Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Safe House,' 'The Vow'& More

February 6th, 2012 11:00am EST
Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies
It turned out that my initial optimism about “The Woman in Black” last week was for naught. Unfortunately it is a ridiculous horror movie that made me laugh much more than it actually scared me. For more on why I thought it was silly, check out my review.

This week in theaters, there will be a nice mix of action, romance, adventure, and drama. You’ll have the chance to see Denzel Washington’s action thriller “Safe House,” the tragic Rachel McAdams romance picture “The Vow,” the lighthearted adventure film “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” the Woody Harrelson Los Angeles cop drama “R...

The 11 Best From 2011

December 31st, 2011 11:00am EST
Southland
2011 was a fantastic year for entertainment. Here are my eleven favorite things from the year that's about to wrap, in chronological order...

1. Southland, TNT

(Season 3 began January 4)

I have to admit that I didn't keep up with TNT's gritty Los Angeles cop drama as much as I would have liked; it fell victim to sharing Tuesday nights with three other shows on my watch list. Yet when I did find time to catch it, I was no less than impressed every time.

There's been talk about the show's TV-MA content (allegedly the reason that NBC axed it), but the real talking point should be the st...

Everyone loves a hero. They stand up for what’s right, battle the forces of evil, and somehow manage to look sexy in spandex. But sometimes one hero isn’t enough.

Newly single stars Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn avoided a face-to-face reunion on Saturday as the former lovers both attended the Spike Guys' Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

The actors were said to have enjoyed a brief romance before news of the break-up emerged earlier this week.

But there was no awkward meet-up at the glitzy California bash - Johansson walked the red carpet, while Penn arrived late to accept an award from Robert De Niro as his 1982 movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High was inducted into the Guy Movie Hall of Fame.

Hulk Hogan is "completely devastated" by the death of his old friend Randy Savage because they only recently patched up their differences after more than a decade of no contact.

Savage, widely known as Macho Man, was killed in a car crash in Tampa, Florida on Friday morning after suffering a heart attack behind the wheel, his brother Lanny Poffo has told TMZ.com. He was 58.

Fighter-turned-actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson led the tributes to the wrestling icon soon after news of the tragedy broke, and now Hogan and a host of other industry professionals have added their sympathies.

Review: Lin's 'Fast Five' Is Furiously Long

April 29th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Fast Five
When you hear that the runtime for “Fast Five” is 130 minutes, you’ll probably wonder why a mere 90, is not enough to unravel the fifth “Fast and the Furious” yarn. Ultimately, the reason is that the filmmakers tell an overly complex tale, in an effort to milk the actors, the chase sequences, and even the series itself for all they are worth.

Picking up where the fourth film left off, “Fast Five” starts with flashbacks to the sentencing of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and his transportation to captivity. En route, his pal Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and his sister Mia (Jordana Brewster)...

Ten years and still going strong -- Fast Five cements the staying power of the Fast and the Furious series.

2009's Fast & Furious was the real sequel that The Fast and the Furious deserved, and Fast Five is an equally remarkable follow-up to that film, picking up from the final minutes of Fast & Furious and charging forward. This new entry has all the hallmarks that fans have come to expect from the series: great cars, terrific driving, beautiful women, and a definite adrenaline rush.

Hugh Jackman has been taking tips from former wrestler Dwayne Johnson as he struggles to bulk up for his latest Wolverine movie.

The Australian actor is bringing his X-Men character back for a second solo outing and director Darren Aronofsky has ordered him to hit the gym and make sure he is even more muscled for the X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel.

Jackman admits he's finding it tough to put on 25 pounds of muscle for the role as the clawed mutant before filming begins early next year, so he called The Rock for advice.

From the instant the camera opens on Dwayne Johnson in “Faster” it is obvious that this revenge film is going to leave behind a hefty trail of bodies. The hardened convict, who is introduced only as “Driver,” has been anxiously pacing his prison cell working up a sweat in anticipation for his release.

Once he steps into the light of day, we follow him on a brisk run from the grounds of the prison to a junk yard where his shiny black Chevelle, a list of names, and a loaded six-shooter are waiting for him. Without wasting any time, Driver guns his car onto the road ready to start his missi...

'Sex And The City 2': Fail In The U.S., Fab In The U.K.

The "Sex And The City" girls can rely on their fans in the U.K. - their movie sequel has strutted to the top of the British box office, just days after failing to excite U.S. cinemagoers.

The highly-anticipated film failed to hit the top spot in America over the Memorial Day weekend, losing out to both "Shrek Forever After" and "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time."

But Brit devotees of the hit TV series-turned-movie franchise flocked to catch the return of Carrie Bradshaw.

The sequel shot to the top of the box office with a $9.2 million opening weekend.
