Cinematical Seven: Best Ensemble Casts of 2008

29 December 2008 9:32 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

2008 was a year of incredible casts -- just about every film released this year can elicit a "Holy crap, do you know who all is in that? It has to be good!" This was a year that saw Oscar-winning actresses in popcorn flicks like Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Speed Racer, Edward Norton go green and hulking, and Tom Cruise nominated for a prosthetics-heavy cameo. That many of the films didn't live up to the cast's potential (The Women, Deception and Righteous Kill, to name three random examples) is disappointing, expected, and ultimately something to wonder "With a cast like that, how did they blow it?" in years to come.

However, many of the movies did get it right -- and it is really hard to narrow it down to seven. I tried to avoid the obvious picks such as The Dark Knight, decided the »

Carla Gugino to Play a Porn Star

16 December 2008 11:32 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I don't know a guy or a girl who doesn't have a crush on Carla Gugino. Somehow the Top Whatever Sexiest of Whatever Lists have all passed her up in favor of, like, that girl from 7th Heaven, but she'll always have a spot toward the top of my sexy list. Gugino will take on the legendary (and original) Silk Spectre in Watchmen this spring, and a couple of months ago she played one of them rough-sex types in Righteous Kill -- but now ... well, now she's taking sexy one step further in the form of a porn star. Wait, strike that ... a pregnant porn star! Hot!

Variety reports that Gugino will star in Elektra Luxx, which -- get this -- is a sequel to an ensemble comedy called Women in Trouble, which never found distribution. Yeah, so why not make the sequel when the original never had a chance to fail? »

Put A Fork In Him

27 November 2008 12:07 AM, PST | NYPost.com | See recent New York Post news »

Hoo-hah! Truth be told, there really was no contest for the top award in our 10th annual Turkey awards.

Al Pacino's jaw-dropping grimaces as an FBI profiler who receives cellphone death threats every 10 minutes in the unthrilling thriller "88 Minutes" was the cinematic equivalent of a 100-year flood.

Happy Thanksgiving, Al!

The Oscar winner also gets dishonorable mention for his other 2008 bomb - from the same director (Jon Avnet) and producer (Avi Lerner), no less - the marginally less credible "Righteous Kill," rolling eyeballs with fellow money-grubbing has-been Robert De Niro. And »

50 Cent's Hollywood Hopes Under Obama's Regime

14 November 2008 11:05 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Rapper 50 Cent is hoping Barack Obama's election victory will help his budding acting career - by striking a blow against racism in Hollywood.

Fiddy claims that, despite the success of African-American stars such as Will Smith, Samuel L. Jackson and Denzel Washington, there is still a black and white divide within the movie industry.

But he is hopeful the presence of a black man in the White House will help tear down some walls.

The star - who has appeared in movies Get Rich or Die Tryin' and Righteous Kill - says, "There's two Hollywood. There's white Hollywood and there's black Hollywood. Those lines are still there, but this is a step to getting rid of those lines." »

Stallone, Statham and Li are 'The Expendables'

6 November 2008 7:03 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

There's little denying that Sylvester Stallone and Jet Li are two of the biggest action stars of all time ... but Jason Statham? Sure, why not? At this point the guy's done three Transporters, two Cranks, a War, a Bank Job, an Italian Job and a Death Race. Hell, he's even done his own Conan-style "swords & sandals" entry, so yeah: I'd call Jason Statham one of the biggest action stars in the world. And good for him.

So where was I? Ah yes, looks like all three action stars (a hulking American, a slick Asian, and a badass Brit) are seat to team up for Millennium Film's The Expendables. If this kind of team-up sounds a little familiar, that's because Millennium pulled the same thing by getting Pacino and De Niro together (again) for Righteous Kill. Stallone will write and direct, and after that he's expected to do another Rambo sequel for the Millennium boys. »

Top 7 Dirty Cop Roles from the Past 20 Years

27 October 2008 9:19 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10. The fight for justice can sometimes be an internal struggle, thanks to the character of the dirty cop. They abuse their power while disregarding their duties to protect and serve; these crooks tend to be the worst of all criminals. In both comedic (the forgotten Blue Streak), and dramatic action forms (the totally wrong Righteous Kill), the story of the dirty cop has been told time and time again (Pride and Glory included). Films concerning such crooked bearers of the badge are scattered throughout cinema history, but the past twenty years have given us plenty to talk about. Sometimes playing a cop, good or bad, can bring the best out of certain actors. This list is dedicated to those top (dirty) cop »

"Pride and Glory" - The Review - Just just another disappointing and tired cop flick.

24 October 2008 1:04 PM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

Cop films have always been popular in Hollywood. In the last few years, more and more of these films have tackled the seedier side of this noble profession. This year alone has seen the exploration of bad cops or cops on the edge in “Lakeview Terrace”, “Righteous Kill”, “Pineapple Express” and “Street Kings”. “Pride and Glory” is just another entry in this well worn path. Everyone by now knows of the famous blue wall. That is where fellow cops protect their own no matter what the evidence says. “Pride and Glory” tries to explore this topic with middling success. The movie starts out in confusing fashion. There is a brutal bloodfest with four cops slain and several bad guys cut down as well. The camera work does not help matters. It is shaky and nauseating. You can only guess that the director was trying to put the audience into the moment and make it exciting. »

400 Screens, 400 Blows - De Niro & Pacino Royale

23 October 2008 11:02 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

400 Screens, 400 Blows is a weekly column that takes an in-depth look at the films playing below the radar, beneath the top ten, and on 400 screens or less.

Okay, so Righteous Kill (381 screens) wasn't the world's greatest movie. At best it was rudimentary -- and at worst, it was outright stupid. But I have to admit, I got a giant-sized kick out of seeing Robert De Niro and Al Pacino together for the first time (aside from not appearing together in The Godfather Part II and appearing together only briefly in Heat). They had a wonderful banter going that suggested they'd been pals for 30 years. However, we had a right to expect more from two guys who are considered among the greatest screen actors of all time.

This label, I think, has only hurt their careers, because now we tend to think of them in terms of hot and cold. Everyone »

Pacino Offers Acting Tips After Collecting Career Honour

23 October 2008 9:11 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood legend Al Pacino gave aspiring actors some sound advice after picking up a prestigious acting award at the third annual Rome Film Festival on Wednesday.

The Oscar winner attended the Italian event to collect the Marcus Aurelius Lifetime Achievement Award as part of the festival's tribute to the Actors Studio of New York - a theatre workshop of which Pacino is a board member.

The star was praised by Rome's mayor Gianni Alemanno for representing Italian-Americans throughout his film career.

He told reporters, "Al Pacino in our image is a star who represents the bridge between Italy and America in a very strong way, the link of brotherhood that there is between the two populations."

And the Scarface star went on to thrill movie fans by giving an impromptu coaching session on how to become a successful actor.

He told the eager crowd, "Learn your words, and how to rehearse, and then rehearse. My style is to allow the unconscious to be free, so you don't censor yourself."

A number of the actor's movies will be screened at the event - apart from his recent collaboration with Robert De Niro, Righteous Kill, which was withdrawn from the festival for undisclosed reasons. »

21 October 2008 11:26 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green has been tapped to direct Freaks of the Heartland, an adaptation of the Dark Horse graphic novel from Steve Niles and Greg Ruth, for Overture Films. The screenplay was written by Peter Sattler and Geoff Davey. Green will produce alongside Dark Horse Entertainment president Mike Richardson, with Steve Niles executive producing.

Overture Films is currently developing other genre movies Pandorum and a remake of George A. Romero's The Crazies. Their most recent release was the Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro starring Righteous Kill.
