Fortitude, Ep. 1.10: “Episode Ten” says goodbye to a major character

1 hour ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Stanley Tucci

Fortitude, Season One, “Episode Ten”

Written by Tom Butterworth and Chris Hurford

Directed by Nick Hurran

Airs Thursdays at 10 pm (Et) on Pivot

With the town of Fortitude continuing to descend into chaos, a glimmer of hope was provided by the scientists last week as they seemed to have found a chemical that points to a reason behind the violent behaviour exhibited by Shirley. This week’s episode delves further into the research behind what’s causing the aberrant behaviour, while also exploring what happened to Ronnie and how Frank continues to cope, and how the interaction between Eugene Morton and Henry goes. The result is another compelling episode, despite a couple of weak points, as things continue to build to a head in the town.

Frank Sutter’s downward spiral continues to be fascinating to watch. His torture of Markus over the past two episodes showed the »

Fortitude Episode 1.9 Review [Contains Spoilers]

6 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Nick Hurran

Writers: Tom Butterworth, Chris Hurford

Starring: Richard Dormer, Stanley Tucci, Sofie Grabol, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine, Nicholas Pinnock

**Contains Spoilers** 

Review: What’s so gripping about Fortitude is how easily it can change pace and yet we’re still completely captivated. It’s hard for anything to do that, let along a television series, but the fact that Fortitude is still asking questions, bringing us compelling drama and doing it with a dark, enjoyable humour is terrific.

With Henry sat out in the cold, seemingly waiting to die or end his days in peaceful reflection, Dci Morton is out looking for him but hasn’t told anyone where he’s gone. You see, usually, someone of his stature wouldn’t need to but this is Fortitude and you already feel that he may have accidentally cut himself off without thinking it through. As he drives out into the deep, »

Wild Card movie review: hardboiled rotten egg

23 March 2015 5:47 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Piles of noirish exposition get the better of Jason Statham in this unpleasantly retrograde crime drama. What happened in Vegas should have stayed there. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): Simon West must be stopped

I have not read the source material

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

I understand why Jason Statham might want to expand his onscreen horizons. I don’t think he has it in him, but I get it. What I don’t get is: Why choose, for such a creative endeavor, this regressive throwback, which would have been unpleasantly backward-looking in the mid 1980s, when William Goldman published the novel it’s based on? (It was first adapted by Goldman himself for film in 1986, starring Burt Reynolds and titled Heat, and it wasn’t met with applause then, either.) Honestly, when I saw that Goldman was credited with the script here, »

Wild Card review: Jason Statham remakes a flop... but does it work?

20 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Simon West; Screenwriter: William Goldman; Starring: Jason Statham, Milo Ventimiglia, Stanley Tucci; Running time: 92 mins; Certificate: 15

Why does Hollywood only tend to remake films that were perfectly good in the first place? Surely it makes sense to take a rough diamond and give it a good polish? Wild Card shows you should be careful for what you wish for. This remake of 1986 Burt Reynolds flop Heat, adapted by legendary screenwriter William Goldman from his own novel, is a stale and misguided mess.

Jason Statham heads ever closer to complete self-parody with his role as Nick Wild, a tough guy who lives off protection jobs in Las Vegas while struggling with a gambling addiction. He soon becomes embroiled in a vicious spat with Milo Ventimiglia's contrived villain Danny DeMarco, who possesses the same comedy goatee and menace as Albert Square icon Beppe Di Marco.

Fortitude Episode 1.8 Review [Contains Spoilers]

19 March 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Hettie Macdonald

Writers: Tom Butterworth, Chris Hurford

Starring: Richard Dormer, Stanley Tucci, Sofie Grabol, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine, Nicholas Pinnock

**Contains Spoilers** 

Review: So, Liam’s woken up. He looks like a normal kid, right? Jules is surely next to die, right? Ronnie Isn’T Dead. Whaaat.

As we concluded on episode 8, we’re left with a further cliffhanger after it has been revealed in the opening moments that Ronnie was brutally attacked and left in a random cupboard, that may or may not be in the family home, but there’s one thing we know and that’s something is living in there still but whether it’s human or this super-virus, we’ll have to wait and find out.

This one was a truly huge episode with so much happening after a few weeks of just teasers and now we’re getting colossal outcomes.

Wild Card Review

19 March 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Simon West

CastJason Statham, Milo Ventimiglia, Stanley Tucci, Michael Angarano, Sofia Vergara, Hope Davis, Anne Heche

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 92 minutes

Synopsis: Nick Wild (Statham) runs a private security business in Las Vegas, and he has a gambling problem. After crossing paths with a woman from his past he finds himself caught up with one of the local gangsters Danny DeMarco (Ventimiglia), and has one night to make it out of Vegas. 

Those who have seen the trailer will be expecting Wild Card to be yet another Jason Statham action film, full of explosive fight sequences and witty put-downs. Sadly all of the expected action is only what is glimpsed during the trailer, with the film more of a drama than all-out action movie.

That in itself wouldn’t be too bad were it not for the film’s distinct lack of direction. The opening sequence, which sees »

Fire Burns Forever In First Teaser And Poster For The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

18 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lionsgate isn’t taking any chances when it comes to the final part of Katniss Everdeen’s saga. While The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is still several months away from release, the studio is rolling out stage one of its marketing campaign. In the spirit of the first three movies, a one-sheet poster outlining the triumphant Mockingjay has arrived online, along with a cheeky teaser trailer.

Turning to this brand new poster, the final stage of Katniss’ journey to bring down The Capitol and its devious leader President Snow is summed up by the tagline “The Fire Will Burn Forever.” Running along the central image of the burning Mockingjay pin, finally breaking free, it ties in to the message of Part 1: “If we burn, you burn with us.”

Similarly, the teaser trailer focuses its efforts on the same motif, albeit while offering little new material. While we can »

The Mockingjay breaks free in first poster for The Hunger Games' finale

18 March 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jennifer Lawrence and her American Hustle director David O. Russell have reunited for this December’s Joy, a biopic that may be the vehicle for Lawrence to repeat her Silver Linings Playbook Oscar win.

But before she starts pushing around Joy’s Miracle Mop – yes, it’s fully a biopic about the Miracle Mop inventor – Lawrence has to return to the role that made her famous, The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen, in this November’sThe Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.

In the poster for the sequel, Katniss’ struggle for independence is depicted with the use of her iconic “mockingjay” pin, where the her avatar breaks free of its cage, so to speak, just in time for The Hunger Games’ finale.

Basically, the Capitol is in for a world of hurt.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 2 Motion Poster Online

18 March 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The Hunger Games franchise has a history of motion posters – not surprising given the flaming bird logo that has represented the films for the past few years. With the final chapter, Mockingjay – Part 2 on its way, there’s a film series wrap-up underscoring the new image, which sees the Mockingjay breaking free of his circular barrier like a golden, feathery Freddie Mercury.Following on from the first Mockingjay, the second part of the story finds Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and the rebels making the final push against Donald Sutherland's scheming President Snow and the Capitol, with lives on the line and sacrifices to be made. The new movie should boost the action quotient as the bigger beats are to be found lurking towards the end of Suzanne Collins’ third tome. With Francis Lawrence again directing and Lawrence joined on screen by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks, »

Thn Interview: Director Simon West For ‘Wild Card’

16 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The man who brought us Tomb Raider, Con Air and The Expendables 2 is this week bringing us the latest Jason Statham vehicle, Wild Card. The film is a modern retelling of the 1986 Burt Reynolds film Heat which in turn is based on a novel by William Goldman. Nick Wild, played by Jason Statham, runs a personal security agency in Las Vegas. He is desperate to escape Vegas’ clutches but his gambling addiction is making that hard to do. After helping out a female friend he finds himself on the wrong side of the local mob and has to leave, or die trying.

The production sees Statham and West re-team for the third time, having previously worked together on both The Mechanic and The Expendables 2. Although known for his big Hollywood action flicks, West is actually British and started out directing commercials and worked on several high profile BBC shows including Bleak House. »

Fortitude Episode 1.7 Review [Contains Spoilers]

Director: Hettie Macdonald

Writers: Ben Richards

Starring: Richard Dormer, Stanley Tucci, Sofie Grabol, Michael Gambon, Christopher Eccleston, Jessica Raine, Nicholas Pinnock

**Contains Spoilers** 

Review: The aftermath of Shirley cutting her Mum open is a firm affair with not so many twists but thankfully, and I say this with the greatest respect, someone has in all probability put Ronnie out of his insanity misery and although this doesn’t kick us off with tonight’s look back, it certainly is a response to my ‘What’s the point of his character?’ question from last week.

So, to follow up that – frankly – horrific finale from last week as we now join Shirley, walking through the snow, all blood soaked after cutting open her Mother. As episode 7 progresses, we’ll learn that she’s was just popping down to the supermarket to pick up some after-death snacks and it’s very likely that our original, »

Stars: Jason Statham, Michael Angarano, Dominik García-Lorido, Milo Ventimiglia, Stanley Tucci, Max Casella, Jason Alexander, Sofía Vergara, Anne Heche, Matthew Willig | Written by William Goldman | Directed by Simon West

Nick Wild (Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes…and this time, it’s all or nothing.

How the mighty have fallen… You’d never guess watching Wild Card that it came from the pen of Academy Award-winning writer William Goldman. Yes, the highly-regarded novelist-turned-screenwriter who was responsible for the screenplays for films such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, »
