The Cobbler review: “Average, though very entertaining…”

21 hours ago

The Cobbler review: The latest Adam Sandler comedy is run-of-the-mill stuff, but there’s a lot of fun to have in there too. The Cobbler review

The Cobbler is one of those movies which was released in its domestic territory back last year, received relatively poor to mediocre reviews, and thus is getting a fairly low-profile international roll-out, which is a shame really, as there’s a lot of fun to be with Adam Sandler‘s latest comedy.

The film revolves around Sandler’s cobbler Max Simkin, a bored, single Jewish guy working on New York’s lower East Side in the family’s small business. When Max stumbles upon a magical family heirloom – a stitching machine which allows him to transform to look and appear like the owner of any pair of shoes he straps on – his life changes forever.

Hot Pursuit review: “Formulaic, unfunny dross…”

22 hours ago

Sophia Vergara and Reece Witherspoon in Hot Pursuit

Reese Witherspoon. An Academy-Award winner. Sophia Vergara. A Golden Globe winner. Hot Pursuit, the new comedy starring said award-winners; an absolute disaster.

The trailers for this new comedy from Warner Brothers did promised big things, and I giggled all of the way through each one of them, but I didn’t once laughduring Hot Pursuit.

The plot of Hot Pursuit is simple. Reese Witherspoon is a disgraced policewoman working the evidence room at her local precinct, who, following a few years being punished in the bowels of a San Antonio police department following a botched arrest, is given a shot at the bigger time by escorting Sophia Vergara’s crime witness across state to Dallas. As you may expect, things don’t go according to plan, and much hilarity ensues. Or so you’d hope from this mid-budgeted comedy fare from seasoned comedy helmer Anne Fletcher, »

Suite Française Blu-ray Review

28 July 2015 2:55 PM, PDT

Director: Saul Dibb

Starring: Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenarts, Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Riley, Ruth Wilson and Margot Robbie

Certificate: 15

Special Features: The Cast / Production Design / The Book / The Story / The Look

Based on the bestselling novel written in secret by Irène Némirovsky in 1941, but only discovered fully 50 years later after being kept by her daughter, Suite Francaise is a moving tale of the struggles people faced during the German occupation in France and the huge risks some took in the name of others survival.

What’s particularly unique about this story is the authenticity of literally being written during World War II. This compelling re-telling on the small screen really brings forward the heart of the people within it. Nemirovsky’s words were originally believed to be an every day journal but what they actually reveal is a genuine insight into the domestic lives of regular people at the »

Infographic: ‘Devil Inside’ is most profitable film of last 5 years

28 July 2015 5:50 AM, PDT

I’ve just stumbled across this interesting new infographic over at the image sharing website Imgur, which details the films that have delivered the biggest return on investment over the last five years. The only minimum requirement for inclusion was total box office takings of $30 million worldwide.

There are some interesting things to come out of this little bit of research. Here’s how they calculated the numbers.

Return On Investment was calculated as [0.5 * International Revenue / Production Budget – 1] This is an approximate measure of a movies return on investment only as many other factors come in to play when determining a films actual Roi.

Okay, so as you can see the really interesting this is that The Devil Inside is clearly the film with the biggest return on investment at 5000%. The 2012 film cost a reported $1,000,000 to make (not including marketing and other costs) and took a huge $53,000,000 at the domestic box-office three years ago »

Linklater to direct The Rosie Project with Jennifer Lawrence?

28 July 2015 4:48 AM, PDT

Deadline are reporting that Boyhood director Richard Linklater is in early talks to helm The Rosie Project with Jennifer Lawrence in the lead role.

The film “focuses on a genetics professor with limited social skills who thinks he has conjured a scientific survey to find a perfect mate. That goes awry when he meets Rosie (Lawrence), a mismatched woman who becomes irresistible to him.”

The film is based on Graeme Simsion’s novel of the same name, which originally had The Lego Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller attached to direct. They’ve now found another project, so they’ve left the film, but Linklater is an exciting prospect.

The Rosie Project script is being written (500) Days Of Summer‘s Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber. Another exciting aspect.

Sony Pictures are financing and distributing.
