Arnold Schwarzenegger has returned in The Last Stand, a sort-of amped up, extra-violent version of Unstoppable. It’s not perfect, and starts off kind of slow, but once the film gets going it becomes the mindless fun you’d expect.
Sometimes good people do evil things.
Sometimes, it arises from a false sense of security, the mistaken idea of a victimless crime. Sometimes, it’s just part of the job. In this episode of Reel Rumbles, two films face off that feature decent characters performing heinous acts. The circumstances are different, but the results are the same: The lives of Hank Mitchell and Paul Edgecombe are forever altered by the very bad things they are forced – or choose – to do.
We all have our demons. When a particularly tough match-up shows up, those nightmares manifest on Flickchart and haunt us until we finally muster up the courage to click. Some of us aren’t that lucky though. These are their stories.
Meet Tom Hanks.
53 years old, modestly handsome, and preposterously nice. What follows are the final two minutes of his Flickcharting life.
The year is 1979, and film audiences are about to discover that in space, no one can hear you scream. Seven years later, the terror returns, and this time – it’s war.
The two films – Alien and Aliens – were unlike anything audiences had seen before, or were likely to again. Each was groundbreaking to its specific genres – the first to horror, and second to action. While most have been able to agree the two are terrific, the real conflict comes when asked to pick the superior film.
Now in this, the inaugural edition of Flickchart’s newest blog feature, Reel Rumbles, it’s time these titans stepped into the ring and finally decided, once and for all, which is the better film.
