Review: A Wrinkle in Time

  • Comicmix
Much has been made of the budget allotted to the big screen adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel A Wrinkle in Time and how Director Ava DuVernay was a woman tackling something so massive. That’s a lot of press and pressure on a risky venture considering the novel may be beloved but not in the public consciousness. Thankfully, there have been other hits and misses to take attention away from the fact that this entertaining effectively flopped.

The movie, out today on Blu-ray from Walt Disney Home Entertainment, is a solid if flawed adaptation, that somehow missed the magical touch to enthrall younger viewers. As a result, the film is hovering near the $100 million domestic gross with prognosticators estimating it will lose the studio at least that much.

And that’s a shame because it deserves to be seen. The movie is colorful, visual treat that fully realizes L’Engle’s worlds,

Demi Lovato Defends Her Las Vegas Prank Involving Her Bodyguard and a "Lady of the Night"

Sorry, she's not sorry. Demi Lovato recently opened up about the funniest prank she ever pulled — but the story completely backfired on the singer. According to Demi, she hired a sex worker to "surprise" her bodyguard while they were in Las Vegas, but her followers didn't find the "joke" so funny. "I hired a lady of the night in Vegas and sent her to Max's hotel room to surprise him," she wrote in a since-deleted tweet. "She walked into his room without his permission and grabbed him hin his 'area' and he freaked the f--k out hahahahaha." Soon, fans were calling out Demi for the insensitive prank, with many believing it was a form of sexual abuse. However, the former Disney Channel star defended herself, writing, "I swear I could tweet something about craving jelly beans and it would offend someone." For all of those coming at me rn, listen

UAE Founder Sheikh Zayed Biopic in the Works From STXfilms

STXfilms is developing a biopic based on the life of the late Sheikh Zayed, the former president of the United Arab Emirates and ruler of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Shekhar Kapur, whose credits include “Elizabeth” and “Elizabeth: The Golden Age,” has signed on to direct the film. Cliff Dorfman will write the screenplay.

STXfilms made the announcement Thursday, noting that Sheikh Zayed was instrumental in the formation of the UAE in 1971 and is credited with transforming the emirates into a modern progressive state, attempting, as the nation’s first president, to create a world of coexistence and peace.

The studio said Zayed, who died in 2004, was considered a liberal ruler for the time period and became known for promoting tolerance, universal human values, women’s rights, and environmental protection, and carried out major reforms to the UAE’s education, healthcare, public housing, and urban development. He was also one

A List Of Possible Titles For Wonder Woman 2 Have Surfaced

I’m not nearly as harsh on the DC Extended Universe as others may be, as I think – despite some missteps – that there’s a lot to enjoy about what’s been served up thus far. Still, I must concede that its finest offering to date was that of the Amazon Warrior’s first solo movie, so I’m right there with anyone else who’s eagerly anticipating Wonder Woman 2.

Of course, it’s assumed that’s merely a placeholder title because numbering DC movies just hasn’t been the modus operandi of Warner Bros. since the days of Christopher Reeve’s Superman. Granted, not many other heroes from this brand aside from Batman have been granted sequels in the time since, but you can’t deny the pattern that’s emerged.

So, before we move on, let’s go over what we do know about Diana Prince’s next adventure.

Zack Snyder Shares Wonder Woman Image From Justice League Deleted Scene

By now, you’re probably aware of how much footage didn’t make it into the version of Justice League that we ultimately received in theaters, thus leading to demand that the fabled Zack Snyder cut see the light of day. And while the home video release did indeed contain a few extra treats involving Superman, it’s one of DC’s other A-listers that we’re here to discuss today.

We are, of course, talking about Wonder Woman, who rose up and became one of 2017’s greatest box office powerhouses. Truth be told, one would think her inclusion would’ve naturally spelled likewise success for Justice League, but that unfortunately wasn’t the case. Given that, it’s understandable as to why Gal Gadot is front and center in various examples of cover art for the Blu-ray and other formats.

Tying into all this is Snyder himself, who seems

Joss Whedon Defends His Ill-Fated Wonder Woman Script

When it comes to how DC on film’s history could’ve gone much differently, canned movies such as Superman Lives, Batman Unchained and Justice League Mortal are often among the first that come to mind. But, believe it or not, a certain Amazon Warrior nearly came to the silver screen a decade or so ago when Joss Whedon had been hired to pen a Wonder Woman screenplay. In fact, if you go back and look at early printings of the Identity Crisis trade paperback, you’ll find an introduction written by him with that very project attached to his name!

For whatever reason, it slipped through the cracks over the years, with the property collecting dust until Patty Jenkins’ flick got off the ground. Still, Whedon’s script hasn’t gone unforgotten and even leaked last year. Personally, I hadn’t read it, so I can’t judge – I

‘Truth or Dare’ Film Review: Blumhouse College Horror Doesn’t Make the Grade

  • The Wrap
‘Truth or Dare’ Film Review: Blumhouse College Horror Doesn’t Make the Grade
The title of this horror movie on-screen is officially “Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare,” maybe to differentiate it from, say, “Madonna: Truth or Dare” or some other film based around this game, which may still be popular among more repressed high school and college students. Anyone who played truth or dare as a teenager will know that it usually ends badly, but not quite as badly or ludicrously as it does here.

The concept in this horror movie “Truth or Dare” is that the game itself is somehow possessed by a demon, and this means that, whenever a participant is possessed by said demon, they are forced to make the face that Karen Black makes at the end of the cult TV movie “Trilogy of Terror.” Black pulled that face just once at the end of the Zuni doll segment, but the unfortunate cast of “Truth or Dare” is forced to make it continually throughout the film, often with laughable results, even when it is accompanied (as it sometimes is) by red demon eyes.

Truth or Dare” begins with a battered-looking woman who grimaces into that Karen Black mug before lighting another woman on fire. We then meet the main characters of the film, young people who are all going down to Mexico for spring break. Director Jeff Wadlow (“Kick-Ass 2”) indulges in some split-screen effects under the credits to show us their progress and their drunken, obnoxious spring break revels. If the intention was to make us hate them and want to see them suffer, mission accomplished.

Olivia (Lucy Hale) is a petite brunette moralist, and her best friend Markie (Violett Beane, “The Flash”) is a blonde who is in mourning for her father, who recently committed suicide. Penelope (Sophia Ali, “Grey’s Anatomy”) has a drinking problem, and her boyfriend Tyson (Nolan Gerard Funk, “The Canyons”) is a medical student who sells prescriptions of Adderall and other drugs to fellow students. Lucas (Tyler Posey) is Markie’s boyfriend, and Brad (Hayden Szeto, “The Edge of Seventeen”) is a gay guy who is closeted to his family. Rounding out the cast is Ronnie (Sam Lerner, “The Goldbergs”), who acts aggressive to compensate for his feelings of inadequacy.

All of them are roped into playing a game of truth or dare by Carter (Landon Liboiron, “Frontier”), and the results are as expected, at first. Ronnie is made to give Tyson a lap dance, and Brad admits that he wouldn’t mind making out with Carter, but “Truth or Dare” is squeamish when it comes to sex or nudity. When Lucas is made to get naked, he runs around in the dark in such a way that we barely see any of his body.

The editing here by Sean Albertson (“Warrior”) is expert and fast and helps to move this enterprise along, but it can be a little abrupt, as when Brad moves in to kiss a guy during spring break, and the camera cuts away as soon as it can. (Does this count as some kind of progress in depicting a same-sex kiss of any kind in a studio movie?)

There is a very suspenseful and well-shot sequence where Penelope is walking along the edge of a roof of a house while drinking, and Olivia and her friends have to try to save her, but Wadlow falters whenever he has to rely on Google searches and Facebook clicking to give us plot exposition. You can’t avoid texting and online searching in movies now because that’s the way we live our lives, but no one has been able to make this cinematically exciting yet, unfortunately.

The premise of “Truth or Dare” is needlessly convoluted, and it is overloaded with information and side characters. By the time Olivia is driving down to Mexico to meet a deus ex machina nun named Sister Inez (Vera Taylor) to solve the mystery of why they have been possessed by this game, “Truth or Dare” has entered pretty absurd territory.
