Kingsman: The Secret Service movie review: forgets its manners

5 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I cannot recall a film that left me with such a sour taste in my mouth by its end. Does the movie deliberately defy itself with obnoxious intent? I’m “biast” (pro): love Colin Firth

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer did not inspire hope

I have not read the source material

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

This is not an gentlemanly movie.

Now, most movies are not very gentlemanly, and this isn’t necessarily a problem — except, perhaps, to those of us who lament the passing of true gentlemanliness as a thing a dude might aspire to. But it’s a honking huge problem forKingsman: The Secret Service. Because this movie makes such a big deal about how gentlemanliness is a thing a dude must exude, certainly if he wants to become a member of the titular elite society of gentleman spies and »

Jackman and Margeson’s score for Kingsman delivers nail biting action sequences while emphasizing the heart of the film which lie in the relationship between Firth and Egerton. The deep brass notes exemplify the grandeur of the secret society and the »

The Best Comic Book and Graphic Novel Adaptations

29 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is the latest comic book adaptation to hit screens. Loosely based on Mark Millar and Dave Gibbon’s The Secret Service, the film tells the story of an experienced secret agent recruiting a young protégé to join the ranks of his espionage agency.

Matthew Vaughn directs a stellar cast which features the likes of Samuel L Jackson, Colin Firth, Michael Caine and Mark Strong, as well as a few cameos. Vaughn has been at the helm of Kick Ass and X-men: First Class, so he is certainly no stranger to comic book adaptations. In honor of Vaughn and the release of Kingsman: The Secret Service we look back at some of the best comic book and graphic novel adaptations. With a surge of superhero films we decided to go for the not so obvious choices. »

Samuel L. Jackson is in every  movie, right? Wrong! But he is in more than most. And from what I'm hearing Samuel L.

Review: Dope - The Biggest Hit at Sundance '15 So Far

27 January 2015 3:45 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Writer-director Rick Famuyiwa begins his latest film, Dope, by throwing the three different definitions of the word up on screen:

an illicit, habit-forming, or narcotic druga stupid personA slang word that describes something that is extremely cool

Typically, if someone begins a speech with “Webster’s dictionary defines yada yada as blah blah blah,” you’d be completely justified if you spent the rest of their speech day-dreaming. However, you'll be doing yourself a great disservice if you tune out while watching this film, or miss it when it’s properly released. Famuyiwa does indeed incorporate all three meanings of the title into this fast-paced gem that takes the typical coming-of-age high-school comedy and masterfully weaves in the kind of visual flair and storytelling devices normally only found in heist movies.

Dope follows Malcolm, Jib, and Diggy, three high school outcasts from Inglewood, California who are obsessed with ‘90s hip »

Fantastic Four: what we know about the reboot

27 January 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've now had our first glimpse at Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Here’s everything we know about 2015’s most mysterious blockbuster.

We’ve known about the Fantastic Four reboot for quite some time, but that hasn’t stopped it being a mysterious project which, until this week, we knew next to nothing about.

We knew that the cast, director and groundwork of the original 2005 film, and its 2007 sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer, had been firmly thrown out in favour of a new visual look, some reimagining of the source material and an altogether more modern take on the Marvel comics property. Beyond that, many facets of the film remained a mystery. 

Yet the reveal of the new trailer finally gave us a few more specifics. And here's what we know so far...

Is Kingsman the most conservative comedy this century?

27 January 2015 9:05 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Contemptuous of women and the working class, with an environmentalist baddie and an establishment hero, this James Bond pastiche is a throwback in more ways than one

World leaders have been exploding a lot lately. In December North Korea brought Sony Pictures to its knees over their planned release of The Interview, a film that notoriously ends with Kim Jong-un’s head detonating when hit by a tank shell. Kingsman: The Secret Service concludes in similar fashion, but on this occasion the exploding head belongs not to a brutal dictator but the world’s most famous liberal politician. The scene, which takes place during a lavish montage of expiring dignitaries, acts as a grisly exclamation point at the end of one of the most sustained acts of right-wing film-making since its jingoistic 1980s action heyday.

Kingsman is the fifth feature-length effort from producer-turned-director Matthew Vaughn, whose filmography also includes Layer Cake, »

'X-Men: Apocalypse': New Jean Grey Will Emulate Famke Janssen

26 January 2015 6:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The cast for X-Men: Apocalypse just got bigger last week, with the additions of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and Alexandra Shipp as Storm, alongside Oscar Isaac as the villainous Apocalypse. There is still very little we know about the story, except that it is set in the 1980s and will bring an end to the trilogy started by X-Men: First Class and last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Access Hollywood caught up with Sophie Turner, who revealed how she learned that she won the role as Jean Grey, although it seems to have cost her a different, unspecified gig.

"I was getting out of the car to walk in to the audition. And then my agent started ringing and she was like 'Have you heard the news?' 'No, what news?' Then she was like 'Check your Twitter'. So then I checked it »

Kingsman: The Secret Service review

26 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A Colin Firth action sequence, a Mark Hamill cameo and a lisping Samuel L. Jackson. What's not to love?

Some people sit back and complain about the state of comic book movies, and then carry on making films in the same vein. For the third time in his career, director Matthew Vaughn has actively gone out of his way to do something about it.

The first such occasion was the commendably Daily Mail-baiting Kick-Ass, a film that beneath its energy, ideas, music and fruity language had real substance to it, and plenty of rewatch value. Oh, and an 18 certificate. I fondly remember such things.

Then his X-Men film, X-Men: First Class, put character firmly at the fore, at least until the special effects moved in for a large chunk of the final act. In both cases, there was a real sense that Vaughn had taken the films on because there »

Matthew Vaughn interview: Kingsman, X-Men, Stardust 2, 007

25 January 2015 11:47 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Kingsman, the moment he was set to direct Casino Royale, to the lost Stardust 2, here's our chat with director Matthew Vaughn...

It's no secret that Matthew Vaughn was, under the original plan, going to move on to X-Men: Days Of Future Past after his success with X-Men: First Class. But instead, the director of Kick-Ass, Stardust and Layer Cake opted for Kingsman: The Secret Service instead.

In a chat ahead of the release of the new film, he tells us about why, about queuing up for effects shots, and the Stardust sequel that never was...

When I saw the film you came in and did a brief introduction. You described it then as the film you're most proud of doing to date. But why? Given some of the films you've made in the past, what made this one so special to you?

Because it was a culmination of everything »

X-Men: Apocalypse – Everything You Need To Know

23 January 2015 11:39 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Instagram

It seemed like the X-Men had narrowly avoided a dystopian future thanks to all the time travel hoo-ha of Days Of Future Past. Turns out, they just put themselves on a path to Apocalypse. The character Apocalypse, that is. Who’s whole bag is bringing about the actual apocalypse. So yeah, things still look pretty dire.

After rescuing what looked like a flagging series off the back of the Brett Ratner-directed third film and a couple of bad Wolverine spin-offs, Days Of Future Past picked up where superior prequel X-Men: First Class left off, and did a damn fine job of it. The box office returns were pretty impressive and all.

Which is why Fox wasted no time in greenlighting a sequel, due for release in 2016. Such is the nature of modern blockbusters, though – and especially ones based off of existing comics – that even with that date still a year off, »
