Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping Review

Excellent

An astute satire of the pop music business, this raucous mock-documentary is consistently hilarious from start to finish. Some of the jokes are corny, but everything about this movie has a point to make about fame and the music industry. The songs are jaw-droppingly wacky, as is the constant string of big-name cameos. And it's anchored on a riotously funny performance by Andy Samberg.

He plays Connor, formerly one-third of the boy band Style Boyz, alongside his childhood friends Owen (Jorma Taccone) and Lawrence (Akica Schaffer). When Conner decided to go solo, Owen tagged along with him as his deejay, while Lawrence angrily left to become a farmer. But sales of Connor's new album are wobbling, and with 32 people on his personal payroll, he needs to bring in the cash. After a marketing scheme to upload his music to kitchen appliances backfires, he heads out on his Connquest world tour, supported by unhinged singer Hunter (Chris Redd). But Owen thinks that what Connor really needs is to make up with Lawrence, and bring the Boyz back together again.

Samberg is perfect as the too-cute musician who believes all the hype and doesn't have a clue what's really happening around him. Even in his ignorance, Connor is hugely likeable, because he never means to be cruel. This makes his interaction with the people around him thoroughly engaging, and often laugh-out-loud funny, from Sarah Silverman's PR guru to Tim Meadows' enthusiastic manager to Maya Rudolph's kitchen appliance queen. Joan Cusack has some marvellous moments as his dotty mum, while Imogen Poots gets the film's best sequence as the "official" girlfriend he proposes to complete with an ill-advised pack of wolves and live music by Seal. And then there's Justin Timberlake as Connor's singing chef.

Green Room - Teaser Trailer


The Ain't Rights are a punk band looking for their big break and until that comes along, they're willing to tour and play any gig they're offered. When the band is given the chance to play a gig at short notice, they pack their bags and road trip to the Oregon venue.

The band work through their set of songs including a cover of The Dead Kennedys' track 'Nazi Punks F**k Off', some might say an odd choice of song given the current crowd of people they're playing to. As the band come off stage they return to the green room only to discover that they've stumbled upon a gruesome crime scene - a murder to be precise.

Locked in the green room and quickly evaluating their options, it seems that they're now the ones being targeted by the vicious venue owner, Darcy Banker, and his neo-Nazi gang. Held against their will, with no connection to the outside world, it becomes evident that Banker isn't going to allow the group to make it through the night alive.

'A Long Way Down': Aaron And Imogen, Together Again


Aaron Paul Imogen Poots

Having just starred together in the muscle-car thriller Need for Speed, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots team up again this week for A Long Way Down, adapted from the Nick Hornby novel. And while both films have been slated by the critics, the actors clearly enjoyed working on them. 

A Long Way DownPierce Brosnan [L], Imogen Poots [center] and Toni Collette [R] in 'A Long Way Down'

Both have spoken at length about how much fun it was to learn stunt driving skills for Need for Speed, and A Long Way Down presented another challenge: dealing with a darkly serious subject matter without getting too heavy about it.

'Need For Speed' Is Rubbish And It Didn't Make Any Money


Aaron Paul Dominic Cooper Imogen Poots Michael Keaton Kid Cudi

Did anyone else see this coming? A videogame racer featuring no characters – just cars – molded into a movie turns out to be rubbish. That headline’s too long though, so we had to explain it in this first bit. What’s more, Need for Speed didn’t even manage to beat out Mr. Peabody and Sherman or 300: Rise of An Empire at the box office, both of which have already been for a week.

Need for Speed Promo ImageIt's been a bad domestic start for NFS - hopefully it can rake it in internationally

This news will come as a major blow to Buena Vista, who will have undoubtedly hoped the star draw of Aaron Paul – who was on everyone’s lips at the end of last year for his brilliant role as Jesse Pinkman in Breaking Bad – would be enough to garner sufficient hype and make Need For Speed a financial juggernaut if nothing else.

Zac Efron Michael B. Jordan Imogen Poots Miles Teller

Next up in the world of vacuous teen flicks is That Awkward Moment, a film about three middle class dudes looking to 'score some chicks' in that thorny world of dating that presents us with such impossible conundrums as 'bros vs. hoes.'

That Awkward Moment
Three Guys Make A Pact To Stay Single: What Could Go Wrong?

The movie focuses on three early-twenties guys, Jason, Daniel and Mikey, who enter into a pact to stay single together after Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) splits from his girlfriend. Predictably, Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller) meet girls and try to keep their new flings on the low whilst pretending there's nothing more than casual sex going on.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Fans Petition For Casting Changes


Charlie Hunnam Dakota Johnson E.L. James Ryan Gosling Felicity Jones Alexis Bledel Matt Bomer Imogen Poots Christian Cooke Garrett Hedlund

Fans of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy are in uproar following the casting announcements on Monday. Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam will be playing Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the film adaptation of E.L. James' raunchy novels.

Charlie Hunnam
Charlie Hunnam has been cast as Christian Grey.

Fans may have their own ideas about who should portray the characters of E.L. James' bestselling series. However, it seems unlikely anything will change despite the outcry. The film's producer, Dana Brunetti, has defended the casting; tweeting in mock surprise of the negative comments. He went so far as to accuse those attacking the casting decision of not being "true fans".

A Late Quartet Review


Good

While this film has some bracingly strong observations on the nature of long-term professional and personal relationships, it also feels somewhat theatrical in the way its story develops. It's as if everything happens for an important reason, as ordained by the screenwriters. Fortunately, these terrific actors bring out riveting layers of meaning in their characters.

The title refers to the Fugue String Quartet, which has been at the peak of the classical music scene for 25 years. But their fragile balance is shaken when cellist Peter (Walken) is diagnosed with Parkinson's. Second violinist Robert (Hoffman) starts wondering if maybe he should be playing first chair, but he's feeling unsupported by his wife Juliette (Keener), who plays viola. Meanwhile, first violinist Daniel (Ivanir) wants to keep things as they are, although his lessons with Robert and Juliette's prodigy daughter Alex (Poots) are taking an unexpected turn into something steamy. Can the quartet's bond survive all of this?

All four actors underplay their roles perfectly, letting us see the internal workings of their relationships through their own private ambitions. Hoffman, Keener and Ivanir have especially dark edges to play with in every scene, even if their long-repressed issues make the film sometimes feel soapy. Walken is simply wonderful in a rare non-kooky role as a man facing a very difficult future with humour and emotion. On the other hand, Poots kind of gets lost in the shuffle, never really making much of her thinly written role.

Look Of Love Trailer


Paul Raymond became the wealthiest man in the UK when he opened the country's first strip club, the Raymond Revue bar, after starting out his nightlife career as a mind-reader cabaret performer. When the bar became highly successful among gentlemen everywhere, his risqué empire only grew into various men's magazines including 'Men's Only', 'Razzle' and 'Mayfair' not to mention spawning various new clubs across the entertainment district of London, Soho, earning him the nickname 'King of Soho'. Though, while loved and admired by thousands, he was also scorned in other circles and even his family began to suffer from the effects of his billion pound industry. His marriage to one of his strippers, Jean, did not meet an amicable end as he embarked on a whirlwind affair with a younger star, and his previously close bond with his daughter Debbie whom he loved more than anything in the world, was broken after her sudden death at the tender age of 36. This is the story of the triumphs and turmoil of Britain's richest man.

Zac Efron and Imogen Poots on set

Zac Efron hot footing it with his on-screen leading lady Imogen Poots on the set of Are We Officially Dating?

They're just on the set of their new film Are We Officially Dating? but boy howdy can you spot the chemistry between Zac Efron and his co-star Imogen Poots. The film is set in Manhattan and follows three Big Apple bachelors - including one played by High School Musical star Efron - as they enjoy living it up as singletons in New York. However, this wouldn't be a romantic tale without a big obvious twist, and so it does, with Efron's character meeting Poots' and the protagonist being forced to decide whether he'll carry on playing around at being one of the Lads, or whether he'll give into love. I think we all know which way that one's going don't we.

A Late Quartet Trailer


A quartet made up of first violinist Daniel, second violinist Robert, his wife and viola player Juliette and cellist Peter faces an uncertain future when Peter informs them of his recent diagnosis of Parkinsons disease which has resulting in him wishing to leave the quartet with immediate effect following their first show of the season. Him being the most talented of the four musicians, their musical cohesion is now under threat and it makes Robert consider what he wants for his future in the group. He expresses his feelings to Juliette and Daniel that he no longer wishes to play second violin exclusively, but perfectionist Daniel believes him to be insufficient for the role and Juliette tries to remind him that he must foremost consider the solidity of the quartet as a whole. Their disagreements cause a rift in the group, particularly in Robert and Juliette's marriage; Robert finds himself becoming more and more interested in a young dancer who he meets while jogging and Juliette and Daniel's relationship be

Jane Eyre Review


Essential
This umpteenth film adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's enduring classic perfectly captures the experience of reading the book. The story and characters envelop us so beautifully that we get lost in the experience.

After being orphaned as a child, Jane (Clarkson) is sent by her selfish aunt (Hawkins) to a grisly boarding school where she's falsely scorned as a liar.

When she leaves at age 18 (now Wasikowska), she works as a governess for the ward (Moore) of the mercurial Rochester (Fassbender), finding friendship with the housekeeper (Dench) and, surprisingly, romance with Rochester. Alas, this doesn't go well, and when she flees she finds solace with rural parson Rivers (Bell) and his sisters (Grainger and Merchant). Surely she deserves some good news.

FrightNight Review


Good
This remake of Todd Holland's 1985 schlock horror is more about the comedy than the terror, camping up the characters and indulging in grotesque effects shots.

Besides some cheap scares, it never generates a moment of suspense, but it's still good fun.

In suburban Las Vegas, Charley (Yelchin) is a nerdy teen with an impossibly hot girlfriend (Poots) and a feisty single mum (Collette). But there's something suspicious about the new neighbour Jerry (Farrell), whom Charley's best friend Ed (Mintz-Plasse) insists is a vampire. And as events start to get increasingly bizarre, Charley begins to believe it himself. He asks TV vampire expert Peter Vincent (Tennant) for advice, but Peter is a jaded showman who doesn't really believe in the supernatural. Or does he?

High school nerd Charley Brewster is in his senior year of high school and dating the popular beautiful British exchange student, Amy.

Chatroom Review


Weak
There's a great idea here, but this awkward and dated film struggles to bring the cyberspace experience to life in the form of a gritty teen thriller. The result is intriguing but never as scary or emotional as it's trying to be.

William (Johnson) is a troubled rich kid in North London who strains against the success of his novelist mother (Dodds). Obsessed with suicide, he spends his hours in online chatrooms, creating one that attracts four members: equally bored rich kid Eva (Poots), shy and lonely Jim (Beard), needy Emily (Murray) and Mo (Kaluuya), who struggles with unwanted urges. But it soon becomes clear that William is a predator who's out to unsettle and derail everyone around him. Will they catch on soon enough to stop his nefarious plan?

Jane Eyre Trailer


Director Cary Fukunaga adapts Charlotte Bronte's classic novel Jane Eyre. The plot stays true to the book and shows Jane at different stages of her life. It tries to show the darker and more gothic undertones that Bronte would've been surrounded by whilst she was writing the novel.

Cracks Review


OK
Gorgeously photographed, sharply acted and hauntingly moody, this period boarding-school drama keeps our interest even though the story is extremely thin. And there doesn't really seem to be much of a point to it.

It's 1934 England, and a group of girls rule their isolated school as members of the diving club coached by the impossibly glamorous Miss G (Green). Di (Temple) is the leader of the pack, and she's the one threatened when an aristocratic Spanish girl, Fiamma (Valverde), moves into their dorm room.

Fiamma is beautiful and worldly, and is also an expert diver, so the girls are immediately threatened by her presence. And while they start making her life miserable, Miss G is having her own unexpected reaction.

28 Weeks Later... Review


Very Good
The grisly 28 Weeks Later... jettisons the director, cast, and recurring characters from the original film -- Danny Boyle's 2003 nightmare vision 28 Days Later -- and keeps only the franchise's dynamic plot device: a rage virus that, in seconds, turns unsuspecting citizens into violent zombies. It's an effective way to wipe the slate clean before more blood is splattered across it.

Spanish filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo structures his picture less like a conventional sequel and more like a "next chapter" in the horror saga, which might explain why this fresh, energized, and clever installment works better than it should.
