A former lawyer, Ryan (Elijah Wood) is an introverted and troubled young man who's struggling to make his way in the world.

While everyone else in the world sees Wilfred as just a four-legged canine, Ryan sees him as a crude and somewhat surly, yet irrepressibly brave and honest Australian guy in a cheap dog suit.

Start to feel very old, because American Pie celebrates its 15th anniversary this week. The '90s comedy classic was an instant box office hit and helped launch the careers of its leading cast.
Sequels followed, but none of them quite managed to recapture the magic of that glorious first time. There was always something vaguely comforting about American Pie - no matter how bad we had it in school, it was never quite as bad as the experiences of Jim, Oz, Finch and the gang.
To mark American Pie's birthday, Digital Spy has collected 15 of our favourite quotes from the 1999 movie below.
Jim (Jason Biggs)
1. "You realise we're all going to go to college as virgins. They probably have special dorms for people like us."
2. "Guys, uh, what exactly does third base feel like?"
3. "I would like to make an announcement - there is a gorgeous woman masturbating on my bed. »
Though based on a smash-hit jukebox tuner that won four Tonys, Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of “Jersey Boys” can’t properly be described as a full-on musical. It does often hint at becoming one, just as it hints at becoming a “La Bamba”-esque early rock study, a cautionary tale about organized crime, and a sort of “Rashomon”-influenced take on the rise of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. But by the time it hits its first real Broadway-style production number over the closing credits, “Jersey Boys” doesn’t seem to have gotten any closer to deciding what kind of movie it wants to be. Embracing neither the fizzy energy of a Vegas-ready tuner, nor the grit of a warts-and-all biopic, the film nonetheless has its own peculiar charms, and should be able to capitalize on the source material’s enduring popularity for a respectable if modest B.O. »

June 2014. So what does the month of June usually remind one of during this time of year? Well, besides Father’s Day and possible scheduled weddings this sixth month in the calendar year marks the celebrated occasion for the ending of the school semester. Whether students are simply looking forward to their summer vacation or managed to complete a milestone in graduating from said grammar school, middle school, high school or college the month of June is closely identified with the school season coming to a close (unless one can escape the doldrums of a summer school session).
So to mark this auspicious occasion we should take a look at some random films with an educational theme. Hence, “Too Cool for School: Top 10 Random Films Making the Grade” will briefly examine a selection of higher education ditties that taught us something (or perhaps nothing) during our heyday of cramming for tests. »

Brick Mansions, 2014.

An undercover Detroit cop navigates a dangerous neighborhood that’s surrounded by a containment wall with the help of an ex-con in order to bring down a crime lord and his plot to devastate the entire city.
Dancing on someone’s grave is never fun nor is it the sport of kings. Paul Walker was an actor whose meteoric rise to stardom was somewhat surprising. He was that good looking, clean cut California dude that was perfectly suited to play the heel in movies like Pleasantville or She’s All That. His ascension to marquee idol was a little less convincing. He always struck me as a low rent Keanu Reeves. Charming enough, good looking enough, but nobody you’d ever think of as a master thespian. He found big screen success »

And only we have the first look at the movie's new poster.
