It might surprise you, but Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wasn’t always the most bankable action star in the world. There was a time when the pro-wrestler-turned-actor was trying to stay afloat doing sequels to bad franchises and playing the lead in straight-to-DVD movies. Looking at Johnson’s filmography over the last 17 years is a testament to his hard work to elevate from playing the tough guy, and being known mainly for his WWE persona, into a worldwide movie star. Leading up to Johnson’s latest blockbuster, “Skyscraper” (opening Friday), we look back on all his movies (even the ones where he makes cameos) and rank them from worst to best. 37. “Jem and the Holograms” (2015) Yes, The Rock is in “Jem and the Holograms.” The disastrous movie has a scene where big names like Chris Pratt and Alicia Keys say how much they love the band and Johnson is among them. Either he was doing this as a favour or someone involved with the … [Read more...] about All 37 Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson movies, ranked from worst to best

It has been 11 years since the last film of Steven Soderbergh's "Ocean's" trilogy, which started with "Ocean's Eleven" (2000), then "Ocean's 12" (2004), and "Ocean's Thirteen" (2007). The series featured superstars George Clooney, Matt Damon, and Brad Pitt, and set a pretty high bar for classy heist movies. This year, maybe in tune with the recent trend for female empowerment, a spin-off with an all-female cast was released to perhaps revive the trend set by its predecessor. Danny Ocean's sister Debbie (Sandra Bullock) was just released from incarceration for a major case of fraud. Still a natural con-woman to her core, she had been planning a big heist in her head all those five years she spent in jail. So the moment Debbie was out, she got together with her old girlfriend and partner in crime, Lou (Cate Blanchett), to set her major big-time plan in full motion. She got her team together: fashion designer Rose Weil (Helena Bonham-Carter), jeweler Amita (Mindy … [Read more...] about Movie review: All-female ‘Ocean’s 8’ is delightfully fun

There is perhaps no bigger comic book-inspired cinematic enigma than Sony's "Venom" movie, which will arrive in theaters this October.After a seemingly pointless teaser trailer release in February that had plenty of star Tom Hardy, but absolutely no Venom, the grumbling began as to whether Sony, which needed Marvel Studios to save Spider-Man on film, could be trusted to spin-off a new Marvel movie franchise by itself.That first teaser likely served as a gentle reminder to the comic book movie faithful that yes, this movie is actually being made. For the first full trailer, which debuted in late April, Sony was going to have to bring it with a Venom money shot.And it delivered.It took until the final moments of the trailer, but there was Hardy, rising from the ground, in black, symbiotic ooze with creepy all-white eyes, instantly going from prey to predator.There he is. Venom. One of Spider-Man's most popular villains, brought to life by the '90s comic book artwork of artists such as … [Read more...] about Now that we’ve seen Tom Hardy’s Venom, do we want to see the movie more or less?
