Review: "The Legend Of Tarzan" (2016) Starring Alexander Skarsgard

12 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By John Lemay

For many years Tarzan was a staple of cinema—in fact from its very onset. The first Tarzan feature, Tarzan of the Apes, came out in 1918 and was followed by close to 50 other adaptations in the last century. His star started to fade in the late 1960s and there were no Tarzan features in the 1970s save for one. The 1980s somewhat provided his last gasp on the big screen with movies like the Bo Derek vehicle Tarzan, the Ape Man (1981) and- more impressively- the well-received Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes.  The 1990s saw only 1998’s Tarzan and the Lost City and the 1999 Disney animated version. In fact, for all many “youngsters” know Tarzan may as well have originated with the Disney cartoon. For the first time in many years, we finally have a new big-budget live-action iteration of one of the screen »

Review: This 'Tarzan' may not be the king of the jungle, but he still swings

3 July 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I’m planning to review a film, I try not to read any criticism of that film until after I’ve already organized my thoughts and written and published my own piece. I don’t like having anyone else’s take in my head as I’m writing, positive or negative. I don’t want to be put into a position where I’m either defending or attacking someone else’s opinion. I want my reviews to be my active thoughts, not a reactive response to something. In the case of The Legend Of Tarzan, though, they evidently gave the east coast a one-day head-start on the rest of us. Even though I was in the middle of my move into a new apartment on Wednesday, the day I was set to see the film, I saw enough headlines go by on social media to be able to tell »

Best of June Icymi

Three of our current June mini-series are not quite over and spilling into July a teensy bit (Olivia de Havilland & Screen Tarzans & Halfway Mark) but it's that time again to look back on the month that was since the calendar stops for no one! One series that is over is our Fyc's for Emmy hopefuls including full tough to narrow down ballots for drama and comedy prizes. But all this off-current cinema distraction was fine because this summer movie season hasn't exactly been fire, if you know what I mean.

Box Office Preview: Can ‘The Purge: Election Year’ Topple Newbies ‘The Legend of Tarzan’ and Spielberg’s ‘The Bfg’?

30 June 2016 4:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Two costly new releases, “The Legend of Tarzan” (Warner Bros.) and “The Bgf” (Buena Vista), which reportedly cost over $300 million combined, look unlikely to dislodge Pixar/Disney’s high-flying “Finding Dory” from its third weekend in first place. And it is possible that a $10 million new entry, “The Purge: Election Year” (Universal), could edge out both as the best of the newbies.

But with “Dory” coming off a $73 million weekend, it should have little trouble topping $35 million for the three day total and over $40 million for the four. That should best all the first week entries, though their order remains a question mark.

Independence Day is one of three major holidays (Christmas and New Years Day along with it) that has no fixed weekday. That makes comparisons with other years more tricky. Last year July 4 fell on a Saturday (Friday was also a day off), with the result that the »

Swing, Tarzan, Swing! Ch.6: Two Horny Simpletons Walk Into the Jungle...

20 June 2016 5:57 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

As we approach the release of The Legend of Tarzan (2016) we're ogling past screen incarnations of the ape man...

While there's plentiful competition for "Worst" Tarzan movie in the first 90 years of ape-man cinema, there's no competition whatsoever in the annals of Official Tarzan movies for "Least Tarzany" of all Tarzan Movies. That dubious honor belongs to the infamous 1981 Bo Derek film. Despite sharing a name with the original Weismuller film, Tarzan is, for the first time in history, a 100% bonafide Supporting Character. That's reflected in the credits where Miles O'Keeffe is third-billed and has not a single line of dialogue and in the poster, in which he doesn't appear at all! 

For younger readers explanation is definitely necessary this time. Some stars maintain name recognition after their heyday even if younger generations aren't exactly sure why they're so famous. Other names provoke blank stares. Bo Derek, still very much »

50 Years of Fame! Inside the Twists of Fate That Led to Jodie Foster's Wild Ride as a Child Star

12 May 2016 9:10 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Here's one from the what-if files: What if Jodie Foster's star-making turn never happened? The double Oscar winner, who's celebrating half a century in show business, almost never got the chance to make Taxi Driver, the movie that cemented her place in Hollywood history. Sure, we think of Foster as Hollywood royalty now. But the actress, whose fourth film as a director, Money Monster, comes out Friday, might just be yet another anonymous Yale grad if it weren't for fate. The 53-year-old first got into the business by a stroke of luck. Her mother, Evelyn "Brandy" Almond, toted 3-year-old »

Dazzler Easter Egg Revealed in X-Men: Apocalypse

29 April 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yes! She has finally arrived! For years, fans have wondered if we'd ever get to see the Disco dancing mutant know as Dazzler in an X-Men movie. While she only seems to be getting a quick cameo in the form of an Easter egg, the iconic 70s Marvel superhero is alive and well in 1983, and from the looks of the latest X-Men: Apocalypse sneak peek, the singing superhero has dropped a new album that's caught the attention of Cyclops and Jean Grey.

This latest image comes courtesy of star Sophie Turner, who debuted Dazzler on her personal Twitter page. We're not sure who the model is playing Dazzler. Here's what the future Dark Phoenix had to say about this LP from the white jumpsuit wearing mutant.

"#Fbf that time Cyclops and I went shopping at the mall and found our favorite singer's album (pre 1989, of course)"

Why Did Margot Robbie Punch Alexander Skarsgard During a 'Tarzan' Sex Scene?

30 March 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While The Legend of Tarzan is aiming for a PG-13 rating, this adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' popular novel series is serving up its sex scenes on the slightly violent side. As director David Yates explains it, he sees Jane, played by Margot Robbie, as a raw, wild creature who knows how to tame Lord Greystoke, played by Alexander Skarsg&#229rd. Especially when it comes to his bedside manner. The director actually had the actress slap, then punch Tarzan during one of their erotic love making scenes.

"They're doing this love scene together, and I said [to Robbie], 'Just slap Alex while you're making love, just kind of give him a punch. It was sort of an earthy, sensual moment of her enjoying sex with Alex, and the only bruise he picked up during the entire shoot was probably that punch from Margot. Which says a lot about her feistiness."

[Review] Eddie the Eagle

9 February 2016 11:59 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary attracted more absurd hopefuls than coffee shops in Los Angeles. The collection of oddballs meant that the Jamaican bobsledders of Cool Runnings weren’t the least plausible competitors to be led by a disgraced American pro that year: there was also a stubborn, tubby amateur skier named Eddie Edwards.

Eddie the Eagle’s charming true story, facts futzed to create a more Disneyfied tale (no living in a mental institution due to poverty, etc) and dismissed by Edwards himself as about 10% accurate, tracks the unlikely Edwards (a wonderfully engaging Taron Egerton) from amateur to England’s record-holding Olympian.

Like Napoleon Dynamite on skis, Edwards’ awkwardness lost an Olympic bid in his chosen event (downhill speed skiing), while the the snobbish British selection committee’s classism stamped out any dreams of re-qualification. A thoroughly British sports movie, the strata between the posh and lower class takes »
