The Gambler Review: Wahlberg Elevates His Game, But Does the Script?

Does The Gambler achieve Oscar glory, or it does it make the 2014 'great acting/poor scripts' trash pile?
Review by Matt Cummings
Unfortunately, The Gambler's stellar performances are lost on a script that doesn't seem to know how the real world works.

For trust funder Jim Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), life is a pretty dull affair. A well-reviewed writer who gained all of $7,000 for his work, the only excitement Jim can find is through illegal gambling, and playing with big sums of money. He's soon up beyond his ears in debt, and his bankroller Mr. Lee refuses to play along. It's here that Jim enlists a collection of ruthless loan sharks including the gangster Neville (Michael Kenneth Williams) and the scary bald guy Frank (a mostly unclothed John Goodman). But it's the love from one of Jim's students (Brie Larson) who represents the last chance he has to bring himself back from the brink of a perceived failed life, while another promises to be a dange…

Images From "Everest" Starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Continuing his recent trend of looking unrecognisable from one film to the next, this new still from Everest reveals a more hirsute Jake Gyllenhaal than we're used to. Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke and John Hawkes also star in the moutaineering disaster drama, directed by Baltasar Kormákur (Contraband, 2 Guns).


The story is of the 1996 events, made famous by Jon Krakauer's book Into Thin Air (already filmed as a TV movie with Christopher McDonald as Krakauer), in which three separate Everest expeditions ran into tragic difficulty in a sudden storm. Eight climbers died. This version of what happened is drawn from more sources than just Krakauer however, including other books and new interviews with the survivors. The screenplay is by William Nicholson (Gladiator, Les Misérables) and newcomer Justin Isbell.

Download @LanaDelRey New Song From The Film "BIG EYES" For Free

In honor of BIG EYES opening wide on Christmas Day, Yahoo! Music announced the title song by Lana Del Rey is being made available for free download starting today.

People can download the free song "Big Eyes" by Lana Del Rey on Google Play here.


From the whimsical mind of director Tim Burton, BIG EYES tells the outrageous true story of one of the most epic art frauds in history. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, painter Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz) had reached success beyond belief, revolutionizing the commercialization of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The bizarre and shocking truth would eventually be discovered though: Walter's works were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife Margaret (Amy Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a colossal lie that had fooled the entire world. A tale too incredible to be fiction, BIG EYES centers on Margaret's awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings…

#SheNeverLeft



When a group of orphaned children are forced to move from their home in London, caretakers Eve (Phoebe Fox) and Jean (Helen McCrory) bring everyone to the desolate and eerie British countryside. 40 years after Arthur Kipps (played by Daniel Radcliffe in the first film, The Woman in Black) left, this supernatural horror film introduces this new group to the now abandoned Eel Marsh House; an odd but seemingly safe location. It isn’t long before Eve starts to sense that this house is not what it appears to be as th…

New Trailer For Disney’s MCFARLAND, USA

Here is the brand new trailer for Disney’s MCFARLAND, USA, featuring music by Latin music star Juanes.



Based on the 1987 true story, “McFarland, USA” follows novice runners from McFarland, an economically challenged town in California’s farm-rich Central Valley, as they give their all to build a cross-country team under the direction of Coach Jim White (Kevin Costner), a newcomer to their predominantly Latino high school. Coach White and the McFarland students have a lot to learn about each other but when White starts to realize the boys’ exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Soon something beyond their physical gifts becomes apparent—the power of family relationships, their unwavering commitment to one another and their incredible work ethic. With grit and determination, the unlikely band of runners eventually overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finall…

Into the Woods Review. Pretty Faithful Adaptation Of Sondheim's Beloved Play

Pretty faithful adaptation of Sondheim's beloved play

With a child-molesting wolf, a baby-stealing witch and an adulterous wife, this fairy tale is definitely not your normal Disney fare. Into the Woods has long been a fan favorite on Broadway, but finding its way to the big screen hasn't been quick or easy by any means. While there are some changes to the original masterpiece, Into the Woods is a pretty faithful adaptation of Sondheim's beloved play that translates well to the big screen.



I'll admit, outside of Disney movies, I'm not a musical-seeking kind of girl. In fact, I mostly avoid them at all costs. All that singing really gets on my nerves. On the stage, it’s a different thing, but mostly, the big-screen version can't capture the magic of a live performance, even with its fancy special effects. But knowing that this would be a mash-up of Grimm tales, which I love, and had a stellar cast, Into the Woods looked intriguing as a movie. Combining the stori…

The Pee Wee Herman Film Headed To Netflix

Like the director, plot details remain under wraps, though Paul Reubens has said shooting starts in 2015

What should you get a Pee-Wee Herman fan for the holidays? How about a subscription to Netflix, which is nearing a deal to distribute the Pee-Wee Herman movie that Judd Apatow is producing, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

While a Netflix spokesperson cautioned that there’s no deal in place yet, an individual close to the project told TheWrap “it moved to Netflix a gazillion months ago.”

The Pee Wee Herman movie had previously been set up at Universal, though a studio spokesperson told TheWrap the “Pee-Wee project is no longer with Universal.”

The one-and-only Paul Reubens will return to reprise his beloved Pee-Wee character, and he also co-wrote the script with comedian Paul Rust. Apatow will produce via his Apatow Productions banner.
Like the film’s director, plot details remain unknown, though Reubens has said that there is a filmmaker in place …

Mike Colter To Play Luke Cage

Charlie Cox is Daredevil and Krysten Ritter is Jessica Jones. Now we have the third of the four members of Marvel / Netflix's Defenders crossover event series: Mike Colter will star as Luke Cage, sometimes known as Power Man. You call him names and he sits and grins, 'cause everyone else is just a sucker to him.

This is breakout role for Colter, who's been plugging away in movies and TV for a good decade. On the small screen he's been in the usual suspects like ER, the various Law & Orders, American Horror Story and The Good Wife. In the cinema you might have caught him in Million Dollar Baby, Salt, Men In Black 3 or Zero Dark Thirty. This year he's been Jameson Locke in the X-Box Live series Halo: Nightfall. He's about to blow up rather bigger.

Cage will first appear in A.K.A. Jessica Jones before his own series airs. "Viewers will meet him and experience why he is such an important superhero in the Marvel mythos," says Marvel's head of tele…

Justin Lin Set to Direct Star Trek 3

The Fast & Furious director has been chosen to replace Roberto Orci. The story of Star Trek 3's production problems have unfortunately overtaken the actual shooting and planned release of the film, leaving Trekkers to worry about the future for this divisive reboot franchise. One big question was answered on Monday, as Paramount announced that Justin Lin was signed to direct, taking over the center chair for the departed Roberto Orci (whose stays on to produce).

The question of whether Lin was the right choice certainly is a valuable one. Known for directing four of the successful Fast & Furious films, Lin brings a fast-car style of excitement that Star Trek has never had. He's a proven commodity on big budget productions, essentially breathing in new life to a franchise that had honestly gotten stale - you can only show so many hot women, fast cars, and actors who can't act before audiences ask for more.

Perhaps it's time for Star Trek to return to its action…

Studio Movie Grill Review: Moviegoing Redefined

This week's opening of Studio Movie Grill adds a new player to the board, but suffers from opening night jitters.
Review by Matt Cummings It doesn't happen too often when I get invited to merge my two favorite things to do in public - eating and watching movies - above anything other than soda and popcorn. This week's opening of Studio Movie Grill in Rocklin, CA gave me just such a chance, ushering in a new way to enjoy your favorite movie, even if the service suffered from opening day jitters. The Facility
When you drive up to theater, you're welcomed by two lit rectangular fountains, leading to the main doors. There's no standard glass service desk: you actually go into an open airy lobby where attendants with flat-screen monitors assist you in buying your ticket. There's also kiosks on each side for those who use online services to purchase tickets. Once you past the frosted glass here, it's a different ballgame: you're treated to a fully-stocke…
