    G.I. JOE: RETALIATION

    Review: 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation' Is No Masterpiece, But Popcorn Entertainment That Redeems The Series Somewhat

    Heavy on the brawn, light on the brains – the “G.I. Joe” franchise is back. Manned with the usual selection of muscle headed talent, and the odd addition of Bruce Willis (guess he had bills to pay), the second instalment, “G.I.

    On a Sunday when studio films look to take home most of the top Oscars (not always the case), their new pictures aren't playing well with audiences. Only three studio pics make the top ten, while mini-majors and independents carry most of the weight. The continued success of such companies as Weinst...

    Joe Carnahan Exits 'Death Wish,' Studio Wants Bruce Willis To Star

    The remake of "Death Wish" is an interesting prospect, particularly with Joe Carnahan at the helm, who signed up just over a year ago. The original, a distinct B-movie, but one a bit more accomplished than most, still resonates today with its vigilante theme and big guns dispensing justice...

    Good news: four wide releases grossed over $20 million for the four-day Presidents' Day weekend. On paper that looks solid.
