Watch ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ Then Watch These Movies

Laborer's LoveWe recommend 12 movies to watch after you see the new romantic comedy. Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s bestselling novel is being seen as a coup in Hollywood. Crazy Rich Asians mostly does right in its representation of Asian and Asian-American characters (there will always be criticisms), and the hope, if not the expectation, is that we’ll be seeing more all-Asian casts from big studio movies while also getting a further renewal of the romantic comedy genre — and that these things won’t just be mutually inclusive. At the very least, there will likely be sequels based on Kwan’s other novels. While Crazy Rich Asians is a rare mainstream Asian-cast movie from an American studio, the new rom-com has roots in other Hollywood productions as well in Chinese cinema. For this week’s list of recommendations, I’ve selected a mix of titles going back almost 100 years and including works from...

‘Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich’ Review: Living Puppets In a Lifeless Movie

Come for the gory kills, stay for the… gory kills. No matter what you think of the Puppet Master franchise you can’t really fault its tenacity or longevity. From the first film in 1989 to its 11th feature (Puppet Master: Axis Termination) in 2017 — 12th if you count 2004’s Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys, which you shouldn’t, as it’s not canon you heathens — the films have maintained a low budget, lo-fi charm while delivering gleefully ridiculous tales of puppets killing people. They’re not all good movies, far from it at times, but they found a puppet-sized niche and filled it handily. The newest entry, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, trades the scrappy personality of its predecessors for a slicker, gorier, more star-filled experience, but unfortunately it’s memorable solely for the kills. A Nazi walks into a Texas bar in 1989, and after being disgusted at a pair of lesbians...

Netflix Unceremoniously Cancels ‘The Break with Michelle Wolf’ and ‘The Joel McHale Show’

The Break with Michelle Wolf Canceled Netflix has cut down their roster of talk shows after being on the streaming service for only a matter of months. Both The Break with Michelle Wolf and The Joel McHale with Joel McHale have been canceled, but it’s the way Netflix handled the axing of the former series that is rather disconcerting. The Break with Michelle Wolf Canceled News of The Break with Michelle Wolf canceled came as a surprise to both fans and the show’s entire staff. The Daily Beast spoke to an unnamed source connected to the show who told them, “None of us can believe how classlessly Netflix has handled this.” How classlessly did Netflix handle this? Apparently the staff, including the showrunners, found out the show was canceled when the news hit Twitter. That’s a hell of a way to be fired and bad form for Netflix. The cancellation of The Break with Michelle Wolf...

‘The Last Sharknado’ Trailer Includes Time Travel, Dragon Sharks, and Tara Reid Clones

The Last Sharknado Trailer It’s been five years since SyFy brought the purposely stupid Sharknado to our screens. We’ve gotten a sequel each year since then, expanding the ludicrous B-movie’s mythology and bringing more and more D-list celebrities into the path of the shark infested funnel of death. But the joke has gone on too long, and the franchise if thankfully coming to an end. The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time is the sixth and final installment of SyFy’s atrocious TV movie series, and the sad thing is that the kind of stuff we’re seeing in this movie isn’t too dissimilar from what unfolded in Transformers: The Last Knight. Watch The Last Sharknado trailer below and you’ll see what we’re dealing with. Watch The Last Sharknado Trailer As godawful as this movie looks, what’s really infuriating is that the things that are supposed to be positively absurd and intentionally bad in this movie were...

Watch: Engaging Sci-Fi Short Film 'Kept' Questions Recording Dreams

Kept Short Film "It's the intensity; it's the purity of what you are seeing. No conscious interventions." Now this is the kind of sci-fi I'm hoping to discover. Kept is a sci-fi short made by Colombian filmmaker Jaime D. González. After first playing at a few film festivals last year, the short is now online in full for viewing for free. Set in the near future when scientists have discovered a way to record dreams, those with ulterior motives waste no time exploiting those with the most powerful dreams. Starring Jairo Camargo & Manuel Sarmiento. This is much more of a thought-provoking, "Black Mirror"-esque sci-fi than anything with big action. It goes to some dark places, but I appreciate how far they take the dream recording concept. I want to watch more. ››› Continue Reading Watch: Engaging Sci-Fi Short Film 'Kept' Questions Recording DreamsOriginal link

‘The Coolest Guy Movie Ever’ Is Not Very Cool

The Great Escape deserves better than this. The Coolest Guy Movie Ever: Return to the Scene of The Great Escape should put you off by title alone—not because it’s geared toward men or because it threatens to ignore the complex conversation surrounding gender politics of the 21st century in its wake. Those are hyper-academic subplots of criticism that the film does not earn. It should make you wince because it’s gaudy, vague, and bombastic. It is a warning sign that reads, “Beware of Lack of Subtlety.� The titular claim is half-baked to say the least. What does the “coolest guy movie ever� even assume? What would be the criteria for this award if it actually existed? It is a claim that cannot be vindicated with authority. It’s truly arbitrary, and more likely to be ignored with a tinge of frustration than actually addressed. So, in that vein, let’s leave the title behind...

Jason DeVan on Exploring the Reality of Evil in ‘Along Came The Devil’

Red DotsWe chat with the director about following in the footsteps of a cinematic masterpiece and riding the line between exploitation and truthful terror. When a filmmaker sets out to make an exorcism film, they are inviting immediate comparison to one of the all-time great horror movies. That’s quite a dare. Director Jason DeVan welcomes those critical evaluations, and as a massive Friedkin fan, understands our desire to dismiss. His faith rests in the reality of Along Came The Devil. Based on the real-life accounts of a family DeVan has grown to love, his take on demonic possession narrows its focus from cosmic terror to personal trauma. The trick became navigating the high-wire act of satisfying fans of the genre with genuine scares while paying respect to the family that suffered greatly. Just days before the release of the film, I spoke with DeVan over the phone. He was eager to relate...

‘Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween’ Trailer: R.L. Stine’s Monsters Are Unleashed in an Action-Packed Trailer

goosebumps 2 haunted halloween trailer The scariest thing about things that go bump in the night is not being able to see them — are the monsters, ghouls, and demons just a figment of your imagination or are they lurking just behind you, waiting to attack? R.L. Stine‘s Goosebumps books always perfectly tapped into this pervasive fear while introducing iconic monsters like Slappy the Dummy. But in the new Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween trailer, the mystery disappears as Slappy leads an army of spooky R.L. Stine creatures into the real world to “make Halloween last forever.” Goosebumps 2 Haunted Halloween Trailer Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween never looked so action-packed as it does in this international trailer, which shows our three protagonist kids (Jeremy Ray Taylor, Madison Iseman, and Caleel Harris) facing off against an army of witches, monsters, and tons of glow-y creatures. But most terrifying: a legion of giant gummy bears with killer instincts. The Goosebumps movies have never tried to be...

New Trailer for 'The Bray Road Beast' Doc About Werewolves in the US

The Beast of Bray Road Trailer "Every lore or myth has some truth to it…" Small Town Monsters has debuted the new official trailer for a documentary film titled The Bray Road Beast, about werewolf sightings in Wisconsin. This is the latest film made by Ohio-based filmmaker Seth Breedlove, and his Small Town Monsters label: "A production company dedicated to documenting unusual events around the country." So the story goes - in the early 90s, a rural Wisconsin community called Elkhorn was at the center of a series of real-life werewolf sightings. In their seventh film (and third feature-length documentary), Small Town Monsters takes you on an in-depth exploration of the "dogman" phenomenon. This seems like a must-see doc for horror fans and conspiracy nuts, perhaps because it makes it look like this could all be real. Werewolves really do exist! Right? Right!? ››› Continue Reading New Trailer for 'The Bray Road Beast' Doc About Werewolves...

Review: ‘Notes on an Appearance’ is a Tantalizing, Intelligent Feature Debut

notes-on-an-appearance-3Over the past few years, Ricky D’Ambrose has established himself as one of the more intriguing independent American directors. His shorts, especially Six Cents in the Pocket (2015) and Spiral Jetty (2017), are above all founded upon a radical minimalism enforced by both budget and style, recalling Robert Bresson in the quick, close-up shots of hands, objects, and faces, conveyed with a directness that suggests a shifting complexity just under the surface. Coupled with this predilection is perhaps D’Ambrose’s most singular characteristic: his lovingly crafted, authentic-looking recreations or representations of various scattered material: newspapers, journal articles, postcards, notes, subway maps, correspondence, and other sundry objects. This was especially pronounced in Spiral Jetty, a film about an archivist who uncovers a dark mystery through the papers of a deceased celebrated psychologist. With his debut feature, Notes on an Appearance, D’Ambrose takes this central idea and elaborates upon it. David (filmmaker Bingham Bryant, also the...

NYC Weekend Watch: François Truffaut, Winona Ryder, ‘Chinatown’ & More

image-w1280 Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent. Metrograph Only seen The 400 Blows? A François Truffaut retrospective should prove an eye-opening look at a master. If you loved Your Name, note that director Makoto Shinkai has a retrospective.

‘Searching’ Viral Website: Scour John Cho’s Phone For Clues About His Missing Daughter

Searching - John Cho 1 Searching, the upcoming thriller starring John Cho (Star Trek, Columbus), follows a father on a desperate quest to find his missing daughter. By now you’ve probably heard that the movie’s action unfolds entirely across computer and cell phone screens, but now Sony Pictures has created a cool Searching viral website that provides access to Cho’s character’s cell phone so we can look through his apps, messages, e-mails, and more to try to find clues about his daughter’s whereabouts. Learn more below. Here’s a trailer for the film, just so we’re all on the same page: John Cho is fantastic in the movie, delivering a nerve-wracking performance as a father who’s reaching the end of his rope. And since the movie is so reliant on technology (in a great way, not a gimmicky one), Sony has created a viral website to give us a look inside Cho’s character’s phone. This website...

Red DotsNew movies, old classics, and even a book launch highlight this year’s fest!

Today sees the first title wave announcement from the Brooklyn Horror Film Festival… and now we want to go to Brooklyn. The fest is only in its third year, but they’ve already proven themselves to be an annual love letter to horror fans thanks to the genre affection evident in the work of their programmers and organizers.

Official Trailer for 'Kusama - Infinity' Doc About Artist Yayoi Kusama

Kusama - Infinity Trailer "I come up with new ideas so quickly. My canvas can't keep up with me." Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for Heather Lenz's fascinating artist documentary Kusama - Infinity, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Lenz's Kusama - Infinity profiles world-renowned Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, now 89 years old and still creating. The film "traces Kusama’s trajectory from a conservative upbringing in Japan to battling sexism and racism in 1960s NYC to her unstoppable rise to international fame." She has re-established her prominence with the highly successful "Infinity Room" and other recent art projects and global exhibitions. I saw this at Sundance and it's a wonderful, intriguing, inspiring doc film about a truly masterful artist, spanning her entire life and career. Highly recommended. ››› Continue Reading Official Trailer for 'Kusama - Infinity' Doc About Artist Yayoi KusamaOriginal link

IMAX VR May End Before It Takes Off As Company Closes Two Centers

imax vr experience centre IMAX VR was supposed to change the face of cinema. When IMAX opened its ground-breaking virtual reality centers in several cities around the world last year, the film community was abuzz with excitement. Would this change movie-going as we know it? Could we finally live our dreams of fighting alongside John Wick? A year later, it seems like the answer is: probably not. IMAX has closed down two of its VR centers in New York and Shanghai, leaving the future of IMAX VR in question. When /Film’s Peter Sciretta got a glimpse of one of the handful of IMAX VR centers last year, the future of the new technology looked bright. Sure, there were a few kinks to iron out, but for the most part, this initiative seemed like a bold new way to get people off their couches. However, a year after IMAX opened its VR centers in Los Angeles,...
