CONTRABAND director Baltasar Kormákur and star Mark Wahlberg reteam for this all-star thriller centered on the fragile alliance between two operatives from rival bureaus, neither of whom realize that the other is working undercover. For the past year, U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) and DEA agent Bobby Trench (Denzel Washington) have been on a covert mission to infiltrate a powerful narcotics syndicate. In the criminal underworld, trust comes in short supply. Stigman and Trench have been forced to work as partners, but continue to eye one another with an air of suspicion. Both men realize their only hope for survival is to stick together, however, after a sensitive mission involving a Mexican drug cartel goes horribly awry. Their identities compromised as their respective agencies deny any knowledge of their existence, Stigman and Trench must now elude capture by the authorities while using their acute criminal know-how to also strike back at the ruthless gangsters who would sooner see them six-feet underground, rather than rotting away behind bars. Bill Paxton, Edward James Olmos, Paula Patton, and James Marsden co-star.
Reviews
“The saving grace of the film is the chemistry between Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as a pair of undercover lawmen…” (USA Today)

“Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are great company. ” (Rolling Stone)

“Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg make for an enjoyable pair in this fleet, unpretentious caper pic from Baltasar Kormakur.” (Variety)

“[Featuring the] winning chemistry between stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, who animate banter-heavy dialogue and click so well, one wonders why they haven’t shared the screen before.” (Hollywood Reporter)

“[Washington and Wahlberg] cut loose and seem to be having a blast swapping below-the-belt insults as a pair of undercover agents posing as drug dealers.” — Grade: B+ (Entertainment Weekly)

“The two stars are great together as undercover lawmen teamed up against a common foe.” (Chicago Sun-Times)

3 stars out of 4 — “The tone, pacing and staging of the action sequences are pleasantly surprising. This is a slower, more meditative film than advertised, finding time for quirkiness and humorous banter alongside the explosions.” (RogerEbert.com)

3 stars out of 5 — “Kormákur nimbly stages the various shoot-outs, stand-offs and punch-ups and choreographs one enjoyably bold incursion at a Texas air base.” (Total Film)

3 stars out of 5 — “This does a serviceable job homaging ’80s actioners….Go for the explosions…” (Empire)

Director Robert Luketic and screenwriters Jason Dean Hall and Barry Levy team up to adapt author Joseph Finder’s novel centering on a tech-savvy twentysomething who becomes a corporate spy for a scheming businessman. Determined to make the most of his new job at Wyatt Telecom, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is horrified when a felonious mistake earns him the wrath of unforgiving CEO Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman). Typically, Wyatt’s first response would be to throw a lawbreaking employee under the bus. But this time he’s willing to cut a deal: Should Adam agree to infiltrate Wyatt Telecom’s chief rival, the CEO will turn a blind eye to his employee’s error. In no time Adam is climbing the corporate ladder straight to the top. No one suspects a thing, and Wyatt is gaining a distinct advantage over the competition. Later, upon realizing that his success is a mere illusion and he’s become a simple pawn in a much bigger game, Adam hatches an ingenious plan to get out of his situation before it’s too late.
Reviews
“Oldman and Ford do relish their turns at corporate villainy, and Embeth Davidtz as Oldman’s steely associate brings considerable flair to her role.” (Hollywood Reporter)

MAN OF STEEL–”SPECTACULAR sci-fi — huge, operatic, melodramatic, impressive.” (Empire)

Published on November 13, 2013 by in New Releases

bluray, dvd, dvd rentals in northwest arkansas, dvd rentals in nwa, Major Video, movie rentals, northwest Arkansas video store coupons, Northwest Arkansas Video Stores, video stores in Northwest Arkansas, video rental, Springdale ar video store, Fayetteville ar video store,Directed by: Zack Snyder
Starring: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe, Carla Gugino

Superman flies back onto the big screen in this Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production directed by Zack Snyder (WATCHMEN), produced by Christopher Nolan (THE DARK KNIGHT), and featuring a screenplay by David Goyer (BLADE, THE DARK KNIGHT). As the planet of Krypton crumbles, General Zod (Michael Shannon) stages a coup as concerned leader Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and his wife send their infant son Kal-El to a distant world called Earth. While the young child travels through space with an object containing the DNA of his home planet, General Zod and his cohorts are sentenced to an eternity in a black-hole prison. Named Clark and raised by kindly farmers Jonathan (Kevin Costner) and Martha Kent (Diane Lane), young Kal-El lives in fear of what might happen should his neighbors learn about his extraterrestrial origins, eventually exploring the world in search of himself. In time, Clark’s travels take him to a frozen tundra, where the American government has discovered an 18,000-year-old anomaly buried deep in the ice. Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane (Amy Adams) has just come to investigate when, after venturing out with her camera, she has a profound encounter with Clark. Convinced that his presence on Earth is proof of life on other planets, Lois finds her attempt to publish the story thwarted by her boss Perry White (Laurence Fishburne), who rejects it outright. Later, the airwaves are hijacked by General Zod, who threatens to obliterate the human race if they fail to hand over Kal-El within 24 hours. Forced to embrace his otherworldly origins for the first time in his life, Clark Kent dons the special suit from Krypton and prepares to take a stand against an enemy far more powerful than any he’s ever known.

3 stars out of 4 — “Cavill and Adams give the movie a beating heart….There’s no way to stay blind to its wonders.” (Rolling Stone)

4 stars out of 5 — “[T]his is spectacular sci-fi — huge, operatic, melodramatic, impressive.” (Empire)

“[Zimmer] provides the musical grandeur and sense of portent that lends the film an extra dimension.” (Hollywood Reporter)

Starring: Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver, Jeremy Strong

The events surrounding President John F. Kennedy’s assassination are explored from multiple perspectives in this historical drama based on Vincent Bugliosi’s book FOUR DAYS IN NOVEMBER. The moment those shots echoed through the streets of Dallas on November 22, 1963, the entire city erupted into chaos. The leader of the free world was dead, and his security team was scrambling for clues. Film from an amateur had captured the tragedy in vivid detail, but the gunman had slipped through the FBI’s grasp. Meanwhile, the doctors and nurses at Dallas’ Parkland Hospital found themselves in the eye of the storm, and Vice President Lyndon Johnson was thrust into the role of Commander in Chief. In this film, we follow the events of that fateful day from the perspectives of the people who were there to witness one of the most disputed events in history firsthand. Zac Efron, Paul Giamatti, Billy Bob Thornton, Jacki Weaver, and Jeremy Strong star in a film featuring James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Tom Hanks, and Ron Livingston.
