Get Him to The Greek

Get Him to The Greek
Apatow: a powerful surname in the world of comedy, and its mere association with a film release warrants a look-in. The latest of these, Get Him to The Greek is something of a side-story to 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall – produced by Judd Apatow and based on characters developed by Apatow-brethren performer Jason Segel. It doesn't quite stack up against the high notes, and the gags are uneven - but an overdose of pop-culture and some memorable set-ups make this a very amusing commentary on the foibles of rock stardom.

Reprising his role as Aldous Snow is comedian and performer Russell Brand. Snow represents all the lavish and egotistic contrivances the music industry breeds, embodied in a heroin-chic frame and cheeky mug. This is, of course, made all the more interesting given that Brand himself struggled with drug use and has, like his character, been clean for years now. Snow, on the other hand, ultimately tumbles off the wagon in spectacular fashion, leaving his gorgeous pop-performer partner (Aussie stunner and solid actress Rose Byrne) behind. He hits the skids after releasing an indulgent and racially offensive album – and it falls on the enthusiastic but beleaguered young music label executive, Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) to relaunch his career and get him to the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles at all costs.

Command Performance

Command Performance
Dolph Lundgren is a man of many talents and he shows most of them off as he writes, directs and stars in Command Performance, which recently came out on DVD. The movie is a complete throwback to the late 80′s and early 90′s when the world was obsessed with anything “Die Hard in a…” In this case we have Die Hard in a Russian concert hall. The newly elected Russian president had two daughters who are huge fans of American pop princess Venus so the president arranges a special charity concert that features her, along with a number of other acts including rock band CMF and their drummer Joe (Lundgren). Everything seems to be going fine until terrorists take over the concert hall and start making demands. Joe, who had been sneaking a cigarette at the time, takes it upon himself to help rescue the president and stop the terrorists.

Romantic Debtors

Romantic Debtors
Given its title and the presence of top Korean goofball Lim Chang Jung, it should come as no surprise to learn that “Romantic Debtors” is a romantic comedy. Directed by Shin Keun Ho, the film also features popular actress Uhm Ji Won (with who he co-starred in “Scout”) as his love interest, in a rather unlikely tale about a bad tempered detective falling for a hard nosed debt collector – surely a sign that genre scriptwriters are having to look pretty far afield to come up with new ideas for wacky mismatched couples.

Lim Chang Jung (“Sex is Zero”) plays Bang, a homicide cop who has unfortunately landed himself up to his neck in debt after being let down by a friend. Chasing him up with irate calls every half hour demanding that he catches up on his payments is the hot-headed and frequently foul-mouthed Mu Ryeong (Uhm Ji Won, who also recently appeared in the bawdy comedy “Foxy Festival”), who spends her days yelling down the phone at customers. Love seems to be in the air after the two meet at the police station, though sparks of the wrong kind are soon flying once he realises that she is in fact the harridan who has been making his life a misery.

Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist
You know there's a problem when the most interesting character in a film called Oliver Twist is a supporting woman named Nancy. Technically sound and surprisingly faithful to its source material, Roman Polanski's version of Oliver Twist comes across as uninspired and flat. Only two performances - that of Leanne Rowe as Nancy Sikes and Jamie Foreman as Bill Sikes - have energy. The biggest deficiency is Barney Clark, whose performance as the title character vacillates between befuddlement and artificial weepiness (rarely have I seen more crocodile tears). For the story to work, sympathy with Oliver is mandatory, but Clark's acting and Polanski's direction keep the character at arm's length. I cared about Nancy and wanted Bill to get his comeuppance, but Oliver seems inconsequential.

License to Wed

License to Wed
No matter how hard I try, I'm finding it difficult to write anything positive about License to Wed. This movie is bad from top to bottom, front to back, and start to finish. Many romantic comedies sacrifice humor in favor of romance; this one isn't romantic either. If this was the debut outing for Robin Williams or Mandy Moore, neither would get another job. Williams is as unfunny as he has ever been and Moore shows no evidence of charisma or charm. At least License to Wed wasn't so godawful that I wanted to drive a spike through my head to make the pain stop, and when it was all over, I didn't run gibbering up the aisle in a frantic break for the exit.

Jane Austen Book Club

Jane Austen Book Club
The Jane Austen Book Club is an example of how a movie can follow the general plot of a book yet fail to capture the spirit. The problem is a simple one to identify: much of the enjoyment derived from Karen Joy Fowler's novel comes from the way in which it is written, and the manner in which she interweaves subtle references and asides to Austen. Robin Swicord's adaptation is stripped-down and straightforward, and something has been lost in translation. The film comes across like a soap opera and there are too many characters and storylines for any one of them to grab the heart and imagination. The film isn't painful but it is disappointing.

Dadetown

Dadetown
Dadetown is a "meta-documentary" about small-town America in the 1990s. Is a rural, close-knit community still the "American dream", or, with the closing of factories, has it become a kind of American nightmare? A stunning first feature from director Russ Hexter, Dadetown leads to an unforgettable revelation during the closing credits. Hexter, at the age of 26, has made a film that puts to shame the work of directors many years his senior. Sadly, this will be the only movie from the NYU grad. Two days before he was scheduled to accompany Dadetown to the Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema, Hexter died.

The Good Night

The Good Night
The movie follows a man's search for perfection in a world where life rarely measures up to the idealized images that constantly bombard us. Freeman plays Gary Shaller, who gained commercial success in previous years as the keyboard player in the fictional band "On The One". He is in a dull relationship, and working for his former band mate Paul, played by Simon Pegg, writing and recording commercial jingles. Gary eventually discovers that he is having lucid dreams about a woman named Anna, played by Penelope Cruz, with whom he is deeply infatuated. He aims to learn more about lucid dreaming by buying books and even attending classes taught by an eccentric lucid dreaming enthusiast, Mel (Danny DeVito). Gary eventually discovers that the girl he dreams about does, in fact, exist. Paul arranges for Gary to meet her, but this proves disappointing, as she fails to live up to the expectations that Gary has built up in his dreams of her. He eventually continues to dream about her, and even soundproofs his apartment, and makes other efforts to be able to sleep longer, so that he can remain with Anna for longer periods of time. Eventually, feeling as though he is betraying his girlfriend Dora, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, he attempts to go back to her.

Will is annoyed, explaining to his wife Joséphine (Marion Cotillard) that because his father never told the straight truth about anything, he felt unable to trust him. He is troubled to think that he might have a similarly difficult relationship with his future children. Will's relationship with his father becomes so strained that they do not talk for three years. But when his father's health starts to fail, Will and the now pregnant Joséphine return to Alabama. On the plane, Will recalls his father's tale of how he braved a swamp as a child, and met a witch who showed him his death in her glass eye. With this knowledge, Edward knew there were no odds he could not face.
