Jamesy Boy Review


Good

While this true prison drama is sharply shot and acted, there isn't a moment we haven't seen before. Instead of drawing out the uniqueness of the real events, the filmmakers rely on the usual stereotypes, which leaves this feeling more like a run-of-the-mill TV movie. But there's a very strong narrative buried in here, and some terrific performances underneath the preachy melodrama.

The title character is 14-year-old James (Lofranco), who has been in trouble with the law since he was 6. Abused as a child, he has a long and violent criminal record, and since he's been labelled as a "bad" kid he knows he'll never get a chance to achieve anything at his new high school. His mother (Parker) tries her best, but he still ends up hanging out with druggy Crystal (Salazar) and her gangster friend Roc (Trotter). For James, a life of crime seems more useful than going to school, so he begins working for Roc, only barely managing to avoid arrest and death. Then he meets local shop girl Sarah (Farmiga), who gives him a reason to rethink his life.

This plot is intercut with a parallel story of James in prison three years later, so we know what's going to happen. Of course, the thing that put him behind bars is the oldest cliche in the book: he does one last job for Roc before going straight for Sarah. This intercut half of the film is even darker, as James moves between warring with a rival inmate (Gomez) to clashing with the hard-headed warden (Woods) to resisting the advice of a Shawshank-like guru (Rhames) to trying to help a doomed newbie (Rosenfield).

Jobs Trailer


Steve Jobs founded Apple Inc. with his techie pal Steve Wozniak after leaving Reed College in Portland, Oregon at which he managed only a 6 month stint. He became a technician for Wozniak and fell instantly in love with the world of computers and his own ideas in revolutionising computers for the public. However, he proved to be a difficult person to work for when Apple became a major business, leading to him leaving the company for some time while he started over on another project. But through all the hardship and controversial leadership skills, Jobs is remembered as a pioneer who built an empire with the brand that everybody loved before passing away from pancreatic cancer in 2011 after an eight year health struggle.

Channing Tatum On President-Saving Duty In White House Down (Trailer)


Channing Tatum Jamie Foxx Maggie Gyllenhaal James Woods

White House Down stars Channing Tatum as John Cale, a former USCP officer who is turned down for a job in the Secret Service but soon finds himself in a situation where he is unexpectedly forced to prove his mettle. As Cale takes his daughter Emily on a tour of the White House, in order to give her a day she’ll always remember, the government comes under attack from terrorists and the White House building is at the centre of the attacks. 

Cale unwittingly finds himself responsible for ensuring the safety of the US President (President James Sawyer, played by Jamie Foxx), as well as making sure that his daughter comes to no harm as the building comes under attack from a series of bombings. His true abilities are soon to be recognised, that’s for sure. The trailer sees a series of news footage clips, detailing the attacks, inter-spliced with action shots of Channing trying to navigate his way around the building, protecting the President as he goes.

White House Down Trailer


When USCP officer John Cale is turned down as he applies for a highly coveted role in the Secret Service, he is devastated but cannot find it in himself to disappoint his young daughter Emily who idolises him and his job. In a bid to give Emily an experience to remember, he takes her on a tour of the White House, but what started out as the most normal of days (if a little extra exciting for Emily) quickly becomes a situation of life and death when terrorist groups launch a series of bombs that hit the White House causing a shocking scene of devastation. John now finds himself with the responsibility of keeping his daughter safe from harm as well as protecting President James Sawyer along with the rest of his country. He may have lost out on becoming an official protector of the President, but he now faces a true test of his abilities that is unlikely to go unnoticed.

Jobs - Clip


Steve Jobs is the late founder of Apple Inc. and who was a technological pioneer in terms of computers and general electronics. 'jOBS' is the brand new biopic on this extraordinary and charismatic man who sadly passed away from pancreatic cancer on October 5th 2011 aged just 56. This movie chronicles his career from 1971 to 2011 beginning with his dropping out of the expensive Reed College in Portland, Oregon after only 6 months before going on to his first job as a technician which later saw him work with business partner Steve Wozniak for the first time; a partner who became a major player in the creation of Apple Computers.

This long awaited biopic is soon to be released following a lengthy wait since production began in June 2012; just eight months after Jobs' death. It has been directed by Joshua Michael Stern ('Swing Vote', 'Neverwas'), produced by Mark Hulme and written by Matt Whiteley in his screenwriting debut. Much of the filming even took place at Jobs' actual childhood home in Los Altos, California. The independent flick was chosen to close the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in January 2013 and is set for theatrical release in the US on April 19th 2013.

Director: Joshua Michael Stern

Sundance Premiere For Steve Jobs Movie: Will Ashton Kutcher Be "Inspiring"?


Ashton Kutcher James Woods Matthew Modine Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher stars in the lead role of the new Steve Jobs biopic and it has been reported the movie will get its premiere on the closing night of the Sundance Festival, before getting a wider cinema release. Steve Jobs is the man who co-founded Apple Inc. and became one of the most revered entrepeneurs in the modern world.

The movie will follow Steve Jobs’ life story, from college dropout, to globally successful businessman. Kutcher plays Jobs, whilst Dermot Mulrone takes the role of Mike Markkula, an investor and the second CEO of Apple. James Woods and Matthew Modine also star in the movie. Tom Ortenberg, the CEO of Open Road, told Hollywood Reporter “jOBS is certain to resonate with audiences, and we are thrilled to partner with Five Star Feature Films to bring this film to theaters. A spokesperson for Five Star added “We set out to find the perfect partners to present jOBS to audiences worldwide, and we feel we have found one with Open Road. They were as impressed as we were with Ashton Kutcher's inspiring and unforgettable performance as Steve Jobs and are excited to distribute the picture in the US.”

Given that Kutcher is better known for more lightweight entertainment such as the sitcom Two and a Half Men and – lest we should forget – the movie Dude Where’s My Car, he seemed to many to be an unlikely choice to play the role of the respected Steve Jobs. The critics, of course, will have their say very soon. The Sundance Festival 2013 takes place between January 17 – 27 in Park City, Utah.

Straw Dogs Review


Very Good
This remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1971 British thriller is deeply unpleasant but very well-made. It's also bravely packed with all kinds of mixed messages that force us to think about some extremely difficult themes.

Hollywood screenwriter David (Marsden) moves to the backwater Mississippi home of his actress wife Amy (Bosworth), who is immediately sucked back into local life. This includes her former flame Charlie (Skarsgard), who is now a contractor working on David and Amy's barn with his chucklehead hunting buddies (Coiro, Powell and Lush). But soon, the tension between Charlie and Amy erupts into sexual violence, as David is taunted about his manhood. And a simple-minded guy (Purcell) turns out to be the catalyst for an eruption of violence.
