Film Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’

Film Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’
“The Hitman’s Bodyguard” is about as close to a live-action cartoon as you’re likely to get this year — you know, the kind where someone blows a cannonball-shaped hole through Wile E. Coyote’s abdomen or a stick of dynamite reduces him to a pile of cinders, and the next thing you know, he’s up and chasing the Road Runner again. That’s not a style that works much of the time (see “Shoot ’Em Up” or early Arnold Schwarzenegger flop “The Villain”), but in the hands of “The Expendables 3” helmer Patrick Hughes — and more importantly, owing to the chemistry of stars Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds — it makes for a delightfully ridiculous screwball action comedy.

The premise is simple: Jackson plays the hitman, Darius Kincaid, Reynolds plays his bodyguard, Michael Bryce, and they both need to get from London to the Hague without getting killed. That

Boone The Bounty Hunter – Review

Review by Mark Longden

Coming soon to a VOD platform or Walmart near you is Boone The Bounty Hunter , and it’s one you definitely should be checking out. You don’t even need to be like me, a person who loves movies starring wrestlers and good old 90s-style action, to have a good time watching it.

John Hennigan is our star / producer / co-writer. After graduating from college with a film degree, he wrestled for WWE under the names Johnny Nitro and John Morrison, and he was pretty good at it; he now works for Aaa (a Mexico-based promotion) and Lucha Underground (the MTV wrestling show). But he’s always had a passion for the same sorts of movies I love – 80s / 90s comic action, kung fu, chase movies – and given the chance, he’s made this.

He plays Boone, a TV bounty hunter – his resemblance to any famous TV

The Flash Season 3 Episode 14 Review: Attack on Central City

  • TVfanatic
Does Barry want to be the kind of hero that kills?

It's something the speedster considered when Grodd arrived on Earth-1 with an army of gorillas on The Flash Season 3 Episode 14 "Attack on Central City."

But was he pondering the option because he believed it was the right thing to do? Or because he wanted to save Iris?

The answer likely lies somewhere in the middle. 

It's understandable for Barry to be frustrated. As he said, Grodd manages to come back stronger each time. The only way to make sure that doesn't happen again is for the gorilla to die.

Barry even questioned if he made the right choice letting Solovar live on The Flash Season 3 Episode 13. He started to think mercy might not be the way to go.

Iris: Wait. You want to kill Grodd?

Barry: Why not? That's how their society in Gorilla City works. Kill or be killed.

Bounty Hunter Dlc released for Uncharted 4

Naughty Dog has released the latest multiplayer Dlc for the hit adventure game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. This latest Dlc, titled Bounty Hunters, introduces new tools to capture and create your own gameplay videos, a new objective game mode, new weapons and a new map.

The new game mode is Bounty Hunter which sees two teams compete to reach a set score by collecting bounties from opponents. When a player is taken down they drop a 10 point bounty which must be collected before the enemy can ‘save’ it first. During the battle each team will randomly have a captain selected who, when shot, will yield between 60-120 points. However, these points take time to collect meaning players must work together to give their team time to collect or ‘save’ the points.

Book Review – Star Wars: Aftermath – Life Debt

Ricky Church reviews Star Wars: Aftermath – Life Debt…

Though Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released months ago, there are still some burning questions left regarding the 30-year gap between the Star Wars trilogies. We’ve slowly been getting more answers about some of these events with books like Bloodline or the Poe Dameron comic and now we’ve gotten more information with Chuck Wendig’s second book in his Star Wars: Aftermath trilogy, Aftermath – Life Debt. The second installment paints a fascinating look at the crumbling Empire as Wendig brings in more of the original heroes in this adventure.

Former Rebel pilot Norra Wexley and her team are tasked with hunting down Imperial officers and deserters while the newly promoted Grand Admiral Rae Sloane plots with her mysterious benefactor to return the Empire to its former glory. Meanwhile, Chancellor Mon Mothma and Princess Leia work to make

Who Shot First, According To The Guy Who Played Greedo

It may be the single most controversial change to a piece of fiction in the history of time. Seriously, this one still gets people upset. In 1996 George Lucas added blaster fire to the cantina scene of the original Star Wars: A New Hope  with Han Solo and Greedo... and the world went crazy. George Lucas has said before that Greedo always shot first, but that it simply wasn.t clear. One guy from the set says that.s not true, and Han Solo fired the only shot. And this guy would know, as he.s the one who got hit. Paul Blake was the actor who played Greedo. The bounty hunter tracks his prey to the Mos Eisley cantina where he confronts the smuggler before planning to turn him in to Jabba the Hutt. In the original version of the sequence we see Han Solo blast Greedo from under

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi movie review: American mercenary

Michael Bay propagandizes for a right-wing idea of “true America,” seething with disdain for anyone who isn’t a former elite soldier turned mercenary. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a Michael Bay fan

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This purportedly true account of the 2012 “Battle of Benghazi” opens with American military contractors Jack Silva (John Krasinski: The Wind Rises, Monsters University), who has just arrived in town, and his old buddy Tyrone “Rone” Woods (James Badge Dale: The Walk, Parkland) bluffing their way past a roadblock by armed Libyans. It doesn’t matter what side the Libyans are on; in the chaos that erupted after Gaddafi’s death: the point is that they are Libyans — suspiciously lawless violent folk, that is, who cannot even get their own nation under control — and not Americans.

The Incredible Adventures Of Van Helsing: Final Cut Review

Van Helsing has really been through the wringer. He’s spent three titles fighting off steampunk nightmares, demons, ghouls, and a slew of other supernatural cannon fodder. Now, he’s back for The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut, which combines the three previews game into one package with a slew of new features. It allows players to utilize all six character classes, including new ones that were introduced in the third outing, and play across all three games with one Helsing. Along with a myriad of other smaller improvements, it also adds an endgame with a new level cap of 100, introducing a glory system, rare items, daily events and a full multiplayer mode.

The trio of Helsing titles have always been great Arpg games, with a few flaws here and there that stop them from pushing the likes of Diablo III or Torchlight 2 from the top of the genre pile.

Trailer Trashin’: Breaking Down the Teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight

  • CinemaNerdz
We’re more than halfway through August, dear readers, and the summer movie season is almost over. But there are always new trailers for me to watch and analyze. This week’s installment of Trailer Trashin’ takes a look at the teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s next film The Hateful Eight.

Premise: In post-Civil War Wyoming, eight strangers seek shelter in a haberdashery during a blizzard. But they soon get involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. Will they survive, and are they really who they say they are?

My take: Back in November 2013, Quentin Tarantino announced that his next film would be The Hateful Eight, his second Western after Django Unchained (2012). But in January 2014, after Tarantino had given copies of his first draft screenplay of the film to a few trusted colleagues, a copy of the script was leaked online. Tarantino was furious, filed a lawsuit against the gossip blog Gawker,

Every 'Hateful Eight' Character Poster Is Here
After debuting seven character posters for The Hateful Eight over the past few weeks, The Weinstein Company has rounded out the full collection. The studio debuted the one-sheet for Samuel L. Jackson's Major Marquis Warren, a.k.a. The Bounty Hunter earlier today. It remains to be seen if the studio will roll out one-sheets for the slew of supporting characters between now and the December 25 release, but, for now, at least we can see all of main The Hateful Eight posters right here.

Set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as "The Hangman," will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis

You'll love these posters for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight
After the success of 2012's Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino is returning to westerns with this year's The Hateful Eight, and here are the posters to prove it.

Scored by Ennio Morricone and set in a snowswept tavern in the Rockies, it features many Qt veterans butting heads as dark and dangerous characters.

Eagle-eyed readers may have noticed there are only six posters available currently, and that's because the one-sheet for Samuel L Jackson's ne'er-do-well - Major Marquis Warren, "The Bounty Hunter" - has not been released yet.

This is in addition to Kurt Russell's John Ruth, "The Hangman", and Jennifer Jason Leigh's Daisy Domergue, "The Prisoner", sharing a poster, as the two come as a pair.

Wordy, wild and undeniably cool, the highly-anticipated character piece is set to hit select cinemas on Christmas Day 2015, and go wide on January 8, 2016, just in time for awards season.

'Hateful Eight' looks good, but 'Lion' may be Harvey Weinstein's secret Oscar player
Cannes — Harvey Weinstein appears to be in a good place. The Weinstein Company is, after all, coming off three-straight hits with "The Imitation Game," "Paddington" and "Woman in Gold." Thursday evening the industry titan held court for his annual Cannes preview, noting that he loved this year's slate while insisting that that's not always the case. The highlight of the evening was intended to be the first footage screened of Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight," but this pundit was much more impressed with Garth Davis' "Lion." Based on the true story of Saroo Brierley, "Lion" chronicles how, thanks to his inherent curiosity, a 5-year-old boy is separated from his family in India. Now, 25 years later, Saroo (Dev Patel) has grown up after being raised by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham) and begins a search for the biological family he believes is still waiting for him to come home.
