This is 40 Review. Movie Has It's Moments

This is 40 Review By: MattInRC The funny but unnecessarily-long This is 40 has its moments, just not enough of them to recommend it. For a film starring the director's wife and kids and consisting of the same creative team that made 40-Year-Old Virgin, one would think the rom-com This is 40 would have everything it needed to tell the funniest personal love story in recent memory. Set up not as a sequel but a spinoff, This is 40 picks up several years after the events of Knocked Up , following the couple Pete ( Paul Rudd , I Love You, Man) and Debbie ( Leslie Mann , Last Man Standing) as they deal with the doldrums of marriage and family. Slowly, the couple has grown distant towards each other, as Pete has started his own record label, while Debbie runs an independent clothing store. Meanwhile, their two girls (Apatow's real-life daughters) are connected to the digital world, content to answer Facebook posts rather than speak to each other. But underneath the s

Early Concept Art From The Avengers

It might've ended up as one of the biggest hits of the year, but director Joss Whedon and company had some big decisions to make during the development of The Avengers . How should the new characters look? What about the massive battle in downtown New York? Now, thanks to some early concept art, we know how Marvel's magnum opus evolved. Several pieces of concept art generated by artist Andy Park have been released online, many of which were featured in the recent book The Art of Marvel's The Avengers , and they reveal some of the earliest designs for characters like Hawkeye and Agent Maria Hill. It's interesting to see the tweaks made to the classic comic looks compared to how it ended up on screen. Some of the cooler pics are the designs for Thanos in space and the alien attack on Manhattan, both of which look fairly similar to what made it into the finished product. Park has released dozens of images on his official website , which is well worth a lo

Guardians Of the Galaxy Casting News. Zachary Levi In The Lead To Play Star-Lord

Just before Hollywood shuts down for the holidays, Marvel Studios has narrowed its shortlist of actors to star in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," with Zachary Levi and Jim Sturgess still in contention to play team leader Peter Quill . Better known as Star-Lord , Quill is the son of a human mother and alien father. A charming troublemaker who serves as an interplanetary policeman, Quill leads a rag-tag group of superheroes ( Drax the Destroyer, a raccoon named Rocket and a sword-wielding woman named Gamora ) in an effort to protect the solar system from an evil alien race. The character isn't as well known as other Marvel superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America or Thor , but Quill is still a plum role for thesps looking to boost their international profile. Marvel reportedly made test deals with five potential leading men several weeks ago, though "Cloud Atlas" star Sturgess is the only one from that list to remain in contention. Lev

THE IMPOSSIBLE Review. Movie Does Event Justice

THE IMPOSSIBLE Review By: RAMA RAMA is back with another review. The criticism around this movie is targeted on the fact that it’s about a tourist family, rich folks having vacation and their vacation suddenly goes awry and people think THE IMPOSSIBLE  doesn't do enough to emphasize that the locals who serve these tourists were devastated by the natural tragedy too. I think it’s an unfair criticism and I’ll explain why.. Based on the true story of one family’s survival of the 2004 tsunami, THE IMPOSSIBLE stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor and is directed by J.A. Bayona (THE ORPHANAGE). Maria ( Naomi Watts ), Henry ( Ewan McGregor ) and their three sons begin their winter vacation in Thailand, looking forward to a few days in tropical paradise. But on the morning of December 26th, as the family relaxes around the pool after their Christmas festivities the night before, a terrifying roar rises up from the center of the earth. As Maria freezes in fear, a huge wall of

New Trailer For The Great Gatsby

The new trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby has splashed down in a riot of style and a little more substance on how his 3D interpretation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel will play out. The focus this time is firmly on Leonardo DiCaprio's mysterious millionaire, Jay Gatsby. Soundtracked again by Kanye and Jay-Z's 'No Church In The Wild', we see him speeding his banana yellow Duisenberg through New York, Tobey Maguire's wide-eyed Nick Carraway in tow, shaking hands, scratching backs and pulling off shady deals that keep him in shirts, champagne and spectacular parties. There's more of Meyer Wolfsheim, a shadowy figure inspired by real-life Jewish gangster Arnold Rothstein, played here by Bollywood great Amitabh Bachchan. And then there's Daisy Buchanan ( Carey Mulligan ) herself, Gatz's long lost love and his tragic flaw. Please Leave A Comment- Source- Empire

First Image From "The World's End"

To mark the end of principal photography and, we like to think, as a Christmas present to fans, Simon Pegg has tweeted the first official still from The World's End , his reunion with director Edgar Wright and Nick Frost . It's the story of an apocalyptic pub crawl (aren't they all?) and so seems singularly suited for today when, er, no apocalypse has actually occurred despite predictions. The film sees Pegg play a slacker who reunites a group of friends to finish the pub crawl they abandoned years ago. Unfortunately, they're interrupted by some sort of large-scale event marking the end of days. Which is even more of a downer than an ill-timed chunder in your evening plans. This still shows Pegg's slightly Goth look, which couldn't be more of a contrast to Hot Fuzz's clean-cut Nick Angel. He's surrounded by the rest of the gang - Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, Eddie Marsan and Paddy Considine. We are, naturally, looking forward to seeing this fin

Let Fury Have The Hour DVD Review By: MattInRC

Let Fury Have The Hour DVD Review By: MattInRC Let Fury Have the Hour is self-congratulatory and one-sided, existing more to waste our time than to educate us. Antonino D'Ambrosio's Let Fury Have the Hour tries to fashion itself as a moving documentary against right-wing politics by featuring musicians and artists who've thrived during the conservative movement of the past 30 years. Instead, the film does more to expose his overly-liberal views, cheapening the final product and making us wonder if he realizes just how poorly put-together his film looks and feels. Featuring acts like Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) and rapper Chuck D, as well as variety of lesser known social activists, there's nothing new or inventive about Fury. It's filled with random (and manipulated) stock footage, looking no better than an MSNBC true-crime documentary that employs the same tired resources. If D'Ambrosio's message is that governments try to sway pe

This Is The End Trailer Starring Rogen, Franco, Hill, McBride Robinson & Baruchel

According to the Mayan calendar, the world is supposed to end on Dec. 21. If that happens, audiences won't get to see " This Is The End ," which is too bad since it looks really, really funny. Watch the very R-rated " This Is The End " trailer below, with a special introduction from Rogen and Franco . Some backstory: Previously called " Jay & Seth Vs. The Apocalypse " and " The End of the World ," " This Is The End " started as a short film starring Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel as versions of themselves dealing with the end of time. " This Is The End " expands on that premise, making Rogen, Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, James Franco and Danny McBride survivors of the apocalypse, which strikes during a Hollywood party at Franco's place. (Sorry, Michael Cera and Jason Segel , both mentioned as fatalities in the clip.) More deaths likely follow, and judging from the very R-rated trailer above, they wi

New Iron Man 3 Image. Tony Is Beat Up

If there's one thing the world can take from Iron Man 3 's trailers and stills so far, it's that our man Tony Stark doesn't have the best time of it after the events of The Avengers . He may have got the girl now, but the top of Stark tower is in ruins and now his Californian pile has been totally Lethal Weapon 2-ed by Ben Kingsley's The Mandarin. Then there are the shots of everyone's favorite genius billionaire playboy philanthropist in a seriously duffed up suit. IRON MAN 3 Trailer Is Here- A guessing man would presume this is after Tony's been blasted into the water and before he takes off his armour and carries it on a sled through the snow. But that's what a guessing man would say. Non guessing men (or women, for that matter) will have to wait until further details come to light. Please Leave A Comment- Source- Empire
