The latest in our film of the year countdown, as voted for by the entire writing team of Den Of Geek, is the superb End Of Watch. Here's why it made the list...
7th place: End Of Watch
We've been here before. Two cops in a car, city streets full of criminals outside. Arrests. House searches. Fights. Chases. From Freebie And The Bean via 48 Hrs and Lethal Weapon and beyond, the buddy-cop thriller has been parodied and raked over countless times over the past 40-or-so years. End Of Watch, however, brings with it enough energy, atmosphere and great writing to not only breathe life into the genre, but also make it one of the most unexpectedly powerful and memorable movies of 2012.
It helps that »
Looks like another '70s cop show is about to make its way to the big screen some forty years after its heyday. Joining The Rockford Files which is already in development, a Kojak movie is now also in the process of being cooked up over at Universal Pictures. The bald detective famously played by Telly Savalas appeared on CBS for five seasons between 1973 and 78 before being cancelled due to low ratings. Now a new generation will instead get to hear Vin Diesel growl the classic catchphrase, "Who loves ya, baby?". According to Deadline, Universal has hired screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to pen the script for a Kojak feature film. The duo have a pretty solid reputation in Hollywood right now after writing the script for the last three Bond movies: Skyfall, Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale. However, it's worth noting that they also penned a couple »

Coming off their new distribution deal with Twentieth Century Fox, DreamWorks Animation is now upping their yearly output to three films per year. Last week, we had the chance to see previews of the three films they’re prepping for their 2013 slate including The Croods, Turbo, and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
First up, director Rob Minkoff — best known as the director of The Lion King and Stuart Little – presented his film Mr. Peabody & Sherman, a 3D re-imagining of the segments of the same name from the 1960s animated classic Rocky & Bullwinkle. Mr. Peabody is the world’s smartest talking dog who, along with his adopted human Sherman, travels through time in a machine he calls the Wabac. The pair travel to famous historic places and meet famous historic people first hand, getting in adventures along the way.
The short teaser that started things off began with animation from the 60s cartoon »

We’ve been here before. In both 1997 and 2001 Morgan Freeman took on the role in two mediocre offerings (Kiss The Girls and Along Came a Spider), the best thing about which (you’ve guessed it) was Freeman himself. This time around The Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen is on board and has made Tyler Perry his first mate. Why? Well I’m not quite sure, but I’ll get onto that.
The story, pieced together from a few different Cross books concerns a serial killer known as Picasso (Matthew Fox). A cage fighter who tortures and kills people for pleasure and inexplicably leaves cubist sketches behind at the murder scenes. Soon enough criminal profiler and all round man of action Alex Cross (Perry) is on the case. A lot of rather unpleasant stuff then unfolds, delivered with a consummate laziness that it’s terribly hard to engage with. »

The Fast and the Furious may have catapulted Vin Diesel to stardom (and launched a still-thriving franchise), but before that, action fans knew him as the mercenary antihero Richard B. Riddick in director David Twohy’s 2000 sci-fi thriller, Pitch Black.
That film eventually led its director and star to reunite for a sequel – The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) – which traded in its predecessor’s more low-key, atmospheric tone for a grander scale. The resulting film failed to meet expectations at the box office, but regardless, Diesel and Twohy have consistently talked up a third installment in the Riddick series, appropriately titled Riddick.
Now, courtesy of CineHeroes (via I Am Rogue), we have our first look at the film’s international poster. See it below:

Cross plays a cat and mouse game with a serial killer called Picasso (Matthew Fox, TV’s Lost). After Picasso makes the mission personal, Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits.

Cross meets his match in a dangerous serial killer (Fox). The two face off in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, but when the mission gets personal, »
Overnight Productions, the producers of Robert Rodriguez's 2010 Grindhouse spin-off Machete, has filed a $2 million lawsuit against Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions that could ultimately block the release of the upcoming sequel Machete Kills. According to Deadline, "Overnight claims that... they were not provided with Texas tax credit information as required under the agreement with Rodriguez's company [and] defendants have also failed and refused to provide the required budget information to Overnight Productions so that it can determine the producer fee owed with respect to the sequel."
Filming is already complete on the sequel, which was picked up for distribution by Open Road Films just last month and sees Danny Trejo returning as the hard-as-nails former Mexican Federale in order to stop an arms dealer from launching a deadly weapon into space. Jessica Alba (Sin City) and Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast and the Furious) also reprise their roles from the original, while »
Vin Diesel has posted a new pair of images on Facebook of Fast And Furious 6, featuring three of the original cast reunited once more. One of the two images shows a scene featuring Diesel, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster, three of the original cast members from franchise kick-starter, The Fast And The Furious. Given that that film came out way back in 2001, it’s remarkable to see three of the core group still going strong, with fourth wheel Michelle Rodriguez also returning for round six. The other image is a more generic shot of...

Alexa Vega has revealed via her Instagram account the first official image of her character Killjoy in the forthcoming Robert Rodriguez directed sequel Machete Kills. The young actress has certainly aged well after bursting onto our screens as a 13 year old teenager in the 2001 movie Spy Kids (also directed by Rodriguez):
Machete Kills is written and directed by Rodriguez and is the follow up to the popular 2010 film Machete starring Danny Trejo as the title character. The film also features a host of familiar names such as Jessica Alba (Sin City) and Michelle Rodriguez (The Fast and The Furious), who will be reprising their roles from the first film as well as newcomers such as Sofía Vergara (Modern Family), Amber Heard (Zombieland), Antonio Banderas (Desperado), Vanessa Hudgens (Sucker Punch), William Sadler (The Green Mile), Cuba Gooding Jr (Jerry Maguire), Charlie Sheen (Anger Management) and Mel Gibson (Braveheart).

With Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots already attached, Need For Speed looks to go a slightly different route than its spiritual predecessor, The Fast And The Furious, and actually get some decent young actors on board. The latest to sign up (or at least be close to) for the video game adaptation is Dominic Cooper (The Devil’S Double, Captain America: The First Avenger) who will play the second male lead as ‘a character named Dino, an ex-nascar driver who uses his connections to the wealthy to create a business rebuilding and modifying supercars’. So far, I think they’ve been smart when it comes to casting and I’m sure this film will be a hit with the same crowd that laps up Fast And Furious sequels. It doesn’t sound like my cup of tea, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t be an entertaining night out. »

When it comes to driving games, few do it better than Forza, in fact in some ways they actually do it too well. The established Forza franchise broke onto the Xbox as direct competition to the Playstation’s Gran Turismo series, and through each incarnation it has become the driving game of choice for true petrol heads. It is perhaps thanks to this position of superiority that they decided to branch out with the more accessible and ‘fun’, Forza Horizon.
Though the complexities of Forza have never gripped me, it was hard not to admire the scope and quality of the games, I wanted to get involved, and I’d hoped Forza Horizon was going to be that missing link – an accessible Forza title – and for the most part, it is. For starters, I have no idea what bump stiffness is, and for this Forza I don’t need to. »

Opening today is the new Kung Fu action film, The Man with the Iron Fists, directed by Bobby Diggs aka RZA, the unofficial leader of the Wu-Tang Clan.

The film, set in a surrealist version of nineteenth century China, focuses on a series of lone warriors who are forced to unite to defeat a common foe and save their home of Jungle Village.
I recently had a chance, along with several other members of the press, to speak with RZA and Lucy Liu about The Man with the Iron Fists. The two talented individuals discussed working in China, influences, female empowerment, character development, working with their co-star Russell Crowe, »

Chester See's brand of crooning soft rock has gained wide exposure thanks in large part to See's association with the Yesterday, Today, Forever (Ytf) YouTube supergroup. See, along with Ryan Higa and KevJumba, has brought the Ytf spirit to The Fast and the Furious director Justin Lin's You Offend Me, You Offend My Family channel (or Yomyomf). See has debuted a new three part web series, titled Reality Reboot, where he goes through various scenarios related to meeting a girl in a laundromat. The premise of Reality Reboot seems simple at first: Boy meets girl while doing his laundry, boy does everything he can to make girl like him, boy overdoes, girl isn't having it. Gee, I feel like I've seen that one before. However, just when Reality Reboot seems like it will be a generic romantic comedy, it takes a turn for the surreal: Chester gets zapped »
