Ken Loach's Poor Cow reviewed - archive, 1967

8 December 1967 While praising Terence Stamp’s acting, along with parts of the dialogue, Richard Roud finds Poor Cow ‘downright awful’

If I hadn’t seen Poor Cow (London Pavilion) with my own eyes, I would never have believed that a film with so much to offer could ultimately be so downright awful. I never saw any of the television films by the writer-director team, Nell Dunn and Kenneth Loach; Up the Junction was supposed to have been quite something, and there were moments in Poor Cow that hinted at a really penetrating examination of the mentality of the petty criminal.

‘Young Guns’, ‘Major League’ & ‘Ace Ventura’ Reboots All On The Way

We’re getting word from the trade papers that plans to develop reboots for Young Guns, Major League and Ace Ventura are well underway at the rebranded Morgan Creek company, Morgan Creek Entertainment Group. According to Deadline, the company is making a big push across television, features and digital, and is keen to revive brands from their extensive back-catalogue, the aforementioned all fall within. The trade blog also mentions that there are also discussions with a showrunner for a Dead Ringers series reboot.

Deadline reports that McEg president David Robinson said that the Ace Ventura project will be “a mainstream theatrical production relaunch,” and very much not to a straight remake but a new film in the spirit of the original, “Because it’s episodic in nature, about a pet detective, it also lends itself to a traditional single-camera series franchise.” So, to TV it goes then?

We Likely Won’t See Zod Or Lex Luthor In Supergirl Season 3

So far, Supergirl has done a fine job when it comes to adapting a wide array of villains from comics to screen, sometimes feeling like a live action answer to Superman: The Animated Series. And while some baddies to exist within this universe are seemingly being introduced for the first time (Bizarro, Parasite, Metallo and Mr. Mxyzptlk immediately come to mind), there are some major players who have obviously been left to Kara’s Boy Scout of a cousin.

One such example is that of Zod, whom we saw appear in the season 2 finale as a hallucination of Clark’s. As it turns out, this was more so a nod to all this version of the Man of Steel has gone through, and it sounds like we shouldn’t expect Mark Gibbon to reprise the role anytime soon.

Here’s what Andrew Kreisberg had to say on that front, according

Composer Benjamin Wallfisch Talks Composing Scores For Hidden Figures, A Cure For Wellness And Bitter Harvest

Musician Benjamin Wallfisch is redefining the way audiences hear the sounds and feelings of movie music.

His recent scores are Desert Dancer, Hidden Figures, A Cure For Wellness, Lights Out as well as upcoming films Annabelle 2 and Bitter Harvest, so understandably it’s been a busy time over the past few years for the British film composer.

Recently Wallfisch spoke about the elements of composing and the opportunity to tell stories through his music.

Coming from a family of musicians, and classically trained at the Royal Academy of Music, Wallfisch says it was a happy accident that he discovered the sounds that have been instrumental when composing scores. “I’d spend hours examining this fascinating sound and would experiment with it, while exploring other avenues as I was learning the craft and creating electronic sounds.” What sustained him through his years of schooling and training was his love of storytelling.

X-Men: Michael Jackson wanted to play Professor X

Joseph Baxter Mar 3, 2017

The original X-Men movie had some potentially very different casting, as one of its writers reveals...

With Logan out in cinemas now, showcasing what will apparently be Hugh Jackman’s final outing in his 17-year cinematic run as Wolverine, some are understandably nostalgic about the legendary tenure. In a recent interview, screenwriter David Hayter – a key component of Fox's early X-Men movie franchise – discusses some casting prospects that the original production considered in director Bryan Singer’s genre-defining 2000 original film.

See related Power Rangers, boob armour, and impractical costumes

Speaking with THR, Hayter looks back on the days of the X-Men film's gestation.

Hayter, a name video game connoisseurs will recognise as the perennial voice of Solid Snake in the Metal Gear series, wrote the screenplay to 2000’s X-Men, based on a story collaboration with Singer and Tom DeSanto, later tackling sequel X2: X-Men United and Zack Snyder’s Watchmen.
