Genius or madman, auteur or amateur, Tyler Perry is a fascinating artist. And while it shouldn’t earn him either new fans or detractors, 'Temptation' is his most polished showcase to date of the bizarre and utterly irresistible divide between his razor-sharp creativity and decidedly duller technical precision. The story of a bored therapist who gets involved with one of her clients, Perry’s film wields melodrama like a hatchet, wringing moralistic justice from a story that’s remarkably more complex than it’s being sold – and, in fact, than Perry probably realizes.
Kim Kardashian is so desperately trying to prove to the world that she's a real actress. Remember that time a while back when she was lobbying for her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and her critics were like, "Um, no. You're not a legit actress"? Well, the reality TV star is seemingly trying to change the tides by getting a featured gig in Tyler Perry's upcoming flick 'Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.' Check out the first trailer after the jump.
Last night, Saturday Night Live took on a target that's been pretty ripe for parody for some time now: the films and work of Tyler Perry, AKA, Madea, AKA, Alex Cross. In the case of this very funny digital short, it turns out that they're one in the same...literally. As in Cross and Madea are split personalities inhabiting the same body and they must work together to solve mysteries. Yeah, it's weird.
'Alex Cross' is a movie that is almost as insane as its villain -- and its villain is a psychotic master assassin who poses as an mixed martial artist and enters himself in an underground fight club to seduce a woman so he can gain access to her house and torture her to death by cutting off her fingers one at a time. It's not particularly "good" -- but it is kind of interesting, in that way that crazy people often are.
Reaction to 'Prometheus' was mixed - some people loved it and some people hated it. Well, you can count Tyler Perry as one of the ones who hated it and he's going to do something about it: he's going to make his own sci-fi movie. (Yes, we're still talking about the guy who dresses as the sassy fat old grandma in those movies.)
We recently brought you the poster for 'Alex Cross' and now - just in time for the latest Tyler Perry/Madea movie - there's a trailer for the film, which sells Perry playing serious. His Alex Cross is dealing with a serial killer (Matthew Fox), and eventually gets in the killer's cross-hairs.
