Time knocks them for not keeping their promise to the gays. I knew this backlash would happen. But they did hold out a long time and they've done so much good for the world including for marriage equality that I think we should let it slide

Gawker asks the intriguing question: "Why is Angelina Jolia a movie star?"

Some of her movies have been well-received acting vehicles. Some of her movies have been gargantuan commercial products. There is no place where those circles overlap on the Venn diagram. 

It's worth pondering her atypical celebrity.

Review: As Above, So Below (2014)

29 August 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Theatrical horror is notoriously disappointing, so the expectations I had for As Above, So Below were almost nonexistent.  The lure of cave exploration (a la The Descent) is 100% the only reason I went to see the film, and I’m glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed myself.  I caught the film during a matinee and I was the only person in the theatre.  Despite sitting alone amongst 149 empty seats, I was filled with an overwhelming amount of claustrophobia and admit to jumping in my seat on more than one occasion.  Is the film groundbreaking or particularly original? No.  However, As Above, So Below is one of the more enjoyable “found footage” films I’ve seen in a long time.

The film follows a young archaeologist named Scarlett Marlowe (Perdita Weeks), a much more beautiful version of Nicholas Cage in National Treasure who despite her young age, »

Review: As Above, So Below

29 August 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The found-footage horror genre has thankfully lost most of its steam following the late aughts boom that saw films like Paranormal Activity and Cloverfield scare up mountains of cash at the box office, while other films like [Rec] became fan favorites long after their initial releases. These movies tried to be on the cutting edge of a then-newly-embraced genre, and while some used its tropes to effectively creep out audiences most of them cheaply diminished the genre, which lead the fad to all but die out. It comes as a bit of a surprise then that one of the filmmakers behind the remake of [Rec] (2008’s Quarantine) has revisited the genre once again with As Above, So Below to try to recapture some of the found footage mojo that audiences craved on Friday nights seven years ago.  

The premise of the movie itself is fairly cheesy, but kind of promising—a young »

Review: 'As Above So Below' offers uneven but effective scares

29 August 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There is a story about the Paris catacombs that I love dearly. In August of 2004, several police officers were exploring a section of the infamous maze of tunnels near the Eiffel Tower when they came across a particular doorway covered in plastic with a sign that said, "No entry." Inside, the police were momentarily terrified by the sound of attacking guard dogs, but they realized it was a recording. Pushing further into the tunnel, they found a full working cinema, complete with lights, a projector, a bar, a dining area, and seats carved directly into the rocks. When they went topside to report their find to their superior officers, they were pleased with what they'd found. By the time they got back, though, everything was gone, and all that was left was a note that said, "Do not look for us. Signed, The Society Of The Perforated Mexicans." Since then, »

Madhur Mittal interview: 'Jon Hamm is one of the best co-stars I've had'

29 August 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Mad Men's Jon Hamm stars in Disney baseball drama Million Dollar Arm, based on the true story of a sports agent who staged a reality TV show to find baseball talent in India.

The movie sees Jb Bernstein (Hamm) discover Indian pitchers Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma), after 40,000 contestants audition with their transferable cricket skills.

Million Dollar Arm review: Jon Hamm in warm, witty baseball drama

Best known for playing the role of Salim Malik in the Danny Boyle hit Slumdog Millionaire, Mittal is a fast-bowling cricket player in the Walt Disney project.

Director Craig Gillespie helmed the project, which was filmed in Mumbai and Atlanta in 2013.

In an interview with Digital Spy, producer Mark Ciardi described the origins of the story.

"I knew Jb well before I was involved in the film," he explained. "I ran into him in 2007 at a function, asked him what he was doing. »

Jon Hamm: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked‏

29 August 2014 9:23 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

If ever there was an argument against nominative determinism, it’s the acting career of Jon Hamm. As philandering ad executive Don Draper on Mad Men he’s brought one of the most intense and believable performances in the current TV renaissance of “mysterious, angry white dudes), a quality he’s since brought to other film and television roles. We assume he was similarly impressive when he played Winnie The Pooh in the first grade – possibly using some clever ad-speak to convince Rabbit to give him some Honey – and Judas in Godspell at age 16. Surprisingly, for the guy who’s the current toast of Hollywood, he didn’t take acting at all seriously at first. In fact, save for those two juvenile attempts at it, he’d basically abandoned acting as a viable career.

Luckily for all of us, he reconsidered after moving home to complete his college degree, »

What Makes a Great TV Series Finale?

29 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What makes a good series finale? Three events this week bring this question into focus: Sunday's "True Blood" series ender, Monday's celebration of the departed "Breaking Bad" at the Emmys, and Wednesday's Vox interview with David Chase, where the "Sopranos" creator finally offered an answer to the question of whether Tony died at the end of the notorious blackout finale of the 1999-2007 series.

All three of these finales, plus others of shows that went off the air this year ("Dexter," "How I Met Your Mother") drew both kudos and complaints. Some fans found these finales satisfying and others found them cheap copouts. It almost makes you sorry for the writers, who seem bound to disappoint some faction of fans, no matter how they choose to wrap things up.

Take "True Blood," for instance. (Warning: Spoilers follow.) Fans who'd been watching since the beginning of the HBO series seven years »

Million Dollar Arm Review

29 August 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Directed by Craig Gillespie, Million Dollar Arm is a heart-warming and well-told tale that remains appealing in spite of its unsubtlety, and you certainly don’t have to be a baseball fan to enjoy it.

Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm focuses on J.B. Bernstein (Jon Hamm), a floundering sports agent who is in desperate need of a big signing. Late night channel-flipping between a cricket match and Susan Boyle’s ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ brings inspiration (as it so often does) and soon Bernstein is journeying to India to host a talent competition that will determine which would-be cricketers have the best chance at being groomed into baseball players. Returning to America with the contest winners Rinku Singh (Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) in tow, the two prospects soon begin training under unorthodox coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), but have »

Million Dollar Arm Review

29 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Craig Gillespie.

Cast: Jon Hamm, Lake Bell, Aasif Mandvi, Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Madhur Mittal, Suraj Sharma, Allyn Rachel.

Certificate: PG.

Running Time: 124 minutes.

Synopsis: A twenty-something comedienne’s unplanned pregnancy forces her to confront the realities of independent womanhood for the first time.

Jon Hamm continues an incredibly lingering transition to the big screen with Disney’s American hit Million Dollar Arm, part sports drama, part romance, part fish-out-of-water comedy which combines to make up what is essentially a biographical rags-to-riches tale.

Tracking the story of sports agent Jb Bernstein (Hamm) and an innovative idea which takes him to India (via a path of self-enlightenment and Britain’s Got Talent), we are introduced to his tough-to-like cynic who, whilst residing in a pristine apartment decorated with a flash car on the drive, spends his days dating models, soullessly shunning hellos from Lake Bell’s kooky tenant, Brenda.

With this being Disney, »

Box office preview: Summer 2014 goes out with a sigh

28 August 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The lackluster 2014 summer season comes to an end this Labor Day weekend with the release of the spy thriller November Man and the found-footage horror pic As Above/So Below. This holiday is always a slow one at theaters, and in all likelihood, Guardians of the Galaxy will once again claim the top spot to bid farewell to a season that is looking like it will net out at an eight-year low.

Here’s how things might play out.

1. Guardians of the Galaxy — $19 million

The highest earner of the season will likely come out on top over the four-day weekend, »

Peter Travers Takes on Ninja Turtles, Stallone and the Worst Movies of August

28 August 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

With summer slouching towards its sweltering end, Hollywood is throwing everything and the kitchen sink into theaters, hoping something will magically turn into blockbuster gold. Unfortunately for them, Peter Travers is back with his trusty Scum Bucket — and he's itching to fight these films back and vanquish the 10 worst movies of August.

First up is The November Man, in which Pierce Brosnan plays a spy nowhere near as cool as James Bond and who's stuck doing the same old boring action movie stuff (like screaming, "Run!"). Next is the latest in the Step Up series, »
