THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING | © 2014 Anchor Bay

Rating: R Stars: Shane Johnson, Ella Anderson, Carla Pifko, Julie McNiven Writer: David Jung, story by David Jung & Tedi Sarafian Director: David Jung Distributor: Anchor Bay Release Date: August 22, 2014, theatrical/ August 26, 2014, VOD and iTunes THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING plays mix and match with its initial found footage set-up. Director/writer David Jung, working from a story he crafted with Tedi Sarafian, makes the switching back and forth fairly seamless and unobtrusive, though people who don’t like found footage probably won’t find this to their taste. The protagonist, Michael King (Shane Johnson), is followed by a …Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chloe Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos, Jamie Blackley, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Stacy Keach Writer: Shauna Cross, based on the novel by Gayle Forman Director: R.J. Cutler Distributor: Warner Bros./New Line/M-G-M Release Date: August 22, 2014 Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia Hall is so luminous that she actually persuades us that budding rocker Adam (Jamie Blackley) the coolest kid in a Portland, Oregon high school, would fall hard at first sight for her solitary cellist. What’s even more amazing is that we continue to give credence through this as we get to know Mia better. She is meant …Read On »

Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser, Matthew Gray Gubler, Anna Kendrick, Eva La Dare Writer: Jeff Baena Director: Jeff Baena Distributor: A24 Release Date: August 15, 2014 There are more of them out there, but for the purposes of this discussion, we’ll just name SHAUN OF THE DEAD, WARM BODIES and now LIFE AFTER BETH. It’s official – the zomromcom or romzomcom (i.e., romantic zombie comedy) is now its own subgenre.

Movie Review: SEPTIC MAN

SEPTIC MAN | © 2014 Starz Digital Media

Rating: R Stars: Jason David Brown, Molly Dunsworth, Robert Maillet, Tim Burd, Julian Richings, Stephen McHattie Writer: Tony Burgess Director: Jesse Thomas Cook Distributor: Starz Digital Media Release Date: August 15, 2014 Not for the faint of heart, or the weak of stomach, SEPTIC MAN combines the horrors of serial killers, claustrophobia and psychological damage with a hefty continuing dose of physical filth. It is effective and remarkably sober, except for a derangedly cheerful country-style song over the end credits. There may be a couple of thematic similarities, but no one is going to confuse this with, say, THE TOXIC …Read On »

Movie Review: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY | © 2014 Walt Disney Pictures/Marvel

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan Writers: James Gunn and Nicole Perlman, based on the comic books by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning Director: James Gunn Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures/Marvel Release Date: August 1, 2014 For a while, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY teeters on an edge. Yes, the visuals are striking and the jokes are funny, but at first, between self-centered thief Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), extremely angry Gamora (Zoe Saldana), dismissive genetically-modified raccoon Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and walking tree-of-few-words Groot (Vin Diesel), we’re not …Read On »

Movie Review: GET ON UP

GET ON UP | © 2014 Universal Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Dan Aykroyd Writers: Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, story by Steven Baigelman and Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth Director: Tate Taylor Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: August 1, 2014 The late soul singer/entertainer James Brown was known as “the hardest-working man in show business” and the biographical drama with music GET ON UP shows us why in detail. It is also consistently entertaining and intermittently moving, but by the end, we realize that it hasn’t been all that illuminating. We see Brown’s traumatic childhood, which suggests the adult Brown …Read On »
