People lamenting the lack of any new Terminator movies need only look to British action actor Jason Statham for their fix. True, Statham movies have little in the way of science fiction in them but the dude always plays the same indestructible character in every single film. Such a niche was once filled by Charles Bronson in the late 70’s and into the 1980’s.   Statham is the British version of Chuck Norris: always dependable to be an ass kicker and always counted upon to never, ever step outside of his comfort zone. That trend continues in his latest actionerHOMEFRONT.

I think the Matthew McConoughay when knew, loved, and loved to make fun of for films such as FOOL’S GOLD and HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS is dead and gone now. That guy, a pretty boy never content to shoot a film that didn’t contain at least one scene in which had had his chiseled torso exposed in front of the cameras, has shuffled off this mortal coil.   He has been replaced by an actor who is interested in taking risks and submerging himself in a variety of challenging characters. I personally find this new McConoughay much more interesting and this new McConoughay is what makes DALLAS BUYERS CLUB one of the most entertaining films of the year.

There’s a lot of buzz around Robert Redford’s new survival film ALL IS LOST, most of it focusing on how spry the 77-year-old Redford is and how little dialogue permeates the finished film. I can say all of this is true. Redford is remarkable and the script is almost completely free of the spoken word. That said, ALL IS LOST is one of the more frustrating experiences I’ve had at the theater this year. Technically flawless but, for me at least, somewhat emotionally inert, J.C. Chandor’s (MARGIN CALL) latest's reach exceeds its grasp.

Of the plethora of superheroes populating the current Marvel movie universe, Thor is probably the hardest to get right. He is, for all intents and purposes, an immortal god and his world delves into the realm of magic and fantasy more than any of the other heroes in this current series of movies. That said, 2011’s THOR did a great job of marrying the Asgardian to the current universe and the hammer wielding deity’s latest effort, THOR: THE DARK WORLD, is an exciting, more expansive return to Marvel’s preeminent realm of gods and monsters.

I doubt that anyone doesn’t believe the era of slavery in America to be one of our nation’s darkest periods in our history yet I cannot think of a compelling film giving life to this historical nightmare. Oh for certain we have the classic television adaptations of Alex Haley’s ROOTS and Speilberg’s AMISTAD, but the cinematic depictions of slavery as its primary subject matter have seemingly been few and far between. (And DJANGO UNCHAINED doesn’t count, by the way.) Now I can say that cinematic oversight has been remedied as filmmaker Steve McQueen has given us the most harrowing and heartbreaking portrayal of human bondage ever so far put to film.
