10 Things About The Crow You Never Knew

10 Things About The Crow You Never Knew
The Crow was a massive hit when the comic book tale was eventually released in May, 1994, but sadly, its star was no longer here to witness its success. The Crow is a dark, brooding, gothic, action filled meditation on revenge, justice, love, and the afterlife, strengthened with bits of dark humor and a haunting performance by the late Brandon Lee, who was tragically killed in an on-set accident.

The Crow is remembered for Lee's brilliant portrayal of the movie's hero, musician Eric Draven, who returns from the dead to extract revenge on the Motor City thugs who murdered both him and his fianc&#233. A supernatural bird guides Draven through Detroit on Devil's Night, one year to the date after crime kingpin Top Dollar ordered his henchmen to kill the soon to be wed young couple. One by one, Eric makes his way through Tin Tin, Funboy, T-Bird, and Skank, until

Watch Patrick Dempsey Go From Quirky '80s Star to Silver Fox in 27 Photos
Patrick Dempsey has been in the spotlight for more than 30 years now, but we still can't get over how handsome he is. The 50-year-old actor first stole hearts with his roles in movies like Can't Buy Me Love, Mobsters, and Loverboy, but it wasn't until he became Dr. Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy that our hearts really started pumping. Aside from his impressive acting career, Patrick is a devoted family man; he's been married to his wife, Jillian Fink, since 1999 (they briefly split last year), and is father to kids Talula, Sullivan, and Darby. Cheers to many more years of being able to stare into those McDreamy eyes!

Series finale review: 'Boardwalk Empire' - 'Eldorado'

Series finale review: 'Boardwalk Empire' - 'Eldorado'
"Boardwalk Empire" came to an end tonight. I spoke at length with creator Terence Winter, and I have a review of the finale coming up just as soon as I think about the things I want in life, then imagine myself in a dress... "What are you in the end, anyway?" "I'm what I need to be." "How's that make you anything at all? -The Commodore & Nucky And so "Boardwalk Empire" died as it lived: with a tightly-plotted installment that paid off many storylines from both the final season and the entire series, and one where the most memorable, powerful scene involved someone other than Nucky Thompson. Although the Nucky material was pretty damn powerful and satisfying in its own right. The most powerful scene in question: Al Capone telling his son about his impending prison sentence, and the boy not only offering to help his dad, but putting up

‘Stranded’ Review

Stars: Christian Slater, Brendan Fehr, Amy Matysio, Michael Therriault | Written by Christian Piers Betley | Directed by Roger Christian

Whereas the name Christian Slater once meant a sign of a great movie (I’m thinking of the likes of Heathers, Mobsters, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and his magnum opus, Pump Up the Volume), today it tends to mean low-budget, badly scripted straight to DVD fodder. The last Slater film I watched, Sofia, was a bit of a mess. The film could have been an action-packed espionage thriller, but instead the film saw both actor and director seemingly out of their depth – with Slater literally trying to “act” like a tough guy without backing it up with any actual physicality. So I approached Stranded with a bit of trepidation, even moreso given that director Roger Christian was responsible for the atrocity that was Battlefield Earth

Making it’s world premiere here in the UK,

Lawless (2012)

Directed by John Hillcoat

Written by Nick Cave, from the book by Matt Bondurant

featuring Tom Hardy, Shia LeBoeuf, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Mia Wasikowska

Lawless is not the gritty, realistic, slice-of-America’s-criminal-history for which you might have been hoping; instead it is gloriously overdone, cheesy, trite, and completely meaningless.

I’m beginning to think Shia LeBoeuf is not a very good actor. I really liked him the first time I saw him in anything, which I think was that Nickelodeon show Even Stevens (don’t ask), and I said, “that kid is pretty good.” Then he ended up making really huge blockbustery type films with absolutely no meaning and really horrible dialogue like Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Stupid Alien Crystal Skull Things. I thought, before I saw Lawless, that maybe he just picks really shitty movies that don’t show how good of an actor he is.

21 Jump Street: Q & A With Phil Lord And Chris Miller

Thn were fortunate enough to put some questions to 21 Jump Street co-writers and directors, Chris Miller and Phil Lord. The duo seem to thrive on creating challenges for themselves; not only were they making their first foray into live-action filmmaking (after cutting their teeth with the animated comedy Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs), they decided ‘that’ first attempt, would be an update of an American teen-cop show that ran between 1987-1991.

21 Jump Street may not be as iconic as The A-team or Mission: Impossible, which have also made the transition to the big-screen, but it did feature a young Johnny Depp, swaggering and giving moody looks throughout. It also starred the equally-lusted after (at the time) heartthrob Richard Grieco (who left the show early to star in the likes of Teen Agent and Mobsters), before eventually seeing his career flounder, while Depp’s flourished.

The show was actually

New Trailer For 21 Jump Street

21 Jump Street is the new action-comedy based on the 80′s cult series of the same name. The show made the careers of Johnny Depp and Richard Grieco (briefly with Teen Agent and Mobsters) and featured a police programme where ‘young-looking cops’ are placed undercover in high-schools to root out drug dealers and criminals. The new film features a slim-line Jonah Hill partnered with former school bully Channing Tatum in the recently revived operation. Here is a look at the new film.

21 Jump Street co-stars Ice Cube, Ellie Kemper, Rob Riggle and has Johnny Depp cameoing as his former character Tom Hanson.

The Asylum's Almighty Thor Hammers Kevin Nash, Richard Grieco, and a Top Model

Marvel's Thor may have Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins as Odin, but could Hopkins powerbomb a guy through a table like pro wrestler "Big Sexy" Kevin Nash, who will be playing the ruler of Asgard in The Asylum's mockbuster Almighty Thor? Advantage: The Asylum.

Filming is under way on the Almighty Thor under the direction of Chris Ray, his second stint at the helm of an Asylum production following Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, which, by the way, arrives on DVD shelves and inside Redboxes this Tuesday.

When the demon god Loki destroys the fortress of Valhalla and steals the Hammer of Invincibility, only the young hero Thor can protect Earth from Armageddon.

Relative newcomer Cody Deal stars in the title role. Looking him up on IMDb reveals he looks the part far more than "Home Improvement" kid grown up Zachery Ty Bryan did when he was horribly miscast as an

The Oscar will now be taken back from ...: Seven winner who can give back their golden boys

There’s no end of blogging about wrong-headed Oscar wins. The litany of complaints about “Shakespeare in Love” winning over “Saving Private Ryan,” or “Forrest Gump” over “Pulp Fiction,” or “The Greatest Show on Earth” over any of the other nominees that year, not to mention how Gwyneth Paltrow won over Cate Blanchett for “Shakespeare,” or Costner over Scorsese for “Dances with Wolves.”

Sometimes, though, the win is totally justified; it’s the body of work after the win that drags the winner down, and makes you wonder if maybe the Oscar win wasn’t just some sort of one-trick point, a gold-plated piece of lightning in a bottle. That’s why there’s no quibbling in this post about the quality of the performances, but rather about everything that came afterwards.

With the 2009 nominations coming out tomorrow, and with plenty of nitpicking sure to abound, I’m presenting seven
