Let's get ready to mumble: 13 incoherent performances

6 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Eh? What did he say?

Earlier this week, viewers complained that they couldn't make out half of what was being said in BBC One's new drama Jamaica Inn. A combination of Cornish accents and dodgy sound meant that most of the dialogue went over people's heads. Say what you want about Made in Chelsea or EastEnders, but at least you can follow what's going on.

Turn on the subtitles as Digital Spy takes a look back at some of the most confusing performances from TV and film, whether it was intentional or not.

Bane - Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises)

Fans of Christopher Nolan's Batman series were already concerned about Bane after seeing the first trailer. After reassurances that the sound will be altered in time for its full release, we are as confused as ever by what Bane was going on about. We thought Christian Bale's growling Batman was bad enough. »

Recap: 'Survivor: Cagayan' - 'Sitting in my Spy Shack'

10 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pre-credit sequence. Jefra is still trying to piece together what went down at the last Tribal. This could take a while. She asks Tony for his reasons. "You guys wouldn't understand where I'm coming from," Tony says. This works for Trish, who insists she isn't mad about being totally in the dark. "I still trust Tony and he still trusts me," Trish insists. Spencer knows that Tony is unpredictable and that he may not be useful for long. "The sooner we make a move against Tony, the better," Spencer says. Tony Hopkins? Tony correctly suspects that he'll be in trouble after the last vote. So, for the second time this season, he constructs a spy shack, this one next to the water well. In no time, Tony's shack pays dividends. Jefra and Trish go to get water and Jefra laments that their alliance may be gone and she doesn't know where she stands. »

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Sorcerer,' 'Get Carter'

22 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Sorcerer"

What's It About? Roy Scheider co-stars in this thriller about four men from disparate backgrounds who, for various reasons, are forced to hide in a small village in South America. When a nearby oil well explodes, four of them must transport nitroglycerin through dangerous terrain in the hopes of extinguishing the fire.

Why We're In: William Friedkin's film met all sorts of bad luck upon release, from its box office competition (a little film called "Star Wars") to misleading marketing that confused audiences expecting a second helping of "The Exorcist." Although the Blu-ray doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, the quality of the transfer will sate all cinephiles who've been dying to add this cult favorite to their collection.

Rt for a chance 2 win #Sorcerer on BluRay - autographed by Oscar winning director @WilliamFriedkin! Rules: http://t.co/XWD2Vf »

From Bum to Italian Stallion: Sylvester Stallone as Rocky

21 April 2014 10:15 PM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

In the very opening scene of Rocky (1976, costume designer Robert Cambel), we see the title character in the ring, bare chested, hands encased in boxing gloves, the picture of sporting violence and masculinity. But this is no more than a surface assumption. Not two minutes later, we see Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) shrug on his faded brown towelling dressing gown, with “The Italian Stallion” embroidered on the back, and things start to shift. This is not a macho film concerned with the fight alone, but an exploration of masculinity in all its guises – the assumptions, the pretence and the reality. Clothes play an important part in this, both as items we believe the characters select for themselves on a daily basis, and as literal costumes chosen for performance in the ‘show’ of the boxing ring.

The aforementioned dressing gown is perfect in that it’s reminiscent of the flashy boxing stereotype, »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Grudge Match’ is Strictly Lightweight

21 April 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – This forgettable time waster is mildly amusing as long as you don’t let yourself go into mourning over Robert Deniro’s career. But then again that almost goes without saying these days. Likewise Stallone who has had far more interesting career choices in the last decade than this. The pair play retired boxers who comes out of retirement for one last fight. One for the paycheck. The other to settle an old score.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Both have a hate/hate non-relationship with the other. The catalyst for their big bout is the quippy but often obnoxious Kevin Hart who was presumably cast to draw in an audience that has never heard of Rocky or Raging Bull. Alan Arkin plays the grumpy old trainer who verbally spars with Hart. There’s little energy on display here comic or otherwise. Worse, there’s a pointless subplot thrown in involving an illegitimate »

The 101 Best Sports Movies of All Time

20 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.

And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

Old Dudes Shoot Big Guns In New Pics From The Expendables 3

17 April 2014 10:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yeah, we’re all really excited about high art and the Cannes Film Festival line-up and everything, but you know what else is cool? Old dudes blowing things up. While no one is more facetious about big budget Hollywood films than than yours truly, I still have affection in my heart for The Expendables franchise. This means that when new images from The Expendables 3 pop up, I just have to talk about them.

These new pics are pretty much what you’d expect from the upcoming sequel, as our original Expendables are back, alongside a bevy of newcomers and some rather old faces as well. The franchise has been workings its way through all the A and B List stars of the 1980s, from Jean-Claude Van Damme to Chuck Norris and back again. In this sequel, aged thespians Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, and Arnold Schwarzenegger get armed and dangerous »

Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford & More Get Armed In New Pics From 'The Expendables 3'

17 April 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, here's a movie that won't be playing Cannes or coming anywhere near it: "The Expendables 3." It's not high art, and these things are barely movies at all, but they do have explosions and old dudes causing those explosions and that's all some folks need. And so, a batch of new pics from the action sequel are here. Yep, there's Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Arnold Schwarzenegger all doing their thing and looking tough and getting ready to see say some eye-rolling dialogue. In case you actually care, the plot revolves around a former member of the Expendables (played by Gibson) who has become a ruthless arms dealer who was left for dead... but surprise, he's still alive. So everyone bands together to take him out on the cheap sets of Bulgarian film studios. "The Expendables 3" opens on August 15th. »

‘The Hobbit’ Knocks ‘Frozen’ Off Top of Home Video Sales Chart

16 April 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” shot to the top of both national home video sales charts for the week ended April 13, ending a three-week stay at the top for Walt Disney’s “Frozen.”

“Frozen” slipped to No. 2 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. Nielsen data shows that consumers bought about twice as many copies of the “Hobbit” sequel as they did of “Frozen” during the week, with Blu-ray fans snapping up more than three times as many copies.

Two other new releases made it into the First Alert top 10. The Weinstein Co.’s “August: Osage County,” distributed by Anchor Bay, debuted at No. 4 (No. 9, Blu-ray), a good showing for a dark comedy about strong-willed women that only made $37.7 million in theaters. And Warner’s “Grudge Match, »

35 Things to Know about The Expendables 3 from Our Set Visit

16 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sylvester Stallone, Randy Couture, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren and Jason Statham are walking through an abandoned building.  The hallways are torn apart.  Debris is everywhere.  The building looks like it's in the middle of a war zone.  As the Expendables, clad in black clothing and carrying massive automatic weapons, take in their surroundings, they slowly make their way down a long hallway and carefully try to see what's ahead.  As they reach a closed door they stop.  Stallone motions with his head to open the door and in an instant Couture kicks it open and they all rush in. Last September, when director Patrick Hughes was filming The Expendables 3 in Sofia, Bulgaria, I was invited to visit the set with a few other reporters.  As a fan of The Expendables movies and especially the cast, I was excited to see them in action, and what I saw »

Sylvester Stallone Talks Topping The Avengers, the Cast, Using Actors’ “Baggage” as an Advantage, and More on the Set of The Expendables 3

16 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

You might think after decades of making kick-ass movies, Sylvester Stallone might want to slow down.  You'd be wrong.  While some actors are lucky to have one franchise during their career, Stallone has again and again played roles that fans around the world have loved.  In his latest successful franchise, The Expendables, Stallone leads some of the biggest action stars on the planet and shows no signs of slowing down. Last year when The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters.  During a break in filming, we were able to sit down with Stallone for an awesome interview.  He talked about the great additions to the cast, why he chose these particular actors, how he sees the actors' "baggage" from their previous films as an advantage, why the script changed during production, the younger Expendables joining the film, why he »

16 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last year, when The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters.   As most of you know, The Expendables 3 has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson.  Returning for the sequel are Jason StathamJet LiDolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer and Harrison Ford joining the cast along with Kellan LutzGlen PowellRobert Davi, Mma star Ronda Rousey, and welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz. While on set, one of the people I really wanted to talk to was director Patrick Hughes.  But as you might imagine, he was incredibly busy trying to make his day, so we were never able to get any time with him.  Thankfully, last week Lionsgate set up an exclusive phone interview with him, »

The things action movie heroes get up to on their days off

16 April 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 17 Apr 2014 - 06:28

What do the film characters of Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, Stallone, Norris et al get up to in the non-action bit of an action movie? Er...

Nb: This article contains certain words and images which may be considered unsafe for work.

When asked what he did between acting jobs, Robert Duvall once said, "Hobbies, hobbies and more hobbies." This is fair enough because, to quote James Bond, "everybody needs a hobby." Bond himself has all kinds of things to do in his spare time: playing Baccarat and Poker, talking to exotic ladies and drinking Martinis. For all we know, Bond might also be into origami and bell ringing.

The question is, what do other action heroes get up to when they're not shooting bad guys, blowing up trucks or rescuing their daughters from Val Verde? In most movies, we never find out. But in very, »

Maverick has a problem: Too. Much. Awesome.

Maverick isn’t just a pilot. He’s the best pilot there ever was or ever will be. He’s not the best of the best: He’s the best of the best…of the best. But his superiors can’t handle Maverick. He flies the way he wants to fly — awesomely. His superiors try to teach him the value of teamwork or whatever. The super-hot lady instructor with the boy’s name tries to heal him using totally sweet neon-lighted lovemaking, and also by getting him to deal with his emotionally distant father. »

The Gang Reunites In New Photo From The Expendables 3

15 April 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I think it’s safe to say that most action fans are looking forward to The Expendables 3. The first two films were a ton of fun, and despite the fact that the third outing looks to be a clone of its predecessors, I have no doubt that it will be just as enjoyable. Not only do we have returning cast members in Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture, but we’ll also be seeing some new faces show up in the form of Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford, among others. It’s a great cast and seeing everyone on screen together will surely be a treat.

Today, Lionsgate released a new photo from the film, featuring director Patrick Hughes with some of his stars (Stallone, Lundgren, Statham, Snipes, Couture and Crews). They don’t seem to be doing anything aside from posing for the camera, »
