There are a handful of sequels that are as good as (or better than) their progenitors – The Godfather 2, Superman II, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and The Dark Knight come to mind – and now Kingsman: The Golden Circle joins that elite list.
Following the heavy expositional load of the thoroughly entertaining first film, The Golden Circle expands character development (of Eggsy, at least) and introduces a delightfully pragmatic villain who has the best of intentions (and hopes to profit handsomely from them, too).
Hell or High Water is a simple story with a lot of layers – it’s about brothers who are robbing branches of the bank that’s about to foreclose on their family’s ranch in order to pay the bank off. It’s about a Texas Ranger on the brink of retirement who gets one last big case. It’s about the old and the new – and how no matter how much things change, they always remain the same.
Released just in time for the Republican National convention, the new trailer for Hell and High Water follows two brothers who decide to rob the banks that are about to foreclose on the family farm in order to pay off their mortgage.
The brothers are played by Chris Pine and Ben foster. Jeff Bridges plays the about-to-retire Texas Ranger who is trying to track them down.

The story of a youth who transcends the bland utopia of his world is a well thought out piece of dystopic sci-fi until the last act, when it goes off the rails and into the realm of fantasy – thoroughly undermining itself.

R.I.P.D., with its monstrous dead guys and unique weaponry – not to mention its old veteran/rookie dynamic and tightly wound boss (who had a thing with the veteran years ago) – might be based on a comic from Dark Horse, but it takes a lot of its cues from the Men In Black movie series. That’s not a bad thing because, thanks to a wicked awesome cast, it does stand on its own.
The news that Legendary Pictures has signed a deal with NBCUniversal makes Seventh son the last film for which they’ll partner with Warner Brothers.

Charles Portis’ novel, True Grit, is a darkly seriocomic western that satirizes the genre’s conventions by formalizing them to the point of absurdity. It makes sense that the Coen Brothers, who have a similar sensibility, would adapt the novel in a faithful, yet strikingly Coen way.
TRON: Legacy is a simple tale, well told, that becomes a completely immersive experience when the 3-D kicks in – which puts it well ahead of its predecessor, which was a simple tale, barely told, though filled with cutting edge effects.
