TV: Biel Evolved: The Sinner - Finale Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com - A great character study shows emotional momentum and dramatic movement from its central players. In a short span, USA Network's jarring hit show accomplished things that we never typically get from the television format. Setting a tone that continued across this piece of nearly cinematic work, it used pulsating music, hard hitting emotion, and brutal pain to inflict scars on its viewership that will be felt for years to come. The Sinner was a genius crime story that pulled no punches. From sensual doom and gloom to highly rendered bloody beach murder, the event series is how TV should be done. It asks its viewers to push past the turmoil, sexual deviancy, and religious zealotry to find answers. Much like the characters in the show, we were forced to the edge of sanity as a story

News: Luc Besson Say Valerian Sequel A Possibility Due To Fan Reaction and Foreign Markets

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com - Perhaps the most divisive movie of the summer, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was a verifiable box office disaster. The film barely took in a small percentage of its huge budget, crashing and burning with almost no hope of a sequel any time soon. Some loved the movie's boisterous style and others hated the casting of Dane Dehaan as the title character. However, Valerian definitely one of the most creative and visual arresting releases of the season.Now, Luc Besson says there's still hope of a sequel. The movie still hasn't opened in many markets which means it could find success elsewhere. We won't hold our breath but this is what he had to say when speaking with Italian web mag, BadTaste:“I value the Italian option. And there’s still Japan also to open. We still have a coupl

Netflix Now: American Vandal (Reviewed)

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com - The true crime documentary series, a trend that became popular with Netflix’s phenomenon Making a Murderer and the Serial podcast, has proliferated to the point that, like most trends, it was probably due to have a little wind taken out of it.  Trailers for the Netflix series American Vandal have made the series appear to be just that.  From frequent Funny or Die collaborators writer/creator Dan Perrault and director Tony Yacenda, the serious-looking trailers present a mystery that appeals to the 13-year-old in all of us: who spray-painted penises on 27 teachers’ cars at Hanover High School?  If you chuckled at that question, that was probably the point.  But those who take a chance on American Vandal are in for one of the year’s most pleasant and compelling surprises.

Box Office News: A Scary Clown Continues To Float As A Mother! Struggles

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com - No one could have imagined that IT would be such a massive blockbuster hit. Yes, analysts knew it would do well but the horrific clown movie continues to dominate in its second weekend with another $60 million in revenues. Set against a meager $35 million budget, the film transcends what has been a year of major financial disappointment for all the major studios. In only two weekends of release, the movie has effectively garnered $218 million and is already the 8th highest grossing movie of 2017. In second place was the action adventure flick, American Assassin. The film made roughly $15 million over the three days which doesn't really paint a pretty picture for the launch of a new franchise. Reviews have been extremely mixed for the movie and it seems to be having a hard time findin

Second Sight: The Dark Tower and the Killing of a Sacred Cow

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com - Diehard fans of literary titan Stephen King rejoiced when it was announced that not only would a treatment of his masterpiece IT would be gracing the silver screen, but that the stars had finally aligned to allow for a feature film of his sprawling, cosmic epic The Dark Tower to be produced in the same year. The last several years have created a dire, dog eat dog climate for blockbusters. The rise of cinematic universes has rewritten the game, making any non-franchise venture an extreme risk, even with the rabid fanbase of an author such as King. This high stakes environment has been compounded by the 24-7 lifestyle of the internet, with aggregate websites, film based communities, and armchair criticism rapidly changing the landscape to a point where a film is either D.O.A. or a master

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies

http://www.spoilerfreemoviesleuth.com -   Jigsaw, the eight film in the horror franchise has several new posters. These new character posters seem to indicate that there may be a cult group dedicated to Jigsaw. This is the first Saw picture in seven years and will premiere on October 27, 2017. The franchise has revolved around John Kramer, who was the original version of the Jigsaw character. Tobin Bell is appearing in some fashion, but it isn't clear on how he will be reprising his role as Kramer. The synopsis is as follows:"Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one man: John Kramer. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade. Or has an apprentice picked up the mantle of Jigsaw, perhaps eve
