This week, we travel to Tombstone, Arizona to relive the gunfight at the OK Corral with Bruce Broughton's score for the iconic cowboy film. Movie. Film. Hard to say.
We talk to professional fighters turned actors Cody Hackman and Krzysztof Soszynski about working together on the MMA drama Tapped Out, what’s important to them as professionals when they watch a film about fighting, why film and sports fans love fighting movies, and their experiences as actors.
Time once again for our writers to look to their latest Blu-Ray, DVD, and VOD purchases with looks at new releases The Lego Movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Alan Partridge, Small Time, The Cold Lands, Tapped Out, and A Wife Alone, and re-releases for The Life Aquatic, Judex, Hearts and Minds, The Revengers, and Countess Dracula.
This week, action and misery seem to be the themes as Andrew Parker takes on Shame and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, while Noah Taylor looks at The Divide, and Phil Brown watches Contraband
The Divide is a psychological thriller about post-apocalyptic survival that is often horrifying and all around nightmarish. From claustrophobia to torture, radiation sickness and murder, this movie is intentionally void of anything that makes an audience feel comfortable or at ease for longer than one or two brief moments. On this level it's an achievement, but ultimately the story suffers from a shapeless script.
The Divide is a psychological thriller about post-apocalyptic survival that is often horrifying and all around nightmarish. From claustrophobia to torture, radiation sickness and murder, the only thing comfortable about this movie was how snugly it fit into the middle of Toronto After Dark’s line-up.
