“He's the best there is, but he's a loose cannon.” With that impeccably delivered line, Guy Pearce was built up for sci-fi action hero status in the trailer for the Luc Besson-produced “Lockout.” Europacorp has now followed that statement up with proof, in the form of the film's first five minutes, and they're completely implausible, nonsensically plotted, and oh yeah -- pretty damned entertaining as well.

Remember last fall when Ron Meyer, the president & COO of Universal Pictures, said, "We make a lot of shitty movies. Every one of them breaks my heart"? Well, in the timeliest of fashion, six months later, Meyer has attempted to clarify what he actually meant, which is that yes, sometimes Universal sometimes makes shitty movies (he last cited "The Wolfman," "Cowboys & Aliens" and "Land of the Lost"), however, adding, "we make some good movies and some shitty movies. Nobody ever sets out to make a shitty movie.”

Buddies with Kanye West, connoisseur of fine cuisines, stand-up comedian and all around funny guy, Aziz Ansari continues to delivers laughs as the hapless and horny Tom Haverford on "Parks and Recreation" while continuing to solidfy his street cred by rolling with the Apatow crowd. And while his first major big screen outing in last summer's "30 Minutes or Less" was a bit of a fizzle, for his next round at the multiplex, he'll be surrounded by some good friends with an arsenal of comedic talent and wit to riff off of.
