Oh, to lead Dolph Lundgren's life! In the opening scenes of "In the Name of the King 2: Two Worlds," his Granger character teaches a
martial-arts class, goes home, drinks, sniffles, whistles, draws a bath
and punches and/or kicks knife-wielding, hooded-robed intruders.

Japan anime “Redline” imagines a future where racing isn’t such a big
deal in the sports world any more, with the clear exception of the
titular race, an anything-goes event held every five years.
Comedy Rod Lott
No scientific studies exist as of yet, but I believe "Tucker and Dale vs
Evil" has both the best and worst trailer of this century — best
because it accurately portrays the comedy as genuinely clever and funny,
worst because it gives away so many spoilers.
One of cinema’s most beloved franchises — James Bond, agent 007 — celebrates 50 years of silver-screen spyin’ with “Bond 50,” a collectible box set of “all” 22 films on Blu-ray, from 1962’s “Dr. No” to 2008’s “Quantum of Solace.”
I say “all,” because it does not include 1983’s “Never Say Never Again” or 1967’s comedic “Casino Royale,” neither of which are considered part of the official 007 canon.
Quibbling aside, what action-loving cinephile wouldn’t want to get his/her hands on that set? Although it has no official release date as of yet, it is up for pre-order. It’s safe to say “Bond 50” will hit shelves sometime around the time “Skyfall” lands in theaters, Nov. 9, with Daniel Craig making his third go-round as Bond ... James Bond. (For my money, Bond has never been better than Craig’s first outing, in 2006’s “Casino Royale.”)
The 23-disc set includes more than 130 hours of bonus features, some of which are never before seen. An extra disc is filled with brand-new content, not yet revealed. —Rod Lott

When Román (Facundo Espinosa, "The Motorcycle Diaries") tracks down his
girlfriend to the apartment building of the guy she's been seeing behind
his back, he isn't quite prepared for what he finds: two old guys
menacing several young women with nitroglycerin, acid and other
ridiculously volatile chemicals left over from a real-life 1975 uprising

In 1987, two young men new to San Francisco found an affordable-enough
apartment painted Pepto-Bismol pink. It was their next-door neighbors
who would have them seeing red ... and later green.
