Revenge For Jolly! Blu-ray Review

13 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Chadd Harbold

Starring: Brian Petsos, Oscar Isaac, Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig, Adam Brody, Ryan Phillipe, Garret Dillahunt, Kevin Corrigan, Gillian Jacobs

Running Time: 84 minutes

Certificate: 18

If blockbusters have taught us one thing it’s that the dog has to survive. Classic interpretations of the law have been found in such genre classics as Volcanoe and Independence Dance. Therefore it makes sense to build a revenge thriller around the murder of a dog, as every viewer will be able to root for the hero of the film. At least, that’s how it should be. If Revenge For Jolly! teaches us one thing, it’s that a surprisingly horrific act can result in absolutely no feeling and absolutely no involvement in a star-filled but messy and empty dark comedy. That’s a self-labelled ‘dark comedy’ by the way, as the humour seems to be non-existent.

Blu-ray Review: 'Ealing Studios Collection: Vol. 1'

8 April 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★Collated for the first time on Blu-ray are three films from Britain's Ealing Studios, each starring its most renowned star, Alec Guinness. In Kind Hearts and Coronets' (1949), lowly sales assistant Louis Mazzini (Dennis Price) reeks terrible revenge on his mother's aristocratic relations the D'Ascoyne family (all played by Guinness), whilst The Lavender Hill Mob (1951) tells the story of Henry Holland (Guinness) an unassuming clerk at the Bank of England who plots to relieve his bosses of a small fortune. Finally in The Man in the White Suit (1951) humble inventor Henry Stratton (Guinness) creates a fibre which never gets dirty or wears out.

Curio: The Storied Career of Alec Guinness

2 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Alexa here to wish a Happy Centennial to Alec Guinness. Born 100 years ago today to a single mother in London, Guinness' theatre career began in his 20s. It wasn't until after he served in the Royal Navy in World War II that his film career began in earnest, and soon he was playing eight roles in one movie (Kind Hearts and Coronets).  One of his six famously tempestuous collaborations with David Lean, The Bridge on the River Kwai, got him his Oscar for Best Actor, although he was nominated four other times (even for Best Screenplay) and he received an honorary Oscar in 1980. The geeks know him as Obi-Wan, but for me he will forever be Professor Marcus from The Ladykillers (a little obsession of mine).

Here are some vintage curios to celebrate his career in film

The Ealing Studios Collection Vol. 1 Blu-ray Review

28 March 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directors: Robert Hamer, Charles Crichton, Alexander Mackendrick

Starring: Alec Guinness, Dennis Price, Stanley Holloway, Joan Greenwood, Valerie Hobson, Sid James, Alfie Bass, Cecil Parker, Michael Gough

Running Time: 272 Minutes

Certificate: U

Ealing comedies are so wonderful aren’t they? Transporting us back to post-war Britain at a time when it seemed much easier to mix darkness and comedy. This collection of three films, each starring Alec Guinness (one of which stars him 8 times), is a reminder of the incredible talent and unique tone that British films once possessed. Not only does each film deliver the laughs and the more sinister plotlines, but they also make interesting observations on society.

Kind Hearts And Coronets sees a man kill his way through his estranged family in order to inherit the family title and see his mother buried in the family graveyard. Dennis Price takes the lead as the sociopathic and righteous Louis »
