Movie Review – Jupiter Ascending (2015)

9 February 2015 11:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jupiter Ascending, 2015.

Written and Directed by The Wachowskis.

Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie RedmayneDouglas Booth and Tuppence Middleton.

Synopsis:

In a bright and colorful future, a young destitute caretaker gets targeted by a ruthless son of a powerful family that live on a planet in need of a new heir, so she travels with a genetically engineered warrior to the planet in order to stop his tyrant reign.

If I subscribed to the adage of ‘so bad it’s good’ then Jupiter Ascending might have been one heck of a fun time at the cinema; however, I do not and will never succumb to that way of thinking; so this latest film from the Wachowskis was an unmitigated disaster of galactic proportions. A film so bad and in which every aspect is so poorly handled, no one walks away unscathed – the most afflicted being the paying audience. »

In an age where comic book movies, reboots, remakes and films based on toys reign supreme, a movie like Jupiter Ascending should be praised for at least being “original”. It’s a movie that doesn’t play it safe with its $175 million budget and instead makes the sort of film one wouldn’t expect to see in this age of cinema. And who better to do this than The Wachowskis, who wowed us back in 1999 with the fantastic The Matrix, »

César Nominations: ‘Saint Laurent’, ‘Timbuktu’, Kristen Stewart In Mix – Full List

28 January 2015 2:25 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Update, 2:25 Am Pt: Last year’s dueling Yves Saint Laurent biopics each picked up several nominations this morning for France’s César Awards. Bertrand Bonello’s Saint Laurent, the country’s entry for the Foreign Language Oscar, leads the pack with 10 mentions, followed by Thomas Cailley’s Directors’ Fortnight title Les Combattants with nine, and Oscar nominee Timbuktu with eight. Yves Saint Laurent, from helmer Jalil Lespert, took seven nods. Otherwise, there are a number of usual suspects in the batch including Best Actress Oscar nominee Marion Cotillard for Two Days, One Night, as well as Juliette Binoche for Olivier Assayas’ Sils Maria. In something of a departure — and a first — for the French Académie, they nominated American actress Kristen Stewart for her supporting turn in that Cannes competition entry. (Adrien Brody won the Best Actor prize in 2003 for The Pianist.) There are also six nominations for late 2014 release La Famille Bélier. »

27 January 2015 3:41 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Do you like films with strong female leads? Do you like to watch "the fairer sex" prove that they.re not as fair as society has often portrayed them?

Bruce Willis Signs Up For Extraction

21 January 2015 2:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember when Bruce Willis used to make interesting, original movies, like Pulp Fiction, Twelve Monkeys and The Fifth Element? An air of excitement would surround each announcement detailing which project the actor would get involved with next. It’s been some time since that excitement has been felt, however, because Willis has essentially been making the same movie, repeatedly, for years. The next product from that assembly line will be Extraction, directed by Steven C. Miller (Silent Night).

The plot focuses on a father and son duo of – wait for it – CIA agents, with Willis as the seasoned elder operative who is traumatized by the – you guessed it – murder of his wife. His less-experienced CIA operative son is working with him on the manufacture of a super-weapon known as the Condor, but is thrust into the driving seat when his father, Willis, is kidnapped by terrorists. As he realizes that »

VOD Spotlight: Filming “Lucy”

20 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

When director Luc Besson wrote the first version of the script for Lucy 10 years ago, he intended for the action to be set in Taipei, Taiwan. He had gone to the city in 1997 on a promotional tour for The Fifth Element and loved the people and the feel of the city. When the time came to scout locations for this action-thriller, the filmmakers considered a few different Asian cities in which to film the picture — for budget and logistical purposes. Says Besson: “The funny thing is that, in the end, we shot in Taipei and picked the … Continue reading →

19 January 2015 6:03 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week is a big one for sci-fi fans, as several fantastic films from 2014 are making their home entertainment debuts, including The Zero Theorem, Lucy and Coherence. Horror fans have a lot to look forward to as well with the releases of several notable titles like Wolves, Annabelle and Gnome Alone, which looks to be a hoot of a genre send-up.

Spotlight Titles:

Lucy (Universal Studios Home Entertainment, Blu/DVD/Digital HD & DVD)

From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history. Now, Besson directs Scarlett Johansson in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman accidentally caught in a dark deal who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. Lucy also stars Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman.

Wolves (Ketchup, DVD)

Watch: 'Taken 4' Trailer Gives Liam Neeson the Perfect New Co-Star

16 January 2015 7:29 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In case you haven't heard, Taken 3 is pretty terrible. It's boring, has awfil action, a predictable story, stupid villains and still doesn't measure up to that surprisingly great first film. But thankfully, it looks like Taken 4 is going to be infinitely better. Sure, Taken 3 may still be in theaters, but this sequel looks so damn exciting that you're going to be anticipating this one more than The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In this one, Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson) finally gets the co-star he's always needed: Guillermo from "Jimmy Kimmel Live." Honestly, this could reinvigorate the entire franchise. Watch! Here's the trailer for Taken 4 with Liam Neeson and Guillermo from "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night: Taken 3 is directed by Olivier Megaton (Taken 2) and written by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional) and Robert Mark Kamen (The Transporter franchise).

5 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Franchises Bioware Needs to Work With

15 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

BioWare has done some incredible things with the Star Wars license.  While there have been some stumbles with The Old Republic, it's hard to deny how good the company is at crafting memorable Sci-Fi/Fantasy stories in general (just look at the Mass Effect and Dragon Age franchises).  With another Star Wars game apparently in the works from them, I got to thinking about which other Sci-Fi/Fantasy franchises could use a great game from the Bioware team.

I'm a sucker for fun stories and epic tales; two things BioWare seems to specialize in.  Since they've done so well with one of the biggest science fiction properties around, Star Wars, I'm sure they're more than able to handle other much beloved sci-fi and fantasy franchise.  There are several worthy tales out there which haven't received the video game attention they deserve, or simply didn't get good games, so perhaps BioWare »

The Taken trilogy, wish-fulfilment and wish wariness

9 January 2015 2:31 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The arrival of Taken 3 leaves James pondering the appeal of vigilante movies...

Taken 3 is set to take cinemas by storm, with force and with Bryan Mills showcasing that particular set of skills and his especial resolve. Mills is, of course, played by the indomitable Liam Neeson, and the plot for this threequel revolves around the battle to clear his good (?) name.

He's been accused of a brutal murder that he didn't commit or witness, so now Mills is going to use that infamous skillset to hunt and find the real killer, all while evading the authorities who'd put him behind bars and his film franchise on hiatus. Oh, and the murder victim was his ex-wife Lennie (Famke Janssen), so there's bonus devastation and a whole can of emotional worms for the man to wrestle with.

For the third movie, then, it isn't just a family member that's been »
