blair witch review

This was the perfect way to introduce Blair Witch to the world. The series is rooted in clever marketing, as the original film was positioned as real found footage of real film students who disappeared. The sequel twisted the concept to focus on the Blair Witch hype more than the legend itself. Now they’ve made the third film, 16 years later, a true surprise. Lionsgate committed to early marketing of the film as The Woods so that the first audience to see it could learn it was actually Blair Witch. No one else will get quite that experience, as it would be impossible to keep the secret once it began screening, but this way all the fans could be in on the reveal, even if they only followed it online.  Read More »

moana love interest

The original Disney princess characters were crafted in a traditional fairy tale mold. They were damsels in distress, beautiful young women who are terrorized by villains for 90 minutes before getting rescued by a bland but resourceful hero. That has started to slowly change over the years, but even tougher-than-usual Disney heroines like Jasmine still needed an Aladdin to rescue them from certain doom.

If recent Disney animated movies have started to bend the princess mold, it certainly sounds like Moana is going to try to shatter it. Directors John Musker and Ron Clements, who previously helmed The Little Mermaid and The Princess and Frog, have revealed that that the titular princess in their movie won’t have a love interest at all.

hands of stone trailer

Few sports are as inherently cinematic as boxing. Whether you care for it or not, two men entering a ring armed only with their strength, their speed, and their raw determination is just plain dramatic. It’s a game of stunning comebacks and upsets. It’s a world of dizzying highs and painful lows. Boxing stories, whether they’re based on truth or constructed for the screen, make for good movies.

Hands of Stone is based on one of those “too weird to be anything but true” sports stories, telling the story of Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran, who famously fought Sugar Ray Leonard twice in 1980 with, well, peculiar results. The trailer for director Jonathan Jakubowicz‘s film is edited to make this look like a more traditional story, but if he follows the facts, there’s going to be a lot more going on here.
