Star Wars Episode 7 Set Photos

Over the last week, we’ve seen a bunch of ariel photos of the Star Wars Episode VII captured from Greenham Common set whilst filming the GAMA bunkers. The photos have shown a few X-Wing including a black-colored model, as well as the Millennium Falcon which JJ Abrams later released an official video of. We’ve also seen photos of some of the actors in costume, including a possible reveal of Adam Driver’s role in the movie. Now some new set photos have appeared online, giving us a much much closer view of the props and sets. Also word has come out that the production may have ordered a “DroneShield” to try to prevent these kind of photo leaks.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we remember the lowly cassette tape, get funky with an old school space station, delve into short story, try and make an effort with the family, and look at western music through the eyes of Japan.

Tusk image 1

Kevin Smith‘s Tusk is a prime example of a filmmaker in the midst of reinvention. Every since the disaster that was Cop Out, Smith has been on a quest to become a new director. First he shunned Hollywood and self-distributed Red State, a welcome departure from his off-the-wall comedies of the past. Now he’s delving deep into horror with Tusk, the story of a man named Howard (Michael Parks) who kidnaps a podcaster named Wallace (Justin Long) and attempts to turn him into a Walrus.

Much like Smith’s up-and-down career path, Tusk has a fascinating trajectory. Everything starts off well with the director slowly but surely building a very specific, intriguing and foreboding tone. Even as the story begins to border on the ridiculous and the gore gets exponentially more intense, we buy it because the film has won us over with its sharp writing, well-timed humor, inventive plot and layered storytelling.

Unfortunately, about two-thirds into the movie, Smith apparently saw some brake lights in front of him because the film comes to a screeching halt. It stops being fun so suddenly and so painfully it’s almost unfathomable. Things never quite recover from that narrative roadblock and, by the end, it all feels arbitrary and amateurish. Read More »
