'Ender's Game' Review: Asa Butterfield Holds His Own Against Harrison Ford

November 1st, 2013 3:01pm EDT
'Ender's Game'
The film 'Ender's Game' was a pleasant surprise since I never read the book (written by Orson Scott Card). That might have something to do with the fact that I'm not a 12 year old teenage boy or girl. Apparently the book and its sequels sold zillions of copies.

For those of you who don't know what 'Ender's Game is about, here you go. There are these super nasty aliens, known as the Formics that have attacked Earth - I'd probably be nasty as well if I looked like them. Unless you find humongous insects with lots of arms your idea of beauty you won't taking these guys home to your mother any...

Fashion Fails: Kimberly Wyatt, Asa Butterfield, John Legend, More

Kimberly Wyatt
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Kimberly Wyatt wore this mishmash dress to the Pride of Britain awards, but there's no pride in wearing such a bizarre outfit. Her purse looks like a glittery Christmas card, on top of it all.

Ashley Roberts wore this questionable pair of overalls featuring a repeated face of a lion. One would think she was going for a Goth look with her black nails, but she retains her light hair and paints her lips a shocking red.

First 'Ender's Game' Trailer Puts Faith In The Next Generation

May 8th, 2013 1:07pm EDT
Ender's Game
What were you doing when you were 6 years old? In the new trailer for Ender's Game, Ender is saving the world.

Of course, in the film adaptation of the Orson Scott Card sci-fi classic, the kids are closer to 16 - we guess the production was gun-shy on the prospect of having a dramatic role in the hands of a group of 6 year-olds.

Instead, we have Asa Butterfield in the titular role (you may recognize him from Hugo), with Abigail Breslin and Hailee Steinfeld as his sister and classmate, respectively. All three of the young stars have been nominated for Academy Awards during their short care...

Interview - 'Hugo' Star Michael Stuhlbarg: The Film Is 'Like A Pop-Up Book In Real Life'

March 19th, 2012 6:00pm EDT
'Hugo'
Author’s note: This review contains spoilers.

Hugo star Michael Stuhlbarg seems to have been just as amazed by the world of the Oscar-winning film as fans and critics alike.

"It was amazing...like being in a pop-up book, but in real life," he said in a recent interview.

Indeed, 'Hugo' is a story that teems with childlike wonderment and curiosity. The film, based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret written and illustrated by Brian Selznick, tells the tale of an orphan who lives Paris’ Gare Montparnasse and his struggles to repair an automaton left to him by his father. As Hugo (Asa B...

Blu-ray 3D Review: 'Hugo' - Martin Scorsese's Homage To 'Cinemagician' Georges Méliès Proves 3D Isn't Just For Action Films

February 28th, 2012 9:37pm EST
Hugo Blu-ray 3D
When one thinks of Martin Scorsese rarely does the word 'family' cross their mind (unless they're thinking of Goodfellas, that is); and neither does the term 3D. So when the prolific director decided to bring Brian Selznick's 2007 children's book The Invention Of Hugo Cabret to life on the big screen - and in 3D - he was entering new territory.

The end result, Hugo, is nothing short of amazing. The film was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winning five: Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Visual Effects, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. Five reasons to see it the way it was meant to be...
