‘The Hurricane Heist’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Toby Kebbell, Maggie Grace, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Melissa Bolona, Christian Contreras, James Cutler, Ben Cross, Ed Birch | Written by Scott Windhauser, Jeff Dixon | Directed by Rob Cohen

A heist takes place during a hurricane… It’s difficult to imagine a sillier plot outside of Snakes on a Plane, but, like that film, The Hurricane Heist takes its ridiculous premise and runs with it, delivering about as much fun as it’s possible to have with a film this stupid.

Every action hero needs a tragic backstory, so here we get two for the price of one, as young brothers Will and Breeze witness their father getting crushed by a water tower during Hurricane Andrew in 1992. And as if that wasn’t traumatic enough, the CGI clouds morph into a shrieking skull face, just to ram the point home.

Cut to the present day and the brothers’ lives have

Film Review: ‘Tea With the Dames’

Film Review: ‘Tea With the Dames’
There are some films that deliver with such literal-minded generosity on the promise of their titles that all you can do in response is applaud, and in that respect — if no other — “Tea With the Dames” is the new “Snakes on a Plane.” Roger Michell’s documentary offers dames and tea and pretty much nothing else. Happily, that turns out to be enough for a wholly delightful talkathon, shot on location in the rambling country pile that Plowright once shared with Laurence Olivier. For the tea in question is not so much the beverage as a warm, steady stream of gossip, spilled lavishly, as four of the pre-eminent British actors of their generation reflect mirthfully on their careers, their lives and lovers, their ongoing insecurities and some 60 years of friendship between them.

Devoid of technical fuss or ambition, “Tea With the Dames” is hardly vital cinema. In the U.K.

The Meg Review

When you’re tangling with the Megalodon, just opting for “a bigger boat” isn’t going to cut it. No, it takes a steely-faced action hero like Jason Statham — his Fast and Furious co-star Dwayne Johnson must have been busy this week — to take on the prehistoric giant shark that gives The Meg its all-too-casual title. Shouldn’t these two at least get to know each other a little better before Statham levies nicknames on his arch-nemesis?

The actor plays a deep-sea rescue diver here who’s pulled out of retirement to save his ex-wife (Jessica McNamee) and her team from the aforementioned sea monster. You see, there’s a tragedy in his past that crippled his ability to do his job and saddles him with a personal connection to the beast he’s recruited to confront. Needless to say, lives are lost, and it all winds up with Statham

The Meg review – Jason Statham versus prehistoric megashark

Nonsense science and monster-movie cliches pile up in the latest marauding-shark thriller – but it’s lots of fun, too

Last week, the Academy invited its Twitter followers to boil down the plot of their favourite film to five words. Here’s a plot that needs no boiling: Jason Statham versus prehistoric megashark. That formula might merely have generated a boneheaded Jaws reboat [sic], or a flimsy disappointment along the lines of 2006’s Snakes on a Plane, where movie wound up secondary to pitch. The face-off we actually get is on an acceptable par with 1999’s enjoyably lively Deep Blue Sea, where LL Cool J had his parrot chomped by an angry Frankenshark: its wittily handled pulp will do you just fine on a Friday or Saturday night, given the right expectations.

Once more, nonsense science (“Are you saying we’ve opened up a superhighway for giant sharks?”) lashes together a string of monster-movie cliches,

Jason Statham And ‘The Meg’ Director Detail Disappointments In The Shark Film Just Before It Hits Theaters

Without seeing the film yet myself, it’s hard for me to say what I expect from “The Meg.” On the one hand, the trailers all point towards a fun, end-of-summer romp that features Jason Statham (always entertaining) fighting a massive shark (should be entertaining) to the death. As a fan of ridiculous action films, this sounds like a good time at the theater. However, there’s this nagging feeling in the back of my head that we could be looking at the next “Snakes on a Plane” (*shudder*).

Career Breakthroughs: Samuel L. Jackson

  • Cinelinx
This month we look at the interesting stories of how some of the biggest names in movies got their big breakthrough. Today we take a look at Samuel L. Jackson.

Samuel Leroy Jackson plays characters with opinions, attitudes, and swagger. His oversized personality comes through on the big screen in a way that makes you sit up straight and take notice. Whether he’s playing a bit part in a crime drama, or the star of an action-comedy, there are few other actors that can make the type of impression that Samuel L. Jackson does. His most famous roles have transcended the movie theater to become icons in pop culture. Think of Jules in Pulp Fiction, Nick Fury in the McU, Neville Flynn in Snakes on a Plane, Arnold in Jurassic Park, Zeus Carver in Die Hard with a Vengeance, Mace Windu in the Star wars prequels, or even his

Samuel L. Jackson movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘The Incredibles,’ ‘Jungle Fever,’ ‘The Avengers’

Samuel L. Jackson movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘The Incredibles,’ ‘Jungle Fever,’ ‘The Avengers’
Samuel L. Jackson is currently reprising one of his more popular performances as the voice of one of the characters in the Disney/Pixar film “Incredibles 2.” While he has become a ubiquitous presence in film in recent years Jackson struggled for many years to gain prominence as an actor.

While his film and television credits date all the way back to 1972, for the next two decades, his most regular and probably profitable job was being Bill Cosby’s stand in for his sitcom “The Cosby Show.” Jackson did have a small role in the acclaimed Milos Forman film “Ragtime” in 1981, and he worked a lot in the theater both in New York and in regional markets. His first New York Theater credit was in an all African-American production of “Mother Courage” at the Public Theater in New York. He also appeared frequently in the plays of August Wilson and

Having made $177 million worldwide, it comes as no surprise to hear that Millennium Films are working on a follow-up to 2017’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

THR reports that although Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson (Snakes on a Plane) haven’t signed on yet, the working title of The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife is being displayed on posters around the Cannes Film Festival.

Patrick Hughes (The Expendables 3) is rumoured to be returning to orchestrate the mayhem, while Tom O’Connor (Ironbark) will be fulfilling the same duties by working on the script for the sequel.

Samuel L. Jackson 'Not Positive' Black Panther Will 'Change the Dynamic of Black' Films
Black Panther just passed Titanic as the North American box office’s third top-grossing title of all time, but Samuel L. Jackson isn’t convinced that the movie represents the kind of landmark moment for African Americans in Hollywood that some critics have suggested.

“I’m not positive that Black Panther is going to change the dynamic of black stories being told in Hollywood and being accepted all over the world,” Jackson, 69, recently told Vogue.

For the actor, part of the problem lies with the film’s genre. “It’s an action-adventure story and a lot of people like those,

‘The Hurricane Heist’ Review

Stars: Toby Kebbell, Maggie Grace, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Melissa Bolona, Christian Contreras, James Cutler, Ben Cross, Ed Birch | Written by Scott Windhauser, Jeff Dixon | Directed by Rob Cohen

It appears to be the season for ridiculously dumb, yet surprisingly entertaining popcorn movies. Hot on the heels of Pacific Rim: Uprising comes The Hurricane Heist, in which, yes, a heist takes place during a hurricane. It’s difficult to imagine a sillier plot outside of Snakes on a Plane, but, like that film, The Hurricane Heist takes its ridiculous premise and runs with it, delivering about as much fun as it’s possible to have with a film this stupid.

Every action hero needs a tragic backstory, so here we get two for the price of one, as young brothers Will and Breeze (yep, there’s a character called Breeze in a hurricane movie) witness their father getting crushed by

‘Flight From Hell’ Review

Stars: Ed Westwick, Zhu Zhu, Leon Lee, Cary Alexander, Johann Helf, Linlin Jiang, Didi Qian, Emily Sansiri, Alexander Winters | Written and Directed by Vincent Zhou

So the official synopsis for Flight From Hell, aka Last Flight, reads like this: “As an old Boeing 747 takes off for its last red-eye flight from a small Pacific island, unusual events occur intermittently. While all the passengers are panic, the captain and the chief flight attendant try to lead the investigation.”

Sound familiar? It should. For that’s essentially the core plot of the Brandon Routh starring Lost in the Pacific – a film made by Vincent Zhou, the same writer/director as this. Like his other plane-set film, Flight From Hell is another English/Mandarin co-production that features an international cast, lead this time by Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) and Zhu Zhu (Cloud Atlas) as the planes pilot and heroic flight attendant respectively. Though to be fair to Zhou,

12 Strong movie review: America enters the “graveyard of empires”

MaryAnn’s quick take… Tense but never sensationalized action adventure about the first post–9/11 Us foray into Afghanistan, an extraordinary culture clash and mashup of medieval and modern technologies. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

A month after 9/11, an elite team of soldiers, Us Army Green Berets, had already helicoptered into the remote mountains of northern Afghanistan on a top-secret mission: to support tribal warlord General Abdul Rashid Dostum, part of the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance, in an effort to retake the Taliban stronghold of Mazar-i-Sharif, an essential first step in defeating the Al-Qaeda–supporting regime. 12 Strong tells their now-declassified story, and it’s a case of “If it weren’t true, you’d hardly believe it,” with its
