Smashed Review

14 December 2012 1:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: James Ponsoldt

Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aaron Paul, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Octavia Spencer

Running Time: 85 minutes

Certificate: 15

Synopsis: The life and times of a young couple in Los Angeles dealing with alcoholism and rehabilitation…

The term ‘Sundance indie hit’ has been so often used it brings a shudder to hardened film critics and casual viewers alike. Does the term simply mean yet another low budget rambling human drama?

Films about alcohol addiction are never ‘pleasurable’ viewing. Think Leaving Las Vegas or When A Man Love A Woman. Marriage, relationship breakdowns, wallowing emotions, criminal activity, death, are staples of such films.

But tonally, Smashed is closer to 1962’s Days Of Wine And Roses. Kate (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a fun loving primary school teacher. She is the soul of the party when she’s drunk, not adverse to a bout of karaoke singing belting out ‘Cruel to be Kind’. Her husband, »

Smashed with Mary Elizabeth Winstead

29 November 2012 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Best known for horror sequels, she has radically reinvented herself in her latest role: an alcoholic teacher who vomits in class

Straight off the bat, I tell Mary Elizabeth Winstead that she looks like crap in her new film. Those crushed eyes squinting out of a waxy face, the hair like oil-slick seaweed, the rag-doll posture. She takes it rather well. "This was not the movie where you wanted to be spending hours in makeup," she says. Or minutes, come to that. The film is Smashed and the smashee in question is Kate, a Los Angeles primary school teacher failing miserably to keep her alcoholism under wraps. In the first scene, she wets the bed. Dozing beside her is her husband (played by Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul); he is also an alcoholic, which explains why his response to waking up in her urine is very much in the "Oh, »

“Transformers 4″ Searches For New Leads

18 October 2012 9:57 AM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The Transformers are tired of working with a dude, or at least, with Shia Lebeouf. That’s right, Michael Bay’s last film in the series, Transformers 4 will feature all new human and robot characters (though I’m assuming Optimus Prime will be invited back).

The fourth film is taking the action to space and the studio is searching for an actress to be the leading role. The only description we get for her is that she’s a “high school senior,” while her boyfriend will be a “Texan racecar driver.” I didn’t think it’d be possible to hate characters before they really exist, but nope, that just happened. It doesn’t really sound like they’ll be doing anything fresh with this freedom to cast all new human roles, aside from “flipping the script” for a female. Whichever way you look at it, groan.

10 Terrible CGI Moments in High-Budget Movies

4 September 2012 11:52 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Though one can trek through the annals of film history and find countless instances of awful visual effects in everything from 1930s creature features to modern low-budget Asylum pics, our judgement of visual effects is so often tailored to our expectations that it’s never as galling – or as hilarious – than when a high-budget Hollywood feature boasts absurdly low-rent CGI. Thus, the focus in this feature is on recent films from the last decade-or-so, whereby many of the classic pitfalls should have been ironed out, but going by this list, they in fact haven’t been.

Also, while infuriating characters like Jar Jar Binks from George LucasStar Wars prequel trilogy inspire more ire than the below visual effects foibles combined, that is more a failure of personality than of aesthetic craft, so he and his kind have been excluded from the list. Also, films that are intended to be »

First Official Look At 'Carrie' Remake In Horror Bites!

23 August 2012 7:25 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

"Entertainment Weekly" has posted two bloody photos from Kimberly Peirce's "Carrie." The film is inspired by Brian De Palma's 1976 movie, and is more faithful to the chilling Stephen King novel. Chloë Grace Moretz plays bullied high school student Carrie, who uses her telekinetic powers to retaliate against her nasty classmates. Julianne Moore is her mother, Margaret White — a religious woman whose sense of humanity and affection for her daughter turns vicious and violent. Moretz spoke to the magazine about the famous scene at the prom where a bucket of pig's blood is dumped on her head. "We only have, like, four chances to get it right, because that stuff stains your hair." Carrie unleashes mayhem in theaters on March 15.

Universal Finds a Director for Videodrome Remake

22 August 2012 1:28 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Universal is moving forward with a remake of David Cronenberg’s cult classic Videodrome and is in talks with a director to take on the project. According to Deadline, commercials and music video director Adam Berg is Universal’s choice for the remake. Should he sign on, this will be Adam Berg’s first feature film.

The script was written by Ehren Kruger, who is producing the film with Daniel Bobker. If you’re not familiar with Ehren Kruger, you’re definitely familiar with his work, as he has written for the following films: Scream 3, The Ring, The Ring Two, The Skeleton Key, The Brothers Grimm, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

In terms of what we can expect from the new film, it won’t be a shot for shot remake or horror film. It sounds like they are going with something similar »

A Director Has Been Found for the Videodrome Remake

22 August 2012 1:24 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Looking back at the last time we did a story about the Videodrome remake Universal has on its plate, it's hard to believe it was over three years ago! Yes, things move slowly in Hollywood, but that's about to change because a director has been chosen.

Per Deadline celebrated commercials helmer Adam Berg is in talks to make his feature directing debut on Videodrome, a remake of the 1983 David Cronenberg-directed film that is set up at Universal Pictures. Ehren Kruger (The Ring, The Ring 2, Blood & Chocolate) scripted the remake and is producing with partner Daniel Bobker.

James Woods starred in the original film as the head of Civic TV Channel 83. He makes his station relevant by programming "Videodrome," a series that depicts torture and murder that transfixes viewers. When Kruger and Bobker set it up at Universal, they planned to modernize the concept, infusing it with the possibilities of nano-technology, »

Hideo Nakata Enters the Suicide Forest

14 June 2012 1:53 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Hideo Nakata and evil, malevolent spirits go together like Japanese ghosts and girls with long hair. So it makes perfect sense for producers Roy Lee and Taka Ichise to tap the Japanese director to helm their upcoming adaptation of the comic book “The Suicide Forest”. The books, from El Torres and Gabriel Hernandez, “revolves around Aokigahara, a vast forest outside Tokyo which is called the most famous suicide spot in the world. Legend [has it] spirits of past suicides roaming among the trees. An American ex-pat living in Tokyo must enlist the help of a forest ranger in Aokigahara to help free him from the clutches of an evil spirit haunting him from the Suicide Forest.” Well, that’s one forest I’ll be scratching off my “Places to Visit When I Go to Japan” list.

Hideo Nakata Heads into The Suicide Forest

14 June 2012 1:11 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If you've never heard of Japan's suicide forest and are looking for a good chill to send tingling down your spine, do yourself a favor... Google it and then turn every single one of the lights on and pray to whatever you believe. It truly is the stuff of nightmares.

Deadline reports that producers Roy Lee and Taka Ichise are teaming on a live action feature adaptation of The Suicide Forest, the graphic novel from Idw Publishing. They’ve attached Hideo Nakata to direct. He helmed Ring, which hatched The Ring, and he directed The Ring Two, but let's forget about that last bit, shall we? I still have CGI deer running through my head.

The first in a series of four graphic novels written by El Torres with artwork by Gabriel Hernandez, the thriller revolves around Aokigahara, a vast forest outside Tokyo which is called the most famous suicide spot in the world. »

Director Hideo Nakata, best known for helming the Japanese horror film Ringu as well as the American sequel The Ring Two, is now looking to tackle an adaptation of the graphic novel The Suicide Forest.  From author El Torres and artist Gabriel Hernandez, The Suicide Forest centers on a vast forest outside Tokyo known as the most famous suicide spot in the world.  Legend tells that the spirits of past suicides roam among the trees, and an American must enlist the help of a forest ranger to help free him from the spirit of his ex-girlfriend who has resorted to haunting him on a vengeful mission (as all dead ex-girlfriends are wont to do) There are currently four issues of The Suicide Forest, but it appears Book 1 is the one that’s being adapted here.
