The Raid 2

Star Wars: The Force Awakens already tops many critics most anticipated lists, and with good reason. But the latest news is giving us another reason to be excited for this very highly anticipated film.

If the reports are true, three of the principle actors from The Raid and The Raid 2: Iko Uwais, Yayan Ruhian (who played Mad Dog and Prakoso in the films), and Cecep Arif Rahman (who played “The Assassin” and had a fight scene towards the end of The Raid 2) have roles in the film, and could be involved in a much larger capacity. And if you have seen either of Gareth Evans’ films, that means the action sequences in J.J. Abrams‘ upcoming movie should be awesome. Hit the jump for the full report.

The 10 Best Films Of 2012 So Far…

The 10 best films of 2012 so far...

Hello Geeks, FamousMonster here. So, how many movies have you seen this year? I’ve spent the past couple of hours cataloging every film I’ve seen released in 2012, and the magic number is 60. That’s 60 movies in seven months, which means out of the 228 days of the year so far – I’ve spent five entire days watching new movies.

With four and a half months left in 2012, I think it might be a good time to figure out what my favorite movies of the year are so far. Soon we’ll be transitioning from summer’s popcorn blockbusters to fall’s dramatic, heavy-hitting films vying for Oscars and Golden Globes. There’s been a lot of fantastic films this year, some of which were huge successes with wide releases and record-breaking box office returns, while others were limited-release independent films that deserve your attention.

It’s my hope that this list of ten films balances obvious, geek-approved genre flicks with new, interesting titles that you’ll seek out and enjoy. Of course, there are still plenty of highly-anticipated films on the way – The Master, Lincoln, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and Django Unchained – but until then, this list should keep you busy. OK, enough talking, let’s get on with the show. Without further adieu, here’s my list of the 10 best films of 2012 so far…

RELEASE DATE: August 14, 2012

They just don’t make action movies like they used to…or so it sometimes seems. Every once in a while one comes along that reminds us of that old school high-paced action we love so very much, and one such movie is The Raid: Redemption.

The movie consists of a simple premise: a team of elite cops sets off to an old run down 30-story apartment building to take out a deadly drug lord who runs the building with his men, while also allowing others to rent out rooms, usually to the city’s most dangerous criminals. The raid is supposed to go smoothly, but others have tried before and failed, and when word gets out that the squad is there, pure anarchy ensues. Now the cops are no longer fighting to complete their mission, but to escape the building alive.
