Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.27.16] documentary

Few directors make great adult thrillers as well as Brian De Palma. There's a deeply independent and in some cases, down right creepy, streak to his films and he's managed to keep that spirit alive for decades, sometimes to the detriment of his career. His output over the last 10 years hasn't really matched that of his early career but De Palma keeps pushing the envel... [Continue reading]

Simon Read [Celluloid 06.26.16] horror comedy

I’m not a big Kevin Smith fan, but I’m definitely not a hater either. I own some of his films, and I think that he can be really good. I don’t think for a moment that Yoga Hosers is Smith at his best, but then I don’t think that he does either. Before the screening the director appeared and basically told us that we wouldn’t like this fil... [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.24.16] comedy drama

Until the debut of Swiss Army Man, Daniels were best known for their music videos and commercials, all of which feature the pair's unique sense of comedy and visual style. Much to their benefit or detriment – depending on where you fall on their style – their feature film is exactly what one might expect from the pair of filmmakers: audacious, touching, ...

Christopher Webster [Celluloid 06.24.16] Spain cyberpunk scifi dystopic

there's a lot of garbage being supported on Kickstarter these days so it depresses me a little that Daniel Hernández Torrado's super impressive cyberpunk saga, Virtual, will likely not see the light of day based on the support so far. [Continue reading]

Marina Antunes [Celluloid 06.23.16] action

You can chalk up Mechanic: Resurrection to another sequel we didn't know we wanted and though some will argue that it's completely unnecessary, in a summer that is full of mostly crummy looking big blockbusters that take themselves far too seriously, what the world really needs is a little Jason Statham kicking ass. [Continue reading]

Simon Read [Celluloid 06.23.16]

The film has some extremely funny moments, generally borne out of the deliberately awkward acting, cheesy dialogue and imaginative costumes and sets, but there's an undercurrent to the story confronting the sticky subject of gender stereotypes and female empowerment – albeit in a light-hearted way. Overall the film feels a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the ideas h... [Continue reading (1 comment)]

Christopher Webster [Cathode Ray Mission 06.20.16] scifi thriller western

It's amazing to me how well good ideas travel. Take Westworld for example, the new HBO sci-fi series about artificial beings and a VR wonderland where people's fantasies can play out unfettered. With VR hitting consumers in a big way only this year, it seems like the most timely notion. And yet, the show is inspired by an idea for a 1973 film written by Michael Crich...

Simon Read [Celluloid 06.18.16] Denmark thriller drama

Although the story is, in itself, inherently interesting, the execution is frustratingly leaden, and as things unfold the characters' roles never expand beyond simple ciphers for the writers' fairly pedestrian message. The result is a film which occasionally promises to become genuinely gripping, but instead scores a series of repeated own goals, always forgoing any ... [Continue reading]

I've avoided this particular director as best as I've could for years, mostly out of an unshakable distaste of the person, but I couldn't dodge that particular bullet Honestly, one could have led a long and fruitful life without ever seeing it. Now my position as of late is to try and find something worthwhile in everything. That wasn't easy to come by in this case,... [Continue reading (2 comments)]

Sure, it's a bit creepy that Netflix monitors what we watch and how quickly but heck, if it means they'll continue to pump money into great original programming, I'm willing to let them know just how quickly I'm consuming their properties. And I can tell you this: "Stranger Things" definitely looks like something I'll be binging. [Continue reading (2 comments)]
