atomic blonde review

Note: This review originally ran following the world premiere of Atomic Blonde at the SXSW Film Festival. It is in theaters today.

In a nutshell: Atomic Blonde is about a badass, bisexual British secret agent who fights like John Wick and seduces like James Bond who travels to Germany days before the fall of the Berlin Wall to recover some stolen intelligence. She wears a number of amazing outfits, kills a whole bunch of bad guys, and just looks terrific as she struts through noisy nightclubs and desolate alleyways to a soundtrack of ’80s synth pop. It is excellent, two-fisted entertainment and further proof that Charlize Theron is one of our great modern action heroes.

In a smaller nutshell: Atomic Blonde is one of the most purely entertaining action movies coming out this year.

Patty Jenkins Directing Wonder Woman 2

Wonder Woman has made leaps and bounds at the box office and with the critics, but the Patty Jenkins-helmed superhero movie is looking to make the leap over yet another Hollywood establishment: the Academy Awards.

Warner Bros. is reportedly planning to launch a “groundbreaking” Oscar campaign for the female-led superhero movie for both the Best Picture and Best Director categories. If the studio succeeds, it would make Wonder Woman the first comic book movie ever nominated for Best Picture, and Jenkins the first woman to be nominated for Best Director since Kathryn Bigelow became the first female director to win for The Hurt Locker in 2010.

Mark Chilcott Ride On

If you’re in the market for some cool prints that pay tribute to some of the most iconic vehicles in film and television, then artist Mark Chilcott has an exhibition that you’ll want to seek out this weekend.

In an art show called Ride On!, artist Mark Chilcott has applied a style reminiscent of Scott C.’s water color showdowns and applied it to vehicles like the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, the Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters and the lightcycle from TRON. But thankfully he’s also hit some lesser celebrated but no less beloved modes of transportation like Buzz Lightyear’s spaceship  from Toy Story, The Munsters family car, Uncle Rico’s van from Napoleon Dynamite and even the ant named Anthony from Ant-Man.

Check out the Mark Chilcott Ride On artwork below and find out how you can get some of them. Read More »

david ayer still involved with gotham city sirens

Spurred on by the success of Wonder Woman, the DC Extended Universe is in the midst of a full-blown creative pivot. But David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, like Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is a remnant of the earlier era, in which dark and gritty reigned supreme.

Now Ayer, who has been attached to direct the upcoming Harley Quinn-centric film Gotham City Sirens, is facing rumors that he might fall the way of DC’s grimdark tone. But the director has recently stepped forward to say that those rumors aren’t true.
