    Review: 'The Hangover Part II' Is A Lazy, Unpleasant & Unfunny Mess

    Unlike most of the summer movies, which seem to be thundering into theaters without any real anticipation beyond the cacophonous marketing hype, "The Hangover Part II" seems to be a film people are unreasonably excited for. The 2009 original, directed by Todd Phillips, has metamorphosed from simply being the biggest R-rated comedy of all time (and winner of a Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy Golden Globe) to being a movie that average filmgoers consider an instant "classic" of the genre and a staple of any fun-lover's DVD collection. (It's also the biggest selling comedy DVD of all time. Jesus.) The prospect of another movie, again sta...

    Columbia Pictures Snags Kathryn Bigelow's Seal Team 6 Film; Set For Fall 2012 Release

    No Mention Of Joel Edgerton Starring In The FilmSince late last year, director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal have been hard at work on black ops thriller, the details of which, at the time, were being kept under wraps but was rumored to be about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden. Those rumors turned out be true but when the Al Qaeda leader was suddenly killed a few weeks ago, it was reported that Boal a former investigative reporter, shifted his research and resources and was already rewriting with a section covering the 40 minute firefight that resulted in Bin Laden's death. Even more, Aussie actor Joel Edgerton was said to be a frontrunne...

    Thelma and Louise Turns 20

    I can't believe that it is 20 years since Thelma and Louise was released. We still have so much work to do. This is a movie that resonated with people in a profound way, it's a movie that people still think about fondly, yet sadly it is a movie that never effected any long term change for women in...

    New Bits, Pieces & Speculation On Tyler Perry's "I, Alex Cross" (More Casting, Shoot Dates...)

    Nothing terribly exciting... A casting sheet I've received for Tyler Perry's I Alex Cross project reveals that his character will be a father with 2 young children - a 7 year old boy and a 9 year old girl. Obviously, he has no wife in the movie, because, as the synopsis states, he'll be tracking dow...

    Exclusive: Harold Perrineau Talks About The State Of Black Films, "Lost" and "Film Festival: Rwanda"

    Calling stage and screen actor Harold Perrineau "driven" would be an understatement in my opinion. He first appeared on film in Wayne Wang's acclaimed drama Smoke opposite Forest Whitaker, a performance that earned him an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He's been non...

    "Riddick" Threequel Is A Go! Shooting Begins This Summer.

    "GRRRR.. D T the writer/director just landed in New York with the good news. We can start filming this summer. However, there is a catch... in order for us to make a true R rated film, I must work for scale upfront. Not unlike the "Find me Guilty" experience (which I wouldn't have changed for the wo...

    'Out Of Sight' and 'Minority Report' Scribe Scott Frank To Write 'Houdini' For Francis Lawrence

    Considering that, in real life, the profession seems to fall somewhere between "repellent" and "unbelievably douchey" (see: David Blaine, Criss Angel), it's somewhat surprising how many magic-based movies we have going around these days. The 2006 double bill of "The Prestige" and "The Illusionist" was the peak of the genre, but recent years have also brought the animated "Illusionist," Guy Pearce in the little-seen "Death Defying Acts" and, later in the summer, David Tennant as a vampire-fighting trickster in "Fright Night," while an adaptation of the seminal novel "Carter Beats The Devil" recently got a new lease on life. Even Pixar got in o...

    Stephen Dorff, Ray Winstone & Michelle Monaghan To Star In David Jacobson's 'Boot Tracks'

    Matt Dillon No Longer AttachedBeing cast as the lead in Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere" didn't immediately seem to give Stephen Dorff the big career boost that he might have hoped, mainly due to the film being a hollow, tedious experience. But the actor, who for some time had languished in DTV hell, is ...
