Portia de Rossi Says Steven Seagal ''Unzipped'' His Pants During Audition
Arrested Development actress Portia de Rossi took to Twitter on Wednesday to recount an alleged experience while trying to audition for a movie for the Above the Law actor Steven Seagal. The 44-year-old star, who is a lesbian and married to Ellen DeGeneres, tweeted, "My final audition for a Steven Segal movie took place in his office. He told me how important it was to have chemistry off-screen as he sat me down and unzipped his leather pants. I ran out and called my agent. Unfazed, she replied, 'well, I didn't know if he was your type.'[sic]" The Arrested Development star tweeted the recounting to her 339K followers on Wednesday afternoon. Soon after, Ellen tweeted her support of the...

‘American Vandal’ Goes Above The Law For Season 2

While it’s not the renewal notice we’re waiting for (that belongs to “Mindhunter“), we’re still pretty pleased that “American Vandal” is getting a second season from Netflix.

Pitched as true crime mockumentary series, the show from co-creators and executive producers Dan Perrault and Tony Yacenda cleverly pivoted from its “Who drew the dicks?” premise into a pretty observant look at the realities of high school life.

Steven Seagal Calls Female Reporters "F--king Dirty Whores" and "C--ksuckers"

Steven Seagal Calls Female Reporters
A recording has surfaced of Steven Seagal calling female reporters a number of disturbing names. The recording, obtained by Daily Mail TV, is of an interview with Seagal in which he talks about doing press for his movie Above the Law in 1988. "Well, I found that interestingly enough, the few times that I had a hard time, it was usually with women," the actor can be heard saying in the recording. "When somebody is on tour, a promotional tour, he's there to talk about his film, not about who he's f--ked or who he would like to f--k or who his wife was with ten years ago." Seagal continued, "They should go into pornography or something else instead of journalism if they...

Brawl in Cell Block 99 Review: Vince Vaughn Has Never Been Better

Brawl in Cell Block 99 Review: Vince Vaughn Has Never Been Better
There are certain movies where the title really lays it all out there for you, like Zach and Miri Make a Porno (which director Kevin Smith reportedly sold to The Weinstein Company based on just the title alone), last year's Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and this weekend's fantastically blunt Brawl in Cell Block 99. The economy of language here is really quite incredible, because, in just five short words, it tells you so much. "Brawl" lets you know right away that there will be action and violence, and that there are a lot of people in the mix, as opposed to a "fight" which is usually between two people. As you can see in the Cell Block 99 trailer, the footage clues us into the setting, a prison, a big one, apparently, with a lot of cell blocks, so right away, just in saying those five words, you know

Venice Film Review: ‘Above The Law’

Venice Film Review: ‘Above The Law’
It’s no real spoiler to say that the rot goes right to the very top in Jean-François Hensgens and François Troukens’ capable and contained Brussels-set thriller “Above the Law.” The architecture of the seedy crime movie, in which gangster ruthlessness vies with police corruption in a kind of venality derby, is very familiar, as is the hard-boiled conclusion that a criminal with a code is better than a cop with none. But “Above the Law” — which manages to be a less generic title than its French-language original, “Tueurs” (“Killers”) — has more than just the fluid competence of its filmmaking to recommend it. While hardly boasting the most original of plots, it is informed by an authenticity rare for this popular genre with its pre-packaged tropes and formulae. That makes a certain gritty sense when you understand that Troukens, who co-wrote the film with Giordano Gederlini, is himself a fairly notorious ex-gangster; certain elements within this otherwise

Venice Film Review: ‘Mektoub My Love: Canto Uno’

Venice Film Review: ‘Mektoub My Love: Canto Uno’
Late in “Mektoub My Love: Canto Uno,” two characters make plans for a quiet, home-cooked pasta dinner. Just tomatoes, basil and garlic for the sauce, slow-cooked until rich and integrated in flavor: It’s critical, they agree, that it takes its time to simmer. Abdellatif Kechiche’s filmmaking often follows a similar recipe of everyday components turned flavorfully complex with the patient investment of time: It’s how his Palme d’Or-winning “Blue is the Warmest Color” turned an ostensibly simple story of first love and heartbreak into a human odyssey of intricate interior detail. Another gorgeous three-hour study of young, attractively housed hearts in often turbulent motion, “Mektoub” is a frequently seductive sensory epic of equivalent ambition, yet despite its woozily pleasurable set pieces, the fraught emotions binding them are less urgent, and the perspective of its protagonist far less immediate.

Somehow Kechiche — loosely adapting the novel “La blessure, la

'Above the Law' ('Tueurs'): Film Review | Venice 2017

'Above the Law' ('Tueurs'): Film Review | Venice 2017
Brussels sprouts with crime and corruption in Above the Law (Tueurs), a lean Belgian thriller that's as generic as both its Anglophone and original titles. Starring Dardenne brothers favorite Olivier Gourmet as a veteran robber embarking on the inevitable "one last job," this French co-production has a streak of convincing authenticity in its smaller details, likely traceable to the criminal pedigree of its ex-jailbird co-director/co-writer Francois Troukens.

Since serving six years of a 28-year-sentence for a series of van heists in the 1990s, Troukens has become something of a media celebrity in his native Belgium, and his promotional smarts should...

Foreign Productions Flock to Brussels’ Locations, Tax Incentives

Foreign Productions Flock to Brussels’ Locations, Tax Incentives
The city of Brussels has seen a lot of excitement lately. Gangsters have been running wild with racing-car drivers, the Hitler Youth have taken to marching in the street, and a submarine has sunk, costing hundreds of lives. It’s fair to say that, even as far as movie shoots go, Brussels is nothing if not diverse, playing itself in the 1980s for Michael R. Roskam’s crime drama “Racer and the Jailbird,” doubling as wartime Berlin in Amma Asante’s powerful love story “Where Hands Touch,” and even dressing up as Russia in Thomas Vinterberg’s “Kursk,” the story of the Russian submarine that exploded underwater during a naval exercise in 2000. No wonder they’re calling it “the queen of filming locations.”

There are many reasons for the rise of Brussels as an international shooting hub, starting with its location in the heart of Europe, just 80 minutes from Paris and two hours by Eurostar from London

Hey Lrm Weekenders, we've hit double-digits!

'Cartels': Film Review

'Cartels': Film Review
The main question you’ll be asking yourself while watching Keoni Waxman’s Cartels will be, “Why is Steven Seagal still a thing?” Sure, the veteran action star had a galvanizing screen presence back in the day. And he made some surprisingly good movies, especially his debut, 1988’s Above the Law, and 1992’s Under Siege. But nostalgia only goes so far, and the aging actor, whose hair and goatee are amazingly still jet-black at the age of 65, has long been phoning it in. This vehicle is one of seven — count ‘em, seven — movies that Seagal made last year, and...

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 4: Thicker Than Water Review

I’d complained previously about how far Telltale Games had gotten away from its adventure game roots during The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, as it really stuck out in the previous episode Above the Law. That’s why I was thrilled to see that the fourth instalment, Thicker Than Water, starts out with Javier once again stuck inside a jail cell. This time, I had to actually walk around, examine objects and figure out a way to escape entrapment.

The scene didn’t flex my wit, as I simply had to pick up a stool and walk over to the window, but it was refreshing to be able to finally explore at my own pace again. Thankfully, this isn’t just a one-off, as there are actually three scenes in Thicker Than Water that give agency back over to the player. There’s still plenty of quick time

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 3: Above The Law Review

I left the second episode of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier feeling tired. There were very few fresh ideas and the story began to revisit ground that past titles had already covered. With terrible tragedies occurring every few minutes, it felt like the game only knew how to move the player by using death to play with emotions.

Now that two months have passed, Telltale is back with the third episode, titled Above the Law. It picks up right where episode two ended, with season protagonist Javier finding out that his brother’s running the settlement that had attacked him earlier. It wasn’t the most shocking twist, despite the reactions of the characters on-screen, but it seemed like the brother dynamic would be an interesting one for the game to explore, especially with Javier getting close to David’s wife, Kate.
