Star Wars Resistance Season 2 Episode 5

In the rare case that Star Wars Resistance settles down to focus on a basic, specific story, the show genuinely shines, hinting at what it always could have always been. Resistance has tried to be a lot of things, muddying up what it was trying to do or be. So with a season with very clear stakes–being trapped in a heavily disabled ship with agitated people, semi-hostile pirates, and being chased by the First Order–the show now has a specific set of obstacles to deal with.

While many of those obstacles have been utilized in the past four episodes, they felt weirdly secondary, rarely immediate. So “The Engineer” feels like a breath of fresh air,

  • Variety
Barcelona — “Sacred Spirit,” “Five Little Wolves” and “Ane” are among five feature projects to be put through development at the Ecam Madrid Film School’s pioneering Incubator development program.

The Incubator forms part of The Screen, Ecam’s umbrella initiative aimed at nurturing on the rise Spain-based talent kinks with Europe’s film and TV industries.

Selected by Variety as a Spanish talent to track, Chema García Ibarra will direct “Spirit,” from Basque production house Apellániz & De Sosa, which has half of Spain searching for a missing girl as a Spanish Ufology association plans a night studying the heavens. The fate of humanity depends on one of its members, the morbidly obese José Manuel, who hides a secret.

García Ibarra’s debut short “Attack From the Robots From Nebula 5,” was selected for Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes and took the 2010 Meliès d’Or Short Film Award. His newest film, co-directed with Ion de Sosa,

Us actor and television legend Ed Asner is also backing the new sanctuary: “Animals deserve to live free, not be exploited for entertainment. That’s why I support the work of Animal Defenders International, and their new sanctuary, a place these animals can at last experience love and kindness.

Atomic Blonde review – lean, neon-lit thriller

Charlize Theron excels as an action lead in this cold war spy story, adapted from graphic novel The Coldest City

I can’t think of any actor more deserving of their own pulpy action franchise than Charlize Theron. Having stolen Mad Max: Fury Road from Tom Hardy one-handed (literally), she is relentlessly, murderously brilliant in this adaptation of Antony Johnston’s graphic novel The Coldest City. The setting is Berlin just before the fall of the Wall; the paranoid hangover of the cold war is giving way to a new era of hungry opportunism. A British agent has been murdered; a valuable list is missing. And MI5 asset Lorraine Broughton (Theron, looking like Debbie Harry dipped in venom) is flown in to clear up the mess. There she butts heads with fellow agent David Percival (James McAvoy, skeevy-sexy, accessorised with beer sweats and casual treachery) and has a fling with

Review: Atomic Blonde (2017)

David Leitch’s cinematic rendition of graphic novel The Coldest City holds true to its roots in genre, styling & characterisation, creating an astounding & brutally fresh view on the spy genre, however often fails to keep its audiences gripped, and falls short of its overarching style.

Set in 1989 Berlin, international tensions are high, as British Intelligence fights for The List, a list of every active agent in the Soviet Union. Having been sent by MI6 to retrieve The List and assassinate a mysterious loose-lipped double-agent, Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) fights her way through Berlin, uncovering secrets and corruption, she can trust no-one.

Sounds familiar right? Atomic Blonde has an underlying plot structure which screams nothing new to a viewer, the Berlin Wall, international espionage, secrets & fight scenes. However, as the film’s opening credits show, this is not that story. Leitch’s graphic and brutal spy flick brings audiences the female John Wick,

Atomic Blonde Review: Dir. David Leitch (2017)

Atomic Blonde review: Charlize Theron channels her inner John Wick in this eighties-set spy action-thriller.

Atomic Blonde review by Kat Hughes.

Atomic Blonde review

Director David Leitch has been in the movie industry for years. He started life as a stunt double, most notably working on The Matrix films, before venturing into directing with stunt-mate Chad Stahelski. The duo’s first project, John Wick, took the world by storm. What on paper should have been a terrible Dtv, was actually an inventive an incredible tour-de-force. Now Leitch ventures out on his own with Atomic Blonde.

Atomic Blonde sees Charlize Theron take centre stage in an eighties-set tale of Cold War spies. Theron plays Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent, tasked with retrieving an important list from Berlin during the fall of the Berlin Wall. Upon arrival, she partners with David Percival (played by James McAvoy), an embedded station chief, to navigate

Feminist Friday: Funny is Funny, Finke

This Week in Argh

Sort-of-always-angry Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke posted a rant in her Emmy blog about how hot women can’t be funny.

No. No no no no no. No. Did I mention no? Also no. No.

Way to “defend” women in comedy by missing all the points while contributing to dumb sexist stereotypes at the same time.

The problem is not that Hollywood only hires hot women, who cannot possibly be funny. The problem is that Hollywood tends to hire only the funny women who are also hot.

And that problem is perpetuated when people — including other women — slice women up into categories based on hotness instead of, say, judging skilled and talented women purely on their skill and talent. Suggesting that the many funny women who are also attractive must not really be one of those things is stupid

Watchmen Review

  • MovieFanboys
Watchmen Review It's taken its time. Watchmen is everything it should be: a complex, confusing, multi-layered, serious and very violent story that at once doesn't make complete sense but creates a picture that is about as original and imaginative as Alan Moore's brain would wish it to be...

<!--break-->

That's not to say Alan Moore would approve this Hollywood adaptation. Truthfully he'd most likely hate it. For the rest of us, somehow Zack Snyder has taken a much loved work of comic art and layered it piece by piece in a film that oozes its faithfulness in every frame. This is the comic but not as you know it. The result is a movie that will impress most comic and movie lovers and alienate your date. As it should. Watchmen should not be a movie that allows everyone to join the club - the comic is serious adult literature -
