Film Review: Buffalo Boys (2018) by Mike Wiluan

In one of the latest tendencies in Asian cinema, production companies from S. Korea and Japan have begun penetrating the Indonesian market, financing local filmmakers to shoot big budget productions (for the country’s standards that is). Cj Entertainment financed Joko Anwar’s “Satan Slaves” for example, while in this case, Nikkatsu funded Mike Wiluan, producer of films like “Headshot” and “Macabre”, to shoot a Western with an Indonesian flavor. The result was this particular movie.

Buffalo Boys” is screening at the 17th New York Asian Film Festival

In 1860, Arana, Jamar and Suwo return to Indonesia after fleeing to America decades ago, following the massacre of sultan Hamza by Captain Van Trach, during an Indonesian uprising against the Dutch.

Jackie Chan has found a new crime-fighting partner in John Cena for an upcoming action-thriller which is to be directed by the Need for Speed director Scott Waugh.

Movie Review – The Foreigner (2017)

The Foreigner, 2017.

Directed by Martin Campbell.

Starring Jackie Chan, Pierce Brosnan, Rufus Jones, Charlie Murphy, and Orla Brady.

Synopsis:

The story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge fuelled vendetta when the only person left for him to love – his teenage daughter – is taken from him in a senseless act of politically motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

Jackie Chan’s career in the West has been a mixed bag to put it mildly. Even at the height of his popularity West of China, in Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon etc, he was doing affable (if disposable) entertainment. The trouble was, among his better aforementioned works, he was doing dreadful films like

30 Things We Learned from James Mangold’s ‘3:10 to Yuma’ Commentary

“No one, and I mean no one wanted to make this movie.”

James Mangold delivered one of this year’s best films with Logan, and among its many acclaimed aspects is its vibe and feel of a modern-day western. It’s something he’s done before with Cop Land, but Mangold also made a point of directing an actual western as well.

Keep reading to see what I heard on the commentary track for…

3:10 to Yuma (2007)

Commentator: James Mangold (director)

1. He assumes the first question we might have for him regarding this film is “why” make a remake at all? “That original film had had such power on me ever since I saw it when I was seventeen years old, and I felt that the story could have power again in a very relevant way now.”

2. While he thinks most remakes are motivated by greed in his eyes for easy, recognizable

Hong Kong goes West - When Hong Kong film makers attempt to break the Western market - part 3

2000’s Even though Rush Hour was a critical and financial success, Jackie Chan chose not to solely focus on the American market. Following Rush Hour, Chan would go on to star in the romantic comedy Gorgeous (1999), a very different Jackie Chan movie. He would also produce Gen X Cops (1999) as well as appear in the film in a small cameo. On his return to Hollywood, he would star in Shanghai Noon, a Wild West set action comedy that surpasses Rush Hour in a number of ways, with even better action and a great co-star in the form of Own Wilson. Shanghai Noon also had fellow Hong Kong movie star, and member of the seven little fortunes Yuen Biao working behind the scenes on...

Owen Wilson Super-Cut: From ‘Royal Tenenbaums’ to  ‘Midnight in Paris,’ He Sure Says ‘What?’ a Lot
Everyone knows Owen Wilson says “what?” a lot in movies. What this video presupposes is…maybe he says it even more than we realized? One brave YouTube user has compiled a two-minute super-cut of the actor uttering that one word ad infinitum, with Wilson’s delivery ranging from mildly confused to utterly exasperated. Watch it below.

The video accounts for almost all of the actor’s filmography, including “Bottle Rocket,” “Wedding Crashers,” “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Shanghai Noon,” “Shanghai Knights,” “The Darjeeling Limited,” “The Internship,” “The Haunting,” “Midnight in Paris” and so on and so forth.

Tomb Raider: Hateful Eight’S Walton Goggins To Sign On As Villain

Image via The Weinstein Company

With Assassin’s Creed on the horizon, studios seem to be prepping many of their various video game properties for the eventual onslaught on Hollywood. While the industry has more than its fair share of inevitable films that will hit the box office with a dull thud, there are still several properties that show a great deal of promise. One of the promising films in development — and with a star attached, no less — is Tomb Raider, starring Alicia Vikander.

Tomb Raider is a film that has a lot going for it. In addition to already having a fairly successful run at the Hollywood box office in the early 2000s, it has the added benefit of a recent video game reboot. Not only did this reboot help to restore faith in the series franchise as a video game, but it gave it a second life at Hollywood,

5 Fun, Action-Packed Westerns To See Before The Magnificent Seven

Gotta love a good old-fashioned Western. It’s a genre that’s been an American staple for decades. The image of the lone gunslinger is one that’s inspired countless novels, films, comics, and TV shows — and it’s one that’s bound to continue to do so for countless years. Though while as kids the genre may have been synonymous with fun adventure, the reality is that the majority of these flicks are slow, meditative character studies.

That’s all well and good, but I’m gonna chuck every one of those movies out the window today. You won’t find me talking about The Assassination of Jesse James, Once Upon A Time In The West, or The Unforgiven here. Granted, I acknowledge the quality of those films, but today, I wanted to highlight a handful of flicks that may be more in line with what we’ll be
