Instead of embracing any semblance of light and levity left over from his first film, filmmaker Scott Cooper’s highly anticipated follow-up to his 2009 hit ‘Crazy Heart’ goes straight for the darkness, never quite emerging on the other side of it, much to the detriment of both the feature and its audience.
Cooper’s ‘Out of the Furnace’ is a miserable experience, and though that seems to be entirely the point, that doesn’t mean it needs to come with such little redeeming value, at least as it applies to the film’s emotional stakes. The first act runs through a series of ever-increasing bad situations, bad acts, bad decisions, and bad accidents, but it's a lack of emotional investment that keep them from hitting with any sort of impact. It’s just one big stew of bad stuff, and the only interesting thing about it is waiting for everything to inevitably boil over.

Christian Bale might be done as Batman, but that doesn't mean he's done seeking vengeance for a family member against a crime syndicate in a corrupt town. It's not 'The Dark Knight' but it's 'Out of the Furnace' and it could win Bale another Oscar. Don't believe us? Watch the trailer and see for yourself.

With Showtime's 'Dexter' soon to shut off its bloodbath, and 'Breaking Bad' due to be broken in three weeks time, FX is rather quickly looking to fill the void of amoral killers on cable TV. Sources report that the network has begun development of an 'American Psycho' TV series to follow the book and film of the same name, but what would become of serial-killing icon Patrick Bateman after so many years?

The long-rumored Christian Bale is confirmed for the role of Moses himself, but the latest development sees the incredible Joel Edgerton in talks to play Ramses.
