Kid Dangerous: Trio of Directors Craft Endearing 80’s Retro Flick
Operating comfortably within the lines of the well-tread grooves of genre paths explored before than it does reinvent the parameters of its retro engaged flavoring, the surprisingly endearing Turbo Kid manages to engage as heartfelt pastiche. Co-directed by Francois Simard, Anouk Whissell (who also star as the father and mother of the main character) and Yoann-Karl Whissell, the gonzo mash-up of exaggerated, bloody violence with the charming earnestness of its protagonists plays surprisingly well even if its narrative trajectory lacks enough remarkable characteristics to differentiate itself from certain films it pays homage to. At times enchanting, particularly with a handful of colorfully detailed character developments, it’s a romantically inclined love letter to a more inventive and playful era of filmmaking sorely missed.

Dubsmash is the exquisite art of dubbing short selfie videos with famous sounds, and Olivia Munn is better at it than any of us. Shortly before she partied it up with her fellow X-Men: Apocalypse co-stars at the wrap party, her and her boyfriend, football player Aaron Rodgers, had some fun with the popular app, channelling everything from Princess Bride to Mariah Carey. #princessbride A video posted by Olivia Munn (@oliviamunn) on Aug 22, 2015 at 1:40am Pdt As fate would have it, their first video is their best video.

Summer Of Love weekend | Frightfest | Studio Ghibli Forever And Ever | Floating Cinema
In October, BFI Southbank kicks off a three-month season of cinema dedicated to love – and the British Museum is hosting a handful of open-air screenings as an appetiser. The movies chosen to be shown in the forecourt under the stars give a good idea of the eclecticism of the season: there is Merchant-Ivory’s acclaimed film of Em Forster’s A Room With A View (Thu); Terrence Malick’s criminal lovers-on-the-run debut, Badlands (pictured, Fri); and The Princess Bride (29 Aug), which is as much about the art of storytelling as the magic of love.

While Christopher Guest is a familiar face to film fans for his numerous roles, including that of Nigel Tufnel in This Is Spinal Tap and the six-fingered Count Rugen in The Princess Bride, his work behind the camera has been similarly prolific, garnering him critical acclaim throughout his career. Having co-written This is Spinal Tap, Guest made his directorial debut in 1989 with The Big Picture, going on to direct numerous other films, with his last feature, For Your Consideration, coming in 2006. Guest moved to television shortly after, with his series Family Tree running for one season on HBO in 2013, and many fans wondering when he’d return behind the camera. Guest’s next project has now been announced, but it’s also poised to be on a small screen, as his next film will be a Netflix original.
Guest joins a growing roster of original movie creators and selections for the streaming service, »

It’s been a while since we’ve seen William Goldman‘s name on a script. The now-legendary writer brought us Marathon Man and All The President’s Men, before going on to write industry bible Adventures In The Screen Trade and fantasy classic The Princess Bride. Now he’s back with Wild Card, an adaptation of his novel Heat. It’s an Elmore Leonard-style tapestry of world weary characters seeking vengeance or enlightenment in the neon jungle of Las Vegas. You could easily see an actor-director combo like Clint Eastwood and Don Siegel taking on the material – though of course the book was published in the Eighties, »

This weekend, three itty-bitty evil henchmen get a prequel of their very own in Minions. The third Despicable Memovie follows everyone's favourite goggle-wearing, overall-clad minions – Stuart, Kevin, and Bob – as they travel across continents, unsuccessfully aiding potential masters such as Napoleon, a T. Rex, and Sandra Bullock, amongst others, before finding Gru (Steve Carell).
Just in time for Stuart, Kevin, and Bob's return to theatres, we compiled a list of cinema's best on-screen trios B.G. "Before Gru" – so sadly, the Minions are absent here, though you can visit them at Cineplex theatres starting this weekend!
The very many honourable mentions include Legolas, Gimli, and Aragorn of the original Lord of the Rings trilogy; Vizzini, Fezzik, and Inigo Montoya from The Princess Bride; Alexandra, Jane, and Sukie from The Witches of Eastwick; Henry, Jimmy, and Tommy from Goodfellas; Don, Cathy, and Cosmo from Singin' in the Rain; The Dude, Walter, »

Every now and again a movie trailer comes along that is all kinds of wrong for the movie it is trying to promote. This is a list of some of the worst head scratchers.
Just because a movie is good doesn’t necessarily mean that its trailer is as well. Many times the filmmakers responsible for the film itself don’t have much input (if any) into the trailer. When that happens, the trailer can end up misinterpreting the intent of the film. At other times, the trailer may try too hard to get audiences interested in the film, going so far as to show all the best parts from the film. This includes giving away the twists or the ending, such that people who may have watched the trailer before seeing the film already know how it ends. This is a look at some of the worst offenders, those »

When it was announced in March that Stephen King's classic horror novel Misery was getting the Broadway treatment, Elizabeth Marvel was intended to play the juicy role of number-one fan and number-one torturous motivator Annie Wilkes on stage. Due to House of Cards commitments, however, Marvel has left the project and Laurie Metcalf has joined it in her place.
Variety reports that Laurie Metcalf will play Annie Wilkes in the Misery Broadway play. Widely known for her stellar turn as Jackie Harris on Roseanne in addition to a plethora of other TV and film credits, Metcalf is perhaps best known to horror fans for her intense, unflinching portrayal as Mrs. Loomis in Scream 2.
As Wilkes, Metcalf will inflict pain on author Paul Sheldon, played by Bruce Willis in his Broadway debut. Metcalf is no stranger to the stage, having performed both off Broadway in Domesticated and on Broadway in The Other Place. »

Schlubby working class hero, Crime And Punishment’s Porfiry Petrovich for primetime, fatherly fighter of crime... I was introduced to the rumple-coated and rumple-faced one back in 1987, following an off-hand attempt from my mother to get five-year-old me to sit down and shut up for a few minutes. Desperately looking for something to grab my attention, and zeroing in on what ITV happened to be repeating that Sunday, her “Oh, look! Columbo! You like him, don’t you?” – “Huh?” – “He’s the one with the cigar and coat, you know him!” got me to sit down, be quiet, and puzzle over whether or not I did like him. She turned out to be right – I liked him a lot.
By then in the late 80s, Lieutenant Columbo had been »
When American anime lovers think of Studio Ghibli, the name Hayao Miyazaki immediately comes to mind. Fans embrace the imaginative writing and direction he’s brought to films like Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro and Princess Mononoke. However, Miyazaki isn’t the only director to have helped build the Ghibli name.
Hiroyuki Morita is the director who brought The Cat Returns to life. Just like most Studio Ghibli films, The Cat Returns sneaks in its fair share of parables and commentaries on the human condition, while simultaneously transporting us to a wacky and outlandish world. However, this one-note film is a little on the tame side when it comes to character depth and Ghibli oddities. While there are moments of chaos, this animated film has a more happy-go-lucky feel to it, much like big brother Totoro. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
The Cat Returns introduces us to Haru, »
