Netflix's Arcane Review 'Damn PERFECT'

New Clip From #JOYMOVIE

To celebrate Jennifer Lawrence's win of the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, 20th Century Fox has released a NEW clip from JOY . JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy's inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Édgar Ramírez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, Elisabeth Röhm and Dascha Polanco. Like David O. Russell's previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a stor

Movie Review: Joy

Joy to the world, J-Law has come. Review by Brandon Wolfe If anyone deserves to have living sainthood status bestowed upon them, it has to be Joy Mangano, the put-upon heroine and real-life inventor played by Jennifer Lawrence in David O. Russell’s Joy . Joy was told at a young age that she was special and destined for great things by her doting grandmother Mimi (Diane Ladd), but every other member of her family unconsciously conspires to keep Joy down. When we catch up to Joy in her adult life, she’s running herself ragged trying to meet the needs of her ramshackle brood, with absolutely no one stepping forward to assist, or even to offer a simple thank-you. Her mother Terry (Virginia Madsen) is a shut-in who sits in bed all day, refusing to tear herself away from her soap operas. Her father Rudy (Robert De Niro) is a cantankerous wreck, always on the lookout for a new relationship to replace whichever previous one he’s destroyed. Her half-sister Peggy (Elizabeth Rohm) makes no att

Pride & Prejudice & Zombies First Look

Until recently, the adaptation of Seth Graeme-Smith ’s Jane Austen-meets-horror genre-mash book Pride And Prejudice And Zombies spent its time lurking in development limbo. But thanks to finally locking in a script and a director ( Burr Steers ) and a rash of casting, it’s in production and Entertainment Weekly has grabbed a first look image. The picture shows the Bennett sisters Elizabeth ( Lily James ), Lydia ( Ellie Bamber ), Mary ( Millie Brady ), Jane ( Bella Heathcote ), and Kitty ( Suki Waterhouse ) tooled up and ready to fight the “Sorry Stricken”, AKA the risen dead, who cause trouble for the family. And they thought finding marriageable mates was hard enough… Still, they’re clearly all ready for combat, particularly our heroine, Elizabeth. “Even in the original story, Elizabeth’s a fighter and beyond her contemporaries in her ambitions and her ideas of women,” she tells EW. “She’s a badass warrior. She’s a ninja.” With Steers re-writing a script that has been through

American Hustle Review. Proves Hustling Can Be Sexy, Even If You Might Need A Shower Afterwards.

American Hustle Review By: MattInRC David O. Russell's American Hustle is smart, savvy, and an Oscar contender waiting for the call. With so many films this year about double-crosses, you might have become desensitized for them around Summer: Iron Man 3, 2 Guns, The Counselor and at least 5 more all explored the concept, each with mixed results. The problem with the genre is its propensity to get so convoluted that the story leaves audiences wondering if they had just been fleeced of their hard-earned cash. Luckily, best of the them - David O. Russell's American Hustle - comes out just in time to right the ship for Oscar season. When we first meet the 1978 con-artist Irving Rosenfeld ( Christian Bale ), he's engaged in a serious combo-over, readying himself for the biggest swindle of his life. Arrested by the FBI for fraud, he and faux-British sidekick Sydney ( Amy Adams ) are strong-armed into catching New Jersey politicians who are taking bribes.

The Fighter Movie Review By: Sandwichjohn

The Fighter Movie Review By: Sandwichjohn Let's start with how Amazing this film was, I was expecting great things from this movie but the performance by Christian Bale as Dickie Eklund was Oscar worthy for sure. This guys just seems to amaze me with his acting skills and how serious he takes his craft. Mark Wahlberg did a great job portraying "Irish" Micky Ward in the film. If you want to see a real life " Rocky " film then this one is for you. To me The Fighter rivals any Rocky films out there. And being based on the real life story of Ward even make it more interesting. All the issues he went threw to live this real life Cinderella story. There were a few spots in the film I had trouble with but nothing that would deter me from going to watch it again. Yes the film is based on a boxer and if your a boxing fan your going to love this film the action is great but what really carries this film is the acting and story. And yes this movie is also for peo

Mark Wahlberg Confirms Lead Role In Upcoming Film "Uncharted"

What Roles May Robert De Niro & Joe Pesci Play? On the subject of how the " Uncharted " movie is progressing, Wahlberg confirmed that David O. Russell has started writing. "David is one of the best writer/directors I've ever worked with," said Wahlberg. "The idea that he has is just insane. So hopefully we'll be making that movie this summer." News has slowly been surfacing about the forthcoming " Uncharted " movie, based on the hit PS3 franchise. The last confirmed information that we received was that David O. Russell , the director of movies like "Three Kings" and this year's "The Fighter," would be helming the project. The biggest question, however, has remained strictly in the realm of speculation: Who would be playing the hero, Nathan Drake? Recently there have been rumors that O. Russell was interested in casting Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro in the film, and Wahlberg confirmed those, as well.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune On It's Way To The Big Screen

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune On It's Way To The Big Screen David O. Russell has closed a deal to write and direct " Uncharted: Drake's Fortune ," an adaptation of the 2007 PlayStation 3 video game, for Columbia Pictures. Back in May, Russell first flirted with the project, but then moved on to develop a big-screen adaptation of " Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ." But his quest to direct the PS3 game adaptation pulled him back in, leaving "Zombies," for the moment, undead. Despite making his somewhat combative reputation with left-of-center indie films such as " Spanking the Monkey," "Flirting With Disaster" and "I Heart Huckabees," Russell appears to be making a serious move into bigger-budget mainstream movies. His next film, the boxing drama " The Fighter " from Paramount, comes out December. In the mold of epic adventure films like "Tomb Raider" and "Indiana Jones," the &
