10 Movie Spies That Were Really, Really Bad At Their Jobs
International men of mystery like James Bond may be pretty good at what they do. But for every suave, badass, and successful super spy we know and love in movies, there are those who, how shall we say this gently, really suck at their jobs.

Why Tom Hardy Will Probably Never Make Another Romantic Comedy
Tom Hardy is best known for his serious work, be it turning up the drama in features like Warrior and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or just turning into a full-blown monster, as seen in movies like Bronson and The Dark Knight Rises. That said, two years ago he decided to branch out with a bit of lighter fare and tried doing a romantic comedy. What's unfortunate is that the experience has sworn him off the genre for the foreseeable future.

The Worst Movies Of 2012 Review Themselves
There was plenty to cheer in 2012, but there was also plenty to jeer. Remember the return of Jason Biggs for American Reunion? Or how about the double dose of Tyler Perry between Madea's Witness Protection and the dud thriller Alex Cross? The vid below lets them speak for themselves with succinct and brutal reviews.

This Means War To Feature Alternate Endings In May Blu-Ray Release
This Means War drops on May 22 and will be available in a Blu-Ray combo pack or as a DVD. The best news about this is the professed alternate endings that McG thought about pursuing in the theatrical release will show up in the Blu-Ray special features section. What would have been terrible as a marketing tool to get people to see the flick twice should work great as a couple of extras on the disc

Holiday Weekend Box Office: Safe House Locks Down Presidents Day
As four day weekend holidays go, this Presidents Day weekend hasn't been very kind to new releases. Safe House, which traded places with last weekend's number one The Vow, held on to the top spot through Monday, and The Vow held on to second place. But Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, which had debuted at third place for Friday through Sunday, got bumped to fourth by the more popular Journey 2.

The Vow Easily Beating Ghost Rider And This Means War At The Box Office
There are some splashy new movies out in theaters this weekend, and yet neither of them are looking capable of tackling the monster hits from last weekend. Early box office numbers from Friday indicate that The Vow and Safe House are looking strong enough to top the box office this weekend

This Rotten Week: Predicting Ghost Rider And This Means War Reviews
After finally kicking my Super Bowl hangover sometime around Wednesday afternoon I dusted the cobwebs off and got back to the task hand: thinking incessantly about movies and their critical Tomatometer score.

This Means War Backs Off On Valentine's Day Release, Pushes To Friday
Fox seemed to have a pretty good strategy in place for their upcoming action comedy This Means War, planning a Valentine's Day release to capitalize on date night with a movie that appeals to women with romance and to guys with big explosions and chases. But apparently even Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon and Tom Hardy combined can't match the almighty power of Nicholas Sparks

This Means War Could Have Had Clue-Style Alternate Endings
Did you know that when the movie Clue was released in theaters, only one of the three possible endings was featured in a given screening? Only ever having seen the film on TV and video (VHS, not DVD), I always assumed the “That’s how it could have happened” set-up, which delivers three different endings, one of which is declared “what really happened,” was the way the ending was always designed to play out.

This Means War Release Date Moved To Valentines Day
Twentieth Century Fox is declaring War on Valentine’s Day. Or they’re releasing War on it, at any rate. The upcoming action comedy This Means War was originally slated to hit theaters on Presidents Day Weekend, however it looks like they’ve decided to nudge the date up a few days to coincide for that big date-night.

International Trailer For This Means War Boasts More Violence, Even More Sex
The closer we get to War, the more intrigued I’m becoming in its execution. I mean, the plotline meshes Alias with Three’s Company, but I’m past that. Now I’m genuinely curious to see how McG rebounds from Terminator: Salvation to handle two-dimensional characters with actual emotions while also juggling the butt-kicking action he attempted in back-to-back Charlie’s Angels movies.

Tom Hardy, Chris Pine Face Off In McG's This Means War Poster
Hardy and Pine have the potential to be the next tier of major action stars. Witherspoon’s beautiful enough to convince me that spies would jump off of building to earn her heart. And when you’re supporting cast includes David Koechner, Chelsea Handler, Angela Bassett, and Abigail Spencer, that’s enough to win me over.

This Means War Trailer: Tom Hardy And Chris Pine Get Silly Over Reese Witherspoon
To be honest, this looks a little sillier than I was hoping for, even keeping in mind that it's coming from McG. The gambit by which the spies find out they're dating the same girl-- looking at pictures of the girl they're dating while at work? really?-- is truly contrived, and Witherspoon seems to spend the entire movie flitting around and acting exceptionally dumb
