In 1971, Bruce Lee pitched a concept for a TV series called The Warrior, following a martial artist in the American Old West. But the project fell through and the idea has laid dormant since. But about four years ago, Fast & Furious director Justin Lin teamed up with Cinemax to bring Lee’s never-produced idea to life.

Now Lee’s dream has been realized in the form of the Cinemax TV series Warrior, which is loosely based on his original concept. Set in San Francisco’s Chinatown in the late 1800s, the series follows Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji), a martial artist who has immigrated from China and gets caught up in the Tong Wars taking over the city.

Gavin O’Connor has directed two movies that should’ve had bigger audiences. Miracle did respectably at the box office, but that inspiring drama still felt slightly overlooked the year it came out. O’Connor’s 2011 film, Warrior, opened to positive reviews but a weak opening at the box office. The movie, which reportedly cost $25 million, made under $14 million in the States. It was a shame seeing a movie that sincere not connect, but the film has found some fans over the years. Maybe not enough fans to make a Warrior 2 a reality, but that’s not stopping O’Connor from considering a sequel.

Below, read what O’Connor had to say about a Warrior sequel.

Last year, Quentin Tarantino released a list of what he called the best films of 2011. This year he has repeated the list-making effort, and Tarantino’s list of the best eleven films of 2011 is out now. (Or best twelve films, really, since there is a tie in one position.) Along with that comes a collection of associated lists, from his estimation of the best directors of the year, to a set of ‘nice try’ picks, which includes some peoples’ fave film, Drive.

Check out the main list below. Read More »

Germain’s Top 10 Movies of 2011

In 2011, I saw more new movies than I ever have in the past. Previous years I’d flirted with roughly two per week but, this year, thanks to a full Sundance Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, Butt-Numb-A-Thon and other events like AFI Fest and the Los Angeles Film Festival, that number jumped up to 167. Several of those won’t be released until 2012 and others won’t get released at all, but it’s still a more than sufficient cross section of 2011 releases to adequately speak on the state of film in 2011 and give my top ten movies of the year. (Note: Any film that didn’t get an Oscar qualifying 2011 theatrical run did not qualify for this list. That’s just my personal rule.)

For me, 2011 was the year of “good, but not great.” You know the type. A film that does everything right, is entertaining, emotional, but doesn’t stick with you once you’ve left the theater. We’re lucky to have films like that because, alternatively, we could get films that are total garbage. Looking back at the year as a whole, though, very few 2011 films will stick with me as all-time favorites. It was a good year, but not great.

The films after the jump were the ones that stayed with me more than most though and, because of that, earned a place as my top ten films of 2011. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Every year during awards season, The Hollywood Reporter somehow organizes the schedules of basically every single actor, actress, writer and director of the year’s best films to sit down and discuss them. This, in itself, is pretty spectacular. What’s even better is they release the videos of the full conversations so we can watch. For the 2011 Actors Roundtable, they’ve brought together George Clooney of The Descendants, Christopher Plummer of Beginners, Gary Oldman of Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy, Christoph Waltz of Carnage, Albert Brooks of Drive and Nick Nolte of Warrior to discuss their own, and each others’, performances, all of which have a good shot at multiple award nominations. Check out the video after the jump. Read More »
