15 hours ago

Our friends at Severin Films are approaching the miraculous Blu-ray release of Danish dwarfsploitation classic, The Sinful Dwarf and they've done something special to celebrate. They are selling one of the most amazing/awful movie tie-ins I've ever seen, a Sinful Dwarf plush toy.Disturbing.This plush, which is an actual thing that I must own as soon as possible, is made in the extremely unsettling likeness of Sinful Dwarf star, Torben Bille. The doll sells for the criminally low price of $16.99 and is strictly limited in nature.

Trailer: Sex Finds A Way In The Future Dystopia of Equals

16 hours ago

A future-set love story in a world where emotions have been eradicated, Nicolas Hoult and Kristen Stewart participate in the long tradition of this idea in the history of pop literature, and cinema, from the big dumb action of The Island and Equilibrium, to George Lucas' cooler ideological Thx-1138, the flower-powered Logan's Run, ll the way back to George Orwell's seminal novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. It is good happenstance that Ridley Scott, who famously re-purposed the iconography of Orwell for Apple Inc. as a TV advertisement to launch their Macintosh computer, acts as the producer on Equals, a handsome looking indie from director Drake Doremus.I dug the film quite a bit when I caught it at Tiff last year. Maybe it is the sound track, but...

The Many Faces Of Ryan Reynolds

20 hours ago

Normally I use the quiz for an actor I really really like, so that would exclude Ryan Reynolds. Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the guy or anything, he just was never something I particularly looked forward to in films. On top of that, he's like a sympathetically nerdy albatross, joining genre projects which look good on paper at the start, but often turn out to be pretty bad afterwards. But then came Deadpool. and that film does shake things up a bit, as our reviewer Kwenton Bellette noticed. Most of all, Ryan has actually managed to make me laugh a few times in interviews and clips of his backstage shenanigans. The sense of fun he's having with this character is very contagious, and...

Vin Diesel posted the above photo a couple of hours ago on Facebook, welcoming Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen to the cast of XXX: The Return Of Xander Cage, the reboot of the other action franchise Diesel launched with director Rob Cohen.An anonymous source close to the production also tells us that Yen has been hastily cast to replace Jet Li, who has chosen to exit the project for as-yet officially undisclosed reasons.

Jackson and a rumoured Ice Cube returning, for incoming director D.J. Caruso.One of the great highlights of the Fast & Furious franchise has been its insanely diverse cast, and it is...

Review: Remember, Christopher Plummer Searches For A Very Particular Nazi

11 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST

It's been a while since one can be super excited about a new Atom Egoyan film. His last two, Devil's Knot, a film about the West Memphis Three case, and Captive, a chilly thriller about a child sex ring, found few champions. It's all the more reason to applaud Remember, a return to form of sorts that echoes the handheld looseness of Egoyan's earliest films like Next of Kin. The key to the enjoyment lies in a compelling turn by Christopher Plummer playing a man with dementia who's sent off to hunt down a Nazi commander of Auschwitz. Playing out like an extended road movie, the film is sentimental without being trite. Along the way the film explores issues of loss intertwined with the human...

Review: Nina Forever, Blood And Sex In A Droll Relationship Drama

11 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST

I had a university professor (English literature) who was fond of saying, "Nobody walks away happy from a threeway." I wonder what he would have to say about the Blaine Brothers' Nina Forever, a dark but droll relationship drama that layers on the blood and the sex. This movie, quite literally, has to change the bed sheets often.  Rob is a bright young man whose future is put on hold after a vehicle accident leaves his girlfriend Nina dead, and his own psyche is scarred to the point of depression and suicide. While receiving support from Nina's parents, who were, it seems, closer to him than his own, Rob quietly toils at a low wage, low engagement, job as a cashier clerk. There he meets Holly,...

Review: In Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong, The Fundamental Things Apply

11 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST

Here's the basic plotline of producer and now first-time writer-director Emily Ting's immensely charming romance Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong, boiled down to its basic essence. A man and a woman meet, and -- spoiler alert -- fall in love over the course of two separate nights in an alluring, non-us city, in this case, as you probably gathered from the title, Hong Kong. Ok, so let's address the cinematic elephant in the room right off the bat. Yes, of course Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise and its two sequels are unavoidable talking points with respect to Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong. And to her credit, Ting doesn't try to deny or walk away from these obvious antecedents. But continually harping on this anxiety-of-influence angle, as too many commentators on...

Rotterdam 2016: What The Audiences Liked Best

11 February 2016 8:30 AM, PST

(Critics, schmitics... ) Last weekend saw the end of this year's International Film Festival Rotterdam, and all prizes were awarded. And while critic prizes are interesting (though often unfathomable), my favorite prize is always the Audience Award. Which films were appreciated the most by the paying public? The ticket price was 11 Euro a film this year, and us Dutch have a reputation for being mean and mean-spirited, so rest assured people were grumbling about the festival's cost and wanted to get their money's worth. So how did the festival perform this year on the movie appreciation front? Well, pretty damn fine, actually. Check this out......

Review: Where To Invade Next Travels Long And Far

11 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST

Michael Moore, that progressive shlub you could hang with, has done something smart.  His latest film, Where to Invade Next, opts to have fun.  Moore has always been known for his effective use of comedy in conjunction with his agenda-driven ventures. But this time, he more freely embraces his image as an out of shape, disheveled everyman to great effect as he hopscotches from one country to the next chatting up locals and getting to the bottom of the global what's-what. The movie's too long, too unwieldy, and very much all over the place, but it's a forgivable ramble. More-so than some of his previous works, he seems to be genuinely enjoying his process of agitpropping, even as it's also apparent that he regards all of this...

Review: Touched With Fire, Earnest And Sincere About Bipolar Disorder

11 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST

Earnest. Very, very earnest. And sincere; very, very sincere. And beyond that, what can one say about a film that deals so nakedly with a very serious illness -- point out it has pimples? Touched With Fire, originally titled Mania Days when it debuted at ">SXSW last year, is an earnest and sincere character study of two people dealing with bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness. Paul Dalio wrote and directed the film, influenced by his own past struggles with the condition, which can cause radical shifts in mood, energy, and activity levels. Carla (Katie Holmes) and Marco (Luke Kirby) meet cute in a support group at a hospital. They've both been confined at the psychiatric facility and are unhappy about it, though it...

Rotterdam 2016 Review: Paths Of The Soul Shows Purpose In Pilgrimage

10 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST

Years ago, when Blu-ray was a new platform and newly acquired by me, I searched the world for the most spectacular discs to play. Be it the Us-release of Baraka or the Hong Kong release of Red Cliff, I'd import it. But few discs were as stunning as the Chinese documentary series Asian Corridor in Heaven from 2007, which showed the (then) current travel over the old trade routes through the Himalayas. While the discs are in 1080i instead of 1080p, and some of the camerawork looks washed out due to the intense Uv at the snowy heights, most of the footage in it is so often jawdroppingly gorgeous that the boxset is still one of my dearest possessions in my collection. In fact, each...
