24 Live Another Day

Kiefer Sutherland has indicated that he may be done with Jack Bauer, even as Fox keeps insisting there could be more 24. Well, it turns out those two statements aren’t mutually exclusive — because Fox is considering making the next installment without him.

blackhat

Michael Mann’s Blackhat is an early contender for one of the worst films of 2015. It plays out like a really bad, excruciatingly boring parody of Mann’s films. The plot is paper thin, the relationships are completely implausible, and the dialogue is laughable, to the extent that much of my audience found the film unintentionally hilarious.

Sure Blackhat has some of Mann’s trademark flourishes, including a couple thrilling shootouts and some gorgeous cinematography of exotic locales. But there are so many elements that are truly terrible that they overshadow anything good about the movie. Hit the jump to see my full video review of Blackhat.
