We've finally gotten around to dissecting the creepy little horror film 'Amusement' which released earlier this year on DVD. Check out our Amusement Movie Review and gander at the official synopsis below. We've included the trailer under that as well. Enjoy.
Tabitha. Shelby. Lisa. They're longtime friends on separate life paths. But they share a horrific destination when a seemingly innocent incident from their school days comes back to terrify them.
Something someone wants payback: warped vengeance…mind-games vengeance…taunting, shredding, slashing vengeance. Inside a stonewalled chamber of prison cells and mechanisms of doom, the three women and other victims face a fierce fight to survive. Who lives? Who dies? It's all for someones Amusement.
Watch the Red (Retired Extremely Dangerous) Trailer: This is how the pitch meeting went: Remember Space Cowboys? No. No. No. Yes! Great! It’s Space Cowboys, but with ex-cia agents! Wait, no, I don’t remember Space Cowboys. You just said that you did. I was thinking about The Astronaut Farmer. (Disgusted silence) Anyway, the cast is Helen Mirren, Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker and John Malkovich. Oh! Why didn’t you just say that? Plus it’s based on a comic book. And guns. Lots of guns. Here is 200 million dollars. Thank you! Freeze frame jumping in the air high fives »

#2 "The Karate Kid" ($29 million)
#3 "The A-Team" ($13.8 million)
#4 "Get Him to the Greek" ($6.1 million)
#5 "Shrek Forever After" ($5.5 million)
Two Wild West heroes entered the box-office arena this weekend. Only one gunslinger made it out with victory to his name. That badge-wielding cowboy goes by the name of Woody, the pull-string action figure at the center of "Toy Story 3," Pixar's latest effort that easily outgunned "Jonah Hex."
"Toy Story 3" emerged in first place this weekend with a fantastic $109 million haul, the best opening weekend ever for any Pixar film to date. "The Incredibles" held the previous record with $70.5 million. At the start of the weekend, some box-office analysts predicted that the third "Toy Story" installment could break the best opening weekend record for an animated film, »
Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks, who won the NHL’s Stanley Cup Wednesday night in a Game 6 overtime win over the Philadelphia Flyers. One of the many elated fans last night was commentator, and former Blackhawk, Jeremy Roenick. As Jr watched the 2010 squad hoist the franchise’s first Cup in 49 years, he remembered how he was there in 1992, only to be swept in four games by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bottom lip quivering, barely holding back tears, he said, “For the kid who was there in 1992 who was crying when I came off the ice in after we lost Game 4 at Chicago Stadium — you waited 18 years. »

HollywoodNews.com stays on top of the latest DVD and Blu-ray releases so you know which films are worth your time and money. This week, we recommend:
The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy

Disappointed fans have expressed their anger on the appropriate message boards, and are likely to wait for those releases — even though the studio hasn’t mentioned when, or even if, such treatments will ever be applied to Jackson’s longer versions.
For those who choose not to wait, the “Rings” Blu-rays await you, and they are glorious. Frodo (Elijah Wood) embarks on his quest to destroy the darkly powerful ring, »

Let's take a look at what's coming down the pipeline in future months and years.
"Shrek Forever After" (May 21, 2010): The fourth and final film in the lovable green orge's franchise will be the first to go the 3-D route.
