Berlin Film Review: ‘Midnight Special’

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Opening with a child abduction and ending with a spectacular sci-fi finale on par with “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” the Bible Belt-spanning “Midnight Special” demonstrates once and for all that indie auteur Jeff Nichols is now the go-to storyteller for the kind of slow-burn supernatural thrill audiences once sought from M. Night Shyamalan — that is, before the “Sixth Sense” director went off the deep end with “Lady in the Water.” Serving up hefty human insight in place of third-act gimmickry, and reuniting him with “Take Shelter” star Michael Shannon, Nichols’ impressively restrained yet limitlessly imaginative fourth feature takes its energy from an ensemble of characters who hold fast to their convictions, even though their beliefs remain shrouded in mystery for much of the journey.

The less audiences know going in, the better, though that could backfire on a movie without a big enough star to attract the crowds »

Concussion review: “A solid film with an excellent performance from Will Smith…”

18 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Concussion review: Delivers a welcome glimpse of Will Smith’s acting prowess. Worth a watch

Following a rather disappointing turn in the dire M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi movie After Earth, and the decent enough Focus, Will Smith goes ‘serious’ for his latest role as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian pathologist now living in Pittsburgh, who uncovers a rather worrying truth involving former American football players who develop brain damage years after their careers have ended.

Omalu uncovers the truth after performing a relatively straight-forward autopsy on former NFL player Mike Webster (David Morse). He finds a rather worrying neurological deterioration that is similar to Alzheimer’s disease, only it seems to be hitting a number of people from the same sports background, and at an alarmingly worrying early age. After confirming his findings, Omalu names the disorder chronic traumatic encephalopathy and publishes his findings in a medical journal.More athletes »

5 More Movies That Would Make Perfect Video Slots

10 February 2016 9:03 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Reading through the Euro Palace blog I’ve stumbled upon an article which talks about how some movies would make great video slot machines. No wonder they have chosen the slots as a topic – Euro Palace specializes in real money games, and slot machines are the games of choice at such venues. They’ve chosen The Bucket List, any James Bond movie, Mortal Kombat, Kick-Ass and Pulp Fiction for their list. Their reasons are plausible, and they are right – any of the above would make a great slot machine. But let me add five more to the list – hoping for developers to listen. So, here is my five cents, well, erm, movies.

1. Ocean’s Eleven

What better source of inspiration for a video slot machine than a story about a gang robbing three Las Vegas casinos simultaneously? The movie has the visuals and the selection of movie stars to make a perfect video slot, »

Eli Manning Finally Explains His Sad Super Bowl Face

9 February 2016 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is ready to explain his meme-inspiring Super Bowl moment. When his brother Peyton Manning's team, the Denver Broncos, scored a critical touchdown that helped them defeat the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, cameras captured Eli looking less than enthused about his older brother's soon-to-be victory. On Monday the Giants star answered the question on everyone's mind - why the heck did he look so unhappy watching his older bro on the field? "I was focused on whether they were going for two, and knew the defense had to step up and make some stops, »

Jason Patric Set To Star In The Second Season Of Wayward Pines

5 February 2016 2:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

New casting has been announced for the second year of 2015’s breakout hit Wayward Pines, with reports confirming that Jason Patric will lead the new season of the twisty show. The actor will be playing Dr. Theo Yedlin, “a confident, driven surgeon whose leadership skills will prove invaluable.” Yedlin will find himself awoken in the town of Wayward Pines in the chaos of a rebellion. Other than that, only a vague summer return date was given for season two.

Although not much is known about the mysterious second season of Wayward Pines, since most of the contracts for the first year’s cast have expired due to how long it’s taken to make a new season of the show, it appears that not many of the original surviving characters will make it back for round two.

Debuting last May, Wayward Pines told the story of a weird town in »

Ryan Reynolds' 'Deadpool' voice gets evaluated by one of the voice actors who played him

1 February 2016 4:56 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A number of different voice actors have taken on the role of Deadpool over the years, each bringing his own specific sensibility to the Marvel anti-hero. Among that group is John Kassir, most famous for voicing the Crypt Keeper on HBO's iconic Tales from the Crypt series, who brought the wise-cracking assassin to life in a total of three video games: X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse and both entries in the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance series. With the live-action Deadpool starring Ryan Reynolds hitting theaters on Feb. 12, I took a moment to ask the voice actor (speaking to me about the rumored non-involvement of the Crypt Keeper in M. Night Shyamalan's Tales from the Crypt reboot) how he would rate Reynolds' Deadpool voice. Turns out he likes it, which perhaps isn't surprising considering Reynolds' take is actually quite similar to his. "At first when I saw the commercial for it I was like, »

Toni Collette Joins XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage

29 January 2016 12:03 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Who knew we'd be getting so much Xander Cage so fast? After the disappointment that was XXX: State Of The Union back in 2005, the franchise went back into hiding for a good decade or so. When actor Vin Diesel returned to the Fast And Furious franchise, there were endless rumbles that he would eventually make his way back to the other action flick he was best known for.

After announcing the film back in January of 2014, news on the picture went radio silent, and now it seems like we get extra tidbits and casting news every other week. In the latest in the string of casting news, THR is reporting that Toni Collette has joined this growing cast, and that she will be playing a "bureaucrat in the intelligence service."

Collette may not be the most recognizable of actresses, but she definitely has had her fair share of roles. She »

‘The Visit’ DVD Review

18 January 2016 10:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, Kathryn Hahn, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Samuel Stricklen, Patch Darragh, Jorge Cordova, Steve Annan, Benjamin Kanes | Written and Directed by M. Night Shyamalan

Some would say that the scariest thing you can see in a movie is the name M. Night Shyamalan. It is fair to say that he has had some flops in his time (The Happening) but could The Visit be a return to form? Strangely enough, it may just be… When Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and Tyler (Ed Oxenbould) go to stay at their grandparents house it is fair to say that Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop (Peter McRobbie) are strange. Putting it down to old age, the two children try to ignore their eccentricities. As things get weirder though, the two children are about to find out just what the secret is of the grandparents’ house.
