Movie/VoD Review: AVENGED

AVENGED | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Cast: Amanda Adrienne, Tom Ardavany, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Brionne Davis, Ed Fletcher, Jason Gurvitz Writer: Michael S. Ojeda Director: Michael S. Ojeda Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Rating: Not Rated AVENGED is like a supernatural I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, if that film has a deaf woman that actually dies and begins to rot on her way to killing the men that did her wrong. Oh and if they added a contrived romance plotline that never really takes off during the course of the movie. Zoe (Amanda Adrienne), a deaf girl with a boyfriend that lives far away, decides to go visit …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Ali Milner, Barbara Kottmeier, Jeremy Thorsen Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 10, 2015 Even on SUPERNATURAL, there have to be some episodes that are just so-so. Not great, not awful, not crazy, just the show doing what it does when nobody is feeling particularly inspired that week, though everyone is still perfectly competent. “Halt & Catch Fire” (not to be confused with the brilliant-every-episode AMC series of that title) is such an episode. Sam (Jared …Read On »

Movie Review: FOCUS

FOCUS | © 2015 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro, Adrian Martinez, Gerald McRaney, Brennan Brown, BD Wong Writers: Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Directors: Glenn Ficarra & John Requa Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: February 27, 2015 FOCUS begins in a way that primes us to expect one sort of movie, only to deliver another. Given that bait and switch and general con artistry is the business of its protagonist Nicky (Will Smith), this isn’t inappropriate, but it’s still somewhere between a little disconcerting and really disappointing, depending on how much one values certain elements. There are plenty of plot …Read On »

THE LAZARUS EFFECT | © 2015 Relativity Media

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Mark Duplass, Olivia Wilde, Donald Glover, Evan Peters, Sarah Bolger Writers: Luke Dawson and Jeremy Slater Director: David Gelb Distributor: Relativity Media Release Date: February 27, 2015 Don’t let the PG-13 rating scare you away. THE LAZARUS EFFECT is a perfectly good horror movie, and if its various ideas all have their roots elsewhere, the filmmakers have brought them all together in a way that feels fresh and eerie. At a college-funded lab in Berkeley, a small team of youngish scientists works on covert experiments that have the ultimate goal of making it easier for paramedics to …Read On »

DVD/Digital Release Review: THE INTRUDERS

THE INTRUDERS | © 2015 Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Miranda Cosgrove, Donal Logue, Austin Butler, Tom Sizemore, Jenessa Grant, Michael Luckett Writer: Jason Juravic Director: Adam Massey Distributor: Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Release Date: February 24, 2015 The new release THE INTRUDERS, not to be confused with either 2012’s feature INTRUDERS or 2014’s BBC series INTRUDERS, is a fairly generic PG-13 thriller. It’s not a worst-case scenario of the form, by any means, but it steadfastly fails to gain traction as it goes along. College student Rose Halshford (Miranda Cosgrove), on a leave of absence from study, is moved by her architect father Jerry (Donal Logue) …Read On »
