    Paul Blu-Ray review

    Every comedy has a target audience and Paul's is clearly the Comic-Con crowd. But even as a member of that crowd, I didn't find it to be the ultimate fanboy farce it purports to be. It tries too hard, for one, and rarely goes for broke, putting a geeky spin on conventional gags and settling for all-too-familiar cult-culture references. Still, there are plenty of laughs to be had, ample alien antics to enjoy, and enough Pegg, Frost, Bateman, Hader and Wiig to go around. Whether you love or loathe Paul, or lament the squandered potential, though, Universal's Blu-ray release will not disappoint. It boasts a near-perfect video transfer, an Earth-moving DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and a fairly impressive supplemental package. At the very least, Paul is worth a rent. For many, it may even be worth a blind buy. So fire up some popcorn, toss on your favorite Star Wars shirt, and see if it works for you.

    Simon Pegg To Star In A Fantastic Fear Of Everything… And Jump Start A Bona Fide UK Film Studio? Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    It’s been shooting for two and a half weeks, and now we know what it is, what it’s about and who is behind it. Simon Pegg’s current project is a UK-set picture called A Fantastic Fear of Everything. For some reason, its producers are describing it as a “psycho-comedy”.

    The official plot blurb is a good deal more revealing:


    Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his ‘big break’ rapidly turns into his ‘big breakdown’, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

    Jack? Victorian serial killers? Really? Let’s see if it does go there…

    Also in the cast are Amara Karan, Clare Higgins and Sheridan Smith. The film is being directed by Crispian Mills and Chris Hopewell, and Mills wrote the screenplay.

    You may remember Mills as the frontman of the band Kula Shaker, or as the son of Hayley Mills and Roy Boulting. Hopewell, meanwhile, was one half of Collison Films and through that company made some animation, FX and design-led music videos, the best of which really aren’t bad at all.

    I’d be very surprised if Hopewell’s involvement doesn’t signify some animated or FX heavy sequences in the film.

    Fantastic Fear, as I imagine we’ll all be calling it before long, is the first film backed by Pinewood Films, the new finance initiative from Pinewood Studios. Could the UK be taking its first tentative steps towards having a full and lasting, US-style film studio? Only time will tell, but that would certainly be a very good thing for filmmakers born under these skies.

    1-1 Interview: Director Joe Cornish on Attack the Block

    There also seems to be a strong sense of the Walter Hill and John Carpenter sense of action.

    I’m a big fan of first films by filmmakers who are a little high concept about it, and bite off a little more than they can chew. I’m thinking about The Terminator, or Duel or Assault on Precinct 13, movies that aren’t too talky, that try to do the stuff that bigger budget movies do, but find a clever way to do it on a small scale. What’s so inspiring about Carpenter’s movies is that there isn’t a lot of chit-chat. There’s not a lot of exposition, or talk about their childhoods, or when they were ten, and you know it’s going to be repeated in the last scene as catharsis, people just react in the moment to what’s happening, and that was inspiring. Those early Carpenter films are almost set in real time as well, or in constrained time frames. I’m in my early forties, I waited a long time to make a film so I had movie blue balls, and there was a lot of stuff and movies I wanted to get in there, without explicitly referencing a particular shot or scene. I didn’t want it to be a movie of references or shots. I wanted it to be in the spirit.
    It is, Joe. It totally is.

    Image, More Plot Details And Cast For A Fantastic Fear Of Everything Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Jack is alone for Christmas. A former children’s author, now turned crime novelist, Jack spends his nights pacing about, entrenched in his latest script ‘Decades of Death’ with only his gruesome research into Victorian serial killers for company.

    A sensitive artist, who lacks even the simple courage to buy his own toilet paper, this research into all the most notorious hackers and poisoners of the late 19th century has made him paranoid and insomniac. Jack starts carrying a carving knife around with him due to ‘an irrational fear of being murdered’ and begins to suspect everybody he meets, from the waiter in the restaurant, to the newspaper vendor, to the friendly local ASBO hoodies. But when Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his ‘big break’ rapidly turns into his ‘big breakdown’, as Jack is forced to confront his worst fears; among them, love, laundry, and, serial killers.

    It’s because of his agent’s unprecedented request that he ‘look smart’ for the big meeting, that Jack’s career now rests precariously on his ability to tackle his irrational fear of launderettes. However, Jack soon has to deal with far more than the simple embarrassment of exposing his own soiled load in public. Harangued by the ghost of his ex-wife, and guided by the sage-like counsel of his psychotherapist (who once cured a girl of her phobia of open bananas), Jack makes his fateful ‘trip downtown’, taking him through the shadowy dystopia of a modern Noir London and onto the bright neon lights of the Lotus Laundromat, where his inability to operate a washing machine, (and the unfortunate fact that he’s still carrying a carving knife), triggers a series of unexpected events bringing him face to face with real danger, real crime, real fear, and even reality TV; involving an encounter with the most beautiful girl in London, a highly embarrassing personal injury, a bruising encounter with the strong arm of the law, and ultimately an unexpected fight for his life at the hands of a real serial killer…
