Movie Review: #JackReacherNeverGoBack

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is middle of the road action blah.
Review by Matt Cummings
It's impressive when you consider the effect which Actor Tom Cruise has had on the Jack Reacher series. His decision to portray the former military man-turned wandering badass gave Cruise a grounded hero that resulted in one of our favorite movies of 2012. Regardless if the diehard Reacher fans liked the smallish Cruise for the 6'5" role (are there diehard Reacher fans out there?), it garnered a second film after the original took off in the home market. Sadly, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is a step backward: it's a predictable, paint-by-the-numbers experience that's strangely still very watchable.

When his Military Police replacement Major Turner (Cobie Smulders) is arrested for treason, Reacher (Cruise) busts her out and goes on a quest to prove her innocence. But his greatest struggles won't be against Turner's would-be assassin (Patrick Heusinger), but with the 1…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See HACKSAW RIDGE In SAN ANTONIO

Enter for a chance to see HACKSAW RIDGE on Tuesday, November 1 at 7:00 PM in SAN ANTONIO.


HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. The film also stars Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, and Vince Vaughn.

Donald Glover Cast As Lando Calrissian In The Han Solo Stand-Alone Film

Lucasfilm announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich -- previously cast as Han Solo -- in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored. This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy's underworld -- years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.


“We're so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us,” said Lord and Miller. “These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we'd like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con fo…

International Trailer For #LOGAN

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has survived through the full X-Men movie series and now, after 16 years, he’s whipping out his claws one last time for Logan. And in the third and final Wolverine movie, he’s losing his self-healing powers—but he’s found his successor.



Set in 2024, Logan brings Wolverine back as a lone survivor in a time when mutants are all gone or in hiding, hunted by government assassins. Set to Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails (director James Mangold is also behind the Cash biopic Walk the Line), the first trailer for the movie shows a scarred Logan living in a wasteland, isolated from the rest of the world.

But in such a dire time, there’s still hope: Wolverine and a very sickly Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) must come together to protect Laura (Sienna Novikov), a young girl with powers very similar to Logan’s, from the cyborg Reavers. Audiences will find out whether Laura is indeed X-23—a clone of Wolverine—on March 3, 2017.

“All of us in Friends of Type have been Oasis fans for years. For this poster, the lettering is inspired partly by '60s psychedelic posters and the doodles we’d make of our favorite bands when we were in high school. We wanted it to feel like an imaginary gig (or circus) with all the information being taken from different events, coming together for this ‘One Night Only’ gig.” —Friends of Type
