Meet The New Incarnations Of The Musketeers And Their Friends And Foes [Pictures]

The world's favourite swashbuckling quartet are back in a stunning new adventure series adapted by BBC One from Alexandre Dumas' 'The Three Musketeers' and starring an exceptional ensemble cast.

Tom Burke as Athos, Santiago Cabrera as Aramis, Luke Pasqualino as D'Artagnan and Howard Charles as Porthos
Athos, Aramis, D'Artagnan and Porthos

The new show is named merely 'The Musketeers' and, although is based on the main framework of the 1844 novel, is in fact a series of newly created escapades, occasionally inspired by the events of the original story. Creator Adrian Hodges wanted to go for something a little different from the last few decades of popular movie adaptions, which include Richard Lester's 1973 version starring Michael York and Charlton Heston, the 1993 Disney film with Chris O'Donnell and Tim Curry, and who could forget the animated adventure 'Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds'?

My Week With Marilyn Review


Very Good
Based on Colin Clark's memoirs, this film sometimes feels a bit too warm and nostalgic for its own good. But the performances are strong, and it's packed with terrific moments.

At age 23, Colin (Redmayne) is struggling to break into the movie business, camping out at the production offices of Laurence Olivier (Branagh), who is just about to start filming the 1957 comedy The Prince and the Showgirl with Marilyn Monroe (Williams). While Marilyn's diva behaviour and strict acting coach (Wanamaker) enrage Laurence, he can't deny that when she gets it right, she's magic. Meanwhile, Colin is assigned to help Marilyn make it through the shoot. And of course he can't help falling for her.

Metroland Review


Good
Metroland: a gritty post-modern thriller in the tradition of Blade Runner? Not quite. Metroland is actually a suburb of London, where Bale's character is questioning his life decision to marry Watson, after old friend and hedonist Ross shows up in town. Most of his anguish comes in the form of nostalgia over wild French ex-girlfriend Zylberstein, and rightly so. Dumping her for Watson was indeed a really, really stupid thing to do.

Tom & Viv Review


OK
Notable mainly because two of its stars were nominated for 1994 acting Oscars, Miranda Richardson and Rosemary Harris, Tom & Viv is 1994's biopic about the life and times of T. S. Eliot (Willem Dafoe) and his wife, Viv (Richardson). Richardson's performance as the poet's ill wife who slowly loses her mind thanks to turn-of-the-century drugs is fine: the best of the five nominees for Best Actress in my opinion. Harris plays Viv's mother, and she has about 12 dull lines. Plotwise, this self-absorbed tale goes nowhere after the first 15 minutes. Interesting is Richardson's character interpretation, but nothing more.
