BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Critics agreed that there wasn't much to laugh at in Kevin Hart and Ice Cube's new comedy Ride Along, but if the past has taught us anything it's that packing 30 second TV spots with images of ex-rappers making angry faces and small children insulting popular stand-up comedians will put butts in the seats almost every time.
Thinkmodo's team built a remote-controlled stroller and demon baby. The former could steer around New York's crowded streets, scoring stares as it crashes through art vendor booths or knocks down restaurant's sandwich boards.
Movie studios are starting to get back into the swing of things after a few slow weeks. That means the winter movies season is kicking into gear. And while these movies don’t look particularly good by any means, at least they don’t involve Hercules. This week we’ve got ride alongs, shadow recruits, the devil and nut jobs.
It is a new year in cinema, at least for everyone who isn’t still coked up from Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. Unfortunately, January tends to be a dumping ground where studios release all of the films that weren’t good enough to push for Oscar consideration or big enough to release during the summer tentpole season.
How many of you out there ever watched Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby and thought to yourselves, “Say, this movie is pretty good and all, but what it really needs is worse performances and a first-person perspective on everything that’s happening..” If so, there’s a special place in hell with your name on it, and part of that hell has come to Earth in the form of Devil’s Due, the devilish debut feature from directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (V/H/S).
In his post-Friday Night Lights years, Zach Gilford hasn't had the hit we might have hoped from the promising actor. Both TV shows in which he starred were cancelled in or after their first seasons, and the action thriller The Last Stand, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and released last January, grossed just $12 million domestically at the box office, falling short of its $45 million budget, even when factoring in its worldwide gross to date.
