DVD reviews: Fast and Furious 8; Churchill; A Man Called Ove; and more

15 October 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The fast-car franchise takes more corners than chances, while Brian Cox’s Winston is already overshadowed by Gary Oldman

You’d think, after 16 years, that the fast-cars-and-vast-biceps appeal of the Fast and Furious franchise would be sufficiently established to allow a few risks with the branding. But the UK distributors of its latest instalment are taking no chances. What was released Stateside as The Fate (or the F8?) of the Furious was served to us simply as Fast and Furious 8 (Universal, 12). That’s a shame, because the vague pun in the American title of this typically souped-up monster truck of a film is easily the smartest thing about it.

Other than that, it’s loudly banging business as usual for a series that has essentially become 007 with tank tops in place of tuxes. Give or take some inconsequential side-switching within the film’s comfortably established “family”, the franchise’s streak »

October Horrors 2017 Day 6 – The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

6 October 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Silence of the Lambs, 1991.

Directed by Jonathan Demme.

Starring Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Scott Glenn, and Ted Levine.

Synopsis:

A serial killer dubbed “Buffalo Bill” is kidnapping and murdering women, with the authorities struggling to apprehend him. To help the hunt for the elusive killer, young FBI recruit Clarice Starling seeks the help of cannibalistic murderer and gifted psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter to help build a psychological profile of “Buffalo Bill” in the hope that it will lead to his capture.

In last year’s edition of October Horrors, I spotlighted Michael Mann’s brilliant, but underrated 1986 horror thriller Manhunter, the first film to feature the character of the cannibalistic serial killer and psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, played in that film by Brian Cox.

I still maintain that Manhunter is the best of all the films to feature Hannibal Lecter and advise everyone to watch it if you haven’t already. »

Based on a True Story: Why So Many Biopics Create Oscar Buzz But Become Box-Office Flops

5 October 2017 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fall is the season of Real-People movies — the biopics that often fuel Oscar hopes. Recent weeks brought “The Battle of the Sexes,” “Stronger,” and “Victoria & Abdul” and there’s more than a dozen to come, including “Marshall,” “The Post,” “Darkest Hour,” and “The Current War.” There’s good reason to believe that a biopic might produce awards. In the last five years, 28 of the 100 Oscar acting nominees played real-life characters, as did four of the 20 winners. But when it comes to the box office, the odds aren’t as kind.

Read More:With ‘Dunkirk’ and ‘Darkest Hour’ Showing Strong, Will Churchill-Heavy Britpics Storm the Oscars?

Since 2012, there have been about 100 biopics including hits like “The King’s Speech,” “The Social Network,” and “Julie and Julia.” But while recent years featured real-life characters and stories in some of the biggest non-franchise hits, the format may have reached a saturation point.

Churchill

30 September 2017 7:09 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The scope of this slice of wartime history is so small, it’s almost the movie equivalent of a one-man show. There are perhaps only a dozen speaking roles. Brian Cox is impressive as The Man Who Saved England in its Darkest Hour, but the drama reduces both the man and the historical crisis to trivial status, as little more than a personal emotional crisis: “Winston, the Haunted Imperialist.”

Churchill

Blu-ray

Cohen Media Group

2017 / Color / 2:39 widescreen / 105 min. / Street Date October 3, 2017 / 30.99

Starring: Brian Cox, Miranda Richardson, John Slattery, Ella Purnell, Julian Wadham, Richard Durden, James Purefoy.

No, it isn’t Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill … that’s another movie, Darkest Hour. This is the Brian Cox Churchill movie.

Gary Oldman Commands as Churchill in Second 'Darkest Hour' Trailer

28 September 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You have the full weight of the world on your shoulders." Focus Features has debuted the second trailer for Joe Wright's Darkest Hour, the second film this year about Winston Churchill (the other one is called Churchill starring Brian Cox). This film already played at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals to some rave reviews, especially for the lead performance by Gary Oldman under heavy prosthetic as Winston Churchill. The focus in this film is on Churchill's first few days as Prime Minister, deciding whether or not to agree to a peace treaty with Nazi Germany or fight back and rally the troops waiting in Dunkirk. The cast includes Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn, Stephen Dillane, Kristin Scott Thomas, Charley Palmer Rothwell, Ronald Pickup, Nicholas Jones, Hannah Steele, and Jeremy Child. This is a slick trailer that ratchets up the intensity and shows how powerful Oldman is as Churchill. »

Doctor Foster review – the gleefully mad melodrama is back

5 September 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Suranne Jones as a magnificently galvanised Gemma returns to wreak more havoc in BBC1’s joyous revenge drama. Plus, Brian Cox dashes round The 21st-Century Race for Space

The joy of the second series of Doctor Foster (BBC1) is that we now know it is not aiming for gritty drama and failing, but aiming for histrionic melodrama and succeeding beyond its wildest expectations (the first quintet took in affairs, suicide, lies, deceit, pregnancy, abortion, business corruption, bankruptcy, the smashing of ornaments and Hippocratic oaths into several million pieces, public denunciation and fake child-murder). We can now run gleefully towards the waves of madness – already rushing furiously over the shores of sanity by the end of this opener – dive in and let the waters take us wherever the riptides lead.

An hour of the five in and I’ve already had so much fun I can barely type. The new series »

Telluride Film Review: ‘Darkest Hour’

2 September 2017 2:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With all due respect to Christopher Nolan, no filmmaker has captured the evacuation of Dunkirk better than Joe Wright, who evoked the sheer scale of England’s finest hour via a five-minute tracking shot in “Atonement.” Now, with “Darkest Hour,” Wright returns to show the other side of the operation. Set during the crucial first days of Winston Churchill’s term as prime minster, this talky, yet stunningly cinematic history lesson balances the great orator’s public triumphs with more vulnerable private moments of self-doubt, elevating the inner workings of British government into a compelling piece of populist entertainment.

Whereas Nolan’s “Dunkirk” so thrillingly illustrated the military rescue at Dunkirk, all but banishing Churchill to a newspaper article read aloud at the end of the film, “Darkest Hour” spends nearly every scene at the prime minister’s side — except for the first couple, during which Churchill is dramatically absent, represented »

‘Darkest Hour’: Gary Oldman Is Simply A Force Of Nature As Winston Churchill [Telluride Review]

2 September 2017 2:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Telluride – A little less than three weeks from the publication of this review John Lithgow is expected to win an Emmy for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the Netflix series “The Crown.” Earlier this year Brian Cox earned positive notices for his own interpretation of the legendary British Prime Minister in the appropriately titled “Churchill.” In fact, Churchill appears in some form or another a few times a year and talents such as Brendan Gleeson, Albert Finney, Bob Hoskins, John Houseman and Richard Burton have tried to capture the once in a lifetime charisma of this historical figure on the big or small screen.

Telluride: Gary Oldman Arrives as Instant Best Actor Frontrunner in ‘Darkest Hour’

2 September 2017 12:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For actor Gary Oldman, an Oscar nomination was elusive for many years. An Oscar win, however, could be around the corner.

The chameleonic star had dazzled for decades in an endless string of films — “Sid and Nancy,” “State of Grace,” “True Romance,” “Leon: The Professional,” “The Contender,” “Hannibal,” etc. — until 2011, when his work was finally recognized by the Motion Picture Academy. It wasn’t one of his trademark Baroque performances that got the call, but rather, his icy cool portrait of a British intelligence operative in Tomas Alfredson’s “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.” The man has nothing if not range, and that range now extends to Sir Winston Churchill, about as larger-than-life as it gets.

In Joe Wright’s World War II drama “Darkest Hour,” which unspooled at the Telluride Film Festival Friday, Oldman’s showcase might be his finest hour. He digs into the towering role with uncanny resolve, fearless under gobs of makeup, »

‘Super Troopers 2’ Red-Band Trailer Unleashed

28 August 2017 4:43 PM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Super Troopers 2‘ has unleahed it’s first official red band trailer. Released in 2001, the original ‘Super Troopers‘ quickly became a cult hit on dvd. The guys behind Broken Lizard have pretty much always wanted to make a sequel to the film, but could never find the funding to make it happen. Then, in 2015, it was announced that the comedy troupe had received studio permission to make the movie, but that production funds would have to find production funding themselves. The group then turned to indiegogo, where they successfully met their $2 million funding goal in 26 hours, and raised a total of $4.4 million to make the movie.

The sequel follows our lovable band of heroes as they deal with a “border dispute” that somehow involves a group of Canadian mounties. While the trailer itself serves mainly as an announcement, we do know that Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, »

Check Out This Super Troopers 2 Teaser Trailer Right Meow!

28 August 2017 2:30 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Fans of Broken Lizard can now mark their calendars as the comedy troupe’s next big screen adventure, Super Troopers 2, is set to be released April 20, 2018. The guys haven’t been seen together in a film since 2009’s The Slammin’ Salmon, in which the usual crew played waiters and chefs.  The Original Super Troopers was released 15 years ago and became a cult classic with the ridiculous antics of some not so law-abiding law enforcement officers.

A minute-long teaser for Super Troopers 2 was released today, and from the looks of it, fans are in store for more of what made the first movie great. We see what looks to be some more shenanigans from the guys, as Rabbit, the rookie from the first film who was endlessly hazed, is tied down to a table and the rest of the guys seem to be dead set on helping him out with some manscaping. »

First Teaser for ‘Super Troopers 2’ Finds Broken Lizard Jumping Back into Uniform

28 August 2017 2:08 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It’s been 16 years since Super Troopers underperformed at the box office only to blossom into a bonafide cult classic, and now comedy troupe Broken Lizard are back with Super Troopers 2. The troupe have produced several other films since Super Troopers, including Club Dread and Beer League, but none entered the zeitgeist the way Troopers did.

Of course, a long delayed sequel to a well-loved comedy doesn’t always turn out for the best. Remember Dumb and Dumber To? If you do, I’m sorry. Hopefully Super Troopers 2 will manage to recapture the stoner comedy magic that endeared the first film to so many.

Broken Lizard’s Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske all return, along with Brian Cox, and new members to the cast include Lynda Carter and Rob Lowe. Super Troopers 2 opens 4/20/2018, because of course it does. You can watch »

Shave the Date With The First Teaser for Super Troopers 2

28 August 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The wait is finally over!  We have our first look at the sequel to the cult classic Super Troopers!  Check out the hilarious teaser below!

I like many of you am a fan of the original Super Troopers. Debuting in February of 2002 to the mass market by the creative minds at Broken Lizard it has gained a following as a widely-loved cult classic that still holds up today.  Last week, we shared with you the predictable, yet awesome release date for the sequel.  Today, we got a teaser that shows our favorite patrol units hitting the streets one more time.

I’m in, that’s all I can say. Considering 16 years has passed between, hang on a second, 16 years! That can’t be right. Oh, wait it is I’m just old. But the comedy seems to have that same feel that I loved from the original. Returning to the »

See 'Super Troopers' Return in First Teaser for Sequel

28 August 2017 10:19 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Three years after Broken Lizard crowdfunded a sequel for their beloved 2001 cult comedy Super Troopers, the comedy troupe have unveiled the first look at Super Troopers 2, due out in 2018.

Despite the 17 years since the original, the troopers haven't grown out of their sophomoric humor. The teaser opens with the threat of a "balls-shaving" sequence before they're mercifully called into action by their Captain (actor Brian Cox, reprising his role from the 2001 comedy).

The trailer also riffs on Super Troopers' hilarious "Cat Game" scene, with Jim Gaffigan once again »
