The Runaways (Review)

Rock & Roll biopic hits the right notes

0 Comments · Thursday, April 8, 2010
Music video director Floria Sigismondi trains her eye on the early days of punkish girl rockers as Cherie Currie (Dakota Fanning) and Joan Jett (Kristen Stewart) hook up with producer impresario Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon) and set the stage for what would become the runaway success of women in the game of sex and Rock & Roll. Sigismondi gets a running start at what will likely turn into a long career in the long-form spotlight. Grade: B.

Writer/director Floria Sigismondi discusses her take on 'The Runaways'

More than a few mouths fell open when it was announced that Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning had been tapped to play leads in 'The Runaways,' a biopic about the pioneering all-girl Punk/Metal group’s rapid rise and debauchery-fueled fall in the late 1970s. Writer/director Floria Sigismondi discusses the fuss around the casting as well as the movie's teen-angst subject matter.

We've often wondered if it's even possible to get through the day in these times without using the Internet. But a study by the Country Music Association found that an astonishing 50 percent of all Country music fans don't know a Twitter from a Google because they lack home Web access.  

Push (Review)

0 Comments · Tuesday, February 10, 2009
Scottish director Paul McGuigan has a way of making even the most clichéd genre excursions reasonably entertaining (see the slick noir 'Lucky Number Slevin' or the slick romantic thriller 'Wicker Park'). Add 'Push' to that list. McGuigan's latest centers in the sci-fi world of psychic espionage, a place where "paranormal operatives" have the ability to move objects with their mind, see the future and scream really loudly. Grade: C.
