Lindsay Lohan in “Scary Movie 5.”
If your life has become a joke, you may as well get paid for it, right?
That’s what looks to be the case for tabloid-regulars Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan in this new clip for “Scary Movie 5.”
Don’t know about you all, but I’m not even remotely anticipating this one so with super low expectations, it could be a pleasant surprise when it comes out April 12.

It’s a unique experience watching “Dr. No” for the first time in 2013. My first exposure to the James Bond franchise was 1983’s “Never Say Never Again,” Sean Connery’s final stint as 007. At 52, Connery may have been a bit too old by that point, but with no other frame of reference, I thought he was the coolest secret agent ever so it was fascinating watching his first turn in his most iconic role.
Fifty years from its 1962 release it’s astonishing how well the film holds up and is every bit as engaging, suspenseful and entertaining as any of the more recent editions to the Bond mythos with bigger budgets, more expansive sets and exhilarating stunts. More

Jordan Turner (Halle Berry) in TriStar Pictures thriller “THE CALL.”
Under absolutely no circumstances should you answer “The Call.” Hang up, iDivert, ignore whatever you need to do. Just act like the new Halle Berry thriller/drama doesn’t exist.
More frustrating is that sense that somewhere buried in all this wreckage is a decent idea that could have made for a good thriller. Yet now I’m writing this public service announcement masquerading as a movie review to warn you not to ever waste valuable moments of your life even considering watching my favorite to win Worst Movie of the 2013.

“Dead Man Down” is a revenge thriller that aspires to be more than your average revenge thriller and surprisingly succeeds. More

ROBERT PATTINSON and KRISTEN STEWART star in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN-PART 2
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – Some people will hate on this series just because it seems like the thing to do, but for those who can lay off the sarcasm triggers long enough, this final installment of the “Twilight:” series was a lot of fun with one of the best fake-out scenes I’ve seen in years. This also has a special release date so instead of the normal Tuesday, it’s coming out this Friday just in case you were planning on camping out in front of Best Buy or Target to get it tomorrow.

Halle Berry in TriStar Pictures thriller “THE CALL..”
Beyond an amazingly uninspired title, I’m very excited about checking out Halle Berry’s new film. “The Call.”
When veteran 911 operator, Jordan (Halle Berry), takes a life-altering call from a teenage girl (Abigail Breslin) who has just been abducted, she realizes that she must confront a killer from her past in order to save the girl’s life. More

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in “Marvel’s The Avengers.”
Best 12 months for a rising star – Chris Hemsworth. From “The Cabin in the Woods” to “Marvel’s The Avengers” to “Snow White and the Huntsman,” Hemsworth had a year that would be a career for some actors. Even when he’s involved in a turd like “Red Dawn,” he shrugs it off and gets to work on sequels for “Thor,” “The Avengers 2” and “Snow White and the Huntsman.” We should all have such stable career outlooks.

Alice (Milla Jovovich) admires her work in “RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION.”
If you’re not already a fan of the “Resident Evil” franchise, there’s nothing in “Resident Evil: Retribution” that should or would change your mind.
But for those of us who know what we’re in for with the series, the fifth installment is for better or worse, more of the same — albeit with the familiar levels of ridiculousness from its maddeningly inconsistent Director/Writer Paul W.S. Anderson. More

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis as “Joe” in TriStar Pictures, Film District, and End Game Entertainment’s action thriller “LOOPER.”
Of all the movies coming out Friday, “Looper” is easily my most anticipated as it features one of my longtime favorites in Bruce Willis and one of my rising favorites in Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a science-fiction film with a unique concept that looks like a lot of fun. More

Barricade, Big Brother, Eric McCormack, The Amazing Race, WWE Films
I love scavenger hunts. It’s one of those things that somehow we get away from doing once we become “grown-ups.” It’s probably why “The Amazing Race” is such a hit and why I’ll be eagerly watching the 2012 season starting Sunday even without “Big Brother” cast members to lure me in. Although I would PAY to watch Season 12 alumni Enzo and Lane (Brigade) compete!
WWE Films is taking that childhood love and tapping into social media for a fun, original contest where you can find its latest DVD, “Barricade,” possibly in a city near you. More
