Death by China Movie Review

Title: Death by China Director: Peter Navarro An alarmist nonfiction film in the mode of the Oscar-winning “An Inconvenient Truth” or debt-busting docs “I Want Your Money” and “I.O.U.S.A.,” director Peter Navarro’s “Death by China” targets what it deems the most urgent problem facing America today – our country’s increasingly destructive economic trade relationship with a rapidly rising China. There’s an impassioned level of energy here, and certainly the weight and force of much educated opinion. But like a teenager whose emotionality trumps their ability to rationally and cogently articulate an argument, “Death by China” is a bit too manic, scattershot and overheated to impart its case with surgical precision. It feels, by [ Read More ]

Ricky Gervais to voice Mole in The Wind in the Willows adaptation

'I had Ricky in mind for this role from the inception of the project,' says director behind new take on Kenneth Grahame's classic

Ricky Gervais is to voice the character of Mole in a new live-action/animatronic version of The Wind in the Willows. Directed by Ray Griggs, whose previous credits include a superhero comedy called Super Capers and a documentary titled I Want Your Money (both unreleased in the UK), the latest adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's pastoral classic will be penned by Bill Marsilii, who wrote time-travelling crime-solving Denzel Washington vehicle Deja Vu.

"It's a natural fit to have an iconic British actor star in an iconic British tale," Griggs said. "I had Ricky in mind for this role from the inception of this project." Mole is the peaceable home-lover whose boredom with his spring cleaning triggers an adventure with Badger, Ratty and Toad. Other casting has yet to be announced.

Gervais Wants to Make Us Happy With “Willows” Voiceover

Ricky Gervais will voice the lead character of Mole in “The Wind in the Willows,” the live-action/animatronic indie feature directed by Ray Griggs (”I Want Your Money”) through his Rg Entertainment banner. Radar Pictures topper Ted Field (”The Last Samurai”) has come aboard the project as a producer. More voice cast will be announced shortly. Bill Marsilii (”Deja Vu”) penned the adaptation of the story by Kenneth Grahame. “Willows” centers on a quartet of talking animals — Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad– in a story that mixes adventure, morality and camaraderie. In the Marsilii script, the animals join forces to save their land from a sinister plot that threatens to destroy the uneasy truce between the peaceful animals of the Willows and what remains of Mankind.

Ricky Gervais to Voice Mole in ‘The Wind in the Willows’

British wit Ricky Gervais, who has appeared in such kid-friendly fare as Night at the Museum and Stardust, will voice the mild-mannered Mole in the latest Wind in the Willows adaptation.

An independently produced feature, Wind in the Willows will be helmed by Ray Griggs (I Want Your Money), who spoke to Variety about Gervais’ involvement: “It’s a natural fit to have an iconic British actor star in an iconic British tale…I had Ricky in mind for this role from the inception of the project.”

The script, penned by Déjà vu scribe Bill Marsilii, follows Mole, Rat, Badger and Toad as they “join forces to save their land from a sinister plot that threatens to destroy the uneasy truce between the peaceful animals of the Willows and what remains of Mankind.”

In this live-action adaptation, the animals in question will be animatronics created by Peter Jackson’s heralded visual effects company,

Ricky Gervais To Voice Mole In The Wind In The Willows

Ricky Gervais, the marmite comedian, loved and loathed in equal measure. We personally love the guy’s work here at Owf, and my iPod in particular has basically become an exclusive Gervais/Merchant/Pilkie audio player. Anyway, no-one could accuse him of laziness. He’s is always busying himself, whether it be writing new stuff for telly, stand-up, film, podcasts, audiobooks, producing, generally winding up his round-headed, real-life Homer Simpson (Karl) and now he can add woodland creature to his ever increasing list of achievements.

Variety say Gervais will voice the lead character Mole in Rg Entertainment’s live action/animatronic adaptation of the beloved childrens tale The Wind In The Willows written by Kenneth Grahame and adapted countless times across all mediums. The movie was conceived with the hope Gervais would agree to voice Mole, and he has.

Arthouse Audit: 'N-Secure' Insecure But Leads, 'Boy' Goes 'Nowhere'...

While it was comparatively unheralded prior to release, N-Secure managed to easily top all limited releases in its debut weekend. Waiting for "Superman" had another solid showing, and John Lennon biopic Nowhere Boy expanded its way up the chart. Tea Party documentary I Want Your Money was unable to grab much cash from audiences, while Clint Eastwood's Hereafter had a strong limited . N-Secure opened to $1.17 million at 486 locations, which was good for 14th place on the overall weekend chart. The drama had a poor $2,400 per-theater average. This was a recent pick-up for Freestyle Releasing, and it yielded the distributor's biggest opening since The Collector from last July. Waiting for "Superman" nearly doubled its theater count to 182 and was up 16 percent to $742,725. This was the documentary's largest weekend yet, though its per-theater average of $4,081 was a step down from past sessions. Through its fourth weekend, "Superman" has earned $2.52 million.

I Want Your Money Is the Anti-Michael Moore Film

I Want Your Money Is the Anti-Michael Moore Film
Out of the blue comes a movie titled I Want Your Money. It is the Republican answer to all those Michael Moore movies that drove them crazy. And just as those films gave the liberal point of view, this movie gives the conservative one. The point of the movie is that Obama is ruining the country and the only way to save it is to go back to Reagan's views and policies. The maker of the film and the on screen narrator is Ray Griggs, who is as annoying in his manner as Moore is in his. Griggs has a bland exterior and speaks in almost a monotone. He provides some connectivity in the film with his monologues while ushering in people such as Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee to make some points. The most enjoyable elements of the movie are the...

Friday Report: 'Jackass 3D' Blasts Into Top Spot

On Friday, Jackass 3-D made a lot of jack. In fact, it boasted the biggest-grossing day that a Fall (Sept.-Oct.) movie has ever seen, and it tripled the debut of the solid Red. The holdovers were unphased by Jackass's bluster as well, contributing to a busy Friday by October standards. Storming approximately 4,600 screens at 3,081 locations, Jackass 3-D raked in an estimated $21.8 million on Friday, exceeding Scary Movie 3's $18.4 million for the Fall single-day record. It also blew away the opening days of the previous Jackass movies: the first one took in $9.7 million at 2,509 sites, while Jackass: Number Two pulled in $11.8 million at 3,059 sites. Jackass 3-D had 2,452 locations presenting the picture in the 3D illusion, and the 3D showings accounted for close to 90 percent of business. That means the initial attendance gains over the previous Jackass movies were not commensurate with the gross gains, and that Jackass 3D did

Oh, Sh*t. Did the Conservative Right Finally Find their Michael Moore? | Well, I Hate Him, So He's Got that Part Down

  • Pajiba
The trailer below, for I Want Your Money, makes me understand why the right loathes Michael Moore so much. From the trailer alone, it's hard to detect much difference between this documentary and, say, Fahrenheit 9/11, from a purely narrative standpoint. Ray Griggs -- the guy behind this doc -- attacks the Obama administration and its fiscal policies and smartly, I think, avoids social issues, where we on the left feel more self-righteously assured. He also finds knowledgeable talking heads to help him make his point, lampoons the left (especially easy target Pelosi), and the recurring use of the word Socialism makes me want to shove a can of paint down his throat.

In other words, it's effective. And this is not some lunatic conspiracy doc that's being released on YouTube. It opens in 500 theaters this weekend, folks. And my guess, given the current economic climate, and the hatred that the

I Want Your Money (documentary)

Perhaps Michael Moore makes it look too easy. Or Ray Griggs is just the classic case of a man behind the camera who wanted to be a movie star. In either case, “I Want Your Money,” his new Reagan-lauding documentary, loses steam when he hits the screen. Griggs is difficult to understand due to his poor diction and monotone delivery, and his narration appears during bizarre scenes of himself strolling through a pastoral field clearly intended to recall the “real America.” What they inevitably end up actually recalling, however, is a campaign commercial that has gone on too long. And that is essentially what this movie suffers from. It goes on too long.

Griggs’ intention is simple enough to surmise. The film is intended as a sort of Michael Moore documentary for the angry tea party masses, using short animated vignettes of the presidents to show a cartoon Reagan lecturing

Five Fiscally Minded Flicks About Our Road to Economic Ruin
With the election season upon us, and economic tussles in Washington reaching fever pitch, an onslaught of movies addressing America's #1 political issue are about to hit theaters. Between now and voting day, at least five movies, both documentary and fiction, take up the subject of the global economic collapse, examining its roots, causes and effects. Even Woody Allen's latest trifle "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" shows his usual white-bread bourgie characters struggling with financial difficulties. Can anyone be safe from the evils of Bernie Madoff? Judging from the following collection of movies, the answer is no. What else do we have to learn from these cinematic renditions of fiscal apocalypse? Below, find a rundown of each film's economic perspectives and their own equivalent S&P-style credit rating.

Check out the 'I Want Your Money' trailer.

This one looks interesting. Check out the trailer for Freestyle Releasing's "I Want Your Money." Ray Griggs' documentary opens on October 15th and is set against the backdrop of America’s growing disproval of current economic policies. The film takes a provocative look at our nation’s deeply depressed economy using the words and actions of Presidents Reagan and Obama. The film exposes the shocking reality of a bloated government while offering alternatives to help steer the United States back towards firm fiscal ground. By utilizing interviews with key leaders of America’s conservative movement – Newt Gingrich, Steve Forbes, Mike Huckabee – movie clips, dramatic portrayals, music, graphics and even comedic animation, I Want Your Money tells the story in the plainest terms of the choice between ‘Reganomics’ and ‘Obamanomics’.

Fnb Innovator: Ray Griggs

FilmNewsBriefs talked to filmmaker Ray Griggs about his new film “I Want Your Money” and some of the challenges in bringing his controversial yet relevant film to life.

FilmNewsBriefs: When did you come up with the premise for “I Want Your Money”?

Ray Griggs: Shortly after Obama took office and wanted to pass the $757 Billion stimulus bill.

Fnb: Was there a strong sense of urgency with the project?

Rg: Yes, because I know it takes time to make a film and it needed to be done before the 2010 mid-term election. Additionally, I know that everyday our government is spending an estimated $2,912,000,000.00.

Fnb: Why do you feel you are the right person to tell this story?

Rg: Because I am not a politician or an economist, I am just your average Joe. I think more average citizens should get involved in politics to take back control of our government.

Freestyle Plans October Cash Grab with 'I Want Your Money'

In October we'll be applying both Freakonomics, and with Ray Griggs' I Want Your Money we'll have an animated and talking heads 101 on Reaganomics and Obamanomics. To be released during political banter season (10.15), Freestyle Releasing are looking for a money maker with this docu which focuses on two versions of the American dream...that with the arrival of Obama shows the deep contrasts. One views the money you earned as yours and best allocated by you. It champions the traditional American dream, which has played out millions of times through generations of Americans, of improving one’s lot in life and the entrepreneurial spirit of daring to dream and to build big. The other believes that the federal government, using taxpayers’ money, should play a major role in leveling out the nation’s wealth to guarantee outcomes to all, regardless of effort. How America chooses between these two views of the role of government,

Hollywood Taking One More Run At 'The Wind In The Willows'

Like most my age, I learned about the Wind in the Willows not through those dumb things called books, but by the Disney cartoon The Adventures of Ichabod Crane and Mr. Toad that was shown on TV every Halloween. Looks like Hollywood wants one more go at a live action Wind in the Willows movie. Here's the low down from the trades:"The Wind in the Willows" is being developed in a live-action and animatronics version by Rg Entertainment for a fall shoot in New Zealand, with Peter Jackson's visual effects company Weta Workshop onboard. Ray Griggs ("Super Capers," "I Want Your Money") will direct and produce the $30 million feature, based on the 1908 tale by Kenneth Grahame. Richard Taylor will handle special effects, and Kim Sinclair will be production designer. The "Willows" script was penned by Bill Marsilii ("Deja Vu"), who recently teamed with Terry Rossio to sell their

New Wind in the Willows Film on the Horizon

The last time we dallied by the riverbank it was to announce Banking on Mr Toad, the Ioan Gruffudd starring biopic of Kenneth Grahame which I’ve not heard hide nor hair of since that news broke almost a year ago. Now though, it looks as if we’re about to welcome a big screen return to Grahame’s greatest creations as a new Wind in the Willows project gets the go-ahead.

The trials and tribulations of Mr Toad, Mole, Ratty, Badger and the rest have been adapted many times before, I fondly recall the stop motion animation version of my childhood and have worked hard to lay out a defence of the Pythons Terry Jones and Eric Idle in their 1996 version, but this new version will be directed by Ray Griggs, whose previous work I had to look up but the titles Super Capers and I Want Your Money
