Forever episode 17 review: Social Engineering

4 March 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Forever's recent uptick in quality is reflected in this week's well-written and engaging episode about a cybercrime-related murder...

This review contains spoilers.

1.17 Social Engineering

When I read the synopsis for this story I groaned a little inside, because the focus on cyber-criminality when Henry doesn’t even own a mobile phone seemed concerning. Movies and TV shows are notoriously bad at representing anything to do with computers, as if those involved in creating them have never actually used one.

Thankfully, the amount of made-up-junk surrounding computers was kept to a reasonable minimum in what turned out to be one of the strongest stories so far. 

Someone connected has his dirty washing aired on TV by a hacktivist group, and then ends up dead, unexpectedly. The suspicion quickly falls on the politician, except it is pretty obvious he comes from the Gerald Ford School of Presidential hopefuls, and not the Richard Nixon one. »

Review: The Deal, A Serviceable But Generic Korean Revenge Thriller

2 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Korea delivers yet another serviceable revenge thriller with The Deal, a well-oiled but overly familiar addition to the longstanding local genre staple. With young women violently murdered during downpours and Kim Sang-kyung once again playing a hapless detective at his wit's end, the film immediately calls to mind modern classic Memories of Murder (2003), an inevitable comparison but a tough act to live up to. Veteran cop Tae-soo takes on a small hit-and-run case but what he ends up tracking down is Gang-chun, the perpetrator of a brutal series of wanton slayings. At first basking in his victory, he soon realizes that the killer's last victim was his sister. He desperately tries to get her whereabouts out of Gang-chun but fails, bringing despair upon him...

Forever episode 16 review: Memories Of Murder

25 February 2015 6:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

All bets are off in this week's episode of Forever. Does the show have a massive twist in store for the season one finale?

This review contains spoilers.

1.16 Memories Of Murder

When The Ecstasy Of Agony first introduced Iona ‘Molly’ Payne (Hilarie Burton) it marked a previous high point for the series. Because at the time it very effectively railroaded the show off a predictable track towards Henry and Jo becoming partners. While Forever has slipped back towards that on occasion, Memories Of Murder, and the return of Molly really scuppered some of those possibilities, and also entirely altered what appeared to be the future focal point of the whole show.

But before I get into that, there’s a mystery to unravel about a women found dead as if she’d time travelled from the seventies, and how that links into fading memories of the past. That was at best so-so, »

Night Train to Tokyo: ‘Café Lumière’ and Ozu’s Legacy

8 February 2015 8:39 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Taiwan’s Hsiao-hsien Hou has often spoken of his admiration for Japanese master Yasujirō Ozu. In the 1993 documentary Talking with Ozu, attached to the Criterion edition of Tokyo Story and featuring such commentators as Claire Denis and Aki Kaurismäki, he compares the man’s work to that of a mathematician: one that observes and studies in a detached, clinical fashion. Often, returning to the same themes of generational conflict within the family unit, but doing so with a profound self-confidence that only lends such reiterations more weight. Hou goes on to state that, while he considers his own “observations and insight into the human condition” to be similarly objective, he really can’t compare. Yet, the similarities are very much evident. Indeed, few batted an eyelid when Ozu’s longtime employer Shochiku, upon commissioning a project for his centenary, chose not a Japanese but Taiwanese director to best capture the spirit of his films. »

Memories of Murder

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's second film "Memories Of Murder" is being adapted for Korean television as the police procedural series "Signal" which Korean TV vet Kim Eun-Hee will produce.

The original film deals with the true story of South Korea’s first known serial murders. Details on the cast or the production start date aren't known yet. [Source: The Playlist]


"The Amazing Spider-Man" director Marc Webb has taken over directorial duties on the pilot for CBS' TV series based on the film "Limitless". The story follows a man who discovers the drug Nzt and becomes coerced by the government to use his incredible abilities to help the FBI solve cases every week.

Neil Burger, the original film's director, was slated to helm the episode but was forced to drop out after scheduling complications arose with his currently shooting Showtime drama pilot "Billions". Burger remains on board as an executive producer. »

Bong Joon-Ho's 'Memories Of Murder' Becoming A Korean TV Series

3 February 2015 8:39 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

What do the movies “Fargo,” “Parenthood,” and “Teen Wolf” have in common? They’ve all been turned into successful TV shows. Soon joining their ranks, albeit not stateside, is Bong Joon-Ho’s “Memories Of Murder.” Per Fandor (via Twitch), South Korean director Bong Joon-ho’s sophomore feature will be adapted for Korean television as “Signal,” under the tutelage of Korean TV vet Kim Eun-Hee. With police procedurals as popular as ever on the small screen both here and abroad, it’s only natural that one of the best big-screen attempts of the last decade would get the long-form serialized treatment. In case you didn’t know, Bong Joon-ho’s film follows the true story of South Korea’s first known serial murders. For those that only know of the director through “The Host” and “Snowpiercer,” "Memories Of Murder" is a great look at a long investigation that stands toe-to-toe with »

Two films by Bong Joon-ho are slated for adaptation. Snowpiercer will become an "erotic parody," reports Pierce Conran at Twitch, and Memories of Murder is headed for Korean television. Stephen Chow and Tsui Hark are in talks to collaborate on a sequel to the $215 million Chinese movie Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. Woody Allen’s next film, featuring Joaquin Phoenix, Parker Posey, Emma Stone and Jamie Blackley, has a title: Irrational Man. Shooting begins on Whit Stillman's adaptation of Jane Austen's Lady Susan next month. And we've got more news of projects in the works. » - David Hudson »

Memories Of Murder Coming to the Small Screen

2 February 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

It looks like Snowpiercer isn't the only Bong Joon-ho film getting the remake treatment. I don't normally cover TV news but I thought I'd make an exception for this. Considered by many to be one of the greatest Korean films of all time (it's my favorite), Memories of Murder is heading to the small screen in Korea as Signal. Writer Kim Eun-hee (2006's Once in a Summer and Kdrama Three Days) will adapt the film, written by Bong Joon-ho and Shim Sung-bo, which itself was based on Kim Gwang-rim's 1996 play 'Come See Me'. No word yet on casting, but given Kim's stature in the Kdrama industry, not to mention the fame of the original film, I think we can safely expect a few big...
