Arnold Schwarzenegger Joins KUNG FURY Film

Splashingtons, first all let’s have a round of applause for the fact that I spelled Schwarzenegger correctly without Google. Not now, but when I made the headline. Now, I looked up at the headline to spell it again. I’ll be calling him Arnold for the rest of the article. Anyway, remember how I was gushing over how the short film I reviewed years ago (Kung Fury) was being given a feature film that will follow the events of the first film? Well, not only is Michael Fassbender on board, they just got a pretty big kick in the awesomes:...

SICARIO 2 Director In Talks To Direct CALL OF DUTY

Splashers, was anyone else aware they want to make a Call of Duty movie? I guess that makes sense, it is a huge video game franchise. Based on the loyal game following, who buys the same game year after year, this may result in big bucks even if it sucks. Now the, moving on to the film building steam and looking real, Variety reports the director of the upcoming Sicario 2 is in talks to direct the movie based on Activision’s mega shooter. Stefano Sollima (Gomorra) is in the negotiations stage, according to the report, so maybe nothing will...

READY PLAYER ONE Releases “Come With Me” Trailer

Ready for Ready Player One? We are, and we are super excited after the latest trailer, entitled Come With Me, was released by Warner Bros. yesterday. In the near-two minute clip, we hear the voice of newcomer Tye Sheridan as Parzival given viewers an Oasis 101 tutorial about the world they are about to experience. It is set to an eerie and ghosty version of the song “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and, in particular, the Come With Me opening lyrics, perhaps the wrong decade for the reference, but still. As you know if you have been following us,...

FILM REVIEW: THE PARTY Is a Parody that Invites You Into the World of the Obnoxiously Self-Involved

The dark comedy satire about the lives of pedantic self-absorbed characters may not be new—not if a certain Mr. Woody Allen and his disciples have anything to say about it. Indie filmmaker Sally Potter (Ginger & Rosa) takes a stab at the genre, infusing her new film, The Party (which had its premiere last year at the Berlin International Film Festival), with the unique and welcome perspective of what happens when it is the women behaving badly alongside the men. Though the film is obnoxious and grating at times—arguably, purposefully, much like its protagonists—its crisp runtime and incisive jabs...

FILM REVIEW: NOSTALGIA Is A Bummer of a Movie About Loss and Sadness

Most studies about loss—the loss of life, of love (apropos of Valentine’s Day), or of objects—offer a sort of cathartic mechanism through the insight they offer into how humans grapple with such experiences and why they make us who we are. But in the upcoming Palm Springs Film Festival movie Nostalgia, it really is just suffering that is at hand, naked, unabashed pain, without even so much of a hint as to something redemptive to say about the experience. The net result is a movie that is not only a bummer to watch, but really not all that interesting,...

FILM REVIEW: BLACK PANTHER, A Comic Book Movie With Complex Themes and Vibrant Characters

Wakanda has a new king and the Marvel Cinematic Universe may have a new ruler as well. The 18th film in the MCU’s bulging portfolio, Black Panther, hits theaters this weekend. And as T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) takes the throne, a refreshing new style of deeper, more challenging superhero movie (augured by Fruitvale Station auteur Ryan Coogler) may be taking over the silver screen. Or so one hopes. While Black Panther does not completely shed the chains of story fatigue which bind it to its brethren, it does feature the most sterling cast the Marvel world has seen in a...
