Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville, Peter Stormare, Eduardo Noriega, Luis Guzmán, Sonny Landham, Jaimie Alexander, Zach Gilford | Written by Andrew Knauer | Directed by Jee-woon Kim
After a temporary retirement and a brief stint as the Governator of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned to the silver screen. Schwarzenegger has had a few cameos in The Expendables franchise but The Last Stand marks the first time Schwarzenegger has taken the lead in a film since Terminator 3. With such a long layoff one wonders if Schwarzenegger could pick up where he left off. While he would never be confused with an acting savant, he brought a certain magnetic charm that made him one of the world’s biggest action stars. Perhaps it’s an issue of too much rust on the gears or a hindrance due to advanced age that has water downed his charismatic persona. His movements are achy, his punches are feeble, »

The central paradox of Stephen Fung’s “Tai Chi” franchise is that it uses all manner of digital trickery to tell a story about the perils of modernization. That contradiction aside, “Tai Chi Hero,” the second entry in the projected trilogy, is a sporadically engaging martial-arts extravaganza that looks even better compared with its predecessor, last year’s borderline-insufferable “Tai Chi Zero.” While this 19th-century tale of provincial kung fu masters and their more technologically advanced enemies is a similarly rambunctious, CG-laden diversion, it boasts significant improvements with its less frenetic style and more focused storytelling. Expect the gravity-resistant sequel to land somewhere in “Zero’s” commercial ballpark ($24 million worldwide).
Once again the action swirls around Chen Village, an isolated mountain hamlet whose inhabitants practice a form of kung fu so extraordinary that no one from the outside world is allowed to learn it. The lone exception is Yang Luchan »

Pain & Gain
Directed by: Michael Bay
Running Time: 1 hr 50 mins
Release Date: April 26, 2013
Plot: Three Miami bodybuilders (Wahlberg, Mackie, Johnson) team up to rob a wealthy sandwich shop owner (Shaloub).
Who’S It For? Fans of Wahlberg, Johnson, and especially Michael Bay can not miss this movie. For all the aggressive ugly content within Pain & Gain, whether they be frustrating, terrible, or both, bulking up on tolerance for Pain & Gain’s shallow expressions is necessary.
Inject steroids into the Coen Brothers, give them buzzcuts, constantly place them around American flags, take away half of their clever brain cells, but inflate the ones that love an irresistibly crazy idiot plot (with madcappery that seems to go beyond regular human potential). What you’re left with is Pain & Gain, a superbly irreverent American crime story from a director »

Michael Bay ‘Pain & Gain’ box office: Bay’s first non-Transformers movie to fail to crack $20m domestic this weekend? This Pain & Gain box-office post is a fully updated version of my previous Pain & Gain box-office article. According to Deadline.com, Pain & Gain grossed a disappointing $7m on Friday, including $750,000 from Thursday late-night showings. That’s down from an expected $9m early in the day and $8m early in the evening. Barring a major Saturday surge — which is highly unlikely at this stage — Pain & Gain will end up with about $18-19.5m at 3,277 North American venues by Sunday evening. Afternoon estimates had the Michael Bay-directed movie grossing as much as $26m, later downsized to a more modest $21m — and now, quite likely, less than $20m. (Photo: Michael Bay on the Pain & Gain set.) Now, Paramount was purportedly expecting Michael Bay’s first non-Transformers, non-Shia Labeouf movie in »

‘Pain & Gain’ box office: Michael Bay’s less-than-atrocious effort to open either modestly or strongly, depending on your context of choice (photo: Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson in ‘Pain & Gain’) Starring Ted and The Fighter‘s Mark Wahlberg and G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Fast Five‘s Dwayne Johnson, and directed by Michael Bay — he of the big, loud, dumb, and immensely successful Transformers movies — Pain & Gain is expected to open with less than $25m at 3,277 North American locations. In fact, Bay’s mix of crime thriller and "offbeat" humor, which had some critics groaning (47% approval rating and 5.7/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes‘ top critics), should not end the weekend much above the $20m mark if early, rough Friday estimates are accurate. According to Deadline.com, barring a major evening surge Pain & Gain likely collected $8m on Friday, including $750,000 from Thursday night screenings. Barring a major Saturday surge — not all that likely »

Directed by Joel Coen
The Coen brothers are a breed of their own, seamlessly melding quiet, unrelenting humor with often brutal violence. Their films present wild irony, eccentricity, and post-modern takes on classic genre films. I have always been a huge fan, from Raising Arizona to No Country for Old Men. For years, nearly the only Coen bros. film I had not seen was Fargo, which is a pity because Fargo brought them their first awards for writing and directing. Ahead of their Cannes debut of Inside Llewyn Davis, I finally sat down to witness the dry wit saturating the story of police chief Marge Gunderson.
Minnesota in winter. Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) has financial troubles and makes the completely logical decision to have his wife kidnapped and ransomed for her father’s money. The hired men are the “funny looking »
