    Review: Dwayne Johnson and Adrianne Palicki make GI Joe: Retaliation serious fun

    The bad guys are having a good time in this movie, with Firefly (Ray Stevenson) proving to be a big tall stack of badass alongside the new and upgraded Cobra Commander (Luke Bracey). Riding the line between good and bad, there's Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee), the mysterious ninja with the mysterious secret and the mysterious childhood and the mysterious best friend/worst enemy, Snake Eyes. Jonathan Pryce has a good time playing both the real President and the fake who obviously enjoys vilifying the Joe team members, believing them all to have been wiped out.


    Whatever the case, this movie is breathless in all the right ways, and I think audiences will have fun with it. I had no idea what was going on in some scenes because I don't know the source material very well at all, but overall, it's pretty easy to jump in with this one and get what you're watching right away. Sometimes you want a big fat slice of cheese, and "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" definitely fits the bill.

    I'm okay with Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes going at it for an hour and a half

    Okay just saw GI Joe and I think it was worse than the first one. The plot was crap. Ray Stevenson had some ridiculously bad accent. The rzza was laughably bad, but thankfully little screen time. Over all horrible acting. Only thing I liked was all of the vehicles that made me nostalgic for the toys I had when I was a kid.

    Saw GI Joe today and I thought it didn't stack-up to the first one. The first was big and all-world spanning. Good cast/nice backstory work. Decent sci-fi/tech, but horrible Accelerator suits. This one was bascially all in 4 set pieces.

    The movie logic was off the charts. There were hundreds/thousands of Joes in #1. Now the team is gone after 5 mins in the desert? What happened to all the rewrites? The 3D was also horrible, but maybe it was just my screening.

    If #1 was a 7/8, this one was a 5/6. It looked like Joe, but it was like the animated show: Sunbow was good and then DIC took over and it wasn't the same.

    Why do they always hold underground martial arts fights in empty swimming pools?

    Joe Carnahan in Talks to Direct Chuck Hogan Adaptation SUGAR BANDITS | Collider

    Read the synopsis for Devils in Exile below:

    When Neal Maven and a crew of fellow Iraq War veterans begin ripping off Boston-area drug dealers for profit, their lives are quickly put into jeopardy. As Maven’s involvement deepens, two worrisome things happen: he begins to suspect that their leader has a sinister ulterior motive, and he lusts after the leader’s girl—a tough former model with a drug problem. As the rip-off jobs get riskier, Maven and his crew are soon pursued by both a smart federal DEA agent and by a pair of psychopathic Jamaican hit men on a drug lords’ payroll. When everything goes bad—and it goes very bad—Maven embarks on a one-man crusade to right the wrongs in which he unwittingly participated. Not everyone will survive his crusade, and Maven himself may not live to see the final outcome….

    Vividly told and featuring a stunningly complex plot, Devils in Exile is Chuck Hogan’s most satisfying and powerful thriller yet.
    Ok, so it's not gonna win any awards fro originality...but it's the kinda thing Carnahan does real good. So...IN.

    VIOLET & DAISY Trailer. VIOLET & DAISY Stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel | Collider

    A new trailer for Academy Award-winning writer Geoffrey Fletcher’s (Precious) first directing venture Violet & Daisy has been released. The film centers on two young female assassins, played by Saiorse Ronan (Atonement) and Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), who set out for what they think will be a quick and easy hit, but turns into something much more complicated when their target throws a wrench in the works. The marketing and posters for the film thus far have seemed to be going for that pulpy and modern pop take on young women in today’s society, like Spring Breakers, but the trailer gives off a tone that seems a bit muddled. It has elements of quirky comedy and a more serious and dire consequences drama, but not a clear vision that can be derived just from the trailer.

    Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and click here to read Matt’s review from TIFF 2011. The film also stars James Gandolfini, Danny Trejo, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Cody Horn. Violet & Daisy will be released on June 7th.

    Ronan hasn’t really made a huge misstep in her career yet, even with The Host underperforming recently, so I hope she brings some of the intensity we saw in Hanna to this new girl assassin. Bledel has been playing it cool careerwise lately, but I was a huge fan of her work in Gilmore Girls and last year on Mad Men. Having an impressive cast surrounding them bolsters the idea that this film could be good, but the trailer is just a weird mishmash.

    Salma Hayek To Take On Wave After Wave Of Assassins In Non-Stop Action Picture, Everly - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Everly centers on a down-on-her-luck woman, stuck in her apartment, who must fend off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss.

    ...

    However, the camera never leaves this one apartment. It can look out into the corridor or wherever, but it always stays in the few basic rooms of the apartment where we first meet Everly, even while characters come and go.

    These characters, for the most part, come on a mission to kill only to get killed themselves. There’s a phenomenal amount of action in the script for Everly and it’s often pretty big stuff.
    I like the idea (if it's done right), but is Salma Hayek the right choice?
