‘Playing It Cool’ Review

3 March 2015 2:27 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan, Iaon Gruffudd, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Aubrey Plaza, Patrick Warburton, Martin Starr, Luke Wilson, Matthew Morrison, Ashley Tisdale, Philip Baker Hall | Written by Chris Shafer, Paul Vicknair | Directed by Justin Reardon

Imagine if love was easy, we’d have less rom-coms for a start. These comedies that look at the complications of love tend to make themselves out to be the only movie that does the re-tread tale in this certain way, the truth being most follow a similar structure (because it works). The success of the film relies on making the audience care for the characters and charming the hopeless romantic in them into submission. The question is can Chris “Captain America” Evans charm you by Playing it Cool? The answer is probably yes.

Chris Evans plays a screenwriter given the task of writing a script for a rom-com. Being the jaded type he »

12 Movies You Didn’t Realise Were Just Ripping Off Video Games

2 March 2015 5:25 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios & Konami

The video game medium is frequently said to owe a lot to cinema, given how so many games attempt to evoke the style of a classic Hollywood movie: after all, is Uncharted really anything more than a modern Indiana Jones? However, as gaming has become a more socially acceptable and respected endeavour over the last decade, filmmakers have started taking it more seriously too, and as a result, some of Hollywood’s biggest movies appear to have drawn inspiration from classic games.

Once upon a time, the term “video game-esque” was used to refer to movies in only a strictly negative sense, but that simply isn’t true anymore. These 12 movies are either stylistically or thematically indebted to a famous video game, whether the creators themselves care to admit it or not. And no, the likes of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Act Of Valor won’t be appearing here, »

Watch the original Whiplash short starring J.K. Simmons

1 March 2015 12:08 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash was one of the most acclaimed films of last year, winning three Oscars (Best Supporting Actor, Best Film Editing and Best Sound Mixing), as well as further nominations for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

As it happens, its inclusion in the Adapted Screenplay category at the Oscars was due to Chazelle producing a portion of his original screenplay into a short film in order to drum up interest and investment for the full feature. The subsequent 18-minute short premiered at Sundance in 2013, with J.K. Simmons in the role of the teacher, and Johnny Simmons (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) as the drummer. It’s popped up on YouTube over the past few days, and you can check it out here…

Jessabelle is yet another in the long line of Blumhouse-inspired supernatural thrillers that have flooded the market since the success of the like of Insidious, The Conjuring et al. This time round we follow a young woman, the titular Jessabelle, returning to her childhood home in Louisiana in order to recuperate from a horrific car accident which killed her boyfriend – on the very day they were set to move in together (oh the irony). Once settled in, she comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return; and – in a complete twist – has no intention of letting her leave. Dun dun dun!!!

Ok, so maybe I’m being a little harsh on Jessabelle, »

Watch This Funny Trailer For Harry Potter, If Directed By Edgar Wright

29 January 2015 6:59 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Have you ever thought what it would be like if Harry Potter was recut in the style of Edgar Wright.s Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? The story about the "Boy Who Lived" does sort of have similar story elements to make this possible. There.s a love element, there are seven things that need to be squashed and there.s plenty of comic book-style action worthy of some graphic onomatopoeia. Well, some creative YouTube-r mashed both films together in one crazy cool video. Edgar Wright is a master of his craft, and replicating his style is no easy task. However, YouTube user The Unusual Suspect, the same guy who created that awesome Avengers-Watchmen mash-up, did a pretty stellar job. Much like how Scott Pilgrim was created, he blocked off some of the shots into comic book-style frames and used music, various camera angles and fast editing to bring life »

2015 Sundance Trading Card Series: #18. Chris Bergoch (Tangerine)

25 January 2015 5:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2014 discoveries”…

Chris Bergoch: I really enjoyed the pre-Broadway run of The Hunchback of Notre Dame at the La Jolla Playhouse. I try to keep up with all of Walt Disney Theatrical’s stage adaptations and I think this is their best yet. The show is dark, more in line with Victor Hugo’s novel, the new songs from Alan Menken fit seamlessly into his brooding 1996 soundtrack and the cast is brilliant — hope they make it to The Great White Way. Speaking of, I loved Idina Menzel in If/Then — she’s exhilarating to watch live. I thought Universal raised the bar for theme parks with the debut of Diagon Alley in Orlando last summer. It’s the single most immersive themed environment I’ve ever had the pleasure of being whisked away to and it’s also quite a stimulating place to sit down and write. »

Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’ gains synopsis, teases soundtrack

17 January 2015 8:47 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It seems like everything is moving along swiftly for Edgar Wright after his abrupt departure from Marvel’s Ant-Man as now the British director has released the first synopsis for his next film, which includes the possible leading man.

Variety reported the first synopsis for Wright’s Baby Driver on Friday, which is a project that the director has been working on for a long time. According to the site, the film “follows a talented, young getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.”

The site adds that this “young getaway driver” could be Fault in Our Stars and Men, Women, and Children star Ansel Elgort, who is said to be in early talks for the role. »

Trailer Trashin’: Meet the Size-Changing Avenger in Ant-Man

14 January 2015 1:57 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s not even halfway through January, dear readers, and we’ve already seen trailers for many of the year’s big movies. Such is the case with this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column, which examines our first look at Marvel’s upcoming July release Ant-Man.

Premise: Petty thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must aid his mentor Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology – which allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength – from various new threats, and plot a heist that will save the world.

My take: It’s been a long, strange journey to the silver screen for Marvel’s size-changing hero Ant-Man. Marvel Studios began developing the project way back in 2006, when they hired English filmmaker Edgar Wright – the man who brought us Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010), and The World’s »

Ansel Elgort Will Be Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver

14 January 2015 8:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Edgar Wright and Marvel parted ways in a very public split related to script changes for Ant-Man, the beloved British helmer soon announced that he’d be taking on a much smaller-scale project for his next gig: crime-thriller Baby Driver, which Wright wrote for Working Title Films. Now, that film has taken a major leap forward with word that The Fault in Our Stars lead Ansel Elgort is in discussions to star.

Elgort, who came out of absolutely nowhere to co-star in the Carrie remake then quickly snag major roles in the Divergent franchise, teen sensation The Fault in Our Stars and Jason Reitman’s (meritless) Men, Women & Children, will play a getaway driver who relies on his own soundtrack to make him the best driver in the game. When he ends up in over his head working for a crime boss, he finds that the doomed heist he »

‘Parks and Recreation’ Final Season: Small Town, Big Futures For Stars

13 January 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Parks and Recreation” signs off on NBC at the end of next month, fans will say goodbye to the colorful residents of Pawnee. But there won’t be a need to bid farewell to the actors who played the characters they grew to love.

Even though “Parks” never emerged from Nielsen’s ratings cellar or garnered the industry awards it richly deserved, its exceptional ensemble has nonetheless made a huge mark in Hollywood. What launched as a star vehicle for Emmy-nominated “Saturday Night Live” veteran Amy Poehler quickly became a showcase for breakout talent Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Scott, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari and Rashida Jones.

“We collected a group of people at a really important time,” Poehler says. “I am the least surprised at how fancy and famous everyone is and has become. I felt that way about them and their talent since day one.”

‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ brings back the classic arcade game

9 January 2015 4:14 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Written by Edgar Wright and Michael Bacall

Directed by Edgar Wright

UK, USA, Japan 2010

When the film adaptation of Scott Pilgrim was released in 2010, it was like an explosion of colour and two-tone jingles. To the casual eye, the film is a classic – albeit awkward – love story between Scott (Michael Cera), a loveable loser, and the intriguing yet aloof Ramona Flowers (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). In order to date her, Scott has to defeat the League of Evil Exes - Ramona’s exes. All seven of them.

Scott Pilgrim’s overindulgence of video game references – both retro and lesser-known – not only places the film in a different league to the conventional comic-book/video-game film adaptation, but its distinctive blend of styles manages to bridge the generation gap, widening its appeal.

When we talk about arcade games, the memories of tiny joysticks, frantic shuffling in pockets for »

Watch: The Best Films of the Decade So Far

9 January 2015 9:17 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Considering it is the halfway point in this current decade of ours, 2014 is about as good a time as many to begin making "Best of the Decade (So Far)" lists -- which I have actually attempted to do over on Letterboxd -- and it seems the fine folks over at streaming site and film blog Fandor agree, as just yesterday video essayist Kevin B. Lee posted a video that counts down the 26 best films of the decade so far, as determined by a poll he took of "290 film critics and movie lovers on Twitter and Facebook." Lee took to Slate yesterday to explain the results a bit more in-depth, including the importance of social media played in the poll, how Cannes was a better predictor than the Oscars, how movies' fortunes rise and fall over time, and more. It's an interesting read, so if you want to check it out, »

Step ‘Into The Woods’ And Discover Anna Kendrick’s Top 5 Best Moments

9 January 2015 3:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It may be too soon to say, but I believe 2015 to be the year of Anna Kendrick. Having established herself as a great support actress in the Twilight Saga, she’s gone on to steal the show in numerous films, including Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Paranorman and End Of Watch, managing to the pull the limelight away from her more central co-stars.

This year sees the release of six new titles starring Kendrick, the first being the live-action Disney musical Into The Woods, and to celebrate we are looking back at five of Anna’s greatest career choices.

5. Drinking Buddies

(Dir: Joe Swanberg, 2013)

Drinking Buddies saw Anna star alongside Olivia Wilde, Ron Livingston, and New Girl favourite Jake Johnson, in an almost fly-on-the-wall look at how friendships play out between men and women – particularly when they are best friends and co-workers – and their respective partners. Anna features as Jill, »

See Paul Rudd Ride a Giant Bug in 'Ant-Man' Trailer

7 January 2015 6:12 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Nearly 13 months after it was first revealed that Paul Rudd would suit up in Ant-Man, a two-minute teaser trailer is offering the first real look at Marvel's microscopic superhero. Presented as a heist film packaged within a superhero saga, the Ant-Man clip also showcases some of the humor you'd expect from a movie starring Rudd.

In the film, Rudd portrays Scott Lang, a small-time thief who's recruited by Michael Douglas' Dr. Henry Pym to "become the hero" and "be the Ant-Man;" Pym himself creates the technology but is too old to wear the suit. »
