Exclusive: Jason Patric Talks The Prince and More

Posted by bsimon On August - 24 - 2014 0 Comment
Jason Patric The Prince

He can be self-destructive, darkly debonair or a lot more dangerous, but Jason Patric is best known for bringing a smoldering intensity to his roles, be it in it something like “The Lost Boys,” “Geronimo: An American Legend,” ”Rush,” “Sleepers” or “Narc,” Joe Carnahan’s 2002 film that reminded people of his talent after a self-imposed four-year hiatus. In his latest movie, director Brian A. Miller’s crime thriller “The Prince,” Patric stars alongside Bruce Willis, John Cusack, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Jessica Lowndes and South Korean pop star-turned-actor Rain, playing a retired crime boss and single father forced to team up with his best friend and go to dark places when his  [ Read More ]

Moebius Movie Review

Posted by bsimon On August - 24 - 2014 0 Comment

Title: Moebius Director: Kim Ki-Duk Starring: Cho Jae-hyun, Seo Young-ju, Lee Eun-woo Castration drama takes a queasy, headlong dive into the literal in South Korean director Kim Ki-Duk’s ”Moebius,” easily the most penis-slicingest film of this year, last year and probably several years to come. A formalist slice of perversity that never coheres into anything more meaningful than a willful piece of cinematic provocation, this controversial, largely wordless psychological thriller is undone by too-thin characterizations and dodgy technique. The characters in ”Moebius” don’t really have names, and are clearly meant to take on a representational quality. A man known simply in the credits as Father (Cho Jae-hyun) has been cheating on Mother (Lee Eun-woo),  [ Read More ]

Interview: Alfred Molina Talks Love Is Strange

A person’s ability to finally have the chance to publicly and legally state their love for the person who’s closest to them, particularly after spending years of fighting civil rights violations and social injustices, can be the most gratifying moment a person ever experiences. But when that long deserved union sets in motion a reversal of fortune that not only affects the couple’s relationship, but also those who are closest to them, what was meant to be one of the happiest moments of their lives can turn into a harrowing event. But British actor Alfred Molina, who contends with this emotional turmoil in his new drama, ‘Love Is Strange,’ which  [ Read More ]

Interview: Ira Sachs Talks Love Is Strange

Striving to find a way to protect a strong emotional bond with someone you truly love can be a stressful situation for everyone involved in the situation. But when you find someone you truly care about, doing whatever it takes to maintain that bond, even if it goes against what’s morally acceptable, often becomes a top priority. That’s certainly the case in director Ira Sach’s new independent drama, “Love Is Strange,” which he co-scribed with his writing partner, Mauricio Zacharias. The independent drama, which is now playing in select theaters, emphasizes that no matter what struggles people are faced with in their lives, having a strong connection and love for  [ Read More ]

New York Film Festival 2014: Stray Dog Gets A New Trailer

Posted by Rudie Obias On August - 23 - 2014 0 Comment

Debra Granik could have gone in any number of directions after the success of Winter’s Bone. She decided to focus on a documentary portrait of Ron “Stray Dog” Hall (who played Thump Milton in the 2010 film), an aging biker and RV park manager from southern Missouri. When we are introduced to Hall and his friends, they appear to be the very image of “middle America” held by New Yorkers: hard-drinking (moonshine, no less), gun-toting, tattooed motorcycle freaks. Slowly, gradually, another image comes into view, of a man who has been permanently altered by his tours of duty in Vietnam, who has come to terms with himself and acquired a  [ Read More ]

Ed2

When seminal documentarian Ed Pincus, considered the father of first person non-fiction film, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film, much to the chagrin of Jane, Ed’s wife of 50 years. Told from two filmmakers’ points of view, ONE CUT, ONE LIFE challenges the form of first person documentary. Ed and Lucia’s unique approach to filming offers a vulnerability and intimacy rarely seen in non- fiction, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public. The film is an intense, raw, and sometimes humorous exploration of the human condition which invites the viewer to contemplate for  [ Read More ]

"Oz the Great and Powerful" European Premiere - Arrivals

Like ShockYa wrote a few days ago, there are two “Jungle Book” film adaptations afoot. There’s one by Disney under the direction of Jon Favreau, and there’s another under the direction of Andy Serkis (his directorial debut, in fact).

Interview: Shane Johnson Talks The Possession of Michael King

Interview Shane Johnson Talks The Possession of Michael King

Passionately documenting your investigation into a topic you have already hold preconceived doubt and questions about can initially prove to be redundant, as you’re not willing to explore, much less accept, new information and insights into the subject. But when thrillingly unexpected new evidence about the subject is presented, all those predetermined thoughts can instantly disappear. Actor Shane Johnson, who portrayed the title character in first-time feature film writer-director David Jung’s horror movie, ‘The Possession of Michael King,’ proved the troubled protagonist’s radical change of heart throughout the course of the independent found footage project. ‘The Possession of Michael King,’ which is now playing in select theaters and will be  [ Read More ]

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Don Jon

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been working on the “Sandman” film adaptation for a while. Fans of his are certain he can do a great job, but the big question is probably when the film is actually going to be made. Gordon-Levitt talks about the progress of the film with Moviefone during an interview for “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For,” and the short of it is that bringing a faithful “Sandman” adaptation to film is harder than one might think, especially those not initiated into the world of “Sandman.” “It’s a lot of the same people who worked on the Nolan ‘Batman’ movies. It’s really exciting. There’s not a script  [ Read More ]

Ken Jeong in The Hangover Part III

Is there anyone out there who plays the celebrity death pool game? Hopefully you don’t–that’s a rough way to make a buck. But judging aside, the celebrity death pool is an age-old game that’s now going to become a funny movie. Well, that’s the intent–it’s the brain child of Ken Jeong. Jeong’s latest project, currently called “Untiled Celebrity Death Pool,” will star Jeong as a rotten nightclub owner who wants to make some quick cash to pay back a loan shark. Instead of thinking of other ways to make money, Jeong’s character turns to the obviously natural way to make a buck–bet big on Davd Hasselhoff as the next celeb  [ Read More ]

Evangeline Lilly

“Ant-Man” is well underway! It would appear that we’re going to get regular updates from social media now that the film is in production. First, we got the tweet from director Peyton Reed about the start of production. Now, we have Evangeline Lilly showing off her new haircut (or new wig) on Instagram. Check it out below. If you’re a big Marvel fan, you’d know why this haircut is important. Lilly is playing a character named Hope van Dyne, but currently, it’s not clear if she’s going to really be the Wasp. Although research shows that this character is closely related to The Wasp; the original Wasp was named Janet  [ Read More ]

Interview Jason Ritter, Jane Levy and Maggie Grace Talk About Alex

People often don’t truly and intimately know even those they consider to be their closest friends until they make an unexpected tragic decision that painfully changes their outlook on life and their relationships. While they should have foreseen the heartbreaking choice the person made, particularly since their actions played a part in their judgment, the distressing result can often times be the only way people can reconnect and improve their bonds. This is certainly the case in the independent drama, ‘About Alex,’ which marks the feature film writing and directorial debuts of filmmaker Jesse Zwick. ‘About Alex’ follows the title character (Jason Ritter), a depressed and emotionally lost 20-something who  [ Read More ]
