Movie Review: MORGAN

MORGAN | © 2016 Twentieth Century Fox

Rating: R Stars: Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rose Leslie, Michael Yare, Toby Jones, Chris Sullivan, Boyd Holbrook, Vinette Robinson, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Giamatti, Brian Cox Writer: Seth W. Owen Director: Luke Scott Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: September 2, 2016 MORGAN is a science-fiction/horror story that plays hardball with our sympathies. Even as we’re shown the danger posed by Morgan (Anya Taylor-Joy) in the opening moments, we instinctively side with her and those who want to protect her. This instinct is challenged throughout, as – this isn’t giving much away – the first scene won’t be […]Read On »

Although he plays all sorts of roles, Brian Cox is known for portraying men who are bold, in charge and often devious. In addition to being the original Hannibal Lektor (as it was then spelled) in MANHUNTER, a few of the Scotland-born actor’s more memorable film roles include Robert McKee in ADAPTATION, Col. William Stryker in X-MEN 2, King Agamemnon in TROY and Russian spy Ivan Simonov in the RED films, plus and BBC executive Sydney Newman in the telefilm AN ADVENTURE IN SPACE AND TIME (about the early years of DOCTOR WHO). Now Cox is adding another character to […]Read On »

THE GAME creator Toby Whithouse on new espionage miniseries – Exclusive Interview

THE GAME | ©2014 BBC America

In BBC America’s new miniseries THE GAME, premiering Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 10 PM, it’s the early 1970s. England and the Soviet Union are spying on one another and it’s not clear to us, or perhaps even to him, where the loyalties of MI-6 agent Joe Lambe (Tom Hughes) truly are. Joe’s love has been murdered by the KGB, so he has vengeance on his mind, while some strange office politics play out at headquarters, where Daddy (Brian Cox) rules the department. Then there’s the possibility of nuclear war, due to a particular secret that the KGB is keen to […]Read On »

Movie Review: ANNA

Rating: R Stars: Mark Strong, Taissa Farmiga, Brian Cox, Saskia Reeves, Richard Dillane, Indira Varma Writer: Guy Holmes, story by Guy Holmes & Martha Holmes Director: Jorge Dorado Distributor: Vertical Entertainment Release Date: June 6, 2014 Remote viewing, discussed in newsreel footage early in ANNA, is a real technique developed by the military. There’s some dispute as to how much, or whether, it actually works, but there is documentation that the armed forces used psychics to try to mentally “see” terrain, buildings and rooms far from their physical selves. In ANNA, this technique has been enhanced, so that there are […]Read On »

DVD Review: BLOOD

Rating: Unrated Stars: Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox Writer: Bill Gallagher Director: Nick Murphy Distributor: RLJ Entertainment Release Date: home video/digital download, September 10, 2013 A British crime drama – hell, any kind of production whatever – starring Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Brian Cox and Stephen Graham is going to be worth seeing. As it happens, BLOOD has merits above and beyond its cast, with director Nick Murphy and writer Bill Gallagher maintaining a near-claustrophobic tension as Bettany’s English police detective Joe Fairburn grapples with guilt, fear and rage. Joe works in a precinct with his brother […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Byung Hun Lee, Mary-Louise Parker, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Neal McDonough, Brian Cox Writers: Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber, based on characters created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner Director: Dean Parisot Distributor: Summit Entertainment Release Date: July 19, 2012 One of the main thoughts one has while watching RED 2 is that Helen Mirren is awesome. This isn’t exactly news, but every moment she’s onscreen here, firing two guns simultaneously as if she’s in a Quentin Tarantino shoot-‘em-up with an expression that says, yes, this is going just as she […]Read On »

HANNIBAL series creator Bryan Fuller says people should definitely tune into tonight’s episode, “Releves,” which airs tonight, Thurs. June 13, on NBC at 10 PM. “Episode Twelve, the penultimate episode, is so fantastic, because all of these threads – we land the plane on so many issues and really kind of deliver what’s going on and what Hannibal’s plan is and Will is figuring it out. So many dangling story issues get resolved or addressed in the penultimate episode of the season, and then all of that gets spiked in the finale.” HANNIBAL is based on the character created by […]Read On »
