A gripping thriller set in the labyrinth of Cape Town, South Africa, Momentum follows the fallout after a seemingly meticulously planned heist goes seriously wrong.

Thn interview James Purefoy for ‘Momentum’

James Purefoy interview for Momentum

James Purefoy is a great actor of both stage and screen. He’s best known for his portrayals of Mark Antony in Rome and Joe Carroll in The Following, but has also appeared in the likes of Resident Evil, A Knight’s Tale and Solomon Kane.

This week he stars in new release Momentum. In Momentum he plays Mr. Washington, an enigmatic and intimidating man who is tasked with tracking down Olga Kurylenko‘s thief Alex Farraday. The film is firmly in the action thriller vein, but with the interesting addition of the action hero actually being an action heroine, an element that caught James’ eye.

We sat down with James to discuss the project, his desire for equality within the film industry, and the unnerving parallels between recent events and plot strands in The Following.

Ash vs Evil Dead, Ep 1.02, “Bait”

Ash vs Evil Dead, Season 1, Episode 2, “Bait”

Written by Dominic Dierkes

Directed by Michael J. Bassett

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on Starz

The premiere of Ash vs Evil Dead left this reviewer a little cold. The tone of the episode felt too wonky, the prospect of sustaining the introduced story over a series of half-hour episodes seemed dubious, and the general creepy but humorous charm of the first two Evil Dead films had given way to the full-blown Three Stooges-esque mayhem of Army of Darkness. So the second episode, “Bait”, being is a vast improvement in every conceivable way is a great surprise and relief . What makes this all the more unexpected is that this is the first episode without Evil Dead mastermind Sam Raimi directing or writing. Has Raimi been out of the Evil Dead game for so long that he just didn’t quite know how

Wronged Women Make Things Right in Momentum and Julia

There really aren’t enough female-headlined action films, so when one comes along it’s almost worth a look on its existence alone. Ideally it will lean more Haywire than Mercenaries quality-wise, but the paucity of options means we’ll take what we can get at this point. Happily, the newest lady-led action picture, Momentum, is an entertaining and frequently thrilling ride that very nearly lives up to its title. A high-tech team of slick-looking bank robbers are midway through their heist when mistakes and bad attitudes get the better of them. One of their number is killed, and another is unmasked in front of the hostages. With her face all over the news, Alex (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace) is forced to lay low and wait for the deal with those who hired her team to wrap up, but a double cross leaves her on the run and low on options.

Review: Bruce Campbell is groovy again in his best role in 'Ash vs. Evil Dead'

  • Hitfix
Review: Bruce Campbell is groovy again in his best role in 'Ash vs. Evil Dead'
In the opening moments of Starz's "Ash vs. Evil Dead," director Sam Raimi presents the kind of rapidly-edited montages that became a signature part of the "Evil Dead" films, as demon-fighting hero Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) straps some kind of complicated device to his body. Is it another chainsaw to fit over the hand he chopped off in 1987's "Evil Dead II"? The mechanical metal hand he had forged in 1993's "Army of Darkness"? Nope. It's a corset, there to help Ash maintain the illusion that he's still as sleek as he was back in his glory days of battling the Deadites. It's the kind of self-deprecating joke that's defined Bruce Campbell's career — a career where, even when he's not playing Ash, the audience often winds up filtering the role he's playing through an Ash-colored prism — but also a smart move by the creative team (the first episode was written by Ivan Raimi,

The Legend of Conan could launch Robert E. Howard cinematic universe

Marvel is doing it, DC is doing it, Transformers is doing it, Ghostbusters is doing it, so why not Conan the Barbarian and the various characters created by Robert E. Howard?

According to Deadline (via Comic Book), Fredrick Malmberg has aquired the rights to Howard’s various creations, including Conan, Kull the Conqueror and Solomon Kane, and is looking to launch a shared cinematic universe, which will presumably start with the upcoming The Legend of Conan.

“These days, it comes down to brands and characters and we are looking at long-term possibilities,” states Malmberg. “We look at how Marvel played out with its rich based of characters, and this too is a universe that lends itself to exploitation in TV and film. There aren’t many libraries like this.”

Malmberg also went on to touch upon The Legend of Conan,

The Following season 3 episode 7 review: The Hunt

If we wanted a sensible police drama, we wouldn't be watching The Following. Where has all the craziness gone, asks Ron?

This review contains spoilers.

1.7 The Hunt

One of the best things about The Following is that it is set in a world with an infinite supply of serial killers. That's also one of the worst things about The Following, as it lends itself to laziness. Whenever one of the killers we know is in trouble, well, we just have that person turn to someone in his network of murderer pals to help him solve his problem. When it's someone like Arthur Strauss reaching out to one of his many students, it makes sense. We've seen Strauss at work training other killers, we know he's got hundreds of students committing thousands of murders, and it makes sense that they'd be willing to stick their neck out to help the man

[Comic Execution] 3/21 – ‘Ghosted’, ‘Undertow’, ‘The Witcher’

Just gonna air a gripe here in the column for visibility’s sake: Dark Horse Comic’s app, for reading their comics digitally? It sucks. And I’m angry about it, but not just because it sucks. No, I’m angry because Comixology, which works wonderfully, is clearly the template for Dark Horse’s app. Dark Horse Comics apparently doesn’t care about convenience or, you know, being reasonable. They’d prefer to have their own app, one that sucks frankly, than participate in the Comixology ecosystem. It’s like… let’s say you’re a video game company and you’ve got some really great games, right? And there’s this huge, incredibly efficient, perfectly-organized distribution platform that would be perfect for your games and would put them right in the hands of gamers who desperately want to play them. But instead of actually using that delivery system, you Make Your Own.

‘I, Frankenstein’ Fails to Find its Lightning Bolt and Remains Dead on the Table

I, Frankenstein

Directed by Stuart Beattie

Written by Kevin Grevioux and Stuart Beattie

USA, 2013

Despite having his origins in classic literature, Frankenstein’s monster has become a truly cinematic beast, having shown up in countless screen iterations since first being brought to life by Boris Karloff in 1931. No surprise, then, that I, Frankenstein, originally a comic series by Underworld scribe Kevin Grevioux would get the big-screen treatment, and even less of a surprise to results aren’t particularly pretty.

Aaron Eckhart stars as the creature, this time named Adam, who becomes embroiled in a centuries-old war between demons and gargoyles, who are both God’s warriors on Earth and far less interesting than any early-90s Disney Channel cartoons would have you believe. Though he initially wants no part of the war, having no love for humanity, Adam is forced into the conflict when the demons begin pursuing him, hell-bent
