Some People Are Not Watching American Sniper Responsibly

1 hour ago

American Sniper dominated the box office during its opening weekend and set a number of records in the process. In addition, it has been nominated for a total of six Oscars, including for Bradley Cooper.s performance as the deadliest sniper in U.S. history, Chris Kyle. However, it.s also sparked a number of controversies in the process, and another one has unfortunately popped up. According to the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, which is the largest Arab civil rights organization in America, there.s been a dramatic increase in the number of "serious threats" made against Arab and Muslim Americans. Most of these messages were perpetrated on Twitter and Facebook, with direct references to American Sniper. As pointed out by Reuters, one tweet called Arabs "vermin scum," while others have included threats of death. To quell some of this resurrected bigotry towards Arabs and Muslims, Adc President Samer Khalaf wrote »

1 hour ago

Johnny Depp used to be a guaranteed win at the box office. That's no longer the case. The truth behind his box office slump as of late isn't proof that he's a bad actor, as he's more than capable of putting in some stellar performances when under the right direction. However, his last couple of films have given him more than enough free reign, without the restraint that refines his performances into the more watchable gems of the past. This phenomenon has come to a head with Depp's latest box office failure, the insta-fail known as Mortdecai, and there's one scene in the whole film that makes it painfully obvious. This, for Depp, marks rock bottom. In Mortdecai, the titular character is tasked with recovering a stolen painting that is also the target of an infamous terrorist. Once in his possession, the terrorist is planning to sell the painting and »

She.s Funny That Way Trailer: Jennifer Aniston's New Movie Looks Really, Really Bad

14 hours ago

When a lot of talented people decide to come together on a project, the first instinctual thought is: it must be good! Why would they all sign on if they didn't each see something in the film? Unfortunately, that idea doesn't always come to its logical conclusion, and there are many titles out there that are far from being the sum of their parts. From the looks of its first trailer, Peter Bogdanovich's She's Funny That Way appears to be one of these titles. It's entirely plausible that this is just a really terrible trailer for what winds up being a passable movie, but it's honestly hard to feel anything positive towards this film. Peter Bogdanovich is a terrific filmmaker, and there is obviously some ensemble work going on here - Owen Wilson, Jennifer Aniston, Imogen Poots, Rhys Ifans, Will Forte, Kathryn Hahn, and Michael Shannon just to name »
