This week offers one of last year’s best movies that was sadly ignored by the academy and never got a particularly wide release. Also a film that shockingly got an Oscar nomination, a an arthouse flop, and some great catalog titles.

Homefront: Movie Review

Published by

The combination of Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Kate Bosworth and a script from Sylvester Stallone sounds like a recipe for something interesting, if not either brilliant or terrible. Alas, the end result -- the movie Homefront --  is surprisingly not good-bad or bad-bad, but boring.

'Homefront' Trailer: Jason Statham Fights James Franco (Really)

Published by

Homefront
Regardless if the movie is good or not, Homefront is a fascinating combination of things. You wouldn't normally expect Jason Statham to be squaring up against James Franco, nor would you expect that film to be written by but not featuring in any way Sylvester Stallone. Is that enough to bring in audiences? Who's to say, but the film definitely has our attention with...

DVD and Blu-ray Picks for May 21 - 27

the last stand 6
This week offers a number of this year’s earlier films, most of which failed to make much of an impression at the box office. This was sad for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and for Warner Brothers, who thought they might have the next Twilight/Harry Potter on their hands. There’s also a ton of cool older titles hitting DVD and Blu-ray this week....

When rumors of an Escape from New York reboot began a few years ago, Gerard Butler was the actor being considered to star as Snake Plissken, the dark anti-hero originally and indelibly portrayed by Kurt Russell.  At the time, Russell stated the casting wouldn’t work as Snake, a quintessentially American character, needed an American actor.  Fast forward to this...

When it comes to playing both sides of the law, Michael Chiklis has plenty of experience. The actor's made a career of portraying lawmen or criminals in film and television. So when he signed on as the villain opposite Jason Statham in Parker, it just made sense. The laid back, experienced Chiklis chatted with ScreenCrave about the movie and his upcoming...

It's tricky to make your way into the film industry, but once you do it can be a rewarding experience. Actor Micah Hauptman is one of those lucky fellows who, after years of hard work, landed his first large supporting role in the upcoming Jason Statham action film Parker. It's not everyday that somebody lucks out and manages to act alongside one of...

Interview: Jason Statham On 'Parker'

Published by

Parker-image-Jason-Statham
Jason Statham is arguably one of the best action stars of our generation. He's the modern day equivalent of Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger or Jean-Claude Van Damme. After dominating the action scene for years, the seasoned actor wanders into familiar territory with Parker. There have been many adaptations of Donald...

Seeing as how Jason Statham is contractually obligated to churn out exactly 2.5 action films per year, it’s time for the trailer for Parker, his newest action flick in which he portrays—get this, you guys!—a gruff, grizzled and brooding anti-hero who straddles both sides of the law while ultimately fighting for good and winning the heart of a lovely lady, all...

While summer 2012 is finally beginning to wind down, there’s certainly been no shortage of interesting news bits: from Kristen Stewart’s possible return in Snow White and the Huntsman 2 (it was reported earlier this week that she’d been canned) to the return of Indiana Jones (but in IMAX form!) to a sneak peek at scene from Paranormal Activity 4 (hint: the...

The Expendables 2: Movie Review

The Expendables 2
The roster of talent involved with the Expendables movies means that - even if the first picture was pretty terrible - there's a thrill that comes with the sequel. And it seems like The Expendables 2 knows the problems the first film had and decided that the best way to deliver a sequel is just make it a greatest hits of action icons doing...

'The Transporter' TV Series Trailer: How To Make Bad Films Into A Bad TV...

Published by

The Transporter films—while not exactly action cinema’s finest moments, the sub-par action snoozers did have at least two things going for them: Jason Statham’s charm, and a series of uncut and fairly realistic fight scenes.  Again, not exactly high art (or even the kind of action flick Liam Neeson does now when he’s slumming), but hey, Statham’s gotta eat...

How do you screw up the excitement for the cheesy goodness that is The Expendables 2?  I mean, you’ve got an action film starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, and Jason Statham—it’s going to be big, stupid fun, right?  So how do you knock the goodwill for the film down a peg?  You release a...

Looking as if Sylvester Stallone took one look at the horrible theatrical poster for The Dark Knight Rises and said, “hey could we do that, but even crappier?,” the final theatrical poster for The Expendables 2 is a sight to behold.  Featuring cartoonish flames, photoshopped heads floating on top of bodies, and actors with about 25 years sandblasted off of their faces,...

Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger announcing “I’m back!,” Jason Statham stabbing a groom at a wedding and declaring “I now pronounce you man and knife,” and Sylvester Stallone crashing an airplane into a train tunnel in the side of a mountain, the trailer for The Expendables 2 features some of the most ludicrous action clichés committed to celluloid since...

Yesterday, we reported that Hasbro and Michael Bay were gunning for a fourth Transformers film.  And if that wasn’t enough bad news for one week, month, year, or decade, try this on for size: it looks like the fourth and fifth (sweet, sweet Jesus protect us) Transformers films are going to be made simultaneously.  And since...

Killer Elite: Movie Review

Jason Statham and Robert De Niro in Killer Elite
What do you need to really know about Killer Elite before you see it? It has the words “Killer” and “Elite” in the title, the trailers have a ton of action, Jason Statham stars, and Robert De Niro and Clive Owen are in it. It’s only missing ninjas. Or is it?? Wait, it is, but it does have a lot of other things to look forward to...

Jason Statham and Robert De Niro in Killer Elite
Even tied to a chair, Jason Statham is a formidable foe - at least int he new trailer for Killer Elite. No, it's not a remake of the old (and not particularly good) Sam Peckinpah film, and yes that's Statham going toe to toe with Clive Owen. And, yes, that's Robert De Niro brawling like a man half his age (or with good stuntpeople).  Check it out...

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night, covered in cold sweat and shrieking, as the realization that it’s been as least three months since you’ve seen Jason Statham glower his way through a 90-minute mishmash of quickly-edited fight scenes, car chases, and bad-ass baldness explodes inside your brain? No? Well, never mind then. Um, me either. But, you know, just in case,...
