Finders Keepers review sundance

On Friday I screened the first great film of the 2015 Sundance film festival. Finders Keepers is a hilarious, bizarre and sometimes devastating documentary about the true life story of two men. Shannon Whisnant purchases a storage unit at auction and is surprised to find a severed human leg inside a used bbq grill. The other man, John Wood, wants his leg back, but Whisnant isn’t about to let that happen.

Read the rest of my Finders Keepers review and see a clip from the film, embedded after the jump.

Filmmaker Sean Baker (Four Letter Words, Take Out, Prince of Broadway, Starlet) premiered his new film Tangerine at the Library theater Friday at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. A Q&A followed the screening during which Baker revealed that the film was shot entirely using three iPhone 5S phones. (Update: Our original story said “almost entirely,” before the film’s team provided a correction.) The revelation got an audible gasp from the crowd who had just watched the movie. It’s not the that film looked amazing — it had a digital look to it for sure — it’s just that no one could tell that it was shot on iPhones.

Digging Through The Marrow Trailer

Last year at Buttnumathon, I saw an early screening of Horror filmmaker Adam Green‘s newest movie Digging Up The Marrow. The found footage documentary-style film puts the filmmaker Hatchet/Frozen director front in center in a story exploring a series of letters he supposedly received and the mysterious man behind them (played by Ray Wise) who believes to have proof that monsters are real. Most interestingly, the film incorporates the monster designs of artist Alex Pardee (who we’ve covered on the site many times in his past), bringing some of his demented creations to life on the big screen. The film is fun, albeit it feels a bit self self-aggrandizing for Green to make himself a character at the center of this story.

Green and Pardree just announced they will be brining the film on tour and have released the first Digging Out The Marrow trailer which you can watch embedded after the jump.

Star Wars Vs. DC/Marvel Trailer

Youtube user “Alex Luthor” has created a trailer imagining a movie where the Star Wars universe collides with the comic book galaxies of DC Comics and Marvel Studios. Emperor Palpatine and his Sith Apprentice Darth Vader have traveled galaxies to reach our planet (surely using a wormhole to travel into our “future” timeline). The superheroes of the DC and Marvel universe must team-up to protect our planet against the dark side. Watch the epic Star Wars Vs. DC Marvel trailer mash-up embedded after the jump.

Star Trek lens flares

Yes, complaining about lens flares in filmmaker JJ Abrams‘ films is just as cliche as you can get at this point. But someone pointed me to this video by editor Dylan Browne who attempted to get the answer to the question: How many lens flares are in JJ Abrams’ Star Trek movies, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness. The video shows every single lens flare in a fast-forward montage of both films. So how many lens flares are in JJ Abrams Star Trek movies? Find out how many Star Trek lens flares occur in both films, after the jump.
