Great Job, Internet!: Why The Matrix has a perfect cinematic beginning

5 May 2017 1:04 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

We may not agree on much around here, but most of us admit to having positive feelings toward The Matrix. Remember the first time you ever saw it, how much that crazy intro with Carrie-Anne Moss’ Trinity blew you away by being like nothing you’d ever seen before (outside of a Gap commercial)? A new YouTube video by Patrick Willems called “The Matrix: How To Begin A Movie” points out just why The Matrix’s cinematic entry is so impressive.

To start with, it breaks every typical sci-fi entry mode. Usually, sci-fi movies have to add text or expository dialogue to explain the current weird worldview we’re looking at—like the long-rolling text in Star Wars. The Matrix gives us no such info, just rows of green numbers and a man and woman talking, with dialogue like, “You like watching him.” It’s creepy and instantly confounding. »

5 May 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

The story of eight strangers who are inexplicably connected is back, and with its return will come answers.

Sense8 launches its second season Friday on Netflix. For the uninitiated, the high-concept sci-fi series — created by Lana and Lilly Wachowski (The Matrix, Cloud Atlas) with J. Michael Straczynsk (Thor, World War Z) — follows eight "sensates" who come to discover they are emotionally and mentally linked, forming a "cluster." Scattered across the globe, a DJ in Iceland, imprisoned martial arts maven in Seoul, Chicago cop, San Franciscan hacktivist, Nairobi bus driver, Mexico City movie star, Berlin safe-cracker and Hindu pharmacist in Mumbai spent the first »

‘Sense8’ Trailer: It’s Cluster Versus Cluster in Season 2’s Bonkers Battle — Watch

4 May 2017 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Sensates, they grow up so fast these days.

In the most recent trailer for Season 2 of Netflix’s totally bonkers “Sense8,” we see that our favorite cluster of eight — Capheus (Toby Onwumere), Kala (Tina Desai), Lito (Miguel Angel Silvestre), Nomi (Jamie Clayton), Riley (Tuppence Middleton) , Sun (Doona Bae), Will (Brian J. Smith) and Wolfgang (Max Riemelt) — has really come together and are owning their linked identity and strengths.

This means far more cooperation, especially when it comes to fighting. That’s good since it appears that our unfairly good-looking cluster is about to go mano a mano (times ocho) with another cluster that is clearly evil (note the goatee and shades  on that one guy). Take a look at the face-off below:

Dude, Wolfgang just head-butted a woman!

Great Job, Internet!: Here’s why The Matrix moves so smoothly

27 April 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Matrix is remembered for a lot of things: the influential technical aspects like the use of bullet time and 1990s CGI that managed to not look terrible; the imaginative world-building that was richly expanded in The Animatrix and greatly confused with the film’s actual sequels; and, of course, a bunch of people doing bad Keanu Reeves impressions saying, “I know kung fu.” But one thing people often forget to acknowledge about The Matrix is that it’s just a damn well-made movie. This fact can be attributed in part to the film’s use of transitions, which allow a glut of complex visuals and lore to be translated into a smooth and tightly constructed story.

In a new video essay, Patrick Willems examines the Wachowskis’ use of transitions over the course of The Matrix’s three acts, highlighting exactly why they’re so effective. For example, the entire »

‘Sense8’ Season 2 Review: No More Learning Curve, As Lana Wachowski Revs the Show Forward

26 April 2017 12:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The best way to enjoy “Sense8” as a series is to not question it too much. It’s a show that has a lot of complicated elements, with Season 2 continuing to expand the mythology that creators J. Michael Straczynski and the Wachowskis built from scratch in Season 1, but if you find yourself asking too many questions about the rules that govern this world, you’ll find yourself lost in the weeds.

This isn’t to say that the show doesn’t have an intriguing plotline, which only gets denser and richer in Season 2. But you’ll be missing the best aspects of a show that leads with its heart, first and foremost. In telling this story about eight once-upon-a-time strangers who find themselves bonded together by a psychic link, the creators have chosen to celebrate the sense of connection that underlies this premise.

If you watched Season 1, you know what we’re talking about. »

‘Catfight’ Finds Both Brutality and Humanity In Its Bloody Brawls

Pick of the WeekCatfight

What is it? Two old college friends cross paths as adults and beat the ever-loving crap out of each other.

Why see it? Onur Tukel’s latest is also his best thanks in part to the lead performances by Sandra Oh and Anne Heche. They do a good job of manipulating our sympathies and concerns ensuring that our loyalties shift from act to act. Themes of female friendships, class distinctions, and redemption run through alongside a satirical look at modern life, and there’s a terrifically wicked streak throughout. Funny, smart, and brutal are all apt descriptors for this cynical look at our violent selves.

Genius review – Geoffrey Rush impresses as an unexpectedly racy Albert Einstein

23 April 2017 8:17 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

National Geographic, in its first scripted TV drama, gives the physicist’s life sassy, whip-smart on-screen treatment

The first time we catch a glimpse of Geoffrey Rush as Albert Einstein in Genius – National Geographic’s inaugural foray into scripted drama – the larger-than-life theoretical physicist is in the middle of something. A man celebrated for his extraordinary mind is busy stimulating a different part of his body: his pants are around his ankles and, in the throes of passion, his lover Betty (Charity Wakefield) is pressed against a blackboard strewn with chalk-drawn calculations.

Wowza. I wasn’t expecting Einstein After Dark. It’s a racy introduction to another, perhaps predictably excellent performance from Rush, who since his breakthrough in 1996’s Shine as the tormented pianist David Helfgott, has been attracted to eccentric genius characters like a moth to the light.

Free Fire: Director Ben Wheatley On His Feature-Length Shoot-Out

19 April 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

For many years, director Ben Wheatley has been one of Britain’s top genre exports from his early supernatural crime-thriller Kill List to the dark comedy Sightseers and the trippy war movie, A Field in England. Last year, he even took on the difficult task of adapting J.B. Ballard’s High-Rise, starring Tom Hiddleston, a crazy movie that also paid homage to another great British filmmaker, Stanley Kubrick.  (All of these movies were either written, co-written and/or edited by Wheatley’s long-time silent partner, Amy Jump.)

Wheatley’s new movie Free Fire features an amazing ensemble cast that includes Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Michael Smiley and more, as it sets up a gun deal that goes wrong and turns into a violent shoot out inside an abandoned warehouse.

The movie shows the amazing skills of Wheatley and Jump with terrific dialogue and some of the most insane action scenes, »
