‘Atomic Blonde’ Review

14 August 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella, Bill Skarsgård, John Goodman, Toby Jones, Roland Moller | Written by Kurt Johnstad | Based on “The Coldest City” by Antony Johnston & Sam Hart | Directed by David Leitch

An ice cool Charlize Theron kicks plenty of ass in this stylish Cold War action thriller from the co-director of John Wick, but the script leaves a lot to be desired.

Sporting a distractingly dodgy British accent and a Debbie Harry-style peroxide blonde hair-do, Theron plays MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton, who’s sent into Cold War Berlin to investigate the murder of a fellow agent (Sam Hargrave) and recover a missing list of undercover agents. Her contact in Berlin is shady MI6 station officer David Percival (James McAvoy), who seems to have gone a little too deep undercover as a contraband-toting wheeler-dealer and appears to have his own agenda.

Sure enough, Lorraine »

Movie Review – Atomic Blonde (2017)

13 August 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Atomic Blonde, 2017.

Directed by David Leitch.

Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Eddie Marsan, John Goodman, Toby Jones, Bill Skarsgard, and Sofia Boutella.

Synopsis:

An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.

Following on from Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, Charlize Theron is now beating the crap out of a ton of people on David Leitch’s Atomic Blonde. Theron’s reinvention as an action star has been fascinating to watch and Atomic Blonde is great if you want an enjoyable spy movie with a strong female lead who can go toe to toe with anyone she comes up against.

The plot is a little convoluted to say the least but Theron is Lorraine Broughton; an undercover MI6 agent who’s sent to Berlin just before the wall is due to fall. »

Luc Besson is tired of superhero movies, calls Captain America “propaganda”

12 August 2017 5:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from the box office failure of his own comic book adaptation Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, French filmmaker Luc Besson has been sharing his thoughts on the superhero genre, revealing that he’s become bored of the films, and feels that the Captain America franchise in particular is little more than “propaganda”.

“Totally tired of it,” said Besson when asked by CinePop what he makes of the superhero movie craze. “It was great 10 years ago when we see the first Spider-Man and Iron Man. But now, it’s like number five, six, seven; the superhero is working with another superhero, but it’s not the same family. I’m lost. But what bothers me most is it’s always here to show the supremacy of America and how they are great. I mean, which country in the world would have the guts to call a film ‘Captain Brazil’ or ‘Captain France? »

Atomic Blonde movie review: bland ambition

11 August 2017 7:03 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… The living, breathing, bleeding life of the breathtaking fight scenes cannot overcome confusingly twisty spy intrigue and multiple male gazes on the story. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women; love spy stuff

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Berlin, 1989. The Wall is about to fall, but the Cold War isn’t over yet. MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron: The Fate of the Furious, Kubo and the Two Strings) is sent in to retrieve a missing list of all spies and operatives on all sides, if she can find it before the Soviets do. It’s an “atomic bomb of information,” not least because the list includes the identity of a double agent known as Satchel. Atomic Blonde — I guess because she’s so hot? »

Movie Review – Atomic Blonde (2017)

9 August 2017 2:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Atomic Blonde, 2017.

Directed by David Leitch.

Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Til Schweiger, Eddie Marsan, Sofia Boutella, Toby Jones, Bill Skarsgård, Sam Hargrave, James Faulkner, and Roland Møller.

Synopsis:

An undercover MI6 agent is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents.

All the hallmarks to compare Atomic Blonde to John Wick are there: one-half of the John Dick directorial team, the stunt-choreographer-cum-filmmaker David Leitch is directing this film; the protagonist is an efficient, reputable, and skilful killer; the fight sequences are visually incredible, with Atomic Blonde offering one sequence that many will talk about long after seeing it (more shall be discussed later); it has the retro-aesthetic reminiscent of action years from the 80s and 90s, which in Atomic Blonde‘s instance the film is set in the late 80s; Charlize Theron »

Norman Lear Says It Was ‘A Very Simple Decision’ Not to Attend the White House’s Kennedy Center Reception

7 August 2017 1:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Producing icon Norman Lear’s decision to skip the White House reception before the Kennedy Center Honors isn’t political, he said, but rather in reaction to the Trump administration’s stance on the arts and humanities.

Lear will attend the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony on Dec. 3, but he’s believed to be the first honoree to skip the reception beforehand.

“I think of it as a very simple decision,” Lear told reporters Monday at the Television Critics Association press tour. “The Kennedy Center is about the arts and humanities. I’m someone who believes when the world is safe for everybody, the arts will have played a large part of that.”

Lear criticized the Trump presidency for turning “its back on the arts and refuses to fund the arts and humanities. I can’t imagine wishing to go there. Its not political but for that. You can imagine how I feel about the individual. »

John Goodman’s Dan Conner confirmed alive in Roseanne revival, Johnny Galecki in talks to return

7 August 2017 12:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although John Goodman was part of the initial casting announcement for the Roseanne TV series revival, it remained uncertain as to what capacity he would feature, due to the fact that during the ninth and final season the show took some bizarre creative directions, including killing off loving husband Dan Conner.

Well, at the Television Critics Association, ABC has confirmed that one of the storylines being reversed in the ninth season is Dan’s heart attack and subsequent death, with ABC’s Channing Dungey stating that while the finale will not be ignored, “I can confirm that Dan is still alive”.

Meanwhile, it has also been announced that The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki is in talks to reprise his role as David, where he’d join the returning Goodman, Roseanne BarrLaurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman and Alicia Goranson.

Second Opinion – Atomic Blonde (2017)

7 August 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Atomic Blonde, 2017.

Directed by David Leitch.

Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Eddie Marsan, Toby Jones, and Sofia Boutella.

Synopsis:

In the run up to the fall of the Berlin Wall, top MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (Charlize Theron) is sent on a solo mission to the city. She’s charged with investigating the death of another agent but, more importantly, has to retrieve and smuggle out an invaluable dossier.  She teams up with local agent David Percival (James McAvoy) to find her way through a maze of double-crossing.

Atomic Blonde is Charlize Theron’s film.  She dominates it: you can count the number of times she’s not on the screen with the fingers of one hand.  She did nearly all her own stunts – a few were ruled out because of insurance costs – and she injured herself while getting ready for the role.  Plus, of course, she’s a producer. »

'Roseanne' Reboot Will Feature Major Storyline Tweak, Johnny Galecki May Return

6 August 2017 1:28 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There will be a major tweak to Roseanne for the upcoming reboot.

More than two decades after Roseanne went off the air in 1997 after nine seasons on ABC, the series finale revealed that John Goodman’s character, Dan, had died of a heart attack. It was also discovered that Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) was a lesbian and that Darlene (Sara Gilbert) and Becky (Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke) swapped significant others, while the entire ninth season story was dreamt up by Roseanne Conner (Roseanne Barr).

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey revealed Sunday at the summer Television Critics Association press tour that Goodman's character is very much alive.

"Dan is very much alive," Dungey confirmed, clarifying that the revival won’t necessarily be "ignoring the events of the finale." "I'm not going to talk too specifically [about the aftermath of the finale revelations]."

Johnny Galecki is in talks to reprise his role as David Healy on ABC’s upcoming revival of “Roseanne.”

“Those conversations are still in progress,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said Sunday at the Television Critics Association press tour. Galecki is entering his 11th season as star on CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.” Original stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Lauri Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman, and Alicia Goranson have already confirmed that they will return for the revival.

Dungey addressed plot and production questions about the forthcoming revival, which is scheduled for midseason, as well as about star Barr’s Twitter feed — where the comedian has become an active proponent of President Donald Trump and conspiracy theories. “I try to worry about things that I can control,” Dungey said.

The ABC chief also assured reporters that the new series, under the guidance of executive producer Tom Werner, would be similar in tone and approach the the original »

‘Last Man Standing’ Cancellation Had Nothing to Do with Tim Allen’s Politics, ABC Exec Says

6 August 2017 11:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Last Man Standing” had been on the bubble for several years, and its eventual cancellation had nothing to do with politics, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey reiterated on Sunday.

Asked whether star Tim Allen’s conservative leanings led to the show’s ax after six seasons, Dungey told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour that “politics had nothing to do with it. We have actors on our shows with all sorts of political views.”

“Last Man Standing,” she said, “was a show that several years running came up to the very end in terms of renewal.” This year, the network “couldn’t find room.”

Dungey still called Allen a valuable member of “the ABC family,” and indeed, “Home Improvement” was one of the network’s biggest shows of the 1990s – and Allen is, »
