The fantasist: The comic art of Woody Allen

15 hours ago | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

Everyone knows Woody Allen. At least, everyone thinks they know Woody Allen. His plumage is easily identifiable: horn-rimmed glasses, baggy suit, wispy hair, kvetching demeanor, ironic sense of humor, acute fear of death. As is his habitat: New York City, though recently he has flown as far afield as London, Barcelona, and Paris. His likes are well known: Bergman, Dostoevsky, New Orleans jazz. So too his dislikes: spiders, cars, nature, Wagner records, the entire city of Los Angeles. Whether or not these traits represent the true Allen, who’s to say? It is impossible to tell, with Allen, where cinema ends and life begins, an obfuscation he readily encourages. In the late nineteen-seventies, disillusioned with the comedic success he’d found making such films as Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), and Annie Hall (1977), he turned for darker territory with Stardust Memories (1980), a film in which, none too surprisingly, he plays a »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

16 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Matthew Vaughn

Cast: Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 129 minutes

Synopsis: A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

Mark Miller and Matthew Vaughn (the team who brought audiences the blood-stained joy of Kick-ass) are back with Kingsman: The Secret Service, a new take on the spy film that is riotous fun and full of surprises.

When a spot opens up, each of the Kingsman spies are asked to nominate a potential candidate to take on that position. While most nominate someone of a higher class, wealth and position in society, one nominates the son of a former colleague – after getting him out of jail that is. Eggsy is persuaded to try out but the fish-out-of-water dynamic certainly presents a few challenges and as his relationship with his mentor grows, his hidden potential starts to reveal itself.

First off, there is an incredible ensemble cast to consider. »

Second Opinion – Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service, 2015.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

Starring Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Sofia Boutella, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Michael Caine and Mark Hamill.

Synopsis:

A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

The last time comic book writer Mark Millar and director Matthew Vaughn collaborated on an adaptation we got Kick-Ass, a madcap hyper-violent outrageously funny deconstruction of the superhero genre. It was lightning in a bottle, and thankfully that lightning hasn’t left as their next project, Kingsman: The Secret Service, is just as outlandish and entertaining. Imagine taking the over-the-top action sequences of Kick-Ass and mixing them with the narrative of a 60s reminiscent James Bond flick, cranked up to 50 on the absurdity scale. Sounds awesome on paper but the execution is even better.

Part of the reason why has to stem from Matthew Vaughn’s vision as a director, which »

Movie Review – Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

23 January 2015 9:14 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

Starring Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Mark Strong, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson, Michael Caine, Mark Hamill, Tom Prior and Jack Davenport

Synopsis:

A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.

Marking the second time Matthew Vaughn has directed a comic book created by Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service is a ridiculously fun movie with a wonderful sense of comic violence and a sweet heart. It’s a film that never takes itself too seriously, but treats its subject matter with respect to ensure the best cinematic experience. It may have some flaws, but there is so much to love about Kingsman: The Secret Service that they can be overlooked. Or shot at.

Matthew Vaughn left X-Men: Days of Future Past to direct Kingsman: The Secret Service based on a script he wrote with writing partner Jane Goldman »

Matthew Vaughn suggests Guardians of the Galaxy deserves award recognition, clarifies recent Dark Knight Trilogy comments

22 January 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In a recent interview for HeyUGuys Matthew Vaughn put forward the argument that superhero films are largely underappreciated in the world of cinematic award ceremonies, in particular Guardians of the Galaxy.

He suggests that the Marvel Studios film was a bigger challenge to create than a number of other films “where you just plonk a camera here and there and have a good actor”.

Vaughn also went on to comment on remarks he made about Christopher Nolan’s dark style of superhero film, which he says were taken out of context by the internet.

“What I said is Nolan is very good at doing what he did with Batman, and the subject matter of Batman deserved to be dark, but there are other superheroes, like I don’t think Superman should be dark. The clue’s in the costume, what it should be like…You have to always respect source material, »

Kingsman star Taron Egerton rules out X-Men role, wants to play Spider-Man

21 January 2015 6:44 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Taron Egerton has responded to rumours that he will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse.

The actor said that suggestions he will play Cyclops are "unfounded", but admitted that he would be open to a role in a future instalment of the film series.

Speaking to MTV, he said: "I can say I'm not doing X-Men. I love the X-Men films and I love that franchise. I love the people who make them on and off screen, so yeah I'd love to one day sometime, but in this instance that rumour is unfounded."

He added that he would be interested in playing Spider-Man if he could take on the role of any superhero.

"If I could play any superhero... my favourite superhero is Spider-Man. Andrew Garfield is wonderful at doing it to the point that I don't think I should play it," the 25-year-old.

Egerton can next be seen in Kingsman: The Secret Service alongside Colin Firth, »

Exclusive: Matthew Vaughn talks about leaving X-Men: Days of Future Past to work on Kingsman: The Secret Service

21 January 2015 12:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Prior to Bryan Singer returning to the X-Men franchise, X-Men: Days of Future Past director Matthew Vaughn was set to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past based on a treatment he’d written with writing partner Jane Goldman. However Vaughn would leave the project allowing for Singer to head back to the franchise he’d created.

While on the promotional tour for Kingsman: The Secret Service, we asked Vaughn about the decision to leave X-Men: Days of Future Past and what he made of the final project.

“It was a hard decision, I was in love with both projects,” Vaughn told us. “I wrote the treatment for X-Men [Days of the Future Past] but the script took forever to come in. And then I wrote [Kingsman: The Secret Service] in the meantime. It was actually a mixture of necessity as I was terrified another ‘fun spy movie’ would come out. Because I was thinking, ‘why has no one already done this? »
