The Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz starrer Knight and Day is released on UK DVD and Blu-Ray on December 13. I have not actually managed to catch the flick as yet, but am looking forward to reviewing the release for the site later this week.
In the film, Cruise plays Roy Miller, a secret agent who must fight for his life, killing anyone who may get in his way. That is, anyone except for June Havens (Cameron Diaz), a dashing woman Miller finds himself fawning over. Together they take on an army of special forces experts, relying solely on their love for each other, and an array of very big guns, to stay alive.
Knight and Day, directed by James Mangold, is Cruise’s latest action comedy and a return to his unmatched on-screen romances. Here are a few other action films that feature great chemistry between unusual couples.

The preview footage of Tron: Legacy is visually jaw-dropping – but can it retain the original's makeshift appeal?
The original Tron remains something of a curio, 28 years on from its release. While it pioneered computer special effects ridiculously early, Tron never achieved blockbuster status, and never really felt as though it wanted to. With its cool but lo-fi virtual world inhabited by geeky neon warriors – programs who looked like human beings – it was a nerd's dream, but perhaps a little too far out to really capture kids' imaginations. Instead, it ended up being one of those cult 80s movies that is endlessly referenced but rarely watched, though a viewing will swiftly remind anyone who takes the time that Jeff Bridges has always been an actor with unusual charisma.
The arrival of sequel Tron: Legacy is not something anyone could really have predicted. Geeky fanboys may have been hankering for a second »

Thanks to Ridley Scott and James Cameron, the bar has been set for heroines in the sci-fi genre: She sucked the xenomorph out of the airlock in Alien and killed the queen with the power loader in Aliens - certifiable badass. Since then, there has been a long line of female heroes, from Linda Hamilton.s Sarah Connor in The Terminator to Carrie-Ann Moss. Trinity in The Matrix. Perhaps next in that long line will be Mary Elizabeth Winstead.s Kate Lloyd. While visiting the set of Matthijs van Heijningen Jr..s The Thing this past summer in Toronto, Winstead, sporting a black tank-top and a fake cut on her forehead, sat down with us journalists to discuss her personal feelings about the original John Carpenter film, the lack of a romance, and wielding a flamethrower to try and get rid of the alien menace. Are you almost done? Almost, »
This is the UK competition for Memento, directed by Christopher Nolan (Inception, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight) and starring Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss and Joe Pantoliano. Leonard Shelby (Pearce; L.A. Confidential, The Time Machine) remembers everything up to the night his wife was brutally raped and murdered. However, since that tragedy, he has suffered from short-term memory loss and cannot recall any event, the places he has visited or anyone he has met just minutes before. Determined to find out why his wife was killed, the only way he can store evidence is on scraps of paper, by taking Polaroid photos and tattooing vital clues on his body. One of the most memorable films of all time, you can re-visit Memento ten years on in high-definition Blu-ray from 6 September 2010 and, to celebrate, Pure Movies is giving away three copies! »

Hey friendo's. Brian Gallagher here with a look at all the news that wasn't fit for print in the past seven days. We've got plenty of goodies to get to this week so let's start with another movie invention that is becoming a reality.
Nike To Make Self-Lacing Shoes From Back To The Future Part II - via MSNBC.com
Back in May there was news that some genius actually invented a real-life hoverboard like the one Michael J. Fox uses in Back To The Future Part II. Now MSNBC.com reports that Nike is actually making self-lacing shoes similar to those shown in Back To The Future Part II as well. It was said that Nike has filed a patent for the shoes and, while it wasn't said when these shoes will hit the market, they are working on the technology. Take a look at this confusing image below: »
Some movies simply demand repeat viewings, and a second watch often reveals new details you’d missed the first time. Here’s our pick of ten movies that deserve to be watched twice…
The vast majority of films produced are made purely for money, and this isn't really all that surprising when cash is still very much considered king in Hollywood. Nevertheless, every now and then a film comes out that commands your attention, engages your senses, and stays with you for quite sometime after it's finished.
Some call it art, others proclaim it the work of a genius and some, rather more simply, refer to it as a decent film. Either way, it doesn't really matter how you label them, one simple fact unites them all: some films are so good you have to see them at least twice, whether it's to understand the complexities of the plot, or »
Many things can make a great opening scene.
A film can open with a shock, a fast paced action sequence, a gripping voice-over, a moment of comedy or so many other possibilities. Opening scenes can help define your experience with a film and the best opening scenes can pin you to your seat excited about what the next two hours may bring.
In a new and occasional feature the writers at HeyUGuys will select some of their favourite opening sequences and talk about why they love them so much. We’d also love you to get involved so feel free to leave comments or contact us in all the usual ways to let us know what your favourites are. The third opening sequence in our series is one that left me breathless and is one of my favorites.
When asked a while back what my favorite most memorable opening scenes were, »

This should be a quick and painless one!
What a silly exercise Unthinkable is. When we last visited the film, we wondered why its distribution company bypassed a theatrical release, in favor of a direct-to-home video strategy. Well, I can say, unequivocally, after watching the film, that I know exactly why.
It’s just not very good! In fact, for a film centered on material of such gravity, it’s more comical than it likely intended to be. I laughed. A lot. From Samuel L. Jackson’s usual obnoxious screaming-man routine, to the film’s preposterous setups, horrible, hackneyed dialogue, and ringing endorsement for torture, I’m not certain what exactly drew the film’s impressive cast to the material. It’s just absurd.
Those who support the film will likely argue that it’s a complex look at the torture debate, and what this country is willing to do to protect its citizens, »
DVD Playhouse—June 2010
The White Ribbon (Sony) On the eve of Ww I, a small village in Germany is struck by a series of tragic, seemingly unconnected events until the townspeople, and the audience, start to connect the dots. Shot in stark, beautiful black & white, director Michael Haneke has fashioned a haunting metaphorical drama that is as coldly chilling as anything made by Ingmar Bergman, and darkly unsettling as anything from the canon of David Lynch. A rich, tough, brilliant cinematic experience you’re not likely to forget. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bd bonuses: Interviews with cast and crew; featurettes. Widescreen Dolby and DTS 5.1 surround.
Alice In Wonderland (Disney) Tim Burton’s take on the Lewis Carroll classic finds young Alice (Mia Wasikowska), a 19th century girl who finds herself in an unhappy engagement to a boorish suitor, tumbling down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where she encounters magical cakes, »

Chicago – Samuel L. Jackson is an A-list actor stuck in the persona of a B-movie crowd-pleaser. His preference for schlock has made it difficult for viewers to take him seriously in roles that aren’t intended to be quoted by fanboys at Comic-Con. When his formidable interrogator in “Unthinkable” declares, “What I have to do, Agent Brody, is…unthinkable,” the line hits the exact wrong note of credibility-killing cheese that has marred Jackson’s career.
Of course, Jackson cannot be solely blamed for the multitude of flaws in the direct-to-video thriller “Unthinkable.” Director Gregor Jordan (“The Informers”) and screenwriter Peter Woodward (“Closing the Ring”) continue their slump into forgettable mediocrity by squandering a powerful and topical premise that has been tackled in a variety of recent pictures (the most memorable being “The Dark Knight”). It asks the obvious question of how a war on terror can be won without America »
