Film marks return to form for M. Night Shyamalan

We all know that Hollywood success can be fickle, but no filmmaker in recent memory has had as up-and-down a career as M. Night Shyamalan.

‘Refueled’ and re-fooled

“The Transporter Refueled” brainless entertainment

If you’re like us, you’re still reeling from the recent news of One Direction’s forthcoming “extended hiatus.” It’s hard to fathom a pop culture landscape without that adorable flock of Brits flitting around – sure, they aren’t really going anywhere, but this is definitely a situation where the sum is much greater than its individual parts.

We’re already seeing some of the obstacles that these guys are bound to encounter if they’re out on their own. Even though they haven’t parted ways, we’re starting to get a sense of how they might act as individuals. The only real surprise is the identity of the one who stumbled first.
