Cast a fleeting glance over Dwayne Johnson’s IMDb page at any given time and you’ll no doubt lay eyes on a slate crammed full of tentpole blockbusters – whether it’s upcoming creature feature Rampage or something more family-oriented in the vein of Sony’s Jumanji sequel.
In tracing back through the wrestler-turned-actor’s career – one that shot into the stratosphere following Fast Five – you’ll also stumble upon a handful of low-key action movies including Walking Tall and Peter Berg’s The Rundown. For years, Berg has been trying to engineer some form of follow-up to the latter, and it appears the Deepwater Horizon helmer has zeroed in on his candidate of choice for The Rundown 2: Jonah Hill.
Back in 2003, the original cult actioner featured The Rock as a musclebound bounty hunter assigned with a gig that involved locating his boss’ wayward son (Seann William Scott). Also »

Dwayne Johnson’s been on a lot of minds lately. The actor was recently dubbed the highest paid actor in Hollywood for 2016 by Forbes, and for the past couple years has roughly attached himself to no less than ten separate franchises (that may or may not be an exaggeration). Given all the news surrounding the actor, my mind recently wandered to one of his first big project back in the early 2000s: The Rundown.
This was an action comedy film that starred Johnson in the lead role for the first time (he was still being credited as “The Rock” at the time), and co-starred Sean William Scott, Rosario Dawson, and Christopher Walken. Back then, I remember the conversation largely being if the Rock could actually lead a film. At that point, he’d had some experience in TV shows, a minor role in The Mummy Returns, as well as a »

Richard Kelly is very much a case of a bright talent burning out before it really gets a chance to flourish.
Kelly hit the high mark right out of the gate with his mind-bending debut Donnie Darko (2001), which despite being a box office failure, won high praise and has since become a cult hit, as well as making a star out of its leading man Jake Gyllenhaal in the process.
It didn’t hurt that it helped bring renewed fame to the Tears for Fears classic Mad World as covered by Gary Jules, which has scored all manner of depressing montages and adverts ever since, and became subsequently the most depressing Christmas No. 1 in UK chart history.
So given that he started his career on a high, filmgoers had even higher »

14 years the Ice Age franchise has been going on. Almost makes you feel old. The first Ice Age was a lovely little gem with smart, witty dialogue, a simple but emotionally engaging story, and great characters. From Blue Sky Studios, it was refreshing to see a company previously known for handling special effects, step-up for Fox and take on Pixar, Dreamworks and Disney. With every one of their films at least doubling their budgets, and the last two Ice Age films hitting close to $900 million, they are certainly a monetary success. But alas, the heart of the original has gone, and whereas before it wanted to create memorable memories for your child, now it just wants to »

Maya & Marty on Tuesday was pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good just Ok.
The penultimate hour of the Peacock’s variety experiment featured Jerry Seinfeld’s sit-down with Jiminy Glick and Martin Short doing his (best?) Larry David impersonation. (Fun fact: This evening marks the 27th anniversary of Seinfeld, so it was quite fitting that the comedian put in an appearance on his former network.)

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Will Forte revived his fan-favorite Saturday Night Live character as a third-party presidential candidate. The formal announcement gave Calhoun, a very poor public speaker, the chance to clarify where he stands on a number of polarizing issues, such as the fight against Isis ices and his willingness to elect a “China person” to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Although on the job his character is as tough as they come, after hours, he gets bossed around by his mother and — yikes! — seven big sisters.
