Class Of 1999 (1990)

The time is the future, and youth gang violence is so high that the areas around some schools have become “free fire zones” into which not even the police will venture. When Miles Langford (Malcolm McDowell), the principal of Kennedy High School, decides to take his school back from the gangs, robotics specialist Dr. Robert Forrest (Stacy Keach) provides “tactical education units”. Human-like androids have been programmed to teach and are supplied with weapons to handle discipline problems. These kids will get a lesson in staying alive!

‘The Hurricane Heist’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Toby Kebbell, Maggie Grace, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Melissa Bolona, Christian Contreras, James Cutler, Ben Cross, Ed Birch | Written by Scott Windhauser, Jeff Dixon | Directed by Rob Cohen

A heist takes place during a hurricane… It’s difficult to imagine a sillier plot outside of Snakes on a Plane, but, like that film, The Hurricane Heist takes its ridiculous premise and runs with it, delivering about as much fun as it’s possible to have with a film this stupid.

Every action hero needs a tragic backstory, so here we get two for the price of one, as young brothers Will and Breeze witness their father getting crushed by a water tower during Hurricane Andrew in 1992. And as if that wasn’t traumatic enough, the CGI clouds morph into a shrieking skull face, just to ram the point home.

Cut to the present day and the brothers’ lives have

‘The Hurricane Heist’ Review

Stars: Toby Kebbell, Maggie Grace, Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Melissa Bolona, Christian Contreras, James Cutler, Ben Cross, Ed Birch | Written by Scott Windhauser, Jeff Dixon | Directed by Rob Cohen

It appears to be the season for ridiculously dumb, yet surprisingly entertaining popcorn movies. Hot on the heels of Pacific Rim: Uprising comes The Hurricane Heist, in which, yes, a heist takes place during a hurricane. It’s difficult to imagine a sillier plot outside of Snakes on a Plane, but, like that film, The Hurricane Heist takes its ridiculous premise and runs with it, delivering about as much fun as it’s possible to have with a film this stupid.

Every action hero needs a tragic backstory, so here we get two for the price of one, as young brothers Will and Breeze (yep, there’s a character called Breeze in a hurricane movie) witness their father getting crushed by

Insane Hurricane Heist Trailer Unleashes a Storm of Non-Stop Action

Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures has released the first trailer, poster and photo for The Hurricane Heist (previously known as Category 5), which combines extreme weather with grand larceny. This story is set on the Gulf Coast of Alabama, at a U.S. Mint facility, where a crew of thieves find their plans to rob this facility upended by a storm that becomes much bigger than anticipated. This action-thriller could end up being one of the surprise hits at the box office this spring.

Under the threat of a hurricane, opportunistic criminals infiltrate a Us Mint facility to steal $600 million for the ultimate heist. When the hurricane blows up into a lethal Category 5 storm and their well-made plans go awry, they find themselves needing a vault code known only by one Treasury Agent (Maggie Grace), a need that turns murderous. But the Treasury agent has picked up an unlikely ally, a

First Absurd Trailer for Storm Action Movie 'The Hurricane Heist' Hits

"This is gunna be harsh!" Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for the most absurd, ridiculous movie of 2018 - The Hurricane Heist. So here's the concept - thieves attempt a massive heist against the U.S. Treasury as a Category 5 hurricane approaches one of its Mint facilities. And this is made by director Rob Cohen, of the infamous Stealth and xXx and Fast and the Furious. Stay away, stay far far away. The cast for The Hurricane Heist includes Maggie Grace as the one and only Treasury Agent who has the code to the vaults, plus Toby Kebbell as a terrified meteorologist (seriously?), as well as Ryan Kwanten, Ralph Ineson, Melissa Bolona, Ben Cross, Jamie Andrew Cutler, and Christian Contreras. Yes, this looks as crazy as it sounds, and not in a good way. I mean, sure, the concept is a tiny bit fun, but this looks

Christopher Nolan Curates BFI Series on the Influences of ‘Dunkirk’

“I spent a lot of time reviewing the silent films for crowd scenes –the way extras move, evolve, how the space is staged and how the cameras capture it, the views used,” Nolan said earlier this year when it came to the creation of his WWII epic Dunkirk, referencing films such as Intolerance, Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans, and Greed, as well as the films of Robert Bresson.

Throughout the entire month of July, if you’re in the U.K., you are lucky enough to witness a selection of these influences in a program at BFI Southbank. Featuring all screenings in 35mm or 70mm — including a preview of Dunkirk over a week before it hits theaters — there’s classics such as Greed, Sunrise, and The Wages of Fear, as well as Alien, Speed, and even Tony Scott’s final film.

Check out Nolan’s introduction below, followed by

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk To Play At BFI Southbank On July 13

Running from 1-31 July, BFI Southbank are delighted to present a season of films which have inspired director Christopher Nolan’s new feature Dunkirk (2017), released in cinemas across the UK on Friday 21 July.

Christopher Nolan Presents has been personally curated by the award-winning director and will offer audiences unique insight into the films which influenced his hotly anticipated take on one of the key moments of WWII.

The season will include a special preview screening of Dunkirk on Thursday 13 July, which will be presented in 70mm and include an introduction from the director himself.

Christopher Nolan is a passionate advocate for the importance of seeing films projected on film, and as one of the few cinemas in the UK that still shows a vast amount of celluloid film, BFI Southbank will screen all the films in the season on 35mm or 70mm.

In 2015 Nolan appeared on stage alongside visual artist

The 24 Most Important Vampire TV Shows Ever, Ranked
Today is the 20th anniversary of the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” premiere, and the day that “The Vampire Diaries” airs its series finale — a day sure to go down in broadcast history as Vampire TV Day.

But those two shows are far from the only ones to depict bloodsuckers (to use a pejorative term) on screen, and IndieWire has dusted off the TV crypt to unearth a ranker of our favorite fangs.

Yes, we know there’s a lot at stake here.

Some rules for this list: At least one of the series regulars has to be a vampire. Also, no kids shows (sorry, “My Babysitter’s A Vampire”), no animation (sorry, “Count Duckula”), no foreign language shows (sorry, South Korea — wow, you guys like vampires) and no miniseries or anthology series (which is why “American Horror Story: Hotel

Star Trek: Discovery adds James Frain as Spock’s father, premiere date delayed

CBS’ upcoming new series Star Trek: Discovery has added a new member to its cast, this time in the form of a previously-established character in the Star Trek canon: Sarek, the father of the U.S.S. Enterprise’s famous Vulcan science officer, Mr. Spock.

According to EW, Sarek will be played by character actor James Frain, known best for his roles in television series like Orphan Black, Gotham, True Blood, and True Detective. There’s no word yet on how Sarek will factor into Star Trek: Discovery, though he’s cited as having a “key role.” We know that he’s not a member of Starfleet, instead acting as the Vulcan ambassador to the United Federation of Planets, so perhaps the Discovery crew spends some extensive time dealing with the famous alien species. The role of Sarek has been played previously by three actors: Mark Lenard, Jonathan Simpson, and Ben Cross.
