Movies New to Netflix in April: ‘Seven,’ ‘The Iron Giant,’ ‘Scarface’ and More

April showers might bring May flowers, but what to do during the rainy season? Why, modern movie-lover does when the weather outside is frightful, curl up with some Netflix. (Maybe get some chill in there, if you’re lucky). While not the most romantic of movies, classic crime lovers can enjoy Brian De Palma’s “Scarface,” which lands on the platform next month. After you get your fix of an infinitely quotable and smoldering Al Pacino, you can jump ahead to the equally as disturbing David Fincher classic, “Seven.”

A few tear-jerking Oscar winners also head to Netflix in April, including the Nicole Kidman, Renée Zellweger-starring “Cold Mountain,” and Roberto Benigni’s WWII drama “Life Is Beautiful.” For lighter fare, check out “The Iron Giant,” or both live-action “The Flinstones” movies (for my Rosie O’Donnell die-hards).

Hopefully, that’s enough to keep you busy until May. Check out

Hailey Baldwin's Evolution From Cute Celebrity Kid to Stunning Model

Hailey Baldwin's Evolution From Cute Celebrity Kid to Stunning Model
Hailey Baldwin has turned quite a few heads in recent years. The 20-year-old and daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin has gone from a cute celebrity kid to a stunning runway model and member of a growing entourage of hot young stars. She wasn't even in kindergarten yet when her dad started taking her to family fun nights at movie premieres. As a child, she has walked the red carpets at screenings for films such as The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, Shrek 3 and The Pink Panther 2. When she was about 13, she accompanied her dad to the 2010 ESPYs. A year later, they attended the premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. She and Justin Bieber became good friends and would...

Film Review: ‘The Time of Their Lives’

Film Review: ‘The Time of Their Lives’
There is nothing like a dame, and at the grand age of 83, Dame Joan Collins is still nothing like one — not by the Queen’s definition of the term, at least. Yet with the British honours system having finally smiled on her, the erstwhile star of disco-era smutfests “The Bitch” and “The Stud” has belatedly decided to emulate Dame Judi, Dame Maggie and the “Best Exotic” club with a respectably genteel geriatric comedy of her own. Enter “The Time of Their Lives,” a likably lame rattletrap of a road movie that gets what limited spark it has from the “Dynasty” diva’s still-lascivious on-screen charisma.

As a pair of lonely pensioners thrown together by chance on an episodic Gallic escapade, the strutting star is agreeably paired up with long-neglected namesake Pauline Collins; Roger Goldby’s narratively lumpy film shamelessly cribs from the latter’s Oscar-nominated breakout “Shirley Valentine” in espousing

The world lost two famous supporting screen talents this weekend. Firstly, comedian and famed character actor Taylor Negron died at the age of 57 after a long battle with cancer. You may not recognise the name, but his deadpan delivery and complete lack of fear about tackling all sorts of topics will long be remembered.

Negron is best known for numerous bit roles in various films and TV shows including "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "The Last Boy Scout," "Easy Money," "River's Edge," "Punchline," "Angels in the Outfield," "Spy Hard," "Bio-Dome," Chairman of the Board," "The Thin Pink Line," "Stuart Little," "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas ," "The In Crowd," "Loser," "The Hughleys," "So Little Time," "Funky Monkey," "The Aristocrats," "Three Days to Vegas," "Vamps" and more.

10 Most Unwatchable TV to Movie Adaptations

10 Most Unwatchable TV to Movie Adaptations
22 Jump Street is in theaters this weekend, and its one of the few TV-to-Movie franchises that has gotten it right. This comes after so many have gotten it really wrong! Adapting a hit television show to the big screen seems like it would be an easy thing. The source material is great, there's an existing audience, it should be money in the bank. But bigger does not mean better. There's more than enough examples of great TV turned into garbage cinema. So much so, there was a fair amount of difficulty and debate narrowing it down to ten, epically awful movies. Criteria had to be established. There must be a method to this madness. Terrible films like The Smurfs, Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear, or The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas still has an appeal to younger audiences who might actually be entertained by it. It does have some value.

A feature-length The Flintstones animation? Yabba dabba do it!

Hollywood has a bad track-record for cartoon to live-action adaptations, so it makes sense that Bedrock's most beloved characters should remain in their original, animated form

The Flintstones movie (1994) and its 2000 prequel, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, deserve to be trampled to death by herds of rampaging velociraptors, not least for the crime of casting Rick Moranis, then Stephen Baldwin, as poor Barney Rubble. And yet there is hope this week that the classic cartoon might yet carve a more attractive place for itself in the celluloid cliff face, after Warner Bros announced plans for a new big-screen adaptation.

There's no need this time around for producers to recruit the film industry's cuddliest actors to play Fred. Nor will bright young stars such as Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson be offered a chance to play Wilma and Betty, at least not in the flesh. Because the new Flintstones movie

Will Ferrell And Adam McKay To Produce An Animated Flintstones Movie

Yabba dabba doo! According to THR, Warner Bros. is reviving The Flintstones in the form of a new animated feature film to be produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.

When last we heard of the beloved “modern Stone Age family,” Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane was set to produce a new TV series, but the project was tabled after his pilot failed to impress the studio. Now, Warner Bros. is turning to their animation banner, Warner Animation Group (which was behind The Lego Movie) to bring the town of Bedrock to the big screen. Chris Henchy, who is partnered with Ferrell and McKay in Gary Sanchez Productions and co-wrote the script for Will Ferrell’s comedy The Campaign, has been hired to pen the screenplay for The Flintstones.

As someone who grew up watching re-runs of the immensely popular animated sitcom, I’m definitely excited at the prospect of seeing Fred,

'The Flintstones' Return in New Animated Movie from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay

'The Flintstones' Return in New Animated Movie from Will Ferrell and Adam McKay
Warner Bros. is teaming up with Gary Sanchez Productions' Will Ferrell and Adam McKay to bring The Flintstones back to the big screen with a new animated feature.

Chris Henchy has been tapped to write the screenplay. He is Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's partner at Gary Sanchez, and also wrote the script for The Campaign. Will Ferrell and Adam McKay will serve as executive producers for the project, which is still in the early stages of development.

The Flintstones debuted in 1960, producing 176 episodes in its six seasons on the air, setting a record for the longest-running animated series until The Simpsons shattered that mark. The show follows Fred Flintstone, his wife Wilma and their neighbors Barney and Betty Rubble, who live in the quaint town of Bedrock. No story details were given for this new version.

The TV series spawned the 1994 live-action movie The Flintstones, which starred John Goodman,

Madonna returns to the director's chair for 'Adé'
When Madonna unveiled her second directorial effort "W.E." at the Venice Film Festival in 2011, the critics (this one included) were pretty merciless. That glossy mashup of Wallis Simpson biopic and contemporary Harlequin romance was, admittedly, a pretty easy target -- The Weinstein Company's advance hype didn't fool anybody -- but the sheer vapid ineptitude of its storytelling still managed to surprise. Andrea Riseborough received some good notices for work as Simpson, Arianna Phillips' super-glam costumes were Oscar-nominated and Madge's own theme song even scooped a Golden Globe, but after this and her little-seen debut "Filth and Wisdom," no one seemed to be begging the pop queen to return to the director's chair. But hey, Madonna has never in her entire career been cowed by criticism, and she's not about to start now. It was announced earlier today that she is to direct her third feature "Adé" -- an adaptation of

Alan Cumming interview: 'I think I look ridiculous as a drag queen'

In his new film, Alan Cumming plays a colourful cross-dresser looking to adopt a neglected child. The star talks about his own plans for parenthood – and his dreadful dancing

Early in our conversation, Alan Cumming declares that he is not the flamboyant extrovert he appears to be on stage – which is, after all, where he has given his career-defining performances: a decade ago, as Emcee in Sam Mendes's Cabaret; and last year in his one-man Macbeth. Both will be spoken of long after everyone has forgotten his roles in The Smurfs, Garfield or The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.

At 48, there is certainly an enduring softness about Cumming. It's there in his accent (2% New York, but largely Scottish Highlands), his appearance (elfin with greying spiky hair) and his sentiments ("It's too easy to be mean in life"). And he is as understated as anyone can be while sporting a

WWE Gets in the Ring with The Flintstones Movie

  • kidspickflicks
There will be another Flintstones movie, this one sticking with animation. The previous two films, 1994's The Flintstones starring John Goodman and Rosie O'Donnell and it's prequel The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas starring Stephen Baldwin and Jane Krakowski, were live-action. The lead roles of Fred, Wilma and baby Pebbles and their best friends Barney, Betty and baby Bam-Bam Rubble have not been cast yet but side players have. WWE wrestlers will have a part of the action with John Cena playing John Cenastone, Cm Punk will become Cm Punkrock and WWE ringleader Vince McMahon will become Vince McMagma. Why is that? It's because WWE Studios is partnering with Warner Brothers on the movie. Also, the film isn't going to get a theatrical release, instead going straight to VOD and DVD.
