‘American Exorcism’ VOD Review

26 May 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Filipowich, Kate Tumanova, William McKinney, Jessica Morris, Jennifer Lee Wiggins, Braxton Davis, Sicily Fontaine, John Paul Sales, Luke Wright | Written and Directed by Tripp Weathers

Retired demon wrangler Damon Richter is pulled back into the game when his estranged daughter is possessed by the spirit responsible for destroying his life and family. Together with his ex-priest pal, the bearded, tattooed beach bum sets about putting his own supernatural abilities to good use. That is, of course, when he isn’t busy posing moodily and glowering from beneath his impressive beard, like an over-filtered Instagram celebrity.

Of all the horror subgenres, few lend themselves to low budget quite like the exorcism movie. Sure, there’s room for all the fancy special effects, pea soup and levitating demons that money can buy, but all you really need to make it work is a bed, some chains and a profanity-laced script. »

Doug Liman Parts Ways With Justice League Dark Movie (Exclusive)

23 May 2017 4:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fans of the “Dark Universe,” a.k.a. “Justice League Dark,” comics are going to have to wait a bit longer for the film adaptation, as it just lost its director.

Sources tell Variety that director Doug Liman has left the project. Insiders say the reason is schedule-related, as Liman is also attached to direct Lionsgate’s “Chaos Walking,” which recently received a greenlight. Sources say the studio has already started meeting with other directors and should have a replacement for Liman lined up shortly.

Warner Bros., the studio behind the adaptation, had no comment.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, “Dark Universe” revolves around a dark Justice League team that consists of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, and Etrigan the Demon. The film will play a major role in the new D.C. Cinematic Universe.

Scott Rudin is producing. Michael Gilio is writing the script.

Catching Up with the Classics: ‘Preacher Vol.1: Gone to Texas’

9 May 2017 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Written by Garth Ennis | Art by Steve Dillion | Published by Vertigo

Synopsis: Merging with a bizarre spiritual force called Genesis, Texan Preacher Jesse Custer becomes completely disillusioned with the beliefs that he had dedicated his entire life to. Now possessing the power of “the word,” an ability to make people do whatever he utters, Custer begins a violent and riotous journey across the country. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip and the hard drinking Irish vampire Cassidy, the Preacher loses faith in both man and God as he witnesses dark atrocities and improbable calamities during his exploration of America.

My Background:

I actually picked up the first volume of Preacher a few years ago. My favorite comic book store was having a sale on graphic novels so I took advantage of it and pick up a few books that had been on my to read list. Preacher was one of »

Entertainment or Propaganda? A Brief and Critical Look at 'Christian Films'

14 April 2017 4:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Christian movies: Starring Nicolas Cage, the widely panned 2014 apocalyptic thriller 'Left Behind' was a box office bomb – unlike (relatively) recent popular 'faith movies' such as 'Heaven Is for Real,' 'Son of God' and 'War Room.' A thought on the New Christian American Cinema: Tired of the blatant propaganda found in 'mainstream' Christian movies Two films that might be called “Christian movies” opened last week, and I decided that I wouldn't watch them, write about them, or review them – at least directly. I'm not even going to mention their titles here because I don't promote propaganda films, and that's what this recent advent of Christian movies has become: propaganda. After all, since nearly all American cinema is Christian cinema, the New Christian American Cinema is in fact pure propaganda – not cinema. Worse yet, it bores me. So, here's the thing about what we've come to call »

Keanu Reeves: The King of Action!

16 February 2017 2:29 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on Keanu Reeves, the king of action…

With John Wick: Chapter 2 in cinemas now, it seems a good time to take a look back over Keanu Reeves’ forays into the action genre. Over the years Reeves has dipped his toes into just about every genre. He broke out of course in comedy, becoming forever identified as Ted Theodore Logan in the two Bill and Ted films. He’s done dramas, thrillers, romance and horror films. He’s even done Shakespeare (not that the world, or indeed Reeves himself needs reminding of that). However, Ted Logan aside, his most iconic work has been in the action genre.

The ageless Reeves took his first foray into the genre back in 1991 with the cult classic, Point Break. Whilst undoubtedly he was overshadowed by Patrick Swayze in the film, what was apparent was that Reeves, while still actively trying to shake »

Film Review: ‘John Wick: Chapter 2’ Adds Artistry to Mass Murder

16 February 2017 6:08 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It takes a special kind of film that enthralls the audience so much that they stop caring about the body count and are more concerned with the main character running out of bullets. “John Wick: Chapter 2” offers the same cathartic effect as watching a Nazi get punched but in an infinitely more picturesque package.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

John Wick: Chapter 2” came, saw and slaughtered the entire sequel game. This film has set the standard for how action film sequels should be more ambitious than their predecessors. More than that, “John Wick” has become a case study on what elements are needed for successful and fulfilling franchise building. Director Chad Stahelski has spent his career building up to this glorious point. As a stunt coordinator on several major action films, many starring Keanu Reeves (“Point Break”, “The Matrix Trilogy”, “Constantine”), Stahelski has both the action and Keanu experience to create a decent action film. »

The Tao of Keanu Reeves, From 'Whoa!' to 'John Wick'

10 February 2017 8:27 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The appeal of Keanu Reeves – philosopher, lover, martial artist, musician, motorcycle enthusiast, movie star – is that he carries himself lightly, even in the movies that require him to turn from "cool breeze" (the Hawaiian translation of his first name, for those of you playing at home) to howling tempest. He's the type of guy who's had to deny being Buddhist, even though he's played the Buddha onscreen – because it's just widely assumed that he would swing that way religiously. ("I haven't take refuge in the dharma," he has assured us. »

Justice League Dark Review: Bloody, Violent and Confusing

26 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Brothers Animation second foray into R-rated territory doesn't quite make-up for the debacle of The Killing Joke, but it's a step in the right direction. Justice League Dark takes our venerated superheroes into supernatural territory. I was slightly aware of the Justice League Dark comics. The film is worthy of the R-rating. It's markedly violent and truly dwells in the mystical realm, but is burdened by an overly intricate plot with multiple characters. The digital release allowed me to rewind a few times to check on confusing points. In a sense the film had my rapt attention, but is overloaded with details. Blink a few times here and you'll be completely lost.

Justice League Dark opens with ordinary people committing horrific crimes. They are hallucinating being attacked by demons; then doing anything possible to fight back. Superman (Jerry O'Connell) and Wonder Woman (Rosario Dawson) bring the global events to »
