Brotherhood review – silly gangster-porn version of kids' TV

25 August 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With its dramatic cliches and terrible acting, Noel Clarke’s ‘hood’ franchise is now utterly exhausted

Ten years ago, writer-star Noel Clarke delivered a blast of energy with Kidulthood, his west London urban crime-drama – it almost invented the genre in the eyes of many. He came back for more with Adulthood two years later. Now with this third film Brotherhood, the franchise is utterly exhausted. It’s a lame collection of cliches, clunkily unconvincing plot transitions, and frankly terrible acting.

The first film had something to say about the infantile nature of crime and the obsession with respect. But now the macho immaturity looks wrong: it’s a silly gangster-porn version of kids’ TV.

Movie Review – Brotherhood (2016)

23 August 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Brotherhood, 2016.

Written and Directed by Noel Clarke.

Starring Noel Clarke, Steven Cree, Olivia Chenery, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Nick Nevern, Adjoa Andoh, Arnold Oceng, Fredi ‘Kruga’ Nwaka and Ashley Thomas.

Synopsis:

The final instalment in Noel Clarke’s West London crime trilogy sees Sam Peel reckon with his past as attacks on his family threaten his future. With Sam’s former violent ways behind him, can he return to that life without risking everything he’s worked toward?

At a screening of Brotherhood in London’s West End, writer/director/star Noel Clarke entered the auditorium to a smattering of applause.

“It’s okay, you don’t have to clap,” he said. “I know half of you are critics who don’t like me anyway.” Clarke continued to introduce the film, half-heartedly advising the audience to “go with the emotion” before thanking the members of cast and crew present and suggesting that »

Tiff Trailers For ‘BrOTHERHOOD,’ ‘I Am Not Madame Bovary,’ and ‘A Death in the Gunj’

26 July 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With news about Toronto International Film Festival’s rather exciting 2016 line-up breaking today, a collection of trailers have also been released for a handful of the selections. The first is Feng Ziaogang‘s I Am Not Madame Bovary, which largely features beautiful paintings before moving into even more gorgeous imagery in a peculiar circular aspect ratio.

There’s also the striking (and lengthy, potentially spoiler-filled) trailer for A Death in the Gunj, the directorial debut of Indian actress Konkona Sen Sharma. She looks to have a very strong grasp of a visual vocabulary, probably due to the 40-plus films she’s worked on in an acting capacity.

Lastly, there’s the first trailer, and new images, for Noel Clarke‘s British crime drama BrOTHERHOOD, which caps the trilogy that also includes KiDULTHOOD and AdULTHOOD. See all the trailers below, along with our coverage of Tiff here as it comes in. »

26 July 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Toronto International Film Festival sounded the opening bell of Oscar season on Tuesday, unveiling a list of high profile films that will use the annual gathering to launch their awards campaigns. Major releases that will be looking to make a splash and score with critics include Denis Villeneuve’s alien invasion thriller “Arrival,” Peter Berg’s disaster drama “Deepwater Horizon,” and Rob Reiner’s historical biopic “Lbj.”

The film festival will kick off on Sept. 8 with the world premiere of “The Magnificent Seven,” a remake of the John Sturges classic that was itself a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s “Seven Samurai.” It stars Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt as gunslingers who are enlisted to protect a small town, while marking director Antoine Fuqua’s third time at the festival.

Tiff Reveals First Slate of 2016 Titles, Including ‘Magnificent Seven,’ ‘American Honey,’ ‘La La Land’ and ‘Birth of A Nation’

26 July 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Toronto International Film Festival — aka Tiff — has announced its first round of picks for this year’s festival, including Galas and Special Presentations, along with the festival’s opening night selection, Antoine Fuqua’s “The Magnificent Seven,” and their closing night pick, Kelly Fremon Craig’s feature directorial debut “The Edge of Seventeen.” Filled with early awards contenders, returning filmmakers and favorites from other festivals from around the globe, it’s a meaty selection of offerings that firmly announces the imminent arrival of the cinematic bonanza otherwise known as the fall festival season.

There are plenty of familiar faces here, including Denis Villeneuve, who will be bringing his “Arrival” to the same festival that has also screened his “Sicario” and “Prisoners” in previous years. The year after debuting his “Being Charlie” at Tiff, director Rob Reiner will return with his Woody Harrelson-starring biopic “Lbj.” Lone Scherfig, who has »

Movie Review – The Intent (2016)

26 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Intent, 2016.

Directed by Femi Oyeniran and Kalvadour Peterson.

Starring Femi Oyeniran, Dylan Duffus, Scorcher, Shone Romulus, Jade Asha, Nicky Slimting Walker, Sarah Akokhia, Fredi Nwaka, Michelle Greenidge, and Sharea Samuels.

Synopsis:

An undercover cop infiltrates a London street gang that calls themselves the Tic. Their operations transform from petty drug deals to a string of armed robberies.

Femi Oyeniran writes, directs, and produces this film as well as star as the voice of reason Mitch who chooses to no longer affiliate himself with the Tic. One can definitely see Oyeniran’s influences from his better-known roles in Noel Clarke’s Kidulthood and Adulthood as modern slang and a grime soundtrack that abounds this film. Where those films had a director that would assert some semblance of discipline over their actors, Oyeniran appears to have given his actors the freedom to ad-lib much of the dialogue.

Star Trek Into Darkness: exploring the plot three years on

14 July 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 15, 2016

How does Star Trek Into Darkness's plot hold up three years on? Ryan takes a closer look...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness and Prometheus.

It's often the case that post-screening conversations are as much fun as the cinema visit itself. Whether a film's good or bad, sitting and dissecting a movie over a drink or during the car journey home is as much a part of the theatre-going experience as buying popcorn or the joyful sense of anticipation as the lights go down.

Sometimes, it's the most bewildering movies that provoke the most enjoyable discussions. I can still remember the exchanges I had with a friend after watching 2012's Prometheus: why did Rafe Spall tickle that evil-looking space snake? Why did Old Man Weyland hide aboard a ship that was his in the first place? Why didn't Charlize Theron run »
