Movie Jeremy Irons on "Batman v Superman"

Jeremy Irons Calls Batman v Superman "Overstuffed"
by Nick Romano
5/29/16



Jeremy Irons isn’t apologizing for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In fact, he thinks the DC film deserved the heavy criticism it received. He played the loyal British butler, Alfred, and while the film was popular at the box office it got an absolute kicking from the critics.

Deservedly so. I mean it took £800 million, so the kicking didn’t matter but it was sort of overstuffed…,” he told The Daily Mail’s Event magazine. “It was very muddled. I think the next one will be simpler. The script is certainly a lot smaller, it’s more linear.





Irons will reprise his role for Justice League: Part One, scheduled for release on Nov. 17, 2017.

I’m tied into the Batman at the minute, which is nice because it’s a bit of income,” he said, adding, “Not that I need a bit of income, but it’s nice to keep ticking over.

After Christopher Lee was cast in Gremlins 2, he apologized to director Joe Dante for appearing in The Howling II (Dante was the director of the original)

Alec Baldwin revealed in his memoir, Nevertheless, that he really doesn't care for much of his own work.

The final ten minutes of 'The Edge' is the only piece of my own film work I can ever watch and enjoy. 'State and Main' is one of the few of my own movies that I can stand watching.

I'm always up for some good cheese, and I've certainly seen worse than Howling 2. But compared to the original, yeah, it wasn't great. It had inspired moments but the worst sin for a movie like this is just to be boring and it often was.

I've never been a fan of Howling II. Not even as a good cheesy horror flick. Howling III now that film I think is a cheese classic. Everything works for me in that. Of the 80's Howling sequels it seems to get the most hate, but I find it very rewatchable, heck, even more so than the original. I even prefer Bob McCarron's werewolf design over Bottin's.

The original Howling I do like, though it's far from my favorite Dante film, and me personally I rank it under An American Werewolf In London, Company Of Wolves, and Silver Bullet. The ending, with Dee Wallace turning into the goofy looking werewolf I just find laughable. She looks more like a Wookie, and doesn't even look like it was done by the same people that created the werewolves earlier in the film.

As a whole the Howling horror franchise is definitely one of the weakest of the more well known ones.

Carey Mulligan Says She "Didn't Love" her Performance in The Great Gatsby
by Devan Coggan
Sept. 5, 2017



Carey Mulligan may have beat out just about every young actress in Hollywood to land her role as Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, but now, she’s revealing that she’s not exactly a fan of her final performance.

I didn’t love my work in Gatsby,” Mulligan told Variety in a new interview. “I’m not sure if I slightly kind of lost my way because I was intimidated by the scale of it. I think I might have been overawed by my experience and intimidated by the level of performances around me.





Leonardo DiCaprio starred in the 2013 film as the titular Gatsby, with Tobey Maguire playing Nick Carraway. Luhrmann’s take on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s seminal novel was a blockbuster spectacle, earning $351 million worldwide on a budget of $105 million. Mulligan added that the film’s scale was part of what intimidated her.

It was how big it was and how visual it was,” she said. “I definitely felt there were fleeting moments where I really found the character and then I felt like I lost her a little bit. I’ve never been wholly thrilled about my work in it. …

I love the character so much and I spent so much time preparing. It might not have translated onto the screen. I think I let my own security get in my own way. In that respect, I wish I could do it again.

From IMDB, Petula Clark talks about her appearing in the 1954 mystery-comedy The Runaway Bus:

Speaking on BBC Radio 4's "Loose Ends" in September 2016, 'Petula Clark' (Lee Nicholls) recalled this as a "dreadful film", noting that the noxious artificial fog used in studio - to disguise the conspicuous lack of background scenery - made the cast fall ill.

Mark Hamill was critical on how director-writer Rian Johnson wrote the Luke Skywalker character during The Last Jedi's promo tours.

He said during various interviews that "this isn't my Luke Skywalker, it's almost a new character" and "it's not my story anymore, Rian Johnson needed me to be a certain way to make the story more effective. Jedis don't give up, right there we had a fundamental difference".




He later expressed regret over publicly voicing his opinions:

"I regret voicing my doubts & insecurities in public. Creative differences are a common element of any project but usually remain private. All I wanted was to make good movie. I got more than that, Rian Johnson made an all-time GREAT one!"

Writer Ben Ramsey apologized for the 2009 Dragonball Evolution movie.

In a May 2016 interview, he said:



I knew that it would eventually come down to this one day. Dragonball Evolution marked a very painful creative point in my life. To have something with my name on it as the writer be so globally reviled is gut wrenching. To receive hate mail from all over the world is heartbreaking.

I spent so many years trying to deflect the blame, but at the end of the day it all comes down to the written word on page and I take full responsibility for what was such a disappointment to so many fans. I did the best I could, but at the end of the day, I ‘dropped the dragon ball.’




I went into the project chasing after a big payday, not as a fan of the franchise but as a businessman taking on an assignment. I have learned that when you go into a creative endeavor without passion you come out with sub-optimal results, and sometimes flat out garbage.

So I’m not blaming anyone for Dragonball but myself. As a fanboy of other series, I know what it’s like to have something you love and anticipate be so disappointing. I hope I can make it up to you by creating something really cool and entertaining that you will like and that is also something I am passionate about. That’s the only work I do now

Chris Hemsworth Admits Thor: The Dark World was "Meh"
by James Hibberd
August 20, 2018



Even Chris Hemsworth now admits Thor: The Dark World just isn’t that good. In a profile interview for GQ, Hemsworth takes a dig at the 2013 less-than-loved Dark Elf-stuffed Marvel sequel.

The first one is good, the second one is meh,” Hemsworth says. “What masculinity was, the classic archetype — it just all starts to feel very familiar. I was so aware that we were right on the edge.

Michael Bay Apologized for 'Armageddon'

The Transformers director may not be known for making critically acclaimed films, but we'd never expect Michael Bay to apologize for one of his own movies. Michael Bay publicly apologized for his 1998 disaster film Armageddon, telling The Miami Herald, "I will apologize for Armageddon, because we had to do the whole movie in 16 weeks... It was a massive undertaking. That was not fair to the movie. I would redo the entire third act if I could."

Viola Davis Regrets her Role in The Help
by Maureen Lee Lenker
Sept. 11, 2018



When it comes to role regrets, Viola Davis has had a few. The acclaimed actress recently told The New York Times in a reader-sourced Q&A that, in hindsight, she’s not satisfied with her role as Aibileen Clark in the 2011 film The Help.

Have I ever done roles that I’ve regretted? I have, and The Help is on that list,” she told the Times.




Adapted from the 2009 Kathryn Stockett novel of the same name, The Help starred Emma Stone as Skeeter Phelan, a young woman writing a book collected from the stories of black maids working in the segregated South.

The film shot Davis to national prominence with an Oscar campaign she was a heavy favorite to win until Meryl Streep scored a surprise victory for her work in The Iron Lady.

The Help also brought Oscar buzz to Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer, the latter of whom ultimately won for Best Supporting Actress.





Davis said she regrets that the film didn’t truly give voice to Aibileen and the other black women at the heart of the story.

I just felt that at the end of the day that it wasn’t the voices of the maids that were heard,” she said. “I know Aibileen. I know Minny. They’re my grandma. They’re my mom. And I know that if you do a movie where the whole premise is, I want to know what it feels like to work for white people and to bring up children in 1963, I want to hear how you really feel about it. I never heard that in the course of the movie.




Davis, who went on to win an Oscar for Fences last year, took care to stress that her regrets have nothing to do with her overall experience working on The Help, or with her fellow cast and crew.

The friendships that I formed are ones that I’m going to have for the rest of my life,” she said. “I had a great experience with these other actresses, who are extraordinary human beings. And I could not ask for a better collaborator than Tate Taylor.




Representatives for Davis did not immediately respond to request for further comment, nor did reps for director Tate Taylor.

A spokesperson for Disney, which distributed the film, did not provide immediate comment.
