Ritchie very complimentary about mother Madonna

Recommended Posts

Anyone who follows the news or what's trending.. did this get any press aside from the original article it featured in? Interesting isn't it. ever since guy played those dirty games while Madonna was on tour, Madonna has gotten a horrible reputation as a mother. I even saw her mentioned in a video with millions of views, along with woody allen and other celebs who lost custody for being drug users. It's infuriating because we know she's the opposite.

I've never seen any of that. That being said, I don't go looking for it, or spend much time on it even if I happen to come across it.

Sometimes I think some folks spend a little too much time on the negative press. Yeah, it's out there, but that also doesn't mean it's what every outlet is saying.

Plus, Madonna's been coping shit since the very beginning. It ebbs and flows. Always will.

The movie is the perfect example of all hype, no substance. And most reviews exactly point that out. The CGI is so overwhelming and nonsensical that the only reason it serves is to distract from the bad script.

Thinking about how many children you could feed with $175m. But they pumped it into the umpteenth monodimensional "laddish" characterization from Ritchie. Probably $100m alone spent on CGI. You watch Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels plus Snatch and you have watched his entire filmography basically. I was mildly excited by the first Sherlock but that was probably more due to the fact Robert Downey Jr was in it.

As 'Guardians 2' Repeats at #1 'King Arthur' & 'Snatched' Will Duel Over Mother's Day Weekend
by Brad Brevet

 

 May 11, 2017


FRIDAY AM UPDATE: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword brought in $1.15 million from Thursday previews last night in ~3,200 theaters. To continue our comparison to WB's The Legend of Tarzan from our preview below, that film brought in $2.55 million on Thursday night ahead of its $38.5 million opening.

As for Snatched, it brought in $675,000 from 2,625 locations.

WEEKEND PREVIEW: The 2017 summer movie season kicked off last weekend with the strong opening for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which enters its sophomore session this weekend and will once again find itself atop the box office as the week's new wide releases—King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Snatched—aren't looking to offer much competition. Question is, with the Guardians sequel outperforming the opening weekend of the original by more than 55% (the best opening performance for a first sequel among all Marvel Cinematic Universe films), will the second weekend for the galactic superheroes also outperform the norm?

HA!

 

Looking at a second place finish is Warner Bros.'s release of King Arthur as director Guy Ritchie attempts to inject his particular style of filmmaking into the story of the folklore hero in the same way he did Sherlock Holmes back in 2009. The immediate problem we see is King Arthur star Charlie Hunnam does not have the same box office draw as Sherlock star Robert Downey Jr. who was coming off Iron Man and Tropic Thunder ahead of Sherlock's release. As for Hunnam, his recent theatrical output, acknowledging his seven season stint on television in "Sons of Anarchy", includes Pacific Rim and The Lost City of Z, the latter of which, despite it's solid critical reviews, doesn't exactly have the demographic appeal necessary to drive King Arthur to the top of the domestic box office and given the $175 million production budget for Arthur, that doesn't bode well for this weekend's opening.

Set to debut in 3,702 theaters, industry expectations for Arthur are $23-25 million and based on what we're looking at it's tough to disagree. A look at titles such as Pacific Rim, The Legend of Tarzan and Ritchie's last film, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., show Arthur trailing all three based on IMDb page view performance at the same point in the release cycle.

Just as concerning, while we do see a few peaks at moments when new trailers dropped for King Arthur, deep valleys shortly followed as online audience interest didn't remain, or significantly trend, upwards. In fact, while Arthur reached #53 on IMDbPro's MOVIEMeter following the trailer drop at the end of February and #51 following another trailer in early April, it's status dropped over the weeks to follow. Compared to something like Tarzan, which only saw one such trailer peak in the two-plus months leading up to release and yet still saw a steady increase prior to its opening weekend. And while Tarzan, a $180 million production, didn't exactly dominate domestically, it still pulled off a $38.5 million opening, which Arthur doesn't look like it will come close to touching.

Therefore, it will be the international market where Arthur will be looking for some love as it debuts in ~57% of the overall international marketplace this weekend including China where Tarzan, just to continue the comparison, delivered over $46 million.

Why did Jacqui use a picture where they both look miserable and bored to promote the film and say what an honour it was to witness the epic journey of making it ?

Maybe that's the best shot she had. In all the others they looked more miserable. :lmao:

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
Director: Guy Ritchie
Cast: Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana
Rating: 1.5/5

Does an army of clumsy Stormtroopers stand a chance against Thor, a Warg, Legolas and Bruce Lee? As far as King Arthur: Legend of the Sword goes, we’d say director Guy Ritchie will definitely bet on the Stormtroopers.

His latest retelling of one of the best known legends -- of King Arthur -- may be a brave step considering many filmmakers have already had a go at it. But, Ritchie’s is definitely not a good one.

The film just doesn’t wash. The plot defies logic, performances are below par and several bad directorial decisions sink the period drama so deep that even a seething Jude Law can’t lift it up.

Don’t be fooled by the glossy leather pants and the goatees because you are being taken back to the fifth century. England is gloomier and darker than we’ve ever seen it or maybe it is just shoddy 3D.

Once you are in that colourless city, you meet King Uther (Eric Bana) and Vortigern (Jude Law). Law is Prince Harry to Bana’s Prince William but soon turns Scar to his Mufasa. He murders his brother and usurps the throne. Uther’s son Simba flees the clutches of his evil uncle and is found by Timon and some Pumbaas, who are prostitutes.

Simba grows up to be Arthur, who grows up to be Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hardy’s love child we otherwise call Charlie Hunnam.

Arthur goes about his life. Gets bullied as a kid, learns martial arts from a Chinese guy in the neighbourhood and saves the prostitutes from violent clients who refuse to pay.

Then, a prophecy raises its head and his father’s magical sword, the mighty Excalibur, resurfaces, jammed in a large boulder. Vortigen, eager to find and kill the true heir who will extract the sword, gets all men from the kingdom to try their luck. Arthur, obviously, is the one to dislodge it. He now has to keep the evil Vortigen away from the sword and also learn to use it.

I could give you a link to download the PDF version of King Arthur’s legend instead of wasting 250 words on explaining the plot but then it wouldn’t mention CGI eagles, elephants and anacondas or swords that turn their master’s eyes blue and slow down time.

With King Arthur, Ritchie seems to be only flexing his style-muscles we have already seen, several times over. There are the slow-motion fight scenes that we have seen in Sherlock Holmes and the snappy dialogues and all too familiar confused, directionless storytelling.

But some of these tricks were there for a reason -- like slow motion in Sherlock Holmes to illustrate the goings-on in the head of the famous 221b Baker Street resident -- in King Arthur, they are there only to remind the viewer that Ritchie still hasn’t forgotten the technique.

The fact that he is doing it in a medieval England makes matters worse.

The few things that aren’t totally frustrating about the film are the actors. Charlie Hunnam is charming and confident as the young king. He is bestowed with a great power and it shows in his moments of self-doubt. He is also witty and can deliver a humorous line or two with as much ease as he lands some mighty punches on the villain.

Jude Law again shows how good he is at being bad. If anyone had a doubt about his dark side after The Young Pope, he casts them aside in this outing, playing the nefarious, jealous king who wouldn’t even blink before murdering his family.

Astrid Bergès-Frisbey plays the only female character to not get her throat slit in the movie. Perhaps that is why she finds mention second only to Charlie Hunnam in the opening credits.

She plays Mage, a woman with supernatural powers that allow her to control eagles and two-storey high snakes but still ends up getting kidnapped, conveniently, only to be saved by the hero. This, however, isn’t the only problem with the film’s all-over-the-place plot.

There is a Chinese man teaching kung fu to the English in the fifth century and is rewarded with a knighthood. Really?

Arthur can kill scores of men with a single swift movement of his sword but still decides it is better to run away? Mage can turn into a massive snake but doesn’t until the very last moment? And why does Hunnam have the millennial jock-style combed-back hair with trimmed sides if he is King Arthur?

And then there is David Beckham’s cameo. What in the world can explain that disaster?

You may think reviewers being unduly harsh and exaggerating in saying how bad his acting debut is but trust me, each and every word is true.

So if there is one reason to watch this film, it is Beckham. Yes, Beckham. Someday, you will tell your children you watched one of the biggest footballers of all times make a miserable fool of himself on the silver screen.

Nikki,  not sure if Billie knows Madonna that well but she was once married to Laurence Fox - who was in WE.  She even attended Madonna's birthday party with Laurence so would definitely have met her.  Photo of Madonna at her birthday party in that stunning grey dress and photo of Billie and Laurence at the same party.

guy ritchie made a joke again at madonna's expense. around 2h15min if you're interested. he also says he made the movie "because i needed the money". madonna making that joke is funny as shes self made. guy said that after the stupid madonna joke, forgetting madonna is the one who gives him all the money. it's dirty because harry styles and other people (one guy from pink floyd) are there.

What a prize idiot. Wouldn't you just love to slap the smile from his greedy, smug, pretentious, annoying, face?

Trying to get a cheap laugh from a gay "joke" on GN's show just proves what an idiot he is.

A shame they didn't show this picture of him dressed up as a muscle mary... could you imagine his face...

Totally convincing by the way :lmao:

The latent homo/bisexuality never fails to creep up behind all the laddish banter and macho talk

That "conversation" with Kristen Bell is cringeworthy to say the least

I know it's just a promotional thing but it's so beyond dire and dull 

 

It reminds me of that MTV featurette they did for Swept Away

Madonna: I have noticed there is a strange homosexual undertone between you and the crew of your films

You slapping yourselves on the back, kissing ...

Graham was not impressed with his "gay gym" joke and shut him down while being professional and keeping the conversation going.
