Captain America: Civil War Review

Excellent

After the formulaic thrills of The Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron, Marvel's Avengers were in danger of getting stuck in a rut, but a smart script for this surprisingly focussed thriller kicks everything into a new direction. What's surprising is that the screenwriters have managed to incorporate a wide range of characters without the film ever feeling overcrowded. Each person has a journey to travel, so the actors get a chance to invest plenty of personality into the action.

After the events of Ultron, there's a political debate about the need to oversee the Avengers' missions. Iron Man Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) thinks a special UN council is a good idea, but Captain America Steve (Chris Evans) thinks that will limit the team's ability to help people. Then Steve's best pal Bucky (Sebastian Stan) is framed for a bombing, and Black Panther T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) is drawn into the fray. The Avengers are forced to take sides, with those supporting Bucky becoming outlaws. Tony recruits Spider-Man Peter (Tom Holland) to his team, while Steve drafts in Ant-Man Scott (Paul Rudd). And as they all face off against each other, none of them realise that this entire situation is being manipulated by a vengeful man named Zemo (Daniel Bruhl).

Watching this film requires the audience to suspend disbelief that these super-powered friends could be pushed to try to kill each other. That never quite makes sense, and indeed the script acknowledges this fact when one person goes down and everyone reacts emotionally. But the high-powered cast is so good at creating these intensely driven superheroes that it's not difficult to go with it.

Captain America: Civil War Trailer


The Avengers are suffering from an image crisis. As much good that they do and as many lives that they save, the superheroes also cause unlimited amounts of damage to cities and civilisation. The government wish to find an answer to this problem and they decide that all superheroes should be registered and held accountable for their actions. 

Tony Stark is brought in to begin talks on behalf of The Avengers, knowing how much damage he's personally done under his superhero disguise, Stark see the government's point and decides that a register wouldn't be entirely unwelcome. Captain America on the other hand has no such wishes; The Cap sees any government intervention as something beyond reasonable requirement. In the middle of all this is Cap's old friend Bucky who could be prosecuted under the new laws. As The Avengers are forced to split into two halves, it looks like there's going to be no way for the old team to form any kind of agreement. 

 As their opinions deepen and rivalries are deepens, certain members of Hydra begin to tighten their control and their plans for future domination of the world are getting stronger. The Avengers must find a way to put their differences aside in order to beat the real enemy.

Captain America: Civil War - First Look Trailer


As the world of Marvel super heroes become ever more entwined, Captain America: Civil War picks up where Ant-Man ends. As the Avengers take on more and more missions, the damage they cause is ever increasing and the government feel it's time to put an end to their unlimited power.

Captain America gains information so sensitive that he knows even his closest friends aren't going to believe it, Captain America and Falcon are alone. With The Avengers now broken into two sides, Captain America believing the superheroes shouldn't be regulated and Iron Man on the other, believing the government have a valid argument.

Can The Avengers overcome their differences and fight a new force that threatens to destroy the world as we know it. Captain America: Civil War sees many of our favourite Marvel character appear, these include: Black Widow, Hawkeye, Spider-Man, Black Panther & War Machine.

Julian Assange Hates It, But Critics Laud Benedict Cumberbatch's 'Fifth Estate' Performance


Benedict Cumberbatch Daniel Bruhl

Arguably the most controversial organisation of the 21st century, WikiLeaks has sparked intrige and outrage in equal dose since it was launched at the beginning of the century. The Fifth Estate is the first real dramatisation of the event behind the controversial website, and although not everyone is impressed by the film, WikiLeaks found Julian Assange in particular, many have been taken by the man playing the Australian; Benedict Cumberbatch.

The golden boy of British cinema (and just acting in general) right now, Cumberbatch has been given nothing short of sheer admiration for his portrayal of the divisive Assange. The film itself is proving to be as divisive as Assange and WikiLeaks though, as critics have been unable to decide on whether the film is actually any good.

It Was Always Going To Be Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs For The Box Office This Weekend

As expected, predicted and prophesized, the wonderfully strange world of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 enticed enough families to propel it to the top of the weekend box office.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 proved magical enough.

It didn’t manage to outgun Hotel Transylvania, though, as the animated comedy grabbed $35m - $7.5m less than the spooky flick managed last September.

Ron Howard Hadn't Heard Of 'Rush' Driving Legends Until He Read Script


Ron Howard Niki Lauda Daniel Bruhl Chris Hemsworth

Director Ron Howard has admitted that he'd never hear of 1970s Formula One race car drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt until screenwriter Peter Morgan (Frost/ Nixon) handed him the Rush script and even then he had to research the legendary European drivers using Wikipedia. Why then, having no particular interest in racing, especially that which took place across the pond forty years ago, did Apollo 13 director Howard decide that turning the story of F1 rivalries into his upcoming movie, Rush, would be a good idea?

Ron Howard
Ron Howard's Latest Movie Rush Was A Bit Of A Risk.

Ron certainly took a risk; with sports movies, the storyline can get lost in the detail so it's vital that there's a passionate force behind it making sure audiences can feel every emotion. Howard explained to the Wall Street Journal how he managed to translate his learning curve into a movie that will be accessible to all audiences, including the female market, regardless of whether they follow racing or have any mechanical knowledge.

Chris Hemsworth's 'Rush' Depicts One Of The Most Fierce Rivalries In Sport


Chris Hemsworth Daniel Bruhl Ron Howard

The Formula One thriller 'Rush' premiered in London last night (2nd Septmeber 2013). The biopic film follows the bitter rivalry that ensued between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda from the 1976 F1 season.

The two protagonists share a common interest but could not be more different, as this dynamic face off is expected to give a shock of adrenaline for the viewing audience.

James Hunt, who is played by Australian actor Chris Hemsworth (Thor), is a British racer who loves the playboy lifestyle as his taste for drugs, alcohol and women were infamous. Whereas Germany's Daniel Bruhl (Inglorious Bastards) portrays the Austrian Niki Lauda who was a master tactician which allowed his ruthlessness to thrive in Formula 1.

Following the relatively disappointing 'The Dilemma', Oscar wining director Ron Howard is back with his latest movie 'Rush', an biographical flick about the rivalry between Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauder during the 1976 motor racing season. Set against the backdrop of the 'golden age' of the sport, the story certainly lends itself well to the big screen, with the handsome English playboy Hunt attempting to outdo his methodical, driven opponent Lauda. Off course, there's focus on the driver's personal lives though ultimately Howard's latest movie explores how far each sportsman will push to be hailed world champion in a sport where one mistake could be fatal.

The movie boasts a pretty slick looking cast, with Hollywood favourites Chris Hemsworth (Hunt) and Olivia Wilde (Suzy Miller) in the forefront and the brilliant Daniel Bruhl playing Lauda. The movie was shot on location in the UK, Germany and Austria with some scenes filmed at the former World War II airfield of Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire. Kent racing track Brands Hatch also features, as does Nurburgring in Germany. Howard described the period as a "fascinating, sexy, dangerous time," telling Colldier.com, ".it's based on a true story and it's centered around the 1976 Formula One race season. It operates on so many different levels that I really need to use the medium, in pre-production, production and post-production, to try to immerse the audiences in that world, "adding, "So, while Peter Morgan has written the script, and it's emotional, funny and character-driven, first and foremost, I think that the sense of the time, the place, the world, the speed and the danger of it."

Rush Trailer


James Hunt is English Formula 1 champion well-known for his hedonistic life of women, alcohol and parties and who makes for a stark contrast to his number one rival, the Austrian Niki Lauda. It's the 70s, the golden age for racing, and the pair are riled up to outrun each other in the upcoming 1976 German Grand Prix. However, no-one could predict the tragedy that would soon ensue when Lauda's car fails and bursts into flames on the track, causing him severe burns to his face and body. Hunt blames himself for the accident, as he helped encourage the race to go ahead without the suggested safety arrangements. In spite of all this, the pair are determined to become champions, against all odds but as the professional lives interrupts their personal lives, becoming a champion becomes much more complicated than just winning a race.

'Rush' is a sports drama based on the shocking true story of these two real F1 drivers when their lives took a dramatic turn at the height of car racing. It has been directed by Ron Howard ('Willow', 'Apollo 13', 'The Da Vinci Code') and written by Peter Morgan ('The Queen', 'The Other Boleyn Girl', 'The Last King of Scotland'), and it is set for release this autumn on September 13th 2013.

It looks as though producers working on the forthcoming WikiLeaks movie The Fifth Estate have well and truly nailed the casting process. Based on the book by Guardian writers David Leigh and Luke Harding, the movie is now officially in production, and the first on-set photograph shows Benedict Cumberbatch in full garb as the whistleblowing anti-hero Julian Assange. The Sherlock stars looks pretty impressive with dyed white-blond hair and the Swede's signature green parka.

Inglorious Basterds star Daniel Bruhl also looks the part as Assange's confidant Daniel Domscheit-Berg. The movie, written by The West Wing's Josh Singer, began principal photography at an undisclosed location this week. It focuses on the early dates of the non-profit site that became notorious for leaking secret information and military news leaks. In November 2010, Assange and WikiLeaks collaborated with major global media organisations to release U.S. State department "cables." The movie is said to focus on the website's early days, and - according to the Guardian - is tipped as a "celluloid document of Assange's meteoric rise into the public consciousness."

WikiLeaks Movie 'The Fifth Estate' Starring Benedict Cumberbatch Sees First Light


Benedict Cumberbatch Julian Assange Bill Condon Daniel Bruhl

The contemporary social biopic has dug a niche for itself in popular cinema, spearheaded lately by such movies as The Social Network. They examine the lives of those who have been influential in contemporary history, and whose influences are still felt. 2013 will hold a host more, including the much anticipated movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch, about Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, now known to be title The Fifth Estate.

According to EW, Dreamworks have just released news that 'principal photography has commenced'. "Now titled The Fifth Estate, the film traces the meteoric rise of the site through the eyes of Assange colleague Daniel Domscheit-Berg" they write. Bill Condon is directing, he's responsible for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, which for many is foreboding rather than exciting, but working with a script from The West Wing writer Josh Singer he's beginning with better material, so hopefully that translates and the movie unfolds. 

Alongside Cumberbatch's Assange, Daniel Brühl plays Domscheit-Berg and Laura Linney,  David Thewlis, Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), and Alicia Vikander provide a talented supporting cast. Clearly, the team behind Condon is a step above the Steward/Pattinson group as part of Twilight, so despite certain reservations around the director, there's enough good news for us to be a little excited about The Fifth Estate. With its central character still an international fugitive, there is heightened poignancy to its content. Expect its release to hit around November this year, just in time for the awards season.

7 Days In Havana Review


Good
There's plenty of colour and culture in this anthology, which could have been titled La Habana Te Amo, to match the similarly uneven Paris Je T'Aime and New York I Love You. It has moments of artistic inventiveness, but barely breaks the surface.

On Monday, an American (Hutcherson) moves to Havana to start film school, connecting with a friend (Cruz) who takes him for a night on the town. Tuesday, filmmaker Kusturica arrives to accept an award, then escapes to a jazz club with his driver (Abreu). Wednesday, a Spaniard (Bruhl) tries to recruit a Cuban singer (Estevez) to work in Europe, but her baseball-player boyfriend (Benitez) has other plans. Thursday, a Palestinian (Suleiman) struggles to make sense of the local culture. Friday, a teen (Herrera) is put through a ritual to cure her lesbian tendencies. Saturday, a woman (Ibarra) tries to hold her family together by working two high-pressure jobs. And Sunday, a woman (Amore) obeys the Virgin and gets her family to install a pond in her sitting room.

Intruders Review


Weak
Fractured into two narratives that take far too long to come together, this stylish boogeyman thriller never convinces us that anyone is in actual peril.

And without understanding the connections between the characters, we can't engage with the story.

In Spain, Luisa (Lopez de Ayala) is trying to help her young son Juan (Corchero) cope with terrifying nightmares of a hooded, faceless man who invades his room at night. Juan calls him Carahueca, or Hollowface, and gets no help from the kindly local priest (Bruhl). Meanwhile in England, John and Susanna (Owen and van Houten) have no idea how to help their 12-year-old daughter Mia (Purnell), who is paralysed by fear that Hollowface is coming to get her too. And her counsellor (Fox) recommends something that seems to make everything worse.

Continue reading: Intruders Review

Intruders Trailer


Juan is an 8 year old boy living in Madrid who loves to tell stories using his vivid imagination. At night, his sleep is disrupted every night by increasingly horrific dreams. His mother is concerned that his storytelling is providing the fuel for these dreams and doesn't believe what Juan tells her; that a faceless demon is appearing to him every night. As his health declines, Juan's mother starts to realise that Juan is not being haunted by an imagined threat brought on by nightmares, as she first thought but an all too real danger that could put an end to Juan's life.

The Edukators Review


OK
Is there any room for social activism in this day of lockstep capitalism? How does one militate against a system when one is too busy just trying to make ends meet? Indeed, the machinery of what one character in Hans Weingartner's The Edukators calls a "capitalist dictatorship" depends on the subjugation of the weak and the poor -- those mostly likely to revolt -- so that the rich can remain in power. It's not a revolutionary observation, but it remains a provocative one and forms the basis of Weingartner's seriocomic parable, which he co-wrote with Katharina Held.

In such an unjust society, what's a pretty girl to do? If you're the hapless Julie (Julia Jentsch), you scrape by as a waitress in an upscale restaurant, struggling to pay your rent, chafing all the while under the glare of your snide superiors. Julie's lot only gets worse when she's booted from her apartment and, soon after, from her job. Luckily, her boyfriend, Peter (Stipe Erceg) offers to put her up in his hovel -- one he already shares with Jan (Daniel Brühl), his close friend and political confidante.

Love In Thoughts Review


Excellent
I wasn't expecting much from this movie. It's called -- appallingly -- Love in Thoughts (or at least that's how it's loosely translated from German), and the cover shows two young men with their shirts unbuttoned, standing in a field of golden grain.

Well, you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover and you shouldn't judge a DVD by one, either.
