Transformers: Age of Extinction, the newest film from Michael Bay, looks like a pure slab of the director’s usual pyrotechnic  CGI-porn, with a bunch of orange and sweaty people in tight clothes running around amidst a series of cars and trucks that transform into walking, talking, and punching space-robots that now get to fight monstrous dinosaurs.  Which is...

Entourage: The Complete Series
Some context: in 2012, Doug Ellin, creator of the bro-mance fantasia that was the HBO TV series Entourage, had penned a script for a feature-film continuation of the series, in which Adrien Grenier starred as Vincent Chase, a dude who makes it big in Hollywood and takes his entourage (get it? That’s why the show’s called that!)...

Whew—it’s time to relax, folks, as our long national nightmare is over: we finally know the official title for the fourth Transformers film.  Heretofore, we’ve be forced to simply refer to the film as Transformers 4 and, geez, how terrible is that?  But now, we can finally refer to it by an official title.   Finally, there may be rest.

We’re starting to see some of the summer’s big releases hit home video this week, and Michael Bay’s latest opus is also now available. But Criterion has the best release of the week, while Shout Factory is releasing some gems. It’s a good but small week for home video.

One of the recent franchises that will seemingly never die is Michael Bay's Transformers. The Hasbro toy turned animated series in the 80s resurfaced in popularity within the past decade as the loud filmmaker brought them to life on the big screen with the help of computer graphics and some eye-bleeding 3D. Michael Bay tricked us into believing that he would stop at the third film,...

There are a number of more new releases to home video today than in the last couple weeks, which is exciting, but most are wash outs from earlier this year and from last year. There are some great catalog titles, which is nice. Check it out…

Box Office Predictions: 'Pain and Gain' Pumps Itself to the Top Spot

Published by

Pain and Gain
It's the end of April, which means that the summer season starts next week with Iron Man 3 (which is really good). Until then, we get a Michael Bay movie starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson, which would normally be a big summer event, but since this is Bay's small art film, it's being released with the hope of having little competition and a quick payday.

After years of making big, dumb, and almost sociopathically stupid CGI-heavy films like The Transformers franchise and The Island, Michael Bay is finally going back to the genre that he began in—big, dumb, and almost sociopathically stupid comedic action films that are well aware how utterly ridiculous they are (see also: Bad Boys, The...

The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally upon us—Transformers 4 finally has a plot summary.  Yes, we can finally know what Michael Bay will use to feature a bunch of robot vehicles fighting each other all over planet Earth, all while a series of interchangeable human actors stare in wonderment at a series of green screens.  It’s a pretty exciting day.

HBO Entourage the Movie
As if the television show hadn’t become insufferable enough before it finally ended in 2011, Entourage is returning to haunt our lives with its smarmy and smug Hollywood bromancery.  But it will no longer be infecting your television—Entourage is coming to your big screen.  Yes, Warner Bros. is green lighting a film follow-up to the mercifully ended TV...

Broken City: Movie Review

Published by

broken-city 3
Allen Hughes has stepped out on his own to direct Broken City. It's an intriguing thriller that stumbles on its feet as it comes to a close. It keeps you guessing and has a wonderful cast, but those positives can't hide the film's flaws.

No city is without its share of deceit and corruption. Humans are complicated animals who'll do whatever they can to survive --even break the rules. Director Allen Hughes' latest movie Broken City deals with how desperate people can become in order to maintain their reputation. Since he wasn't collaborating with brother Albert Hughes, Allen's unique directing style...

Michael Bay has spent most of the last decade making Transformers movies, and will continue to for at least one more film. But for those who ever suggested the director had something going on besides being one of the most talented directors with visual effects and scale, it's been hard to defend Bay considering he's made three big-budget toy adverts. Now comes...

Broken City, which stars Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones (all Oscar nominees, and 66% of those are winners) is coming out January 18. And it used to be if a film like this came out in January, it was because it was terrible. Nowadays, all it means is that it's a B picture that features stars, and may deliver the goods, but can't compete with...

Because his insufferability is to the point that not even a megabudget Transformers sequel can contain him, it’s been known for some time that Shia LaBeouf would not be returning for Michael Bay’s Transformers 4.   Rumor has had it that this film would feature a female protagonist (because Michael Bay’s all about progressive gender politics) with a race car-driving...

'Broken City' Clip: Russell Crowe Intimidates Mark Walhberg

Broken City
They say January is where movies go to die. Allen Hughes' upcoming political thriller Broken City has an impressive cast, but can it do better than Mark Wahlberg's last January film (Contraband)? Our hopes are much higher for this one, especially after this first clip where an intimidating Russell Crowe tells Wahlberg, "I own you."

Though it won’t see a release for another year and a half—June 27, 2014, to be exact—the news surrounding Transformers 4: Seriously, A Fourth One? has already been ramping up of late.  First came the rumor that Mark Wahlberg would star.  Then Michael Bay said he wouldn’t star.  Then Bay said, ‘sure, internet, what the hell—let’s put Wahlberg in there.’  Now Bay has...
