Forgotten Friday Flick - The Action, Comedy 'Shoot 'Em Up'

4/8/2016 12:15pm EDT
Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Shoot 'Em Up'
With the bravado of "Batman v Superman" seriously lacking in the ass-kicking department, it felt time to infuse a little over-the-top violence to remind film fans what good action is supposed to look like – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! This week we’re grabbing every weapon we have and following a bitter angry marksman on a journey of gun-toting glee. Plus with hot call girls, sick and twisted hitmen and beautiful babies caught in the middle it’s more than time to…"Shoot ‘Em Up!"

Moody drifter Mr. Smith is your basic man with no name who also happens to be an expert marksman. ...

With 'Spectre' Bond Deserved Better

11/5/2015 12:00pm EST
I’ve read a lot of comments recently begging folks in the cinematic opinions biz not to compare the new Daniel Craig 007 outing "Spectre" to the previously perfect "Skyfall." I guess there’s an overall feeling of unfair in comparing any follow-up film to an original one that feels flawless. So I take on the request above and I’ll try to keep the brilliance of "Skyfall" – which incidentally was on my Top Ten films for that year – out of the "Spectre" equation. "Spectre" as a stand alone film has all the troupes one has come to expect from the franchise as a whole - a handful of stunning s...

Does Bond Go Rogue In Spectre?

James Bond Is Back In Action In The New 'Spectre' Trailer
Daniel Craig returns as secret agent 007 in Spectre, the 24th film in the James Bond series, and the trailer has just arrived.

Posted online on Wednesday, the new teaser begins with Bond chasing down an adversary in Mexico City during the country's Day of the Dead festivities. Shortly after eliminating his target, he's in the office of M (Ralph Fiennes) who asks what he was doing in Mexico City.

Bond appears to go it alone without the help of the British secret service agency and ultimately learns all of his past work has one thing in common: the Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence...

Director Sam Mendes gathered the new cast of the upcoming 24th James Bond flick together on Wednesday evening at London's Pinewood Studios to announce the title of the new film, which is set to bring back 007's old nemesis in "Spectre."

Spectre, of course, is the sinister organization that featured in six of the franchise's early films and was headed by the supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Christoph Waltz, who joins the cast as the film's villain, is rumored to be playing Blofeld, a rumor punctuated by Mendes not naming his character while introducing him at the press conference.

Celebrities That Turn 50 In 2014

Sandra Bullock
Welcome to day two of 2014! Looking back in time 50 years ago, the year was 1964. Major events of that year included President Johnson being re-elected by a landslide over Barry Goldwater. The investigation of John F. Kennedy's assassination by the Warren Commission concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the killing of the President. In the civil rights movement, three workers were murdered in Mississippi during the "Freedom Summer," and Anchorage, Alaska was hit by a massive earthquake.

In pop culture, Beatlemania had officially hit North America and on February 9 of that year, s...

8/26/2010 12:28pm EDT
Jessica Alba
Jessica Alba showed up to the "Machete" premiere in Los Angeles wearing a Charlie Brown-inspired black and gold zig zag dress and gladiator-like heels. She's a lot hotter than the Peanuts character.

'The Sorcerer’s Apprentice' Intertwines Science And Magic

7/16/2010 10:27am EDT
Customarily science and magic are in direct opposition to each other. Science seeks logical answers to questions through proven experimentation, whereas magic relies on faith to turn impossible feats into possible ones.

What makes “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” fascinating is that it rejects convention, intertwining the concepts of science and magic. This film implies that great scientific knowledge leads to refined skills as a conjurer, which really makes you wonder, if Einstein was a sorcerer would his grasp of physics make him powerful?

As the lore states in “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,...

Celebrities We'd Like To See In A Sex Tape

7/17/2009 9:38am EDT
Celebrity Sex Tapes We
As a celebrity, the release of a sex tape is essentially a roll of the dice. You can either win big or lose your house on the gamble. A popular sex tape can turn B and C listers into A listers just like Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee. A great sex tape can also turn a little bit of fame into a lot of fame (see Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian).

However, if the sex tape is bad or if the celebrity in the sex tape comes across as odd and/or creepy (ahem, Dustin Diamond), they can make everyone wish that they had never heard of that celebrity and never enjoyed any of their prior work. It c...
