Dungeons & Dragons
The imaginary world of the most popular fantasy role-playing game ever comes to life in this special-effects-filled adventure.

In the Empire of Izmer, magic is the key to power in both the supernatural and political realms. The Mages are a sect who know the secrets of magic and use it to hold sway over the masses.

Jennie Garth, Peter Facinelli & More Read To Children At Milk & Bookies

Milk + Bookies
On Sunday, February 28, Milk + Bookies hosted their first annual Story Time Celebration at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles. Celebrities came to read books to children, who got to play with famous literary characters like Willy Wonka and The Man With the Yellow Hat.

Marlon Wayans got the all-time classic, Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham to read. “They asked me what I wanted to read and this one was a childhood favorite,” Wayans said. “My mom used to always read [it]. Actually, I learned to read on Dick and Jane books. Run, Dick, run. See Dick run. Stop Jane. Look at mom. None of that make...

Why All the Megan Fox Hate?

Why All the Megan Fox Hate?
It's barely three months since "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" crapped itself onto movie screens all over America, and already people want to declare the end of the Megan Fox fad. They talk about how she wasn't funny on Saturday Night Live. They talk about disappointing box office numbers for Jennifer's Body." They talk about how she doesn't say very smart things when she talks.

Most of all, they talk about how it's getting exhausting to hear about her every day. Google "Megan Fox afraid of the dark" and you get more than 59,000 results. Do the same with "Megan Fox doesn't like pa...

Review: 'G.I. Joe: The Rise Of The Cobra' Is Pretty Damn Entertaining

8/7/2009 2:23pm EDT
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
When comparing "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" to that awful fellow Hasbro monstrosity "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," "Joe" plays out like a goddamn Federico Fellini film. Coherent plot, well established characters, discernible action sequences (Also: no racist robot caricatures, so there's that). It's always kind of fun to write a negative review - especially when the studio doesn't screen it for said writer, early. Unfortunately, for those purposes, "G.I. Joe" is kinda, sorta ... good (!?) This wasn't the way it was supposed to be. THIS WASN'T THE WAY IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE!

'G.I. Joe' - The Latest In A Long Line Of Mediocre, Nostalgia Mining Blockbusters

8/5/2009 9:55am EDT
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
It's been over a month since Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen raked in $62 million on its opening day. Michael Bay's second installment to the Transformers series went on to make much more than that, currently cashing in over $796 million worldwide. Despite a phenomenal performance in the box office, Revenge of the Fallen was ripped apart by fans and critics alike. Critics balked at the movie’s obtuse premise that stretched for over two hours, while fans cringed at incomprehensible fight scenes, sloppy storytelling and dull characters. Even though Revenge of the Fallen suffered near unan...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies 7/26 - 8/1

8/3/2009 11:08am EDT
G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
Over the weekend, I caught Judd Apatow's new film "Funny People" starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen. "Funny People" lived up to my expectations; it's funny at points with an appropriate seriousness that's present throughout the movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed the bond that Sandler and Rogen's characters form over the course of the film. Rogen plays a socially awkward comic struggling to find his way, and Sandler is a jaded celebrity trying to make meaning out of his tragic situation. I was surprised by how unlikable Sandler's character is at points, revealing that his problems in life a...

'Dance Flick' Spoofs Old School Classics And New Hits

5/21/2009 11:46am EDT
Dance Flick
The Wayans Brothers have spoofed genre movies from blaxploitation to hood dramas to horror films. Now they're attacking the recent spate of dance movies. Dance Flick pokes fun at the Step Up movies, You Got Served, Save the Last Dance and more.

"Whenever you start seeing repetition in the same type of movie over and over again, it's time to get Wayansed," said director Damien Wayans.

Co-writer Marlon Wayans said that one film was the template for the spoof. "I think Save the Last Dance lent itself," Marlon said. "It was actually a good movie for the time. I'm not just saying this...

This Week's Movie Buzz: See It, Rent It, Or Skip It?

Terminator Salvation
The first three weeks of the summer movie season started out a bit slow, but from here the momentum really starts to build. There's a spike in the number of movies premiering with six coming out this week, two of which are sequels. One of those sequels is a movie I've been anticipating since I heard it was in development. Hint: it involves giant robots, and it's not "Transformers 2."

Opening in cinemas this week are "Terminator Salvation," "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian," "Dance Flick," "Easy Virtue," "The Girlfriend Experience," and "The Boys: The Sherman Brothers...

Coen Brothers Spotlight: From Their Beginnings To 'Burn After Reading'

Coen brothers
Many things come to mind when thinking about the films of Joel and Ethan Coen. Dark witty humor, highly stylized production and costume designs, reoccurring actors, clever and often poetic dialogue, and above all some of the best character names in celluloid history.

Just look back at some of the brothers' most memorable characters: The Snoat brothers in Raising Arizona, Bernie Bernbaum and Eddie Dane in Miller's Crossing, Lou Breeze in Barton Fink, Norville Barnes in The Hudsucker Proxy, the Swedish-Americans Marge Gunderson and Jerome Lundegaard in Fargo, Jackie Treehorn and Jesus Q...

Wayans Brothers Create 'Thugaboo' Cartoon

3/13/2006 9:53am EST
Marlon Wayans
Comedy brothers Shawn, Keenen Ivory and Marlon Wayans are aiming their latest project at kids after creating three cartoon specials called "Thugaboo." The animated shows, which are loosely based on the brothers' youth, will follow the fortunes of nine kids growing up in the inner city.

The youngest member of what may arguably be the funniest family in show business, Marlon teamed with brother Shawn for television's The Wayans Brothers in 1995. Marlon began to expand his responsibilities by taking on numerous roles, from writer to director and, of course, star.

In 1988, Keenan Iv...

Wayans Brothers Start Work on Comedy 'Little Man'

12/14/2005 1:53pm EST
Marlon Wayans
Production is underway in Vancouver, B.C., on Revolution Studios' "Little Man," a comedy directed by Keenen Ivory Wayans and starring Marlon Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Kerry Washington and Tracy Morgan. The film will be released by Columbia Pictures over the Memorial Day weekend on May 26, 2006.

In the hilarious comedy, Shawn Wayans plays a man so anxious to become a father that he mistakes a short-statured, baby-faced thief on the run, played by Marlon Wayans, for an abandoned toddler. He and his wife, played by Kerry Washington, take the "baby" into their home and care for him. The "baby...
