During last night’s season two finale of Supergirl, The CW aired a promo for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie, which sees Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl sporting some very familiar boots that she’s “borrowed by a friend”. Benoist is joined in the promo by co-stars Lynda Carter (the original Wonder Woman), Teri Hatcher (Lois & Clark’s Lois Lane), and Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers). Check it out here…

Movie Review – La Strada (1954)

47 minutes ago

La Strada, 1954.

Directed by Federico Fellini.

Starring Giulietta Masina, Anthony Quinn, and Richard Basehart.

Synopsis:

A care-free girl is sold to a traveling entertainer, consequently enduring physical and emotional pain along the way.

Entire essays could be written on Giuletta Masina’s face alone. There’s a childlike quality to her puppy dog eyes, her ability to express such sadness with a simple tilt of the head, or exuberance with a blink. If there was ever a face for the big screen, it was hers, and with the re-release of Federico Fellini’s tragic masterpiece, La Strada, once again she can be celebrated.

Although married to Fellini, he never found a role more purely “Masina” than that of doleful reluctant clown Gelsomina. When news of the death of her sister reaches Gelsomina and her poverty stricken family, she is forcefully sold for 10,000 lire to manipulative, drunken strongman Zampano (an indelible Anthony Quinn). The two travel, »

Hugh Grant set for A Very English Scandal

1 hour ago

The BBC has announced that Hugh Grant is set to star in the BBC One drama A Very English Scandal, which is being directed by Stephen Frears (The Queen) from a script By Russell T Davies (Doctor Who).

A Very English Scandal will tell the true story of MP Jeremy Thorpe, the first British politician to stand trial for conspiracy and incitement to murder. Beginning in the 1960s, when homosexuality had only just been decriminalized in the UK, the logline for the drama reads: “[Thorpe] has a secret he’s desperate to hide. As long as his ex-lover Scott is around, Thorpe’s brilliant career is at risk. Thorpe schemes and deceives — until he can see only one way to silence Scott for good. The trial of Thorpe changed society forever, illuminating the darkest secrets of the establishment. The Thorpe affair revealed such breathtaking deceit and corruption that, at the time, »

Exclusive: Paul W.S. Anderson’s thoughts on Resident Evil reboots and sequels

2 hours ago

The video game movie industry is in a renaissance at the moment. The Angry Birds Movie was a box office hit last year, and Warcraft made an incredible amount of money from the Chinese market alone. Since then we’ve seen adaptations of Tomb Raider and Rampage go into production, as well as more and more video game movies being be announced.

With Paul W.S. Anderson bowing out of the movie series he created with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Constantin Films announced over the weekend they were rebooting the franchise with James Wan producing a six-film series. While there were a few shocked reactions from fans, producer Samuel Hadida had hinted in 2012 that he wanted to reboot the franchise at some point, because that is the nature of Hollywood.

Adventure Time / Regular Show crossover announced by Boom! and Cartoon Network

3 hours ago

Boom! Studios and Cartoon Network have announced the upcoming release of the six issue comic book crossover Adventure Time/Regular Show, bringing together the casts of the two hit Cartoon Network series into one story.

“When you get the opportunity to put your little flag into the surface of not one, but two of the greatest story worlds in recent history, you gotta say yes!” said writer Conor McCreery. “I’m excited, terrified, tickled, and tormented by all the amazing characters and storylines that could go into this crazy thing. Adventure Time and Regular Show are special to me because of the combination of out-of-left-field humor and really deep emotion. I’m going to try to honor those twin engines as best I can with a story that has a Lot of weird stuff, a whack of battles, a few tears, and at least one incidence of Ice King being a patoot. »

The Rise of the Stupid Smart Character, or Why Helmets Matter

4 hours ago

Henry Bevan on the rise of the stupid smart character…

If you’ve been browsing this website over the last couple of days you will have noticed there has been a lot of Alien: Covenant content. We’ve published not one, not two but three reviews. We’ve written letters to David Fincher, we’ve talked about Ridley Scott, we’ve written comment pieces on why the franchise is exhausted, and others on why Covenant is the third best film in the franchise.

Don’t worry, this is not another article about the theologically minded space slasher. We don’t want to face-hug you to death. But, this comment piece will use the xenomorph’s favourite franchise to explore how blockbusters are increasingly having “smart” characters do some stupid shit.

Covenant is full of stupid shit. The crew land on an uncharted planet with only some guns for protection. They proceed to sniff black pods, »

Movie Review – Baywatch (2017)

5 hours ago

Baywatch, 2017.

Directed by Seth Gordon.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, and Jon Bass.

Synopsis:

A washed-up Olympic swimmer finds himself teaming up with a squad of elite lifeguards to uncover an international drug smuggling plot and save the beach they’re sworn to protect.

Based on a famously cheesy, and similarly ridiculous, long-running TV show of the same name, it’s worth lowering your expectations for Baywatch straight off the bat. And even if you had no expectations to begin with, it’s still somehow worth lowering them further: this is about as brainless as summer movies get. Half gross-out farce, half stupendously silly buddy cop actioner, guaranteed to righteously offend anyone with even half-an-ounce of intellectualism to their film tastes. Everyone else though, is guaranteed a whale of a time.

It’s been a long time since someone made a blockbuster »

The Zx Spectrum Next Kickstarter finishes with almost triple its wanted goal!

6 hours ago

The Zx Spectrum Next Kickstarter has now closed and they managed to reach their wanted target.  To say, “managed to reach” is however rather a massive understatement, as they blew it out of the water, for they in fact they nearly tripled their needed goal when the gates closed late yesterday evening.

Initially the Zx Spectrum Next team, led by Henrique Olifiers, had set their wanted goal at £250,000 Gbp, however within 48 hours this total had already been smashed.  To this they then set a cluster of ‘Stretch Goals’ and these to were easily passed, here then more people arrived including the Oliver Twins to announce that another Stretch Goal was being added, in this case a brand-new Dizzy title…Smashed; this continued.

Yesterday the final stretch goal sat unreached at £650,000 with just a few hours to go and then this too was broken and the total continued to rise, bringing »

Movie Review – Interlude In Prague (2017)

6 hours ago

Interlude In Prague, 2017.

Directed by John Stephenson.

Starring James Purefoy, Aneurin Barnard, Samantha Banks, Morfydd Clark, Adrian Edmondson, and Dervla Kirwan.

Synopsis:

Celebrated 18th century composer Mozart is brought to Prague by powerful Baron Saloka and, while there, starts to compose a new opera.  Despite being married, he also falls in love with young soprano Zuzanna Lubtak, but Saloka has his own plans for her – to make her his wife.  And, when he finds out that she and Mozart are lovers, he’s determined to put a stop to it.

Mention Mozart in the movies and there’s only one that comes to mind: Milos Forman’s brilliant Amadeus (1984).  So it takes a brave – or foolhardy – director to take on the subject again as it’s almost inevitable that the shadow of its illustrious predecessor will hang over it like a dark cloud.  Which is exactly what happens to Interlude In Prague. »

Twin Peaks Season 3 Episodes 1 & 2 Review

7 hours ago

Villordsutch reviews Twin Peaks Season 3 – Episodes 1 & 2…

Just over a quarter of a century – 26 years ago – Twin Peaks left our televisions with the deceased Laura Palmer informing both Special Agent Dale Cooper, along with the viewers of the show, that she will see us again in twenty-five years.  We didn’t expect this.  We received Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, a film which charted the final few days of Laura Palmer’s life (today people would dub it a prequel to the series) but we never actually expected Twin Peaks to return for a third season. But it has.

Episodes 1 and 2 were shown consecutively with no break bringing us the viewers into this more modern world of Twin Peaks.  If you’ve never seen an episode of Twin Peaks before and were hoping that this ‘return’ may actually be a ‘soft reboot’, expecting to be treated to perhaps a catch »
