Chris Morgan talks The Legend of Conan: “Think Unforgiven… with a sword-wielding barbarian”

3 hours ago

Back in February, we heard that Will Beall (Gangster Squad) had taken over scriptwriting duties on The Legend of Conan, and now producer Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious) has revealed to The Arnold Fans that the screenplay is complete, and that the film will be a direct sequel to John MiliusConan the Barbarian which will catch up with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Cimmerian warrior some thirty years later.

“Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend — and is now an older man. Think Unforgiven…with a sword-wielding barbarian. Milius was a visionary. And a hero of mine. He established a milieu that is stunning and violent and clear — incomparable. The goal, the dream, is to live up to his world. »

“I love Gambit,” states Tatum. “I grew up in the South. My father’s from Loiuisiana. We’d go to New Orleans and I heard all the dialects. It felt so different from the rest of America; it has its own ancient culture. So I identified with that. And Gambit always felt the most real of the X-Men to me. He’s kind of a tortured »

Wayward Pines Season 1 Episode 2 Review – ‘Do Not Discuss Your Life Before’

6 hours ago

Martin Carr reviews the second episode of Wayward Pines

This dishevelled detective story nurtured by Chuck Hogan and realised by M. Night Shyamalan, takes a bunch of time to go the long way round. Taking on an increasingly creepy tone, Wayward Pines continues to mix up homage ripe territory with a sense of grounded reality. Something which doubtless appealed to the actors involved when this adaptation first hit their collective script piles.

A theory made fact by Matt Dillon and Juliette Lewis who continue building on last week’s impressive opener, playing it straight as tensions ramp up off screen. Something director of choice Charlotte Sieling exploits by allowing carte blanche elsewhere. Whilst simultaneously splitting the action evenly either side of ‘the fence’.

There is a tangible sense of forces converging as Shannyn Sossamon, who I remember from the Brett Easton Ellis’ Rules of Attraction, is given little to do but does it well. »

The Most Disappointing: Caring About Box Office

7 hours ago

Anghus Houvouras on caring about box office…

What is your favorite film?

An easy question to ask and a difficult question to answer. If you’re anything like me you struggle with narrowing it down to your 10 favorite films, much less a single solitary choice. Last week a friend asked me to name my top 10 favorite movies from 2000-2010 and it felt like a Herculean task. Just 10? That’s difficult. Now, how about another question.

How much did your favorite film make at the box office?

On the surface it seems like such a stupid question. And yet, every day there are a ridiculous number of people engaged in conversations about the success or lack thereof with movies based on their eventual bottom line.

Right now there’s a lot of this going on with Mad Max: Fury Road. People are passionate about the movie and want to celebrate George Miller’s magnum opus. »

Blu-ray Review – Island of Death (1976)

16 hours ago

Island of Death, 1976.

Directed by Nico Mastorakis.

Starring  Bob BellingJane LyleJessica Dublin, Gerard Gonalons and Janice McConnel.

Synopsis:

A British couple on a Greek island embark on a perverted killing spree, targeting anybody they think deserves punishing.

Anybody who has ever taken an interest in the enduring legacy of the video nasty era would have come across the title Island of Death at some point, mainly because it is a film that is so notoriously sleazy and offensive that it would be impossible not to probe into the subject of banned films and not find it languishing somewhere near the top of every list going.

A film with not much of a narrative, Island of Death begins with a couple called Christopher (Bob Belling) and Celia (Jane Lyle) having sex in a telephone box while Christopher phones his mother so she can listen to what he’s doing. »
