Don Peyote Anne Hathaway
Well, we'll give co-writer/director Dan Fogler credit for this: he certainly knows how to work a Rolodex. Ordinarily, we probably wouldn't pay a movie titled "Don Peyote" much mind, but when it manages to rope in a rather oddball assortment of people for cameo roles, well, we gave more time out of day than we otherwise would have.

Review: 'Scenic Route' Starring Josh Duhamel And Dan Fogler

Sometimes hardship can bring friends together, and sometimes it can turn them into completely unrecognizable people. So it goes for “Scenic Route,” a micro-budget indie that attempts to refashion two known entities in Josh Duhamel and Dan Fogler into interesting onscreen personas after the former has come across as a listless action figure in loud blockbusters, and the latter a loud, disruptive presence in broad comedies. It’s a credit to the film that we discover the hidden depths inside both actors, though this drastic revision comes with being stuck in the desert for an hour and a half. We learn more about these two performers, but it’s not necessarily worth the effort expended. In other words, moviegoers will not be more drawn to Duhamel and Fogler, but it’s worth noting that both are permitted to become something else.

Even without being massively fond of many of the films produced from his screenplays (not least his pretty bad directorial debut "London Boulevard"), we're fond of William Monahan and his salty dialogue, best embodied in his Oscar-winning script for "The Departed," and we're always hopeful that he'll come up with the goods. So despite our feelings about "London Boulevard," we're hopeful for his follow-up "Mojave," not least because of the cast he's assembling.

To the delight of… well, no one really, it has been reported that Josh Duhamel may be returning for the fourth installment in the bloated “Transformers” franchise. Josh who? Exactly. The untitled “Transformers 4,” scheduled for June 2014 release, looks to retain some of its Golden Raspberry-bait magic in the form of Duhamel, who will be reprising his role as action man-in-chief William Lennox.

It's almost that time again.... Arriving like clockwork, it seems every year or so we get another Nicholas Sparks movie adaptation (in 2010 we were lucky enough to get two movies based on his books!). And for his fanbase that likes to hear a variation on the same mediocre, manipulative story over and and over and over and over again, "Safe Haven" will be a warm, vanilla pillow of familiarity and fake emotion.

50 Cent keeps churning 'em out, and what the fuck does he care if these movies are direct-to-DVD style drivel? Dude makes bank on these things so screw the haterz.

Is there any leading man as non-essential and bland as Josh Duhamel? Say what you will about the Nicholas Sparks adaptations, but so far they've (for the most part) gone with men who at least have some appeal to some spectrum of the female population that drives these things. Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth and even oldies like Kevin Costner and Richard Gere were decent enough choices for their respective films. But who even says, "That Josh Duhamel is soooo cute. Can't wait to see his next movie!"

Call up your grandma, because in case you forgot, Billy Crystal is back to host the Oscars for the ninth time, stepping in replace Eddie Murphy, after the whole Brett Ratner/shrimpgate fiasco. But just to ensure everyone that they are hip and "with it," a new teaser for the show has just dropped rounding up folks that "the kids" like in a somewhat amusing little spot.

Review: Forget About Your Heart, 'New Year's Eve' Just Wants Your Money

If you've managed to make it through two hours of "New Year's Eve" with the idea that it's about anything more than box office returns and home entertainment bank, Warner Bros., New Line and director Garry Marshall are more than happy to set you straight. In a largely unfunny series of credits bloopers, Jessica Biel's character gives birth to twins, and she couldn't be happier to have "Valentine's Day" pop out of her vagina in both DVD and Blu-ray formats (on sale now!). We're not naive enough to imagine that studio films are purely about artistry (and not cynical enough to think that it's never present), but we wish those behind "New Year's Eve" had at least pretended they were trying to entertain us while they rummage through our pockets for loose change.

Two first looks at what are upcoming B-movies? Hard to say, you be the judge. The first is the action thriller "The Expatriate" starring Aaron Eckhart. It's a picture without many stars outside of Olga Kurylenko, and while she's certainly attractive, she's hardly a big star. The film is directed by Philipp Stölzl, a German director known for "North Face," "Young Goethe in Love" and music videos by Garbage, Evanescence and Rammstein.
