Into The Storm

The Into The Storm trailer has been released.

In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot.

Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, INTO THE STORM throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.

Directed by Steven Quale (Final Destination 5), the film stars Richard Armitage (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug), Sarah Wayne Callies (TV’s The Walking Dead), Matt Walsh (Ted), Alycia Debnam-Carey (Where the Devil Hides), Arlen Escarpeta (Final Destination 5), Nathan Kress (TV’s iCarly), Jon Reep (Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay) and Jeremy Sumpter (Soul Surfer, TV’s Friday Night Lights).

Into The Storm will be released in Australian cinemas on September 4.

Dave Griffiths’s ‘Ted’ Review:

When a film has the power to have a whole audience in stitches, reduce three to have asthma attacks and have others laughing so much that they are almost falling into the aisles in stitches you know that you are onto a comedy that achieves its aim. That is exactly what happened at the first screening of Ted in Melbourne.

From the pen of Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane comes Ted the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg – Contraband, The Fighter) a man who as a boy wished that his teddy bear, Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane – TV’S Family Guy & The Cleveland Show) could talk.

In a Christmas miracle Ted to begin talk and soon became a celebrity but as the years went by his star begin to fade and he turned into a foul-mouthed, bad tempered teddy bear. Now John is faced with a challenge get rid of his life-long buddy or risk losing his beautiful girlfriend, Lori (Mila Kunis – Friends With Benefits, Black Swan).

Meanwhile Lori’s boss Rex (Joel McHale – TV’S Community, The Big Year) is making a play for Lori while Donny (Giovanni Ribisi – Contraband, The Rum Diary) is hell-bent on stealing Ted for his creepy son.

MacFarlane’s pen takes Ted into all kinds of areas of ‘wrong’ humor yet you can’t help but laughing at all of them – he certainly takes hold of the old saying ‘if you’re going to offend someone, offend everyone’. To be blunt MacFarlane has actually created one of the funniest scripts of all time… it’s crass but still high brow.

Lots of filmmakers have promised that their romantic comedy is going to be a ‘rom com with a difference’ but they nearly always end up following the same formula as all the ones before it, but Ted is the one that bucks that trend. Yes it has a foul-mouthed teddy bear but at the end the day this is a romance that is basically a girlfriend asking a boyfriend to change… but it’s the creative way that MacFarlane does it that makes it a winner.

The other big winners from Ted are Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg. Both continue to show that they have the skills to make a comedy funny while they are brilliantly supported by the likes of Joel McHale, Giovanni Ribisi and Patrick Warburton (Sophomore, Action Hero) who all benefit from the fact that MacFarlane realizes the importance of support characters. In fact Joel McHale just shows that his comedy timing in the hit television show Community is no fluke… he is certainly one of the comedy finds of this generation.

Ted is a sensational comedy that will have you laughing from start to finish. Just remember if your asthmatic to take along your Ventolin and maybe a sewing kit just in case you found yourself doubled over or in the aisle in stiches. To be blunt Ted is one of the funniest comedies to surface in a long, long time.

SUBCULTURE MEDIA/THE GOOD THE BAD THE UGLY FILM SHOW REVIEWS/RATINGS OF ‘THE HANGOVER’:

David Griffiths:Have we just found the funniest comedy of the year. I haven’t laughed so much at a film for quite a long time. The major thing that ‘The Hangover’ has working in its favor is that it has the perfect comedy script. All the situations and one liners are pieces of comic genius and unlike most comedies these days it managed to have the whole audience in absolute stitches… now that is the sign of a very good comedy indeed.

‘The Hangover’ tells the story of three friends; Phil Wenneck (Bradley Cooper), Stu Price (Ed Helms) and Alan Garner (Zach Galifianakis) who take Doug Billings (Justin Bartha) to Las Vegas for his bucks night. For all four of them it is an important trip, it gives the confident Phil time away from his wife and child, it gives the under-the-thumb Stu time away from his bitchy girlfriend and it allows the ‘not-quite-normal’ Alan time to make friends for the first time in his life. However the weekend takes a turn for the worse when Phil, Stu and Alan wake up to find their room trashed, a tiger in the bathroom and the worst hangovers of their lives. To make matters worse, Doug is missing, they have stolen a Police Car and some how inherited a baby. Can they get their wits about them and find Doug so he can make it to his wedding in time? Somehow you just know things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.

The writers of ‘The Hangover’ were previously responsible for ‘Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past’ and they manage to out do what they did there with a script so funny that we haven’t seen anything like it since ‘Road Trip’. Director, Todd Phillips recreates the magic he created with ‘Old School’ and ‘Road Trip’. He manages to keep his comic leads under control and keeps the film believable at all times… that is the main reason why this film works because you honestly believe the situation that the characters find themselves in.

The leads in this film do an amazing job. They truly deserve their lead roles here and are a joy to watch. Zach Galifianakis does an amazing job and shoes that he is much better comedy actor than the likes of Adam Sandler and Jack Black. When you watch him in ‘The Hangover’ you get the feeling that you are watching a true comedy legend in the makings, you can only hope that he gets more opportunities to show his comedy-gold to the world.

There is little surprise that ‘The Hangover 2’ is already in pre-production, this film is so good that it deserves to do well at the box office. ‘The Hangover’ is one of the funniest films of the year and is a must for those who love to laugh out loud.
