Manny Ribera: Oh, well what’s coming to you?
Tony Montana: The world, chico, and everything in it.
Ok, everyone, here we go! The second half of the Summer slate for 2013! There’s plenty of big movies in store, and of course, a handful of DOAs.
Click through to check out the second half of this Summer!
When Valentine (Al Pacino) is freed from prison after 28 years, he finds his best friend Doc (Christopher Walken) there to pick him up. What he doesn’t realize is that Doc has also been charged with killing him, as payback for a wrong incurred during the hold-up that got Val sent away all those years ago.
Once he’s out however, Val turns his last day into a real hurrah, and drags Doc along with him. Now Doc is left with a choice to make. Should he kill his best friend? Or embrace this new carpe diem sentiment and get back into the game of life?
Ok, boys and girls. The Holiday Season is over… and the Spring Season, full of mini Blockbusters, is still months away.
Between now and then lies Hollywood’s dumping ground. The Hollywood fields lie fallow in the winter, bearing little quality product. It’s the two months of the year we need to “Get through”. While January typically offers some limited releases from the prior year going wide, there’s typically little else to get excited over.
Will this year be different? Are there any movies to get excited about these next two months? Let’s take a look at the release slate and see what we’ve got!
Last week, I put forward the question – which would you choose, Al Pacino, or Robert De Niro?
They’re two of the greatest actors in history, and almost everyone who commented touched on how difficult a choice it was!
But it needed to be asked, and in spite of everyone saying it was close, the end results weren’t. One of these two walked away with it…

Welcome to the latest “Great Debate”!
This time up, we have a debate that’s been going on as far back as I can remember. Two of the greatest actors of all time… Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.
Being roughly the same age, both of Italian descent, and both incredibly gifted performers, it’s unavoidable that the two would draw comparisons to each other. And they have. Over the course of the past four decades, I don’t think any two actors have been compared and contrasted against each other as much as these two have.
Which one do you choose?

Howdy Everybody! I’m throwing another feature into the mix. We’ll see how quickly I run out of these, or if it degenerates into just a movie poll thread eventually or something… But my intention, at least at the onset here, is to give us a spot to discuss and debate some of the great movie questions of our time.
To start us off? I thought… lets lead with the big one. This is a debate and a discussion that I’ve had several times personally, and I know that people actively take sides. It’s one of the best movie debates ever, because they’re both incredible, incredible movies. Well, I want to hear which side YOU stand on… and why.

It’s dull, it’s dumb, it predictably tries to turn into a “tug at the heartstrings” type movie along the way. Adam Sandler isn’t just ugly as hell in drag, he makes his “sister” character a shrill, annoying, emotionally fragile nightmare of a character.
But maybe I’ve just run out of hyperbole for the weekend, maybe I’m just happy a movie tries to entertain after the waterboarding that was ”J. Edgar”, maybe I’m just happy to still be sane after watching “Immortals”.
Whatever it is, I’m feeling merciful here, sorry if that disappoints anyone.
While it’s FAR from recommendable, by any strecth of the imagination, it’s not the horrifying F minus minus of a movie that I thought it would be.
So. During the blog’s impromptu “Lebowski Fest” the past couple of days, I didn’t get an opportunity to share the news about two upcoming movies I’ve heard about. Both involving gangsters.
The first is a new “Scarface” movie planned by Universal.
The second is an N.W.A. biopic, tentatively titled after their debut album, “Straight Outta Compton”
One of these makes me giddy with anticipation, the other tests my gag reflex. See if you can guess which one is which. The answer, after the break.
