August 1, 2010 Upcoming Films

Get Low.

Sony Pictures Classics. Rated PG-13. Opens July 30 in New York and Los Angeles, then expands nationwide in August.

Enemies of the People - the Cambodian Holocaust. The Enemies of the People are the words the Khmer Rouge used to describe the two million Cambodians who they butchered in the name of patriotism. This film searches for an explanation for this genocide and in its quest some things are skimmed over, but if it sends you scuttling to the internet to discover more, as it did me, then the filmmakers’ job is done.   It’s a remarkable piece of work.

Flipped (limited release. Nationwide release on August 27) A coming of age romantic comedy starring Madeline Carroll and Callan McAuliffe. Theree's triumph and disaster, family drama and first love. This film is rated PG for language and some thematic material. Warner Bros. Pictures and Castle Rock Entertainment.

Micmacs. A man and his friends come up with an intricate and original plan to destroy two big weapons manufacturers. Opens in Tucson, AZ. Sony Pictures. PG rated. 104 minutes.

The Other Guys. Set in New York City, The Other Guys follows Detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell), a forensic accountant who's more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets. Stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, Ray Stevenson, Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson. Sony Pictures.

Step Up 3D. A close-knit group of street dancers team up with NYU freshman Moose and find themselves pitted against the world’s best hip hop dancers. Touchstone, Sony Pictures Entertainment. Rated PG-13. 107 minutes. Released in US and UK.

Friday, August 13, 2010 Upcoming Summer Films

Animal Kingdom. The Kingdom is the Melbourne underworld and the Animals are the armed robbers who inhabit the terrain.  It’s set at a time when Melbourne criminals are becoming TV Reality stars and the Armed Robbery Police Force are shooting suspects on sight.  It’s down and dirty and we only hear it from the bad guys’ side which is the right place to be because when the hunter becomes the hunted we want to get as close as we can.    

Eat, Pray, Love. Sony Pictures.

Scott Pilgrim v The World was first a graphic novel series, then a video game, and now it’s a film.  So with the latter being enriched by its predecessors, a most original work could have been created. Universal Pictures. Rated TBD.

The Expendables. A team of mercenaries head to South America on a mission to overthrow a dictator. Stars Bruce Willis and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in a rare movie cameo. Lionsgate. Rated TBD.

Friday, August 20, 2010 Release

The Switch. An unmarried 40-year-old woman turns to a turkey baster in order to become pregnant. Seven years later, she reunites with her best friend, who has been living with a secret: he replaced her preferred sperm sample with his own. Miramax. Rated PG-13.

Nanny McPhee Returns. Nanny McPhee arrives to help a harried young mother who is trying to run the family farm while her husband is away at war, though she uses her magic to teach the woman's children and their two spoiled cousins five new lessons. In Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, Oscar®-winning actress and screenwriter Emma Thompson returns to the role of the magical nanny who appears when she’s needed the most and wanted the least in the next chapter of the hilarious and heartwarming fable that has enchanted children around the world. In the latest installment, Nanny McPhee appears at the door of a harried young mother, Mrs. Isabel Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal), who is trying to run the family farm while her husband is away at war.  But once she’s arrived, Nanny McPhee discovers that Mrs. Green’s children are fighting a war of their own against two spoiled city cousins who have just moved in and refuse to leave. Relying on everything from a flying motorcycle and a statue that comes to life to a tree-climbing piglet and a baby elephant who turns up in the oddest places, Nanny McPhee uses her magic to teach her mischievous charges five new lessons. Universal Pictures. Rated PG. Opens in South Korea 11 August 2010, Canada 20 August 2010, Brazil 17 September 2010.

Pirahna 3D. If an amateur writer was going to write a script about a killer fish, these are the things he would not do :-  Set the story in high season in a sleepy town resort; have an opening shot of a lone person in water being attacked from below; make the Chief of Police one of the main characters;  include  the Chief of Police’s children; let the Chief of Police anywhere near a boat; have the Chief of Police threaten to close the waters; let Richard Dreyfuss do a cameo.

Priest. Sony Pictures.

The Lottery Ticket, a comedy from Warner Bros. Pictures. Kevin Carson (Bow Wow) a young man who is living in the projects until he wins a $370 million lottery. But with the good news, is also the bad news. This film is rated PG-13 for sexual content, language including a drug reference, some violence and brief underage drinking. Warner Bros. and Alcon Pictures.

The Tillman Story. Whenever there’s a public inquiry or hearing, it seems governments and corporations always come out looking even worse than we already thought they were. In The Tillman Story the military are included in the line-up and, by the end of this sorry tale, it becomes clear that the martial moral compass has become decidedly out of synch.

Wild Grass. A wallet lost and found opens the door to romantic adventure for Georges and Marguerite. Sony Pictures. Opens in Tucson, Arizona. PG-13. 100 minutes.

August 25: Louis. This film is about Louis Armstrong, the first jazz soloist to garner international acclaim and one of the greatest musical influences of the 20th Century. His road to stardom is a classic underdog story and, of course, fodder for a fascinating biopic.

Friday, August 27, 2010 Upcoming Summer Films

Mesrine. Jacques Mesrine was a French international gangster who was gunned down in 1979 by a police unit set-up solely to eliminate him, thus guaranteeing he would become one of history’s criminal icons and ensuring his robberies, murders and prison breaks would one day become legendary. And as French exports go, this renegade is definitely up there with the Camembert, Pinot Noir and fries.  US Release date 3rd September of Mesrine: Public Enemy No. 1 (Part 2). UK DVD release date 25th January, 2010. Based on the book ‘L’instinct de Mort’ by Jacques Mesrine.\

The Last Exorcism. A troubled evangelical minister agrees to let his last exorcism be filmed by a documentary crew. Lionsgate.

Flipped nationwide release. When second-graders Bryce and Juli first meet, Juli knows it's love. But, Bryce isn't so sure. coming-of-age romantic comedy "Flipped," from director Rob Reiner, takes Bryce and Juli from Grade School to Junior High, through triumph and disaster, family drama and first love, as they make the discoveries that will define who they are -- and who they are to each other. Warner Bros. Pictures.

Going the Distance. A romantic comedy from Warner Bros. Films. Stars Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. A long distance relationship texting style. Rated R for sexual content including dialogue, language throughout, some drug use and brief nudity.

August 31: City Island. The concept behind City Island is that everyone has a secret but, unfortunately, when these secrets are revealed, they’re something we’ve seen a million times before. And as if this isn’t banal enough, a very silly sub-plot is introduced that is clearly there just to make sure us idiots get it.  Insulting your audience’s intelligence is never a good idea and, as the producers now know, not the route to Box Office glory.
