Movie Review: Nola and the Clones (2016)

Writer-director Graham Jones (“The History Student,” “The Randomers,” “How to Cheat in the Learning Certificate”) can be astutely described as a lyrical Irish filmmaker with moving narratives that seem so personal and profound in dramatic simplicity. In Jones’s latest indie drama Nola and the Clones he helms yet another soulful exposition grounded in the given realities of…

Movie Review: Spotlight (2015)

“Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides” — William Shakespeare, King Lear Except for unrelenting bulldogs like Seymour Hersh (who had to publish his latest article outside of the U.S.), true investigative journalism seems to have become as obsolete as the 8-Track Tape. Tom McCarthy’s (“The Cobbler”) Spotlight, however, reminds us of what it was…

Movie Review: The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill (2013)

Just in time for the Halloween season comes The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill, another run-of-the-mill paranormal investigation film involving a group of people exploring a haunted locale with cameras that capture a whole lot of nothing until the last 20 minutes of runtime when the obligatory creepy occurrences abound. But while this basic description holds true,…

Movie Review: Calvary (2014)

Red Band Movie Trailer: Red State (2011)

No Jay or Silent Bob here. Red State breaks away from Kevin Smith’s comfort zone, representing his first foray into the horror genre. The hook? Extreme Christian fundamentalism in the heartland of America. Three teens find themselves captive of a Waco-like cult intent on changing the world they live in any way necessary. It’s not…

Movie Review: Priest (2011)

The last time that former visual effects technician Scott Charles Stewart directed Paul Bettany in a motion picture, the result was 2010’s quite literally God-awful “Legion.” Loosely based on the South Korean comic series of the same name, 2011’s Priest is an improvement over “Legion” . . . but not by much. As befitting of…

Movie Trailer: Salvation Boulevard (2011)

Church versus church. Pastor versus pastor. A member of the congregation holds the truth that could topple their empires. Based on the book of the same name (written by the stylized mind of Larry Beinhart), Salvation Boulevard exposes, while poking fun at, the goings-ons of evangelical megachurches. But, as the trailer for the movie released…
