‘Snatch’ Review: One Punch From Brad Pitt Had More Power Than Crackle’s New TV Show

16 March 2017 3:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been 16 years since Guy Ritchie’s London crime story, “Snatch,” first debuted in the U.S., and, while the black comedy pulled in a decent sum, its primary accomplishment was of a cult fandom (and earning Guy Ritchie a shot at the big time). With that in mind, I don’t feel too bad for only remembering a few key moments from a film built on a sharp wit and distinct characters:

Alan Ford’s thick, creepy glasses; Dennis Farina’s crass American foil to all those classy Brits; Jason Statham proving he can do more than just beat the hell out of his co-stars; the tragic fate of Benicio del Toro’s Franky Four Fingers; and, of course, the sole iconic element of Ritchie’s first major studio film (aside from ultra slo-mo fight scenes): Brad Pitt’s gibberish-spouting gypsy boxer with a devastating right hook, »

TV Review: ‘Snatch’ on Crackle, Starring Rupert Grint

16 March 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Guy Ritchie’s 2000 film “Snatch” would not be my first pick for a movie that could be massaged into a television franchise — one with 10 hourlong episodes in the bag and possible future seasons lurking on the horizon. The film is a comedy of capers, where crooked hustlers from every walk of life descend on London to pursue their own selfish ends — whether that’s a caravan, a dog, a couple thousand pounds, or a diamond the size of a fist. It’s a film dependent on a tight, expertly woven narrative to feel like more than a mess — and because of its showy, razor-sharp editing, it makes for a violent urban romp that is ineffably cool, even as it reveals its characters’ fundamental, pathetic stupidity.

Snatch,” the Crackle show, imports the general subject matter — small-time crooks, jewels, fixed underground boxing matches — and visual and auditory style of the film — smash cuts, ballsy »

Snatch Season 1 Review

15 March 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided for review prior to broadcast.

Few directors have enjoyed an opening one-two like Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, Guy Ritchie’s crime capers that starred lovable rogues exploring the underbelly of London. The latter is now being adapted into a TV series by the beautifully-named network Crackle, but as it turns out, it has little to do with its namesake, telling a fresh story in modern London with a new all-star cast who’ve walked straight out of the pages of a girl’s fantasy scrapbook.

Where Ritchie’s Snatch gave us tough guys like Vinnie Jones and Jason Statham, here we get hunky Luke Pasqualino of Skins fame, Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick and even Ron Rupert Grint in the role of aristocratic bumbleton Charlie Cavendish-Scott. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if Hoult, Radcliffe and Harington are lined up for future episodes. »

Exclusive: See 'Gossip Girl' Star Ed Westwick as a Fiery Cuban Gangster in 'Snatch' Sneak Peek

15 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Gossip Girl star Ed Westwick is a long way from the Upper East Side in his new Crackle series, Snatch.

In Et’s exclusive sneak peek at Thursday’s series premiere, Westwick’s Sonny Castillo, a fiery and ruthless Cuban gangster, is counting his cash when his “moll,” Lotti (Phoebe Dyvenor), pesters him about getting her fair cut of the earnings from his London club, El Flamingo.

“Always with the drama, Lotti,” Sonny sneers. “You need to center your fire, baby girl.”

Watch: Chace Crawford Talks Life After 'Gossip Girl' and Reuniting With Ed Westwick!

“Yeah, you’re right,” Lotti agrees, grabbing a handful of cash and dipping it into a burning candle before tossing it in the air. “I’ll torch this place to the ground with you in it.”

See Sonny’s explosive reaction to Lotti’s stunt, and find out why “no one leaves Santiago Castillo,” in the clip »

‘Snatch: the Series’ looks amazing!

7 March 2017 7:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It’s already great to hear there’s going to be a series on the cult classic Snatch. It’s even better to see the wide array of actors Crackle signed on. But now a teaser trailer was just released… and wow, next week cannot come fast enough.

Crackle is set to release ten one-hour episodes of the new Snatch series next Thursday, March 16. Alex De Rakoff (who has previous experience with Grand Theft Auto) is directing the series – as well as wrote several of the episodes, and stars your childhood actors all grown up.

Completely unrecognizable from his Harry Potter past, Rupert Grint sheds Ron Weasley for Charlie Cavendis– and he looks good. Phoebe Dynevor, of Waterloo Road and Prisoners Wives, plays Lotti Mott, while Scream Queens’ Lucien Laviscount plays Billy Ayers and American Gothic’s Stephanie Leonidas plays Chloe Koen. Also in the show include Tamer Hassan (Kickass »

Review: The Bye Bye Man Misses the High Mark of its Promising Potential

16 January 2017 10:45 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It’s where some people keep their keys, money, or a good book, but the nightstand drawer in director Stacy Title’s The Bye Bye Man holds something far more sinister than spare change. When spoken aloud, what’s carved into its wooden surface has the ability to scare your soul and scar your psyche, so it’s a shame that the film featuring this frightening piece of furniture—and the entity it unleashes—doesn’t live up to its promising potential.

Seeking a home of their own after surviving the dorms at their Wisconsin university, lifelong best friends Elliot (Douglas Smith) and John (Lucien Laviscount) move into an old house that’s farther away from campus, but much closer to future horrors. Joining them in their eerie abode is Elliot’s girlfriend, Sasha (Cressida Bonas), giving their living situation a Three’s Company vibe. One night, Elliot discovers “The Bye Bye Man »

The Bye Bye Man movie review: don’t think it, don’t say it, don’t see it

16 January 2017 7:44 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… One of the most inept films I’ve ever seen. Cheaply made, poorly directed, badly acted, oddly edited, and ultimately insultingly stupid. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of most mainstream horror movies

I have not read the source material

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

So, three university students in Madison, Wisconsin, rent an absurdly large and ridiculously rambling off-campus house. Inside is a haunted night table — that’s right, I said “haunted night table” — that summons the most feeble boogeyman horror movies have ever seen. He’s called the Bye Bye Man, and he’s like Slender Man without the catchy memes. He drops coins on the floor, makes you hear the sound of a train in the distance, scratches up your walls, and — this is the eeriest bit of all — he makes »

Hidden Figures Wins Box Office Weekend #2 with $20.4M

15 January 2017 12:02 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Often times, if two movies are less than $1 million apart when the box office estimates are released, those movies will swap places when the actual numbers arrive on Monday. Last weekend, it looked like Rogue One would repeat atop the box office with $21.9 million, with the expanding Hidden Figures following just behind with $21.8 million. When the actual figures were released on Monday, Hidden Figures ended up on top with $22.8 million, just ahead of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with $22.06 million. This weekend, Hidden Figures managed to expand even further, repeating atop the box office for the second weekend in a row with $20.4 million, in a weekend where two more expanding movies didn't even crack the top 10.

This weekend, both the true story adaptation Hidden Figures and Rogue One went up against three new movies, Paramount's Monster Trucks, Stx Entertainment's The Bye Bye Man and Open Road Films' Sleepless. There »
