THIN ICE Movie Review By: RAMA

THIN ICE Movie Review By: RAMA
Was RAMA caught out in the ice? Make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.

Great performances, average movie, that’s basically what you can take away from THIN ICE, which wants to be taken seriously as a Midwestern con flick with a bit of Coens’ Fargo feel to it but the way it reveals itself at the end is so abrupt and hasty, it jams itself down the audience’s throat and it doesn’t care whether or not the audience is fully prepared for it just yet. Interesting concept, a con film through the eyes of the marked man, but interesting at best is what this film would have to settle for…




THIN ICE (an Official Selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival) is a dark comedy about a small time insurance agent (Greg Kinnear) looking for a way to jump-start his business, reunite with his estranged wife (Lea Thompson) and escape the frigid Wisconsin weather. This self-proclaimed master of spin believes that salesmanship is all about selling a story — all he needs…

Kevin Macdonald’s "MARLEY" Trailer Is Here

Three little birds delivered the official U.S. trailer for Kevin Macdonald’s MARLEY via Apple.

Bob Marley's universal appeal, impact on music history and role as a social and political prophet is both unique and unparalleled. MARLEY is the definitive life story of the musician, revolutionary, and legend, from his early days to his rise to international superstardom. Made with the support of the Marley family, the film features rare footage, incredible performances and revelatory interviews with the people that knew him best.



From Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (One Day In September, The Last King of Scotland) comes the story of a towering figure of musical history, whose music and message has transcended different cultures, languages and creeds to resonate around the world today as powerfully as when he was alive.

MARLEY made its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival this month, to be followed by its North American premiere at SXSW. Magnolia Pictures will r…

1983's Valley Girl To Be Remade

Paramount has joined MGM’s effort to mount a musical film remake of 1983′s Valley Girl, the film that helped launch the career of Nicolas Cage. The remake will launch a new feature directing career, as the studios chose Clay Weiner over a number of well-established helmers who wanted the job. Who is Clay Weiner and how did this happen?

Weiner is a prolific commercials director — he helmed the Super Bowl spot for Time Warner Cable with Ricky Gervais and Mary Louise Parker — but his only real credit is the Nickelodeon film Fred: The Movie. He was determined to win the Valley Girl job, and his reps were able to include him among a bunch of helmers who met with studio executives before the holiday. Weiner was the only one who spent the two-week holiday break putting together a three-minute demo reel, paid for out of his own pocket, that featured choreographed dance routines set to a mash-up of the 1980s tunes that will be sung in the film. He demonstrated the spirit, design, costuming and …

THIS MEANS WAR Movie Review By: RAMA

THIS MEANS WAR Movie Review By: RAMA
Did RAMA enjoy this action romantic comedy? Make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.


Finally! A Valentine’s season movie that guys, who don’t care much for mushy lovey-duvey things, can also enjoy! THIS MEANS WAR is a blast! Chris Pine and Tom Hardy provide the action, and America’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon provides the rom-com, with funnygirl Chelsea Handler who gets A+ in my book for being a great comic relief. Nice comeback by director McG who disappointed us back in 2009 with Terminator Salvation..


In the film, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy portray the world’s deadliest CIA operatives, as well as inseparable partners and best friends… until they fall for the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). Having once helped bring down entire enemy nations, they are now employing their incomparable skills and an endless array of high-tech gadgetry against their greatest nemesis ever – each other.


If you’ve come to get purely entertained, nothing more, noth…

We Have Your Access To See PROJECT X In Sacramento

In Theaters March 2

We have your access to see PROJECT X. Warner Bros. has provide me with Exclusive passes for the fans to get access to the screening in Sacramento,Ca. Please

Say Hello To The New Zorro

Last April, rumours began to spread that 20th Century Fox had its eye on an ambitious new take on the Zorro legend, with post-apocalyptic version Zorro Reborn bubbling away in development. Now it’s closer to reality, with Gael Garcia Bernal anointed to take over the trademark sword-swishing duties.

Since it’s set in The World Of Tomorrow, it’ll be a change from the usual Californian / Mexican setting, though the ruined world concept does suggest a lot of desert will still be involved. Bernal’s Zorro will this time be a masked vigilante out for revenge.

Against who? That is still shrouded – or perhaps that should be cloaked, given the character – in mystery. What we do know is that Glenn Gers has taken a pass at the script originally written by Harker scribes Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy.

But though pre-vis specialist and spellcheck nemesis Rpin Suwannath was originally touted as the new film’s director, the chair is currently vacant.

Zorro has been a success for Sony in the past wi…

Katie Cassidy Cast In CW's Green Arrow

Gossip Girl, Melrose Place and Supernatural alumna Katie Cassidy is back at the CW as the female lead in the network’s pilot Arrow. The Warner Bros TV-produced project, a modern retelling of the story of DC Comics character Green Arrow, stars Stephen Amell as the vigilante superhero who fights crime using archery, martial arts and technology under his secret identity as Oliver Queen, a wealthy playboy and billionaire industrialist-turned-outspoken politician in Star City.

Cassidy will play Laurel, a young legal clinic attorney who shares a romantic past with Oliver. (In the comics, the character, Dinah “Laurel” Lance, has a superhero alter ego, Black Canary.) In Arrow, Cassidy joins Amell and Susanna Thompson, who was cast yesterday as Oliver’s mother, Moira Queen. David Nutter is directing the pilot, written/executive produced by Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim.

THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY Movie Review By: RAMA

THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY Movie Review By: RAMA
What did RAMA think of THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY. Make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.


I love this movie! Fantastical, flawless, fun family film, wow, that’s a lot of Fs, but seriously it’s great to have Studio Ghibli back with their latest adaptation, since I wasn’t completely taken by Ponyo.
I think the American voice cast were great, I’m curious to know what may or may not have gotten lost in the translation and the adaptation though, since I’ve never read the children book series that it’s based on. The animation is all that you’d expect from Ghibli, I appreciate how they stay true to their style, they don’t need to go 3D CG just to blow us away. Traditional animation with a compelling story and heartwarming themes, that’s what THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY promises and delivers..


Residing quietly beneath the floorboards are little people who live undetected in a secret world to be discovered, where
the smallest may sta…

22-year-old Aura (Dunham) returns home to her artist mother’s TriBeCa loft with the following: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her Youtube page, a boyfriend who’s left her to find himself at Burning Man, a dying hamster, and her tail between her legs. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, the restaurant down the block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner. Surrounded on all sides by what she could become, Aura just wants someone to tell her who she is.

Twisted Metal Film In The Works

Sony Pictures has made a preemptive 7-figure deal for Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance co-director Brian Taylor to write and direct a live action adaptation of the iconic video game Twisted Metal. Ghost Rider’s Avi and Ari Arad are producing the adaptation of the game, which has been published in various configurations by Sony Computer and is one of the biggest selling video games. The newest version of the game was just released today for PlayStation 3. Avi Arad, of course, has been a producer of Sony’s Spider-Man films since the beginning, including the upcoming 3D The Amazing Spider-Man. All this action occurs as Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance opens this weekend, with Nicolas Cage reprising the title role and Idris Elba also starring.

Like the game, the film will revolve around an underground event that pits a number of combatants in a fight to the death. They are outfitted in armored weaponized cars that are pimped out with heavy weaponry that includes missiles and machine guns.…

Fast 6 To Drive Into Theaters In May 2013

Following the glorious tosh that was Fast 5 , talk was of the next two instalments shooting back-to-back. Sadly, Dwayne Johnson has just told MTV that he doesn't think that's still the plan. But it doesn't matter: Fast 6 will still go before the cameras in May.

"We were going to try shooting them together," confirms his Rockness. "It would make sense while we have the same crew and everybody in one place. But I think we're dealing with some weather issues, so from what I know we're going to shoot Fast 6 first, and then worry about Fast 7 a little later."
Weather issues? That would be the fault of our unpredictable European climate. "We're going to be in the UK and we're going to be in Germany," Dwayne believes, although he doesn't say if both those locations or part of 6, or whether it's one each for 6 and 7.

What this does make clear is that Johnson is in for the long haul as US marshal and the planet's best hunter …

INTRUDERS Trailer Is Here

View the official trailer for the US release of INTRUDERS! Check out the exclusive trailer premiere on IMDb:

The film is Directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 WEEKS LATER, INTACT) Starring Clive Owen, Carice Van Houten, Pilar López De AyalaDaniel Brühl Kerry Fox and Héctor Alterio.

Though no one can see him, Hollow Face lurks in the corners, desperately desiring love but only knowing how to spread fear and hate. He creeps into the life of John Farrow (Clive Owen) after Farrow’s beloved 13-year-old daughter Mia (Ella Purnell) is assaulted in their home. The line between the real and the imaginary blurs as fissures start to open within the family unit. It seems that no security measure can keep Hollow Face out.

From visionary filmmaker JUAN CARLOS FRESNADILLO (28 Weeks Later, the upcoming Highlander reboot), INTRUDERS is the chilling story of two children living in different countries, each visited nightly by a faceless being who wants to take possession of them.
