Film Review: ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’ Suffers Because Seth MacFarlane Casts Himself

31 May 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – A feature-length comedy is a daunting undertaking. But being consistently funny for 2 straight hours is like climbing Mount Everest blindfolded with no arms while taking selfies using your feet.

Special effects mean nothing in the land of comedy. It’s all about the writing and the acting (in that order). To give you a sense of who you’re working with here, I find “Anchorman” hilarious and “Burn After Reading” for a dark comedy. Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted” hits more than it misses, but his return accomplishes the reverse with “A Million Ways to Die in the West” without a reason for being.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Double entendres like “That’s horseshit!” (referring to intentionally placed manure in the middle of a statement of disdain) fall flat while a game at the fair called “Runaway Slave” is genuinely funny (and finds a way for a recently unchained man to appear for a perfect post-credits cameo).

Has Universal proven that studios don't need blockbusters?

29 May 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Universal Pictures has not a single blockbuster movie on its 2014 slate. So why is it posting some of its most impressive numbers for years?


Once upon a time, Universal Pictures had its slate for 2014 pretty much sorted. It was to base it around two massive blockbuster sequels, a pair of tentpole pictures that were of sufficient size for others studios to steer clear of them. And that would then give the studio the latitude to place a few other, cheaper bets around the board.

But then, last year, there was a change of plan. Jurassic Park 4 became Jurassic World, and more worryingly for Universal, it bounced from the summer of 2014 to the summer of 2015. That meant that Universal's blockbuster strategy hung on Fast & Furious 7, a sequel that the studio had fasttracked - at the cost of director Justin Lin - so that it followed Fast & Furious 6 by a mere year. »

‘Everest’ To Be Scaled By Sam Worthington & Robin Wright

25 March 2014 11:12 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Everest, the tale of an expedition up the world’s highest mountain going horribly wrong, has added two more cast members. Avatar’s Sam Worthington and The Princess Bride herself, Robin Wright, will both take on roles in the film that is currently shooting in Nepal on the base of Everest. Other shooting locales include the Italian Dolomites, Cinecitta Studios in Rome and our very own Pinewood Studios. The film will follow a group on an expedition when they are suddenly hit by a snowstorm. Worthington will play Guy Cotton, while Wright takes on the role of Josh Brolin’s character Beck Weathers’ wife, Peach Weathers.

The cast is pretty solid, and with 2 Guns and 101 Reykjavik director Baltasar Kormakur behind the camera, we can assume it’s going to be a tense and thrilling affair.

Everest is released is set for a February 2015 release around Europe and a Us release »
