Most sane people don’t seek out Jean-Claude Van Damme movies for their dramatic depth. That’s like judging an Adam Sandler comedy on how eloquent a critique it offers of the American political system. So, should you sit down to watch Enemies Closer, temper your expectations. If you go in expecting cringeworthy dialogue, ridiculous plot twists, campy acting and enjoyable action sequences, you certainly won’t be disappointed. But if you feel the urge to ask Enemies Closer for anything more, then you’re watching the wrong movie.
As the movie opens, a plane carrying large quantities of heroin crashes into a lake on the Us-Canadian border, drawing the attention of drug dealers lead by the maniacal Xander (Van Damme). Henry (Tom Everett Scott) is a forest ranger and former Navy Seal who lives out by the lake, tending to the park that surrounds it and attempting to forget his past transgressions while enlisted. »

Released at the height of the straight to video techno-horror phase that rode in on the coat-tails of The Lawnmower Man and also saw the release of films such as Evolver and Brainscan, Arcade was, I think, unfairly overlooked, at least in the UK, at the time due to poor distribution, a lack of big-name stars (unlike Brainscan which had a post-T2 Edward Furlong, the biggest stars in Arcade were A Christmas Story’s Peter Billingsley and St:tng’s John De Lancie), and effects that – even though they were apparently redone after the film was completed – did not compare to other CGI-heavy films at the time.

Will Smith already said that he won't return for any more "Men in Black" installments, which is likely why Sony Pictures is planning a reboot. According to Deadline, the studio is still moving forward with the new film and has set a producing team to move things forward. Meanwhile, Sony is also progressing with its reboot of the "Zorro" franchise by hiring Chris Boal (The Hurt Locker) to write the script. The plan is to make a film similar in style to "The Dark Knight" by creating a new backstory, gritty realism and an emotional core. "Zorro" will have sword fighting, combined with the martial arts that came from Europe and created a deadly combination of swords, daggers, grappling and bare knuckles. »

Fight Club has been recreated as a retro beat 'em up.
The 1999 film adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel has been given a 16-bit makeover by YouTube channel CineFix.
Complete with authentic-looking dialogue boxes and sound effects, the three-minute video 'play-through' follows Edward Norton's unnamed protagonist through his escapades with fearless fighter Tyler Durden.
Outside fight sequences, the player also encounters bonus game scenarios that involve sliding with Norton's power animal penguin and collecting bags of fat from the dumpsters behind a liposuction clinic ready to transform them into soap.
Part of the user's '8 Bit Cinema' series, the remake follows pixel-perfect versions of The Dark Knight and Inception. »
"Sin City is where you go in with your eyes open – or you don't come out at all." So says Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) during the trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez' acclaimed 2005 noir-thriller. Though barely over a minute long, the clip offers a gripping preview of the seedy brilliance that lies ahead – including lots of sex, gun-wielding "dames," creepy color schemes and hair-raising one-liners.

Today we have a new poster for the upcoming "Transcendence" sci-fi thriller, starring Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara and Cole Hauser. Check it out below. Plot: Dr. Will Caster (Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed - to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can... but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as »
While Sony’s The Mask of Zorro was a huge success back in 1998 – and is largely considered to be a great action movie to this day – its 2005 followup, The Legend of Zorro, made significantly less money and was pretty much universally panned (perhaps it’s no coincidence that the first film was wall-to-wall stunt-work and the second film depended more heavily on CGI).In the time since, Zorro’s modern-day counterpart, Batman, has enjoyed incredible cinematic success – box office, reviews, you name it – at the hands of Christopher Nolan, and is set to make a return to the big screen with Batman vs. ...

The post Sony Hires Writer for Gritty ‘Zorro’ Reboot in the Style of ‘The Dark Knight’ appeared first on Screen Rant.

The project is based on Isabel Allende's 2005 novel of the same name, with Stephen Scaia and Matthew Federman previously working on the script. This reboot is said to be less of a traditional swashbuckling tale and more of a dark and gritty version similar to The Dark Knight, giving this iconic character a new origin story with an "emotional core." There will be swordplay featured in the story, although it will be infused with European martial arts that combine swords and daggers with grappling and bare knuckle combat. Before he became a writer, Chris Boal was a competitive fencer on the national circuit.
In today’s day and age, movie franchise reboots are a dime a dozen. Some successfully introduce characters to a new generation, while the rest go back on the shelf and await their next reboot. Zorro was one of those characters, after coming back from the dead in 1998′s The Mask of Zorro, starring Antonio Banderas in the titular role, and its sequel, 2005′s The Legend of Zorro. The first film grossed $250 million worldwide and earned an 86% on Rotten Tomatoes. The follow-up made only $142 million and fared far worse with critics, landing a sad 26%.
Thus, the franchise was put aside and placed on Sony’s reboot list, though it apparently has been a priority “for some time.” Now that it’s been nearly ten years since Zorro was last in theaters, the studio is moving forward with the reboot and has hired Chris Boal to pen the screenplay. Boal is relatively new to the business, »

This spring, Johnny Depp will become one with a computer in Transcendence, and the second trailer for the directorial debut from cinematographer Wally Pfister certainly showed off the scale of this technological thriller. The film isn't too far away from hitting theaters, and now the hype machine is getting a little more generic and safe in trying to get audiences interested. A new poster has just arrived and it makes full use of Depp's handsome face, but almost as if the poster was accessed by dial-up, half of the image is pixelated. I still think this film feels like a 90s thriller with contemporary technology, but we'll see. Here's the new poster for Wally Pfister's Transcendence from Yahoo: Transcendence is directed by Wally Pfister (cinematographer on Inception and The Dark Knight trilogy) and written by Jack Paglen, with rewrites by Alex Paraskevas & Jordan Goldberg. Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp »

Back in 2008 I posted an article headlined "MTV Proves Their Irrelevance with 2008 MTV Movie Award Winners". Since then I haven't posted an article announcing any of the winners at the MTV Movie Awards and only last year did I begin posting the nominees once again. This morning I posted the list of 2014 MTV Movie Award nominees and one of the first comments was, "Since when does Ros cover the MTV awardsc This doesn't feel right." I can understand the sentiment, but in this day and age is there much of an argument that makes an award show such as the Oscars any more prestigious than the MTV Movie Awardsc Just a couple days ago, John Horn at the "Los Angeles Times" quoted two Oscar voters who privately admitted they didn't see 12 Years a Slave but voted for it anyway. They didn't watch it because they felt it "would be upsetting »

I've been wracking my brain ever since reading some quotes from Skyfall and Bond 24 scripter John Logan in the pages of Empire magazine, trying to figure out just what exactly he's talking about. I gave Skyfall a "B" when I reviewed it back in 2012, but I would dial that grade back even further now and when I read Logan saying, "The new movie continues the themes of Skyfall. Some of the characters and themes that we began to introduce in Skyfall will play out," it makes me think even less of the film. What "themes" are carrying overc Global terrorismc Because that's always been a Bond theme so I doubt it could be that. And if it happens to be more James Bond mommy and daddy issues, I'll pass. I also hope this next one takes more of a cue from past Bond films rather than inspiration from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. »
