This Week In Movies: ‘Transcendence,’ ‘Fading Gigolo,’ ‘Heaven Is For Real’

04.15.2014 | By |

We begin the third week of April with a whopping 19 movie releases, which is a huge amount of films for one single week, not including all those arriving on VOD. This is probably one of the worst weeks in movies of the year as well. When Johnny Depp’s biggest competition this week is Marlon Wayans and some bears, that’s got to be a sad state of affairs. I mean, there is a penis documentary called ‘The Final Member’ that sounds like a joke, but it’s true. Despite that, perhaps the most beguiling film of the week is John Turturro’s ‘Fading Gigolo‘ which includes a rare appearance of Woody Allen as an actor in someone else’s film. That in itself is a treat. Peruse the rest of the line-up and see if anything catches your attention. Read More

Machete Kills (Movie Review)

10.11.2013 | By |

The “1-4-0″: “MACHETE don’t make good sequels.” He’s a great character who ran into a stale script full of retread jokes & too much dialogue. It’s not as funny anymore. Read More

October could very well be the single best month to watch movies of 2013. When you do a quick overview of the films being released this month, five of them are the frontrunners to win Best Picture at the Oscars 2014. Many of these movies possess all star casts, top flight directors and innovative and fresh stories. They are also coming fresh off of great reviews at Venice, Telluride, Toronto and New York Film Festivals. Not to be ignored are the commercial fare which includes Arnold and Sly together in a full feature film as opposed to cameos and one of the greatest assembled cast of Hispanics in film history in ‘Machete Kills‘ and ‘The Counselor‘. Do yourself a service, if you haven’t been to the movies all year, this is the one month you should step out and watch one.

Escape From Planet Earth (Movie Review)

02.13.2013 | By |

Escape From Planet Earth

Escape From Planet Earth’ is a great experience for both parents and children alike, because it delivers a strong message of team work and family unity all wrapped in an adorable, funny and cool package. We love our animated films and this one does not disappoint, a great extra is that there are three Latinos playing big roles here; more proof that this year is great for Latinos in Hollywood. The 3D is a definite plus, that really enhances the experience of Planet Babb and its inhabitants. The movie is a truly fun intergalactic trip that has just the right cast and ingredients to provide a short and sweet outing to the movies with the family.

In the very futuristic Planet Babb, superstar astronaut Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser) is admired for his heroic tasks; which he accomplishes thanks to his genius brother Gary (Rob Corddry). Scorch’s boss, Lena (Jessica Alba) sends him to the dangerous “Dark Planet” aka Planet Earth, where he faces general James Bing (Ricky Gervais) and he will need the help of his brother Gary, his nephew Kip (Jonathan Morgan Heit) and Kira (Sarah Jessica Parker) in order to come back home.

The look of the movie is just cool, with a futuristic Jetsons like environment and adorably ugly blue aliens, which all pops out in wonderful colorful images. The movie is not as funny as I expected it to be, but it does have a handful of laugh out loud moments aimed both at children and adults. My favorite part of it all is the main message it gives off, which is that we need teamwork in order to accomplish heroic tasks and that with our family’s trust and support we can do anything.

The cast is a great combination of well-known comedy actors even besides the main cast; we have Jane Lynch, Craig Robinson and a great mix of big name Latinos: Jessica Alba is Lena, the beautiful and intelligent chief at BASA, Sofia Vergara plays Gabby the hot and spicy anchor for BNN News, and finally George Lopez a three-eyed slug alien named Thurman; so keep an eye out for them. It is fantastic to see this kind of collaboration in a film that holds such a powerful message. Director Cal Brunker stroke gold providing a great product.

This is an out of this world adventure to enjoy with the family this Valentine’s day; it holds an original storyline that will keep you entertained. The film was so well crafted that it gives everyone in the audience something they are sure to like. Read our interview with some of the film’s cast here!

Sofia Vergara to work with Woody Allen?

Sofia Vergara to work with Woody Allen?

There’s a lot of buzz about ‘Fading Gigolo’, a movie written by John Turturro who will also be the director and star. It has been confirmed that Woody Allen will be in the movie as an actor, he will play the character that will convince Turturro to work as a gigolo, so he would technically be his pimp. The big deal is that we haven’t seen Allen acting in a movie he’s not directing since the year 2000, when he had two small appearances in ‘Picking Up the Pieces’ of Alfonso Arau and ‘Company Man’ from Douglas McGrath.

The premise of the film is that Turturro and Allen (their names will be Virgil and Bongo) are best friends who are short of money and decide to go into the gigolo business, they live in a Hasidic Jewish community that starts taking notice rapidly. One of the twists is that Turturro’s character ends up falling in love with a Jewish widow.

Some of the ladies in the film will be Sharon Stone who will co-star and also most likely ‘Modern Family’s very own Sofia Vergara will be in a supporting role.

Allen will appear in his upcoming film ‘Nero Fiddled’ which might show in Cannes in May and then Sony Classics will release it in June. Turturro’s film is said to start shooting in New York City in April, he is under pressure since his last couple of directing works haven’t fared too well.
