Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

Strike Back: Origins Available Now On Digital HD

Before Stonebridge & Scott, there were Porter & Collinson.

The hit Cinemax series Strike Back recently ended its four season run. Now it’s time to see how it all started as Strike Back: Origins arrives now on Digital HD today. In this six-part series that inspired the hit Cinemax series Strike Back, former British Special Forces soldier John Porter (Richard Armitage) joins Section 20, a top-secret British-government agency run by Hugh Collinson (Andrew Lincoln), who was part of a 2003 Iraq rescue mission marred by soldier fatalities – staining Porter’s military career and sending him into seclusion for seven bitter years.

Now, a familiar face from that mission has resurfaced in a recent international crisis, one involving (among other elements) a missile-encryption plot involving renegade agents and a group of ruthless terrorists. After persuading Collinson to add him to the Section 20 team, Porter travels from Basra to Zimbabwe to Afghanistan to track down the terrorists. In the process, Porter discovers some new evidence that could restore his Special Forces reputation. Porter makes an appearance in the first season of Cinemax’s “Strike Back,” during which he is captured on a mission and Section 20 head Col. Eleanor Grant (Amanda Mealing) brings in U.S. Special Forces soldier Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) to work with Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and the team. Scott previously ran a mission with Porter in Iraq and had knowledge of their target, terrorist Latif.

Strike Back: Origins, hailed as “another win for fans of action drama” (NY Daily News), is now available via digital retailers for the SRP of $7.79 (SD), $10.49 (HD).

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
