This Means War depends on audiences buying into a rather predictable premise of two CIA agents falling for the same woman. Ten years later, the film has its moments. Not many, of course, but they are there and you can’t help but laugh. Of course, the situation is too far-fetched and preposterous in and of itself! The minute that both FDR Foster (Chris Pine) and Tuck Hansen (Tom Hardy) learn they are both dating Lauren…"This Means War: Rom-Com Marks 10 Years in 2022"
The million dollar question heading into the release is who will be replacing Daniel Craig after No Time to Die in the role of James Bond. While I believe that actors like Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston, or Henry Cavill would do a good job in the role, there’s a question of if they are too old for the role. With Cavill, he put his foot in his mouth a few years ago when it came…"James Bond 007: Who Will Replace Daniel Craig?"
Warrior marks the tenth anniversary of its theatrical release and in a perfect world, this film should have garnered many Oscar nominations. U.S. Marine Tommy Riordan Conlon (Tom Hardy) starts training for a mixed martial arts tournament shortly after reuniting with his father, Paddy (Nick Nolte). Paddy wasn’t the best father when Tommy was growing up. He was both a drunk and abusive. While he’s training Tommy, his other son, Brendan (Joel Edgerton), has turned…"Warrior Is Still An Underappreciated Masterpiece"
Christopher Nolan’s Inception, the Oscar-winning sci-fi heist film about dreams, marks its tenth anniversary since its theatrical release in 2010. When most people think of extraction, it’s usually sending in covert agents to get someone out. This isn’t so much the case with this film. Not even by a long shot. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) has a particular set of skills that make him a dangerous person. Granted, this also depends on who you are…"Inception: Nolan Film Marks Its 10th Anniversary"
The Dark Knight Rises manages to bring Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy to an end with a thrilling and stellar conclusion. The closing chapter certainly changes up the pace after the first two films delivered a strong focus on organize crime. Gone are the Falcone and Maroni crime families. The terrorizing Bane (Tom Hardy) steps into replace them eight years after Harvey Dent’s death. Thanks to the Dent Act, many criminals are behind bars. Oh, does…"The Dark Knight Rises: A Stellar Conclusion"
Venom has long been considered to be a villain in Spider-Man canon and this is why Venom doesn’t quite work as a stand-alone film. There are various aspects of the film that stay true to the comics. There are other aspects where the film does its own thing. True to fashion, Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) was run out of the Daily Globe in New York. There’s no reference in the film to Peter Parker or Spider-Man…"Stand-alone Venom doesn’t work"
The evacuation of Dunkirk is one that has had a huge impact on the British. If not for the evacuation, there’s no guarantee what would have happened if not for Operation Dynamo. It’s far more than just a British story. “It was a massive event that still has international significance, says Joshua Levine, author of Forgotten Voices of Dunkirk, and a historical consultant on the film. “Everything that’s celebrated about World War II—in Britain, in…"The Impact of Dunkirk on the British"
Based on an inspiring true story, Dunkirk delivers a film that should give Christopher Nolan a long-overdue Oscar nomination for outstanding directing. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan, the war film stars Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, and Tom Hardy. Nolan veteran Michael Caine sneaks in with an uncredited voice cameo talking to Tom Hardy’s Royal Air Force…"Dunkirk: An Event Film That Should Be Seen In 70mm"
