It starts out with a joke stolen from The Shawshank Redemption, which runs directly into an action bit stolen from The Fugitive. Bizarrely, The Hangover Part III goes on to not steal again -- from Dude, Where’s My Car? -- the one clever conceit that made the franchise’s reputation, not to mention its name: there’s no hangover here, no mystery to be solved about the previous evening’s intoxicating adventures. It’s an odd choice for director Todd Phillips and his coscreenwriter, Craig Mazin (Identity Thief), as if they’d learned after the appalling Part II (which Mazin also cowrote) that they never should have made a sequel, so they decided that for Part III, which they also should not have made, they wouldn’t even bother to make a Hangover movie at all. Which must have seemed like a good idea at the time. Even though it’s like saying, »

In their defence, at least they sort-of listened. The major criticism of the generally pretty terrible The Hangover Part II was that it was effectively a retread of the first film, just in a different location. The pieces of the puzzle were still pretty much the same, familiarity was at the core of what jokes it could muster, and the box office tills rang loudly.
For this third, and we're told final, outing writers Craig Mazin and Todd Phillips have come up with something else for The Wolfpack - Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and a bit of Justin Bartha - and they have a new mission as a result. No longer does the film start with a messed »

For me, the Best Supporting Actor category is the most difficult category to predict this far out from the actual nominations. This is not atypical either as this category is annually, almost without fail, the toughest to foresee. The reasons for my particularly foggy clairvoyant skills on this specific matter are two-fold.
First, given the types of movies being made in this day and age, the abundance of choice supporting roles with potentially Oscar-worthy prospects is just ridiculous. They’re as plentiful as water in the ocean, and this plethora of promising performers, while a boon for fans of cinema, is a nightmare for an Oscar protagonist such as myself trying to pull off the illusion that I retain some unique insight into these awards that your regular laymen could never hope to attain.
This year’s crop of potential players makes this job an especially Herculean effort because they include so many recognizable names. »

Euugh… books. Look at them, all glossy and printed. Now there’s a smug medium if I ever saw one. What are they, exactly? Flappy paper things with symbols inside them – is that supposed to be cool, books? Is it? Huh?
Year and years ago, it’s thought that humans used books for entertainment purposes. But why would you do that when it’s possible to sit down and stare and have a screen tell you a story without having to do any work? Still, a lot of movies are actually based on these book things, believe it or not. Presumably it’s something to do with the fact that books have to be relatively “good” to be published, and that – by the time an adaptation comes around – they’ve already got a built-in fanbase, ready to exploit.

There are few moments that will go down in history as true cinematic gold: the orgasm scene in "When Harry Met Sally," the great escape in "The Shawshank Redemption" and of course the rain-soaked kiss in "Spider-Man."
To celebrate the 11th anniversary of the release of "Spider-Man" (on May 3), we are taking a look back the iconic smooch between Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson (played by Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst). The moment happens right after Spider-Man rescues Mary Jane (yet again) and she wants to show him her thanks. Though we doubt that logistically this kiss would go down so flawlessly in real life (they're fighting the force of gravity, people), we can't help but swoon at one of the most romantic moments the big-screen has ever seen.

Today, the Film Distributors’ Association (Fda) have announced the results of an interesting and quite substantial poll to determine UK cinema audiences’ favourite movie icons of all time…and there might be one or two surprises in who comes to mind for true big screen icons.
The top twenty spans seven decades of the cinema, from the 1940s to the 2000s. It embraces a ‘who’s who’ of stylish screen heroes – and some villains – who have made an indelible impression on audiences’ hearts and minds in successive generations to earn their places in cinematic folklore.
The survey was conducted online for Fda by ShowFilmFirst in two stages – firstly to seek a long list of public nominations of characters who had come to personify essential qualities of the cinema itself; and then a vote for the top twenty. More than 2,000 people aged 15 and over contributed nominations, while more than 7,000 participated in »
