  • post 'Having a child is a distraction from your own mortality': Kathryn Hahn and Tamara Jenkins on their IVF film - 15 November
  • Hahn stars in Jenkins? new comedy about a couple struggling with infertility. They talk about whether feminism is to blame for encouraging women to wait before reproducing ? and why their film shouldn?t be dismissed as a chick flickEleven years ago, the director Tamara Jenkins was flying round the world promoting her second film, The Savages. A sad, frank comedy about suddenly caring for a father with Alzheimer?s, it won rave reviews, then Oscar nominations for Jenkins and star Laura Linney.Professionally, life was peachy. Privately, more rotten. Jenkins, who was then 45, and her husband, the screenwriter Jim Taylor, were trying unsuccessfully to start a family. Natural methods seemed a non-starter; medical intervention hit a brick wall; egg donation was fraught; international adoption was swaddled in red tape (no one over a certain age or weight, said China).

  • post The 20 best Marvel films ? ranked! - 15 November
  • Following the death of Stan Lee ? comic-book titan and prolific creator ? we examine the screen adaptations of some of Marvel?s greatest characters. Excelsior!No list of Marvel films ? or of any films ? can be without Nicolas Cage. Here he plays the terrifying Ghost Rider. By day: stunt motorbike rider Johnny Blaze. By night: a flaming skeleton forced by Satan to ride around collecting souls for hell on his lethal chopper. Continue reading...
  • post Lily James and Armie Hammer to star in Rebecca movie remake - 15 November
  • A new adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier novel will be directed by High Rise?s Ben WheatleyA new film version of Rebecca, based on Daphne du Maurier?s Gothic novel, is in the works, with Lily James and Armie Hammer confirmed in the lead roles.A 1940 adaptation of Rebecca, about a newly married woman oppressed by the memory of her husband?s first wife, was Alfred Hitchcock?s first Hollywood film, and won the best picture Oscar in 1940.

  • post 9 to 5 review ? Dolly Parton's quietly radical office revenge satire - 15 November
  • Thirty-eight years on, this tale of misogyny, kidnap and rattling typewriters is a boldly progressive piece of film-makingThis 1980 feminist revenge comedy, starring Dolly Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as three New York office workers who kidnap their misogynist monster of a boss, is rereleased nationally, tagged to the Comedy Genius season at London?s BFI Southbank. Parton?s pumpingly brilliant song over the opening credits declares: ?In the same boat / With a lot of your friends / Waiting for the day / Your ship will come in / And the tide?s gonna turn / And it?s all gonna roll your way.? Thirty-eight years on, is Parton?s prophecy being fulfilled?It was written by Patricia Resnick, who three years previously had been uncredited writer on Robert Altman?s experimental movie 3 Women, the trio of titular leads there possibly representing id, ego and superego. A PhD needs to be written on whether that interpretation applies to Parton, Fonda and Tomlin. From the perspective of today, 9 to 5 is a fascinating time capsule of the wage slavery and sexism of its time, with a great shot of a grimly vast office (as in The Apartment), a giant Xerox collating machine, and hulking, humming IBM golfball electric typewriters everywhere. 9 to 5 looks fiercer and more wayward than, say, the later Working Girl (1988), and, unlike that movie, it did not feel the need to balance the female characters with an emollient male romantic lead.

  • post Siberia review ? Keanu Reeves ices up as diamond geezer - 15 November
  • Reeves finds selling gems to the mob is trickier than he?d like in this violent romantic thriller, also starring Molly RingwaldKeanu Reeves is back in action, after a fashion, in this drab downer romantic thriller ? a less fighty, more arty version of John Wick from the indie director Matthew Ross (Frank & Lola). Fatally, the script requires Reeves, playing a black-market diamond trader, to do some serious acting over and above his usual stiff, stoical delivery of deadpan lines and punches.Reeves plays Lucas Hill, an American visiting St Petersburg to flog $40m of rare blue diamonds to a Russian mobster (Pasha D Lychnikoff, not exactly breaking the mould of Russian baddies). When his business associate vanishes with the ice, Lucas hotfoots it to Siberia on his tail, finding time to Facetime his wife (Molly Ringwald). I did wonder if pairing Reeves, 54, and Ringwald, 50, was an enlightened example of age-appropriate love interest casting. But no. In Siberia Reeves hooks up with bar owner Katya, played by Ana Ularu, 33. In a post-coital heart to heart, Reeves tells her that the word ?diamond? comes from the Greek adámas meaning ?unalterable?. He might well be describing his facial expressions. Continue reading...
  • post Disney's Rogue One spin-off must prove Star Wars can be so much bigger - 15 November
  • By finding new paths forward for the saga, the new TV series, based around rebel spy Cassian Andor, could usher in a brave new world of Star Wars filmsThere are many reasons most fans consider Rogue One to be among the greatest Star Wars movies. The keenest is perhaps that Gareth Edwards?s film gave us a glimpse into the grubbier corners of a galaxy, far, far away.Star Wars has always been about the greater good. But even Obi-Wan Kenobi?s decision to give up his life in the original 1977 Star Wars pales next to the sacrifice made by Rogue One?s crew of motley rebels, not least because Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Chirrut Îmwe et al go to their deaths in the full knowledge that they will not be coming back as Force ghosts. The end really is the end. Continue reading...
  • post Bradley Cooper wanted Jack White to star alongside Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born - 14 November
  • A profile of Gaga in Variety has identified the ex-White Stripes frontman as Cooper?s first choice in his directorial debut, before studio vetoed Jack White, the former frontman of rock duo the White Stripes, was set to play the lead role in A Star Is Born, according to reports. In a new profile of Lady Gaga in Variety, White is identified as the mystery musician director Bradley Cooper fancied for the part, before stepping in himself, apparently following pressure from the studio.After Clint Eastwood passed on the project at the start of this decade (having eyed Cooper and Beyoncé for the leads), Cooper took it on as his directorial debut in 2014 and began looking for likely contenders to play grizzled country star Jackson Maine.

  • post Actor Paz de la Huerta sues Harvey Weinstein, alleging rape and harassment - 13 November
  • Lawsuit claims movie producer raped De la Huerta twice, taunted her and damaged her careerThe actor Paz de la Huerta filed a lawsuit Tuesday accusing Harvey Weinstein of raping her in 2010 and then embarking on a campaign of harassment that harmed her career.The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles superior court alleges Weinstein raped De la Huerta twice in New York in December 2010, taunting her with phone calls between the two assaults. New York police said a year ago that they were investigating De la Huerta?s allegations. No charges have been filed in the case, but Weinstein is charged there with the rape of another woman.

  • Festive season hits the multiplexes as the animated grump climbs ahead of rockers, soldiers and WidowsKnocking Bohemian Rhapsody off the top of the UK box office after its two-week reign is The Grinch, the latest from Despicable Me animation house Illumination Entertainment. The Dr Seuss adaption begins with a solid if unspectacular Ł5.02m. In the US it performed better, with a $67.6m (Ł52.3) debut. Continue reading...
  • post Magazine defends 'Tarantino cretin' interview with Ennio Morricone - 13 November
  • German Playboy says it is ?surprised? by the film composer?s claim that he did not give the interviewThe German edition of Playboy magazine has defended its claim to have interviewed Ennio Morricone, in which the celebrated film composer allegedly said Quentin Tarantino was a ?cretin? and that his films were ?trash?.In a statement issued to the Guardian, Playboy said: ?We are surprised to hear that Ennio Morricone denies having given an interview to German Playboy. The conversation did in fact take place on 30 June 2018 at his property in Rome. The interview with German Playboy was arranged via the concert promotion company Semmel Concerts, who were also present. We are also confused by the claim that parts of the published statements were not made in this form.? Continue reading...
