“Mrs K” proves that Kara Hui still got it

Yuhang Ho had a very difficult task in his hands from the beginning: to shoot an action martial arts film where all of his protagonists are (almost) over 50. The result, however, was more than impressive, as he worked over the particular reef by limiting the action and adding many thriller elements.

Mrs K” will screen at Art Film Fest Kosice, that will be on June 16-24

Mrs K is a housewife, happily married with a gynecologist, and mother to a teenage girl who is also a martial artist. However, underneath the calm, happy and motherly figure resides something else, as Mrs K used to be part of a crime ring. As her former comrades are being killed one by one, a rather unpleasant former police officer visits her house and confronts her about the past. Furthermore, another man, who seems to know her quite well, resurfaces, and along with his henchman,

Movie Review: League Of Gods offers the deadly farts of a six-armed baby in dazzling 3-D

Koan Hui—former man Friday to Hong Kong maestro Tsui Hark and co-writer of Tsui’s Time And Tide and The Blade—makes his directing debut with League Of Gods, a 3-D extravaganza of canted angles and composited whooshes that luxuriates in an unreality unknown in Hollywood outside of the Wachowskis’ Speed Racer. It may not have an ending or even a climax. It may not have dialogue that rises above the level of “So, Nine-Tail Fox isn’t the biggest threat! Actually, it was the Black Dragon!” or characters who emote in anything other than evil, heroic, or lovelorn stares. But it has an old man who turns into a towel and many giant animals and a six-armed baby who flies around on a jet of his own highly pressurized piss, ripping crab-people in half with his seismic waves of flatulence. That counts for something.

Technically speaking, League Of

Agent Carter season 2 episodes 1 & 2 review: The Lady In The Lake & A View In The Dark

Is Agent Carter season 2 as good as season 1? No. It's even better. The opening two-parter is flawless Marvel television...

This review contains spoilers.

2.1 The Lady In The Lake & 2.2 A View In The Dark

In the past, I’ve criticised Marvel’s TV output for too-frequently failing to meet the high standards of the movies. Even the Netflix output, which has been occasionally excellent, is uneven at best. In fact, of all Marvel’s spin-offs, it’s fair to say that the first season of Agent Carter is the only one they completely nailed. So it’s with some delight I can say that the episodes that get Season 2 rolling are, if anything, even better.

This is, by some distance, as close as I’ve come to feeling like I’m watching a Marvel movie within the TV format. It’s funny, it’s fast-paced, and the characters are multi-faceted but consistent.

Agent Carter episode 4 review: The Blitzkrieg Button

Vials of blood, broken necks and a seriously entertaining Howard Stark. That's just some of what this week's Agent Carter served up...

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 The Blitzkrieg Button

If you've been wondering why Dominic Cooper's Howard Stark isn't appearing in every episode, this week gives us a tacit admission: as a chronically vain one-liner spouting playboy, he's in danger of walking off with the series if he appears too much. It's not a surprise, really. He's essentially a one-man punchline, revelling in all the same things that make Peggy's life hard, and yet we love him for it. Pool table in a shipping container? How can we resist?

That said, the real problem with Stark's inclusion is that there isn't really space in the episode for him And Jarvis, so the latter was sidelined for the majority of the show. It's great to watch Atwell's comic timing play off Cooper's,

ABC president defends ratings for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter

Much like sister show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., ABC’s latest Marvel offering Agent Carter isn’t quite managing to replicate the runaway success of its big screen counterparts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with the show slumping to a 1.5 rating and 5.1 million viewers with Tuesday’s third episode ‘Time and Tide’ [read our review here]. However, ABC President Paul Lee isn’t quite ready to declare the two shows a failure, despite lower than expected viewing figures.

“We feel very optimistic about [Agent Carter’s ratings]. S.H.I.E.L.D. is actually a great and powerful show for us, [it’s 18-49 demo rating with seven days of DVR playback playback] pops up to a 3.0, it brings in a male audience for us and it’s creatively really strong now. We left a great cliffhanger at the end of Christmas and now it’s going to come back with some fantastic storylines. And to have Agent Carter in the [S.H.I.E.L.D. hiatus] gap doing sort of double what we were doing

Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ Series Blog: “Time and Tide” [Contains Spoilers]

Director: Scott Winant

Writer: Andi Bushell

Cast: Hayley Atwell, James D’Arcy, Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj, Shea Whigham, Kyle Bornheimer, Lyndsy Fonseca

Synopsis: Carter enlists Jarvis’ aid once more, and together they attempt to figure out how Brannis smuggled Stark’s weapons out of his vault. Trouble stirs though, when Jarvis is arrested by the S.S.R. on suspicion of being involved in the Roxxon explosion. Carter, forced to protect her asset, stands to lose what little respect and integrity she has at the S.S.R. in order to get Jarvis released. Shadowy and sinister events unfurl further as a mysterious assassin starts to track Carter.

Verdict: Less is more, but here, less is… well, less. ‘Time and Tide’ slows the steadfast start to the series to a steady trickle of what feels like progress, but it is clear that we’re seeing Carter as she starts to evolve.

The Flash: Dexter’s Devon Graye joins show, villains trailer

Ready for more villain nicknames? You’d better be, because The Flash has plenty more a-coming…

The particle accelerator dark matter explosion thingy was a masterstroke in the creation of The Flash, meaning that there will never be a shortage of baddies for Barry to defeat, and Cisco to nickname. It’s like the storm from Misfits, but with a tad more explanation.

The latest to join the villainous ranks will be Devon Graye, who you might recognise from Dexter (he played the teenage version of Dexter himself). In The Flash, he will be portraying a copy-cat version of The Trickster, who will be played by Mark Hamill, who is reprising his role from the 1990s show.

Both appear in episode 17. Here’s a little trailer to refresh your memory of all those villains, and tease a few of the new ones…

Agent Carter: more Howard Stark, potential Avengers crossover

Marvel Studio’s Jeph Loeb has been discussing the future of Agent Carter, and the possibilities for Avengers crossovers…

Since he disappeared in the premiere episode of Agent Carter, fans have been wondering if we would see more Howard Stark.

“Howard returns,” Marvel's Jeph Loeb has confirmed, “and as you can guess from there, there might be reasons he reached out to Agent Carter at the beginning, that he wasn’t entirely truthful about.”

Loeb was asked at the same Television Critics Association event whether Agent Carter would cross over with Age Of Ultron - an interesting question, as the properties exist decades apart. The theme of Starks’ ‘bad babies’ getting out of their control is a shared plot element, though.

Loeb’s response was interesting: “the safest thing I would like to say is that #It’s All Connected.”

It’s unclear whether he actually said ‘hash-tag’ out loud,

Agent Carter episode 3 review: Time And Tide

Agent Carter starring Hayley Atwell continues its winning streak with a strongly written third episode...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Time And Tide

After a strong pair of opening episodes, this week's Agent Carter proved that the series has no intention of slowing down the pace with a third instalment that advances the plot, develops the main characters and turns in some surprising twists for the supporting cast. It may have been slightly lighter on action, but it's testament to the show's strong writing and well-drawn characters that when the fight scene turned up you'd almost forgotten the show's genre demanded one.

The most interesting thread this episode pulled on was Jarvis' backstory. It's been clear from the first instalment that he wasn't exactly an ordinary butler, and in this episode he claims to have been mountaineering before the war, and that he was discharged from the army for treason after

Agent Carter Recap: Fake Mistakes and Real Ones

Agent Carter Recap: Fake Mistakes and Real Ones
Giving Agent Carter an eight-episode order gives the show license to act a bit like a cable show — that is, faster. Unlike Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter doesn’t need to hold a story line over a full season, so we don’t get three or four “Ill-Advised Invention of the Week” episodes before “Time and Tide,” where Jarvis and Peggy find all the inventions in one place. I’m a little amused by the fact that they simply follow a giant hole in the floor of Stark’s mansion straight to the river and the boat of floating goods. Did no one search that house after Stark was accused?The boat is where we come upon our one and only fight sequence in the episode, and it’s amazing, as expected. Marvel’s female fight sequences are doozies even if they are few and far between, and they’re

Agent Carter Season 1 Episode 3 Review – “Time and Tide”

Amy Richau reviews episode three of Marvel’s Agent Carter

The third episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter bounced back quite nicely from the slight disappointment of the second episode in the series. This is in large part because the episode, “Time and Tide”, focuses on Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Howard Stark’s “butler” Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy).

Time and Tide” picks up soon after the second episode left off. After discovering Howard Stark’s license plate at the scene of the implosion, Carter’s Ssr co-workers zero in on Jarvis to find some answers. Carter is in the trickiest of positions. She’s working with Jarvis to help clear Stark’s name at the same time her co-workers are trying to arrest Stark, and any of his accomplices.

Agent Carter, Ep. 1.03, “Time and Tide” needs a little less talk

Agent Carter, Season 1, Episode 3: “Time and Tide

Written by Andi Bushnell

Directed by Scott Winant

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on ABC

First things first, “Time and Tide” is a very boring hour of television compared to the boom of a start Agent Carter got off to in its first two episodes. It’s one thing to spend all of a season’s budget in the pilot, it is another thing to make that explicitly clear by having the very next installment turn out dull as dirt. Through the first 48 minutes or so of the episode, close to nothing happens besides small talk and exposition between various characters. What’s worse, much of this dialogue is used to dispense information the audience should already know, or at least be able to guess is coming a mile away. For a limited event series currently confined to eight episodes, an entire

Marvel's Agent Carter Recap: You Win Some, You Lose Some
This week on ABC’s Marvel’s Agent Carter, Jarvis landed in the Ssr’s crosshairs and a happy discovery wound up having deadly consequences.

Notebook Reviews: Tsui Hark's "The Taking of Tiger Mountain"

  • MUBI
The opening title card improbably, surprisingly reads “New York 2015,” and within seconds we are immersed in a expatriate Chinese holiday party for a friend about to leave for a new job. The images come fast and contextless; CGI renderings of New York, quick interiors, and critically, a glimmer of analogue past. An old Chinese film starts accidentally on the group’s karaoke machine, prompting groans and rolling eyes. Quickly (inevitably), the same footage is played on a cell phone, in the back of a cab. A lone man, pulled by nostalgia and memory, is lured into the image and an impromptu journey to his home town.

Tsui Hark’s The Taking of Tiger Mountain 3D is the latest in the director’s career-long exploration/re-interpretation of key Chinese myths, events, narratives and texts, and we find our subject here as young party guests accidentally cue up Taking Tiger Mountain by Strategy,
