Hustlers Trailer


The pawn shop is the last resort for most broke people; the place where the impoverished and the desperate sell off their most prized valuables in exchange for an obscenely disproportionate amount of money. In 'Hustlers', it's where three dramatic stories begin; first, a pair of newlyweds find themselves in the shop where, as fate would have it, the groom finds the ring of his first wife who has been missing for some time. While he decides to seek out her kidnapper, a pair of small time criminals are concocting a plan to rob their meth dealer - though their armed robbery plan is inhibited when one of them pawns his shotgun. Meanwhile, one serious-minded Elvis Presley impersonator wishes to pawn his alleged gold Elvis memorabilia as he moves into the town hoping to land a new job in a fairground.

Hair Brained Review


Excellent

Gentle and very smart, this low-key comedy gets under the skin as it follows a smart young kid into the adult world. Without quite becoming either a frat-house comedy or coming-of-age odyssey, the film knowingly avoids cliches while telling a hugely engaging story with so much charm that it's virtually impossible to stop smiling.

The kid is 13-year-old frizzy-haired genius Eli (Wolff), who longs to attend Harvard but is instead stuck with 27-best choice Whittman College. His first friend there is the oldest freshman, 30-something Leo (Fraser), who is trying to reinvent himself and introduces Eli to the campus' party lifestyle. Then after a run-in with three Harvard snobs, Eli decides to teach his desired university a lesson: he joins Whittman's Mastermind team (alongside Bergman, Lee and de Jesus) and swiftly starts turning their losing streak around as they climb through the ranks and head to a showdown with Harvard at the national finals.

While the competition plot follows a fairly standard trajectory, writer Wierzbianski and director Kent refuse to indulge in trite formulaic melodramatics. Even the way Eli falls for a teen (Garner) from the local town feels fresh and unexpected. And while the humour is rarely laugh-out-loud funny, the smiles are earned because they are grounded in the characters rather than cheap jokes. It also helps that each character is a vivid bundle of complex energy and emotion, nicely played by an up-for-it cast.

Vanessa Hudgens Steps Into High Drama With 'Gimme Shelter' - [Trailer + Pictures]


Vanessa Hudgens Rosario Dawson Brendan Fraser

It takes one look at Miley Cyrus to see how becoming a child star can completely distort a star’s potential to be taken seriously. But being a Disney child isn’t a death sentence, as Vanessa Hudgens proves.

Vanessa Hudgens Gimme ShelterVanessa Hudgens in Gimme Shelter

The 'High School Musical' star hasn’t employed dramatic tactics to get noticed, nor has she exploited her sexuality to prove that she’s an adult. Instead, she’s flirted with some bridge roles, before stepping up with Spring Breakers – a coming of age film that the critics didn’t see coming.

Escape From Planet Earth Trailer


Scorch Supernova is a highly respected astronaut who also happens to be a brawny blue alien from the planet Baab. While spending his working hours rescuing distressed civilians from various planets, Scorch's intelligent but significantly scrawnier brother Gary guides him from mission control at the national space agency BASA. However, Scorch's strength and bravery is tested when the BASA chief Lena informs him of an SOS call from one extremely dangerous planet. In spite of Gary's strong warnings, Scorch sets out to rescue his fellow alien from whatever danger might be lurking but finds himself trapped and imprisoned by the planet's inhabitants; one of which is the alien-hating Shanker who vows to rid the universe of all alien lifeforms. Gary finds himself landed with a new responsibility; he must now become the rescuer and aid his brother in his escape from the dark planet and with it, secure the future of his own.

Inkheart Review


Bad
Nothing warms a writer's icy heart more than something that champions books -- and reading, specifically. As communication becomes more and more a collection of texting abbreviations and message board protocols, the art of literature appears to be slowly sinking. So something like Inkheart should inspire all kinds of good will for fellow scribe Cornelia Funke, especially with its love of imagination, fiction, and all things erudite. Sadly, Hollywood's hand in the mix has created yet another attempted Harry Potter clone, a clever idea anemically adapted to capitalize on its commercial, not creative potential.

Mo Folchart (Brendan Fraiser) is a "silvertongue" -- one of a rare few who can "read" characters out of books and bring them to life. Sadly, he discovers this trait one night while entertaining his wife Resa (Sienna Guillory) and their daughter Meggie (Eliza Bennett). While indulging in a passage from the fantasy novel Inkheart, he unleashes fire juggler Dustfinger (Paul Bettany) while accidentally sending his spouse into the tome. Now, 10 years later, Mo is still looking to save her, even though his efforts have let loose more fictional faces from the book, including evil master thief Capricorn (Andy Serkis). But the criminal is not content with being a viable member of the real world. He wants to rule all of mankind, and wants Mo to help him in this horrible pursuit.
