Arrow Video Frightfest 2019 Review – Stairs

Stairs, 2019.

Directed by Tom Paton

Starring Samantha Schnitzler, Bentley Kalu, Shayne Ward, Simon Meacock, Toby Osmond, Phoebe Robinson-Galvin, Alana Wallace, Spencer Collings and Julia Szamalek

Synopsis:

When a group of Special Ops soldiers nicknamed “The Hell Bastards” are compromised during an infiltration mission on the battlefield, they seek solace within the confines of a building that houses a never-ending stairwell that forces them to climb or die.

There are plenty of genre films with a doozy of a concept, that subsequently can’t quite build on it to form a rounded, interesting feature length movie.

That’s the dilemma facing Tom Paton’s Twilight Zone invoking science-fiction horror. A kind of Groundhog Day, meets M.Night Shyamalan produced elevator thriller The Devil, by way of Dog Soldiers. A slice of action hokum which thrives on some nifty-yet-familiar narrative devices, but occasionally stumbles down the odd flight of stairs along the way.

‘Come to Daddy’ Review: Dir. Ant Timpson [Frightfest 2019]

Come to Daddy review: Elijah Wood and Ant Timpson open this year’s Arrow Video Frightfest with a bang with this eccentric and violent father and son story.

Signature Entertainment

Elijah Wood has been acting since he about eight years old. His first film credit was as ‘video game boy‘ in Robert ZemeckisBack to the Future Part II. He then went on to star in a plethora of family favourites such as Flipper, before moving into the teen arena with The Faculty. After that, he starred as Frodo Baggins in that small film series The Lord of the Rings. All of these roles conspired to give Wood this almost squeaky clean persona. This made his turn as silent cannibal serial killer Kevin in 2005’s Sin City all the more chilling. He followed this up playing a deranged man with a loose grasp on reality in Maniac, planting himself firmly

Fun Video Points Out Everything You Didn't Know About Honey, I Shrunk The Kids

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Disney’s classic 1989 film Honey, I Shrunk The Kids. I loved that movie when I was a kid and Disney is currently developing a remake of it for Disney+. The new film will be set in the same universe as the original films and Josh Gad will take on the role of Adam Szalinski, the son of Rick Moranis’ character Wayne Szalinski in the original films.

While we wait to see how that turns out, SyFy Wire has released a fun video that points out several aspects of the original film that you may not have known before. One of the first things it mentions is how the film was made on a budget of $18 million and ended up grossing $130 million. It made more money than The Little Mermaid, Back to the Future Part II, and Ghostbusters II that year!

Krypton Season 2 Episode 6 Review: In Zod We Trust

Everyone tries to process their grief on an emotional Krypton.

This Krypton review contains spoilers.

Krypton Season 2 Episode 6

This was an emotional one, wasn’t it? Following the murder of Nyssa at the hands of Jax, everyone has to work through their emotions, and interestingly, Krypton shows the five stages of grief via different characters.

First up, Seg’s emotional journey in “In Zod We Trust” packs a wallop. He begins the episode in shock, and breaking down after watching his beloved die on the comms channel (which is replaying the murder on a loop). Cameron Cuffe sells this anguish, and I couldn’t help but be reminded of Christopher Reeve’s Superman grieving over Lois in Donner’s Superman. As much as I love the wisecracking Seg, this is necessary for our character. He lost his parents at the beginning of his hero’s journey, and

Christopher Lloyd Wants Back to the Future 4 to Tackle Climate Change and Other Issues

Christopher Lloyd Wants Back to the Future 4 to Tackle Climate Change and Other Issues
Some of you may know this about me by this point in time, but for those of you that don't, my favorite movie of all time is Robert Zemeckis' Back to the Future Part II. Wait, not the original Back to the Future, you might ask. Nope. I love the original, of course, but the second film is my favorite. Bar none. And thus you could imagine that every day I await word on another flick in the classic series. While that seems like it will not happen in Robert Zemeckis' lifetime, today we do have word that Doc Brown himself Christopher Lloyd would love to return for Back to the Future 4 if it happens.

"That's a tricky, tricky deal. Because you don't want to do another one and disappoint. So I don't know. I'd be happy to, for myself. But we'll see," said Lloyd, now 80-years-old, at Niagara Falls Comic Con.

Same-er Things: Yesterday, Stranger Things and the painful lack of originality in Hollywood

Anghus Houvouras on Hollywood’s lack of originality…

I’m not sure if I can convey the cringe-inducing feeling I get while watching any of the marketing for the new film Yesterday. As soon as the voice over establishing the basic premise of the movie is spoken, my brain begins to boil.

“In a world where only one person remembers The Beatles…”

Before the sentence even finishes, the words ‘Fuck’ and ‘You’ and pinging around my brain like a pinball.

I’ll never watch this movie. In spite of loving Danny Boyle and being a normal red-blooded human who appreciates the music of the Beatles, I find the existence of a movie like Yesterday infuriating. It feels like the most salient example of creative impotence that is gripping Hollywood like flaccid tentacles. It’s a story completely reliant on the artistic efforts of other.

The Weirdest Godzilla Moments from the Toho Movies

James Hunt Jun 4, 2019

Think some parts of Godzilla: King Of The Monsters were crazy? Check out some of its non-Hollywood predecessors...

Since 1954, Godzilla has loomed large in popular culture. With 35 cinematic outings under his spines and a 36th (Godzilla vs. Kong) due for release next year, he’s the star of one of the longest-running and most prolific movie franchises ever, thanks to Japanese studio Toho.

One of the best things about Godzilla is that the idea is so simple it can work in almost any context. Across various media, Godzilla has been on sea, land, air, space, and (in one comic series) even the biblical Hell. He’s fought aliens, robots, King Kong, and the Avengers. There’s nothing this mutant monster can’t do.

And to prove it, here are some of crazier things we’ve seen him get up to in his non-Hollywood outings...

These Are the Time Travel Rules of ‘Avengers: Endgame’

These Are the Time Travel Rules of ‘Avengers: Endgame’
(This post contains most of the big spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame.” Just so you know.)

While most of the speculation and theories for what would happen in “Avengers: Endgame” were proven extremely wrong when we finally got to see the movie, but at least one major item that we all suspected would be included — based on a certain leaked set photo — turned out to be spot on.

That item? Time travel. A brand new concept for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The second act of “Avengers: Endgame” consists of the remaining Avengers — Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), along with an assist from Nebula (Karen Gillan) — going on a “time heist” to steal all the Infinity Stones from the past.

A Beginner’s Guide To James Cameron

In our latest beginner’s guide, Tom Jolliffe looks at the career of James Cameron….

Like many of the top directors, it didn’t happen overnight for James Cameron, now dubbed The King of the World (possibly by himself?). He worked in visual effects, and as an assistant director before getting his break in B pictures. It didn’t go so well the first time around, with Piranha II: The Spawning. He was quickly replaced during the shoot by an experienced producer (very much in the Roger Corman ilk) and not allowed in the editing process. Rumours have circulated in years since that Cameron broke into the editing suite to try and salvage his own vision. As you might expect from a film called Piranha II, it’s not brilliant, but Cameron has far from scrubbed it entirely from his memory banks or conversation.

5 Recent Horror Movies That We Hope Will Be The Start Of A Franchise (& 5 We Don't)

The most lucrative movies to be turned into franchises right now are comic book movies. But there’s always been a place for horror franchises at the multiplex, either an endless slew of slasher rehashes like Friday the 13th or an interconnected universe like Cloverfield. No moderately successful horror movie is safe from being forced into a franchise.

Link Tank: Japanese Spacecraft To Shoot Bullet At Asteroid

Spencer Mullen Feb 20, 2019

Japanese Spacecraft, Captain Marvel, Back to the Future, and more in today's daily Link Tank!

Goose the cat has already become the breakout character of Captain Marvel.

"A select few journalists have been able to preview Captain Marvel, and at the stroke of midnight Wednesday morning, they shared cursory reactions via social media. The general tone of the reactions is nothing short of effusive, showering Marvel and star Brie Larson with praise. The surprising Mvp in the film, however, seems like it’s scene stealers like Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, the shapeshifting Skrull villain, and everyone’s favorite McU feline: Goose the Cat."

Second Opinion – Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

Happy Death Day 2U, 2019.

Directed by Christopher Landon

Starring Jessica Rothe, Ruby Modine, Israel Broussard, Rachel Matthews, Suraj Sharma, Charles Aitken, Phi Vu, and Dean Bronson.

Synopsis:

Having survived repeatedly dying while being pursued by a masked killer, Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) discovers that this time around, she’s not the only one stuck in a murderous timeloop.

The timeloop narrative has been on repeat ever since Christopher Lloyd stuck Einstein in a Dolorean, but Hollywood has continually found ways to keep it fresh; comedy has given us Groundhog Day, the sci-fi angle was tackled by Edge of Tomorrow, and in 2017 Blumhouse Productions opened their Pandora’s box of horror to bring us hi-concept slasher Happy Death Day.

It turned out to be one of the most pleasantly surprising genre efforts of the year, largely thanks to a star-making performance from the eminently watchable Jessica Rothe, as the sorority house Phil Connors.

17 Classic Pizza Scenes in Movies, From ‘Do the Right Thing’ to ‘Deadpool’ (Videos)

  • The Wrap
17 Classic Pizza Scenes in Movies, From ‘Do the Right Thing’ to ‘Deadpool’ (Videos)
You’ll be hard pressed to find a franchise that has found such longevity in such a ridiculous concept as “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The “Tmnt” series is loaded with bizarre quirks, with one of the most famous being the turtles’ undying love for pizza. It’s one of the most well-known examples of this foodstuff in modern cinema, but it’s far from the only one.

Arguably the most iconic moment in Mike Myers‘ career is his lampooning of product placement deals in “Wayne’s World,” a scene that starts with him taking a nice bite of some Pizza Hut with the logo on the box perfectly angled towards the camera.

Lenny’s Pizza on 86th Street in Brooklyn became immortalized by “Saturday Night Fever,” when John Travolta asked for a couple slices from the pizzeria during the movie’s famous opening credits sequence.

Elijah Wood movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Lord of the Rings,’ ‘Eternal Sunshine,’ ‘The Ice Storm’
To many, he will always be Frodo Baggins, the brave little furry-footed hobbit who volunteers to bear the burden of carrying the dreaded One Ring as he leaves his bucolic existence behind while sacrificing himself to save Middle-earth in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

But Elijah Wood, who turns 38 on January 28, has had quite a varied career beyond the Shire ever since he made his film debut at 8-years-old with a small part as Video Game Boy #2 in 1989’s “Back to the Future Part II.” He would go on to land the coveted central role in the epic fantasy franchise based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s enduring classic when he was 18. But his early output on the big screen consisted of a string of so-so ‘90s titles such as “Radio Flyer,” “Paradise” and “Forever Young.” However, he often earned praise for his part in even mediocre projects.

2019: Welcome to Blade Runner Year

Tom Jolliffe looks back at Blade Runner as we enter the year it was set…

Remember when 2014 was coming to an end? There was a clamour of snorting giggles as people bemoaned the impending 2015’s lack of self drying clothes, flying cars, hydropizza and hover-boards. Granted, Back to the Future Part II did get a few things right, like a shift to more environmentally friendly power sources, as well as a retro fascination. Maybe in the mid-80’s, Robert Zemeckis et al realised that they were in the best era ever, and future generations, or misty eyed nostalgia fiends, would look back obsessively over the decade with themed cafes etc.

Well, another sci-fi opus from yesteryear, set in a distant, slightly dystopian future, has now caught up with reality. We have now entered 2019, Blade Runner year. Lets be honest here, Blade Runner is iconic cinema. It’s a beloved classic

Ricky Church reports on the Back to the Future legacy panel at Fan Expo 2018…

Every now and then in the movie industry, there comes along one film that breaks through the mould to become a seminal and beloved part of pop culture. Jaws, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, Star Wars are all examples of such films. One film, though, that accomplished this to a great degree in Robert ZemeckisBack to the Future and its subsequent sequels in the trilogy.

At the Fan Expo convention in Toronto, Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Tom Wilson got together to talk with the fans on their experiences making Back to the Future and its enduring legacy.
