'Divergent' - high-concept film which connects (Ians Movie Review)

11 April 2014 2:07 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "Divergent"; Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoa Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn and Kate Winslet; Director: Neil Burger; Rating: ***1/2

From the director of evocative films like "Limitless" and "The Illusionist", "Divergent" is a high-concept film that's brilliantly executed and entertaining. However, it offers nothing exceptional in terms of its plot, which would set it apart from other films of the genre.

It's a typical story of a young girl in a dystopian state. The narration is layered with lessons of life with overall leitmotifs about self-realization, identity and defying traditionalism in favour of individuality.

With high-octane action, infused philosophy,. »

Divergent Review

3 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Neil Burger.

Starring: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Christian Madsen, Ansel Elgort, Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Tony Goldwyn, Miles Teller, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Ray Stevenson.

Running Time: 139 minutes.

Certificate: 12A.

Synopsis: Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) lives in a dystopian Chicago where society is divided into factions dependent on personality. When she turns sixteen, she must choose whether to stay within Abnegation for the rest of her life, or live with another faction she believes is right for her. But Beatrice is keeping a secret that puts her life – and that of her family – in serious danger.

It’s incredibly unfair to compare Divergent to the Ya (that’s ‘Young Adult’, to those not in the literary loop) adaptations that have come before it. But it’s almost impossible not to. Boasting a central love story, action scenes and a futuristic setting, it is considerably less saccharine than Twilight, »

Outpost: Rise Of The Spetsnaz Review

30 March 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A movie about Nazi zombies – why am I not more excited? The Outpost franchise started some years ago with a Ray Stevenson led action thriller about German WWII bastards looking for that war defining game-changer – but this isn’t Call of Duty. Outpost was fun, don’t get me wrong, but we’re now three films into a franchise that most horror fans didn’t even know existed, and that’s the disheartening vibe our most recent film embodies. Doing nothing to expand upon the idea of shambling undead German soldiers, Outpost: Rise Of The Spetsnaz re-introduces the idea of Nazi zombies and does absolutely nothing worth noting. More tired franchise ideas and generic genre play with a dash of gooey, gory distractions – did you expect anything else?

During battle, a group of Russian Spetsnaz soldiers are taken captive by German forces looking to test their new breed of soldier. »

Captain America and the superhero movies Hollywood has tried to bury

26 March 2014 6:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Superheroes might be big business in the movie world right now, but that hasn't always been the case. Despite the success of the early Christopher Reeve Superman films and Tim Burton's Batman outings, the genre was something of a poisoned chalice for filmmakers throughout the '80s and '90s. Buoyed by Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie, Hollywood mined the pages of DC and Marvel Comics in search of the next big thing. Unfortunately, small budgets and shaky scripts resulted in a string of flops ranging from Supergirl (1983) to Howard the Duck (1986). And yet, impossibly, things would get even worse for the comic book genre in the years that followed.

In 1989, the same year Tim Burton's Batman hit cinemas, Dolph Lundgren led The Punisher, a violent action-thriller based on Marvel character Frank Castle. A vigilante who takes revenge on criminals after his family is murdered in a mob killing, »

Movie Review - Divergent (2014)

21 March 2014 1:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Divergent, 2014.

Directed by Neil Burger.

Starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ashley Judd, Jai Courtney, Ray Stevenson, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Tony Goldwyn, Ansel Elgort, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer and Kate Winslet.

Synopsis:

In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.

Divergent has an uncomfortable, bizarre sense of swagger. As the leaders of Divergent’s world scream down upon it’s citizens to conform to societal norms, as do the producers, briefly dipping their toes into unchartered waters before panicking, fleeing into the paint-by-numbers Ya tosh so evident throughout recent film memory. Director Neil Burger flirts with complex ideas of genocide but the incessant need for turgid romance fails to ignite any sort of spark.

Based upon Veronica Roth’s incredibly popular series, »

Welcome to The Last Horror Blog, a biweekly column on all things horror. Someone way smarter than me said “war is hell” – and I don’t think they were wrong. Being placed into life-or-death situations where it’s often kill or be killed is certainly no walk in the park, but war literally becomes hell in some of horror cinema’s best takes on armed conflict. Forget the traditional haunted houses and abandoned summer camps and join me on the field of battle as we look at some of the best military-based horror films of all time in honor of this week’s DVD debut of Outpost: The Rise of Spetznaz.
