The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

Going The Distance Blu-Ray Review

30 December 2010 12:46 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Pointedly going for some sense of honesty and "reality" not often seen among the standard fare of romantic comedies, Going the Distance frequently loses itself to this effort, which feels false (and vulgar for the sake of vulgarity) more often than it describes the truth it's after.

Though the film would have benefited greatly from a few more minds scrutinizing many of the details (it is written by new comer Geoff Latulippe, and directed by Nanette Burstein, who only has documentaries under her belt to this point), there is an underlying gravity that pulls the audience along, even if it is offered few chances to take center stage.

It's the story of a long-distance relationship, thoroughly entrenched in being for and about the exact age demographic of its actors, but it manages to conquer its own shtick and make some keen observations about relationships in general. Chiefly, in respect to the long-distance classic question, »

Lr's THe Blu Room: Going The Distance Blu-Ray Review

30 December 2010 12:14 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Going The Distance (Blu-ray)Warner/New Line Home Video2010/Rated R/Running Time 103 minsList Price $35.99 – Now AvailableGoing the Distance was one of the last surprises of what was a mediocre summer for 2010. The Drew Barrymore and Justin Long romantic comedy treats the subject of a long distance relationship in a manner that's sweet, hilarious and surprisingly mature. No doubt the picture's strong suit is the onscreen relationship between its two leads and that's obviously due in large part to the fact that they were once a real life couple. But their onscreen love story is given hilarious support by SNL's Jason Sudeikis, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Charlie Day and a genuinely funny Christina Applegate as Barrymore's over-protective older sibling.Even if you've never been in a long distance relationship we can all certainly relate to it. You're unexpectedly driven apart from your significant other or develop feelings »

‘The Mechanic’ starring Jason Statham – trailer review

29 December 2010 8:44 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Mechanic

Directed by: Simon West

Starring: Jason Statham, Ben Foster, Donald Sutherland

Rating: R

Release Date: January 28, 2011

Trailer Score: 8/10

My Thoughts: I’m not sure anybody’s ever been to a Jason Statham movie thinking they were walking into a thought-provoking drama or the next Citizen Kane. Let’s face it, the guys track record is a little less than stellar. I mean, Revolver? That was a bad day for Statham and Guy Ritchie. but that’s neither here nor there. The point is, with Jason Statham comes certain expectations. Violence, explosions, perhaps a certain gratuitous sex scene?

The Mechanic promises all this and more. It’s like your annual dose of testosterone wrapped up in one package. The story is somewhat lacking, with a pretty basic structure. Jason Statham takes a “kid” under his wing for personal reasons and a whole bunch of wackiness ensues. But, like I said, »

Who’S It For? Guys, are you sick of sitting through romantic comedy crap like The Back-up Plan and Leap Year? Yes, you are, and so are most women though they have a tougher time admitting it. This romance gives you reality, charm and funny.

Movie:

With Going the Distance, the title is the only bad part. This isn’t a sports movie. But let’s move on to the good stuff.

Two New Character Banners for Hall Pass

27 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Here’s a couple of new posters for Owen Wilson’s new movie, Hall Pass!

The cast in the movie is rather extensive and great and includes Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Jenna Fischer, Richard Jenkins, Christina Applegate, Alexandra Daddario, Stephen Merchant, Nicky Whelan, Larry Joe Campbell, Tyler Hoechlin, Derek Waters, Alyssa Milano, Vanessa Angel and Kristin Carey.

Synopsis: Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalizing their individual marriages: granting them a “hall pass,” one week of freedom to do whatever they want…no questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But it isn’t long before »

Two new banner posters for ‘Hall Pass’

24 December 2010 11:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Here’s two new banner posters (via Impa) for Hall Pass, the latest film from the Farrelly Brothers – and one film I’ve been excited to see since it was first announced way back in January.

Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeikis) are best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives (Jenna Fischer, Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalizing their individual marriages: granting them a “hall pass,” one week of freedom to do whatever they want…no questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But it isn’t long before they discover that their expectations of the single life-and themselves-are completely, and hilariously, out of sync with reality.

'Saturday Night Live': Jeff Bridges, Cookie Monster and Lil Wayne under the mistletoe

19 December 2010 2:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Dreams really do come true. Cookie Monster parlayed his viral bid to host "Saturday Night Live" into an oddly sincere musical number during host Jeff Bridges' Dec. 18 monologue. And Lil Wayne, freshly out of jail, got to perform with previously scheduled musical guest Eminem.

So with all of the cameos, was this last "SNL" of 2010 the Christmas present we'd asked for? Not at all. But we sure did love that digital short.

The White House Christmas Cold Open

Is it an unwritten rule that "SNL" cold opens need to be political? There was little hook this week, but given the fact that 2011 brings a Republican majority in the House, at least we got this last pseudo-relevant opportunity for Kristen Wiig to play Nancy Pelosi. Her fantasy headline of "Military To Go Exclusively Gay" juxtaposed to her wistful smirk would have made us snort up our hot cocoa, had we been drinking any. »

Blu-ray Review: Going the Distance (Starring Drew Barrymore & Justin Long)

18 December 2010 8:33 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Going the Distance may not be your typical romantic comedy, but it still has all the flare or lack thereof inherent in your run-of-the-mill rom-com. Instead of a tale about two people who couldn’t be more different falling in love, Going the Distance is about two people who quickly realize they are perfect for each other, but are forced to live lives apart. Drew Barrymore stars alongside Justin Long, as two people who couldn’t be more right for each other. While it’s hard to shake the fact that your watching a love story featuring the “I’m a Mac” guy from the Apple commercials, you quickly fall for supporting actors Christina Applegate and Charlie Day. Jason Sudeikis of SNL fame also co-stars to a lesser extent, but his role feels more like a late add on to spruce up the gags.

Erin (Barrymore) and Garrett (Long) are just getting over a breakup. »

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein poke fun of life in Portland in IFC show "Portlandia"

16 December 2010 5:00 AM, PST | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

SNL's Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney/Wild Flag have been working together for a while. They do digital shorts under the name ThunderAnt, and appeared in a video for the St. Vincent song "Laughing With A Mouth Full Of Blood." Now, this January, the two bring their comedy stylings to the IFC show Portlandia. And it looks exciting.  The sketch show has some fun with the people of Portland, Or, and anyone who has ever visited or lived in the city knows that the characters in the show aren't far off to what you actually find in the city. There are New Age-bookstore owners, Freegans, and a restaurant that has personal files on the chickens they serve.  Brownstein and Armisen take on the many parts in the show, but Portlandia will also feature guests throughout the season, including Kyle MacLachlan, Jason Sudeikis, and [...] »

[DVD Review] Going the Distance

13 December 2010 8:02 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

This movie takes a whole new direction in the romantic comedy genre that we are all so familiar with. It stars Drew Barrymore and Justin Long, who meet at a bar while Erin (Barrymore) is on her summer internship as a reporter in New York City. Garrett (Long) has just been dumped by his girlfriend and is looking for someone to hook up with. After a few drinks and meeting Garrett’s friends Dan (Charlie Day) and Box (Jason Sudeikis), Erin decides to go back to Garrett’s apartment. One thing leads to another and the next morning Erin is attempting to silently duck out of Garret’ts room but of course he catches her in the act. Over a hardy breakfast together, Garrett and Erin decide that what happened was just a one night stand and nothing more…or was it?

'Saturday Night Live': Paul Rudd's tongue-kissing, Paul McCartney still rocks

11 December 2010 10:06 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

"Saturday Night Live" welcomed two Pauls Saturday (Dec. 11) in actor Paul Rudd as host and Sir Paul McCartney as the musical guest. What did you think of the episode?

Rudd's opening monologue played upon the two Pauls bit. Rudd was excited that people were shouting his name and "I love you" and screaming all week, but they were actually shouting at Paul McCartney. We enjoyed the tiny cameo by featured player Paul Brittain, eager to get in on the Paul action.

The first Rudd skit was the kissing Vogelchecks holiday sketch, which was about a family of tongue-kissing gropers. It wasn't so much laugh-out-loud funny as it was uncomfortable, a little gross and therefore kind of awesome. What really sold it was everyone's committment to the bit. Open mouth tongue licks, passing gum from person to person. That's dedication.

There was a bizarre digital short called "Stumblin,'" where Andy Samberg »

SNL Power Rankings: Robert De Niro Makes January Jones Look Like Jon Hamm

7 December 2010 4:31 PM, PST | BestWeekEver | See recent BestWeekEver news »

It’s fair to say that a lot of memorable things have happened in each and every one of our lives since December 18, 2004: Among other things, we elected the first African-American Potus in the history of our country, we suffered through one of the worst financial crises in our nation’s history, and, of course, we learned about the mysterious origins of Justin Bieber’s tattoo. Which is to say that you’re totally forgiven if, over the course of the last six years, you forgot how bad of an SNL host Robert De Niro is. Don’t kick yourself with regret; after all, Lorne Michaels forgot, too! Yes, that’s right, it’s been six long years since the last abominable Fockers movie lowbrowed its way into our nation’s movie theaters. And now, with Little Fockers just weeks from away from ruining the holidays for families everywhere, »

We're looking back at the biggest headlines of 2010, and we'll be revealing more throughout the month of December. Here's one of the stories that created the most buzz over the past 12 months; don't miss the rest of our Best of 2010 coverage across the network! Jennifer Aniston devoted herself to new film projects and good friends in 2010.

'Saturday Night Live': Robert De Niro gets help from Ben Stiller

4 December 2010 11:03 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Robert De Niro 's hosting stint on "Saturday Night Live" on Dec. 4 is an inconsistent blend of meta humor and just plain odd moments, but with a little help from his "Little Fockers" co-star Ben Stiller, pulls together some  funny, but not really hilarious moments.

A WikiLeaks meets TMZ opening sketch is actually more clever than the opening monologue, which basically pretends that De Niro knows nothing about New York, but gets really angry in a mob-style way when he's corrected. It's kind of a weak premise, but like everything else in this episode, the more the bit wears on the sillier it becomes.

"The Abacus Conundrum"

In this commercial spoof, De Niro plays Harlan Kane, a Robert Ludlum-esque author whose book jackets take up most of the screentime. The ridiculous titles such as "The Godiva Gyroscope" and others following the Ludlum style -- including one with Pokemon -- »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray: Knight and Day, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Going the Distance, and More

1 December 2010 8:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Parks And Recreation (Season 2) My write-up of the first season [1] of Parks and Recreation amounted to little more than a prediction that the show would hit its stride in Season 2. Lo and behold, that's exactly what happened. Following a nearly identical pattern to The Office, Parks and Rec struggled through a forgettable introductory 6-episode season that mainly served to set up the characters and find the show's rhythm. I see it as the trial run to the expanded 24-episode second season, which utilizes its engaging cast to much greater comedic effect. If you gave up on it after the first season, I highly recommend giving it another chance. Available on Blu-ray? No. Notable Extras: Over two and half hours of deleted scenes, »
