'Rough Night' Review: Female 'Hangover' Never Finds Its Comedic Mojo

15 June 2017 5:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Four women go wild at a Miami bachelorette party for their Bff Jess (Scarlett Johansson), an uptight candidate for state senator who has to work through some control issues. Good premise. It's club time for the ladies – Frankie (Ilana Glazer), a lesbian activist, and her former lover, real-estate diva Blair (Zoë Kravitz); Pippa (SNL Mvp Kate McKinnon), Jess's Aussie bud from her year abroad; and schoolteacher Alice (Jillian Bell), the college party animal who never reformed and still feels no shame over her rep as a "foot-job girl." Great cast. »

Bad girls go wild in the red band trailer for the Scarlett Johansson led Rough Night

8 May 2017 5:54 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Oh Ladies, oh no ladies… Something needs to be done about the forthcoming Scarlett Johansson film Rough Night, In the brand new red band trailer these a-holes are giving away all our girl’s only nights out secrets. Come on ladies, don’t deny it, we’ve all been there… well, apart from the dead stripper.

Related: Rough Night International Trailer

Vulgarity prevails in the red band trailer; not only do the ladies recreate a scene from the stomach turning The Human Centipede and rename it the Friendsipede (if you’re not familiar with the film, hope on over to Google and give it a search, Good Luck), but they also hope to be “swimming in dick”. Now as a woman writing this I can’t say this is at all realistic At All *cough*… From cocaine snorting to sexy dance routines while drunk up in da »

Movie Review – Raw (2016)

6 April 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Raw, 2016.

Written and Directed by Julia Ducournau.

Starring Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella, Laurent Lucas, Joana Preiss, Bouli Lanners, Marion Vernoux, and Jean-Louis Sbille.

Synopsis:

When a young vegetarian undergoes a carnivorous hazing ritual at vet school, an unbidden taste for meat begins to grow in her.

A coming-of-age cannibal movie could – as you’d expect – never be a sweet, gentle tale of teenage years. The synopsis alone is enough to draw away your regular cinema-going audience, but those who are smart and semi-curious should flock to see this film. It won’t take long for word-of-mouth to spread around about the film and hopefully draw in the crowds. For a feature directorial debut, Julia Ducournau has immediately cemented herself as one of the 21st century’s most promising talents. Her efforts and tact with the material warrants the aforementioned word-of-mouth and those who may flock.

Exclusive Interview: Special effects artist Dan Martin talks Free Fire

27 March 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With new Ben Wheatley movie Free Fire on release this week, Sean Wilson chats to one of the director’s closest collaborators Dan Martin about the art of great practical effects…

Blasting onto screens in a hail of gunfire, mismatched accents and some choice 1970s costumes, Free Fire is the riotously entertaining new black comedy from Ben Wheatley, director of Kill List, Sightseers and High-Rise. Ahead of the movie’s release we caught up with veteran effects designer Dan Martin, a regular partner of Wheatley’s who has also worked on the likes of The Human Centipede, to talk about the nature of their collaboration and the secrets to a great, gory, crowd-pleasing practical effect.

So Dan, make-up artists and special effects technicians are some of the most important, albeit unseen, magicians at work in our favourite movies. As one yourself, how do you help pull an audience even further »

Spawn: Todd McFarlane WantsTo Dial It 'Up To 11' With The R-Rating

6 March 2017 12:42 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

For years now, Spawn's creator Todd McFarlane has been trying to get another Spawn movie made, and every six months or so we get a story like this where he is "talking the big talk." Now it seems he may be ready to "walk the walk." After the success of Deadpool and Logan -- both R-rated superhero films -- he appears to be ready to create a raunchy version of Spawn that will have us all leaving the theaters feeling like we just watched The Human Centipede. While at Emerald City Comic Con, he got the crowd going nuts when he said this:

"Listen, I’m going to paint it for you. The movie is going to be a dark R. If here’s PG-13 and here’s Deadpool and here’s Logan, we’re going to be here. It’s going to be dark. It’s going to be nasty. »

John Oliver Delivers Epic Trump Takedown by Analyzing ‘Stupid Watergate’ Wiretap Claim — Watch

6 March 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

On Sunday night’s edition of “Last Week Tonight,” host John Oliver slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is accused of lying under oath about his meetings with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, while he was an advisor to Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Yes, Jeff Sessions, Trump’s attorney general, the unfortunate result of Dobby the House Elf’s one-night stand with a Confederate flag, got in trouble this week for undisclosed meetings with Russia’s ambassador,” Oliver jabbed.

Last week,  The Washington Post reported that during his confirmation hearings, Sessions failed to reveal that he met with Kislyak twice between July and September, while he was still a senator and an advisor to Trump’s campaign. When asked by Senator Al Franken what he would do as Ag if there was any evidence that anyone involved in the campaign had any type of communications with Russia during the campaign, »

Movie Review – The Night of the Virgin (2016)

22 February 2017 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Night of the Virgin, 2016.

Directed by Roberto San Sebastián.

Starring Javier Bódalo, Miriam Martin, and Victor Amilibia.

Synopsis:

Dorky young Nico follows an older woman home with the promise of finally losing his virginity once and for all. As grimy and oddly decorated as it is, the stage is set in the woman’s apartment for the boy to at long last become a man. There’s only one problem: she has something very different planned. Something ritualistic.

Horror nuts, gore fiends and seasoned devotees of extreme cinema, this is not a drill. Drop everything: we might just have found your new favourite movie.

Those with weak hearts or of a sensitive disposition, look away now. The Night of the Virgin, a comedically-tinged gross-out fright fest of the most epic proportions, is landing soon, and aside from being one of the most terrifically staged, tremendously tense and gloriously ballsy »

John Oliver Explains Trump-Russia Insanity with the Help of ‘La La Land’ and ‘The Human Centipede’ — Watch

20 February 2017 11:55 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In the latest “Last Week Tonight” segment, John Oliver goes long on the special relationship between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. One moment feels especially apt. While discussing the false equivalencies made between Russia and the United States — a favorite tactic of Putin, who’s known for deflecting criticisms of his government by pointing out that things aren’t perfect in America either — the host uses an unexpected analogy: “La La Land” and “The Human Centipede.”

“Not all problems are the same,” Oliver explains. “It’s like comparing ‘La La Land,’ an Academy Award–nominated movie with glaring flaws, to ‘The Human Centipede,’ a thing that barely counts as a film. Yes, one movie is people sewn mouth-to-anus, but, you know, Ryan Gosling looks at his feet when he dances, so it all evens out in the end. »

Sundance: Variety Critics Talk Mid-Fest Favorites

24 January 2017 8:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Owen Gleiberman: I’m tempted to say, Peter, that this has been a fairly quiet Sundance so far. It’s not like there hasn’t been some noise, especially given that one title, “The Big Sick,” inspired enough love to be bought for $12 million — more than any Sundance film in history (with the exception of last year’s “The Birth of a Nation”). But maybe I’m talking about the fact that when I watch these movies now, I have a more daunting sense than I used to of how tough it will be for any of them, when they finally get released, to find a place in the newly fragmented, 1,000-entertainment-choices-a-day marketplace. Some of them will, of course, but the climb is getting steeper.

Yet enough gloom and doom! Let’s talk about “The Big Sick,” a romantic comedy that winds up being a true journey. I saw »
