Article: What to watch on IFC: “Domino” tonight at 10:15 p.m. ET

Director Tony Scott (best known for “Top Gun” and “True Romance”) always had a knack for the sensational and in “Domino” he cranks it all the way up. The fractured, feverish visual style he mastered in 2004′s “Man on Fire” breathes a frenetic energy into the true-crime tale of Domino Harvey, played by Keira Knightley.…

“Immortals,” reviewed

Article: “Immortals,” reviewed

There are two wars onscreen in “Immortals”: one between armies fighting for control of ancient Greece, and one between a director with an unconventional visual style and the narrative demands of a conventional action blockbuster. The “Greece” of “Immortals” — and you kind of have to put it in quotes because it bears so little…

The cast of “The Expendables 2″ is so badass that they don’t even have to be doing anything in recently released set pictures for us to go over the top in our excitement for the film. A whole slew of photos of the cast hanging out on set (shouldn’t they be filming a movie or…

Article: “Sin City 2″ now has script and financing, says director Robert Rodriguez

After the success of 2005′s “Sin City,” it seemed like only a matter of time before more of Frank Miller’s gloomy, brutal, noir-infused comics made their way to the big screen. But after six years, and the poor reception of Miller’s “Spirit” adaptation, a second “Sin City” has yet to materialize. So imagine our surprise…

Article: What to Watch on IFC: December 13 – 19

As we approach the end of the holiday season, your only job is to stay on Santa’s good side for just one and a half more weeks. That means no kissing the cutie under the mistletoe unless she’s your steady sweetie, no spiking the eggnog unless everyone is a consenting adult, and no singing “Winter…

In 1995′s Bullet, Mickey Rourke stars as a junkie out on parole who takes the buy local mantra very seriously and rips off his neighborhood drug dealer played by Tupac Shakur.

“Iron Man 2″ and “Princess Kaiulani”

Article: “Iron Man 2″ and “Princess Kaiulani”

With the release of “Iron Man 2,” the Marvel Comics franchise is officially two-for-two — two thoroughly competent, occasionally inspired yet ultimately forgettable films that promise sly engagement with real-world anxieties, then set that promise aside in favor of corporate intrigue and endless scenes of robots bashing the crap out of each other. The first…

No Laughing Matter

Article: No Laughing Matter

On the first night of SXSW at the “Predators” sneak preview, someone leaned over to me and asked “Have you been to Comic-Con?” I knew where the question was headed, and although he was speaking specifically about the presentation we were about to see, where no full film was shown and the studio carefully curated…

Seven actors who deserve better.

Article: Seven actors who deserve better.

We’ve all had this experience before — you go to a movie and an actor you’ve never heard of totally blows you away. You expect to see more of him or her, then years go by and you see the movie again on TV and realize you have no idea what happened. (Like, say, almost…

The gloves come off on Heath Ledger.

Article: The gloves come off on Heath Ledger.

It had to happen eventually. The reverential haze surrounding the late Heath Ledger was bound to dispel. And it’s David Thomson, critic, film historian and actor-crazed obsessive who once wrote a whole book about Nicole Kidman in which he gasped over her “gingery pubic hair,” who’s stepped up to bat first. Thomson takes actors and…

Comic-Con: “Iron Man 2″ and Other Funny Business

Article: Comic-Con: “Iron Man 2″ and Other Funny Business

Usually, it’s the crowds at Comic-Con who are calling “bullshit” during the panels, but it was Robert Downey Jr. who pulled the BS card on Jon Favreau when the director introduced footage for “Iron Man 2″ and presented what looked like a cheesy commercial for a used car lot blowout with glimpses of the new…

Judah Friedlander Keeps Truckin’

Article: Judah Friedlander Keeps Truckin’

Comedian-turned-actor Judah Friedlander (“Zoolander,” “American Splendor”) wears a lot of hats, and that’s not to say he’s bogged down with multiple titles. No, if you’re familiar with his stand-up, VH1 appearances — or most likely, his role as sketch comedy writer Frank Rossitano on NBC’s “30 Rock”– you’ve seen his endless array of trucker hats…

Requiem for Another Dreamer

Article: Requiem for Another Dreamer

What can be said, post-Oscar-fuggup, about this sick-hearted anti-American Dream that hasn’t already been said, and kudoed: Darren Aronofsky’s channeling of the Dardennes’ immediacy, Mickey Rourke’s Herculean self-deprecation, both of which currents combining to prove the script’s essential conventionality to be irrelevant, just at a moment in American film in which we had all good…

The Devil and the IFC News Podcast

Article: The Devil and the IFC News Podcast
