Pride and Prejudice and Zombies review – when the undead are dead boring

4 February 2016 10:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Wise-cracking Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy slash away at reanimated corpses in a bloody reworking of Jane Austen. But it’s not as much fun as it sounds

Early in Pride and Prejudice Mr Darcy offers his opinion of Elizabeth Bennet to Mr Bingley: “She is tolerable.” Would that I could say the same about this stupid film. Representing the lowest form of mashup, Burr Steers’ ridiculous adaptation is, to be fair, a fascinating example of an idiotic culture gone horribly wrong.

I have not read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (the “Quirk Book classic”, as it is described in the credits) for two reasons. One, life is finite, and two, if I simply had to dig into Seth Grahame-Smith’s oeuvre, I’d choose Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. It has to be said that the first two-thirds of Steers’ film has stretches that aren’t too bad. »

Ripper Street takes a turn to the Gothic in the latest episode of series 4, which is going from strength to strength...

This review contains spoilers.

4.3 A White World Made Red

When a man is found in an abattoir store hung upside down and drained of his blood and a woman is found nearby, also exsanguinated, Reid, Drake and Jackson investigate the double murder that seems to be resulting from scientific experimentation. Connecting back to Newgate, the killings threaten Jackson’s plans to keep Susan hidden and they’re both prepared to take whatever steps necessary to ensure she isn’t found. Elsewhere, Mathilda’s reading the latest bestselling novel and using it to make advances on the not-so-unsuspecting Sergeant Drummond.

Given its 1897 setting, it’s not surprising that Ripper Street decided to take a turn to the Gothic in its current run as Mathilda (a girl after »

The newly bureaucratic policing system - and lots of deaths - are providing difficult challenges for Edmund in Ripper Street this week...

This review contains spoilers.

4.2 Some Conscience Lost

If Edmund Reid thought his transition back to his old life at Lehman Street was going to be an easy one, he was sadly mistaken, as he discovers in the opening to Some Conscience Lost. After a boy dies in his arms and a distraught woman tries to claim the boy as her son, Reid finds himself battling the newly bureaucratic policing system as well as his former sergeant, Drake, who wants him to investigate a spate of victims having their right hands chopped off in Whitechapel. Drake is too busy trying to track down the murderer of a Salvation Army captain to worry about either, whilst Jackson is maintaining his drunken pretence of grieving for the still-very-alive Susan, »

Lost in Karastan movie review: lost indeed

22 January 2016 4:46 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Snarky humor and a wonderfully put-on Matthew Macfadyen are the best reasons to see a satire that ultimately seems to forget where it was heading. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Emil Forester (Matthew Macfadyen: Anna Karenina) makes, in the words of his cleaning lady, “strange films”; his last one was shot entirely on a container freighter in the middle of an ocean. But he’s stumped for an idea for his next one. Will an invitation to a film festival in the “Autonomous Republic of Karastan” — motto: “land of inspiration” — give him the spark he needs to start a new project? In fact, he won’t have any choice: President Abashiliev (Richard van Weyden) insists that Emil direct an epic film about a historic Karastani national hero, and despite the fact that Emil doesn »

Ripper Street series 4 episode 1 review: The Stranger's Home

The Ripper Street series 4 opening two-parter is ambitious, confident, and very much back in business...

This review contains spoilers.

4.1 The Stranger's Home

In Ripper Street’s finale last series, we were left with our heroes scattered and in quite an array of situations. For Matthew Macfadyen’s Edmund Reid, it was something of a happy one, recovered from his near fatal gunshot wounds and reunited with his daughter to carve out a life together by the sea. Drake (Jerome Flynn) was left in charge of H Division with Jackson (Adam Rothenberg) still in his employ. Susan (MyAnna Buring) languished in Newgate Prison, awaiting her death sentence, due to be carried out after the birth and nursing of her son.

It’s now 1897, a big year for both the history of Great Britain and culturally speaking too. It’s the year of Dracula, Oscar Wilde’s release from prison and, »
