Movie Review: 'Safe' (Video)

4/27/2012 2:12pm EDT
First off, I must say that there are some actors that I just enjoy watching ­- doesn't really matter all that much what they do up on the silver screen, I just like them - and Jason Statham is one of them.

Is he a great actor? That's yet to be determined, but he's definitely an entertaining one.

In his new film 'Safe' written and directed by Boaz Yakin ('Remember the Titans') Statham is at the top of his game.

He plays Luke Wright, an ex super cop, ex cage fighter, who's at the lowest point in his life. Luke's wife has been murdered by the Russian mob and he is one step away from jumping...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: Thanksgiving Table Serves As Love's Chopping Block

Gossip Girl
This week's episode of Gossip Girl felt more like a Valentine's Day Massacre, rather than Thanksgiving dinner. Cupid's arrows were flying every which direction, ensuring that trouble was cooking alongside the turkey.

First up on love's chopping block - Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford). Nate hinted in the last episode that he'd been harboring feelings for Serena (Blake Lively) for the past three years. He's been doing a pretty damn good job of hiding those feelings, considering in the meantime he's been with Blair (Leighton Meester), Vanessa (Jessica Szohr), Jenny (Taylor Momsen), and who ...

'Gossip Girl' Recap: O Brother, Where Bart Thou?

Well, it wasn't a big surprise to learn in the first 30 seconds of this week's Gossip Girl that Bart Bass (Robert John Burke) had died in a terrible accident. He did have some last words, left in a voicemail to Lily (Kelly Rutherford). He knew about her time spent in a hospital in France. What did she do? That's a secret Bart took to his grave; fortunately, his private investigator made it through the crash (I'm assuming he was in the accident too, he was indeed last seen with Bart in the car) and lived to sell the information to the highest bidder.

But, for once, the Upper East Siders...

Mr. Bass Gets Into An Accident On 'Gossip Girl'

A few weeks have passed, but nothing from the Gossip Girl Thanksgiving has remained in the past. Lily (Kelly Rutherford) and Bart (Robert John Burke) aren't speaking after discovering secret files. Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) and Jenny (Taylor Momsen) are still acting awkward because of Nate (Chace Crawford). And apparently, newcomer Aaron Rose (John Patrick Amedori) is still monogamous with the one and only Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively).

But Aaron, being the brooding artist that he, is doesn't want to attend the prep school's Snowflake Charity Ball with Serena. Dan (Penn Badgley) ...

It's (supposedly) Thanksgiving on the Upper East Side in this weeks Gossip Girl, meaning its time to open up each family's respective can of worms. How delicious!

Blair (Leighton Meester) wants her picture-perfect family Thanksgiving filled with all her favorite traditions. Instead, she has to settle for her mother (Margaret Colin) and new live-in boyfriend Cyrus (Wallace Shawn) and all his standing traditions. Once the maid, Dorota (Zuzanna Szadkowski) reveals to Blair that Eleanor and Cyrus are getting married, Blair flips out and decides to miraculously disappear and feed the ducks,...

Two words - Jenny Humphrey. Gossip Girl's leading lady of the night was definitely Jenny (Taylor Momsen). She spent all her time, money and effort into creating her own clothing line, J Humphrey Designs. With the help of model Agnes (Willa Holland) and her in-the-know friends Jenny had the gusto to throw a guerrilla fashion show in the middle of a ceremony honoring Bart (Robert John Burke) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford) Bass for their contributions to the New York Philanthropic Society.

All the glory didn't come easily for Jenny. She'd been dealing with drama ever since she decided to lea...

It's finally time for the Bass' and van der Woodsen clan to make a formal appearance as a family for all Manhattan to see. Bart (Robert John Burke) has returned from his ever-extended business trip and this means new rules and guidelines that include no going out on school nights and curfews. What's a gossip girl to do with such imposing restrictions? Defy them, of course! Chuck (Ed Westwick) teases Serena (Blake Lively) for staying in and reading a book while he goes to make a "house call."

This "house" being called upon ends up being none other than Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester)...
