8 Great Foreign Action Films Streaming on Netflix

12 June 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Subscription streaming services require digging to discover their full value. For example, while I’ve been prepping for IndieWire’s Best Action Films of the 21st Century (coming later this week), I was pleasantly surprised to find how many quality action films were available on Netflix — including works by a number of non-American auteurs. From martial arts to gangster shoot ’em ups to comedy-action films, here are eight highly original, well crafted, director-driven pieces of entertainment that could serve as a welcome alternative this summer when your local cineplex feels like a boring rerun.

Shaolin Soccer” (2001)

Stephen Chow’s films (“Kung Fu Hustle”) are a wonderful and loony mix of comedy and action that have an infectious spirit. For this film the actor/writer/director adds a sports movie to the mix, which might sound bizarre, but once seeing it you’ll wonder why no one has made a martial arts soccer film before. »

12 June 2017 6:34 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Ah, another E3 season is upon us, breathe it in.  Just like the last 2 years, Cinelinx once again has boots on the ground and it’s time for another of my Recaps, but this time I’m not alone!  Please welcome the newest member of the Cinelinx E3 Team, Aaron, as we discuss our impressions from Day 1 of the E3 2017 weekend!

 

Matt’s Takes:

Lines and Lines and Lines of EA Play:  Just like last year, Electronic Arts kicked off the E3 season with their brand-new presentation format, EA Play.  Unlike last year, they invited way more people than they could actually fit.  Hundreds of people from around the world flocked to the Hollywood Palladium, creating a line that made circles around the entire event area.  Despite many tickets registered and press access received, many members of the gaming community were turned away after waiting in line for countless hours. »

Iron Fist: What We Want To See In Season 2

30 May 2017 2:29 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Marvel and Netflix have created something truly special with their four superhero shows: Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. They've established a unique, ongoing, and shared universe that not only respects each character's source material, but also builds upon and expands their lore. Fans have clearly responded, as many media outlets report that these are some of the most-popular shows on Netflix.

Daredevil is heading into its third season, while Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are each preparing for their second, but what about the fate of Iron Fist? According to SuperBroMovies, Danny Rand himself, actor Finn Jones, will soon issue a Season 2 announcement. While that's certainly welcome news for the whole Marvel/Netflix enterprise, it's probably safe to say that Iron Fist was the most flawed of the four series and in dire need of fine-tuning.

'Dealer Healer': Film Review

21 May 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Hong Kong’s rampant police corruption and gangster domination of the 1970s and early-’80s provides the colorful backdrop for Dealer Healer, a bad-boy-makes-good drama based on the true story of junkie and dealer Peter Chan Shun-chi (who is executive producer), who served five years in prison, found God and opened a rehab facility for guys just like him. Meticulously designed and costumed — sometimes too much so — to recapture the grimy, gaudy ’70s, director Lawrence Lau has done a fine job of recreating the period, but he’s let down by an overstuffed script by Chan Man-keung (Kung Fu Hustle) that »

Marvel's Iron Fist episode 9 viewing notes: The Mistress Of All Agonies

James Hunt Mar 28, 2017

The Mistress Of All Agonies is a fairly slow Iron Fist episode, even by this show's standards. Spoilers ahead...

These viewing notes contain spoilers.

Iron Fist, the fourth and final member of the Defenders, has finally made his debut. As with previous Netflix series, we’ll be reviewing an episode a day highlighting the characters, reference points and easter eggs we spotted. Feel free to read along as you watch too, but please don’t spoil future episodes for anyone in the comments!

Episode 9 opened with the least surprising resurrection of all time, as Harold returned from the swamp where Ward dumped him. Do we think Ward will have to face the consequences of dumping those other two bodies there? Unlikely.

As it was, I found Harold’s zombified stroll across New York and subsequent ice-cream scoop murder of his point-free assistant Kyle borderline cringeworthy, »
