Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman go head to head in this tense thriller. This film is sorta removed from the idea of Nuclear War on US soil as it takes place on a nuclear sub. However, if our heroes are unable to work out their differences it will be catastrophic for ALL. Crimson Tide tells the story of two very different men. Denzel Washington plays Hunter and Gene Hackman plays Ramsey. Ramsey is a hard scrabble sort of man who has seen it all. Hunter is younger, more refined, and doesn't have the experience in combat that Ramsey does. As you can guess this causes problems when the two men feel that they have gotten different directives from the powers on high. What ensues is a mutiny by Hunter and then a counter-mutiny from those that are loyal to Ramsey. The fact that nuclear weapons are involved only heightens the tensions, so maybe that is the takeaway here? With great power, comes great responsibility, and those in power need to be equipped to handle it. … [Read more...] about 12 Movies to Prepare You for Nuclear War with North Korea

Idris Elba himself revealed during a Reddit AMA that he would "absolutely" play James Bond, if he was ever offered the role, but this is the first we're hearing about Sony executives expressing their interest in the actor. The current 007, Daniel Craig, is currently under contract for one more Bond movie after Spectre, which started shooting earlier this month and is set for release in November 2015. It isn't known if the actor will sign on for more James Bond movies after his contract is up, but he revealed in a 2012 Rolling Stone interview that he has been, "trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it." However, that interview was conducted before Skyfall became the biggest Bond movie of all time, taking in over $1.1 billion worldwide. … [Read more...] about Idris Elba Wanted as the Next James Bond?
Along with the rumors that Craig has turned down a ton of money with conflicting reports that the actor has yet to make a decision firmly one way or the other, a frontrunner to take over for him has emerged and spoiler alert, it is not Anderson, or any X-Files star for that matter. Last week, bookies were actually forced to stop taking bets on Thor star Tom Hiddleston because the odds tilted so far in his favor that it appears to many he essentially already had the role if Craig doesn't come back. One Irish bookie had even said that he wouldn't be surprised if an announcement were made any day now and Hiddleston himself has publicly stated that he would happily take on the mantle of 007. … [Read more...] about Gillian Anderson Thinks She Could Be the Next James Bond
The second message, which claims to be from the G.O.P., states that The Interview may now be released, only if the studio cuts Kim Jong-Un's death scene, which had leaked online yesterday. It isn't known if this contradicting message is actually from the G.O.P. or just an impostor, but you can take a look at the statement below, which once again warns of a 9/11 attack, similar to the message that spawned The Interview's cancellation. … [Read more...] about Sony Hackers Demand The Interview Never Be Released
