Rating: R Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, Jim Carrey Writer: Jeff Wadlow, based on the comics by Mark Millar & John S. Romita Jr. Director: Jeff Wadlow Distributor: Universal Release Date: August 16, 2013 Released in 2010 and based on the comics series created by Mark Millar & John S. Romita Jr., the original KICK-ASS was a little uneven and slightly more controversial, what with a pre-pubescent Hit Girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) gleefully and gorily slaughtering bad guys. In the main, though, it was fun, surprising, self-aware without being self-sabotaging and generally worth seeing. Now […]Read On »

Rating: R Stars: Nicolas Cage, January Jones, Guy Pearce, Jennifer Carpenter, IronE Singtleton, Harold Perrineau, Xander Berkeley Writer: Robert Tannen, story by Todd Hickey and Robert Tannen Director: Roger Donaldson Distributor: Anchor Bay Films Release Date: March 16, 2012 SEEKING JUSTICE is a somewhat gonzo mixture of THE STAR CHAMBER, PAY IT FORWARD and any number of movies about a good man who gets himself into a bad situation. Of course, we can see that Nicolas Cage’s Will Gerard is making a big mistake long before he does. Still, thanks to some nifty action sequences staged by director Roger Donaldson, […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Kit Nelson”

Stars: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill Director: Jack Bender Network: Fox, airs Monday nights Original Telecast: January 24, 2012 Like all new genre series, the pilot usually kicks things off in grand fashion, but the next few episodes are all about finding a tone and a way to do epic stories on a much smaller TV budget. The other issue – how much mythology to dole out week by week without confusing new viewers? ALCATRAZ definitely follows that pattern as the third episode “Kit Nelson” struggles to find a workable tone and an engaging mystery without coming off as […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Pilot”/“Earnest Cobb” – Series Premiere

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra Writers: Elizabeth Sarnoff, Jack Bender Directors: Danny Cannon, Steven Lilen, Bryan Wynbrandt Network: Fox, Airs Mondays at 9 p.m. Original Telecast: January 16, 2012 Whenever I see something about Alcatraz, I can’t help but think of THE ROCK. Just because it was sooo Michael Bay at his explosive finest and sooo over-the-top Sean Connery (and his quotes about doing the prom queen and generous use of expletives) that it makes for a great watch – not to mention batsh** crazy Nicolas Cage. So throughout the two hour season premiere for ALCATRAZ […]Read On »
