TV Review: ‘Hanna’

  • Variety
TV Review: ‘Hanna’
The 2011 film “Hanna” was a delicious surprise. Directed by prestige moviemaker Joe Wright, “Hanna” played like an artist’s frantic attempt to cram in all the wild impulses he wasn’t allowed elsewhere, while retaining a certain fundamental elegance. Saoirse Ronan played a teen trained from childhood to be a killing machine for reasons that never quite become clear. Engaged in cat-and-mouse warfare with Cate Blanchett’s compulsive CIA officer, Ronan’s Hanna sprinted through dazzlingly constructed frames as a propulsive techno score (composed by the Chemical Brothers) blared — and the movie never lost its balance or its control.

That filmic achievement, the ability to remain upright in the midst of mania, is what makes Amazon’s new series adaptation of “Hanna” so disappointing. The new show lacks the glimmering creativity of its source material, and, perversely enough, it manages to feel overstuffed despite its relative lack of inventive flourishes.

Rami Malek belongs to a small but special musical biopic Oscar club

Rami Malek belongs to a small but special musical biopic Oscar club
The way Rami Malek got under Freddie Mercury’s skin and brought him to life again in “Bohemian Rhapsody” was no small miracle. It is similar to how Gary Busey became a star when he uncannily channeled the‘50s rock icon in 1978’s “The Buddy Holly Story.” Or when Joaquin Phoenix was able to capture Johnny Cash’s charisma and his tumultuous dark side in 2005’s “Walk the Line.”

But neither Busey nor Phoenix won in their years. In fact, besides Malek, only five lead actors have been given an Oscar for playing real-life music makers – although it interesting that Mahershala Ali earned a corresponding supporting statuette as concert pianist Don Shirley in “Green Book” this year as well.

Who are these fellows and what traits might their roles have in common?

First was James Cagney as George M. Cohan in 1942’s “Yankee Doodle Dandy.” Cagney, best known for his gangster roles,

Happy 50th to Naomi Watts!

by Nathaniel R

the actress at Venice a month ago

Happy 50th birthday to Naomi Watts, born on this day in England. Many of us think of her as an Australian actress since that's where she first emerged but she didn't move there until she was 14. The first two movies I personally saw her in were Flirting (1991) and Tank Girl (1995). Flirting really ought to be enshrined and preserved for eternity since it gave us early looks at four enduring careers. Naomi has a small role but the three principal players are Nicole Kidman, Noah Taylor, and Thandie Newton

Naomi is so young in this clip of the girls "arriving" to a cross-school dance, that she's almost unrecognizable. She's the one in the pink with her hair up. But it's Nicole and Thandie that the cameras follow...

Movie Review – Skyscraper (2018)

Skyscraper, 2018.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Noah Taylor, Hannah Quinlivan, Roland Møller, McKenna Roberts and Noah Cottrell.

Synopsis:

A father goes to great lengths to save his family from a burning skyscraper.

The plot for Skyscraper is unbelievably stupid and the various death-defying set pieces even more so, nevertheless it’s great mindless fun. In his latest action role Dwayne Johnson plays Will Sawyer, a former Marine and FBI Agent who is now a security assessor, following a mission gone wrong and a life changing injury some ten years earlier. He has been assigned to assess The Pearl, a gigantic building in Hong Kong, for any security issues. After a team hijack the building and set it on fire with his family still inside, Will must defy the odds and save the day.

Dwayne Johnson’s Skyscraper crumbles at the box office as Hotel Transylvania 3 takes off

In a rare box office misfire for Dwayne Johnson, his latest film Skyscraper has underperformed, with the film coming in under projects with $25.4 million in North America, placing it third in the weekend chart behind Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation ($44.2 million) and Ant-Man and the Wasp ($28.8 million).

Skyscraper marks Johnson’s lowest domestic opening weekend since Baywatch, which debuted with $18.5 million last year. However, that was an R-rated comedy with a budget of $69 million, compared to a $125 million budgeted disaster blockbuster.

Skyscraper didn’t fare much better internationally either, adding $40.4 million for a worldwide opening of just $65.9 million. Hotel Transylvania 3 meanwhile kicked off with $100.2 million worldwide, while Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp pushed its global haul to $283.7 million after two weekends.

Global icon Dwayne Johnson leads the cast of Legendary’s Skyscraper as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers.

Film Review: Excess & Dwayne Johnson is How ‘Skyscraper’ Works

Chicago – The Dwayne Johnson formula is what it is, as it seems for about three to five films a year. A disaster strikes, but the Johnson character has loved ones among the victims, and in his background there is enough expertise to rescue them. “Skyscraper” is the latest.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

“Skyscraper” had to be the easiest “elevator pitch” in film history… “Die Hard” meets “The Towering Inferno.” In this one, Johnson is ex-FBI and a security expert for the tallest building in the world… in Hong Kong. So when a fire gets lit in that high tower, and Johnson’s family is trapped inside, well, the rest of it becomes the formula. It still works, in a “B” movie kind of way, because even though the formula is in place, it’s always weirdly fascinating as to how it’s going to work, and often it is Dwayne Johnson – and

Movie Review – Skyscraper (2018)

Skyscraper, 2018.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber.

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Pablo Schreiber, Noah Taylor, Roland Møller, Hannah Quinlivan, McKenna Roberts, Kevin Rankin, Byron Mann, Matt O’Leary, and Chin Han

Synopsis:

A father goes to great lengths to save his family from a burning skyscraper.

“This is stupid” – Dwayne Johnson’s hostage rescuer turned one-legged towering building inspector mutters to himself as he is about to rappel down the titular skyscraper. Yes folks, writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s Skyscraper is self-aware; it’s loud, bursting with CGI, chaotic, dumb fun that seems to know exactly what to do with The Rock.

Skyscraper is the 80s/90s throwback action vehicle I, and assumedly many others, always felt the worldwide icon was suited for, yet for whatever reason never fully happened until now. He’s done everything from a string of Disney children flicks to more laid-back comedic affairs

‘Skyscraper’ Spoiler-Free Review: Exactly The Film It Needs To Be

Whether it was intentional or not, it’s kind of a shame that the new Dwayne Johnson vehicle ‘Skyscraper’ is being released on the eve of ‘Die Hard’s 30th anniversary. It’s a film that will inevitably draw comparisons to ‘Die Hard’, but on the eve of film’s 30th birthday, it’s nearly impossible to ignore the comparisons. The curcular nature of the Hollywood machine is an interesting thing. Since it’s release, ‘Die Hard’ has become a trope in itself, often being used as a way to pitch a film quickly “’Die Hard’ on a Plane”. In the case of ‘Skyscraper,’ it’s a film that is literally ‘Die Hard’, just doubling down with a much taller, futuristic building that is also on fire. Ultimately though, the comparisons stop with ‘Skyscraper’s premise (it actually has more in common with ‘Towering Inferno’)–that is unless you’re

Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Pablo Schreiber, Noah Taylor, McKenna Roberts, Kevin Rankin, Roland Moller, Byron Mann, Matt O’Leary, Hannah Quinlivan, Beatrice King, Tzi Ma, Chin Han, Paul McGillion, Kathy Wu | Written and Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber

Dwayne Johnson reteams once again with director Rawson Marshall Thurber for Skyscraper, after the critically mixed and modest box office reception Central Intelligence two years previously.

Global disaster flick Skyscraper sees Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson star as former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford, who now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he’s been framed for it. A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building… above the fire line.

Neve Campbell Will Be Your New Favorite Action Hero After Watching This Skyscraper Clip
