Danny Dyer Jeremy Kyle

‘EastEnders’ actor Danny Dyer has always been one of the more comically outspoken celebrities in the Britsh media, and now he’s taken aim at another target: ITV daytime presenter Jeremy Kyle.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show to Nick Grimshaw on Thursday (November 19th), to discuss his ongoing role as pub landlord Mick Carter in the long-running soap opera as well as plug his new book – more on that later – the actor launched a stinging attack on Kyle.

Danny Dyer

Danny Dyer and Kellie BrightIs Danny Dyer going to take over Albert Sq.?

Dyer, often ridiculed by movie critics despite pulling in considerable cash, particularly on DVDs, will play Mick Carter, brother to Shirley Carter, played by Linda Henry. Described as a "bloke's bloke" (what, really?), Mick will be joined behind the bar by his wife Linda, played by actress Kellie Bright.

Danny Dyer Joins Soap-Opera. It's Neither Of The Ones You're Thinking Of.


Danny Dyer Harold Pinter

Danny Dyer, the actor once branded one of the most promising young actors in Britain after his excellent turn in Human Traffic, has joined the cast of Hollyoaks, Later. The new series of the raunchier version of Hollyoaks will star stalwart Nick Pickard battling cancer and Dyer playing a ruthless ex-pat known only as 'The White Man.'

Danny DyerDanny Dyer Smoking Outside The ITV Studios

Dyer - who has bizarrely been typecast as a hard man - will cause serious problems from  the Hollyoaks cast with "with high-stakes poker, Russian roulette and kidnapping all on the cards," according to MTV. Jane Steventon, producer of Hollyoaks Later, said: "I'm thrilled that we have brought together such an amazing cast for this year's Later and with the addition of Danny Dyer, the adventures can really kick off." The new series will see Nick organizing a get-together with old pals Kurt Benson, Finn and brother Dom in a bid to face his demons, however, a dodgy deal from village hard man Trevor Royle sees the gang fall foul of Dyer's shadowy character. The new series of the Hollyoaks Later will air on E4 in the autumn.

Hot Tickets! US Movie Releases: 'Safe Haven' And 'A Good Day To Die Hard' Battle It Out For Worst Valentine's Weekend Movie


Josh Duhamel Julianne Hough Ryan Gosling Zac Efron Bruce Willis Emma Thompson Jeremy Irons Danny Dyer

Ah, Valentine’s Weekend. That thing that doesn’t actually exist because there’s only actually one day that’s officially attributed to Valentine’s Day but it does exist in the world of the movie box office. It’s the weekend for people who were too stingy to take their partners out of actual Valentine’s Day, because all of the prices are inflated, to schlep over to the local movie theatre, with a rose between their teeth for no good reason and treat their loved one to a terrible, terrible movie.

That’s right. Normally, we like to give our readers a few tips and pointers with regards to the upcoming box office releases for the forthcoming weekend, make a few recommendations, etc etc. Well, this week, can we simply suggest that you stay home? What we appear to have on our hands this week is the biggest collection of cinematic flops since as far back as we can remember. Or at least since last Valentine’s Weekend.

First up, if you’re still interested in learning which films you should not go to see this weekend, is Safe Haven. A woozy adaptation of yet another Nicholas Sparks novel. Yes, we loved The Notebook. Yes, OK, we admit, what we mean is we loved Ryan Gosling in The Notebook. And yes, we suppose that Zac Efron did a pretty good job in The Lucky One. But it takes more than a pretty couple (Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough) to make a successful adaptation of one of Sparks’ ever-popular tear-jerk romance novels.

Age Of Heroes Review


Weak
Ambitiously tracing the story of Britain's first Special Forces mission, this film's shoestring budget is just far too apparent, making it impossible to take seriously. But it has its moments.

In 1940, Captain Jones (Bean) is assigned to lead a clandestine mission into occupied Norway to capture German technology that could turn the tide of the war. He recruits a team of crack commandos, including the brave hothead Rains (Dyer) and the Norwegian-Yank Steinar (Hennie). But they have a very rough landing in Norway, their spy contact (Miko) isn't who they expect and the ruthless Nazis quickly catch up with them. Can they get in, do their job and get out? Or will they need plan B?

Pimp Review


OK
There's a lurid atmosphere to this low-budget film that efficiently plunges us into a place that's almost overwhelmingly seedy. But the filmmakers fudge their faux doc structure and don't create a single character we care about.

A documentary crew is spending a week with low-life pimp Woody (Cavanah) on the streets of London, but what begins as an average series of events soon spirals into something much more sinister as Woody tries to protect his favourite hooker Bo (Chan) from the Chinese mafia while being pressured by his gangster boss (Dyer). Woody's life is full of movers and shakers, all buzzing around on their own specific errands, just like he is. Surely one of them knows what happened to a Ukrainian prostitute who has gone missing.

Continue reading: Pimp Review

Pimp Trailer


Woody is a pimp and fixer for his boss Stanley and Soho in London is their territory. When Woody agrees to be filmed by a documentary film crew he doesn't expect his week to be filled with so much commotion. Being beaten up by his landlord for late payment of rent is the least of his worries. When he discovers that one of his girls has gone missing, a hunt begins to find her. A rival Chinese gang also appears to be moving into Woody's terrain. It could be the start of a brutal turf war. Realising his life up until now doesn't really give much to his future, Woody starts to question if it's time to make a move away from his lifestyle which is starting to spiral out of control.

Malice In Wonderland Review


OK
Packed with references to Lewis Carroll's classic, this modern-day London romp is extremely well-made and nicely played by the strong cast. On the other hand, the British crime genre is more than a little tired by now.

Alice is a young woman (Grace) running from a couple of thugs when she's hit by a cab driven by Whitey (Dyer). She can't remember who she is, so he takes her along to meet the gangster Gonzo (King). Then Whitey learns that her wealthy dad (Hagon) is offering a $10 million reward for her return. And as Alice travels around London following clues to her identity, she meets a variety of eccentric characters. Ultimately, Whitey and Alice converge on a nightclub run by the mob boss Harry (Parker).

Severance Review


OK
The creators of Severance came up with a great pitch: it is, according to their press kit, The Office (presumably the U.K. version, as this is a British film) meets Deliverance. The problem is, I'm not sure if they came up with the pitch before or after they made the film; at its best, the resemblance is cosmetic.

In fact, the aspect of the British Office that Severance imitates most in its opening scenes is that show's occasional avoidance of actual satire in favor of invoking general malaise. We find members of the Palisades Defense sales team bussing their way to a team-building retreat; they're vaguely miserable, save for smarmy boss Richard (Tim McInnerny) and his suck-up assistant (Andy Nyman). But echoes of Brent and Gareth aside, this small group of sad-sacks looks like pretty much any other gang of Brit-com misfits: the slacker/stoner (Danny Dyer), the bumbling git (Nyman), the nerdy girl (Claudie Blakley), and the pompous guy (Toby Stephens). There's also a pretty American (Laura Harris) who all of the gents seem to fancy.

Continue reading: Severance Review

Mean Machine Review


OK
Paramount Classics is eager to inform you that Mean Machine, a remake of Robert Aldrich's 1974 film The Longest Yard, is from the same people who brought you Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. Given the expectations this creates, it's no surprise that what's delivered is diverting, fast paced and, of course, violent. In the end Mean Machine is also utterly disposable, but goes down quickly and painlessly. Danny Meehan (Vinnie Jones) is an ex-soccer (football to you Brits) star, who finds himself serving a three-year prison sentence after drunkenly assaulting two policemen. When Meehan arrives at jail, he discovers that the prison governor (David Hemmings) has his mind set on the man taking over coaching duties of the guard soccer team. The plan is undermined by the fact that the guards won't allow a prisoner to be their coach, and several of them explain their feelings to the new celebrity convict in no uncertain terms. A lunchroom scuffle leads Danny to a stay in solitary confinement, where he is presented with an idea by a fellow inmate named Massive (Vas Blackwood): Tell the governor that you are going to build a team of prisoners to square off in a game against the guards. Meehan takes the advice and with the help of Massive and seen-it-all prison veteran Doc (David Kelly), assembles a makeshift squad for the monumental event. But if you thought Meehan's troubles ended there, you are sorely mistaken. He also has to contend in a power struggle with the leader of the inmates, Sykes (John Forgeham), whose authority in the prison outweighs that of the governor. There's also a matter of a notorious incident from Meehan's past when he "threw" an important soccer match in order to pay off a large gambling debt. Meehan braves all of the obstacles and eventually prepares his athletically crude unit, now known as The Mean Machine, a bit too well in the eyes of the governor, who has placed a huge wager (thanks to a tip by the double crossing Sykes) on the team of guards to try and pay off his own debt to a bookie. When the prisoners take a lead in the no-holds-barred match, the governor demands that Meehan revisit his game-throwing tendencies.

Executive Producer Guy Ritchie's influence is more than slightly evident in first time feature director Barry Skolnick's style. You get the requisite mini music videos, a camera which refuses to sit still, shots that don't appear on screen for more than a few seconds (what ever became of the art of composition?), and an abundance of stylized violence tossed in for good measure. Many of Ritchie's regular actors are along for the ride too, such as Jones (who's actually asked to do more than just wear his patented steely glare), Blackwood, Jason Flemyng, and most notably Jason Statham, as martial arts savvy psychopath Monk.

Continue reading: Mean Machine Review

Human Traffic Review


Extraordinary
Any movie about the underground music scene is a difficult beast to master. Any meaning found in the underground is usually lost by the dumbing-down of the experience to make it "more accessible" to the general public. Or the film is produced and directed by people that have about enough understanding of the subject matter that they ought to work as production assistants for VH1. Human Traffic, a new film exploring the British underground party/rave scene and the people immersed in the world of clubbing, pubbing, drugs, sex, and the beautiful, beautiful music, is an example of how it really ought to be done.

The film follows five Brits in their young twenties during a wild weekend of parties, drugs, dancing, sex, pop culture discussions, relationships, and wanking off in front of a mirror while mum interrupts. The cast of character consists of Jip (John Simm), our narrator, who has a bit of a problem with his willy, known as Mr. Floppy. Koop (Shaun Parkes), our black DJ maestro, who has insecurity issues, afraid his girlfriend Nina (Nicola Reynolds) is shagging other men. Nina herself can't stand her McJob and longs for the freedom of the weekends. Lulu (Lorraine Pilkington), Jip's best mate, is tired of her cheating boyfriends. And Moff (Danny Dyer) can't seem to escape the black hole of his awful life. The film follows these five individuals during one weekend as each of them discovers love, friendship, and self-fulfillment, all against the raging party background.

Greenfingers Review


Excellent
My summer was recently saved by two very different movies. On opening night, I saw American Pie 2 and laughed like a moron. Then a few nights later, I watched and thoroughly enjoyed Joel Hershman's Greenfingers even though it didn't feature a trip to band camp, girl-on-girl action, or Seann William Scott.

However, I felt just as good leaving American Pie 2 as I did after leaving Greenfingers, which tells the offbeat tale of British murderer Colin Briggs (Clive Owen of Croupier). After spending roughly half of his life behind bars, he is transferred to a more lenient facility, Edgefield. The picaresque, rustic prison allows its inmates to learn a trade, while enjoying accommodations generally found at most colleges.

Continue reading: Greenfingers Review

High Heels And Low Lifes Review


OK
If you're at all intrigued by the idea of High Heels and Low Lifes, I recommend seeing it as soon as possible, because this little movie will be gone from theaters in two weeks -- at most -- and that means you'll have to wait at least 90 days before it hits video.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: Two crazy girls overhear a crime going down, then decide to turn the tables on the criminals by extorting some cash for themselves. Hilarity ensues! Oh, you have heard it... well this time it's different -- you see, one girl is British and one is American.

Continue reading: High Heels And Low Lifes Review

Human Traffic Review


Good

Somewhere between the cheery comedic teen angst of a Brat Pack movie and the stylishly dingy, drug-ravaged night life of "Trainspotting," you'll find the fresh-faced, fun-loving, Ecstasy-dropping, Welsh weekend warriors that populate the party-hardy world of "Human Traffic."

A capricious and energetic, rave-flavored tour through a bouncy Friday-Saturday-Sunday of dance and romance in the lives of five club-hopping pals on the cusp of their 20s, this lightweight snapshot of edgy Y2K youth culture has nothing new to say about sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll -- but it says that nothing with irresistibly enthusiastic effervescence.

The story is narrated with hyperactive chirp by Jip (John Simms), a soft-featured Tim Roth look-alike who blows off steam from his weekdays in retail hell by getting squiffy with his mates and dancing the night away.

Continue reading: Human Traffic Review

High Heels & Low Lifes Review


Weak

I have two things I need to get off my chest right off the bat about "High Heels and Low Lifes." The first is, I'm dumbfounded that nobody at Hollywood Pictures was bright enough to catch and correct the grammatically erroneous title. Call it a pet peeve, but "Lowlifes" is one word, for cryin' out loud.

The second is, despite the fact that I'm about to rip into this picture for its non-stop, intelligence-insulting assault of idiotic clichés, plot holes, predictability and common sense chasms, "High Heels" has such an infectious, lively spirit that I wish it could have been better.

Minnie Driver and Mary McCormack play ditzy post-feminist pals living in London, who inadvertently overhear the coordination of a overnight bank heist on surveillance equipment belonging to Driver's lousy live-in boyfriend. (He's a wannabe avant-garde artist working on an "urban noise symphony" that includes snippets of intercepted cell phone calls.)
