Fields noted that there was no recollection of unwanted touching during the dinner between Weinstein and Segel.

Before The Desolation Of Smaug's Release, The Weinstein Brothers Are Suing New Line For Their Cut Of The Profits


Harvey Weinstein Bob Weinstein

The Hobbit trilogy, which has been a highly profitable venture for New Line Cinema, is also causing some problems for the studio – namely a lawsuit from Harvey and Bob Weinstein. The two brothers own Miramax, the company, which sold New Line (part of Warner) the film rights to Tolkien’s story in 1998.

However, since New Line announced plans to make just one film, the Winesteins were only paid for the fist movie. According to them, the studio made the book into three separate film “solely to deprive plaintiffs” of agreed revenue.

The Future Is... Red? Netflix Bag Major Deal With Weinstein


Harvey Weinstein Bob Weinstein Netflix

Netflix have made yet another bold move – this time with movies – to try and secure monthly payments of £5.99 from content-happy consumers. They’ve put pen to paper with The Weinstein company, securing the rights to stream all of their movies from 2016.

This basically means two things: every film Weinstein releases will end up on Netflix once the movie has a physical release – i.e. DVD – and everything written about Netflix in the next few years will read like paid-for copy. They really are tying up the market.

"The deal that we've just completed with Netflix is probably the biggest deal in the history of the Weinstein Co.," co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. "Together, we are discussing ways to reinvent the pay-TV experience so that the audience can get even more for their money."

The Reader Review


Good
Mein Kampf meets Penthouse Forum in Stephen Daldry's The Reader, a chilly and surprisingly detached adaptation of Bernhard Schlink's passion play about a susceptible yet pensive teenage horn dog seduced by the former, female SS trooper who popped his cherry.

Reader reunites Daldry with his The Hours screenwriter, David Hare, and the two collaborate on another aloof, literary period picture. The action transitions between 1995 and 1958, when 15-year-old Michael Berg (David Kross) first comes under the spell of Hanna Schmitz (Kate Winslet), the stern but attentive woman who paid him a bit of kindness after the boy was felled by Scarlet Fever.

1408 Review


Very Good
You do not have to read the original short story "1408," part of the longer anthology Everything's Eventual: 14 Dark Tales, to know that the central idea comes from author Stephen King. In fact, one must assume that the movie was pitched in production meetings as "The Shining in New York." And while it's true that this cinematic take on "1408" recycles so many narrative strings tied to King's overall body of work, it somehow modifies them into a surprisingly fresh, tight and effective thriller.

Renowned travel writer Mike Enslin (John Cusack), like most characters in King's ouvere, is haunted by his own demons. Hiding behind alcohol and a refined cynicism, Enslin scours the country for legitimate haunted habitats, rating rooms on a "shiver scale." A bed-and-breakfast with good food but moderate mood gets five skulls, in his opinion. This movie, based on Enslin's most terrifying encounter, would receive a solid eight skulls.

The Great Raid Review


OK
Sometimes you can have the best story a filmmaker could ask for, a giant pile of money and all the best intentions, only to end up with what is ultimately a sub-par piece of work. Such is the dilemma of John Dahl's much-delayed The Great Raid, a gorgeous-looking film about an impossibly dramatic and yet mostly-forgotten real-life World War II rescue mission, which has everything going for it and yet never quite makes it to the finish line.

The facts are these: In 1945, as the American army is pushing back the Japanese in the Philippines, Tokyo has issued an order to exterminate every prisoner of war, an order enthusiastically carried out in the beginning of the film, which recreates an episode in which 150 U.S. POWs were covered in gasoline and set on fire. The Americans know that as they advance, the Japanese will do the same thing at every camp they get close to, and that the American Sixth Army is only days away from the camp at Cabanatuan, with over 500 prisoners - a starving and miserable bunch who survived the Bataan Death March and three years of privation only to face murder just as their fellow soldiers approach. So a team of 121 soldiers, mostly inexperienced Rangers, are ordered to sneak 30 miles behind Japanese lines and liberate Cabanatuan. It's a jury-rigged, rag-tag sort of mission, with the soldiers knowing it's a suicide detail, but also knowing they couldn't stand not to try.
