The Dictator Review

The Dictator Studio: Paramount Pictures Publisher: Four By Two Films Format: Cinema Release Date: May 16, 2012 Overview Sacha Baron Cohen’s films have a tendency to take on controversial topics and exaggerate them for comedy.

The Dictator Takes on The Project

It seems that even a Middle Eastern dictator has time to appear on an Australian show, with General Aladeen phoning in on an episode of The Project.

With a sneaky presidential swap that is nowhere near as fun or full of delightful hijinks as it sounds, a full scale attack on Joes world wide, and a whole bun...

New Trailer Released for The Dictator Shows a Softer Side

The Dictator has released a new trailer featuring the hilarious Sacha Baron Cohen in somewhat less military garb. Showing more of the film that includes less dictator-y stuff, and more the stuff that will make up the middle chunk of the movie, and probably cause the dictator to come to somewhat of an epiphany about life, women and America. Still, this trailer shows another dimension to the movie, ...

The Devil Inside Review

The Devil Inside Studio: Insurge Pictures Publisher: Paramount Pictures Format: Cinema Release Date: March 1, 2012 Overview I watched my first exorcist movie, The Exorcist, at the tender age of 13.

Young Adult Studio: Mandate Pictures, Mr. Mudd, Right of Way Films Publisher: Paramount Pictures Format: Cinema Release Date: 19 January, 2012 Overview I have always respected Charlize Theron as an actor for choosing roles that aren’t your typical Hollywood roles, ones that don’t showcase her good looks but instead her acting talent.

Charlize Theron puts the Young in Young Adult

Sit up, Charlize Theron fans, here is another movie from the critically acclaimed and damn gorgeous actress. In a not-so-typical comedy, Theron takes on the role of the unlikeable protagonist who heads back to her home town, making waves as she does and not everyone (in fact, pretty much no one) is happy to see her return. Written by Juno’s Diablo Cody and directed by Up In The Air’s Jason Reitman...
