LAMB Review 'Weirdly Special Movie'

CYRANO Official Trailer Staring Peter Dinklage & Haley Bennett

Award-winning director Joe Wright envelops moviegoers in a symphony of emotions with music, romance, and beauty in Cyrano, re-imagining the timeless tale of a heartbreaking love triangle. A man ahead of his time, Cyrano de Bergerac (played by Peter Dinklage ) dazzles whether with ferocious wordplay at a verbal joust or with brilliant swordplay in a duel. But, convinced that his appearance renders him unworthy of the love of a devoted friend, the luminous Roxanne ( Haley Bennett ), Cyrano has yet to declare his feelings for her — and Roxanne has fallen in love, at first sight, with Christian ( Kelvin Harrison, Jr. ).     In Select Theaters December 31st  Discuss this with fellow SJF fans on Facebook .

Movie Review: 'Pan'

The re-re-rehash of Pan never, ever captures the magic of the Disney classic. Review by Matt Cummings Some ideas are best left on the storyboards back at the office. A Casblanca remake/sequel? Get out of town. A Ben Hur re-imagining? Sadly, that one's nearing a release. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell Warner Bros. that a Peter Pan remake was just as bad an idea. The result - Pan - never, ever captures the fun of the original, sacrificing story for only mediocre special effects and plenty of bad press. Rather than stick to a solid, traditional plot, Pan sticks us with several uncomfortable origin story facts: Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) actually has two hands and is a genuinely nice guy, and Peter (Levi Miller in his first role) - who wears an on-the-nose reference to his name around his neck - is an abandoned child in WWII England. His mother, a pseudo cameo in Amanda Seyfried, is a bad ass Neverland warrior who decides she can't protect the bo

Pan Trailer & Character Posters For PAN Starring Hugh Jackman

With the Thanksgiving holiday this Thursday in the States, Trailer Thursday has clearly been swapped with Trailer Tuesday as a huge batch of new promos has just landed. One of the bigger ones, since it features the first proper footage from the movie, is for Peter Pan origin story Pan . Take a look at the teaser below, and find new stills and posters lurking lower down the page. Pan, directed by Atonement’s Joe Wright , aims to put a new spin on J.M. Barrie’s story, exploring how Neverland’s most famous young resident came to be. In this version, Peter ( Levi Miller ) is a lad in an orphanage abandoned by his mother, who has nevertheless left a note saying she hopes to come and reunite with him – cryptically in this world or another. But before that can happen, our hero is indeed whisked off to another world, as he’s kidnapped by the dread pirate Blackbeard ( Hugh Jackman , walking the line between panto and pulp). Put to work in the mines, he meets a charming, cocky, I

Has Fifty Shades Of Grey Found A Director

After a lengthy search, Universal and Focus Features seem to be closer to starting production on their much-anticipated adaptation of “ Fifty Shades of Grey .” Several sources tell Variety that while no deal is in place, Joe Wright is the choice to helm the feature adaptation of the steamy E.L. James novel. Though some reports say Wright has not won the job, one insider very close to the production says he is the man. Universal had no comment. U, Focus and producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti had been looking for some time for a director who could bring prestige to a book described by many as “mommy porn.” It’s a tricky project since following the book closely would inevitably result in an commercially undesirable NC-17 rating, while going easy on the sensuous elements of the story could disappoint fans of the runaway bestseller that started as an e-book derived from “Twilight” fan fiction. The other directors considered for the job included “Monster” helmer Patty J

Anna Karenina Review. Oscar Glory In It's Future?

 Anna Karenina Review By: MattInRC Does the bold Anna Karenina have Oscar glory emblazoned on its beauty pageant sash? Read on to find out. Among the most visually stunning movies in memory, Anna Karenina is a bold spectacle, keenly self-aware of its environment, and daring audiences to peer into its chaotic and highly-stylized snowball. But like an old repainted door, the rust of a chunky tragic love story rears its head far too often to either keep our attention or root for anyone inside the ball.11 For those of you unfamiliar with Tolstoy’s 846-page planet-killer, here’s the 24-hour news cycle summary: the beautiful and independent aristocrat Anna Karenina ( Keira Knightley , King Arthur) and the dashing Count Vronsky ( Aaron Taylor-Johnson , Kick-Ass) fall head over heels in love with each other, while Anna’s dull politician husband Alexi ( Jude Law , Gattaca) watches his marriage fall apart. As the young lovers descend into a messy affair, Russia’s uncompromising

Hanna Movie Review By: SandwichJohn

Hanna Movie Review By: SandwichJohn I have to start off by saying that this movie was honestly really well made. The direction in the film was just amazing, and the entire movie was like a painting in the making, by the end of the film you got to see the master piece. The Best movie of the year so far. Make sure to come back later this week for my interview with director Joe Wright and star Saorise Ronan . If your going into the film wanting a straight action film then this movie isn't what your looking for. The story is the true star of the movie with superb action thrown in. The movie was directed by Joe Wright who is not known for action movies at all. He is known more for directing period pieces. He has directed films like Pride & Prejudice, Oscar nominated Atonement and The Soloist . With this being his first taste directing action films, I think this is one path if he decides to continue down would be a nice change for the genre of directing action films. And the
