Second Look: Smashed, Buffalo Soldiers, Killing Them Softly And More (Episode 3)

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With so many films releasing each year, it’s impossible to catch them all. No matter how many movies you see, there are always a handful that manage to get by. You pledge to catch them at a later date, or maybe when they hit Blu-Ray, but we all know how it goes. You never get around to watching them and as more and more time passes, they get completely forgotten. It’s a shame, too, because there really are so many great movies that get overlooked each and every year and unfortunately, don’t achieve the mainstream success that they deserve.

Here at We Got This Covered, we’re hoping to remedy this problem by starting a new web show titled Second Look, where each week we’ll suggest several great movies that you might not have seen yet. On the last episode, we presented you with Haywire, The Bling Ring, »

Review: Mike Cahill's 'I Origins' Starring Michael Pitt & Brit Marling

16 July 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

2011, the year of actress Brit Marling, also introduced the world of cinema to two promising filmmakers: “The Sound Of My Voice” director Zal Batmanglij and “Another Earth” filmmaker Mike Cahill. Marling starred and co-wrote both heady and high concept indie efforts and her rocket soon took off. Fox Searchlight picked up both films and Batmanglij was soon making his intriguing follow-up “The East.” Skeptics were a little less convinced about “Another Earth,” which featured an admittedly excellent concept but was sometimes limited by its budget and presentation in execution. However, those that sensed great promise should be thrilled to see it fulfilled in “I Origins,” Cahill’s powerful follow-up. As the proverb goes, “the eyes are the window to the soul,” and that phrase feels like the blowtorch that sets “I Origins” alight for Cahill to investigate notions of spirituality vs. science, coincidence, chance and the unexplained subconscious working behind the curtain of. »

The Essential Linda Ronstadt: Ranking Her Top 20 Songs

15 July 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Linda Ronstadt was the biggest selling female rock star of the 70′s, and has charted 38 Billboard Hot 100 singles, with 21 reaching the top 40, 10 in the top 10, three at #2, and one #1, and influenced generations of female musicians. So why did it take until this year, after the announcement that she has Parkinson’s disease, until she was finally nominated and inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame? That’s some shady shit, right there.

Maybe she was too outspoken over the years? Maybe she tried on too many musical hats? No one in pop music history has tried on so many musical styles and had so much success with them. From country, pop, rock, R&B, big band, opera, to children’s songs, to the all-time biggest selling non-English language album in the U.S (Canciones De Mi Padre), Linda has been fearless and exuberant in her diverse career choices.

Today is her 68th birthday, »

Mike Cahill on Crazy Sidetrack to Mind-Blowing 'I Origins,' Working with Michael Pitt, Opening Karlovy Vary

11 July 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

What struck me about Mike Cahill's "I Origins" when I saw it at Sundance was how clearly it was the work of the same director who made "Another Earth." One of the challenges for many rising filmmakers as they navigate from their first feature to their second is what compromises they are willing to make as they seek outside funding and bigger budgets. The story of how "I Origins" got made is instructive. "Another Earth" and a second film, "The Sound of My Voice," made by Cahill's Georgetown buddies Brit Marling (who produced, co-wrote and starred in "Another Earth") and director Zal Batmanglij, were both released by Fox Searchlight, who were investing in their next films as well. As Cahill struggled to find the right story, Marling and Batmanglij moved ahead with eco-terrorist story "The East," which turned into one of those 'tweeners, too glossy to be a gritty indie, »

The Signal

16 June 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Signal

Directed by: William Eubank

Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Beau Knapp, Olivia Cooke, Laurence Fishburne

Running Time: 1 hr 35 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: June 13, 2014 (Chicago)

Plot: Three young adults (Thwaites, Knapp, Cooke) are captured by a strange government agency when trying to locate a hacker who has been trolling them.

Who’S It For? Viewers who like watching conspiracy films with only the illusion of high intelligence.

Overall

As hungry indie filmmakers clash for a fleeting part in the multiplex they yearn to someday star in, some put a feature film’s worth of effort into what is unofficially titled the Calling Card Movie. A concept (not a categorization), the Ccm is not to be associated with every debut or bigger break for directors trying to create public careers from their craft. These are the independent projects that take creative freedoms hostage, at the sake of a distinct filmmaking attitude or style, »

The Definitive Religious Movies: 50-41

24 March 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we are full-on in the Lent season, our definitive list will focus on films about religion or some aspect of it. The #1 qualification to be on this list is to deliberately focus on religion, a religious figure, or have the presence of a religion/faith as an integral plot point. For example, most of Luis Bunuel’s films can be viewed as attacks on the church, but they aren’t literally about Christianity; therefore, they won’t be included. So, on this list, we’ll look at as many different faiths  as possible (though, there are obviously a lot more movies about Christianity than any other religion). We’ll even dabble into cults and sects that don’t really exist. Final rule: no documentaries. We’re keeping this fictional.

Review: Holy Ghost People

13 February 2014 10:16 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Faith can be viewed judgmentally from those not associated with religion, but for those practicing, it’s as normal as anything else they do throughout the day. Belief in a higher power, from whatever religious foundation one may claim, requires a large amount of blind faith. Though there are some religious groups that claim healing powers and the ability to perform miracles all meant to propose visual validation of faith.

Holy Ghost People, directed by one half of the Butcher Brothers, Mitchell Altieri, explores the more extreme approaches of faith with a film focused on a young girl looking for her sister she believes has been kidnapped by a snake handling religious group. Altieri, assisted by some convincing performances, crafts a thriller that is blemished by structural issues within the narrative though still surprisingly feels wholly authentic.

Sundance 2014: Awesome Original Sci-Fi Creation 'The Signal' Thrills

21 January 2014 5:29 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Throughout the many years of the Sundance Film Festival, a handful of outstanding, original, indie science fiction films have premiered here - Cube, Primer, Donnie Darko and Sound of My Voice to name a few. One of the next new awesome sci-fi creations to make its mark at Sundance is called The Signal, not related to the anthology horror film of the same name which also played at this festival a few years ago. Directed by up-and-comer William Eubank (follow him @superswift), The Signal is a thrilling, keep-you-guessing sci-fi action thriller that is more more gripping and entertaining that I could have ever imagined. It's very hard to talk about The Signal without giving away a few of its key plot twists, which are best kept a secret if you want the best experience with this film. In the opening scenes we're introduced to three friends, played by Brenton Thwaites, »

Outlander

A new photo is out of the characters of Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe) together in "Outlander," Starz’s adaptation of Diana Gabaldon's popular novel series about a WW2 nurse who falls back in time to war torn Scotland in the 1700s.

Showrunner Ronald D. Moore says that four episodes of the first season are now in the can. Sadly there's still no air date as yet beyond a general 2014 airing. [Source: Twitter]
