From Batman to The Shadow Line: Hugo Blick's amazing career

3 July 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Hugo Blick returns to television tonight with BBC Two's The Honourable Woman - a new eight-part thriller starring Maggie Gyllenhaal as Nessa Stein, the daughter of an arms dealer caught up in an international political crisis.

In his 25-plus years in the business, Blick has led a long, varied and deeply interesting career - penning some of British television's best and most ground-breaking comedies and dramas and even branching out into acting.

Digital Spy presents Blick's career highlights - from a surprising debut to his noirish masterpiece.

Batman (1989)

Even ardent fans of Blick's work might be surprised to learn that he made his screen debut not as a writer but an actor, portraying the younger version of Jack Nicholson's Napier - alias the Joker - in Tim Burton's gothic big-screen take on the Dark Knight.

Blick appears only briefly in the film, but with that broad, sinister grin and icy blue eyes, »

Blu-ray Review – Porky’s (1982)

23 June 2014 3:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Porky’s, 1982

Directed by Bob Clark

Starring Dan Monahan, Mark Herrier, Wyatt Knight, Roger Wilson, Cyril O’Reilly, Tony Ganois, Kaki Hunter, Kim Cattrall, Nancy Parsons, Scott Colomby, Boyd Gaines, Doug McGrath, Chuck Mitchell and Alex Karras

Synopsis:

Set in 1954, a group of Florida high schoolers seek out to help a buddy lose his virginity, which leads them to seek revenge on a sleazy nightclub owner and his redneck sheriff brother for harassing them.

Before Van Wilder, before American Pie, there was Porky’s. The “raunchy” sex comedy that delivered on one promise: if you went to see the movie, you would see boobs. It has held a legacy that is unrivalled with many comedy directors saying that this was the movie that made them want to get into filmmaking. It was lambasted by critics upon its release in 1982 for being too racy, but now 32 years on some people may »

Kurt Russell's 5 best movie roles - from Plissken to Elvis Presley

20 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Like a long-lost childhood friend returning after years in the wilderness, Kurt Russell is finally back on leading man duties in new heist caper The Art of the Steal. To celebrate the perennially-mulleted icon's return to the big screen, here's a look at five of his classic roles...

Elvis Presley - Elvis (1979)

Made just two years after the American icon's tragic demise and therefore placed under intense scrutiny by a still-devastated public, John Carpenter's TV movie Elvis managed to win over those suspicious minds with a terrific portrayal of the hip-shaking star by the Emmy-nominated Russell.

Such an iconic, identifiable, and effectively deified figure was never going to be a simple task to imitate - just look at the casting issues over Freddie Mercury in the planned biopic. It speaks volumes for Russell's versatility that he donned the blue suede shoes with such assurance to deliver a rousing performance »

‘Porkys’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

15 June 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Dan Monahan, Mark Herrier, Wyatt Knight, Roger Wilson, Cyril O’Reilly, Tony Ganios, Kaki Hunter, Kim Cattrall, Nancy Parsons, Boyd Gaines, Doug McGrath, Chuck Mitchell, Alex Karras | Written and Directed by Bob Clark

When we think of the rise of the teen sex comedy in the current movie generation the focus easily moves to American Pie and maybe even Superbad.  The brashness and move against being controlled by the ratings system pushed the boundaries of what could be included on-screen.  Looking back to the eighties though there was a movie that arguably created the blueprint from which these films would work from.  That film was Bob Clark’s Porky’s.

Set in 1954 we see a group of high school kids from Florida, trying to find the best way to get their friend Pee-Wee (Dan Monahan) laid, and finally “lose his cherry”.  With a few disastrous failures under their belt, »

Porky’s Blu-Ray Review

13 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

 

Director: Bob Clark.

Cast: Don Monahan, Mark Herrier, Kim Cattrall, Wyatt Knight.

Running Time: 98 minutes.

Certificate: 18.

Special Features: Audio commentary with director Bob Clark, Porky’s Through the Peephole featurette, Skin Classic! featurette, Trailers.

First things first, although one of the earliest instances of a teen comedy, up until a few days ago I had never seen Porkys, meaning that my viewing for the Blu-Ray re-release was through fresh eyes from a member of a different generation. I understand that the film is seen as a pioneer of the teen comedy genre, with Porkys being the American Pie of the time; whilst it may once have been innovative, it personally left me cold.

Call me picky, but I like some plot to my films and Porky’S is exceptionally anemic in this section. It was just teenage boys being horny jokesters which, whilst amusing to some, just doesn’t »

'Big Trouble in Little China' Returns as a Comic Book from John Carpenter

9 May 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While 80s movie fans await the inevitable news that Big Trouble in Little China will be either remade or rebooted as a franchise with a younger, handsomer Jack Burton, it was announced today that director John Carpenter is returning to the 1986 cult classic starring Kurt Russell, only this time in comic book form. That's right, ol' Jack Burton will live again in a series of all-new adventures featuring some of the movie's best characters. Coolest part is, it picks up with Jack's hideous hitchhiker as seen at the thrilling climax of the original movie, creating what is essentially a true sequel that takes place at Wang's wedding. In stores June 4th!

In Defence Of... Crossroads, Britney Spears's big-screen debut

3 May 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fluffy 'find yourself' road movie Crossroads marked pop princess Britney Spears's first and (to date) last foray into film acting. Written by Grey's Anatomy and Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes and directed by Tamra Davis, it was released in 2002, shortly after Spears's third album, Britney, with three of the songs from that album ('I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman', 'Overprotected' and her cover version of 'I Love Rock 'n' Roll') featuring on the soundtrack.

Made for around $11m, Crossroads was a moderate box office success with a worldwide gross of around $61m. But the critics were not kind: the film ended up with a pitifully low 14% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is usually the sign of – not to put too fine a point on it – an out-and-out stinker. This, frankly, will not stand. Crossroads may be laden with clichés and there's no doubt that its cheese factor is high, »

Frank review: Fassbender excels in fascinating tale - Sundance London 2014

26 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Lenny Abrahamson Screenwriter Jon Ronson, Peter Straughan; Starring: Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal Running time: 95 mins; Certificate: 15

Who needs a face to act? Michael Fassbender delivers a mesmerising portrayal of papier-mâché headed cult hero Frank Sidebottom in this loveably eccentric and poignant movie. It manages to encompass a vast array of themes dealing with old and new, light and dark, life and death, while never feeling convoluted and anything less than pure.

Inspired by The Men Who Stare At Goats author Jon Ronson's real-life experiences in Sidebottom's band, Frank is far from a biopic in story if not essence. The tale unfolds through the eyes of Jon Burroughs (Domhnall Gleeson), an impressionable young office drone who lands a spot in Frank's band as a keyboard player after the previous incumbent opts to drown himself in water rather than sound.

Key And Peele Will Produce Police Academy Remake

7 April 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Buddy cop comedies are popular once more, following on the heels of 21 Jump Street, The Heat, and even Kevin Smith’s ill-fated Cop Out. As Hollywood bids to remake every film made in the 1980s and 90s, it’s therefore no surprise that a remake of the 1984 cop comedy Police Academy is at the top of everyone’s list. To this end, comedy team Key and Peele have stepped in to produce the Police Academy remake.

Best known for their Comedy Central show Key and Peele, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are now taking on the roles of producers for the screwy comic franchise, according to THR (via /Film). While this does not mean that they will also be appearing in the remake, one can always hope. Their involvement may certainly move Police Academy from being an ill-conceived money grab to a film of great comedic potential.
