Yes Man (Peyton Reed, 2008)

10am, 8pm, Sky Movies Premiere

Remember Jim Carrey in Liar, Liar, where he forces himself to tell the truth for 24 hours? Well, here Jim Carrey forces himself to answer yes to any request, for a year. Which is upping the ante somewhat, but doesn't make it a better film. This is a return to the manic, gurning, not-very-funny Carrey, as if The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine etc hadn't happened. Just say no.

The Golden Compass (Chris Weitz, 2007)

11.40am, 8pm, Sky Movies Family

[DVD Review] London to Brighton

13 August 2009 10:00 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

For as riotously entertaining as both Lock, Stock and Snatch were, Guy Ritchie has a lot to answer for. As international audiences were largely spared the brunt of the misery by a lack of international distribution, most Americans will never know the excruciating pain that even a single viewing of such piss poor clones the likes of Rancid Aluminum, The 51st State, and Love, Honor, and Obey can inflict. Thankfully these last few years have seen something of a moratorium on wearily hip tales  of cock-er-ney wideboys and their harebrained, desperately ironic escapades, and with it a welcome return to the kind of arresting, gritty, and disgustingly grubby crime dramas Britain used to be very good at.

With that in mind we come to director Paul Andrew Williams's 2006 study of urban sickness London to Brighton, a grimy shoestring tale of an on-the-run prostitute, her underage ward and a perusing »

The Résumé Indie

11 August 2009 7:35 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

Mostly, what Paul Andrew Williams' "London to Brighton" (2006) has in its threadbare arsenal, shy of budget and time and scale, is a small propane tank of hot nerve. This is the kind of indie that opens in mid-adrenaline-spike (two women, bloody and beaten, burst into a public restroom, running for their lives) and proceeds to paint a sparse portrait of modern life that slowly constricts on the two protagonists like a fatal case of lockjaw.

It's an exercise in economy and efficiency, of course -- Williams' "London" is one of the most memorable résumé films of recent years, but it's still a résumé movie. If you want to send up flags about your ability to glue your audience's eyes to the screen, this is one way to do it. (Much to the disappointment of British critics, who loved "London to Brighton," Williams has since been spinning his wheels in psycho-killer genre ditties. »

DVD Playhouse—August 2009

By

Allen Gardner

Watchmen—Director’S Cut (Warner Bros.) Director Zack Snyder’s film of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ landmark graphic novel is as worthy an adaptation of a great book that has ever been filmed. In an alternative version of the year 1985, Richard Nixon is serving his third term as President and super heroes have been outlawed by a congressional act, in spite of the fact that two of the most high-profile “masks,” Dr. Manhattan (Billy Cruddup) and The Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) helped the U.S. win the Vietnam War. When The Comedian is found murdered, many former heroes become concerned that a conspiracy is afoot to assassinate retired costumed crime fighters. Former masks Nite Owl (Patrick Wilson), Silk Spectre (Malin Akerman) and still-operating Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley, in an Oscar-worthy turn) launch an investigation of their own, all while the Pentagon’s “Doomsday »

"Shabana plays an Indian woman who has been in Britain for 45 years" - Gurinder Chadha

13 May 2009 3:48 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Gurinder Chadha speaks to Subhash K Jha about her next film It's A Wonderful Afterlife. Tell us about your new film. Frank Capra's It's A Wonderful Life is one of my favourite films. It's A Wonderful Afterlife takes me back to the Bend It Like Beckham territory. Sanjeev Bhaskar and Shaheen Khan are there. I've actors from Beckham back in my new film. It's that kind of film. It takes me back to my Punjabi roots, very West London. What would be an interesting challenge for my leading lady Shabana Azmi is that, for the first time, she plays British Indian. We haven't seen her do a British film. Shabana will be playing an Indian woman who has been living in Britain for the last 45 years. She's never done that before. Besides, I've a completely different take on being British Indian from what Indians perceive. My film is going to be the quintessential British comedy. »
