My 5 Favorite Christmas Films

In: Behind The Cast, Movies, Tyrell

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

Today is Christmas Eve and I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the holidays. This year I won’t be enjoying it with my family but instead, partaking in the Christmas festivities with Patrick and his family: a first for us. Last year we spent time with my family back in Manitoba so we thought it only be fair that we both head up to Northern BC this time around.

Even though I spending Christmas with a new family and making new traditions, it doesn’t stop me from keeping a few old ones from yesteryear alive. In the spirit of that, I’d thought I’d share with you five of my favorite Christmas movies that I enjoy watching over the holiday break.

A few of these films have a very special meaning to me and bring back childhood memories while others just literally bring out the kid in me. In fact, Christmas day as a whole sees me acting like a grown-up, five-year-old. Enjoy my list of holiday movies below and please, share your favorites and family traditions in the comment section below. Merry Christmas!

I’m sure by now you’ve heard about Duck Dynasty-gate. For those who haven’t, here’s a quick gist. The patriarch of the family made homophobic remarks during an interview with GQ. Subsequently, A&E announced it was benching Phil Robertson from the show. The family then responded by standing with Phil and vowed not to film anymore. As of yet the parties are at a standstill. Will the show continue with or without Phil? Will legal action take place? Will another network step in to take Duck Dynasty from A&E? Given that the show is the highest-rated non-scripted reality cable series ever, major money is on the line. I can’t wait to see how the rest of this plays out.

With this saga playing out, a few interesting tidbits have surfaced. By far, the most entertaining and gayest involves the man who produces the hit reality show. Scott Gurney who owns Gurney Productions was once a struggling actor who appeared on Baywatch and Married With Children. One of his more memorable roles was playing a gay-for-pay porn actor in the indie flick, The Fluffer. I wonder if Phil Robertson knew about this.

The 2001 film, set in the world of adult entertainment, centers around three characters: Johnny Rebel (Gurney), a straight man who has become a star in the world of gay porn; Johnny’s stripper girlfriend Babylon (Roxanne Day); and Sean (Michael Cunio), a naive young man in love with Johnny, who ends up becoming Johnny’s “fluffer”. For those too young to remember the film, check out a couple of clips below.

If a professional hockey player can become a world-caliber figure skater in a matter of months, why can’t cricket players from India play in Major League Baseball. After all, it is the movies. However, the latter is actually a true story and the basis for Disney’s upcoming film, Million Dollar Arm, starring Jon Hamm as sports agent J.B. Berstein.

Berstein is inspired to stage a reality sports competition in India in an attempt to discover cricket players who might have major-league worthy fastballs. Through the contest, Bernstein enlists Rinku Singh (Suraj Sharma) and Dinesh Patel (Madhur Mittal) and brings them to the United States to train with baseball coach Tom House (Bill Paxton), with the intent of ultimately having the cricketers become contracted by a Major League Baseball team. During their stay, Singh and Patel adapt to an American lifestyle while under the care of Bernstein, who is simultaneously shaping his own personal life. Eventually Singh and Patel both get signed by the Pittsburgh Pirates. In other words, the perfect live action rags-to-riches Disney tale.

Lake Bell and Alan Arkin also co-star in the film. Directed by Craig Gillespie, Million Dollar Arm hits theaters May 16, 2014. Check out the trailer below. I have to admit, I got sucked in and looking forward to checking it out.

Anna Paquin Gets Cut From X-Men: Days Of Future Past

With so many cast members returning from both franchises, I had a feeling this was going to happen. Apparently, it’s an embarrassment of riches for Bryan Singer. The X-Men: Days of Future Past director is currently in the editing process and Anna Paquin’s part has sadly made it to the cutting room floor.

Singer reveals to Entertainment Weekly that a rescue sequence featuring Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Rogue (Paquin), and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) has been cut from the final version of the film. During the True Blood actress’ week-long stint filming, this was her only scene in the movie.

Johnny Depp Is Omnipresent In Transcendence Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies
transcendence-movie-trailer

I can’t remember the last Johnny Depp film I saw where he wasn’t wearing a disguise. With films like Pirates, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger and Alice in Wonderland, he’s usually so made up, I forgot how naturally handsome he is. Of course being a Depp movie, midway through he’s downloaded to a computer and once again altered. The 50-year-old plays an artificial intelligence researcher whose memories and human emotions have been downloaded to a computer.

Transcendence marks long-time cinematographer Wally Pfister’s directorial debut. Pfister is best known for his work with Christopher Nolan including The Dark Knight and Inception. Nolan returns the favor this time by producing his buddy’s film. Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy, and Paul Bettany round out the cast. The science fiction thriller is set to be released in theaters on April 18, 2014. Check out the first trailer below. It looks really good. I get a Matrix meets Inception vibe.

Movie Synopsis

Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.

Damsel in distress. PFFFT!!! That’s so passé. Even though she’s playing an ancient goddess, Gaia Weiss proves she’s a modern-day woman. She can play games boys play, and in this particular case, even better.

During some downtime on set, Kellan Lutz (Hercules) and Liam Garrigan (Iphicles) pass the time by throwing a spear. Wanting to join in on the fun, Weiss (Hebe) asks Lutz for a little tutorial. After a few seconds, she takes a stab at it. Even while wearing a long dress, girlfriend throws it further than her male co-stars. Someone just got schooled.

As much as I’d like to believe this is true, the skeptic in me thinks this is a marketing ploy. I smell a Jimmy-Kimmel-epic-twerking-video stunt here. Watch the clip below and decide for yourself if Gaia is the real deal or simply clever publicity on the studios’s behalf.

cavemen-movie-trailer

It’s a tale as old as time. Boy is a male slut. Boy’s best friend is a gorgeous woman. Boy finally realizes he’s in love with said best friend when she begins dating someone else. Without seeing the movie, it’s pretty safe to assume boy and best friend live happily ever after.

Cavemen is an upcoming romantic comedy starring Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Camilla Belle (When A Stranger Calls), Chad Michael Murray (One Tree Hill), Kenny Wormald (Footloose), Dayo Okenyi (The Hunger Games), and Skylar‘s Pitch Perfect co-star Alexis Knapp. It hits theaters and on demand on February 7, 2014. Check out the trailer below which features a shirtless Skylar. Dude is a cute cub in the making. Woof on the hairy chest.

Official Synopsis

Follows LA playboy Dean (Skylar Astin) who is fed up with one-night-stands and empty relationships and realizes that he wants something more out of life than just a party. With a little inspiration from his nine-year-old nephew and his best friend Tess (Camilla Belle), Dean decides to try his hand at finding true love for the first time – which proves to be much more difficult than he thought in modern-day Los Angeles.
