Come to Daddy Clip - Elijah Wood

If it seems like you haven’t seen Elijah Wood much over the past decade, that’s because he’s mostly been keeping busy offscreen. In addition to doing voiceover work for animated projects like TRON Uprising, Over the Garden Wall and Star Wars Resistance, he’s been working tirelessly as a producer. You may have also seen him popping up occasionally in more low-key thrillers, comedies and horror movies in the indie world. And another one of them arrives this weekend.

Come to Daddy finds Elijah Wood playing a timid, privileged hipster-type who is looking to reconnect with his estranged father (Stephen McHattie) after receiving a letter inviting him for a visit in his father’s remote cabin home. However, upon his arrival, the welcome he receives is less than warm, and he starts to wonder exactly why he’s there to begin with. /Film has an exclusive Come to Daddy clip you can watch below, which features Wood feeling rather uncomfortable while his father doesn’t seem to care.

The original Nightmare on Elm Street series has long since ended, giving way to an absolutely abysmal remake. What does the future hold for Freddy Krueger?

Lord of the Rings Reunion Photo

This past December marked the 15th anniversary of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first chapter in one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. Since that’s not exactly a celebratory, milestone anniversary, there wasn’t much pomp and circumstance. But a little over a month later, a mini-reunion of some of the members of the fellowship has taken place.

In what appears to be an impromptu reunion, Aragon (Viggo Mortensen), Frodo (Elijah Wood), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) all got together for a meal, and they took some time to snap a few pictures of the occasion as well. Check out the Lord of the Rings reunion photo after the jump. Read More »

I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore Review - Melanie Lynskey

Director Jeremy Saulnier has delivered chills, thrills and blood spills at the Sundance Film Festival before. His film, Blue Ruin, featured the relatively unknown actor Macon Blair setting out to track down the people who killed his parents and deliver his vengeance upon them. It appears some of Jeremy Saulnier’s filmmaking style has rubbed off on his leading man as Blair has returned to Sundance, this time as the writer and director of own twisted tale of revenge.

I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore (which honestly needs a new title) stars the endlessly charming Melanie Lynskey (Up in the Air, Win Win) as Ruth, a woman who is fed up with people being assholes. It’s that simple. One day, she comes home to find that her house has been broken into, with the thieves having stolen her laptop, a set of silver she inherited from her grandmother, and some prescription medication for depression and anxiety. When it becomes clear that the police are basically doing nothing to help her, she decides to take matters into her own hands.
