I recently had the chance to sit down for a minute and speak with Steve Downes, better known in gaming circles as the voice of Master Chief. Steve has had a packed career, but he is most famous for his time voicing Spartan 117. In our brief sit-down we touched on how he's adjusted to life after Chief, the transition from Bungie to 343 studios, and a peek behind the curtain on voicing one of Halo 4's most memorable scenes.
Before we get started just wanted to say thank you to the wonderful guys and gals at Gmx (Geek Media Expo) for affording me the opportunity to speak with Steve.
Matt Mueller: Hi Steve, thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me today. As you know, gamers are a pretty dedicated group of fans. With all of your experience in radio and commercials, while much different from games, »

Anchor Bay's action thriller Force of Execution hits Blu-ray and DVD shelves on December 17th, 2013, and we've got 2 clips as well as the box art from the film starring Steven Seagal, Ving Rhames and Danny Trejo. Keoni Waxman directs from the writing by Richard Beattie and Michael Black. Steven Seagal stars as mob kingpin Mr. Alexander, an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality. For a simple prison hit, he sends his best enforcer and protégé Roman Hurst (Foster). But when the hit goes wrong, Hurst is forced to pay the price of his “failure:” banishment in the city that he almost once ruled. But a war is brewing for the soul of the city between Alexander, a cold-blooded gangster known as ‘The Iceman” (Rhames), and a merciless Mexican cartel. Hurst, with the help of an ex-con restaurant owner (Trejo) who has a few hidden moves of his own, »
“Nebraska” star Will Forte returned as Ted Turner to “Conan” Tuesday — and complained that Conan O’Brien is running TBS into the ground. “I founded TBS with one purpose — so people could enjoy Steven Seagal films without the nudity,” Forte-as-Turner said. “The way they were meant to be enjoyed. I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit here and watch my vision ruined by some sickly wig stand.” Also read: ‘Anchorman’ Ron Burgundy Asks Peyton Manning How He Plays Quarterback Without a Mustache (Video) The tough-talking media mogul didn’t mince words with the ginger-haired comic, labeling him a ”deformed Ron Howard, »

Nafissa Jeetoo: Hi Jonathan, I’d like to start by thanking you for taking the time to answer the questions I have in store. And... *applause* well done with Vendetta, a successfully gripping action movie where revenge is best served... Erm...Bloody!! So... who came up with the idea of Vendetta, and why did you make it happen? Be honest... even if this masterpiece stemmed from drunken banter!
Jonathan Sothcott: I had been working with a writer/director called Stephen Reynolds. He sent me a short film called Snowman a couple of years back, which he had ambitions to turn into a feature. It was stylish and I loved the concept, but it was more comic book than Death Wish. But it made enough of »

After a day of giving thanks, eating turkey, and watching TV with the family, a common impulse is to get out of the house and go shopping. Just kidding! Instead of braving the Black Friday brawls, sit back and relax with even more TV marathons. (That’s what Cyber Monday is for, isn’t it?) Standouts include complete(-ish) sets of favorite franchises such as Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars, and Star Trek, as well as guilty-pleasure reality series like House Hunters International and Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta.

Steven Seagal returns as hardbitten undercover cop Elijah Kane for this action-packed thriller. This time he and his team are up against a new wave of criminals, including a militant neo-Nazi gang - the New Hope - trying to ignite civil unrest in Seattle. Meanwhile, Kane's black ops past catches up with him in the form of his ex-comrade Bird, who is identified as a deadly sniper terrorising the city. »
Nothing screams the holidays quite like Steven Seagal phoning in a performance. And while I’m not suggesting that’s the case with “Force of Execution,” the odds are definitely not on his side. Sorry, big guy. I’ve seen “Black Dawn,” “Out of Reach,” and “Out for a Kill” a little under a dozen times each. I know your game inside and out. Written by Richard Beattie and Michael Black and directed by Keoni Waxman, “Force of Execution” finds Seagal portraying a mob boss who eventually squares off against another gangster. At least he’s not playing a former military type who’s out to save the world this time around. That alone is worth a look, I suppose. Here’s how Anchor Bay describes the flick: Steven Seagal stars as mob kingpin Mr. Alexander, an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality. But »

From zombie outbreaks to food poisoning, here's our selection of the 10 unluckiest fictional airline companies in cinema...
You rarely see real-life airline companies in movies, and for good reason - planes in the movies are always being overrun by snakes, art thieves, the undead, and that actor who plays Hercule Poirot.
Film airline companies are so unlucky, in fact, that even the best efforts of Hollywood's finest actors, heart-throbs and action heroes - from Brad Pitt to Bruce Willis, and Jack Lemmon to Mark Hamill - can't stop their planes from dropping out of the sky or getting into some kind of mishap or other.
To this end, here's a far-from-exhaustive look at what we think are the 10 unluckiest airlines in cinema...
Stevens Corporation As seen in: Airport 77 (1977)
You'd be forgiven for thinking that a company with just one passenger jet to its name »

Halo 4, Chrono Trigger, and Metal Gear Solid V. The three titles don't have much in common, other than they were incredibly depicted by artist Tyler Edlin. Looking at Edlin's gallery, he excels at many things beyond just portraits of our favorite video game characters, but that doesn't take away from his work on the prints you see above and below in the gallery. His ability to make the characters pop off the screen while still maintaining some nice detail work in the backgrounds is impressive, and his coloring, specifically his highlight work, is stellar as well. This is represented especially in his Master Chief and Bioshock pieces. The Metal Gear Solid V '80s VHS Cover homage is a lot of fun, and reminds me of way too many viewings of Steven Seagal movies when I was younger.... or if I'm honest ,my latest viewing of Under Siege last month on spike. »

"If you don't maneuver, you'll be out maneuvered. If you're out maneuvered, you will be killed."
Pretty much everybody needs a big dose of badass to prepare for the holiday season, so thank goodness Steven Seagal is here to provide. Starting on December 17th, Force of Execution will be available on Blu-ray and DVD, as well as digital download, and if this trailer is any indication it will be absolutely jam-packed full of action, fight scenes, and mayhem. And Steven Seagal is not the only one bringing the badass. The movie also stars Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo, and martial artist and actor Bren Foster, which sounds like one heck of a good time to us. Check out the trailer and see how many of Steven Seagal's many faces you can spot.
If that trailer wasn't enough to convince you to watch this movie, here's the synopsis:
In the film »
- Mandy McAdoo
Steven Seagal is a man of many talents, and everyone knows he's a martial artist, a movie star, and a producer. But in addition to those things he is also an experienced law enforcement officer, a musician, a director, and a writer. But really, what we love best about him is still the acting. Seagal is a tough, straightforward, no-nonsense guy who plays direct, serious, and pragmatic characters, but he still has the chops to make it through just about any type of scene. We've put together a collection of photographs displaying Seagal's emotional range, and it's nothing short of impressive. For even more Seagal action on Reelz be sure to watch Steven Seagal: Lawman Thursdays at 11pm Et/Pt and catch True Justice weekdays at 1pm Et/Pt.

In the opening moments of 2007's "Grindhouse," an endlessly self-indulgent double-feature experiment by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, there was a trailer for a movie that didn't exist -- at least not yet. That movie was "Machete," and it starred Danny Trejo as a knife-wielding federale-cum-freedom fighter, who gets double-crossed and then goes on a gore soaked-campaign of revenge.
For two minutes, "Machete" was very funny. It was so ridiculously over the top that there was no way that it could ever be a real movie -- full of gratuitous nudity, over-the-top violence, and plot points that seem less like they were scripted and more like they fell out of some lost, incredibly lurid comic book from the 1970s.
But director Rodriguez, who helmed the phony movie ad, thought that it could be something more, so in 2010 he expanded the "Machete" trailer into an actual, feature-length goof. It had a surprisingly solid cast (including, »

Review Matt Edwards 7 Oct 2013 - 06:37
You probably already have an idea of whether you’re going to enjoy a Machete film. The first film served to expand on the trailer created for Grindhouse, the 2008 collaboration between Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. Wildly over the top, knowingly silly and spectacularly violent, Machete managed to pack some surprises into a film that was created after its own highlight reel.
So, after the trailer and the first film, we’re already familiar with the cinematic language of Machete. We know how it looks, we know the tone, we know the character and we know to expect the unexpected. The question we have for Machete Kills, then, is how do you give an audience the unexpected when they’re already expecting it? »
Director: Ivan Sen.
Running Time: 112 minutes.
Synopsis: An Aboriginal cop returns to his home town to investigate the murder of a teenage girl, facing corruption and prejudice along the way.
If the idea of a man with less facial expressions than a sleeping Steven Seagal, moping about dusty hills, sort of looking for things appeals to you, then you’re in luck. Mystery Road is a paint-by-numbers murder mystery, with all the paint being various shades of drab. The only mystery on this road is why the producers thought it would be worth anybody’s attention.
Aaron Pederson plays Detective Jay Swan, an Aborigine cop facing red tape and prejudice in his quest to find the killer of a little girl against the stark landscape of the outback. It’s an interesting concept that fails to work for a number of reasons, »

Whether it’s a thirty-something slaving over their grad school film criticism or slouchy couch potatoes who enjoy Criterion Collection’s extra features more than the films themselves, there’s a considerable number of us “cineastes” (that’s what pretentious people who love movies call themselves) who love the movies no one else can love.
When you ask what kind of movies we love, we don’t reply with action or anything Jennifer Aniston. We’ll answer, with confidence, Italian Neo-Realism, D.W. Griffith’s silents, the Iranian New Wave, or Third Cinema. I’m starting to bore myself.
Whether or not you’re a populist; whether or not Steven Seagal’s tiny eyes represent the epitome of badassness; whether or not you wish the Hugh Grant rom-coms of yore would resurface with new-found relevance, you’re allowed to love the movies you love. And you probably love them even more »

Now that the kids have gone back to school, things have gotten relatively quiet in the streaming wars. One thing that alarms though is in looking at the list below, you see the usual titles from late last year being added to Now TV, Lovefilm etc, but where is the new stuff on Netflix? Sure they have added some good catalogue stuff but Gambit is their only title? Really?
It’s not looking good for Netflix which sucks because as I have said before, their software and its reliability and ease of use would mean they would have this war all sewn up if they could just land the big films the way Lovefilm and Now TV are doing, The Hobbit and Breaking Bad are their only recent big wins since Orange is the New Black. With the other big ones averaging at least one huge new title a week, »
