I Saw The Light Review

Weak

Writer-director Marc Abraham gets ambitious with this biopic about iconic country music star Hank Williams, but the film is far too choppy to provide much insight. Leaping through the decades without much context, the film never explores what made Williams such an important artist, so it's difficult to understand the impact of his tragic death at just 29. That said, Tom Hiddleston shines in the role.

Cutting around in time, the film shows Hank (Hiddleston) as a young man with a singular vision: he's determined to perform at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. His young wife Audrey (Elizabeth Olsen) and his mother Lillie (Cherry Jones) argue about who will control his career, but Hank just gets on with it, relying on help from music publisher Fred Rose (Bradley Whitford). Finally at 26 he gets his first No 1 single, and lands a spot at the Opry, becoming a fast-rising superstar. But the chronic back pain he has suffered since childhood leads him into alcohol and drug abuse, which of course begins to take a toll on his career as well as his friendships, marriage and health.

The film skips around Williams' life, moving on to the next scene before this one seems quite finished. This means that the story is never able to build up any momentum, and also that each fragmented period of time feels under-explained. And the people around Williams appear and disappear at random, so the actors never get any traction in their roles. Hiddleston does find moments of resonance, simply because he's in every scene in the film and establishes a bit of rapport with the audience. It's also astonishing that he performs the songs himself. But Abrahams's approach to storytelling never offers any insight into Williams' fame, talents or personal life.

Captain America: Civil War Review

Excellent

After the formulaic thrills of The Winter Soldier and Age of Ultron, Marvel's Avengers were in danger of getting stuck in a rut, but a smart script for this surprisingly focussed thriller kicks everything into a new direction. What's surprising is that the screenwriters have managed to incorporate a wide range of characters without the film ever feeling overcrowded. Each person has a journey to travel, so the actors get a chance to invest plenty of personality into the action.

After the events of Ultron, there's a political debate about the need to oversee the Avengers' missions. Iron Man Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) thinks a special UN council is a good idea, but Captain America Steve (Chris Evans) thinks that will limit the team's ability to help people. Then Steve's best pal Bucky (Sebastian Stan) is framed for a bombing, and Black Panther T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) is drawn into the fray. The Avengers are forced to take sides, with those supporting Bucky becoming outlaws. Tony recruits Spider-Man Peter (Tom Holland) to his team, while Steve drafts in Ant-Man Scott (Paul Rudd). And as they all face off against each other, none of them realise that this entire situation is being manipulated by a vengeful man named Zemo (Daniel Bruhl).

Watching this film requires the audience to suspend disbelief that these super-powered friends could be pushed to try to kill each other. That never quite makes sense, and indeed the script acknowledges this fact when one person goes down and everyone reacts emotionally. But the high-powered cast is so good at creating these intensely driven superheroes that it's not difficult to go with it.

Captain America: Civil War Trailer


The Avengers are suffering from an image crisis. As much good that they do and as many lives that they save, the superheroes also cause unlimited amounts of damage to cities and civilisation. The government wish to find an answer to this problem and they decide that all superheroes should be registered and held accountable for their actions. 

Tony Stark is brought in to begin talks on behalf of The Avengers, knowing how much damage he's personally done under his superhero disguise, Stark see the government's point and decides that a register wouldn't be entirely unwelcome. Captain America on the other hand has no such wishes; The Cap sees any government intervention as something beyond reasonable requirement. In the middle of all this is Cap's old friend Bucky who could be prosecuted under the new laws. As The Avengers are forced to split into two halves, it looks like there's going to be no way for the old team to form any kind of agreement. 

 As their opinions deepen and rivalries are deepens, certain members of Hydra begin to tighten their control and their plans for future domination of the world are getting stronger. The Avengers must find a way to put their differences aside in order to beat the real enemy.

I Saw The Light Trailer


I Saw The Light is the new biopic about Hank Williams. The film follows his personal life and rise to fame and his tragic death at the age of 29. Having released 30 singles in a very short amount of time Hank Williams became one of the US's favourite musicians.

Having begun work in the music industry recording tracks for a radio station, eventual turn of events and the war led Williams onto starting a solo career. Both his mother and his wife played a huge part in his musical success with his wife Audrey initially managing him which led onto Hank being signed to MGM Records.

Hank always wished to be the best father he could to his child, but constant time on the road, an addiction to pain medication, alcohol topped with his promiscuous ways lead to an unstable home life, despite the wholesome image the outside world had of him.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron - Extended Teaser Trailer


The Avengers may be feeling like they are capable of anything after saving New York City from Loki's rampage and returning the deadly Tesseract to its rightful place in Asgard, but the group have a new threat to overcome. As the group; Tony Stark (Iron Man), Steve Rogers (Captain America), Bruce Banner (Hulk), Thor, Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) and Clint Barton (Hawkeye); attempt to enjoy an usually civilised evening together, they are interrupted by Ultron - a backfired project of Stark who is dead set on destroying the human race and branding them puppets in his game. With S.H.I.EL.D. destroyed, their chances of saving the world once again are looking dangerously slim. Now beginning to question just how much power they have, they are forced to regroup for a mission that could finally see their end.

The success of the franchise reboot Godzilla earlier this year has led to Legendary Pictures greenlighting a sequel, and they have announced a release date of June 8th 2018. In July at San Diego Comic-Con Legendary also announced that the sequel would feature Godzilla's fellow giant beastie friends, Rodan (a dinosaur), Ghidorah (a dragon) and Mothra (erm, a moth)

After over a decade in arrested development, Godzilla was released in May of this year, and was a hit amongst critics and punters. Featuring Bryan Cranston alongside young actors Aaron Taylor-Wood and Elizabeth Olsen (who will both be appearing next in Marvel's Avengers 2: Age of Ultron) the film was set in present day America, Hawaii and Japan and Godzilla appeared as a secret the US government had been hiding for sixty years- a conspiracy theorist's dream, or nightmare, depending on how you look at it.

Advertised by Legendary pictures as "An epic rebirth to Toho's iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world's most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity's scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence." This upcoming movie appears to be less tongue-in-cheek than the 1998 version starring Matthew Broderick but certainly boasts a larger budget and more terrifying creature as the central focus of this action movie.

"Avengers: Age Of Ultron": New And Improved (Maybe) Scarlet Witch And Quicksilver Character Design Revealed


Elizabeth Olsen James Spader Aaron Johnson

The Scarlet Witch of the Marvel cinematic universe doesn’t look too faithful to her comic book counterpart, but fans should probably still be glad that she and brother/co-conspiritor Quicksilver are making it into the movie franchise. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver make regular appearances in the comics and it will be interesting to see how Joss Whedon and co. bring them into the Age of Ultron plot.
For now, those interested will have to settle for the concept art for the two characters, which was recently revealed in the ABC special Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe. The designs for the two characters might have some hardcore fans up in arms, but generally, they look appropriate for the Avengers movie going crowd.

Elizabeth Olsen
Elizabeth Olsen has been chosen for the role of Quicksilver.

Quicksilver’s look doesn’t seem to have undergone too many changes, but then it’s hard to make a more basic version of a blue bodycon outfit and windswept hair. So the cinematic Quicksilver will resemble a Fantastic Four team member, without any of the uniform details. Disappointingly, it looks like the design team has also done away with his trademark white lightning across the chest (as well as the white hair,) but other than that, there hasn’t been much tweaking here.

Elizabeth Olsen Engaged, But Where Is Her Career Headed?


Elizabeth Olsen Boyd Holbrook

The younger (and much taller) Olsen sister, Elizabeth Olsen, has become engaged to boyfriend Boyd Holbook. The pair have been dating for over two years now and began living together in Brooklyn just a few months ago. Holbook obviously enjoyed living with Elizabeth so much that he just knew she was the girl for him!

The news comes not at all long after Elizabeth’s big sis, Mary-Kate, announced her engagement to French banker, Olivier Sarkozy. We wonder if a double wedding could possibly be on the cards? Or would that be reserved for the twins if Ashley decides to get hitched to current beau, 47 year old director Bennett Miller. Perhaps a triple Olsen wedding? Although both Mary-Kate and Ashley's partners have quite a few years on 31 year old Boyd!  There would be quite a range of guests at the wedding!

Oldboy - Clip

When Joe finds himself trapped in a cell with no window and barely more than a bed, a TV and a bible, it's only the beginning of a nightmare that would potentially be endless. He discovers that he is wanted as the prime suspect in the brutal murder of his ex-wife who leaves behind a daughter. All he can do is work out, grieve over her death and ponder the whereabouts of his beloved little girl.

Elizabeth Olsen will play Scarlet Witch in Joss Whedon's forthcoming superhero sequel Avengers 2: Age of Ultron, according to Nick Fury himself, Samuel L Jackson. Irish actress Saoirse Ronan was originally offered the part, but turned it down, leaving executives eyeing indie-favorite Olsen.

Jackson spilt the beans while discussing his cameo on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D with the Wall Street Journal.

"I know we're shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don't know what she's doing, if she's on the inside or the outside. I haven't seen a script."

In Kill Your Darlings, Daniel Radcliffe takes a radical step from his days playing the world’s favourite wizard by portraying Allen Ginsberg in his early years at Columbia University.

The film follows Ginsberg’s dramatic time at the university, from his early relationship with Carr to the murder investigation that would then shape the lives of all the promising artists.

Allen Ginsberg is a Beat Generation writer, with no idea that his venture to New York to attend Columbia University will hold more than just a promising future career-wise. It's there that he meets Lucien Carr; a slightly unhinged but ambitious, intelligent and extremely good looking fellow student who enjoys wild partying with his wealthy friend  William Burroughs and, later, Jack Kerouac. As Allen and Lucien become closer, the latter's much older friend - a professor named David Kammerer - becomes increasingly jealous, threatening Allen who discovers that he has been following Lucien from city to city over a few years. Although Allen insists that they must find a way to prevent this incessant stalking, he is deeply shocked when David's body is discovered in the Hudson River, with Lucien held as prime suspect for stabbing him to death. Allen now faces a dilemma; to either use his skills in writing to make sure his friend is liberated, or reveal what he now believes is the truth to all.

When Joe Doucett suddenly wakes up one morning to find himself imprisoned in a cell with little more than a bed, a TV and a bible, his first thought is some sort of terrible nightmare. But things get worse when a news broadcast states that he is the prime suspect in the murder of his ex-wife and mother of his child Donna Hawthorne, and his daughter has been subsequently adopted. He spends his hours dwelling on Donna's death, working out, boxing, self-harming and talking to stray mice until one day, 20 years later, he finds himself climbing out of a trunk in a field very well-groomed and dressed smartly with a wad of cash in his jacket. He embarks on a mission to kill the man who took his liberty while falling in love with the beautiful Marie, who tries to help him re-build his life. However, he soon releases that he is less free than he thought as his captor continues to taunt him with questions of why he imprisoned him and why he let him go.

Oldboy American Remake Starring Josh Brolin – First Poster Revealed

The plot of Oldboy, which anyone who wants to see the film will already know, centres around Oh Dae-su, who is kidnapped and imprisoned on his daughters birthday. After years of confinement, he sets about finding his revenge, only to find out he’s still embroiled in a web of intrigue and lies.

Hot Tickets! US Movie Releases: Jessica Chastain Stars In Creepy Thriller 'Mama,' Arnie Makes A Comeback In 'The Last Stand,' Mark Wahlberg's 'Broken City' Is A Doozy


Jessica Chastain Benicio Del Toro Arnold Schwarzenegger Johnny Knoxville Forest Whitaker Mark Wahlberg Russell Crowe Catherine Zeta Jones Daniel Radcliffe Elizabeth Olsen Ben Foster

With Jessica Chastain nominated for an Oscar for her role in Zero Dark Thirty. Her presence in Mama, alone, should be enough to generate interest in Guillermo Del Toro’s latest supernatural thriller. Anyone expecting a Zero Dark Thirty-style action drama, though, will be sorely disappointed. And possibly a little scared.

Chastain plays the role of Annabel, a woman who welcomes her partner’s abandoned nieces into her home. They are traumatised and clearly disturbed. Annabel seems unsure whether or not she’s ready to look after them. Little does she know, however, that she’s opened the doors of her home to more than just the two young girls, who disappeared the day that their mother was murdered by their father. More of a psychological horror than a guts-n-gore kind of movie, del Toro knows exactly how to get inside the viewer’s mind and linger there, with his superb use of special effects and the kind of suspense tactics that will require the surgical removal of your fingers from the cinema seat by the time the movie’s over.

“Mama succeeds in scaring the wits out of us and leaving some lingering, deeply creepy images ...” Richard Roeper – Chicago Sun-Times

Certainly there weren’t many who were aware of the American actress as she was revealed as one of the BAFTA’s (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Rising Star list for 2013; that’s sort of the point, really, these aren’t stars yet. They are stars-to-be, nevertheless we'd better do some explaining for you.

So who exactly is she? Well the surname might give it away a bit. No, she’s not related to former Manchester United winger Jesper Olsen (as I’m sure you were all guessing), she’s the younger sister of entrepreneurial millionaires Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen! Bearing an uncanny likeness to the pair, Olsen has also – like them – initially made her way in the acting world. She made a big impact in the 2011 film Martha Macy May Marlene, which saw her play a young woman suffering from delusions and paranoia after returning to her family from a cult in the Catskill Mountains. The performance saw her take a win at the Phoenix Film Critics Society Awards for Best Actress, among others, as well as picking up a host of nominations elsewhere including at the Independent Spirit Awards for Best Lead.

A quieter year followed last year, but Olsen has four roles set to be released this year, with beat poet drama Kill Your Darlings, the Demi Moore-starring Very Good Girls, Therese Raquin  - based on an 1867 novel - and the Spike Lee-directed Old Boy. With such a diverse range of films, it’s clear that Olsen’s talent is burgeoning, and we think that the BAFTA might well be right to have named her as one to watch.

Red Lights Review


Good
Spanish filmmaker Cortes clearly thinks of himself as a Christopher Nolan-style filmmaker, as this thriller has heavy echoes of Inception and especially The Prestige. But the film drifts into self-parody just when it needs to take an intelligent twist.

Tom (Murphy) is a physicist who works with psychologist Margaret (Weaver) to expose fake psychics. They don't believe that the supernatural exists, much to the annoyance of psychic studies proferssor Paul (Jones). Assisted by students Sally and Ben (Olsen and Roberts), Tom and Margaret debunk noted mentalist Palladino (Sbaraglia) by looking for "red lights", anything that seems suspicious. But when Margaret's old nemesis Simon (De Niro) makes a comeback, she backs down from going after the famed blind showman. And Tom's secret investigation takes some bizarre turns.

Red Lights Trailer


Two sceptics, psychologist Dr. Margaret Matheson and physicist Dr. Tom Buckley, are partners in investigating the paranormal. Having exposed a mass of so-called psychics, mediums, faith healers and ghost hunters throughout their career by discovering 'red lights' (clues to how the deceptions are engineered), Buckley wants to turn his attention to the most celebrated psychic of all time, the blind and mystifying Simon Silver, when he comes out of his 30 year retirement. Matheson is quick to dismiss Buckley's case telling him that he doesn't need to be investigated as he was already investigated prior to his retirement. However, the real reason is that she suspects he was behind the death of his most notable critic all those years ago. Buckley ignores Matheson's warnings and enlists his talented student Sally to help him with his investigations, but soon things start to take a sinister turn as Silver becomes increasingly angered at the people questioning his mysterious powers.

Martha Marcy May Marlene Review


Excellent
With a disturbing tone and skilful filmmaking, this insinuating drama completely unsettles us as it delves into the mental life of its central character. And it has a lot to say about how relationships affect us.

After going missing for two years, Martha (Olsen) phones her sister Lucy (Paulson) for help, then goes to stay with Lucy and her husband Ted (Dancy) in a lakeside house. Martha says she's been living with a boyfriend, but actually she was in a cult-like commune with her friend Zoe (Krause), working a farm under the leadership of the charismatic Patrick (Hawkes). Renamed Marcy May, she was coaxed into sharing everything there, including her body, and now she's not quite sure what's real and what isn't. And also whether she actually got away.
