Movie Review – Midnighters (2018)

Midnighters. 2018.

Directed by Julius Ramsay.

Starring Alex Essoe, Perla Haney-Jardine, Dylan McTee, and Ward Horton.

Synopsis:

Midnight, New Year’s Eve: when all the hopes of new beginnings come to life – except for Lindsey and Jeff Pittman, whose strained marriage faces the ultimate test after they cover up a terrible crime and find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian web of deceit and madness.

Julius Ramsay’s Midnighters evokes a self-proclaimed “Hitchcockian” blend of American Psycho (suburban Patrick Bateman) and Body (the Larry Fessenden one). Reliant on multiple twists that elongate a young couple’s catastrophic 24-ish hours of torture, but undeserving of one-too-many jarring pivots. It’s not enough that characters are distressed by an accidental death. Players grind their own secretive mistrust into a story that – itself – is (over)loaded with mischief around every turn. Predictably unpredictable, and shot with a static evenness that begs for more livened madness.

Synopsis:

Midnight, New Year’s Eve: when all the hopes of new beginnings come to life – except for Lindsey and Jeff Pittman, whose strained marriage faces the ultimate test after they cover up a terrible crime and find themselves entangled in a Hitchcockian web of deceit and madness.

Opening up with relationship problems put out in the open and some irresponsible New Year’s Eve drunk driving leading to accidental manslaughter doesn’t exactly create endearing protagonists. Why do I want to see these people dispose of the body, eradicate all the evidence, and get away clean with murder? Well, Midnighters (directed by former The Walking Dead editor Julius Ramsay and written by his political speechwriter brother Alston Ramsay) is chock full of surprises up its sleeve, especially in that it’s a thriller of

Official Trailer for New Year's Night Murder Thriller Film 'Midnighters'

"Is there anything you've done that would make someone come after you?"

Laff 2017 Review Round-Up: Replace, Midnighters, Never Here, and Desolation

Back in June, the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival took over Southern California, hosting screenings at numerous locations and featuring numerous genre films that horror and sci-fi fans should definitely keep on their radars in the coming months. Here are my thoughts on three of the movies that I had the opportunity to watch at the festival:

Replace: As far genre feature film debuts go, co-writer/director Norbert Keil has a lot to be proud of with Replace, a stunning and beautifully executed cinematic mystery that’s part body horror/part psychological thriller. Something of a hallucinatory fever dream at times, Keil has crafted an intriguing and chilling portrait of just how far some folks are willing to go in the name of vanity, and the whole affair is anchored by a trio of powerhouse performances by Rebecca Forsythe, Barbara Crampton, and Lucie Aron.

In Replace, we’re introduced to

Steve Jobs Blu-ray review

Directed by: Danny Boyle

Screenplay by: Aaron Sorkin based on the book by Walter Isaacson

Starring: Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jeff Daniels

While it’s easy to praise something you love or critically break apart anything that underwhelms your own opinion, the truly great films become an art form to absolutely admire. Steve Jobs is an experience like no other. Audiences and critics loved The Revenant, among other things, for its extensive landscapes and enduring commitment but Steve Jobs has an intensity of intelligence alongside exceptional ingenuity, much like the man himself.

The film is split into three ‘launches’; the Macintosh in 1984, the NeXT box in 1988 and the iMac G3 in 1998. It’s entwined with a look at Jobs (played by Michael Fassbender) relationships with five main character arcs that includes his daughter Lisa (portrayed by Makenzie Moss, Ripley Sobo, Perla Haney-Jardine at different ages) and

Review: Steve Jobs

  • Comicmix
We think we know Steve Jobs, the maestro behind Apple but unless you read one of his biographies or watch Jobs or Steve Jobs, you only have impressions. General audiences will recognize the man in the black turtleneck and know he gave us the iPod, iPhone, Macintosh, etc. but most will mistakenly credit him for being the builder of these gadgets.

Read Walter Isaacson’s wonderful biography or study Jobs through the myriad video interviews or articles available online and you come to understand he was a visionary who pushed, prodded, cajoled, wheedled, and demanded his workers to meet his exacting standards.

Capturing that volatile and complex man on film would be a challenge for any production crew but director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin were the kind you wanted for something challenging. Sorkin took Isaacson’s bio as a starting point but then read and read more material.

After the opening act with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and a follow-up with star Jeff Daniels, the third act of my Shakespearean conversation on Steve Jobs is with director Danny Boyle on Alan Turing, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Benedict Cumberbatch, a Katharine Hepburn line, costume designer Suttirat Anne Larlarb (Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours, Trance) dressing Kate Winslet influenced by Phil Oakey's The Human League girls, Michael Fassbender becoming Jobs, Walter Isaacson's biography and the revenge of the calla lilies. At the New York Film Festival Centerpiece Gala event, Seth Rogen, Michael Stuhlbarg, Perla Haney-Jardine, Fassbender, Winslet, Daniels and Sorkin were brought up on stage at Alice Tully Hall where the director announced that we were seeing the "world premiere of the finished version" of his movie.

Screenwriter of David Fincher's The Social Network, Bennett Miller's Moneyball and Mike Nichols' Charlie Wilson's War, Aaron Sorkin, clued me in on his adaptation of Walter Isaacson's biography, Steve Jobs, before sitting down for brunch at The Vault of the St. Regis. Alain Resnais' Last Year In Marienbad, an Iris Apfel quote in Albert Maysles' portrait Iris, an eye tattoo, loving corridors, to be or not be a ghost, Shakespeare, Hegel, the Three Little Pigs and the Holy Trinity, come into play in our conversation.
