I Am Legend Movie Review

Friday, December 14th, 2007



I Am Legend starring Will Smith arrive in theaters, December 12th and the review isn’t bad. Read on:

Will Smith stars as a man who appears to be the sole survivor of a viral outbreak that turned the human race into vampires. Now alone in New York City, he must concoct a cure before humanity becomes extinct. Great visuals lend new wrinkles to an old story, and Smith ensures the many slow moments remain emotionally compelling despite some lacklustre direction from Francis Lawrence.

We’ve seen Armageddon before, but nothing quite like this. A post-apocalyptic adventure that leaves all those massive, computer-generated scenes of falling buildings and devastation behind, I Am Legend doesn’t merely focus on the end of civilization — it takes us on an existentialist quest to rediscover what it means to be human before our species expires.

Watch the First Ten Minutes of Walk Hard

Monday, December 10th, 2007


t_5404.jpg

Joe Apatow has already (The Forty Year Old Virgin) brought us two of the most hilarious comedies of 2007 (Knocked Up and Superbad). Well he’s set to do it again with his latest upcoming release Walk Hard: The Dewy Cox Story (December 21, 2007).

Synopsis:
America loves Cox! But behind the music is the up-and-down-and-up-again story of a musician whose songs would change a nation. On his rock ‘n roll spiral, Cox sleeps with 411 women, marries three times, has 22 kids and 14 stepkids, stars in his own 70s TV show, collects friends ranging from Elvis to the Beatles to a chimp, and gets addicted to — and then kicks — every drug known to man… but despite it all, Cox grows into a national icon and eventually earns the love of a good woman — longtime backup singer Darlene (Jenna Fischer).

Interview With Christopher Nolan

Friday, December 7th, 2007


dark-knight-logo-blog.jpg

The folks over at IGN attended a special screening and reception on Wednesday for the Imax prologue of the Dark Knight. The prologue is set to debut during the Imax release of I Am Legend on December 14th.

IGN was able to get an exclusive interview with Christopher Nolan at a cocktail reception following the screening:

IGN: How many IMAX sequences will be included in The Dark Knight in addition to the Joker’s introduction?

Christopher Nolan: I think there will be four or five in the finished film. I’ve only just started editing the feature so it is as yet uncertain. As we shot we intended to shoot four, but we enjoyed it so much and we were loving the results so much as we were watching dailies. We were sitting there on the stage in Chicago watching dailies on an eight-story screen. It’s a pretty incredible thing. So we started throwing the cameras [in] a little bit more and more, so it will be a little more in the film than that but primarily they’re the big action beats.

IGN: What was your criteria for selecting the scenes to be shot in IMAX?

Nolan: Well, I started with the big action beats, but we actually started shooting some of the quieter moments as well [in IMAX]. Yeah, the pictorially interesting, quieter, montage kind of moments. We thought we’d try that. It’s just a beautiful way — it’s just the best, most extraordinary image there is in motion pictures so it’s kind of addictive. You start wanting to use it more and more.

IGN: Was Harvey Dent’s transformation into Two-Face shot in IMAX?

Nolan: Gosh, I’m trying to remember … We mixed in — that depends on how you look at it. It’s a hard one to answer, actually.

IGN: What about the much talked about shot from Wizard World Chicago of seeing Dent/Two-Face from behind at the bar?

Nolan: No, that’s all 35[mm]actually.

Atonement Movie Review

Friday, December 7th, 2007


atonement-image-blog.jpg
Atonement starring Keira Knightley and James McAvoy arrive in theaters December 7th and there is already talk of several Oscar nominations for this film.

Atonement makes you thankful for DNA evidence, as it could have spared the main characters of this Joe Wright-directed drama decades of tragedy had it existed at the time the story is set. Christopher Hampton penned the screenplay adaptation of Ian McEwan’s best-selling 2002 novel, which recounts how one child’s spiteful accusation forever alters the course of three lives.

Nearly the entire first hour is spent at the sprawling English estate that the Tallis family calls home, a grand and lustrous world marked by wealth and privilege. Briony Tallis (Saoirse Ronan) is a 13 year-old aspiring playwright who witnesses a pair of encounters between her smoldering older sister Cecilia (Keira Knightley) and the housekeeper’s charming son, Robbie Turner (James McAvoy).

Briony’s confused adolescent emotions and spurned overtures prompt her to make a horrible accusation against Robbie, one that we know to be untrue but there is enough circumstantial evidence to convict Robbie. His life ruined and his romance with Cecilia cut short, Robbie is offered a reprieve from prison if he enlists to fight in World War II. He does so, but longs for the day when he and Cecilia can be reunited.

Briony, meanwhile, has grown up (and is now played by Romola Garai) and realizes how horrible her actions were. Briony — who, like Cecilia, serves as a nurse for wounded soldiers back from the war — struggles to find the right way to atone for her past transgressions. Is it too late for Briony to set things right with Robbie and Cecilia? Or can these two lovers be reunited by the very person who tore them apart?

Johnny Depp to Play Public Enemy Dillinger

Wednesday, December 5th, 2007


johnny-depp-image-blog.jpg

Fresh from playing the villainous barber in Sweeney Todd, Johnny Depp has signed on to play another villain (that’s the rumor). This time Depp is considering playing the gangster, John Dillinger. He is said to be in talks with Michael Mann this week about portraying the infamous gangster (Dillinger) in the upcoming feature length film, which is set to begin shooting in March of 2008.

With two of his projects stalling due to the writers strike, Johnny Depp is considering filling the gap by playing gangster John Dillinger in a Depression-era crime drama.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Depp was to have starred in film adaptations of either The Rum Diaries or Shantaram, but following the writing delay, he is now being wooed by director Michael Mann for his long-gestating gangster flick.

Based on Brian Burroughs’ non-fiction tome Public Enemies: America’s Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34, the film will not only chronicle the unlawful activities of the likes of Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd and Bonnie and Clyde, but also the efforts of J. Edgar Hoover and the F.B.I. to bring them to justice.
