Paddington movie review: please look in on this movie, thank you

26 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Adorable. So witty and compassionate and bittersweet and just the right little bit of snarky that you will cry tears of joy from the perfection of it. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): was worried about CGI creepiness

I have read the source material (and I am indifferent about it)

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

So, a small brown illegal immigrant — he doesn’t even have a passport — sneaks over the border into the United Kingdom… and is instantly welcomed into the home of a quintessentially English family in London, complete with a kooky elderly kinswoman of unspecified relation and a house that is the epitome of storybook chic.

And it is adorable.

Adorable.

Paddington is, in fact, so cute and witty and compassionate and bittersweet and just the right little bit of snarky and positively downright altruistic that »

Watch: Eerie, Haunting Trailer For 'Strangerland' Starring Nicole Kidman And Hugo Weaving

21 November 2014 1:33 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We could really use a good movie from Nicole Kidman. This year she starred in the terribly reviewed "Before I Go To Sleep," the forgettable "The Railway Man," and her Cannes opener "Grace Of Monaco" was savaged by critics. Her next gig? "Paddington." Thankfully, "Strangerland" holds some promise and the haunting first teaser trailer has arrived. Co-starring Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes, the story follows a couple whose relationship is pushed to its breaking point after their two teenage children disappear into the outback. Penned by Fiona Seres and Michael KinironsKim Farrant (documentary “Naked on the Inside,” Australian TV show “Rush”) makes her feature debut on the project. And frankly, this looks like the kind of gritty, no frills movie Kidman needs to bounce back with. We're crossing our fingers that the moodiness on display adds up to something memorable. No release date or U.S. »

Nicole Kidman In Talks To Appear In The Secret In Their Eyes

4 November 2014 10:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I will admit to having mixed feelings about Nicole Kidman. The actress has had some interesting roles in her varied career, but she’s only rarely proven herself to be more than just a pretty face. Her appearance in Stoker gave the lie to anyone who thinks she can’t act, but the ill-conceived Grace of Monaco showcased her ephemeral beauty and little else. Now, the actress is in talks to replace Gwyneth Paltrow in The Secret in Their Eyes, a remake of an Argentine thriller.

The Secret in Their Eyes tells the story of a retired attorney who turns back the clock on an unsolved case, seeking closure for it and his unrequited passion for his former superior. Writing a book about the case, he begins to uncover new and potentially damaging secrets about the past.

The original Argentine film was written and directed by Juan Jose Campanella and »

New international trailer for Paddington

29 October 2014 12:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just a few months ago it was revealed that the original choice for Paddington Bear, Colin Firth, had a conscious uncoupling with the filmmakers of the upcoming big screen adaptation. They both felt that he was wrong for the role in the upcoming movie and Firth graciously dropped out of the project, with Ben Whishaw then announced as taking over the role of the marmalade loving bear. Now we’ve got a new international trailer for the film, which features Whishaw voicing the character; check it out below…

‘Close Range Love’ Re-Grabs Top Spot at Japanese Box Office

21 October 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tokyo: “Close Range Love” (Kinkyori Renai), Naoto Kumazawa’s drama about a high school student’s crush on her handsome English teacher, rebounded from No. 2 to No. 1 at the Japanese B.O. for the Oct. 18-19 weekend. It deposed the previous week’s top film, the Sayuri Yoshinaga starrer “Cape Nostalgia.” Based on Rin Mikimoto’s best-selling comic, the film earned $1.16 million on 100,766 admissions for the frame, or 69% of its previous weekend’s total. Its cume is $4.49 million on 381,493 admissions.

Meanwhile, competitor “Cape Nostalgia”’s total rose to $4.84 million on 453,756 admissions. The higher cume derives from its stronger performance on the weekdays than “Close Range Love,” whose teen target aud is attending classes then.

Bowing at No. 3 on 199 screens nationwide is “Grace of Monaco” with $755,665 on 64,542 admissions. The only other non-Japanese film in the top ten, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” slipped from the seventh to the ninth spot. »

DVD Review: 'Grace of Monaco'

14 October 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Olivier Dahan's Grace of Monaco (2014), about the marriage of Hollywood film star Grace Kelly (Nicole Kidman) and Prince Rainier (Tim Roth) is beautifully shot but lacks depth and tension. When Grace married Prince Rainer III of Monaco in 1956 it was like a fairy tale come true: iconic beauty gets her prince. But Grace sacrificed a successful career for her marriage and Dahan's film opens six years later when the cracks have begun to show. Grace finds it lonely bringing up two small children, while her husband is increasingly absent from the palace; embroiled in a row with France and dealing with affairs of state. So when Alfred Hitchcock (Roger Ashton-Griffiths) turns up to offer her a part in Marnie, she's sorely tempted.

WB To Retrofit Spec Script For I Am Legend Sequel

4 October 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In 2007, I Am Legend, which starred Will Smith ("Six Degrees of Separation") as 'Dr. Robert Neville', earned Warner Bros. $586 million at the worldwide box office. Then in 2012, Warner Bros. decided that they wanted a follow-up and hired Grace of Monaco screenwriter Arash Amel to pen a prequel, that would've featured Will Smith's 'Neville' just before the outbreak. That attempted failed to get a greenlight from WB, and it was scrapped. Fast forward to this past April, Warner Bros. purchased a the spec script A Garden At The End Of The World that was written by an unknown screenwriter, Gary Graham. The script has been described as a "sci-fi version of John Wayne’s The Searchers." WB noticed that Graham's script could work as a follow-up to I Am Legend with some tweaking and here and there. WB then approached the original I Am Legend producers Akiva Goldsman, James Lassiter »

Who needs Will Smith? 'I Am Legend' is getting a reboot

2 October 2014 7:57 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Warner Bros. is going back to the post-apocalyptic well with another adaptation of Richard Matheson’s "I Am Legend" film. This one won’t feature Will Smith, who starred in the 2007 film, and sounds as if it won’t have much in common with the source material. According to Deadline, the studio asked Gary Graham to repurpose his script "A Garden at the End of the World" into a reboot. The original screenplay, which garnered a lot of attention on the Black List website, was described as a sci-fi version of "The Searchers," the 1956 John Ford classic in which John Wayne combs the West for the Comanches niece kidnapped his nieces and killed the rest of the family. This will mark the fourth time Matheson’s 1954 novel has been adapted for film. Vincent Price starred in the 1964 film "The Last Man on Earth," Charlton Heston played the lead in »

Before I Go to Sleep movie review: memento worry

5 September 2014 5:47 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

When it finally collapses under the weight of its own preposterousness, this would-be elegant thriller becomes a cheap retrograde melodrama. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

And here I was all excited about an stylish and elegant thriller with a woman at its center, with a vaguely science-fictional conceit that works as a potent metaphor for some women’s unpleasant romantic experience. Except that was only the first half of the movie. And then Before I Go to Sleep had to throw that all away.

Ten years ago, 40ish Christine (Nicole Kidman: Grace of Monaco, The Railway Man) had an accident that left her with a weird form of amnesia: she can only remember stuff that happened today. Every morning when she wakes up, her »

Before I Go to Sleep review: Nicole Kidman in soapy psychodrama

1 September 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director Rowan Joffe; Screenwriter Rowan Joffe; Starring: Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Anne-Marie Duff, Adam Levy; Running time: 92 mins; Certificate: 15

Making the best-seller list on both sides of the pond, Sj Watson's debut novel Before I Go to Sleep was surely a no-brainer for film investors. Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong add value to this British psychological thriller with faint echoes of Memento in that its heroine suffers from a perilous case of amnesia. Gradually, the pieces come together to reveal that the film is less than the sum of its parts, trading instead on a certain soapy noir appeal.

A dingy domestic setting heightens the internal claustrophobia - of being trapped in a body that is unfamiliar - for Christine Lucas, who wakes up every day thinking she is still in college only to be confronted in the mirror with the face of a 40-year-old. It's only very slightly lined, »

Nicole's Return. The Dates Are Ever Changing.

15 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

When will our beloved Kidman return to us? For someone who works so consistently, doesn't it seem like it's hard to find Nicole Kidman in a movie theater? Grace of Monaco keeps threatening to arrive but never does leaving us to wonder if it will ever play in regular movie theaters after its shaming at Cannes (that place can be brutal). Any big dreams for the quality of Paddington (it comes from charming source material at least) her Christmas film, have been dashed by that hateful slapstick trailer and Colin Firth's exit as the voice. The wait is soon over though. For those of you who missed The Railway Man in theaters, it's just out on DVD and Blu-Ray. [Warning: Nicole's part is small enough that when the climax arrives, she's literally a blurry figure in the background.]

 

Next up though is the thriller Before I Go To Sleep which has a new poster (above) and a new release date: Halloween to be exact. Let's just hope it's »
