It’s that time of the year again, and I’m not referring to the expensive Holiday season. I’m talking about the dreaded TOP 10 Favorite Films lists us reviewers annually face. While some of us love putting these lists together others I know absolutely dread it. It could be the notion of the extra work involved […]
Set in and around Memphis in the early 1970’s, Season 1 of this thrilling series centers on Mac Conway, a stigmatized Marine who finds himself lured into a lucrative offer from The Broker, a shady criminal involved in a network of killing and corruption.
With the rise of video on-demand, the line between major theatrical releases and films that seemingly go straight-to-video is starting to become blurred. Such is the case of a lot of thrillers not featuring major stars. The Invitation has every right to be appreciated as much as other horror/thrillers that pass as mainstream entertainment, but […]
Dubbed “the best horror film of the year” by Maxim, the stylish chiller The Invitation will arrive in a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack on July 26, 2016, from Drafthouse Films. In this taut psychological thriller from award-winning director Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body), the tension is palpable when Will (Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus) shows up […]
Cold Comes the Night is a fairly straightforward thriller that is basically a showcase for Bryan Cranston’s Russian criminal character. The film may lack much to really set it apart, but for what it is, the film is fine with moving at a quick pace to tell a fairly pulpy crime story, which happens to […]
They are calling this one of Bryan Cranston’s most disturbing performances. Hmm. That’s hard to top Mr. White in Breaking Bad, isn’t it? But wait! It’s not all about Bryan Cranston in this one, is it? It also contains the beautiful Alice Eve from the latest Star Trek flick. You remember that necessary scene she […]
Whether or not you knew this already, modern renaissance man/seemingly always squinting actor James Franco has not only been starring in films, but he has also tried his hand at directing several times. One of his latest efforts is an adaptation of the William Faulkner novel As I Lay Dying, which is considered to be […]
Prometheus, to me, is much like the acquired taste of beer. You may not like it the first time you try it, but the more you give it a chance, it becomes harder and harder to resist and suddenly that raunchy aftertaste becomes a thing of the past as it becomes more socially acceptable in […]
On October 9th, Ridley Scott returns to Blu-ray in the genre he helped define so long ago in PROMETHEUS. Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender lean an all-star cast in the epic, ambitious and bold sic-fi thriller. The Blu-ray contains over seven hours of bonus materials including an alternate opening and ending, deleted and alternate scenes […]
It must be difficult to approach a film like this from the perspective of a filmmaker who has done previous, similar work that is now considered a classic. It must also be difficult for someone to go in and see a film like this, knowing what one knows about said classic, the filmmaker, and the […]
If I had to rank my Top 3 “Most Anticipated” Films of 2012, Prometheus would have been a gut wrenching #4 choice. It’s not that I wasn’t really looking forward to it, but nothing will ever top my love for the Nolan’s Batman series, which I considered masterpieces, and Seth Grahame-Smith’s literary mash-up work, Abraham […]
