Sneaky Pete Review

5 hours ago | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Giovanni Ribisi has been around longer than most people probably realize, and he has had some great roles throughout his career, but in Sneaky Pete, he’s finally found something that gives him the chance to show off just how good he really is.

Leave it to Bryan Cranston to come up with a series (that is really just a 10-hour movie) that gives its actors so much room to pull life from the shadows. The show isn’t just a kind of homage to con/caper films, but to a theory of character study that is largely abandoned today, one that knows you have to study all the characters to pull apart the main one. That’s an idea that is hard to relay without it sounding as though the show is rather stuffy and boring, but Sneaky Pete is anything. It isn’t just wildly fun, it’s »

How to Identify the Four 'Peak Tom Hardy' Types

17 January 2017 9:46 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »

First Trailer For TV Series ‘Snatch’ Will Bring You Back To The Good Old Days Of Guy Ritchie

17 January 2017 6:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At one time, Guy Ritchie’s brand had him leading the post-”Pulp Fiction” wave of directors following in the wake of Quentin Tarantino, with his own distinctly British crime pictures that mixed action and comedy with equal verve. Now he’s just a guy stuck in the blockbuster rut making stuff like “Sherlock Holmes” or this summer’s “King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.” Yawn.

‘The Bachelor’ Recap: Corinne Dances With Backstreet Boys, Has Existential Meltdown

16 January 2017 8:03 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The last time we saw “Beard Hunk,” he revealed to the women that he and Liz had a one night stand at Jade and Tanner’s wedding. Drama! Then, nine months later she walked out of the limo, but since she hadn’t made enough of an attempt to contact him since their hookup and didn’t have convincing answers to his questions, he sent her home. Didn’t follow that? Great news: It does not matter at all.

Something that (unfortunately?) is more relevant to the rest of the episode: Corinne (and her trench coat, which probably should have been available to draft in “Bachelor” fantasy leagues).

That’s right — Corinne decides that, despite already having a rose, she will toss on a trench coat (and only a trench coat), grab a can to whipped cream and seduce Nick. “I definitely know how to turn on the sex charm,” she »

Sherlock Review: The Final Problem

15 January 2017 11:23 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Well, wow. Sherlock Season 4 Episode 3 was intense. There were a lot of revelations, twists and callbacks, and it was one of the best character studies this show has offered to date. Again, there were fantastic performances from all involved.

That said, Euros' story, or the execution of it, might have been too much for Sherlock's own good. The plot itself left us as many questions as it did answers, which makes it much less satisfying than if it had been a simpler but more compact story.

Let's start with what was great about Sherlock Season 4 Episode 3. This installment was one of the best ones to allow us to dive into who these people are, who they have become. Practically every moment, every scene revealed something about these characters.

We learned that the Holmes family can't just have a conversation, but resorts to experiments on each other to learn the »

‘Sherlock’ Review: ‘The Final Problem’ Proves to Be A Problematic Season Finale

15 January 2017 6:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last Week’S Review: “The Lying Detective’ Gives Us Sherlock’s Most Terrifying Villain Yet

[Spoilers follow for Season 4, Episode 3, “The Final Problem.”]

Season 4 of Sherlock has galloped by — which is easy enough, when the seasons are only three episodes long — but it ends on an oddly final note. Although cast and crew insist that this isn’t necessarily the end, Steven Moffatt and Mark Gatiss wrap up their 13th episode on an elegiac note, musing on the legend that is Sherlock and Watson.

It’s just a shame the rest of the episode was such a mess, really.

Don’t Look Now, Mycroft

The opening of the episode is pure Gatiss — in what seems like it must be a dream sequence but isn’t, Mycroft is haunted by the voice of his sister (represented by what we assume is a little girl but is actually a small man in a wig), a clown, and portraits that weep blood. »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Sherlock recap here.

We never thought we’d see another evil genius torture Sherlock like Moriarty did… but then again, no one can torture you quite like family.

Sherlock‘s Season 4 finale, “The Final Problem,” followed up on last week’s shocking arrival of Sherlock Holmes’ long-lost sister Eurus, revealing her to be a master manipulator who delights in toying with the emotions of her detective brother… and playing deadly games for her own amusement. But did she win out in the end? And if the rumors are true that this could be Sherlock‘s final season, »

Sherlock finale trumped by Russian leak online

15 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Final episode of fourth series of Sherlock, which may be the last ever, is close to original stories despite recent criticism

Sherlock Holmes, the cleverest man in the world, and Donald Trump, who becomes Us president on Friday, may not obviously have much in common. Both, though, have had their crowning moments overshadowed by Moscow gossip.

Already known to be a chronic cocaine addict, the Baker Street detective is invulnerable to dossiers alleging personal misbehaviour, but the final episode of the fourth series of Sherlock – which may be the last ever – was leaked online in Russia at the weekend ahead of Sunday night’s heavily embargoed screening on BBC1. The programme makers pleaded on Twitter with viewers elsewhere not to join the spoiling.

Sherlock, and the musical highlights of Sherlock Holmes

15 January 2017 5:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sean Wilson Jan 16, 2017

From the BBC's Sherlock, through Disney, Hans Zimmer and Young Sherlock Holmes: we salute the music of Mr Holmes...

Few characters have enjoyed as much reinvention as Arthur Conan Doyle's sleuth Sherlock Holmes, an enduring icon who is as much bound up with the history of cinema (and indeed stage, TV and radio) as he is with literature. Indeed, adaptations of Holmes stories stretch right the way back to the earliest days of film at the start of the 20th century. Fittingly enough given Holmes' penchant for a violin serenade, the musical scores to his adventures are as richly varied as the outcomes to his mysteries are unexpected. Here are Holmes' musical highlights, from Buster Keaton through to Benedict Cumberbatch.

Sherlock Jr. (1924)

Not, strictly speaking, a Sherlock movie but as the title implies, the legacy of the character casts a long shadow over Buster Keaton's silent classic. »

Sick of Sherlock? Elementary has all the Holmes comforts you need

Related: Elementary – box set review

On New Year’s Day, British viewers sat down to watch a new episode of Sherlock – the 11th broadcast since its launch in 2010 – and sighed as they realised that the show they loved had transmogrified into a programme all about the secret history of Sherlock Holmes’s best friend’s wife. “What happened to the mysteries?” they cried. “Isn’t this supposed to be a crime show? Oh Christ, we’re not getting another wedding episode, are we?”

This review contains spoilers.

In Thomas HarrisThe Silence Of The Lambs, Hannibal Lecter tells Clarice Starling “Nothing happened to me […] I happened. You can’t reduce me to a set of influences.” It’s an elegant, invincible line, one that waves away the tricks of their trades as psychiatrist and FBI agent, and paints Lecter as pure evil.

Twenty-five years later, Harris scrapped all that to explain in Hannibal Rising that Lecter is what he is because Nazis ate his sister. »

See Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly’s Holmes and Watson shooting on location in London

10 January 2017 1:12 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Emma Withington

Back in 2016 it was announced that dynamic comedy duo Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly would reunite for the first time since Step Brothers (2008), as Holmes and Watson.

Holmes and Watson is set to take on the sleuth in a whole new, comedic light. With Etan Cohen in the Director’s chair (Get Hard, Men in Black 3) and our long lost duo in the title roles, we can only imagine the pandemonium that will ensue as this project develops.

The film is currently on location in Greenwich, home of time and frequent location choice for various period productions; not forgetting the occasional superhero film, such as Thor: The Dark World (2013). This is not the first rodeo for Greenwich University and the Royal Naval College as far as Holmes adaptations are concerned, oh no, Sherlock Holmes a Game of Shadows (2011) was also shot here.

Oscars 2017: Does Aaron Taylor-Johnson Stand a Chance at Best Supporting Actor After Winning the Golden Globe?

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

While last night’s Golden Globes unequivocally belonged to La La Land, it started out with one of the biggest shocks of this awards season: Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for Nocturnal Animals. Does this surprise upset mean the British thespian is gearing up for winning Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars?

It’s important to first note that even Taylor-Johnson’s Golden Globes nomination wasn’t expected by most awards season prognosticators and, if someone from Tom Ford’s latest flick were to have a shot at the trophy, their money was placed on co-star Michael Shannon. And when it came to winning most had their money on Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), Jeff Bridges (Hell or High Water), Dev Patel (Lion), or even Simon Helberg (Florence Foster Jenkins) — not Taylor-Johnson. »

Why I'm so disappointed by gutless Sherlock's big twist

10 January 2017 3:13 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Will Sherlock commit to this week’s cliffhanger? Going on the past, the answer will be a resounding, cowardly no – and then we’ll all feel cheated

Spoiler alert: don’t read on if you haven’t watched The Lying Detective, which aired on 8 January.

Until the epilogue, Sunday’s episode of Sherlock contained only a scattering of twists. We discovered that Sherlock Holmes had only become strung out on heroin to cheer up John Watson a bit, and that he only did that because Watson’s James Bond wife told him to from beyond the grave, and that the capture and arrest of Toby Jones’ worst serial killer in history was just a handy byproduct of that. So far so normal.

1. The episode’s very first shot of a smoking gun – which we assume is that of Vivian Norbury in The Six Thatchers as remembered by John Watson – is actually the gun shot at John Watson by Eurus Holmes in the episode’s final shot. (The same shot also features in the series four opening credits and is briefly edited in to the scene of Sherlock and ‘Faith’ sitting by the Thames after he’s thrown her gun into the water.)
