Ex Machina movie review: damselbot in distress

23 January 2015 4:50 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

There’s nothing fresh or even usefully true in its cartoonish dichotomy about men, but this pseudo-sf flick will expound upon it with pretentious tedium. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big science fiction geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

There’s a moment, Ex Machina’s big visual smack in the face, in which writer-director Alex Garland, probably unwittingly, reveals his hand. It’s imagery that, I would be utterly unsurprised to learn, was something that popped into his head disconnected from anything else, imagery he deemed so cool, so you-guys-gotta-see-this!, that he set himself then and there to building a story around it. I’m not, of course, going to spoil what this moment consists of, but suffice to say that it could have just as readily been slotted into a story about a serial killer. »

Hamama's death following health problems was confirmed by Egypt's official news agency Mena.

Top 25 Most Anticipated Studio Films of 2015: #3. Derek Cianfrance’s The Light Between Oceans

14 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Light Between Oceans

Director Derek Cianfrance // Writers: Derek Cianfrance, M.L. Stedman

Derek Cianfrance surfaced to the forefront of the best new American directors with his 2010 film Blue Valentine, which saw him swiftly reunite with Ryan Gosling for a slow-burning crime saga The Place Beyond the Pines in 2012. His fourth feature, The Light Between Oceans, is an adaptation of the bestselling and critically acclaimed novel by M.L. Stedman. We’re curious to see what Cianfrance does with such a hot commodity, as Dreamworks snapped up the rights back in 2012. He was able to amass an exciting cast, with Michael Fassbender and leading ladies Rachel Weisz and Swedish beauty Alicia Vikander (last seen in Anna Karenina and The Fifth Estate, but due for a fantastic 2015 with seven or eight new releases due to hit theaters). The tale concerns a lighthouse keeper that survived the ravages of Wwi, living on the remote »

Testament of Youth review: Alicia Vikander shines as Vera Brittain

13 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Kent; Screenwriter: Juliette Towhidi; Starring: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Emily Watson; Running time: 130 mins; Certificate: 12A

After a '70s BBC TV adaptation, Vera Brittain's World War I memoir Testament of Youth comes to the big screen this week under the stewardship of Harry Potter producer David Heyman and director James Kent. What emerges is a well-mounted drama that's a moving look at the seismic effect the Great War had on a generation.

Fast-rising Swedish star Alicia Vikander is the beating heart of the story, bringing spirit and steely determination (not to mention an impeccable British accent) to the role of Brittain. This will come as no surprise to those who caught her in A Royal Affair and Anna Karenina, and with Testament of Youth the first of eight films she has coming up in 2015, it's looking like a big year. »

Watch: Golden Globe Winner Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones Reveal Terrors Filming 'Theory of Everything'

12 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are Oscar perennials ("Les Mis," "Atonement," "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy," "Anna Karenina"). And they and their distributor, Universal's Focus Features, know they have a robust awards contender in "The Theory of Everything," the moving $18-million love story of Stephen and Jane Hawking, played by Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. Both are in the Oscar race, along with the film's director James Marsh (Oscar-winning doc "Man on Wire," "Shadow Dancer") and New Zealand-born screenwriter and Hawking obsessive Anthony McCarten, who nurtured for many years his adaptation of Jane Hawking's memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen Hawking."  I interviewed Redmayne and Jones in Toronto right after their movie's rousing debut (video below). Focus chose to skip Venice, Telluride, New York and London fests in favor of the Tiff launch and a »

Rain Can’t Dampen Nominees’ Spirits at BAFTA La Tea Party

10 January 2015 11:56 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Los Angeles was looking decidedly British on Saturday afternoon, with an uncharacteristic downpour serving as the chilly backdrop for BAFTA/La’s annual awards season Tea Party. No strangers to drizzle, U.K. thesps were out in full force along with a host of Golden Globe and BAFTA nominees, who filled the expansive ballroom at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills to sup on a spread of scones, sandwiches, roast beef and Yorkshire Puddings, along with champagne, cocktails and the titular beverage of choice (as well as the prerequisite coffee for those with less refined palates).

The Theory of Everything” star Eddie Redmayne — up for lead actor at both the Globes and BAFTAs — admitted that the awards circuit is “pretty new and overwhelming, but fun,” confiding that mingling with his cohorts is a highlight of the season. “With acting, you work quite intensely with people and then you don’t see them for a while. »

Domhnall Gleeson: ‘I’m done talking about Star Wars’

9 January 2015 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Luckily, the rising young star of Frank, Anna Karenina and About Time has plenty to say about his other new sci-fi movie, the gripping AI thriller Ex Machina

Domhnall Gleeson has seen the future and he has the fear. In the keep-like cellar restaurant of a Dublin hotel, mild panic sets in as a fleeting mention of the Film That Cannot Be Discussed escapes his lips, the one that is set in a galaxy far, far away. The Irish actor has been listing his extracurricular activities – the short he’s written and directed with his actor-brother Brian and actor-father Brendan, the online sketch series he’s created called Immatürity For Charity, and the feature-length script that he’d get round to finishing, if only film-makers such as the Coens and Alejandro Iñárritu didn’t keep calling with job offers. But he blows it when he brings up the music video »

Matthias Schoenaerts joins Tom Hooper’s gender-bending 'The Danish Girl'

8 January 2015 8:36 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After 2011’s "Bullhead" earned a Best Foreign Language Academy Award nomination, Matthias Schoenaerts could have become a James Bond villain and called it a day. Instead, the muscle-laden Belgian actor has challenged type-casting by sticking to promising films and name costars. Schoenaerts’ next project is destined for an awards frenzy: He’s set to join current Best Actor contender Eddie Redmayne in "The Danish Girl." Academy Award-winning director Tom Hooper follows up "Les Misérables" with the culled-from-real-life story, dramatizing the life of Danish painter Einar Wegener, who became one of the first men to undergo gender reassignment surgery. Lucinda Coxon ("Crimson Peak") wrote "The Danish Girl," based on a novel by David Ebershoff. Redmayne signed on to play Wegener last April.  Deadline’s original report is unclear about who Schoenaerts will play in "The Danish Girl," though his mere inclusion bumps up the film’s prestiguous cast, which includes Alicia Vikander »
