Rating: R Stars: Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Ninja, Yo-Landi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret Writers: Neill Blomkamp & Terri Tatchell Director: Neill Blomkamp Distributor: Sony/Columbia Release Date: March 6, 2015 Although CHAPPIE is clearly a product of present-day filmmaking – the motion capture is state of the art – it harks back to the kinds of stories that filmmakers were telling in the early ‘80s, like E.T. (minus the alien element), ROBOCOP and TERMINATOR. Director Neill Blomkamp and his co-screenwriter Terri Tatchell have a lot of love for the first sentient, self-aware robot they depict […]Read On »

RED LIGHTS movie poster | ©2012 Millennium Entertainment

Rating: R Stars: Cillian Murphy, Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro, Elizabeth Olsen, Joely Richardson, Toby Jones Writer: Rodrigo Cortes Director: Rodrigo Cortes Distributor: Millennium Entertainment Release Date: July 13, 2012 It’s a measure of just how effective RED LIGHTS is that, even though we know there has to be a twist, we don’t guess what it is before writer/director/editor Rodrigo Cortes is ready to reveal it. Moreover, he plays fair throughout, leaving clues throughout. Unfortunately, the storytelling that gets us to this point is a bit muddled, so that we, along with the film, do some unnecessary traveling in circles […]Read On »
