While watching the new trailer for Katie Holmes’ upcoming thriller, Miss Meadows, one question immediately springs to mind: why has it taken this long for Holmes to holster her inner badass? Harnessing a deadpan line delivery and keen familiarity with firearms, she looks like she’s aiming for a new career trajectory altogether. And it’s one that’s very, very welcome.
In the flick, Holmes stars as a prim and proper schoolteacher. From the dolly shoes and twee dresses, she’s an idyllic vision of the perfect educator. Except she’s harbouring a secret: she quite likes taking out street scum. Yes, if a spoonful of sugar won’t help the medicine go down, then maybe a few rounds ought to do the trick. Her desire to keep the town a safe place to live means she’s not hesitant when it comes to restoring order in her own outlaw fashion. »

Played by Katie Holmes, this prim and proper elementary school looks so sugar-sweet, bluebirds literally follow her around while she tap-dances down the street. But what her community doesn’t know […]

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

"Kind of a Pulp Fiction, Mary Poppins." That line in the new trailer for the quirky thriller Miss Meadows sums it up rather perfectly, but somehow we don't think the film will measure up to either of those revered films. Katie Holmes plays a wholesome, charming school teacher who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty when the opportunity calls for it. Delivering justice with a tiny little pistol she keeps for her purse, she's ready to keep the bad guys away from her children and the nice town in which she lives. But can she keep her secret from the local law enforcement, including the sheriff played by James Badge Dale? Watch!
