LIFE movie poster | © 2017 Sony Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare, Hiroyuki Sanada Writers: Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick Director: Daniel Espinosa Distributor: Columbia/Sony Release Date: March 24, 2017 The new movie LIFE has a very obvious ancestor. That would be 1979’s ALIEN. There is no shame in following in that movie’s viscera trail (this reviewer challenges anyone to come up with an exact accurate number of how many have tried), so long as it’s done well. LIFE indeed is done pretty well, though it’s got a couple of confusing action sequences and, surprisingly, no jump scares. Director […]Read On »

HUMANS has its two-hour Season 2 finale on AMC on Monday, March 20. The drama deals with a near future in which Synths, human-looking androids, work for humans in almost every aspect of life.

In the first season, Mia started out with her “self” turned off, but she […]Read On »

Movie Review: THE BELKO EXPERIMENT

THE BELKO EXPERIMENT | © 2017 Orion

Rating: R Stars: John Gallagher, Tony Goldwyn, Adria Arjona, John C. McGinley, Michael Rooker, Melonie Diaz, James Earl Writer: James Gunn Director: Greg McLean Distributor: Orion Release Date: March 17, 2017 THE BELKO EXPERIMENT has a title that’s reminiscent of THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT. This may not be a coincidence, as THE BELKO EXPERIMENT plays like THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT if the latter tried steroids, then bypassed them and went straight to hemorrhagic fever. For those unfamiliar with it, 2015’s THE STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT, based on Dr. Philip Zimbardo’s book THE LUCIFER EFFECT, chronicles a real-life event that was supposed […]Read On »
