There’s just no denying the fact that we love actress Danielle Harris. From her early work playing memorable kid roles in films like Halloween 4 and 5 and "The Last Boy Scout" to her more adult fare with "Stake Land" and "The Victim," Harris just keeps captivating us with each outing. Her latest sees her going back into familiar territory as she once again goes toe-to-toe with monster Victor Crowley in "Hatchet III." Reprising her role as the emotional Marybeth, Harris’s role this time around calls for a more sullen, scared and surprisingly sassy turn that is by far her best work yet. W...

Since the releases this week appear to be not only the weakest of the summer season, but also not exactly action filled, we thought we’d add a little immortal swordplay fun to the upcoming weekend. There can be only one – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick. The selection this week has a little something for everyone. The guys get cool action, the historians some medieval battles, the gals some romantic angles and for the bullies you got one mean mother looking for your head. Welcome Conner MacLeod of the clan MacLeod – the..."Highlander!"

Most story elements within thrillers have been already done to death. A man on the run, mistaken identity, the fate of one’s family in the balance and a detective with good gut feelings are all so familiar that they’ve become staples of the suspense genre. Though what if a film came along having all of the above accouterments, but managed to keep you glued to the screen anyway? So is the fate of the engaging new French import "The Prey," a seemingly recognizable story that still holds attention like a good book that you can’t put down.

There are just some actors that you can bring into any situation, any script, good or bad and they’ll knock it out of the park for you – Rob Corddry is one such talent. An actor, comedian and character journeyman, Corddry has made a career out of playing little characters with big memorable qualities. From his unforgettable work on "The Daily Show" to fabulous turns in films like "Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay," "Hot Tub Time Machine" and most recently "Warm Bodies," there’s no cinematic situation Corddry can’t bring comedic life to. His latest is the very dark and funny film...

Over my years as a critic (yeah, I’m getting old!) I’ve always maintained that too much talk can bog a film down. Meaning endless still chatter instead of forward moving action can make a cinema experience feel like watching a stage play. The new film "Violet & Daisy" starts off killer, with a style and speed reserved for novices like David Fincher and John Woo, but then tragically turns to talk. It would have ground the flick to a halt and been destined for the bargain bin if not for one small thing – the performances.
Young gum-chewing teens for hire, Violet and Daisy are a killer co...

When one hears the film title like "Hanna Has a Ho-Phase" (available VOD and iTunes on June 7 from Hourglass Entertainment) some graphic and sensual images most likely come to mind. But surprisingly the film, about a gal who decides to explore her more amorous side (while her best friend in turn is forced to abstain!), is also rich in comedy, romance, honesty and most importantly heart. Directed by two budding female filmmakers Jamie Jensen & Nadia Munla and made with an entirely female production team, the movie takes a look at issues of female sexuality but with a very engaging and funn...

A filmmaker with a knack for creating very memorable work so far, Director Jonathan Levine has managed to carve out a name for himself with merely a handful of stellar films. One of his first, the five-star Amber Heard starring horror outing "All The Boys Love Mandy Lane," was hailed by critics (myself included!) as a real unique stamp on a familiar genre. He followed it up with the very touching coming of age drama called "The Wackness" and finally topped it off with the comedy/drama balancing act "50/50" with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen. His latest is no less original, taking t...

It’s always hard to create a thorough documentary when the person being dissected has passed on. It then falls to family, friends and co-workers to paint a picture that hopefully gives sound to an empty voice. Sometimes that voice is heard loud and clear and sometimes not. In the case of the new documentary "Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie," the film is not unlike the circus spectacle the famed talk show host was so famous for creating – big, bawdy, but simply for show.
Back in the 80’s, chain smoking talk show host Morton Downey Jr. was the king of controversial. His in-your-fa...
