  • Vanity - The Man In The High Castle question (Amazon show)

    11/27/2015 5:31:39 PM PST · by InvisibleChurch · 26 replies
    I just finished watching the Amazin series The Man in the High Castle. I have not read the book, but if anyone has seen the show I have a question. Is the end of the tenth show the end of the book/story? I've not seen there being a second season do did the book end w the Trade Minister waking up you-know-where? (I'm trying to avoid spoiling it for anyone who hasn't seen it). How important a are the films? Was J.Blake a spy or a member of the resistance?
  • Has Mission: Impossible Gotten Better Than James Bond?

    11/14/2015 8:31:29 PM PST · by Perdogg · 32 replies
    The spy/espionage sub-genre of movies is in no danger of petering out. This year alone brought us big films like The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Spectre, the latest James Bond adventure; not to mention news that another big spy franchise (Jason Bourne) will be continuing, as well. With so many spies out there playing cloak and dagger games across the silver screen, it’s not surprising that there could be some creative bleed-over between franchises. Mission: Impossible 5 and James Bond 24 were especially similar: both featured stories where the franchise hero had to uncover a...

    Aletelia ^ | November 7, 2015 | DAVID IVES
    It’s okay to feel a little trepidation before going to see The Peanuts Movie. After all, it was only a couple of months ago that the powers that be decided what the world really needed was a Muppets television show full of penis jokes and pessimistic cruelty. If the folks entrusted with Jim Henson’s creations were willing to submit Kermit and Fozzy to that kind of butchery, why should Charlie Brown and Snoopy be any safer? Well, let those trepidations slide away, because, to paraphrase Charles M. Schulz, happiness is a film about a warm puppy. The best way...
  • ‘Spectre’ will bore you to death

    A license to kill is also a license to not kill,” M lectures his new boss in the 24th James Bond film, “Spectre.” Well, it’s not a license to bore as much as this bloated drag manages to do. After a smashing opening sequence with a rooftop chase set against Day of the Dead observances in Mexico City, we’re plunged into a patchy plot (basically the same as the last “Mission: Impossible” outing) that’s little more than an excuse for random homages to the series’ illustrious past — reminding us how utterly mediocre this one is.

    The Weekly Standard ^ | Nov 3, 2015 | MICHAEL WARREN
    Texas senator Ted Cruz said the Rebel Alliance in George Lucas's Star Wars films are "unequivocally" the good guys. The Republican presidential candidate told THE WEEKLY STANDARD Tuesday evening the question over which side in the original three movies, the Rebels and the all-powerful Galactic Empire, was good and bad, was "not even close." Cruz's stance goes against strong evidence that the Empire helped solve a crisis of security and order following the fall of the Old Republic sometime long ago in a galaxy far, far away. The Tea Party favorite also dismissed arguments that the Empire's destruction of Alderaan,...

    Heres a fun little secret about Politics Twitter, a very narrow, very coastal, very annoying corner of the Internet of which I am regrettably a part: Every time news about the Star Wars franchise has flared up over the past few years, Politics Twitter takes the opportunity to debate whether or not the Galactic Empire is evil. I am being serious. This is how we journalists spend our time, usually during work hours. Anyway, the Star Wars news this time around was the new trailer that dropped on Monday for Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.

    I'm wondering if anyone else on FRee Republic has seen Bridge of Spies, the new Spielberg movie? I don't see a review here, so I'll start with mine. However, I'm really interested in other opinions. The movie was a little slow moving, but gripping and attention-holding to the very end. My concern is its accuracy. It says in the disclaimer right up front that it is "inspired by true events". Yet, the tale is spun as if it is all Gospel. Somehow, I doubt some of it, so I'm rushing to Google this AM to find out what is true...

    There's much to sadly shake your head at in Pan, a sort of Peter Pan Begins that manages the unlikely feat of making battles between flying pirate ships a crushing bore. Most miserably, there's the great heap of action set pieces that are easier to wait out than to track with an instrument so primitive as the human eyeperhaps the singularity is nearing, and director Joe Wright's computers are whipping these scenes up exclusively for the enjoyment of advanced artificial intelligences ... But here's perhaps the most egregious betrayal of audience intelligence in this latest go at monetizing those aspects...

    Hillary Clinton isn’t catching a lot of breaks from her former friends in Hollywood.  Or so it seems, considering the fact that big-name, big-budget director Michael Bay is premiering his latest move, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi on January 15, 2016, two hours before the Iowa Caucuses. You can see the trailer here.

    Action movie mogul Michael Bays latest bid for critical respectability may come at Hillary Clintons expense. Bay, who has been the brains behind blockbuster franchises including Transformers and Bad Boys has turned the tragic 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi into a big budget thriller. And if its first trailer is any indication, it wont depict the former secretary of states handling of the incident in a flattering light. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi which is based on a non-partisan, non-fiction book by Mitchell Zuckoff aims to be a ripped-from-the-headlines portrayal of the...

The aliens strike iconic sites elsewhere, smashing the Taj Mahal in India, the Washington Monument and parts of Manhattan.

    At the beginning and end of the new family drama Max, the filmmakers tell us about the importance of military dogs. In text appearing during the opening moments , its noted that over 3000 dogs have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and that dogs have been used in the military since World War I. The film hopes to honor that and properly does so but then unfortunately loses its stamina in a silly subplot plot about weapons being smuggled from war zones into the United States. Early on in the story, military hero Kyle Wincott (Robbie Amell) is killed overseas...

    Disneys Tomorrowland may be bombing at the box office, but on the plus side, it could win a Cliffie. The Cliffie awards go to films that exemplify cli-fi, or climate fiction, an emerging genre heating up this year as climate change themes seep from documentaries into big-budget Hollywood features. That means cli-fi films such as Tomorrowland, which has tanked despite an A-list director in Brad Bird and huge star in George Clooney, could be just the tip of the iceberg. The narrative for Hollywood is that global warming is a growing crisis, and its now set to permeate more...

    Accepting Emma Stone as an Asian-American in Aloha requires a certain suspension of disbelief and no small amount of magical thinking. In the Hawaii-set romantic comedy-drama, she portrays Allison Ng: an aggressively peppy Air Force fighter pilot of Chinese-Hawaiian-Swedish decent who falls for an existentially angst-y military contractor played by Bradley Cooper. But in order to process this idea of Stone as a bi-racial character, as someone whose genetic lineage can be traced back to the Middle Kingdom by way of Polynesia, you must first get past the obvious stumbling blocks: her alabaster skin and strawberry blond hair, her emerald...

The controversy stems from Snyder's decision to cast Superman as a brooding, Dark Knight-like character, who cares more about beating up bad guys than saving people. The casting split has proved divisive among Superman fans: Some love the new incarnation, citing him as an edgier, more realistic version of the character. But Snyder's is a different Superman than the one fans...

    The dystopian images of Fury Road depart significantly from the Mad Max films of the 1970s and 1980s. Fury Road presents us with a world where motherhood is commodified to suit an elite class of males who wish to share their property and life ambitions only with other men. Women are hooked up to machines that pump milk from their breasts and held inside dismal barracks, gestating heirs for warlords who show no sexual interest in women. The men of this warrior ruling class derive all their ecstasy from the company of muscular young males eager to labor and soldier...

That debut is about $5 million more than the entire domestic gross of the original film, and more than double the sequels $29 million budget. Heading into the weekend, analysts expected the sequel to premiere in the $40 million range. But not much about the Pitch Perfect franchise has made sense by traditional Hollywood rules. The original film, an acerbic comedy set in the low-stakes world of collegiate a capella singing, opened in September 2012hardly a time of year known...

    A well-known "men's rights activist" blog is calling for a boycott of the postapocalyptic film "Mad Max: Fury Road" for being a "feminist piece of propaganda posing as a guy flick." Author Aaron Clarey admits he has not seen the film yet, but his self-proclaimed "spidey sense" noticed that Charlize Theron "talked a lot during the trailers" for the film, and he said Tom Hardy only seemed to have cameo appearances. "Charlize Theron's character barked orders to Mad Max," writes Clarey on Return of Kings. "Nobody barks orders to Mad Max." Clarey did not like reading reviews commending Theron for...

The shows seven seasons covered the turbulent decade from 1960 until 1970, dramatizing changing styles and social mores in the lives of Mad Men and women, or professionals in the Madison Avenue advertising industry. For those who arent regular watchers: A lot of the shows male characters spent their time chasing young women around the office and a lot of the female characters spent their time trying to land or keep a husband.
