Brendan Gleeson in Calvary

You’re Not You | Review

You-Hoo: Wolfe’s Als Drama Tries To Balance Sentiment With Schmaltz

Hilary Swank seems attracted to playing daunted heroines, continually up against considerable odds—the homophobic rednecks of Boys Don’t Cry, the white trash family unit of Million Dollar Baby, Gary Marshall’s ineptness in New Year’s Eve, and recently the misogyny of the Old West in The Homesman. Her latest drama, You’re Not You, finds the actress experiencing the deteriorating effects of Als (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder. Though winning two Oscars, Swank isn’t always the herald of great cinema, more often than not making questionable choices for someone of her caliber and talent. Flanked by co-stars like Emmy Rossum and Josh Duhamel, a director whose last film was Nights in Rodanthe (2008), and co-written by Shana Feste, the director of sugary sap like The Greatest (2009) and Country Strong

Baymax Needs Upgrades in Disney & Marvel's 'Big Hero 6' Full Trailer

Following our first look at the new line-up of animated heroes in Disney and Marvel's Big Hero 6, the first full trailer has arrived. However, we don't get much of a look at characters we haven't seen yet. Most of the trailer focuses on Hiro Hamada getting interrogated by police after he encounters some bad guy with "microbots" while Baymax tries to fix himself with tape. And then we get to see Hiro upgrading his puffy robot so he can fly, which is pretty cool. We do get a brief encounter with some of the new heroes as they are chased by the villain, but they're not wearing their superhero suits yet. This still looks great though. Watch! Here's the first full trailer for Disney & Marvel's Big Hero 6, originally from Moviefone: Big Hero 6 is co-directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) with a script

Robot Baymax Peeks Out on Disney's Two Posters for 'Big Hero 6'

Last month finally brought our first official look at Marvel and Disney's animated collaboration with an adaptation of Big Hero 6, and we got a glimpse of robotics prodigy Hiro along with his chubby, playful robot Baymax. Now a couple new posters show off the cute robot and would-be crimefighter being as adorable as can be. Baymax peeks out on one poster, while another features Hiro attempting to apply the sleek armor he's designed, just like in the teaser trailer, but the robot's big gut is creating some problems. We're very excited to see more from the animated comic book adaptation, and we'll keep you updated. Look! Here's two new posters for Disney & Marvel's Big Hero 6 from Imp Awards: Big Hero 6 is co-directed by Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) with a script that Jordan Roberts (3,2,1...Frankie Go Boom) co-wrote with the former.

Must Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Marvel & Disney's 'Big Hero 6'

It's time to meet Hiro Hamada and his adorable robot friend Baymax in the first cute trailer for Disney & Marvel's first animated collaboration, Big Hero 6. There's no indication of the story or voice cast, but we do get a hint of what this young robotics prodigy wants to do with his chubby, squishy robot as he's trying to fit him into some heroic armor. However, all the robot seems to want is the soccer ball. It's hard to get a vibe of the entire film since we don't see any of the other crime fighters that Hiro aspires to join with Baymax, but the teaser trailer is amusing. We're definitely looking forward to seeing more. Watch the trailer below!

Price: DVD $24.98, Blu-ray $39.99

Amanda Seyfried is adult film icon Linda Lovelace in Lovelace.

Amanda Seyfried (In Time) and Peter Sarsgaard (Green Lantern) star in a 2013 film drama about the iconic Seventies adult film star Linda Lovelace in the drama Lovelace.

Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor (Sarsgaard). As Linda Lovelace, she became an international sensation—less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio.

Frankie Go Boom – The Blu Review

Did you have that mean older brother that made your childhood Hell with obnoxious pranks and bullying? Imagine if that sibling as an adult videotaped you in a sex act where you couldn’t quit ‘perform’ and posted it online for all the world to see. That’s the hilarious premise of Frankie Go Boom, a raunchy comedy about brothers, families, alcoholic porn stars, a domestic pig, and Ron Perlman in drag.

Frankie Go Boom opens with a home video from someone’s suburban childhood, as young Bruce tricks his little brother Frankie into falling into a pit. Their mother rushes out in her bathrobe screaming with her boobs popping out. Jump ahead twenty years and Frankie’s (Charlie Hunnam) brother Bruce (Chris O’Dowd) has just got out of prison and is back in his life, something Frankie is not too happy about. His whole life Bruce has been

Frankie Go Boom Blu-ray Review

Writer-director Jordan Roberts' Frankie Go Boom is one of those films that seemed destined for cult comedy status.  The premise is simple enough: a young man, tormented all his life by his older brother's pranks, must track down an unauthorized and rather embarrassing sex tape before it gets out to the general public.  Then you look at the impressive cast - Charlie Hunnam, Chris O'Dowd, Lizzy Caplan, Chris Noth and Ron Perlman - and you wonder, how can this one possibly miss?  I decided to check out the newly-released Blu-ray to find out.  Hit the jump to check out my review. The Feature: Since we haven't reviewed the feature film here before, I'll do a brief rundown and share my thoughts.  I was initially interested in Frankie Go Boom for two reasons: the cast and the possibility of this becoming a cult comedy.  I'm a fan of Hunnam from

Blu Review: Frankie Go Boom

  • Cinelinx
Cinelinx rumbles with the Frankie Go Boom Blu-ray!

The Set-up

Frank (Charlie Hunnam) has his world turned upside down when his loser brother Bruce (Chris O'Dowd) puts a video of his one night stand online. Also stars Lizzy Caplan, Chris Noth, Ron Perlman, and a pig.

Written and Directed by:  Jordan Roberts

The Delivery

Frankie Go Boom boasts a pretty talented cast: Sons of Anarchy stars Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman, as well as Lizzy Caplan, Chris O'Dowd, and Chris Noth. Unfortunately, the film relies less on the characters or genuine humor for laughs, and more on uncomfortable situations and humiliation. With only a handful of exceptions, it doesn't work. It's really too bad, because there is a potentially enjoyable, quirky little comedy here. It is just buried under a number of groan-worthy scenes that make you wonder what director/screenwriter Jordan Roberts was thinking.

 

Frankie (Charlie Hunnam) is actually

'Cloud Atlas', 'Liz & Dick' and 'Texas Chainsaw' on DVD and Blu-ray This Week

Cloud Atlas The Wachowskis and co-director Tom Tykwer tackled some interesting things with Cloud Atlas and it had one of the best scores of last year, but I can't deny the fact I really have no interest in returning to it. The Blu-ray does have a large number of features to explore and perhaps a little more discussion could improve my impression, but after seeing it in Toronto last year, and discussing it there, I'm not sure there is much that could be revealed to change my opinion that much.

 

A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III Written and directed by Roman Coppola, this one arrived shortly after he and Wes Anderson were nominated for an Oscar for their Moonrise Kingdom screenplay, but the reviews and comments I've seen don't suggest this is a film worth searching out and, in all honesty, the involvement of Charlie Sheen turns
