Welcome to B-movie territory. Self/Less is silly, brainless and paint-by-numbers in an endearing fashion. It's ideal lazy Sunday afternoon fare. The type of film you'd be happy to find playing on cable on a rainy day.
Well first off its not a sequel to 2012's Hunger Games. I normally wouldn't have to point that out at the beginning of a review but some people I've talked to and even some people at the screening for this film thought because it had 'Game' in the title they were from the same franchise.
This summer's biggest... no scratch that. This year's biggest box office success has now arrived on home video.
This time last year Marvel Studios kicked off the summer movie season with the pinnacle superhero movie experience in Marvel's The Avengers.
Black Sabbath are famous for the song "Iron Man" which was used heavily in the campaign for the first film starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and his alter ego.
After an interstellar team building vacation in New York this past summer the armoured Avenger is making his way back to the west coast for his third solo feature film. Yes Marvel and movie fans alike your favourite Shellhead is returning to the big screen yet again. The Golden Avenger is... okay enough with the fanboy nicknames.
Despite a Best Director Oscar and numerous accolades, the last decade hasn't been Martin Scorsese's best: his films either lumbering behemoths or modest retreads. Gangs of New York was uneven, The Aviator overstuffed (in the way biopics habitually are), and The Departed a throwback to the mob genre which made him a household name.
The problem with "relevant" films is they almost immediately become irrelevant -- "ripped from the headlines" current event movies are the mayflies of the movie biz. Canadian director Kari Skogland's Fifty Dead Men Walking takes place in Belfast circa 1980 -- a time when bloody conflict was a daily reality between British troops and the IRA.
