Hustlers DVD Review

14 April 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Wayne Kramer

Starring: Paul Walker, Norman Reedus, Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser

Running Time: 112 minutes

Certificate: 18

Hustlers (or Pawn Shop Chronicles in the Us) follows the lives of a group of people who happen to pass through the same pawn shop. As their stories unfold, we see how their paths cross and where their journeys take them.

Three main stories see Paul Walker planning a robbery with his friends while high on drugs, Matt Dillon on the hunt for his missing wife and Brendan Fraser touring as an Elvis tribute act.

Paul Walker captivates in this insane adventure as the hilarious, dirty and drug-fueled imbecile – which certainly makes a nice surprise for the actor more commonly known for being a pretty boy in his roles. His character is so high when the film begins that he sees fire come out of painted flames! However, despite the severity of »

A day after committing to three seasons of The Big Bang Theory, CBS has renewed 18 shows, which leaves only The Mentalist, Intelligence and, most worrisome, The Crazy Ones with their fates undetermined.

Don’t care about the source, I just want to keep my John Cho delivery system working.

Syfy has ordered its first mini-series since 2009, according to The Hollywood Reporter — and it’s a return to a series set in space.

Clueless: What the cast did after hit teen comedy

11 March 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Iggy Azalea paid tribute to cult teen classic Clueless in her recent music video for 'Fancy'.

The Australian rapper appears as Alicia Silverstone's iconic character Cher in the video, which was released online last week.

As stars continue to be inspired by the movie almost 20 years on, we take a fond look back at the cast and what they went on to do after Clueless:

Alicia Silverstone (Cher Horowitz)

Alicia Silverstone played seemingly shallow socialite Cher - famously branded "a virgin who can't drive" and "hymenally challenged" - in the high-school adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma.

Prior to Clueless, Silverstone's credits included ABC comedy-drama The Wonder Years and a number of Aerosmith videos. The film propelled her to further fame, and she went on to star in Joel Schumacher's 1997 movie Batman & Robin, crime-comedy Excess Baggage (1997) with Benicio Del Toro and Christopher Walken, and romantic drama Blast from the Past (1999) opposite Brendan Fraser. »

The Grand Budapest Hotel, 300: Rise Of An Empire, Paranoia: this week's new films

7 March 2014 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Grand Budapest Hotel | 300: Rise Of An Empire | Wake In Fright | Paranoia | The Stag | Escape From Planet Earth

The Grand Budapest Hotel (15)

(Wes Anderson, 2014, UK/Ger) Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori, F Murray Abraham, Willem Dafoe, Saoirse Ronan. 100 mins

You wonder how long Anderson can keep accumulating star actors and creating ever more elaborate microcosms but, judging by this, he's a long way from running out of steam. It's a witty caper-within-a-reminiscence-within-a-flashback set in interwar Europe, through which Fiennes's debonair concierge must flee, protege lobby boy in tow, after an heiress's murder. It's breathlessly paced and breathtakingly designed, but with a solid core – like a fancy cake with an iron file concealed inside.

300: Rise Of An Empire (15)

(Noam Murro, 2014, Us) Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Rodrigo Santoro. 102 mins

With the bar for violent historical silliness raised by Game Of Thrones, this sequel pitches recklessly into another orgy of fetishised classical warfare with comic-book effects. »
