Blu-ray Review – Dragnet (1987)

6 June 2016 6:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dragnet, 1987.

Directed by Tom Mankiewicz.

Starring Dan Aykroyd, Tom Hanks, Christopher Plummer, Alexandra Paul, Jack O’Halloran, Harry Morgan, Elizabeth Ashley and Debney Coleman.

Synopsis:

Police Sergeant Joe Friday and his new partner Pep Streebeck investigate a pagan cult causing havoc in Los Angeles.

It was the 1980s and buddy cop movies were coming at you left, right and centre. But for every Lethal Weapon, Red Heat or Tango & Cash that meshed together witty banter and extreme violence you also got a whole bunch that were lighter in tone and went straight for the belly laughs. Some were great, some were awful, and 1987’s Dragnet falls somewhere in the middle (but closer to the great end of the spectrum).

Dan Aykroyd (Ghostbusters/The Blues Brothers) plays Sergeant Joe Friday, a straight-laced, no-nonsense cop (and nephew of the Joe Friday from the original Dragnet TV series) who takes pride in his »

I Saw the Light review – twangingly sentimental

8 May 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tom Hiddleston doesn’t quite hit the right key in this Hank Williams biopic

This hokey biopic of country and western star Hank Williams has a lot in common with his music. It’s creaky, sentimental and glaringly obvious. But every so often, it stumbles upon a moment of emotional truth. Tom Hiddleston, in the central role, bears a passing resemblance to the singer. But he is so focused on recreating Williams’s mannerisms that he fails to connect with the man in the way that Joaquin Phoenix managed as Johnny Cash in the similarly formulaic but superior Walk the Line. Elizabeth Olsen is rather better as Williams’s ambitious wife – her voice is all sharp edges, like an insistent, jabbing elbow. To derive any pleasure from the film, though, you probably need to be able to listen to Williams’s hit Lovesick Blues without wanting to hack off your own ears. »

Eriq La Salle Joins 'The Wolverine 3'

5 May 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Variety reports that "ER" alum Eriq Lasalle has joined the cast of 20th Century Fox's "The Wolverine 3" starring Hugh Jackman. Lasalle is the latest actor to join the film joining Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Professor Charles Xavier. James Mangold ("Walk The Line") is returning to direct with a script by David James Kelly

Plot details for the third and final "Wolverine" film are being kept under wraps but Jackman has said frequently that this film will take cues from the "Old Man Logan" comic series. The storyline depicted an aged Logan living in a post-apocalyptic future where the United States has turned into a desolate wasteland and been conquered by villains from the Marvel Universe. 

Their are notable appearances from Hawkeye, the Red Skull, and Hulks offspring. Since Marvel Studios owns those specific characters the screenwriter obviously wrote them all out. "The Wolverine »

I Saw The Light review: “Involving, though quite unremarkable”

5 May 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I Saw The Light review: Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olson headline the biopic based on the short life of the legendary country singer Hank Williams.

The film opens in U.K. cinemas from May 6th. Check out our I Saw The Light review below.

Writer, director and producer Marc Abraham brings the story of Hank Williams to the screen in our second music biopic in about as many weeks following Don Cheadle’s impressive, attitude laced Miles Davis piece Miles Ahead back in April. It’s very much a different tempo with Abraham’s picture, with British actor Tom Hiddleston bravely taking on the role of Williams, a country artist who is regarded as one of the most significant and influential American singers and songwriters of the 20th century.

Actor Richard E. Grant Joins The Wolverine 3 as Mad Scientist

27 April 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, British actor Richard E. Grant has joined 20th Century Fox’s The Wolverine 3 starring Hugh Jackman. Grant’s role is being kept under wraps but sources say he will play a “mad scientist-type” character in the film.

Principal Photography for The Wolverine 3 is set to begin in May with director James Mangold (“Walk The Line”) set to return after directing 2013’s The Wolverine. The confirmed cast includes Hugh Jackman as Logan/The Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier, and Boyd Holbrook.

Plot details on the film are scarce but Jackman has stated that The Wolverine 3 will take inspiration from the “Old Man Logan” Marvel Comic. The limited series saw Logan as an aged Wolverine who lived in a future where the United States was a desert wasteland ruled by super villains from the Marvel Universe.

Joaquin Phoenix Circling Jesus Christ Role In Mary Magdalene Biopic

22 April 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Inherent Vice star Joaquin Phoenix is in final negotiations to board The Weinstein Company’s Mary Magdalene biopic as Jesus Christ, according to Deadline.

Directed by Garth Davis, the religious feature has already tapped Rooney Mara (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network) as the titular Christian figure, and while the addition of Phoenix would certainly be a major casting coup for the studio’s awards-friendly picture, Deadline cautions that a deal is still a ways away from being finalized due to the actor’s schedule.

Portrayed by Spectre star Monica Bellucci for Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ and, before that, Barbara Hershey in The Last Temptation Of Christ, Mary of Magdala became a deeply controversial figure throughout the Middle Ages, when it was suggested the devout follower of Christ was a unforgivable prostitute. Neither of the four gospels mention any such fact; instead, we »

Joaquin Phoenix Eyed to Play Jesus Opposite of Rooney Mara in ‘Mary Magdalene’

22 April 2016 12:54 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A couple months back, there were rumblings of a film that chronicled the life of Mary Magdalene, the somewhat controversial Biblical figure who traveled with Jesus and the rest of his followers. Well, it looks like that film is currently underway, with Rooney Mara taking on the titular role of Mary Magdalene.

Deadline is now reporting, however, that three-time Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix is currently being eyed to play the role of Jesus in the film. The deal is still a ways off from being a sure thing, but given that they’ve locked down the likes of Rooney Mara, it seems there’s a good chance this may come to fruition.

The film is set to be directed by relative newcomer Garth Davis. However, if this deal with Phoenix goes through, it’ll definitely have the pedigree of a successful picture. Phoenix has always been an amazing talent, »

Joaquin Phoenix Considered for Jesus Role in ‘Mary Magdalene’

22 April 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Joaquin Phoenix is being considered as a leading contender to play Jesus in Garth Davis’ “Mary Magdalene,” joining Rooney Mara in the cast, Variety has learned.

The film’s production company See-Saw Films, which is teaming with Universal Pictures Intl. Productions on the project, is in early talks with the actor’s representatives, Wme and Sloane Offer. Phoenix has been nominated for an Oscar three times — for “Gladiator,” “Walk the Line” and “The Master” — and was nominated five times for a Golden Globe, for those three films (winning for “Walk the Line”) as well as “Inherent Vice” and “Her.” He was last seen in Woody Allen’s “Irrational Man.”

Mary Magdalene” is being produced by See-Saw’s Iain Canning and Emile Sherman, whose credits include “The King’s Speech.” Film4 co-developed the film with See-Saw. Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett penned the script to “Mary Magdalene,” which is described »

Phedon Papamichael Eschews Visual Flash for Authenticity, Humanity

20 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Phedon papamichael might not have the name identification of such fellow directors of photography as Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki or Roger Deakins, but his status among his peers is no less elite. He has brought out the best in directors like Alexander Payne, James Mangold and Gore Verbinski. And he has demonstrated a mastery of several genres, from psychological thrillers to dramedies, from biopics to Westerns, from arthouse curios to mega-budget blockbusters.

If cinematographers like to think of themselves as chameleons, Papamichael prides himself on an oeuvre in which no two movies look alike.

“It’s not really applying a style, it’s really adjusting to the story,” says Variety’s latest Billion Dollar Cinematographer. “Not just that, it’s really saving all those decisions — (involving) the performances and locations and actors — until you have all the elements unfold in front of you the moment you’re about to do it. »

How Merle Haggard Changed the Course of Country Music

6 April 2016 3:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Legendary country star Merle Haggard died Wednesday on his 79th birthday, a coincidence that wouldn't seem out of place in one of Haggard's many indispensable contributions to country music. But Haggard didn't just pen hits like "Okie from Muskogee," "Sing Me Back Home" and "Mama Tried." He fundamentally altered the course of country music on a granular level, introducing a sonic blueprint that would come to be known as "the Bakersfield sound," a rough-hewn counterpoint to the sweeter sounds coming out of Nashville at the same time. Born in Bakersfield, California, to Dust Bowl migrants from Oklahoma, Haggard spent large »

Review: Frustratingly Episodic Hank Williams Biopic 'I Saw The Light' Starring Tom Hiddleston & Elizabeth Olsen

22 March 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Hank Williams biopic “I Saw The Light” really has three stars: Tom Hiddleston, Elizabeth Olsen, and cinematographer Dante Spinotti. Hiddleston’s performance as the hard-living, still-influential country music singer-songwriter is likely to get the most attention, and for good reason. He’s makes an absolutely magnetic Williams, using his wiry frame and wide, thin smile to convey both the fragility of the man and his innate charisma. But Olsen matches Hiddleston as Hank’s ornery, long-suffering first wife, Audrey. Unlike Reese Witherspoon’s ingratiating, Oscar-winning take on June Carter in the Johnny Cash movie “Walk The Line," Olsen’s Audrey has a lot of acid oozing through her, and has no patience for her husband’s boozing and womanizing. Whenever those two are on screen together — nuzzling each other and snarling at each other with a similar intimacy — “I Saw The Light” is something special. And again, it’d »

The 10 Best Music Biopics Ever Made

While many eyes are on the brawl between Batman and Superman soon to hit theaters, this weekend will see another cinematic clash on movie screens: Hank Williams v Chet Baker: Dawn Of Justice. In a quirk of the release calendar, the two singers —one from the country world, the other from jazz— are both the subjects of movie biopics released this Friday, with Tom Hiddleston playing Williams in “I Saw The Light,” and Ethan Hawke as Baker in “Born To Be Blue.” Read More: The 25 Best Music Documentaries Of The 21st Century So Far Yet it’s hard to get too enthusiastic, since few genres are as lashed to formula as the biopic, and the music biopic in particular. The clichés have been around for years, but it was the one-two punch of “Ray” and “Walk The Line” a decade ago that felt like the last straw. Both films feature terrific Oscar-winning performances, »

X-Men Breakout Lucas Till To Headline CBS’ Rebooted MacGyver Series

21 March 2016 3:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lucas Till of X-Men prequels fame will headline CBS’ rebooted MacGyver series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Not to be confused with Lionsgate’s cinematic reboot, Till will now assume the role of the Phoenix Foundation operative – one made famous by Richard Dean Anderson in the original 80s series – bringing an end to a long and extensive search staged by CBS. In addition, Joshua Boone has been recruited as Gunner, a series regular and best friend to Till’s street-wise schemer.

Viewed as a total reboot of the cult action series, THR notes that the network’s modern reimagining is to “follow a 20-something MacGyver (Till) as he gets recruited into a clandestine organization where he uses his knack for solving problems in unconventional ways to help prevent disasters from happening.”

As for Till, outside of X-Men prequel trilogy, the 25-year-old American broke onto the scene with Walk the Line, »

Don Cheadle: Why I Had to Make My Miles Davis Movie

14 March 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There's a reason that, in an age when everyone from Hank Williams to the Notorious B.I.G. has been blessed with a biopic, a musical giant like Miles Davis had long eluded big-screen treatment. For starters, the idea of trying to do justice to the jazz legend's multifaceted career with a cradle-to-grave template seemed ridiculous; when asked what he'd accomplished, the jazz trumpeter and composer replied with, "Well, I guess I changed music five or six times," and it wasn't an idle boast.

James Mangold Signs On For Captain Nemo At Disney, But What Does This Mean For The Wolverine 2?

27 February 2016 11:40 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Director James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma) will direct a Captain Nemo origin film for Walt Disney that will be an original story rather than a direct adaptation of the Jules Verne novel.  Sebastian Gutierrez (Hotel Noir and The Eye) is writing the script. Fearful Wolverine fans should rest easy as reports from all the Hollywood trades indicate that Mangold is still hard at work on prepping his shoot for The Wolverine sequel.   However, as luck would have, there's another X-Men director who plans on making a film starring Captain Nemo, Bryan Singer.   The X-Men: Apocalypse director has stated that 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea will be his next film for Fox, following Apocalypse.  With Apocalypse set to hit theaters in May and The Wolverine 2 still set to shoot, it looks like Singer's version will hit theaters well before Mangold's take.  Another difference is that Singer's version will be »
