Gerard Butler—who is basically Jason Statham without the charm, or Chuck Norris with a Scottish accent—makes a certain kind movie. His movies are dependably bad, his performances are reliably wooden, he never has chemistry with anyone on screen. His movies always feature some combination of the following: Gerard Butler is THE BEST! Disdain for science/nerds/higher education Pro-military Gerard Butler doesn’t take orders, HE GIVES THEM Borderline homoeroticism You can set clocks by the Gerard Butler Checklist, his formula is so reliable Full Story

Keanu Reeves is hailed for launching an original action franchise, and rightly so, because in the age of Big IP, that is nearly impossible. But he is not the only actor to front an original action franchise—Gerard Butler has his own original action franchise in the “Fallen” series. You know the ones, where he is the super double extra special very best Secret Service agent that has ever lived. Full Story

Before a screening of Gerard Butler’s new submarine thriller, Hunter Killer, I tried to guess which Gerard Butler clichés would make an appearance. I made the following guesses: •    Gerard Butler will have an opportunity to kill someone but will not, proving his superior morality •    Everyone will love and admire Gerard Butler •    Gerard Butler will be good at everything •    The commanding officer will be specifically noted as highly educated but will be ineffectual when the sh-t hits the fan •    Gerard Butler will have to depose his commanding officer •    Male bonding will be emphasized to the point of homoeroticism And here is how I did: •    The first time we see Gerard Butler, he is hunting deer in Scotland—with a bow and arrow because guns aren’t manly enough. Full Story

Geostorm looks gloriously dumb

Sometimes a trailer comes along and lights up your life with how gloriously f*cking dumb the movie looks, and today that trailer is Geostorm, a movie in which Gerard Butler saves us from the weather. In the grand tradition of Twister, Volcano, Dante’s Peak, 2012, The Day After Tomorrow—all movies I love, by the way—Geostorm is a nonsense movie about nonsense science that leads to the weather trying to destroy us all. Full Story

Gerard Butler in London Has Fallen

London Has Fallen is a movie in which the leaders of several sovereign nations are explicitly and violently assassinated on camera. Then half the city of London is blown up—particularly, all the “known landmarks”, as opposed to all those unknown ones—and then we spend two hours watching as everyone in the movie is varying degrees of incompetent except for Gerard Butler. Full Story

In general I found the presenter choices kind of frustrating last night. Sure, you can’t stack the deck only with actors from the nominated material, but I wouldn’t have minded seeing, say, Patrick Wilson in slightly-less-scripted action. Or Joshua Jackson. Even give me Heidi Klum up there making things happen, please. Full Story

Gods of an Egypt that is very, very white

Two years after Ridley Scott and Exodus got dragged behind the outrage truck for whitewashing ancient Egypt by casting predominately white actors to play Egyptian characters, director Alex Proyas is courting the same controversy with Gods of Egypt, a movie also set in ancient Egypt and starring a bunch of white people. Full Story
