The Great Wall Review

16 February 2017 10:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When I think about China’s Song dynasty, the first thing that comes to mind is Matt Damon. You too, right? A movie like The Great Wall is just screaming for a “William” to save the day, because native warriors surely can’t fend for themselves (duh). A little whitewashing, a dash of CGI monsters and voilà! You’ve got yourself a generic slash-em-up atop, in front of and behind China’s most wondrous landmark. Director Yimou Zhang splatters rocky landscapes with colorful costumes and fiery explosions, but it’s not enough to salvage snooze-worthy drama whenever characters start to jabber. Did you expect something more than swift monster mutilation? I seriously hope not, you crazy loon.

Damon’s William is but a weary mercenary looking for some magical weapon known as “black powder.” The Chinese possess it, so he sets out with a party to “barter.” After a harsh spell of travel, »

Verhoeven, Gyllenhaal Talk Sex, Violence and Movies at Berlinale Talents

12 February 2017 11:02 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Opening the Berlinale Talents panel discussion series on Sunday, festival jury president Paul Verhoeven and jury member Maggie Gyllenhaal took part in a candid and humorous conversation with film historian Peter Cowie spanning politics, religion, music, astronomy, art and, unsurprisingly, sex and violence. Asked about the role of politics in film, Verhoeven, director of the Golden Globes-winning “Elle” as well as earlier hits like “Basic Instinct” and “Total Recall,” rejected the notion that politics need to be part of film while noting that time and distance offer better opportunities to tackle political subject matter. “It’s very difficult for an artist to react immediately to what’s happening. You need distance to transcend. Reacting now to the crisis we face with this Mr. Trump from a film point of view would be extremely difficult because there is so much happening. The politics of the moment will ultimately be important in the next 10 or 15 years. »

Fantasy Fridays: Scully & Mfr Cast Masters Of The Universe!!

10 February 2017 11:08 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

We'd like to forget all about the last attempt at a live-action Masters of The Universe movie. Sorry, Dolph! Great hair, though.

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays, where two real-life best friends (Jeremy Scully and I, Mario-Francisco Robles) get together to cast/pitch our dream movies. 

In the past, we've tackled everything from The Batman to the Universal Monsters.

This week, we turn our attention towards the long-gestating cinematic reboot of Masters of The Universe. Jeremy and I grew up on the classic 80s cartoon, and I had a ton of the old action figures. Yet even we knew, as children, that the 1987 movie starring Dolph Lundgren was crap. That's why we'd like to put our own spin on what the reboot should look/feel like.

Over the years, many filmmakers and various studios have tried and failed to get a Masters of The Universe movie off of the ground. »

According to the film’s director, there’s no word on Warcraft 2 – yet

10 February 2017 4:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although it didn’t have a great domestic theatrical run, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft was a huge success overseas and became the most successful video game movie ever made. We did hear word late last year that a sequel was in development solely designed for the Chinese market, but now the director has thrown some shade on those discussions.

When asked on Twitter if a sequel was getting made, Jones simply replied, “Id love it to happen! Waiting to hear from [the studio].

.@WellMax81 Id love it to happen! Waiting to hear from @Legendary

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 9, 2017

Me too! Up to @Legendary https://t.co/oa9mHPgTl3

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 9, 2017

@hanimishka Definitely. The hard work is done! The next film would be so much fun!

Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 9, 2017

He then retweeted praise from fans of the film, presumably in the hopes to get a sequel off the ground.

Interview: Legendary Filmmaker Roger Corman Discusses Death Race 2050

13 January 2017 2:47 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Racing onto Blu-ray, DVD, and digital platforms everywhere on January 17th is Death Race 2050, which was co-written and directed by G.J. Echternkamp and produced by the legendary Roger Corman, who was also the producing force behind Death Race 2000 back in the mid-1970s.

In late 2016, just a day or two after the 2016 Presidential Election, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with Corman about this latest iteration of the Death Race universe. During our conversation, Corman discussed the socio-political relevance of both Death Race 2050 as well as the original Death Race, why they chose to return to the retro-futuristic realm for this iteration, collaborating with Echternkamp, and what keeps him going after enjoying a successful career in Hollywood for over 60 years now.

Great to speak to you today, Roger. I have a feeling this conversation would have went a little bit differently had the election gone a different way. »

Great Job, Internet!: Paul Verhoeven’s sci-fi classics remind us how the media normalizes fascism

9 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The word “normalize” has gotten a lot of mileage in the past couple months, thanks to the rise of a racist, sexist, xenophobic reality star to the presidency of the country. The media’s “gotta hear both sides” mentality toward his alt-right supporters has been called an agent of normalization for once-radical politics, as has the hair-tousling antics of Jimmy Fallon and the “It’ll be good for business!” shrug of many in the business world and the Republican party.

But the notion that the mass media helps reassure us that things aren’t as bad as they seem—that they’re funny and fine and normal—is not new. Paul Verhoeven’s trio of science fiction classics (RoboCop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers) explored this, each using the mass media to make unpalatable ideas more palatable. A short video essay from Fandor captures this well.
