  1. Alive and KickingWed, 20 Sep 2017 10:02:22 PDT
    Highly Recommended The Movie:Like a few other people, the 90s films Swing Kids and Swingers introduced me to the world and machinations of swing dancing. But little did I know that the swing community has been sustaining itself nicely since then past the wave of nostalgia, as the Susan Glatzer documentary Alive and Kicking shows us.Glatzer herself is a swing enthusiast of almost two decades, so she has a familiarity with and passion for her subject, and she is comprehensive in her approach to it, looking at it from its origins in the early 20th century to its rise through the years, and the various substyles of swing dancing that exist (the film focuses primarily on the Lindy Hop, for the record). Interviews with some of those who have made an impact on the dance...Read the entire review More...
  2. Britney Ever AfterWed, 20 Sep 2017 06:50:29 PDT
    Skip It It's easy to scoff at the idea of a Britney Spears biopic for various reasons, but it makes sense. Spears' "Hit Me Baby (One More Time)" is arguably responsible for the current era of pop music, reflected today in the similarly bubblegum-colored, sexy-sweet stylings of Katy Perry and Carly Rae Jepsen. There's also something a bit more intriguing about Spears, who lived a tabloid-friendly life just before the era of TMZ. Spears' career has been back on track and going smoothly for awhile now, but the moment where Spears abruptly shaved off all of her hair and swung an umbrella at paparazzi still lingers in the public consciousness as a crack in the veneer of music stardom. Sadly, Britney Ever After, a cheap Lifetime movie about the singer's career, isn't even good trash, lazily breezing through some of the star's greatest personal hits with only a hint of a purpose in mind.The film uses the ...Read the entire review More...

  4. Phantasm - 5 Movie DVD CollectionMon, 18 Sep 2017 05:05:26 PDT
    Recommended In April, Well Go USA finally brought all five Phantasm movies to Blu-ray in a swanky six-disc package stuffed to the gills with bonus features. Now, five months later, Well Go has a second set on offer. This standard-def DVD set may not be a satisfying replacement for Blu-ray owners who wanted the new remastered presentations in their HD glory, but is an affordable alternative for casual fans, and features a reasonable chunk of the content produced by Well Go for the Blu-ray edition.As a franchise, Phantasm is a unique and bizarre beast. Following the exploits of Mike (A. Michael Baldwin...mostly), Reggie (Reggie Bannister) and Jody (Bill Thornbury) in a battle with the evil Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) across the country, through various time periods, and even into other dimensions, the films are a unique blend of horror, science fiction, and fantasy that constantly reinvents its own ...Read the entire review More...
  5. Killing HasselhoffFri, 15 Sep 2017 13:38:09 PDT
    Rent It The Movie:I'm not sure at what point we arrived to in film and/or television where David Hasselhoff was the latest entry in the rare land of famous people who are the center of films about them in fictional settings, but it's 2017 so anything can happen. And here we are, in a film where the former Baywatch star plays himself, similar to films (I think) that were done on Carrot Top and Pauly Shore. Strangely though, this film (called Killing Hasselhoff has a familiar face or two associated with it.Written by Peter Hoare and directed by Darren Grant (Diary of a Mad Black Woman), Hasselhoff isn't the star and is more of the background, with Chris (Ken Jeong, The Hangover)...Read the entire review More...
  6. Diamond CartelFri, 15 Sep 2017 13:38:09 PDT
    Skip It Director: Salamat Mukhammed-AliStarring: Karlygash Mukhamedzhanova, Armand AssanteYear: 2017Diamond Cartel is what you would get if you combined Sharknado with The Expendables and set it in Kazakhstan. I'm not kidding, it's that horrible of a concept, and how anyone in their right mind could want to turn it into an actual movie is beyond me. The director is Kazakh, this is his second attempt at a feature film, and his first also writing and producing the flick. It's safe to say that he might not know exactly what he's doing, although the same can surely be said about the minds behind the worst cinema in history, and that might not always be accurate. Regardless, this is 100 minutes of pure torture to...Read the entire review More...
  7. Cop and a Half: New RecruitWed, 13 Sep 2017 14:06:07 PDT
    Skip It The Movie:I remained oblivious, perhaps blissfully so, to the 1993 buddy cop/family film Cop & A Half with Burt Reynolds in a prime hairpiece era for him. I know it's out there, but there was never an urge to see it. Now for some reason, someone has decided to reboot? remake? Make another installment to the franchise. And great news! It's about what you'd expect it to be.Titled Cop and a Half: New Recruit, the cop in question is Simmons, played by Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba), a grizzled cop whose enthusiasm tends to have him break a rule or two in the department and run up against his captain. The half in question is Karina (Lulu Wilson, Deliver Us From Evil), a only child to a single mother, but she has a nose for dete...Read the entire review More...
  8. The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series (6 DVD Set)Wed, 13 Sep 2017 04:44:53 PDT
    DVD Talk Collector Series We have no idea why Time-Life chose to send us a screener of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series (6 DVD Set Collector's Edition). It appears to be a very slight repackaging of a set they released three years ago, but this reviewer is nonetheless more than happy to sing its praises. After Carson left the program in 1992, excerpts have turned up on places like YouTube, and there have been DVD clip show releases. This, however, is altogether different, a boxed set of 12 complete shows (along with some bonus clips) running more than 17 hours. Although Tonight Show episodes have turned up on "cable television" in recent years, those programs are, so I hear, heavily edited, mainly due to music licensing issues. However, the 12 shows collected here not only include all the musical guests and their complete performances, but also everything else, including film clips f...Read the entire review More...
  9. Betting on ZeroTue, 12 Sep 2017 07:51:18 PDT
    Highly Recommended Director: Ted BraunStarring: William AckmanYear: 2016In a time when one of America's favorite national arguments has reared its bitter head with renewed energy (capitalism vs socialism, free market vs big government, cutthroat competition vs equal protection), Betting on Zero is a documentary that will slide into the conversation with ease. It's specifically based on Herbalife; the company, the court cases, the sanctions, and the famous Ackman short. But it can't help also being about politics, using this bizarre story to highlight the two polar viewpoints that fight against one another and make our entire country spin. In case you don't know much about Herbalife, this documentary is here to fill you in, and it's a...Read the entire review More...
  10. Cinematic Titanic: The Complete CollectionTue, 12 Sep 2017 06:24:34 PDT
    Recommended Between the cancellation of the original show in 1999 and the Kickstarter for its revival in 2015, there have been three major attempts to revive the format of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" for a new generation, all by people who worked on the original program. Two of them, one successful and one unsuccessful, feature the team of Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett (arguably the "second generation" cast, even though Murphy voiced Servo for nine out of ten seasons of the "official" original series run, and was a writer and crew member from the beginning). The successful iteration is Rifftrax, which uses .mp3 files to allow the team to direct their zingers at big studio blockbusters without paying any licensing fees, and the failure was The Film Crew, a series of direct-to-DVD programs where they mocked the usual public domain schlock. The other major effort, Cinematic Titanic, came from t...Read the entire review More...
