Mandy review

A primal, psychedelic rage-scream of a movie, Mandy takes a while to get going, but once it does, it delivers exactly what fans are hoping for: Nicolas Cage fully unleashing the beast within and absolutely wrecking people with a giant axe and a chainsaw. It’s just a shame it doesn’t get to the blood-soaked revenge much sooner. Read More »

Mandy will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in a few days, and it will bring with it a scene where Nicolas Cage fights someone with a chainsaw. At least, that’s what the very cool new Mandy poster hints at. The new film from Beyond the Black Rainbow director Panos Cosmatos stars Cage and Andrea Riseborough.

Black Mirror season 4 review

Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker’s dark, twisted, technology-driven Twilight Zone riff, is about return to Netflix for yet another season of woe and punishment. There’s a cold cosmic justice at work in Black Mirror; a sense that any transgression, no matter how mundane, will be met with the bleakest of punishments. It can often make for an unpleasant experience. Yet Black Mirror explored exciting new possibilities last season, with the acclaimed San Junipero – an episode that revealed that hopefulness was also a possibility in the Black Mirror universe. Best of all, it was an episode that wasn’t obsessed with conveying a twisted moral – it simply used the Black Mirror premise to tell a story about two characters and the results were stunning.

Black Mirror season 4, sadly, does not have an episode that resonates as much as San Junipero did last season. The show once again continues down a dark, unrelenting path – which is to be expected, since that was the built-in methodology long before San Junipero came along. But how does Black Mirror season 4 stack up as a whole? The good news is that the latest season of Black Mirror goes off into new, unexpected directions and has fun playing around with style and form. The six episodes that occupy the latest season all vary in plot, tone, and message, which is a welcome change compared to previous seasons, which had a tendency to blur together.

How much worse can things get for the Rayburn family? Based on the footage for the next season of Bloodline, apparently much, much worse, which is saying a lot, considering what these characters experienced in season 1. What the Rayburn family did last year isn’t going to go away quietly. In season 2, they’re going to have to face the decisions they’ve made.

Oblivion hi-res 4

The Matrix. 2001: A Space Odyssey. Independence Day. Star Wars. Wall-E. If you know and like those movies (and at least one more we won’t mention to avoid spoiling anything) you’re going to find Joseph Kosinski‘s Oblivion incredibly familiar. The filmmaker’s second film directly references and was indirectly influenced by a plethora of classic films, giving his “original” story a not-so-original feel. It’s almost as if Kosinski’s love of sci-fi was so big, he simply had to stuff it all into one big movie.

Yet even with those influences bursting from its seams, Oblivion is a delight. It is a gorgeous, exciting and satisfying film filled with beautiful visuals, eye-popping action and confident storytelling.

Did you know that the Internet can be a dangerous place? That’s more or less the premise of Henry-Alex Rubin‘s Disconnect, a Crash-style ensemble drama about the perils of the digital age.

That message comes about two decades late, and the execution looks about as subtle as a pornographic pop-up ad. But on the bright side, you could do much worse for casting than Jason Bateman, Hope Davis, Frank Grillo, Michael Nyqvist, Paula Patton, Andrea Riseborough, Alexander Skarsgard, Max Thieriot, and Colin Ford. Watch the first trailer and check out the new poster after the jump.
