‘Deep Space’ DVD Review

Stars: Sunny Mabrey, Lance Broadway, T.J. Hoban, Christian Pitre, Mykel Shannon Jenkins, Ursula Mills, Weetus Cren, Michael Nouri | Written and Directed by Ian Truitner

The deep space mining vessel Atromitos has been adrift for two years. It is suspected that most of the crew had brutally killed each other for reasons unknown. Genetically modified “superior” humans are sent to investigate the marooned ship and recover the only survivor. Under the stress of isolation in outer space, the crew begins to exhibit unexpected character flaws. Cracks appear within the group which threaten the success of the mission and their chances of getting home alive.

The complete antithesis your typical direct to market sci-fi fare, Deep Space is one of those sci-fi movies that, despite using a lot of familiar tropes and cliches, still manages to rise above the generic flotsum of the Dtv sci-fi market. It does so in the best

Creepy Real-Life Robots React to the Morgan Trailer

Creepy Real-Life Robots React to the Morgan Trailer
What if robots watched movies? Two of the world's most advanced robots, magicLab's Edi (Electronic Deceptive Intelligence) and the University of Pisa's Face (Facial Automation for Conveying Emotions), viewed the trailer for Morgan. Watch what happened next in the video below. It's actually pretty creepy.

In Morgan, A corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent "human," who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger. And as you can see, these robots are just as enthralled with the story as advanced audiences have been.

You can take a closer look at the full trailer by itself if you missed that when it launched earlier this summer. Morgan marks the feature directorial debut of Luke Scott, celebrated commercial director and son of legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott.

First Look at Kate Mara and Paul Giamatti in Sci-Fi Thriller Morgan

First Look at Kate Mara and Paul Giamatti in Sci-Fi Thriller Morgan
Last March, Kate Mara signed on to star in 20th Century Fox's sci-fi thriller Morgan, which marks the feature directorial debut of Luke Scott, celebrated commercial director and son of legendary filmmaker Ridley Scott.

Anya Taylor-Joy, who had a breakout performance in this year's horror-thriller The Witch, is playing this artificial being dubbed Morgan, with Rose Leslie,

Kate Mara On For Luke Scott's Morgan

Kate Mara On For Luke Scott's Morgan
Like the genetic matter those brainy Engineers scatter about in Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s DNA is a potent filmmaking force in its own right. Two of his offspring, oldest son Jake (Welcome To The Rileys, Plunkett & Macleane) and daughter Jordan (Cracks), have already directed movies and now the third, Luke Scott, is joining them with his debut film Morgan. The sci-fi thriller has just added Kate Mara to its cast list.Mara will be joined by newcomer Anya Taylor-Joy, who impressed Sundance audiences with her turn in buzzed-about horror The Witch. Morgan's plot focuses on a corporate risk-management consultant, although the actual corporate risk-management depicted on screen will likely be kept to a minimum when the consultant is summoned to a remote lab to evaluate an artificial being with a view to its termination.There’s shades of Ex Machina in Seth Owen’s 2014 Black List script, although it also taps into Ridley’s A.

Exodus: Gods and Kings banned in Egypt for being inaccurate

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings has already faced some controversy for an all white cast. Now it is being reported by the BBC that the film has been banned in Egypt for being inaccurate to the countries history.

The head of the censorship board has said the film depicts inaccuracies in the countries history including Jews as having built the Pyramids, and that an earthquake, not a miracle by Moses, caused the Red Sea to part.

The film is also reportedly going to be banned in Morocco and it is expected to be banned in several countries across the Middle East. The film only made $24 million on its opening weekend and is currently shy of breaking even from the global box office.

Scott Foundas’ Top 10 Films of 2014

Scott Foundas’ Top 10 Films of 2014
It was a year of many tortured geniuses onscreen — Alan Turing, Stephen Hawking, J.M.W. Turner, Brian Wilson — and behind the scenes, where directors like Bong Joon-ho, James Gray and Paul Schrader fought producers and distributors over final cut, and the right to see their films properly released. Of course, the very idea of distribution has become nearly as diffuse in the digital era as that of film itself, a material on which few movies are still made and even fewer shown — unless you happen to be Paul Thomas Anderson, Quentin Tarantino or Christopher Nolan, who earned the ire of some theater owners when he demanded they reinstall 35mm projectors if they wanted to screen his “Interstellar” two days early. In light of the film’s $600 million worldwide gross (and counting), one can only say: poor them.

Speaking of “Interstellar,” if there was one undeniable constant at the movies in 2014, it was time,
