Here we go again, ostensibly for the last time, and if this doesn't capture the magic of the first Hangover it's at least less offensive than the second, which isn't much of a recommendation. An intervention over Alan's mental health and the hunt for Mr Chow is what sets in motion the Wtf escapades and male bonding this time, but it all feels a little forced and familiar. If anything, the "wolf pack" is now too tame.

2005, judging by the theatrical releases, was an exceptional year for the neonoir sub-genre. Last summer, for the special Friday (neo)Noir series, reviews for Rian Johnson’s breakout independent hit Brick and Robert Rodriguez’s cinematic visualization of Sin City, both from 2005, were written. A couple of weeks ago another neonoir from the same year was put under the microscope, Shane Black’s Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. This week features, yes, still another entry from that illustrious year, one from the most lauded director of the bunch, David Cronenberg’s A History of Violence.
Set in Millbrook, Indiana, A History of Violence shares the tale of the Stalls, namely Tom (Viggo Mortensen), Edie (Maria Bello) and their son Jack (Ashton Holmes), all of whom live a reasonably quiet life, with the exception of Jack, a »

The Lord of the Rings and Eastern Promises star will be given the accolade in celebration of his body of work in film, photography, music and visual art.
Robert Galarza from Film 4 Change told TheWrap: "Dennis believed that to be an artist, you had to embrace all the arts. Viggo has his photography, painting, writing, poetry and philosophical musings in addition to his acting ability, and he has no great ego as an artist.
"He allows the art to move through him like a vessel, which is how Dennis saw the world."
The late Hopper was the first recipient of the award at the Albuquerque Film Festival in 2010. Film 4 Change also recognises artists who stand up for social change through its presentation.

The Hobbit has begun shooting again in New Zealand.
Peter Jackson announced on his Facebook page that pick-ups had commenced earlier this week, on what are thought to be scenes for the final film, There and Back Again.
"Back on set for our last Hobbit pick ups," Jackson wrote. "Our last ever Tolkien pick ups, in fact. It's going to be an intense few weeks, but we're looking forward to shooting some powerful scenes with our great cast."
Once the second episode of the BBC drama has wrapped, its production will take a hiatus in order to allow Freeman to finish shooting The Hobbit.
Digital Spy recently spoke to several cast members about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, who teased the second film's "darker" tone.

The film is inspired by “The Host,” one of six short stories in French-Algerian philosopher Albert Camus’ book, “Exile and the Kingdom.”
Mortensen stars as a French teacher in a small Algerian village in 1957 during Algeria’s war of independence from France. He is ordered to take a dissident to the authorities to turn him in but the two men unexpectedly bond.
The ¤6 million ($7.7 million) “Kingdom” is produced by Marc du Pontavice and Matthew Gledhill at Paris-based One World Films. “Viggo is a big fan of Albert Camus’ work and committed to star in the film very quickly after he read the script,” du Pontavice said. »

Twenty years ago, when I first started reading credits of movies I loved to see who'd written the screenplay, one name leapt out at me: Eric Red. In the space of three years in the late 1980s he wrote the terrifying Rutger Hauer road movie The Hitcher and two brilliant genre movies for a young director called Kathryn Bigelow: the trailer-trash vampire movie Near Dark, and Blue Steel, a feminist cop movie with Jamie Lee Curtis as a rookie up against an amorous serial killer. The first two of those have gone on to become bona fide cult classics. But Red remains little known – as does the film of his I really loved, one he wrote and directed in 1988, Cohen and Tate. »
Good old London town is the greatest city on Earth. I realise that many of you out there will immediately disagree with me, but I don’t care. I don’t want to alienate you from these pages, but this is a fact. I’ve lived in a small town in the northern part of the Cotswolds in the UK for a large part of my life, and five years ago this summer, this big beautiful place became my home. Since living here however, I’ve often thought that there was something seriously lacking, and now after sitting through a screening of the glorious Fast And Furious 6, is that ‘that thing that be lacking’ is a kick-ass $200 million action movie. I’ve been thinking to myself since viewing this fantastic piece of modern filmmaking (review coming soon); why have we not had many kick-ass action movies set in our big beautiful city? »

Robert Mitchum had them in Night of the Hunter. Elwood Blues had them in The Blues Brothers. Now Paul Giamatti is the latest intimidating dude to dabble in knuckle tattoos, as revealed in this first look at him playing The Rhino in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. As with nearly every tidbit we've gotten from the set, this photo comes from director Marc Webb's Twitter feed, with the message "Say hello to Aleksei Sytsevich." That, of course, is the real name of The Rhino, a thug for hire coming from the former Soviet Union who gets involve in an experiment that makes his skin super strong and resilient. Those tattoos on Giamatti look like exactly what you'd expect from a Russian thug-- think Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises-- and the barbed wire forehead tattoo is especially intense. Of course, we got a tease about these tattoos not long ago-- back »
Among circumstances that are devastating for you and awesome for everyone else, having a hot mom ranks near the top.
If it's you with the hot mom, there's nothing positive about it. You are the kid with the hot mom. Your friends could be asexual boy scouts and they'll still talk about how hot your mom is with relative frequency.
If it's your friend with the hot mom? A+! Congratulations! What a life bonus!
The children of the following ten movie characters have had to deal with a lot. Their (fictional) moms are incredibly sexy. Let's discuss.
The thing that's unique about Coolidge and why she receives the honor of batting leadoff on this list is that she's not exactly "classically" Milf-hot in the sense of "Overall hot woman who also happens to have children" Milf-hot (yes, there are categories of Milf-hotness as of right now).

What do Left Behind, Little Nicky, Mister Frost, and Hellboy all have in common? They all feature the devil in either a starring or cameo role. Satan or Lucifer has long been a fascinating figure ever since John Milton’s Paradise Lost immortalized him. Not surprising in a bit of homage Al Pacino as Satan in The Devil’s Advocate call himself “John Milton.” But treatments of the devil have varied greatly. In The Devil Rides Out (1968), Christopher Lee faces off against a Satan cult but Satan himself only appears for a few brief moments.
Tim Curry’s devil in Legend, on the other hand, takes center stage in perhaps the wildest interpretation yet with his devil sporting huge cloven hooves and horns. But in the 1990s, the devil became more and more cynical and laid back. Gabriel Byrne in the End of Days plays him as a normal man »
Hey everyone. I was relaxing last night, enjoying Scream Factory’s great release of Ted Nicolaou’s 1986 monster film Terrorvison, when I thought that it would be fun to go over my five favorite films that Charles Band’s Empire International Pictures had released during their very impressive run. Sure, they went on to form Full Moon after Empire’s end, but I’ve always been more inclined to revisit the Empire days, as I felt like those films were more ambitious and were approached better. So, here they are: My five favorite Empire movies. Read on!
*Not in any particular order*
Based on an H.P. Lovecraft story, Stuart Gordon’s Re-animator isn’t just one of the best films made by Empire, it’s one the best movies made by anyone. It’s a perfect blend of humor, gore and everything that Gordon’s films are known for, »
