Is it the sherry talking, or is Matt Smith looking more and more like a stretch version of Gordon Ramsay? Interestingly, for lovers of showbiz Christmas cracker trivia, both were promising young footballers forced by injury to become international TV stars. Anyway he was back (Matt, not Gordon) for yesterday's Doctor Who special, a beautifully inventive reworking of A Christmas Carol featuring Michael Gambon as Kazran Sardick, the heartless kingpin of a Dickensian otherworld refusing to help a doomed huge spaceliner full of passengers stranded in one of his clouds. Oh the humanity, Mrs Cratchit! And, lawks, wasn't that Katherine Jenkins frozen alive in an upright »

War declared as Upstairs, Downstairs creator fires volley at Downton Abbey

16 December 2010 4:02 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Trouble began when Jean Marsh suggested Downton Abbey was a thinly-disguised facsimile of original Upstairs, Downstairs

In the genteel world of TV costume drama, any tensions are usually scripted – and fictional. But an unlikely spat has broken out between Jean Marsh, actor and co-creator of Upstairs, Downstairs – which will return to BBC1 this Christmas – and Hugh Bonneville, star of rival ITV Edwardian drama Downton Abbey.

Hackles were raised when Marsh suggested that Downton Abbey, one of the unexpected hits of the year, was a thinly-disguised facsimile of the original Upstairs, Downstairs, which ran from 1971 to 1975 and has been watched by an estimated 1 billion people worldwide.

"I think we were all surprised," Marsh told BBC1's The One Show. "The new Upstairs, Downstairs had been in the works for about three years. We were trying to sort out … 40 years of rights and then it also started – Downton Abbey – in the Edwardian era, »

My alternative British Independent Film awards 2010

6 December 2010 6:55 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Last night's Bifas saw Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush win prizes for The King's Speech. But which other gongs should have been handed out? Here are my suggestions ...

The annual film awards that have proved most in step with America's Oscars are Britain's own Baftas. For better or worse, and unlike the national film awards of virtually every other country, with their inward-looking domestic focus, the Baftas have a full international scope.

Which is all very well, but where does that leave British film? The answer, of course, is the British Independent Film awards, which over its 13 years has expanded into the whopping gap created by Bafta's transatlantic perspective. While Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker won the same big prizes at the Baftas (best film, director) that it went on to win at the Oscars a few weeks later, at least the Bifa were there last year to »

Your next box set: The Jewel in the Crown

16 September 2010 10:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Poignant and understated, The Jewel in the Crown's account of the decline of the British Raj is one of the high-water marks of 1980s British TV

Saturated in gin fizz and repressed emotion, The Jewel in the Crown sits alongside Brideshead Revisited as the high-water mark of 1980s British TV. Understated and hugely poignant, its 14 episodes trace the decline of the British Raj from Gandhi's inflammatory Quit India speech of 1942 to partition and the riots that followed.

Paul Scott's original Raj Quartet novels become much more navigable in Ken Taylor's elegant screenplay. Focusing on just two of the quartet's many storylines, the series, which first aired on ITV, follows the struggles of young Hari Kumar (Art Malik), an Indian raised in England who returns to find himself "too Indian for the English and too English for the Indians". Kumar's tragic affair with English girl Daphne Manners leads »

Review: The Wolfman

13 June 2010 5:12 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is the Pure Movies review of The Wolfman, directed by Joe Johnston and starring Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving, Art Malik and Roger Frost. The vampire market has seen something of a resurgence of late. Like Dracula himself emerging from the dark recesses of his coffin, the genre has risen to the forefront, from the teen-angst of the twilight series to the more overt eroticism of True Blood. With a list that includes, but is not limited to, Daybreakers, Being Human and, now, The Vampire Diaries, it is hard to have not seen at least one pair of fangs in the last few months. It is inevitable, then, that Universal would turn their heads to other forties horror icons; in this case The Wolf Man. »

Lr's The Blu Room: The Wolfman Blu-Ray Review

1 June 2010 2:08 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Wolfman (Blu-ray)Universal Home Entertainment2010/Rated R & Unrated/119minsList Price $39.98 – Available June 1, 2010The phrase “bloody good time” is no doubt synonymous with The Wolfman, a remake of the 1941 classic horror film of the same name, which unlike its predecessor, has had a troubled production history. The changing of directors, score composers, editors and a delayed release date don't seem to matter much anymore since the film succeeds as an engaging popcorn picture. That's not to say the movie is without flaws and if the filmmakers had striven harder this could have been a new classic instead of a by the numbers remake. Horror fans will no doubt appreciate the blood and gore, but if the character development in the film had been fleshed out a bit the film could have been better than average. Still, in an age of soulless and stale generic fare, this picture does succeed in »

Movie review: 'Sex and the City 2'

Courtesy of Warner Bros.  Oh, yes ... they sing too.

Sex and the City 2 falls into a rare category where society believes gender plays a role in the movie critic world.  Audiences will say that guys just don't get it.  Hence the fans' reasoning for all the negative reviews the first installment received.  Before continuing on, here's a thought.  Check out my reviews of "guy flicks."  About half of them get the not-so-thrilled treatment too.  To really drive the point home, look at the Twilight: New Moon review.  Shocking!  

See ... most of us are professionals.  So don't get your panties in a bunch when one (man or woman) tears into this 140-minute highly produced mess.

Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) is now Carrie Preston after marrying Big (Chris Noth).  The couple moved into a place of their own and are adjusting to married life.  Which equates to Big enjoying quiet »

Kevin Carr’s Weekly Report Card: February 12, 2010

12 February 2010 2:04 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The Wolfman Studio: Universal Rated: R for bloody horror violence and gore Starring: Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, Hugo Weaving and Art Malik Directed by: Joe Johnston What it’s about: Universal Pictures waited almost 70 years to remake this classic monster movie, and now has doe so with a mixture of CGI and prosthetic make-up. Benicio Del Toro plays the tormented Lawrence Talbot, a man who is cursed. After coming home to investigate the death of his brother, Talbot is bitten by a werewolf and soon starts to hunt human prey when the moon is full. What I liked: I have been a fan of the 1941 film The Wolf Man ever since I saw it as a child. I was bummed when it wasn’t remade along with Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein in the early 1990s. (The best we had was Jack Nicholson in Wolf, and »

FM Review: The Wolfman

12 February 2010 8:11 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Let’s face it: if you frequent a website called Famous Monsters of Filmland, you probably aren’t waiting to read a review before deciding whether or not to see Universal’s remake of their own classic The Wolfman. It’s more a question of when, not if, and even if the werewolf effects in this film amounted to a man in a hair suit wearing a plastic mask held in place by an elastic band, you’d probably be in line for the first possible showing, and I’d be standing just ahead of you. Still, maybe some of you are forced to deal with minor hassles like day jobs or school before you can make it to your local moviehouse, and I can think of no better way to kill time waiting for those obligations to pass than surfing famousmonsters.com, so let’s get on with it. »

Benicio Del Toro stars in the update of an early horror classic. By Peter Bradshaw

Oh, how easily humanity's veneer of civilisation cracks to reveal the snarling brute within. As Jerry famously ­mumbled to giggling, hair-stroking Barbara in BBC TV's The Good Life: "It's the gesture ... brings out the beast in me." Benicio del Toro, taking the lead in this new revival of the classic horror tale Wolfman, has the twitching nostrils and lips of some grunting demi-beast who somewhere on the darkened moor scents Felicity Kendal's musk. In the second Twilight film, New Moon, ­moviegoers were explicitly ­introduced to the idea of dangerous physical ­intimacy with a werewolf, yet this new Wolfman keeps it relatively clean. Del Toro looks longingly at Emily Blunt's ­exquisitely sculpted collarbone, a decent distance north of undisclosed cleavage. There's even a kiss. But we have to wait for that chaste full moon before the hair-sprouting, »
