Movie Review: The Snowman

Television Review: #AloneShow

Not The Typical History Channel Show
Review by David Clark History channel is once again distancing themselves from the stigma of being a documentary channel with Alone, the latest in competitive survival reality television. Alone is not simply another Survivor or Naked and Afraid. To win Alone contestants will need an impressive set of survival skills, but they will also need a level of mental fortuity that has never before been seen in a reality competition. Taking place on the remote Vancouver Island wilderness, Alone pits 10 men against nature, each other, and themselves. It is a last man standing style game with a grand prize of five hundred thousand dollars. For many people that has the potential to be a life changing amount of money which explains the sacrifices some of the contestants have made. Many of them have left behind families for an unknown amount of time. That is the other catch. Shows like Survivor have an elimination process that guarantees the show …

Final #WOLVERINE Movie To Be Based On "Old Man Logan" Comic Book Run

Via Popcorn Talk, Marvel Movie News said that the next new WOLVERINE solo movie, which will mark Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine, will have its story inspired by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s 2008 eight-issue comic, “Old Man Logan” which is set in an alternate universe, 50 years in the future where world’s supervillains team up to destroy all of the world’s superheroes.

No confirmation yet, so file that one under rumor for now.

Michael Green (“Blade Runner 2″, “Green Lantern”) will write the script for the third WOLVERINE solo movie which is going to be directed once again by James Mangold (“The Wolverine”) and yes, Hugh Jackman will reprise his iconic role, and this will be the final time he’ll play this iconic mutant.
Green is collaborating with Mangold on the script. WOLVERINE 3 hits theaters March 3, 2017.

Sony Pictures & Paramount Pictures Skipping #ComicCon 2015

Look who else will not be attending Comic-Con 2015. Matt did a nice piece on why Marvel doesn't need Comic-Con. And now this news.

According to Variety, San Diego’s lucrative fanboy convention will be missing some key players next month: Marvel Studios, home of the Avengers, won’t be dressing up for Comic-Con while Sony Pictures and Paramount Pictures have also decided to skip the Hall H presentations.

“It wasn’t a knock against Comic-Con,” one spokesperson explains, “the film cycles just didn’t allow it.”

Sony and Paramount just didn’t have the fanboy material to promote, said sources, while Marvel, which last missed the confab in 2011, already unveiled its new wave of Avengers at a special fan event in October.

Plus, cost of sending a number of movies to Comic-Con can also set back a studio a few hundred thousand dollars, so “why force the issue?,” one exec asks.

Disney is expected to showcase its upcoming slate, which includes sequels for “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Finding…

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For Me and Earl and the Dying Girl on June 29th at 7:00 PM in Tucson.


Winner of the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL is the uniquely funny, moving story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a high school senior who is trying to blend in anonymously, avoiding deeper relationships as a survival strategy for navigating the social minefield that is teenage life.


He even describes his constant companion Earl (R.J. Cyler), with whom he makes short film parodies of classic movies, as more of a 'co-worker’ than a best friend. But when Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) insists he spend time with Rachel (Olivia Cooke) – a girl in his class who has just been diagnosed with cancer - he slowly discovers how worthwhile the true bonds of friendship can be.

Movie Review: 'Dope'

The imperfect comedy Dope is still a laugh-out-loud good time.
Review by Matt Cummings
In Director/Writer Rick Famuyiwa's Dope, Malcolm (Shameik Moore) is a high school senior who wants desperately to escape the gang-infested Inglewood for the success of Harvard. He's smart but dorky, ambitious yet mindful of the problems around him, loves 90's Hip-Hop, and dresses like he was transported out of a Kid n' Play video. His friends the 14% African-American Jib and the dike Diggy (Tony Revolori and Kiersey Clemons) are also band mates and band geeks, jamming out after school to the disgust of the custodians. But Malcolm's life changes when he's invited to a club where the thug Dom (rapper A$ap Rocky) gets involved in a drug-related shootout, dumping his bricks of drugs and a weapon into Malcolm's backpack. Upon its discovery, Malcolm must decide whether to dump it, deliver it to AJ (Roger Smith), or the craziest idea: sell it.

Dope is hardcore funny, filled…

Television Review: 'The Roosevelts: An Intimate History'

The engrossing, impressive The Roosevelts: An Intimate History peels away the story behind this complex family.
Review By Matt Cummings
The story of America is usually chronicled through glitzy, face-paced editing with a smattering of unknown college professors. It sometimes works (see Nazi Mega Weapons), but for the most part it's an uneven affair at best. The Ken Burns documentary The Roosevelts: An Intimate History demonstrates that the more traditional methods of creating a documentary still work, resulting in a powerful experience about the 20th Century's most beloved but complex family.

History takes us through nearly 60 years of family history, starting with the irrepressible Theodore (voiced by Paul Giamatti), brought whose big energy and unwavering foresight ushered the US away from the demons of Reconstruction and into the modern manufacturing world that Alexander Hamilton desired so greatly. But he's also a champion of nature and a social worker who believed…

DVD Review: Transporter: The Series - The Complete Second Season

Frank Martin’s small-screen exploits still a road to nowhere.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
Filmmaker Luc Besson, that prolific purveyor of Euro-junk action thrillers, seems hellbent on making a cottage industry out of The Transporter. The original 2002 film, the coming-out party for Jason Statham’s tenure as one of filmdom’s core badasses, was a surprise hit and spawned two sequels, with a reboot-flavored third on the way. Besson also launched The Transporter as a TV series in 2012, to relatively little fanfare. Besson, famously a voracious fan of dollar signs (we didn’t get those nonsensical Taken sequels for the sake of art), clearly works under the impression that there is a wealth of profit potential in this franchise, yet the material at the core of The Transporter empire is so thin that the amount of stretching Besson is attempting to do with it threatens to tear it apart.

Case in point, Besson has now completed a second season of Transporter: The Series and the franchise’s limitati…

Emma Stone Turned Down Ghostbusters

The prospect of bustin' did not make her feel good.
By Brandon Wolfe
Back when Paul Feig’s female-driven reboot of Ghostbusters began congealing, one name that kept getting tossed around was that of Emma Stone, who was personally championed for the role by her Zombieland and Aloha co-star, former Ghostbuster Bill Murray. Now word comes that Stone was indeed offered a part in the film, but declined to participate, not wanting to take part in another mega-franchise so soon after her stint in the Amazing Spider-Man films.

"The script was really funny,” said Stone. “It just didn't feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment - it's a whole thing. I think maybe I need a minute before I dive back into that water."

Speaking of the film, which begins shooting tomorrow with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth, The Boston Herald has unearthed a few tidbits about its heretofore unknown plot:

Movie Review: 'Inside Out'

Pixar's Inside Out doesn't use its inside voice as well as it could.
Review by Matt Cummings
WARNING: Spoilers ahead
In Pixar's 15th animated film Inside Out, the 11-year-old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) has moved from the idyllic Minnesota to San Francisco with her parents (Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan). Riley is intelligent, loves ice hockey, and has strong friendships, all managed by a team of emotions in her head that store core memories and fuel five theme parks in her mind. The lighthearted Joy (Amy Poehler) is the dominant emotion, striving to make sure Riley stays happy, while Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), and Disgust (Mindy Kaling) keep her safe and on guard. After the black sheep of the group Sadness (Phyllis Smith) accidentally poisons Riley's core memories, Joy and Sadness are transported to the far reaches of Riley's mind, forcing the two to make the long trek back. But they need to hurry: without Riley's core memories, the them…
