The Professional TAGS

Movie Jail: This week's defendant is...Luc Besson!

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...

Face Off: Gary Oldman (Leon: The Professional) vs. Gary Oldman (The Fifth Element)

Last week's Face-Off column put diverse A-list actors Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt against each other, and the majority of you thought that Pitt deserved the prize in that match. This weekend offers one of Paul Walker's final screen appearances in the action flick BRICK MANSIONS , a remake of the French movie DISTRICT B13 (aka BANLIEUE 13) from writer/producer Luc Besson. Flipping...

With the release of PRISONERS this week, I decided to pit its star, Hugh Jackman, against...

With the release of French director Luc Besson’s THE FAMILY this Friday, I decided to revisit his two action masterpieces, LA FEMME NIKITA...

Face-Off: Harrison Ford vs. Gary Oldman

I was hoping we would also solve the mystery of whether or not they ever dated each other, but alas no verdict on that yet. This week we decided to pit former AIR FORCE ONE (still crossing my fingers for AIR FORCE TOO) co-stars Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman against one another for...

Cool Videos: 11-year-old Natalie Portman's audition for The Professional is damn impressive

Any Natalie Portman fan knows that the Oscar winning actress stunned audiences with her debut role in THE PROFESSIONAL, or LEON for the non-American fans. Her role as Mathilda is the central role to Jean Reno 's character going from cold-blooded cleaner to a father figure to the young girl. THE PROFESSIONAL is one of my favorite movies and I don't think I have met anyone who dislikes...
