Eddie the Eagle movie review: white man can’t jump, much

29 March 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Yet another celebration of an overconfident mediocre white man as charming, heroic, and worthy of emulation. It’s inspirational! I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Canadian writer and feminist Sarah Hagi recently said a glorious thing: “Lord, give me the confidence of a mediocre white man.” This kept ringing in my brain as I tolerated yet another celebration of an overconfident mediocre white man as charming, heroic, and worthy of emulation. In many ways, Eddie the Eagle is more insufferable than the whatever Triumph of the Ordinary Schmoe that opened last week at the local multiplex, and the one two weeks before that, because it is based on a true story that has been largely fictionalized to, theoretically, render it even more “inspirational” than it would otherwise have been. While stories about actual brilliant women »

'Deadpool' Crushes the Box Office Again with $31.5M

28 February 2016 10:43 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $285.6 million domestically and $266.4 million internationally for a global total of $552.1 million. Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. Deadpool had no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row, taking in $31.5 million.

While Deadpool has had success beyond most analysts' expectations, its second weekend drop of 57.4% could mean that it may not have as much staying power in theaters. For example, throughout Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 10-week run in theaters, they have only posted a decrease of more than 50% once, and they have consistently managed to drop somewhere in the 30% range almost every weekend, »

Can 'Gods of Egypt' Take Down 'Deadpool' at the Box Office?

23 February 2016 9:12 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $236.8 million domestically and $256.2 million internationally for a global total of $493 million, and it will likely cross the $500 million milestone sometime this week. Heading into its third frame in theaters, Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. If the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com are accurate, Deadpool should have no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row.

While Deadpool has had success beyond most analysts' expectations, its second weekend drop of 57.4% could mean that it may not have as much staying power in theaters. For example, throughout Star Wars: The Force Awakens »

‘Eddie the Eagle’ Review

7 February 2016 10:15 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Tim McInnerny, Rune Temte, Edvin Endre, Jo Hartley, Daniel Westwood, Tony Paul West, Ania Sowinski, Daniel Ings, Anastasia Harrold | Written by Sean Macaulay, Simon Kelton | Directed by Dexter Fletcher

A comedy-drama based on the true story of the plucky underdog defying expectations at the 1988 Winter Olympics under the tutelage of a cranky yet caring American coach who’s turned their back on the sport that made them a star? Yep, Cool Runnings is a classic, no doubt about it ,and it can now finally have an Calgary ’88 double bill with Eddie the Eagle, which tells the story of an even more unlikely athletic hero.

I didn’t know a lot about Eddie the Eagle, other than that he was a ski jumper. As I understand it, this biopic runs a little fast and loose with the facts and the end result is about »

Super Bowl Trailer For Dexter Fletcher’s Eddie The Eagle Soars Online

4 February 2016 1:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Few cinematic tropes are tailored to as wide an audience as that of the underdog story; particularly in the sporting genre, with dramas in the vein of Hoosiers and Remember the Titans often remembered fondly for championing a luckless team or individual overcoming the odds just when everyone believed them to be down and out. Step forth, Eddie The Eagle.

Whether Dexter Fletcher’s real-life sports biopic is held in the same regard as those aforementioned genre classics in years to come is up for question, though for now, footballing stars such as Russell Wilson, Drew Brees and former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner trumpet the film’s arrival in today’s all-new teaser.

Featuring the admittedly slanted reactions of Wilson, Brees and Warner, there’s little in the way of new footage from Eddie the Eagle actually included. One thing’s for sure, however, 20th Century Fox and Lionsgate »

"It's truly a remarkable story. If you love movies like Hoosiers, Rudy and Remember the Titans, you should see Eddie the Eagle." That's the perfect quote from Drew Brees to help sell this sports movie to the masses.

Kingsman star Taron Egerton stars as Eddie Edwards, the titular "Eddie the Eagle" - England's first ever ski jumping athlete. The full cast includes Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Tim McInnerny and Jo Hartley. This Big Game-themed spot features actual football players such as Kurt Warner, Russell Wilson & Drew Brees. They're really pushing this film, and I'll still say it looks damn good.

Movie Review – Eddie the Eagle (2016)

29 January 2016 1:41 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Eddie the Eagle, 2016.

Directed by Dexter Fletcher.

Starring Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken and Tim McInnerny.

Synopsis:

Charting the Olympic career of famous UK ski-jumper Michael “Eddie the Eagle” Edwards…

Inspiration is a funny thing. Idols who achieve feats we can’t comprehend are on a different planet. Inspirations are easier to understand. We’re inspired by the tough goal they’ve set for themselves and realistically appreciate their tenacity in hitting the target. We think we could do it ourselves. Eddie the Eagle has a huge heart and celebrates the enthusiastic passion of a wannabe Olympian, Michael “Eddie the Eagle” Edwards. First and foremost, Eddie the Eagle is a comedy, laughing with, and at, Michael Edwards, the UK’s entry for ski-jumping. But there is a conflict. Is Eddie achieving a feat we can’t comprehend or is he simply managing to do something nobody else cares to do? »

Hugh Jackman Imparts Skiing Wisdom In New Eddie The Eagle Clip

27 January 2016 1:43 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman both appeared in the news cycle earlier today, when the former teased Kingsman 2‘s international scope and the latter revealed that Wolverine 3 is quietly making progress behind the scenes. But before getting caught up in the comic book maelstrom once again, Egerton and Jackman will star alongside each other in Dexter Fletcher’s sports biopic Eddie the Eagle.

Thrusting Egerton out onto the icy ski slopes as celebrated Olympic skier Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, Fletcher’s drama has been pitched as a comedy-drama, offering a intimate take on Edwards’ journey to the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary.

Emerging as the first competitor to represent his native country of Great Britain in the late 80s, Egerton’s character entered the standings as the archetypal dark horse, though under the guidance of Jackman’s atypical ski expert Chuck Berghorn, the pair achieve what went down in the »

Sherlock: 34 nerdy details from The Abominable Bride

We’ve scoured the scenes of Sherlock special, The Abominable Bride, to dig out its nerdy details. Spoilers ahead…

Warning: contains spoilers for The Abominable Bride.

If, by the time Sherlock special The Abominable Bride came around, your usually-shining powers of observation had been dulled by New Year’s indulgence, never fear.

We’ve hunted around the episode with (mostly) clear heads and stumbled upon a few fun titbits, from Wilder the Diogenes butler, to set design jokes, nods to Doyle’s original stories, Paget’s illustrations, previous Sherlock episodes and more…

1. This dilated pupil (we'd suggest Cumberbatch’s rather than Freeman’s?) is the first hint-in-hindsight that what’s to follow involves narcotics.

2. Both A Study In Pink and The Abominable Bride start with Watson waking up from a nightmare of his time in an Afghan war, centuries apart.

3. Joining the regular cast’s Victorian counterparts »
