‘Whiplash’ Review: Miles Teller & J.K. Simmons Beat A Bloody Inspiring Drum

whiplash movie review image

“There are no two words in the English language more harmful than ‘Good Job,'” that’s a line that is used in Damien Chazelle‘s Whiplash, and it couldn’t be more true. A film’s perfection defined by the the characters’ search of it is truly rare, and to watch it play out it is bloody strumming glory is both intense and a revelation.

But 2014 has been plagued by mediocrity, films that just settle for the “good job” and nothing more. Bad writing, an oversaturation of visual effects, and a strive to push 40 or so plots for sequels or potential ones into a two hour movie, that’s all we have been getting as of late. Sure there are a few good film’s that squeak by and go against the grain, but we haven’t seen anything as inspiring or as refreshing as Whiplash. Hit the jump for the full review. [Read more...]

A lot of movie-based websites offer uninteresting things like character profiles, trailers that you can get off youtube, wallpaper images, etc. Social media has proven to be a more useful tool to help market a film. We’ve seen many successful viral marketing campaigns being carried on on Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram, and more. But there are just some films that beg to be marketed strictly on websites. And that’s what we are getting with Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar.

Google and Paramount Pictures have teamed up for a one of a kind partner ship to help promote Interstellar. Through educational pieces, user-generated content, and Google Hangouts with the cast, we will start to see more and more exclusive content from the film on Google sites. Hit the jump to learn more.

Viral Video: SNL Parody Trailer For ‘The Faults In Our Stars 2: The Ebola In Our Everything’

the faults in our stars 2 the ebola in our everything

No film no matter how massively popular, critically acclaimed, or profitable, is safe from comedic parodies. Last week, SNL spoofed Marvel Studios’ success with a number of parody trailers based on Guardians of the Galaxy. Now they are doing it again, but this time for the teen sob story hit The Faults In Our Stars.

But just doing another spoof of the trailer but with random terminal illnesses would be some what of a repetitive theme, so Sarah Silverman and Taran Killam did one with the focused on more current affairs: the Ebola virus outbreak. It only seems fitting to call the trailer The Faults In Our Stars 2: The Ebola In Our Everything. The trailer is almost a mirror image of the film it is parodying, only with that humorous SNL touch and a shift in the illness. It’s actually quite funny.

Smart phone apps are a fun way to help promote the film. While some of them are just generic puzzle games that lose its entrainment value in a matter of hours, others can be unconventional by actually being fun. But some aren’t even games, some are actually promotional material that’s self-aware going under names or titles used in the films, and if you are not familiar with the source material, it will fly under your radar. Kind of like the Amazing Amy series to help promote Gone Girl, which launched on smart phone apps yesterday.

To coincide with the release of David Fincher‘s Gone Girl, Fox released art work from the Amazing Amy series. The series of art is actually illustrated cover art for books written by the parents of the missing titular character, Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike). Check out some of the artwork below. [Read more...]
