Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) is no stranger to playing English criminals; he’s been a simple crook in Layer Cake, a lovestruck gay gangster in RocknRolla, and a nutty musclebound prisoner in Bronson. But, Hardy may be taking his most interesting approach to the unlawfull – although Bronson is pretty damn unconventional – with his recently confirmed (by the Guardian) role in the upcoming biopic of the Kray twins, Legend. The actor will doubling his workload as he takes on the roles of both notorious gangsters, Ronnie and Reggie Kray. Read more…

Movie Review – ‘Transcendence’

April 18th, 2014 By

transcendence poster

I had high hopes for Transcendence; the subject matter is compelling, as were the first few teasers for the film, with a strong cast in place. We even named it our most anticipated movie of April 2014 at the end of last year. As more (read: “worse”) trailers came out closer to release, my anticipation waned significantly, but I stand by that initial excitement. Somewhere in here was that film I wanted to see, one that dealt as meaningfully with the benefits and dangers of technology on the mind, just like Her did with technology and emotions and the videogame Deus Ex: Human Revolution did with technology and the body.

The Most Disturbing Thing I Have Ever Seen

April 18th, 2014 By

bbbbul

Even though I have seen countless films and have traveled through some of the darkest and most disturbing nether regions of the internet, there still remain moments when I am shocked out of my desensitized shell and genuinely and profoundly and utterly repulsed. Those also happen to be some of my very favorite moments. There’s certainly a devilish perversion in witnessing something so sick and twisted that it practically knocks you right off your seat (or at least there is for me anyway).

capitan-america

Superhero movies are a thing right now.  To be more specific, superhero sequels are THE thing right now.  They have been for the past decade and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon.  Of the five superhero films being released in 2014, three are sequels (Captain America: The Winter Solider, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past), one is a reboot (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), leaving only one original adaptation (Guardians of the Galaxy).  It’s not hard to see why.  These films are primarily based off long running comic book series with years of material to draw from.  By their nature, comic book adaptations are franchise pay dirt.
