Despite the outcry of fans, pleading with the powers-that-be to bury this remake into the depths of Hades, Point Break is still being made. There's been further casting going on with the picture, and the person that they wrangled in to play Johnny Utah, formerly  played by Keanu Reeves, isn't a name many movie-goers would recognize.

47 Ronin: Movie Review

Published by

r1
Hollywood can't help but re-write beloved myths and lore in ways that just rip away their greatness. 47 Ronin falls short of the history of the 47 lordless Samurai who exact revenge to honor their leader and land. This adaptation relies on stunning visual effects and stylized action sequences to compensate for its lack of story.

This week brings Fast and Furious 6 to home video, a release that only reminds of the recent loss of Paul Walker. It also brings Despicable Me 2, the second biggest film of the summer (and the year to date, it should get passed by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire). That and some Disney classics make for a good week of home video.

As a production, the Keanu Reeves vehicle 47 Ronin film was besieged with problems, delayed for over a year and  had a massive amount of reshoots. As a trailer, 47 Ronin looks kind of cool. And though it's easy to think about the film's troubled history, this new trailer gives the film a scale and scope that could turn it into the sleeper...

Pre-release buzz is what it is. For every film that is supposedly doomed by it (like The Lone Ranger) there's another that proves pre-release noise is just that (World War Z). So what's going to happen with the long-delayed 47 Ronin? Who's to say, but we bet it does substantially better internationally, and now...

47 Ronin
47 Ronin was originally scheduled for release in November of 2012. Then it got bumped to February, 2013, and now it's scheduled for December 25, 2013. But the good news for this troubled production (much like with World War Z), is that it never made public its intent to come out. Theaters weren't covered in posters, there weren't trailers...

'Man of Tai Chi' Trailer: Keanu Reeves Makes a Bloodsport

Man of Tai Chi
Keanu Reeves never went crazy with power after The Matrix. He's mostly done a movie every once in a while, and a number of those have been indie films. It seems he's become more interested in getting behind the camera. Recently he was involved in a documentary, and now we have a trailer for his directing debut Man of Tai Chi. In it he knows...

In Point Break With Keanu Reeves
Point Break—quite simply it is one of the best and most entertaining movies of 1990s.  Why?  Because, despite being almost  terminally stupid, the film soars due to its casting: by starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, two actors who seemed to have no idea how ridiculous the film is and thus who commit themselves totally to it, the film...

There have already been reports that the movie 47 Ronin is in trouble, and now things only seem to be getting worse. A lot worse.

For nearly a hundred years, the technology of filmmaking didn't change.
