Listening to James McTeigue talk about his ‘Ninja Assassin‘ leading man Rain makes me wonder if McTeigue isn’t harboring some sort of latent lustful desire for the guy. Then again, look at him. Those are some manly, manly pecs. “Rain is an incredible athlete,” McTeigue said. “An incredible personality too. You just have to spend […]

Am I the only one who doesn’t find these Cinemash shorts very funny? Oh well – I at least have to give this one props for a decent re-enactment of the famous ‘claw hammer’ fight from Oldboy. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy watching corporate executives being beaten to death with a hammer?
Wow, the musical chairs casting call for Green Hornet’s sidekick Kato may finally have ended…! So – who did Seth Rogan choose to fill the departed Stephen Chow’s chauffeur shoes? Asian news outlets are reporting that Korean actor Kwon Sang-woo is currently in talks to play the Green Hornet’s hyper-competent sidekick, alongside a bumbling Seth […]
South Korea’s commie neighbors can now enjoy hamburgers like the rest of the civilized world, although it’s a treat that will likely remain unattainable for most of the population. Burger joint Samtaeseong recently opened in Pyongyang, although ‘hamburgers’ aren’t listed on the menu – probably so as to stave off the effects of contagious Western […]

New clip from Park Chan-wook vampire flick, Thirst – opening July 31st in select cities.

Oh, HELL yes. Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s pulpy action hero The Destroyer (aka Remo Williams) will reportedly make a long-awaited return to the silver screen – so sayeth Aint It Cool News. The first Destroyer film, 1985′s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (directed by Goldfinger helmer Guy Hamilton), was savaged by critics and filmgoers […]
I am really curious to see what emerges from the Stephen Spielberg / Will Smith adapation of Oldboy. Park Chan-Wook’s 2003 film was so remarkable, I have serious doubts that another adaptation can do anything with the source material that Chan-Wook didn’t already achieve. Plus – Spielberg? Smith? Incest? Not a likely combo. But I’ll […]
Here’s something I don’t get: stupid gits in America whining about how gay matrimony is going to violate the sanctity of marriage, when shit like this happens all the time. (another thing I don’t get is, what the Hell is that thing in the picture to the right?) BBC Article It’s not a Korean matchmaking […]
