Turbo Kid review

Turbo Kid is insane. It’s remarkable that a film like this was produced at all. Imagine what a movie might look like if it came from the mind of a ten-year old kid from the ’80s who is obsessed with Mega Man, and who just saw the Mad Max movies for the first time. Take a step further, and picture the film, if it was produced by a competent team of filmmakers with a budget affording that kid access to a good team to create practice special effects and makeup.

Of course, Turbo Kid wasn’t brought into the world under those circumstances, but it certainly feels like it — and that is the highest compliment I can give this movie. Read our Turbo Kid review after the jump.

SXSW Midnight Features and Short Programs Announced

The film program at South By Southwest (SXSW) has really come into its own over the past few years — SXSW is becoming an impressive little film fest in addition to being a massive music party. The lineups for Midnight features and shorts have been announced, and there are some good premieres in there. Attack the Block, from Joe Cornish, will have a world premiere, while Hobo With a Shotgun and James Wan‘s Insidious will show up as well. And the films that most of us haven’t heard of sound pretty great, too. If I was at the fest I’d have my ass planted in a seat for every one of these at midnight. Screw the parties — the crazy genre films are the way to go.

The fill list of features is after the break. The shorts program is massive, and you can find it at the SXSW website. Read More »
