Movie review: Percy Jackson and the sea of drowning
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 3 years
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters is the second movie based on the popular series Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan. The first movie The Lightning Thief (2010) received negative reviews from fans of the book series and moviegoers alike, and it was expected that the sequel would not disappoint. Admittedly, Sea of Monsters is a slightly better cinematic interpretation. But don’t be surprised if the desire to leave the theatre midway persists throughout the movie. Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) is the son of a human and the Greek god Poseidon, who rules the waters. Along with other half-gods, Percy lives in Camp Half-Blood, which is protected from other mystical beings by a magical tree. (It was born of the sacrifice of chief god Zeus’s daughter, to save the other half-gods). The magic tree is, however, poisoned, leaving the half-bloods vulnerable. And they need the extreme healing properties of the Golden Fleece to heal it. But this is ea ...

MTV News - over 3 years
This one goes out to all you Lermaniacs. In anticipation of the upcoming release of the long-awaited "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters," Hollywood Crush has gotten its sticky little fingers on a super-fresh profile banner featuring the titular half-blood—and let's just say the son of Poseidon is totally living up to the Greek-god hype. Logan Lerman reprises his role as Percy Jackson in the sequel, in which he and friends Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), Grover (Brandon T.

'Texas Chainsaw' Producer Says 3D Glasses Need To Evolve Or Disappear
Business Insider - about 4 years
Earlier this month, we told you that 3D movies aren't going anywhere just yet.  Our reasoning then, and remains now, based on our conversation with one of the minds behind one of the most recent films to be made in 3D—the revival of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." We spoke with the film's producer Carl Mazzocone extensively on the debate over the future of 3D. Business Insider: When does 3D work and when doesn't it? Carl: A lot of producers have exploited 3D unnecessarily to capture that extra little [sur]charge at the box office. Certain movies clearly should not be 3D. There's no true benefit of, I think, having a conventional love story in 3D. But, in a horror movie where there's action and you're trying to make it as frightening as possible, and of course you're wielding a three foot chainsaw, you have a situation where you can actually enhance the situation by making a 3D movie.  Technically, when you have an animated movie that’s one of the best 3D [films] you can get becau ...

Re-Casting Couch: We Take Another Shot At 'The Selection'
MTV News - about 4 years
Oh, "The Selection." We just can't quit you! Fans were predictably thrilled by last year's news that Kiera Cass' YA novel, about a group of teenage girls in post-apocalyptic competition for the love of a prince, was greenlit for development on The CW—and understandably devastated when the project got shot, then shelved indefinitely by the powers that be. But don't start recording your tearful post-mortem confession in the limousine just yet, y'all: As we reported yesterday, "The Selection" is getting another shot, and this time, they swear that they're committed. And we believe them! (Just don't hurt us, CW. We've been hurt so many times before!) HOWEVER. With all the upheaval, "The Selection" lost its leading lady: Aimee Teegarden has moved on to other projects. And that means that the field is once again wide open for a young, up-and-coming actress to snag some steady work! So join us on the casting couch, won't you, as we offer up our picks to play heroine America Singer. Ale ...

San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
Now Playing Amour This is without doubt some kind of good movie - about the rapid decline of a woman in her 80s (Emmanuelle Riva) - and a memorable cinematic experience that you will probably never regret. Anna Karenina Joe Wright's misguided and miscast version of the Tolstoy classic uses a host of distancing devices - namely doing the movie as though it took place on a stage - but the effect is to render something cold that should have been warm. Argo That Ben Affleck can direct a film this smart, this gripping, is no surprise any longer, but still - his account of a rescue effort during the Iran hostage crisis is as precise as it is suspenseful. Affleck plays the CIA operative who aims to fly out six Americans posing as a film crew for a fake movie. California Solo This indie drama is mainly worth seeing as a showcase for appealing Scottish actor Robert Carlyle, who plays a has-been rocker reduced to scratching out a living on an organic farm in Southern Ca ...

Dan Persons: Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast: Texas Chainsaw 3D
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Blood runs thick in Texas Chainsaw 3D, both in its usual, slaughterhouse context, but also in a more symbolic way. Yes, the venerable horror franchise has caught up with the rest of mainstream film, and now it's all about family, as a surviving -- and hitherto unknown -- member of the murderous Sawyer clan (Alexandra Daddario) returns to Texas to claim an inheritance from a similarly previously unseen grandmother, and discovers that it includes a living legacy in the form of a certain, Leatherfaced, chainsaw-wielding relative. Cinefantastique Online's Steve Biodrowski, Lawrence French, and I dipped into the bloodbath that is the first genre release of 2013 and come out, if not impressed, at least appreciative that the film isn't quite the car wreck that usually gets shunted into the first weekend of January.

Mike Ryan: Is Everyone In 'Texas Chainsaw' A Jerk?
Huffington Post - about 4 years
The first wide-release movie of 2013 is Texas Chainsaw 3D. Billed as a direct sequel to the original Tobe Hooper film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Texas Chainsaw 3D picks up 20 years after the events depicted in that film. With 2012's Oscar contenders out of the way, that leaves us answering every question that you could have about Texas Chainsaw 3D. Q: Is Texas Chainsaw 3D a movie about a logger? A: No, it is about a mass murderer who uses a power tool to kill people. Q: Will there be a sequel using this "state, power tool" motif? Will there be an Iowa Weedwacker 3D or Vermont Snowblower 3D movie? A: As much as I would like to see those movies and learn how either of those devices could possibly be used as a weapon, no. Q: Does this have anything to do with the character of Chainsaw from Summer School? A: Texas Chainsaw 3D is part of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise of films. Even though the word "massacre" has been left out of the title, for some re ...

Joy Adaeze: European Line SuperTrash Debuts in Downtown NYC
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Downtown NYC has a hip new neighbor: European fashion brand SuperTrash, brainchild of Dutch designer, Olcay Gulsen. On the boutique's opening night, fashion insiders gathered in droves to celebrate the event thrown by Interview Magazine at the store's 29 Prince Street venue. Guests included SuperTrash fan Angela Simmons, 30 Rock actress Katrina Bolden, actress Alexandra Daddario and bloggers Natalie Suarez (Natalie Off Duty), Christina Caradona (Trop Rouge) and Kimberly Pesch (Eat. Sleep. Wear.). DJ May Kwon was on hand to keep the party going. I spoke for a bit with the woman of the hour, Olcay Gulsen, who was decked out in a bodycon LBD from her namesake collection and a lust worthy pair of stilettos that she had just designed in Portugal two weeks ago. Gulsen gave me the lowdown on the SuperTrash empire and how she felt about her line's new NYC digs.
