Alex Cross Matthew Fox

If you needed further proof that making your voice gravely doesn’t make you seem nearly as cool as you think it does, look no further than the trailer for Alex Cross. Tyler Perry – like Karl Urban’s constipated Eastwood in Dredd and Christian “Where are the Drugs?” Bale – forces out a low guttural that makes him sound like he’s doing a hard math problem in his head while recovering from a cold. Of course, it doesn’t help that he seems to be sleepwalking. Fortunately, Matthew Fox looks like he’s gone full-on insane to play a vicious serial killer obsessed with causing pain. Based on the James Patterson novel “Cross,” the trailer shows a bit of promise, but Perry is going to be a hard pill to swallow. Check it out for yourself:


Rookie Blue Season One

Not every week can be a winner when it comes to DVD purchases, but that’s a good thing right? Gives us time to save more cash for the releases that truly matter… like the upcoming Warner Archive release of The Herculoids: The Complete Series. Hell yes. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to watch this week. As is often the case there are plenty of titles worth renting and avoiding, and they run the gamut from old to new, big to small, good to bad. The highest profile title is probably Nicolas Cage’s Drive Angry, and by “high profile” I of course mean it stars recognizable faces and not that it made any money at the box office. Other releases this week include True Blood‘s third season, Brian Austin Green’s sad attempt at a comic book movie (Cross), Javier Bardem’s Oscar-nominated Biutiful, the Megan Fox/Mickey Rourke (apparent) train wreck Passion Play, and many more. As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. Rookie Blue: The Complete First Season Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym) is a recent police academy graduate just beginning her career as a cop. She’s joined by four other rookie recruits for thirteen episodes of drama, action, and fairly solid character work. Sure McNally sees more gunplay in her first year than most cops see in their entire lifetime, but this is Canada and everything’s exaggerated up there. This first season is lightweight fun, but the actors (both the rookies and their […]



For many people Idris Elba will forever be known as ‘Stringer’ Bell on HBO’s highly acclaimed The Wire. But “many” is a relative term, because millions more know him from his multi-episode guest arc on NBC’s The Office last year. Elba can also be seen in The Losers, The Unborn, and the upcoming Marvel bomb film, Thor. As exciting as all of that is though, the one thing every actor wants is a successful franchise. And now Elba may have just found his… DeadlineMuncie is reporting that Elba has signed on to star in the upcoming film, Cross, based on the bestseller by James Patterson. The character of Alex Cross has been brought to the screen twice before in the excellent Kiss the Girls and the less impressive Along Came a Spider. Morgan Freeman played Cross in both films, but the general consensus seems to be that the man is just too damn old to continue in the role. The new film sees Cross tracking a serial rapist who may have been the one who murdered his pregnant wife years prior. Sounds like a conflict of interest to me, but I’m always down for a good revenge killing. Cross is scheduled to begin production next year. Patterson has written fifteen books featuring Alex Cross, so if audiences like what they see in the new film Elba may never have to sell drugs again. What do you think of Elba as Alex Cross?
