New Believe Season 2 Not Happening,It’s Canceled Forever

New Believe season 2 not happening,it’s canceled forever. Hey, “Believe” fans. Unfortunately, we have to tell you guys that you’re gonna have to let this one go, because NBC did just that in early May 2014 by canceling the hell out of it. Heck, you were just lucky enough to get to see the rest of the season’s episodes actually air!

Additionally, NBC also got rid of a couple of their other shows: Revolution, their rookie sitcom ,Growing Up Fisher, and freshman dramas, Crisis and Dracula. If you’re a fan of any of those shows, this is definitely going to be a rough article for you. Oh well. It’s time to mark those shows off your TV calendars.

On a bright note ,NBC did renew Grimm, Hannibal, and About A Boy for new seasons.

New X Men,Apocalypse Plot & Character Spoilers Dished Out By Screenwriter

xmenapnews

New X Men,Apocalypse plot & character spoilers dished out by screenwriter. According to a recent report from Comicbookmovie.com, “X-Men: Apocalypse” screenwriter, Simon Kinberg, dished out some new,initial plot and character spoilers to the Daily Beast.

It turns out that the plot will mostly focus on the young First Class mutants again, but some of the older version X-Men are slated to come back, thus revealing that a time element may be still be in play in this one too. Simon told them: “It will focus primarily on the First Class cast, but it will certainly have some of the original cast involved, too.” He also said that Bryan Singer is expected to return to direct.

Then he commented on the Gambit character, explaining, “Gambit is still in-motion and being figured out. Channing made it known that it was a character that he loved and would love to play, and all the people who work on the X-Men movies are huge fans of his, so the notion of him playing it is exciting. I’m more fascinated by anti-heroes, and Gambit is one of those.

I don’t know why he wasn’t explored in the original X-Men movies. Maybe the reason why was because they wanted to focus on Rogue/Bobby or the platonic Rogue/Wolverine relationship, and maybe there were too many similarities between Wolverine and Gambit, so in order to make it a Wolverine-centric franchise they had to cut him loose.”

New Zac Efron ‘Neighbors’ movie got mostly positive reviews from top critics. Universal Pictures released their new comedy flick, “Neighbors’ into theaters today,and the top critics have submitted their reviews. It turns out that most of them liked it as it got an overall 69 out of a 100 score across 38 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Jerrod Carmichael. We’ve included blurbs from a couple of the critics,below.

Chris Nashawaty at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a great 83 score, stating,”Speaking in her native Aussie twang, Byrne shows that she’s a deadpan comic ace. And thanks to her chemistry with Rogen, Neighbors proves that just because you grow up doesn’t mean you have to be a grown-up.”

Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it an 80 grade. She said: “This raunchy unrooting of a settled suburban idyll exposes the considerable angst of emerging adulthood with a kind of scatological fervor designed to elicit oodles of inappropriate laughs. It succeeds.”

John DeFore from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it an 80 grade. He stated: “Very funny at the outset and escalating steadily for most of its brisk running time, the film represents a big win for neophyte screenwriters Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien.”

Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it a 75, stating: “Neighbors is the “Animal House” for an era in which food fights seem quaint.” Mick LaSalle over at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 score too, saying, “Neighbors is funny for all 96 of its minutes, not counting the credits, and it contains the single best sight gag of the year so far. (We’re talking laugh-out-loud funny and then laugh again later, just thinking about it.)”

Richard Roeper over at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 75 grade. He said: “About 40 percent of Neighbors falls flat. About 60 percent made me laugh hard, even when I knew I should have known better.” Peter Travers from Rolling Stone gave it a 75, stating: “You expect hardcore hilarity from Neighbors, and you get it. It’s the nuance that sneaks up on you.”

amazing spiderman2 movie poster image

New Amazing Spider Man 2 got mixed reviews from the top critics. Columbia Pictures (Sony), released their new super hero/action flick, “The Amazing Spider Man 2” into theaters yesterday, May 1st, and the top critics have submitted their reviews. It ended up getting mixed reviews with an overall score of 53 out of a 100 across 48 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak, and Sarah Gadon. We’ve posted blurbs from a couple of the critics,below.

Joe Neumaier from the New York Daily News, gave it an 80 score, stating, “There are two types of superhero movies: the ones that brood and the ones that swing. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is proudly the latter, filled with high-energy action.”

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 75. He said, “Director Marc Webb and his forces come up with some gorgeous special effects, and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have terrific chemistry, but as is the case with far too many superhero movies, the plot is a bit of an overstuffed mess.”

Claudia Puig over at USA Today, gave it another 75 score, saying, “Aerial sequences are often thrilling. However, interpersonal relations are front and center in this installment.”

Chris Nashawaty from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 75. He stated: “It’s a Marvel spectacle that manages to deftly balance razzle-dazzle, feel-it-in-your-gut slingshot moments of flight and believable human relationships. There’s psychological weight to go with all of the gravity-defying, webslinging weightlessness.”

Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 score, stating, “It has action sequences that will appeal to people looking for the usual pyrotechnics, but the core of the movie – and the source of the audience’s interest – is emotion.”

Leslie Felperin at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 70, saying, “The plot gets itself tangled up in multiple villain strands, but in the main this installment is emotionally weightier and more satisfying than its predecessor.”

Guy Lodge at Variety, gave it a 70 grade as well. He said: “Redundancy remains a problem, but this overlong superhero sequel gets by on sound, fury and star chemistry.”

BetsySharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60, stating, “The Occasionally Amazing Spider-Man 2 might be a better way to think of the not-always-spectacular but sometimes satisfying Spider-Man sequel.”

Christy Lemire from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 50, stating, “It’s sufficiently giddy at first but eventually grows repetitive and wearying, especially as more and more stuff gets blown up real good.” Peter Travers over at Rolling Stone , gave it a 50, stating, “Things go wrong quickly with Amazing 2. Am I the only one who hates the word Amazing to describe a movie that isn’t? Just asking. If I had to pinpoint where this epic goes south, I’d start with the tonal shifts.”

New Draft Day movie got mixed reviews from top critics. Summit Entertainment (Lionsgate) released their new comedy/sports flick, “Draft Day” into theaters today, and the reviews are in from the top movie critics. It turns out that it’s not absolutely horrible as it ,at least, got some mixed reviews with a 52 score out of a possible 100 across 23 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Ellen Burstyn, Denis Leary, Frank Langella, Chadwick Boseman, and Sean Combs. We’ve included snippets from a couple of the critics, below.

Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 75 score,stating, “A sentimental, predictable, sometimes implausible but thoroughly entertaining, old-fashioned piece.” Mick LaSalle over at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it another 75, stating, ” Entertaining and suspenseful, the movie shows the politicking and strategies that go into this annual ritual, and Costner is at his beleaguered best.”

Todd McCarthy over at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 70 grade. He said: “In his most effective full star turn in perhaps a decade, Kevin Costner dominates as the greenhorn general manager of the beleaguered Cleveland Browns.” Scott Foundas from Variety, gave it a 70 score, stating, “Draft Day affords the simple but uncommon pleasure of watching intelligent characters who are passionate about what they do trying to do the best that they can.”

Scott Bowles from USA Today, gave it a 63. He stated: “Draft’s reverence for the gridiron, its heroes and the cities that worship them (particularly Cleveland) will make the movie a first-round pick of diehards.” Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 63 score, stating, “Draft Day feels like a play, and I don’t mean a football play. It feels like a play-play at its sporadic best, in the same way J.C. Chandor’s 2011 “Margin Call” felt that way.”

Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score. He said: “This is an earnest and way-contrived endeavor that manages, due largely to Costner’s efforts, to be genially diverting in a gee-whiz kind of way.” Stephanie Merry over at the Washington Post, gave it a 50 grade. She stated: “This isn’t a sports movie so much as a procedural about backroom dealings, double-crosses and high-stakes trades.”

A.O. Scott from the New York Times, gave it a 50, stating, “I don’t really buy Draft Day — it’s a shallow and evasive movie, built more around corporate wish fulfillment than around reality — but I have to say that it sells itself beautifully.” Peter Keough at the Boston Globe, gave it a 38 score, stating, “It’s a big deal for the NFL and ESPN, no doubt, and Draft Day serves as 110 minutes of product placement for both.”

New Need For Speed Movie Got Mostly Negative Reviews From Top Critics

needforspeedmpsmall

New Need For Speed movie got mostly negative reviews from top critics. DreamWorks Pictures released their new action flick, “Need For Speed” into theaters this weekend, and the reviews from the top critics are in. For the most part, they’re pretty negative as it scored just a 38 out of 100 across 27 reviews at Metacritic.com. We posted a few snippets from some of them (below). The movie stars: Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Harrison Gilbertson, Scott ‘Kid Cudi’ Mescudi, Michael Keaton, and Dakota Johnson.

Bill Zwecker at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 63 score, stating, “The best parts of Need for Speed are the actual racing and chasing sequences — a true thrill ride for the audience as the story unfolds.” Michael Phillips from the Chicago Tribune, gave it another 63, stating, “When the actors are in cars, the movie’s fun. When they get out to argue, or seethe, it’s uh-oh time. Happily, director Scott Waugh comes out of the stunt world himself, and there’s a refreshing emphasis on actual, theoretically dangerous stunt driving over digital absurdities.”

A.O. Scott over at the The New York Times, gave it a 60 grade. He said: “An energetic, unpretentious B movie — the kind best seen at a drive-in like the one in an early scene — it is devoted, above all, to the delivery of visceral, kinetic excitement.”

Scott Foundas over at Variety, gave it a 60, stating, “Paul plays the part with the flinty, tightly wound charisma of a small man who makes up in moxie what he lacks in stature. There’s something of the young James Cagney in him, and he’s by far the best thing Need for Speed has going for it.”

Betsy Sharkey at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 50 score. She stated: “Waugh has a good feel for the cars and action extremes, while director of photography Shane Hurlbut acquits himself nicely. But the screenplay written by George Gatins is full of potholes.”

Entertainment Weekly’s Keith Staskiewicz, gave it another 50 grade. He said: “A moderately popular racing series that the powers that be have tried to turn into a turbo-boosted stunt-car extravaganza of the same make and model as the “Fast & Furious” franchise.”

Marc Bernardin at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 40 score, stating, “Need For Speed is a flat, sexless movie that seems not to understand why people like to sit in the driver’s seat and rev that big engine: Because of the transgressive rumble in your nethers.”

Claudia Puig over at USA Today, gave it a 38. She stated, “Ostensibly meant to be light entertainment. If light is synonymous with preposterous, frenetic and noisy, it qualifies.” Ty Burr from the Boston Globe, gave it another 38 score, stating, “All that’s missing is Clyde the orangutan from Clint Eastwood’s “Every Which Way But Loose,” which, trust me, this movie could have used.”

Peter Travers at Rolling Stone, gave it another 38 score. He said: “There’s nothing to distract you from a plot so tired there are tire tracks from other racing movies all over it.” Kyle Smith from the New York Post, gave it a 38 , stating , “Young men and fast cars are automatically stupid together, but even if you set your intelligence level at “off” — and you should — you’ll get a hangover from this cocktail of 200-proof stupid, clinking with moron ice cubes and with an idiot cherry on top.”

New 300,Rise Of An Empire Movie Got Mixed Reviews From Top Critics

300 rise of an empire movie poster image

New 300,Rise Of An Empire movie got mixed reviews from top critics. Warner Bros. Pictures released their new action/drama flick, “300: Rise Of An Empire” into theaters this weekend, and the reviews are in from the top critics. They were pretty mixed for the most part as it scored an overall 48 out of 100 across 25 reviews over at Metacritic.com. We’ve added a few of them,below. The movie stars: Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro, Igal Naor, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell, and Andrew Tiernan.

Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a great 88 score, stating, “Even with the uniformly good performances — and the standout work from Ms. Green — 300: Rise of an Empire is foremost a triumph of production design, costumes, brilliantly choreographed battle sequences and stunning CGI.”

Chris Nashawaty at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 75, stating, “The film belongs to Green — maybe the only actress ever to “graduate” from being a Bertolucci muse to a bloodthirsty action-flick dominatrix.” Scott Foundas over at Variety gave it a 70 score. He said: “Anchored by Eva Green’s fearsome performance as a Persian naval commander whose vengeful bloodlust makes glowering King Xerxes seem a mere poseur, this highly entertaining time-filler lacks the mythic resonances that made “300” feel like an instant classic, but works surprisingly well on its own terms.”

Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 63 grade, stating, “This is digital fake-ism all the way. Audiences bought it the first time; they’re likely to buy it a second time.” Kyle Smith at the New York Post, gave it a 63 score, claiming,”Green rules the picture with her nutty stare and her willingness to get nasty in a hot sex scene, but the movie’s main weak point is the Greek general Themistokles.”

Los Angeles Times’ Betsy Sharkey gave it a 60 grade. She stated, “The spectacularly brutal fighting is the film’s main calling card, and in that “Rise of an Empire” doesn’t disappoint. Still, in the battle for best guilty pleasure, I’d give it to the Spartans of “300,” by a head.”

Nicholas Rapold at The New York Times, gave it a 50, stating, “The naval collisions and melees play out in panel-like renderings that are bold and satisfying for the first half-hour but lack the momentum and bombastic je ne sais quoi of “300.” Ty Burr from the Boston Globe, gave it a 50 score. He said, “Basically, if the first “300” was a pep-talk from Coach on how to lose with dignity, Rise of an Empire is an inspirational speech on the value of teamwork.”

Todd McCarthy over at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it another 50 score, stating, ” Other than for the pleasure of watching Green try to conquer ancient Greece dressed as a distant forebearer of Catwoman, more is less and a little late in this long-aborning sequel.”

Ann Hornaday from the Washington Post, gave it a 25. She said: “When the film isn’t sloppily directed, it’s a series of lazy filmmaking tics, including fetishistic slow-motion shots of blood, water and sweat, as well as sundry dismemberments, impalings and decapitations.”

New Grudge Match Movie Got Really Bad Reviews From Top Critics

grudge match movie poster image

New Grudge Match movie got really bad reviews from top critics. Warner Bros. Pictures dropped their new comedy/drama film, “Grudge Match” into theaters this past Wednesday, December 25th, and the top movie critics in the biz, served up their reviews. The results ended up being pretty negative, overall, as it got an overall score of 37 out of 100 across 27 critic reviews at metacritic.com. We posted a few of their snippets (below). The movie stars: Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Kevin Hart, Alan Arkin, Kim Basinger, Jon Bernthal,and Camden Gray.

Odie Henderson at RogerEbert.com, awarded it a 63 score, stating, “Grudge Match belongs to a fast-growing genre I’ll call “Senior Citizen Action Porn,” or SCAP. Proud members of SCAP include “Red” and its sequel, “Red 2,” the “Expendables” series, and the best of the 2013 crop, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “The Last Stand.”

Mark Olsen at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score. He stated, ” Grudge Match never settles on the movie it wants to be, wavering uncertainly between a jokey old-guys comedy and something more dramatic and heartfelt.” Tom Russo at the Boston Globe, gave it a 50, saying, ” Stallone and De Niro simply don’t generate enough combative spark to make this anything more than an amiably mediocre diversion.”

Peter Hartlaub from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 50 score. He said, “Grudge Match at its core is an affront to the cinema gods, an attempt to capitalize off two iconic films for a few cheap laughs.” Stephanie Merry from the Washington Post, gave it a 50 score, stating, “Luckily, a strong supporting cast makes up for the protagonists’ tepid interactions. The brilliant duo of Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin steal the show.”

Andrew Barker over at Variety, gave it a 40 score, stating, ” Essentially recasting “Grumpy Old Men” with the senescent specters of Rocky Balboa and Jake LaMotta, the result is sporadically amusing, with some chucklesome sight gags and crowdpleasing supporting turns from Alan Arkin and Kevin Hart, yet it’s all so overcooked that it defeats its own purpose.”

Scott Bowles over at the USA Today team, gave it a 38 score. He said, “Grudge could have saved itself with a rousing finale, but the buildup is so tedious you just want the fight to end.” Bill Zwecker from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 38, stating, “Grudge Match does not work on any level. The story is unconvincing. The comedy elements are weak… And, worst of all, the acting in most scenes, particularly those involving Sylvester Stallone and Kim Basinger — is atrocious.”

Stephen Holden from The New York Times, gave it a 30 score. He said: “An overlong, drab, not-so-funny sports comedy.” John DeFore at the Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 30 score as well, saying, “The movie only wakes up when Hart and/or Arkin are on screen (preferably together).”
