January 3rd, 2014 12:15pm EST
Top Five Performances
Jason Coleman's Top Five Male & Female Performances

I am very happy for this particular acting "best of" list this year, mostly because notable films that didn’t make it to my Top Ten still had some memorable performances.  So even though movies like "American Hustle," "12 Years A Slave" and "Frances Ha" didn’t make the final film cut, the acting work within is lovingly highlighted here.  From oddballs to slaves, sassy ice cream truck workers to sexy hustlers here are my..."Best of 2013 - Top Five Male & Female Performances."

Ladies first this year!

'Kick-Ass 2': Not As Good As The Original

August 19th, 2013 11:15pm EDT
Kick-Ass 2
DIY real-world teen crime fighter Kick-Ass is back in Kick-Ass 2 and though fans of the first film may line up around the block to see this film, chances are they will be disappointed. Directed by newcomer Jeff Wadlow, the sequel brings in star power from Jim Carrey this time around as opposed to Nicolas Cage and doubles down on the violence with an unexpected streak of nastiness. Yes, Chloe Grace Moretz is still the scene stealer, Mindy Macready’s Hit-Girl, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson is Kick-Ass, but the film suffers from a case of sequelitis. A lot of familiar faces are back along with chea...

'Kick-Ass 2' Is No Match For 'Lee Daniels' The Butler' At The Weekend Box Office

August 19th, 2013 4:31pm EDT
Lee Daniels' The Butler
Lee Daniels' civil rights chronicle The Butler easily topped the weekend box office, blowing away superhero sequel Kick-Ass 2 and Ashton Kutcher's Steve Jobs biopic Jobs. The film pulled in $25 million, nearly twice that of the Kick-Ass sequel, which amassed a dismal $13.5 mil for a fourth-place finish behind last week's debuts We're the Millers and Elysium, which added $17.7 million and $13.6 million to their 10-day totals, respectively.

Disney's Planes rounded out the top five with $13.1 million in its second week of release.

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters finished in sixth with $8.3 mi...

Wadlow's 'Kick-Ass 2' Misses The Mark With Female Characters

Aaron Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz in Kick-Ass 2
No disrespect to Mark Waters and Tina Fey intended, but Jeff Wadlow’s “Kick-Ass 2” seems more like a crappy sequel to “Mean Girls,” than a follow up to Matthew Vaughn’s awesome comic book adaptation “Kick-Ass.” Instead of delivering the amusing uber violence, delightfully dark humor, and pointed parody that made Vaughn’s flick so much fun, Wadlow wallows in the stereotypical conniving of vapid teenage girls. This bizarre focus is neither insightful nor entertaining, because it never rises above inane moments.

Wadlow’s mess starts with a story that gives Mindy Macready (Chloe Grace Moretz) ...

Review: Second Helping Of 'Kick-Ass 2' Satisfies

August 15th, 2013 3:00pm EDT
Kick-Ass 2
Sequels are always tough sell, but follow-ups to cult flicks might as well have a bull’s eye attached.  In the case of the new "Kick-Ass 2" there is such a target but fortunately most of the characters, story and action hit the mark just right.  The result is a flick that stays right on par with its predecessor in terms of tone and entertainment value and gives fans of the original exactly what they crave – more of the same.

Young Dave Lizewski aka Kick-Ass is at a crossroads.  He’s been missing in the crime-fighting superhero scene, so he decides to get back in the game by enlisting the h...

Kick-Ass 2
The creator of the Kick-Ass motion picture franchise is convinced Jim Carrey did him a favor by refusing to take part in the second movie's press tour as his boycott bought the film $30 million of free publicity.

Carrey has been fighting for a tightening of the country's gun control laws in the aftermath of a school shooting in Connecticut, and he subsequently withdrew his support for Kick-Ass 2 over its depiction of violence.

However, Mark Millar, who wrote the Kick-Ass comic books and is a producer on the movies, now admits Carrey's headline-grabbing stunt actually did the film a big ...
