Fantastic Beasts 2 opens in 1927, a few months after Newt helped to unveil and capture the infamous Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald.

The only one who might be able to stop him is the wizard he once called his dearest friend, Albus Dumbledore.

Video Game Review – South Park: The Fractured But Whole

3 hours ago

Shaun Munro reviews South Park: The Fractured but Whole…

After a series of frustrating delays, South Park: The Fractured but Whole is finally here, arriving amid the annual late-year Aaa deluge and serving up a refreshing rebuke that’s by turns hilarious, deceptively deep and shamelessly offensive. While it doesn’t quite reach the loony heights of 2014’s The Stick of Truth, it does nevertheless remedy a number of that game’s nagging issues, and will be easy catnip (or rather, Coonnip) for the series’ fans.

The Fractured but Whole knows what worked best the first time around and clings pretty closely to the same formula, yet where The Stick of Truth trained its focus on skewering RPG games, the sequel takes aim at the current superhero movie boom, universes and all. The children of South Park have become divided over Cartman’s plans for a giant superhero movie franchise starring them all, »

Why Mindhunter Is One of Netflix’s Greatest Ever Shows

3 hours ago

Samuel Brace on Netflix’s Mindhunter

“How do we get ahead of crazy if we don’t know how crazy thinks?”

This is the central question behind Netflix’s latest original drama Mindhunter, a series based on real life events and characters, a series that delves into the formation of the FBI’s behavioural sciences unit. Mindhunter has an awful lot going for it, and what has been achieved here is nothing short of masterful. Forget best Netflix show of 2017, Mindhunter is up there with the streaming services greatest ever efforts period.

Melding the best elements of two television formats, procedural and serial, Mindhunter (based on true events) follows two FBI agents who hope to understand what motivates humanity’s worst to do exactly what they do. This show is a study in the fragile nature of the human mind, and the results are outstanding.

So, what’s so good about it? »

Marvel’s Inhumans Season 1 Episode 5 Review – ‘Something Inhuman This Way Comes’

6 hours ago

Martin Carr reviews the fifth episode of Marvel’s Inhumans

It has taken five weeks for Inhumans to amount to more than a fragmented mess of scenes, effects and paper-thin character arcs. Thankfully after trawling through the mire of irrelevance, wasted opportunity and needless segues we reach something positive worth mentioning. This episode has pace, broadens character, brings drama, peppers pathos around and feels cohesive. As televisual epiphanies go this is one of the better ones, as Karnak and Jen kick things off, Medusa and Black Bolt finally share the same space and different social casts finally interact.

Separating these people for four episodes may have made sense structurally and seemed necessary to give the series foundation, but this may have irrevocably damaged it for good. However just when you thought it would be another round of meaningless segues, truncated exchanges and fragmented moments Inhumans manages to surprise. Flashbacks are suddenly used with relevance, »

53rd Chicago International Film Festival Capsule Review – Mudbound (2017)

6 hours ago

It is undeniably perplexing that a person, regardless of any race, gender, or sexual orientation, can willingly enlist and fight in a war only to come home treated like mud. There are a lot of intertwining stories going on in Mudbound (a film directed by Dee Rees and adapted from the novel by Hillary Jordan that is so timely and powerful, I feel ashamed for not having seen her other breakout work Pariah yet), complete with frequent voiceover narrations from six different characters (admittedly, some of it is unnecessary and too much, despite their poetic qualities penned in by writer Virgil Williams). It’s an ambitious concept that many veteran directors, let alone rising filmmakers, would fumble into an indescribable mess, except that doesn’t happen here; members of families both Caucasian and African-American feel real and with purpose, all connected to the bigger picture at hand. It’s about »

Gotham Season 4 Episode 5 Review – ‘The Blade’s Path’

8 hours ago

Martin Carr reviews the fifth episode of Gotham season 4…

This week was more for the comic book aficionados than those after straightforward entertainment. For the first time in a while I had to look up references for Gotham rather than going on pure narrative twists and turns. My reasoning being the emergence of Solomon Grundy formally Butch Gilzean played by Drew Powell. Knowing nothing about this iconic character it seemed appropriate to find out more, which ultimately proved more interesting than almost everything else.

Looking like an albino version of The Incredible Hulk with Alice Cooper mascara, this non-verbal lumping homunculus visually reminded me of Mel Smith’s torturer in The Princess Bride. Incredibly strong, confused and looking for direction, Powell spends his time being set on fire, beating people up and forming an attachment to an unlikely ally. Somewhat different from the comic book origin story his purpose, intentions »

Scott Haze in talks for Venom movie, rumours suggest film will adapt Venom: Lethal Protector

8 hours ago

Coming hot on the heels of the casting of Reid Scott (Veep), it is now being reported that Scott Haze (Midnight Special, Thank You For Your Service) is in talks to join the cast of Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff movie Venom. Details on his character are being kept under wraps.

Ruber Fleischer (Zombieland) is set to direct Venom, with Tom Hardy taking on the lead role of Eddie Brock, and Riz Ahmed, Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate also on board to star.

Meanwhile, although plot details are being kept under wraps for the time being, Omega Underground is reporting that the storyline may adapt the six-issue comic book series Venom: Lethal Protector.

October Horrors 2017 Day 21 – Prometheus (2012)

9 hours ago

Prometheus, 2012.

Directed by Ridley Scott.

Starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Charlize Theron, Logan Marshall-Green, Sean Harris, Rafe Spall, Emun Elliott, Benedict Wong, and Kate Dickie.

Synopsis:

The research vessel Prometheus carries a team of scientists to a mysterious planet on a mission to uncover the secrets regarding the origins of the human race. Far from meeting their makers, the scientists instead uncover a centuries-old plot that if successful could lead to the extinction of humanity.

After four films following the character of Ripley and two abysmal crossovers with the Predator franchise, the Alien franchise had seemingly run out of steam and looked like it would finally enter retirement.

However, some disagreed and none more so than director Ridley Scott, who owes his very career to the original 1979 film that catapulted him to fame, and felt that there was still life (and money) to be wrung from the series. »

The Best Short Films from the 61st BFI London Film Festival

10 hours ago

Ben Robins with the best short films from the BFI London Film Festival…

This year’s Lff was another seriously star-studded affair, with talks of Oscars and hefty awards-season releases sewn into almost every single conversation around. But some of the best talent on show this year actually ended up coming from the festival’s smallest showcase – its shorts.

Everyone starts somewhere, and for most of these filmmakers, the attached shorts are huge stepping stones towards all sorts of eventual acclaim. So remember these names in the coming years, because aside from generating some of the most fascinating and entertaining content of this year’s festival circuit, they’re also, without a shadow of a doubt, destined for even more greatness.

Real Gods Require Blood (dir. Moin Hussain)

Easily one of the most talked-about shorts of the fest (and rightfully so) was Moin Hussain’s beautifully grim kitchen-sink horror, which »

Why does Marvel keep using the same villain for every movie?

10 hours ago

Anghus Houvouras on Marvel’s villains…

Next year Marvel Studios will turn ten years old. This milestone is being marked with a celebration that Kevin Feige touched briefly upon. There’s certainly a lot to celebrate. Marvel’s foray into feature films has been an unmitigated success financially and with the ticket buying movie public. Whether you love the Marvel movies or have been lulled into a state of ambivalence by their painfully formulaic construction, it’s impossible to argue their success or how much they’ve changed the Hollywood blockbuster.

I’m one of the precious few waiting for Phase Three to end. The exhilaration I experienced with Iron Man ended right around the closing credits of The Avengers. I’ve become tired of the Marvel Cinematic Universe because of the films have been nothing but copy/paste productions for the last five years. Sure, there are a few exceptions. »

Second Opinion – The Snowman (2017)

11 hours ago

The Snowman, 2017.

Directed by Tomas Alfredson

Starring Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jonas Karlsson, Toby Jones, Val Kilmer and J.K. Simmons

Synopsis:

Detective Harry Hole investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman.

For the third time this year, Michael Fassbender has delivered a decent performance in a film well below his talents. Following Assassin’s Creed and Alien: Covenant I had high hopes that this tremendous actor would be given some meaty material. Unfortunately The Snowman has too much going on for its own good.

Fassbender plays Detective Harry Hole, a drunk and slightly passed it policeman who is drawn into a game of cat and mouse with the titular killer who leaves snowmen at the scene of his crimes. So far so good. Unfortunately the audience are then treated to multiple smaller stories that detract from the case and »
