The Star Wars Concept Trailer Brings Ralph McQuarrie's Vision to Life

13 hours ago

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, I was a 10 year old boy who loved everything Star Wars. Like many other fans, I pored over the original Art Of Star Wars books, which featured Ralph McQuarrie's breathtaking original concept art. Legend goes that his art was instrumental in getting 20th Century Fox on board to distribute the film, thereby allowing George Lucas to put his vision on the screen.  Of course, the movie we got was quite different than the one depicted in the concept art. Han Solo didn't end up with green skin and gills and Stormtroopers didn't use lightsabers. If you ever looked back at these early paintings and wondered what that Star Wars would have been like, then...

13 hours ago

Wormwood, all new 6-part Netflix series created by master documentarian Errol Morris, streams and also gets a limited release in theaters as a 240-minute film on December 15. Morris, known for his unique style and journalistic candor in finding the truth, achieves something truly unique and remarkable here. I had a chance to talk to one of the stars (in the narrative part of the series), Christian Camargo, a veteran stage actor, known for his dramatic roles in Dexter and Penny Dreadful. Camargo plays a conflicted military scientist who witnesses a murder of a fellow scientist and the government cover-up.  Eager to share his enthusiasm on the project, Camargo elaborates at length on what it's like working with Errol Morris, playing a real life character...

Review: 1987: When The Day Comes Offers Timely and Powerful History Lesson

13 December 2017 9:00 AM, PST

Save the Green Planet director Jang Joon-hwan mobilizes dozens of familiar faces, including The Chaser and The Yellow Sea stars Kim Yun-seok and Ha Jung-woo, for a weighty and powerful dramatization of the birth of Korean democracy. Following a slew of other politically-minded films, the sprawling protest drama 1987: When the Day Comes caps off what has been a tumultuous year for Korea that began with millions on the streets and resulted in the scandalous downfall of a polarizing head of state. In early 1987, student protester Park Jong-chul died as a result of excessive torture. In the months that followed, several people worked behind the scenes to keep the death under wraps while journalists, students and even rogue district attorneys and prison guards attempted...

Notes on Streaming: Diabolical Dark, Murderous Mindhunter

13 December 2017 7:00 AM, PST

In which two Netflix series seek to unsettle and undermine expectations. Let's talk about crime. In the 1970s, U.S. broadcast television networks were awash in weekly crime shows that wrapped up cases in less than an hour. Beginning with Hill Street Blues in 1981, that began to change to more serialized formats, as some cases carried over into multiple episodes; in 1993, NYPD Blue began crossing boundaries as far as the adult nature of content was concerned. More than 20 years later, the television landscape has expanded dramatically and the increasing popularity of streaming services means that Netflix can spend billions of dollars on content annually on an often bewildering variety of films and episodic shows; it's now available in more than 190 countries worldwide....

Review: Stray (2016), a chilling and deceptively simple indie thriller

12 December 2017 12:00 PM, PST

Stray is an indie crime (and psychological) thriller that thankfully doesn’t feel the same as every other low-budget pot-boiler out there. Thanks in part to a strong central performance, but also due to writer-director Nena Eskridge’s strong sense of style, the movie works as a twisted tale of murder and deceit which, despite descending into incoherency and implausibility during the third act, ended up leaving me with a nice aftertaste. Yes, it does look like it cost $60,000 to make (because it did), but despite its financial limitations (or maybe because of them), it boasts a very distinct and compelling look. Stray follows Jennifer (Gabrielle Stone), a murderous young woman who arrives at the small town of Chestnut Hill. She wants to build a new...

Review: Along With The Gods: The Two Worlds, Ambitious Fantasy Epic Indulges in Cheesy Backdrops and Melodrama

12 December 2017 11:00 AM, PST

Riding in on a wave of curiosity and anticipation, popular webcomic adaptation Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds, the opener of Korea's first simultaneously filmed two-part series, represents one of the biggest gambles in Korean film history. No Korean film has ever relied on so much VFX work and at a cost of roughly $36 million, failure would spell certain doom for the people behind it. The filmmakers have hedged their bets with an effects-heavy saga that is likely to appeal to teens while a bombastically melodramatic climax may seal the deal for older crowds in Korea as well. Though they need not worry about filing for bankruptcy just yet, the result is also an awkwardly plotted and tedious affair that is far more...

Review: Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Stronger Than Ever with the Force

12 December 2017 9:10 AM, PST

There’s nothing better than a great Star Wars movie. And this is a great Star Wars movie. In the interest of rightly remaining spoiler free, I’ll put forth that, generally speaking, The Last Jedi pulls off many things that The Force Awakens (the official Star Wars “Episode” prior to this one, for anyone living under a non-levitated rock) had a clunky time with. Part of it may be that Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams had a far more combustible situation on his hands; introducing a new generation of characters (among them, Daisy Ridley’s Force-ified Rey, Adam Driver’s fit-prone villain Kylo Ren, John Boyega’s reformed Stormtrooper Finn and Oscar Isaac’s hotshot X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron) while dishing up a Hutt-sized helping of original trilogy nostalgia. But,...

Review: Steel Rain, Bombastic Action-Drama Ponders Nuclear Armageddon

12 December 2017 9:00 AM, PST

The first of a trio of major end-of-year releases in Korea this winter, Steel Rain is the third North Korea-themed action-thriller of 2017 (following Confidential Assignment and V.I.P.) and easily its most bombastic. From The Attorney helmer Yang Woo-suk, who adapts his own webtoon of the same name, the threat of nuclear armageddon on the Korean peninsula has never been so great in a film that is as ambitious as it is disjointed. Leads Jung Woo-sung and Kwak Do-kwon reunite just over a year after Asura: The City of Madness. A rogue North Korean agent witnesses the beginning of a coup and shelters the country's leader when he falls into a coma. He escapes with the injured head of state to South Korea, where intelligence...

Review: The Chase Leads Us Down Familiar Path

12 December 2017 8:00 AM, PST

An intriguing, if admittedly low-key twist on the Korean serial killer chiller never really comes together in the mediocre The Chase, the third film from The Con Artists helmer Kim Hong-sun. Leading man Baek Yoon-sik (of Save the Green Planet fame) lays on a heavy accent as he shuffles through an incongruous medley of gore and levity that rarely strays from its middle-of-the-road trajectory. The elderly begin to turn up dead in Aridong, a grimy neighborhood in Southern Korea and the only person beginning to connect the dots is a curmudgeonly landlord who constantly pesters his tenants for rent. The cops write off the seemingly unconnected deaths as accidents but when a strange man appears before the landlord with some crazy theories, they both venture...

Have Your Say: Is 4Dx About Sense Or Nonsense?

12 December 2017 7:00 AM, PST

Last January, I mentioned in this series of articles that cinemas in the Netherlands were finally getting their frikkin lasers, and guess what: we're now getting frikkin moving chairs as well. Yes, the famous 4Dx logo has arrived at several theaters, and it carries a pretty heavy title to introduce itself with over here: Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Apparently it involves moving chairs, fog machines, smells, and for some films even rain. Oooooh! Of course this has left me with an extra choice to make: do I check my first screening of the new Star Wars with 4Dx or shall I settle for "regular" 3D IMAX? I've never been to a 4Dx screening before but it all sounds very gimmicky. Do I...

Blu-ray Review: Le SAMOURAÏ Examines A Solitary Life Lived In Gunmetal Grey

12 December 2017 6:00 AM, PST

It's a bit intimidating to be the one tasked with delivering an opinion on one the most beloved gangster fims ever made. The legendary Jean-Pierre Melville is one of French cinema's most revered filmmakers, and with good reason. Working adjacent to the agitators of the French New Wave, Melville instead provided a kind of bridge between the avant-garde and more commercial elements of the French film scene in the '50s and '60s. One of his pivotal works was this film, the iconic portrait of the solitary hitman Jef Costello (Alain Delon), Le Samouraï. Costello is a mob enforcer tasked with eliminating a night club owner, a hit with is played out to perfection, as are all of his jobs. However, Costello had no way of...

Our Favorite Faces Of Michael Shannon

11 December 2017 7:00 AM, PST

Water increases its volume when it gets close to freezing or close to boiling, and indeed Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water keeps expanding nicely, now that it's gaining some box office heat. The film is currently the number 13 film in the United States with just over a million dollars earned this week, which sounds underwhelming until you see the film plays in only 41 venues. To put this in context: the number 12 has 2,124 venues and the number 14 has 1,453 venues. Critics are generally raving about it (our Shelagh Rowan-Legg says it's Del Toro at his best), and this is in no small part due to the cast, which includes Sally Hawkins and Michael Shannon, both fantastic. So let's make...
