Jackie Chan to Receive Honorary Academy Award

2 September 2016 6:13 AM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Jackie Chan, legendary actor, writer, director, producer and all-round awesome guy, is to be given an honorary award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences at the Governors Awards this coming November.

Jackie Chan, 62, a native of Hong Kong, has, in the 54 years since his first movie appearance as Yuen Lau in Big and Little Wong Tin Bar (1962), appeared in over 30 martial arts movies. Perhaps best known in the west for his Hollywood features such as the Rush Hour series, Rumble in the Bronx and Shanghai Noon, his charisma and outstanding athletic talents have gained him many fans worldwide.

However, it is his work in Hong Kong that many of his fans consider to be the peak of his career. Be it in the seminal Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow (1978), the iconic Drunken Master (1978, or the classic Police Story (1985), Chan’s ability to both charm and amaze »

Mortal Kombat X – Kombat Pack 2 Review

6 March 2016 3:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As an unabashed fan of Mortal Kombat X, I was interested in the Kombat Pack 2 prior to any details being released on it. The first Kombat Pack was well worth the money, as the new costumes were excellent and the additional fighters even better. For the second Dlc pack, NetherRealm Studios has returned to the formula that worked so well last year. Once again, those that choose to purchase the content, or buy the complete Mortal Kombat Xl, will get two new horror movie icons, as well as two returning faces to the franchise. It’s a successful formula for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, so it’s not too surprising to see it being implemented again.

Serving as counter-balances to the previously released Jason Voorhees and Predator, the Kombat Pack 2 brings Leatherface and the Xenomorph to the Mortal Kombat universe. The “face” of the iconic Texas Chainsaw Massacre film franchise, »

Review: Does the Netflix Sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Deliver?

26 February 2016 9:32 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 After 15 years, the sequel to the popular martial arts action classic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has finally come out. Is Sword of Destiny worth the wait?

 When Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was released in the Us in 2001, it was extremely well received by fans and critics, becoming the first foreign film to surpass $100 million dollars in America. It was nominated for Best Picture honors and Ang Lee was nominated for Best Director. It won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. In the years immediately following the film, there was a lot of interest in a sequel. However, the follow-up film was delayed and delayed again, and when filming was finally announced, there was not a lot of excitement or online buzz about it. The honeymoon was over. Now, 15 years after the success of the first film, the sequel Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny »
