Everly Review

27 February 2015 8:47 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review was originally published during our coverage of Fantastic Fest 2014.

Despite filmmaker Joe Lynch’s intentions, his latest effort, Everly, is destined to be paired with Die Hard for a festive back-to-back TNT double bill, drawing comparisons that may or may not exist. The bigger problem here is America’s response to a female-centric action movie, so intrigued by a concept that’s criminally underused and will probably be offensively exploited by Expendabelles. But that’s why we have Joe Lynch.

He’s pushing boundaries without even knowing it, ushering in a genre movement where ass-kicking leading ladies won’t be met with questions like “Why did you choose to make your protagonist female?” I don’t know, why don’t people ask directors “Why did you choose to make your protagonist male?” whenever Jason Statham movies come out? Lynch created Everly because an idea developed into a tragic story supported by big guns, »

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } With the high-octane action thriller Furious 7 fast approaching its highly-anticipated U.S. Premiere in April, fans will undoubtedly flock to the theater to see Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Dwayne Johnson and the late Paul Walker reprise their roles on the big screen in this next installment to the franchise.

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Top Five British Gambling Movies Ever

23 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This post is brought to you in association with Casino Tropez…

The USA does gambling films like nowhere else. Movies such as Casino (1995), set in the bright lights of Las Vegas, or The Sting (1973), set in an atmospheric Chicago, are testament to this dominance. Yet, there are numerous gambling flicks from UK directors and many that are set in Britain. Here are five of the very best.

 

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998)

This effervescent gambling flick’s humorous script catapulted Jason Statham to international stardom, and revamped the careers of a number of other talents. A disastrous London card game triggers a series of preposterous but highly entertaining events that see four friends get into serious trouble over a mammoth batch of weed, a stack of money and two antique shotguns. Lock, Stock gave director Guy Ritchie an international name that saw him direct many subsequent features – and come to the attention of Madonna, »
