Oscars 2013 Picks Are In. Do You Agree Or Disagree?

I want to thank MattInRC, April from Twilightish and of course Jorge from HiDefNinja in participating in this crazy idea Matt came up with. And I look forward to doing this again next year.

I have kept me answers very simple due to the fact I haven't seen 3/4 of the films nominated (That's why I have Matt).  And that is where Matt, April and Jorge have stepped up their game and include their explications to their picks.


So with out without further ado here are our picks for Sunday's Oscars.

Best Animated

SJF: Wreck-it-Ralph

Twilightish: Wreck-it-Ralph - While I don't believe that there were any EXCEPTIONAL movies in this category this year, I think this was the best out of the choices.

Matt: Frankenweenie – While my favorite animated film of the year in Hotel Transylvania wasn’t even nominated, Frankenweenie is a really great film about boys and their love for pets. There’s some great voice work here as well and the stop motion is like a breath of fresh 1960’s-era Rud…

SNITCH Review. The Rock's Best Performance

SNITCH Review  By: MattInRC 
The surprisingly deep Snitch features The Rock's best performance as...not The Rock.

Ready for a shocker? Dwayne Johnson is really good in Snitch, a powerful film about life in the drug trade. I know, it's Johnson (aka WWE's The Rock), but hear me out on this one.


Johnson (Fast Five) plays John Matthews, owner of a successful construction company, whose estranged son Jason (Rafi Gavron) is arrested after accepting a package filled with drugs. He's the victim of an undercover operation, hoping to nail small-time dealers who will in turn cough up other names for arrest. But Jason is neither willing to cooperate, nor turn in his drug-dealing friends, not because he's a hardened dealer, but because his morals won't allow him to do so. Matthews and his ex-wife Sylvie (Melina Kanakaredes) don't understand his defiance, but are more worried about his safety in prison, which forces Matthews into action. He uses his business connecti…

PEEPLES Teaser Trailer & Poster

Lionsgate's newest film, PEEPLES, will have you on the floor laughing! PEEPLES, produced by Tyler Perry, is a hilarious comedy where you learn that the outcome of impressing the parents isn't always what you expect it to be. Get ready for some surprises and interesting twists. PEEPLES, starring Kerry Washington with the hilarious Craig Robinson and David Alan Grier, is a must-see!


Sparks fly when Wade Walker (Craig Robinson) crashes the preppy Peeples annual reunion in the Hamptons to ask for their precious daughter Grace's (Kerry Washington) hand in marriage. Wade might be a fish-out-of-water among this seemingly perfect East Coast clan, but he’s not about to let himself flounder. Instead, in a wild weekend of fun, dysfunction and hilarious surprises, Wade is about to discover there’s room for all kinds of Peeples in this family, no matter their differences. Writer and first-time director Tina Gordon Chism (writer of DRUMLINE) joins forces with Tyler Perry to present a l…

Megan Fox Joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

For a while, it seemed as though the only news about the proposed new take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was about as welcome as someone pooping into their sewer living room. Fans were up in arms about proposed changes to the mythology, the writers kept changing and then it was delayed for yet more script work. Today, however, there was a much more surprising announcement: Megan Fox is on board.

“But!” we hear you cry, “good burghers of Empire! How can that be? Didn’t Fox and Bay have a huge falling out after Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen? With insults hurled back and forth?!” All of that is true, and please don’t call us burghers. It sounds rude.

Time, apparently, has healed the rift and Michael Bay broke the news on his website with a basic announcement. “TMNT: we are bringing Megan Fox back into the family!”

The Hollywood Reporter has tapped its sources and discovered that Bay and his former Transformers leading lady reconciled over several meetings, and that Turtles d…

Sir Ben Kingsley Iron Man 3 Poster.

And now, Empire has this exclusive Iron Man 3 poster, it's Mandarin's turn to look badass - something Sir Ben Kingsley does with ease.

Though his evil-sounding voice in the trailers below isn't oriental in the slightest, here The Mandarin's get-up and, well, sense of feng shui definitely has an Eastern vibe. Note the elaborately trimmed coat and liberal use of joss sticks, as well as the Chinese Dragons both on the walls and and standing proudly on the floor.

As for the camo gear and army boots, that's probably something to do with him being the leader of an international terrorist organisation and as such, believing in a certain amount of discipline. Then there's a Captain America-like combat helmet with holes in it, which is probably just there to look intimidating (and hold incense, naturally).

Ender’s Game New Image. What's For Lunch?

With the film now ploughing through the post-production process ready for an October release, sci-fi novel adaptation Ender’s Game creeps ever closer. Today a new image from the film, focusing on Asa Butterfield’sEnder Wiggin and Hailee Steinfeld’sPetra Arkanian has emerged online via fan site Enderwiggen.net.

Ender’s Game, drawn from Orson Scott Card’s novel, takes place in the near future, where Earth is under threat from a hostile, insectoid alien race called the Formics. After two devastating attacks, the world’s forces have rallied to defend against the next, setting up Battle Schools to pick and train the most gifted children in the art of war.

One of those, a shy but strategically talented lad named Ender, is plucked from school and quickly earns the respect of his peers and senior officers, including Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and wartime legend Major Rackham (Ben Kingsley). Of course, it’s not as simple as that – nothing ever is in wartime – and soon Ender must make sacri…

Bruce Lee Origin Story On The Way

QED International and banner Groundswell Productions are aiming to tell a Bruce Lee origin story with Birth of the Dragon, tapping scribes Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen Rivele to pen the tale.

Documentary Producer Claims Spike TV Stole Film Footage for 'I Am Bruce Lee' Dragon, according to QED and Groundswell, is inspired by the true-life duel between Lee and Wong Jack Man, who was China’s most famous kung fu Master. The no-rules fight took place in San Francisco in 1965, when the city’s Chinatown was controlled by Hong Kong triads.

The writers are using this true event as a jumping-off point for a wider-canvas action movie in which Wong and Lee team up to battle a band of Chinatown gangsters.

QED CEO Bill Block and Groundswell’s Michael London will produce the project along with Wilkinson and Rivele. Groundswell’s Kelly Mullen will exec produce.


"Stephen Rivele and Chris Wilkinson have taken a little-known chapter in the life of Bruce Lee and used it as a jumpin…

Josh Boone To Direct The Fault In Our Stars

Josh Boone will helm Fox 2000's adaptation of the best-selling novel for "Twilight" and "Safe Haven" producers.

Josh Boone has been hired to direct The Fault in Our Stars, Fox 2000’s adaptation of John Green’s acclaimed best-seller.

Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, the producers behind The Twilight Saga and this past weekend’s Nicholas Sparks translation Safe Haven, are producing the project, which has a script by (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber.

Whispers of Boone’s involvement surfaced over the weekend when a series of tweets connected Green, a big social networker, Boone and actress Shailene Woodley (The Descendants).

At this stage, however, sources say Woodley, who stars in Neustadter and Weber’s Now, has not been offered a role in the film (but she's in the running for the female lead as in Hailee Steinfeld).

Stars centers on a teenage girl stricken with terminal cancer who falls for a boy in …

Mark Hamill Talks Upcoming Star Wars Films

As the elements gather for Star Wars: Episode VII, talk (and a whole Bantha-drawn sled’s worth of speculation) has turned to which of the original cast might return. There have already been rumours that Harrison Ford is mulling a deal to reprise Han Solo, and Mark Hamill has gone on the record to say that there have been talks. Now the once – and possibly future – Luke Skywalker has had more to say, chatting with Entertainment Tonight.

“They're talking to us," Hamill says. "George Lucas wanted to know whether we'd be interested. He did say that if we didn't want to do it, they wouldn't cast another actor in our parts – they would write us out. … I can tell you right away that we haven't signed any contracts. We're in the stage where they want us to go in and meet with Michael Arndt, who is the writer, and Kathleen Kennedy, who is going to run Lucasfilm. Both have had meetings set that were postponed – on their end, not mine. They're more busy tha…

Christian Bale In Talks To Climb Everest

Universal Pictures and Working Title are teaming with Emmett/Furla Films on Everest, a mountain climbing disaster film that The Deep helmer Baltasar Kormakur will direct, with Christian Bale in talks to star. Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce with WT’s Liza Chasin, along with Evan Hayes. Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett and George Furla are in discussions to co-finance the film and join in a producing capacity as well. Justin Isbell wrote the most recent script draft.

Bale is in early talks to star in a tale based on the 1996 disastrous expedition to scale Mount Everest. Three different expeditions were hit by a sudden blinding storm and by the time it was all over, eight climbers died. The tale was first made famous by Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air, his first-person account of being among the lucky ones to make it back down the mountain. This film will be sourced from various books and interviews with survivors.

There is another studio film entitled Everest, t…
