This Time, It’s War: Ayer’s Latest Depiction of Men Under Fire

At last leaving behind the pulpy, sometimes overly chewy cop action/dramas he’s been churning out, David Ayer returns with his most sobering film yet, Fury, reconstituting a title previously used famously by both Fritz Lang and Brian De Palma (both for very different purposes). His most homosocial film yet, Ayer delivers a sometimes grueling slog through the horrors of war, hardly shirking away from the excessive violence of the situation, even if the sexual depravities written off as necessary casualties transpire conveniently out of sight. Sometimes pretentious and sometimes straining a bit too hard for an extra degree of pathos, it’s nonetheless an arresting film that’s often unsettling and unpredictable.

Fury” is the nickname of the M4 Sherman tank commanded by Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt), emblazoned in white paint on the barrel. »

Picking up where the big studios have been leaving off, home video label Twilight Time has for the last few years been releasing some pretty damn awesome horror flicks on Blu-ray, including the original Fright Night and Tom Savini's remake of Night of the Living Dead.

Joining them next is the 1988 version of The Blob, headed our way just in time for Halloween! As the company just revealed, October 14th will mark the Blu-ray release of The Blob.

Joining it on Blu will be a handful of other horror films, including Audrey Rose (1977), The Believers (1987), Man Hunt (1941), Under Fire (1983), and The Vanishing (1993).

Typical for Twilight Time, all of the releases will be limited with The Blob being cut off at 5,000 copies and the others limited to only 3,000.

Directed by Chuck Russell, The Blob is one of the better horror remakes we've yet seen, centering on a strange pink life »

Gwyneth Paltrow has just made another internet enemy — and this one is prepared for real-world combat. “Iron Man” actress Paltrow — who angered many earlier this week when she compared dealing with internet haters to being in war, has found herself in the sights of a Green Beret who calls out Paltrow as “narcissistic” and “laughable.” In an open letter published on Clash Daily, Brian Sikes slams the actress for the comparison.

Steve Balmer To Buy Los Angeles Clippers From Donald Sterling For $2 Billion

29 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Steve Balmer, the former Microsoft CEO, has reportedly signed an agreement to pay $2 billion dollars to the Sterling family trust for ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Steve Balmer Buying Clippers

Balmer apparently negotiated the sale with disgraced owner Donald Sterling’s wife, Shelly Sterling, reported CNN. The tech mogul reportedly initially offered the Sterlings $1.8 billion, but co-owner Shelly insisted he go up to $2 billion if he wanted the team. Though the Shelly Sterling has agreed to Balmer’s price, an NBA Board of governors will have to approve the sale.

Donald Sterling will also have to approve of the sale, according to his lawyer Maxwell Blecher. While the $2 million might be sufficient monetary payment, there’s something else he wants before he sells the team; he wants the NBA to say he’s not a racist.

“He wants to be vindicated. He doesn't want his tombstone to say, 'Here lies Donald Sterling, »

'Foxcatcher' Receives Early Oscar Buzz For Actors Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo And Steve Carell After Cannes Premiere

20 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Foxcatcher made a huge splash at the Cannes Film Festival and has inspired Oscar buzz for its stars Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Steve Carell.

Foxcatcher premiered at Cannes on Monday, May 19, and is competing for the elusive Palme d’Or. The film was already a hot topic before its premiere. Many speculated about what Carell, known for his comedic work in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Office, would do in a dramatic role. Many more debated how Tatum, an actor who became famous for his pretty face and then surprised audiences with his impressive range – 21 Jump Street, Magic Mike – would fare with such serious, dramatic material.

Cannes Parties: 11 Hottest Invites at the Festival

15 May 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

There's a list of parties kilometers long of every rinky-dink film looking for global distribution, money, or some form of attention in Cannes, but after the sun sets (and it gets cold here when that happens), these are the invites generating the most buzz. Similar to Sundance's famed party list created by Christopher Ryan, Filmtrack's Andrew Goldstein has been curating a constantly updating grid several pages long. There is no animosity between the two scene-steerers. They are friends.

Valerie Bertinelli Set To Join Food Network Daytime Lineup

22 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scripps Networks International’s flagship Food Network will unveil 20 new series across primetime and daytime in the months to come, enlisting Valerie Bertinelli for a new daytime series and expanding its “Chopped” franchise to a new teen-oriented format.

“Increasing our development slate to satiate the audience demand for entertaining and informative programming has been our focus.” said Brooke Johnson, president of Food Network and Cooking Channel, in a prepared statement.

The moves come as Wall Street monitors the parent company for signs of slowing growth. After Scripps reported its fourth-quarter results in February, media analyst Michael Nathanson noted the company’s networks are starting to deliver performance that is more tempered than what has been produced in the past. Indeed, Food Network’s average subscribers slipped to 98.8 million in 2013 from 99.5 million in 2012, according to data from SNL Kagan, while affiliate fees rose a penny per subscriber in the same period »
