Fan Creates ‘Jurassic Park’ Sequel We All Would Have Paid To See

10 hours ago

We don’t usually post that many fan trailers here on the site, but we thought we’d make an exception for this one. A hugely talented fan has put the following trailer together for a potential Jurassic Park II using footage from the original 1993 movie and what looks to be some from the Bruce Willis-led Tears Of The Sun, his hugely under-rated 2003 movie, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Watch the Jurassic Park 2 fan trailer in the player at the bottom of the post.

Pitched at what appears to be Jurassic Park by way of Predator, the trailer alludes to a film we’d certainly stand in line to see.

Of course, back in 1997 we were ‘treated’ to a very lackluster sequel to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original, adapted from the source material by Michael Crichton. The Lost World: Jurassic Park, far from set the world on alight, even though it »

Lff 2017: ‘You Were Never Really Here’ Review: Dir. Lynne Ramsay (2017)

21 hours ago

You Were Never Really Here review: After a solid debut in Cannes back in May, Lynne Ramsay’s tight, 85-minute film reaches UK shores where it is already being referred to as a masterpiece.

You Were Never Really Here review by Orestes Adam.

You Were Never Really Here review

Less than 24 hours after exiting the cinema and I already envy my past self for being able to presently experience Lynne Ramsay’s gorgeous and deeply disturbing thriller. Since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this year, the film has been called many things; namely rushed and incomplete. While it is most certainly short (running at a mere 85 minutes) and is missing much of the direct exposition we as an audience have become conditioned to, Lynne Ramsay’s directorial follow-up to We Need to Talk About Kevin is a work of art just as poetic, experimental, brutal and visceral to »

Interview: Tyrese Gibson On ‘Fast & Furious 8’

16 October 2017 2:38 AM, PDT

Actor and R&B artist, Tyrese Gibson returns to the Fast & Furious 8 cast as Roman Pearce, a film that hits UK DVD and Blu-ray™ from today. We caught up with him to talk about working in the iconic franchise.

On the story:

Dominic Toretto compromised his family because he turned his back on us, and it was uncomfortable to shoot.

It was uncomfortable to watch.

I actually had a problem with them wanting to do that.

But I understood clearly that the family and the movie in itself needed to do something disruptive, and everyone in the world was just curious, like, why would Dom turn his back on us.

And the fact that we didn’t know what was going throughout the movie until the end just had the world on the edge of their seats.

And I didn’t realize how good it would be for the franchise, »

Lff 2017: ‘Downsizing’ Review: Dir. Alexander Payne (2017)

16 October 2017 12:30 AM, PDT

Downsizing review: Four years after the stunning Nebraska, Alexander Payne returns with this incredible, shrinking-man movie.

Downsizing review by Awais Irfan.

Downsizing review

Four years since his last film, the Academy-Award nominated Nebraska, and director Alexander Payne finally returns with a bang with his latest film: Downsizing.

Matt Damon is Paul Safranek, a kindly occupational therapist. Him and his wife, Audrey (Kristen Wiig), are looking for a new home but, strapped for cash and wanting more out of life, the pair decide to “downsize” – a new procedure that shrinks its subjects to around 4/5 inches tall, one that is affordable and also environmentally friendly. Payne is perhaps best known for telling very different, very character-driven stories and Downsizing is no exception. This is as original and rich a story as they come.

Of course, similarly to Sideways and The Descendants, Downsizing is hilarious. It boasts a very mature, smart sense of »

16 October 2017 12:00 AM, PDT

To celebrate the release of Norman, a new film which stars Richard Gere, Steve Buscemi and Michael Sheen, we have three copies of the film to give away on DVD.

Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, and strives to be everyone’s friend. His incessant networking leads him nowhere until he ends up befriending a young but charismatic politician, Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), at a low point in his life. Three years later, the politician becomes the Prime Minister of Israel. Norman uses Eshel’s name to leverage his biggest deal ever: a series of quid pro quo transactions linking the Prime Minister to Norman’s nephew (Michael Sheen), a rabbi (Steve Buscemi), a mogul (Harris Yulin), his assistant (Dan Stevens) and a treasury official from the Ivory Coast. Norman’s plans soon go awry, creating the potential »
