Welcome to Death Row being shopped as a sequel to Straight Outta Compton

2 hours ago

Given the box office success of Straight Outta Compton, it’s no surprise that Hollywood is looking to capitalise on the hip-hop market, and according to THR, agency Apa has put together a package based upon S. Leigh Savidge’s book and documentary Welcome to Death Row, which it is shopping around as a sequel to Compton.

Welcome to Death Row charts “one of the most explosive and controversial periods in music history, when rappers like Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur forged mega-solo careers and Death Row Records’ Suge Knight reigned as the most powerful and feared hip-hop executive in the business.”

The $28 million-budgeted Straight Outta Compton has pulled in $145 million since its release in August, and is still to open in many international markets.

Is 2015 a Pivotal Year for Music Films?

4 hours ago

Matthew Lee on whether 2015 is a pivotal year for music films…

Confession time: I have not seen Love & Mercy. However, from the critics here at Flickering Myth, it would appear that music fans will definitely appreciate this biopic of Beach Boys leader Brian Wilson. I shall instead focus on the other music films that I’ve seen, and to see if 2015 is indeed an interesting year for music films. As I’m writing this, I’ve just recently came from seeing Straight Outta Compton. Short response, flawed but noteworthy; long response, please read on.

Straight Outta Compton retells the story of N.W.A.’s origin in the late 80s through to their eventual break-up. It recounts pivotal moments in the group’s history, notable Ice Cube’s feud with his former members, Dr. Dre’s record deal at Death Row Records under Suge Knight, and Eazy-e’s death due to an AIDS infection. »

Scream: The TV Series Season 1 Episode 9 Review – ‘The Dance’

4 hours ago

Martin Carr reviews the ninth episode of Scream: The TV Series

Earlier this week news broke of Wes Craven’s death from brain cancer. A debilitating, dignity stripping disease which I have had the unfortunate honour of witnessing first hand. However, with anything which has such a devastating affect it is best to reduce any column inches concerning this blight to zero. For now then let us focus on the man.

When I was growing up Craven was known for one film; Last House on The Left. A rape slash revenge flick which managed to make it onto the video nasty list, circa nineteen eighty something. By the way I was borne in seventy four, meaning my formative years were shaped by the video tape revolution. Age restrictions in rental shops were laughable, allowing me to watch everything from Shogun Assassin to Driller Killer. These gems combined with my imagination »

The theatrical release of the original Tremors in 1990 combined suspense-filled action, sci-fi imagination and witty humor in the tale of a tiny Nevada town terrorized by giant man-eating worms known as Graboids. The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters. In this all-new adventure that travels halfway around the world to South Africa, the Graboids and the Ass Blasters are not only bigger and badder but Tremors 5 introduces an additional unexpected surprise that raises the stakes in the battle for survival.

See Also: Watch the latest trailer for The Last Witch Hunter

The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder, a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today Kaulder is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. »

The Strain Season 2 Episode 7 Review – ‘The Born’

5 hours ago

Martin Carr reviews the seventh episode of The Strain season 2…

Once again I’m late to the party with fleeting impressions of episode seven. After another blinding forty minutes of television my conclusion is simple. The Strain was worth every penny they paid to adapt these contemporary tomes.

Bouncing back and forth between ancient Rome and Albania in perfectly integrated flashbacks, we spend our first proper time with barbarian gladiator Quinlan. Portrayed with a cultured edge by Rupert Penry Jones, we get biblical back story, calculating savagery and clinical detachment. So magnetic is he in fact that other elements pale into insignificance. Depicted through expositional voiceover by Bradley’s Setrakian, it felt in part like Ridley Scott’s sword and sandal epic minus the mighty Reed. Thankfully Penry Jones is no Russell Crowe, which gives him the ability to embrace other more intriguing characteristics beyond hack and slash soldiery.

Movie Review – Digging for Fire (2015)

6 hours ago

Digging for Fire, 2015.

Directed by Joe Swanberg.

Starring Jake Johnson, Rosemarie DeWitt, Orlando Bloom, Brie Larson, Anna Kendrick, Sam Rockwell, Sam Elliott, Chris Messina, Ron Livingston, and Jude Swanberg.

Synopsis:

The discovery of a bone and a gun send a husband and wife on separate adventures over the course of a weekend.

Digging for Fire is somewhat of a bait and switch; the brief synopsis from the studio above market the film as husband and father Tim (Jake Johnson) unintentionally stumbling across both a buried gun and potential human bone while doing some gardening at the house of the friend he, his wife Lee (Rosemarie DeWitt), and toddler child (actually played by director Joe Swanberg’s son, Jude Swanberg) are vacationing at during their absence, and this discovery triggering an already expanding rift in their marriage. You can’t say they lied, but the summary sure is misleading.

Judge Dredd co-creator says, “There will be a new Dredd film…”

7 hours ago

Ever since the ultra-violent 2012 Karl Urban headlined adaptation of Dredd hit theatres, fans everywhere have been holding their breath for a much deserved sequel. Unfortunately their hopes have been dashed several times despite highly publicised campaigns aimed at turning the studios heads.

However, there may be some shining light at the end of the tunnel as co-creator John Wagner took to Facebook to answer some fans questions.

During a conversation on whether or not a sequel could happen Wagner commented, “There will be a new Dredd film…it’s just a question of when.”

While this may sound a tad ambiguous, it’s really the first time that the creator has spoken about a new film. Alex Garland, who wrote the screenplay for Dredd and also produced, has previously admitted that another adaptation of some sort is inevitable in the near future although he won’t be involved.
