tv The Film Review BBC News August 16, 2019 8:45pm-9:00pm BST
there is the manson family, the manson family cult, thank you for your time. thank you for can, coming on. which brings us a much darker side now on bbc news it's time to the story. for the film review. so there is a lot going on. yes, if you want your big ott tarantino moments — you just saw a clip of bruce lee — there are moments like that in the film. overall, it is much more serious, more authentic, perhaps less immediate than some of the other hello, welcome to the film films, but it is one, review on bbc news. you know, as i said, to take us through this week's i have been to a couple of times, cinema releases is james king. i think it's a film you will want to revisit so james, what have we got? because there is so much going on. well, we have got leo, brad i have seen criticisms and margot, as i like to call them, that it is self—indulgent teaming up for quentin tarantino‘s and that the sharon tate character, ninth film, once upon played by margot robbie, a time in hollywood. a great actress, shejust isn't given enough lines. and dora the explorer goes from cartoon to live she doesn't have a lot of dialogue, that is true. action and searches i think there is a problem that it is margot robbie. for the lost city of gold. because she is famous, and if you are desperate we expect her to be in it more. she is a supporting character, for a film where12—year—olds say disgusting things, she is not a lead. you are in luck. if it was someone less famous good boys is also out. we wouldn't focus on it so much. there are moments where it is about her and she doesn't say well, let us not start
with the 12—year—olds, anything, but through facial let us start in hollywood and quentin tarantino. expressions she says so much. how is it? there is a scene where sharon tate is watching one of her own films at the cinema, it is perhaps it is just a lot of film. the most beautiful moment in the film. it is a film i have seen she doesn't say anything, a couple of times, i am but you get the sense desperate to see it again. of what she is trying to convey. we go back to 1969 hollywood it is not all about dialogue. for this movie, a changing time. we haven't mentioned it was, we see the youth culture violence a lot yet. and the counterculture starting imean, tarantino, cataclysmic violence quite often, what about here? to encroach upon the old guard, on the mainstream. yes, there are some moments, it focus on three different people. some explosive violence, one is rick dalton, an actor played but overall it feels slower, calmer, and it does by leonardo dicaprio, who feels feel more mature. like his moment has passed. he feels middle—aged and too old. this is his ninth film. cliff booth is played by brad pitt, he has been making movies for, what, 27, 28 years. who is rick's best friend, he is not the young his stuntman, and you have buck that he once was. sharon tate, played that is very much by margot robbie. reflected in this film. sharon tate was a real person, it is about people who aren't as she was a real actor, young and cool as they used to be. married to roman polanski, and she is the opposite, let us move on to dora her star is on the rise. it is three people over a few and the lost city of gold. does it strike gold? days in hollywood, 1969. this is a clip where rick it is actually fun. is desperately trying to get some it is a live action version stunt work for cliff. of the cartoon series. let us have a look. it is huge on kids‘ tv. in the cartoon she is young, probably about six in the cartoon. in this live action version i can't afford to hire a bunch she has been aged up,
she is a now teenager, of guys that smoke cigarettes and sit around and talk to each 16 years old. other all day n the chance leaves the rainforest and goes to la i might use them. i got a four—man team here. to hang out with her cousin. still very adventurous though. i need more than that, i got to get it approved. i got to look after my dudes. one good thing about the tv show, if your dudes were a better match it has been quite moral and upright. i would say ok, you got me, educational, very strong but that is not the case and you know it. 00:02:19,791 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 he is a great match for me. on celebrating latino culture. it is all still there in the movie but the key difference is it is co—written by a guy called nick stoller, who worked on the recent muppet films. if you've seen them, they send themselves up a bit. they are very respectful of the muppet legacy but they send themselves up and it's the... i love that line, "respectful of the muppet legacy". you've got be respectful of the muppet legacy. this is respectful of the tv show, but it does have a laugh too. there is a few knowing winks and nods and gags in there for the adults who will take their kids. ultimately, very clean cut, very sweet, very lovely, but there are some good jokes in there too. the idea being the jungle of school or secondary school is more scary than the jungle jungle.
it is like you have seen it. saw the trailer. it is a teen movie because of that, but i still think it plays to under tens. it is not like a proper teen film, it's very much aimed at young children. now talking about the young children, what about those i2—year—olds and their foul language? yes, good boys. it is produced by seth rogan, he is a writer, producer and actor. even though it is about three 12—year—old boys, because it is produced by seth rogan, who made the brilliant film superbad, a fabulously filthy teen movie. this is like a junior version of superbad. so three boys, and they are getting into trouble when they lose their drone in a neighbour's garden. let us look at good boys. can we please have the drone back? if you don't give it back, i'll tell my dad you stole it. i'll tell them you're a pervert. we'll tell the whole school. this is harassment. we will tell everyone
you're a misogynist. i never misoged anyone. this is what happens when you don't respect women. i respect women. my mom's my best friend. what about me ? does it work? that is all we could show. ah — because? because it is fruity. that is the joke, the joke is it is a 15 certificate film and it is young children saying inappropriate things, and they say some things that will make you laugh out loud, and that will make your hair curl. as well as being funny, that is truthful. i remember being 11 or 12 and you think you know everything, you have a lot of bravado, you don't really know what you are talking about, but you pretend you do and that is reflected in the film. the interesting thing is, as the film goes on, it goes from being superbad to being more like stand by me. it starts to get poignant and deal with issues of growing up and friendship and childhood. so yes, there is a lot of dirty jokes, it is not for children, aimed at is—year—olds, but the surprise is at times it
gets quite touching. i never expected that. do you think, like the three i2—year—olds in question are boys, is it going to appeal to girls? i think teenagers, i think that is the joke, is that they are too young to be saying this, and that is the joke. if you are a teenager you will find that funny. what do we do now? notorious, this is the best film out at the moment. a reissue, bfi have reissued this, the classic hitchcock movie, ingrid bergman, cary grant. there is a cary grant season at the moment at the bfi in london, so it ties in nicely with that, and restored as well, so looking sparkling, like it could have been made yesterday, and the chemistry as well between cary grant and ingrid bergman isjust still sparkling itself. so good together, this romance, she is undercover on a mission in rio, he is her government handler and they have a complex romance. still looks brilliant, immaculate, perhaps a simpler story than some other hitchcock movies, but so glad to see it
on the big screen. it still has that brooding impending horror about it. the tension is ridiculous, there are classic moments, scenes that go on for a long time, you're at the edge of your seat because you don't know what is going to happen — you kind of do because you have seen it before. the tension is there, so even though it is 73 years old. 73 years old! 1946. yes, still works. just time for a look at a dvd, what is your favourite? benjamin. this is out on dvd. simon amstel wrote and directed this. stars colin morgan playing the title character. benjamin is like simon amstel, because he is sort of a neurotic vegan film director. this is a british film? yes, romantic comedy. this is what happens when benjamin meets the new love of his life. this is noah, very laid back, french, very relaxed, musician. it's a romcom, reminds me of annie hall, there's so much anxiety in this.
all the characters have neuroses, but very charming and funny and packs a lot in. it's 85 minutes long but it packs a lot in. and even better, there is a cameo from mark kermode in it! you're kidding me! what does he do? he plays himself, who else? great romcom, very romantic, very funny. and slightly younger than the annie hall generation. it feels like it is very much 20 somethings in london, trying to cope with life, trying to cope with being grown up. and poignantjust or funny enough? i think it is both. it feels like it is simon amstel opening up his heart, showing to it the world and the results are very poignant. thank you. it has been great having you, come back again soon. that's it for this week. thanks for watching. goodbye from our film review.
good evening, wet and windy has been the order of the day for much of the uk, across england and wales in the rain really set and through this afternoon and we had seen some happy bursts, a different story for northern ireland and parts of scotland, ring cleared eastwards behind it with skies brightened up and one or two showers here but for all of us it has been blustery, courtesy of this unseasonably deep area of low pressure which will remain dominant throughout the weekend as it meanders eastwards. there is still some rain around this evening. a gradually works its way eastwards showing the far southeast eventually. and some showers happy and potentially country in the north and potentially country in the north and west of the uk and because it is blustery the temperatures will not drop away very far and a mild start
then to saturday morning. for england and wales through saturday it will be drier and brighter and one or two it will be drier and brighter and one oi’ two showers on it will be drier and brighter and one or two showers on the cards but showers more focused closer to the area of low pressure and merging together at times to find longer spells of rain and heavy and potentially foundry. blustery for all of us but particularly for the west coast of scotland where we could see the guests a 55 mph. and the sunshine down to the south east, it will cloud over to saturday evening and we have a wiggling leather front that is going to start to make inroads and the exact track at this, a bit of uncertainty but it could bring some rain as far north as he east anglia overnight. gradually clearing down towards the south and east as we approached don on sunday morning. the pressure friendly and charge and sunday is a very similar set up to saturday and england and wales a lot of pine and dry weather. the chance of a few showers but more showers the further
