Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has one of the weakest weekend box-office debuts of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago the modestly budgeted, Warner Bros.-distributed Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden stop to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, »

Star Trek Actor Leonard Nimoy Dead at 83

28 February 2015 2:29 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Leonard Nimoy, the actor, director and author, known mostly for his work on "Star Trek," has passed away at his Bel Air home due to complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83 years old. Nimoy started his acting career in early 1950s, which mostly included guest spots on shows like "The Outer Limits" and "The Man From Uncle." But in 1966, he signed on to play Mr. Spock on Gene Roddenberry's NBC series "Star Trek," which would go on to air for only three seasons. Thanks to a cult following, the show spawned an animated series, twelve feature films, four spin-off shows, video games, theme park rides and lots of merchandise. After directing the third and fourth films in the "Star Trek" franchise, he proved to be a talent behind the camera, going on to direct the 1987 hit "Three Men and a Baby." In recent years, Nimoy appeared in »

Video Game Review – Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 1

Alan Heath reviews Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Episode 1 on PS4…

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is an episodic sequel to the 3Ds title that took the franchise back to its survival horror roots after a couple of action packed entries into the franchise. Set between the events of Resident Evil 5 and 6, Revelations 2 sees the return of Claire Redfield and, playable for the first time in a main story, Barry Burton. Each episode is split into two parts as you play from each characters perspective in an interlocking story.

While attending a party for TerraSave (“Because ‘terra’ shouldn’t end with ‘ist’ ”), a human rights organisations to which Claire works, Miss Redfield is joined by Moira Burton, the daughter of Barry. Soon things get a bit more serious as armed men crash the party and kidnap an unknown number of the guests, including Claire and Moira. When the two regain consciousness they »

Leonard Nimoy, ‘Star Trek’s’ Spock, Dies at 83

27 February 2015 9:21 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Leonard Nimoy lived up to his longtime catchphrase: Live long and prosper. Having achieved success in many arenas during his lifetime, the actor, director, writer and photographer died Friday in Los Angeles of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83.

He also dabbled in singing and songwriting.

But despite his varied talents, Nimoy will forever be linked with the logical Mr. Spock. Spotted by “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry when he appeared on Roddenberry’s NBC Marine Corps. skein “The Lieutenant,” Nimoy was offered »

Out Of The Dark (2014) – The Review

26 February 2015 7:09 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s been some time since I’ve had that feeling of being “had,” going into something with hopeful expectations, only to find out that it was all a ruse. Cinema is often like this, drawing us in, capturing our emotions and interests, even playing off our primal instincts. Michael Bay knows the mass loves explosions, so there are always plenty in his films, all of which appear int he films’ trailers. Trailers are another way that we, as viewers, can be duped. It’s a necessary evil, I suppose. The nature of the marketing beast that, inevitably, will always accompany the anticipation involved with being a movie watcher. This has become something of a cultural agreement of modern society. We tolerate in order to be entertained.

I find it “crazy” how individuals associated with one film, generally applauded for being a success, can turn around and be equally associated with a flop, »

'Focus' (2015) Movie Review

26 February 2015 6:20 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you've seen even an ounce of the film's marketing, before you even step into the theater you're aware Focus is a conman "thriller" and so you're going to be looking for clues as to what's really going on. Hell, the title alone is basically daring you to try and figure it out before the "big reveal". Writer/director duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa are clearly aware of this and you can almost see the wheels turning as they try and set the audience up for what I assume they believe is a whopper of a finale. And, in all honesty, I would be fine with how Focus ended had it only not betrayed the character traits it establishes along the way and had it not been so lazy in setting up the relationship between its two leads. Will Smith plays Nicky, a hot shot conman that other members »

Michael Bay ('Transformers: Age of Extinction') ties Razzie Awards record for Worst Director

22 February 2015 11:55 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

By taking home his second Razzie for Worst Director for "Transformers: Age of Extinction," action filmmaker Michael Bay now holds the distinction of being tied for the most "wins" in the category. He had previously prevailed in this category for the second instalment of the Transformers franchise, "Revenge of the Fallen" (2009). -Break- Only two other directors have taken home this dishonor on more than one occasion: John Derek prevailed first for "Bolero" (1984) and then for "Ghosts Can't Do It" (1990), which was the last film he directed before he passed in 1998. And M. Night Shyamalan was recognized for "Lady and the Water" (2006) and "The Last Airbender" (2010), 20 years after Derek had set the record in the category.

Kirk Cameron And Cameron Diaz “Win” Big At 2015 Razzie Awards

22 February 2015 11:16 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for has arrived. No, I’m not talking about any of that “Oscars” silliness, or Neil Patrick Harris taking on hosting duties. No, I’m talking about the 2015 Razzie Awards, in which all the crap of the crop from this past year in cinema at last gets its well-deserved comeuppance.

This year’s “winners” are a particularly disreputable bunch, with Kirk Cameron leading the pack for his atrocious Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and Michael Bay reliably racking up more Golden Raspberry Awards for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. It was a strangely good night for Ben Affleck, who took home the “Redeemer” Award for turning his career around from Gigli to Gone Girl, and a bad one for Cameron Diaz, who lost out in Worst Supporting Actress for Annie (which still, deservedly, won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel) but received »

2015 Razzie Award Winners Announced

22 February 2015 8:24 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Independent Spirit Awards weren't the only awards handed out yesterday though with the 35th annual Razzie Awards also being announced. Though most awards shows celebrate the best cinema of the year, the Razzies are known for congratulating the worst.

Unsurprisingly "Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas" dominated the results and scored Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Duo (for Cameron and his ego).

"Transformers: Age of Extinction" scored awards for Worst Supporting Actor (Kelsey Grammar) and Worst Director (Michael Bay). Cameron Diaz ("The Other Woman" & "Sex Tape") took Worst Actress, Megan Fox ("Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles") scored Worst Supporting Actress, and "Annie" took Worst Remake.

The new category this year though was the Razzie Redeemer award for past winners who've since made good. Ben Affleck took that honor this year. »
