Contraband – Mark Wahlberg
This week we're starting to see some of 2012's movies hit DVD and Blu-ray, and still some of 2011's best (and want-to-be bests).

Contraband – Mark Wahlberg
Oh, foot-in-mouth disease.  It’s a fascinating affliction that seems to haunt a good number of celebrities, who, due to a near-constant worship in the media, begin to feel as if they have all the answers to the world’s problems, and have no qualms about letting the rest of us know about it.  Case in point: Mark Wahlberg, who recently all but announced that the people on board the...

Kate Beckinsale is Underworld's Selene
If you haven't watched Mark Wahlberg in the trailer for David O. Russell's film The Fighter you should. He plays a boxer and is a lean mean fighting machine. With that being said, the actor has another project on the horizon according to Latino Review called Contraband. Yeah, it makes us think of that awesome Velvet Revolver album too, but...
