Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods review: “One of the best animated films of the year.”

21 August 2016 1:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods review: The famous Franco-Belgian comic creation returns to the big screen in a CG effort that rivals the best. Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods review

Asterix has always been a popular comic character, and arguably the most famous Franco-Belgian comic character around (Tintin may wrestle with him there). 325 million books have been sold, and 13 feature films, 4 of them being the competent live-action movies between 1999 and 2012 that were ruined by awful dubbing. The latest attempt makes Asterix CG, and now back in animated form surely the dubbing won’t be anywhere near as distracting. Asterix (Jack Whitehall)lives in a village of Gauls that resist Roman occupation, defending themselves thanks to a magic potion that gives them temporary strength. Along with his best friend Obelix (Nick Frost), who doesn’t need the potion as he fell in a batch when he was baby and has constant powers, »

The year is 50 BC. Gual is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely…

One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. Julius Caesar (Jim Broadbent), exasperated by the situation, decides to change tactics. Since his armies are unable to prevail through force, Roman civilisation itself will charm the barbaric Gauls. And so he has a luxurious housing complex built near the village for Roman families, called ‘The Mansions of the Gods’.

Will our Gaulish friends resist the lure of easy money and Roman comforts? Will their village become a simple tourist attraction? Asterix and Obelix are going to do all they can to thwart Caesar’s plans.

Streetdance Family review – from Barking to the world championships

26 May 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This heartening dance-contest doc follows U-16 crew Entity to the big leagues, but shakes up the formula with an element of surprise

Not strictly affiliated to the established British franchise, this cheery documentary nevertheless rotates in similar circles, tracking U-16 dance crew Entity from their Barking clubhouse to the world championships in Bochum. Directors Debbie Shuter and Adam Tysoe shake up the usual contest-doc choreography by remaining open to the element of surprise. While the kids bust spectacular moves, the mums get tiddly on the sidelines, and the UK’s streetdance ambassador is revealed as a greying Greg Davies-alike named Derek. Objectivity is soon abandoned – the film-makers’ son Ethan is in this troupe, so on-screen graphics deploy the first-person plural – yet that’s a small sacrifice set against the heartening community spirit evoked either side of the camera: here are people working against the odds, with presumably limited resources, »

Please Enjoy This Video of Ryan Gosling Giggling Uncontrollably

23 May 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Ryan Gosling stopped by The Graham Norton Show last week to promote his new film with Russell Crowe, The Nice Guys, and to the surprise of no one, he ended up being his ridiculously charming self. While fellow guest Greg Davies told a hilarious story about an unfortunate incident he had at a school for hearing-impaired children, Ryan giggled uncontrollably while sitting next to him. Greg's story of getting drunk, eating Indian food, and unknowingly wearing his mother's underwear was just too much for Ryan to handle as he hid his face in his hand. Watch him lose it in the video above, then check out the dad of two talk about outings with daughter Esmeralda. »
