Rumor Patrol – Samuel L. Jackson Wanted for ‘Die Hard 6′ Return

For many, Die Hard with a Vengeance was the last good Die Hard movie; for others though, Die Hard was the last good Die Hard movie, so let’s just say it’s a contentious debate and leave it at the idea that A Good Day to Die Hard was horrid, horrid, horrid! Still, it collected a few coins at the worldwide box office, and Bruce Willis said he’d enjoy another go in John McCain’s shoes, so a follow-up is inevitable. But will it suck? Perhaps Fox is buttressing their odds by adding one of the reasons that Vengeance was so enjoyable, by re-teaming Willis with Samuel L. Jackson. (more…)

Following-up on last night’s awesome tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be welcoming back a senior member of the now-compromised world security organization for an episode late this month. True, it was reported early this week that Col. Nick Fury in the person of Samuel L. Jackson would be back for S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season finale, but Maria Hill, and her portrayer, Cobie Smulders, will be back before the end of April. If that’s all you want to know, bail now because Winter Soldier and S.H.I.E.L.D. spoilers follow. (more…)

The (Sort of) Story Behind ‘Winter Soldier’s ‘Pulp FIction’ Reference

- 04-08-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

In-jokes are all the rage these days, a fun way to acknowledge that your cast has a life outside the movie you are presently seeing them in, and probably few actors lend themselves to the in-joke better than Samuel L. Jackson. The actor has had roles big and small in a great many of the most iconic movies of the last 20 years, but perhaps none are more known, or quotable, than Pulp Fiction. It would not be out of the question to say that the Quentin Tarantino movie made Jackson a star, and it did so with one monologue in particular. Jackson’s new movie, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, paid tribute to it one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene, and the film’s directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, recently explained how and why they decided to do it. Spoilers follow. (more…)

What is it, like 20 days till this thing is finally released? Quit teasing us Marvel! We’re more than hyped up enough! Okay, so it’s unlikely that’s going to happen three weeks out from the release of a huge studio movie like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but it seems at this rate Marvel will have release the whole thing on Youtube one minute at a time by then. Today’s minute features a meeting of the minds, the minds of S.H.I.E.L.D. that is. Continue below to watch. (more…)

‘RoboCop’ Review – Nothing Quite Like the First Time

- 02-13-14Featured, Film, reviews Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

nb-Movie-Review-RoboCop_2014

Don’t hate RoboCop because it’s a remake of a beloved sci-fi classic, hate it because it’s a tepid and blandish spin on the original film that thinks the best way to re-energize the concept it to go all the places that first one didn’t. Sometimes you do get it right the first time, and sometimes doing things because you can isn’t really a good enough reason for you to go through with it. Having said that, there are some interesting ideas in the new 2014 RoboCop, and some very interesting actors who try to realize them, but essentially this new Cop is a B-effort for a C-movie.

Samuel L. Jackson Nearing the End of His 9 Movie Marvel Contract

- 01-24-14Comics, Film Posted by Mark Poynter

The character Nick Fury can be described as the glue that holds the Marvel Movie Cinematic Universe together. He hasn’t appeared in all the movies, but his presence was always felt. That’s probably why Marvel signed Samuel L. Jackson to a nine picture deal way back before the first Iron Man movie hit he big screen, but how much is left on that contract, and does Jackson have any interest in extending? (more…)
