Every Friday we bring our suggestion of a movie, DVD or television series to give a look.
After a drought of new genre films, Hollywood gives us three. Of course, the studios have decided to put two solid female lead films up against each other on the same weekend. This almost certainly guarantees they will cut in to the box office of each other. Unfortunately that means yet another excuse for some executive to say female driven action films don’t sell. The third film, an aerial action film based on the Tuskegee airmen has barely been a blip on the radar despite a great pedigree of talent involved.
Haywire is a great looking action/espionage film starring MMA fighter (and former American Gladiator) Gina Carano in the title role.
White Wolf Publishing fans rejoice! Underworld Awakening is the fourth film in the franchise and marks the return of Kate Beckinsale after the prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
Red Tails is a CGI heavy action film focused on the real life Tuskegee Airmen. Produced by George Lucas, written by John Ridley (Three Kings) and Aaron McGruder (The Boondocks) and directed by Anthony Hemingway (a very talented television director making his major feature film debut), it definitely has the pedigree to be a hit if anyone goes to see it.
