Fan boys of the world, are you sitting comfortably? Brace yourself, as the latest rumour to surface from Hollywood is that Bradley Cooper is in line to play Indiana Jones.
Before you go into meltdown however it’s worth looking at the positives as highlighted by Latino Review’s Kellvin Chavez.
“Don’t think of it as a reboot but just recasting the same way the James Bond (Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig) movies have been doing for the better part of five decades.”
A fair point considering that it’s no secret that Indiana Jones was heavily influenced by 007. Still, it’s a very risky prospect and lightning often doesn’t strike twice.

There are some film that are instantly quotable. You can sit with a friend and recite lines all day long and laugh more than you did when you originally heard them. If you haven’t seen the film, such behaviour can be irritating and if that film happens to be Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, then the blame lies at your door. Nine years later and Ron (Will Ferrell) is back with his idiotic, sexist and unashamedly racist news team for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Belated sequels to popular films tend not to end well so do the Channel 4 News team still have the killer quips and great hair?
The 70′s are over and the 80′s has Ron and his now wife Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) working as co-anchors for a New York news station. It’s not all rosy however as their boss and legendary anchor Mack Harken (Harrison Ford) decides to promote Veronica while firing Ron for…well, you can imagine. Depressed and suicidal, Ron is offered a job for a revolutionary 24 hour news channel and decides its time to get the band back together. With Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) a successful pussy photographer, Champ Kind (David Koechner) the owner of a fried “chicken” franchise and Brick’s Tamland (Steve Carell) dead; the gang decide to put faith in their old friend and leave their new lives (and death) behind. However it’s a different world and time the boys are returning to, with Ron struggling to come to terms with having a black female boss (Meagan Good) and his wife’s new, potentially pyschic, lover (Greg Kinnear).

Moviescramble takes a look at the 1974 Francis Ford Coppola surveillance drama The Conversation.
Sandwiched in between two classics of modern cinema is not a place that any movie would want to be. Alas that is the place that The Conversation finds itself. Released two years after The Godfather and in the same year as The Godfather part 2, the conversation was understandably not afforded the same attention as its illustrious brothers. This a real pity as The Conversation has stood the test of time and in some circles it has become as regarded as Mr Coppola’s other works. In some circles this film is more highly regarded. It has certainly stood the test of time critically with an 8.0 rating on IMDB. Continue reading “The Conversation” »
