Five "Must-See" Movies for May 2015

1 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There aren't a lot of interesting movies hitting theaters this May. Heck, there aren't a lot of movies, period, hitting theaters this May. Sure, one title that will soon be crowned one of the biggest of all-time -- you know the one of which I speak -- after it bowed late last night to the tune of $27.6 million. Who knows, it could very well be the case that several of you read this article while you're standing in line to see the-movie-that-shall-not-be-named-until-page-two. And if that's the case, I urge you to share this with your cohorts, all those people standing around you looking for something to do until the movie finally (Finally!) starts. Do it now, don't worry, I'll wait. But back to what I was saying... Outside of a handful of blockbusters, there just isn't a lot on the release slate for the coming month. It's slim pickings, y'all! »

'Aloha', 20 Pictures & Clip from the New Movie Starring Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams & Bradley Cooper

1 May 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Bradley Cooper and Rachel McAdams in AlohaPhoto: Columbia Pictures Cameron Crowe's last film was the lackluster 2011 release We Bought a Zoo and four years later he's back with Aloha, which is already battling negative word of mouth as a result of a delayed release date and a negative email correspondence from the studio's Chairperson, Amy Pascal, following the email hack of Sony Pictures. So to say the film is being looked at with a crooked eye is an understatement and yet, when you have the filmmaker that brought us Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky and most notably Almost Famous, people still tend to want to hope for the best. Add a cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin and that hope increases. Today I have twenty pictures from the upcoming movie along with the first clip just below, but first the »

Aloha: Bradley Cooper and Rachel McAdams Rehash Their Breakup in First Clip

30 April 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Pictures has released the first clip from writer/director Cameron Crowe’s new film Aloha. The movie stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii who teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) to scuttle a launch. Complicating matters is the fact that his ex-girlfriend, played by Rachel McAdams, is also in the mix. This clip focuses on the past relationship between Cooper and McAdams, and the dialogue is classic Crowe. There’s a romanticism to the way he crafts conversations that wears its heart on its sleeve without becoming too overtly sappy. That’s certainly the case here, and while We Bought a Zoo was maybe a little too earnest for its own good, I’m optimistic that Aloha is a return to form for the guy that gave us Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire; that debut trailer was damn great. »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Cameron Crowe Jokes About Bruce Jenner’s Reported Transition in Leaked Sony Email

19 April 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Cameron Crowe took a pot shot at Bruce Jenner and his widely-reported transition into a woman in a leaked Sony email. In an exchange about his upcoming movie “Aloha” in October 2014, Crowe mentioned Jenner’s gender transition to then-Sony Pictures chairwoman Amy Pascal. “Did you have something to show me this week?” Pascal asked the director in a hacked email that was among the more than 170,000 documents and emails dumped last week by WikiLeaks. “Does Bruce Jenner want boobs? Hell yes I have something to show you!!!!” responded Crowe, who is best known for directing “Almost Famous” and writing “Fast Times. »

2015 Summer Movies Heading To Your Local Cinemas

13 April 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

Shia Labeouf Dips Into American Honey

6 April 2015 5:41 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Director Andrea Arnold has won plaudits for the UK-based likes of Red Road, Fish Tank and Wuthering Heights. We learned last May that she’s now set to head across the Atlantic for her latest, American Honey, and has landed Shia Labeouf to star. In keeping with at least two of her previous efforts, Arnold’s latest script once again explores a difficult coming-of-age experience. Arnold has already made several trips across the pond, to conduct research by immersing herself with a real-life magazine sales team. It’s a wonder she’s still around to make the film. Yet survive she has, and American Honey will focus on an Almost Famous-style story of a teenage girl who joins such a team and is plunged into the world of parties, law-bending and young love.We’d guess that Labeouf will not be taking that lead role, but instead play someone »

Kate Hudson is more than amicable with her ex-fiance Matthew Bellamy. The Almost Famous actress, who has been spotted hanging out with Bellamy numerous times since splitting this past December, told Wine Enthusiast magazine that Bellamy will forever be in her life. “We’re family for the rest of our lives, we have a beautiful baby and we love making wine,” she said, referring to their label together Hudson Bellamy Wines. “We’ll continue doing it.”  The couple, who are parents to 2-year-old son Bing, had an equally amicable split.

Ray Donovan Season 3 Adds Aaron Staton, Fairuza Balk to Cast

26 March 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Following his reoccurring role as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, Aaron Staton will appear in a reoccurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan Season 3. According to Deadline Hollywood, Staton, who has also appeared in bit parts on The Good Wife and Person of Interest as well, will play Mr. Donellen, “a strict yet kind high school teacher with a tragedy in his past.” Little else is known about how Donellen will figure into the world of Liev Schreiber’s titular L.A. fixer, especially considering how things were left with Mickey (Jon Voight), the rest of Donovan’s friends and family, and the FBI at the end of season 2. [caption id="attachment_362604" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] The casting of Staton is only the latest in a long line of casting news for the Showtime series.

Film Review: ‘Danny Collins’

9 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With his tufts of gravity-defying, shoe-polish hair and burnt-orange tan, Al Pacino has been sporting the look of a glammer-than-thou aging rock star for so long now that it’s only fitting he’s finally gotten around to playing one — which he does, exceedingly well, in “Danny Collins.” For his directorial debut, screenwriter Dan Fogelman has crafted a familiar late-in-life redemption narrative, made surprisingly palatable by Pacino’s winning comic bravado, a superb supporting cast, and currents of real feeling that cut through the expected bromides about the emptiness of fortune and fame. Though it’s unlikely to score quite the same home run with the Social Security crowd as the Fogelman-scripted “Last Vegas” did ($134 million worldwide), this March 20 opener should leave the staff of new distributor Bleecker Street humming a happy tune.

This is the second time in a year that Pacino has played a celebrated star in the throes of an identity crisis. »

No Sour Notes: Top Ten Fictional Bands in the Movies

8 March 2015 6:38 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The thought of snapping your fingers to the tunes of your favorite fictional bands in film seems rather unreal. After all these movie music-makers seem like the “reel” deal in terms of their celluloid artistry and sense of colorful on-screen showmanship.

However, some of the fictional bands or musical acts we know very well and consider so fondly actually morph into real-life acts. Also, there are real-life bands that share a “fictionalized existence” on screen as well (for instance one can try and divide the musical phenomenon of The Beatles as treasured pop cultural entities from the mop top maniacs they portrayed on the big screen in A Hard’s Day Night or Help. Some may argue they were the one in the same in front of and away from the rolling cameras).

Whatever your definition of what constitutes a favorable fictional band in film at the present moment just »

Our Favourite Fictional Bands: Stillwater from ‘Almost Famous’

6 March 2015 3:55 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The thing about most fictional bands in film is that they don’t represent music, not really. They represent ideas. They stand for what it means to love a band, or a genre, or a moment, or an experience. Perhaps no band in the history of film does this better than Stillwater from Almost Famous. Even within the film itself, the band is not particularly fantastic; they are just another adequate mid-’70s rock band. What makes them stand out is how William Miller (Patrick Fugit) sees them, how he gets wrapped up in what they stand for abstractly, and is pulled along into their life on the road, which exists in a near constant state of heady romanticism and delayed reality. The road comes to symbolize possibility, the band comes to symbolize perfection. William is just young enough, and just naive enough, to believe it in the moment, and »

Follow My Lead: Top Ten Mentors in the Movies

6 March 2015 8:00 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all would like to believe that we have that someone special to look up to for guidance and direction. From time to time we practice the art of worship for the mentor that appears larger than life to us. Whether our designated mentors that we choose to follow are inspirational or insidious it does not matter because that yearning to follow in their footsteps are so great that we blindly give anything to replicate that original blueprint.

Maybe if one dreams of being a famous astronaut you designate Neii Armstrong or John Glenn as your mentoring heroes? Perhaps your foray into film criticism was ignited by Judith Crist, Vincent Canby or Siskel & Ebert? How about emulating your favorite actor or singer and following their paths to success?

In Follow My Lead: Top Ten Mentors in the Movies we will look at some movie characters that served as  mentors to »

Newsmakers and Media Shakers: Top Ten Reporters in the Movies

14 February 2015 6:45 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For the sake of this particular movie column let’s just consider the media types of news personalities, journalists and reporters as interchangeable. With that in mind Newsmakers and Media Shakers: Top Ten Reporters in the Movies will look at some of cinema’s top inquirers in the name of getting down to the nitty-gritty in bringing the truth to the forefront.

The movies have intensely, if not sometimes comically, showcased those characters that felt justified in reporting their newsworthy findings in the name of riveting entertainment. Whether spotlighting real-life newsmaker and shakers such as legendary luminaries in Edward R. Murrow to Watergate busters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein or profiling parodies of probing journalists as Natural Born Killer’s Wayne Gale it has been a trippy ride in witnessing cinematic reporters and their excitable exploits.

Robert Kirkman’s Outcast is coming to TV

13 February 2015 12:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has had his comic Outcast picked up for series by Cinemax…

Writer Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead has long been proving that successful comic-to-tv adaptations don’t just come from superheroes. Now, another of his properties is coming to the small screen.

Outcast is the next Kirkman-penned comics series to get the telly treatment, receiving a ten episode order from Cinemax, a sibling network to HBO, who house The Walking Dead.

Shared credit for the comics series goes to artist Paul Azaceta, who brought an almost gothic-like style to proceedings. As he is with The Walking Dead show, Kirkman will be actively involved in the transition. Specifically, Kirkman has written the pilot episode and will work as an executive producer on the show as well.

If you’re unfamiliar, Outcast is the story of Kyle Barnes who, as a child, suffered repeatedly from possession. »
