MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Spy’ Will Covertly Send You Into Uncontrollable Laughing Fits

Film: Spy Directed by: Paul Feig Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne Director Paul Feig has been sneaking his way through genres with mixed results.

I hate to be the guy who says if you’ve seen one Melissa McCarthy film you have more or less seen them all, but Spy […]

Sylvester Stallone stumbled onto a box office goldmine when he decided to recruit the best actors from the action genre of the last three decades and put them together in a film called The Expendables. The sequel, Expendables 2, boasted an even bigger cast with more well-known names (and explosions). 2014 will see the arrival […]

Catching Fire Still

‘Catching Fire’ Survives Against Box Office Newcomers

Catching Fire‘s ongoing box office success has not yet ceased since the sequel’s debut last weekend. There were a few different top ten newcomers this thanksgiving weekend, but none came as close to matching Catching Fire‘s $74.5 million dollar gross as much as Disney’s latest animated film, Frozen, which is currently estimated to earn about […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Homefront’

Film: Homefront Director: Gary Fleder Writers: Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Logan Starring: Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder Action stars cannot be action stars forever. I love my grandparents but the thought of them saving the world from evil is laughable. On a good day they manage to take down a list of chores, not a drug […]

HOLY SH!T: Jason Statham Vs. James Franco In First ‘Homefront’ Trailer

Chev Chelios is about to battle Saul Silver. Is this real life? Few names are as synonymous with the modern action film as Jason Statham. He’s starred almost entirely in genre features for the last decade, likely taking on more leading roles than any other action star (except maybe The Rock), but none of those […]

EDITORIAL: “The Expendables 2: Why Stallone’s Ragtag Crew of Action Heroes Didn’t Deliver the Box Office Goods in Their Second Outing”

For an action movie with 11 genre heavyweights, The Expendables 2 really didn’t do that much damage at the box office this weekend. The testosterone-soaked sequel, delivered a mere two years after the original, took in a mediocre $28.75 million, an opening gross 17% lower than that of the original. Factor in the higher budget […]
