Amy Jo Johnson Wants to Watch a Movie With You

Culture, film, Showcase, Videos

March 15, 2017

You remember Amy Jo Johnson, yes? With all the attention being paid to the new Power Rangers movie, we thought it might be interesting to take a look at what one of the originals is doing – and, in short, she is continuing her quest to be awesome.

Amy’s gone on to act in other projects (Felecity and Flashpoint), flirted with music (The Trans-American Treatment and Imperfect),  and done a number of short films (Bent, Lines, and others). She was kind enough to take a moment from her incredibly busy schedule to speak with us before, and you can read that interview by clicking here. She’s not the sort to rest on her laurels, though, and has just completed writing, directing, and producing her first-ever feature film, The Space Between Us.

Here’s the trailer:

That looks both cute and poignant, which is interesting given the potential seriousness of the subject material.

According to press materials, “The Space Between is a heartfelt comedy about Mitch, a 35-year-old new father, whose world is turned upside down when he finds out his adored baby isn’t his. Leaving his wife, he sets out on a mission to find the man who ruined his life. As his wife Jackie is desperate to win him back, she enlists the help of her best friend and family as they embark on a journey to find Mitch.” It’s was the 2014 IndieWire Project of the Year, part of the 2015 Tribeca All Access Program, the 2015 Telefilm Micro Budget program, and developed in the producers’ lab at the Canadian Film Center. It premiered at the Shanghai International Film Festival before moving on to the Whistler Film Festival, the Savannah Film Festival, and is about to be shown at Gina Davis’ Bettonville Film Festival.

It stars Michael Ironside (Top Gun), Kristian Bruun (Orphan Black), Jayne Eastwood (Chicago), Julia Sarah Stone (Wet Bum), and Amy herself.

All of that is kind of great, but it is not the coolest part of this whole endeavour: rather, Amy Jo Johnson has started The Space Between Super Host Theatrical Tour, wherein eight lucky winners of a contest will be chosen to host a special one-night screening of the film with Amy Jo Johnson herself in their hometown. The contest opens March 15th and goes through to April 1st, 2017, with the eight winners being announced at the end of April and the film going on tour in the summer of this year.

The Space Between team will handle all of the logistics of booking the theater and the eight winners will get to take home 5% of the Producer’s Box Office earnings for their screening, and get to spend the evening with Amy Jo Johnson as the host of the event.

Giveaways are also part of the contest, with Amy awarding prizes that include t-shirts, Skype dates, and a one-time grand prize private dinner with Amy Jo Johnson and her producer, Jessica Adams. You can, should, and must click here to learn more and fill out an application, or click here if you want to learn more.  In short, applicants will submit a pitch video describing why they want to host the film and Amy in their hometown and how they plan to bring their friends, family, and community out for the screening that night.

The Space Between team can be found on Twitter and FaceBook simply be clicking the place you’d like to communicate with them. Amy Jo Johnson is also on Twitter, FaceBook, Instagram, and has her very own website, and you can find any of those spots by clicking on them. All of them are pretty great.

Good luck, peoples. The clock it is ticking.

Review: Civil War, Dawn of Justice, and Apocalypse Trailers

Culture, Fail, Reviews, Videos

December 14, 2015

Ho-hum. Another day, another trailer.

That looks like something. There’s people in in that resemble the X-Men, certainly. When you talk to people that liked the recent x-movies, though, the thing they mention is the complexity of the relationship between Charles and Erik. Does it look like there’s much of that here?

No, there’s some blue thing who is doing… something? Something bad, maybe? There’s a lot of sparkle and jingle-jangle, like keys being dangled before a toddler, but after the initial wow dies down – the second the trailer ends – everything about the trailer is gone. It’s forgettable, interchangeable with any of a dozen other trailers.

Like, say, this one:

You know, I’m going to go out on a limb: Ben Affleck’s take on Batman looks interesting. I think he’s going to pull that character off, and I’d be interested in seeing his movie, preferably before Dawn of Justice, but DC Comics is playing catch-up to Marvel and instead of taking their time to craft a story using their incredible backlog of characters, they’re just going to jam everyone into one movie like throwing shit at a wall and hoping that something sticks.

The problem with this approach is that it relies on spectacle rather than substance, and spectacle is increasingly meaningless on it’s own – effect based movies have become increasingly boring because every movie has special effects, and so the only thing to set one movie apart from the others is the characters within those movies.

It’s funny that character driven movies, which fell out of favor because of spectacle, are now making a comeback due to the super-saturation of spectacle.

And that’s why we’re excited for this movie:

Yes, the Black Panther looks awesome for those of that know who he is, but every beat in that trailer is character based. Cap, Bucky, Falcon, Natasha, Iron Man. We care about everything in this trailer because of who these people are and what they mean to one another. They have a mythos behind them, history, so everything they say and do is given weight.

X-Men Apocalypse could have focused on the strained ties between Charles, Erik, and Raven as they deal with one another and a new threat, but instead we get what looks like a confused mangled mess. Dawn of Justice could have focused on the fallout from Man of Steel resulting in Batman and a panicked response from the world, but instead we get what looks like a rushed outline that will cram too much style with too little substance.

Civil War hits a perfect median by having every bit of spectacle be character based.

It’s a difference born of different philosophies of movie making. Fox and DC Comics are making superhero movies, whereas Marvel is making good movies that just happen to have superheroes in them. It’s a design choice that informs everything all three of those studios do, and it’s made all the more frustrating when it comes to DC Comics because of how good Arrow and Flash are.

Yes, I’m going to go see all of them in theaters, but by the time they come out on blu-ray I’m only going to remember Civil War, and Civil War is going to be the only one I’m likely to buy. I hope I’m wrong. I hope Dawn of Justice and X-Men Apocalypse buck the expectations set by the trailer and give us solid, interesting characters.

I’m just not going to hold my breath.

Dawn of Justice Trailer

God Of Comics, Videos

December 3, 2015

Ye Gods, DC. We were worried that maybe you wouldn’t be able to follow in the footsteps of what Marvel has done, that maybe this was going to be a giant mess that would still be pretty to look at, but this? This looks fantastic:

Even Batffleck looks great.

No, better than that – most actors have pulled off either Bruce Wayne or Batman, but not both. The best of the lot was Bale, but the infamous voice was kind of a detraction; this, however, even sounds good. It looks like Ben was serious about making up for Daredevil, so good on him. I was worried about a lot of things going into this, but the trailer has sold me on his Batman, and I’m intrigued to see how this plays out.

Superman, of course, looks great and appears to have been doing good works around the world since the original Man of Steel. The good works in question even look like they might be worldwide, which is a great thing; the entire point of Superman is that he is a god living to the best of humanity, regardless of nation. That’s awesome.

Lex looks great, Zod becoming Doomsday was a nice surprise, and Wonder Woman looks god-like – that shot of the three of them getting ready to wreck Doomsday? That would’ve sold me the ticket right there. That’s the most impressive the DC Comics Trinity has looked in a very long time.

There’s less to say about Dawn of Justice than there is about Civil War because there’s less to draw on, but this looks like a hell of a good gateway into a larger DC Cinematic Universe.

If there was any doubt before, consider is squashed. This looks awesome and we’ll be going to check it out, too.

Captain America Civil War Trailer

Culture, God Of Comics, Videos

November 25, 2015

So, this hit last night, just in time for Thanksgiving:

Holy God, but that looks amazing.

Gotta admit, I was leery. I hated the Civil War comics. Loathed them. They were poorly written, poorly constructed, and so poorly-thought out that they were mostly retconned out of existence after just a few years. They made Iron Man evil, and kickstarted the whole mess that eventually forced Marvel to reboot the whole damn company to fix the damage they were doing to their characters. The comic made no sense even as an allegory, and failed on pretty much every level.

This, though? Captain America would be loyal to his friends, and especially Bucky – a man who was victimized in a way that most people can’t even imagine. Given the current trends of victim blaming in popular news media and the leaked intelligence that came out at the end of Winter Soldier, there’s no chance that Bucky would be treated with anything other than fear by those in power. He’s a useful scapegoat, the sort of figurehead that could be tied to everything Hydra ever did.

Cap would stand by his friend and want to protect him… and that’s going to lead to heartbreak.

“He’s my friend,” Cap tells Tony.

“So was I,” Tony says.

Tony is still reeling from the fear that the Scarlet Witch inflicted on him. He’s been dealing with PTSD from the first Iron Man movie in every subsequent appearance, and that’s where this tragedy begins. Captain America isn’t what America is, but rather what it could be – Tony is a little more pragmatic, a little more realistic, and much more prone to fear. His desire to do right can be twisted, and it will be here. This is going to be incredible.

Also – Black Panther puts in an appearance here, and no, peoples, we didn’t see Wakanda yet. Go suffer through Age of Ultron again and listen to what the people smuggling the Vibranium out of Wakanda are saying: they’re no longer in that country and they don’t want to go back because they stole something precious and they’re pretty sure they’ll be executed if they’re caught. Black Panther showing up here changes the game entirely, and starts building to more movies to come.

So, yes, for the love of whatever you believe in, we’re in. We’re going.

This is going to be awesome.
