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

Film Review: ‘The Hurricane Heist’

Film Review: ‘The Hurricane Heist’
As anyone who’s ever set foot on a film shoot can tell you, it’s a minor miracle that any film actually gets made at all. That great films are occasionally made is a major miracle. But perhaps most miraculous of all is the film that manages to be misguided on every conceivable level, on which any reasonable person would have pulled the plug after reading any random page of the script, that somehow still makes it through the agonies of both development and production into a wide release. Tailor-made to appear on a future installment of “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” “The Hurricane Heist” is a film of that third variety, a perfect storm of deliriously watchable inanity and ineptitude. It may be a strong early candidate for the worst movie of 2018, but don’t let that deter you – bad movies this fun don’t come along every day.

‘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

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

The Disaster Artist inspires our list of the top 5 bad cult movies

The Disaster Artist inspires our list of the top 5 bad cult moviesThe Disaster Artist inspires our list of the top 5 bad cult moviesScott Goodyer11/17/2017 2:30:00 Pm

James Franco's The Disaster Artist is just around the corner. The hilarious comedy is the behind-the-scenes story of the making of the 2003 cult classic movie The Room. Self-funded by the unknown Hollywood wannabe Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed and starred in The Roomit was a major flop but instant cult classic as word of mouth quickly spread on how ridiculously funny this serious drama was.

So what makes The Rooma cult hit? The same elements that elevate other bad movies which suffer from well-intentioned but off-the-mark writing and acting. It's hard to pin down, but we think in this particular case it's Wiseau's oddball personality that makes The Room stand out—and Franco's interpretation of it that makes The Disaster Artist

Newsweek Lets Fly at the Trump Administration With ‘Snakes on a Plane’ Cover

Newsweek Lets Fly at the Trump Administration With ‘Snakes on a Plane’ Cover
The latest issue of Newsweek slams the Donald Trump administration as “the most corrupt in U.S. history” with a bold cover referencing the 2006 Samuel L. Jackson film “Snakes on a Plane.” The cover depicts administration officials straddling a “government air” plane as Trump throws cash in the air. The cover story itself, written by Alexander Nazaryan, highlights the expenses of cabinet members using government planes. The story goes on to highlight how the administration’s behavior runs counter to the “drain the swamp” campaign slogan that drew so much praise prior to the election.

Will Avengers 4 Include A Flashback To The First Avengers Movie?

From the moment Taika Waititi signed on to helm Thor: Ragnarok, the New Zealand filmmaker made a point of taking Marvel’s God of Thunder in a totally new direction.

Gone was the drab storytelling and forgettable human characters, while Thor’s luscious locks also received the chop – courtesy of a very heartfelt cameo by Stan Lee, no less. But we’re now learning that Chris Hemsworth’s Norse god may be sporting his long hair once again by the time Avengers 4 rolls around in 2019.

Filming on the Joe and Anthony Russo blockbuster continues in Atlanta, where the pic is rubbing shoulders with Ant-Man and the Wasp and Sony’s Venom spinoff, and YouTube channel Noticias Geek TV (via Screen Rant) recently snuck a peek of what appears to be a long-haired Thor coming face-to-face with Captain America (or Tony Stark, perhaps?).

X-23 spin-off movie, Venom begins production, Michael Bay’s Dora the Explorer movie and more – Daily News Roundup

X-23 Script In The Works

After a stunning performance in this year’s Logan, James Mangold has revealed that the success of Wonder Woman may have opened the doors for an X-23 movie starring Dafne Keen. “Patty [Jenkins]’s success with that film only solidifies more for studios that there’s less to fear with a female protagonist,” said Mangold in an interview with THR. “The more that keeps getting hit home, that ends up giving me more space turning around and going, ‘Well, here we are with a female protagonist. That’s incredible. And what are we going to do with her?’ And that’s where we are with that [the Laura script] right now, dreaming.” Read more here.

Doctor Who, and the casting of soap stars in the show

Mark Harrison Oct 24, 2017

As Doctor Who series 11 adds a trio of soap opera stars to its cast. And it makes sense...

What do Mandip Gill, Tosin Cole and Bradley Walsh have in common? Other than the fact that they're all joining Jodie Whittaker's Doctor as part of the regular cast of Doctor Who's next series, they've all acted in soap operas. Even 12 years since the show was revived by a former Coronation Street writer, that still makes some fans nervous.

Whatever your thoughts on Corrie, EastEnders and other serial dramas (to give them their proper name – the nickname comes from an outdated observation about soap companies sponsoring many of them), they're the best, most relevant training ground for young actors in British television. It's also more relevant to the experience of working on Doctor Who than you might necessarily expect.

We won't go so far as Doctor Who

‘Snake Outta Compton’: A Massive Mutated Snake Terrorizes a Rising Rap Crew in Insane New Trailer — Watch

‘Snake Outta Compton’: A Massive Mutated Snake Terrorizes a Rising Rap Crew in Insane New Trailer — Watch
You can practically hear the pitch meeting roaring off the screen: “It’s ‘Snakes on a Plane’ meets ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ with a generous dash of ‘Sharknado,’ just for added bite!” Such is the premise and tone of Hank Braxtan’s upcoming “Snake Outta Compton.” From the looks of its first trailer, it appears that that comedy is going to deliver on that promise, no matter if it was a good idea or not.

The film follows a scrappy young rap group on the verge of making it — they’re just days away from signing a major record deal, presumably one that will rocket them into the big time — who unexpectedly run afoul of another Compton resident: a massive mutated snake who will not stop growing after a homespun experiment gone totally awry, and apparently has quite a bad attitude to boot. If you’re going to make a massive mutated snake,
