Scarface Director Shortlist Includes Hell or High Water Helmer Sometimes it seems like movie remakes are a newer phenomenon, but the truth is that remakes have existed for almost as long as movies have. Everyone knows the 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz for example, but that was preceded by three other films based on the same novel. There are numerous movies about Dracula, but the first was the silent film Nosferatu from 1922.

'John Wick: Chapter 2' Review: Second Verse, Just as Good as the First In 2014, a pair of veteran stunt coordinators introduced the world to John Wick, a former assassin who rages out of retirement to seek revenge on the man who killed his puppy and stole his car. With action as sharp and seemingly seamless as the impeccable suits worn by its eponymous protagonist, John Wick reinvigorated a genre bloated with CGI and dominated by implausibly acrobatic vehicles. In 2017, Keanu Reeves is back with John Wick: Chapter 2, a righteous follow-up that’s bigger and maybe not better, but just as good as its predecessor. Continue reading…

‘John Wick: Chapter Two’ Is A Skull-Shattering Sequel Determined To Outdo The Original Lionsgate The Russians call him “Baba Yaga, meaning “Boogeyman,” an assassin who moves in and out of the shadows, striking with terrible certainty. But that mythical language implies a ghostly immortality that doesn’t quite capture the essence of John Wick. John Wick isn’t a sniper who picks off targets from hundreds of yards away and he isn’t the type to slip into a room and twist a blade without anyone spotting him. His true modus operandi is shooting dozens upon dozens upon dozens of henchman in the head, usually at point blank range.

John Wick has both barrells ready to go in new poster Easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year for action buffs, JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 will reunite us with our beloved Keanu Reeves as he brings John Wick back for more ass-kickery.

Scarface Reboot: Diego Luna Cast as the Lead Ever since it was announced, one of the most unexpected (and some would argue, unnecessary) remakes in the works in Hollywood has been Universal’s planned new take on Scarface. This would, of course, be the third time that the story of Tony Montana was brought to life on the big screen, following Howard Hawkes’ 1932 film of the same name, and Brian de Palma’s 1983 remake starring Al Pacino. Now, while only true film buffs may be familiar with the 1932 original, many consider the 1983 film to be one of the most best gangsters movies of all time.

A handful of new images will get you pumped for John Wick: Chapter Two I don't know about the rest of you, but JOHN WICK: CHAPTER TWO is definitely on my list of my most anticipated movies of 2017. I foolishly didn't expect much from the first JOHN WICK, but the colourful hard-hitting action absolutely made me a believer and I've been looking forward to seeing John Wick (Keanu Reeves) kill just about everyone ever since the sequel was first...

Headshots and Trumpets Abound in This 'John Wick' Supercut There’s nothing quite as much fun as a perfectly conceived and executed supercut. Whether it’s a compilation of movie scenes where Nic Cage loses his mind or a movie dialogue version of one of Lionel Richie’s classic songs, a good supercut is the perfect piece of digital ephemera for movie lovers everywhere. And while most supercuts are fan-made labors of love, at least one studio has noticed the attention given to them and planned its marketing accordingly. So it was that the John Wick ‘Symphony of Violence’ supercut was given unto us, and it was very, very good. Continue reading…

John Wick will deliver head shots in comic form with his own series Along with giving us the puppy-avenging, suit-wearing action hero for the modern age, JOHN WICK offered a glimpse into a deep, imaginative world of assassins seemingly ripped out of a comic book. But anyone looking for some kind of comic book or graphic novel depicting our hero would be left on the floor to cry themelves to sleep. Those days are coming to an end, though, as anyone wanting to... Read More...
