DVD Review – My Father Die (2016)

3 April 2017 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

My Father Die, 2016.

Directed by Sean Brosnan.

Starring Joe Anderson, John Schneider, Kevin Gage, Sean Brosnan, Gary Stretch, Gabe White, Candace Smith, Chester Rushing, and William Mark McCullough.

Synopsis:

A deaf mute takes revenge on the man that killed his brother, only that man happens to be his father.

Revenge thrillers are two-a-penny, especially in the direct-to-dvd market, and with the plots of most of them being relatively similar – let’s face it, how many ways are there to show somebody wronged and then getting their own back? – it takes something special to elevate a film from the rest of the pack. Right from the off My Father Die sets itself apart from the rest by making a few interesting choices that set up a main plot rife with subtext and the ability to keep you glued to the screen right until the end.

Beginning with a poetic voiceover from »

Why Hiring Joss Whedon For Batgirl Could Help Save The DC Universe!

1 April 2017 5:31 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Life is tough right now for DC. The first three DC Extended Universe movies were critically panned, movies with characters like Batman can't crack $1 billion at the box office, and projects are falling apart left and right as directors and writers drop out, delaying them until who knows when.  The Flash has lost several directors, Aquaman was recently delayed, and films that should be priorities like The Batman and Man of Steel 2 don't even have release dates. Several of the Justice League solo-films on DC's slate may have release dates, but not directors or writers! 

And yet, DC keeps announcing new projects that seem like long-shots at this point, especially if they can't even get The Flash off the ground. We've heard about not only a Shazam movie, but also a spin-off for Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam. In addition to no brainers like Suicide Squad 2, DC has made »

CHiPS Review

24 March 2017 3:48 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Even some of the more engaging action comedy capers have to make a compromise, as the success rate in establishing a strong narrative while remaining consistently funny is a a hurdle many a filmmaker has stumbled on. Some thrive in their farcicality and the story becomes something of a side-note, while in others, it’s the comedy that takes precedence, with the narrative working as a mere vehicle for the humour. Dax Shepard’s CHiPS is a rare case, though – for it succeeds in neither.

Shepard plays Jon Baker, a newly enforced member of the Chp (California Highway Patrol) wanting to make his mark, and impress his wife (Kristen Bell) in a bid to save their dying marriage. Threatened with being fired if he doesn’t file within the top bracket of performers, he’s unenthused when meeting his partner, undercover FBI agent Frank Poncherello (Michael Pena »

Bright Images Tease A Fantastical New World As Will Smith Bigs Up Film’s Timely Social Commentary

6 March 2017 11:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

You’ve heard of it, haven’t you? The buddy-cop dynamic? Ever since Lethal Weapon popularized the genre – for western audiences, at least – in ’87, moviegoers have encountered nine kinds of films featuring mismatched duos in uniform. With Bright, writer-director David Ayer (Training Day, Suicide Squad) is extracting the core elements of the sub-genre to build a fantasy drama in which Will Smith and Joel Edgerton take point as the unlikely leading duo.

Setting up shop at Netflix, Bright is arguably one of the company’s biggest original properties to date, after the online streamer scooped up rights to Max Landis’ spec script in a deal worth upwards of $90 million. That’s a significant vote of confidence from Netflix, and after rolling out the suitably fantastical first teaser, Entertainment Weekly has now unearthed a trio of images featuring Smith, Edgerton and the rest of the gang in action. »

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.

Bright: First Look Images of Joel Edgerton and Will Smith

6 March 2017 9:57 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

As previously reported a world which consists of Orcs and humans working side by side together in the Lapd will finally become a reality come December 2017… All thanks to Suicide Squad’s David Ayer who takes the driving seat behind the Netflix original film, Bright. To take us deep into this dark alternate world three first look images have come to light.

Related: Bright Teaser Trailer

Our first image portrays a gun totting Will Smith as human Lapd Cop, Ward. Mean and moody and ready to take down some otherworldly criminal types.

The second image shows Joel Edgerton as you’ve never seen him before as Jakoby, the first ever Orc Cop to grace the American police force. With his large bulking frame, blue(ish) skin tone and bald head, a menacing demeanour engulfs his very being. We would hate to get on the wrong side of him. »

‘Nocturnal Animals’ Star Jake Gyllenhaal On Doing Very Bad Things in ‘Nightcrawler’: Awards Season Flashback

27 February 2017 2:57 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Spectrum. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today’s pick is “Nocturnal Animals.”]

Former teen heartthrob Jake Gyllenhaal has, as of late, been favoring violent character studies over broad studio fare like “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” and “Love & Other Drugs.” Following intense, acclaimed performances in “End of Watch,” “Enemy” and last year’s hit thriller “Prisoners,” Gyllenhaal turned in what is arguably his best and darkest performance in this year’s “Nightcrawler.”

His performance as Lou, a sociopath who spends his nights filming footage of heinous crime scenes to sell to the morning news, has earned the actor the best reviews of his career and multiple awards nominations (and hopefully wins), cementing the 34-year-old as one of the most exciting actors working in Hollywood today.

Bright Teaser: Fantasy Meets Reality In New Will Smith Film From Director David Ayer

27 February 2017 8:47 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

David Ayer has had quite the career thus far. He had his start writing such films as U-571, and the original Fast and the Furious film. From there, he hit his most high profile picture yet when he wrote Training Day, a film that would go on to be praised as one of Denzel Washington’s best performances yet.

In the mid-2000s, Ayer transition into directing, and over the next decade or so, he would establish himself as a helmer of violent dramas that include Street Kings, End of Watch, Sabotage, and Fury. Last year, his most high profile film yet, Suicide Squad hit theaters, and despite making all kinds of money at the box office, it was met with widespread ridicule from critics and fans. Regardless of what you thought of the film, however, there was little denying that he was a talented director. And like any good director, »

Will Smith Enters a Fantasy World in First Teaser for ‘Bright’

27 February 2017 5:39 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Netflix still hasn’t formally announced their reported acquisition of Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman — with a ballooned budget now at $125 million — but the company has a few more high-profile original films coming before then. This summer will see the release of Bong Joon-ho’s monster movie Okja, then later this year they’ll release the $90 million sci-fi action feature Bright.

Coming from David Ayer, who has a proclivity for both cop dramas and fantasy (as seen in his Oscar-winning tentpole Suicide Squad), the two worlds merge with his next film. Following Will Smith as a human detective who teams with an orc cop (Joel Edgerton) to regain control of a magic wand from evil forces, it sounds just peculiar enough to pique our curiosity. The first teaser has now arrived, which runs a brief 30 seconds as it introduces this strange world of creature-filled policing.
