Movie Review: 'Macbeth'

Macbeth is a twisted, brooding mess.

Review by Matt Cummings

Shakespeare reboots - that's a hard one to swallow these days - are usually met with a whipsaw of critical opinion. You either love Shakespeare remakes or you hate them. The problem has always been a simple one: bringing the material into current times without defeating the characters or brilliance of Shakespeare's works. Unfortunately, Michael Fassbender's Macbeth is hard to hear, nearly impossible at points to figure out, and places too much emphasis on style over substance.

Although the warrior Macbeth (Michael Fassbender) savagely defeats an army for King Duncan (David Thewlis), Macbeth is a shattered man, having recently buried his young son high in what appears to be the Scottish mountains. When Duncan 'rewards' his efforts by granting his son the keys to the castle, Macbeth and his Lady (Marion Cottliard) plan for Duncan's death and their ascension. As the cycle of terror and murder disrupts Macbeth's mind and his new kingdom, dark forces fortell of his fall, while an epic battle is joined by both murderer and victim.

DIrector Justin Kurzel throws some of the best action sequences we've ever seen in a Shakespeare film into the mix, producing a gritty, raw, nearly nerve-shattering experience. The mud and gunk in people's faces, the harsh lifestyle of Macbeth and his people at the beginning of the film give things a realistic anchor. But what drives Macbeth aground early on is the nearly imperceptible dialogue by Fassbender and several of the actors. The key to a well-made Shakepeare is bringing his prose into the current time period. Honestly, we need visual markers for a language that feels as foreign as any you cannot speak: very little of that is here, and we're left to wonder what Macbeth or Duncan has said in a scene when no action actually happens. Are they saying something meaningful, or wondering what they will order for dinner? That makes for a serious problem, especially when amazing (and sometimes disturbing) visuals is all you get.

Soon, Macbeth's striking imagery fades into "What is supposed to be happening here?", something which caused a not surprising exodus of audience members from our screening. When people leave a free film, you know something is wrong. There's a color scheme here of blacks, browns, ash, and charcoal, pushing the actor's eyes nearly out of their skulls while they remark about murder, fortune, and destiny. It's also not a complete production, as Kurzel has chosen to eliminate some dialogue and add in an opening scene not in the play. That won't sit with many who expect Macbeth to do more with the same source material. But the lack of any dialogue in the first 5 minutes is nothing if not unique.

What Kurzel does get right is the scheming of this First Family. Macbeth and wife weren't the original Underwoods, but they'll make you think they at least edited the book on it. Kurzel also succeeds in casting the right leads, wonderfully bringing Fassbender and Cottliard together. Too bad you can't hear them half the time, even though each emotes as much as they actually speak. Fassbender brings the mentally unbalanced Macbeth into the 21st Century, painting a figure who is both overly sure of himself and yet worried about everyone's perceived treason against him. Cottliard's deep eyes bring a potentially powerful presence to the screen, demonstrating more often than not that she's the one keeping her husband from crossing the line. And when he does - in a scene that's perhaps the most riveting here - she knows his reign is over.

And yet, Macbeth struggles to hold our interest. It's no spoiler who dies here, but when Lady Macbeth cashes her final check, we're not sure how she got that way. She's at a church one minute and dead the next. And of course the three women aren't too far behind, but we're no closer to understanding what powers they bring with them. The same happens with the Duncan and the less-than-obvious reasons why the Macbeths go all MI6 on him. These are the visual markers that Macbeth so desperately needed, and their exclusion ruins what could have been the best interpretation in years.

In the end, Macbeth is an exercise in tedium. It's hard to hear and difficult to follow otherwise, even though its two leads perform admirably. It might have received a 10-minute standing ovation at the most recent Cannes Film Festival, btu that doesn't mean audiences outside of those snobs will appreciate. It's one of the greatest misuses of talent in 2015.

Macbeth is rated R for strong violence and brief sexuality and has a runtime of 113 minutes.

Movie Review: 'In the Heart of the Sea'

In the Heart of the Sea should have stayed in port.

Review by Matt Cummings

In a time when superhero movies and the revisiting of our childhood brains the box office into submission, In the Heart of the Sea was supposed to arrive as a powerful and refreshing period alternative. But much like the rest of 2015's Oscar driftwood, this tale of an intelligent whale beating inferior men feels uninspiring in many parts and leaves the audience knowing exactly why blockbusters are currently ruling the day.

Told from two different perspectives, the story behind Moby Dick is uncovered as an aging survivor (Brendan Gleeson) reveals his harrowing tale to the writer Herman Melville (Ben Wishaw). There, the veteran seaman Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth) has braved 19th Century whaling as a quick way to earn a captainship while providing for his growing family. Situated in Nantucket - the home of the industry during that time - the need for whale oil couldn't be higher. Unfortunately, Chase's bosses don't see his potential, saddling him with an inexperienced captain (Benjamin Walker), the smallish Essex, and the brutal means by which whale oil is extracted. As the crew which includes Owen's friend Matthew Joy (Cillian Murphy) comes face to face with the largest whale ever, its destructive force places every crewman on the edge of deprivation, insanity, and even cannibalism.

For all the potential this film has to tell a deep and personal story, In the Heart of the Sea comes across as dull and largely uninventive. Granted, not much can compare to Melville's yarn, but instead of expanding that universe, Director Ron Howard keeps to a decidedly smaller one. It's only a story of terrible luck, perseverance, and fortitude, none of which really matters much in the end, as Murphy and Tom Holland as the youngest crew member Nickerson learns firsthand why you don't mess with killer whales. And that's because the nearly unstoppable force behind the mammal with a higher intelligence that Chase or his captain is frankly unbelievable. Somewhere here is a story that's far better than the one we ultimately get, missing all the elements of man vs nature, obsession, and madness, settling instead on a cannibal storyline to keep our interest as we stumble into act 3.

The ongoing epilogue of Whisaw and Gleeson - both amazing actors - is utterly wasted, settling too early on a pushy Melville and an all-attitude Nickerson that never works for what it's intended. Our screening was hosted in perhaps the worst digital screen in town, shrouding the entire affair in dim lighting and poor colors. I'm not sure a higher-quality experience would have made that much of a difference, because the effort Heart made to win us over feels more like Oscar bait than well-conceived and executed brilliance. Hemsworth, for all his brawny attitude and likeable smile, comes across as a decent man who realizes all too late that he's in way over his head. But the story betrays him late, as he realizes that the whaling guild who sent him have decided to write off the incident as an accident and not an attack. That doesn't play well here, especially when his Australian accent sometimes supercedes his Nantucket drawl. Holland might be the best of the lot, but I also appreciated the unexpected journey which Walker also takes, from threatened captain to patsy to quiet hero.

Heart expects the plug-in dramatic moments to work. But as we've seen so many times this year, audiences have come to expect bigger things, and a smallish film about an intelligent killer whale assaulting 19th Century men just doesn't cut it. This isn't the raw power of Howard's far better Rush, or the instant classic Apollo 13; Heart meanders its way through the first hour, setting up too much story that ultimately doesn't pay off later on - the commercial interests, Charlotte Riley as Chase's wife, or even the background of the men who will ultimately die with little fanfare. Its final 45 minutes does about the same. Heart feels like it could have succeeded had it served up sea survival flick and not some hoity-toity 'don't mess with Mama Nature' message.

Filled with good but not memorable acting and similar-feeling visuals, In the Heart of the Sea is just more Oscar rubble to build upon the truly good films of 2015. It's not bad, but such an admission no longer works as passive acceptance. Much like the period of whaling that died out with oil rigs, Heart's meager earnings make it instantly obsolete fare.

In the Heart of the Sea is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and peril, brief startling violence, and thematic material.

Rebecca Ferguson Returning For Another Mission

With Christopher McQuarrie once more writing and directing a Mission: Impossible outing to follow his barnstorming Rogue Nation, it appears that at least one of the cast will be back to join Tom Cruise, and it’s one that a lot of people will be happy to see return: Rebecca Ferguson.

The news is not quite official or confirmed by Paramount or McQuarrie as we write this, but Showbiz 411 is reporting that Ferguson is locked in for another round playing the mysterious and kick-ass Ilsa Faust. This will mark the first time a Mission leading lady has returned properly, not counting Michelle Monaghan’s tiny cameo at the end of Ghost Protocol.

We’d expect to see the likes of at least Simon Pegg’s Benji Dunn and Ving Rhames’ Luther Stickell back, plus possibly Jeremy Renner’s Brandt (though he didn’t exactly get a lot to do last time) and maybe even Alec Baldwin, given the events of Rogue Nation. What will Isla be up to, given that she’s not officially a member of the M:I team and was working against Cruise’s Ethan Hunt for some of the previous film? That, we suspect will have to wait until the first synopsis emerges. McQuarrie is at work on the script now and Paramount wants the new film ready for summer 2017.

Ferguson will be seen alongside Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant in Stephen Frears’ Florence Foster Jenkins and is currently filming thriller novel adaptation The Girl On The Train.

For more on Rogue Nation and filmmaking in general, you'll want to listen to our epic pod-chat with Christopher McQuarrie, to be found below.

#Trainspotting2 Is Getting Closer To Happening

According to THR Danny Boyle will be directing the sequel to the film that cemented his career back in 1996.

Tri-Star has chosen life, chosen a job … and has chosen Trainspotting 2.

Moving fast to a preemptive deal, the Sony label has landed the package, worldwide rights included, to the sequel of the seminal 1996 film with Danny Boyle back in the director’s chair.

Also returning to the film project are the original principal cast, including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle.

John Hodge, who wrote the script for the original adaptation, is also back as writer.

Sony Pictures co-chair Tom Rothman leaned on his longstanding relationship with Boyle to make the deal happen. Rothman has been a supporter of the filmmaker since 1997’s A Life Less Ordinary, when the former was an executive at Fox. More importantly, Rothman was the CEO of Fox Searchlight, running the division he founded when it released Boyle’s movies, ranging from 28 Days Later (2002) to Slumdog Millionaire (2008) to 127 Hours (2010).

The original Trainspotting adapted the 1993 novel by Irvine Welsh and told of a group of lower-income heroin users in Edinburgh drifting through their lives.

McGregor was the movie’s narrator and lead, surrounded by Sick Boy (Miller), a drug dealer; Begbie (Carlyle), a violent sociopath; and Spud (Bremner), a dim but genial friend.

The filmmaker has talked of making a sequel for several years, ever since Welsh wrote a follow-up book titled Porno (which will not be the title of the sequel, incidentally). Hodge wrote an original script for the project, which takes a look at the Welsh-created characters 20 years after the events of the first pic.

During the recent press tour for Steve Jobs, Boyle talked of how his intent was to shoot Trainspotting 2 in 2016 and now with TriStar backing him, that plan is looking like a reality. The aim is to shoot the movie in the spring for a 2017 release.

Sources say that Rothman and TriStar president Hannah Minghella read the script Thursday night and by Friday were in dealmaking mode.

“Like almost everyone my age, I had the ‘Choose Life’ poster on my university dorm-room wall," said Minghella, who calls Trainspotting a seminal movie for her. "I have wanted to work with Danny ever since, so the opportunity to collaborate on the sequel is truly a dream come true. It perfectly represents the filmmaker-driven movies I am committed to making at TriStar.”

Said Boyle: “It’s been 20 years since we met these characters and John Hodge’s screenplay brilliantly explores what's happened to them — and to us — in the intervening years. We are grateful to Tom and Hannah for their support and we can’t wait to get going.”'

Producing the new movie will be Andrew Macdonald, Boyle, Christian Colson and Bernie Bellew through Figment Films, Decibel Films and Cloud Eight Films. Film4 is also involved.

New #Zootopia Poster & The Countdown to Zoo Year’s Eve

The new poster for Disney’s Zootopia here. Not only is there one brand new poster – check out the posters for Zootopia’s biggest films of the year in The Countdown to Zoo Year’s Eve!

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.

X-Men: Apocalypse Teaser Poster

There have been sneak peeks and images of the various characters, but the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is on its way. Before that drops, however, here comes the Silver Surfer-like herald of the teaser poster.

It’s a fairly basic image, showing the traditional metallic movie X looking like it’s under some serious heat, which is what our heroes will be feeling this time around thanks to Oscar Isaac’s titular threat, ready to cause trouble for James McAvoy’s Professor X, Michael Fassbender’s Magneto and the rest.

The film’s story finds our heroes split across the globe: The Prof is still trying to help mutants blend in with the world, while Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is on her own crusade to settle matters between humans and mutants in a more violent fashion. Magneto, meanwhile, is opting for a quieter life of love in Poland. At least, that is, until Apocalypse comes a-calling and recruits him…

And the endlessly dangerous mutant is also taking on what has always been known in the comics as his “horsemen”, which in this case includes the young Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Psylocke (Olivia Munn) and Angel (Ben Hardy), who are all in bad circumstances of their own. Apocalypse, who has been in slumber for centuries, decides that the 1980s world is ripe for a reboot.
