LOS ANGELES (AP) — Much like its goofy titular character, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" has defied expectations. The slapstick comedy, which cost a mere $26 million to produce, is speeding toward the $100 million mark following back-to-back weekends atop the box office.
Could this surprise success signal the arrival of Kevin James in Hollywood's stable of bankable leading comedic actors?
For nine seasons, James served as the lovable master… Continue

Liam Neeson is officially a full-fledged action star. The Irish-born actor has often played heroes, whether it was Oskar Schindler in Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Schindler’s List, the wise Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace or determined sex researcher Alfred Kinsey in 2005’s biopic Kinsey, Neeson has always had a knack for playing the earnest-but-flawed good guy.

The question is who would be cast in a movie based on the new president Barack Obama. Who could easily play the role of the current leader of the United States and who could play his family and other people involved in his life. So here we go.
The role of Barack Obama should be played by...
The obvious choice. I think that if you give someone like Will Smith the role, it would not be that good. I… Continue

This is my umpteenth attempt at trying to launch a weekly blog and hopefully, this will be the one. These are my Spill rating predictions for the movies being released on Friday:
NEW IN TOWN
Stars Renee Zellweger & Harry Connick Jr. Rating: PG
Judging by trailers and TV spots, this looks like what happened to Bride Wars. It also looks like another reason why romantic comedies should not be rated… Continue

I didn’t necessarily like Gran Torino and as a result have received my fair share of email telling me how stupid I am as a result. However, that doesn’t mean I will fail to recognize the fact people seem to have an interest in what may end up being Clint Eastwood’s final screen performance as it is sure to become the actor’s biggest box-office success as an actor by the middle-end of next week.
Steve Mason brings us the early Friday… Continue

All right, folks. The first thing to know before going into this review is that I really liked Hitman, which is very similar to the movie I'm reviewing. I strongly disagree with most people that it's a bad movie although it does have its' shitty moments. Second thing is that not a lot of video game movies are good at all (Resident Evil). So anyway, this is my review of 'Max Payne' starring Mark Wahlberg and the lovely Mila Kunis & Olga Kurylenko.…

Despite the critical drubbings that they took, films like Garfield and Alvin and the Chipmunks, which took classic childhood cartoon characters and inserted CGI versions of them into the real world, still made big bank. Desperately wanting to make too much of a good thing, Warner Brothers is now developing a Tom and Jerry film, which, unlike the disastrous 1992 Tom and Jerry film, will have a CGI version of the cat and mouse doing battle in… Continue
