Movie Review: The Gunman (2015)

Pierre Morel certainly knows a thing or two about molding celebrated thespians into B-movie action heroes, having previously kicked off Liam Neeson’s twilight transformation into a growly ass-kicker with the first “Taken” flick, but not everyone can make the transition so smoothly. Sean Penn seems an even unlikelier B-pic headliner than Neeson once was, considering…

Movie Review: The Barber (2014)

The Barber is a B-movie’s B-movie. While many of the tropes those well-acquainted with this type of film have come to know are present, several of them are approached uniquely or service the plot in ways far less tired than the tropes themselves. Truer to form still is the ridiculously overdone ending, another familiar element…

Movie Review: A Cry From Within (2014)

By far the best and most original aspect of A Cry From Within is the fact that it revolves around an extremely solid family. Advertising executive Cecile (Deborah Twiss, who wrote and directed the film and upon whose real life experiences it claims to be based), therapist Jonathan (Eric Roberts “The Expendables”), and their children…

Movie Review: Something Wicked (2014)

As the case itself boasts in a rather tasteless red banner across its top, Something Wicked was the last movie in which the late Brittany Murphy appeared. If this uncomfortably poor attempt at a cerebral horror film will be remembered for anything, it will be that. Well, that and the fact that Murphy probably deserved…

Movie Review: Run All Night (2015)

Jaume Collet-Serra’s new action thriller Run All Night stars Liam Neeson as a once notorious hit man named Jimmy Conlon. Jimmy’s nickname was “The Gravedigger,” so you know just what kind of person we’re dealing with here. However, these days Jimmy is just a shadow of his former self, relying heavily on his long standing…

Movie Trailer: Tomorrowland (2015)

Sure it feels a bit like “The Wizard of Oz,” but there is certainly a sense of wonderment to Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming Tomorrowland. With the touch of a button, young Casey (Britt Robertson) is whisked away to some type of alternate dimension where the brightest have come together to change the world for the…

Movie Review: Blackhat (2015)

From its opening images of our planet illuminated by technology, to a remarkable long take that takes the viewer through the inner operation and impact of computer processing, Blackhat hooks the viewer both emotionally and intellectually. The film delivers an enthralling rendering of both the macro and micro scale of our interconnected digital world, offering…
