If there was ever a more ambitious film than "The Butler," we have yet to discover it.
"Precious" director Lee Daniels efforts to recapitulate — through the real-life eyes of a lone, stolid White House butler — pretty much the entire twentieth century as it related to the American Civil Rights Movement. With a cast list that reads like a flat-out roll call for the Walk of Fame, Daniels presents the working life of Cecil Gaines (real name: Eugene Allen), a man who served eight consecutive U.S. presidents during his career and witnessed history being made first-hand.
The first trailer for "The Butler" has now been released, and boy oh boy are we impressed with all the acute caricaturing going down here ... and all the feels we feel. Get More »

A bunch of World War II flying aces stepped out on the red carpet on Tuesday night as the cast and crew of "Red Tails" attended the film's New York City premiere.
Ne-Yo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Method Man, Spike Lee, James Earl Jones and even George Lucas himself were at the Ziegfeld Theater to celebrate the film that showcases the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African American U.S. pilots that were suddenly called into service after being kept mostly on the ground during the war.
Check out our gallery of pics from the premiere and go flying with "Red Tails" when it hits theaters on Jan. 20.
"How to survive in South Central/A place where bustin' a cap is fundamental/No, you can't find the s**t in a handbook/Take a close look, at a rap crook." – Ice Cube
Long before Cuba Gooding Jr. was asking Tom Cruise to show him the money, or rapper Ice Cube was driving kids across country in an SUV, they were fightin' 2 survive in the hood.
"Boyz 'N the Hood" is the landmark 1991 film that put South Central on the map, sparked a nationwide discussion about gang violence, and turned a 23-year-old writer/director named John Singleton into a bonafide Hollywood player. This year marks the movie's 20th anniversary, and in honor of the Blu-ray release we're going to take a look back at one little movie that tried to increase the peace. Get More »
"Inception" parodies. We try to get out, but they keep PULLING US BACK IN! Seriously, this will definitely be the last spoof of Christopher Nolan's sci-fi thriller we talk about... until the next one.
