quixote, a modern-day version of Miguel de Carvantes classic novel, with Chris Poche (Over the Hedge) directing a cast that includes Tim Blake Nelson (Fantastic Four) as Don Quixote and Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man: Homecoming) as Sancho Panza.

According to the site, the story “is centered on a man who’s safe and comfortable and bored to death with his life. In his state of despair, the stories of passion and pain change his mind until he awakens insane, anointing himself as Don Quixote to find adventure, fame and glory that will make his life worthwhile — while never leaving his one-mile square neighborhood.”

“[Don Quixote] is this hilarious, intimate little buddy comedy about a guy who essentially just goes out and attacks his neighborhood because he goes insane from boredom and propaganda, which feels very timely,” said Poche. “And who better »

16 Good Movie Pick-Me-Ups on Netflix Right Now

26 April 2017 8:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why so glum, chum? Movies are fun and they need watching.

In the immortal words of Shane Black via Geena Davis in The Long Kiss Goodnight, “Life is pain. Get used to it.” These days life has been really painful though, and it’s not so easy to get used to it. Thankfully movies are always here to pick us up when we need it, or bring us down if we’re looking to wallow. This month we’ve made a list of movies that will leave you smiling and feeling good about humanity after you watch them — at least for a little while. Click on their titles to be taken to their Netflix pages.

Pick of the Month: Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

What is James Franco Reading?

13 April 2017 4:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A extensive look at all those movies James Franco directed.

James Franco has done a lot of things, we’ve heard. Following a successful turn on Judd Apatow’s Freaks and Geeks and a well-received starring spot on a TNT biopic on James Dean, he turned immediately to a litany of pursuits: from playwriting and English degrees to painting and directing no less than ten feature-lengths. The latter project interested me. Were they any good? In Franco’s Rolling Stone profile last year, Jonah Weiner ran around a thesaurus of words like “dizzying,” “indefatigable“ and, wait for it, “multihyphenate” to describe his subject but none of those words mean very much. Paul Klee painted over a thousand paintings in the penultimate last year of his life. So could I. So what?

“What did we do to deserve James Franco?,” asked Rex Reed in a slightly different era. Back then, even the The Guardian agreed with Jared Kushner »

“Colossal” melds Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis with giant monsters

6 April 2017 3:38 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

While the big budget Hollywood features struggle to come up with creative original ideas, independent cinema is more than picking up the slack. With the release this week of Colossal, something very unique is hitting screens. It mixes indie sensibilities with some elements of gigantic blockbusters. Weird, right? Well, that doesn’t even begin to describe this one, which has a second half that’s downright bonkers, including a third act you’ll never see coming. There are flaws, including a running time padded by at least 15 minutes, but they don’t shield you from the ambition on display. I can guarantee that you won’t see anything else like Colossal this year, that is for sure. This flick is one with a premise that doesn’t do it justice. Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is an alcoholic party girl just sort of going through a lot. Her drinking has led her »

Colossal: Nacho Vigalondo On His Monster Movie Starring Anne Hathaway

5 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

In the past few years, Spain has been producing some of the most innovative horror films, as seen by the likes of J.A Bayonna, but also by Nacho Vigalondo, whose low-budget genre films Timecrimes and Extraterrestrial have been frequently cited as the best horror films of the past decade.

Vigalondo’s latest film is called Colossal, and as you might suspect, it’s his take on the giant monster (or Kaiju) movie, only this one takes an interesting twist because the giant monster terrorizing Seoul, South Korea seems to be controlled by a troubled party girl named Gloria, played by Anne Hathaway. After being booted from their NYC apartment by her boyfriend, Gloria goes back to her small town to live in her parents’ house where she re-encounters her childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis). Accepting a job in Oscar’s bar, Gloria starts hanging out with Oscar and his drinking buddies (Tim Blake Nelson, »

Check Out This Disappointing Monster-Free Clip From Colossal

24 March 2017 2:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nacho Vigalondo’s much hyped Colossal is soon to hit theatres after a rapturously received run at film festivals (check out our Tiff review here). It sounds worth watching if only for its absolutely bonkers premise: a heartbroken woman (Anne Hathaway) returns to her hometown after being dumped, only to discover that when she walks on a playground at a certain time of the day a giant monster appears in Seoul that matches her movements, smashes up the city and kills hundreds.

It sounds delightfully wild, and I’ll be first in line for a ticket. Even so, it’s a little baffling that the marketing team have chosen to release this particular clip to crank up anticipation, as it consists of 49 monster-less seconds of Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis sitting on a bench talking about their feelings. Now, I can totally understand that a movie might not want to »
