After a week of drudgery at the theatres when we were coaxed into wading through a self-designed epic slush on war and love, it is such a welcome relief to go to the theatres just to have a unpretentious good time. No offence meant. None taken.
Come, unwind with Vidyut Jamwal as he cracks some serious bones and Fera codes, brings India’s wealth back into the country and saves civilization from catastrophe. All done in the vein of a comic book hero who forgot his cape in transit.
Okay, Jamwal is ambitious, And sorry to say, he can’t act. He can fight like a wild untamed beast, though. His reflexes in the action scenes, specially in the hand-to-hand combat with actor Thakur Anoop Singh at the climax on the rooftop of skyscraper, are to die for. »

Documentary fans are well served by these 11 great documentary series and features, currently available on Netflix UK...
In recent years, even months, Netflix has upped its game. No longer just a site to instantly stream an old title you might have once picked up in Blockbuster, it's become a hub of quality new and original film and television and this is by no means limited to its vast selection of fiction.

With the scope of possibility in visual effects and the boundlessness of imagination there are very few places we cannot explore in fiction nowadays… that is unless we explore stories that are stranger than fiction. There is a tangible thirst for the real; the overwhelming response to recent Netflix documentary Making A Murderer in the news and social media, as just one example, exposes the desire for and »
Kevin Smith has revealed via Instagram that he is planning, and indeed has already written a script for a Jay and Silent Bob movie reboot. The news follows a false start on a further sequel to Clerks and a Mallrats TV series. It even has a title: Jay & Silent Bob Reboot.
“While I love playing with someone else’s new toys on ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl,’ I’m getting eager to play with my old toys again in the inter-connected View Askewniverse I spent the first half of my career creating,” Smith said.
“And so all last month, I had the time of my life laughing while writing ‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot’ – a fun flick in which the Jersey boys have to go back to Hollywood to stop a brand new reboot of the old ‘Bluntman & Chronic Movie’ they hated so much.”
“It’s a tongue-in-cheek, silly-ass satire that »

“This is not a drill,” Kevin Smith is going to reimagine Jay and Silent Bob in a new movie.
“My next flick will star @JayMewes and is entitled Jay And Silent Bob Reboot,” Smith wrote to Twitter.
Director Smith, of course, plays Silent Bob, one half of a dope-dealing duo that hung outside the comic book shop in his 1994 movie debut Clerks. As befitting his name, Silent Bob doesn’t have much to say, he leaves that to Jay, played by Jason Mewes. The pair reunited for Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997), Dogma (1999), and Clerks II (2006) in cameo roles before taking revenge with their own movie, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back from 2001.
Smith wrote to his Instagram account that his planned Clerks III got sidetracked »
You’re nothing in Hollywood unless you have a million and a half dead projects in your wake. Just look at Guillermo del Toro. The man has no less than 75 of them going on at a time, and almost all of them tend to get pushed to the wayside for one reason or another. Writer/director/podcaster/geek Kevin Smith is no exception to this rule. These past few years have been pretty busy for the creative stoner, In a relatively short amount of time, he’s put a couple films (Tusk and Yoga Hosers), developed even more films that include Moose Jaws, Clerks III and Mallrats 2 — the last of which he tried to turn into a series — and that’s not even including his directing work on shows like The Flash and Supergirl. For a stoner, the man sure knows how to stay productive.

Over the past several years, filmmaker Kevin Smith has been talking about making sequels to his first two films, with Clerks III and Mallrats 2 both being developed extensively. At one point, the Mallrats sequel was going to become a TV show, but today the filmmaker announced that his next project will actually be a remake of his 2001 comedy Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. The filmmaker announced the news with a lengthy statement on Instagram. Here's the first half of that statement below, where he reveals what happened to both the Clerks III and Mallrats 2 projects.
"This is not a drill! This is an actual image from my laptop! Yes, Kids - @jayandsilentbob are coming back! Here's the story: Sadly, Clerks III can't happen (one of our four leads opted out of the flick). So I worked on a #Mallrats movie instead... which also didn't happen because it turned into a #Mallrats series. »
