Get Ready for “My New Sassy Girl”!

25 March 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

If we are to talk about the ever-growing Hallyu wave—the rapidly spreading popularity of South Korean culture—we can never leave out “My Sassy Girl.” While many South Korean films have been screened in different parts of the world years before “My Sassy Girl” was produced, no one can deny that it is one the first Korean films to get undisputable global recognition. It got nominations and awards from various national and international award-giving bodies for three years in a row, its theme song was translated to different languages, and it spurred American and Japanese remakes.

Not only did it bring South Korea into the limelight, but it also catapulted its main stars, namely Tae Hyun Cha and Ji Hyun Jeon, to worldwide fame. And this year, a sequel to the much beloved movie is coming!

Steven Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen | Epic (final) Fantasy Mic Drop

23 March 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I remember reading a book, the first book I’d ever review online, called Meditations on Middle on Earth, which was collection of essays from the who’s who cast of  fantasy authors reflecting on The Lord of the Rings. When they read it, where they were, how it influenced them. Among them was Robin Hobb, who’d I also later interview, and she posed a question in her essay that was something to the effect of the thought of why even try (to write) something that has already been done at that level? I find myself, from the fan’s perspective, in a similar place. As a life long fan of epic fantasy, this guy, one Steven Erikson… he’s done it.

When I finished reading Steven Erikson’s The Crippled God I was hit with asoiafitis, that truly magical yearning of just having to go talk about what you just experienced. »

One Big Happy Review – TV NBC

16 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

One Big Happy, NBC‘s latest sit-com effort, is set to have a great premiere just off the back of promotion by executive producer Ellen Degeneres. The real question is whether or not people are going to come back, and if it can expand its market beyond the viewers who are dedicated Ellen fans.

One of the best indicators of its success (or lack thereof) may be its lead-in, Undateable. The shows are well-paired, with not only much in common, but a similar comedic style. They are also shows that aren’t exactly the kind of efforts that will shoot out of the gates. They need to grow on you a bit before you come around to appreciating what a blast they are. That’s a tough road in today’s world, as Undateable fans can attest, since it wasn’t a sure thing it would be returning for a while. »

Watch the trailer for Community Season 6

3 March 2015 1:23 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems almost impossible that Community is set to debut its sixth season next month. Over its tenure, the show has dealt with internal bust-ups, sackings, re-hirings (creator Dan Harmon returning for season 5), cast members departing and some particularly low viewing figures compared to other high-profile shows. And, who can forget, being cancelled by NBC last year.

But, despite all of that and its somewhat inevitable cancellation, Community lives on thanks to Yahoo!, and have revealed the first full trailer for the new season. Yahoo! Screen, who purchased the rights to the show, are set to air the new season on March 17th, with it’s UK bow set for 24 hours later.

Despite some of the original cast leaving for different reasons (Chevy Chase was sacked after season 4, Donald Glover left for his own show just after season 5 had started, and Yvette Nicole Brown left before season 6 began to take »

In Eastern Boys, an Immigrant's Turbulent Life in Paris

24 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

The eastern boys of French-Moroccan director Robin Campillo's beautifully acted new film are a gang of undocumented East Europeans headed by a gorgeous, cruel Boss (Danil Vorobyev). They live together in a shabby suburban hotel and go into Paris each day to earn or con the money to survive. The most sensitive and intriguing of the boys, Marek (Kirill Emelyanov), is Ukrainian and delicate, aloof. Daniel (Olivier Rabourdin), a bourgeois Parisian, cruises Marek at a train station and invites him back to his swank, modern flat. In doing so, Daniel accidentally involves himself in the gang's messy violence. Later, Marek lets the older man fuck his limp, languid body for money; the two fall into a strange, unnerving relationship; lonely Daniel tries both to date and to paren »

Take a Peek Inside London's Buckingham Palace—See Where the Royals Party and Dine!

24 February 2015 2:04 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

A king and queen don't live in a house. They live in a palace. And on the new series The Royals, which is centered on a fictional, modern-day British monarchy led by Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley) and King Simon (Vincent Regan), the royals live in a lavish palace along with their two children, Prince Liam (William Moseley) and Princess Eleanor (Alexandra Park). Surrounded by acres of land and dozens of servants to tend to their every need, this is certainly one family that knows how to live in style. But what about the real-life royals? As it turns out, they're living extremely well too. Buckingham Palace has been the official London residence for royalty since 1837, which means that Queen Elizabeth, Prince »

DVD Review – Serena (2014)

23 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Serena, 2014.

Directed by Susanne Bier.

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Rhys Ifans and Sean Harris.

Synopsis:

In Depression-era North Carolina, the future of a timber empire becomes increasingly complicated when its owner marries.

What a strange Serena Williams biopic this is. There’s practically no tennis.

In its place are breathtaking panoramic shots of the Smoky Mountains. They live up to their name; there’s smoke everywhere. It creeps up hillsides, engulfing trees and wildlife without discrimination. There’s a metaphor in there somewhere: losing sight of your original intention, getting pulled under by the personal, how unedited versions of these landscapes should be uploaded as desktop wallpapers – they are truly majestic, for which cinematographer Morten Søborg deserves considerable credit.

It’s just a shame the rest of the film gets in the way.

Serena is an overwrought, poorly structured melodrama that works against its characters’ relationships. Individually, the players »

Glasgow 2015: 'Catch Me Daddy' review

22 February 2015 8:23 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ If Clio Barnard's The Selfish Giant (2013) was a fairytale set in 'It's grim up north' territory, this year's Glasgow Film Festival offers up a Yorkshire western in Daniel Wolfe's bleak, windswept thriller Catch Me Daddy (2014), which unexpectedly broods over the multicultural integration of northern Britain. British-Pakistani Laila, played with conviction by non-professional actress Sameena Jabeen Ahmed, and Aaron (Canor McCarron), are two teenagers in hiding. They live in a trailer park out of town, arguing about whether they can go out at night. Laila wants to meet her mate from work at a local nightclub, but Aaron barks urgently at her not to because it's too dangerous. He's right to be worried.

Exclusive Q&A with Alex and Theo from In Case Of Emergency Cabinets

13 February 2015 5:17 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Equipment to get your heart going again, put fires out, sterilize an open wound—those are the emergency items you usually see in sealed-off cabinets hanging in public places, but as helpful as defibrillators and first aid kits are in everyday life, you'd want more effective weapons at hand if a slavering werewolf from The Howling aimed its snout at your thigh, or if Fred Dekker's zombies from Night of the Creeps came calling for you as their delectable date.

That's where the fine folks from In Case Of come in. Their unique, hand-crafted, sealed emergency cabinets offer protection against zombies, vampires, werewolves, and demons. Though the weapons within their cabinets aren't real, they have a beautiful and realistic look that compliments the well-researched mythologies behind each item. To celebrate the hallowed day of horror that is Friday the 13th (and to give our readers a possible Friday the 13th »

Berlin: Larrain’s Competition Pic ‘Club’ Inks Pacts for France and U.K.

7 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the run-up to its world premiere Feb. 9 in Berlin, Paris-based Funny Balloons has closed two key major territories — France (Wild Bunch Distribution) and the U.K. (Network Releasing) — on Berlin competition player “The Club,” directed by Chile’s Pablo Larrain (“No,” “Tony Manero”).

Described by Funny BalloonsPeter Danner as “a powerful drama with the tension of a thriller,” and shot under the radar in Chile, “The Club” turns on four men who live together in a secluded house in a small, seaside town. Each of them has been sent to this place to purge sins from the past. They live according to a strict regime under the watchful eye of a female caretaker, when the fragile stability of their routine is disrupted by the arrival of a fifth man, a newly disgraced companion.

Lending “The Club” immediate social point, the five men are priests.

‘Cry for Cindy / Touch Me / Act of Confession’ Review (Vinegar Syndrome)

6 February 2015 2:14 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Cry For Cindy

(dir: Anthony Spinelli, 1976)

“Which is the real Cindy?”

Amber Hunt (Long Jeanne Silver, Sexworld) stars as Anna and she’s cute as a button in that almost strange sort of way. She’s a humble hairdresser who spends her free time with her boyfriend Dennis, played by Spencer Travis (Big Split). Things are going Ok, but when Nora and Yvonne, a couple of Anna’s clients played by Mitzi Fraser and Maryanne Fisher (in their only starring roles) give her an offer of becoming one of their high class prostitutes, she realises that her financial situation could be better so she reluctantly agrees and begins her new life as Cindy. It goes well at first, but of course it causes tension between herself and Dennis. This leads Anna to making the decision of ending the relationship for the better. Understandably broken, Dennis tracks her down and finds »

John Carpenter's Deep Cuts

5 February 2015 10:33 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Writing on John Carpenter’s cinema usually adheres to a few safe subjects: his pulsating synth scores, his ingenious use of negative space, his signature 2.35:1 frame, (specious) comparisons to Howard Hawks, etc. Ideally, his oeuvre is ripe for analysis, so formally and tonally consistent is his cinema, so rigorous the progression of his favorite themes and subjects. Phases begin and end, roughly. Experiments can be recognized, one-offs noted, dozens of through lines traced. And yet Carpenter, among the most coherent of filmmakers in a variety of contexts, is seldom subject to thoughtful criticism, and if so, is largely marginalized to a handful of admittedly excellent but overly-canonized and under-representative works.

If clung to for bruising, relentless films like Halloween (1978), The Thing (1982), Assault on Precinct 13 (1976), Prince of Darkness, and They Live (1988), Carpenter comes off rather severe, even despairing. One cannot deny this element in his work, a powerful vein »

USA Picks Up Carlton Cuse’s ‘Colony’ to Series, Starring Josh Holloway

3 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network is making a series commitment to “Colony,” ordering 10 episodes of the thriller.

Colony,” which stars Josh Holloway (“Lost”) and Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”), is executive produced by Carlton Cuse (“Bates Motel,” “The Strain”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”). A co-production between Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, it will shoot in Los Angeles.

Set in the near future, “Colony” centers on a family — headed up by Holloway and Callies — who must make difficult decisions as they balance staying together with trying to survive. They live in L.A., which has been occupied by a force of outside intruders. While some people have chosen to collaborate with the authorities and benefit from the new order, others have rebelled — and suffer the consequences.

“Carlton and Ryan have created an intriguing ride that uniquely provides a humanistic take on a story set in the near future,” said USA president Chris McCumber. »
