  • Blade Runner: The Final Cut

    Blade Runner: The Final Cut (2007)

    Rated R, 117 min. Directed by Ridley Scott. Starring Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer, Daryl Hannah, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, William Sanderson, Joanna Cassidy and Brion James.

    Fantasy Fest Preview: Recut more times than a plastic-surgery junkie, Blade Runner: The Final Cut promises to be exactly what its title promises: director Scott's last word on the subject. Cops and androids fight it out in 21st century L.A. in this Philip K. Dick film adaptation with fabulous art direction. This remastered and subtly rejiggered print is most notable for its inclusion of the "scene with the unicorn," which makes abundantly clear that Ford's blade runner is indeed an android and not a human. The film remains a landmark spectacle.

  • The Divergent Series: Insurgent

    The Divergent Series: Insurgent (2015)

    Rated PG-13, 119 min. Directed by Robert Schwentke. Starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Jai Courtney, Mekhi Phifer, Octavia Spencer, Zoë Kravitz, Ashley Judd, Maggie Q, Tony Goldwyn and Ray Stevenson.

    A more efficient indifference generator than last spring’s Divergent, dutiful follow-up Insurgent spares us a reel’s worth of training montages as young heroine Tris (Woodley) and boyfriend Four (James) remain on the run from the oppressive Jeanine (Winslet), militant ruler of a near-future Chicago where most denizens have been split into five factions: Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. Sound complicated? It’s really not. So long as you know that Tris is the Special One, you’ll be able to keep up with her drawn-out quest to liberate all Chicagoans from their societal shackles. The second in a series of four films derived from Veronica Roth’s three novels (ah, Hollywood math), Insurgent delivers plenty of eye-catching imagery, but in the age of Katniss Everdeen, Tris never stands out as a particularly remarkable YA heroine. With each passing Hunger Games and Maze Runner, she’s merely the same kind of special as everyone else. Read a full review of The Divergent Series: Insurgent.
