Movie Review: Forest Whitaker a Witness to History in ?The Butler?

That's Apple's latest marketing effort marketing tease, really for the to-be-released redesign of its Mac Pro. The company is slapping teasers for the cylindrical computer as part of a movie theater advertising push, publishing the fact that the updated system is expected to arrive in fall of this year. We don't have a copy of the movie theater ad, but we've embedded Apple's original teaser from this year's WWDC at the bottom of this post if you'd like a little visual refresh of the unique tweaks Apple's made to the Mac Pro. While it's unclear as to what Apple's Mac Pro might ultimately cost, be prepared to spend a not-so-insignificant amount if you're interested in picking up one of the systems. It's been widely reported that the raw cost of materials within the system itself the entry-level edition, as it were could come in at just around $2,800. Expect the price to skyrocket north for any upgrades to storage, memory, or the system's CPU that potential purchasers might want to pick up.

Movie review: 'The Butler' gives White House servant's view of times from Eisenhower to Obama

Arriving dramatically midvisit is Capt. East (Ricky Whittle), a soft-porn actor with the hots for another guest (Georgia King), and theres a stableboy/chauffeur (Bret McKenzie) who views this all with a jaded eye. Theyre all actors, so Janes romance with any of them will be fictional until, of course, it isnt. There could have been a wonky, feminist-style Truman Show savviness laid beneath the story or even a creepy Fantasy Island angle, which would have been compelling. As it is, Austenland is as thin as a doily. Russell, who has more presence in small works (Waitress) than in larger ones (Mission: Impossible 3), gives it her all, but if not for Coolidges occasionally inspired outbursts, the movie would wilt even faster than it does.

There are enough beauty shots of Hemsworth to fill every fashion pages in GQ for an entire year. And I have to give it to them at least on that front the film delivers. Hemsworth sweats through workouts, dresses down in worn flannel shirts and jeans for bar scenes, spiffs up in designer suits to fool Goddard and, best of all, gets tangled up in the sheets with a high-tech honey named Emma ( Amber Heard ). The camera lingers on as much of that toned-to-perfection 6-foot-3 frame as it can and still hang on to that R. The quote-unquote paranoia is supposed to come from Wyatt's evil intentions and the technology that is tracking every move Adam makes. Wyatt sets him up in a modernist dream apartment, the better to plant the young man inside Goddard's organization.

Becoming Steve Jobs: Ashton Kutcher on his movie transformation

Kennedy. Oprah Winfrey plays Gloria, Cecils attention-starved wife. In case you forgot after all, Kim Kardashian sunglasses its been 15 years since she last appeared in a live-action film as someone other than herself Oprah can, indeed, act. Lets also not forget that she was nominated for an Oscar in 1986 for her work in The Color Purple, and it certainly doesnt hurt this film that that the majority of her scenes are with fellow Oscar-nominee Terrence Howard and Oscar-winner Whitaker. While we see the civil rights movement through the lens of the White House, the brutality and humanity of it all is brought to life through Cecils son, Louis, played by David Oyelowo, who is always a treat to watch.

?Austenland,? movie review

and Lenny Kravitz are perfect as part of Cecil's workplace circle. None other than Clarence Williams III, fondly remembered as Linc on "The Mod Squad" and here something of a mentor to young Cecil, scolds the teen for using the N-word. "Don't you ever use that word! It's a white man's word. It's filled with hate." Directed by Mr. Daniels ("Precious") and written by Danny Strong ("Recount," "Game Change"), "The Butler" takes liberties with the original real-life story penned by Wil Haygood in The Washington Post in November 2008. The names of the butler and his wife were Eugene and Helene Allen and they had one son, not two, for starters. Kim Kardashian bio

Movie review: 'Paranoia' has bells and source whistles but glitches too

"He had the mannerisms; he'd studied hundreds of hours. He knew from that first meeting that I needed to take away evidence that he could play the part." Kutcher's total immersion into the character was so complete that Stern walked away from the actor with newfound respect. "He studied the guy; he lived in his skin every day, which wasn't the easiest place to live, and I really respect him quite a bit. He gave everything he had, and more than anything I knew that this role was important to him. And when something's important to you no matter what you do, you're going to give it everything you have." Despite those efforts, "jOBS" has faced criticism ahead of its release date, from Kutcher's casting on down. The biopic was originally slated to bow in April, but was bumped back to August reportedly so the studio could have a longer marketing push. Reviews, thus far, have been mixed, and then there are those questioning its timing.
