‘Jason Bourne’ DVD Review

21 November 2016 12:40 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jason Bourne DVD review: Matt Damon returns to the title role as Paul Greengrass plonks himself back in the director’s chair for one more adventure.

Jason Bourne DVD review, Steve Palace, November 2016.

Director: Paul Greengrass

Starring: Matt Damon, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Riz Ahmed, Julia Stiles

Cert: 12

Running Time: 123 mins

Special Features: Bringing Back Bourne, Las Vegas Showdown featurettes

The last entry in the Bourne franchise was 2012’s The Bourne Legacy starring Jeremy Renner. While that became a one-off, it’s worth examining the character’s true legacy before diving in with this review. The original trilogy helped cement Matt Damon‘s position in Hollywood. Paul Greengrass‘s involvement from part two onwards gave the series an additional layer of quality. More than anything, the films had an impact on movie action in general. When Daniel Craig took the role of 007, it was no coincidence »

We Don’t Need A Female Bond – We Need A Female 00 Agent

8 November 2016 10:28 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Eddy Gardiner doesn’t want to see a female Bond, but he does want to see a female-led 00 movie…

Nope, I’m not trying to be controversial here. I just want to present an idea that I think could actually work pretty well.

In a recent interview with GQ, the excellent Michael Fassbender ended up discussing his potential casting as James Bond, with Daniel Craig’s future in the role in in a perpetual state of uncertainty (I don’t think anyone really knows what’s going on there anymore). Fassbender makes several interesting points – first of all, assuring us that he’s not interested in playing Bond, and that they should go a completely new direction with it. Like casting a much younger Bond, or an American, or, as we’ve heard doing the rounds, a female.

I’m absolutely all for equality. No question. Anyone who knows me knows that. »
