The Top Knot Detective Delivers A New Trailer! And A Pack Of Smokes!

just now

It was back in 2015 that we first wrote about the Top Knot Detective. Also known by the more literal title of Deductive Reasoning Ronin, Top Knot Detective was a cult Japanese television series explored in a documentary TV series by Aaron McCann and Dominic Pearce on Australian television. Or was it? This ‘documentary’ unravels the tale of how ‘Ronin Suiri Tantai’ made it to Australian screens back in the late 90’s, retitled as Top Knot Detective, and what really happened behind the scenes of this outrageous show. The original Japanese series was legendary in its home country as being a cultural train-wreck, led by its insane writer/director/star, Takashi Takamoto. The rivalry between Takashi and costar, Haruto Koike, is just the tip of this conspiratorial...

Adrien Brody Joins Peaky Blinders

3 minutes ago

With production freshly under way on the fourth series of Steven Knight's Peaky Blinders the BBC have announced that Oscar winning actor Adrien Brody has joined Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy and Helen McCrory in the cast of the period gangster series. When he receives a mysterious letter on Christmas Eve, Thomas Shelby realises that the Peaky Blinders are in danger of annihilation. As the enemy closes in, Shelby flees his country house and returns to the streets of Small Heath, Birmingham, where a desperate fight for survival begins. It's hard to say from that series synopsis what role Brody will play. Hardy's character - Jewish gangster Alfie Solomons - has taken such an ambiguous role opposite in relation to Murphy's Thomas Shelby that it's every...

Boston Underground 2017 Review: Bitch, A Hilarious and Vicious Bite at the Patriarchy

34 minutes ago

I doubt you would ever meet a woman who couldn't tell you about how, on a near daily basis, she must endure being dismissed, ignored or mistrusted by men. According to many, we are oversensitive, we exaggerate, we just 'need to relax'. The nature of this mistrust of women is so pervasive, especially in western culture, that most men (even those who consider themselves feminist) don't even realize that they are a part of it. And so when women act craz, maybe, just maybe, she was trying to tell you something for a long time, and you didn't listen. This is something of a starting point for Marianna Palka's fourth feature film, Bitch. Palka takes the 'title' role of Jill, a housewife and mother of...

Ghost In The Shell: Final Trailer Delivers Fresh Footage

1 hour ago

Rupert Sanders' adaptation of landmark manga and anime Ghost In The Shell hits the big screen on Friday and one last final trailer has arrived to prime audiences for what is coming. Once again, Scarlett Johansson in her tight fitting thermoptic suit is a major selling feature and while there is a decent amount of new footage in this latest effort I don't see much of anything likely to sway opinions from where they are already set. While aspect of the visual work here are absolutely gorgeous there's also quite a lot that doesn't really seem to be landing properly. Anything in low light, basically, feels quite murky and drab and out of step. And as much as I like Pilou Asbaek as an actor...

Our Favorite Faces Of Jake Gyllenhaal

1 hour ago

Truth be told, I haven't seen Daniel Espinosa's Life yet. Recently I watched (and sometimes re-watched) a string of underwater monster films, so the itch I had for claustrophobic man-vs-creature film has been royally scratched. The one thing that might urge me towards a cinema to still go see it, is actually the presence of Jake Gyllenhaal. Because for the last few years, he or his agent (and probably both) have displayed an uncanny knack for choosing extremely good projects to display his talents in. At the moment, Jake's involvement is almost a blind buy, a strong seal of approval. It helps that the man has done some stellar acting, whether he plays a quirky lovable goofball or a disturbed creep. So, what are your...

Bryan Sloyer Battles His Inner Demons For Redemption In This Incredible Action Short

2 hours ago

I've come across a lot of really great shortfilms online by filmmakers within the stunt community. The action, for the most part, has been some of the best anyone will ever see apart from the big screen, and I always make sure to find projects that encompass that when I'm doing coverage at my own site, although few impress me as much as Bryan Sloyer has in about the past three years. When he's not on set doing stunts or other, he's making his own material to host on his YouTube channel where you'll find his most recent short, The Magician now online. But I'm not here to talk about that. I'm here to talk about Redemption, which he posted back in July of last...

Crowdfund This: Jabronie Pictures's DC Comics-Inspired Harley Webseries Needs Your Help

3 hours ago

The last thirteen years have been an adventure watching the kind of amazing shortfilm work seen from actor, stuntman and filmmaker Fernando Jay Huerto (Battle Hero Absolute). Having established himself in 2001 with Jabronie Pictures, he and co-founder, actress Sunny Smith have continuously put together a body of work that varies in the realm of martial arts action, mingling with drama, sci-fi, comedic slapstick and wholesome humor, all of which have helped them grow the worldwide fanbase and network they now have with other creatives online. This also extends to his latest shortfilm, Harley, inspired by none other than the noted DC Comics property who took the big screen by storm in popularity through Margot Robbie's showstealing performance in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. In her...
