'The Judge' (2014) Movie Review

10 October 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Without the performances of Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall, The Judge would probably end up being a film I would have dismissed outright. Director David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers, The Change-Up) is best known for his comedies, but here he's directing a two hour and twenty minute, Indiana-set, father-son melodrama, working with a script from Nick Schenk (Gran Torino) and Bill Dubuque that was in serious need of trimming from the start. Nevermind the fact the film is largely generic, it's just too long, overstuffed, often repeating scenes and unnecessarily wasting time to add another layer, merely for the sake of drama rather than storytelling. To be fair, Dobkin isn't completely out of his element, he just seems somewhat unsure of himself. The Judge is intensely formulaic, hitting beats at just the "right" time, be they comedic or dramatic, you know something meant for a laugh or a tear is »

'The Judge' Dp Janusz Kaminski Finds Beauty in a Bygone America

10 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While Steven Spielberg searched for his next movie, flirting with "American Sniper" before giving way to Clint Eastwood, famed cinematographer Janusz Kaminski was vigorously pursued by David Dobkin to shoot "The Judge." The two-time Oscar-winner ("Saving Private Ryan," "Schindler's List") was impressed with Dobkin's passion and ambition for this film about father-son estrangement. It was a far cry from Dobkin's earlier "The Change-Up" and "Wedding Crashers," and the powerful odd couple pairing of the two Roberts (Downey Jr. and Duvall) proved too irresistible for Kaminski to turn down. "I like David's movies, but he made sure this movie had autobiographical elements from his life [humbled by taking care of his estranged mother], which is always very uplifting to me," Kaminski explained by phone from New York, where he's currently shooting Spielberg's "St. James Place," the true-life '60s Cold »

Indiana Jones 5 News: Janusz Kaminski Name Dropped as Film’s Cinematographer

2 October 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Will Harrison Ford be dusting off the old fedora in the near future? A fresh piece of Indiana Jones 5 news suggests that the wheel might be turning within Lucasfilm and Disney to get the project rolling, possibly as early as next year.

Variety has published a rather innocuous article to announce an online course in filmmaking from three of the top cinematographers working in Hollywood today. The article was penned by Peter Caranicas, deputy editor at the Hollywood trade magazine, so misinformation is not something to be expected within the article's content.

About midway through the article, Caranicas recaps some of the projects Janusz Kaminski worked as a cinematographer on. Then he caps the paragraph with the following line, "His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie."

Wait, what? If we're to believe that Kaminski is already attached to Indiana Jones 5 and it is slotted in as his next project, »

Steven Spielberg's Cinematographer Says Indiana Jones 5 is His Next Film

2 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski works on about one film per year and has collaborated with Steven Spielberg on over a dozen films, including "Schindler's List," "War of the Worlds," "Munich," "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and "Lincoln." He recently completed work on Robert Downey Jr's "The Judge" and is already planning something for 2015. In an interview with Variety, he revealed that his next movie will be a re-teaming with Spielberg for "Indiana Jones 5." We've heard of lots of hints that "Indiana Jones 5" is moving forward, but mostly from crew members and leaked schedules. But now that Kaminski has confirmed the project, it's only a matter of time before filming begins. »

Janusz Kaminski's next film: Indiana Jones 5?

1 October 2014 10:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski's next film is apparently going to be Indiana Jones 5. That's what it says here...

Yep, we know the rule too. If you read a news story and it has a question mark in it, then chances are it's not something that's likely to happen. But bear with us on this.

At some point in the future, another Indiana Jones film will happen. It seems fairly certain, given that Disney paid extra to pay the theatrical rights to the series from Paramount, and there are occasional murmurings too that a new movie is on the horizon. Harrison Ford for one has always refused to rule out one last hurrah.

Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, a long-time Steven Spielberg collaborator, is part of a new online course that Variety has put together for aspiring filmmakers. As such, he'll be one of the people presenting a bunch of online instructional videos. »

Indiana Jones 5 Is Happening, Here's The Latest

1 October 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Indiana Jones 5 is apparently finally going to happen, after several years of false starts, bogus rumors and alleged new casting announcements. And it looks like it's cinematographer Janusz Kaminski we have to thank for having a part in revealing that production on the fifth installment to the beloved franchise could soon become a reality. During a Variety expose on his career, it was flippantly reveled that Kaminski.s "next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie." While this appears to have been thrown in to the article as almost a last thought, Indiana Jones devotees quickly latched on to the revelation, taking it as indication that the fifth film has finally been announced, and that we can all finally try to move on from the cinematic nightmare that was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. Harsh I know, but fair. It.s been over six »

Updated: So Maybe 'Indiana Jones 5' is Happeningc

1 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over at Slashfilm they noticed something of a throwaway line in a recent article at Variety discussing the new collaborative online project from cinematographers Janusz Kaminski (Lincoln), Phedon Papamichael (Nebraska) and Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight Rises) in which the trio will offer a series of online instructional videos for aspiring filmmakers at Advanced Filmmaking. The line has to do with Kaminski, which goes as follows: Since then, Kaminski has made more than a dozen films with Steven Spielberg, earning two Oscars along the way. His credits include Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly. His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie. Wait, whatc His next projectc Kaminski previously worked on The Judge, which hits theaters on October 10 (my review) and is now working on Spielberg's Untitled Cold War thriller (which is going by St. James Place on set, but that is not »

Indiana Jones 5 Has a Cinematographer

1 October 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like Disney and Lucasfilm are preparing to move forward with a fifth Indiana Jones film. We knew it would eventually happen, and they are getting closer to making it a reality. It seems the studio has already hired a cinematographer to shoot the film, and that cinematographer's name is Janusz Kaminski. He has made several films with director Steven Spielberg.

Variety recently posted an article about an online filmmaking course being offered by cinematographers, and this short little paragraph was thrown in there: 

"Since then, Kaminski has made more than a dozen films with Steven Spielberg, earning two Oscars along the way. His credits include Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly. His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie."

It's really no surprise that Kaminski will be working on Indiana Jones 5, but the fact that it will be his next project is very interesting. »

Is Indiana Jones 5 cinematographer Janusz Kaminski’s next project?

1 October 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The folks over at /Film have discovered an interesting new piece of the Indiana Jones 5 puzzle, that points back to cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, who’s worked with Steven Spielberg on a handful of films including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Schindler’s List, War of the Worlds,  Catch Me If You Can, Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan among others.

Variety first posted an article titled Top Cinematographers Offer Online Course on Filmmaking, that concluded this little nugget of info about Kaminski…

“Since then, Kaminski has made more than a dozen films with Steven Spielberg, earning two Oscars along the way. His credits include Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly. His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie.”

While a paragraph from an article completely unrelated to the news item itself isn’t exactly the most credible of sources, »

Is Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski's Next Project 'Indiana Jones 5'?

1 October 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, here's something that's interesting and a little bit flimsy all at the same time. Ever since Disney picked up the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount Pictures to complete their acquisition of properties from Lucasfilm, there have been rumors of both continuing the adventure with Harrison Ford or maybe rebooting the franchise with someone like Bradley Cooper. Neither option has proven to have any solid development, but there's a curious mention of Indiana Jones 5 in a Variety article (via SlashFilm) that gives a crash course in cinematography from some of the top names in the business, and one was Janusz Kaminski. For those who don't know, Janusz Kaminski is a frequent collaborator of director Steven Spielberg, having been director of photography for many of his films (Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List landed him Oscars for his work). And in the aforementioned article, there's this little excerpt: Since then, »

Top Cinematographers Offer Online Course on Filmmaking

30 September 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Three major cinematographers – Janusz Kaminski (“Lincoln”), Phedon Papamichael (“Nebraska”) and Wally Pfister (“The Dark Knight Rises”) – have teamed to present Advanced Filmmaking, a series of online instructional videos for aspiring filmmakers.

In addition to extensive interviews with the three d.p.’s, the course offers more than 12 hours of chats with their collaborators, including directors Alexander Payne and Wim Wenders.

“We conceived Advanced Filmmaking as a way to communicate lessons that aren’t normally covered in film school,” says Papamichael. “In our interactions with students and young filmmakers around the world, we saw a thirst for information about other topics like successful collaboration, making good career decisions and managing your personal life.”

Course modules vary in length, averaging about a half hour, and can be can be rented for one week via video sharing site Vimeo for $3.95.

Robert Downey Jr. Has Father Issues in New The Judge Trailer

17 September 2014 10:17 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released a new The Judge trailer for director David Dobkin’s upcoming drama, and it goes rather heavy on the sentimentality.  Robert Downey Jr. plays an attorney who returns home for his mother’s funeral only to learn that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a judge who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder.  Reviews out of the film’s Tiff premiere weren’t great and this trailer lays on the schmaltz pretty hard, but Downey Jr. still manages to be engaging.  I was also somewhat surprised to find out that Steven Spielberg’s longtime collaborator Janusz Kaminski was the cinematographer on the pic, marking another rare foray outside of his Spielberg partnership. Watch the new The Judge trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy Strong, Dax ShepardLeighton MeesterKen HowardDavid KrumholtzBalthazar Getty, »

The Judge Review [Tiff 2014]

6 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It is appropriate that Robert Downey Jr. burst back onto the A-list by playing a superhero, as the actor’s cunning wit and dry charisma has single-handedly saved or repaired a variety of average films. Efforts like Two Girls and a Guy, The Soloist, Tropic Thunder and his Iron Man installments needed Downey’s caustic touch to be memorable trips to the cinema. Now, the actor is back in top-tier form, taking the mawkish, Grisham-lite drama The Judge and doing everything he can to infuse the story with sheer entertainment. He avenges a mediocre script and uneven storytelling with not only flair, but also deep sincerity.

In this earnest return to drama for Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin, Downey plays Hank Palmer, a hotshot defense attorney who only books expensive clients – “Innocent people can’t afford me,” he snipes at a prosecutor – but cannot book the time to talk with his grade-school-age daughter. »

Toronto: Deliberating ‘The Judge’ as Awards Contender

5 September 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Judge” features a great lineup of talent, above and below the line, but the main focus (both to mainstream audiences and awards voters) will be on the two Roberts: Downey Jr. and Duvall.

Duvall seems like the safest bet for supporting-actor recognition. Downey could potentially contend as lead actor, though he’s facing strong competition in a category that’s getting jam-packed with the likes of Michael Keaton (“Birdman”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game”) and possibly “Boyhood” newcomer Ellar Coltrane.

The project is proudly old-fashioned: Murder trials were once a staple of Hollywood films; not so much now. But “Judge” is less about a courtroom than about family relationships. But what it’s Really about is performances.

The film, from Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, was opening-night attraction of the Toronto Film Festival Thursday. In his introduction at Roy Thomson Hall, director David Dobkin thanked the WB-Roadshow execs, saying »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Judge’

4 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gavels are slammed, tempers are lost and bowels are evacuated with great force in David Dobkin’s “The Judge,” Some elements ring truer than others in this ambitious blend of dysfunctional-family melodrama and legal procedural, but all of them are just about held together by the ferocious onscreen chemistry between two Roberts (Duvall and Downey Jr.), playing an overbearing father and a black-sheep son who find their already tense relationship literally put on trial. Refreshing as it is to see Downey step out of the Iron Man suit for a spell, the jury’s still out on whether an impressive talent roster can draw enough grown-up eyeballs to this overlong, resolutely old-fashioned male weepie, set for release Oct. 10 by Warner Bros.

For all the creakily elaborate Tennessee Williams-meets-John Grisham machinations cooked up by screenwriters Nick Schenk and Bill Dubuque (working from a story by Dobkin and Schenk), “The Judge »
