The plot is creative, enough for Gosling to play around with:

The story centers on a single mother of two and her teenage son who stumble upon a road leading to an underwater town.

Scorsese Sued?

Scorsese looks to be in hot water over a Shusaku Endo adaptation of his book Silence. Scorsese has been apparently planning to make a feature film adaptation of this book for over 20 years. the production company, Cecchi Gory who funded the film is suing Mr. Scorsese for multiple production delays. Martin Scorsese does not seem to be the type of guy that would ever get sued so this is very interesting to me. What are your thoughts? Do you still want Scorsese to adapt this book? Leave a comment below

Chuck Norris Done With The Expendables

 It appears the man who won an arm wrestling match with Jesus, beat a brick wall in a game of tennis, and shot down a german figther pilot by holding up his finger and saying bang, is leaving the nostalgic action franchise, The Expendables. Norris told Access Hollywood, Nope. Just Number 2. This is it for me... Oh, Yeah. This is very special. Just to be able to do the film with guys I've known for many, many years." Even though Norris was awesome in the sequel, I am not terribly upset. Im not a huge fan of the man's films but I will miss the Norris jokes in The Expendables 3. How do you feel about Norris leaving?

New "Lincoln" Poster

          Steven Spielburg plus Daniel Day-Lewis adds up to amazement. This new poster was just released, and wow he does look a lot like Abe, that is remarkable! Hopefully, we get a trailer for this soon. The film opens in theatres November 16th. If you don't see this, you don't appreciate the art of film.

"Despicable Me" Minion Spin-off!

        It seemed like everyone loved the animated film, "Despicable Me" when it came out in theatres in 2010.   With all of the heart-warming, loveable characters, a favorite for most was the minions as you see up above. Despicable Me 2 was announced just shortly after the first one was reaching success. Now that the 2nd is coming out in 2013, Chris Meledandri wanted to surprise us with more, and publicized very recently that their will be a spin-off about just the minions, and they will be getting to the theatres December 19th, 2014, and that will stay the same unless there is a scheduling conflict. You can see them even sooner July 3rd of next year along with Gru and others for "Despicable Me 2"! Stay in the mix for updates!

"Lawless" Red Band Trailer

      Here is the all new Red Band trailer for "Lawless" that starts in theatres this friday! Tom Hardy, Shia Lebeouf, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, the list goes on! The movie is really starting to look like one of the best of the year, see it for yourself! <<

A possible end of the road for "The Dark Tower"

      The director and producer of what could be a film, Ron Howard has tried and tried again with Universal and Warner Bros and he's not getting any luck whatsoever! Reports say that one of the biggest concerns was the budget, and having problems with finding an actor to take the lead role. BUT WAIT! There is light at the end of the tunnel for "The Dark Tower", because MRC is in deep interest with this project, and that could resolve all funding issues that were present. For those who don't know this is a book series as well, and a very good one, so if the movie could interest you, the books would be a great place to start to pick up on storyline and everything else. The future could be bright for "The Dark Tower".

Todd Phillips takes on "The Gambler" Remake

Todd Phillips, director of "The Hangover" films, and a bunch of other comedies is now looking for a more serious type of crime drama to direct after he finishes his "The Hangover: Part III". A remake of "The Gambler" is somewhere in the air, and Todd Phillips is looking to direct it, after Martin Scorcese left, as well as Leonardo DiCaprio. In the aftermath, it most likely will end up in Todd Phillips' hands. We will see where he takes it, visit flickreport for upcoming news!

"The Impossible" Trailer

      This film is based off a true story, which I think can add an emotional and heartwarming factor. Naomi Watts is always pretty good, and Ewan McGregor looks like he did a great job. The kids' acting is phenomenal! If you want a story that is based off a real family's survival, and is down-to-earth, I'd watch out for this one, and see it in theatres December 21st.

Dreamworks and 20th Team Up!

       They will bring you movies like "Spongebob Squarepants" (Eh.), "Dora the Explorer" (Oh man...), "The Legend of Korra" (Hmm..), and an animated JJ Abbrams film (Wooh!). Dreamworks better bring us good work!

Death of Director Tony Scott

        Tony Scott, british director of many films from "Top Gun" in 1986, with Tom Cruise, who credits success from that movie, all the way to "Unstoppable" in 2010, with Denzel Washington. Tony Scott had committed suicide last night (August 19th, 2012) by jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California. He was 68. He will surely be missed, and all of my thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones, friends, family, his brother who is also a famous director and movie maker Ridley, and his wife and kids. I may have not been the biggest fan of Scott's work, but the man had a distinct style and his 1995 film, Crimson Tide is a amazingly well directed film. He has had many successes over the years, many to be proud of, and he will always be remembered. May he rest in peace. (June 21, 1944-August 19, 2012)

"Homefront" News!

       Sylvester Stallone is on a run! He has written a script and will be producing for a movie titled "Homefront", which is based on a novel by author Chuck Logan, and it centers around a retired DEA agent (Statham) who moves his family to a  quiet town to get away from the louder surroundings, and the town happens to be seething and filled with drugs and violence, run by a kingpin named Gator (Franco). Sly is behind the scenes on this
one, but you still have an allstar cast to make up for it! As you can see Jason Statham and Franco will be taking over the leads, while supporting role could possibly be taken up by Winona Ryder, as for other supports, there has been none others announced at this point. They will start shooting down in New Orleans in late September, so folks down there, try to spot them in action!  For news, talks, clips and trailers for "Homefront" stay in the loop with

"The Expendables 2" Review


       The Expendables 2 is one of my most anticipated movies of the summer. Most people are thinking "most anticipated film of the summer?", well I was super excited when the first expendables came out because I grew up watching Rambo, Rocky, and a lot of the Sylvester Stallone movies, such as Cliffhanger and stuff. Sly was my action hero growing up. I also grew up watching a lot of Schwarzenegger films such as Terminator 1 and 2. So, all of these great, cheesy, stupid action movies like Commando, and then the good ones like Die Hard, and even some of the crappy Van Damme movies. Seeing all of my favorite 80's action heroes was very nastalgic for me and I think that's why I like the first film a lot more than other people.
When they were making the Expendables 2, it had pretty much everyone that I wanted to see more of in the first I was pretty close to crapping myself :).

      Expendables 2 is just a really fun time at the movie theatre and it's a great way to end the summer movie season. It's just a lot of fun, and knows exactly what it is. I think it might be just as good, or better than the first. Do you really need to know the plot of this film? No, it doesn't matter. You just need to know if the action is good, and the actors all work well together, and I have to say yes on both accounts. This movie is just so much fun, there is so many moments where I wanted to like hi-five the person sitting next to me. There was so many times where I just laughed out of sheer awesomeness and nostalgia. The movie is probably not a 'good' movie by any means, besides the action department. The acting a lot of the times, along with some of the supporting characters is pretty awful. Some of the dialogue is attrocious! The way the actors is look is unbelievable, you know, like you see Stallone doing a cartwheel or barrel roll, and you're like no, that wouldn't happen, but that all adds to the fun.

       When you go into the Expendables 2, you're not looking for "The Dark Knight Rises", you are just looking for a really fun, nastalgic movie, and I thought it was perfect for that. I was also very happy that they had Van Damme be the villain because I'm not a very big Van Damme fan. I have always admired his stunt work and martial arts, but I've never been a big fan of his movies, maybe I just haven't seen enough, but I have seen "Death Warrant" and "Blood Sport" which I had likes, but I haven't seen many films, other than those which weren't the greatest in my opinion. I was very happy that they had him as the villain and not part of the team, because I thought he was very menicing, and actually one of the problems I had with the movie, is I thought he could have been in it more of him.

    This movie has some amazing moments, whether it be the opening scene, which was really just one big action extravaganza, and might be one of the best action scenes in the whole movie. It starts out huge, with tons of explosions, and decapitations, and huge gory blood shots, but it was fantastic, it was really amazing. One thing that surprised me the most is Simon West. Now, when they announced he was directing, that was probably one of my biggest concerns, because of his work on the Jason Statham movie, "The Mechanic". I really thought that was one of the most poorly directed action films I had seen in awhile. I was very nervous on him taking up a movie that's even bigger in scale, along with bigger actors. He did pull it off though, and there is some very clear, excellent 80's movie type of shots. The dialogue isn't good, but you have some really funny lines here, a lot of self deprecating stuff, they make many jokes about their age, especially Arnold. Stallone also makes a lot of jokes about himself. Chuck Norris was great when he is in this movie., they really play off the whole persona, the Chuck Norris persona that has become such a popular thing in the 21st century now. The movie is much more self aware than in the first one.

     There is an airport sequence that is the climax of the movie that is amazing as well. You get Schwarzenegger, Willis, and Stallone shooting bad guys, it was a dream come true. Everything I wanted in the first Expendables film, with those three, and everyone else showed up in the second. In fact, my biggest problem with the movie is not the acting or dialogue, it's that the movie was too short to me, I thought to myself when they were wrapping stuff up, I was thinking, "We're done?!". This could have gone on for another 10 or 15 minutes, what's going on? We were really just getting to the big climax here. The Expendables 2 is not a good movie per say, but you should not be expecting that going in, I think it's a blast. It is one of the more satisfying movies of the summer, and a good way to end it. I have to give the Expendables 2 a very strong 3 1/2 out of 5.

Kevin Durant in a movie?!?

      NO!!! Kevin Durant is starring in a movie. Not only does the movie look terrible, as they are trying to copy a bit of Like Mike, but Kevin Durant is just embarrasing himself. He is a legend, and NBA legends don't act unless you are Michael Jordan. Honestly, he just did it for the money, I mean why else would he? Everybody, even if you are Kevin Durant's number one fan ^^^ (No pun intended) Try not to see this for your own good.

"Bullet to the Head" Trailer

       "Bullet to the Head" with Sylvester Stallone, and co-star Christian Slater, had released it's first trailer today, if you like Sly you'll like this. I think it looks okay for the most part, but in 2013 we'll see what delivery Stallone brings us. It is based off a french comic book, which lets us know Stallone is somewhat of a hero. The movie is about a cop and a hitman living through there partners death, they form an alliance afterwards in order to bring down their common enemy.Watch the trailer, and look for it in theatres next year!

"The Last Stand" Trailer

    New trailer for "The Last Stand" with Arnold. It has almost all likes on YouTube and no dislikes so that's a good sign, watch it! This is going to be action-packed. Welcome back Arnold!

"Avengers 2" Release Date

       The extremely successful "Avengers" is coming back for more in 2015, make sure to see the 2nd on the 1st of May, I hate to get everyone amped and hyped since it's so far away, but it is coming!!

"The Wolverine" Storyline

     The Wolverine, which is a new project for the X-Men series has confirmed it is shot in Japan, which is different for a superhero movie, not necessarily the typical environment. Also, Fox Productions has publicized a short summary of what we will be seeing in the film, the story is:

THE WOLVERINE finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.

Not a huge fan of the X-Men origins, except I loved X-Men: First Class, but I did read that it is nothing like Origins and they are taking a step away, so it will be an improvement, exciting things to come!

Jake Gyllenhaal to star in "Mississippi Grind

     Turns out, actor Jake Gyllenhaal will be casted for the starring role in a new drama, "Mississippi Grind", directed and written by the folks who brought you "Its Kind of A Funny Story" with Zach Galifianakis. No information has been given on the plot, but if it comes the writers of the "...Funny Story" film it should be good.

Iron Man 3 Production Delay

    Iron Man 3, the new movie starring Robert Downey Jr. will be post poning production for a short time so RDJ can heal from what is just a minor ankle injury. Once he's healed, they will be right back on top of the things. As you see in the official movie poster, Iron Man 3 will be heading your way next summer!

For information on any of the series you can go to the link right here ----->

"The Long Red Road" Introduction

     "The Long Red Road' is a successful play, that is now in production of adapting to the big screen. Tom Hardy and Michael Shannon have signed on to the project, and it will be very interesting because Hardy acted as Sam in the actual play. Shannon is intending on playing Hardy's (Sam) older brother in the film.

      The play/film takes place on an Indian reservation in South Dakota, where Sam (played by Hardy) lives and attempts to drink away his sorrows. I'm sure it will be good.

David Cronenberg on TDKR, Nolan, Superhero Movies.

       In a recent 'NextMovie' interview with David Cronenberg, a respected director of many films, he had expressed his disappointment and perception of the dark knight rises, the batman by nolan trilogy, and superhero movies itself.

He was quoted saying:

"I don’t think they are making them an elevated art form. I think it’s still Batman running around in a stupid cape. I just don’t think it’s elevated. Christopher Nolan’s best movie is “Memento,” and that is an interesting movie. I don’t think his Batman movies are half as interesting though they’re 20 million times the expense. What he is doing is some very interesting technical stuff, which, you know, he’s shooting IMAX and in 3-D. That’s really tricky and difficult to do. I read about it in “American Cinematography Magazine,” and technically, that’s all very interesting. The movie, to me, they’re mostly boring."-David Cronenberg, NextMovie (Badass Digest).

"But a superhero movie, by definition, you know, it’s comic book. It’s for kids. It’s adolescent in its core. That has always been its appeal, and I think people who are saying, you know, “Dark Knight Rises” is, you know, supreme cinema art,” I don’t think they know what the f**k they’re talking about."-David Cronenberg, NextMovie (Badass Digest).

       I'm sure I'm not the only one disagree with him, I'm sure almost everyone does. I have no other things to say, than "wow, what the hell".............

"Raiders of the Lost Ark" Update

Kick-Ass 2, 2 Guns 2013 Releases

Kick-Ass, which was released in 2010, is a movie based on a comic book. It is one of the most fun, because of its ridiculousness and gore. Thankfully, a sequel to Kick-Ass is to be released June 28th next year, I'm excited to see even more of the awesomeness, but I have to wait some time.

2 Guns, an action film starring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington has now officially announced it's release date for 2013, and will arrive to the big screen August 16th!

Snow White & The Huntsman with no Snow White!

Snow White & The Hunstman is coming back for more...without snow white? Not only did Kristin Stewart make a fool of herself, but she's losing acting jobs because of her fling with the director of the film, Rupert Sanders. Universal Studios hasn't made a public confirmation, but we all know why Kristin is no longer Snow White, obviously...because she's a bad actress! The Spinoff will be announced soon, and will still be directed by Sanders. None of this makes any sense, but neither does any of Kristin Stewarts movies.

"The Tomb" Info/News

Wow, did the world forgive Arnold fast!!! He has numerous movies coming out in 2013, a couple of them being "The Last Stand" and "The Tomb". "The Tomb" which hits theatres next January, features Stallone as well, them being the two front man for the movie. The storyline is somewhat entertaining, just theres holes that need to be filled, and by filled i mean clarrified, because they're not so much thought out correctly. 

"Ray Breslin is the world's foremost authority on structural security. After analyzing every high security prison and learning a vast array of survival skills so he can design escape-proof prisons, his skills are put to the test. He's framed and incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself. He needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars."

Don't get me wrong, it's a great concept. One thing that I don't get though is that Ray Breslin built the 'prison', but yet when he's trapped in it, he can't get out of the own jail he built. That's like setting up a safe for yourself, but you forget what numbers to to put in to unlock and access. Tell me what you think. Comment and Follow! Check for more of the "The Tomb" on Flick Report in the upcoming months. I'm sure it will be good, Sly is never disappointing.

"The Last Stand" Details/Info

"I'm back!" He says in the trailer for the new soon to be released "Expendables 2". Turns out Arnold wasn't joking as he's got one hell of an agenda for the years ahead. This poster for "The Last Stand" was just released earlier today along with the synopsis:
       After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell (Peter Stormare), Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow. Cortez’ path: straight through Summerton Junction, where the whole of the U.S. law enforcement, including Agent John Bannister (Forest Whitaker) will have their final opportunity to intercept him before the violent fugitive slips across the border forever. At first reluctant to become involved, and then counted out because of the perceived ineptitude of his small town force, Owens ultimately rallies his team and takes the matter into his own hands, setting the stage for a classic showdown.

Sounds pretty intense. If you want to see Arnold make his comeback to the big screen, check him out along with a shitload of other legends in the new movie coming out next week, "The Expendables 2".

"Seven Psychopaths" Exclusive Trailer

       Brand new exclusive trailer for "Seven Psychopaths" which comes out October 12th. It's a comedy directed by Martin McDonagh, and features actors Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits. Hopefully Colin Farrell can redeem himself after the lame "Total Recall", by playing the major role in this. The plot is very original and is a great idea, sounds like a lot of fun to me. 
                Marty (Farrell) is a struggling writer who dreams of finishing his screenplay, "Seven Psychopaths." Billy (Rockwell) is Marty’s best friend, an unemployed actor and part time dog thief, who wants to help Marty by any means necessary. All he needs is a little focus and inspiration. Hans (Walken) is Billy’s partner in crime: a religious man with a violent past. Charlie (Harrelson) is the psychopathic gangster whose beloved dog Billy and Hans have just stolen. Charlie is unpredictable and extremely violent and wouldn’t think twice about killing anyone or anything associated with the theft. Marty is going to get all the focus and inspiration he needs, just as long as he lives to tell the tale.

"Lawless" HD Trailer

       The new film, "Lawless" will be coming to theatres soon, and looks like it's going to be a good one. With a major cast with guys like Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, and Shia LaBeouf. This film looks fantastic, and just from the trailer, you can tell it will be a hit. Can't wait to see it!

"Lone Survivor" News/Details

       This could be good! Peter Berg, director of numerous movies, one including "Hancock", has now took on the job of directing a new movie titled "Lone Survivors". Lone Survivors is based on the book, which is about a Navy SEAL team’s fight to stay alive during a Taliban ambush in the midst of their 2005 mission to kill a terrorist leader in Afghanistan. The guys you see above  (Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, and Mark Wahlberg) will be some of the leading men on the big screen, and will be joined by even more stars like Eric Bana and Emile Hirsch. No details have been put out for a release date or pre-production. I will look forward to seeing this though, as I'm sure everyone else will too, stay tuned for updates!

"The Expendables 3" Talks

  The action packed, badass, classic, favorited series "The Expendables" is adding on another film to the series, which will make it it's third. Yes, I know the Expendables 2 is coming out next week, and there is already talks for a third...that's very practical! So, the producer was like you know what this cast of Sly Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold "GET TO THE CHOPPA!!" Schwarzenegger, Randy Couture and Liam Hemsworth Cyrus isn't enough! For the next movie, they got Nicolas Cage, who has made himself a joke, and are trying to get the following: Clint Eastwood, who is a legend, Harrison Ford, who is a legend, and Wesley Snipes, who was a legend, then went to prison, but if he comes out to do this then he will be a legend. Now nothing is super official, but to get this cast is a huge move, and to pull it off would be spectacular. Let's see if they can do it! Go Avi Lerner!!! In the meantime, catch the Expendables 2 Friday, the 17th. If you haven't seen the trailer or want to check out other shit, click here>

"The Campaign" Movie Review

                 Today's review is of "The Campaign", a new comedy starring Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell. It is also directed by the famous Jay Roach. It is about two quirky politicians that are rivals against one another, who happen to be running for a spot as congressman in a district in North Carolina. "The Campaign" was one of my most anticipated comedy's of the summer, mainly because the trailer was actually one of the few comedic trailers that made me laugh out loud numerous times. I do like Will Ferell in certain movies, a lot of them are funny, but then again, I don't like them much. Zach Galifianakis, who I think is very talented repeats himself a lot in the roles he portrays. The trailer looked decieving, it looked like a different role for both of them. I was waiting to see how this movie tackles the subject of politics. Unfortanately, after seeing it, this movie really is just another Will Ferrell flop. Zach Galifianakis' character is a little bit different, but it is too much alike Alan Garner from "The Hangover". This time, he has a little bit more of a brain, and is more developed character wise. Will Ferrell is up to his regular shtick, just doing the loud mouth, red neck guy. Overall, playing an irritating idiot... 
               What I did notice a lot in this movie is Will Ferrell was improvising lines, and a lot of it doesn't work in his movies. Like most Will Ferrell comedies, the delivery is a hit or miss, you will get a brief section that is humorous and funny, but there was a lot of laugh-out-louds for a majority of the movie, and then you will get a dull phase with vulgar humor. Luckily for both of them, even though some of there jokes don't work, they both bring enough heart and life to their characters to make it a little bit more bearable.
               I want to start out saying this movie isn't bad at all by any means, but it is pretty inconsistent, and a little misleading for reasons here and there. This film could have had so much more smart humor, especially in an election year, I thought they would take more digs and they had many opportunities to do that, but never did. They did not make one single Obama or Romney joke, which could have tied in well with the scenarios. Like I said the movie has some very funny,great moments, as in one scene involving this dog that was hysterical. The movie near the end, is very predictable, and you can tell what will happen from the middle of the movie. Near the end, it starts to get super cliched, and not believable. It evolves into this uncentimental, cheesy story. There is a lot of pacing from back and forth from one thing to the next. There may be a time where a lot of jokes hit, and then may be 15-20 minutes of them digging up "scraps" from anything that they can find, so they attempt it. 
                   Another thing bad to apply into any comedy movie, is you don't get to feel for the characters. They do make Zach Galfiianakis likeable in certain spots and Will Ferrell too, but you never care for who wins. So, at the revealing of who wins, you kind of are like "oh great, cool, whatever". I didn't really care who won either way. The writers try to make you care for at least one of the candidates, I actually cared more for the supporting characters (Jason Sudeikis, who plays Will's campaign manager). I did like Jason Sudeikis a lot, I would almost want to see a spin off of him more, and Dylan McDermott, who plays Zach Galfianakis' campaign director. I thought the supporting casts were some of the best parts of this movie. If you like Will Ferrell or Zach Galfianakis' movies, you will probably enjoy this. One misconception, is that if you think from the trailer, this movie will be hilarious, it's not, it's inconsistent and predictable. It does have enough laughs where I say to check it out. 
                   I rate it as one of the weakest comedies of the year because of it's competition, but it's not necessarily bad. A disappointment is it had a lot of potential, but didn't live up to it. "The Campaign" could have been a smarter movie, but mainly was just juvenial humor. It's definitely one of Will Ferrell's better movies. Overall, a descent movie, a fun watch.
