saw reboot cast

Chris Rock‘s Saw reboot just got a heck of a lot cooler. Samuel L. Jackson has officially joined the cast of the new film, taking on the role of Rock’s father. The new Saw comes courtesy of an original idea by Rock, and while plot details are slim, there’s a good bet killer booby traps will be involved in some capacity. And if we get really lucky, Samuel L. Jackson will say the f-word.  Read More »

shaft review

In 2019’s Shaft, the latest film to take on the name of the 1971 Blaxploitation classic, Samuel L. Jackson‘s John Shaft II bemoans the softening-up of the younger generation, and their fixation with tight pants, coconut water, and lemon towers. “Men need to be men,” he declares to his straight-laced son John Shaft Jr. (Jessie Usher), mourning the good old days when real men shot first and asked questions later. But there’s something to mourn about the new Shaft‘s shift from a cop thriller to sitcom, and how it spends more time making digs at the very millennial audience that it’s supposedly appealing to than reminding the us of why we dug Shaft in the first place.

Shaft trades the franchise’s Blaxploitation action for a buddy-cop routine that only works by the sheer force of Samuel L. Jackson’s charisma. But even Jackson can’t will this movie into being more than a creaky action-comedy that zaps out everything that made the original Shaft such a vibrant and time-honored classic.

shaft red band trailer

Hey, did you know there’s a new Shaft movie coming out this month? If you didn’t, that might be because the marketing for the movie has been oddly lax. Now, with mere weeks to go, a new Shaft red band trailer is here, giving Samuel L. Jackson a chance to do one of the things he does best: say the F-word a lot.  Despite its title, his new film isn’t actually a Shaft remake. Instead, this is a sequel, to both the 2000 Shaft, and the original Shaft from 1971. Why are all three movies called Shaft? Who knows! Watch the trailer below.

Spider-Man Far From Home Details

Peter Parker is dead. After Thanos snapped his fingers at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Tom Holland) went up in dust in the arms of Tony Stark. But somehow, the webslinger returns in Spider-Man: Far From Home, coming to theaters this summer. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean Peter Parker is back from the dead, especially since Marvel Studios has gone to great lengths to ensure that no one know when in the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline the sequel takes place. But thanks to some new Spider-Man Far From Home details, what we do know is Spidey has a little growing up to do, and Nick Fury is going to make sure of that. Read More »

unicorn store trailer

Two years after Brie Larson‘s directorial debut premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, Unicorn Store is finally coming to Netflix.

Jackson, the comedy-drama about a young idealistic woman struggling to find herself had seemingly vanished after its TIFF premiere.
