Brother to Brother: O’Connor’s Rudimentary Look at Familial Ravages in WWII

His first film since that ill-advised 2001 remake of Sweet November, which sought to rekindle interest in possible on-screen chemistry between Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves, Irish director Pat O’Connor revisits darker, historical themes with Private Peaceful, a WWII tale as told through the eyes of two brothers from Devon. It’s perhaps the most serious subject O’Connor has tackled since some of his more celebrated 80s titles, like the Ira romance thriller Cal (1984) which nabbed Helen Mirren one of her two Best Actress wins at Cannes. And yet, while it’s great to find O’Connor avoiding the type of soapy schmaltz he careened into during his last several features, his dip into the over explored WWII era never manages to register as emotionally, thematically, or narratively resonant.

Keanu Reeves is 50: 5 of his best films from The Matrix to Bill & Ted

2 September 2014 7:43 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Despite looking exactly the same as he did 20 years ago, Keanu Reeves celebrates his 50th birthday today (September 2).

Since making his debut in 1985, Reeves has climbed the ranks to become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, with movies that range from comedy to sci-fi, from romance to Shakespeare.

To mark Reeves's milestone, Digital Spy has selected just five of his finest performances from The Matrix to Bill & Ted.

1. Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989)

'Wooaah'. After a handful of roles on TV and the big screen, Keanu got his mainstream break in this surprisingly awesome sci-fi comedy. Opposite Alex Winter as Bill, he was perfectly cast as the air-headed heavy metal-lover Ted. Its sequel Bogus Journey has also become a cult classic, and a third movie has long been mooted. It's a shame that he hasn't shown off his comedy chops on a more regular basis.

2. Point Break (1991)

Reeves achieved full heartthrob status »

Richard Griffiths’ World War I Drama ‘Private Peaceful’ Gets U.S. Distribution

28 August 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

BBC Worldwide North America has acquired all rights in the U.S. and Canada to “Private Peaceful,” featuring the final performance by the late Richard Griffiths.

The World War I drama, based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo, is directed by Pat O’Connor (“Sweet November”). The all-British cast includes Jack O’Connell (“Unbroken”) and George MacKay (“How I Live Now”).

The film will have a national release in the fall.

“On the heels of our World War I commemorative screening campaign in August, we are continuing to bring captivating films with exceptional storytelling from across the pond to the big screen,” said Soumya Sriraman of BBC.

Morpurgo’s novel, published in 2003, is a followup to his 1982 novel “War Horse,” which served as the basis for Steven Spielberg’s 2011 movie.

Private Peaceful” begins in rural England in 1908 and ends in the First World War trenches of Europe. MacKay and O »

'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Doofus-Duo Comedy Classic

15 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Just as Rufus (George Carlin) predicted, Bill and Ted have had a profound influence on our culture. Maybe not as the rockers who would inspire a utopian global society by the 27th century, but look at how many other dumb-duo movies there have been since the release 25 years ago this week (on February 17, 1989) of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" -- there's "Dumb and Dumber," "Beavis and Butt-head Do America," "Dude, Where's My Car," "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion," "Dick," and all of Kevin Smith's "Jay and Silent Bob" offerings, for starters. Plus, "Bill & Ted" launched a franchise and made a leading man out of Keanu Reeves.

Still, as often as you've traveled back in time and revisited the "Excellent Adventure," there's probably still plenty you don't know about the movie, including where it was filmed (hint: Not in San Dimas, California), which historical figures almost found their way into the film, »

Wamg Goes Back In The Day With Michael Rosenbaum

15 January 2014 3:03 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Michael Rosenbaum and the gang are taking a trip down memory lane in the all new side-splitting comedy Back In The Day and because I like you, you’re coming along for the ride. Recently, I sat down with Michael Rosenbaum, to talk about his experiences tackling his first feature as both the writer and director. Not only that, but he stars in the film as well. Michael is a buddy of mine, but we never talk shop so this was a real treat for me.

Back In The Day is the first feature film written and directed by Rosenbaum. He also stars in the film alongside Morena Baccarin Harland WilliamsSarah Colonna, Nick Swardson and Isaiah Mustafa. The film was acquired by Screen Media Films in early October, and will be making it’s way to theaters on January 17, 2014. Can’t wait that long? Well, you are in luck! »
