This one is simple. Which one has the most exciting action?
RoboCop has blood and gore galore, and all of it’s exaggerated with great intention. Still, even though the film is a commentary on the numbing effect of violence, it still looks freaking badass. Especially the scenes with the stop-motion ED-209 robot. Awesome stuff.
Total Recall’s Action
Total Recall is an espionage movie at its heart, so there’s plenty of sci-fi gunplay, as well as cool hand-to-hand combat. But for a 1990’s Arnold Schwarzenegger film, it’s a lot more cerebral than combative.
Starship Troopers’ Action
Starship Troopers shows the effects of war as the soldiers fight alien bugs, but it’s really not all that interesting. For a much more visually impressive movie about soldiers fighting bug-like aliens, see Edge of Tomorrow.
The Action Victor – RoboCop
By being a commentary on violence, it actually delivers the most exciting action by far. Strange how that happened, but it did.
Candyman is one of the highly-anticipated films of 2021 because of Jordan Peele as co-writer and producer, Nia DaCosta as director and co-writer, a talented cast, and an already rich storyline and film history. As a fan of horror movies, a fan of what Peele does to horror, and someone who was terrified of the original Candyman character, this is a film that I am anxious to see.
Like any film that has a lot of buzz around it, the Candyman team behind this “spiritual sequel” remains quiet–keeping anticipation and suspense high. Despite the secrecy surrounding this film, there are a few important things that we know about the new Candyman flick.
Spoiler warning: I will be mentioning a few plot points and spoilers from the original Candyman**. Proceed with caution.**
One could make the argument that David Fincher is forgetting about the wave of “micro-budget” titles (which is to say movies that are made for less than $10 million) that have become a big part of the release calendar, but the core of his point is wholly factual. With studios ever more focused on massive investments or guaranteed prestige pictures, movies that aim for a budget in the $30-50 million range have become hard to get made and, as a result, rare.
Warning: spoilers for The Village are in play. If you’ve somehow escaped spoilers for this M. Night Shyamalan film, and want to remain that way, don’t follow us into the woods.
A little over 16 years ago, M. Night Shyamalan was on a hot streak, as his career had delivered three solid hits into the world: The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs. Terror laden tales of people overcoming personal trauma, and becoming stronger than they ever could have imagined, this landmark trio served as the foundation for the writer/director’s meteoric rise in the Hollywood firmament. And then, on July 30, 2004, all of that changed when The Village saw critics, and even fans, turning against the steadily climbing auteur and his visions. Part of the problem was, folks didn’t know what to make of The Village’s ending, and there’s a really good reason for that.
Born in 1924, Shirley Chisolm grew up in Brooklyn, New York and attended Brooklyn College before earning her Masters degree at Columbia University. Her first step into politics was in a support role, as she helped campaigns for those she supported, and she was a member of the Brooklyn Democratic Clubs and the League of Women Voters. She first ran for a seat in the New York state assembly in 1964, and while she faced resistance she first won in the Democratic primary and then trounced her Republican and Liberal party opponents in the election. In 1968 she ran for U.S. House of Representatives serving New York’s 12th congressional district, and once again won in a landslide, making her the first Black woman ever in congress.
Henry Jones Gasping In Shock At Indiana Jones Killing Nazis
Not long after Indiana Jones comes to rescue his dad, several Nazis enter with machine guns, demanding they hand over Henry Jones’ Grail Diary. Henry Jones scoffs, mocking the Nazis for believing Indiana Jones would be stupid enough to bring the diary all the way back. Of course, Indiana Jones did just that. But, instead of handing it over, Indiana Jones seizes a machine gun and guns down the Nazis. Henry Jones, in absolute shock, says, “Look what you did. I can’t believe what you did.”
Disco Cabbie (200 Cigarettes)
Well, at least Dave Chappelle is not alone in that regard when it comes to this underrated 1999 dramedy that often goes unmentioned when discussing the filmographies of its entire star-studded ensemble, including Ben Affleck, Christina Ricci, Paul Rudd, Kate Hudson, Courtney Love (yes, that Courtney Love), and Elvis Costello as himself. Chappelle’s role, known only as Disco Cabbie for his decked, funky taxi, is the one character whom most of the cast of romantically challenged New Yorkers have in common during a fateful New Year’s Eve in 1981.
This Saturday, streaming platform Looped Live will see Scream stars Neve Campbell, David Arquette, Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich, Rose McGowan and Jamie Kennedy getting together for a moderated Q&A. What’s more, original Scream screenwriter Kevin Williamson will also be on hand to help make the proceedings all the more interesting. The occasion for this gathering is to not only take fan questions pertaining to this classic slasher series, but to also act as a fundraiser for organizations such as National Breast Cancer Coalition, “I Have a Dream” Foundation – Los Angeles, and the East Los Angeles Women’s Center.
While it’s possible there’s still a little extra work to be done before F9 is 100% finished, such as ironing out the VFX, the next installment in the Fast & Furious franchise is almost at the finish line, and with plenty of time to spare. F9 isn’t scheduled to arrive until next May, so Lin and his team could have easily spread out the work and finished F9 just a month or two before delivering it to the public. Instead, it sounds like F9 will be ready to go before 2020 is over.
