Sherlock: Series 1 (review)

31 December 2011 10:31 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The second series of Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’s brilliant, brilliant Sherlock is about to start tomorrow, and so my hand is forced: I must finally write about the first series. The reason I’ve put it off isn’t simple procrastination. The reason I’ve put it off is because every time I contemplate the notion of sitting down and writing about it, I am overcome with a dread that anything I write will reduce it to something smaller and boringer and less than the utterly fantastic thing that it is. I love these three movie-length episodes to a degree that’s sort of terrifying. I never tire of rewatching them. Every time I’ve imagined that this was the moment in which I would finally write about them, I used that as an excuse to watch them again, so it’s been like four or five go-rounds at least so far. »

Friday Box-Office: 'Mission 4' #1, 'War Horse' Limps into Sixth and 'Iron Lady' Opens Nicely

31 December 2011 8:47 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

By Monday, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol will have surpassed Mission: Impossible III's $134 million domestic take. Ghost Protocol brought in $10.7 million on Friday and should land just shy of $30 million for the three-day and end up with something around $40 million for the four-day holiday weekend. It's also closing in quickly on the third film's $397 million worldwide take as it currently sits at $304 million. How will the success of this film be judged as it eyes the $180 million the first film brought in in 1996 ($325m adjusted for inlfation) and the $215 million the second film brought in in 2000 ($318m adjusted for inflation)? It's obviously a money earner, but it is the kind of success that will have Paramount rushing to get a fourth film in the making or will we be looking at four years or more before Jeremy Renner takes over for Ethan Hunt? In second, Sherlock Holmes: Game »

12 Most Awesome One-Sided Cinematic Fight Scenes

30 December 2011 4:27 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

If I had to pick two things that I just can’t get enough of in films, it would have to be a good underdog story and gratuitous physical violence. It is only natural then that I would build a humble list of some of my favorite moments in cinema where the two are combined. When I think about what makes a fight particularly one-sided, it actually has less to do with the amount of people that the hero is up against and more about the hero’s strengths, or rather lack thereof. But then there’s always going to be an ‘awesome’ factor to think about, because when it is all said and done the hero usually triumphs against the odds – so the means in which they do such a thing is very important to me; being badass certainly has its merits, but in most cases, being creative is far more impressive. 12.

Year In Review: The Bestest and Baddest Villains of 2011

30 December 2011 11:45 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As we all sit here at Reject HQ, gathered around an absurdly long, but incredibly imposing, table discussing what to do with the nuclear missiles we just “creatively appropriated” from a breakaway Russian republic, it occurs to us that 2011 was a great year to be bad. For every boring, dopey, goody-good hero that popped up on the silver screen, there was a brilliant, super cool, woefully misunderstood villain doing everything he/she/it could to thwart the zero hero at every turn. So when Supreme Commander #1, better known to the world (and those pesky Avengers so they’ll stop blasting our lair) as Neil Miller, issued an official order (delivered by a specially-trained, fire-breathing, gun-toting alligator who lives in the moat) to construct a supersonic death ray…that assignment went to Kate “Femme Fatale” Erbland. But then I got asked to do this list of the 20 Best Villains of 2011, a decided promotion from my usual position as »

‘The Dictator’ starring Sacha Baron Cohen – trailer review

30 December 2011 9:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Dictator

Directed by: Larry Charles

Starring: Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly

Rating: Not Yet Rated

Release Date: May 11, 2012

Trailer Score: 5/10

Thoughts by Tsr: The first time Sacha Baron Cohen and Larry Charles teamed up they delivered the outrageously funny Borat. Next they came together for Brüno, a film I liked, but certainly not one that reached the highs of their previous effort. So when I heard they would be teaming up again in a comedy that would have Sacha Baron Cohen playing an insane dictator, naturally I was excited. That’s why it hurts so much to say that I did not enjoy most of this trailer for The Dictator.

I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting, but this certainly wasn’t it. To me, this almost feels like a character that Adam Sandler would play. Even more disheartening is that it reminds me »

'M:i-4' To Lead Final Weekend of 2011

30 December 2011 8:22 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Audiences looking to catch up on the crush of holiday movies have another chance over New Year's weekend, which officially qualifies as the final weekend of 2011.Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol has easily held the top spot for the past eight days, and should manage to maintain a lead over Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and claim first place for the second-straight weekend. Through the end of the four-day holiday frame (Friday-Monday), Ghost Protocol will likely have passed Mission: Impossible III's $134 million total.Once again, Sherlock Holmes and Alvin and the Chipmunks should round out the Top Three on the box office chart. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows passed the $100 million mark on Wednesday, becoming the first December 2011 release to reach this plateau. Despite ongoing solid grosses, though, neither Sherlock nor Alvin have any chance of reaching their predecessors' totals ($209 million and $219.6 million, respectively). This is a »

Benedict Cumberbatch: I Get Typecast as 'Posh' Characters

30 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News

Benedict Cumberbatch -- you know, that tall, angular fellow in 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,' 'War Horse' and the BBC's Sherlock Holmes -- says he often gets typecast as rich and upper-class. Cumberbatch told Radio Times, "Being a posh actor in England, you can't escape class-typing, from whatever side you look at it. I realized quite early on that, although I wasn't trying to make a career specialty of it, I was playing slightly asexual, sociopathic intellectuals." That must be why, as his 'Sherlock' co-star Martin Freeman explains, his nickname is "Cumberlord."

Box office preview: 'Mission: Impossible' won't lose its grip over New Year's weekend

29 December 2011 3:03 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

With no new wide releases this New Year’s weekend, the box office is going to look very much like it did over the Christmas weekend. In fact, a number of movies may perform a little bit better this weekend due to the fact that Christmas Eve, a typically slow day at the box office, landed on a Saturday last week. Furthermore, since 893 movies were released the last couple of weeks, audiences should be eager to catch up with the many films they haven’t seen yet.

Here are my predictions for the three-day weekend (Friday to Sunday):

Domestic Box Office 2011: Fewest Tickets Sold Since 1995, But Dont Blame It on Sequels

29 December 2011 11:27 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Daniel Radcliffe in the biggest domestic hit of 2011: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 In 2011, Hollywood movies should earn the major studios $10.2 billion at the North American box office. That's down 3.5% from 2010, according to Hollywood.com. An estimated 1.28 billion tickets have been sold this year, which represents a 4.4% decline from 2010 and the lowest figure since 1995, the year of the talking pig Babe and Mel Gibson's Braveheart, when admissions totaled 1.26 billion. Among the suggested reasons for the downturn there are some that make perfect sense and some that are ludicrous. The weak U.S. economy matched with high ticket prices is almost undeniably keeping people away from movie houses. In fact, that has happened in the past, most notably during the height of the Great Depression in the early 1930s, when the majority of the big Hollywood studios posted heavy losses. Indeed, several almost went bankrupt. The »

Benedict Cumberbatch recalls "thrilling" 'Sherlock' reaction

29 December 2011 11:05 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Benedict Cumberbatch has reminisced fondly over the initial success of Sherlock. Cumberbatch, who debuted on screen as Sherlock Holmes in the BBC drama in July 2010, recalls watching the first episode as it went out with writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. "All the Twittery stuff started to happen,' he told Metro. "We were trending, which is apparently brilliant. "And by the end of it I thought there would be people abseiling into the garden just to have a peek at us because this thing had exploded that night. It was thrilling." The star, 35, added: "There was an amazing (more) »

BBC’s Sherlock Series 2 Trailer

29 December 2011 9:38 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

While reactions to Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows have been even more mixed than the first one, the early buzz on series 2 of BBC's Sherlock series continues to be strong. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman return as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson in a modern setting, this time with three more 90-minute episodes based on the stories A Scandal in Bohemia, The Hound of the Baskervilles and The Final Problem. The Final Problem is significant in that it is the story that focuses heavily on Holmes' archenemy Professor Moriarty. Series 2 will be premiering on the BBC on New Year's Day at 8:10 pm... could there be a better way to ring in the new year? Although it will not be airing on PBS in the U.S. until May, I'm sure that hardcore fans will find other means of watching these episodes. A handful of »

My favourite film: Chinatown

28 December 2011 1:43 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Paul Macinnes continues our writer's favourite film series with the movie that left him chilled and overwhelmed – Roman Polanski's detective tale that exploded the genre conventions

Does this review do the film justice, or is it case dismissed? File your own report here or join in the comments section below

Chinatown is a detective story. It's set in Los Angeles, like many of the best are, and at first glance you could even mistake it for a tribute to the city. Roman Polanski's film escorts you around it, encourages you to bathe in the rich Californian light and take in the lush vistas. It's only at the end you realise the tour has been slowly, almost casually, ushering you into a room containing the most depraved human wickedness imaginable. Chinatown is definitely my favourite film.

Growing up, I spent a lot of time with private detectives. After teething on the Hardy Boys, »

Downey Jr. Dedicated To Completing Wing Chun 'Apprenticeship'

27 December 2011 2:01 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Robert Downey, Jr. is dedicated to earning his brown sash in the martial art of Wing Chun and he is halfway there after eight years of the strict discipline.

The Sherlock Holmes star works out with his sifu whenever he can and insists he can at least boast he's a good apprentice.

The actor tells Men's Fitness magazine, "I'm testing for the brown sash next. I've been doing it for eight years and I am now just approaching the halfway mark, grading-wise, which is great.

"That is an apprenticeship. Doing something for a year or two and being a black belt, to me, is something else. I also respect it and I am sure you have to work for it, but an apprenticeship takes a very long time.

"I guess in another eight to 10 years, I might know what I'm doing." »

Downey, Jr. Devoted To His Kittens

27 December 2011 8:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Robert Downey, Jr. has become a devoted stray cat lover after vowing never to have a rescue pet in his home.

The Sherlock Holmes star made his animal lover wife Susan promise never to bring a pet home, but now he can't imagine life without his kittens Monty and Dart.

He tells Men's Fitness magazine, "I would kill for these young, sweet little feline souls, these two boys. I would protect them with my life.

"Eighteen months ago, I'm saying, 'I don't want any rescue pets within 100 yards of either of my residences, I'm sorry. I don't want some, like, tripod (three-legged pet), abused animal.' I was adamantly opposed to the whole idea.

"I've become one of those people where the missus is like, 'They don't want to see iPhone pictures of our kittens right now. Stop it.'

"And I can't watch those commercials (for animal cruelty prevention) any more. They kill me." »

More BBC Sherlock Season 2 Promo Images

More BBC Sherlock Season 2 Promo Images

It’s seems like just yesterday I was getting jazzed over the latest video teaser for Steven Moffat’s Sherlock from BBC, and now my excitement can continue to grow with the promotional release of several new images from the second series’ three episode run. The images are quite careful so as not to reveal anything too spoilery. In fact, I would say you could gather very little of what’s to come for Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman) simply by studying these pictures. Then again, if you’re half as good a detective as Mr. Holmes, you might notice something I didn’t.

They come from the upcoming episodes “A Scandal in Belgravia”, “The Hounds of Baskerville” and “The Reichenbach Fall” to air on January 1, 8 and 15 respectively. We have some iconic characters being adapted for this modern take of Holmes. »

Robert Downey Jr. On the Physicality of Playing Iron Man In The Avengers & Iron Man 3

26 December 2011 4:41 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Covering the January/February 2012 issue of Men's Fitness magazine, inside, Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. commented on the physical preparations surrounding his titular role in Sherlock Holmes, the forthcoming Avengers movie, and his 'Tony Stark' reprisal in Iron Man 3. Check out the magazine excerpt below. "I guess I had some notion about [being an action hero]," he says. "I think I wanted to be able to look good and defend myself and all that stuff. I've always really enjoyed that genre, but I mean, It's pretty outlandish. I'm not particularly tall or strong or fast or aggressive. Yet, I'm not faking it. To me, it's a cosmic chuckle." The magazine further suggests that Downey Jr.'s training for Avengers meant working out at least 12 hours a week, including strenge training, martial arts with Oram, Tracy Anderson Method workouts, and yoga with his good friend and instructor Vinnie Marino of Yoga Works.

'M:i-4' Sizzles Over Solid Christmas Weekend

26 December 2011 1:30 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

After typically slow earnings on Christmas Eve the box office came roaring back to life on Christmas Day, and the studios are expecting this surge to continue throughout Monday. Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol easily topped the charts for the four-day weekend, while Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked had decent holds following their middling debuts. The only clear winner among the new releases was War Horse, which managed to nearly crack the Top 5 despite opening on Sunday. Based on studio estimates, the four-day weekend will end up at over $201 million, or up around 10 percent from the same four-day period last year.Mission: Impossible scored an estimated $46.2 million from Friday to Monday for a total of $78.6 million. While it's still lagging behind all three prior Mission: Impossible movies, it's obviously worth noting that those movies were released during May, when grosses are much more front-loaded, »
