Film Review: ‘Boarding School’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Boarding School’
“Boarding School” is the kind of enterprise whose problems you might normally suspect as being the result of a mismatch between helmer and scenarist — except in this case both are Boaz Yakin, whose diverse prior films include “Fresh,” “A Price Above Rubies,” “Remember the Titans” and “Max.” His first directorial foray into anything approaching horror terrain is a contemporary Gothic melodrama in which (just like current release “Down a Dark Hall”) “problem” children are herded off to an isolated, creepy academy where members of the skeleton staff have a sinister agenda.

Boarding School” includes an odd mix of narrative elements within a classically Grimm child-endangerment scenario that would work best played as a modern fairy tale. Yet Yakin chooses to pace the film more slowly as a serious drama, which keeps the suspense from building real momentum and exacerbates the script’s implausibilities. A more magical-realist treatment might have have

All Relative Review

Toward the end of recently crowned rom-com classic Crazy, Stupid, Love, there is a big plot twist. For those of you who have not seen the film, I will not spoil it here. In vague terms, one of the characters from the main subplot is related to the characters from the main plot. The twist works because the hints dropped about this connection beforehand are subtle. Meanwhile, the aftermath of its reveal makes the story more interesting for the protagonist of the film, played by Steve Carell. This plot advancement creates genuine surprise and moves the plot in a more intriguing direction.

J.C. Khoury probably wished that his new romantic comedy, All Relative, which hinges much of its story on a big surprise and a colossal plot contrivance, had the same success. Sadly, not only is the revelation obvious – the title even drops a whopper of a hint – but this

'Homeland' season 3 UK airdate confirmed as October 6

Channel 4 has announced that Homeland's third season will premiere in the UK next month.

The award-winning drama - starring Damian Lewis and Claire Danes - will return on Sunday, October 6 at 9pm. It will premiere on Showtime in the Us on Sunday, September 29.

Homeland triumphed at the 2013 Primetime Emmys on Sunday night (September 22), with Danes taking home the 'Leading Actress in a Drama Series' award for the second year running and writer Henry Bromell being recognised for his work on season two's 'Q&A'.

Fox 21's Bert Salke recently billed the new season as "Homeland 2.0", and claimed that viewers can expect a different, "more emotional" show.

Meanwhile, Lewis told Digital Spy earlier this year that he does not see Carrie and Brody's romance as "a story that has got legs", and argued that the pair would be "in the divorce courts very quickly".

David Aaron Baker Assesses the Cast of Homeland

When Homeland returns this fall, we’ll be knee deep in the aftermath of the Season 2 finale. Many characters we had gotten to know through out the show’s run met grisly ends in the last couple episodes leading up to the finale, which concluded with a massive explosion and even more deaths. With so many characters now dead and gone, Homeland needs to replenish its well of talent. So far many great actors have joined for the show’s third season and the latest is Boardwalk Empire actor David Aaron Baker. Unfortunately for him, his character might have the hardest job there could be in a show like this.

According to THR, Baker is guest starring as Dr. Harlan, an assessment shrink who will be meeting with Saul, Carrie and other CIA survivors of last season’s devastating terrorist attack. I say his job will be hard because these

Review: Edge Of Darkness

This is the Pure Movies review of Edge of Darkness, directed by Martin Campbell and starring Mel Gibson, Ray Winstone, Danny Huston, Bojana Novakovic, Shawn Roberts, David Aaron Baker and Jay O. Sanders. Please be aware that this review contains major plot spoilers. Another Mel Gibson movie. I had better see my pharmacist. What new jewel to the oeuvre after What Women Want, Signs, and surely his greatest stretch as an actor—at the recent Golden Globe Awards—where he acted like a nice drunk? The scars of Braveheart are still very much with me. It won Mel Gibson an Oscar as Best Director. Hitchcock never won one. Billy Wilder never won one. Robert Altman and David Lynch have never won one.

[DVD Review] Cinema Pride Collection

When studios put out themed DVD collections for whatever occasion, the final result rarely does the subject in question justice. When they seek to honor independent flicks they typically just go for the most popular ones and not the best. For foreign films they’ll select the few that actually made ripples and not the underdog that had to fight for every theater screen. However, when MGM compiled its Cinema Pride Collection in honor of June being Gay Pride month they hit the nail on the head – and they hit it dead on. The collection not only features some of the favorites within the gay community but it features a few highly acclaimed heavy hitters as well. This may just be one of the best box sets a studio has ever released that isn’t based on one actor or director’s filmography. It has variety and it has quality in spades.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Edge of Darkness’ Illuminates Mel Gibson’s Inner Demons

Chicago – When Wgn-tv’s Dean Richards asked Mel Gibson whether he believes the public will perceive him in a different light after “all that’s been in the news” about him, the “Edge of Darkness” star answered by calling Richards an “a—hole.” This amusing interview-turned-Internet sensation once again proved that Gibson clearly has issues.

Yet like many similarly troubled and personally flawed artists, from Woody Allen to Roman Polanski, Gibson’s inner demons have actually enhanced his work rather than detracted from it. His four directorial efforts, stretching all the way back to 1993’s “The Man Without a Face,” are all blatantly colored by Gibson’s deep-seated masochism. “Passion of the Christ” is as much an act of self-flagellation as it is a blood-drenched tribute to Jesus’s sacrifice. It certainly wasn’t a throwaway decision by Gibson to cast himself as the hands that crucify Christ. In “Edge of Darkness,
