Rating: R Stars: Katie Cassidy, Garret Dillahunt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Michael Imperioli, Gina Gershon, Sasha Grey, Kunal Nayyar, Ashlynn Yennie, Eliza Dushku, Billy Campbell Writer: Dan Schaffer Director: John Suits Distributor: Xlerator Media Release Date: September 19, 2014 THE SCRIBBLER can’t be accused of having too few ideas. In fact, the movie, written by Dan Schaffer and directed by John Suits, has plots that crisscross so much that they tend to cancel one another out, even though it looks as though the effect is meant to be cumulative. The primary and most intriguing notion here is that Suki (Katie Cassidy), already …Read On »

The Chance family on the Greg Garcia-created comedy RAISING HOPE has been through a lot. Jimmy Chance, played by Lucas Neff, started out as a surprised single father of infant daughter Hope after he found out his one-night stand with a serial killer (since executed) had resulted in a child. With Jimmy’s eccentric parents (Garret Dillahunt, Martha Plimpton) and even more eccentric Maw-Maw (Cloris Leachman) also in the household, little Hope has had a far from tranquil time of it. With Jimmy marrying his relatively level-headed sweetheart Sabrina (Shannon Woodward), things might calm down in the hour-long Season 3 finale, …Read On »

Movie Review: ANY DAY NOW

ANY DAY NOW poster | ©2012 Music Box Films

Rating: Unrated Stars: Alan Cumming, Garret Dillahunt, Isaac Leyva Writers: Travis Fine and George Arthur Bloom Director: Travis Fine Distributor: Music Box Films Release Date: December 14, 2012 It should be said upfront that this reviewer agrees completely with the underlying premise of ANY DAY NOW, which is that parentally fit gay people should be able to adopt children. In California, at least, the law seems to have caught up with this notion since the time the film takes place, which is 1979 through the early 1980s. Furthermore – and here the law has not caught up, though common sense …Read On »

Movie Review: LOOPER

Rating: R Stars: Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, Paul Dano, Piper Perabo, Jeff Daniels, Garret Dillahunt, Noah Segan, Pierce Gagnon Writer: Rian Johnson Director: Rian Johnson Distributor: TriStar Pictures/Film District Release Date: September 28, 2012 To say exactly which venerable time travel question LOOPER poses would be to give the game away. You’ll certainly know it when the film gets to it, but what’s especially cool is that writer/director Rian Johnson manages to come up with a new answer to the old moral conundrum. How we get there is a tale in itself. Joe (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), our protagonist and …Read On »

Stars: David Strathairn, Ryan Cartwright, Warren Christie, Warren Christie, Azita Ghanizada, Laura Mennell, Malik Yoba, Daniel Kash, Garret Dillahunt Writer: Michael Chamoy, series created by Zak Penn & Michael Karnow Director: John Showalter Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 29, 2011 Given the premise of ALPHAS, it’s a natural fit that the show would explore someone using an Alpha ability to start a cult. ALPHAS being ALPHAS, the cult leader is no false prophet but rather a man of sincere belief, and “A Short Time in Paradise” raises some intriguing issues, albeit it tends to come down strongly …Read On »

Actor Garret Dillahunt grew up in Washington State. He’s often associated with portraying ominous folks, though he has had his saintly moments on screen – he was even Jesus Christ in THE BOOK OF DANIEL – and has roots on stage and in comedy. With Fox’s freshman Tuesday night half-hour success RAISING HOPE (returning for new episodes tonight), Dillahunt returns to humor. His character Burt Chance is a married man who is nonplused to become a grandfather, especially when living-at-home son Jimmy (Lucas Neff) decides to keep baby Hope after Hope’s serial killer mom is executed. In part one of …Read On »
