Film Review: The Voices

6 February 2015 9:50 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The new dark comedy "The Voices" opens this week in limited release. It is directed by Marjane Satrapi, of "Persepolis" fame, in her first solo helming effort. Ryan Reynolds stars as Jerry, an upbeat factory worker hiding a dark past and an even bigger current secret. You see Jerry hears voices in his head, and those those voices belong to his pets, a cat and a dog. The dog is quite understanding and helpful to Jerry, but the cat, Mr. Whiskers, has other ideas. He implores Jerry to kill, and it's not long before he follows through on the cat's orders. At first, Jerry is reluctant to murder, but once he becomes embroiled in trouble, it's much easier to stab away his troubles rather than try to explain them.

Jerry's coworkers and objects of his affection at various points in the film are played by Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick. »

Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is an affable singleton who works on the factory floor at a bathtub factory, ever eager to get along with his co-workers, especially Fiona, (Gemma Arterton) and Lisa (Anna Kendrick) from accounts. After work Jerry goes home to his pet cat, Mr. Whiskers, and loyal dog Bosco, where the three of them hang out, watch TV and discuss the day’s events. »

27 January 2015 10:02 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We’re back with another trio of trailers, this time featuring parkour zombie survival skills in the launch trailer for Techland’s Dying Light video game, talking pets and dark secrets in the UK trailer for The Voices (starring Ryan Reynolds), and a tease of the dangerous dystopian backdrop of the 1980s-esque Turbo Kid.

“Dying Light is a first-person, action survival horror video game with a harrowing day-night cycle set in a vast open world. Currently under development by Techland, the game will be available in 2014 [now 2015] for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4, plus Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system, and PC.

During the day, players will traverse an expansive urban environment overrun by a vicious outbreak, scavenging the world for supplies and crafting weapons to defend against the growing infected population. At night, the hunter becomes the hunted, as the infected become aggressive and more dangerous. Most »

Sundance 2015: 'Mississippi Grind' and 'The End of the Tour' are two for the road

25 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

There’s a specific internal logic that governs road movies. Two characters—it is almost always just two—vibe off one another in the confined space of a car, revealing essential selves, embarking on what’s inevitably a journey of self-discovery, moving ever forward, together. The genre has become something of a Sundance trope over the years, thanks to movies such as Transamerica, Liar’s Dice and The Trip to Italy. And living up to that expectation, two of the buzzier entries in the fest’s early days happen to feature duos traveling for extended periods in cars on, yes, »

Review: 'Slow West' features a gruff Michael Fassbender and absurdist Western violence

25 January 2015 12:20 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City. This doesn't happen often, but I had to stay after the Sundance Film Festival premiere screening of "Slow West" to listen to the Q&A with director John MacLean to get a sense of what the intended tone was for his World Cinema Dramatic Competition entry.  Large portions of the second half of the 1870-set Western made me laugh, sometimes fairly hard, but I couldn't quite tell if the aspiration was parody or misgauged sincerity. The answer? Neither. Maclean said he was going for something almost fairy-tale-esque at the bloody climax of "Slow West," which means that something heightened was an aspiration, even if fairy tales very rarely leave me laughing.  Sometimes you're just not receiving signals on the frequency that a movie is transmitting and I accept that just may be the case, especially since the first questioner praised "Slow West" for its realism. Realism, eh? The »

Review: Forgettable Crime Flick 'Son Of A Gun' Starring Ewan McGregor, Alicia Vikander, & Brenton Thwaites

20 January 2015 3:10 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 BFI London Festival. One of the most exciting movements in cinema in the last decade or two or so has come from Australia. Mostly (but not exclusively) tied to the production company Blue Tongue Films (which includes luminaries like Joel Edgerton, David Michod, and Spencer Susser), but also encompassing experienced figures like Andrew Dominik, Cate Shortland, Julia Leigh, Justin Kurzel, and John Hillcoat, the films are loosely tied together by the simple mark of quality, with great movies like "Animal Kingdom," "Snowtown Murders," "The Proposition" "Somersault," and "Chopper" emerging from the land down under since the dawn of the 21st century. Could the next name to join them be Julius Avery? The director won the Jury Prize at Cannes for his short "Jerrycan," and now makes his directorial debut with crime thriller "Son Of A Gun," which has managed to attract an. »

Jason Bateman to Lead Joel Edgerton's Directorial Debut 'Weirdo'

15 January 2015 8:14 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though Joel Edgerton is a very accomplished actor who has starred in smaller films like Animal Kingdom to big flashy numbers like The Great Gatsby, he's looking to get behind the camera next. Deadline has word that Edgerton is set to make his directorial debut with an indie drama tentatively known around Hollywood as Weirdo (though it remains untitled) that will be produced by Blumhouse Productions, the same company behind horror hits like The Purge and Paranormal Activity. In addition, Edgerton has lined up a surprising lead actor with Jason Bateman taking the lead role alongside Rebecca Hall. More below! The film follows Bateman and Hall as a husband and wife who are looking for a fresh start in a new town, hoping to reinvigorate their relationship. But they find their plan disrupted by a "friend" from the past, resulting in a "a chilling and suspenseful journey" that reveals, as many dramatic thrillers do, »

The top 20 underappreciated films of 2014

6 January 2015 4:41 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A new year of films may beckon, but there are lots of movies from 2014 you may have missed. Here's a list of 2014's most underappreciated...

There was no shortage of magnificent films in 2014 of every kind, from the expensive and explosive to the low-key and experimental. But it's a sad fact of life that not all movies do as well as they should, either because of poor distribution or simply because they'd been released at the same time as something much bigger and more star-laden.

While the list below is by no means an exhaustive one - there are plenty of great films from 2014 that we're still getting around to seeing - it's our attempt to highlight a few fine pieces of work that didn't get quite as much love as they deserved.

So without further ado - and in no particular order - we'll start with a stunning »

The Rover DVD Review

5 January 2015 6:50 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: David Michôd

Starring: Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson, Scoot McNairy, David Field, Tawanda Manyimo, Gillian Jones

Running Time: 103 minutes

Certificate: 15

Having received critical acclaim for his 2010 release Animal Kingdom, director David Michôd definitely set himself a challenge to replicate his previous success. However, choosing to return to the film world with The Rover was one of the smartest moves he could’ve made.

Set in a dystopian Australia, Guy Pearce (who previously collaborated with Michôd on Animal Kingdom) features as quiet loner Eric, a man inadvertently drawn into a world of violence and desperation. After his car is stolen by three criminals, Eric sets out to seek revenge and claim back what is rightfully his. However, on his journey he comes across the injured Rey (Robert Pattinson), the brother of one of the criminals, desperate to get back to the gang despite their attempts to lose him. Now lumbered with a passenger, »
