Bruckheimer’s Chase Lives Up To Its Name!


Chase [NBC, Mondays, 10/9C] certainly lives up to its name. The premiere opens with two U.S. Marshals chasing a fugitive – through a herd of cattle being driven through a downtown area as part of a state fair, through an arena and, finally, down a tunnel that splits into two paths. He ambushes the female Marshal and is trying to choke her out. “Didn’t your mother ever tell you not to play with guns?” he asks. She turns the tables on him and chokes him out, instead. “My mother died when I was I eight,” she says to the unconscious man, “so, no.”

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is Practically the Definition of Goofy Summer Fun!


It’s that time of summer, again: Bruckheimer time. Instead of another National Treasure film, though, this time we’ve got The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – inspired by [and including an homage to] the Mickey Mouse/Sorcerer’s Apprentice short from Fantasia. It’s a loud, jam-packed, cheerily crazy piece of work that could spawn yet another franchise for Bruckheimer and star Nicolas Cage.

Movie News: Production Round-Up Week of 5.28.10


Hollywood is having the same financial ups and downs as the rest of business world.

On the down side, MGM , which is almost $4 billion in debt, said on Thursday that its lenders agreed to let it skip interest and principal payments until July 14. In a news release, the struggling studio said “The lenders took this action in support of the company’s ongoing efforts to evaluate long-term strategic alternatives to maximize value for its stakeholders.” While MGM is treading water to keep from sinking, the creditors are attempting to fend off a take over bid by Time Warner, whose offer they feel is way too low. The creditors are instead trying to figure out a way to restructure the company and keep it as a stand-alone studio.

On the upside, In the first major film financing deal to hit Hollywood since the economic downturn, Village Roadshow Pictures Group on Thursday closed on a $1 billion credit facility to finance its current and future slate of movies. Bruce Berman, chief executive of Village Roadshow Pictures had this statement to make about the lucrative deal.“This new financing enables us to expand upon the solid foundation we’ve established within the industry and grow our slate of tentpole and star-driven films.”

Village Roadshow, which was formed in 1997, has been one of the industry’s leading financiers and producers of studio released motion pictures. Sixty-one of their library of sixty-five movies have been released in partnership with Warner Brothers. This is the longest running partnership that the venerable studio has had with an independent production studio.

Outside of these ups and downs, a lot of new projects are in the works for the folks out in Hollywood land last week. Here is around up of the movies audiences can look forward to seeing.

Prince of Persia The Sands of Time fails to be Epic, Michelle’s Review!

Prince of Persia Sands of Time Review

I don’t know. I just don’t know…. I’m not sure if I really liked Prince of Persia or not. I’m not one of these critics who have an irrational hatred for all things Jerry Bruckheimer, I actually love most of his movies (except the Transformer series) and recently watched Armageddon again on Blu-ray and still love that movie – it makes me cry every time, yeah I’m a Sap. So back to Prince of Persia, I honestly don’t know if I liked it or not. I will say it’s the best video game movie – ever, but that’s damning the movie with faint praise.
