I don’t what’s more of a trip, seeing an eerily realistic 3D rendering of Robert De Niro, or just seeing a Young(er) Robert De Niro. CG artist Hossein Diba did an amazing job with all of the textures and, of course, with the legendary actor’s signature grimacing mug. This makes me want to play a Robert De Niro video game. Not a game where you play as one of his many iconic characters, but a game where you play as De Niro himself, and you must act in several semi-unforgivable comedies with an “ok, he’s still got it” role peppered in every year. That would be a long and very accurate game. »

The Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Film Festival wrapped up its 5th annual hoorah in Hollywood on Sunday and this year was chock full of joyful and exciting films and special guests. There were so many wonderful old movies that most people have seen, but for me the true thrill was the chance to see a beloved movie on the big screen, the way it was intended.
Throw in some amazing guests and it was absolute gold.
Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book (1967)
Screened at the beautiful El Capitan Theater, The Jungle Book was the last Disney animated feature that was overseen by Walt Disney himself. After the success of Mary Poppins and other Disney hits such as The Parent Trap, The Absent Minded Professor and The Sword in the Stone, Disney went back to the well and asked songwriters Bobby and Richard Sherman to take a swing at its animated »

The MTV Movie Awards are coming your way on Sunday. The nominations this year, particularly for Movie of the Year, were interesting. I don't know that the wins will be, though, because frankly it seems like another young adult adaptation is poised to dominate after we got a bit of a breather from that sort of thing last year. I have no idea what I'm doing here. Yeah, the public votes, but I imagine there's plenty of rigging going on, too. So against reason, I'll try to predict them anyway. Don't use them for your office pool or anything (if you happen to work in an office so chill as to have an MTV Movie Awards pool, that is). Just try to follow my logic below and feel free to tell me why I'm wrong in the comments section. Best Kiss Ashley Benson, James Franco & Vanessa Hudgens, "Spring Breakers" Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Scarlett Johansson, »

The beauty of there being so many actors in the realms of moviemaking is that everybody has their own personal favourites. It’s tough to describe why, exactly, you like a certain actor; something unexplainable draws you to them, and it’s not easily put into words. Being asked why you favour Al Pacino over Robert De Niro only really results in a reply like: “He’s just more… visceral. I don’t know… he’s just… great!” We tend to follow our favourites wherever they venture, of course, supporting them and singing their praises for as long as they continue to entertain us.
That is, until they wind up doing something that forces you to re-evaluate everything you thought about them up to that point. It’s difficult for a single movie to change your perceptions of an actor you love, but in the cases of »

Directed by Martin Scorsese
It’s understandable if some viewers were a little surprised to learn Martin Scorsese was behind the comedic masterpiece that was last year’s The Wolf of Wall Street. While many of his films have had their fair share of black humor, he had never made what could be considered an outright comedy. The closest he had in the past was The King of Comedy, out now for the first time on Blu-ray. But this is no casual laugh riot. Quite the contrary, this 1982 film is among Scorsese’s most challenging features. Even with a dose of straight comedy, particularly early on, the film’s key themes and the increasing desperation of its primary characters are far from simply comical. Instead, The King of Comedy ends up as a cultural commentary wrapped in a darkly humorous veil, »

Plot (courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Video): In “Grudge Match,” Billy “The Kid” McDonnen (De Niro) and Henry “Razor” Sharp (Stallone) are two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate, Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all.
But they may not have to wait that »
