Horror and romance blossom in the haunting ‘Spring’

26 March 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Spring

Written by Justin Benson

Directed by Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead

USA, 2014

The less you know about Spring before its arrival, the more enthralling its subtle charms. This is a delicate little gem that reveals its mysteries grudgingly; a seamless blend of moods and genres that never stops surprising you. Darkly comic and unflinchingly romantic, Spring steeps its horror mythology in realism to create a genuine sense of uneasiness. Director Justin Benson’s exquisite story of painful transformation is one of 2015’s best films.

The first 30 minutes of the new horror film, Spring, function wonderfully as a straight drama. It methodically builds its characters from the ground up, showing a strident disregard for horror conventions. We meet Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci); a college dropout working dead-end jobs just to survive. Evan left college to care for his ailing mother, but that’s over now. He’s an orphan with “the same backstory as Batman, »

'Breaking Bad' Creator Begs Fans to Stop Throwing Pizzas on Walter White's Roof

12 March 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad, has a message for the fans of his beloved crime drama: Stop throwing pizzas on Walter White's roof!

According to Gilligan, some rowdier Breaking Bad fans have taken to throwing whole pizzas onto the roof of the Albuquerque house that was used for exterior shots on the AMC series.

Gilligan addressed the harassment the home's owners have faced on his Better Call Saul Insider Podcast on Tuesday.

Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Five-o': Drunk man's bluff

9 March 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as you put a cone around my neck... "I broke my boy!" -Mike Towards the end of last week's episode, Mike tagged in for Jimmy as the show's central character of the moment, and "Five-o" powerfully reflects that shift. With Mike as the focus, and Jimmy popping up only briefly to help Mike pull the spilled coffee play, the lightness and whimsy of the earlier episodes are replaced by a dark intensity, illustrating both the difference between Mike and Jimmy as individuals and their circumstances at the moment. Both are in Albuquerque because they let down family members in the past, but on wildly different levels. Jimmy never did anything to his brother that can't be undone, even if "Alpine Shepherd Boy" suggested that Chuck's episodes can be triggered by Jimmy's shenanigans. Jimmy's getting a fresh start, and »

Aaron Paul hoping for Jesse Pinkman cameo in Better Call Saul

7 March 2015 4:03 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Variety, Aaron Paul was asked for his thoughts on Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, and whether he had any interest in reprising the role of Jesse Pinkman for a cameo appearance.

I love it. It’s a little weird because it kind of looks like Breaking Bad. It has somewhat of a little bit different tone, but I know everyone involved, and I’m not involved in it at all and it’s a little weird, a little sad, but it’s great. We always have fun having that discussion [about a cameo] — Vince Gilligan, myself, Peter Gould, the writers. We just have no idea how that would happen. But hopefully one day.”

Paul has previously revealed that both Jesse and Bryan Cranston’s Walt won’t make an appearance in the first season of Better Call Saul, but AMC has already ordered a second season, »

'Better Call Saul': When Will Aaron Paul Return as Jesse?

5 March 2015 12:20 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

AMC's hit Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul passed the halfway mark of Season 1 with this week's episode "Alpine Shepherd Boy", and there have already been a few Breaking Bad characters who have popped up. Of course, Jonathan Banks plays Mike Ehrmantraut in the series, which is set six years before the events of Breaking Bad, and the pilot episode gave fans the surprise return of Tuco (Raymond Cruz). Unfortunately, Peter Gould, who co-created the show with Vince Gilligan, said in January that Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul will not reprise their roles as Walt and Jesse in Season 1. However, Aaron Paul revealed to Variety that he has been talking about returning as Jesse for the spinoff, but they aren't sure how or when it will happen yet.

"We always have fun having that discussion - Vince [Gilligan], myself, Peter [Gould], the writers. We just have no idea how that would happen. »

Tron: Legacy Director Joseph Kosinski In Talks For Gran Turismo Video Game Movie

4 March 2015 1:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Joseph Kosinski has, to date, only directed two films: the shiny, bright Tron Legacy and the altogether more grimy Oblivion. The leap in quality from the first to the second was so substantial, however, his third seems like a movie worth waiting for.

But what that third movie will be has proven hard to pin down, with projects coming and going and never quite getting rolling. Now, though, he’s making a deal to direct Sony’s long-gestating movie version of the Gran Turismo video game.

Being a driving simulator, Gran Turismo has only the sketchiest of plots, and one that’s 98% cars going fast, 2% cars slowing down for corners. For a good while the plan was to make this movie about a video gamer who becomes an ace driver, but that was when Alex Tse was writing and things could be entirely different now Kosinski is coming on board »

Dean Norris Talks Hank in 'Better Call Saul' | Exclusive

3 March 2015 9:26 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Better Call Saul hit the small screen to become a breakout hit, with some claiming it better than its predecessor Breaking Bad, it was unclear how many actors and characters from the original series would actually be appearing. We knew fairly early on that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul would not be reprising their iconic roles as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman in Season 1. Now, we have confirmation that Dean Norris, who played beloved DEA Agent and Walter's brother-in-law Hank Schrader, won't be back either, at least not in the remaining 5 episodes still to air on AMC.

We recently caught up with Dean Norris to chat about his role as Ben Franklin in the History miniseries Sons of Liberty. While talking about Better Call Saul, it seems he's changed his tune from over a year ago, appearing somewhat more positive that Hank may appear sometime down the road. In »
