The Croods Blu-ray Review

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

Have you ever wondered what happened when the first humans appeared on Earth and the last of the cavemen were still living? Recently we have discovered that there was in fact crossover between the two groups and they may have even traded with each other as the last of what we consider the ‘caveman’ was […]

The Frozen Ground Blu-ray Review

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

When a connoisseur of all things movies hears the “starting lineup” for a film, the first synapse fired in the brain is usually devoted to running a cross reference check to see if the stars have ever worked together on any previous noteworthy projects.  Oh sure, you can covertly whip out your handy, dandy smartphone, […]

Exclusive: Scott Walker talks Frozen Ground and working with Vanessa Hudgens and Nicolas Cage

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

In THE FROZEN GROUND, the new film starring Nicolas Cage, Vanessa Hudgens, and John Cusack, an Alaskan Trooper seeks a believed serial killer in Alaska. Based on a true story, THE FROZEN GROUND brings to light the sensitive nature of investigations, particularly when dealing with a victim who barely escaped. Today we spoke with writer/director […]

Peggy Sue Got Married Blu-ray Review

Monday, August 5th, 2013

A high school reunion can either be a joyful night or one of the most terrifying experiences of your life, depending on how you’ve aged and how wide you’ve gotten. But Peggy Sue, despite a recent separation from her husband/high school sweetheart, Charlie, has maintained her looks and wit, and decides to go with her […]

The Croods Movie Review

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

Eep, Grug, Ugga, Thunk.  No, I’m not babbling incoherently (although I’m known to do that from time to time), I’m actually repeating the names of the prehistoric family from Dreamworks most recent animated adventure, THE CROODS.  A fun-loving, light-hearted family film, THE CROODS combines cartoony wackiness, gorgeous visuals, universal humor and positive life lessons that […]

Chloe Moretz, Aaron Johnson and Jim Carrey star in the Kick Ass 2 red band trailer

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

2013 appears to be another year of sequels, one of them being KICK ASS 2. Today a red band trailer has been released and it although the movie looks fun, it just makes me want to see a film following the adventures of Hit Girl (played by Chloe Moretz) instead of Kick Ass (Aaron Johnson) […]

Aaron Johnson and Jim Carrey appear in the first photo from Kick-Ass 2

Monday, January 21st, 2013

News has been quite on the upcoming sequel KICK-ASS 2 (formerly called KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALLS), but today we’re getting a first official look at two of the heroes in the film Kick-Ass (being reprised by Aaron Johnson) and Colonel Stars and Stripes (played by Jim Carrey). In the sequel KICK-ASS 2, a […]

Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds go on an adventure in the new The Croods trailer

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Dreamworks’ big animated film coming out next year is called THE CROODS, which follows a prehistoric family that sets out on an adventure into an unknown land after hanging out in their cave too scared to leave. I wish I could say that this film looks cute and interesting, but it looks neither of those […]

Sylvester Stallone confirms that Nicolas Cage will be in The Expendables 3 and more films will follow

Monday, November 5th, 2012

It looks like THE EXPENDABLES franchise will go on, with not only THE EXPENDABLES 3 currently in the works, but more films will probably come after that. Sylvester Stallone apparently hopped on Facebook and wrote out a little paragraph about the fate of his franchise, and though it gives a bit of information about the […]

Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz’s sequel Kick-Ass 2 reveals official synopsis

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

One of the films we’ve been getting various set photos from and hearing snippets about is the upcoming sequel KICK-ASS 2 (formerly titled KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALLS, which they thankfully dropped). Universal Pictures has recently released the official synopsis which goes into a little more detail about the film, which is nice since […]

Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds and Nicolas Cage lend their voices for The Croods trailer

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

There are so many kids movies coming out these days, it’s hard to keep track of everything that’s about to hit theaters. That’s probably why I have never heard of the film THE CROODS until I came upon this trailer. THE CROODS are the very first prehistoric family that has always followed the rule “Never […]

Jim Carrey is camouflaged in new set photos from Kick-Ass 2

Monday, September 24th, 2012

More set photo have been released from the upcoming sequel KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALLS and this time we’re getting a look at Jim Carrey who plays Colonel Star. I think I might like Colonel Star, look at his adorable four-legged sidekick. Since I’m not familiar with the KICK-ASS comics, it’s hard for me […]

Aaron Johnson, Donald Faison and Clark Duke in new set photos from Kick-Ass 2

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Yesterday a couple of set photos from the upcoming comic book film KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALLS was released, which showed Chloe Moretz as the character Hit Girl. Today we’re getting a few new set photos, this time featuring Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass), Donald Faison (Dr. Gravity) and Clark Duke (who is playing Battle-Guy). These […]

Chloe Moretz suits up in new set photos from Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Walls

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Looks like filming for the sequel KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALLS is well underway in Toronto as today we’re getting a look at one of the best characters in the franchise, Hit Girl, played by Chloe Moretz. Today we’re getting a look at Chloe Moretz in partial and full on costume. KICK-ASS 2 is […]

Jim Carrey will join Aaron Johnson and Chloe Moretz in Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Walls

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

A couple of weeks ago it was rumored that Jim Carrey would be joining the sequel KICK-ASS 2: BALLS TO THE WALLS and quite frankly that sounded like a long shot. However, it’s been reported that Jim Carrey has officially joined that cast and will play Colonel Stars who is another member of the group […]

Vanessa Hudgens gives John Cusack a dance in the new The Frozen Ground trailer

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

A new trailer for the gritty drama THE FROZEN GROUND has been released and though it doesn’t look appealing at all, I’m surprised I haven’t heard much about it since Vanessa Hudgens plays a stripper and you get a bit of a taste of that in the trailer. This must be another one of those […]

Kick-Ass 2 adds Robert Emms and Morris Chestnut to the cast

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

KICK-ASS 2 is working on getting a cast set so shooting can start this fall and today the film welcomes Robert Emms and Morris Chestnut. Robert Emms (WAR HORSE and MIRROR MIRROR) is set to take on the role of Insect Man, who is a policeman that decides to become a superhero. Insect Man is […]

Nicolas Cage attached to star alongside Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables 3

Monday, August 13th, 2012

Can we say overconfident much? THE EXPENDABLES 2 hasn’t even hit theaters yet (it opens this weekend on August 17th), but producer Avi Lerner is apparently convinced that the film will rake in the big bucks, so why not start looking for stars for the next film? According to Lerner, he’s already got Nicolas Cage […]

Donald Faison may join Aaron Johnson in Kick-Ass 2

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

After hearing about the sequel for quite some time, it seems that KICK-ASS 2 is indeed moving forward in a timely manner and it looks like Donald Faison (TV’s ‘Scrubs’ and SKYLINE) could be on board playing Dr. Gravity. Dr. Gravity is a good guy who teams up with Kick-Ass and Hit Girl to fight […]

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D Blu-ray Review

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

In 2006, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor directed the Jason Statham action film CRANK.  It wasn’t a good film by any means, but they directed it in a way that was spastic and fast, which worked because that style fit well within the scope of the film.  A few flops later, Neveldine and Taylor were […]

Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance Blu-ray Review

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

While I only remember negative press, 2007′s first GHOST RIDER did manage to pull in a little cash that actually meant success in the eyes of a studio.  Therefore, we can scratch off everyone’s first question, “Why make GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE?”  But the fact still remains that this movie has zero likability, enjoyability […]

The Vow, Safe House and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance battle for the weekend box office

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Another weekend in 2012, another tight box office race.  Continuing with the strong showing last weekend, THE VOW looks like the movie to beat this weekend after taking in nearly $30 million, which is incredible for a movie in its second week this early in the year.  There were a few new movies this weekend […]

Elizabeth Banks and Paul Reubens join Steve Carell and Nicolas Cage in Frank or Francis

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Elizabeth Banks and Paul Reubens have signed on to the already impressive cast of Charlie Kauffman’s musical comedy FRANK OR FRANCIS.  Nicolas Cage, Steve Carell, Jack Black, Catherine Keener and Kevin Kline are already on board the ambitious film that sees an intellectual film director (Carell) battle an obnoxious online blogger (Black).  Banks will play […]

Vanessa Hudgens joins John Cusack and Nicolas Cage in The Frozen Ground

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant After the huge success of High School Musical, I figured stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens would end up being bigger stars.  Efron seems to be doing okay, but Hudgens seems to be struggling, with her only notable film being the disastrous SUCKER PUNCH.  But that might change as the young […]

Honeymoon In Vegas (Blu-ray)

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

I remembered having a soft spot for HONEYMOON IN VEGAS. It was entertaining the last time I saw it, which was about 15 years ago. I wanted to see if I got the same satisfaction out of it as an adult. This was a time before Sarah Jessica Parker grew tiresome and Nicolas Cage was […]

Taylor Lautner is one of several actors wanted for The Expendables 2

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce There are still slots to be filled for characters in THE EXPENDABLES 2. Donnie Yen (IP MAN) was the latest to be rumored as a possible member of the action squad. Director Simon West has put together a list of actors he’d really like to see in the sequel. So which […]

Nicolas Cage and John Cusack to reunite for thriller In Frozen Ground

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce When the names, John Cusack and Nicolas Cage come up, my mind goes to CON AIR. As it would anyone else’s. Now that was an action movie. One of my favorites, no lie. It’s cool to see that Cusack and Cage will be re-teaming for IN FROZEN GROUND. The film is […]

Nicolas Cage and Idris Elba in a first look at Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Even though production seems to be in full swing, we haven’t heard a lot of information about the upcoming superhero sequel GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE. Directed by Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, we will revisit Johnny Blaze, aka Ghost Rider (Nicolas Cage) as he makes his way across Eastern Europe […]

Steve Carell, Nicolas Cage and Jack Black will team up for Charlie Kaufman’s Frank or Francis

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Looks like we have quite a potential trio on our hands as Steve Carell, Nicolas Cage and Jack Black are currently all attached to the upcoming Charlie Kaufman film FRANK OR FRANCIS. This is a film that has been brewing in the bowels of Tinseltown for some time and is described […]

Leaving Las Vegas (Blu-ray)

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Somehow I’ve gone fifteen years never having seen LEAVING LAS VEGAS. It’s one of those films that everyone says is so spectacular, but that’s it. You also hear about how that was one of the last amazing performances that Nicolas Cage ever gave. The man even won an Oscar for the role. So I figure […]

Season of the Witch (Blu-ray)

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

SEASON OF THE WITCH isn’t a very good movie. As a matter of fact, the film is poorly made. From the pacing to the uneven story and characters, it would not be inaccurate to call it a train wreck. I am usually someone who enjoys a good train wreck, especially a medieval story with sword […]

Drive Angry (Blu-ray)

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

It’s important to remember that not every movie can be CITIZEN KANE.  The world needs mindless, over-the-top action that’s silly and mind-numbing.  The trick to making movies like that work is that the filmmakers have to actually know they’re making that kind of film and not end up making it by accident.  Luckily for the […]

Nicolas Cage and Season of the Witch coming to Blu-ray

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced the supernatural thriller SEASON OF THE WITCH, starring Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman, Ulrich Thomsen, Claire Foy and Christopher Lee, will be released on Blu-ray June 28, 2011.

John Travolta and Nicolas Cage may get back together for a couple of films

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant My dreams from 1998 are finally coming true: John Travolta and Nicolas Cage may reunite for an action film. I didn’t think it would ever happen, of course I never thought Nicolas Cage and John Travolta would take roles in such crap like WILD HOGS or KNOWING and become household jokes, […]

Nicolas Cage and Drive Angry 3D coming to Blu-ray

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Summit Entertainment has announced that the cheesefest DRIVE ANGRY, starring Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard, Billy Burke and William Fichtner, will be released in a 2D and 3D version on May 31, 2011. This will be the first title Summit Entertainment will release in 3D. The film follows a vengeful Nicolas Cage, […]

Moonstruck (Blu-Ray)

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

The scene: a modest little Italian restaurant somewhere in Brooklyn.  A nervous, sweating man orders champagne for himself and his female guest, slipping the waiter a twenty to make sure things go smoothly.  He makes excruciatingly awkward small talk and then abruptly suggests marriage, in the tone of voice one would use to suggest miniature […]

Malin Akerman joins Nicolas Cage in Medallion

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Nicolas Cage is spiraling into the realm of B-movies and he is bringing Malin Akerman (WATCHMEN) with him.

Hall Pass takes the box office while Drive Angry 3D flops

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant HALL PASS will finish the weekend with under $15 million, but will still manage to take the top spot at the box office.  That will make it the lowest grossing box office winner in almost two years.  True, it’s Oscar weekend, which is traditionally slow, but studios shouldn’t kick back and […]

Season of the Witch

Monday, January 10th, 2011

After a long and brutal career of killing for God (which ends in the spilling of innocent blood), two weary knights, Behmen and Felson defect and head home only to find that the lands have been overrun by The Black Plague. When the two men are recognized by guards, they’re given an ultimatum; die or […]

It looks like True Grit will finally beat Little Fockers at the box office

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant They’ve been fighting for the past few weekends, but it looks like TRUE GRIT finally managed to overtake LITTLE FOCKERS at the box office.  I’m personally surprised that the film has managed to have this much staying power, but I’m glad it has proven to be a stronger film than Fockers.  […]

Win The Sorcerer’s Apprentice on Blu-ray!

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant is proud to offer you a chance to win THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE on Blu-ray. A fun, modern-day adventure follows Dave (JAY BARUCHEL), just an average college student, or so it appears, until the sorcerer Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) recruits him as his reluctant protégé and gives him a crash course in the […]

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Blu-ray)

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

I have to blame PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.  If that film hadn’t been so successful and enjoyable, then producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney would never have moved forward with taking basic ideas of a specific scene, theme park ride or video game and making it into a feature film.  But alas, Pirates was great and […]

Photos of Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman in Season of the Witch

Monday, November 29th, 2010

In this upcoming film he plays Behman, a knight-like figure who is hired to hunt down a young witch that could possibly be the source of the Black Plague.  […]
