Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of The New World

1 December 2008 8:39 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

In the opening scene of Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn Of The New World, the hero from the original Tales Of Symphonia goes rogue, torching an innocent village and casting his lot with religious terrorists. This really does seem like a new world, where a Tales game literally burns its bridges to weave a dark, complex epic—on the Wii, no less. After an enticing start, though, New World falls into the old habits of the Japanese RPG genre. The game hints at a serious story, but never sheds its discount-anime hijinks long enough to tell it in compelling fashion. The protagonist, Emil, recounts the harrowing night his parents were murdered before his eyes. Then, a few steps down the trail, his female sidekick maneuvers for a kiss, which is totally ewww! Girls are so weird! And we're jarred back into cutesy-land. The narrative oddities would be more forgivable if »

Malick Eyes Sir Gawain

13 November 2008 8:50 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Earlier this week we reported that Showtime was looking at a modern day retelling of the Camelot tale and now Ain’t it Cool News is reporting that director Terence Malick (The New World) is developing his own take on the legendary court of knights.

The Independent on March 23, 2002, first wrote about this, saying, "[Jim] Caviezel's old friend Malick (also a Catholic) is apparently planning to make a film of the Middle English poem, Gawain and the Green Knight. Gawain is a proud and virtuous knight tempted three times by a beautiful lady, the Green Knight an emissary from God who ultimately exposes the chinks in his armor. Caviezel may well have talked himself out of a job by the time Malick gets round to casting, but he'd make a perfect Gawain. He's so determined to be a saint, but what he always sounds is human." »

The New World: The Extended Cut

21 October 2008 9:04 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Visitors to the Jamestown Settlement in Virginia can roam through reconstructions of the original Virginia Company colony and its environs, fantasizing about "the unspoiled America," when the possibilities for a fledgling nation seemed limitless. In 2005, writer-director Terrence Malick released The New World, his own interpretation of the founding of Jamestown, and though it was met with mixed reviews and middling box-office, some cinephiles watched it repeatedly—even after Malick cut the running time from 150 minutes to 135—because they were enraptured by the movie's vision of the natural world, and how man struggles to thrive in it. Like the Jamestown tourist attraction, The New World was an immersive experience for some, but one with a stronger command of metaphor. The New World: The Extended Cut stretches the film to 170 minutes, keeping the clearer narrative structure of the 135-minute cut while restoring some of the more lyrical interludes of »

"What Just Happened" - New images added!

14 October 2008 7:11 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

New images in the gallery for Magnolia Pictures' "What Just Happened" starring Robert De Niro, Bruce Willis, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro, Kristen Stewart, Lili Rabe, Catherine Keener, Robin Wright Penn and Sean Penn. Barry Levinson directs the 2929 and Tribeca Productions release distributed by Magnolia Pictures. The film made its debut this January at the Sundance Film Festival. Art Linson, producer of powerful films including "Into the Wild," "Imaginary Heroes," "Spartan," "The Untouchables" and so many more fine works, adapts his own material for the screen. This is Linson's second attempt at writing, his last? 30 years ago for "American Hot Wax." See images now. What's this about? What Just Happened is a winningly sharp comedy about two nail-biting, back-stabbing, roller-coaster weeks in the world of a middle-aged Hollywood producer -- as he tries to juggle an actual life with an outrageous series of crises in his day job.Academy Award »

On DVD Today: October 14, 2008

14 October 2008 1:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

DVD Links: Release Dates | New Dvds | Reviews | RSS Feed Today I have a Ton of new titles to tell you about. Most would best be left as a rental, some you will be inclined to buy (but should you?) and others will be a question of whether you believe it is worth upgrading to high-definition Blu-ray. I can only recommend what you should do, you have to decide which way you will go with it. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2-Disc Special Edition) Most of us realize this isn't a good movie. Some enjoy the Indiana Jones franchise so much they are willing to look beyond all the problems this film has and have fun with it. I can respect that, after all, your enjoyment is what's important not what others think. Admittedly, watching this flick a second time on Blu-ray I was able to enjoy »

Michael Mann vs. David Fincher: Nike Football Challenge

12 October 2008 4:01 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jeff Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere pointed out Nike's latest Nike Football "Leave Nothing" commercial, this year directed by David Fincher and shot by Emmanuel Lubezki (Ali, The New World, Children of Men). The spaghetti western motiff is pretty cool and it got me thinking back to last year's equally cool (if not cooler) commercial shot by Michael Mann with his frequent Dp partner Dante Spinotti (Heat, The Insider, Public Enemies). Now I leave it up to you, which one do you like better? I know there is an opinion out there because I know there are a lot of Mann and Fincher fans in the RopeofSilicon audience. Then again, perhaps it is a matter of whether you favor Shawne Merriman and Steven Jackson over Ladainian Tomlinson and Troy Polamalu. Let your voice be heard.

DVD Review: The New World (2005)

6 October 2008 8:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Wow . that Terrence Malick.s on a roll! While it took 20 years before he directed a follow-up to 1978.s Days of Heaven, Malick cranked out 2005.s The New World a mere seven years after the release of 1998.s The Thin Red Line. At that rate, he might finish another film before this decade ends!

But I wouldn.t hold my breath. World offers Malick.s take on the oft-reiterated legend of Pocahontas and John Smith. Set in 1607, a group of British colonists led by Captain Christopher Newport (Christopher Plummer) arrives in Virginia. There they set up camp and mingle with the .naturals.. Newport tries to make these interactions peaceful and productive, though tensions inevitably emerge between the two cultures.

This means the natives lose trust in the British, so the colonists need to find other trading partners to survive. They hear of a .king. not far away, and disgraced Captain »

Kyra Sedgwick and "The Closer" returned in high style, with Monday night's season opener snaring 7.8 million viewers - the year's most- watched basic cable telecast. It also notched year-to-date ba sic-cable highs in households and adults 25-54. Can't get much better than that.

Disney Channel's "Picture This!," starring Ashley Tis dale, came close, though, with its Sunday- night pre miere averaging 4.3 million viewers - the week's top- rated movie on all of TV. * * *

Kilcher Makes A Difference With Salary-funded Awareness Films

10 March 2008 8:02 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The New World star Q'orianka Kilcher has recently returned from a year's sabbatical in Peru, where she used her salary from her role as Pocahontas to make a documentary about indigenous tribes.

The 18-year-old hopes to use money she makes from each one of her films to highlight awareness surrounding America's "voiceless" communities.

The half-Peruvian actress, who recently received a Brower Youth Award for her conservation and preservation efforts, says, "I started acting to give voice to the voiceless."

Kilcher is now planning a film about Alaska's wildlife and she'll turn cash she makes for playing Hawaii's Princess Kaiuiani into another awareness drive.

And the energetic teenager is also planning an expedition up Alaska's Mount McKinley: "I want to climb it before it melts." »

- #6. Tree of Life Director/Writer: Terrence MalickProducers: Sarah Green, Grant Hill, William Pohlad and Donald Rosenfeld Distributor: Currently Seeking Distribution The Gist: Hey...if you have an idea let me know. So far we know that it is a complex drama that will see Sean Penn in the lead role and Ledger is replaced by Brad Pitt.
