All the Money in the World

News of Mark Wahlberg taking a $1.5 million paycheck for his reshoots on Ridley Scott‘s All the Money in the World came as a shock to many, especially when his co-star Michelle Williams was only paid 1% of that. Details of the staggering wage gap only got darker when it was reported that Wahlberg would only approve of Christopher Plummer, who was to be Kevin Spacey‘s replacement, if he got paid a large sum of money. It was a polarizing subject, with some saying Wahlberg was greedy, while others criticized Williams for not asking enough. To make matters worse, both are represented by the same agency, WME.

However, in order to quell an already volatile situation, Wahlberg has donated his $1.5 million paycheck to the Time’s Up movement. Plus, Williams has released a statement responding to the donation. More on the story below.

There Was A Staggering Pay Difference Between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg For ‘All The Money In The World’ Reshoots

All The Money in the World

After Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault last year, the actor was taken off numerous projects from his Master Class to House of Cards. But the one move that made shockwaves was when Ridley Scott decided to reshoot all of Spacey’s scenes in All the Money in the World and replace him with Christopher Plummer. It was a daunting task. And one that proved to be costly. But the film ended up being recognized by many for Scott’s ability to complete the reshoots in nine to ten days, and still release the film on its original release date.

The reshoots were only one part of the story, however. It’s how much the film’s co-stars were paid that is making headlines now. According to various reports, the pay between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg was staggeringly different. The former was only paid a mere $80 dollars per day, while the latter took home a near $2 million paycheck. More on this story below.

The Man Who Invented Christmas

An official trailer has been released for The Man Who Invented Christmas. The movie is the latest to tell the story of the creation of a classic story, similar to what we saw in Finding Neverland with the creation of Peter Pan, and the inspiration for Winnie the Pooh we’ll be seeing in Goodbye Christopher Robin.

It follows author Charles Dickens as he finds inspiration for what would become a holiday season classic, A Christmas Carol, a story that has been adapted into many different movies and TV specials over the years. Dickens is played in the movie by Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast, Downton Abbey), with Christopher Plummer (A Beautiful Mind, The Sound of Music) playing Ebenezer Scrooge.

Blu-ray Review: Dreamscape (Collector's Edition)

Dreamscape
Blu-ray (Collector’s Edition)
Director: Joseph Ruben
Screenwriter: David Loughery, Chuck Russell, Joseph Ruben
Cast: Dennis Quaid, Max von Sydow, Christopher Plummer, Eddie Albert, Kate Capshaw, David Patrick Kelly
Distributor: Scream Factory
Rated PG-13 | 99 Minutes
Release Date: December 13, 2016

“So, Jane, what you do here, in effect, is count boners?”

Directed by Joseph Ruben (The Pom Pom Girls), 1984’s Dreamscape has the unique distinction of being the second film released to theaters that was rated PG-13 under then new MPAA ratings guidelines, following Red Dawn, which come out five days earlier. And interestingly enough, the film stars Kate Capeshaw, who starred in a violent PG-rated blockbuster that would help create the PG-13 rating: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

Co-written by Ruben, David Loughery (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier), and Chuck Russell (A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, 1988’s The Blob), Dreamscape stars Dennis Quaid as Alex Gardner, a man with psychic abilities who is recruited by his old mentor, Dr. Novotny (Max von Sydow), to join the dreamscape project, a government-funded program to diagnose and treat sleep disorders.

Rated X By An All-White Jury! Baadasssss’s 20 Favorite Grindhouse Films Of All Time

Grindhouse

I was born a poor white child in the waning winter days of 1979. Never was I able to step foot inside a grindhouse theater, and the only time I ever went to a drive-in theater that wasn’t doubling as a flea market was to see Fletch when I was barely old enough to remember going in the first place. VHS, DVD, Blu-ray, and spending a lot of time at the houses of friends and relatives with access to pay cable movie channels helped fill me in on the deranged cinematic greatness I was too young to catch first run in its proper theatrical venue. Being born in the wrong place at the seriously wrong time was no excuse for me to not become a fervent admirer of the finest exploitation movies ever made.

B-movies, C-movies, Z-movies, I’ve seen a lot. If I lived a few extra lifetimes after my first ran out I could never be able to see all of the movies I ever wanted to see. My DVD and Blu-ray collection isn’t massive (getting there though) and yet there are still a few titles I have yet to sit down and watch. Sue me, I stay pretty busy most of the time. Once upon a time there were theaters from the largest metropolises to the smallest one-horse burgs that specialized in playing the kinds of offbeat, occasionally undefinable, made-for-a-quick-buck flicks that were too gonzo to show its grimy celluloid visage in mainstream cinemas that primarily attracted bored suburbanites and their spoiled, hateful children. You could see a lot of these schlocky gems in double or triple feature bills or “dusk ’till dawn” marathons that cost substantially less for a ticket than a IMAX 3D screening, even with inflation taken into account. You definitely got your money’s worth, that could not be denied.

Disney In Depth: Blu-ray Review: ‘Up’ Five-Disc Combo

Up Blu-ray cover

Up
5-Disc 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital l 4-Disc Blu-ray l 3-Disc Blu-ray
Directed by Pete Docter
Starring Edward Asner, Jordan Nagai, Christopher Plummer, Bob Peterson
Disney-Pixar
Release Date: December 4, 2012

Get ready to soar into Pixar’s tenth film, the studio’s first Oscar-nominated feature for Best Picture and quite possibly its most sentimental. Though Up already claims a place in our hearts – and on store shelves – now it has arrived on Blu-ray 3D. Is this new five-disc package worth the price? Let us hover toward a review of this emotional roller coaster.

Whether you caught Up in theaters or in its earlier home video release – or perhaps this may be your first screening – every viewing promotes laughs, tears, and much self-reflection. The most epically simple romance between balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen and his adoring wife Ellie is a testament to Pixar’s genius, in eliciting every emotion in the book in the span of ten minutes. Their darling story, which pervades past their marriage, transcends the medium of film. Up’s tastefully-done treatment of love and loss captures the nostalgic filmmaking of bygone decades. As Carl realizes his lifelong aspiration to fly his home to Paradise Falls, the supposedly real quest takes off. But we know that while “adventure is out there,” the true adventure is that of living, making memories, and loving others.
