The Hatton Garden Job Review

11 April 2017 6:10 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Guest

An attempt at a super cool, stylish crime caper, a la Guy Ritchie, The Hatton Garden Job falls flat on its face because, well, Guy Ritchie didn’t make it. Imagine a Vauxhall Nova with a very expensive body kit, big noisy exhaust and go faster stripes down the sides. To the driver it might feel and sound like they’re driving a car from The Fast and the Furious franchise but to everyone else, it just looks like a Vauxhall Nova with some money thrown at it. And thrown in all the wrong places.

Based on the real life events that took place in April 2015 – Ronnie Thompson is the first, and unlikely to be the last, director to bring this remarkable story to the silver screen, of when four elderly men pulled off the heist of the century – stealing over £200m worth of items.

The Expendables 4: if Stallone’s out, Schwarzenegger’s out

5 April 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 6, 2017

Arnold Schwarzenegger won't be back for the next The Expendables film if Sylvester Stallone does indeed quit the movie...

Ulp: it sounds like there are growing problems behind the scenes on The Expendables 4. A pretty sizeable clue came to light when it was revealed that the creator of the series – Sylvester Stallone – had walked away from the fourth film. He was reported to be disagreeing over quality issues to do with the next film, as well as choice of director. And thus he walked away.

Now, though, it seems as though if Stallone goes, Schwarzenegger is going too. In a new interview, Arnold Schwarzenegger has affirmed to Entertainment Weekly that “there is no Expendables without Sly. I would never do the movie without him, no”.

Which seems pretty straightforward.

Schwarzenegger also admitted that he didn’t really like The Expendables 3. “You know, I think the »

From EastEnders to Outnumbered: how TV found drama in Brexit

22 February 2017 9:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Anti-immigrant graffiti daubed on the Queen Vic’s doors sparked controversy this week. But can – or even should – TV shows tackle current political issues?

EastEnders on Tuesday night was really about rising tension between Walford regular Denise and teen troublemaker Keegan. It started with some desecrated daffodils and ended with an old-fashioned clip around the ear. But it was a short scene in between that turned heads. In it, Danny Dyer’s landlord Mick Carter is cleaning graffiti from the Queen Vic’s doors, where a sign advertises a Polish night. “Poles Go Home,” the words read. “It’s like the end of the world round here at the moment,” says Donna, a market trader. “Or it’s the Britain we live in now,” adds Konrad, a Polish shopkeeper who had helped plan the event.

It was the latest attempt to represent the national debate about Brexit in soap opera. »

Tilda Swinton is the new favorite to replace Peter Capaldi in Doctor Who

16 February 2017 1:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ladbrokes has updated its odds with regards Peter Capaldi’s replacement in Doctor Who. According to the bookmaker, the new favourite is Doctor Strange star Tilda Swinton, which would put her in the history books as the first ever female Doctor.

Keep in mind that these are just betting odds founded on a great degree of research, taking into account statements from actors, historical trends, and the push to finally give audiences a female Doctor (Ladbrokes are offering just 5/4 that a female actress will be cast).

Some other interesting names under consideration are Olivia Colman, Ben Whishaw, and Richard Ayoade, while Kris Marshall is 4/1 second favourite following his departure from Death in Paradise.

Why Spaceballs is the Star Wars spoof we need

14 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Andrew Blair Feb 15, 2017

As the Epic Movie team announce they have Star Wars in their sights, might we have a chat about Mel Brooks' Spaceballs, amongst others?

Readers of this site may have read last week's news that there's to be a new Star Wars spoof. This film comes from the team who brought us Date Movie, Epic Movie, and apparently something called The Starving Games which blissfully passed me by. Jason Friedberg and Aaron Selzer make relatively cheap movies that, despite critical maulings, tend to make money at the box office. When I worked at a cinema, an eleven year old boy went to see Meet The Spartans three times, proclaiming it the best film he had ever seen.

Danny Dyer wants to take over from Peter Capaldi on Doctor Who

12 February 2017 3:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Peter Capaldi announcing that he’s calling time on his role as The Doctor, the bookmakers wasted little time in drawing up a shortlist for his potential successor on the long-running BBC sci-fi Doctor Who.

One name that was perhaps unsurprisingly absent from the initial betting was Danny Dyer, but the EastEnders star has now revealed that he’d be keen to take on the role as the first Cockney Doctor.

“I think I could do it easy,” Dyer told The Daily Star. I’d keep my accent too.”

Dyer’s contract on EastEnders is apparently up later this year, so schedule-wise, he’d be free to take over from Capaldi, who is set to make his exit from Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas Special.

Parenting For Idiots: celebs' boring baby stories may remind you of your own

11 February 2017 2:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Danny Dyer, Lauren Laverne, Freddie Flintoff and more dish up their nappy poo-mares in this talking heads doc. It shows exactly how dull parenting chat is

Before I start this column, let me just tell you about a crazy dream I had the other night. Only joking … I know that nobody wants to hear about someone else’s dream. I’m fully versed in the words of 1980s poet and philosopher Pauline Mole, who said: “There’s only one thing more boring than listening to other people’s dreams, and that’s listening to their problems.” But without wanting to cast doubt on Pauline’s sagacity, she undoubtedly neglected to mention that there is another thing even more boring than other people’s dreams. And that’s listening to other people’s baby stories.

I know this because I watched some episodes of Parenting For Idiots (Thursdays, 10pm, Channel 4 »

Skins: revisiting E4’s teen anthology 10 years on

24 January 2017 9:58 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Jan 25, 2017

Skins debuted on E4 10 years ago. We revisit a bold and unique adolescent drama that kick-started countless careers...

It’s been a decade since Skins, E4’s controversial teen drama, premiered. At the time, it was a source of anxiety for parents about what teenagers were getting up to when they weren’t looking, but for television executives it was pure gold. It achieved that rare feat - it got young people to watch and talk about it - and, after seven years of drinking, drugs and general debauchery, it bowed out in 2013.

Now it’s simply another teen drama of the past, perhaps remembered by most for the real-world ‘Skins Parties’ it inspired rather than the steps it took or the ground it broke. Whether it was casting complete unknowns, »
