The Transporter, starring Jason Statham (The Expendables), was a trilogy in the early 2000's that all but put Statham on the acting map, proving he could carry a film as a leading man.  As Frank Martin, he was the perfect combination of calm, cool and collected, with an element of "thug" underneath.  The first film in the series...

The Green Inferno, the latest film by Eli Roth (Hostel), was clearly inspired by Ruggero Deodato's Cannibal Holocaust. It is also clear that Roth owes a debt of gratitude to the Italian filmmaker, since he was the king of low-budget gore. Deodato's film was banned in many countries, and most people at the time were uncertain of the origin o... Read More

A couple of years ago, a foul mouthed teddy bear named Ted took the box office by storm, and, in true Hollywood fashion, a sequel was greenlit before the movie hit home release. While the first film was just exploring the world of Ted and his best friend, John Bennett  (Mark Wahlberg; Transformers: Age of Extinction), ... Read More
