WWE Money in the Bank 2017 Review

19 June 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe reviews last night’s Money in the Bank PPV…

Money in the Bank 2017 is now in the history books and, well, it has certainly got people talking. The night was one full of controversy and some fans are even proclaiming it as one of the worst pay-per-views of all time. Smackdown did drop the ball somewhat last night, but does it really deserve to be mentioned in the worst of all time conversation? Here is my match by match breakdown of the card…

Carmella wins the Women’s Money in the Bank

The first ever Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match kicked off the night and it’s a match people won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

The in-ring side of things was fine. The women got a reasonable amount of time to do their thing and delivered some nice spots.  They kept things safe throughout the match, »

How the Alex Jones Debacle Has Exposed NBC’s $18 Million Megyn Kelly Problem

16 June 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Megyn Kelly is damaged goods, and it’s surprising that NBC News only now realizes it.

Here’s the problem: Kelly doesn’t quite have a place in these highly partisan times, and her early “gets” with Vladimir Putin and Alex Jones don’t change that. The Left is still disgusted over her race-baiting reports on Fox News over the years. (NewsOne has helpfully chosen her “10 most racist moments” here.) The Right now sees her as a traitor, heading to NBC in a bid to go mainstream.

NBC should have known this wouldn’t be easy, but instead of working on an image rehab, the network threw her to the wolves with Putin and Jones. Simply showing up at NBC and saying (wink-wink) now I can be a real journalist doesn’t make that baggage go away.

It ought to have been no surprise that re-entering the hornet’s nest might sting. »

The Bottom Shelf: Troll 2, Phantasm, The Entity

1 June 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick Aldwinckle Jun 5, 2017

We round up the latest horror-tinged Blu-ray and DVD releases....

So, after a brief hiatus, it turns out a lot’s happened in the few months between these round ups. A snap general election has been called, terror has struck at the heart of Manchester and a scandal approaching Watergate levels has hit the U.S presidency. More importantly, Troll 2 has finally come to UK Netflix and is the cherry on the cake made entirely of a series of kind of wonderful, kind of… not films on DVD and Bluray.

So, 1990’s Troll 2, you may or may not be aware of, is generally regarded as one of the very greatest 'so bad it’s good' movies. There are many worse (The Rollerblade Seven or Gary Oldman little person rom-com Tiptoes come to mind), though it’s difficult to think of many other truly awful movies »

"Twin Peaks," Episodes 3 & 4 Recap: Hell-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

30 May 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Twin Peaks Recap is a weekly column by Keith Uhlich covering David Lynch and Mark Frost's limited, 18-episode continuation of the Twin Peaks television series.What's an FBI Special Agent to do after being locked away for 25 years in unearthly purgatory? Episodes three and four of Mark Frost and David Lynch's revived Twin Peaks, which aired on Showtime this past Sunday in a two-hour block (aside from September's two-part finale, it's all single, hour-long episodes from hereon out), follow our besuited, Black Lodge-incarcerated hero Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) as he reintegrates into modern terrestrial society. So this is basically Peaks doing Rectify, just with a sterile death row replaced by an infernal hellscape out of Clive Barker. Or David Lynch, really. What's becoming more and more evident as the new Peaks progresses is that the series is, in large part, a repository for Lynch's subconscious, past and present. »

Cannes Awards: Controversial Swedish Satire ‘The Square’ Wins Palme d’Or

28 May 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — The 70th anniversary Cannes Film Festival has wrapped, culminating with an unconventional awards ceremony in which Pedro Almodóvar and his jury bestowed a couple unexpected bonus prizes, including a tie for screenplay and a special award to Nicole Kidman, who appeared in four projects in this year’s official selection, including competition titles “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” and “The Beguiled,” season two of “Top of the Lake” and special screening “How to Talk to Girls at Parties.”

Meanwhile, the fabled Palme d’Or went to Swedish director Ruben Östlund’s cutting art-world (and real-world) satire “The Square,” which dares to bring aspects of conceptual and performance art into the sphere of cinema. The choice came as something of a surprise, if only because the masterful, 142-minute film has divided audiences so far, and jury prizes rely on consensus.

‘Progress is painfully uneven’: Baltimore, 15 years after The Wire

27 May 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From its first episode in 2002, the HBO TV drama documented the poverty, politics and policing of a city. We visit its memorable locations and talk to the people trying to rebuild scarred communities

• See more of Jm Giordano’s photographs of Baltimore locations used in The Wire here

In black jacket, checked shirt and white trainers, eight-year-old D’Angelo Preston is riding his bike while his sister, Alicia, 11, gives chase. They are playing outside the Baltimore Montessori public charter school, where they would be pupils if they had the chance. “Their teachers don’t yell at them,” says Alicia matter-of-factly. “Their teachers let them do whatever they want.”

Alicia aims to be a maths teacher when she grows up; D’Angelo wants to be a professional football player. They live barely a minute’s walk from the Montessori school but, having lost an enrolment lottery, instead take a daily bus »

Over 20 Years Worth of Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick's Big City Love

24 May 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sarah Jessica Parker may be best known for her role as perennial city girl Carrie Bradshaw, but there's something else in her life that has stood the test of time: her marriage to fellow actor Matthew Broderick. Their love story reads like a Woody Allen movie: Sarah Jessica and Matthew met in 1991 after being introduced at a theater company by one of Sarah Jessica's brothers. They tied the knot in 1997 with a civil ceremony on Manhattan's Lower East Side - she famously wore a black wedding gown! - and have since become parents to son James Wilkie and twin daughters Tabitha and Loretta. They're not just one of Hollywood's longest-running celebrity couples, though - Matthew and Sjp are also widely recognized as famous figures in the Big Apple. They live in the West Village, champion important causes like arts education and music programs, and support the NYC Ballet and Unicef. »

French AIDS Crisis Gets Definitive Big Screen Treatment In ‘120 Beats Per Minute’ — Cannes 2017 Review

20 May 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It takes close to an hour before any backstories emerge for the ensemble cast of AIDS activists in “120 Beats Per Minute.” Before then, Robin Campillo’s engrossing drama lingers in heated strategy sessions and hectic activism, as the members of France’s early ‘90s Act Up movement toss fake blood at their targets in between arguments about the effectiveness of their tactics. Rather than attempting any big twists, Campillo lingers in this passionate world, sketching out the nature of their cause before filling in the details. The only real character arc is that sick people keep getting sicker.

This isn’t a characteristic project for Campillo, best known to English-language audiences for “They Live,” the film that inspired the “Twin Peaks”-like TV series “The Returned,” and “Eastern Boys,” a taut gay thriller in which Russian men posing as prostitutes rob an older man. “120 Beats Per Minute” contains no such far-reaching hooks, »

The Pros and Cons of Looking Back: Close-Up on John Carpenter’s "Christine" and "Starman"

14 May 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. John Carpenter's Christine (1983) is showing May 4 - June 3 and Starman (1984) is showing May 5 - June 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom.ChristineWas it too dark? Too bleak? Too gory? Did it have the misfortune of opening when American moviegoers were flocking to E.T.? Either way, when John Carpenter's The Thing landed in the summer of 1982, with an apocalyptic cliffhanger and the most surreally grotesque, tactile, gooey monster effects you never realized could be put on film, it fizzled. "It was hated," Carpenter later recalled at a screening in Los Angeles. "Hated by fans. I lost a job. People hated me. They thought I was this horrible, violent—" He trailed off and joked, "And I was." The audience laughed, because by now The Thing's exalted place in movie geek culture is secure: an exquisitely paranoid horror classic and arguably the crown »

Video Essay. John Carpenter: Master of Perspective

4 May 2017 5:16 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

John Carpenter's Christine (1983) is showing May 4 - June 3 and Starman (1984) is showing May 5 - June 4, 2017 in the United Kingdom.From the start, the disparity between John Carpenter’s tastes and his impulses as an artist were obvious to even those who loved him dearly. His breakout film, Halloween (1978), arguably the most replicated movie of all-time, was derided by one side of the taste divide for its players’ full-throated embrace of still-nascent horror archetypes—those whining babysitters and their slavishly puckish boyfriends!—and celebrated by the other for stylishly transcending its origins as an artless genre project. His remake of The Thing (1982) was attacked for placing special effects on the same level as classic suspense techniques, both of which, in Carpenter’s hands, were executed to perfection and denigrated accordingly. This duality in Carpenter’s work lead many, particularly as his career went on, to push back against his perceived inclination towards silliness. »

Movie Review – The Journey (2016)

4 May 2017 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Journey, 2016.

Directed by Nick Hamm.

Starring Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney, Toby Stephens, John Hurt and Freddie Highmore.

Synopsis:

In the middle of the Northern Ireland power sharing discussions of 2006, Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness find themselves sharing a car to the airport.  The two are sworn enemies, on a political and personal level, but on this journey they take a huge leap of faith and change the course of their country forever.

The death of Sinn Fein’s Martin McGuinness at the start of the year has given Nick Hamm’s The Journey a topicality it could never have expected.  But there’s a reference in the film that makes what we’re watching, and its historical background, even more relevant.  McGuinness (Colm Meaney) tells Paisley (Timothy Spall) to his face that, during The Troubles, he was the most popular politician in Europe – “and the most extreme. »

Great Job, Internet!: Why They Live will never die

19 April 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The election of Donald Trump to the presidency has lead to a cottage industry of think pieces evaluating science fiction and horror films anew for “the Trump era.” It’s the gift that keeps on giving, as the ideological lines and power structures people have been noting and satirizing for decades proceeded apace to create the monster that is a Trump presidency, so there is a seemingly bottomless pit of these pop culture artifacts to reevaluate. There’s something comforting about thinking the clues to our current clusterfuck all laid dormant in our pop culture for so long. If only we’d heeded the warnings of 1984, all of this could’ve been avoided!

Still, John Carpenter’s They Live is a uniquely resonant political statement today, as blunt and powerful as an atomic drop from star Rowdy Roddy Piper. A new video essay combines clips from the movies, archival ...

Gifted – Review

11 April 2017 10:17 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In just a couple of days the Summer blockbuster season will get a big jump-start (hey Spring’s not yet a month old) when those magnificent men (and women) in their flying “muscle-car” machines start spinning their wheels and defying gravity at the multiplex. As they rev their engines here’s a quiet little “heart-tugger’ about family and kids that stars a guy that usually helps usher in the big popcorn flicks as Marvel Studios’ patriotic powerhouse. Like many “swinging” singles from TV (“Family Affair”) and cinema (Raising Helen), he’s tackling unexpected parenthood after the tragic demise of the birth mother. And things get even more complicated, when (as in other recent films like Little Man Tate) the child is a genius, brainy, or as the title proclaims, Gifted.

 

Frank Adler (Chris Evans) is living a pretty good life in the southern “sunshine state” of Florida. He keeps busy »

Catfight review

11 April 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sandra Oh and Anne Heche beat the ever-loving crap out of each other in Onur Tukel's latest indie offering...

If you’ve only heard the briefest of things about Catfight, you’d be forgiven for imagining a sort of female version of The Fast Show’s ‘Long Big Punch Up’ and, to be fair, that wouldn’t be too far off the mark.

Turkish-American indie filmmaker Onur Tukel is back in the spotlight with this new outing, leaning into satire and away from his slightly more uncomfortable forays into horror-comedy.

While some of the director’s previous efforts, like Applesauce and Summer Of Blood, drew some extremely positive reviews, general audiences haven’t responded in kind so far, and he doesn’t make it easy for the mainstream to embrace him with Catfight, either. And you know what? Good. I may not have personally enjoyed a lot of Onur Tukel’s films, »
