Rating: Not Rated Stars: Samantha Morton, Michael Shannon, Natasha Calis, Charlie Tahan, Leslie Lyles, Peter Fonda, Meadow Williams, Nolan Lyons Writer: Stephen Lancellotti Director: John McNaughton Distributor: IFC Midnight Release Date: New York theatrical and VOD, April 10, 2015; Los Angeles theatrical, April 24, 2015 Too often, thrillers with child/young adult protagonists are either BAD SEED/THE OMEN-esque – nothing wrong with these, except that they tend toward the predictable – or the cleaned-up-to-the-point-of-anemia PG-13 model. THE HARVEST is neither. There are several points where we get a little ahead of where writer Stephen Lancelotti and director John McNaughton are leading …Read On »

Movie Review: UNFRIENDED

UNFRIENDED | © 2015 Universal Studios

Rating: R Stars: Shelley Hennig, Moses Jacob Storm, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Jacob Wysocki, Courtney Halverson, Heather Sossaman Writer: Nelson Greaves Director: Levan Gabriadze Distributor: Universal Release Date: April 17, 2015 There is nothing new about vengeful ghosts, but there is certainly novelty in setting a horror story entirely in a multi-person Skype/Facebook chat, which is the case in UNFRIENDED. Apparently unworried that its users may be too creeped out to continue to use the social media site after seeing the film, Facebook has allowed its features to show up prominently here, as do YouTube, Google and a number of …Read On »

Your time is short. We know this. So in order to expedite your buying and Netflix decision making, we provide you with a list of the cool and not-so-cool titles coming out for movies, television and everything in-between. So put your feet up, grab some popcorn and check out this week’s selections. Movies: A MOST VIOLENT YEAR – For a film that has the word “violent” in the title I was kind of hoping there would be a bit more violence going on. A better name for this film should have been MAN STRUGGLES TO KEEP OIL COMPANY AFLOAT. Granted, …Read On »

VOD Review: HOOKED UP

HOOKED UP | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Rating: Not Rated Cast: Jonah Ehrenreich, Stephen Ohl, Julia Molins, Natascha Wiese Writer: Pablo Larcuen, Eduard Sola Director: Pablo Larcuen Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: April 7, 2015 HOOKED UP proudly embraces the fact that the entire movie was shot using an iPhone. While this probably is bragging rights in some circles, I’m not sure if you should be proud of the achievement. Do many people rent video-on-demand features with the intention of seeing craptacular video quality? And while found footage and retro-set films have used filters and special effects to introduce bad looking video quality, I’m pretty sure the …Read On »

DIGGING UP THE MARROW | © 2015 Image Entertainment

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Ray Wise, Adam Green, Will Barratt Writer: Adam Green Director: Adam Green Distributor: RLJ Entertainment/Image Entertainment Release Date: March 24, 2015 Between making horror movies (the HATCHET series and FROZEN, not to be confused with the animated Disney film), horror shorts and a horror-comedy TV series (HOLLISTON) writer/director/producer Adam Green knows plenty about the horror business. His new film DIGGING UP THE MARROW has an insider’s knowledge and delight in genre conventions, which he manages to simultaneously tweak and honor. DIGGING UP THE MARROW has a documentary format, with Green playing himself and his regular cinematographer, …Read On »

So put your feet up, grab some popcorn and check out this week’s selections. Movies: WILD CARD – I’ve always said that Jason Statham is the king of the one-word action movies, having starred in SPY, HOMEFRONT, REDEMPTION, PARKER, SAFE, BLITZ, TRANSPORTER, CRANK and more. But maybe he is the king of the two-word action movies as well with THE EXPENDABLES, KILLER …Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Zsofia Psotta, Sandor Zsoter, Szabolcs Thuroczy, Lili Monori, Laszlo Galffi, Lili Horvath Writers: Kata Weber, Kornel Mundruczo, Viktoria Petranyi Director: Kornel Mundruczo Distributor: Magnolia Pictures Release Date: April 3, 2015 First let it be said that there are a whole slew of astonishing images in the Hungarian film (with English subtitles) WHITE DOG, courtesy of both director/co-screenwriter Kornel Mundruczo and animal trainers Teresa Ann Miller and Arpad Halasz. Another film with this many actual non-CGI dogs all performing together does not spring to mind. However, some of WHITE DOG’s themes have been approached before in the …Read On »

As is widely known, Paul Walker, who plays FAST & FURIOUS series stalwart Brian O’Conner, died in …Read On »
