‘Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3′ Review (PS4)

28 May 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

First person shooters. Yeah, lets just say that I don’t get along with modern-day Fps games. Give me Doom or its sequels, any games from the Unreal or Quake franchises. Hell, even the likes of Hexen and Duke Nukem 3D. Now Those are first person shooters I an get behind. But Call of Duty and its ilk? Not my cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong though – I still play Fps games, but mainly those that allow for more stealthy combat. Like sniper-style Fps games. Like the Sniper Ghost Warrior series… The latest of which is Sniper Ghost Warrior 3

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 sees you take the role of an American sniper named Jonathan North, who is dropped into enemy territory in northern Georgia, nearby Russian borders – to not only help the resistance but also discover what has happened to Jonathan’s brother, Robert.

Cannes 2017: You Were Never Really Here Review

28 May 2017 1:51 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jo-Ann Titmarsh

We had to wait until the bitter end for Lynne Ramsay’s new film – the last in competition in Cannes and surely a hot contender for the Palme d’Or – and it was certainly worth the wait.

Based on Jonathan Ames’ eponymous novella, the film tells the story of Joe (Joaquin Phoenix), an army vet with some serious issues. If you thought Chris Kyle in American Sniper had Ptsd problems, wait until you see this guy. At first Joe is appears to be some kind of paedophile serial killer for the film opens on him lying on a hotel with a plastic bag over his head. A girl’s jewellery and a bloody hammer are his companions. We are also given a brief glimpse into Joe’s troubled childhood, but the details remain undisclosed for now. And when he leaves Cincinatti for home in New York, the »

Clint Eastwood Is Returning to Acting

21 May 2017 3:01 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Clint Eastwood is one of those rare Hollywood stars who is a legend both in front of and behind the camera. While he's best known to most audiences as an actor, with decades of iconic performances, but he has also established himself as one of our finest filmmakers as well. In recent years, the multi-hyphenate has focused his energies more on filmmaking and less in acting, with his last on screen performance coming in his 2012 baseball movie entitled Trouble With the Curve, where he played an aging baseball scout. During an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, the Hollywood icon suggested that he eventually will make his return to acting.

Variety attended a master class being put on by the actor-filmmaker at the Cannes Film Festival, where he discussed a variety of topics. The filmmaker stated that he does miss performing "once in a while but not often," while hinting »

Cannes: Clint Eastwood Says ‘We’ve Lost Our Sense of Humor’

21 May 2017 9:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Clint Eastwood told a rapturous Cannes audience on Sunday that he will return to acting in front of the camera. Eastwood was giving a master class at the Cannes Film Festival and received a three-minute ovation from those able to get in to the packed auditorium, in a crowd that included Warner Bros. boss Kevin Tsujihara.

The star notably did not address the political situation in the U.S., focusing on his long career in front of and behind the camera. He did say that his first “Dirty Harry” movie was considered politically incorrect, and was the start of an ongoing era of political correctness. “We’re killing ourselves by doing that, we’ve lost our sense of humor,” he said.

Having mostly eschewed acting for directing in recent years, Eastwood’s last on-screen performance was in 2012’s “The Trouble With the Curve.” He said he missed performing “once in a while but not often,” but »

Brett Ratner in Cannes: 'Television is obviously the future'

19 May 2017 2:37 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Us producer and director delivered a keynote at the festival today.

In his keynote address at the Winston Baker Film Financing Forum today (May 19), an ebullient Brett Ratner revealed just how he rescued Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscar winner The Revenant when it went over budget; why he will soon be returning to directing; his plans to enter the TV business in a major way; and why he thinks Vr is ideal for porn.

Ratner isn’t just a filmmaker whose own movies have grossed over $2bn. He’s also a prolific producer and film financier - and a co-founder of RatPac Entertainment together with Australian businessman James Packer.

“Nobody really in Hollywood can figure out how I did this. They don’t understand,” Rattner said of his unlikely metamorphosis from director into “mogul” (a description he hates). His friend and Rush Hour star Jackie Chan calls him “the luckiest motherfucker in the world”.

Viggo Mortensen to star in thriller 'Unabomb'

15 May 2017 2:53 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Im Global fully financing and introducing to Cannes buyers.

Two-time Oscar nominee Viggo Mortensen will star in the thriller Unabomb for The Trouble With The Curve director Robert Lorenz.

Im Global is fully financing the project and lining up additional cast for a January 2018 production start.

Lorenz is producing Unabomb with Michele Weisler and Im Global’s president of feature film production Greg Shapiro.

Unabomb centres on one of the largest manhunts in history as FBI agent Jim Freeman, played by Mortensen, takes on the unsolved case of the Unabomber, who terrorised Americans with 16 bombings over the course of two decades.

Freeman and his unconventional team travel the country piecing together a profile of the infamous hooded suspect.

However the closer they get to narrowing down the terrorist’s identity, the more deadly and personal the attacks become. Randy Brown adapted the screenplay from the book Unabomber by Jim Freeman, Terry Turchie and Donald »

New War Machine Trailer Exposes The Absurdity Of The War On Terror

12 May 2017 1:07 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Movies about modern military conflicts, whether action, drama, or comedy are tough nuts to crack. For every epic war film like Black Hawk Down, American Sniper, or Zero Dark Thirty there are clunkers like Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Jarhead, or The Delta Force. Part of the problem, speaking as an Army veteran, is that it's very hard to capture the nuances and idiosyncrasies of the military and how our troops interact on-duty/off-duty.

Each branch of the military is a culture unto itself, heavy with jargon, rivalries, and living conditions that are difficult to translate on-screen and generally opaque to the general public. Try explaining the mutual dislike between the Army and the Marines to someone who's never served, it's one of those "you'd have to be there" kind of things to explain.

Military comedies, are perhaps the most challenging sub-genre to get right. »

Montclair Review: ‘Megan Leavey’ is an Ambitious, Restrained War Drama

10 May 2017 5:34 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Side-stepping the more explicit aspects of war, the biopic Megan Leavey focuses on the story of a woman who finds a higher calling, though not of a religious variety. A wild child from a broken Rockland County home, she ultimately finds the kind of camaraderie she’d been missing in her upbringing through a canine. Played masterfully by Kate Mara, Leavey is an aimless young woman who leaves a dead-end daycare job, deadbeat mom Jackie (Edie Falco), and life behind to join the Marines. Despite the discipline instilled, she still finds ways of returning to her old self, including one drunken night in which public urination lands her a reassignment to the K9 unit under the command of Gunny Martin (Common), the kind of tough love commander who tells it like it is while providing mentorship to those that ask.

After some time in the kennel, Leavey aspires to work »

Bradley Cooper Can't Stop Laughing on The Ellen Show, and Now Neither Can We

5 May 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Bradley Cooper technically made his first postbaby appearance at the beginning of April when he stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to try and put an end to the host's selfie war with a teenager. But on Friday, he actually sat down in a chair with Ellen to talk about a handful of random things, and we love it so much. Bradley, who welcomed his first child, daughter Lea, with girlfriend Irina Shayk at the end of March, was a barrel of laughs when he talked about everything from being frequently mistaken for Zach Galifianakis to admitting that he googles himself in his free time. But the funniest part of all came when Ellen brought up that infamous scene with a fake baby in American Sniper. "I know you don't want to talk about the baby, but I knew you'd be a good father when I saw you in American Sniper, »

‘He’s Good with a Baby!’ Bradley Cooper Gets Kudos from Ellen DeGeneres in First Full TV Appearance Since Baby News

5 May 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bradley Cooper may be new to fatherhood, but Ellen DeGeneres says she’s known for years that the actor would be a great dad.

In a Friday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cooper doesn’t talk about being a father — but that doesn’t stop DeGeneres, 59, from gushing about his parenting skills.

“I knew you’d be a good father when I saw you in American Sniper,” DeGeneres says, referring to the 2014 movie in which Cooper, 42, portrayed real-life Navy Seal Chris Kyle. “He’s so good with a baby.”

Cooper lets out a laugh — “I can’t believe you. »
