Review: Power Rangers - The Movie (1995), the embodiment of 90s "radness"

11 hours ago

I consider myself a “90s kid” (I was born in 1990), which means I grew up with the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers on TV. It was quite the phenomenon —the show was an immediate success both in the United States and my home country of Peru, which led to all sorts of merchandise being sold in stores. The Rangers were everywhere, from action figures to lunch boxes and kid mattresses, which meant a big screen adaptation was pretty much inevitable. Nevertheless, some people simply couldn’t imagine a big budget version of these characters being released in cinemas. After all, the Power Rangers were a mix between a Japanese TV show called Super Sentai —the fight scenes and the effects-heavy sequences were directly lifted from this...

New Logan Lucky Trailer: Has Steven Soderbergh Lost His Mind?

12 hours ago

A new trailer for Steven Soderbergh's Logan Lucky suggests that the filmmaker may have lost his mind. Enacted by Channing Tatum and Adam Driver (as brothers), Daniel Craig (as an expert they bust out of prison), Katie Homes (as an ex), Riley Keough, Sebastian Stan, Seth MacFarlane, and Katherine Waterston, the characterizations are, shall we say, broadly comic. Rebecca Blunt wrote the script, and something about it drew Soderbergh back into the directing chair; I trust that he has some great ideas in store for his return to the big screen. Enjoy the trailer below. It looks ... wild! Logan Lucky is due to his theaters on August 18....

Review: Okja Makes For a Grand Feast

13 hours ago

An endearing family adventure, a bitter ecological plea and a rousing action film all rolled into one, Okja proves once more that Bong Joon Ho is a master of twisting something new out of the familiar. While Netflix's gamble screams to be seen on the big screen, this colorful fantasy should be warmly received by global subscribers. In 2007, the Mirando Corporation, run by the highly eccentric and publicity-crazed Lucy Mirando, sends 26 superpigs to farmers across the world, beginning a ten-year long competition to crown the Best Superpig and bring it back for a celebration in New York. When the time comes, 14-year-old Mija, living high in the mountains in the Gangwon Province of South Korea with her grandfather, is torn from her best...

Melbourne 2017: Massive Cannes Lineup Covers All Bases

14 hours ago

Miff announcement time again! Every year the Melbourne International Film Festival relishes in its big catches from the Croisette, and this year has basically peaked, with picks appealing to every moviegoer. More after the bump. Thirty-five features from Cannes are set to sweep audiences into worlds of imagination, wonder and varying realities through high-stake thrillers, darkly witty comedies, compelling documentaries and the latest cinematic discoveries. The festival will present big award winners from this year’s Cannes, including the 2017 Palme d’Or winning The Square, a deliriously strange detonation of art and imagination from Swedish director Ruben Öslund, whose Force Majeure was a Miff highlight screening), featuring a riveting performance from Danish actor Claes Bang and scene stealing performances from Elizabeth Moss and Dominic West; Loveless, the must-see...

Hugh Jackman in The Greatest Showman Trailer: It Doesn't Start Until the Bearded Lady Sings

14 hours ago

Last seen as a grizzled, aging mutant in Logan, Hugh Jackman is reborn as P.T. Barnum -- yes, the circus guy -- in The Greatest Showman. Reportedly, it's a musical, though the first trailer hints around that, instead focusing on Barnum's days in dire circumstances before he comes up with the idea of a very diverse circus and "show business" itself. Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya are among the supporting players. The Greatest Showman is set to hit U.S. theaters on December 25, 2017, and then expand wide in 2018. Watch the trailer below....

Scandinavian 2017: Nordic Film Festival Brings TV Noir Director To Australia

15 hours ago

The Scandinavian Film Festival is on its way and will feature twenty films hailing from different parts of the Nordic. Some of the films on offer dabble in Noir, and with the recent boom of the 'Nordic Noir' craze hitting Australia, it is fitting that the festival has chosen such a fascinating and high-profile guest. More after the bump. Presented by Palace Cinemas, the fourth Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival which kicks off nationally on 11 July will welcome renowned prolific Danish director/writer Charlotte Sieling (The Killing, Borgen, The Bridge, Homeland) to Sydney and Melbourne with her film The Man, a satire exploring an intergenerational rivalry in the trendy Copenhagen arts scene.

Now on Blu-ray: All The Colours Of The Dark Shines In HD From Shameless Films

20 hours ago

Jane is a tragedy magnet. Plagued by the murder of her mother in her childhood and the recent loss of her unborn child in a car accident, Jane is beset by trippy nightmares that seem to foretell her own impending death at the hands of a blue-eyed man. Her neighbor Mary suggests that perhaps the cure to her woes is to let go and let the Dark Lord have his way with her and she invites Jane to join with her in a black mass to take the pain away. Unsurprisingly, this is not helpful and the nightmares seem to be bleeding into Jane's reality bit by bit. Who is the blue-eyed killer and can she prevent her own death? To find the answer, Jane...

Now on Blu-ray: Power Rangers Makes For A Mediocre Film, But A Great Disc

27 June 2017 4:30 PM, PDT

When it was announced that the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers was getting a reboot for the cinema, a large portion of geek community let out a collective groan. I was never a big fan of Mmpr back in the day, but even I was a bit puzzled as to why this property was being resucitated as a big budget film, then it dawned on me. Superheroes. While I thought of Mmpr as a tokusatsu, teens in spandex fighting rubber monsters kitsch-fest, it's clear that the thought behind this reboot was to capitalize on the superhero boom of the last decade, and I can't say I blame them. The '90s was a decade largely devoid of superhero action, certainly in live action, so the Power Rangers...

Now on Blu-ray: John Wick: Chapter 2 Comes Home On Stacked Blu-ray

27 June 2017 4:00 PM, PDT

Keanu Reeves continues his adventures as the apex predator in John Wick: Chapter 2, now on Blu-ray from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Peter Martin reviewed the film upon it's cinema release earlier this year and wasn't 100% convinced that the film was necessarily a step of from its predecessor: The original was a marvel of construction and execution, which makes topping it a daunting task. Instead of devising something entirely new, therefore, the decision was made to ... make the same movie all over again! The action is (again) so over the top that it quickly gains escape velocity from reality. The ludicrous plot holes and superhuman tolerance for bodily violence are more about the rhythms of the punches and gun blasts and knife thrusts and...

Notes on Streaming: Glow, Wonder Women of the 1980s

27 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT

Necessity may be the mother of invention, but desperation was the father of women's wrestling in the 1980s. Created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, Glow is a fictionalized version of how the real-life Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling came into existence in the mid-1980s. It's largely seen through the eyes of aspiring actress Ruth Wilder, portrayed by Alison Brie, in a brilliant, extremely well-nuanced performance. The series introduces a dozen women who, for the most part, have no experience or even much knowledge about wrestling. Ruth is typical in this regard; she's the epitome of a struggling dramatic artist. She still has high regard for her profession, but she keeps butting up against the glass ceiling imposed upon women, who are relegated to supporting or...

27 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT

Spanish director Javier Chillon establishes a properly fatalistic mood for his short film They Will All Die in Space simply with its title, but still, questions remain. Who are they? How will they die? And why? Watch the extremely well-crafted film below to find out. (Spoiler: it's worth it.) And then visit the director's official site for more information....

27 June 2017 10:00 AM, PDT

Choi Wooshik’s outstanding performance in 2014’s haunting, heartbreaking Set Me Free not only won him the Busan International Film Festival Actor of the Year and the prestigious Blue Dragon awards, it also gained him a place in the incredible international cast of Director Bong Joon-ho’s Okja, as a rebellious avatar for Bong’s message to today’s youth.   In his first overseas interview, Choi told me about his days on the Okja set, working with Us stars, Steven Yeun and Paul Dano, and the possibility of future western projects.   The Lady Miz Diva:  Please tell us how you came to Okja?    Choi Wooshik:  There was this movie called Set Me Free.  It happened to be that one of Director Bong’s assistants said, “Oh, there...

Have A Nice Day: Full Trailer Premiere For Acclaimed Chinese Animated Thriller

27 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT

The simple fact that Chinese animator Liu Jian's thriller Have A Nice Day even exists at all is somthing of a marvel. Independent animation is a tough arena to succeed in in any nation, independent animation intended for adults exponentially more so. Throw in the fact that Have A Nice Day was created in a nation not known for its local animation production on any scale while being very much known for taking an active role in how said nation is portrayed on screen and, well, you can probably see where this is going ... Driver Xiao Zhang robs 1 million dollars from his boss in order to fix his girlfriend's failed plastic surgery, but he is soon faced with a bigger predicament when a...

Have Your Say: What's The Worst Tagline You've Ever Seen?

27 June 2017 8:00 AM, PDT

You know how it goes: you're strolling through the city, or you're waiting for public transportation... either way you're with friends, family or colleagues, and the conversation shifts to the huge movie poster you all just walked past. This happened to me this weekend, and the poster's movie was Christopher Nolan's upcoming war drama Dunkirk. And what were we discussing? The tagline. As seen above, the otherwise perfectly serviceable Dunkirk poster sports the following tagline: "The Event That Shaped Our World". And the discussion quickly became hilarious. Chaos theory came up, which states the huge effects even the flapping of a butterfly's wings have on the entire world (and indeed universe) some time later. Literally every single event shapes our world, making the tagline a...

Review: Baby Driver, Top-Notch Action Mixed With Sheer Fun

27 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT

Voom voom voom! So begins Edgar Wright's Baby Driver, which finds Ansel Elgort behind the wheel as a getaway driver, rocking out to a song blasting from the buds planted in his ears. In the privacy of his own space, the young driver known as Baby lip-syncs with total abandon, or as much abandon as he can manage while strapped into an automobile parked outside a bank while his criminal cohorts rob it. Soon they are racing down the streets and highways of Atlanta, the cohorts bug-eyed as Baby revs, shifts, and jams that wheel. The hot pursuit is an early tour de force in the movie, which pays homage to Walter Hill's The Driver in a distinctly different manner than Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive....
