‘The Lone Ranger’ Review

I loved 'Rango,' the last time Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski offered up a madcap spin on the Western. I basically enjoyed 'John Carter,' last year's Western-infused would-be space epic, which, not coincidentally, was the last time Walt Disney stock holders had to reach for a shaker of Tums.

However, 'The Lone Ranger,' this new spazzed-out Western from Depp, Verbinski and Disney, takes unusual and unlikely measures to ensure that audiences have a miserable time. There are momentary flashes of amusement, but it is jumbled, tone-deaf and uninteresting. If I wanted to be kind I'd call it dull and ephemeral, but there are long stretches that seem to strive to be annoying - almost anti-entertainment. The only thing 'The Lone Ranger' has going for it is a long life as to go-to description how not to make a blockbusters movie - this generation's 'Last Action Hero.'

Samuel L. Jackson on the Hilarious Origins of His Purple Lightsaber in ‘Star Wars’

For decades, 'Star Wars' fans were secure in the knowledge that lightsabers came in only three colors: red for evil, green for good and blue for Obi-Wan Kenobi. But then, when the new trilogy of prequels was released between 1999 and 2005, Samuel L. Jackson joined the franchise as Jedi warrior Mace Windu and broke the rules by sporting a purple weapon. So how did it happen?

‘Despicable Me 2′ Review

I am not a monster. I want to be very clear and upfront about this. Yes, those little squibbling yellow marshmallows called “minions” in 'Despicable Me' and 'Despicable Me 2' are adorable. I don't care how much of a tough guy you think you are, when these little buggers are vrooming about the screen and warbling and wobbling and making exaggerated facial expressions; it is biologically impossible for a human being not to smile. They're wonderful and the design team that creates them (and the scientists who code the array of imaging rendering computers) should all continue to take a bow. With this qualifier out of the way, allow me to warn anyone over the age of 10 or 11 that 'Despicable Me 2' stinks.

‘Hellboy 3′ Might Still Happen After All

 

Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman have been busy doing press for 'Pacific Rim,' but there's another film the two are still talking about: 'Hellboy 3.' And if Perlman has his way, the third film in the franchise might still happen with a little help from Legendary Pictures, who co-produced 'Pacific Rim' with Warner Bros.

Mario’s Weekend Movie Roundup [VIDEO]

 

The summer movie season is in full swing this weekend with a couple of new movies. If you saw "Olympus Has Fallen" back in March, then you are going to love "White House Down" another drama/action flick that stars Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum. Also, Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy star in an action/comedy "The Heat" directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids). Although I want to see them both "White House Down" is my choice this weekend.

‘White House Down’ Review

'White House Down' has the disadvantage of being the second 'Die Hard'-in-the-White-House movie of 2013 after 'Olympus Has Fallen,' and the advantage of being superior to its predecessor in every conceivable way. It's better directed, better written, and better acted. The action is better, with more impressive special effects; the production design is better, with a much more convincing replica of the White House; the camerawork is better; with clear, lucid images. Where 'Olympus Has Fallen' was grim and stern, 'White House Down' actually embraces the silliness of its premise. It's more exciting and more faithful to the 'Die Hard' formula. This is still basically a shameless ripoff popcorn movie, but it's a shameless ripoff popcorn movie popped to near-perfection.

Movie in The Works About The Life of Country Singer ‘George Jones’

I loved it several years ago when they made the movie "Walk The Line" about the Man in Black, Johnny Cash played by actor Joaquin Phoenix back in 2005. Now it looks as though another country music legend George Jones will have a movie made about his life and career.
