Split 2: M. Night Shyamalan Writing The Climax Of The Upcoming Sequel!

We may very well be in the middle of one of the greatest career renaissances in recent memory. M. Night Shyamalan is a filmmaker who started off his career with a bang. The Sixth Sense is still a flick that is highly relevant in the pop culture zeitgeist, and Shyamalan went to follow up that strong film with Unbreakable and Signs, proving that he was no one-hit wonder.

Of course, you can’t bring up Shyamalan without also bringing up the slump he fell into. There may be some debate as to when it started. Some say it started with Signs, some say The Village, but most can agree that his work started to get universally panned around the time of Lady in the Water. From The Happening through After Earth, it wasn’t clear if he would ever come back as the same creative force as he once was.

Video Game Review – Knee Deep

Emma Withington reviews Knee Deep

As you settle in to your front row seat and choose how you spend those idle, thumb twiddling moments before the curtain rises – read the playbill? Get a snack? Tune the orchestra? – you are blissfully unaware of the consequences a simple ‘night at the theatre’ will hold.

Knee Deep is a ‘Swamp Noir’, adventure, indie, murder mystery, sci-fi thriller in three acts – phew, quite the mouthful – and is brought to you by Prologue Games and Wales Interactive. You influence the lives of three protagonists with cat-killing curiosity; a tenacious blogger, a reporter at the end of the line, and a desperate detective. In backwater Florida they get caught up in the mysterious death of second-rate actor Tag Kern and the curious case of Cypress Knee in the nighttime; it’s up to those with nothing left to lose to seek out the truth.

‘Another beautiful Florida sunset,

Flickering Myth’s id Software Retrospective: Doom

In the buildup to the release of the new Doom game, Shaun Eddleston takes a retrospective look at each of id Software’s Fps games series. Next up is the original Doom and its sequels…

1993. A year that saw artists such as Whitney Houston and Meat Loaf dominate the UK & Us charts, while Jurassic Park made box office history on a global scale. Various point & click classics such as Day of The Tentacle: Maniac Mansion and Sam & Max Hit The Road saw releases, as well as Myst, one of the biggest selling PC games in history.

An unstoppable force also arrived that year that completely eviscerated all competition and transformed pop culture forever. That force was Doom.

Set on the moons orbiting Mars, Doom sees players assume the role of an unnamed space marine, popularly known as “Doomguy” by fans, as he fights his way through hordes of demons that

Life & Death: Ranking the Films of Alejandro González Iñárritu

Most filmmakers spend the duration of a career emphasizing one walk of life over the infinite others, but occasionally there is an artist who seeks the truth through universality: the common thread that unifies a Mexican intersection, a Moroccan village, or an American theatre into a snapshot of what it truly means to be alive. Director Alejandro González Iñárritu is one such artist, pursuing the crevices of the human soul for nearly twenty years, and doggedly striving to capture fear, hope, and mortality on the silver screen. Some label it pessimistic cinema, but in the words of Iñárritu idol Oscar Wilde, “A pessimist is nothing but a well informed optimist.”

Starting his own production company in the 1990s, the Mexico City native would spend much of the decade churning out advertisements and short films – many of which, including Detras del Dinero (1995) and El Timbre (1996), provided glimpses of the director’s penchant for humanized drama.

Knee Deep Act 2: Festival Review

Knee Deep Act 1: Wonderland released on Steam on July 6th to great fanfare within a few niche circles of the gaming community, and a few criticisms from adventure game fans. Developer Prologue Games have doubled down on the criticisms of the first part, and in Knee Deep Act 2: Festival, they’ve done everything they can to polish up the series and fix the minor niggles to make the second entry something truly special. For the most part, their efforts have worked.

Knee Deep takes you to the town of Cypress Knee. A backwater, redneck stereotype in the bayous of Florida, you take on the role of three very distinct characters. Hipster blogger, Romana Teaque, beleaguered newspaper journnalist Jack Bellet, and private investigator K.C Gaddis. What’s great about hopping between the three characters is that the wide range of dialogue options really gives you the opportunity to

Knee Deep Act 1: Wonderland – Review

Knee Deep Act 1: Wonderland is part one of a trio of narrative-driven adventure titles from indie developer Prologue Games. While Telltale has long had a stranglehold on the adventure genre, Knee Deep is entirely unique in its style, harking back to the glory days of classic adventure games like Grim Fandango and the Monkey Island series. While the variation in its text-heavy, pulpy world isn’t always successful, it’s different enough that you should stand up and take note.

Knee Deep takes place in the murky depths of the Florida bayou, in a sleepy little backwater town called Cypress Knee. The town is as much a character as the central trio you play as, who are markedly different but all there for just one reason – to find the truth. The story opens with the death of Tag Kern, a Hollywood celebrity and eccentric who had converted to the cult-like Church of Us.

Patrick Wolf to score Noel Coward biopic starring Glee's Chris Colfer

Patrick Wolf to score Noel Coward biopic starring Glee's Chris Colfer
Patrick Wolf will score a new Noel Coward biopic.

B Good Picture Company's film based on the early life of Coward was announced at this year's Cannes Film Festival, and has Glee's Chris Colfer attached to star as the playwright.

"I am so thrilled for my first film soundtrack composition to be about Noel Coward's early life. We both grew up in the same parts of south west London, and began our journeys onto the stage and into writing at the same precocious age," Wolf said.

"The script, director, Noel Coward Estate and the cast attached combined are already in perfect synergy to make this something magical. It's an honour to be the next piece of such a legendary puzzle."

Provisionally titled Noel, the screenplay has been written by Martin Sherman and will be directed by Joe Stephenson, his second feature following his debut Chicken.

Two Rode Together | Blu-ray Review

Born of the famously turbulent, yet ultimately fruitful collaboration between John Ford and James Stewart, Two Rode Together stands as compromised material. Ford took on the project strictly for cash shortly after the death of his friend and colleague Ward Bond passed away, sending the film into much darker territory than the director had ever or would ever normally work within. The picture was based on Will Cook’s novel “Comanche Captives”, material Ford apparently thought was less than intriguing western revisionism, even after bringing on his frequent collaborator Frank S. Nugent (The Searchers, The Quiet Man, Mister Roberts) to make something of the screenplay. Though certainly not as piercing as some of his work with his male muse John Wayne, the film remains a solid entry into the nihilistic anti-heroic take on the western.

As his most selfishly styled self, Stewart plays Marshal Guthrie McCabe, a public figure perfectly

Joss Whedon Wanted The Star Wars: Episode VII Gig Before Remembering He Had The Avengers Sequel

"I'm as angry as you should be," Whedon said about the subject of his unavailability. "When I heard that I was like, 'I wonder... no, I really can't do that. Oh, I already have a job.' I wouldn't clear the Avengers. I'm having so much fun with that sequel right now, just with the script, that I couldn't imagine not doing it." Knee deep in the S.H.I.E.L.D. television series for ABC, Whedon told CNN that the show is reminding him how "taxing television can be". "I'd forgotten how much work TV was so I'm cranky at everybody all the time," said the director of The Avengers. "But it's really fun. We have a beautiful ensemble and we're having so much fun coming up with the stories. It really is like working at Marvel Comics, which was a dream of mine as a kid because this little book 'S.

Ruth Negga: 'I'm not in any rush to get anywhere'

Ruth Negga won a host of admirers with her portrayal of Shirley Bassey on BBC TV last year. Now she's set to break through with a major Channel 4 spy drama and a role in Steve McQueen's next movie

Ruth Negga looks over her shoulder. "Hold on a minute," she says, leaning back to peer beneath our cafeteria table on an upper floor of the Riba building in central London. She bends to look under her chair. "Where is my movie career?"

The 30-year-old actor is clowning, and this is her way of telling me I've touched on a subject that has come up before. A best newcomer nominee at the Olivier Awards back in 2003, Negga has had memorable success in the theatre across the intervening decade, particularly at the National: Aricia next to Helen Mirren's Phèdre, Ophelia opposite Rory Kinnear's Hamlet. And she's done plenty of

Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson

Banana Pancakes is one of my all time favorite songs. It gets me so in the mood to ride bikes or take a walk to breakfast on a beautiful sunny day. Jack Johnson has the best beachy vibe on all of his albums. His acoustic version of Better Together is also a great bonfire song.

Chariot by Gavin Degraw

Whenever I hear Chariot it takes me right back to the summer road trips to San Diego I would take to compete in horse shows. The piano in this song is really pretty and I love the rawness of [link
