Rumor Mill: Anne Hathaway Circling Barbie Role

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - We've already come to the conclusion that no toy line is safe from the cinematic world of big budget franchise movies. From Transformers to G.I. Joe, no plastic character is safe. Word came out last year that Barbie was being transcribed to a live action film starring stand up comic and film star, Amy Schumer. Soon after the announcement, Schumer left the project and the role was once again put on the market. Now, it appears that the live action Barbie is getting nearer to finding its star. In  strange turn of events, the movie may get a huge star to fill the rubbery shoes of the blonde character. Tonight, many sources are reporting that Oscar winning lead actress Anne Hathaway is in talks to take over as Barbie. Never one to stick to one type of role, this could be an

Videos: Dwayne Johnson Partners With Apple For The Short FIlm The Rock x Siri Dominate The Day

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - It seems as if Dwayne Johnson is practically everywhere and now he spoofs that with the short film The Rock x Siri Dominate the Day. Equal parts short film and commercial, Johnson takes advantage of all that Siri can do in order to complete his list of ten life goals. He had the following to say about why he did this project:"I partnered with Apple to make the biggest, coolest, sexiest, craziest, dopest, most over the top, funnest (is that even a word?) movie ever made. And I have the greatest co-star of all time, Siri. I make movies for the world to enjoy and we also made this one to motivate you to get out there and get the job done. I want you to watch it, have fun with it and then go live it."View my Flipboard Magazine.

Videos: 15 BIGGEST Fails Nintendo Wants You To Forget

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - This is a new video from GamingBolt that lists the 15 biggest fails Nintendo wants you to forget. Nintendo has been a fixture in the gaming world since the company decided to venture into electronics in the mid-1970s. Their success reached new heights with the NES during the 80s and they have been around since. Being around so long through so many changes means that there were some mistakes along the way, some very big mistakes. Check out the synopsis and video below to find out what they are."To slightly alter a quote from the recently released Breath of the Wild, the history of Nintendo is also the history of the video game industry. They were here in the dark days, they were here when the console market boomed, they were here when the handheld market was pioneered, they were here for t

Cinematic Releases: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Luc Besson has never been a conformist. He does not live by any certain formula or studio structure. The man is a rule breaker. And he's a cinematic artist that just broke his vibrant palette as he reaches the peak of his career. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is a pinnacle of sorts. After decades behind the camera, he's finally brought his unruly galactic dream to the movies. It's absolute beauty transcribed to outlandish realms beyond our imagination. Much like Star Wars did when it was first released in 1977, Valerian changes the guidelines by which this genre exists. Amalgamating the adventurous fashion statements of his previous works with amazing costume design and glorious looking visual effects, this is easily the boldest genre piece of 2017. Besson's direct

Editorial - The TARDIS Materializes Above The Glass Ceiling: Jodie Whittaker As The 13th Doctor

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - It has finally happened: after 54 years, 36 seasons, and 13 Doctors, a woman will at last step behind the TARDIS console not as a companion, but as The Doctor herself. It was announced earlier today that the 13th Doctor, who will take over from Peter Capaldi during the upcoming Christmas special, will be Broadchurch and Attack the Block co-star Jodie Whittaker. The announcement was greeted with celebrations by large parts (I would like to think the majority) of the Doctor Who fandom, who have been quite vocally wanting a female Doctor for years. But it was also predictably greeted with anger from a certain other, very vocal minority of the fandom; the same type of people who tend to get angry whenever a woman or a person of color is cast in an established role that has traditionally belon

Videos: Top 10 Best Andy Serkis Performances

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - This is a new video from WatchMojo that lists the top 10 best Andy Serkis performances. War for the Planet of the Apes was released in theaters this weekend and some viewers may not know that actor Andy Serkis appeared in the film, portraying the main character Caesar. In fact, many people are unlikely to recognize him because he's taken on so many motion-capture roles. Even though he's probably best known for playing Caesar, Gollum from The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and King Kong, Serkis has had his fair share of great performances in both a traditional format and motion-capture. Check out the video below. View my Flipboard Magazine.

New Horror Releases: Bonejangles (2017) - Reviewed

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Regrettably, a slick premise alone cannot carry a film above mediocrity. Brett Dejager's blood drenched horror comedy Bonejangles is a basement level romp that fails to balance either genre and worse, it fails to deliver the goods. Featuring an above average cast, hilarious kill sequences, and barely adequate makeup effects, the film never takes off and languishes in its ridiculous presentation for its quick runtime. Legendary, unstoppable killer Bonejangles is captured by the police and is being transported to an asylum for safekeeping. The police pass through the haunted town of Argento, where one night a year (of course it’s this night) the dead walk the Earth, setting up the ultimate showdown between Evil and Evil. Except the showdown is a letdown. Keith Melcher’s script is juve

Second Sight: The Musical Mayhem of "Baby Driver" 

Posted By themoviesleuth on Movies - Edgar Wright's latest offering is a musically infused crime story steeped in golden age Hollywood homages for an MP3 generation.  It’s always refreshing to view a picture that has been intimately crafted by a film lover.  Wright's meticulous design is encased in a symphony of violence and screeching tires, a metropolitan skeleton through which music is the heart’s blood.  From the powerhouse introductory car chase to the classical ending, Wright's Atlanta based urban fairy tale Baby Driver is one of the most exciting theatrical experiences of 2017.Baby is a good natured getaway driver for groups of professional thieves, who (due to a hearing disorder) choreographs his vehicular escapes to a plethora of musical anthems.  After falling for a local waitress, Baby risks ev
