FRANCESCA UK DVD RELEASE – JULY 3RD 2017 | #horrorfilm

b15a7362-2eba-406a-b897-f86be8a515d1 2ABSOLUTE GIALLO “FRANCESCA” GETS UK RELEASE

Jinga Films and Matchbox Films are pleased to announce the UK release of Nicolas Onetti’s giallo homage FRANCESCA which will be released on Bluray, DVD and VOD from July 3rd 2017.

A psychopath stalks the city cleaning it of “impure and damned souls”. Moretti and Succo are the detectives tasked with resolving these “Dantesque” crimes. The secret is eventually revealed by Francesca, a little girl who was abducted 15 years ago, but has now reappeared.

Like Barberian Sound Studio, Amer and The Strange Colour Of Your Bodies Tears, FRANCESCA is an authentic and stylish celebration of the Italian giallo crime thrillers of the 60’s and 70’s made popular by Mario Bava and Dario Argento.

FRANCESCA received its World premiere at Cannes where it screened in Blood Windows and has since become a genre festival favourite with screenings at FrightFest, Sitges, Fantasporto, Fantaspoa and Morbido.


<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/158050140″>FRANCESCA – Trailer</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/user9101201″>Jinga Films</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

“The spirit of Giallo is very much alive and kicking in Luciano Onetti’s loving homage to the classic Italian sub genre” 

– Ben Robins, The National Student

 

“Impressive, creative, nostalgic. Onetti’s recreation of Giallo resurrects 1970’s Italian Horror” 

– Kat Hughes, The Hollywood News

 

“Absolute giallo…a truly spectacular blend of sleazy saturation, pop art excess and dark desires”

– Matthew Hammond, Movie Ramblings

 

“Surreal, seductive and violent, a stunning recreation of 70’s giallo” 

– Steve Wright, Britflicks

 

“A masterclass for nostalgia-seeking Giallo fans. You can’t help but wish this was the kind of film Argento was still making”

– Becky Roberts, Horror Talk

Movie Review by Kristin: BEFORE I FALL | #moviereview #movies #beforeifall

IMG_9053

What’s up, my fellow movie lovers?! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

We celebrated my niece’s birthday at the beach this weekend, so her and I were nursing extremely sunburnt skin and decided to stay in bed and watch a movie. She decided to use some of her birthday money to buy BEFORE I FALL, so that was her movie of choice!

Let me start out by saying that back when this movie was in the theater, I thought the trailer looked great. My niece (who just turned 13) saw it with her friend when it was first released and told me she didn’t like it. After watching it with me again this weekend, her opinion has changed. I think the message behind the movie went over her head a bit the first time, so I’m glad she gave it another chance.

With that being said, I actually liked it. It had a Premonition vibe to it, if any of you have seen that 2007 movie starring Sandra Bullock and Julian McMahon. BEFORE I FALL was more relatable to teenagers though.

The story follows four friends as they navigate their way through high school. As the four friends leave a party one night, they get into a car accident causing Sam (Zoey Deutch) to relive the same day repeatedly for the remainder of the movie. This concept might sound annoying, but Sam tries to figure out what could be done differently to alter the outcome of that one night. So while the day always starts out the same, Sam takes different steps to try and fix what was broken.

It’s interesting, to say the least. I’m sure many of us have a day where we wish we’d done things differently, or treated someone better, or didn’t trust someone that shouldn’t have been trusted. I know I have! This movie explores that idea and ties it in with teenage bullying, and the unnecessary need for teens to feel accepted and popular among their friends and peers.

I also enjoyed the casting for this movie! Zoey Deutch is fabulous as the main character, Sam. The supporting cast was diverse and equally great. These are your typical high school teenagers who think it’s funny to make jokes about the less popular oddballs. The difference here, however, is that viewers can sympathize with them a bit because of the little bit of backstory we get on them.

The message here is simple: Yes, we might have difficult moments in our lives that we want to ignore, push to the side, or even push off on someone else, but bullying is not the answer. It also makes you think about how you would live your own life if you knew you only had one day left to do it. The things we take for granted are often the things we should value the most. So I think this film really pushes that discussion of how actions can affect others and, subsequently, ourselves.

BEFORE I FALL is available on DVD/Blu-ray now. Check it out and let me know what you think!

MONKEY BUSINESS: THE ADVENTURES OF CURIOUS GEORGE’S CREATORS | Official Poster Debut

MonkeyBusiness

The Orchard has released the official poster for Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators! Featuring a narrow escape from the Nazis on makeshift bicycles, Monkey Business explores the extraordinary lives of Hans and Margret Rey, the authors of the beloved Curious George children’s books.

Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators will be available on demand and digital August 15, 2017!

 

 

Monkey Business: The Adventures of Curious George’s Creators

Documentary
Release: August 15, 2017
Directed by: Ema Ryan Yamazaki
Animation by: Jacob Kafka
Narrated by: Sam Waterston
Produced by: Ema Ryan Yamazaki, Emily Harrold
Executive Produced by: Marc Levin, Eric Nyari, Paul Davidson, Danielle DiGiacomo, Brad Navin

SYNOPSIS
Curious George is the most popular monkey in the world. Since his introduction in the first publication in 1941, the beloved series has sold over 75 million books in more than 25 languages. MONKEY BUSINESS explores the lesser-known tale of George’s creators, Hans and Margret Rey. Originally from Hamburg, Germany, the Reys first met when Hans was dating Margret’s older sister. Years later, having heard that Hans was wasting his artistic talents as a bookkeeper in Rio, Margret traveled to Brazil to persuade him to marry her and do something creative together. After their four-week honeymoon to Paris turned into a four-year residency, they accidentally became children’s book authors when a publisher suggested they create a book out of a cartoon Hans had drawn. Being German Jews, however, their life in Paris abruptly came to an end in June 1940 when the Reys were forced to escape from the Nazis by riding makeshift bicycles-a manuscript of the first Curious George book was one of the few possessions they could smuggle out with them. Arriving in New York as refugees, they started their life anew and over the next three decades they created a classic that continues to touch the hearts and minds of children around the world.

Movie Review by Kristin: CHEF | #chefthefilm @chefthefilm

IMG_9049First off, Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there (and to all the single moms playing both roles)!

As some of you may know, my dad passed away 2 years ago, so we celebrate my brother on Father’s Day, who is a father to my wonderful, sometimes annoying, niece. As part of his gift, I finally sat down to watch a movie and CHEF was his choice.

I have to say I’m glad he chose this one. Sadly, I’d never heard of this film, but I thought it was fantastic! It really exemplifies how someone can take a situation that is no longer making them happy, and turn things around for the better.

The movie follows celebrity chef, Carl Casper, as he runs the kitchen at an LA restaurant owned by Riva (Dustin Hoffman). Riva wants Carl to stick to his usual menu, but when a popular food critic arrives at the restaurant Carl and his team want to switch things up to make their menu more creative. This idea doesn’t sit well with Riva, and their plan is shut down. The critic, Ramsey Michel (Oliver Platt) destroys Carl’s cooking and the horrible review goes viral.

Carl gets schooled by his 10-year-old son, Percy (Emjay Anthony), on how Twitter and social media works. With little to no knowledge of social media, Carl engages Ramsey in a Twitter feud that eventually results in Carl leaving Riva’s restaurant.

At the suggestion of his ex-wife, Inez (Sofia Vergara), Carl flies with her and Percy to Miami, where his love for cooking first began. He meets with Inez’s other ex-husband, Marvin (Robert Downey, Jr.), and buys a food truck in order to get back to making the type of food that makes him happy.

With the help of his old sous chef and friend, Martin (John Leguizamo), and Percy, Carl sets off on a cross-country trip in the food truck. Percy’s use of technology turns the new food truck into a sought-after establishment.

In my opinion, this movie has great storylines that intertwine to give viewers the motivation to find what truly makes them happy. Carl takes an incident that hurts his career and stifles his creativity, and turns it around into something that positively impacts all aspects of his life. It sends the message that things aren’t always easy, but with hard work, dedication, and a dash of positive, creative energy, true happiness is absolutely possibly.

The film also features a ton of Hispanic flavor that really showcases the atmosphere here in Miami. An underlying moral of the story is: If you haven’t tried a TRUE Media Noche, do yourself a favor and TRY ONE!! Side note: Yuca Fries and Tostones should also be on your list of foods to try! What can I say…my Cuban peeps know what they’re doing! lol.

So check out the film on Netflix and, as always, let me know what you thought! You can thank me later for this little hidden gem!
