Alan (Zach Galifianakis), Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Stu (Ed Helms) in “The Hangover Part III.”
“The Hangover Part III” will be my 2013 example of why it’s better to just give the public what they need, not what they say they want.
In a summer that’s been filled thus far with largely underwhelming sequels, “The Hangover III” may be the most disappointing simply because it’s so uninspired and completely lacking the fun, spontaneous spirit of its predecessors. More

There hasn’t been a better one-two comedy franchise than “The Hangover,” the best boys behaving badly franchise of all time.
And as we gear up for the final installment of “The Hangover Part III” this weekend and one last round of mayhem with The Wolfpack — Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Alan (Zack Galifianakis) — here’s a look at their greatest hits.
And all of it is oh so NSFW without speakers.

Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence) and Pat (Bradley Cooper) make a deal.
Silver Linings Playbook - Of all the Oscar contenders, this had the biggest actor’s showcase and recognition as it received nominations in all four acting categories: Best Actor (Bradley Cooper), Best Supporting Actress (Jackie Weaver), Best Supporting Actor (Robert De Niro) and Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence. The film is a fascinating character study of a man (Cooper) recently discharged from a mental institution looking to get his life back on track and reunite with his wife. But life back home with his parents gets even more complicated when he encounters a woman (Lawrence) who can relate to him in a way he never thought possible. More

from Julian Edelman’s Twitter page
I want to make a point on the site to try and note all of these instances of celebrities taking advantage of their status not to get court side seats, free stuff and VIP treatment everywhere since I care about this a lot more than who they’re dating and what they’re wearing.
WVCB first reported that Silver Linings Playbook star Bradley Cooper, along with New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, paid a hospital visit to a spectator at the Boston Marathon who lost both legs in the blast.
This entire Boston bombing incident sucks. I’m glad to see stories like this, but I wish this kind of crap was just some outlandish movie premise and not stuff we have to face in the real world.

2013 FF: Figure this was an appropriate day to post this one, no? I love these ensemble comedies and all their consistently moving parts. This one is more worthy of a “guilty pleasure” tag, but I enjoy it every time I watch it. Here’s my look back: More

Ryan Gosling stars as Luke in Derek Cianfrance’s “The Place Beyond the Pines.”
Here’s the first pictures and trailer for the new Ryan Gosling/Bradley Cooper drama “The Place Between the Pines.” My initial thought is how much I hate Gosling’s hair for this one, but his cool scar almost makes up for it.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner at the SAG Awards.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards were held last night and Ben Affleck’s “Argo” is strengthening its position as the Oscar favorite now after winning the SAG for best ensemble. This adds to “Argo’s” trophy case of AFI’s Movie of the Year; both the Golden Globes and Broadcast Film Critics Association awards for Best Picture and Best Director and the Producer Guild Award’s Best Picture. Just a month ago, it seemed to be a lock for either Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” or Kathryn Bigelow’s “Zero Dark Thirty” to capture the top prize, but now “Argo” appears to have seized all the momentum on the road to the Oscars.
Here are the SAG winners and pictures from the red carpet: More

Annabel (Jessica Chastain) tries to protect Lilly (Isabelle Nelisse) and Victoria (Megan Charpentier) in “Mama.”
1. Mama – $31 million [debut week] Jessica Chastain proved to be an undeniable draw for a second consecutive week as her thriller in the woods beat out new films from former bankable draws Mark Wahlberg and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Guillermo del Toro-produced thriller’s creepy trailers struck a mark with audiences clearly looking for a scare. Speaking of bankable, the film has already earned back its $15 million budget so Chastain is proving she can draw audiences from numerous demographics. She’s probably Hollywood’s most in-demand leading lady now. More
