Chappie movie review: robot icks

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

A morally muddled mess that is convoluted in plot and appallingly simplistic in its themes. I am a sad geek today. I’m “biast” (pro): I’ve been a fan of Neill Blomkamp’s films

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

If a mashup of 80s robot flicks Short Circuit and RoboCop sounds like a bad joke, well: almost. Chappie is often risible, but it’s more sad than anything else. Not the good kind of sad: this is not a poignant or touching film, though it clearly hopes to be. No, Chappie makes me sad because the promise that South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp displayed with his brilliant District 9 and which hung over his flawed but still daring followup Elysium is nowhere to be found here. Chappie is a morally muddled mess that is convoluted in plot and appallingly simplistic in its themes. »

The Walking Dead, Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut & Hannibal Nominated in 41st Annual Saturn Awards

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ and ‘Interstellar’ Lead Saturn Awards Noms

3 March 2015 5:51 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anthony and Joe Russo’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” lead this year’s 41st Annual Saturn Awards nominations with 11 and 10, respectively, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films announced on Tuesday.

Marvel’s summer box office smash “Guardians of the Galaxy” followed close behind with nine nominations. “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” followed with eight, and “Edge of Tomorrow” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” grabbed seven apiece.

Two of last year’s big television winners, “The Walking Dead” and “Hannibal,” lead the 2015 smallscreen noms with seven and six, respectively. “Continuum,” which airs on the Syfy channel and averages less than 1 million viewers, is the next most nominated show with four.

5 Movies You Need to See: March 2015

2 March 2015 6:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

They say that the month of March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Traditionally, March was an unconventional month to release huge tentpole movies, but that all changed a few years ago when The Hunger Games took in $152.5 million in its opening weekend, proving that this month could be used to launch huge blockbuster franchises. To get you prepared for the month ahead, we're breaking down the five movies we're most looking forward to this March, along with an indie honorable mention. Here are the best movies awaiting you in the weeks ahead!

1Chappie - March 6

South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp returns with his third feature film Chappie, following Best Picture nominee District 9 and the sci-fi tentpole Elysium. The filmmaker goes back to his South African roots with Chappie, which centers on the title robot (voiced by Sharlto Copley), who is the first android »

Once Upon A Time season 4 episode 13 review: Darkness On The Edge Of Town

2 March 2015 12:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once Upon A Time returns to ABC with three queens of Disney darkness: Maleficent, Cruella De Vil and Ursula...

This review contains spoilers.

4.13 Darkness On The Edge Of Town

Once Upon A Time is gearing up for another half-season arc and a whole new slew of problems for the beleaguered citizens of Storybrooke. So far the formula doesn’t look like it’s changed much. Expect more good-vs-evil struggles, family drama, and identity crises mixed in with fairytale snippets and way too many magical rules to keep track of. It’s not an especially elegant formula, but it’s kept fans coming back and if you are one of those fans, you likely won’t be disappointed.

As seen in the midseason finale, this half-season brings three villains into the spotlight: Ursula, Cruella De Vil, and Maleficent. It’s the first time these three have received any real attention, and »

5 must-watch March cinema releases: Chappie, Insurgent, Cinderella

1 March 2015 2:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We're only three months into 2015 but already it feels like blockbuster season is here. This month sees the next instalment in The Divergent Series, a new offering from Neill Blomkamp and Disney reinventing an old classic in live-action. Add these to an Oscar winning acting showcase and the latest from Studio Ghibli and March is looking golden.

Release diary: What movies are coming out in 2015?

Digital Spy rounds up the five films you have to see this March...

1. Chappie

Release date: March 6

Why you should see it: All the talk surrounding Neill Blomkamp at the moment is surrounding his proposed Alien sequel, perhaps overshadowing the fact he actually has a new film coming out. Following on from District 9 and Elysium, the filmmaker's third feature Chappie centres on a police robot who's rebooted and develops a consciousness. Look out for a mulleted Hugh Jackman, Die Antwoord playing themselves and startlingly »

'The Huntsman' Adds Jessica Chastain

25 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Oscar nom Jessica Chastain is the latest high-profile star to join "The Huntsman," Universal's spin-off of the 2012 blockbuster "Snow White and the Huntsman." It's taken a while for this big budget fantasy flick to get off the ground, but with the recent hire of Emily Blunt and now Chastain, it seems this team is just about ready to go back into the woods.

Chris Hemsworth is returning as the eponymous huntsman, alongside Charlize Theron as Ravenna, the best and meanest screen queen. The project was originally intended as a sequel, but after considerable behind-the-scenes drama, Kristen Stewart's Snow White and director Rupert Sanders were banished from the land. Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, who was the second unit director on "Snow White and the Huntsman" and "Maleficent," will be making his feature-length directorial debut, with a script most recently polished by Frank Darabont. Darabont was also attached to direct but left due to "creative differences. »

Tech Support: 'Grand Budapest' and 'Whiplash' lead Oscar's craft categories

23 February 2015 1:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Well, we're done. Another Oscar ceremony ends, and with it, another awards season and another year of Tech Support here at In Contention. On the whole, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" came out the big winner, taking four of the 10 crafts categories. "Whiplash" came up with two more while "Birdman," "Interstellar," "Selma" and "American Sniper" got in on the love-sharing with one apiece. Crafts category shut-outs for "Mr. Turner," "Unbroken" and "The Imitation Game," despite their impressive nomination counts, were unsurprising. It was also a year of repeat victors. Winners in Best Cinematography, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound Editing and Visual Effects had all won previously. There was one big first-timer, though, in Alexandre Desplat – more on him in a moment. Others are still waiting for their first wins, alas. Cinematographer Roger Deakins, songwriter Diane Warren and sound mixer Frank Montaño immediately jump to mind. Emmanuel Lubezki's triumph in »

Birdman wins best film, director

22 February 2015 10:25 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A memorable 87th annual Academy Awards for Fox Searchlight saw Birdman claim best film, director and two other statuettes to tie with The Grand Budapest Hotel’s four-strong haul.

Boyhood, which entered the evening on six nominations and had been expected to push Birdman in several of the senior categories on Sunday night, won a sole best supporting actress for Patricia Arquette.

The film’s time in the Oscar ceremony spotlight will not be forgotten, however, as Arquette paid tribute to her “Boyhood family” and made an impassioned plea for wage equality that spread like wildfire across social media.

Eddie Redmayne from The Theory Of Everything prevailed in a tight best actor contest to deny Michael Keaton another success for Birdman. The popular victory had the British actor jumping with excitement on stage at the Dolby Theatre.

Julianne Moore finally converted her fifth Academy Award nomination into a win for her performance in Still Alice in what »

2015 Oscar Award Winners: 'Birdman' Takes Best Picture

22 February 2015 8:30 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Oscars are in the books and it was Birdman taking home four awards including the coveted Best Picture along with a Best Director win for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu as well as an Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki) win. But Birdman wasn't the only film to take home four Oscars as The Grand Budapest Hotel had a small bit of domination in the below-the-line categories winning for Production Design, Costumes, Makeup & Hairstyling and Original Score (Alexandre Desplat). The only other multiple award winner was Whiplash, which took home Best Supporting Actor (J.K. Simmons), Best Film Editing and Sound Mixing. Otherwise, it was singles across the board and while there were a few interesting wins below the line, the top awards went pretty much by the books. Patricia Arquette took home Boyhood's only Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) won Best Actor over »

All the winners from Sunday’s 87th Academy Awards.

Show host Harris signs off with a chirpy, “Buenos noches!”

Sean Penn walks on. It’s time for the big one. Best film. Will it be Birdman or Boyhood? It’s Birdman! The movie ends the night tied with The Grand Budapest Hotel on four Oscars. Inarritu, referring to his pal Alfonso Cuaron who enjoyed success with Gravity at last year’s show, says, “Two Mexicans in a row. That’s suspicious, I guess.” Slightly more seriously, Agi also calls on his fellow Mexicans to help build a strong future for his beloved country. Wow, a good night for Birdman and a surprisingly barren one for Boyhood. Pirates indeed, Ethan Hawke, but glorious pirates.

And now Matthew McConaughey saunters on stage to announce best actress. Julianne Moore, five times a nominee at the Oscars is the favourite. Will she get it this time for Still Alice? Yes she’s got »
