Movies You May Have Missed: ‘Robotropolis’

  • Nerdly
Welcome to the latest installment in our regular Movies You May Have Missed series here on Nerdly, in which I highlight some of, what I think, are the best movies that have flown under the radar of many or have been “forgotten” in the intervening years since its release. This time round its the action sci-fi Robotropolis.

Stars: Zoe Naylor, Graham Sibley, Edward Foy, Lani John Tupu, Jourdan Lee | Written and Directed by Christopher Hatton

Official Synopsis:

A group of reporters are covering the unveiling of a new facility that is completely maintained by robot prototypes. When one of the robots goes haywire, the reporters find themselves not just reporting on the malfunction, but fighting for their lives.

My Thoughts:

Aussie actress Zoe Naylor, who you may remember from creature-feature The Reef, takes the lead in the second full length feature from writer-turned-director Christopher Hatton, and like his previously film

Wendi McLendon-Covey Says People With the Tidiest Lives ‘Are All a Bunch of Freaks’ (Video)
Imaginary Order” is a film about a woman whose seemingly tidy suburban life begins to unravel as she becomes enmeshed with a neighboring family.

The film stars Wendi McLendon-Covey as Cathy, a mother and wife who has given up her career to be the perfect stay-at-home mom, but as her daughter begins to push her away and her husband seems to no longer connect with her, she becomes enthralled and involved with the messy lives of a neighboring family, causing the order in her life to collapse.

“I thought, ‘this is going to be so much fun to play, I hope I can do it justice,'” McLendon-Covey said during a visit to TheWrap Studios during the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. “Something that struck me is, I see a lot of people unraveling like this and they create imaginary order around themselves to give the facade of ‘Look, everything’s great.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Imaginary Order’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Imaginary Order’
Plenty of films great and small have gone spelunking in the quiet desperation of middle-class suburban motherhood, but few have plumbed the milieu with more consistently uncomfortable results than writer-director Debra Eisenstadt’s “Imaginary Order.” Abrasive and often bleakly funny, the film is anchored by an unrestrained lead performance from Wendi McLendon-Covey as a Type A PTA mom who engineers her own absurd downfall, one well-intentioned decision at a time. Admirably acted and powered by a loopy internal rhythm, the film nonetheless wears out its welcome long before it’s done inflicting indignities on its heroine, arriving at its main point early and then repeating it again and again.

Cathy (McLendon-Covey) is a stay-at-home mom whose loneliness and sublimated regret at giving up her career are obvious from virtually the first frame. After quick-cut montages of her arduous morning ablutions set to Chopin sonatas, we watch Cathy as she helicopter-parents

The twisted world of Dark/Web is slowly approaching. If you’ve ever needed a reason to fear the world the internet, this upcoming series is sure to give you one. With its healthy combination of both serialized and anthological storytelling, Dark/Web seems poised to scratch an itch that a lot of consumers are having.

If you’re unfamiliar with the digital series, here’s the official synopsis:

"When Ethan (Elerding), Sam (McKissack) and James (Nardelli) find themselves the target of cryptic emails from someone posing as their childhood friend Molly (Gonzales), they assume she’s been the victim of an all-too-common hack. After they reach out to alert her, however, they discover that Molly’s been missing for months and no one has any idea what happened to her.As the emails keep coming, each containing a tale written by Molly, her friends realize that this may be more than just a sick joke. Someone has hidden information in the stories, details pulled from real life that point them to people and places from Molly’s past; clues that may lead them to their missing friend."

In addition to the killer premise, each episode consists of a standalone anthology segment woven into its narrative. Today, we have some news involving one of those segements: “Rideshare.”

Thanks to the producers of Dark/Web, we now have the official banner for “Rideshare.” The banner was created by Tim Nardelli, and it gives us just a taste of what we can expect.

Exclusive: Dark/Web - Training Day’s Julie Benz Joins The Digital Horror Series

The internet may be a useful everyday tool that we take for granted, but at its core, it has the power to be devastating and deadly. In the darkest reaches of the web are the most horrifying of possibilities, and even if you’ve never been a victim yourself, chances are you’ve at least heard some terrifying stories involving the deep web.

The upcoming Lrm-exclusive digital series, Dark/Web, will be tackling some of those possibilities. The single story will be told over the course of the eight-part series, but embedded into each of the episodes are bite-sized “segments” that act as mini-anthologies within the show.

It’s been a good while since we’ve had an update from Dark/Web, but when it rains it pours!

Casting: Marvel's Ghost Rider Will Ride Onto Lrm's Exclusive Dark/Web Series!

  • LRM Online
Things just got more real with Dark/Web. The Lrm Exclusive digital series just locked down Ghost Rider himself, Gabriel Luna, to partake in “Zero." Luna definitely made his presence felt on the most reason season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and was also the star of El Rey's Matador. His Dark/Web episode, "Zero," is one of the anthology portions of the show.

For those confused by what we mean by “anthology portion,” it’s probably best to recap the unique format that Dark/Web utilizes.

Dark/Web's structure combines the classic, standalone stories traditionally found in an anthology series with an overarching, season-long mystery. Each episode consists of two parts:

A portion of the serialized tale that continues week after week. A stand-alone horror/sci-fi short, presented in the form of stories that Molly left behind; each written and directed by a different filmmaker.

Robotropolis: DVD review

Director: Christopher Hatton. Review: Adam Wing. While a group of reporters are covering the unveiling of a high-tech industrial facility run by robots, one of the machines short circuits and goes haywire. The TV crew are forced to fight for their lives, battling an army of Metal Mickey’s that are threatening to wipe out the whole of mankind. Christopher Hatton takes charge on this one, with Zoe Naylor (The Reef), Graham Sibley (Days Of Our Lives) and Edward Foy (Standard Action) doing their best to keep up with the ropey dialogue, dubious special effects and terrifying screenplay. Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A team of TV news reporters are covering the story of a small town test facility where humans and robots live together in perfect harmony. A world in which man and machine co-exist, working together to build a better future. Whilst reporting on a

2008 Sundance Short Programs: 83 films make the cut

  • It’s no coincidence that the Sundance Festival Short Film Program had to sift through a lot more short films this year – video filmmakers are popping out from everywhere and filling the web with viral video content. A whopping 5,107 submissions were submitted and a total of 83 were programmed for the upcoming edition of the 08 fest. While more doesn’t necessarily mean better, the stuff I’ve seen at the last two editions easily demonstrates that there is some great talent to explore and in the case of Apple's iTunes Movie Store, Xbox Live and the Netflix – talent to exploit. The trio of companies will promote the films throughout the year, but for those not going to the fest you can check for daily uploads at www.sundance.org/festival Among the already popular submissions are a pair of new works from Ken WardropKen Wardrop
