Film Composer John Barry Now Living-Impaired

Posted on 31 January 2011 by mjones

Film-Composer, the legendary John Barry is no longer breathing air, reported USA today. Responsible for composing the scores of films such as Midnight Cowboy, Dances With Wolves, Out Of Africa and 11 James Bond films, this is a man who’s music will live forever, even though he did not.

Pay your respects, and watch one of these films that he helped to make memorable in the extreme, and for once think very hard about how integral the music is to the theatrical experience.

[Rec] Genesis casting news…

Posted on 28 January 2011 by TH3 No08

A few years ago I stumbled across the small spanish horror movie [REC]. It was a verite style horror movie, filmed from various helmet cameras and television cameras to capture the action taking place in a small apartment complex as a zombie/demon/rabies outbreak happened. It was awesome, I loved it, I couldn’t wait to see the sequel [REC] 2 when it was announced and I was not dissappointed when I did see it. Now I’m equally excited to see that they are moving forward with two more films that will fill in the gaps between the first two films as well as spread the story to the world outside the apartment building. Let the awesomeness ensue…

Via geektyrant.com

Blooding-Disgusting has reported that Leticia Dolera has been cast alongside Diego Martin for [REC] Genesis. Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero will split directing duties for the final two films in the franchise,

Visual effects demo reel from the film Black Swan…

Posted on 28 January 2011 by TH3 No08

It’s amazing the amount of detail work that goes into creating a good 3d compositions and the best part is when you don’t even notice it’s there until it’s pointed out. That is certainly the case with Black Swan. As an FX creator myself I’m always on the look out for poor work to ridicule and laugh at so I can look smart but this was not the case for this movie. Most of the effects I did not notice until watching this very cool video. Check out the effects and then wonder quietly to yourself why this movie wasn’t nominated for a best visual effects oscar…

The Mechanic – Review

Posted on 28 January 2011 by Kevin Minke

Starring Jason Statham, Ben Foster, Donald Sutherland, Tony Goldwyn, and Mini Anden.
Rating: 4/5 stars

Within the first 15 minutes of this film you have everything an action movie needs; a bad guy (drug lord), an awesome kill, the hero escapes and then a beautiful woman getting down and dirty with him. What more can you ask for? Depth, 3-Dimensional characters, beautiful cinematography. Well in this reviewers humble opinion it has the action formula’s version of all of these. Now for those out there that do not know already, this is a remake of a classic Charles Bronson film of the same name from 1972. Like many of you out there, I had not seen the original before watching this version, and I’m really glad I had not. I came in not knowing where things were going, though I had a good idea from my extensive knowledge of film, nor did I have my critical comperative glasses on like many of the other critics in the audience.

If you liked The Transporter or any of the action films that Jason Statham has been in, then you should like this film. This story of betrayal, revenge and homicide has a good dose of humor and an excellent mixture of action and exposition. The original in my opinion, and I know I’ll get flamed for this somewhere out there, is just not as good as this great little remake. In good 1970′s form it takes a long while for the movie to open up and let you in. Though the truly disappointing aspects of the film are the characters that I just couldn’t really relate to. In the new Mechanic they aren’t just psychopaths out to kill cause it feels good, they have doubts and concerns though they still follow the job. This just breathes more life into not only Statham’s Arthur Bishop but into the reasons why he trains Steve McKenna (Ben Foster). Foster does of a great job of playing the disappointing son, that a lot of us can relate to, and strives to make something more of himself thanks to Bishop pulling him from a downward spiral of revenge.

If you’re looking for a good dose of action and some great Statham fight scenes then you can not ask for anything better than this. Believe me you will not be sorry.
