2009: The Truffles – The HeyUGuys Awards

30 December 2009 2:32 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With the proliferation of Top Tens and Best Of lists on the internet at this time of year we wanted to try something a little different.

2009 was an important year for the business of cinema; games were changed with the acquiescence of audiences to the notion of 3D, low budgets met with large returns, old franchises spawned reboots and rebakes with varying success, the British film industry remained strong and gave us some bright new stars in our sky.

We asked our writers to come up with an alternative set of awards which would honour those films, directors and actors who made 2009 such an enjoyable year. Strong emotions are rendered in strong language, be warned if words offend.

So, here now, I present to you our awards for 2009 – The Truffles.

Tracy

2009 meant, for me, the respectable return to sci-fi.  Star Trek, District 9, Moon and now Avatar showed that sci-fi »

2010 movie preview: 15 films you probably didn’t know you should be excited for

29 December 2009 9:37 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

A few days back John made the rather excellent list of 15 films that are sure to get audience’s pulses racing with anticipation for next year. Yet away from the marketing hype, pre-release publicity and away from the A-List names there are a slew of movies that, whilst not overly commercially minded, look like they may just be delightful. Some might be sleeper hits, some might not. Either way here is a list of 15 films, five each from the U.S., Asia and Europe, you may not have heard of to look out for next year:

The United States

The Fighter

Perhaps tainted by Christian Bale’s lost lustre or director David O. Russell’s reputation, The Fighter is receiving much less attention than I initially envisioned. Mark Wahlberg is to star in the lead role of professional boxer “Irish” Micky Ward with Bale as his half brother. The Fighter »

Harry Potter And The Half-blood Prince Blu-ray Review

27 December 2009 3:58 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Harry Potter series is something that has been running at the same time as the book were being written, and it’s hard not to wonder how much one commented and shaped the other. J. K. Rowling has suggested certain things be in the film because of end payoffs, and now we can see what she was hoping for as the books are done. With Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I think it’s fair to say that this film isn’t the sixth film in the series, even though it is, but meant to be the start of a trilogy. My review of the sixth Harry Potter episode will continue if you click the continue reading link (I dare you).

Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) has grown up and is almost nearly on his own, but dealing in the aftermath of the last film’s mess, which involved Sirious Black getting killed. »

New Alice in Wonderland Creature Images

27 December 2009 4:44 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Disney has released a new batch of character stills for director Tim Burton's latest movie, Alice in Wonderland. Based on the books by Lewis Carroll, Burton's Alice tells the story of adult Alice's (played by Mia Wasikowska) return to Wonderland and her quest to dethrone the wicked Red Queen ( Helena Bonham Carter).

Previous images and posters have focused mainly on the human and human-looking characters of Alice, the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp) and the Red Queen, but these new images put the spotlight on some of the bizarre creatures that populate the whimsical Wonderland landscape. In addition to a clearer image of the Caterpillar previously seen on the movie's official Facebook page, the new stills include the White Rabbit, March Hare, Doormouse, and Cheshire Cat.

All the highlights for TV this Christmas

24 December 2009 2:20 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It's David Tennant's last Doctor Who, Victoria Wood and Julie Walters are sharing a midlife crisis, Wallander reaches for his trusty cagoule – and there's a Gruffalo on the loose.

Christmas Eve

The Snowman

(Channel 4, 1.35pm)

Twenty-seven years after it first wedged its slipper in the door of Christmas TV tradition, Raymond Briggs's stunning tale of a young boy's friendship with a snowman remains one of the few repeats not to elicit a howl of exasperation. A dialogue-free treatise on the fleeting nature of innocence, its wobbly, pastel-hued evocation of childhood still induces a chorus of scraped-back chairs as a million dads dash to the loo on the grounds of having "chopped too many onions".

Carols from King's

(BBC2, 6.15pm)

In their annual concert from Cambridge, the chapel choir of King's College present highlights from The Best Non-Secular Xmas Album in the World . . . Ever! While parishioners stifle sneezes beneath the late-gothic fan vaulting, »

Penguins, Nicole Kidman and Narnia – Paul Howlett picks his film highlights

Christmas Eve

Over the Hedge

(Tim Johnson, Karey Kirkpatrick, 2006) 4.25pm, BBC1

A DreamWorks animated adventure in which Rj, the cynical racoon (laconically voiced by Bruce Willis) teaches a burrowful of innocent woodland animals to forage off the waste of an encroaching housing estate rather than rely on boring old natural food, before inevitably seeing the error of his ways. Plenty of good slapstick fun for kids and cine-literate gags for adults, although it all seems a bit glib compared to Shrek and co.

Corpse Bride

(Tim Burton, Mike Johnson, 2005) 6pm, ITV1

Life, in Burton's typically weird and ghoulish fantasy, is a dull, grey affair: death is much more colourful and fun, as young Victor (voiced by Johnny Depp) discovers when he is whisked into the underworld by the maggoty Corpse Bride (Helena Bonham Carter). Trouble is, he's in love »

Attend The Tea Party In The New Alice In Wonderland Image

23 December 2009 10:46 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Last night on my way into Avatar, my family and I passed a giant cardboard cutout ad for Alice in Wonderland, prompting my sister to first ask the name of the weird guy directing it-- Tim Burton-- and then if she knew anyone in the cast. She pegged Anne Hathaway pretty quickly, and my mom got Helena Bonham Carter, but that weird guy in the middle with the orange contacts stumped 'em all. It's Johnny Depp, of course, for those of us who have been watching the marketing closely. But if you're curious about the image that fascinated my family so much, JoBlo has snagged it as a good old-fashioned jpeg file. It's basically all of the main characters attending the tea party, with the caterpillar hanging out creepily in the background. Obviously the image you see below isn't as wide as it gets, so click on it for »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Five

23 December 2009 10:10 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Four

19 December 2009 11:50 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Georgia

Opens: 2010

Cast: Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Johnathon Schaech

Director: Renny Harlin

Summary: An American journalist, his cameraman, and a Georgian native get caught in the crossfire of the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008, and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial.

Analysis: A timely parable on war, or Hollywood propaganda filmmaking at its worst? Wherever it goes, especially in Europe and the former Soviet states, "Georgia" will cause a lot of talk and controversy as the incidents depicted are still so fresh in many's minds. Like all topics of the sort, it'll also have its strong supporters and detractors having opinions on the film long before a frame of footage is screened anywhere.

Shot on-location in Tbilisi, the project also marks a potential return to form for Finnish director Renny Harlin. Given the right material the skilled action director delivered three »

DVD Playhouse—December 2009

By

Allen Gardner

Public Enemies (Universal) Johnny Depp portrays legendary Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger in co- writer/director Michael Mann’s take on America’s first “Public Enemy Number One.” Like many big studio releases today, Public Enemies has it all: A-list talent before and behind the camera, but lacks a heart or soul that allows its audience to connect with it. Film plays out like a “true crime” TV show with re-enactments of famous events cast with top actors and shot by the best technicians in the business, with little, if any, character or story development to hold it together in between. A real disappointment from one of our finest filmmakers and finest actors. The lone standout: the great character actor Stephen Lang as a hard-eyed lawman who’s seen a lot, but manages to retain a tiny piece of his heart. For a better take on the same subject, »
