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 »

Movie Review: THE LAZARUS EFFECT

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 »

Blu-ray/DVD Review: FEAR CLINIC

FEAR CLINIC | © 2015 Anchor Bay Home Entertainment

Rating: R Stars: Robert Englund, Fiona Dourif, Angelina Armani, Thomas Dekker, Corey Taylor Writers: Aaron Drane and Robert G. Hall, based on the FEARnet.com series Director: Robert G. Hall Distributor: Anchor Bay Entertainment Release Date: Feb. 10, 2015 FEAR CLINIC, the new film from the estimable director/writer Robert G. Hall (LIGHTNING BUG, LAID TO REST) has a lot to recommend it. Written by Hall and Aaron Drane, it is legitimately creepy, has a good premise, trippy special effects and – no small prize in the low-budget horror genre – characters whose behavior makes sense in context. Based on the five-episode …Read On »

WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD, set and shot primarily in the Australian bush, is a perfectly good mixture of gore, drama, humor and a couple of new ideas to make the plot spin in some novel directions. As scholars of Biblical lore – and a lot of horror fans – know, Wyrmwood is …Read On »

Jackson, Mark Strong, Sofia Boutella, Sophie Cookson, Michael Caine Writers: Jane Goldman & Matthew Vaughn, based on the comic book THE SECRET SERVICE by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons Director: Matthew Vaughn Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: February 13, 2015 It’s hard to know how to quantify KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE.
