    Netflix Enters Original Content World By Backing David Fincher/Kevin Spacey Series 'House of Cards'

    The term 'game-changer' gets bandied around a lot, but rarely accurately. "The Matrix Revolutions," for instance, was billed as such. So was "Tron: Legacy," and neither seem to have changed any games, as such. "Avatar" has the most claim to the title, seeing as how it immediately encouraged every ot...

    SXSW Review: 'Kill List' Is A Shocking, Emotionally Resonant & Horrific Ride

    Few movies have scarred and emotionally terrorized people (including some on the Playlist staff) more than this year's SXSW Film Festival entry "Kill List," the sophomore feature from Ben Wheatley ("Down Terrace"). With its intriguing mixture of kitchen-sink domestic drama, hit man thriller, and creepy mysticism, it's the rare horror film -- which isn't really a "horror film" per se, but includes psychological, emotional and physically horrifying moments -- that doesn't play into any conventions of the genre. Every time you think you've pegged it neatly into one of the aforementioned genres, it'll swing around and surprise you again, and the ...

    Review: 'Limitless' Expands The Boundaries of Bradley Cooper's Charm

    Originally (and enigmatically) titled “Dark Fields,” Neil Burger’s latest film now bears the bland moniker “Limitless,” making it sound like a film scraped together from D.C. Comics’ dregs. But rather than being another entry in the seemingly neverending superhero genre, “Limitless” is a sci-fi-infl...

    SXSW: Miranda July Says 'The Future' Is Her Version Of A Horror Film

    And More We Learned About Her New FilmFew working filmmakers are as divisive as Miranda July. Her first film, "Me and You and Everyone We Know" was to some, one of the best films of the last decade, but to others was barely watchable insufferable hipster bait. We're firmly in the former camp, and a...

    Karl Gajdusek To Rewrite William Monahan's Script For Joseph Kosinski's 'Horizons' (aka 'Oblivion')

    Even though "Tron: Legacy" underperformed and was met with a collective shrug from both fanboys and critics alike, Disney still wants to be in the Joseph Kosinski business and he's got a property they think will make them a mint. His graphic novel "Oblivion" was picked up by Disney a while ago and l...
