‘Mortdecai’ is hauntingly terrible

25 January 2015 5:24 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mortdecai

Written by Eric Aronson

Directed by David Koepp

USA, 2015

Seemingly late in the game of David Koepp’s Mortdecai, the eponymous character (played by Johnny Depp) asks his wife, “Are you quite finished with your barrage of insults?” It’s an apt question for the film itself, a cataclysmically unfunny, unbelievably tedious disaster of baffling misjudgments and multiple career lows that feels as long as Shoah, and only a little less harrowing. No such luck, though, as the film goes on for another 25 minutes. It then ends on people about to throw up. Also apt.

Lord Charlie Mortdecai (Depp, in a career low as both actor and one of the film’s producers) is an eccentric English art dealer and “part time rogue”, and the sort of whimsical, foppish figure who refers to America as “the Colonies”. (This film is apparently set in the present day.) He’s in »

‘Banshee: The Complete Second Season’ Blu-ray Review

25 January 2015 2:40 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Antony StarrBen CrossIvana MilicevicUlrich ThomsenLili SimmonsGeno SegersHoon LeeMatthew Rauch | Created by David Schickler, Jonathan Tropper

Jumping into Banshee without seeing the first season is somewhat of a baptism of fire but it was something I found myself doing so I could do my Banshee: The Complete Second Season review.  Watching the recap that comes on the first disc though I was able to catch up with the main plot and have an idea of what’s happened so far and by the final episode I may just have found one of my new favourite shows (to add to an ever-growing list).

With Lucas (Antony Starr) having survived the confrontation with Rabbit (Ben Cross) all of Banshee have to deal with the fallout, especially Carrie (Ivana Milicevic) who finds her past revealed and jail time on the cards.  With Rabbit’s body »

Banshee, Ep. 3.03: “A Fixer of Sorts” is more than just a game-changer

24 January 2015 5:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Banshee, Season 3: Episode 3 – “A Fixer of Sorts”

Written by Justin Britt-Gibson

Directed by Magnus Martens

Airs Friday nights at 10 on Cinemax

“A Fixer of Sorts” is, to be clear, one of the best episodes of Banshee and a firm testament to the show’s deserved place among the best current TV has to offer as a medium of entertainment. There’s a laundry list of evidence to back that up here, and it’s all thoroughly convincing in my mind. Most people will surely point towards the surprisingly early fight scene between Burton and Nola, which…well, how would you put it? It’s certainly the best fight scene in any Banshee episode to date. It’s certainly the best fight scene in any episode of television to air this year. It’s maybe the best fight scene to air in an episode of television period (at the very least, »

Banshee, Ep. 3.02: Perceptions matter in “Snakes and Whatnot”

17 January 2015 12:40 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Banshee, Season 3: Episode 2 – “Snakes and Whatnot”

Written by Halley Gross

Directed by Loni Peristere

Airs Friday nights at 10 on Cinemax

If last week’s season three premiere suggested the importance of legacy in Banshee, “Snakes and Whatnot” is the companion piece that shows how one’s legacy can be controlled by perception. It’s said that history is written by the victors, and several characters here–Rebecca, Chayton and Nola chief among them–want to make sure that they’re both taken seriously and come out on top.

Nola’s naturally callous demeanor, while one of her most entertaining qualities from a viewer’s perspective, made it hard to gauge how much she cared about her brother Alex. She was there offering curt advice when he was slipping up, but her return to Banshee shows how deep sibling love goes and how it’s easy to be taken for granted. »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #71. Thomas Vinterberg’s The Commune

6 January 2015 8:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Commune

Director: Thomas Vinterberg // Writer: Tobias Lindholm, Thomas Vinterberg

After the payoff of the successful reception of 2012’s The Hunt, looks like we’re going to get a double dose of Dane Thomas Vinterberg this year. With his adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s Far From the Madding Crowd pushed back (here’s hoping he can enliven the material a bit more rousingly than Schlesinger’s famed version), Vinterberg has already begun production on different kind of period piece, the 1970s set The Commune. Co-written by fellow Dane Tobias Lindholm (who is also working on his own new feature we hope to see next year), who also worked with Vinterberg on Submarino and The Hunt, the exciting cast is headlined by notables Ulrich Thomsen (The Celebration), Trine Dyrholm, and Fares Fares. Based on some autobiographical elements from his own life, which inspired a play he also co-wrote, the film follows a young academic couple, »

Review: Too much is just right for 'Banshee' season 3

6 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As a drama, "Banshee" is preposterous. It is ludicrous. It regularly defies laws of both plausibility and physics, and there's usually at least one moment per episode where I have to pause the action because I can't stop laughing at how ridiculous it all is. And that is why I've come to love it. "Banshee" is a show that should have no business working at all, let alone returning for an incredibly strong third season Friday night at 10 on Cinemax(*). At first glance, the premise — ex-con assumes the identity of a small-town Pennsylvania sheriff — feels extremely limited, like something better-suited to a straight-to-Netflix movie than an ongoing cable drama, even on HBO's pulpier sister channel. The amount of mayhem visited on this small burg in the middle of Amish country, and the colorful nature of the people perpetrating said mayhem, makes the place often seem a closer approximation of Gotham »
