Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Trailer


After quitting the United States Army Military Police, Jack Reacher has become an independent crime investigator who looks into hard to solve cases. Having recently worked on the case of a rogue sniper we once again meet Reacher who's on a rampage for justice.

Jack Reacher makes his own laws and seeks justice for those who cannot speak. Reacher sets to work uncovering the ways of a dirty town sheriff and soon wants to meet up with his old friend, Susan Turner. Reacher turns up at Turners base to be told that she's been arrested for crimes. This is then followed by the arrest of Jack himself for a murder that happened more than a decade before. Reacher and Turner are both out on a mission to clear their names but as facts start to fall into place, it turns out that the people behind this mystery might reach far higher than ever thought.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is the second film in the Jack Reacher series (the first released in 2012), based on the books by Lee Childs. Never Go Back is Childs' 18th book in the series.

Straight Outta Compton Review

Very Good

This biopic gallops through the career of groundbreaking gangsta rappers N.W.A, working its way through a checklist of the major events. There isn't much of a plot otherwise, which can be bewildering for anyone who doesn't know all of the people portrayed on-screen. But the acting and filmmaking is confident, which makes the movie feel strikingly relevant.

It opens in late-1980s South Central Los Angeles, a time when rap was dismissed as a little more than a violent chant. But artist Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell) launches Ruthless Records with his manager Jerry Hiller (Paul Giamatti) as a way to promote the music he makes with his friends Ice Cube (O'Shea Jackson Jr.), Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins), DJ Yella (Neil Brown Jr.) and MC Ren (Aldis Hodge). Working together as N.W.A, their album Straight Outta Compton strikes a nerve, selling millions even though its controversial lyrics make it impossible to play on the radio. As money starts rolling in, problems develop in the group. Cube is annoyed that Jerry isn't paying him a fair share of the royalties, so he goes solo. And later Dre also leaves to start his own label, Death Row, with hothead friend Suge Knight (R. Marcos Taylor).

The movie is structured as a series of set-pieces, usually drawing on the musician's camaraderie, which turns into rivalry, sparking tensions and some sort of verbal or musical battle, which escalates into physical violence. These are alpha-males who don't like being told what to do, so they struggle to trust each other. Their clashes begin to feel somewhat repetitive, but the actors are excellent.

Straight Outta Compton - Redband Trailer


In the 1980s, the streets of Compton were brutal. Five friends were brought together by their raw talent for translating the struggles they faced into powerful, poetic music. As the group came together, adopting the name N.W.A., their world steadily began to change around them, becoming a far darker place. And with the release of one particularly controversial song in the wake of a horrific tragedy, N.W.A. were thrown into the public eye, and became the forerunners of a revolution. But looking back, Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella still saw themselves as just a group of friends, straight outta Compton.

TNT To Axe 'Leverage' After Christmas Special


Timothy Hutton Christian Kane Beth Riesgraf Aldis Hodge

TNT has announced that it will be scrapping the popular show Leverage from the air when the current series comes to an end, on Christmas Day (Dec 25).

Leverage, which revolves around a crew of skilled swindlers who use their skills to fight corporate and governmental injustices inflicted on ordinary citizens, was cancelled on Friday (Dec 21) by the network amidst failing ratings, although the news that the show would be ending was announced some time before.

Dean Devlin, executive producer of the show, explained the situation to fans in an open letter released on December 6th on the fan website www.leveragefans.com. In the letter he writes: "As of the writing of this letter, we still do not know if there will be a season six of our show. Because of this uncertainty, [series creator] John Rogers and I decided to end this season with the episode we had planned to make to end the series, way back when we shot the pilot. So the episode that will air on Christmas is, in fact, the series finale we had always envisioned."

TNT To Cancel 'Leverage' After Five Seasons On Air


Timothy Hutton Christian Kane Beth Riesgraf Aldis Hodge

TNT announced today that it is planning to axe the show 'Leverage' from the air after five seasons, with the show ending with a Yuletide finale on Christmas Day.

The network confirmed the news that the drama, which follows a crack squad of highly skilled operatives who fight injustice by staging elaborate scams, will end on Christmas day with the episode, The Long Goodbye Job (10 p.m. ET/PT). What a fitting end.

In a statement made public earlier today (Dec 22), TNT told the press: "Leverage has thrilled audiences with its delightfully intricate plots, its 'stand up for the little guy' attitude and its terrific performances from stars Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge. But after five wonderful years, it's time to say goodbye."

The Tenants Review


OK
On the list of actors that your average casting director is going to look at when casting struggling writers, it's a certainty that Snoop Dogg is nowhere close to being on it. And yet the filmmakers behind The Tenants, a dour and messy piece of work about dueling novelists inhabiting the same Brooklyn tenement in 1972, went ahead and did just that; and were justly rewarded for taking their risk. Snoop more than rises to the task, he fairly walks away with the movie - unfortunately, he doesn't leave enough behind for anybody else to work with.

Danny Green's film of the Bernard Malamud novel starts off with Henry Lesser (Dylan McDermott hidden behind decade-appropriately unfortunate facial hair and hideous eyewear), a writer of the most masochistic sort. The only resident left in a deserted, falling-down building in a seedy corner of Brooklyn, he's hacking away at his typewriter, day after day, trying to finish his third novel; the first one was well received, the second not so much. Occasionally the landlord (Seymour Cassel) comes by to bang at the door and offer him increasingly large sums of money to get out so he can sell the place, but Henry, a creature of habit, keeps begging for more time, saying he'll move after he finishes the novel.
