Chances are if you were there, CBGB is nothing like Miller's film depicts it to http://dilatv.livejournal.com/6757.html be. In a perfect world, the motion picture version of this rock tale would be a grittier and seedier one rooted in a more down to earth reality. But, that wasn't Miller's intention. At the red carpet theater premier of the movie, Miller introduced the film by disclaiming, "I want you guys to have a read more... good time. I told the sound guys to crank it up so you could all have fun." From a musical standpoint the movie was just that, fun; even if it did seem counterintuitive to the then elusive punk scene it helped spawn. When "Psycho Killer" starts playing or Sting's voice blares through the speakers during "Roxanne" it's nearly impossible to not get excited by it. Miller isn't trying to recreate CBGB precisely; he's putting this subject on a platform that the insiders will get and the outsiders will be compelled to watch.
In one poignant scene, Han's father stands outside Jinsung's factory gate seeking witnesses who could testify in court about working conditions. Suddenly he is surrounded by three buses that blast dance music. Co-producer Daniel Park said the dramatic scene was based on an incident outside a Samsung factory involving two buses. Samsung denied the bus incident occurred. "The scenes depicted in this film are not a factual representation of actual events," it said. "Since 2012 Samsung has reached out several times to the families of former employees and remains committed to active dialogue" Director Kim Taeyun said "Another Family" was inspired by a 2011 news article about Hwang's father who won the court victory after a seemingly hopeless battle against South Korea's largest corporation.

A Hasbro rep did clarify that the looks of the figures, which include a new costume for Spider-Man, Black Cat, Venom's off-spring Carnage, The Beetle, Electro, and even the Green Goblin may come from either their movie line or their comic book inspired line. However, he also clarified that all of the figures are approved by the movie studio, and if not the exact look of the character, at the very least don't conflict with how the character might look in the movie. That means that though you may not see Carnage or the Green Goblin in ASM2 (they, along with Beetle, seem to be sporting their look from the "Ultimate Spider-Man" comic book), these figures also aren't out of line with how they could appear onscreen. Or maybe they're exactly how they appear onscreen. Either way! Next up was "Captain America: The Winter Solider." Our man in Hasbro was quick to clear up that both the Hydra Soldier and Mandroid (gigantic robot battle suit) were a comic book look, and not directly from the movie.
The other standout is Chilean martial artist Marko Zaror as the bad guys enforcer named wait for it Zaror. Dude is over 6 feet tall but moves incredibly fast, like a much smaller man, and his combat scenes are genuinely thrilling to watch. Things explode, heads are removed, and mayhem ensues. Also, a guy in a business suit and a Mexican wrestling mask shoots a laser gun, so you can check that off your cinematic bucket list. Theres a vaguely political subplot about the war on drugs in Machete Kills, but the movies overall cartoonishnes makes its predecessor look like Schindlers List. Look for Amber Heard as Miss San Antonio, Machetes government handler (as it were); Sofia Vergara as a deadly brothel madam (is there any other kind?); and cameos by Cuba Gooding Jr., Walt Goggins and Lady Gaga. And yes, that is Spy Kids star Alexa Vega as one of the hookers.
MOVIE REVIEW: The Passion of the Capt?n
Dont get me wrong: I am sure Captain Phillips will be emotionally scarred for life, and I am pretty certain that the maritime industry learned some lessons from the experience. But in terms of entertainment, the whole story of this mans kidnapping and rescue has the caliber of a made-for-television Hallmark drama. Tom Hanks, who is without doubt one of the greatest actors of his generation, delivers an Oscar-worthy performance during a short scene when after the ordeal he is examined by a doctor aboard a U.S. Navy ship. The way he breaks down, the way he looks lost and cries, shocked beyond words, emotionally shattered, is just fantastic, one of the best performances Ive seen in my life. Besides that fledging scene, theres little Kim Kardashian measurements and weight else truly remarkable about the film. The Somali pirates look positively like what I imagine Somali pirates would look like, but their acting Kim Kardashian fan is kind of bland. The same goes for the Navy SEALs, who look the part (strong, professional, efficient) but are a bit one-dimensional.
