Transcendence review: AI yai yai

18 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The neo-luddite attitude is bad enough, but the movie commits a far worse sin: it’s dull. If only it worked as a schlocky pile of pulp nonsense, that’d be something… I’m “biast” (pro): the cast is appealing

I’m “biast” (con): really? evil computer? *sigh*

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

Human beings, at least in some places on planet Earth, are afforded the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. But somehow, pop culture has unilaterally decided that AI — artificial intelligence — is to be condemned before it even exists. And so we have Transcendence, which feels no need to mess about with any metaphoric applications of Evil Computers– like, say, how The Matrix used AI with a grudge against humanity to craft a seductive metaphor about conformity — but goes straight for the cautionary horror tale: Do not create AI, humanity. It’s »

Movie Review – Magic Magic (2013)

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Magic Magic, 2013.

Directed by Sebastián Silva.

Starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple, Emily Browning, Catalina Sandino Moreno and Agustin Silva.

Synopsis:

A delicate and fragile young woman takes a Chilean roadtrip with some of her cousins’ friends, with unsettling and unexpected results.

Juno Temple could never be accused of choosing easy roles. The St Trinian from somewhat humble, inauspicious beginnings has developed as an actor by diversifying wildly by genre and tone. From a creative family (mother producer, father director) it comes as no great surprise that she has ended up pulling faces for money as a chosen profession.

Even at the tender age of twenty-five, she already has an enviable CV of roles, such as the aformentioned St Trinians, The Dark Knight Rises, Greenberg, Killer Joe, Lovelace and this project to name but half a dozen in a career littered with influences from a host of directors that have given her a solid grounding. »

Transcendence

20 hours ago | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Transcendence

Directed by: Wally Pfister

Cast: Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy

Running Time: 1 hr 58 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: April 18, 2014

Plot: A scientist (Depp) has his brain downloaded into a computer to save it. When anti-tech terrorists try to destroy him, his wife (Hall) uploads him to the internet.

Who’S It For? Those who can watch a science-fiction movie without demanding concrete logic. At the very least, don’t expect this movie, executive produced by Christopher Nolan, to be like his own films.

Overall

The Internet is for real in Transcendence, a B-movie with grade-a production quality, loaded with terabyte-size open-ended questions, so long as one can accept it lastly with a scientific mindset. It is a film that perceives technology to be more expansive than a box of wires and computer chips, and actualizes the expanse of the internet as limitless to the realm of spiritual. »

Locke review: riding in a car with a boy

17 April 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

We say things like, “Oh, I’d watch that guy read the phone book,” and this is almost that. Except it really is absolutely riveting, and that’s no joke. I’m “biast” (pro): love Tom Hardy

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

This is the movie that is just Tom Hardy driving in his car for 90 minutes, talking on his mobile. We say things like, “Oh, I’d watch that guy read the phone book,” and this is almost that. Except it really is absolutely riveting, and that’s no joke.

Still, I’m seeing Locke getting called a “thriller” around the Net, which is a little bit of a stretch. What Hardy’s (The Dark Knight Rises, Lawless) Ivan Locke is driving toward and what’s he’s talking to various people about on the phone are matters of some suspense, »

First featurette for Disney’s Maleficent

17 April 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a little over six weeks to go until its release, Walt Disney Pictures has debuted the first featurette for Maleficent, Oscar-winning production designer Robert Stromberg’s (Alice in Wonderland) live-action reimagining of the animated classic Sleeping Beauty starring Angelina Jolie (The Tourist) as the Mistress of All Evil and Elle Fanning (Super 8) as Princess Aurora. Check it out below… From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land.

Review: Transcendence

17 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Wally Pfister has spent almost fifteen years as Christopher Nolan's go-to cinematographer. From Memento to The Dark Knight Rises, he's been behind the camera capturing incredible action-packed movies. For his directorial debut he chose a cyberthriller and packed it with terrific actors, even getting Nolan to serve as an executive producer. This is all quite an impressive pedigree for a first-time director, but it's also why the finished project, the movie Transcendence, feels so disappointing. 

The story begins in the not-too-distant future with Max Waters (Paul Bettany) wandering around the chaotic streets of Berkeley, California. We learn there is no power and the phones are down thanks to an "unavoidable collision" of mankind and technology. After spending just a few moments in this dystopia, we flash back five years to try and understand why. Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall play Will and Evelyn Caster, a research team and loving »

"Amazing Spider-Man 2" Aims For A Billion

17 April 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's a lot of pressure on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" to perform well. Just how well though? You may be surprised.

Variety reports that Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal has set a goal of a $1 billion worldwide box-office for the sequel.

The figure isn't as outlandish as you might expect. 2012's first film raked in $752 million, while the three previous Sam Raimi films clocked in between $783 million to $890 million.

Even so, only four comic book movies have grossed over $1 billion worldwide - "The Avengers," "Iron Man 3," "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises".

Sony has reportedly bet big on the film with more than $400 million in production and worldwide marketing costs riding on the movie. It is paying off though with tracking figures suggesting the film is headed for a $100 million opening weekend in the United States - a big jump up on the $62 million opening weekend of the first film. »

The HeyUGuys Summer Preview – Interstellar

17 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

Director Christopher Nolan is known for the secrecy that surrounds the production of his films. Think locked rooms, surreptitiously delivered scripts, each page watermarked with the name of the actor, and endings that are verbally delivered. In fact, during the filming of the final scene from The Dark Knight Rises (Spoiler), Christian Bale was on set in order to prevent leaks about the ending. Although, considering the recent escapade surrounding the Quentin Tarantino Hateful Eight leak, one can never be too careful. Nolan has been as evasive as ever about Interstellar, which will be his first film since the end of The Dark Knight Trilogy in 2012. But, since the release of the teaser trailer in December, hints about the up coming science fiction picture are slowly beginning to emerge.

“We have always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible.” So begins the teaser to Interstellar. What follows is »

Forecast: 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' Gets Early Start Overseas... >

16 April 2014 5:09 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Two weeks ahead of its U.S. debut, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 begins its international roll-out this weekend. It opens in 15 markets, including major territories like Australia, Germany, Mexico, Spain and the U.K.The sequel arrives less than two years after The Amazing Spider-Man, a franchise reboot that earned over $750 million worldwide. While that's an impressive tally, it marked a new low for the Spider-Man character. That drop can be attributed in large part to declining interest in the U.S., where each movie has earned less than its predecessor (this one was down 22 percent). With franchise fatigue in full effect, it would be surprising if The Amazing Spider-Man 2 bucked this trend.As is commonplace nowadays, it's up to international markets to pick up the slack. All four previous Spider-Man movies have earned over $400 million outside of the U.S., and the last one ranks second with $490 million. »

The Mutants Will Show Up In The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Post-Credit Scene

16 April 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite the fact that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is being distributed by Sony and X-Men: Days of Future Past belongs to 20th Century Fox, the two studios will be working together for some cross-promotion. According the audiences across the pond, where Spidey’s second outing is opening today, there will be a post-credit scene in the film that involves some of the characters from Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men sequel.

Now, before you get all excited, this does not mean that Spider-Man is teaming up with the X-Men. Not at all. The scene in question will be completely unrelated and will not tie-in with the Spidey universe in any way. Empire has described the footage as follows:

The scene featured sees Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, Lucas Till’s Havok and Evan Jonigkeit’s Toad taking on William Stryker (Josh Helman) and his military men. Without wishing to spoil anything, let »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' trailer: A deep dive into the final 'X' preview

16 April 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Even though it can sometimes feel like all of human existence is just an extended teaser-trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, the latest trailer for the super-sequel actually contains a few new pieces of information, mostly focused on previously-unfinished special effects and the always-controversial Quicksilver factor. Check out the trailer here, and now let’s dive deep into the last tantalizing piece of promotion until the movie finally arrives and human existence becomes an extended teaser-trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse.

First of all, we need to talk about Young Professor X. In First Class, James McAvoy played the ’60s-era Charles Xavier as a dashing academic. »

Tom Hardy goes shirtless for Esquire: 'I don't feel very manly'

16 April 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy has revealed that he doesn't "feel very manly" despite his reputation as a 'tough guy'.

The actor posed shirtless for the latest issue of Esquire, and described himself as just a "petit little bourgeois boy from London".

Speaking about his macho image, he told the magazine: "I don't feel very manly. I don't feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how I imagine a man ought to be.

"So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them.

"I'm not a fighter. I'm a petit little bourgeois boy from London. I don't fight, I mimic," he added.

The Dark Knight Rises actor went to rehab in 2003 to tackle his addiction to drink and drugs, and has remained clean ever since.

He said: "I was a shameful suburban statistic. »

Boy King Mocked: The Web’s Best Joffrey Memes

15 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This post discusses events from this week's episode of Game of Thrones.Our latest Game of Thrones departure, offed at his own nuptials, is the reviled King Joffrey Baratheon. R.I.P., you obnoxious teen! You had a face (and a 'tude) only a mother could love. The rest of the internet hated you, and it was pretty obvious from all those memes. Let's remember the good times we had ruthlessly teasing King Joffrey. Here are some of the best: Still completely relevant, single-serving Tumblr Joffrey Bieber mixed the Boy King with music's most reviled pop star: Justin Bieber. Am I allowed to count my own meme? Because I'm pretty proud of it. Never forget: Just Joffrey Things. How about a Game of Thrones theme song completely made up of Joffrey getting slapped? Or the time someone realized that a tiny Joffrey appeared in The Dark Knight Rises and "put the pieces together. »

Hans Zimmer has revealed that Zack Snyder has asked him to score the upcoming Batman vs Superman movie.

The 12 Years a Slave composer worked on the musical themes for Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and also scored last summer's Henry Cavill-led Superman reboot.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Zimmer confirmed that he's been asked to return for the Man of Steel follow-up and will begin working on it once he completes the score for Nolan's secretive sci-fi film Interstellar.

"We've already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas," Zimmer said.

The Oscar-winning musician added that he hopes to come up with a new theme for Ben Affleck's Batman, one different »
