Movie Review: Magicians: Life in the Impossible


Magic doc has some tricks up its sleeve.

Review by Brandon Wolfe


Magic is one of those areas of entertainment that can either make audiences cheer or wince. A good magic trick can always elicit a solid “wow,” but a commonly held perception of magic is that it’s often corny. As with anything, the difference comes down to skill and presentation. What can truly great magicians do to strike awe into the masses? What’s the trick behind the tricks?

Magicians: Life in the Impossible is a documentary that delves deep into the world of magicians and their craft, chronicling four different subjects over the span of four years to see how they each approach the timeless art of illusion. There’s Jon Armstrong, a self-proclaimed nerd who has conquered the art of the card trick; Brian Gillis, an erstwhile Tonight Show regular who now teaches magic at conferences; Jan Rouven, a German magician quickly rising up the ranks in Las Vegas; and David Minkin, an illusionist developing a television series.


All of these magicians take their work intensely seriously, and one of the best aspects of the film is the way its subjects span the spectrum of their industry. While Rouven and Minkin are rising stars, Armstrong is content to teach rather than occupy a spotlight, and Gillis’ fame is largely behind him, harder times having befallen him during the Great Recession. By showing us magicians on different rungs of the ladder, the film deftly offers a wide-ranging look at the commonalities of the field in a variety of different contexts.

The film is at its most engaging, perhaps not surprisingly, when it trains its cameras on the magic itself. Armstrong’s card tricks, Gillis’ tactic of stealing participants’ watches right off their wrists without detection and, especially, Minkin’s ability to levitate a fork in the air right in front of him are all stunning to witness. You watch these tricks unfold transfixed with wonderment, baffled by how they are being pulled off. These are all very talented men, each intently proficient in astonishing a crowd.


Also intriguing are the few hints we get of how the strings are being pulled, such as a Zapruder-esque examination of a Tonight Show card trick’s sleight-of-hand. Also compelling is the care each magician displays in the cultivation of their bits and the protectiveness they evince in ensuring that their work isn’t plundered by rivals. The film makes clear that magicians are not dissimilar to stand-up comedians in terms of developing and safeguarding their originality.

Magicians: Life in the Impossible falters a bit in the width of its focus. It takes several personal digressions into the lives of each of its subjects. For instance, because of the long duration of the production, we witness not only Armstrong’s wedding, but also his depression after the marriage in question has ended. We also get to see Mirkin deal with his ailing dog as well as Gillis being forced to downsize his living arrangements to reflect a new economic reality. These elements successfully humanize its participants and are each undeniably moving, but they often don’t serve the film’s thesis. They occasionally feel more suited to a protracted reality-television series rather than a documentary film with a specific focus.

Magicians isn’t the most dynamic documentary you’ll ever see, but in its presentation of a world most people probably don’t give a thought to, it is illuminating. It does a solid job of conveying the white-hot passion that burns within those who practice the art form. Put it this way, it doesn’t make your interest disappear.

Review: Cinemark Arden 14 Theaters

Cinemark tears down to rebuild an pseudo-elegant experience that's missing something.

Review by Matt Cummings

Regardless of where you live, it's clear that a renaissance is happening in theaters across the country. Hungry to lure moviegoers from their hi-def platforms at home, theater chains in the Sacramento region have been stepping up their games with more than just better food and adult beverages. Those standards now meet up with reserved seating, reclining leather chairs, and fewer seats to make the experience more exclusive. For the rebuilt Cinemark Arden 14 Theater, it's a lot of both, with most done very well. But something was missing from our recent visit, and we're not quite sure what to think of it.

Situated on the old grounds of The Century Stadium 14 Theater, Cinemark Arden has ditched the domes for a corner building situated in the back corner of the property. Essentially, you're sitting where you used to park. Encased in an appealing brick facade, the multi-story complex boasts features a large lit tower near the doors, which themselves are encased in tall panes of glass. It's certainly the kind of dramatic look that Studio Movie Grill didn't quite get right; but as you enter the lobby, there's the distinct impression that Cinemark has bigger plans.

Someone's Trying to Prove Something
Luxury is the name of the game here, with trendy couches and booths on the left, surrounded by a huge, well-lit lobby that looks very different from what you might expect. Celebrating the city's skyline, we're treated to a multi-frame image of the Sacramento Bridge and Old Sacramento that takes up most of the wall facing across from the couches. It's the first time I've seen such city buildings featured as art in a movie theater, but it's fairly plain and doesn't really serve any artistic purpose. We know that we live in Sacramento, and I would have appreciated some real media-themed art in its place. It's not awful, just a bit uninspired.

The real problem with the lobby is more about function. Situated dead center in the lobby is what Cinemark is calling a self-service concession island. It will serve popcorn, ice cream, beer, and other foods which we assume will be less nacho and more burger (none of these were offered at its soft opening). The real self-serve area is just below the city image, to the right of island. That's where you'll pick up/purchase popcorn, soda, etc. It's not a bad idea, but there appears to be only a few registers to accommodate what could be a huge line, especially if multiple shows are starting concurrently. You might be finished with your drink before you arrive to pay. Our evaluation night offered free popcorn and soda to guests, so we weren't able to see the whole machine in action. But right away, a big problem unrelated to food appeared.

Stuck in the right corner by self-serve area is a tiny ticket office. There's no place to establish rows for purchases, and it shows just what Cinemark is hoping will take place: that audiences will buy ahead rather than wait in line. What happens when a mass refund needs to happen, or if audiences wish to walk in to buy their tickets to save the convenience fees? On a big weekend I can see these lines stretching out the door. Which presents another problem that the island causes: there's no place to line up in anticipation of seating. Again, the idea that audiences will now reserve seats - at no difference in price - might keep the lines from forming in the first place, but it's not exactly clear how this work when customers arrive early. The island really cuts off any flow to the theaters, located in the rear and right of the building. However, I do commend Cinemark for stepping up to offer reserved seating, as it makes getting to the theater a much more pleasant experience.

The Theater
Things get better once you get to your seat, which are wide leather chairs with drink holes that recline, providing plenty of space for other moviegoers to walk past you without having to reset your position. Unfortunately, seats in our row were malfunctioning and I had to climb out of my seat after viewing The Accountant. The main theater is gorgeous but only contains about 300 seats. This is the new trend: make it smaller to improve the experience. I love the idea and have seen it work at better places such as Folsom's Palladio Theaters. There, the seats are wider and more comfortable; but neither offers food/drink service like Studio Movie Grill. Sound was impressive and every seat should satisfy. Walk down the hallway towards the smaller theaters, and you get a similarly plushy experience (more on that later).

Cost and Seating
We weren't told how much seats would cost, but one has to wonder how Arden can make money with half of their seats missing, especially when several rooms house only 59-62 seats. No theater will be over 300 (Stadium had four over that number), so you have to assume that scheduling will be key. Bathrooms are adequate, but only the sinks are automatic. Don't get me wrong, it's better than the tiled mayhem of Stadium, but there were places for moviegoers to stand and talk after a show was over. That's the lobby now, which could be too busy for such reflections to take place. But there's something else about it that gives us pause: maybe it's the collection of the design errors in the lobby, or the wonderful scissor-like mural in the hallway that should have been placed above the lobby instead. It's unlikely that our affinity for Stadium still has us pining for its return, but the now-trendy look could get old fast, especially if the materials don't hold up. We'll have to go back during the holidays to see if our concerns were justified, but for now it's hard to pin down our 100% support.

The Bottom Line
Cinemark Arden 14 isn't just the only building to rise from Stadium's ashes. It's clear that the City of Sacramento did their homework in redesigning an aging complex. They brought in desirable commercial properties like Nordstrom Rack and Home Goods (forming one point of a triangle at the street corner), encouraged more food to take up shop near Applebee's (on another point), and the theater forming the final point. In essence, you have an exceptional area of food, entertainment, and shopping that doesn't need the nearby Arden Fair Mall to be successful. That's perhaps the real victory behind the theater's returning, heralding an expansion that should pay off high dividends, once the theater figures out how all of its pieces will fit.

For now, we'll call Cinemark Arden 14 Theaters a guarded success, largely due to the smart design near food and shopping. It is an uograde to be sure, but tell me you don't feel like something's missing.

Sons Of Anarchy Spinoff Is One Step Closer To Becoming A Reality

THR is reporting 'Sons' creator Kurt Sutter will co-write, exec produce and direct the project.

FX has officially ordered a pilot for the project, titled Mayans MC,

Sons of Anarchy co-creators Kurt Sutter and Elgin James co-wrote the pilot script. Sutter will exec produce and James will co-exec produce the drama from Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions. Sutter is also set to direct the pilot, which begins production in March.

Mayans MC is set in a post Jax Teller world, where EZ Reyes, a prospect in the Mayan MC charter on the Cali-Mexi border, struggles with his desire for vengeance against the cartel and his need for respect from the women he loves.

The Mayans played a pivotal role on Sons, which was FX's highest-rated drama series in the cable network's history during its seven-season run.

Sutter first revealed he was developing an offshoot of the popular franchise in a cover story for The Hollywood Reporter in August 2015 prior to the launch of his period drama The Bastard Executioner. He said the spinoff would be a different show and that "tone, pace, storytelling will be unique." (The spinoff will not be set in Northern California as Sons was.)

"I wanted to find a strong, unique Latino voice. Because I didn't think a white guy from Jersey should be writing about Latin culture and traditions. Elgin is that voice," Sutter said at the time.

Mayans MC received a script order at FX in May. The project comes after Sutter pulled the plug on his own series, Bastard Executioner, in a Hollywood Reporter ad in November 2015. "I don’t want to write something that nobody's f—ing watching," he told THR at the time about the show's low viewership.

Should Mayans MC go to series, it would be the latest spinoff as cable networks look to use familiar IP to break through in the era of Peak TV. AMC is home to spinoffs Fear the Walking Dead and Better Call Saul.

#SNAPCHAT TO CREATE FIRST-EVER 3D INTERACTIVE LENS FOR RELEASE OF “UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS”


3D Lens Launching December 1, 2016 in Advance of Film’s Release on January 6, 2017

In support of the upcoming action/horror film UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS, the latest installment in the blockbuster UNDERWORLD franchise, Screen Gems has partnered with the wildly popular platform Snapchat to develop the first-ever sponsored interactive 3D Lens to reach their 150+ million daily users and allow the studio to communicate with Snapchatters in the most interactive and personal way. The “Underworld 3D Lens” uses a smartphone’s gyroscope to build an immersive Underworld-themed environment around the Snapchatter rather than the standard overlay to which users are accustomed. As the phone turns, the background adapts to the movement.

The “Underworld 3D Lens” will be released nationwide on December 29, 2016 but fans will have the opportunity to “snap to unlock” and get a sneak peek via Snapcodes released prior to the launch starting on December 1, 2016. The custom Snapcodes will be incorporated and amplified through various social and content partners, TV, and print materials in the weeks leading up to Lens’ release.

As one of the film’s promotional partners, Snapchat’s augmented reality, immersive experience is spreading awareness and excitement for the film. The 3D Lens transports users into Underworld and drops them into a 360-degree environment. By panning to the sides, fans can explore the various worlds from the movie. In addition, the Lens transforms the user into a vampire similar to the film’s lead character Selene, played by Kate Beckinsale.

Coming to theaters nationwide on January 6, 2017 from Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment, UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS follows Vampire death dealer, Selene as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (played by Theo James) and his father Thomas (played by Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice. The film is directed by Anna Foerster, and the screenplay is by Cory Goodman, with story by Kyle Ward and Cory Goodman, and based on characters created by Kevin Grevioux and Len Wiseman & Danny McBride.

Watch #Netflix Offline With The New Download Feature

Here's some news from Netflix to make your travel and holiday plans a little easier.

As announced earlier this morning, Netflix is bringing offline downloads to your phone or tablet. Available on iOS or Android devices, users can select shows or movies to download now and watch at their convenience, even if they're offline.

At first glance, hour-long episodes of shows appear to take up about 200-250mb of space on your mobile device, so plan accordingly.

Business Insider pointed out that most of the available programs seem to be Netflix original series, though the newly released Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life is not included. Other Netflix original series, such as Stranger Things, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and the newly added program about Queen Elizabeth II, The Crown, are ready to download.

Though not every series is available, much like shows on Amazon Prime's video platform, production studios may decide to alter their agreements with Netflix to become available for this new service.
There's a page within the updated Netflix app that will list what shows are available, but you'll also notice the download button as you browse to applicable content.

Get ready for your upcoming road trips, or cross-country flights, as this will definitely help bored or young travelers pass the time

First Look At Alpha 5 From The Upcoming Power Rangers Movie

With Bryan Cranston voicing powerful, peaceful alien Zordon and Elizabeth Banks physically present as villain Rita Repulsa, the movie will find the Rangers battling Rita's evil schemes and defending the Earth while figuring out their own teenage issues.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To A College Screening For #WHYHIM In PHOENIX

Enter for a chance to see WHY HIM? on November 30 at 7:00 PM in PHOENIX.


Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry—and Ned’s panic level—escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS Returns To Theaters December 2nd

Paramount Pictures will re-release the critically-acclaimed crowd-pleaser FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg, and directed by Stephen Frears, in select theaters December 2.

The film’s stars have been praised for their performances from critics and awards groups alike – Streep will receive the prestigious Cecil B. Demille Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association at the 2017 Golden Globes, Grant recently won the Hollywood Supporting Actor award at the Hollywood Film Awards, and Helberg will receive the Virtuosos Award from the Santa Barbara Film Festival recognizing his outstanding breakout performance in the film.

Joel Edgerton Talks About His Star Wars Cameo

Joel Edgerton is one of those character actors who’s been in so many movies, it’s hard to remember them all. Right now, he’s getting a well-deserved moment in the spotlight for his lead performance in Loving (in theaters now), the true story of the Virginia couple whose 1967 Supreme Court case invalidated laws against interracial marriage. But Edgerton’s first big Hollywood moment was something quite different: the decidedly not-true story of Anakin Skywalker. While promoting Loving, the Australian actor spoke to Uproxx about playing Owen Lars (future Uncle Owen to Luke Skywalker) in the Star Wars prequels Attack of the Clones (2002) and, very briefly, Revenge of the Sith (2005).

“I found out I was doing Star Wars on my birthday,” Edgerton recalled. “My brother had bought me a video player, and I thought that was pretty rad, and then I got a phone call saying I could do Star Wars. And so that was one of the greatest birthday presents that I’ve ever had.”


Though Edgerton was in Attack of the Clones for — in his own words — “like three minutes,” he discovered that nothing opened doors in the film industry like being a friend of Obi-Wan. “It became my big swindle to meet agents in Hollywood,” Edgerton said. “Because George Lucas took 18 months to put the movie together. And all I had to say was that I was in Star Wars and they were like, ‘Oh, come in. Sit down. Let’s talk.’ And then it was, ‘By the way, I’m not in the movie for very long.‘”

Though it’s far from his most notable role, Edgerton is constantly reminded of his Skywalker lineage by die-hard Star Wars fans. “We were coming into the AOL building today, and there’s people there, you know, there’s always people with photographs for you to sign. And there’s this photograph of me, I must be 25 or 24 or something, in my Uncle Owen outfit,” he said with a laugh. “And I was like, “Oh, no.”

Alien: Covenant Poster & New Release Date

The first thing you notice about the Alien: Covenant poster that has just been put online via 20th Century Fox's Twitter feed is the slavering jaws of a xenomorph (or whatever version exists in the film). And then you might also notice that the image indicates a change for the film - it'll arrive in May next year, instead of August.


Alien: Covenant finds director Ridley Scott heading back to the Alien universe after Prometheus, and following a colony ship called the Covenant headed for a remote planet, a place that the crew initially thinks is an uncharted paradise but turns out to be dark and full of terrors. And the only inhabitant is synthetic life form David (Michael Fassbender), who claims to be the lone survivor of the Prometheus mission.

Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride make up the ship's crew, and it appears we'll catch up with Noomi Rapace's Dr. Elizabeth Shaw. Plus we'll be getting a double dose of Fassbender, as he's also playing another synthetic, this one named Walter.

Alien: Covenant, which was originally scheduled for 4 August, now seems scheduled for 19 May, which should be day and date both here and in the US. Can the trailer be far behind, given that altered release?

And while we're talking release dates, the studio has also announced dates for two untitled superhero movies, one for 2 November, 2018, and another on 14 February, 2019. Given Deadpool 2's recent hiring of director David Leitch, it's a fair bet it'll fill one of those slots (probably the 2018 slot). The other is more of a mystery for now, but possibly a new X-Men movie (even if it isn't the further adventures of Xavier and co.) Then there is a slot scheduled for 21 December, 2018 to be filled by an "untitled" film from James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment. With Cameron previously targeting Christmastime releases for the Avatar sequels, you have to think this means Avatar 2 finally has a new home. Wonder why they didn't bother to name it, unless JC has been quietly producing something else? Where would the man find the time?

Moana Wins Thanksgiving Box Office

Disney's very good year continued apace across the typically busy Thanksgiving holiday weekend – which for movies usually stretches from the Wednesday before the actual celebration. Moana, the company's latest animated offering, got off to a strong start at the American box office, earning $55.5 million for the weekend and $81.1 million across the period from its release on Wednesday, according to studio estimates.

That figure means Moana enters the charts as Disney's second-highest opening in the Thanksgiving period, behind just Frozen, and seems likely to have the same longevity – adding in its overseas totals, the movie is sailing towards $100 million after just a few days. With the all-powerful 'toon sweeping into the top spot, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them had to vacate its throne after just one week, but still earned a healthy $45.1 million across the three-day weekend. And Doctor Strange slipped to third with $13.3 million after four weeks in the charts, but has something of its own to celebrate, becoming Marvel's most successful character introduction movie with more than $600 million worldwide.

Fourth place went to Robert Zemeckis' World War II tale Allied, which didn't manage to perform despite being targeted as something for grownups who didn't want to watch family films or superheroes. The new drama earned $13 million for the three days, and $18 million taking its pre-Thanksgiving release. Fifth was Arrival, as the sci-fi film continued to do well. It's now up to $62.3 million in the States after adding $11.2 million this weekend.

Trolls, hit by the new animated arrival, fell from third to sixth, earning $10.3 million. Family comedy drama Almost Christmas took in $7.6 million. A slightly less charming festive offering landed with a thud, as Bad Santa 2 received coal in its stocking from both critics and audiences, opening on Wednesday and ending up in eighth with $9 million.

Hacksaw Ridge fell to ninth, adding $5.4 million and The Edge Of Seventeen slipped to 10th with $2.9 million. And we have to voyage outside of the top 10 for a moment to report on Warren Beatty's latest, Rules Don't Apply. The comedy drama failed to catch the audience's attention and opened 12th with $2.1 million. It's a sorry end for a film that Beatty has long wanted to make.

Tom Holland Joins Daisy Ridley In Chaos Walking

THR is reporting Doug Liman is on board to direct the YA post-apocalyptic thriller.

Tom Holland, who is playing Spider-Man in next year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, is in negotiations to join Daisy Ridley in Lionsgate’s post-apocalyptic thriller Chaos Walking.

Doug Liman is directing the project, an adaptation of the best-selling YA novel by Patrick Ness.

The story takes place in a world where all women have been killed by a germ and all living creatures can hear one another's thoughts in a stream of images, words and sounds called Noise.

Holland would star as a boy forced to flee his town with his loyal dog and who comes upon a strange sight: a girl (Ridley).

Oscar-winning screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) worked on the script, as did Jamie Linden (Money Monster).

Doug Davison, who produced the Liman-directed Tom Cruise starrer Mena, is producing alongside Allison Shearmur (Rogue One, Cinderella).

Holland made his feature debut with the 2012 tsunami drama The Impossible and made a splashy superhero debut as Peter Parker in this year’s Captain America: Civil War. Earlier this month, he signed on for a key role opposite Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon in the period drama The Current War.
