Dad’s Army review – the wit goes awol

7 February 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Canny casting and fine performances are undermined by a script that falls short of Croft and Perry’s vintage TV sitcom

Neither as pleasurable as it should have been nor as painful as it could have been, this big-screen reboot of the much-loved TV sitcom takes a particularly well-chosen cast and somehow manages to give them both too much and too little to do, losing the interpersonal dynamics of the small-screen series in the process.

The “action” is set in the run-up to the Normandy landings, with Walmington-on-Sea infiltrated by a Nazi spy and Catherine Zeta-Jones setting the Home Guard’s hearts and minds aflutter in a nod to the classic “Mum’s Army” episode from 1970. Will the fighting tigers (as they were once set to be called) identify the traitor in time to avert disaster?

Steven Soderbergh working on new movie project with Channing Tatum

4 February 2016 3:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well it looks like Steven Soderbergh might be coming out of his theatrical retirement to work on a new movie project with Channing Tatum, which will revolve around a heist during a Nascar-style race. According to a source close to THR, the new movie will be “Ocean’s Eleven but with hillbillies”.

Not much else is known as of yet however Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) has also been linked, although only Tatum has been confirmed to be involved right now.

Soderbergh’s last feature film project was Side Effects, released in 2013 and starring Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Since then he’s been working in television and his HBO film Behind the Candelabra – starring Michael Douglas as Liberace – won two Golden Globes.

Soderbergh confirmed shortly before the release of Side Effects that he would be retiring from filmmaking indefinitely citing Hollywood’s horrible treatment towards »

Dad's Army review

twitter

google+

The new take on Dad's Army gives a standout role to Toby Jones. Here's our review of the new comedy.

Don't panic! Oliver Parker's big screen version of classic British sitcom Dad's Army (48 years old this year) is remarkably faithful to Jimmy Perry and David Croft's much-loved original and by no means the travesty that some had feared. It benefits chiefly from a note-perfect cast and a warm glow of reverential nostalgia that pervades the entire project, but it's slightly let down by a meandering script and the playing-it-safe comedy moments tend to generate amused smiles rather than out-and-out laughter.

Set in 1944, in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, the film stars Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, the leader of an elderly platoon of the Home Guard that comprises Oxford-educated Sergeant Wilson (Bill Nighy), doddery Private Godfrey (Michael Gambon), excitable Lance Corporal Jones (Tom Courtenay »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

At 46 years old, Catherine Zeta-Jones hasn't aged a day. So, obviously, everyone wants to know the secret behind her young-looking complexion, and the actress has revealed it. Fortunately, anyone can do it, as it involves zero expensive facials, treatments or any other methods employed by Hollywood's elite. In a online chat with Mumsnet, Zeta-Jones revealed the secret to her skin's success. "I'm finding, just from traveling from New York and being in heated hotel rooms, my skin feels like a Walker's crisp at the moment, but I've been using some argan oil just to saturate my skin at night, so it has some nourishment as I sleep, to start the day a little bit more hydrated," she »

Film Review: ‘Dad’s Army’

27 January 2016 10:51 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A patchy but well-meaning WWII-set British laffer, “Dad’s Army” reimagines a nearly 50-year-old BBC sitcom for 2016 theaters with mixed results. Amiable to a fault, with gags both broad and gentle, Oliver Parker’s pic prompts sporadic chuckles rather than guffaws; its main attraction is a spirited turn by Toby Jones as the leader of an elderly platoon ready to act as Blighty’s last line of defense should the Nazis invade. Flat action sequences hardly make the case that this new cinematic interpretation was altogether necessary, though it’s no more superfluous than Columbia’s largely forgotten 1971 outing involving the original sitcom cast. Nostalgia factor notwithstanding, auds seem unlikely to enlist in droves.

When showrunners Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s original BBC sitcom “Dad’s Army” debuted in 1968, the response from elements of the contemporary press was: “Too soon?” The question a 21st-century version invites is: “Too late? »
