Top 10 Duncan Bowles 4 Dec 2013 - 06:45
Duncan salutes his personal choice of the 2013 action movies that deserved just a little more love...
This article contains spoilers for each of the films mentioned. Not necessarily big ones, but you might want to steer clear of The World's End entry if you've not seen that.
2013 has been a great year for action. We’ve had multiple comic book heroes fighting it out on the big screen, with Thor and Iron Man continuing Marvel’s run of great movies, the return of the R-rated antics of Kick-Ass and at long last an F-bomb loaded, bloody incarnation of The Wolverine (though it’s worth pointing out that the unrated edition in the UK only comes with the 3D version of the home release, a trend I hope doesn’t continue).
From a sci-fi angle, we’ve had robots fighting monsters in Pacific Rim and »

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2000, and another 25 overlooked gems...
The new millennium brought with it an eclectic range of hit films. Hong Kong action director John Woo brought us Mission: Impossible II, the most profitable film of the year at the box office. Ridley Scott enjoyed one of the biggest critical and financial successes of his career with Gladiator, while Robert Zemeckis created a memorable drama with Tom Hanks and a ball named Wilson in Cast Away.
From a comic book movie standpoint, 2000 was also a key year. X-Men not only established a successful film franchise which is still going, with X-Men: Days Of Future Past out next year, but also headed up a wave of big-budget Marvel adaptations which shows no sign of slowing down.
As ever, we've travelled far outside the »
It is nearly 20 years since Lovejoy, the adventures of the roguish (but loveable) antiques dealer played by Ian McShane last graced our screens, but could it be ripe for a comeback? "Sky talked about it last year," said McShane, now better known for the rather more post-watershed western, Deadwood. "I said, 'If you're serious about it, why not make it about Lovejoy's daughter this time?'" McShane told the new issue of Radio Times. "And maybe I could do guest appearances on an antique Zimmer frame. That'd be terrific." And like any antique, a hit show (which in this case aired on BBC1 between 1986 and 1994) can only get more valuable with age. McShane said he'd kept in touch with his co-star Phyllis Logan, who played Lady Jane Felsham and now stars in Downton Abbey. Except, don't ask him what he thinks of it. Oh, go on then. "It's not my kind of show, »
This week sees the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the highly-anticipated sequel to last year’s blockbuster. But in the meantime, this week’s new Trailer Trashin’ column takes a look at the upcoming British comedy Cuban Fury.
Premise: A lonely sad-sack named Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) has a crush on his gorgeous new boss Julia (Rashida Jones), and the only way he can win her over is by mastering the art of dance. Good thing he used to be a child prodigy at salsa dancing – now all Bruce needs to do is rediscover his inner passion.
My take: Several times in the history of this column, I’ve featured a movie that I hadn’t even heard of before seeing the trailer in question. Such is the case with this week’s subject, the upcoming British romantic comedy Cuban Fury, which stars Nick Frost, best known from »

After stealing every scene he was in as the villain in last year's triumphant James Bond outing "Skyfall" (he didn't chew the scenery as much as gobbled it up whole), Javier Bardem could be back in bad guy mode for Warner Bros' upcoming "Peter Pan" tale "Pan." But he wouldn't play the villain you were probably expecting...
According to the report on Deadline, Bardem wouldn't be playing Captain Hook, the famous adversary of Peter Pan; instead he would be playing the real life historical figure of Blackbeard. (Blackbeard was recently integrated into a fantastical story courtesy of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides;" in that film the villainous pirate was played by a wonderfully over-the-top Ian McShane.) This is kind of odd, no? Although considering the "origin story" conceit of this take on "Peter Pan," we could very easily see Blackbeard, say, lose his hand in the third act »

American Horror Story, Season 3, Episode 6: “The Axeman Cometh”
Directed by Michael Uppendahl
Written by Douglas Petrie
Airs Wednesdays at 10:00 Pm on FX
They have never caught me and they never will. They have never seen me, for I am invisible, even as the ether that surrounds your earth. I am not a human being, but a spirit and a demon from the hottest hell.
Danny Huston guest stars on the sixth episode of American Horror Story: Coven, as an axe-wielding killer whose spirit is released from the dead by Zoe after communicating with him using a Ouija board. Much like Asylum, Coven is cramming in as much as they can in terms of plotting. Last season featured Nazis, aliens, demons and a Santa Claus killer to name a few; Coven so far introduced zombies, minotaurs, voodoo priestesses, and re-animated corpses. “The Axeman Cometh” continues to draw inspiration from »
Nick Frost stars as Bruce Garrett in Cuban Fury, a man who knows he's not suave, but also has an inner resource to tap into: he's a salsa prodigy. When an American woman (Rashida Jones) transfers to his office and catches Bruce's eye, he knows what he has to do. Despite constant put-downs from his friend/enemy (Thor: The Dark World's Chris O'Dowd), he returns to the dance floor he left behind long ago to sharpen his salsa chops and win over the lady of his dreams. Will he succeed? Who knows, but it's worth watching the trailer to see Frost and O'Dowd have a salsa fight in a parking garage. I've seen more imaginative plots, but this looks fun and quirky. I also love Nick Frost and kind of like seeing him without Simon Pegg strapped to his side. Plus, Ian McShane is in this as some sort of legendary salsa coach, »

If the thought of Shaun Of The Dead star Nick Frost as a former champion salsa dancer trying to regain past glory to win the girl puts a smile on your face then you, friend, are the target audience for James Griffiths' Cuban Fury. And Chris O'Dowd as Frost's salsa dancing rival and Deadwood's Ian McShane as his hard man instructor are just icing on the cake. It's all very silly, of course, and pretty much exactly what you would expect it to be. Take a look at the first trailer below....

Will Nick Frost be able to find an audience outside of the niche crowd that's fallen in love with his work from Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's Endc The guy is legitimately funny, but even adding his name in the headline made me wonder just how many people would read it and go, "Whoc" Audience awareness will be put to the test with his upcoming film Cuban Fury, in which he stars as Bruce Garrett, a man with unexpected talents, for as shabby as he may look, beneath the surface a passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant. Only one woman can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click - Nick Frost is Cuban Fury!

With Edgar Wright's Cornetto trilogy coming to a close this summer with The World's End, Nick Frost is completely free to strike out on his own. So he slapped on his dancing shoes to star in Cuban Fury. In attempt to fend off charming jerk Chris O'Dowd to win the heart of Rashida Jones (who sadly doesn't try a British accent), Frost is going to reignite his passion for salsa dancing with a little help from Ian McShane. Though no U.S. release date is set, Cuban Fury will come out in the U.K. on Valentine's Day. Hopefully, no couples get it confused with Cuban Furry, that documentary about the small group of brave men and women who, under the dark cloud of Communism, had sex in animal costumes. »

Nick Frost. Chris O'Dowd. Rashida Jones. Salsa. Cuban Fury is a film we've been excited about since it was first announced, and we've already cast our eye over the video blogs released during production. Now here's an exclusive look at the film's poster, with a bedazzled Frost giving it some welly, as Len on Strictly would say.The plot sees Frost's put-upon Bruce form a crush on his new boss, played by Rashida Jones. She's a keen salsa dancer, and to win her affections he brushes off his old dancing shoes and decides to reinvent himself as a lord of the dance - a sort of Michael Flatley with better hair. The fly in his foot ointment is Chris O'Dowd's rival for Jones' affections, so expect a dance battle or two before matters are settled.Cuban Fury comes loaded with bonus great British talent that includes Ian McShane, »
Nick Frost and salsa dancing. Don't naturally go together, you wouldn't think. But they sure do beautifully in the international trailer for Cuban Fury, which can be found below. In the film, Frost plays a working stiff (and former dance prodigy) who attempts to woo his beautiful new boss (Rashida Jones) via the art of sexy salsa dancing. Who wouldn't be swayed by that? Chris O'Dowd plays Frost's sarcastic co-worker, while Ian McShane is, naturally, his mentor. This looks like a very »

What's one way to a woman's heart? Dancing, apparently. And that's pretty much the entire drive behind the upcoming British comedy "Cuban Fury," with the first trailer arriving this morning hoping that its moves are enough to make you interested to see this. Nick Frost leads the movie as an inept, overweight regular dude who falls for the new American girl at the office, played by Rashida Jones. When he learns she loves salsa dancing, he starts taking lessons, meeting a gay dude who waxes his balls and Ian McShane who teaches him how to dodge a ball the secrets he needs to know to succeed. Add in Chris O'Dowd as Frost's co-worker and antagonist and it all adds up a movie that's pretty conventional all around, with Frost enduring no measure of humiliations, getting hit both in the face and in the junk in the span of this trailer. »
