Film Review: ‘Everly’

26 February 2015 4:25 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A premise seemingly culled from any number of fanboy wet dreams winds up shooting mostly blanks in “Everly,” a bloody and derivative action vehicle that not even the spectacle of a scantily clad, gun-toting Salma Hayek is enough to fully sustain. Playing out in something close to real time as a desperate prostitute tries to bust her way out of a nightmarish gangster stronghold, shooting and slicing her way through hordes of Japanese yakuza, this slickly assembled exploitation-movie wankfest gets some mileage out of its star’s fully committed performance, though not enough to offset the grim, monotonous tenor of the proceedings — or the glib, fetishistic recycling of Asian thriller tropes. Hayek’s attachment will ensure ever-healthy VOD, though fewer eyeballs (to cite one of many tortured body parts) will be drawn to Radius-twc/Dimension’s Feb. 27 theatrical release.

[Exclusive Preview] “The Names” #7 From Vertigo Comics

26 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

I’ve read the first few issues of “The Names” and I must admit that the distinction of Kill Bill meets The Wolf of Wall Street is an accurate description that somehow still doesn’t do this incredible series justice. It reads like a contemporary horror story but pushes something with a little more of a political or social agenda. […] »

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...

It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.

This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »

The Bride Wore Black | Blu-Ray Review

17 February 2015 5:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Nearly two decades into a career that has since spanned nearly seven, Jeanne Moreau had already worked under the direction of Godard, Malle, Welles, Antonioni, Demy, Ophüls, Frankenheimer and Buñuel, among others, by the time she collaborated again with François Truffaut, who had previously helped make her a star with Jules and Jim. Their third collaboration (the first being 400 Blows), The Bride Wore Black, a psycho-thriller inspired by the work of his hero Alfred Hitchcock again put her in the spotlight, this time as a vengeful seductress to which Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman’s Bride of Kill Bill is much indebted to (though the homage crazed auteur claims to have never seen the film). With incredible bipolar turns, Moreau plays Julie Kohler, a widow on a mission to take revenge on the five men (including Claude Rich, Michel Bouquet, Michael Lonsdale, Daniel Boulanger and Charles Denner) responsible for the death of her husband. »

How Did NBC's Slap Strike You?

12 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you’ve seen any of NBC’s recent promos for its new miniseries The Slap, you may have been tricked into thinking that Zachary Quinto’s Harry is the lone bad guy in a group of do-gooders.

But the show’s premiere episode, which debuted Thursday, paints a much different picture.

Early into the hour, it becomes clear that every character in the ensemble is massively flawed, particularly Hector (The Killing‘s Peter Sarsgaard), from whose perspective the episode is told.

The Slap Review – TV NBC – High Drama Meets Flaccid Characterizations

12 February 2015 12:49 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Slap, an 8-episode recreation of an Australian miniseries, which is based on a popular novel, is NBC‘s latest attempt at “Event Television,” but it is a tricky, sloppy effort that purports to be an examination of, to varying degrees, “reality,” but in the sense that demands the quotation marks.

As the promos, and name, give away, the show revolves around what happens to a family when one moment, a slap, throws everything into turmoil. This leads us to, as we get toward the end of the show, a great many secrets being revealed.

There could hardly be more of a misrepresentation of what this show is about.

After watching the show’s trailer, and perhaps hearing a very basic outline, you might get the idea that the show is about trying to get past a horrible mistake. A child is shown to be rather unruly, and his parents »

The Real Story Behind Uma Thurman's New Look

11 February 2015 10:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After Kill Bill star Uma Thurman walked the red carpet of NBC's The Slap premiere earlier this week looking noticeably different many people began speculating that the 44-year-old actress had gotten plastic surgery.

Thurman's longtime makeup artist Troy Surratt sat down with Refinery 29 to detail the star's new style, and the reason behind the remarkable change, saying simply, "We experimented with the makeup."

Photos: Two Looks, One Star

"We did a much stronger brow and a bold lip for a French sort of feel," Surratt revealed. "I applied a creamy foundation for all-over glow, and then contoured the hairline and her cheekbones, adding warmth. I applied the lip… and then we just kept the eyes really, really light."

It was Thurman's eyes that drew the most attention, with some insisting that she had gone under the knife. The vitriolic reaction was similar to the blowback Renee Zellweger received when she attended Elle's 21st Annual Women in Hollywood »

The "Kill Bill" star made headlines the next day, with reports questioning whether she had gone under the knife for a little nip-tuck. Turns out, the 44-year-old was just rocking a different style of makeup. Thurman's makeup artist, Troy Surrat, spilled all the details about her new look to People, where he said that her fresh appearance was simply the effect of a little face paint. "Frankly, I’m quite surprised by the conversation," Surratt told the site. "By now I would have thought that we were all open to and knowledgeable of the role that makeup plays in the world of fashion and particularly celebrity, as a medium for creative self expression. I think that women should feel »

Fired ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Star Vivica A. Fox Blasts Kenya Moore’s ‘Little Cheap Shot’

10 February 2015 2:16 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Fired NBC “Celebrity Apprentice” contestant Vivica A. Fox snapped back at recent comments from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” diva Kenya Moore who previously told TheWrap, “Bosses don’t cry in the boardroom.” “I saw that little cheap shot she tried to make,” Fox said to TheWrap on Tuesday. “I’m an emotional creature, I’m a woman, and I’ve never been ashamed to show my feelings and that I care.” Fox’s quip came after Moore criticized the “Kill Bill” actress for tearful moments during eliminations. The pair’s quarrel became a staple throughout the season with verbal jabs »

Uma Thurman Looks Different at The Slap Premiere Party—See Her Fresh-Faced Appearance

10 February 2015 9:19 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Something looks different here...and we can't quite put our finger on it.   Uma Thurman stepped out on Monday to attend the premiere party for her new miniseries The Slap in NYC, where the 44-year-old star turned heads—and is making headlines today—due to her apparent new look.  Wearing bright red lip stick and minimal eye makeup, the Kill Bill beauty posed for pics in an all-black ensemble, flashing a subtle smile while showing off her very smooth skin.  After the images first surfaced, fans quickly began commenting that the Pulp Fiction star looks different, due, in part, to her nearly fresh-faced appearance. Only seeming sporting bold lips and skin-smoothing foundation, the »

Uma Thurman Looks Unrecognizable, Wears Minimal Makeup on Red Carpet

Uma's new look! Kill Bill star Uma Thurman looked almost unrecognizable as she walked the red carpet in New York City on Monday, Feb. 9 wearing minimal eye makeup and an all-black ensemble. Perhaps due to a lack of makeup around her usually very distinctive eyes, the 44-year-old actress looked noticeably different than she had in recent appearances. Thurman, who often wears bangs, had her blonde tresses smoothed back behind her ears as she walked the red carpet for her new NBC miniseries The Slap, alongside costars Thandie Newton [...] »

See 100% Soft's 'Mass Hysteria' Artwork for 'The Avengers' & More

2 February 2015 1:29 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just last fall we featured an adorable collection of artwork from a Los Angeles artist called 100% Soft. The series had a unique childlike style focused on movie MacGuffins, and now the artist, real name Truck Torrance, is back with a new exhibition at Gallery 1988 with a show called Mass Hysteria. For this series, Torrance focuses on big crowd scenes, using his signature, sweet little illustrated characters to bring scenes from The Avengers, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Kill Bill, Oldboy and more to life in a whole new way. They're almost like super cute Where's Waldo pages, and you can get your hands on some. Look! Here's some of 100% Soft's pieces from the Mass Hysteria show (via SlashFilm): Mass Hysteria will begin showing on February 6th at 7pm local time at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles (that's 7021 Melrose Ave), and it will be on display through February 28th.

Slash, Boom, Crack... The Sound of Quentin Tarantino

2 February 2015 10:28 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney has cut together a 90-second video "exploring" Quentin Tarantino's use of sound throughout his career including just about everything you can imagine from beer pouring out of a tap to an adrenaline shot to the chest. His entire feature length oeuvre so far is included, which means Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained. It almost plays out as if it's Tarantino by way of Edgar Wright, utilizing that similar quick editing Wright has parodied in his films, chiefly Hot Fuzz. Perhaps Tarantino would even respect it as such given the fact he sat with Wright for a commentary on that very film. vimeo id="118431867" width="500" »
