Starburst Festival 2018: ‘Your Flesh Your Curse’ Review

Stars: Marie-Louise Damgaard Nielsen, Rose Milling, Louise Gammelgaard, Bill Hutchens, Kim Sønderholm, Frederik Carlsen, Emma Nymann, Paw Terndrup | Written and Directed by Kasper Juhl

When young drug addict Juliet White dies, she doesn’t find herself in hell but somewhere far worse. Forced to relive the traumas and abuse of her days on earth, guided by a mysterious masked figure, Juliet must not only endure but find something new in her suffering.

Take the characters and general milieu from Shane Ryan’s My Name is A by Anonymous, throw in some psychosexual imagery and general sleaze as seen in the likes of Dustin Mills’ work, then mix in a melancholic, melodramatic soundtrack and declare yourself as the next Lars Von Trier and you have Your Flesh Your Curse - a film that spends its entire runtime trying to tell the audience that womens “flesh” is their curse. As in because

Happy Death Day 2 Begins Shooting This Summer?

It looks like Blumhouse Productions is wasting no time in getting Happy Death Day 2 going. The horror version of Groundhog Day opened in theaters last year and wound up being another hit for the studio that actually did surprisingly well with critics and fans as well. That being the case, a sequel has been being developed behind-the-scenes and it looks like it's actually coming together rather quickly, as it now appears the movie will begin filming this May, based on a new report.

Happy Death Day 2 hasn't been officially announced yet, but we know it's happening. The folks at Geek Vibes Nation recently reported, via a post to their Twitter account, that the sequel will begin filming on May 12, in New Orleans. Since this isn't officially coming from the studio, it should be regarded as rumor for now. However, star Jessica Rothe has discussed plans for a sequel previously, so

2018 Olivier Awards nominations: ‘Hamilton’ lands record 13, ‘The Ferryman’ leads among plays with 8

2018 Olivier Awards nominations: ‘Hamilton’ lands record 13, ‘The Ferryman’ leads among plays with 8
Two years after sweeping the Tony Awards, Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s musical “Hamilton” is poised to do the same at the British equivalent, the Olivier Awards. On March 6, it reaped a record 13 bids for these top theater prizes, shattering the record set by the musical “Hairspray” in 2008 and equalled by the play “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” last year. On the play side, the leading contender is Jez Butterworth‘s “The Ferryman,” a dark drama about the Irish troubles which is set to come to Broadway in the fall.

Winners will be announced in a ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall on April 8 hosted by Catherine Tate. Unlike the Tony Awards, which are showcased live on CBS, the Olivier Awards get only a clips package on ITV later that evening and a live feed on BBC Radio 2.

Guardians Director Confirms Yet Again That Baby Groot Is Groot's Son

Guardians Director Confirms Yet Again That Baby Groot Is Groot's Son
It turns out Baby Groot is actually Groot's son. At the end of the first Guardians of the Galaxy, Groot heroically sacrificed himself in order to save the rest of the team. It was a beautiful moment, but one that resulted in the talking tree giving his life. Rocket saved a twig of Groot and planted the root, which resulted in the character we now know as Baby Groot. While it's been clear for some time that this isn't the same Groot, James Gunn reveals once again that Baby Groot is the original Groot's son. And he's telling you for the last time!

James Gunn, who directed both Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, regularly engages with fans on social media and is happy to answer questions. Gunn was pulled into a debate on Twitter that had to do with pitting Baby Groot against Porgs,

Copyright law failed me in Groundhog Day case | Letters

The heartbreak is not that I didn’t get money but that I didn’t get credit after the 1993 film used the same idea as my 1981 novel One Fine Day, writes Leon Arden

Re your article on cases of plagiarism in Hollywood (Haven’t we seen it all before?, G2, 23 February), Groundhog Day didn’t rip off my screenplay but my 1981 novel One Fine Day. And in dismissing my complaint Judge Chin, in Arden v Columbia Pictures (7 December 1995), said: “I appreciate [Mr Arden’s] frustration at seeing his idea of a man trapped in a repeating day used without his consent, in a movie that grossed more than $70 million, not one cent of which he has received. Again, however, ideas are not copyrightable…”

The heartbreak is not that I didn’t get money but that I didn’t get credit. The problem is that copyright laws are not yet sophisticated enough to differentiate

What Is TV's Best Time Loop Ep? Too Many Big Brother Quitters? 'Despacito' Overdone at Olympics? And More Qs

What Is TV's Best Time Loop Ep? Too Many Big Brother Quitters? 'Despacito' Overdone at Olympics? And More Qs
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Last Week Tonight, Counterpart, America’s Next Top Model and Nashville!

But first, a special Olympics section:

Film Review: ‘Every Day’

Film Review: ‘Every Day’
When it comes to romantic matchups, Hollywood has never been particularly shy about pairing a conventional human being with a fluky, not-of-this-earth partner: a mermaid, a superhero, King Kong, or Zach Galifianakis. But “Every Day,” an adaptation of David Levithan’s 2012 young-adult novel, marks a surprisingly original entry in the genre of fanciful mismatched love story.

The film’s heroine, Rhiannon (Angourie Rice), is an effervescent, tuned-in, and utterly normal teenager growing up in a woodsy suburb of Baltimore. The character she falls head over heels for is…a spirit. One who takes over the mind and body of a different local teenager every day, until the clock strikes midnight, at which point the spirit moves on to somebody else. The spirit, whose name is A., can occupy a boy or a girl, of any shape, size, or ethnicity, but he/she is always kind, thoughtful, sharp, funny, observant, and compassionate. Kind of like

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 11 Review – ‘Here I Go Again’

Jessie Robertson reviews the eleventh episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3…

Welcome to Legends’ version of “Groundhog Day”, or “Hedgehog Day” as Zari puts it. As Zari is working on the ship, a glitch occurs with Gideon which throws her whole day into an infinite loop. So, Zari learns secrets about her crewmates, tries on their outfits and learns violin. Huh?

As the crew just gets back from stopping Napoleon in the disco era (which looks like an amazing episode in its own right) Zari tries to explain what’s going on; the whole episode is a bit of a dissection on how Zari actually fits within the framework of the show, which quite frankly, isn’t well. Besides being a cultural and ethnic significance, she hasn’t brought much more to the table. Ray likes her, but Ray likes everyone. Nate seems annoyed by her, but he

Legends of Tomorrow: Zari Stuck in Time Loop. Rip Finds Kid Flash.

It’s Groundhog Day on tonight’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow. Zari finds herself stuck in a time loop where the Waverider explodes every hour. Therefore, making her relive the same moments over and over again. Where’s Bill Murray when you need him? I like the overall premise of this episode. Zari often feels like she’s not an actual member of Team Legends and this time loop/Groundhog Day effect is the thing she needs to open her eyes to the truth. That and the shocking twist at the end of the hour almost made me fall out of my seat. It

Legends Of Tomorrow channels “Hedgehog Day” for an excellent time loop story

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow knows that it’s kind of hacky to do a Groundhog Day-inspired time loop episode, but as Nate tells Zari, it all comes down to execution. And this episode is damn good. Writers Ray Utarnachitt and Morgan Faust turn Zari’s repetitive journey through the same catastrophic hour into a story that…

3.11 Here I Go Again

I spent a lot more time complaining last week than was warranted. Despite the episode highlighting a weakness, it was still fun to watch and great to have back.

There's no such problem this week. Here I Go Again, Tala Ashe's Groundhog Day-but-for-Zari feature, was a delight at every second. The entire episode hinged on Tala Ashe's performance, and she nailed it. We talked to Ashe last week, and it sounded from the interiew like she was relishing the chance to jump in the spotlight. Having watched the episode, it seems like the writers were looking forward to it, too.

Legends is a funny show.

Legends Recap: Is It Too Late Now to Save Zari? Plus, [Spoiler] Shows Up!
Legends of Tomorrow‘s Zari this week learned some important lessons — though she perhaps wasn’t thrilled with the manner of instruction.

Upon the team’s return from a disco-themed mission that we sadly didn’t get to see, Sara railed at Zari for frying Gideon, by trying to run a high-powered simulation program that would seek out any “time loopholes” that might allow her to save her brother. After getting chewed out by the captain, Zari went to fix the ship, only to be interrupted by an explosion that blew the Waverider to bits… and then plopped Zari back on the bridge,

Legends of Tomorrow’s Zari Opens Up About Groundhog Day Episode

Legends of Tomorrow‘s Zari is in big trouble. In “Here I Go Again,” tonight’s episode, the hacktivist will find herself caught in a time loop that always ends the same way: with the Waverider’s explosion. To escape the time loop and prevent this catastrophe, Zari will use her Groundhog Day-like scenario to investigate her teammates’ secrets, which may hold the key to their salvation. In the process, she’ll start to learn her place on the team — and perhaps even open herself up to them.

Streaming: is the future Filmstruck?

The Us streaming service, newly arrived in the UK, offers a collection of classic movies that could prove irresistible

As much as the worlds of streaming and film archiving would appear to be mutually supportive, the internet hasn’t thus far been the most fruitful of resources for fans of classic cinema. Netflix, far from the all-encompassing grab bag it’s often billed as, is steadily narrowing its outside film library as its original content production becomes a budget-eating industry in itself. The company’s thin, ill-ordered “classics” division grants golden-oldie status to Pulp Fiction and Groundhog Day, masking its relative dearth of pre-1960 titles.

More specialised platforms such as the BFI Player and the rolling, curated menu of Mubi offer more rarefied options, but are by nature idiosyncratically selective. Even Amazon Prime might not help you if you have an immediate yen for an old Hollywood standard such as The Big Sleep.

The Legends Of Tomorrow Go The Way Of Pirates In New Images

After bearing witness to a memorable visit made to the Waverider by one John Constantine, the time has come to begin looking forward to whatever Legends of Tomorrow may bring us next. Now, you may be thinking we’re about to discuss next week’s episode that’ll see the team get stuck in a time loop Groundhog Day-style, but, believe it or not, we’re actually going to talk about what’s to follow.

As you may recall, this past Monday night’s midseason premiere hinted that uniting six totems may very well be the key to stopping Mallus. So far, two of them are on board the Waverider, safely in the possession of Vixen and Zari, but another, the Water Totem, is currently held by Kuasa. Truth be told, we’re wondering how they’re going to collect the Fire Totem because that was destroyed in the Vixen web series/animated movie,

Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology Review

JRPGs are caught in a perpetual tug-of-war between an irrational mainstream stigma and a dedicated fanbase that’s perhaps too attached to tradition. You could ask five different gamers for their opinion of a particular Jrpg and get six different answers. So I went in to Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology with totally middle-of-the-road expectations, despite the generally positive reception to its original 2011 DS release. At first it seemed to be meeting those expectations exactly, with a straightforward battle system, passable script, and unexpected Chrono Trigger influences. But as the game’s full breadth began to unfold, it felt less like a Chrono Trigger imitator and more like a successor, which may just be the highest compliment available to the genre.

Perhaps that label applies simply because there are no other contenders for it. The universe itself seems to have declared Chrono Trigger a once-in-a-lifetime achievement – its “dream team” production squad never convened again,
