2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #52. Matt Aselton – Lying and Stealing

You’d been forgiven if you’ve forgotten the name of Matt Aselton who, a decade earlier, made his directorial debut with Gigantic – a film with Paul Dano, Zooey Deschanel, John Goodman inside a quirky mattress store and ideas of adoption that I caught at the 2008 Toronto Intl. Film Festival. Lying and Stealing is his sophomore feature, and while on paper this sounds like a longshot, perhaps there is a unique brand of weirdness carried over into a grifter tale that includes the likes of Theo James, Emily Ratajkowski, Fred Melamed, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Evan Handler and John Gatins.…

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Creators Reveal Their Original Season 3 Pitch and Their First Plans for the Show’s Ending

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Creators Reveal Their Original Season 3 Pitch and Their First Plans for the Show’s Ending
[Note: The following story contains spoilers for “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Season 3.]

So far, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” has played out relatively close to the way that Rachel Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna first pitched the show a half-decade ago. But as with all plans, there are some inevitable changes along the way.

At an event at the UTA Theater in Beverly Hills on Wednesday night, Bloom and Brosh McKenna spoke about the deeper sides of the show’s third season and how some of the deviations from the original plans happened right up top.

“The question was, ‘Right after the wedding, what is she doing?’ Originally, she goes to this diner with her friends. She thinks and says, ‘Will you excuse me for one second?’ Then she knocks on Nathaniel’s door,” Bloom said. “Literally the first second of the season, and then that’s part of the reason he’s then on the hook.”

“The writers really hated that

Chicago Fire Sneak Peek: Dawson and Casey Butt Heads With the New Chief

Chicago Fire Sneak Peek: Dawson and Casey Butt Heads With the New Chief
The couple that challenges the temporary chief together… stays together?

In TVLine’s exclusive video from Thursday’s Chicago Fire (NBC, 10/9c), Dawson and Casey come up against the antagonistic Chief Mullins (guest star John Gatins), who’s filling in for Boden. The new boss quickly makes his authority known, informing Dawson and Brett that they’ve been reported for taking two patients — a young victim and the man who struck her with his car — in the same ambulance. Although the paramedics were just trying to save lives, they went against protocol and created a potential lawsuit in the process,

Power Rangers Scribe Originally Had A Different Idea In Mind For Post-Credits Scene

Proving that post-credits scenes needn’t be exclusive to Hollywood’s thriving superhero genre, Lionsgate and director Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers snuck in an end-credits teaser during the final moments of their radical reboot.

Those of you who hung around after the credits rolled back in March will know that that sequence in question largely centered on the sixth member of the Powers Rangers, fuelling speculation that Tommy Oliver (Aka the Green Ranger) would be introduced in a possible sequel – Rangers may not have lit up the box office in the way Lionsgate and Saban would’ve hoped, but strong Blu-ray sales have meant that a second movie isn’t necessarily off the table.

Heck, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer once claimed that Israelite’s big-screen revival could launch a franchise spanning seven movies in total, so even if there are still many questions yet to be answered when it

Kong: Skull Island 3-D

Kong is back, transformed into a ‘MonsteVerse’ colossus suitable for combat with Kaiju-sized foes. The key inspiration is video games but the day is saved by capable performers in mostly amusing roles. Even though the show treats its fantasy halfway seriously, it’s still an infantile guns ‘n’ monsters romp, embellished with impressive visual effects.

Review: Power Rangers 4K Ultra, Blu-ray and Digital HD DVD Releases

Photo Courtesy of Lionsgate.

For any of us who grew up with the Power Rangers (which is likely a majority seeing the number of years they have spanned) have either already seen the movie, or are looking to check it out upon its release on DVD. Below I will give an overview of the movie itself followed by a review of the special features included on the different DVD releases:

The Movie:

The film opens with a large exposition introducing the audience to the teenagers with attitude. Each individual fits some type of the cliche high school student, and while some have been put off by this, it actually is a strong reflection of the 1990's Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which gave a nostalgic feel to a modern take. I did feel that there was a bit too much focus on the "attitude" of each individual. Yes, the original series

Second Opinion – Power Rangers (2017)

Power Rangers, 2017.

Directed by Dean Israelite

Starring Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, Rj Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G, Matt Shively, John Stewart, Cody Kearsley, David Denman, Robert Moloney, Anjali Jay, Sarah Grey, Morgan Taylor Campbell, Wesley MacInnes, Elizabeth Banks, Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston, Amy Jo Johnson, and Jason David Frank.

Synopsis:

A group of high-school kids, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world.

At a time where Hollywood is attempting to cynically re-package innumerable dormant franchises while exploiting the current high demand for nostalgia, it’d be easy for Power Rangers to be merely another soullessly vapid addition to the pile. However, this wholly imperfect romp proves unexpectedly entertaining thanks to a surprising devotion to character development and, yes, a colourful explosion of Transformers-esque, city-leveling mayhem.

65 million years ago, the Power Rangers were double-crossed by one of their own, Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks

Film Review: ‘Power Rangers’ Reboot is a Stunning Bore

Chicago – The big budget “Power Rangers” reboot tests the limits of just how pedestrian a supposed $100 million dollar blockbuster can be. Part of that is due to the fact that superhero movies are a dime a dozen these days, and a movie has to have something more than just silver screen quality special effects to set it apart.

But looking at the finished project – with its flat performances, sluggish pace, and ho-hum-yet-costly effects, it’s hard to see who was exactly asking for this anyway?

Rating: 1.5/5.0

The Power Rangers are so anonymous they make the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles look richly textured and fleshed out by comparison. And this cast seems to have been assembled in a focus group, with no considerations for chemistry whatsoever. It opens with a tired prank where star high school quarterback Jason (Dacre Montgomery) sticks a cow in the locker room, and then gets put

Power Rangers Review

These aren’t your after school, eating-Ellio’s-pizza-in-front-of-the-tv childhood heroes. Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers won’t show any piggy gladiators guzzling trash (Pudgy Pig, respect). Children were crying in my screening. Scout’s honor. One single scene brought numerous kids to tears, in a way that Saban’s televised tomfoolery never could. This is the dark, gritty Power Rangers 2017 demanded, because why create an original superhero movie? Just recycle an existing property by stripping most familiarities, then take cues from an Actual original superhero concept that had the balls to defy mainstream appeal (Chronicle!). Weave some Transformers magic (nice shout out to Bumblebee), drizzle dump some teen angst into a melodramatic script and cover the original theme for a hot second. That’s how you do a reboot these days, kids! Now fork over your dough and feed the machine.

It all starts with a high schooler jerking off
