In the film Michael Pitt and Nina Arianda star as “a couple who brazenly steal from mob-run social clubs in New York City until they stumble upon a coveted list of every mafioso in town and become the prey of the feds, the mob and their own families.”
This seems a little out of the box for Romano considering he’s mostly associated with comedies, but that’s not to say that his role isn’t a comedic one. Either way it’s nice to see him trying something different. If you haven’t already, watch Romano in Men of A Certain Age. You won’t regret it. TNT cancelled the show a while ago, but you can still catch it OnDemand. »

This has been soft-launched over at Thn Videos and You Tube over the weekend, posted smack in between the »

-- Charli Xcx may not be a household name, but if you're a fan of HBO's "Girls" then you would have heard her vocal and songwriting prowess already.
The British singer co-wrote Icona Pop's "I Love It," which features in a hedonistic clubbing scene in the second season of the show. Charli Xcx's debut album, "True Romance," also fits in with that vibe with songs focusing mainly on optimism with a youthful detachment, which is hardly surprising considering the girl is only 20.
However irrelevant age is to music, an immaturity shines through in Charli's lyrics, which are often nonsensical and annoying.
Musically, however, the record is varied. "What I Like" opens with an almost techno beat. "Take My Hand" opens with a pounding rhythm and then merges into electronica that could have been taken directly from an `80s computer game, and the combination of pounding bass and twinkling synth is pretty addictive. »
To complement the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Ruben Fleischer’s all-star period crime-thriller, Gangster Squad, Thn have picked our own top team of organised crime figures from the world of cinema; both fictional and factual. The genre is well defined thanks to early Cagney classics, Coppola’s legendary Corleone trilogy and Scorcese’s blood-soaked biopics. We’ve assembled quite an eclectic collection of memorable members, from low-level hoods, to fierce footsoldiers, unpredictable capo’s and of course, one don to rule them all!
One quick rule before we begin: a film or actor can feature no more than twice.
So, let’s take a look and see who sleeps with the fishes and who’s king of the hill in our dream team!
Luca Brasi (The Godfather) 1971
Make him an offer he can’t refuse and this hulking, simple-minded, yet faithful hatchet man will follow orders, even if it costs him his life. »

It only happens once a year officially, but any devoted pothead will tell you that 420 happens at least once a day. For the uninitiated, 420 is a term used primarily in North America that refers to the consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture.
Man, that sounded kinda smart, no? Anyway, observances based on the number 420 include smoking pot around the time 4:20 p.m. (and/or 4:20 a.m.) as well as on today's date, April 20th (4/20). In celebration of the wacky stoners who have died (or sometimes lived) in some of our favorite horror flicks, we present to you our Top 5. There would have been 10, but our short-term memory sucks lately.

He’s one of cinemas most intense performers and one of my all-time favourite movie icons, but Oscar-winner Christopher Walken has more in his locker than a menacing thousand-yard stare and gravity-defying hair-do. This week sees the UK DVD and Blu-ray release of Martin McDonagh’s brilliant black comedy, Seven Psychopaths, in which Walken steals the show from under the nose of Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, as a loveable dog-napping petty crook, devoted pal and husband.
Over his 60 year career, which currently features over 12o credits, he’s featured in superhero blockbuster Batman Returns, gothic horror Sleepy Hollow; taken on suave British super spy 007 in A View To A Kill; chased rodents and marsupials in family favourites, Mousehunt and Kangaroo Jack, and tripped the light fantastic in Fatboy Slim’s memorable music video for Weapon Of Choice. Now Thn has picked out some of our favourite, and »

Christopher Walken. Who doesn't love the guy, am I right? He's been in some of the most memorable movies in some of the most memorable scenes and is still going strong today. Walken has brought intense rage and intensity in films like The Deer Hunter and Sleepy Hollow, a quiet, cool resolve in films like True Romance and Pulp Fiction, and a soft, tender stature in films like Catch Me If You Can and The Country Bears. Oh, you didn't know he was in that? Well, that's because no one saw it. »

You are unlikely to meet anyone who doesn’t have some kind of love for Christopher Walken. The actor appeals to nearly all audiences – whether appearing in a heavyweight dramatic role or a throwaway comic turn – chances are he’s the only thing you are talking about after seeing one of his films.
He’s an old fashioned eccentric, something that can be seen from his distinct vocal character, quirky demeanor and unparalleled acting charisma. With countless awards to his name (including an Academy Award and a BAFTA), Walken remains a force adored by critics and audiences alike. Even sixty years after his screen debut, Walken’s career is still going strong with the actor dabbling in mainstream roles as well as a variety of independent features.
As his latest feature, A Late Quartet gets its UK release on the 5th April, we look back at the best and worst of Walken’s career… »

Kirsten Dunst was only 11 when she took a role in Interview with the Vampire opposite Tom Cruise (Sexiest Man Alive, ’90) and Brad Pitt (Sexiest Man Alive, ’95). Playing an immortal child-vampire with an eerie maturity, Dunst actually got to kiss Pitt during filming. You would have thought that this would have made her feel like the luckiest little girl in the whole gosh darn world. But in an interview with Bullett magazine, Dunst reveals that kiss was “just a peck,” and it wasn’t even a particularly memorable peck. “Everyone at the time was like, ‘You’re so lucky you kissed Brad Pitt, »

As I prepare for the season three finale of The Walking Dead, I decided to list off my favourite moments so far. Anyone who listens to our Walking Dead Podcast knows I am by far, the most positive, and while I acknowledge the many things the series does wrong (all in script form), I can’t deny how much I love the show. Here are the ten best moments of the first half of season three. I’ll be posting the second half of the list on the day of the season three finale.
10: “Sick” – A couple’s last moments together
Rick and Lori’s exchange on the bridge was one of the most heartfelt moments between the two so far in the series. How rare is it to see good writing, good dialogue and good performances come from the dysfunctional couple. The writers worked hard to rebuild Lori, »

Spring Breakers tells of college freshmen Brit (Ashley Benson), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Cotty (Rachel Korine) and Faith (Selena Gomez), best friends since grade school who are hungry for adventure. They rob a restaurant to finance a spring break trip to Florida where they encounter a drug dealing rapper named “Alien” (James Franco) who provides the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for and a week they will never forget.
Of course, that’s not really what Spring Breakers is about. The appeal is the sexual chaos of nihilistic teens with wasted minds and teeny bikinis and what the movie is really about is the perverse enticement of watching Disney TV princesses, the stars of Wizards of Waverly Place, Pretty Little Liars, and High School Musical, looking slutty while dancing, drugging, firing automatic weapons, and making out in skimpy outfits for 90 minutes. Three of these young actresses »

We love awesomely made fan art. Keep the subpar stuff to yourself, thank you very much. For the former, meet London-based designer Sharm Murcia who created these "Penguin style book covers re-imagined" for Quentin Tarantino movies. Clockwise from the top left: Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Django Unchained, Inglorious Basterds, Death Proof, Kill Bill: Vol. 2 and Kill Bill: Vol. 1. Our favorite cover is Reservoir Dogs. If you don't agree, well, prepare to meet the business end of samurai sword. »
"He wanted to die with me and I dreamed of being lost forever in his arms." -- Sissy Spacek in “Badlands.” When you think of lovers and killers on the lam, you think of roadtrip movies like “True Romance,” “Natural Born Killers,” “Bonnie & Clyde” or "The Getaway." But when philosopher, journalist renaissance man turned filmmaker Terrence Malick tackled the genre for his debut picture, he created a picture more interested in innocence (and its loss) and love, than the crimes and acts of violence occurring within the story based on Charles Starkweather’s late ‘50s killing spree. A lyrical and impressionistic take on a troubled young killer and the girl that falls for him -- perhaps all the more chilling for it’s beautiful imagery and sublime/naive view of life that some of us still argue is his finest work to date -- “Badlands” would launch the career of »
