Hold on tight; Joe Gazzam is set to write the Cliffhanger reboot

It's been five years since we last heard the threats of a reboot of CLIFFHANGER , but now the folks at Studio Canal and FAST & FURIOUS producer Neal Moritz are set to move forward with the project. The original, now over 20 years old, starred Sylvester Stallone as a traumatized mountain climber who is forced by thieves to help recover three briefcases carrying $100 million...

Renny Harlin in talks to direct Skiptrace starring Jackie Chan

The '90s wouldn’t have been the same without Renny Harlin ; the director brought us such greats as DIE HARD 2 , CLIFFHANGER , and THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT . He also brought us one of the biggest box office flops of all time with CUTTHROAST ISLAND and this year's LEGEND OF HERCULES ; swings and roundabouts I suppose. He is now in talks to direct SKIPTRACE , an action...

Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Carrie-Anne Moss!

This is Movie Jail, a unique maximum security prison that houses some of the worst writers, directors, actors and producers from Hollywood and beyond. Their crimes? The offenses vary from convict to convict but most of these inmates have contributed negatively to the film world to some capacity and his or her misdeeds have covered a long enough period of time that the authorities had...

Review: The Legend of Hercules

PLOT: Mythical Greek half-god Hercules is sent into exile by his stepfather, sold into slavery, becomes a Gladiator, and builds an army in order to take his rightful kingdom. REVIEW: Model-turned-actor Kellan Lutz seems like a very nice guy in the real world, so I'll try to take it easy on him. As an actor, he makes a great model. (I've never seen him model but I can only...

Top 10 Movies Based On Greco-Roman Mythology

The first of two movies featuring Hercules open in 2014 with the first one starring Kellan Lutz opening today. Renny Harlin's film looks to be squarely in the cheesy category with an abundance of green screen effects and middle of the road actors. In the history of movies there have been numerous movies based on or inspired by Greek and Roman myths, some good and a lot bad. Here are the top...

Cool Videos: See if you can name which flicks the top 100 action movie one-liners come from

After enjoying a hearty meal and copious amounts of alcohol last night, I found myself watching one of my favorite Christmas movies: THE LONG KISS GOODNIGHT. In between the Renny Harlin action setpieces, I found myself quoting the numerous brilliant Shane Black one-liners in the film. I began to think about how we don't get very many good action one-liners these days and lo and...

Kellan Lutz has the strength of a God in the second trailer for The Legend of Hercules

There's a saying that if you "don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all" but what am I supposed to do with this trailer for THE LEGEND OF HERCULES? The second trailer displays a 300 type style sandals epic except the CGI is terribly noticeable and not stylized. My other issue is that every opportunity that Hercules ( Kellan Lutz ) has to speak he doesn't....

Full trailer for Renny Harlin's Hercules: The Legend Begins comes smashing in

A few days ago we got our first peek at director Renny Harlin 's take on the sword-and-sandal genre, HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS and now we have a full trailer to contend with. Starring Kellan Lutz as the titular demigod and Scott Adkins as King Amphitryon, the film has got a lower rent feel to it, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you think about it, that's was the charm of...

Kellan Lutz introduces the first peek at Renny Harlin's Hercules: The Legend Begins

HERCULES: THE LEGEND BEGINS is gearing up for release next year and star Kellan Lutz wants you to know about it. The actor recorded a video intro from the set of THE EXPENDABLES 3 for a brief teaser of the film, which gives us our first glimpse at Renny Harlin 's next venture on the big screen. The footage is sparse, but gives a decent tease of Lutz as the Son of Zeus, and definitely has a...

Twilight's Kellan Lutz cast as lead in Renny Harlin's Hercules 3D

The Renny Harlin directed HERCULES 3D has now found its Hercules in TWILIGHT and IMMORTALS star Kellan Lutz . Best known for his role as Emmett Cullen in Stephenie Meyer's infamous series of films, the actor has also mostly been cast in roles that cash in on his physique more so than his acting chops. I will say, however, that he was quite good in the underrated IMMORTALS, where he...

Review: Die Hard 2: Die Harder (1990)

NOTE: With A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD opening on Thursday, we thought this would be a great time to revisit the older films from the franchise, so expect a review/day until my review of the latest one is posted on Friday. PLOT : Can this guy ever have a quiet Christmas with his family? On Christmas Eve, Detective John McClane waits for his wife to arrive on an incoming flight....
