Wide World of Horror: ‘Hell’ – the sun brings death just as readily as it does life

27 August 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Screenplay by Tim Fehlbaum, Oliver Kahl, & Thomas Wöbke

Directed by Tim Fehlbaum

Germany/Switzerland, 2011

Dirty, grimy, and dusty, that’s how best to describe Hell. The heat can be felt, the dryness of the film comes off of the screen like a hot summer day in Chicago. Tim Fehlbaum takes a very tactile approach with his film, daring the audience to feel what his characters are feeling. The horror of Hell is that when the characters are hot the viewer feels hot. When the characters are struggling with thirst the audience feels like it needs a drink of water. Herr Fehlbaum asks a lot out of the characters he, and his screenplay compatriots, have created for Hell. He asks just as much, if not more, out of his films audience.

The first ten or so minutes of Hell are the most important minutes in the film. They establish this world, »

Hell Frozen Over: Joon-Ho’s Dystopic Thrill Ride an Arresting Examination of Cold Humanity

His first feature film since 2009’s Mother, as well as his English language debut, Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer, based on the French graphic novel series “Le Transperceneige,” has been hyped at fever pitch ever since storming the box office in his native South Korea last year. After a much publicized haggling between the director and the Weinstein’s’ wish to trim twenty minutes away for the American palette, it’s a glorious win for art over commerce with the release of the title as the director originally intended it. Not to mention it moves as slickly as the rattling train upon which its set, speeding through a running time that slightly curbs over two hours at a brilliant pace.

Simply, a post apocalyptic tale showcasing mankind’s innate need for degrading hierarchies even when facing extinction, »

Studio Blockbusters: Is It All about Cultural Momentum and Familiarity from Now Onc

13 June 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

While we were trying to figure out if it was the title that caused audiences to stay away from Edge of Tomorrow, a reader floated an idea that it wasn't the title at all, but instead cultural momentum. He writes, "If you don't have an already existing cultural space reserved that garners you momentum within the minds of audiences, that is to say pre-existing 'good-will' or interest, or are linked to it in some way (via a meta-brand like 'Marvel studios') you're basically close to screwed upfront." While there aren't any studies to back this up, I find this incredibly fascinating. Of course, there will always be outliers and it's no secret audience familiarity with a product will breed increased interest, which is, after all, the reason sequels exist in the first place. But has it reached a tipping point where it's not only a sound business decision »

Meme: Anna Wintour Boycotts Dorchester Hotels, Dr. Robi Ludwig Is So Misunderstood, David Schwimmer Provides Video For Male Prostitute Fight

27 May 2014 4:17 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Candy Spelling dumped a lover over a penile implant, Rep. Allen West says Glsen is indoctrinating children, can marriage equality in all 50 states arrive by next June?

On a typical Monday in New York, a 26-year-old man and the 21-year-old prostitute he’d called to his home got into a fight when he refused to pay the man. It got ugly, breaking a glass door in the lobby, and police were having trouble reconstructing the fight when David Schwimmer appeared and told them his security cameras next door had captured the whole fight, making him a hero. I hope the prostitute got paid in the end. So that’s what Ross has been up to these days.

So it seems that Pixar’s next film, Inside Out, is basically Herman’s Head for teenage girls.

Paul Smith, an attorney in the Windsor case, feels that marriage equality will come to »
