Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan is going back to the big screen. David Henrie is set to play the former U.S. President in Reagan, an indie biopic told from the view of a KGB agent keeping tabs on him. Or perhaps that should be future U.S. President, because the film will focus on Reagan’s pre-Oval Office days. More on the Ronald Reagan biopic after the jump.  Read More »

American Sniper header

Editor’s Note: This review originally ran on November 12. We’re bumping it up now that American Sniper is in wide release.

Director Clint Eastwood has great aspirations for American Sniper. First and foremost, he hopes to make a movie paying tribute to the most deadly sniper in the history of the United States. That’s the late Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper. He also hopes to show Kyle not as only a heroic solider, but a complex man confident in his actions and concerned about of their results. The film paints a grim picture of post-traumatic stress disorder and what it does to our veterans, especially in regards to their families. Finally, there’s also a drive to keep things exciting, so there are many gun battles in the deserts of Iraq.

Yes, American Sniper is an incredibly ambitious film with many moving parts. All of those parts work in certain instances, but only on rare occasions do they all come together at once. The disconnection makes the film fall just short of those great aspirations.

American Sniper had its World Premiere on Veterans Day at AFI Fest presented by Audi and you can read the rest of our review below. Read More »

Jennifer Lawrence in The Dive

James Cameron has talked about making The Dive for many years. The film would follow the story of free diving couple Francisco “Pipin” Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre, and the record-setting attempt that claimed Mestre’s life. Back in 2012 Cameron fully backed away from The Dive as director, but he remains on as a producer and driving force for the film.

Now Francis Lawrence, director of three of the four Hunger Games movies, has signed on to direct his Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence in The DiveRead More »

The Dirt movie

A film based on The Dirt — the tell-all story of hair metal/rock band Motley Crue as dictated by the band members — has been in development for years. We’ve heard of a few big talent attachments, but no development effort has ever amounted to much. At this point there’s a script by Rich Wilkes and Tom Kapinos, about which I’ve heard quite a few people say very positive things, and the attachment of Jackass director Jeff Tremaine. And that’s how things have been, since Tremaine’s involvement was announced in late 2013.

Now there’s some forward movement, as Focus Features will back The Dirt movie. Read More »
