Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger just can't seem to stay away from each other! First it was the University of Southern California football game Thursday night. Then it was a casual dinner date Friday. Now, E! News can confirm the twosome enjoyed another night out at Mr. Nice Guy in West Hollywood Saturday evening. "They had just been for dinner and came to Nice Guy to meet some friends for drinks," an eyewitness told E! News. "They seem so happy together!" The "We Can't Stop" singer stayed close to her rumored new boyfriend as she held his hand outside the hotspot. "She was beaming, she seemed so happy to be by his side," the eyewitness added. »
Professor X, aka Patrick Stewart, will be making a complete turnaround for his next big screen role. Clearly the actor’s had enough of being Mr. Nice Guy, as he’s signed up for a dastardly part in Jeremy Saulnier’s bleak thriller, Green Room.
Stewart will be joining Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat, for what sounds like another grim atmospheric bit of grit. The story follows “a young punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence and fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses.”
If you’re hoping that the good ol’ prof will be on hand to help the penniless musicians, think again. Stewart has opted to stretch his villainous chops as Darcy Banker, “the unflinching and industrial leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest. »

One of the many, many reasons I absolutely loved Fargo — the FX drama that builds upon the 1996 Coen Brothers movie of the same name — is that it’s filled with allegories and digressions and asides that may or may not mean something, but they always make you think. (More on that later.) So in the spirit of the show, let’s start with one of my own — or rather, one that, like this show, builds upon somebody else’s.
In the 1961 novel The Moviegoer, Walter Percy coins the phrase “certification” to talk about how your perspective on your hometown changes »

I have a curious habit, maybe you have it too, if you are a real movie geek, film fan, cinema addict, what have you.
A certain number of movies that I have seen and loved with all my heart were losers at the box office or were mercilessly slammed by critics, usually both. This doesn’t happen all the time, mind you. I know a bad movie when I see one. But several times I have seen a movie on opening day and loved it so much I was sure it would be a big hit and be loved by critics and film goers, nope, not all the time.
Here then is my own personal and highly eccentric top ten list, with some honorable mentions, of movies that lost out, yet I love them still, many of them desperately, hysterically, madly do I love these films, well anyway… let me tell you about it. »

Remember when Jon “Bones” Jones first burst onto the Ufc scene in 2008? He dominated Andre Gusmao in his debut, threw Tuf 1 runner-up Stephan Bonnar around the Octagon like a rag doll, smashed Vladimir Matyushenko and Brandon Vera, submitted Jake O’Brien and Ryan Bader, then won the Ufc light heavyweight title by stopping Mauricio “Shogun” Rua via Tko in 2011. At just 23-years old Jones had become the youngest champion in Ufc history.
Fans were enamored and enthralled as Jones continued to smash the competition. He made legends look like children and fans began contemplating a super fight between Jones and then reigning Ufc middleweight champ Anderson “The Spider” Silva. Onlookers wondered in amazement if the young upstart could finally be the one to match Silva’s skills inside the Octagon.
Then something happened, not all at once, but fans started turning on Jones. Holes »

In 1989 Peter Berg played a kid named Jonathan Parker who had a lot of blood on his hands in Wes Craven's Shocker. Now that there's faint rumblings of a remake slightly shaking, guess who wants back in on the action?
Arrow in the Head caught up with Berg (pictured) recently, and he dropped the following on fans...
"I'd love to remake it," says Berg before clarifying, "Wes would direct it; I'd star in it."
"I’d like to redo Shocker just to get the special effects right because we had a real special effects disaster on the film," said director Wes Craven in an earlier interview. "The guy who was doing all the visual effects kind of flamed out, had a nervous breakdown because he was attempting more than he could actually do. When he told us towards the end of the movie that not a single one of »

Writer/director/John Woo junkie Gareth Evans assembled action genre euphoria with The Raid: Redemption, a film that made an artform out of ass-kicking, while utilizing filmmaking that laid hundreds of shakicam movies to shame. In front of the camera, the hero was Rama, a Swat member played by Iko Uwais, who had to fight his way to the top of an apartment complex filled with adversaries. With that film’s well-deserved success, Evans and his Indonesian star Uwais (who also writes the choreography) now return with The Raid 2: Berandal, which was originally intended to be made before The Raid: Redemption.
Uwais has only appeared in four films including The Raid: Berandal. He was discovered by Evans when the filmmaker was making a documentary in Indonesia in 2007. Two years later, the duo c/ollaborated for the first time on Merantau, »
