‘Overdrive’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Scott Eastwood, Ana de Armas, Freddie Thorp, Gaia Weiss, Simon Abkarian | Written by Michael Brandt, Derek Haas | Directed by Antonio Negret

Andrew and Garrett Foster (Scott Eastwood and Freddie Thorp) are not only exceptional drivers but are also known for being the best car thieves in the world. In Marseille, they steal a rare and priceless Bugatti 1937 from the local mafia boss Jacomo Morier (Simon Abkarian). In exchange for their lives Morier decides to use their talents for his own profit and to get back at his arch rival. Whilst seemingly agreeing to work with Morier the brothers have actually devised a much more daring plan…

Gone in Sixty Seconds meets 2 Fast 2 Furious… that’s probably the best way to describe Overdrive, a French production from Taken director Pierre Morel that feels like a Luc Besson take on That supercar franchise (before it became all about The Rock and

Longtime Weinstein Collaborator Calls Out Hollywood: Everybody Knew

Longtime Weinstein Collaborator Calls Out Hollywood: Everybody Knew
Scott Rosenberg, a Hollywood producer and screenwriter of movies such as Beautiful Girls, Gone in 60 Seconds, and High Fidelity, wrote a long piece about his old friend and collaborator, Harvey Weinstein. In the long scathing essay, Rosenberg called out everybody in the entertainment business for knowing about his sexual predatory behavior for years and never saying anything. The screenwriter/producer also took time out to apologize for being complicit during all of these years in what has become a major headline across the world over the last few weeks.

Scott Rosenberg took to Facebook earlier this week to not only condemn Harvey Weinstein's behavior, but also call out the entertainment industry for knowing about Weinstein's misconduct for decades, himself included. While Rosenberg claims that people didn't know about heavier accusations, he claims that everybody knew about Harvey Weinstein's aggressive behavior while stating he knew because everybody reportedly talked about it together.

Overdrive movie review: dumb and dubious

MaryAnn’s quick take… More plot holes than plot, this overly convoluted, deeply stupid Fast and Furious wannabe is crammed with clichés and memorable only when it’s laughable. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Kinda like how John Woo always has doves in his movies, and Steven Spielberg always has lens flare, so shall Colombian director Antonio Negret be known for exploding cars flipping through the air. It’s not a particularly unique visual twitch to embrace, this is true, but he’s not a particularly distinctive sort of filmmaker. His latest, Overdrive, is barely distinguishable from his previous film, 2012’s almost hilariously terrible Transit. Sadly, though, Overdrive is quite distinguishable from the movies it would like to be seen as akin to, the very early Fast and Furious movies (like, the first two

Top Ten Tuesday – Baby Driver Opens This Week, So Here Are the Best Car Chase Movies of the 1970’s

There’s nothing like a good car chase in a movie. Maybe it’s the daring-do of the stunt drivers that makes you feel you’re in danger even though you’re comfortably in your seat, or the high stakes of the moment in which the characters we’re rooting for will either get out of the situation or have a gruesome finale, but an impressive car-chase scene can make even a mediocre movie a beloved classic. What makes a car chase legendary, you ask? They’re the ones that keep you at the edge of your seat and actually fit in with the rest of the plot.

Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver opens Wednesday, June 28th. Baby (Ansel Elgort), is an innocent-looking getaway driver who gets hardened criminals from point A to point B, with daredevil flair and a personal soundtrack running through his head. That’s because he

The 50 Greatest Car Chases in Film: Part 2

  • Cinelinx
The Fast and Furious movies aren't the only ones with great car chases. Join us as we take a look at the 50 best car chase scenes in film. This week, we're counting down from #25 to #1!

Like peanut butter and jelly, car chases and movies are two things that just go together perfectly. A chase is inherently interesting to watch - someone is trying their best to get away by any means possible, while the other party is trying to stop them from doing so. The danger involved, the threat of violence, and even the thrill of the hunt are all part of why we often can’t look away. A car chase is the next level of chase. They are fast - an embodiment of man and machine together. They are also dangerous - the stakes are incredibly high, and not just for the people involved in the chase.

The Tao of Nicolas Cage: Gone in 60 Seconds

Before Dom was flexing his muscles Cage was getting fast and furious in order to protect his family.

This weekend movie theaters are going to be packed with hordes of people eager to check out The Fate of the Furious, the 8th film in the unexpectedly super popular Fast and Furious franchise. And that’s all fine and well. I enjoy the films; they’re dumb, stupid, exciting fun. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever, but we must remember that a year before Dom and his crew ripped off Point Break, the legendary Nicolas Cage was snatching up cars left and right and doing so in under 60 seconds.

Of course I’m going to talk about Gone in 60 Seconds.

Cage stars as the Memphis Raines, a notorious car thief that retired a number of years back in an effort to go straight. And he does. Memphis is working at a little go-kart track for kids, teaching

The Tao of Nicolas Cage: The Cage Cage

Step inside a wonderful cage where all your wildest fantasies become reality.All the Cage.

Earlier this week the esteemed and never grumpy Christopher Campbell brought to my attention a brand-new Vr simulation called ‘The Cage Cage.’ At Cage my interest was piqued, but at double the Cage my full attention turned towards this new creation.

My first step was to visit TheCageCage.com and so that’s what I did. Upon my arrival I was greeted with a wonderful picture of Nicolas Cage and the following note: “This is a Vr simulation of what it’s like to be trapped in a cage and forced to watch Nic Cage movies.”

This is exactly as it sounds. ‘The Cage Cage’ places you in the center of a cage and you’re surrounded by a wall of Nicolas Cage clips.

As I tried to take this all in I was overwhelmed with a wave of emotions. Watching

Surprise! A Venom Movie is coming in October 2018

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Hot of the press from Sony Pictures headquarters, and quite frankly completely unexpected, comes the news that finally, after being announced over a year ago, the Venom movie is set for an October 5th 2018 release date, filling the slot nicely that James Wan’s Aquaman has just vacated.

Rumours are currently flying as to who the director may be, and The Mummy and The Amazing Spider-Man director, Alex Kurtzman, looks to be in the lead especially after being announced by box office data providers Exhibitor Relations Co But this is yet to be confirmed by the studio.

Alex Kurtzman, writer of The Amazing Spider-man 2 and director of The Mummy reboot will be at the helm of Sony's Venom.

— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) March 16, 2017

The production of Venom has had a faltering start since 2014 when it was initially planned around the same time as the Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Alex Kurtzman Not Confirmed To Direct Venom, But The Movie Has New Writers

Earlier today, Sony’s planned Venom movie finally secured a 2018 release date, one that Aquaman originally held before Warner Bros. moved it, but it appears as if reports of The Mummy‘s Alex Kurtzman taking the helm were premature. The Hollywood Reporter has now revealed that he’s not currently attached to the project and that Venom is without a director at the moment.

What the film does have, however, is a fresh set of writers, as the trade reveals that the latest draft of the screenplay by Dante Harper is set to be rewritten by the team of Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. Both men worked on the upcoming Jumanji reboot together, while Rosenberg’s previous projects have included Con Air and Gone In Sixty Seconds. Pinkner, meanwhile, contributed to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The Dark Tower.

'Baby Driver': Film Review | SXSW 2017

'Baby Driver': Film Review | SXSW 2017
A movie-as-mixtape with few slots available for catch-your-breath downtempo tracks, Edgar Wright's rollicking Baby Driver is a Gone in 60 Seconds for the La La Land crowd, a True Romance that relishes the long wait before its young lovers can finally go on the lam. A crime-flick love story as Pop-conscious as Wright's earlier work but unironic about its romantic core, it will delight the director's fans but requires no film-geek certification; given smart marketing, it should connect easily with multiplex auds.

Though it makes the most of its top-shelf talent, slotting Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and Kevin Spacey smartly...
