Criterion Collection: Breaker Morant |Blu-ray Review

29 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Following the mid-70s wave of critically acclaimed Australian cinema, thanks to names like Peter Weir, Fred Schepisi and Gillian Armstrong, director Bruce Beresford would score his first of several iconic moments in cinematic history with 1980’s Breaker Morant, based on the play by Kenneth G. Ross. The film premiered at the 1980 Cannes Film Festival, and was awarded a Best Supporting Acting accolade for Jack Thompson (a category that no longer officially exists), and began a prolific decade for Beresford, which closed with a controversial Best Picture win at the 1989 Academy Awards with Driving Miss Daisy. Documenting a particularly heinous miscarriage of justice from the country’s military history, Beresford’s title helped established a legacy of commemorative reenactments from his native country and showcases a trio of excellent performances.

Set during the Boer War at the turn of the century in South Africa, a trio of three Australian lieutenants, »

Box Office: ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Breaks September Record With $47.5 Million Debut

27 September 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hotel Transylvania 2” easily topped the weekend box office, sinking its teeth into an impressive $47.5 million, and providing a big win for star Adam Sandler and Sony Pictures, the studio behind the animated franchise.

Both had endured rough patches at ticket booths of late. Sandler, once among the most consistently commercial leading men in Hollywood, has suffered a series of flops like “Blended,” “That’s My Boy” and “Jack and Jill” that have inspired questions about his bankability. And Sony, which had its inner workings laid bare in last year’s hack attack by North Korea, was subjected to a summer that saw films like “Aloha” and Sandler’s video game comedy “Pixels” rejected by audiences. It has been on the upswing in recent weeks, fielding modest hits like “War Room” and “The Perfect Guy,” but this is the studio’s biggest opening since “22 Jump Street” debuted to $57 million in »

Should we really fear movie sequels?

9 May 2015 1:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James argues that instant dread may not be the best initial reaction to a sequel announcement...

There's a new Pitch Perfect movie coming out next week. I knew that they were making Pitch Perfect 2 but I didn't realise it was coming around for general release so soon. I became aware when I saw a poster for the film in the lobby of my local multiplex last week.

My first thought was "Oh, Pitch Perfect 2 is coming out". My second thought, sadly, was "Hurm. Do we really need a Pitch Perfect sequel?" (This is the crucial thought so remember this). My third thought was "Ah, it's coming out on the same week as Mad Max: Fury Road." I then had fantastical visions of Max singing a capella mash-ups in the haze of the post-apocalyptic outback, bustin' rhymes and bustin' feral thug-brains in perfect harmony. There's your sequel pitch - 'Mad Max: The Rockatansky Rock-Off'. »
