More lists, taking in Gregg Wallace's happiest feelings and Rihanna chucking up ribbons

8 movie characters you wouldn't want to fuck with, by Jordan Rizzle Kicks

1 Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills (in Taken)

Literally slaps up most of Paris in 96 hours.

2 Brad Pitt as Mickey O'Neil (in Snatch)

One-hit wonder.

3 Gary Oldman as Stansfield (in Leon)

No one plays gun-toting villains like Gary Oldman.

He holds up a judge at gunpoint. Enough said.

Can literally do anything.

Can batter people while wearing a backpack.

7 Samuel L Jackson as Jules (in Pulp Fiction)

Hansel, Yemen, Haven, Marigold Change Dates

22 December 2011 10:54 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount has pushed back the Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton-led action fantasy "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" from a March 2nd to a 'to be determined' date sometime next Fall.

The move isn't surprising as so far the only publicity for the film has been one still - a trailer has been long overdue but with the delay it gives the studio much more time to get its publicity and marketing campaign together.

CBS Films has pushed back the Ewan McGregor-led "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen" by a week to March 9th, while Relativity have moved the Nicholas Sparks adaptation "Safe Haven" back by nearly four months to a June 1st release date.

Music Box Films have finally announced a date for the Rachel Weisz-led woman's sexual awakening drama "The Deep Blue Sea" - it will hit March 30th.

Lionsgate has set the dates for two more »

From Gary Oldman, Kirsten Dunst to Sareh Bayat, The Artist: London Film Critics' Non-Hollywood Flavor

20 December 2011 6:37 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kenneth Branagh, My Week with Marilyn So, does A Separation's Sareh Bayat have a chance at a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination? If only a nomination for the London Film Critics' Circle Awards had that sort of influence. Were that so, Nicolas Winding Refn's thriller Drive and Tomas Alfredson's spy drama Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, each nominated for six London Critics awards, would surely be shortlisted for the Best Picture Academy Award. [Full list of London Film Critics' 2011 Nominations.] Gary Oldman would also then be a front-runner for the Best Actor Oscar. "I am proud of my work in this film, and so very proud of the film," Oldman said after learning of his London Critics' nod. "The London Critics' Circle has reaffirmed that we have made a film that remains genuine, first rate 'cinema.' Indeed, it is gratifying to be among the representatives of the best of British, and it always will be. »

'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Tops London Film Critics' Circle Nominations

20 December 2011 2:48 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" is finally getting its awards season due.

Of course, leave it to the London Film Critics' Circle to show some love to the British spy thriller. The film scored six nominations, including Film of the Year and Actor of the Year for Gary Oldman.

"Drive" was also a strong contender, matching "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" with six nominations overall as well as nods for Film of the Year and Actor of the Year for Ryan Gosling, while "A Separation" and "We Need to Talk About Kevin" earned five nominations each.

Founded in 1926, the London Film Critics' Circle has been presenting awards annually since 1980. In addition to recognizing cinematic excellence in general, the London Film Critics' Circle also gives out awards for the best in British film as well; this helps explain the nomination totals of films like "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," which earned British Film of »

Drive and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy both earned six nominations from the London Film Critics’ Circle, including nods for Film of the Year and Actor of the Year.  “I am proud of the breadth, intelligence and style of the choices the London critics have made, honouring the richness of world cinema and the fresh, cool takes on classic movie genres seen in films such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Drive, and The Artist,” said Circle chair Jason Solomons. “This is surely the classiest set of nominations around this year, with truly superb work reflected in the directing and foreign language categories. »

London Critics Love: A Separation, Drive, Tinker Tailor

20 December 2011 9:32 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The London Film Critics will not name their winners, as far as I can tell, until a ceremony on January 19th. I wonder if that's correct? Do they really have enough clout to get celebrities to show without winning in advance? (That's how most critics organizations get celebrities at their events. They come specifically to receive awards they've already won). But here are their nominees. It's good news for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Drive which led the nominations with six each including Best Film. A Separation also did really well as it continues to build momentum. It's just so sad that it didn't get an earlier and harder push. It should've been in the Best Picture discussion and lord knows it's about time we had an instant foreign language classic in the Best Picture discussion again. Remember when that was happening regularly for a few years about ten yeras back. »

Scandinavian directors lead Drive for London Film Critics' Circle awards

20 December 2011 8:17 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Nicolas Winding Refn's thriller and Tomas Alfredson's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy have been nominated for six awards apiece

Tomas Alfredson's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive are leading the charge for the London Film Critics' Circle awards with six nominations apiece.

Alfredson's cold war espionage drama picked up nods for film of the year, British film of the year, actor of the year, British actor of the year, screenwriter of the year and technical achievement, while Winding Refn's Oscar-tipped noir thriller will fight it out for film of the year, director of the year, actor of the year, supporting actor of the year, British actress of the year and technical achievement.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy star Gary Oldman has been largely ignored by awards bodies so far, with the honourable exception of the San Francisco Film Critics' Circle (named best actor) and the »

2011 Zurich Film Festival

16 December 2011 12:15 PM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

A few years back, the Zurich Film Festival burst onto the map, but for all the wrong reasons. In 2009, Roman Polanski, en route to the festival to receive a lifetime achievement award, was apprehended shortly after landing on Swiss soil. He was never extradited to the United States to stand trial for his mid ’70s sexual escapades with the then underaged Samatha Geimer in Jack Nicholson’s Hollywood Hills home, and now he’s free, having returned for the seventh edition of Zurich’s increasingly important film festival. He screened his “film memoir,” which I simply loathed for its canned, staged quality, its lack of genuine insight into the man and his times. Made by ex-Polanski producer Andrew Braunsberg, Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir had its “secret” world premiere at the Zurich Film Festival. Hot off the heels of Polanski’s lukewarm Yesmina Reza adaptation Carnage, it is the »

SAG award nominations: rewarding the mediocre and the well-known | Sarah Hughes

15 December 2011 2:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Recognition for Midnight in Paris, but nothing for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy? The Screen Actors Guild has missed a trick

It's that time of year, when the nomination lists come thick and fast and everyone starts trying to predict who will clean up at the Oscars. Today, the Screen Actors Guild and the Critics Choice Awards had their say. So what did we learn?

1. The Screen Actors Guild exists in an entirely different reality from the rest of the world

This is the only explanation for their frankly bizarre nominations. From the inclusion of the slight Midnight in Paris in the outstanding cast category to the nod for Leonardo DiCaprio's ponderous turn in the deeply dull J Edgar, SAG seems to be going out of its way to reward the mediocre or well-known at the expense of the interesting. If they had to go for a crowd-pleaser I would »

Ready for Battle with new War Horse Clip

14 December 2011 2:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

While a solid serving of Equine induced sniffles may be denied to us here in the UK on Christmas Day Steven Spielberg’s second film of the year enters cinemas across the pond in a couple of weeks and there’s a new clip available if you’re currently fence-straddled.

This new clip is introduced by Jeremy Irvine who heads up the bipedal cast as Albert, the young boy who follows his horse to war, and features Benedict Cumberbatch about to lead the troops into battle.

Cumberbatch has had a pretty fine coupld of years himself with the BBC’s Sherlock and a leading role in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy to his credit, and Tom Hiddleston, another young actor who made a good impression in Thor and later The Deep Blue Sea, is also glimsped here.

Here’s the clip all the way from the land of Yahoo,

The best films of 2011: Philip French's choice

12 December 2011 3:45 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It's been a good year for veteran returnees, a bad one for 3D glasses, with a sense of impending doom never far away

There hung over the cinema this past year a sense of loss, of things being eroded, slipping away, disappearing. It could be seen all around us in the closing of shops selling and renting DVDs, the replacement of traditional film by digital technology, the old-fashioned projectionists going the way of saddlers, the demise of the UK Film Council. Prize-winning documentaries on the continuing world economic crisis, the threatened extinction of our planet, the costly futile wars we're engaged in – all provided a factual underpinning to feature films reflecting a widespread anticipation of impending apocalypse.

To name just three examples of the latter: in David Mackenzie's Perfect Sense, the world adjusts painfully to the gradual loss of our sense of taste, smell, hearing, sight; Lars von Trier »

Daily Briefing. Grimly Reaping in 2011

11 December 2011 7:40 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

As year-end rituals go, remembering those we've lost over the past twelve months is the solemn twin of list-making, though it's often no less an act of celebration. In the new issue of the Brooklyn Rail, Charles Bernstein and Susan Bee look back on the life of George Kuchar, "one of the most creative, original, and influential filmmakers of our time, straddling two generations of North American iconoclasts, from Stan Brakhage, Ken Jacobs, Rudy Burckhardt, Kenneth Anger, and Michael Snow to Warren Sonbert, Ernie Gehr, Abigail Child, and Henry Hills. Often collaborating with his twin brother, Mike, George Kuchar started making films as a Bronx teenager, and the brothers' early films already show the ingenuity, exuberance, and do-it-yourself charm that would pervade scores of their subsequent films."

Close up: Angelina Jolie and Tom Cruise master 'The Meh'

8 December 2011 10:01 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Angelina Jolie and Tom Cruise dismiss a lawsuit and a rumour as 'par for the course' and 'ludicrous'

The big story

Celebrity gesture of the week? The shrug.

Angelina Jolie sported one as a lawsuit claiming her directorial debut was nicked from a Croatian journalist was filed, then Tom Cruise (aka Tom Cruise's People) took up the trend in response to rumours that crowds who greeted the Mission Impossible star's arrival in Mumbai were hired actors.

It became both rather well. "It's par for the course," said Jolie of Josip Knežević's claim that she had taken her story from his book, The Soul Shattering. "It happens on almost every film. There are many books and documentaries that I did pull from, but that particular book I've never seen." Jolie's film, In The Land of Blood and Honey, is set during the Bosnian war and sees a Serbian camp commander »

365 Days, 100 Films #78 - The Deep Blue Sea (2011)

6 December 2011 4:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Deep Blue Sea, 2011.

Written and Directed by Terence Davies.

Starring Rachel Weisz, Tom Hiddleston, Simon Russell Beale, Karl Johnson, Ann Mitchell, Harry Hadden-Paton, Sarah Kants and Jolyon Coy.

Synopsis:

A woman is caught in a 1950s love triangle between her husband and a young, exciting, ex-raf officer.

“Where are all the sharks?” I thought to myself about half an hour in, before the drama of The Deep Blue Sea fully encapsulates you. There isn’t a single black guy in it, let alone Samuel L. Jackson.

Spoiler: It ain’t about sharks.

That first half hour, where you’re waiting for the sharks, drags its feet in a post-suicide slumber. The film opens majestically with Hester Collyer (Rachel Weisz) closing the windows of her run-down flat, blocking the gap underneath the front door with linen and turning the gas on full, all set to the soaring violins of Samuel Barber. »

The best films of 2011: Peter Bradshaw's choice

5 December 2011 1:09 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Despite the UK Film Council's golden age, 2011 was very much a mixed bag of events

In some ways, 2011 was the strangest year in living memory for British cinema. The UK Film Council was officially wound up at the end of March, a showy act from this coalition government, annulling a Labour creation on the grounds of high salaries and cronyism, but transferring much of its budget and responsibilities to the British Film Institute. And this at a time when the Film Council was having a golden age: a bag of Oscars for The King's Speech and a feeling that it had fostered real talent. Something was going very right for British cinema. Lynne Ramsey's We Need to Talk About Kevin premiered at Cannes; Steve McQueen's Shame and Andrea Arnold's Wuthering Heights made waves at Venice.

Two film-makers from Iran showed that cinema was able to address »
