Cinemax Picks Up War Drama Signal

13 June 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cinemax will head to the Middle East for its next original action-drama, titled Signal. Hailing from Ben Younger, the writer-director of Boiler Room and Prime, the series is apparently based on true events and will draw inspiration from the top-secret world of military contracting during the Iraq/Afghanistan war.

The series, which Younger will script and executive produce, centers on a young man who “launches a propaganda business in the Middle East and gets rich on the back of millions of dollars of Us Government contract.”

If Younger’s comments to THR about Signal are any indication, it will mark an intellectual high-water mark for the premium network once known as Skinemax:

“What drew me to this story was the opportunity to look at a decade-long conflict this country was knee deep in, from a totally unique perspective. From the specific perspective of a few people who were there, both on the ground in Baghdad, »

Assault On Wall Street DVD Review

14 May 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director:  Uwe Boll

Starring:  Dominic Purcell, Erin Karpluk, Edward Furlong, John Heard, Eric Roberts, Keith David, Michael Pare

Running Time:  99 mins

Certificate:  18

Corporate America has long been the root of evil in the world of movies. From Rollerball (1975) to The Dark Knight Rises (2012), capitalism has been calculating and faceless, though these portraits are generally painted in broad strokes. When it comes to specific financial woes the Us offers gentler fare like The Company Men (2010), where Ben Affleck and co pondered the meaning of unemployment.

It surprised me that a film like Assault On Wall Street, with its poster image of a chiselled avenger marching through the money district carrying a big gun, hadn’t been made before. Several years have elapsed since the misdeeds of traders came to light and the public’s frustration towards smug gits in suits has far from abated… surely viewers are owed a hard-boiled tale »

Aaron Eckhart Wants To Bleed For This

3 February 2014 12:34 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

His latest film – I, Frankenstein – took something of a beating from both critics and the box office results, but perhaps that's just helping Aaron Eckhart get in some early training for a future project, signing onto a boxing biopic called Bleed For This that will also star Miles Teller.With Boiler Room writer-director Ben Younger once more scripting and calling the shots, Bleed For This will chart the real-life story of slugger Vinnie Pazienza, who broke his neck in three places in a traffic accident in 1991 while he was at the peak of his career. Against doctors’ orders, Pazienza returned to the gym with his neck still encased in a metal halo, began working out and eventually won three more titles and went on to retire with a 50-10 record. The film boasts Martin Scorsese – no stranger himself to boxing biopics – as executive producer.Despite his fondness for roles where he gets physical, »

Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart Join Boxing Flick 'Bleed for This'

3 February 2014 9:49 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Miles Teller is attached to a film that is being sold in Berlin that veers close to his own experience. In true story "Bleed for This," to be written and directed by "Boiler Room"'s Ben Younger and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Teller would play young boxer Vinny Panzienza, who has to recover from a terrible automobile accident. He is told he will never walk again, but fights his way back into the ring a year later with the help of trainer Kevin Rooney (Aaron Eckhart). As a teenager Teller was thrown out of a moving car and was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries; he still wears the scars on his face. (See my "Whiplash" interview here.)  Teller, who is on a roll, with back-to-back Sundance hits "Spectacular Now" and "Whiplash" and "Divergent" coming up, worked with Eckhart on 2010 drama "Rabbit Hole," Teller's first feature.

The Wolf of Wall Street – review | Mark Kermode

18 January 2014 5:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

An unlovable central character is just the main flaw in a slick but wearying saga of a stockbroker's quest for riches

In 1929 the New York Times's "motion picture critic" Mordaunt Hall opined: "The Wolf of Wall Street is a talking feature that causes one to sigh… This yarn is not materially different from other Wall Street tales that have come to the screen. Money there is, also madness, women and swindling... Such a state of affairs. Oh dear, O, dear!"

There's no direct connection between Rowland V Lee's black-and-white drama and Martin Scorsese's black comedy (a very broad term) with which it shares its name. Yet watching the familiar elements (money, madness, women, swindling etc) I felt a certain empathy with Hall's sniffy reaction to the movie he saw "decorating the Rialto screen" all those years ago. Based on the self-aggrandising memoirs of convicted stock market trader Jordan Belfort, »

The Wolf of Wall Street review: legitimate businessman

17 January 2014 8:41 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A debauched end-of-empire horror story disguised as an outrageous comedy, with remarkable performances from Leonard DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. I’m “biast” (pro): love Scorsese and DiCaprio

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s a few things I don’t quite get about the chatter around The Wolf of Wall Street. I would never have noticed that it’s now the F-bomb champ of cinema history if that hadn’t become a thing, because it doesn’t seem any more sweary than any other Martin Scorsese movie. (I do wonder about the sort of person who would decide to count the naughty words in a movie.) Probably it’s no more dense with profanity than any other Scorsese flick, but with a director’s-best length — one minute under three hours — the same »

The Wolf of Wall Street – review | Peter Bradshaw

16 January 2014 5:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It's not subtle, but Martin Scorsese's depiction of the debauched rise and fall of a wayward Wall Street broker is an exhilarating riot of bad taste

If you can imagine the honey-gravel of Ray Liotta's voice in Goodfellas saying: "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a stockbroker" you'll get some idea of Martin Scorsese's new movie The Wolf of Wall Street. It's a raucous, crazily energised, if occasionally slightly shallow epic on a familiar subject, conducted in the classic voiceover-nostalgia style with sugar-rush jukebox slams on the soundtrack. I've watched it twice in quick succession now, and though it skirts the edge of cliche, the sheer sustained blitz of bad taste is spectacular. This movie sprints frantically, in the direction of nowhere in particular, like our appalling hero after his first ecstatic toke of crack cocaine. It is based on the »

Agents of Shield, Season 1, Episode 12, “Seeds”: Xavier’s School For Gifted-Oh, Wait

14 January 2014 10:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Agents of Shield, Season 1, Episode 12, “Seeds”

Written by Monica Owusu-Breen and Jed Whedon

Directed by Ken Fink

Agents of Shield has struggled in its first season to find its voice as a stand-alone TV show and its identity within the larger Marvel universe. One possible reason is that the show hasn’t developed a formula. “Seeds” does not change this, but while it does not develop a formula unique to Agents of Shield, it does borrow an episodic formula familiar to fans of The X-Files or Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Fitz and Simmons return to Shield Academy after an accident involving technology that they developed while studying at the academy. A student has built a device capable of freezing water in the air, which could be weaponized to freeze enemies to death or create massive weather storms. Donnie, a highly intelligent and socially awkward freshman, is under suspicion for being behind the accident, »

Brian Gallagher's Top 10 Movies of 2013

1 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that my Overrated and Underrated picks have been released (which many of you have strong opinions about), it's time for me to unveil my 10 favorite films of the year. As I have said before, 2013 has been an incredible year at the movies, with fantastic big-budget blockbusters (Iron Man 3 and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), superb drams (Philomena, Mud), comedies (The Way, Way Back, Drinking Buddies) and everything in between (Spring Breakers). As much as I loved all of those films mentioned above, you will not find them on my Top 10, which can only mean that the quality of movies released this year was rather special, since superb cinematic experiences like these didn't make the cut. Of course, I didn't see Every movie released in 2013 (clickHere to check out every movie I saw this year), but this list represents the films that blew me away, in more ways than one. »
