Star Trek: Discovery episode 1 review - The Vulcan Hello

James Hunt Sep 25, 2017

Exciting! Star Trek: Discovery gets off to an enjoyable, satisfying start. Here's our spoilery review and geeky spots from episode 1...

With almost no advance press for Star Trek: Discovery's airing and a whole heap of suspicious-looking production reshuffles and slippages, you could be forgiven for feeling trepidation about whether it was going to be any good or not. The happy news is that the opening episode, The Vulcan Hello, is exactly what it needed to be: a decent episode of Star Trek.

Indeed, it's comfortably the best opening episode since Tng's Encounter At Farpoint. Surprisingly lean on characters, but dense with plot, the story sees Michael Burnham, aka Number One, encountering a strange artifact in space leading her, her captain and her crew into a

Hey Lrm Weekenders, this week we're featuring some of the most intriguing, powerful, and successful women in Hollywood. Its easy to become fixated on our male action stars, since that's how Hollywood tends to market their films, so we sometimes fail to recognize the contributions and accomplishments of our female action stars! But first, we want to discuss the elephant in the room: the dwindling audiences at movie theaters -- we'll explore some problems, one potential solution, and hopefully provide some insight into an issue that's only going to get worse if everything remains status quo.

Rick Famuyiwa In Talks To Direct Martial Arts Movie: Son of Shaolin

Martial arts movies are true guilty pleasures -- one of the more overlooked and undervalued of all the film genres. I was raised on a steady diet of Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Sonny Chiba, and Chuck Norris films. Later, I got to know Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Jean Claude-Van Damme, Steven Seagal for -- for the better or (sometimes) worse. These amazing fighters led the way for more recent talents, like Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais.

The '70s and '80s were arguably The greatest decades of martial arts movies (Enter the Dragon, Drunken Master, The Octagon, Bloodsport)... sure, you had to squint at times to get past bad acting and absurd plots, but we reveled in the pure visceral insanity of two (or more) trained fighters going toe-to-toe. Karate vs. Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do vs. Muay Thai -- for martial arts junkies, it's incredible to watch

From Angelina Jolie to Daisy Ridley, Here’s the Top 14 Female Action Stars Working Today

From Angelina Jolie to Daisy Ridley, Here’s the Top 14 Female Action Stars Working Today
Way back in 1979, Ridley Scott’s “Alien” brought us our first genuine female action hero in Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Despite the three sequels that followed, Ripley proved to be something of an outlier. Until fairly recently, a woman could kill someone in a movie only if she faced brutal punishment afterward, as in Scott’s “Thelma and Louise,” or in the inevitable fates of Bond girls: They could dole out lethal action, but rarely survived.

Today, ass-kicking women are no longer an anomaly or subject to automatic retribution. This weekend, we watched Scarlett Johansson lay waste to her enemies (although not the box office) in “Ghost in the Shell,” following a path blazed by the likes of Linda Hamilton (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Uma Thurman (“Kill Bill”), and Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). These roles may strike a blow for equality and diversity, but what these women — and

Exclusive interview with actor Eric Jacobus

david j. moore chats with actor Eric Jacobus

The world has yet to learn the name Eric Jacobus. Ladies and gentlemen, hear the name and speak it because he’s here, and he’s about to break through. Working way off the grid and completely off the radar, Jacobus, a practitioner of Hapkido, has been building himself up through impressive short films and totally independent feature films, namely with two feature films Contour (2006) and Death Grip (2012), both of which he wrote, directed, and starred in, and the outstanding short films Rope-a-Dope (2013), Rope-a-Dope 2 (2015), and this year’s martial arts comedy Blindsided (2017). He’s already appeared in the second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy (2014) as Stryker and in Segment A of The ABCs of Death 2 (2014), and he’s on a clear and calculated path of action stardom.

Jackie Chan’s Kung Fu Yoga – Review

Jackie Chan and Stanley-Tong’s Sixth Film Together

Kung Fu Yoga marks the sixth film that Jackie Chan has made together with director Stanley Tong ( Police Story 3, Rumble in the Bronx, Police Story 4, The Myth and Chinese Zodiac (writing credits) ) .

Kung Fu Yoga is a multi-lingual Chinese-Hindi action adventure comedy, co-produced by Taihe Entertainment (India) and Shinework Pictures (China). It’s the first Indian-Chinese co-produced film with the hope that it sets the trend for future projects together for these two countries.

The film also stars Indian actors Sonu Sood, Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur, as well as Aarif Rahmen aka Aarif Lee ( Bruce Lee, My Brother and L.O.R.D).

Hong Kong star Eric Tsang (Infernal Affairs) also makes a relatively brief but equality important appearance. (Eric Tsang also featured in Jackie Chan’s SkipTrace, Accidental Spy, the Lucky Stars series, and the infamous Armour of God…

Movie Review: Kung Fu Yoga is even sillier than its title

Kung Fu Yoga, which casts the sixtysomething Jackie Chan as a mild-mannered archeologist named (wait for it) Jack Chan, is an exercise in quantity over quality: an attempted return to the star’s Hong Kong action-slapstick roots, randomly assembled from pieces of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Pink Panther-era caper comedies, and the little-loved mid-2000s Chan vehicle The Myth (for which it serves as a bizarre quasi-remake), with a Lord Of The Rings fantasy battle sequence, a Fast And Furious-type luxury car chase, a Bollywood dance number, and not one, not two, but four different scenes involving CGI animals thrown in for the hell of it. The non-stop cycling of locations, crowd-pleaser modes, and groan-inducing gags makes for some watchable silliness. But Chan, who reunites here with his Police Story 3: Supercop and Rumble In The Bronx director Stanley Tong (who also helmed The Myth), is no longer

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

Jackie Chan in First Trailer for Stanley Tong's 'Kung Fu Yoga' Comedy

Two new Jackie Chan movies in one month! Yes indeed (Railroad Tigers is the other). Well Go has debuted an official trailer for the action comedy Kung Fu Yoga, starring Jackie Chan, directed by Stanley Tong. When I was younger, one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies was Rumble in the Bronx, an R-rated action comedy set in Brooklyn and it was awesome. Kung Fu Yoga reunites Chan with Supercop and Rumble in the Bronx director Stanley Tong for the first time in years. And as much as I would hope that was a good thing, this looks terrible. The cast includes Amyra Dastur, Aarif Rahman, Sonu Sood, Disha Patani, Lay Zhang, Eric Tsang. It's an India-China co-production and looks like a CGI-fest. But, the trailer is still fun. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Stanley Tong's Kung Fu Yoga, direct from Well Go's YouTube: Jack (Jackie Chan), a world-renowned archaeology professor,

Film Review: ‘Railroad Tigers’

Film Review: ‘Railroad Tigers’
When was the last time you saw a good Jackie Chan movie? Sure, the “Kung Fu Panda” movies are great, but they don’t really count, since that’s just his voice. What has it been — 10 years? 15? — since the chance to see Chan in action really justified the price of admission?

After a long stretch in which he made one, maybe two, movies a year, Chan is scheduled to release five more movies in 2017, after the Chinese action-comedy “Railroad Tigers” (granted, two are voice roles in animated movies). More importantly, though “Railroad Tigers” itself is a tired, often incomprehensible mess about a group of Chinese resistance fighters who use a train loaded with Japanese ammunition as a weapon against their unwelcome invaders, for genuine Jackie Chan fans, it’s evidence that he wasn’t ready to retire from action movies after all, despite comments made to that effect back in
