Arrow Recap: Speedy Traps

15 April 2015 7:16 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week’s episode of The CW’s Arrow managed to take what was a wobbly “twist” — Roy aka Arsenal declared himself to be the Arrow, and turned himself in! — and find in the aftermath some meaty material that both resolved the cliffhanger, exited a major character and lit a fire under the Ra’s storyline.

After Roy was taken into custody, Laurel swung into lawyer mode and got Ollie sprung, seeing as her dad had a confessor in cuffs and zero evidence against Oliver. But Oliver found no peace in that swap, »

Sideshow Collectibles Is Having a 50% Off Sale

1 April 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I think we can all agree that Sideshow Collectibles sells some of the best nerd swag around. Not only do they sell awesome figures and insanely accurate vehicles, most of the figures end up being worth more than you paid since they’re only on sale for a limited time. However, while I love their products, I think we can all agree they’re expensive. Not everyone wants to spend two hundred dollars or more on an insanely accurate toy. But if you’ve been waiting to buy the Destro Sixth Scale Figure, the Noisy Boy figure from Real Steel, some Man of Steel figures, and a number of other items, you might want to jump on this link asap. That’s because Sideshow is having a crazy sale on select items. When you go to pay for the item, add NOJOKE15 to score an amazing 50% Off. I visit Sideshow »

Review: 'Marvel's Agents of Shield' - 'Love in the Time of Hydra': Shield vs. Shield

24 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as it's a little early for Taco Tuesday... "Love in the Time of Hydra" doesn't explain exactly who is funding Real Shield (to the point where they have their own helicarrier, which Coulson's group would kill for), what kind of authority they have within the U.S. government, how neither Coulson nor Talbot seems to know they exist, or any other pesky details. It does, however, explain why this group, led by Edward James Olmos' Robert Gonzales(*), feels the need to have their own group independent of Nick Fury's desires. And it presents them as good guys who just differ on certain philosophical issues from our heroes. That's a change from the Hydra arc introduced in "Winter Soldier," and hero vs. hero conflicts can often be more interesting than hero vs. villain. (There's a reason one »

Wild Card movie review: hardboiled rotten egg

23 March 2015 5:47 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Piles of noirish exposition get the better of Jason Statham in this unpleasantly retrograde crime drama. What happened in Vegas should have stayed there. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): Simon West must be stopped

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I understand why Jason Statham might want to expand his onscreen horizons. I don’t think he has it in him, but I get it. What I don’t get is: Why choose, for such a creative endeavor, this regressive throwback, which would have been unpleasantly backward-looking in the mid 1980s, when William Goldman published the novel it’s based on? (It was first adapted by Goldman himself for film in 1986, starring Burt Reynolds and titled Heat, and it wasn’t met with applause then, either.) Honestly, when I saw that Goldman was credited with the script here, »

Box Office Report: Chappie Has Crappy #1 Opening

8 March 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After one of the biggest winters in box office history, audiences unexcited by new releases left the movie theatres empty on one of the poorest March weekends in recent memory. Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi flick Chappie led the weekend with an estimated $13.3 million – mediocre by the genre’s standards and a far haul from the director’s two previous hits. Its opening was 55% lower than his 2013 flick Elysium ($29.8 million) while the Johannesburg-set film made less money in its first three days than District 9 made on its opening day ($14.1 million).

Despite recent news that Blomkamp would help to revitalize the Alien franchise, few were excited about the director’s latest. A muddled marketing campaign that failed to set a tone of whether Chappie was a sci-fi comedy or thriller, mixed with poor reviews, ensured that the genre’s fans hesitated to give this one a shot. The film opened far »

‘Chappie’ is gloriously bonkers

5 March 2015 4:03 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Chappie

Written by Neill Blomkamp & Terri Tatchell

Directed by Neill Blomkamp

Mexico | USA, 2015

Oh, Chappie… you magnificent bastard. We love you so!

Writer-director Neill Blomkamp pushes all his chips onto the table with this fascinating sci-fi gamble that dares you not to be entertained. Derivative, ultra-violent, and completely baffling, Chappie also manages to be insightful and sweet at times. This technically-accomplished and thematically-suspect robot melodrama has something for everyone to love (and hate). Mostly, it offers the giddy exhilaration of a movie that’s determined to tell its story, no matter how bat-shit crazy it is.

You didn’t know that you wanted to hear Sigourney Weaver scream, “Destroy that robot!” or that you needed a mash-up of District 9, Short Circuit, RoboCop, and Real Steel about a robot gangbanger who talks and acts like Jar Jar Binks. Luckily, Chappie exists so you can see what you’ve been missing. »

'Nightcrawler' Director Talks 'Tsunami of Superhero Movies'

23 February 2015 8:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

To find truly original stories at the local cineplex, we've had to rely on independent film the past two decades, as Hollywood seems intend on force feeding the masses remakes, sequels and superhero movies. One person who thinks there are far too many Marvel and DC adventures flooding the market at this current time is Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy. Speaking out against masked vigilantes and their vice grip on Hollywood, the Nightcrawler director used his win for 'Best First Feature' at the 30th Annual Independent Spirit Awards to rally his filmmaking troops and thank the independent directors weathering the storm. From his podium, he screamed:

"Independent film, the foundation and everybody here today, I think are holdouts against a tsunami of superhero movies that have swept over this industry. We have survived and we have thrived and I think that's true spirit."

His remarks ring truer than ever, as Marvel, »

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Oscars

19 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tron: Legacy.” “Salt.” “Real Steel.” “Rio.” “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.” “Ted.” “Prometheus.” “Star Trek Into Darkness.” “Despicable Me 2.” These are just some of the movies that have received Oscar nominations in various categories in the last few years (mostly thanks to technical prizes), perhaps starting to suggest to the layman that all you have to do is release a movie and you’ll get nominated for an Academy Award. Of course, many of the films above were deserving: few would argue that the sound editing in “Transformers,” or the visual effects in “Star Trek” weren’t world class. But while the awards are spread, rightly, wider and wider, it still leaves a lot of movies out in the cold, and it always has. Many of the greatest movies of all time were nominated for, or won, Oscars, but not all of them. And so, with this Sunday’s ceremony fast approaching, »

Robert Zemeckis to Direct Brad Pitt in Paramount Romantic Thriller

6 February 2015 2:54 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Paramount Pictures announced a new project today without a title or plot, but since Forrest Gump and Cast Away director Robert Zemeckis and actor Brad Pitt are attached to the film, it's still a pretty big deal. The film is merely described as a "sweeping romantic thriller" that comes from an original story by Steve Knight (The Hundred-Foot Journey, Dirty Pretty Things). In addition, it will be produced by Graham King (The Departed, Argo) and his Gk Films banner, who developed the project with Zemeckis and Real Steel producer Steve Starkey. This must be a hell of a project to announce without any details. »

Brad Pitt To Star In Untitled Romantic Thriller From Robert Zemeckis

6 February 2015 12:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount Pictures has announced today that one of their next top-shelf projects has locked in Brad Pitt to star with Robert Zemeckis set to direct. A co-op production that also includes Gk Films and New Regency, the movie has been described as a “sweeping romantic thriller” based on an original screenplay by Steve Knight.

For the screenwriter, this will no doubt come as welcome news. Knight’s latest theatrical title – Seventh Son – hasn’t exactly lit up the critical barometer nor the box office. The fact that two of the industry’s biggest names, Pitt and Zemeckis, are making one of his scripts is a big deal. After all, he also penned Locke and Eastern Promises, both solid character-based pieces, so this new talented crew ought to steer his newest script back on course.

Aside from the fact that the film is described as “epic” and “sweeping,” there’s not much else to go on. »

Grading The 2015 Super Bowl Commercials

1 February 2015 3:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 2015 Super Bowl is more than just cheese products, football and Tom Brady's smug mug. HitFix is watching all the commercials along with you, so get out your red pen: we're grading all the ads as they happen. Follow along, we'll start the tally at kickoff, 3:30pm Pst. -- Fine, it's not kickoff yet, but I half-wish the pterodactyl from the "Jurassic World" trailer would sweep down and pick up Pete Carroll. "Think it will scare the kids?" asks Bryce Dallas Howard's clueless-sounding character. Do You Think? More sweaty shots of Chris Pratt's half-scared, all-brutally handsome face. Grade: B Chevy's "What if your TV went out?" commercial is the equivalent of your little brother poking your feet with a pencil and asking if its annoying. It is annoying. And the Cloverfieldian "cut-out" of my television lacks novelty. AC/DC keeps collecting "Back in Black" paychecks. Grade: D+ Speaking of paychecks, »

Interview with Anthony Mackie and Mike Binder, star and director of Black or White

30 January 2015 8:48 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Black or White is the story of a grandfather, Elliott Anderson (Kevin Costner), who is suddenly left to care for his granddaughter, Eloise (Jillian Estell), by himself. But, when her paternal grandmother, Rowena Jeffers (Octavia Spencer), seeks custody with the help of her lawyer brother (Anthony Mackie), poor Eloise is caught between two families. With the best intentions, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings about race, forgiveness, and understanding.

The writer/director of Black or White, Mike Binder, a native of Detroit, Michigan, is an award-winning and well-regarded actor, writer, director, and producer. Binder’s directorial debut came in 1992 with Crossing the Bridge and has included such acclaimed films as Reign Over Me (2007) and The Upside of Anger (2005), which also starred Costner. Actor Anthony Mackie, is perhaps best known as Sam Wilson/Falcon from Captain America: The Winter Soldier »
