Rambo: Last Blood Trailer

Sylvester Stallone never wanted the fight that was brought to him as veteran John Rambo in the 1982 film First Blood. But when it comes to Rambo: Last Blood, he’s out for vengeance, and he has no problem finishing a fight that he once again didn’t start, especially when a surrogate family member gets taken by some dangerous men.

A new Rambo: Last Blood trailer has arrived, and it calls back to that first incident in the small town Hope, Washington (as well as the other sequels). We see footage from the first movie cross cut with what appears to be Rambo’s last mission. Will he survive this last face-off, or will he get a send-off in the same way that Wolverine did in Logan?

The Fantastic Fest 2019 second wave is here – and it does not disappoint. If the first wave announcement didn’t do it for you (what’s your deal?), this second one should do the trick.

apocalypse now final cut

As a kid, I was obsessed with helicopters. There was no real reason why, save for the fact that they seemed more magical than planes. Helicopters seem so implausible, like they shouldn’t work, some sort of mechanical beast that defied nature’s rules. The fundamentally feel out of context when you see them in the sky, and with the smallest interference to their aerodynamic components, catastrophe strikes. I liked shows like Airwolf about a fancy flying machine, or even the forgotten Clint Eastwood film Firefox, and on M.A.S.H. you’d see them every week with their giant, dragonfly glass bubbles flying over the canyons of California meant to evoke the Korean conflict.

There is no war more associated with the helicopter than Vietnam, and no better metaphor for America’s involvement than the technical might of the whirlybird that embodies all the achievements and progress and horrors of “modern” civilization, a fragile dominance that rests on thin, spinning blades. Similarly, there’s no better cinematic representation of these birds than Apocalypse Now, a film that barely stays in flight, whipping and spinning around, yet managing, implausibly, to be one of the greatest artistic achievements of all time.

the terror All the Demons Are Still in Hell review

If I could offer one piece of advice to The Terror: Infamy it would be this: slow down. The second episode of the latest season of AMC’s spooky – and now disturbingly timely – anthology series moves at a mad dash. I’m not talking pacing, either. Rather, episode 2 – “All the Demons Are Still in Hell” – constantly feels as if it’s in a rush, bustling its characters from one location and plot point to the next. Perhaps this is meant to reflect the mental state of the characters, who are being kicked out of their homes and shuffled from one location to another. But as a result, the show is not letting its viewers have enough time to digest what they’re being fed.

The Difference Between Camera Lenses

Every single shot you see in a motion pictures is methodically planned. Each shot serves a purpose, and exactly how that shot is captured with a camera is meant to evoke a certain feeling, look, or style. One element of photography that can drastically change how a shot is captured is what lens is being used on the camera. But do you understand how it all works?

It’s easy to see with your own eyes how a shot looks different from one to the next, but you may not know how a certain shot was achieved if you don’t understand how camera lenses work. Thankfully, cinematographer Newton Thomas Sigel (Drive, The Usual Suspects, X-Men, Three Kings) sat down to explain how three different camera lenses work, and what the shots captured them convey when taken into consideration with image composition, lighting and camera movement. Learn about the difference between camera lenses in movies below. Read More »
