THE GUNMAN – In Theaters MARCH 20, 2015
(SPOILERS) I checked out another movie…
Fans of claustrophobic, single location thrillers such as Cube, Saw and Buried are in for a real treat this month when Stephen Manuel’s multi award winning IRON DOORS is released on DVD and VOD in UK by Warwick Films with a street date of January 19th 2015.
As you can see – IRON DOORS had a UK release back in January. I know, I know…I’m late. HEY. I’ve got a 6 month old now. (lol) Here’s a little more on the movie…
Iron Doors premiered at Berlin Film Festival where it was snapped up by Jinga Films for worldwide sales. It went on to win Best Film at Haapsalu Film Festival, Best Actor for Axel Wedekind at Fantasporto and Best Cinematography at the European Independent Film Festival.
As you can see – it’s won some stuff!! (lol) OK. What’s the movie about?
Locked in a vault, a young investment banker faces a slow death from starvation. Who kidnapped him and why? How can he escape the concrete walls and massive iron door that confine him? His journey of self discovery has only just began and his fight for survival will teach him values in life he previously thought impossible.
Now…my thoughts on IRON DOORS?!
I liked the whole SAW feel it had. It really reminded me of that…but without all the blood and gore. The drinking of the piss – loved it! (lol) Film maker Stephen Manuel kept it real there. (lol) Watch the movie folks – it all makes perfect sense. I soooo be doing that if I were ever put in that situation. (lol) IRON DOORS definitely played with my emotions. Axel Wedekind who plays the main dude. Does a good job. In the beginning of the movie – I thought he was a douche. Quite annoying. But as the movie went on…I started feeling for the dude. I actually started feeling bad for him. (lol) His situation is just fucked up!!
Not a happy camper about the subtitles. I mean – 47 minutes into the movie – – then subtitles appear. I just wish we could have gotten them earlier. Watch the movie and you’ll see what I’m talking about. (lol) Another thing that semi-bummed me out was – the “WHY?” Maybe a little hint. (lol)
- – – – – -
I give IRON DOORS… 3 out of 5 popcorns. Overall I liked it. Makes ya think…at least for me. There is some other ‘stuff’ that happens in the movie (not going to say, don’t wanna give away) which makes ya think, “Yeah. Stephen is keeping it real.” (lol) The ending. Thumbs Up dude. Thumbs up.

DISNEY AND myLINGO BREAK LANGUAGE BARRIERS FOR MOVIEGOERS
myLINGO to Provide Free Spanish Language Audio Track for Disney’s “McFarland, USA”
LOS ANGELES (February 12, 2015)—Walt Disney Studios has unveiled a new collaboration with myLINGO, a smartphone app that allows moviegoers to experience a film in the language of their choice discreetly through personal headphones. For Disney’s upcoming release of “McFarland, USA,” moviegoers can enjoy the film in Spanish right along side their bilingual family and friends when the film hits theaters on February 20.
The myLINGO app uses the microphone on a moviegoer’s smartphone or other device to “listen” to the audio, once the movie has begun. The app, through a proprietary algorithm, then matches the unique audio signature to its precise place in the movie, and plays back the alternate language audio through headphones in perfect sync with the film. The audio file will only play if it hears the movie, and once the movie is over, the file self-deletes from the app.
“We are delighted to bring the magical world of Disney films to a broader group of Spanish-speaking viewers and multicultural families at select theatres with this new technology,” said Paul Holliman, Vice President, Strategic Planning at Walt Disney Studios. “myLINGO provides a rich and customized cinematic experience, where bilingual families and friends can share the same emotion, laughter and excitement together in a whole new way.”
The Spanish audio track for “McFarland, USA” will be offered for free via a promotional code throughout opening weekend February 20 – 22. Following the opening weekend, filmgoers can access the audio track for $1.99.
“The Walt Disney Company is one of the most iconic and respected companies in the world, and myLINGO is thrilled to be working together on such an important film about bringing people and communities together,” said Adam Polak, co-founder of myLINGO. Co-founder, Olenka Polak added, “myLINGO is dedicated to creating authentic and inclusive experiences that are accessible to all moviegoers no matter what language they speak.”
Cinemagoers can enjoy their customized audio experience in three easy steps:
(1) Download the myLINGO app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
(2) Before going to the theater, choose the Spanish audio file for McFarland USA and download it – either at home, or someplace with a strong Wi-Fi signal.
(3) Be sure to bring your smartphone and good earphones that seal the ear canal.

myLINGO is an app for Apple and Android mobile devices that allows users to personalize their movie-going listening experience, either by playing an alternative language track or an enhanced and controllable audio track, through earbuds or headphones, in perfect synchronization with the film they are watching in the theater. The app was founded in 2012 by Adam and Olenka Polak, two siblings from Greenwich, CT who grew up in a predominantly Polish speaking household – because their parents were non- native English speakers, the family was not able to enjoy going to the movies together. Recognizing a need in the market due to potential audiences with increasingly diverse hearing preferences, the Polaks searched for a way to use technology to address this problem. The company is headquartered in in Los Angeles and lists several entertainment industry executives among its Directors and Advisors, including Chris Cookson, former CTO at Warner Bros. and President of Sony Pictures Technologies; Joe Peixoto, former President of Worldwide Cinema for RealD; Jeffrey Zimmer, CEO of United Talent Agency; and Dennis Miller, Former EVP at Turner Broadcasting and Sony Pictures and General Partner at Spark Capital; and Bob Doris, Founder/CEO and Chairman of Sonic Solutions.

About “McFarland, USA”
Based on the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school. Coach White and the McFarland students have a lot to learn about each other but when White starts to realize the boys’ exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Soon something beyond their physical gifts becomes apparent—the power of family relationships, their unwavering commitment to one another and their incredible work ethic. With grit and determination, the unlikely band of runners eventually overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finally found a place to call home and both he and his team achieve their own kind of American dream.
