Movie Review: THE NICE GUYS

THE NICE GUYS movie poster | ©2016 Warner Bros.

Rating: R Stars: Russell Crowe, Ryan Gosling, Angourie Rice, Matt Bomer, Margaret Qualley, Yaya DaCosta, Keith David, Beau Knapp, Lois Smith, Kim Basinger Writers: Shane Black & Anthony Bagarozzi Director: Shane Black Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: May 20, 2016 At first, a comparison between the new release THE NICE GUYS and the 1974 classic CHINATOWN may seem incongruous. The older film, after all, is an Oscar-winning drama, while THE NICE GUYS is solidly within the tradition of its director/co-writer Shane Black’s trademark action/buddy comedies. But hang on – both are period pieces (CHINATOWN is set in 1937, GUYS in […]Read On »

Movie Review: MONEY MONSTER

MONEY MONSTER | © 2016 Sony/Tristar

Rating: R Stars: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Jack O’Connell, Dominic West, Caitriona Balfe, Giancarlo Esposito, Christopher Denham, Lenny Venito, Emily Meade Writers: Jamie Linden and Alan DiFiore & Jim Kouf, story by DiFiore & Kouf Director: Jodie Foster Distributor: Release Date: May 13, 2016 MONEY MONSTER is almost always entertaining, even when it gets predictable, improbable, or some combination of the two. As movies about the workings of Wall Street go, it has the misfortune to be following THE BIG SHORT while that film – last year’s Oscar winner for Adapted Screenplay – is still in people’s memories. MONEY MONSTER […]Read On »

DVD Review: THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D

THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D | © 2016 RLJ Entertainment

Cast: Kane Hodder, Juan Riedinger, Al Snow, Megan Hensley, Aaron Massey, Kristina Page, Jessica Sonneborn Writer: Jessica Sonneborn Director: Jessica Sonneborn Distributor: RLJ Entertainment If you are expecting one of those exorcism flicks where a poor woman gets possessed by a demon and turns her head and vomits all over her loved ones and floats in the air, this ain’t it. Instead THE HAUNTING OF ALICE D should have been called THE HAUNTING BY ALICE D, because the Alice in question terrorizes a group of friends and their hired help (read hookers) in an old mansion that used to be […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: THE ZERO BOYS

THE ZERO BOYS | © 2016 Arrow Video

Cast: Daniel Hirsch, Kelli Maroney, Nicole Rio, Tom Shell, Jared Moses, Crystal Carson Writers: Robert Gilliam, Nico Mastorakis Director: Nico Mastorakis Distributor: Arrow Video THE ZERO BOYS is so 80s it hurts. Filled with numerous clichés that filled the decade, the film takes them all and packs them into an action thriller. From the big hair, to the horrendous treatment of women as objects, to the loud synthesized music and bad outdated references, it is a time capsule for the decade in a variety of ways. The film focuses on a group of paintball zeroes that worked hard and became […]Read On »

VoD Review: THE HORDE

THE HORDE | © 2016 Gravitas Ventures

  Cast: Paul Logan, Matthew Willig, Bill Moseley, Costas Mandylor, Vernon Wells, Nestor Serrano Writer: Paul Logan Director: Jared Cohn Distributor: Gravitas Ventures If the genre of torture porn has gone away in the realm of horror, someone forgot to tell the makers of THE HORDE. This isn’t a knock against the genre or the film itself. I enjoy a good torture porn horror flick as much as the next guy. If you are unfamiliar with the term, it loosely describes a horror film that features a good number of scenes of people getting brutally tortured with use of objects […]Read On »

Blu-ray Review: NORM OF THE NORTH

NORM OF THE NORTH | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

  Outside of Disney, animated films are either hit or miss when it comes delivering something you as a parent can feel good about letting your children watch. While NORM OF THE NORTH isn’t necessarily a bad movie for kids. The number of pee and fart jokes that are contained within leave a lot to be desired when it comes to letting kids watch what you hope will be a decent animated flick. The story centers on Norm, a polar bear, who learns that humans are moving into his home in the vastness of the Arctic. He doesn’t really think […]Read On »
