ordinary love trailer

Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville are anything but ordinary. Both Oscar-nominated acting powerhouses in their own right, together they can only be extraordinary. But they deliver quietly moving performances in Ordinary Love, a tearjerking drama from the directing team Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn (Good Vibrations). Watch the Ordinary Love trailer below.

cold pursuit review

After Taken, Liam Neeson’s career changed drastically. He went from being the dramatic actor from Schindler’s List to an official ass-kicker, inhabiting action movies that could best be described as Dad Rock – films tailor-made for fathers across the land to enjoy. This newfound reputation occasionally backfires, though. The most obvious example is The Grey, a fantastic, haunting movie about death and grief that was marketed as Liam Neeson Fights Wolves. The marketing sunk the movie in a lot of people’s minds.

Now here comes Cold Pursuit, which might suffer the same fate. The ads play up the angle that this film involves Neeson out for revenge, and while that’s certainly a part of the film, there’s a lot more going on here. And I don’t know if casual moviegoers are prepared for that.

cold pursuit clip

The lesson in all Liam Neeson movies seem to be: don’t underestimate Liam Neeson. But many men do, and it ends in them getting their heads brutally bashed in by the gravelly-voiced vengeance-seeker.

Neeson has another cold weather thriller on his hands with Cold Pursuit, a remake of a 2014 Norwegian black comedy titled In Order of Disappearance. While the film so far doesn’t seem to have that same dark comedy bent of the original, Lionsgate has released a new clip that could potentially inspire some chuckles.

cold pursuit trailer

Snowplow driver Liam Neeson wants revenge in the Cold Pursuit trailer. This remake of In Order of Disappearance finds Neeson taking down a gang of drug dealers who murdered his son. And hey, Laura Dern is here, too! Cold Pursuit was previously going by the (much better) title Hard Powder, but I suppose everyone thought they wanted a more pun-based title. Watch the very entertaining Cold Pursuit trailer below!

Ballad of Buster Scruggs Review

It can be tough to take the Coen Brothers at their word – after all, the duo claims (seemingly in jest) that they never read Homer’s The Odyssey despite basing O Brother, Where Art Thou? on it. But if they were forthright about the origins of their latest work, the anthology film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, then it serves as a kind of career compendium. They wrote the film’s first segment, a comedic musical western, decades ago when their work had a more overtly comical bent. They wrote the final segment, on the other hand, just before starting production on the film in order to put an adequate bow on the project.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs functions like a greatest hits album for the Coens, though somehow with songs we’ve never heard before. It spans and encompasses the many styles of filmmaking they mastered over decades behind the camera. Their expert wielding of tone and mood has rarely been so evident as it is within each yarn they tell, all from a book of stories complete with color plates. Read More »

Who says cinema is dead? As long as someone is ready to make a Liam Neeson snowplow action movie, the medium of film will live forever. Neeson is set to star in Hard Power, a remake of the 2014 Norwegian film In Order of Disappearance. Neeson plays a snowplow driver going up against a drug cartel. If that doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what else to say.

Anyway, we now know when this miracle will hit theaters.
