Arnie tries for subtlety, with guns, in 'Sabotage'

Fri, 03/28/2014 - 6:20am

By his own admission, Arnold Schwarzenegger is famous for "black and white," good-versus-bad films. In "Sabotage," the 66-year-old actor plays Breacher, head of a special unit of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) whose members start being brutally killed one by one, after a cartel bust. My characters are usually black and white, I'm the good guy and there are the bad guys, then with a little bit of humor throughout the movie and that's it," he said. Challenging him was director David Ayer, who made 2012's "End of Watch" and wrote the screenplays for "The Fast and the Furious" and "Training Day" in 2001, and 2003's "S.W.A.T."

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 6:03pm

'The Grandmaster' sweeps Asian Film Awards, crew mourn lost stuntman

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 4:06pm

Martial arts fantasy "The Grandmaster" dominated the Asian Film Awards on Thursday with seven wins including best movie, as its emotional director mourned the film's stuntman who was on the missing Malaysian jetliner. India's "The Lunchbox" was the only other film to win multiple prizes at the star-studded event at Macau's City of Dreams casino resort, winning awards for best actor and screenwriter. "The Grandmaster", inspired by the life of Yip Man -- the mentor of legendary kung fu star Bruce Lee -- scooped awards in most other major categories, including best director for Wong Kar-wai and best actress for Zhang Ziyi. But despite the big wins a sombre mood hung over the film crew, with Wong using his acceptance speech to ask Malaysia for greater transparency in the search for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 which went missing on March 8 with 239 people on board.

In Canada snowdrifts, Coen brothers' 'Fargo' gets cable TV treatment

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 7:04am

By Scott Haggett CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - A particularly punishing winter, even by Canadian standards, has served well the new cable television series "Fargo," a reimagining of the blood-soaked black comedy film of the same name by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen. The 10-episode single-season series, which debuts on April 15 on Twenty-First Century Fox Inc's FX cable network, is a new story with different characters, but leans heavily on the frigid Minnesota setting, death, Midwestern folksiness and deadpan humor of its Oscar-winning namesake. The gift of Calgary's coldest and snowiest winter in years made it easy to emphasize the bone-chilling Minnesota winter the detail-oriented Coen brothers made central to their film. "The winter is just perfect for this," said Keith Carradine, who plays the father of rookie cop Molly Solverson (Allison Tolman), the woman who takes over law enforcement when her boss is murdered in sleepy Bemidji, Minnesota.

Review: Body count out of control in 'Raid 2'

Wed, 03/26/2014 - 6:55pm

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Leaving behind the original's grungy Jakarta tenement setting for the luxurious hangouts of Indonesia's organized crime overlords, "The Raid 2" pumps up its production values several notches. Even so, it's easy to imagine that one of the biggest items on the budget might be the orthopedics bill, since this orgy of broken bones and vicious badassery makes its cult predecessor look like a peevish bitch-slap. Lining up bloody showdowns like the dizzying acts of a hyper-violent ballet, Gareth Evans' sequel invites accusations of, ahem, overkill. But the fanboys will eat it up.
