Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams – The Impossible Planet Review

Villordsutch reviews Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams: The Impossible Planet…

Episode two of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is titled The Impossible Planet. Originally published back in 1953 within the American Science Fiction and Fantasy magazine Imagination, this latest iteration is delivered by David Farr (The Night Manager, Hanna, McMafia) who is handling both writing and directing duties.

Set far in the distant future, we find two disenchanted Interstellar Tour Guides, Brian Norton (Jack Reynor) and Ed Andrews (Benedict Wong), trapped on a backwater planet called Primo76, entertaining droves of tourists with visually enhanced excursions throughout the galaxy. Then opportunity knocks in the form of a deaf, elderly woman called Irma Gordon (Geraldine Chaplin) and her robot RB29 (Malik Ibheis), who wishes to see Earth one last time and will pay cash to do so.

Seeing this as an unmissable chance Andrews convinces Norton that he can scam Mrs.

Irma (Geraldine Chaplin), aged 342, wants to visit Earth, is willing to pay a small fortune, and hires two cruise-ship operators to take her there. Only problem: Earth was destroyed years ago. But that’s not going to stop unscrupulous Andrews (Benedict Wong) and conflicted Norton (Jack Reynor) from taking her “there”.

Rooney Mara Experiences Romance and Hardship in U.S. Trailer for ‘The Secret Scripture’

Rooney Mara may not have any new premieres this year, but a pair of films from last year’s Tiff will finally be hitting U.S. theaters. Just a week after Una arrives, The Secret Scripture, directed by Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father), will get a release. The story follows Vanessa Redgrave as an older version of Mara’s character, reflecting on her traumatic life in Ireland through writing a diary alongside a cast including Jack Reynor, Theo James, Aidan Turner, and Eric Bana.

We said in our review, “The result falls flat and all too conventional for the talent involved. The problem lies more in Sheridan’s direction than in Mara’s acting, which is to say that she does deliver another good performance here, but everything else does her talent a major disservice. Redgrave is also a stand-out, but the film feels

Second Trailer for 'The Secret Scripture' Drama Starring Rooney Mara

"Make up your mind, but leave me out of it!" Vertical Entertainment has debuted a brand new official Us trailer for the upcoming release of the romance film The Secret Scripture, the latest from filmmaker Jim Sheridan. Rooney Mara and Vanessa Redgrave play the same woman, named Roseanne McNulty, who grew up in the midst of the religious and political upheavals in Ireland during the 1920s and '30s. The story starts with Redgrave in a mental institution, where she has kept a diary of "secret scriptures" from her life. It flashes back to tell her story growing up, which is when Mara takes over. The cast also features Jack Reynor, Aidan Turner, Theo James, Eric Bana, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Omar Sharif Jr. This doesn't look any better than it did last year when the first international trailer arrived, and it's never a good sign when the film is delayed

Detroit movie review: racism 101 for white people

MaryAnn’s quick take… Tense, gripping, enraging, but only about things that black Americans already know. This is a primer about racism for white people, and we must pay attention. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Detroit is a movie about racism in America for white people. It mostly does not center black characters except as victims. Its villain — a murderously racist white cop — is also its protagonist. A movie about racism in America for white people isn’t the most terrible idea ever: Detroit wants to show us white people how the systematic weight of endless injustice weighs on black people, psychologically as well as physically, because of entrenched racism, not only of the actively vicious kind but also of the “I’m not getting involved, I’m just minding my own business” kind.

‘Detroit’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray, Kaitlyn Dever, Jack Reynor, Ben O’Toole | Written by Mark Boal | Directed by Kathryn Bigelow

Kathryn Bigelow’s third collaboration with screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) is a powerful, angry drama about racism, police brutality and the complicity of silence. Though it focuses on an incident that took place exactly fifty years ago, it feels horrifyingly relevant today and will leave you shaking with rage.

Detroit begins with white police officers raiding a black, after-hours drinking club in July 1967 and violently mistreating its patrons, an incident that quickly flares up into the Detroit Riots and brings the National Guard to the streets of the city. Meanwhile, at a nearby theatre, aspiring singer Larry (Algee Smith) is devastated when the rioting outside forces the closure of the venue, right before

Second Opinion – Detroit (2017)

Detroit, 2017.

Directed by Kathryn Bigelow.

Starring John Boyega, Will Poulter, Anthony Mackie, Jack Reynor, Hannah Murray, Algee Smith, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell, Kaitlyn Dever, Ben O’Toole, Joseph David Jones, Ephraim Sykes, Leon Thomas III, Nathan Davis Jr., Peyton Alex Smith, Malcolm David Kelley, Gbenga Akinnabve, Chris Chalk, Jeremy Strong, Laz Alonzo, Austin Hebert, Miguel Pimentel, Kris Davis, and John Krasinski.

Synopsis:

Amidst the chaos of the Detroit Rebellion, with the city under curfew and as the Michigan National Guard patrolled the streets, three young African American men were murdered at the Algiers Motel.

There are few punches pulled in Kathryn Bigelow’s harrowing retelling of the Detroit riots of 1967. That is, until a white cop unwittingly stumbles upon the beaten, bruised body of Larry Reed-lead singer of pop group “The Dramatics – and with an absolute lack of self-awareness declares, “who could have done this to you.” It’s a rare moment of meat-headed,

‘Detroit’ Review: Dir. Kathryn Bigelow (2017)

Detroit review: Kathryn Bigelow directs this gritty, uncompromising story based around the true events of the summer of ’67 where three young African American men were murdered at the Algiers Motel in Detroit.

Detroit review by Paul Heath.

Detroit review, The Hollywood News – Image: Annapurna

Kathryn Bigelow follows up solid awards-worthy and indeed winning hits The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty with another hard-hitting drama set against the backdrop of 1960s Detroit.

The film takes place in the middle of the 1967 Detroit rebellion, a five-day long public disorder which began in the early hours of Sunday July 23rd, 1967, but more specifically at the events that took place at the Algiers Motel two nights later.

On that fateful evening, Larry Reed (Algee Smith) lead singer of the professional, black R&B group The Dramatics, along with his friend Fred Temple (Jacob Latimore) are involved in an incident which saw his tour bus attacked by rioters.
