Gangs Protected The Set Of 'Brooklyn's Finest'

February 25th, 2010 2:23pm EST
Brooklyn
Director Antoine Fuqua recruited New York gang members to protect stars Richard Gere, Wesley Snipes, Don Cheadle and Ethan Hawke on the set of their new movie Brooklyn's Finest.

The movie follows a trio of drug cops in a rough New York neighborhood and was filmed on location in the deprived area of Brownsville. Fuqua admits he feared for the safety of his cast and crew during the shoot.

He tells WENN, "We would be filming and then you'd hear gunfire and people running up the street. It was very real to be around a lot of that stuff. We were protected by some gang members that we had rel...

The Top Hottest Vampires
Forget werewolves and witches, vampires have taken a bite out of pop culture and they're not going down without a fight.

Spotlight On Films In Which Technology Has Gone Awry: Our Grim Future Awaits

September 23rd, 2009 12:43pm EDT
Surrogates
As we look forward to the future, we are hopeful that technology and the overall standard of living will continue to improve. Many films set in the distant or even in the more immediate future paint it as a grim place where our dependence on technology has blinded us to our own humanity.

We are reminded that technology yields great power and that great power can corrupt our souls. Films portraying this version of our future are meant to provoke commentary about the ethical dilemmas the characters face and to help steer humanity in a more thoughtful direction.

Film's Most Memorable Football Coaches

September 8th, 2009 12:00pm EDT
Knute Rockne Win One for the Gipper
With football season right around the corner, it's time to take a look back at the way Hollywood has immortalized coaches over the years. While most football movies focus on the players, a few have turned their eyes to the men (and women) calling the shots, giving us several good and bad portrayals of coaches.

Tony D'Amato, "Any Given Sunday"

Oliver Stone's let's-throw-it-all-together-and-see-what-sticks football opus has its faults, but one of them is not Al Pacino's performance as the coach of the beleaguered Miami Sharks. Stone coaxes one of Pacino's last great efforts by allowing...

Top 10 Acting Performances By Athletes

August 27th, 2009 10:35am EDT
Cam Neely as Seabass
A director getting the optimum performance out of an actor is not unlike a coach getting a great performance out of an athlete. One has to use the right guy in the right scene with expert timing. These are situations where one could film countless scenes of all different kinds, and getting laughs so big with these athletes would seem impossible - they're almost perfect. Remember, the fellas on this list appear here because they got the biggest laughs, not because they were the best actors or in the best movies. While Something About Mary is a funnier and better movie than many on this l...

Michael Crichton's Best Films

Michael Crichton
With the untimely death of Michael Crichton, now is the time to reflect on a career that, unfortunately, was wrought with too much of something that is usually a positive: intelligence. Indeed, Michael was too smart for the movie industry and its core audience.

Crichton obviously had a non-stop mind: he graduated Harvard with high honors, and while attending medical school he began writing. When he turned 27 he was he had an M.D., and he had also finished one of his more well-known books, Andromeda Strain.

Generally, his works incorporate his intellect of biology and medical scie...

Race Matters: Is Hollywood Truly Color Blind When It Comes To On-Screen Romance?

September 29th, 2008 9:49am EDT
Die Another Day
In John Grisham's bestselling novel "The Pelican Brief," investigative journalist Gray Grantham and law student Darby Shaw uncover a political conspiracy and in the process, end up between the sheets. In the 1993 film version, Darby Shaw (played by Julia Roberts) and Grantham merely share a chaste hug in the film's conclusion. What happened between page and screen? One theory: In the novel Grantham is white; in the film, he's portrayed by Academy-Award winning - and black - actor Denzel Washington.

The stigma of interracial relationships in cinema can be traced back to the 1934 Motio...

Spike Lee's Best & Not-So-Best Films

August 11th, 2008 9:00am EDT
Spike Lee
It's difficult to rank the films of Spike Lee in order of best to worst because, quite frankly, the auteur hasn't really made a horrible film. With nearly 20 feature films under his belt and more to come (his upcoming WWII film looks promising) Lee has of course put out his share of minor works, but even the projects that failed still had enough of the director's signature characteristics-fascinating characters, intriguing dialogue, and race relation undertones-and ultimately are merely cinematic experiments gone wrong. Consider this a list of best and minor works of one of America's finest...

Wesley Snipes' Attorneys File Appeal To Have Tax Evasion Trial Moved From Central Florida

January 6th, 2008 11:30am EST
Wesley Snipes
OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Wesley Snipes is trying again to have his federal tax-evasion trial moved from this central Florida city.

Snipes' lawyer, Robert Barnes, filed a motion with a federal appeals court in Atlanta on Friday, arguing that U.S. District Judge William T. Hodges erred last month when he denied Snipes' motions to relocate and postpone the trial.

The actor's legal team argued Snipes cannot get a fair trial in Ocala, located about 80 miles north of Orlando. Snipes previously filed two motions to dismiss or transfer the trial because of racial prejudices.

Big Screen To Little Screen: Some Series Shine Will Others Fail

Buffy
Often we don’t realize that our favorite TV shows began as vehicles on the big screen. Many of television’s best programs started that way. Then again, so did some of the worst.

In 1974, Ellen Burstyn starred in the Oscar awarded Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. The movie was such a success that it was turned into “Alice,” complete with Vic Tayback as Mel. Unfortunately, it was Polly Holiday who made the sitcom a success. By the time she left the show and was replaced in 1980 by the original Flo, Diane Ladd, the damage had already been done. The series soon met its demise.
