Redefining the Action Genre: The Lasting Impact of The Matrix and Yuen Woo-Ping

  • Cinelinx
The 90s provided a wealth of action movies from the campy to the iconic. At the tail end of the decade, however, The Matrix came in and changed the way action films appeared on screen and how they were made. Today, I’m taking a look at how it drastically altered the Action Movie genre, the key person behind it.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since the arrival of The Matrix, a film that thoroughly blew my mind with it’s heady concepts and stunning action. As a nerdy kid and a Martial Artist, there were a lot of concepts that spoke specifically to me. As the years have gone by, however, it’s easy to see the impact the film has had on the film industry, in general. Garrett detailed many of these in his article the other week, but I wanted to take the

11 Movies Shot on Smart Phones, from ‘Tangerine’ to ‘High Flying Bird’ (Photos)
Steven Soderbergh wasn’t the first filmmaker to shoot an entire movie on an iPhone, but with his latest film “High Flying Bird” he’s proved yet again that it’s totally possible to have a professional, beautiful looking movie filmed with something that fits in your pocket. Here are some other feature films and a few shorts that have made use of Apple’s flagship smartphone.

High Flying Bird” (2019)

Soderbergh shot “High Flying Bird” on an iPhone 8, which is now capable of filming in 4K resolution. The wealthy and bright realms of power atop expensive restaurants and skyscrapers for high-powered agents is far different than the mood Soderbergh was chasing on “Unsane,” but the film even has a sequence in which the action of a one-on-one basketball match isn’t captured on camera but by teenagers on, what else, their phones.

‘Outlaw King’ Review: Bloody Epic Proves Chris Pine Is Brave of Heart

‘Outlaw King’ Review: Bloody Epic Proves Chris Pine Is Brave of Heart
It starts with a close-up of a candle and ends with flaming debris being flung at a castle wall by a catapult — in terms of kicking off a period-piece epic with a single unbroken shot, you could say that Outlaw King sets a high bar. This serpentine opening sequence establishes that, in 1304, England’s King Edward seizes power over Scotland after an eight-year-rebellion; the regent forces the country’s lords, including former heir-to-the-throne Robert Bruce (Chris Pine), to bend the knee; his son, Prince Edward II (Billy Howle), has an ax,

‘Watchmen’ Co-Creator Dave Gibbons’ Take On HBO Series: It’s “Exciting, Entertaining And Absolutely Worthwhile”

‘Watchmen’ Co-Creator Dave Gibbons’ Take On HBO Series: It’s “Exciting, Entertaining And Absolutely Worthwhile”
Artist Dave Gibbons made comic book history with writer Alan Moore when the two collaborated on Watchmen, the 1986 masterpiece that many hail as the most important work in the history of the medium. Watchmen was so sprawling, so intricately suited to its medium, that it was considered un-adaptable to the screen — but Hollywood tried anyway with a feature film in 2009 by Zack Snyder. The results were, at best, mixed.

Now Hollywood is trying again. Filming has been underway with a 2019 premiere planned for a Watchmen series on HBO from executive producer Damon Lindleof with an A-list cast led by Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson and Louis Gossett Jr.

Gibbons is part of a New York Comic Con panel right now to promote the new adaptation and look back on the magnum opus, but Deadline caught up with him beforehand a quick conversationl.

Gibbons told Deadline he is enthused about the HBO project in part because it is not a straightforward adaptation — it is shares a name with the original work but tells a story that veers away from it and exists on its own.

“The original is something that we always saw as standing alone and it never in our mind required prequels or sequels or homages or pastiches or anything like that,” Gibbons said. “It isn’t that we thought it should be treated with great reverence, it’s just that we thought: If you’ve done something right just leave it alone.”

In recent years, DC Comics returned to the Watchmen universe to publish prequels and supplemental stories following the characters created by Moore and Gibbons. Again the results were mixed, but Gibbons was philosophical about the new visitations to a place many fans consider holy ground.

“I think as happens with all works that are around long enough and are successful enough, that people do want to explore things further. As far as this new one, TV clearly is the medium of the moment. It’s where the preeminent and most exciting areas for telling stories of the moment. The fact that Damon Lindleof has found a way to bring Watchmen into that area and do it with something I consider exciting, entertaining and absolutely worthwhile on the subject matter? I think that’s great.”

Gibbons said this new journey into the dystopian universe where superheroes have dark private lives and are publicly outlawed is the sort of project that is ideal for HBO which has shown with Game of Thrones that it can handle the storytelling expeditions that others consider unmanageable.

“It does pursue the idea of an alternative reality. And that’s essentially what Watchmen was [in its original comics form], an alternate-reality story. I think what’s happening with the TV version is it presents yet another variation. And while I’ve only read the screenplay — and I can’t speak to the tone or the way the things been shot — I’d say the reality it inhabits is one that feels quite authentic. It’s not here, it’s not now, it’s something slightly sideways.”

The original comics were published in 1986, and they present a story opens in New York City in that same year. As the epic unfolds it gradually reveals that its characters live in a very different version of America with a history that followed a different course. The differences can be traced to the costumed heroes who, over decades, tilted geo-political affairs and culture in ways both dramatic and subtle.

“Once we got carte blanche to create the characters we wanted to create [and tell a story separated from the familiar DC Comics mythology] we thought: ‘Well we might as well create our own world and our own reality to fit the story,’ ” Gibbons said. “That let us investigate things that had never been addressed in superhero comics before. Clearly, if there was a Superman in the world — or an equivalent counterpart, like our Dr. Manhattan — the world and its history would be completely different. and in ways that were disturbing and disquieting.”

Watchmen isn’t the only strange and unnerving vision of America that Gibbons co-created with a legendary collaborator. Gibbons and Frank Miller teamed up for Give Me Liberty, which in 1990 introduced Martha Washington, a young African-American native of the Chicago projects whose odyssey takes her through the war and tumult of surreal America where corporations have standing armies.

Gibbons and Miller have returned to the character over the years to chronicle her life and times and, among comics fans and Hollywood producers, the property is one that feels ripe for a screen adaptation. Asked about the prospects, Gibbons chuckled and measured his words.

“I have to be careful how much I say but to answer your question I think all your Martha dreams may come true and reasonably soon,” he said. “There’s nothing signed and guaranteed at this minute but we are all very excited.”

Criminal Minds' Erica Messer Q & A: The 300th Episode, the Show's Future & More

  • TVfanatic
Erica Messer is the unsung hero of the Behavioral Analysis Unit.

But she isn't an evidence clerk or a forensics geek.

She has also written the premiere for Criminal Minds Season 14, which airs Wednesday night. The episode “300” is, surprise, the series' 300th episode, and follows up on a cult's abduction of Garcia and Reid on Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 22.

Messer talks about the allure of her show, what to expect this season and what its future might hold.

As usual, Criminal Minds got a later renewal from CBS. Doesn't that waiting game get old for you?

Review: The Predator is Brutal, Messy Fun

  • DailyDead
Part brutal action film, part quirky comedy, regardless of how you divide it, there’s no denying that The Predator is 100 percent a Shane Black film, albeit one of his most uneven directorial efforts in some time. This latest chapter in the Predator universe feels like there are two movies happening simultaneously, often at odds with each other, but as a whole, there are a lot of aspects to The Predator that really won me over as a longtime fan of this series. It may not be nearly as polished at the original Predator, but Black still delivers up an experience that’s far more entertaining than either Alien vs. Predator movie (and I say that as someone who genuinely likes the first one), and manages to find new ways to build on the mythology of the eponymous creatures, without ever feeling like he’s shoe-horning in ideas just to

Netflix Teams Up With Frank Miller to Develop a King Arthur Series Based on His Cursed Novel

Last week we learned that legendary comic book writer and artist Frank Miller would be developing an illustrated novel called Cursed, which is based on the King Arthur legend, Lady of the Lake. Well, Netflix has already picked up the rights to the book and they will be developing it as a 10-episode TV series.

Review: Devil's Gate, a Likable Mix of Horror, Mystery and Sci-Fi

I confess to a high level of appreciation for low-budget films that defy easy categorization, such as Devil's Gate. The opening sequence resembles that of a backwoods horror experience that will be grungy and nasty, leaving behind a trail of dead bodies and queasy stomachs. Yet even in such familiar territory, director Clay Staub deviates from the norm. Working from an original screenplay credited to himself and Peter Aperlo, Staub tamps down the explicit bloodshed in that scene and then moves quickly to establish an atmosphere of mystery and possible suspense. This appears to be Staub's feature debut, but he has experience as a second unit director for Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead and 300, as well as the latest remake of The Thing....
