Harrison Ford Sean Connery

Harrison Ford does not strike me as a very sentimental guy, but he’s made a slight exception to honor his Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade co-star Sean Connery, who died this past weekend at the age of 90.

indiana jones 5 something new

For the first time ever, someone other than Steven Spielberg is directing an Indiana Jones movie.

Indiana Jones 5 Starts Shooting

Indiana Jones 5 feels like one of those movies we’ve been hearing about for over a decade now, but it never seems like it’s actually going to happen. Harrison Ford going to be nearly 80 by the time the movie gets in front of cameras and the coronavirus pandemic is probably going to make it much more difficult to get a blockbuster of that scale off the ground anytime soon. But franchise producer Frank Marshall doesn’t appear to be worried about the next installment of the Indiana Jones franchise, especially with director James Mangold taking over the reins from Steven SpielbergRead More »

the call of the wild review

Most attempts to adapt the works of Jack London to the big screen have, more often than not, resulted in a neutered final product. Chris Sanders‘ live-action/computer-animated adaptation of The Call of the Wild falls firmly in this category.

Gone is the savage romance of London’s short novel in all its untamed glory, instead, The Call of the Wild is a Disney-fied The Revenant — though it’s even less a survival film than it is a schmaltzy celebration of that bond between dog and human. At parts, it feels more like A Dog’s Purpose film than the gritty wilderness tale of London’s original book. The funny thing is, London’s book was a direct rebuke to that bond, painting the majestic call of natural instinct as something more awesome and powerful than any human bond.
