WATCH: Sound City Trailer

Posted By on Fri, Apr 5, 2013 at 9:07 AM

Sound_City_Movie_Poster.jpg
In this week's issue of the Source, we've got a little reveiw on the new documentary Sound City from debut director David Grohl. That's right— the Grohl from Nirvana and Foo Fighters.

It's an inspiring look at the making of some of music best albums as well as a journey forward. In fact, Grohl even puts together a new version of Nirvana with Paul McCartney on lead vocals. How crazy is that?

And while these songs are much too different and lacking the familiar Cobain qulaity to truly be considered an extension of Nirvana— the tracks are still rocking just the same.

Check out the trailer for the movie below or just go watch it on Amazon. A three day rental will run you a measly $3.99. I think your wallet can handle that.

Leia Will Be Back!

Posted By on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 9:52 AM

May the force be with you.
  • May the force be with you.

Prepare your inner child you must. Carrie Fisher has confirmed she will return to the screen as Princess Leia in the upcoming installment of Star Wars.

You can read the piece from Paste Magazine that talks about her confirmation here. OR you can just gaze into those starry eyes and remember a time long long ago and far far away. When Banthas were used for Sand People to ride on instead of having their DNA turn up in intergalactic Taco Bell meat. And when people actually hired Mark Hamill.

Cold? Bored? Go See The Hobbit

Posted By on Tue, Dec 18, 2012 at 9:08 PM

It's finally here.

After the release of trailer in December 2011, and speculation from Tolkien-loving-nerds for the last 10 years, you can finally see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey for yourself and form your own hateful conclusions about how much Peter Jackson is effing up your favorite book series in way too many frames per second. That is, if you have 170 minutes to spare.

Run, Bilbo! Run away from the criticism!

Slow Zombies vs. Fast Zombies

Posted By on Tue, Nov 13, 2012 at 10:36 AM

It’s here.

The trailer for WWZ, the 125 million dollar blockbuster staring Brad Pitt was released this week to massive controversy amongst zombie purists over the content of the film.

Based on Max Brook’s (son of Mel Brooks) zombie apocalypse novel WWZ, the film introduces Pitt as a U.N. employee who must protect his family from the unexplained viral outbreak while traveling the world attempting to stop the pandemic.

The movie has already drawn criticism from fans of the book and zombie purists citing that Brook’s original concept was an oral history composed of personal accounts, rather than the more traditional Hollywood story of personal struggle and sacrifice taken by the film.

On top of the major differences in the book to film translation, these aren’t your run of the mill Romero zombies. They’re effing fast, and the trailer makes them appear somewhat intelligent as they dog-pile along barriers designed to protect the uninfected.

On the resurgence of 28 Days Later style fast moving zombies vs. the classics, Brooks has taken a clear side.

“Slow zombies are a wonderful metaphor for the anxiety of human mortality,” said Brooks, “and fast zombies are gay.”

With the popularity of AMC’s The Walking Dead, and a whole slew of zombie related releases slated for 2013, the brain hungry horrors have become just another example of how Hollywood will eat up, water down, and CGI every classic trope it can get it’s hands on. Zombies are now as culture friendly as pirates and vampires.

Slow zombies or fast zombies? Check out the trailer for WWZ below and decide for yourself.

Nostrafilmus: Catching Fire is Starving for a Director.

Catching Fire needs a tribute.

Posted By on Sat, Apr 7, 2012 at 1:19 AM


 It was bound to happen. Gary Ross, the director of The Hunger Games, has decided that his shaky-cam infused directorial skills are worth more than Lionsgate is willing to pay. On the one hand, The Hunger Games had the third biggest opening weekend of all time, so it's understandable why Ross would want more money. On the other hand, the film had a built-in fan base from the books that was (ahem) hungry for an adaptation. People are going to see Catching Fire regardless of who's directing it. With that said, who would you like to see put their stamp on the world of Panem? I'm pulling for either Alfonso Cuaron (the king of post-apocalyptic dystopian films) or David Cronenberg (because he made The Fly). What say you?

Tim Burton's Dark Shadows

Tim Burton is back in his wheelhouse.

Posted By on Sat, Mar 17, 2012 at 8:00 AM

It looks like the upcoming re-boot of Dark Shadows is going for a much lighter tone than the original series. I guess if you preferred your Barnabus Collins as brooding Jonathan Frid (1960's version) or an even more brooding Ben Cross (1990's version), then the campy route Johnny Depp is taking, then this new film might might be a splash of holy water to your face. Either way, it seems like Tim Burton is back in his wheelhouse. I think it looks delightful. What say you?
