Toronto Film Review: ‘The Escape’

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Escape’
It’s not uncommon for prospective parents, before taking the plunge and starting a family, to ask themselves some dark, nagging questions: What if I’m a terrible parent? What if I don’t even like parenting? What if my child doesn’t like me? What if it’s a mistake? For the vast majority, such thoughts melt away once the child is born, and instinctive love takes over. But there are some for whom these doubts endure, and it’s in this thorny, extended post-partum state that British writer-director Dominic Savage’s intelligent, empathetic character study “The Escape” immerses itself.

Bolstered by Gemma Arterton’s unvarnished, affecting lead turn as a young stay-at-home mom in soulless suburban England who’s slowly consumed by depression she’s made to feel guilty for having, Savage’s film thoughtfully and credibly outlines the conflict between a superficially abundant lifestyle and overwhelming internal lack.

Kevin Nealon Remembers Garry Shandling, One Year Later

Kevin Nealon Remembers Garry Shandling, One Year Later
Last year, my wife, Susan and I were sitting in our parked car on a cul-de-sac in the hills of Brentwood, California, just outside the bougainvillea draped gate that led to Garry Shandling’s Spanish villa. With great melancholy, we were ruminating and paying tribute to our good friend when a postal worker pulled up and sprang out of her jeep with a handful of deliveries. As she headed toward Garry’s mailbox, I gently alerted her that Mr. Shandling had passed away four months earlier and wouldn’t be needing those letters. She somberly responded that she was aware of that, but it was her duty and the law to continue to deliver the Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons, an Architectural Digest subscription and other mail still addressed to him.

2016 was not a good year for a narcissist to die. It was akin to being on an airplane going down with about a dozen famous people

Michael Davis: “I don’t grab pussy. It grabs me.”

  • Comicmix
I was so stunned by the election I just couldn’t bring myself to write a damn thing for the last few weeks. Hell, in the case of Bleeding Cool it’s been months that I blame on my depression and trying to figure out how to fix a problem no one sees yet but with depression I couldn’t care less.

Then something magical happened. Call it a Thanksgiving comic book miracle. It was no less than that. So I hope to be reset at Bleeding Cool, ComicMix and my site Michael Davis World. Mdw had an outstanding and loyal following.

I messed that up big time a week after I began talks to partner with a massive site. Shit. That was stupid.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. My depression was/is a motherfucker.

Once I become fixated on something I just kept at it regardless if I’d achieved my goals.

Watch Britney Spears Join James Corden for ‘Carpool Karaoke’
She did it again!

Britney Spears became the latest superstar to ride shotgun with James Corden on “The Late Late Show’s” newest edition of “Carpool Karaoke.” The songstress took a trip down memory lane, revisiting such hits as “Womanizer,” “Make Me,” “Toxic,” and “Oops!… I Did It Again” during her “Carpool” debut on Thursday.

And if you think you’re the only who doesn’t understand the lyrics to the famous tune “Oops,” think again. Not even Brit Brit knew the meaning of the song. “I really don’t know,” she told Corden. “I think it’s just a song.”

The highlight of the ride came when the dynamic duo recreated the music video for the iconic “… Baby One More Time,” wearing schoolgirl uniforms. Aside from rocking a gray cardigan and white knot-tied button-down, Corden one-upped Spears herself with a pair of pigtails.

Spears didn’t do much singing on the segment, as

Watch: 10-Minute Video Essay Explores 120 Years Of The Cinematic Kiss

  • The Playlist
Ah, the romantic, cinematic kiss — whether it’s a half-bent over, dramatic Hollywood smooch, or a tender, warmhearted peck, two (or more!) pairs of lips meeting in the middle is iconic in the film world. The cinematic kiss stems back to the Wizard of Menlo Park himself, Thomas Edison, who featured the affectation in his 1896 film aptly titled, “The Kiss.” Though considered controversial and later censored, Edison’s film was also the most popular from his studio that year. Now the film is historically relevant (how times change) and set a precedent for the acceptance of public displays of affection for the future. In BFI’s new video essay, they divulge into the amorous history of exchanging a buss, and explore how its evolved alongside the movies. After Edison, Charlie Chaplin had his hand at an on-screen smooch, and the first French kiss was featured in “Flesh and the Devil,

'Han Solo' Spinoff Is Lawrence Kasdan's Last 'Star Wars' Movie
Aside from George Lucas, one of the most important figures in the legacy of Star Wars is arguably Lawrence Kasdan. The filmmaker made his screenwriting debut on 1980's Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, co-writing the script with Leigh Brackett, and he returned to co-write Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi with George Lucas himself. More than 30 years later, he returned to co-write Star Wars: The Force Awakens with J.J. Abrams, and he is also writing the Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo Movie with his son Jon Kasdan, which is set for release on May 25, 2018. During a new interview with the German newspaper Bild (translated by The Supernaughts), the writer revealed that the Han Solo Movie will be his last Star Wars film.

"This is my last film for this saga. I did not even want to do this last one anymore, but my family loved the idea.

Katti Batti Music Review

  • Bollyspice
With Nikhil Advani’s Katti Batti, expectations are high for Shankar, Ehsaan, and Loy to deliver another great soundtrack since the melodious gem of D-Day. It’s a big release for Imran Khan, who’s come back after his paternity leave and Kangana Ranaut, who’s following up the critical acclaim of Queen. Since it’s Advani’s second film of the month, we can be assured that Katti Batti will be a better soundtrack than the formulaic songs of Hero. The songs on this album are immediately catchy whether it’s the clubby Sarfira, or the cheeky Lip to Lip, there’s a song for everyone to enjoy.

First off, we have Sarfira, which immediately has you wanting to groove the night away. The production mixes the typical electronic style with dub-step beats, but it’s the chorus that is instantly addictive. Siddharth Mahadevan is fast becoming one of my favourite playback singers,

Wet Hot American Summer Midnights This Weekend at The Moolah

“Well guys, we’ve made it to the end of the summer in one piece, except for a few campers who are lepers. “

Wet Hot American Summer screens midnights this weekend (August 28th and 29th) at The Moolah Theater (3821 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, Mo). Admission is only $5

Wet Hot American Summer from 2001, is a comedy about summer camp, a spoof of movies about summer camp, a grab bag of random absurdity and a collection filmmakers and now-familiar actors hamming it up as hard as they can. It didn’t make much of a splash when it premiered 14 years ago (I don’t think it even played theatrically here in St. Louis, but I could be wrong about that), but it’s developed such a cult following over the past 14 years that Netflix has made a sequel series, Wet Hot American SummerFirst Day Of Camp.

It’s the last day

David Guetta Takes Us Back In Brand New Essential Mix

With how rapidly David Guetta was becoming the butt of every joke in the world of Edm, he had to do something to re-establish his credibility. This past weekend, he did just that, by delivering an “Influences” Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 that’s chock full of the ’80s house and techno that inspired him to become a DJ in the first place.

We’ve briefly mentioned Guetta’s illustrious musical history recently, and it looks like the proper house bug has bit him again as the mix features some amazing classics. DJ Sneak and Laurent Garnier grace the many seminal names on the track list, all of whom contribute to the retro wonkiness of the mix as a whole. If Guetta feels it necessary to go to these kinds of measures to appeal to an increasingly discerning world of music fans, we’re not complaining.

So, expand your knowledge
