Wild Card DVD Review

24 July 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Simon West

Starring: Jason Statham, Sofia Vergara, Stanley Tucci, Milo Ventimiglia, Michael Angarano, Dominik Garcia-Lorido, Anne Heche, Hope Davis, Max Casella

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 92 minutes

Special Features: Original Sin – Las Vegas and the Characters of Wild Card / The Script / The Stunts

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, »

Three's Not a Crowd: Film's 5 best on-screen trios

8 July 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

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, »

Great Movies With Questionable Trailers

28 June 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

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 »

Laurie Metcalf to Play Annie Wilkes in Broadway Version of Stephen King’s Misery

23 June 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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. »

Celebrating Columbo's best star turns

16 June 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shatner, Nimoy, Dunaway, Johnny Cash and more. We take a look at some of TV detective show Columbo’s killer cameos...

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 »

‘The Cat Returns’ is a fun ride in HD

15 June 2015 8:35 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

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.

Life Moves Pretty Fast by Hadley Freeman review

3 June 2015 5:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The lessons we learned from 80s movies are dissected by Hadley Freeman in her new book. Here's our review...

One of my favourite movie websites is The Shiznit. If you've never had the pleasure, do check it out. What I like about it is it's a site that has a habit of asking the question I wanted to ask, but in about half the word count. Were he around today, I'm quietly confident that George Orwell would follow The Shiznit on Twitter.

The reason I bring the site up here - and thus prove my point about my own wordiness - is a question they asked Edgar Wright when on the junket trail for The World's End. For they cut straight to the nub of it: what's the film about, and then, what's it really about?

On the surface, Hadley Freeman's new book, Life Moves Pretty Fast, is her love »

Hadley Freeman interview: 80s movies, Eddie Murphy, Lucas

3 June 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Heathers, John Hughes, Back To The Future, Nora Ephron, Coming To America and more, as we chat 80s movies with Hadley Freeman...

Hadley Freeman's latest book has harnessed her love of 80s movies, and gone into detail about just why they work so well. Entitled Life Moves Pretty Fast, you won't be surprised to hear that Ferris Bueller's Day Off features in there. But then so does Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, Ghostbusters, Back To The Future and Eddie Murphy.

So what makes 80s movies so special? That seemed a logical place to start, as we caught up with Hadley for a chat...

Can I start by throwing a paraphrased movie quote at you? That line in The Truman Show about accepting the reality with which we're presented? At what point did you come to accept and realise that the movies of the 80s were so special to you? As you grew up with them, »

Film Review: ‘Deep Web’

1 June 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Equal parts eye-opening backgrounder, cautionary chronicle and impassioned plea for the defense, “Deep Web” begins as an illuminating overview of the Internet’s non-indexed digital substratum, then narrows its focus to recount the arrest, prosecution and conviction of Ross Ulbricht, alleged originator and supervisor of the notorious Silk Road online bazaar. Even after touring several fests and airing on the Epix cable network, this latest cyber-centric effort by actor-turned-documentarian Alex Winter (“Downloaded”) could attract audiences in limited theatrical and noncommercial release, especially after the May 29 issuing of a life sentence for Ulbricht in a Manhattan federal court.

Winter shrewdly begins his slickly produced movie with a primer for those who tuned in late, explaining how groups ranging from banks and government personnel to cyberpunks and hacktivists operate undetected on the deep web, that vast area of the internet where search engines never roam. Various interviewees — including journalist Andy Greenberg, whose »

Deep Web Review: Alex Winter’s Documentary Takes Viewers Down The Silk Road

30 May 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Here’s what you need to know to understand where Alex Winter’s documentary Deep Web begins. When you browse the internet and use search engines to find content, you’re engaging in the “surface web.” Whenever you put in a password to log in to a protected website or webpage (your email client, online banking, protected corporate or government sites), you are accessing the “dark web.” If you are going totally off the grid to find sites that are completely anonymous except through the use of special software, then you are on the “deep web.” The most famous example of the deep web is The Silk Road, an online marketplace for drugs and other illegal items that launched in 2011. Its name became part of the national conversation after a raid by the FBI appeared to have uncovered its leader — an administrator going by the name “Dread Pirate Roberts” (from »

Review: Deep Web, Where David And Goliath Battle For Privacy

28 May 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The 21st century is a foreign country. If you had asked someone in 1989 what the charming fantasy adventure The Princess Bride, and slacker time travel history lesson, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure had in common, you would likely have gotten a decidedly different answer than the following: A documentary on the David vs. Goliath legal battle over the nature of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution by radical crypto-libertarians running a black-market whose goal to free commerce from big government resulted in one of the largest illegal drug bazaars the world has ever seen. This is the stuff of a Neil Stephenson science fiction novel (title suggestion: "Cypherpunk"). Here is where we are.Director Alex Winter, once the actor who played Bill S. Preston (Esquire), has been...

100 Essential Action Scenes: Swordfights

27 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Sword fights, like one-on-one fights, target the emotion and power of each individual fighter, but are amplified by the extension of their weapon. Whereas one-on-one fights test the might and bronze of our competitors, sword fights add an extra element of intelligence and skill. A fighter can scrape by through luck in a brawl of fists, but a sword (and knife) fight exposes the true strengths and weaknesses of its opponents.

Ten Weddings and No Funerals: The Greatest Cinematic Nuptials

18 May 2015 5:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

There are few rituals in life more chaotic, confounding and magical than the wedding. Appropriately, marriages have provided the backdrop for many a story spun through the ages. Whether it’s sending out multitudes of wedding invitations, choosing the right dress, or whether to seat Aunt Mabel next to her second or fifth ex-husband at the reception, weddings both in life and on film are almost always guaranteed to bring forth a surge of emotions. Below are a few of our favorite cinematic nuptials:

1. The Searchers (1956)

John Ford’s western masterpiece is full of many iconic moments, not the least of which is one of the screen’s greatest knock-down, drag-out fights between Jeffrey Hunter and Ken Curtis for the hand of comely Vera Miles. Martin Scorsese loved this scene so much, he paid homage by having his characters watch it in Mean Streets (1973).

2. Rachel Getting Married »

Cannes 2015. Day 1

14 May 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

While I cannot say the festival has started for me with the searing acuteness found day one in Cannes last year with Timbuktu, with Hirokazu Kore-eda's Our Little Sister the tone of my first full day on the Croisette instead began with the Japanese director's particular sensibility of refined, humane warmth and a complete absence of desire to impress.A wonderful concept  centers this picture and called back to me small memories of a Mikio Naruse film I loved long ago, Older Brother, Younger Sister (speaking now of Japanese masters, Our Little Sister also contains a poignant reference to Ozu's The End of Summer). Three single women, not young but also not middle-aged, sisters from their father's first of three marriages, adopt their teenage half-sister after his death strands her between his first and last broken family. So we get a kind of enclave or community of sisterhood, discreet, »

Cannes Review: Matteo Garrone's 'Tale of Tales' is the Wackiest Fairy Tale Movie Ever

13 May 2015 6:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Cannes: Matteo Garrone's 'Tale of Tales' Review and Roundup Monty Python by way of Tim Burton and "The Princess Bride," Italian director Matteo Garrone's first English language feature "Tale of Tales" is a nutty compendium of outrageous fairy tales unfolding within the constraints of a single unseemly kingdom. Although wobbly in parts like so many cinematic anthologies, Garrone's alternately silly and entrancing adaptation of Giambattista Basile's Neapolitan stories provides a welcome gothic antidote to more stately treatments of similar material. Garrone's bizarre narrative incorporates four overlapping stories in a kingdom filled with the usual ensemble of mythological beasts, magical powers and royal schemes. While every sequence goes to certain outrageous extremes — plot twists include the consumption of a giant sea monster's heart and the nurturing of a dog-sized flea — Garrone cuts between them with a fluid approach that successfully conveys the »
