Stallone's Nostalgia Tour Continues. 'Rambo V' a Go Picture

The Rambo films of the 80's are a zeitgeist of the times.  Sylvester Stallone, a guy's whose career seems to defy the odds, thanks to some well timed and profitable call backs to his glory days, is more than ok with sqeezing every inch of milk out his cash cow.  And since he can't seem to find any footing with films that aren't sequels or of the Expendables variety, what better time than now to bring back John Rambo for one last dance...but I think that was said the last time.  Anyway, Rambo V seems to be a happening...really really happening.

Could Harrison Ford's Big Break Delay 'Star Wars: Episode VII'?

Well, here's some pretty definitive proof that having massive piles of money doesn't necessarily mean that the production of your film will go smoothly.  A few days ago, Harrison Ford injured himself on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII in what was originally reported to be a minor ankle fracture. An official statement was released shortly afterwards, saying that filming was going to continue as usual, with just a few filming schedules being switched around.  According to recent reports, that might not be the case.

Movie Review: '22 Jump Street'

22 Jump Street

Starring Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube
Directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller
Rated R


For whatever reason, logical or illogical, there always seems to be the philosophy that bigger is always better…its not by the way.   That logic though, seems to be the dominant force when it comes to creating a sequel to your previously massive hit.  What’s amazing though, is when movies take on this logic, more often than not; they never end up being as good or as profitable as its predecessor.   But yet, everyone continues to follow this trend.  Take for example the recently released trailer for Dumb & Dumber To.  I will admit I laughed a couple of times during the trailer, but it’s painfully clear they are taking this approach and that’s not what made the first one so successful and beloved.  21 Jump Street shocked a few people, including myself, in just how funny it was.  And the comedy didn’t come from strategically placed gags; it came from the interactions between Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.  It’s the same thing that made Dumb & Dumber so great.  22 Jump Street, a sequel that, even by its own admission, is lucky to exist, is fully aware of what needs to get done, even if it still falters at the same time.

Critical Hit: 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'

Before Marvel's behavior towards Edgar Wright was pissing everyone off, the focul point of everyone's ire seemed to be the mediocrity of the television incarnation of the cinematic universe, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agitated viewers cited filler episodes, boring characters, and unimaginative scripts.  Me? I just hate that I have to take the time to put periods after ever letter in the last word of the title.  Here are the guys from Critical Hit talking about their grievances with the series. Enjoy!

Veteran Writer Lawrence Kasdan Takes Over 'Boba Fett' Spin-Off?

Lawrence Kasdan is one of those names in Hollywood who really should be more well known.  He was the main screenwriter behind The Empire Strikes Back, the one installment in the original trilogy usually regarded as the lynchpin that made it so great.  Luckily, that's not a detail the studio heads over at Disney have overlooked.  After a whole bag load of Star Wars spin-offs have been announced, we have some pretty reliable rumors as to who will be behind them.
