There is a weight and heaviness to being Jason Bourne, nee David Webb, given that your life is constantly being manipulated and/or endangered. Trust doesn’t come easily and those around him tend to get hurt. Through three films, we’ve thrilled to Matt Damon’s interpretation of Robert Ludlum’s espionage hero in part thanks to the excellent filmmaking from directors Paul Greengrass and Doug Liman.
After skipping an installment that shifted the focus to a new agent played by Jeremy Renner, Greengrass and Damon returned this summer with Jason Bourne. Things have changed since 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum as skullduggery has increasingly gone digital so the lengths required to keep secrets buried have to go further. The film, out now from Universal Home Entertainment, explores what all that means.

Chicago – Local filmmaking has always gotten a boost through director Jack C. Newell. His 2015 film “Open Tables,” shot in Chicago and Paris, will get it’s digital release on Tuesday, December 6th, 2016, on iTunes and Video-On-Demand. This coincides with his art project “The Wabash Lights,” and his continued production work.
“Open Tables” features couples and groups meeting in restaurants, talking about their lives and relationships. Although the centerpiece is food, the meal is the conversation, including a story about a sojourn into Paris – shot in black and white. Newell directed the film in the improvisation style rooted in the Chicago comedy scene, much like his first narrative film, “Close Quarters,” which featured many local improvisation artists. He also takes on the lead role as Ryan, who defines himself through the adventure in Paris. The film explores and provides perspective on the elusiveness of relationships.

Despite the fact that it has been over 30 years since it was first released, Tron still feels somewhat ahead of its time. The plot may be forgettable nonsense, but the visual flourishes of the film still remain fresh. And despite how ripe the style is for the world of gaming, few games have managed to replicate the look. That’s not to say that Stormcloud Games’ Brut@l is trying to directly copy the 1982 film, but its spirit is certainly being invoked.
If my intro didn’t clue you in, Brut@l is best known for the unique style it possesses. While it may not share the same name, the title is a reimagining of sorts of the classic adventure game, Rogue. In that game, which released in 1980, the action on-screen was represented by Ascii characters, rather than sprites. In turn, Stormcloud Games has taken those symbols and recreated them in 3D. »
