The Power of the Dog Review 'Benedict Cumberbatch is one of the great actors working today'

Taika Waititi To Write & Direct Time Bandits TV Series

Our eyebrows raised last July when we learned that Apple had landed a deal to turn Terry Gilliam's cult fantasy time travel heist road movie Time Bandits into a TV series. We were heartened to learn that Gilliam would have input, and we're further happy to report that Taika Waititi has signed up to write and direct the pilot for the series.

Gilliam's 1981 movie follows the time-traveling adventures of an 11-year-old history buff named Kevin who, one night, stumbles on six dwarfs who emerge from his closet. They are former workers of the Supreme Being (Ralph Richardson) who have stolen a map that charts all the holes in the space-time fabric, using it to hop from one historical era to the next in order to steal riches. Throughout the movie, they meet various historical and fictional characters, including Napoleon Bonaparte (Ian Holm) and Robin Hood (John Cleese), while the Supreme Being simultaneously tries to catch up to them and retrieve the map.

There's certainly scope for some fun adventures, and Waititi's irreverent style feels like it would mesh well with Gilliam's anarchic take on history. This just became one we're eager to watch, especially if Waititi keeps the flavour of the film and draws on his extensive list of contacts (comedy and otherwise) to people the world or just show up in cameos.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incrim
