Rating: Not Rated Stars: Kevin Durand, Lukas Haas, Bianca Kajlich, Ethan Khusidman Writer: Tyler Hisel Director: Jack Heller Distributor: Image Entertainment/RLJ Entertainment Release Date: Blu-ray/DVD/VOD, September 1, 2015 DARK WAS THE NIGHT makes no pretense of reinventing the wheel. It is a straightforward, slow-burn monster in the woods story. What elevates it, apart from the strong performances of leads Kevin Durand and Lukas Haas, is the sense of certainty demonstrated by director Jack Heller and writer Tyler Hisel, demonstrating that sometimes all a story needs is to be told well.

Movie Review: Z FOR ZACHARIAH

Z FOR ZACHARIAH movie poster | ©2015 Lionsgate / Roadside Attractions

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, Chris Pine Writer: Nissar Modi, based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien Director: Craig Zobel Distributor: Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions Release Date: August 28, 2015 Based on the novel by Robert C. O’Brien, Z FOR ZACHARIAH is a different kind of post-apocalyptic film. There are wastelands we glimpse from afar, but we’re not trapped in them. Likewise, there are no bands of marauders seeking oil, water, slaves or food. Instead, we are in a verdant valley that has somehow been untouched by what our heroine Ann (Margot Robbie) refers to as “the mistake,” which …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Kathryn Love Newton, Leisha Hailey, Treva Etienne, Russell Porter Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Steve Boyum Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 29, 2015 “Angel Heart” falls somewhere between moving the arc along and mission of the week. It answers one regular, if not imperative, question, gives Misha Collins as Castiel some big moments and shows us that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are coping more or less as usual, despite everyone’s continued concern about the Mark of Cain’s influence. As regular SUPERNATURAL …Read On »
