Endeavour series 2 episode 3 review: Sway

1 hour ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Gem Wheeler 16 Apr 2014 - 17:29

Morse is on the scent of serial killer in the latest episode of Endeavour. Here's Gem's review of Sway...

This review contains spoilers.

2.3 Sway

A serial killer is stalking Oxford in autumn 1966, and Vivienne Haldane, wife of an eminent physicist at the university, is the latest victim. Morse quickly establishes a pattern to the murders; apart from the fact that all three dead women were found with a particular brand of expensive silk stocking, ‘Le Minou Noir’, around their necks, each was married, but has had her wedding ring removed by the killer. Pathologist Dr DeBryn finds that Mrs Haldane had had intercourse not long before her death, but it was certainly not with husband Rufus (Michael Thomas), from whom she had long been estranged. The hunt is on for a murderer with a type: married women who he seduces and kills, for reasons »

Watch: More Michael Caine Impressions In 2 Clips From 'The Trip To Italy' With Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon

21 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's “The Trip” was a hard thing to pin down: it was a BBC TV series that was recut into a movie, and a travel documentary that didn't really document anything much, in which the two British comedians played some indeterminately exaggerated/scripted/improvised versions of themselves. But despite nobody quite knowing what it was, a lot of people liked its meandering, mild comedy style and the interactions of the two master comedians: hence the similarly imprecise sequel, “The Trip To Italy,” now playing on BBC and to be released by IFC Films (in a shorter movie format) in the U.S. sometime later in the year. Ahead of that premiere, the BBC has released a couple more clips, and like one we saw a few weeks ago, one of the new scenes also plays on the most successful (or at least most viral) moment »

Mark Millar's 'Superior' Comic Adaptation Moves Forward at Fox

15 April 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox has picked up the rights to Mark Millar's comic book Superior for a feature adaptation to be produced by Matthew Vaughn.

He is visited by an alien monkey and granted one wish, which he uses to become his favorite superhero, a Superman-esque character dubbed Superior. As Simon begins to enjoy the spoils of his new life, he soon realizes that this monkey is actually from hell, and he must either sell his soul to remain this powerful hero, or return to to his crippled body.

The studio is currently searching for a writer to adapt the comic book, with Matt Reilly overseeing the project.

Greatest TV Pilots: Queer As Folk – A Cultural Milestone

14 April 2014 11:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Queer As Folk, Season 1, Episode 1 “Pilot”

Directed by Charles McDougall

Written by Russell T. Davies

Original Air Date: 23 February 1999

That Certain Summer, a made for TV movie, airs as the ABC Movie of the Week. It is the first TV movie to deal with the subject of homosexuality cordially. In 1975, ABC debuts Hot l Baltimore, a short lived Norman Lear series, which features the first gay couple on TV. In 1991, the first kiss between a homosexual couple airs on network TV during an episode of L.A. Law. In 1989 an episode of the Us drama thirtysomething featured the first gay male couple to be shown in bed together. The brief clip is considered a TV landmark, and of course proved extremely controversial at the time.

After Rooney's Death, Who Is Earliest Surviving Best Actor Academy Award Nominee?

8 April 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Mickey Rooney was earliest surviving Best Actor Oscar nominee (photo: Mickey Rooney and Spencer Tracy in ‘Boys Town’) (See previous post: “Mickey Rooney Dead at 93: MGM’s Andy Hardy Series’ Hero and Judy Garland Frequent Co-Star Had Longest Film Career Ever?”) Mickey Rooney was the earliest surviving Best Actor Academy Award nominee — Babes in Arms, 1939; The Human Comedy, 1943 — and the last surviving male acting Oscar nominee of the 1930s. Rooney lost the Best Actor Oscar to two considerably more “prestigious” — albeit less popular — stars: Robert Donat for Sam Wood’s Goodbye, Mr. Chips (1939) and Paul Lukas for Herman Shumlin’s Watch on the Rhine (1943). Following Mickey Rooney’s death, there are only two acting Academy Award nominees from the ’30s still alive: two-time Best Actress winner Luise Rainer, 104 (for Robert Z. Leonard’s The Great Ziegfeld, 1936, and Sidney Franklin’s The Good Earth, 1937), and Best Supporting Actress nominee Olivia de Havilland, »

Christopher Nolan Kept 'Interstellar' Plot Secret from Hans Zimmer

7 April 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seems Christopher Nolan has a knack of letting everyone -- the audience and his collaborators -- know only what he wants them to know when it comes to his movies before what he determines to be the right time. In the case of Interstellar we still don't know too much even though an old draft of the screenplay is floating around and the fact we know it's about wormholes and a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass, what the synopsis calls, the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage. Got thatc Well, that may or may not be more information than Nolan gave his Inception composer, Hans Zimmer, before he began work on the film's score. Speaking with British GQ (via Wdef), Zimmer said, "All I will say is this: before I began, last January, »

Anne Hathaway on Interstellar: 'Matthew McConaughey was inspiring'

7 April 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Anne Hathaway has discussed the experience of working with Matthew McConaughey on Interstellar.

The pair star in Christopher Nolan's mysterious upcoming science fiction drama, which is described as "a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding".

"We did call each other by our character names," Hathaway told Digital Spy, when asked about McConaughey's reportedly method approach to recent roles. "But in a really organic way - if he is method, he doesn't do it in a way that's alienating.

"He's just a very easy guy to be around, he's very inspiring as a human being, and he takes real delight in life. He approaches things from a place of deep respect and deep joy, and I just had the best time working with him.

"I always loved him before, you know - he's Matthew McConaughey, he's a fun time! But my respect for him deepened so much, »

R.I.P Mickey Rooney, 1920-2014

7 April 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In the wake of Mickey Rooney's death Sunday at age 93, much will be written -- and should be written -- about his glory days at MGM, his multiple co-star pairings with Judy Garland, and his lengthy run in the once-popular Andy Hardy franchise. But, truth to tell, I will continue to remember Rooney best for two of his finest achievements as a character actor: His brutally effective turn as the title character in Don Siegel's gritty gangster biopic "Baby Face Nelson" (1957), and his hilarious portrayal of a pompous retired movie star who makes the wrong people nervous when he announces plans to pen a tell-all autobiography with the help of a ghost writer (Michael Caine) in Mike Hodges' comedy-drama "Pulp" (1972). More at Moving Picture Blog.

The Secret Lives of Christopher Nolan Movies

6 April 2014 6:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Christopher Nolan has gone Interstellar.

It’s a half-hearted pun that many have made since last August, when the title and basic premise of Nolan’s latest film was first announced. With a November release date set, and only the most teasing of teaser trailers put forward, little is known of the project beyond its startlingly starry cast. Anticipation couldn’t be more feverish, an indicator just how much the English filmmaker has grown in the 14 years since Memento, his first cinematic effort and instant classic. In many ways, he has replaced the listless Ridley Scott as one of the movie business’ most exciting exponents, his every release dripping in not just hype but substantial promise.

He may have lost essential and trusted cinematographer Wally Pfister, who has enjoyed Transcendence into the realms of directing himself (another half hearted word play), but this has not diminished Nolan as a force. »

The Trip to Italy TV review

4 April 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It's funny business as usual, as Coogan and Brydon impersonate their way through Italy in this reinvented travelogue

"We're not going to be doing any impersonations are we, cos we talked about that," says Steve Coogan to Rob Brydon, as they drive their convertible Mini along a twisty Piedmond road near the start of The Trip to Italy (BBC2). Except they are, obviously, because Brydon has just slipped into Tom Jones. And Ronnie Corbett and Al Pacino and of course Coogan can't help joining in.

Good, because the impersonations are one of the brilliant things about The Trip. Not so much the impersonations themselves, but rather the way Coogan and Brydon do them, slipping in a Wogan here, a Morrissey there. Or both doing Michael Caine in a Caine-off. And the other will take on an opposite role, a camp assistant director to Tom Hardy's incomprehensible Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, »

The Trip's funniest moments: Michael Caine, Richard Gere and more

4 April 2014 5:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Trip to Italy kicks off tonight at 10pm on BBC Two - but before we join Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon on a jovial jaunt from Piemonte to Capri, let's cast our minds back to 2010 to recall a few of the funniest moments from the first series.

Four years back, The Trip saw Coogan and Brydon embark on a restaurant tour of the north of England - enjoying good food, tolerating each other's company and competing furiously throughout.

"That's how Michael Caine speaks."

"She was only 16 years old!" - Steve and Rob are both expert Michael Caine impersonators and while Brydon arguably edges it, you have to admire the technical precision of Coogan's take - in particular, he nails the 'broken voice'.

"You were thinking of doing Anthony Hopkins, weren't you?"

The pair get increasingly passionate - and loud - as they compete to see who can do the »

Christopher Nolan Wouldn't Even Tell Composer Hans Zimmer What 'Interstellar' Is About

4 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Christopher Nolan is notorious for his secrecy about his film projects, and that goes double for his upcoming movie, "Interstellar." But you'd think Nolan would relent a bit when it comes to his collaborators, and at least let, say, the composer of the film's score know a little bit about the plot, right?

According to Hans Zimmer, who wrote the "Interstellar" score, the answer is no. In an interview with British GQ, Zimmer revealed that Nolan wouldn't let him see the script before he began working on the movie's music. In fact, Nolan told him almost nothing at all about the sci-fi flick.

"All I will say is this: before I began, last January, Chris said to me, 'Hans, I will write one page of text for you. And you will give me just one day. Just write whatever comes to you from this one single page,'" Zimmer said. »

From the Big Screen to the West End Stage – Dirty Rotten Scoundrels opens in London

3 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Taking successful stage productions and bringing them to the big screen has spawned a variety of accolades and success across the years. Oscar winners ranging from Casablanca, to West Side Story, and from My Fair Lady to The Sound of Music, all the way to Chicago – it’s a common stomping ground for filmmakers to explore.

But how about the other way around? To see many of our favourite films re-imagined on the stage is becoming something of a regularity – and with the quite brilliant adaptation of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, which has just opened in London’s West End – it seems to be an enlightening, triumphant process, which could well pave the way for many others to appear.

Originally, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was a successful comedy feature, directed by Frank Oz and starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin in the lead roles. Now, Jerry Mitchell is at the helm, having »

The Trip to Italy Returns – Our Report From a Special Preview Screening

3 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

There have been few television comedies this side of the millennium that have been quite as ingenious, funny and poignant as Michael Winterbottom’s The Trip. Starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, playing themselves, the eagerly anticipated second series ‘The Trip to Italy’ begins this coming Friday, April 4 – and we were fortunate enough to witness a special sneak peak ahead of the eventual broadcast.

Taking place in a central London location, we were, amongst many other lucky fans of the series, able to indulge in two episodes of the show, while both Coogan and Brydon themselves were in attendance, taking part in a post-screening questions and answers session. Our first reaction is that the show appears to follow a similar formula to the first – which can only be a good thing.

Instead, our two protagonists are in Italy, once again embarking on a tour of highbrow, cultured restaurants, as a »

Woody Allen Wednesdays - Another Woman & Hannah and Her Sisters

2 April 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Every Wednesday, FM writers Simon Columb and Brogan Morris write two short reviews on Woody Allen films ... in the hope of watching all his films over the course of roughly 49 weeks. If you have been watching Woody's films and want to join in, feel free to comment with short reviews yourself! Next up is Another Woman & Hannah and Her Sisters...

Simon Columb on Another Woman...

Marion Post (Gena Rowlands) didn’t realise she was hated. An upper middle-class intellectual (like many of Woody Allen’s characters), she’s a professor of Philosophy who overhears a neighbour (Mia Farrow) revealing her private life to a psychiatrist. Self-disciplined and successful, Marion should be considered an inspiration – but alas, she lacks passion. Her husband (Ian Holm) mocks the idea of sex on the floorboards and the potential lover (Gene Hackman) that got away was rebuffed despite a mutual attraction. Bearing similarities to his latest film, »

Samuel L. Jackson on Nick Fury, Race in Hollywood, and the Laurence Fishburne Incident

1 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Here at Moviefone, we think America's greatness should be celebrated all year long -- or, at the very least, for an extra week. That's why we're declaring March 31 - April 4 "America F@$& Yeah" week, with five days of patriotic interviews and features that honor America and the movies.

I'm nervous. Why? Because I'm about to enter a room and interview Samuel L. Jackson, one of those great actors who kind of defines the term "badass" in Hollywood. You need attitude, a sharp tongue, and a withering way with words? Call Samuel L. Jackson.

Marvel called him seven years ago to play Nick Fury, director of covert government agency S.H.I.E.L.D., in a cameo at the end of the first "Iron Man," and has kept him on speed dial ever since. Now, having played Fury six times -- and being bumped up to a lead in "The Avengers" and this week's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier »
