Interstellar

WE still don’t 100% know what Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is really about (saving the world?) and this trailer doesn’t feature much in the way of new footage but on the other hand all the footage is amazing and you get to hear Michael Caine read Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night so just watch it already because that’s awesome.

Monuments Men

During World War II Europe was devastated and much of its history was in danger of being lost, destroyed at the hands of the Nazis. The Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program was an allied effort to save culturally important items before the Nazis could do that.

Review: Elysium

Elysium

Neill Blompkamp burst on the scene a few years back with District 9, a movie fresh new SciFi action film concerning a group of displaced aliens living in a massive ghetto in Johannesburg South Africa. The film was born out of Blompkamp and Peter Jackson’s attempts to put together a Halo movie and when that fell apart those resources when to expanding Blompkamp’s short film Alive in Joburg into a full fledged movie. The result was a fantastic film with an original approach, story, characters and clear allegory to social and political issues facing us today. I’m not going to spoil it, just go watch it.

I mention this because the follow up, Elysium, is another SciFi action film with an interesting and unique approach and some clear allegories to social and political issues of our time. So how does it stack up? Not bad, actually.

Review: Behind the Candelabra

Behind The Candelabra

It’s a little strange to me that Behind the Candelabra came out on HBO rather than in theatres. It’s a little strange to me that none of the studios in North America have picked the movie up for distribution. It’s a little strange to me that after all the progress we’ve made in the world the story of Liberace is still too gay for America, even though there’s nothing much there that you haven’t already seen in Brokeback Mountain and others.

It’s a shame too because Behind the Candelabra is a great movie, and this way you might not get a chance to see it.

Elysium

Neill Blomkamp’s follow up to District 9 has a cyborg Matt Damon attacking the space station where the rich live from a ruined Earth where the unwashed masses are barely scraping by. Yeah, I am indeed down with that.
