Barely Lethal review: “Mean Girls meets Kingsman, but not as good”

5 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Barely Lethal review: Despite it’s very different twist, Barely Lethal turns out to be just another teen movie. Barely Lethal review

Barely Lethal is the brand new movie from director Kyle Newman, who you may remember brought us that really rather good Fanboys a few years back – the film about the young guys that want to break into George Lucas’ home to screen The Phantom Menace? I really liked that. Following on from Fanboys, Newman worked on The Crazies TV show, and another couple of shorts projects before landing the gig to direct Barely Lethal, which can only be described as a cross between Mean Girls, Spy Kids, and well, Kingsman.

Scripted by John D’Arco, the film revolves around the character of Megan Walsh (Hailee Steinfeld), an orphaned teenager who was brought up by Samuel L. Jackson‘s Hardman, a mysterious figure who runs an organisation called the Prescott School for Girls, »

Movie Review – Barely Lethal (2015)

27 August 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Barely Lethal, 2015

Directed by Kyle Newman.

Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Thoman Mann, Dove Cameron, Rachael Harris, Jason Ian Drucker and Samuel L. Jackson.

Synopsis:

A teenage special ops agent coveting a “normal” adolescence fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school. She quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of high school is more challenging than international espionage.

Actress Hailee Steinfeld is seemingly everywhere now that her Hollywood stock is on the vertical up-and-up. After captivating audiences aged just 14 in The Coen Brothers’ excellent True Grit, the Californian actress has moved swiftly through film after film with fine performances in Begin Again, The Homesman and this summer’s Pitch Perfect 2 whose massive box-office success will no doubt see her return for a third aca-go-round. Still only 18, the world is her oyster but she takes a break from the musical word to get down-and-dirty in action-thriller-comedy Barely Lethal which, »

Former Coen Brothers Project 'To The White Sea' Moves On Without Them

25 August 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The writing was on the wall years ago when Ethan Coen, during press rounds for "True Grit," made it clear that the Coen Brothers' long brewing adaptation of James Dickey's "To The White Sea" was likely off the table. “I don’t think anything will happen with it. I mean we came just short of being able to get money for it and did come up short even with Brad Pitt basically doing it for free,” he said. The WWII adventure movie follows an air gunner shot down over Tokyo, unable to communicate due to unfamiliarity with the language, embarking on a dangerous and demanding journey back to Alaska. Essentially, it sounds like budget reasons (perhaps coupled with the fact that proposed star Brad Pitt didn't have much in the way of actual dialogue in the finished script) kiboshed the project. “Don’t set a movie in Tokyo during »

Looking back at Dennis Hopper's Colors

24 August 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In 1988, Dennis Hopper directed the controversial cop drama Colors, now reissued on Blu-ray. Ryan takes a look back at a gripping film...

By the spring of 1988, several high-profile cases had brought the gang violence in Los Angeles to national attention. The fatal shootings of an 18-year-old college student and her 12-year-old neighbour were, according to a newspaper report, the 113th and 114th gang-related murders to have occurred in La County since the start of the beginning of 1988. The previous year saw 387 people killed in gang-related incidents.

Against this backdrop came Colors, Dennis Hopper’s unflinching and disturbingly authentic crime drama starring Robert Duvall and Sean Penn. Some of the film’s harshest critics called it exploitative and voyeuristic - a calculated attempt to cash in on the real violence that was regularly making headlines. Colors’ detractors were given further fuel when reports began to circulate of violent incidents occurring in »

Brit Marling, Sam Worthington And Hailee Steinfeld Star In New Trailer For The Keeping Room

Called “a feminist western with bite” (Indiewire) and “a beautifully breathless revisionist western” midway between Cold Mountain and Straw Dogs (Little White Lies), anchored in the “bold and fearless” performances (Film School Rejects) delivered by its lead women,” Drafthouse Films has released a new trailer for The Keeping Room.

In this radically reimagined American Western set towards the end of the Civil War, Southerner Augusta (Brit Marling, Arbitrage, The East) encounters two renegade, drunken soldiers (Sam Worthington, Avatar & Kyle Soller, BBC’s “Poldark”) who are on a mission of pillage and violence.

New Trailer For The Keeping Room Reveals A Female Reinvention Of The Western

14 August 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

‘Point of view’ in cinematic storytelling is at the crux of the entire issue of equality and sexism in film. Its influence on popular culture – and, in turn, society as a whole – is routinely underestimated. The fact is that the majority of the narratives we watch on our screens are told from the point of view of white men – making their experience the ‘norm,’ and everything else marginal. This creates a skewed cultural perspective, and leads to a situation that reinforces a pervasive sense of entitlement – if your perspective were the only one regularly represented in the media, you would unconsciously assume it was the most important, too. This is why The Keeping Room is a vital film.

In reality, the perspective of white men is, of course, no more important than any other perspective – particularly considering that that point of view is actually in the minority in global terms. »

Ten Thousand Saints – The Review

It was the hair, at first I thought I would hate this movie because of the kid’s hair.  Allow me to explain, Jude is one messed up teenager (aren’t all teenagers messed up in the movies?)  At the very start we see his Father and Mother break up.  His Father,( Ethan Hawke: Gattaca), likes to grow marijuana in his green house, and that is where he sleeps when Mom kicks him out of the house.  Jude’s Father, Les, explains to young Jude,( Henry Keleman,) exactly what happened and how that will impact the future story.

Fast forward a few years and Jude, now played by Asa Butterfield, is a young man with troubles.  He and his best friend,( apparently his only friend,) Teddy (Avan Jogia) like to get high and listen to Hard Core Punk Rock. Through the early part of the movie Jude has one »

Hailee Steinfeld Releases ‘Love Myself’; It Means Just What You Think It Means

7 August 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hailee Steinfeld has an unusually long résumé for a teenager: The 18-year-old got an Oscar nomination for her role in 2010's True Grit (which she earned at 14), has modeled for Miu Miu, and is part of Taylor Swift's girl gang (she played the Trinity in Tay's "Bad Blood" video). That last bragging right seems to have inspired her latest career move. Earlier this year, Steinfeld added "singer" to her multihyphenate job title with a starring role in Pitch Perfect 2, and she hopes to make music more than just a hobby with a freshly inked record deal with Republic and a debut album in the works. After wooing the tween crowd beside Vine star Shawn Mendes on the acoustic reworking of his hit "Stitches," she's here to establish a fandom of her own with her album's first single, "Love Myself."

The Coen Brothers May Have Found Their Next Movie

6 August 2015 3:49 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Joel and Ethan Coen are best known for their original films, but they have quite a fantastic record with adapted works as well. Past titles include the amazing No Country For Old Men and the spellbinding True Grit - and now it appears as though the writer/directors are planning to expand this area of their resume with a live-action take on author Ross MacDonald's Black Money. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. has optioned the rights to the 1960s crime novel, and while the Coens are currently only attached to write the script, they are viewing it as a potential directing vehicle as well. The film is going to be shepherded by famed producer Joel Silver - who knows a few things about making crime/detective movies, having previously been partially responsible for films like Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout. First released in 1966, Black Money was one »
