Review: Filth

PLOT: Bruce Robertson ( James McAvoy ) is a detective in Scotland investigating a racially motivated murder while attempting to gain an important promotion at work. However, Bruce leads a double life. While he pretends to be an upstanding officer, he's actually a raging drug addict who uses his powers as a cop to score drugs, gain sexual favours, and generally wreak diabolical...

The UnPopular Opinion: Jack the Giant Slayer

THE UNPOPULAR OPINION is an ongoing column featuring different takes on films that either the writer HATED, but that the majority of film fans LOVED, or that the writer LOVED, but that most others LOATHED. We're hoping this column will promote constructive and geek fueled discussion. Enjoy! ****SOME SPOILERS ENSUE**** Bryan Singer is a very talented director. From...

Jude Law on a third Sherlock Holmes film: "We want it to be better than the other two"

SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS may not have been as well received by critics as the first movie, but it still made a ton of money: $186 million domestically and another $358 million in foreign markets. When a film does that well in theaters (especially a sequel) another movie is typically announced soon after, but there hasn't been any news on a third film and Robert Downey...

Insane new red-band trailer and poster for Filth, starring James McAvoy, Imogen Poots, and Jim Broadbent

The resounding thought I'm left with after seeing each new trailer for FILTH is this: I need to see this movie. I don't know if it's just the sick, depraved lunacy or the outlandish, crazy performances that sell me, but ultimately it just looks like a lot of bloody good fun. James McAvoy as a corrupt cop struggling with addiction (of many kinds, it seems) looks to be...

New red-band international trailer for James McAvoy's Filth is the perfect Friday treat!

What a perfect trailer to debut on a Friday! For those of you stuck behind cubicles or whatever daily grind you're in, this is like the perfect sounding horn to the freedom release of the weekend. I'd caution against some of the more extreme activities in this new red-band trailer for FILTH, however I think it captures a good spirit of low-down, dirty fun. James McAvoy stars...

James McAvoy is a "bad lieutenant" in this NSFW trailer and poster for Filth, based on the novel by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh

James McAvoy has never had much trouble playing it over the top and it looks like he's settled into the level of intensity just fine for FILTH, an adaptation of TRAINSPOTTING author Irvine Welsh's novel . It boils down to a mix between Danny Boyle 's TRAINSPOTTING and Abel Ferrara 's BAD LIEUTENANT (and maybe a little bit of BAD LIEUTENANT: PORT OF CALL), which could make for a...

Review: Jack the Giant Slayer

When his kingdom's princess, Isabelle ( Eleanor Tomlinson ) ends up in the kingdom of the giants, the amorous Jack volunteers to rescue her. Leading the King's Guard- headed by Elmont...

New rockin' trailer for Bryan Singer's Jack The Giant Slayer arrives

A new trailer for Bryan Singer's JACK THE GIANT SLAYER has arrived and it's probably the best one yet.  For me, that's not saying much, as I haven't really been impressed until now.  Taking a more "rockin" approach in it's music and a more action-y approach to its editing, this new trailer actually makes it seem like the film will deliver on the adventure it keeps promising.  I like Bryan...

UPDATED with trailer tease; First clip from Bryan Singer's Jack The Giant Slayer has everyone on the run

UPDATE: WB snuck in a lovely teaser for the new trailer, which we have all come to know and love so much. Check it out below the clip. Director Bryan Singer 's oft-delayed JACK THE GIANT SLAYER is finally making its way to theaters and today we have the first clip from the film, which shows how a lovely stroll can turn into a race for your life when giants pop out of the trees and chase...

These two banners for Jack the Giant Slayer warn that something giant is coming

JACK THE GIANT SLAYER is coming. This much we now know.  Will people come to theatres in response to it and watch the thing? This much we don't know, and the prognosis is so murky that I can't for the life of me predict how things will go. One thing's for certain - if Jack fails in his quest, at least we can rely on Stanley Tucci 's strange stinkeye/sassy-wink combo facial maneuver...

These new posters for Jack the Giant Killer bring four giants and a traditional rhyme to the fore

We've already had a look at one of the titular giants from JACK THE GIANT SLAYER via an international poster released last week, and today brings close-ups of four more giants for your (dubious) viewing pleasure.  One assumes that the posters are meant to be viewed all together, but seeing as how theaters rarely have the space to do so I'm not sure just how well any of these...

New international poster for Jack the Giant Slayer gives us a clear look at one of the titular giants

If your fantasy desires were left unsatisfied by THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY , or if your viewing conversely left you itching for more and you're desperately searching for something to tide you over until its sequel, then don't forget that JACK THE GIANT SLAYER is on its merry way to cinemas this spring. Because it's been made very easy thus far to forget about this movie. ...
