Ben-Hur movie review: it’s fine, everything is fine

MaryAnn’s quick take…

It’s not great. It’s not terrible. It is bland manufactured entertainment product. It’s fine. Hollywood is not creatively bankrupt. Everything is fine. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

It’s fine. Everything is fine. This new Ben-Hur is fine. It’s not great. It’s not terrible. It is a piece of bland manufactured entertainment product. It exists. It’s fine.

It’s not great. It’s not terrible. It’s fine. Hollywood is not creatively bankrupt. Everything is fine.

It’s fine that major Hollywood studios that insist they are businesses first sunk $100 million into producing a movie that no one was demanding, and many more tens of millions in advertising and marketing trying to convince audiences they wanted to see it.

'Ben-Hur' Director on How His Remake Differs From Charlton Heston's Film and How He Found His Judah

'Ben-Hur' Director on How His Remake Differs From Charlton Heston's Film and How He Found His Judah
Walking into the home office of Timur Bekmambetov, the filmmaker behind Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and the upcoming Ben-Hur (Aug. 19), one wouldn't expect to find a shrine to Walt Disney. After all, the Kazakhstan-born filmmaker first made his mark with the creepy, visually inventive R-rated horror fantasy Night Watch, which became Russia's highest-grossing film in 2004. He followed that with the sequel Day Watch (which topped its predecessor) before his first American film — 2008's Angelina Jolie vehicle Wanted — earned $341.4 million worldwide. But today, the director-producer lives in Disney's former

Director Timur Bekmambetov Says ‘Dusk Watch’ Will Happen at Some Point

Director Timur Bekmambetov Says ‘Dusk Watch’ Will Happen at Some Point
It’s been a few years since we last heard about Dusk Watch. For a variety of reasons, we still haven’t seen the third installment in the Russian series, despite previous installments Night Watch and Day Watch being considerable box office hits overseas. Director Timur Bekmambetov is a rather busy man these days, but he hasn’t forgotten about Dusk Watch, and he says it will […]

Bodrov, Mokritsky films win development funding
New projects by Sergei Bodrov and Sergei Mokritsky awarded development funding by Russian Cinema Fund

New films by veteran Russian director Sergei Bodrov and DoP-director Sergei Mokritsky are among 10 projects each awarded up to $76,000 (RUB5m) by the Russian Cinema Fund (Fond Kino) in its new action line of funding at the development stage.

Bodrov (Mongol) has written a screenplay based on Alexey Ivanov’s historical drama Heart of Parma, to be produced by Vlad Ryashin’s Star Media Distribution, which promoted the project at the American Film Film (Afm) earlier this month.

Mokritsky - who had a box-office hit in Russia and Ukraine this year with his Second World War drama Battle For Sevastopol (aka Unbreakable) - is planning an adaptation of Russian fantasy writer Sergei Lukianenko’s novel Chernovik.

Previous novels by Lukianenko - Night Watch and Day Watch - were successfully adapted for the cinema both in Russia and in the Us.

‘Hobbit’, ‘Exodus’ Lead XMas Frame; Euro, Korea Pics Boom Locally: Final Intl Bo Update

‘Hobbit’, ‘Exodus’ Lead XMas Frame; Euro, Korea Pics Boom Locally: Final Intl Bo Update
Final Update, Monday 4:49 Pm Pt: Across the Top 10 major studio releases internationally there’s reason for some holiday cheer. This weekend’s figures are up 19.4% over last frame with The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies leading the pack at $89M, plus strong perfs from Exodus: Gods And Kings in new key markets and the Night At The Museum finale. Still, that result is down from last year, largely due to the impact that Frozen was having on the season with a $50.5M take in the comparable frame. Five Armies in the estimates is also about 9.3% off from Smaug’s performance last year, but there are those nasty currency fluctuations to take into account.

Still, it a big weekend for local titles. Last frame’s Indian release Pk added Bollywood flair to the international box office with an offshore haul of $14.3M for a global cume of $61.46M.

The Essential Films & TV to Stream This Week – August 26th 2014

Not a lot to say in the pre-amble to this week’s selection of titles. Should probably apologise for the negativity in advance because a lot of the below is dreck this week across any content provider apart from the occasional bright spot and a new Netflix exclusive. Hopefully you will be able to at least find something worth a look that floats your boat.

This week’s titles of note are as follows:

Gravity (2013)

There really isn’t anymore praise that I can heap on Alfonso Cuaron’s outer space thrill ride that hasn’t been heaped upon it already. Upon repeat viewing what impresses more and more is the technical marvel that this film represents with Gravity being a massive leap forward in the use of virtual sets as well as animation that looks like real people.

There are apparently whole entire scenes here featuring Sandra Bullock and

Looking for Something to Watch on Father's Day? Try 'Black Nation'

Here's something to add to your Father's Day watch-list... A film covered on S&A in 2009 (the first year of the site's existence, before we joined the Indiewire network) titled "Black Nation," which I only just found out is streaming online at SnagFilms.com (parent company of Indiewire). As seen through the lenses of Swedish filmmaker, Mats Hjelm, the Detroit-set "Black Nation" is a documentary feature that takes an uncompromising look at the state of Black men in America today set within the framework of a Father’s day service at the city’s *controversial* Church Shrine of the Black Madonna. The Church strives to promote and develop community led programs and...

Dum Dum Girls' Video For "Rimbaud Eyes" Is the Sexiest Cartoon of the Day

  • Nerve
Dum Dum Girls' Video For "Rimbaud Eyes" Is the Sexiest Cartoon of the Day Watch frontwoman Dee Dee Penny traipse through a psychedelic red-light district. by Liam Mathews  The Dum Dum Girls perfected their brand of '60s-girl-group-meets-'80s-new-wave a while ago, and now they just keep cranking out sparkly art-goth pop songs like "Rimbaud Eyes" like even sexier Strokes. In this new video, the Batman theme song composers get a cartoon of their own. Dazed Digital accurately compared the video to James Bond title sequences and Jem and the Holograms, but it's sexier and more alluring than those comparisons let on. The video was directed by musician and artist Tamaryn and animated by VFX whiz Gooby Herms. "Rimbaud Eyes" is from Dum Dum Girls' album Too True. Images via Sub [...]

Read an Excerpt from Sergei Lukyanenko’s Twilight Watch

  • DailyDead
Twilight Watch is the third book in Sergei Lukyanenko’s Night Watch series. It is being released today in the Us by HarperCollins and they’ve given us an excerpt to share with Daily Dead readers:

Night Watch and Day Watch revealed the “Others,” an ancient race of supernatural beings—magicians, shape-shifters, vampires, and healers—who live among us and swear allegiance to either the Dark or the Light. For a millennium, these opponents have coexisted in an uneasy truce, guarding each other and tottering on the brink of war.

In Twilight Watch, the Others face their greatest threat yet. An ancient book of spells with the power to turn ordinary humans into Others has fallen into the wrong hands, threatening to destroy the precarious balance between the forces of Darkness and Light. Now the Night Watch and the Day Watch must cooperate to stop the culprit. Anton, the hero from Night Watch,

‘The Client List’ Clip: Jennifer Love Hewitt Rocks Out To Bonnie Raitt

Riley gives her friends ‘Something To Talk About’ in this clip from Sunday’s all-new ‘Client List.’ Watch!

As the world waits patiently for Jennifer Love Hewitt to release another album — “BareNaked” still lives an active lifestyle on my iPod — this new clip from the April 14 episode of Lifetime’s The Client List will have to tide us over. In the video, obtained exclusively by HollywoodLife.com, Riley steps away from The Rub of Sugarland and gets to use her hands for a different purpose: holding a microphone!

But while Riley’s rousing rendition of Bonnie Raitt‘s timeless classic is obviously the main attraction, there are a few sideshows going on in the audience — like Derek (Rob Mayes) and Selena (Alicia Lagano), who already start planning a secret, sexy rendezvous before Riley even belts out her last note.

Plus, there’s Evan (Colin Egglesfield) can’t take his eyes off Riley.

As per the Pajiba website...

"Are you familiar with the movie and television trope in which someone is unexpectedly hit by a bus or other large vehicle? I’m sure that two or three instances of it immediately come to mind (and they’re assuredly in the video). We see it all the time (and it’s almost always effective), but I had no idea just how often it is employed until the noted video editor behind Harry Hanrahan compiled practically every instance ever of the trope into this supercut.

Bay & Bekmambetov To Unite For ‘Heatseekers’

Known for his unique, brilliant and bonkers efforts, Night Watch, Day Watch and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Russian-Kazakh director Timur Bekmambetov is set to form a new partnership in Hollywood. Following his team-up with Tim Burton, Bekmambetov is to unite with excessive filmmaker and producer Michael Bay and will direct the ‘aerial pirates’ adventure, Heatseekers. The duo will work alongside Platinum Dunes producers, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller and Wanted scribe Chris Morgan, using a script written by F. Scott Frazier.

Bekamabetov is still working on bringing a sequel to his bullet-bending actioner Wanted. However, it appears Heatseekers will be his next film as star James McAvoy will be busy for the foreseeable future as wheelchair-bound Professor Xavier in Bryan Singer’s pre/sequel, X-men: Days Of Future Past. Bay is also prepping his own fourth Transformers effort.

We’ll keep you posted on potential Heatseekers casting.
