Beyond ‘Baby Driver’: 4 Action Genres Every Diehard Fan Must Know

7 July 2017 10:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Anthony Bourdain took issue with “Baby Driver” in a blunt tweet a few days after the movie’s release, the celebrity chef was advocating for another kind of action movie experience. He followed up his initial outburst by singling out “The Raid,” the bloody Indonesian martial arts film, as a superior movie. Whether or not the comparison is fair, Bourdain did hit on two crucial factors with respect to the action genre — it is big, and it is global. No discerning viewer can truly claim complete knowledge of the genre before at least getting familiar with the range of possibilities around the world.

Here are the four essential subgenres every diehard fan should know. If Bourdain traveled the world going to film festivals in search of authentic regional action films, instead of food, these are the sorts of kickass flavors likely to entice him.

‘Okja’s Bong Joon-Ho: Why Creative Control Is A Director’s Best Protection – Deadline Disruptors

18 May 2017 4:58 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

In 2013, three of South Korea's most famous and influential directors went to work for Hollywood. Park Chan-wook made the stylized Gothic thriller Stoker at Fox, Kim Jee-woon went to Lionsgate for the Arnold Schwarzenegger shoot-'em-up The Last Stand, and, in the most publicized instance of them all, Bong Joon-ho teamed up with The Weinstein Company for his sci-fi graphic novel adaptation Snowpiercer. They were all in for a shock; treated as royalty in their homeland, the… »

Movie Review – Aftermath (2017)

1 April 2017 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Aftermath, 2017.

Directed by Elliott Lester.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Scoot McNairy, Maggie Grace, Kevin Zegers, Hannah Ware, and Glenn Morshower.

Synopsis:

Two strangers’ lives become inextricably bound together after a devastating plane crash. Inspired by actual events, Aftermath tells a story of guilt and revenge after an air traffic controller’s (Scoot McNairy) error causes the death of a construction foreman’s (Arnold Schwarzenegger) wife and daughter.

Since returning to movies following his stint as the Governator, Arnold Schwarzenegger has had a mixed bag of films. In truth he spent the late 90’s, and the early part of the new millennium in a steep decline before his political sabbatical. Among a failed attempt at franchise resurrection with Terminator Genisys, Arnold has tried to vary his roles and attempt to branch out into more grounded, human roles. There’s been a distinct and deliberate attempt to acknowledge his age, and to try »

The Age of Shadows Review

21 March 2017 7:39 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Andy Furlong

The innovative Kim Jee-Woon films have always been characterised by a stylistic blend of film genres. A Tale of Two Sisters is recognised as one of the most influential Korean horrors ever due to its stunning visuals and challenging story, while The Good The Bad and The Weird was not only a widespread hit but also an utterly distinctive contribution to Korean Cinema.

But it was his next film, the complicated revenge drama I Saw The Devil that really elevated Kim to an entirely different level and cemented his reputation as one of the most unique voices in cinema. The Age of Shadows marks Kim’s first Korean Film in six years after his flirtation with Hollywood ended in the disappointingly received The Last Stand. Thankfully, The Age of Shadows is a return to form for the talented director and may just be his best film to date. »

Movie Review – The Age of Shadows (2016)

27 February 2017 5:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Age of Shadows, 2016.

Directed by Kim Jee-woon.

Starring Lee Jung-chool, Um Tae-goo, Yoo Gong, Byung-hun Lee, and Han Ji-min.

Synopsis:

Set in the late 1920s, The Age of Shadows follows the cat-and-mouse game that unfolds between a group of resistance fighters trying to bring in explosives from Shanghai to destroy key Japanese facilities in Seoul, and Japanese agents trying to stop them. A talented Korean-born Japanese police officer, who was previously in the independence movement himself, is thrown into a dilemma between the demands of his reality and the instinct to support a greater cause.

Kim Jee-woon’s The Age of Shadows sees the prolific South Korean director return to his homeland for a brand new action thriller following his brief 2013 excursion to Hollywood for the Arnie comeback vehicle, The Last Stand.  The director – who is legendary among aficionados of Asian genre cinema after a handful of masterpieces »

‘Aftermath’ Trailer: Arnold Schwarzenegger Demands an Apology in the Darren Aronofsky-Produced Thriller

7 February 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been doing some good work these past few years not enough people are seeing. The projects he’s been in — Escape PlanMaggie, and The Last Stand — have problems, but he’s rarely one of them. He gives one of his most natural performances to date in Maggie, but the movie, like some of Schwarzenegger’s other recent […]

Arnold Schwarzenegger, A Career In Crisis: Why the ’80s Action Icon Can’t Mount a Comeback

26 January 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This can’t be what Arnold Schwarzenegger imagined 2017 to look like: Sure, there’s a reality star in the White House, the Chicago Cubs are World Series champions, and his arch-rival (/best celebrity friend), Sylvester Stallone, is a recent Academy Award nominee. Yet for the ex-governor of California, far more confounding is how he became an ex-celebrity.

Schwarzenegger spent his acting life amassing a domestic box office of more than $1.8 billion. That haul came from comedies, like “Twins” ($111 million); science fiction, like “Total Recall” ($119 million) and “Terminator 2” ($204 million); or — his bread and butter — action flicks a la “True Lies” ($146 million) and “Eraser” ($101 million). But one unfortunate connection for all of Schwarzenegger’s films grossing $100 million-plus: They were all made before the year 2000.

Since the dawn of the new millennium, Schwarzenegger’s name above the title has carried less weight at the box office, resulting in drastically lower figures. How he »

Terminator Reboot Teams Deadpool Director and Producer James Cameron

20 January 2017 5:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With certain rights to the iconic Terminator franchise reverting back to Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day creator/director James Cameron in 2019, the filmmaker is prepping his return to the series. Cameron is planning to 'Godfather' a 'reboot and conclusion' of the first two movies, with Deadpool director Tim Miller in early talks to direct. David Ellison, who bought the franchise rights from his sister Megan Ellison in 2013, is funding an "exploratory effort" that brings some of the top sci-fi authors together to "find the movie creatively."

Deadline broke the news, but even the site concedes that it's unclear what direction the story will go in. After directing 1984's The Terminator and its blockbuster 1991 sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day, James Cameron backed away from the franchise, and he wasn't involved in 2003's Terminator 3: Rise Against the Machines, the 2008 TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 2009's Terminator Salvation or last year's Terminator Genisys. »
