New DVD Blu-Ray: 'Killer Joe,' 'Premium Rush'

18 December 2012 1:35 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Killer Joe" What's It About? A trailer park father-son combo (Thomas Haden Church, Emile Hirsch) need to come up with thousands to pay off drug dealers; their only option is to kill off their wicked step-mother (Gina Gershon) and collect the insurance. To pull off the dirty deed, they hire "Killer" Joe (Matthew McConaughey) a corrupt cop who moonlights as a hitman. See It Because: "Joe" is a showcase of skills you didn't know McConaughey had in him. The movie walks a fine line between brutally grim and darkly funny, and it earns its Nc-17 rating. But "Joe's" redneck noirish flavor is a late career high mark for director William Friedkin ("The Exorcist," "The French Connection"), who has always been able to deliver genuine heart-stopping drama. New on Blu-ray & DVD "Arbitrage" What's It About? Richard Gere plays billionaire hedge-fund manager Robert Miller, who »

'Total Recall', 'Resident Evil', 'Premium Rush' and More on DVD and Blu-ray This Week

18 December 2012 7:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Total Recall Apparently the extended cut of Total Recall found on the Blu-ray is 12 minutes longer than what was shown in theaters. Thinking back on my theater experience I don't remember a problem with narrative gaps as much as I had a problem with the film's general ability to steal every single second of said narrative from previous films. I wonder of director Len Wiseman found a way to work even more scenes stolen from other sci-fi films into the running time. I guess I'll never know. You can, however, revisit my "D-" theatrical review right here.

 

Arbitrage This was a pretty good film. I think it's being propped up a bit higher than it necessarily deserves, but it's solid, and worth a rental. You can read my theatrical review here.

 

Premium Rush Now this may be the one film on the board to seriously consider buying, not because it's necessarily good, »

Still, Daddy Heffley, played by Steve Zahn, seems to really want to put himself out on a limb and connect with his two kids. To find out whether he accomplishes this, you.ll have to catch the flick. Only watch the second extra, however, if »

Jeff Kinney: 'People ask me, is Greg really you?'

30 November 2012 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jeff Kinney, author of the hugely popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid books – and one of Time magazine's top 100 most influential people – tells Nick McGrath why his stories resonate around the world

The parallels between unassuming middle child Jeff Kinney and his star-crossed fictional anti-hero Greg Heffley are too arresting to ignore. With his preppy shirts, earnest, toothy grin and diffident manner, Kinney – a 41-year-old father of two and self-confessed former computer games addict – was probably never picked first for the school football team.

Heffley, a luckless video games fanatic frozen in cartoon time as the simplistically drawn adolescent protagonist of Kinney's phenomenally popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, is similarly flawed and – however hard he tries – rarely penetrates beyond the outer fringes of the in-crowd.

Belittled by his cooler, tougher elder brother Rodrick, frustrated by his mollycoddled younger brother Manny and ignored by the class catch Holly Hills »

Jared Abrahamson Joins Indie Gangster Movie Blowtorch!

28 November 2012 4:18 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Jared Abrahamson, probably best known as Tim Warren from that Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days thing is all of the sudden set to star in an upcoming indie movie titled Blowtorch. And, what’s definitely interesting about the whole thing – we’re talking about Brooklyn-based gangster tale! Imagine that! The rest of the cast looks almost perfect, though: Lois Robbins, Fat Joe and Kathy Najimy are already on board!

So, at this moment we know that Kevin Breslin will direct this gangster story which he, by the way, also co-wrote with Rosemary Breslin.

Blowtorch will center on Robbins’ character – a recently widowed mother whose oldest son is murdered. The detective assigned to the case doesn’t pay it much attention, prompting her to stalk a group of Brooklyn gangsters to uncover the truth.

Not hard to guess that Abrahamson will play the young man who gets caught in a life of crime, »

Mark Kermode's DVD round-up – review

24 November 2012 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Magic Mike; Ted; Brave; Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

After what seemed like a lifetime leaning "quirkily" against people and inanimate objects in the posters for dismal, money-spinning rom-coms, Matthew McConaughey rediscovered his mojo this year with two movies that reminded us why we first sat up and took notice of him in Dazed and Confused, Lone Star and even Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. In William Friedkin's Killer Joe, he built upon the career resurrection hinted at in The Lincoln Lawyer, playing a slimy, murderous Texan working both sides of the law.

He dazzles once again in Magic Mike (2012, Lionsgate, 15) as the leader of a male striptease troupe whose routines boast none of the coy amateurism of The Full Monty. Inspired in part by the real-life experiences of beefcakey co-star and producer Channing Tatum, this Steven Soderbergh-directed romp continues the director's ongoing love affair with upmarket exploitation cinema. »

NBCUniversal And Fox Agree To Provide Content For Nook Tablets

30 October 2012 7:45 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

NBC Universal and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will supply standard definition and HD movies and TV shows to the Nook Video download and rental service — just as Barnes & Noble prepares this week to ship its Nook HD and Nook HD+ tablets and offer them in its stores. The bookstore retailer’s release skimps on details about the agreements, including how much content the studios will provide, how much titles might cost, and what other devices might be able to handle Nook Video streams and downloads. But it says that titles include Snow White And The Huntsman, Battleship, Dr. SeussThe Lorax, Ice Age: Continental Drift, and Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. Along with its previous deals with HBO, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Starz, Viacom, Warner Bros, and Disney, Barnes & Noble says it will offer “thousands of movies and TV shows for all ages and interests.” The new agreements, »

'Moonrise Kingdom,' 'Avatar 3-D', 'Madagascar 3' and More On DVD and Blu-ray this Week

16 October 2012 8:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have mentioned it a couple times before, but in case you missed it and haven't looked yet, I spiffed up the DVD and Blu-ray release date calendar, so DVDs and Blu-rays are listed separately along with their Amazon purchasing links. To that end, I don't believe I have ever mentioned it, but buying product through the Amazon links here on the site helps support the site as Amazon tosses a little money toward RopeofSilicon. It's not a lot, but every little bit helps, so if you can, consider it next time. With that, let's see what's out this week... Moonrise Kingdom Moonrise Kingdom is undoubtedly one of my favorite movies this year and oddly enough I haven't taken time to watch the Blu-ray yet. "What gives Brad?" "Yeah, what gives?" I don't know, just haven't had a chance to watch it, perhaps it's this inner-dialogue I've been dealing with »

Top 10 Worst Movies of the Summer (2012)

27 September 2012 3:57 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

We laughed (at how bad the movie was), we cried (because we didn't see a different movie), we kissed eight bucks (or ten or twelve or sixteen, depending upon the format) good-bye!

Stale jokes, missing plots, phone-in performances...too often this summer movie season, we found ourselves scratching our heads in wonder at how actors and directors we have come to respect could have strayed so far off course. We probably should have gone back to the box office and demanded a refund for some of the stinkers we endured this summer. If you feel the same way, vent your frustration by helping us rate the Top 10 Worst Movies of the 2012 summer movie season.

ParaNorman scares away the competition at UK box office

25 September 2012 10:05 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

But takings weren't just modest for this charming animation as a batch of medium-sized movies all competed for attention

The winner

It was the unsung hero the previous weekend, knocked into second place thanks to The Sweeney having its tally inflated by two days of preview takings, and now it's enjoying its moment in the spotlight: ParaNorman is the UK's top box-office hit.

The stop-motion animation does so, however, with a relatively lacklustre number: £1.22m. Only three films so far this year have topped the chart with lower weekend takings. ParaNorman fell just 12% from the previous weekend, the smallest dip of any title in the top 10. It was the only picture in the market to clear £1m.

The chasing pack

Not exactly untypically for this point in the film calendar, there's a large number of medium-sized movies vying for cinemagoers' attention, but little in the way of breakout hits. Only »
