the party's just beginning review

Karen Gillan is still a relatively unknown quantity in the U.S. After shooting to cult success in Doctor Who, Gillan muddled through a few obscure comedy roles before getting her big break as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy. But her prosthetic-covered, blue painted face has hindered her chance at widespread recognition, though her performance in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle may have finally earned her the attention she deserves — if people could see beyond the Rock’s pecs.

She deserved to shoot to stardom with the unfortunately titled 2014 TV series Selfie, in which Gillan played a vain, selfish, and damaged heroine addicted to the instant gratification of social media. She gave a stunning performance in a show that was seen by too few and that was gone too soon. But Gillan’s directorial debut, The Party’s Just Beginning, takes that damaged, troubled character and runs with it — spawning an intriguing heroine for a dark, oddball film that deals with the lasting damages of grief.

Firebase

Update: That was fast. After planning to crowdfund his new movie Firebase, director Neill Blomkamp has decided to nix the whole idea. Blomkamp took to Twitter to announce that the idea was dead after not raising enough funds.

I’m assuming Blomkamp will try something again, soon.

The original story follows below.

***

After a stint making movies the traditional way, Chappie director Neill Blomkamp wants to turn to crowdfunding to make his next film, Firebase. Blomkamp isn’t interested in offering a lot of perks, or using money frivolously. He just wants to put all the money up on the screen, and use it to generate even more money for even more features. Unfortunately, the demand just wasn’t there, and Blomkamp has given up on the idea.
