The Last Duel Crew Share Their Ridley Scott Stories: 'He Doesn't Stop Until He Gets It' [Exclusive]

There are many reasons to look forward to "The Last Duel," ranging from the fact that it's a Ridley Scott movie and nothing more needs to be said (although I'm going to say more anyway, sorry!), to the current dearth of historical epics that used to be considered proven moneymakers and have made this film into a rarity, to the must-see appearances of both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in medieval hair and makeup ... not to mention their significant contributions on the other side of the camera, as ...

Wilczyca – review

Director: Marek Piestrak Release date: 1983 Contains (lots of) spoilersI vacillated with this film as to whether to review it or suggest it was a film that used some tropes from the vampire genre. I came across it in the volume Strange Blood: 71 Essays on Offbeat and Underrated Vampire Movies. The film’s title translates to She-Wolf and my first instinct, watching the film before reading the essay by Wojciech Wolski, was that it was not a vampire film despite using some familiar tropes. Nor was...

‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’ Early Buzz: A Surprisingly Superb Sequel

The announcement of a Sicario sequel was met with some raised eyebrows. How do you follow up Denis Villeneuve‘s powerful, gripping drama about the escalating war on drugs – and do so without the return of Villeneuve, cinematographer Roger Deakins, or star Emily Blunt? Early marketing for Sicario: Day of the Soldado was a bit confused as well, with some trailers suggesting that it was a morally gray prestige thriller in the vein of the first film while others showcased a bombastic action movie. ...

Humiliate yourself in Wisconsin

1. Not knowing the basics about the Packers. It’s okay if you are not an expert, but to not make a fool of yourself and be able to hold your own with basic small talk in Wisconsin, you should at least know the names of the coach and quarterback of the Packers. Another important fact to memorize is that we are definitely going to win the Super Bowl next year (whatever year that is). 2. Falling on black ice because you didn’t dress for the weather. It happens to the best of us. The sun is shi...

Besieged by drought, Cape Town is on the verge of running out of water

It's 2018. Donald Trump is president of the U.S., Elon Musk will soon send a sports car into space aboard a massive rocket, and Cape Town, South Africa, will run out of water in 79 days.  Triggered by an intense drought, officials in Cape Town are poised to turn off the taps to about 3.2 million people on or around April 12. Given seasonal rainfall patterns, it's doubtful to impossible to avoid this once-unthinkable situation, since the region is in the midst of its typical dry season ...

It’s ‘Pick of the Vine’ season at Little Fish Theater in San Pedro

Little Fish Theater’s annual short-play festival “Pick of the Vine” this year features nine plays touching on the theme “Secrets We Keep.” Bringing meaning and polish to the plays are a uniformly firm feel even though various directors are involved, crisp designs and solid acting. The evening begins with “Immersion Therapy,” written by David MacGregor, directed by Bill Wolski. Sky-high energy draws the audience right in, as Melissa (Rachel Levy) cannot wait to receive her birthday gift. But her ...

Wojtek Wolski’s Comeback

from Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star, When he thinks back to the terrifying moments that came after he crashed head-first into the boards on that October night in Russia, Wojtek Wolski remembers fearing the worst. “I remember thinking I was paralyzed,” Wolski said in a recent interview with The Star. And when you watch the video of the incident in question, clipped from the third period of an otherwise unremarkable game in which Wolski was playing for the KHL’s Metallurg Magnitog...

Despres Head Injury, Wolski Breaks Neck, Dylan Strome Scratched & More News

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Simon Despres looks like he’ll miss a little time. He’s scheduled to see a specialist after beginning to suffer from symptoms that are often an indication of a head injury in the absence of recent trauma. Speaking Friday, general manager Bob Murray said, “There’s something wrong here and we’ve got to get to the bottom of it.” Murray stopped short of saying that Despres has a concussion at this point, though there’s certainly an undertone of concern after Despres missed ...
