I watch a lot of 'Project Runway.' My wife likes it -- and, yeah, I like it too. A show dedicated to fashion design that features creative and powerful women is a weird thing to think about while watching a Michael Bay movie but that's exactly what I did during 'Pain and Gain.' Bay could learn a thing or two from that show about editing. Not in the cinematic, cutting shots together sense; that he's got. This is a different kind of editing.
It's the kind that is often called out by the 'Runway' judges when they tell the contestants (I'm paraphrasing), "This is too busy. You need to edit. That blue fuzzy hat that looks like a tribble distracts from the gorgeous, ornately sequined dress. The dress is enough. You don't need the tribble hat. Edit."
A Michael Bay movie -- particularly 'Pain & Gain' -- is a sequined dress with a blue tribble hat.
Flexing its way into theaters in a few weeks is Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain,' an action-comedy about meatheads whose dreams are significantly bigger than their brains. A new poster for the film has appeared online accompanied by a slew of pics, and of course it's dominated by Dwayne Johnson's pecs. How could it not be?
Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain' has just released a red-band NSFW trailer, and it shows something we already knew about the film: It was going to be a bit brutal. It's been almost a year since we first saw a picture of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson barbequing a hand, but that appears to be only one part of the demented goings on in the film, as evinced by this new trailer.
'Transformers 4' - the sorta sequel/reboot to the mega-franchise - is gearing up to shoot in Michigan this spring with Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor filling in for Shia LaBeouf. We haven't heard much about the film's plot (aside from the aforementioned "it's a sequel but it's also totally a reboot" notes from director Michael Bay) but today we have the 'Transformers 4' plot synopsis...and it sounds like pretty much all the other 'Transformers' movies.
Imagine, if you will, a world in which Mark Wahlberg played Captain James T. Kirk's father in the J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek' reboot. As it turns out, that's something that almost actually happened, but Wahlberg had a hard time grasping the concept.
While Seth MacFarlane was hosting the 2013 Oscars, his cinematic alter ego Ted appeared on stage as well with co-star Mark Wahlberg to present the sound awards. Wondering how they did that? Watch Ted and Mark Wahlberg together at the 2013 Oscars to see for yourself.
There are 8.2 million people living in New York City. Combine the population of Slovenia, Macedonia, Lithuania and you still aren't anywhere near what we've got. More importantly, why would you do that? New York is the capital of the world for at least a few more decades before China takes over. As such, those of us who live here can be excused for thinking that the power machinations in our city take on all the gravitas of Shakespeare or, as Chance Kelly (one of cinema's up and coming "that guy"s) in 'Broken City' calls it, an Italian opera.
