The Last Word on ‘Doctor Strange’

(Sigh) Okay, which Marvel is this? ‘Doctor Strange‘?

Another one I’ve never f*cking heard of! (Sigh) You know what we really need, is a “Brenda Starr” movie! Seriously, all the damn superheroes and reboots of comics, where the hell’s our “Brenda Starr, Reporter”, movie! No, not the Brooke Shields one, I mean, a real one! A reboot of that would be awesome! (Sigh)

Anyway, ‘Doctor Strange‘ the latest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a term that I really wish I didn’t have to use, and the Doctor, Dr. Steven Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is an actual doctor, and really named Strange. Anyway, Dr. Strange is a high-profile and uber-talented brain and neurosurgeon, who, thanks to, stupidity, gets in an accident, He loses several nerves in his hands and struggles through recovery, despite the best efforts of Christine (Rachel McAdams) his ex-girlfriend and fellow doctor.

TV adaption of Snowpiercer given the green light; Jennifer Connelly to head up the cast

Author: Zehra Phelan

The TV adaptation of Bong Joon Ho’s Snowpiercer has been given the go-ahead at TNT with Jennifer Connelly heading up the cast.

The recent movie adaptation by Bong Joon Ho’s 2013 film starred Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Go Ah-sung, John Hurt, and Ed Harris. It is a remarkable film and, astonishingly, has never been released in the UK.

The movie takes place aboard the globe-spanning Snowpiercer train which holds the last remnants of humanity after an attempt at climate engineering in order to stop global warming has unintentionally created a new ice age.

Set seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the series will focus on the remnants of humanity, who inhabit a gigantic, perpetually-moving train that circles the globe. As it does, issues of class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival are raised.

How the Director of ‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ Created a Documentary From Virtually Nothing

How the Director of ‘David Bowie: The Last Five Years’ Created a Documentary From Virtually Nothing
Watching the documentary “David Bowie: The Last Five Years” — which aired on the BBC last year but sees its U.S. premiere tonight on HBO — it’s easy to get the sense that the artist allowed the filmmakers incredible access during the last few months of his life.

He didn’t.

The film was meticulously researched and assembled after Bowie’s death in January 2016 by BBC director Francis Whately, who knew and was friendly with the artist, having directed the 2013 documentary “Five Years,” which looked at five key years in the singer’s life and got a thumbs-up from Bowie himself. Yet this new film on Bowie’s final five years, during which the singer largely disappeared from public view, was commissioned after his death in January 2016. (It premiered in the U.S. at the NYC Doc Film Festival in November.)

Consequently, “The Last Five Years” was an extraordinarily difficult film to make. Despite Bowie’s

Ben’s Favorites of 2017

2017 was a horrific year, but it was also a great year for horror cinema. 2016 gave us some instant classics, but I would argue that this year’s offerings were more diverse, fascinating, and forward-thinking. There were mainstream films—It, Annabelle: Creation, and Happy Death Day, to name a few—that I didn’t personally love, but their success has paved the way for more genre cinema overall. We’re finally seeing stories that reflect our times. I had the honor of witnessing this upsurge of conversation and success at Sitges’ 50th anniversary event, which was my cinematic and personal highlight of the year.

In terms of television, Twin Peaks: The Return has to go down in history as one of broadcasted horror’s best moments. Lynch dialed up the intensity and the surrealism in his new installment, and the result was stunning—not only spiritually terrifying, but beautiful and moving as well.

Luca Guadagnino responds to critics of his Suspiria remake

Filmmaker Luca Guadagnino is set to follow up his acclaimed coming-of-age romance Call Me By Your Name with a remake of Dario Argento’s classic 1970 horror Suspiria. Naturally, remaking such a revered film is bound to lead to criticism, and the director has acknowledged that in an interview with The Guardian, describing his take as a homage to the horror masterpiece, rather than a commercially-driven decision.

“Every movie I make is a step inside my teenage dreams, and Suspiria is the most remarkably precise teenage megalomaniac dream I could have had. I saw the poster when I was 11 and then I saw the film when I was 14, and it hit me hard. I immediately started to dream about making my own version of it. So in a way it makes me smile when I hear people say, ‘How dare you remake Suspiria. Typical commerce-driven mentality.’ I was just a boy

The Codes of Film Noir in Béla Tarr and Ágnes Hranitzky’s ‘The Man from London’

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

Upon the release of The Man from London, one might have been hard-pressed to consider Béla Tarr and his co-director Ágnes Hranitzky genre filmmakers beyond the broad designation of “European art house cinema.” While still fitting snugly

Check out our selections below and let us know your favorites in the comments.

35. Ahn Seo-Hyun (Okja)

A contender for the best ensemble of the year, Bong Joon-ho’s Okja features a can’t-believe-what-i’m-seeing hilarious Jake Gyllenhaal, another twintastic turn by Tilda Swinton, the cheekily liberal activist group made up of Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, and Lily Collins, and more.

The movie has already received backlash from fans who think it’s very unwise to touch Dario Argento’s 1977 classic of the same name. But while the basic plot will stay the same (a young American ballerina begins training at a German dance academy and uncovers its dark secrets), Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” is not intended to be a remake after all.

The sheer audacity of attempting to remake “Suspiria” is also what’s exciting about the project from stylish filmmaker Luca Guadagnino.

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs Poster Invites You Into the Pack
The absolutely dog-centric poster for Wes Anderson's upcoming stop-motion movie Isle of Dogs has landed. Wes Anderson has a style that is very much his own and he's not afraid to take some very bizarre, out-of-the-ordinary risks in his movies. Such is the case with his latest directorial effort, which features a bunch of A-list actors voicing dogs in a rather bizarre but hopefully delightful animated movie. Now, we have a new poster for Isle of Dogs, which really lives up to the promise of its name, as it is loaded down with lovable dogs.

Even if Wes Anderson's name wasn't featured on this poster, it would almost be unmistakably something with his signature style and quirk. The Isle of Dogs poser features the text for the movie's title, both in Japanese and English, right down the center, with the human boy Atari right below it. Nearly every other
