Locarno 2018. Mariano Llinás's "La Flor", Part 3

“It’s been a pleasure,” Mariano Llinás politely informs us between Episodes 4 and 5 of this film’s 320-minute, thorny third part, before he hits the road in his blue Volvo and leaves La Flor’s loyal viewers in his rear-view mirror. After the sizable, solitary Part 2, Part 3 is formed in fits and starts, a crucial and challenging Episode 4 followed-up by flash fictions, a further two curiosities that anticlimactically conclude the 14-hour La Flor. For the first time, the viewer re-enters the film with the knowledge that, in however-many hundred minutes that remain, La Flor, at last, will cut to black—and indeed there is something stress-inducing involved in watching our showman-storyteller Mariano Llinás carry his project across the finish line. Even an abrupt, unresolved ending is still an ending, and in spite of all evidence to the contrary, a viewer at the beginning of Part 3 would wonder if the sum

Arrow: The Complete Sixth Season Blu-ray Review

Having to keep track of so many series these days, there are very few that I make it a point to acquire each and every season. After all, a person has only so much time, money and shelf space. But when it comes to Arrow, I can’t help adding the next chapter to my collection once it arrives on home video.

That said, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed taking in season 6 in its entirety over the past week or so. Though I did originally tune in to watch it live, I certainly didn’t mind a second tour on Blu-ray because there was just so much going on this year.

Long story short, the saga resumes not long after Team Arrow and friends were caught in the blast caused by Prometheus on Lian Yu, with pretty much everyone except the mother of Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) child making it out alive.

Guy Pearce Replaces Michael Sheen in Bloodshot as Shooting Begins

There's been a bit of a shake-up with Sony's Bloodshot movie. The Valiant Comics adaptation has been in the works for some time now and just recently kicked off production, as announced by star Vin Diesel on Instagram. Now, just as filming has gotten underway, one of the core cast members, Michael Sheen, has been forced to exit the project. He's set to be replaced by Guy Pearce, who entered the situation in a hurry as the studio was in need of a replacement rather quickly.

Michael Sheen, according to a new report, was forced to depart the project over scheduling conflicts. That left room for Sony to enter into negotiations with Guy Pearce, who is in talks to join the Bloodshot ensemble currently. Pearce is no stranger to comic book movies, having starred in Shane Black's Iron Man 3. He's also a well-regarded actor with years of experience under his belt,

Without the Beard, You'd Totally Recognize Oitnb's Co Stefanovic From Another Show
It's impossible to lust after the guards of Orange Is the New Black when they're treating the inmates the way they do, but behind the uniforms are some seriously talented actors. Co Stefanovic makes his series debut during season six of the Netflix show, where his sharp facial features and affinity for muscle gains immediately got my attention. Played by actor Josh Segarra, the sexy Co of Litchfield may have some questionable behaviors - barging in on the interrogation of inmates to make his microwave popcorn and telling Co Ward that he doesn't see the inmates as human beings, to name a few - but behind that beard and attitude is an actor we've seen quite a bit before.

Prior to starring on Oitnb, Segarra had many recurring roles, some even as similar officers of the law. He played Hector Ruiz on The Electric Company, Billy on Sirens, Justin Voight on Chicago P.

HBO’s Television Critics Association presentation has taken place this week, and it has offered up some snippets of information on the current state of Damon Lindelof’s adaptation of Alan Moore’s seminal graphic novel, Watchmen.

Deadline is reporting that the network’s programming president, Casey Bloys, discussed the pilot, which has been directed by Nicole Kassell, stating that he had “very, very high hopes”.

The pilot – which tells an original story set in the Watchmen universe – is yet to be given the green-light to go to series, but Bloys went on to say: “They did a great job. Damon wrote a phenomenal script, and Nikki Kassell did an amazing job shooting the show. I think we see it in a few weeks. So, we’ll see.”

10 Alien Facts You Never Knew

10 Alien Facts You Never Knew
"In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream." Long before Prometheus, Predators, and even poor Newt, Ridley Scott's Alien blew open the space doors for sci-fi horror. Here we'll take a look at 10 Things You Never Knew About Alien.

The Dune connection.

The story behind experimental filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky's cancelled adaptation of Dune is the stuff of movie legend, lovingly detailed in the 2013 documentary, Jodorowsky's Dune. Dan O'Bannon, who co-wrote the 1974 sci-fi comedy Dark Star with John Carpenter, was hired to supervise the special effects for Dune, where he also worked with Swiss artist H.R. Giger. When Dune collapsed, O'Bannon found himself sleeping on the couch of another writer, Ronald Shusett. O'Bannon would eventually reassemble much of the artistic team from Dune for Alien, including Giger, Ron Cobb, Chris Foss, and legendary French artist Moebius.

Star Beast.

O'Bannon showed Shusett a script he'd started back in 1972 but had never finished.

Arrow Casts The Longbow Hunters For Season 7

No doubt about it, Arrow has had some memorable big bads to call its own during the previous six seasons. No matter which you prefer, Malcolm Merlyn, Deathstroke, Ra’s al Ghul, Damien Darhk, Prometheus and Ricardo Diaz each brought something unique to the table. But as we head into season 7, we find ourselves in a different situation, for “The Dragon” is still in the wind.

This time, however, Diaz has other – and, perhaps, more loyal – folks backing him up in the form of the Longbow Hunters. Having previously been name-dropped at the tail end of season 6, these formidable adversaries have now been confirmed to appear in the coming year.

As it turns out, the live action version of the group will be rounded out by Holly Elissa as Red Dart, Michael Johnson as Kodiak and Miranda Edwards as Silencer. Call me crazy, but those three just sound like people

Unnecessary Reboots, Remakes and Sequels

Tom Jolliffe looks at Hollywood’s preoccupation with reboots, remakes and sequels…

I sit here in the year 2018. Suddenly I find myself compelled to moan about the unimaginative approach to greenlighting Hollywood studio pictures. This is not a new phenomenon, it’s old hat. As of now the vast majority of greenlit, large studio films are adaptations, sequels, reboots or remakes. The whole reboot, sequel and remake malarkey is now merging entirely into one thing.

Currently you have a new Terminator in production which is a reboot, described as a true sequel, which will conveniently forget everything after the second film. I can see why you’d want to forget those, of course, but given the fact that from Terminator 3 onward, every attempted new Terminator film has underwhelmed, you wonder why they bother. Likewise, we’re getting a new Halloween remakebootequel. It will essentially be just another Halloween, following the slasher formula,

The Predator Reshoots Will Add In More Callbacks To Previous Movies

Whereas we should all know better than getting excited about a new follow-up to the 1987 original horror/actioner Predator, there’s something about the timing of Shane Black’s The Predator that would make us glow red on a hunter’s thermal vision. This is especially true now that we’re hearing that those much discussed reshoots have resulted in the addition of a few further callbacks to previous films in the beloved series – while also re-working the third act, too.

As if the original Predator wasn’t badass enough, when this new incarnation finds itself challenged by a group of mercenaries for hire in a small rural town, we discover that it’s been learning all along and absorbing knowledge and skills from every previous hunt. Of course, that spells trouble for anyone who gets in the way.
