Netflix's Arcane Review 'Damn PERFECT'

Snake Eyes Film Has Found It's Director

THR is reporting Robert Schwentke , who directed two installments of the Divergent sci-fi action movie series, has been tapped to helm Paramount’s G.I. Joe spinoff pic centering on the popular character Snake Eyes . Evan Spiliotopoulos, the writer of 2017's Beauty and the Beast and 2016's The Huntsman: Winter’s War , penned the script, and Brian Goldner is among those producing the feature based on the Hasbro toy line. Snake Eyes is the silent ninja commando that first appeared in the 1980s as part of Hasbro and Marvel Comics’ relaunch of the toy line, dubbed G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. The character, who dresses in all black, never reveals his face and never speaks, stood out among the military anti-terrorist group and quickly established himself as the most popular. He had a special relationship with Scarlett, for a while the team’s only female member, and sometimes carried out solo missions with his pet wolf, Timber. His sworn enemy is Storm Shadow, a ninja who

Divergent Review: Blase YA Distopia

Divergent Review By: Matt Cummings The terribly flatlined  Divergent offers nothing new and plenty to dislike.  In an industry dying to find the next big thing, Hollywood has understandably latched on to YA: read by entire demographics who heretofore claimed romantic comedies as their their own, Hollywood correctly recognized its potential. However, its ability to reel those fishes in has been rocky to say the least: for every Hunger Games , there's Mortal Instruments , Beautiful Creatures , and Vampire Academy . With such a track record, it's clear that moviegoers haven't embraced the genre the way it's worshiped super hero films as of late. Hoping to reverse that trend is the blase and imitative distopia of Divergent , a film that will make a lot of money only because of its rabid fan base and certainly not because of its pedigree. After a conflict ends the United States 100 years before, the city of Chicago has endured by erecting a giant electric fe

6 (or 7) Movies On Our Radar - March 2014

By: Matt Cummings These are the March films which should get you to the theaters. After a surprisingly strong Winter movie season, March arrives with an intriguing lineup that feels more like something we'd see in Summer. Over the past few years, March has been interesting in that it seems more like a roll-out month than a leech, ready to usher in a strong April that ultimately leads us to Summer. That's good or bad depending on how you look at it, but one thing is for sure: there are a surprising amount of high profile releases that could either become impressive money-makers or duds that will quickly find their way to the Blu-ray bargain bin. For a schedule that includes a second Bible epic, a comic book adaptation, and a Muppet movie, March certainly arrives with six (or seven) movies that have peaked our interest. 300: Rise of an Empire (March 7th)   The original 300 was a masterpiece of cinema: beautifully violent, it ushered in a new way of film-making

Terminator: Genesis: Jai Courtney To Play Kyle Reese

Jai Courtney has emerged as the one of the saviors of the world. I am not sure I really like this choice. Courtney has nabbed the role of Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genesis , the reboot being made by Paramount and Skydance, according to several sources. Paramount had no comment. Emilia Clarke and Jason Clarke are portraying Sarah Connor and John Connor in the movie, which will be directed by Alan Taylor . The movie has been rigorously testing actors for all parts including that of Reese, the hero who in the original travels to the present to save Sarah Connor and ends up fathering future human resistance hero John Connor. The role came down to Courtney and Boyd Holbrook, with Holbrook even testing twice. Courtney played a key role in TV’s Spartacus and played Bruce Willis’ son in A Good Day to Die Hard. He’ll next be seen in YA adaptation Divergent. Please Leave A Comment- Source- THR

The Final Word: Top Domestic Movies of 2013

The Final Word: Top Domestic Movies of 2013 By: MattInRC It's time to ruminate on the year that was, and seek some insight from the Movie Gods about 2014.
