  • post Lena Headey claims she was sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein - 18 October
  • Game of Thrones actor recounts producer marching her to his hotel room and reacting furiously to a rejection before warning her not to tell anyoneThe Game of Thrones actor Lena Headey has spoken of how she felt ?powerless? during an encounter with Harvey Weinstein, adding her voice to the growing number of women who have accused the producer of sexual misconduct.In a series of posts on Twitter, Headey said that Weinstein had spoken to her inappropriately at the Venice film festival and reacted with anger when she resisted his advances in a Los Angeles hotel.

  • post Snake Outta Compton: finally, the hip-hop monster movie the world's been waiting for - 18 October
  • Following the hallowed path marked out by Sharknado, this bargain-bin effort looks set to push the B-movie to new heights of self-aware silliness. We break down its trailerSharknado is old hat. Lavalantula? Passé. Supergator? Consider yourself retired. If you?re a fan of objectively bad films with stupid names about large animals, which you?ll watch drunk one night because it sounds funny (only to immediately realise that you much prefer films with things like plot and production design), you are in for a treat. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present Snake Outta Compton.I mean, I could just stop there. Really, the title is all you need to know about Snake Outta Compton. There?s a snake ? and let?s presume, given our affinity with the genre, that it?s quite a big snake ? and it terrorises Compton. The end. We can also assume that the title came long before the film, and that the budget is so tiny that we?ll only actually see the snake in about three scenes. Continue reading...
  • post French Aids drama BPM shows Hollywood how to capture gay history - 18 October
  • The Oscar-buzzed film is refreshingly queer, filled with an authenticity that sanitised disappointments such as Dallas Buyers Club and Stonewall still fail to include It has been a landmark year for LGBT cinema. From Moonlight?s Oscar victory to the triumphant Sundance premieres of gay romances God?s Own Country and Call Me By Your Name; from the transgender breakthrough of Chile?s A Fantastic Woman to the mainstream politicking of Battle of the Sexes, we?re seeing a wider-than-ever array of approaches to sexuality on film, no longer confined to the arthouse fringe.

  • post My Little Pony: The Movie review ? horsing around in cloud cuckoo land - 18 October
  • Emily Blunt lends her voice to the latest outing for a featherlight franchise that nods to minipops feminism while it flogging its kid-friendly merchandiseThe Hasbroisation of cinema continues apace, although after the relentless din of five Transformers and a Battleship, it?s almost a relief to be confronted with something of a more bucolic stripe. Scholars of the MLP canon should be advised that this full-length animation abandons the comparatively hip Equestria Girls strand of 2015?s Friendship Games ? wherein the ponies were magicked into smart-talking college students ? in favour of a return to the cloud cuckoo land from where the franchise comes. Thus we find earnest purple nag Twilight Sparkle?s efforts to stage the annual Friendship festival sabotaged by underbrushed outsider Tempest Shadow ? the latter voiced by Emily Blunt, who must have really loved these toys as a child to have wound up in this vicinity.

  • post Carry on up the Kremlin: how The Death of Stalin plays Russian roulette with the truth - 18 October
  • Armando Iannucci?s new film is a romp through some of the darkest days of the 20th century. But, asks one historian, is farce really the best way to understand the dictator?s murderous regime ? or its legacy in Russia today?My first memory of the outside world was watching my parents as they heard an announcement on the radio that Joseph Stalin was dead. The news was greeted not with relish but with awe and apprehension. The Soviet dictator was a colossal figure in the mid-20th century, even in the west. His death on 5 March 1953 was a reference point not just for the Soviet people but for the wider world. Now it is history.
    That is until now. With The Death of Stalin, director Armando Iannucci has brought the story surrounding the dictator?s last hours and the political scramble among his potential successors to a modern audience. The subject is a strange choice. Where the suicide of Hitler in the bunker has a squalid drama, captured effectively in the 2004 film Downfall, the death of Stalin has to have the drama squeezed out of it, drop by drop. He did not take his own life nor, as far as the evidence suggests, did anyone else. He died of natural causes at his dacha outside Moscow, surrounded by his fearful and sycophantic court.

  • post The Lego Ninjago Movie karate kicks Blade Runner 2049 off top of the UK box office - 17 October
  • The Snowman gets a slightly chilly reception, while arthouse audiences warm to animated biopic Loving Vincent and Sally Potter comedy The Party Opening in the UK with Ł3.64m, The Lego Ninjago Movie tops the box-office chart, elbowing aside Blade Runner 2049. It?s the second Lego-themed chart-topper this year, following The Lego Batman Movie in February. It?s also the fifth animated chart-topper, following Sing, The Lego Batman Movie, The Boss Baby and Despicable Me 3. Continue reading...
  • post Reese Witherspoon alleges sexual assault by director when she was 16 - 17 October
  • Actor says that agents and producers told her to remain silent about the incident, which she says was the first of many experiences of sexual assault and harassment throughout her careerReese Witherspoon has alleged that she was sexually assaulted by a director when she was 16, but was told to remain silent by agents and producers. The actor made the claims during a speech reflecting on the problems faced by women in the film industry at the Elle Women in Hollywood event on Monday, People reports. Witherspoon did not name the director in question but said that the incident was the first of many experiences of ?harassment and sexual assault? throughout her career. Continue reading...
  • post Back from the dead: is the slasher movie set to make a killing? - 17 October
  • The hit Happy Death Day hints at renewed interest in the masked killer genre, with Jamie Lee Curtis back in the Halloween saga and Scream getting revivedVampire in Brooklyn, Thinner, The Dentist, Leprechaun 3 ? the horror genre in the mid-90s was terrifying for all the wrong reasons. It was barely even a thing, at least outside of the very bottom shelf of Blockbuster, a place where kids would awkwardly hover before begging parents to let them watch some film about an evil laundry-folding machine.

  • post Turning to the dark side: is Luke Skywalker really the villain of Star Wars: The Last Jedi? - 17 October
  • In the new poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Mark Hamill?s character looms menacingly in the background ? just like his dear old dad Darth Vader used toWhen giant Snoke told us last time out that there had been an ?awakening?, most Star Wars fans assumed the alien overlord must be referring to Daisy Ridley?s proto-Jedi Rey and her madcap Force visions. But it?s becoming increasingly obvious in the run-up to Rian Johnson?s The Last Jedi that disturbances in the Force are more insidious and potentially wide-ranging. First came last week?s final trailer for the middle part of the new Star Wars trilogy, in which Ridley seems to be cosying up to Adam Driver?s sinister Kylo Ren. And this week there?s been plenty of talk online to the effect that Luke Skywalker himself might finally be set to turn to the dark side, 40 years after we first met the Tatooinian farm worker with the big dreams and impressive knack for bullseyeing womp rats.
