‘Anon’ Review

Stars: Clive Owen, Amanda Seyfried, Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O’Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, Sebastian Pigott, Rachel Roberts, Ethan Tavares, Marco Grazzini, Conrad Coates | Written and Directed by Andrew Niccol

Writer-director Andrew Niccol has made a career out of depicting tech-enhanced dystopias, whether it’s his 1997 debut Gattaca (genetic engineering), his script for The Truman Show (reality TV taken to extremes) or 2002′s S1m0ne, which now seems weirdly prescient in its anxiety over digitally augmented reality. His latest film, sci-fi murder mystery Anon, finds Niccol on familiar ground when it comes to tech-based paranoia, but the plot falls short in comparison to the imaginative world building.

Set in an all-too-believable future, the film stars Clive Owen as world-weary detective Sal Frieland, whose job has been rendered ridiculously easy because all crimes are almost instantly solvable, thanks to an implant called the eye that uploads every citizen

One More Time: Netflix's Us Trailer for Augmented Reality Film 'Anon'

"Who can hack a human being?" One more trailer for the indie sci-fi film Anon, written and directed by sci-fi storyteller Andrew Niccol. We posted another trailer earlier this year, and a new international trailer this week already. This new Us trailer from Netflix presents the story entirely differently - about hackers and hacking our augmented reality, and how one of them is getting away with murders by erasing memories. Clive Owen plays a cop investigating a series of unsolved murders, who meets a mysterious hacker woman known as "The Girl" - Amanda Seyfried. This also stars Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian Pigott. This actually looks good, I'm planning to watch once it's available - starting in early May on Netflix. Here's the official Us trailer (+ new Us poster) for Andrew Niccol's Anon, direct from Netflix's YouTube: You can still watch the

New International Trailer for Andrew Niccol's 'Anon' with Clive Owen

"We can't control what we can't see." Another new international trailer has debuted for the indie sci-fi film Anon, written and directed by sci-fi storyteller Andrew Niccol. We posted another trailer earlier this year, and it still looks very intriguing. The film is about a near-future where there is no privacy or anonymity, where even private memories are recorded in an effort to cut down on crime. Clive Owen plays a cop investigating a series of unsolved murders, who meets a hacker woman known as "The Girl", played by Amanda Seyfried. She has no identity, no history and no record. Also starring Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian Pigott. I'm usually interested in whatever Niccol makes, especially if it's full-on sci-fi, and I'm fascinated by this. That digitized filmmaking style with augmented reality Pov is crazy cool. Check this out. Here's a second international

Second Trailer for HBO's 'Fahrenheit 451' Movie with Michael B. Jordan

"We have an important task for you..." HBO has launched a full-length official trailer for Ramin Bahrani's Fahrenheit 451, a new feature film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's seminal work about a dystopian book-burning future America (which was made into a film in 1966). Oh my does this look good, and frighteningly accurate in relation to what's currently happening in America. This version stars Michael B. Jordan as Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as a law enforcer. The full cast includes Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella, Keir Dullea, Chris Gleason, Martin Donovan, Lilly Singh, Grace Lynn Kung, Joe Pingue, and Sean Jones. I am so, so in for this and can't wait to watch the entire film. Trust in Bahrani! He's a great filmmaker, and I have a good feeling he's made one of his strongest yet with this film. Here's the full-length trailer for Ramin Bahrani's Fahrenheit 451,

Anon Trailer: Andrew Niccol Creates a World Without Privacy in Latest Thriller

The first trailer for Andrew Niccol's tech thriller Anon has dropped and, as always with Niccol, he's got me intrigued. While his films (Gattaca, Lord of War) don't always turn out to be winners, he continues to explore intriguing sci-fi ideas (ahem, In Time). Anon is set in a Soviet-style near-future where the government is trying to fight crime by eliminating privacy, thus creating total surveillance and de facto self-censorship. A police officer named Sal Frieland (Clive Owen) is doing his best to fight crime in his city but things take a huge turn when he meets a hacker known as "The Girl" (Amanda Seyfried). Anon was also written by Niccol and co-stars Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian...

First Full Trailer for Andrew Niccol's Sci-Fi Technology Thriller 'Anon'

"Anonymity is the enemy." A trailer has launched from Greece for the new sci-fi film Anon, the latest from one of my favorite sci-fi filmmakers - Andrew Niccol, who last made The Host and Good Kill. The film is about a near-future where there is no privacy or anonymity, where even private memories are recorded in an effort to cut down on crime. Clive Owen plays a cop investigating a series of unsolved murders, who meets a hacker woman known as "The Girl", played by Amanda Seyfried. She has no identity, no history and no record. What he learns from her changes everything. Also starring Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian Pigott. Why does Seyfried look so like anyone but herself? This seems to be a slick sci-fi neo-noir. I'm always curious about Niccol's films, will be watching it. Here's the first international trailer for Andrew Niccol's Anon,

Teaser Trailer for HBO's 'Fahrenheit 451' Movie with Michael B. Jordan

"A little knowledge is a dangerous thing." This is a must watch! HBO has unveiled the first teaser trailer for their new adaptation of the novel Fahrenheit 451, directed by filmmaker Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo, At Any Price, 99 Homes). Adapted directly from Ray Bradbury's seminal work about a dystopian book-burning future America (which was made into a film in 1966), this version stars Michael B. Jordan as Guy Montag, a young fireman who struggles with his role as a law enforcer. The full cast also includes Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella, Keir Dullea, Chris Gleason, Martin Donovan, Lilly Singh, Grace Lynn Kung, Joe Pingue, and Sean Jones. This looks so damn good, way better than I was expecting it to look. I'm fully ready for this, and I feel like Bahrani might've been the perfect director for it after all. Fire this up. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Ramin Bahrani's Fahrenheit 451,

‘Room’ Review

Stars: Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Sean Bridgers, Wendy Crewson, Sandy McMaster, Matt Gordon, Amanda Brugel, Joe Pingue, Joan Allen, William H. Macy | Written by Emma Donoghue | Directed by Lenny Abrahamson

A room is an enclosed space, no matter how many windows it has. It is a confinement that restricts our world while we are in it. In Room, there are many rooms that restrict the world of Ma (Brie Larson) and Jack (Jacob Tremblay) and some they may not escape…

In Room we meet Jack on his fifth birthday, living in his little world that he was born into. Trapped within the 10-by-10-foot space they are held there by Old Nick (Sean Bridgers). When Ma realises that they have to escape the room, Jack fights it, not believing that the outside world exists. When they finally escape though, they find their biggest battle is surviving a life outside the walls of Room.

Pattinson and (Hilarious) Moore Get Intimate in Red Band HD Trailer for Maps to the Stars - Plus Four Film Clips

Maps to the Stars’ trailer and clips: Julianne Moore goes ballistic after losing a role, Robert Pattinson learns that Mia Wasikowska’s parents are brother and sister (photo: Robert Pattinson in ‘Maps to the Stars’) The Hollywood satire Maps to the Stars, the second David Cronenberg-Robert Pattinson collaboration to be screened in competition for the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival — following Cosmopolis two years ago — is one of the most anticipated films at the festival for obvious reasons: although an international box office disappointment, the brainy, stream-of-consciousness Cosmopolis earned a number of enthusiastic reviews and was the runner-up (trailing only Leos Carax’s fellow white limo movie Holy Motors) on the list of Best Films of 2012 compiled by the prestigious Cahiers du Cinéma.

Second Opinion – Pompeii (2014)

Pompeii, 2014.

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

Starring Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Jared Harris, Joe Pingue, Currie Graham, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

Synopsis:

A race against time and the elements as a gladiator attempts to save his true love from certain death as a volcano erupts, threatening to engulf the city beneath it.

And here it is, ladies and gentlemen, a considered and factually accurate reconstruction of the events surrounding the fateful eruption of a bloody big hill in Italy. Wait, hang on a minute…who is directing this again? Paul W.S. Anderson, you say? Hmm, on second thoughts, can I have my money back..?

Yes indeed, the man responsible for such cinematic masterpieces as Alien Vs Predator and all of the Resident Evil movies (the games had more atmosphere) is here to completely muck about with history for the sake of entertainment. Event Horizon is not a

Movie Review – Pompeii (2014)

Pompeii, 2014.

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

Starring Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Jared Harris, Joe Pingue, Currie Graham, Carrie-Anne Moss and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

Synopsis:

When a lowly gladiator is sent to Pompeii to fight in the arena, a series of tales play out amidst the cataclysmic eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

With the evolution of effects in movies, including the much-covered integration of CGI, it seems like there’s much less room for what is known as the classic good bad movie. What would Roger Corman do with such realistic effects? How does good storytelling, as well as directorial technique, get a chance to flourish and evolve with a bolder, bigger brother taking most of the screen time? This is an exaggerated question, of course. Many movies mix them both well and it seems to be a debate born from convenience when the real question should be placed at the

Pompeii Movie Review
Title: Pompeii Directed By: Paul W.S. Anderson Starring: Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Sasha Roiz, Jessica Lucas, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jared Harris, Joe Pingue If you were hoping “Pompeii” would ditch the lava in exchange for nonsensical political and romantic melodrama, Paul W.S. Anderson’s latest is for you – and probably only you. “Pompeii” opens with a baby Jon Snow – er, Milo. He thinks he’s all safe and sound, but upon emerging from his hut, finds his town and his parents being massacred at the hands of the Romans lead by Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland). Little Milo manages to escape, but ultimately is thrown into slavery and raised as a [ Read More ]

‘Pompeii’ Review

In Pompeii, young Milo (Kit Harington) is left for dead after Roman soldiers murder his family along with the rest of his people – courageous horsemen who fought against Rome’s oppression. Before long, the orphaned child is found by slave traders who, years later, force Milo to fight for the entertainment of others. Discovered by Pompeii slave owner, and games organizer, Graecus (Joe Pingue), Milo (now known as “The Celt”) is pulled from the remote countryside and brought to the bustling city under Mount Vesuvius – where he enjoys a chance encounter with a beautiful merchant’s daughter, Cassia (Emily Browning).

The horseman also strikes up a fast friendship with soon-to-be freed gladiator, Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and the two warriors openly threaten visiting Roman dignitary Senator Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland), the man responsible for killing Milo’s ...

Latest 'Pompeii' poster with Kit Harington, Kiefer Sutherland and Emily Browning

Yes, this one again includes "A Hero Will Rise" as Part of it's tagline, which Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" did. Score for originality, right? This is the fifth poster for the Paul W.S. Anderson film starring Kit Harington, Kiefer Sutherland, Emily Brownin, Jessica Lucas, Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pingue. Frankly, I'm not invested much in the film as it comes from the very same helmer who spewed out those horrible "Resident Evil" films, and "The Three Musketeers" which would likely make Alexandre Dumas roll over in his grave. "Pompeii" hits theaters on February 21st, 2014 and scripted by Lee Scott Batchler, Janet Scott Batchler and Michael Robert Johnson. Set in 79 A.D., the story tells the epic story of Milo (Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Browning), the beautiful daughter
