Chasing Mavericks Review. Surprising Addition To The Fall Lineup

Chasing Mavericks Review 
By: MattInRC 

Chasing Mavericks is a feel-good film that's actually good.

Make sure to Follow MattInRC on Twitter for all his reviews and tasteless jokes.


Under the category of 'feel-good sports flick that don't suck,' we have the giants: Hoosiers (basketball), The Natural (baseball), The Sweater (hockey), and Rudy (football). But for every Rudy, we got The Replacements; for every Natural, we've endured Summer Catch. Does the biopic Chasing Mavericks finally add a surfing film into this hall of fame? The answer is...perhaps. Chasing Mavericks is a surprising addition to the fall lineup, sporting some amazing maverick waves and introducing us to the life of Jay Moriarity, whose tragic death in 2001 ended a brief but spectacular surfing career. And while Mavericks isn't perfect by any means, it's good enough to present one-part instruction in the sport/one-part biopic without losing itself in the details. Newcomer Jonny Weston plays the 16-year-old Jay, who one day sneaks onto a closed beach where some of the largest waves in the world - called mavericks - come to play during the El Nino weather season. Upon watching local legend Rick “Frosty” Hesson (Gerard Butler, 300) skim through them, Jay decides that he too wants a piece of the experience and enlists Frosty as his instructor. But the crafty veteran wants more from the boy, who as his neighbor has watched Jay grow up fatherless and surrounded by the loser mother Kristy (Elizabeth Shue, Back to the Future II). Frosty sees potential in the boy (who was counting swells as a kid) and becomes his mentor as well, instructing Jay in the Four Pillars of Strength, which Jay will need if he is to survive the massive force of these tides. As personal difficulty and even tragedy befall our duo, each will need the other to survive the greatest challenge ahead: surfing the mavericks while the entire world witnesses their death-defying plan.


Beautifully shot by directors Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential) and Michael Apted (Enigma), Mavericks shines as a film about surfing and does a fair job at telling the human story. In the previous case, it's been a long time since such epic scenes of surf boarders and their interaction with the ocean have been captured with such striking results. Apted, who replaced the ailing Hanson near the end of filming, does a more than capable job at closing the sale, capturing amazing close-ups of our actors as they brave the damaging maverick tides. This 'real-wave' footage gives the film a great dose of reality, accurately depicting both the thrill and danger of waves that can top five stories. From a visual perspective, it exceeds Endless Summer or really anything else. The script by Kario Salem (The Rat Pack) is modest in its approach, but contains worthwhile educational lessons for young people about the practicalities of surfing - wind, tides, the strength needed to hold a board along punishing waves - as well as the self-help element (via Frosty's Four Pillars of Strength). It may weep of Mr. Myiagi, but it feels right here, providing needed continuity between the surfing scenes and the training Jay undergoes.


Butler (who must be the least utilized talent in Hollywood) and Weston have good chemistry, as their relationship morphs beyond the standard father/son escapade. You can almost imagine him in his 300 garb again, instructing his son on fighting techniques; but this time, his grounded and complicated life is on display, providing a strong message for the impressionable Jay. Beyond that, the efforts of supporting actors Shue, Abigail Spencer (Cowboys and Aliens), and Leven Rambin (The Hunger Games) are unremarkable but good enough to keep the story moving. We're really here to see waves and men who ride them, and Mavericks gives us all we can handle. It's also nice to see the appearances of surfing great Robert August, who fashions Jay a new board to take on the mavericks, as well as fellow stars Peter Mel, Greg Long, and Zah Wormhoudt as Frosty's buddies.

As the menacing waves in Chasing Mavericks crash upon the screen, we're reminded about the simple pleasure which films can provide. Sure, the ending is tragic; but as with all things, it seems the brightest candles burn twice as fast. Chasing Mavericks is a solid feel-good film that will inspire with its message of tenacity, provided you're into such self-help schemes; at the very least, its imagery is breathtaking, providing a great thrill-ride for the senses. Watch out, or you might actually get something else out of it than just men on boards. Chasing Mavericks is rated PG.

Clive Owen Is King Of The Castle

Clive Owen: comic god? It could happen. True, he can be charming, but he’s been serious a lot in movies. Writers Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka think they can bring out a different side of Owen, however, in a new pic called King Of The Castle.

The pair, who co-wrote Jonah Hill / David Gordon Green film The Sitter last year (and who have been working on the Baywatch movie), are making the leap to directing with the new pic.

If he locks in the lead, Owen will play a smooth philanderer whose latest seduction is caught on film by a teenager. You can guess what happens next… Blackmail!

It appears to still be fairly early days for the idea, as the LA Times has no details on filming or other cast members. But Margin Call production company Benaroya Pictures will back the film, so it does at least have financing in place.

Our only worry here? The Sitter wasn’t great and the writers have also been working on sitcom Animal Practice, which, despite a star turn from Hangover II’s simian actress Crystal, has just been cancelled in the States. Still, at least that means more time for them to work on the movie…

Wolverine Rockin Bone Claws

Empire landed their hands on another fresh look at the new look at Wolverine, here glimpsed in flashback (note those bone claws). Here’s looking like he’s trapped in the kind of grimly functional prison where you might find a dangerously underqualified Alfred Molina doing medical work.

Most of those interesting things will remain the preserve of the magazine, so pick up the new issue if you want to learn all of Logan's secrets, but we will say this: one thing that had been presumed about The Wolverine is that it would be another X-Men prequel. Not so.

"Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all," reveals Mangold. "Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him."

Now that's intriguing. We're pretty sure that there are prequel elements to The Wolverine - our picture alone, if you know your Wolverine lore, would suggest it, while on-set pics suggest that some sequences take place in World War II. Also, recent rumours hint at a cameo from Famke Janssen as Logan's unrequited love Jean Grey, last seen being mercy-killed by Logan at the end of X-Men: The Last Stand.

But, according to Mangold, the bulk of the action - which takes Logan to Tokyo, where he falls for Tao Okamoto's mysterious Mariko and becomes entangled in a brutal gang war - will take place outside of all previous X-film continuity.

"That’s something that for me was very important, that I land in a very specific place in his timeline," says Mangold. "I wanted to be able to tell the story without the burden of handing it off to a film that already exists and having to conform to it. The ideas of immortality reign very heavily in this story and the burden of immortality weighs heavily on Logan. For me that’s such an interesting part of Logan’s character that is nearly impossible to explore if you have a kind of league or team movie."

Cloud Atlas Review. A Disaster From The Start

Cloud Atlas Review
By: MattInRC

Make sure to Follow MattInRC on Twitter for all his reviews and tasteless jokes.


Confusing throughout, flat out unintelligible at points, and just plain boring, Cloud Atlas is almost three hours of frustration you're well-advised to skip.


If you were one of the unfortunate few who bravely watched 1984's Dune, you were privy to a disaster that few films have matched. Since then, the formula (which involves an ambitious project wracked with a mix of shoddy storytelling, terrible acting, and poor editing) has sadly been well-duplicated. The year 2012 has seen its share of potential dance partners for Dune, but few come close to the quagmire which is Cloud Atlas. Few films will spawn such a polarization of opinion as this nearly three hour epic will, but it's clear that 'disaster' is an apropos place to start.


Any attempt at a summary would be folly, but suffice it to say our actors get to play multiple roles in multiple time periods that seem connected only by the fact that we actually recognize their true identities under tons of latex or body paint, rather than making any real attempt to explain how they got there or their connection to each other. I can also say that it stars Tom Hanks (Saving Private Ryan), Hallie Berry (Swordfish), Hugo Weaving (Captain America: TFA), and Hugh Grant (Notting Hill) as counterparts who chase each other throughout time, with each of them experiencing different fates in each timeline. I can also state that Cloud Atlas wants to be a big movie about big ideas - oppression, violence, the connectivity of people to time - but that's about all I feel confident in relating about this inspiration by author David Mitchell. To get any deeper under this film's absolutely impenetrable surface is risking too much, not because there's some hidden mystery that can only be seen to be appreciated, but because the details are simply too boring.


Things feel uneven from the start, as if our trio of directors (Tom Tykwer, Run Lola, Run and Andy & Lana Wachowski, The Matrix series) worked in different rooms for each scene, content to not call the other while shooting their version of the film, for fear someone might realize the impending disaster that was unfolding. Add to this the absolutely incomprehensible dialogue of the distant future, whose gibberish speak doesn't help clarify anything except that the future is pretty dumb. Subtitles would have helped, but I suppose the lack of them reflects the masochistic side of the Wachowskis, content to let us struggle towards some ending about the timelessness of love. Instead, we try to muddle our way through it, while Hanks imparts something important to Berry about...well...we're not sure. There are timelines which seem totally disconnected from others, ones in which our leads are not even in together (thus defeating the whole love-timeless thing), and plot points which achieve absolutely nothing. When the future Hanks and Berry risk ascending a tall mountain to open an ancient satellite dish, for example, nothing happens...I mean nothing happens...and our characters simply return to Hanks' village, which they learn has been destroyed by rejects from The Road Warrior. There's no explanation provided (at least any we can decipher) about the facility, what they hope to achieve by going there, or how it will solve the problem which is killing Berry's people (I did understand that part at least). Audiences shouldn't have to think this much in order to decipher a film's message, but Cloud Atlas sticks it to us, drawing nothing but dissent from those of us who have enjoyed these actors in plenty of previous roles, but who as a whole generate zero chemistry.

So ridiculous in its premise and so unsatisfying in its conclusion that audiences will no doubt wonder if the film's editing crew was out to lunch for most of the post-production, Cloud Atlas is certainly one of the worst films of the year. It's quite possible that Mr. and Ms. Wachowski (formerly Mr. Wachowski before her sex change) have finally spent the remaining amount of goodwill capital they had left from The Matrix on such a disastrous pile of garbage. This probably won't ruin our actors' careers, but certainly the best days of the Wachowskis seem long gone. It's a folly of epic proportions, one that will test your patience and bladder consecutively. Some might actually connect with Cloud Atlas, but it's such a crap shoot that I can't advise you try, unless your goal is to alienate friends and loved ones by dragging them to it. Cloud Atlas is rated R for nudity and violence and has a runtime of 172 minutes.

A Good Day to Die Hard Trailer

Here is the trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard. A Good Day to Die Hard will be the fifth entry in the action franchise featuring irascible and still-not-yet-retired NYPD officer John McClane—other potential titles included Die Hard or Die Trying and You’re Going to Die Hard, Charlie Brown–but this time he’s got an unlikely partner. Sure, he had an unlikely partner in the last two Die Hard movies, but now it’s his son, okay? Spartacus‘ Jai Courtney plays John McClane, Jr. (a.k.a. Jack) alongside Bruce Willis as the McClane clan head to Russia.

Watch the trailer after the Jump...

“That’s the thing about the Die Hard franchise, John’s always a fish out of water,” says Courtney, who is also starring opposite Tom Cruise in this fall’s Jack Reacher. “What could be further out of water for him than Russia?” Making things even more complicated, father and son don’t necessarily get along. “The relationship isn’t always functional. These are two guys who have been estranged for some time. John likes to wing it, see what happens. Jack’s more of a strategist.”

Still, the McClanes are able to put their differences aside to fight some baddies, although what particular type of baddies is still unclear. “I can’t say much about the villains without giving it away,” Courtney says. Hmm, maybe there’s something to the fact that all previous odd-numbered Die Hards have featured a Gruber? A Good Day to Die Hard is slated to hit theaters on Feb. 14, 2013.

Mad Dog Stare By Schwarzenegger In "Ten"

Arnold Schwarzenegger has sported some varied looks in his career, between Conan’s long locks to Total Recall’s waved ‘do to the spiky peaks of The Terminator and its sequels.  Schwarzenegger has taken on an even more extreme look for his role in David Ayers’ Ten.

Arnie himself tweeted the picture with the message, “I’m having a great time working with David Ayer on my new movie, Ten.”

Looking like a slightly fascistic cop in a dystopian world, he’s actually John “Breacher” Wharton, the tattooed hard nut leader of an elite squad of Drug Enforcement bruisers who assemble to raid a cartel’s safe house.

But the supposedly police action is actually a cover-up for the team to rob the place of millions in illegal merchandise to sell. Yet when the team – which also includes Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello, Harold Perrineau, Josh Holloway and Terrence Howard – thinks they’ve got away with the crime, the pressure from their legal colleagues rises and someone starts picking them off one by one.

Ayer and his team is busy filming the movie right now in Georgia. It will be out next year, with Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Dawn Olivieri and Malin Akerman also among the cast.

The film will be produced by Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan. Malmberg is CEO of Paradox Entertainment, which holds the rights to Conan. Morgan is the Universal-based writer and producer whose credits include the last four Fast and the Furious films, along with Wanted and 47 Ronin. Morgan has hatched the story and might write the script. The caveat is that the studio wants The Legend of Conan for summer 2014, and Morgan might not be finished writing the seventh Fast and Furious installment by then. If that happens he will be a very active producer, because this is Morgan’s dream project.

Schwarzenegger starred in two Conan films before moving on to Terminator and other blockbusters as he became the world’s biggest action star. Paradox was involved in a 2011 reboot at Millennium Films that starred Jason Momoa and misfired. Paradox’s Malmberg, who moved the project away from Warner Bros after seven years of development with big name filmmakers because the project was moving too slowly, feels that this is the version of the film that he and everybody else always wanted to see on the screen but couldn’t while Schwarzenegger was Governor of California.

“The original ended with Arnold on the throne as a seasoned warrior, and this is the take of the film we will make,” Malmberg told me. “It’s that Nordic Viking mythic guy who has played the role of king, warrior, soldier and mercenary, and who has bedded more women than anyone, nearing the last cycle of his life. He knows he’ll be going to Valhalla, and wants to go out with a good battle.”

There are no plans for Momoa to return. Morgan said that in his mind, The Legend of Conan not only skips over that film, but also the 1984 sequel that Schwarzenegger starred in. The direct link is to the original, which was directed by John Milius from a script that he wrote with Oliver Stone. That was a testosterone-laced exploration of Howard’s mythology of a child sold into slavery who grows into manhood seeking vengeance against the warlord who slaughtered his family and his village.

“After the original seminal movie, all that came after looked silly to me,” Morgan said. “Robert E. Howard’s mythology and some great philosophy from Nietzsche to Atilla the Hun was layered in the original film. People say, he didn’t speak for the first 20 minutes of the film, but that was calculated in depicting this man who takes control of life with his own hand. This movie picks up Conan where Arnold is now in his life, and we will be able to use the fact that he has aged in this story. I love the property of Conan so much that I wouldn’t touch it unless we came up with something worthy. We think this is a worthy successor to the original film. Think of this as Conan’s Unforgiven.”11 They’ve yet to figure out whether the film will be R-rated like that original film, but they won’t flinch from the hardness of the period depicted.

“I loved the choices they made in that film,” Morgan said. “You start with the wholesale slaughter and death of Conan’s village at the hand of the warlord played by James Earl Jones, and you see young Conan chained to a wheel as he becomes stronger. Then he’s a pit fighter, and later basically a stud bull before he meets the first kind person of his life, who lets him go. All of that horrific stuff happened for a reason, and then an act of kindness sends him on his journey. Will that level of violence be there? Absolutely, but only if it serves a character who lives by that barbarian law of the wild, who is capable of extreme violence and rage, but who has created his own code and operates from within it. By the end of that film, Conan became a certain character, and this film picks him up there, as he faces different challenges that include dealing with age.”

Said Schwarzenegger: “I always loved the Conan character and I’m honored to be asked to step into the role once again. I can’t wait to work with Universal and the great team of Fredrik Malmberg and Chris Morgan to develop the next step of this truly epic story.”11 Universal co-president of production Jeff Kirschenbaum will oversee the project, and attorneys Patrick Knapp and Richard Thompson made the deal for Paradox.

Matthew Vaughn Leaves X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Matthew Vaughn has decided not to direct the sequel to 20th Century Fox‘s hit spinoff X-Men: First Class. Ready for the next shocker? Atop the studio’s replacement short list is Bryan Singer, who launched the X-Men feature franchise with the first two superb films and who has been a guiding influence in this spinoff by writing the treatment and producing. If this works out, Singer and Vaughn would essentially be switching roles. Vaughn, who wrote the treatment for the sequel for X-Men: Days Of Future Past that was scripted by Simon Kinberg, would step back to produce the film with Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.

Vaughn will do another film for Fox, and I’m hearing it will be the drama Secret Service, an adaptation of the Mark Millar comic book series that Vaughn has been working on with the author.

Fox already has the script for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and set to return is Fox’s First Class cast that includes Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence. Fox hopes to make the July 18, 2014 release date it set for the sequel, but it will have to find a director quickly. I’m not exactly sure why Vaughn is bowing out, but he is pretty picky on projects that he directs. You’ll recall that he briefly bowed out of the original First Class film, prompting Fox to start a search before he changed his mind and returned. Vaughn also passed on directing the sequel to his Kick-Ass film, entrusting the job to Jeff Wadlow. Wadlow is shooting Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall right now with Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz.

The studio just navigated a similar situation when Rupert Wyatt decided not to come back and direct the sequel to Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. The studio had a cream of the crop group of directors waiting to take Wyatt’s place, and the search ended when Fox’s top choice, Cloverfield helmer Matt Reeves, committed to the job.11 Fox has been trying to up the pedigree of directors who make films at the studio, and bringing back Singer while keeping Vaughn in the fold would be a pretty good feat. The studio did not immediately comment, but I’ll update my story when I have more information. Singer’s next film is Jack The Giant Killer for New Line.
