Dirty Grandpa red band full of a dirty grandpa

I'm going to take a stab at this one and say that Dirty Grandpa isn't going to be very good. When the basis for most of your comedy is Robert DeNiro cussing you've got some work to do. The new red band trailer does show that he'll be c...

Review: Grudge Match

Grudge Match is a movie based entirely around getting two old actors (Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro) from two of the greatest boxing movies ever made (Rocky and Raging Bull) back into the ring to punch each other. It really...

See Grudge Match early and free

Old people boxing? No it's not another Rocky movie, though Stallone is in this as well. It's Grudge Match, which sees not only Stallone returning to the ring, but Robert DeNiro as well. There's going to be a lot of wrinkles. At least this t...

Old guys in Vegas (the trailer for Last Vegas)

I know. I know. Just as you were thinking, "I wish The Hangover had been a movie about a bunch of older guys being old, but acting young," along comes Last Vegas and your wish is answered. It's pretty much exactly what we were al...

First trailer for Grudge Match settles all bar bets

Let's say you're drunk and your drunk nerd friend goes, "Hey, who'd win in a fight between Rocky from the Rocky movies and Jake La Motta from Raging Bull?" Assuming any of that comes out coherently, the two of you get into an argument and ...

See The Family early and free

Luc Benson directs Robert DeNiro as a gangster. You're in, right? Well, he's actually an ex-gangster and Michelle Pfieffer is there and there's a lot dark comedy going on. Oh, you're more in now? OK, then grab a pass to The Family for ...

American Hustle gets all up in the 70s in first trailer

David O. Russell is back and this time the movie looks a bit more interesting than his overrated Silver Linings Playbook. This is definitely the O. Russel that I recognize, with plenty of drama, style and personality crammed into a trailer...

Trailer: The Family

In Luc Besson's The Family, Robert DeNiro returns to one of his best forms - a mobster trying to stay out of trouble, and failing. The movie centers around DeNiro's character and his tough-as-nails family; his wife played by Michelle Pfeif...

Teaser Trailer: Last Vegas

I'll admit that I'm a sucker for "old men doing young things" movies desspite how bad most of them are. I sat through The Bucket List, Space Cowboys (but it was kind of good), Stand Up Guys, and I'm most likely going to see Last Vegas also...

De Niro and LaBeouf to star in Spy's Kid

No, no. Not Spy Kids, though that would be kind of awesome in a really horrible way, Spy's Kid. If the name didn't tip you off the film, which Paramount just announced will star Robert De Niro and Shia LeBeouf, is a spy movie about a father...

Flix for Short: Walt Disney's Taxi Driver

Once Upon A Time In America to premiere uncut at Cannes

Trailer: Being Flynn

Yea, you just saw that. It's Robert DeNiro in a role that doesn't look like a complete and total waste of his considerable talent. The film that may harbor that role is called Being Flynn and its based on author Nick Flynn's memoir, Anothe...

Teaser Trailer: Red Lights

This teaser is a little bit ridiculous. Remember that time when the teaser for The Hunger Games movie was like five seconds long? Yeah, well this is kinda like that. Except in this teaser for Red Lights, we get to catch a fleeting glimpse ...

Review: Little Fockers

Little Fockers is a terrible f*cking movie. Notice how I didn’t do a play on the word Focking? It’s because this movie doesn’t deserve its own lingo or puns. After Meet the Parents – which I remember enjoying – and Meet the Focke...

Uncharted movie rumors are utterly ridiculous

Alright, file this one strictly under "rumor," because if this happens a lot of people are going to be sad, but it's worth reporting just for the "WTF?" factor. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was a strong entry for early PS3 games and did well ...
