DVD Review – Anthropoid (2016)

Anthropoid, 2016.

Directed by Sean Ellis

Starring Cillian Murphy, Jamie Dornan, Charlotte Le Bon, Anna Geislerova and Toby Jones.

Synopsis:

Based on a true story, Anthropoid details the successful assassination of SS General, Reinhard Heydrich during World War II by a small group of Czech resistance fighters deployed by parachute near Prague.

In line with the thematic nuances of World War II dramatic epics, Anthropoid employs the same use of dynamic cinematography to give the impression of scope in the context of a War drama. The pale pastel palette for the film emphasises the period wonderfully and reinforces the classic espionage style that suits this film perfectly. From the first frame the viewer is immediately inundated with the same urgency the characters experience when dropped behind enemy lines, which carries well enough throughout the entirety of Ellis’ film. Despite there being such little action, each scene continues from one to the

16 things we learned from Dave Chappelle's revealing GQ interview

16 things we learned from Dave Chappelle's revealing GQ interview
Dave Chappelle gave "his first in-depth interview in nearly a decade" to GQ this month, and in it he addresses his abrupt "Chappelle's Show" departure, TV binge-watching habits, impressive selfie collection and whatever the hell is going on with D'Angelo's answering machine, among other topics. Check out our full roundup below. 1. Despite all but turning his back on show business for almost ten years, he still clearly enjoys entertaining people. In addition to playing ten sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall over the summer, GQ interviewer Mark Anthony Green notes that the comedian is driven to put on a show even outside a performance context: "He's also toting around a small, very loud portable speaker that is connected to his phone. And once in a while he'll just press play for a few seconds. The sudden blaring of A Tribe Called Quest makes the guests at the Beverly Hills

Hot Toys Captain America 2 Stealth Suit and Steve Rogers Figure

Hoy Toys has unveiled two new collectible action figures for Captain America: The Winter Solider. The first is the Stealth S.T.R.I.K.E. Suit and the second is the Captain America and Steve Rogers set. Both of the figures are awesome, and I would love to add both to my collection.

"I joined S.H.I.E.L.D. to protect people." Marvel Studios’ latest superhero hit – Captain America: The Winter Soldier has already started landing in theatres around the world and has took the top box office spot in many opening countries! In this exciting film, Captain America has joined S.H.I.E.L.D. and teamed up with Black Widow and Falcon to battle dangerous threats. Hot Toys is thrilled to present the highly-anticipated new 1/6th scale Captain America Collectible Figure in Stealth S.T.R.I.K.E. suit.

Robert Redford's 'Alexander Pierce' Profiled in Captain America: The Winter Soldier Featurette

"The price of freedom is high."

Besides being box office bonanzas, one of the indicators that superhero movies are not simply a fad but a legitimate genre with staying power is the high caliber of the actors and actresses the movies are able to attract. Ranker did the math for us, tallying 117 (!) Oscar-nominated actors who played comic book characters, with the The Dark Knight Rises boasting the most winners with four, five if you count Anne Hathaway's subsequent win. The latest Oscar-winner to join a superhero movie is legendary actor Robert Redford, who takes a rare turn as a, shall we say, character with murky morals in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

In anticipation of the movie's domestic release this Friday, Marvel has released a new featurette focusing on Redford's character, Alexander Pierce, head of the World Security Council. The video features some behind-the-scenes footage from the making of

Watch: Mayhem follows the Winter Soldier in 'Captain America 2' TV spot

  • Hitfix
(Cbr) Whether it's new footage of Sebastian Stan kicking ass as the Winter Soldier, Nick Fury's (Samuel L. Jackson) S.H.I.E.L.D.-issue SUV getting blown sky-high or watching Anthony Mackie take flight -- literally -- as the Falcon, there's a lot to get excited about for Marvel's newest TV spot for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." While the full 60-second teaser has some recycled previously-seen footage, there's also plenty of new tidbits -- including a look at S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters, fresh footage of Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce, and both Captain America (Chris Evans) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) testifying before some kind of government committee. "The price of freedom is high," says Cap in the teaser. "And it's a price I'm willing to pay." Check out the full TV spot below. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" debuts April 4.

Fnc's Eric Bolling reflects on his Church's Pope Francis

  • Pop2it
Every weekday morning, Fox News Channel anchor Eric Bolling arrives for work in midtown Manhattan. But before he digs into the meat of his day preparing to be on the panel for the afternoon roundtable show "The Five," he makes time for an authority even higher than Fnc boss Roger Ailes.

"I drive into the city," he tells Zap2it, "park my car, come up to my office, turn on the computer, make sure there's no fires that need to be put out. Then I put my jacket back on and literally walk over to St. Patrick's Cathedral, light the candles, come back. I don't do it because I'm supposed to do it; I do it because I like it. It makes me feel good, knowing that I've done that.

"I light five candles. One, two, three, four, five -- get it?"

Justified’s Walton Goggins to Guest Star on ‘Unsupervised’

As if Gary and Joel’s innocent ways weren’t already under attack by bad influences, rival high schools and even lice (last week), Unsupervised is opening its doors to Emmy-nominated actor, Walton Goggins, (The Shield), who guest stars in this week’s episode, 107: The Magic of Science. It’s science fair time and the boys look to a psychic named Bruce Lindsay to help them out. The episode is written by John Carcieri and David Hornsby.

Goggins is no stranger to doing voice work having recorded for the 1996 PC classic video game, Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom and for The Shield video game, which was released in 2007. Goggins can be currently seen each week on Justified playing opposite Timothy Olyphant as the calculated and evil Boyd Crowder. Goggins will also be seen in several 2012 films including G.I. Joe: Retaliation as Warden Nigel James, Officer Down, Wells A.

Arthouse Audit: 'Get Low' Gets Up

In its third weekend in theaters, Get Low claimed the top gross among limited releases, interrupting The Girl Who Played with Fire's reign. Among new releases, Bollywood movie Peepli Live led the way, while Sundance winner Animal Kingdom had a tame launch. More than doubling its theater count to 53, Get Low was up 72 percent to $376,781, ranking 19th on the overall weekend chart. The Robert Duvall-Bill Murray comedy had a decent $7,109 per theater average and has thus far made $826,013. The Girl Who Played with Fire may have been knocked down a notch, but it still held well, off just 23 percent to $365,484 at 166 locations. Through its sixth weekend, the sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has earned $5.2 million. Peepli Live finished in third place among limited releases, debuting to $350,054 at 64 locations. This was on the lower end for Bollywood movies this summer, trailing Kites, Raajneeti, Raavan and I Hate Luv Storys.

Neshoba: The Price Of Freedom Q&A Part II: Edgar Ray Killen and the “Mississippi Burning” Murders

Exhuming the bodies of civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner (top); Baptist preacher and convicted murderer Edgar Ray Killen (bottom) Neshoba: The Price Of Freedom Q&A with Filmmakers Micki Dickoff, Tony Pagano: Part I Would you say most people in Mississippi (and in Neshoba County) believe that justice has been served, or…? Is there a "color line" (or perhaps a "political line"?) dividing people in the way they see the outcome of the Killen trial? Dickoff: Many Neshoba Countyans, blacks and whites, are relieved and proud that some measure of justice was meted out in this case. However, some white citizens believe the trial of an 80-year-old man was a waste of time and money and another stain on Mississippi. Ben Chaney sums it up best: “It may take another 50 years before all these people die out” for real change to happen. Race

Neshoba: The Price Of Freedom: Q&A with Filmmakers Micki Dickoff, Tony Pagano

Directed, produced, and edited by Micki Dickoff and Tony Pagano, Neshoba: The Price of Freedom offers a unique peek into the mind of an unrepentant racist, Edgar Ray Killen. Killen, a Baptist preacher and the leader of a group of Klansmen accused of brutally murdering civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner in Neshoba County, Miss., in June 1964, is the only person ever convicted of the heinous crime known as the "Mississippi Burning" murders. "The tools used to tell the tale (particularly old newsreels, family photos and seldom-seen crime scene and autopsy photos) are masterfully employed," says Ernest Hardy in the L.A. Weekly. "Within the first 15 minutes, Dickoff and Pagano milk tear ducts (iconic newsreel footage of a young Ben Chaney weeping as he sings ‘We Shall Overcome’ at his brother’s funeral has lost none of its power to devastate), and then use that

Film: Review: Neshoba: The Price Of Freedom

The 1964 murder of civil-rights activists Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, and James Chaney outside Philadelphia, Mississippi—the seat of Neshoba county—brought the deadly intractability of the segregated South home to many, particularly in the North. Nearly half a century later, Micki Dickoff and Tony Pagano’s documentary Neshoba: The Price Of Freedom, brings it home again with determination, if not much invention. Goodman and Schwerner, both Jewish activists from New York, met up with Chaney, a young but experienced organizer in Mississippi’s African-American community, as part of the Freedom Summer, a concerted effort to register blacks who were ...

Doc Talk: 'Bright Leaves' and 'Neshoba: The Price of Freedom'

Doc Talk: 'Bright Leaves' and 'Neshoba: The Price of Freedom'
For this week's Doc Talk I'd like to spotlight two highly recommended films involving the South: Ross McElwee's personal ancestry exploration from 2003, Bright Leaves, and Micki Dickoff and Tony Pagano's civil rights film Neshoba: The Price of Freedom, which finally gets a theatrical release this Friday (in NYC; next month it opens in La).

The reason I revisited McElwee's film is primarily because of the recent death of Oscar-winning screen legend Patricia Neal (Hud), who appears briefly in the doc. But it also ended up fitting in somewhat with Neshoba, because both films deal with a Southern history, both concern events that previously inspired fictionalized Hollywood movie plots (Bright Leaf for the former, Mississippi Burning the latter) and both follow modern stories relative to the historical material.

As for Neshoba, aside from the fact that it opens this weekend, I was intrigued about the film's subject matter
