The Titan movie review: bad science, worse science fiction

MaryAnn’s quick take… The science is ludicrous, the story is almost entirely free of drama, and the finale descends into the hoariest, most ridiculous clichés of the genre. But the future smart-house porn is lovely. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big science fiction fan

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

Oh, dear. Are we present at the birth of a new subgenre of science fiction films that might be dubbed Future House Porn? Because that’s what the feature debut of German filmmaker Lennart Ruff mostly looks like. The Titan is ostensibly the story of a Nato experiment in the year 2048 to retrofit some astronauts so they can live on the surface of Saturn’s moon Titan without any protective gear or even, as we later see,

The Grudge Reboot Scares Up Summer 2019 Release Date

The Grudge reboot has locked down a 2019 summer release date. Sony is currently hoping to get in on the good days that horror has been enjoying at the box office in recent years by revisiting something that has done well for them in the past. They're currently getting the pieces in place so their reboot of The Grudge can get underway. It's apparently going well, as the studio has locked down an August release date for next year, putting it at the tail end of the summer movie season.

Sony will release The Grudge on August 16 of next year. Currently, the only other major release coming that day is from Universal in the form of an untitled event movie. It's possible that whatever this event movie is, or was going to be, Universal may end up moving it since it hasn't been announced yet. Or, since event implies some sort of blockbuster affair,

Justice League Dark May Feature Cameos For Doctor Fate, Detective Chimp And More

Of all the Dceu films currently in the works over at Warner Bros., the one that’s having the toughest journey to the screen is Justice League Dark.

A few years back, Guillermo del Toro was attached to the production, before Doug Liman took over. Of course, he’s since vacated the project as well, leaving Dark without a director. Our last update came back in August when Gerard Johnstone, director of 2014 horror Housebound, was said to be providing a redraft of the script for the supernatural superhero film. Aside from that, however, all’s been quiet – until today.

That Hashtag Show has provided us with some new details on Johnstone’s screenplay for Justice League Dark, revealing that a bunch of familiar DC characters will appear in at least one scene of the movie. According to Ths, “the current script features a trip to Eddie Deacon’s pocket dimension bar,

At Long Last, The First Trailer For Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Terry Gilliam's long-awaited The Man Who Killed Don Quixote actually exists! The first international trailer has been released to prove it and it looks wonderful. After all of these years, and all the problems this production has faced, Gilliam has finally made his passion project. The film stars Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) in the role of Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote. As a fan of Gillam's film work, I couldn't be more excited about this!

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby, an advertising executive, for his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century. Gradually, like the infamous knight himself, Toby becomes

How Goose Got His Nickname in Top Gun

How Goose Got His Nickname in Top Gun
Top Gun celebrated its 30th anniversary 2 years ago, and since then, Tom Cruise has announced that the sequel is in the works with filming set to begin soon. However, there are a lot of questions concerning this sequel, and number one is: Will Val Kilmer be back as Ice Man? Ice Man can most certainly return, but Anthony Edwards' Goose can't unless he comes back as Goose Ghost, which the actor pitched on late night TV last year. While Goose can't come back to hang with his literally old friend Maverick now, he's opted to explain where the nickname Goose came from.

In a new interview, Anthony Edwards discussed the iconic 1986 movie Top Gun. Specifically, Edwards talked about where the name Goose originated from for his character. As it turns out, Nick "Goose" Bradshaw wasn't that great of a pilot, or at the very least had a poor memory.

Demian Bichir and John Cho join Andrea Riseborough in The Grudge

Earlier this month it was reported that Andrea Riseborough (Oblivion) was joining Ghost House Pictures’ horror remake The Grudge, and now comes word from Variety that the actress is being joined by Demian Bichir (A Better Life) and John Cho (Star Trek Beyond).

The film, a new take on the 2004 movie (which was itself based upon the 2002 Japanese horror Ju-on: The Grudge) is being written and directed by Nicolas Pesce (The Eyes of My Mother), with Ghost House’s Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert producing.

“We are so excited about this new adaptation,” said Raimi. “We went back to the original source material to deliver a relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia.”

Hateful Eight Actor Demian Bichir Joins The Grudge Remake

Just in case you didn't know, Sony Pictures is developing a remake of the horror film The Grudge. According to Variety, Demian Bichir (Hateful Eight) and Andrea Riseborough (Oblivion) have been cast in the movie.

Sam Raimi is producing the movie through his Ghost House production company and it will be directed by Nicolas Pesce from a script that he wrote. I don't know why this movie is being remade again, I guess they feel there is still some life in the franchise. Raimi is excited about it though! He said this in a statement:

"We are so excited about this new adaptation. We went back to the original source material to deliver a relentless supernatural thrill ride that explores the horrors of American suburbia."

Who knows, maybe this Grudge remake will actually be a good and scary, but it's hard to be excited because of the fact that it's just another remake.

Top Gun: Maverick will reportedly start shooting in July

Back in May of last year, Tom Cruise promised that the long-rumoured sequel to Top Gun was “definitely happening” and could shoot in 2018, and sure enough, it seems like that is indeed the case.

According to Omega Underground, Top Gun: Maverick will begin principal photography in July, and will shoot through to Thanksgiving. As the site notes, Cruise had been circling a part in Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood but the role has since went to Brad Pitt,, so it’s possible that he faced some scheduling issues with the sequel. Either way, it seems that Paramount and Skydance have decided to move quickly given that Cruise has a gap in his schedule.

Top Gun: Maverick will see Cruise reprising his role as Maverick from the 1986 original, and reteams him with his Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski and original Top Gun producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

Top Gun 2 Will Finally Begin Production This Summer

Top Gun 2 Will Finally Begin Production This Summer
Top Gun 2 is gearing up to begin filming this summer. This is really happening and it's time to accept that fact. Talk of a possible Top Gun sequel has been brewing for a very long time, but things never really got going. However, starting last year, talks started getting serious and Tom Cruise decided to make it his next official project, following Mission: Impossible - Fallout, which is set to hit theaters on July 27. It looks like he'll be hopping straight from the press tour for that movie to Top Gun 2, as a new report reveals that the studio hopes to begin filming on the sequel in July.

Paramount and Skydance Productions are said to be getting production going on Top Gun 2, which is officially titled Maverick, by July, which should give them just enough time to get the movie finished. They've already set a release date for July 12, 2019, meaning

Top Gun 2 Sets Summer Filming Start Date

Director Joseph Kosinski reportedly will begin production on Top Gun: Maverick this summer, ahead of the project’s scheduled 2019 release date. A sequel to the 1980s action classic starring Tom Cruise has been in development for a long time, but gained traction last year when Kosinski (Cruise’s Oblivion helmsman) officially signed on to direct. The story will revolve around an older Pete “Maverick” Mitchell training a new generation of pilots while adapting to the modern U.S. Navy. Oscar nominee Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle) was the latest writer to take a pass at the script.

After all that Gilliam has gone through in trying to make this film over the years, it's crazy that it actually got made.

The pair embark on a bizarre journey, jumping back and forth in time between the 21st and magical 17th century.

Only the Brave movie review: the men who tame wildfires

MaryAnn’s quick take… Familiar in its overall storytelling arcs about risktaking and redemption, but also a sincere tribute to our new firefighting heroes for a warmer planet. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have read the source material (though only after I’d seen the movie) (and I am indifferent about it)

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

New heroes for a hotter, more fiery planet? Could be. Elite firefighter “hotshots” are the guys who helicopter or hike into wildfires and break them, saving not just a house or two but entire towns, and also wildlife and nature, too. (They literally call themselves hotshots, and it’s tough to snort at this macho boasting because they’re so genuinely badass but also so beneficial, with no downsides. Their important work does not require, say, hurting or killing other people,

Only The Brave review

Josh Brolin headlines ensemble drama Only The Brave, telling the real-life story of heroic firefighters. Here's our review.

Following the template of sorts set by Peter Berg’s films Deepwater Horizon and Patriots Day, Only The Brave is another true story of genuine American heroes. It’s not clear from the start it’s a true story if you’re unfamiliar with the real life events behind the film, as instead, the movie gets going with introducing us to an ensemble bunch of frontline forest firefighters, who try to divert fires by, quite literally, lighting more fires.

The fire company is led by Eric Marsh, played by Josh Brolin, who gamely tries to outgruff Jeff Bridges, who in turn plays his boss. Marsh pushes for better resources for the group who become the Granite Mountain Hotshots, as their lives become engulfed by Arizona fire season, and the ongoing battle to keep flames at bay.
