I’ve always been a fan of the style and poised potential of bold indie filmmaker Gregg Araki. Whether the wild abandon vibe of "The Doom Generation" or the youthful hopelessness of "Mysterious Skin," Araki’s voice certainly stands out in all he undertakes. But now matched with an notable cast all delivering their best work, pitch perfect subject matter and a story befitting his slow and substantial sensibility, Araki’s latest titled "White Bird In A Blizzard" might just be his masterpiece. A coming of age tale meshed with a Lynch-like infused murder mystery proves to be just the material...

I’m seasoned enough to know that not every film is going to be a stunning achievement in cinematic history. Some movies are merely meant to entertain – provide escapism where needed. The problem lies in films that either think they are giving more with little to no extra effort (see the new Equalizer!) or those that merely go through the motions with zero thought to the folks who pay to see it. Thankfully the more style than substance grifting thriller "Plastic" is none of the above, instead a pleasant distraction with enough charisma and cool to keep the inner movie geek satisfied.

With the lackluster new film "The Equalizer" hitting theaters this weekend, it felt like the right time to show the mundane movie powers that be that action work can still possess awesome acting…welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Today’s movie has both popcorn fun and cool character depth all under the roof of the fantasy genre. It also introduced audiences to some of the most amazing actors of our generation while re-invigorating those already familiar. All this and dragons – oh, yeah!

For the sake of this review, I’m going to put aside my strong sentimental feelings for the highly underrated TV series upon which this movie is loosely based. And I’ll forget that it was a hard man in an unusual shell by the name of Edward Woodward that singlehandedly took a simple and somewhat familiar premise and elevated it to deep dark heights that lingered. But sadly even in the absence of such unforgettable beginnings, the new movie version of "The Equalizer" still manages to come out being just…okay. The cookie cutter mix of music video action sequences, clichéd bad guys and Denze...

Most great genre films have an element of surprise. Be it a clever twist, witty dialogue or a character that captivates, a strong story device out of left field can certainly raise stakes. Such is the case in the new horror movie “Run Like Hell” (now available on VOD from Gravitas Ventures), an old school homage that mixes “The Devil’s Rejects” with “The Hills Have Eyes” all with a John Carpenter-esk vibe. The film follows a group of two couples stranded in a small town where nothing is as it seems. But the interesting thing is one of the four folks Luke is a red herring of sorts - a mi...
