Whether it’s the grueling showdown revelry of The Duelists, the And Then There Were None mystery mechanic of Aliens, or the father-daughter dynamic behind the underrated shaggy dog tale Matchstick Men, filmmaker Ridley Scott is an underrated storyteller.

American Hustle has already won three Golden Globes and it’s up for 10 Academy Awards, so it’s a no-brainer that its March 18th Blu-ray Combo pack release is eagerly anticipated by many a movie buff.

If you’ve seen JCVD or such underrated actions flicks as Sudden Death and , you know that Jean-Claude Van Damme doesn’t mind hamming it up. He gets to chew his share of scenery (and I mean that in a good way) in director Peter Hyams’ rousing action flick Enemies Closer.

Shot with the usual verve and testosterone driven moxie that one can expect from a Michael Mann (Collateral, Thief, Miami Vice) [...]
Although imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Chloe Grace Moretz did not want to mimic Sissy Spacek’s performance in Carrie. Spacek made an indelible mark on the audacious Brian De Palma directed original (which is based on the Stephen King bestseller of the same name). But this is not 1976, and Moretz wanted to [...]
