Sliff 2017 Review – Tanna

Tanna will screen at Plaza Frontenac Cinema (Lindbergh Blvd. and Clayton Rd, Frontenac, Mo 63131) as part of this year’s St. Louis International Film Festival. Showings are Saturday, November 4th, at 12:05pm (purchase tickets Here) and Friday, November 10th, at 4:40pm (purchase tickets Here).

Tanna is a gripping tale of adventure and star-crossed love on a beautiful Pacific island. Based on a true story of the Yakel people and performed by them, this stirring, moving drama offers intriguing insights into the culture and history of these island people through a story of two people, a tale that has a little of both James Fenimore Cooper and Shakespeare.

Beautifully shot by co-director Bentley Dean, the script was written by co-director , Martin Butler and John Collee with the help of the Yakel. Visually stunning, Tanna immerses us in a lovely green natural setting, a Pacific Island paradise where the happy,

Preacher Season 2 Episode 13 Review – ‘The End of the Road’

Martin Carr reviews the season 2 finale of Preacher

Preacher has redeemed itself with a season closer brimming over with invention, heart wrenching emotion and caustic cultural reference. Meandering, concise, far-fetched and theologically challenging, Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy are back on point while Herr Starr is gloriously dry witted and indifferent. Whether choreographing fist fights to classic George Harrison or taking a side swipe at the fickle nature of celebrity, ‘Preacher’ retains a freshness and dramatic balance which bodes well for season three.

Joseph Gilgun takes centre stage fighting inner demons, carnal temptations and bloodlust whilst his son Dennis does nothing but quietly goad him on. These scenes combined with the slow motion knife fight ten minutes in, serve as our dramatic meat and potatoes for this episode. Sound effects play a major part in dialling down extraneous noise, drawing you into Cassidy’s consciousness and challenging our perspective. Deceptively simple

The Creepy Emmy Contenders of ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Legion,’ and ‘Westworld’

The Creepy Emmy Contenders of ‘Stranger Things,’ ‘Legion,’ and ‘Westworld’
Without “Game of Thrones” in Emmy contention, the VFX race has become wide open, with “Stranger Things,” “Legion,” “Westworld,” “American Gods,” and “Black Mirror” stepping up with creepy characters and supernatural situations.

Highlights include the Demogorgon creature from “Stranger Things,” the exploding kitchen from “Legion,” the final reveal of Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and all of her inner workings from “Westworld,” the incredible sex scene from “American Gods” with Bilquis, the Queen of Sheeba (Yetide Badaki), and the disgusting spider with a human head from the “Playtest” episode of “Black Mirror.”

Meet the Demogorgon from “Stranger Things

The cool thing about the Demogorgon from “Stranger Things” (directed by the Duffer Brothers) is it fits so well with the ’80s low-tech vibe. As the boogeyman from the Upside Down (named from “Dungeons & Dragons”), the creature represents a wonderful hybrid of practical and CG.

Shocking backstage WWE Aj Lee story, WWE star upset over Wrestlemania match

You might have noticed that despite running well over 19 hours, the Wrestlemania 33 broadcast never referred to the venue by its actual name – The Camping World Stadium. Which, admittedly, is a stupid name.

The most recent Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting the funniest ‘Vince-ism’ of Wrestlemania weekend, where McMahon decided the Camping World Stadium name couldn’t be used, so everyone referred to the site by its old name, The Citrus Bowl. For once, I’m actually on Vince’s side there.

Also according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, a six-man Cruiserweight match was scheduled for Wrestlemania, with the competitors even being present backstage, but they were told just hours before the event that they weren’t going to be used. It could be worse. They could’ve been put in the 87 man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal instead, and jobbed out in seconds.

You may be sad that Grimm‘s final season is half as long as its previous ones… but the supernatural series’ showrunners sure aren’t.

“There was a chance that we would have gotten 22 [episodes], and we were going, ‘Oh my God,'” James Kouf says, laughing. He and his fellow showrunner, David Greenwalt, are sitting on folding chairs just outside one of Grimm‘s main stages in Portland., Ore., taking advantage of a break in filming the NBC drama’s penultimate episode to chat with visiting reporters. “That’s a long trek,” Greenwalt adds. “We did that for five years.

3 Solutions to Indie Cinema’s Digital-Age Funk

3 Solutions to Indie Cinema’s Digital-Age Funk
Locarno — The challenges facing the world’s independent movie industry roll off the tongue like a well-known litany.

“While structurally things are at very different stages in various parts of the world, the bottom line is that it seems everybody across territories everywhere shares the same fears and issue,” said producer Ira Deutchman (“Matewan,” “Short Cuts”) about work sessions at Locarno think tank Step-In, which this year broadly focused on the U.S. and Canada, while addressing huge indie industry big-picture concerns.

He added: “If there was any frustration expressed by people taking notes it was not for a lack of conversation but lack of solutions.”

On Friday an initial Step-In panel at Locarno featured comments on North American market realities from the Toronto Fest’s Cameron Bailey, Telefilm Canada’s Carolle Brabant, Mongrel Media CEO Hussain Amarshi, and Emerging PicturesIra Deutchman.

Sam Kinison Box Set to Collect Shock Comic's Long Lost Specials
In 1989, Sam Kinison was riding high. As one of the most foul-mouthed funnymen to terrorize stages during the Golden Age of the Shock Comic, the hard-partying, beret-rocking dynamo was playing Madison Square Garden's Felt Forum and appearing on Married With Children and in Mötley Crüe's "Kickstart My Heart" video. (Rolling Stone also put him on the cover, dubbing him the "Beast of Comedy.") His gigs were part strip show, part heavy-metal concert, all primal-scream therapy.
