Movie Review: The Snowman

Joel Edgerton Joins Depp In Black Mass

Big day on the Croisette for Joel Edgerton. The Australian actor just took the bows for the Cannes opening night film The Great Gatsby, and he just closed a deal to star alongside Johnny Depp in the Cross Creek crime thriller Black Mass, which Barry Levinson is directing. The picture is a co-production between Cross Creek and Nigel Sinclair and Guy East’s Exclusive Media, with the two entities co-financing and Universal Pictures releasing in the U.S. through Cross Creek’s distribution deal with the studio.

Whitey Bulger rose to the top of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List when he disappeared for a decade before he could be put behind bars. Many felt he could never have gotten that far without the help of John Connolly, an FBI agent and childhood pal of Bulger and his brother. Connolly was tasked with bringing down the Italian mob, and he was aided by Bulger, who burnished his own position as Boston crime kingpin by getting rid of the competition for his Winter Hill gang. Edgerton will pla…

Samuel L. Jackson To Join Barely Lethal

After spending the last couple of years overseeing a handful of superheroes, Samuel L. Jackson should have no trouble handling a teenage assassin.

Samuel L. Jackson is in final negotiations to co-star with Hailee Steinfeld in the indie “Barely Lethal” that Brett Ratner is producing.

Kyle Newman is helming with John D’Arco penning the script. John Cheng will join Ratner as a producer through their Rat Entertainment banner along with Ted Hartley and Vanessa Coifman for RKO Pictures and Hopscotch Pictures’ Sukee Chew.

Story follows a 16-year-old international assassin yearning for a “normal” adolescence who fakes her own death and enrolls as a senior in a suburban high school. Jackson will play her mentor who trains her in the program.

The last time Jackson tangled with assassins was when he teamed with Geena Davis in the 1996 action pic “The Long Kiss Goodnight.”

Always one of the busiest actors in town, Jackson lends his voice later this summer to the DreamWorks Animation pic “Turbo” an…

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Review. One Of The Best Summer Films Of 2013

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Review By: MattInRC

As a diehard Star Trek fan, I've seen Science Fiction evolve over the years, with the very good Star Trek: The Original Series leading the way in my early youth. To me, the adventures of Kirk, Spock, and Bones were the epitome of human drama in space, with The Enterprise hosting this trio of bold brave men exploring the universe. Their interactions and debates were as enjoyable as every Vulcan Nerve Pinch by Spock and high-flying drop kick that Kirk ever made. To Kirk, the Enterprise was a living thing, with as much emotion as its chief engineer Montgomery Scott. Spock and Bones were living representations of his morals and values, and their friendship bound the three together as this soap opera set amongst the backdrop of deep space paved the way for Star Wars, and later a successul string of Trek movies and television series. But, Trek was never so good after TOS, with the could-have-been (The Next Generation), the blah (Deep Space…

Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

A Haunted House Blu-ray Review By: MattInRC

 A Haunted House Blu-ray Review By: MattInRC
The Wayans Brothers's A Haunted House Blu-ray release is one of the worst of the year, sporting a below-average video transfer, an average DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and a single supplement that shouldn't have been a candidate in the first place. But it's the completely unoriginal film that suffers here, reducing the experience to nothing more than mind-numbing fare and making this release a definite skip.

A parody of the found-footage horror films, A Haunted House is neither funny nor redeeming as even a rental. I won't belabor the point much longer, but disappointments from 2012 such as Battleship, Cloud Atlas, and John Carter look like amazing cinematic efforts as compared to A Haunted House. At least those films attempted to pair stories with good actors before being shunned by the general public. It's becoming a sad commentary to skip anything by the once great Wayans Brothers, as their kind of sht…

CHEECH & CHONG’S ANIMATED MOVIE Blu-Ray Review

CHEECH & CHONG’S ANIMATED MOVIE Blu-Ray Review By: MattInRC
Here's why Cheech & Chong were funny 30 years ago, but not today.

In every way possible, Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie feels more like a rehash of old shtick than a solidified comeback. In fact, that's all it really is, matched up with some simply-drawn cartoon characters who talk about getting stoned at a drive-in movie theater. That already dates the material to those of us who can remember when three channels ruled the airwaves. I've never heard of an act using their old recordings to freshen up their classic material, but we see it here, and it doesn't seem to work..

And while it looks pretty good - thanks to a clean 1080p MPEG/AVC transfer - and sounds ok courtesy of a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, there's just nothing that's funny about it. Had we seen this 30 years ago, before Jay and Silent Bob owned that piece of stoner territory, we might have laughed a lot longer. The …
