Turbo Kid Review [SXSW 2015]

21 March 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Every once in a while, we’re gifted with a film that makes a mockery of genre classifications, and at this year’s South by Southwest film festival, that movie was Turbo Kid. There’s no realistic way to classify the creative genius on display throughout said wonderpiece, but hell, I’ll give it a try anyway!

This dreamlike fantasy mixes a sweet, coming-of-age love story with the energy of a psychedelic music video and the practical goriness of the most splatterific 80s horror movie you can reference. It’s whimsical, gleefully brutal, and utterly breathtaking. It’s the type of movie that shouldn’t make you so damn happy, but it’s impossible not to be sucked in by the magnificent design and screen-popping colors on display. Turbo Kid is an independent miracle that exists outside of a mainstream system unwilling to take such artistic risks, but without individuals »

Miley Cyrus Considers a Hannah Montana Reunion: It Could Happen If...

23 January 2015 1:28 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Miley Cyrus sure loves her wigs. There's the purple one. Then there's one that would make Rainbow Brite proud. And more recently, she popped on some long locks of silver tinsels (with matching pasties!). "I love the wigs. Everyone loves wearing wigs," Cyrus told me while promoting her new Viva Glam campaign for Mac Cosmetics' Mac AIDS Fund. "It's so easy. If I could get away with it, with wearing wigs everyday, which I guess I could, but my wigs are a little less professional." It got us wondering, does she ever slip on one of her ol' signature Hannah Montana wigs? "I didn't get to keep one, can you believe that?!" Cyrus said. "They're »

'Apes,' 'Birdman' surge as sound editors round out pre-Oscar industry nominations

14 January 2015 2:28 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The final guild/industry group to declare nominees did so this afternoon as the Motion Picture Sound Editors (Mpse) spoke up with a roll call of players for the 62nd Golden Reel Awards. On the film side of things, "Birdman" and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" had the best showing with three nominations each. I've been wondering if the latter could slide into Oscar play this year, but it's hard to gauge here, as "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" had a nice Mpse showing, too. In the effects/foley category, "Fury" is featured as well, also a strong possibility to pop up. All other expected players ("American Sniper," "Guardians of the Galaxy," "Unbroken," etc.) are featured. We'll see how the sound branch shakes it all out tomorrow but I'm a little more confused by where they'll end up going than usual, I must say. Check out »
