Sinister Review. Freakishly-Intense Film

Sinister Review  By: MattInRC 
Make sure to follow MattInRC on twitter for all his reviews.


Sinister might be a little weird and filled with too many horror cliches, but it never gives you a minute to breathe.11 True crime writer Ellison Oswalt (Ethan Hawke, Gattaca) hasn't experienced a real hit since his Blood Kentucky novel 10 years before. He's gotten quite a reputation from it, but it's also left him with big shoes to fill. Having struggled ever since and doomed to proof-read textbooks to pay the bills, Ellison needs a hit and soon. But when he and the family move into a house that was the scene of a grisly murder, Ellison thinks he's hit on the story of his life. His wife Tracey (Juliet Rylance, Animal) is supportive but realizes that Ellison needs another hit to keep him going, even though he promises they will return to their real home when his research is completed. He instantly earns the ire of the local sheriff (Fred Dalton Thompson, The Hunt for Red Octo…

ARGO Movie Review. Does The Film Deserve An Oscar?

ARGO Movie Review  By: MattInRC
Make sure to follow MattInRC on Twitter for all his reviews.

Ben Affleck's Argo is an engrossing and smart historical thriller that while not perfect has much to celebrate.


Most films based on true stories inevitably suffer from two issues: how much has been embellished, and will audiences embrace a film in which they already know the ending. These were the questions surrounding the historical drama/thriller Argo before its release; and while we all know how things will end, we find ourselves on the edge of our seat, at once cheering for the safe return of Americans that we already know did come home, and booing those responsible for making this world such a dangerous place afterwards.


Our story isn't about character redemption, finding one's soul after a two-hour dramatic exposition, or some other feel-good plot designed to win Oscars: it's about CIA agent Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck, Dogma) following through on his simple promise to rescu…

The Goon Gets A Kickstarter Campaign

A kickstarter campaign for a David Fincher movie?

Yes, indeed.

The venerable director, along with Tim Miller of Blur Studios and Dark Horse Studios, has taken to crowdfunding to help fund the development of an animated feature based on The Goon, the off-beat Eric Powell comic book

The movie has been in development for a couple of years – Fincher is executive producing with Miller co-directing with Jeff Fowler – and thousands of dollars has been spent. An animated proof of concept clip was created and shown at Comic-Con but the project hasn’t gone to the next level since finding a financier to back an animated film that isn’t all-ages or family entertainment is seen as risky. (Tim Burton and Disney's Frankenweenie, which pushes the edges of kid horror and is only PG, is currenty struggling at the box office.)

And Goon is definitely in the PG-13 mold (ratings aren't official until after the MPAA has its say). It’s a paranormal-themed quirky comic that mixes humor and violence a…

Snoop Dogg Pitches Hot Pockets. Didn't Know HP Was Gangsta

I know this really has nothing to do with my site but I had to post this.

I guess eating Hot Pockets is Gangsta now.



So begins Snoop Dogg's music video foray as a pitchman in a Hot Pockets ad. The clip, part of a digital campaign promoting the product, reworks the rapper's 2004 chart-topping single "Drop it Like it's Hot" into "Pocket Like it's Hot." It's a parody in praise of greasy, microwaveable snacks.

Robert De Niro & Sylvester Stallone Are Set For A Grudge Match

Warner Bros has set Kevin Hart to play the fight promoter who gets two retired brawlers back in the ring in Grudge Match. Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone are now set to play the fighters who square off in the ring, and the studio has greenlighted the film that will be directed by Peter Segal. Tim Kelleher wrote the script and the most recent draft is by Entourage architect Doug Ellin, with Billy Gerber and Mark Steven Johnson producing with Michael Ewing.

Hart is hot stuff after Think Like A Man, but the draw here will be to see Rocky Balboa and Jake LaMotta from Raging Bull go at it in a grudge match. When I moderated a Tribeca Film Festival panel for Universal’s 100th birthday with De Niro and Judd Apatow, De Niro said he didn’t really see himself recapturing the killer shape he got into when he starred in Raging Bull and in Cape Fear. Now, he’s playing a retired fighter, but I’ll bet De Niro puts back on the six-pack, knowing that at 66, Stallone is always jacked.

Seven Psychopaths Review. Most Inventive & Funny Stories Of The Year

Seven Psychopaths Review  By: MattInRC
Make sure to follow MattInRC on twitter for all his movie and Blu-Ray reviews.


Seven Psychopaths is one of the most inventive and funny stories of the year, that is if you can get over the 'C' word. Yeah, that one.


What happens when you use the 'C' word so many times in a film that it becomes par for the course? Just ask the film Seven Psychopaths, which employs that word and a dozen other inappropriate tricks like a hooker uses handwipes, resulting in one of the bloodiest, funniest, and enjoyable films of the year. Not unlike a Quentin Tarantino film, Psychopaths unabashedly steals every element from Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs in a script by Writer/Director Martin McDonaugh (In Bruges) that seems to breathe on its own, ill-content to stay formulaic or even predictable for a second.


Marty (Colin Farrell, Total Recall 2012) is a struggling alcoholic Hollywood writer intent on creating the next great action bloodbath; but, his…

Chris Hemsworth Offered Millions To Be An "American Assassin"

After trying since 2008 to turn Vince Flynn’s bestselling novel series into an action franchise, CBS Films thinks it has found the actor to play terrorist hunter Mitch Rapp. CBS Films has offered Chris Hemsworth $10 million to star in American Assassin.


While it is the 11th book in Flynn’s series of espionage novels, American Assassin is an ideal place to start a movie franchise. The novel is a prequel that explains how tragedy transformed Rapp from a college scholar and athlete into a ruthless hunter of terrorists for the CIA. Bruce Willis is also in talks, to play Rapp’s mentor. The film will be directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, who has covered the terrorist hunting terrain directing episodes of Showtime’s Homeland and also helmed the Don Cheadle thriller Traitor. Nachmanoff also co-wrote with Roland Emmerich The Day After Tomorrow and helmed the pilot for the Dick Wolf-produced NBC series Chicago Fire.

The most recent script draft was written by Mike Finch, who took over a draft wri…

Jurassic Park IV Concept Art Work

After Joe Johnston's Jurassic Park III in 2001, there was meant to be, at some point, a Jurassic Park IV. Scripts were offered to Spielberg and then rejected numerous times, with William Monahan and John Sayles' effort working on the idea of dinosaurs-on-the-mainland combined with human/dinosaur hybrid soldiers that could use guns and carry out simple tasks.


Now artwork has surfaced online that reportedly originates with ILM's Andrew Cawrse and concept artist Carlos Huante, revealing just how far down the pipeline this pretty outrageous idea went. And before you look at them, know this: they're pretty damn weird. You have been warned...

As for the current situation with the far-more-likely-to-happen version of Jurassic Park IV (as penned by Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes writing team Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver), that's all still pencilled in for a 2014 release, though it looks like it might end up being more like 2015 accordi…
