    And speaking of that...

    Telluride Review: Jonathan Glazer's 'Under The Skin' Starring Scarlett Johansson | The Playlist

    Johannson turns out to be perfectly cast, being able to shift from blank alien mode to kittenish seduction without ever letting you see the switch being turned on or off. Her participation won’t likely be enough to get a broad audience to “Under the Skin,” given its somber pacing and downer themes, although stills of the actress's lingerie scenes frankly might help. The denouement, while fitting as well as unexpected, may not be satisfying enough to cause a run on arthouses, either. But a cult audience with a penchant for SF morality tales may warm to this chilly girl-who-fell-to-earth story. [B+]

    THAT is a bummer...
    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    And that's not even what was best about it!
    After 27 viewings of the trailer, I've determined that it is immoral. I will probably have to watch the film to confirm.

    Riddick (2013) Review - Dread Central

    And thankfully Diesel, Twohy and the rest of the gang from Riddick really delivered on their promises to the fans out there, giving us another stunning action-packed horror/sci-fi adventure that proves there's still a lot of R-rated fun to be had at the movies even if the studios don't necessarily think that there is. Far more in line with Pitch Black than Chronicles of Riddick, this latest sequel also feels exactly like the kind of movie I would have spent my summer watching at the drive-in as a kid and there's something to be said for a movie that feels new and yet also feels like it has classic 80's sci-fi DNA coursing through its veins...

    As far as the effects, both practical and visual, are concerned, Riddick looks pretty spectacular, almost like a Frank Franzetta painting come to life- extraordinary creatures and all (albeit the main alien 'baddie' is nowhere near as terrifying as those freaking pterodactyl/bat things from Pitch Black) and there's a ton of great gore to go along with the look of this fantastical world including one gag in particular that should no doubt have everyone in the theatre clapping this weekend.

    With its sci-fi-loving heart in the right place, Riddick is just a total blast and undoubtedly the sequel Chronicles of Riddick should have been; long-time fans of this series will go home happy, and for those of you who had your reservations after the last installment (and justifiably so), Twohy and Diesel's truly infectious admiration and respect for this character and this world will undoubtedly win you over. Riddick may be far from cinematic perfection but it's everything I was hoping for as a fan and my fingers are crossed for more from these guys.

    And, again, the skin factor isn't even on the list. I am damn excited about this.

    Review: 'Riddick' Starring Vin Diesel, Katee Sackhoff, And Karl Urban | The Playlist

    This week's low budget reboot "Riddick" undoes much of the cumbersome mythology that made "Chronicles of Riddick" such a laborious slog, and instead returns it to the meat-and-potatoes format of the first film. The results are much more satisfying, if not wholly so.

    James Cameron Calls 'Gravity' The "Best Space Film Ever"; Plus Watch George Clooney & Sandra Bullock Talk Film At Venice | The Playlist

    In a lengthy Variety piece about the film's, er, tortured route to the big screen, a number of interesting nuggets are uncovered. One of these nuggets was the fact that David Fincher, no stranger to cutting edge techniques and envelope-pushing visual effects, told Cuaron to wait five years so that the technology could be better equipped to handle the film. "We were stubborn and said we're going to make it work," Cuaron told Variety. "But you know what? David was right. It took us 4 Ĺ years."

    Another filmmaker to weigh in on "Gravity," which stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as a pair of astronauts marooned in space after a devastating collision, was "Avatar" director James Cameron who was (wait for it) over the moon for the movie. “I was stunned, absolutely floored,” Cameron said to Variety. “I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time.”
