With the help of Oculus' Mike FlanaganOf all the titles being fed into the maw of the Reboot Machine, we really didn’t think anyone would add 1997 horror I Know What You Did Last Summer to the conveyor belt. Still, Sony has gone ahead and done just that, hiring Oculus co-writer/director Mike Flanagan to go back to the source novel – yes, the film had one – for a new stab.Flanagan is working once again with co-producer Jeff Howard, who contributed to the script that turned Oculus from a short into a successful horror film.

What's that? Pierce Brosnan needs a new action franchise now, 12 years after his James Bond stint ended? There's a series of novels ripe for the action genre taking that would suit him perfectly? Let's make that deal. But The November Man, from the novels by Bill Granger, ends up being more than a run-of-the-mill spy thriller. Aided by some superb action directing from Roger Donaldson and a nice turn from its charismatic lead, the film trumps most of the recently standard "old guy in an action flick" turns we've gotten.

With 2008's "Cloverfield," J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves showed that the found footage aesthetic—comprised of shaky, you-are-there camerawork and rough cutting and usually relegated to hardcore horror films like the "Paranormal Activity" series and, of course, "The Blair Witch Project"—could also be employed to evoke moments of wide-eyed awe and wonder. Unfortunately, since then, the gee-whiz factor of found footage has been largely ignored, popping up only occasionally (in things like "District 9" or "Chronicle").
