I don't mean to sound flip concerning a very serious topic, but I'm not really sure what else to glean from Peter Berg's 'Lone Survivor,' a based-on-true-story tale of a Navy SEAL operation gone south. It is a brutal, unpleasant way to spend two hours. The violence is relentless and unsubtle, and when the audio/visual PTSD smoke clears, there's the realization that you've learned nothing about these characters or the wider situation in Afghanistan. Berg's sole intent is to simply show the job these men do - “gotta pay the bills,” one character IMs to his wife. While slice-of-life narrative can sometimes be rewarding, in a film with as much manipulation as this it just isn't enough. 'Lone Survivor' rattles but it doesn't stir.
'2 Guns' was one of the more pleasant surprises of 2013, a light but very fun action comedy that wrung a surprising amount of entertainment out of Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as a buddy cop duo. It's he kind of action movie that has no pretensions about what it is - it wants to be a good time and it pulls it off with aplomb.
The film hits Blu-ray, DVD and your usual host of digital outlets today, but if you want a sneak peek at an exclusive deleted scene from the film, you've come to the right place.
How exactly do you bounce back from a critical and financial bomb as big as 'Battleship'? If you're director Peter Berg, you go make 'Lone Survivor,' a war film based on true events that's already started generating extremely positive pre-release buzz. The newest trailer for the film has arrived and we certainly hope the finished film is as intense as it looks here.
Before Leonardo DiCaprio boarded the 'Titanic,' and before he became a recurring star in Martin Scorsese's films, he starred in the 1995 film 'The Basketball Diaries.' An adaptation of the book of the same name by Jim Carroll, the film follows a teen, Carroll (DiCaprio), as he slides deeper into the depths of an alarming drug addiction. The film also starred Mark Wahlberg long before he became a beloved action star. Eighteen years later, we revisit DiCaprio, Wahlberg and the rest of the cast and see what they're up to now.
We haven't seen much from 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' -- we know that the Dinobots will somehow be involved, and that all of our favorite transforming robots will be back to kick ass alongside Mark Wahlberg and a new cast of characters. Speaking of which, Michael Bay has offered up our first look at the humans in the film with a brand new, official image.
In 1997, Paul Thomas Anderson made Mark Wahlberg a huge, huge star with the film 'Boogie Nights.' The film followed a dishwasher who uses his very, uh, sizable talents to enter the world of the adult film industry. While his star quickly rises, his life -- and the lives of his colleagues and friends -- begins to unravel. We take a look back at the cast of this film 16 years later (if you can believe it) to see what they're up to now.
'Transformers 4' has been busy filming in Detroit, setting up car chases, explosions and the like. Aside from the numerous photos of the newly designed autobots and decepticons -- the various leaked set videos -- director Michael Bay and team Paramount have yet to reveal any official looks at the new cast ... until now!
