Movie Review: POLTERGEIST

POLTERGEIST (2015) | ©2015 20th Century Fox/MGM

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Charbino, Kyle Catlett, Kennedi Clements, Jane Adams, Jared Harris, Susan Heyward, Nicholas Braun Writer: David Lindsay-Abaire, story by Steven Spielberg Director: Gil Kenan Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: May 22, 2015 In 1982, POLTERGEIST was largely deemed to be scary as hell. A haunted house tale with extra oomph, it incited everything front nightmares to (in especially impressionable viewers) strange TV viewing habits. The film spawned two sequels, a non sequitur TV series, and now, thirty-three years later, it has an official remake. Despite the fact that POLTERGEIST hardly needs a …Read On »

CD Review: INHERENT VICE soundtrack

INHERENT VICE soundtrack | ©2014 Nonesuch Records

For much of his filmmaking career, Paul Thomas Anderson had used composer Jon Brion to convey his provocative cinematic approach, from the insane percussive assault of PUNCH DRUNK LOVE to the frog-raining, imposing orchestral thunderstorms of MAGNOLIA. In relatively recent years, Thomas has moved onto Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood to accompany his swings between transfixing brilliance and unbearable pretention, often within the same films. If anything, Greenwood’s music has tended to be even more innovatively insane than Brion’s, ranging between abstract modernism and hypnotic melody to capture the addled minds of kingpins, whether it was an oil baron’s very bad attitude …Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Danielle Panabaker, Matt O’Leary, George Finn, Amin Joseph, Jason Spisak, Sharon Maughan, David Figlioli Writers: Bradley King & BP Cooper Director: Bradley King Distributor: XLerator Media Release Date: theatrical & VOD, May 15, 2015 While not quite up there with 2004’s low-budget mind-bending time-travel thriller PRIMER, TIME LAPSE is a smart, pretty tight story that uses narrative invention and a single sci-fi element in lieu of production money. Directed by Bradley King, who co-wrote the clever screenplay with BP Cooper, TIME LAPSE introduces us to three roommates: would-be writer/current waitress Callie (Danielle Panabaker), artist and courtyard …Read On »

CD Review: SHAFT soundtrack

SHAFT soundtrack | ©2014 La La Land Records

Honkeys had their gun slinging, women-bedding superhero named James Bond for years until a 1971 sex machine named John Shaft showed that a black private dick could be just as bad-ass, especially when it came to an urban action-funk groove that got Isaac Hayes an Oscar winning song and nominated score. So perhaps it was a little ironic that a “white bloke from Luton” who’d been busy scoring 007 would land the music gig for John Singleton’s 2000 reboot, giving Sam Jackson a tailor-made vehicle to cement him as a big screen mofo. But even given Arnold’s urban pedigree that …Read On »

DVD/Video on Demand Review: AN IRISH EXORCISM

AN IRISH EXORCISM movie poster | ©2015 Virgil Films

Rating: Not Rated Stars: Aislinn Ni Uallachain, Dillon White, Brian Fortune, Paddy C. Courtney, Elaine Hearty, Anna Davis Writer: Martin Robinson Director: Eric Courtney Distributor: Virgil Films Release Date: May 12, 2015 The found-footage genre, that friend to every filmmaker who has a tale (and some who don’t) but no budget, ranges from the sublime to the idiotic. AN IRISH EXORCISM doesn’t break any ground – apart from perhaps being, as is claimed in the behind-the-scenes featurette, the only serious exorcism movie made so far in Ireland – but it’s a mostly good small-scale horror film. Writer Martin Robinson and …Read On »

Stars: Noah Galloway, Robert Herjavec, Nastia Liukin, Riker Lynch, Chris Soules, Rumer Willis Network: ABC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: May 4th, 2015 No elimination tonight on DANCING WITH THE STARS – hooray! After last week’s dreadful goodbye to Willow Shields & Mark Ballas, tonight’s show was a pleasant reprieve, until tomorrow’s results show, that is. Trio night on DWTS and only one couple perfected the night with a total of 80 points for two dances…Rumer Willis & Val Chmerkovskiy!
