Toronto Film Review: ‘The Judge’

4 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Gavels are slammed, tempers are lost and bowels are evacuated with great force in David Dobkin’s “The Judge,” Some elements ring truer than others in this ambitious blend of dysfunctional-family melodrama and legal procedural, but all of them are just about held together by the ferocious onscreen chemistry between two Roberts (Duvall and Downey Jr.), playing an overbearing father and a black-sheep son who find their already tense relationship literally put on trial. Refreshing as it is to see Downey step out of the Iron Man suit for a spell, the jury’s still out on whether an impressive talent roster can draw enough grown-up eyeballs to this overlong, resolutely old-fashioned male weepie, set for release Oct. 10 by Warner Bros.

For all the creakily elaborate Tennessee Williams-meets-John Grisham machinations cooked up by screenwriters Nick Schenk and Bill Dubuque (working from a story by Dobkin and Schenk), “The Judge »

Robert Downey Jr. And Robert Duvall Defend Honor With New Poster For The Judge

27 August 2014 3:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Touching down at the Toronto International Film Festival next week for its world premiere is Warner Bros.The Judge, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall. While anticipation is certainly high, I can’t say yet that I’m particularly excited for this one. The trailer didn’t do much for me and despite the terrific actors in the lead roles, I’m not feeling too eager to go run out and see it.

That being said, I’m not discounting The Judge just yet. I’ll definitely catch it at some point while it’s playing at the festival and I’m curious to hear how audiences and critics react to it once it’s screened. After all, Downey Jr. is amongst the hottest actors in Hollywood right now and it seems like he simply cannot give a poor performance at this point. For his involvement alone, I think »

New Producers Flooding Indie TV With Faith and Family Friendly Fare

11 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Just when it seems that the world’s largest media congloms are tightening their grip on the airwaves, an independent TV production boom has erupted in the nation’s heartland.

In Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Louisiana, Michigan and other states, a new breed of low-budget telepic and series producers is responding to the spike in demand for family- and faith-friendly content from a clutch of growing cable and digital multicast channels.

Indie outfits such as Up, Magic Johnson’s Aspire, Insp, TV One, Bounce TV and BYUtv as well as Own, Bet, Hallmark Channel, Lifetime and Lifetime Movie Network are all in need of a steady supply of fresh programming, particularly made-fors. That has helped create an ecosystem for producers working well outside traditional showbiz entities to deliver productions with unabashedly feel-good themes and inspirational stories.
