That lack of interest in exploring how new ideas and outlooks can truly improve life is one of the main driving forces in director Rob Reiner’s new romantic comedy, ‘And So It Goes.’ While a forced and unexpected shift in the family dynamic of  [ Read More ]

Exclusive: Melanie Lynskey Talks Happy Christmas

Melanie Lynskey

Melanie Lynskey has a conjurer’s ability to mine the vulnerability of characters without sinking into sad-sack caricature. Whether as a troubled teenager in her stirring debut “Heavenly Creatures,” George Clooney’s younger sister in “Up in the Air,” Matt Damon’s wife in “The Informant!,” a fresh-out-of-rehab mother in “Win Win,” or a recent divorcee working her way through a rebound romance with a much younger man in the underrated “Hello I Must Be Going,” Lynskey always serves the story without ever blending into the scenery. Her latest film is “Happy Christmas,” from writer-director (and in this case co-star) Joe Swanberg. In it, the New Zealand-born actress gets to use her native  [ Read More ]

Hercules

The countdown is on for the theatrical release of “Hercules.” The film, starring Dwayne Johnson, features the popular wrestler-turned-actor as one of Greek mythology’s greatest heroes. Johnson has already earned the right to be called “badass”–he is the The Rock, after all. But you’ll see in this new television spot that Johnson takes the role of Hercules to the extreme. As Fox Sports’ Mike Botticello writes, he “takes badass to the next level.” Take a look at the clip for yourself and see what you think. “Hercules” is presented by Paramount Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures.

Among Ravens Movie

Title: Among Ravens Directors: Randy Redroad and Russell Friedenberg Starring: Amy Smart, Joshua Leonard, Will McCormack, Victoria Smurfit, Johnny Sequoyah, Christian Campbell, Natalie Imbruglia, Russell Friedenberg, Calum Grant, Castille Landon “I’m lost in all this bullshit – I don’t even know who I am anymore!” screams a character late in “Among Ravens,” and at no point in the 103-minute running time of this dysfunctional-family drama does an audience member feel more of a surge of empathetic identification and crystal-clear truth. Co-directed by Randy Redroad and Russell Friedenberg, this indie film is an achingly pretentious turd-burger, through and through. “Among Ravens” unfolds during an annual July 4 party hosted by Wendy (Amy Smart) and  [ Read More ]

jason momoa

Jason Momoa has made a name for himself on both the small screen and the big, in projects like “Stargate: Atlantis,” “Game of Thrones” and ”Conan the Barbarian” — mostly via his brooding physicality. “Road to Paloma,” though, finds the actor branching out, by degrees. Co-written with Robert Homer Mollohan, Momoa’s dusty, Southwestern-set directorial debut is a road movie/crime flick/wanderlust mash-up, centering on Wolf (Momoa), a Native American biker who finds himself living on the lam after avenging his mother’s rape and murder. For ShockYa, Brent Simon recently had a chance to speak to Momoa one-on-one, about how he enjoyed juggled duties behind and in front of the camera, filming a sex scene  [ Read More ]

I enjoy playing both.” “The_Maddest_Man”  [ Read More ]
