September 19th, 2014 3:15pm EDT
Kelly & Cal
In the realm of creating memorable performances under the watchful eye of equally great directors, nobody has done more work of note then actress Juliette Lewis. A talented gal who earned her first Oscar nomination under the direction of Martin Scorsese for "Cape Fear" in her late teens, Lewis then went on to work on some of the most acclaimed films and with the most esteemed filmmakers Hollywood has to offer. Her latest film "Kelly & Cal" (in theaters Sept. 19 from IFC Films) sees Lewis continuing to add to her cache of layered performances by playing Kelly, a former punk rocker turned s...

Review: Kevin Smith's 'Tusk' A Bold Experiment That Ultimately Fails

Review: Kevin Smith's 'Tusk' A Bold Experiment That Ultimately F
Mixing comedy with horror is nothing new. Some of the all time great genre classics have either successfully meshed the two aspects brilliantly or made it so one truly enhances the other. In the case of the new Kevin Smith outing titled ‘Tusk’, one would think knowing the past hilarity the filmmaker has so handsomely delivered that horror would only strengthen his movie credibility. But it’s the absence of neither a smooth pairing nor any singular subject boost that plagues an innovative film that that could have been a real winner – it’s a bold and original experiment that ultimately fa...

Interview: Saluting The Work Of 'Fort Bliss' Star Michelle Monag
To say we’re fans of talented actress Michelle Monaghan is a bit of an understatement – we frankly adore her. From her memorable free spirited role opposite Robert Downey Jr. in Shane Black’s "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" to playing private detective with a conscience in "Gone Baby Gone" (not to mention her recently captivating work alongside Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey in "True Detective!"), Monaghan has always had a unique skill and spirit that makes her standout in every role she takes on. Her latest film "Fort Bliss" (out Sept. 19 from Phase 4 Films) is no different and features M...

Interview: The Ford Brothers On Inhabiting India For 'The Dead 2
For a pair of indie filmmakers, brothers Jonathan and Howard J. Ford are certainly well travelled. Their first film titled "The Dead" saw the pair heading off to the barren lands of Africa as the setting for their inspired zombie flick. For their second go around on the much anticipated sequel "The Dead 2" (out now on DVD and Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Home Entertainment) the horror loving brothers found themselves smack dab in the middle of lush location ridden India telling another tale of the undead. The film involves an American turbine engineer who finds himself racing against time and...

Deadly Dinner Chat With TV's 'Hannibal' Mads Mikkelsen

Deadly Dinner Chat With TV's 'Hannibal' Mads Mikkelsen
Stepping into a role previously inhabited by others is in itself quite a daunting task, but when that role is the infamous part of Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter the chance to create something original seems impossible. Actor Brian Cox managed to portray and convey an inner intensity as the demented doctor in "Manhunter" and of course Anthony Hopkins brought a sense of big grandiose to the captive killer in "Silence of the Lambs" and the two following films. But could else anyone fill the shoes of such an iconic serial killer? Enter Mads Mikkelsen. As a more calculated and intellectually...

Forgotten Friday Flick - 'Men At Work'

Men
Nothing beats the fall bad movie blues better then a colorful comedy, so this week we’re doing the nasty by wading through the garbage to find a diamond in the roughage... welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! This time out we’re diving headfirst into a lesser known comedy featuring work by two brothers who have chemistry down to a science. And in this outing the two strip away the glitz and glamour and get down and dirty as two uninspired sanitation engineers – garbage men to the layman. Before the Ducks got a coach and long before someone was ‘winning,’ Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen w...
