White Boy Rick tells the true story of Richard Wershe Jr., a teen in 1980s Detroit also known as White Boy Rick,recruited by the FBI as the youngest informant ever at 15-years-old. The trailer makes this film look like some wild adventure in the vein of Blow but White Boy Rick is a sad and frightening tale, as well as a portrait of economic decline of a working class inner city neighborhood, now gripped by drugs and violence. It is also a story about a boy buffeted by the bad choices of adults, and the terrible environment in which he lives.

Tamara Braun Was Happy to Go Back to Work at a Hotel While Starring on General Hospital

The reality of being a working actor has been in the news recently after a Fox News report on actor Geoffrey Owens that revealed the former The Cosby Show actor was working at a Trader Joe’s grocery store. This led to many actors sharing their own stories explaining how a second job is necessary to pay the bills in between gigs, and how the media shouldn't shame actors for making ends meet. Now, General Hospital star Tamara Braun (Kim) has revealed that she went back to work at her hotel job even after joining the cast of Gh in 2001. “Being an actor, musician, writer, dancer, photographer or artist/creative of any kind is really hard,” she shared on Instagram. “Most have other types of jobs while pursuing their craft. Unless you come from family money it is practically impossible not to. I have had many jobs to pay the bills while pursuing my career.

What Happened to Stavros Cassadine on General Hospital

Evil never dies, and it appears that the Cassadine family is back to cause trouble in Port Charles once again. But could Stavros Cassadine return to General Hospital? He’s already died four times, which means this cat should have about five lives left to go! The role was played originally by John Martinuzzi when the character was introduced during the famous Ice Princess storyline in 1983. When Gh resurrected Stavros in 2001, actor Robert Kelker-Kelly assumed the role and played the character for a few different reigns of terror over the years. Stavros was originally introduced as the cousin of the villainous Mikkos Cassadine, although it was later revealed he was the firstborn son of Mikkos and Helena Cassadine. Obsessed with Laura Spencer, Stavros kidnapped her and told her Luke Spencer was dead and got her to marry him. It was during this time that he fathered her child, Nikolas Cassadine.

What Happened to Carly on General Hospital

Carly has been through the wringer more than once on General Hospital, but some fans fear that her recent nightmare could mean the end for the beloved character. But fear not. It will take more than that to get rid of Carly for good! Don’t believe us? She’s survived much worse than that in her colorful past! Carly was first introduced back in 1996, portrayed by actress Sarah Joy Brown. She remained with the soap until 2001, at which point the role was recast with Tamara Braun. In 2005, Jennifer Bransford briefly took over the part until it was recast again, this time with Laura Wright, who is still playing Carly on Gh to this day. When she first arrived in Port Charles, Carly enrolled in the nursing program at Gh to get closer to her biological mother, Bobbie Spencer. But after being rejected by her mom, Carly retaliated by seducing her husband,

What Happened to Jason on General Hospital

Jason Morgan has always been a popular character on General Hospital and fans were devastated when Steve Burton chose to leave the soap back in 2012. Jason returned with a new face in 2014 when actor Billy Miller assumed the role, but in 2017 it was revealed he was actually Jason's twin brother, and Burton thrilled his fans by reprising his role. Jason's recent actions have led some viewers to worry that he's leaving Gh again, but Burton has already said he's signed a long-term contract with the soap, so they needn't worry. Plus, as much as Jason has gone through already, there's still so much more story to tell! The character was originally born Jason Quartermaine back in 1981 to Alan Quartermaine and Susan Moore. After his mother’s death, Jason moved into the Quartermaine mansion where Monica initially rejected the child but ultimately came to love him and adopted him. Jason and his brother,

Stronger – Review

(l-r) Jake Gyllenhaal, Miranda Richardson, and Tatiana Maslany, in Stronger.

Photo credit: Scott Garfield. Courtesy of Roadside Attractions ©

“Boston Strong” is the phrase that came out of the remarkable, resilient response of the people of Boston after the terrorist bombings at the 2013 Boston Marathon. “Boston Strong” spirit sparked admiration across the country, making the whole city seem heroic. Stronger is a true-story drama about one of the survivors of that attack, Jeff Bauman. Bauman lost both legs above the knees to the bomb but he not only survived, he helped identify one of the bombers.

Jake Gyllenhaal gives a valiant performance by as Bauman, but director David Gordon Green gives the audience a different kind of story than they might be expecting. Green’s previous films include Snow Angels (2007) and All The Real Girls (2003), and the director seems determined to fit this true story about a historic event into that dramatic mold.

Movie Review – Why Him? (2016)

Why Him?, 2016.

Directed by John Hamburg

Starring James Franco, Bryan Cranston, Zoey Deutch, Megan Mullally, Griffin Gluck, Keegan-Michael Key, Adam Devine, Cedric the Entertainer, Zack Pearlman, and Kaley Cuoco

Synopsis:

A dad forms a bitter rivalry with his daughter’s young rich boyfriend.

Photo Credit: Scott Garfield.

During the majority of Why Him? there is a heavy sensation of déjà vu; this is just Meet the Parents under much raunchier direction. And by raunchier, all I really mean is an over-reliance on lowbrow sexual humor (a luxurious house has artistic paintings of different animals in various sexual positions) and James Franco dropping obscenities in just about every line of dialogue he delivers while playing an upbeat foul-mouthed yet well-meaning billionaire computer programmer. Then after a quick a bit of pre-review research, it came to my attention that this comedy was directed by John Hamburg, a writer on the trilogy of

Christopher Guest on 'Mascots' and Why His Comedies Are Completely Different

Christopher Guest on 'Mascots' and Why His Comedies Are Completely Different
As Spinal Tap lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel – wearer of anatomically correct T-shirts, owner of amplifiers that go to "11," writer of delicate compositions like "Lick My Love Pump" – Christopher Guest, along with director Rob Reiner and his co-writers/bandmates Michael McKean and Harry Shearer, turned 1984's This Is Spinal Tap into a devastatingly funny dissection of rock pomposity. To say that the film's mix of off-the-cuff jokes and straight-faced parody has influenced several generations of filmmakers and funny people would be a vast understatement – everyone from Ricky Gervais to Fred Armisen

Movie Review: Furious 7

A movie like Furious 7 has a special sort of appeal. It is a formulaic thrill-ride plain and simple. Furious 7 is directed by James Wan who is far more famous for his horror films, Saw (2004), Insidious (2010), and The Conjuring (2013), than anything involving high-performance vehicles racing at insane speeds. Yet I can’t help but applaud a valuable franchise that decides to bring in new blood showing no fear of rocking the boat. Of course, we still get slow-motion acrobatic car shots doing hugely impossible things; so perhaps that is all that matters.

The film is written by Chris Morgan who penned the prior installment in the series, Furious 6 (2013), along with three other earlier entries. The characters are based on work from Gary Scott Thompson, who is the only original writer left from the start of the series. In this seventh iteration of the franchise, someone is hunting the

Film Review: Relentlessly Action-Packed ‘Furious 7’ Actually Has a Story, Too

Chicago – I’ve never classified myself as a “Fast & Furious” franchise fan. Nor have I been a hater. I’ve fallen somewhere in between – willingly watching the popcorn flicks but then quickly going about my life as fast as the furious action ended. Until “Furious 7”…

And it’s not just because we’ve lost Paul Walker much too soon, which, while extremely unfortunate, also unfortunately has the burden of being a boon to this film.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Going into it, I was just as curious how he’d be handled as I was about anything else about it. Since he can’t be in the eighth film, would Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner – Dominic Toretto’s close buddy – be killed off? Would it insensitively happen in a car crash? Or would writer Chris Morgan and director James Wan (“Saw,” “Saw III,” “Insidious,” “Insidious: Chapter 2,” “The Conjuring”) surprise us

New Poster For Oscar Hopeful Foxcatcher Debuts

Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo are featured in the new theatrical poster from Sony Pictures Classics’ Oscar-y film Foxcatcher.

Based on true events, director Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont and two champion wrestlers, Mark and Dave Schultz.

Having seen the film at the press screening this week, I can say Carell gives a chilling performance of du Pont and is the highlight of the film. Expect to hear his name, a lot, over upcoming awards season. Bennett Miller won Best Director at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in May and the film has screened at the Telluride, Toronto, New York, and London film festivals.

Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo Star In New Foxcatcher Trailer And Photos

Sony Pictures Classics has sent us the new theatrical trailer and photos from director Bennett Miller’s film Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall.

Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont and two champion wrestlers, Mark and Dave Schultz.

Foxcatcher is a rich and moving story of brotherly love, misguided loyalty and the corruption and emotional bankruptcy that can accompany great power and wealth. As with Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller’s previous feature films, Capote and Moneyball, he explores large themes in society through his complex character portraits of real people.

Steve Carell’s fans will be surprised to see him in a role as dark and challenging as John du Pont, a man of immense wealth and power whose downward spiral culminates in murder and imprisonment.

Foxcatcher Teaser Trailer – Channing Tatum Incites Curious Oscar Buzz

Foxcatcher has been managing a lot of hype since at least last November, and the release of the teaser trailer has caused quite a stir. The internet is throwing the name around, as well as both Channing Tatum‘s and Steve Carell‘s, connected with ideas like “Oscar contender,” and “Award worthy,” and while the trailer gives hope for a solid film, I have to wonder exactly where all the love is coming from.

To be fair, a lot of the discussion is obviously coming from people who have seen the film (it was at Cannes), but a lot of it is also coming from people who haven’t. The trailer gives us a Channing Tatum who stares very seriously, smacks himself across the face, and bashes his head into a mirror. Steve Carell is wearing a lot of latex on his face, and says, “Good,” while apparently doing a kind of Godfather impression.

First Poster For Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher Stars Channing Tatum

Sony Pictures Classics has released the first teaser poster from director Bennett Miller’s upcoming film Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall, Vanessa Redgrave and Mark Ruffalo. (via People.com)

Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between an eccentric multi-millionaire and two champion wrestlers.

Miller won Best Director in May at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. The film is written by E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman.

Ramin Setoodeh (Variety) said “Carell gives one of the most transformative performances of the year” and the actor is “an Oscar lock.”

Todd McCarthy (The Hollywood Reporter) wrote,”Playing a young man who doesn’t have a clue how to articulate his feelings and suffers for it, Tatum is a smoldering, festering piece of emotional raw meat, able to be manipulated this way and that by his benefactor.
