The Best Movie Fight Scenes — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best Movie Fight Scenes — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the bone-crunching “Atomic Blonde,” what is the greatest movie fight scene?

Read More‘Atomic Blonde’: How They Turned One Amazing Action Scene Into a Seven-Minute Long Take Erin Oliver Whitney (@cinemabite), ScreenCrush

I’ve got a soft spot for wuxia so the “best fight scene” immediately evokes Zhang Yimou in my mind. I could list every fight in “Hero,” sequences so spellbindingly beautiful and graceful you forget you’re watching violence. The bamboo forest battle from “House of Flying Daggers” is another all-timer, a mesmerizing fight that almost entirely takes place in the air. And the bone-crunching, table-smashing

‘John Wick: Chapter 2′ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose, Common, Claudia Gerini, Lance Reddick, Laurence Fishburne, Tobias Segal, John Leguizamo | Written by Derek Kolstad | Directed by Chad Stahelski

2014′s John Wick took pretty much everyone by surprise. The third in a trilogy of action movies Keanu Reeves made in 2013/4, John Wick succeeded where 47 Ronin and The Man of Tai Chi (in which Reeves played the villain) didn’t. And that’s not to say that either of those films were sub-par, far from it. However there was something about the stoic, unstoppable hitman John Wick that resonated with audiences across the globe. And so three years later we finally get a sequel.

From the same writer/director team as the first film, Derek Kolstad and Chad Stahelski respectively, John Wick: Chapter 2 picks up where the first film left off. Literally. John heads back to the gang who stole his

Alex Kurtzman interview: The Mummy, Transformers

Matt Edwards Jun 5, 2017

Alex Kurtzman chats to us about The Mummy, Univeral's Dark Universe of films, and writing for Michael Bay.

The Mummy (2017) is directed by Alex Kurtzman. We were interested enough in chatting to the director of The Mummy, but Kurtzman has a fascinating CV, having worked on several high profile films and TV series as a writer and producer with Roberto Orci, including The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Star Trek (2009), Fringe and the first two Michael Bay Transformers movies.

Den of Geek sat down with Kurtzman to chat about his experience making The Mummy and the upcoming Dark Universe, the collection of linked Universal Monster movies that he’ll be working on, and what it was like to work with Michael Bay.

When did you come onto The Mummy?

The studio came to me, it’s got to be four or five years ago now, and asked if I

The Dark Crystal: first teaser for Netflix prequel

Joseph Baxter May 19, 2017

Netflix gives a series order to The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance, a prequel to a 1982 fantasy classic from Jim Henson...

The Dark Crystal first entered the pop-culture fray as a fantastical theatrical offering during the 1982 Christmas season.

Directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz, featuring then-groundbreaking animatronics and imaginative creatures from Henson’s Creature Shop, the Tolkien-esque fantasy film earned its share of fans, but was hardly a box-office smash. However, its fandom has apparently endured enough to warrant Netflix’s greenlight for offshoot series The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance.

Netflix has given a 10-episode series order for The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance, which will serve as a prequel, set, they put it, “many years” before the events of the original 1982 movie.

While Netflix did not provide details regarding when we can expect The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, it did release a teaser video,

‘Female John Wick’ Movie In The Works From Taken Director

A couple years ago, John Wick surprised audiences when it hit theaters. This was a film that had its trailer released a mere month before its theatrical debut. This would normally spell bad news, but that wasn’t the case for John Wick. Instead, audiences were treated to a lean, mean action flick with just enough plot and story keep things going, but not too much that it slowed down the pacing.

Of course, with the film and its sequel doing so well, it was only a matter of time before we’d get more similar films. This latest “copycat” (I put it in quotations because this is not necessarily a bad thing) comes from Taken director Pierre Morel, and is called Peppermint.

THR describes the film as:

Peppermint is a revenge story centering on a young mother who finds herself with nothing to lose, and is now going to

The 50 Greatest Car Chases in Film: Part 2

  • Cinelinx
The Fast and Furious movies aren't the only ones with great car chases. Join us as we take a look at the 50 best car chase scenes in film. This week, we're counting down from #25 to #1!

Like peanut butter and jelly, car chases and movies are two things that just go together perfectly. A chase is inherently interesting to watch - someone is trying their best to get away by any means possible, while the other party is trying to stop them from doing so. The danger involved, the threat of violence, and even the thrill of the hunt are all part of why we often can’t look away. A car chase is the next level of chase. They are fast - an embodiment of man and machine together. They are also dangerous - the stakes are incredibly high, and not just for the people involved in the chase.

Sorry to Bother You, but We Need to Talk About How Hot Jason Statham Is For a Minute

Sorry to Bother You, but We Need to Talk About How Hot Jason Statham Is For a Minute
I recently watched the latest Fast and Furious movie, The Fate of the Furious, which is full of very bald, very muscular men. But while Vin Diesel and The Rock certainly have their charms, we're here to discuss one in particular: Jason Statham. In addition to coming away from the movie with a newfound respect for submarine captains everywhere, I couldn't help but wonder why he - who has been entertaining us for years in action movies like The Italian Job, The Transporter, and Furious 7 - has yet to reach full-fledged sex symbol status here in the States. I voiced this opinion to my mom as I left the theater, who told me it's probably because "he looks like a British Q-tip." After deleting her number and blocking her on Facebook, I immediately rounded up a collection of extremely attractive photos of Jason to prove her wrong, which you

The Fifth Element Heads Back To Theaters With Valerian Preview

My how time flies. Twenty years ago, it was about a year since I had moved out on my own for the first time. There was a great movie theater in Grand Rapids, Studio 28, that showed all kinds of movies, from the blockbusters to quirky little independent pieces. One film I saw was from Luc Besson, a weird little sci-fi movie called The Fifth Element. Visually, the film was unlike anything I had seen. It was almost as if space aliens went to Hollywood and gave them a film for us humans to enjoy. Plus, it introduced the world to Milla Jovovich.

And is that really a bad thing?

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that folks are going to get a chance to see The Fifth Element in theaters again this summer thanks to Fathom Events and Sony Pictures. It will have a 4K restoration which will liven up an already beautiful film.

‘Playground’ Trailer: Luc Besson’s New Web Series Takes Us to Assassin School
French filmmaker Luc Besson may be best known for directing visually dazzling sci-fi films like The Fifth Element and the upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, but he’s also built up quite a career as a writer. He’s written screenplays for a handful of movies he didn’t direct, including Taken, The Transporter, and Colombiana. His latest […]

The Sweet Symphony of Violence

The best cinematic action of 2017 in three parts from the movies of SXSW.

It was heavier than I had anticipated. At the age of 16, if my memory serves me correctly, it was the first time I’d ever held a real gun. In the midwest, surrounded by a family full of avid hunters, this was a right of passage. At some point an uncle or two would want to show you the awesome power of a real firearm, both as appreciation for the weapon’s power and as a lesson in the seriousness of its deadly potential. The weight of the revolver in my hand brought both of these concepts to life with immediacy. It’s hard to hold a real gun and not be in awe and at least a little terrified. It’s a feeling I’ll never shake, perhaps one of those moments in which a teenager’s journey toward adulthood was accelerated a

David Baddiel interview: stand-up, comedy, parents, mental health

Simon Brew Mar 9, 2017

As David Baddiel brings My Family: Not The Sitcom back to London, he spares us some time for a chat about inappropriate parenting...

David Baddiel is bringing his acclaimed show, My Family: Not The Sitcom back for a final run at the Vaudeville Theatre in London from the end of this month. The show, that runs from 28th March – 3rd June, sees Baddiel talking frankly about his mother and father, in a way that even the press blurb describes as a “massively disrespectful celebration”.

We chatted to him about the show, and about his recent documentary, The Trouble With Dad. Oh, and we snuck some Statham in there too…

Before we get into the depths of things, can you set the scene. What is your show that you’re bringing back to the London stage?

Yes. I’m doing a show called My Family: Not The Sitcom,

Glasgow Frightfest ’17: ‘The Warrior’s Gate’ Review

Stars: David Bautista, Sienna Guillory, Uriah Shelton, Mark Chao, Francis Ng, Zha Ka, Kara Hui, Dakota Daulby | Written by Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen | Directed by Matthias Hoene

Filmed in 2015, The Warrior’s Gate sees Jack (Shelton), a bullied teenager mistaken for the video game hero he plays in his favourite game, magically transported to China, on a mission to save Su Lin, the princess he had been tasked with protecting. He teams with warrior Zhoo (Chao) and a flaky wizard (Ng) to stop the evil Arun (Bautista) from marrying the princess and get back home. ALong the way he learns bravery, inner strength and, of course, kung-fu!

The first in a three-picture deal between Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp and China’s Fundamental Films, The Warrior’s Gate is a French/Chinese co-production, written by long-time Besson collaborator Robert Mark Kamen (The Karate Kid, Lethal Weapon 3, The Transporter), helmed

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers.
