Closed Circuit Review. Could Be One Of The Best Films Of The Year

Closed Circuit Review By: MattInRC
The British political thriller Closed Circuit satisfies our need for intelligent Summer fare.


Intelligent human dramas are not usually in Hollywood's Summer toolbox. Explosions, gun battles, and sequels usually dominate the menu, with only a few rising to the top (Star Trek: Into Darkness, The Great Gatsby). The same goes for suspenseful political thrillers that don't rely on slow-motion gunplay or explosions to sell the sizzle. Closed Circuit not only doesn't need to rely on these devices, it's an intelligent and well-acted film that offers a refreshing alternative and an all too-relevant message about the post-9/11 world we live in.


Set in London, the film opens with a terrorist explosion at a crowded marketplace, killing 120 people, all of whom are featured on a menagerie of CCTV cameras. Their murders coincide with an anonymous tip of the mastermind's location, leading to his arrest. As he awaits what will be a high-profil…

GETAWAY Review. The Film Is Pure Adrenaline Rush

GETAWAY Review By: RAMA
We were unable to make our screening for GETAWAY. But RAMA comes through with another great review. Make sure to LIKE his Facebook page and follow him on Twitter.


Those who know me well know that I’m a sucker for car chase movies. Not because I’m an expert on cars or driving, but it’s because I’m the complete opposite, and so the fantasy of driving recklessly, getting away clean, high speed in movies is about as addicting and irresistible as it gets and GETAWAY doesn’t disappoint me. If I were to describe this movie, I’d say it’s TAKEN meets PHONE BOOTH, because most of the time, you only hear the voice of the antagonist, giving strict instructions and must-obey commands, until he’s revealed at the end of the movie.

GETAWAY’s only low points are the writing and Selena Gomez.


GETAWAY” is the gritty, heart-pounding action thriller from Warner Bros. Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment starring Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke (“Training Day,” “The Purge,” “Si…

The Grandmaster Review. Film Doesn't Know What It Wants To Be

The Grandmaster Review By: MattInRC
The Grandmaster can't decide what it wants to be. And that makes me want to throw something.


Director Kar Wai Wong has had a grand film career, most of which has gone unnoticed by American audiences. There's In the Mood for Love and 2046 - films about unrequited but ultimately doomed love - and the quirky Chungking Express, which featured an expired can of pineapple slices as a major plot point. Highly-stylized and beautifully shot, these and others show a director who's not been afraid to push the boundaries of cinema. Unfortunately, his newest film The Grandmaster can't decide if it's a tender love story, a Kung-Fu epic, or a poignant tale of revenge in post-WWII China. That's too bad, because it looks so damn good trying.


As the film opens in 1936 China, Ip Man (Tony Leung) does more than merely practice martial arts, but is clearly better than any of the southern brawlers he meets on a rain-soaked evening. Sporting a …

Matt Damon Joins Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar”

The Playlist has learned that Matt Damon has joined Christopher Nolan’sInterstellar” in a small, undisclosed role. The character, like all of the roles in the film, is being kept under wraps, but sources close to the actor tell us he’ll only be shooting on the project for two weeks in Iceland (for comparison sake, the entire shoot is scheduled for four months). It's another quick appearance for Damon in a forthcoming film, as he also has a small cameo in Terry Gilliam’s “The Zero Theorem,” which debuts at the Venice Film Festival very soon (look for our review in the upcoming days).

Meanwhile, Damon looks to have found what will be his directorial debut: “A Murder Foretold," penned by Academy Award-winning “Argo” screenwriter Chris Terrio. The film is based off a 2008 New Yorker article by David Grann, that tells the true story of a man who is gunned down in the escalating violence in Guatemala, and leaves behind a videotape after his death implicating the president, his wi…

47 Ronin Japanese Trailer & Poster

Bucking the trend that says trailers following one another get longer, the new Japanese promo for 47 Ronin is here.

Drawn from a true Japanese story (but with a lot of fantastical elements bolted on and Keanu Reeves chucked into the middle of the tale), 47 Ronin finds a group of warriors in disarray.

After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honour to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai (Reeves), a half-breed they once rejected, as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors.

As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires the band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.



Time will tell whether this one will emerge from talk of production problems, budget crunches, re-editing and creative disagreem…

James Spader Cast As Ultron In The Avengers 2

Poor old DC.  Marvel with a casting bombshell that rains on its parade even as it mixes metaphors. What news, you ask? Only that James Spader will play the titular menace in Avengers sequel Age Of Ultron.

Originally announced by writer/director Joss Whedon at Comic-Con, Age Of Ultron will see Tony Stark and the shawarma-chomping gang taking on a brand new threat torn from the pages of Marvel comic lore and given a spit-and-polish origin story wash for the big screen. Ultron is a criminally insane, rogue sentient robot dedicated to conquest and the extermination of humanity. He comes loaded with several powers, including, strength, agility, stunning intelligence and, oh yes, a rage-filled loathing for our heroes and an intent to destroy them. Bad robot! Bad!

Spader seems like a fine choice to play the role, given his ability to play smarts, snark and menace when required. Plus he should have a proper handle on Whedon’s trademark snappy dialogue, assuming Ultron gets to be quippy. Marve…

Come Help John Herzfeld’s "REACH ME" Reach It's Kickstarter Goal

Writer/Director John Herzfeld’s Passion Project Has Three Weeks Remaining to Reach Kickstarter Campaign Goal.


Writer/Director John Herzfeld’s passion project is coming to fruition. REACH ME, an uplifting drama with Hollywood legend Sylvester Stallone and an accomplished ensemble cast including Kyra Sedgwick (TNT’s The Closer), Tom Berenger (Inception, Training Day), Terry Crews (The Expendables), Kelsey Grammer (Starz’ BOSS), and rap superstar Nelly, was hit with a major roadblock during filming last winter when an investor backed out during the second week of shooting. Defying the option to shut down production, producers poured their remaining financial resources into the project, believing this was a film the public deserved to see. While their efforts allowed the film to finish shooting, the film still requires a helping hand from the audience to complete.

The Kickstarter campaign for the film ends on September 19. For more information, check out the campaign page for clips, p…

BBC's LUTHER To Hit The Big Screen

While the idea of seeing Idris Elba’s rule-snapping John Luther stalking the big screen is hardly new, it would seem we are actually getting closer to it being a reality, with Luther creator Neil Cross talking up his progress at the Edinburgh Television Festival.

"I've written the script and we hope to get the film made next year," he said. "Idris is a brilliant leading man and we've hoped to turn Luther into a movie for a long time." Cross has drawn inspiration for the film’s plot from his novel about the character, The Calling, which is set before the series happens. It’ll allow for some characters – such as Indira Varma’s Zoe – to return, and set up everything that happens to John Luther in the original episodes.

Sadly for the series itself, the movie world has now snapped up that leading man for itself, and Elba’s busy big screen career means that we’ve likely seen the last of “Loofah” on our tellies, with the final episode of the recent third series d…

First Trailer For DALLAS BUYERS CLUB

Here is the first trailer for DALLAS BUYERS CLUB. Matthew McConaughey is almost unrecognizable in this trailer.

Spirit Award winner Matthew McConaughey portrays real-life Texas electrician Ron Woodroof, an ordinary man who found himself in a life-or-death battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies. In 1985, Ron was blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to live. Ron grabbed hold of non-toxic alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Seeking to avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines and supplements, he established a “buyers club,” which fellow H.I.V.-positive people could join for access to his supplies.

Jessica Alba Is Barely Lethal

Jessica Alba is perhaps not the first person you might think of to play a scheming villain. Which probably makes her a good casting choice for Fanboys director Kyle Newman’s new film, Barely Lethal.

Alba is indeed set to play Victoria Knox, the former associate of a teen assassin called Megan (Hailee Steinfeld), who becomes angry when the younger woman decides she’s had enough of the contract killing life, fakes her own death and enrols at a suburban high school. Which, as Chloe Grace Moretz might be able to tell you from Kick-Ass 2 and the upcoming Carrie, might be an even more dangerous place to be.

Samuel L Jackson is on board as Steinfeld’s mentor, with Newman directing from a script by John D’Arco. Barely Lethal kicks off filming in October.

Next up for Alba is Machete Kills, set for release here on October 11. She’ll also be seen in Dear Eleanor, Stretch and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which will hit our screens on August 29, 2014.
