Mark Wahlberg -- Ringside Seats to Watch Pacquiao ... Train

24 April 2015 5:03 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Mark Wahlberg might've been a week early and minus a Floyd Mayweather ... but he still had the best seat in the house to watch Manny Pacquiao today ... dropping in on Pac Man's gym session. Wahlberg brought his entourage (see what we did there) to Wild Card Boxing in Hollywood and got an up close and personal look at the Filipino slugger just days before the May 2nd mega fight. Things had been really tight at »

Vampire Diaries Recap: Double Dose

23 April 2015 6:49 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Caroline’s tour of terror finally reached its end on Thursday’s Vampire Diaries — and that wasn’t even the craziest part of the game-changing hour.

No, that honor goes to a vengeful Lily handing the cure for vampirism over to Elena, telling her, “Damon was never going to offer it to you.” (That’s cold, Mama Salvatore. Real cold.)

Strong Debut on Disc Chart for ‘Batman Vs. Robin’

22 April 2015 6:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner’s direct-to-video “Batman Vs. Robin” was the best-selling newcomer the week ending April 19, bowing at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan’s Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

But in overall disc sales, the animated “DC Universe Original Movie” was trumped by another Warner title, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” which regained the top spot on Nielsen’s First Alert chart after spending two weeks at No. 2.

“Interstellar,” the Paramount sci-fi epic that occupied the No. 1 spot for the last two weeks, slipped to No. 3 on First Alert.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart: Walt Disney’s “Big Hero 6,” repeating at No. 4, and 20th Century Fox’s “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death,” a horror sequel that bowed at No. 5.

The original “The Woman in Black” came out in 2012 and driven by favorable reviews as well as Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe in »

A Little Chaos movie review: necessary fantasy

17 April 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Romantic and funny and smart and wise and just plain different. This is a historical costume dramedy romp about gardening. How cool is that? I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Historical fantasy! Nope, there are no dragons or wizards or magic. But it’s fantasy nevertheless. And of a very welcome sort. Of a very necessary sort.

In Paris in 1682, King Louis Xiv is preparing to move his court from the Louvre in the city to the countryside palace at Versailles, and he wants gardens that he likens, not in any metaphorical way, to the divine: “Heaven shall be here,” he commands. No small task, then, for royal gardener and landscape architect André Le Notre. And Le Notre takes a real chance when he dares to hire, for one section of the gardens, »

Holdovers ‘Interstellar,’ ‘The Hobbit’ Top Slow Home Video Sales Chart

15 April 2015 5:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After weeks of three or four high-profile new releases, the disc business is going through its usual pre-summer slowdown.

And with no new big theatrical releases arriving in stores last week, the two top spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ending April 12 are the same as in the prior week: Paramount’s “Interstellar” sci-fi epic, which earned $188 million at the U.S. box office, at No. 1, and Warner’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third installment in the adventure fantasy trilogy, at No. 2.

Walt Disney again took the No. 3 and No. 4 spots, with returning titles “Into the Woods” and “Big Hero 6” on the Nielsen Videoscan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined. Both titles also finished the week in the same spots on Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray chart, albeit in the reverse order.

Second Trailer For Hot Pursuit With Sofia Vergara And Reese Witherspoon

10 April 2015 12:35 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

New Line Cinema

My mind has been well and truly boggled by this second promo for Hot Pursuit. Rather than being an innocuous, throwaway comedy promo in the vein of some kind of Paul Blart movie, this film seems to be juggling all sorts of oddness.

First of all there’s the scene with the chap who shoots himself while watching one woman draw another into some mock-lesbianism. This first inspires his gun to go off accidentally (and I’m sure they know what they’re doing there) and then provokes him to say some weird, arrogant and chauvinist nonsense on TV.

Then later there’s a scene where Reese Witherspoon cross-dresses as a man and gets her breasts frisked. And also a bit where Sofia Vergara mocks Reese Witherspoon’s underwear as if she’s wearing some sort of embarrassing granny panties.

Pretty much every scene in that trailer »

It's down to the spy and the doctor. After weeks of intense voting and lobbying—we see your tweets—Save One Show 2015 is down to the finals between ABC's Agent Carter and The CW's Hart of Dixie. Yep, after coming back in the Wild Card round, Agent Carter's sister show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. couldn't compete with the butt-kicking Hayley Atwell series and CW's beloved medical dramedy. Another comic book series, Constantine, didn't have the votes to stand up against the fan-favorite period spy drama and the long-running Rachel Bilson show. Agent Carter and Hart of Dixie were pretty much neck-to-neck in the semifinals round. You hear that super fans? Get the vote »

Wild Card: Who is the Big N’s biggest baddie?

31 March 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bowser.  Ganondorf.  Ridley.  Nintendo’s history is full of villains almost as recognizable and iconic as the company’s heroes.  Some, like Wario, are more empathetic or misunderstood (you try living in the shadow of Mario and Luigi!)  Others are downright evil, like Mother Brain or Ganondorf.  Many give us thrills and chills every time they recur, while others only needed to appear once to be permanently cemented in gamers’ minds, like Majora.  Regardless of anything else, however, all of these characters are bad.  But there is one boss who is the baddest of the bad, one sinister Nintendo villain who overshadows all others in his acts of cruelty and inhumanity. While their heinous crimes bring tears and instill fear, there is no exultation that matches overthrowing this wicked tyrant.  Doing so is no trivial task, however, it requires patience, dedication, and the ability to stare evil in the face, »

'Interstellar', 'Imitation Game', 'Wild' and Scoreless 'Gravity' Today on DVD & Blu-ray

31 March 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Interstellar I enjoyed Interstellar the one time I saw it, but I just don't have that urge to see it again, which make me a little sad. I'm not in a camp that looks at it as confusing or upset about the sound design, I felt it was straight-forward enough and while a little bloated, a fun ride and one I'm happy I saw in IMAX as I don't think seeing it on the small screen will do it nearly the same justice. That said, for the fans, it is here to own and you can watch it as many times as you like, complete with a ton of special features. One of which is included directly below and you can watch about 90 minutes worth right here. yt id="rNkYNfAXzx4" width="370"

Fast & Furious 7 (aka Furious 7) movie review: head-on vehicular hard-on

30 March 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Too long, too convoluted, too sentimental, and too ridiculous. Some will say those are its good points. Will they embrace the homoeroticism too? I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): mostly not a fan of the series

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

We are through the looking glass here, people. We have reached peak Hollywood. There is nothing negative anyone can say about Furious 7 (aka Fast & Furious 7) that cannot be taken as a positive. There is the “review-proof movie” that will gather a massive audience no matter what we egghead critics think of it, and then there’s the movie that is actually hardened against reviews like it’s coated in Teflon: scoffing just slides right off it.

I could say that this is the kind of movie in which, when someone says to a child who has just tossed a toy, »

Second chances are what Save One Show is all about! We started off with 15 shows, and are now down to the final three—Agent Carter, Constantine and Hart of Dixie—in our annual campaign to rescue one TV series from cancellation, but guess what? One of the previously eliminated shows is getting back in on the action. It's time for the Wild Card round, which gives one show's fanbase the chance to get their series back on the ballot, including the two shows eliminated in the Top 5—Forever and The Mindy Project.

28 March 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Celebrity homes and real estate - Actor Jason Statham and his model girlfriend Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have reportedly bought a $13 million home together.
