Have Your Say: Which Locations You Visited Most Lived Up To Their Appearance In Movies?

Today I returned from a trip to Canada and the United States of America. And as I was on pleasure, not business, I visited the Empire State Building in New York with my family, and shot the (appropriately Dutch-angled) picture...

Have Your Say: My Prescient! My Prescient!

Through the technological wonders of the smartphone and Pokemon Go, half of the United States is currently chasing after imaginary creatures, or rather artificial and virtual ones. And I cannot help but wonder how incredibly spot-on Iso Mitsuo's 2007 anime...

The Many Faces Of Frank Langella

This week sees the limited North-American release of Matt Ross' Captain Fantastic, starring Viggo Mortensen. So this week, our quiz is... but no, we did Viggo already, heh. Further down the cast-list we see Frank Langella though, so guess what?...

Review: OUR LITTLE SISTER Packs A Most Gentle Punch

For years now, Japanese director Kore-eda Hirokazu has been making films that have an uncommonly humanist core. Often emotional, sometimes openly feel-good even, his films somehow never become the saccharine dross they would undoubtedly be in lesser hands. One of...

Have Your Say: Which Anime Would You Like Another Season Of?

The Many Faces of Djimon Hounsou

This week sees the premiere of The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård as the titular ape-man. But going through the cast-list reveals many a famous or interesting name: we see Samuel L. Jackson, we see Christoph Waltz, Jim Broadbent,...

ScreenAnarchy's Top Movies Of The First Half Of 2016

One year ago, we arrived at the mid-year point in high spirits. We all marveled at the new Mad Max, got turned Inside Out by Pixar, and were seduced by Ex Machina. So we published our favorites as a nice...

Have Your Say: What Is Your Favorite Nicolas Winding Refn Film?

Last week, Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon went into limited release in North America, to mixed results and a disappointing box office. Film critics are divided as well, some calling it the year's best, others calling it a shallow...

Pretty Packaging: Arrow's BLOOD BATH Provides A Pool Of Different Versions

When distributor Arrow announced their release of a title called Blood Bath, I assumed it would be another generic eighties'-slasher-with-its-own-peculiar-fans-who-consider-it-a-classic-though-I-have-never-heard-of-it. Looking a bit closer though, this turned out to be something much, much weirder, and Arrow's approach towards this release...

The Many Faces of Jeff Goldblum

This week sees Independence Day: Resurgence appear all over the world, and as fun as it sounds to see an Independence Day film in a 3D Imax, reports haven't exactly been favorable. Check Pierce Conran's review for example, which is......

Portishead Freely Releases Their Abba SOS Cover From HIGH RISE

Say what you want about Ben Wheatley's divisive film High Rise, but having Portishead's cover of the Abba song S.O.S. on its soundtrack was a stroke of brilliance. The first song Portishead has recorded in over seven years, its inclusion...

Have Your Say: Looking Back, And The Road Forward!

The Many Faces Of Dwayne Johnson

This week sees worldwide premieres of Rawson Marshall Thurber's Central Intelligence, starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Peter Martin didn't slag the film in his review, and included the following bit about Dwayne: "Johnson has always threatened to...

Have Your Say: What Weird Creature Deserves Its Own Film?

This week will see the arrival of Finding Dory, Pixar's sequel to their humongous 2003 hit Finding Nemo. Again we can look forward to seeing sea-life portrayed in an abundance of color and creativity. And weird creatures of course (check...

The Many Faces Of Clancy Brown

Duncan Jones' Warcraft has successfully invaded and colonized pieces of Asia, Europe and Africa already, but this week the horde finally travels West of the Atlantic. It's a film which may not be to everyone's taste, but I had a...

Pretty Packaging: StudioCanal's THE THIRD MAN Is A Well-Kept Secret

On-line stores tend to give you friendly advice on "other purchases you might be interested in", and while I generally don't have much use for these, some stores have such vast catalogues and such good algorithms that I do occasionally...

Have Your Say: What Favorite Film Needs A Bust-y Release?

Those who know me know I'm fiercely addicted to special edition releases of DVDs and Blu-rays. Basically, you can wake me up for trinkets and books, weird display cases... you name it. Like a magpie, I'll go for the shiny...

Pretty Packaging: THE BOY AND THE BEAST Has A French Release Worth Fighting Over

Hosoda Mamoru has been a shining light in the Japanese animation industry, and never more so than after he left Studio Ghibli over a decade ago. What would normally be considered a career-killing move proved to take him on a...
