Last Vegas Review. Here Is Why You Should See It

Last Vegas Review  By: MattInRC
Last Vegas is both agreeable but absolutely forgettable. Here's why you should see it anyways.

There comes that day in everyone's life when you're dealt the final card, transitioning you from the vivacious youth of early life, past adulthood, and into the realm of 'senior.' The seriocomedy Last Vegas isn't here to elaborate on why it happens, more on what to do next. It's entirely propped up by the fine performances of four standout veterans - Michael Douglas, Robert DeNiro, Kevin Kline, and Morgan Freeman - and a surprising Mary Steenburgen, who don't say anything too deep, but keep the laughs coming like a Las Vegas leg show. The result is agreeable, but be prepared to remember very little about it afterwards.


Having survived a friendship lasting 50 years, our story fast-forwards to four men in the twilight of their lives. Archie (Freeman), a recent stroke victim, is living with his overly protective son, while Sam (

Free Birds Review. The Film Is Hilariously Entertaining

Free Birds Review By: MattInRC
The Turkey Throwdown Free Birds is hilariously entertaining, but it won't keep them off our Thanksgiving menu.

The Fall season is upon us, and with that comes what's supposed to be a higher class of film; these are billed as deep, psychological studies or historical dramas with serious looks by serious people. Thankfully, neither of these is contained in the animated comedy Free Birds, and we're better for it.


The turkey Reggie (voiced by Owen Wilson) is a shy but intelligent bird who doesn't understand why his fellow brethren succumb to the slaughter house with such ease. Reggie is an odd bird to be sure, rejected by his flock and forced to endure taunting by those who have no idea of their predestined fate. One day, the US President arrives to pardon a bird for the upcoming Thanksgiving, and his daughter demands the cute Reggie be spared. Soon, he's flying aboard Air Force One, enjoying the high life of pizza and cable television…

Defiance: Season One Blu-ray Review.

Defiance: Season One Blu-ray Review By: MattInRC
Here's why SyFy's Defiance won't be the next Battlestar Galactica.

As a person who grew up during the syndicated run of Star Trek: TOS, the theatrical run of Alien and Blade Runner, and the premiere run of Babylon 5, I'm used to Science Fiction that does more than kill hundreds of alien creatures ala Starship Troopers. I loved SyFy's Stargate Atlantis, but was saddened to see its untimely cancellation in 2009. What we didn't know at the time was that the network was going through major changes in its financial plan, happier to throw slop up on the wall than commit itself to quality television. And while Battlestar Galactica was a stunning success for the network, its accidental popularity never translated to a change in course for a network known more these days for Sharknado. The recent release of Defiance sadly demonstrates that SyFy's priorities are still unchanged.

JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA Review. Nothing Short Of Clever

JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA Review By: RAMA
Once again RAMA comes through with another great review. Make sure to follow him on Twitter and LIKE his Facebook Page.


It’s not as hysterical as I expected it to be but JACKASS PRESENTS: BAD GRANDPA has its great hilarious moments and I for one who’s a big fan of JACKASS franchise, am glad to see Johnny Knoxville’s character, Irving Zisman got himself a big screen treatment. Might as well make a movie about him, I mean it’s not like Knoxville gets bombarded with other movie offers.

86 year-old Irving Zisman is on a journey across America with the most unlikely companion, his 8 year-old Grandson Billy in “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.” This October, the signature Jackass character Irving Zisman (Johnny Knoxville) and Billy (Jackson Nicoll) will take movie audiences along for the most insane hidden camera road trip ever captured on camera.


Along the way Irving will introduce the young and impressionable Billy to people, places and situation…

The trailer for Drafthouse Films' THE VISITOR, the sci-fi/horror hybrid from 1979 that fuses elements of The Omen, Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, The Birds, Rosemary's Baby, The Fury and even Star Wars

The phantasmagoric 1979 sci-fi/horror hybrid, THE VISITOR, will celebrate the first-time theatrical release of the full-length cut of the film starting this weekend in a dozen cities, including Austin and Los Angeles, before rolling out to New York on November 8 and additional markets throughout November and the rest of the year.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Confirmed To Play Quicksilver

Despite the fact that everyone's been assuming that Aaron Taylor-Johnson was confirmed as Quicksilver for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, in reality, it has taken months for him – or his representatives, at least – to make a deal with Marvel. The ink is now dry, however, and he is confirmed for Joss Whedon’s superhero sequel.


The actor’s name first surfaced in June, when he was reported as Marvel’s first choice for the role back in the days when we didn’t even know what the film would be called beyond “Avengers 2”… According to The Wrap, the big sticking point for officially coming aboard was his promotional commitments to Godzilla. But diaries have now been consulted, schedules juggled and compromises made so that he can both hit the road on a press tour and suit up as Pietro Maximoff, brother to Wanda, AKA Scarlet Witch (you can get an introduction to them both right here).

While her own casting hasn’t been officially confirmed, word comes (via Samuel L. Jackson!) that Elizabeth Ol…

Entourage Movie Is A Go

After contentious negotiations had some of the actors snipping on the Internet, it looks like the Entourage movie may finally be ready to go.

“It’s a go. Love you all,” tweeted the show's creator and screenwriter, Doug Ellin, alongside a photo of the cast.

Sources are saying that the holdouts in the dealmaking process – namely Adrian Grenier, Jesse Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly -- are on the verge of signing on.

Studio sources say the deals are still not closed but all the camps are confident. Connolly's and Dillon’s deals are in the final stages, according to insiders.

The development comes on the heels of Ferrara's Monday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show to promote his new movie, Last Vegas, where the actor said the Entourage movie is "looking real good" and a deal for it "could be closed today." What is interesting is that the actor, who was the most contentious to placate, according to sources, was the one who had his deal closed firs…

Kate Beckinsale Could Join The Disappointments Room

In case you were wondering, The Disappointments Room is not the storage locker where Kate Beckinsale keeps the various drafts of the Whiteout screenplay. No, it’s actually a new supernatural thriller script she’s been offered and that I Am Number Four’sD.J. Caruso is down to direct.

The Disappointments Room would see Beckinsale as a mother who moves her family to a storied mansion in the country. While it has plenty of land and a nice historical design, she discovers it also comes with a gruesome history and starts to slowly go insane with visions of a dead girl. We always hate it when the real estate agents leave that off the listing.

Wentworth Miller, who has already proved his scripting chops with Stoker, wrote this one and the project is now set to be touted at the American Film Market. Beckinsale isn’t firmly aboard yet, but the producers will be hoping she hops aboard so they have another name to dangle in front of prospective investors and distributors.

Beckinsale, last seen in …

Yes A Sequel To Olympus Has Fallen Is Called London Has Fallen

Though we’re still slightly pinching ourselves to figure out if this is real, the word arrives from Screen International, not some random rumor site, so we’re going ahead: a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen is in development, Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman and more are on to return and it’ll be called London Has Fallen.

Yes, in the seemingly endless series of films where London Gets It In The Neck (damn these good tax incentives and excellent production facilities!), Nu Image is putting together a package deal for the new movie ready to tempt buyers at the American Film Market.

This time around, the plot will see a terrorist threat to the capital during the funeral of the Prime Minister. Naturally, Eckhart’s President Benjamin Asher, ace Secret Service officer Mike Banning (Butler) and Speaker Trumbull (Freeman) are all present and must now wade in to help. Angela Bassett and Radha Mitchell will show up again too and the producers are looking for someone to play an MI6 agen…

With BEYOND OUTRAGE, action cinema master Takeshi Kitano returns to the hard boiled characters, black comedy and unflinching violence of his crime masterpiece OUTRAGE. This time, a manipulative police crackdown on organized crime has ignited a tricky power struggle in the yakuza underworld.

The Sanno crime family has grown into a massive organization dominated by young executives whose new approach to running the family is causing frustration and pent-up resentment with the old-guard members. This vulnerability in the Sanno hierarchy is exactly what anti-gang detective Kataoka has been looking for, as the police force prepares a full-scale cra…

New Trailer For THE WOLF OF WALL STREET

Here is the newest trailer for THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. The film has a new opening date of Dec. 25th.


Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.”


Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.

Action Packed Trailer For 47 Ronin Has Arrived

47 Ronin, there’s a danger that we could’ve seen all the footage before. Still, this latest promo manages, thanks to effects shots getting finished, to dig up plenty of new moments.

Based, with plenty of mystical embellishment, on a true Japanese story, 47 Ronin finds a group of warriors in disarray.

After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honour to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Neo Kai (Reeves), a half-breed they once rejected, as they fight their way across a savage world of mythic beasts, shape-shifting witchcraft and wondrous terrors.

As this exiled, enslaved outcast becomes their most deadly weapon, he will transform into the hero who inspires the band of outnumbered rebels to seize eternity.

HBO'S True Detective Trailer Starring McConaughey & Harrelson

The show's premise has Louisiana 'tecs Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) scouring the state for a serial killer on the loose. And he's been on the loose for some time. The case relates to a strange, unsolved murder dating back to 1995 and it's been reopened, leaving the pair of lawman to follow up some long-cold leads.
