Kenneth Branagh interview: Jack Ryan, In the Bleak Midwinter

  • Den of Geek
Interview Simon Brew 22 Jan 2014 - 05:47

We catch up with Kenneth Branagh to chat Jack Ryan, In The Bleak Midwinter and paying Joan Collins in postal orders.

It's a very quiet, calm, polite and considered Kenneth Branagh we meet in the midst of a posh hotel in London. Outside the door of the allotted room there's a buzz of activity. Behind it? There's Branagh, hours away from the premiere of his latest movie, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, enjoying the simple pleasure of a cup of tea. Which is when we hit him with our bombshell...

I fear somebody didn't give you the handover notes when doing a Jack Ryan movie and playing a Russian character. That you either have to approach it by getting in Sean Connery, and not bother with the accent at all, or you have to get in someone like the late Richard Marner from 'Allo 'Allo.

Ticket or Skip It: The Five-Year Engagement and The Raven
Welcome to our new web series: Ticket or Skip It. Reporting from his room aboard the USS Echo, a small submarine conducting biological research in the Atlantic Ocean, comes reviewer Corey Wood, who has agreed to grace us on a weekly basis with an update of all the new films hitting cinemas around the world (which he gets to watch via satellite in a private screening room aboard this seafaring vessel). Watch as Corey loves up on The Raven while punching The Five-Year Engagement in the face.

About The Raven, Mr. Wood had this to say.

"I really enjoyed it. It is my favorite movie of 2012 so far."

The Five-Year Engagement brought the exact opposite reaction.

"This movie sucked. It was horrible. I was so disappointed, and baffled by how bad this film turned out to be."

Review: Retreat (DVD)

  • DailyDead
In Carl Tibbetts’ debut film as a writer and director, he paints a portrait of a modern couple thrown into the most primitive of situations. While vacationing in a remote island cottage they had come to some eight years prior, Martin (Cillian Murphy) and Kate (Thandie Newton) are confronted with the true horrors of humanity when Jack (Jamie Bell) arrives to disturb their peaceful getaway.

The film starts out quietly, as Martin and Kate are delivered to their destination by Doug (Jimmy Yuill), the owner of the cottage, and they go about “enjoying” themselves. There is so much tension in these early scenes between the couple that I wondered why they would isolate themselves further from the world in an attempt to heal their collective wounds.

A wounded soldier (Jamie Bell) is found on the beach one morning by Martin and brought back to the cabin against Kate’s wishes.
