A prequel to John Carpenter’s classic horror film of the same name, The Thing is a haunting survival thriller intended to evoke the same eerie vibes. Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., The Thing stars Joel Edgerton as Sam Carter, a military vet and helicopter pilot, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Kate Lloyd, a scientist in a Norwegian Antarctic research crew who uncovers a mysterious ship belonging to an alien species buried deep below the surface of the ice. As the insidious alien parasite awakes and latches onto the isolated Arctic outpost team, they turn on each other and fight their own paranoia with the single goal of survival.
These classic Looney Tunes characters are making their way to the big screen in this new live-action/computer-animated legal comedy. After the many failed attempts to get the Roadrunner, Wile E. Coyote decides it's not his fault... it's ACME's, and all the malfunctioning products they've sold him over the years. So, he hires a human lawyer (Will Forte) to take them to court.
A fascinating documentary, Pamela, A Love Story is a reevaluation of Pamela Anderson, one of the most compelling celebrities of the '90s. Directed by Ryan White, it combines diary readings and interviews with Anderson herself alongside time spent with her sons to create an incredible portrait of a misunderstood human being.
One of the O.G. titans of stand-up, the late-great George Carlin left far more than your traditional mark on the entertainment world. A constantly called-upon influence for today’s leading comic legends, the man’s talents are on full-display in George Carlin: Life is Worth Losing. Jam-packed with Carlin’s rapid-fire and astute commentary on the continually-crumbling Planet Earth, this humorously bleak eulogizing remains as relevant today as the maestro’s words were nearly 20 years ago.
The Brooklyn singer (and daughter of Bobby McFerrin) conjures moments of spine-tingling atmosphere, but struggles to truly distinguish herself. On her debut album, McFerrin supplements her intricate vocal landscapes with beats and synths, matching her beautiful voice with tastefully muted and often vaguely ominous backdrops that nod to a variety of genres: the breakbeat-backed Testify has echoes of trip-hop; Stay Away (From Me) sports strains of piano house; elsewhere there are glimpses of post-dubstep, gospel and electro-pop. The effect is gorgeous, atmospheric – at times spine-tinglingly so – and undeniably cool.
