Last Movie Rights

IMG_3474-0.JPG

Once upon a time people complained that movies were inferior to their source novels because the process of adaptation inevitably lead to the excision of characters, sub plots and other excrescences deemed to be superfluous in the more immediate and propulsive world of cinema. In short, movies lacked a novel’s detail. Now Peter Jackson’s inverted […]

Law of the Ocean

Black Sea

Kevin Macdonald’s nautical thriller casts Jude Law as a kind of spit and sawdust Dirk Pitt, replete with Scottish brogue and swearbox filling dialogue, sticks him in an antique Soviet submarine with a half-Brit, half-Russian crew, and has the mutually suspicious grunts go on a hunt for 45 million Reichsmarks worth of Nazi Gold (that’s […]

Male Bonding

St Vincent

In a universe where audience response was as structured and predictable as the clockwork version that some movies inhabit, St. Vincent’s reviews would write themselves. There’d be praise for Bill Murray, in a role that combines his sardonic shtick with pathos and emotional depth, there’d be relief that Melissa McCarthy remained a sober and human […]

Horrible Bosses 2

Who ordered the Horrible Bosses sequel? Was it you? Be honest. It hardly matters if you confess or not, actually. We’ll find you and when we do you’ll have a few things to answer for, by God. For a start, and to paraphrase Jason Bateman, why was it necessary to leave us with all the […]

Woman Trouble

The Homesman

Warning: This review reveals the fate of a main character. For around two thirds of its running time The Homesman has affected to be a great revisionist Western – a feminist take on the new frontier that jettisons uncultivated masculinity and simple heroics for the contemplation of a woman’s lot in the era of Missouri’s […]

Film Review: The Drop

Under the Radar

The Drop

The Drop executes one of those third act rug pulls that retrospectively saves the film but makes the experience of watching it, frustrating. Until the moment of revelation, and the point where the subtle cues and accrued character asides finally coalesce into something bountiful, it’s been an engaging drama, underscored with menace, that’s never quite […]

Film Review: The Hunger Games – Mockingjay Part I

The Long, Long Walk to Freedom

Hunger Games 3

Mockingjay or mocking us? That’s the question you’re left to chew over following this blue balls setup for the final Hunger Games movie. The decision to split the final story in this example of what they’re feeding young adults in place of real movies these days, was demonstrably cynical. Why get the price of one […]

Reality Bites

The Imitation Game

HJGKE CEDDES FKSEP WQR- no, just kidding. Mind you, as with any movie, The Imitation Game encodes many messages hoping, perhaps optimistically, that the audience’s skull computers will find the key and unlock them, sauntering into the aisle, clothes stained with coke and crushed popcorn kernels, satisfied that they’ve seen an important and moving story.

The World is Not Enough 

Interstellar

Christopher Nolan’s ambition for Interstellar was nearly as great as that which possessed NASA engineers as they devised the moon landing. He wanted to revive the so-called “four quadrant” movie of his youth, that is produce the kind of blockbuster that bunched a set of universal threads and wove them into a yarn that could […]

Sentimental Education

Judge

The Judge is a prestige project for star and producer, Robert Downey Jr; a movie meticulously planned to garner praise for its leads, respect for its subject matter – for there’s nowt more affecting than a wayward son helping his proud old Dad cope with the undignifying effects of terminal cancer – and plaudits for […]
