Movie Review – The Foreigner (2017)

The Foreigner, 2017.

Directed by Martin Campbell.

Starring Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan, Rufus Jones, Charlie Murphy, and Orla Brady.

Synopsis:

The story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge fuelled vendetta when the only person left for him to love – his teenage daughter – is taken from him in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

Jackie Chan’s career in the West has been a mixed bag to put it mildly. Even at the height of his popularity West of China, in Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon etc, he was doing affable (if disposable) entertainment. The trouble was, among his better aforementioned works, he was doing dreadful films like

Weinstein Resigns from Directors Guild as New Lawsuit Surfaces

Weinstein Resigns from Directors Guild as New Lawsuit Surfaces
Collateral damage from the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal continues to pile up, with the Director's Guild of America confirming today that Harvey Weinstein has resigned from the DGA. While Harvey Weinstein is best known as a producer, he joined the Director's Guild more than 30 years ago when he and his brother Bob Weinstein both wrote and directed the 1986 comedy Playing for Keeps starring Daniel Jordano, Matthew Penn and Leon W. Grant, alongside a young Marisa Tomei in just her second movie role ever. Here's what a DGA spokesperson had to say in a very brief statement, that doesn't mention the sexual misconduct allegations.

"Harvey Weinstein resigned his membership from the DGA, effective today."

The Director's Guild announced in October that they had filed disciplinary charges against the embattled Harvey Weinstein, which came just days after the first Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment claims were made in a New York Times report.

Being Mary Jane Season Finale Recap: Did Mj Make Her Biggest Mistake Yet?

Being Mary Jane Season Finale Recap: Did Mj Make Her Biggest Mistake Yet?
Mary Jane Paul, Queen of Self-Sabotage™, has struck again.

The fourth season finale of Being Mary Jane buried its titular news anchor under increasingly mounting pressure, as Justin and Kara’s ongoing Game of Thrones — or at least Game of Offices — came down to her tie-breaking vote. Would she choose Justin, the man who (at this point) can give her everything she’s always wanted? Or would she choose Kara, her “ride or die” since Day 1?

Frankly, it was too difficult a decision for Mary Jane to make with a clear head, so she

The Dark Tower Soundtrack From Composer Tom Holkenborg Available August 4

Sony Classical proudly announces the release of The Dark Tower (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) featuring the music of the prolific Dutch composer Tom Holkenborg. The soundtrack will be released digitally on July 28 and on CD on August 4. The movie opens in theaters nationwide on August 4.

About the film and soundtrack, Tom Holkenborg says: “Dark Tower is an incredible mix of horror, fantasy and western, it inhabits a unique and singular world, human and personal, yet also other, and the score had to try and reflect this. It was a fascinating project to work on, and an honor trying to score the words and imagination of the great Stephen King.”

There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen.

Why Chris Jericho left WWE, Brock Lesnar Summerslam plans – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

A Wild Vince McMahon Appears!

Being 71 years old and having repeatedly revolutionised the professional wrestling business, you’d think WWE Chairman Vince McMahon would be taking it easier in his seventh decade. Especially because he’s rather prone to randomly tearing quads. But he still refuses to skip leg day.

Netflix Is Purging a Ton of TV in April

The time has come. Netflix has announced the titles it's pulling from its catalog in April, and it's a staggering list. There are a handful of movies leaving, but it's really the TV shows that have us devastated. Multiple seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bones, House, M.D., and Ally McBeal will all disappear into the night. At least there are new shows and movies coming to comfort us, but this is still pretty depressing. Expiring April 1 Ally McBeal, seasons one to five Angel, seasons one to five Better Off Ted, season one Barbershop 2: Back in Business Bones, seasons one to four Buffy the Vampire Slayer, seasons one to seven Chaplin Dollhouse, season one Ferris Bueller's Day Off Firefly House, M.D., seasons one to eight Lie to Me, season one Menace II Society Resident Evil: Extinction Rosewell, seasons one to three Snow Day Stomp the Yard Superman II

Arnold Schwarzenegger, A Career In Crisis: Why the ’80s Action Icon Can’t Mount a Comeback

Arnold Schwarzenegger, A Career In Crisis: Why the ’80s Action Icon Can’t Mount a Comeback
This can’t be what Arnold Schwarzenegger imagined 2017 to look like: Sure, there’s a reality star in the White House, the Chicago Cubs are World Series champions, and his arch-rival (/best celebrity friend), Sylvester Stallone, is a recent Academy Award nominee. Yet for the ex-governor of California, far more confounding is how he became an ex-celebrity.

Schwarzenegger spent his acting life amassing a domestic box office of more than $1.8 billion. That haul came from comedies, like “Twins” ($111 million); science fiction, like “Total Recall” ($119 million) and “Terminator 2” ($204 million); or — his bread and butter — action flicks a la “True Lies” ($146 million) and “Eraser” ($101 million). But one unfortunate connection for all of Schwarzenegger’s films grossing $100 million-plus: They were all made before the year 2000.

Since the dawn of the new millennium, Schwarzenegger’s name above the title has carried less weight at the box office, resulting in drastically lower figures. How he

Collateral Damage Possible As CIA Scandal Looks Set For TV

When a story has all the right elements to draw an audience in – political intrigue, emotional drama, philandering government officials – then it’s only a matter of time before it finds its way onto a screen of some size, somewhere. Such is the hope of producers Ron Senkowski and Michael De Luca, who have just acquired the book Collateral Damage: Petraeus, Power, Politics And The Abuse Of Privacy, written by Jill Kelley.

Jill Kelley is an American socialite and Honorary Ambassador to the U.S. Central Command Coalition whose stalking complaint to the FBI in 2012 sparked a controversy that toppled the CIA Director, General David Petraeus. More than just a political scandal, however, the episode highlighted the issue of privacy with regard to government surveillance – as Jill Kelley explained to Deadline.

“In 2012, I innocently reported a life-changing stalking crime. As a result, politically pressured government agents snooped through my private e-mails,

‘Redacted’: Brian De Palma’s Directorially Omniscient Iraq War Drama

“Who captures life? Who takes what’s left? Who stay? On that next, already know my ‘gillicutti, like I told you. Don’t touch me. Whats up with it? I stay ‘noided. Stimulation overload account for it – desensitized by the mass amounts of shit. I’ve seen it; I’ve been it. Can’t delete it; feels like jail (‘noided). Full moon in da klink, shinin’ don’t sleep; surveillance post my bail. I’ve seen footage. I stay ‘noided. I’ve seen footage.”

Death Grips, “I’ve Seen Footage”

The question of “who authored this movie?” has rarely, if ever, come up in our essays about Brian De Palma, and any response to it is less an answer than communicating received wisdom — intelligently and passionately, but as received wisdom all the same. Let’s state this upfront: Redacted is a Brian De Palma movie in more than onscreen credit.

The Fosters Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Collateral Damage

Oh. Em. Gee! Now that's how you do a summer finale!

There were twists, turns, revelations, and a heck of a lot of heartbreak. Thankfully, loose threads were tied and questions were answered. Any reservations that they would leave us disgruntled and in the dark were nullified on The Fosters Season 4 Episode 10.

It was a fantastic final installment to an occasionally unbalanced season.

The Foster-Adams family are notorious for making questionable decisions. Brandon and Callie Some more than others. Sometimes, the characters can skate by, just barely facing any real repercussions for their actions.

The aptly named "Collateral Damage" rectified that pesky little problem.

As I mentioned in the review for The Fosters Season 4 Episode 9, Brandon's road to Juilliard was integral to the series since the beginning. Unfortunately, it took a detour with the Courtney drama. Arguably, when it should have mattered the most.

As a viewer, it was difficult

Team Iron Man: Why I'm Rooting For Tony Stark In Civil War

Note: There are no spoilers for Captain America: Civil War in play here. We're just going by what's in the trailers, folks. Collateral damage. Whether intentional or not, that phrase has been a powerful motivator for both the DC and Marvel Cinematic Universes over the past few years. The arrival of super-powered beings – be it Superman in Man of Steel or The Avengers in the McU’s Phase One – has forced humanity to reflect on how much damage we’re willing to incur to allow these "heroes" to keep us safe. And that conversation comes to a boiling point in Captain America: Civil War. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) opposes the Sokovia Accords, a government bill meant to police the Avengers and limit where and when they can fight. Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), on the flip side, sees a need for such ...
