Twin Peaks, Ep. 2.22, “Beyond Life And Death”: How’s Annie? How’s Annie? How’s Annie?

27 August 2015 8:45 PM, PDT

Twin Peaks, Season 2, Episode 22, “Beyond Life And Death”

Written by Mark Frost & Harley Peyton & Robert Engels

Directed by David Lynch

Aired June 10, 1991 on ABC

“Wow, Bob, wow. Fire, walk with me.” – The Man From Another Place

Les: And so, we’ve come to the end of our look back at Twin Peaks. After two seasons and 30 episodes of cherry pie and damn good coffee, dancing dwarves and one-armed men, Invitation To Love and One-Eyed Jack’s, Ghostwood Estates and Black Lodge, cross-dressing David Duchovny and near-deaf David Lynch, Twin Peaks was canceled in the summer of 1991. Going from its position as a genuine hit—with a premiere watched by over 34 million people—the life of Twin Peaks ended not with a bang but a whimper. The show lost its focus as Lynch and Mark Frost stepped back, and audiences stepped back along with it, the show shedding viewers every week »

Here’s more proof of Kristen Wiig’s versatility in trailer for ‘Nasty Baby’

27 August 2015 8:12 PM, PDT

As an actress known mostly for comedy, Kristen Wiig has certainly been dipping her toes into all sorts of genres lately, including indie coming-of-age drama with The Diary of a Teenage Girl, quirky indie comedy with Welcome To Me, and sci-fi with the forthcoming The Martian. While she’s still making comedies (Masterminds and the much anticipated Ghostbusters reboot), she’s still dabbling in the independent film world with Nasty Baby, the new film written and directed by Sebastian Silva (Crystal Fairy & the Magical Cactus). Here’s the synopsis:

A close-knit trio navigates the idea of creating life, while at the same time being confronted with a brutal scenario that causes them to take a life.

The international trailer for the film was released today, and it’s certainly a little odd. While showcasing the story of a gay couple (Sebastian Silva and Tunde Adebimpe) seeking help from their best »

Watch the Brilliant and dark commercial for Banksy’s Dismaland

27 August 2015 7:54 PM, PDT

Last week, Banksy’s bizarre theme park was introduced to the world, but the amusement park wouldn’t be complete without a commercial. Although the art installation is already sold out, the mysterious artist took to his YouTube channel to release a promotional video enticing families to visit Dismaland and it’s just morbid and as you’d expect. Watch as a family in need of a vacation heads to the most nightmarish place on Earth where they’re greeted with police vans, metal detectors and the darker side of pop culture. You’ll see Cinderella’s crashed pumpkin carriage, a highway accident, toy boats packed with fleeing immigrants, kids shooting machine guns, a model village trashed by riots, and a stand offering pocket money loans to children. All those with a wicked sense of humor or those who simply hate schmaltzy theme parks will love what they see.

Hannibal, Ep. 3.12, “The Number of the Beast is 666…” raises the stakes for the finale

27 August 2015 12:57 PM, PDT

Hannibal, Season 3, Episode 12, “The Number of the Beast is 666…”

Written by Jeff Vlaming & Angela Lamanna and Bryan Fuller & Steve Lightfoot

Directed by Guillermo Navarro

Airs Saturdays at 10pm (Et) on NBC

Frederick Chilton has had a rough go of it in his time on Hannibal. He makes himself an easy target—the man has learned nothing, it would seem, from his disastrous experiences with serial killers over the years—but when faced with the enormity of the Dragon, Chilton is so unabashedly human, so relatable and terrified one can’t help but feel for him. Raúl Esparza has been a delight in the role throughout his tenure on the series, often giving a comedic lift to otherwise very dour episodes and arcs, but he’s particularly impressive here. Chilton’s terrifying capture by the Dragon makes up the center of the episode, but Esparza gets much more to play than fear. »

Kcc: Reitzell evolves the sound of the Dragon in Hannibal, Ep. 3.12, “The Number of the Beast is 666…”

27 August 2015 10:03 AM, PDT

Kate’s Classical Corner: Hannibal, Ep. 3.12, “The Number of the Beast is 666…”

As a classical musician, I can’t help but be influenced in my interpretation of Hannibal by its amazing score and soundtrack, composed and compiled by music supervisor Brian Reitzell. This is not intended to be a definitive reading of Reitzell or showrunner Bryan Fuller’s intentions in regards to the music, but rather an exploration of how these choices affect my appreciation of the given episode. Read my review of “The Number of the Beast is 666…” here.

Classical piece featured:

Piano Quartet No. 1 in G minor, K. 478, Allegro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1785): Hannibal receives fanmail

Mozart’s first composition for piano quartet, this piece is lovely and dark, fitting to accompany a gift from Dolarhyde to Hannibal. However, this scene’s placement in the episode makes it a bit of an odd choice. While Reitzell makes »

New trailer for Paolo Sorrentino’s ‘Youth’ talks about the regrets that age brings

27 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT

Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino is poised to return to theatres with a new film.

Titled Youth, the film is Sorrentino’s first since 2013. As with his other films, Sorrentino takes on both directing and screenplay writing duties, working with a cast this time around that includes Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz, Jane Fonda, and Paul Dano.

The film’s synopsis is as follows:

Fred and Mick, two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children’s confused lives, Mick’s enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants at »

Trailer for Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ keeps focus away from supporting cast

27 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT

The Hours and The Reader director Stephen Daldry is back with a new project, this one set in the slums of Rio.

Titled Trash, the film is Daldry’s fifth feature-length directorial effort. The film itself is an adaptation of Andy Mulligan’s 2010 novel, with three newcomers in the lead roles in Luis Eduardo, Rickson Tevez, and Gabriel Weinstein. Richard Curtis wrote the screenplay, and the supporting cast includes Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, and Rooney Mara.

The film’s synopsis is as follows:

When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael and Gardo, realize that what they’ve found must be important.

This is Daldry’s first »

Directed by Tim Minear

Written by Tim Minear

Aired July 15th, 2003 on Fox

Welcome to Sound on Sight’s summer look back at Firefly, the beloved yet short-lived series that aired on Fox during the 2002-2003 TV season. Every Thursday, we will revisit an episode at a time of the show’s one and only season, in the order that they were meant to be seen. The correct sequence is accurately reflected on most, if not all, streaming services that currently have the show, but for those watching via other methods, the accurate order can be found here. Now, without further ado, time to spend some time with the most entertaining group of grifters in The ‘Verse.

How much does it take for a friendship forged in the savagery of war to fritter away into nothing? Or even worse, until it gets to a point »

‘When Animals Dream’ is both haunting and beautiful

26 August 2015 11:56 PM, PDT

When Animals Dream

Written by Rasmus Birch

Directed by Jonas Alexander Arnby

Denmark, 2014

When Twilight debuted in the aughts everyone assumed that the copycats would last forever. Forever only lasted about four years, but the lasting impact was made by low-key fare like Let the Right One In. Taking a cue from that 2008 film, When Animals Dream places emphasis on atmosphere and dread, rather than buckets of blood. Eerie films like this live or die on their setting alone, and there is no more fantastic location to use than a small town on the rocky coast of Northern Denmark. Mikkel Hess’ score, a blend of traditional folk songs and harrowing orchestral, is another excellent mood-setter.

Marie (Sonia Suhl) is a teenaged outsider living in a small fishing village. Her homelife is dominated by her overly protective father (Lars Mikkelsen), and her mother, who is confined to a wheelchair and dulled by sedatives. »

This is Our Design #38: “The Number of the Beast is 666…”

26 August 2015 9:21 PM, PDT

 

Welcome back to This is Our Design. All good things come in small packages. All great podcasts come a couple days late. We’re not really sure if either of these things is true, but we know this: you don’t owe us your listenership…you owe us Awe (we’re actually not very sure about this, either; we just like to believe it). This week, co-hosts Sean Colletti and Kate Kulzick are joined by author Cooper S. Beckett of Eat The Rudecast as the crew breaks down yet another strong central sequence in addition to talking about folk tales and much more. This all leads in, of course, to “Kate’s Classical Corner” and “The Devil in the Details,” which are always ready to shock and disturb you with how thorough they are. As always, you can e-mail us at thisisourdesign666[at]gmail.com.

Interpersonal Issues and Outlandish Baddies Intersect in ‘Batgirl’ #43

26 August 2015 8:58 PM, PDT

Batgirl #43

Written by Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart

Art by Babs Tarr

Breakdowns by Tarr and Michel Lacombe

Colors by Serge Lapointe

Published by DC Comics

Batgirl #43 is a beautiful, energetic blend of interpersonal struggles between Batgirl and her “tech help” Frankie, who has started going out on her own little missions along with a half dozen other little dramas in her personal life with another techno thriller. With tigers because villainous animals make for a nice fight scene. Writers Brenden Fletcher and Cameron Stewart combine oodles of different threats from Gail Simone’s Batgirl run, the previous Hooq arc as well as Batgirl’s relationship with Luke Fox to construct an organic plot from Babs’ supporting cast. (Even though there are a couple new faces.) But artist Babs Tarr, co-breaker downer (That’s probably not the proper term Michel Lacombe, and colorist Serge Lapointe continue to make Batgirl the »

Watch the animated short film ‘Odin’s Afterbirth’, about Vikings fighting supernatural entities

26 August 2015 7:22 PM, PDT

 

Viking lore and supernatural creatures have often been ripe material for stories through numerous generations, extending even to the modern day. With The History Channel’s fictional series revolving around the exploits of real-life vikings, and Marvel’s currently successful comic book at movie series revolving around their version of the Norse God Thor, the stories continue to fascinate people across many mediums. Similarly, supernatural creatures have been the subject of a number of tales over time, with new ones being told every day in every medium.

Now Vimeo user and animator Joseph Bennett has brought the two together in a clash against each other. Titled Odin’s Afterbirth, the short film is animated, allowing for more visceral action that is taken advantage of. In addition to doing the animation, Bennett also provided some of the voices and edited the whole short, which had previously been released over a number of years in three parts. »

‘Cyborg’ #2- Mr. Human

Cyborg #2

Written by David Walker

Pencils by Ivan Reis

Inks by Joe Prado

Colors by Adriano Lucas

Published by DC Comics

Cyborg #2 picks up immediately with the aftermath of the disastrous battle that the Tekbreakers retreated from. Readers are left to wonder just where in the DC Universe they set up shop, but our brief catch up with what’s left of the Strike Team tells us some interesting details. If you remember the 8-Page preview for the title, Cyborg and the Justice League were attacked by the very same team of Tekbreakers and wound up “killing” Victor in battle for “Technology Purposes.” An ally of the Team, a blonde women (with some very Deus Ex glasses) in a hovering chair a la Professor Xavier scolds them for killing their only hope and dooming another universe lest the Technosapiens get their hands on the technology they hold.

VOD: Real-life Mortal Kombat Fatalities has to be seen to be believed

26 August 2015 6:29 PM, PDT

After Street Fighter laid the groundwork for the fighting game, Mortal Kombat hit the scene, setting a high-water mark for realistic digitized graphics and pushing boundaries with its high levels of bloody violence, including, most notably, its Fatalities. It sparked so much controversy for its depiction of extreme violence and gore that it led to the creation of the Esrb (the video game rating system). Looking back, the original game seems like child’s play when compared to the latest installment, Mortal Kombat X. And if the Fatalities in Mortal Kombat X make you squeamish, you’re really not going to like the real-life, live-action version created by the Australian YouTube group known as RackaRacka. Warning: this video is extremely gruesome. Watch at your own risk.

26 August 2015 6:03 PM, PDT

One of the greatest genre film festivals in the world (some say the best) has just announced its second wave of titles, including a few titles so anticipated you’ll wish you’re in Austin next month. Below are 35 more films to add to the 23 already announced in the first wave. They include Ridley Scott’s The Martian, Yorgos LanthimosThe Lobster, Ben Wheatley’s adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s High-Rise and Jeremy Saulnier’s follow up to Blue Ruin, The Green Room.

Ultimatum #1-5 (2008-2009)

Pencils by David Finch

Published by Marvel Comics

This week, I am deciding to eat my vegetables before dessert and am reviewing the Ultimatum crossover series many weeks before I get to it in my History of the Ultimate Universe series. I am also combining my column with our mini event “Worst Comics Month”. This is  because after I finished binge reading Ultimate Spider-Man Volume One and decided to read this “Ultimatum” series, which filled the gaps in some of the final issues, I (the neophyte comics fan) felt like I had truly experienced a bad comic with its ugly art, “shocking” plot reveals with little or no build-up, and jarring switches in tone from Hulk switching from dumb to smart to in between in the space of a panel to »
