Movie Review: Draft Day

12 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Draft Day opens in the month prior to the actual 2014 NFL draft. So, Hollywood gets an “A” for timing the release just right. Fans of the NFL are primed for just this sort of film since the pre-season games of August still feel so impossibly far away after a long, cold winter.

Regrettably, this is an uneven film that will only satisfy the hard-core NFL fan. Draft Day was directed by Ivan Reitman who is an undeniable talent as a director from 1980. Not today. It was written by Scott Rothman in his writing debut and by Rajiv Joseph who is credited with writing only three individual television episodes. Draft Day could have used a much deeper bench on the writing staff. Rookies make rookie mistakes.

Draft Day tells the story of Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) and the choices he must make on draft day in the NFL. Weaver is »

Thoughts on 'The Matrix' 15 years later and 1999 as a great year for movies

31 March 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On March 31, 1999, Andy and Lana (née Larry) Wachowski's "The Matrix" hit theaters. That's 15 years ago today, and it was a pretty significant event. I think anyone who has read me for any period of time knows my affinity for and fascination with 1999 as an overall annus mirabilis at the multiplex. I've gone so far as to start the process of reporting a book because I can never quite shake how that year just seems to mean something. On one hand, it's personal. It was my first year of film school and going to a double feature of "American Beauty" and "Three Kings" with some fellow classmates one night, that kind of power punch will do a lot to galvanize someone in the early stages of embarking on a career in film. But it was an objectively amazing time. First and foremost, let's pause and consider that for a brief period, »

Re-Viewed: Peter Berg's heartfelt football drama Friday Night Lights

2 February 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that."

The words above may come from Liverpool's legendary soccer manager Bill Shankly, but they perfectly epitomise the feelings and mindsets of the characters inhabiting Peter Berg's 2004 sports drama Friday Night Lights. Set in Odessa, Texas - where high school team the Permian Panthers are the beating heart that keeps the local community alive - Berg's film hones in on the team's state championship run-in and the trials and tribulations of the players and their coach Gary Gaines (Billy Bob Thornton).

Five years previously, Oliver Stone made the flashy Any Given Sunday (a drama stretching from locker to boardroom) but here the focus is on the grass-roots, a side of the game untouched by big corporate deals and mega-money professional contracts. »

Oliver Stone Drops Out Of Mlk Biopic

17 January 2014 5:08 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

He's been in negotiations to direct the untitled Martin Luther King Jr. biopic at Dreamworks for a few months now, the one set to star his "Any Given Sunday" star Jamie Foxx as the famed civil rights leader.

Today, Stone took to Twitter to confirm he's no longer involved in the project due to creative differences with the producers. From the sounds of it Stone wanted to make a warts-and-all style biopic, whereas the producers want something which paints a more flattering picture. Here's Stone's tweets on the subject:

"Sad news. My Mlk project involvement has ended. I did an extensive rewrite of the script, but the producers won't go with it.

The script dealt with issues of adultery, conflicts within the movement, and King's spiritual transformation into a higher, more radical being

I'm told the estate and the 'respectable' black community that guard King's reputation won't approve it. They »

Oliver Stone Drops Out of Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic

17 January 2014 4:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Oliver Stone has been in negotiations to direct the Untitled Martin Luther King Jr. Project for DreamWorks, with Jamie Foxx in talks to star as the Civil Rights Leader, since October. We haven't heard anything else about the biopic until today, when the filmmaker took to his Twitter page to reveal that he is no longer involved due to creative differences with the producers, while blasting those who controll Martin Luther King's estate and the black community for suffocating the truth about the man.

Sad news. My Mlk project involvement has ended. I did an extensive rewrite of the script, but the producers won’t go with it.
