The Legacy Of Silent Film

When Louis and Auguste Lumiere first showed their short film The Arrival of a Train in 1895, they certainly had no inkling that, almost a hundred years later, it would be the film-within-a-film in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1992 adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Nor could Carl Theodor Dreyer have suspected that his 1928 feature The […]

Five Advantages of Casino Bonus Offers

Unlike brick-and-mortar gambling halls, online casino websites offer a plethora of incredible perks to their players. Besides being reachable anytime and anywhere, they provide innovative casino bonuses beyond simple free drinks during playtime.  The abundance of gambling websites and their promotional offers makes it nearly impossible for players to pick only one offer. Instead, they […]

How to make pie for white supremacists

Director

Tate Taylor

Cast

Emma Stone
Viola Davis
Octavia Spencer
Bryce Dallas Howard
Cicely Tyson
Sissy Spacek
Allison Janney

The Help is a lot like Crash, The Blind Side, and other presumably well-meaning but largely tone-deaf movies about race that don’t happen to star Sandra Bullock (as a longtime devotee of both Demolition Man and The Bus That Couldn’t Slow Down, I have to believe sweet Sandy’s heart is in the right place). However […]

Director

Neil Burger

Cast

Colin Farrell
Tye Sheridan
Lily Rose-Depp
Fionn Whitehead
Chante Adams
Wern Lee
Quintessa Swindell

“Voyagers” – No one can hear you conch in space. I hate Lord of the Flies. I hate the book, I hate the 1963 film adaptation, and I hate the 1990 film adaptation. If I had known Voyagers was Lord of the Flies in space, I might not have wanted to watch Voyagers. They got […]

Cast

Alexander Skarsgard
Millie Bobby Brown
Rebecca Hall
Brian Tyree Henry
Shun Oguri
Elza Gonzalez
Julian Dennison

“Godzilla vs. Kong” – It was everything I thought it could be. This movie is what I have been missing for the past year. Big, loud, dumb blockbusters that promise one thing. Prior to this, Wonder Woman 84 was supposed to be that movie, except not the dumb part. Of course, WW84 turned out to […]

“Do we loathe our masters behind a facade of loving, or do we love our masters behind a facade of loathing?”  Balram  It is fitting that the first words heard in The White Tiger are spoken by Jay-Z. On the soundtrack as the movie begins is “Beware of the Boys,” Jay’s collaboration with British Indian […]

Matt Hunter is tired. Once a proud Company Man, and one of the few on the payroll with full beard and bare chest, he’s more a Lion in Winter circa 1985, with nothing left to prove and no arms left to break. Leaving behind a world on the brink, he’s retired to Florida … the […]

Film Title

I, Frankenstein

Synopsis

We are bored

 

Director

Stuart Beattie

Cast

Aaron Eckhart
Yvonne Strahovski
Miranda Otto
Bill NIghy
Aden Young
Kevin Grevioux

The longer you watch I, Frankenstein, the harder it is to believe that it is an actual theatrical feature and not just a bad TV movie made for the Syfy channel. Despite big-name, reliably good actors like Aaron Eckhart, Bill Nighy, and Miranda Otto, and special effects that, at their best, at least look like […]

Murder, Torture & Religion

Murder and torture are as old as humanity. Ever since man first invented the club, he probably used it to kill another caveman. Murder in the name of religion probably wasn’t very far behind. Overzealous faith has been used as an excuse to torture and kill since the beginning of recorded history. What follows are […]

An early—perhaps, only—highlight in Resident Evil: Code Veronica features a palace sitting below a private residence atop a hill on a southern ocean island facility overrun by the bioengineered monstrosities it helped create. That gothic castle looms in the background, and as you, the player, forge an eventual path toward the perched building, the eerie […]
