Review: 'The Equalizer' A Fluffy Film That's Forgettable

Review: 'The Equalizer' A Fluffy Film That's Forgettable
For the sake of this review, I’m going to put aside my strong sentimental feelings for the highly underrated TV series upon which this movie is loosely based. And I’ll forget that it was a hard man in an unusual shell by the name of Edward Woodward that singlehandedly took a simple and somewhat familiar premise and elevated it to deep dark heights that lingered. But sadly even in the absence of such unforgettable beginnings, the new movie version of "The Equalizer" still manages to come out being just…okay. The cookie cutter mix of music video action sequences, clichéd bad guys and Denze...

Steven Soderberg Turns 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark' Into A Black-And-White Silent Movie -- And It's Awesome

September 24th, 2014 3:33pm EDT
Raiders of the Lost Ark blackand white
Semi-retired director Steven Soderbergh has conducted an experiment "for educational purposes only" by altering Steven Spielberg's classic 1981 film "Raiders of the Lost Ark."

Soderbergh posted his version of the film and his explanation for changing it on his blog, Extension 765, on Monday revealing that he took the entire movie and converted it to black-and-white while removing all of the film's music and dialog and replacing it with new ambient music (comprising mostly of the scores from David Fincher's films "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Social Network").

Interview: 'Run Like Hell' Actor Canyon Prince Talks Tough Guy

September 24th, 2014 1:30pm EDT
Run Like Hell
Most great genre films have an element of surprise. Be it a clever twist, witty dialogue or a character that captivates, a strong story device out of left field can certainly raise stakes. Such is the case in the new horror movie “Run Like Hell” (now available on VOD from Gravitas Ventures), an old school homage that mixes “The Devil’s Rejects” with “The Hills Have Eyes” all with a John Carpenter-esk vibe. The film follows a group of two couples stranded in a small town where nothing is as it seems. But the interesting thing is one of the four folks Luke is a red herring of sorts - a mi...

New 'True Detective' Star Vince Vaughn's Dramatic Resume

New 'True Detective' Star Vince Vaughn's Dramatic Resume
Many people were surprised and confused by HBO's announcement that Vince Vaughn would join Colin Farrell as the co-lead in the next season of True Detective, and we can't blame them - in recent years, Vaughn has been known for almost nothing but comedies, including Wedding Crashers, The Internship, The Watch, and his awesome cameos in the Anchorman films as Ron Burgundy's rival Wes Mantooth.

However, we'd argue that casting Vaughn in the role of Frank Semyon, "career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business part...

Fans of the "Fast & Furious" film franchise can say a big 'thank you' to star Vin Diesel today, as he posted intimate photos from the set on his Facebook page yesterday from the film's 7th installment.

There is no word yet on how they will address Walker's character, Brian O'Conner, in the film.

Diesel returns to the film, alongside Michelle Rodriguez, ...

Ducks fly together!

We might be celebrating the 20th premiere anniversary of “Friends,” but there’s also a special film that needs our attention: “D2: The Mighty Ducks.”

'The Maze Runner' Takes Top Spot At Weekend Box Office While Liam Neeson's 'A Walk Among The Tombstones' Bombs

September 22nd, 2014 11:15am EDT
The Maze Runner
Dystopian teen action/drama The Maze Runner has topped the weekend box office, pulling in $32.5 million in its debut.

The film, adapted from author James Dashner's young adult series, prompted 20th Century Fox to fast-track a sequel following its weekend success. "The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials" is set for a fall 2015 release.

Liam Neeson's latest, "A Walk Among the Tombstones" debuted at number two, with a very weak $13.1 million haul; while Jason Bateman & Tina Fey's dramedy "This Is Where I Leave You" also disappointed, with $11.9 million.

Last week's number-one and number-two films, ...
