Obviously Matt Damon himself isn’t Chinese, and by now we understand that trans-racial stage makeup is horrible. But where does his character fit into the history of China? Maybe the character is Chinese. Maybe the character is a “wandering stranger” archetype. Maybe this a movie about flying demons attacking the Great of Wall of China, and it won’t bother explaining why this older white man stopped by to fight stuff.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of Hollywood movies about soldiers and war. Of those, an high percentage are about World War II. However, Hacksaw Ridge looks to be a very different kind of movie from others in the genre. The new film by Mel Gibson isn’t about a great soldier who killed a bunch of Nazis. It’s about a doctor who never touched a gun, and still saved dozens of his fellow countrymen.

Matt Damon may have put his mouth where his money is in his new film. The actor has revealed in an interview with The Guardian that he only has about 25 lines of dialogue in the finished “Jason Bourne.” That has led to speculation that with Damon’s past paydays he may have earned about $1 million per line for the latest in the “Bourne” franchise.

Thanks to movies like Neighbors or 22 Jump Street, frat stars have had some more sympathetic portrayals on the big screen compared to what really happens behind some frat doors. Goat, a Sundance film starring Nick Jonas, seeks to destroy all that sympathy. The film takes a hard look at fraternity hazing culture, and the mental effects it can have on those rushing.
