Film Review: ‘The World Made Straight’

Film Review: ‘The World Made Straight’
Longtime “Survivor” producer David Burris’ feature directing debut, “The World Made Straight,” is an adaptation of Ron Rash’s 2006 novel about some hard-luck folk in 1970s rural Appalachia. This evenly paced drama holds interest with its uneasy character dynamics, interesting milieu and effective performances, though a story so frequently on the verge of violence ought to build more tension than Burris manages, while flashback elements that presumably worked on the printed page feel awkwardly integrated here. Ultimately a solid if not completely successful effort comparable to such recent backwoods coming-of-age character studies as “Winter’s Bone” and “Joe,” the pic launches theatrically and on VOD Jan. 9. The cast’s more familiar names should steer it toward a modest payoff, primarily in home formats.

Fired from his supermarket cashier job when he lets a poor customer leave without paying, 17-year-old high-school dropout Travis Shelton (Jeremy Irvine) is understandably moody and gruff:

'The Walking Dead' Recap: Glenn & Maggie Reunite, Daryl's Group Hunts Down Rick

The Walking Dead had a slightly lighter mood this week – following last week’s shocking episode in which two young girls met their ends – with “Us,” the penultimate episode of the series’ fourth season.

The Walking Dead Recap

As the episode opened, Glenn (Steven Yeun), Tara (Alana Masterson), Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Rosita (Christian Serratos) and Eugene are making their way towards Terminus. After a long day of travel, in which supposed genius Eugene rambles on to Tara about his theories regarding zombie dinosaurs and video games, she and Abraham keep watch. In small talk, Abraham suggests that Tara has a thing for Glenn, despite the fact that she’s helping him get back to his wife, Maggie (Lauren Cohan). The truth is, she’s still wracked with guilt for arriving at the Prison with the Governor.

The following day, Eugene gets Tara’s ear again, going on and on about batteries.

Exclusive: Red-Band New Clip from Homefront with Jason Statham – ‘Stand by the Car’

  • HeyUGuys
After arriving in Us cinemas over the weekend, the Jason Statham-led action-thriller Homefront will be touching down on our shores this Friday, returning Statham to our screens for an impressive fourth* time this year.

With the film heading into our cinemas in just a few days’ time, Lionsgate have treated us to exclusively share this new clip with you. And when you take Kate Bosworth’s language into consideration, you can see why it’s not quite suitable for work.

Homefront stars Jason Statham as former drug enforcement agent, Phil Broker, a family man who moves off the grid with his daughter, to a seemingly quiet bayou backwater to escape his troubled past. However, Broker’s world soon becomes anything but quiet once he discovers that an underbelly of drugs and violence riddles the small town. Soon, a sociopathic methamphetamine kingpin, Gator Bodine (James Franco) puts Broker and his

Homefront review

Review Duncan Bowles 2 Dec 2013 - 06:49

Jason Statham's third film of 2013 also happens to be his best, Duncan writes, in his review of the exciting action flick, Homefront...

If there’s one man in the film industry who truly understands and supports the evolution of Jason Statham’s career, it’s Sylvester Stallone. Back in 2009, Statham already had two of his own cinematic franchises established, having just completed the second Crank film and had three Transporter movies under his belt, making him one of the few actors keeping the old-school action genre alive.

It was no surprise then, that Stallone hand picked him to co-star in The Expendables, in what always felt like a generational baton passing – not only had Sly recognised Statham’s work and dedication, but set him up with a franchise for life. Sure, The Expendables might cease production in the next few years either due

Film Review: ‘Homefront’

Film Review: ‘Homefront’
“It’s a bit like Appalachia: You can go from two kids in a fistfight to the emergency room real fast,” advises one concerned citizen in “Homefront,” a tale of backwoods retribution that resembles Roman Polanski’s “Carnage” transplanted to “Deliverance” country, where feuding parents prefer outright war to wars of words. But what sounds like a veritable B-movie wet dream — with that master of the subzero scowl, Jason Statham, starring in a screenplay written by Sylvester Stallone — turns out to be considerably less than the sum of its parts: a listless programmer in the “Walking Tall” mode, minus the ebullient spark of Statham’s “Crank” and “Transporter” franchises and Stallone’s own “Expendables” pics. Offered as Thanksgiving counter-programming by distrib Open Road, the pic may carve up modest biz with the shoot-your-own-turkey crowd, but should be available as a stocking stuffer by Christmas.

The ever-prolific Stallone (who has “Escape Plan
