A Long Way From Home (2013)

Back to the Future (1985)

One of the 80's most highly regarded family films, it just happens to be completely racist and has an attempted rape for good family fun. I tend to think it was spoiled out of the gate, but I am certainly in the minority on this one.  



Back to the Future Part II (1989)

This time with hoverboards and laceless shoes. 


Back to the Future Part III (1990)

This time they go to the old west. To be perfectly honest, I want to say something snarky but I can't remember anything about this one except the Clint Eastwood joke.





Bad Boys II (2003)

Michael Bay unhinged.


Batman: The Movie (1966)

Remember when Batman was fun?



Beavis and Butt-head Do America (1996)


Between: Season 2 - NETFLIX ORIGINAL

Beverly Hills Cop (1984)

Beverly Hills Cop II (1987)

In my humble opinion, Tony Scott made a great buddy cop action comedy that was far superior to the original.



Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

My second favorite of the Carpenter/Russell collaborations. His hair deserved an Oscar for best performance in a leading role.  



Blade 2 (2002)
 
By the People: The Election of Barack Obama (2009)

Catwoman (2004)

Cheaper by the Dozen (1950)

Death Race 3: Inferno (2013)

This is a thing? Who knew?


Deep: Season 1 - NETFLIX ORIGINAL

Dreamcatcher (2003)

An underrated adaptation of an underrated Stephen King novel from the guy who wrote The Empire Strikes Back. If you haven't seen it, give it a shot. The toilet scene alone makes this something worth checking out.



Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011)

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)

Gladiator (2000)

Hello, Dolly! (1969)

Hey Arnold! The Movie (2002)

Honey (2003)

Insomnia (2002)

Christopher Nolan had a difficult task in adapting this film for American audiences. Why do it? I'm not sure he really answered that question other than, we don't like to read our movies. Al Pacino's off the rails style actually fits the character here and we get to see some fine work from Robin Williams. If you haven't seen the original and are looking for a decent suspense thriller, you could do far worse.



The Italian Job (2003)

Jackass: Number Two (2006)

Mean Girls (2004)

This movie rules.


Nevada Smith (1966)

Nick of Time (1995)

John Badham has had an interesting career. Having done everything from Saturday Night Fever to Short Circuit and War Games. His films are very much of their time and act as time capsules unlike few others. He made seemingly silly films that he took very seriously. The results are mixed but always interesting. Nick of Time is the film that seemed to change the trajectory of his work, he only made one theatrical release after this before moving into episodic TV. We might be in the golden age of television but I miss his voice on the big screen.

Episode 208 - Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

We like to keep up with the latest and greatest in the film universe so for this episode we're dialing up Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. In a world where superhero films saturate the market, can an animated feature distinguish itself from the pack?

LAFF review A CROOKED SOMEBODY

2107
Directed By: Trevor White
Starring: Rich Sommer, Clifton Collins Jr., Joanne Froggatt, Amanda Crew, Ed Harris
Producers: Jason Potash, Paul Finkel, Tim White, Wayne L. Rogers Sales: CAA
Ambition is a powerful drug that can inspire positive change. It can force you outside of the comfortable boxes you place yourself in. It asks you to stretch and reimagine not only the person you are but the person you could be. Most great men and women have a deep relationship with what they see as their purpose. This is a personality trait never driven by or limited to the pragmatic and there in lies the problem. Logic be damned, when a sense of determination is your north star. 
Michael Vaughn (Sommer) is an ambitious psychic on the road promoting a book that no one is buying. Using parlor tricks and audience plants Vaughn helps people "connect" with loved ones who have passed on. Somewhere in between a traveling preacher and a low-rent John Edwards he sees himself as a man destined …

SONG OF SOLOMON Review

Exorcism films do not begin and end with William Friedkin's THE EXORCIST. With entries as varied as BEETLEJUICE, CONSTANTINE, and THE RITE, the exorcism sub-genre of horror films is far more diverse than many immediately recognize.  

With THE SONG OF SOLOMON director Stephen Brio has added a unique take on the possession movie. In his film, the Catholic church attempts to save the soul of Mary (Jessica Cameron) who appears to have been possessed after witnessing her father's brutal suicide.

Mary is off camera while her father takes his own life. In a scene that could play as a confessional or an accusation, the family's patriarch lists off the reasons why he is being forced to use his knife on Mary and himself. He details how they were a good, loving family and he can't understand why she is accusing him of abuse. Using demonic control as a metaphor for trauma survival is something so natural, I can't believe it's not woven into every film of this kind.
