Bridge of Spies movie review: the lawyer who went out in the Cold War

27 November 2015 9:18 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Presents American hypocrisy in defense of America with the snorting derision it warrants, while also being a gripping and intense Cold War thriller. I’m “biast” (pro): love Spielberg and Hanks

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Don’t go Boy Scout on me.” “Don’t go bleeding-heart on me.” These are the things that people say to Tom Hanks as Jimmy Stewart as lawyer James Donovan in Steven Spielberg’s based-on-fact Bridge of Spies. They say these things because Donovan is insisting upon mounting an actual legal defense when he is asked to represent an accused Soviet spy in Cold War America, instead of participating in the show trial everyone else — including the judge — is putting on. America throwing out American ideals as soon as they become inconvenient and yet somehow still twisted into a defense of The American Way »

Stonewall – The Review

24 September 2015 9:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Well, we’re past the Summer blockbusters and heading right into the serious, somber cinema season, that time when the studios dream of top ten lists and Oscar gold. What better way to make those award fantasies come true than to hop in the movie “way-back” time machine and witness a most historic birth. But we’re not looking back on the birth of a person, rather the birth of a movement, a concentrated effort to effect change for a minority. Almost a year ago, we saw the civil rights movement take root in the acclaimed Selma. And in a few weeks, we’ll see the story of  how the women’s equality movement began in Suffragette. So, now the movies offer up a look at a true flash point in the struggle of the Lgbt community for justice, specifically the 1969 riot at the NYC nightspot called Stonewall. So, what »

Review: Roland Emmerich insults both audience and subject in rotten 'Stonewall'

23 September 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm sure they meant well. And by "they," I mean director Roland Emmerich, screenwriter Jon Robin Baitz, and the sprawling ensemble cast who all worked to make a movie that commemorates the Stonewall riots in New York, one of the flashpoints of the gay rights movement in America. The idea of making a film that captures not only the community that found its activist voice that day but that also articulates the tensions and the atmosphere that made the riots feel so urgent and necessary in the first place is a good idea, and perhaps one day, someone will make that movie. Unfortunately, "Stonewall" is the anti-"Selma," a movie that not only fails to fully capture the energy and importance of a true event but that fails so completely as a film that it is almost impressive.

Review: Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall' Is Covered In A Thick Blanket Of Badness

23 September 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In 2011, the moviegoing public finally received a response to the burning question, “What could a personal film from Roland Emmerich possibly look like?” That answer came in the form of “Anonymous,” a madman’s speculation on the true origins of the corpus of writing popularly attributed to William Shakespeare that played it fast and loose with historical accuracy. And yet, even with this revealing glimpse into the obscurer nooks of the blockbuster maestro’s tortured psyche, hardcore Emmerich-heads yearned for a more intimate project from the notoriously spectacle-driven, largely apolitical filmmaker. “Stonewall,” the latest and most immediately revealing effort from the openly gay director, retains the freely interpretive relationship with historical facts witnessed in "Anonymous," but to decidedly more damaging ends. Emmerich reimagines the storied New York riots that ignited the queer rights movement with a cast of characters amalgamated from different real-life figures »

‘Stonewall’ Review: Roland Emmerich’s Historical Lgbt Drama Is the Other Kind of Disaster Movie

23 September 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

You can accuse Roland Emmerich of many shortcomings as a filmmaker, but “sluggishness” usually isn’t one of them. What a surprise, then, as “Stonewall” turgidly creeps its way through 129 minutes, that the brash zing of “White House Down,” “2012” and even the loony Shakespeare-was-a-fraud melodrama “Anonymous” is nowhere to be found. There’s certainly no faulting Emmerich and screenwriter Jon Robin Baitz for their good intentions in making a movie about the clash between Lgbt bar patrons and the NYPD that many consider to be the starting point of the modern gay rights movement.

Emmerich On "Independence Day" Sequel Aliens

22 September 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Production wrapped on the sequel to "Independence Day: Resurgence" the other week and the film's director Roland Emmerich would normally be well in the midst of editing at this point.

However, the filmmaker's schedule means he's taken time out from the editing room in the last few days to do press for his gay rights historical drama "Stonewall". During those rounds, he spoke with Collider about the ID4 follow-up and discussed how the alien threat we'll see in the new film will differ from that in the first movie:

"Well, it [the first film's aliens] is only like one of the hives, like kind of moving around. [Laughs] What we did this time, we tried to expand the universe, too. It's not as simple as the last one because you cannot make it as simple as the last one.

Also it's a little bit about what happened to our world when you know that they are coming back. »

'Independence Day 2' Will Expand the 'ID4' Universe

21 September 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has wrapped on 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel Independence Day: Resurgence, which is set for release on June 24, 2016, almost exactly 20 years after the original Independence Day hit theaters in 1996. While fans wait for the first full trailer to debut, director Roland Emmerich revealed new details in an interview with Collider. The official synopsis released this summer stated that humanity always knew the aliens would come back, and the director says that the aliens who were destroyed in the original movie were just one of the "hives."

"Well, it's only like one of the hives, like kind of moving around. [Laughs] What we did this time, we tried to expand the universe, too. It's not as simple as the last one because you cannot make it as simple as the last one. Also it's a little bit about what happened to our world when you know that they are coming back. »

Tiff Review: Roland Emmerich's Gay Rights Drama 'Stonewall'

Toronto Film Review: ‘Stonewall’

18 September 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Best known for such spectacle-driven blockbusters as “2012” and “The Day After Tomorrow,” Roland Emmerich has made his reputation exploiting audience’s anxieties over what the future may hold: What if a second ice age struck or a series of tidal waves wiped out most of mankind? With “Stonewall,” the openly gay director puts such speculative fantasy aside and opts to engage with a more intimate real-world crisis, using the sheer dynamism of 1969’s historic Greenwich Village uprising as a platform to address the epidemic of homelessness among Lgbtq youth, past and present. While it’s encouraging to see such a subject treated with the same grandiosity afforded alien invasions, particularly at a moment when gay rights hold such currency, representation-starved audiences deserve more than this problematic collection of stereotypes, which lacks the galvanizing power of such recent we-shall-overcome triumphs as “Selma” or “Milk,” and won’t draw anywhere near their numbers. »

Will Shakespeare’s Looking A Bit Shaky In New Bill Trailer

19 August 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Vertigo

Thanks to Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous, the status of “definitive farce detailing William Shakespeare’s origin” seemed forever locked. That might change though, with the release of a more intentionally amusing biopic, entitled Bill, this September.

Check out the trailer below.

Bill follows a young William Shakespeare adrift in the world. Trying and failing at a number of professions, Bill arbitrarily takes a stab at writing, but not everybody buys into his new literary vocation, as it leads him down a road peppered with spies, romance and high-ranking assassination plots.

Bill stars Mathew Baynton (The Wrong Mans) as The Bard, with support coming courtesy of comedy stalwarts Simon Farnaby (Your Highness), Rufus Jones (Holy Flying Circus) and Jim Howick (Peep Show). If you’re halfway familiar with the last decade of British comedy, you’ll definitely spot a face or two you know.

The trailer has a quintessentially British feel, »

First Trailer For Stonewall

4 August 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Before he went back to monument destroying aliens with Independence Day: Resurgence, director Roland Emmerich went behind the camera for Stonewall, which tells the story of the 1969 Stonewall riots, which took place outside The Stonewall Inn in New York, a famous gathering place for gay and transgender individuals, after it was raided by police. This event led to the Lgbt community’s decades long fight for equality. While he may be better known for blowing stuff up, Emmerich has shown he is a dab hand at drama with Anonymous, and he seems to be giving the heavy subject matter the justice it deserves. Released: September 25th  Synopsis: Stonewall is a drama about a fictional young man caught up during the 1969 Stonewall Riots. Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent’s home and flees to New York. »

Watch: Trailer for Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall', Set to Premiere at Tiff

4 August 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Roland Emmerich isn't always destroying the world in films such as 2012, The Day After Tomorrow and the upcoming sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence. No, every now and then he brings us something along the lines of The Patriot and Anonymous and with Stonewall it seems he's toning it down even a little more. Set to have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival before hitting theaters on Sept 25, Stonewall is a drama about a young man in New York caught up during the 1969 Stonewall Riots, a pivotal event widely considered the starting point for the modern gay civil rights movement. The film's cast includes Jeremy Irvine, Caleb Landry Jones, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Ron Perlman, Joey King and Karl Glusman. I've included both the first trailer and poster below, check 'em out and leave your thoughts in the comments below. sb id="1549239" height="360" width="640" »

Thn exclusive: Jeremy Irvine talks Roland Emmerich’s ‘Stonewall’

13 July 2015 1:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rising British actor Jeremy Irvine stars in just-released horror sequel The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death, which Thn recently talked to him about.

Being an in-demand name naturally means he has a few irons in the fire, the hottest of which is Stonewall, director Roland Emmerich‘s dramatization of the famous riots that had a profound impact on the way the gay community were perceived in the late Sixties.

It’s a project that’s clearly close to Jeremy’s heart and he gave us his views toward the tail end of our interview:

Thn: What have you got coming up next?

Jeremy Irvine: The next movie I’ve got coming out is called Stonewall, directed by Roland Emmerich, all about the gay rights revolution, which I’m very excited about.

Without generalizing, that sounds like quite an unusual subject matter for Roland Emmerich. I guess he »

Kate Beckinsale Slips On Black Latex Again for 'Underworld 5'

15 May 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm a fan of the Underworld franchise, though not Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which starred Rhona Mitra rather than franchise centerpiece Kate Beckinsale, though Beckinsale returned for 2012's Underworld Awakening, which wasn't half-bad, and now we learn she's coming on for one more as a fifth film has just been greenlit. Titled Underworld: Next Generation, Beckinsale will return as the werewolf hunting vampire Selene with Anna Foerster set to direct. Foerster is best known as Roland Emmerich's cinematographer on the likes of Anonymous and White House Down and is also attached to direct Source Code 2, though I'm not holding my breath for that film's release. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter that also says Insurgent star Theo James, who appeared briefly as fellow vampire David in Awakening, will reprise his role though James was asked about the possibility of returning earlier this year and told Digital Spy, »

'Point Break' Remake First Pictures, Bracey and Ramirez are Utah and Bodhi

22 April 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string »
