Spy Hard: Feig’s Generally Entertaining Espionage Parody

Director Paul Feig does a James Bond send-up for his latest Melissa McCarthy headlined romp, Spy. But for as many laughs as this talented duo is able to generate, its ability to linger in your mind remains questionable. Running a bit long in the tooth, clocking in at two hours and with a handful of scenes and tangents that flat line, a love for the talented and likeable McCarthy will determine audience response to a scenario that’s not exactly fresh. Once again, she’s saddled with playing the buffoon who comes to learn a thing or two about a thing or two, and it would be nice to escape the creepy feeling wherein it sometimes seems we’re supposed to laugh at McCarthy in these illogical scenarios rather than with her.

The Long Good Friday 35th Anniversary Blu Ray Review

28 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: John Mackenzie

Cast: Bob Hoskins, Helen Mirren

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 116 minutes

Last year we lost the brilliant Bob Hoskins to the void. The British actor known for Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Mermaids, Hook and Super Mario Bros was sadly lost to Pneumonia. Whilst better known for these big budget studio movies Hoskins is beloved by many in the UK for his turns in Mona Lisa and The Long Good Friday, and though he may be sorely missed both of these gems are getting the special edition treatment this year. We may still have a little while to wait for Mona Lisa but as of Monday 4th May you can own anniversary edition of The Long Good Friday.

This isn’t just an old film that has been stuffed onto a disc with a couple of trailers, oh no, Arrow Films have painstakingly overseen a fully film restoration and shifted »

Film Review: ‘Survivor’

27 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Milla Jovovich plays a falsely accused Foreign Service Officer who works to thwart a terrorist plot as she runs from the authorities in “Survivor,” a sturdy wrong-woman thriller that feels grotesque in its citations of 9/11 and other intimations of real-world import, but also steals a few good moves from “North by Northwest” and “The Fugitive” for a solid middle section. A generic title and low buzz factor are hurdles for this day-and-date release, a meat-and-potatoes offering from helmer James McTeigue (“V for Vendetta,” “The Raven”).

The prologue, in which two Americans in Afghanistan are captured after a helicopter crash, gets the proceedings off to an unpromising start; the poorly staged action and a lack of background density give off the vibe of a videogame cut scene. One of the men is identified as a potential bargaining chip, and his fellow soldier is quickly immolated.

Hulk Hogan Confirms He’ll Play “Most Evil Man In The World” In Expendables 4

27 May 2015 6:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Instagram

On the tail of rumours that Hulk Hogan was set to be added to the ever growing cast of the Expendables franchise, the man himself has admitted he’s been talking to Sylvester Stallone about possibly appearing as a villain in the fourth movie.

Hogan spoke at Body Pro Expo in Birmingham earlier this month bout reuniting with his Rocky III co-star who wanted to transform him “into the most evil man in the world” for the next chapter in the Old Man Army series. Presumably, he’d have to go a long way to beat off the ghost of Thunderlips:

Survivor Review

26 May 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

During a more than 60-year acting career, Michael Caine has had a lot of highs and lows. One of his most embarrassing moments was a supporting role in the reviled sequel Jaws: The Revenge – a film that came out the same year he picked up an Academy Award for Hannah and Her Sisters. In one of the actor’s most enduring interview quotes, Caine said of the sequel that he had never seen the film. “By all accounts, it is terrible,” he said. “However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific.”

Caine’s droll attempt at transparency routinely came back into this reviewer’s mind during Survivor, a film that is cluttered with action movie clichés and may be most fondly remembered by its principal cast for helping them renovate their homes. Despite the presence of director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta) and thriller author »

The Expendables 4: Hulk Hogan confirms talks

26 May 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could a Rocky III reunion be on the cards with The Expendables 4?

We can't keep up with the state of The Expendables series. We know that there's a television series being developed, and we wondered if that meant that the movies were being put on hold, at least for the time being (in spite of the fact that plans were apparently afoot for a fourth and fifth film). Well, apart from the still apparently active The ExpendaBelles movie, which will be headlined by women.

However, it seems there's still chatter about The Expendables 4, and Hulk Hogan is the latest to reveal that he's been in talks for the film.

Chatting at the Body Pro Expo held in the mighty Birmingham, Hogan revealed that "I was talking on the phone with Sly last night about doing The Expendables 4", adding that "we're trying to figure out a way to »

Hulk Hogan is talking to Sylvester Stallone about possible Expendables 4 villain role

Hulk Hogan has said he's been talking to Sylvester Stallone about possibly appearing as a villain in Expendables 4.

Speaking at the Body Pro Expo in Birmingham earlier this month, Hogan said his Rocky III co-star was looking to turn him "into the most evil man in the world" for the action franchise's possible fourth instalment.

"I was talking on the phone with Sly last night about doing The Expendables 4," Hogan said. "We're trying to figure out a way to maybe turn me into the most evil man in the world.

"Y'know, Stallone gave me my first break and he's been a great friend for all these years. He's the exact same guy today than he was 30 years ago. We had a great conversation, talking about the possibilities.

Simon Pegg pens thoughtful essay on ‘infantilization’ of mainstream films

20 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Simon Pegg is still a nerd and proud of it.

This week however the nerd community was ready to cast him out on account of some comments he made to the Radio Times. Pegg, who despite writing Star Trek 3 and leading the Cornetto Trilogy and likely cameoing in Star Wars VII, felt that he might one day “retire from geekdom” and pursue “serious acting” because of the “dumbing down” of our culture due to these movies.

Part of me looks at society as it is now and just thinks we’ve been infantilised by our own taste,” Pegg said. “Now we’re essentially all consuming very childish things – comic books, superheroes… Adults are watching this stuff, and taking it seriously…It is a kind of dumbing down in a way, because it’s taking our focus away from real-world issues. Films used to be about challenging, emotional journeys or »

It's been developing for a while, with Pierce Brosnan attached to star for some months. But I.T. is finally gathering some momentum and filling in the rest of its cast, and the latest to come aboard is Anna Friel.
