A wary loner astride a beaten down motorcycle linking up with groups of survivors in a world awash in the hordes of subhuman monsters that were once humanity — at first blush, “Days Gone” sounds and looks a lot like the early seasons of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.” But spend any time with the game […]

PHOENIXVILLE, PA—Acknowledging that he is, after all, at a difficult age, sources at the Golden Living Center nursing home confirmed Monday that local senior Frank Gardner has been pretty checked out during his final year. “All he does lately is zone out and stare off blankly, so you can tell Frank wants to just…


Is Coralie Fargeat’s stylish rape-revenge shocker a feminist take on the genre, or just more of the same brutality and bloodshed?

Is the rape-revenge genre just a way to bring the dual spectacles of rape and violence to a male audience? This is a French movie from first-time feature director and screenwriter Coralie Fargeat, and there is no doubt that it is smart, gruesomely violent and stylishly made. The DayGlo colours in the burning sun are as fierce as the retributive action brought by the plot. It has been hailed as a subversive feminist take on this form – although it is open to question whether the film would look all that different if it were directed by a man.

Revenge is not unlike Kill Bill, a modern classic that Uma Thurman has placed in a new light by disclosing what the director put her through in its making. The story concerns Richard (Kevin Janssens), a rich, arrogant type who has brought an extramarital girlfriend to his luxury chalet in the desert for a weekend’s hunting. This is super-sexy Jen (Matilda Lutz) who knows he is married, doesn’t care and enjoys being lusted over. But then arrive his two ugly incel buddies: Stan (Vincent Columbe) and Dimitri (Guillaume Bouchède) who slaver over Jen and envy Richard’s alpha-male prerogative. When he is out one morning, things take a brutal course. And then Jen, with superhuman or supernatural strength (again, very like the Bride in Kill Bill) sets out to...

"He was playing music, making jokes, had slogans and rhymes he kept saying," said a survivor.

If you're a fan of the recently canceled series Lucifer, I've got some good news for you! FOX will be airing two bonus episodes of the series that were already shot earlier this spring. They were meant to be a part of the fourth season, but since Season 4 is no longer happening, the network will air these two episodes because they've already been completed.

The standalone episodes will air back-to-back next Monday, May 28, at 8/7c, which is two weeks after the series finale, which left on a cliffhanger. 

The first episode to air is called “Boo Normal,” in it "Lucifer and the team investigate the murder of a child psychiatrist, while Ella thinks about a big childhood secret that she’s been hiding. House alum guest-stars Housealum Charlyne Yi as a very special friend of Ella’s who just might be a ghost."

The second episode is called “Once Upon a Time,” and in that one "Lucifer’s mom creates an alternate dimension in which Lucifer now lives in a world where he not only has never met Chloe, but is granted the freedom of choice. American Gods author Neil...

LEGO has really hit their stride over the past decade when it comes to making incredible building block sets that are cleverly designed. That’s especially true when it comes to bringing characters, vehicles and settings from our favorite movies to life. They’ve gotten some help from LEGO Ideas with the likes of the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 and the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future. Now they have their own creations for these franchises and more that you can now build and collect yourself.

Rather than stick with the traditional LEGO sets, the building block company has a more recent BrickHeadz line that has taken off. They’re stylized versions of characters from movies, TV and comics that you build with LEGO pieces and can display on your shelf. Think of them as the Funko POP versions of LEGO characters. And recently, they’ve delivered some new editions for Ghostbusters, The Incredibles, Jurassic World, Back to the Future, Harry Potter and more.

Ghostbusters LEGO BrickHeadz

First of all, this is one of the most recent additions to the BrickHeadz line. If you’ve got the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 LEGO set already, you can set up a slimed version of Dr. Peter Venkman right next to it. You also get to build the entity responsible for the ectoplasmic...

"Elisha Christian on 'Columbus' and 'Everything Sucks!'": The Spirit Award-nominated cinematographer chats with me about his acclaimed work on Kogonada's 2017 film and this year's acclaimed Netflix series.

“[Indie Outlook:] How did you and Kogonada develop the extraordinary shot of Jin (John Cho) and Eleanor (Parker Posey), framing them in a mirror in a way that gives us a sense of their history. We feel as if we are peering into a reflection of their past.’ [Christian:] ‘That scene took place in the same inn where Jin was staying. There were only four or five guest rooms in the whole inn, and we had our pick of which room we wanted to shoot in. That location is so visually interesting — you could shoot a whole movie there. When we saw the mirrors, we knew where we wanted to place the camera, though my AC couldn’t even stand next to it to pull focus. She had to sit underneath the camera while reaching up above her head to pull focus because the space was so slim. We even had to pull everything off the sides of the camera in order to fit in that tiny area without catching it in a reflection. We saw that if John walks out and stops at a certain point after Eleanor basically kicks...
