Since we  rolled our eyes and made rude gestures when Fear Dot Com tried to impart its message on us, Hollywood is once again warning that the Internet will murder us all. This time with a decidedly non-supernatural approach. Jason Bateman, who learned nothing from his experience with identity theft, is at it again. Playing with his phone like a dumb jerk while those around him get identity thefted, stalked, and Catfished. It’s like Crash but trades the n-word for “nOOb,” the other n-word.

Though I can’t imagine the pain associated with losing a loved one or my livelihood to the cruelty of the internet, Disconnect seems a bit overdramatic and forced. Or fake and gay, if you will.

Next week, Paula Patton will make her action film debut, playing a member of Ethan Hunt’s wrongly-persecuted spy squad in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. It’s technically not her first action flick; she also appeared alongside Denzel Washington in Deja Vu, but that was more of a damsel in distress role for the most part. Now she’ll be the one firing the guns, fighting the bad guys, and more than likely pulling a double cross or two, if the past Mission: Impossible films are anything to judge by.

Be sure to check out this full trailer for Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol presented to us by an eery adult version of Haley Joel Osment. Looks like Tom Cruise is back in the having to clear his name game after he finds himself framed for blowing up The Kremlin. Since that would piss a lot of people off, he and his team have to go underground and complete their own mission without the aid of their murdered bosses. On account of they being murdered and whatnot.

Jeremy Renner also stars as an agent that nobody is sure they can trust. It’s been said that he’s being groomed to take over the series from Cruise. He even does Tom Cruise‘s famous hover just inches above the floor move. The kid’s got potential.

It would appear from this trailer that the new Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol trailer is nothing but action. And the phrase “Your mission, should you choose to accept it.” It would appear that Ethan and the rest of the IMF gang have been disavowed and ar fighting to restore their reputations. (Again. Are they never not disavowed? They have the flakiest employer.)

Anyway, as Brad Bird knows,the best way to restore a reputation these days is to kick lots of people in the chest. So by the looks of this trailer, the IMF team should be back in high regard in no time at all.

Review: Jumping The Broom http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-jumping-the-broom/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-jumping-the-broom/#comments Fri, 06 May 2011 15:34:58 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=210889 It’s not funny, and it’s obnoxious about trying to be funny.

The post Review: Jumping The Broom appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
It comes as no surprise that Jumping the Broom is not a good movie. It’s not funny, and it’s obnoxious about trying to be funny, so let me confirm that you need not feel guilty for skipping this one.

Sabrina (Paula Patton) won’t shut up from the moment we meet her, in voiceover or in dialogue. Jason (Laz Alonso) must be the most patient man in the world, and he likes opera. After five months of dating, Jason proposes to Sabrina because she got a job in China and he wants them to be together.

Things get worse when we get to the wedding preparations. Poor Julie Bowen plays Annie, a highly stressed wedding planner. She asks downright racist questions about the difference in skin tone of the various African-American family members. She also improvises a “grrrrl” and manages to work a fried chicken stereotype in there. The suntan lotion scene would be shocking, if Annie weren’t already so inappropriate.

Well, Sabrina’s never met Jason’s parents. Pam (Loretta Devine) is a sassy postal worker. She brings along her friend Shonda (Tasha Smith) to make bidet jokes at the wealthy Claudine’s (Angela Bassett) Martha’s Vineyard estate. Pam’s just so sassy, how could she ever fit in with Claudine’s side of the family!

This is basically a really poorly planned wedding. Nobody contacted any of the people in the wedding party to tell them what they needed to wear or bring. Not only haven’t Jason and Sabrina met each other’s families, they clearly haven’t even talked about them. By the night before the wedding, Jason should have at least said, “Listen Honey, my mom is traditional and wants the broom ceremony, so even though we decided against it, it’s going to be an issue so let’s be prepared to deal with her.”

These family comedies are a real pet peeve of mine because most of them celebrate dysfunction and bad behavior. I will give Jumping the Broom credit that the tone all along is that people should be honest and discuss their issues, rather than keep secrets and try to orchestrate their perfect fantasy.

Uncle Willie Earl (Mike Epps) does confront Pam about sabotaging the wedding and the best man Ricky (Pooch Hall) does tell cousin Malcolm (Deray Davis) he should not speculate about the couple’s personal life. The film tries to promote healthy discussion but it’s no funnier and there are worse offenses in the racism (is it reverse racism to foist those jokes onto a white character?) and annoying characters.

Jumping the Broom drops serious bombs like a Tyler Perry movie. There’s also a religious agenda too. Jason prays to get Sabrina back when conflict tears them apart, and Pam prays on the family secrets she learns about Claudine. When Jason professes his love in the climax, his speech seriously reminded me of “this is our hill, and our beans” from The Naked Gun.

Ladies Lined Up Around The Block To Be In ‘Total Recall’ Remake http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ladies-lined-up-around-the-block-to-be-in-total-recall-remake/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ladies-lined-up-around-the-block-to-be-in-total-recall-remake/#comments Tue, 22 Mar 2011 18:03:00 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=202957 So many females, so little parts.

The post Ladies Lined Up Around The Block To Be In ‘Total Recall’ Remake appeared first on Screen Junkies.

There are two major female roles in Total Recall, which is getting remade with director Len Wiseman and star Colin Farrell. You’ve got your Lori, the protagonist’s wife who quickly goes from best-to-worst wife ever, as memorably portrayed by Sharon Stone in a star-making part in the original movie, and Melina, the woman who acts as the main character’s sidekick in his adventures on Mars. No word on whether the three-boobed mutant or the dwarf with the machine gun is attracting any interest, but I have to imagine those are coveted roles as well.

And for whatever reason, these parts are being sought by a variety of actresses in Hollywood. For the first part, the one originated by Sharon Stone, Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) are said to be reading. For the second part, real love-interest, has Eva Mendes and Paula Patton rumored to be interested. Keep in mind this is all just rumor, and these names aren’t the only ones in contention for these parts. The article at Deadline also mentions Eva Green and Jessica Biel. So, yeah, if you’re looking for a way to impress girls, stage a remake of a Phillip K. Dick adaptation from years ago. Blade Runner would make the chicks go wild!

He'll suit up with a cast that already includes Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Ving Rhames, and Simon Pegg. No details on who he'll play or what he'll do or how the movie will include a plot. I do know the when. It's shooting in the fall for a December 2011 release. Mission: Impossible 4 will be directed by Brad Bird, the guy who makes terrific animated movies. It's the first studio film for Holloway and the first live action studio film for Bird. Talk about the odd men out. If some teasing and serious intimidation on Tom Cruise's part doesn't cause rifts in production someone isn't taking full advantage of their elite Hollywood status. Give the rookies purple nurples while you still can, veterans! (THR)

Well Paula Patton has emerged victorious! The Deja Vu star will play a young operative who works with Ethan Hunt. Tom Cruise will reprise his role as Hunt, but Paramount doesn't want to make a big deal about his involvement. He was the cat's meow back when the first movie launched, but now he's that guy you dread having lunch with simply to maintain the relationship. Maybe M:I 4 director Brad Bird can elevate his status back to Top Gun levels. That is if co-star Jeremy Renner doesn't steal the spotlight. Oh how that would anger Cruise so. Couch-stomping mad.
