2010 In Review: Charles' Take [Updated]

29 December 2010 9:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

You might have noticed some of my illustrious, talented, and all-around terrific colleagues have set about ticking off their 2010 lists. Never one to miss a chance to throw out an unsolicited (although hopefully compelling) opinion, I thought I might weigh in. This isn't so much a best-of list, as much as a reflection on the last year and some of the films which stuck out for various, particular reasons for me.I think many of the other reviewers on the site have the same lament I've been carrying for  the last couple of weeks: 2010 had so many movies and there was so little time to see them all. As of this writing, I still haven't had the opportunity to check out True Grit, Catfish, or give Black Swan the due diligence of a second viewing (if you held a gun to my head for an instant opinion, I'd say it was mostly excellent, »

16 December 2010 10:06 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Misfits! K-9! Little Crackers! Movies! Check out the joys heading to UK TV over the coming days...

This week, our TV highlights and recommendations take you only through the middle of the week and no further. But, please don't feel shortchanged, as we'll have a special Christmas holiday edition of Geek UK TV on Wednesday, to bring you through the holiday in telly style.

So, don't fret at the brevity of shows and films that follow, because a lorryload of great programming is winging it's way to us as we write this, and it's a heavy, heavy consignment, indeed, with more treats than coal, we hope, in store for us to enjoy.

So, here's the abbreviated version of new shows and specials arriving before the holiday dash...

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jackie Chan kicking at your nose…

15 December 2010 2:51 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Jean Claude Van Damme? It can only be Kung Fu Christmas on Syfy (Sky channel 129, Virgin Media channel 135, Talk Talk channel 22) from Dec 17th at 10pm

There won’t be many silent nights this December as Syfy turn the season of goodwill to all men – except those pesky bad guys – into a Kung Fu Christmas with a host of awesome martial arts movies. So, get writing to Santa to ask for a karate suit and a pair of nunchucks as they prepare to judo chop and high-kick their way into 2011.

If you’re dreaming of a fight Christmas, Santa’s got a real treat for you in the shape of a sack full of Jackie Chan movies. The great man is on a tour of Europe, looking for mysterious treasure that’s been protected by an order of monks in Armour Of God (Dec 21). In Police Story »

World Cinema: Franchises

8 December 2010 10:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hollywood may love creating franchises, but other countries are partial to making them, too. This week, Nick takes a look at some of world cinema’s most enduring examples...

I decided to re-watch The Departed the other night (having not seen it since the cinema), and then for good measure put on Infernal Affairs afterwards. And it got me thinking, not that the former is the most successful (critically, at least) Hollywood remake ever, but that it came from a bona fide hit franchise (yes, I'm calling it a franchise and not a trilogy!) from Hong Kong.

Franchise films may be all the rage in Hollywood, and, in fact, the golden goose that studio heads are desperately seeking, but by no means are they the exclusive property of American filmmaking.

Franchises are a worldwide phenomenon, and have been for many years. To me, this is either proof that the idea »

Geek shows and movies on UK TV in the coming week

2 December 2010 9:36 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Peep Show, Robert's Web, the end of Merlin, a repeat for Sherlock, and the conclusion of The Trip. Meet our UK TV round-up of what's coming...

After a couple weeks' break, we play catch-up this week with new programme starts, say goodbye with series finales, and hello once more to a very welcome return visit. All coming up in the next seven days on UK telly.

Last week, the excellent Peep Show, starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb, aired the first episode of its seventh series. Mark is now a dad, although a reluctant one initially, and there's evidence of plenty left in the tank for the show, even at this great running distance, as you can see in our review of the premiere here. The series continues on Channel 4 tonight, Friday, December 3rd at 10:00pm and if you want to catch up, you can watch episode 1 here. »

Jackie Chan: Where Did They Go Wrong?

29 November 2010 11:06 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Note: This is the first in a recurring Tfs feature series, analyzing past stars and their journey deep into career failure and, in some cases, their way back to success.

It’s been a rough road to middle age for the action star, who, after commercializing Asian martial arts films in a way Bruce Lee could have never dreamed, has struggled from convoluted kid film to convoluted kid film over the past decade, occasionally offering a tired reminder of the wall-jumping great he once was (Rush Hour 3, The Forbidden Kingdom, etc.).

Let’s take a closer look:

The Rise:

Supercop - sure, Police Story was a milestone overseas for Chan, and now looked back on by many as an early indicator, but Supercop was the balls-out action movie that made Americans (granted, not many, but enough) notice how talented this man was.

Though it came out internationally in 1992, Miramax »

2 November 2010 4:42 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Following the relative success of their first foray into 3D with ‘Childs Eye’ it looks like at least one of the two Pang brothers has been bitten by the 3D bug, with news that Oxide Pang is embarking on another multi dimensional horror thriller, titled Sleepwalker 3D. The story of Walker will revolve around the twin plotlines of a woman tortured by mysterious dreams and a policewoman with an unsolved murder case and will star Lee Sinje (‘Recycle’) and Charlie Young (‘New Police Story’).

Film-inspired holidays: The Hong Kong Kung Fu Holiday

8 October 2010 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Act as cannon fodder for the next Jackie Chan, or take the Star Ferry to Kowloon for some neon glamour and play spot-the-film-location

If you've watched a lot of Hong Kong films but haven't visited the territory, you may be disappointed to find that there aren't gangs of nunchuck-wielding triads on every corner. Or cops bouncing up walls. Or goalies in yellow tracksuits flying 50ft up into the air to save goals.

But it is an undeniably filmic experience. Jump in a cab on the streets of Mong Kok, squint a bit and you could be in one of Wong Kar-wai's blurry arthouse puzzles. Hop on the open-top 15C bus as it bombs down the narrow, winding road from the Peak to Central and it's easy to imagine you're in one of Jackie Chan's inventive chases. Take the Star Ferry to Kowloon and relive the romance of The World of Suzie Wong. »

The James Clayton Column: Two karate kids find oneness

29 July 2010 10:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith hit the cinemas with their remake of 80s classic The Karate Kid, James examines the spiritual undercurrents in both films…

Some scruffy-looking, half-witted nerf herder punks have been picking on our kid Jaden Smith before he's even had a chance to unpack his suitcase and settle in to his new life in Beijing. The nerve of these roughhouse hoodlums!

This is wrong and unjust. They're getting in the way of his preteen romance with the Chinese violinist virtuoso girl. They're making the little American outsider feel even more homesick and alienated. Where do these bullies get off, eh?

At this point in a Will Smith film, our main man would scream "Aww, hell no!" and rise up ready to beat the bad guys' punk asses down and probably proceed to save the world. Except this isn't a Will Smith film. He's only on board »

[DVD Review] Shinjuku Incident

14 June 2010 12:51 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

It probably says something about Jackie Chan's image that the fact that he has a sex scene in Shinjuku Incident is noteworthy among his fans. This despite the fact that Chan's sex scene lasts about 10 seconds and is kind of depressing, with Chan's character mourning his lost love and a prostitute gyrating on top of him. This, let's assume, is part of the attempt to "sell" Jackie Chan as a serious actor.

Now in his 50's, Chan wisely knows that he can no longer deliver the feats that brought him fame, namely the elaborate stunts that made him the bane of all insurance companies. So now he wants to be taken more seriously as an actor, not as an action star.

To this end, Chan trusted One Nite in Mongkok director Derek Yee to guide him as Chan, for the first time, plays a character who is a thief, »

A Film of One's Own: 11.5 Cinematic Spin-offs

10 June 2010 2:02 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

As we sat down to write the introduction to our list of notable film spin-offs, someone forwarded along a link to the big movie news story of the day: Tom Cruise announcing his plan to reprise his role as ultra-profane movie producer Les Grossman from the 2008 film "Tropic Thunder" in an as-yet-untitled comedy. Tom Cruise, in other words, is getting into the spin-off game.

So even though we're a week late in finishing this list inspired by "Get Him to the Greek" (more on that film in a bit), it's still plenty timely, and will continue to be as long as Hollywood exploits successful properties even after their original stars have moved on. Here's the elite company Mr. Grossman will be joining:

"Evan Almighty" (2007)

Original movie: "Bruce Almighty" (2003)

Spin-off character: Evan Baxter (Steve Carell)

When a spin-off brings along two original characters and the actors that played them -- in this case, »

The Ultimate Karate Kid: The 5 Best Jackie Chan Movies

10 June 2010 7:54 AM, PDT | AMC - Script to Screen | See recent AMC - Script to Screen news »

This weekend the new film "The Karate Kid" opens up in AMC Theatres everywhere.  The movie is a lose remake of the 1984 film of the same name which starred Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita.

This time around martial arts superstar Jackie Chan takes on the role of sensei as he teaches Jaden Smith the ways of Kung-Fu.

So as you get ready to go see the new "Karate Kid", I thought I'd take this opportunity to run down what I consider to be the top 5 Jackie Chan movies:

#1 - Drunken Master 2 (Aka Legend of the Drunken Master)

Not only is this my all time favorite Jackie Chan movie, it also ranks as my second favorite Martial Arts film of all time too (just behind the Jet Li masterpiece "Fist of Legend").

The 1980 film was re-released in North America in 2000 under the title of "Legend of the Drunken Master" which was easy enough because the movie, »

Latest “Karate Kid” clip emphasizes action, fighting in remake

8 June 2010 4:59 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Just to remind audience members that “The Karate Kid” has plenty of, you know, karate in it, Sony has cut an action-themed trailer and placed it on the Web days before the remake opens this Friday.

Check out the new, Kung Fu cut here on this MySpace page.

We were lucky enough to see the remade “Karate Kid” last week. And while embargoes prevent us from fully reviewing the film until Friday, I think I can comment on the clip and say it fairly represents the amount of fighting you are going to see in the film.

There’s enough to convince you that young Jaden Smith is in hot water with the neighborhood bullies, enough to convince you that the neighborhood bully could actually do some serious harm, and enough to convince you that Jackie Chan — as Smith’s instructor — was a bad-ass in his time. »

The James Clayton Column: How to be a Good Cop with Bad Lieutenant

27 May 2010 8:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James checks out Nicolas Cage in Bad Lieutenant: Port Of New Orleans. He adjusts his travel plans accordingly...

Some days I walk the streets, look around and find myself quoting Private Gomer Pyle of Full Metal Jacket: "I am in a world of shit." Unlike Pyle, I don't then shove a rifle in my mouth and blast my brains all over the bathroom (he blows his head off in the head, see?). Normally, I just hide inside, stick on a film and wish I lived somewhere else, somewhere less bleak, cold and wet where the population aren't so cynical and have an average Iq higher than 36.

Ever since I was a little gremlin (before I fell into a puddle and turned into something horrible) movies have made me want to travel. I watched Raiders Of The Lost Ark and wanted to journey to exotic Egypt. I saw The Last Samurai »

Script Being Developed For Bad Boys III

10 May 2010 12:35 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Aw Hells To The Ya, Mike Lowrey Coming Back At Cha On Tha Big Screen! Mike Lowrey All Up In Yo Grill!!Comingsoon spoke with Big Chief Running Movie Maker about the possibility of him teaming back up with Michael Bay for Bad Boys III. While the first one was rather enjoyable, and showed off the talents of Michael Bay before his ego took over, the second film was a total disaster. Bay was running rampant and even lifted action scenes from Jackie Chan and tried to say they were his own original ideas. I wonder what he'll rip off for the third film.Here's what big man Bruckheimer, who is promoting Prince of Persia and is working hard on Pirates 4, had to say:It's a wish and a hope and a dream. We've been working on a screenplay, which is excellent. It's an idea Will gave us, so hopefully, it will come to fruition, »

The James Clayton Column: Babe Ruthless beats Iron Man

29 April 2010 10:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James celebrates Whip It, with a journey across the worlds of Iron Man 2 and Kick-Ass for good measure...

"I am Iron Man!" Actually, no you're not. You're a billionaire war profiteer and disaster capitalist who is going to get his sorry spoiled arse handed to him by a vengeful Russian guy with electro-whip arms and a nickname stolen from a sex tape. Tony Stark: you suck.

I like Robert Downey, Jr. and I loved the first movie but building up to the freshly-released Iron Man sequel I can't help but hope that 'our hero' gets a good pasting. He's a self-absorbed playboy who only has superpowers thanks to high tech gadgetry. He only really gets by because of a privileged upbringing, the fact he inherited his daddy's business empire and a fortune earned from the massacre and mutilation of others. Way to hustle, Tony. What a hero.
