Sergeant Pepper (2004)
Talk about the process of writing, making, and getting Spring released
Justin Benson: Spring was written while we were mixing our first film Resolution.
Three police officers murdered in a lethal ambush; a fourth spectacularly defenestrated; a seriously injured individual in witness protection finished off in hospital – and the only survivor of the carnage, Di Lindsay Denton, who may or may not be personally implicated in all or some or none of the above carnage, has her head violently stuck down the lavatory by her colleagues as punishment for dispatching her three colleagues with "no firearms, no backup".
Welcome to the gripping world of BBC2's Line of Duty, halfway through its second series and, without so much as a Nordic woolly jumper or sub-title in sight, possibly on its way to becoming as addictive as The Bridge, The Killing and Borgen. If there is any justice in the world,
German director Sandra Nettlebeck returns with her fourth feature, Last Love, adapted from a novel by writer/actress Francoise Dorner, a co-production effort that is mostly an English language feature, though not likely to reach the heights of acclaim achieved by her successful 2001 debut, Mostly Martha. As usual, Nettlebeck has amassed an interesting cast likely to attract attention, so it’s disheartening that the film is ultimately a rather ungainly and predictable familial drama with narrative dynamics similar to a slew of recent titles dealing with the loss, regret, and estrangement.
Matthew Morgan (Michael Caine) is a grief stricken American professor living in Paris, unable to get over the death of his wife Joan (Jane Alexander), who passed away in 2007. Life seems to have hit a standstill, with Matthew wallowing in an unkempt existence, refusing to learn the native language of

Glee’s second episode of the season and second half of their Beatles tribute is fun and filled to the brim with well-executed and unique Glee-ifed versions of The Beatles’ best experimental era work. While the musical performances are strong, this episode seems to highlight all the character development issues viewers have been fed up with in the recent past. Likewise, writing for this episode is not as strong as the season opener. On a positive note, the actors are spot on and distract from some of the cheesy dialogue.
Character development-wise, there are some issues that have been ongoing in past seasons and the trend continues into season five. It always feels like the writers are never sure how to utilize the character of Sam Evans
Watching Danny Boyle's £27m spectacular, I was reminded of an old rhyme about a famous director of Hollywood epics. It ran "Cecil B DeMille rather against his will, Was persuaded to leave Moses out of the Wars of the Roses." In other words, in trying to give us a potted, panoramic vision of Britain past, present and future, Boyle seemed to throw in everything bar the kitchen sink. Logistically, the show was a triumph. Imaginatively, it left something to be desired.
Like Boyle's National Theatre production of Frankenstein, it began with the sounding of a giant bell. And I liked the opening image of a lost vision of pastoral England: a place of shire horses, sheep and cows, Maypole dancing, home-baking and cricket on the village green. The shattering of that
From a bucolic green and pleasant land via the belching chimney stacks of the Industrial Revolution to the internet age, Danny Boyle's attempt to define Britishness in the opening hour of his Olympic opening ceremony was a madcap, surreal, moving and often confounding affair.
An "industrial parade" of Jarrow marchers and colliery bands, hundreds of dancing nurses accompanied by Mike Oldfield, the Queen's encounter with James Bond as well as a nightmarish sequence of childhood terrors – they all featured.
When Dizzee Rascal, tiny among the armies of volunteer dancers around him, appeared to sing Bonkers at the climax of a third act that starts as a love story and becomes a riotous celebration of British music through the ages, it felt curiously appropriate.
It was typical that the arrival of the head of state,
About twenty-five years ago there was a famous commercial by Faberge about passing on the details of this great shampoo from one person to another. The copy went something like “And they’ll tell two friends, and they’ll tell two friends, and so on and so on and so on.” Wayne and Garth satirized it in “Wayne’s World” but at the end of the day, this was probably one of the earliest and
I must say, judging from these latest shots, this looks like it has the potential to be a lot of fun. John Malkovich appears to be channeling the gone-to-seed James Bond look and the sight of Dame Helen Mirren welding a huge firearm is worth the admittance price alone (although I’m not sure what’s happening with Morgan Freeman’s Sergeant Pepper-esque costume!).
Directed by Robert Schwentke (Flightplan) from a graphic novel by Warren Ellis, Red is released in the states in October. We’ll keep you posted when we have a confirmed date for the UK.

Jeff Goldblum: Well, let me see, it's very challenging because the writing is wonderful and the people around me are the best in the world. So I'm just trying to live up to that and to
The “Blah Blah Blah” songstress donned a sexy form-fitting zebra-print catsuit along with some interesting face paint.
And it looks like Ke$ha knows how to pack ‘em in- hundreds of fans were turned away from the show because it was already full.
The night before, she sported a red jacket to the Vivienne Westwood after-party at Bungalow 8, telling press, “I was going for that Sergeant Pepper vibe.”
