Official Trailer for Action Film 'I Am Vengeance' Starring Stu Bennett

"You best stop shooting your mouth off, now – or you're a dead man!" Saban Films + Lionsgate have just released an official trailer for another one of these low budget, super cheesy, totally awful-looking action films. This one is titled I Am Vengeance, a variation on the original Vengeance title for UK release. I Am Vengeance stars former WWE wrestler Stu Bennett (who wrestled under the name Wade "King" Barrett) as an ex-Special Forces soldier turned professional mercenary, who goes to a small town to investigate the murder of a friend and his parents. The film's cast includes Keith Allen, Gary Daniels, Anna Shaffer, Bryan Larkin, Sean Blowers, Sapphire Elia, Mark Griffin, and Wayne Gordon. I'm so, so tired of these films, only about guns and muscles and bravado and being men and honor and glory and all that crap.

Contemporary Chinese Cinema: A Blander Tomorrow

  • MUBI
Contemporary Chinese Cinema is a column devoted to exploring contemporary Chinese-language cinema primarily as it is revealed to us at North American multiplexes.Ding Sheng’s remake of John Woo’s classic A Better Tomorrow (1986) encapsulates much that’s wrong with contemporary mainstream cinema, both in China and abroad. Ding, most known for directing moderately successful latter-day Jackie Chan vehicles like Railroad Tigers, Little Big Solider, and Policy Story 2013, is a competent director of action who seems to feel deeply bored by anything that doesn’t have an explosion of some type, and so he cuts aimlessly and pointlessly through expository dialogue and ostensibly character-building scenes, a remedial Michael Bay without any of the panache. The remake hews closely to the plot of the original film: a pair of gangster “brothers,” Triad counterfeiters in the first film, now Mainland smugglers, are betrayed on a mission in a foreign territory (first Taiwan,

‘Vengeance’ Board Game Review

  • Nerdly
In Vengeance, the latest game from Mighty Boards and the mind of Gordon Calleja, up to four players recreate the same kind of blood-soaked revenge sequences that we’re more used to seeing in movies like Kill Bill and Death Wish. With card and dice drafting plus a unique take on miniatures combat, Vengeance presents a complex setup at first, but the memories of stacking decks and placing dens soon gives way to fast, crowd pleasing combat and a satisfying variety of options.

I speak often about how important it is to link the theme of a game with its mechanical components. The longer and/or heavier in weight a game is, the more I believe that to be true. Where Vengeance is concerned, the link between game phases (beginning The Wronging and then alternating between Montage and Fight scenes) could not have been handled better.

In The Wronging phase,

The bleak, grimy brilliance of the Kent coast: why The Tunnel was TV gold

A heart-tugging plot and dazzling central performances made Sky’s reworking of Scandi noir The Bridge an unmissable triumph

Rare is the remodelling of an acclaimed and popular TV series that surpasses the original. The Us version of Broadchurch – retitled Gracepoint – lasted just one season, despite importing David Tennant to reprise his role as the detective, albeit with a new accent.

Once in a while, though, something special comes along. I’ll admit that I first watched Sky Atlantic’s The Tunnel more out of indolence than anything else. I’d already seen The Bridge, the Swedish-Danish co-production it reconfigured; I was tired, and watching something in which I already knew what happened was about as much effort as I could be bothered to make. But The Tunnel surpassed low expectations by far. In fact, I’d say it’s significantly better than The Bridge, and, given the risible third season of The Bridge,

Not All Sequels Suck

Helen Murdoch with ten sequels that are actually decent…

2016 has been hit and miss for sequels and reboots. So far we’ve had the dull Independence Day: Resurgence, the reboot of Ghostbusters, as well as the forgettable Now You See Me 2 and Bad Neighbours 2. Sitting through the latest Alice in Wonderland film was physically painful and a complete misfire. Whilst it seems that we’re dying for more original material, I thought it was worth reminding everyone that not all sequels are bad. In face some can argue that some sequels are better than the originals.

For the sake of this list and to keep it to a top 10, I’ve excluded the superhero genre so no Marvel or DC love here. I’ve also taken out planned adaptations i.e. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Jason Bourne.
