Review: Authentically Unique 'Cold In July' Keeps Mickle In Master Of Mood Territory

May 23rd, 2014 12:20pm EDT
Review: Authentically Unique 'Cold In July' Keeps Mickle In Mast
I admit it – I’m a huge Jim Mickle fan. Right from the filmmaker’s debut with the best of the 8 Films To Die For flick titled "Mulberry St.," there was obvious evidence of skilled craftsmanship. Following it up with the dark and visceral "Stake Land" and the five-star slow burn cannibal yarn "We Are What We Are" (firmly on my Top Ten list last year) showed that Mickle was not some hack – his genius was no fluke. So it’s fitting that his latest outing "Cold In July," based on the novel by "Bubba Ho-Tep" short story scribe Joe R. Lansdale, keeps in tone the director’s master of mood monike...

Check Out 'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy,' Now On DVD & Digital

December 27th, 2011 10:57am EST
A Good Old Fashioned Orgy
An arrested adolescent hell-bent on good times decides to throw a different sort of bash in the comedy "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy."

Eric (Jason Sudeikis) is in his early 30s, but he hasn't changed much since his high school days - the guy lives to party with a handful of his old friends, and the crazier the get-together, the better. Every summer, Eric throws an epic-scale theme party at his parents' home in the Hamptons, as he and his pals get crazy at the "White Trash Bash" or a "Star Wars vs. Star Trek" throwdown. However, this grand tradition is about to end, as Eric's dad (Don Johnson...

DVD Review/Interview: 'The Future' Filmmaker Miranda July On Time, Mortality and Working With Wayne Wang

December 7th, 2011 3:10pm EST
The Future
If there’s one word that accurately encapsulates the actress/performance artist/writer and director that is Miranda July it’s enigma. Being one of the most unique, unconventional and altogether honest talents working in entertainment today, July is a one-woman force to be reckoned with. Her latest film outing titled "The Future" (available now on DVD from Lionsgate Home Entertainment) is no less potent, a tale of a thirty-something couple that decide to adopt a stray cat and find their very life together and time itself changing. It’s one curiously inimitable look at the hope and heartac...

'A Good Old Fashioned Orgy' Is A Good Old Fashioned Raunchy Comedy

September 1st, 2011 7:35pm EDT
Fez's aren't Indian, but that's ok.
If the title "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" alone doesn't grab you, odds are no one is grabbing you (in the good way) period, and this movie isn't for you. But if it did and someone does, I'd check it out.

And, if it wasn't for all the sex and nudity and orgies (okay, only one orgy), I'd probably recommend “A Good Old Fashioned Orgy” for the entire family. Or at least for entire groups of (close) friends.During a summer in which a romantic comedy made audiences seriously think about Alzheimers, and a silly fighting movie reminded us of the dangers of domestic and child abuse, it's about damn ...

We spotted Lake Bell at the "A Good Old Fashioned Orgy" Los Angeles premiere on Thursday. She wore an interesting black dress. What do you think of her look?

In the film, Eric (Jason Sudeikis) is in his early 30s, but he hasn't changed much since his high school days. Every summer, he throws an epic-scale theme party at his parents' home in the Hamptons.

However, this grand tradition is about to end, as Eric's dad (Don Johnson) has announced he's selling the house. Eric decides he should save the biggest party for last, and tells his friends he's hosting an orgy.

Rachel Uchitel Is An A-List Celeb Now?

Rachel UchitelRachel
Former Tiger Woods mistress Rachel Uchitel attended the 32nd Annual Carousel Of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills on Saturday night, but we can't figure out exactly why.

The $1,000 per-plate gala was attended by numerous A-list celebrities, including Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony, Jane Fonda, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Akon, Don Johnson, Stevie Wonder, Paris Hilton, Lisa Rinna & Harry Hamlin and Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez. But if we recall correctly, having sex with a professional golfer behind his wife's back does not an A-lister make.

Don Johnson's 'Nash Bridges' Award Doubles

Don Johnson
Don Johnson has spoken of his "sense of vindication" after a judge granted him a further $28 million in a battle with TV bosses over his 1990s show Nash Bridges.

The actor was awarded $23.2 million in July after successfully suing bosses at production company Rysher Entertainment, Inc., claiming he was owed 50 per cent of the profits from the show because he owned half of the cop drama's copyright.

And on Wednesday he was victorious again - Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Stern ruled that Johnson is due more than $28 million in interest. Johnson, who played a San Francisco cop ...

I apologize to my regular readers that this column is appearing much later than it normally does.

Don Johnson Attacked By Warthog

September 1st, 2010 11:27am EDT
Don Johnson
Veteran actor Don Johnson put his survival skills to the test during a recent wildlife safari - when he and his wife were attacked by a wild warthog.

The Miami Vice star took his partner Kelley on a trek to Africa, and the trip took a dangerous turn when they spotted a pack of "four or five" of the beasts in the bush near their camp - and one came charging at the couple. However, Johnson was quick to react, and fought off the animal like "a lion tamer" with a nearby chair.

He recalls, "We step into this open area, I look up, and there's this warthog along the way. He sees me and starts...

'Machete' Will Solve The Immigration Debate

Machete-Immigration-Debate
You know Machete is going to take out the bad guys. You can tell by the name, and the image of Danny Trejo wearing a trench coat full of machetes. You might not have known that he’s also going to solve the immigration debate.

“There are real issues going on in just about any movie that’s got fun elements to it,” writer/director Robert Rodriguez said. “This is just something that’s very current. It really polarizes people because it is a real issue. People want to see an answer. Our answer, in the movie, is Machete because it is such a huge problem, not that he’s even trying to solve it.

He suggested the series bosses earned more than $300 million in revenues and more than $150 million from syndication, and called for a $100 million settlement.

Artists To Check Out This Month: Thomas Ian Nicholas, Magnetic Fields & Kate Nash

Thomas Ian Nicholas
The actor-musician hybrid is a tricky thing. It's a road peppered with the long-decomposed carcasses of Russell Crowe, Eddie Murphy and heaven forbid, David Hasselhoff.

Thomas Ian Nicholas

"Without Warning"

As a fresh-faced mop top in 1992's Rookie of the Year, Thomas Ian Nicholas was destined for a career of Tony Danza-dom. Known to the vast majority of Americans as Kevin from the American Pie flicks, who knew that Nicholas had visions of hypersensitive John Mayer-warbling beating around in his thickly trussed head?

On his latest release, "Without Warning," Nicholas a...

Check out the third season of Miami Vice. The series starred Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas as hard-nosed Miami-Dade PD vice detectives Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs.

Also on DVD: season 3 of JAG, season 5 of Newsradio and season 2 of Sleeper Cell.
