It’s ironic that I stumbled onto this recent Grantland article about Tyrin Turner, considering that, just a few weeks ago, I watched the Hughes Brothers’ Menace II Society for the first time in many years.It’s amazing as well that it’s been over 20 years since that film was made, and that, even today, it is, unfortunately, still as relevant as ever. Perhaps even more so. It is a grim experience watching that film and wondering how many young black men (and women) have ended up dead since that film came out.But what about those involved with the film? The Hughes brothers are still making films. Bill Duke and Larenz Tate are still around, and Samuel l. Jackson hasn’t been exactly »

By not simply rolling to "The End," "They all lived happily ever after," etc. after Frodo made a three-pointer chucking The One Ring into Mount Doom, Peter Jackson set a pretty bad precedent in "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King." Every time it seemed like all was well and we were fading to credits, another five-minute scene would roll in. Toss in a few Oscars and you've got a bunch of blockbuster directors wanting to add 20 endings to their genre films, too.
With "Man of Steel" currently keeping people from validating their parking for way longer than they should, let's take a look at five recent flicks that just kept going and going and going ...

Queens — The FBI began digging for a body Monday in the former Queens home of notorious mob power James “Jimmy The Gent” Burke, who was famously portrayed by Robert De Niro in the movie "Goodfellas," sources told DNAinfo New York.
FBI Evidence Collection specialists and agents from the Organized Crime Division descended into the basement of Burke’s family home at 81-48 102 Rd. in South Ozone Park around 8 a.m. armed with jackhammers and sledge hammers.
Sources said the feds recently obtained information from a new cooperating informant linked to the Gambino and Bonanno crime families who told them he believed a hood who disappeared decades ago was buried in Burke’s basement or backyard.
The sources say the dig is not related the fabled 1978 Lufthansa Heist, where Burke, portrayed as Jimmy Conway by De Niro in "Goodfellas," and his fellow wiseguys pulled off an $8 million robbery at JFK, »
Reynolds voices the titular character in the DreamWorks animated tale about a snail who dreams of racing in the Indy 500 and who -- because of a freak accident -- may get the opportunity.

Marvel's The Avengers is the third highest grossing movie of all time. Pulling in over $623 million at the domestic box office, it was lauded by critics and fans alike, and it appealed to every demographic across the board. Joss Whedon stuck the landing, as they say, creating one of the greatest superhero movies in the history of the genre. That's a hard act to follow for anyone. Where do you go from directing one of the most popular summer movies of all time?
Some might have tried to follow it up with another blockbuster in the same vein. Others would have tried to go the indie route or down Oscar Avenue, seeking artistic integrity and Academy gold. Few would have succeeded, most would have failed completely. None could have ever possibly lived up to the hype. Joss, on the other hand, »
The 20th Century Fox release opens July 17th, 2013 powered by Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Dogg and Samuel L. Jackson. These posters just keep piling up, as is the norm these days. By the time the film hits release, we will probably up to 20 posters. The animated film is directed by David Soren who also writes with Robert D. Siegel and Darren Lemke. Turbo is a high-velocity 3D comedy about an underdog snail who kicks into overdrive when he miraculously attains the power of super-speed. But after making fast friends with a crew of streetwise, tricked-out es-car-goes »
I think we all know by now that Armond White isn't exactly one to be shy with sharing his thoughts on just about anything and/or anyone. He certainly isn't here. The question is whether you think his argument is valid or not. I'll say no more, and just let you listen to the clip below, published last Thursday. It's quite damning I think, but, if Samuel Jackson was asked to respond to this, I can only imagine his reply would be something like, "Man, I don't give a f*ck about Armond White," having interviewed him myself last December, for Django Unchained, and the general vibe I got from him, and his Pov on what he feels a black actor's job and obligations are (questions I did ask »

The Avengers 2 writer-director Joss Whedon revealed over the weekend that Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston in Thor and Marvel's The Avengers, will not be featured in the upcoming Marvel Phase Two sequel.
"Immitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well. Second of all, and Loki is not there to say those terrible things."
Tom Hiddleston does return in Thor: The Dark World, debuting in theaters this fall, but it isn't known why the villain does not make an appearance in The Avengers 2. The filmmaker also confirmed a story from April that he has finished the first draft of the sequel, and that the rest of the Marvel's The Avengers cast is returning.
"I've turned in a first draft, but the story is very set. Everybody's very much on board with the exact movie I'm trying to make which is what worked the first time. »
The fandom for Thor: The Dark World is pretty large, especially considering the enormous fan base actor Tom Hiddleston enjoys. The following for Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson) and Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif) is nothing to sneeze at either. In that respect, fans have been analyzing a few recent tweets from Alexander trying to discern what exactly Alexander was preparing to do for the Thor sequel. It was expected that Alexander was preparing to do 'something' more but was it Adr work or actual reshoots? Well now it appears that we have our answer. Interesting enough, Samuel L. Jackson also revealed via twitter that he made a quick trip to the UK while in the middle of filming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The majority of 'The Dark World' was filmed at Iver's Pinewood Sutdios. It's entirely possible that rather than reshoots, an end-credit or stinger scene was filmed. »

Jackson. David Soren directs as well as scripting alongside Robert D. Siegel and Darren Lemke.

Over the past week or so we've seen a tonne of spy photos from the Cleveland set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Natasha Romanov (Scarlett Johansson) and Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) battle the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), and now a new batch of images have arrived online from yesterday's filming giving us a look at Falcon taking to the skies (sans wings, which will presumably be added in post-production). Check them out courtesy of ComicBookMovie...
Okay, so maybe "flailing through the air" would be a more appropriate description, but of course we'll have to reserve judgement until we see the finished article. Anyway, here's a few more images, this time showing Cap deflecting a few rounds from the Winter Soldier's men, along with an exploding bus...

And today, that costume made an appearance during the Cleveland shoot of the movie. Check out several photos of it below and let us know what you think of it.

Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Robert Redford, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, and Emily VanCamp. It's set to hit theaters on April 4th, 2014.

Today's photos from the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier give us a better look at the upgraded Captain America costume. These shots feature Chris Evans' stunt double riding a motorcycle on the Lorain Avenue Bridge in Cleveland, and it seems that he may be getting his shield ready to toss at an unseen enemy. We also see a few young fans dressing up in their own Captain America outfits, because who doesn't like to see kids dressed up as superheroes? What do you think of Cap's new outfit? Do you prefer this outfit or the original design from Captain America: The First Avenger?
Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes to theaters April 4th, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Robert Redford, Frank Grillo. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo. »
We’ve previously seen concept art of the newly designed patriotic uniform of First Avenger Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), but we’ve discovered the first set stills of motorcyclist stuntman donning the garb in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
They’ve been countless set images from the currently-shooting Marvel sequel, which will follow the (war)time-hopping super soldier and his struggles at fitting into this new world. Who, after defeating red skulled egomaniacs and teaming up to take on intergalactic evildoers, is needed to stop a familiar-faced assassin. The frozen corpse of friend Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), long-thought dead and lost in the past, is expected to be found by the villain Brock ‘Crossbones’ Rumlow (Frank Grillo), defrosted in present-day and programmed as the perfect frosty killing machine.
Let us know what you think.
