4 hours ago

This year, 2014, marks the 55th Anniversary of the character who put a spell on young “Sleeping Beauty” in the animated feature released by Disney in 1959.

Since her introduction, Maleficent has been Disney’s all-­‐time most popular villain. Now she returns in this live – action version of the classic story – and there’s a lot about her we never knew. “I loved Maleficent when I was a little girl,” says Angelina Jolie. “She was my favorite Disney character. I was afraid of her and I loved her.”

“It was important to me as a director to retain enough of the elements of ‘Sleeping Beauty’ so that people who are fans of the original won’t be disappointed when they see this,” explains director Robert Stromberg. “I felt it was important that people not only see this classic character realized in a new light but also see the genesis of some »

Dom Hemingway – The Review

7 hours ago

Oh, the curse of being an attractive film star! Nobody takes you seriously. Those poor, pretty people! Enough with the bitter sarcasm, I know, but there’s more than a bit of truth in it, especially for actresses. Often Oscar has rewarded them for “glamming-down”! Charlize Theron gained weight, wore fake choppers, and endured hours in the make-up chair for Monster and took home the gold as did Nicole Kidman when she donned a phony “schnozzola” in The Hours. And there’s reward in tackling a role from the down-trodden classes as Halle Berry did in Monster’S Ball. Of course, this is not exclusive actress strategy. Brad Pitt scored a nomination for his twitchy turn in 12 Monkeys and just a few weeks ago mega-hunk Matthew McConaghuey grabbed Best Actor for going gaunt and sickly for Dallas Buyers Club. With Dom Hemingway Brit glamour guy Jude Law has forsaken his »

Cavemen – The Blu Review

15 April 2014 8:40 PM, PDT

Review by Sam Moffitt

Charlie Kaufman has a lot to answer for. His multi level style of screen writing now has multiple imitators.  Witness if you will a little film called Cavemen. In the style of Charlie Kaufman’s screen play for Adaptation and other films, we see a young, urban professional named Dean struggle to write a screen play, bounce ideas off some unnamed friends, present his screen play to a way too convincing Hollywood producer (very well played by Jason Patric) and struggle to live through the incidents that will come to make up the screen play we see him write, and that we also see being performed in front of our eyes.

Not quite as engaging as Kaufman’s style Cavemen does have its fun moments, but, well…

Dean and three of his friends have figured out how to keep the frat boy life style going well »

Heaven Is For Real – The Review

15 April 2014 8:02 PM, PDT

When you die and go to heaven will you really see your late loved ones, sit on Jesus’ lap, and get serenaded by angels? That’s exactly how Colton Burp described his trip to the afterworld after an out-of-body experience when he was four years old. His father Todd, a pastor in Imperial Nebraska, shared his son’s experience in the family-friendly book Heaven Is For Real which was a surprise best-seller on the Christian circuit and now here comes the film version. Heaven Is For Real is as wholesome and square as it sounds. No profanity. No sex. No violence. That’s its hook. Unpretentious and plainspoken, it knows its target Christian audience well.

The plot of Heaven Is For Real is disarmingly simple and there appears to be no question regarding the general circumstances themselves. The Burpos are a classic wholesome American family from the heartland, hardworking and faithful. »

15 April 2014 4:37 PM, PDT

Actor Paul Walker’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, will fill in for some of the scenes in Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious 7.

On Tuesday, the film’s official Facebook page made this statement.

A Note to the Fans of Fast & Furious:

The Fast & Furious saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. It certainly defines how we feel about our fans.

Our family experienced an unthinkable shock in November. We had to take time to grieve Paul, the brother we love and lost, and to figure out if we should move on with our film.

We came together and all felt the only choice was to continue. We believe our fans want that, and we believe Paul would want that too. Paul had already shot his »

Nymphomaniac : Volume 2 – The Review

15 April 2014 4:21 PM, PDT

Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac : Volume 2 takes us on a dark journey down the second half of a nymphomaniacs tale of lust, desire, and pain.

Nymphomaniac : Volume 2 picks up right where Joe (Charlotte Gainsbourge) left off as delves deeper about her into her life as a nymphomaniac to stranger named Seligman (Stellan Skarsgard) who had found her bloody and beaten in an ally. This half of the story begins with her discovering new love with her old fling Jerome (Shia Labeouf) and eventually starting a family with him, but the film starts to become quite darker than the first as Joe loses her ability to achieve orgasm and goes to drastic, and even dangerous lengths to find pleasure again.

For reference, here is my review of Nymphomaniac : Volume 1

As I stated in my previous review, most people assume that Lars von Trier is going to fill this »
