We visit the Battle of the Year set in Whittier, California to speak with the cast and crew
Director Benson Lee's 2008 documentary Planet B-Boy proved that the art form of breakdancing is still alive and well today, decades after the popular dance craze started in the 1980s. The filmmaker returns to put a narrative spin on B-boying in the upcoming drama Battle of the Year, arriving in theaters September 13. Back in December 2011, I was invited to spend a day at the Whittier, California set to speak with the cast and crew of this dance-fueled drama. In case you missed it, clickHere to watch the second trailer that debuted last week.
During most movie set visits I attend, we spend the day watching scenes being shot and interviewing actors, writers, directors, producers, or whoever else is available. Due to some unfortunate scheduling complications, we didn't get to see a lot of shooting, »

Child Of God star Scott Haze has signed with International Creative Management (ICM Partners). This news comes shortly after we learnt that James Franco’s new film, As I Lay Dying, which Haze also has a role in, will be headed to the the 66th Cannes Film Festival this May.

"We inherited our freedom. Now it's up to us to fight for it". This dismal remake of the overrated '80s cult flick is littered with the type of nausea-inducing patriotic dialogue lampooned by the likes of Team America: World Police. If you turn up the volume loud enough, you can probably hear the bad guys muttering the North Korean equivalent of 'durka, durka' repeatedly.
Red Yawn (sic) does itself no favours by seeking to establish a contemporaneous framework that positions the daring premise, revolving around a sudden invasion of America by North Korean forces, as a plausible scenario. For we're bombarded with a wealth of genuine news footage at the beginning, featuring the likes of Barack Obama, Kim Jong-il and Hilary Clinton. Tapping into credible fears is fine, »
Beyond The Hills (12A)
Romanian patriarchy had a lot to answer for in Mungiu's 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days, and it's even more to blame in this powerful convent drama. It starts with a young woman coming to visit her former girlfriend, who's now a nun, but events increasingly spiral out of control, to the extent that romantic frustration is diagnosed as demonic possession… and duly treated.
Doing for Vegas-style magic what Blades Of Glory did for figure skating, Carell and co conjure just enough comedy out of a sitting-duck premise, as their cheesy stage act is threatened by Carrey's Blaine-style endurance stunts.

It seems that Hollywood’s glut of remaking classic movies is over. They’re now deigning to tackle movies that weren’t very good in the first place, as John Milius’ propaganda cheese-fest Red Dawn gets the makeover treatment this week.
Filmed around three years ago but left to rot in a studio vault until Chris Hemsworth became famous as an Avenger, Red Dawn is the most crass Hollywood production in recent memory. Furthermore, in order to gain access to China’s massive movie market, the film’s antagonists were changed from Chinese to North Korean – as opposed to the original film’s Soviet Union – in post-production.
As an opening montage sequence demonstrates, this is a film desperately trying to cobble together a front of topicality; clips of famous political figures discussing the financial crisis and Kim Jong-un’s ascent to power are however too somber in tone, »

When remaking a film, to warrant such a decision you’ve either got to improve upon what came before or at least offer something completely different. If not, then you have to cope with carrying the burden of being victim to the degrading question of, what is the bloody point? Sadly as far as Dan Bradley’s remake of the 1984 cult action flick Red Dawn is concerned, such a question lingers over the entire production.
Chris Hemsworth leads the cast as former soldier Jed Eckert, who – alongside his younger brother Matt (Josh Peck) – forms the beginning of an uprising against the brutal North Korean army who have invaded their small town. The soldiers’ random attack sees many people murdered, and while the American residents are stripped of their freedom and bullied into a strict regime, the Eckert brothers – along with a modest sized group of friends that go by the »

Director: Dan Bradley
Synopsis: A young Marine, recently returned to civilian life, leads his friends in insurgency, when their Washington city is invaded, on all fronts, by a hostile foreign power.
One of the basic tenets of the chaos theory is that events are deterministic, suggesting that, given initial conditions, events are not susceptible to randomness. However, it is this precise determinism that, paradoxically, does Not make them predictable at all, but vulnerable to… chaos. This is the key premise to director Dan Bradley’s Red Dawn.
Chris Hemsworth, (Jed Eckert) a Us Marine, has recently returned to his native Spokane, after a six year tour of duty in Iraq. His father, Tom Eckert (Brett Cullen) is the city’s chief of police. Chris’s younger brother, Matt, (Josh Peck) looks up to his older brother, whom he thinks heroic. The brothers, »

Dan Bradley’s Red Dawn was one of two shelved films sitting under layer of dust over at MGM after financial reasons caused the company to eventually sell off the properties in hopes of collecting some sort of cash. Fortunately for us the Red Dawn remake took advantage of the now-popular cast, causing the film’s release to be a mediocre event that works because of its well-staged action sequences and occasional shining moments between cast members.
Jed (Chris Hemsworth) and Matt (Josh Peck) are two brothers cut from very different cloths. Jed’s got a military background and is home on rest trying to bond with his father and younger brother Matt, while Matt simply wants nothing to do with Jed after their mother passed and he was left all alone to face the pain. Matt’s instead focused on school, his girlfriend, football and things that most young kids are tied into, »

Wreck-It Ralph John C. Reilly voices Ralph, a bulky video game villain itching to shed his bad-guy image and become a hero. The film's stellar voice cast also includes Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch, and Jack McBrayer. Chock-full of nostalgic references (think Q*bert and Sonic the Hedgehog), Wreck-It Ralph is just as much fun for adults as it is for kids. The DVD comes with the Oscar-winning short film Paperman, deleted and extended scenes, and making-of featurettes. 86% Red Dawn Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson take the reins in this remake of the 1984 action film. This time, the invading forces are North Koreans, and they take over Spokane, Wa. Lucky for Spokane, its best and brightest young adults are ready to fight for freedom. Josh Peck and Adrianne Palicki also star in the unnecessary remake that suffers from a laughable script and distinct lack of charm that the original had. The DVD include four making-of featurettes. »
