Interview: John Bradley Talks Traders and Game Of Thrones

23 hours ago | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Last year at the Fantasia International Film Festival, a dark satirical drama out of Ireland called Traders played and was enthusiastically received, by myself and others. It is a economical little film that mixes the ethos of Fight Club and the current global meltdown; it is certainly not afraid to get its hands dirty.   When two young men, living high and handsome Harry and homebody-ish co-worker Vernon, lose their high paying jobs at an asset management firm due to massive downsizing in the Irish job market, they start a Craigslist-type website on the dark web that allows people in similar situations to liquidate their remaining assets to cash.   The idea is simple: find a person with a comparable sum on the website, meet...

Jason Bourne review

25 July 2016 7:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Published Date  Tuesday, July 26, 2016 - 08:00

I think the new Jason Bourne movie had me when, early in the film, Julia Stiles’ returning Nicky unpacks what looks like a Russian Zx Spectrum 48k and starts using it to hack an otherwise impenetrable computer network. I’d like to think she has a quick go on Manic Miner on it when the cameras were off.

Still, by then we’d already had a ‘previously on Jason Bourne recap’, giving a brief overview of the first three films in the series. And we’d had further evidence that director Paul Greengrass – returning with Matt Damon, after the pair (wisely) skipped The Bourne Legacy – has an unmatched ability to make gazing at computer screens the most thrilling and tense thing in the world. For the umpteenth time in Greengrass-directed movies, I nearly yanked the armrests off my seat, as little graphics blipped across a monitor. »

Denise Richards: examining her recent straight-to-dvd movies

17 July 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 19, 2016

From Blonde And Blonder and You Stupid Man, through to Edmond: we go through the recent straight-to-dvd films of Denise Richards...

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.

Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.

Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life. »

The Best Drama on TV Returns for Year 2

15 July 2016 6:24 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Last year, the sensational USA Network cyber-thriller Mr. Robot won the Golden Globe for Best Drama series, beating out tough competition like the Game of Thrones. The mind-bending and unsettling first season of Mr. Robot was the sleeper hit of summer 2015, impressing fans and critics alike, delivering a show unlike anything else on TV. Now it’s back for its sophomore year and it’s just as slick, stylish and socially relevant as it was last year.

 Computer hacking; rage-against-the-system anarchy; split personalities; secret societies; evil corporations; the FBI…these are just some of the elements in the two-part season premier of Mr. Robot, (Both episodes aired back-to-back on Wednesday night), written and directed by series creator/showrunner Sam Esmail. Rami Malik is back as the psychologically broken Elliot Alderson, and Christian Slater returns as the eponymous Mr. Robot.

 The show starts off by strangely but smartly not answering the »

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episodes 1 and 2 Review: eps2.0_unm4sk-pt1.tc; eps2.0_unm4sk-pt2.tc

13 July 2016 11:19 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Sam Esmail's brilliant drama-thriller is back with a vengeance.

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 1 was an immaculately directed, often shocking return to the dizzying world of Elliot Alderson. All in all, it was everything I hoped the second season premiere would be.

I'm wary about two-parters (so long) but in this instance, every minute was warranted. Given that the cast of characters had expanded so much by the close of the first season, it was smart to use the premiere to sort of "catch up" with nearly everyone, while still finding time to introduce new faces.

We first opened on the moment in which Elliot initiated the big, season-ending E Corp hack.

This was a cool choice, given that we didn't see this happen on screen back in Mr. Robot Season 1 – the hack took place sometime between the end of Mr. Robot Season 1 Episode 9 and the beginning of the Mr. Robot Season 1 Finale, »

Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Premiere, ‘Unm4Sk.tc,’  Finds New Ways to fsociety

Spoiler-free Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Stays True to Its Weird Self

Last year, the debut season of “Mr. Robot” dominated the television conversation, but serialized television is still a “what have you done for me lately?” enterprise, and a great beginning only leads to heightened expectations for season two. The two-hour premiere does a brisk job of re-setting the pieces on the board and introducing new ones. Eliot, still missing three days of memory during which the Five/Nine hack shook the world’s financial stability, has gone home to live with his mother; he stays away from all computers and lives a strictly regimented life that is designed to keep Mr. Robot from causing any more trouble. Darlene is running fsociety actions, although she despairs that they’re only making things worse. Angela is ensconced in her new Evil Corp PR job, although it seems to be killing her soul. »

‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Review: USA’s Hacker Series Raises Zeitgeist Stakes

13 July 2016 6:01 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Although I was a dissenter, few new series received the kind of widespread love Mr. Robot did when it debuted last year. Now back for a second 12-episode season on July 13, the Golden Globe- and Peabody Award-winning USA Network hacktivist series has expanded its scope considerably into, to quote co-star Christian Slater, the "infinite loop of insanity," with encryption as the key. Launching off its once-too-constraining and obvious Fight Club influences, Mr. Robot, as I… »

39 Things We Learned from Robert Towne’s and David Fincher’s Chinatown Commentary

13 July 2016 10:21 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“They did this in one take, which I hate.”

David Fincher loves Chinatown.

Of course, anyone who appreciates brilliant filmmaking should feel the same way, especially if they also appreciate themes of human nature drenched in cynicism. The film is easily one of the smartest, most beautiful gut-punches to come out of Hollywood in the ’70s (or any other decade for that matter), and it remains a powerful commentary on greed, bureaucracy, and the futility of good intentions.

Fincher sat down with Robert Towne, the film’s writer, for a commentary, and it makes for a fascinating look at a classic film.

Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary for Roman Polanski’s Chinatown.

'Mr. Robot': Everything You Need to Know for Season 2

12 July 2016 6:16 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Nothing is a coincidence or an accident in Mr. Robot, Sam Esmail's hacker psychothriller that wormed its way into last year's TV season like a particularly efficient computer virus. Visually stunning and meticulously plotted, the first season tapped into a rich vein of paranoia and disillusion running through the heart of late-stage capitalist society — in other words, it's not exactly your typical USA Network fare, a channel known for play-it-safe shows like Royal Pains and White Collar.

Told from the perspective of Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek), a brilliant but »

How Alien: Resurrection led to the Ice Age movies

12 July 2016 5:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 13, 2016

Blue Sky Studios’ CGI work on Alien: Resurrection began a long and fruitful relationship with 20th Century Fox…

When Blue Sky Studios was tasked with creating swimming CGI Xenomorphs for the fourth film in the Alien franchise, its animators looked to inspiration from the natural world. Aptly for Hr Giger’s demonic creations, said inspiration was found in a Galapagos Island creature nicknamed by Charles Darwin the “imp of darkness”.

“We patterned [the Xenomorphs’] movements on reference footage of sea iguanas” Blue Sky’s Digital Effects Supervisor for Alien: Resurrection Mitch Kopelman told American Cinematographer magazine in November 1997. “They have this crazy little swim where they tuck their legs under their bodies and use this really long tail to propel themselves.” After much work, the end result was the CGI swimming aliens that pursued Ellen Ripley and co. through the flooded kitchens of the Usm Auriga in the 1997 sequel. »

Review: Rami Malek continues to amaze in 'Mr. Robot' season 2

11 July 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When a TV show becomes a phenomenon in its first season like Mr. Robot did(*), there's always some concern leading into the second. Will the elements that made it distinct at first still feel special after we've had a year to get used to its tricks? Do this world and these characters have enough story in them to last many seasons, or did the creative team exhaust all their ideas early on? Are we about to get a sophomore slump like True Detective, or a sophomore surge like Fargo? (*) A critical and online phenomenon, anyway. Ratings for airings on USA (which is still paying the bills for the show) were small throughout. Across Mr. Robot's first hiatus, those concerns felt more amplified than normal. No, Rami Malek wasn't likely to become less riveting in his second go-around as damaged computer genius Elliot Alderson. And the show's story of Elliot's »

TV Review: ‘Mr. Robot,’ Season 2

11 July 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Now that the secrets of “Mr. Robot” are known — its hallucinations identified, its faces unmasked, its world markets burned to ashes — the show’s second season faces a historically difficult task: writing the next chapter after the first tore the story’s universe to shreds. Precisely because the first season was so thorough and brilliant, the task for the second stands to be monumental; what comes next will necessarily lack the propulsive quality of last year’s  unraveling mystery, and on top of that, there are many loose ends to stitch together.

But if any show could make the prospect of that task more thrilling than daunting, it’s “Mr. Robot,” last summer’s sleeper hit. The USA cyber-thriller deftly walks the line between macho intellectual exercise and nuts-and-bolts techno-corporate re-creation. It continues to astonish that the show is unafraid to name brand names, or to hack in actual lines of code. And »

Review: ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2 Stays True to Its Weird Self

10 July 2016 7:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The most important thing that “Mr. Robot” faced, going into Season 2, was the idea of addressing what happens next. While the Season 1 finale featured several unanswered questions, there was something relatively completist about the narrative, especially given the show’s biggest reveal — Mr. Robot’s (Christian Slater) real identity.

Fortunately, the Season 2 premiere proves that there’s plenty of story left to be told. The aftermath of fsociety’s big win at the end of Season 1 continues to reverberate across the world, but though things are far from resolved. Darlene (Carly Chaikin) and her fellow rebels are still trying to fully realize their revolution, while the Evil Corp executives are trying to recover their lost money and power. A battle has been won, but the war is ongoing. The system is damaged, but still technically intact. »

NYC Weekend Watch: Alain Resnais, Theo Angelopoulos, ‘Last Tango In Paris’ & More

7 July 2016 7:07 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Metrograph

“Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z” has a packed weekend with a slate that includes Alain Resnais‘ Je t’aime, je t’aime, Nicholas Ray‘s The Lusty Men, Jackie Brown, and, yes, Jackass 3D.

Baumbach & Paltrow‘s De Palma plays with a Jim McBride feature on Saturday and two De Palma shorts on Sunday. »

Hey, Marvel! Charlie Kaufman Will Write a Superhero Movie (If Asked)

4 July 2016 7:59 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Charlie Kaufman went from TV scribe to red-hot screenwriter in 1999 with “Being John Malkovich,” and his timing couldn’t have been better: That’s a year the industry looks back upon as being a flashpoint of American indie cinema, with rule-breaking, ambitious films like “Pi,” “Boys Don’t Cry,” “The Blair Witch Project,” “Three Kings” and “Fight Club” in multiplexes. That was also a time when major studios still ran “classics” divisions for smaller, arthouse (and arthouse-adjacent) fare, and from the vantage point of 2016, it feels like a million years ago. Charlie Kaufman would be the first person to point that. »
