The Homesman Trailer


George Briggs is a claim jumper who has only ever known a dishonest life. When he finds himself in serious trouble (sat astride an impatient horse with his hands bound behind his back and a noose around his neck tied to a branch), he starts to think this could finally be the end for him. That is until he is found by a lone woman with a wagon named Mary Bee Cuddy who agrees to free him from his plight in exchange for a favour. Living alone, she is struggling to carry out an important personal mission; she wants to take three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa now that their husbands can now longer cope with them. Thus, she asks Briggs to help her on the dangerous five week journey and, despite his serious reservations, he agrees to act as her aide and protector against the brutalities they may face along the way.

A Million Ways To Die In The West Review


Very Good

After the success of Ted, Seth MacFarlane gives himself his first leading-man role in this hilarious but overlong comedy-Western. The film is clearly a passion project, as it reveals MacFarlane's love of the genre with knowing jokes in between the usual gross-out humour. But it also feels stretched rather thin, and would feel even funnier with a zippier pace and tighter story.

In 1882 Arizona almost anything can kill you. Albert (MacFarlane) is a sheep farmer who has very little respect in his tiny frontier town. His girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) has just dumped him and taken up with smug Moustachery manager Foy (Neal Patrick Harris). And his best pal Edward (Giovanni Ribisi) has issues of his own, determined to wait until marriage to have sex with his fiancee, the town's most popular prostitute Ruth (Sarah Silverman). Then a stranger rides in: Anna (Charlize Theron) is trapped in a marriage to the local outlaw Clinch (Liam Neeson) and needs a place to hide. And in Albert she finds the kind of nice guy she thought didn't actually exist in the West.

MacFarlane's most clever decision was to surround himself with terrific actors who can effortlessly play both comedy and drama. As a result he just about gets away with a performance that doesn't stretch him at all. Theron is especially good, bringing an offhanded humour to her scenes that grounds the entire film. She may roll her eyes at the bad jokes while laughing openly at the good ones, but she stays firmly in character, which makes her scenes with MacFarlane and Neeson crackle with all kinds of romantic energy.

A Million Ways To Die In The West - Clip


Albert is a rather introverted sheep farmer who tries at all costs to avoid confrontation with the occasional gun-toting outlaw who may pass through the small Arizona town in which he lives. His reluctance to engage in any kind of combat has cost him his girlfriend, but on the upside, he's still alive - which is more than can be said for a large percentage of townspeople. There is danger is every turn and Albert is feeling a little low in confidence - that is, until the arrival of the town's feisty new resident Anna. She wants to show him how to aim and fire a loaded pistol and, generally, how to win a fight, which is just as well because one man is on his way over with the intention of dominating the town with his formidable reputation. Unfortunately for Albert, he's Anna's estranged husband and, with Albert having spent so much time with her, it is starting to look like he's finally run out of luck.

A Million Ways To Die In The West - Greenband Trailer And TV Spot


Albert is one of the more lucky men living in his doomed Arizona town, mainly because he hasn't yet died; quite a feat for a sheep farmer who can't fire a gun in a time where outlaws rule the West. After one failed confrontation on his part, he is promptly dumped by his girlfriend, but this doesn't prove to be a bad thing when an extremely attractive and feisty new resident shows up in the town. Albert agrees to show her around her new neighbourhood, while she decides to help him man-up and learn how to gun fight properly. It's just as well because he soon finds himself facing mortal peril at the arrival of her ruthless outlaw husband - and he's not the only one who'd rather avoid confrontation this time. With his new friend's encouragement, however, he tries to step-up and take charge of the situation - let's just hope his luck hasn't run out by now.

Following the success of his live action directorial debut 'Ted', 'Family Guy' creator Seth Macfarlane is back with western comedy 'A Million Ways To Die In The West' in which he stars, directs and co-wrote with Alec Sulkin an d Wellesley Wild ('Dads ', 'Ted', 'Family Guy'). The movie is set to be released in the UK on June 6th 2014.

A Million Ways To Die In The West - Redband Trailer


Albert is a sheep farmer who, unlike most men in his small Arizona town, is unable to handle a gun and tries to avoid confrontation at every opportunity. He gets dumped by his girlfriend for his spinelessness - but as a passive individual, he's still one of the luckiest guys in his neighbourhood having so far avoided death. This is a town where the residents are constantly in danger at every corner, but Albert finds his inner strength at the arrival of an attractive and feisty new resident who is willing to death him how to fire a pistol and stand up to his adversaries. And it's just as well when a dangerous outlaw shows up and starts to try and run the town, revealing that he is the husband of Albert's new female friend. Could his luck be up this time?

'8 Mile' Cast Reunite And Pay Homage To Brittany Murphy In Interview


Brittany Murphy Eminem Anthony Mackie Mekhi Phifer Evan Jones Omar Benson Miller

Ten years after the release of Eminem's '8 Mile', the cast reunited, and took time to pay tribute to the late Brittany Murphy.

In the attached interview, the cast talk about the 2002 movie, and lovingly remember Murphy who played the role of Eminem's lover.

In the interview, Eminem speaks about Brittany, saying: "Brittany was a good person, a super-nice girl. She was very down-to-earth; she'd talk to anybody."

Glory Road Review


Weak
In 1966, color-blind college basketball coach Don Haskins (Josh Lucas) led Texas Western's mixed-race team to the NCAA championship game where they faced Adolph Rupp's battle-tested Kentucky Wildcats. Haskins had rotated his handpicked squad of streetballers into and out of the active lineup all season, but consciously started five African American players in the finals as a statement that college basketball's racial balance - like that of our civil rights-minded country - was shifting.

It's a revolutionary story, though one told with overbearingly conventional techniques by Glory Road director James Gartner. The first-time filmmaker hardly deserves all the blame. His strings are being pulled by pandering producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who wouldn't know subtle if it sat on his shoulders.

Funeral In Berlin Review


Good
Michael Caine starred as British spy Harry Palmer in five movies (three in the 1960s and two in 1995 -- try figuring that one out), most of which were based on Len Deighton's novels. Funeral in Berlin is the follow-up to The Ipcress File, a well-received spy thriller and the only one of the series anyone has ever seen.

Palmer is a reluctant agent, serving as a spy in lieu of spending time behind bars for some unknown crime. This time out, he's sent to East Berlin (remember when there was an East Berlin?) to retrieve a defecting Russian general, by devising a phony funeral. As a former crook, Palmer is unconventional. He talks back to his bosses, he doublecrosses his partners, and he drinks Lowenbrau instead of martinis.

Mr 3000 Review


Good

Bernie Mac is the kind of comedic actor who can genuinely envelop himself in a character while still being his own distinctively hilarious self. He is not a one-note caricature clown like Jack Black, Rob Schneider, Chris Kattan, David Spade, Mike Myers or Martin Lawrence.

In "Mr. 3000," he proves it by laying down a lot of subtle psychological nuance as egotistical Milwaukee Brewers superstar Stan Ross, a talented slugger who quit baseball and left his playoff-bound team in a lurch the moment he hit the 3000th run he thought would guarantee him a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

But nine years later he's still never gotten close to being voted into Cooperstown because, well, he hacked off virtually everybody on his way up. And what's worse, he's recently been stripped of three runs awarded him in error, leaving the out-of-shape 47-year-old short of the milestone he's milked as his legacy since retirement. Ross's "Mr. 3000" sports bar anchors an entire "Mr. 3000"-themed strip mall, so he'll be damned if being over the hill athletically is going to keep him from rejoining the team (which he calls "a bunch of Little Leaguers") to earn back those three hits.
