Review: ‘Bullet Head’ Is A Pit Bull Thriller With A Ton of Bite

I have no idea if writer/director Paul Solet’s decision to stuff Adrien Brody in a piano was a not so subtle homage to Roman Polanski’s The Pianist. I also wonder if Solet loved the wish fulfillment endings of Carlito’s Way or Point Blank, but that’s neither here nor there, as though Bullet Head offer a few cinematic call backs, it’s a movie that stands on its own feet – even if it begins with man’s best friend . . .

Review: ‘Between Us’ (Ben Feldman, Olivia Thirlby)

One of the drawbacks of attempting to watch a movie a day is, if you’re a horrible planner, you’ll spend a lot of wasted time wondering which movie you’ll want to see on that given day. Close to an hour of Netflix browsing led me to Between Us, which I initially viewed as an insightful, if not innocuous romantic comedy toplined by Ben Feldman and Olivia Thirlby. My expectations for the film were low, and thank goodness the don’t judge a book by its cover take applied to this first rate narrative. Review below!!

DVD Review: “Where’s The Money” (Andrew Bachelor)

Having snap judgments about a movie before actually watching can, at times, restrict you from having a good time, and thankfully my preconceived notions of Where’s The Money were misguided. A mixture of internet content creators/stars (Andrew “King Bach” Bachelor, Logan Paul) and acting vets (Kat Graham, Terry Crews), Where’s The Money has its share of comedic surprises up its sleeve.

Review: 5 Reasons To Love ‘Tragedy Girls’

Tragedy Girls opens in New York and Los Angeles October 20, but thankfully it’s not a flick that comes out and is gone before the blink of an eye (leading to an immediate run on Blu-ray and streaming). If you’re a horror/comedy genre fan (Scream franchise comes to mind), Tragedy Girls should be your cup of tea (actually it’s more like a double espresso shot to the soul). Below are five reasons why I absolutely love (and highly recommend) Tragedy Girls.

Review: ‘Blood Stripe’ (Kate Nowlin, Chris Sullivan)

 

One of this year’s most standout performances comes from an indie film that is pretty much under the radar, but you can catch Blood Stripe this weekend at Beverly Hills’ Laemmle Music Hall.

 Review: ‘Last Rampage’ (Robert Patrick, Heather Graham)

 
The initial takeaway from Last Rampage: The Escape of Gary Tison’s is that Robert Patrick (TV’s The Unit, Terminator 2: Judgment Day) has never been better. As the titular character, Patrick is a force of nature, but thankfully director Dwight Little (Murder at 1600, Marked for Death) has many more wonderful cards in the deck.

Review: ‘American Assassin’ (Dylan O’Brien, Michael Keaton)

I’m writing this in a haphazard fashion, so forgive the random stream of consciousness as I was just thinking about Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, a flick I definitely want to see. This relates to the salmon aside I’ll mention later in the review, but for now let’s concentrate on American Assassin. Review is below and sorry for the lateness!
