The Pope is the formidable nickname given to Frank Silva; a businessman who runs a multi-million dollar empire of gambling with his glamorous dockside casino. Luke Vaughn works as a card dealer at Pope's casino, and in a desperate bid to raise 300,000 dollars to pay for his sick daughter's medical treatment, he turns to his boss for help. Predictably, Pope is less than pleased about being asked for money and throws Vaughn out, but little does he know that there's another worker who'll stop at nothing to get a share of the riches. Cox convinces Vaughn to rob the place and they make off with 3 million dollars after a messy shoot-out. However, their plans go slightly wrong at the getaway stage, forcing them to take over a passing bus and holding the passengers hostage. Now, as well as The Pope's savage cohorts on their tail including the bloodthirsty Dog, they have a SWAT team led by no-nonsense female Officer Bajos after them and escape seems futile.

Don Piper is a baptist minister who has everything to live for; a wonderful wife and three kids, and a promising career; but his life is about to change forever during a trip back home from Texas. In a horrific road accident which saw a truck hit his car, he sustains apparently fatal injuries and is pronounced dead immediately by first responders. Hoping for a miracle, a fellow pastor on the scene prays for him, and to his joyous surprise, realises that Piper has come back to them. He wakes up critically injured, but that's the least of it; he also has a remarkable story to tell of being deceased for 90 minutes. As he slipped away, he claims he caught a glimpse of heaven, and that's something he finds incredibly difficult to let go upon regaining consciousness. He's ready to die, but his friends and family are not going to let that happen. Through the power of prayer, he is brought forth from the brink of death once again.

For a film about early onset Alzheimer's, this is a remarkably wry, honest and even hopeful drama, anchored by another staggeringly sensitive performance by Julianne Moore. Writing-directing team Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland are known for their observant depictions of human interaction (see Quinceañera), and they fill the screen with sharp dialogue and earthy emotions that make this much more than another movie about a disease. Instead, it's about how people can transcend what life throws at them, even if it knocks them down.
Moore stars as Alice, a New York linguistics professor who has just turned 50 when she starts noticing that she's forgetting words and getting lost. Her doctor gives her the tough diagnosis, and she uses her dry wit and sharp intellect to face the future with her steady husband John (Alec Baldwin) and their three grown children: married and pregnant Anna (Kate Bosworth), aspiring actress Lydia (Kristen Stewart) and free-spirit Tom (Hunter Parrish). The hardest thing to learn is that the disease is familial, and that she has passed it to at least one of her children. So while she can, Alice makes a contingency plan for the future as she watches her family members each react in a different way.
No, this isn't a light and breezy movie. But the filmmakers balance the moments of gut-wrenching emotion with smart humour ("Sorry, I forgot - I have Alzheimer's!") and bracing honesty ("I wish I had cancer!"). Moore is uncannily raw in the role, subtly revealing Alice's transformation in ways we barely notice until we're reminded what she used to be like. Even more powerful is her own awareness of what's happening. Opposite her, Baldwin has terrific camaraderie and an unexpected warmth, while both Bosworth and Stewart get a chance to dig much deeper as actors than they usually do. And what makes the film special is the way Alice's interaction with each character is uniquely individualistic.

On the outside, Alice Howland appears to have an idyllic life. A beautiful family life with a husband and three older children, and a job that has provided her with such joy over the years. She's a linguistics professor, well respected for her knowledge of the world of language. However, soon she finds herself forgetting even the simplest of words and decides to get checked out by a doctor to see what might be wrong with her. On discovering that she has been diagnosed with Early-Onset Alzheimer's Disease, she finds herself struggling to deal with the idea of losing out on the rest of her career, being so highly respected in her field. She starts to drift further and further from her own identity, forgetting who she has become with the knowledge that it's only going to get worse.

Larry David proves, once again, why he's one of the world's best sports fans.
The Los Angeles Kings capitalized on the New York Rangers' hangover from an energy-sapping seven games series with Chicago by scoring a 3-2 win over their east-coast rivals in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The final few minutes were frantic and the Kings were unusually scrappy, though managed to hold on in a game that Rangers veteran Brad Richards knew was a missed opportunity.

"We had a chance to win," Richards told Sports Illustrated. "We had a great opportunity. Now we made it hard on ourselves."
It was a glamorous occasion for female celebrities at the Tiffany & Co 2014 Blue Book Gala held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. 'Homefront' actress Kate Bosworth arrived with her husband Michael Polish and stole the show in a gorgeous pale pink frock teamed with red lipstick and her blonde locks swept to the side.
'Avengers' star Samuel L. Jackson and 'Homefront' actress Kate Bosworth with husband Michael Polish were among the star-studded arrivals at the Museum Of The Moving Image's 28th Annual Salute in New York, which this year was honouring 'House Of Cards' actor Kevin Spacey.
With a powerhouse cast and an anaemic script, this violent revenge thriller never quite gets off the ground. It's watchable for the character detail, but resolutely refuses to make any logical sense as it charges through its corny plot. Fortunately the slick filmmaking and charismatic acting hold our attention, adding a hint of sophistication to the bluntly brutal story.
It's set in the Louisiana bayou, where former undercover agent Phil (Statham) is trying to have a quiet life with his young daughter (Vidovic). But the locals are wary of outsiders, and a schoolyard confrontation escalates into a feud between Phil and a resentful woman (Bosworth) who calls her gangster brother Gator (Franco) for help in getting even. Gator quickly discovers Phil's past, then enlists his trashy pal Sheryl (Ryder) to contact Phil's old enemies. But as these ruthless thugs descend on the bayou, they fail to take into consideration the fact that Phil has nearly super-human fighting skills.
There's plenty of possibility in this rather tired premise, but Stallone's boneheaded script never bothers to make things believable, skipping over key details and indulging in trite coincidences. Fleder manages to obscure this with his fluid, pacey direction, and the cast is unusually good for such a simplistic thriller. The charismatic Statham doesn't stretch himself much, occasionally attempting a bit of real acting in the father-daughter scenes (his romance with LeFevre's teacher is never developed). Bosworth and Ryder add some unpredictable edges to their stereotypical roles. And it's Franco who steals the film as an unusually thoughtful redneck thug. Although his moral quandary doesn't put off any of the nastiness.

The new trailer for the upcoming action promises a film with the potential to be a huge success
Homefront is a tense action thriller that wants to poke holes in the typical story of a rural town's collective hostility towards a new family. Based on the Chuck Logan novel of the same name, the film will introduce Logan's much-used character Phil Broker (Jason Statham) to the big screen for the first time and judging by the trailer alone, we should be in for a wild ride when the film is released later this year.
Things start off blissfully for Broker and his daughter
Broker is an ex-DEA agent (not a former Minnesota cop, as he is in the book) who moves out to a rural town in the south of the United States to begin a new life with his daughter, Maddie (Izabela Vidovic), following the death of his wife. At first, things seem to be as idyllic as Broker would have hoped, with horses to ride, lakes to swim in and a large house to call their own, however things soon take a turn for the worse when Broker's daughter fights back against the school bully.
