The Judge review: Robert Downey Jr coasts in muddled melodrama

17 October 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: David Dobkin; Screenwriter: Nick Schenk, Bill Dubuque; Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Jeremy Strong, Vincent D'Onofrio; Running time: 141 mins; Certificate: 15

Robert Downey Jr's career resurgence has been a joy to behold. Without it, we wouldn't have his wry, nuanced, endlessly charismatic Tony Stark, and without Tony Stark we wouldn't have the Marvel Cinematic Universe which has, on the whole, been nothing but good news for comic book movies and the audiences that love them. But Downey hasn't shown much range over the past five years of near-relentless Starking, and The Judge looks ostensibly like a breath of fresh air, his first "serious" role since Joe Wright's little-seen The Soloist in 2009.

But what's most disappointing about David Dobkin's drama, which weaves an engaging but hackneyed web of paternal strife and small-town crime, is just how unsurprising every moment of Downey's performance is. He plays city slicker Hank Palmer, »

Leighton Meester Calls Ex-Boyfriend a "Joker," Says "Stupid" Split Inspired New Album Heartstrings

Step aside, Taylor Swift! Leighton Meester alluded to a "stupid" breakup during an intimate performance and Q&A at the Apple Store in Soho, NYC on Tuesday, Oct. 14. The Gossip Girl alum, promoting the release of her new album, explained to the crowd why she titled the record -- and its eponymous single — Heartstrings. "The song 'Heartstrings' is really special to me," said Meester, 28, who looked pretty after being primped by DreamDry and Caption Nails. "It's really more of a very visual: It represents the feeling of the [...] »

Ben Barnes & Leighton Meester Get Gritty in First 'By the Gun' Trailer

15 October 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You want in this family, you gotta pay the price." After starring in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, actor Ben Barnes hasn't had the best luck with his film choices. He's the lead in the continuously delayed The Seventh Son, and he seems stuck in a rut if forgettable fantasy or sparsely seen films. Maybe there's a chance that could change with By the Gun, a gritty crime thriller set in Boston that sees Barnes entering the world of the Italian mafia. Leighton Meester doesn't seem to be offering much here though, especially with one particularly terrible line delivery on display that we hope is fixed in the final cut. Watch? Here's the first trailer for James Mottern's By the Gun, originally from Yahoo: By the Gun is directed by James Mottern (Trucker) and written by Emilio Mauro. Nick Tortano (Ben Barnes) is a smooth-talking, ambitious criminal from the streets of Boston. »

Watch: First Trailer For Crime Pic 'By The Gun' Starring Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel & Toby Jones

15 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Every now and then a bunch of people get together to make a movie and it lands on our doorstep with little to no warning, and such is the case with "By The Gun." We sorta didn't even know this existed, and frankly, given the names involved, we thought this would've appeared on our radar sooner. Guess not, but at any rate, the first trailer is here. Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel, Toby Jones, and that guy from "The Town" all star in this French/Italian production of a Boston-based story about a young Italian American kid named Nick. He falls in with the aging Boston mafia and restores the organization to its former, fearsome glory. But of course, his rise to the top can only be followed by the inevitable fall, and he won't be able to escape his actions. The real question is whether or not "By The Gun »

Box Office Mojo: The Case of the Mysterious Disappearance and Reappearance of a Website

13 October 2014 7:04 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Box Office Mojo is back – and how tons of information online can vanish when you least expect it By now, everyone who cares about movie box-office information is aware that the website Box Office Mojo, the Web's premier source of box-office news and data, is back online after disappearing for much of Friday and Saturday, October 10-11, 2014. During that period of total silence, Twitter was abuzz with speculations — a technical glitch? A hacker attack? An alien invasion? — lamentations, and eulogies. For a brief while, the ever-reliable (sarcasm) Wikipedia referred to Box Office Mojo in the past tense. How did it all happen? Well, some time on Friday, journalists, bloggers, and box-office aficionados noticed that Box Office Mojo was being redirected to an Internet Movie Database page featuring the latest box-office information — which, on that site, isn't either much "latest" or much information at all. But why would Box Office Mojo be redirected to the IMDb? »

Film Review: Inauthentic ‘The Judge’ Guilty of a Stale Confrontation

11 October 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Here comes “The Judge,” here comes “The Judge.” That 1960s catchphrase gets new meaning in the film featuring Robert Downey Jr. and veteran Robert Duvall, in a angry generational face-off that makes little sense and provides a stiff courtroom drama that felt like bad TV.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

This is supposed to be a platform for two great film actors, Downey and Duvall, to troll for Oscar nominations in a familiar Daddy-doesn’t-love-me-because-he’s-an-angry-guy story. There is nothing authentic about the reasons regarding their disdain for each other, except the type of misunderstandings that could have cleared up with one phone call. The centerpiece courtroom sequence, in which Lawyer Downey must defend Judge Duvall, was the height of fall-into-place narrative convenience, and should never have gone to trial – but the prosecutor character played by Billy Bob Thornton (naturally) has it in for the arrogant Downey. It all concludes with a tacked-on hackneyed ending, »

The Judge Trailer Will Pull You Into The Theater

10 October 2014 5:41 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Judge is hitting on October 10th, and the cast alone should get you to theaters. Robert Downey Jr., who brought a certain gravity to the charm of Iron Man, which has helped make those films so successful, returns to a more dramatic role. As Hank Palmer, Downey Jr. finds himself in the middle of several emotional tangles when he has to return to the small town he left for New York City, and is forced to reconnect with his estranged father (Robert Duvall). That would make for a rough enough time out from Hank’s life as a big time attorney, but Hank not only has to interact with his father, he has to defend him in a murder trial.

Oscar-winner Robert Duvall plays a veteran judge with over forty years on the bench, who is obviously a prominent member of the community. A car accident seems not to have been all that accidental, »

Why You Should Postpone Seeing The Judge in Theaters

10 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Robert Downey, Jr. puts on an amazing performance — and looks as handsome as ever — in The Judge. But if depressing (and cliché) movies aren’t really your thing, you may want to wait to Redbox this one.

In the film, a big-city lawyer (Downey) returns to his small town roots and estranged family, including his father, wonderfully played by Robert Duvall. One thing to note is that while it’s definitely not as corny as the trailer lets on, it’s still a little corny. The cast is rounded out by Jeremy Strong (who is heart-wrenching as Downey’s youngest, mentally impaired brother), Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D’Onofrio, Dax Shepard, and Leighton Meester.

Fantastic cast aside, here are the most important things you should know about The Judge before buckling in for a 2.5-hour emotional roller coaster.

Jack Nicholson turned down the lead role.

After Downey was already committed to the project, »
