Wow. Liam Neeson's "I told you I was a badass" skills are finally coming to surface. This obviously was filmed a long time ago though, as Maggie Grace does not pass for a high school student now.

This is set to be released overseas this month, but still no U.S. date. No clue as to why, but cant wait to see Liam kick some foreign ass!

There are certain guidelines nerds across the world must follow in order to have a successful website. They are as follows (no particular order):
1. You can make a living entertaining people with your cute URL.
2. Someone besides yourself makes a factual wikipedia page about you.
3. The guy that shot/edited most of the music videos for that one band, Midlake, contacts you and wants to shoot one of your video reviews.

With that said, we are happy to share with you that we have finally achieved one of those three things. Jon Collins, of Midlake music video fame, will be shooting/editing our next video review, Be Kind Rewind. Check out his short, but sweet, demo reel below. Look for our review on February 22, the same day the movie drops. Holla!

1. The Brave One
thebraveoneposter.jpg
Starring:
Jodie Foster, Terrence Howard, Nicky Katt, and Naveen Andrews
Directed by:
Neil Jordan
This is by far one of director Neil Jordan’s most mainstream movies. Mr. Jordan is the talented hand behind such art house gems as Crying Game and The Good Thief.
Jodie Foster stars in this vigilante justice film about a woman who hunts down and murders the men who brutally killed her lover.
The Brave One asks the same question at the center of all revenge films. When is it ok to take in the law in your hands? Despite a tired theme, The Brave One does have a strong sense of suspense and the quality acting by everyone involved is enough to make this an entertaining but by no means a great film.

2. Across The Universe
acrosstheuniverseposter.jpg
Starring:
Evan Rachel Wood, Jim Sturges, and Joe Anderson
Directed by:
Julie Taymor
Set in the 1960’s, dock worker Jude (Sturges) travels to America in search of his father. Once there, Jude meets and falls in love a beautiful teenager named Lucy (Wood), but the relationship is soon disrupted by the changing spirit of the 60’s.
Across the Universe is inspired by the music and soul of the Beatles. The film is very ambitious and at times, beautiful piece of work. The musical numbers (all involving Beatles songs) are elaborate and mesmerizing. However, the love story is as standard and boring, as the film’s style is impressive. Across the Universe contains many movie clichés, but is defiantly worth a look due to its great production values and musical numbers.

These following films are also being released but have not been seen by anyone from Gordon and the Whale. Oops!
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,
Elizabeth: The Golden Age,
and Snow Buddies

Poor Jessica Alba. I'm willing to bet she thought she had a The Ring/Grudge hit on her hands. If I was her, I would fire my agent ASAP. I'm very aware the movie hit number two this weekend, but I have no doubts in my mind it will have a nasty fall off the bandwagon come week two. When you rely on extremely loud sounds to scare your audience, you know you're in a bit of a bind.

NO THANKS.

Rent and watch the original. It scared the freckles off my face.

Here;s the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's new film, The Happening. It's a paranoid thriller about a family on the run from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity starring Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel, and John Leguizamo.

Reminds me of this Japanese film called Suicide Club. Which was really violet and sucked. This teaser looks awesome and I believe in Shyamalan can have another hit on his hands. Yes, I know his last film Lady in the Water was embarrassing to watch, but don't forget the solid good ones he did. Someone does need to tell him to heavily think when doing taglines. "We've Sensed It. We've Seen The Signs. Now... It's Happening." I mean, Seriously? Watch the trailer below and tell me what you think!

The Happening opens Friday, June 13! FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH!!!!!

Rating: 5/10

Director, Writer: Jeff Lowell
Cast: Eva Longoria, Paul Rudd, Lake Bell
Studio: New Line Cinema

I'm still new to writing reviews for movies. It's a lot easier if I really liked the movie. I could ramble on for hours about everything. The great script, the unique cinematography. The actors chemistry. With all these things, I could ramble for hours. But what do I do if I see something I didn't like, and had nothing to nice to say? I don't like trash talking because no matter how bad the film is, somebody on that set busted their ass to get it completed and into theaters.

When asked what I thought about OVER HER DEAD BODY, I could only come up with five words: Thank God for Paul Rudd! If he hadn't taken part in this film, I probably would have been way too frustrated to write anything at all. But I'm going to try:

Chick Flick (as taken from Urban Dictionary)

1. A film that indulges in the hopes and dreams of women and/or girls. A film that has a happy, fuzzy, ridiculously unrealistic ending.
2. A genre of movies that has been formed all on it's own combining the genres of Romance, Drama, and Comedy. These movies are filled with cliche after cliche, yet so irresistable for the female population to go out and see the next version. Each contains the same plot with the Character names changed. Producers see sales of these movies soar when the members of the female population are eithe PMSing or just plain MSing. Must have Kleenex box in hand.
3. A movie a guy goes to with the sole purpose of making out.

Whatever your preference, OVER HER DEAD BODY is one of those movies you take your girlfriend to see because last weekend it was your pick, and she had to sit through RAMBO.

The only thing that annoyed me to no end was the lack of good special effects. I'm sure the budget wasn't epic, but seriously, if you're going to attempt at "ooh/ahhing" people with forms of CGI, make it look good. One example of this is the scene when Kate (Longoria) won't leave Ashley's (Bell) medicine cabinet. Oh wait, and the scene when she's hovering over them while they are making out. Mirror flip anyone?

Like I said, I don't like trashing movies so I'm going to leave it at that. If you have to go see this movie with your girlfriend, just know that you are scoring major points in her book and if you actually squeeze out a few laughs (which, surprisingly, I did) you can double those points. It's not a bad deal I guess.

PS If you're the girlfriend, just know that your man loved the movie and loves you even more. (points tripled)

Strange Wilderness is the latest release from Adam Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison. In the film Steve Zahn plays the well-meaning TV host Peter Gaulke, who is trying to restore his deceased Father’s nature show to the level of success it previously enjoyed. The movie contains Sandler film veterans Allen Covert (the lead in Grandma’s Boy) and Peter Dante. Jonah Hill, who played the quick witted and determined Seth in Superbad, is also part of the fictional show’s crew. Justin Long, who played minor but amusing roles in the comedies Walk Hard and The Break Up is also along for the ride, and is clearly having a great time playing the show’s pot-head camera man. Considering all the comedic talent involved in Strange Wilderness, one would figure at worst the film would be a moderately entertaining comedy. However, even for a stoner comedy Strange Wilderness seems half backed, containing very few genuine laughs.
The film’s premise is as a simple as you might expect. After Peter’s Boss, played by Jeff Garlin, yet another funny actor who is not funny in this film, tells Peter he is about to cancel the show Peter decides to track down and film Big Foot to gain some much needed ratings and save the show.
The whole movie feels as though a group of friends got high, got a video camera, wrote a very thin plot summary, and then decided to try and make a movie. Most film scripts are over a hundred pages, and I’m really curious to find out if Strange Wilderness’ script is even over fifteen pages. The actors often resort to just yelling their unfunny lines in a sad attempt to make their lines somewhat humorous. Except in the case of Jonah Hill, who just uses a weak accent that doesn’t sound like it belongs to any particular region. With the exception of Justin Long, the actors seem just as lazy as the script in attempting to generate laughs. However, the film is not without comical moments entirely. The voiceovers of the animals in their habitat always prove to enjoyable, and are truly the best part of the film. Unfortunately, the voiceovers make up about ten percent of the film, so the audience has a lot of downtime to prepare for their next laughs.
The film’s ending pretty much sums up the whole movie. No one says anything particularly funny, then the actors start laughing and that’s it. The scene looks like something that belongs in the gag reel. It appears as if the filmmakers and actors are saying, "we didn’t take this thing seriously at all and we can’t believe this is actually getting released in theaters."

Some people are a bit unclear on what's going on this Wednesday night, so here is some info.

Gordon and the Whale Dot Com is throwing a movie party for Colin Farrell's (I had to google his name to finally spell it right) new film, In Bruges. Take note- it's NOT a screening. That's the following night. What it will be though is: two cool dudes playing good music all night long, one hip photographer taking your blemish free photo, cheap drinks (thanks Rubber Gloves!), and three nerdy film guys giving you passes, beanies, posters, and shirts that say "My best friend went to fucking Bruges, and all I got was this fucking shirt." We will also be having a contest with the winners getting reserved passes for the screening of In Bruges Thursday, February 7th (NEXT DAY).

This is all new to us, and we're very excited to be doing this. If all goes whale, we will be doing things like this a lot more. All you have to do is show up.

I also almost forgot to mention two more very important things. There is NO COVER for this event. I'll restate that. NO COVER FOR THIS EVENT.

Oh, and Chipotle is bringing food. All FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

The photo above states why Hannah Montana topped the charts over the weekend. It only has a two week run (ten bucks says the keep it going), and IT'S IN 3D. I honestly don't understand the hype with this, by then again, I'm no longer twelve. But in my twelve year old self defense, I would not pay $15 to see this movie. Especially if it's just a girl singing songs in 3D. We have U2 3D for that.

It doesn't surprise me that The Eye hit at number two. The youth of America seem to have a knack for shitty horror/thriller films. ZZZzzzzzzzzzz. It won't be on the tops next week, I can guarantee it.

Juno is still in the tops (yay!) along with 27 Dresses, but Meet The Spartans? Seriously? It was bad enough that it beat out Rambo last weekend for the top spot considering all the marketing Rambo put in, but still in the top five in it's second week? C'mon!

New comers Over Her Dead Body and Strange Wilderness didn't even break top 10. If you saw these this weekend, you know why.

Results (Feb. 1-3):

Movie Studio Weekend Gross Total Budget
Hannah Montana BV $29,000,000 $29,000,000 N/A
The Eye LGF $13,000,000 $13,000,000 N/A

You DO know who Charlie Kaufman is, right? Yes, you do. He is the genius with Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Human Nature under his screenwriting belt.

synecdochenyfirstphoto.jpg

IonCinema has an exclusive first look photo of his directorial debut film Synecdoch, New York. It stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as Caden, a theater director who attempts to create a life-size replica of New York city inside a warehouse for his new play. This project was first supposed to be under the hands of his longtime collaborator, Spike Jonze, but took it under his wing after Spike chose to take on Where the Wild Things Are. It's scheduled release is late this year. The film also stars Catherine Keener, Michelle Williams, Samantha Morton and Tilda Swinton.

Sebastian Gutierrez (2008 screenplay)
Jo Jo Yuet-chun Hui (2002 original)
Oxide Pang Chun (2002 original)
Danny Pang (2002 original)

Directed by:
David Moreau
Xavier Palud

Starring:
Jessica Alba

Plot synopsis: In this 2008 Hollywood remake of a Japanese film of the same (Jian Gui) name stars Jessica Alba as Sydney Wells, a blind violinist since birth who gets the great fortune of a corneal transplant that allows her to see again. Now adjusting to her new visual life, she starts seeing things other people cant. Dum dum dum!

I have to first state that I saw the original in theaters when I was 19 or 20, and man, one scene in that stuck in my mind forever. My friends would tease me about it for weeks because I literally hoped out of my seat when the terror began. JUST in this one scene.

Most of my friends know I hate Sean Penn (think back to Oscar night, circa Lost in Translation/Mystic River) and I haven't been a fan of Van Sant's work since Good Will Hunting. But I'm not going to say these two don't have any talent and I'm not excited about this film. That would be a lie.

Milk stars Sean Penn as Harvey Milk, California's first openly gay elected official, who was shot down by fellow worker Dan White.

milkemile2.jpg
/film has gotten ahold of what looks like a fake flyer of Sean as Milk, and some paparazzi shots of Emile Hirsch in that cool 70's gear (check out them specs!). Even sporting a wig. And yes, that's Sean on the left all blue jeaned up. Emile plays a gay activist backing Harvey Milk. After seeing Into the Wild (I know, I know), I'll forever be a fan of Mr. Hirsch. Thanks for the doop Academy!

I'm not sure who to blame yet, but Variety reports that Mark Romanek, the talented guy behind One Hour Photo and that kick ass Johnny Cash video HURT, has just dropped out of Universal's big budget remake of Wolfman. Sources report a dispute over the budget (which was $100 million) and creative difference.

Benicio Del Toro fans have kept up with this for some time now, because he has been attached forever and was made for this role. Now it's been halted. Womp. Womp. Get it together Hollywood!

PS Don't tell me that photo of Del Toro doesn't scare the hell out of you.

Fun for all ages(quotes?) is one of those terms that is always greeted with a decent amount of skepticism, especially when it comes to movies. Many people scoff as how can a film simple enough to entertain an eight year old really have enough going on to also capture the mind of an old and weary adult. However, every once and a while a film does indeed come along that grandparents all the way down to elementary students can equally enjoy, usually in the form of a movie that has a both a large amount of fun and smarts. Add a large dose of heart to that winning formula and you have the new film Son of Rambow.

Kids will immediately be drawn to Son of Rambow due to fact the two leads are children. Will Proudfoot (Bill Milner) is the quiet and artistic son of a widow who belongs to the Plymouth Brethren, a religious group who practices a simpler way of life. Will is not allowed to watch TV, even at school he must wait outside when his class watches educational videos. Will is not too bummed about this, as this time in the halls allows him the opportunity to draw whatever he would like. However, one day Will’s doodling in the halls is disturbed when the clever and always scheming Lee Carter (Will Pouter) is set out in the halls for punishment. Despite being very different on the surface, the boys eventually become friends, mostly through Lee’s craftiness and Will’s wholesome gullibility. Soon, a visit to Lee’s home causes Will to accidentally see a pirated copy of Rambo: First Blood. Would you like to guess who videotaped this illegal copy. Of course, it’s that lovable little scamp Lee Carter (haha!). This viewing of Rambo triggers Will imagination, which leads Lee and Will to film a sequel to Rambo, called The Son of Rambow.

Both of the two leads were found during opening casting calls at various schools throughout London, which is a decision that pays off well for the filmmakers as the scenes between the two boys never seem forced or as if they two are only acting like friends. You can tell these kids really had a great time together making the film within the film; these young actors’ joy translates into much fun and laughter for the audience. You can’t help but laugh as the goofy Will goes along with whatever dangerous or silly stunt Lee has in mind for him. Theses scenes will most likely cause the audience members to fondly look back at some of their younger years.

Although the film revolves around two children, adults will find plenty to smile about and keep their attention in the Son of Rambow, as director Garth Jennings brings a refreshing sense of imagination and humor to his latest film. Jennings creates several memorable comedic gags and jokes; there is an especially funny moment involving a flying fake dog and a pair of scissors. Jennings also does a great job of making us remember why it was so great to be a kid with an unspoiled imagination by showing various episodes imagined by Will, including the creation of the plot of his and Lee’s movie.

Son of Rambow might seem like one of those movies that features an idea that would work best as short film or skit but not meant to be stretched into a feature length film. However, the film remains engaging throughout, containing many opportunities for the audience to laugh as they quietly root for the film’s leads to complete their project despite the many obstacles that come in their way, including Will’s religion and the flamboyantly fashionable French exchange student Didier (Jules Sitruk). The filmmakers certainly have a great time harmlessly making fun of the character of Didier, showing just how silly young people can be in their attempts to be cool.

This summer promises many extravagant action sequences and special effects with the release of many big budget studio films, and I’m sure many of these films will be very thrilling and exciting. However, the sweet and enjoyable for everybody film Son of Rambow can serve as a nice heartfelt break for anyone who needs a little breather between this year’s various summer blockbusters.

Director: Sylvester Stallone
Writers: Sylvester Stallone, Art Monterastelli, David Morrell
Studio: Lionsgate

I'm going to make this very brief, because there is only really one main topic you can discuss when it comes to this character.

The final installment of the Rambo series, which was 20 years in the making, finds Rambo being hired by Christian missionaries (lead by the beautiful Julie Benz) to take them by boat to a village in Burma to aid the wounded. Burma is known for being the most dangerous war zones of our time and innocent people are brutally murdered there by the minute. You can already guess what happens next. The group of missionaries get captured and it's up to Rambo to rescue them before it's too late.

In this review, I'm going to discuss simile. I will be comparing RAMBO with TRANSFORMERS. When watching the trailer for RAMBO, you notice he has his arrow steady at his target, and then he begins his speech, "Live for nothing, or die for something!" If you area Rambo fan, you would obviously know this type of film doesn't focus too much on dialogue. The age demographic 40+ will with out a doubt love it though.

So why the TRANSFORMERS comparison? Well, like TRANSFOMERS, you are not going to see RAMBO for some epic dialogue. You went to see TRANSFORMERS to see huge trucks and buses turn into robots and destroy others alike. As for RAMBO you're here to see John Rambo cut heads off, kill people with his bare hands, and "Let the bodies hit the floor" if you payed attention to detail on the trailer.

The one scene that will forever be embedded in my head is when three soldiers throw landmine-like bombs in some muddy trenches, force civilians to run through to the other side as fast as they can, and bet on who will step on the mine first. Sylvester wanted to show the true nature of what's happening daily in Burma, and he did just that. Some might accuse this film as being too brutal, but again, he wants us to know the disgusting things that these Burmese soldiers are doing to the people in surrounding villages.

It is what it is.

The Invasion
theinvasionpostergif.jpeg
Starring: Nicole Kidman, Jeffrey Jones, and Daniel Craig
Directed by: Oliver Hirschbiegel
In yet another needless reworking of Invasion Body of the Snatchers. Alien germs come to earth via a space shuttle and start taking over human bodies. Psychiatrist Carol Bennell (Kidman) realizes what is going on and using her infected son tries to develop a cure for the contaminated people.
The Invasion had a difficult journey to the screen. The film went though two different directors while shooting and several pushed back release dates. Yet, somehow the film still looks unfinished. Both the music and editing are unpolished, and several scenes look like they were just rough cuts never meant be in the final version of the film. Invasion’s stale story is made even less thrilling and moving by the film’s obvious technical flaws. Although the film does feature some of the best Mountain Dew product placement shots ever captured in a feature length film.

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters
king_of_kong1.jpg
Starring: Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchel
Directed by: Seth Gordon
This is a documentary about the world of competitive arcade gaming. The film centers on Steve Wiebe’s journey to top current champion Billy Mitchel’s high score in the arcade game Donkey Kong.
Whoever knew Donkey Kong could be so cutthroat or entertaining? Arcade games may not be your thing but the film’s eccentric characters make this an enjoyable and engaging documentary.

Also being released: Daddy Day Camp, Trade, Bordertown, and The Comebacks

There are still a few bugs to work out and a few more features that will be added as the days pass. The whole concept of the redesign was to make it easier for you to get around the site and locate what you're looking for. Hopefully (within the next few days), we will be able to accomplish that.

A little bit of a warning: If you are using Internet Explorer you're most likely having problems with the website due to the fact that IE doesn't know how to keep up with web standards.

Visually, there is nothing Michel Gondry cannot do with a video camera. He's like the Macguver of movie making. Give him toilet paper and a glass of water and he'll make that into a visual epic. In this new trailer for his upcoming film Be Kind Rewind, he acts/shoots/and edits (swede if you will) everything from the original trailer, which you can watch HERE. I mean, watching Michel successfully reenact both parts of Jack Black and Mos Def is nothing less than brilliance. Enjoy!

"Rated R for strong graphic bloody violence, sexual assaults, grisly images and language."

No shit. I think the first raw trailer of Rambo where he's chopping baddies heads off and ripping out their throats would have been the key indication that this is going to be a violent fun fest, but we now have a chart below giving us a history on previous Rambo films, and the one to come. 236 kills in an hour and a half? Bring on the violence John!

Here they share their love/hate for Superbad. It's their most watched review they've done on YouTube, and after watching, you will understand why.

I am way behind on posting this, but in my defense, I've been in the process of changing jobs, starting classes, and maintaining an unhealthy love life. What does any of that have to do with THE SAVAGES? Let me explain.

THE SAVAGES stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney as Jon and Wendy Savage, siblings who are forced to take care of their aging father who suffers a serious case of dementia. The kicker? None of them have seen each other in years.

The story comes into play when Wendy receives a call that their father, Lenny (Larry Bosco), writes obscene comments with his poop about his wife's caretaker (who he hates) all over the bathroom wall. When his wife dies, the family of the deceased no longer wants Lenny in their home and that's when Jon and Wendy come into the picture. (more...)

It is a sad day in the film community. We were just informed that the talented Heath Ledger was just found dead in a Manhattan apartment, with prescription and over the counter pills found in the room. Police have found no indication of foul play, so a lot of people have already ruled it out as suicide, but Police spokesmans Paul Browne stated, "This is being looked at as a possible overdose, but that is not confirmed yet." It was also confirmed that the pills were not scattered around. NYPD ruled out the rumor that the apt. was owned by Mary-Kate Olsen.

He was just 28 and left behind a two year old daughter, Matilda Rose, and wife, Michelle Williams. Reports state they have been separated for some time now.
