Marvin Harrison is six feet tall and 185 pounds. He has a neatly trimmed mustache and the body-fat content of an Olympic swimmer. He became the dominant wide receiver of his era not by outleaping or outwrestling defenders but by exploiting an almost supernatural talent for getting open: for feints, fakes, jukes, dodges, bluffs, stutter steps, sudden bursts of sick speed. But at this moment, Nixon says, Marvin Harrison did not run. He stood on the sidewalk and calmly raised his wiry arms. In each hand, Nixon clearly saw, was a gun. … [Read more...] about Remember When Marvin Harrison Was Implicated In A Shootout?

It's still unclear if Ridley Scott will direct the new Blade Runner movie, but it's looking increasingly likely that he won't. The script is ready and we'll just have to wait and see how this all shakes out. Scott understands the importance of Blade Runner to so many people, so hopefully there will be no major hiccups along the way. … [Read more...] about Harrison Ford Says
There are times when Lee’s script betrays its theatrical roots, occasionally drifting into thematically load-bearing speeches (“America put you in a box”), even when Luce isn’t literally delivering speeches. But director Julius Onah, bouncing back from the muddy sci-fi hodgepodge of his Netflix Cloverfield sequel, opens up the material, too, giving it an urgent cinematic pulse. (The music, by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury, helps in this department, its rhythmic mixture of grunts and clangs and strange instrumentation providing an undercurrent of tension, even menace.)

Toward … [Read more...] about Kelvin Harrison Jr. delivers one of the great performances of the year in the gripping
No horror movie this year offered a hit of unease as quick and pure as what Kelvin Harrison Jr. provokes with a simple facial expression in Luce. The moment, brief enough to miss with a blink, arrives toward the end of Julius Onah’s prickly, Sundance-approved psychodrama. Harrison, the film’s 25-year-old star, plays the title character, a former child soldier from the Congo who’s become a model American high school student in the years since being whisked off to suburban Virginia by his adopted parents. In the scene in question, Luce is speaking with uncommon candor to his mother (Naomi Watts) when he suddenly offers her a quick peek behind the veil of his ingratiating politeness, demonstrating—with a flash of feigned excitement—the extent to which he can toggle his emotions on and off. It’s chilling, yes, but also deeply sad: an acknowledgment of the extent to which this young man has shaped his own personality to meet and challenge the expectations … [Read more...] about Kelvin Harrison Jr. on
Cut to contemporary cinema’s other favorite color, and a mystery man in a trench coat wandering a dusty wasteland in search of…something. That man turns out to be Ryan Gosling’s Officer K, and that thing turns out to be Deckard himself, hiding out in a palatial mansion in the middle of the orange desert. Is it a dream? Are they on another planet? Is that just what Nevada looks like 33 years in the future? Most (but not all) will be revealed when Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on October 6, 2017. … [Read more...] about Ryan Gosling dreams of Harrison Ford in the
