The Equalizer movie review: recycled junk

5 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Yet another artifact of the long stagnation of Hollywood, which has been remaking the same movies over and over and over again for the past 30 years. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Do you remember the 1980s TV series The Equalizer, in which Edward Woodward played a mysterious former intelligence operative who did little private-eye vigilante jobs for people in trouble in New York City? No? Perhaps you remember the supercool electronic theme music (it was written by Stewart Copeland of The Police!)? Still nothing?

Never mind. Doesn’t matter. If this movie wasn’t entitled The Equalizer, you’d never guess it was meant to be a reboot of the series. That don’t mean it ain’t constructed of recycled junk! Nope, this is but one more artifact of the long stagnation of Hollywood, »

22 September 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July it was reported that Colin Farrell had entered talks with HBO about joining the cast of True Detective for its second season, and now the actor has confirmed his involvement with the critically acclaimed show during an interview with Irish newspaper Sunday World.

“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”

Other names reportedly in the frame for roles in the second season of True Detective include Taylor Kitsch (Battleship), Vince Vaughn (Delivery Man), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), Rachel McAdams (About Time), Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in line to play Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone movie

22 September 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt could be in line to play Edward Snowden in Oliver Stone and Moritz Borman's film about the CIA whistleblower.

According to Deadline, the Don Jon actor is said to be in talks to play the role of the asylum-seeking computer expert, who leaked classified intelligence details last summer.

Casting Edward Snowden: Who should play the Prism whistleblower?

Stone and Borman have the film rights to the novel Time of the Octopus, which was written by Snowden's Russian lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena.

The novel tells the story of an American whistle-blower who travels to Russia in an attempt to gain asylum.

The producers have also bought the screen rights to The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man, which was written by Guardian journalist Luke Harding.

Filming is expected to begin in Munich in December.

Gordon-Levitt was most recently seen in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Eyes Edward Snowden Role in Oliver Stone Movie

21 September 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oliver Stone seems to have found the man to play Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden in his next pic “The Snowden Files.”

Sources tell Variety that Stone has offered the part to Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and that the actor has agreed to do it. Though negotiations have not yet begun, both sides want the deal to happen.

Stone is writing and directing and will produce with Eric Kopeloff and Moritz Borman.

Snowden’s story is now familiar to most: the former U.S. intelligence analyst released more classified documents than anyone since Daniel Ellsberg’s leaking of the Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War. He has been on the run ever since.

Stone acquired the rights to the book “Time of the Octopus” by Snowden’s lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, which is considered the closest thing to a documented account of the events since Snowden first released the documents.

If the deal is made, »

Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb talks Daredevil and The Defenders

21 September 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Marvel set to give us our first look at its Netflix series Daredevil at the New York Comic Con next month, Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb has taken a moment to discuss the upcoming show during an interview on Kfi Am 640 (via ComicBook), stating that fans wanting to know what they’re not doing with Daredevil need look no further than the 2003 feature film starring Ben Affleck.

“When we started talking to our actors and to our directors, this is with all due respect to the film, if you want to know what we’re not doing, go watch the movie. If you want to know what we’re doing, it’s very much steeped in the world of the comics, but it also has a life of its own and that’s really what television and our films really do is that we take the best… »

New images from Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children

21 September 2014 12:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hot off the heels of the new trailer release for Jason Reitman’s upcoming film Men, Women & Children, Paramount has released a new batch of images showing off the drama’s varied cast and even a few behind-the-scenes shots at Reitman himself. Check them out below, right after the synopsis.

Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, »

7 Movies People Think Are All About Sex

16 September 2014 5:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Sex.

Now we’ve got your attention we’d like to talk about sex in films.

The idea of sex dominates our society. Advertising hinges on presenting an idealised life and so often that idealised life is realised through sexuality; everything, from soft drinks to hotel comparison websites use the promise of sex to get you to buy their products. Heck, it’s seemingly the only way to sell deodorant.

When films deal with sexual themes it’s less to present a idealised reality (the sort of films that do can only be shown in special cinemas) and more to either to provide entertainment for the audience or to comment on some little talked area of our society. The former sounds quite vulgar, but it’s remarkably common; can you imagine Eva Green would have spent so much of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For naked »

7 actresses land on new True Detective season 2 shortlist

15 September 2014 10:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Contrary to reports citing that actresses like Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Rachel McAdams (About Time) were close to signing deals to appear on the hotly anticipated second season of True Detective, their names do not appear on a new shortlist released by TheWrap. Today the site revealed the names of seven actresses currently vying to fill one of the series’ leading roles.

The actresses in question are, Brit Marling (The Keeping Room), Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Kelly Reilly (Eden Lake), Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) and Jessica Biel (Total Recall).

The actresses have reportedly been “invited back to read this week for the coveted role.” Moss and McAdams could very well still be in the running, but with writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto now focusing on auditioning a new group of actresses, he’s clearly taking all options into consideration. »

Scott Glenn set to play Stick in Marvel’s Daredevil

15 September 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Scott Glenn has been announced by Marvel to play the mysterious martial artist and mentor to Daredevil, Stick, in the upcoming Netflix series which is set to debut next year. Glenn is best known for his roles in The Bourne Ultimatum, The Silence of the Lambs, Training Day and Apocalypse Now. This is not the first time that the character of Stick will appear in live action, with Terence Stamp previously playing the role in Elektra back in 2005.

“Stick is one of the most important figures in Matt Murdock’s life and Scott Glenn embodies all the qualities of someone so integral to this hero’s journey,” said Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television. “There are few actors who could bring such the authenticity, gravitas and charisma to such a key role in Matt’s journey to become the super hero we call Daredevil.”

David Fincher Apparently Thinks 'Dragon Tattoo' Sequel 'The Girl Who Played With Fire' Could Get Made

11 September 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" a colossal bomb last month, it's an instructive lesson to Hollywood that what may have captured the zeitgeist years ago, may not resonate later. David Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,"  based on the bestselling book that everyone read, came on the heels of the Swedish language trilogy that brought Noomi Rapace to the attention of Hollywood. And those are just a couple of the reasons the very expensive, R-rated, adult thriller—released at Christmas—only earned just over $230 million worldwide. That might seem like a lot, but when you factor in the budget and release date, clearly the studio expected a better result. Still, they have a franchise on their hands, but one that has been moving along very, very slowly. Back in 2013, "Se7en" screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker was hired to rewrite the script for "The Girl Who Played With Fire, »

Daredevil to be more violent than Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. says showrunner

11 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production underway, we should be expecting some footage or a trailer coming out of the set of Marvel’s Daredevil in the next few months. But with shows like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards pushing the boundaries you can’t push on regular TV via Netflix, will the Man Without Fear be able to take a similar approach?

When asked on Twitter how the show will play in terms of violence and swearing, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight responded that Daredevil will be “less than Spartacus, more than Sheild“.

Less than Spartacus, more than Shield. Rt @TimLydon0: What are you allowed to show on @Daredevil in terms of violence, swearing, etc?

Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) September 10, 2014

Quite the gap really. DeKnight was the man behind Spartacus: Blood and Sand which aired in 2010 and was known for its high levels of violence and foul language while Marvel »

First images from Joe Carnahan’s Stretch, starring Chris Pine

11 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With films such as Narc, The A-Team and The Grey under his belt, you would think it would a little easier these days for director Joe Carnahan to get his films made. However, his latest film Stretch, a low-budget thriller made with small-budget horror specialists Blumhouse, the film was due to bow in March this year, but was dropped by Universal earlier in the year.

The film, which is now set to debut on VOD this month, has some big talent involved, including Chris Pine (Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit), Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Insidious), Ed Harris (The Rock, Snowpiercer), Ed Helms (The Hangover), Brooklyn Dekker (Battleship), and Jessica Alba (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), but it seems even they were not enough for the studio to fully back the film.

According to Deadline, Blumhouse is launching a new venture, Bh Tilt, aimed at putting together multi-platform releases »
