New on Blu-Ray/DVD: Arrow Season 2

16 September 2014 3:03 PM, PDT

Two years ago, DC and Warner Bros started the ambitious project of “Arrow,” a modern television retelling of the Green Arrow character.  Following in the footsteps of WB’s previous DC adventure “Smallville” which even had their own version of the Emerald Archer, this new take was to be darker, and character driven, with a “No Powers” mandate.  Where “Smallville” was a fun show, and was pretty well written, it began to drag on as the “No tights, no flight” rule began to hamper their story telling. Towards the end they were telling Superman stories without a proper Superman.  With “Arrow” the intent was always to get him into the suit, but it was also about evolving the character into the hero fans knew.  Season One told the story of Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) return home after being stranded on an island for five years, and his quest to »

The Guest (2014) Movie Review

16 September 2014 2:33 PM, PDT

Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett are the duo responsible for last year’s indie horror hit “You’re Next.” While it doesn’t reinvent the wheel, it’s a super fun home invasion yarn, and full of solid scares and action (it’s hard to ever go completely wrong whenever you have dudes in creepy animal masks breaking into houses and terrorizing folks). When their latest collaboration, “The Guest,” starts out, you think you’re in for a similar ride. But that’s not how it all goes down, and what they’ve crafted here is a dark, entertaining thriller that’s familiar but still inventive in all the right places. The first act is a solid, stranger comes to town narrative. The Peterson family—father Spencer (Leland Orser), mother Laura (Sheila Kelley), son Luke (Brendan Meyer), and daughter Anna (Maika Monroe)—recently lost their oldest son Caleb, »

Loki Will Battle Giant Apes and Other Creatures on Skull Island

16 September 2014 10:03 AM, PDT

Legendary Entertainment has announced that Thor and the Avengers nemesis Tom Hiddleston will front their upcoming big-budget “Skull Island” special effects extravaganza, with Jordan Vogt-Roberts directing the film. The movie is expected to return to the mysterious and prehistoric island where King Kong first surfaced before that whole, you know, Empire State Building fiasco. The production company didn’t release any details about Hiddleston’s character, or really anything resembling a plot for “Skull Island,” but given King Kong’s appearance, you can expect plenty of giant monster battles while puny humans run around trying not to get squash. And of course, one very hot blonde will get tossed in there somewhere. “Skull Island” will stomp into theaters November 4, 2016. So what does Tom Hiddleston have to say about this casting? »

Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon are, er, Bourne Again

16 September 2014 9:35 AM, PDT

Matt Damon may be known for a lot of things, but let’s face it, the “Bourne” films are his most profitable by a long stretch. Three films in, and that franchise has grossed what, over a few bazillion dollars? Or thereabouts. So it’s no surprise Universal is really hot to get Damon back in the CIA-themed series, and according to Deadline, it’s going to happen. The site says the studio has now “begun making deals” with not just Damon to return for a fourth Bourne film, but with director Paul Greengrass as well. Greengrass and Damon teamed up for two of the four Bourne movies — the second and third one. Most people probably forget that Greengrass didn’t also direct the first. That was “Edge of Tomorrow’s” Doug Liman. And the fourth movie, of course, was Damon-less, though his character Jason Bourne did get plenty of mentions. »

16 September 2014 9:22 AM, PDT

Disney’s star-studded musical “Into the Woods” opens in theaters this December 25, 2014. Until then, check out a new poster for the movie featuring Meryl Streep looking totally hot. The Rob Marshall film stars Streep, along with Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine, among many others. “Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Watch a Crazy Action-Packed 4 Minute Clip from The Equalizer

15 September 2014 10:13 AM, PDT

It goes without saying that Denzel Washington kicks some major ass in Antoine Fuqua’s upcoming “The Equalizer.” But just how much ass? Well, if this new 4-minute clip is any indication, it’s quite a lot. You know what I like most about this clip, though? I like that they’re not trying to make Denzel’s character, who I guess is in his fifties, into this superhero guy who is faster than a speeding bullet and can leap tall buildings in a single bound. He’s just smarter than the guys he’s fighting, that’s all, which make sense to me. Check out the clip below, check it outers. In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young »
