Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation movie review: familiar yet fresh

27 July 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Works for your appreciation with gasp-inducing action sequences and an ethos that has fun with its legacy while moving in a new direction. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the previous film in the series

I’m “biast” (con): really would like to see some new stories

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

If we simply must keep getting the same movies over and over and over again — and that is not a concession that this status quo is unchangeable — they need to be at least as good as Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Though perhaps with less convoluted punctuation in their titles.

Have we see this all before? Yes… and no. Spy action thrillers should be a dime a dozen instead of $21/£18 a pop in IMAX, but ubiquitous they certainly are. Globetrotting gunplay by agents with cool gadgets and a particular set of skills are utterly »

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are quickly becoming the Burns and Allen of this decade, having already appeared in three movies together.

It also marks the third collaboration between the pair, co-star Robert De Niro, and director David O. Russell.

Joy&#160is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, »

Madame Bovary movie review: why woman why cry?

11 June 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A cold, sterile film, bereft of the spirit and danger Gustave Flaubert’s groundbreaking novel demands. I’m “biast” (pro): love Mia Wasikowska

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

It’s kind of ironic, but if you want a sense of the stifling, dull life young Emma Bovary desires escape from, in her early-18th-century rural French countryside, this rendition of Gustave Flaubert’s groundbreaking novel Madame Bovary does a pretty good — if unintentional — job of it. Not even the awesome Mia Wasikowska (Maps to the Stars) can save this tepid and charmless adaptation, from director Sophie Barthes, which is a real shame, because it’s a wonderful classic tale of how the things the world told (and still tells) women we should be happy with — a reliable husband; a nice home — simply »

Aussies hotter for Entourage than the Yanks

8 June 2015 3:08 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

At first glance it may seem Australian cinemagoers are keener to see Entourage than audiences in the Us.

The feature spin-off of the series that ran for eight seasons on HBO opened at No. 1 in Australia, fetching $3.4 million last weekend and almost $4.1 million with previews.

Contrast that with the Us where the film starring Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara,. Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven entered in fourth spot with a lousy $US10.2 million in three days and $17.6 million since the launch last Wednesday.

To be fair, writer-producer-director Doug Ellin.s comedy was flattened by a steam-roller in the Us: Melissa McCarthy.s Spy, which bowed at No. 1 with $29 million.

Here, the Paul Feig-directed Spy pocketed nearly $2 million in its third frame, advancing to a lucrative $9.9 million.

The only other wide release in Oz, Cameron Crowe.s Aloha, rang up $1.47 million and $1.8 million with previews, a mediocre debut considering »

The rise of Bradley Cooper: From Sex and the City to American Sniper

4 June 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Oscar nominee Bradley Cooper has become a huge Hollywood star in recent years. Unlike many top actors, who seem to burst onto the scene, Cooper slipped into our collective consciousness over time, moving from minor TV roles to cult movies until he was a bona fide blockbuster.

With the arrival of his latest hit American Sniper in Sky Store, we look back over the fascinating rise of Bradley Cooper:

The early years

As an unknown actor, Cooper made his television debut in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance in Sex and the City in 1999. His first significant role was opposite Jennifer Garner in Jj Abrams's Alias from 2001-06, not as Sydney Bristow's secret agent love interest but as her mild-mannered and slightly awkward reporter friend.

In 2008, he starred in sinister horror film The Midnight Meat Train, a story of a photographer who becomes obsessed with a New York City serial killer called the 'Subway Butcher'. »

Aloha – The Review

Summer’s settling in, the kids are out of school, so how about a vacation? Or at least a visit to the multiplex to take in a very popular vacation spot. And you wouldn’t be leaving the good ole’ Us of A! I’m referring to our 50th state, Hawaii. So who will you be traveling with on this cinematic stay in the Pacific’s paradise? Well, it’s a gaggle of true, “big deal” Hollywood actors and actresses. So, was it the mild temps and gorgeous beaches that lured this impressive cast here? It didn’t hurt, but the main lure may have been the chance to work with the celebrated author/director Cameron Crowe. After leaving the pages of Rolling Stone magazine, he contributed the script for the seminal 80’s teen comedy/drama Fast Times At Ridgemont High. When he took on directing in 1989, he made a »

Bradley Cooper Set to Play Recurring Character on CBS’s Limitless

13 May 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There may be no more reliable leading actor working in Hollywood today than Bradley Cooper, who recently led Clint Eastwood's excellent, woefully misunderstood mega-hit American Sniper and provided the voice of Rocket Raccoon in some movie called Guardians of the Galaxy. This year, he's already been seen in the slightly underrated Serena and will lead both Cameron Crowe's Aloha and David O. Russell's Joy. On top of this, he will be co-starring in Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp and, as Deadline has reported, will be featured in a recurring supporting role in CBS's full-series adaptation of Limitless, the 2011 supernatural thriller starring Cooper. As reported awhile ago, Cooper will be producing the series as well, which casts relative newcomer Jake McDormand as Brian Finch, a young man who discovers and starts taking Nzt, a drug that unlocks untapped potential in the human brain.
