Film Review: ‘The Scribbler’

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite a game lead performance from smallscreen star Katie Cassidy (“Arrow”) as a young woman with multiple personality disorder and an incorrigible punk attitude, this latest low-budget outing from helmer John Suits simply doesn’t have the imagination or resources necessary to pull off its clumsy stabs at visual pizzazz. Instead, the result resembles what Zack Snyder’s maligned curio “Sucker Punch” might have looked like if it had been made by “Sharknado” producers the Asylum. Prefabricated for a cult following unlikely to ever materialize, “The Scribbler” faces a bleak future beyond the margins of a Sept. 19 day-and-date limited theatrical/VOD release followed by a homevid bow one month later.

Schaffer adapts his own source material here, opting to tell a paper-thin story in a frustratingly convoluted way. Pic opens with Suki (Cassidy) defending herself to a crusty cop (Michael Imperioli) and sympathetic criminal psychologist (Eliza Dushku) after a string »

Scott Glenn cast as Stick in Marvel’s Daredevil

15 September 2014 10:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daredevil’s martial arts mentor Stick will be played by Scott Glenn

With Marvel’s Netflix-based Defenders universe not expected to materialise on-screen until next year, it’s nice to have some reassurance that the constituent shows are pushing ahead at a healthy pace.

Today, we’ve learnt that Stick, martial arts mentor to Daredevil, has been cast. Teaching The Man Without Fear to punch, kick and other important things will be veteran screen actor Scott Glenn.

It’s likely you’ll recognise Glenn from somewhere. In a prolific career spanning back to the 1970s he’s played Lieutenant Colby in Apocalypse Now, Jack Crawford in The Silence Of The Lambs, Captain Mancuso in The Hunt For Red October, Wise Man in Sucker Punch and Ezra Kramer in the Bourne series.

Stick first appeared in the comics in 1981’s Daredevil #176, and has acute control of his senses as well as telepathic and life-draining abilities. »

Jarvis Serenades the Stars of God Help the Girl

3 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

- By Jarvis

I have an obvious obsession with anything remotely musical, so you can imagine just how excited I was when I ran into the cast of the new movie God Help the Girl. I mean, Omg!

I met Emily Browning, who I loved in Sucker Punch, Olly Alexander from Skins and my favorite new band, Years & Years, and Hannah Murray from my hands down favorite show, Game of Thrones. All three, together in a movie musical and also in my little elevator. Be still, my beating heart!

Meeting one celebrity is enough to get me humming, but three celebrities practically calls for an opera. So of course, I sang a few questions to them, and thank God they sang back. Though I was totally stalking them, I felt like we were four best friends catching up in a elevator. We talked about their adorable new movie, what it was like filming in Scotland, »

Lone Star Cinema: Spy Kids

27 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

When the recent news broke that Alexa Vega will play a recurring character on the upcoming season of country music soap Nashville, now seemed like a perfect time to revisit the original Spy Kids. I tend to picture Vega as she appeared in the Robert Rodriguez film, but she has grown much since then. She's even married... twice.

In 2001, she and co-star Daryl Sabara (whose first role was as Murphy's baby on '90s cultural touchstone, Murphy Brown) played Carmen and Juni Cortez, troubled private-school kids. Their parents Ingrid (Carla Gugino, Karen Sisco, Sucker Punch) and Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) are consultants who have not yet admitted to the children that they used to be secret agents (who met cute at the Hotel Belen, better known as the Omni Hotel downtown). 

When evil genius/children's TV show host Floop (a colorful Alan Cumming, The Good Wife, X-Men 2) and his Minion (Tony Shalhoub, »

After close to a decade of waiting, we finally return to Basin City this weekend with the arrival Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long-awaited sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and to coincide with the release of the film we thought we’d test your knowledge of the characters inhabiting the world of Sin City with the latest Sunday Quiz. If you’re yet to see A Dame to Kill For, you may want to do so first, as it does include a couple of characters from the sequel, but if you have – or you think you’re good to go anyway – then take the quiz below to see if you can name all fifteen characters, and don’t forget to share your results…

Question 1 Dwight Hartigan Marv

Lady Gaga poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

22 August 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coinciding with its U.S. release today, a new character poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has been released online featuring Lady Gaga as Bertha; check it out below, and if you’ve not done so already you can read our ★★★★ review of the film here…

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

The HeyUGuys Interview: Emily Browning on singing in God Help the Girl, and going cockney for Legend

21 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It’s safe to say that Australian actress Emily Browning is no stranger to nudity in film, bearing all in the likes of Summer in February, to a brave, somewhat audacious performance in Julia Leigh’s uninhibited drama Sleeping Beauty. Yet for the 25-year-old, she admits that having to sing live in the quaint musical God Help the Girl was by far the more terrifying experience.

We had the great pleasure of sitting down with the talented actress to discuss her latest project – featuring songs from indie pop outfit Belle & Sebastian, having been written and directed by the band’s lead singer Stuart Murdoch, and when asked which she found more nerve-wracking, with little hesitation she replied, “ God Help the Girl for sure, absolutely. I guess you’re protected by your character, so when I did those scenes for Sleeping Beauty, it wasn’t me, especially because that character is »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For review: Was it worth the wait?

19 August 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Directors: Frank Miller, Robert Rodriguez; Screenwriter: Frank Miller; Starring: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Rosario Dawson, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Dennis Haysbert, Lady Gaga, Christopher Lloyd; Running time: 102 mins; Certificate: 18

Nine years after Sin City amazed and enthralled us, the long-awaited sequel has finally landed. Gone is the freshness of the stunning comic book aesthetic. Absent is the narrative cohesion and zest that bound the disparate tales together in one anthology. Yet the class of the impressive cast and the immersive film noir atmosphere just about sustains our interest in a film that's most striking visual effect is the hair on Bruce Willis's head.

Many characters from the original reappear in A Dame to Kill For, including Mickey Rourke's Marv, Jessica Alba's Nancy and Willis's hirsute detective John Hartigan. A re-watch of Sin City is advisable to untangle some of the timelines, »

Banned TV spot for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

14 August 2014 1:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve already seen a poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For that was deemed too hot for the MPAA, and a ‘banned’ TV spot for the eagerly-anticipated sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City has now made its way online, and once again it’s Eva Green’s breasts causing the problem. Check out the Nsfw TV spot (which contains nudity, and was surely never intended for TV) below, courtesy of Moviefone…

Letters: female action stars, Kurt Russell in a dress, spoilers

14 August 2014 2:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Our non-interactive letters page returns, and we're chatting action, oil, fighting and cinema tickets...

Regular readers may have spotted that this is now the fourth appearance of our letters page, which we all appear to be lumbered with now. It's part of our quest to be the most old-fashioned, non-interactive website on the planet. Basically, you send us a letter, by email or post, and we answer it, and leave it at that. Bonus points for writing in with Grange Hill questions, which nobody has yet.

But you've written in with the following. So here's our latest mailbag...

Name That Film!

I am usually pretty good at investigating and finding obscure films and TV shows from my childhood. But this one eludes me. I can find no reference to it anywhere. I don’t know the title but I have vivid images of this possible film/teleplay in mind.

Zack Snyder's Daily Life

13 August 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Let's face it, we all love Zack Snyder. Some of us love hating him, but that's the same thing. The opposite of love is not hate but indifference, someone wise once told me. We probably all want to know something more about this stunning, handsome man that gave us unforgettable experiences such as 300, Watchmen, Man of Steel, and Sucker Punch (I said unforgettable). A man full of energy, who, according to Scoot McNairy, does a lot of things during his day. Well, with that in mind, I used my non-existent inside source at Warner Bros. Entertainment to learn something about him. Here I give you what it's likely to be Zack "The Pimp" Snyder's typical day.   0:00 - 3:00 Am Dream about flyng skinny hot young women fighting against Nazi-Dinosaurs with lasers, all covered with a grey filter. 3:00 Am Wake up. 3:01 Am Do 50 push-ups,50 pull-ups, 100 crunches, 200 squats.
