The Twilight Saga: New Moon Extended Edition Blu-ray review

New Moon

Lionsgate Films / Summit Entertainment
Rated PG-13
130 minutes
Release Date: October 23, 2018

The opening dream scene in the meadow gets me every time as Bella sees herself as old with Edward. I think it is a beautiful concept as Bella (Kristen Stewart) worries about aging while her true vampire love Edward (Robert Pattinson) stays forever young at seventeen, and will not turn her. It’s Bella’s birthday, and as much as she “doth” protests, everyone reminds her of the celebrating. She really doesn’t get Edward’s attitude, until her disastrous birthday party at the Cullens where she almost becomes dessert that Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) explains it all to her.

We saw our first look at Leonardo DiCaprio as actor Rick Dalton and Brad Pitt as his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth. Now we are getting our first look at Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, the pregnant actress wife of director Roman Polanski, who was one of the Manson murder victims.

First Image From Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Directed By Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will take audiences back to the golden age of hippy Hollywood while also exploring Charles Manson and the murder of Sharon Tate. The director has always had an interesting perspective in telling fictionalized versions of history. So it should be very entertaining to see what kind of story he has to tell here.

Production on the film started today for a 2019 summer release. And though it may be a while before we see anything substantial, photo drops should be enough to hold us over in the long run. The first of these comes from Leonardo DiCaprio, who has released an image of him and co-star Brad Pitt, in attire that befits the ’60s era. Check it out below.

Ocean's 8 header image

At some point in time we all take the metro train. Most of us take it to commute to work. But for others, they use it for a different purpose. Like using it to plan a heist or perhaps as a getaway vehicle from a heist. That’s the image we are seeing in the new photo for Ocean’s 8 starring Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, the sister of Danny Ocean (George Clooney) of the Ocean’s Trilogy, and her entire crew.

Check out the image here below, along with more details about the cast.

First Look: Johnny Depp Is Whitey Bulger In ‘Black Mass’

Johnny Depp in Black Mass Header Image

Warner Bros. has revealed our first look at Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in director Scott Cooper‘s Black Mass. Bulger is the notorious South Boston gangster who spent 16 years at large until he was found hiding in Santa Monica, CA in 2011. He was then convicted of 31 of 32 counts of racketeering, money laundering, extortion, and weapons charges, including his complicity in 19 murders. Jack Nicholson’s character Frank Costello in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed is loosely based on Bulger’s criminal career.

Cooper’s new film will bring the life and crimes of Bulger to the big screen, while also covering his being an FBI informant tasked with providing intel to bring down the Italian Mafia. As you can see, based on the header photo, Depp is playing someone who is the polar opposite of Captain Jack Sparrow or one of those Tim Burton characters. Hit the jump for more.

The 5 Tony Scott Movies You Really Must See (If You Haven’t Already)

BAADASSSSS!   |

Five Tony Scott Movies

Last Sunday millions of people around the world where stunned when the news broke that Tony Scott, big time Hollywood director and younger brother of Ridley Scott, had committed suicide for reasons yet to be explained. You can read Empress Eve’s wonderful obituary of the late filmmaker here. Although Scott’s movies were never granted the often unfettered adulation critics and cinéastes willingly gave his brother, he was responsible for some of the coolest and most popular modern Hollywood action films. After scoring two back-to-back blockbusters with Top Gun and Beverly Hills Cop II, Scott started to make the more interesting movies that would come to define his later years as a director. Some of them were smash hits, but rarely scaled the heights as his earlier career-making successes, and several of them were box office flops that later found new life on home video and cable.

Submitted for your approval are the five films I believe in my heart of hearts to be the essentials of Tony Scott’s unusual but beloved and rewarding filmography. If your knowledge of the man’s work doesn’t extend beyond his ability to make Tom Cruise look good in the cockpit of a fighter jet and the front seat of a battered stock car then you might find this list worth a read.
