‘Snowpiercer’ Blu-ray Review
Stars: Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, John Hurt, Octavia Spencer, Alison Pill, Luke Pasqualino, Ewen Bremner, Tómas Lemarquis, Kang-ho Song, Ah-sung Ko, Steve Park | Written by Joon-ho Bong, Kelly Masterson | Directed by Joon-ho Bong

Due to the power of movies we all have had the pleasure of seeing our world come to a crumbling end. From demonic annihilation to worldwide environmental disasters to crippling epidemics, we have seen humanity fall in nearly every way possible. Bon Joon-ho’s latest film Snowpiercer is another addition to the very crowded field of post-apocalyptic thrillers. This ambitious take—on life after a failed global warming experiment kills the entire world population except a small group aboard highly advanced train—shows originality and ingenuity can still permeate in the world of genre films.

Snowpierecer’s concept is the thematic version of an optical illusion. Depending on your point of view it

Film Review: Snowpiercer (2013) by Bong Joon-ho

Film Review: Snowpiercer (2013) by Bong Joon-ho
Seven years ago Bong Joon-ho first tried his hand at an English-language production. The film in question? “Snowpiercer”. An extraordinary movie based on a French graphic novel, written for the screen by Bong and Kelly Masterson. With an estimated budget of 40 million Us dollars, “Snowpiercer” is still the most expensive Korean production ever made. This gamble surely paid off, as the movie was undoubtedly a critical and financial success. Bong Joon-ho’s recent mainstream success has given the title a second life, recently getting a new release on Blu-ray, which makes it a perfect time to look back at this unique project.

After a failed global-warming experiment kills off most of earth’s population and encases the planet in snow and ice, one train, the Snowpiercer, carries the last survivors. These survivors should be the lucky few, yet a rigid and unfair class-system led by one Minister

The Last Full Measure (2019) review: Fantastic acting all round ensures this true life tale of sacrifice gets the respect it deserves

The Last Full Measure (2019) review: Fantastic acting all round ensures this true life tale of sacrifice gets the respect it deserves
Named in reference to Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, writer/director Todd Robinson’s long time coming The Last Full Measure is a film and story that will mean so much to many American viewers. Not to say that it’s appeal is just limited to that one market (far from it) but with the horrors of the war in Vietnam slowly becoming a violent entry in the history books, it is fantastic to see a film that treats the conflict with such sensitivity. Vietnam has inspired many a film, even pictures not directly based on the war itself, and often a certain approach is taken but in Robinson’s film, things are less about the battle that fractured minds and destroyed lives and more about the people and how survival can be a sentence.

Analysis mode: Emmy pundits are crazy to discount Aaron Paul (‘Westworld’) for Best Drama Actor

Analysis mode: Emmy pundits are crazy to discount Aaron Paul (‘Westworld’) for Best Drama Actor
Aaron Paul won three Supporting Drama Actor Emmys for his star making turn in “Breaking Bad.” So why are most Gold Derby users sleeping on this Emmy favorite’s chances in the Best Drama Actor category for his role as Caleb in Season 3 of “Westworld?”

As of this writing, Paul shockingly sits in 13th place in Gold Derby’s 2020 Emmy odds for Drama Actor. Even more distressing is that he has support from just one expert. None of the editors are predicting his nomination. But these prognosticators should rethink their Emmy rankings.

Pundits were certain that “Westworld” would fall off the Emmy map in 2018 for Season 2, admittedly it’s most complicated season thanks to multiple diverging timelines in the narrative. Emmy voters didn’t care about the complex story, however. They loved piecing together the mysteries of HBO’s sci-fi drama and lauded it with a whopping 22 nominations. That was

‘Westworld’ will make Emmy history if Aaron Paul becomes the show’s 4th Best Actor nominee

‘Westworld’ will make Emmy history if Aaron Paul becomes the show’s 4th Best Actor nominee
Will Aaron Paul be nominated for Best Drama Actor at the Emmys for joining the cast of “Westworld” this spring for season three? He already has a trio of Emmys under his belt for his supporting role on “Breaking Bad,” but if he does make the cut for his “Westworld” turn as a traumatized military veteran who teams up with robotic host Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), he’ll set a new Emmy record.

Westworld” has already had three different actors nominated for Best Drama Actor: Anthony Hopkins (2017), Jeffrey Wright (2018) and Ed Harris (2018). Paul would be the fourth, and no program in Emmy history has every received nominations in this category for four different actors. As it stands, “Westworld” is already tied for that record with three.

Lionsgate presents Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer for the first time on UK Blu-ray™ and DVD – 25 May 2020
From the visionary mind behind 2020 Oscar-winner “Parasite“, Bong Joon-Ho’s star-studded dystopian sci-fi thriller “Snowpiercer” is making its way to Blu-ray and DVD for the very first time in the UK.

Set in 2031, the entire planet is frozen and the world’s only survivors live aboard the Snowpiercer: a train that’s been hurtling around the globe for the past seventeen years. Within the carriages the remnants of the human race have formed their own divisive economic and class system.

This is all set to change when Curtis (Chris Evans) leads a group of lower-class citizens, who live in squalor at the back of the train, on a fight to the front of the Snowpiercer to share the food and wealth equally among the inhabitants. Each section of the train holds new surprises for the rebel group as they battle their way from carriage to carriage. A revolution has begun…

Michael Keaton's 10 Worst Films (According To IMDb)
Every actor's career is a series of ups and downs. Michael Keaton is no stranger to this precedent, and has reached the highest highs any actor can achieve, but has also had many notable low moments. He made it big with 1989's Batman and breathed new life not only into the character, but into his career.

Emmy spotlight: Only a robot would ignore Evan Rachel Wood’s awards worthy performance in ‘Westworld’
Spoiler Alert: This article contains spoilers for the Season 3 finale of “Westworld.”

Even among an impressive ensemble cast that includes Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris and Emmy-winner Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood has been a standout of “Westworld.” As Dolores Abernathy, the enigmatic robot damsel-in-distress who becomes a sort of revolutionary leader, she has served as the closest thing to a main character the HBO sci-fi series has had. Season 3, perhaps more than any other, has been a showcase for the actress and her character, and Emmy voters would do well to take notice. After all, it’s possible they might not get another shot, considering the way things played out in the season finale.

Dolores’s arc over three seasons has been dramatic, to say the least. In Season 1, she was just a character in a larger simulation, forced to go through the same interactions over and over again.

‘Snowpiercer’ on TNT Review: A Frustrating Exercise in Adaptation

‘Snowpiercer’ on TNT Review: A Frustrating Exercise in Adaptation
It's hard to believe Snowpiercer the 2013 movie and Snowpiercer the 2020 TNT series are adapted from the same source material, the graphic novel Le Transperceneige (re-released in English in 2014, with new installments continuing the story into 2019). The former Snowpiercer is a distinctly dark, brutal, realist adaptation directed by Oscar-winning director Bong Joon Ho and starring Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, and Ed Harris. The latter is a new TV show from Graeme Manson (Orphan Black) and sees Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs leading an international cast in a more technicolor, melodramatic spin which demands patience …

9 Big Questions We Still Have After That Wild ‘Westworld’ Season 3 Finale
(Warning: This post contains all the spoilers for the Season 3 finale of “Westworld.”)

Westworld” ended its third season Sunday with a finale that brought Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) and Caleb’s (Aaron Paul) battle against Serac (Vincent Cassel) and Maeve (Thandie Newton) over the fates of human- and Host-kind to a close. Though it wasn’t as conclusive an ending at those that wrapped up seasons 1 and 2, feeling more like the halfway point of this chapter of “Westworld” rather than the actual end of it.

After it was over, Dolores was dead, Serac was alone, and Maeve and Caleb had teamed up to try to save both of their races.

So while this chapter of Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy’s HBO sci-fi series may have revealed many things — Caleb’s full plan to shut down Rehoboam, the identity of the fifth Dolores, what Park 5 was, and the fact that

‘Westworld’ Season 3 Finale Loses 18% of Season 2 Finale Viewers
Westworld” took itself back offline on Sunday with its Season 3 finale, which drew 1.8 million multiplatform viewers. That’s down 18.2% from the final episode of the Evan Rachel Wood-led sci-fi show’s second season, which scored 2.2 million overall sets of eyeballs in June 2018.

That 1.8 million number was 13% better than last week’s episode. Perhaps that’s why Dolores is smiling.

For its initial 9 p.m. airing alone, the 75-minute Season 3 closer, titled “Decoherence,” earned 888,000 viewers, which is down a whopping 44.5% from the 1.6 million that tuned in to HBO for the 9 o’clock showing of the second season finale on June 24, 2018. Adding in an encore and streaming via HBO Go and HBO Now, and Sunday’s episode rose to that above-mentioned audience tally.

Indeed, HBO has already renewed the series for Season 4, and reports suggest the series could continue through Season 6, so there’s still plenty of story to tell.
