Join us next week and, in the interim, …

Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) takes on mob boss Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong).

Cinefantastique’s Horror, Fantasy & Science Fiction Podcast returns with a blow-by-blow knock-down debate regarding the merits (or lack thereof) in the new comic-book superhero fantasy KICK ASS, starring Aaron Johnson, Chloe Moretz, and Nicolas Cage.

Juan Jose Campanella on THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES

Public Threat: A criminal (Javier Godino, left) delivers a not-so-subtle message to public servants Soledad Villamil and Ricardo Darin in the Oscar-winning foreign language film THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES.

Seems to be some confusion about the title of this. For the record, according to the front page of the production notes, it’s THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES. Not THE SECRET OF THEIR EYES or even THE SECRET IN HER EYES, which is the way the video file for the trailer is labeled. So I …

THE SQUARE and THE SUN BEHIND THE CLOUDS

No Clear Solutions: Exiled Tibetans protest in THE SUN BEHIND THE CLOUDS

So what have we been doing for the past couple of weeks? Pulling our hair out, what’s left of it. Making repeated calls to Verizon. Hosting a visit from their friendly and professional service person (really, no sarcasm there, the guy was good). Being granted the privilege of shelling out for a replacement modem and …

ATTENTION LISTENERS IN GREAT BRITAIN: Help Send MMP to Camp!

Okay, let’s be blunt about this: I know nothing about comic actor Omid Djalili or screenplay writer David Baddiel, or their new film, THE INFIDEL, which is currently running in Great Britain. But the plot — about a British Muslim who discovers he was actually born Jewish — has potential and, more to the point, …

Delay in THE SUN BEHIND THE CLOUDS Episode

For reasons known only to Verizon (and maybe not even to them), I’ve lost my ability to upload files of any significant size, and so can’t get the interview with directors Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam discussing their new documentary, THE SUN BEHIND THE CLOUDS, up in time for the film’s debut weekend at Film …
