Cinepocalypse 2017 Review: Psychopaths is Mickey Keating’s Most Ambitious Film Yet

  • DailyDead
At the age of just 26 or 27, writer/director Mickey Keating already has five feature films under his belt. These aren’t just homemade backyard projects shot with his buddies for $200, either; these are movies with major stars of the indie horror scene (Graham Skipper, Lauren Ashley Carter, Pat Healy, Larry Fu**ing Fessenden) and getting actual distribution through companies like Glass Eye Pix and IFC Midnight. While his previous films have shown major chops behind the camera, they’ve also all had an air of familiarity about them; Keating is a director who wears his influences proudly, and some of his past work has played more like him riffing on an existing piece than like something borne of his own interests and obsessions.

With his fifth feature, Psychopaths, Keating has really come into his own as a director. It is his most original, most ambitious, most audacious work to date

Blu-ray Review: The Otherworld (2013)

  • DailyDead
Richard Stanley has always marched to the beat of a unique drum. He hasn’t made very many narrative films (Hardware, Dust Devil) since arriving at the turn of the ’90s, but he has always fascinated due to his quirky spirit and dedication to the odd and unusual. And so it goes that his documentary The Otherworld (2013) follows a path true to his nature, but is shot with a touching sense of humanity in its look at strange phenomena and the people who embrace it.

The Otherworld is Stanley’s journey to an area of southern France he dubs “The Zone”; a place that holds many mysteries, especially to the folks that inhabit the land tucked away in the Pyrenees Mountains. Montsegur, Bugarach, and especially Rennes-Le-Chateau are regions and townships filled with fascinating characters and mystique necessary to elevate the material beyond a gorgeous travelogue, which it most definitely is as well.

Fear The Walking Dead season 3 episodes 15 & 16 review: Things Bad Begun & Sleigh Ride

David S.E. Zapanta Oct 16, 2017

Fear The Walking Dead wraps up its tumultuous third season with an explosive finale. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.15 Things Bad Begun & 3.16 Sleigh Ride

As Fear The Walking Dead’s third season draws to a close with much sound and fury, I can’t help but wonder what it all signifies. This season saw the rise and inevitable fall of Broke Jaw Ranch, and also saw inevitable destruction of the dam. We witnessed many, many deaths, most notably Travis, Ofelia, and the entire Otto family. And yet, despite all of this death and destruction, the Clark family somehow stayed intact. This isn’t to say they never found themselves in harm’s way, because just the opposite is true.

Doctor Foster recap: series two, episode four – holy wow! How awful

Gemma and Simon will stop at nothing until they’ve ruined each other’s lives. It’s hell for them – but a delight for us to watch. The big question now is: who will die in the finale?

How many of you got to almost the end of this episode wondering if you’d made a mistake about it being part four of five because everything seemed so perfectly resolved? Holy wow.

In the Doctor Foster universe a character’s life trajectory can flip from “happily married” to “moving to France” in the time it takes to say, “Où est mon passeport?” And so it goes that Simple Simon finally falls prey to the karma that’s been awaiting him since episode one, season one. As he watches, wretchedly, the departure of his beautiful wife and child for ever, he finally crumbles. But Doctor Foster can’t end on a clean break; no,

Video of the Week: Liam Gallagher - "For What It's Worth"

Some music acts deserve our full attention because of the legacy that spawned them. And so it goes that former Oasis lead vocalist Liam Gallagher delivers his much anticipated solo long player As You Were (Warner Brothers) on October 6th followed by short tour in selecti cities in North America in November. The songs -- "For What It's Worth," "Chinatown," and "Wall of Glass" (12 million streams!) -- are deservedly getting fantastic press from journalists and public alike. When the Manchaster-based anthem rock band disbanded, the Brothers Gallagher seemed destined for the scrap heap. Could the parts equal the power of the collective? Well, yes and no. Neither brother has released a solo album to rival either Definitely Maybe or (What's The Story) Morning Glory?. I certainly prefer Liam's sneering vocals over Noel's comfortable vocals and Noel's songwriting chops over his younger brother's tunes. Yes, together they were a force of nature.

DVD Review – Security (2017)

Security, 2017.

Directed by Alain Desrochers.

Starring Antonio Banderas, Ben Kingsley, Liam McIntyre, Chad Lindberg, Katherine de la Rocha, and Gabriella Wright.

Synopsis:

A shopping mall security guard has to protect a female trial witness from a psychopathic criminal and his gang of soldiers looking to stop her testifying against them.

And so the run of direct-to-dvd action movies starring **ahem** older action movie actors continues with Security, a film that stars Antonio Banderas (Desperado/The Expendables 3) and could be neatly summed up as ‘Die Hard in a shopping mall’ and left at that. However, the whole ‘Die Hard in a…’ thing was done with a long time ago and these days not even the Die Hard franchise itself can claim to be anything like those halcyon days of likeable everyday characters taking extraordinary measures to stop the bad guys, so why not delve back into that mindset of late

10 Moments That Prove Jerry Maguire Is Tom Cruise’s Best Performance

10 Moments That Prove Jerry Maguire Is Tom Cruise’s Best Performance
The idea of “movie stars” has been on life support since the turn of the 21st Century — we live in a world where brands and intellectual property have become more important than people — but Hollywood as we know it will continue to hang on by a thread for as long as one man keeps running for its life. Tom Cruise isn’t just one of the greatest movie stars in the history of the medium, he might just be the last (depending on how Leonardo DiCaprio wants to play middle age). His face is known all over the world. His name is synonymous with big-screen entertainment. His incredible career has spanned more than 35 years, 45 roles, and hundreds upon hundreds of wild tabloid headlines. He’s been a Vietnam vet, a super-spy, a misogynistic self-help guru, a different super-spy, a samurai, a contract killer, another super-spy, a handsy bartender, a horny Chicago teenager,

Drive-In Dust Offs: Eaten Alive (1976)

  • DailyDead
For me, the most interesting thing about horror maestro Tobe Hooper’s storied career is he takes chances. He always swings big; from his landmark second feature The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), to Lifeforce (1985), to even The Mangler (1995), he pushes the genre into the absurd through concept and execution, audiences be damned. It’s an admirable trait in a filmmaker, and one that’s on full display with Eaten Alive (1976), probably his most bizarre film to date. (Which is saying a lot.)

After a limited stateside release in October of ’76, EA was given a wide release in May of ’77 by Virgo International Pictures to theatres and drive-ins across the land. The start of the ever undulating arc of Hooper’s career, it was met with a resounding “Whaaaat?” by the public and critics alike. This was not the follow up to the cultural explosion that was Chainsaw people were expecting. And to be honest,

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom star in trailer for Unlocked

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Zehra Phelan

Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom enter the world of high octane violence movies with the brand new trailer for Unlocked, an action thriller centred on Rapace, terrorists and Bloom, who, from what we can gather, just tags along for the ride.

Related: Noomi Rapace Interview on The Drop

The trailer for Unlocked, has no thrills, airs or graces and quite frankly looks like a run of the mill action film with a badass female having to save the day all the whilst fighting off highly trained men in an effort to get the terrorist back to London? We’ve all seen Rapace in full blown action, Orlando Bloom – in a role that isn’t at all clear – just seems to have wanted to associate his name with an action film, maybe to get it back on track? Who knows but the proof will be in the pudding as they say.

Armond White Says ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ Is Better Than ‘La La Land’ Plus More Cinematic Hot Takes

  • The Playlist
It’s January, which means Armond White is here for his annual bit for momentary, contrarian relevancy before he disappears for the rest of the year. The cranky critic has long stood proudly outside of the critical consensus; essentially, whatever most people like, he’ll hate. And so it goes for 2016, and at National Review, he once again unleashes his yearly better-than list, which offers a string of hot takes which are simultaneously hilarious and eye-rolling.

Paolo Sorrentino Scraps Silvio Berlusconi Film ‘Loro’

Sometimes, you don’t get what you want in the movie world. Best laid plans don’t always work out, and the alchemy of moviemaking occasionally goes up in smoke. And so it goes for Paolo Sorrentino.

Just a couple of months after announcing he was developing a movie titled “Loro” about controversial former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, the director has revealed it’s been scrapped.

Watch: Alison Pill Desires the Perfect Body in Nsfw Exclusive Clip From ‘Zoom’

Telling a story within a story within a story, the sci-fi comedy Zoom concerns a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director who all have a hand in telling the story of the others life, despite living in different dimensions. Starring Allison Pill, Gael García Bernal, and Tyler Labine, today we have an exclusive clip from the feature, which is Nsfw (if you glance at the wallpaper).

The sophomore feature from Pedro Morelli, off a script penned by first-time screenwriter Matt Hensen, this exclusive clip introduces Pill’s character, a comic book artist who is dreaming of the perfect body, and we can see some satirical elements come into play as she meets to discuss cosmetic surgery. Check out the clip below for the film now in limited release and available on VOD.

Zoom Review

One of the problems that comes from being a hardcore fan of films is that most of your time is spent trying to enjoy your passion despite the shackles of a medium that is plagued with repetition and paint-by-numbers efforts. If you see more than a dozen movies a year, it isn’t long before you’re trapped in the tedium of not simply knowing that the good guys are probably going to win, but who is going to turn out to be the double-crosser as soon as you see them, why and when the rom-com couple are going to have their second act “distancing” they have to overcome, and on and on.

This is why certain writers and directors can get a jump on popularity just off the back of putting something out that makes you sit up and notice that you have no idea what’s going to happen.

Alison Pill Erases Line Between Fact And Fantasy In First Trailer For Zoom

Indulging in a daydream or letting your imagination run amok is something we can all relate to on a fairly intimate level – but what if those thoughts sprung into life, effectively blurring the line between fact and fantasy?

That’s a question posed by Zoom, Pedro Morelli’s imminent feature that’s pitched as a “fast-paced, pop-art inspired, multi-plot contemporary comedy.” That’s quite the mouthful, but nevertheless, Morelli’s metafictional romp has garnered praise following its run on the festival circuit, including last year’s Tiff.

Now closing in on a theatrical release, today brings forth Zoom‘s zany first trailer, introducing viewers to Alison Pill’s novelist and budding comic book artist who has unknowingly created a sentient character in Edward, and already we’re beginning to sense a refreshing mix of drama and heartfelt comedy based on the above teaser.

Alison Pill Creates Gael García Bernal in First Trailer For ‘Zoom’

What if your imagination came to life? It’s the base question at the source of many sci-fi films, and most recently, the Alison Pill-led Zoom, which has received its first trailer. The story concerns a comic book artist, a novelist, and a film director who all have a hand in telling the story of the others life, despite living in different dimensions. Combining some vivid, interesting animation — to liberate the comic reality created by Pill — along with live action, the film looks to be an interesting blend of heady drama and light comedy.

Zoom is the sophomore feature from Pedro Morelli, off a script penned by first time screenwriter Matt Hensen. See the trailer below ahead of a release next month, along with a poster for the film that also stars Gael García Bernal and Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil‘s Tyler Labine.

'Silicon Valley' Interview: How Editors Cut the Pied Piper Gang of Cut-Ups (Emmy Watch)

'Silicon Valley' Interview: How Editors Cut the Pied Piper Gang of Cut-Ups (Emmy Watch)
Hapless Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch) has finally regained CEO status, but he's still struggling to wrestle control of his startup, Pied Piper. And so it goes on "Silicon Valley." Just when you think Richard and the gang are headed off a cliff, they not only avert disaster but also make progress. The trick for editors Brian Merken and Tim Roche is advancing the plot while being funny. "For me, the story really starts to take shape for the Pied Piper team," said Merden, who edits the even-numbered episodes. "My biggest challenge for the first half of the season was keeping it in that place, in that tone, in that world that is 'Silicon Valley,' even though the entire environment has changed." Indeed, the series has moved beyond its underdog emphasis to tackle corporate ambition, selling out and bro loyalty amid the larger Silicon Valley ethos. Richard fights to
