Rocky adds muscle to the American dream

15 December 2014 6:58 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You know you’ve made it when they make a onesie in your honour. Rocky’s is iconically straightforward: it is black with a red hood, it shows a pair of red gloves hanging around the neck, and across the shoulders the word ‘Rocky’ is displayed in typically solid white capitals. There is something so simple and straightforward about the whole Rocky franchise that makes it irresistible – but there is more to the story than just the commercialisation.

In truth, Sylvester Stallone’s eponymous hero was a merchandising man’s dream – or to put it another way, Stallone captured something of the American dream in his humble, heart-as-big-as-a-lion hero: American dreams have always been in fashion.

Rocky’s old-time values, his decency and his uncomplicated determination to do the right thing were a perfect token of what it meant to be American in the 1980s. Rocky was straightforwardly one of »

DVD Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

15 December 2014 4:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Innovation should be rewarded. Experimentation should be commended. For those two reasons I’m awarding the second Sin City film two stars. There are reasons to celebrate the cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s neo-noir series of graphic novels. They are garish mash ups of old stories and new technology. Visually interesting pieces of crime fiction that expose almost every cliche the genre ever created.

I was pretty tough on the first Sin City. I admired what it aspired »

‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Blu-ray 3D Review

14 December 2014 9:58 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Dennis Haysbert, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Christopher Lloyd, Jaime King, Juno Temple | Written by Frank Miller | Directed by Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller

It was an invite to review a Blu-ray like any other, or so I thought. You get your disc, you take your chances. Sometimes everyone goes home with a smile on their faces, sometimes people go to the emergency room… without any face. I heard from the people that know that a sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City was in town. Looking for trouble. Out to bust some heads and blow some minds. Sin City and me, we go way back. We had history. Once we’d been lovers but time had moved us apart. So when this new bozo turns up, A Dame to Kill For, »

12 Movies to See After You Watch ‘Die Hard’

12 December 2014 2:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Ho-Ho-Ho. ‘Tis the season to watch Die Hard, the classic Christmas-set action blockbuster that is also one of the most influential movies of all time. Not only has it spawned four actual sequels and a number of pseudo sequels, it’s also been copied, ripped off and practically remade over and over again without shame. And yet Die Hard was not even the first “Die Hard on a ____ ” movie. Nor was it a wholly original work, having been adapted from a book that was meant to be a sequel to another book and its movie adaptation. As much as this John McTiernan-directed breakout for Bruce Willis became a leader in its genre, it still owed a ton to movies that came before it. Some of those are indirect precursors in premise, others explicitly referenced. Die Hard is a movie that is, like its hero is said to be, an “orphan of a bankrupt culture,” informed »

Bruce Willis cuts millions off 20 acre home - Reduced from $15M to $7M!

11 December 2014 12:10 PM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Bruce Willis cut millions off the price on his 20 acre estate in Idaho and it looks like the actor may take a big hit as he has reduced the price from $15 million to $7 million. The home sounds magnificent, the 20-acre property has an 8,400-square-foot main house and was remodeled and upgraded in 20013 by the 'Die Hard' actor. It's not the first time he has taken less than his original asking price for one of his properties. Willis put his luxurious Spanish-style hacienda  up for sale for $22 million in May 2013, but has finally decided to sell the property for $16.5 million after it failed to attract the interest he'd anticipated. However, Bruce will still make a huge profit as he paid a relatively modest $9 million for the house in 2004, but felt a higher selling price was justified because of the extensive renovations he had undertaken since moving »

Whoa! Rumer Willis Does the Splits in the Air During Aerial Workout—See the Pic!

10 December 2014 4:50 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Looks like Rumer Willis is taking a cue from Pink (at least when it comes to her fitness regime)!  The 26-year-old daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a shot from a recent aerial workout. In the black and white pic, Willis is suspended sideways with her legs positioned in a middle split, showing off both her strength and flexibility.  "@themarkwildman got me all split up," the singer appropriately captioned the pic.  And apparently, this isn't the actress' first foray into the world of aerial dancing. She also posted a stunning shot just last week where she's hanging from an aerial silk while »

'Vice' Clip Starring Bruce Willis | Exclusive

10 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first trailer that debuted last week, we have an exclusive clip from the upcoming sci-fi thriller Vice that gives us a proper introduction to this futuristic resort, through a message from Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis). Much like Westworld and Total Recall before it, Vice centers on a place where fantasies are fulfilled without consequence or punishment of any kind. This scene gives us a few brief glimpses at what some of those scenarios could be while visiting Vice.

Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: Vice, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian's mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all. »

'The Green Mile': 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Stephen King Classic

10 December 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

No one was sure, when "The Green Mile" was released 15 years ago this week (on December 10, 1999), whether lightning could strike twice in the same spot for Frank Darabont. Sure, the writer/director's first Stephen King prison drama, 1994's "The Shawshank Redemption," had gone from commercial failure to beloved classic in five years. But another King prison tale, one that was three hours long and featured some horrific electric-chair executions, bizarre fantasy elements, and a trained mouse?

As it turned out, of course, "Green Mile" became a huge hit, earned four Oscar nominations, put another feather in star Tom Hanks's cap, and made a star of Michael Clarke Duncan, who played miracle-working, self-sacrificing inmate John Coffey. To this day, it remains the most beloved movie adapted from a King tale.

Still, as many times as you've seen it, there's plenty you may not know: how former ditch-digger Clarke got the star-making part, »

The strange history of the Die Hard movies

9 December 2014 5:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Die Hard series may be alive and well, but there's a unique story behind the writing of each one…

As any action fanatic will tell you, Die Hard is among the best films of its type ever made. Tautly directed by John McTiernan, deceptively well shot by cinematographer Jan de Bont, and full of charismatic turns from Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman and Bonnie Bedelia, it’s seldom been bettered, even by its sequels.

The key to the first film's success, and the sequels in their best moments, is hero John McClane. Tough, sarcastic but ultimately human and relatable, he cuts a very different figure from the beefed-up, larger-than-life heroes of 1980s and 90s action cinema. When John McClane gets shot or injured, he actually feels pain. It's something we were keenly aware of in the 1988 original, but gradually ebbed away as the Die Hard franchise drifted from thriller territory »

New Poster for SyFy’s 12 Monkeys

7 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The SyFy Channel has released a poster for their upcoming 12 Monkeys series. This show looks like it has potential, but we’ll have to wait to see how it all shakes out. You should check out the trailer for it here if you haven’t already. 

The show stars Aaron Standford (X2: X-Men United) as Cole, who was played by Bruce Willis in the 1995 movie. The series seems very different from Terry Gilliam’s film, and the story follows the Cole as he travels from 2043 to the present day so that he can locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will all but annihilate the human race. While on his mission, he teams up with Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) as well as a female mental patient named Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire), which is a character loosely based on the character played by Brad Pitt.

Pulp Fiction 20th Anniversary Retrospective

5 December 2014 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jules: “You know what they call a Quarter-Pounder with Cheese in Paris?”

1994. The year Justin Bieber and Harry Styles were born – luckily the world was not ready yet for those two (was it ever ready?) and instead, we had actual art like Pulp Fiction to lift us from the grave, like The Bride in Kill Bill Vol.2. Interestingly, much like The Bride Pulp Fiction had to fight through the suffocating dirt that went with making an independent film in the 90s. Before we delve further in to the humble beginnings of the iconic film, 1994 was the year Dumb And Dumber, The Shawshank Redemption, Forrest Gump, The Lion King, Interview With The Vampire and Natural Born Killers were released. Not a bad year for film you could say, certainly for a young kid growing up then. I must admit, I wasn’t totally aware of Pulp Fiction at that time, but »

Vice Trailer: Watch Bruce Willis Return To Sci-Fi In This Provocative Film

4 December 2014 10:36 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s been a while since Bruce Willis starred in a sci-fi flick, but it seems he.s picked quite a provocative film to mark his return to the genre. Check out the trailer for his latest film, Vice. I.ll be honest, I.m pretty intrigued by this film. In a sort-of similar idea to The Purge (at least in the "we.ll offer you a place where anything goes" aspect), Vice is a place where people can act out their wildest, darkest fantasies on the human-looking robots that inhabit Vice. Of course, as is the case with any artificial intelligence, one of the robots becomes self-aware and escapes from Vice. Bruce Willis. character, Julian, is in charge of Vice and sends his men out to capture the escaped robot, Kelly (played by Ambyr Childers). Kelly then finds herself trying to escape from Vice and all of Julian.s »

30 Great Sci-Fi Movies on Netflix Streaming Right Now

4 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"What if?" is the burning question our favorite sci-fi movies ask: What if Earth was invaded by aliens or giant spiders? What makes us human once we start bending the laws of genetics and robotics? And if we worked out really really hard, would we ever have Linda Hamilton's arms in "Terminator 2"?

Here are some of the best of the sci-fi genre now streaming on Netflix, including Chris Evans in "Snowpiercer," Bruce Willis in "The Fifth Element" and plenty of Godzilla and the crew of the USS Enterprise.

1. "Antiviral" (2012) Nr

David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, makes his film debut with this gore-filled horror flick about a company who deals in viruses collected from celebrities since people want to be infected with the same diseases as the ultra-famous.

2. "Barbarella" (1968) PG

The cult film, starring Jane Fonda as the sexy space babe of the title, may be overlong, but it's an eye-popping must-see '60s flashback. »

4 December 2014 8:29 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Blending the “anything goes” artificial intelligence aspect of Michael Crichton’s Westworld with the android self-awareness of I, Robot, Vice, an upcoming sci-fi film from Lionsgate, takes viewers to a place where fantasies can become realities without any consequences, no matter how violent or depraved the actions. The film’s official trailer features a long-haired Thomas Jane hell-bent on shutting down the Vice resort.

“Julian Michaels (Bruce Willis) has designed the ultimate resort: Vice, where anything goes and the customers can play out their wildest fantasies with artificial inhabitants who look, think and feel like humans. When an artificial (Ambyr Childers) becomes self-aware and escapes, she finds herself caught in the crossfire between Julian’s mercenaries and a cop (Thomas Jane) who is hell-bent on shutting down Vice, and stopping the violence once and for all.
