We’re used to seeing Paul Walker drive really fast — across Brazil, across Europe, across South Africa — but Hours has him engaged in a very different kind of race. Against Hurricane Katrina. Yup.
Walker stars as Nolan, a new dad who finds himself trapped in the ultimate worst-case scenario. His wife (Genesis Rodriguez) goes into labor weeks early, dying while giving birth to a tiny baby girl who can’t even breathe without the aid of machines.
Then, as if that weren’t terrible enough, the levees break, New Orleans is evacuated, and the power goes off. Nolan is left alone in the hospital to keep his daughter alive via a hand-cranked generator, which can only provide power for three minutes at a time. Watch the trailer after the jump.

We’ve heard lots about Kevin Smith‘s upcoming horror movie Tusk, but we haven’t heard where the beautiful girl fits in. We know Justin Long plays a podcaster who goes to interview an old man (Michael Parks) who then makes him dress up like a seal. There’s also a detective role with a big star set, though Smith is mum on exactly who plays him. Now the stunning Genesis Rodriguez, who appeared in The Last Stand, Casa de Mi Padre and Identity Thief, is in final negotiations for the film. Filming starts next month in North Carolina [Variety]

To hell with The Expendables, let’s move on to The Last Stand. South Korean director Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil, The Good, the Bad, the Weird) makes his English-language debut directing Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s return to marquee-heading status. The straightforward action film features Arnie as a disgraced cop currently holding a small-town Sheriff post, who has to prevent a powerful drug lord (Eduardo Noriega) from escaping across the US-Mexico border.
Peter Stormare is the bad guy’s chief enforcer, but that’s OK; Arnie has Genesis Rodriguez, Luis Guzman, Jaimie Alexander, and, uh, Johnny Knoxville on his side. Read More »
We all have our favorite “so bad they’re good” movies. They’re films with poorly written scripts and terrible performances, but huge entertainment value due to, or in spite of, near-total incompetence. Casa de mi Padre, Will Ferrell‘s Spanish-language comedy, was conceived and executed to be one of those films. It’s filled with totally self-aware mistakes in editing and production design. It has wooden performances and crappy dialogue. The idea was those gags, coupled with the fact that everyone is speaking Spanish, should be funny.
What Ferrell, director Matt Piedmont and writer Andrew Steele neglected to realize, though, is the reason “so bad they’re good” films usually gain that moniker is that the filmmakers crafted every moment with the best intentions… they just failed miserably. The Casa de mi Padre team is making a bad movie on purpose so those “best intentions” aren’t there. That, in turn, sucks the heart out of the film. As a result, it just lays on the screen lingering in mediocrity. And there are no “so mediocre they’re good” movies. Read More »
