The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)

The good news is that now that all the singing and the farting around is done in Hobbiton and the story has kicked in good and proper, the majority of this second in Peter Jackson’s portrayal of a slim Tolkien story overblown to epic proportions is mostly action with a minimum of plot. It’s still got various story beats it has to hit of course and is very much a middle chapter, but this has a momentum which was really missing from An Unexpected Journey.

In this second Hobbit film you can start to see the stuff that was added in to pad out the two films into a trilogy with characters who do not appear in the books introduced and a weird elf/dwarf romance along with a more angsty and badass Legolas, strangely enough it doesn’t feel out-of-place.

WWE: Big Show Taking Time Off To Film Movie

20 June 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

The Big Show is currently on a break from WWE programming to film a new WWE Films project called Vendetta according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The filming began last week with Jen and Sylvia Soska directing it. They also directed See No Evil 2 starring Kane that will be out later this year.

The story for Vendetta revolves around a detective (played by Big Show) who deliberately commits a crime in order to wind up in prison and enact revenge on the man who murdered his wife. Show previously starred in the WWE film Knucklehead and also had minor roles in Jingle All The Way, The Waterboy and MacGruber. While no return date has been given, WWE’s film projects usually take about six weeks to film. Sometimes it’s more than that, but that’s typical of how long the films take.

Memorial Day: Which pop culture cookout would you crash?

26 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The sun is shining, the smell of summer is finally in the air…and naturally, you’re still thinking about TV and movies. Which is fine, because so are we. Specifically: Not long ago, your pals at EW had a conversation about the pop culture cookouts we’d most love to attend. Three serve pretty standard barbecue fare; two feature whole roast pigs; one makes itty bitty alligators the main course. But all feature great company, from ace Miami detective Marcus Burnett to  growly, grizzled Korean War vet Walt Kowalski to the scrappy kids who spend their days hitting homers on their local baseball diamond. »

Movie Review: 'Blended' isn't Adam Sandler's worst subsidized vacation

22 May 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You know those real estate scams where you're offered a free vacation if you just sit through a time-share presentation and that time-share presentation seems never-ending, because even if it's just two hours, what you really wanted was a free vacation? For Adam Sandler, filmmaking is like that time-share presentation.  All the guy wants is to get major motion picture studios to subsidize his vacations. Is that so wrong? If Sony or Warner Brothers said to you, "How would you like an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii or Africa or a secluded lake? And all you have to do is deliver a movie and nobody on our side will even ask to see a script or bother looking at the final cut," what would you say? You'd accept the deal. Don't deny it.  It's obvious that Sandler and his partners-in-vacation-loving-crime don't especially enjoy the quid pro quo required for their global galavanting, »

"There's nobody like Drew" - Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore reunite for Blended

21 May 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Almost a decade after their last movie, the memory loss romantic comedy 50 First Dates, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are back together again for Blended.

The film is the third collaboration for the pair (and their second with Sandler's regular director Frank Coraci), and sees them play single parents who - after a disastrous blind date at Hooters - find themselves thrown together into a "blended" family for a holiday to South Africa.

Sandler and Barrymore's working relationship goes back to 1998's The Wedding Singer, a comedy that college pals Sandler and Coraci conceived as an antidote to the romantic comedies flooding the market at the time.

"We were talking about doing a romantic comedy, which was a different thing for us. We wanted to do something cool because as guys of about 29 we didn't run out to romantic comedies, but we wanted to make a cool one," Coraci told Digital Spy. »

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, »

11 March 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are to receive the 2014 CinemaCon Female Star Of The Year Award and Male Star Of The Year Award respectively.

The stars of Warner Bros rom-com Blended, set for release on May 23, will receive the honours at the Las Vegas convention on March 27.

“Is there anyone who isn’t in love with Drew Barrymore, one of the most captivating and incredibly talented actresses of our time?” said CinemaCon managing director Mitch Neuhauser.

“Her career is simply remarkable and to think the first two directors to take her under their wing at the respective ages of five and seven were Ken Russell and Steven Spielberg, is astonishing.”

“With phenomenal box office success as an actor, writer and producer, Adam Sandler has brought some of the most entertaining and hilarious comedies of the »

Throw out the Clowns – A tale of unrequited love between Comedy and The Academy Awards.

25 February 2014 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

It started so well; two of Hollywood’s hottest properties making self-deprecating jokes about how they were the perfect age to snare a younger demographic of viewer for a ceremony which had been shedding ratings faster than it added minutes to its running time. For Anne Hathaway and James Franco, that would be as good as it got, the remainder of their hosting duties for the 83rd Academy Awards was made up of unintelligible ramblings and a Western’s worth of tumbleweeds.

They weren’t really to blame, well Hathaway anyway, because this had been one of the few times that the Academy had opted for a non-comedian occupying the Kodak Theatre stage. There was 2009’s soft-focus Hugh Jackman sing-along, and in 1995 David Letterman gave us the cringe-worthy “Oprah. Uma. Uma. Oprah” moment of infamy. Both examples underline that the appeal of the host, and by proxy their laugh quota, »
