He seems very familiar but I can't put my finger on it.

I know what you mean.  I thought it might be Michael Gambon at first, but it isn't.

That's an excellent make-up job they did.  I think knowing the character gives you a clue to the actor.  Still,  though, I could barely see it.

I'm the same. I know that I recognise him, particularly the eyes, but can't figure out who it is

For me, it was ONLY the eyes. I didn't know who it was either, but after reading it, I could just about see him in the eyes.

He is a stranger to no one that has our film habits.

Hint:

His first acting job was as an "uncredited extra" in ........

That was quite a break I would think.  Your first acting job was in a film that won the Oscar and BAFTA that year, for Best Picture.

He is a Brit.

The eyes, you say? Well ... they remind me of Toby Stephens.

You folks crack me up.  Below, down in the tweets was about Kenneth Branagh and his Shakespeare play coming up.  Also, I had it on the front page either yesterday or the day before.   LOL.

Well, he's totally unrecognizable! They even changed his eye color!

  • post Mary Poppins Returns review ?  a spoonful of state-of-the-art genetically modified sweetener - 12 December
  • Emily Blunt is the magical nanny in this scarily accomplished clone-pastiche sequel, which starts terrifically and ends cloyingly ? just like the originalWith pastel/primary colours of headspinning prettiness and all-new showtunes polished to a gleam, this sequel to the 1964 Disney standard Mary Poppins is an almost scarily accomplished clone-pastiche of the original, a spoonful of state-of-the-art genetically modified sweetener. It is written by David Magee, with music by Marc Shaiman and Scott Whitman ? with supervising input from legendary original songwriter Richard Sherman ? and directed by Rob Marshall. The first film was all about the magical nanny who flies in to help a family in Edwardian London ? a celebrated movie debut for Julie Andrews. This one takes place 20 or so years later; everyone else is older but Mary remains the same. In place of Andrews? guileless demeanour and serene self-belief, there is a subtly more worldly and droll-looking Emily Blunt, more clenched and ramrod in her bearing, who exaggerates and caricatures her natural English voice into the kind of poshness portrayed by American actors pretending to be a Brit: the sort of delivery that converts ?very? into ?veddy?.

  • post Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse proves Hollywood can't out-Marvel Marvel - 12 December
  • Ever since the success of Iron Man, rivals have been trying to match the studio?s box office success, but should they try another tack? Ever since Marvel leapt on to the scene 10 years ago with the vibrant and entertaining Iron Man, rivals have been doing their best to ape the studio?s barnstorming box office success. From Warner Bros?s struggling DC Extended Universe ? set to dip another toe in the comic book ocean with the upcoming Aquaman ? to Universal Pictures? doomed Dark Universe concept, Hollywood execs with dollar signs in their eyes have tried desperately to beat Marvel at its own game with varying degrees of success.The irony is that since 2018, the only truly successful superhero movies outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), with the notable exception of DC?s Wonder Woman, have been those that chose to smash the zeitgeist and strike out on their own. The Lego Batman Movie thrived by immersing itself in an Olympic-length swimming pool of geeky pop culture references; Logan reimagined the comic book flick as one-shot noir. Now comes Sony?s clumsily titled but refreshingly eccentric Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, out this week in the UK and due to hit US screens at the weekend. It?s a movie that does to the established big screen superhero formula what Hulk did to Loki in the first Avengers movie, leaving suggestions that the Marvel way is the only road to success in a bedraggled, defeated heap.

  • post The 10 best Australian films of 2018: zombies and swingers and ghosts, oh my! - 12 December
  • Bold and distinctive voices put forward uncompromising visions spanning many genresThe best Australian films of the year are a strikingly assured collection of works spanning many genres, from period pieces to science fiction, war drama and satire. If I had to pick a common trait it would be a tremendous sense of authorship; of bold and distinctive voices putting forward uncompromising visions. With that in mind it is hardly a coincidence that the majority of the films below were written or co-written by their directors.As usual, this list comprises feature films that received theatrical releases (not just screenings at film festivals) with one exception: the explosive and philanthropically funded experimental movie Terror Nullius, which is almost certainly never coming to a cinema near you.

  • post I'm dreaming of a dark Christmas: seasonal horror - 12 December
  • The release of Anna and the Apocalypse taps into a long tradition exploring the sadder side of the festive seasonWhen you think of Christmas movies, you think of James Stewart surrounded by his family on Christmas Eve, Will Ferrell in a silly, green suit wandering around New York City, Hugh Grant extolling the virtues of David Beckham?s feet while the dude from The Walking Dead bothers Keira Knightley with problematic placards. What you almost certainly don?t think of is a group of Scottish schoolkids singing catchy songs and beating zombies to death with enormous candy canes.That?s not the sugar-induced daydream of a bored north pole elf, but the concept behind the yuletide musical Anna and the Apocalypse, which arrives in UK cinemas at the end of November. It?s the latest film to take the lightness of Christmas and bash it against the macabre thrills of the horror genre in the hope of producing something that?s as freaky as it is festive. Movie history is littered with stories that have twisted the sweetness of Christmas, splattering blood on the baubles and thrusting carnage into the cranberry sauce. Continue reading...
  • post Ralph Breaks the Internet hangs on as Redford's swansong makes UK box office debut - 11 December

Takings declined by 39% from its opening weekend, and the tally after 10 days is Ł7.4m. Continue reading...

  • post The Favourite leads awards race with 14 Critics' Choice nominations - 10 December
  • Yorgos Lanthimos comedy edges Vice and A Star Is Born, while Escape at Dannemora and The Assassination of Gianni Versace did well in the TV sectionPeriod comedy The Favourite has solidified its position as an early leader in the awards race after securing 14 nominations in the Critics? Choice awards. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos and starring Olivia Colman as Queen Anne, The Favourite is up for best picture, best comedy, best director and best original screenplay, as well as receiving comprehensive nods for its cast: best actress and best comedy actress for Colman, best supporting actress for Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, and best ensemble.The Critics? Choice awards, given by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, are considered an accurate barometer of Oscar tastes: The Shape of Water took four awards here last year, when 17 out of 19 common categories had the same winner. It comes after last week?s somewhat inconclusive set of Golden Globes nominations, in which the Dick Cheney comedy Vice, with six nominations, just edged music-star drama A Star Is Born, The Favourite and race-discrimination road movie Green Book, all with five each.
