Earth to Echo

Title: Earth to Echo Directed By: Dave Green Starring: Teo Halm, Brian “Astro” Bradley, Reese Hartwig, Ella Wahlestedt “Earth to Echo” doesn’t come close to being the next “E.T.,” but it does pack enough spirit and fun to make it a worthwhile knockoff. Teo Halm, Brian “Astro” Bradley (yes, the kid from “The X Factor”) and Reese Hartwig lead as Alex, Tuck and Munch, three best friends who never really fit in until they found each other. However, with plans to build a highway straight through their Nevada suburb, their families are left with no choice, but to pack up and move away. In an effort to make their very  [ Read More ]

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Title: Transformers: Age of Extinction Directed By: Michael Bay Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, Titus Welliver, Sophia Myles, Bingbing Li, TJ Miller, James Bachman At one point, a “Transformers: Age of Extinction” character delivers this gem – “I also have a saying; I don’t care.” Why isn’t that the tagline of this movie? Or the whole “Transformers” film franchise for that matter? “Age of Extinction” takes place five years after “Dark of the Moon.” Even though the Autobots helped save mankind in Chicago, the US government classifies all Transformers as dangerous fugitives, forcing the Autobots to go into hiding. Meanwhile, Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg)  [ Read More ]

Title: Snowpiercer Directed By: Joon-ho Bong Starring: Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner, Ah-sung Ko, Alison Pill, Luke Pasqualino, Ed Harris Joon-ho Bong’s unprecedented combination of stunning combat, stylistic eccentricities and dramatic poignancy is so rich and enthralling, there’s no way one viewing of “Snowpiercer” will ever be enough. In an effort to thwart global warming, a chemical called CW-7 is released into the Earth’s atmosphere in 2014. Soon thereafter, the temperature plummets and the world is consumed by snow and ice. “Snowpiercer” begins in 2031, 17 years after the only survivors entered Wilford’s self-contained safe haven, a train that circles the  [ Read More ]

The Purge: Anarchy Gives You A Chance To Breakout

the-purge-anarchy-featured.jpg

I was a big fan for “The Purge” last year. The idea that for one night a year, all crime is legal was an interesting concept. The film was made on the cheap, for about $3 million, and managed to make upwards of $90 million at the box office. Needless to say, a sequel was immediately put into production. “The Purge: Anarchy” will hit theaters next month and there’s no telling how much more money this out-of-nowhere franchise can climb. Now you can experience “The Purge” before it hits theaters in July. Universal Pictures is hosting a touring exhibition called “The Purge: Breakout,” which gives fans a chance to “release  [ Read More ]

It’s been five years since Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) met Toothless and changed the way the people of Berk viewed dragons. Now, just about everyone has one, even Hiccup’s father, Stoick (Gerard Butler).

Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson in The Rover

Four years after delivering the film that would ultimately go on to earn Jacki Weaver her very first Academy Award nomination, writer-director David Michôd is back with his second feature film, “The Rover.” The film stars “Animal Kingdom” alum Guy Pearce as Eric, a loner roaming the desolate Australian outback where law enforcement is hard to come by and everything comes at a hefty price. When a group of criminals steals Eric’s car in the heat of a botched heist, he decides to pick up the wounded accomplice (Robert Pattinson) they leave behind so he track them down and get back his sole remaining possession. When you mark your feature  [ Read More ]

The Signal

It isn’t easy getting your first feature off the ground, but William Eubank managed to pull it off and in a rather unconventional manner. He didn’t attend a traditional film school or track down an industry contact willing to give him a shot. Eubank entered a Red Hot Chili Peppers music video contest – and lost. But he did wind up with quite the consolation prize – the band Angels and Airwaves agreed to both produce and score his first feature, “Love.” After four years of work that included building a fully realized space station set, writing, directing and shooting the film himself, Eubank wound up with a final product  [ Read More ]

Edge of Tomorrow Movie Review

Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow

Title: Edge of Tomorrow Directed By: Doug Liman Starring: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton, Brendan Gleeson, Jonas Armstrong, Kick Gurry, Franz Drameh, Dragomir Mrsic, Charlotte Riley, Noah Taylor Vicious aliens, wicked combat and Tom Cruise charm are all good fun, but what’s the point when the story makes no sense? Cruise is Major William Cage. He’s in the army and has a high rank, but he’s a man of media relations, not combat. When his superior (Brendan Gleeson) decides it’s time for the world to see him in battle, Cage finds himself face-to-face with invading ETs donning an ExoSuit equipped with heavy artillery he doesn’t know how to operate.  [ Read More ]

Maleficent

Title: Maleficent Directed By: Robert Stromberg Starring: Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Lesley Manville, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Brenton Thwaites Angelina Jolie playing Maleficent has loads of potential, but that alone can’t support a movie. This is “Sleeping Beauty” from Maleficent’s perspective. As a young fairy living in The Moors, Maleficent meets a human boy named Stefan (Sharlto Copley). As they get older, they remain friends until Stefan decides he’s really a power-hungry wannabe king and betrays Maleficent in exchange for the crown. When Stefan’s daughter Aurora (Elle Fanning) is born, Maleficent retaliates by putting a curse on the newborn, one that will have her slip into  [ Read More ]

This movie needs more Quicksilver! The year is 2023 and the world is in ruins thanks to the mutant-hunting machines known as the Sentinels.

Godzilla

Title: Godzilla Directed By: Gareth Edwards Starring: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Carson Bolder, CJ Adams, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn “Godzilla” is a little light on fully realized human characters, but what does that matter when you’ve got a 350-foot monster with an astonishing amount of fight and resolve to root for? When a mine collapses in the Philippines, Dr. Ishiro Serizawa and Dr. Vivienne Graham (Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins) come to check out what’s left behind and are shocked to find the radioactive remains of something inexplicably large.

Vampire Academy Blu-ray Art

Miss out on all the drama, romance, madness and bloodsucking that went down in “Vampire Academy” back in February? Well, Rose (Zoey Deutch), Lissa (Lucy Fry) and the rest of the St. Vladimir’s crew are all on their way back for the film’s Tuesday, May 20th DVD and Blu-ray release. Rose and Lissa are best friends, but Rose is a Dhampir and Lissa is a Moroi vampire so that means Rose is also Lissa’s protector – or rather a guardian-in-training for now. While the Moroi students at St. Vlad’s are required to study up on the elements and feed on willing donors at lunchtime, the Dhampirs are busy training to  [ Read More ]

Captain America: The Winter Solider Movie Review

Our review of Captain America: The Winter Solider.

Title: Captain America: The Winter Solider Directed By: Joe Russo, Anthony Russo Starring: Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones We’re talking about a hero with superhuman powers and a weapon with the ability to pinpoint villains via satellites capable of reading DNA and identifying a propensity to attack. It’s a downright outrageous scenario, but, dare I say, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” still feels like one of the most grounded Marvel movies out there. After the destruction in New York in “The Avengers,” Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is attempting to lay low to  [ Read More ]

Cheap Thrills Interview: Big Dares & Big Changes for Pat Healy

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On March - 30 - 2014 0 Comment
Pat Healy in Cheap Thrills

You know Pat Healy, right? Well, if you don’t, that means you probably haven’t seen “The Great World of Sound,” “The Innkeepers,” or “Compliance,” and that also means you have quite a bit of movie watching to do. But before you get to any of that, Healy’s latest feature is an absolute must. In fact, “Cheap Thrills” is easily the best film I caught on the film festival circuit in 2013. Healy leads as Craig, a loving husband and father who gets slapped with an eviction notice and loses his job all in the same day. In an effort to ease the pain, Craig hits the bar and that’s where  [ Read More ]
