Movie Review: IMPERIUM

IMPERIUM | © 2016 Lionsgate

Rating: R Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Toni Collette, Sam Trammell, Tracy Letts Writer: Daniel Ragussis, story by Michael German Director: Daniel Ragussis Distributor: Lionsgate Premiere Release Date (theatrical and VOD): August 19, 2016 In some ways, IMPERIUM feels like a dramatized version of the monthly newsletter from the Southern Poverty Law Center. This approach has its pros and cons, with the balance tilted toward the positive. Domestic terrorism arguably doesn’t get nearly the attention it should from the news media, and consequently, dramatization of it lags behind as well. We can hope that at least that the real FBI gives domestic […]Read On »

From THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN to THE DIRTY DOZEN, Hollywood scores have rejoiced in teams of bad-asses determined to go out in a blaze of glory. But seldom has a composer done a Holy Hell blow out like Steven Price with SUICIDE SQUAD. Packing together a rogues gallery of wannabe Batman killers into a force of extraordinarily evil magnitude, the Oscar winner of GRAVITY creates an ironically unintended superhero score to kill them all. Taken from Arkham Asylum for their mad skills with weapons, sorcery, mutant powers and sensual psychotic chops, Price brings the hybrid rage of today’s action scoring to the next level, blending […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Weronika Rosati, Grant Harvey, Darren Dolynski Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 17, 2016 It had to happen sometime. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) were bound to realize at some point that their angel friend Castiel (Misha Collins) is actually being occupied by Lucifer. Sooner or later, any show that has time travel has to have a story set on a U.S. Navy submarine during WWII, so SUPERNATURAL Season 11 does that as […]Read On »

Movie Review: JASON BOURNE

JASON BOURNE | © 2016 Universal

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Matt Damon, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Julia Stiles, Riz Ahmed, Ato Essandoh, Scott Shepherd Writers: Paul Greengrass & Christopher Rouse, based on characters created by Robert Ludlum Director: Paul Greengrass Distributor: Universal Release Date: July 29, 2016 JASON BOURNE Director Paul Greengrass can do kinetic action with the best of them – he also helmed the last two Jason Bourne adventures, THE BOURNE SUPREMACY and THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, as well as the riveting UNITED 93. However, Greengrass and co-scripter Christopher Rouse (who also serves as JASON BOURNE’s film editor) have centered the new film […]Read On »

Movie Review: LIGHTS OUT

LIGHTS OUT | © 2016 Warner Bros

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Teresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Maria Bello, Alexander DiPersia, Alicia Vela-Bailey, Andi Osho, Billy Burke Writer: Eric Heiserrer, story by David F. Sandberg Director: David F. Sandberg Distributor: Warner Bros./New Line Cinema Release Date: July 22, 2016 Here’s a nice surprise: LIGHTS OUT, a summer horror movie that has consistent and well-earned scares, a modestly novel premise and good story logic. It’s that relative rarity that doesn’t even suffer from its PG-13 rating – the gore is just enough to be jolting, but not so pervasive that it gets an R or holds up the pacing. In LIGHTS […]Read On »

STAR TREK BEYOND | © 2016 Paramount

Stars: John Cho, Simon Pegg, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, Sofia Boutella, Idris Elba Writers: Simon Pegg & Doug Jung, based on STAR TREK created by Gene Roddenberry Director: Justin Lin Distributor: Paramount Release Date: July 22, 2016 STAR TREK BEYOND is one of those franchise movies that is so completely bound to its specific film universe that it feels kind of like a big, long episode of a TV series. Except it doesn’t feel like a big, long episode of any of the TV iterations of STAR TREK, originally created by Gene Roddenberry, that […]Read On »

Movie Review: EQUALS

EQUALS | © 2016 A24/DirecTV

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Nicholas Hoult, Kristen Stewart, Jacki Weaver, Guy Pearce, David Selby, Bel Powley Writer: Nate Parker, story by Drake Doremus Director: Drake Doremus Distributor: A24/DirecTV Release Date (theatrical, DirecTV): July 15, 2016 In a number of ways, EQUALS resembles quite a few screen adaptations of young adult dystopian science fiction novels. In a future where people are born after having been subjected to neonatal injections designed to inhibit their emotions, Silas (Nicholas Hoult) and Nia (Kristen Stewart) fall in love. So what makes EQUALS different? For starters, it’s not an adaptation, nor is it aimed at the YA […]Read On »
