Capsule Movie Reviews (Apr. 2): 'Alan Partridge' and five more

2 April 2014 1:16 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

New Release

Alan Partridge

R, 1 Hr., 30 Mins.

Steve Coogan’s hilariously acidic creation, the buffoonish radio host Alan Partridge, is finally back. And like so many reunions, this one starts off all smiles and quickly grows tiresome. Coogan’s alter ego is as deliciously petty as ever. But the plot swirling around him — a fired co-worker (Colm Meaney) takes the station hostage — is unimaginative and endless. (Also available on iTunes and VOD) B- —Chris Nashawaty

Anita

Not Rated, 1 Hr., 17 Mins.

Price: DVD $30.99, Blu-ray/DVD Combo $40.99

George Clooney (The Descendants) directed, co-wrote and stars in The Monuments Men, which tells a true story from World War II.

Based on the book by Robert M. Edsel, the drama movie follows the exploits of an aging U.S. platoon who are assigned to track down, steal and return priceless pieces of art that were stolen by Nazis.

Matt Damon (Elysium), Bill Murray (Get Low), Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine), John Goodman (TV’s Treme), Hugh Bonneville (Agatha Christie’s Poirot: Murder on the Orient Express) and Bob Balaban (Girl Most Likely) co-star in the war film.

Twin Peaks Characters Drawn In The Style Of The Simpsons by Belgian artist Adrien Noterdaem.

Futures & Pasts: Wild Things by Nick Pinkerton:

“In Pierre Bayard’s 1998 Who Killed Roger Ackroyd?: The Mystery Behind the Agatha Christie Mystery, a closer-than-close reading of Agatha Christie’s 1926 The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, psychoanalyst and literature professor Bayard expends considerable space on the subject of the book’s narrative ellipses, its lies by omission. These are the spaces in which Christie’s narrator, Dr. James Sheppard, who is eventually unmasked as the book’s murderer, can conceal his guilt. They are also, for Bayard, indicators of a far larger world which exists beyond the parsimonious few details that Christie, by way of Sheppard and investigator Hercule Poirot, have chosen to share with the reader.” - Keynote: The multi-level stereotypes of The Cabin In The Woods by Tasha Robinson: - “Stereotypes are a real time-saver. »

‘Sabotage’ Review

28 March 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Sabotage makes the bold attempt of re-imagining Agatha Christie’s seminal murder mystery novel And Then There Were None as a modern crime-thriller about a DEA special forces team that attempts to rip off a cartel, only to find their stolen loot missing and big target on their backs. After clearing departmental scrutiny, John ‘Breacher’ Wharton (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is finally given clearance to let his team of mad dogs out of the kennel; problem is, no sooner are they back on active duty when a mysterious assailant begins picking them off one by one.

As their numbers dwindle, Breacher’s team starts coming apart at the seams – openings for homicide detectives Caroline (Olivia Williams) and Jackson (Harold Perrineau) to exploit, as they attempt to work out what this fringe team ...

"Doctor Who" Scribe Talks Future Episodes

28 March 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Having penned episodes for the last three Doctors already, "Sherlock" co-creator Mark Gatiss is returning to pen two episodes for Peter Capaldi's version in the upcoming season of "Doctor Who".

With the hunt for the missing Gallifrey and the Time Lords being a likely running storyline for Capaldi's Doctor, Gatiss was asked in a recent BBC Worldwide event in Brazil about the possibility of penning a Time Lord-oriented story. It's an idea he's not a fan of:

"Every time you go back to Gallifrey, it starts to make the Time Lords a bit too domesticated. I know that's why Russell T. Davies came up with the whole idea of the Doctor being the last one because eventually if you see them so often they become a bit like a bunch of MPs, whereas if you talk about them as this amazing, powerful force, they're much more exciting."

Sabotage

28 March 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Sabotage

Directed by: David Ayer

Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello

Running Time: 1 hr 49 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: March 28, 2014

Plot: After they rob a drug cartel, members of a DEA task force (led by Schwarzenegger) begin to drop one-by-one.

Who’S It For? Schwarzenegger geeks, or anyone who expects more than just spectacle from the former governor.

Overall

In Sabotage, Arnold Schwarzengger continues to expand his 2.0 image as he is reincarnated in the face of his first-name basis nostalgia. Aligning himself with director David Ayer’s embrace of real-life gruesomeness, where no image of blood or guts is spared in the recognizing of occupational hazard brutality, Schwarzengger expresses the corrosive qualities of testosterone, and the destructive paths that can come from living a life that feeds on primal elements. His character, Breacher, leads a team of DEA agents who treat testosterone like a steroid, »

'Sabotage' Review: 10 Things to Know About the New Arnold Schwarzenegger Movie

27 March 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After a questionable political career as the governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger is very much an actor again. Even Arnold's age can only be identified through the use of high-powered electron microscopes, the beefy thespian has been been making a ton of movies recently -- from the Sylvester Stallone team-up movie "Escape Plan" (woof) to the never-ending "Expendables" movies (the third is due out in August). The latest is "Sabotage," a murder mystery action movie set in the world of the DEA.

The movie has a pretty loaded roster of bad-asses in the form of supporting actors Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Harold Perrineau, Martin Donovan, Max Martini and Josh Holloway, all of whom pack plenty of firepower (if you know what I mean) with Mireille Enos and Olivia Williams ensuring that it's not a total sausage fest. There are many, many cases of ammunition spent in this movie. »

Veronica Mars, the movie: 'Fans gave the money, there was all this pressure'

13 March 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The badass teen private detective who made her name on Us TV is making a triumphant return in a Kickstarter-funded movie. So how did director Rob Thomas cope with the fans' (Aka the Marshmallows) expectations?

Once, Rob Thomas was a high-school teacher. One of his jobs was to oversee the yearbook committee, mostly teenage girls. The conversations he overheard – he had soon become mere wallpaper to his pupils – gave him new insight into the profound self-consciousness of adolescents. Some years later, he had the idea for a TV show about a female badass who, unlike Buffy or Alias's Sydney Bristow, didn't have awesome martial arts skills. His heroine may have been cleverer than anyone else in the room, but, more important, she didn't care what anyone else thought of her. "And for teenagers," says Thomas, "that is the best superpower."

Rob Thomas interview: Veronica Mars, directing, Statham

13 March 2014 4:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Interview Simon Brew 14 Mar 2014 - 06:31

The creator of Veronica Mars takes us through the new movie, directing, Jason Statham and Richard Linklater...

This Friday, a quest that began over five years ago concludes, as Veronica Mars escapes TV cancellation hell and arrives in her own film. With Kristen Bell reprising the role, the film has come about as a result of a high profile Kickstarter campaign, and also thanks to the sheer persistence of showrunner Rob Thomas.

That'd be the same Rob Thomas too who was kind enough to spare us 20 minute for a natter on the phone. Which began with a grovel on our part...

I should start with an apology. One of the perils of Kickstarter campaigns is those irritating people who pledge money, and then whose credit card bounces at the point of payment. Er, that might have happened to me....

'The Grand Budapest Hotel' (2013) Movie Review

10 March 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"Well how's that supposed to make me feelc" asks Ralph Fiennes hilariously, playing Gustave H, the concierge of the titular Grand Budapest Hotel in the fictional Eastern European country Zubrowska. He asks the question after being berated by the son (Adriend Brody) of the late Madame D. (Tilda Swinton) whose passing may have just landed Gustave one of the family's prized paintings, "Boy with Apple". But the painting is only a jumping off point for The Grand Budapest Hotel, a story told in flashback, taking place between the two wars, as Gustave finds himself in prison, out of prison and knee deep in a murder mystery we'd expect from the likes of Agatha Christie, only this time told through the kaleidoscope lens of writer/director Wes Anderson. The film, in fact, is told through two flashbacks, the first of which begins with a writer played by Jude Law in his »
