Examining Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho

9 Feb

Last Night In Soho Available On Digital & Blu-ray JanuaryUniversal Pictures
4K Edition available to purchase on Amazon USA

Edgar Wright‘s Last Night in Soho plays better after watching the bonus features in its home video release. This movie is more of a coming-of-age drama than a horror film and I can see this work easily fitting into the same universe as Disney’s live-action Cruella. This work’s emphasis on fashion is key to my theory. 

Even thoughts of Suspiria come to mind because of the colour palette and catapulting of Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie) to an era not everyone knows. She somehow manifests, if not dreams, of 60s London. Instead of appearing in her own corporeal form, she’s in the body of her singer idol, Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy). The two experience the seedier side of Soho district, hence the title. The glamour of the era and the music is as delightful and sinister as Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge–but minus Christian’s perspective of All You Need Is Love and saving the starlet from her demons.

Analyzing Ant-Man’s Entry into the MCU, A Commentary and Review

21 Jul

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

_1432865109A few big surprises are in store for true believers following the unraveling Infinity Stone story arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The latest entry, Ant-Man, may well hint at how they operate if one tiny tell-tale scene is supposed to be read that way. When the scene showed crystalline structures becoming protons and turning into quarks, just how small anyone can become begs the question of what lurks within singularity? When time and space become irrelevant, is what’s there still represented and controlled by thought (i.e. Stream of Consciousness)?

When the ideas presented in this latest film jives with what Guardians of the Galaxy unveiled about these stone’s origins, the truths revealed can be mind-boggling! When a singularity from a black holes are put into a containment system, a stone, just what kind of quantum states exist in there needs to be examined. Perhaps, when all these movies from the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are available to purchase, one enterprising fan will make an edit of the scenes specific to this story arc into a mini documentary about the upcoming Infinity War.

Will Ant-Man be a dead ant, if the reports from both Slash Film and The Hollywood Reporter are any indication?

Edgar Wright’s Marvel movie about a scientist, Henry Pym, discovering sub-atomic particles that can change a mass’ size can mean either high budget effects or lower than expectation scares in a busy summer movie month. The big question the industry folks are asking is how well will this movie perform in the middle of summer, now that this film has been pushed to July 31, 2015.

On this busy plate is Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, Inside Out on June 19, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 on July 10. No date has been set for Star Wars Episode VII.

But with todays news that PoTC being put on hold, there is finally some breathing room. But as for what that means for the mouse, are they overreaching themselves? Fortunately, they have the sense to pace all these blockbuster titles out throughout the next few years.

The next step for the Avengers to make may include Pym. But until phase 3 of the Avengers saga is developed, what’s next is only a version of the East Coast scene. Fans might end up seeing a formation of the West Coast Avengers to save the day!
