Perspectives: Simon Barry and Rachel Nichols talk about Continuum

Trevor Hogg chats with showrunner Simon Barry and his leading lady Rachel Nichols about doing some time travelling in the streets of present day Vancouver and the future of television…

Simon Barry

“TV is more of a master to serve because you have this incredible schedule of production and post-production,” observes Simon Barry who wrote the feature screenplay for The Art of War (2000) starring Wesley Snipes (Blade), and is the creator and showrunner for Continuum [Showcase, 2012 to present]. “It’s close to the bone in regards to the time you have to make, get the show out and give it to the network. TV has a higher pace but film can be just as gruelling in terms of the demands of filming and the problems that have to be solved.” There is no two year wait to have an episode appear on the small screen. “It is a quick turnaround which in some

The Great Train Robbery: A Robber's Tale review

Review Louisa Mellor 18 Dec 2013 - 21:30

The first of two BBC films on the Great Train Robbery is slick stuff, but does it provide enough light and shade?

This review contains spoilers.

1.1 A Robber’s Tale

The Great Train Robbery. With a name like that, it’s no wonder we enjoy retelling this story. Had the 1963 Cheddington Mail Van Raid not been rechristened with such a swashbuckling title, you can bet we wouldn’t be here now, watching the credits roll on another dramatized version of events.

Or more properly, half a dramatized version. The second film in this diptych, A Copper’s Tale, airs tomorrow night and tells the same story from the other side of the thin blue line. Writer Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch, Torchwood) has cleaved the narrative into two neat halves: cops and robbers. In many ways, it’s a swell trick, the novelty of which tilts

Charlie's Farm Looks to Dethrone Horror Heavyweights

Few horror movie killers can rank among the top tier slaughter stars we've all come to love, but damn it, they try. Well, guess what, kids? Another is on his way, and one thing is certain: He has the girth to muscle in!

From the Charlie's Farm Facebook page:

Since the 1970's the world has been seen the rise of some of the most iconic killers, Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger and Thomas Hewitt (Leatherface). Australia has had its fair share of Amazing horror films from Patrick, Lake Mungo, Snow Town, Razorback, The Loved Ones, and of course the legend himself "Greg McLean" with Wolf Creek and now Wolf Creek 2 to name only a few.

The problem is Australia has never had a killer with the status of the American killers; Voorhees has had over 160 kills in his career and is hands down one of the most feared killers on the planet.

The Golden Globe Comedy and Musical nominees: Where laughter goes to die

The Golden Globe Comedy and Musical nominees: Where laughter goes to die
Want to hear something funny? These are this year’s Golden Globe nominees for Best Comedy or Musical: American Hustle, Her, Inside Llewyn Davis, Nebraska, and The Wolf of Wall Street.

Some of these you probably haven’t seen yet, but you’d be right to suspect that they aren’t exactly knee-slappers. (Your nostrils will be safe from soda when you eventually watch them.) In fact, they’re dramas and romances, albeit ones that might be slightly more offbeat or idiosyncratic than their Best Drama brethren. “Here’s the good news,” says Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay, “they’re fantastic movies on the list.

'Bound 2' deep dive: Kanye and Kim at the End of the World

'Bound 2' deep dive: Kanye and Kim at the End of the World
So yes, Kanye West has made a music video with a topless Kim Kardashian, fiancée and mother-of-his-child and free-floating symbol for the dystopia our lives have become. And yes, the music video — set to “Bound 2,” the extremely heartfelt and totally weird love song that ends Yeezus — is about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian riding a motorcycle in front of green-screen images of Monument Valley and space, which makes it look a little bit like a ’70s biker-gang Roger Corman movie shot inside of an iMac screensaver. And yes, you could argue that this music video is basically a softcore porno

Captain to Give Hanks One of His Biggest Domestic Box Office Openings in a Decade

Tom Hanks’ ‘Captain Phillips’ weekend box office: One of Hanks’ biggest domestic openings in the past decade Starring two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks in the title role — though you wouldn’t know it by looking at the film’s poster — Paul Greengrass’ inspired-by-real-life-events Captain Phillips grossed an estimated $8.5 million from 3,020 venues on Friday, October 11, 2013, including $600,000 from Thursday night showings, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo. Captain Phillips chronicles the adventures of the titular captain of an American cargo ship hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. (Photo: Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips.) Budgeted at $55 million — not including marketing and distribution expenses — Captain Phillips should collect anywhere between $23-25 million by Sunday evening. A major Saturday surge and a strong Sunday hold could lead to even higher results, but for now that’s mere speculation. Either way, Captain Phillips has absolutely no chance of topping this weekend’s domestic box office chart,

Critical Mass: Tom Hanks back in command in 'Captain Phillips'

Critical Mass: Tom Hanks back in command in 'Captain Phillips'
Tom Hanks has been a beloved Hollywood star for so long that it sounds like a fact-checking error when you read that he hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar in 12 years. During an historic stretch that spanned from A League of Their Own to Cast Away, Hanks could do no wrong, winning two Academy Awards and starring in 10 movies that topped $100 million. But his last decade’s highlights have been animated films, a Dan Brown franchise, and the HBO historical epics that he’s produced; his last few starring vehicles underachieved.

Notable recent movies: Box-office gross, (Metacritic/Rotten Tomatoes)
