‘A Cat Named Leonard’ VOD Review

3 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ralph Macchio, Gina Gershon, David Zayas, Paul Sorvino, Sean Young, Jeff Kober | Written and Directed by Anthony Tarsitano

Wow, Ralph freaking Macchio… I’ve got to admit, it’s been some time since I saw Daniel Larusso in a movie. So of course I was gonna sit down and watch this flick! But what I did not expect was to find a whole cast of actors that maybe never set the world on fire but I have a certain affinity for.

A Cat Named Leonard is one of those bottle movies that takes place over one day, spending time with various different characters that you just know (because Movies) will all somehow connect to each other at some point or other, you know like Crash, Kids, Clerks, or any other movie of its nature these are just the ones come to mind.

We start the flick by meeting Dominic »

Martin Scorsese says The Irishman will have a different tone to Goodfellas

18 May 2017 4:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having received the greenlight from Netflix, acclaimed director Martin Scorsese is currently gearing up for production on The Irishman, his long-gestating biopic of Frank Sheeran, a labour union official with mob ties who claimed to be responsible for the murder of Teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa.

The Irishman is set to reunite Scorsese with frequent collaborators Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci (while Al Pacino is also attached to star), but despite its cast and genre, the filmmaker is keen to stress that it won’t be a redo of his earlier mob classics Goodfellas or Casino.

“I think this is different, I think it is,” Scorsese tells The Independent. “I admit that there are – you know, Goodfellas and Casino have a certain style that I created for them – it’s on the page in the script actually. Putting Goodfellas together was almost like an afterthought, at times I was kind of rushing, »

‘The Irishman’ Will Be Very Different from ‘Goodfellas,’ Explains Martin Scorsese

A stylish period thriller about love, betrayal, violence and the Mafia starring Robert de Niro and Joe Pesci: Goodfellas or The Irishman? Scorsese is aware of the similarities between his classic gangster movie and his upcoming Mafia hitman film, which is set to be produced by Netflix. But just because he’s treading familiar and comfortable […]

Mob Drama The Irishman Will Be “A Little Different” Than Martin Scorsese’s Other Gangster Pics

12 May 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Don’t expect another Goodfellas or Casino from long-in-development mob drama, The Irishman.

That’s the message from Martin Scorsese, after the esteemed filmmaker told The Independent that his long-brewing gangster pic is “a little different” when compared to his other body of work. Marking his ninth – ninth! – collaboration with Robert De Niro, The Irishman has tapped Gangs of New York scribe Steve Zaillian to adapt Charles Brandt’s true-crime novel, I Heard You Paint Houses.

If you’re unfamiliar with the source material in question – and really, it’s worth a nosy – Brandt’s page-turner documents the deathbed story of renown mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, who developed a reputation on the streets once it emerged that he held insider knowledge relating to the disappearance and subsequent death of Jimmy Hoffa. It’s an engrossing saga of betrayal and the criminal underworld – and right up Scorsese’s alley, »

Great Job, Internet!: Watch The Rock star in sequels to Goodfellas, Home Alone, and more

12 May 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Hot on the heels of his very casual announcement that he may want to be president someday, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is back in your feeds to prove he can do more than be incredibly handsome, incredibly strong, incredibly charming, and incredibly successful. He can be funny, too!

In a new video from GQ’s Comedy Issue, Johnson takes a meeting with his “agent”—played by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Tituss Burgess—where he is offered roles in a series of poorly thought-out sequels to Hollywood classics. From Joe Pesci’s illegitimate son in Goodfellas 2 to the lead in The Revenant remake rewritten by the writers of The Notebook, these roles find the Ballers star sporting some very unfortunate wigs and require him to perform acts well outside the Dwayne Johnson brand (i.e., kid-punching and bestiality). Clearly, this sketch takes place in an alternate universe where Johnson doesn ...

Martin Scorsese Teases Gangster Drama ‘The Irishman,’ Says Not To Expect Another ‘Goodfellas’

Martin Scorsese’s next film,”The Irishman,” marks his ninth collaboration with actor Robert De Niro. And, while Scorsese’s fans might be hoping for another “Goodfellas” or “Casino,” the director says his upcoming Netflix ganster drama — which stars De Niro as Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a mob hitman who’s rumored to be involved in the deaths of President Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa — will be “a little different.”

Scorsese: The Irishman will be tonally different to Goodfellas, Casino

12 May 2017 7:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As you may have read recently, Martin Scorsese is about to start shooting his $100 million true story The Irishman later this year, a film which will reunite him with Robert De Niro for a gangster opus spanning a number of decades.

The film will be based on Charles Brandt’s ‘I Heard You Paint Houses’ and it will also star Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and Bobby Cannavale. Although it is a crime movie, it sounds like the film will be very different to Scorsese’s previous movies Goodfellas and Casino. He revealed all to The Independent.

“I think this is different, I think it is. I admit that there are – you know, Goodfellas and Casino have a certain style that I created for them – it’s on the page in the script actually,” he said.

Martin Scorsese Says Don’t Expect Another ‘Goodfellas’ With ‘The Irishman’

12 May 2017 6:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While there are plenty of people who might call themselves Martin Scorsese fans, few of them showed up this winter for the director’s intense, spiritual drama “Silence.” As revered as the director might be, mainstream appreciation tends to only follow when he’s making more broadly entertaining pictures like the bawdy “The Wolf Of The Wall Street” or the gritty (and Oscar-winning) “The Departed.” And then there’s “Goodfellas,” easily his most popular movie ever, and for many, the kind of picture they want Scorsese to make again.

Master of None” Season 2, Netflix

Episode Title: Season 2 (10 episodes)

Network Synopsis: Best known for his role on the award-winning series “Parks and Recreation,” comedian Aziz Ansari stars, writes, and directs “Master of None,” a new Netflix original comedy series loosely based on his own life experiences. “Master of None” follows the personal and professional lives of Dev, a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life.

Watch The Rock Reboot Home Alone, Goodfellas and Napoleon Dynamite

11 May 2017 11:58 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's hard to argue against the logic that Dwayne Johnson is the biggest movie star in the world these days, especially after a report from last year that revealed he is now the highest-paid actor in all 7 continents. The actor even has a pretty good sense of humor about all of his astronomical success, which is proven in a hilarious new video where he's being pitched a number of ludicrous projects by his "agent," played by Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Titus Burgess. This video shows what sequels to Home Alone, Goodfellas, Napoleon Dynamite and even The Revenant might look like, starring The Rock.

This video comes from GQ, as part of the publication's "comedy issue," which starts with The Rock coming in for a meeting with his agent, where he says there are some lucrative franchises being lined up for the actor. First up, Martin Scorsese wants The Rock to »

Movie Review – Chuck (2017)

11 May 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chuck, 2017.

Directed by Phillipe Falardeau.

Starring Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, Jim Gaffigan, Morgan Spector, Pooch Hall, Zina Wilde, Sadie Sink, and Naomi Watts.

Synopsis:

A drama inspired by the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner.

Are strong acting and unrecognizable familiar faces enough to push a film over the hump from bad to good? Usually yes, but Chuck (also known as The Bleeder in other territories) is a rare sort of misfire that only has the talent in front of the screen going for it. Directed by Phillipe Falardeau (The Good Lie and Monsieur Lazhar), notable names such as Liev Schreiber, Elisabeth Moss, Ron Perlman, and more have all gone through impressive physical transformations, whether it be from physical makeovers to New Jersey accents and more, and while they all generally seem to be firing on all cylinders including having excellent chemistry with one another (Naomi Watts, the »

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s latest film, “The Fate of the Furious,” opened in theaters April 14 and has grossed over $1 billion worldwide. Now, the actor is ready for his next big movie role. In a video he shot for GQ Magazine, for which he graces the cover of the June issue, the actor stars in imaginary sequels or some famous movie franchises, and the result is simply hilarious.

In the video, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” actor Tituss Burgess plays Johnson’s agent, who cannot come up with one good idea for a movie in which the actor should star. “Martin Scorsese wants you for ‘Goodfellas 2,'” Burgess says. “You play Joe Pesci’s illegitimate son who moves to Queens trying to make it in the comedy scene.”

Robert De Niro slammed President Donald Trump‘s government in a fiery speech as he accepted the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 44th Chaplin Award, a lifetime achievement honor that has previously been bestowed on Audrey Hepburn, Al Pacino and Meryl Streep.

After thanking the film society for his award on Monday evening, joking that the organization waited until the release of Dirty Grandpa to give it to him, the Goodfellas star turned political, according to an Entertainment Weekly transcript.

Jonathan Demme Appreciation: A Filmmaker Who Turned His Humanity Into Art

26 April 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The great filmmakers who came to prominence in the 1970s — and Jonathan Demme, who died Wednesday, was one of them — had stylistic traits that made them iconically identifiable. Robert Altman had his multi-character hubbub, Martin Scorsese had his volcanic rock ‘n’ roll virtuosity, and Francis Ford Coppola had his lavishly scaled operatic grandeur. But Demme, vivid and stirring as his filmmaking voice was, had no such obvious signature. You could almost say that he was defined by his lack of signature.

What defined a Demme film was the open-eyed flow of its humanity, the way his camera drank in everyone on screen — it didn’t matter whether the character was a goofy truck driver, a derelict billionaire, the troubled wife of a mobster, a new wave rock ‘n’ roller, or a serial killer — and took the full measure of their life and spirit. For Demme, the magic of movies resided »
