Drone – Review

12 hours ago

A few weeks before movie goers are immersed in Christopher Nolan’s recreation of one of the greatest World War II battles with Dunkirk, and a few days before a certain Amazonian princess and her sisters join the fight in the previous world war, this new film takes a look at modern warfare. Much as with the recent films like 2014’s Good Kill and last year’s critically lauded Eye In The Sky, this new work focuses on a way of combat that’s, for want of a better word, impersonal. You don’t have to breathe in the same air as your enemy, you don’t ever have to set foot on the battlefield. You can sit in an air-conditioned office or cubicle, sip a cool drink while watching a near silent video transmission on your monitor. Killing is much more civilized (?), when you’re pushing a few buttons and command a Drone. »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales – Review

13 hours ago

“Pirates of the Caribbean” sets sail for one more adventure at sea, in what is being hinted to be the final chapter in the franchise, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The result is mixed, with the good being Javier Bardem and Geoffrey Rush as villains, great visual effects, and a nice, satisfying ending. The bad being having to endure an over-long, nonsensical plot with sporadic moments of entertainment to get there.

Ok, everyone has a guilty pleasure, and mine might be pirates. As a fan of all things pirate, including silly pirate movies, it was a delight when the first Pirates Of The Caribbean, Disney’s attempt to turn an amusement park ride into a movie, »

Baywatch – Review

22 hours ago

Baywatch begins so promisingly! Dwayne Johnson as Mitch Buchannon, chief lifeguard of Baywatch, dives into treacherous waters to rescue a drowning parasailer. He then rises from the water grinning ear-to-ear as dolphins leap in the background and the movie’s title, sculpted in stone, rises from the ocean. This opening sets a perfectly silly tone but one that the film can’t maintain as things slowly go downhill from there. Don’t’ get me wrong –  Baywatch is good, and I’ll be seeing it again opening weekend, but it’s a far cry from the masterpiece I think we were all expecting. Time to silence that Oscar buzz.

The elements are here for epic summer indulgence – vulgar comedy, explosive action, a dream cast, a vamping Bollywood superstar, cameos from the TV show’s original stars, and a sea of fine bikinied bottoms. So how do they screw up the big-screen Baywatch reboot? »

The Wedding Plan – Review

23 hours ago

We’re less than a week away from June, the big wedding month, so let’s head, not to the chapel, but to the multiplex to catch a new nuptials flick. This new one is about an ultra-determined bride who has set a deadline to walk down the aisle. The non-refundable deposit is down for the hall, the reception, and the facilities, but the only part of her plan that’s missing is the groom. Ah, another zany, frothy “rom-com”, much in the style of 27 Dresses and Bride Wars (perhaps Heigl, or Hudson are in this one). you would think. Well, you would be wrong. Sure there are flashes of humor, but this new film ties the wedding to a test of faith. For this new take on “the big day” is from Israel, and its heroine is an Orthodox Jew. There are no wacky hi-jinks involving cake tasting and »

Last Men In Aleppo Screens This Weekend at Webster University

24 May 2017 7:47 PM, PDT

Last Men In Aleppo screens Friday, May 26th through Tuesday May 30th at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood). The movie starts each evening at 8:00pm.

Winner of the Grand Jury Documentary prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad’s breathtaking work – a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage – follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets, an organization comprised of ordinary citizens who are the first to rush towards explosions in the hope of saving lives. Incorporating moments of both heart-pounding suspense and improbable beauty, the documentary draws us into the lives of three of its founders – Khaled, Subhi, and Mahmoud – as they grapple with the chaos around them and struggle with an ever-present dilemma: do they flee or stay and fight for their country.A gripping portrait of extraordinary bravery, Last Men in Aleppo provides a stirring new perspective on a conflict reshaping our world. »

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk To Play At BFI Southbank On July 13

24 May 2017 1:02 PM, PDT

Running from 1-31 July, BFI Southbank are delighted to present a season of films which have inspired director Christopher Nolan’s new feature Dunkirk (2017), released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 21 July.

Christopher Nolan Presents has been personally curated by the award-winning director and will offer audiences unique insight into the films which influenced his hotly anticipated take on one of the key moments of WWII.

The season will include a special preview screening of Dunkirk on Thursday 13 July, which will be presented in 70mm and include an introduction from the director himself.

Christopher Nolan is a passionate advocate for the importance of seeing films projected on film, and as one of the few cinemas in the UK that still shows a vast amount of celluloid film, BFI Southbank will screen all the films in the season on 35mm or 70mm.

In 2015 Nolan appeared on stage alongside visual artist »

Opening June 16th, 2017 is The Book Of Henry.

In honor of National Brother’s Day, take a look at this new clip from the film.

Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter (Naomi Watts) works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila (Sarah Silverman). Her younger son Peter (Jacob Tremblay) is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything in his own unique way is Susan’s older son Henry (Jaeden Lieberher), age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother – and, through investments, of the family as a whole – Henry blazes through the days like a comet.

Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry’s kind classmate Christina (Maddie Ziegler), has a dangerous secret – and that Henry has »

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man: Homecoming Trailer Is Crazy Fun

24 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT

Sony Pictures has released a lively new trailer for Spider-man: Homecoming.

In his review for Captain America: Civil War, Jim Batts says:

“…the breakout new addition to the Marvel movie universe may be Tom Holland as Peter Parker, the amazing Spider-Man. Holland (so great in the 2012 disaster drama The Impossible), brings a vulnerable charm to Pete while exuding boyish enthusiasm (and lots of “smack talk” chatter) to ole’”webhead”, stealing every scene, and leaving us anxiously awaiting his screen return in Spider-man: Homecoming. Now this is our Spidey!”

This is bound to be one of biggest hits of the Summer!

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-man: Homecoming.

Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei »
