Sundance 2014: R100 - Movie Review

Published by

R100
My Sundance experience wouldn't be complete without a foray into the utterly absurd. R100 is complete mayhem. It is deranged, indecipherable at times, and cult classic material if I've ever seen it. In the style of a retro Japanese action-thriller, R100 confounds, delights, and leaves you with a feeling of: "what the hell did I just...

Sundance 2014: Locke - Movie Review

Published by

LOCKE
I jump-started my Sundance 2014 with eighty-five minutes in a car with Tom Hardy. A one-man tour de force, Locke is a devastating character-study that raises questions about morality and what it means to do the right thing. Tom Hardy delivers a powerful performance, displaying depth, complexity, and vulnerability. Taking place entirely during a night drive to London,...

Whiplash-5547.cr2
Just walked out of director Damien Chazelle's film Whiplash, which was developed from a short film that premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. Whiplash was everything I could have asked for to kick off this year's fest. It's a meaningful, intelligent and fast-paced coming-of-age story about a teenager with a mission to become a...

Even though it's been reported time and time again that a Dredd (feature-length) sequel is out of the question, Karl Urban continues to keep hope alive for fans of the 2012 sci-fi action flick. After the poor box office figures for the movie, the chances of a sequel went from slim to none. But then the movie became somewhat of home video hit and since the sequel talks have started...
