Movie Review – Journeyman (2017)

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Journeyman, 2017.

Directed by Paddy Considine.

Starring Paddy Considine, Jodie Whittaker, Paul Popplewell, Tony Pitts, and Anthony Welsh.

Synopsis:

Middleweight boxing champion of the world, Matty Burton, faces the biggest fight of his career when a life threatening injury irreparably changes him and his family.

The prospect of another boxing movie so soon after Creed, Southpaw, and Bleed for This might have your eyes rolling into the back of your head like one of Matty Burton’s (Paddy Considine) canvas bound opponents.

For the first twenty minutes that worry is fully justified, with Considine’s sophomore effort, following the stunning Tyrannosaur, feeling worryingly featherweight. The sporting environment is recreated as though it’s broadcasting on a higher-numbered digital channel, in other words, it’s a little bit rubbish, with boxing personalities (Steve Bunce) given prominent roles to increase the authenticity. It doesn’t really work

With the boxing movie sub-genre so saturated, »

Akiva Goldsman No Longer Writing Transformers Movies

3 August 2017 4:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

A couple years back, it was revealed that Paramount was seeming to take the Transformers franchise seriously. Rather than make each film one after another, with no real thought as to the direction of the whole franchise, they opted to create a writers room. This writers room had some real heavy hitters in the industry. The aim of this writers room was to help expand the world of Transformers and outline potential films, the first of which became Transformers: The Last Knight.

Leading this writers room was Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, who has crafted countless classics like A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man. But what other involvement does Goldsman have? Will he continue to help out with the films in the future? Speaking to /Film while at the Television Critics Association press tour, Goldsman stated that he is no longer involved writing any of the Transformers films.

Stephen King Speaks Out About The Dark Tower's Future

3 August 2017 4:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The negative reviews for The Dark Tower keep rolling in. Sony's film adaptation of Stephen King's long-running dark fantasy series slides into theaters only hours after initial reviews started appearing online -- intentionally delaying press screenings is a strong indicator the studio knows its film is troubled. Currently The Dark Tower is sitting at 18% on Rotten Tomatoes and 34 on Metacritic, and unlikely to improve.

So what went wrong? The film has the backing of powerhouse producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, veteran screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (Lone Survivor, Cinderella Man), and a cast that includes Idris Elba (Thor) and Matthew McConaughey (True Detective). Bigger question, will Sony's heavy marketing be enough to give it a strong opening weekend? Given the relatively modest $66 million budget, a solid global box office this weekend is probably enough to warrant a sequel. If there is a sequel, what can be done to rectify the first film's problems? »

Rocky. Rocky II. Rocky III. Rocky IV….I could keep going and somehow we’ll end with Creed, but that doesn’t matter. What does, however, is who Rocky was inspired after, and what that man has to lay claim to fame.

Chuck Wepner is his name. He’s the man that went fifteen rounds in the ring with the man of the hour, Muhammad AliChuck also happens to be the name of the new film coming out about his life in and out of the ring and show business. Directed by Philippe Falardeau (who had previously directed The Good Lie), the film stars Liev Schreiber as Chuck Wepner, Naomi Watts as Linda, Elisabeth Moss as Phyliss, Jim Gaffigan as John, and Ron Perlman as Al Braverman.

Of course, since this is a dramatic version of real life events, it wouldn’t be a film without having Sylvester Stallone »

The Selma and A United Kingdom actor David Oyelowo has signed up to movie adaptation Arc of Justice which tells the groundbreaking story of the Clarence Darrow-Ossian Sweet civil rights cases which also has The Nice Guys actor, Russell Crowe rumoured to be in talks to join on the project.

His defence was funded by the nascent National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People and led by Darrow (Crowe).

27 April 2017 10:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Akiva Goldsman may be best known as an Oscar-winning screenwriter whose credits include “A Beautiful Mind” and “Cinderella Man,” but he appears to have found a second act as a horror director. At the inaugural edition of The Overlook Film Festival, a horror film festival taking place at the Timberline Lodge in Mt. Hood, Oregon, Goldsman premiered “Stephanie,” the low-budget supernatural horror film that he directed for Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions.

After the screening, Goldsman and Blum shared some breaking news with the audience: The pair would be teaming up again for a new adaptation of “Firestarter,” Stephen King’s 1980 novel about a young girl with pyrokensis and the government agency on her trail.

No one knows about this at all,” said Blum, who also received the festival’s Visionary Award for his support of horror films. “Akiva and Stephen King have a long relationship. We wouldn’t do »

Catfight review

11 April 2017 8:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sandra Oh and Anne Heche beat the ever-loving crap out of each other in Onur Tukel's latest indie offering...

If you’ve only heard the briefest of things about Catfight, you’d be forgiven for imagining a sort of female version of The Fast Show’s ‘Long Big Punch Up’ and, to be fair, that wouldn’t be too far off the mark.

Turkish-American indie filmmaker Onur Tukel is back in the spotlight with this new outing, leaning into satire and away from his slightly more uncomfortable forays into horror-comedy.

While some of the director’s previous efforts, like Applesauce and Summer Of Blood, drew some extremely positive reviews, general audiences haven’t responded in kind so far, and he doesn’t make it easy for the mainstream to embrace him with Catfight, either. And you know what? Good. I may not have personally enjoyed a lot of Onur Tukel’s films, »

"Tear Down the Fences": Watching Capra in the Age of Trump

The retrospective Frank Capra, The American Dreamer is showing April 10 - May 31, 2017 in the United Kingdom.Frank CapraFrank Capra has fallen badly out of fashion in recent decades. While still well-known for the extraordinary Depression-era purple patch that produced It Happened One Night (1934), Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936) and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), the critics have rarely been kind. His work is routinely derided as “Capra-corn” for its perceived sentimentality and “fairy tale” idealism while the man himself is written off in favour of contemporaries Howard Hawks, Preston Sturges and Ernst Lubitsch.Elliot Stein, writing in Sight & Sound in 1972, attacked Capra’s “fantasies of good will, which at no point conflict with middle-class American status quo values”, arguing that his “shrewdly commercial manipulative tracts” consist of little more than “philistine-populist notions and greeting-card sentiments”. Pauline Kael found him “softheaded,” Derek Malcolm a huckster hawking “cosily absurd fables.” To an extent, »
