  • post A John Wick 'expanded universe' ? Hollywood's most idiotic idea yet? - 27 July
  • Keanu Reeves? ultraviolent action series offered B-movie thrills, but spinning it into a multi-stranded franchise underlines the industry?s creative bankruptcyIf you have seen John Wick: Chapter 2 ? and I can tell from the desensitised look in your eyes that you have ? you will know that one scene stands out above all others. It?s the scene in which the baddie orders a hit on Wick and all of a sudden Keanu Reeves is fighting off attacks at every turn. There?s a sumo wrestler. There?s a woman whose violin is also a bazooka or whatever. There?s row after row of visually arresting but disposable goons. It is a diverting sequence, and quite a fun one.Or at least it was. Because now it has been announced that Wick is getting his own expanded universe, which means that all those godforsaken goons are bound to end up with a film of their own. The first step of the expanded universe will be Ballerina, about a female assassin who has to kill some other assassins. If that goes well, who knows, maybe there will be a film about that sumo guy killing some assassins, then a film about Wick?s new dog killing some assassins, then it will culminate in an Avengers-style denouement where Wick just stands on top of a pile of already-dead assassins for two hours and shrugs.

  • post Hounds of Love review ? blood-chilling, stomach-turning ordeal horror - 27 July
  • Ben Young?s brilliant drama, based on a real-life serial killer couple who preyed on teenage girls, is beautifully photographed and unwatchably painfulThere could hardly be a tougher watch around than this brutal and brilliant independent film from Australia, based on the real-life case of serial killer couple David and Catherine Birnie in 1980s Perth and what became known as the ?Moorhouse murders?.

  • post From suburban housewife to porn star at 52: the emancipation of Morgana - 26 July
  • Suffering from depression at the end of an unhappy marriage, Morgana Muses found a new lease on life by making body-positive, anti-ageist BDSM filmsA turquoise-haired woman takes the stage at Berlin?s Porn Film Festival in stiletto boots and an evening dress split high up the thigh. The snigger from a couple in the audience is barely audible, but then, the woman is attuned to it. She stiffens for a second, and takes the microphone. ?You can laugh if you like,? she says, ?but darling, I was a young, gorgeous creature once ? and you?re going to be my age one day.?Applause.

  • post The incredible Jessica Williams: 'Great comedy comes from feeling like you've gotten punched up' - 26 July
  • The Daily Show?s ?senior Beyoncé correspondent? talks about taking on Fox News, the secret to political comedy ? and her new film The Incredible Jessica James, about a woman struggling to find love in the age of TinderWhen Jessica Williams enters the room at Manhattan?s Bryant Park Hotel, her long arm extended for a handshake, she lets out a spontaneous belch. ?Excuse me!? she says, hand over mouth, surprised by the untimely salutation.If anyone can make burps endearing, it?s the former Daily Show correspondent. Williams was in a college cafeteria when she got the call from Comedy Central that made her the show?s first black female reporter. ?I was at the Panda Express with my best friend,? she says. ?I just started screaming, everybody?s looking at us, rolling their eyes, trying to eat their orange chicken.? She was 22 at the time, a senior at California State University, Long Beach, a 30-minute drive from her childhood home. Continue reading...
  • post Bloodless, boring and empty: Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk left me cold - 26 July
  • Nolan?s celebrated story of the evacuation at Dunkirk trades guts and glory for a 12A airbrushed rendering of history. The true story is much more complex ? and movingIs it just me? Christopher Nolan?s Dunkirk has bowled over critics and taken $100m (Ł77m) at the global box office in barely a week, but it left me cold.
    The subject sounds enticing: the legend of Dunkirk tells of an array of unprepared civilians assembling an armada of fishing boats, pleasure craft, yachts, motor launches, paddle steamers, barges and lifeboats to rescue an army from a battle-swept beach. What might cinema reveal of the logistical skills, resourcefulness, courage, doubts, arguments and fears of the citizenry involved?

  • post UK film industry on a roll as it helps keep economy growing - 26 July
  • ONS highlights role of sector as foreign movie and TV studios are attracted to Britain by government tax breaks and weak poundThe British film production boom, including the Han Solo spin-off from Star Wars and a live action remake of Disney?s Dumbo, is helping boost services industry growth as other sectors flag.?Motion picture activities? ? including production activity and income from box office hits such as Wonder Woman, Beauty and the Beast and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ? were singled out by the Office for National Statistics on Wednesday as playing a significant role in the modest growth in UK GDP reported in the three months to the end of June.

  • post Yann Demange rumored as frontrunner to direct next Bond film - 26 July
  • The ?71 director tops the shortlist of potential directors for the new 007 film, followed by Arrival?s Denis Villeneuve and Hell or High Water?s David MackenzieThe director Yann Demange is the frontrunner to direct the next Bond movie, which has a tentative release date of 8 November 2019, according to a report in Variety.

  • post James Bond film confirmed for 2019 ? but no word on who will play 007 - 25 July
  • New York Times have quoted anonymous sources saying Daniel Craig will reprise his role, but neither lead actor nor director have been confirmedHe is the original international man of mystery ? so perhaps it is not surprising that there is still a cloak of secrecy over who will take on the mantle of James Bond in the secret agent?s next outing. Film company Eon Productions, which produces Bond movies, and Metro Goldwyn Mayer, which owns the rights to the long-running franchise, said on Tuesday that the latest instalment would be released in November 2019.

  • post Dunkirk outguns blockbuster competition at UK box office - 25 July
  • Christopher Nolan?s intelligent war movie does refreshingly well at multiplexes and arthouse cinemas, while Despicable Me 3 breaks the Ł30m barrierWhile summer is traditionally a strong season for multiplex cinemas, it can prove a tough challenge for venues trying to offer an alternative to Hollywood blockbusters, since the most commercially potent arthouse fare tends to cluster into autumn and winter for awards season. Which means the arrival of Dunkirk was greeted by the indie-cinema bookers with a combination of relief and joy: an intelligent mainstream film they could programme without fear of embarrassment, and with appeal that cuts across the demographics.

  • post La La Land meets Isle of Wight in Minghella Jr?s debut as a director - 22 July
