Wahlberg, Crowe Go Toe-to-Toe in 'Broken City'

broken city bar

Philadelphia Inquirer | Jan 16, 2013

PHILADELPHIA - It isn't hard, the first time Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe square off in "Broken City," to see that the two stars are enjoying themselves mightily. Wahlberg is a New York cop asked to resign in the wake of a controversial shooting, and Crowe is the mayor asking for his badge. They meet in the mayor's City Hall office - it's a tense, tough exchange, with Jeffrey Wright, another formidable actor, off to one side. But there's clearly an amiable vibe mixed in with the brinkmanship, too. "Russell didn't come on until week six of production," Wahlberg recalls. "And the first day that he walked onto the set, we were going to sh... more

'Zero Dark Thirty,' From a Navy SEAL's Perspective

 | Jan 14, 2013

The theater was quiet as a stealthy helicopter carrying sweaty Navy SEALs and the body of Osama bin Laden lifted into darkness over Pakistan. It was the climax of "Zero Dark Thirty," the Hollywood movie that painstakingly details the epic manhunt for the world's most-wanted terrorist, beginning with crackling 911 recordings from the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, and ending nearly three hours later with the 2011 mission to kill the man who orchestrated them. On screen, a few of the Virginia Beach-based SEALs who had just carried out the raid were hooting and hollering as they tossed a black bag holding bin Laden's body onto a gurne... more

Movie Review: A Haunted House

Mclatchy -Tribune News Service | Jan 15, 2013

Marlon Wayans wrings every last down-and-dirty giggle out of a single joke in "A Haunted House," his return to "Scary Movie" territory, in truth if not by contract. He's no longer involved in that series, so he limited himself to making fun not of every modern "scary" movie, but just the "Paranormal Activity" series. And for 85 rude and raunchy minutes, he does his best to drive a comical stake through the heart of horror's hottest franchise and the "found footage" genre. It's a "what if ghosts visited a randy black couple in the suburbs" take on "Paranormal," covering much of the same territory as the movies that inspired it - consultin... more

Tarantino Irked by Movie-Violence Queries

United Press International | Jan 14, 2013

Director Quentin Tarantino says he still sees no connection between film and real-life violence, but heatedly refused to tell a British TV journalist why. The filmmaker appeared on Britain's Channel Four News program to promote his latest blood-soaked saga, "Django Unchained," which opened in U.S. theaters shortly after Connecticut's Sandy Hook school massacre, in which a 20-year-old gunman killed 20 first-graders and six adults before fatally shooting himself. The critically acclaimed film, which is up for Hollywood's Best Picture Oscar, has become part of a wider dialogue about the impact screen violence has on people and whether filmm... more

Associated Press | Jan 14, 2013

LOS ANGELES - To bring the story of mobster Mickey Cohen's reign over post-war Los Angeles to life, the director of "Gangster Squad" employed Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling and more than 100 irreplaceable vintage American cars. There's the 1941 light blue Ford Deluxe Convertible that Gosling's character drives; the bulbous, bullet-nosed 1947 Ford sedans that served as police cars; the gorgeous black 1936 Oldsmobile convertible with a tan ragtop and the regal 1949 Packard Super 8 limousines that carried Cohen. These rare beauties are stars themselves, bringing an authenticity and aesthetic charm to the screen that no computer graphi... more
