Cameron Crowe Apologizes For ‘Aloha’, Casting Emma Stone as a Native Hawaiian

Aloha may have opened to scathing reviews and poor box office, but the latest film from writer/director Cameron Crowe did touch a nerve. It just so happened to a nerve that no one ever wants to touch. Despite being set on Hawaii, the cast is chock-full of the whitest white people in Hollywood, including Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski and Alec Baldwin. That wouldn’t have been a problem if the only character with a distinctly Hawaiian background wasn’t played by the ludicrously pale Emma Stone. Yes, Stone was cast as a character named Allison Ng, so you can see why feathers were ruffled, especially since Hollywood already has a poor track record with racial representation in movies.

New ‘Pixels’ Trailer Pits Adam Sandler Against Video Game Aliens

It’s no secret that Pixels began its life as a short film, a special effects demo that showed off some inventive and amusing imagery that wasn’t required to have things like, you know, a plot or characters. So the feature version of Pixels had to find an excuse for classic arcade characters to invade Earth and that excuse was aliens. Who look like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong for some reason. And whose greatest opponent is Adam Sandler. Okay. The new trailer isn’t going to change your mind if that premise still sounds like nails on a chalkboard.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s ‘Southpaw’ Transformation Is Truly Astonishing

When actors transform for a role, we take notice (and most of the time, so does that little golden statue named Oscar). Christian Bale in ‘The Machinist,’ Matthew McConaughey in ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ Charlize Theron in ‘Monster,’ Christian Bale in the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy, etc. Jake Gyllenhaal recently joined the club when he dropped 25 pounds to play the sociopathic Lou Bloom in ‘Nightcrawler,’ and now he’s at it again with his incredible transformation for his next film, Antoine Fuqua’s ‘Southpaw.’

The Power of Cussing in Movies – A Paintball for Every Swear Word In the Average Movie [VIDEO]

I don't think we realize just how many swear words are in movies these days.  The first known swear word in a major motion picture came with Gone With The Wind.  From that point on it just got worse and worse and worse.  I was shocked when the latest Transformers movie dropped and f-bomb for really no apparent reason, knowing full well children younger than the rating would be watching that movie.  They hid behind the PG-13.  This video proves a point about swearing in movies.  It is pretty powerful.
