Rating: R Stars: Imogen Poots, Jesse Eisenberg, Jonathan Aris, Eanna Hardwicke, Senan Jennings Writer: Garret Shanley Director: Lorcan Finnegan Distributor: Saban Films Release Date: March 27, 2020 VIVARIUM begins with the spectacle of a young cuckoo chick shoving other baby birds of another species out of a nest so that it can get the other chicks’ parent’s food all to itself. This beginning is in one way a literal representation of what we’re about to see, but in another way, it’s inexact. We meet good-hearted elementary school teacher Gemma (Imogen Poots) and her landscaper boyfriend Tom (Jesse Eisenberg) as they’re […]Read On »

NOW YOU SEE ME 2 highlights Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for Sept. 6, 2016

NOW YOU SEE ME 2 | © 2016 Lionsgate Home Entertainment

Movies: NOW YOU SEE ME 2 – The first NOW YOU SEE ME was a fun romp that mixed high profile magic with the possibility it was real mixed up in a caper involving good and bad magicians as well as some revenge elements. It ended with a finality of any one-off movie but this being Hollywood, something that becomes successful usually means it gets a sequel and here we are. Luckily, it isn’t bad albeit quite a bit different from the first. Instead of grand magic acts that are complex and amazing we instead get some tricky and slight-of-hand. […]Read On »

BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE EXTENDED CUT

BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE | © 2016 Warner Home Video

Cast: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Gal Gadot, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter Writers: Chris Terrio, David S. Goyer Director: Zack Snyder Publisher: Warner Home Video After spending years in development, what we got in BATMAN V. SUPERMAN left a lot to be desired. It was lambasted by critics for being too dark and too scatterbrain. Some fans also didn’t like it because it continued to portray Superman as a dark, brooding man with difficult morality choices and being extremely different from the comic books. Now, I thought the original cut was actually pretty […]Read On »

Summit Entertainment held a special Los Angeles screening of NOW YOU SEE ME on May 23rd at the ArcLight Hollywood. Although it was just a screening the fans still came out to get autographs and pictures and screamed when they saw the stars.

Director Ruben Fleischer may have come from the music video and commercials world, but his directorial debut ZOMBIELAND proved he could handle great storytelling, absurd humor on top of some highly stylized visual filmmaking techniques. With the critical and commercial success of ZOMBIELAND, Fleischer was looking for something a little more low-key for his follow-up which he discovered with the comedy 30 MINUTES OR LESS. The story follows a pizza delivery guy (ZOMBIELAND star Jesse Eisenberg) who has a bomb strapped to his body by a couple of thugs who give him a short window to rob a bank or […]Read On »
