'Bastille Day' hangs it's hat on action sequences and clings to the Bourne-Bond coat tails - Joachim Trier's English language debut 'Louder Than Bombs...
Sadly Jon Favreau's new, live action version of Disney's take on The Jungle Book is a massive let down. I spent half the film trying to stay awake and the rest of the movie trying to make out what was going on.
Rudyard Kipling would smile and pinch himself. The lush forest's alive with Kipling's classic characters, so real that you jump with amazement when they speak.
Shot in real time with an audacious 138 minute single take 'Victoria' is an exhilarating, drug fuelled, frenetic, roller coaster, crazy, dusk to dawn Berlin trip - 'Papusza' offers a fascinating glimpse into the world of the first Roma poet - 'Black Mountain Poets,' a low budget indie hopes for gentle farce but strains to live up to it's intentions.
Although I grew to love the morally challenged criminal lawyer, Saul Goodman, on one of my all time favorite TV shows, AMC's Emmy award-winning Breaking Bad, I didn't make a point to watch it when it first premiered because it was still a TV show about a lawyer.
When I was a kid I used to mock the names of the great French authors Gustave Flaubert and Honoré de Balzac. I used to pronounce Flaubert as "Flow Be...
I attended the VIP screening of Lionsgate's latest action thriller, London Has Fallen, last week at London's Ham Yard Hotel. It's taken me a while to do a write-up because I have mixed feelings about the film. On the surface, it's a great action film with incredible special effects, spectacular stunts and a great cast, but there were also moments which made me feel a little uncomfortable.
Joel and Ethan Coen take a tongue-in-cheek stroll across the studio lots of the Hollywood dream factory of the early 1950s, a vicious, back stabbing, surreal other world with a wide smile, glamour and ego.
Judging by the reviews I'd read, I knew it wasn't going to be great, but I had no idea it was going to be quite so bad. Before the climax, I decided enough was enough and walked out. Something I've never done before.
With it's emotional intensity, strong cast, a storyline linked to Argentina's Dirty War and it's effect on law enforcement, Juan Jose Campanella's 'El Secreto de Sus Ojos' superb noir thriller traced the effect a brutal rape and murder case, reopened 25 years later had on a judge and a retired member of the investigative team.
I was lucky enough to attend the premiere of How To Be Single with my other half, walking just meters away from its fabulous female cast; Leslie Mann, Dakota Johnson, Alison Brie and, of course, Rebel on the pink carpet.
Online video has proven to be one of the Internet's most disruptive frontier's, shaking the ground beneath the feet of Hollywood and television more than any other. It's taken the power of publicity away from marketing execs and carefully-controlled promotional work and allowed honest opinions to be heard.
"This book does not claim to be a definitive survey of street art across the globe," Lou Chamberlain writes in the introduction to this book. "Rather, it is a snapshot that captures a moment in time..."
I'm not a fan of crime thrillers, at all, but having followed Dr. Magnanti's previous works I was very interested to read The Turning Tide. I wasn't disappointed. The story opens with the discovery of a body in the highlands and takes us on a journey, introducing us to some very rich and diverse characters along the way.
