Second Sight: Ben Wheatley's "Free Fire" and the Anatomy of a Shootout 

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Free Fire (2017)  Directed by Ben Wheatley.Criminals killing each other in remote locations to the tune of pop culture anthems, while pontificating on honor and loyalty are an industry staple that has been overdone to the point of rebuking even the most non assuming viewer.  Rogue auteur Ben Wheatley has built his reputation by making films across genres that repulse and endear, creating a divisive body of work that has rocketed him to the top of any discussions involving unique working directors.  His latest effort Free Fire is a flawed, but meticulously constructed story in which the climax of the film is excised from the narrative, dissected, and stretched across the bulk of the running time.The result is an engaging example of the power of choreography, editing, and cin

Doctor Who – S10 E12: The Doctor Falls – Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Original 1960s-style Cybermen...not sure if kitsch or actually creepy.Or both.The Twelfth Doctor era has nearly reached its end with this, his final regular-season episode. But wow, what a finale it is: Peter Capaldi's Doctor could not have possibly had a better main-season sendoff. The Doctor Fallssees him rise to the full height of what his – and any – Doctor can and should be. In the face of an unwinnable scenario in which two lifelong foes and the force of time itself are working against him, he proves once again that The Doctor represents the philosophical force of good and hopefulness that we quite desperately need; the type of hero that can stay on the air for almost 40 seasons and stay totally relevant all the time. Last week's first half of this final two-parter was excellent: a

TV News: Game of Thrones To Get Expanded Episodes For Its Final Season

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Most fans of HBO's mega-hit series were a little disappointed that they wouldn't be getting many more seasons of their favorite show. When it was announced that season 7 and 8 would feature the final episodes of the show, many were shocked that the cable station didn't want to extend this to 10 or more seasons considering the massive successes of the property. Tonight, there's word coming down that the episodes of season 7 will be the normal length but the final 8th season will see a change in that format. Earlier it was announced that the finale would only be 6 episodes which caused a bit of moaning. But now, it looks like each final show will be an extended 80 minute episode, which will definitely put a smile on the faces of die hard fans. Season 7 premieres on July 17th. So s

Cinematic Releases: Spiderman: Homecoming (2017) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - "Stay low to the ground." It is this simple statement that defines Jon Watts' Spiderman: Homecoming, and the film's genuine, loving adherence to this concept is what propels the film to the upper echelons of Marvel's Cinematic Universe. Breaking with the genre traditions of mass destruction, ill-defined villains, and action focused storytelling, Homecoming zeroes in on the street level struggles of a world in which larger than life personas do battles in the skies above while blue collar criminals struggle to survive and adolescent would-be heroes try to harmonize the responsibilities of childhood with the consequences of taking a stand against darkness. In the aftermath of the first Avengers, Adrian Toomes builds a criminal empire fusing Chitari technology with human weaponry. Meanw
