No Money, No Future: Two Documentaries By Jung Yoon-suk

  • MUBI
“The past is not just the past. It comes back again and again, it affects our time. If the present cannot be changed then the future threatens to be the same as the past.”—Jung Yoon-sukIn any other year, South Korean artist and filmmaker Jung Yoon-suk’s films could not have screened at the London Korean Film Festival, noted curator Tony Rayns as he introduced Jung’s films at the festival. Under the previous government, led by the now-imprisoned Park Geun-hye, Jung’s work—licentious and overtly political, even if the director wouldn’t describe it as such—would not have met the standards of that government’s officiators, whose notorious blacklist was alleged to contain nearly 10,000 names of artists whose work was deemed unfit for the state-controlled funding programs. It’s not clear how much influence that same government held over the activities of the UK’s

The Last Jedi Helmer Rian Johnson Weighs In On [Spoiler]’s Fate

If there’s one thing that defines the Star Wars community, it’s passion.

For more than 40 years, film fans have pored over Lucasfilm’s crown jewel and its extended universe – canon or not – to discuss Falcons, firearms and midi-chlorians, so it should come as no surprise that The Last Jedi has sent the Internet into a collective tailspin.

Since its North American debut on Friday, the Rian Johnson sequel has admittedly endured mixed fortunes, as the online backlash from fans has somewhat tainted The Last Jedi and its staggering box office performance. One thing we can tell you with absolute certainty is that Star Wars: The Last Jedi left us mulling over a lot of questions – questions that will likely continue to simmer until the release of Episode IX in 2019.

And after touching on Luke Skywalker’s contentious arc, Johnson spoke to Entertainment Weekly about another fan-favorite. Spoilers to follow!

Evangeline Lilly Hints At Wasp Flashback In Avengers 4

While the world waits for Avengers: Infinity War to arrive next May, the folks over at Marvel Studios are busy working on its equally highly-anticipated sequel, Avengers 4. Though the cast and crew have been careful to remain tight-lipped about it, the behind the scenes shots some have posted on social media have given us a few hints as to what we can expect.

The latest example is a photo shared by Evangeline Lilly. The actress posted a snap of herself after her working day as Hope Van Dyne Aka Wasp had wrapped. Innocent enough, right? On the surface, sure, but fans quickly noted that Lilly’s bob haircut in the photo was a close match for her look in 2015’s Ant-Man rather than the longer hair she’s been seen to sport in set photos from Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Ausiello: Well, that and a premiere date, am I right? Anyway, executive producer Julie Plec explains that while last season’s baddie — remember the Hollow? — will remain a present force in Season 5, the real enemy is far more complicated. “The Big Bad this year is launched from an ideology more so than one singular person’s nefarious desire,

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes

Oscar Fortunes Appear to Rise and Fall, but It’s Just the Golden Globes
Nominations for the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards are in as the 2017-2018 film awards season adds yet another notch to its belt. There were snubs, there were surprises, but nothing about Monday morning’s announcement would appear to have significantly altered the course of the circuit. Then again, nothing ever really does; these are just the opinions of a few dozen international journalists who happen to have their own highly rated, liquored-up, televised awards ceremony. Let’s dive in and take a look at what all of it actually means …

Star power

The HFPA has long been noted for its love affair with the stars. This year the group found ways to ensure that people like Angelina Jolie (“First They Killed My Father”), Steve Carell (“Battle of the Sexes”), Tom Hanks (“The Post”), Denzel Washington (“Roman J. Israel, Esq.”), Hugh Jackman (“The Greatest Showman”), Mary J. Blige (“Mudbound”), and even Mariah Carey and Nick Jonas (songs

Call of Duty World League Dallas Power Rankings

  • Cinelinx
It's been a wild start to the Call of Duty World League circuit! Hundreds filed into the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center, in Dallas, TX, on Friday expecting to see a ton of awesome Call of Duty WWII Pool Play, only to be disappointed by an unfounded bomb threat that would result in the tournament running behind schedule. Nevertheless, the teams didn't let that phase them as they came roaring back with some amazing Call of Duty gameplay. The result of these incredible games led us to rank teams, set for the elimination round, from least to most likely to win the first title of the long Call of Duty World League circuit!

Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds Is All But Ready For The Disney-Fox Deal

As much as the past fifteen years or so have proven to be an embarrassment of riches for geeks and casual moviegoers the world over, the fact remains that several dream meetings between superheroes have yet to occur on the big screen. And what’s doubly maddening is that many of those on fans’ wishlists involve Marvel characters.

You see, while Disney, Marvel’s parent company, lays claim to the cinematic rights to the wealth of their characters, there are numerous others – chief among them being those who reside under the X-Men and Fantastic Four umbrellas – that call Fox home. But, with Disney possibly purchasing Fox as soon as next week, a multitude of fan favorites could soon be integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Naturally, one such icon that would be directly impacted by this move is that of Deadpool. Perhaps bracing for the inevitable, Ryan Reynolds, the Merc with a Mouth himself,

Riverdale season 2 episode 8 review: House Of The Devil

Chris Cummins Dec 7, 2017

F.P. gets out of jail and Betty takes a walk on the wild side in an uneven outing of Riverdale. Spoilers ahead...

This review contains spoilers.

2.8 House Of The Devil

As it has been well established by this point,  this is a show where the improbable has become ordinary, and the sensible rarely exists at all. Like its spiritual precursor Twin Peaks, Riverdale will do whatever the hell it wants, and viewers can either hop aboard like Betty on the back of uneasy rider Jughead's motorcycle or tune out entirely. Obviously, we here at Den of Geek are all in, but that doesn't mean to say that the journey is always going to be a comfortable one. Which brings us to tonight's instalment, perhaps the most uneven episode to date.

Luther Season 5 To Film In January, Movie Still Being Discussed

Luther fans, rejoice! Idris Elba’s gruff detective will don that signature tweed coat once again for an “utterly heart-stopping and unmissable” four-part season, filming on which will kick off next month.

That’s right, Luther season 5 will head into production in January and it’ll herald John Luther’s first small-screen appearance since December of 2015. Granted, Elba has since reprised as the iconic sleuth, specifically for a Sport Relief sketch, but with the show’s co-creator and writer Neil Cross also on board, fans will no doubt be looking to this all-new fifth installment with bated breath.

“I delivered the final episode of Luther series five about an hour before leaving for the airport [to head to London for the Hard Sun premiere],” said Cross in a recent interview. “We’re in prep right now and we’re doing a bit of casting and we start shooting in January. For some reason, I always seem to shoot in the depths of winter.

Trump Accuser Natasha Stoynoff Wants Him to Face #MeToo Reckoning: 'Is Potus Held to Different Standard Than Louis Ck?'

Trump Accuser Natasha Stoynoff Wants Him to Face #MeToo Reckoning: 'Is Potus Held to Different Standard Than Louis Ck?'
In October 2016, People writer Natasha Stoynoff came forward to accuse then-candidate Donald Trump of attacking her in 2005 by pushing her up against a wall at his Mar-a-Lago estate and shoving his tongue down her throat.

Now, more than a year later, Stoynoff sees accusations of sexual misconduct toppling a long list of once-powerful men in high perches—from Hollywood’s entertainment industry to the news media to state governments—and asks: “Is the President of the United States held to a different standard than, say, Louis C.K.? Or will Trump too face a day of reckoning?”

Time will tell,” the writer,

Legends Of Tomorrow Featurette Says Farewell To A Legend

We were all expecting lots of action, fun and all-round comic book crossover goodness from this week’s four-part Arrowverse event “Crisis on Earth-x.” What we didn’t expect, though, was to end up an emotional wreck by the end of it. The crossover’s concluding installment, that came during Legends of Tomorrow, saw Dr. Martin Stein die sacrificing himself to save his friends.

In this new featurette that you’ll see up above, courtesy of The CW, Victor Garber reflects on his time as part of the DC universe and reveals his favourite parts of playing the superhero scientist.

“I’ve loved the whole experience of being in this genre, this world,” says Garber in the video, explaining that he wasn’t very familiar with DC before he played Stein. “[It’s] is something that I didn’t really know about, that I didn’t really understand.”

The Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Remade With Disney Characters Is Amazing

Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes are great and all, but what would an Avengers-style team-up movie be like if it featured a mash-up of Disney’s finest? Well, this new fan-edit of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer (seen below) imagines just that, as the teaser is remade beat for beat using clips from your favourite movies from the House of Mouse.

Apart from the clever swapping out of Infinity War scenes with their closest match in Disney movies, the fun in this trailer is seeing which cartoon characters replace the Avengers line-up. For instance, Tony Stark becomes Aladdin, Doctor Strange morphs into Genie, Scarlet Witch and Vision are now Lady and the Tramp, Thor is Hercules (natch), Peter Parker is Max Goof, Bucky Barnes is Peter Pan, and so on.

Perhaps the best match-ups, though, are the villains. Obviously, The Lion King‘s Scar takes the place of Loki, another trickster

Meghan Markle Takes Purse Cues From Queen Elizabeth! What’s Inside Their Handbags?

Queen Elizabeth is never seen without her trusty purse, and now her future granddaughter-in-law, Meghan Markle, seems to be following in her handbag-toting footsteps!

The monarch’s bag of choice is Launer London — and she has reportedly owned more than 200 Launer handbags over the years. The Queen’s loyalty to the brand began in 1968, when designer Sam Launer sent her a bag.

The Queen’s preferred bag style has a longer handle to ease the process of handshaking — a tip Meghan has seemed to notice as well.

Time will tell what Markel’s go-to purse brand will be, but for her first official royal appearance,

James Cameron has ‘Cracked the Code” on Underwater Mo-Cap System for ‘Avatar’ Sequels

James Cameron has always been at the forefront of technology when making a movie. From the groundbreaking effects in ‘Terminator 2: Judgement Day‘ to the invention of the motion capture technology used in the first ‘Avatar‘, Cameron always seems to be developing some new technology for his current project. Cameron’s output in the last decade of his career has pretty much been contained within the aforementioned ‘Avatar‘, as well as a few documentaries. But that doesn’t mean that James Cameron hasn’t been busy developing new technology in the meantime.

Since the release of ‘Avatar’ in late 2009 (hard to believe that was almost 8 years ago) Cameron has been busy developing the technology (and story) to build out the ‘Avatar‘ universe in interesting and unique ways. It was reported back in 2010 that the sequels would take place largely in an underwater environment, but is seems that, according to James Cameron,

‘Lady Bird’ Named Best Picture by New York Film Critics Circle

‘Lady Bird’ Named Best Picture by New York Film Critics Circle
With its annual cinema superlatives vote Thursday morning, the New York Film Critics Circle made a handful of historical choices. “Call Me by Your Name” star Timothée Chalamet became the youngest winner of the group’s best actor prize, while “Mudbound” Dp Rachel Morrison became the first woman to win the cinematography award (perhaps on her way to making further history as the first-ever female Oscar nominee in the category).

But with bold selections like Tiffany Haddish, who was named best supporting actress for her uproarious performance in “Girls Trip,” the Nyfcc could make an overall impact on the Oscar race as well: Any campaign Universal Pictures may have been idly planning for the actress just picked up considerable ammunition.

Only two films landed multiple honors, and both ought to make distributor A24 happy: “The Florida Project” claimed best supporting actor for Willem Dafoe and best director for Sean Baker, while “[link

New York Film Critic Circle's Best of 2017

by Nathaniel R

Founded in 1935 the New York Film Critics Circle remains one of the two most important film critics organizations in the country (the other being the Los Angeles Film Critics Association). They might not have the influencing power they once had when there weren't 30+ similar organizations but people still hear them out each year before the "critics named this the best" accolades start sounding like ambient noise. Last year they were heavy on Oscar frontrunners or presumed runners up in virtually every single category. Will their winners be such Oscar favorites this year. Time will tell.

It was quite a day for A24 with two of their films being the only multiple winners: Lady Bird (Best Picture and Best Actress) and The Florida Project (Best Director and Best Supporting Actor).  Complete list of winners including interesting statistics follow after the jump...

Star Wars: Daisy Ridley reckons Episode IX will be her last

John Saavedra Nov 30, 2017

In a new interview, Daisy Ridley reveals that she doesn't have plans to play Rey beyond the Sequel Trilogy.

Star Wars Episode IX might mark the end of Rey's story, if a new Rolling Stone interview with Daisy Ridley is any indication. The actress expressed in her chat with the magazine that she may be headed for the exit after the final installment in the Sequel Trilogy concludes.

"I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films," said Ridley. "So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out."

Ridley won't close the door completely on more Star Wars after the Sequel Trilogy is done. She said that she could be game to come back down the line after a

Rey To The Dark Side? Daisy Ridley Addresses The Last Jedi’s Biggest Rumor

It’s the one Star Wars-related rumor that refuses to relent.

Having made her big break in The Force Awakens two years ago, Rey has become the face of Lucasfilm’s current trilogy, and though Daisy Ridley’s Jakku orphan was introduced as a straight-laced heroine – one with a peculiar connection to the Force, mind you – there have been rumblings that The Last Jedi will signal a change of heart in Luke’s newfound apprentice.

Those rumors can be traced back to the sequel’s full-length trailer, which ended with Rey uttering the much-debated line: “I need someone to show me my place in all this.” Talk about fanning the flames of speculation.

And though she refrained from divulging too much, Daisy Ridley recently appeared on Good Morning America (via ComicBook.com) to discuss all things Star Wars, and Rey’s role in the ever-changing universe.

Review: The Walking Dead – Season 8 – Episode 4: “Some Guy”

“I ain’t no King. I ain’t nothing. I’m just some guy.”

Since his introduction last season Khary Payton’s King Ezekiel has been one of the most compelling characters on the show. His dual persona – charismatic King from another time and humble every-man – has always been entertaining to watch, partly thanks to Payton’s brilliant performance of the character, and this week’s episode explores the idea of Ezekiel’s identities competing further.

The episode opens with an intimate sequence focused on Ezekiel as a he prepares himself for the mission that unraveled (and is still unravelling) in the previous instalment. He washes himself, prepares those mighty-fine dreads of his and assembles his combat outfit before delivering yet another speech – we’re in at least one-per-episode territory now – but it’s, as ever, a charming performance from Payton.

A clever match cut takes us from Ezekiel being
