Blade Runner 2049 - Announcement Trailer


The official announcement trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049' is finally here and while we still know little about the plot, we do get a glimpse of Ryan Gosling in his leading role as Officer K. We see him approaching the wreckage of what looks like a blimp and then an empty building in which he comes across a gun-wielding Harrison Ford who returns as Rick Deckard. The movie is based 30 years after events in the first movie, the LAPD's Officer K is the new blade runner in town, but his job gets a lot more complicated when he uncovers the truth behind the replicants' existence and sets out to find the long lost Deckard.

BBC2's "Line Of Duty" Returns To Disappointing Ratings, Loses Out To Comfy And Familiar "Midsummer Murders"


Lennie James Martin Compston Vicky McClure

When the BBC crime drama Line of Duty debuted two years ago, it was the biggest new drama the channel had had in a while. Not only did last night’s series 2 premiere fail to top that success, it didn’t even come close to matching it, despite critical success. So, what happened between then and now? Let’s talk ratings. The first series of the Jed Mercurio drama about police corruption had an overnight average of 3.2 million for its first run, ending with 3.5 million. Last night’s premiere didn’t even manage 2 million. Bearing in mind that the first episode of each season usually sees a notable spike in ratings, Line of Duty’s viewing numbers might drop even lower as this season progresses. Despite the guest appearance of Keeley Hawes in the first episode, Line of Duty only made it to 1.8 million viewers, according to The Guardian.

Line of Duty Still
The crime drama was a bit too heavy for the Thursday night crowd.

Meanwhile, ITV’s staple Midsummer Murders had a considerably better night. On its 100 episode anniversary, Midsummer registered 5.8 million viewers or 24,6% of those tuning in to the 8pm-10pm slot. The anniversary episode was set partly in Copenhagen, with Danish stars Ann Eleonora Jorgensen from the The Killing and Borgen's Birgitte Hjort Sorensen taking part in the centenary episode crime-solving shenanigans.

Lockout Trailer


In the near future the world most secure prison MS1 houses the most dangerous prisoners on Earth, floating precariously above the atmosphere offering no chance of escape for the convicts. That is until one convict in particular makes things increasingly inconvenient for those below him on Earth as he manages to unlock the cells of each prisoner, with an ensuing mass riot making things even more uncomfortable for authoritarians. What's worse is that the President's daughter, Emilie Warnock, just so happens to be on board the galactic detention centre. A rescue operation must be formed and ex-agent Snow takes on the lone mission to ensure her safe return as well as restore order in the prison.

The Next Three Days Review


Excellent
This faithful remake of Fred Cavaye's 2008 dramatic thriller Anything for Her (Pour Elle) is a deeply involving film that pulls us into its story and forces us to ask heavy moral questions. Although anyone who saw the original may wonder why they bothered to remake it.

John (Crowe) is a university literature professor who is struggling to cope with the fact that his wife Lara (Banks) has been imprisoned for murder.

Convinced of her innocence, he launches three years of appeals, all of which fail. Now at the end of his tether, he begins to hatch an unthinkable plan to reunite her with him and their 6-year-old son (Simpkins). After consulting an expert (Neeson), the question remains whether a mild-mannered schoolteacher can stage a daring prison break. And two cops (Hinds and Beghe) are closing in on him.

Jericho: Season One Review


Excellent
Jericho certainly didn't go wanting for ambition. Episode one drops nuclear bombs on U.S. soil, stranding the members of the Kansas town of Jericho in darkness and confusion, fearing for nuclear winter and oblivious to what's just happened. Over the next 21 episodes -- some of which are exceptionally taut -- we'll find out, for the most part.

The early episodes pan out exactly like you'd expect: What would happen if a bomb obliterated a nearby town, cutting off communications and sending a radioactive raincloud your way? Residents dust out the bomb shelters, prepare for the worst, and deal with human nature: Looting, man vs. man, and the question of whether those who are away will ever return.

Among Giants Review


Bad
I'm not going to try and pretend I know what director Sam Miller was going for with this movie, a perversely asinine look at an off-the-books hiring of Pete Postlethwaite and crew to paint the power line towers in a rural section of England. Featuring scenes like Postlethwaite and Rachel Griffiths running around naked under the dripping water inside a silo are only one of the things that make Among Giants not only a silly attempt at filmmaking but also an utter bore.

Lucky Break Review


Good
Prison flick meets musical comedy in this oddball conflagration of genres, a British feel-good flick that just so happens to be the follow-up film director Peter Cattaneo made after The Full Monty. Four years went by, Cattaneo's name became all but forgotten, and films like this became Cattaneo's legacy. (Four years after Lucky Break, Cattaneo is finally shooting his next film.) The lovely Olivia Williams shoulders a lot of love here as the object of one prisoner's sights -- at least when he isn't doing double duty as a showman in the warden's play and planning his big escape. Lively enough to keep you paying attention through to the end, even if the whole affair is a bit absurdly silly.

Snatch Review


Excellent
Madonna's new husband, Guy Ritchie, couldn't have timed his recent marriage any better. Intentional or not, it came a mere week before the opening of his new film Snatch, the follow-up to his Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. With Madonna as a willing shill, you couldn't ask for better publicity.

Turns out you didn't need it, Guy. Snatch is a film that stands perfectly on its own merits while it shoots bullet holes in everything in sight.

Continue reading: Snatch Review

Sahara Review


OK
If "Sahara" weren't quite so dumb, it might have been a lot offun.

A tongue-in-cheek action-adventure movie loosely basedon Clive Cussler's best-selling novel, this wild ride stars Matthew McConaugheyas maritime treasure-hunter Dirk Pitt, who follows rumors about a missingCivil War ironclad halfway around the world to the North African desert.

But on his way he becomes sidetracked by a higher senseof purpose when a willful, beautiful World Health Organization doctor (PenelopeCruz) enlists his help to sneak into a war-torn country, against orders,to track the industrial-waste source of an illness spreading through localvillages.

The picture's often over-the-top action sequences havean excess of boys-with-toys spirit. Especially fun are a guns-a-blazin'chase between a speedboat and paramilitary gunboat down a picturesque desertriver, and a scene in which McConaughey and his requisite wisecrackingcool-dork sidekick Steve Zahn (who has practically cornered the marketon such roles) fashion decades-old biplane wreckage into a land-sailingcatamaran after escaping from bad guys in a remote bank of sand dunes.

Lucky Break Review


OK

Do you remember that scene at the end of "The Sound of Music" in which the family Von Trapp sneaks out of Austria one at a time during a singing performance? So do screenwriter Ronan Bennett and director Peter Cattaneo ("The Full Monty"), who borrowed the idea for their far-fetched but passably entertaining British prison escape comedy "Lucky Break."

As a matter of fact, in a stroke of intentional irony Cattaneo cast Christopher Plummer -- Capt. Von Trapp himself -- as the prison's warden, whose dream of producing his own musical becomes the catalyst for a group of ambitious jailbirds to make getaway plans.

Lead by charmingly surly, hound dog-featured James Nesbit ("Waking Ned Devine"), the convicts (including comical English actors Timothy Spall, Bill Nighy and Lennie James) rehearse the warden's Gilbert and Sullivan-styled operetta about Admiral Horatio Nelson in the prison's disused old chapel while working out a way to employ stage props to go "over the wall."

Continue reading: Lucky Break Review

Snatch Review


Good

"I was a happy boxing promoter until about a week ago, and then -- what do I know about diamonds?"

What a great opening line for a plan-gone-awry crime caper comedy.

The picture is "Snatch," a fast-paced, multi-track corker with a nebulous English sense of humor, and the line is spoken by Turkish (Jason Statham), a small-time London tough who sees an opportunity to be something more but never imagines the trouble it will get him into.
