Movie Review: #TheBirthofaNation

Can the beautifully complex The Birth of a Nation survive against an impossible wave of scandal?

Review by Matt Cummings

If the current political and social climate of our country has you wanting for something more pure and true, The Birth of a Nation comes at just the right time, for what should be Director/Writer Nate Parker's finest hour. The question is whether his untenable personal scandal will wreck this incredible film's chances for Oscar success and cinematic immortality.

Life in the deep South of the early 1800's is one of blacks in bondage and cruel masters intent on seeing their property remain so. Even with these roles so clearly defined, the educated Virginia slave Nat Turner (Parker) enjoys a markedly better life. His owner Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer) sees great things in Nat, allowing him to run a small church on the plantation and even defends him against more abusive owners like Raymond Cobb (Jackie Earl Haley). But Samuel is also keenly aware that his family's name and reputation are in jeopardy, and soon begins to treat Nat with less regard even though he's been allowed to preach at other plantations to worn and weary slaves. After an especially brutal beating by Samuel, Nat decides to rebel against his master, killing him and several other owners in the hope of staging a much larger conflict that would see the end of "The Peculiar Institution." As Turner executes his plan, all of Virginia rallies against him and his tattered rebels, leading to a final conflict that will see him either be hanged or gain his hard-fought freedom.

The Birth of a Nation is one part historical epic, one part horror film, and one part action flick. Parker commands each like a field general, never losing our attention as Turner's Rebellion heads towards its violent and bloody conclusion. He never shies away from the disgusting nature of slavery and the even worse violence owners regularly practiced on their 'property.' Parker even shows us women slaughtered in their beds, hanging from nooses, and beat up so badly one could hardly recognize them. It's all part and parcel of the experience, but it feels a lot more important than just a check-box director who throws it in there hoping for Oscar sympathies.

The Birth of a Nation has something to say, struggling within itself to identify the human condition in a time when our country's grand experiment was a mere 60 years old. The answers aren't pretty, and might even be too much for some to handle, but that inner turmoil portrays a deeply ugly South where even the stately mansions are soiled with the stain of slavery. Everyone is affected by it - especially the owners themselves - as their lack of humanity enforced by the law allowed them to control human beings in a way that drives Turner to start the rebellion in the first place. That contrast and the struggles which Turner and the cast go through to both show the inhumanity and to attempt to answer these questions makes for a compelling story.

If there's two things that bothered me about The Birth of a Nation, it's the performances of both the younger Nat and another boy - neither is particularly well-realized, and in some cases really hamper Parker's otherwise perfect production. Otherwise, casting is excellent without knocking you over the head over the atrocities Southerners committed. I'm not kidding when I say that The Birth of a Nation handles this with incredible dexterity, even when relating one disturbing image after another. There's a scene where an owner - prior to his deserved execution - is actually sleeping with a young female slave, a topic that Parker doesn't shy away from, including the mass hangings of blacks after Turner's own execution is carried out.

There's also some interesting side history that gets left out here, including the effort Turner and his army made to flee to the Florida Territory, which at this point is owned by abolitionist France. Had Turner been able to get there, he might have enjoyed a wider conflict; that race to the border is as interesting as the Rebellion itself, and I wish a moment had been taken to highlight it.

But it's unclear whether audiences will even care about the film, as outage continues to rage against Parker, who this week refused to take advice from none other than Oprah herself for rescuing his tattered image. As we well know, The Oscars are as political as they are decoration, and Parker's rough week won't help his chances come February if he doesn't right the ship and soon.

Beautifully complex and expertly shot, The Birth of a Nation is a must-see for both adults and mid-teens ready for some harsh history lessons. It does suffer from an annoying amount of youngster acting, but that shouldn't keep you from witnessing what should have been a front-runner Oscar candidate. Parker's legal and personal troubles threaten to upend one of the most important films of this decade, a fact which only time can help erase. For now, see it as part of your Oscar To-Do List, and decide for yourself if its brilliance will allow you to also forgive it.

The Birth of a Nation is rated R for disturbing violent content, and some brief nudity and has a runtime of 120 minutes.

John Wick: Chapter 2 Trailer & Poster

Chapter 2 remains largely mysterious, plot-wise, at this point, though we can expect more of the action mayhem as Wick's past catches up to him. We'll see more of the world he thought he left behind, and more of the world itself, as the cameras headed to Rome for some of the production.

Ian McShane and Lance Reddick are back and the cast also includes Common, Laurence Fishburne, John Leguizamo and Ruby Rose.

Movie Review: #TheGirlOnTheTrain

The Girl on The Train is a messy but expertly-acted thriller.

Review by Matt Cummings

In the world of feminist hype, men and women seem strictly divided on opposite sides of the street: men are perceived as evil, while women are silent victims doomed to never right their ship. Universal's The Girl on The Train never gets that smart, wasting a ton of good performances on gratuitous skin scenes that do nothing to further the unsatisfying and messy plot.

For the ex-wife drunkard Rachel (Emily Blunt), life is now a lonely trip on the Amtrak between home and work, forced daily to ride by her former home while she watches the homewrecker Anna (Rebecca Ferguson) enjoy a life with Rachel's ex-husband (Justin Theroux). Each time the train slows to accommodate a faster-moving one, Rachel is given unwanted access that can only be minimized with large quantities of vodka. But when her former neighbor - the sexually-charged Megan (Haley Bennett) - disappears after Rachel witnesses her with another man (Edgar Ramirez), Rachel becomes determined to find her killer. Unknowingly, she enters a mysterious world where her own terrible history will intersect with murder and martial abuse, forcing Rachel to re-analyze her whole life while trying to not descend into a murderous alcoholic rage.

The Girl on The Train sports excellent acting - perhaps some of the best we've seen all year - it looks as raw and unfiltered as the plot might suggest - thanks to Director Tate Taylor's unnerving shots of Blunt as she struggles to maintain her sanity. Blunt precariously balances her character's psychoses with just enough ferocity to not make it feel like she's chewing script. We can't help but feel powerless to help Rachel, as well as the other characters in Train, and that's part of the problem. It suffers from a slew of hastily-drawn connections that are never fully explained. Supposedly major characters drift in and out of the storyline, condemned to offer acute insight one minute then disappear into a dark tunnel never to be seen again.

For all Taylor's done here to assemble perhaps the deepest cast of the year, The Girl on The Train tends to play feminism strictly in 1980's terms: women sit on every word their men say, do what they're told, reacting to the actions of the men instead of Black Widow-ing up to escape their prisons. Bennett, for all her immediate sexuality and incredible stage presence, she's mostly relegated to an oversexed woman with issues that feel manufactured. As terrible as one event is to witness, we never feel Megan is potential a real person who might live down the street. She's gorgeous and flirty, but all the reasons for it never feel enough for us to care. When she disappears halfway through The Girl on The Train, it's actually an opportunity to remove some of the story's driftwood.

Men here don't fare too well either. One character literally disappears for the last 20 minutes, while Evans' Scott seems poorly designed. Evans is one of my favorite in Hollywood, and yet Taylor treats him as a gorgeous hunk with apparent anger issues. That's it. He never grows beyond it, existing merely as a plot device for Watson. Based on the characters he's played (Mulholland Drive, American Psycho), it's entirely possible that Theroux's appearance will come off as a spoiler to audiences familiar with his work. But Taylor has multiple chances to portray Theroux the right way, giving Watson time to figure out why she's supposedly enamored of him. But The Girl on The Train never takes that chance, settling instead on Vodka as a reason instead of the real issue of marital abuse. That discussion would have been more appealing than anything we get here.

The Girl on The Train is really just an unintelligent version of Gone Girl, happy to exist as cinematic eye candy than a thriller worthy of our attention. Ferguson, whose star is on the obvious and well-deserved rise, merely looks like the idiot who made a bad choice in men rather than an intelligent victim who deserves our empathy. Anna and Rachel join forces mostly because they're thrown in to the same blender to see what comes out. Granted they have excellent chemistry but it all feels too short and wasted.

The Girl on The Train fancies itself another Gone Girl. Don't be fooled: it's messy and devolves into a standard kidnapping flick that leaves little to the imagination. See it based on the cast and Blunt's excellent performance, but be prepared to be underwhelmed at the rest.

The Girl on The Train is rated R for violence, sexual content, language and nudity and has a runtime of 112 minutes.

MARVEL'S LUKE CAGE SOUNDTRACK ON YELLOW VINYL @MondoNews Pre-Order Starts October 7th

MONDO ANNOUNCES "MARVEL'S LUKE CAGE" SOUNDTRACK ON YELLOW VINYL

Pre-order Begins on October 7th


Mondo is excited to unveil the soundtrack for Marvel's Luke Cage with collectible artwork of the bulletproof hero by Matthew Woodson. Composers Adrian Younge (Something About April) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) have combined forces to produce one of the best scores of 2016 featuring an inspired, genre-bending blend of orchestral score and 90s hip-hop beats, filtered through the sonic lens of the works of Ennio Morricone.

It's no surprise that the score hovers in the same terrain of the Spaghetti Western soundtracks of Morricone - the narrative of Luke Cage plays out like a modern Western, only set in Harlem. Younge and Muhammad have meticulously crafted one of the most unique sonic landscapes in the history of television.

"We sought to create a score that reflects the world of Luke Cage. We see this world as a place where classic cinema meets classic Hip Hop," said composers Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad.

Marvel's Luke Cage tells the story of Luke Cage (Mike Colter), a hoodie- wearing, unbreakable ex-con who fights to clear his name and save his neighborhood. After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city - forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury. Marvel's Luke Cage is rated TV-MA and is streaming now only on Netflix.

Blade Runner's Sequel Is Titled Blade Runner 2049 & First BTS Image

We're now a year away from the much-anticipated (and much-puzzled over) sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 classic Blade Runner. Many of the details are still under wraps, but at least it's no longer untitled: the film is called Blade Runner 2049.

Which makes sense, since the movie is apparently set several (the title makes it three, since the original takes place in 2019) decades after Scott's film. Harrison Ford is back as Rick Deckard, and the world he inhabits has just gotten worse, with environmental catastrophe plaguing humanity.

Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Carla Juri, Barkhad Abdi and Dave Bautista are also among the cast, with Sicario and Arrival's Denis Villeneuve calling the shots.

Third Wolverine Movie Titled "Logan" & First Poster

Hugh Jackman is about to hang up his claws. The actor will soon be appearing for the very last time as the most iconic X-Man for a third Wolverine solo movie, with James Mangold back in the director’s chair after The Wolverine. It had been going under the snappy working title of Untitled Wolverine Film. But now we know the official title: Logan.

 X-Men fans praying for an R-rated movie will be pleased to see an F-bomb arrives very early on.

Mangold also later revealed the first poster.

Intriguingly, the script also offered something of a mission statement for the film within the very Shane Black-y stage directions, which seem to set itself apart from the modern superhero template. Here’s what’s written, in case you can’t quite see it in that image:

“Now might be a good time to talk about the ‘fights’ described in the next 100 or so pages. Basically, if you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG fuckathon, this ain’t your movie.

In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won’t bounce. They will die.

As for our hero, well, he’s older now and it’s clear his abilities aren’t what they once were. He’s fading on the inside and his diminished healing factor keeps him in a constant state of chronic pain – hence booze as a painkiller.”

Filming has wrapped on the project, which is said to take loose inspiration from the Old Man Logan comic storyline (though it may just take the element of Logan's advanced age) and will star Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant alongside Jackman.

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN Red Band Trailer Starring @HaileeSteinfeld

A new Red Band trailer for STX Entertainment's comedy/drama THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN, in theaters nationwide on November 18.

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club - an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it's like to grow up as a young woman in today's modern world.



Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life is no easier for high school junior Nadine (Hailee Steinfeld), who is already at peak awkwardness when her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) starts dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson). All at once, Nadine feels more alone than ever, until the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.

The film also stars Kyra Sedgwick as Nadine's well-meaning but completely ineffective mother, and Woody Harrelson as Nadine's History teacher, mentor and reluctant sounding board. The Edge of Seventeen is produced by Academy Award winner James L. Brooks - the filmmaker behind big-screen, character-driven classics such as Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News, Big, Say Anything, The Simpsons, Jerry Maguire and As Good as It Gets.

#SuicideSquad Extended Cut Coming To Blu-ray Dec. 13

Warner Bros. has released a teaser for the home entertainment release. It looks like Suicide Squad will be getting an extended cut after all.



Warner Bros. has released a short teaser announcing an extended cut for the film's home entertainment release, which will be available on Digital HD Nov. 15 and Blu-ray Dec. 13.

It feels good to be bad...Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?

A secret government agency, led by the ruthless, high-ranking official Amanda Waller, recruits some of the most dangerous, incarcerated villains on the planet to execute dangerous black ops missions and save the world from a potentially apocalyptic threat from a mysterious, supernatural entity. If anything goes wrong on this mission, the government will not be liable but rather can place the blame on the villains, who are inherently evil people. A small bomb is implanted in each member of the squad's neck with the capability of detonating any time one of the members tries to rebel or escape. It will be up to this assembled team of villains to prevail over the seemingly impossible events that will unfold before them, in what many deem to be a "suicide mission".
