56th BFI London Film Festival Review - Grassroots (2012)

19 October 2012 7:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Grassroots, 2012. 

Directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal

Starring Jason Biggs, Joel David Moore, Lauren Ambrose, Cobie Smulders, Tom Arnold, Christopher McDonald and Cedric the Entertainer.


An unemployed journalist decides to help his eccentric friend run for a seat on the Seattle city council while also trying to keep his relationship with his girlfriend together.

In this age of politicians garnering insults about expenses, philandering and, perhaps more suitable, talking about the 47% and the like, Grassroots comes at a time where it can most capitalise on peoples’ feelings towards mayors, ministers and other misers. It’s colourful, sugar covered sheen ensures our heroes, Phil (Biggs) and Grant (Moore), are the ones to root for. When better to root for two down on their luck oddballs than when politicians everywhere (especially the ones up for election soon in a mostly unknown country across the Atlantic) are under intense scrutiny?

This cynicism disguised as sincerity is confronted as Grant, »

Brett Ratner To Direct Midnight Run 2

22 March 2012 1:15 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures are reviving plans for a 25-years-later sequel to their well remembered 1988 classic Midnight Run, which has original star Robert De Niro attached to reprise his tough bounty hunter Jack Walsh.

Deadline reports that Brett Ratner (Tower Heist, Rush Hour) has now entered talks to sit in the director’s chair which has sent the Internet film community into a furious rage but just like his recent attachment to the MTV origins movie “I Want My MTV”, I actually think this is a property where he could deliver something decent out of. He did himself make a decent mismatched buddy action comedy with the first Rush Hour movie, though where his mindset was for the sequels I don’t know.

G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra and Four Brothers writers David Elliot and Paul Lovett have been tasked with re-writing Tom Dowling’s (Role Models) original script for Midnight Run 2. »
