Anna Nicole may be gone, but one last testament to her acting career remains. It’s called Illegal Aliens, and reports say Smith will shine in her comedic role as a sexy, Earth-protecting alien. The movie comes to DVD tomorrow and features a funny, upbeat Smith who’s unafraid to spoof herself for the sake of comedy. Smith and her late son Daniel were producer and associate producer for the flick, which turned out to be Smith’s last. …

He may be an Academy Award winner, but he’s made some movie mistakes in the past. Nicolas Cage has been everything from a comic book hero, a crazy EMT, an angel, even a Jimmy Stewart wanna-be…so, why not make him psychic? Reviews of Cage’s Next are in – and the film is falling pretty flat with critics. Julianne Moore becomes an FBI agent again for this film, while Jessica Biel plays the sexy love interest. The …

Box Office Breakdown: Bring On The Fuzz

This weekend’s Top Ten saw the introduction of several new movies:  Fracture, Vacancy and In the Land of Women.  But no star-wattage combination (Gosling/Hopkins, Wilson/Beckinsale) could bring down the LeBeouf. But that’s not to say Indy’s newest sidekick shouldn’t be worried.  Hot Fuzz, the latest movie from the makers of Shaun of the Dead, had an impressive debut—bringing in an average of $7000 per theater.  With Grindhouse already off the map, here’s how the rest …

The Hot Buzz on Hot Fuzz

If fans are expecting Hot Fuzz to be the fun romp that was Shaun of the Dead, they’re in for a disappointment. The reviews are in, and Hot Fuzz is more like a warm drizzle. The UK creators who brought fans the lighthearted zombie flick have enjoyed big success across the pond with their latest comedy, but many American-born fans will find jokes zooming right over their heads. The movie is about two cops (always a …

Vacancy Leaves Fans Empty

A dark, somewhat eerie night. A strange, somewhat scary locale. A couple with a broken-down car. Either this is a classic B-movie horror setup, or we’re about to be treated to a fabulous cult classic. Many, many movies have used the same premise – a handful have even created memorable screen drama with this same scene, but it’s even more ambitious for horror filmmakers to use a plot that’s been brilliantly, and totally, done before. If …

DISTURBIA [di-stur’-bee-uh), noun: A rare state that occurs when three previous Oscar winners (e.g. Berry, Swank, Tarantino) struggle to remain in the Top Ten.  This anomaly often coincides with the meteoric rise of a 20-year-old star (e.g. Lebeouf). 1.

Shia LaBeouf No Mickey Mouse Actor

The Disney channel child star Shia LaBeouf is hotter than ever, and he’s proved it with his big box office hit, Disturbia. The Rear Window-esque movie was number one at the box office with $23 million this weekend, finally unseating Will Ferrell’s Blades of Glory (which, at number 2, got $14 million). LaBeouf had little time for celebrating the news, as he was busy this weekend serving as host on SNL. During the monologue, Shia made …

Moviegoers Take Note: Grindhouse May Soon Be Split

If you haven’t gone to see Grindhouse yet, now might be the best time.  The three hour and twelve minute long double feature, directed cooperatively by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, finished a distant fourth last weekend at $11.6 million.  The reason?  Despite an abundance of positive reviews, many analysts say the film is just too long to attract a mass audience; Harvey Weinstein, head of Weinstein Co. and one of the film’s executive producers, concurs.  …

Box Office Breakdown:  Metal Blades Take Down Machine Gun Leg

Not even the combined directing muscle of Team Tarantino/Rodriguez could take away the gold medal from Team Ferrell/Heder.  Despite the publicity onslaught, Grindhouse didn’t even score a silver.  Heck, it didn’t even make the medal platform.  But I guess it could have been worse.  Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank not only placed fifth—but she too was beat out by a family friendly Ice Cube.  I think it’s now safe to say that the plagues have …
