The Amazing Spider-Man 2 review: black and white and web all over

18 April 2014 3:08 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Suffers badly by comparison with the cogent, witty Avengers flicks. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s. I’m “biast” (pro): like the cast

I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t a huge fan of the first one; the trailer looked generic

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Two years on from the first pointless reboot of the Spider-Man story — a mere five years after the previous version had wrapped up — the pointless sequel has arrived. Except now we’ve had two more years of cogent, witty Avengers flicks, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 suffers badly by comparison. This looks like a throwback to a time when comic book movies were kiddie stuff and nothing else. This feels like a campy Saturday-morning cartoon left over from the 1970s, and not the smart, relevant science-fiction action drama the genre has matured into on the big screen. »

First Look at Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson in Alex Garland’s Sci-Fi Thriller Ex MacHina

14 April 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first image has arrived from 28 Days Later and Sunshine screenwriter Alex Garland’s directorial debut Ex Machina.  The psychological thriller revolves around a billionaire programmer who invites a young employee to spend a week at his remote estate and to participate in a test involving an artificially intelligent female robot that he invented.  Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson star, and based on this first image it appears that Isaac is playing the inventor.  The actor previously told us that the pic is a “provocative, sci-fi sexual thriller” and described it as “a great three-hander with people torturing each other with their brains, in rooms.”  It’s certainly a fascinating premise, and Garland’s track record as a screenwriter (which also includes Never Let Me Go and Dredd) is great so I’m eager to see how he fares in the director’s chair. Hit the jump to check out the first Ex Machina image. »

First Look: Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac in Sci-Fi 'Ex Machina'

14 April 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though Dredd may not have fared as well as some hoped, writer Alex Garland is set to redeem himself by taking a turn directing with the sci-fi flick Ex Machina. Garland behind the scripts for Never Let Me Go, Sunshine and 28 Days Later, all unique films with great stories. As for Ex Machina, this one follows a love triangle between two men and a beautiful robot girl. That's definitely unlike anything we've seen before, and now we have a first look at the film with stars Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Domhnall Gleeson (About Time). No sign of the robot girl (Alicia Vikander) just yet, but we're certainly intrigued. Here's the first look at Alex Garland's Ex Machina (via The Playlist): Ex Machina is written and directed by Alex Garland (writer of Dredd, Sunshine, 28 Days Later). Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), a 24 year old coder at the world’s largest internet company, »

UK industry reacts to Tessa Ross leaving Film4

26 March 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Kevin Macdonald, Stephen Woolley, Ken Loach and others speak about their respect for Tessa Ross.

Film4 head Tessa Ross’ decision to step down from her job next September (story here) has taken the UK film industry by surprise.

Leading industry figures have been lavish in their praise of Ross’ achievements since she joined Channel 4 in 2000. (She became Head of Film4 in 2003, followed by Controller of Film and Drama in 2008.) Some have also expressed wariness that a period of instability could follow her departure from the Channel.

Oscar winning director Kevin Macdonald, in post-production on Film4-backed The Black Sea and who also has a new feature on the Lockerbie bombing in development at Film4 with producer Christopher Young, acknowledged he had no prior inkling of Ross’ plans. “I only heard this morning. Tessa sent an email saying what was happening. I think it is going to leave a huge hole in British film that will be »

The Definitive Kubrickian Films: 40-31

4 March 2014 9:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we spend a month looking at the great Stanley Kubrick, we can also look at the filmmakers who were clearly influenced by Kubrick. “Kubrickian” films tend to exercise incredible control of the camera, are extremely ambitious, tend to deal with much weightier themes, and always maintain a sense of mystery, like a there’s an invisible fog always hovering over the film. This list could be sharply focused on about five directors working today but, though a number of these filmmakers appear in this list of 40, we’re spreading the wealth a bit. Let’s get to it.

40. Watchmen (2009)

Directed by Zack Snyder

What makes it Kubrickian? It’s surprisingly cold and detail-oriented, unlike most of Zack Snyder’s other work (well, detail-oriented in a positive way). Watchmen is based on the acclaimed graphic novel of the same name by David Gibbons and Alan Moore, about a desolate alternative »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2010

26 February 2014 2:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 27 Feb 2014 - 05:54

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2010, and another 25 overlooked gems...

By 2010, Hollywood’s obsession with 3D movies was in full swing. James Cameron’s Avatar may have given audiences a taste of what the cutting edge of stereoscope could look like, but it has to be said that the movies ushered into cinemas in its wake were a decidedly mixed bunch. Toy Story 3's 3D was extraordinarily effective, yet Clash Of The Titans looked like a blurry mess. How To Train Your Dragon came to life in its flying sequences, but the less said about the horribly murky Last Airbender, the better.

Unless we’re mistaken, none of the movies on this list were shot or released in 3D, and few of them did particularly stellar business. A few got a certain amount of critical acclaim, »

2014 Best Super Bowl Commercials features ads directed by David Gordon Green, Nicolas Winding Refn and more

3 February 2014 7:48 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With 111.5-million U.S. viewers, and a further 7.3-million in Canada, Super Bowl Xlviii was the most-watched in history. The commercial spots were the most expensive for any TV broadcast in any given year, and there were plenty of big name stars and A-list directors who helped create these very expensive advertisements. John Hillcoat, director of The Road, helmed the spot for Coke. The minute long ad featuring a multilingual rendition of “America the Beautiful” was refreshing to many, but left a bitter taste in the mouth of conservative pundits. Bruce Willis and Fred Armisen get close for Hyundai, and prolific music video and film director, Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go), re-teamed with U2 for the Bank of America “Invisible spot”(Romanek directed U2 in an Apple commercial in 2004). The small screen rarely attracts this many big screen filmmakers in one night, so we decided to vote on our »

3 February 2014 3:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I usually really enjoy the commercials during the Super Bowl, but this year it seemed like most of them were just as bad as the game. I thought I'd do a compilation post featuring several of the commercials that aired during the game. I have to point out, though, that the Axe commercial was so laughably bad. You might be surprised by some of the directors that made these commercial as well. What were your favorite and least favorite commercials during the big game?

Carey Mulligan

18 January 2014 1:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

She likes dark, difficult characters. She doesn't like questions about her faith, her pop star husband, pet pigs, politics…

• The Coen brothers talk about the film

• Free audio download from the film

• Review: Inside Llewyn Davis

Something strange is going on. Carey Mulligan has requested me as her interviewer of choice. I'm not sure why, but this kind of thing doesn't happen often. If ever. One of Britain's brightest stars has insisted on unburdening herself to yours truly. We've never met. I'm baffled, but excited. Maybe she's got something she wants to get off her chest and sees me as the father confessor of celebrity journalism. I'll take that.

Mulligan, 28, doesn't give many interviews. Nor, for that matter, does she make many films. While in-demand actors churn out movies by the dozen, she is ever so picky about her parts. After being Oscar-nominated for her breakthrough film, An Education, in »

Mark Romanek to Direct Casey Affleck in Boston Strangler

9 January 2014 12:30 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Never Let Me Go director Mark Romanek is in talks to bring to life one of the most famous serial killers in U.S. history… the Boston Strangler. Casey Affleck is already set to star in the film as a detective hell-bent on bringing down the killer. 

The film is said to have the same tone as the movies Se7en and Zodiac. The story "follows an ambitious detective who is willing to risk career and life in a race to bring down the most notorious sexual predator of the day, while battling a political cover-up by corrupt politicians and lawyers trying to save their careers. Boston pols were desperate for a conviction; the early murders centered on older women living alone, but when police found a 21-year old victim, the public panicked. Soon, guns and door locks became scarce in Boston and pressure grew to end the hysteria by locking up someone. »

The director of Never Let Me Go and One Hour Photo, Mark Romanek, is in talks to take charge of a new film about the Boston Strangler which is set to star Casey Affleck, Variety reports.

Already the source of a 1968 film, which was criticised at the time as an example of exploitation, the case of the strangler remains one of the most terrifying in the history of American serial killers.
