Friday One Sheet: THE RHYTHM SECTION

In cinema, all you need is a girl and a gun.  Good old Godard said this of filmmaking, but it applies to the marketing department just fine. Here we have a poster for Blake Lively starring revenge thriller, The Rhythm...

Review: VOX LUX, The Cult of Celebrity and the 'Difficult' Star

Music stars (real or imagined) and their various addictions and vices, have been fodder for films for many years. Brady Corbet's sophomore feature, Vox Lux, looks at the unusual beginnings and current troubles of mega-pop star Celeste, a stand-in for...

Review: Guy Ritchie's KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD, Very, Very Familiar

Review: GENIUS, A Theatrical Pageant That Goes Terribly Wrong

Elvis Costello famously quipped, "writing about music is like dancing about architecture", and while I hardly agree with the overall sentiment -- if I did, I wouldn't exactly be doing this -- his point is well taken. Success in one...

Berlinale 2016 Review: GENIUS Proves That Not All Talent Translates

Elvis Costello famously quipped, "writing about music is like dancing about architecture", and while I hardly agree with the overall sentiment -- if I did, I wouldn't exactly be doing this -- his point is well taken. Success in...

Review: SPY, McCarthy Shines In Uproarious Espionage Send Up

Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig team up once again for a wickedly funny send-up of the James Bond series with charm and wit in ample supply. Jude Law and Jason Statham add to the fun as, respectively, a suave, painfully...

Review: DOM HEMINGWAY, A Cheeky, If Slight, Gangster Character Study

Petty gangster, safecracker, loud mouth, loose cannon, thief, deadbeat dad, pint guzzling, word-smithing, cat killing, thug Dom Hemingway is the type of guy you would have no tolerance for in real life, but generally gravitate towards on screen. Twelve years...

Meet the Grand Cast of THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

I'm very tempted to go to Berlinale in February just to see Wes Anderon's new film The Grand Budapest Hotel open the festival. Past romance, part Agatha Christie-style mystery, Anderson has gathered some of his usual troupe (Jason Schwartzman, Bill...

Get Control Of Yourself And Put On Some Trousers! New DOM HEMINGWAY Trailer

The marketing machine not shy about throwing in most of the good bits from Richard Shepard's Jude Law starring gangster effort Dom Hemingway in order to get your butt in the cinema. To eyes that have seen (and very much...

Watch The Trailer For Wes Anderson's GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL

Many love him. Many hate him. And after the runaway success of Moonrise Kingdom, director Wes Anderson is back with The Grand Budapest Hotel. Written, directed and produced by Anderson from an original story by Anderson and Hugo Guinness, The...

Trailer for DOM HEMINGWAY Offers A Lambchopped Jude Law

Jude law is Dom Hemingway.  And you are not.  In a similar vein as Chopper, Bronson and Sexy Beast, this often droll, occasionally gonzo, but compulsively watchable gangster yarn shows Law as an angry but funny thug who is looking for...

TIFF 2013 Review: DOM HEMINGWAY, A Cheeky, If Slight, Gangster Character Study

JANE GOT A GUN But No Actors. Bradley Cooper Becomes Latest To Abandon Ship.

I don't believe I've ever seen a production as anticipated as the Natalie Portman starring and produced western Jane Got A Gun turn so bad, so quickly. The early exit of Michael Fassbender was clearly an omen, in retrospect, but...

Jude Law Bows Out Of JANE GOT A GUN

Just a few short hours after Warrior director Gavin O'Connor came to save the day in the wake of Lynne Ramsay's departure comes more ill news from the set of the Natalie Portman starring and produced western Jane Got A...

WARRIOR Director Gavin O'Connor Takes Helm On JANE GOT A GUN

One of the more spectacular and weirder pieces of news this week came from the set of the Natalie Portman/Jude Law starring western Jane Got A Gun. Director Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) pulled a no-show on...

Review: SIDE EFFECTS May Include Whiplash From Jarring Change In Tone

The important thing to know about Side Effects -- which Steven Soderbergh says will be his last theatrical film for a while, maybe forever -- is that whatever you're thinking it's going to be, it probably is not that. Pardon...

Review: RISE OF THE GUARDIANS Tries to Make Jack Frost a Thing

A story in which mythical figures like Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy team up to protect children from the Boogeyman sounds like a sure bet, and William Joyce's Guardians of Childhood book series has evidently...
