Smaug misses the mark…as does Peter Jackson.
This movie is either gonna be awesome or so awesomely campy that you’re gonna wanna see it anyway. (I’m hoping that De Niro will be brilliant, and that this isn’t just the beginning of an Al Pacino-esque flameout….)
Anyway, Grudge Match! Old dudes getting their fight on, and a funny, two-finger salute to everyone who has ever made fun of Sly for continuing to crank out the testosterone films. Here’s the synopsis:
Award-winning movie legends Oscar® winner Robert De Niro (“Raging Bull,” “Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar® nominee Sylvester Stallone (the “Rocky” films, “The Expendables”) star as old boxing rivals who come out of retirement for one final match. De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all. But they may not have to wait that long: on their first encounter in decades, their long-festering feud erupts into an unintentionally hilarious melee that instantly goes viral. The sudden social media frenzy transforms their local grudge match into a must-see HBO event. Now, if they can just survive the training, they may actually live to fight again.
The film has been rated PG-13 for sports action violence, sexual content and language.

Already sick of the malls after Black Friday? Well, how about free movie passes to tempt you back? Wanna see Walking With Dinosaurs? A 3D screening of Walking With Dinosaurs? Yeah you do. Here’s the 411 from the lovely and wonderful PR folks:
For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. Recent discoveries and a breakthrough in technology will introduce new and unique dinosaurs that are more real than ever before and put moviegoers in the middle of a thrilling prehistoric adventure, where an underdog dinosaur triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.
C’mon, like that doesn’t scream adorable. Like Land Before Time, but more kewl, and less cutesie for cutesie’s sake.
Here’s the deets for the screening….
Twittview: Homefront delivers an intense, action-packed, thriller that is bad-ass! Jason Statham, James Franco, script by Sylvester Stallone. Rated R for intense-action, language, and drugs. — Grade A.

Emotional roller coaster in a good way. Very funny, very sad, very uplifting and very real. Terrence Howard steals the show. Skews to the 30+ audience, but wide enough appeal for black and white. A+
Sylvester Stallone lends his cash and ink & quill to bring his buddy Jason Statham (The Transporter) to the big screen in Homefront. A powerful family centered action drama co-starring Kate Bosworth, Winona Ryder & James Franco. Want to catch an early screening? Sure you do…
Hi everyone! The studio has switched the date of the Baltimore screening of The Book Thief: it was scheduled for 11/14, but now it’s Monday, 11/19.
What’s more, the 11/14 passes WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED on the 19th. So…here’s a link for new passes: http://l.gofobo.us/1F7mQ4d2
I wish there was a way to guarantee that folks that already have passes would automatically get passes for the 19th. But unfortunately, that’s not so.
Good luck everyone, and sorry for the mix-up!
