‘Jett’ Review: Carla Gugino Steals Hearts and Owns the Screen

‘Jett’ Review: Carla Gugino Steals Hearts and Owns the Screen
Carla Gugino’s first job as a TV series regular was playing Michael J. Fox’s reporter girlfriend Ashley on Spin City in 1996. It was a big break that instead broke bad: The show’s creators quickly realized Ashley was a distraction from the funnier workplace scenes, and Gugino was let go after a dozen episodes. So thorough was her erasure from the series that an Ashley subplot was removed from a rerun that aired not long after Gugino’s last episode, replaced by previously-cut footage featuring other characters who were still on the show.

‘Cannibals and Carpet Fitters’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Darren Sean Enright, Richard Lee O’Donnell, Zara Phythian, Christopher Whitlow, Dominic Holmes, Jessica-Jane Stafford, Alex Zane, Phill Martin, Mingus Johnston, Lee Charles, Tony Nyland, Laura Jean Marsh, Darren Maffucci, Grant Steven, Jenny Stokes | Written by Richard Lee O’Donnell | Directed by James Bushe

Horror comedy is very difficult to get right. Managing to cause laughs and scares is always a tricky balance, especially over the length of a feature film. The Evil Dead 2 is often held up as the best example of the genre, but I would probably update this to Tucker and Dale vs. Evil which managed to be sweet, funny and feature some very memorable and violent scenes. Cannibals and Carpet Fitters is, much like Snakes on a Plane, a title that makes me smile. It earns an awful lot of good will through title alone. But beyond the amusing Cockney vs. Zombies-style title there must

Top 5 Celebrity Video Game Voiceovers

Video games are no longer the geeky pastimes of teenage boys in their bedrooms. With each passing year games are getting bigger and better bringing with them some unbelievable talent. While many mainstream actors tend to stick to the traditional film and TV, a few of them have taken the plunge into the video game world. Here are five of our favourite celebrity video game voiceovers.

5. Kristen Bell – Assassin’s Creed

Kristen Bell has become known in recent years for her portrayal as Princess Anna in Frozen. In case you’re not aware, Frozen is pretty popular so it’s no real surprise that Bell reprised her role in the Disney Infinity game series as well as the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts 3. But shortly after her breakthrough title role in Veronica Mars came to end, Bell took on the role of Lucy Stillman in Assassin’s Creed. The seemingly unimportant Abstergo

‘Deadpool 2’ is Now the Highest-Grossing ‘X-Men’ Movie
I don’t envy the Hollywood big shots tasked with reading the internet’s tea leaves to try to deduce if a movie will become a pop culture phenomenon. Sometimes loud online fan support can translate to a box office dud (remember how hyped everyone seemed to be about Snakes on a Plane?). But sometimes they land […]

Ghostbusters 3 Working Title May Hint At The Film’s Plot

Jason Reitman’s just-announced Ghostbusters 3 looks like it’s going to be fast-tracked through production as quick as humanly possible. Not only did the film’s reveal come with a teaser trailer, but we now already know what name the movie’s being shot under. The information comes from trade publication Production Weekly, which lists the project as “Ghostbusters 3 (w/t Rust City).”

Now, we all know that working titles tend not to have a connection to anything in the finished product. For example, Jurassic World was shot under the name ‘Ebb Tide,’ The Dark Knight was shot under the name ‘Rory’s Last Kiss’ and Star Trek was titled ‘Corporate Headquarters.’ However, there are instances where the working title has eventually been used for the finished product, in the case of Cloverfield, High School Musical and, famously, Snakes on a Plane.

Samuel L. Jackson Approves Calling Trump a ‘Motherf*cker,’ Just Don’t Call Him President

Samuel L. Jackson Approves Calling Trump a ‘Motherf*cker,’ Just Don’t Call Him President
If there is one thing Samuel L. Jackson knows about, it’s the proper use of the word “motherf*cker.” Jackson has turned the word into high art over the course of his decades-long Hollywood career, from “Pulp Fiction” to “Snakes on a Plane,” so he’s perhaps the only person who could properly weigh in on Rashida Tlaib’s controversial use of the word in regards to Donald Trump. Tlaib, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Michigan’s 13th district, earned backlash last week after calling Trump a “motherf*cker” at an event in Washington D.C.

In a post sent to Tlaib on Twitter, Jackson wrote, “I just wanna wholeheartedly endorse your use of and clarity of purpose when declaring your motherfucking goal last week. Calling that Muthafukkah a Motherfucker is not an issue, calling that Muthaffuqah President Is!!!” Jackson attached the phrase “motherf

‘The Hurricane Heist’ Blu-ray Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Toby Kebbell, Maggie Grace, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Melissa Bolona, Christian Contreras, James Cutler, Ben Cross, Ed Birch | Written by Scott Windhauser, Jeff Dixon | Directed by Rob Cohen

A heist takes place during a hurricane… It’s difficult to imagine a sillier plot outside of Snakes on a Plane, but, like that film, The Hurricane Heist takes its ridiculous premise and runs with it, delivering about as much fun as it’s possible to have with a film this stupid.

Every action hero needs a tragic backstory, so here we get two for the price of one, as young brothers Will and Breeze witness their father getting crushed by a water tower during Hurricane Andrew in 1992. And as if that wasn’t traumatic enough, the CGI clouds morph into a shrieking skull face, just to ram the point home.

Film Review: ‘Tea With the Dames’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Tea With the Dames’
There are some films that deliver with such literal-minded generosity on the promise of their titles that all you can do in response is applaud, and in that respect — if no other — “Tea With the Dames” is the new “Snakes on a Plane.” Roger Michell’s documentary offers dames and tea and pretty much nothing else. Happily, that turns out to be enough for a wholly delightful talkathon, shot on location in the rambling country pile that Plowright once shared with Laurence Olivier. For the tea in question is not so much the beverage as a warm, steady stream of gossip, spilled lavishly, as four of the pre-eminent British actors of their generation reflect mirthfully on their careers, their lives and lovers, their ongoing insecurities and some 60 years of friendship between them.

Devoid of technical fuss or ambition, “Tea With the Dames” is hardly vital cinema. In the U.K.

The Meg Review

When you’re tangling with the Megalodon, just opting for “a bigger boat” isn’t going to cut it. No, it takes a steely-faced action hero like Jason Statham — his Fast and Furious co-star Dwayne Johnson must have been busy this week — to take on the prehistoric giant shark that gives The Meg its all-too-casual title. Shouldn’t these two at least get to know each other a little better before Statham levies nicknames on his arch-nemesis?

The actor plays a deep-sea rescue diver here who’s pulled out of retirement to save his ex-wife (Jessica McNamee) and her team from the aforementioned sea monster. You see, there’s a tragedy in his past that crippled his ability to do his job and saddles him with a personal connection to the beast he’s recruited to confront. Needless to say, lives are lost, and it all winds up with Statham

The Meg review – Jason Statham versus prehistoric megashark

Nonsense science and monster-movie cliches pile up in the latest marauding-shark thriller – but it’s lots of fun, too

Last week, the Academy invited its Twitter followers to boil down the plot of their favourite film to five words. Here’s a plot that needs no boiling: Jason Statham versus prehistoric megashark. That formula might merely have generated a boneheaded Jaws reboat [sic], or a flimsy disappointment along the lines of 2006’s Snakes on a Plane, where movie wound up secondary to pitch. The face-off we actually get is on an acceptable par with 1999’s enjoyably lively Deep Blue Sea, where LL Cool J had his parrot chomped by an angry Frankenshark: its wittily handled pulp will do you just fine on a Friday or Saturday night, given the right expectations.

Once more, nonsense science (“Are you saying we’ve opened up a superhighway for giant sharks?”) lashes together a string of monster-movie cliches,

Jason Statham And ‘The Meg’ Director Detail Disappointments In The Shark Film Just Before It Hits Theaters

Without seeing the film yet myself, it’s hard for me to say what I expect from “The Meg.” On the one hand, the trailers all point towards a fun, end-of-summer romp that features Jason Statham (always entertaining) fighting a massive shark (should be entertaining) to the death. As a fan of ridiculous action films, this sounds like a good time at the theater. However, there’s this nagging feeling in the back of my head that we could be looking at the next “Snakes on a Plane” (*shudder*).
