Published by

skeletontwins-1-23-14
This was probably one of the most straight-up-Sundance films from this years festival. It has a relatively simple story, that dissects the lives of two siblings who are trying to find a way to coop their past and comes with Sundance veteran's Mark and Jay Duplass as Executive Producers. Can't be more Sundance than that! With lovely performances by Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig, second time...

ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES
Though it's great to have the channel 4 news team back together again, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is likely to lightly disappoint those who've been salivating for more adventures with Will Ferrell's Ron Burgundy and the gang. Yes, there's plenty of funny, and it's easily one of the best comedy sequels ever. But when you're ranking those, it points out that most...

Ben Stiller in a still from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
Ben Stiller is unquestionably capable of making great art. From films like The Royal Tennenbaums to the more recent Greenberg, he's willing to try different things, be unlikeable, and work with great material. Unfortunately that doesn't always pay the bills so he's also the captain of the Meet the...

Step Brothers
Any excuse to get Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly together in a movie, even if just for a few minuets, is a good one. That being said, the two are going to share some screen time again. No, it won't be in Step Brothers 2 but Anchorman: The Legend Continues. Yes, it is a happy day indeed.

We don't hear the voices of stars Steve Carell, Al Pacino and Kristen Wiig - it's really a teaser, and we wouldn't be surprised if 90% of the footage was made specifically for this...

Kristen Wiig Says No to Bridesmaids 2

Published by

Bridesmaids: The Gang's All Here!
It's a tale as old as time: if a film makes a ton of money, they're going to try to make a sequel - regardless if the film needs it. Bridesmaids made almost $170 Million at the box office, and there have been rumors about a sequel. Star and co-writer Kristen Wiig shot that down for now when she spoke to E! Online and said they're not planning one. Perhaps she saw...

All Good Things: Ryan Gosling in 70's Attire
Well, they definitely took a risk on this film! Whether or not it worked out is another story. There are some extremely strong moments, an amazing supporting cast and a hell of a performance from the star of the film Ryan Gosling, the film didn't quite add up the way it needed to in order for the audience to feel any real of sense of satisfaction. My guess is Blue Valentine will be...
