All Is Madness And Entropy In High Rise – Look! It Moves! by Adi Tantimedh

Adi Tantimedh writes, I'd been looking forward to a movie of J.G. Ballard's High Rise for a long time. It had been passed from one filmmaker to another for decades, ever since it was first published in the 1970s. Finally, it's been made by Ben Wheatley, the first director to adapt Ballard who's actually British […]

To Watch Is To Be Hardcore Henry – Look! It Moves! By Adi Tantimedh

Hardcore Henry is a hoot. The first action movie shot entirely from the first person, it's a cheap, crazy, throw-everything-and-the-kitchen-sink-at the-wall-along-with-bags-of-blood movie that's out to be as fun as possible. You are Henry. You wake up to wake up to find your body rebuilt with nearly-indestructible cyborg parts and a woman claiming to be your […]

The Hateful 8 And The Shadow of Agatha Christie – Look! It Moves! By Adi Tantimedh

Adi Tantimedh writes, Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful 8 is Reservoir Dogs reconfigured as a dystopian 70s Western and filtered through Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. It openly references the authentic snowbound setting of the Spaghetti Western The Great Silence, even including its downbeat and pessimistic tone.  It has Italian Horror-style levels of gore […]

Bosch And The Return To Noir City – Look! It Moves! by Adi Tantimedh

Adi Tantimedh writes, I'm always happy for an excuse to write about Los Angeles as a mythical city, a state of mind, the city of Film Noir. And Bosch is the latest perfect excuse. A 10-part adaptation of the novels by Michael Connelly into a single season of TV to create its own "novel for […]

Adi Tantimedh writes, Slow period as 2015 begins, so I thought I'd tell you about some things you might not know about.
