DVD Review – Sabotage (2014)

16 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sabotage, 2014.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Harold Perrineau and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s post political return to film has been a bit of a mixed bag thus far. Aside from a couple of token appearances in the first two Expendables films, his films have all tanked (including his token appearance in The Expendables 3). That’s not to say his output hasn’t been without merits. Arnold’s first proper re-introduction came in the simple, yet highly enjoyable The Last Stand, a film which grows on me every time I see it, and deserved to be watched by more than the half dozen people who actually bothered to see it in cinemas. »

Z Nation: Season One Ratings

15 September 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The Walking Dead on AMC is insanely popular and was the highest-rated show on television last season in the 18-49 demographic. How will Syfy's Z Nation perform? Will it be a killer success in the ratings and be renewed for a second season or, will it be cancelled? Stay tuned.

A horror TV show, Z Nation begins three years after a zombie virus has gutted the United States. A ragtag band of everyday people must work together to transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California to the last functioning viral lab. The cast includes Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Kellita Smith, Michael Welch, Anastasia Baranova, Russell Hodgkinson, Pisay Pao, Nat Zang, and Keith Allan.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the »

Syfy's ‘Z Nation’ Racks Up 1.6 Million Viewers With Premiere

15 September 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The zombie apocalypse shows no signs of slowing down, at least on the small screen. The new Syfy series “Z Nation” premiered to robust numbers on Friday, drawing 1.6 million total viewers and making the series — which hails from “Sharknado” producers The Asylum — the channel's highest-rated acquired scripted series since the 2006 premiere of “Doctor Who.” See video: DJ Qualls and Harold Perrineau Are the Nation's Only Hope in ‘Z Nation’ Teaser In the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, the “Z Nation” premiere drew 695,000 viewers.

Blu-ray Review – Sabotage (2014)

15 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sabotage, 2014.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Harold Perrineau and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

Skip Woods is the luckiest man in Hollywood right now, if not the world. Since 2001 he has been paid to write scripts for a living yet has never once showed he has the talent to warrant any future employment. If I were as bad at my day job as he is at his, I would have been fired a long, long time ago. I can only assume he has photos of important Hollywood players doing things they wish no one knew about.

This is the man who, let us never forget, defecated on the Die Hard series before audiences’ very eyes »

Syfy’s ‘Z Nation’ Premiere Piracy Levels Skyrocket

14 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A little-known new zombie series from cable network Syfy came out of nowhere Friday to emerge as a big global piracy draw over the weekend, according to new data from piracy tracking firm Excipio.

The premiere episode of “Z Nation” was devoured by approximately 300,000 unique IP addresses in the first 24 hours since its U.S. TV debut. While that may be far from record-holders like HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” which saw over 1 million individuals illegally downloading its season 4 premiere, it’s also well in excess of other well-known series like Netflix hits “Orange is the New Black” or “House of Cards,” which attracted sub-six-figure sums.

Another humbling comparison: When a copy of “The Expendables 3″ leaked three weeks prior to its release, that attracted just 189,000–not even close to what “Z Nation” did. The torrent in question, marked ‘Z Nation S01E01 HDTV x264-killers[ettv]‘ was the most active »

‘Sabotage’ Blu-ray Review

14 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Arnold SchwarzeneggerSam Worthington, Joe Maganiello, Terrence HowardOlivia WilliamsHarold Perrineau | Written by David Ayer, Skip Woods | Directed by David Ayer

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s journey back to the big screen has been fraught with financial peril. While the Expendables films have done decent enough business, his other ventures since his return from government have proven to be fairly rocky. The Last Stand only scrapped past making back its production budget worldwide, and although his Stallone co-starrer Escape Plan managed to make over $100 million, his latest solo starring vehicle Sabotage has made less than $20 million across the globe which used to turn out in their droves, once for a film when the Austrian Oak got pregnant. Oh how times change…

In all honesty though, its easy to see why Sabotage would not bring in wide audiences. David Ayer, who has made his name on manly men being men films »

TV Review: ‘Z Nation’

10 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

No limit exists on zombie shows (although perhaps one should be imposed), but since “The Walking Dead” is out there — with a companion spinoff in the works — a new entry really ought to unearth something new. From that perspective, Syfy’s “Z Nation” has more guts than brains, essentially trotting out an old-fashioned wagon-train western, with a hardy band running a zombie gantlet trying to reach California. Along the way, the show serves up one doozy of a twist, and otherwise a lot of slavering, mindless flesh-eaters chasing our intrepid heroes. Think of it as the fast-food alternative to “Dead’s” more-flavorful dish.

Unwilling to waste even a minute on plot or story, the whole zombie apocalypse thing is tossed off in roughly 30 seconds. Chaos already reigns when a special-forces officer (Harold Perrineau) is assigned to transport precious cargo — a human host bearing a possible vaccine — to a facility in California, »

Z Nation Preview - Should You Tune In or Shamble On?

10 September 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If a step-by-step guide were written for how to create a standard zombie narrative, it would be titled "Z Nation." Start with one part outbreak footage, and mix in some overlapping audio clips of news regarding said outbreak.

Simmer it in a stock of basic characters with one part brown-haired stubbly leader, one part love interest, two parts mysterious drifters with unexplained combat prowess, and three parts uninteresting zombie chow to beef up the cast.

Marinade in a standard post-apocalyptic world, equal parts towns trying to make it and traveling caravans with dubious intent. Bake for 45 minutes in standard character dilemmas, adding in a mission to cure the virus for some longevity. Garnish with dialogue.

I try not to be too critical of things for being standard. I can’t expect everyone watching something to have the same breadth of exposure as I do, and in my experience there’s »

Emmett Scanlan joins Constantine as Jim Corrigan, a.k.a. The Spectre

5 September 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July Constantine executive producer Daniel Cerone expressed his ambitions to expand the supernatural side of the DC universe in the upcoming show by introducing the character of The Spectre, and now it has been revealed that Emmett Scanlan (The Fall, Guardians of the Galaxy) has nabbed the role of Jim Corrigan in the upcoming NBC show and will appear as a recurring guest star..

IGN describes Constantine’s version of the character as “a homicide detective in New Orleans who is plunged into Constantine’s world of occult horrors. Furthermore, Corrigan is someone who is obsessed with justice, and who doesn’t let police procedure or red tape stop him from putting away the bad guys, even if the bad guys turn out to be inhuman.”

Constantine is set to premiere on October 24th in the States, with a cast that includes Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior »

Go For Sisters | DVD Review

26 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

John Sayles’ latest film, Go For Sisters, receives an unceremonious DVD release from Freestyle Digital Media. While it snagged Yolonda Ross a supporting Actress at the Independent Spirit Awards after a muted theatrical release, it seems there will be less ado championing the home viewing release. Denied a Blu-ray option, Edward James Olmos still takes top billing even though the film belongs to actresses Ross and LisaGay Hamilton. Despite the continuation of this maligned marketing, with a little luck, Sayles’ best film in years will hopefully reach the broader audience it deserves.

An independent filmmaker who has been directing films without studio backing since 1979, infamously securing financing through penning genre screenplays (Piranha; Alligator). As such, one can often look forward to the offbeat flavor of his work, a true master of developing the unexpected in relationships between people, often crafted against delirious narratives that are sometimes labyrinthine in scope and »

Emily S. Whitten’s Grand San Diego Adventure – Constantine

The last time anyone really adapted the material of Hellblazer and main character John Constantine, occult detective, for the screen was 2005′s film Constantine, which got mixed reviews, although I personally thought it was pretty decent. After rumors of other adaptations to come throughout the years, on October 24 on NBC we will finally be seeing another screen vision of John Constantine come to life, and I can’t wait!

At Sdcc I got to talk to the new show’s executive producers and cast, and they had some fun and interesting things to share. Check it out!
