Barbershop 3: The Next Cut Trailer


The Barbershop gang are back once again. Having had to team up with Angie's ladies salon to be able to stay afloat, the Barbershop is no longer a man only zone and not all of Calvin's customers are happy having to share but they make it work.

Sharing the salon floor is the least of the towns problems, ever more frequently their streets are being overrun by gangs fighting for territory, new corner boys and customers. Calvin and the residents who love their town and want it returning to its former state, decide to take matters into their own hands.

Barbershop: The Next Cut is the forth film in franchise which includes a spinoff called Beauty Shop. The film was directed by Malcolm D. Lee who directed the hugely successful 'The Best Man' series of films.

Top Five Review


Very Good

Chris Rock has essentially written and directed a film based on one of his own standup routines, and the result is as hilarious as we'd expect. It's also a clever skewering of show business, from the difficulty of changing a public image to the never-ending intrusion of the press. But while the film is consistently smart and funny, it's also a bit of an inside joke, taking on an industry that's so absurd that ridiculing it might be too easy.

Rock plays Andre Allen, a former comic who found international fame playing a furry police officer in three Hammy The Bear movies. But now he wants some respect as an actor, so he has produced a serious period drama called Uprize!, about the 18th century Haitian revolution. On the day of the film's gala premiere, Andre grants an interview to New York Times journalist Chelsea (Rosario Dawson), who follows him around town as he runs errands both promoting the film and preparing for his heavily publicised wedding to reality TV star Erica (Gabrielle Union). Against his better judgement, he begins to drop his guard with Chelsea, introducing her to members of his family and inviting her to his bachelor party, which is being staged for Erica's show.

The film's one false note is the whiff of a romantic-comedy as Andre and Chelsea begin to open up to each other. Fortunately, Rock allows this to merely simmer in the background as he gets on with his wicked commentary about life in the entertainment industry. The dialogue is packed with pithy observations, sarcastic gags and knowing jabs that could only come from someone who has lived (and survived) this crazy lifestyle. Even more interesting are the darker undercurrents. Andre is a recovering alcoholic who isn't sure he can still be funny now that he's sober.

Chris Rock Reveals 'Top Five' Is Closely Modelled On Real Life Comics


Chris Rock Cedric The Entertainer J.B. Smoove Tracy Morgan Rosario Dawson Gabrielle Union

Chris Rock's latest movie 'Top Five' is about a comedian trying to make it big in the world of serious acting, while his personal life is thrust more and more into the public eye. If you think that doesn't sound too far from any American comedian's real life, you might be right.

Is Chris Rock playing himself in 'Top Five'?

While well-known for his TV show 'Everybody Hates Chris', his voice role in the 'Madagascar' films and for his stand-up shows, it seems that Chris Rock hasn't had too much trouble with success in his career. However, he still maintains that his character represents damn near most black comedians' lives. 'I play a guy named Andre Allen; a comedian, actor, kind of famous, a cross between Chris Tucker, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Eddie Murphy - like an amalgamation of all of us and whatever people think of us', he reveals.

Planes: Fire & Rescue Review


Good

Despite the fact that this too-soon spin-off feels like a mere cash-in on the Disney Cars/Planes marketing machine, this sequel is actually a lot more fun than expected. Not only is the animation witty and sometimes even exhilarating, but there are some solid messages in the story. On the other hand, there's also the continuing problem of making movies in which the central characters are inanimate objects with cute faces drawn on them. But never mind: see the movies, buy the toys, keep the kids happy!

After the globe-hopping race in 2013's Planes, the new champ Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook) sees his new celebrity career grounded when he develops a problem in his gearbox. He can still fly, but the torque required for racing stunts could do him in. So he decides to retrain as an aerial firefighter to help his local airfield maintain its certification in time for the annual Corn Festival. In training, he is mentored by veteran chopper Blade (Ed Harris), working alongside his starstruck fan Dipper (Julie Bowen), the noble Windlifter (Wes Studi), the sassy Dynamite (Regina King) and the genius mechanic Maru (Curtis Armstrong). But a raging wildfire is threatening the nearby Fusel Lodge, and the local park superintendent (John Michael Higgins) doesn't want to shut it down with so many stars as guests.

The best touch here is to make Dusty utterly full of himself, never listening to any advice before charging in unprepared for the next challenge. It's predictable and underdeveloped, but it makes this chirpy crop-duster far more interesting, and adds some unexpected diversions in a plot that otherwise heads exactly where it has to go. Meanwhile, the screenwriters pack the dialog with witty puns and some snappy verbal and visual gags that allow the actors to give their vehicles a bit of personality, even if some of this is merely ethnic stereotyping or simplistic hero/villain morality.

A Haunted House 2 Trailer


Malcolm miraculously survives after his home and girlfriend Kisha were terrorised incessantly by a violent spirit who possessed Kisha and forced him to go to extreme lengths to exorcise her. Now, he's starting over after meeting a blonde young mother but he can't help but feel a little nervous about finding a new home. When they eventually do find a place they could live, they are no sooner on the threshold than the same weird things start happening all over again. Desperate and hysterical once more, he seeks help again from Father Doug who is firmly against coming into contact with anything paranormal ever again. Meanwhile, a still possessed Kisha returns to find Malcolm - and the last thing she wants to do is kiss and make up.

A Haunted House Review


OK

Yet another spoof from Wayans and Alvarez, this movie isn't nearly as bad as it could have been (they also produced the resolutely unfunny Scary Movie 2 and Dance Flick). There's the germ of a clever idea here, mainly satirising the Paranormal Activity series in the context of a new relationship. But of course, they can't resist resorting to random pastiche and silly gross-out jokes instead of actually clever comedy.

Wayans plays Malcolm, a cheeky guy who is far too thrilled that his girlfriend Kisha (Atkins) is moving in with him. She's a little more reticent about it all, especially because she thinks there's a ghost creeping around the house. So Malcolm installs a security camera system, secretly hoping to videotape their sex life. As the paranormal shenanigans increase, their friends (Ubach and Daly) introduce them to a psychic (Swardson) and then a priest (Cedric). And it turns out that Kisha has a history with evil spirits.

Filmmaker Tiddes plays merrily with the found footage genre, shooting everything as if through a video camera, webcam or CCTV, while indulging in the format's voyeuristic possibilities. This gives the premise, of a couple moving in together, a smart kick. So it's very frustrating when some genuinely amusing scenes are interrupted for cheap toilet gags and only weakly comical set pieces. After setting things up, the screenwriters just get lazy and stop bothering to make scenes funny or engaging at all.

Planes - Sneak Peek


Dusty is a super swift cropduster whose horsepower would be a force to be reckoned with for many aircrafts were he to compete with them for speed. However, there's just one problem; Dusty is terrified of heights. Cropdusting allows him to skim the ground as he flies so he never has to face to fears. But his dreams of contending at the legendary aviation races means he is desperate to reach the clouds and, with the help of his best friend Skipper - a former Navy plane - he looks set to finally conquer his anxieties. Alongside his tank truck coach Chug, he prepares for the flight of his life as he tackles the likes of the Great White North star Rochelle, the legendary Bulldog and the egotistical Ripslinger for a place among the worldwide aviation champions.

Lightning McQueen's Aeroplane Incarnation Dusty Crophopper To Hit Theatres In 'Planes' (Pictures And Trailer)


Dane Cook Stacy Keach Brad Garrett Cedric The Entertainer John Cleese Roger Craig Smith John Lasseter White Zombie Disney

Disney's Planes poster

Here is your first taster of the upcoming 'Cars' spin-off 'Planes'; an equally endearing animated movie about determination and achieving your dreams set to hit screens on August 16th 2013.

DisneyToon Studios brings us this fantastic new interpretation of the Pixar animated 2006 'Cars' movie and it's 2011 sequel 'Cars 2'. The teaser trailer gives away little about the plot, but introduces our soon-to-be favourite animated character of the year with the pounding drums of 'More Human Than Human' by heavy metal band White Zombie. 'Planes' has been directed by Klay Hall of 'King of the Hill', who is a huge aviation enthusiast - and with that you can guarantee not only rib-cracking humour, but remarkable accuracy. We see Dusty, a nervous cropdusting aircraft with a phobia of heights and the voice of Dane Cook, take on some of the biggest plane racing champions in the world as he vows to conquer his fears and fulfil his dream as a successful air racer despite formidable competition. Beside him are his friends Skipper, an old Navy Corsair voiced by Stacy Keach, and Chug, a fuel tanker who doesn't for a second doubt Dusty's capabilities and is played by Brad Garrett

Planes - Teaser Trailer


Dusty may be a super speedy cropdusting aircraft but there's a reason why he spends his days skimming fields; he is terrified of flying. Nonetheless he is determined to conquer his phobia of heights and fulfil his dream of competing in the famous aviation races and with the help of his devoted friend Skipper, an introverted former Navy warplane, and a variety of supporters including his coach, tank truck Chug, he has all he needs to become a formidable racer like the Great White North star Rochelle, the legendary Bulldog and the highly arrogant but nevertheless impressive Ripslinger. Dusty knows that he must outstrip the cheating Ripslinger if he has any chance of becoming a worldwide champion, but with his sabotaging cohorts at his side, the challenge seems impossible.

Cedric The Entertainer Replaces Meredith Vieira On ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’


Cedric The Entertainer Meredith Vieira Steve Harvey

Cedric The Entertainer is the new host of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, and will replace Meredith Vieira in the fall. Cedric, who also stars in TV Land sitcom ‘The Soul Man’ was part of the famous Kings Of Comedy tour with Steve Harvey, D.L Hughley and the late Bernie Mac.

“I’m truly looking forward to hosting ‘Millionaire,’ ” Cedric said in a statement. “The show is a modern-day game show giant, and the team at Disney-ABC has been great at putting the right elements together over 11 seasons. I’m excited to entertain all those who watch and play as season 12 launches … It’s going to be a good time every day!” The show, which began in 1999 with original host Regis Philbin, now airs at 10am weekdays on the WFTV-Channel 9. Viera has hosted the syndicated version fo the show since its debut in 2002, winning two Daytime Emmys for her hosting.

Hiring Cedric The Entertainer appears to be the show’s way of clawing back viewers, after losing some 10% from last year. It now pulls in around 3.2 million, less than half the audience of the rebounding Family Feud, hosted by Cedric’s old pal Steve Harvey. Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! Draw 11 million and 9.6 million respectively, though still take up early-evening slots.
