RED RIDING TRILOGY
“This is the North—we do what we want.”
The Red Riding trilogy is as ambitious a set of films as you’re likely to see, intertwining characters and events from three distinct stories (separated by date: 1974, 1980, 1983) that use the real-life Yorkshire Ripper case to explore tales of deep-seated provincial corruption. You could watch each one as a stand-alone film, but it’s the time-spanning intricacies that give the trilogy its heft. Individually, the films are well-made, well-acted and well-written, but not emotionally engaging enough to justify a one-off viewing; the reward comes from watching them together, with each subsequent film thoughtfully complementing what’s come before. So if you’re going to give the trilogy a try, be ready to commit to it. Some may find this harder than others, as the tone of series is unrelentingly grim and bleak, and its methodical pace requires some patience. The payoff is worth it though; the motivations of the films smoothly transform as they progress, initially introducing conflicts dealing with investigations of the murders only to reveal by the end that the story you’ve been watching has been about something else entirely. If it recalls Zodiac, it’s for all the right reasons.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – TV spots, deleted scenes, a trailer, a making-of, and an interview with Julian Jarrold.

Marmaduke Movie Trailer

Marmaduke

20th Century Fox has released the full length trailer for Marmaduke, the big screen adaptation of the Brad Anderson-created comic strip.

For Phil and Debbie Winslow, moving their family from Kansas to the O.C. is a big deal. For their enormous Great Dane “Marmaduke,” (voiced by Owen Wilson) however, the move means a whole new way of life. It’s chaos at home and awkward at work as the Winslows struggle to control their angsty teenage canine.

Shanghai Noon/Failure to Launch director Tom Dey approached the film like “a John Hughes movie with dogs,” and the dog park is “like high school for dogs” filled with all the kinds of characterizations you might expect. The script “sees Marmaduke navigate a volatile Mutts vs. Pedigrees turf war, woo the purebred of his dreams and overcome a fall from grace.” The movie co-stars William H. Macy and Judy Greer, and features the voices of Emma Stone, Kiefer Sutherland, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Ron Perlman, Anjelah Johnson, Lee Pace, Steve Coogan, George Lopez, Stacy Ferguson, Damon Wayans Jr., David Walliams, Amanda Seyfried and Jeremy Piven.

I rarely like the talking computer animated animal live-action family movies, but the kids love them – they seem to be very profitable. Watch the trailer now, embedded after the jump.

Owen Wilson to Play Marmaduke

owen-wilson-marmaduke

I think it’s the nose. Owen Wilson has signed on to play the voice of everybody’s favorite  Great Dane, Marmaduke, in Fox’s upcoming live action/CG adaptation of the comic strip. The script “sees Marmaduke navigate a volatile Mutts vs. Pedigrees turf war, woo the purebred of his dreams and overcome a fall from grace.” Blame Tim Rasmussen and Vince Di Meglio for that. The film will be directed by Shanghai Noon(I actually liked that!)/Failure to Launch helmer Tom Dey.
