The Machine

The-Machine-02

Perhaps unoriginally, but nevertheless aptly titled, Caradog James’ “The Machine” is one surprisingly well-made sci-fi film. Sometimes in the future, the world plunged in economic crisis due to a new cold war with China. Vincent (Toby Stephens) is a brilliant A.I. scientist and is developing implants for Britain’s Ministry of Defense to help soldiers with brain damage. His secret project is to develop a technology to save his daughter affected with Rett’s syndrome. For this he brings help in the form of a young woman Ava (Caity Lotz).

Mis-drop

mis-drop-01

“Mis-drop” is a short sci-fi, clocking at a little over 13 minutes. Written and directed by New Zealand filmmaker Ferand Peek, “Mis-drop” is – can you guess it? – about a mis-drop. Set 300 years into the future in a huge-ass battle, a group of mercs are about to be deployed into the war zone via drop-pods. Thing go wrong, of course and you get to witness the proverbial shit hitting the fan.

But how do you pull off an epic scale battle without having a budget? Well, you use your imagination. “Mis-drop” is told from the perspective a forensic [...] Continue Reading…

3 Days to Kill

3dtk-01

Kevin Costner returns to action in “3 Days to Kill”, a somewhat strange film devised by Luc Besson and directed by McG. Why is “3DtK” strange? Because by all accounts, it shouldn’t have worked. I shouldn’t have enjoyed this. It should’ve been crap. Most reviewers say it was. But I, in fact, liked it. Maybe that makes me strange too.

Costner is Ethan Renner, a CIA agent diagnosed with a lethal pulmonary disease. After his latest assignment, which was a fiasco, he is dismissed and retired. This brings him back to Paris to his estranged family, wife Catherine (Connie Nielsen) [...] Continue Reading…

Edge of Tomorrow

eot-01

Hype, hype, hype! “Edge of Tomorrow”, based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel “All You Need is Kill”, was definitely my most expected feature of the year. Yes, even more than “The Expendables 3″, if you can believe it! And I hyped it so damn much in my head, that I ended just a tiny bit disappointed although I consider the film a blast both literally and metaphorically.

Tom Cruise is Major William Cage. Instead of a battle-hardened soldier, he is a PR guy, promoting the military on the eve of a planetary war against invading aliens known as Mimics. Without any [...] Continue Reading…
