Blu-ray Review: 'Furious 7'

Filled with high-octane stunts and likable additions, Furious 7 roars to a tearful tribute.
Review by Matt Cummings
WARNING: This review contains SPOILERS.
Review by Matt Cummings
When Furious 7 arrived in theaters on April 3, 2015 it was unclear whether audiences would accept the inevitable: that Actor Paul Walker - who tragically died in 2013 - would no longer grace this lucrative franchise. Would the film, delayed almost a year as it was re-shot, bring a satisfying conclusion to Walker's Brian O'Conner story arc? Based on its incredible success out-of-the-gate success, the answer was an emphatic yes. Whether it's the best of the series is open to debate, but as it arrives on Blu-ray it's clear that Universal commands the field, with one of the best looking and sounding affairs of the year.

With Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) defeated in London, Team Furious doesn't realize that Shaw's meaner brother Deckard (Jason Statham) has vowed a blood oat…

Movie Review: Death Valley

Enter this valley and prepare for a slow death.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
Four people are cruising a lonesome stretch of desert highway. The driver, Billy (Lochlyn Munro, who’s been in many things, yet Dead Man on Campus is what I will always associate him with), is a drunken loudmouth, not even ceasing his drinking when behind the wheel. He is engaged to a hot little number named Annie (Katrina Law), whom he only just met the night before at an L.A. charity event. Also in the car is a married couple, Roy and Jamie (Nick E. Tarabay and Victoria Pratt), a comparatively conservative duo who also just met Billy and Annie the previous night. All of them are heading to Vegas for Billy and Annie’s impetuous nuptials, but the feel-good vibe of the trip is obliterated when a half-naked woman appears in the road, firing a gun at the car. The car is run off the road and the woman now lays dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Now the group is stranded in the blistering heat, miles from civiliz…

Movie Review: Crimson Peak

Horror-drama looks great, but its story is ghostly.
Review by Brandon Wolfe
Early in Crimson Peak, aspiring writer Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska) proclaims of a story she’s working on, “It’s not a ghost story, it’s a story with a ghost in it.” It’s a highly self-aware moment from writer/director Guillermo del Toro, as that very same distinction could also be applied to his latest film. Crimson Peak is being marketed as a full-blown spookfest, the period setting and prestigious cast seemingly the only things separating it from a regular monthly installment from the Blumhouse factory. Truth be told, while there are ghosts in play during Crimson Peak, and while they do some freaky things, they exist solely as an accessory in a story that isn’t actually about them, that potentially doesn’t even require them.

In the late 19th Century, wealthy American industrialist Carter Cushing (Jim Beaver) takes a meeting with an aristocratic British entrepreneur, Sir Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston), wh…

Who do you play? What makes him tick?

I play the role of Billy Rich. he is a guy who has been caught up in the Hollywood scene for too long and is starting to believe all of his own B.S. He is fighting his own demons and has succumbed to the pressures of power and greed.

The film has got a lot of attention from online media in recent months; is the internet a saving grace when it comes to smaller films?

I think the internet has definitely become a great platform for smaller budget films. Everyone tends to watch all sorts of entertainment platforms on all sorts of devices, so it’s really leveled the playing field for independent films.

What do you think audiences will take away from the movie?

I hope the audiences coming away from the film feeling that…

TV Review: Fargo "Waiting for Dutch" (Season 2 Premiere)

Has the FX series still got it? You betcha.

Review by Brandon Wolfe
Fargo, FX’s expansion of the Coen Bros’ modern film classic, was last year’s greatest surprise. There was every reason to look at the series askance prior to its debut. The film, with its unique blend of “aw, jeez” Minnesota geniality and blood-in-the-snow violence, seemed impossible to duplicate without simply standing as a facile duplication. Even with a top-shelf cast, featuring Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, it was hard to imagine the show amounting to anything more than a misguided curiosity, a fool’s errand to recapture something too idiosyncratic to replicate. The bar was set too high to clear. Forget it, series creator Noah Hawley, it’s the Coen Brothers.

Yet Fargo did the impossible. It carved out its own niche, telling a story that meshed with the Fargo house style while being uniquely its own thing. Hawley spoke fluent Coen without seemingly like a mere impressionist. The unlikely result was a seas…

Exclusive Interview With Director TJ Scott . We Talk #DeathValley & So Much More

By: John Meneghetti

I had the chance to talk to director TJ Scott about his upcoming film Death Valley and what Superhero film he would like to direct.



Can you tell me about the film and how you got involved?

Writer Brad MacPherson and I had wanted to collaborate on a script together for about a year when he brought me a storyline he was conjuring up that I really liked because thematically it delved into ‘how you never really know anyone until you are in a crisis with them’ - and how every person has 'the Mask they want you to see - and the Mask they hide'. We took his storyline and sculpted it into a movie that could shoot in Death Valley - because it is my favorite place on earth - but it is very difficult to shoot there as it is a National Park, with many restrictions. Shortly after finishing the script our Producer friend Taylor Williams mentioned he was looking for a cool little Indy Script to help finance - he liked our script - and we were off and running. I had a tin…

Charlize Theron To Star In The Gray Man

According to Deadline Sony Pictures is in talks with Charlize Theron to come aboard The Gray Man, an adaptation of the Mark Greaney novel that at one time had Brad Pitt ready to star with James Gray directing.  Theron is in the process of attaching herself as the star, with her Denver and Delilah label coming aboard as producers alongside Joe Roth.

The script is by Joe and Anthony Russo, who were at one time attached as directors before they got busy with Captain America: Civil War and the next two installments of The Avengers.

The thriller focuses on an expert CIA op-turned-assassin who is forced to evade adversaries as he saves the lives of daughters he didn’t know he had. Obviously that is harder to do when the protagonist is female, but I guess they’ll figure it out. Sony famously changed the gender of another spy thriller, Salt, which was tailored for Angelina Jolie after Tom Cruise bowed out of the lead role. It doesn’t happen that often and puts Theron in rare territory. She ru…

Leonardo DiCaprio To Produce #Volkswagen Scandal Movie

Variety is reporting Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson have come on board to produce Paramount’s movie about the Volkswagen clean diesel scandal.

The duo are producing through their Appian Way banner. There are no acting or directing attachments yet.

Paramount has acquired movie rights to Jack Ewing’s upcoming book, which will detail the scandal in which the company placed illegal software in their clean diesel cars that could tell when a car was being tested for fuel emissions and would turn on the emissions control to cheat the test and meet EPA standards. During normal driving conditions, emission control software was shut off — resulting in as much as 40 times more pollution than allowed by law.

Volkswagen is currently facing up to $18 billion in fines from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The scandal has rocked the automotive company, with Volkswagen’s stock plunging, and called into question the future of the German automotive industry. The scandal has also damag…
