Samuel L. Jackson Is Not Lawrence Fishburne, But Who's The Better Actor?


Samuel L Jackson Lawrence Fishburne

Samuel L Jackson had to angrily tell a reporter yesterday that he is “not Lawrence Fishburne!” The actor was right to be angry after all the two have very little in common. Still it doesn't mean we can't try and work out who’s better.

NBC Pulling Next Week's Episode Of Hannibal, Due To Potentially Offensive Violent Content


Mads Mikkelsen Hugh Dancy Lawrence Fishburne

NBC announced this Friday that it would be pulling an episode of its serial killer drama Hannibal, set to air this Sunday. Reason being that in light of the recent incidents of violence in America, including the Newtown school shooting and the bombing of the Boston marathon last week, the network and the show’s producers saw the episode as inappropriate. The cancelled episode reportedly features a subplot in which a character, who brainwashes children into killing other children, according to the Washington Post. It’s obvious why that would be considered inappropriate in light of recent events.

“Hannibal” executive producer Bryan Fuller asked NBC to pull the episode, citing the Newtown, Conn., school shooting in December and this week’s Boston Marathon attack, NBC spokesman Stuart Levine said. The episode will be replaced by another one in the series, without harming the continuity of the plot. Additionally, specific scenes from the unaired episodes will be featured in a special “clip package” on the NBC website, without the cut inappropriate content. The scenes will be available from next week with special commentary by Fuller.

Hannibal centers around Hannibal Lecter, the iconic character from Silence of the Lambs and its sequels, as well as the original novel by Thomas Harris. Mads Mikkelsen stars in the thriller as Hannibal and Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne are also part of the star-studded cast.

Event Horizon Review


Weak
After Paul W.S. Anderson unleashed the blockbuster Mortal Kombat, he could do no wrong in the eyes of millions of geeks. He was the fanboy's filmmaker, creating a video game movie that was as fun and trashy as the game itself. All the nerds had high, high hopes that Anderson would settle into a career as fandom's new hotshot. Boy were they disappointed. Somewhere along the line, poor Anderson went from the top of the heap to the bottom of the barrel. (Poor bastard's name is rubbed in the mud almost as often as Uwe Boll!) And most fanboys say that Event Horizon was Anderson's fall from grace. A shame really, because the film's better than most science fiction hokum. (And heads above his next pic, Soldier. Not to mention every... other... film.... after... that. Geez, guy just can't catch a break, huh?)

The plot concerns a scientific spaceship - the Event Horizon - that was sent into a black hole with a full crew. The ship, naturally, vanishes and reappears years later, empty and sulking in a space fog. A small rescue crew is sent out to rendezvous with the Event Horizon, comprised of all your traditional stock characters (stoic Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne), Dr. William Weir (Sam Neill), Med Tech Peters (Kathleen Quinlan), and the usual spacefaring grunts). Once onboard the desolate Event Horizon, all manner of bizarre things begin taking place, and it's quite clear from the outset that wherever the Event Horizon was, it didn't come back alone. We're not talking Alien territory here, nothing that tangible, but the residue of some otherworldly hell that has infested the hulk of the ship and imbued it was a hideous life of its own. Or perhaps, it really did go to the hell. It's a bit unclear.

Othello Review


Grim
Seldomly have I been so outright disappointed by a film. Othello's problems are numerous, and given the outstanding cast put together for the film (and an admitted masterpiece to work with), it's amazing that this film comes off as being so downright bad.

The story's been around for 400 years. Othello (Lawrence Fishburne) is a Moorish general in the Italian army, and he is the victim of constant prejudice. Desdemona (Irene Jacob) is his Italian lover, and when the pair secretly marry, Othello finds himself the victim of a fiendish plot by his servant Iago (Kenneth Branagh). Iago's motives are also magnified by the presence of young Cassio (Nathaniel Parker), who serves as Othello's right-hand man despite Iago's longer term of service.
