Trailer: IFC Films' A BALLERINA'S TALE (Sundance Selects)

A documentary about ballet isn't necessarily something I'd normally feature here on the site, but with both of my girls having wrapped their first run with ballet in the spring - and starting a year-long run of classes this Saturday - my eyes are more open to it (and yes, I did see BLACK SWAN in the theater). IFC Films sent over the trailer for their Sundance Selects release, A BALLERINA'S TALE, the story of Misty Copeland, the first African-American dancer in the American Ballet Theater. The film by Nelson George arrives in theaters and on VOD October 14, 2015. Take a look...


Sam Smith is an Agent of SPECTRE... He Has to Be

Sam Smith must be working for Ernst Stavro Blofeld. There's no other way to explain him being named the voice behind the new JAMES BOND Theme, aside from him truly being an agent of evil. And don't get me wrong - I love evil, but I don't like whiny evil. This is just my way of rationalizing that one of my most disliked musical artists will now sing the opening words of SPECTRE, the latest installment of one of my favorite film series'.  While I'm sure the multiple GRAMMY-winning Mr. Smith is a fine lad, his music is an unexplainable annoyance for me, one I can only hope is made better by some miracle on September 25th when "Writing's On The Wall" is released for download. Perhaps the song will be excellent and all will be well, but for this listener, Smith's global hit, IN THE LONELY HOUR was unlistenable, whiny garbage.


Get Ready for Action: The Steven Seagal ABSOLUTION Sweepstakes is Here!

When it comes to action movies - especially the ones I grew up on - certain actors always come to mind, and one of those cinematic badasses is STEVEN SEAGAL. Yes, many hours were spent by yours truly studying the performances of Seagal through VHS tapes rented from long-gone video stores back in the day, and while times have changed, he's still fighting on-screen, and his latest effort is ABSOLUTION - out this week on DVD from Lionsgate (get it here). To celebrate the release, Entertainment Marketing Group has partnered with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and a few other action-packed websites to serve-up the Steven Seagal ABSOLUTION Sweepstakes - a giveaway in which one (1) Grand Prize Winner will score some Stamina X Workout Equipment and a copy of the film - and twenty (20!) runners-up will receive ABSOLUTION on DVD!

Watch - Netflix Unleashes the WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: FIRST DAY OF CAMP Trailer...

#StreamTeamWhen it comes to the Netflix Original Series WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: FIRST DAY OF CAMP, the cast is just so huge, I can't help but wonder how come I'm not in this thing? Seriously (or not), the cast is immense, and if the 8-episode mini-series (which debuts July 31st on Netflix) is anything like it's just-released trailer, the laughs will be immense as well. The sequel to the 2001 cult film features Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, ANT-MAN himself - Paul Rudd (look for my interview with him coming soon), Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter, along with new characters played by Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, John Slattery, and more. Check out the preview below, but be warned - this is solely For Grownups!
