The Bag Man: Movie Review

Published by

the bag man 4
Once in awhile you come across a film that's so dull, pointless and repulsive that it makes you question your own movie tastes. Are you actually a cynical person who sticks his/her nose up to any independent movie that comes your way? No, it's just that The Bag Man may be one of the worst films to come out this year so far. The...

Last Vegas brings Robert DeNiro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline together for the first time in one film. They play a group of 60-somethings who throw a bachelor party in Sin City for their last single friend.

'Grudge Match' Trailer: Stallone And De Niro Fight Each Other And The Plot...

Published by

grudge match
If the plot featured in the Grudge Match trailer seems a trifle familiar (a Sylvester Stallone-starring film about aging boxers who get the opportunity to prove themselves to modern audiences because of a boxing simulation video that goes viral and piques the public’s interest), well, perhaps you’ve heard of a 2006 film called Rocky Balboa: a Sylvester...

This week offers some great catalog titles, but the new releases are light. Basically, things won’t get exciting until some of the summer’s big titles start hitting home video. Still, there’s some winners here.

'American Hustle' Trailer: Christian Bale, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper Get...

American Hustle
If first you don't succeed with The Fighter, you try Silver Linings Playbook, and if you don't  succeed with that you try again with American Hustle it seems. Or at least that appears to be David O. Russell's playbook. For the third time in four years, he's going for Oscar glory with his latest starring Amy Adams,...

Silver Linings Playbook: Movie Review

Published by

JENNIFER LAWRENCE and BRADLEY COOPER star in SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
The formula in a formula picture is often more alchemy than science. It's the balance between making that ride both comfortable and unexpected. David O. Russell has thread this needle before - and quite brilliantly - with films like Three Kings and The Fighter, which took tired genres and made them interesting again. But with...

Blu-ray and DVD Picks for July 10 - 16

Matt Damon and Anna Paquin in Margaret
Still slow – perhaps post-holiday lag – for DVD and Blu-ray releases, but this week you can catch up with two of this year’s misfires, and a film that has had its reputation grow ever since it was dumped by its studio. Check out this week’s picks.

MGM Sues 'Raging Bull II' Producers, Universe Finally Makes Sense Again

Published by

Finally bringing the universe to its rightful place after the whole shebang seemed to be crumbling in on itself with the reality-crushing news that someone, somehow thought it would be a good idea to make a sequel to Raging Bull, MGM is now suing the producers of Raging Bull II and demanding an immediate halt in production.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in the 'Silver Linings Playbook'...

Published by

Silver Linings Playbook
David O. Russell could be described as mercurial, so it's fascinating to see what he's doing with his post-The Fighter success clout. His next film is Silver Linings Playbook, an adaptation of the best selling book, and it looks like a quirk-fest, albeit one with a great cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro,...

'Grudge Match' Casts De Niro And Stallone Back In The Ring

Published by

Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone are in talks to star in a new boxing comedy from director Peter Segal (Tommy Boy, Anger Management), that would see two retired boxers return to the ring for a final Grudge Match.   A boxing film about a battle between the men who played Raging Bull's Jake La Motta and the great Rocky Balboa,...

'Raging Bull 2' Is Happening, Without Martin Scorsese Or Robert De Niro,...

Published by

raging bull robert de niro
Raging Bull is many things—uncompromising, vicious, beautiful, daring, funny, harrowing, and brilliant.  Modern movie sequels tend to be, with very few exceptions, absolutely none of those things.  So, of course, it makes sense that Hollywood would churn out a Raging Bull sequel 32 years after the original battered its way into celluloid history, and will...

Being Flynn: Movie Review

Published by

Being Flynn – Robert De Niro
Being Flynn is Paul Weitz's version of A Better Life, so to speak. In the past few years, the Weitz brothers have individually (and literally) gone from big blockbusters (Little Fockers, The Twilight Saga: New Moon) to more personal projects about the complications between...

Killer Elite: Movie Review

Published by

Jason Statham and Robert De Niro in Killer Elite
What do you need to really know about Killer Elite before you see it? It has the words “Killer” and “Elite” in the title, the trailers have a ton of action, Jason Statham stars, and Robert De Niro and Clive Owen are in it. It’s only missing ninjas. Or is it?? Wait, it is, but it does have a lot of other things to look forward to...

New DVD Releases: Limitless, Take Me Home Tonight, Hey Dude

Published by

LimitlessDVDALP7-18-11
Not a whole to crow about on DVD this week. In fact, there's only three new releases (not counting the de facto Straight-to-DVD travesties) of any real note landing on shelves this week. And two of those are movies that you don't remember existed (or at least that Robert De Niro starred in one of them). What a shame! Luckily, the third DVD is probably the most exciting DVD release (for me)...

Jason Statham vs Clive Owen in Killer Elite Trailer

Jason Statham and Robert De Niro in Killer Elite
Even tied to a chair, Jason Statham is a formidable foe - at least int he new trailer for Killer Elite. No, it's not a remake of the old (and not particularly good) Sam Peckinpah film, and yes that's Statham going toe to toe with Clive Owen. And, yes, that's Robert De Niro brawling like a man half his age (or with good stuntpeople).  Check it out...

Robert De Niro To Star In Paranormal Thriller From 'Buried' Director

Published by

redlights
Robert De Niro fans, you won’t have to wait much longer until the actor, who is so choosey that he only appears in films once or twice a decade, appears in his next film (kidding, kidding, I know he stars in schlock every year—I just thought that maybe if I wished it hard enough, it’d come true), as he is set to star in Red Lights, the new film from Buried...

Limitless: Bradley Cooper Hanging With His Friends
Get ready to go on a drug binge this weekend with director Neil Burger's adaptation of the Alan Glynn novel, Limitless starring Bradley Cooper as a drugged up NZT addict. I received an NZT pill a while ago with a key containing an ad with Bradley Cooper selling NZT -- I have yet to try it, but if the experience is anything like it is in the film, it could be fun! Find...

Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in UK Limitless Poster

Published by

Limitless Short UK
An international one sheet has been released for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Limitless, which stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. At first glance it looks as if both actors have been attacked by the airbrush monster, but don't take our word for it. You be the judge.  The film is directed by Neil Burger and based on a novel written by Alan...
