Blu-ray Review: POINT BREAK

POINT BREAK | © 2016 Warner Home Video

This should probably be called X-GAMES: THE MOVIE because we get just about every extreme sport rolled into one film in POINT BREAK. I will say, however, that if you are going to do a remake or re-imagining or whatever you’d like to call it, this is the way to go. The original POINT BREAK focused on a group of bank robbers that also happened to be surfers and an FBI guy gains the group’s trust to bring them down from the inside. The same plotline is here but instead of surfers, they are all extreme sports people from snowboarding, […]Read On »

That is what Hollywood has become. But every so often a gem sneaks through all the crap and blows you away with how good Hollywood can actually be. GRAVITY lives up to all the hype that it has been given in so many ways. The sheer scale of this film is […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: Sam Eidson rolls the eight-sided dice, and comes out with ZERO CHARISMA

ZERO CHARISMA | ©2013 Tribeca Film

For the straight set, the year’s most acclaimed performance belongs to Cate Blanchett as the unhinged, train engine of social destruction who blasts her formerly well-ordered life to smithereens, alienating friends and family with the effectiveness of a atom bomb in her absolute selfishness. However, it’s not like a whole bunch of physically and socially awkward role-playing viewers are going to exactly identify with the plight of a former doyenne of the Manhattan social scene. Instead, the actor they will undoubtedly call their own BLUE JASMINE is an Austinite named Sam Eidson, who takes on Orc-like fury as Scott, an […]Read On »

Profile: FIVE QUESTIONS WITH ‘THE GOONIES’ STAR COREY FELDMAN

It’s hard to believe that THE GOONIES is celebrating its 25th Anniversary (it has a brand-new Blu-ray set to prove it), so it was about  time ASSIGNMENT X caught up with actor Corey Feldman to talk about his memories playing the opinionated Mouth in that now classic 1985 film. The story was a pint-sized version of the INDIANA JONES saga (albeit with more juvenile humor), as a group of kids find a treasure map and go on an adventure in the bowels of their own home town. Feldman has fond memories of the experience and we got him to Take […]Read On »
