Exclusive! First Review Of Liam Neeson's New Political Drama Felt; The Watergate Movie

19 October 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Note: Our Spy recently saw a Very rough cut of this film called Felt, starring Liam NeesonDiane Lane, and Jason Bateman.

The film is currently in post production and is expected to be released in 2017. Significant changes, including reshoots, are expected, so the theatrical release version of this film will be different from the super early cut our spy saw.

Felt aims to be a taut spy thriller, centering on “Deep Throat,” the pseudonym given to the notorious whistleblower for one of the greatest scandals of all time, Watergate. The true identity of the secret informant remained a mystery and source of much public curiosity and speculation for more than 30 years. That is until, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the tipster.

Newswire: CBS is going to make it rain with a John Grisham adaptation

13 October 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

John Grisham’s work hasn’t reached the adaptation levels of Stephen King’s, but the lawyer-turned-author still has multiple movie credits to his name. And there was that The Firm TV show on NBC, in which Josh Lucas replaced Tom Cruise as the lead character in what was a sequel series to the film/book. (It was canceled after the first season). Five years later, Deadline reports that Grisham’s sold a new pilot to CBS based on another one of his novels.

This time it’s The Rainmaker that will make its way to the small screen for some serious legalese and drama. The story follows Rudy Baylor, who bootstrapped his way through law school but still makes time to help his elderly landlord with repairs, or some grieving parents with their lawsuit against a huge insurance company. The 1995 novel was adapted by Francis Ford Coppola for ...

Nicolas Cage: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

4 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 5, 2016

We dig through the ten recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Can we find a gem in there?

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical – version of love prevailed over boring old steadfast responsibility.

She would watch Dirty Dancing three or four times in a day, rewinding the ending relentlessly and bawling her eyes out. A VHS of Baby Boom was worn down until the tape resembled a type of grey, flimsy nylon. I hesitate to imagine what she was projecting with repeated viewings of Overboard, »

30 years ago today: ‘Karate Kid II’ showed us the Glory of Love

20 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, audiences were treated again to the utterly watchable pair of Daniel and Mr. Miyagi. The Karate Kid, Part II opened in theaters on June 20, 1986. In the sequel, released two years after the original film, Daniel’s wax on, wax off early training days are behind him, and he’s impressively slicing through six blocks of ice. The boy and his mentor travel together to Mr. Miyagi’s home village in Okinawa, Japan. Sparks fly between Daniel and Kumiko, the niece of Mr. Miyagi’s childhood girlfriend, to the synthesizer-tastic tune of “Glory of Love” by Peter Cetera. The song hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 later that summer and got an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. Other notable June 20 happenings in pop culture history: • 1948: The Ed Sullivan Show — then titled Toast of the Town — premiered on CBS. Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis performed in that first episode, »

7 May 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Surviving the turmoil that often arises when several generations of a family live together often leads people to think they truly know their relatives. But no matter how close in proximity parents and their children live to each other, they often don’t genuinely understand each other’s sentiments and motivations until they embark on an emotional journey together. That’s certainly the case in the new comedy-drama, ‘Youth In Oregon,’ which was written by Andrew Eisen. Actor Joel David Moore made his solo feature directorial debut on the movie, which had its world premiere during the Spotlight Section during last month’s Tribeca Film Festival. ‘Youth In Oregon’ follows Raymond Engersoll (Frank Langella),  [ Read More ]
