Top Ten Most Disappointing Movies of 2014

31 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Wait! Just hold on a second... Before you rush off to the list and then the comments to get mad at me for the placement of these movies and "How dare you!" etc, etc... Remember, these are movies I consider disappointments for one reason or another, reasoning I set out to explain with each entry. Most often this has to do with expectations, whether it be because of the director, screenwriters, star, subject matter, what have you... This is never a fair position for a movie to be placed in, but it's the fact of the matter and I think this is a list far more interesting than the "Worst Movies of 2014" and, in some ways, perhaps even my "Top Ten Movies of 2014". With that out of the way, let's scroll through the ten films I consider to be the most disappointing of the year, six of which were on »

Chris Pine On Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit: ‘I Don’t Think It Made Enough Money’

29 December 2014 2:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Chris Pine seems to be a refreshingly candid interviewee – as demonstrated in a recent conversation with Moviefone while promoting Into The Woods, during which he responded to a question about changes from the source material with “I just don’t care enough.” With that in mind, his comments about his future within the Jack Ryan movie franchise are telling indeed. When asked about plans for a sequel, Pine pulled no punches.

“No. I don’t think it made enough money for that to happen. That’s one of my deep regrets – that we didn’t totally get that right. It’s a great franchise and if it’s not me then I hope it gets a fifth life at this point. It’s just great. I love the spy genre. I hope it’s done again and with a great story.”

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit was released in January 2014, and »

Chris Pine Deeply Regrets Not Getting ‘Jack Ryan’ Right

27 December 2014 1:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chris Pine doesn’t think Paramount will be releasing a sequel to “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” any time soon.

The titular star of the rejuvenated franchise told Moviefone that the film’s low box office turnout has likely killed its future.

“No, I don’t think it made enough money for that to happen,” Pine said when asked if there have been talks of further “Jack Ryan” adventures. “That’s one of my deep regrets, that we didn’t totally get that right. It’s a great franchise, and if it’s not me, then I hope it gets a fifth life at this point. It’s just great. I love the spy genre. I hope it’s done again and with a great story.”

The spy thriller earned $50.6 million in the U.S. — not even matching its already-low $60 million production budget — and a worldwide take of $135.5 million.

'Jack Ryan' Sequel Not Likely to Happen Says Chris Pine

27 December 2014 8:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Chris Pine's career has been hit or miss. Though he's found great success playing Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek, relaunching the franchise with a series of new sci-fi adventures that reimagine that entire universe, he was unable to reboot Jack Ryan as a viable film series. Released in early 2014, it only earned $50.5 million domestically off a $60 million budget. Its not one of the biggest bombs of the year, as it recouped globally, bringing in a worldwide total of $135.5 million. But there just wasn't enough interest in this version of the espionage thriller. And it disappeared quite quickly and quietly. While it made money overseas, Chris Pine doesn't think a sequel will happen. And he holds it as one of his biggest regrets.

Speaking with MovieFone, Chris Pine looks back at the movie with an open mind about what went wrong. Based on the popular Tom Clancy novels, »

Chris Pine Has Regrets Over "Jack Ryan"

25 December 2014 5:44 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Rejuvenating an ageing franchise by rebooting it with a younger, sexier, less experienced take on the character has become a familiar sight in recent times. Yet it doesn't always work.

A good case is the Jack Ryan franchise, a series which was known for being more a "thinking's man thriller" with a generally older male lead. Paramount have twice tried to reboot it with a younger and more action-oriented version of the character and a storyline that shifted away from the Tom Clancy books. The Ben Affleck-led first one scored so-so notices and box-office, the more recent one though was an outright flop with critics and audiences.

In an interview with Moviefone, the recent reboot's star Chris Pine admits "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" just did not work and he doesn't expect to reprise the role in further films:

"No. I don't think it made enough money for that to happen. »

Chris Pine says Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is one of his deep regrets

24 December 2014 5:31 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit was one of the biggest disappointments of the year. It premiered way back in January, so most folks have already forgotten about it but one person who it has stuck with is star Chris Pine. Pine was the fourth actor to take on the Jack Ryan character after Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger) and Ben Affleck (The Sum Of All Fears). While Affleck's was set as a prequel of sorts to the Ford films, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit was a fully new take on »

Win ‘The Angriest Man In Brooklyn’ On DVD!

3 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The late, great Robin Williams makes one of his final on-screen appearances amongst a star-studded cast in the hard-hitting comedy-drama The Angriest Man In Brooklyn, released on DVD and digital platforms on September 8th, 2014 courtesy of Signature Entertainment and we’ve got three to giveaway on DVD!

Directed by Phil Alden Robinson (The Sum of All Fears, Band of Brothers), The Angriest Man In Brooklyn sees Williams playing Henry Altmann, a curmudgeonly Brooklynite who, following a taxi crash, a brain scan and a stressed out doctor, mistakenly thinks he has just 90 minutes to live. What follows is a poignant, astonishingly portentous journey of redemption as Altmann races to reconcile with his wife, his brother and his friends after a lifetime of maltreatment and before it is too late.

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – September 1st 2014

1 September 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Believe it or not, films and television programmes added to Netflix and Amazon do have a tendency to expire and no longer be there after a while; this isn’t as publicised as when the titles in question are added though. So by the time you read this there are around 50 titles disappearing from Netflix.

If you have ever wanted to watch the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo then you have probably missed your chance by now. What this does mean however is that probably next week Netflix will have added a whole raft of new stuff, I say new but it will probably be a mixture of catalogue and stuff from the last year. I know that the underrated Enders Game and the superior Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due there in September, I just don’t know when.

Robin Williams and Mila Kunis in The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Robin Williams (Old Dogs) has a bad day—a helluva bad day—in the comedy drama The Angriest Man In Brooklyn.

Williams plays overly bitter man Henry Altmann, whose anger really kicks into gear when he learns from a doctor (Mila Kunis, Ted) that he has a brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. This news kicks the curmudgeonly Altman into motion, and he sets out to reconcile with his wife, brother and friends in the short time he believes he has left.

Co-starring Peter Dinklage (TV’s Game of Thrones) and Melissa Leo (Flight) and directed by Phil Alden Robinson (who hasn’t helmed a film since 2002’s The Sum of All Fears), the R-rated Angriest Man In Brooklyn opened to lot of negative reviews upon it limited theatrical rollout in May. »

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn | Review

Prognosis Negative: Robinson’s Return a Detached, Tepid Exercise

His first outing since the ill-fated 2002 film The Sum of All Fears, director Phil Alden Robinson’s latest, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, is a remake of a 1997 Israeli film, The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum, which happened to be part of a trilogy directed by Assi Dayan. At first appearing to be a black comedy about miserable, self-pitying human beings, a not-so-subtle message about the importance of family, enjoying one’s time and appreciating the preciousness of life, eventually cascades over the slim narrative, rendering any emotional or comedic potency to absolute zero. With a running time of about 80 minutes, this treatment still feels padded with moments that feel utterly useless because they’re not fully developed or simply used as a matter of convenience.

Henry Altmann (Robin Williams) is an unhappy man. Home life seems particularly dire, unable to have »

Film Review: ‘The Angriest Man in Brooklyn’

30 May 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s movie night, and you can choose between crazy-shouty Robin Williams (think “The Fisher King”) and blubbering feel-good Robin Williams (like the one who discovers his son, dead from autoerotic asphyxiation, in “World’s Greatest Dad”). Which would you prefer? Trick question! In “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn,” you can have it both ways, as Williams plays the human equivalent of a bulging forehead vein who learns he has 90 minutes to live and spends the rest of the movie making amends, like Ebenezer Scrooge at the end of “A Christmas Carol.” Most auds will prefer have no Robin Williams at all.

Inspired by the 1997 Israeli movie “The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum,” in which actor-director Assi Dayan tried to imagine how the worst possible news could possibly bring out the best in someone, this schmaltzy remake from “Field of Dreams” helmer Phil Alden Robinson (directing his first film since 2002′s »

Ebiri on The Angriest Man in Brooklyn: Robin Williams Doesn’t Sell the Superlative

23 May 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Phil Alden Robinson, who once gave us Sneakers and Field of Dreams (which could have been titled The Nicest Man in Iowa), has not directed a movie since the so-so 2002 studio flick The Sum of All Fears. (Remember that old attempt to turn Ben Affleck into a franchise hero?) So it’s a bit odd to see him now going the indie route with The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, even if it’s with an all-star cast. The film stars Robin Williams as, well, a really angry man whose fury at the world is compounded and complicated when he finds out he’s dying. On paper, it’s an interesting conceit. Williams has been looking to rediscover his “edge” for some years now, so at times the film reads like an attempt to fuse the actor’s darker persona with the cuddly-wuddly side that once churned out insufferable hits like Patch Adams. »

‘The Angriest Man in Brooklyn’ Trailer Gives Robin Williams a Dying Shot at Being Nice

4 April 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

You know that old saying “live each day as if it were your last”? While it’s supposed to be inspirational and designed to get you up off your butt and out into the world doing great things like traveling and confessing your love to your best friend, there’s also the view that it could be a terrifying and wholly negative statement. Living each day like it’s your last? That means you’re dying tomorrow. There’s so much you didn’t do! The Angriest Man in Brooklyn takes this concept and amplifies it times 100 by giving America’s wacky uncle Robin Williams only 90 minutes to live. What’s a guy to do when he’s only got an hour and a half to do everything he has left to get done? The trailer for the film attempts to explain how Williams is going to attempt such a feat, and »

Phil Alden Robinson ("Field of Dreams," "Sneakers") returns to the director's chair over a decade since his last film, "The Sum of All Fears," to helm something quite different - a real-time high-concept comedy starring Robin Williams as a manic jerk.

The premise has Williams playing a man so obnoxious that his doctor (Mila Kunis) snaps and tells him he has only 90 minutes left to live. Thus he begins a mad scramble to set things right with family and friends before his time is up.
