American Assassin – Meet Damaged Assassin Mitch Rapp!

American Assassin is based on the book of the same title by the late Vince Flynn, and introduces us to Mitch Rapp – a wounded young man who saw his fiancée killed by terrorists and decides to go after them himself.

It could have been a pedestrian thriller by committed performances by Dylan O’Brien, Michael Keaton and Taylor Kitsch – and a very grounded script (and muscular direction) keep it from descending to that level.

Steven Soderbergh is back from his retirement from filmmaking four years ago – with a fierce heist flick that gives Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig a chance to have some real fun.

Logan Lucky is about a heist by a group of redneck/hillbilly/good ole by types who look and sound dumb – but probably ain’t!

John Wick Chapter 2 – Now This Is How You Make an Action Movie!

The first John Wick film was one of the rare action flicks to actually warrant the title film. It was mad crazy in terms of action and remarkably thorough at sketching out the world in which the characters lived and worked.

John Wick Chapter 2 expands that world in fun, messy ways and is even more propulsive than the first. I would say that it’s the rare sequel that is even better (if only marginally) than the original – it deepens every aspect of its world and character.

The Space Between Us Doesn’t Exactly Soar But It Gets There!

Talk about an awkward teen romance!

Gardner Eliot is the first true Martian – born there in 2018 – and the first true Martian orphan (his mother died in childbirth). When he meets Tulsa, another orphan, via the Internet (by 2034 we have instantaneous internet connections between Earth and Mars!), he falls in love.

Immersion Works Trailer: Bon Cop Bad Cop 2!

It’s been not quite a decade since Ontario cop Martin Ward and Québec cop David Bouchard met on a case and overcame some slight… shall we call them… cultural differences to get the job done.

Now their paths are crossing again and, though they’ve remained friends since overcoming those cultural differences, it’s been a year since they last spoke and they find themselves working a case about a car theft ring that may be more than it appears.

Bon Cop Bad Cop 2 Will be in Canadian theaters on May 12th – and American release date is TBD. Check out the trailer after the jump.

DVD Review: Kubo and the Two Strings – Still Brilliant!

77831-KUB_Kubo_27x39_E1(CR)

Kubo and the Two Strings is a genuinely amazing film. It’s a story of family on both an intimate and mythic level. It’s also absolutely gorgeous to look at.

If not for the Pixar release Zootopia, it would be almost certainly a lock for this year’s best animated film Oscar®. The DVD is now available and it’s a must for any collector of great animation.

Florence Foster Jenkins is a film that is based on the last few months of the title character’s life. Jenkins was a fierce music lover – she supported the music scene in New York and eventually decided that she had to sing.

It was not the smartest move she could have made – she is considered to be one of the all-time worst singers.
