Noah: Movie Review

Published by

noah-movie-review-7
Darren Aronofsky's Noah is finally opening in theaters. The film's based on one of the most popular and vital figures in the Bible. Aronofsky attempts to show the character as a flawed man struggling with his calling. It's a commendable effort, but somewhere along the line, Noah goes from unlikely hero to possible villain. The...

Thor: The Dark World: Movie Review

Published by

Thor The Dark World -1
Thor: The Dark World has big shoes to fill. It's following The Avengers and Iron Man 3, which were billion dollar successes. It also has to cater to an audience whose love for its villain rivals that of its hero. After Kenneth Branagh set the groundwork in 2011's Thor, director...

'Breaking Bad': Anthony Hopkins Calls It The Best Acting He's Ever Seen

Published by

Breaking Bad fifth season cast
Because we desperately, desperately needed an excuse to write about Breaking Bad again (leave us alone, we miss it), we’re reporting today on a story that is more or less in the gross “Movie Stars: They’re just like US!” department, as Anthony Hopkins has recently penned a letter to Bryan Cranston about how he binge-watched all five seasons of...

'Thor: The Dark World' New Trailer: Big Hammers And Bigger Mullets

Published by

thor the dark world
Aside from revealing a Thor and Loki team-up, the last teaser for Thor: The Dark World, didn’t feature much—as we noted at the time, it was basically some big and hammy narration from Anthony Hopkins, a lot of heavily CG’d environments, Natalie Portman looking at things in constant surprise, and Thor smashing stuff with a great big hammer. ...

'Red 2' Trailer: Bruce Willis Leads a Cast of Old People That Kill People

Published by

If we have any enthusiasm for this summer's Red 2, it's not because of the first film (which was passably entertaining), but because it's directed by Dean Parisot. If that name doesn't ring a bell, he was the director behind Galaxy Quest, which is one of the best films of the last fifteen years. Perhaps he has the magic powers to wake Bruce...

Hitchcock: Movie Review

Published by

hitchcock
The slippery slope of making a bio-pic about a well known public figure is two-fold: one, our image of that person is firmly etched in the mind, and second, finding out that great people and artists aren't saints is only worth it if the revelations are worthwhile. Though there's nothing wrong with taking liberties, the end result of  Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock is...

'Hitchcock' is Coming in November, 'The Great Gatsby' in May

Published by

The Great Gatsby, Hitchcock
There is something of a science to release dates. On top of knowing that there are certain times of the year when a big movie will do better or worse than other times, studios often pick dates because of past experiences.  For instance, Zack Snyder wants all of his pictures released on the same weekend for luck. Now we've got dates for Sacha Gervasi's Hithcock, and...

Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' Described As A Mad Max-Style Warrior

Published by

Noah
Darren Aronofsky isn't a director who likes to keep it simple. This is the guy who's most well-known for his mind-trip movies like Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain and Black Swan. So, when Paramount announced that his version of Noah would be a "close adaptation of the biblical story of...

New DVD Releases: The Rite, The Roommate, The Mechanic

Wow, it is a very weak week here in the DVD release land. You have your pick of Anthony Hopkins as a priest fighting the devil, Jason Statham in an action movie that isn't a Transporter or Crank sequel or Minka Kelly  having to fend off Leighton Meester. Not sure which movies those are? I don't blame you, I forgot they'd all been released too. These films are The...

Thor: Review

Published by

Thor Theatrical Trailer
Thor may be the trickiest of the big Marvel characters to adapt. Both a Norse God, and an extra-terrestrial being, Thor doesn't have the "normal person thrust into superpowers" hook - which is both good and bad. And to that end Thor is not really an origin tale, so much as a learning experience for the main character. There's a lot to do here, on top of director Kenneth Branagh putting a big...

Anthony Hopkins on Being Lazy, Westerns, and Thor

Thor - Anthony Hopkins
Sometimes an actor so dominates a group interview that it’s worth separating him out from the others. Sir Anthony Hopkins is a veteran performer whose stories of coming to Hollywood and his current attitudes toward working consumed a good chunk of the recent press conference for Thor. In his comments, he revealed a man who know longer feels the need to watch his...

Interview: Anthony Hopkins for You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

Last week I had the honor of being able to interview Sir Anthony Hopkins for his role as an older man who is going through a life-crisis and marries a young tart in Woody Allen's latest film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. It's days like these that make it all seem worth it. Hopkins, as I had been told beforehand, was quite charming and not only answered our...
