Here's looking at me: Does Angelina Jolie’s By the Sea qualify for Hollywood’s Hall of Vain?

3 December 2015 10:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Once, big film stars fought to turn their personal obsessions in to earnest, uncommercial movies that made them look good and bored everyone else. Now they’re less set on playing the world-changing hero. What’s with the sudden modesty?

It used to be easy to spot a vanity project. If Steven Seagal is playing a heroic spirit-warrior who slaughters a rigful of oil workers to defend Inuit tribes, that’s a vanity project (1994’s On Deadly Ground, if you were wondering). If Mariah Carey is playing a hard-knock orphan whose vocal talents turn her into a superstar … Yep: vanity project (Glitter). If Madonna is … well, if Madonna is in it at all, it’s probably a vanity project.

But things aren’t so clear-cut these days. Take Angelina Jolie’s new movie, By the Sea. She wrote, directed, produced and stars in it, opposite her husband Brad Pitt. And »

Directors' Trademarks: Guy Ritchie

18 August 2015 5:27 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. This month we’re examining the trademark style and calling signs of Guy Ritchie as director.

Guy Ritchie didn’t attend a prestigious film school, or become an understudy of a famous filmmaker to home his craft. Instead, he has worked his way up from the bottom, literally. He dropped out of secondary school and took a low paying job for a film studio. Over time he made commercials and short films. People liked what they saw, and when he came up with the idea for a feature length film, he was able to raise the money he needed for production. That film became Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), which was well received, and eventually became an international hit. His follow-up was Snatch, which followed a similar premise, »

Guy Ritchie’s films ranked from worst to best

18 August 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matthew Lee ranks Guy Ritchie’s films from worst to best…

To coincide with the release Guy Ritchie’s latest comedy spy caper The Man from U.N.C.L.E., we’re looking back on his prior films to see how they stand today. Let’s see if time has been either kind, or harsh, towards his back catalogue. Sometimes retrospect can add further appreciation to a film once met with critical derision, sometimes nostalgia can blur one’s opinion, and retrospect in a neutral light can allow a clearer and a more honest opinion of a film to come forward.

For a more optimistic ranking approach of Ritchie’s films, it is only appropriate to start with the worst and to make our way to his best.

7 – Swept Away

Is this really the worst film Guy Ritchie ever committed to? Is this where we begin this list? Yes and yes.

‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’: Guy Ritchie’s Journey to Bring Spy Series in From the Cold

12 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Directors including Steven Soderbergh, Quentin Tarantino and Matthew Vaughn once circled the project, as did stars like George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling and Channing Tatum. However, the hoped-for bigscreen adaptation didn’t get real traction at Warner Bros. until Guy Ritchie, the director who reimagined the studio’s 2009 blockbuster “Sherlock Holmes” and its sequel two years later, pitched his take.

“There were several screenplays along the way, but it never got to the starting line before Guy,” says Greg Silverman, president of creative development and worldwide production at Warner Bros. Pictures. “It needed a direction, it needed someone who had a point of view and a real voice. It’s very particularly Guy Ritchie’s ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ ”

That said, “U.N.C.L.E.,” which cost $75 million to produce, and tens of millions more to market and release, poses a sizable risk for the Burbank studio. »

Film Review: ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’

10 August 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Whatever tough-guy notion of 1960s masculinity Robert Vaughn and David McCallum once embodied as reluctantly paired Cold War rivals has clearly gone the way of the Berlin Wall in the otherwise retro-flavored “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,” a PG-13-rated loose-nukes caper whose target audience is too young to remember the classic spy show that inspired it — much less the once-frosty deadlock between American capitalism and Soviet communism that pits its distractingly handsome leading men against one another. Starring Henry Cavill as American art thief Napoleon Solo and Armie Hammer as Kgb operative Illya Kuryakin, Guy Ritchie’s latest feels more suave and restrained than his typically hyperkinetic fare, trading rough-and-tumble attitude for pretty-boy posturing. And though the pic is solidly made, its elegant vintage flavor simply doesn’t feel modern enough to cut through the tough summer competition. Those seeking stylish spies will surely wait for “Spectre” or that promised “Kingsman” sequel instead. »

"I'm not the mug, you are!" 7 explosive Towie in Marbella moments

17 February 2015 7:41 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Only Way Is Essex returns to our small screens this weekend with an exotic glimpse of the female cast (and Bobby Norris) in sunny Tenerife.

But instead of kicking back and lapping up the sun, sea, sand and excessive amounts of cava, the girls managed to weather their own stormy and tumultuous few days. As Lydia Bright recently admitted: "There's never been so many arguments on one holiday!"

And we've already practically seen what Bobby had for breakfast in one Tenerife spoiler...

To celebrate Towie's return, here are 7 explosive and tear-laden Marbella moments below - from Mario getting his just desserts with a glass of sangria to Gemma Collins's angry candy below:

1. You ain't ever going to get This candy

Gemma Collins was ready to put James Argent firmly in his place and fully in public - once he had stopped showing off about his farts to fellow co-stars in the pool. »

Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” trailer impresses, but…

12 February 2015 4:44 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

How much of a The Man from U.N.C.L.E. fan am I?

Need I add, this is in my wallet?

This much.

So when I heard Guy Ritchie got the nod to bring us a new film, I was ready to believe.  But of course, this is not only the man who brought us Snatch and the Sherlock Holmes movies, but the remake of Swept Away.  

When I first heard that Tom Cruise had been cast as Napoleon Solo, I was not happy.  Not because of any lack of talent on the couch-jumper, but because he was already connected to the Mission Impossible franchise, and I thought it was a bit much all for him.

So hearing that Henry Cavill got the role instead made me feel much better.  So too hearing that Armie Hammer (a man with a name that could have easily been used in »
