Indie Movie 'Band Of Robbers' Slaps The Status Quo

1/13/2016 12:05pm EST
Review: Original Indie 'Band Of Robbers' Slaps The Status Quo
With the looming Hollywood machine putting out fast food style flicks to be easily consumed by the masses, it’s getting harder and harder to find originality in cinema. It’s as if anything that doesn’t repeat the film formula seen a thousand times has become a rare commodity and on the verge of becoming an endangered species. That’s why the new buck the system five-star flick "Band of Robbers" is such an important and nifty notable. With it’s brash blend of genres, colorful characters and story that turns all standard tropes sideways, the film does something much more than just cleverly re...

However, this is not the usual doings of a dino as when Jim investigates the crime scene he discovers claw marks indented into the door, suggesting the Nycoraptor had been trapped in the station, waiting to pounce his way out.

At night, the security team spot what appears to be a Sixer out in the perimeter so they go and investigate. It turns out to be a terrified young girl, a la, the runaway.

The little girl, threatened by getting a jag, goes AWOL and hides under the table at the infirmary. Of course it’s Liz who comes to the rescue and forces everyone out of the facility. She’s able to lure her out and Liz discovers that the girl’s parents are dead and that she is a part of the Sixer team.

The Shannon family fly into another dino adventure!
After a stunning, jam-packed two episode pilot of ‘Terra Nova’ it seemed impossible for the series to continue drilling out chaotic, intriguing episodes. However, despite being filled with too many cliques to list, Instinct was still extremely enjoyable and it’s clear the Shannon family will be forced into nonstop gruelling adventure every week.

The beginning was very dark with us witnessing three Terra Nova campers in the jungle being murdered by God only knows what: a dinosaur, presumably. Taylor and his security team go out to investigate, believing Sixer’s to be up to mischief, and Jim...

Terra Nova
It came to no surpirse that Steven Spielberg's latest venture would be under huge pressure. The premiere of Jurassic Park meets Lost has aired and it's now time to decide: did 'Terra Nova' concour all high expectations?

The two hour debut wasn’t slow in pulling us straight into the action as we flied to the year 2149 where the human race is threatened by extinction. The only way in surviving this horrible fate is to travel to Terra Nova. That seems easy enough, until you throw in the fact that this place is 85 million years behind in prehistoric Earth.

Top Ten 'Coolest 80's Movie Characters' - w/Bonus Terrence 'Critters' Mann Interview!

Ug from Critters
Growing up as a movie geek, there were many fine flicks and more especially cool characters that had a major effect on me. Be it the tough silent type, the outgoing life of the party, or even the outsider with everything to prove I grew up mesmerized, captivated and ultimately wanting to be like the very epitome of what I had witnessed on the big screen. So in a tribute to the good men (and even women!) of film who molded me into the person I am today, I present this loving non-numbered list (they’re ALL #1 to me!) of the good, bad and ugly characters I adored from my childhood.

Following our earlier peeks at New Girl and The X Factor, it's time to talk about two new FOX comedies and one show we've been hearing about for what seems like forever. FOX's TCA (Television Critics Association) presentation continued with looks at Allen Gregory, I Hate My Teenage Daughter, Terra Nova, and the network's upcoming presentation of the Primetime Emmy Awards.

It was a case of deja vu: once again, FOX used a themed lunch to show us a new Sunday animated comedy. Last year, it was Bob's Burgers. This year, it was Allen Gregory. It's always struck me as a bit stra...

Brittany's TCA 2011 Blog: FOX - 'Chicago Code,' 'American Idol,' 'Terra Nova,' & More

Chicago Code
FOX had its Television Critics Association presentation Tuesday, and from my front-row (literally) seat, I confirmed what I felt has been the case for awhile: while the network has consistently strong dramas, it still needs to find some reliable comedies - at least when it comes to ones that aren't animated.

Here's how the day played out:

The Chicago Code

The highlight of my day was easily the presentation for Shawn Ryan's new drama, The Chicago Code (premiering February 7). Given Ryan's pedigree as the creator of The Shield, The Unit and the recently axed Terriers, the buzz - and the ex...

Public Enemies
In the action-thriller Public Enemies, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Mann directs Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard in the story of legendary Depression-era outlaw John Dillinger (Depp)—the charismatic bank robber whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoover's fledgling FBI and its top agent, Melvin Purvis (Bale), and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public.

No one could stop Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone—from his girlfriend Billie F...
