Another movie about the possibility of humans accessing 100% of their brains. I’m pretty sure that even if I could go full 100, I would really only use it to search Google quicker and maybe cheat codes for video games. I don’t really need the whole Matrix experience but maybe I would, who knows. Either way this new movie, Lucy, is basically an action and female version of Limitless. A girl is stuffed with drugs that can make you superhuman. They accidentally leak into her system and she goes on a revenge rampage to deal with the guys who did it while using 100% of her brain compared to us 10% losers. At first I thought it looked really original and cool but then I realized I saw a good version already with Bradley Cooper and Bobby DeNiro. I’m sure I’ll (il)legally see this at some point but I’m not rushing anywhere to see Scar-Jo as the lead actress.

One of the greatest actors in either comedy or drama. He rarely if ever turns down a role because he says you learn something new each time and I am eternally grateful for that mindset. Because of that we have Deer Hunter and we have Wedding Crashers. We have The King of New York and we have Batman 2. Has he made some shitty movies? Sure he has. But the constant exposure and different roles has introduced his incredible talent to literally generations of viewers and I hope he never stops. So Hap-py Birth-a-day Mr Walken, I hope you aren’t annoyed at every single person ever trying to imitate your voice!

Slash Film- There are rumors, there are big rumors, and then there are stories like this. A new report says Disney, which recently acquired the rights to release more Indiana Jones films, is looking to go the James Bond route with the character. That is, the company could recast him for years to come. Who would don the fedora after Harrison Ford? Rumor has it Bradley Cooper is at the top of the list. According to Latino Review, Cooper is just one name on a longer list of actors who may, or in most cases may not play Indiana Jones moving ahead. They also say Frank Darabont, who wrote an infinitely better script for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull than the one produced, has already pitched an idea for a new movie. Are these claims true? Latino Review is often pretty spot on with these rumors, even when they make their way through the laundry and come out years later.

Frank Darabont directing and Bradley Cooper starring is a Indiana Jones I can get behind. I recently watched Skyfall and I love that James Bond stays around through constant reboots and new actors. Is Sean Connery the best? Of course. But that doesn’t take away from Pierce, or Daniel, or even Timmy Dalton. I think Indy is a character that can easily be done again with little backlash from the fans whereas Fletch and the Naked Gun movies should never be touched (Fuck you Jason Sedakis and Ed Helms). Outside of Bradley Cooper though I’m sure there is the same list of young, good looking actors that are “available” for every role these days on the list: Ryan Reynolds, Channing Tatum, Jake Gyllenhaal, and anyone from those Vampire deals. Darabont is great choice to direct though, hope they stick it out with him.

Listen up you political fucks, get over it for a few minutes. I don’t care if you like him, hate him, or voted for him yet don’t want to admit it now because people say he’s fucking up. Newsflash, no matter who the President would be this country needs a lot of fixing, one guy can’t do it. But you know what Obama can do? Be funny in a great Funny Or Die video with Zach Galifianakis.

Like 90% of the people I know I couldn’t tell you what this movie is about or who the characters even are. I know Chris Pratt isn’t fat anymore, Bautista is still fucking huge and Zoe Saldana is green and of course smoking hot. There is also a raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and a tree thing (voiced by Vin Diesel). Truthfully that’s all I want to be aware of because from what the trailer showed me, I will fucking love this movie. Stupid humor, lots of action, hot girls all based from a comic book. So unlike Batman or Superman type characters I won’t see this with any previous knowledge or bias and I hope I’m not disappointed. Here is the full trailer, only shitty part is it comes out 6 months from now

NME- Tom Hardy has joined the cast of BBC drama Peaky Blinders, it has been revealed. Hardy, who has starred in Hollywood blockbusters including The Dark Knight Rises and Inception, has agreed to feature in the second season of the show and will now reunite with director and writer Steven Knight, who Hardy worked with on last years’ thriller Locke. According to Empire, Hardy will play a charismatic leader who clashes with the show’s protagonist Tommy Shelby, who is played by Cillian Murphy. Peaky Blinders, which is set in Birmingham in 1919 and tells the story of a gang known for sewing razor blades into their caps as they try to rule crime in the city, won critical acclaim when it was aired in 2013 and shooting on the second season is set to begin later this year. It was revealed in October last year that Hardy, who is set to star in the reboot of Mad Max in 2015, has also agreed to take on the role of Elton John in the forthcoming biopic of the piano-playing icon. Titled Rocketman, the film is billed as “a larger-than-life movie musical spectacle that tells the story of a child prodigy turned music legend”. Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall has penned the script.

Tom Hardy is probably my favorite actor right now followed by Bradley Cooper and a handful of others. He can play a rich fancy guy, a dirt bag thug, gay, funny, straight, Bane, Elton John, Al Capone, whatever you need he will play. And it helps he is really good looking and I think those go for both Hardy and Cooper. Bradley would be a harder sell as a tough guy but I think he could pull it off. And if you haven’t seen Peaky Blinders and you are a fan of gangster stuff, you’re surely missing out. The show is very well acted, well done, great stuff. To add in an actor of Tom Hardy’s caliber and star power will bring a SHIT TON to that show and I can’t wait. Also think Rocketman will be good but the Al Capone movie trilogy will be fucking amazing. They need to speed that process up asap.

I don’t really play video games or watch a ton of TV, I catch shit on Netflix but I don’t ever sit down for live TV outside of sports. But I do watch a ton of movies, so I guess I will start doing movie reviews for people like us. Kinda did that with Wolf of Wall Street, but I will really start now.
ah

American Hustle is about Christian Bale who is a fat ugly con man imagesVODLFM11and how he links up with Bradley Cooper (playing an FBI agent who catches Bale) and how they team up to bust out some politicians. Pretty good premise, also a semi true story from the 70’s. Bale as I’m sure you can guess is fucking perfect in any role he plays. From The Machinist, to the Fighter, to making a deep voice as Batman. He and Daniel Day Lewis are the best in the world right now. He plays a fat guy with a terrible comb over (take notes Ken) who is charming and a good talker, hence he is a con man. But he meets up with Amy Adams who is for sure one of the sneakiest hot chicks out there. imagesRVRFFHTLYou look at her and it’s plain Jane all the way. Nothing too great. Tits are eh, ass is not there I don’t think, body is ok. But she just has that likeability that makes you want to be nice to her for a night so you can raw dog. Throughout the whole movie she is in these open in the middle shirts, cleavage all over the place it was great. But they team up to run scams like loansharks without the actual loans. In walks Bradley Cooper with the best jew-fro perm in movie history.images1IYKOLQD He busts them out because he’s an FBI agent. Now Cooper is one of my favorite guys too (he was great in Silver Linings Playbook) and he is once again great in this. He’s over eager, funny, and kind of pathetic at the same time, which is hard to pull off for a good looking charismatic guy. But he teams up with Bale, seeing how good he is at the con, to bust the mayor of New Jersey and then in turn other politicians they meet along the way. Louis CK plays his boss, totally a bad casting move. All you see is Louis not the character and it’s distracting and just unneeded. Anyone could’ve played his FBI boss. Jeremy Renner plays the mayor with a hairstyle that like Louis’ casting is just unnecessary and distracting. It’s a ridiculous pompadour. jrStupid. But two brilliant pieces to the movie were parts played by Robert DeNiro and Jennifer Lawrence. DeNiro plays a mobster (go figure) but he does it like the old days. He’s not trying too hard and it works fucking perfectly. He needs to stick to this type of stuff to keep his rep up. And Jennifer Lawrence continues to dominate movies as the best actress out there. imagesCL7WNKHDSmoking hot. Unlike Amy Adams you know you want to suck JLaw’s asshole the second you see her. But I won’t give away the ending, it’s good but I could see it being predictable to some people (the ones who claimed no ending ever shocked them. To those pricks..You did NOT know who Keyser Soze was so fuck off). Overall it was probably a 7.5. Good acting, good story, good ending. Just a few distractions with casting and that fucking hair on Renner. Got the .5 for Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams kissing. On the lips no toungue
