Movie Review: 'The Darkest Hour'

26 December 2011 6:03 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

The Darkest Hour

Starring Emile Hirsch, Max Minghella, Olivia Thirlby

Directed by Chris Gorak

Rated PG-13

Try sitting down and writing out a 500 word document about a blank concrete wall and you'll pretty much understand what I'm going through when writing this review.  The Darkest Hour is a bad movie, but that's not its biggest problem.  Its biggest problem is that it's a boring movie.  Oh, god, is it a boring movie.  It's like having to listen to a lecture by Ben Stein about how to file your taxes.

The film starts out with two American business entrepreneurs, Ben and Sean, trying to sell a Gps system to Russian investors.  The former is played by The Social Network's Max Minghella, and the latter by Emile Hirsch.  Man, Emile Hirsch, remember him in Into the Wild?  Wasn't that a great movie?  Who ever thought that Sean Penn would be able to direct so. »

Top 10 Hollywood Actors Still In Business

16 December 2011 7:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Much of our lurid film community is of the belief that America’s acting prowess died with its classic stars like Marlon Brando, James Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Grace Kelly. However, I’m here to argue that America’s actors are stronger than ever and can match up toe to toe with the likes of both Europe and Asia.

The list will be split into two parts: in part one, I delve into the modern world of Hollywood actors with actresses soon to follow in part two.

Part one: Top Ten Actors Working In Hollywood Today

Actor With The Most Potential To Hit It Big: Paddy Considine

Before I begin the list, I want to take a moment to discuss an actor whom I believe has enormous potential. While not American born, British actor Paddy Considine has been in his fair share of American films like In America, »

A Batch Of New Images From 'The Darkest Hour' Starring Emile Hirsch & Olivia Thirlby Invade Earth

14 December 2011 10:48 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a year that’s seen the alien invasion genre grow in abundance with films ranging from the nostalgic and sweet “Super 8” to the visceral thrills of “Attack the Block,” along with the just plain awful “Battle: Los Angeles,” what’s wrong with squeezing one more in by the end of 2011? “The Darkest Hour,” which sees the return of “Into the Wild” star Emile Hirsch, follows a group of five young people who fend off aliens feeding off our power supply in an effort to take over our world throughout the city of Moscow. A batch of new images have arrived for the film, which will be invading theaters on Christmas Day. To be totally honest about Summit’s release, which also features Olivia Thirlby, "The Killing" star Joel Kinnaman and “The Social Network” actor Max Minghella, it feels like it’s been forgotten by most media outlets and maybe the studio itself. »

"Beginners" and "The Tree of Life" tie for Best Film at the Gotham Awards

28 November 2011 8:23 PM, PST | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

The Gotham Awards mark the unofficial beginning of awards season so it's actually kind of appropriate that the big winner at this year's Gothams was a movie called "Beginners." Mike Mills' autobiographical story of a dying father and his grieving son scored two awards at tonight's Gotham Awards: one for Best Ensemble Performance and one for Best Film. In an usual twist, "Beginners"' Best Film award was actually shared with another movie, Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life." The oh-so-rare awards season tie was a result of the way the Gothams use small juries of filmmakers and industry professionals rather than a large body of voters to select their winners. According to indieWIRE, the Best Film jurors deliberated for two and a half hours before finally settling on the cinematic equivalent of a hung jury.

In general, it was a night of many surprises at the show. »

Ten things I learnt during The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

26 November 2011 9:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blake Howard sinks his teeth into The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1...

So I’m not going to bother reviewing Twilight for fear of measuring it in the standard that I’m normally used to, that is to say – as a Film and not a phenomenon. I’m mainly going to compare it with comparable televisual texts and attempt to grade it according to this now emerged vamp / wolf genre. So I’ll just share my key learnings with you after seeing (and thankfully not paying for – bless you Dale Sinden) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1...

1. If one receives a wedding invite to one’s best friend’s wedding (that one is also in love with) in the post, one must immediately take their shirt off and run into the woods.

2. The werewolves in this film have caught the ‘Banner’ syndrome – meaning that when they transform into giant wolves, »

Need a Straight Shot of Adorable? Watch the Trailer for Leafie, a Hen Into the Wild

25 November 2011 10:44 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Animated films featuring a bevy of cute and cuddly animals in perilous situations are a guilty pleasure of mine, just as long as the aforementioned scenarios aren’t, you know, too perilous. I am, after all, a bit of a softy, and watching fuzzy little critters get violently obliterated tends to cause my tear ducts to leak quite profusely. “Leafie, a Hen Into the Wild” was released into various South Korean theaters way back in July, though it recently landed on Region 3 DVD earlier this month, complete with handy English subtitles. Hell yes, I say. For the uninformed, check out all of these words: Based on a bestselling preteen novel of the same title that has sold more than 1 million copies in Korea, “Leafie, A Hen into the Wild” is about a laying hen named Leafie who is destined to live the “same old” repetitive life confined on the chicken farm. »

Where Should Emma Watson Go from Here?

24 November 2011 1:00 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

With all the hype surrounding Michelle Williams’s turn as Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn," you’d be forgiven for forgetting that the film marks a turning point for another actress in the project. With her first on-screen role since wrapping the "Harry Potter" series, Emma Watson makes the leap from the franchise that won her fame and fortune.

Is this the start of a burgeoning career for the young British beauty? For Watson, that all depends on how she plays the game.

In "Marilyn," Watson turns in a charming performance as a costume girl on set of "The Prince and the Showgirl"; she falls for Colin Clark, an ambitious assistant on set. The role is small and doesn't offer Watson much to do other than play scorned when Clark sets his sights on Monroe, but Watson carries the bit part off with relative ease and leaves a good, »

‘Darkest Hour’ TV Spot & Images

23 November 2011 1:42 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The Darkest Hour has largely flown under the radar when compared to other, more high-profile Christmas 2011 movie offerings (See: TinTin or Girl With the Dragon Tattoo). This unique-looking sci-fi film features a young cast of up-and-coming actors, including Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild), Olivia Thirlby (Juno), Max Minghella (The Social Network), Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) and Rachael Taylor (Transformers), playing survivors of an alien invasion.

The big twist is – these aren’t the usual aliens you see an invasion flick, as they are comprised of energy that is invisible to the naked eye.

Check out the official synopsis for The Darkest Hour, which basically explains everything stated above:

In Russia, a group of young adults struggle to survive after an alien invasion.

Ok, so maybe we skipped over the whole “in Russia” part, but I digress. Now, check out the latest TV spot for The Darkest Hour, which is entitled »

It's Confirmed: Kristen Stewart in Talks to Star in WB's 'Akira' Movie

16 November 2011 1:06 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

And here we go. Earlier today it was reported by Twitch that Twilight, Into the Wild and Adventureland star Kristen Stewart had been offered the lead role of Kei in Warner Bros' upcoming live-action Akira movie, being directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, and now Deadline has confirmed that she is definitely in "advanced talks" for the role. Garrett Hedlund as we know is already in talks to play Kaneda, and Deadline says Gary Oldman is also set to play the Colonel (some of the better casting so far). Ezra Miller is in the running for Tetsuo, but no one else is confirmed yet. The cast is definitely shaping up, but will it turn out any good? Warner Bros and Appian Way are developing Akira, which recently got the greenlight to finally start with Jaume Collet-Serra at the helm. Deadline mentions again that "the intention has been to make two films, each »

It's Okay That Kristen Stewart Was Offered 'Akira' Lead...

15 November 2011 10:02 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

It's hard to get the stank taste of Twilight out of my mouth when speaking of Kristen Stewart, but it's even more difficult to argue that she isn't quite the little actress. I was charmed by her in Adventureland, she rocked as Joan Jett in the indie The Runaways, and hit the road in Sean Penn's widely successful Into the Wild. Of the Twilight acting trio, she's the only one I take seriously. With that said, I welcome Stewart as a potential candidate for Warner Bros. Pictures' Akira, which is finally to be directed by House of Wax and Orphan's Jaume Collet-Sera. Twitch reports that Stewart has been offered the part of Kei, a young medium who becomes the love interest for Kaneda - the role already publicly offered to Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy). »
