Cory Monteith’s final film “McCanick” opens in theaters to mostly negative reviews

McCanick – Cory Monteith’s final film, opened in theaters yesterday, to mostly negative reviews.  The film, directed by Josh C. Waller, stars David Morse (as title cop McCanick) Monteith (as Simon Weeks) and Ciarán Hinds, has been called, by outlets such as the New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and Variety as “dour,” “derivative,” “thin,” “clicheed” (including a subway door closing just in time) and “implausible.”

That’s too bad.  While I was no fan of his and when he died I thought he was given too much undeserved tribute for what accomplishments he did have, I wouldn’t have been averse to seeing his last movie role end up as part of a better final product.

According to IMDb:

When narcotics detective Eugene “Mack” McCanick discovers that Simon Weeks has been released from prison, he instigates a brutal manhunt, without permission from the Chief of Police. The frenzy of paranoia and violence that follows pushes Mack and his partner to the edge of the law. The closer Mack gets to his prey, the closer he gets to a secret from his past-one that only Weeks can expose.

It is anticipated that the film will enjoy limited theater release; even the most generous reviews suggest that the movie will only be sought out by Monteith fans eager to have one final memory of the late star.  It’s a pity that this final impression will apparently not be delivered by way of a better vehicle.

“Star Wars VII” to be set 30 years after “Return of the Jedi “

Star Wars fans, listen to this – the next installment in the “Star Wars” series will be set 30 years after the events of “Return of the Jedi.” This news was announced by Walt Disney Company’s CEO Bob Iger on Tuesday (March 18) in Portland, Oregon at the company’s annual shateholder’s meeting.

The movie will be filmed at the renowned Elstree Studios in Bristol , England. (Bear in mind, Darth Vader was played by Bristol native David Prowse.) “Episode VII” will be released on December 18, 2015 and will be directed by J. J. Abram, who also led the recent “Star Trek” series films.

In 2012 Disney purchased LucasFilm, the Star Wars production company, for $4.05 billion and said that it would release three more films in the popular franchise.

Aside from saying that R2D2 (played by R2D2) would return Iger said, “There will be some very familiar faces along with a trio of new young leads.” Of course, there’s a lot of speculation that the returning veterans would be Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia.

Rumors have been circulating for a year regarding the possible return of Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. The current feeling is leaning towards Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o and “Girls” actor Adam Driver.

Now would be the perfect time for the film’s creative leaders and casting team to find a way to find roles Lucy Liu. I think she’d be a perfect fit here. Of course, I always think that.

Emmy Rossum at the ‘Before I Disappear’ after-party

Emmy Rossum’s new movie Before I Disappear premiered on March 10, 2014 in Austin, Texas during the South By Southwest Film Festival.

Here’s the synopsis of the movie, according to IMDb.com:

At the lowest point of his life, Richie gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his eleven-year old niece, Sophia, for a few hours.

I can’t say Emmy’s one of my favorites, but then again, she is very attractive, and lately she’s really seemed to be blossoming.  At least that’s how it appears to me.  Here are a couple of pictures, from the film’s after-party after-party, held  at Supper Suite by STK with Blue Moon Beer, to help back up that opinion.

Academy Award winners’ biggest personal fortunes

The rankings may or may not surprise you, but according to figures released by Wealth-X Research, the top five wealthiest Oscar winners are jack Nicholson ($390 million) Tom Hanks ($350 million) Robert De Niro and Barbara Streisand ($310 million)

Sean Connery came in fifth with $250 million, then George Clooney with $220 million, Michael Douglas with $200 million, Anthony Hopkins with $160 million and Robin Williams with $150 million. Sandra Bullock, who won the award for Best Actress for “The Blind Side” on 2010 and is nominated for Best Actress again for “Gravity” tied with Robin Williams at $150 million and is the only woman besides Streisand in the top 10.

It’s no real surprise to see Jack Nicholson at the top of the list. He has two Best Actor awards, for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “As Good As It Gets” and. Best Supporting Actor award for “Terms of Endearment.” He is well known for his considerable art collection, which includes works by Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse, and he owns expensive real estate in Beverly Hills – not such a bad location, wouldn’t you say?

I was a little surprised to see Tom Hanks in this list but I suppose it makes sense. He is one of only five actors to win back-to-back Oscars; the others were Louise Rainer in 1936 for “The Great Ziegfeld” – the first Oscar for a role portraying a real-life person – and 1937 for “The Good Earth.” She’s one of only two German-born actresses to win the award, the other being Simone Signoret. Rainer is also one of only six actors to win the only two times they were nominated.

Spencer Tracy won on 1937 and 1938, for “Captains Courageous” and “Boys Town” (Quite a switch, eh? A Portuguese fisherman and a socially activist priest) perhaps fittingly, Katherine Hepburn, Tracy’s long-term, fabled romantic interest, won in 1967 and 1968, for “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” (Tracy’s last role; her tears, in the final scene – Tracy’s remarkable monologue – were real, as Tracy was dying) and “The Lion on Winter” a noteworthy battle between her and Peter O’Toole.

Jason Robards won the Best Supporting Actor two years in a row, for “All the President’s Men” in 1986 and “Julia” on 1977.

It may before to make the case that Barbra Streisand owes her wealth to her Oscar win, since she was a singer before “Funny Girl” in 1968, and Heaven knows how much money she has earned as a singer/entertainer in the years since. After all, she can still schedule 12 concerts almost anywhere, set ticket prices at $2,500.00 of more and have them all sell out in minutes, with boatloads of upper-echelon celebrities in the first few rows.

This bit of background is just the tip of the iceberg. There’s more than enough material here to fill a book, or at the very least, a significant magazine article, but I’ll end things here. Whether you like or love or can’t stand the people on this list, I think you have to admire the years of hard work, and the staying power, that helped establish and maintain their careers.

The Best Movies of 2013

This has been quite a year at the movies.  Vanity Fair even goes so far as to ask, “Is 2013 the best year for movies since 1939?”  I’d say that’s an emphatic “No!” when 2013′s offerings are stacked up against this short list of films released in 1939:

  • The Wizard of Oz
  • Gone with the Wind
  • Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
  • The Women
  • Love Affair  (the original An Affair to Remember)
  • Goodbyem Mr. Chips
  • Stagecoach
  • Wuthering heights
  • Gunga Din
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  • Of Mice and Men
  • Ninotchka
  • Beau Geste
  • Young Mr. Lincoln
  • The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex
  • Intermezzo: A Love Story
  • Jesse James
  • Drums Along the Mohawk

Be that as it may, 2013 gave us a very decent number of quality movies. This year’s Golden Globe nominations cite 12 Years A Slave, Captain Phillips, Gravity, Philomena and Rush as the the options for Best Drama.  It’s interesting to note that while Philomena and Rush are not mentioned on any of the lists below, Gravity, 12 Years a Slave and Captain Phillips are mentioned on most of them.

It’s also noteworthy that Star Trek Into Darkness appears on one of the lists below, but also appears on several lists for the worst movies of the year.  As I noted in my earlier blog post about the worst movies of the year, everybody is different, and opinions and preferences vary- and that’s as it should be.

With that in mind, take a look at the lists.  How many of these movies did you see? Are any of your favorites ranked unfairly low, or not selected at all?  Such lists make good subjects for discussion, or argument, if it comes to that.  Are any titles listed that you never even heard of?  I found several that were not at all familiar to me.  How about you?

The worst movies of 2013

This is the time of year when we try to evaluate the best and worst in entertainment for the year about to end.  Toward that end, I’ll start with listings of the worst movies of 2013.  One of my New Year’s resolutions is to see a lot of movies so I can write my own reviews.  Hopefully I’ll have the strength to sit through entire movies; if the threatened (or is that proposed?) Sharknado sequel in New York City does indeed come to pass, that could be a real chore.

Be that as it may, here are some examples of Worst Movies of the Year lists as presented at other Web sites.  It’s interesting that so many of the same movies appear on almost all of the lists.  That must mean that the critics don’t get things wrong all of the time.  (I suppose they’re wrong about as often as they get things right.  I’ve also seen well-reviewed movies – Full Metal Jacket is a case in point – that I didn’t like at all.  As an aside, I clearly remember a two-page ad spread in the New York Times Sunday Arts and Leisure section with review blurbs like, “Greatest war movie movie ever made” and “Better than Apocalypse Now, Deer Hunter and Coming Home.”  Throughout the movie, I kept thinking, “Am I watching the same movie the critics watched?”   When the final credits rolled, my friend stood up and said, “Well, that was remarkably mediocre.”  I had to agree.)

Ok, enough of the tangent – here are the lists:

I’m really surprised that The Lone Ranger and Sharknado weren’t on more lists.  And considering what I heard about Elysium, I’m surprised that it showed up on anybody’s Worst list at all.  Then again, years ago I liked Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure perhaps more than any critic’s review suggested that I would, so I know that different people have different tastes.

Top searches for 2013 on Google and Bing

So many of the top searches on Bing for TV shows and movies are for shows and movies that are not my cup of tea, that many just don’t merit any comment.  But the #10 search for TV show on Bng was for Honey Boo Boo?  I generally spend a lot of time defending the collective public intelligence, but information like this makes me not angry, but sad.  Talk about a show with no redeeming quality!  This is depressing.

Sarah Connor role in new “Terminator” remake goes to Emilia Clarke

The much-prized role of Sarah Connor, in Paramount Pictures remake of “Terminator,” has gone to the beautiful “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke,  Industry website Deadline.com reported the news Friday, noting out that Clarke will play the role originally made famous by Linda Hamilton in the now-classic 1984 film directed by James Cameron. Deadline reported that the competition for the Sarah Connor part came down to Clarke and Brie Larson.

Jason Clarke is reportedly in talks to play her son John Connor.  Taylor had worked with Clarke on HBO’s Game of Thrones, in which she plays Daenerys Targaryen – or, as her character is introduced in one episode, “Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, and Mother of Dragons.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger told USA Today last month has already expressed excitement about reprising his role as a cyborg.  “Doing another Terminator is going to be fantastic. I am really excited about that.”

Production on the remake, to be directed by Alan Taylor, is expected to begin in the spring, and is due out July 2015.

“It’s A Wonderful Life” sequel due in 2015 – good idea?

Nov. 19, 2013

“It’s a Wonderful Life,” the classic Frank Capra film from 1946 that has become a holiday season staple, will get a sequel almost 70 years after its initial release, Variety reports.

Although original stars Donna Reed (“Mary Bailey”), Jimmy Stewart (“George Bailey”), Lionel Barrymore (“Henry Potter”), Thomas Mitchell (“Uncle Billy”) and Henry Travers (“Clarence”) won’t be able to return for the sequel, Karolyn Grimes, who played George Bailey’s (Jimmy Stewart) daughter Zuzu played Zuzu, will appear as an angel.

“It’s a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story” is being planned for a 2015 release in theaters, and will have a direct connection to the original with the inclusion of Grimes.  She is set to play an angel who teaches Bailey’s grandson (also called George) the same lesson an angel taught his grandfather — what the world would have been like if he were never born. What’s the plot device this time? While Grandpa George was the town’s savior, and his little town went to seed without his contribution, grandson George is not a likable person and the world would have been better off without him.

“The storyline of the new film retains the spirit of the original — every life is important as long as you have friends,” says producer Bob Farnsworth, who co-wrote the screenplay with Martha Bolton.

Hmmm… some sequels, such as The Godfather II and Rocky II were very good, there are perhaps even more sequels that were not such good ideas.  (Caddyshack II comes to mind.)  Then there are some movies – some classics, some not necessarily so – that do not cry out for reprises.  The original was – and still is – charming, and warm, and had fine performances by the stars and the supporting players alike.  (Beulah Bondi is just one prime example.)  I don’t see how any amount of Hollywood “good intent” could possibly do justice to the original.  I hope the sequel turns out to be a good effort, but all I can muster up is a very healthy dose of skepticism over the whole effort.  It will be impossible not to judge it, or measure it. against the original

Disney announces release date for new “Star Wars” movie

Star Wars fans, rejoice.  The Walt Disney Company announced on November 8th that the next “Star Wars”  movie – “Star Wars: Episode VII” – will debut on December 18, 2015.  The movie will be directed by J. J. Abrams, probably best known for directing the most recent incarnations of “Star Trek.”

The movie will begin filming in the Spring of 2014.  Bob Iger, Disney chief executive, said, “This, obviously, is one of the most important movies we have in the next few years, and we’ve chosen a date we believe will allow the creative team the time to make a great film.”  The previous six Star Wars films were all released in May, so this pre-Christmas release date is quite a departure for the franchise.

According to IMDb.com, the following cast members are all merely “rumored” at this point:

  • Harrison Ford – Han Solo
  • Mark Hamilll – Luke Skywalker
  • Carrie Fisher – Leia Solo
  • Billy Dee Williams – Lando Calrissian
  • Anthony Daniels – C-3PO

I’m going to cross my fingers and hope this ends up being a good one.

Jennifer Lawrence Cuts Beautiful Hair

I know this has been posted all over the Internet already but I feel I must voice my opinion.  I’ve heard everything from she looks amazing to she looks horrible.  Umm. Guys.  This is JENNIFER LAWRENCE!! Who gives a shit how she has her hair? Are you guys insane? She’s a wonder of beauty. PERIOD! How many of us would love to have a woman as gorgeous as she is as ours? Grow Up.  Be men, and women, and accept her for who she is.  Not the way she wears her hair.

Ashley Greene Goes Pink For “The Apparition” Premiere


I like Ashley Greene. In Pictures. I’ve yet to like her in any of her movies, though. For her new flick, “The Apparition”, Ashley plays some girl in some horror movie who has to do a few scenes in her underwear. Cuz no horror movie would complete without the blatant and unnecessary bits of female semi-nudity, right? Hey, even if the movie stinks (which I’m very sure it will), I can just freeze frame the good parts of her ass and ignore the rest of this movie.

In an unusually uncommon move, Ashley’s premiere for her newest scare flick was held last night at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, a full 24 hours before the flick’s nationwide release. But, then again, it’s probably common that the movie will still suck. Bring on that next Twilight movie!

“The Amazing Spider-Man” Spoiler References Guide


The new Spider-Man reboot flick is here and it pretty much just tells a less interesting version of the story done by Tobey Maguire back in 2002. That being said, the latest Spidey flick incorporates more comic book elements and doesn’t try to rush itself like the first one (although it may be one of it’s weaker points, story-wise).

Wanna know what most of the differences are between the 2002 and 2012 flick? Click below for (most) of the details but remember, SPOILERS AHEAD if you didn’t catch the reboot yet! (Just note that it’s been years since I’ve seen the first Tobey Spidey flick, so my memory is a bit rusty and creaky, so bear with me if I make a few errors to the Tobey flick.)

Kate Beckinsale Bares Some Hot Abs for Women’s Health July/August 2012

Anyway, the hot Brit appears in the newest issue of Women’s Health to promote her newest reboot flick, “Total Recall” (where she takes on the femme fatale role originally played by Sharon Stone).

Shit, and I thought she would be the alien with the three boobs.
