Review: ‘Flatliners’ Is an Agonizingly Boring Remake of a Movie About the Dangers of Bringing Things Back from the Dead

Review: ‘Flatliners’ Is an Agonizingly Boring Remake of a Movie About the Dangers of Bringing Things Back from the Dead
If only its irony were the most painful thing about “Flatliners,” an artless and agonizingly boring remake of a semi-forgotten movie about the dangers of bringing things back from the dead. Lazily recycling the ’90s schlocky Joel Schumacher thriller of the same name (once a staple of video store shelves everywhere), this lifeless new version hits all the same beats as the original, but does so without a speck of the baroque style that made it such a fun thing to rent on a Friday night. At a time when making a movie — any movie — can feel like experimenting with life after death, there’s really no reason to belabor the point.

The story begins in the present day, nine years after Courtney (Ellen Page) accidentally killed her little sister in a car crash. Now an exhausted med student at a prestigious teaching hospital that seems to accept people based

John Ostrander: Calling Dr. Howard, Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard!

  • Comicmix
Gah!

Since the last time we were together discussing things of great (or minor) import to the universe, I’ve been to the E.R. twice. Yep, no half way measures for this kid – you gonna screw things up, screw things up big time!

Well, actually, I didn’t do it. It was done to me.

It started a week ago last Saturday. I got up to go to the bathroom at 6:30 Am (normal) and things were fine. I got up again to go at 8:30 Am and I couldn’t get out of bed. My balance was completely shot. My equilibrium was gone. Vertigo is not just a name of a DC imprint. I had written Count Vertigo in Suicide Squad many years ago and it seemed he had caught up with me and was exacting revenge for any and all trials I had put him through.

For me,

Shooter Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Exfil

  • TVfanatic
They picked the wrong patsy!

Bob Lee Swagger is not to be trifled with and he finally got to show off a bit of his skills on Shooter Season 1 Episode 2. Badass Bob Lee Swagger is not going down without a fight, and if he has to take a few people out and expose others, he's going to do it.

The ball finally got rolling in the second installment of the series, once the pilotitis was out out of the way. It even gave us some of the very much appreciated action that I was desperately craving. 

Let's get to it! 

Dr. Foreman got under my skin, back when I was watching House M.D. but I have never found myself disliking Omar Epps on sight, the way I disliked him during this hour of television. It speaks to how great he is, that he has made me hate Isaac so passionately just two episodes in!

Marvel’s Doctor Strange reminds us that even the most surreal and unrelateable of circumstances can result in a blockbuster hit. Imagine giving superpowers to Dr. House from House. That’s the movie.

5 Actors for Young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Matt Spencer-Skeen suggests five actors for the role of young Dumbledore in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them out next week news and rumours have been ratcheting up around the sequel, with Johnny Depp rumoured to be playing Gellert Grindelwald and David Yates confirming Dumbledore’s return in the sequel. This gives us an ideal opportunity to recklessly speculate who could play the younger Dumbledore around 1926.

First things to point out of course, that while younger we aren’t talking a teenage Dumbledore here. J.K. Rowling has confirmed he was born in 1881 which would make him around mid-forties at the time of the film taking place. The actor would need to therefore be in a similar age range, with Hollywood’s penchant for ignoring actual age I reckon any actor late 30’s into mid 50’s has a shot. My guess is

Eight Observations About The Doctor Strange Film (Spoilers)

  • Cinelinx
Marvel’s latest super hero film Doctor Strange opened in the Us today. It’s a very good movie with a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, although it’s not without flaws. Here are eight observations from a long-time fan, so beware of spoilers.

I’ve been a fan of Doctor Strange ever since I read my first issue of The Defenders in 1972. I remember watching the first Doctor Strange movie in 1978 with Peter Hooten as the sorcerer supreme. That one was disappointing but the new one delivers the goods. Here are some of the takeaways from watching the new Doctor Strange film.

(Spoilers!)

1. The climax of this film is very different from other comic book movies we’ve seen because the hero saves the day by outwitting his enemy instead of outfighting him. Strange knows he has no chance in battle against Dormammu but he nevertheless wins through a clever,

Hugh Laurie Thought ‘House’ Role ‘Disqualified’ Him From Starring in Hulu’s ‘Chance’

Hugh Laurie Thought ‘House’ Role ‘Disqualified’ Him From Starring in Hulu’s ‘Chance’
When Hugh Laurie was first offered the part of Dr. Eldon Chance he thought oh no, not again. After playing the iconic, misanthropic Dr. House on “House” for eight seasons, Laurie said he believed his previous role “disqualified” him from the role.

“But that didn’t last very long because the world of it, the tone of it, the character is so different that I actually put that aside,” Laurie told Variety at the premiere for “Chance” at the Harmony Gold theater on Monday night.

Laurie was joined on the black carpet by several of his co-stars as they posed for photos and greeted each other enthusiastically.

“I’m so sorry to interrupt, I had to do that, we can’t just go down (the carpet) without saying hello,” Laurie said about his co-star, Gretchen Mol, mid-interview apologetically after kissing her on the cheek.

Mol’s character on the show is Jaclyn Blackstone, a

Hugh Laurie on Playing Doctor Again in Chance, Envying George Clooney's ER Recall and Returning to Veep

Hugh Laurie on Playing Doctor Again in Chance, Envying George Clooney's ER Recall and Returning to Veep
This week, Hugh Laurie returns to television in an hour-long drama series that centers on a tormented doctor whose one-syllable last name also happens to be the title of the show.

And that’s pretty much where the House parallels begin and end.

In the noir-ish thriller Chance, which debuts Wednesday on Hulu, the actor best known as Dr. Gregory House plays Dr. Eldon Chance, a mild-mannered(!) and compassionate(!!) neuropsychiatrist who gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness while grappling with his own existential crisis.

In the following Q&A, Laurie praisaes Chance‘s quiet,

2016 Emmy Predictions: Variety’s TV Critics Make Their Picks
With the Emmy awards imminent, our TV critics have strong opinions about who should take home the top prizes. Naturally, they don’t always agree. The question is: will voters agree with Team Ryan or Team Saraiya? (Play along with them: Our full list of nominees is here.)

Outstanding Comedy Series

Sonia Saraiya: It was such a great year for comedy — I’d happily give it to any of the nominees (except “Modern Family,” because come on). But even against the fellow sophomore seasons of “Transparent” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” both of which made me sob, “Black-ish” has an energy and appeal that so deserves recognition.

Maureen Ryan: You’ll get no argument from me. “Black-ish” solidified its status as one of TV’s funniest, most nimble and best-acted comedies in its second season. You’re absolutely right that this is a tough category: “Kimmy Schmidt,” “Transparent” and “Silicon Valley” all improved on their solid first seasons

The International Project Discovery Forum is the industry program of Los Angeles Greek Film Festival

The International Project Discovery Forum is a Los Angeles pioneer in the promotion of international independent film development and co­production. Utilizing the innumerable resources that exist in Los Angeles, the festival aims to create a bridge between two very different worlds – the American Independent Film and the Greek/Balkan Independent Film.

They look for films that have an original approach, made by independent producers and filmmakers that have a unique voice. The stage of development of the selected projects varies from inspiring and promising scripts in an early stage, which they want to nurture through their journey, to more advanced projects in the financing stage that they connect with producers, distributors, sales agents and programmers that can actively support the film. The festival wants to create a circle of collaborators who share the same vision – a network of creative professionals from Greece, the Balkans and the Us that share the same idea of how they want to make films.

Besides their open call for entries, they look for projects in other industry forums in the Balkan region such as Thessaloniki Iff’s Crossroads, Sofia Meetings, Mfi Script Workshop.

The Forum includes a development lab only for Ipdf selected Filmmakers and a series of roundtables that are free and open to the public.

The goal is not only to promote Greek and Balkan filmmakers by helping strong, local stories with international appeal get told, but they also want to create an occasion for a true and lively exchange between European and American cinema. The forum provide a venue where dialogue is encouraged and creative collaborations are formed

Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 3 Preview: Photos + Reckless Speculation Edition

“Do you think those dragons like me? Or were they just using me?”A quick preview of the next Game of Thrones episode, complete with photos and some Maester-like speculation work.

After last Sunday night’s episode, “Home,” Game of Thrones fans are flying high. For many, it’s because we were all right about that thing. For others, it’s the sheer joy of a season that is delivering a lot of payoff.

For more on that episode, read my weekly Game of Thrones Explained column.

We can now turn our attention to the next episode, “Oathbreaker,” which is written by showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff.

TV Review – The Night Manager

The Night Manager

Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Debicki, Olivia Colman, Tom Hollander, David Harewood and Hugh Laurie.

Synopsis:

Night manager of a wealthy hotel in Cairo, charming ex-Special Forces veteran Jonathan Pine is unable to prevent the murder of a woman connected to the secret arms dealings of British philanthropist Richard Roper, a man Pine swears to bring down…

Have you ever wondered what a small-screen adaptation of Ian Fleming’s James Bond may look like? If the answer is yes, then look no further than The Night Manager, because it might well be as close as the BBC have ever got.

Adapted from the 1993 novel by the grand master of spy fiction, John le Carre, The Night Manager–which begins on AMC in the Us next Tuesday the 19th–very quickly expands beyond the rather bland title. That’s very much the point, almost a misdirection from le Carre,

The Night Manager Cost How Much?!?!

Daniel J. Harris on The Night Manager

Sunday night sees the final instalment of the six-part BBC serial, The Night Manager, hit our screens. Starring Hollywood’s very own Tom Hiddleston in a return to British TV the adaption of John Le Carre’s novel costs an estimated £3 million plus per episode! Where on earth did that money go?

As with anything big budget production looking to make a splash – casting is key! Tom Hiddleston has had a great run in Hollywood over the last 5 years since winning the BAFTA Rising Star Award in 2011. With his roles as Loki in the various Thor or Avengers films and other notable outings he brings an audience and no doubt commands a high fee. There’s nothing wrong with that – he’s worked hard to build his reputation and to get his fee to a good number. It’s great to see him starring in a BBC drama.
