If you like fast cars, action and intrigue, then of course you’re going to love any news about the upcoming ‘Fast and Furious 8‘. We teased you a few months ago about who the villain could be, you can read that story here .

If you had to pick a leading female actor to play the villain in what’s largely been a male dominated franchise, like for the eighth installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, who would it be? If it were me, I might look at the star of  ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘, Charlize Theron. She was a welcome addition to the George Miller film which has gained multiple Oscar nominees.

The Old Guard – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 14th, 2020

“The Old Guard is a blast.”

This is a perfect Netflix movie and why I hope the streaming giant continues to spend millions on original content every year. An R-rated, high concept, sci-fi, action team origin story starring Charlize Theron that travels all around the globe? Sign me up every time. You may be saying to yourself, “But Dan, Six Underground and Extraction both came out on Netflix this year too.” Well, let me tell you why this movie is vastly superior to those two… two words… Charlize Theron. Don’t get me wrong I love Ryan Reynolds and Chris Hemsworth and their Netflix movies were entertaining but The Old Guard is elevated because Charlize is so overqualified for this role and the director focused on the characters first, action second.

The Fast Saga Trailer Breakdown and Reaction!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 6th, 2020

 

The Fast & Furious movies, or as the studio now wants us to call it: The Fast Saga, has been a rocket ship to the moon of ridiculous for the past decade. Every sequel gets bigger and crazier. We’ve had skyscraper jumping, parachute cars, using a car as a murder weapon, pushing a torpedo on ice with your hand while fighting a submarine, the list goes on forever. Well, what a glorious day it was for me this weekend when a new almost four-minute trailer for the latest Fast Saga Film F9 made its way into these eyeballs. This trailer is more absurd, fun and insane than almost any of the other movies. This crew started stealing blu ray players from trucks and is now “Tarzan-Swinging” a car over a cliff… I can’t get enough of how wild this trailer is. So watch the trailer then check out my scientific breakdown with time stamps.

Bombshell – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 20th, 2019

“I appreciate the message it sends of kickass women who continue to stick it to the man, but the film falls flat when it neglects to accent just how devastating a true bombshell moment can be. “

Just as the explosive revelation that the men at Fox News were creeping on the women there made a few waves and then fell flat, so does Bombshell, a movie based on harassment at America’s premiere conservative network. This is a star-studded cast and I was really hoping for a blockbuster film, but it just didn’t hold up as one of the year’s better films.

Long Shot – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on May 2nd, 2019

 

“Long Shot is fun to suspend disbelief for the sake of a romantic comedy.”

In reality, it’s a long shot that Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen end up together, but in Long Shot, it’s fun to suspend disbelief for the sake of a romantic comedy. This is Hitch meets Notting Hill and honestly, it was one of the better rom-coms I have seen lately. It’s got just enough star power, with smaller but shiny supporting roles, that it doesn’t overwhelm like the films that throw in every star they can (New Years Eve or He’s Just Not That Into You).  The plot is a bit farfetched, but it’s a Hollywood love story so just go with it.

This year I saw 102 new movies in 2018. That number is actual movies released in 2018. I count Netflix and streaming movies released this year because that is where we are heading but the majority of the 102 was in movie theaters. I decided not to rank my top movies this year because at the end of the day the difference between #10 thru #3 is usually based on my mood when I write the list. So I just put my top movies in ABC order.

Film Review: ‘Sicario 2: Day of Soldado’!!

by Janet White on Jul 1st, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Three years ago, Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) and Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) were introduced as FBI agents fighting the war on drugs in Sicario. The duo returns in Sicario 2: Day of the Soldado and the age-old strategy of pitting one enemy against another is re-imagined. Why fight all of the cartels one at a time when you could incite them to fight each other? Enter the daughter of a cartel king and a bad little girl, Isabel Reyes (Isabela Moner). This girl will wow you.

Beka’s Film Review: ‘Gringo’!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 8th, 2018

Gringo is a really fun film that wasn’t on my radar until I saw Joel Edgerton on a late night show and I’m so glad I did. Fresh off Red Sparrow, I saw him on Colbert and discovered he is hotter than you imagine, because he is Australian and also he has this other film, Gringo, which p.s., his brother Nash Edgerton directed. The cast is brimming with stars that are A listers and people that shine despite their lack of name recognition. Edgerton plays corporate dick, Richard Rusk, who is sleeping with everyone and has a general disregard for everything unless it benefits him. Charlize Theron plays Elaine Markinson, a rough woman “working” her way to the top who knows how to get what she wants. The standout however is David Oyelowo, who plays Harold Soyinka, a middle-management nobody whose life is crumbling at the hands of the two players above.

Film Review: ‘Gringo’!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 8th, 2018

Gringo‘ follows a straight-laced business man named Harold (David Oyelowo) who works for a medical marijuana company run by Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron), who are planning a secret merger they don’t want Harold to discover. In order for the merger to go through, they must clean up the books at their Mexican facility which has been selling a “weed pill” to a cartel leader to help the company financially. At home, Harold’s wife (Thandie Newton) is cheating on him, further pushing Harold to the edge. For some reason, Amanda Seyfried shows up as the girlfriend of some guitar store employee sent to Mexico so steal some drugs from the same facility Harold is there to see. Eventually Harold ends up stuck in Mexico through a series of kidnappings and ploys, forcing Richard to ask his brother (a former mercenary), played by Sharlto Copley, to rescue Harold from Mexico.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’!

by Bryan Kluger on Nov 9th, 2017

THE FILM


This film portion is written by Dan Moran.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

4K UHD Review: Wonder Woman!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Warner Bros./DC Comics Cinematic Universe has been trying to get off its feet for a while now with no success, besides some decent box office money. However, most people would tell you that the new DC Comics‘ films are just not up to par with their rivals over at Marvel for many reasons. These people would be right. Perhaps one of the best moments of Batman v Superman was in fact Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. It was just a shame she only had a few minutes of screen time in that film. The rest was mostly trash. Luckily, Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to finally make a Wonder Woman movie, which is the first superhero film to feature a female superhero as its main protagonist, as well with a female director with Patty Jenkins. The result is satisfying, making Wonder Woman a damn good film with a few flaws.

Blu-ray Review: The Fate of the Furious!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

We’re eight movies into this franchise, which would have you assume that these films would have lost steam, been remade, or have a completely new cast. That’s not the case at all with ‘Fate of the Furious‘ or the 8th installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, because there are no signs of this franchise slowing down, being remade, or losing any of its fun cast.

Fast & Furious: Civil War

(Feel free so scroll to the bottom if you’re here to talk Jason Statham.)

After the death of Paul Walker and the 7th film there has been lots of speculation as to where the Fast & Furious franchise would go and the 8th movie definitively answers that question: Anywhere it damn well pleases. By the end of The Fate of the Furious, the loudest, most insane, and dumbest (in a good way) entry in the series, the stage is set for 100 more of these films and I’d sign up for 99 of them. While many franchises are working as hard as they can to justify spinoffs and team up films, the Fast & Furious put itself in a position to justify a number of spinoffs. As a film universe goes, Fast & Furious is behind only Marvel.

I saw The Fast and The Furious when I was 14 or 15. As someone who grew up watching Point Break on VHS and other 80s/90s action movies it was right in my wheel house. I have never been a car guy but I still remember that summer talking with my friends about Honda Civics, Nos, and spoilers that we’d all be getting when we turned 16. The first movie is a step by step remake of Point Break, right down to letting the “bad guy” go at the end with “I owe you a 10 second car” instead of “Vaya Con Dios.” It stared two relatively unknowns in Paul Walker and Vin Diesel who will never be confused with Daniel Day Lewis but were born to play these parts. Ultimately was a fun summer popcorn movie that no one thought they’d hear from again, let alone turn into an almost 4 billion dollar franchise.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

It’s a damn shame that every action movie can’t be as good as ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘. So many action films will try, but will ultimately fail for a variety of reasons. Pure action filmmaking and movies just don’t get better than this movie. ‘Fury Road‘ is a troubled story to say the least. Original creator George Miller who made the original three ‘Mad Max‘ films had the idea for this fourth installment back in 1998. That’s 17-years ago. This project wasn’t necessarily put on a hold shelf, but a few things had happened to delay the film from being made. From 9-11 to foreign policy, to Mel Gibson’s infamous arrest, there were a variety of things that prevented this movie from seeing the light of day.

Film Review: ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’!!

by Janet White on Apr 23rd, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Huntsman

 

Let’s say just say it…Snow White and the Huntsman was not well done.The Huntsman: Winter’s War is the hot and cold shell that envelops its predecessor.  It’s not perfect, but is action enjoyment coupled with corny sporadic humor.  Not to mention, Chris Hemsworth finally got his balls back.  I can tell you that.  Snow White and the Huntsman emasculated the action-packed hunk of man that is Hemsworth.  Though some believe that this story should not have been told, but I enjoyed the unveiling of the back-backstory.  The film could have been structured to be less predictable but sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy a film for your base needs: adrenaline, fear, and desire.
