Movie Review: ‘Locke’

locke tom hardy

There are plenty of minimalist films out there. And then there's the tiny sub-genre of the truly, ultra-minimalist films: One character. In one place. Think "Buried," in which Ryan Reynolds spent 94 minutes stuck in a coffin, with a waning cellphone. Or "All is Lost," in which Robert Redford spent 106 minutes adrift on a stricken sailboat, with waning options. And now there's "Locke," in which Tom Hardy spends 85 minutes in his car, just driving south on a British motorway, toward London. His life isn't in danger — well, not in the literal sense. And the Bluetooth is working just fine. The only thing ... more

Summer Preview: Jon Favreau Cooks Up 'Chef'

chef movie

NEW YORK (AP) — On "Chef," Jon Favreau got to cook with his own ingredients and set his own menu. The parallels for Favreau and the film are unmistakable. In the movie, which he wrote and directed, he plays a creativity-stifled restaurant chef who's fired for going off-menu, but is reborn when he opens his own food truck. After years directing big summer blockbusters ("Iron Man," ''Iron Man 2," ''Cowboys & Aliens"), "Chef" is a return to Favreau's indie roots. (He wrote and starred in 1996's "Swingers.") "Chef" is Favreau's own personal food truck. "After doing a lot of big movies with a lot of concerns re... more

NEW YORK (AP) — The idea for Melissa McCarthy's upcoming comedy, "Tammy," was born over breakfast. The film, which Warner Bros. will release July 2, is directed by McCarthy's husband, Ben Falcone . They wrote it together, from Falcone's early-morning epiphany. "He came down stairs one morning, blurry-eyed, hair all over the place, in his pajamas, and goes: 'I'm not sure if I had a dream, but I want to write a movie where you go on a road trip with your grandma and I think she's an alcoholic and she sleeps around,'" says McCarthy. "He was, like, not fully awake. I was like, 'OK... more

Summer Movie Preview: Bay Reboots 'Transformers'

NEW YORK (AP) — Summer is the season of Michael Bay. As much as anyone else, Bay — in movies like "Armageddon," '' Pearl Harbor" and "Transformers" — has shaped what the summer movie is: its quick-cutting bombast, its visual-effects flourish, its capacity for mass destruction. This summer, he'll release "Transformers: Age of Extinction" ( June 27), the fourth film in the franchise, with a revamped cast led by Mark Wahlberg . The 49-year-old Bay, who also produces "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" ( Aug. 8) later in the season, is well acquainted with the scale of the m... more

Indie Film Noir Sees Revival

blue ruin movie

Film noir, the shadowy, psychologically loaded cycle of crime movies that flourished in Hollywood from World War II through the 1950s, holds a special place in the twisted hearts of filmmakers. Neo-noir revivals have broken out periodically since the mid-20th century. "Chinatown" in 1974, the Coen brothers' debut "Blood Simple" a decade later and the ironic approach Quentin Tarantino spearheaded in the 1990s all placed then-contemporary spins on the noir themes of paranoia, betrayal, obsession and corruption. We're now in the midst of another great noir renaissance, although you may not have noticed it. ... more
