The Goldbergs Sneak Peek: Meet Murray's Disapproving Dad

9 December 2014 6:30 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

On The Goldbergs, the (s)mother usually steals the show. But this Wednesday’s episode (ABC, 8:30/7:30c) is all about dads — and when Paul Sorvino guest-stars as Murray’s father, he makes his son look like a ray of sunshine in comparison.

In TVLine’s exclusive video, Adam tries to bridge the family divide by asking his grandpa about his best memory of being with his kids.

Unfortunately, that backfires when Murray’s dad reveals that he still holds a grudge against his son for talking him out of the best investment of his life.

I Have Never Seen ‘The Rocketeer’

5 December 2014 8:12 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Here’s the thing that blew my mind about The Rocketeer: about two-thirds of the way into this movie, I couldn’t stop wondering how this movie wasn’t more of a respected classic instead of a “Hey, remember The Rocketeer?” kind of film. It had good characters, a cool story, it nailed the feel of 1940s serials. Man! And then I watched the last third. But we’ll get to that. For now, let’s talk about what the movie did right, like the cast. Let me begin by going on record as saying that I love Alan Arkin in basically everything he does. There’s just something about his performances that makes him feel like an old relative. Maybe it’s because, growing up, my parents loved The In-Laws, which was one of the few movies we actually owned, and they watched it pretty frequently. 1980s and 90s Jennifer Connelly was also excellent in »

Watch: Grow Up To Be A Gangster With 30-Minute 'Getting Made: The Making Of GoodFellas'

17 November 2014 11:28 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Today, Martin Scorsese turns 72-years-young, and his vast filmography gives you plenty of ways to celebrate (check out our retrospective of his films). But for many, particularly those of a certain age, "Goodfellas" remains, if not his best film, then certainly his most rewatchable and plainly enjoyable. While you've likely seen the movie more than a few times already, you might want to go behind-the-scenes to learn how it was made. The 30-minute "Getting Made: The Making Of Goodfellas," which was included on the film's home video release, has made its way online, and it's great stuff. Featuring insights from Scorese, Ray Liotta, Joe Pesci, Paul Sorvino, editor Thelma Schoonmaker, and more, the doc covers everything you want to know, from the use of silence in a key scene, the editing and music in the drug-fueled finale, how the "You think I'm funny?" sequence was put together, and much more. »

The Men Who Would Be Hughes (Plus Hepburn and the end of Rko)

6 November 2014 1:37 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Howard Hughes movies (photo: Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes in 'The Aviator') Turner Classic Movies will be showing the Howard Hughes-produced, John Farrow-directed, Baja California-set gangster drama His Kind of Woman, starring Robert Mitchum, Hughes discovery Jane Russell, and Vincent Price, at 3 a.m. Pt / 6 a.m. Et on Saturday, November 8, 2014. Hughes produced a couple of dozen movies. (More on that below.) But what about "Howard Hughes movies"? Or rather, movies -- whether big-screen or made-for-television efforts -- featuring the visionary, eccentric, hypochondriac, compulsive-obsessive, all-American billionaire as a character? Besides Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays a dashing if somewhat unbalanced Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 Best Picture Academy Award-nominated The Aviator, other actors who have played Howard Hughes on film include the following: Tommy Lee Jones in William A. Graham's television movie The Amazing Howard Hughes (1977), with Lee Purcell as silent film star Billie Dove, Tovah Feldshuh as Katharine Hepburn, »

Mark Wahlberg Takes A Risk in The Gambler Trailer

5 November 2014 11:31 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“When you get a second chance, the risk is worth taking.”

Paramount Pictures has released the slick new trailer for director Rupert Wyatt’s upcoming drama, The Gambler.

The new film is a remake of the 1974 movie starring James Caan, Paul Sorvino and Lauren Hutton.

Jim Bennett (Academy Award-nominee Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring (Alvin Ing) and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother (Academy Award-winner Jessica Lange) in his wake.

He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett’s future. As his relationship with a student (Brie Larson) deepens, »

Watch: Mark Wahlberg Risks It All In The First Full Trailer For 'The Gambler'

5 November 2014 11:13 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Is Paramount gunning for the Oscars in their late-game dark morality tale “The Gambler” starring Mark Wahlberg? Could be, and the film looks terrific regardless; it's perhaps a reminder to pundits that the adult drama ain’t dead quiet yet. Directed by Rupert Wyatt (“Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes”), the film is a remake of the 1974 film of the same name written by James Toback, directed by Karel Reisz and starring James Caan, Paul Sorvino and Lauren Hutton. That picture is vastly underrated, not widely remembered and thus the sort of picture that’s ripe to be remade. Here’s the official synopsis: Jim Bennett (Academy Award® nominee Mark Wahlberg) is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits »

Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, and John Goodman Get Tough in 'The Gambler' Red Band Trailer

22 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Put on your headphones before checking out this trailer for "The Gambler," because it's got a red band for a reason.

This remake of the 1974 crime classic stars Mark Wahlberg as a college professor with a bad gambling habit. (Hey, you've gotta pay off those school loans somehow - those degrees don't come cheap.) In this trailer, Jim is getting a stern dressing down from a loan shark played by John Goodman. The crux of this advice is to get rich enough to be able to say "F**k you" to anyone who wants you to do something you don't want to do. Which is sort of the American dream, right?

This proves to be some shady advice from the looks of what happens to Jim throughout the trailer. Plus, he's got to keep all of this secret from his mom (Jessica Lange) and his girlfriend (Brie Larson).

The original movie stars James Caan, »

Iggy Azalea dropped the video for her new single, "Black Widow," on Wednesday, and in it, she and Rita Ora - who lends vocals to the song - don their best skintight bodysuits to take down an evil, abusive boyfriend played expertly by Michael Madsen. Iggy takes on the role of Uma Thurman's character in Kill Bill and wields a giant sword while hunting down Madsen's villain. The video also features cameos from T.I. and Hollywood heavyweight Paul Sorvino. Iggy Azalea has already proven that she can pull off the music-video movie spinoff (like she did with the Clueless-inspired video for "Fancy" earlier this year), but what do you think of her latest? Watch the "Black Widow" video below and let us know. »

The Devil’s Carnival 2 Officially Begins Production, And Will Most Certainly Hassle The Hoff! [Updated]

8 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you were as big a fan of Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich’s musical horror spectacle The Devil’s Carnival as I, you can officially start rejoicing now that production has begun on The Devil’s Carnival 2. If you can remember, a teaser trailer was released way back in 2012 that suggested the hellish carnival inhabitants would be traded for – or joined by – an equally colorful cast of heavenly bodies, and this was confirmed by TechN9ne’s angelic Librarian. Since then, there hasn’t been much movement, but if you’ve been checking up on the project’s social media channels, you’d know that Bousman’s production has officially been given the green light! Alleluia!

Along with some behind-the-scenes photos featuring returning actors like Marc Senter and Briana Evigan, it’s also been announced that David Hasselhoff has joined the cast as what I’m assuming will »
