Movie Review: #ElectricSlide

Electric Slide aims for Bonnie and Clyde but fails miserably short. The rehashed story never quite gets off the ground, with little tension, it's not only tiresome, but uninteresting. Jim Sturgess plays Eddie Dodson, a Melrose Avenue antiques dealer who decided to become a bank robber. Dodson drove to the banks in a black '63 Ford Galaxy LTD. He dressed up like an elegant criminal. He made mix tapes to listen to on his getaways. And in only nine months, Eddie robbed 64 banks - more than anyone has robbed before or since. Taking its aesthetic cues from Eddie Dodson and the unique moment he occupied in L.A.'s counter cultural history, director Tristan Patterson has forgone the style of straight‐ahead biopics to create a New Wave dream of a romantic outlaw seeking self‐reinvention and immortality in paradise. While Dodson is meant to be a charismatic, and sexy, he emulates creepy more efficiently. There is nothing attractive or compelling about his “give it to me

Guardians Of the Galaxy Casting News. Zachary Levi In The Lead To Play Star-Lord

Just before Hollywood shuts down for the holidays, Marvel Studios has narrowed its shortlist of actors to star in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," with Zachary Levi and Jim Sturgess still in contention to play team leader Peter Quill . Better known as Star-Lord , Quill is the son of a human mother and alien father. A charming troublemaker who serves as an interplanetary policeman, Quill leads a rag-tag group of superheroes ( Drax the Destroyer, a raccoon named Rocket and a sword-wielding woman named Gamora ) in an effort to protect the solar system from an evil alien race. The character isn't as well known as other Marvel superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America or Thor , but Quill is still a plum role for thesps looking to boost their international profile. Marvel reportedly made test deals with five potential leading men several weeks ago, though "Cloud Atlas" star Sturgess is the only one from that list to remain in contention. Lev

Cloud Atlas Review. A Disaster From The Start

Cloud Atlas Review By: MattInRC Make sure to Follow MattInRC on Twitter for all his reviews and tasteless jokes. Confusing throughout, flat out unintelligible at points, and just plain boring, Cloud Atlas is almost three hours of frustration you're well-advised to skip. If you were one of the unfortunate few who bravely watched 1984's Dune , you were privy to a disaster that few films have matched. Since then, the formula (which involves an ambitious project wracked with a mix of shoddy storytelling, terrible acting, and poor editing) has sadly been well-duplicated. The year 2012 has seen its share of potential dance partners for Dune, but few come close to the quagmire which is Cloud Atlas . Few films will spawn such a polarization of opinion as this nearly three hour epic will, but it's clear that ' disaster' is an apropos place to start. Any attempt at a summary would be folly, but suffice it to say our actors get to play multiple role
