    Rent It Director: Amit GuptaStarring: Andrea Riseborough, Tom Wlaschiha, Michael SheenYear: 2011I can't use the term "alternate history" without thinking of "alternative facts", so there goes that innocence, thanks Trump. It's ironic that both terms mean fiction when one of them is supposed to mean truth, but to avoid getting political, I'll attempt to slide past what my mind wants me to focus on and stick to the film at hand. Alternate history is an entertaining genre, re-imagining the past and reshaping it into what might have been. It's almost a form of science fiction, minus the science, or at least has a multi-dimensional feel that I enjoy, an other-worlds-than-these atmosphere that I like woven into a historic drama, which ...Read the entire review More...
  2. Tales Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Super ShredderWed, 22 Mar 2017 12:05:45 PDT

So, if you focus that idea, and have those drunks only tell historical stories, and then recreate those stories, using the actual inebriated ramblings as the dialogue and big-name comedy guest stars, you get an ingenious little se...Read the entire review More...

    Rent It The Film:Even to those dedicated fans of the Harry Potter series who have read every book and seen every movie, it can be tough to imagine how a magical sport like quidditch could operate in the real world without flying golden balls with wings and players soaring around on broomsticks. Some might be inclined to view it from the same perspective as they would with live-action role-playing, or LARPing, where spells and other mystical elements are "imagined" into existence. However, those who have seen this game in action know that the creators have condensed quidditch into a practical, physically taxing sport, where players cope with holding a shortened broom between their legs as a limitation or challenge instead of something fanciful. Explaining th...Read the entire review More...
  5. Sabrina Down UnderSat, 18 Mar 2017 17:28:18 PDT
    Skip It Sabrina Down Under:I have no earthly idea why this DVD is being released now, nor why I chose to review it. (If that doesn't set you up with confidence, reader, then I might need to turn in my reviewer's cap.) Sabrina Down Under is not the greatest. It feels like a made-for-TV movie, which indeed it it. Is Melissa Joan Hart nostalgia so pitched in 2017 that we need to see this lackadaisical 1999 effort? And even if it were, do we still need to see this? Do we?Sabrina is a teenage witch, (of Archie Comics fame) portrayed with preternatural perkiness by the aforementioned Melissa Joan Hart. With little discernable reason, we find Sabrina vacationing in Australia with her English witch buddy Gwen (played with only slightly less preternatural perkiness by Tara (Strong) Charendoff). While taking in the sights and mooning over a marine biologist, Sabrina discovers a merman. Before you ca...Read the entire review More...

  7. The Defenders: Season 1Mon, 13 Mar 2017 05:07:33 PDT
    Highly Recommended The Show: Long out of circulation, the legendary legal series The Defenders makes its belated arrival on DVD with a new Season One set from Shout! Factory. Starring E.G. Marshall and Robert Reed as a father-son team of defense attorneys, the show displays the intelligence and idealism of the best early television drama, even though it hit the airwaves in 1961 (technically after TV's original Golden Age).Created by 12 Angry Men writer Reginald Rose, The Defenders is not a mystery show in the Perry Mason/Matlock mold (although season one features a few different episodes where one of the hero attorneys gets a witness on the stand ...Read the entire review More...
  8. Sad Vacation: The Last Days Of Sid And NancyFri, 10 Mar 2017 15:14:48 PST
    Recommended Sad Vacation: The Last Days of Sid And Nancy:Danny Garcia continues telling the history of the punks in his important, shaggy documentaries, works which might illuminate viewers on the real story behind their t-shirt heroes, or which might make viewers feel: warm, fuzzy, old, conservative, loose, irritated, or invigorated. Maybe even all of the above. Music fans of a certain bent might find this DVD inevitable, or at the very least a bonafide rental.The titular vacation refers a little bit to a song by notorious New York junkie Johnny Thunders, and to the lightning-fast rise and fall of Sid Vicious, former scenester, one-time bass player for the Pistols, and lovesick idiot brought to ground by Nancy Spungen, the famous climber. It's a sad story, no matter how you look at it, and one already told to expert effect by Alex Cox in Sid & Nancy. (Devotees of that film, of which I am ...Read the entire review More...
  9. Maximum RideFri, 10 Mar 2017 08:28:50 PST
    Skip It Director: Jay MartinStarring: Allie Marie Evans, Patrick Johnson, Gavin LewisYear: 2016Maximum Ride might very well be the worst movie I have ever seen, which is saying something, given the terrible films I have watched over the course of my critical career. Any of us who have sat through the four Sharknado flops know just how bad cinema can be, but at least there's a way to defend that franchise, at least you know they were making their movies solely for entertainment purposes, with no desire to be taken seriously in the least. After seeing Maximum Ride, you get the sense that someone worked with intention, with a purpose, with a thought that what they were creating might actually be good. Well, it i...Read the entire review More...

    Recommended Film and television fans have had more reason than ever to lament Hollywood's underutilization of the great Judy Greer, what with a number of small and sometimes thankless roles in big-budget blockbusters like Jurassic World, Tomorrowland, Ant-Man, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Another set of film and television fans have had reasons to celebrate, in seeing the renaissance of character actor Natasha Lyonne's career through "Orange is the New Black". Anyone who fits in the part of the Venn diagram where those two types of people cross over may like to know, if they don't already, that an obscure 2015 indie comedy by Jamie Babbit (director of Lyonne's LGBTQ cult classic But I'm a Cheerleader) attempts to resolve the first and support the second, by casting Greer and Lyonne as sisters working in a hotel who get wrapped up in trying to get rid of a body th...Read the entire review More...
