Jane the Virgin, Ep. 2.02 to 2.06 deftly balances plot and characterisation

18 November 2014 7:59 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Gina Rodriguez, Andrea Navedo, Ivonne Coll

Jane the Virgin, Season 2, Episodes 2 to 6

Airs Mondays at 9 pm Et on The CW

Among the new offerings in the fall 2014 season has been the CW series Jane the Virgin, a show revolving around the titular Jane, a woman who finds herself accidentally artificially inseminated. While the premise provided a hurdle for the show, the pilot managed to effectively explain it, while also unabashedly showing off the series’ telenovela influences. As the season has continued, the show has continued maintaining the balance between emotional resonance and fun fantasy sequences. In addition, the series has shown a knack for being able to resolve storylines, rather than dragging them out, while still managing to give time to character development, all of which has resulted in a strong, confident series to date.

The focus on women, and the relationships they have with each other, has been a »

‘Brick Mansions’ Blu-ray Review

6 September 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Paul Walker, David Belle, RZA, Gouchy Boy, Catalina Denis, Ayisha Issa, Carlo Rota, Andreas Apergis, Richard Zeman, Robert Maillet, Bruce Ramsay | Written by Luc Besson, Bibi Naceri | Directed by Camille Delamarre

Hollywood remaking a foreign film is far from a new phenomenon, and adaption in this manner has yielded some truly great films. We have seen such successes like Seven Samurai  transformed into The Magnificent Seven, and Infernal Affairs  altered into The Departed.

On the other hand, there are movies like Brick Mansions. This remake of the Luc Besson / Pierre Morel French parkour action fest District B13  has much in common with the original including plot structure, action sequences, and even shares one of the co-leads. What it lacks is energy, craftsmanship, and originality.  Fans of the original have little reason to examine this new take, and those coming in fresh will also find it difficult enjoy this tired dud of an action movie. »

Telefilm Canada Supports New Feature Films

20 June 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Telefilm Canada has confirmed its financial support of nearly $13 million of Canadian tax payers' money towards the production of nine English-language feature films through the 'Canada Feature Film Fund', although there doesn't seem to be anything culturally 'Canadian' about most of their selections, other than the crews that will be working on them.

Among the films receiving money include a psycho horror with a demonic 'Santa Claus', a bio pic about a former Queen of Sweden, the 'relationship' between 'James Dean' and a photographer, a thriller involving a Satanic child abuse sex ring, and an inflatable Sex Doll drug smuggling story:

The films are "After the Ball" (Sean Garrity), "A Christmas Horror Story" (Steven Hoban, Grant Harvey, Brett Sullivan), "Aloft" (Claudia Llosa), "A Worthy Companion" (Jason Sanchez, Carlos Sanchez), "Life" (Anton Corbijn), "Regression" (Alejandro Amenabar), "Rest Home" (Michael Rowe), "The Girl King" (Mika Kaurismäki) and "Zoom" (Pedro Morelli »

Brick Mansions Review

1 May 2014 3:59 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Camille Delamarre.

Starring: Paul Walker, RZA, David Belle, Gouchy Boy, Catalina Denis, Ayisha Issa, Carlo Rota, Robert Maillet.

Certificate: 15.

Running Time: 90 minutes.

Synopsis: An undercover Detroit cop navigates a dangerous neighbourhood that’s surrounded by a containment wall with the help of an ex-con in order to bring down a crime lord and his plot to devastate the entire city.

Luc Besson seems like an incredibly busy man, churning out a couple of scripts or stories per year on top of his directing duties. It seems like the reason for this massive activity could be that he just stops after the first draft and thinks to himself, ‘that’ll do’. At least that’s the evidence on hand in the mess that is Brick Mansions.

The film is a remake of District 13 (also conceived by Besson) and the plot is largely the same, transported from the ghettos of »

13 February 2014 2:15 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Heading into Us cinemas this spring, action-thriller Brick Mansions marks the final full performance from the late Paul Walker.

Inevitably, with the former film marking his final full role and the latter his incomplete final role, both Brick Mansions and Fast & Furious 7 will be inextricably bound with the actor’s tragic and untimely death last year.

Ever one to take up a challenge, Walker leads the American adaptation of Pierre Morel’s acclaimed French-actioner, District 13. And with the film soon heading into cinemas, the first domestic and international trailers have debuted online, along with the recent first poster.

In a dystopian Detroit, abandoned brick mansions left from better times now house only the most dangerous criminals. Unable to control the crime, the police constructed a colossal containment wall around this area to protect the rest of the city.

First Poster, Images & Release Date For Paul Walker-Led Actioner ‘Brick Mansions’

8 February 2014 11:36 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The shocking and sad death of likeable actor Paul Walker late last year was always going to put a spotlight on his films still to be released. While he gave a great sympathetic performance in indie drama Hours (released in the Us last December), his final completed film was always going to catch the eye a little more as a big-budget remake of Pierre Morel’s terrific 2004 French actioner District 13 (aka Banlieue 13).

The film has been retitled Brick Mansions, with the original free running superstar David Belle taking the same role as an ex-con forced to team with Walker’s undercover cop (previously played by Cyril Raffaelli) in an effort to take down a ruthless crime lord with access to a neutron bomb.

We’ve the first images and poster from the film directed by Luc Besson’s frequent collaborator/protege Camille Dalamarre and written by Besson, Bibi Naceri and Robert Mark Kamen. »
