Westworld Season Finale Will Be "Insane" According to J.J. Abrams

16 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Image via HBO

If you like movies like The Shining, Inception, Memento, or Donnie Darko, then Westworld is for you. It’s not necessarily the content that’s similar, but the fact that when you are done watching it you have no idea what is going on.  This is a show that, after you’ve seen it, you're still not done with it.  One could spend hours online just researching fan theories, which is something I have done myself.

If you’re like me, then you’re eagerly awaiting a mindblowing season finale, and according to J.J. Abrams, it won’t disappoint. Speaking on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Abrams stated praised the folks in charge of the production, specifically Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. In praising their involvement in both the pilot and the finale, he indicated just how “insane” the season’s ending would be:

The Current Debate: Future Memory in "Westworld"

8 November 2016 8:45 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Steven Soderbergh, asked about the collapsing boundaries between film and television earlier this year, said, “It’s all just stories to me. […] You can see something that somebody made for a streaming platform that has more cinema in it that the most successful movie in release right now.” Even if you don’t quite agree, it’s undeniable that Soderbergh has hardly been alone in moving from film to television, so in the spirit of his comment, this week’s column peeks over the fence at one such series: HBO’s Westworld, the creative product of Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan, the co-writer, with his brother Christopher, of five films. Mary McNamara describes the show’s set up at the Los Angeles Times:Like the 1973 Michael Crichton film on which it is based, “Westworld” imagines a future in which artificial intelligence technology has reached such near-perfection that an alternative-world theme park populated by androids is possible. »

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at what into relaunching the Batman and Superman franchises, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 1997. Batman And Robin came out and was a huge black eye for Warner Bros., effectively turning what was a once promising franchise into a punchline. It was the fourth installment of that series, and it killed Batman almost as definitively as the fourth Superman film had grounded the Man of Steel exactly 10 years earlier. 

But before we can look at how Warner Bros. planned to rebound its DC properties post-1997, we have to »

Oscars 2017: Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd Will Produce the Academy Awards

4 November 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Academy took its time finding its Oscar producers this year.

For three years in a row (2012-2014) they could rest easy knowing that Craig Zadan and Neil Meron were in charge, but since they moved on the AMPAS president Cheryl Boone Isaacs and CEO Dawn Hudson are back to trying to convince someone to take on the often arduous and thankless task.

They usually pick a team to split the chores as they did last year with Reginald Hudlin and David Hill, who by all reports, were like oil and water. That wasn’t going to happen again. With less-than-glowing reviews for the last few Oscars, Isaacs and Hudson were looking for someone they could count on to elevate the event.

The Academy has never found another producer like director Gil Cates, who produced the Oscar show 14 times between 1990 and 2008, bringing in Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, David Letterman, Steve Martin, »

Review: How 'Westworld' may be acting too clever for its own good

30 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Westworld coming up just as soon as my humanity is cost-effective... "You said people come here to change the story of their lives. I imagined a story where I didn't have to be the damsel." -Dolores For the last few reviews, I've segregated out discussion of a particular fan theory so that it came at the very end of the review, the better to spare anyone who hadn't yet heard it and would rather not know in the event it turned out to be correct. This week, I can't do that — not just because "Contrapasso" offered by far the biggest support yet that some version of the theory is right, but because it's impossible for me to discuss my concerns about the episode, and the series to date, outside the context of the theory.

Review: In 'The Stray,' 'Westworld' asks how much the robots really remember

16 October 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's Westworld coming up just as soon as I use my employee discount... "There aren't two versions of me. There's only one. And I think when I discover who I am, I'll be free." -Dolores Memory has been a very public fascination of Jonathan Nolan's going back to the short story that inspired Memento, so it's not surprising that the question of what the hosts remember — and what the Delos staff would like to forget — has been such a key part of Westworld. As Dr. Ford explains to Bernard, he and the park's co-founder, the mysterious Arnold, understood that the robots were there only to serve the guests, but that they could do them a kindness of keeping the hosts from remembering all the terrible things they experienced in the course of their duties. The problem is, that kindness is starting to fail, and the robots' »

Viff 2016: Cadence Review

6 October 2016 11:33 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Memory is a tricky thing because it's not concrete. It's a subjective, often fluid construct that can change based on everything from mood to physical surroundings and unless you're one of the lucky few graced with photographic memory, your memories are (regardless of whether you admit it to yourself or not) largely unreliable.

There have been a number of great films about memory - notably Christopher Nolan's Memento and Brad Anderson's The Machinist - and Alexander Lasheras' debut feature Cadence is a worthy entrant into the cannon of great thrillers about memory.

A passion project years in the making, Lasheras' films stars up-and-comer Max Chadburn as the titular Cadence, a young woman excited about spending the weekend with her boyfriend Taylor Lake (Charl [Continued ...] »

Christopher Nolan Is Now the Highest Paid Director in Hollywood

30 September 2016 2:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It is very difficult to become a highly respected director in Hollywood and it can be equally hard to get paid well for the type of work that gets one that kind of respect. In many cases, respect doesn't equal a massive payday, but in the chase of Christopher Nolan, the two are going hand in hand. His latest movie Dunkirk, a World War II epic due out next summer, has officially made him the highest paid director in Hollywood.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Christopher Nolan will be getting paid $20 million up-front for Dunkirk, which represents a small fortune on its own. However, the director is also said to be getting 20 percent of the gross for Dunkirk and If his last handful of directorial efforts are any indicator, that will represent a tremendous payday. This is said to be the most lucrative deal for a director since Peter Jackson »

‘Dunkirk’: Christopher Nolan Earning Massive $20 Million Pay Day For World War II Epic

30 September 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Realizing just how much “Memento” proved Christopher Nolan to be a visionary storyteller, Warner Brothers quickly recruited the young director to helm their remake of the Norwegian murder mystery “Insomnia.” Released in 2002, the movie earned strong reviews and, most importantly, over $113 million at the worldwide box office, over two times its $43 million budget. “Insomnia” proved just how lucrative the Nolan business could be, and Warner Brothers has stuck by the filmmaker’s side for each massive new blockbuster ever since. But for the director’s new WWII epic “Dunkirk,” that meant signing off on one of the richest film deals ever.

It's been a while since we've seen Carrie-Anne Moss in any big movies. Her last major role was on the Netflix show Jessica Jones, which I thought she was good in. I'm a fan of Moss, so I'm rooting for her.

The first trailer for Ben Affleck's gangster film Live by Night was unveiled on Thursday, where violence erupts within seconds and continues throughout the two-and-a-half-minute clip. The actor stars, directs and also adapted the screenplay for the forthcoming film.

Based on Dennis Lehane's book of the same name, the movie is set in the 1920s and chronicles Joe Coughlin, portrayed by Affleck, as he succumbs to a life of crime. "I signed up to fight in the war. I went away a soldier," the son of a Boston police captain says. »

Review: Naam Hai Akira, A Perfect Storm Of Ineptitude

3 September 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Ar Murugadoss is a filmmaker who lives in a world of big ideas. Over the last decade he's made a string of big budget, often high concept features that typically flounder with critics but tend to turn a profit with mainstream audiences. Beginning with his Bollywood debut Ghajini, a remake of his own Tamil language film, Murugadoss has set himself apart as a director unafraid to take narrative risks and throw a bit of left field madness into his films. With Ghajini, it worked like gangbusters as his thinly veiled riff on Christopher Nolan's Memento, complete with technicolor dance numbers, burned up the box office and became the biggest grossing Indian film of all time back in 2008. In the years since Ghajini, Murugadoss has...

Venice Film Review: ‘Brimstone’

3 September 2016 5:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Dutch director Martin Koolhoven had a major hit in the Netherlands with his 2008 WWII drama “Winter in Wartime” (released in the U.S. in 2011). He got offers from Hollywood, but chose instead to make “Brimstone,” his first internationally financed English-language production. When you see the movie, which premiered today at the 73rd International Venice Film Festival, it’s easy to understand why he was courted by American studios. The title shot of the film reads “Koolhoven’s Brimstone,” and that’s a kool piece of branding, one that recalls the title shot of “Breaking the Waves” (in which the name “Lars von Trier” appeared in huge letters, with the film’s title in small print). Beyond that, Koolhoven’s work speaks in the bold syntax of franchise Hollywood; it’s full of panoramic eye candy and ultra-violence.

Yet “Brimstone,” despite its large-scale studio flourishes, could never have been bankrolled in Hollywood. »

Fund This: Uncover The Mystery Behind ‘A Murder At The Casidir Motel’

31 August 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Project Name: A Murder At The Casidir Motel

Asking For: $1,080 on Kickstarter

Amount Raised Thus Far (At Time Of Post): $662

Days Remaining In Campaign (At Time Of Post): 11

Description: A new project on Kickstarter is looking to add another chapter to the web series community's library of murder mysteries. A group of creators from New Zealand have turned to their backers in order to fund A Murder At The Casidir Motel, which will tell a whodunit story that bends time.

Casidir Motel will take place at its titular venue, where a woman has been found stabbed to death in a bathtub. In order to uncover the truth about her death, a pair of detectives choose to look back it time. On the surface, the series sounds similar to Memento, the Christopher Nolan thriller that famously toys with time and perspective.

I would love to tell you more about Casidir Motel, »
