Ben Affleck has admitted that ‘Daredevil’ “didn’t work”, but insists his second stint as a superhero in ‘Batman v Superman’ will be better. Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck regrets starring in ‘Daredevil‘.

The 42-year-old actor has admitted the 2003 superhero movie – in which he stars as a blind man whose other four senses are superhuman – “didn’t work”.

Ben said: “‘Daredevil’ didn’t work, at all. If I wanted to go viral I would be less polite. That was before people realized you could make these movies and make them well. There was a cynical sense of ‘Put a red leather outfit on a guy, have him run around, hunt some bad guys, and cash the check.’ “

Daredevil‘ hasn’t put Ben off of playing superheroes however, as he’s about to star as Batman in ‘Batman v Superman’, and promises his second run will be better.

Terminator Genisys review: “As average as you’ve been expecting’

1 July 2015 1:47 PM, PDT

Terminator Genisys review: Come with me if you want to see a really average movie. The very average fifth film in the series fails to live up to expectations. Terminator Genisys review

Six years on from the mess that was Terminator Salvation comes the fifth movie in the franchise, Terminator Genisys, the film that sees Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to one of his most iconic roles. ‘Genisys’ kicks off with a voice over from the future, and Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese.

When the human resistance come upon a time machine, they must send Reese back to 1984 to protect Connor’s mother Sarah (Emilia Clarke) from a vicious Terminator, the classic T-800 from the original movie, which of course is played by Arnold.

Magic Mike Xxl review: “The feel good movie of the summer”

1 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT

Magic Mike Xxl review: Feels like a lighter version of the first movie – dumbed down but pumped up to the max, which might make it the best comedy of the summer so far. Magic Mike Xxl review

It’s a muggy Monday evening in a Leicester Square cinema and I’m sat three rows back in a recently refurbished Empire. Tonight’s screening is running late, unusually by around twenty minutes or so. Thinking something is technically wrong with the screening gear, we fear the worst, but a few moments later Channing Tatum enters the auditorium with a few buddies and a massive entourage, and the packed audience erupts. Just a few feet away from the man himself I find myself, a happily marred man in his late thirties, screaming the handsome one’s name with what seems to be an audience made up of 80 percent women. Welcome to the world of Magic Mike Xxl, »

Costner & the Cold War: Thn meets ‘The Man Who Saved The World’ director Peter Anthony

30 June 2015 11:23 PM, PDT

The Man Who Saved The World is out to buy this week. An unusual but rewarding true life story of epic magnitude, it takes us back to the era of the Cold War, focusing on Stanislav Petrov, a retired Russian Colonel who was the only thing that stood between the world and nuclear war one fateful night in 1983.

A mix of real life documentary and affecting drama, the film also boasts an array of celebrity cameos, from Kevin Costner to Robert De Niro. Chronicling this journey was Danish writer/director Peter Anthony. We caught up with him for a revealing insight into the making of this ambitious and much-lauded project…

Thn: I found the film very interesting, in that rather than being a straightforward documentary it’s more a drama with documentary elements. Having Mr Petrov as the lead was an unusual move, but a good one. What led you »

The Man Who Saved The World DVD Review

30 June 2015 11:20 PM, PDT

Director: Peter Anthony

Starring: Stanislav Petrov, Sergey Shnyryov, Nataliya Vdovina, Kevin Costner and featuring Robert De Niro, Matt Damon, Ashton Kutcher and Walter Cronkite

Special Features: None

The mentality of Cold War and the threat of nuclear conflict may seem like yesterday’s menace, but writer/director Peter Anthony wants to show us they’re still here in The Man Who Saved The World.

Telling a remarkable true story, the film is best described as a drama with documentary elements, following Russian Stanislav Petrov (playing himself), who travels to America in order to be honoured at the Un. Why this is happening gradually becomes clear, as we learn of Petrov’s role as the title “character”. A former Lieutenant Colonel in the Soviet military, his high-stakes decision in interpreting computer data from a perceived Us nuclear strike led to his averting a catastrophic encounter between the two superpowers in the 1980s. »

The Ultimate Gangster Collection: Casino Edition

30 June 2015 1:12 PM, PDT

The quality of the features offered in this selection lends well to the nature of the ultimate characterization. The films included in this selection are American Gangster, Scarface, Casino, Carlito’s Way, and Mean StreetsRidley Scott’s American Gangster may be an enjoyable romp, but it has tendencies of staggering under the weight of the film’s own perceived epic stature. The other four films, however, are bona fide classics, making this selection of movies an excellent primer for some of the best gangster movies ever committed to film.

American Gangster

In American Gangster, the real-life character Frank Lucas starts out as a quiet driver for his boss, but exploits an opening in the power structure when his boss dies to build his own empire, creating his own version of the American Dream.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Musical review

30 June 2015 12:58 AM, PDT

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The Musical theatre review

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has just celebrated its second birthday at the prestigious Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in the heart of London’s West End – and the show still continues to thrill and impress as it transports you back to the world of Roald Dahl that we all knew as a child. The evening is full of chocolaty magical enchantment with its theatrical, magical, sanguine, new Willy Wonka, brilliantly portrayed by the flamboyant Jonathan Slinger.

As the show begins you visit the world of Charlie Bucket, who in our performance, was excellently played by Zachary Loonie. Charlie’s life is rather grey and miserable despite the love of his parents – Mr and Mrs Bucket (Derek Hagen and Lara Denning). The song ‘If Your Mother Was Here’ is beautiful but lacks the heart to make it compulsive. The grandparents appear decrepit »

Exclusive: ‘Saw’ actor Costas Mandylor open to franchise return

29 June 2015 4:15 PM, PDT

Saw actor Costas Mandylor has exclusively revealed to Thn that he’s open to coming back for a future movie. Costas Mandylor at Collectormania 23. Photo Credit: Neil Hughes

Saw was one of the infamous films that pioneered what has now come to be known as ‘torture porn’. Arriving in 2004 the film had two strangers awaken in a grotty bathroom, each shackled to a pipe. Their only way out was to saw through their ankles with a rusty, and rather flimsy hacksaw blade. The pair were part of a ‘trap’ devised by a deviant new serial killer who wasn’t really a serial killer. Sounds confusing I know, but Jigsaw, aka John Kramer, believed that confronting people with their morality and their indiscretions at the same time made them appreciate life more if they lived. Granted, despite his vision, most subjects ended up dead rather than alive and appreciative.

The series ran for seven films, »
