Movie Review: #Nerve The film has boundless potential with the future-is-now vibe and intriguing story

Read our review to see whether the film lives up to the fast-paced trailer.
Review by Erika Garcia-Santos Venus "Vee" Delmonico, a studious and cautious graduating high school senior decides to take a ride on the wild side by playing a hot new online game called Nerve. During her first round in the game, she finds herself quickly partnered with a stranger and fellow Nerve player, Ian. The two teens team together to complete the increasingly dangerous and intense dares while managing to rack up tons of cash. Soon, the tasks take a turn for the worst as the “Watchers” begin to orchestrate a potentially life altering final round for the two “Players.”
Nerve is a fast paced wild ride that has the viewer clinging to the edge of their seat from nearly the beginning. There is no doubt in my mind that this movie will do well amongst the teens that make their way into the air conditioned theaters to get out of the heat while they kill time this summer. The soundtrack is good and has many different hip hop and EDM stylized music that is “in” this year. The film is stacked with hot actors from Netflix’s Original - Orange is the New Black and the two main characters Emma Roberts and Dave Franco have obvious on screen chemistry. There is a lot that this movie has going for it, but with Nerve you certainly have to take the good with the bad. The acting is subpar at best to say the least. I love Juliette Lewis, but her portrayal of a completely clueless mother is outright laughable. For the entire film she’s wandering around checking her phone as she receives bank updates and ends up calling her daughter’s best friend to get information, which is just as ridiculous as it sounds. The catty behavior between Vee and her other best friend Sydney (played by Emily Meade) is extremely over acted on both sides. In addition to the poor acting, the painfully predictable plot line is almost too much to handle.
The story’s idea is interesting by how the screenwriter, Jessica Sharzer, adapted a young adult novel written by Jeanne Ryan for this summer teen flick. Did you know this was a novel? Neither did I. What is most interesting about the semi-original story-line is how the film addresses the reality of how truly ingrained technology is in our everyday lives to the point that we as a society really do not know nor understand how much personal information is out there on the internet for anyone to find and use against us. The film has boundless potential with the future-is-now vibe and intriguing story, which is well paced but after 2/3 of the way through it loses steam and falls off kilter. The final act of the movie veers far off course and the viewers are standing on the side wondering how we even got to this point in the first place. The subtle undertone of the internet actually being dangerous and anonymity isn’t always the best for society gets pushed the forefront and comes across rather preachy. Then the comically unrealistic hacking to save mankind scene makes anyone that knows even the slightest bit of computer coding shake their head because it’s boringly cliché.
Nerve will certainly make its money back and maybe even gross a little in the box office as parent’s bring their little ones to Finding Dory and the older siblings can escape their parental clutches to hang out with friends and text while in this movie. I certainly hope that the teenagers this film is geared towards will think twice about their desire to start up a crowd funding campaign to build Nerve in real life, because of the realistic dangers it brings. If you are over the age of, let’s say 20 years old, skip this film and rent it on Redbox this fall when all the kiddies are back in school and you can watch it in the comfort of your own home without their bright screened phones lighting up the room. Nerve is rated PG-13 for thematic material involving dangerous and risky behavior, some sexual content, language, drug content, drinking and nudity-all involving teens and has a 96-minute runtime.

SPLIT – In Theaters January 20, 2017

Writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan returns to the captivating grip of The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs with Split, an original thriller that delves into the mysterious recesses of one man’s fractured, gifted mind. Following last year’s breakout hit The Visit, Shyamalan reunites with producer Jason Blum (The Purge and Insidious series, The Gift) for the film.

While the mental divisions of those with dissociative identity disorder have long fascinated and eluded science, it is believed that some can also manifest unique physical attributes for each personality, a cognitive and physiological prism within a single being.

Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy, The Witch), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him—as well as everyone around him—as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.

For Split, Shyamalan and Blum reassemble their core team from The Visit, the No. 1 - grossing horror film of 2015. Their fellow collaborators include producer Marc Bienstock and executive producers Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider.

STEVE AOKI Doc 'I'll Sleep When I'm Dead' Out August 19 On @Netflix

In the documentary I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, viewers are thrust into the world of STEVE AOKI, the Grammy-nominated electronic dance music superstar who stands as one of pop music's most tireless multi-hyphenates: founder of the taste-making record label Dim Mak and a chart-topping producer-remixer-DJ with his finger pressed firmly to the pulse of cutting-edge youth culture. It was recently announced the film will be released exclusively on Netflix, the world's leading internet TV network, on August 19.



The film, at times both heart pumping and heart breaking, premiered to a sold-out audience at the Tribeca Film Festival this past spring. AOKI's story will now see a global release into homes in over 190 countries world-wide, joining such highly regarded Netflix original titles as House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, What Happened, Miss Simone? and Making A Murderer.

Says STEVE AOKI, "I'm beyond proud, humbled and excited that I'll Sleep When I'm Dead will be released as a Netflix documentary. As a longtime Netflix binger, it's a dream come true to have my documentary featured alongside such other prestigious original content. Being a truly global platform, Netflix will allow the film to reach my fans all over the world on every imaginable screen."

A vulnerable and often bittersweet film, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead was shot over the course of three years, during the making of his Neon Future double album (Dim Mak/Ultra Music, 2014/15). It follows his journey to play the biggest show of his career and centers around the complex yet loving relationship with his father, the Benihana restaurant tycoon, daredevil athlete and former Olympian Rocky Aoki.

From the main stage of Tomorrowland in Belgium to intimate gatherings at his family home in Japan, it's an inside look at one of music's most outstanding characters. The story is complimented by interviews with STEVE's mother (another major influence in his life), sister/supermodel Devon Aoki, along with musicians and contemporaries Diplo, Tiesto, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Travis Barker, Pete Tong and will.i.am, among others.

The film comes from the same team behind the critically acclaimed documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi. It is directed by Justin Krook and produced by David Gelb (Chef's Table, Jiro Dreams of Sushi), Matthew Weaver (Rock of Ages), Happy Walters (The Big Lebowski, The Fighter, Limitless), Matt Colon; Executive Producers Michael J. Mailis, Hajime Inoue and Joanna Shaw; and Co-Producer's Susan Wrubel, Nick Stern and Gaku Kaneko.

Alongside the release of I'll Sleep When I'm Dead and his new club EP 4OKI on July 29, STEVE AOKI will make several festival appearances in the U.S. which include plays at the VELD Festival in Toronto, Summer Set (Somerset, WI) and KAABOO (Del Mar, CA). He'll also headline Dim Mak's 20th Anniversary Stage at Electric Zoo: Wild Island in NYC over Labor Day weekend. In between, he'll travel to Europe for many continental festival dates and his residencies at Ushuaia in Ibiza and Hakkasan, Jewel and Wet Republic in Las Vegas. All his tour dates can be found below.

Upon its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival this past April, the film garnered strong press support:

"EDM heavy-hitter Steve Aoki gets the docu-profile treatment - how they didn't end up calling this Let Them Eat Cake is a mystery to us - as filmmaker Justin Krook follows the DJ around on tour and gets him to open up about his workaholic lifestyle. (Spoiler alert: It involves his father, former wrestler and founder of the Benihana franchise, Rocky Aoki.) Expect personal confessionals, raucous parties, some choice performance clips and yes, frosting-covered baked goods.
Which will probably be flung. "
- David Fear, Rolling Stone
"15 Films We Can't Wait To See At Tribeca Film Festival" (6/12/16)

"Over the past decade, Steve Aoki has become one of the most in-demand entertainers in the world -- he's equally renowned as a DJ, owner of Dim Mak Records and for his own unique brand of rave-ready EDM hits. His exploits have brought him fame and untold riches, if not always respect and closure. Those themes are largely explored in I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, a biographical documentary which tracks Aoki's unlikely rise, and also shows why in some ways it's been a bittersweet journey."
- Paul Cantor, Billboard (4/19/16)

"For years, Steve Aoki has been known as one of the EDM world's most hardworking and controversial figures. From his crazy stage antics to his admission of not being a DJ, Aoki knows how to get the public's attention. Aoki's latest project however, focuses less on his position as a DJ and more on his family history and why he's so diligent about working. As you can gather from the title, I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, it's not necessarily an uplifting film, but an important one. The documentary-shot during the making of his record Neon Future-takes a look at Aoki's complicated relationship with his father, Benihana restaurant tycoon and former Olympian Rocky Aoki
and explores the drive that's been instilled in him."
- Ilana Kaplan, PAPER (4/14/16)

"...the film makes quick business of establishing Aoki-whose most famous depictions are literally one-dimensional-as a surprisingly multi-faceted subject. Steve spent his childhood as an outcast of sorts on the west coast, the son of the late, absentee restaurant magnate, Rocky Aoki, founder of Japanese restaurant chain-cum-fire-hazard Benihana. This is fairly common knowledge, but the film reveals that that Rocky was rarely around, and provided no financial aid to his son's musical endeavours-which began when Steve established Dim Mak Records in 1996 out of his tiny apartment, releasing early records by Bloc Party and post-hardcore thrashers Blood Brothers before becoming a foundational part of the EDM quasi-movement. Steve then parlayed that success into ascending the ranks of the electronic music world as a DJ. The film juxtaposes this younger wide-eyed version of Steve with the present day's-where he's one of the most financially successful electronic artists in the world, travelling extensively, playing upwards of 300 shows a year, and regularly headlining huge festivals like Tomorrowland..."
- Sean Egan, Thump (4/20/16)

New Queen Of Katwe TV Spot

Here is a brand to TV spot for “Queen of Katwe.” Directed by Mira Nair, the film starring David Oyelowo and Lupita Nyong’o will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 10. The vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda who becomes an international chess champion, “Queen of Katwe” opens in limited release on September 23, expanding September 30, 2016.



“Queen of Katwe” is based on the vibrant true story of a young girl from the streets of rural Uganda whose world rapidly changes when she is introduced to the game of chess, and, as a result of the support she receives from her family and community, is instilled with the confidence and determination she needs to pursue her dream of becoming an international chess champion. Directed by Mira Nair from a screenplay by William Wheeler, “Queen of Katwe” is produced by Lydia Dean Pilcher, p.g.a., and John Carls, p.g.a., with Will Weiske and Troy Buder serving as executive producers. The film stars Golden Globe® nominee David Oyelowo, Oscar® winner and Tony® nominee Lupita Nyong’o and newcomer Madina Nalwanga.

For 10-year-old Phiona Mutesi (Nalwanga) and her family, life in the impoverished slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle. Her mother, Harriet (Nyong’o), is fiercely determined to take care of her family and works tirelessly selling vegetables in the market to make sure her children are fed and have a roof over their heads. When Phiona meets Robert Katende (Oyelowo), a soccer player turned missionary who teaches local children chess, she is captivated. Chess requires a good deal of concentration, strategic thinking and risk taking, all skills which are applicable in everyday life, and Katende hopes to empower youth with the game. Phiona is impressed by the intelligence and wit the game requires and immediately shows potential. Recognizing Phiona’s natural aptitude for chess and the fighting spirit she’s inherited from her mother, Katende begins to mentor her, but Harriet is reluctant to provide any encouragement, not wanting to see her daughter disappointed. As Phiona begins to succeed in local chess competitions, Katende teaches her to read and write in order to pursue schooling. She quickly advances through the ranks in tournaments, but breaks away from her family to focus on her own life. Her mother eventually realizes that Phiona has a chance to excel and teams up with Katende to help her fulfill her extraordinary potential, escape a life of poverty and save her family. Disney’s “Queen of Katwe” will open in U.S. theaters on September 23, 2016.
