Miss Sloane Review

8 May 2017 10:42 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Ah, the courtroom drama – a perennially absorbing sub-genre, with endeavours illuminating the screen from as far as back as 12 Angry Men and To Kill a Mockingbird, to the likes of Harrison Ford’s Witness, or Primal Fear, and even Liar Liar. John Madden’s Miss Sloane thrives in this very capacity, and is structured intelligently, as we begin in court, to then proceed into flashbacks as the viewer pieces this tale together, and understand how the eponymous protagonist found herself in this perilous situation – only to then catch up with ourselves for the grand finale.

Jessica Chastain is the formidable Elizabeth Sloane, who finds herself in court over a seemingly trivial matter, transpiring to be a mere diversion tactic, as the ruthless, influential lobbyist seems to gaining some headway in her battle to successfully bring a new legislation through Congress to ensure there are background checks on gun-owners. »

I Wonder What It’s Like to be Lukas Haas

7 March 2017 12:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

So I was watching the movie Alpha Dog the other day and you might remember that Lukas Haas has a small part in it towards the end.  And then I started thinking about Lukas Haas’s career.  This is a guy who’s essentially been in Hollywood his entire life.  If you’ll recall he was the little kid in Witness which was made in 1985.  Amazingly this wasn’t even his first role.   He had 4 acting credits before that dating back to 1983 when he was in a movie Testament at the age of 7.    It’s widely noted that Lukas was discovered

‘The Red Turtle’ Director Michaël Dudok de Wit’s 10 Favorite Films

16 February 2017 11:30 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If one is looking to experience a dose of astonishing beauty, now in theaters in the Oscar-nominated animation The Red Turtle. A co-production with Studio Ghibli, Michaël Dudok de Wit’s first feature-length film is a humble, patient drama with an emotionally rich finale. To celebrate its theatrical release here in the U.S., we’re highlighting the director’s all-time favorite films, which he submitted to BFI‘s latest Sight & Sound poll. Featuring classics from Kubrick, Cimino, Kurosawa, and more, on the animation side, he makes sure to recognize a Miyazaki masterwork, along with a seminal Disney film.

“Just before the team arrived, Studio Ghibli called me and said, ‘We’ve been thinking about the list of words that are supposed to be spoken in the film and we think you should drop the dialogue entirely,'” the director told us, speaking about the production process of his film. »

Stargate Sg-1: 10 great guest performances

26 January 2017 12:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Juliette Harrisson Jan 31, 2017

We salute 10 memorable guest roles on Stargate Sg-1, featuring Seth, The Keeper and more...

As with our previous features, this is a list designed to celebrate the very best performances by guest actors in Stargate Sg-1. However, we did come across a couple of challenges in compiling the list for this particular series. We’ve defined ‘guest performance’ as an actor playing a character who is not a regular or recurring character – so the actor must have played the character no more than twice in this particular series (though they may have appeared more often in other branches of the franchise). Stargate Sg-1 liked to re-use its best guest characters as often as possible, frequently bringing back characters like Claudia Black’s Vala Mal Doran after what was initially a one-off appearance, which is great as the audience get to enjoy them again, but seriously reduces the number of eligible performances. »

‘Captain Fantastic’ and Viggo Mortensen’s Message of Hope Is Increasingly Important

6 January 2017 11:04 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every year, audiences discover films that they like or dislike, but they only embrace a handful of movies on a personal level, as if the filmmakers created the work especially for them. One of those is Bleecker Street’s “Captain Fantastic.”

Star Viggo Mortensen was honored this week at Variety’s Creative Impact Awards in Palm Springs. In his intro, chief film critic Peter Debruge hailed “Captain Fantastic” as “the performance of his career.” Debruge is right, but the film is not just a one-man show, as evidenced by the Cannes award for writer-director Matt Ross, and the SAG Award nomination for best ensemble (added to Mortensen’s own SAG nom).

Mortensen told Variety that audience members’ reactions have often been “fiercely personal,” because Ross has created people whose virtues and flaws are rarely depicted in movies. “The characters are so well written. They’re human and complex, which should be true of any script, »
