Jason Statham is one of the last true action stars in film. His movies tend to elicit the excitement and adrenaline-fueled rush that Schwarzenegger, Stallone, and Norris were so good at creating back in the 80s. What would Statham’s Flickchart look like? Let’s have a look, shall we?
You might be thinking: “Why in the world would this be considered a Poster of Prominence?”
The reason is it’s a truly terrible poster.
‘Tis the season and we here at Flickchart know that means scrambling for gift ideas. Everyone loves movies, but with so many movie-related gifts out there, it can be difficult to find the right ones. We’ve put together a list here of some of our recommendations, arranged (more or less) by price and intended to cover a wide range of interests. Read the rest of this entry »
The second day of the AFI FEST PRESENTED BY AUDI is an absolute treat for me. I’m still in that “new fest” phase where I’m hammering out my schedule for the rest of the week, seeing just how many screenings I can cram into a single day. I also have the adrenaline from Day 1 coursing through my system. No thought is given to the epic exhaustion I’ll be feeling in just a few short days, or the “fest delirium” that sets in after the third Midnight Screening in a row. It’s all unbridled excitement for new cinema, folks!
This will be my third year attending the AFI FEST PRESENTED BY AUDI. It’s been quite an interesting ride up to this point and I’ve seen some truly fun and amazing films. Ben Wheatley’s Kill List was quite the pleasant surprise last year, as was Quentin Dupieux’s Rubber the year before. I was introduced to the lovely filmmaker Hong Sang-soo by way of his film HaHaHa and then a year later with The Day He Arrives. Got a look into Norwegian crime with Headhunters and was wooed by the smooth melodies of Café de flore. It was also at this festival that I saw Melancholia as well as the US Premiere of The Adventures of Tin Tin. Like I said, quite the experience!
