Ray Donovan: a show that's well, well worth watching

Robb Sheppard Sep 5, 2017

The fix is in. Here's why Hollywood crime drama Ray Donovan deserves a place among the hallowed TV greats...

Breaking Bad. The Sopranos. The Wire.

See related Star Wars: Rogue One review Star Wars: Rogue One - what did you think?

Three of the most popular and critically acclaimed serialised dramas. The Mount Rushmore of TV. Look up any list and you’ll see them there, digging their elbows in and jostling for position inside the top ten.

But if we’re going with the Mount Rushmore metaphor, there’s a blank space on the mountain and an argument for Ray Donovan to have his face carved into the rock, nestled between McNulty, Tony and Heisenberg.

Donovan’s the answer to Hollywood’s biggest problems: Heavyweight boxing champ has a dead girl in his bath tub? Call Ray. Pop megastar bribed with a sex tape leak?

Tribeca 2017 Interview(s): The cast and crew of ‘Chuck’

Rocky. Rocky II. Rocky III. Rocky IV….I could keep going and somehow we’ll end with Creed, but that doesn’t matter. What does, however, is who Rocky was inspired after, and what that man has to lay claim to fame.

Chuck Wepner is his name. He’s the man that went fifteen rounds in the ring with the man of the hour, Muhammad Ali. Chuck also happens to be the name of the new film coming out about his life in and out of the ring and show business. Directed by Philippe Falardeau (who had previously directed The Good Lie), the film stars Liev Schreiber as Chuck Wepner, Naomi Watts as Linda, Elisabeth Moss as Phyliss, Jim Gaffigan as John, and Ron Perlman as Al Braverman.

Of course, since this is a dramatic version of real life events, it wouldn’t be a film without having Sylvester Stallone

Movie Review – Chuck (2017)

Chuck, 2017.

Directed by Phillipe Falardeau.

Starring Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Jim Gaffigan, Morgan Spector, Pooch Hall, Zina Wilde, Sadie Sink, and Naomi Watts.

Synopsis:

A drama inspired by the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner.

Are strong acting and unrecognizable familiar faces enough to push a film over the hump from bad to good? Usually yes, but Chuck (also known as The Bleeder in other territories) is a rare sort of misfire that only has the talent in front of the screen going for it. Directed by Phillipe Falardeau (The Good Lie and Monsieur Lazhar), notable names such as Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, and more have all gone through impressive physical transformations, whether it be from physical makeovers to New Jersey accents and more, and while they all generally seem to be firing on all cylinders including having excellent chemistry with one another (Naomi Watts, the

Festival Feature: The Films of the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival

Chicago – The 16th Tribeca Film Festival wrapped last Sunday (April 30, 2017) and the award-winning films of the festival have been named. Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com was there for the first week of Tribeca and files his personal best of the films he experienced.

This is Patrick switching to first person, and I was able to see 13 media and film works, and took a turn in the “Immersive” or Virtual Reality arcade (there will a separate article on that experience). I sampled TV, short films, documentaries and narrative films, and rank them from first preferred on down, but honestly I didn’t see anything that I didn’t like, which is a testament to the programmers of this iconic film festival.

The following are the prime 13, and an indication of when they are scheduled to release…

A Dog’s Purpose review: Dir. Lasse Hallström (2017)

A Dog’s Purpose review: Dennis Quaid, Bryce Gheisar and Josh Gad lead the cast of this pleasant and very uplifting family movie from accomplished filmmaker Lasse Hallström.

A Dog’s Purpose review by Paul Heath, May 2017.

A Dog’s Purpose, which is actually based on the novel of the same name by W. Bruce Cameron, who also co-writes the screenplay, is broken down into several chunks, each one narrated by Gad telling the story from the point of view of a different dog. The narrative covers the life of that dog from birth to death, and, once it dies, is reincarnated into a different breed, and sometimes different sex. The first, set sometime in the 1950s, follows golden retriever Bailey, a dog owned by an eight year old named Ethan and his family. The story spans the course of a decade until the teenage Ethan (K.J. Apa) moves away to college,

Chuck: first trailer for real-life Rocky Balboa movie

Tony Sokol Apr 10, 2017

The boxer who fought Muhammad Ali and inspired Rocky gets his real story told in Chuck. Here's the first trailer...

If you're a fan of Sylvester Stallone's Rocky, you may want to keep an eye on Chuck. Directed by Philippe Falardeau, the biopic tells the story of former New Jersey boxer and booze peddler Chuck Wepner, who went 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali, and inspired the character Rocky Balboa.

Wepner is played by a beefy Liev Schreiber, while the movie also stars Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Naomi Watts, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Rapaport, Pooch Hall and Morgan Spector in supporting roles.

Chuck received good reviews when it screened at the 2016 Venice Film Festival, so we're rather looking forward to this one. Like Balboa

Liev Schreiber stars as the real Rocky Balboa in first trailer for Chuck

The real Rocky Balboa takes center stage in the first trailer for Philippe Falardeau’s Chuck. Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan) steps into the ring to portray Chuck Wepner, the once “heavyweight champ in New Jersey,” who Sylvester Stallone used for inspiration when writing Rocky, the quintessential boxing movie. Wepner earned notoriety and attention in 1975 after almost going 15 rounds with “The Greatest” himself, Muhammad Ali. Check out the trailer here…

A Wepner movie has been long in the works, with Schreiber and his co-star (and wife) Naomi Watts (Demolition) being attached since 2011 when the movie was titled The Bleeder. The film wrapped principal photography in December 2015 and was screened at the 2016 Venice Film Festival in September, so its theatrical release is a long time coming.

The few critics who were able to catch the film at Venice welcomed it with mostly positive reception, calling it familiar yet enjoyable and commending a no-punches-pulled performance from Schreiber.

Chuck Trailer: The True Story Behind Rocky Balboa
IFC has released the first trailer for its upcoming biopic Chuck, which is set to hit theaters on May 5. While many fans may not know Chuck Wepner by name, the New Jersey boxer served as the inspiration for Sylvester Stallone's iconic character Rocky Balboa. Liev Schreiber stars as Wepner, whose extraordinary true story is told for the first time on the big screen.

Chuck Wepner was a liquor salesman from New Jersey who went 15 rounds with the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali. In his ten years in the ring, Wepner endured two knockouts, eight broken noses, and 313 stitches. But his toughest fights were outside the ring: an epic life of drugs, booze, wild women, incredible highs and extraordinary lows in IFC's biopic.

Liev Schreiber is joined by an all-star cast that also includes Naomi Watts, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Rapaport and Pooch Hall, with

First Trailer For Boxing Pic ‘Chuck’ (Formerly ‘The Bleeder’) Starring Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss & Naomi Watts

  • The Playlist
Last year, two boxing movies duked it out on the festival circuit: “Bleed Like This” starring Miles Teller, which also opened in the fall, and “The Bleeder,” led by Liev Schreiber. Now, perhaps as a bid to extinguish any confusion, the latter has been blandly retitled “Chuck,” as it gears up to hit theaters.

Co-starring Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Naomi Watts, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Rapaport, and Pooch Hall, and directed by Philippe Falardeau (“Monsieur Lazhar“), the film tells the true story of journeyman boxer Chuck Wepner, who suddenly found himself in sport’s biggest spotlight.
