Ladies And Gentlemen: 20 Great Movie Speeches

6 August 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The greatest movie speeches are vitally important, and difficult to achieve. They are important because – when used at just the right moment – they draw the audience in, galvanise their emotional connection to the plot, and thrust the narrative forward. They are difficult to achieve because it is not just about the writing – though that is crucial. The greatest movie speeches are the result of many elements combining in the perfect way to create an iconic moment. They are about the writing, the performance, the direction, the score, and the editing. When you watch a great movie speech, you are glimpsing each and every production department working in concert to deliver a powerful moment within the story.

There have been hundreds of these thrilling scenes throughout the history of cinema, with many features written about them over the years. Many are legendary – and rightfully so. Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men. »

Susan Sarandon & Jimmy Kimmel's 'Thelma & Louise' Selfie and Melissa McCarthy's Jetski Fail Lead Our Late Night Roundup (Video)

3 July 2014 12:27 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Didn't stay up for Wednesday night's late night talk shows? Moviefone's got you covered. Here's some of what you might have missed:

Proving that recreating a famous selfie is too much fun to pass up, host Jimmy Kimmel got in on the act with Susan Sarandon by dressing up as Geena Davis and posing with Sarandon against a green screen to re-do the iconic "Thelma & Louise" self-portrait. "We invented [the selfie], definitely, at that moment," Sarandon said of the 1991 flick. While Kimmel and his crew did an excellent job getting the little details -- including Davis's mole -- just right, the host admitted that in his scraggly wig, "I look more like the guy from White Snake" than Davis.

Sarandon, stopping by "Kimmel" to promote her role as Melissa McCarthy's grandmother in "Tammy," also told the host that she's about to become a real-life grandmother for the first time in August, »

When Michael Haffner reviewed Draft Day here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote: “A sign of a good sports film is if the audience enthusiastically cheers during a film like a crowd at a live sporting event.

Is Kevin Costner Hollywood's most underrated movie star?

21 June 2014 1:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin Costner is back on the big screen this week in action-thriller 3 Days to Kill. It's not a classic Costner film by any stretch (he's essentially playing Liam Neeson in Taken), but the film is arriving right in the middle of a career revival for the actor who headlined big hits two decades ago. With Man of Steel, Draft Day, Jack Ryan and 3 Days all under his belt over the last 12 months, we're experiencing something of a Costnaissance (to swipe a term coined for Matthew McConaughey).

As a screen star Costner was never blessed with dynamic range or the ability to transform himself like a Daniel Day-Lewis can, but what he can deliver is a performance of earnestness and honesty that connects with an audience. He is frequently the glue that holds a film together, a movie star with the everyman appeal of someone like James Stewart. If anything, Costner »

Roadside Attractions has released three new images and trailer for their upcoming film, Life Of Crime.

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life Of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch.

Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, yasiin bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Tim RobbinsLife Of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

Exclusive: 'Killer Of Sheep' Star Henry G. Sanders Will Play Cager Lee In Ava DuVernay's 'Selma'

1 May 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I sadly can't say that I've kept fully abreast of Henry G. Sanders' acting career, since his star-turn in Charles Burnett's 1979 magnum opus Killer Of Sheep; But, a glance at his IMDb resume informs me that he's certainly been busy over the the years, albeit in what would be described as *bit* parts in TV and film projects - small screen classics like Hill Street Blues, Diff'rent Strokes, Murder, She Wrote, Miami Vice, Cagney & Lacey, Matlock, L.A. Law, and Grey's Anatomy, most recently, and on the big screen in Bull Durham, the American remake of Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless, and, just last year, the Jackie Robinson bio 42.

The 101 Best Sports Movies of All Time

20 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.

And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

Film Review: ‘Draft Day’ is Daft, Except as an NFL Infomercial

11 April 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Kevin Costner has defined a career in sports themed movies. From the Iowa farmer building a baseball diamond in “Field of Dreams,” to “Bull Durham,” to “For the Love of the Game,” he exemplified game day heroics. Yet being an NFL executive in “Draft Day” isn’t quite as exciting.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The problem with this film’s story is like the problem with the NFL – they’ve gotten so rich and powerful they lose perspective on “it’s just a game.” By creating a domestic drama centered around an over zealous day of drafting college players, they’ve gone as far away from the tradition of tough guys like Vince Lombardi as a 90 yard field goal attempt. It’s no good! Note: I have a slavish devotion to the sport as entertainment – Go Bears! – I just didn’t like the film.

Movie Review: Draft Day Knows That Any Good Sports Movie’s Gotta Have Heart

11 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Ivan Reitman has always worked best with a charismatic front man. Back when he had Bill Murray star in his films (Ghostbusters, Stripes, Meatballs), sloppy timing and bantamweight premises were part of the charm: There are worse directorial strategies than “get out of Murray’s way and let him do his magic.” But such an approach falters when, say, a lumbering Arnold Schwarzenegger is the star (Kindergarten Cop). And though Kevin Costner could have been the right guy to work with Reitman during the actor's Bull Durham era, these days his famous lopsided smile has been supplanted by an omnipresent scowl. And that does not a good Reitman movie make.Draft Day boasts a certain charm anyway — if only because its real star is football, a game with enough appeal to go around. Costner is Sonny Weaver Jr., a fictional Cleveland Browns’ general manager, and you can blame his petulant »

Draft Day | Review

Final Draft: Reitman’s By the Numbers Sports Drama

Director Ivan Reitman leaves behind the realm of rom-com for a masculine about-face with the football drama, Draft Day, which, as you can rightfully assume, takes place on the eponymous day, its clock kicking off thirteen hours before the grand finale. Screenwriters Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph takes deliberate pains in dumbing down the behind-the-scenes process that goes on, which will certainly help engage complete strangers to the realm, though this is hardly a realistic inside look at anything more than your conventional sports drama about a down-on-his-luck dude who manages to outsmart everyone despite dubious popular opinion.

The countdown to Draft Day has begun, and this year, Seattle holds the number one pick as well as the current top star, quarterback Bo Callahan (Josh Pence). However, the Seattle manager, Tom Michaels (Patrick St. Espirit) thinks he can oversell Callahan to a desperate team, »

10 April 2014 9:06 PM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

If you read an outline of Draft Day it might strike you as formulaic and overlong, because it is…yet somehow it still works. Director Ivan Reitman—the same man who gave us Ghostbusters thirty years ago—steers an expert cast through its paces, with Kevin Costner in a tailor-made leading role. The actor has had good luck with sports stories dating back to Bull Durham and Field of Dreams, and this one continues his overall winning streak in the genre. Costner plays the much-abused general manager of the Cleveland Browns whose standing with fans and continued employment are in jeopardy on the day of the NFL draft pick. His father, a beloved coach, has just died, and his girlfriend...

Forecast: 'Rio 2,' 'Captain America' Could Both Reach $40 Million This Weekend

10 April 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Animated sequel Rio 2 could cruise to around $40 million this weekend, which would put it in a close race for first place against Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Meanwhile, Draft Day and Oculus are targeting more modest debuts.Captain America: The Winter Soldier set an April record last weekend with $95 million. Most comic book movies fall hard in their second weekends: similar movies Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World fell 58 percent and 57 percent, respectively. Captain America has better reviews and stronger word-of-mouth, though it would still be surprising if it dropped less than 50 percent. Playing at 3,948 locations, Rio 2 could give the Captain a run for its money. The first Rio opened to $39.2 million around the same time in 2011, and ultimately closed with a solid $143.6 million. While it was well-liked enough, its reputation doesn't seem to suggest a huge bump for the sequel.Rio 2 shifts the action »

Watch Kevin Costner Play Catch With Himself

Kevin Costner loves sports. The star, who plays a football general manager in the new movie "Draft Day," has long been a staple in sports movies. While we're sure he likes football, it's clear his greatest love of all is baseball. After all, he starred in "Field of Dreams," "Bull Durham" and "For Love of the Game." So naturally, we wondered: What would it be like if all of his baseball-playing characters had a catch? ...

'Bull Durham' vs. 'Field of Dreams': What's Kevin Costner's Best Sports Movie?

9 April 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

It wouldn't be a proper Kevin Costner renaissance without a sports movie on his docket, and fortunately there's one such addition to the actor's resume opening this Friday.  Following his turns in superhero and action movies in the past year, Draft Day puts Costner in an NFL-set drama. Outside of conversations his characters have in Swing Vote and Three Days to Kill, this is actually his first foray into football territory. Mostly he's known for baseball movies, with two in particular being the fan favorites: Bull Durham and Field of Dreams. Released a year apart, they're quite different in spite of their shared pasttime, the former a love story and the latter a fantasy. When we polled users on Twitter for the answer to which is the best, though, Durham...

Spotlight on the Stars: Kevin Costner

8 April 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we go with another installment of my Spotlight on the Stars series. Each week, I’ll look at an actor/actress/filmmaker that I’d like to celebrate in some kind of a way. It could be due to something of theirs coming out that weekend (like last week and this week, for example) or just because I feel they deserve to have a moment in the sun, but each time it’ll be a bit of positivity about someone who I’d like to pay tribute to. For this week’s piece (number three overall so far), I wanted to take a look at our first male actor…Kevin Costner. Some see him as a bit of a has been, but I disagree and not only still see a movie star, but an underrated actor as well. Costner is a throwback to an older generation of actor. Very »
