Rating: PG-13 Stars: Channing Tatum, Jamie Foxx, Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Woods, Jason Clarke, Richard Jenkins, Joey King Writer: James Vanderbilt Director: Roland Emmerich Distributor: Columbia Pictures Release Date: June 27, 2013 It’s easy to like WHITE HOUSE DOWN, even as we acknowledge that it seems awfully unlikely. Granted, the U.S. government can be dysfunctional, but it doesn’t usually have the kinds of lapses that would lead to a cadre of mixed mercenaries and ideologues invading1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, armed with actual weapons rather than words. Part of the film deals with uncovering the question of who these people are and what […]Read On »

Warner Bros. Pictures held the World Premiere recently for MAGIC MIKE at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live in Los Angeles, as the closing night gala of the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival. MAGIC MIKE makes me think of Chippendale’s, where male strippers dressed in costume and performed for women of all ages, as the patrons screamed and stuffed money into the pants of the strippers…and no men were allowed in! Seen walking the carpet were the stars of the film, which included: Channing Tatum, Adam Rodriguez, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, […]Read On »

Movie Review: MAGIC MIKE

MAGIC MIKE poster | ©2012 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Matt Bomer, Riley Keogh, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Gabriel Iglesias Writer: Reid Carolin Director: Steven Soderbergh Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: June 29, 2012 It should be noted that in a thoroughly unscientific poll taken by this reviewer, virtually every heterosexual woman queried wanted to see MAGIC MIKE. Most of them did not care what the plot was like, or whether there would even be a plot. This may demonstrate that there’s a relatively untapped audience out there eager for male eye candy, or it […]Read On »

Screen Gems and Spyglass Entertainment held The World Premiere of THE VOW on February 6th at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. THE VOW is a true story based on Kim and Krickitt Carpenter and a real tearjerker I hear, so take the tissue with you. Hollywood was lined with fans screaming as the stars arrived. And they were not disappointed as some of the stars went over to the fans to sign autographs. Seen walking the carpet were the stars of the film, which included: Channing Tatum, Rachel McAdams, Scott Speedman, Jessica McNamee, Wendy Crewson, Dillon Casey, Jeananne Goossen, […]Read On »

Movie Review: HAYWIRE

HAYWIRE movie poster | ©2012 Relativity

Rating: R Stars: Gina Carano, Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton Writer: Lem Dobbs Director: Steven Soderbergh Distributor: Relativity Media Release Date: January 20, 2012 There are few if any movies where CIA agents and their allies are perfectly comfortable with all of their work colleagues. It’s therefore no big surprise to the audience when government “private contract” black ops specialist Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) gets burned by someone she trusted. It’s not surprising either, what with HAYWIRE being an action movie, that the more Mallory understands she’s being messed with, the […]Read On »
